        J'Accuse...! Lettre au President de la Republique [The Dreyfus Affair]

      Paris: L'Aurore. First edition, First printing. Original wrappers, custom box. Very Good. THE LEGENDARY "J'ACCUSE...!" BY EMILE ZOLA. THE ORIGINAL FIRST PRINTING, FIRST APPEARANCE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT PUBLICATION ASSOCIATED WITH THE DREYFUS AFFAIR; A CORNERSTONE EVENT IN MODERN JEWISH AND EUROPEAN HISTORY. The Dreyfus Affair "centred on the question of the guilt or innocence of army captain Alfred Dreyfus, who had been convicted of treason for allegedly selling military secrets to the Germans in December 1894. At first the public supported the conviction; it was willing to believe in the guilt of Dreyfus, who was Jewish. Much of the early publicity surrounding the case came from anti-Semitic groups... to whom Dreyfus symbolized the supposed disloyalty of French Jews. "The effort to reverse the sentence was at first limited to members of the Dreyfus family, but, as evidence pointing to the guilt of another French officer, Ferdinand Walsin-Esterhazy, came to light from 1896, the pro-Dreyfus side slowly gained adherents... The accusations against Esterhazy resulted in a court-martial that acquitted him of treason (January 1898). To protest against the verdict, the novelist Emile Zola wrote a letter titled 'J'accuse', published in Clemenceau's newspaper L'Aurore. In it he attacked the army for covering up its mistaken conviction of Dreyfus" (Britannica). "In Paris and throughout France, the impact of 'J'accuse...!' was enormous. Anti-Semitic demonstrations took place immediately in the Latin Quarter, and the unrest increased in the two days that followed. On 17 January, 3,000 demonstrators marched through the streets of Nantes; in the next few days, the disturbances spread to as many as fifty towns and cities, among them Angers, Bordeaux, Dijon, Marseille, Nancy and Rennes, marking the beginning of what Pierre Birnbaum has called the 'anti-Semitic moment', a 'pogrom without fatalities' that continued, to varying degrees, until the summer of 1899. On 18 January, a serious outbreak of violence tool place in Algiers, where the Jewish quarter was sacked and a number of deaths were reported. 'J'accuse...!' was also the catalyst that relaunched and strengthened the Dreyfusard movement. The small core of Dreyfus' supporters regained the confidence it had lost with Esterhazy's acquittal, and the first result was the organisation of two petitions in favour of a judicial review of the Dreyfus case... Many distinguished academics ... signed the petition in the first days as did numerous writers and artists: there were finally 1,482 signatures in 38 lists... The petitions... marked the birth of the modern idea of the intellectual committed, as a member of the group, to the support of a moral or political cause" (The Cambridge Companion to Zola). "Zola was brought to trial on Feb. 7, 1898, and was sentenced to one year's imprisonment and a fine of 3,000 francs after being found guilty of libel. As a result of the new attention focused on the affair, Dreyfus underwent a new court-martial. Although still found guilty, he was pardoned by the president of the republic. Not until 1906 was Dreyfus cleared of all wrongdoing" (Britannica). The Dreyfus Affair was enormously significant in Jewish history. For Theodore Herzl, it was important in giving birth to modern Zionism. "Herzl had been present at the Dreyfus degradation on that January day, as a journalist for a Viennese paper, and if one moment engraved his sense that Jews could never find a safe home in Europe this was it: 'It has been established that justice could be refused to a Jew for the sole reason that he was a Jew.' Dreyfus, the perfect case of attempted assimilation, 'signifies a strategic position which . . . is already lost.' This insight, repeated and made programmatic in the Zionist project, was seemingly vindicated by what happened during the Second World War, when the members of the Dreyfus family, who had fought for France so often and so patriotically, were, like all French Jews, forced into hiding; Alfred's favorite granddaughter, Madeline, a Resistance fighter, was deported by the Vichy state and died at Auschwitz, age twenty-five... "The Dreyfus affair matters not because of the parallel with our time but because it was one of the first tests of modern pluralist liberalism and its institutions-a test that those institutions somehow managed to pass and fail at the same time. In France a century ago, the system finally worked, as they used to say after Watergate. The good guys rallied around, the courts did their job, Dreyfus was vindicated and came home to his family. Yet what the system exposed as it worked was, in a way, worse than the injustice it remedied. It showed that a huge number of Europeans, in a time largely smiling and prosperous, liked engaging in raw, animal religious hatred, and only felt fully alive when they did. Hatred and bigotry were not a vestige of the superstitious past but a living fire-just what comes, and burns, naturally. (Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker, September 28, 2009). IN: L'Aurore, 13 January 1898. Large (18 x 24 inches) folio; four pages (as issued); handsomely boxed. Closed tear at middle horizontal fold, some toning, light chipping to edges; stain around "J" of "J'Accuse"; remnants of early stamps. A rare survival of an extremely fragile item.

        The Works. [Method and Results; Darwiniana; Science and Education; Science and Hebrew Tradition; Science and Christian Tradition; Hume; Man's Place in Nature; Discourses; Evolution and Ethics.]

      New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1894 - 9 volumes, octavo (210 x 140 mm). Contemporary red half morocco, marbled sides, raised bands, titles and decorations to compartments gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Extremities slightly rubbed, occasional minor wear to corners, margins of text blocks faintly toned. An excellent set. Author's edition, one of 1,000 numbered sets collecting works by the British biologist and science educationist Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–1895). "Huxley published over 400 essays, papers, letters, reviews, and books. Many of his papers on invertebrate anatomy and vertebrate palaeontology were amassed by Foster and Lankester into five volumes as The Scientific Memoirs of Thomas Henry Huxley (1898–1903) and Huxley had himself republished his best articles in nine volumes of Collected Essays (1893–4)—a tenth was in preparation but never appeared. For the fast wit, famous irony, suave hectoring, and commonsense cleverness in these essays, Huxley was declared 'perhaps the greatest virtuoso of plain English who has ever lived' (Fawcett, 208). With their reinterpretation of duty, belief, and morality in a secularizing, industrializing culture, they provide a partisan insight into the Victorian move to a naturalistic world-view" (ODNB).

The present collection represents five of the eight short stories that appeared in The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard and an extraordinary opportunity to acquire a significant portion of one of Conan Doyle';s most impressive creations. The manuscript of "The Medal of Brigadier Gerard" is in fine condition; the binding lightly rubbed; the other manuscripts, which have been assembled using revisions written on separate pieces of paper, usually of a smaller size, or cut down to a smaller size, and inserted or taped to the original drafts, are in very good condition, with a few tears and stains; the front hinge of the binding is cracked, and the top panel of the spine is detached (but retained). Provenance: By descent from Herbert F. Gunnison "The Medal of Brigadier Gerard", here first titled "The Mission of Brigadier Gerard", with the word "Mission" crossed out and the word "Medal" written above, was written in 1894 and is the first short story in Conan Doyle';s Brigadier Gerard saga. In their account of Conan Doyle';s serial publications, his bibliographers Green and Gibson give both the English title "?How the Brigadier Won His Medal';", and the American title "?The Medal of the Brigadier';", as the story was originally published in the separate English and American issues of the Strand magazine in 1894. Green and Gibson also note that the first American periodical publication was by a Newspaper Syndicate [abbreviation "N.S.", G & G, p. 404], referring to the Bacheller Syndicate. As noted above, the present manuscripts were given by Bacheller to his friend and fellow journalist Herbert Foster Gunnison. Irving Bacheller (1859-1950), author, journalist and editor, began his career as a journalist in Brooklyn in 1882, but a few years later founded the first modern American newspaper syndicate, the Bacheller Syndicate, to provide literature and other articles to Sunday newspapers. Among the authors whose work he represented were Arthur Conan Doyle, Stephen Crane, Joseph Conrad, and Rudyard Kipling. In the 1890s, Bacheller began to write fiction and gave up his career in journalism to pursue literature, becoming a best-selling author with such works as Eben Holden (1900), D';ri and I (1901), The Light in the Clearing (1917), and A Man for the Ages (1920). Herbert Foster Gunnison (1858-1932) was a Brooklyn newspaperman associated with the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, where he worked from 1882, eventually becoming its President in 1924.In 1894, the indefatigable American impresario Major James Pond organized a lecture tour for Conan Doyle, who arrived in New York on October 2 and appeared in thirty cities before returning to England on December 8th. It was on this tour and in this way that Conan Doyle introduced Brigadier Gerard to the public, first in America, in advance of its periodical publication in the Strand later the same year. "Conan Doyle had read it ["?How the Brigadier Won His Medal,'; the new character';s debut"] aloud to audiences in America, whose generous responses encouraged him to think he had a success on his hands. . . . he quickly turned out another seven adventures. These also appeared in the Strand throughout 1895, and were collected in book form as The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard. Thoug [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

The book describes the social life of the wolf pack and, more fancifully, the justice and natural order of life in the jungle. Among the animals whose tales are related in the work are Akela the wolf; Baloo the brown bear; Shere Khan, the boastful Bengal tiger who is Mowgli's enemy; Kaa the python; Bagheera the panther; and Rikki-tikki-tavi the mongoose" (Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature).

(Richmond, Virginia), 5 1/2 x 7 5/8 inches tall green cloth hardbound, no dust jacket, gilt lettering to front cover and spine, floral endpapers, 287 pp. (266 pp., followed by an eight-page index and 12 pages of period advertisements). Moderate soiling, rubbing and edgewear to covers, with bumping to all four tips. Period three-entry errata glued to front pastedown. Nicely inscribed by the author in the year of issue on the blank front free-endpaper ('For Mrs. Effinger with the compliments of The Authoress, June 27, 1894'). Red ink marginal notations to a half dozen pages, mostly noting the errata. Erased pencil notations to blank rear free-endpaper. Otherwise, apart from slight marginal soiling to a couple of pages, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of this uncommon First Families of Virginia (F.F.V.) recipe book, quite rare as a presentation copy. According to the publisher's 1894 listing, 'Contains over eight hundred receipts, including all the favorite old Virginia receipts, menus for dinners and luncheons, rules for serving wines, etc., etc.' ~SS~ The author, Jane Millicent Powell McPhail (1842 - 1907) was a lifelong resident of Virginia, and wife of a Confederate Army officer, Capt. Clement Carrington McPhail, who was in command of the arsenal at Ashville, North Carolina and then Columbia, South Carolina. The First Families of Virginia were those families in Colonial Virginia who were socially prominent and wealthy, but not necessarily the earliest settlers. They descended from English colonists who primarily settled at Jamestown, Williamsburg, and along the James River and other navigable waters in Virginia during the 17th century. These elite families generally married within their social class for many generations and, as a result, most surnames of First Families date to the colonial period. The American Revolution cut ties with Britain but not with its social traditions. While some First Family members were loyal to Britain, others were Whigs who not only supported, but led the Revolution. Most first families remained in Virginia, where they flourished as tobacco planters, and from the sale of slaves to the cotton style. Indeed, many younger sons were relocated into the cotton belt to start their own plantations. The Civil War devastated the Virginia economy, and emancipated all the slaves without compensation. Planters and small farmers both were economically hurt, but in general the First Families, albeit poorer than before, maintained social and political leadership. Marshall Fishwick says that by the 1950s, 'the old-time aristocracy [had] not given up, or sunk into decadence as Southern novelists suggest.' They adopted modern agricultural technology and co-opted rich 'Yankees' into their upper-class, rural horse-estate society. New York restaurant Tipsy Parson is named for a recipe from this book for a sherry-drenched sponge-cake trifle - 'when saturated with the wine, pour over it a rich boiled custard flavored with what you like and stick blanched almonds thick all over the top.'

        The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson And the Comedy of Those Extraordinary Twins

      American Publishing Company, Hartford 1894 - 432 pages with illustrated with frontispiece from photograph of Twain with tissue-guard; marginal drawings throughout. Octavo(9" x 6 1/4") bound in original rust decorative cloth, lettered in gilt, grey end-papers and red sprinkled edges. (BAL:3442) First American Edition, First Issue. With BAL first issue points: title page integrally bound (not on a stub), frontispiece with Twain's facsimile autograph 1-7/16" wide, and sheets bulk 1-1/8." Pudd'nhead Wilson is a novel by Mark Twain. It was serialized in The Century Magazine (1893–4), before being published as a novel in 1894. The setting is the fictional Missouri frontier town of Dawson's Landing on the banks of the Mississippi River in the first half of the 19th century. David Wilson, a young lawyer, moves to town and a clever remark of his is misunderstood, which causes locals to brand him a "pudd'nhead")—a nitwit. His hobby of collecting fingerprints does not raise his standing in the townsfolk's eyes, who see him as an eccentric and do not frequent his law practice. Pudd'nhead Wilson moves into the background as the focus shifts to the slave Roxy, her son, and the family they serve. Roxy is only one-sixteenth black, and her son Valet de Chambre (referred to as "Chambers") is only 1/32 black. Roxy is principally charged with caring for her inattentive master's infant son Tom Driscoll, who is the same age as her own son. After fellow slaves are caught stealing and are nearly sold "down the river", to a master further south, Roxy fears for her life and the life of her son. First she decides to kill herself and Chambers to avoid being sold down the river, but then decides instead to switch Chambers and Tom in their cribs so that her son will live a life of privilege. The narrative moves forward two decades, and Tom Driscoll (formerly Valet de Chambre), believing himself to be wholly white and raised as a spoiled aristocrat, has grown to be a selfish and dissolute young man. Tom's father has died and granted Roxy her freedom. Roxy worked for a time on river boats, and saved money for her retirement. When she finally is able to retire, she discovers that her bank has failed and all of her savings are gone. She returns to Dawson's Landing to ask for money from Tom. Tom meets Roxy with derision and Roxy tells him that he is her son, and uses this fact to blackmail him into financially supporting her. Twin Italian noblemen visit the town to some fanfare, and Tom quarrels with one. Then at last, desperate for money, Tom robs and murders his wealthy uncle and the blame falls wrongly on one of the Italians. Thereafter the story takes on the form of a crime novel. In a courtroom scene, the whole mystery is solved when Wilson demonstrates, through fingerprints, that Tom is both the murderer, and not the real Driscoll heir. The book ends in bitter irony. Although the real Tom Driscoll is restored to his rights, his life changes for the worse, for having been raised a slave, he feels intense unease in white society, while as a white man he is forever excluded from the company of blacks. In a final twist, the murdered man's creditors successfully petition the governor to have Tom's death sentence overturned. Now that he is shown to be black, he is a slave, and as such, is rightfully their property. His sale "down the river" helps them recoup their losses. Condition: Corners gently bumped, previous ownership tag to front pastedown else a better than very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
