        Journeys in Persia and Kurdistan.

      London: John Murray,, 1891. Including a Summer in the Upper Karun Region and a Visit to the Nestorian Rayahs. By Mrs. Bishop (Isabella L. Bird). 2 volumes, octavo (204 x 130 mm). Original light blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, front boards decoratively stamped in blue with titles and concentric frames gilt, patterned endpapers, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Photographic frontispiece to vol. 1, 12 engraved plates including the frontispiece to vol. 2, engravings to the text. Bookplate of Francis Gray Smart (1844–1912, physician and pioneer of homeopathy) to front pastedowns. Tips bumped, trivial mark to vol. 1 spine, superficial splits to vol. 1 inner hinge and to head of vol. 2 front joint. An excellent copy. First edition of one of the most important English accounts of Persia in the 19th century (Wright, The English Amongst the Persians, p. 149), by "the most notable woman traveller of her time" (ODNB). "The archetypal Victorian Lady Traveller … Isabella Bird did not begin her travelling career until quite late in life … for until she was forty she was occupied as the family spinster in caring for her parents" (Robinson). For health reasons she sailed for Australia, New Zealand the Sandwich Islands, then visiting in China and Japan. Following a trip to India in 1879, Bird landed at Basra on 1 January 1880 intending "to ride across little known parts of Turkey and Persia, to visit Christian outposts and the ancient communities of the Armenians and Nestorians in Kurdistan. She fell in with Major Herbert Sawyer of the Indian army. Her reputation as a traveller must have preceded her, for the tough officer of thirty-eight agreed to set off with the widow of sixty (said to be in poor health). On 21 January 1890 they left Baghdad for Tehran on the roughest journey in her experience. It took them forty-five days, through driving and drifting snow, sheltering at night in overcrowded and filthy caravanserai. So impressed was Sawyer with his companion's courage and efficiency that he took her with him on his official journey among the Bakhtiari tribespeople of south-west Persia" (ODNB). After Bird finished helping Sawyer with his survey work, she rode north for the Black Sea. Bird's obituary in The Guardian considered her account "in some respects … the best of her works, for both country and people and people are full of interest and variety, and her journey included a visit to some of the little-known Christian settlements in Syria, whose archaic ceremonies and and curious way of living she sympathetically describes". The year after publication Bird (1831–1904) became the first woman elected to the Royal Geographical Society.

        Main-Travelled Roads: Six Mississippi Valley Stories.

      Boston: Arena Publishing Co., 1891. 8vo, original blue cloth, silver lettering. Garland's first substantial book (preceded only by the play Under the Wheel) which foreshadows all of his early realistic fiction on working men and women, particularly Midwestern farmers. This original edition did not sell well, but was extensively reviewed and praised as the work of a promising young writer. There were numerous subsequent editions (including one by Stone & Kimball). ¶ Inscribed on the front free endpaper "For Miss Minna Smith / My Friendly Critic - much / valued. / Hamlin Garland / Roxbury. / Nov. 3/91." Minna Smith and her sister Gertrude were minor Boston authors and close to the circle of authors (Mary Wilkins Freeman, Alice Brown, Bradford Torrey, Alice Guiney, et al.) that nurtured the young Garland and listened to and commented on his literary lectures. Poor quality paper a little browned; very good copy.

        Gilbertianae. Isthmian Rhymes

      (Great Barrington MA): (Douglas Bros.). (1891). First. First edition. Cloth gilt. Boards a bit soiled, and corners slightly worn, a solid, very good or better copy. Published (sort of) anonymously, this copy is Inscribed by the author: "G.A. Cunningham, Jr. with the kindest regards of the Author. Colon, P.I. 1893." The author, James Stanley Gilbert, worked in the isthmus of Panama starting in 1886 for the Panama Railroad Company, later becoming an agent for a steamship company. He was one of the first Americans to write about pre-canal Panama, and was known as "The Poet of Panama." While his poetry was both popular and well-regarded in a Kiplingesque-manner, his status as a businessman-poet hurt his reputation with critics generally. Although his later book, Panama Patchwork, was re-issued many times (thirteen printings between 1906-1935), this title is very uncommon, especially signed. OCLC lists but one copy in an American library (Brown University). .

The publication of this volume follows long negotiations during which Doughty tried unsuccessfully to sell the Nabatean inscriptions he brought back with him from North Africa in the years 1876-77, to the British Museum and then to the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Museum of Berlin. The Paris based Academie des Inscriptions were preparing to publish, under the direction of Ernest Renan, a Corpus of Semitic Inscriptions. Doughty accepted their offer to publish this volume quickly (under the pressure of Huber's second visit to Northern Arabia) and for no remuneration except for 150 free copies. Renan and the Epigraphists J.Derenbourg, de Vogue, P. Berger, J. Halévy and Clermont -Ganneau translated the 27 Nabatean texts copied in Midian-Saleh. These inscriptions in Aramaic show that most of the Surnames are in Arabic, which proves the origins of these Nabateans. Doughty deposited his copies of the book with Klincksieck, the bookseller that Renan's recommended, but by the end of 1885 only 31 copies were sold. Some of the plates in this book were later used for ‘Arabia Deserta’, and Cambridge University Press had to borrow them from the Academie for a fee which aroused Doughty's indignation on the grounds that he had originally supplied them for free.

This HOKUSAI'S REALISTIC SKETCHBOOK is a Meiji-era rendering of Hokusai favorites, here recreated in color woodcut in a relatively larger format than one usually encounters for Hokusai ehon: Each of the 20 double page folding prints expands to a full 20.3 x 31.5cm in image size - about the size of a horizontal chu^ban print. The covers are slightly soiled and the printed paper title label missing, the interior clean. The designs are quite nice, the printings quite good -- overall an interesting and unusual late Hokusai item.

      1891. WALPOLE, Horace. The Letters of Horace Walpole, Fourth Earl of Oxford, Edited by Peter Cunningham. London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1891. Nine volumes. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter green morocco, raised bands, top edges gilt. $2200.Limited edition, number 53 of only 100 large-paper copies printed on handmade paper, with dozens of full-page mounted India proof portraits.""It is as a letter-writer that Walpole attains his highest point. In these epistles to Mann, to Montagu, to Mason, to Conway, to Lady Hervey, to Lady Ossory, to Hannah More, and a host of others, almost every element of wit and humour, variety and charm, is present. For gossip, anecdote, epigram, description, illustration, there is nothing quite like them in English, and Byron did not overpraise them when he called them `incomparable'"" (DNB XX, 632). A most desirable edition of ""the entire series of Walpole's correspondence,"" first published in 1857 (Lowndes V, 2822). Fine condition, handsomely bound.

Gil Blas pubblicato questa poesia in "Poeti d'amore" del 23 dal 29 Novembre 1891, o venti giorni dopo la scomparsa del poeta. Numero con una grande illustrazione di Steinlen e una pagina piena di Rabier.

Gil Blas voleva prima letteraria. Grandi piume tutti parlando in cronache che erano molto successo: Guy de Maupassant (o Maufrigneuse) la cui collaborazione è stata la più lunga (1881-1888), Paolo Arena, Emile Bergerat, Clovis Hugues Rene Maizeroy Jean Richepin eccetera Altrettanto importanti sono state le soap opera, firmati da Emile Zola, Hector Malot, Théodore de Banville, e Octave Mirbeau particolare. Da parte sua, Maupassant pubblicato "Una vita" (febbraio-aprile 1883), "Bel Ami" (aprile-maggio 1885), "Mont-Oriol" (dicembre 1886-jévrier 1887), ecc Oltre a questi cronica e questi periodici, Zola ha difeso alcune delle sue opere sul giornale, attraverso le "Lettere al Direttore" (su "Dream", 8 novembre 1888, sul tema "La Bestia Umana" 13 novembre 1889) .Bel copia. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition pré-originale posthume du poème "Première Soirée" d'Arthur Rimbaud, dont une variante a été publiée précédemment sous le titre "Trois baisers" et tirée du manuscrit du Cahier de Douai qui, selon les volontés de son auteur, ne fut jamais publié ; seuls quelques poèmes furent édités en fac-similé. 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

        The author of the Confederate patriotic anthem "My Maryland" expresses his surprise that someone "seems to want a copy of 'My Maryland' enough to pay for it"

      Augusta, Georgia, March 21, 1891. 5" x 8". "Autograph Letter Signed ""James R. Randall"", 1 page, 5"" x 8"", Augusta, Georgia, March 21, [18]91 to ""My dear Eugene"", concerning a person interested in purchasing a copy of his patriotic Civil War poem, ""My Maryland."" Light even toning, expected folds, else very good to fine condition. He writes, in full: ""The writer of [the] enclosed letter [not present] seems to want a copy of 'My Maryland' enough to pay or it. If he bite[s], let me know. I arrived here, safe & well, last Friday. May Brunswick man cannot offer enough sesterces [ie. coins] to make it an inducement. My Louisiana man is, so far, not ready to come to a final settlement. I suppose the monstrous mob down there unsettled everything temporarily"" (Randall was making an allusion to a riot that erupted in New Orleans targeting Italians on March 14, 1891).Randall was born in Baltimore, attended Georgetown University, and was teaching in a Creole school in Louisiana when he learned of a Baltimore mob's attack on a Union regiment (the 6th Massachusetts) as it marched through Baltimore to Washington. A classmate of Randall's was among those wounded when the panicky troops opened fire on the crowd. ""Deeply stirred, he was unable to sleep, and rose at midnight to jot down the lines beginning 'the despot's heel is on thy shore... '"" (DAB). Published in the New Orleans Delta in May 1861, papers throughout the South reprinted his stirring verses. Two Baltimore women adapted its words to the music of the well-known German song ""O, Tannenbaum."" Song-sheet editions proliferated and it rapidly became ""the battle song of the South."" Second in popularity only to Emmett's ""Dixie,"" it was chosen by Maryland in 1939 as its official song and ""has also... become the anthem for the annual Preakness horse race at Pimlico Race Track"" (David A. Randall, American Patriotic Songs, Exhibition catalogue, 1968, p. [13]. James J. Fuld, The Book of World-Famous Music, pp. 355-357.)Based on extant auction records, Randall had been producing fair copies of ""My Maryland"" for admirers beginning sometime in the 1880s. The prospect of selling copies may have induced him to increase production as most of the dated fair copies that have appeared on the market appear to have been accomplished from 1891 and afterwards."

      St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands: Jno. N. Lightbourn, 1891. Broadside, 15 x 7 3/4 inches. Matted. Faint pale paste residue at top edge, light soiling from handling at lower edge. Very good. A unique broadside advertising for a performance of the Tennessee Jubilee Singers on the island of St. Thomas in late 1891. From 1889 to 1891, the group conducted two lengthy tours of the Caribbean, which served to introduce the musical genre to the region. The tours "marked the successful debut of professional jubilee singing in the Caribbean, and...launched the international career of the brilliant young soprano soloist Matilda Sissieretta Jones, the "Black Patti" (Abbott). The performances generated rave reviews, some of which were carried in the St. Thomas newspaper published by the printer of this advertisement, LIGHTBOURN'S MAIL NOTES. The group was known for popularizing more serious forms of black musical performance, such as slave spirituals, and for not always incorporating the usual comedic exaggerations of minstrelry. This broadside advertises the entire program of the upcoming performance, with the names of songs and their signers. An unusual survival in excellent condition. Not in OCLC.

      New Orleans; Fred. E. Kitziger. 1891. Hardcover. Original boards. 4to. 202 pages. 30 cm. First edition. Composed and published by Fred E. Kitziger, organist of the Touro Synagogue. Singerman 3677. Second Volume, a total of four volumes were published (1888-1899) . Contains front advertisement matter containing testimonials, of interest concerning the widespread use of Shire Yehudah throughout the United States. Attractive hand laid and drawn music notation. Bound in original blue boards with pastedown gilt title. Frederick Emil Kitziger (1844–1903) “A widely known composer of liturgical music for the early Reform movement, Frederick Kitziger served as organist and musical director for multiple New Orleans-area synagogues in the late 19th century. Â… Together, the four volumes of Shire Yehudah contain 347 settings for Sabbath and High Holy Day services. Especially in the first two volumes, Kitziger selected prayer texts from the various prayerbooks then in use among Reform and Reform-leaning synagogues in America—chiefly, Isaac Mayer WiseÂ’s Minhag America (1856) , in which Hebrew is prominent, with English and, to a lesser extent, German playing secondary roles; and David EinhornÂ’s Olath Tamid (the first part also 1856) , which favors English. Kitziger may also have relied for some settings on two other prayerbooks current in American Reform services that are known to have been used in New Orleans as well: Benjamin Szold and Marcus JastrowÂ’s Avodath Yisrael and another by Adolph Huebsch, who also compiled a hymnal, with text in German, adapted to preexisting tunes. In some instances Kitziger even provided optional settings of prayers according to different versions or inclusions in the various prayerbooks. Obviously, this rendered his music usable by a larger number of congregations than would have been the case had it been modeled on any single prayerbook. Â… KitzigerÂ’s own sales records indicate that by the end of the century Shire Yehudah had been purchased by synagogues (presumably Reform) in thirty-seven states. There were apparently sales to Canada, England, and even Germany, although it is difficult to gauge the actual usage abroad. In New Orleans, KitzigerÂ’s music enjoyed regular and extensive use, and much of it found its way into the regular repertoire of major synagogues elsewhere in the South. Certain settings became standard in Reform worship throughout the United States. ” (Milken Archive) Subjects: Synagogue music - Sabbath services. Choruses, Sacred (Mixed voices, 4 parts) with organ - Scores. Synagogue music - United States - New Orleans. OCLC lists 8 copies. Light wear to boards, internally clean and fresh. Good + condition.
