        History of Godefrey of Boloyne, The

      , 1893. 1893. The First Book Published and Sold at the Kelmscott Press[KELMSCOTT PRESS]. [GUILELMUS, Archbishop of Tyre]. The History of Godefrey of Boloyne and of the Conquest of Iherusalem. [Hammersmith: Sold by William Morris, at the Kelmscott Press, 1893].One of 300 paper copies, out of a total edition of 306 copies. Large quarto. xxii, [2], 450, [2] pp. Printed in red and black in Troy and Chaucer types. Decorative woodcut title, borders, and initials. Woodcut printer’s device. Reprinted from Caxton’s edition of 1481. Edited by H. Halliday Sparling.Original full limp vellum with yapp edges. Spine lettered in gilt. Original brown silk ties. A couple of very small areas of rubbing on the edges, minimal foxing to the edges only, otherwise a near fine copy with the gilt on the spine bright and fresh. Housed in a quarter black morocco clamshell case.“This book must from a literary point of view be considered one of Caxton’s most important works. It is not a ‘romance,’ as it has been called by Dibdin, Blades, an others, but a very serious piece of history, the original of which is William of Tyre’s Historia Rerum in partibus transmarinis Gestarum; from the French translation of which Caxton made his English version, bringing it to an end just after the death of Godfrey, whereas the Archbishop of Tyre carries on the history for many more years. The style of Caxton’s book is vigorous and agreeable, and often reads like the most dramatic of all historic works, Lord Berner’s translation of Froissart, and altogether it is a delightful book to read” (William Morris, quoted in Peterson).“This was the fifth and last of the Caxton reprints, with many new ornaments and initials, and a new printer’s mark. It was first announced as in the press in the list dated Dec. 1892. It was the first book published and sold at the Kelmscott Press” (Sparling).Clark Library, Kelmscott and Doves, pp. 25-26.

An einen "geehrten Herrn Doktor": "Soeben habe ich allen Herren Vertrauensleuten und der Partei eine offizielle Bekanntmachung geschickt, daß ich kandidieren werde. Gestört hat mich diese Anonymität - vor allem wie könnte ich mich gegen die Agitation der N[arodni] L[isty] [d. s. die "Nationalen Blätter", das Parteiorgan der Agrarpartei] zur Wehr setzen? Werde ich nicht gewählt, wird es nicht schlimmer sein - wenigstens habe ich gezeigt, daß der Mensch sich um der Wahrheit willen nicht fürchten muß. Die N. L. würde auf jede Weise agitieren - etliche würden nicht wählen, wenn sie keine Sicherheit haben, daß ich kandidiere, deshalb ist es das beste aufzutreten. Dabei hat der von Ihnen genehmigte Plan Gültigkeit. Ich ersuche die Partei und die Herren Vertrauensleute, daß der Kandidat nicht aufgestellt wird und daß dann auch ich nicht in die Versammlung muß und wir dadurch den Streitigkeiten entgehen [...]" (aus einer beiliegenden Übersetzung ins Deutsche).

Diese zerstreuten Kräfte auf diesem engen Raum (vielleicht nicht eng genug, das wäre mein einziger Tadel) zusammengebracht zu haben, das gibt ein Explosiv-Buch! - Und wie schön nimmt sich unter all diesen Dichtungs Fürsten- und Rittern ihr eigenes Ritterlied aus! Natürlich werd ich [...] das Buch besprechen [...] Mit dem 'Gewitter' sind [Sie] zu glimpflich. Es war kein aus dem Herzen herausgeschriebenes Buch.

        The Principles of Sociology

      London - Williams and Norgate, 1893. London - Williams and Norgate, 1893 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce collection of this extensive study of sociology. Fourth thousand. With chapters including Ceremonial Institutions, Political Institutions, Industrial Institutions and Ecclesiastical Institutions. Herbert Spencer (27 April 1820 8 December 1903) was an English philosopher, biologist, sociologist, and prominent classical liberal political theorist of the Victorian era. Spencer read with excitement the original positivist sociology of Auguste Comte. A philosopher of science, Comte had proposed a theory of sociocultural evolution that society progresses by a general law of three stages. Writing after various developments in biology, however, Spencer rejected what he regarded as the ideological aspects of Comte's positivism, attempting to reformulate social science in terms of evolutionary biology. One might broadly describe Spencer's sociology as socially Darwinistic (though strictly speaking he was a proponent of Lamarckism rather than Darwinism). Complete in three volumes. Condition: In cloth bindings with gilt detiling to the front boards. Externally, generally smart, though with some bumping to the spines and a few marks to the boards. Hinges tender, with endpapers working loose. Internally, generally firmly bound, though slightly strained in places. Institutional bookplates and ink stampsto front pastedowns. Pages are generally bright and clean, with just the occasional patch of foxing (heavier to the endpapers). Overall: GOOD..

        "Freisinnige Zukunftsbilder", aus der Reihe:"Politischer Bilderbogen" Nr.3 - Nationalsozialistisches Schrifttum, Verkauf nur zu wissenschaftlichen Zwecken gem. § 86, Abs. 3 und § 86a StGB!

      Dresden, Verlag der Druckerei Glöß, 1893.. (aufgefaltet ca. 50 x 64 cm), gefalteter Bilderbogen. ORDENTLICHES EXEMPLAR, außen leicht unfrisch, die Knickkanten stellenweise fast unmerklich hinterlegt."Der Bilderbogen Nr. 3 thematisiert das Verhalten der Juden in Deutschland, geht allerdings spezifisch auf ihre enge Verbindung mit dem Linksliberalismus ein. Unter dem Titel 'Freisinnige Zukunftsbilder' wird dargestellt, wie es in Deutschland ausschaue, wenn die 'deutsch-blödsinnige Partei' (deutsch-freisinnige Partei) an die Macht käme. Dies sei gleichbedeutend mit einer jüdischen Machtergreifung, denn, so der Text, 'die Zukunft der Freisinnigen ist die Zukunft der Juden'." (Thomas Gräfe, "Antisemitismus in Gesellschaft und Karikatur des Kaiserreichs. Glöß' Politische Bilderbogen 1892-1901"). Die Reihe erschien in 33 Folgen zwischen 1892 und 1901. - Eines der Blätter bezeichnet "S. Horn" (sonst nicht weiter nachweisbar, sicher das Pseudonym des Zeichners), die Texte erschienen anonym, werden aber verlässlich dem Dresdner antisemitischen Schriftsteller Max Bewer zugeschrieben; der Verlag schreibt dazu: "Dieser Bogen ist nach dem Urtheile aller Zeitungen der beste aller bisher erschienenen. Die amtliche "Leipziger Zeitung" rühmt den reichsprudelnden Humor und die Fülle drastischer Erfindung. Die "Freisinnigen Zukunftsbilder" sind ein getreuer Spiegel des deutschen Lebens, falls es sich jemals unter freisinnigen Geiste enthalten sollte. Die gesamte freisinnige Presse verharrte vor diesem Spiegel in verlegenem Schweigen, während im übrigen Deutschland allgemeine Heiterkeit herrschte"
