        ALMAYER'S FOLLY

      1895. [with a relevant 1897 letter] A Story of an Eastern River. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1895. Original dark olive green cloth. First Edition of Joseph Conrad's first book, an edition believed to have consisted of 1000-1250 copies. Conrad, after meeting the real "Olmeijer" in East Borneo in 1887, gradually produced the manuscript of this book over the six years 1889-1895. He submitted it to Unwin for consideration in their "Pseudonym Library", using the pseudonym "Kamudi" (Malayan for "rudder") -- enclosing the return postage, so sure was he of its rejection. However, Unwin's reader Edward Garnett saw the manuscript's promise and accepted it for non-pseudonymous publication.~This copy is in the first state (as are most copies), with the letters missing from the last two lines of page 110. Condition is nearly fine, with virtually no wear at all: there are some faint droplet-marks on the rear cover, and a little foxing on a few leaves. Cagle A1a.1.~THIS IS A REMARKABLE ASSOCIATION COPY, INCLUDING A RELEVANT 1897 LETTER. As indicated by his paste-down bookplate, his half-title signature, and his title page ink-stamp, this was the copy of L.C. Casartelli. Louis Charles Casartelli (1852-1925) was an academic in the field of Eastern religions, the author of numerous books in that field between 1882 and 1908, and a professor at the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium). In 1878 he had also become an ordained priest of the Catholic Church; in 1903 he was elevated to the post of 4th Diocesan Bishop of Salford (the Manchester-Liverpool area), a post he held until his death.~Tipped to the front endpaper is an autograph letter signed TO Casartelli from [Father Thomas] Jackson, who had been the first Prefect Apostolic of the Catholic Church in (British North) Borneo -- having been named to that post in the 1880s, after being Chaplain to the troops in Kandahar. With a return address of "St. Peter's School, Freshfield [Liverpool]", and dated May 30th 1897, Jackson's letter reads:~I return, with many thanks, the book you kindly lent to me [this copy!]. I have never heard of Joseph Conrad. Whoever he be, he certainly knows the ways of the people who live in Borneo. His descriptions are very life-like. His story is certainly founded on fact too. The Captain Lingard, whom he mentions so often, was a real personage. He has not even changed the name. About 1883 he was at Singapore, and, wishing to know what the North Borneo Co. was doing, he came in a Singapore ship to the west coast. On that occasion I joined the ship at Lahuan, on its way north, and spent three days with Lingard... I am yours sincerely [-----?] Jackson.

        Cabinet Photograph of Rosario Fiducia, a Sicilian Immigrant Lynched in Louisiana

      New Orleans: Robira Portraits. [circa 1895]. Cabinet photograph. Measuring 4.25" x 6.5". Slightly trimmed on one margin, faint ruled lines and some evidence of China white ink, apparently used to prepare a wood engraving or photographic reproduction for a newspaper account, notes in lower margin: "Rosario Fiducia generally known as 'Si Defichi' one of the lynched men, a cousin of the Defattas"; notes on rear, including "Si Defichi - one of the conspirators"; overall a very good, full length image. During the 1890s there were over 1500 lynchings in the South, mostly of blacks, but there were also six incidents of lynchings of Italian immigrants, three of those in Louisiana. As the result of one such incident in 1890, when a New Orleans mob murdered several Italians suspected in the death of a New Orleans Police Superintendent, the Italian government broke off relations with the U.S. and contemplated war. Apparently this is the only known image of Fiducia, a native of Cefalu, Sicily, one of the victims in the last fatal 19th Century anti-immigrant riot in Louisiana, when he was lynched in Madison Parish in 1899, along with the only other four Italian men living in that unincorporated village, all of whom were fruit or vegetable sellers. Fiducia had a small stall near the railroad tracks. According to contemporary newspaper reports, they were "a bad gang" and "they all had bad reputations of being bad and violent men... ." Apparently the lynching was precipitated when one of the Sicilians' goats interrupted the sleep of the local doctor, who shot the goat, precipitating a blood feud. Accompanied by a printout of a long article about the incident. A very interesting artifact of anti-Italian immigration violence in Louisiana. .

        Late-19th and Early-20th Century Theatre Records and Scrap Books, Kept by a Young Woman in Brooklyn, New York

      New York, November 1895 - February 1907. Hardcover. Very Good. Four volumes, containing the compiler's handwritten notes, as well as tipped-on theatre ephemera (programmes, portraits of the actors). VOLUME 1: Mottled black cloth over boards; 287x216mm; 30 blank cardstock leaves, full, recto and verso, with tipped-on programmes, alongside Luther's handwritten notes (usually the name of the theatre, the date, and who accompanied her). Boards detached, and numerous leaves loose; leaves brittle, and lightly chipped and torn along the edges. /// The remaining volumes are uniform in format (tho not binding material); boards, "Theatre Record" stamped in gilt on upper board; 229x180mm; 81 leaves, numbered on the recto only, with printed headings (programme, picture) and fields (play, theatre, date, accompanied by, seats, impressions of the play, criticism of the performance, criticism of individual actors), filled in by the compiler in a tidy, cursive hand, with tipped-on programmes and portraits of the actors. Nearly every heading has a piece of ephemera; nearly every field has an entry. /// (Condition, briefly.) VOLUME 2: Red morocco. Scuffed along joints and edges. VOLUME 3: Brown morocco. Backstrip perished; boards scuffed along the edges. VOLUME 4: Red cloth. Joints frayed; binding shaken and a few leaves loose. Clearly the work of a devoted fan of the theatre, a treasure trove of hundreds of programmes and images, enhanced by the observations of the compiler, Phoebe Andrews Luther of Carroll Street, in Brooklyn. Luther visits theatres all over the New York City area, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Montauk Theatre, Garrick Teahtre (Manhattan), Daly's Theatre (Manhattan), Empire Theatre, Knickerbocker, Lyceum, Broadway Theatre (41 St., Manhattan), Belasco Theatre, Metropolitan Opera House, and others. She sees and (observes) Wagner's "Lohengrin" (Mme. Nordica, Mme. Schumann-Heink and Mr. Bispham left nothing to be desired either as to their singing or as to their acting. Mr. Dippel has a beautiful voice but is nothing of an actor, though he looked Lohengrin to perfection); Shakespeare's "Midsummer Night's Dream" (Helen Burns as Bottom was irresistibly funny); "If I Were King" (One of the best plays I've seen); "Rip Van Winkle" (Joseph Jefferson was as fine as ever, though he does look very old now); and many, many others. Actors include John Drew, Ethel Barrymore, Maude Adams, Viola Allen, Richard Edeson, William Faversham, Francis Hodgson Burnett, Lawrance d'Orsay, Eleanor Robson, amongst others.

        Les Maîtres de l'Affiche, 1895-1900.

      KLEURRIJK BEELD VAN DE BELLE ÉPOQUEAffiches uit de Belle Époque op klein formaat. Uit Les Maîtres de l'Affiche: publication mensuelle contenant la reproduction des plus belles affiches illustrées des grands artistes, français et étrangers. Lithografieën in kleur vervaardigd tussen 1895-1900.Rond het jaar 1890 waren gelithografeerde affiches op groot formaat een opkomend fenomeen en hét nieuwe medium om ophanden zijnde voorstellingen in het theater, het circus, dansvoorstellingen en het variété onder de aandacht van het publiek te brengen. Ze werden door schilders en kunstenaars, die zich tot dan ook lieten verleiden tot zeer uiteenlopende ontwerpen, met veel enthousiasme als een nieuwe kunstuiting omarmd. Deze affiches vormen ook vandaag de dag nog ons beeld van de Belle Époque.De bakermat voor deze nieuwe rage lag zonder twijfel in Parijs, waar Jules Chéret zich als de ware meester van deze nieuwe kunst ontpopte, zowel zijn ontwerpen als de gebruikte techniek waren génial.Op de wereldtentoonstelling van 1889 werd Jules Chéret geëerd met een eigen tentoonstelling waarbij hij voor zijn oeuvre tot dan toe een gouden medaille ontving. Deze tentoonstelling was voor het grote publiek tevens een eerste kennismaking met het fenomeen affiche. Hierna volgde een succes dat zijn weerga niet kende. Op speciaal daarvoor opgerichte zuilen en andere oppervlakten die zich er voor leenden, werden de vaak immens grote affiches geplakt. Deze nieuwe straatkunst bracht ook een enorme verzamelwoede op gang. De populariteit van deze 'fresco"s van het trottoir", zoals het affiche bewonderend werd genoemd, gold echter niet alleen voor de aankondigingen van de diverse culturele manifestaties. Het medium werd ook gezien als een interessante vorm van betaalbare kunst voor het grote publiek en gaf bovendien de kunsthandel een nieuwe impuls.Inspelend op dit grote succes, ontstond in 1895 op initiatief van Jules Chéret in samenwerking met Impremerie Chaix de serie publicaties van 'Les Maîtres de l"Affiche". Men kon zich abonneren op deze serie, op klein formaat los in mappen uitgegeven affiches, driemaandelijks van december 1895 tot november 1900 uitkwam. In een oplage van vier stuks per maand zijn er in de vijf jaar van het bestaan 240 affiches uitgegeven. Bovendien werden speciaal voor abonnees van Les Maîtres door verschillende kunstenaars speciale affiches ontworpen zonder aankondiging of reclameopdruk.Het papier waarop ze gedrukt werden was van zeer hoge kwaliteit. Dit in tegenstelling tot de reguliere grote affiches, die op een mindere kwaliteit papier werden gedrukt, maar dan ook een ander doel dienden. De mooie heldere afbeeldingen van Les Maîtres de l"Affiche geven een interessant beeld van wat er zich op het gebied van het culturele leven, gezien door de ogen van diverse bekende kunstenaars, aan het einde van de 19de-eeuw afspeelde.Prijs: € 575,- (per stuk incl. lijst) .

        Le chemin de Paradis

      - Paris, Calmann-Lévy, 1895 (imprimé en 1894) In-12, XXXII-327pp. Très rare édition originale du premier livre de Maurras, qui avait déjà publié deux brochures. Ce premier livre avait en tête un poème d¿Anatole France dédié à Charles Maurras, les deux écrivains s¿étant liés d¿amitié depuis une dizaine d¿années. Cette édition originale, en plus d¿être rarissime, est la seule à contenir certains passages qui ont été enlevés dans la seconde édition, publiée de 1922. Maurras ayant évolué depuis la parution de cet ouvrage, il en a enlevé les passages qui n¿allaient plus avec la pensée qu¿il avait développée. Très bel état, 2 petites déchirures à la couverture (un petit manque), quelques rousseurs. Très bon texte littéraire et non politique. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Prince Zaleski

      London John Lane 1895. 8vo. 163pp. + 24 pages of ads in two booklets, because John Lane wouldn't want you to run out of books. Bound in publisher's vivid purple cloth, titled and decorated in white and gilt to spine and boards, decorations courtesy of Aubrey "So pale and interesting I make Keats look like an Australian rugby player" Beardsley. Faded to spine and with some sunning to extremities, which is what you get when your fin-de-siecle sensibilities are so keenly developed they drive you to bind books in delicate purple cloth; I am reasonably certain that the publisher in question could have turned his head slightly to the left, taken in the appearance of his first edition of The Moonstone, nestled next to Darwin's Cutivation of Orchids and thought "Hmm, maybe we'll go with a nice navy blue, perhaps mauve is not the way!" Unfortunately it was not to be, which is why title number VII in the beautiful and aesthetically pleasing Keynotes Series is usually found looking like it has recently been on a journey to the heart of the sun. This copy is better than most, strong tight and handsome despite the fading, a very good copy. Internally clean, light offsetting to the flyleaf and a couple of pencil notes to the effect that this is Queen's Quorum 19...and the word "bedroom" which considering both Shiel, Beardsley and indeed their target audiences could be anything from an imperative, to a reminder where they left the opium.#A much sought after collection of tales featuring the exorbitantly jaded Count, lurking in his mansion occasionally dragging himself away from the hashish for long enough to solve a mystery or two from the comfort of his ottoman. Awesome.###

        The Black Riders and Other Lines

      Boston: Copeland and Day,, 1895. 12mo. Publisher's binding (signed by Dudley & Hodge) of grey paper over boards, black titles, and an art-nouveau orchid design to both sides. With the original unprinted dust wrapper. Covers faintly spotted, front joint splitting from the bottom, small split to spine from the head, mild foxing to edges and some leaves; a very good copy in the creased jacket with small splits at the corners and some loss to tail. First edition, first printing; one of 500 copies of this first book of poems by writer Stephen Crane (1871-1900), who is more generally noted for novels such as his acclaimed Civil War tale The Red Badge of Courage, published in the same year as this collection. Crane was a prolific writer of poetry, though only in private at first, writing five or six poems a day. In 1894 he showed some of these to American writer Hamlin Garland (to whom his book is dedicated), who read them "with growing wonder". With Garland's encouragement, Crane secured publication from Copeland & Day, though not without a struggle which delayed publication until around the same time as The Red Badge of Courage, Crane's verses being highly unconventional for the time in their lack of any consistent rhyme or metre. In this, and in their spiritual scope, the verses share something with Blake, and also, in sentiment, something with Beaudelaire, being bred from a sort of vicious piety. Perhaps the best in the collection is: "In the desert / I saw a creature, naked, bestial, / who, squatting upon the ground, / held his heart in his hands, and ate of it. / I said, "Is it good, friend?" / "It is bitter- bitter," he answered; / "But I like it / because it is bitter, / and because it is my heart." There is some bibliographical debate as to whether The Black Riders was published just before or just after The Red Badge of Courage; Stallman cites broken type and an April 1896 advertisement in The Bookman to support his claim that this issue appeared on the heels of The Red Badge of Courage, Joe Kraus, in his bibliography of Copeland and Day, locates page proofs dated March, 1895, putting it before. If the latter is so, then as well as being Crane's first poetry collection, it is also his second published book and the first book published under his own name, following his pseudonymously published first book, Maggie.

Hiestand "was well known for his photography of the Pikes Peak area, [and] was the official photographer for the Manitou and Pikes Peak Railway" (The Mineralogical Record online).

        Four volumes from the personal library of Clinton Dent, comprising two bound volumes of pamphlets, an album containing two posters for lectures by Dent, newspaper cuttings, programmes, and a copy of Martin Conway’s The Alps from End to End (first edition).

      - Pamphlets: Two volumes numbered VI and VIII to the spines, containing 12 offprints, 13 booklets and 6 extracts (thirty-one items in all), several with plates or maps, occasional browning, generally in good order, bound for the most part with the original wrappers in contemporary buckram with contrasting lettering pieces, bookplate of Dent at front of each volume. Album: 140pp., comprising numerous newspaper cuttings, 2 posters for lectures by Dent on mountaineering, and 6 programmes for theatrical or musical evenings, bound in contemporary half morocco, rubbed, Dent’s bookplate at front. Conway, William Martin. The Alps from End to End. Westminster: Archibald Constable, 1895. First edition. 8vo. pp. xii, 403; frontis. and numerous plates after originals by A. D. M’Cormick; minor age-toning, else good in the original buckram-backed cloth, gilt, t.e.g, minor wear to head of spine and to rear board, Dent’s bookplate at front. Clinton Thomas Dent (1850-1912) made important ascents in the Alps and the Caucasus during the period known as the silver age of Alpinism. He made the first ascent of the Aiguille du Dru in 1878, and eight years later climbed Gestola in the Caucasus with W. F. Donkin. He was president of the Alpine Club from 1886 to 1889, and often lectured on mountaineering and related themes. He also followed a career in medicine, and became the Senior Surgeon at St. George’s Hospital, and Chief Surgeon to the Metropolitan Police. The present four volumes from Dent’s library contain materials relating to his many interests. The bound volumes of pamphlets include offprints and booklets presented to Dent by prominent mountaineers of the day: Vittorio Sella, Douglas Freshfield, Arthur Harper (inscribed by Harper). Also present are two catalogues of mountain paintings for exhibitions at London galleries, one with a preface by Dent and Freshfield, and a history of the Caucasus Museum printed in German in Tiflis with a covering letter from the author to Dent. Other content relates to Dent’s career as surgeon, including addresses given at St. George’s Hospital , or papers such as Robert Bowles’s Sunburn on the Alps (1890). The extracts mostly offer reviews or articles by Dent himself, including his essay ‘Can Mount Everest be Ascended?’, and a book review of Conway’s The Alps from End to End. The accompanying album, presumably compiled by Dent himself, contains numerous newspaper cuttings on miscellaneous subjects, including mountaineering, the Boat race, a letter from Charles L. Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), the British Association, politics, medicine, the British North Borneo Company (with a copy of their bookplate pasted in; a relative, Alfred Dent, was a director), obituaries of e.g. Darwin, and much else; several of the items were written by Dent. The programmes contain details of theatrical and musical performances that include members of the Dent family, and the two posters advertise Dent’s lectures, one from 1872.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1895 - 1895 Wisden Rebound Like Hardbacks , Special.

      1895. Hi and Welcome to our Store. We have sold many rare Wisdens through WisdenAuction so we are listing a few more spare early hardbacks and a full run of 1897-1948 in hardback, please enjoy them. -------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a very special 1895 Wisden, rebound by Wisden in the middle of the 20th Century to mimic an 1896 hardback, a quirky Wisden that will appeal to some. The similarities to a hardback are that the paste downs are yellow (with a Liverpool cricket club stamp) , the gilt on the covers and spine are identical to that of an 1896. It is slightly smaller by 1/8th inch , smoky top to page block and severe foxing around photo plate, the uniqueness is what will appeal. Hard to price up but Gorringes sold a similar copy (spine less like an 1896) for £750+20% and selling for less than we purchased it for.

        THE WESSEX NOVELS (all 18 volumes) + WESSEX POEMS

      1895. London: (first 17 volumes) Osgood, McIlvaine & Co.; (18th volume) Macmillan and Co., 1895-1913. Plus: WESSEX POEMS and Other Verses. With Thirty Illustrations by the Author. London: Harper & Brothers, 1898. [Together, 19 volumes.] Original dark blue-green cloth with front cover monogram device in gilt. First Uniform and Complete Edition of Hardy's prose -- including three first editions (four including WESSEX POEMS). Osgood McIlvaine produced the original sixteen volumes, containing all of Hardy's fiction written until then, individually during the years 1895-1896; his last novel, JUDE THE OBSCURE, first came out during those two years, so that first edition was published as Vol. VIII of these volumes. (Due to the outcry over the daring subject matter in Hardy's last novels, he would write no more fiction; for the 32 years of his life remaining after JUDE, he would write only verse.) Subsequent to the first 16 volumes, two collections of previously-unpublished fiction, THE WELL-BELOVED (1897) and A CHANGED MAN (1913) came out -- the latter by Macmillan -- so these two were first published as the final volumes in this series, Vols XVII and XVIII.~Even the volumes that are not first editions are very important:~Osgood, McIlvaine's edition is an important one. The text of every novel was thoroughly and carefully revised, the topography (names and distances) corrected where necessary, chapters frequently retitled, and much rewriting done. In addition Hardy prepared a special preface for each volume (prefaces which have a peculiar interest when read consecutively as the work of 1895-96)... [Purdy]~Thus the Wessex Novels consitutes the definitive edition of Hardy's fiction -- the version of each novel as he ultimately wished it to endure. (All but JUDE had originally appeared as two- or three-volume novels, when the format and even the content were dictated by the lending libraries that would buy up most of the copies of authors' first editions.)~Each volume also includes a frontispiece by H. Macbeth-Raeburn, as well as the ubiquitous Map of Wessex.~Also included with this set is a copy of the first edition of Hardy's first volume of verse, WESSEX POEMS; though published by Harper in 1898, it was put up in the same binding as the recently-published Wessex Novels. It is noteworthy not only because it is the first volume of the genre that would dominate his final decades -- verse -- but also because it includes 30 of Hardy's own illustrations, which clearly demonstrate his long-earlier training in architectural drafting.~Note: the volume WESSEX TALES bears on the front paste-down a "From the Author" leaf, which is signed (and dated 27 March 1897) by Hardy's Dorset friend Thomas Perkins, who had been headmaster of the Shaftesbury Grammar School and in the 1890s was rector of the North Dorset village of Turnworth (Turnworth House was "Hintock House" in Hardy's THE WOODLANDERS, and during these years Hardy would ride on his Rover Cob bicycle to that grand hall to give talks); an avid amateur photographer, Perkins was very interested in Dorset history, especially its architecture, and at the time of his death in 1907 he was writing MEMORIALS OF OLD DORSET.~As for condition, this is a remarkable set. A couple of volumes have subtle repair at the spine ends, and one volume lacks its front free endpaper, but all of the other volumes (including all four first editions) are just about FINE. It is worth pointing out that in this desirable condition, the value of just two of the first editions, JUDE THE OBSCURE and WESSEX POEMS, amounts to about half the value of all 19 volumes' price. Purdy pp 279-282.

      -, 0, Wien, - Wien, -, o. J. Mit eighd. Signaturen und Prägestempel (4). - Das Szenenfoto hat zudem einen St. a. R. - Trude Fleischmann, (1895 - 1990), stammte aus einem bürgerlichen, assimilierten jüdischen Elternhaus. Nach der Matura studierte sie kurzzeitig Kunst in Paris. Von 1913 bis 1916 absolvierte sie eine Ausbildung in der Graphischen Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt in Wien. Nach einem kurzen Praktikum bei 'Madame d'Ora machte sie ihre Berufsausbildung im Atelier von Hermann Schieberth (1876-1948). Anfang 1920 eröffnete sie ein eigenes Atelier in der Nähe des Wiener Rathauses. Schnell wurde Fleischmann zu einer der gefragtesten Porträtfotografinnen Wiens. In ihrem Atelier machte sie Aufnahmen von zahlreichen bekannten Persönlichkeiten aus Gesellschaft, Kunst und Kultur darunter Peter Altenberg, Gustinus Ambrosi, Alban Berg, Wilhelm Furtwängler, Karl Kraus, Hedy Lamarr, Adolf Loos, Tilly Losch, Alfred Polgar, Max Reinhardt, Schauspieldynastie Thimig, Hilde Wagener, Bruno Walter, Paula Wessely, Grete Wiesenthal und Stefan Zweig. Es entstanden auch Tanz- und Aktaufnahmen. Berühmt wurde Fleischmann mit ihren als skandalös empfundenen Aktfotografien der Tänzerin Claire Bauroff. Ihre Fotografien wurden auch in allen gängigen Magazinen gedruckt, darunter Berliner Illustrirte Zeitung, Die Bühne, Die Dame, Moderne Welt, Wiener Bilder, Wiener Magazin und Wiener Mode. Ab Mitte der 1930er Jahre wandte sie sich auch der Landschafts- und Heimatfotografie zu. Nach dem „Anschluss" Österreichs an das Deutsche Reich gelang Fleischmann mit Hilfe der US-amerikanischen Fotografin Marion Post Wolcott, mit deren Schwester sie in Wien studiert hatte, im September 1938 die Flucht; zunächst nach Paris, dann nach London und schließlich nach New York. 1940 eröffnete sie ein Fotostudio in Manhattan. Auch in ihrer neuen Heimat - 1942 erhielt sie die US-amerikanische Staatsbürgerschaft - fotografierte sie bekannte Künstler und Intellektuelle darunter Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, Albert Einstein, Otto von Habsburg, Oskar Kokoschka, Lotte Lehmann und Arturo Toscanini. 1969 zog sich Fleischmann aus dem Berufsleben zurück und übersiedelte nach Lugano. 1988 kehrte sie in die USA zurück, wo sie zwei Jahre später starb.
