        THE ISLAND OF DR MOREAU

      Heinemann - Tan cloth pictorial boards,bricht and clean.Sine lightly darkened,spine cover fragile top and bottom for 1cm,cloth split hinge 4cm top rear and bottom front.Block is tight and clean,tissue guarded frontis,no names or stamps,interior hinge paper weak or cracked,all cloth hinges fine and tight.Generally a lovely copy of this exceptionally rare bookPages of publishers advertisements at rear,24 pages. Wells's evolutionary fantasy about a shipwrecked naturalist who becomes involved in an experiment to 'humanize' animals by surgery, producing in the end only quasi-human monsters. This disturbing, moody tale, the germ of which Wells found in "The Saturday Review" of January 1895, is rather apropos in these days of genetic code mapping and cloned animals. It was filmed memorably in 1932 as "The Island of Lost Souls", with Charles Laughton as a leering, whip-cracking Moreau who uses vivisection and other cruel surgery in the House of Pain to transform his subjects. The 1977 remake updates some things, using genetic engineering to create hybrids, but can't hold a candle to the original film, or to the even more original book.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Four page Autograph Letter Signed from D.P. Brown of St. Onge, South Dakota to his cousin James Breckenridge of Stewartsville, Missouri, dated 25 January 1895 on stationery of Adoniram J. Plowman, Attorney at Law of Deadwood. Old folds from mailing, else near fine. Brown relates that he is "about 12 miles from Deadwood & 30 miles from Indian Reservation" and (his idiosyncratic spelling retained) "I am still alive and am married and living in the Black hills on a Horse Ranch of Judge Plowmans. I got my Rib broken last Saturday was leading a Horse to water and he started to run and I stayed with him to long." He relates that after traveling through Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico, and Kansas, he is: "getting 300 a year and am at no expense but for clothing. Think I shall strike for more money or quit." A relatively interesting cowboy letter. The recipient was likely a member of the prominent Breckenridge family (the letter mentions his family in Kentucky). Plowman was a noted Deadwood judge. .

        The American Commonwealth

      New York: Macmillan and Company 1895 - Two volumes (complete), 8vo., blue cloth lettered in gilt; newspaper reviews affixed to volume one; tender hinges; lightly soiled. Third and finest edition, completely revised, with four new chapters. Howes B-906. A presentation copy, inscribed: "Signed at the request of Mr. Dewitt Miller of Philadelphia by James Bryce, London, April 9th, 1895," on the half-title page; with Miller's notes on the back pastedown. [together with] tipped-in autograph letter signed by Bryce to Miller. London: July 10, 1902. Single leaf, 8vo., folded to form four pages, House of Commons letterhead; unpublished ---- Most important in the third edition of Bryce's masterpiece were new chapters on "The South since the War" and "Present and Future of the Negro." Regarding the controversial chapter on Tammany which gave rise to a lawsuit for its suppression, Bryce informed lyceum lecturer Dewitt Miller (1857-1911), a fellow member of the London Bibliographic Society: "The first edition was not suppressed. It was quickly sold out. Not a single copy was withdrawn. The chapter on which the action by A. O. Hall was founded, was omitted from the second edition because the litigation was pending. It was a mere piece of blackmailing. I wrote the chapter on Tammany myself. I had always intended to do so, but had not had time to do it when the second edition was being prepared" ---- Viscount James Bryce, historian, jurist, and politician, first visited the United States in 1870. His second tour, 11 years later, was followed by a third in 1883. On his return to Great Britain, Bryce began writing "The American Commonwealth," the first edition of which was published in 1888. His aim was to investigate "not only the party system, but the ideas, temper, [and] habits of the sovereign people." Bryce's study of nineteenth-century public opinion blazed a trail which, like Alexis de Tocqueville's "Democracy in America," has been continually quoted as a standard authority on the workings of the "American system."

        THE STOLEN BACILLUS and Other Incidents

      1895 - London: Methuen & Co., 1895. 32 pp ads dated September 1895. Original dark blue cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition of this collection of fifteen tales, along a science fiction vein -- Wells's first book of short stories and his second volume of science fiction (after THE TIME MACHINE). The title tale concerns an anarchist who steals what he thinks is cholera bacteria with which to infect all of London -- when in fact the bacteria only turn victims bright blue (a "marvellous twist from the macabre to the ludicrous" - Smith). Also included are "The Flowering of the Strange Orchid," "The Lord of the Dynamos" and "The Flying Man."~This is a handsome copy, virtually without wear -- fine except that the spine gilt is slightly less bright than the front cover gilt. In our experience Wells's less-known science fiction volumes, such as this one and THE PLATTNER STORY, are considerably scarcer than his better-known ones such as THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, THE INVISIBLE MAN and THE TIME MACHINE. Hammond C1; Wells Soc. 6; Currey p. 523. Housed in a custom clamshell case. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Collection of 13 original photographs, mostly at 'Morwenstowe' station at Wallaga Lake, including a group portrait of Aboriginal schoolchildren

      circa, 1895. Collection of 13 albumen prints measuring approximately 110 x 155 mm, each with early cursive annotations to verso; some prints a little faded yet very good condition overall. Collection of 13 original photographs documenting daily life at Wallaga Lake during the later nineteenth-century, including a significant group portrait including Aboriginal children at Corunna school circa 1895. Four Aboriginal children are included in the portrait of 20 schoolchildren, and an inscribed note to the reverse of the photograph identifies this as the school at Corunna (located some 10 kilometres north of Wallaga Aboriginal reserve). The reserve was created in 1891 and became home to over 90 Yuin Aboriginal persons. The children in the group portrait were under the care and instruction of Sister Ivy, who is identified by name in a separate portrait photograph included in this collection. Several other photographs detail the homestead 'Morwenstowe' located upon the shores of Wallaga Lake, showing the clearing and improvement of the farm as well as boating, coaching and other leisure activities. Three photographs in the collection depict high country pastures around Tumut; the remainder concern the Wallaga Lake region and hinterlands.
