"The Masters of the Poster, first published in Paris from 1895 to 1900, is the most famous compilation ever made of the art of the great age of the poster-an art whose new graphic sophistication captured the ebullience of Paris life in the late 19th century, and celebrated the emerging spirit of the 20th century" (Applebaum, The Complete "Masters of the Poster").Paris: Chaix, 1898. 15.5x11.25in, 395x285mm.

      (N.p., c. 1886). A signed original drawing in ink over pencil by Birch, who is best known for illustrating Burnett’s classic work for children, Little Lord Fauntleroy, published in 1886.

Above is a scroll saying “Wishes,” and a wishbone. This drawing never appeared in the book. The artist has erased and drawn over the original outline of the girl’s figure. On the back the words “The Birch Boy and the Greenaway Girl” are crossed out and replaced with “Fauntleroy and the Greenaway Girl.” On wove paper, 17 by 19 inches, matted.

        Autograph Transcription, signed ("S. Fillmore Bennett"), of his hymn "The Sweet By-and-By," as part of his Autograph Transcription "History of The Sweet By-and-By copied by the author for C.F. Gunther, Chicago"; with an Autograph Letter of transmission to C.F. Gunther

      Richmond IL may 14 1886 Richmond, IL, may 14, 1886. 12mo. In all, 6 pp. on ruled note paper. Sewn, near fine . Bennett (1836-1898) composed the lyrics to what was to become one of America's most well known hymns in 1861, with music by Joseph P. Webster. The account of its composition, in less than 30 minutes, is given in this manuscript "History": "- I said, 'Webster, what is the matter now?' 'It's no matter,' he replied, 'it will be all right by and by.' The idea of the hymn came to me like a flash of sunlight, and I replied, 'The Sweet By and By! Why would not that make a good hymn?' 'Maybe it would,' he said indifferently. Turning to my desk I penned the words of the hymn as fast as I could write. I handed the words to Webster. As he read his eyes kindled, and stepping to the desk he began writing the notes. Taking his violin, he played the melody and then jotted down the notes of the chorus. It was not over thirty minutes from the time I took my pen to write the words before two friends with Webster and myself were singing the hymn -" "The Sweet By-and-By" was featured in the Academy Award winning film "Sergeant York"; Charles Ives used the tune in his Orchestral Set No. 2; it has become one of America's most reecognizable hymns

This copy has black and not yellow endpapers and lacks the advertisements mentioned by Gilbert but correct on all other points. , Waite, Arthur Edward (1857-1942) was an English mystic and historian of occultism who, after the death of his father, was raised by his devout Roman Catholic mother. However after the death of his sister in 1874 Waite was drawn to spiritualism and from there to theosophy, alchemy and the occult. Alphonse Louis Constant (Eliphas Levi) was little known outside of France until he was quoted extensively by Blavatsky in &#39;Isis Unveiled&#39;. It was this that led Waite to begin a translation of Levi&#39;s major work, eventually suggesting to the Theosophist A.P. Sinnet that he produce an anthology of Levi&#39;s writings. Sinnet introduced Waite to the publisher George Redway and so Waite began his long association with Redway., 8vo 8" - 9" tall, xliii [i] 349 [3] pp .
