        Collection of Ten Photographs from Mooney's Pioneering Investigations of the Ghost Dance and Other Native American Circle Dances

      This extremely rare and important collection documents the famous Ghost Dance and related circle dances soon after the Wounded Knee Massacre. These dramatic photographs, taken by the celebrated James Mooney, show these dances as they were taking place. Viewing the Ghost Dance among the Lakota as a threat, the U.S. Army had killed Sitting Bull while arresting him and soon thereafter killed Spotted Elk and perhaps 150 of his followers at Wounded Knee. Thus these Ghost Dance photographs represent original documentary evidence of a major phenomenon in the history of the American West. These photographs were taken by James Mooney (1861-1921), an anthropologist with the Bureau of American Ethnology. He left Washington in late 1890 to investigate the potentially incendiary Ghost Dance movement. In the winter of 1891 Mooney lived among the Cheyenne, Arapaho, Comanche, Wichita, and other Native Americans in Native American territory as they performed the Ghost Dance ritual, hoping to usher in the American Indian millennium. Mooney reported, "I am so far in with the medicine men, that they have invited me to take part in the dance, although they order any white man away from the grounds" (Moses, The Indian Man: A Biography of James Mooney). Late in 1891, Mooney visited the Native Americans at Pine Ridge, South Dakota, near the site of the Wounded Knee massacre. Finding the Sioux understandably reluctant to discuss the religion, Mooney then crossed the Rockies to locate and interview the founder of the movement, Wovoka in Nevada. During this meeting, the first time that a white man had interviewed Wovoka about his movement, the mystic consented to be photographed. "James Mooney was called 'The Indian Man' not because he dressed like one, nor because he thought American Indian societies were superior to his own, but rather from his knowledge, unsurpassed for its breadth and depth, of a few Indian societies. ... His works are used constantly today in both history and anthropology. They have achieved a timelessness ..." (Moses). One of the few whites to witness and take part in the Ghost Dance, Mooney became the greatest scholar of the ritual and the events which cascaded from this cultural collision. Mooney's Ghost Dance photographs are of the very greatest rarity in the market. We cannot trace any other examples appearing for sale. Ten albumen photographs (4 x 6 in. and 4 ¼ x 7 ½ in.) on original mounts, some with gold bevel. Most faded, light wear and soiling. Most of the photographs bear on the mount recto a pencil caption number likely in Mooney's hand. Extremely rare.

        The Spirit Lamp.

      Oxford: for the proprietors by James Thornton,, May 1892 – June 1893. An Oxford Magazine without News. [Continued as: An Aesthetic Literary and Critical Magazine.] 15 volumes, octavo. Original wrappers (vol. I, nos. 1–6 and vol. II, no. 1 beige wrappers printed in black; vol. II, nos. 2–4 and vol. III, nos. 1–3 white wrappers printed in blue with Magdalen tower illustration; vol. IV, nos. 1–2 blue wrappers printed in black). Vol. II, no. 1 in the first state with no "Second Edition" to front wrapper (no priority: "only one impression was actually printed" – Mason). Housed in a green morocco-backed bookform slipcase with the numbers held in two cloth chemises. A few of the early numbers with some early repair to wrappers, some with recent light repair; otherwise general chipping to the extremities of the brittle first few numbers, the white wrappered numbers in much better condition though with some staples rusted, and the blue wrappered volumes in near-fine condition but for some small chips to the wrapper edges. Nonetheless an extraordinary survival in very good condition overall, with some numbers uncut. First edition, all published, in original wrappers, an extremely rare complete set. The Spirit Lamp, the Oxford "aesthetic" literary magazine edited by Lord Alfred Douglas, became over four terms the crucible of a radical Uranian culture, and was decried as an "unholy, decadent academy" in rival Oxford magazine The Ephemeral. The Spirit Lamp printed unguardedly homosexual poems by Oscar Wilde, then Douglas's lover, as well as pieces by other such notable decadents as Lionel Johnson, John Addington Symonds, Robert Ross, Max Beerbohm, Pierre Louÿs, and many others. The first volume of the magazine was issued in six numbers during Trinity term 1892, under the editorship of Sandys Watson. It was set up as "An Oxford Magazine Without News", mischievous and facetious, with articles and satirical poems published anonymously or initialled. To give a flavour: in one early number a piece entitled "Pneumatolampadomastix" imagines a board of authorities condemning the magazine, followed by a Mr Oscar Wilde contributing: "The writers are quite unintelligible, and will consequently never be found out", and the scene closed by Mr George Meredith: "Foolish Young Fellows!" The second volume was published in four numbers during Michaelmas term 1892, now adopting illustrated wrappers and beginning to print the identities of its contributors. Lord Alfred Douglas's first contribution was printed in the third number, in an extraordinarily impertinent essay on the dullness of dons: "Dons occupy in the University the same position as moral laws occupy in the Universe; that is why they are so tedious... Perhaps, after all, the real reason why Dons are so uninteresting, is that they stand out against a background of such intense interest and beauty that they appear darker and duller than they really are. However that may be, they remain the one dull thing in Oxford, the one commonplace in the romance of an exquisite life, the one harsh discord in the harmony of a perfect music. Let us forgive them, but forget that they exist". Perhaps due to the popularity of the piece, or the fact that Douglas had some literary cachet for being then in the full swing of an affair with the famous Wilde (they had met in 1891, introduced by Lionel Johnson, and had summered together in 1892, during which Wilde was writing A Woman of No Importance), Watson surrendered the ownership and editorship of The Spirit Lamp to Douglas. Thus, from the following number (vol II, no. 4) right through its two subsequent volumes (vol. III, nos. 1–3: 3 February–10 March 1893, Hilary term; and vol. IV, nos. 1–2, May–June 1893, Trinity term), Douglas began to include radical new content. The first number under Douglas's editorship was introduced by "The New Remorse", a powerful poem of homosexual awakening by Wilde which he, besotted, had written out for Douglas shortly after they had met: "Who cometh in dyed garments from the South? / It is thy new-found Lord, and he shall kiss / The yet unravished roses of thy mouth, / And I shall weep, and worship, as before". Douglas assumed that the poem had been written for him, though it had in fact been published four years earlier under the title "Un amant de nos jours". Douglas's printing of it on the front of his first editorial issue nonetheless signposted the magazine's new Uranian direction. Neil McKenna, in The Secret Life of Oscar Wilde, comments on the revolutionary aims and implications of the magazine under Douglas's editorship: "The Spirit Lamp advertised itself as a magazine for 'all who are interested in modern life and the new culture'. The 'new culture' was code for the new Uranian culture which Bosie, Oscar and many others wanted to see established... The primary aim was reform of the laws against gross indecency and sodomy, followed by a wish to win a winder social acceptance for men who loved men" (McKenna, p. 266). Wilde's other contributions in The Spirit Lamp were two prose-poem fantasies, first published here, "The House of Judgement" and "The Disciple", which were later reprinted in "Poems in Prose" in the Fortnightly Review, July 1894. Other notable contributions include Douglas's review in strident defence of Wilde's French Salomé as "a perfect work of art", and the first appearance of the famous French translation of one of Wilde's love letters to Douglas by Pierre Louÿs (to whom Salomé had been dedicated): "Hyacinthe adoré, hyacinthe! hyacinthe! / Car je veux voir toujours dans les bois syriens / Ton beau corps étendu sur la rose et l'absinthe". Of the creation and significance of the poem, Douglas later recollected: "I met Pierre Louÿs in London, while I was living with Oscar at the Savoy Hotel. Louÿs came several times to lunch and dinner with us. He wrote a sonnet for me, which I published in the student journal which I then directed at Oxford, The Spirit Lamp. It was a free version of a letter written to me by Wilde, which was then used against him by my father during the trial". Also included in the final volume is "The Incomparable Beauty of Modern Dress", one of the earliest published pieces by Max Beerbohm. Though individual numbers do very occasionally turn up, complete sets of The Spirit Lamp are of great rarity. The only time a complete set in the original wrappers was recorded at auction was in 1975 (presented for sale with the original manuscript of Louÿs's "Hyacinthe" poem, inscribed to Wilde, inserted; the manuscript alone was resold in 2010 for €39,150). Prior to that, there were two complete sets at auction in 1968, but both were bound up. Otherwise we can find none recorded. The slipcase of this set bears the bookplate of New York judge and collector Frederick Spiegelberg, who died in 1937.
