        The Bibelot: (21 Vols Complete) A Reprint of Poetry and Prose for Book Lovers, chosen in part from scarce editions and sources not generally known COMPLETE SET OF 21 VOLUMES

      Thomas B. Mosher, 1895. First Editions First Printings. Hardcover. Like New. The Bibelot: A Reprint of Poetry and Prose for Book Lovers, chosen in part from scarce editions and sources not generally known. A COMPLETE SET OF 21 VOLUMES 1-20 + Index. Smaller Hardcover bound books. Near Fine (9 of 10) / in Very Good+ dustjackets (8 of 10). / in Very Good- slipcases (6 of 10) on average. Several volumes (7, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21) have _uncut_ pages - the pages have never been opened or read. Several still have the cardboard cover that slips into the slipcase to fully protect the dj spine. The DustJackets are now protected inside archival plastic protector sleeves. Most of the dj's have some acid browning from the cardboard slipcases & covers as usual. This set is in the best condition we've ever heard tell of, or seen. Some specific volumes have some minor damage: 16 - scratch/tear to dj spine, 21 - tiny hole to dj spine, and the slipcase is broken, 14 - half split to one top edge of the slipcase. All the other slipcases have wear to the corners but are still firm. Cream paper spines with light blue paper covered boards & dustjackets, 4 raised bands, printed paper spine labels & slipcase labels, outer & lower page edges untrimmed. We have included extensive photos of a volume so you can see a sample of the low end of the condition, most volumes have less browning to the dj. [The Bibelot featured the lesser known works of writers such as Algernon Charles Swinburne, William Morris, Arthur Symons, D. G. Rossetti, Austin Dobson, J. A. Symonds, Robert Louis Stevenson, Oscar Wilde, and Fiona MacLeod.]. * * * * * * * * * * {FREE Media Mail Shipping! Images available for any item, just ask.

        Almayerâ??s Folly: a Story of an Eastern River

      8vo. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1895. 8vo, 272pp. Original green cloth, gilt-stamped on backstrip, top edge gilt. Covers a bit rubbed and stained, corners worn, approx. 26 pp. show small repairs to inside edge not affecting text block. Quarter dark green morocco slipcase. First edition, first issue, of Conradâ??s first book. A significant association copy commemorating the literary and personal relationship of Joseph Conrad and Edward Garnett. By urging T. Fisher Unwin to publish Conradâ??s first book, Almayerâ??s Folly, Garnett had launched Conradâ??s career and the two subsequently became close friends. This copy marks the beginning of that friendship although interestingly Garnett inscribed it â??E libris Edward Garnettâ? and gave it to Dr. Arthur Maude who also signed in pencil. Pasted in the front is the final page of a letter in Conradâ??s hand in pencil. A few pencil notes in the text could be Garnett or more likely by Maude. We recently had Garnettâ??s copy of Tales of Unrest, from a different collection. Wise, Ashley Library, Vol. 1, p. 231.

        Cesar antechrist.

      (Paris), Edition du Mercure de France, 1895.. 12°. 146 + 8 S. OBrosch. m. OSch.. EA. In franz. Sprache. Eins von 206 Exemplaren. - Tafel S. 64 m. Einriss, OSch. m. geringen Fehlstellen am unteren Kapital, kl. Wurmspur, etw. gelockert, Seiten unaufgeschnitten. Im Ganzen schönes Exemplar. - Jarry's, (1873 - 1907), Stück "Cäsar Antichrist" (1895) basierte zum Teil auf den Texten der Apokalypse im Buch der Offenbarung nach Johannes und vereinte alle seiner späteren Themen wie Symbolismus und Parallelen einer Gegenwelt und des Absurden in sich. - Jarry's play Caesar Antichrist (1895) drew on this movement for material. This is a work that bridges the gap between serious symbolic meaning and the type of critical absurdity with which Jarry would soon become associated. Using the biblical Book of Revelation as a point of departure, Caesar Antichrist presents a parallel world of extreme formal symbolism in which Christ, Jesus of Nazareth is resurrected not as an agent of spirituality but as an agent of the Roman Empire that seeks to dominate spirituality. It is a unique narrative that effectively links the domination of the soul to contemporaneous advances in the field of Egyptology such as the 1894 excavation the Narmer Palette, an ancient artifact used for situating the rebus within hermeneutics. - Das zweite von Jarry veröffentlichte Buch mit dessen Illustrationen und sorgfältig ausgewählten Holzschnitten vers.

        Lives of Indian Officers

      London: W.H. Allen & Co., Limited,, 1895. 3 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to spine, blind panels to the boards. Portrait frontispiece to volumes I and II, folding map and 2 plans, one of them folding to volume III. Spines a touch sunned, and now relined, endpapers browned and the title pages slightly by contact, but overall a very good set. First published 1867, this is the third edition, but the first to be supplemented, in volume III, by a revised version of Holmes's Four Famous Soldiers. Intended by Kaye to be regarded "in some sort as a Biographical History of India from the days of Cornwallis to the days of Canning." (preface) Far from common and attractive thus.

        FOUNDLING MICK

      1895 - (P'tit Bonhomme). With Illustrations. London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company, 1895. Original blue cloth pictorially decorated in black, olive, orange and gilt. First British Edition (and first edition in the English language) of one of Verne's scarcest titles -- some would say the absolute scarcest of all. P'TIT BONHOMME was originally published in French in 1893; FOUNDLING MICK was not published in America. Foundling Mick is an Irish orphan who rises past various obstacles to be a success in the Dublin business world. The spectacular front cover scene shows Mick being rescued as flames burst through the roof of the school; even the book's title is engulfed in flames.~This is one of the regular copies, without beveled edges on the boards and without gilt edges on the leaves. It is in attractive condition -- near-fine, with quite minor rubbing at the extremities, cracked endpapers, and one plate which is worn in the margins (it must have once been loose). Partly for its scarcity and partly for its dramatic binding scene, this is one of the most sought-after of Verne first editions. Taves & Michaluk V041; Myers 25.

        THE TIME MACHINE

      THE TIME MACHINE, Holt, 1895, first edition (first issue with the authors name misspelled as H.S. Wells on the title page), inner hinges starting, else a g/vg copy with somewhat different text than its later English counterpart. SIGNED by the author (just below the names of the previous owners?) on what appears to be a tipped in page. The authors first novel, a round trip to the year 802,701 and beyond. Most certainly a highspot of modern literature and needless to say, a cornerstone book in the building of a science fiction library. A very scarce book.

        [Original Photographs]: Two Portraits of a Young Woman

      Richmond, Virginia. [circa 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. .

        Ueber eine neue Art von Strahlen. (Vorläufige Mittheilung).

      . Würzburg, Sitzungsberichte der Physik.-Med. Gesellschaft zu Würzberg, 1895 (1896). 9 pp. [numbered 132-141], including several calculations. Contemporary half cloth over marbled boards. Spine with gilt title.l The discovery and first announcement of X-rays, or Röntgen rays, in the Sitzungsberichte of the society, year 1895, number 9: "Am 28. Dezember wurde als Beitrag eingereicht: W. C. Röntgen: Ueber eine neue Art von Strahlen". This discovery brought Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (1845-1923) the first Nobel Prize in Physics (1901). The importance of this discovery was immediately understood and almost instantly this paper was translated into English and republished in Nature on the 23rd of January, 1896. The later Nature-edition is better known in the English-speaking world. The publisher, meanwhile, rushed out six editions of the offprint, enhancing the layout with each edition, adding printed wrappers, then title pages, and then additional advertising bands, and almost immediately announced translations into French, Italian and English (Glasser, pp. 23-24). The offprints may in fact be more common than the official publication in the Sitzungsberichte. We offer the complete year 1895, bound with the year 1894. The 1894 volume contains two more papers by Röntgen, namely "Mitteilung einiger Versuche mit einem rechtwinkeligen Glasprisma", and "Ueber den Einfluss des Druckes auf die Dielectricitäts Constanten des Wassers und des Aethylalkohols (Schluss)". Stamp on the title of the 1895 volume, and vague stamp on the title of the 1894 volume; otherwise a very good copy. Glasser 767 (with printing error "Dez. 1896" for "Dez. 1895"); PMM, 380; Sparrow, 171..

        THE PURPLE COW

      1895. [BURGESS, Frank Gelett]. THE PURPLE COW. [San Francisco: William Doxey, 1895]. 8vo., printed wraps. First Edition, second state. Merle Johnson states that the first state was printed on rough China paper but, because it caused the type to break, the publisher later printed it on thinner and smoother paper- and printed the pages on one side only (as here). A Merle Johnson High Spot of America Literature. Signed presentation (in pencil) from Burgess on the front cover: "To my friend May Day, with the compliments of F.G.B." While collectable copies of this fragile pamphlet are uncommon, inscribed copies are almost unheard of and certainly scarce. Good (few edges roughly opened). $750.00.

        Joining the Navy; or Abroad with Uncle Sam

      Hartford, Connecticut: American Publishing Company. 1895. First. First edition. 298pp., portrait frontispiece, plates. A tear on the front fly near the hinge with a little offsetting at the top of the page and wear at the ends of the lightly toned spine, a very good or better copy. This copy Inscribed by the author to the President of the United States: "To The President, Hon. Wm. McKinley, With the respectful homage of the Author, Jno. H. Paynter, Wash. D.C. Feb 20/98." The New Castle, Delaware-born author, after graduating from Lincoln University in 1883, was about to begin the study of medicine at Howard when he suffered a partial loss of his eyesight that prohibited him from embarking on the extensive course of study. He chose instead to make a cruise on a U.S. Man-of-War as a cabin boy, one of the few positions available to Negroes in the Navy. This book recounts his experiences throughout his world cruise. Paynter resumed government service with the U.S. Postal Service and spent 39 years working for the Department of the Treasury. Much later in life he wrote several other books, including one on the problems facing the Negro in government service. Joining the Navy saw subsequent republication. First in the 1930s an edition was published with an introduction by W.E.B. Du Bois, and in 1980 the United States Government Printing Office published a facsimile edition. Work p.477, Blockson Collection 908 (Second edition), Brignano 379. .
