        The Purchase Of The North Pole. A sequel to "From The Earth To The Moon

      London, Sampson Low, Marston and Company. 1894, 1894. First English edition, later impression. Publishers bottle green decorated cloth binding, embossed in gilt and black depicting a rather fetching "man meets polar bear" theme. Slight signs of rubbing to corners and head of spine, but very minor, bright and strong. A scarce printing, lavishly illustrated by our old friend M. Rioux, depicting the continued (if slightly less sound) adventures of The Baltimore Gun Club, as they purchase the afore mentioned Arctic and seek to divert the earth from its accustomed orbit to shift the climate zones. This will result in the privately owned North Pole becoming a tropical paradise, allowing the Club to clean up on the cruise ship and pina colada holidays market. A tropical paradise inhabited by polar bears? Who ever heard such a...wait just a minute! Once again Mr.Verne proves that, if it hasn't a some point entered his head, it probably isn't worth thinking about. Presumably if I were an ABC executive I'd consider buying his entire body of work and locking J.J. Abrams in a broom closet with a flashlight until he'd read them all. A splendid book. Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [124].

        Atalanta in Calydon: A Tragedy.

      Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1894 - Quarto. Original limp vellum, title to spine gilt, silk ties (broken). Bookplate of the celebrated book collector William Harris Arnold. Lightly rubbed, a very good copy. Printed in red and black with elaborate woodcut title page and woodcut initials and borders throughout. One of 250 copies on paper. Swinburne was a warm admirer of the Kelmscott Press books. "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'" (quoted in Peterson). The Greek type used for the quotations and dedicatory poems was designed by Selwyn Image, with the technical assistance of Emery Walker, the only instance in the Kelmscott Press books of Morris using a type not designed by himself.

        Autograph letter

      - Single page, 12mo., on verso of post card; approximately 200 words addressed to Alderman Donald McGregor, Jr. (December 1894) ---- "You shall certainly have one of the spare notes for yourself, on condition that you don't return the compliment. You will assuredly be one of the fifteen ablest candidates. The worst of it is, so will I, even from the business point of view. I heartily wish I had so good an excuse for retiring as that poetic incapacity to see the difference between a ten roomed house and an eight roomed one which you so complimentarily ascribe to me. I know your business man perfectly well: he looks wise, sits tight, sees what was done last time & does it over again, and will let you cheat him in the way he is accustomed to sooner than let you put 1000 pounds into his pocket in a new way. There is about as much intelligent observation done by the average rating committee man in viewing the premises as by the average coroner's juror in viewing the body. If you can shew [sic] me a house harder to judge than an opera or a symphony, I'll eat it: there!" ---- In April 1894, eight months before these lines were penned, Shaw's "Arms and the Man" opened to great acclaim in London. It represented the true beginning of his recognition as a popular dramatist. A wonderful letter capturing Shaw's jocular style and inimitable hand; professionally matted and framed.

Frenzeny. 8vo, publisher’s original polished navy blue cloth lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt on each volume, a.e.g. 212; 238, ads pp. A very pleasing, very handsome, bright and clean and sharp set, unusually nice copies. Spine ends and corners all very well preserved, with only the very lightest evidence of age. Hinges are very tight and very strong and without defect. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITIONS, FIRST ISSUES OF THIS CLASSIC WORK. The stories of Mowgli, a human child lost in the jungles of India and raised by wild animals, struck a cord with readers who somehow found him and his animal friends easy to relate to despite the bizarre circumstances. Arguably the best loved of Kipling’s many delightful works for children and a true classic of its genre.

      Boston, Mass.: Bostonian Publishing Company; W.W. Potter Co.; Chapple Publishing Co.. (1894-1921). First. Magazine. A consecutive run of the first 49 volumes from 1894-1920. Octavos (the last three volumes are folios). A long run of monthly issues bound in half calf or full cloth, most with the original illustrated wrappers and advertisements bound in, and including four single issues in wraps. Founded in 1894 as The Bostonian, the magazine was re-named The National Magazine in 1896 to reflect its expanded coverage of American topics and letters. It became the leading national journal of American life and Washington affairs before the rise of TIME and LIFE magazines in the 1920s and 1930s. The earliest issues from 1894-1896 featured articles on the Boston theater, music, women's clubs, and general arts and letters. These topics were covered on a national scale when the magazine expanded its coverage in the late 1890s, along with increasing coverage of international affairs. An ex-library set with bookplates and ink stamps, volumes 1-16 only also have perforated stamps, else overall a good set with a few scattered internal tape repairs. A nice comprehensive assemblage of notable Americana and popular culture. .

        The Ebb-Tide. A Trio and Quartette

      London: William Heinemann,, 1894. Octavo. Original dull gold pebble-grained cloth, pictorial decoration and titles to upper board and spine in black. Housed in a terracotta solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Mild toning to endpapers, spine very slightly cocked and with a trace of rub at the tips, a lovely copy in the exceptionally scarce printed dust jacket, with some minor loss at the ends of the spine panel, rather tanned and a little marked. First edition, first issue (the cloth is indicative). The second of two novels with South Seas settings written in collaboration with his stepson, The Ebb-Tide "had its origins in a much longer novel, The Pearl Fisher, planned in 1889; it is a grim and powerful story of moral depravity and evil whose four main characters Stevenson himself called 'such a troop of swine' (Letters, 8.107). There are parallels between The Ebb-Tide and 'The Beach of Falesá', regarded as one of his finest short stories" (ODNB). This is the only recorded copy of this edition known to have survived in dust jacket.

      1894 - With Marginal Illustrations. Hartford, Conn.: American Publishing Company, 1894. Original red-brown cloth decorated in black. First American Edition ("Pudd'nhead Wilson," but not "Those Extraordinary Twins," appeared a few weeks earlier in Britain). PUDD'NHEAD is a fascinating antebellum tale about two babies (one white and one "slightly" black) switched shortly after birth, one of whom ultimately sells his own mother into slavery in order to pay off his gambling debts. This novel has come to be regarded, along with HUCK FINN, as one of Twain's strongest statements on the subjects of miscegenation and on the degenerative impact of slavery. (Twain spun off "Those Extraordinary Twins" from the PUDD'NHEAD manuscript, when he realized that his planned comedy was rapidly turning into a tragedy.)~This copy is from the first printing, with gatherings 1, 2, 4, 6, 7 & 8 unsigned. Its condition is near-fine (very light wear at the corners). McBride p. 170; Blanck 3442. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A fine excellent example. "This most desirable pair will always fill an honorable place in any library of children's books" (Quayle 87). Richards A76 & A85; Stewart 123 & 132. Livingston 104, 116. A lovely mixed set of one of the cornerstone titles in children's literature & Kipling highlight & along with Just So Stories, his most beloved work. Custom red & blue leather slipcase. First published in magazine format in 1893-4. British Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling was born in India lived there & in England & wrote these stories when he lived in Vermont. The tales are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families & communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle." Other readers have interpreted the work as allegories of the politics & society of the time. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned "man cub" Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian Jungle with the help of Baloo the bear & Bagheera the black panther, & then has to fight the tiger Shere Khan. The most famous of the other stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, & "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. "The White Seal", in which the main character seeks a haven for his people where they would be safe from hunters, has been considered a metaphor for Zionism, then in its beginning. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is preceded by a piece of verse, & succeeded by another. $2475 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

From the library of Stephanos Carathèodory with his engraved bookplate. Stephanos Carathéodory, was an Ottoman Greek who had studied law in Berlin and then served as secretary in the Ottoman embassies in Berlin, Stockholm and Vienna. Stephanos had married Despina Petrocochino, who came from a Greek family of businessmen who had settled in Marseille. At the time of his son Constantin's birth, the family were in Berlin since Stephanos had been appointed there two years earlier as First Secretary to the Ottoman Legation. The Carathéodory family, originally from Bosnochori or Vyssa, was well established and respected in Constantinople, and its members held many important government positions. Stephanos Carathèodory was the father of Constantin Carathéodory (or Constantine Karatheodori) (13 September 1873 – 2 February 1950) was a Greek mathematician. He made significant contributions to the theory of functions of a real variable, the calculus of variations, and measure theory. His work also includes important results in conformal representations and in the theory of boundary correspondence. In 1909, Carathéodory pioneered the Axiomatic Formulation of Thermodynamics along a purely geometrical approach. Known correspondence of Carathéodory-Einstein can be seen as facsimile in Einstein Archives Online (11 items). Three letters concern mathematics and these are printed in vol.8 of Einstein's Collected Works (Princeton Univ. Press 1987) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      1894 - Or The Adventures of Claudius Bombarnac. New York: Lovell, Coryell & Company, n.d. [1894]. 10 pp (paginated 3-12) undated ads. Original tan cloth pictorially decorated in brown. First American Edition, the only Verne title published by this publisher. As noted in T&M, the U.S. Book Company copyrighted this tale (titled CLAUDIUS BOMBARNAC) in September 1894, and two copies were deposited, but no such book was ever published. On October 9th they copyrighted the same tale as SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. (It was also during the month of October that Sampson Low published its edition in London.) Then on November 10th, Lovell Coryell published THE SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT (adding a "THE"), with 52 illustrations, as here (Lovell Coryell was affiliated with United States Book Co., and the latter's copyright appears on this copy's copyright page). It was also so issued in wrappers. By December, E. A. Weeks of Chicago also came out with an edition of this title.~This is a very good-plus copy (minor soil and edge-wear, marginal chip in one ad leaf, faint crease in rear board). This is one of the toughest American Vernes to find, and this is only the second copy we have seen in thirty years. Taves & Michaluk V040. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
