        Pony Tracks (With ALS)

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1895. First edition. First edition, first printing. Very good or better, showing slight edgewear to the extremtities, tips; spine titles slightly darkened; slight wear to the spine cloth at crown and foot. All in all, however, a significantly more attractive copy than is usually encountered. Previous owners bookplate to front pastedown; gift inscription on the front free endpaper stating "...from Frederic Remington," but not in Remington's hand. Laid in is an (apparently unrelated) one page note from the artist, with his New Rochelle address, to an unidentified fellow artist, requesting passes for an Arts Club exhibition; the note --in fine condition, folded once for mailing-- is signed in full by Remington. A bright and desirable copy of Remington's first book, with the bonus of an ALS with its own not inconsiderable visual appeal.

        [Caption title]: Manifesto of the Associated Anarchists. To Comrades, Friends and Sympathisers of the International Anarchist Communist Movement

      [No place: no publisher. 1895]. First. Presumably, the first and only edition. Self-wrappers, [8]pp. Some general soiling, and mild creases, very good. Signed at the end in type, "C.T. Quinn" followed by an ornamental device; beneath, in purple letters: "The Associated Anarchists. 'Anarchy is Order,' Group No. 1". Although a manifesto from a group of associated anarchists sounds a bit antithetical, this "Group No. 1" managed to output this now exceedingly rare tract. The Associated Anarchists were short-lived, as was their political organ, The Alarm. The group was ridiculed in W.C. Hart's Confessions of an Anarchist (1906) who referred to Quinn as the "Christian Anarchist" and accused the group as being juvenile. Hart also alleged that the AA misappropriated George Bernard Shaw's writings and beliefs on anarchy, and was scornful that the group was doing what anarchists shouldn't do: organize. OCLC locates a copy in the Netherlands, cf. 81434974. Not in COPAC. .

        Photograph Album from Virginia and West Virginia

      Oblong octavo. Flexible cloth with blank black leaves. 240 photographs of different sizes and processes. Minor wear and some oxidizing to some of the photographs, overall very good. A few are captioned, usually with first names only. Undated, but spanning circa 1895-1920. Location not immediately obvious but reportedly the album had a Virginia origin, and there are many photographs from a railroad and logging location that display the post office for Mullins (now Mullens) in southern West Virginia. A wide variety of images that seem to center around a few young women, probably sisters, beginning near the end of the 19th Century and progressing through the first decade or so of the 20th. The young women are shown in a variety of poses and outfits: in bathing costumes, humorously eating bananas, picnicking, and courting. There are also pictures of various sporting activities including tennis, fishing, croquet, canoeing, and a baseball game near the railroad tracks. Curiously there is an image of John Mulbetsch, All-American football player for the University of Michigan (Mulbetsch later coached at Marshall College in West Virginia). There are also numerous photos that feature an imposing factory in the background. A substantial number of images are devoted to lumber mills, house building, surveying, and the construction of the railroad, presumably at or near Mullins, and the transformation of the mountainous and rustic area into a town, including several images of rudimentary businesses such as The Railroad and Miners Pharmacy and the Busy Bee Restaurant. .

        The Novels

      London: J. M. Dent and Company,, 1895. Edited by Reginald Brimley Johnson. In ten volumes. With illustrations by William C. Cooke. 10 volumes, small octavo (171 × 108 mm). Original light green cloth, spines and front boards lettered in gilt, facsimile author's signature to front boards in gilt, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Front free endpapers a little browned, spines ever so slightly rolled and some bumping to tips, boards just a little marked, a very good set. After Richard Bentley the fledgling London publisher J. M. Dent was the next to take up Jane Austen's novels for publication. The first Dent ten-volume set of the novels, published in 1892?-98, is notable as the first to have any critical apparatus. This set here comprises fifth editions with the exception of Sense and Sensibility which is a fourth edition.

Series of twelve color plates, one for each month, designed by the calendar of the Parisian department store of La Belle Jardiniere., image sheet size approximately 20 x 15.2 cm. In the early 1890's Grasset began experimenting with a new form of printing called chromotypography invented by his friend, Firmin Gillot.

Both Arwas and Murray Robertson date this calendar to 1896, but it was offered in the May 15, 1894 issue of La Plume (which was dedicated to Grasset's work). La Plume offered the calendar for sale on vellum at 5 francs, quoting it as "extremely rare." Grasset spent approximately 20 years working for La Belle Jardinere, designing additional calendars in 1899 and 1904. GORDON RAY p.465. Grasset "developed an early version of Art Nouveau to which he subsequently remained faithful, developing it constantly until 1900." Plates loose as issued in lettered gray wrappers, separated at spine, some light marginal toning at very edges outside the image area. In fine custom gilt lettered cloth portfolio with silk ties.

Fawcett, largely from drawings by Richard Alington' (Anker). A very fine and partly unopened copy of this popular work which went through many editions.

        A day after newly sworn in Police Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt made a surprise early morning tour of his police on patrol ?pressed though I am for time,? he finds time to congratulate an old friend

Hopkins, Court of Claims Washington, D.C. Scattered foxing. Fine condition.In full, ?My dear Col. Hopkins:- Pressed though I am for time I read your articles and was greatly pleased with both. You have a right to be proud of Bromley?s letter. I congratulate you sincerely.? TR then handwrites an additional sentence: ?You certainly made a stir!? Col. Archibald D. Hopkins (1842-1926), son of educator Mark Hopkins, was Chief Clerk of the U.S. Court of Claims from 1873-1914.Roosevelt was sworn in as Police Commissioner on May 6, 1895. The ?Chicago Daily Tribune? reported on June 9, 1895, a day after TR wrote this letter to Col. Hopkins, ?pressed though I am for time,? that, in the early morning hours of June 7th, Roosevelt went ?seeing for himself how the police officers were attending to business. He found three of them leaning against a liquor store, another sitting on a stoop with his hat off and dozing, and still another was holding a long chat with a woman. The three scenes were not in the same place, but the policemen acted in much the same way. In each instance the query by ... Roosevelt why the men did not patrol their beats was answered by a threat to ?run him in? if he did not ?move on.?... The statement ?I am Police Commissioner Roosevelt? put a different face on the matter ... They were let go with a severe lecture, but it is stated that all found similarly delinquent in the future will be put on trial. The probable result of this will be a great reform in police methods in New York City...?"

        The Fate of Father Sheehy: A Tale of Tipperary Eighty Years Ago. The Daughter of Tyrconnell: A Tale of the Reign of James the First

      New York: P. J. Kenedy: Excelsior Catholic Publishing House.. Good with no dust jacket. 1895. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. 12mo - 18 x 12 cm.; 132 - 152 pp. A light tan decorative cloth binding over boards with gilt lettering on the spine and the front board. Patterned end papers of the same tone. A volume with two of Sadlier's Irish stories bound as one. The tissue protected frontis engravings are present, one for each story and both are by A. Williams. Small engraved tailpieces grace the end of each chapter. Pagination notes: the first numbered page for "The Fate of Father Sheehy" is page 10 with there being 5 pages before that, the frontis counting as two of those pages. The first numbered page for "The Daughter of Tyrconnell" is page 10 with there being 5 pages before that, the frontis counting as two of those pages. An irregularity to be sure but explained (an educated conjecture here) by the fact that each one of these stories had been previous published individually (1863 by Sadlier followed by Duffy of Ireland in the next year) and the pagination for this combined edition follows that of the previously published individual volumes with the blank pages being left out for this edition. (The copyright is stated as belonging to D. and J. Sadlier, 1885, which is another reason for believing so.) There is no sign in this volume of any pages having been removed or other pages having been present. Previous owner's dated name (1879) on the recto of the first blank preliminary with a second note from a later owner (1982) as to where they had acquired this volume. Another previous owner (a cloistered French religious order: The Congregation of the Cross and the Seven Dolors) has their stamp on the bottom of the first title page and on the bottom of page 51 where it partially obscures one word - 'and'. Tipped in on the gutter margin of the last printed page of the second story, is a small fold out eight page catalogue of publications available from P. J. Kenedy, Excelsior Catholic Publishing House of New York. Quite moderate shelf wear to the externals with light rubbings and the lower spine showing the most. The back cover has a dollar size red stain, and it is most definitely there and very red, with some similar smaller drops just below it. This does not show on the spine and is on the surface only. Both end paper hinges show a bit of looseness though there is no tearing and the binding of the text block is sound and solid. Quite a nice copy even considering the faults, of a scarce book. Digital images of any aspect are available upon request. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted. .

        On a New Kind of Rays" in Nature 53, November-April 1895-1896, pp. 274-276

      Important first announcement in English of Wilhelm Röntgen's seminal 1895 discovery of X-rays. The publication of the first English translation of Röntgen's discovery played a critical role in the rapid dissemination of information about the new technology, a technology whose discovery surprised Röntgen himself to say nothing of the rest of the world. In remarkable testimony to the import of Röntgen's discovery, in 1896 alone some 50 books and pamphlets and over 1,000 papers on X-rays were published. & & "In the autumn of 1895, Röntgen, an unassuming physics professor at Würzburg, undertook a series of experiments with William Crookes' version of the 'Geisslertube,' a form of vacuum tube sealed at the ends with platinum terminals to permit the passage of an electric current through the tube" (Christie's, Important Scientific Books, The Richard Green Collection). "Hertz and Lenard had published on the penetrating powers of cathode rays (electrons) and Röntgen thought that there were unsolved problems worth investigation... & & "As a preliminary to viewing the cathode rays on a fluorescent screen, Röntgen completely covered his discharge tube with a black card, and then chanced to notice that such a screen lying on a bench some distance away was glowing brightly. Although others had operated Crookes tubes in laboratories for over thirty years, it was Röntgen who found that X-rays are emitted by the part of the glass wall of the tube that is opposite the cathode and that receives the beam of cathode rays. & & "Röntgen spent six weeks in absolute concentration, repeating and extending his observations on the properties of the new rays. He found that they travel in straight lines, cannot be refracted or reflected, are not deviated by a magnet, and can travel about two meters in air. He soon discovered the penetrating properties of the rays... The apparent magical natuire of the new rays was something of a shock even to Röntgen... On 22 December he brought his wife into the laboratory and made an X-ray photograph of her hand" (DSB). & & In this paper, 'On a New Kind of Rays,' Röntgen "described the rays' photographic properties and their amazing ability to penetrate all substances, even living flesh. For his discovery, Röntgen was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for 1901" (Norman 1841).& & The importance of X-rays in surgery, medicine and metallurgy is well known. The most important aspect of Röntgen's experiments was "his discovery of matter in a new form that completely revolutionized the study of chemistry and physics. Laue and the Braggs have used X-rays to show the atomic structure of crystals. Moseley reconstructed the periodic table of the elements. Becquerel was directly inspired by Röntgen's results to the investigation that discovered radio-activity. Finally, J. J. Thomson enunciated the electron theory as a result of investigating the nature of the X-rays" (DSB). & & This volume also contains six other papers commenting on Röntgen's discovery, including J. J. Thomson and Oliver Lodge (February 6, 20, and 27; March 5; April 23 and 30). The volume also includes Jean Perrin's "New Experiments on the Kathode Rays," the first publication in English of Perrin's 1895 discovery that cathode rays are negatively charged. CONDITION & DETAILS: London, Macmillan and Co. Royal 8vo. Ex-libris: Institute of Paper Chemistry, Appleton, Wisconsin; bearing minimal markings and only slight ghosting from the removal of a spine label. Bound in green cloth, gilt lettered at the spine; marbled endpapers. A bit of rubbing and scuffing at the edges; tightly bound and bright and clean throughout. Very good condition.

        Commercial and Library Atlas of the British Isles from the Ordnance Survey. With Index-Gazetteer, Plans of Towns, also copious Letterpress Descriptions, Tables of Populations etc.THE FINEST NINETEENTH CENTURY ATLAS OF THE BRITISH ISLES

      G.W. Bacon, 1895, 1895Roy. 4to., First Edition, with title in red and black, 2 double-page sets of coloured key maps and charts, 3 double-page coloured country maps, 61 double-page coloured regional and county maps, 37 double-page coloured city and town plans, and 5 double-page coloured additional maps, small neat surname on front free endpaper; strongly bound in original half calf, black pebble-grain cloth boards, upper board blocked with title in gilt, yellow endpapers, gilt edges, neatly rebacked in calf gilt to style, corners lightly bruised else a a remarkably bright, crisp, clean copy. This truly splendid atlas has a fair claim to being the finest nineteenth-century production of its kind. The key maps and charts depict population, revenue, expenditure, growth of trade, imports, exports, etc. The country maps show England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The splendid regional and county maps are shown generally at 3 miles to the inch permitting significant detail. The city and town plans are shown generally at 2 miles to the inch. The additional maps include the Isle of Wight, Channel Islands & Isle of Man, geological England and a Mercator World.All maps are based on the latest Ordnance Surveys. Railways are shown carefully, with stations engraved in bold, and include lines under construction. County maps are engraved beyond county boundaries for ease of reference. City and town plans give extraordinary detail without overcrowding. The railway map of London and Environs shows each Company's line in a separate style with an alphabetical list of nearly 300 stations. The Letterpress includes geographical, historical, political, statistical, scientific and other information. The alphabetical gazetteer totals nearly 50,000 names and includes 1,000 principal towns with populations.This atlas, and its subsequent reissues, is frequently broken for its individual maps (the double-page format greatly facilitates this), and is equally often found in poor state due to its bulk and heaviness.The present copy is the best we have seen in thirty years. Apart from a little inconsequential dust-soiling the contents appears virtually unread and the sympathetic rebacking preserves it for the future.IN THIS CONDITION A RARE SURVIVAL
