GRABOWSKI, A. (Edt.). - [A PIONEERING WORK OF ESPERANTO LITERATURE - THE FIRST ESPERANTO POETRY]
Nurnberg, Tümmel, 1893. Bound in a lovely, a bit later half calf with gilding to spine. Old owner's name to front free end-paper (John Lundgren). Two leaves inserted after the last printed poem, before the contents-leaves, One leaf with a neatly hand-written 8-verse (4 lines to each verse) poem entitled "Vespero. de l'sveda poeto Nikander". At the end: "Tradukis Sig. Agrell". The other inserted leaf blank. A lovely, clean, and fresh copy. ¶ Scarce first edition of the first Esperanto anthology, being the first published work with poetry in Esperanto. This publication is of the utmost importance to the communal language Esperanto and constitutes the official baptism of Esperanto poets. As Carlo Minnaja points out in "Un secolo di traduzioni letterarie dall'italiano in esperanto", even if the format of this small book is modest, "it's content is anything but insignificant": It contains 110 poems, by 24 different authors. Many of the poems are translated from German and Russian, but many are from numerous other languages: English, Polish, Arab, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Italian, Czech. And then there are 27 original Esperanto-poems, by 12 different authors of various languages and countries. Some of the contributors are famous poets, some are relatively well known, and some again are completely unknown, "but the mere creation of the work is in itself a great success: whoever would have this anthology in his hands, would be able to enjoy the jewels not so widely known in Europe. The propagandist significance of even a small work of this kind was quite clear: Esperanto is … [Click Below for Full Description]

NIKOLAJ - ON [DANIELSON, NIKOLAJ FRANCEVIC]. - [THE BIBLE OF RUSSIAN LIBERAL ECONOMIC THOUGHT]
S.-Petersburg, A Benke, 1893. 8vo. Bound with the original printed green front wrapper in a beautiful green half calf with gilt lettering to spine. Front wrapper brownspotted. Bottom 3 cm. of p.1-2 cut off, shaving a few lines off. A few underlinings to the first leaves. XVI, 353, (1) pp. + 29 tables, numbered I-XVI (with a,b,c's: IIIa-b, IVa-h, Va-c, VIa-b, VIIa-b, Xa-bXIIIa-b), on 16 leaves, 12 of which folded, most of them large + 2 leaves of explanation in between. ¶ The exceedingly scarce first edition of Danielson's groundbreaking work on the Russian economic development, which is widely considered the bible of Russian liberal economic thought. Danielson here proposed a way for the Russian economy to consolidate itself without foreign money by - highly controversially - claiming that capitalist industrialization was possible without any change in the political system and emphasizing and defending the peasant class, which so many socialists of the time readily proclaimed doomed. Danielson's economic philosophy was not only pioneering in contemporary Russian economics, it also anticipated many solutions to problems that still face some of the Third World countries today.Danielson famously stated: "The problem facing us could have been summed up in the following terms: What should we do to bring our industry up to the level of Western industry, in order to prevent Russia from becoming a vassal of more advanced countries, and at the same time raise the living standards of the people as a whole? What we did, instead, was to identify large-scale modern industry with its cap … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ricketts, Charles [de Tabley, Lord]
London: Elkin Mathews and John Lane, 1893. First edition. Original green cloth with elaborate all-over gilt-stamped design on both covers and spine, by Ricketts. A marvelous Association Copy, INSCRIBED BY RICKETTS ON FRONT FREE FLY TO VIVIAN FORBES (1891-1937), English soldier, painter and poet in the early 20th century, known for his relationship with painter Glyn Philpot, and protégé of Charles Ricketts. Written in Ricketts' spare script: "To V.F. from C.R., 1919." The decorative bookplate of of Vivian Forbes (designed by Forbes) is affixed to front pastedown. Forbes died tragically at the age of 46, committing suicide following the death of Philpot. Like Philpot, Forbes' work was affected by concern over the rise of fascism in Europe, and he was immediately influenced by the 19th century Aestheticism movement, and painters like Charles Ricketts and Shannon, the former taking him on as a protégé. "We have taken a great liking to Forbes, the sensual beast who ate my strawberries at Chilham," wrote Ricketts to Thomas Lowinsky, in December 1918. According to Ricketts’ biographer, Forbes "brought out that side of Ricketts which yearned to guide younger men through the thickets of art and culture." From Paul van Capelleveen's excellent blog on Ricketts: (http://charlesricketts.blogspot.com): "Philpot's work was influenced by that of Ricketts and Shannon, and when the two older artists left Lansdowne House for Townshend House, Forbes and Philpot moved into their former flats and studios.

DOYLE, ARTHUR CONAN
Conan Doyle considers "action" over a dramatization of Sherlock Holmes. After inquiring about his correspondent's new book, Holmes asks Reid to do something for him. "A chap in Glasgow has dramatized Holmes and I am very sick about it. Would it bore you too much to attend one performance and let me know what it is like...." He asks Reid to send the program. "Another point is that I want to know whether my name appears on the posters. It is possible that I may take action in the matter...." The play which so annoyed Sherlock Holmes' creator was titled, "Sherlock Holmes: A Psychological Drama in Five Acts - a play by Charles Rogers. In December 1893, the play was performed at the Theatre Royal, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. It began touring on May 28, 1894 at the theatre Royal Glasgow with Holmes played ay the actor John Webb. Plot Summary from online source: https://www.arthur-conan-doyle.com/index.php/Sherlock_Holmes_(play_1893-1894) Wilton Hursher, a madman, takes refuge from the pursuit of the police in the house of a certain Dr. Watson. Here the maniac, in an interview with the doctor gives him a blow which knocks him senseless, and then carries him off to his (Hursher's) house. The shock has destroyed Watson's memory, and when Sherlock Holmes visits the house the doctor does not recognize him. Watson is even induced to agree to marry the madman's daughter, and when confronted with his own wife and child in the church cannot recollect them, and wants the bigamous ceremony to go on.

97 Volumes (bound in 69 Volumes). London, Offices of The Studio, 1893 - 1929. Quarto. c. 20000 pages with illustrations, photographs, original lithographs, engravings. Contemporary private Hardcover (Uniform deep blue buckram with gilt lettering on spinelabels). Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Only a few of the Volumes a little shaky. With the handwritten entry „A. Chester Beatty - 24 Kensington Palace Gardens - W. 8". The Studio was an illustrated fine arts and decorative arts magazine published in London from 1893 until 1964. The founder and first editor was Charles Holme. The full title was The Studio: an illustrated magazine of fine and applied art. The Studio exerted a major influence on the development of the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements. In 1964 it was absorbed into Studio International magazine. Holme was in the wool and silk trades, had travelled extensively in Europe and had visited Japan and the United States with Lasenby Liberty and his wife Emma. During his travels he had formed:... the idea of an art magazine crystallised around his recurring observation that the chief barrier between countries was language, and his belief that the more the culture of one part of the world could be brought „visually" to the attention of another, the greater the chance of international understanding and peace. Holme retired from trade in order to start The Studio. Holme had hoped to engage Lewis Hind as the editor of the new venture, but Hind went instead to William Waldorf Astor's Pall Mall Budget. He suggested Joseph Gleeson White as … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stevenson, Robert Louis
1893. One page, dated (by RLS) June 30th 1893. N.p. [but at Vailima Plantation, Apia, Samoa]. This letter is hand-addressed by Stevenson to: "John B. Day Esq. | 5 Blythwood Villas | Stroud Green | London N.", and reads as follows:~Dear Sir, I am unfortunately confined to the house by influenza, but as soon as I shall be able to go abroad, I shall institute inquiries for your son, and hope by next mail -- or the mail after -- to give you some intelligence. Yours truly [signed] Robert Louis Stevenson.~In the mid-1890s, John B[ellence?]. Day was buying and selling old books out of his residence at the above address. In an 1891 periodical he was referred to as "the only surviving member" of the old Day & Son (founded in London as Day & Co. ca. 1824), which earlier in the century had been the dominant British firm in the field of chromolithographic printing (even as "Lithographers to the Queen"); however the firm had failed in 1867, several years after its ill-advised decision to print Hungarian banknotes for Louis Kossuth, in advance of his planned revolution against the King of Hungary.~By the time of this letter, Robert Louis Stevenson had been living for several years with his family in Samoa (in self-exile, seeking relief from his lung disease). We have been unable to establish any relationship between RLS and John B. Day other than this correspondence -- in which Day had apparently asked RLS for help in locating his son, presumably thought to be in that part of the world. Although RLS here told Day that he would "institute inquiries" once his health allowed him t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Milano: Stab. Lit. A. Bertarelli. Wraps. Near Fine. Truly extraordinary trade catalogue for dolls, games and toys, with many bright chromolithographic color plates of great beauty. N.d., circa 1893. 4to. 28 by 22 cm. 42 plates, the first 28 of which are color plates. This catalogue was issued in conjunction with the company's factory expansion, and shortly following its success at the International Exhibition in Milan, 1891, and the Esposizione Italo-Americano in Genoa the following year. At the former, it received the highest honors, at the latter, a gold medal, and the proprietor, in the one-page prefatory comments -- the only text within the catalogue -- speaks of his extensive clientele in both Italy and America. His plant is pictured on the cover, and indeed shows that this was a business of considerable size for the day. Among the articles showcased are also doll accessories, dollhouses, furniture for dollhouses, rocking horses, billiards, croquet, swings, a puppet theater, performing monkeys, toy weaponry, mechanical toys, toy horses and stables, puppets, etc. We would emphasize that the color in the color plates is especially bright and dazzling, and this is a toy catalogue like none other that we have ever come across. Condition: light soiling and wear to the card thick wraps.

Tower Publishing Company 1893 First Edition. A very good copy in the original blue-green pictorial cloth, bevelled boards, spine ends and corners worn and chipped, the text block clean and tight. The extremely scarce first edition of this futuristic classic, FIRST EDITION stipulated on the title. The Angel of the Revolution: A Tale of the Coming Terror (1893) is a science fiction novel by English writer George Griffith. It was his first published novel and remains his most famous work. It was first published in Pearson's Magazine and was prompted by the success of The Great War of 1892 in Black and White magazine, which was itself inspired by The Battle of Dorking. A lurid mix of Jules Verne's futuristic air warfare fantasies, the utopian visions of News from Nowhere and the future war invasion literature of Chesney and his imitators, it told the tale of a group of terrorists who conquer the world through airship warfare. Led by a crippled, brilliant Russian Jew and his daughter, the 'angel' Natasha, 'The Brotherhood of Freedom' establish a 'pax aeronautica' over the earth after a young inventor masters the technology of flight in 1903. The hero falls in love with Natasha and joins in her war against society in general and the Russian Czar in particular [1]. It is characterised by what Michael Moorcock called its 'controlled imaginative flight', essentially socialist message and a strongly romantic air. Griffith's 'pro nihilist' stance was examined in a piece entitled "Terrorism in the Late Victorian Novel" by Barbara Arnett Melchiori which appeared in the The Modern Langua … [Click Below for Full Description]

Blake, William & William Butler Yeats and Edwin John Ellis [editors]
Bernard Quaritch, London, 1893. Three volumes. Large, thick octavo. Original green cloth, spines and upper covers elaborately decorated in pictorial gilt after designs by Blake, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Portrait, facsimiles, and plates. Some modest rubbing at extremities, but a quite bright, sound, very good, or better, set. First edition. One of five hundred sets comprising the regular paper issue. Controversial in its interpretation of Blake's texts, this work nonetheless remains, in this issue and binding, something of a landmark of 1890s book production. "The enthusiasm and comprehensiveness of this work are of considerable historical importance" - Bentley. Wade quotes Yeats's inscription in his own copy about the nature of this collaboration: "The writing of this book is mainly Ellis's, the thinking is as much mine as his. The biography is by him. He re-wrote and trebled in size a biography of mine. The greater part of the 'symbolic system' is my writing; the rest of the book was written by Ellis working over short accounts of the books by me, except in the case of the 'literary period' the account of the minor poems, & the account of Blake's art theories which are all his own except in so far as we discussed everything together."

TRAVEL JOURNAL: Miss Turner
Original leather bound journal; 9 by 12cm; 92 pages, with 41 watercolour or pen and ink drawings with accompanying manuscript text. The journal describes and illustrates the sea journey from England to China via Gibraltar, Malta, The Suez al, Aden, Ceylon and Penang, reaching Hong Kong on the 19th November 1893. Hong Kong Harbour: “The loveliest spot my eyes ever looked upon. Transparent green waters surrounded by hills rich in yellow, red and brown, with misty purple shadows”. Miss Turner then travelled by canal house boat Hongchow, where it would appear she was to take up missionary work. “What a state these poor people must live in! Night after night, you hear guns & crackers being let up at intervals - to frighten away evil spirits! And just now - having sent their ‘kitchen-gods’ up to heaven for a week - the whole night is hideous with these noises - in self protection I suppose.” Very good, all the images are fresh and the hand writing is legible. Spine of the journal defective. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Stevenson, Robert Louis
One page, dated (by RLS) June 30th 1893. N.p. [but at Vailima Plantation, Apia, Samoa]. This letter is hand-addressed by Stevenson to: "John B. Day Esq. | 5 Blythwood Villas | Stroud Green | London N.", and reads as follows:~Dear Sir, I am unfortunately confined to the house by influenza, but as soon as I shall be able to go abroad, I shall institute inquiries for your son, and hope by next mail -- or the mail after -- to give you some intelligence. Yours truly [signed] Robert Louis Stevenson.~In the mid-1890s, John B[ellence?]. Day was buying and selling old books out of his residence at the above address. In an 1891 periodical he was referred to as "the only surviving member" of the old Day & Son (founded in London as Day & Co. ca. 1824), which earlier in the century had been the dominant British firm in the field of chromolithographic printing (even as "Lithographers to the Queen"); however the firm had failed in 1867, several years after its ill-advised decision to print Hungarian banknotes for Louis Kossuth, in advance of his planned revolution against the King of Hungary.~By the time of this letter, Robert Louis Stevenson had been living for several years with his family in Samoa (in self-exile, seeking relief from his lung disease). We have been unable to establish any relationship between RLS and John B. Day other than this correspondence -- in which Day had apparently asked RLS for help in locating his son, presumably thought to be in that part of the world. Although RLS here told Day that he would "institute inquiries" once his health allowed him to "go abroad," i … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLAKE, WILLIAM; YEATS, WILLIAM BUTLER; ELLIS, EDWIN JOHN
London: Bernard Quaritch, 1893. First edition. FIRST EDITION EDITED BY YEATS, with beautiful lithographed reproductions of Blake's Prophetic Books. One of only 500 copies of the regular paper issue (out of a total of 650). Yeats "marked down William Blake as a master early on, and with Edwin Ellis produced a large-scale commentary on Blake's prophetic writings in 1893. While often erratic and idiosyncratic, it helped establish the importance of Blake's esoteric verse" (Dictionary of National Biography). "From 1889 to 1893 Yeats was involved with Edwin Ellis, a minor painter and poet, in a three-volume edition of Blake's works, with a memoir and interpretation of the symbolism. He was pleased to find that Blake's ideas harmonized with those of the Theosophists and the Hermetic Students of the Golden Dawn, for he now had the authority of a great poet for using occult material... Blake, in short, bore an astonishing resemblance to Yeats... Here was a lofty justifying precedent" (Richard Ellman, Yeats: The Man and the Masks).
 This set contains the likely the first reproduced illustrations of Blake's Prophetic Books and is the first collection to publish Blake's "Vala, or the Four Zoas".

 London: Bernard Quaritch, 1893. Quarto, original vibrant green cloth, spines and upper covers elaborately decorated in pictorial gilt with a figure inspired by the frontispiece of Blake's Songs of Experience. Complete with three portrait frontispieces and many illustrations and lithographed facsimiles, chiefly in volume III.
