        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."

Reliure signée René Aussourd, Edition originale de ce recueil, considéré comme capital dans la découverte -relative- de Rimbaud, à la fin du XIXème siècle. Trente et un des quarante et un poèmes sont en effet publiés ici pour la première fois, rassemblés et présentés par Rodolphe Darzens. "Ayant constaté que la Préface qu'il avait écrite avait été dénaturée Darzens fit saisir les exemplaires de cette édition", qui n'avait été tirée qu'à 550 exemplaires. "Reliquaire reparut alors sans préface, d'où nouvelle réclamation de M. Darzens, et nouvelle saisie." (Vicaire, VI, 1135). Pendant ce temps, Rimbaud était à l'agonie à l'Hôpital de Marseille, où il mourut le 10 novembre 1891. Parfait exemplaire, bien complet de la Préface. (Vicaire, VI, 1135. Carteret, II, 272). René Aussourd, "à la fois excellent relieur et très bon doreur", neveu de Charles Meunier, s'installa rue du Fouarre à Paris en 1913.

        GRAND CHARITY CONCERT FOR THE POOR GIVEN BY THE TENNESSEE JUBILEE SINGERS WEDNESDAY EVENING NOVEMBER 25, 1891

      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. Lynn Abbott, OUT OF SIGHT: THE RISE OF AFRICAN AMERICAN POPULAR MUSIC, 1889-1895 (University Press of Mississippi, 2003), p.27.

        SHIRE YEHUDAH = SONGS OF JUDAH: A COLLECTION OF SACRED SONGS FOR SOLI AND CHORUSES WITH ORGAN ACCOMPANIMENT FOR SABBATH MORNING AND EVENING SERVICES: SECOND VOLUME

      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.

        Life On The Mississippi

      Charles L. Webster & Co., New York 1891 - Original brown pictorial cloth, gilt lettering on spine and gilt illustration on cover. All in very good condition. Head and toe of spine is lightly worn. Owners name and date (1892) neatly hand written on second front fly page. Green floral end papers. The book was first published in 1883 by James R. Osgood who went bankrupt soon after. When Twain started his own publishing firm he put it in the hands of his nephew, Charles L. Webster. Webster acquired Osgood's inventory, including copies already in binding and unbound sheets, as well as the printing plates. He also acquired the brasses for stamping the bindings, and when he stamped the bindings used on the unbound sheets he simply changed the imprint at the foot of the spine. In 1888 and 1891, Webster issued more copies, and like Osgood before him went bankrupt soon after, leaving Twain with huge debts that took a decade to pay. Twain considered this work his masterpiece, and the first half of the book contains some of his most poetic prose about the subject he knew best and which served two years later as the setting for his greatest novel. "Chapter XXXI is a complete short story in itself and contains the first fictional use of fingerprints as a means of criminal identification." More than 300 illustrations. 624 pages.

        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.

        Picturesque Tumut. [cover title of a photograph album].

      - n.p. 1891. Oblong album 275x232mm, worn half calf rebacked, titled in gilt on the front cover; 36 albumen prints 200x150mm with small variations, on card leaves, each captioned in pencil. Spotting of the card leaves affecting a few photos. Each photo with the blindstamp of Kerry & Jones 308 George Street Sydney. Kerry's jaunt from Gundagai to Cooma in early 1891 was well publicised: there was a three part well illustrated spread in the Illustrated Sydney News in March and April 1891. Kerry was at work, he been hired by an unnamed client looking to the tourist possibilities of the highlands. Some of these photos have become almost famous through reproduction. Investigation into the Chinese tobacco industry can't afford to miss Kerry's series of workers sorting, carrying, loading, in and round the drying shed at Gocup. His photos of the house and creek (they form a diptych) at Talbingo Station where Mrs Lampe gave them lunch is part of the Miles Franklin story - it's where she was born, but it seems that despite active searching she never found a copy of this photo, later photos are in her papers. What you may never see reproduced elsewhere are his photos of Yarrangobilly Station. This is where Mr Campbell put them up for the night before heading into the Yarrangobilly Caves. Kerry went to some trouble, trudging the hills around the station and photographing it from three angles. The station was a pretty bleak looking place. It has some lonely, pioneering charm but even Kerry couldn't make it picturesque enough to be included in the illustrated newspaper spread so it is these photos that convinces me that this album is directly connected to Yarrangobilly and its owner. There exists another album of Kerry photos called 'Picturesque Tumut' but that was prepared by the people of Tumut in January 1892 for the Earl of Jersey, the new governor who visited the district and caves. You will find one view of the station in that - and how could they leave it out considering he must have been there on his way to the new caves discovered on Kerry's trip? But three views? Who else would want three views?

Scott Fraser and a photographic copy of a watercolour portrait of a gentleman, possibly the author, inserted. A diary of a voyage to the Canary Islands in June and July 1891.

He describes the coal labourers coming aboard and the view of the harbour and other ships at anchor. He checked in at the Santa Catalina Hotel which he also describes, as well as his fellow guests. There follows a description of the island, its inhabitants, industries, visits to the interior, etc. and a meeting with two Englishmen, Mr. P- and Mr. T- who ?lead a bachelor life.?

The girth band of the saddle suddenly broke and the rider. without a moment?s warning was thrown and would have precipitated head foremost over the edge of the path but for the promptitude of the driver who seized him by the left foot as he fell.the mule drivers are notoriously careless of their gear.? The return voyage, ending in Antwerp, is described more briefly in only three pages.

        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."
