        An Unsocial Socialist

      London: Swann Sonnenschein, . First Edition.. First issue, with "The Confessions of Byron Cashel's Profession" printed on the title page. Very scarce in the first issue. A good copy, perhaps even a little better, but worn and tired and with wear and even some chipping to extremities. However, the copy owned by Fabian pioneer and comrade-in-arms, Hubert Bland, signed by him and dated 1887 on the half-title. In addition to his own merits as a radical journalist, both separately and in company with the magnificent E. Nesbit, his wife, Bland would provide in the person of his wife, one of the great love objects of the early (sic) life of Mr. Shaw. The rear blank bears a few page numbers in pencil in an unknown hand, corresponding to scored passages in the text. A book that demands one fall to sleep and dream about it, though one is unlikely to awaken with much more than a feeling strange satisfaction. . First Edition. London, Swann Sonnenschein, 1887. 256 pages. Original Hardcover (red cloth) in protective Mylar. Gilt lettering on spine and front board. First issue, with "The Confessions of Byron Cashel's Profession" printed on the title page. Very scarce in the first issue. A good copy, perhaps even a little better, but worn and tired and with wear and even some chipping to extremities. However, the copy owned by Fabian pioneer and comrade-in-arms, Hubert Bland, signed by him and dated 1887 on the half-title. In addition to his own merits as a radical journalist, both separately and in company with the magnificent E. Nesbit, his wife, Bland would provide in the person of his wife, one of the great love objects of the early (sic) life of Mr. Shaw. The rear blank bears a few page numbers in pencil in an unknown hand, corresponding to scored passages in the text. A book that demands one fall to sleep and dream about it, though one is unlikely to awaken with much more than a feeling strange satisfaction. Sidney Trefusis is a proselytizing socialist. Armed with irony and paradox, he is determined to overthrow a society riddled with class and sexual exploitation. Henrietta, his adoring wife, 'loves' him: he must abandon her. Son of a millionaire, he gives up everything to pose as an 'umble peasant'. But when this unsocial socialist goes to work as a gardener in the vicinity of a girls' school he meets his match - for Agatha Wylie is a new kind of woman, perfectly armed: and she doesn't love him. With the character of his clown-prophet Trefusis, George Bernard Shaw presented for the first time his view of what the relationship between the sexes should be. Galloping, exuberant, and irresistibly entertaining, AN UNSOCIAL SOCIALIST is a brilliant satire on social prejudice from a great author of the past.

        Letter, signed. To Julius L. Brown of Atlanta, Georgia, regarding new information contradicting the received version of the capture of Querétaro, the execution of the Emperor Maximilian, and the fall of the Mexican Empire

      Mexico City, august 17 1887. (MEXICAN HISTORY) 4to. 3-1/2 pp. on a single folded leaf of blank stationery. In English translation by the erstwhile US Ambassador to Mexico (1873-1880), and future Secretary of State under Benjamin Harrison, JOHN W. FOSTER (1836-1917), grandfather of John Foster Dulles. A few small chips at edges with loss of a few letters, minor soiling. In red and brown morocco-backed clam shell box . A letter from one J. Montismo, amateur historian (?), who writes to the well-known Georgia collector, Julius L. Brown, concerning new findings relating to the death of the Emperor Maximilian I, after the siege of Querétaro. The traditional version is that Maximilian was betrayed to the Republicans by his own Colonel Miguel Lopez, then executed by the Republican General Escobedo. Montismo writes (via Foster's translation) a lengthy rebuttal of that traditional story: "- General Escobedo, as well as colonel Lopez himself have been obliged to reveal the secret that they had kept so long and so well; and which related to the capture of the city of Querétaro - Important authentic documents (a photographic copy of one of which I herewith send to you with my compliments [not present]) - have been brought to light, which reveal that Maximilian himself was the one who proposed arrangements to General Escobedo, to betray his companions who were fighting for his cause, and sacrificing them to their enemies, his commissioner and envoy for that purpose being the aforesaid Miguel Lopez -"

        La Tentation de Saint Antoine: Feerie a grande spectacle. en 2 actes et 40 tableaux. Par Henri Riviere. Representee pour la premiere fois sur le theatre du Chat Noir le 28 decembre 1887. Musique nouvelle et arrangee de MM. Albert Tinchant et Georges Fragerolle

      Paris: E. Plon, Nourrit et Cie, Imprimeurs-Editeurs, 1887. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Oblong small 4to, original color printed cloth-covered boards, original pale-blue endpapers, all edges stained red; pp. 87, [1], with lithographic music staves (in b/w) and illustrations (in full color) throughout. Boards uniformly foxed and stained, though still attractive, and internally bright and pristine. In 1887, Henri Riviere revolutionized George Auriol and Henry Somm's puppet theater, which had originated on the Chat Noir's third-floor "Salle des Fetes" in 1855. His new and revolutionary "shadow theatre" involved the use of silhouettes combined with the latest photomechanical relief-printing processes. With a 1.12- x 1.4-meter screen and an immrense backstage attached to the outside of the building, layers upon layers of visual material created perspective and, with the addition of glass painted panels, lighting, music, and voice, combined for an effect that was innovative and "Modern" in the most contemporary sense of the word. The haut-monde trouped to see it. LA TENTATION DE SAINT ANTOINE was the Chat Noir's first major shadow theatre production, premiering on the 28th of December, 1887, and over time became one of its three most-popular billings. "Protocinematic" (per later analysts), the Chat Noir productions were viewed by thousands upon thousands of people, from all walks of like (over the years, everyone came: Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Pissarro, Monet, Casset, and the rest). This commemorative album is, well: Stunning. All we can say.

[vi], [v]-vii, 686 (i.e. 742) pp. Octavo (9" x 6"). Recent period-style quarter cloth over marbled boards, gilt title to spine endpapers renewed, tears to final index leaf repaired. Moderate toning and foxing, light soiling to title page and verso of final index leaf. Early owner stamps to title page and a few text leaves, underlining in a few places, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition. This study that called for the abolition of slavery was a controversial book when it was published. Its argument is grounded in legal and, to some extent, theological sources. Slavery was abolished when the Second Empire fell in 1888. This is an important date in the history of human rights because Brazil was the last nation in the Western Hemisphere to abolish slavery.

"Entomology has reason for gratitude to him for much useful spadework, and, to all who study British Beetles, his principal achievement, the 'Coleoptera of the British Islands', is the indispensable starting-point for any fresh advance, and is not likely soon to be superseded" (G.L. Arrow. Ent., 722, July 1923, p. 170). The work was published in 5 volumes and together with H. Donisthorpe a supplementary volume was published in 1913.//Nissen ZBI, 1415.
