      1895. [EHON - FAIRY TALES] BARBATOU, P. CHOIX DE FABLES DE LA FONTAINE. 2 volumes in 1. Tokio: MDCCCXCIV. Imprimerie de Tsoukidji-Tokio. (Printer: Kimura Tokutaro^; First Series, printed September 20th, published September 30th; Second Series, printed October 10th, published October 20th, Meiji 27 [1894]. Large format plain paper book, bound with the original covers into a contemporary Western style half leather binding. The first volume is 20 X 30 cm, with 14 double page color woodcuts by Kano Tomonobu, Kajita Hanko, Kawanabe Kyo^sui, and Okakura Sho^so^ called for. The "deuxieme serie" is similarly bound, 20 x 30 cm, with 14 prints by the four previously listed artists, along with Eda Sadashiko. This work, with its French text and literary origins, may be placed in the mainstream of an emerging international style in Japan. Yet it may be still be seen as squarely in the tradition of the Japanese illustrated book. It shares many of the characteristics of the revival of Japanese picture book printing in general at the end of the 19th century: an emerging Nihonga style which was an amalgam of theme and technique from East and West, skilled printing, increasingly restrained coloration, etc.. An interesting document of East-West cultural and artistic accommodation, which gave rise to such hybrid vigor in world art. The bound-in covers and contents are perfect, the leather binding is worn. The two volumes, complete.

        The Bibelot (20 Volume Set Plus Index) A Reprint of Poetry and Prose for Book Lovers, Chosen in Part from Scarce Editions and Sources Not Generally Known

      Portland, ME: Thomas Bird Mosher. F/NONE. 1895. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 14, 20. 1st edition/1st printing. Rare set--this is the 20 volumes plus Index volume set (this is the Index covering all 20 volumes) published from 1895 through 1914, and sold by subscription only. NOT the much more common Wise reprint set later published all at once. All 1st editions/1st printings, published by Thomas Bird Mosher from 1895 through 1914. All books are 6-1/8" tall x 4-3/4" wide and varying thicknesses. They are bound in light blue paper covered boards with white spines with raised bands with red and black printing, and the outer and lower page edges are untrimmed. They have both the blue and regular white paper title pages. Each book has the original owner's small, neat name (a deceased Catholic priest) and is dated. Other than some uniform slight darkening to some of the spines, the books are as new--straight, clean & extremely tight (I believe never read). A remarkable and very rare set, all 1st printings and matched. Mosher published (and republished other publishers' works) many finely printed books, and his works are highly collectible. Note that if the name "Wise" is on the title or copyright page, or if a set is advertised as a limited edition, it is NOT this set of true 1st printings. .

        The Red Badge of Courage

      New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1895. Beige buckram with red and black lettering and decorative gilt around the letter "T" on the front cover. Clay-coated endpapers. Last few signatures are loose, but holding. The boards are edge-worn and soiled. Small amount of cloth loss at the tail of the spine, affecting the publisher's name. Book shop label at top of front pastedown. Previous owner name neatly scripted at top of blank page preceding the title page. 233 pages plus publisher's ads. This copy shows the year 1895 on both the title page and copyright page. Not a true first printing because of the following points of issue: Points of Issue: In the ads at the back of the book for the publisher's other titles, The Red Badge of Courage is listed as the first entry, thus not a first issue of the first printing in 1895. The first issue of the 1895 printing also featured an unbroken last line on page 225. On that page for this second issue, the word congratulated line breaks after the letter "u." Still a very scarce 1895 printing, a slight variation in the first print run. . First Edition, Second Issue. Hard Cover. Fair/No Jacket.

        Studien über Hysterie.

      Gr. 8°. 269 Seiten.Moderner roter Halbledereinband mit marmorierten Buchdeckeln. Rückbeschriftung in Goldprägung,Vorderdeckel (eingeschränkt) vorhanden, Rückendeckel fehlt. Mit zwei Bibliotheksstempeln (englisch und hebräisch), beide vom Israel Institute of Psychoanalysis, dessen Mitbegründer Eitingon war. Handschriftliche Widmung von Eitingon an seine Kommillitonin Anja Smeliansky. Sie wurde 1920 seine Kollegin an der Berliner Poliklinik und nach der Emigration 1933 war sie eine der Mitbegründerinnen des Palestine Institute for Psychoanalysis. Die Widmung: Tragisch ist : Wehrlosigkeit gegenüber den grossen Ereignissen des Lebens. Komisch ist: Wehrlosigkeit angesichts der kleinen Vorkommnisse. Die Wehrhaftigkeit des Arztes ist: Rat wissen. Mögen Sie die helfen will, Smeljanskaja in Ihrem Herzen immer Rat wissen M. Eitingon Zürich, 12 III. 07 "" Wir nehmen an, dass Eitingon ihr dieses Exemplar der "Studien" als Geschenk zur Promotion 1907 in der Burghölzli Klinik widmete. Eitingon war dort von 1906 bis 1908 Assistent. In dieser Zeit begann er seine Korrespondenz (erster Brief 6. XII. 1906) mit Freud. (vgl.: Sigmund Freud-Max Eitingon Briefwechsel 1906-1939, 2 Bände, Edition Diskord, 2004). Erstausgabe eines Werks, das als Beginn der Psychoanalyse angesehenwird. Es war Freud selbst, der der Meinung war, dass Breuer, nicht er, als wahrer Vater der Psychoanalyse gelten sollte. Vor allem aufgrund dessen Arbeit mit Bertha Pappenheim (Anna O). Die praktischen und theoretischen Schlussfolgerungen, die sie aus ihrer Zusammenarbeit zogen, wurden erstmals in dem Artikel "Vorläufige Mitteilung" im Jahr 1893, später dann in den "Studien" veröffentlicht. Die Veröffentlichung dieses Buches fiel zeitlich beinahe genau mit dem Ende ihrer gemeinsamen Arbeit zusammen und dem Ende ihrer Freundschaft. Breuer trieb mit dem Verfassen des theoretischen Kapitels der "Studien über Hysterie" eine Anzahl sehr wichtiger Konzepte voran. Eines von diesen, das seinerzeit von Freud zurückgewiesen wurde, wird heute als sehr wichtig angesehen: dass der hypnoide Zustand und die sich verändernden Niveaus des Bewusstseins eine sehr wichtige Rolle spielen im normalen und kranken mentalen Funktionieren. Die Bedeutung der zahlreichen Konzepte, die Freud und Breuer in diesem Werk zum ersten mal vorstellen, kann nicht überbewertet werden. Ein sehr bemerkenswertes, handbeschriebenes Exemplar. Selten gibt es Arbeiten von Freud mit Widmungen aus seinem engsten Mitarbeiterkreis (Geheimes Komitee).

        Interferenz-Erscheinungen bei Röntgenstrahlen. [with:] Eine quantitative Prüfung der Theorie für den Interferenz-Erscheinungen bei Röntgenstrahlen.München: F. Straub for the Verlag der Königlich Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1912.

      Very rare first edition, offprint issue, of Laue's Nobel Prize-winning report of "one of the most beautiful discoveries in physics" (Einstein). X-rays had been in wide use since their discovery in 1895 but their exact nature as electromagnetic waves of short wavelength was first elucidated by Laue and his collaborators in the present papers. PMM 406a; Norman 1283.<br/><br/> Laue (1879-1960) had moved in 1909 from Berlin (where he was Planck's assistant) to Ludwig Maximillians University in Münich, where he was Arnold Sommerfeld's Privatdozent. In the spring of 1912 he was asked by Sommerfeld's doctoral student Paul Ewald a question about the arrangement of atoms in a crystal. In attempting to answer this question "Laue had the crucial idea of sending X-rays through crystals. At this time scientists were very far from having proven the supposition that the radiation that Roentgen had discovered in 1895 actually consisted of very short electromagnetic waves. Similarly, the physical composition of crystals was in dispute, although it was frequently stated that a regular structure of atoms was the characteristic property of crystals. Laue argued that if these suppositions were correct, then the behavior of X-radiation upon penetrating a crystal should be approximately the same as that of light upon striking a diffraction grating" (DSB), an instrument used for measuring the wavelength of light, inapplicable to X-rays because their wavelength is too short. Sommerfeld was initially skeptical but Laue persisted, enlisting the help of Sommerfeld's experimental assistant Walter Friedrich (b. 1883) in his spare time as well as that of the doctoral student Paul Knipping. On April 12, 1912, Friedrich and Knipping succeeded in producing a regular pattern of dark spots on a photographic plate placed behind a copper sulphate cyrstal which had been bombarded with X-rays. <br/><br/> The first published account of these experiments (offered here) consisted of two parts: <i>Interferenz-Erscheinungen bei Rntgenstrahlen</i>," by all three authors, giving an account of their experimental results, and including the five famous collotype plates (reproductions of the original photographic plates), showing the X-ray diffraction spectra of different substances (now referred to as 'Laue diagrams'); and <i>Eine quantitative Prüfung der Theorie für die Interferenz-Erscheinungen bei Röntgenstrahlen</i>, by Laue alone, which gave a theoretical explanation of the diagrams. The two papers were reprinted the following year in <i>Annalen der Physik</i> (4 Folge, Bd. 41, pp. 971-988 & 989-1002). <br/><br/> "The awarding of the Nobel Prize in physics for 1914 to Laue indicated the significance of the discovery that Albert Einstein called 'one of the most beautiful in physics.' Subsequently it was possible to investigate X-radiation itself by means of wavelength determinations as well as to study the structure of the irradiated material. In the truest sense of the word scientists began to cast light on the structure of matter" (DSB). The following year the Prize was granted to the father and son team W. H. and W. L. Bragg for their exploration of crystal structure using X-rays.. Offprint from the Sitzungsberichte der Königlich Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften Mathematisch-physikalische Klasse (1912). Large 12mo (220 x 144), pp 303-322 & 363-373, with three line block diagrams in text and five collotype plates. Stapled in original printed green wrappers, a very fine copy.

      London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co New York: Macmillan & Co London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co New York: Macmillan & Co,. 1895. 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.

Copy number 25 of twenty-five copies only, printed at the Chiswick Press, with a manuscript statement of limitation in Johnson&#39;s hand. When the trade edition was prepared, the first and last gatherings were revised and reset, the initial capitals were altered, and the whole reprinted. Hence, the first twenty-five copies constitute the only true first edition. This was the author&#39;s own copy, signed and dated ("London: 1895.") and with a six line invocation to six Saints, in Latin, in his hand, on the front endsheet. Additionally, Johnson has made a total of sixteen manuscript alterations or insertions on twelve pages in the text. A careful collation with the second (i.e. first trade edition) reveals that only one of these corrections, that in the epigram on page [vi], was incorporated when the text was reset and reprinted. Several are of a substantive nature, including the insertion of a new line on page 103. This is the major collection of one of the most important of the poets of the 1890s, and due to his early death in 1902, manuscript material of consequence by him is uncommon. This is a textually important association copy of the first order. HAYWARD 304 (the second edition alone exhibited).

        Suicide's Grave Being The Private Memoirs & Confessions Of A Justified Sinner Written By Himself: With A Detail Of Curious Traditional Facts & Other Evidence By The Editor [ORIGINAL HARD BACK DATED 1895]

      J Shiells & Co, London, 1895. Reprint. Binding: Hardcover. Book Condition: Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. 'Originally published anonymously in 1824 and in 1828, either reprinted, or more probably reissued with a cancel title page, as The Suicide's Grave, this time bearing the author's name. It has also been printed in the collected editions of Hogg's works, as The Confessions Of A Fanatic, but in more than one of these in a very imperfect form. The text here followed is that of the original edition. Mr Andrew Lang and some others incline to the opinion that the book was not wholly written by Hogg, but that J. G. Lockhart had some part in its production; for this opinion, however, there is no documentary support. ' Recognized as one of the outstanding novels of the Romantic era, and Hogg's masterpiece. Part historical novel, part Gothic, part satire. Book - in Good blue boards with gilt lettering - light marking to the boards and slight bumping and rubbing to the extreme corners and extreme ends of the spine, slight sunning to the spine but the lettering and decoration remains bright. Contents, front and rear end paper heavily browned, some cracking to the rear hinge but still tight, slight spotting to the other end papers, title and introductory pages and extreme page edges otherwise clean, bright and tightly bound. Scarce. Size: 7.5 inches tall by 5 inches. 266 rough cut pages. Complete with facsimile letter opposite page 249. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 251-750 grams.

        Archive of William Henry Cabell Family Papers

      (1801-1895). An archive of holograph letters, manuscripts, photographs, and related material from the family of William Henry Cabell, Governor of Virginia from 1805 to 1808. The collection includes Autograph Letters Signed by two Founding Fathers: Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe, along with letters by other outstanding Virginia statesmen. The 1807 Jefferson Autograph Letter Signed, sent when he was President and Cabell was Governor, bears Jefferson's additional Signature above the address ("Free. Th. Jefferson Pr. US.") authorizing free franking postal delivery. Written by Jefferson in the third person, as was his custom for this type of formal correspondence, Jefferson had enclosed "a letter on the subject of Col. Larkin Smith," (not present) and authorizes Cabell "to put the letter under his cover & ask the favor of his superscribing the proper post office."The 1808 Monroe Autograph Letter Signed, which includes the original hand-addressed envelope, was sent to Cabell when Monroe had returned to Virginia after serving six years as U.S. Minister to Great Britain. He warmly thanks Cabell for his "... good opinion on my publick conduct in the various & important trusts to which I have been appointed ... you afford a very strong proof of your devotion to principle & friendship for me. In returning to my country after so long an absence from it, during which, I was engaged in the discharge of the most intensive, complicated and difficult duties, I have experienc'd the greatest possible consolation, from the reception which has been given me by my fellow citizens."Also of importance is a 141-page genealogy of the Cabell family, likely compiled by Edward Carrington Cabell in the latter part of the 19th Century. In total the archive contains 29 Autograph Letters Signed, the manuscript genealogy, five miscellaneous documents, and 19 photographs. The genealogy presents a detailed account of the Cabell family beginning with Dr. William Cabell, who came to Virginia in the early 18th Century. It includes transcribed reminiscences, funeral orations, and related biographical information, along with some tipped-in contemporary newspaper obituaries. Among the photographs are many fine carte-de-visite portraits and silver gelatin prints of Cabell family members.Other important letters include two retained copies from William Henry Cabell to Thomas Jefferson (when they were Governor and President, respectively), an 1801 letter from J.E.B. Gilmer to U.S. Attorney General William Wirt relating to The College of William & Mary, an 1820 letter to W.H. Cabell from Thomas Jefferson Randolph, an 1821 letter to Cabell from Judge St. George Tucker, and nine other letters to Cabell. Also from this period are contemporary autograph extracts of two 1821 letters from Joseph Carrington Cabell to Thomas Jefferson relating to the founding of the University of Virginia.Among the later letters, spanning the years 1841-1895, is an 1848 letter from John P. Kennedy relating to his biography of William Wirt, and two letters from Fitzhugh Lee to John Grattan Cabell, one about a memorial for General J.E.B. Stuart.A fascinating collection of primary source material documenting one of Virginia's most important families and other equally influential contemporary Virginians, featuring letters from two of America's Founding Fathers. .

        Our Darlings' Surprise Pictures

      1895. first edition. A Very Fine Ernest Nister Transformation Book [TRANSFORMATION BOOK] [WEATHERLY, Fred E.]. Our Darlings' Surprise Pictures. [A Novel Panorama Picture Book]. London: Ernest Nister [n.d, ca. 1895]. Eight color transformation pictures with verses by Fred E. Weatherly. Black and white illustrations throughout. Small folio (12 1/2 x 9 7/8 inches; 317 x 250 mm.). Original color glazed pictorial boards, original red cloth backstrip, original blue-green floral endpapers. A very fine copy with the corners of the unmarked glazed boards nearly as sharp as on the day of publication.Over the past forty-five years I have handled many, many Transformation books but I have never had a copy of this title -DJB."Another of the great makers of movable books was also a German - Ernest Nister, many of whose productions between 1891 to 1900 are regarded as among the most beautiful achievements of the entire genre&#133; Ernest Nister's major contribution to the field was a large number of 'dissolving' picture books - developing further the earlier, rather rudimentary items produced by Dean - in which an illustration changed into a completely different scene at the pull of a tab. The effect was achieved through the pictures being printed on slats which slid over each other&#133; One of Nister's busiest writers was a man named Frederic Edward Weatherly, (1848-1929), who, though he may not have been the most accomplished of poets, knew how to write verse that held the attention of children - a skill that he possibly developed reading to his own three children. Before turning to writing Weatherly had been a barrister, but he abandoned the law in favour of composing songs and verse, and during his life produced over thirty books for children."

        Prairie Chickens

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1895-1896. Chromolithograph. In good condition. Sheet size: 12 3/4 x 20 inches. A stunning hunting print from one of America's most celebrated sporting artists. Arthur Burdett Frost (1851-1928) is remembered as one of America's best-loved sporting artists. His evocative hunting and shooting prints capture the drama of the sport and provide an invaluable visual record of rural America. Frost was an incredibly successful artist, he illustrated more than ninety books and produced thousands of illustrations for Harper's Weekly, Scribner's and Life magazines. Although born in Philadelphia, he spent the majority of his working career in New Jersey where he produced some of his most noted work. Frost's most desirable and rarest prints are the twelve chromolithographs from the portfolio entitled Shooting Pictures, depicting various shooting scenes from upland shooting to waterfowling. The portfolio, with each image printed on a separate sheet and tipped onto a card backing board, was published by Charles Scribner's Sons in 1895. This dramatic image is a wonderful example from this famous series and demonstrates why Frost is considered one of America's most celebrated sporting artists. Cf. Henry M. Reed The A.B.

Illustrated title page, viii, 88 pp. text, 16 pp. publisher&#39;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 Rock Biographer 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 &#39;Indian&#39; 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&#39;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 &#39;The Mother&#39;s Magazine&#39;; and an incurable romantic who never married.

Folio (15 1/8 x 11 5/8 in; 384 x 296 mm). x, 236 pp. Thirteen uncolored electro-engravings with tissue guards, including frontispiece, twelve full-page black and white plates, 125 black and white text illustrations. Bound c. 1949 in half crimson morocco over pale red cloth ruled in gilt. Spine with six raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments. Marbled endpaperes, top edge gilt, others uncut. Engravings exhibit light spotting to margins. A very small rub spot to lower board. Otherwise a fine copy. Housed in a cloth slipcase.John Guille Millais (1865-1931) was an English artist, naturalist, gardener and travel writer who specialized in wildlife and flower portraiture. He traveled extensively around the world in the late Victorian period detailing wildlife often for the first time. His was clearly a wanderlust based on a desire to see, record and paint the natural world. To this end he traveled widely in Europe, Africa and North America. A Breath of the Veldt , based upon his trip to South Africa, was his second of seventeen books on his travels and the wildlife of the places he journeyed through.It is quite likely that Millias influenced Rider Haggard's Alan Quarterman novels. Millais was was the friend and biographer of F.C. Selous, the big-game hunter that Haggard based Quartermain upon, and his descriptions of the Veldt, in which Haggard set so much of his fiction, were most certainly read and referenced by Haggard."Never before, or elsewhere, have the winged and furred creatures of the wild lived in their lithe beauty and fantastic grace as in these delicate drawings" (The Telegraph, contemporary comment cited by Mendelssohn) Mendelssohn, Sidney.

No. 1 January , 1896, #136 The newsletter was published by Fr. Jean-Marie Raphael LeJeune out of the back room of a church on the Kamloops reserve between May 1891 and Dec. 1905. Intended primarily for the local Aboriginal audience, most of the content was written in Chinook jargon with some translation into English and French. At its peak, The Wawa had a circulation of about 2,000 copies and was read as far away as France. An important 19th century British Columbia newsletter, the Kamloops Wawa. The Kamloops Wawa was a multi-lingual publication written in English, French and Chinook Jargon. Chinook jargon, a trade language (or pidgin) was once spoken by an estimated 100,000 people along the west coast from Oregon to Alaska. With more than 100 Aboriginal languages spoken in the area, it was one of the most diverse linguistic regions in the world. Chinook jargon evolved as a way of bridging the communication gap created by this diversity. Derived from various Aboriginal languages, and later English and French, this jargon was widely spoken by natives, traders, and settlers, but could not be easily translated to written form. As a means of bringing literacy to Aboriginal people, Catholic missionaries in the late 1800s developed a phonetic shorthand that could accurately represent the jargon. Eventually, most of the native population learned to speak English, and Chinook jargon fell into disuse. The language may have disappeared altogether had the written legacy of the Catholic missionaries not remained. The Wawa, which is Chinook jargon for &#39;chat&#39;, is an important record of that legacy.
