[30]pp. Contemporary full dark brown calf, gilt lettering on front cover, black string-tie at gutter margin. Printed with "Compliments of Warren Chemical & Manufacturing Co." on front pastedown, printed contents page. Moderate rubbing on the boards, a little foxing on the card mounts, very good or better.The album contains 29 glossy Woodburytype photos tipped onto thick printed cardstock leaves, each leaf with linen hinge, with printed text above and below the image.

Warren Chemical was founded by Herbert M. Warren and his five brothers, who were the pioneers in developing the coal tar industry in the United States. In 1847, Samuel and Cyrus Warren discovered that coal tar, a waste product of the gas lighting industry, made an ideal adhesive for producing asphalt built-up roofs. Initially the gas companies paid them to haul the waste away, which established an invaluable resource to build up a thriving business. Herbert Warren, and his brother, E. Burgess Warren founded a branch of the family business in Philadelphia in 1852 which focused on roofing and paving, as well as drawing upon the extensive oil fields in Pennsylvania for raw materials.This catalogue advertises many customers, owners of notable Gilded Age edifices, the Warren Chemical Co. had roofed.

        THE TALE OF THE EMPEROR COUSTANS AND OF OVER SEA

      Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1894. ONE OF 525 COPIES on paper (and 20 on vellum) n. Hardcover. 150 x 110 mm. mm (5 3/4 x 4 1/4"). 2 p.l., 130 pp. ONE OF 525 COPIES on paper (and 20 on vellum). Original holland-backed blue-gray paper boards, untrimmed edges. Borders of twining leaves and grape clusters around each of the two full-page woodcuts as well as on first page of text of both stories, woodcut foliated three-line initials, rubrics on every page. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate bearing the Pepperell coat of arms. Peterson A-26; Sparling 26; Forman 153; Walsdorf Collection 25; Walsdorf "William Morris" 26; Tomkinson, p. 114. Two tiny white spots to upper board, just a hint of soil to the covers, otherwise a very fine copy, the binding unworn, and especially clean, fresh, and bright internally. This is a particularly charming little Kelmscott anthology of two Medieval French romances translated by Morris into his special brand of archaic-sounding English. The love stories involve, first, a commoner's marriage to the daughter of the pagan emperor of Byzantium and, second, the adventures that befall French lovers who are taken prisoner by Saracens during a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Even though the limitation here is a bit larger than with most Kelmscott books, it is still difficult to find a copy as well preserved as the present one.

      London: [Printed at the Ballantyne Press for] Elkin Mathews & John Lane at the Bodley Head, 1894. ONE OF 25 LARGE PAPER DELUXE COPIES with extra ornamentation (along with 200 regular copies) n. Hardcover. The Sought-after Deluxe Version of Ricketts' Best Work as an Illustrator. 258 x 195 mm (10 1/4 x 7 3/4").

In marbled drop-back box inside matching purple morocco-backed slipcase. With one wood-engraved vignette, one woodcut initial, and NINE DRAMATIC SEPIA WOOD-ENGRAVED PLATES, ALL BY CHARLES RICKETTS, tissue guard between title and first page of text as called for. With publisher's advertisement laid in. Printed in black, red, and green. Ray 262; Mason 362; "Turn of a Century" 10. But for insignificant soiling to vellum A VERY FINE COPY, the leaves fresh and bright, the gilt glistening. This is a landmark in book production at the end of the 19th century, a tour de force of Decadent style, offered here in its rarely seen deluxe issue. In the poem, Wilde depicts the legendary Egyptian Sphinx as an erotically ravenous creature who has been the lover of many figures from classical antiquity, both gods and men. This was an important volume in the history of book design, as it represented the first work over which Vale Press founder Charles Ricketts (1866-1931) exerted complete control. Ricketts testified that the present volume contains his best work as an illustrator, and Ray calls it Ricketts' most original and consistent work, resulting in "a perfect whole, as harmonious as it is dazzling." The book was well received upon publication, with the "Pall Mall Gazette" noting that "the monsters of the Egyptian room at the British Museum live again in [Ricketts'] weird, sometimes repulsive, but at all times stately and impressive lines." Perhaps carried away by a flush of untempered enthusiasm (but in any case reflecting the same appreciation of the contemporaneous audience), "The Globe" said of Wilde's poem that it is "among the most remarkable works ever penned by a human hand." Ricketts' reputation as one of the most gifted contributors to the book arts of his time remains secure. Less secure are the chances of finding another copy of this volume in such desirable condition. ABPC records only five copies of the deluxe issue at auction since 1976.

        FIRST FOOTSTEPS IN EAST AFRICA or, An Exploration of Harar.

      London Tylston and Edwards 1894 - 2 volumes. First Edition thus and first issue of the Memorial Edition. With coloured lithographic frontispieces, maps and illustrations, some full-page and in colour throughout the work, as in the first edition. 8vo, publisher’s original black polished cloth lettered in gilt on the spines. xxxiv, (ii), 209; (x), 276, (4) pp. A very handsome set, well preserved, bright and clean with some minimal wear or light evidence of age at the head-caps or outer joints. The cloth is in good order, the hinges strong, the binding tight, the text-block clean. AN IMPORTANT BURTON PRINTING and a very important edition of this primary text, created by Isabel Burton in honour of her husband’s expansive work and extended oeuvre. Ms Burton had hoped to continue on with the project, publishing many more of Burton’s writings, but the seven volumes which she did publish were the only ones ever printed. This is a fine set of the scarce Memorial issue of one of Burton’s most important books. Not only did the printing include the full text of the original, but also the original illustrations. FIRST FOOTSTEPS IN EAST AFRICA is a seminal work of Africana recording Burton's first expedition into Somalia. His purpose was to explore the forbidden Moslem city of Harar, "a city whose walls no European had ever penetrated," as well as to gather information about the headwaters of the Nile. He travelled in the same disguise that took him to Mecca, as Haji Mirza Abdullah, an Arab merchant. It was on this expedition that Burton was first joined by John Speke, at the suggestion of James Outram. Speke originally abetted Burton's plans in Somalia, but differences quickly arose between the two, and Speke over the years became Burton's great nemesis, taking credit for discovering the Nile and deprecating Burton's efforts in every sphere. On this journey, despite the success of the primary objective, Lieut. Stroyan died and Burton received the famous spear wound to his face during an attack by Somalis while encamped on the beach at Berberah. Burton’s intellectual influence is far-reaching. His amazing grasp of languages and culture anticipates the globalism of the future. His geographical discoveries not only make him an interesting historical figure but also allowed for future exploration. The detail with which he wrote and his willingness to examine intimate aspects of daily life were precursors to modern ethnography. And his understanding and willingness to immerse himself in cultures that are still little understood by those in Western nation-states is enlightening on many levels. He was the first European to enter Mecca, first to explore Somaliland, and first to discover the great lakes of Central Africa. A prolific writer, he published 43 volumes on exploration and travel, two volumes of poetry, over a hundred articles and 143 pages of autobiography. He translated sixteen volumes of The Arabian Nights, six volumes of Portuguese literature, two volumes of Latin poetry, and four volumes of folklore (Neapolitan, African and Hindu). His occupations included; soldier, writer, explorer, foreign emissary, translator and linguist, sword fighter, ethnographer and archaeologist. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      George Allen. London. 1894. FIRST THOMSON EDITION. 8vo. (7.3 x 4.9 inches). Beautifully illustrated throughout with 101 fine line engravings by Thomson. A remarkable copy of this fragile book.

        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].. Broadside, 10¾ x 8¼ inches. 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. OCLC 426821564.

        Esther Waters. A Novel

      London: Walter Scott, 1894. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. First Edition. Author Presentation Copy, inscribed "To A.J.A. Symons with thanks for some suggestions regarding the books a collector of 1930 would like to possess." The inscription refers to the aid that Symons gave Moore in the writing of his unfinished story "A Lost Masterpiece" (see Helmut Gerber's George Moore on Parnassus, 1988, pp. 802-807). George Moore (1852-1933) was an Irish author, poet, critic, and dramatist who is often regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist. Published in 1894, Esther Waters is regarded as Moore's best and most successful novel. It had over twenty-five editions and was translated into several languages during Moore's life. Set in England, the novel recounts a young servant girl's seduction and her struggle to rear her son to decent manhood. The novel reveals Moore's awareness of the vulnerability of unprivileged Victorian women and his knowledge of the lifestyles of the lower classes. Although the novel draws chiefly on Zola and Flaubert, it is also indebted to the emerging New Woman fiction. Esther Waters portrays a rebellious lower-class heroine who defies Victorian double sexual standard which imposed repressive rules for women's sexuality and allowed relative sexual freedom for men (From the Victorian Web). A.J.A. Symons (1900-1941) was an English writer and bibliographer. He was an authority on the writers and editions of the 1890s, published a bibliography on Yeats, and in 1930 founded the Book Collector's Quarterly. Bound in the original dark green cloth with author and title in gilt to spine. Slight pulling away of front free endpapers but otherwise in very good condition. With ownership signature of artist and writer Pickford Waller. Inserted in is a print advertisement for the book. 377 pages plus 18 pages of advertisements. LIT/080515.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Paris, 7. V. 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.

        The Second Book of the Rhymers' Club

      Elkin Mathews & John Lane, London 1894 - Hardcover. Scarce. One of 650 copies. Presentation copy from the publisher John Lane, inscribed in pencil to the Irish poet and novelist Katharine Tynan Hinkson: "Mrs. Hinkson with the publisher's regards." Presentation and association copies of the two books of the Rhymers' Club are extremely uncommon. The Rhymers' Club, founded in 1890 by the young William Butler Yeats and Ernest Rhys, was a group of London-based poets, Originally it was not much more than a dining club, meeting in pubs, Those who took part included Ernest Dowson, Lionel Johnson, Francis Thompson, Richard Le Gallienne, John Gray, John Davidson, Edwin J. Ellis, Victor Plarr, Selwyn Image, Lord Alfred Douglas, Arthur Cecil Hillier, John Todhunter, G.A. Greene, Arthur Symons, Ernest Radford, and Thomas William Rolleston. Oscar Wilde attended some meetings that were held in private homes. The group as a whole matched quite closely Yeats' retrospective idea of 'the tragic generation', destined for failure and in many cases early death. Along with the social element of the Rhymers' Club, they published two volumes of verse. The first, titled The Book of the Rhymers' Club was published by Elkin Mathews in 1892. The Second Book of the Rhymers' Club, with five poems by Yeats, appeared two years later in 1894, published by the recently merged Elkin Mathews and John Lane. They had print runs of 450 and 650 respectively. By the time Arthur Ransome wrote his Bohemia in London in 1907, the group had long passed into legend." Bound in original brown cloth with gilt title to spine. Light browning to margins of interior pages. With bookplates of writer J.G.E. Hopkins, culinary writer Helmut Lothar Ripperger, and collector Mark Samuels Lasner. Very good condition. POE/080715. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
