SCARCE FIRST EDITION of Au Bonheur des Dames (The Ladies' Delight or The Ladies' Paradise) which is the eleventh novel in the Rougon-Macquart series by Émile Zola. The novel is set in a department store, still an innovative development in mid-nineteenth century France. Zola's plan for the Rougon-Macquart novels was to show how heredity and environment worked on members of one family over the course of the Second French Empire. The department store is a symbol of capitalism, the modern city, and the bourgeois family. It is emblematic of changes in consumer culture, sexual attitudes, and class relations taking place at the end of the century. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Ulrike").

      Triblitz, 27. V. 1883.. 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo.. An eine "liebe Bertha" mit Nachrichten aus dem Familienkreis: "[...] Meiner Schwester geht es ganz leidlich u. B [...] jezt auch wieder besser", doch sei "zu fürchten, daß sich das Übel wiederholt, da es ja nicht ganz geheilt werden kann wenn es richtig ist was die Herren Doktoren sagen; sie irren aber auch öfters [...]". - Goethe hatte 1821 die damals Siebzehnjährige während eines längeren Kuraufenthaltes in Marienbad kennengelernt und sich in sie verliebt; zwei Jahre darauf unterstand der Vierundsiebzigjährige sich auch nicht um ihre Hand anzuhalten, gar Großherzog Karl August von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach dazu einzuspannen, in seinem Namen um die Neunzehnjährige zu werben. "Äußere Widerstände, nicht zuletzt aber eine zögernde Antwort Ulrikes bewegten ihn jedoch zum Verzicht. Der erschütternde Niederschlag dieser, wie Goethe selbst spürte, letzten 'seligen Liebe' seines Lebens wurde die 'Marienbader Elegie'" (Boerner, S. 125): "Und wenn der Mensch in seiner Qual verstummt | Gab mir ein Gott zu sagen was ich leide". - Tadellos erhalten. - Vgl. Peter Boerner: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Mit Selbstzeugnissen und Bilddokumenten. 200. bis 207. Tsd. Reinbek bei Hamburg, Rowohlt, 1990 (= Rowohlts Monographien, 100).

        Le Vingtième Siècle. Texte et dessins par A. Robida.

      Georges Decaux,, Paris, 1883 - In-4° (300x190mm), pp. (4), 404, legatura coeva m. pelle rosso vivo con titolo e fregi dorati su dorso a nervetti. Piatti in percallina rossa. Sguardie marmorizzate. 50 incisioni f.t., su disegno di Robida stesso, sia in b.n. che a colori, eseguite in varie tecniche (10 sono in collotipia, 32 in gillotipia, 8 sono invece in fine coloritura a mano), e numerosissime altre in b.n. intercalate n.t. Alcuni aloni e macchie ai piatti, sparse fioriture interne, piccoli restauri ad alcune tavv. Buon esemplare. Edizione originale di uno dei più ricercati e singolari volumi di Robida (Compiègne, Oise, 1848-Neuilly-sur-Seine, 1926), celebre scrittore, illustratore, pittore, litografo e acquarellista. Con fervida fantasia, l'autore descrive, illustra le invenzioni, il costume e la moda del XX secolo. Il volume, ambientato nel 1952, anticipa tra l'altro l'invenzione del telefono, la televisione, la partecipazione delle donne alla vita politica e all'avvocatura, le case in cartapesta, lo sviluppo delle città in senso verticale, l'aeroplano, l'elicottero, le guerre civili e mondiali, i viaggi interplanetari, l'arrivo dell'uomo sulla Luna e la sua colonizzazione. "Il sera surtout recherché pour ses anticipations, par son crayon divinatoire, pressenti les modes de locomotion future et les procédés de guerre moderne. C'est un Gustave Doré au service d'un Jules Verne" (Efuard-Joseph, "Dictionnaire des Artistes contemporaines", III, p. 214). "Les commentateurs du style de Robida insistent sur sa fécondité, sur la diversité de ses sources d'inspiration et la flexibilité de sa manière en fonction des sujets, sur sa fantaisie inventive aussi bien quant à la narration que quant à l'illustration, toutes qualités de spontaneité qui ne négligent pourtant jamais l'exactitude des informations portées par son dessin, qu'il s'agisse de sujets futiles ou sérieux" (Bénézit).

"The material offered by observations on the journey is various beyond enumeration, and much of it is extremely amusing. Hoaxes and exaggerations palmed off by pilots and other natives along the way upon supposed ignorant strangers; stories of gamblers and obsolete robbers; glimpses of character and manners; descriptions of scenery and places; statistics of trade; Indian legends; extracts from the comments of foreign travelers, -- all these occur, interspersed with two or three stories of either humorous or tragic import, or of both together."

        Collection of 36 Autograph Letters signed, from Alexander Gunn to William C. Whitney, and 2 letters from acquaintances of Gunn's to Whitney and Senator Mark Hanna

      n.p., ca. 1883-1901. n.p., ca. 1883-1901. (ZOAR) In all, 39 letters vols., Various sizes. . Generally in very good condition, some with original envelopes . Gunn, a friend of William C. Whitney, McKinley, and Mark Hanna, was a wealthy Cleveland businessman who retired to spend the last 20 years of his life in Zoar, the commune in Ohio. His note-books, covering-1901, were discovered after Gunn's death, edited by Don Seitz and published by WILLIAM COLLINS WHITNEY. Wesson, in MIDLAND NOTES, states: "Gunn's notes provide us with an enchanting picture of the pellucid life in the famous community of which he became a member. Though he fought to the last for the preservation of the community which he loved so dearly, ironically enough, it was his fireside stories of life in the land of flesh-pots that resulted in its dissolution by the dissatisfied younger members." The Zoar Society originated after 1817, when approximately 350 German immigrants, mostly poor, came to eastern Ohio and settled on a tract of 5,000 acres of land, along the banks of the Tuscarawas River. They were comprised of both Lutherans and Roman Catholics, who were coming to America to escape persecution. Joseph Bimeler was a teacher who became their political and religious leader. The village was named after the biblical city to which Lot fled from Sodom and Gomorrah Under the community Articles of Association, the earnings of every individual were to be turned over to a common treasury. While some families remained intact, there were some families which were broken up due to poverty, so that some homes were comprised only of men, while others were comprised only of women. The primary occupation in the community was farming, producing food for the community and for sale Gunn was was taken with Zoar and at the time of his retirement, the Society gave him the right to occupy one of the cabins in the northeast end of town, which Gunn named "The Hermitage." Gunn was the first "outsider" to be allowed into the village as a resident Mr. Gunn soon remodeled and furnished The Hermitage in luxury, and it became a fabulous club house where he did a great deal of entertaining. Among his guests were men such as William Whitney of New York and Mark Hanna of Cleveland Most of these letters were written while Gunn was at Zoar, many on "Zoar Society" stationary, others headed "The Hermitage." Gunn refers to Whitney several times as his best friend, and several of the letters offer anxious inquiries about the health of Whitney's wife, Flora, and deep condolences after her death. In a letter dated April 23, 1900, Gunn tells Whitney of the arrival of the book "The Cookbook by Oscar of the Waldorf," which included several of Gunn's cocktail recipes and which was inscribed to him by Oscar Tschirky; he transcribes the recipes for Whitney Other letters are written from abroad: Paris, San Francisco, Santa Barbara. Gunn sends Whitney a leaf from his journal, written at Lake Como in 1883. Also included is a telegram from Gunn to Whitney, dated April 29, 1901, shortly before Gunn's death, requesting that Whitney arrange to pick him up at the New York train station and transport him to a hospital. Gunn died shortly thereafter

Illustrated throughout with many engraved plates by Arthur B. Frost and Henry HolidayContaining his longest epic poem Phantasmagoria, amongst other poems. Phantasmagoria is a narrative discussion written in seven cantos between a ghost (a Phantom) and a man named Tibbets. Carroll portrays the ghost as not so different from human beings: although ghosts may jibber and jangle their chains, they, like us, simply have a job to do and that job is to haunt. Just as in our society, in ghost society there is a hierarchy, and ghosts are answerable to the King (who must be addressed as Your Royal Whiteness) if they disregard the Maxims of Behaviour. Condition: In a green cloth binding. Externally sound, though with a few marks and some bumping. Hinges are tender. Internally, binding strained in places.
