        The Pentamerone

      London: Henry, 1893. First Edition. Cloth. fine. 2 vols. 1st edition of this translation. Original cloth, fine condition, fresher than an Italian bachelor. A book that is painfully common but not every set looks like this one, much in the same way that not every man with a mustache is a pedophile. This 1893 Burton edition is considerably more comprehensive than any earlier translation into English, but for all the praise heaped on Sir Richard, I think (where comparable) it's just a minor improvement over Taylor's translation, if it is any improvement at all.

        Étude de Femme [Study of A Woman]

      Paris: Édouard Kleinmann, 1893. First Edition. fine. Toulouse-Lautrec. 1st printing, 1st issue, Wittrock 11, the rare state A, of 3 (A, B, and C). This state A precedes the edition of 100 and is geometrically more limited. A fine lithograph on laid Japan paper, with full margins (9 5/8" X 15 1/2"). Signed by the artist with his monogram in black pencil, and it is anomalous to find his lithographs of this type signed by hand, as what is usually seen are his initials applied in the plate or with a stamp. The ownership chain tells a fully comforting tale. Ex-Roger Marx, his tiny indicator in the corner, and his pencil note, in French, along the bottom edge. Ex-The Museum of Modern Art, New York, from their own collection, and sold to subsidize their Acquisitions Fund, an impeccable provenance for the certainty of the lithograph, but even more importantly, for the certainty of the pencil signature. Framed. There is a painting, on cardboard, of the same young woman, in the same pose, at The Musee Toulouse-Lautrec in Albi, but it isn't a great painting, inasmuch as it has none of the background, and she isn't drawn as pretty. Toulouse-Lautrec was 4 feet 8 inches tall, with a normal size body on child size legs, but he was a superstar post-impressionist painter, the first artist to hang in the Louvre while he was alive, and he lived in the Montmartre, and chilled at Le Moulin Rouge (The Red Mill), where a table was always reserved for him, so he ate well, drank fine cognac, and got laid a lot, by dazzling babes, who really liked him.

The Book Of Common Praye, and Administration of the Sacraments and Other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church According to the Use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America. Together with the Psalter or Psalms of David New York: Printed for the Committee [The De Vinne Press], 1893. One of 500 large-paper decorative copies. This edition was to be distributed to the Subscribers. This copy numbered "12" in pencil at the colophon. Thick folio (14 1/4 x x 10 1/4 inches; 357 x 260 mm). [28], [1]-566, [2, colophon] pp. Text printed in red and black. Printed on thick paper. Each page with ornate border. With "Certificate" and facsimile signatures of all members of the prayer book revision committee. With the pamphlet entitled "On the Decorations of the Limited Edition of the Standard Prayer Book of 1892" laid in. Original full vellum over beveled boards.

Vellum a with some very minor discoloration. Internally extremely clean. Previous owner's ink signature, dated 1893 on front free endpaper. Overall an about fine copy. From the Colophon: "The printing of this edition of the Book of Common Prayer on American hand-made paper was finished on the twenty-second day of November, MDCCCXCIII [1893], at the De Vinne Press in the City of New York. The plan of symbolism and method of decoration were arranged by Mr. Daniel Berkeley Updike: The preparatory studies of plants were made by Mr. William Wells Bosworth: The designs for the borders and cover by Mr. Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, and the final drawings for reproduction by Mr. Joseph Eliot Hill." "The General Convention of1892 authorized a new revision of the Book of Common Prayer for the Episcopal Church, which was to be the standard from which all new and variously priced editions of the Prayer Book would be printed. The pagination was standardized, as were all other aspects of the book, from the text to the precise sequence, instructions, and so on. The Standard Book was made for presentation to various dioceses and dignitaries, with one, specially bound, to be kept by a 'Custodian of the Prayer Book'. The publication committee turned to Theodore Low De Vinne to print the text, and for the ornamental borders it approached a young printer, Daniel Berkeley Updike, who had recently founded his own press. Updike devised the design program and the architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue executed the vaguely medievalized floral borders that had to surround every page of De Vinne's modern type. They tried their best to complement the text, bit it must be said that they failed. However, the book, enhanced bu handsome endpapers, with a beautiful gold-stamped parchment binding with ornate clasps- All designed by Goodhue- is a formidable piece of work. John Pierpont Morgan was the great moving force behind production of this book, collecting significant older Prayer Books in great number for the committee to evaluate and select. The enormous costs of the undertaking of the Standard Book were totally borne by him." (The Oxford Guide to The Book of Common Prayer: A Worldwide Survey. Edited by Charles Hefling, Cynthia Shattuck). HBS 67907. $1,250 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        19 JEWISH-RELATED BANK ACCOUNT DOCUMENTS FROM THE HIBERNIA SAVINGS AND LOAN SOCIETY

      San Francisco([1893-1895]). 1st Edition. All Original Documents. 4to. 19 printed documents, dated 1893-1895, with names and other information in manuscript, plus 2 related manuscript notes ; 38 cm. These historic withdrawal notices and communications between the Hibernia Savings and Loan Society and several early Jewish Institutions of San Francisco provide a glimpse into the exchange between San Francisco's Irish and Jewish communities in the late 19th century. "With the Gold Rush, San Francisco's Irish population grew to 4, 200 in 1852; by 1880 this number had reached more than 30, 000, thirty-seven percent of San Francisco's population. They formed cultural organizations like the Hibernia Association (1852) , The Irish Festival (1863) , and The Knights of the Red Branch (in the Mission) . . . The Irish were . . . prominent in business. Samuel Brannan printed San Francisco's first newspaper in 1846. John Sullivan founded Hibernia Savings and Loan and the Hibernia Housing Society, which helped immigrants with loans to buy land and homes." (sfcityguides.org, 2016). Each document deals with the account of a 19th Century San Francisco Jewish institution, some of which include: Chebra B'Rith Shalom, Chebra Shaare Refooah Society, Congregation Ohabi Shalome, Congregation Tiferes Izrael, the California Lodge, and the Society Sons of Jacob. One document also deals with the Polish Ladies Society and Mutual Aid. Signatures included on these documents are those of: Theodor Blodes, Sigmund Fischer, Soloman Meyer, Leiser Zier, Samuel Cohn, David Block, Morris Whitehead, David Cohn, Julius Oraelsky, Adolf Morris, Charles Danziger, Magdalena Kropaniewicz, Paulina Fijalkowky, Isaac Silverman, George Rosenberg, Harris Rubin, Louis Friedlander, Abraham Colman, and many, many others. Some edgewear, and a few have small tears but overall the documents are in Good+ condition. (AMR-49-43)

        Memoirs of A Reformer (1832-1892)

      Toronto: Hunter, Rose & Company, 1893. Hardcover. Very good. 271 p. 19 cm. Frontispiece portrait of the author, 2 b&w illustrations, and a facsimile letter. Grey cloth hardcover with gold print. Ink signature on front free endpaper of Dugald A. McKerrall of the hamlet of Eberts, near Dresden, Ontario. Alexander Milton Ross (1832 – 1897) was a "conductor" on the Underground Railroad, known in that organization and among slaves as "The Birdman" for his preferred cover story as an ornithologist. A man of diverse interests and accomplishments, he was not only a bird expert but also a keen botanist and entomologist. An idealist, Ross manifested his beliefs in radical, anti-establishment activity and in polemical writing. As these Memoirs indicate, he was a committed and outspoken abolitionist but held a variety of other controversial views; he was a health fanatic, vegetarian, teetotaller, anti-vaccination and tobacco crusader, feminist, and eugenicist. The Appendix to this volume suggest he had an ego to match his accomplishments, for he includes praise by famous persons of his age (Gladstone, Garibaldi, Victor Hugo, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Horace Greeley, John Greenleaf Whittier) and rave reviews of his books.

        The Pentamerone

      London: Henry, 1893. 2 vols. 1st edition of this translation. Original cloth, fine condition, fresher than an Italian bachelor. A book that is painfully common but not every set looks like this one, much in the same way that not every man with a mustache is a pedophile. This 1893 Burton edition is considerably more comprehensive than any earlier translation into English, but for all the praise heaped on Sir Richard, I think (where comparable) it's just a minor improvement over Taylor's translation, if it is any improvement at all. fine.

First edition of this selection from Marx's Capital, published in the series Petite bibliothèque économique française et étrangère, the product of a surprising collaboration. Lafargue, a founder of the French socialist party and later Marx's son-in-law, of all the French Marxist writers closest to German orthodoxy, made the selection of the extracts. Pareto, whose economic and sociological views by no means coincided with those of Marx, provided the lengthy introduction.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Alcsút, 11. VIII. 1893. - 4 SS. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Professor: "Verzeihen Sie mir meine sehr späte Antwort auf Ihr freundliches Schreiben vom 8. Juni und empfangen Sie meinen herzlichsten Dank für das sehr interessante Werk aus Guayana. Leider bin ich zu alt um so weitgehende Reisen zu unternehmen obwohl die Lust da wäre. Seit Ende Mai hielt ich im ganzen Bereiche meiner Wirksamkeit die Inspectionsreisen nach deren Vollendung ich meine Tochter in Regensburg und die Braut meines Sohnes in München besuchte und unter Weges Wörishofen berührte um den alten Pfarrer Kneipp zu besuchen, der mich so mancher Leiden enthob. Aus dem anliegenden ½ Hefte der ‚Ethnologischen Mittheilungen' [ ] welche Zeitschrift ich übernehme da sie den Hungertode nahe war, werden Sie einiges über meine Zigeuner sehen. Es war allerdings nicht möglich in einem Jahre diese Wilden zu bändigen, und längere Concession bekam ich nur auf 5 Familien die jetzt ganz in meinem Dienst stehen. Die andern wandern nun wieder aber besuchen mich häufiger als je, da sie nicht entsagen wollen mich als ihr Oberhaupt anzuerkennen. Jedenfalls sind sie in ihrem Benehmen jetzt nicht so stürmisch als früher. So oft sie kommen finden sie Unterkunft bei mir und bekommen stets so wie früher Kleider und Lebensmittel, Geld möglich wenig [ ]. Dr. Hirsch's Versuch scheiterte! Ich bin zwar nicht Antisemit, aber die Zigeuner habe ich doch lieber als die Juden [ ]. Seit ich Kneipps Anfänger bin fühlte ich keinen Ischias mehr und meine Lunge ist in besserem Zustand als seit 20 Jahren [ ]". - Auf Briefpapier mit gepr. Wappeninitialen.

      Con la prefazione di T. Gautier e l'aggiunta di studi critici di Sainte-Beuve, G. Assalineau, J-B- D'Aubervilly, E. Deschamps, ecc. Milano, Edoardo Sonzogno Editore, 1893. in-8, pp. 385, cartone editoriale con deliziosa sovracoperta editoriale figurata. Prima edizione italiana de ''Les Fleurs du Male'' tradotti da Riccardo Sonzogno, nipote dell'editore Edoardo. La raccolta di 100 poesie fu pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1857 da Poluet-Malassis in 500 copie. Qualche mese più tardi il libro fu sequestrato facendo finire Baudelaire e l'editore sotto processo con l'accusa di pubblicazione turpe ed oltraggiosa. L'esito del processo porterà alla censura di sei poesie (verranno pubblicate a parte a Bruxelles col titolo ''I relitti'') e ad una pena pecuniaria poi ridotta su decisione dell'Imperatrice. Quattro anni più tardi l'opera fu ristampata senza le sei poesie poste sotto accusa. Qualche fioritura, la copertina in carta pergamenata rinforzata lungo il margine destro, metà del dorso rifatto.. .
