        The Saga Library

      London: Bernard Quaritch,, 1891?-1905. Done into English out of the Icelandic. 6 volumes, octavo. Original dark green morocco-grained quarter calf, green cloth sides, titles and decorations to spines and front boards gilt, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. 14 folding genealogical charts, one large folding map in end-pocket of Volume I. Bookplate of Albert E. MacColl to front pastedowns. A couple of spines very gently sunned, slight spotting to edges, prelims and endmatter. An excellent set. First editions, first impressions, of the complete set of the Saga Library. The culmination of Morris's interest in the medieval literature of Iceland, the Saga Library was translated and edited by Morris together with his friend and scholar Eiríkr Magnússon (1833?-1913) and sought to make the material more accessible to an English-speaking public. Morris's passion for the sagas was strong enough to bring the untravelled author to Iceland, to travel by pony across rough often uninhabited terrain. "Morris travelled very little outside Britain. His two voyages to Iceland, in 1871 and 1873, must rank with his undergraduate tour of the Gothic cathedrals of France as the most influential journeys of his life" (ODNB).

        Autograph Letter Signed

      1891. Signed. TWAIN, Mark.Autograph Letter Signed.Arlington Hotel, Washington: January 16, 1891.Fine autograph letter signed by Twain, declining an invitation to participate in a public function. Attractively framed with a portrait of Twain.Twain's letter is addressed to Kate Foote, and reads: "Yours of day before yesterday has reached me from Hartford just as I am taking the train for home after my capitolian visit. I wish I could say yes—I would do it in a minute if the circumstances would allow it—but the recent deaths in our family circle forbid me to assist at any public function for the winter. I wish I had time to run around & have a glimpse of you, but train-time is too close at hand. Sincerely Yours, S.L. Clemens." At the time of this letter, Twain was anxiously awaiting word in Washington that a prospective investor, John Percival Jones, would exercise an option to create a parent company to produce and market Twain's infamous typesetting machine. By mid-February Jones pulled out of the deal, much to Twain's fury; it would not be until the end of 1894 that Twain would finally abandon the project, after losing a large part of his fortune in the endeavor. Fine condition.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Two pages on a halved-section of octavo-sized sheet (8" x 5") with original face of the cover envelope. December 31 [no date], but envelope post-marked 1891. To Mrs. Bryant, the wife of William J. Bryant, of which there are several letters from Christina on record to both William and his wife (esp. Bryn Mawr Special Collections, which has six), all regarding financial misfortunes. William Bryant served as literary secretary for Mackenzie Bell, biographer of Christina Rossetti. A fascinating letter, giving a clear picture of Christina's earnest in helping as well as her resolute and staunch commitment to offer sound advice without further enabling Mrs. Bryant toward failure. "Dear Mrs. Bryant, Your husband writes me a very painful letter. Pray do your very utmost to earn your won livelihood, which would seem not impossible as you have a trade. Or if work absolutely fails could you not try something different- charing or chasing for instance? or at the very worst, why not go into the House till the bitter winter is over? I feel some right to advise you because I have often helped you. Once more I enclose [underlined] 2/0 (P.S.), and I am sending you separately a balnket and one pair of flannel drawers..." She goes on to instruct Mrs. Bryant how to notify her when she has received everything. Signed with a postcript: "With every good wish, Sincererly yours, Christina G. Rossetti. My own health is causing anxiety just now. Do try to depend upon yourself whilst your Husband is amply cared for- it might seem less difficult." Three folds, very good. A scarce and fascinating look at the heart of Christina, along with her solidarity with women's rights, running against the discourse of the day.

        The White Company

      M J Ivers & C0., New York 1891 - Paper back book bound in dark and light blue and white, Ivers' American Series # 253. Cover states published on July 24th, 1891 and as such this copy predates the first English edition by three months. This copy with 334 pp and text of last page being identical to the first edition. Green and Gibson in their bibliography note this pirated edition and date but their comment on this date it on July 25, not the 24th as on the cover. Their hypothesis is that only the covers were dated as such to escape the new copyright laws. This copy with both covers chipped and the rear being detached. Pages are tanned but supple. Covers rather frail. An interesting dilemma, is this, a pirate, the true first? Could it be unique? [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A House of Pomegranates

      London: James R. Osgood, 1891. First edition. Very Good +. A Very Good+ copy of the book with all gilt bright and complete. Some toning and foxing to the boards, a few pages show minor separation within the text block, but a handsome copy withal. Complete with the four illustrated plates. One of a thousand copies of the first edition. A collection of fairy tales from the famed writer, wit, and aesthete. "A House of Pomegranates" includes stories of illegitimate princes, mermaids, and hunchback dwarfs. This was actually Wilde's second collection of fairy tales - he had been writing such stories for years -- after "The Happy Prince and Other Tales," published in 1888. A House of Pomegranates was met with some controversy, with many reviewers finding the stories too complex for children. But Wilde clearly had more wide-ranging ambitions, and found it absurd that 'the extremely limited vocabulary at the disposal of the British child [is] the standard by which the prose of an artist is to be judged...'in building this House of Pomegranates I had about as much intention of pleasing the British child as I had of pleasing the British public' "Mr. Wilde is in sympathy with the somber magnificence of old Spain...The make-up of the book is exceptionally good." (Contemporary Review, New York Times). Very Good +.

        NEW GRUB STREET

      1891 - A Novel. In Three Volumes. London: Smith, Elder, & Co., 1891. Original dark green cloth decorated in black. First Edition, which consisted of only 750 copies -- more than half of which were sold to the circulating libraries, where they were read to death.~NEW GRUB STREET is Gissing's most enduring and significant novel, both as literature and as a 'way in' to major cultural problems and the social forces which shaped them. For NEW GRUB STREET Gissing again drew on his own predicament, explanation enough of its unique strength. Its power seems to have come out of the bleak despair through which Gissing passed at the time. [S&C]~Gissing spent much of 1890 trying to get started on a new novel, but finally, once begun (and once he had met Edith Underwood, the second working-class woman he married, with equally disastrous results), he wrote an average of 4,000 words a day and completed it in about nine weeks. Smith Elder told Gissing they thought the novel "clever and original" but (as always) "too gloomy"; they offered him 150 pounds to buy the copyright outright, and Gissing (unfortunately) at once accepted.~This is a very good set, complete except for the absence of the single ad leaf at the end of Vol I. The volumes are somewhat rubbed at the extremities and there is faint evidence at the bottom of each front cover that a lending library label once resided there; internally, the endpapers appear to be original but they are too clean and intact to be such (especially for volumes that were once rented out). This set has gilt lettering on the spines and black lettering on the front covers; though Collie cites black lettering in both locations, all sets we have seen have conformed to this one. Collie A9b; Spiers & Coustillas M6; Sadleir 971; Wolff 2552. Provenance: with the penciled signatures of noted bibliographer Walter E. Smith. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        INDIENS PEAUX-ROUGES [caption title]

      Epinal, France: Pellerin & Cie., [1891].. Handcolored lithograph, 15 3/4 x 11 1/2 inches. Backed with another contemporary hand-colored sheet, tacked down to a later sheet of heavy paper. A few small tears at edges, repaired with tape, minor loss. Light soiling and toning. About good. Issued shortly after Wounded Knee, this French print depicts the Ghost Dance (Danse des Esprits), as well as the Sioux war dance, scalping, and representatives of the Crow, Cheyenne, Ute, Pawnee, Mandan, Comanche, and Apache tribes. The American West was very popular in Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and this print is indicative of ongoing French fascination with Native American culture.

By relating his equation of state with the Second Law of Thermodynamics, in the form first proposed by Willard Gibbs, he was able to arrive at a graphical representation of his mathematical formulations in the form of a surface which he called ? (Psi) surface following Gibbs, who used the Greek letter ? for the free energy of a system with different phases in equilibrium." (Wikipedia).

      Paris: Gil Blas, 1891. Fine. Gil Blas, Paris 1891-1892, 27x39cm, en feuilles. - First Edition pre-posthumous poem "First Evening" by Arthur Rimbaud, a variant of which was previously published under the title "Three Kisses" and pulled the manuscript of Book Douai, according to the wishes of the author, was never issued; only a few poems were published in facsimile. Gil Blas published this poem in the "Poets of love" of 23 from November 29, 1891, or twenty days after the disappearance of the poet. Number with a great illustration of Steinlen and a full page of Rabier. Gil Blas is a French weekly newspaper, founded by Auguste Dumont, which appeared November 19, 1879 to August 4, 1914, and very occasionally from 20 January 1921 to March 1940 for a contemporary from November 17, 1909 it was directed by Henri de Noussanne and Stone Maroussein. Gil Blas wanted first literary. Large feathers all speaking in chronicles that were very successful: Guy de Maupassant (or Maufrigneuse) whose collaboration was the longest (1881-1888), Paul Arena, Emile Bergerat, Clovis Hugues Rene Maizeroy Jean Richepin etc. Equally important were the soap operas, signed by Emile Zola, Hector Malot, Théodore de Banville, and Octave Mirbeau particular. For its part, Maupassant published "A Life" (February-April 1883), "Bel Ami" (April-May 1885), "Mont-Oriol" (December 1886-jévrier 1887), etc. In addition to these chronic and these serials, Zola defended some of his works in the newspaper, through the "Letters to the Editor" (on "Dream," Nov. 8, 1888, on "The Human Beast", November 13, 1889) .Bel copy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Le Gil Blas a publié ce poème dans la rubrique "Les poètes de l'amour" du n°23 du 29 novembre 1891, soit une vingtaine de jours seulement après la disparition du poète. Numéro comportant une grande illustration de Steinlen, ainsi qu'une à pleine page de Rabier. Gil Blas est un ancien hebdomadaire de presse écrite français, fondé par Auguste Dumont, qui a paru du 19 novembre 1879 au 4 août 1914, puis très épisodiquement du 20 janvier 1921 à mars 1940. Pendant une période, à partir du 17 novembre 1909, il fut dirigé par Henri de Noussanne et Pierre de Maroussein. Le Gil Blas se voulut d'abord littéraire. De grandes plumes s'y exprimèrent dans des chroniques qui connurent un vif succès : Guy de Maupassant (ou Maufrigneuse) dont la collaboration fut la plus longue (1881-1888), Paul Arène, Émile Bergerat, Clovis Hugues, René Maizeroy, Jean Richepin, etc. Tout aussi importants étaient les feuilletons, signés par Émile Zola, Hector Malot, Théodore de Banville, et Octave Mirbeau notamment. De son côté, Maupassant y publia « Une vie » (février-avril 1883), « Bel Ami » (avril-mai 1885), « Mont-Oriol » (décembre 1886-jévrier 1887), etc. Outre ces chroniques et ces feuilletons, Zola défendit certaines de ses œuvres dans le journal, par le biais des « Lettres au Directeur » (sur « le Rêve », 8 novembre 1888 ; sur « la Bête humaine », 13 novembre 1889).

        Traite du Quadrilatere. D'apres un manuscrit tire de la bibliotheque de S. A. Edhem Pacha. Traduit par Alexandres Pacha Caratheodry.

      Istanbul, Typographie et Lithographie Osmanie, 1891.. 1 Bl., 214 S. (französischer Text), 157 S. (arabischer Text) mit einigen Textabb. Gr.-8°. OHLdr. (leicht bestoßen und berieben).. Erste Ausgabe dieser ersten Übersetzung von al-Tusi's Werk zur Trigonometrie, sehr selten. - "Al-Tusi was the first to write a work on trigonometry independently of astronomy. Al-Tusi, in his Treatise on the Quadrilateral, gave an extensive exposition of spherical trigonometry, distinct from astronomy. It was in the works of Al-Tusi that trigonometry achieved the status of an independent branch of pure mathematics distinct from astronomy, to which it had been linked for so long" (Wikipedia Abruf vom 12.05.2015). - "This treatise Kashf al-qina' 'an asrar al-Shakl al-qatta' (Removal of the Veil from the Mysteries of the Secants Figure) bears sometimes other titles, that is al-Risalat al-qatta' fi 'ilm al-Handasa (Treatise on Secants in the Science of Geometry) and Kitab al-shakl al-qatta' (The Book on the Secant Figure). In all manuscripts, it is in Arabic. Al-Tusi's work is the first systematic trigonometry text, independent of astronomy in Muslim civilization. Hajji Khalifa proposes that this book is related to the first figure in the first chapter of Menelaus of Alexandria's (c. 70-140 CE) Kitab al-Ukar's (Sphaerica). It was also first written in Arabic and then translated into Persian by the author himself as a five-chapter book. The number of copies of the Kashf al-qina' in the libraries indicates how commonly and frequently it was used through scholars. The French and the Turkish translations of the book in the Ottoman state at the last quarter of 19th century and first quarter of the 20th century shows that this book still very well-liked. Alexandr Caratheodory published an Arabic edition of the text, accompanied by a French translation. The work was also translated into Turkish by Celal Saygin (d. 1954). The printing of this book in the Ottoman state at the end of the 19th century and translation of it in the beginning of the 20th century shows how the Ottomans were still interested al-Tusi's works" (www.muslimheritage.com). - Text auf Französisch und in Arabisch. Vorsatz mit hs. Vermerk. Gebräunt und etw. fleckig.
