        Der arme Teufel [The Poor Devil]

      Detroit: Robert Reitzel, 1895-1897. Late group of issues of this prominent German-American radical literary journal. Der arme Teufel was published weekly for 14 years by Robert Reitzel, a German-born American anarchist, poet, critic and translator. The first two volumes of the journal were mainly concerned with the freethought movement, primarily consisting of articles on religious criticism; in its later years, Reitzel declared Der arme Teufel to be an anarchist publication. Reitzel was a staunch supporter of the imprisoned Haymarket anarchists, and later, of Alexander Berkman during his confinement. Indeed, Reitzel's journal was reportedly the only radical serial Berkman was allowed to receive while he was in prison. "Emma Goldman noted Reitzel's importance for facilitating American exposure to European radical thought," describing him as a "brilliant writer" and his Arme Teufel as "the one German paper in the States that kept its readers in contact with the new literary spirit in Europe" (Donaldson, Randall P. The Literary Legacy of a "Poor Devil": The Life and Work of Robert Reitzel (1849-1898) (New York: Lang, 2002), p.50-51). Rare; we find no copies for sale in the trade (August 2015); OCLC finds a single location (U.Cincinnati). 22 tabloid issues (ca.36cm); printed newsprinted wrappers; 8pp per issue. Publication sequence runs as follows: Vol.XI, Nos.565-567; Vol.XII, Nos.595, 597, 599-603; Vol.XIII, Nos.631-640, 642-643. Edgeworn, with occasional creasing and short tears; quite tender at folds, with splits starting; mailing label of previous owner to front wrappers of nearly all issues (Felick Jelineck); Good overall. Also included are three issues in poor condition (nos.566-567), badly browned, edges brittle, and split along center folds, but nonetheless complete.

        Chocolat Carpentier.

      Poster for Carpentier Chocolat. Paris: Courmont 1895. Published in "Les Maitres de l'Affiche", 1897. Plate no. 83.. 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

        The Red Badge of Courage.

      D. Appleton and Company, New York 1895 - First edition, first printing with page [235] advertising the three works of Gilbert Parker's Best Books, and the last page of advertisements (page 238) ending with The Land of the Sun, by Christian Reid; last gathering, including ads on laid paper. Octavo, original publisher's tan cloth. In near fine condition with a touch of rubbing. From the library of noted collector Donald G. Drapkin, with his bookplate, contemporary name on the endpaper. Housed in a custom half morocco box. An exceptional example. An abbreviated version of The Red Badge of Courage was first serialized in The Philadelphia Press in December 1894. This version of the story, which was culled to 18,000 words by an editor specifically for the serialization, was reprinted in newspapers across America, establishing Crane's fame. Crane biographer John Berryman wrote that the story was published in at least 200 small city dailies and approximately 550 weekly papers. In October 1895, a version, which was 5,000 words shorter than the original manuscript, was printed in book form by D. Appleton & Company. "Stephen Crane, with no more military experience than his lively imagination could cull from Battles and Leaders of the Civil War and from Tolstoy, told so graphically how a raw recruit feels in battle that The Red Badge of Courage must be regarded as the first artistic approach to the war. It pictures no historical figure or event, except that Chancellorsville is its setting, but its sense of the helplessness and meaninglessness of the common soldier, maneuvered by superiors and circumstance, is a brilliant achievement in impression. Its illusion of authentic experience has made it a minor classic of the war" (Leisy, 158-59). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Architectural History of Harrow Church Derived from a Study of the Building

      Harrow, England: Wilbee, J. C. , 1895. Contemporary full morocco binding of a dark brown color, and with hubbed spine in six panels. Boards with gilt rules and small gilt decorative motifs, and with small diaper design in blind to the fields. Spine states, in fairly crisp, gilt-stamped letters, "Harrow Church, Gardner." Spine with elaborate and crisp gilt-stamped design. Generally unbumped spine head and tail and with slightly bumped lower corners, The leather binding is exceptionally clean and almost entirely free of scratches, and with minor rubbing along the gutters. The spine is lightly and evenly sunned to a medium brown color. The text block is firmly bound in. 9.25 x 6 inches. With handsome marbled paper pastedowns and FEPs. T.E.G. With xii and 95 numbered pages, including an introduction, the main text, a glossary of technical terms employed, and a postscript. With XL full-page B&W plates plus Plate XLI, a pristine pull-out architectural ground plan of the church, The Church of S. Mary Harrow on the Hill. Also with 15 additional B&W illustrations. We can find no foxing or other blemishes, save for an instance of off-setting. The book is astonishingly clean overall. Front pastedown with the stunning late 19th century armorial bookplate of Harrow School, including the motto "stet fortvna domvs." Near the top of the bookplate is written in a neat ink hand, "E. W. Swan, Term prize for Drawing, 1900' given May 31st, 1900." Hence a presentation copy. Off-setting between p. 72 and the opposite plate, likely due to insertion of a newspaper clipping or similar. Neatly pasted on to a blank rear FEP is a newspaper clipping, "Harrow Church 850 Years Old." Above the clipping in a neat ink hand is, "Times, Jan. 17th 1944." Neatly pasted on to the opposite blank rear FEP is a B&W photo of Harrow Church, doubtless from the same newspaper article. Finally, neatly pasted on to the rear pastedown is a very small -- and somewhat bizarre -- news magazine clipping, "A Railway Victim." The clipping pertains to an interesting gravestone in Harrow-on-the-Hill churchyard regarding a hapless man who was run over and killed by a railway train in 1833, shortly after rail was introduced to Harrow and vicinity. Else a very clean copy. A Very Good copy. Scarce in any condition. An altogether engaging and handsome volume and a pleasure to hold in hand.. First Edition. Full-Leather. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

        The National Shakespeare, Comedies, Tragedies, Histories, in Three Volumes Being a Facsimile of the Text of the First Folio of 1623

      London: William Mackenzie In the preface to this magnificent undated production (circa 1895) the publisher states that the scarcity of the original "First Folio" and the enormous price it has consequently attained in our times, exclude it from the shelves of most private libraries. That the text is scrupulously accurate to the original, including all those peculiarities of paging, spelling, and punctuation, printed in a special antique type, such as was employed in the "First Folio" upon hand made paper, with rough edges, specially manufactured to maintain the antique character of the edition. However they couldn't resist the temptation to add twenty specially executed illustrations by Sir Joseph Noel Paton (1821-1901) artist and folklore expert who painted in the Pre-Raphaelite style but declined to become a member of the brotherhood. Each volume was originally published at the price of three pounds, ten shillings. Supplied with documents for the last time they were sold in the trade in October 1934. Overseas shipping by quotation.. Morocco Textured Cloth. Very Good Plus. Illus. by Sir Joseph Noel Paton RSA. 415x270mm.

        The Works of E.A. Poe (including Tales of Mystery and Imagination).

      London: Published by J. Shiells and Co., 1895., 1895. 8 volumes; complete. A beautiful edition, illustrated with 24 fine photogravures, presented in a very decorative contemporary half dark red calf with two maroon title labels, gilt raised bands and gilt to spines, marbled boards and end papers; top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Includes the original printed notice about the care of leatherbound volumes. Light rubbing to the spine of a couple of volumes, first book with a couple of scuffs; minor foxing to page edges. Overall a most attractive set in a vintage leather binding. A seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Conan Doyle, Verne, and Baudelaire. This collection of Poe's best stories contains all the terrifying and bewildering tales that characterize his work, as well as the Gothic horror of 'The Pit and the Pendulum' with other similarly wierd tales, together with all three of the landmark cases featuring his ground-breaking detective Auguste Dupin; the history of the detective story begins with the publication of 'The Murders In the Rue Morgue' (Matthews). He was a writer of genius who was interested in crime, especially violent death, in cryptograms, and the whole process of logical deduction (Quayle). Poe's mystery of 'The Purloined Letter' is a prototype of spy stories like those of James Bond. (Haining) Queen's Quorum (their first Cornerstone title), Eric Quayle; Detective Fiction. Peter Haining; Crime Fiction. Listed in 100 Books That Shaped World History [Raftery, 2002].

        Bible in English, for the Blind, Printed in the New York Point Alphabet [Braille]

      American Bible Society, New York 1895 - First edition of this Bible, volume I only; folio (14" x 13"), 164 leaves, embossed in the New York Point Alphabet for the Blind, which is a system of tactile raised dots, similar to Braille. Contemporary 3/4 calf over tan cloth covered boards, spine ruled in gilt; spine label is absent. New York Point for the Blind was invented by William Bell Wait (1839-1916), educator for the Blind, as an alternative to the "Line Letter" system, consisting of raised letters of the standard alphabet, which was in use in the late 19th Century and lasted for several decades. But Braille had been invented by Louis Braille in 1824, but fell into disuse, only to be revived in the early 20th Century and Braille remains today, the standard in reading and writing for the Blind, throughout the world. Internally, quite clean, with the embossed dots in very good condition; small loss at head of spine and corners worn through; a very good copy, now quite scarce on the market.

        The Red Badge of Courage.

      New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1895. First edition, first printing with page [235] advertising the three works of Gilbert Parker's Best Books, and the last page of advertisements (page 238) ending with The Land of the Sun, by Christian Reid; last gathering, including ads on laid paper. Octavo, original publisher's tan cloth. In near fine condition with a touch of rubbing. From the library of noted collector Donald G. Drapkin, with his bookplate, contemporary name on the endpaper. Housed in a custom half morocco box. An exceptional example. An abbreviated version of The Red Badge of Courage was first serialized in The Philadelphia Press in December 1894. This version of the story, which was culled to 18,000 words by an editor specifically for the serialization, was reprinted in newspapers across America, establishing Crane's fame. Crane biographer John Berryman wrote that the story was published in at least 200 small city dailies and approximately 550 weekly papers. In October 1895, a version, which was 5,000 words shorter than the original manuscript, was printed in book form by D. Appleton & Company. "Stephen Crane, with no more military experience than his lively imagination could cull from Battles and Leaders of the Civil War and from Tolstoy, told so graphically how a raw recruit feels in battle that The Red Badge of Courage must be regarded as the first artistic approach to the war. It pictures no historical figure or event, except that Chancellorsville is its setting, but its sense of the helplessness and meaninglessness of the common soldier, maneuvered by superiors and circumstance, is a brilliant achievement in impression... Its illusion of authentic experience has made it a minor classic of the war" (Leisy, 158-59).

        Joseph Lister writes to a fellow bacteriologist concerning the post-natal infection, "puerperal septicemia"

      [London], October 11, 1895. 4" x 6". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""Joseph Lister,"" 2 pages, 4"" x 6"" on mourning stationery, [London], October 11, 1895 to bacteriologist Dr. [William] Bulloch, concerning a report from his correspondent. With the original transmittal envelope addressed in his hand. Light soling, expected folds, else near fine condition.Lister writes in full: ""I am much obliged to you for your report of the puerperal septicemia. What a tremendously virulent affair the poison must have been to produce sloughing of the entire mucous membrane of uterus & vagina. It does seem a great pity that the serum was not used a day earlier. ""His correspondent, Dr. William Bulloch (1868-1941), a bacteriologist, pathologist and medical historian, became chairman of the governors of the Lister Institute in 1832. The year of this letter, Bulloch had just been appointed a bacteriologist at the Institute. Bulloch was a great admirer of Lister and carefully retained his correspondence with the scientist. Many of those letters were presented to the Lister Institute after his death.Provenance: Maggs Brothers; The Estate of Charles E. Sigety, Christie's New York."
