        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… 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… 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." (Peter Haining. Movable Books - An Illustrated History, p.45).

        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. Frost Book (1993) p. 90 (illustration) and p.158

        The White Wampum - Tekahionwake

      London: John Lane, 1895. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. Large 12mo - 7 " x 5". Publisher's decorated brown cloth covered boards with tomahawk stamped in black decoration and the name Tekahion-wake + gold letters on spine (bright). The Condition is very good+, small nicks on corners of cover Ragged edged paper. Illustrated title page, viii, 88 pp. text, 16 pp. publisher'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 'Indian' 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'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 'The Mother's Magazine'; and an incurable romantic who never married.

        Breath from the Veldt, A

      1895. Into AfricaWith "the Winged and Furred Creatures of the Wild"Beautifully BoundMILLAIS, John Guille. A Breath from the Veldt. With Illustrations by the Author, and Frontispiece by Sir J.E. Millais, R.A.London: Henry Sotheran, 1895. First trade edition. 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. South African Bibliography; being the Catalogue Raisonné of the Mendelssohn Library of Works relating to South Africa... II, p. 13.

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 'chat', is an important record of that legacy.

        The Pobratim. A Slav Novel.

      London. H.S. Nichols. 1895. First Edition.. Little is known about the author of this work. An 1894 newspaper reports a fire which destroyed the valuable library of a Professor Jones the orientalist, who lived in Trieste, and this novels dedication page states: To His Higness Prince Nicholas of Montenegro this book is humbly dedicated. P. Jones. Trieste, 17th June, 1895. Prof. Jones appears to have been something of an expert about the local customs and beliefs of the region where the novel takes place,set mainly around Budva and the Montenegro-Hungary area of the Balkans in the 1880s. Although written as a work of fiction this work is actually a veritable storehouse of Slav customs, legends and superstitions. A story based around the lives of two young men Milenko and Uros, blood brothers ( pobratim), a tale of adventure, love and tales of the supernatural including a vampire, a lot closer to the traditional vampire than the fantasy figure of Bram Stoker's Dracula published later than this work. Chapter titles include : The bond of friendship, The bullin-most, The hayduk, Murder, Prince Mathias, Manslaghter, Starigrad, The karvarina, The vampire, The '' giustizia di dio''. All complete with half title, title page, dedication, contents pages, and 398 pages of text.

They have a place in French history, these men; their trade, which by the beginning of the seventeenth century had learnt to cluster round the Pont Neuf, has traveled through vicissitudes peculiar to itself, and survived revolutions destructive of interests vaster than its own; these humble vendors of old books have been proclaimed as nuisances, obstructing the highway, denounced as receivers of stolen goods, and informed against as cheapeners of the well-housed stock of the authorized booksellers who kept shop, and paid rent, rates, and taxes.

Uzanne makes us acquainted with the precise terms of royal edicts and decrees leveled at the heads of these open-air traders, who, however,as was indeed befitting, seem usually to have had friends at Court, who managed to prevent such an administration of the law as must have exterminated the whole tribe." ; Selected chapters: The Stall-keepers of To-day.

        The Arabella and Araminta Stories

      [Printed by John Wilson and Son, Cambridge, for] The Yellow Hair Library, Boston, Copeland and Day,, 1895. By Gertrude Smith with an Introduction by Mary E Wilkins Embellished with XV Illustrative designs by Ethel Reed and Explanatory Notes by the Author of the book. Folio (439 × 298 mm). Publisher's floral cloth-covered boards, blue morocco backstrip lettered and dated in gilt, vellum tips. Housed in a cloth slipcase. Front and back endpapers signed by Smith, Reed and Wilkins, pastedowns each with an extra original design (front, a flower; back, a butterfly) by Reed. The endpapers duplicated at the front on bright pink and green paper and at the back on yellow paper. Four titles on four sheets, each slightly different, with printer's devices printed in various colours. 15 plates each printed on six different kinds of paper. Duplicate endpapers at the front slightly creased, backstrip a little rubbed, unobtrusive repair to back joint, a very good copy of this exceptionally rare book. First edition, limited edition large paper copy, one of fifteen copies only printed on Royal Japanese paper, containing original extra illustrations on the endpapers by Ethel Reed, in a large-paper folio format much larger than the trade issue (which was done in small quarto), with four different states of the title and the plates printed on six different kinds of paper, signed by all the participants on front and back endpapers, bound in specially imported Javanese muslin. One of the rarest of the Parley to Penrod titles, this book in its deluxe format is the masterpiece of the book artist Ethel Reed (1874–1910?), who for a brief period was the star designer of books and posters in the Boston Arts and Crafts movement. Her unfettered artistic exuberance, clearly a reflection of her youthful enthusiasm and high spirits, is extraordinarily appealing. Her style reflects Walter Crane's visual influence (Crane had made a visit to Boston in 1891–92) as well as the decadent images of Aubrey Beardsley. The limited edition is naturally rare and desirable: the last copy at auction was the Grolier Club–Epstein copy (described as "corner worn, hinges reinforced") which fetched $26,400 (Swann, Apr 30, 1992, lot 421). Before that the Bradley Martin copy made $18,400 (Sotheby's New York, Jan 30, 1990, lot 2466). "Ethel Reed was born and raised in Newburyport, Massachusetts, where she received her first training in art from Laura Coombs Hills. She later studied at the Cowles School in Boston, where Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue was one of her teachers. While a student, she began designing posters and book decorations in a distinctive Art Nouveau style, first for the Boston Herald and later for the small literary presses Copeland & Day and Lamson, Wolfe and Co. For a short period in 1895 and 1896, she was the most celebrated of the Boston book artists. Her brilliant though eccentric work may be an example of the sort of 'specious originality' which the Society of Arts and Crafts sought to discourage. She left for Europe in May 1896 and subsequently contributed a few designs to the British publisher John Lane. She died sometime before 1925, when Richard Le Gallienne, in The Romantic Nineties, recalled 'the noble silent beauty of Ethel Reed, whose early death robbed the world of a great decorative artist'" (Inspiring Reform: Boston's Arts and Crafts Movement, Davis Museum, 1997). "When William Sharp and Maurice Maeterlinck and Aubrey Beardsley see this book they will shed tears of great joy, for their art principles have been applied at last to the manufacture of literature and pictures for children" (Artists of the Book in Boston 1890–1901 p. 27).

        AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT, SIGNED ("M.T.), INCORPORATING AN AUTOGRAPH NOTE, SIGNED

      Quarry Farm, Elmira, NY. 2 July 1895.. One page, in ink, on quarto front panel of a large linen-lined envelope. Marginal pencil note crossed through, several ink squiggles in blank areas symptomatic of a struggle with an unreliable pen, otherwise very good. A manuscript memento of a famous artifact, being Clemens' fourteen line rough draft verse (signed "M.T."), written in preparation for his inscribing the verse on three stones for presentation to Mrs. Thomas K. Beecher, wife of Reverend Beecher who officiated at the wedding of Clemens and Livy Langdon in 1870. An account of the undertaking appears in the October 1895 number of MUNSEY'S, and in brief, a sort of wager grew out of a friendly debate between Clemens and Mrs. Beecher about the immortality of the soul. Mrs. Beecher concluded by asking Clemens: "If you meet me in heaven a million years from now, will you confess yourself wrong?" And when Clemens assented, she insisted a record of his agreement be rendered in stone for future generations. The manuscript in hand is Clemens' draft of what was placed on three sections cut from a stone Mrs. Beecher picked up from the Susquehanna river bed near Charles Beecher's summer home near Wyalusing, PA. The actual stones, known as the "wager stones," are now preserved in the Twain Archive at Elmira College. Clemens' poem (incorporating his alterations) reads: "If you prove right & I prove wrong [/] A million years from now, [/] In language plain & frank & strong [/] My error I'll avow [/] To your dear mocking face. [/] If I prove right, by God his grace [/] Full sorry I shall be, [/] For in that solitude no trace [/] There'll be of you & me [/] Nor of our vanished race. [/] A million years, O patient stone, [/] You've waited for this message: [/] Deliver it a million hence [Survivor pay expressage.] M.T." Appended to the manuscript is an autograph note from Clemens, 2 July 1895, to Livy Clemens' friend, Clara Spaulding: "Dear Clara: Livy says it is this rough old original draft that you preferred. I didn't understand & I beg pardon. This looks too disreputable. My purpose was to have a nice trim comely copy made for you. Yours ever, SL Clemens."

Autograph Quote Signed, "Man & Woman a / Simultaneous Creation / Genesis I. 27-28 / Elizabeth Cady Stanton / Nov 12th 1815 - 1895". 3 1/2 x 4 1/2"; five lines, on card stock, attractively matted and framed to finished size of 7 1/2 x 9 3/4" with engraving of Mrs. Stanton (engraving from HISTORY OF WOMAN SUFFRAGE, Vol. I. which Mrs. Stanton coauthored with Susan B. Anthony and Matilda Joslyn Gage) after photograph by Mosher, engraved by Bullro.& Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) spent her entire life endeavoring to make life better for others. She helped organize the first conference (in the world!) on women&#39;s rights, the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention. She drafted their "Declaration of Sentiments" calling for woman suffrage. With Susan B. Anthony, she led the woman suffrage movement from its inception through the last years of her life. In the last third of her life, however, she became even more radical. On her 80th birthday, a celebration organized by Anthony and attended by over 6,000 supporters was held at the Metropolitan Opera House. Stanton used this occasion to deliver what was to be her most radical speech, in which she asserted that spheres of men and women differed only according to their capacity as individuals. Further, she demanded an equal place in the church, in all business matters, discipline and formulations of creeds. This quote is from that speech and is dated the day of the speech. It was in 1895 that Mrs. Stanton published THE WOMAN&#39;S BIBLE in which she further challenged organized religion by including feminist interpretations and rewrites of many passages she deemed detrimental to women. This quote is completely consistent with the main concern of Mrs. Stanton&#39;s life: advocacy of the overturn of any edict of church or state, which limited woman&#39;s sphere. NAW III, pp. 342-7.

        Edle Nacktheit in China

       Heinz Von Perckhammer was born in 1895 in Germany. He traveled to Southern China and Macao in the late 1920s where he photographed women from the Macao brothels. The soft nudes were the antithesis of the women's real surroundings. After he returned to Germany, he published some of these studies in the French magazine, Voila (No.76, 1932). He also published "Edle nacktheit in China" in 1928. He also photographed several other nudes for the portfolio, "Das Deutsche Aktwerk", which was published in several versions by Bruno Schultz Verla from 1938-1940. On a more mundane business level, Von Perckhammer took many of the images in the 1933 book, Wir und das Auto, and his work appears on many German postcards of the 1930s-40s period. Von Perckhammer was known for his fine nudes, his portrait studies and publicity stills. He died in 1965. Printed examples of his work from his later portfolio are in the George Eastman House. He is listed in its database, as well as in Auer & Auer. Cover partially damaged (as can be seen in the pictures). Missing 2 double-pages: title and copyrightthird page of introductory text (page 7) and following decorative Chinese ornamnent All 31 photographic plates present and in great condition. No holes torn out (the book was originally bound Chinese style with ribbon). Please see photographs (photographs of all pages are available here: http://www.skolnik.info/Edle%20Nacktheit%20in%20China/ ).

        THE BODY-SNATCHER

      1895. hardcover. <center><b>Stevenson&#39;s grisly tale about an anatomist and his need for cadavres</b></center> Stevenson, Robert Louis. THE BODY-SNATCHER. Illustrated. New York: The Merriam Company, n.d. [1895]. 3 pp undated ads. Original violet cloth decorated in dark violet. <p>First Edition, issued as the second volume in Merriam&#39;s "Violet Series." This is Stevenson&#39;s famous tale about the anatomist "K---" and his need for cadavres (based undoubtedly upon the career of Robert Knox, 1793-1862). RLS actually wrote this tale in mid-1881, to be part of a collection of supernatural tales which he referred to as "creepers"; he never completed the project, but a few of the tales remain. Ironically this grisly tale&#39;s first appearance was in the Pall Mall Gazette&#39;s 1884 Christmas Extra (substituted at the last moment for a briefer RLS tale, in order to fulfill a commitment of sufficient length). It is equally ironic that such a story would first appear in book form in this cute little violet volume decorated with flowers.</p> <p>This is an attractive, nearly fine copy, unusually free of soil or wear (the lettering on the spine is a little faded as always, and there are small tape-stains on the endpapers); there is <i>no</i> bubbling of the cloth, which is atypical for this book. condition.

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&#39;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&#39; 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. .
