The English author Gissing was a brilliant student whose academic career was cut short when he was caught stealing from classmates while attempting to reform and support a young prostitute. He married the girl (the first of two miserable marriages) and began a life of constant drudgery and near poverty. The hardness of his life is reflected in the realism of his novels, which are also noted for their acute perception of the social position and psychology of women. .

        Majors and Minors: Poems by Paul Lawrence Dunbar

      Toledo, Ohio: Hadley & Hadley, Printers & Binders, (1895). First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 12mo, 148 pages, frontis portrait w/ tissue guard. Publisher's original gray cloth lettered in gilt on the upper cover. Blanck/ Bibliography of American Literature 4917. Moderately rubbed & soiled, corners bumped, text lightly toned mostly in the margins. African American poet, novelist, playwright, & essayist Paul Laurence Dunbar's second book. Presents poignant poetry with a variety of themes and in several styles. The more ambitious poems, those written in standard English, are under the heading "Majors," and the more superficial works, in African American dialect, as "Minors."Dunbar was born in Dayton, Ohio in 1872 to parents who had been slaves in Kentucky. His first poetry was published at age 16 and he died in 1906, just 33 years old. In the preface to his "Book of American Poetry," friend & fellow author James Weldon Johnson, who was also executive secretary of the NAACP, writes:"Paul Laurence Dunbar stands out as the first poet from the Negro race in the United States to show a combined mastery over poetic material and poetic technique, to reveal innate literary distinction in what he wrote, and to maintain a high level of performance. He was the first to rise to a height from which he could take a perspective view of his own race. He was the first to see objectively its humor, its superstitions, its short-comings; the first to feel sympathetically its heart-wounds, its yearnings, its aspirations, and to voice them all in a purely literary form."

        Cycles Gladiator. Bould. Montmartre.

      1895 1895 - Poster for Cycles Gladiator. Paris: Appel 1895. Published in "Les Maitres de l'Affiche", 1897. Plate no. 86. * Les Maîtres de l'Affiche (The Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 colour lithographic plates used to create a very significant art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art.By the 1890's the streets of French cities were enlivened by large, colourful posters. The poster had not only caught the fancy of the public, but its best examples were already being regarded as true works of art (specifically, as fine prints) to be exhibited, reviewed in journals, collected and reproduced in a more manageable form. In the last five years of the 19th century, Imprimerie Chaix was to play a great part in codifying, hallowing and perpetuating the ebullient spirit of the Belle Epoque. The renowned set of 256 prints were created by Imprimerie Chaix, forever to be known as a set as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche. Each print was rendered as a separate sheet measuring 11 x 15 inches. [27.9 x 38.1 cm]. The set was compiled in a unique way: Every month for 60 months - from December 1895 through November 1900 - subscribers received a wrapper containing four consecutively numbered prints. On 16 occasions (each of the five Decembers, each of the Junes, and the March and September of the final three years) the monthly wrapper also contained a bonus plate, not a poster reproduction but a specially created lithograph. The compilation of this set of original prints makes up the complete suite known as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche.

        3 Prints of Terrier dogs

      Signed lower in pencil in each print. 16 x 13-1/4 inches. Fine. Signed lower in pencil in each print. 16 x 13-1/4 inches. Kurt Meyer-Eberhardt, German (1895 - 1957) Kurt Meyer-Eberhardt is one of the most famous and revered 20th century dog artists. He was born in 1895 in Leipzig , Germany and died in Munich in 1977. He studied at the Weimar Academy of Fine Arts, where he became a student under the artists Theodor Hagen and Lionel Feininger. He rejected a professorship in Weimar and went to Munich in 1918, where he decided to work entirely on animal engravings. In 1926 he held his last exhibition in the "New Secession." He was a staunch individualist who rejected the offer of a professorship in Weimar because he valued his independence too much. The only thing he wanted was to continue depicting his beloved dogs, cats and other animals. His work has been published by the Hanfstaengl Publishing Company in Munich since 1917. His engravings are still published today at the printing shop in Munich - formally Franz Hanfstaengl, Munich . All etchings are still printed on 300lb hand made acid-free paper, printed by hand from the original copper plates, using the same directions as given by the artist himself.

        Prince Zaleski

      Boston, Roberts Brothers. 1895, 1895. First US Edition of the author's first book. 8vo. Near fine in publisher's blue grey cloth with some slight toning to the spine panel. Titled in gilt to spine and in black to front board with publisher's 'key' monogram in black to rear board. Internally bright and clean with Beardsley designed title page and front board decorations. A lovely copy of a scarce book. 'Matthew Phipps Shiel (his surname was originally spelled Shiell) (21 July 1865 ? 17 February 1947), was a prolific British (or perhaps more accurately West Indian) writer of fantastic fiction. He is remembered mostly for supernatural and scientific romances. His work was published as novels, short stories and as serials. A recently discovered scandal (involving, allegedly, his twelve year old stepdaughter; a resounding victory for Victorian morality) perhaps explains why his literary output suddenly dwindled in 1914.'

L'ouvrage est écrit dans la droite ligne de l'enseignement donné à la Salpêtrière par Charcot dont l'auteur fut l'élève, et dont il défendra la thèse par opposition à ses deux autres élèves, Freud et Babinski. En effet, Charcot définit l'Hystérie sous l'aspect de quatre stades : la période épileptoïde, la période du clownisme, la période des attitudes passionnelles et la période terminale avec souvent des hallucinations, stade qu'on observait sous hypnose. Gilles de la Tourette essaie donc de "reconnaître à l'hystérie des lois d'évolution [et] et un déterminisme particulier" et d'en faire "une maladie vraie, stable dans son incohérence qui est plus apparente que réelle". Étude bilan de l'enseignement dispensé à la Pitié. Bien complet du portrait frontispice à l'eau forte signé Desmoulin. De nombreuses figures en noir dans le texte, dessinées par Paul Richer, illustrent le propo de la thèse. Bel exemplaire. Dos passés, très légers frottements aux coiffes et aux coins.

        Journal des Goncourt

      - Paris- Bibliotheque Charpentier 1895 - A very attractive nine volume set of this work bound by Louis Conard. Complete in nine volumes. The comprehensive journals of the Goncourt brothers, Edmond and Jules de Goncourt, both French naturalism writers and collaborative sibling authors. The Goncourt brothers formed a partnership that is often viewed as unique in literary history. The brothers wrote their books together and did not spend time apart during their adult lives. They were only parted by the death of Jules in 1870. They are known for their literary work and for their diaries, which offer an intimate view into the French literary society of the later 19th century. The Goncourt brothers' career as writers began with an account of a sketching holiday together. They published books on aspects of 19th century French art and society, dismissing the vulgarity of the Second Empire in favour of a more refined age. They also published six novels of which one was based on the true case of their own maidservant, Rose Malinger, whose lived a double life. On his death, Edmond de Goncourt bequeathed his entire state for the foundation and maintenance of the Academie Goncourt which still awards one of the most important literary prizes in French Literature. Condition: Uniformly bound in half crushed morocco bindings by Louis Conard and original paper wraps bound in. Externally, very smart with some light rubbing and bumping. Internally, firmly bound. Pages untrimmed, age toned due to paper used but generally clean. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Photograph Album of 19th Century Czech Chemist in Mexico]: Nas domov v Mexiku. 1895. ["Our Home in Mexico"]

      - Oblong octavo. Measuring 10.5" x 7.5". Period morocco album titled in gilt on the front board: "Nas domov v Mexiku. 1895. [Our Home in Mexico]". Album contains 52 gelatin silver photographs, each image 7.5" x 4.5", and each captioned in Czech. A trifle rubbed at the extremities, the album is near fine, the images are fine.An excellent photographic album kept by a Czech chemist who specialized in the production of dynamite (his business card is laid in to the album describing himelf as "Chimiste de la Dynamite Nobel") who had emigrated to Mexico from Prague. From the photographic evidence in the album it appears that Jelinek settled somewhere in central Mexico and established a chemical laboratory specializing in explosives, presumably in support of the mining trades. The domestic photographs are quite interesting and illustrate the European furnishings of a well-to-do established household. They also include some striking portrait images of the couple transformed from stodgy European fashions to classic Mexican finery complete with silk rebozo for the lady and a sombrero for the gentleman. Also included are rooftop panoramas of the unmistakably Mexican town (although it is unidentified). Other images include local domestic help, and one image of a map of Mexico on the wall.There is a section of the album devoted to showing what the makeshift explosives laboratory looked like (it occupied the upper floors of a building, probably the building within which they were domiciled). An additional loose, boudouir-size cabinet photograph by R. Barajas depicts Jelinek's grave, indicating that he died in Mexico on 1 October 1897. The images are of excellent quality, and are useful in illustrating the lives of the expatriate Czech couple living in Mexico in the late 19th Century. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Scarce - Original Tuscan Wood Book Cover

      Italy, 1895. Siena, Tuscany, circa 1895. An original exquisite and pictorially symbolic Biccherna styled "tavolette" (wood book cover), coloured with tempera and mineral paint, hand crafted by famous Italian Sienese painter Icilio Federico Joni, who is especially remembered for his masterful reproductions of the medieval Biccherna covers. Slightly repurposed for the early nineteenth century, the boards are bound portfolio style with a leather spine for paper manuscripts as opposed to vellum, and further feature integral document pocket to each board, and an elegant floral patterned mint green satin lining. Also with a separate satin covered folder loosely placed within, bearing a metallic monogram 'MRS' fixed to upper corner, and containing four uninscribed double leafs. Volume measures 30,5 x 22 x 2,5 cm. Crack to front board resulting in some chips to paint, otherwise in very good condition, the boards retaining remarkable colour and stellar imagery. The Archives of the State of Siena holds a collection of original wood covers from the thirteenth to seventeenth centuries, currently displayed in the Palazzo Piccolomini, Museo delle Tavolette di Biccherna [Museum of Biccherna Tablets]. Having entered some of the most important book collections worldwide, including those of Borghese, Hoe and Wilmerding, Joni's nineteenth century tavolettes are in their own right exemplary works of high art, and are classified as some of the most valuable book covers today. In the late nineteenth century, Icilio Federico Joni (1866-1946) so skillfully reproduced Siena's original 'Tavolette della biccherna' that one could not easily differentiate between his work and earlier original. To perfect his craft, Joni studied written accounts of the medieval covers before meticulously creating his own. A highly celebrated self-professed forger, in 1932 he published an autobiography to describe his work, titled, "Le memorie di un pittore di quadri antichi" [Memoirs of a Painter of Antique Pictures]. In 1936 an English edition appeared, titled "The Affairs of a Painter." Joni essentially created an exclusive revival of the Tavolette di Biccherna, and produced an exceptionally symbolic motif with this example. Rendering a theme of prosperity, political grandeur, nobility and the artistry of the Middle Ages, he captured the essence of his city's ancestral legacy, while also memorializing the pivotal revolution of 1355. On the front board is a painting of "Pax", the Roman goddess of peace, sitting on her throne and holding an olive branch. One of three shields underneath the scene, albeit chipped, appears to read "LIBERTAS" (Freedom), which is reminiscent of the deposition of the Noveschi mercantile-banking oligarchy, and the foundation of a democratic government and civilian council, and is consistent with the theme depicted on the rear board. [Pax is Latin for Peace. In Roman mythology Pax was the goddess of peace, equivalent of the Greek goddess Eirene. Pax was first worshipped during the rule of Augustus. She had a magnificent temple (sanctuary) on the Campus Martius which was built by the emperor Vespasian and called the Ara Pacis, and another temple on the Forum Pacis. Pax was depicted in art with olive branches, a cornucopia and a scepter. A festival in her honor was held on January 3rd. The daughter of Jupiter and Justice, Peace was often associated with spring.] The manuscript text to the rear cover is in the medieval Siena dialect and commemorates the insurrection of 1355 which overthrew the Government of the Nine. Drawing from thirteenth and fourteenth century covers, this one reads: "Justa[?], e L'Entrata, e L'Escita, de la General, Gabella del Magnifico Comuno di Signa AD 1355" (Orders[?] & Income & Expenses of the General Gabella of the Magnificent City of Siena, 1355 AD). Also interesting to note, the text mentions the Gabella. Whilst commonly known that the Biccherna made painted wood covers in which to preserve the city's official ledgers, the artist may have been drawing attention to the lesser known fact that the custom was also practiced by the other financial judiciary of Siena - the Executors of the Gabella. [Ministeri del Tesoro e della Finanza Biccherna e Gabella: Ministries of the Treasury and Finance Biccherna and Gabella: The Gabella was responsible for collecting and managing gabelles, a form of taxation. The Biccherna was responsible for the administration of public revenues.] In keeping with custom, five coats of arms are depicted, three of which are illustrated with dragons, possibly representative of specific nobles from the district "Contrada del Drago" [Dragon] who served a term in the ministry of finance. Traditionally, the painted wood covers made in the Middle Ages for the financial accounts of the two Sinese magistracies Biccherna and Gabella, were inscribed in manuscript to date and denote its contents. Every six months a term ended, each of the Provveditori and Esecutori being replaced, and new registers begun. It was at this time that the boards of the retiring official would be painted, often bearing his family's arms and those of his colleagues, some allegory, or a notable event from his term, political or otherwise, depending on the era. These traditions are beautifully manifested in Joni's work. The Republic of Siena was a state originating from the city of Siena in Tuscany, in central Italy. It existed for over four hundred years, from the late 11th century until the year 1555. In 1286 the Nova government was established to rule Siena. The Nova was backed by the Noveschi, a political party formed by the noble families that sat on the council. Eventually, the Noveschi Party grew to include not only include members of the Nova council, but many prominent noble families of the city. Under the guide of the Nova and the Noveschi, Siena grew in both economic and militaristic dominance, enjoying a relatively trouble-free period of wealth and urban development. It also saw a surge in the arts during the rule of the "Government of the Nine" (1287-1355). Siena was one of the earliest and most important banking centers of Europe and Italy. While every city had an office for recording revenue and expenses, Siena was unique in that its officials gave special attention not only to the documents, but also to the books in which they were kept, in particular the covers. Beginning in 1257, wood covers were made to protect vellum manuscripts, the earliest being illustrated with scenes of important financial overseers (provvedditori) or men who were privvy to the secrets of the clergy (cameralingo), the coats of arms of these men, and sometimes depicting secrets known only to select officials. Allegorical, religious, and mythological scenes soon became popular, and by the mid-fifteenth century, covers were reflecting current events such as a monarch's coronation, natural disasters, grand celebrations. Although leather was used even earlier in bookbinding and eventually was the material of choice, wood was chosen for its weight, most often for the keeping of vellum manuscripts, in order to prevent the parchment from buckling. They were most often fastened with clasps and adorned with ivory or metal work. The tavolette (wood covers) of the Biccherna and Gabella were painted by a prominent artist. Alas, the Black Death Plague of 1348 decimated three fifths of the population. Some ill-fated financial enterprises and political turmoil also made room for a revolution. Subsequently, in 1355, with the arrival of Charles IV of Luxembourg in the city, the population rose and suppressed the government of the Nova council and expelled any family associated with the Noveschi Party. They established the Governo dei Dodici (Government of Twelve) being a government of twelve representatives of the people, assisted by a council of twelve nobles with a popular majority. This was to be short-lived, however, being replaced by the Quindici (Fifteen) reformers in 1385, the Dieci (Ten, 1386-1387), Undici (Eleven, 1388-1398) and Twelve Priors (1398-1399) who, in the end, relinquished the city's seigniory to Gian Galeazzo Visconti of Milan in order to defend it from the Florentine expansionism. . Very Good.

        [Blunt, Reginald-Inscribed, with W.M. Rossetti Letter & another] The Carlyle's Home

      London: George Bell and Sons, 1895. First edition. Original parchment backed, brown paper covered boards with elaborate gold blocked design on front cover. An eccentric book having to do with Carlyle's residence in No. 5 Cheyne Row, near where the Rossetti's lived (see ALS laid in); signed by the author Blunt on the title page. Inserted are two autograph letters in the text, The first appears at pp. 30-31, an autograph letter signed, 1 1/2 pages by F. D. Maurice (prolific author and Socialist) from Guys Hospital where he was chaplain: "My dear Pollock, ... I am afraid that I must break this engagement for Mrs. Maurice asked some relations of ours who are just returned from Australia here today & cannot put them off. You must either..." He continues in another vein, "You must either therefore carry your plan into effect... if you go, remember it is 5 Cheyne Row & not Walk at which Carlyle lives..." As well, an autograph letter from William Michael Rossetti appears opp. p.48, 2 1/2 pages on printed letterhead of 3 St. Edmund's Terrace, etc., 21 January, 1913, with the original holograph envelope to S. M. Ellis. Rossetti explains that his advanced age prevents a more detailed reply to his questions and responds, "My brother [i.e. Dante Gabriel Rossetti] with his 3 sub-tenants, entered on the tenancy of 16 Cheyn Walk in Oct. 1862. Meredith was there at times... He had a bedroom there, & also a sitting room... The idea that the house had been Sir Thomas More's (or rather that a house of his had been on the same site) was a sort of local tradition, but I suppose erroneous.. There was some notion about Princess (Queen) Elizabeth & a mulberry-tree in the garden was spoken as hers." A nice 'extra-illustrated' copy, assembled by the author himself obviously with two letters having to deal with tenants at Cheyne Row. Corners chipped, boards sl. worn, spine soiled, overall a very good copy of a fascinating assemblage.
