        Outing Magazine: Volumes 21-25 (October 1892 -- March 1895)

      New York: The Outing Company Limited. 1892-1895. Five bound volumes. Quartos. Three-quarter morocco with textured maroon boards, raised bands, and gilt spine lettering. About near fine, with rubbing at the extremities and some offsetting to the endpapers. The bound volumes contain 30 issues of this sporting magazine which began publication in 1882 as the Wheelman before changing its name to Outing and the Wheelman: An Illustrated Monthly Magazine of Recreation, then simply Outing until it ceased publication in 1923. The magazine published a range of fiction and nonfiction related to the sporting life, covering many popular activities of the day such as hunting, fishing, equestrian, and boating, as well as emerging sports such as ice hockey, football, and aeronautics, often with accompanying photographs and illustrations. These volumes are no different with scores of vintage photographs of late 19th Century football teams and three early illustrations from Frederic Remington. Football in particular was rapidly gaining popularity at colleges across the country despite -- or perhaps because of -- its violent nature. Included within these pages are more than half a dozen articles by Walter Camp, the father of American football. While most feature the Ivy League teams of Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and others, one article focuses solely on West Coast teams including Stanford and the University of California. An interesting window into American sporting life at the turn of the century and the early development of football. .

        Rare Original Photograph of O'Neill as a boy, unsigned, oblong 8vo, with full signature on a small 12mo visiting card

      - The image shows the future playwright in full length profile, sitting on a rock, with pad and pencil as if he is about to sketch or write. He sits near a lake with a house visible at the lake's edge. The photo has been cropped at the top. On verso, docketed in pencil, are notations for further cutting of the image to remove unwanted margins from the central focus of a charming portrait of O'Neill as a boy. The docketing reads, "Eugene O'Neill 25 years ago." The photographer's stamp shows upside down at the top edge indicating to whom credit should be given when reproductions would be made. The photographer is Nickolas Muray (1892-1965) who had made other images of O'Neill as an adult. On the black bordered visiting card, O'Neill has crossed out his printed name and written his full name below. O'Neill's capacity for and commitment to work were staggering. Between 1920 and 1943 he completed 20 long plays and a number of shorter ones. His plays were among the first to include dialogue in American vernacular and involve characters on the fringes of society who ultimately slide into disillusionment and despair. O'Neill wrote one well-known comedy, "Ah, Wilderness!".

        Deacon Brodie or The Double Life: A Melodrama in Five Acts and Eight Tableaux

      T. and A. Constable Edinburgh University Press. Second edition, revised, unpublished.. Wrappers a little soiled and worn; very good copy.. On the front wrapper is printed ?TO BE RETURNED / to W. E. Henley / Merton Place / Chiswick/ London.? Beinecke 59; NCBEL III, 1005. 8vo, original printed wrappers, 88 pages. The first two editions of Deacon Brodie were printed for private circulation only. It was not until 1892 that it was published for public distribution by David Nutt, together with two other plays written in collaboration by Henley and Stevenson. Deacon Brodie, an early work by both authors (it preceded Henley?s first book), is based on the story of Deacon William Brodie (1741-1788), an Edinburgh Town Councilman and respected member of the community who led a double life - one of public service and another of crime. Brodie's real double life was the inspiration for the fictional Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

      London: Reeves & Turner, 1892. Third Edition with the Notes of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley n. Hardcover. 184 x 127 mm (7 1/4 x 5"). Two volumes. Edited by H. Buxton Forman. Third Edition with the Notes of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. PARTICULARLY FINE DARK BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO, RICHLY GILT, BY SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE, covers with central gilt panel formed by multiple plain and decorative rolls, with cornerpiece clusters of three inlaid lavender morocco pansies, front boards with central inlaid cerulean morocco medallion stamped with the poet's gilt monogram, rear boards with lavender morocco medallion stamped with a gilt pansy within the quote "Pansies let my flowers be" (from "Remembrance"); raised bands, spine compartments gilt in a latticed pattern, DOUBLURES OF SKY BLUE MOROCCO, ONE OF THESE (at the front of the first volume) FEATURING AN IVORY MINIATURE UNDER GLASS OF SHELLEY FRAMED BY A LAUREL WREATH SET WITH SIX SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES, this portrait surrounded by a pointillé field punctuated by foliate sprays terminating in 46 white flowers, the other three doublures with rows of gilt floral and foliate stamps and a trio of inlaid white blossoms in each corner (the bindings with a total of 132 large and small floral inlays), ivory moiré silk endleaves, all edges gilt and delicately gauffered. In a (rather worn) felt-lined folding cloth box. Frontispiece in each volume, vignette title pages. A VIRTUALLY FLAWLESS SET IN A LUSCIOUS BINDING. This is a lovely and elegant set--with doublures of especially beautiful design--that provides an appropriate morocco covering for Shelley's poetical works, a body of literature graced with a lyricism Day asserts is "unmatched elsewhere in English verse in its ethereal, ideal beauty." While the notes of Shelley's wife, appended here, have aroused considerable denigration (she is accused, among other things, of making her husband's verse less political than it actually was), her editorial work is nevertheless professional and has remained an essential source for the study of Shelley's work. As Betty T. Bennett explains, "biographers and critics agree that Mary Shelley's commitment to bring [her husband] the notice she believed his works merited was the single, major force that established Shelley's reputation during a period when he almost certainly would have faded from public view." According to DNB, our editor, Henry (Harry) Buxton Forman (1842-1917) "channelled a general enthusiasm into a minute study of textual details, for which his careful and exacting temperament was ideally suited. His patient application produced impressive editions of Shelley," who was, along with Keats, his main literary interest. Our miniature seems to be a general copy of the portrait of Shelley executed in 1819 by Amelia Curran (d. 1847). Now hanging in England's National Portrait Gallery, it is one of very few contemporaneous likenesses of Shelley and serves as the chief source today for Shelley's countenance. One will find Cosway-style miniatures as good as the one here, but it would not be possible to find really lovely volumes like these in better condition.

        Le Cahier Jaune. Poems.

      Eton: Privately Printed, 1892 - Octavo. Original yellow card wrappers printed in black. Generally rubbed and soiled, some loss to corners and spine, marks to early and late leaves but substantially clean within. A good copy. First edition of Benson's first collection of poems; number 198 of a numbered 200 copies, this one signed by the author on the title page. A. C. Benson (1862–1925) was the son of Edward White Benson, Archbishop of Canterbury, and the brother of talented intellectuals such as the writer E. F. Benson and Egyptologist Margaret Benson. After graduating from Cambridge Benson returned to Eton (publishing this collection in the year that he was made housemaster); he went on to serve as headmaster for 18 years. Though successful as an administrator he found little joy in the routine of college life and devoted his spare time to a literary career spanning more than 60 publications. These included a substantial biography of his father, poetry, essays, the editing of the letters of Queen Victoria, and a series of sentimental, middlebrow novels that earned him rather more cash than literary laurels. In 1904 Benson became a fellow at Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he served as Master for the last ten years of his life. Perhaps disappointingly, this collection does not contain any such secret licentiousness as one might hope to find in other "yellow books" of the period, the archetype of which is of course Huysman's A Rebors. An emotionally and sexually distant man, Benson never married or had affairs with either sex. Instead, he devoted himself to academic institutions and the intellectual and moral development of the young men in his charge. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Der Personalakt umfasst alle Unterlagen zu Person und Dienstverhältnis, Dienstzeit etc. Interessant sind neben zwei von Weinheber eh. unterfertigten Diensteiden, auch Aufzeichnungen über 'Belobungen und Strafen' sowie seine 'Krankheitsabsenzen'. So sind zum Beispiel eine "Verwarnung .. wegen höchst ungehörigen Benehmens während der Dienststunden in einem Amtsraume", ein 16-tägiger Krankenstand wegen "schwerer melanch. Depressionszustände" sowie mehrmalig Fehltage wegen "Nervenschwäche" verzeichnet. Darüber hinaus sind Dienst- u. Qualifikationstabellen sowie Unterlagen über seine Besoldung enthalten.

Another photo shows a view over the town of "Lindschau" (I-nin-tschou) (= Jingzhou?). Inscribed by the author to the botanist Prof. Julius Wiesner.

        Proof portrait wood engraving of Harriet Beecher Stowe, and artist's Autograph Letter, signed concerning it, with another engraving of unidentified man

      n.p, 1892. (STOWE, HARRIET BEECHER) Stowe image 9-1/2 x 7-1/4 inches, 14 x 11 inches overall. . Stowe engraving with almost imperceptible tear without loss, others fine. Scribner's Magazine, February 1895, pp. 186-88 . Gustav Kruell (1843-1907) was born in Germany and established himself as an engraver in Stuttgart. He came to the US in 1873, and quickly obtained commissions from the leading illustrated periodicals. He fell under the artistic influence of the famed engraver W.J. Linton, with the result that his portraits took on a clarity and liveliness uncommon in his day. His most famous work is probably the Lincoln of 1891; the following year he produced the superb Stowe portrait offered here (Stowe died in 1896). His Autograph Letter, signed, written from East Orange, NJ to J.R. Mitchel conveying the proof, reads, "Your favor enclosing check if $15.00 for Portrait of Beecher Stowe came to me today--I send the same by express with this. I hope the picture will not disappoint you for I sought for no effect but tried to make every one see into this great woman who could [be?] so calm in a time of greatest excitements as only a true woman can do. Very truly yours, G. Kruell." Also included is a fine 5 x 7 proof portrait of an unidentified man--both it and the Stowe portrait are signed in the plate and in pencil below.
