        L'inutile beauté EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Paris: Victor-Havard, 1890. Fine. Victor-Havard, Paris 1890, 12x19cm, relié. - Original edition on the current paper. Binding bronze half calf, smooth back, guards and contreplats of handmade paper, preserved cover, elegant binding pastiche signed P. Goy & C. Vilaine. Signed autograph of the author Bookseller Achilles Heymann. This bookseller was "one of the most picturesque types of Paris. (...) All birds (...), students, sometimes even literate, came to consult this man who knew all of the library, the book he was reading or at least bought. " (G. Baume In the land of letters, 1922). Maupassant did was not wrong, as he says in the letter to Henry Kistemaeckers of 7 May 1882 "I answer for sale at the Bookstore New You will see the 3 employees are called Achilles Heymann, Ménard and.. Reboul (...) It is essential (...) to provide a copy to each (...). - I'll go to the library to write a word for each of them - in this one house has sold 900 copies of La Maison Tellier.

Reliure en demi veau bronze, dos lisse, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, couverture conservée, élégante reliure pastiche signée de P. Goy & C. Vilaine. Envoi autographe signé de Guy de Maupassant au libraire Achille Heymann. Ce libraire était "un des types les plus pittoresques de Paris. (...) Toutes les perruches (...), des étudiants, quelquefois même des lettrés, venaient consulter cet homme qui savait tout de la librairie, sur le livre qu'il fallait avoir lu ou du moins acheté." (G. Baume Au pays des lettres, 1922). Maupassant ne s'y était pas trompé, comme il l'indique dans cette lettre à Henry Kistemaeckers du 7 mai 1882: "Je réponds de la vente à la Librairie Nouvelle. Vous verrez. Les 3 employés s'appellent Achille Heymann, Ménard et Reboul. (...) Il est indispensable (...) d'offrir un exemplaire à chacun (...) - Je passerai à la librairie écrire un mot pour chacun d'eux - Dans cette seule maison on a vendu 900 exemplaires de La Maison Tellier. Aucun journal ne vaut ces trois employés comme publicité."

        Les chants de Maldoror Grand papier

      Paris: Genonceaux, 1890. Fine. Genonceaux, Paris 1890, Pet. in 8 (10,8x16,6cm), relié. - Rare second edition in trade, and the first French edition, one of 150 unnumbered copies on vellum, one draw with 10 japan. First edition of the famous preface Genonceaux on Lautréamont, frontispiece Jose Roy (regular cartoonist licentious works) showing a flayed skin to earth, wandering in the catacombs, a facsimile of a letter from the author 1870 . Bound in half blue calico, smooth back with a gold finial, date tail piece red morocco emphasized double nets, blue marbled paper on the boards, elegant binding pastiche signed Laurenchet. The original 1869 was never published by Lacroix, who had pledged to edit; only ten copies were stapled and delivered to the author. In 1874 another Belgian publisher, Rozez, resumed the background and edited with a title page relays. The title glory Genonceaux was without doubt have edited the Chants de Maldoror, with a real desire to make it known. After editing, he published several excerpts in newspapers: Fin de siècle (14 February 1891) and The Black Cat (12 December 1891). His preface is the result of a serious investigation, which is why it violently rejects allegations of Léon Bloy on the author. Genonceaux providing a charge of indecency, which actually took place in 1892, leaving his publishing house after editing Shrine of Rimbaud. Literature vertigo at the limit of sustainable, the excessive teenager, a total darkness, the Chants de Maldoror, or the saga of a wandering figure of evil in the world, became famous surrealist who made a true aesthetic manifesto. Few pale scattered spots on a very white paper, otherwise very good copy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Rare seconde édition dans le commerce, et première édition française, un des 150 exemplaires non numérotés sur vélin, seul tirage avec 10 japon. Edition originale de la fameuse préface de Genonceaux sur Lautréamont, frontispice de José Roy (dessinateur attitré des ouvrages licencieux) montrant un écorché, sa peau à terre, errant dans des catacombes, fac-similé d'une lettre de l'auteur datant de 1870. Reliure en demi percaline bleue, dos lisse orné d'un fleuron doré, date en queue, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge souligné de doubles filets, papier marbré bleu sur les plats, élégante reliure pastiche signée Laurenchet. L'originale de 1869 ne fut jamais publiée par Lacroix qui s'était pourtant engagé à l'éditer ; seule une dizaine d'exemplaires furent brochés et remis à l'auteur. En 1874 un autre éditeur belge, Rozez, repris le fond et l'édita avec une page de titre de relais. Le titre de gloire de Genonceaux fut sans nulle doute d'avoir édité les Chants de Maldoror, avec un réel souci de le faire connaître. A l'issue de l'édition, il publia plusieurs extraits dans des journeaux : Fin de siècle (14 février 1891) et Le Chat noir (12 décembre 1891). Sa préface est le fruit d'une investigation sérieuse, c'est pourquoi il rejette violemment les allégations de Léon Bloy sur l'auteur. Genonceaux prévoyant une accusation pour outrage aux bonnes moeurs, qui eut lieu effectivement en 1892, quitte sa maison d'édition après avoir édité le Reliquaire de Rimbaud. Littérature du vertige à la limite du soutenable, de l'outrance adolescente, d'une noirceur totale, les Chants de Maldoror, ou l'épopée d'une figure du mal errant dans le monde, devint célèbre grâce aux surréalistes qui en firent un véritable manifeste esthétique. Rares et pâles rousseurs éparses sur un papier bien blanc, sinon très bel exemplaire.

        In Darkest Africa

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington Limited,, 1890. or the Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria. 2 volumes, demy quarto. Original dark brown half morocco, japon on bevelled boards with the title, flag of Emin Pasha and Stanley's signature to the upper boards gilt, gilt lettered spines, top edges gilt, others uncut, dark brown silk page-markers still intact, and in place. Titles printed in red and black, photogravure portrait frontispiece of Stanley on India paper mounted (printed by Lemercier from a photograph by Walery), similar Lemercier-printed frontispiece to volume II, and 44 plates, 6 of them etchings printed in sepia, signed in pencil by G. Montbard, the rest printed on India paper and mounted, 4 maps, 3 of them folding, the 2 large area maps linen-backed, 1 folding printed table, and 103 illustrations in the text, 3 of them full-page. Spines rubbed, scratch across numbering panel of volume I, sides stained, volume I with stain in the gutter at head of a number of leaves and splash marks across rear endpapers, First edition, edition de luxe, number 199 of 250 copies signed by Stanley. Stanley's famous account of his expedition to relieve Emin Pasha (Eduard Schnitzer), the beleaguered governor of equatorial Sudan, contains some of his most celebrated writing, especially his account of the tortuous 450-mile passage through the dense Ituri rain forest. Stanley's dealings with Emin Pasha, who proved singularly resistant to being "rescued", his abandonment of his own rear column and his wider motives for his mission have all come under suspicion then and since, but the book remains a classic of African exploration. In the course of the journey Stanley met Roger Casement, then in service on the Congo, discovered the great snow-capped range of Ruwenzori, the Mountains of the Moon, a new lake which he named the Albert Edward Nyanza and a large south-western extension of Lake Victoria. Translations of In Darkest Africa appeared quickly in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Dutch while sales of the English trade editions reached 150,000 copies. This lavishly produced edition de luxe is certainly one of the grandest publications devoted to African exploration of the entire 19th century.

        ORIGINAL ART.

      - (HUMPHREY,MAUD) ORIGINAL ART: ROSA. This is a magnificent original watercolor by Maud Humphrey published by Prang for their line of greeting cards featuring idealized children and flowers. The image measures 9 5/8 x 11 1/4" high, and nicely matted. Depicted is a lovely little girl in a blue dress wearing a fancy hat. She is holding a flower in a cup. Surrounding her is an elaborate array of roses and foliage. Signed by Humphrey, circa 1890. This is a fine example of Humphrey at her best and an absolutely beautiful portrait. Humphrey was one of the first great American women illustrators paving the way for Jessie Willcox Smith, Grace Drayton and the many other women illustrators of the early 20th century. Humphrey is also known for being HUMPHREY BOGART'S MOTHER (and in fact she used her son as a model for many of her pictures). See The Chromolithographs of Louis Prang p.52 where the picture is reproduced in black and white. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

The Sierra Buttles Mine operated from the time of the California Gold Rush until 1912. Gold-bearing quartz ledges were discovered in 1850, and first developed by the Reis brothers of San Francisco. By 1866 two mills were processing the ore produced from three ledges. An English syndicate purchased the mine by 1870, and by 1882 the mine had produced over 7 million dolllars of gold. In 1904 E. A and J. O. Hayes bought the operation and built a cyanide plant to enhance gold recovery. By 1907 profitability was questionable, and in 1912 what was once the major gold producer in the area was shut down. Today no sign of the mine's facilities remain. Examples of suppliers from receipts include Golden Gate Woolen Manufacturing Co. , Downieville Foundry and Machine Shop, California Perforated Screen Company, and Joel Champion--Dealer in Goods, Boots and Shoes, Hats, Caps, Furnishing Goods In Late Styles aned Low Prices. Receipt dates are from 1890-1896. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Signed photograph ("Stephen Crane"). Cabinet card

      Ca. 1890. A fine early portrait of Crane in his military school uniform, by W. H. Stauffer of Asbury Park, N.J., inscribed to a schoolmate. Inscribed on the reverse to Odell Hathaway, his classmate at Claverack College "To Odell with kindest regards / Stephen Crane / Syracuse, N.Y., January 12, 1897". 6½ x 4 1/8, scalloped and gilt edges, photographer's advertisement on verso, lower left corner slightly bent, otherwise very good, strongly toned. From 1888 to 1890 Crane attended Claverack College and Hudson River Institute in the Catskills, a military preparatory school where he was taught by retired General John B. Van Petten, whose reminiscences became the basis for The Red Badge of Courage. The inscription on the photograph was written only a week after Crane's rescue from the wreck of his boat, The Commodore, while he was attempting to smuggle contraband to Cuban rebels, an event that inspired his The Open Boat. Wertheim and Sorrentino's edition of "The Correspondence of Stephen Crane" (Columbia University Press, 1988) records only five signed images of Crane, all but one in institutional collections, making this the sixth known example, and the only one still in private hands.

        An attractive print of Alexander Gardner's portrait of Lincoln, Alan Pinkerton and General John A. McClernand at Antietam, October 3, 1862

      Hartford, Connecticut, c. 1890. 11" x 8.75". "Mounted albumen photograph, 8.75"" x 6.5"" on a 11"" x 8.75"" mount, taken by Alexander Gardner. Titled on mount: ""President Lincoln, Major Allen Pinkerton and Gen. McClernard [sic], Antietam, October 1862"" Published by Taylor & Huntington, Hartford, Connecticut, c. 1890, part of the ""War for the Union. Photographic History, 1861-1865"" series. Very light scattered foxing (mostly to mount), minor edge wear to mount with pinholes at top corners, mounting remnants on verso, else fine condition. The printed caption below the title reads in full: ""The central figure in this scene is, of course, President Lincoln. Comparatively few of this generation have any clear idea how Mr. Lincoln really looked. This view is a valuable and rare picture; it was photographed at headquarters Army of the Potomac, Antietam, Md., October 3, 1862. The officer in uniform is Gen. MClernard [sic], an the short rather insignificant looking man on the other side of President Lincoln is Alan Pinkerton, the chief of secret service, Army of the Potomac, and the father of the now famous Pinkerton Detectives. In the army he was known only as 'Major Allen.'"" The verso bears a printed catalog listing all of the images available from the series. In the photograph, Lincoln moves his head during the pose, and the detective, E.J. Allen, alias for Allan Pinkerton, exhibits a Napoleonic stance with his right hand thrust in his coat. Pinkerton (1819-1884) was head of the Union Intelligence Service between 1861 and 1862 and foiled an alleged assassination plot against Lincoln while guarding him on his way to his inauguration in Baltimore. Note the plate number ""7949"" has cleverly etched into the newspaper held by Gardner's assistant (seated on the ground at the extreme left.) (Ostendorf O-64)"
