        The Rhyming Dictionary of the English Language in Which the Whole Language is Arranged According to Its Terminations... Revised and Enlarged by J. Longmuir

      London: George Routledge and Sons. [circa 1895]. Revised and enlarged edition. Octavo. Red cloth. Gilt lettering dulled but readable, modest wear to the spine ends, a tight, very good copy. Irving Berlin's copy with his bookplate on the front pastedown. Housed in a custom quarter leather and marbled papercovered clamshell case. Accompanied by twenty slips of paper, originally laid into the book, with holograph notes by Berlin. Of these, seven contain working manuscript notes for a rhyming song. The transitory and fragmentary nature of the notes are obviously inconclusive, but it appears this song is currently unpublished. Also in the book is a letter to Mrs. Berlin from a Las Vegas correspondent, and some other material. Further provenance on request. A chance to remake musical history: in an interview in his 90s (he lived to 101), Berlin claimed never to use a rhyming dictionary (Davis, The Craft of Lyric Writing, p. 212). A fascinating artifact, a compositional tool from one of the greatest songwriters of all time, and, among them, one of the few to write his own lyrics as well as music. Berlin wrote approximately 1500 songs during his long career, many of them recognizable American standards such as "Alexander's Ragtime Band" (his first hit, in 1911), "Puttin' on the Ritz," "God Bless America," "Easter Parade," and "White Christmas." In addition he wrote the scores for 19 Broadway shows and 18 Hollywood films. By virtue of the endurance of his individual compositions, his lasting influence on other musicians, and the sheer length and breadth of his career, Berlin occupies a singular position in the history of popular music. .

She hopes to obtain through the intermediary of Lord Cornwallis compensation for her belongings. She is equally a stranger to the two nations--and it is on this base that she is soliciting--She thinks that through your good offices she hopes to achieve her wishes, and begged me to recommend her to you. Without inquiring whether the English Plenipotentiary can help her, I will leave this to your judgment if you deemed it right to present her claims to him. I have not hesitated to accord to her youthfulness and interest she inspires the recommendation she desires. I am very glad to have the occasion to complain, as a good sister, of your silence and I hope you do me the favor of giving me some of your news. Count always on my friendship and charge yourself with a thousand loving things for my good little sister. Good-bye my dear little brother. I love you and kiss you tenderly. Josephine Bonaparte."

        Rare Signed Photograph (SP) of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

      - DESCRIPTION OF ITEM: An excellent portrait post card photograph of Conan Doyle taken circa 1895 and signed by him at the base with a clear black fountain pen ink autograph signature 'Arthur Conan Doyle'. The photograph was taken by Victorian portrait photographers "Elliott and Fry", whose offices at the time were ironically in Baker Street, London. A very rare item. HISTORICAL CONTEXT: Forever to be best remembered for writing the Sherlock Holmes stories, the deductive powers of the famous detective were partly based on Joseph Bell a lecturer Conan Doyle had met when studying medicine at Edinburgh University. Stressing the importance of close observation when making a diagnosis, Bell had a habit of picking out a stranger and deducing his occupation and recent activities simply through closely observing him. As the Holmes stories gained popularity, Conan Doyle actually found himself being asked to perform a Holmes-like role and intervene in cases of miscarriages of justice. For example, using similar forensic methods, he was responsible for overturning the convictions of two men, George Edalji (in 1906) and Oscar Slater (in 1908). Conan Doyle also developed a fervent belief in Spiritualism, writing a number of books on the subject as well as undertaking lectures tours in Europe and America. Close friends with Harry Houdini, their relationship ultimately broke down when Doyle and his wife organised a séance for Houdini to contact his dead mother in an attempt to prove the truth of their Spiritualist beliefs. Houdini took grave offence believing them to be exploiting his mother's memory whilst Conan Doyle felt Houdini was wilfully denying the evidence he had provided for Spiritualism. As well as his literary achievements, Conan Doyle was a great sports enthusiast, an advocate of the role of boxing in character development and is credited with popularising cross country skiing in Switzerland. In addition, he also played as a goalkeeper for Portsmouth football team in 1882 whilst practising as a doctor in the city and beginning to write the first Holmes stories. DETAILED CONDITION REPORT : 13.9cm x 8.9cm. Light chipping to top and right edge and slight bumping of corners. Light silvering. Very light soiling to bottom right corner. Light handling soiling to left and right edge on the rear of card. Else fine. ALL ITEMS SOLD BY 'A PIECE OF HISTORY' CARRY A LIFETIME GUARANTEE OF AUTHENTICITY.

        BREATH FROM THE VELDT

      London: Henry Sotheran, 1895. First edition. With a great profusion of full-page plates, textual illustrations and fine full-page gravures. Folio, publisher&#146;s original white polished buckram over boards with pictorial decorations and titling on the upper cover and spine, t.e.g. x, 236 pp. Some foxing to the prelims, otherwise internally bright and clean, externally some wear and darkening to the cloth, sturdy, a very attractive copy. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION AND A BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED WORK BY MILLAIS. ONE OF THE BEST ILLUSTRATED BOOKS OF AFRICA. &#147;South Africa, with its attraction for the sportsman and the naturalist, has already given birth to so many books by abler pens than mine, that some apology seems necessary for the appearance of these pages. Let me say then at once that though they are occupied in the main with dissertation on, and adventures in pursuit of big game, I have endeavored as far as possible to avoid trespassing on the domain of the standard authorities on this subject. My object has been rather t o supplement from personal observation what is already known of such animals as I came across during a recent tour in South Africa; to present to the best of my ability a true picture of life in that country, whether of man, beat of bird; and to give the sportsmen of that period what help I can as a guide to the hunting grounds and how to work them to advantage.<br> My drawing will no doubt be disappointing to admirers of the grim and gory, who know the lion only as presented in picture-books, with mane trailing on the ground, claws extended, and mouth full of blood and foam. Exception too may be taken by the uninitiated to the fantastic attitudes of some of the birds and beasts here represented. But that I cannot help. I have drawn only what I have seen, and as I have seen it, and it is not my fault if my subjects declined to display themselves in the approved conventional form.&#148; From the Author&#146;s Preface.

        Combat du Chevalier d'Eon.

      Encre sur papier 1895 - - Encre sur papier Fin XIXème, 27 x 21 cm. - Dessin original à l'encre. Signature du cachet de la signature de l'artiste dans l'angle inférieur droit de l'oeuvre et signature du tampon du monogramme de l'artiste signature du cachet de l'atelier au verso. Mention manuscrite au dos, au crayon à papier, du titre, et de la date : 1895. Très bel état de conservation. Provenance : atelier de l'artiste, référencée au catalogue Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, né à Étrépagny en 1861 et mort à Paris en 1932, est un important peintre français. Il commence sa carrière aux côtés de peintres d'avant-garde tels que Vincent Van Gogh ou Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Avec Émile Bernard, il est l'inventeur du Cloisonnisme. De 1884 à 1893, Louis Anquetin ne cesse d'explorer les possibilités nouvelles offertes par la libération introduite par l'Impressionnisme dans la peinture française. A partir de 1893, à la suite d'une longue confrontation avec les « maîtres d'autrefois », il adopte un parti-pris pictural qui le mettra en marge du mouvement général de l'art, et l'éloignera de ses amis. Ébloui par l'art baroque et sa vigueur créatrice, il pense alors que ses amis de jeunesse se sont engagées dans une voie qui mènera à la mort de la peinture. Il croit en une « peinture parfaite » qui s'incarne dans le re-souvenir des leçons de Michel-Ange et de Rubens notamment. Son travail devient donc plus classique, il prône le retour au métier, en proposant de réfléchir sur les conditions a priori de toute forme d'art possible dans le respect des règles de la perspective et de l'anatomie, telles que pratiquées par les maîtres du XVIème et XVIIème siècle. Ne laissant que quelques oeuvres que l'on peut qualifier de monumentales, Anquetin s'avère prolifique par ses nombreuses études et esquisses, lui qui considérait que le dessin était « un moyen d'expression tout puissant », le fondement obligatoire de tous les arts plastiques. En travaillant volontairement à rebours de son époque, Louis Anquetin a rendu possible l'existence d'une figuration moderne originale. Par son obstination et sa passion de la peinture, il a en effet évité que ne soit totalement obturé le chemin de la grande tradition occidentale. On peut admirer ses oeuvres dans de nombreux et prestigieux musées comme le Musée d'Orsay ou Le Louvre à Paris, à San Francisco ou à Detroit, au Musée de l'Hermitage de Saint-Petersbourg, à la National Gallery et à la Tate de Londres, etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

      Boston Copeland and Day 1895 - 12mo. (iv), 76 pp. First edition. One of 50 copies printed in green ink on Japan vellum. Crane's second book, his first collection of poetry, and the first to be published under his name, is the subject of some bibliographical debate. Stallman cites broken type and an April 1896 advertisement in The Bookman to support his claim that this issue appeared on the heels of The Red Badge of Courage; Joe Kraus, in his bibliography of Copeland and Day, locates page proofs for this and the regular issue dated March, 1895. Spine shows some toning, paper spine label lightly soiled, small split to outer front hinge, else fine in cream paper covered boards. (Stallman 2b; Kraus 20a).

The Red Badge of Courage is considered one of the most influential works in American literature. The novel, a depiction of the cruelty of the American Civil War, features a young recruit who overcomes initial fears to become a hero on the battlefield. The book made Crane an international success. Although he was born after the war and had not at the time experienced battle firsthand, the novel is considered an example of American Naturalism.

        CAPTAIN ANTIFER

      1895 - With Illustrations. New York: R. F. Fenno & Company, n.d. [1895]. Original olive green cloth pictorially decorated in black and silver. First American Edition in cloth of this tale of buried treasure, described as follows in a contemporary review (cited in T&M):~Captain Antifer's father had befriended an Egyptian prisoner at Jaff [Jaffa], Kamylk Pasha, and many years after he received a mysterious document naming latitude 24 degrees 59 minutes north, and saying that the longitude would follow later. It never did; but Antifer succeeded in discovering it, and had a series of most exciting adventures in searching for the wealth which was to be found on the spot indicated.~Antifer's efforts to find the islet's longitude, complicated by treachery and demands of marriage, take him to the Gulf of Oman, the Gulf of Guinea, and even north of Norway.~After serialization in Boy's Own, Fenno published a wrappered version of this tale in June 1895, the first edition in the English language; both Fenno and, in England, Sampson Low, then published clothbound editions in November of that year -- precedence uncertain. This Fenno volume has a binding design very much like those of the American trade binding artist Margaret Armstrong, and is profusely illustrated.~This copy is in fine condition (Christmas 1895 inscription).

        Poems (Inscribed by the American publisher Fred Holland Day)

      T.Fisher Unwin and Copeland and Day, London and Boston 1895 - A charming book with the tissue guard protecting the illustrated title page. Bound in finely woven linen cloth and sumptuously gilded on the front and the rear boards, depicting a winged warrior standing on a writhing serpent with splendid Art Nouveau floral designs on either side of him. The panels are signed by the artist: "HGF" (H. Granville Fell) in a gilded square. The heavily gilded spine is darkened and frayed at the top and bottom of the spine ends. The top edges are gilded as well. Very clean and tight throughout. The front endpaper is lacking, and the half-title page is inscribed by Fred Holland Day: "To one who loves these better than their publisher (which is cryptical if not symbolical) FHD (monogram encircled) May 1904." The English issue consisted of 750 copies, and it is likely this issue had about the same, though the total number is not mentioned in Wade (#16). The Copeland and Day slug appears on the title page; it is also gilded at the bottom of the spine. Fred Holland Day (Boston, 1864 to 1933) was an American photographer and publisher. He was among the first in America to advocate that photography should be considered a fine art.Day spent much time among poor immigrant children in Boston, tutoring them in reading and mentoring them. One in particular, the 13-year-old Lebanese immigrant Kahlil Gibran, went on to fame as the author of The Prophet.Day co-founded and self-financed the publishing firm of Copeland and Day, which from 1893 through 1899 published about a hundred titles. The firm was influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement and William Morris's Kelmscott Press. The firm was the American publisher of Oscar Wilde's Salomé, illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley; The Yellow Book periodical, also illustrated by Beardsley; and The Black Riders and Other Lines by Stephen Crane.
