        Gossip About an Old House on the Upper Thames.

      [Birmingham,: Printed at the Press of the Birmingham Guild of Handicraft Ltd, November, 1895]. The first printing - a Buxton Forman creation with the booklabel of one of the founders of the William Morris Society. No.37 of 50 copies. Wood engraving of Kelmscott Manor by C.M. Gere as the frontispiece (originally used in the Kelmscott Press News from Nowhere) and two other wood engravings by Edmund New, woodcut initials. Pp. ii, 14. 4to., original blue boards iwth title printed in black on the upper cover, in plain paper dust jacket with manuscript title date and edition number on the upper cover. A very good copy with the booklabel of Freeman Bass, the co-founder of the Morris Society. Some browning to free endpapers which seems to verify that the plain jacket was present when the book was issued. Deemed to be a form of piracy by Buxton Forman, the forger, it is conjectured that this book was directly extracted from the 50 copies of The Quest No. IV where the text was published first and dressed up in a new binding with an added colophon which read "Printed at the press of the Birmingham Guild of Handicraft Limited, published in "The Quest" for November MDCCCXCV, and fifty copie sdone in this separate form." It is pretty obvious when one looks at the difference between the text and printing and typography of the half title and colophon. In his Morris bibliography Buxton Forman justifies the book referring to it as a 'choice littel book, of the same typography as the magazine'. On the plus side we now know that we are getting the first printing of Morris's words rather than an offprint in the second printing.

        "Le Beau Brummell - Le Roi des Dandy's".

      1895 1Manuscrit titré, numéroté et signé, (1895), in-8, 9 pages, sous chemise chevreau bordé de toile. Augustin Cabanès, qui naquit le 30 avril 1862 à Gourdon en Quercy et décèda le 5 mai 1928 à Paris, est un médecin, journaliste et historien réputé de la médecine française. A dix-huit ans, il commence ses études médicales à Bordeaux puis se rend à Paris suivre les cours des Ecoles de Médecine et de Pharmacie. En 1881, il est reçu à l'internat des Hôpitaux de Paris et en 1886, il obtint son diplôme de pharmacien de première classe et en 1889, il soutient, avec succès, sa thèse de doctorat en médecine.Attiré par les lettres, Cabanès avait fait ses débuts, en 1885, dans les recherches spéciales auxquelles il devait se consacrer, par une étude sur les Souverains névropathes, travail qui parut dans le "Progrès médical". Vers la même époque, il commença à collaborer à "l'Intermédiaire des chercheurs et curieux", dirigé par Lucien Faucou. Peu à peu, il entra à la rédaction de plusieurs grands organes scientifiques parisiens. En 1887, il fut chargé du feuilleton et du premier-Paris au Journal de Médecine de Paris, à la France médicale, il écrivit de nombreux articles, sous le pseudonyme de « Docteur Quercy » Cabanès aborda ensuite les revues littéraires : la Revue hebdomadaire, la Grande Encyclopédie, la Bévue des Bévues, le Magasin pittoresque, etc. ; enfin les journaux politiques: le Figaro, le Gaulois, le Journal, l'Eclair, etc. En décembre 1894, le Dr Cabanès fonde "La Chronique médicale", bimensuel où il publie des articles inédits sur la santé des personnages de la littérature et de l'histoire, tels "Le beau Brummell", sur les relations de la médecine avec l'histoire, la littérature, l'art, la sociologie, l'économie politique, etc. Son manuscrit titré "Le roi des Dandys: le "beau" Brummell" commence ainsi : "Voici un homme peu connu en France ..." et s'efforce d'apporter une répons à cette question : "Qu'a t'il fait pour conquérir cette célébrité qui fut presque, de son vivant, de la gloire ? ...". "George Bryan Brummell naquit le 7 juin 1778, collégien à Eton siège de la haute "gentry" britannique", son parcours est une suite d'anecdotes jusqu'à son accession au titre incontesté d'arbitre suprême des élégances, fonction exercée jusqu'à son décès le 30 mars 1840. Des ratures et corrections ornent ce récit éclairant sur ce personnage "hors du commun". Pli central, reports d'agraphes et infimes taches.

        ABC IN DIXIE: A PLANTATION ALPHABET

      London | New York: Ernest Nister | E. P. Dutton, 1895. First Edition. The Bontes' best-known work, very much in the flat, brightly colored style favored by Willard Bonte. He also designed greeting cards, boards games and calendars. His "Coon Calendar for 1905" (so inappropriate we can hardly type the words!) ten years after ABC IN DIXIE attests to the mainstream popularity of the imagery. DIXIE -- dreadful though the highly exaggerated caricatures are -- is one of the great examples of its genre, In glazed pictorial boards backed in cloth, this ABC book has a color lithographed half-title, title page, and the 26 letters with a short text depicting a black person on the plantation in dialect and racist stereotypes, facing a full page color plate. The beautiful quality of the printing underscores by contrast the distasteful nature of the contents. Some the leaves have chipping and discreet repairs to closed tears, none affecting the text or images. Some soiling to the boards. No marks or writing in the book.

        Good Night

      One of 50 hand coloured copies, signed and numbered by the artist, Louis B Davis. (1860-1941) Davis was an English water- colourist, book illustrator and stained glass artist. Active in the Arts and Crafts movement, Nikolaus Pevsner credited him to be the last of the pre-Raphaelites. A member of the Art Worker's Guild and Society of Painters, he knew William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The book is a collection of children's poems accompanied by romantic hand- coloured illustrations. A very good copy in publisher's illustrated paper covered boards, cloth spine. A little rubbed at the extremities and some light foxing to the end papers, but otherwise clean and bright throughout. The book was originally designed to be held together with green ribbons, now detached but inserted loosely. No copy held at the British Library. A delightful rarity from the Fin de siecle.

In the publisher's die-cut chromolithographed stiff wrappers featuring a full-length portrait of St. Nicholas himself, snow-covered Christmas tree in hand, standing next to a donkey bearing baskets full of snow-covered toys. This large format shaped book is the least common of the McLoughlin editions featuring Moore's enduring Christmas poem. Apart from a very shallow crease at St. Nicholas's head and a tidy ink inscription on the inside front cover, this is a fine, bright copy of a rare survivor.

        CHRONICLES OF MARTIN HEWITT. BEING THE SECOND SERIES OF THE ADVENTURES OF MARTIN HEWITT: INVESTIGATOR

      Ward, Lock & Bowden, Limited, 1895., London - First edition. Illustrated by D. Murray Smith. Former owner's inked name on the front fly leaf, else a beautiful, fresh, bright, solid copy. As Vincent Starrett once wrote: "After Holmes, the deluge!" Martin Hewitt is the only contemporary imitator of Sherlock Holmes to survive the years. Queen's Quorum 18 says "Imitators multiplied rabbidly, and if you look closely, you will see the same spawning process going on still. The Holmes pattern persists even today. Of Doyle's contemporary imitators the most durable (indeed the only important one to survive the years) is the private investigator, a man of awe-inspiring technical and statistical knowledge, in Arthur Morrison's MARTIN HEWITT, INVESTIGATOR." Six well-written short stories that feature Martin Hewitt and his able assistant, Brett, a journalist. An exceptional copy of a rare book. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Autograph letter signed. Paris, 19 and 20 Nov. 1895.

      1895. 4to (203 x 130 mm). 4 pp. In French. On November 19, Zola writes to his wife: "I see that your day on Saturday was well spent: a visit at the curiosities merchants, lunch with the Luzzattos, a visit in the Coliseum, dinner at the Embassy. And how you pressed yourself to get double the benefit! You speak of leaving Rome Tuesday evening, that is, today. You will thus not have received the letter in which I advised you to stay until the Consistory. You have to return in the end, if you have had enough. Only, I am a bit embarrassed about my letters, as you didn t send me the dispatch I asked you to send three days before you leave Rome. I'll take the chance and continue to write you at the Grand Hotel, from where my letters will no doubt be forwarded to you. Today I did up my first small packages and sent the first two chapters of Rome to the translators. Caponi will have these two chapters in his hands this evening, with the authorization to begin in La Tribuna of December 23. I haven't seen Caponi again; the seven hundred francs are embarrassing to him. I have negotiated everywhere for Rome except with Spain and America. Spain will come, but I doubt very much that America will this time. That will make a hole. All the same, I am counting on the translations bringing in thirty to forty thousand francs, which is a reasonable figure. After my lunch, Jules having told me the masons had finished their work in the old pit, I went down to see. That will make a superb cellar, much bigger than our old wine cellar. It will be cooler than the one we re using now; and you could store wine there. But I think it ought rather to be made into a coal cellar. One could easily store thirty or forty thousand kilogrammes there if there were a real reason for buying coal en gros, in great quantity. You will see. I took the liberty of opening a letter addressed in your name and stamped with a stamp of Lagesse; and I was right, for it contained simply a receipt for two hundred francs that he no doubt owed you. Giacomelli has lost his wife. I am sending him your card and mine, with a word of sympathy. The day was quite cold and foggy. This is decidedly villainous weather. As soon as you are back, we will really move into our winter quarters. I forgot to say regarding the new cellar that the work on everything having to do with the other rooms is going to begin shortly. The architect of the house had a long meeting with the architect of no. 23, for it seems that there are very complicated questions about the wall in between. Happily, we didn t take it inside. But I will be content when our rooms upstairs are also finished. And that s all for today. Our journal is about to end, for your return is near. For me, your letters were a great pleasure every morning and I am happy to think that mine followed you everywhere, reminding you that the house was waiting for you and that you have an old and good friend there who loves you and in spite of everything dreams of your happiness as if it were his own. Monsieur Din just made me rage. He had stayed under... and I looked for him everywhere. I told him you were about to return, and I think he understood...". The following day, on the 20th, Zola writes: "This morning I received your letter in which you fixed your return for Monday. If thus you keep this date and if you don t stay in Rome until the Consistory, this letter is the last you will be able to receive in Rome, as it will arrive Friday morning and you should be leaving on Friday evening, according to the data you gave me. Thus, I am embarrassed as to an address for the letter I ll write you this evening and which will depart tomorrow. I m going to await your letter of tomorrow, and I ll make my decision if you have stuck to yours. In this case, this letter would be the last which I would send you to Rome, and I would address the one this evening to Turin, general delivery. By the way, I think Monday is an excellent date for your return".

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("A. Bebel").

      Berlin, 30. IV. 1895. - 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Um Ihnen den guten Willen zu zeigen erkläre ich mich bereit Sonnabend eine Versammlung abzuhalten, sei es in Apolda oder in Weimar. Aber ich erkläre ausdrücklich, daß ich nur für diese eine Versammlung zu haben bin, weil ich Sonntag Vormittag wieder hierher zurück muß. Einmal weil ich hier für Montag zur Umsturzvorlage noch viel Arbeit habe, dann weil ich in Rücksicht auf meine Betheiligung an den Debatten über die Umsturzvorlage meine Lunge schonen muß. Schreiben Sie mir also wo die Versammlung ist, ich muß mit Bummelzug fahren und käme Abend 7 Uhr 34 in Apolda bez. 7 Uhr 54 in Weimar an. Die Versammlung bitte ich also erst um halb neun Uhr anzuberaumen u. für ein großes Glas Zuckerwasser zu besorgen [.]". - Bebel war einer der Begründer der deutschen Sozialdemokratie und einer der bedeutendsten Parlamentarier in der Zeit des Deutschen Kaiserreichs. Die sog. Umsturzvorlage war eine am 5. Dezember 1894 in den Deutschen Reichstag eingebrachte Gesetzesvorlage des Reichskanzlers Fürst Chlodwig zu Hohenlohe- Schillingsfürst, die nach ihrer Begründung den gefährlichen, auf den gewaltsamen Umsturz der bestehenden Verfassung und Gesellschaftsordnung des Deutschen Reiches zielenden Bestrebungen entgegentreten sollte. Die hinter diesen Bestrebungen stehenden Kräfte waren nach Meinung der Verfasser der Umsturzvorlage insbesondere die Sozialdemokraten. Am 11. Mai 1895 wurde die Umsturzvorlage in Zweiter Lesung zurückgewiesen. - Etw. fleckig und mit Knickfalten sowie kleiner Eckfehlstelle; mit gepr. Vignette "Deutscher Reichstag".

        The Philistine. A Periodical of Protest

      The Roycrofters. June 1895 1903, East Aurora - Vol. ! Issue 1 - vol. XVI issue 6 12mo. bound in brown suede spines with printed paper lablels over gray green boards, original wrappers bound in. All but vol. I with protective brown plastic "cover" over spine with cut outs for labels. They peel off easily. Elbert Hubbard described himself well as "a businessman with a literary attachment." . One of the highest paid lecturers in the United States (he received $2,500 a week on a vaudeville circuit), he was the author of six novels . His most famous publication, however, is "The Philistine: A Periodical of Protest (1895-1915), a bibelot with a monthly circulation exceeding 100,000. Begun as a satirical attack on the editors who had rejected his submissions (including William Dean Howells and Edward Bok), his 'fadazine' was profitable from the beginning . Both flaunting and regretting his 'outsider' status, this Midwesterner's acerbic observations, over two decades, regarding the Establishment and the leading figures and publications of his time are valuablet to a history of this period ." -Bruce A. WhiteThe author, Elbert Hubbard, was an popular and influential writer, publisher, lecturer, artist, and transcendentalist philosopher at the turn of the 20th century. He helped establish Roycroft, an Arts and Crafts movement community in New York state in 1895. Roycroft had their own press, and since no major publications would print Mr. Hubbard's stories, he decided to "protest" and print them himself.For over 20 years, the satirical magazine called The Philistine was printed "Every Little While". It was bound in brown butcher paper because, Mr. Hubbard said, "There is meat inside." The stories are delightful, and the typography is beautiful. There are also several pages of advertisements that are entertaining, though most of them are included in a single signature that were folded but not trimmed. Maybe it was bound that way purposefully but I can't see most of the ads unless I dismantle the book, and I won't dare do that.Mr. Hubbard's life sure was interesting, but so was his death. At one of his lectures, he was speaking about the Titanic, and spefically commended Mrs. Isador Straus who refused to board a lifeboat because it would mean leaving her husband behind. Mr. Hubbard stated, ". to pass out as did Mr. and Mrs. Isador Straus is glorious. Few have such a privilege. Happy lovers, both. In life they were never separated and in death they are not divided."As fate would have it, Mr. Hubbard and his wife Alice were aboard the Lusitania when it was torpedoed by the German submarine Unterseeboot 20. They, too, refused to abandon each other. Instead they went to the top deck with the other passengers, linked arms, calmly walked into a room and closed the door. A witness wrote, "It was apparent that his idea was that they should die together, and not risk being parted on going into the water." - Lauren DiRusso. Some spines with some wear to ends, slight spotting to some boards. A few volumes with slight damp staining to top edges, bookplate in each volume on front pastedown and name in ink on each front fly leaf, albeit a nice set [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
