        Autograph Manuscript, signed, fair copy, of the lyrics to "Ben Bolt", with an Autograph Note of explanation

      N.p., 1895. 5 stanzas of verse with 7-line note. 2 pp., on two sheets of blank stantionery. 8vo. Fine. 5 stanzas of verse with 7-line note. 2 pp., on two sheets of blank stantionery. 8vo. Author of "Ben Bolt", New Jersey Congressman, and Enemy of Poe. Thomas Dunn English (1819-1902) was a proilific author of poems, ballads, and novels; he also server two terms in the U.S. Congress as a Representative from New Jersey; but his fame as a writer rests on the ballad in wrote in 1843, "Ben Bolt." First published in Nathaniel Parker Willis' magazine, NEW YORK MIRROR, "Ben Bolt" was set to music many times and became very popular, especiallly in the version set to a tune by Nelson Kneass. In his note appended to this transcription of the poem, English writes: "The foregoing stanzas are as they originally appeared in Willis & Morris's NEW YORK NEW MIRROR, in the year 1843. Though they have been set to music eight tiimes, the only popular melody was the one take from a German air, by Kneass. The words there - three stanzas only being taken - are very much mutilated." "It was hugely successful at the time, but had a new lease of life as the song that Trilby O'Ferrall sings in the novel TRILBY (1894) by George du Maurier. It is described in the novel as an 'unsophisticated little song,' but when Trilby performs it under the influence of the sinister hypnotist Svengali it reawakens a 'cosmic vision of the beauty and sadness of things' in her former lover Little Billee." (Derek B. Scott, THE SINGING BOURGEOIS: SONGS OF THE VICTORIAN DRAWING ROOM AND PARLOUR. Aldershot, Hampshire; Burlington, VT: Ashgate, 2001). Ironically, "Ben Bolt" being a tribute to a long-lasting friendship, English is also remembered as the bitter foe of his former friend, Edgar Allan Poe. The two had a falling out which resulted in a fist fight, as well as a long running literary feud.

        Original Photographs]: Two Portraits of a Young Woman

      Richmond, Virginia 1895 - Two very rare portrait photographs taken by James Conway Farley, now recognized as America's first prominent African-American photographer, taken at his studio in Richmond, Virginia. Both are cabinet cards in fine condition (measuring 3.25" x 5"), with blind stamped borders and the studio name printed in maroon: "Jefferson Art Gallery, 523 Broad Street, Richmond, Va." Each portrait is of the same unidentified young woman wearing a different fashionable dress and hat. She appears to be in her twenties, and possibly of mixed race. Both photographs were likely taken not long after Farley opened his studio, "The Jefferson" in 1895. A historically important, scarce survival.

        Oneota Expedition

      America 1895 - Mottled black cloth, "Photographs" gilt-stamped in script on front board; oblong 4to (12 x 10.5 inches); unpaginated, contains 22 heavy cardstock light grey leaves, each with 4 b/w photographs (albumens) mounted to recto and verso ,and labelled by hand -- nearly 100 photographs in all. Boards a bit scuffed; lightly frayed at extremities; leaves bound with rope at spine ends, with rope missing from head of spine. A few photographs a little faded or over-exposed, but all are legible, and some are lovely. A collection of photographs of geological and ornithological interest, taken in the summer of 1895, possibly as a school project, as it also includes a few images of typical college silliness. The overall tone of the colletion is serious and studied, with every location named and dated -- includes Decorah, the Iowa River, the dams at Terill's Mill and Coralville, Dubuque, a steamboat on the Mississippi, and more, recording bridges, banks, buildings, quarries, and streets. The animals encountered along the way also get their due, a flying squirrel, a series of snakes, and a pretty photograph of a dead red-tailed hawk. A baseball game between S. U. I. and Luther College is taken from a distance, which is typical of the interests of our compiler, who is more careful to note "cross lamination in carboniferous sandstone at Wyoming hill" than he is to record the names of his friends, though some of the fun of college does manage to find its way in. A few buddies are named as they drag their boat through the Oneota river (Bartsch, Joe Allen, Fitz), and there are some candid photographs of students "at Overholt's," attending an athletic field day, collecting golf ball sized hail stones after a storm and -- the college classic -- a roommate, cleaning his feet, in an impossibly messy room.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Paris, 19 and 20 Nov. 1895.. 4to (203 x 130 mm). 4 pp.. In French. On November 19, Zola writes to his wife: "I see that your day on Saturday was well spent: a visit at the curiosities merchants, lunch with the Luzzattos, a visit in the Coliseum, dinner at the Embassy. And how you pressed yourself to get double the benefit! You speak of leaving Rome Tuesday evening, that is, today. You will thus not have received the letter in which I advised you to stay until the Consistory. You have to return in the end, if you have had enough. Only, I am a bit embarrassed about my letters, as you didn t send me the dispatch I asked you to send three days before you leave Rome. I'll take the chance and continue to write you at the Grand Hotel, from where my letters will no doubt be forwarded to you. Today I did up my first small packages and sent the first two chapters of Rome to the translators. Caponi will have these two chapters in his hands this evening, with the authorization to begin in La Tribuna of December 23. I haven't seen Caponi again; the seven hundred francs are embarrassing to him. I have negotiated everywhere for Rome except with Spain and America. Spain will come, but I doubt very much that America will this time. That will make a hole. All the same, I am counting on the translations bringing in thirty to forty thousand francs, which is a reasonable figure. After my lunch, Jules having told me the masons had finished their work in the old pit, I went down to see. That will make a superb cellar, much bigger than our old wine cellar. It will be cooler than the one we re using now; and you could store wine there. But I think it ought rather to be made into a coal cellar. One could easily store thirty or forty thousand kilogrammes there if there were a real reason for buying coal en gros, in great quantity. You will see. I took the liberty of opening a letter addressed in your name and stamped with a stamp of Lagesse; and I was right, for it contained simply a receipt for two hundred francs that he no doubt owed you. Giacomelli has lost his wife. I am sending him your card and mine, with a word of sympathy. The day was quite cold and foggy. This is decidedly villainous weather. As soon as you are back, we will really move into our winter quarters. I forgot to say regarding the new cellar that the work on everything having to do with the other rooms is going to begin shortly. The architect of the house had a long meeting with the architect of no. 23, for it seems that there are very complicated questions about the wall in between. Happily, we didn t take it inside. But I will be content when our rooms upstairs are also finished. And that s all for today. Our journal is about to end, for your return is near. For me, your letters were a great pleasure every morning and I am happy to think that mine followed you everywhere, reminding you that the house was waiting for you and that you have an old and good friend there who loves you and in spite of everything dreams of your happiness as if it were his own. Monsieur Din just made me rage. He had stayed under... and I looked for him everywhere. I told him you were about to return, and I think he understood...". The following day, on the 20th, Zola writes: "This morning I received your letter in which you fixed your return for Monday. If thus you keep this date and if you don t stay in Rome until the Consistory, this letter is the last you will be able to receive in Rome, as it will arrive Friday morning and you should be leaving on Friday evening, according to the data you gave me. Thus, I am embarrassed as to an address for the letter I ll write you this evening and which will depart tomorrow. I m going to await your letter of tomorrow, and I ll make my decision if you have stuck to yours. In this case, this letter would be the last which I would send you to Rome, and I would address the one this evening to Turin, general delivery. By the way, I think Monday is an excellent date for your return".

        The Discovery of Australia. A Critical, Documentary and Historic Investigation Concerning the Priority of Discovery in Australasia by Europeans before the arrival of Lieut. James Cook, in the "Endeavour", in the year 1770

      Sydney: Hayes Brothers, 1895. Quarto, with numerous maps (some folding), plates and text illustrations, original cloth; some spotting of the top edge of the text block, yet an unusually attractive copy of a book typically found in average condition. The hermit of Berowra. One of the best known and eccentric accounts of early European discovery, using the Dieppe maps as proof of early Portuguese mapping of all but the south coast of Australia in the early sixteenth century.George Collingridge (1847-1931) was a remarkable amateur historian and artist who emigrated to Australia in 1879 following a turbulent life of travel and adventure, including service in the papal forces against Garibaldi. A skilled wood engraver who worked for the Illustrated Sydney News, he later settled in Hornsby to pursue his feverish interest in Australian maritime history.Through this exhaustively researched and still impressive work he sought to prove that Portuguese mariners had discovered and mapped Australia in the sixteenth-century long before the Dutch; it was published in 1895, the same year that he settled in Hornsby and built a sandstone cottage called, of course, "Jave-la-Grande". Despite the rejection of his thesis by several of his contemporaries, Collingridge's fluency in Spanish and Portuguese, and the astonishing array of materials he examined, means that The Discovery of Australia remains an important attempt to prove a radical theory and 'it is now increasingly recognized that the cartographical core of his argument deserves more serious consideration than it received from orthodox Australian historians' (ADB). He was made knight commander of the Portuguese Order of St. James of the Sword in 1908.

        TRILBY (In Original PUBLISHER'S PRINTED DUST JACKET)

      London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1895. Du Maurier, George. TRILBY. A Novel. London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1895. 141 illustrations by the author including frontispiece. FIRST ENGLISH ONE-VOLUME EDITION AND FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION preceded only by the 1894 non-illustrated three-volume first edition which is rarely seen today. A FINE copy (gilt blazing bright) in a VERY GOOD example of the extremely uncommon ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S PRINTED DUSTJACKET which is a little chipped along the bottom edge, and at two small points near the top. But there is no loss to any of the lettering or the design. Two very small pieces of archival tape can be found on the verso of the DJ. Du Maurier (1834-1896) was one of the most successful illustrators of the last half of the Victorian era, the much acclaimed illustrator for "Punch" and other popular publications. Toward the end of his life, at the urging of Henry James, he produced three novels, the most extraordinarily successful of which was TRILBY which begat hysterical Trilby-mania (the Trilby hat changed men's fashion, it became the name of a town in Florida) and introduced the character of SVENGALI, the evil mesmerist who hypnotizes the lovely Trilby into becoming a world renown diva through his dark hypnotic talents (thus serving as the inspiration for Gaston Leroux's PHANTOM OF THE OPERA). This is the novel for which Du Maurier will forever be remembered, a book which made hypnotism just as much a part of our modern culture as Svengali has become part of the English Language as the descriptor of anyone who manipulates another person in a sinister fashion through the force of mesmerizing persuasion. The survival of this dustjacket seems to us to be of equal rarity to the survival of Thomas Hardy's JUDE THE OBSCURE which was also published in a six-shilling single volume by Osgood, McIlvaine in November of this very same year. . First Edition. Fine/Very Good.

        Les Vierges

      1895. RIPPL-RONAI, Jozsef. Les Vierges. WITH: Les Tombeaux. Text by Georges Rodenbach. Two volumes. Illustrated with 4 original coloured lithographs by Jozsef Rippl-Ronai, plus 3 woodcuts by James Pitcairn-Knowles. 8vo., 253 x 175 mm, bound in original publisher's wrap-pers with woodcut illustrations by Pitcairn-Knowles, preserved in a new cloth folding box. Paris: Samuel Bing, 1895. First Edition, limited to 500 copies. One of the finest Nabis-influenced books. The Rippl-Ronai coloured lithographs echo the work being done by Nabis painter Maurice Denis, in his "Les Muses" painting in particular. Pitcairn-Knowles conceived the idea for an imaginary book and illustrated it with a series of woodcuts. He then induced his friend Jozsef Rippl-Ronai to create four coloured lithographs for a second unwritten book, Les Vierges. With these illustrations already finished, they approached gallery owner Samual Bing, who had excellent connec-tions in the publishing world. Bing commissioned the Belgian writer Georges Rodenbach, author of the symbolist novel Bruges la Morte, to write texts based on the Nabis-style illustrations of Pitcairn-Knowles and Rippl-Ronai. Jozsef Rippl-Ronai (1861-1927), Hungarian painter, lived in Paris between 1887 and 1902 and belonged to the Nabis group of artists which included Bonnard, Denis, Vuillard, and Maillol. James Pitcairn-Knowles (1863-1954) was a Scottish painter. Fine copies of these fragile works. Turn of the Century 64. From Manet to Hockney 12. Monod 9810.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Paris, 18. XI. 1895. - 4to (210 x 133 mm). 2 pp. In French, to an unidentified friend: "[.] It seems that my wife missed you when she passed through Aix. We should have written you; but this voyage wasn t decided on until right at the last moment; and my wife thought she would always find you. What does she write me? That you complain about me because I am not answering your letters? If that were so I would have to be excused, because I am truly a poor man, burdened down with work and whose head is getting impassive. But truly, I am an innocent criminal, for I don't recall having received a single letter from you that I didn't answer. Let's pass the.sponge, shall we? My wife, who is impassioned of Rome, had a crazy desire to return there. [As for] me, I stayed [here] at my work. My Rome is tough going for me; and besides that, nothing exists which can totally absorb me. It will start appearing in The Journal toward December 20th; but you won't have the volume [the work in book form] until the first days of May. I have my pardon, don't I? And I send you the most affectionate of presses of the hand". - Won over to social humanitarianism toward the latter part of his life, Zola wrote the cycle, "Les Trois Villes", which no longer reflected a naturalistic perspective. When Zola wrote this letter, he had already published "Lourdes", the first novel in the trilogy and was still working on its sequel, "Rome", which would later be followed by "Paris". He had, the year before, visited the Italian capital to research for the novel, and had returned to Paris with voluminous notes about what he saw and heard. Madame Zola, who had accompanied him on this excursion to Italy, took more pleasure in the trip than he did. She found it easier here than in France to bask in his reflected glory, and she could imagine that Roman society was ignorant of the double life he was leading, whereas she was sure that all her friends in Paris knew. After this first visit she returned regularly on her own for several years running; it was an arrangement that allowed the estranged couple a semi-separation acceptable according to the conventions of the time.

        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 rough trimmed. Light rubbing to the spine of a couple of volumes; little foxing to page edges. An attractive set in an old 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].

        Tänzerin mit erhobenem, nach rechts gespreiztem Bein und nach rechts gewandtem Kopf.

      - Bleistift und Aquarell, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts unten monogrammiert „JM". 17,7:12,8 cm. Verso: Figurenskizze. Bleistift. Mit Lichtrand rundum. Jeanne Mammen zählt sicher zu den schillerndsten Künstlerpersönlichkeiten unserer Zeit. Als Tochter eines wohlhabenden Kaufmannes wuchs sie frei von finanziellen Sorgen ab etwa 1895 in Paris auf. Wohl gefördert von ihrem Elternhaus begann sie dort das Studium der Malerei 1906 an der Académie Julien. Zur Weiterbildung ging sie 1908 nach Brüssel an die Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts und 1909 an die Scuola Libera Villa Medici in Rom. 1911 kehrte sie schließlich nach Paris zurück und veranstaltete schon im darauffolgenden Jahr eine erste Ausstellung ihrer Werke in ihrem Atelier. Darüber hinaus nahm sie an den Ausstellung der „Indépendants" in Paris teil. Bei Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges mußte sie mit der durch Beschlagnahmung aller Besitztümer durch die Franzosen mittellos gewordenen Familie das Land verlassen, kam erst nach Holland, 1916 nach Berlin. Hier suchte sie mit steigendem Erfolg durch Illustrationen, Modezeichnungen oder etwa Kinoplakate für die Ufa ihren Lebensunterhalt zu bestreiten. Schließlich wurde sie Mitarbeiterin der Zeitschrift „Simplicissimus" und anderer satirischer Blätter wie die „Lustigen Blätter", „Uhu" und „Ulk". Diese gesellschaftskritischen und satirischen Zeichnungen und Aquarelle, Milieustudien, Szenen aus Bars und von Kleinkunstbühnen, Bordellen und der Straße brachten ihr in der zweiten Hälfte der 20er Jahre wachsendes Ansehen und ein ausreichendes Einkommen. Schon zu Beginn ihres Schaffens ist die Fokussierung auf Frauendarstellungen festzustellen, ebenso wie die Beziehungen zwischen Mann und Frau, aber auch die zwischen Frau und Frau. Eine Ausstellung im November/Oktober 1930 in der Galerie Gurlitt folgte. Ein Jahr zuvor hatten ihr sicher ausreichende Verkäufe eine Reise in die Sowjetunion ermöglicht. 1933 wurde diese vielversprechende Entwicklung durch die Nationalsozialisten abrupt unterbrochen. Die Folge war die totale Abkehr von der vorherigen Malweise, von einer an die Figur gebundenen, zarten, gestisch freien und Tendenzen der Neuen Sachlichkeit verarbeitenden zur von Picasso beeinflußten kubo-expressiven Kunstauffassung – das war ihre Art des Widerstands gegen die Nationalsozialisten und deren offizielle Kunstpolitik. Zugleich begann sie als Plastikerin zu arbeiten. Die Zeit nach 1933 brachte bald den Verlust ihrer Verdienstmöglichkeiten durch Verbot oder „Gleichschaltung" der Zeitschriften; für die „angepaßten" hätte sie ohnehin nicht arbeiten wollen. So suchte sie sich etwa mit Bücherverkauf – umherziehend mit einem Karren – über Wasser zu halten. Nach dem Krieg entstanden aus Mangel an Farben Materialbilder aus Draht und Kordel. Ab 1949 entwarf sie für das existentialistische Kabarett „Die Badewanne" Kostüme und Bühnenbilder. Erste Ausstellungsbeteiligungen fanden schon 1945 statt. Reisen, die sie sich endlich leisten konnte folgten. Künstlerisch ist bald die allmähliche Annäherung an die Abstraktion zu beobachten.
