He began a career in journalism in 1874 in the editorial department of the Independent, a weekly Congregational journal with a strong anti-slavery bias that had been founded by his father. The following year he became its foreign correspondent, and from 1896 to 1912 its publisher and proprietor. After retiring from journalism, Bowen involved himself with historical research, genealogy, and world travel. His interests ranged from the George Washington Centennial Celebration (1889), to the the establishment of the American Historical Association, the Celebration of the 400 Anniversary of the Discovery of America,the 1892 World's Fair, the American Antiquarian Society, the Republican Party, the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, and the Manhattan Congregational Church.

An important technical photographic journal of the time published under the supervision of Hermann Wilhelm Vogel (1834 - 1898), one of the most important photographic chemists of the 19th century. Several text illustrations including cameras and related apparatus and devices. Contains numerous illustrations including actual photographs (all tipped to plate), photogravures, photo-lithographs, collotypes and half-tones. This issue contains an unusual color halftone plate which is called a "Chromotypie." Major plates are: "Winterlandschaft aus dem Rabenaueer Grunde bei Dresden" photograph, "Aufnahme aus dem K. Schauspielhause zu Berlin bei Magnesium-Blitz-Lich" photograph, "Von Anthropologen-Kongress in Danzig, 1891" photograph, "Portratstudie" photograph, "Il Lago del Mandrome" photograph, "Svartidden-Gletscher in Norwegen" photograph, "Kostumstudie" photograph,"I Fulmini di Brenta" photograph, "Chromotypie" color halftone printed directly on the page and tissue guard protected, "Portratstudie" photogravure, "Am Landwehrkanal in Thiergarten zu Berlin" photogravure, "Monentaufnahme aus Capri" photogravure, "Lm Thiegarten" photogravure, "Portratstudie" collotype, "Auf dem Lande" collotype, "Mandolinata" photo-lithograph, "Mai" photo-lithograph, "Moment-Aufnahmen aus der Kreisstadt Jampol in Podolien, Sud-Russland" photo-lithograph, "Portratstudie" photo-lithograph and "Strandszene aus Helgoland" photo-lithograph.

The book is in very good condition. The head and foot of the spine and the leather tips are heavily worn. Internally a few lines and other notations but otherwise clean. Binding is tight. One photograph is 1/2 loose from the linen strip attaching the plate to the binding. A couple of pages have tears but none into the text area. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lucy, Francis and Cousin Bill. A novel in three Volumes .

      London: Eden, Remington & Co. . 1892 - 3 vols., 8vo., with the half-titles; original bright red cloth, boldly decorated and lettered in black on cover, spines lettered in gilt; minimal, uniform fading to spines, otherwise a fine copy.First edition. The preliminary leaves in each volume, though clearly correct, are not as called for in Wolff and the binding is more elaborate than his maroon coarse morocco cloth blocked in blind. Here there are only two preliminary leaves (half-title and title page) in each volume; Woolf, however, specifies pp. [x], [vi], and [vi]. Presumably his copy was a later issue, however, as a review of the novel is inserted into the prelims of volume I.'Verdant, unsuspicious' Lucy Fairplay – a young woman whose physical beauty is matched only by her piety and moral fortitude – emerges from a genteel yet impoverished orphan's childhood, only to be driven by the 'remoseless hands of fate' through two further volumes of frustrated hopes and adversity before being reunited with Francis Beaumont, the lover of her youth. The tale is set in Scotland in the years 1847-78, with particular attention to the Crimean War. The preface claims it is all true. Two copies only on OCLC; Wolff 7252.

[4], 317, [1, printer’s imprint], [2, blank] pp. With 104 illustrations by Sidney Paget in the text. Provenance: Detective story writers "Ellery Queen" (Manfred Lee) and "Barnaby Ross" (Frederic Dannay) names in ink on half-title. Original light blue cloth over beveled boards. Front cover and spine blocked and lettered in gilt and black. All edges gilt. Gray flower and leaf endpapers. Small ink initials to front free endpaper. Front hinge professionally and invisibly repaired, back hinge starting but firm. A slight bit of shelf-wear to top and bottom of the spine. Some light foxing to a few preliminary and final pages. Otherwise a near fine copy, exceptionally clean and bright. Housed in a tan cloth clamshell. "Rarely has a character so quickly established itself on the popular imagination as did Sherlock Holmes in the latter half of 1891." (Green & Gibson). "An avid reader of detective fiction since childhood, Dannay often discussed with Lee the possibility that they should write their own novel in the style of the erudite mystery writer, S. S. Van Dine. In 1928, using the name Ellery Queen, the two entered McClure's magazine novel-writing contest and, to their surprise, won. Before the work came to print, however, and before Dannay and Lee received their $7,500 prize money, the magazine folded. Fortunately the cosponsor of the competition, publisher Frederick A. Stokes, stepped in and in 1929 published The Roman Hat Mystery, which promptly sold 8,000 copies and thereby launched both the character and the "author" Ellery Queen." (American National Biography).

        The Adventure of Silver Blaze

      Strand Magazine 1892 - Quite possible the only surviving copy of the rare HARDCOVER edition of this historic publication, and possibly, of any single issue of the Strand Magazine containing a Sherlock Holmes story. It is the December, 1892 issue of the Strand Magazine, which contained the Sherlock Holmes story The Adventure of Silver Blaze. The Silver Blaze is certainly the most famous story ever written about a race horse, and one of the greatest Sherlock Holmes stories. In this story, Holmes utters the infamous line referring to "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time," to which the Scotland Yard detective objects, "The dog did nothing in the night-time." And Holmes responds: "That was the curious incident." This is a special hardcover edition of the single issue, with a gold stamp marking the issue with a gold crown and the words "Royal Edition." In addition, the volume in inscribed by the author of the first article. Very good in cloth covers, comes in a custom-made slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Note: Vambery, a friend of Bram Stoker's, is said to have been the model for Van Helsing, the vampire hunter in "Dracula." "Vámbéry was especially attracted by the literature and culture of the Ottoman Empire including Turkey. By the age of twenty, Vámbéry had learned enough Ottoman Turkish to enable him to go, through the assistance of Baron Joseph Eötvös, to Constantinople and establish himself as a private tutor of European languages. He became a tutor in the house of Pasha Huseyin Daim, and, under the influence of his friend and instructor, Ahmet Efendi, became a full Osmanli, serving as secretary to Fuat Pasha. About this time he was elected a corresponding member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in recognition of his translations of Ottoman historians. After spending about a year in Constantinople, he published a Turkish-German dictionary in 1858. Later, he also published various other linguistic works. He also learned some twenty other Ottoman languages and dialects. Returning to Budapest in 1861, he received a stipend of a thousand florins from the academy, and in the autumn of the same year, disguised as a Sunnite dervish, and under the name of Reshit Efendi, he set out from Constantinople. His route lay from Trebizond on the Black Sea to Tehran in Persia, where he joined a band of pilgrims returning from Mecca, spending several months with them traveling across Central Iran (Tabriz, Zanjan, and Kazvin). He then went to Shiraz, through Ispahan, and in June, 1863, he reached Khiva (Central Asia). Throughout this time, he succeeded in maintaining his disguise as "Reshit Efendi," so that upon his arrival at Khiva he managed to keep up appearances during interviews with the local khan. Together with his band of travelers, he then crossed Bokhara and arrived at Samarkand. Initially, he aroused the suspicions of the local ruler, who kept him in an audience for a full half-hour. Vámbéry managed to maintain his pretences, and left the audience laden with gifts. Upon leaving Samarkand, Vámbéry began making his way back to Constantinople, traveling by way of Herat. There he took leave of the band of dervishes and joined a caravan to Tehran, and from there, via Trebizond and Erzerum, to Constantinople, arriving there in March 1864. This was the first journey of its kind undertaken by a Western European; and since it was necessary to avoid suspicion, Vámbéry could not take even fragmentary notes, except by stealth. He returned to Europe in 1864. That following June, he paid a visit to London, where he was treated as a celebrity because of his daring adventures and knowledge of languages. That same year, he published his Travels in Central Asia, based on the few, furtive notes he was able to make while traveling with the dervishes. Returning to Hungary, Vámbéry was appointed professor of Oriental languages at the University of Budapest in 1865, retiring in 1905" (Wikipedia).

Our offering is a bound copy of volume III of The Strand Magazine, containing the first appearance in print of the remaining six of the Sherlock Holmes "adventure" stories (see G&G, pp. 54-58).
