Furthermore, the inside front paper cover was torn, fortunately it has been rectified by the previous owner. Again like the first book it has clean pages throughout the whole book. It consists of the large ankus illustration on page 139 as well as the advertisements at the end pages that authenticates the true first printing in November 1895.

New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1895. by Wells, H[erbert] G[eorge] (Still not a popular author when this copy was published; the title page was changed to H. G.

Small octavo, 216 pages with no ads, 22 book titles listed under the "Buckram Series" books on the verso of the half title page (12 titles are listed in the first issue) inserted frontispiece (with tissue guard) with an illustration by W. B. Russell, original decorated tan buckram, front and spine panels stamped in gray purple ink with top page edges gilt, other edges untrimmed-the same as the first issue published by Holt Company. First edition, early printing of the author's first novel with author's name correctly printed as "H. G. WELLS" on recto of title leaf. The stamping on the spine is clearly legible, which is not common in these buckram books. The "Author's Note" following title page is still incorrectly printed "H. S. Wells" as was in the first American issue. The American edition of THE TIME MACHINE preceded the first English edition by several months and has textual differences that differ from the UK first edition. Later issues of the American printing of this title by Holt were bound in red or maroon cloth with Wells' name corrected. This second issue is in the decorated tan buckram cloth as is the first issue which adds some collectability to this book.

En 1867, il fut embauché à L'Univers, journal ultramontain et volontiers polémique dirigé par Louis Veuillot. Il subit également l'influence du philosophe catholique Ernest Hello. Buet fit un bref séjour à La Réunion, où il collabora au journal catholique local La Malle et, accusé par des périodiques concurrents d'histoires de mœurs, fut à l'origine d'émeutes qui eurent lieu à la fin novembre 1868, à la suite desquelles il dut quitter l'île. Il publia un ouvrage de souvenirs sur ce séjour (Trois mois à l'île Bourbon, Journal d'un étudiant), ainsi que deux livres sur Madagascar, où il n'était jamais allé.

Robert W. Chambers
F. Tennyson Neely, 1895. Hard Cover. A truly influential collection of supernatural tales; the most notable of Robert William Chambers' Gothic tradition. Neil Barron in his Horror Literature states: "'The Repairer of Reputations' is magnificently bizarre, and 'The Yellow Sign' is widely acknowledged as one of the finest horror stories ever written." Certain story elements were lightly borrowed from Ambrose Bierce, and continue in usage in the Yellow and Lovecraft Mythos. The most important of these motifs being "The King in Yellow," a play which causes madness and paranoia in its readers; this theme is most notably built upon in Lovecraft's The Whisperer in Darkness, and Chambers' motifs of Carcosa, The King in Yellow, and the Yellow Sign, are also heavily integrated into the modern television series, "True Detective." Slight toning to the title page, else no marks. Some specks of soiling to the binding, and silverfishing to the spine. First Edition; in the publisher's green cloth with maroon lettering, top edge gilt, published as part of F. T. Neely's Prismatic Library. 316 pp. with the publisher's advertising page at the rear. (Bleiler The Checklist of Fantastic Literature p. 74 | Barron Horror Literature 2-12 ). Very Good binding.

WILDE, Oscar.
London: Privately printed, 1895. Octavo. Original brown wrappers, front cover printed in red. Housed in a custom blue cloth chemise within green quarter morocco slipcase (colour retouched), spine lettered in gilt, blue cloth sides. Joints splitting along ends but still holding, wrapper extremities chipped. Still a very good, unsophisticated copy of this fragile volume. First edition in book-form, one of only 50 copies printed, and very rare in untouched state as here. Wilde's essay was first published in the Fortnightly Review magazine in February 1891, with this being its first separate publication. Publication thereafter used the full title of The Soul of Man Under Socialism, which remains in use. Wilde's essay, "perhaps the most memorable and certainly the most aesthetic statement of anarchist theory in the English language" (ODNB), marked his conversion to socialism, but Wilde framed his argument in a typically contrarian way, namely that in ending poverty the need for altruism will be removed and people can instead focus on aesthetics: "Socialism would relieve us from that sordid necessity of living for others which, in the present condition of things, presses so hardly upon almost everybody. Socialism itself will be of value simply because it will lead to Individualism". Mason 367. [Attributes: First Edition]

Ohne Datierung (ca. 1895). Format: 46 x 65 cm. *Rückseitig mit dem Nachlaßstempel und handschriftlicher Bezeichnung in Bleistift. Diese Zeichnung wurde 1918 versteigert auf der Auktion bei Prestel in Frankfurt Katalog 67: "Fritz Boehle: Nachlaß; seltene Druckgraphik, Handzeichnungen, Gemälde; Versteigerung am 11. Mai 1918", dort die Nummer 80. - Fritz Boehle, geboren 1873 in Emmendingen war tätig in Frankfurt a.M. als Maler, Zeichner, Bildhauer und Illustrator. Er starb bereits im Alter von 43 Jahren an Diabetes, 2 Jahre später wurde sein Nachlaß versteigert. Boehle malte traditionell und er erfuhr zu seiner Zeit eine hohe Würdigung seiner Kunst. Die Städelsche Galerie in Frankfurt enthielt zu seinen Lebzeiten schon 30 seiner Hauptwerke. Die volkstümlichen wie auch die heroischen Motive seiner Bilder trafen den Zeitgeschmack um und nach 1900. In einem Nachruf ehrte ihn Ludwig Barth mit den Worten: "Als Radierer und Maler war Boehle vollendeter Meister [...] Fast auf keinem Bild fehlt das Pferd, ebenfalls als Ausdruck deutscher Kraft und Ritterlichkeit. Einer der ganz Großen ist mit diesem Künstler dahingegangen, dessen Bedeutung jetzt noch nicht zu ermessen ist; denn außer Hans Thoma kam heute keiner dem deutschen Volksempfinden näher als Fritz Boehle" (aus "Die Christliche Kunst", 1916). - 2 kleinere alt hinterlegte Randeinrisse am rechten Seitenrand.

W.B. Yeats
London: T. Fisher Unwin? Copeland & Day, 1895. Scarce first state of the first US edition with both US (Copeland & Day) and UK (Fisher Unwin) publishers slugs (names) on spine, but with UK title page, top edge ungilt. (Later states of the US edition have the Boston Copeland & Day publisher on the title page and gilt top edge.) I don't know if this is one of the 750 copies of the first UK edition with a variant spine for the US market, but nonetheless very uncommon. Nice tight copy, mildly dusty, some very light spotty staining to cloth, gilding fresh and bright all over. Spine slightly darkened. Some creasing and fraying to top and bottom of spine, spots on spine, shelf wear to bottom edge, with some fraying at corners. Internally very clean with contemporary owners name and date top front free endpaper. See photos. Shipping continental USA only. FREE shipping. [Attributes: First Edition]

Photographer not identified
New York: 1895. Two photographs, the first measuring about 8" x 6", the other about 9.5" x 6.5", each mounted to cardstock. The smaller one shoes mild wear to extremities of the mount, but the photograph quite well-preserved. The second has two chips at two corners, but is otherwise clean and bright. The smaller and more striking photograph depicts a group of eleven men, some in uniform, inside a trolley car, laden with pots and mans, clothing, and other evidence of having been somewhat "lived-in." Their facial expressions suggest a certain degree of boredom, and possible drunkenness. There are five inked names, some only partially legible, at the bottom edge of the mount. On the verso of the mount is written, "My father with the Seventh Regiment during a strike in N. Y." The slightly larger image is a more standard, though still somewhat informal portrait of Company K of the 7th regiment (according to contemporary pencil notations on verso). The photograph is dated February 1895, which dates it to weeks after the strike began. Based on our understanding, the trolley strike was opposed by the operating company, and they received help from the Seventh Regiment of the New York state National Guard to protect replacement workers who would agree to the company's employment terms. The strikers fought back, and there was some exchange of gunfire, but the strike ultimately failed. These photographs offer a rare glimpse into a documented pre-1900 labor strike, back when these sorts of confrontations were often violent, and workers could expect no help or protection from law enforce … [Click Below for Full Description]

WOMEN'S HISTORY & LITERATURE - SUFFRAGE] STANTON, Elizabeth
New York: December 8th, [1895?]. Brief but significant missive addressed to Parker Pillsbury, the American minister and women's suffrage advocate, regarding a copy of Stanton's "Woman's Bible" she had just sent him. "I wonder if I could interest them [a "Mrs. White" and one other] sufficiently in the Woman's Bible to sell ten or twenty copies in there [sic] respective woman's clubs? It is published at my expense, hence I am trying to push its circulation." The controversial "Woman's Bible," a series of commentaries pertaining to the portions of the Bible relating to women, was published in two parts, in 1895 and 1898, and composed almost entirely by Stanton alone, her committee of Bible revisors finding the project too controversial and harmful to the cause of women's suffrage. Clearly at the time of writing this letter the book was still meeting with resistance (thus our placing the date at around 1895), Stanton turning to Pillsbury as a potential source of influential and wealthy patrons (she inquires "Is Mrs. White still living & working? Is that rich woman that Mr. [illegible] used to visit in Maine living?"). But by 1897 the book had become a best seller, though many of the members of the women's suffrage movement would continue to distance themselves from it. This letter quite significant as a testimony to the aging Stanton, organizer of the historical 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, and her continuing indefatigable efforts, and initial lack of support, in getting this work circulated.

Original 1895 11-Volume Set Minutes Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania Masonic History Original 1895 (124 years ago) 11-Volume Set from the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania - Each volume has well over 500 pages of Pennsylvania Freemasonry History! The official title is: "Reprint of the Minutes of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Pennsylvania" While it says "Reprint" - this is not to be confused with the actual reprints available on Amazon and such today - this is the real deal! "Reprint" references the re-transcribing of records going back to 1779. This complete set was published in 1895 (124 years ago) and chronicles Pennsylvania Masonry from a period of 1779 through 1874. The Set was apparently originally issued to Charity Lodge No. 190 in Norristown, Pennsylvania which is still in existence. Some of the gilded lettering is fading from the first couple volumes but otherwise in great condition for something of this timeframe. I acquired the collection from an estate sale in Arizona so the books have "done some traveling..." I paid a lot of money to rescue the collection so please don't beat me up on the price. _gsrx_vers_854 (GS 7.0.18 (854)).
