        Celtic Fairy Tales

      London: David Nutt,, 1892. Large octavo. Original cream-coloured boards, spine and front cover lettered in brown, top edges gilt, untrimmed. Housed in a custom made marbled paper slipcase. Title page printed in red & black, frontispiece and 7 plates in two states, 38 illustrations in the text, 26 decorated initials, by John D. Batten. Spine lightly toned. An exceptional copy. First and limited edition, one of 125 numbered large paper copies signed by the publisher and printed on Japanese vellum. Joseph Jacobs (1854-1916), historian and folklorist, produced a number of fairy tale books in the 90s, following his marriage and the birth of three children: "perhaps it was the presence of young children that encouraged the scholarly Jacobs to turn his attention to the world of folklore and fairy tales" (ODNB). The illustrations are by John D. Batten (1860-1932), "probably the best of that group of illustrators who took mythology as the keynote for their work" (Simon Houfe, The Dictionary of 19th Century British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists, 1998, p. 56).

        Autograph letter signed in full to arts administrator Richard Sternfeld

      Three pages of a bifolium. 8vo (175 x 110 mm.). Dated Döbling [now part of Vienna], November 4, 1892. In black ink. In German (with translation). Wolf asks Sternfeld (who is not named in the letter but may be identified by circumstantial evidence) about the "popular concerts" series in Berlin, which Sternfeld had suggested as a venue for showcasing Wolf's music. He doubts whether the setting of these concerts was suited to the purpose: "Would you please, most esteemed [Sir], be so kind as to reveal to me the character of the so-called popular concerts in Berlin?... Are your popular concerts such at which [the audience] is eating, drinking, and smoking? Of course such concerts would prohibit the performance of vocal music, and when you proposed a popular concert to me, you intended to perform my instrumental works only. In such a case a popular concert would not serve me well because, as you know, my specialty is vocal music. However, should it be otherwise and should the said concerts also include vocal music then I would of course prefer such a popular concert to one at the Singakademie, if only to save money. It also would appear that these popular concerts are held in the hall of the Philharmonic, which should not be underestimated." Creased at horizontal fold; short split to lower portion of central fold. . "[Wolf] intensified the expressive vocabulary of the lied by means of extended tonality and post-Wagnerian declamation while retaining the defining elements of the song tradition he had inherited from Schubert and Schumann. Profoundly responsive to poetry, he incorporated detailed readings of his chosen poems in the compositional decisions he made about every aspect of song: harmonic nuances, tonal form, melodic design, vocal declamation, pianistic texture, the relationship of voice to piano, etc. Seeking an art ‘written with bloodÂ’, he went below the surface of poetry – even where his musical purposes were inevitably distinct from the poet's – in order to recreate it in music of remarkable intensity, written, as he once proclaimed, for epicures, not amateurs." Eric Sams and Susan Youens in Grove Music Online. Richard Sternfeld (1858-1924) was a prominent arts administrator in Berlin at the time. A board member of the Wagner-Verein, he organized several performances of Wolf's works. The Berlin concert Wolf was planning at the time finally took place on January 8, 1894—but not as a “popular” concert. Siegfried Ochs, director of the Philharmonischer Chor, conducted some of WolfÂ’s choral-orchestral works.

        Photo Albums of Frederick William Huverstuhl

      Illinois, 1892-1925. Hardcover. Very Good+. Two volumes: (1) Cloth-backed heavy boards (oblong, approx. 13 x 9 inches); with 10 heavy cardstock leaves, with mounted sepia albumen photographs ranging in size from 4-by-6 to 8-by-6 inches. 12 photographs in all, neatly labelled by hand in the margins. With additional photographs laid-in. Binding a bit utilitarian; or, it ain't pretty, but it's sure sturdy. Boards lightly soiled, bumped along the edges. (2) Cloth-backed marbled paper boards (oblong, approx. 11 x 8 inches); 23 grey heavy cardstock leaves, each with b/w and sepia photographs (albumen prints, silver gelatin prints) mounted on the recto. Photographs are in a range of sizes, many accompanied by handwritten labels -- 45 photographs total, and all are in excellent condition. Huverstuhl's signature on front paste-down, dated 1865, Chicago. Boards a little bumped and scuffed. A nice portrait of a family, as well as a portrait of Joliet and Peoria, Illinois. Frederick William Huverstuhl (b. Prussia/Germany 1847 - d. 1928, Joliet, IL) was a marble cutter by trade, and the images presented here as so nicely composed, exposed, and printed, that one wonders if photography was another of his artistic pursuits. These albums offer images of his art work and his family, as well as street scenes and landscapes -- including numerous shots of the 1902 Joliet flood and the Flood Control Channel construction in Lockport, IL -- and images from the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. The construction of the flood control channel was of particular interest to Huverstuhl, who took numerous pictures of the excavation, the work site, and the cranes dominating the landscape.

        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]

        French Manuscript Collection of Song Lyrics and Watercolored Illustrations and Vignettes

      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 were generally well-known songs; the watercolors are painted directly onto the pages. Occasionally there is musical notation, but most songs are given with only the lyrics, which are written in a very neat, attractive hand. 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?"

Several of the entries in the back are partial, without the title or image. Some of the images are not truly original, copied or adapted from published material.

        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]
