        The Bayadere and Other Stories

      New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons/Knickerbocker Press, 1894. New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons/Knickerbocker Press, 1894. A superb copy , 238pp. bound in full, rich red morocco with morocco doublures and silk in an edition of 12 specially bound by the Knickerbocker Press for the father of the author. Two letters laid in from Francis H. Saltus (author's father) to Edna M. Green. Francis Saltus Saltus (as he was known) led a gang of bohemians including his brother James and a Young James Huneker whose desire for absinthe was mixed with a devotion to the erotic and sensuous. (See Yungfrau, p. 19, Ophelia, p.31, and the Awakening, P. 230.) Laid in: From Francis H. Saltus (writing at the age 103) to Miss Greene who knew his sone though she was a member of the DAR. (1) 4 p.. ALS dated October 15, 1895. Refers to a waltz his son had composed in Paris in the earl 1870's and was performed there with him conducting an orchestra of 70 members. He notes of her many admirers but says none of can match his late son's literary and musical genius. (2). 2p. ALS (with original stmaped envelope) 1 1/4" closed tear at fold. He writes of her beauty and wonders why she has not since gotten married. (She did marry in 1905). The reference to Greenwich days is obscure and not futher identified. The young Saltus's influences were Poe, Gautier and Baudelaire but as Van Wyck Brooks remarked he may at one time have been among the most beautiful men but he "looked like a Greek god gone to ruin, partly as a result of absinthe which he drank to excess.". First Edition. Octavo.

        Landschaft bei Beetz, 1894

      1894. Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts monogrammiert, bezeichnet und datiert: "WSt. Beetz 11' Ok. 94."; 24,8 x 45,2 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Zu Beginn seiner künstlerischen Karriere widmete sich Wilhelm Steinhausen fast ausschließlich religiösen Themen. Die Landschaft hat er erst Ende der 1870er Jahre während seines Aufenthalts auf Rügen als Bildthema für sich entdeckt. Es waren zunächst kleinformatige Arbeiten, ab Mitte der 80er Jahre wurde das Format größer, auch die Anzahl der Arbeiten stieg. Am Ende waren es etwa 600 Landschaftsbilder, die der Künstler hinterließ. Während seiner zahlreichen Reisen und Wanderungen schuf er Studien in Bleistift oder Aquarell, die ihm später als Vorlage für Gemälde dienten. 1894 besuchte er den Ort Beetz bei Kremmen in der Nähe von Berlin. Betrachtet man seine Landschaften der späteren Schaffensphase, die dank des weichen Farbauftrags und des frischen Kolorits flächig, fast impressionistisch wirken, versteht man seine Faszination für die Moorlandschaft bei Beetz sofort. Es ist eine Landschaft ohne feste Konturen, eine endlose Weite bis zum Horizont, kein Gegenstand über Kniehöhe stört den Blick in die Ferne. Ein Hirte sitzt am Rande eines schmalen Weges, einsam, in Begleitung weniger Schafe. Die Künstler des 19. Jahrhunderts haben das Moor als Seelenspiegel der Melancholie entdeckt. Der religiöse Künstler Steinhausen sah darin hauptsächlich das Bildnis des Göttlichen.

        The Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley

      London - Gibbings and Company Limited, 1894. London - Gibbings and Company Limited, 1894 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A handsome set of Shelley's Poetical Works in fine Bumpus bindings with binders stamp to front pastedown. A prizepresentation copy with ink inscriptions to front blank for St. Thomas' Hospital, London dated2 October 1897. In three volumes complete. Percy Bysshe Shelley(4 August 1792- 8 July 1822) was one of the major English Romantic poets and is critically regarded as among the finest lyric poets in the English language. Shelley was famous for his association with John Keats and Lord Byron. The novelist Mary Shelley (ne Godwin) was his second wife. Shelley's unconventional life and uncompromising idealism, combined with his strong disapproving voice, made him a marginalised figure during his life, important in a fairly small circle of admirers, and opened him to criticism as well as praise afterwards. Long after Shelley's death, Mark Twain took particular aim at Shelley indefence of Harriet Shelley, where he lambasted the 22-year-old Shelley for abandoning his pregnant 18-year-old wife and child to run off with the 16-year-old Mary Godwin. Shelley never lived to see the extent of his success and influence; although some of his works were published, they were often suppressed upon publication. He became an idol of the next three or four generations of poets, including important Victorian and Pre-Raphaelite poets. He was admired by Karl Marx, Oscar Wilde, Thomas Hardy, George Bernard Shaw, Bertrand Russell, William Butler Yeats, Upton Sinclair and Isadora Duncan. William Michael Rossetti (25 September 1829- 5 February 1919) was an English writer and critic. He was a son of immigrant Italian scholar Gabriele Rossetti, and the brother of Maria Francesca Rossetti, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Christina Georgina Rossetti. Condition: In handsome full calf bindings. Externally, smart with only minor wear to extremities and very slight marks to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean throughout but with slight marginal off setting from binding and the odd spot to endpapers. Overall: VERY GOOD.
