        The Kiautschou Bay Concession - Colonial German Qingdao

      Kiel [Northern Germany], 1896-1899. Fair copy manuscript account written by Johann Heinrich Hermann Neubauer (born 1874) who was a volunteer in the German Imperial Navy, recounting his numerous voyages and service in vast corners of the globe including China, Japan, Russia, the Phillipines, Brazil and Patagonia, over a period of seven years, looking back to his naval training in April 1892 and leading up to December 1899. Especially captivating are the descriptions of China and South America. With frontis portrait photograph of the writer in navy attire, taken in Nagasaki, and manuscript dedication to adjacent leaf dated 18 December 1896 when he began the work. Text is in German. With tipped-in manuscript message by a Navy Captain on the stationery of the SMS Gefion pertaining to 13 July 1896, and a tipped-in German newspaper printed in Tsingtao 29 March 1899. 8vo. 271 in manuscript. Brown cloth boards, original endpapers. A pleasing naval memoire in a fine hand, centered largely on China. German imperialism is the distinct theme in this manuscript volume, which features naval service during the occupation of Kiautschou Bay, and foremost German colonial influence over Tsingtao as its primary East Asia trading and naval post, while offering detailed observations of the Tsingtao in particular. Up and coming German colonies in Brazil also appear in the journal as the writer served on a vessel sent to quell the Brazilian Naval Revolts (Revoltas da Armada) in Rio de Janeiro in 1893. A voyage was further made to Manila in an effort to secure German colonial possessions in the Philippines. Neubauer had just come of age when he joined the volunteer navy reserve in 1892, and through the service, his early adult years would be replete with adventure as he sailed around the world observing and participating in colonial Germany's foreign expansion and commerce, particularly in China. The present journal begins with a partial summary of his assignments with the Kaiserliche Marine (German Imperial Navy) from his training onboard the artillery ship SMS Mars, subsequent posts on the SMS Seeadler, the SMS Condor, the SMS Alexandrine, and finally being assigned to SMS Gefion in May of 1895. The volume's dedication suggests that he intended to write the full account of his voyages and overseas experiences upon his return in 1896, however, the contents continue beyond the dedication date and introductory resumé of sorts, reveal that he was quickly offered another post - to return to the East Asia Squadron in China with SMS Gefion. Following a briefing of his earliest voyages, some twenty-five pages describe his adventures with SMS Alexandrine in South America. In 1893 this vessel was sent to Brazil where the Revolta da Armada (Revolt of the Fleet), though not a direct attack, did threaten German interests. Here we find mention of Montevideo in Uruguay, Rio de Janeiro and surrounding settlements, Santa Cruz del Sol, Joinville and Santa Catarina in Brazil, Lima in Peru, as well as Patagonia. Fascinating observations are made, from the typical nineteenth century mindset, for instance, an encounter with "true savage Indians" in Patagonia. [After the Ragamuffin War of 1845, German immigration to Brazil resulted in the formation of new colonies, most significantly Blumenau in 1850 and Joinville in 1851, both in Santa Catarina state. Today these are among the wealthiest parts of Brazil and still retain a strong influence of German culture. By the end of the 19th century, 122 German communities had been created in Rio Grande do Sul, and many others in Santa Catarina, Paraná, São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro. Germans helped to establish a middle-class population in Brazil, a country that was formerly divided between slaves and their masters.] Continuing with SMS Alexandrine, the writer would find himself in Japan, the ship and her captain being commissioned to monitor the First Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895. Some ten or so pages are devoted to this mission, with frequent mention of Nagasaki where Chinese sailors had started a riot in 1886, and also Yokohama, a principal port town. In March 1895, Alexandrine was recalled to Germany and while en route, she stopped in Morocco to pressure local authorities into paying reparations for the murder of two German citizens. This part of the voyage is also described. The ship returned to Wilhelmshaven on 25 May 1895 and it seems that five days later Neubauer was paid off and home in Kiel. herlands, which he mentions, before returning to Kiel on 1 December.

        A Book of Strife in the form of The Diary of an Old Soul.

      London: Longmans, Green & Co., and New York,, 1892. New Edition. Duodecimo (167 x 79 mm). Contemporary olive morocco by Hatchards of Piccadilly, spine gilt on compartments with titles direct and fleuron tools, gilt rolled border to sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Extremities rubbed, covers tanned, front joint just starting at ends, hinges repaired, an attractive copy in very good condition. Pencil annotations to the text throughout. The autograph book of Ottoline Morrell (1873-1938), signed by the author and a near-comprehensive array of her Bloomsbury, bohemian, and aristocratic acquaintances. This is a new edition of George Macdonald's Book of Strife in the form of The Diary of an Old Soul (1880). It prints Macdonald's 366-verse poem on the rectos only, and was produced so that people could sign their names facing the verse representing their birthday. The printed Dedication is a poem by Macdonald explaining this: "Sweet friends, receive my offering. You will find / Against each worded page a white page set: - / This is the mirror of each friendly mind / Reflecting that. In this book we are met. / Make it, dear hearts, of worth to you indeed: - / Let your white page be ground, my print be seed, / Growing to golden ears, that faith and hope shall feed." The author has signed the dedication in this copy, and dated his signature to 1895. This copy derives directly from the Morrell estate by descent. We cannot say whether the book was hers when Macdonald signed it, though it is possible. The majority of the signatures attest to Ottoline's use of it as an autograph book through the Garsington glory days of the late 1910s and 20s, and into the 30s. However there are some early signatures of people who died before the First World War, such as Henrietta S. B. L'Estrange (1816-1904) and Hannah Pearsall Smith (née Whitall, 1832-1911, a prominent Women's Suffragist who became the mother-in-law of Bertrand Russell through her daughter Alys - the Bloomsbury writer Logan was her son). This copy must have been more to Morrell than a festschrift or visitor's book, for there is evidence that she travelled with it: on his 27 January birthday appears the signature of none other than Kaiser Wilhelm II, whom she met in his post-war exile in Holland while visiting her cousin Count Goddard Bentinck in 1932. As well as those mentioned above, the signatures include (but are by no means limited to): Herbert Asquith, Earl of Oxford (1852-1928, prime minister), Max Beerbohm (1872-1956) and his wife Florence Khan (1878-1951, actress), Elizabeth Bibesco (1897-1945, writer, socialite and daughter of Herbert Asquith), Augustine Birrell (1850-1933, Liberal politician and essayist), Mary (1900-1957) and her husband Edmund Blunden (1896-1974, poet), Maurice Bowra (1898-1971, classicist and critic), David Cecil (1902-1986, writer), Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977), Padraic Colum (1881-1972, writer) and his wife Mary (1884-1957, literary critic), T. S. Eliot (1888-1965), John Galsworthy (1867-1933), Robert Gathorne-Hardy (1902-1973, garden writer), Mark Gertler (1891-1939, Bloomsbury painter), Duncan Grant (1885-1978, signed twice), Florence Hardy (1879-1937, children's author and second wife of Thomas Hardy), L. P. Hartley (1895-1972), Ralph Hodgson (1871-1962, poet), Aldous Huxley (1894-1963), Sigurd von Islemann (1884-1952, Kaiser Wilhelm's right-hand man in exile, and diarist), Augustus John (1878-1961, signed twice), Crompton Llewelyn Davies (1868-1935, uncle to the Peter Pan brothers), Goldsworthy Lowes-Dickinson (1862-1932, Cambridge political scientist and philosopher), Desmond MacCarthy (1877-1952, literary critic), William Maclagan (1826-1910, Archbishop of York) and his son Eric (1879-1951, art historian and director of the V&A), Aristide Maillol (1861-1944, French artist), Violet Manners, Marchioness of Granby (1856-1937, artist and aristocrat, mother of Diana Cooper), Walter de la Mare (1873-1956), Leonide Massine (1896-1979, Ballet Russes dancer and choreographer), Hope Mirrlees (1887-1978, poet), T. F. Powys (1875-1953, writer), as well as his wife Violet and their son Francis, Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) and his wife Alys, Umberto Morra (1897-1981, Italian journalist and anti-fascist), Leo Myers (1881-1944, novelist), Siegfried Sassoon (1886-1967), W. H. Smith, Viscount Hambleden (1903-1948, heir to and chairman of the family firm), Gilbert Spencer (1892-1979, artist and brother of Stanley), James Stephens (1880-1950, Irish poet and novelist), Lytton Strachey (1880-1932), Iris Tree (1897-1968, bohemian poet and model), Ambroise Vollard (1866-1939, Modernist art dealer), H. G. Wells (1866-1946), Victoria Wemyss (1890-1994, aristocrat and photographer), and W. B. Yeats (1865-1939). There are also numerous members of Ottoline's Anglo-Dutch family the Bentincks (which included Celia Glamis, 1862-1939, the grandmother of Queen Elizabeth II), as well as a number of Grenfells and many other miscellaneous aristocrats. In this rarefied, yet crowded, atmosphere, we also find Ottoline's nanny "Powie" and nurse Nina. This is a unique object - emblematic of inter-war high-society, and thoroughly representative of Ottoline herself, who is best remembered for the extraordinary people she knew.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("Isabel Burton"), to a Miss Garton, requesting a deletion

      Our Cottage, 2 Wosple Road, Mortlake, 1892. 2 pp. pen and ink on mourning stationery. 8vo. Old folds, remnants of mounting. 2 pp. pen and ink on mourning stationery. 8vo. WARY OF THE WRATH OF THE "BURNT [MANUSCRIPTS] PEOPLE" Isabel Burton (1831-1896), the wife of Sir Richard Burton and herself an adventurer, travel writer, and the biographer of her husband, writes to an editorial assistant to request the deletion of a line in an unidentified piece about Captain Burton, making reference to the infamous burning of Burton's papers after his death. Reading in part: "Do you mind suggesting to the printer or editor if needful that one sentence about Richard with all 'his misfortunes being richer than a millionaire because he had such a perfect wife' should be omitted - It's about 6 lines I think & it is very nice for me but I think it will draw down all the spite of the agnostics & the burnt MSS people upon me once again ... It is only one long sentence & as I have added one long sentence ... it will make the length almost equal." In one of the most notorious literary scandals of the 19th century, Isabel Burton burnt a large number of her husband's papers following his death in 1890, claiming, among other things, that Captain Burton's ghost appeared to her and insisted she do so. Among these papers was the manuscript of Burton's translation from the Arabic of a 15th-century erotic work, The Perfumed Garden, the loss of which was especially lamented. The public approbation Isabel received from Burton's devotees was loud and vigorous, and she was forced to strenuously defend her actions in print; three months after this letter, for example, she published in the New Review "Sir Richard Burton: An Explanation and a Defence" (November 1892), in which she argued, in part, that the rough state of the manuscript necessitated her burning it, for the sake of protecting Burton's literary reputation. The same month she wrote the present letter she began work on her Life of Captain Sir Richd. F. Burton (London: 1893), in which she described the ghostly visitations and further justified her actions.

        THE CAPTAIN OF THE POLESTAR and Other Tales

      1892 - [inscribed by A. Conan Doyle] Fourth Edition. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1892. 24 pp ads dated "6/92". Original maroon cloth lettered on the spine in silver. "Fourth Edition," which is to say the fourth printing of the first edition, issued with its silver stamping (and a frontispiece plate) as a volume in Longmans Green's "Silver Library." The first printing, issued in March 1890, had constituted Doyle fifth book -- following A STUDY IN SCARLET, THE MYSTERY OF CLOOMBER, MICAH CLARKE and MYSTERIES AND ADVENTURES. It is a volume of ten short stories, perhaps most notable (according to G&G) for "J. Habakuk Jephson's Statement" about the brig Mary Celeste -- about which, years later, people were still trying to figure out just how much was true and how much was fabricated. "When I wrote a yarn round this incident it was done irresponsibly and I never imagined it would be seriously analysed," said Doyle later.~This volume is in very good-plus condition (volume a bit askew, minor rubbing at the extremities, occasional light foxing, rear cover faintly marked). See Green & Gibson A5a&b.~This copy is inscribed by Doyle at the top of the title page, "With A. Conan Doyle's kindest regards | Nov 30th /92". As with other Doyle inscriptions we have seen in these early Longmans Green volumes, the inscription has "bled" a little, due to the paper and to the pen and ink Doyle used. Quite early -- just after Doyle had finally hit it big with the serial publication of THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES in The Strand Magazine. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
