London: Elliot Stock (1890). 4to. 115pp. An interesting history of the most important early monuments in England, many dating from prehistoric times. An extensive review of stone circles, pillars, cairns, and earthworks, along with illustrations. Kains-Jackson is better known for his Uranian writings and his association with Baron Corvo. Very good in 1/4 vellum and paper boards, some browning to vellum and darkening of blue paper boards, corners a bit worn. An attractive book nonetheless.

London: The Century Guild: Hobby Horse (October 1892). 4to. The Hobby Horse was a quarterly Victorian periodical in England published by the Century Guild of Artists and ran from 1884–1894. Unlike its successors, The Yellow Book and The Savoy, The Hobby Horse was not solely committed to an elite aestheticism and it contained a variety of essays on the social role of art and artists. This issue contains a long and laudatory essay by Sayle, a fellow Uranian poet, on Nicholson's collection of pederastic sonnets, Love in Earnest. See d'Arch Smith, Love in Earnest @ 76. A very good copy of an uncommon publication, covers are lightly marked and browned with edgewear and some light loss to spine.
