        The Angel of The Revolution; Olga Romanoff: Valdar The Oft-Born

      London Tower Publishing Co, C. Arthur Pearson 1894. 3 vols. 8vo. Bound in publisher's original decorated cloth. All titled in gilt to spines. The Angel of The Revolution is bound in blue cloth, decorated in gilt, black and red, heavy bevelled boards with edgewear and scuffing, bumping to spine ends and and bit of scraping here and there; square and tight. Olga Romanoff is in bronze silk moire covered boardstitled in gilt to spine and decorated and titled in black to front board; edgewear and scuffing, repaired crack to lower inch of front hinge with linen showing through, tight and strong, reall quite a bright copy. Valdar The Oft-Born is burgundy cloth titled in gilt to spine and decorated in black and gilt to front board. Bumping and fraying to head of spine, a little wear and scuffing elsewhere; strong and tight, title page with some soiling and creasing and with a couple of pages standing proud from the text block. Essentially quite strong, visually acceptable copies. All three books are warmly inscribed by Griffith to Ferdinand Scharlach (all three volumes also contain Dr. Scharlach's bookplate to the front pastedown) with the author's "paternal regards." It's fairly well known that Griffith's only son was A.A. Griffith, who invented the Rolls Royce Avon jet engine for the Hawker Hunter fighter jet, amongst others, so we are clearly discussing a different kind of paternal regard than the one the words actually usually mean. George Griffith; crazy late Victorian explorer, the man who circumnavigated the earth in 65 days just to annoy Jules Verne and the 19th Century sci-fi writer who out Wellsed Wells is now unfortunately a trifle overlooked. Flying machines, socialist utopias, plucky heroines and world wide conflicts of unsuspected breadth and, perhaps predictably a spot of casual Imperialist racism and you have a fair overview of what most of griffiths' semi-mystical futuristic science fiction circusses consist of. Endlessly entertaining and really rather ahead of his time, Griffith was described as "undeniably the most popular science fiction writer in England between 1893 and 1895." by Sam Moskowitz, who is a man who knows of what he speaks. Even Wells, his rather more popular rival in later years described his "Outlaws of The Air" as "An aeronautical masterpiece." My single handed and rather cavalier attempt to revive the fortunes of several notable faces of the 19th century literary world continues apace with this pith helmet wearing nutter who wrote no less than 23 novels whilst dividing his time between exploring the globe and drinking like a bookdealer after a particularly successful auction, which accounts for his unfortunate death at 48 from scirrhosis of the liver. Pretty thin on the ground, even thinner inscribed.

        TRILBY (1894 Three-Volume 1st Edition)

      Osgood, McIlvaine 1894 - Du Maurier, George. TRILBY. London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1894. First Edition. Three volumes in the original publisher's buff-colored cloth, blocked and lettered in blue. A NEAR FINE copy, ownership inscription dated 1894 on the front paste-down of each of the three volumes, some scattered foxing and intermittent very light staining, an inevitable touch of soil here and there, spine a tiny bit darkened on Vols. 1 & 2, else an exceptionally fresh set. All three volumes show virtually no wear to the boards and all still have intact inner hinges, the latter case being particularly unusual given the weight of these books as they were printed on heavier, better quality art paper. This is the true first edition of Du Maurier's masterpiece (published a year prior to the better known first illustrated edition), one of the most wildly popular novels of the 1890s. There were Trilby parties where extracts of the book were read aloud; there were Trilby fashions inspired by "la vie bohème." A town in Florida even changed its name to Trilby. Furthermore, Trilby forever altered the public perception of hypnotism with its strikingly original creation of Svengali, one of the most memorable Victorian characters of all time (who also served as the role model for Gaston Leroux's Phantom of the Opera, written fifteen years later). Michael Sadleir, Professor Robert Lee Wolff and David Magee all universally proclaimed Trilby, in fine state, to be a substantial rarity. In Sadleir's case, he points out (Sadleir 1675) that this rarity is not just due to the light color and perishable nature of the publisher's cloth, but also to the fact that much of the first edition was overprinted with misleading later edition stamps in an attempt to imply greater sales, a not uncommon Victorian publisher's practice. Although the initial printing may have been as many as 1,000 copies, few survive today in original condition. We had an equally superior copy in 1994, in Lakin & Marley's Catalogue One, but this is the first really nice copy we've handled since then.

        THE CHRISTMAS HIRELINGS (Presentation Copy)

      London: Simpkin, Marshall, 1894. Braddon, M[ary] E[lizabeth]. THE CHRISTMAS HIRELINGS. Illustrated by F. H. Townsend. London: Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent & Co., 1894. First Edition in the original pictorial buff linen cloth, decorated blue morocco cloth spine. A few pages carelessly opened, a touch of foxing with the usual offsetting to its endpapers but a NEAR FINE PRESENTATION COPY, inscribed by Miss Braddon in purple ink on a prelim: "To dear Mrs. Guyon with the Author's love & New Year wishes. December 30th 1910." Presentation copies by the famous and ever-underrated author of LADY AUDLEY'S SECRET are indeed uncommon. Robert Lee Wolff, in his comprehensive biography of Braddon described THE CHRISTMAS HIRELINGS "as a genuine Braddonian gem." It is a Christmas story in the Dickensian vein, but the deeply moving sentiment is subtly laced with irony and fierce denunciation of Victorian social codes, a Braddon trademark. The central character is an embittered widower who discovers too late, after reading his dead young wife's diaries, that she married him, not for his money (as he assumed) but for his love. But a threesome of young impoverished "hirelings" initially paid to make Christmas more "family-like" for the old man help redeem him, much as Scrooge is redeemed in A CHRISTMAS CAROL. A lost children's classic, and Braddon's only foray into juvenile fiction, this holiday-inscribed minor masterpiece is much deserving of a place on any Victorian collector's shelves. Sadleir 274. Wolff 631.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine. Illus. by F. H. Townsend.

        The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard.

      London: George Newnes Ltd., 1894 - 1895., 1894. The FIRST APPEARANCES of the somewhat foppish French soldier. 13 issues: December 1894 to December 1895. Quarto. Each issue bound in the Strand Magazine's customary light blue soft paper covers, showing a view of the Strand to front cover, volume number, date, and title to spine, and advertisments to rear cover. Numerous illustrations, including a number by W.B. Wollen. These issues also include two notable stories by Verne, and an article by Doyle on Skiing which includes a photograph of Doyle in the act. With clamshell box, bound in quarter blue morocco over blue cloth boards, with raised bands and gilt titles to spine. All issues are rubbed, worn at spine ends, and a little grubby. The front cover of January 1895 bears a recent date inscription in biro. The back cover of June 1895 has become detached. Internally clean and free from spotting. These issues contain all of the stories later published as The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard. Gerard is an extraordinarily vain French soldier, fighting in the armies of Napoleon. Full of Doyle's trademark adventure and derring do, these stories are rendered all the more interesting by elegant flourishes of satire, baldly caricaturing the French, but also cocking a snook at staid British values. Gerard serves in various conflicts across Europe, including in the Iberian peninsula, Germany, Russia, and additionally does a notable stint in Dartmoor Prison.

Thomson illustrated this work for George Allen publishers before going on to illustrate the other Austen books for Macmillan & Co. This is the scarcest of all the Thomson/Austen titles in first edition.

        The New Will: "Everything to My Wife Absolutely"

      1894 - "Everything to My Wife" Sadler, Walter Dendy, After. James Dobie, Engraver. The New Will: "Everything to My Wife Absolutely." London, Paris & New York: Rafael Tuck & Sons Ltd, [c. 1894]. Attractively glazed and double-matted 19" x 16" hand-colored etching in handsome 29" x 26" wooden frame, small brass plaque to center of bottom. Light rubbing to frame, some toning to margins and mat, image vivid. * This piece depicts a presumably newlywed couple reviewing the terms of the husband's will with a barrister in his office. The caption reads "The New Will (Everything to My Wife Absolutely." This is an ambiguous scene. The husband, who appears somewhat smug, is significantly older than the wife, who looks rather sad. The barrister appears skeptical. Does the bride regret her choice to marry for money? Was she compelled to enter this union? Is the husband a dying man?

        SKULLYVILLE COUNTY, CHOCTAW NATION KNOWN ALL MEN BY THESE PRESENTS: THAT, WHEREAS [T G OVERSTREET] A CITIZEN OF THE CHOCTAW NATION, HAS THIS DAY PETITIONED ASKING THAT A PERMIT BE GRANTED TO [THOS GOSSET] A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES, TO REMAIN IN HIS EMPLOY IN THE CAPACITY OF A [FARMER] FOR THE YEAR 189[4]

      Fort Smith, Ar., 1894. Horizontal folds, light spotting and ink offsetting. Very good. A very interesting partially-printed folio broadside concerning the Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma. A rather elegant "work permit" issued to one of the horde of American citizens who flocked to Oklahoma following the opening of the territory to white settlement in 1889. The epic Oklahoma Land Rush and its aftermath settled the future state but also unsettled a good many Native Americans. The need to protect Native Americans against exploitation by would-be "hired hands" or tenant farmers is self-evident. Thomas Gosset sought employment from Thomas G. Overstreet, who at this point, it would seem, could easily take care of himself. By now a prosperous rancher-farmer, Overstreet was a white man from Missouri who married Margaret Victor, of Choctaw ancestry, and came with his new bride to Indian territory in 1871. By marriage Overstreet became a citizen of the Choctaw Nation with the right to own land, which he exercised to the fullest. Overstreet acquired 3000 acres of rich Arkansas River bottomland at the foot of Short Mountain in what is todayLe Flore County, Oklahoma. Skullyville was absorbed into Le Flore County prior to Oklahoma statehood. In 1890, he began work on an elegant 15-room residence which was occupied by his descendants until the 1970s and is today the landmark Overstreet-Kerr Historical Farm. Overstreet contributed to the advancement of regional agriculture and for a time served as president of the first national bank of Warner, Indian Territory. His descendants continued to play a prominent role in the life of the community. Skullyville, Oklahoma lies fifteen miles west of Fort Smith, Arkansas. It was settled by the Choctaws in 1832 when they were removed from their homelands. Given that the Choctaw were amongst the first Native American tribes to arrive in the territory, Skullyville was one of the first organized communities in Oklahoma, and served as the first capital of the Choctaw Nation. Today, Skullyville is a ghost town, with only the cemetery remaining. J.H. Mayers, the printer who occasionally worked for the Choctaw Nation, was successor to W.H. Mayers, publisher of the THIRTY-FIFTH PARALLEL, a Fort Smith newspaper published between 1859 and 1861. A rare Native American broadside from Indian Territory, printed over a decade before Oklahoma statehood was granted. No copies in OCLC.

        COLORED VOTERS READ HERE IS ONE INSTANCE OF THE TREATMENT THE COLORED PEOPLE OF GEORGIA RECEIVE AT THE HANDS OF THE STATE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. WHAT EVIDENCE HAVE THE NEGROES OF THIS STATE THAT SCHOOLS WILL BE PROVIDED FOR THEIR CHILDREN IN CASE THE THIRD PARTY GETS INTO POWER

      [Atlanta, 1894. A couple short edge tears and tiny chips. Very good. An important campaign document illustrating the threat to enfranchised African Americans posed by the rise of populism and third-party politics in the South. In 1892 and again in 1894, the Populist Party, a new political force in the South made up of farmers impoverished by debt and falling cotton prices and led by the charismatic Senator from Georgia, Tom Watson. The Populist Party reached out not only to poor whites but also to African Americans, a rare but all too evanescent moment when it seemed that class solidarity might trump race. The hitherto dominant Georgia Democratic Party reacted in contradictory ways, in this instance by appealing to black voters to support the Democratic Party with ample statistics showing that "in 1893...the negro received more than three times as much money [in school funds] as he pays into the Public Treasurer." Luring black voters away from the Populists was not enough. The Democrats also had to stem the defections of white voters who were flocking to the Populist banner. To accomplish this, they condemned the Negro as reflexively as they courted him. Such an oft-repeated ploy had disastrous long-term consequences, as did the countenancing of Klan violence by the Democratic Party. Ironically, it was a progressive movement, promising to put social justice before race, that led to the disenfranchisement of African Americans in the South, and to the triumph of Jim Crow. A failed party by the turn of the century, the Populists joined ranks with the Democratic Party, which embraced some of its progressive reforms but also helped disenfranchise black voters. Rare, with only two copies in OCLC, at the University of Delaware and the Clements Library.

        An Island Garden

      London: Osgood, McIlvane, 1894. First English edition. gilt-decorated white cloth, top edges gilt. Spine and foredges slightly browned, very minor foxing of rear spine channel, otherwise fine. Octavo. [i-ii], [i-x], (1) - 126 Illustrated with pictures and illuminations in colour by Childe Hassam. Title page in green pink and yellow One of fifty-five copies. A notable rarity Celia Thaxter?s lyrical classic of her delightful garden on Appledore, one of the Isles of Shoals off the coast of New England. From the decorative vellum-like binding to the moiré style endpapers to the generous typography to the illustrations and the inserted full page chromolithographic plates protected by printed tissue guards, this is probably as charming a production as any book in the collection. ?One of the most elaborate pieces of bookmaking of the period? (BAL). This copy, printed by the Riverside Press, is one of those fifty-five copies that were bound with English imprint on May 4, 1894. The binding was designed by Sarah Wyman Whitman and is one of the most elaborate pieces of bookmaking of the period. The cost of the expensively made book probably contributed to the first edition?s small print run of barely 1,000 copies. Basically a poet, Thaxter died shortly after the publication of this, her only book on gardening. With: a copy of 1988 facsimile edition by Houghton Mifflin, boxed as issued[BAL 19923. DAB. NAW].

        The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle Book

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1894-1895 Two volumes. First editions, first printings. The Jungle Book (1894) is illustrated by John Lockwood Kipling, William Henry Drake, and Paul Frenzeny. The Second Jungle Book (1895) is illustrated by John Lockwood Kipling. Both volumes bound in the publisher's navy cloth, spines lettered in gilt, pictorial jungle images based on artwork by the author's father John Lockwood Kipling stamped to the front boards in gilt, all edges gilt, gray coated endpapers. Very good or better, with slight leans and some faint toning to the spines, bright gilt, faint soiling to the otherwise fresh boards, spines cracked and holding before the half-titles, spines lightly starting inside the rear covers, otherwise sturdy bindings, Jungle Book with some faint tidemarks and an erased former owner's inscription to a front flyleaf, Second Jungle Book with some spotting to the font flyleaves, both with some light and scattered spotting to the otherwise fresh pages. Overall, a bright and handsome set. The Jungle Books are collections of short stories and verses, the most famous of which relate to the feral child protagonist Mowgli, a "man cub." While they can be read independently of each other, each chapter serves as a fable using animal figures to provide a moral lesson. In each volume, the short stories are both preceded and followed by poems or songs, including the notable "Mowgli's Song" and "The Law of the Jungle." The Jungle Books, based on the author's childhood and later work experience in British India, are indicative of Western Orientalist ideology at the turn of the 20th century, which is somewhat softened by Kipling's fondness for his former home. Both Jungle Books are illustrated by the author's father, John Lockwood Kipling, who was a practicing illustrator and art professor in Bombay.. Illus. by Kipling, John Lockwood. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.
