London: H.S. Nichols & Co, 1894. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I can provide a link to many more photos. Just ask! 1894 Arabian Nights Entertainments Sinbad Illustrated Burton Arab Erotica 12v "A loss that can be repaired by money is not of such very great importance." - The Arabian Nights During the Golden Age of Islam in South and West Asia, a collection of tales and stories was gathered and called "One Thousand and One Arabian Nights". It was first translated into French by Antoine Galland in 1704-17 and helped establish a positive attitude toward Islam in the Western world. It is often known in English as the Arabian Nights. The famous Richard Burton translation was one of the only unabridged English translation done in the 19th-century. It gained its popularity through Burton's use of sexual imagery and his adding extensive and descriptive footnotes about Oriental sexual practices. At the time of publication, there were strict laws on obscenity in written material, and this edition was often considered pornographic. Even though Burton's language was called 'archaic' and 'over-sexualized,' it was still popular amongst subscribers and the general public alike. This 1894 printing was the first edition edited by Leonard Smithers and features 71 impressive full-page engravings. Item number: #6622 Price: $750 BURTON, Richard F.

1894 THOUSAND NIGHTS AND A NIGHT CAPTAIN SIR R.F. BURTON TWELVE VOLUMES Description One Thousand and One Nights is a collection of Middle Eastern and South Asian stories and folk tales compiled in Arabic during the Islamic Golden Age. It is often known in English as the Arabian Nights, from the first English language edition (1706), which rendered the title as The Arabian Nights' Entertainment. The work was collected over many centuries by various authors, translators and scholars across the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa. The tales themselves trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Persian, Indian, Turkish,Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore and literature. In particular, many tales were originally folk stories from the Caliphate era, while others, especially the frame story, are most probably drawn from the Pahlavi Persian work Hazar Afsan which in turn relied partly on Indian elements. THE BOOK OF THE THOUSAND NIGHTS AND A NIGHT Translated from the Arabic by Captain Sir R.F. Burton Published in 1894 Bound hardback with beautiful decorative embossed boards. Light shelfwear and mild foxing. Would make a fine addition to any library. Track Page Views With Auctiva's FREE Counter.

Los Angeles: B. R. Baumgardt & Co., 1894. Wraps. Good - The spine is worn, exposing the gatherings and sewing; yet a portion of the title survives and is still visible on the spine. The book is otherwise intact and clean with no torn pages or blemishes.. n. Small octavo (7 3/4 X 5 1/4 inches) [9] 10-457 (1) pages plus [16] pages of ads, captioned photomechanical illustrations, folding street map of Los Angeles (tract map on reverse). A fragile and elusive item. From The Dawson Eighty number 33: "Of the many guide books produced for visitors to Southern California around the beginning of the twentieth century, [this guide book] stands alone as the most interesting, detailed and inclusive of them all." "The first one hundred pages contain information on the early history of the region emphasizing the years of the Mexican governors and the Americanization in the late 1840s. The missions of California are individually profiled. Next there is a general survey of the ten counties of Southern California with a particular focus on Los Angeles, its metropolis. Almost all of the rest of the book is divided into chapters tracing railroad routes to and from Los Angeles, with narrative descriptions along the way. James himself took these routes and wrote 'Most of the descriptions have been written on the spot , and are records of actual impressions received at the time.' The impressions and observations are replete with detail. As a consequence, the guide book covers numerous towns and other local features-many no longer in existence-from San Luis Obispo and Kern Counties to San Diego … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kipling, Rudyard
London: Macmillan, 1894-95. First editions of both volumes of The Jungle Book. Octavo, two volumes, original blue cloth decorated and lettered in gilt, all edges gilt, engraved frontispiece with tissue guard present. Illustrated by J. L. Kipling, W.H. Drake and P. Frenzeny. In very good condition. The Jungle Book is a collection of fables which provide moral instruction by using animals anthropomorphically. Each story begins and ends with a verse, and the original publications contain some illustrations created by Rudyard's father John Lockwood Kipling. The inspiration for the book is evident. Kipling was born in India, and he spent his childhood there. Interestingly, Kipling wrote these stories when he lived in Vermont. The Jungle Book is used to develop the morale of the junior element of the Scouting movement, "The Cub Scouts". The name of the head wolf "Akela" has been traditionally given to each Cub Scout pack leader. At least fifteen movies were released based on Kipling's stories, beginning with Elephant Boy in 1937. A live-action anticipated version of Jungle Book will be released in October of 2018 by Warner Brothers.

Moore, George
Walter Scott, 1894. First edition. 375, [1], [14 (ads)] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Inscribed Presentation Copy. Original green cloth. Hinges cracked, spine a little faded and covers slightly rubbed. Gilcher A19. Esther Waters established Moore's reputation as a novelist: 24,000 copies were sold within the year, and many still regard Moore's Zolaesque tale of a servant girl to be his finest and most characteristic novel. Esther Waters, like Moore's earlier books, was banned by Mudie's and Simth & Son circulating libraries. Moore's novels, with his insistence on issuing all of his novels after the first in single-volume format to appeal directly to the book-buying public, were one of the major factors in the collapse of the circulating libraries and the demise of the Victorian triple-decker. Inscribed presentation copies are rare, but the title page of this copy bears the following inscription: "To Evelyn Marshall Field, with many kind wishes, George Moore 1915." Evelyn Field was the wife of Marshal Field, 3rd, grandson of the famous Chicago merchant. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Octavo, bound in full morocco with gilt titles and tooling to the spine in six compartments within gilt raised bands, morocco spine labels, double gilt ruled to the front and rear panel, inner dentelles, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. In fine condition. Housed in a custom slipcase. A very attractive example. Best known for his detective fiction featuring the character Sherlock Holmes, Scottish author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a prolific writer and touched on a wide range of topics, both fictional and non-fictional. Throughout his career Doyle published over 200 stories and articles including volumes of poetry, historical fiction, mysteries, and adventures. The fictional private detective Sherlock Holmes became immensely popular with his first appearance in a series of short stories in The Strand Magazine, beginning with "A Scandal in Bohemia" in 1891. Additional tales appeared from then until 1927, eventually totaling four novels and 56 short stories. Widely considered a British cultural icon, Sherlock Holmes and his stories have had a profound and lasting effect on mystery writing, with the original tales as well as thousands written by authors other than Conan Doyle being adapted into stage and radio plays, television, films, video games, and other media for over a century.

Shannon, Charles
n.p. [1894]. A lovely lithograph printed in green ink by Charles Hazelwood Shannon. It is an image of three bending nude female figures and appeared in #2 of "The Dial." Shannon and Ricketts were artistic and personal partners for more than fifty years. They designed and illustrated books, founded "The Dial" magazine and Vale Press, and were key figures in the London cultural world. The 4 x 5.5 inch print is on a sheet of 11 x 14 inch paper. There are a few small creases and light brown spots along the paper margins, not affecting the illustration. Said to be from the collections of T. Sturge Moore and his daughter Henrietta but there is no evidence of provenance. Very good condition. ORIG/092413. Very Good.

BERNHARDT
1894. Que Dieu vous donne le bonheur" (May God Grant you happiness or success or good fortune) showing her three quarters length in the role of Sardou's Gismonda, in a magnificent Arts and Crafts frame, 6½" x 4¼", in frame 14" x 10", no place, The New York Times of 26th November 1894 wrote "BERNHARDT AS GISMONDA; Paris Enthusiastic Over Her Acting in Sardou's Play. GREATEST OF HER ARTISTIC TRIUMPHS. It would be easy to say that Sardou had never been thus triumphant, Bernhardt never so perfect, stage mounting never more exquisitely beautiful, or costumes as magnificent, and, finally, that no play has ever been better cast than "Gismonda." This would be no exaggeration; it would be only the truth, but the subject demands minute description."

Tutto ricomposto tramite intelaiatura, senza mancanze. Incorniciato di recente, con margini ben visibili. Nel complesso, in straordinarie condizioni di conservazione. Rarissimo poster originale, il primo disegnato dal maestro inglese. «In many respects the Avenue bill must be considered the best poster which so far has come from this artist's hands» (Hiatt). -- «Early in 1894 the actress (and novelist) Florence Farr asked Beardsley to design a program for the Todhunter play, 'A Comedy of Sighs', which, with Yeats's 'The Land of Heart's Desire', was produced at the Avenue Theatre on 29 March 1894. [...]. Depicting a typical "Beardsley woman" peering through a partially transparent curtain, this was one of the most striking poster designs of the 1890s» (Centennial Exhibit Princeton). -- «Aubrey Beardsley's first poster, Avenue Theatre, 'A Comedy of Sighs!', 1894, was said to have "dropped a bombshell" and "changed the whole idea of the poster in England". A year after the controversial poster appeared on the walls, Hiatt described its initial reception: "Nothing so compelling, so irresistible, had ever been posted on the hoardings of the metropolis before [...]» (Iskin, citando Hiatt). -- Siamo stati in grado di localizzare il solo esemplare del MoMa New York (cfr.
