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.

ROSSETTI, Christina.
London: Macmillan & Co, 1893. London: Macmillan & Co,, 1893. Illustrated by Laurence Housman. Duodecimo in sixes (178 x 101 mm). Finely bound in 1898 at The Doves Bindery to a design by Cobden-Sanderson and so signed in gilt to rear turn-in, spine in compartments with raised bands, gilt titles direct and floral gilt tooling, sides delicately panelled with gilt rules, points and floral tools, turn-ins richly gilt, all edges gilt. Housed in a marbled leather-entry slipcase. Illustrated title page and 12 plates by Laurence Housman, and several vignettes in the text. Spine sunned, some very light rubbing to corners, but a near fine copy. First Housman-illustrated edition, trade issue, here presented in a beautiful and notably early Doves Binding. This fantastical narrative poem, which was first published 1862 with illustrations by Christina's brother Dante Gabriel, has eluded classification, having been interpreted variously as a feminist tract, a capitalist critique, an allegory for drug addiction, and a children's story. The illustrator Laurence Housman (1865-1959) worked in an intricate art-nouveau style. The brother of the poet A. E. Housman, Laurence was a committed writer himself, and was the co-founder of the Men's League for Women's Suffrage. This copy has a handsome gilt morocco collector's bookplate to front pastdown, with the legend: "Otium Sine Literis Mors Est" - Leisure without literature is death.

Born on January 11th 1862 thusly 30 when she began writing January 1st 1893 from Washington DC. In a tight small hand Miss Rusk well filled the notebook with details her life with clarity and an erudition speaking of a fine education. She also writes of significant times but perhaps of particular interest to researchers and historians of late 19th Century Wisconsin will be the awful last days of the Governor's life: "Papa had a bad night but I guess is some better...Papa has been very sick all day and tonight is no better. Charity is here and the Dr is to stay all night...Some improvement in papa today but he is very weak. I am to sit up with him tonight. Papa had a very bad night and a very hard weak spell about three. Dr Lull took himself off home at one o'clock in spite of all...I sat up until half past five so am done up...Papa was nervous last night so took a capsule and rested some and today has been so much more like himself. Papa is alarmingly ill and we have telegraphed for Dr Hamilton. He felt badly all day and about five this afternoon he had a slight chill so I telegraphed for Dr Schreiner to come down for the night. Dr Golt came up about 6 and papa's temperature had run up to 103. We are worried to death...Dr Golt came about 8 and Dr Hamilton got here at a little before nine.

The anonymous translation is that of Thomas Flloyd, first published as Tartarian Tales: or, a Thousand and One Quarters of Hours (London: Tonson, 1759). The publisher, H. S. Nichols, had, in 1888, set up in business with Smithers, described by the latter's biographer James G.

En 1911, Valery Larbaud, devenu l'ami intime, complota une surprise à son aîné, Léon-Paul Fargue. Il s'agissait de lui offrir dans une édition de luxe, son poème "Tancrède", publié en 1895 dans le supplément français d'une revue allemande, ayant eu peu d'audience, et presque oublié depuis lors. Larbaud, qui ne possédait pas le texte, obligea son auteur sous un prétexte fallacieux à en faire une copie à la Bibliothèque nationale. Après quoi il confia le manuscrit à son imprimeur de Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule. Le 20 février sortait des presses, un livre à la couverture de papier Ingres blanc satiné avec le titre en caractères dorés. Tancrède, réssuscité, ravit son auteur qui s'empressa d'écrire ce billet : « Mon cher Valery. L'éclair : Une aubépine dans le ciel, etc. ! Des amis me montre l'annonce formidablement élogieuse de Tancrède dans La Phalange. Vieux Fingeat va ! Et il paraît qu'ils le savaient tous depuis pas mal de temps déjà. Mais comment ???

Princeton went on to win the game 6-0 and to be named the national champion that year. 124 pp. Many photos, of football teams, including, horrors, Harvard's, Yale campus, even one of Harvard, but sorry Princetonians, no pictures of your campus, not even Nassau Hall, glossary of college colors and college yells for a daunting number of schools, including some obscure and/or defunct ones (at least, name-wise), five pages setting forth the rules of what was then a relatively new and rapidly evolving game.One color image of a Spalding football, a few colored paper leaves. Many ads, which can be interesting in and of themselves. Some penciling reflecting the game's results on the Princeton scorecard and the facing page has a bunch of penciled autographs (not of the players). Otherwise, light wear.

THOMSON, John.
London, J. Thomson, 70a Grosvenor St., [1893]. Measuring 210 by 140 mm (mounting board 380 by 305 mm); out of the original oak frame with silver coloured wooden mounts and wooden back, original glass, only light discolouration and spotting to board, the photograph itself very well preserved. Unrecorded and signed three-quarter length portrait of the Norwegian explorer. We could only find out that a print of this photo was used on the front page of Illustrated London News of June 24, 1893, a copy of which is now joined with the original photograph. The contemporary paper cutting pasted onto the wooden back panel tells us who commissioned the photo: 'One is glad to hear that a result of the Nansen lectures is to bountifully replenish the coffers of the very enterprising Bournemouth Photographic Society ... By the way, I only mention that each member of the committee was presented to Dr. Nansen, who received them very cordially, and requested their acceptance of his photo bearing his autograph. And the Doctor is by no means lavish of his autograph. A Norwegian young lady resident in Bournemouth requested him at the close of his lectures to write his name in her autograph-book, but the Doctor politely, but firmly declined'. We were able to find very few archival traces of Nansen's lecture, and Christchurch Historical Society dates the event to 1897. 'John Thomson was one of the most successful Victorian photographers. For ten years between 1862 and 1872 he travelled in the Far East, establishing portrait studios in Singapore and Hong Kong, as well as recording the topography an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Morris, William.
Pr. by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press, 1893. Lovely example of a Kelmscott small-format press production: the first of a series of four medieval French romances both translated and printed by Morris, this one about the lovely and virtuous but cruelly defamed Jehane, who regains her good name by masquerading as her husband's squire. Morris printed a total of 365 copies, 350 of which were on paper, as is this example; the opening double-page spread features one of his unmistakable white-on-black grapevine borders, and the subsequent black-letter text is highlighted with decorative capitals and with subject headings printed in red. Binding: Stunning signed binding by Leonard Mounteney, exhibition finisher for Rivière & Son: full green levant morocco, covers and spine lavishly gilt-tooled with red morocco floral onlays. Board edges with gilt roll; inside, gilt dentelles and doublures of red watered silk. Top edge gilt.

Rossetti, Dante Gabriel.
Printed by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press; published by Ellis & Elvey, 1893. An early example from William Morris's series of beautiful productions accomplished at his Kelmscott Press -- and an outstanding combination of Morris' and Rossetti's Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics. This collection of some of Morris's dear friend Rossetti's most important ballad and narrative verse was printed eleven years after the poet's death using Kelmscott's Golden type in black and a good deal of red; the characteristic woodcut Kelmscott grapevine borders surround both the title-page (printed on the verso of fol. [a]2) and the first page of text opposite, with the rest of the volume offering additional, floriate, woodcut initials designed by Morris. This is one of only 310 copies printed on paper (an additional six were done on vellum). It was to be followed in the next year by a Kelmscott collection of Rossetti's sonnets and lyrical poems.

Original yellow cloth, spines lettered in gilt, spines and front covers stamped in gilt with floral patterns, publisher's device to rear covers in gilt, cloth page markers, top edges gilt. With illustrated frontispieces and 12 similar plates, black and white illustrations by Beardsley. Toning to spines, extending onto sides, extremities worn, pale foxing to covers. A very good copy. First edition, one of 1,500 ordinary paper copies, of a total edition of 1,800 copies. In 1892, seeking to emulate the books of the Kelmscott Press, John M. Dent commissioned the twenty-year-old Beardsley to produce this edition of Le Morte D'Arthur. The 351 designs appearing in the first edition required eighteen months for the artist to complete. Bored with the project, Beardsley at last refused to complete Dent's original projection of 500 drawings. Of this, Beardsley's first major work, John Lewis states: "In Le Morte D'Arthur Beardsley learnt his job, but the result is no bungling student's work … If he had never illustrated another book, this edition of Morte D'Arthur could stand as a monument of decorative book illustration" (Lewis, The Twentieth Century Book, pp. 148-9).

Original photograph depicting Tolstoy in wheelchair with his doctor Nikitin next to him is pasted next to the title page by the relatives of the doctor. The autograph is inscribed to Dmitry Nikitin (1874-1960), his family doctor. ''A very attentive person and knows everything that medicine knows now'', Tolstoy who didn't like doctors very much respectfully wrote about him. For many years Nikitin was close friends with the Tolstoy family. Son of the the priest from a small village, Nikitin became the first family doctor of Lev Nikolaevich, and later treated M. Gorky. Beginning in the 1850s, Lev Nikolaevich had to turn to doctors both about his illnesses and about the illnesses of his children. But at the same time he believed that medicine does not see the essence of the problem, is engaged in the study of bacteria, but it is necessary to pay attention to the person himself, his soul. The writer did not differ in good health, but resisted the diseases, relying on the spiritual and natural defenses of the body, tried to dispense with medicines, and be treated with folk remedies. But in 1902 Tolstoy fell seriously ill … [Click Below for Full Description]

In 1907, another baby is mentioned, however with no further identifying information. Each diary contains detailed descriptions of the days principal events. Most revolve around the operations of the farm household. Often, her mother comes over to help her. Her days begin early and are filled with daily tasks: "I baked pies, cookies and bread today. I finished Nell's outing dress. I mended some this evening. I made some new sleeves for baby's nighty" [Feb 16, 1893]. We done some baking this forenoon. I made some more pies this afternoon so I would not have to bake tomorrow. I ironed the colored clothes, the girls took the tacks out of the carpet tonight" [May 24, 1893].

Housed in a marbled leather-entry slipcase. Illustrated title page and 12 plates by Laurence Housman, and several vignettes in the text. Spine sunned, some very light rubbing to corners, but a near fine copy. First Housman-illustrated edition, trade issue, here presented in a beautiful and notably early Doves Binding. This fantastical narrative poem, which was first published 1862 with illustrations by Christina's brother Dante Gabriel, has eluded classification, having been interpreted variously as a feminist tract, a capitalist critique, an allegory for drug addiction, and a children's story. The illustrator Laurence Housman (1865-1959) worked in an intricate art-nouveau style. The brother of the poet A. E. Housman, Laurence was a committed writer himself, and was the co-founder of the Men's League for Women's Suffrage. This copy has a handsome gilt morocco collector's bookplate to front pastdown, with the legend: "Otium Sine Literis Mors Est" - Leisure without literature is death.

New York: The Cassell Publishing Co., [1893].. Octavo, pp. [i-ii] iii-iv [1] 2-320, flyleaves at front and rear, original decorated mustard cloth, front panel stamped in brown and black, spine panel stamped in black and gold, rear panel stamped in blind. First edition. Like some copies, including both copyright deposit copies, the advertisements at back (leaves [21] 3-8) are excised. The second of two collections of Bierce's short stories published during his lifetime and one of the author's less common first editions. An important book. "Bierce is the finest American author of supernatural horror fiction in the second half of the nineteenth century, clearly dominating the period in between Poe and Lovecraft, and in some ways, a superior craftsman to either of them. That his reputation lags theirs is partly due to the strengths of his own style, which is spare and elliptical (i.e., deflationary) where theirs is lush and hyperbolic (i.e., inflationary). It is the occupational hazard of the satirist, who bows down to nothing, to have no one bow down to him. Bitter Bierce, as he was tagged by his peers, had the sardonic detachment of the newspaper man who has observed more than his share of suffering and depravity. This gave him mainly a detachment from dogmatism. He never lost that warm interest in either observation or speculation, fuels for the creative engine, but he kept each in its own province. As he writes in the last sentence of this book, 'It is not my duty to indue facts and theories with affinity.'

Watson, H[enry] B[rereton] Marriott
Methuen and Co., London, 1893. Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [1] 2-232 + 16-page publisher's catalogue dated "October 1892" inserted at rear, late nineteenth-century three-quarter brown polished calf and marbled boards, spine tooled in gold with flowers, black leather spine labels, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. First edition. Thirty-two short stories. "Mixed collection, mostly contes cruels in an archaic setting, also 'The Devil of the Marsh,' a classic horror tale of a paludal Circe." - Robert Knowlton. "The Brazen Cross" is a supernatural tale about the intersection of Christian and pagan spirituality in modern England. "The House of Dishonour" has some notably weird and Gothic atmosphere. In "The Sword of the Kadi" a lover plays a curious board game against the ruler (the Kadi) to determine whether he will be allowed to marry a certain maiden. "The Dead Immortals" is a fanciful essay about the survival of ancient nymphs and spirits. "This Body of Death" and "The Shadow on the Year" are meditative and macabre sketches in the tradition of the memento mori. "Over the Fire" is a meditation on the propensity of fires to elicit daydreaming. The author wrote the polar femme fatale fantasy, MARAHUNA (1888), as well as other fantastic material. "Probably more talented than is generally recognized." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction, p. 514. Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 776.

MONET (Claude)
Giverny, mardi 12 décembre 1893. 1 f. (130 x 215) en 1 page : 27 lignes manuscrites à l'encre violette sur papier à en-tête « Giverny par Vernon Eure » imprimé en rouge, enveloppe conservée. Cela fait dix ans que Monet est installé à Giverny lorsqu'il écrit cette lettre au critique d'art Gustave Geffroy (1855-1926), trois jours avant que ce dernier inaugure dans la Revue encyclopédique par un éloge de son ami une série d'articles sur l'impressionnisme. Par cette missive, le peintre lui annonce qu'il viendra le voir au siège du quotidien auquel il collabore depuis l'origine, La Justice, fondé en 1880 et dirigé par Georges Clemenceau. Les attentats anarchistes défrayent alors la chronique, une bombe ayant été lancée le samedi précédent à la tribune de la chambre des députés par Auguste Vaillant, dont la manchette de La Justice du jour même où Monet écrit sa lettre annonce qu'il est passé aux aveux.Monet y évoque également « les fameux papiers d'Olympia », cette oeuvre de Manet qu'il a voulu faire entrer au Louvre. Présentée à l'Exposition universelle de 1889, elle manqua d'être acquise par un collectionneur américain qui proposa 20 000 francs pour l'acquérir. De peur de la voir quitter la France, Claude Monet, soutenu par Octave Mirbeau, lança en juillet, une large souscription pour offrir le tableau au Louvre. La somme fut réunie le 7 février 1890 grâce à des contributeurs tels que Caillebotte, Durand-Ruel, Huysmans, Mirbeau et bien sûr Monet ; d'autres refusèrent, comme Zola, Fauré ou Cassat. Le tableau fut d'abord présenté au Musée du Luxembourg, puis, sur décision finale … [Click Below for Full Description]
