        Autograph entry in the guestbook of the Villa Discopoli on Capri. Capri, 1894-1908.

      1894. 8vo. 66 ff. of entries and 19 blank ff. Contemp. calf with corner fittings and clasp. The present guestbook with more than 230 entries of varying length constitutes a fine document of Rilke's sojourn on Capri, where he had been invited as guest of Mrs. Alice Faehndrich, née Baroness of Nordeck zur Rabenau, sister of Countess Luise Schwerin. The poet spent the winter and following spring of 1906/07 on the island, "from December 4 to May 15 [...] living the life of the House of Roses attentively and gratefully", as he penned on the day before his departure. His wife Clara, too, was twice a guest at the glamorous villa: on Jan. 14, on her way to Egypt, she pays her thanks "for being honoured with two beautiful days at the Villa Discopoli as an unexpected present on my journey - between Berlin and Egypt", and after her return she spends the last few weeks there with her husband: "returned from Egypt the 20th of April, I was received and indulged until May 15 in the dear Villa Discopoli". Rilke's brief but grateful entry does not reveal that here he composed his "Improvisations from the Capri Winter", a work that points beyond his "New Poems". Other guests at the Villa whom Rikle must have met during his stay there included Wolfgang von Tirpitz (the son of Alfred von Tirpitz), Ferdinand von Martitz, and Franz von Niebelschütz. The encounter with the with most far-reaching consequences, however, was that with the young Countess Manon zu Solms-Laubach, a niece of the Hereditary Count Friederich (1833-1900). After her departure, a correspondence ensued which by 1913 was to comprise on Rilke's side no less than 19 letters and a calligraphic transcription of what is possibly Rilke's most famous poem, "The Panther". - Rilke and his wife had known the sister of their hostess Alice (called "Alla" in the guestbook), Countess Luise von Schwerin, née Nordeck zu Rabenau, since 1905, when they had met in Dresden. At the beginning of his stay, Rilke had been the only guest, but with the arrival of Alice, Julie von Nordeck ("Nonna"), and Manon zu Solms-Laubach his solitary position ended. "The exploration of Anacapri, the ascent to Monte Solaro, the visit to the grotta of Migliera and to the little church of Sarita Maria a Cetrella unlocked a countryside similar to Greece [...] During the evenings, the ladies were an attentive audience, when they sat doing their needlework or peeling him an apple, ready to hear his day's work [...]" (cf. Donald A. Prater, Ein klingendes Glas. Das Leben R. M. Rilkes, Hamburg 1989). - Apart from the entries of the Rilkes, the guestbook contains an autograph pencil portrait by Pauline von Kalckreuth, as well as the two-page poem, "Le tombeau du poete" ("d'apres Henry Heine") by Camille du Locle, who was soon to end his life on Capri. Other entries are by Vera Amerongen, Julia and Eugéne Bonnard, Réne and Gilbert Clavel, Emmy and Ernst Gumppenberg, Baroness and Baron Alice and Walther von Falkenhausen, Hanns and Margarethe Floerke, Leonie and Marie Fontaine, Eberhard Hardeck zur Rabenau (Count of Schwerin), Heinrich and Elise Lützow, Richard Mackensen, Ferdinand von Martitz, Julie Baroness Nordeck zu Rabenau (née von Wallenberg), Baron Friedrich von Oppeln-Bronikowski (fine, 1½-page dedication with a 14-line poem), Emmy von Radetzky, Prince Heinrich XXX. zu Reuss, A. von Röder, Auguste Schepp, Leopold von Schlözer (with a half-page, coloured pencil drawing), Luise Schwerin (wife of Count Karl v. Schwerin), Count Friedrich von Schwerin, Countess Manon zu Solms-Laubach, Baroness and Baron Mathilde and Arthur von Stackelberg, Wolfgang von Tirpitz, Baron Jakob and Gabrielle von Uexküll (twice), Hermann Vierordt, Anna von Wallenberg, Wanda von Wallenberg, Elisabeth Wegeli, Baroness Adele Wolff, Count and Countess von Zieten Schwerin, and Ernst Zitelmann (with a fine quote from his "Radierungen und Momentaufnahmen", published the same year). - Wants spine; covers rubbed and with signs of splitting; binding loosened.

(... ) Mais pour clore ma carrière d'héraldiste, pour pouvoir dire en toute sincérité mon 'Exegi monumentum', il me restait à offrir à mon fidèle public une sorte de résumé de mes longs travaux, et je le fais en lui apportant aujourd'hui ce recueil dans lequel on trouvera plus de cinq cents généalogies de familles patriciennes françaises ou étrangères, et la liste complète des titres de noblesse conférés par le Saint-Siège à des Français depuis le commencement du siècle. C'est pour ainsi dire la quintessence de ce Nobiliaire auquel j'ai consacré tant d'années."

Munch adds that he regrets having been unable to paint Mengelberg's feverish dreams while in Stockholm. - Letter 2 (10 June 1897): Munch writes he wanted to send birthday greetings, but when he left Hamburg he was without money, unable even to afford a postcard. He has sent a lithograph, mentions that Hamsun and Ibsen just passed by his window, and adds he wishes to travel to Paris in the spring. - Letter 3 (10 Jan. 1897): mentions the artist Paul Durand-Ruel, stating that all he exhibits is not symbolic. He also plans to publish an album of lithographs, provided he managed to find more subscribers. - Letter 4 (17 March 1897): some chat on the spring; mentions an exhibition in Dresden. - Postcards: complaints that Mengelberg is a poor correspondent. - Richard Mengelberg (1853-1932) wrote, in 1894, an article on Munch's works for the Frankfurter Zeitung.

The pamphlet begins with a => full-page illustration by Edward Burne-Jones of Adam and Eve toiling with the caption "When Adam delved and Eve span / Who was then the gentleman" within a beautiful (and Kelmscott-typical) foliate border.

Inside and at rear are an extract from Tennyson's "The Golden Year" and his "Flowers in the Crannied Wall" complete, as well as a passage from John Ruskin on finding satisfaction in work. Each selection is given a unique side or corner border and an accompanying floriated initial. => The pamphlet concludes with a Kelmscott Press device and the note: "Ancoats Brotherhood. March, 1894, to March, 1895." Limited to 250 copies. Cream laid paper folded in half, edges the slightest bit unevenly trimmed. => A pretty little Kelmscott keepsake in absolutely beautiful condition.

        Brighton and its Coaches

      1894. first edition. I do not claim to do any more than give the dry bones of stage-coaching"BLEW, William C.A. Brighton and its Coaches. A History of the London and Brighton Road. With some account of the provincial coaches that have run from Brighton. With twenty illustrations from original water-colour drawings by J. & G. temple. All Coloured by Hand. London: John C. Nimmo, 1894. First edition. Royal octavo (10 x 6 3/4 inches; 255 x 170 mm.). xxii, 354 pp. Twenty hand colored lithograph plates. Bound ca. 1960 in full red calf, covers with double gilt-ruled borders, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled in gilt in compartments, green and tan calf labels lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, gilt board-edges and turn-ins, red and white 'Cockerel' end-papers. A fine copy.The twenty illustrations from original water-color drawings by J & G Temple are all lightly colored by hand. They include The King's Road, Brighton; The Old Steyne; The White Hart, Reigate; White Horse Cellars; Mail-Coach leaving the Post-Office; Peas Pottage; King's Head, Cuckfield; Crawley; Friars Oak; Stage-Coachmen at the Golden Fleece, Brighton; The Chequers, Horley; and Castle Square, Brighton."Fifty-two years have passed since the opening of the London and Brighton railway caused the break-up of what was perhaps the best-found, the most popular, and the busiest coach-road out of London. He, therefore, who can remember even the last flicker of the expiring embers of the "Coaching Era" must have exceeded that uncertain period of life known as middle age; while, if we would hear from living lips of the golden age of Brighton stage-coaching, as it was from, say, 1825, we must listen to an octogenarian. But these old-world coachmen, alas! are growing fewer in number; and their memories, once so amply stored with reminiscences which would now be priceless, from the standpoint of the coaching historian, are not quite so retentive as they once were. Moreover, these ancient artists are difficult to find; and even they cannot convey one back to the earliest days of the Brighton road -- that is to say, to the middle of the last century. In venturing to put forth, therefore, some account of the Brighton road, so far as it has been possible to glean its history, I do not claim to do any more than give the dry bones of stage-coaching. It has been my good fortune to converse with more than one of those who drove on the Brighton road in its best days, and their sayings and experiences are incorporated in the following pages?"

        Lourdes, Rome, Paris.

      Paris, Charpentier et Fasquelle, Les Trois Villes, 1894-1895-1898, 3 volumes de 125x185 mm environ, 608, 598 et 751 pages, demi chagrin rouge, dos à nerfs portant titres dorés, gardes marbrées, tranche de tête dorée, couvertures conservées. Edition originale sur papier ordinaire, avec un envoi de l'auteur à Marcel Bedene sur la page de faux-titre de chaque volume. Papier jauni, petites coupures dans les marges de quelques rares pages, un feuillets détaché p. 179-180 du volume Paris, petit manque de papier p. 245-246 du volume Rome, petits frottements sur le cuir, sinon bon état. Émile Zola (à l'état civil Émile Édouard Charles Antoine Zola) est un écrivain et journaliste français, né à Paris le 2 avril 1840 et mort dans la même ville le 29 septembre 1902. Considéré comme le chef de file du naturalisme, c'est l'un des romanciers français les plus populaires, les plus publiés, traduits et commentés au monde. Le roman Lourdes paraît le 25 juillet 1894. Tiré à 88 000 exemplaires, il est présenté en avant-première dans Le Figaro. La critique littéraire reçoit correctement l'ouvrage, en regrettant parfois l'absence de renouvellement entre les deux cycles. La presse conservatrice et religieuse incendie le roman, amenant même des réponses sous forme de roman ou d'étude-réaction. L'ouvrage est mis à l'Index le 21 septembre, mais c'est, en revanche, un immense succès de librairie.Rome et Paris suivent à peu de distance, écrits rapidement dans la foulée de la parution de Lourdes. Rome a pour objet la description du haut clergé moderne, avec le Pape à son sommet, et son positionnement dans le modernisme social de cette fin siècle. La rédaction du roman s'étale entre 1895 et 1896, publié en volume le 8 mai 1896, déclenchant les mêmes foudres que Lourdes. Enfin Paris est le roman de la capitale contemporaine. C'est le contraste entre la richesse et la misère, la bourgeoisie et le monde ouvrier, l'ordre contre l'anarchie. Le volume est mis en vente en pleine affaire Dreyfus, juste après le procès intenté contre Émile Zola à la suite de la publication de « J'accuse ».
