        From the Virginia Plantation to the National Capitol: Or the First and Only Negro Representative in Congress from the Old Dominion

      Hartford, CT: American Publishing Company, 1894. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition. Hard Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Sound binding with some minor wear including a cracked rear hinge. Fascinating autobiography. Langston, born free in 1829 as the youngest son of a Louisa County plantation owner and his emancipated true love, lived with his siblings in the big house until his parents&#39; death in 1834. At that time, their children, whose inheritance was substantial, moved to Ohio to live with abolitionist friends. Langston graduated from Oberlin College and studied law under the tutelage of Republican Congressman Philemon Bliss. Langston became one of the first black men ever to hold public office in the United States when he won the election to a town clerk position in Ohio, and he became the first African-American elected to the U.S. Congress from Virginia during Reconstruction in 1888. He also served as the first dean of the law school at Howard University and the first president of what is now Virginia State University.

        Shakespeare&#39;s England

      New York: Macmillan and Company, 1894. 12mo. 274pp. A unique copy with beautifully executed original pen and ink drawings throughout showing the sights and landmarks of Shakespeare&#39;s country. Profusely illustrated with hand-drawn vignettes of the thatched cottages of Stratford-upon-Avon, landscape vistas of Warwick and Windsor, and other known British locations. The illustrations are imaginative and romantic: at one point, a flock of birds alights from the rooftop of the Red Horse Inn and wings its way across the open pages to Stratford Church. The text, which is meant to be a guide for the American literary traveler, opens with quotations from Shakespeare and Wordsworth. Fitch has encircled these verses with a set of scenic, cascading post cards, threaded together with a ribbon. Very little is known about the illustrator, E. Fitch: one illustration is signed "E. Fitch Catskill," but no record could be found of an illustrator by that name in the area. Ornately bound in red morocco by the American bindery Bradstreet&#39;s. Both covers are decorated with borders of oak leaves and acorns, employing onlays of green morocco and gilt vines. The spine is divided into six compartments, gilt-titled in one, and with gilt roses in the remaining five. Green morocco doublures are decorated with gilt dentelles and a border of leafy vines accented with minute butterflies. Silver moiré silk endpapers bordered with gilt decoration and a rose in each corner complete this sumptuous binding. Extremely fine and housed in a red morocco pull-off case. T.e.g. With a laid-in card bearing a gift note from the Philadelphia rare book dealer A. S. W. Rosenbach; it is speculated that Rosenbach, or another bookseller, might have had this copy specially embellished for an important private client.

        Pride and Prejudice

      George Allen Ruskin House 1894 - Beautiful FINE Limited Edition. One of 250 large paper copes for Britain. 476 pages. Decorated title page, frontispiece, and large illustrations (160 in all, printed on special China paper and laid down) by Hugh Thomson printed on unbleached Arnold paper. This copy has been exquisitely bound by Chicago's premier fine binder, Scott Kellar, who was asked to give us his best work. The pristine, crisp, and creamy white handmade paper text block has been bound in full teal morocco leather. It has been decorated with tasteful rule and stamp designs on front and back panels and spine (with title and author), all full gilt. Bottom and fore edge have deckle edge untrimmed as issued, and top and inner edge of boards are cranberry to tie into the full cranberry leather clamshell box made to contain the volume. Both book and box are as perfect as the day they left the binder's hand. The one minor flaw is a slight and quite unobtrusive sun fading to pastedown and front free endpaper, affecting one inch and one half inch respectively on fore edge of each. Overall we could not imagine a more lovely and elegant copy of this edition of Austen's masterpiece. It would make a beautiful gift presentation. More photos available upon request.

        The Banditti of the Plains, or the Cattlemen&#39;s Invasion of Wyoming in 1892

      Cheyenne, WY, 1894. First Edition, First Printing 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fair. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Fantastic association copy with signature from Wild Bunch gang member William Ellsworth "Elzy" Lay on front endpaper. Lay was Butch Cassidy&#39;s second-in-command, outranking the Sundance Kid. He was indispensable in the execution of the 1897 Castle Gate, UT payroll robbery and the infamous 1899 Wyoming train job. Eventually, he left the outlaw lifestyle and settled down with family as a businessman in southern California. According to the family, the last few pages and endpapers are missing because Lay tore them out on which to write his will. The book itself is no less legendary, with the expose of the Wyoming Stock Grower&#39;s Association by a journalist who had come to the state to edit their official publication and eventually took sympathy with the side of the Wyoming settlers. The cattle barons and the WSGA repeatedly attempted to wipe Mercer&#39;s book from existence, through his arrest and harassment and arson of his press. Brown cloth boards are frayed along edges, a third of spine is torn away, front board becoming detached and quite fragile. Text is clean and free of markings.

INTERESSANT RECUEIL DANS UNE AGREABLE RELIURE. Notre exemplaire contient : la 2e édition de La Science des Esprits (la 1ère datant de 1865) et l'édition originale du Catéchisme de la Paix. Voici le jugement que portait la Librairie Chacornac, dans un de ses catalogues pour l'année 1936, sur le 2e livre et les fragments qui le complètent : "La réunion du Catéchisme de la Paix et des extraits de la Bible de la Liberté nous montre deux aspects typiques d'Eliphas Lévi. La Bible de la Liberté est un hymne socialistico - mystique écrit par l'auteur en 1840, lorsque la misère lui tenait au coeur ; par contre, le Catéchisme de la Paix, écrit vers 1870, est un appel à la mansuétude, dans l'amour du prochain." La Science des Esprits, dans sa première partie, relate l'Histoire de Jésus selon les Talmudistes. Les chapitres suivants examinent les théories formulées par les Kabbalistes sur les anges et les démons ; puis, celles, plus généralement admises par les sociétés humaines, depuis l'Antiquité jusqu'au Moyen Age, au sujet des phénomènes inexpliqués (nécromancie, fantômes, visions, etc.). On remarquera que l'auteur redevient pleinement catholique toutes les fois qu'il réfute les supercheries spirites.

Etudes sur les origines de la Kabbale, avec des recherches sur les Mystères de la Franc - Maçonnerie suivies de la Profession de foi et des Eléments de Kabbale. Appendice par PAPUS. (Et) : Le Grand Arcane ou L'Occultisme dévoilé.

      Paris, Chamuel, 1894 et 1898. 2 ouvrages réunis en 1 fort volume in - 8 (13,5 x 22 cm), relié demi - basane noire, dos à 4 nerfs, décoré de filets dorés et de filets à froid, titres dorés, plats et tranches mouchetés, gardes marbrées, 3 feuillets (blanc liminaire, faux - titre et titre du 1er ouvrage) + VII pages (préface) + 333 pages (texte, appendice et table) + VIII pages (incluant faux - titre, titre, lettre - préface du baron SPEDALIERI à l'éditeur et introduction du second ouvrage) + 396 pages (note de l'éditeur, texte et table) + 1 feuillet blanc final. Avec 2 figures dans le corps du second texte. (Quelques éraflures sur la basane ; papier de reliure du plat supérieur et coins légèrement frottés sans gravité ; papier partiellement jauni comportant des rousseurs, des pliures angulaires ainsi que des réparations discrètes dans certaines marges). IMPORTANT RECUEIL DANS UNE BONNE RELIURE. Editions originales de ces deux oeuvres, qui en réalité n'en font qu'une, puisque la seconde sert de complément à la première. Caillet (tome I, page 386, n° 2579) voit dans Le Livre des Splendeurs "un ouvrage de haute portée sociale et philosophique dont le contenu justifie amplement le titre." Quant au Grand Arcane, qui est posthume, c'est, selon notre bibliographe, "le testament de l'auteur, (...) le plus important et le dernier de ses livres sur la science occulte" (cf. notice n° 2575). Bibliotheca Esoterica (page 152, n° 1471) recommande la lecture de l'Appendice, établi par Papus, qui "contient non seulement une étude très détaillée sur la doctrine d'Eliphas Lévi, mais aussi des documents et des renseignements sur ses différents disciples." Sont étudiés dans Le Livre des Splendeurs les sujets suivants : L'Idra Suta ou le Grand Synode, commentaire du Siphra Dzeniuta, par S. Ben - Jochaï ; les légendes maçonniques extraites d'un rituel du VIIIe siècle ; l'Histoire du Chevalier de Léon ; le Baphomet, etc. Le Grand Arcane nous révèle trois aspects de l'occultisme : le Mystère hiératique, le Mystère royal et le Mystère sacerdotal. Il est question, au long de ces chapitres, du magnétisme, de la divination, des rites sacrés ou maudits, etc.

Die Malerin und Zeichnerin Mathilde Schmöle war seit 1876 mit dem Frankfurter Kaufmann F.P. Schmöle (1844-1924) verheiratet, der 1904 seinen Beruf aufgab, um sich ganz dem Malen und Reisen zu widmen. Nach der Vita ihres Mannes, der sich 1872 ein Landhaus in Kronberg erbauen ließ und dort in Kontakt trat mit den örtlichen Malern, könnte sie mit diesem gemeinsam bis 1905 Studienfahrten in die nähere Umgebung Frankfurts, nach Wetzlar und Braunfels sowie zwischen 1905 und 1913 nach Belgien und Holland, an die deutsche Nordseeküste, nach Sylt, Helgoland, in die Schweiz und nach Norditalien unternommen haben. Sie malte Landschaften, Porträts und Genrebilder. In engem brieflichem Kontakt stand sie mit Berta Riehl, Ehefrau des Kulturhistorikers und Novellisten W.H. Riehl, dessen Tochter Helene Riehl (geb. 1850) eine Landschaftsmalerin wurde. Laut einer überlieferten schriftlichen Anmerkung der Künstlerin war sie in Weimar eine Schülerin des Malers und Radierers F. Preller d. Ä. (1804-1878).

        Mädchenakt mit wehendem Haar und flatterndem Tuch, rechts zwei Detailstudien des linken Armes.

      . Bleistift, weiß gehöht, auf bräunlichem Velin, rechts unten in Kurzform signiert. 28,8:21 cm.. Zunächst absolvierte Bürck 1894-1897 eine Lehre als Dekorationsmaler in München, daneben besuchte er 1895-1897 die dortige Kunstgewerbeschule bei T. Spieß (1846-1920), F. Widmann (1846-1910) und K.M. Gebhardt (1834-1915). Seine Tätigkeit lag in dieser Zeit auf dem Buchdekor, vereinzelt auch auf kunstgewerblichen Entwürfen, etwa für Teppiche, Tapeten, Schmuck und Porzellan. 1899 wurde er auf Veranlassung von Großherzog Ernst Ludwig von Hessen Gründungsmitglied der Darmstädter Künstlerkolonie. 1902/03 leitete er die Buchgewerbeklasse der Kunstgewerbe- und Handwerkerschule in Magdeburg. 1905-1908 lebte er in Rom, anschließend kehrte er nach München zurück, wo er bis zu seinem Tode lebte. Nach einer ersten Orientierung am floralen Jugendstil, schloß er sich nach 1900 dem strengeren, abstrakt-linearen Jugendstil der Darmstädter an. Nach seinem Darmstädter Aufenthalt wandte er sich immer mehr der Graphik und Malerei zu, die er ab 1904 ausschließlich pflegte. Die zwischen 1904 und 1922 veröffentlichten zahlreichen Mappenwerke zeigen mit ihren Landschaften oder Blättern mit allegorischen und symbolischen Themen eine Orientierung an M. Klinger (1857-1920) und A. Kubin (1877-1959). Ab 1913 gestaltete er überwiegend alpine Landschaften, dekorative Figurenbilder und Porträts.
