        The White Wampum - Tekahionwake

      London: London John Lane, 1895. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. E.H.N.. Large 12mo - 7 ¾" x 5". Publisher's decorated brown cloth covered boards with tomahawk stamped in black decoration and the name Tekahion-wake + gold letters on spine (bright). The Condition is very good+, small nicks on corners of cover Ragged edged paper. Illustrated title page, viii, 88 pp. text, 16 pp. publisher's 1895 catalogue of the Bodley Head (List of Books in Belles Lettres), deckled edges, hand cut paper. This is a wonderful book of poems by Mohawk Native American poet/author E. Pauline Johnson, Tekahionwake. This is the first edition of this authors first book. An important book, generally regarded as the first work ever published by a Native American woman. Most of the 36 poems in this volume deal with her Native American heritage. Uncommon E. [Emily] Pauline Johnson was born on the Six Nations Indian Reserve near Brantford, Ontario, in 1862. She received little formal education, but had a natural aptitude for literature and began to write poetry at an early age. In her poetry she expressed, as no one had done before, the intensity and passion, the hopes and feelings - and much, too, of the tragedy - of her people. She died in Vancouver in 1913 and was laid to rest among the ferns and wild flowers in Stanley Park, a short distance from Siwash RockBiographer Charlotte Gray says: "Why does Pauline Johnson, Tekahionwake, the nineteenth century daughter of a Mohawk chief and an English gentlewoman continue to haunt our collective imagination? When the beautiful poetess Pauline Johnson swept onto the stage in her buckskin 'Indian' outfit and bear claw necklace or one of her elegant silk evening gowns, she mesmerized audiences from coast to coast. At at time when women rarely travelled, she crossed the country nineteen times and the Atlantic three times, equally at home in the salons of the rich and powerful and in the whistle-stop towns that dotted a growing country. Ironically, after gruelling years on the road and little income, Pauline finally realized her dream of becoming a bestselling author as she faced death. She left us with an enduring mystery: who was the young man in the locket she always wore and who sent beautiful flowers and a loving note to her funeral. In (her book), Charlotte Gray explores the many dimensions of Pauline Johnson's life. Complex and talented, she was a native rights advocate ahead of her time; a lyric poet who performed vaudevillian skits; a New Woman who wrote for 'The Mother's Magazine'; and an incurable romantic who never married.

        Cot and Cradle Stories

      William Briggs, Toronto 1895 - UNCOMMON BOOK AND RARE IN THIS NEAR FINE CONDITION.small 8vo, [1],[10],[11]-239p., [1 ad], Illustrated by b/w Port Front ( Mrs Traill is pictured on the first page at age 94) & b/w Illus & Line. Gilt embossed original dark maroon cloth, gilt decoration on front cover. Spine ends and corners gently rubbed, text quite crisp and very tight, near fine. This is quoted from 'Editor's Note', her grandniece, Mary Agnes Fitzgibbons at the front of this book; "The following paragraph from a letter dated Nov. 1st, 1895, in which she replies to my wish to include a story I had not found among the MS. sent me, is so characteristic, I make no apology for quoting it: "Among my rough copy I found some portions of 'The English Sparrows: their treatment in the United States, and flight to Canada.' I could have done something with the fragments had I not been taken ill. It was the very article that had been so marred by the mice; handfuls of the MS., the very best of it, lay in chips in the drawer. Those hungry varmints had devoured the most telling portions of the tale, made beds of the most touching incidents in the last hours of paterfamilias, after his loyal exhortations to his numerous family to follow his example, fight the Yankee birds, and die gloriously under the ancient and honorable British flag, the Union Jack." Of note from a production viewpoint, "the stamp of the two squirrels on this book is considered one of the best Canadian examples of elaborate decorated and illustrated design bindings of the last quarter of the nineteenth century and later." (Biblio Society 1996, Decorated cloth in America: publishers' bindings 1849-1910) "Cot and Cradle Stories" was her last book with her passing away four years late on August 27, 1899 at 97 years of age.Watters p. 407.

        Nagasaki.

      c. 1895 - Hand-coloured albumen print. Three-part panorama, good tonal range and in good condition, photographer's title and number in negative. Dimensions: 210 by 830mm. ( 8.5 by 33 inches). Despite being one of the most artistic and broad-ranging photographers of Japan in the late nineteenth century, little is known about Tamotsu Enami, and many assume him to be the same person as N. Enami. He trained under Ogawa Kazumara, before setting up his own studio in 1892. His studio was successful and had branches as far a field as Hong Kong and the Philippines. It was the only Japanese studio to produce both views and portraits of all sizes and types. Nagasaki lies at the head of a long bay which forms the best natural harbour on the island of Kyushu, and is home to one of Japan's oldest international ports, becoming a 'free port' in 1859. As much of the city was destroyed when it became the target of the world's second atomic bomb attack, these two 19th century views are therefore of great historical importance.

Latest date I found was 1895 footnote; Robert Burns; Limited Edition; Privately Printed for Subscribers Only; Rebound Leather; w6.6"xh9.8"; 143 Pages; Very Rare!!!Great For any Fan of the Famous Author or Collector. Great Gift Idea; Only 750 Copies Printed for Great Britain, from the only known copy of 1800 Dumfries Edition, this being #304!!!  ATTRIBUTES:  A Beautiful, sleek dark purple cloth cover design with darker purple morocco leather binding/corners, gold borders, ornate gold floral binding, gold tops of pages, marble end pages and some Great Classic Poetry from the Famous Author; Nice Size!!!  SUMMARY:  A COLLECTION OF FAVOURITE SCOTS SONGS ANCIENT AND MODERN SELECTED FOR THE USE OF THE CROCHALLAN FENCIBLES.Many scholars and Robert Burns enthusiasts prefer not to mention his association with the Merry Muses of Caledonia because they don't like him to be associated with this sort of material. Burns allegedly made no secret of his interest in erotic verse and bawdy song but apparently he kept this in a locked drawer at home. Well, you would, wouldn't you?It was first published within three or four years of his death and of the original only two copies are known to exist but it has since been published several times in facsimile editions. Burns both wrote and collected this material so there is no knowing how much of it is actually his. While some of it is local and clearly from the hand of the bard he may also have collected other material during his tours around Scotland.BACKGROUND:   Robert Burns (25 January 1759 ?" 21 July 1796) (also known as Robbie Burns Rabbie Burns, Scotland's favourite son, the Ploughman Poet, Robden of Solway Firth, the Bard of Ayrshire and in Scotland as The Bard) was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a light Scots dialect, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland. He also wrote in standard English, and in these writings his political or civil commentary is often at its bluntest.   CONDITION:  Condition is Good+/Very Good. Small wear to edges, faint mark to lower back board, darker purple in person, some light blemishing here and there, hinges/text block are very good for around 120 years old!!!

        STELLA AND AN UNFINISHED COMMUNICATION: STUDIES OF THE UNSEEN

      London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co New York: Macmillan & Co,. 1895. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 1-177 [178: ads],. original green cloth, front panel ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, top edge untrimmed, black coated endpapers.. Binding slightly leaned, touch of wear to cloth at head and tail of. spine panel, a near fine, bright copy. Quite scarce. (#8212). First edition. The first appearance of two important nineteenth century science fiction stories, both collected later in Hinton's SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES, SECOND SERIES (1896). "Stella" is "the story of an invisible girl of a rather moralistic bent, who has various adventures;" "An Unfinished Communication" is "a much more baroque tale in which the fact that duration can be represented as a fourth dimension is used to support the supposition that interference from a higher space-time entered after death might allow the record of a lifetime to be productively reconstructed." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 137. "An Unfinished Communication" is a "remarkable posthumous fantasy in which characters seek redemption by operating in the fourth dimension (time) to amend the errors they made in life." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2- 80. Hinton's work was destined to be the inspiration for other writers whose works would eclipse his own. His SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES provided ideas that may have influenced the early work of H. G. Wells and his speculations on multi-dimensionality inspired the more famous speculations of P. D. Ouspensky. See Rudy Rucker, "Life in the Fourth Dimension: C. H.

        Deutsches Privatrecht. Band 4 (Familienrecht) aus dem Nachlaß hrsg. von Karl Kroeschell und Karin Nehlsen-von Stryk.

      Berlin, Verlag von Duncker & Humblot, 1895-2010.. 4 Bde. Gr.-8vo. (1: 1895) XXXII, 897; (2: 1905) XLVI, 1021; (3: 1917) CXXIV, 1036; (4: 2010) XII, 468 S. Schöne neue Halbleinenbände. (Systematisches Handbuch der deutschen Rechtswissenschaft, begr. von Karl Binding, hrsg. von Friedrich Oetker, Abtlg. II, Tl. 3, Bde. 1-3). (Bd. 1 mit kl. Privatst.a.T., Bd. 2 mit St.a.T.).. Erste Ausgabe. - Gierke (1841-1921) war die überragende Gelehrtengestalt innerhalb der Wissenschaft vom Deutschen Recht um die Jahrhundertwende, der auch erheblichen Einfluss auf die endgültige Gestalt des BGB genommen hat. Gierke arbeitete bereits am vierten Bande seines Genossenschaftsrechts, als er 1884 einen Ruf nach Heidelberg und 1887 schließlich den nach Berlin annahm und als im Jahre 1888 der "Erste Entwurf eines Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuches für das Deutsche Reich" erschienen ist. Der stark romanistisch, insbesondere durch Bernhard Windscheid (1817-1892) als eines in "Gesetzesparagraphen gegossenes Windscheid'sches Lehrbuch" ausgerichtete Gesetzentwurf forderte eine Stellungnahme von Gierke geradezu heraus oder wie er es formulierte: "...zwang mir den Kampf für die bedrohten germanischen Gedanken im künftigen deutschen Privatrecht auf". Die grundlegende Kritik von Gierke zwang den Gesetzgeber zur Einrichtung einer Zweiten Kommission. Für Gierke hatte dies weitreichende Konsequenzen: "Meine Arbeit am Genossenschaftsrecht wurde dadurch zunächst nur zeitweilig unterbrochen. Als ich aber einige Jahre darauf den Entschluß fasste, der Aufforderung Bindings zu entsprechen und für sein Handbuch ein "deutsches Privatrecht" zu verfassen, brach ich die dogmengeschichtliche Arbeit mitten im Satze ab." Die ersten zwei Bände des deutschen Privatrechts erschienen 1895 und 1905. Nunmehr zögerte Gierke, denn auch der Verleger des Genossenschaftsrechts drängte auf Fertigstellung des vierten Bandes. Gierke entschied sich für den Abschluss des Deutschen Privatrechts, das 1917 erschienen ist und riet dem Verleger, den Druck des vierten Bandes, den er für nicht abgeschlossen hielt, wie eine Veröffentlichung aus seinem Nachlaß zu betrachten.

BACKGROUND: Thomas Hardy, OM (2 June 1840 – 11 January 1928) was an English novelist and poet. A Victorian realist in the tradition of George Eliot, he was influenced both in his novels and in his poetry by Romanticism, especially William Wordsworth. Charles Dickens was another important influence. Like Dickens, he was highly critical of much in Victorian society, though Hardy focused more on a declining rural society. While Hardy wrote poetry throughout his life and regarded himself primarily as a poet, his first collection was not published until 1898. Initially, therefore, he gained fame as the author of novels, including Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), and Jude the Obscure (1895). However, beginning in the 1950s Hardy has been recognized as a major poet; he had a significant influence on the Movement poets of the 1950s and 1960s, including Phillip Larkin. The English author Thomas Hardy set all of his major novels in the south and southwest of England. He named the area "Wessex" after the medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom that existed in this part of that country prior to the Norman Conquest. Although the places that appear in his novels actually exist, in many cases he gave the place a fictional name. For example, Hardy's hometown of Dorchester is called Casterbridge in his books, most famously in The Mayor of Casterbridge. In an 1895 preface to the novel Far From the Madding Crowd he described Wessex as "a merely realistic dream country". CONDITION: Conditions are Good+/Very Good. Some wear to edges, few marks to boards, most are very good, boards darker in person, can't find map in Vol.I, rest of books have them, small bookplate to lower inner boards L.W. Hodson, pages are very good, light blemishing to some frontispieces, hinges are very good, text blocks sprung from spine as issue so could be tighter but intact. Overall, for 90-120 years old they're in Good+/Very Good Condition!!! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
