        BLAKE OF THE "RATTLESNAKE" OR THE MAN WHO SAVED ENGLAND: A STORY OF TORPEDO WARFARE IN 189-...

      London: Tower Publishing Company Limited,. 1895. original pictorial gray-green cloth, front panel stamped in red and black, spine panel stamped in gold.. Touch of rubbing to cloth at head and tail of spine and corner tips,. free endpapers a bit darkened, a very bright, tight, near fine copy.. A exceptional copy of an attractive book rarely found in this. condition. (#148891). First edition. The first of Jane's four scientific romances. An account of future sea warfare by a naval authority and future compiler of yearly catalogues of ships and aircraft. "War against France and Russia in torpedo-carrying ships, with love melodrama around hero. He dies saving England, after her fleet has been destroyed because of coal miners' strike. Bloody-minded anti civilian militarism." - Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 61. "I would say one final word to those who object to these 'future war yarns,' on the grounds that they are likely to set other nations, at present friendly to us, by the ears. Foreign writers are frequently turning out similar stories, describing the utter destruction of the British Navy by their own; yet I never heard of any of us bearing them ill- will for it. May our Warfare of the Future long be confined to the pages of books; as, indeed, it will be, so long as foreign nations know that we are ready to tackle the lot of them if need be." - (from the author's "preface") The author's illustrations are quite interesting from an artistic point of view and, especially in the scenes of nocturnal combat, have an impressionistic quality, a touch of Turner.

        Eine Neue Art von Strahlen; Eine neue Art von Strahlen. II. Mittheilung (Fortsetzung und Schluss)

      Wurzburg: K. Hof, 1895. FIRST EDITIONS. Original printed wrappers, with the ownership signature of Dr. H. Michaelis (?) on front wrapper. Preserved in a folding clamshell box. PMM, 380. First edition of the first published reports on the sensational discovery of X-rays -- a form of light invisible to the eye which had never before been observed. With remarkable insight, Röntgen first suspected a new phenomenon while investigating the florescence produced near a Crookes tube in late 1895. He immediately began a thorough set of experiments that revealed the uses of the new ray for science and medicine. Hundreds of articles and books on the new Röntgen-rays were published in the year following their discoverer's announcement. Röntgen (1845-1923), a German physicist, was awarded the first Nobel Prize in physics in 1901. His research spanned nearly all the branches of physics, from work with gases and solutions to investigations of the electromagnetic theory of Maxwell.

        1st Battalion Coldstream Guards, Household Brigade Drag Hounds, 1893-1894

      Windsor, England, 1895. Presumed first and only printing of the first edition. Almost certainly an edition of fewer than 500 copies. Printed by Oxley & Son, printers to the Queen, High Street, Windsor. Bound by R. Ingalton Drake, Eton and London, active 1869-1895. NOT ex-library. Oblong, approximately 10 x 13 inches. Bound in three-quarter oxblood morocco, the leather mostly rubbed back, with gilt rules to the boards and with highly polished black leatherette boards, with crisp gilt-stamped emblem and lettering to the front board. The black boards much rubbed and gouged, especially around the edges. About a 1/2 inch loss at the spine tail. Hinges starting but still holding quite nicely. Gorgeous period marbled paper on the pastedowns and FEPs. Hubbed spine. Very rubbed and abraded corners. A.E.G. With 43 numbered pages, and with 24 full-page B&W plates as well as 5 pasted-in color ephemera, all on coated stock. Occasional fingering marks in the margins. Almost all pages with moderate age-yellowing at the outer edges, not into the text or the plates. No remainder marks.

Drag hunting first developed as a way to test foxhounds, but it had turned into its own sport by the middle of the 19th century. Army officers enjoyed the faster-paced drag hunt at least as far back as 1863; even today, the military has a pack of drag hounds. The sport is reliant on the goodwill and cooperation of landowners and farmers." The book's narrative begins, "The Battalion arrived at Windsor from Uffington at the end of manoeuvres, On September 16th, 1893. The following day being Sunday, a well-attended levee was held at the Kennels, and a list of names being provided by Caley, attempts were made to fit them to various hounds.". First British Edition. Three-Quarter Leather. Very Good Minus. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Limited Edition.

First performed in Paris at the Opéra-Comique on January 19, 1884. Libretto based on Antoine-François Prévost's novel L'histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut (1731).Although an early work, Manon may be Massenet's best-known and most popular opera. "The designation ?opéra comique' is misleading: there are only a few lines of spoken dialogue. But in their place there is much mélodrame, faultlessly handled at a technical level. In the final analysis Manon is by way of being a ?highlights' opera, lacking the cohesion and economy of more mature Massenet works, but those highlights were seldom surpassed in the composer's oeuvre."

        The Time Machine.

      London: Heinemann, 1895. FIRST EDITION. Pp.[viii]; 152; [32], advertisements. Publisher's oatmeal cloth titled and decorated in purple to both covers, with untrimmed edges (Currey's State 'A'). Later catalogue at rear in 32 pages, with 'Manxman' to p.3 (earlier ads begin with 'Manx Man' ad). Copies are also noted with no ads present.No inscriptions, internally clean, moderate wear to cloth, spine a shade darkened. A very good copy indeed. With its central theme of social degeneration, The Time Machine is a key early example of the Dying Earth genre, containing a bleak vision of the End of Time through the exhaustion of our planet. 6,000 were printed of which only 1,500 were bound in cloth (rather than softcovers) as here. [Wells Society 4; The earliest work of Science fiction to be based on the idea of time travel].

        British Political Pamphlets: National Union, National Democratic Labour Front, Liberal, Labour, others.

      Various publishers 1895 - ++180 British Political Leaflets, 1895-1945++ 180 Scarce Examples of Political Ephemera Offering a collection of 180 scarce political leaflets—about half of which are single-page, single-sheet handouts. Included are: National Union and Conservative Central Office leaflets, 1895: 41. Coalition Candidate National Unionist, 1918: 57. National Democratic Labour Party, 1921: 6. British Labour/Unionist, 1923: 19. Fight the Famine, 1919-1923: 6. National Declaration (regarding League of Nations), 1935: 7. Liberal, 1945: 10. Labour, 1945: 3. Conservative, 1945: 37. I would say that 1/3 of these are somewhat brittle, especially those from before the turn of the century. On the other hand, most of these are very difficult to find, given their ephemeral nature.

Relatively minor fraying at ends of backstrip and on cover corners. In addition to this impressive work, Haley wrote and published another "race" book ("Sparkling Gems of Race Knowledge Worth Reading") in 1897 and a religious work ("From Darkness into Light; or, Bible Mysteries Unfolded") in 1911. The latter work appears to argue that death rather than eternal damnation is the penalty for sin. A helpful librarian at the Nashville Public Library advised us that neither Haley nor co-publisher Florida are identified with a "(c)" in the Nashville city directories of the period -- an identification used to indicate that the listed person was "colored." Haley is identified in the census of 1900 as white.

        A collection of Twenty-five Original Gelatin Silver Photographs. About 1895.

      1895 1895 - Twenty-five photographs with images of Rangoon and Mandalay, while the last two are of Penang Island and the Bridge of Penta Kõta. Each photo measures about 15 x 23 cm, four are slightly smaller. The photographs are pasted on grey thick paper (27 x 35 cm) with manuscript caption labels in French. A few of the photographs with minor silvering of the photo margins, the paper mounts have some mild traces of moisture exposure but overall the condition is very good. This is an interesting documentation of British Burma at the turn of the 20th century. (Burma was under British rule between 1886 and 1948). Fifteen of the photos are devoted to Rangoon and its vicinity; of the harbour, street scenes, elephant at work, several of the Shuedagon pagoda, of the Sule pagoda and a few of the countryside. Eight of the photos are taken in Mandalay: city views, the market, Shewenandaw Monastery and the Palace. The Mandalay Palace, built in 1857-9, was the primary royal residence of the last two kings of the country (King Mindon and King Thibaw) up until the Third Burmese War and the annexation by the British Empire. During World War II most of the palace compound was destroyed. The Shewenandaw Monastery is the single remaining major original structure of the original Royal Palace today.

        Abbas Hilmi II of Egypt. [Weißenburg, Burckardts Nachfolger, c. 1895].

      1895. Head-and-shoulders portrait. Stencil-coloured lithograph. 43 x 34 cm. One of the very rare Weißenburg illustrated broadsheets showing oriental motifs. These were published under the fictitious address of Hassan Uwais (Auvès) in Cairo. The present leaf shows the last Khedive of Egypt (ruled 1892-1914); thus it must have been published during under Camille Burckardt's successors, who took over the Weißenburg factory in 1889. - Slight tear to right edge; slight creasing. Edges somewhat browned. All of these prints are very rare; a different print commanded £21,250 at Sotheby's in 2012.
