        Confessions of a Young Man

      London: Swan Sonnenschein, Lowrey, & Co, 1888. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. First Edition. Author's presentation copy inscribed to his brother, "To Maurice Moore from George Moore." While Moore presentation copies are not hard to find, signicant ones inscribed at the time of publication rarely appear on the market. Tipped in at back is an autograph letter from Moore to editor and writer C. Lewis Hind. George Moore (1852-1933) was an Irish novelist, poet, critic, and dramatist who is often regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist. His younger brother Maurice (1854-1938) was also an author as well as a soldier and politician. He was a founding member of the Irish Free State. Maurice was the dedicatee of Esther Waters in 1894. Despite this, relations between the two brothers were troubled through most of their lives. The one page autograph letter to Hinds, dated June 18, 1900 is in regard to the possible reprinting of Esther Waters. He thanks Hind for his kind mention of the book and says that he read two "excellent artices in your paper." Bound in original cloth with pictorial illustration of a young woman on the cover. Spine somewhat darkened as usual, corners of book and spine bumped but still nice. Hinges tender but otherwise in very good condition. Tipped in is an advertisement for Moore's Parnell and His Island. Housed in a grey cloth chemise and quarter leather slipcase in very good condition. 357 pages. LIT/080315.

        Manuscript & Photo Archive - Greek Antiquity - Excavation Glass Lantern Slides & Documentation from His Personal Estate - All Text in German, Except One in French

      Greece, 1888. Troy - Tiryns - Mycenae - Epidaurus - Thermopylae - Athens - Olympia Greece, Italy, circa 1880 - 1955. Archive of glass slide photographs, documents and correspondence, pertaining to the work of leading German archaeologist Wilhelm Dörpfeld dedicated to Greek antiquity, featuring from his personal estate, 117 glass lantern slides of his excavations, some showing him at the ancient sites; a set of photographic negatives of Tiryns and of Dörpfeld; 4 printed works by Dörpfeld in original wrappers. Together with 3 accounts concerning Dörpfeld written by other authors, also in original wrappers; 1 printed bibliographical list of Dörpfeld's published works; 6 newspaper articles. Together with typescript draft copies of a posthumous bibliography by Peter Goessler, and 7 signed letters relating to the same, one of which is in manuscript, all of which are signed in the original. All text is in German, with one exception, a single offprint being in French. Printed documents range in size from 8vo. to Qto, news press articles being larger. Most glass slides measure approximately 8.5 x 10 cm; a few are slightly larger; several with manuscript captions. The lot housed in 11 labeled cardstock boxes, in original condition as kept and organised by Dörpfeld in his library. [A scant few slides are not in boxes]. Occasional annotations and folds to documents, one glas slide border tape loose, otherwise the lot in very good condition, clean and bright, a pleasing commemorative archive with especially scarce lantern slide views. Needing no introduction owing to his worldwide recognition and respect, though worthy of infinite accolades, Wilhelm Dörpfeld (1853-1940), a man of distinction celebrated then and still now, created his legacy by setting a standard of order, integrity and careful conservation in the field of archaeology. He also developed a stratigraphic method of dating ancient sites. He is most famous for his extensive work on Bronze Age sites around the Mediterranean, such as Tiryns and Hisarlik (the site of the legendary city of Troy), beginning excavation there with Heinrich Schliemann in 1882. Dörpfeld also excavated at Pergamon, Tiryns, the Acropolis and Agora of Athens. Highlights from the archive are as follows: Dörpfeld's personal collection of 117 glass lantern slides illustrating his dig sites, most significant research, travel and discoveries. Dörpfeld is seen in a few of the photographs. Well organized, the contents of the boxes are labeled in manuscript, and contain views of the following: • Greek Theatre • Ancient Sport and Sport theatres • Certosa. Naples-Pompeii-Capri-Syracuse • Messenion. Tiryns. Mycenae. Epidaurus. • Samos. Chanak-Troy • Athens (excluding acropolis) • Thermopylae. Athens: Acropolis • Aegina. Corinth. • Corfu and Venice • Olympia... Access to the Stadium, etc. • Crete (Knossos). Rhodes. 1934. Four (4) printed works published by Dörpfeld, each in original wrappers and dating from 1905 to 1938, including a treatise on Leucas, two unique accounts on ancient Troy, and a summary of his own work for the Greek Archaeological Society. Assorted publications about Dörpfeld dating between 1931 and 1952, including a bibliographical list of Dörpfeld's writings, a biography by Ernst Meyer (1888-1968), and press announcements regarding his important discoveries in the 1930s and his death in 1940. Several letters from 1943-34 dealing with a biography about Dörpfeld later published by Professor Peter Goessler, as well as a preliminary typescript by Goessler. [Peter Goessler (1872-1956) was a German pre-historian and conservationist of antiquities. From July 1902 to September 1903 he traveled to the eastern Mediterranean region and came to know Wilhelm Dörpfeld. Throughout the following three decades he assisted Dörpfeld with his work on the island of Lefkada, or Leukas, and, in 1951 he published a biography dedicated to Dörpfeld's accomplished career.] Peter Goessler war ein deutscher Prähistoriker und Denkmalpfleger im Land Württemberg. Vom Juli 1902 bis September 1903 bereiste er das östliche Mittelmeergebiet und lernte dabei Wilhelm Dörpfeld kennen; in den folgenden drei Jahrzehnten war Peter Goessler immer wieder als Mitarbeiter Dörpfelds auf Leukas tätig und widmete dem 1940 verstorbenen Freund 1951 eine Lebensbeschreibung..

Identified in ink on the verso: "Class of Girls in Laboratory Winter of 1888. English High School. Taken by J. Guild." Excellent portrait of 14 girls wearing protective smocks posed in a chemistry lab with rows of bottles and labeled test tubes behind them. Most, or perhaps all of them hold an assortment of chemical implements: mortar and pestle, chemical bottles, test tubes, beakers, and glass containers. A deep and rich and very unusual image, early images of woman in scientific settings are exceedingly uncommon. .

        RANCH LIFE AND THE HUNTING-TRAIL

      The Century Co, New York 1888 - Second issue in the brown cloth binding with gilt stamping and beveled boards, all page edges gilt. A solid Near Fine copy with only the most trivial wear at the spine ends and previous ownership markings on the front end paper. A Good only dust jacket with large chips from the spine ends (approx. 1.5 - 2" deep), a few tears at the flap folds (professionally closed), age toning as expected, but a complete and rather uncommon early dust jacket. The first major work illustrated by Frederick Remington, who up until that point had only sketched for magazines. Remington would go on to become one of the most prominent artists of the American West. The book is based on Roosevelt's experiences ranching in the Dakota Badlands during the cattle boom of the 1880s. The book documents his everyday routine, herding, hunting and working the ranch, as well as his extraordinary exploits such as the capture of three outlaws and guarding them for 40 straight hours without sleep, while transporting them to trial. A fantastic early account of western life by an American icon and one closely associated with the tough western lifestyle. Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition]
