        Autograph letter signed ("F. Volkhovsky"). London, 15. X. 1894.

      1894. 8vo. 2¾ pp. on bifolium. To an unidentified lady: "[...] I should be glad to visit Bristol where I lectured some 3 years ago with much success. I do not gather from your letter what kind of address do you expect from me: is it a lecture on my experiences in prison + exile, or drawing-room speech on the political situation of Russia? My fee is, generally speaking, 10 guineas per lecture, travelling expenses included, I mean for institutions which can pay it. But this fee may vary according to different circumstances [...] I should easily come in November [...] I should prefer however to visit Bristol before the 21st, as after that date I am busy with preparing the coming No. ov 'Free Russia' [...]". - Some duststaining.

Thorold and an Indian, Bower crossed into Western Tibet and proceeded towards Lhasa in disguise. But before he reached the city he was discovered by Tibetan officials, who flatly denied his party permission to enter Lhasa. In the end, he had to continue eastwards, leaving the country altogether. However, he did receive the Royal Geographical Society's Gold Medal in 1894 "for his remarkable journey across Tibet." His topics include: the journey from Simla to the frontier; being deserted by their guides; meeting nomads; the neighbourhood of Lhasa; neogitations with Lhasa officials; marching northwards; neighbourhood of Chaimdo; Garthok; Lithang; Ta Chen Lu; through China back to India; the religion, country, people, etc. Indexed.

        Cheret, Jules - Palais de Glace.

      Kleurenlithografie uit 1894 ontworpen door Jules Chéret. Gesigneerd in de druk rechtsonder.Gedrukt door Chéret"s drukkerij Chaix. Dit blad is een verkleining van het op de straten van Parijs hangende affiche en verscheen als bijlage van de Courier Français.Jules Roques, de eigenaar van Le Courier Français, was een van de grootste aanhangers van het werk van Chéret. Op een gegeven moment huurde Roques het enorme gordijn van het Theatre des Ambassadeurs, een van de grootste muziek hallen in Paris, en behing dit van boven tot onder met affiches van Chéret, met daarboven de naam van zijn blad. Ook gaf hij regelmatig affiches uit als bijlagen van zijn Courier Français, kleiner van formaat maar van de zelfde kwaliteit.De geneugten van Parijs zijn nergens zo evident als in de affiches gemaakt voor het Palais de Glace. Chéret ontwierp het ene meesterwerk na het andere voor hét ijs paleis van de Belle Epoque. Op dit affiche zien we een van zijn statuesque "Chérettes"' over het ijs zwieren, de toeschouwer kan weinig anders doen dan haar bewonderen.In 1894 opent het Palais de Glace haar deuren aan de Champs Elysées. Behalve voor de ijsbaan, gaat men er naar toe om te zien en gezien te worden. Het wordt the-place-to-be in Parijs. Ook in Brussel, Wenen, Londen en elders in Europa worden dergelijke schaatspaleizen geopend.In de 20e eeuw verliest het Palais de Glace gaandeweg haar aantrekkingskracht en moet in 1980 sluiten. Anno 2008 is in het monumentale gebouw het Théatre du Rond-Point gevestigd.Prijs: € 1.250,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        THE YELLOW BOOK - An Illustrated Quarterly (1894-1897 13 volumi tutto il pubblicato), LONDON, Mathews & Lane, 1894

      1894. 16,5 x 20, bella e raffinata legatura editoriale in giallo, con piatti e dorsi figurati, tutti sono in buone condizioni, molti fogli sono ancora chiusi e tutte le tavole fuori testo sono protette da veline. Il colore giallo delle copertine venne scelto VOLUTAMENTE dall'editore per dare un tocco di "trasgressione" ai lettori "dell'Inghilterra puritana di fine '800" (Anche le "donnine" veneziane vestivano di giallo) Questa famosa rivista artistica inglese ha avuto una storia polemica che ha coinvolto l'amicizia tra BEARDSLEY AUBREY 1871-1898 (Il quale ha illustrato magistralmente alcune copertine delle prime 4 annate ed anche con num. tav. fuori testo all'interno, in tutti i primi 4 volumi, precedente la sua scomparsa) e OSCAR WILDE. Beardsley aveva in precedenza illustrato il famoso testo "Salomè" per Wilde, e le cronache del tempo non sono proprio categoriche nel sottilineare "l'amichevole frequentazione", ma l'opinione pubblica aveva già emesso la sentenza. I giornali del tempo riferiscono che quando Wilde venne arrestato ed imprigionato, chiese di passare dal suo studio, dove ritirò un volume di The Yellow Book e con esso sottobraccio entro' in carcere (anche per sottolineare pubblicamente l'ammirazione per la rivista stessa). Prescindendo da questi riferimenti, la rivista è di ottima qualità sia per le illustrazioni di altri valenti artisti (decine di tav. f.t.) che i contributi letterari (Beerbohm, John Buchan, Elia D'Arcy, Joh Davidson, Richard Garnett ed altri.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Paris, 7. V. 1894.

      1894. 4 SS. (Doppelblatt, im Falz durchgerissen). 8vo. An einen unbekannten Adressaten, der ihn nach seinen "inneren Beziehungen zur Musik" befragt hatte: "Hochgeehrter Herr, Wenn ich Ihre Frage nach meinen inneren Beziehungen zur Musik erschöpfend beantworten wollte, müßte ich Ihnen eigentlich eine bis ins Einzelne gehende Geschichte meines Lebens und Selbstcharakteristik liefern, da die Musik thatsächlich mit meinem ganzen geistigen Werden und Sein auf das Innigste verflochten ist. Ich beschränke mich darauf, Ihnen zu sagen, daß das Schöne mir zuerst in musikalischer Gestalt entgegengetreten ist. Mein erstes Gedicht schrieb ich, zwölf Jahre alt, nachdem ich die Mondschein-Sonate gehört hatte, die man mir, auf meine ungestüme Bitte, dreimal hintereinander hatte vorspielen müssen. Als ich, fünfzehn Jahre alt, Mozarts 'Don Juan' zum erstenmal hörte, floh der Schlaf mich drei Nächte lang und ich glaubte fortwährend die Orchesterbegleitung zum Auftreten der Statue des Kommandeurs zu hören. Ich glaube nicht, daß ich jemals eine Aufführung der Neunten Symphonie versäumt habe, wenn sie an meinem Wohnort stattfand; und doch fürchte ich sie eigentlich, denn sie wühlt mich in allen Tiefen so furchtbar auf, daß ich tagelang nicht zur Ruhe komme; so wirkt sie noch heute auf mich, obschon ich jeden Takt von ihr auswendig kann. Ich führe ein Leben des Kampfes und erfahre viel Bitteres und Schmerzliches. Es gibt aber die Empörung, den Zorn, die Kränkung nicht, die nicht sofort verschwänden, wenn mir meine Schwester ein Lied von Schumann, etwa 'Ich grolle nicht' oder 'Aus meinen Thränen sprießen' singt. Alle Gemeinheit der Menschen ist dann vergessen, mein eigenes Ich löst sich in Liebe und Wollaut [!] und mir ist, als wäre ich auf irgend einem Stern, himmelweit von allen Leidenschaften und Interessen, die sonst das Gewebe meines Daseins bilden. Aus der Musik quellen mir unvergleichliche Tröstungen und Anregungen. Der Drang, den wogenden, unbestimmten Emotionen, welche die Musik in mir wachruft, eine feste Form zu geben, hat oft genug meinem Schaffen die Richtung gewiesen. Um nur ein Beispiel anzuführen: mein Roman 'Die Krankheit des Jahrhunderts' ist wesentlich aus der Stimmung hervorgegangen, in die mich einmal das unter eigenthümlichen Umständen gehörte Lied 'Freut euch des Lebens' versetzt hat. Um meine Anschauungen kurz zusammenzufassen: ich würde es, trotz meiner mannigfachen anderen geistigen Interessen, für die erschreckendste Verarmung meines Lebens halten, wenn ich auf Musik verzichten müßte. Glauben Sie, hochgeehrter Herr, an die vorzügliche Hochachtung Ihres ergebensten Dr. M. Nordau". - Nordau war seit 1892 Mitstreiter Herzls; seit 1880 wohnte er als praktischer Armenarzt und Gynäkologe in Paris. 1897 Organisator des Basler ersten Zionistenkongresses, war er Hauptautor des sog. Basler Programms und eine der führenden Gestalten der frühen zionistischen Bewegung. - In lila Tinte; kleine Randeinrisse.

        REPORT ON INDIANS TAXED AND NOT TAXED IN THE UNITED STATES (EXCEPT ALASKA) AT THE ELEVENTH CENSUS: 1890.

      Washington. 1894. - vi,[2],683pp. plus twenty-five maps (three of them large, colored, folding maps) and 203 plates, consisting of twenty in color (two folding), twenty- five uncolored lithographs, and 158 photographic plates. Large, thick quarto. Modern three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Several small tears to edges of leaves, light scattered soiling and wear. Very good. One of the most important and exhaustive treatments of the American Indian in the 19th century. As American Indians had not been treated in detail in previous censuses, it was decided under the administration of Superintendent Robert Porter to prepare this mammoth undertaking, which pays scrupulous, detailed attention to the present state of the American Indian of the times. Included are discussions of Indian populations by state, status reports concerning life on the reservations, disbursement of populations on and off reservations, progress in schooling and employment, etc. Virtually every aspect of the topic is at least considered in this work, if not investigated in depth. The highly prized lithograph color plates of Indian life by noted artists are the best such works undertaken in a government publication, and are of exceptional quality. The scores of photographic plates show tribal leaders, delegations, homes, schools, food preparation, craft making, artifacts, etc., and provide an outstanding visual catalogue of the tribes near the turn of the 20th century.

        Climbing and Exploration in the Karakoram - Himalayas. With illustrations by A.D. McCormick.

      THE FIRST MAJOR ATTEMPT TO EXPLORE THE KARAKORAM. CONWAY, William Martin Climbing and Exploration in the Karakoram - Himalayas. With illustrations by A.D. McCormick. T. Fisher Unwin, 1894. 3 Volumes bound in 4. Large 8vo. pp. xix, 360: xv, 361 - 709: viii, 126; portrait frontispiece in vol. 1, 300 illustrations plus duplicate proofs, 3 folding maps in separate volume. All volumes uniformly bound in beige cloth, maroon morocco labels, text volumes slight darkening to spines; a Very Good set. Number 73 of 150 Copies Signed by the Author. William Conway (1856 - 1937) developed an interest in mountaineering whilst at Cambridge and became a member of the Alpine Club in 1877. Although a typical Victorian in his wide ranging interests, he was a keen bibliophile and a lover of the fine arts, later becoming Roscoe Professor of Art at University College, Liverpool. Conway was in no sense an amateur climber. He took as his model Edward Whymper's expedition to the Great Andes of the Equator, which had already demonstrated how a scientific mountaineering expedition should be organised, and the importance Conway attached to the separately published scientific reports clearly reflects this ambition. As W.A.B. Coolidge observed in the Pall Mall Gazette: "The book is not merely the narrative of the best organised and most successful mountaineering expedition as yet made, it is a most valuable and minute account, based on first-hand evidence, of a most fascinating region of the heaven-soaring Himalayas." A scarce account of a remarkable achievement. Neate C103; Yakushi C143.

        Rapports commerciaux des agents diplomatiques et consulaires de France [...]. Année 1894. N 174. Perse. Mouvement commercial des principaux ports persans du golfe Persique en 1892-1893. (Paris, Dupont), 1894.

      1894. Large 8vo. 21, (1) pp., final blank. Modern green leather binding with red marbled endpapers. Rare French consular report on the manufactures and commerce of Persia (now Iran), providing a detailed account of the region's principal produce in the late 19th century. Among the principal commodities imported to Persia are coffee (from Arabia), pearls (from the pearl banks of Bahrain), and - remarkably - petroleum (from Russia). A British exploration company is said to be prospecting for oil in the country, but "so far without any practical result": only in 1908 would large quantities of oil be discovered at Masjed Soleyman (today, Iran possesses the world's fourth-largest oil reserves). Exports include dried fruits and opium as well as pearls and mother-of-pearl (largely also originating from Bahrein). Imports from France are said to be virtually nil, and a lengthy paragraph is devoted to the means by which commerce with the Gulf might be boosted. - Paper browned and brittle, rebound with repairs to gutter; title page slightly cracked..

        Pithecanthropus erectus. Eine menschenaehnliche Uebergangsform aus Java. Mit Zwei tafeln und Drei in den Text gedruckten Figuren. [AND] An original photo of the type locality at Trinil, Java, most probably by Eugène Dubois himself.

      Batavia, Landesdruckerei, 1894. Large 4to (32.2 x 25.9 cm). Title page, [ii], 31 pp., two plates (one with photos of a skull, the other a tinted lithograph of bones), two text engravings. Blind quarter cloth over original printed boards.= Unique dedication copy of the true first edition of this ground breaking work in human evolution, being the first unambiguous record of "the missing link", a human species decidedly older and more primitive than Homo sapiens, based on well-preserved fossils found at Trinil near the Bengawan [Bengavian] Solo river in east-central Java. The Dutch anatomist, anthropologist and palaeontologist Marie Eugène François Thomas Dubois (1858-1940) was the first to deliberately search for hominid fossils, and the first to be successful at it. Dubois' discovery was proof that humans were as much the subject of evolution as any other animal or plant. This edition precedes the edition from "Jaarboek van het Mijnwezen" and its offprint, which were both published in 1895. Dubois immediately realized the great importance of his discovery and could not wait for the "Jaarboek" to be published, let alone for a thorough description of all the mammalian fossils found at the Trinil site. In the preface, dated January 1894, Dubois stated "Für die Abfassung einer einigermaassen vollständigen Beschreibung ist die Vergleichung der gesammelten Fossilien mit ähnlichen Sammlungen, namentlich in europäischen Museen... erforderlich - und so wird die Veröffentlichung jener Beschreibung und der in mancher Beziehung wichtigen allgemeineren Untersuchungsergebnisse wahrscheinlich nog längere Zeit ausbleiben müssen. Die in der vorliegende Abhandlung beschriebene Form is jedoch von zo ganz besonderem Interesse, und giebt zu Schlüssen von so grosser und allgemeiner Bedeutung Anlass, dass... sie schon jetzt zu bearbeiten und der Oeffentlichkeit zu überlieferen". It took Dubois and his fossils many years to convince the majority of the scientific world of the importance of these findings, and today it is universally regarded as a cornerstone in human palaeontology and evolution. This edition was printed at and published by the "Landesdruckerei" [actually Landsdrukkerij in Batavia, or modern day Jakarta]. Very few copies of this edition are known to exist. Provenance: on the front free endpaper, Dubois wrote in a neat hand "Met broederlijke groet van den schrijver" [with brotherly regards from the author]. An oblong albumen print (11.8 x 15.8 cm) of the Bengawan Solo river, cutting through the Pleistocene deposits in which P. erectus was found, has been inserted. In the left lower centre is a white tent, most probably of Dubois's team, adjacent to a cliff with outcrops of sediment layers. On the photo verso "vindplaats Pithecanthropus" [type locality of Pithecanthropus] is written in an old hand. A unique copy - inscribed by the author to his brother - with an original photograph. See http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/homs/edubois.html. Garrison-Morton, 210.

      , 1894. 1894. Unpaginated autograph and friendship album with a perfusion on entries from classmates from across the country, the islands, Mexico, Canada and Japan.

        The Humanitarian. A Monthly Review of Sociological Science. Edited by Victoria Woodhull Martin. Volume IV, January - June 1894

      17 Hyde Park Gate, S.W., 1894, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fair Condition, First Edition. Title page, portrait of Victoria Woodhull Martin, 480 pages, 5 portraits, 5 pages of index, 1 page contributors list. Articles feature an interview with Alfred Russell Wallace on "Heredity and Pre-Natal Influences", and contributions such as Arnold Bennett's "Faust and Marguerite", Stoppard A. Brooke on "The Story of the Women's Trades Union League", Sir William Moore's "The Anti-Opium Crusade", Morley Roberts on "The true Function of Cannibalism", Ettore Socci with "An Italian View of the Women's Movement", Mrs Aubrey Richardson on "Women and Gambling", and "Women in the Jury Box", and there are at least six pieces by Victoria Woodhull including "The Humanitarian Movement" and "The Evolution of Government". It is likely that a number of the unattributed shorter articles are by Woodhull too. Original green decorative cloth. Spine rubbed clean of lettering. Worn at corners and head and tail of spine. Shaken at inner joints, contents virtually loose from the binding, and one gather at rear almost completely detached. Some damage to text of page 159-160. Fore edges marked. Regardless of condition, this is a very rare volume, by one of the most interesting women of the nineteenth century. Perhaps most striking amongst her achievements was running for President of the United States in 1872, likely the first woman to do so, and with the former slave Frederick Douglas as her running-mate. She sought further nominations in 1884 and 1892. Later in her life she campaigned with views on abortion, eugenics, vegetarianism, sex education, prostitution, free love, and even short skirts. By 1877 she was living in London and met her third husband, banker John Biddulph Martin, and married in 1883. Under the name Victoria Woodhull Martin she began publishing "The Humanitarian", running from 1892 to 1901. Her husband died that year and she gave up published. She died in 1927, having lived a life with careers as varied as a Stockbroker (first woman on Wall Street to own her own brokerage, with her sister), a newspaper editor, women's rights advocate, and member of the First International. In Britain her chief contribution to public life was through the publication of "The Humanitarian", in which she was helped by her daughter Zula. Size: Octavo (standard book size).

        Hoyt's A Black Sheep

      New York: The Strobridge Lith. Co., 1894. Original poster. Color lithograph. 38.75 x 29 inches. This beautiful 1894 poster for Charles Hale Hoyt's 'A Black Sheep And How it Came Out in the Wash' an image of features Fanny Da Costa "The Queen of Burlesque". The New York Times called the play a success and a big hit. According to the review "'A Black Sheep' is amusing, and it has an understandable story. It carries as many singing and dancing 'specialties' as Mr. Hoyt ever out into 'The Tin Soldier' or 'The Brass Monkey'; but those specialties are not introduced in the usual 'I'll-sing-a-song-that-will-tell-you-all-about-it' style."Charles H. Hoyt was a popular American dramatist in the late 19th century. He wrote over twenty comedy dramas, often involving baseball. This is a scarce poster for one of his popular work.The poster is in good condition with some wear along the folds. Minor edge wear and toning at places. Large rip on the right hand of the poster, repaired on verso.

      Portrait de l' Alpiniste Victor de CESSOLE en tenue d' excursionniste, accoudé à un muret en montagne, alpenstock et chaussures de montagne. Tirage époque papier albuminé , noté " Cimena 10 septembre 1894. " . Carte photo : 12,5 x 16,5 cm. montée sur cartonnage présentation beige, liseré doré. : 14 x 19 cm.( Cimena/ Italie ). cliché anonyme. RARE.Nota: la collection de Victor Cessole a été donné à la ville de Nice, le 19 mars 1933, au musée Masséna. Il y a donc fort peu de documentsoriginaux en mains privées, car seuls quelques papiers de famille ou personnels et ouvrages réservés à ses proches ont été distraits de cette magnifique bibliothèque.( cf. articles de journaux époque. ) . Ici photo originale le représentant en Excursionniste. Le Chevalier Victor Spitalieri De Cessole , famille originaire de Barcelonnette, ayant acquis le Comté de Cessole en Piémont au XVIII ème siècle.Le Chevalier Victor de Cessole ( 1859-1941 )" Ce nom de Victor de Cessole, né à Nice le 20 décembre 1859, est connu d'un petit nombre des spécialistes : alpinistes, bibliophiles, historiens. Ce personnage discret, aux idées d'avant-garde, a cependant doté sa région d'un équipement promis à connaitre une grande expansion : les sports d'hiver. En 1889, il rejoint le Club alpin français (CAF) de Nice, puis découvre les sommets aux alentours de Saint-Martin-Vésubie. Le mont Clapier, la cime du Gélas et la cime de la Malédie sont rapidement vaincus. Vient alors la systématisation dans la conquête des sommets des Alpes-Maritimes et de l'Argentera, suivie d'hivernales à partir de 1895. Accompagné d'un guide (le plus fréquemment Jean Plent) dans ses expéditions, il réalise de nombreuses premières. Président du Club Alpin Français, section des Alpes Maritimes, durant 32 ans, il est l'auteur de 7200 clichés pris sur le terrain avec un matériel lourd et encombrant. Toutes ces vues, reproduites parfois dans la revue du CAF, mais le plus souvent inédites, présentent chacune un grand intérêt. Deux pôles principaux se dégagent de l'action de Victor de Cessole : le création des refuges ainsi que l'introduction du ski dans le Haut-Pays Niçois.Il crée en 1909 le "Ski Club des AlpesMaritimes", et organise la même année un concours de ski à Turini Camp d'Argent avec la participation du 6ème Bataillon de Chasseurs Alpins. il sera aussi l'initiateur en 1930 de la création des secours en montagne dans le département niçois. Homme d'une grande bonté et d'une humanité sans faille, il s'éteint à Nice le 23 janvier 1941 ayant légué en 1933 sa précieuse bibliothèque au Musée Masséna." ( histoire du ski dans les Alpes Maritimes.) Victor de Cessole recevra de nombreux honneurs. Il est notamment fait officier de la Légion d'honneur en avril 1936. En hommage à l'
