        Etidorhpa. or the End of earth. The Strange History of a Mysterious Being and the Account of a Remarkable Journey. As communicated in manuscript to Lleweln Drury who promised to print the same, but finally evaded the responsibility which was assumed by John Uri Lloyd.

      Cincinnati: John Uri Lloyd, 1895 - Large octavo. Original dark olive-green cloth over bevelled boards, gilt lettered spine, front cover lettered and decorated in gilt and silver, top edges gilt, drab plum endpapers. Spine slightly rolled, fabric of front cover just lightly rumpled. An excellent copy, uncommon in such condition. Portrait frontispiece of "I-Am-The-Man", numerous monochrome illustrations throughout by J. Augustus Knapp. First edition, of "one of the most splendid of a number of opulent fantasy extravaganzas issued in America in the late 19th century" (Locke). Rare: Copac locates only 2 copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Cambridge, National Library of Scotland), OCLC adds only one copy (Columbia), and George Locke states that it was "issued in an impression of 1299 copies" to subscribers and colleagues (the list is included at the end). This is the most extraordinary work of the eminent American pharmacologist John Uri Lloyd (1849-1936), "a long eccentric romance with interspersed sections that describe scientific experiments in chemistry and physics", whose hero, in the midst of metaphysical wranglings, is surprised by a bearded stranger called "I-Am-The-Man". This character explains that he has been taken to the centre of the earth by "an eyeless, sexless, nude humanoid" (Bleiler). Many things happen to "I-Am-The-Man", including the sampling of "liquid from a mushroom fruit [that induces] astonishing dreams of Dante-like hells, with misshapen organisms and gigantic hands emergent from the ground" (Bleiler). Etidorhpa (Aphrodite spelled backwards) became hugely popular, going through many editions and was translated into seven languages; there were Etidorhpa literary clubs in the United States and some parents even named their daughters Etidorhpa. Bleiler 1028: "it has long been a collector's item"; Howgego, Invented and Apocryphal Narratives of Travel, L43: "highly regarded by devotees of metaphysical fiction and the hollow-earth genre"; Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, I p. 141: "I have not seen this [first edition]".

        Titanic related Rare Document Signed, 8vo, Liverpool, March 1, 1895

      Our document is a "Certificate of Discharge" from the ship, "Britannic" for British seamen "F. G. Raddish" age "30." The route of this ship is identified as, "North Atlantic," and the dates of "engagement" and "discharge" are "6th February 1895" to "1st March 1895." Captain Edward Smith signs, "E. Smith" next to his title as "Master." The document is countersigned by a representative from the shipping company. At the bottom of the document are two stamps with "VG" in the center. One stamp indicates, "Character of Conduct," and the other, "Character of Ability." Tape residue shows on left serrated edge of the document. Smith began his life on the sea as a teenager when he signed on to the crew of the "Senator Weber" in 1867. He rose up the ranks and qualifications, earning certificates as a second mate in 1871, a first mate in 1873, and a master in 1875. The first vessel he commanded was the "Lizzie Fennell," a 1,000-ton ship that moved goods to and from South America. Smith switched to passenger vessels in 1880 when he went to work for the White Star Line which would own the "Titanic." By 1885, he was the first officer of the "Republic." Stepping on board the "Britannic" for the first time in 1884, he returned as its captain several times mainly between 1891-95, the year he signed our document. His success on the "Britannic" facilitated his securing commands of the newest and most impressive ships of the White Star Line. He became familiar with the transatlantic crossing and known for his easy rapport with the shipping line's elite passengers, thus acquiring his nickname as the "Millionaire's Captain." Smith also served in the British Royal Navy during the Boer War in South Africa (1899-1902). He is now best remembered for his final voyage at the helm of the exclusive and most impressive ship, "RMS. Titanic." Documents signed by Smith rarely become available.

        ALMAYER'S FOLLY

      1895. A Story of an Eastern River. New York: Macmillan and Co., 1895. 3 pp undated ads. Original black cloth. First American Edition of Conrad's first book, with a text that varies considerably from the English edition (because it was typeset from uncorrected proofs). We find the American edition to be somewhat scarcer than the English one (as well it should be, since only about half as many were issued: according to Keating "only 650 copies of this edition were printed, and it is a rare book").~This copy is in Cagle's binding "b" (no priority certain), black cloth with a double blind­stamped border rule on the covers and with "The Macmillan Company" at the foot of the spine. It is a near-fine copy, with scarcely any wear and with the endpapers intact (volume slightly aslant, faint variation in the sizing on the boards). Cagle A1b.2, binding b.

        [Photo Album]: Images of Vergennes, Vermont and Lake Champlain; New Hampshire, Gerrish Island and Camden, Maine

      [circa 1895-1905]. Commercially produced blank album measuring 10.5" x 12" with associated loose photos. Bound in half-leather and cloth boards, white silk moire endpapers. The entire collection consists of 153 photographs, with 69 tipped-in on the album boards and 84 loose prints. Most are platinum prints (including two cyanotypes) measuring about 7.5" x 4.5", with some dozens or so ranging in size from 1.5" x 4" to 6" x 8". Included are a few variant outdoor shots of the same or similar subject that have been trimmed into odd panoramic sizes. The album is neatly split in thirds at the spine with some scattered soiling to the exposed boards, thus good only, some laid-in images with scattered nicks and short tears at the edges, overall very good.Beautifully composed photographs taken by an unknown photographer, most likely a woman, from the town of Vergennes, Vermont. Images of the town's streets and houses taken at the height of its industrial boom in the late 19th Century, with many interior studies of women reading, outdoor and landscape views of mostly women in the surrounding countryside and creeks, and boating on Lake Champlain. Many other images of women vacationing and sailing off the Maine coast at Gerrish Island and Camden, and at leisure in a New Hampshire wood. Included is one photograph of four women in a wood, one of whom is reaching her left hand behind a large format camera, which suggests that the photographer might be her. An immensely appealing collection of images by this unknown Vermont artist. .

        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.

The entire collection consists of 153 photographs, with 69 tipped-in on the album boards and 84 loose prints. Most are platinum prints (including two cyanotypes) measuring about 7.5" x 4.5", with some dozens or so ranging in size from 1.5" x 4" to 6" x 8". Included are a few variant outdoor shots of the same or similar subject that have been trimmed into odd panoramic sizes. The album is neatly split in thirds at the spine with some scattered soiling to the exposed boards, thus good only, some laid-in images with scattered nicks and short tears at the edges, overall very good.Beautifully composed photographs taken by an unknown photographer, most likely a woman, from the town of Vergennes, Vermont. Images of the town's streets and houses taken at the height of its industrial boom in the late 19th Century, with many interior studies of women reading, outdoor and landscape views of mostly women in the surrounding countryside and creeks, and boating on Lake Champlain. Many other images of women vacationing and sailing off the Maine coast at Gerrish Island and Camden, and at leisure in a New Hampshire wood. Included is one photograph of four women in a wood, one of whom is reaching her left hand behind a large format camera, which suggests that the photographer might be her. An immensely appealing collection of images by this unknown Vermont artist. .

        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.
