        Grèce.

      Athens: Rhomaides frères, , c. 1895. Album of Forty-seven Large Original Collotype Photographs Including Five Panoramas of Southern Greece. Landscape quarto (260 x 355 mm). Contemporary brown hard-grain morocco over bevelled boards by Albert Hautecoeur of Paris, spine with five raised bands, single-line blind paneling on sides, lettered "Grèce" in gilt on front cover, gilt edges, richly gilt turn-ins, gilt-patterned burgundy endpapers. 47 original collotype prints: 5 folding panoramic views (2 in 3 parts, 212 x 780-880 mm; 3 in 2 parts, 212 x 560 mm), 38 other views (218 x 282 mm), 3 of classical statuary, 1 of a classical relief (285 x 210 mm), a few with captions or numbers signed in negative by the studio or printed on versos, all mounted (recto and verso) on thick card stock, white cloth hinges. The panoramic views show Piraeus, the Archeological Site of Olympia (both in 3 parts), Athens, Nafplio ("Neuplie") and Delphi. Captioned photographs: Panorama du Pirée; Panorama d'Athènes; Panorama d'Olympie en 3 pièces; Panorama de Neuplie; Vue générale de l'Ancienne Delphes. Hautecoeur's ticket overstamped with a "smiley face" (repeated at top fore-corner of following leaf), a few scrapes and light abrasions to binding, light bump to one corner, touch of foxing to periphery of mounts, but overall very good, the prints in excellent condition. A very fine album of superior photographs from the renowned studio of the Rhomaides Brothers - presented here in an elegantly sober binding by Albert Hautecoeur, one of the premier Parisian print and photograph dealers – including some fine panoramic views and scenes at the great archaeological sites of Athens and Mycenae. Twenty images show the area in and around the Acropolis, including several views of the Parthenon, two of the Odeon of Herodes Atticus (one showing the façade, the other the amphitheatre), the Temple of Zeus, the Tower of Winds, the Arch of Hadrian, the choragic Monument of Lysicrates, row of four Ionic columns in the Roman Agora, and the Bull of Dionysios of Kollitos (in situ on the "street of tombs", the original now housed in the Kerameikos Archaeological Museum). Another view looks across the speaker's platform on the rock-cut scarp of the Pnyx – the "cradle of Athenian demoracy", where early democratic assemblies were held; another shows one of the slopes of the Acropolis, the raking light making clearly visible the niches where worshippers would place votive offerings to the gods: "The slopes, caves and plateaus of the Acropolis hill were the settings in which gods, heroes and nymphs were worshipped" (The Acropolis Museum online). A further five scenes show sights in Athens, including two views of the city and three of contemporary buildings: the Greek Parliament, the current National Historical Museum (founded 1882, formerly the Old Parliament House) and the Hotel Grande Bretagne (originally built in 1842 as a private house, bought and restored as a hotel in 1874). Also featured are landscapes taken at Nafplio (on the Argolic Gulf, northeast Peloponnese), Delphi, and Corinth (the Temple of Apollo and a fine view of a boat traversing the Corinth Canal, completed in 1893); these are followed by five images of ancient ruins at Mycenae, including the famous Lion Gate. Heinrich Schliemann had begun excavation here in August 1876, albeit initially without the permission of the Archaeological Society of Athens, uncovering ancient shaft graves and the spectacular Mask of Agamemnon. His work was recorded extensively with photographs and plans, the principal photographers being the Rhomaides Brothers, who "exhibited an album of these images at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1878" (The Getty Research Institute online); the National Library of Scotland holds a number of Rhomaides albums of Mycenae. Two, apparently featureless, views may show the burial mound and battlefield at Marathon. The album opens with a quite stunning panorama of Piraeus, with ships in the harbour and two warships (one flying a signal flag: a saltire, meaning "my vessel is stopped and making no way through the water"). The photographs of ancient Greek statuary that close the album include the Varvakeion Athena (a Roman marble copy of the lost Athena Parthenos), Nike of Paionios (a reconstruction of the original), and Hermes and the Infant Dionysus (attributed to Praxiteles and discovered by German archaeologist Ernst Curtius in 1877); the frieze depicts Nike adjusting her sandal. "By 1875 photography in Greece was not restricted within the boundaries of the country's capital. Photographic studios were also found on islands such as Syros and Crete and in other cities such as Corinth and Patra. The Rhomaides Brothers (Konstantinos and Aristotelis), originally from Bucharest, opened a studio in Ioannina and subsequently settled in Patras. In 1875 they undertook the photographing of the excavations at Olympia carried out by the German Archaeological Institute [under Ernst Curtius, published as Die Ausgrabungen zu Olympia (1876-1881)]. This collaboration led to their specializing in Greek archaeological photography, which is why they were employed almost exclusively by most of the archaeological schools operating in Greece at that time. They established themselves in Athens in 1876 while retaining, at the same time, their studio in Patras. The Rhomaides Brothers also won fame as portrait photographers, recording for posterity many of the prominent people of their time. Well-known photographers, such as Ioannis Xanthakis and Antonis Milionis, received their training in their studio" (Aliki Tsirgialou in Encyclopaedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, 2008, I p. 619). As a testament to the photographing of antiquity this is a superb exemplar, containing as it does some spectacular views, captured by the pioneering Rhomaides Brothers, whose pin-sharp recording, deriving from their close working relationship with Schliemann and the German Archaeological Institute, carried over into their work for the tourist market. "Like Egypt, Greece attracted some of the very earliest practitioners of photography, and they went directly to the most famous city, Athens, and its most renowned ruins… At that time, when the medium was in its infancy, writers frequently alluded to the evocative power of the photographic image, to which long habituation had dulled our response" (Andrew Szegedy-Maszak in Antiquity & Photography: Early Views of Ancient Mediterranean Sites, 2005, p. 13). This is particularly true of the later work of the Rhomaides Brothers, covering the newly discovered splendours of Greek civilization and giving greater resonance to Poe's timeless eulogy, encapsulated in the line: "the glory that was Greece".

        Eine neue Art von Strahlen (Umschlagtitel). Ueber eine neue Art von Strahlen (Vorläufige Mitteilung) SA aus: Sitzungsberichte der Würzburger Physik.-medic. Gesellschaft 1895

      Würzburg Verlag und Druck der Stahel`schen K. Hof- und Universitäts-Buch- und Kunsthandlung, Ende 1895. - Norman 1841. Garrison-M. 2683 - Erste Ausgabe der ersten Mitteilung über die Röntgenstrahlen; eine 9-seitige zweite Mitteilung erschien 1896. Separatabdruck aus den Sitzungsberichten der Würzburger Physik.-medic. Gesellschaft, mit dem Vermerk "Ende 1895" auf dem Umschlag sowie "Würzburg. Physikal. Institut der Universität. Dec. 1895" am Ende. Röntgen (1845-1923) beobachtete die nach ihm benannte Strahlung 1895, damals war er Professor an der Universität Würzburg. "Während er mit Formen der Geißlerröhre experimentierte, wie sie Philipp Lenard und William Crookes entwickelt hatten, bemerkte Röntgen, daß ein Pappschirm, der mit Bariumplatincyanid bestrichen auf einem Tisch lag, angefangen hatte zu fluoreszieren. Er fand die Ursache davon in der Röhre, obwohl diese in einer lichtundurchlässigen schwarzen Kartonschachtel eingeschlossen war. Er fand heraus, daß zwar menschliches Gewebe für sie durchsichtig sind, Knochen aber nicht. Auch werden photographische Platten durch sie geschwärzt . Ihre Bedeutung für die Chirurgie, die innere Medizin und die Metallurgie ist bekannt. Darüber hinaus haben Röntgens Experimente das Studium von Chemie und Physik revolutioniert." (Carter-Muir 380). - Umschlag und Seiten knickspurig und angestaubt. Umschlag zudem teils verblichen sowie Abrieb und Randläsuren aufweisend. Insgesamt gut erhaltenes Exemplar dieses äußerst seltenen Erstdruckes (ohne Titel und mit abschließendem weißen Blatt). Von dem Sonderdruck erschienen in kurzer Folge noch weitere Ausgaben.

      Bost?on : [Boston Jewish Section Of The Socialist Labor Party](1895-1896). 1ST Edition. Period half-leather, 4to (large) , 368 pages (lacking the 36 pages from issues 28-30) . Weekly. In Yiddish. Title translates as, "The Truth. " Singerman S489, detailing that many holdings are very incomplete, lacking over 10 issues or more. Cahan 179, Freidus, p. 278, Weissberger 76. "A Weekly Journal Devoted To Literature And Useful Knowledge. Published by the Boston jewish Section S. L. P. " Edited by the leading Yiddish essayist, Morris Winchevsky; in fact Der Emes was the first periodical in America under Winchevsky's editorship and a forerunner to the Forverts (The Forward) , which would later become the largest Yiddish-language daily newspaper in the world. Yitskhok Kharlash, in the Yidishe Leksikon, notes that, "On October 13, 1894, Winchevsky arrived in New York ...and threw himself right into the 'movement' as if he were a local. He even became a disputant in the internal friction then current in the ranks of the Jewish sectors of the Socialist Labor Party (S. L. P. ) .... Meanwhile, the Boston Jewish section of the S. L. P. Was working strenuously to for its long planned effort to bring out its own newspaper that would stand above the factionalized fight in the party, and it proposed to Winchevsky that he become editor of the new paper; on May 3, 1895 the first issue of Der emes (The truth) was published.... Der emes was published until January 17, 1896, and in it Winchevsky consolidated the entire opposition of the party at that time; his article 'Foyl oder tsugefoylt' (Lazy or slacker) (August 19, 1895) was the first shot from the 'opposition. ' The party decided accordingly in the middle of January 1896 that Winchevsky must not serve as editor. Winchevsky bid his readers adieu with an article entitled 'Es lebe der emes! ' (The truth lives! ) in the final issue of Der emes. He began to work initially for Abend blat in August 1896. In the subsequent intensified struggle between the 'opposition' and the self-styled 'clique, ' Winchevsky sided with Louis Miller and Abraham Cahan; with Miller he left the party (January 1897) and with Cahan and M. Zametkin, among others, he crossed the country collecting money to fund Forverts (Forward) , as one of the main colleagues in the new daily newspaper from its very first number (April 12, 1897) , and in it he remained even after Cahan's resignation from the editorial position several months later in 1897. At the end of July 1897, he joined Eugene V. Debs's Social Democracy of America (S. D. A. ) and in June 1898 its successor, Social Democratic Party (S. D. P. ) ..." Winchevsky (born Leopold Benzion Novokhovitch; 1856-1932) had earlier, in London, "founded the Dos Poilishe Yidl (The Little Polish Jew) , one of the first Yiddish daily socialist newspapers; and the Arbeter Fraynd, the first Yiddish-language anarchist newspaper" (Wikipedia, 2017) . SUBJECT(S) : Socialism -- United States -- Periodicals. OCLS lists 10 institutions with holdings, though, as in Singerman, some are incomplete. OCLC Number: 18799441. Institutional bookplate, wear to spine and to the original orange paper front cover to issue nr 1 (often missing but present here) , with paper and internal binding remaining amazingly fresh with practically no wear at all.

His illustrations for Austen's novels were partly based on the collection of Regency prints and costumes which he and his brothers had built, occasionally using family and friends as models. The present 1895 illustrated edition was in direct competition with Hugh Thomson's own 1895 edition of Pride and Prejudice, yet despite this rivalry both publications were highly successful, and remain widely regarded as classics in book illustration. The present first edition was issued in two binding variants, the other with gilt floral patterns to the cloth.

        The Black Riders and Other Lines.

      Boston: Copeland and Day,, 1895. Duodecimo. Original japon boards, title label to spine. Housed in a blue morocco backed slipcase and chemise. From the library of Estelle Doheny, with gilt morocco bookplate to the front pastedown. A fine copy. First edition, deluxe issue, one of 50 copies printed in green on japon. The Black Riders is first book of poetry by Stephen Crane (1871–1900), famous for his novels such as his acclaimed Civil War tale The Red Badge of Courage, published in the same year as this collection. Crane was a prolific writer of poetry, though only in private at first, writing five or six poems a day. In 1894 he showed some of these to American writer Hamlin Garland (to whom his book is dedicated), who read them "with growing wonder". With Garland's encouragement, Crane secured publication from Copeland & Day, though not without a struggle which delayed publication until around the same time as The Red Badge of Courage, Crane's verses being highly unconventional for the time in their lack of any consistent rhyme or metre. Perhaps the best in the collection is: "In the desert / I saw a creature, naked, bestial, / who, squatting upon the ground, / held his heart in his hands, and ate of it. / I said, 'Is it good, friend?' / 'It is bitter–bitter,' he answered; / 'But I like it / because it is bitter, / and because it is my heart.'" There is some bibliographical debate as to whether The Black Riders was published just before or just after The Red Badge of Courage; 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 dated March 1895, putting it before. If the latter is so, then as well as being Crane's first poetry collection, it is also his second published book and the first book published under his own name, following his pseudonymously published first book, Maggie. A typed slip laid-into this volume, gives auction records from the 1920s (then making as much as $220), and observing: "Next to the very scarce Maggie in wrappers, Vincent Starrett, in his Bibliography of Crane says that 'The Black Riders' on vellum is the most difficult item to find. Of the 50 copies, probably not more than half of them are still in existence".

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1895. First edition. Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL GILT CLOTH OF YEATS'S FIRST COLLECTION OF VERSE. ONE OF ONLY 750 COPIES. "Until the publication of Poems (1895), Yeats's early literary achievement rested significantly on his work as a folklorist..." Yeats's publication of Poems "saw the start of his lifelong commitment to weeding and rewriting his early work into a canon. His approach, as Hugh Kenner has put it, was that of 'an architect, not a decorator; he didn't accumulate poems, he wrote books', each collection a polished and coherent whole" (Cambridge Companion to W.B. Yeats; R.F. Foster, DNB). With beautiful decorated cloth and title page after designs by H. Granville Fell. Contains such classics as "The Lake Isle of Innisfree," The Rose cycle, and the longer works, "The Wanderings of Usheen," and "The Countess Cathleen" (dedicated to Maud Gonne). London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1895. Octavo, original gilt-decorated cloth; housed in stunning custom half calf gilt box by noted book designer Sjoerd Hoftra. Toning to spine (as often), mild soiling to cloth. A few scholarly notes in pencil, text nearly pristine.

Adams's 1972 novel Watership Down was one of the most successful, and remains one of the most beloved, children's novels of the 20th century. Adams described Kipling as an enormous influence on his work, stating of him: "Kipling unimitated, inimitable Kipling, how shall I describe thee? Beyond argument, no one has ever written books more full of enjoyment for children", and that "Kipling has his finger firmly in the 'Watership Down' pie, and without him those lines would never have been written" (in Blishen, pp. 171-72). The two Jungle Books were collections of stories which had previously appeared in periodicals; originally published in book form in a print run of 7,000 and 10,000 respectively, they went through numerous reprints and have remained two of Kipling's best known works.

        The Works of Edgar Allan Poe. [including Tales of Mystery and Imagination].

      London: Published by J. Shiells and Co., 1895.. [Strange Tales]. FINELY BOUND. Eight volumes. Octavo (18 x 12cm). With 24 fine photogravure plates. Contemporary dark red half calf with two maroon title labels, gilt raised bands and gilt to spines. Marbled boards and end papers; top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Light wear to spines and fore-edges, some chipping and gouging to spines; more so to volume I. A little foxing to edges. Very good. A seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, Poe exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Conan Doyle, Verne, and Baudelaire. This collection of Poe's best stories contains all the terrifying and bewildering tales that characterise his work, as well as the Gothic horror of 'The Pit and the Pendulum' with other similarly weird tales, together with all three of the landmark cases featuring his ground-breaking detective Auguste Dupin. Indeed, the history of the detective story begins with the publication of 'The Murders In the Rue Morgue' (Matthews). He was a writer of genius who was interested in crime, especially violent deaths, cryptograms, and the whole process of logical deduction (Quayle). Poe's mystery of 'The Purloined Letter' is also a prototype of spy stories like those of James Bond. (Haining).

Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. viii, pp 252 The dedication copy of Wells' 1895 fantasy, inscribed to the widow of the writer Walter Humboldt Low to whom the book was posthumously dedicated. Low who had helped Wells get started in journalism (see An Experiment in Autobiography) died of pneumonia shortly before the book's publication, prompting the printed dedication: 'To the Memory of my Dear Friend Walter Low'. Wells has inscribed the book to the grieving widow on the half title in the most self-effacing way: 'With the Author's Kindest regards', underlining his inscription. Alice who was remarried to John Alexander Herbert (Deputy Keeper of Manuscripts at the British Museum) only a year later subsequently went to some lengths to maintain her ownership of this treasured memento of her first marriage, writing on the first blank 'Alice Herbert (private library) (not to be lent)' with her bookplate as Alice Herbert opposite showing a woman in a boat looking over her shoulder towards a menorah - the family was Anglo-Jewish. The book is in good condition only, bound in the publisher's red cloth with a gilt angel to the upper cover, bevelled edges to the boards and top edge gilt. The cloth is marked and worn though the binding is perfectly sound. Internally some foxing and occasional fingermarks from regular reading. Alice Herbert went on to publish poetry and several novels; her marriage to Walter Low produced one daughter, Ivy Low Litvinov, who married a Russian revolutionary exile in London in 1916, who rose to become Soviet Foreign Minister and Ambassador to Washington. The Wonderful Visit was inspired by a comment from John Ruskin that an angel finding itself in Britain would be shot on sight. The novel won significant praise from reviewers and Joseph Conrad who wrote to Wells to praise his 'imagination so unbounded and so brilliant'.
