        The Prince of India [RARE COPY in the dust jackets and storage box by the Author of Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ]

      Harper and Brothers, New York 1893 - A Fine, Bright, Superior, copy of the first edition, first printing (tiny split to the first volume's rear hinge), in Fine dust jackets (with modest wear to the spine ends), complete with the original warehouse storage box. A person of wide-ranging ability, Lew Wallace was, at various times, a lawyer in private practice, the prosecuting attorney of Indiana's 1st Congressional District, a Union General in the American Civil War, the Governor of the New Mexico Territory, a Major General in the Mexican Army,the U.S. minister to the Ottoman Empire, a member of the military commission that investigated the Lincoln assassination conspirators, and a Best-Selling Author. [In America's Civil War, Wallace attained the rank of Major General, participated in the Battle of Fort Donelson, the Battle of Shiloh, and the Battle of Monocacy, and on June 12, 1861, led his Regiment to victory in a seemingly minor battle at Romney, Virginia . in present-day West Virginia. The rout was rather notable in that the victory gave a much-needed morale boost to Union troops and led to the Confederate evacuation of Harpers Ferry on June 18.] Wallace wrote a number of novels, including "Ben-Hur" which became the best-selling American novel of the 19th century, surpassing Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin". However, Wallace considered "The Prince of India" to be his best novel. This is a remarkable copy of that novel, not only because of its beautiful condition, but also because each Volume wears its dust jacket and the set resides in the original storage box. ONLY TWO SUCH COPIES ARE KNOWN TO EXIST. The viewer will notice, of course, that, being from the period when jackets typically were used not to sell books but only to keep books clean until put out for sale, the dust jackets are plain. [Virtually all of the dust jackets for the novel would have been discarded.] The viewer also will see that the spine of each dust jacket is pinch-torn to reveal each volume's number (I and II) — a common warehouse practice — which would have made verifying that both volumes comprising the novel were present within the storage box an easy process for the person retrieving the books from the storage shelf. Furthermore, the dust jackets from the period also often lacked the decoration one sees on later-published books. Such jackets also often did not show one or all of the title, the author, or the publisher — all three being absent from these dust jackets. As the box has a label, it was not necessary to disturb the dust jackets -- other than to pinch-tear them to show the each Volume number -- as the author and title are show on the storage box label, making locating the set on the warehouse shelves easier than would otherwise have been the case. (While the box as some general wear, its bottom panel is separated, and one rear corner seam is fully split, the box is complete and could easily be restored by a good binder.) While the term "Rare" is overused when describing books, this copy of the novel, is TRULY RARE -- WITH ONLY TWO SUCH COPIES KNOWN TO EXIST IN THE DUST JACKETS -- and even RARER IN THE STORAGE BOX, making this copy a PART OF BOOK HISTORY and AN IMPORTANT COPY as well. A REMARKABLE SURVIVOR OF BIBLIOGRAPHIC IMPORTANCE. [OFFERS ON THIS SET WILL BE CONSIDERED.] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Paris: Librairie de l’Art Independant (and) Londres: Elikin Mathews et John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1893. Sm. 4to, 84, (1, imprint)pp. Full purple morocco with art nouveau floral design to upper cover inlaid in brown, orange, red, green, blue, and tan, top edge gilt, gilt-tooled turn-ins, marbled endpapers and blue ribbon, by Hyman Zucker. Original purple wrappers bound in. In purple linen wrapper and slipcase, faded. Near fine. First edition, limited to 600 copies, in a gorgeous American art nouveau binding. Hyman Zucker thoughtfully building his design on a purple crushed morocco, echoing the original purple wraps chosen specifically by Wilde. “Wilde's play was rehearsed during June 1892 for production at the Palace Theatre in London with Sarah Bernhardt in the title role. The Lord Chamberlain refused a licence, however, owing to the representation of Biblical characters on the public stage. It was decided therefore to move the premiere to Paris. This edition was published on 22 February 1893, the purple binding chosen deliberately by Wilde: in a letter to Campbell Dodgson the author remarked that "Bosie is very gilt-haired and I have bound Salome in purple to suit him" (Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde, ed. Merlin Holland, pp.555-56). He also presented a copy to Bernard Shaw, remarking, "Salome presents herself to you in purple raiment" (op.cit., p.554).” (Sothebys).

        Bad for Carreiro, Looks As If He is the Murderer, He Buys Shoes.

      1893 - A Lesser-Known, But Equally Notorious, Axe-Murder in Fall River, Massachusetts [Broadside]. [Murder]. [Carreiro, Jose]. "Bad for Carreiro. Looks as If He is the Murderer. He Buys Shoes and Offers a Trade Dollar, And a Mutilated Half Dollar in Payment. Similar Coins Taken from Bertha's Room. Denies Any Such Transaction. Portuguese Answering His Description. Seen Running on Wilson Road on Morning of the Murder. Carrero Will be Charged with Murder in the District Court Tomorrow. Fine Piece of Police Work." Daily Evening News Bulletin! [Fall River, MA, June, 1893]. 17-1/4" x 10-3/4" broadside, four-column text below headline. Light browning, faint vertical and horizontal fold lines and creases, light rubbing and a few minor tears to edges. $650. * Carreiro, a Portuguese immigrant, entered the home of his former employer, Stephen Manchester, killed and dismembered his daughter, Bertha, with an axe and took money from her room. As the headline indicates, he was detected when he tried to use currency that had distinct marks that indicated Bertha's ownership. People immediately saw similarities between this case and the Lizzie Borden murders, which took place in Fall River the previous year. Along with the type of murder and mutilation, both acts occurred midday without a clear motive. Carreiro holds the dubious honor of Fall River's second most notorious axe murderer. This appears to be an unrecorded broadside. No copies listed on OCLC. Not in McDade, which has no accounts of this murder.

        The Birth, Life, and Acts of King Arthur of His Noble Knights of the Round table Their Marvellous Enquests and Adventures the Achieving of the San Greal and in the End le Morte Darthur with the Dolourous Death and Departing Out of This World of Them All

      London: J. M. Dent, 1893. First edition, limited to 1,500 copies. Volume One only (Includes Books 1-9), in extremely rare dust jacket. Published London: J. M. Dent, 1893. 4to., 8 1/2" x 10", lxiv + 455 pages, illustrated with full page plates, vignettes, borders, in-text decorations and cover design by Aubrey Beardsley. Beardsley's first major commission and a landmark of great illustrated books. Beardsley juxtaposed various traditional and contemporary styles with his own, and laid them down, side-by-side throughout the book. From elaborate and formal William Morris design elements to shocking eroticism and striking decadence - as in the case of the frontpiece plate of Arthur. Cream linen cloth with elaborate gilt design and fancy titles. Top edge gilting, 3-color ribbon marker bound in. Slight foxing to the cloth, endpapers toned along the perimeters, some wrinkling to the tissue guard at frontis, else very good, attractive; binding square and tight in rare, unrecorded dust jacket. We have been unable to locate any other example in a dust jacket. Jacket has rebacking and loss at the spine and rear panel. A highly desirable and collectible book. . 1st. Hard. Very Good/Good. Illus. by Beardsley, Aubrey. 4to. Limited Edition.

Le Nabi est parvenu à se libérer de toute servitude descriptive pour mieux investir le texte en créateur. Précieux envoi autographe signé d'André Gide à Edouard Picard à l'encre sur la page de faux-titre. Le Voyage d'Urien est un des grands livres illustrés dans la tradition du livre de peintre inaugurée par Édouard Manet, Charles Cros et Stéphane Mallarmé en 1874-1875. La collaboration entre le peintre et l'auteur fut des plus étroites. "Ce livre est la trace la plus accentuée du symbolisme, la ratification par les Nabis du principe du livre de dialogue" (Yves Peyré). Ce voyage du Rien est une odyssée ironique, écrite "en réaction contre l'école naturaliste" oû quelques jeunes gens en quête de "glorieuses destinées" s'embarquent pour un périple allégorique qui débouche dans les déserts glacés de la stérilité.

        Horus oder astrognostisches Endurtheil über die Offenbarung Johannis und über die Weissagungen auf den Messias wie auch über Jesum und seine Jünger. Mit einem Anhange von Europens neuern Aufklärung und von der Bestimmung des Menschen durch Gott. Ein Lesebuch zur Erholung für die Gelehrten und ein Denkzeddel [sic!] für Freimaurer. Erstausg.

      XXVI, 474 S., mit drei Textholzschnitten u. kl. astrolog. Fig., 8, Neuerer marmorierter Pappband mit goldgepr. Rückenschild Kloss 3821 Wolfstieg 4864: "Selten. Üb. die alten Einweihungen. Bringt die M[au]r[er]ei in Z[u]s[ammen]hang mit der Offenbarung Johannis. Abati 4 (1893) S.133 erwähnt einen Nachdruck, der bei Mösle in Wien erschien" Ackermann V/345. - Wurde schon zur Zeit des Erscheinens Christian Ernst Wünsch zugeschrieben (so auch Holzmann/Bohatta: Deutsches Anoymen-Lexikon 1501-1850), was aber von dem Literaturhistoriker Flodoard von Biedermann (Euphorion XX, 1913, S. 406-409) widerlegt wurde. Eine zweite Aufl. erschien 1784. - Der Autor äussert sich sehr kritisch zur Bibel u. meint, "daß beynahe eben so viele durch die Bibel als durch unglückliche Liebe, ihren Verstand verlohren haben" (S.X). Auch versucht er, rationelle Erklärungen für einige der "Wahrsagermärchen" zu finden. (So beschreibt er die Evangelisten als Fanatiker u. Jesu Tod als Ohnmacht, der bald der wirkliche Tod durch Wundbrand folgte). Er "will deutlich zeigen, daß alle Volksreligionen im Grunde durchaus aus einer gemeinsamen Quelle, aus den alten Beobachtungen der Himmels- und Naturbegebenheiten herfließen" (S.XII). Ausserdem wendet sich der Autor gegen die "Goldmacherei", der zu seiner Zeit zahlreiche Freimaurer anhingen, u. von denen viele ihre "Wahrheit" aus der Bibel beweisen wollen. Im Gegensatz dazu soll sein Werk zur "ihrer bessern Belehrung dienen". Er selbst beschreibt sein Buch in gewisser Weise als "einen Beytrag zur Geschichte der Sternkunde" (S.XXVI). - Kanten berieben Vorsatz mit Signatur seltene kl. Anstreichungen durchgehend etwas fleckig u. gebräunt, sonst ein gutes Expl.
