[Salesman's Sample]. Jackson, William Henry
Chicago, 1894. About very good.. [40] leaves. Large folio. Original quarter cloth and thick paper wrappers, gilt lettered. A few small chips to wraps; rear upper corner torn away; minor wear at spine extremities. One plate with closed tear from fore-edge. Light soiling and occasional faint foxing; a few leaves with marginal dampstaining near lower corner. An apparent sample copy or salesman's dummy for the publication of W.H. Jackson's photographs of the Columbian Exposition in Chicago during 1893. Jackson was commissioned for the work by one of the chief architects of the White City, Daniel Burnham, and his official images were published in several editions and languages at the end of the 19th century. These editions all carried between sixty and eighty plates, and were usually bound in deluxe gilt boards, and are relatively uncommon, particularly in good, original condition. The present work contains one leaf of introductory text and thirty-nine plates of images within gilt card wrappers and a light cloth spine, and was evidently intended as a sample of the larger, heftier work to come. We find only one copy in OCLC whose description corresponds to that of the copy in hand, with the gilt caption title "The White City" on the front cover, located at the Canadian Centre for Architecture. A rare form of Jackson's images of the Chicago World's Fair.

(DICKENS, Charles.) ONWHYN, Thomas.
London: Albert Jackson,, 1894. 2 copies in variant states, small folio. Loose sheets as issued in original green printed wrappers. Housed together in a red cloth chemise within red cloth slipcase, spine lettered in gilt. Each with etched pictorial title-page and 12 plates by Thomas Onwhyn, the first copy with the plates coloured by hand, the second copy with proof impressions on India paper mounted on card. Very light peripheral creasing, else fine copies. First edition thus. Thomas Onwhyn designed 32 illustrations to accompany The Pickwick Papers, which were published in 1837. In 1847, Onwhyn began to design a set of 12 etchings to accompany the new cheap edition of Pickwick. However his 1837 illustrations were reissued as lithographs, and he abandoned the project. The family sold the etchings to Albert Jackson, who reissued them in various formats in 1894, two of these formats present here. It is possible that F. W. Pailthorpe hand-coloured the etchings in the first copy - a pencilled note in the chemise states thus. Gimbel H1130. [Attributes: First Edition]

Edison, Thomas
1894. 1 p., in pencil. 4to. Old folds, lightly and evenly toned, two expert repairs in upper margin. 1 p., in pencil. 4to. Edison and the Birth of Film. A letter dating from the birth year of motion picture exhibition, from the inventor of the medium, Edison, to one of the first motion picture distributors and producers, Norman C. Raff, mentioning a third important figure in the history of film, Otway Latham. In full:"My Dear Raff - I have had a long talk with Latham on the subject of prize f[ight] machines and while I do not know your ideas on the subject It seems to me that if both L & yourself could enter into some understanding mutually beneficial it would be a good stroke, and stop friction all around. Yours Edison" Norman C. Raff (1857-1925) provided a crucial early investment in film when he purchased in 1894 a number of Kinetoscope machines, or "peep-show" boxes, developed by Edison to exhibit his new motion picture technology. In April of that same year he helped open the first Kinetoscope parlour, on lower Broadway in Manhattan, to enormous success. A few months later, Otway Latham (1868-1906) made a crucial technological advancement, increasing the Kinetscope's capacity and reducing the camera speed such that he could exhibit boxing matches through a series of abbreviated, one-minute rounds using specially modified Kinetoscope machines, the "p[rize] fight machines" Edison refers to in the letter. The first fight produced by Latham, between Brooklyn boxers Mike Leonard and Jack Cushing, was recorded in the summer of 1894 at Edison's Black Maria film studio in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Upper Mall, Hammersmith, Middlesex: Printed by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press, 1894. Large 8vo (8 1/2" x 11 1/2"), original limp vellum with brown cloth ties, title in gilt direct to spine; printed on handmade paper, with Greek letters designed by Selwyn Image for Messrs. Macmillan & Co.; woodcut title with full woodcut page-border, numerous woodcut initials within the text; pp. [xiv], 81, [xiii]; one pair of ties missing, with slight darkening to spine; upper cover beginning to splay a touch; internally a beautifully clean copy, just the odd spot. A near fine example, scarce in the original binding. Provenance: with the previous Ex Libris of Margaret and John Streeter to p.1. One of only 250 copies on paper, from a total edition of 258. Printed in Troy type in black and red, argument and speakers in margins in Chaucer type; the only Kelmscott book with Greek uncial type, designed by Selwyn Image. Atalanta in Calydon was Swinburne's attempt to marry traditional Greek tragedy with a modern, Victorian style. Originally published in 1865, it was to become one of his more famous works, and was based upon the remnants of a lost play by Euripides - the Meleager fragment. The sentiment behind the tragedy was a somber one. Swinburne had, a few years previously, lost his sister Edith, and twelve months later was struggling with the additional grief of losing his friend and idol, the poet Walter Savage Landor, to whom this volume is dedicated. In a letter to Lady Treveleyan, composed shortly before the 1865 publication, he wrote: "In spite of the funereal circumstances which I … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boston: The Boston Book Company, 1894. Hardcover. 8vo (8.5" x 6") navy cloth, gilt title on spine and upper cover. At cover, "A Brave Black Regiment." Frontis., [6], xvi, 452 pp., numerous b&w plates and maps, 1 15" x 4.75" folding map, 1 5.5" x 15" folding map. Second edition of this important regimental history, first published in 1891, revised and corrected, with an appendix on the treatment of African American POWs. An account of the first regiment consisting entirely of free black volunteers from the North, and the most renowned of the African American units to fight in the Civil War. Commanded by Boston abolitionist Robert Gould Shaw and including two of Frederick Douglass's sons, the regiment is remembered for assailing Fort Wagner (at the entrance of Charleston Harbor) in 1863-during which it lost the battle, and half of the regiment was killed or wounded. Weeks later, the regiment successfully captured the fort. The unit's success led to the creation of more black Union regiments. The 54th Mass. was the subject of the movie Glory (1989). "To the present generation of the race from which the Fifty-Fourth Massachusetts volunteers was recruited, the history of the regiment should have peculiar interest. The author's treatment of the subject is simple and straightforward, with hardly a word of eulogy; and yet the plain narrative of the soldierly achievement of this black regiment is better evidence of the manly qualities of the race than volumes of rhetoric and panegyric could convey" (Publisher's preface, p. ix).

1894. Very Good. On offer is one (1) of a pair of year books, the Yale Pot-Pourri (the other being the Yale Banner) that list Nikola Tesla's Honorary Master of Arts degree of 1894. Tesla was at the height of his powers and recognized as one of the most important figures in electricity even at that time. His Yale degree was one of several reported honorary degrees, many of which are displayed in the Tesla museum in Belgrade. The book is in very good condition, with some wear to the binding at the top and bottom. The gold stamping is excellent. The corners are a little worn. The pages are crisp and clean with only a few minor creases. This is primary source material published at the time of the granting of the degree and published in limited quantity. It would be a great addition to a serious Tesla collection. Sales tax may apply and US shipping is included in the price. [Attributes: First Edition]

KELMSCOTT PRESS.) SWINBURNE, Algernon Charles.
Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1894. Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press,, 1894. A fine copy of ""one of the loveliest examples"" of the Press's work Quarto. Original limp vellum, yapp edges, spine lettered in gilt, blue silk ties. Housed in a near-contemporary blue morocco pull-off case. Printed in red and black with elaborate woodcut title page and woodcut initials and borders throughout. Bookplate of Grolier Club book collector and printing press manufacturer Robert Hoe III (1839-1909) and of Brian Douglas Sitwell to front pastedown. Bookplate of Richard D. Friedlander loosely inserted. Minor inevitable rippling to pastedowns, vellum well-preserved, contents clean and bright, a fine copy in the rubbed case, bottom panel slightly loose. First Kelmscott edition, one of 250 copies on paper; a further 8 copies printed on vellum were also issued. Swinburne was a warm admirer of the Kelmscott Press books, and "when Atalanta (which was first published in 1865) was reprinted by Morris, Swinburne wrote to him that it was 'certainly one of the loveliest examples of even your incomparable press'" (Peterson). While the woodcut opening, initials and borders are by William Morris, the Greek type used for the quotations and dedicatory poems was designed by Selwyn Image, with the technical assistance of Emery Walker. This is the only instance in the Kelmscott Press books of Morris using a type not designed himself. Franklin, p. 214; Peterson A25; Ransom, Kelmscott 25.
