        The Wanderings of Oisin and Other Poems.

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Co., 1889 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt, black coated endpapers. In a blue quarter morocco slipcase. Short tear to fore edge of the front free endpaper, corners bumped but an excellent copy. First edition, a major literary association copy with Yeats's contemporary presentation inscription to the first blank leaf, "To the poet of the North Countrie Joseph Skipsey with the author's kind regards". Yeats has made minor corrections to the text on four pages. The recipient was a remarkable figure in the literary world of the late 19th-century. The son of a Northumberland miner, Joseph Skipsey resisted following his family down the pits. Instead he studied alone and took to writing. He established himself as the poetical voice his community and gained national recognition as a poet and critic. After holding a number of unrewarding positions of the periphery of educational institutions he moved in 1889 to Stratford-upon-Avon where he and his wife were appointed joint custodians of Shakespeare's Birthplace. However after less than two years he became disenchanted with the job which (he confided in a letter not to be opened until after his death) involved dealing with relics which had "no definite history" and having to "perpetuate error and fraud" on the visitors and general public. Presentation copies of this landmark Yeats title are of the utmost scarcity, the present example being the only one with a literary association to appear on the market in 35 years.

        SMS Alexandrine - South Pacific Voyages Patrolling German New Guinea

      Central and South Pacific: German New Guinea, Samoa Islands, Marshall Islands, Fiji, Australia, 2 April 1889 - 15 September 1891. Manuscript journal of Th. Krüger, a petty officer and gunsmith who served with the Kaiserliche Marine (German Imperial Navy) onboard SMS Alexandrine, detailing observations in the German South Seas colonies, and also in Chile. 8vo. 135 pages in manuscript including title page, list of officers onboard, the ship's equipment and history, paginated to 137 with two integral blanks following these introductory features. Text is in German. Black cloth over brown paper boards, manuscript title label to front. A detailed naval account. It is exceedingly scarce to find period manuscript works of any kind pertaining to German colonial presence in the South Pacific. SMS Alexandrine was a member of the Carola class of steam corvettes built for the German Kaiserliche Marine (Imperial Navy). Designed for service in the German colonial empire, she was equipped with a combination of steam and sail power for extended range, and a battery guns for defense. Alexandrine was first commissioned in 1889 for a voyage to Samoa in the Central Pacific, where competing claims to the islands of Samoa created tension between several colonial powers, this taking place during the First Samoan Civil War. The ship patrolled Deutsch-Neuguinea, Germany's colonial holdings in the Central Pacific, until 1891. She subsequently joined the German Cruiser Squadron, which was sent to Chile to protect German nationals during the Chilean Civil War of 1891. For two and a half years, the writer plied Pacific waters for German colonial gain, all the while Great Britain and the United States of America having their sights on some of the same islands, and in Samoa a civil war was disrupting commerce and the safety of foreigners. The First Samoan Civil War, enduring roughly between 1886 and 1894, was a conflict between rival Samoan factions in the Samoan Islands. The war was fought primarily between Samoans fighting over whether Malietoa Laupepa or Mata'afa Iosefo would be King of Samoa. The German military intervened on several occasions. There was also a naval standoff between U.S., Germany, and UK. After the 1889 Apia cyclone destroyed six of the German and American ships stationed at Samoa, the three countries decided that Laupepa would be the King. The present volume offers primary source observations and descriptions of islands seldom described or even mentioned in contemporary accounts, including remarks on the indigenous settlements, as the writer and his fellow officers patrolled South Pacific islands, in particular the innumerable islands which formed Deutsch-Neuguinea, to protect and to further aggrandize Germany's colonial and commercial empire. Providing further imagery of life at sea during such a commission, the volume begins with an uncommon introduction of peripheral detail, comprising a history of the vessel and its then current equipment, followed by succinct biographical sketch of each individual crew member, including names. Cannibals, heavily tattooed barely-clothed islanders, simple thatched huts of slightly varied construction dotting the jungles, quite likely never before seen by the writer, these and other customs piqued his interest and make for interesting nineteenth century accounts. The marine officer describes bartering with alleged cannibals and at least one skirmish with the natives. In one instance two islands are placed under German protection and the "Negerkönig" ["negro king"] was presented with gifts such as a crate of bread and a ton of salt meat. He also notes the stunning flora and fauna, including the colourful parrots and cockatoos. Following are a few examples of places discussed by officer Krüger which are scarcely mentioned in other contemporary accounts: On 5 August 1889, in his commentary, the writer highlights "Bougainville Island" which surely was of colonial interest at the time of Krüger's voyage, as Germany would lay claim to ten years later in 1899, annexing it into German New Guinea. An entry dated 14 March 1890 highlights "Opal" possibly referring to the small Samoan island of Upolu where in 1900 the Vailima Estate was purchased as the official residence for German governors. Upolu was also the site of several German plantations, which in 1888 were the target of much looting by protesting natives led by Samoan chief Mata'afa Iosefo. Shortly after this, we find entries pertaining to "Tamana Island," the smallest of the Gilbert Islands in Kiribati, which lay about halfway between Papua New Guinea and Hawaii. "Jaluit" is discussed, the large coral atoll of ninety-one islands having become a German protectorate on 13 September 1886, and having had several imperial commissars, Herr Eugen Brandeis holding the post at the time of Krüger's voyage. In 1884 the Germans had established a trading outpost. An entry in May 1890 discusses "Kabua the Great," the iroijlaplap, or paramount chief, of the Ralik Chain of the Marshall Islands. Reputed by German traders for his leadership and bravery, Iroijlaplap Kabua, or Kabua: King of Jaluit, as he was also known, was often eulogized by the German officials for his support of German trade and as an adherent of the German ways. He died in 1910. "Matupi" in Neu-Pommern appears a few times in the text. From 1884 to 1899 Matupi was part of the protected area of the New Guinea Company, serving as the hub for sea traffic in the Bismarck archipelago. Colonization of this island region began here. From 1899 to 1914 it was part of German New Guinea. Matupi island is part of the Bismarck Archipelago of what is today Papua New Guinea. "Saluafata," either efering to Saoluafata Harbour, or the colonial village; and "Pago-Pago" now capital of Samoa. During heightened conflicts over colonial interests in the island of Samao, in November 1888, the flags of Great Britain, Germany, and America, all stood planted on the beach of Saluafata to lay claim on the coveted island. Krüger and his fellow officers, onboard SMS Alexandrine, were promptly despatched to Samoa after a major cyclone struck the islands on 16 March 1889 and destroyed two German warships in Apia, the gunboats Adler and Eber. Several German marines were killed by the storm. At the same time, conflicting claims over the islands were being made by other leading empires, which gave impetus to the German government's efforts to defend its interests there. Tasked with defending German interests in the South Pacific, SMS Alexandrine left Wilhelmshaven on 15 April 1889. She would be joined by her sister ship Sophie and the gunboat named Wolf. Kaiser Wilhelm II was onboard for the start of the voyage, disembarking at Wangerooge near Heligoland. Upon their arrival, they found Samoa to be in the throes of its First Civil War. Her first Port of call after crossing the Indian Ocean was Albany, in Western Australia, from where she cruised to Sydney, arriving there on 6 July. By this time, the situation in Samoa had calmed, so Alexandrine was sent on a tour of German protectorates in Melanesia, beginning on 24 July 1889. An entry on this date collaborates the new task as the officers make preparations. Stops included the North Solomon Islands, Bougainville Island, Matupi in Neu-Pommern, Finschhafen in Deutsch-Neuguinea, and the Hermit Islands. The voyage culminated with Kapsu island off Neu-Mecklenburg, where Alexandrine sent a landing party ashore to punish local residents who had murdered a pair of German citizens. From there, Alexandrine sailed to Sydney, where she remained for the month of November for repairs and to rest the crew. In March 1890, a steamer arrived in Auckland, New Zealand, with a new crew to relieve the men aboard Alexandrine, although the keeper of the present journal remained onboard. The ship then went to Apia, where she remained until early May, when she was sent on a tour of the Marshall Islands with the local Reichskommissar (Imperial Commissioner) on board. See the writer's fascinating account of Jaluit island and Chief Iroij Laplap Kabua. While en route, the crew stopped in the Gilbert Islands to settle disputes between Germans and locals. And in June 1890, the ship's crew participated in the ceremony installing Malietoa Laupepa as the ruler of Samoa. Entries for August 1890 describe the arrival at Sydney, and the crew receiving news that the ship had been assigned to the Cruiser Squadron under Konteradmiral (Rear Admiral) Victor Valois. The ship's departure from Australia is described, a voyage which made stops at Jervis Bay, Melbourne, Adelaide, Wellington in New Zealand's Cook Strait, Suva in Fiji, Tamana, and other islands, finally arriving at Apia on 16 September 1890. Here Alexandrine joined the other two corvettes of the squadron, the flagship SMS Leipzig, and again SMS Sophie. On 6 January 1891, the crew would make a final and extensive tour to several islands in the Samoa group. From the South Pacific to East Asia, ship and crew, together with the squadron, embarked on a voyage for a brief time to China and Japan. While in Shanghai in April 1891, Alexandrine exchanged crews another time; Krüger remained at his once more. In Yokohama, on 3 May Valois received the command to depart for Chile to support President José Manuel Balmaceda against uprisings during the Chilean Civil War of 1891, and to safeguard German nationals in the country. The squadron arrived off the coast of Chile on 9 July and Valois secured an agreement with the authorities in Valparaiso for landing parties from the vessels to secure the European quarter of the city. With remarks on the port cities of Caldera, Iquiqui, Krüger provides a briefing of events in Chile. In August 1891 Krüger reports that he was preparing for his voyage home to Germany, though his entries end with their arrival in the Cape Verde Islands. It is unknown what on what ship he embarked for his journey home, as Valois' cruiser squadron remained in Chile until the end of the war, departing only in December, when Krüger documents that he had already arrived at Cape Verde. The squadron transited the Strait of Magellan into the South Atlantic, stopped in Cape Town, where Rear Admiral Friedrich von Pawelsz took command of the squadron on 23 February 1892. The three corvettes steamed to German East Africa, where Sophie was detached; Alexandrine and Leipzig continued on with service in East Asia.

        Manuscript Journal of South Pacific Voyages, Detailing Observations in the German South Seas Colonies (German New Guinea, Samoa Islands, Marshall Islands, Fiji, Australia), and also in Chile.

      Central and South Pacific, 1889 - 1891. Central and South Pacific: German New Guinea, Samoa Islands, Marshall Islands, Fiji, Australia, 2 April 1889 - 15 September 1891. Manuscript journal of Th. Krüger, a petty officer and gunsmith who served with the Kaiserliche Marine (German Imperial Navy) onboard SMS Alexandrine, detailing observations in the German South Seas colonies, and also in Chile. 8vo. 135 pages in manuscript including title page, list of officers onboard, the ship's equipment and history, paginated to 137 with two integral blanks following these introductory features. Text is in German. Black cloth over brown paper boards, manuscript title label to front. Some wear to boards, otherwise in very good condition, a detailed naval account. It is exceedingly scarce to find period manuscript works of any kind pertaining to German colonial presence in the South Pacific. Alexandrine was first commissioned in 1889 for a voyage to Samoa in the Central Pacific, where competing claims to the islands of Samoa created tension between several colonial powers, this taking place during the First Samoan Civil War. The ship patrolled Deutsch-Neuguinea, Germany's colonial holdings in the Central Pacific, until 1891. She subsequently joined the German Cruiser Squadron, which was sent to Chile to protect German nationals during the Chilean Civil War of 1891. For two and a half years, the writer plied Pacific waters for German colonial gain, all the while Great Britain and the United States of America having their sights on some of the same islands, and in Samoa a civil war was disrupting commerce and the safety of foreigners. The present volume offers primary source observations and descriptions of islands seldom described or even mentioned in contemporary accounts, including remarks on the indigenous settlements, as the writer and his fellow officers patrolled South Pacific islands, in particular the innumerable islands which formed Deutsch-Neuguinea, to protect and to further aggrandize Germany's colonial and commercial empire. Cannibals, heavily tattooed barely-clothed islanders, simple thatched huts of slightly varied construction dotting the jungles, quite likely never before seen by the writer, these and other customs piqued his interest and make for interesting nineteenth century accounts. The marine officer describes bartering with alleged cannibals and at least one skirmish with the natives. In one instance two islands are placed under German protection and the "Negerkönig" ["negro king"] was presented with gifts such as a crate of bread and a ton of salt meat. He also notes the stunning flora and fauna, including the colourful parrots and cockatoos. ollowing are a few examples of places discussed by officer Krüger which are scarcely mentioned in other contemporary accounts: "Bougainville Island", "Opal" possibly referring to the small Samoan island of Upolu, "Tamana Island", "Jaluit", "Matupi" in Neu-Pommern, "Saluafata," either efering to Saoluafata Harbour, or the colonial village; and "Pago-Pago" now capital of Samoa. .

        Driving . [Volume 11 of The Badminton Library of Sports and Pastimes]

      Longmans, Green and Co, London 1889 - (9 3/8 x 7 1/8 inches). Numerous illustrations, after G.D. Giles and J. Sturgess. Extra-illustrated with 15 original drawings by Sturgess. Number 242 of 250 large paper copies. Contemporary red morocco by Rivere & Son, arms of the Dukes of Beaufort on both covers enclosed by a single fillet with stirrups and hunting horns at corners and with a motif of horse shoes in the outer panel, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second and third, the others with sporting motifs in each compartment, gilt inner dentelles, blue paper endpapers, top edges gilt, other uncut, within a cloth slipcase. Rare large paper copy, beautifully bound by Riviere and extra-illustrated with original drawings by Sturgess for illustrations within the book. Dedicated to the Prince of Wales, The Badminton Library of Sports and Pastimes, was a sporting and publishing project conceived and founded by Henry Somerset, 8th Duke of Beaufort (1824-1899). Between 1885 and 1896, it developed into a series of 28 separately published sporting books which aimed to cover comprehensively all the major sports and pastimes, with some additional volumes on new sports (including football and motoring) published subsequently. The work was issued in three forms: a standard trade edition bound in cloth, a deluxe edition identical to the trade edition but bound in half morocco, and the present large-paper deluxe edition limited to 250 numbered copies. Sturgess was a noted hunting and racing artist who worked mainly for the Illustrated London News between 1875 and 1885, and exhibited widely in the London galleries, including the Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Hibernian Society in Dublin. His lively original illustrations, however, are seldom encountered. A lovely, unique copy of a noted sporting book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

These five were Dorothy Carleton Smyth, Alice Shepherd, Miss J.D. Dunn, Muriel Taylor, and Agatha Gales. Most Vellucent bindings were designed by H. Granville Fell, but the woman most frequently employed for this kind of work was probably Dorothy Carleton Smyth" (Marianne Tidcombe, Women Bookbinders 1880-1920, p. 86).

      Perrin et Cie, Paris 1889 - In-12, 384 pp., demi-basane, dos à nerfs (dos un peu insolé). Exemplaire truffé en tête d'ouvrage du prospectus publicitaire sur papier jaune et d'une lettre autographe de deux pages in-12, datée de 1917, dans laquelle Charles Morice évoque plusieurs projets : une introduction à Baudelaire, un cours sur Verlaine à la Schola Cantorum grâce à Vincent d'Indy, projets dont on ne trouve pas trace et qu'il n'a sans doute pu mener à terme, Charles Morice étant décédé deux ans plus tard à Menton. Ediiton originale extrèmement rare. Charles Morice (1860-1919) fut poète et essayiste. Il participa entre autres à la revue Lutèce (anciennement La Nouvelle Rive Gauche) où il rencontra Verlaine, Mallarmé et Coppée, ainsi qu'au Salut Public (journal lyonnais). Il écrivit plusieurs articles sur Verlaine (sous le pseudonyme de Karl Mohr), d'abord critiques, puis louangeurs et contribua à sa reconnaissance.

        Bilder aus Mekka.

      Leiden, E. J. Brill, 1889. - Folio (282 x 372 mm). 20 collotype prints mounted on 18 sheets loose in red gilt cloth portfolio as issued, complete with the oft-lacking half-title, list of plates, title and preface. One of the earliest photographic documents of Mecca and the Hajj, preceded only by the photographs of Muhammed Sadiq Bey published in 1881 (Sotheby's, 4 June 1998: £1,250,000). Much rarer than the author's similarly titled "Bilder-Atlas zu Mekka", a portfolio of lithographs to accompany the "Mekka" books which Snouck had published after his return from the Arabian Peninsula. "Following the publication of 'Bilder-Atlas zu Mekka', Hurgronje received a letter from his doctor in Makkah, whom he had taught the art of photography. The letter contained new photographs of the hajj which were of such great interest that he decided in 1889 to publish his 'Bilder aus Mekka' [.] The photographs provide an insight into the world of Makkah's inhabitants, pilgrims from all over the Islamic world, in addition to the sharif of Makkah, the Turkish governor, and various religious and secular figures" (Badr el-Hage, p. 46f.). "In 1981 F. H. S. Allen and C. Gavin first identified the earliest Arabian photographer by deciphering his elaborately calligraphed signatures, which without exception had been erased from the plates reproduced by Snouck Hurgronje: 'Futugrafiyat al-Sayyid 'Abd al-Ghaffar, tabib Makka' (The Photography of the Sayyid Abd al-Ghaffar, physican of Mecca). This princely eye surgeon had been host to the young Snouck in Mecca immediately after the Dutchman's conversion to Islam. Snouck claimed to have taught his host how to use a camera and attributes to him (without ever mentioning his name) the pictures reproduced in 'Bilder aus Mekka'". - The first four leaves of letterpress material have been reinforced along the left edge. Prints and their mounts in excellent condition, crisp with very slight toning. Cloth portfolio a little faded; spine repaired, with 1914 De Belder bookplate on pastedown.

      Vienna: Verlag des Unterstützungs-Vereins der Wiener k. k. Finanzwache [Publishing Company of the Supporting Society of the Viennese Royal Customs Office] . Printed by Richard Thimm. 1889 - Small 8°, 73 pp., [1] blank page, original grey wrappers with printed title (Very Good, minor staining, wrappers slightly stained, with soft folds and tiny holes in the spine). A seemingly unrecorded book is a first-hand account on the opening of the Suez Canal, published at the occassion of the 20th anniversary of the Suez Canal, to raise funds for the Austrian Customs Office. - This is a seemingly unrecorded first-hand account on the opening of the Suez Canal, as written by a man, who accompanied the Emperor of Austria, Franz Joseph I, on a boat from the port of Pula, Croatia. The text gives details from the trip and the opening, as well as statistical data on the Suez Canal. The author published the book at the 20th anniverary of the Suez Canal in Vienna, to raise money for the Austrian Customs Office, who also published the book. The Suez Canal was completed in November 1869, after over a decade of labour, under the direction of the French businessman Ferdinand de Lesseps. The canal, which connected the Mediterranean (the Atlantic) with the Red Sea (Indian Ocean) had a revolutionary effect on global trade and travel, as it shaved thousands of kilometres off of the sailing time between Europe and South and East Asia. As shown here, coloured in a brilliant hue of burnt orange, the canal as originally built was 164 km (102 miles) in length and 8 metres (26 feet deep). Its northern terminus was Port Suez on the Mediterranean and its southern terminus was Port Said on the Red Sea’s Gulf of Suez. We could not find any other examples of the book in institutions nor on the market.
