        Caricatures, dont trois présumées de Jean Moréas. Composition de 4 dessins originaux, illustrant un manuscrit autographe.

      - Livre d'occasion Encre et plume, 6 x 9 cm sur un f. de 13, 5 x 10, 5 cm, encadrement sous verre. Une pensée sur " l'éternel féminin ". Le manuscrit est un fragment littéraire qui fut originellement publié de manière posthume par Félix Fénéon dans le numéro 6 de sa Revue anarchiste datée de la première quinzaine de novembre 1893. Laforgue y développe une idée largement évoquée dans sa pièce en vers Le Concile féerique : " Elles sont bêtes comme des enfants gâtées, devant qui les gens les plus sérieux et les plus âgés font à l'envi la roue jusqu'au grotesque au moindre de leur caprice idiot depuis des siècles. tout roman, tout opéra, tout drame le leur dit - elles fatalisent les gens, princes, pages, poètes, et il y a des morts. Comment voulez-vous après des siècles de ce régime qu'elles nous traitent en frères. " Jules Laforgue, peintre et critique d'art dans l'âme. Lui qui disait considérer ses tentatives poétiques comme des fantaisies, rêva toujours de devenir critique d'art ou peintre. N'ayant cessé de dessiner depuis l'enfance, il étudia l'esthétique en 1876 auprès de Taine à l'École des Beaux-Arts, et fréquenta l'atelier d'Henri Lehmann où il perfectionna sa technique du dessin et s'initia à la gravure. Il pratiqua surtout la caricature, dont il publia quelques exemples dans la revue La Guêpe. Il fréquenta par ailleurs inlassablement les marchands de tableaux et les musées - en France, et en Allemagne quand il fut lecteur de l'impératrice - et fréquenta les plus grands artistes, se montrant réceptif à l'avant-garde impressionniste et post-impressionniste : il avait rencontré Seurat dans l'atelier de Lehmann, et, quand il fut secrétaire de Charles Ephrussi à la Gazette des beaux-arts, avait fait la connaissance de Degas, Monet, Pissaro, Renoir. Provenance Album de Madame Théo Van Rysselberghe, Maria Monnom, épouse du peintre, qui fut la " petite dame " de Gide. Réf. bibliographiques : Exposition - L'UN POUR L'AUTRE, LES ECRIVAINS DESSINENT.

Édition par Maryke de Courten et Jean-Louis Debauve. Lausanne, L'Âge d'homme, 1983-2000. Le dessin est décrit dans le volume II, n° 118 de l'" Œuvre graphique ", et reproduit dans le même volume, pl. XVIII. Le texte est publié dans le volume III, 2000, pp. 1103-1104, n° 9 des " Feuilles volantes ". Condition : Un personnage moustachu en haut de forme, la canne sur l'épaule ; un autre personnage moustachu en costume à carreaux portant également une canne, représenté de profil et de dos ; un chanteur la main sur la poitrine, portant chapeau à plume et chaussures à poulaines. Une identification des deux moustachus avec le poète symboliste Jean Moréas a parfois été proposée, notamment sur la foi d'une ressemblance frappante de la silhouette de gauche avec le profil de Moréas sur la célèbre affiche de Cazals pour le septième Salon des 100 de 1894. Bien que plausible, cette identification n'est pas du tout certaine, selon Jean-Louis Debauve, Laforgue ayant exécuté de nombreux dessins similaires avant sa rencontre avec Moréas.

        Buffalo Bill [and the "Frenchman's Bottle Gag," a comic tableau from the wild west show]

      1893 - Provenance : Kennedy Galleries (labels); Collection of Edward Eberstadt & Sons. A very rare contemporary oil painting of an Act in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show: almost all of the images of the Wild West show are found in the great lithographic posters and photographs produced by the William F. Cody publicity machine. Period oil paintings of the Buffalo Bill act are very rare indeed. This wonderful image, showing a comic routine Buffalo Bill evidently adopted from European circus acts, is a unique contribution to the iconography of the Wild West Show. This entertaining painting almost certainly depicts a version of the comedy pantomime routine called "The Frenchman's Bottle Gag" as performed in England by Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show. The painting shows a bewildered Buffalo Bill in the center of the canvas, apparently ready to come to blows with two cockney characters on either side of him, one of whom is swilling a drink from a flask. A prominent historian of performance tells us: "The gag, made famous in Paris by the Hanlon Brothers and their collaborator, the Agoust Family Jugglers, in the long playing three-stage acrobatics, magic, and pantomime spectacular, Le Voyage en Suisse, usually involves two clowns, a ridiculously dressed Frenchman, and his bottle. The clowns steal his bottle and surreptitiously sneak sips back-and-forth, as the bewildered Frenchman desperately attempts to figure out who's got his bottle. This image is of costers or pearlies, East End London cockneys, victimizing the Buffalo Bill character - the old Hanlon & Agoust drinking routine re-costumed for the Wild West show's British audience." Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show made two extensive tours of England and Europe prior to the date of this painting, 1887-1888, arriving for Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, and 1889-1893, playing the great theaters and fairgrounds. The 1893 tour was at the height of the show's fame. The 1893 show program correctly stated, "Since the visit of Buffalo Bill's Wild West to England and its remarkable engagement in London, at West Brompton, in 1887, a history and tour have been made, such as no organization of its magnitude and requirements ever accomplished." Henri Agoust, the Hanlon's long-time collaborator (the parties later fell out and sued each other in a bitter legal dispute), had a son named Alfred, a member of the Agoust Family Jugglers. According to a census of traveling show people, he would have been in his early twenties in 1893. His biography is otherwise unknown. It seems likely, however, that the juggling Alfred Agoust was also the well trained, talented artist responsible for this magnificent show business painting, with its attention to costume, props, and comic gesture, demonstrating the specialized knowledge of the insider. John A. McKinven The Hanlon Brothers, their amazing acrobatics, pantomimes and stage spectacles (Glenwood, Illinois: David Meyer Magic Books, 1998), passim; Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World (Chicago: Blakely Printing Company, [1893]), passim. Oil on canvas, laid down on wood, 22 x 30 inches. Signed and dated lower left: "Alfred Agoust / 1893," titled: "Buffalo Bill" on Kennedy Gallery labels.

        Golf: A Royal And Ancient Game

      Macmillan 1893 - The author was an Edinburgh printer and enthusiastic golfer who became interested in collecting early writings of golf. The first edition was published in 1875 and was apparently limited to 200 copies, 50 of which were numbered, special editions. Moreover, he further tempted the collector by binding up a few "Presentation" copies, how many no-one knows exactly, though Hopkinson refers to "a few" while other sources mention a figure of 12. What is clear, and what Murdoch wryly points out his 1987 bibliography, is that "if you have one of the 'First', you have a prize; if you have one of the 'Presentation', you do not have to worry about educating your children". In addition, further editions were published in 1899, 1975, 1984 and 2005. This 1893 edition is notable for its numerous and charming engraved head and tail pieces and initial letters, by Clark Stanton and C.A. Doyle. Second edition. Small 4to. xxviii + 305pp. Woodcut frontispiece (by John Gilbert) depicting Charles I playing golf on Leith links, tissue-guard, + 6 plates and numerous wood engravings in the text. Original green cloth, sl rubbed, gilt vignette to upper board, very bright, title to spine dulled. Top edge gilt. A good copy. [D&M, 910] Ex. libris Graham Hunter Foundation, Inc., Restenneth Library, Forfar, Scotland, hence book-plate pasted-in on front pastedown. Graham Hunter was the second son of William George Hunter, who sold the Burnside Estate in 1881-3. He enjoyed a successful business career in Canada and USA. in the 1960s he acquired land at Restenneth and, in 1972, built a library for his collection of Scottish history books.

Extensive historical facts about St. Andrews and its history. Covers the early history of golf at the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, Royal Musselburgh and The Bruntsfield Links.

Clark did not write the contents per se, he served as the editor and attempted to reprint everything that had been published on the game of golf to date including poems. Back board has some minor ripples, some soiling to spine, otherwise binding is tight. Front board gilt illustration of three period men in a golfing ceremonial walk. Overall very good condition.

        Old Rabbit The Voodoo and Other Sorcerers

      1893. first edition. With Ten Illustrations by Louis Wain[WAIN, Louis, illustrator]. OWEN, Juliette A, illustrator. OWEN, Mary Alicia. Old Rabbit The Voodoo and Other Sorcerers… Introduction by Charles Godfrey Leland. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1893. First edition. Octavo. 7 5/8 x 5 1/8 inches; 195 x 130 mm.). xvi, 310, [1 imprint], [1 blank] pp. Frontispiece and 57 line drawings in the text of which several are full-page. Ten of the drawings are signed by Louis Wain. Publishers light blue cloth, front cover pictorially stamped in colors, spine lettered in gilt and black, partially uncut. Spine slightly faded, a few leaves poorly opened at top edge, otherwise a near fine copy.The illustrations by Louis Wain are interesting but very different to his usual 'feline' style.Mary Alicia Owen (1850?–1935) was a folklore collector of Missouri who compiled several works of local legend and voodoo. She was born in a family of Saint Joseph, Missouri and lived with her two sisters, Luella and Juliette, both of whom were noted authors. She became inspired to record the disappearing folk tales after reading Algonquin Legends of New England, beginning a correspondence with Charles Godfrey Leland. Her earliest publication was Old Rabbit the Voodoo, and other Sorcerers, printed with an introduction by Leland, which was favourably reviewed in the English journal Folk-Lore; the reviewer, E. S. Hartland, dismisses Leland's request for consideration as a first work and says of it, "From the first page to the last there is not a dull page...". Her researches and fieldwork had already been reported in a paper she read before the 1891 "Second International Folk-Congress" in London, which was printed in the Transactions of the conference as "Among the Voodoos". Her principal work was Voodoo tales as told among the Negroes of the southwest [the title given to the first American edition of Old Rabbit The Voodoo and Other Sorcerers]. Owen gave long service to The Missouri Folklore Society, serving as its President until the year of her death.

        Journal of the Elder Scientific Exploring Expedition, 1891

      Adelaide: House of Assembly, 1893. Folio, with two large colour folding maps; a very good copy, uncut in recent cloth. One of only 750 copies published: this rare printing is not recorded by Ferguson. Sir Thomas Elder, who had earlier financed the first great desert journey of Ernest Giles, in 1891 fitted out the expedition of David Lindsay, the celebrated Northern Territory explorer and surveyor general. In 1883 Lindsay had led an expedition into Arnhem Land, travelling to the Gulf of Carpentaria. He went on to explore extensively in the MacDonnell Ranges region before his last and most important work, this scientifically equipped expedition made possible by the sole support of Sir Thomas Elder. The object of the expedition was to explore the unknown interior of Western Australia between the routes laid out by Forrest in 1874 and Giles in 1875 'for the purpose of completing the exploration of Australia'. Lindsay's expedition arrived in Geraldton in January 1892, besieged by internal conflict: the entire scientific team, except for Lawrence Allen Wells, resigned. This marked an abrupt end to David Lindsay's career as an explorer and closed down an expensive expedition that produced very few new discoveries. This is the official report by the leader of the expedition, complete with maps. It predates the first public edition printed by C.E. Bristow. Published by order of the South Australian House of Assembly on 3 October 3 1893 at a cost of ninety seven pounds, four shillings and seven pence plus over thirty-three pounds for the lithography of the large folding maps. In the summary of the work Lindsay states that the expedition travelled 2,745 miles through unexplored country, whilst 80,000 square miles was explored and mapped. 'The abandoment of the expedition was a terrible disappointment to me. That men had so little sense of duty to their leader and to their generous employer should have been the primary cause of the break up of such a splendidly-equipped expedition…'.

        NOW FOR A STORY!

      1893. A Collection of Short Original Stories for Children. London: Skeffington and Son, 1893. Original light blue paper-covered boards decorated in white, pink, green and black. First Edition of this anthology of 18 "short original stories for children" by 13 different authors of the day -- including G. A. Henty ("The Wreckers of Pendarven"); others include L. T. Meade, Mrs. Molesworth and Mabel Wotton. It is a very delicate book, because it was bound in paper-covered boards rather than in cloth.~This copy is in very good condition, the main flaw being that the volume has been re-backed in similarly-light-blue cloth, with most of the original spine laid back down; the original light brown patterned endpapers are covered with later blue-patterned ones. Newbolt 165.1.
