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.

        Le tutu. Moeurs fin de siècle

      1891 - [4]-319 pages Paris, L. Genonceaux (Impr. F. Imbert), 1891, in-16, [4]-319 pages, demi-percaline bradel à coins de l'époque, pièce de titre rouge, ex-libris "A.G." en pied du dos, Une illustration dans le texte, d'après Binet, figurant l'hommier du docteur Messé-Malou et une page de "musique céleste". Rarissime édition originale de ce roman inclassable et étrange, d'une énigmatique "Princesse Sapho" : les bases de données des bibliothèques publiques et privées n'en connaissent que trois exemplaires (BNF, Harvard University, Universität Giessen) et 5 exemplaires seuls ont été localisés dans des bibliothèques particulières. Pascal Pia, qui a littéralement redécouvert ce "chef d'oeuvre inconnu" en 1966, en attribue la paternité à l'éditeur lui-même, Léon Genonceaux, audacieux et génial découvreur de l'époque du Symbolisme, à l'origine de la seconde édition des Chants de Maldoror ainsi que de la première édition du Reliquaire de Rimbaud ; les noms de Henri d'Argis ou encore de Laurent Tailhade ont également pu être avancés, mais l'auteur du Tutu demeure mystérieux. Les personnages de la galerie loufoque qui le compose ont en revanche bien existé, leurs noms ont à peine été déguisés : le héros principal, Mauri de Noirof n'est autre que Maurice de Brunhoff (1861-1937), éditeur d'art de la place parisienne, auquel il emprunte tant les traits du physique que du caractère ; sous le nom de Jardisse, "un raté" au nez "en forme de bosse de chameau [.] pouvant contenir un tombereau de roupies" se cache Henri d'Argis de Guillerville, ami de Verlaine et familier des cercles symbolistes ; madame Perle, "cocotte des Champs-Elysées" sert quant à elle de prétexte à introduire une certaine madame Merle, proche du ministre de l'intérieur Waldeck-Rousseau. "Tous les personnages du livre sont des excentriques, des extravagants, voire des monstres - au sens propre du mot. Le premier d'entre eux, Mauri de Noirof, épouse une riche héritière obèse et portée sur la boisson, engrosse une femme à deux têtes qui s'exhibait dans les cirques, subit le traitement grâce auquel un médecin procure aux femmes stériles, comme aux hommes, la possibilité d'allaiter, devient député, ministre de la Justice, et se livre en compagnie de sa mère à des orgies de débris anatomiques dans la garçonnière où Gabrielle Bompard et son amant avaient estourbi l'huissier Gouffé" (Pascal Pia). Au milieu de cette sarabande curieuse se lisent les Chants de Maldoror et la correspondance scatologique de la duchesse d'Orléans. A juste titre, les critiques modernes considèrent le Tutu comme un précurseur de Jarry, de Dada et du Surréalisme. Et pourtant ! L'ouvrage fut totalement ignoré de ses contemporains sans doute à cause des démêlés judiciaires que Léon Genonceaux traversait au moment de sa parution ; poursuivi par les autorités à cause de la publication de l'Hermine de Larocque et acculé face à Rodolphe Dazens qui lui reprochait d'avoir publié un texte inachevé en préface du Reliquaire, Genonceaux fuit la France, sans avoir eu le temps d'envoyer un seul exemplaire du Tutu aux critiques et aux revues : le roman ne bénéficia que d'une seule note, bien brève, dans la Bibliographie de la France du 6 juin 1891, annonçant la mise sous presse d'un "roman inédit, avec, dans le texte, une composition symbolique de l'auteur". Cette publicité est loin d'être éclairante, puisqu'elle soulève, au contraire, deux bizarreries venant s'ajouter aux autres qui entourent Le Tutu : le texte est daté du 26 septembre 1891 et la "composition symboliste" est signée, dans le bois, d'un certain Binet, à propos duquel nous nous ignorons tout et qui était également l'auteur de la couverture en couleurs représentant un personnage à petite barbiche pointue, portant monocle, veston rouge et tutu jaune. Pages jaunies, légère tache d'humidité en marge du faux-titre et du titre, petite salissure au titre et à la page 6. Coins et charnières un peu usés. Exemplaire néanmoins agréable.

        A Narrative of Incidents in the Eventful Life of a Physician.

      Melbourne: M. L. Hutchinson, 1891. Octavo, with the frontispiece mounted photographic portrait and 24 plates, owner inscription to flyleaf; original blue-green cloth. First edition, the superior issue in cloth with mounted photographic frontispiece portrait found only in this issue.Singleton, a Dublin-born physician and philanthropist, emigrated to Victoria in 1851. He practised there throughout the gold rush years, assisting the poor. Rather puritanical, he was in other ways a man of advanced views - supporting women medical practitioners, for example - and he was a key influence on colonial society. He became a gaol visitor, opposing capital punishment and becoming a thorn in the side of John Price, then Governor of Pentridge Prison. Among his major philanthropic achievements were the initiation of the Singleton Bread Fund for the unemployed, the establishment of night shelters for destitute women, a mission to the blind, Widows Cottages in Collingwood, the West Melbourne night shelters for men, the Women's Model Lodging House, and the Retreat for Friendless and Fallen Women (now Singleton House) in Collingwood. Fine.

        Über Tätowierungen der Prostituierten" in: Monatshefte für Praktische Dermatologie, March 1, 1891 (XII, No. 5)

      Hamburg und Leipzig: Leopold Voss, 1891. Small 4to., pp. 205-248, bound in 20th-century marbled paper wraps, orange endpapers. Illustrated with a double-page 2-color lithograph of prostitutes' tattoos. Light toning, overall in excellent condition, suitable for exhibition and study. This infamous essay proposes a fourfold correlation between female prostitutes, their tattoos, crime, and disease, and includes a double-page color plate with examples of "old school" flash art tattoo examples, as observed from patients under the study of Dr. Bergh. The article also explores ethnographic and historical applications of tattoos, and assesses relationships between tattooing and diseases (dermatological and otherwise). "Among the 80 tattooed Copenhagen prostitutes out of a total 800 examined by Bergh, more than half had been tattooed by a young ex-sailor who had set up shop there in the 1880s. He had revived a fashion that had otherwise allegedly been declining among prostitutes. The women's suggestibility was underlined by the typical maritime motifs described on them, including a ship in full sail, anchors, and a patriotic flag decoration with cannon." (SOURCE: See Jane Caplan's "Educating the Eye" in: Sexology in Culture: Labeling Bodies and Desires, ed. Lucy Bland, Laura Doan, University of Chicago Press, 1998, p. 110). The remaining articles in the present journal are peer-reviewed research studies on tuberculosis and Lupus, disposition and causes in people whose skin flushes, with the end sections covering book and article reviews and miscellaneous source citations. Bergh's study was originally published in Danish as "Om Tatoveringer hos de offentlige Fruentimmer" in an 1891 issue of the Hospitals-Tidende medical journal, now equally rare. Contemporary reception of Bergh's study was not universally favorable, i.a., New York Medical Journal (LXXXVIII, 1903, p. 759): "Bergh, of Copenhagen [...] declares that few women other than public prostitutes are found to be tattooed, and those few are clandestine prostitutes. We hope that no arbitrary conclusions will be drawn from this statement, for doubtless many a silly but virtuous girl has had herself tattooed."

He created 39 designs for this volume of verse, engraved on wood and photo-engraved by Emery Walker and Arthur Leverett. Many of the poems reflect Crane's increasing involvement, from the 1880s on, in ""the politics of art"" and his conviction that ""the art of the people… would flourish only when the people were free"" (DNB). Mathew printed several editions of varying limitations; this one, the finest and most uncommon, consisted of 25 copies for England (with three additional reserved for Crane) and 15 for the United States.

        Fine unsigned Tableau Vivant representing 'A Japanese Family' by Hughes & Mullins, (Duke of Connaught, 1850-1942, Son of Queen Victoria, Governor General of Canada) with his wife LOUISE MARGARET (Alexandra Victoria, 1860-1917, Daughter of Prince Friedrich Karl of Prussia, Duchess of Connaught) and their daughters MARGARET (1882-1920, Princess of Connaught, 'Daisy', Crown Princess of Sweden) & PATRICIA (Princess of Connaught, 1886-1974, 'Patsy', later Lady Patricia Ramsay) & son ARTHUR (1883-1938, Major General)]

      1891 - showing the family dresed in Japanese costume, the Duke and Duchess are standing and the Duchess is holding a parasol, the children are seated and standing next to them, stamped 'carbon print' on the verso, 10" x 8", no place, (Osborne, Isle of Wight) no date, circa There is a copy of this photo at Osborne. The practice of the Household performing tableau vivants over the New Year was revived some time after the death of the Prince Consort. There were normally several scenes, each representing a letter or word, followed by a final scene depicting the entire word. The Tableau often reproduced paintings - a particularly successful one being 'La Rixe' (The Brawl) after the painting by E. Meissonier which had been given to the Prince Consort in 1856. The scene was a quarrel in a tavern which Queen Victoria considered 'a truthful presentation of the picture'. They were not always so well received - a biblical tableau of Naomi and Ruth in 1888 was described by the Queen as 'not quite so successful as it might have been, owing to the ladies getting the giggles and shaking'. The Tableau Vivant photo is an unusual form of photography, which Queen Victoria had a passion for from the 1850s. This is one of the later ones which are more difficult to find as the majority of them have remained in Royal Collections. Princesses Helena Victoria and Marie Louise spent much of their year revolved around the Queen, which dates the picture to 1889 as the Princess Marie Louise was married to a German Prince the following year. The marriage did not prove happy and the Queen sent her an open telegram ordering her 'home to me'. From the collection of Lady Patricia Ramsay, daughter of the Duke of Connaught.

        Also sprach Zarathustra, Vierter und letzter Theil (Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Part 4)

      Leipzig: C.G. Naumann, 1891. First edition. Contemporary boards. Very Good. NIETZSCHE, Friedrich. Also sprach Zarathustra, Vierter und letzter Theil, C. G. Naumann, Leipzig, 1891. TP + Quote page + 5-[135] + half title + 3-21 + [23] = Inhalt, Octavo. First Edition. Schaberg 58. The famous first public printing of Nietzsches notorious conclusion to Zarathustra. Although printed in 1890 and dated 1891, this book did not see public release until March of 1892 due to legal arguments between Nietzsches sister, Elisabeth and the publisher. Elisabeth was worried that the books would all be confiscated as obscene and therefore negotiated until she received a contract from Naumann that protected her against this possibility. This edition which is cited in Printing and the Mind of Man as the first edition (ignoring the private printing of 1885) is rare in any condition. When copies do make their rare appearances on the market, they almost always come bound with the original three books (1883-1884) or, more commonly, bound with copies of the three books as re-issued in 1886. Containing the first edition printing of Nietzsches poems: Dionysian Dithyrambs.CONDITION: Original contemporary blindstamped boards. Spine restored preserving original printed label. Very good.

        Contribute [to THE STRAND MAGAZINE]; The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, (all Doyle), Martin Hewitt, Investigator (Arthur Morrison), etc. Volumes I to X.

      London: George Newnes, 1891-1895.. Large octavo, with illustrations. 10 volumes. Original magazine parts bound in half-yearly volumes of half speckled calf, gilt, edges speckled red. Some light occasional thumbing and marking within; externally fine. An attractive copy in a robust recent leather binding. Contains the first appearance of all the above mentioned Sherlock Holmes stories, plus 'The Adventure of the Cardboard Box' (vol.5, 1893) which was not published in book form until 'His Last Bow' (1917). Several of these Holmes stories feature far more illustrations (notably by Sidney Paget) than in book form, and in some (such as 'Cardboard Box ') the illustrations are exclusive to 'The Strand'. Doyle also contributes the historical caper 'The Exploits and Adventures of Brigadier Gerard' (vol. 8,9,10). The set also includes science fiction from Jules Verne; 'Dr Trifulgas' (vol 4, 1893), and 'An Express of the Future (vol 10, 1895). Volumes 7-8 feature the entire first series of cases for the consulting detective Martin Hewitt; probably the chief rival of Sherlock Holmes- indeed Morrison's ingenious crime stories were commissioned by 'The Strand' entirely due to an appetite for Doyle imitations. A superb literary magazine.
