        A DOZEN ALL TOLD

      1894. Being a Set of Twelve Stories by [twelve different authors] with Twelve Illustrations by [twelve different illustrators]. London: Blackie and Son, 1894. Original dark blue cloth decorated in orange and green. First Edition of this anthology of twelve original tales (for adults) accompanied by twelve illustrations. Henty's contribution is "A Shark's Fin" (illustrated by Frank Brangwyn) -- which Newbolt notes is "probably his only adult fiction published by Blackie." Newbolt also notes that there is no copy at the British Library.~This copy is in very good-plus condition (minor rubbing at the extremities). Quite a difficult book for Henty collectors to find. Newbolt 141.1.

        Le Livre des Splendeurs contenant le Soleil judaïque, la Gloire chrétienne et l'Etoile flamboyante. 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.

There has yet been no writer of short stories in English to challenge his achievement, which ranges through space from India to the home counties, and through time from Stone Age man to the contemporary world of football matches and motor cars. These stories, moreover, exhibit every kind of treatment, from the farcical to the tragic, and their structures vary from the simplest anecdote to the most complex and allusive philosophical fiction, dense enough to support endless exegesis and commentary.

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.

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.

        Descriptive Log. Being a Record of a Voyage from Belfast via Glasgow to our Colonies Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane in the Good Ship Torr Head, Twin Screw Steamer kept by the 4th Off. C.W. Loughridge." October 1904 - January 1905

      Small 8vo journal. Unpaginated. About 200 pages of manuscript entries The Torr Head was a twin screw steamer launched at Belfast in 1894. She was sunk by a German U Boar in 1917. Loughridge provides a very close record of life at sea and of the specifics of managing vessel, cargo, and passengers - "The 'landlubber' has got it into his novel-crammed brain that the Bay of Biscay is a wild tumultuous waste of raving roaring billows..." He has illustrated his journal with pen and ink drawings, watercolors, and three tipped in photographs (the photos are faded almost beyond recognition). The drawings and watercolors spice up what is already a lively narrative. He also gives an excellent account of his time in "sunbaked Brisbane." Clean and legible

The plates are engraved on wood and printed on vellum in "Gillotage," an early form of photolithography invented by Grasset’s friend Firmin Gillot.

        Tales of Mean Streets

      London, Methuen. 1894. London, Methuen. 1894, 1894. First Edition. 8vo. 301pp + 32pp ads dated October 1894. Publisher's olive green cloth titled in gilt to spine and front boards. Contemporary Rockwell Kent-designed bookplate to front pastedown. Minor wear. A bright, near fine copy. Published in the same year as 'A Child of The Jago' this book is part of Morrison's 'slums of London' cycle that ends with 'The Hole In The Wall' in 1902. With his gritty depictions of the moral and social compromises necessary for survival in such dreadful places, and his unwillingness to take a critical stance regarding his characters and their predicament, Morrison stands out as far superior to the standard crop of God-bothering 'urban reform through fiction' mongers that the late Victorian age spewed forth in their dozens. A lovely copy of a scarce and admirable book. Eric Quayle; Detective Fiction.
