        The Workingman's Paradise: an Australian Labour Novel. By John Miller.

      - Sydney, printed by Edwards Dunlop for the Worker Board of Trustees 1892. Octavo publisher's red cloth blocked in blind. Title browned by the endpaper as usual; there was no half title or blank between them. A rather good copy. First edition of this influental if fairly impenetrable socialist anarchist novel by the Messiah of the working class. The 1948 edition was on the shelf of every thoughtful Australian in the second half of the 20th century but I've only ever met one person who insisted he read the whole thing. He made many improbable claims. I think an earlier generation were more thorough, copies of this in good shape have always been hard to find. Lane's preface admits that it's a bit of an unresolved mess but those who want a happy end - like his wife - and those who want Nellie dead of a broken heart - like an unnamed friend - will have to wait for the next book. I dozed off so I'm not sure when the action switched from Nellie to Ned alone and don't know where we left her. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1892. Hardcover. Good. 8vo. 25 by 18 cm. 88 pp. of content, with a few blank numbered pages following. With 31 watercolored illustrations or vignettes, usually by the title to the song, but occasionally to the side.

The songs include "Nous en sommes", "L'Invalide de marseille", "Je suis gobe par maportiere", "Dans l'autre panier elles sont plus molles", "L'enfant des Remparts", "L'invalide Belge", "L'Anarchiste", "Brunes et Blondes", "Naples", "Salut aux hirondelles", "Le Gondolier", "Souviens-toi du cruel Vainqueur", "Veux-tu?"

        Uma or The Beach of Falesa [Rare True First American Appearance] [Island Nights' Entertainments]

      New York, 1892. First American edition. A Very Good set of six issues of the Illustrated News of the World containing the complete true first American edition of "Uma or The Beach of Falesa" by Robert Louis Stevenson, one of three tales later published together with The Bottle Imp, and The Isle of Voices in "Island Nights' Entertainments" (1893). "The Beach of Falesa" first appeared in print in six successive weekly issues of The Illustrated London News from July 2 through August 6, 1892 and appeared in these six successive weekly issues of The Illustrated World News, printed from the Original Blocks of the Illustrated London News from July 16 through August 20, 1892. Each issue in this set is in Very Good condition with all but one of the issues retaining its original green overwrap and one of which has come partially loose but which continues to hold and wherein there is a slight mispagination but in which all leaves are present. Notably, when the story was issued in book form the reference to Uma was dropped from the title and the tale was titled merely "The Beach of Falesa". Stevenson wrote the tale, along with others, after he relocated to Samoa for his health. The story is told by John Wiltshire, a British trader who has come to the fictional South Seas Island of Falesá where he is persuaded by a rival trader named Case to marry a local woman, Uma, in a ceremony which the islanders considered binding but which the Europeans did not. Soon after their "marriage", Wiltshire soon discovers that Uma has a taboo upon her and that the natives therefore will not do business with him, but instead trade with Case. An important story, Stevenson saw it as marking his departure from romanticism to realism (a departure criticized by many), writing to his friend Sidney Colvin, the English curator and literary and art critic as follows: "It is the first realistic South Seas story; I mean with real South Sea character and details of life. Everybody else that has tried, that I have seen, got carried away by the romance, and ended in a kind of sugar candy sham epic, and the whole effect was lost - there was not etching, no human grin, consequently no conviction. Now I have got the smell and look of the thing a good deal. You will know more about the South Seas after you have read my little tale than if you had read a library." The tale addressed British Colonialism and in it Stevenson sought to subvert the idea that British Colonialism in the South Seas was only beneficial to the native populations. Due to its candid treatment of the relationship between white traders and the natives, the Publisher bowdlerized the text. Copies of both the London World News and the Illustrated World News are, in our experience, exceedingly scarce and most copies likely were discarded after reading or have been otherwise been lost to time. We doubt that many examples of this true first printing of the tale, whether English or American and whether partial or complete, have survived. A RARE COMPLETE COPY OF THE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION OF THIS NOTABLE ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON TALE.

        A small collection, as below

      1892-1926, English Lake District 1892 - Grasmere village, and its dialect is native to the Lake District, home to Romantic Poets, including Wordsworth and Coleridge, and a number of their descendants, several of whom were poets themselves. William Wordsworth lived in Grasmere for many years, and is buried there. In his poem "Farewell", he calls the village "eminently fair" and the "loveliest spot that man hath ever found." The dialect spoken in Grasmere, which was in the historic county of Westmorland, though it is currently regarded as part of Cumbria, has been exemplified and preserved in what came to be called the Grasmere village dramas or the Grasmere dialect plays, which were produced and performed in the village for decades, starting in the 1890s. The undisputed founder of the series of Grasmere dialect dramas was Charlotte Maria Fletcher (1854-1926), a great granddaughter of Wordsworth’s great friend Eliza Fletcher. An early and evocative commentator on the Grasmere drama was Hardwicke Drummond Rawnsley (1851- 1920), the indefatigable writer and conservationist, who was one of the founders of the National Trust, and chaplain to King George V. Long a resident and champion of the Lake Country, Rawnsley wrote: "at the Grasmere play one can sit for a couple of hours and hear in its unashamed quaintness and racy humour the real folk-speech of the people." He claimed the instigators of the dramatic movement in Grasmere insisted the plays always "be in the home dialect". He singled out "Miss Charlotte Fletcher" as the "prime mover in this dramatic revival" (Rawnsley, Months at the Lakes, 1906, p. 11). 1) [Fletcher, Charlotte Maria.] The Dalesmen, or Lebberthwaite's Farm. A Melodrama in Four Acts. Written for the Grasmere Temperence Society, Ambleside: "Herald" Printing Works, Xmas, 1892. 8vo, pp. 21; original drab wrappers, stitching loosening. The extremely rare first play in the series of Grasmere dialect dramas. No copy in COPAC or OCLC. Eight pages of our copy have manuscript annotations or revisions, some extensively altering or expanding the dialogue. On the cover is the ownership inscription of Dorothy Kirkby, dated 1893. The online catalogue of the British Library attributes one of Charlotte Fletcher’s later plays, The Testing o’ John Trueman, to a pair of co-authors: Charlotte Maria Fletcher and Dorothy Kirkby. Almost certainlt this is the same Kirkby. The fact that Kirkby would collaborate with Fletcher after the time of The Dalesmen makes this a particularly interesting copy, and one wonders if the manuscript markings here are perhaps Kirkby’s or even Fletcher’s. 2) Fletcher, Charlotte Maria. Hester’s Troth and How She Kept It: A Village Drama by Charlotte M. Fletcher. With Song by H. D. Rawnsley [cover title], 8vo, pp. 53; original printed wrappers, n.p., n.d. [Ambleside?, 1903]. No copy is listed under the title Hester’s Troth in COPAC or OCLC. There is, however, something catalogued as Hester’s Tooth and How She Kept it [1903] in COPAC, which finds only a single copy, at Oxford. This copy of this play has brief, neat MS annotations on 36 pages, most being stage directions. 3) [program for:] Hester’s Troth: A Village Drama by Charlotte M. Fletcher on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, January 19th, 20th, and 21st, 1904, in the Grasmere Hall. 8vo, unpaged bifolium; printed on pink paper. This program, for the January 1904 performances of Hester’s Troth, is likely unrecorded No copy in COPAC or OCLC. The program includes text which is not in the book of the play itself: for instance, there is "A Prologue" in verse by "H. D. R." - undoubtedly Hardwicke Drummond Rawnsley (1851-1920), well-known as a contributor to and supporter of early Grasmere drama. For more on Rawnsley, see Oxford DNB and Wikipedia. For his own account of Grasmere dramas, see his essay "The Grasmere Dialect Play" in his memoir, Months at the Lakes (1906), pp. 7-17. Somewhat later, in 1918, Rawnsley would marry Eleanor Foster Simpson (1873- 1959), one of the chief writers of Grasmere dia [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Geometrische Komposition,

      - Siebdruck auf 70 x 50 cm Karton. Guter Zustand bis auf eine Bereibung links neben der Künstlermonogrammierung. "Adolf Richard Fleischmann (* 18. März 1892 in Esslingen am Neckar; † 28. Januar 1968 in Stuttgart) war ein deutscher Maler. Sein Spätwerk wird in der Nähe des Konstruktivismus eingeordnet. Er gilt als Vorläufer der Op-Art. Fleischmann wurde als drittes Kind des Kaufmanns Wilhelm Adolf Fleischmann und seiner Ehefrau Paulina Maria am 18. März 1892 in Esslingen geboren. Nach dem Abitur studierte er ab 1908 an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Stuttgart und wechselte 1911 an die Königliche Kunstakademie. Hier lernte er unter anderem bei Adolf Hölzel und Robert Poetzelberger. Nach kurzer Tätigkeit als angestellter Zeichner und Maler beim Städtischen Ausstellungsamt für Gesundheitspflege, Stuttgart, sowie an der Werkstätte für graphische Kunst unter Paul Hahn wurde Fleischmann 1914 zum Kriegsdienst eingezogen. Im Folgejahr wurde er an der Ostfront so schwer verwundet, dass er aus dem Wehrdienst entlassen wurde. Vorübergehend entwarf er Buchumschläge bei der Deutschen Verlags-Anstalt und für die J. B. Metzler’sche Verlagsbuchhandlung, beide in Stuttgart. Durch Fürsprache seiner Halbschwester Lotte Luise Volger, die als Moulageuse am Kantonsspital Zürich beschäftigt war, erhielt er 1917 dort ebenfalls eine Anstellung. Fleischmann arbeitete bis Juli 1928 (mit Unterbrechungen) als wissenschaftlicher Zeichner und Moulageur in Zürich. Viele der von ihm damals hergestellten Moulagen sind erhalten geblieben und im Universitätsspital Zürich zu besichtigen. 1921 nahm Fleischmann an der Ausstellung der Münchener „Neue Sezession" teil. Hier wurde er besonders von Franz Marc und weiteren Expressionisten angeregt. In der Folge malte er stark expressionistische Gemälde. Es folgten Arbeitsaufenthalte in Italien, Spanien, der Schweiz, Paris, aber auch in Deutschland (Berlin und Hamburg). Aus dem Jahr 1925 stammt Fleischmanns erstes erhaltenes, vom Kubismus nicht unbeeinflusstes abstraktes Gemälde. 1928 nahm er an den „Juryfreien"-Ausstellungen in Stuttgart und Berlin sowie erneut an der „Neuen Sezession", München, teil. 1933 bis 1936 verbrachte er lange Zeit auf Mallorca und in Paris. In den Jahren 1936 bis 1938 reiste er in Begleitung seiner Geliebten Bertha Loof durch Italien und hielt sich vor allem auf Ischia auf. Im Juli 1938 wurde sein Sohn Dieter Loof geboren, der im Alter von etwa vier Jahren starb. Da er mittlerweile nur noch abstrakt malte, entzog er sich einer möglichen Auseinandersetzung mit den nationalsozialistischen Machthabern durch Übersiedlung nach Frankreich. In Paris schloss er sich der Gruppe l’Équipe an. Dadurch begegnete er prägenden Künstlern wie Robert Delaunay und Albert Gleizes. Dort unterstützte er die Résistance gegen die deutsche Besatzungsmacht. Bis Ende des Krieges lebte er in verschiedenen Orten Südfrankreichs, vor allem in Graulhet/Tarn. Mehrfach wurde er interniert, so im Lager „Les Milles" bei Aix-en-Provence, aus dem es ihm im Oktober 1940 zu fliehen gelang. Ende 1944 kehrte Adolf Fleischmann aus seinem südfranzösischen Versteck zurück in das befreite Paris, wo er in seinem völlig verwüsteten Atelier nur noch die Reste seiner Bilder, die Arbeit vieler Jahre, vorfand. A.F. wörtlich: „ich erlebte einen Nervenzusammenbruch". Mit Hilfe seiner französischen Freunde konnte er jedoch schon bald seine künstlerische Arbeit wieder aufnehmen, und bis zu seiner Ausreise in die USA 1952 sich auch an Ausstellungen in Paris beteiligen. A.F. unterzeichnete jene, in der frühen Nachkriegszeit entstandenen Arbeiten unter dem Druck einer noch heftigen Deutschfeindlichkeit mit dem Pseudonym Richard, seinem zweiten Vornamen. In dem Katalog der Realitéts Nouvelles Nr.1, 1947 ist ein Bild von A.F. zu sehen, das hier einem Maler Richard zugeschrieben wird. A.F. hat das Pseudonym Richard in den USA nicht weiter verwandt [1]. Zu Ende des Krieges und in den ersten Nachkriegsjahren hatte Fleischmann erstmals eine kurze „geometrische Phase" [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Sein erster Aufenthalt in Italien war 1874, ein zweiter 1880. 1876 zog er nach Frankfurt am Main. Nach sehr zögerlich einsetzendem Erfolg – seinen ersten größeren Auftrag hatte er 1882, 1890 seine erste erfolgreiche Sonderausstellung in München – führte seine steigende Bekanntheit 1898 zur Professur an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie und 1899 zum Direktorat der dortigen Kunsthalle.

        Uma or The Beach of Falesa [Rare True First American Appearance] [Island Nights' Entertainments]

      New York, 1892. First American edition. A Very Good set of six issues of the Illustrated News of the World containing the complete true first American edition of "Uma or The Beach of Falesa" by Robert Louis Stevenson, one of three tales later published together with The Bottle Imp, and The Isle of Voices in "Island Nights' Entertainments" (1893). "The Beach of Falesa" first appeared in print in six successive weekly issues of The Illustrated London News from July 2 through August 6, 1892 and appeared in these six successive weekly issues of The Illustrated World News, printed from the Original Blocks of the Illustrated London News from July 16 through August 20, 1892. Each issue in this set is in Very Good condition with all but one of the issues retaining its original green overwrap and one of which has come partially loose but which continues to hold and wherein there is a slight mispagination but in which all leaves are present. Notably, when the story was issued in book form the reference to Uma was dropped from the title and the tale was titled merely "The Beach of Falesa". Stevenson wrote the tale, along with others, after he relocated to Samoa for his health. The story is told by John Wiltshire, a British trader who has come to the fictional South Seas Island of Falesá where he is persuaded by a rival trader named Case to marry a local woman, Uma, in a ceremony which the islanders considered binding but which the Europeans did not. Soon after their "marriage", Wiltshire soon discovers that Uma has a taboo upon her and that the natives therefore will not do business with him, but instead trade with Case. An important story, Stevenson saw it as marking his departure from romanticism to realism (a departure criticized by many), writing to his friend Sidney Colvin, the English curator and literary and art critic as follows: "It is the first realistic South Seas story; I mean with real South Sea character and details of life. Everybody else that has tried, that I have seen, got carried away by the romance, and ended in a kind of sugar candy sham epic, and the whole effect was lost - there was not etching, no human grin, consequently no conviction. Now I have got the smell and look of the thing a good deal. You will know more about the South Seas after you have read my little tale than if you had read a library." The tale addressed British Colonialism and in it Stevenson sought to subvert the idea that British Colonialism in the South Seas was only beneficial to the native populations. Due to its candid treatment of the relationship between white traders and the natives, the Publisher bowdlerized the text. Copies of both the London World News and the Illustrated World News are, in our experience, exceedingly scarce and most copies likely were discarded after reading or have been otherwise been lost to time. We doubt that many examples of this true first printing of the tale, whether English or American and whether partial or complete, have survived. A RARE COMPLETE COPY OF THE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION OF THIS NOTABLE ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON TALE.

Edison's Machine Works, transferred to Schenectady in 1886, is the Edison plant this album photographically documents, and does so in the year Edison's own Edison General Electric Company merged with Thomson-Houston, becoming the General Electric Co. we know today, and, as a by-product, effectively removing Edison from the electrical business.  OCLC records 3 institutional holdings.
