        A. D. 2000

      Chicago: Laird & Lee Publishers, 1890.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-415 [416: ad] [note: first leaf is a half title leaf], fifteen inserted plates with illustrations by W. Bretsnyder, original decorated navy blue bevel-edged cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, headbands, no flyleaves, brown coated endpapers. First edition. Published in paper wrappers as Laird & Lee's "Library of Choice Fiction," number 8 at 50¢, and in cloth (as here) at $1. There were two hardbound issues (printings?) of this book (priority unknown) with title pages dated 1890 (later reprints have no dates printed on the title page), one variant with page [416] blank and no half title leaf, the other with an advertisement for Gautier's Mademoiselle de Maupin on page [416] and a half title leaf; this being the variant with the half title leaf and with the advertisement on page [416]. An interesting novel, with many elements of super science, set in the United States of 2000 A. D. The technological climax of the book is the conquest of the North Pole. Many parallels to Bellamy's LOOKING BACKWARD, but particularly sketchy with regard to economics. In his preface Fuller comments that "lest originality of title and theme be denied, it is but justice to myself to state that both were assumed in November, 1887." For a lengthy discussion of this novel see Ben Fuson, "Three Kansas Utopian Novels of 1890," Extrapolation, 12 (December 1970), 7-24. Also see Clareson, The Emergence of American Science Fiction: 1880-1915, pp. 290-92 who notes that this book "introduces [the natural disaster motif] into American science fiction ..." Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-78 and (1981) 1-76. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 821. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 315. Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 68.

        Mährchenspiel Schneewittchen

      Mainz: Jos. Scholz, 1890. Cöster, Mathilde. Four stand-up scenes with forty-five die-cut paper figures, which can be used to stage the fairy tale of Snow White. The pieces include thirteen two-sided figures for our major players, including Snow White, the Seven Dwarves, Prince Charming, and the Evil Queen; six additional one-sided figures for minor characters; five hats and hairpieces; three costumes; and eighteen smaller animals and objects. Each of the four scenes is crafted from multiple layers of paper, which create convenient slots for positioning characters. The scenes can be propped up using the ribbon-reinforced easel stand on the back. A single-page sheet suggests twelve example scenes; for easy legibility, the die-cut pieces are printed in red and the background in black. A four-page text insert offers an introduction and written instructions. Housed in a box with a pictorial chromolithographed label to the top and gilt edge decorations. Inside the bottom of the box is what looks like a pair of wooden doors made of paper that are hinged and open to reveal a space for storing the figures when they are not in use. The inside cover of the box is stamped with the logo of Vetter's Magazin für Jugend-Beschäftigungen. Expected wear to box, some gilt trim loss, prop on the back of one scene loose, else a fine set.

        THE WITCH'S CAVERN. A REALISTIC AND THRILLING PICTURE OF LONDON SOCIETY. By "One Who Knows" [pseudonym]

      New York: The Minerva Publishing Company, 48 University Place, 1890.. Octavo, pp. [3-4] 5-336 [337-338] [note: text complete despite gap in pagination], original pictorial light gray-green cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in black and silver. First U.S. edition. The UK edition was published the same year in London by Trischler & Company as THE DECLINE AND FALL OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE; OR, THE WITCH'S CAVERN by "Anonymous." To date, no copies of the UK edition, other than those with "second thousand" printed on the title page, have been located. While the UK edition is fairly common (COPAC records 2; OCLC lists 11), this U.S. edition rare (no copies recorded by COPAC or OCLC). This Minerva edition was probably published in paper as well as in cloth, but this is not certain; the book is not listed in THE AMERICAN CATALOGUE. According to John Clute, Watson's novel is "a surprisingly adventurous and invention-filled speculation set in the far future" (Clute and Nicholls [eds], The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction [1993], p. 777). "Science fiction novel in which a student of a scientifically advanced Australia of 2990 undertakes an expedition to barbaric England and, while there, finds himself transported back to a time when England was still a going concern." - Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 18 (recording a UK copy marked "second thousand;" see his note).

        Problems of Greater Britain.

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1890. 2 volumes, octavo (215 x 138 mm). Contemporary green crushed half morocco by Birdsall, flat bands to spines, compartments lettered and decorated in gilt, green cloth sides, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. 5 folding colour maps. Spine-ends lightly rubbed, tips bumped and worn, small nick to fore edge of vol. 2 front board, mild spotting to edges, prelims and endleaves, these flaws minor: a very good copy. First edition, an interesting association copy, with the engraved bookplate of Pandeli Ralli (1845-1928), Liberal member of parliament (for Bridport, 1875-80, then Wallingford until 1885), member of the famous Greek merchant family, and longtime confidant of Lord Kitchener, to the front pastedowns. Dilke's essay on imperial defence, which predicted the threat to an increasingly overstretched British Empire posed by the growing military strength of the European powers; the title echoes that of his most popular work, Greater Britain, an account of a year-long tour of the colonies undertaken as a young man, and an influential apology for empire. In 1904, as Liberal member of parliament for the Forest of Dean, he founded the committee of imperial defence.

        Cabinet card photograph of a Ute tribal policeman

      Winfield, Kansas, 1890. Very good. Photograph measures approximately 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"; card is 4 1/4" x 6 1/2". The image shows a very well-dressed Native American policeman wearing his U.S. Indian Police (USPI) badge on a vest accented with fur pelts. The vest is worn over a striped trade shirt. He is also wearing beaded pants and moccasins as well as a jeweled ring and what appear to be silver armbands. The image has been captioned in the negative, "Dick U.S. Police" and a pencil annotation on the reverse of the card reads, "He was a police with the Ute tribe." Nice image. Minor soiling. After the use of Indians to police the reservations was first tried with success by John Clum, agent of the Apaches on the San Carlos Reservation, Commissioner of Indian Affairs Ezra A. Hayt recommended the general adoption of an Indian police force in his annual report of 1877. Congress approved and authorized the hiring of 480 Native American police officers in 1878 and upped the total to 900 in 1879. (See Prucha's Documents on United States Indian Policy and U.S. Statutes at Large, 20:86, 315.) Some have suggested that many USIP officers were given Deputy U.S. Marshal commissions that allowed them to cross jurisdictional boundaries and also to arrest non-Indians. David Rodocker first opened a studio in Winfield, Kansas in 1871 and traveled throughout the west taking photos in 1877, 1880, and from 1887 to 1894. Very scarce; as of 2017, only three other images of a Native American policeman are found in auction records. One of those images was identical to this one and it identified the policeman as "Dick Wass" of the "Unitah & Ouray Utah Indian Police.".

Bel exemplaire. Un des plus beaux livres de Gustave Doré. Dans cet ouvrage, Gustave Doré a déployé un pittoresque et une verve graphique où rejaillit tout le délire bon vivant du curé de Meudon. Mêlant le fantastique au réalisme, l’épique au grotesque, ponctuant les paysages de vieux châteaux, les cités de mâchicoulis, de tourelles et de poternes, l’imagination de l’artiste est à l’unisson des outrances, de la gaieté démesurée, de la caricature outrancière de l’auteur. in-4° [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        IDUNA. Zeitschrift für Dichtung und Kritik. Hgg. von der Freien deutschen Gesellschaft für Literatur in Wien. Hefte 1-7, 1. u. 2. Jahrgang 1892/93.

      Gr.-8. Zus. 144 S.(Fortlaufende Paginierung). OBrosch. m. schwarzgedr. Tit. Einbde. rissig, tlw. fleckig u. gebräunt, im Seitensteg etw. angeschmutzt, 3 Einbandeckel tlw. od. ganz abgelöst, Vorderdeckel v. Hft.1 wasserfl., im Text papierbed. tlw. gebräunt. Vgl. Dietzel/Hügel II Weiermair Helmut, Lit. Zeitschr. Österreichs v. 1890-1900. Organ der gleichnamigen Vereinigung konservativer katholischer Wiener Schriftsteller. Iduna bestand zwischen 1891 und 1904 und wurde von dem österreichischen Dichter Johann Fercher von Steinwand (eig. Johann Kleinfercher, 1828-1902) als Kontrapunkt gegen Naturalismus und Jung-Wien ins Leben gerufen. Der Iduna gehörten unter anderem R. von Kralik, M. delle Grazie und R. Steiner an. Als 1896 der Schriftsteller Richard Kralik zusammen mit einigen Getreuen die Iduna verließ um sich dem Verband katholischer Schriftsteller und Schriftstellerinnen Österreichs anzuschließen, war dies eigentlich schon der Anfang vom Ende dieses Bundes. Als 1904 eine weitere Gruppe die Iduna verließ um sich der Wiener Schriftsteller-Genossenschaft anzuschließen, wurde die Iduna aufgelöst. - Sehr seltene, da nur für die Mitglieder der Gesellschaft Iduna hergestellte Vereinszeitschrift und daher kaum nachzuweisen. Uns vorliegende Hefte sind vermutlich alles erschienene. "Nrn.1-6 erschienen ab 1. März 1892, Nr.7 1893 dann wurde das Blatt stillschweigend eingestellt" (vgl. dazu Weiermair S.2). Bei Dietzel/Hügel ist vermerkt "Nicht zu erlangen, 1891-93 nachgewiesen". Geleitet von dem österreichischen Schriftsteller, Journalisten und engstem Jugendfreund Rudolf Steiners in Wien Fritz Lemmermayer (1857-1932) der ein führendes Mitglied der Schriftstellervereinigung war. Mit Beiträgen von Fercher v. Steinwand, Fritz Lemmermayer, Richard Kralik, Adolf Pichler, delle Grazie, Robert Plöhn, Hans Fraungruber, Guido List u.a.

The authorized text was published the following year by Reeves & Turner with added material. "First published in the COMMONWEAL in 1890 as a direct response to Bellamy's LOOKING BACKWARD (1888), Morris's dream-vision calls up his beloved 14th century. Squalor, poverty, and all signs of urban industrialization have vanished. Neither politics nor family tyranny constrains humankind. All do as they please in their own manner and have as a reward a sense of creation and service." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 1-69. "... NEWS FROM NOWHERE is not, as has so often been said, a turning back to an earlier kind of civilization, but rather a look forward to what might be when men once more assert better control over the things they have themselves created -- whether it be society itself or the machines which are so much a part of that society." - Lewis, Utopian Literature, pp. 134-36.

      Leipzig: B. G. Teubner, 1890. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 1890-1892. 8vo (242 x 161 mm). xix [1], 764; xv [1], 712 pp. Several diagrams in text. Contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled boards (extremities rubbed), gilt-lettered spine, sprinkled edges. Paper little age-toned, occasional minor spotting, slight foxing to titl-pages. Still very good, unmarked copy. ----DSB VII, p.398. FIRST EDITION of this important work on elliptic function theory by the well known German mathematician. Felix Klein (1849-1925) is best known for his work in non-euclidean geometry, for his work on the connections between geometry and group theory, and for results in function theory. He considered equations of degree greater than four and was particularly interested in using transcendental methods to solve the general equation of the fifth degree. After building on methods due to Hermite and Kronecker he went on to completely solve the problem using the group of the icosahedron. This work led him to consider elliptic modular functions which he studied and presented in a series of basic papers. In collaboration with Robert Fricke he finally presented the complete theory in the present extensive work that is still indispensable for research (DSB). Very Good.

Travelers in the Colorado Rockies come across a strange device that allows communication from Saturn, a world whose society and technology are much advanced over those of the earth. "A miraculous invention establishes communication with a Saturnian who describes the history of his nation, which mirrors America until a religious hero appears and proves the 'transmigration' of all experience. The population is reformed, and progress is interrupted only by a war between robots and man: a fearful result of over dependence on technology." - Roemer, The Obsolete Necessity, p. 188. "Eccentric novel with elements of social theory, cosmology, and pneumatology ... Imaginative, with many odd and interesting ideas, but without the literary skill or mental discipline to develop them properly." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 445.

Souvenir-Album von Konstantinopel für den sich seinerzeit etablierenden Orient-Tourismus mit 30 photographischen Aufnahmen aus dem bedeutenden Fotostudio Sébah & Joailler. Das Fotostudio wurde 1857 in Istanbul von Pascal Sébah (1823-1886), einem der führenden Photographen im osmanischen Reich, gegründet. Nach dem Tod des Gründers wurde der französische Photograf Policarpe Joaillier (1848-1904) 1884/85 zum Partner und führte das Unternehmen schließlich unter dem Namen Sébah-Joaillier weiter. Stilistisch fotografierte er in der Tradition des Ateliergründers weiter und es entstand eine groß angelegte Serie von Landschafts- und Monumentalfotografien von Instanbul. Die Firma erhielt das Recht, den Titel Photographen des Sultans zu tragen. Die Fotografien wurden unter anderem zur Illustration von wissenschaftlichen Werken über den Orient verwendet. 1890 übernahm der nun 18-jährige Sohn des Gründers, Jean-Pascal Sébah, das Geschäft. Die lange und komplexe Firmengeschichte macht es schwierig, die Urheberschaft der einzelnen Aufnahmen eindeutig nachzuvollziehen. Hinweise geben die Signaturen: Jean Pascal Sébah hatte die Signatur seines Vaters P. Sebah um seine Initialen auf J. P. Sebah erweitert, Joaillier wiederum signierte mit Sebah & Joaillier. Bei unserem Album sind 15 Aufnahmen mit 'Sebah & Joaillier' u. nur eine Aufnahme m. 'P. Sébah' gezeichnet, die übrigen sind nicht signiert. - Die Aufnahmen zeigen Typen, Straßenszenen und Bauwerke. - DIESES OBJEKT UNTERLIEGT DER DIFFERENZBESTEUERUNG.
