        Report on Mombasa Victoria Lake railway survey

      London H. M. S. O 1893 - First edition. folio 124 pp., 7 large folding maps, original blue wrappers, a fine example. Report C. - 7025. Built during the Scramble for Africa, the Uganda Railway was the one genuinely strategic railway to be constructed in tropical Africa at that time. The Uganda Railway was named after its ultimate destination, for its entire original 660-mile length actually lay in what would become Kenya. Construction began at the port city of Mombasa in British East Africa in 1896 and finished at the line's terminus, Kisumu, on the eastern shore of Lake Victoria, in 1901. With their new steam-powered access to Uganda, the British could transport people and soldiers to ensure their domination of the region. The railway was a huge logistical achievement and became strategically and economically vital for both Uganda and Kenya. It helped to suppress slavery, by removing the need for humans in the transport of goods, but this came at a high price - 2,498 workers died during its construction. The incidents for which the building of the railway may be best remembered are the killings of a number of construction workers in 1898, during the building of a bridge across the Tsavo River. Hunting mainly at night, a pair of maneless male lions stalked and killed at least 28 Indian and African workers – although some accounts put the number of victims as high as 135. All this is described in Patterson's Man-Eaters of Tsavo, 1907. Not located in Temperley & Penson. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Spinestrip damaged with more than two thirds missing. Bookblock a little shaky. But front and rear wrappers in very good condition besides a smaller, closed tear to front wrapper. Minor signs of foxing only. Few marginal notes in the text and some underlining in ink. COPAC locates only 6 copies worldwide (and all of them falsely mention 1893 as issue date, which results from the mentioning of the date on the titlepage as "Copyright , October 1893". On the Character - page below the title it correctly reads: "Played for the first time at the St.James's Theatre, on Thursday, February 14th, 1895". Remarkably rare and desirable collector's item of Wilde's masterpiece. Stuart Mason - Bibliography of Oscar Wilde - No. 384 (page 431). Later impression of the First Edition of the so-called "Acting Edition", containing an unrevised text ! This one sown, not wired. Barely any of these Textbooks survived. [The Dramatic Works of Oscar Wilde]. The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ in order to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Contemporary reviews all praised the play's humour, though some were cautious about its explicit lack of social messages, while others foresaw the modern consensus that it was the culmination of Wilde's artistic career so far. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play. The successful opening night marked the climax of Wilde's career but also heralded his downfall. The Marquess of Queensberry, whose son Lord Alfred Douglas was Wilde's lover, planned to present the writer with a bouquet of rotten vegetables and disrupt the show. Wilde was tipped off and Queensberry was refused admission. Soon afterwards their feud came to a climax in court, where Wilde's homosexual double life was revealed to the Victorian public and he was eventually sentenced to imprisonment. His notoriety caused the play, despite its early success, to be closed after 86 performances. After his release, he published the play from exile in Paris, but he wrote no further comic or dramatic work.After the success of Wilde's plays Lady Windermere's Fan and A Woman of No Importance, Wilde's producers urged him to write further plays. In July 1894 he mooted his idea for The Importance of Being Earnest to George Alexander, the actor-manager of the St James's Theatre. Wilde summered with his family at Worthing, where he wrote the play quickly in August. His fame now at its peak, he used the working title Lady Lancing to avoid pre-emptive speculation of its content. Many names and ideas in the play were borrowed from people or places the author had known Lady Queensberry, Lord Alfred Douglas's mother, for example, lived at Bracknell. There is widespread agreement among Wilde scholars that the most important influence on the play was W. S. Gilbert's 1877 farce Engaged Wilde borrowed from Gilbert not only several incidents but, in Russell Jackson's phrase "the gravity of tone demanded by Gilbert of his actors". Wilde continually revised the text over the next months: no line was left untouched, and "in a play so economical with its language and effects, [the revisions] had serious consequences". Sos Eltis describes Wilde's revisions as a refined art at work: the earliest, longest handwritten drafts of the play labour over farcical incidents, broad puns, nonsense dialogue and conventional comic turns. In revising as he did, "Wilde transformed standard nonsense into the more systemic and disconcerting illogicality which characterises Earnest's dialogue". Richard Ellmann argues that Wilde had reached his artistic maturity and wrote this work more surely and rapidly than before. Wilde hesitated about submitting the script to Alexander, worrying that it might be unsuitable for the St James's Theatre, whose typical repertoire was relatively serious, and explaining that it had been written in response to a request for a play "with no real serious interest". When Henry James's Guy Domville failed, Alexander turned to Wilde and agreed to put on his play. Alexander began his usual meticulous preparations, interrogating the author on each line and planning stage movements with a toy theatre. In the course of these rehearsals Alexander asked Wilde to shorten the play from four acts to three. Wilde agreed and combined elements of the second and third acts. The largest cut was the removal of the character of Mr. Gribsby, a solicitor who comes from London to arrest the profligate "Ernest" (i.e., Jack) for his unpaid dining bills. Algernon, who is posing as "Ernest", will be led away to Holloway Jail unless he settles his accounts immediately. Jack finally agrees to pay for Ernest, everyone thinking that it is Algernon's bill when in fact it is his own. The four-act version was first played on the radio in a BBC production and is still sometimes performed. Peter Raby argues that the three-act structure is more effective, and that the shorter original text is more theatrically resonant than the expanded published edition. The play was first produced at the St James's Theatre on Valentine's Day 1895. It was freezing cold but Wilde arrived dressed in "florid sobriety", wearing a green carnation. The audience, according to one report, "included many members of the great and good, former cabinet ministers and privy councillors, as well as actors, writers, academics, and enthusiasts". Allan Aynesworth, who played Algernon Moncrieff, recalled to Hesketh Pearson that "In my fifty-three years of acting, I never remember a greater triumph than [that] first night". Aynesworth was himself "debonair and stylish", and Alexander, who played Jack Worthing, "demure". The Marquess of Queensberry, the father of Wilde's lover Lord Alfred Douglas (who was on holiday in Algiers at the time), had planned to disrupt the play by throwing a bouquet of rotten vegetables at the playwright when he took his bow at the end of the show. Wilde and Alexander learned of the plan, and the latter cancelled Queensberry's ticket and arranged for policemen to bar his entrance. Nevertheless, he continued harassing Wilde, who eventually launched a private prosecution against the peer for criminal libel, triggering a series of trials ending in Wilde's imprisonment for gross indecency. Alexander tried, unsuccessfully, to save the production by removing Wilde's name from the billing, but the play had to close after only 86 performances. The play's original Broadway production opened at the Empire Theatre on 22 April 1895, but closed after sixteen performances. Its cast included William Faversham as Algy, Henry Miller as Jack, Viola Allen as Gwendolen, and Ida Vernon as Lady Bracknell. The Australian premiere was in Melbourne on 10 August 1895, presented by Dion Boucicault, Jr. and Robert Brough, and the play was an immediate success. Wilde's downfall in England did not affect the popularity of his plays in Australia. Wilde's two final comedies, An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest, were still on stage in London at the time of his prosecution, and they were soon closed as the details of his case became public. After two years in prison with hard labour, Wilde went into exile in Paris, sick and depressed, his reputation destroyed in England. In 1898, when no-one else would, Leonard Smithers agreed with Wilde to publish the two final plays. Wilde proved to be a diligent reviser, sending detailed instructions on stage directions, character listings and the presentation of the book, and insisting that a playbill from the first performance be reproduced inside. Ellmann argues that the proofs show a man "very much in command of himself and of the play". Wilde's name did not appear on the cover, it was "By the Author of Lady Windermere's Fan". His return to work was brief though, as he refused to write anything else, "I can write, but have lost the joy of writing". (Wikipedia)

        Hartmann the Anarchist.

      London: Edward Arnold, 1893. - FIRST EDITION, AUTHOR'S COPY with numerous notes. Octavo, pp.214. Adverts dated October 1893. Illustrated throughout. Publisher's pictorial red cloth with coated yellow endpapers. A heavily used/working copy, with boards detached and soiled, lacking spine, etc. Features many notes in ink and pencil, plus reviews copied out by the author to the endpapers. The flyleaf also includes the ownership signature of the author's wife. Purchased from Christies in 2005, with the original lot ticket included, and housed in a later yet vintage envelope bearing the typed note 'although this book is the worse for wear it is VERY RARE and VALUABLE'. Fawcett was a pioneer in many different areas, including colour photography, motoring, mountaineering, aeronautics, science fiction and philosophy. He wrote a number of fantasy novels and forecast landmark military events such as an aerial bombardment of London (The Blitz) and the first fictional account of armoured fighting vehicles 20 years before the first tanks would appear in the Great War. Douglas was the brother of Colonel Percy Fawcett, who famously led an expedition into the Amazonian rainforest in search of a fabled city, but was never seen again. In the absence of facts about his demise legends quickly grew up about the man and his fate, and he was reputed to have become the model for the fictional adventurer Indiana Jones.

      Der ungarische Künstler Sándor Bortnyik (1893 - 1976) war einer der bekanntesten Vertreter der Künstlergruppe ?MA?. In seinen vom deutschen Expressionismus und französischen Kubismus geprägten Arbeiten unterstützte der Avantgarde-Künstler auch die Kommunistische Partei (Kommunisták Magyarországi Pártja). Nach der Niederschlagung der ungarischen Räterepublik im August 1919 emigrierte Bortnyik mit Kassák und anderen ?MA?-Künstlern nach Wien. Anfang der 20er Jahre stellte Bortnyik in der Berliner Galerie ?Der Sturm? aus und wohnte einige Jahre in Weimar, wo er enge Verbindungen zum Bauhaus hat. 1928 gründet der inzwischen nach Budapest zurückgekehrte Bortnyik die Schule für Werbegrafik ?Mühely?, auch ?Das kleine Bauhaus? genannt.

        Australian Lepidoptera and their Transformations. Drawn from the life by Harriet and Helena Scott; with descriptions, general and systematic, by A.W. Scott

      Sydney: Australian Museum, 1893. Wrappers a bit chipped; some intermittent browning and foxing, as usual, plates well preserved, a very good set.. Five folio parts comprising letterpress and a total of 21 lithographic plates (18 handcoloured), original decorated green tinted wrappers; preserved in a custom built folding cloth case. A beautiful Australian natural history production, now increasingly scarce on the market as a complete publication.Alexander Scott published the first volume of Australian Lepidoptera in London in 1864. It contains nine plates after original drawings by his daughters Harriet and Helena, and was issued in an edition of 100 copies only (of which 25 were sold in Australia). The first edition of the first volume is now a rare book and not forthcoming on the market.Some years after the decease of Alexander in 1883, Harriet and Helena instigated the completion of their father's cherished project, and the remaining parts were published by the Australian Museum in Sydney between 1890-1893. Given the scarcity of the first volume, the Museum reissued it with a facsimile of the 1864 title page (this section was published in 1899 and bears that date on the facsimile title page).The second volume contains plates numbered 10 to 21; attractively Harriet and Helena prepared the lithographic stones which were then printed in Sydney. Some years previously, the sisters received printmaking knowledge from a Hunter Valley neighbour, Samuel Thomas Gill, a skilled artist renowned for his lithographs of goldfields scenes. The plates for Australian Lepidoptera were then sent to be handcoloured in England, using original artworks by the sisters as a guideThis is an complete example of Australian Lepidoptera, with the suite of 21 plates present (numbers 1-18 are handcoloured). It has been the unfortunate fate of many sets to be dispersed with the prints individually framed, and the letterpress by Alexander Scott discarded.Full collation of the five parts as follows:Vol. 1 -, 30 pp., facsimile title-page [dated 1899] plates 1-9 in series (interleaved with caption letterpress leaves).Vol. 2. Part I. title-page, 11 pp., plates 10-12 (interleaved, as above); some browning of the letterpress, as usual for this paper stock.Vol. 2. Part II. decorated wrappers, pp.11-18, plates 13-15 in series, interleaved.Vol. 2. Part III. decorated wrappers, pp.19-26, plates 16-18 in series, interleaved.Vol. 2. Part IV. decorated wrappers, pp.27-36, plates 19-21 in series (not coloured), interleaved.
