These short-waisted young ladies and tail-coated gentlemen are exactly the people whom we see in Miss Austen's pages. It features 40 ILLUSTRATIONS!!! by celebrated artistCHARLES E. BROCK. Jane Austen presents little physical description of the characters and their surroundings in Pride & Prejudice. This gave illustrators a great opportunity to create their own interpretation. Therefore, soon after the writer's death, illustrated editions of her work were published. At first, the limited printing techniques of the time and the high cost of publishing artwork made the inclusion of illustrations limited to one or two, usually just a frontispiece. The early attempts misrepresented the world Austen created by portraying the Victorian age, instead of the Georgian era. It wasn … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition, first printing with page [235] advertising the three works of Gilbert Parker's Best Books, and the last page of advertisements (page 238) ending with The Land of the Sun, by Christian Reid; last gathering, including ads on laid paper. Octavo, original publisher's tan cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Rare and desirable in the original dust jacket. An abbreviated version of The Red Badge of Courage was first serialized in The Philadelphia Press in December 1894. This version of the story, which was culled to 18,000 words by an editor specifically for the serialization, was reprinted in newspapers across America, establishing Crane's fame. Crane biographer John Berryman wrote that the story was published in at least 200 small city dailies and approximately 550 weekly papers. In October 1895, a version, which was 5,000 words shorter than the original manuscript, was printed in book form by D. Appleton & Company. "Stephen Crane, with no more military experience than his lively imagination could cull from Battles and Leaders of the Civil War and from Tolstoy, told so graphically how a raw recruit feels in battle that The Red Badge of Courage must be regarded as the first artistic approach to the war. It pictures no historical figure or event, except that Chancellorsville is its setting, but its sense of the helplessness and meaninglessness of the common soldier, maneuvered by superiors and circumstance, is a brilliant achievement in impression.

Dropsie, Moses
Philadelphia: Billstein & Son, 1895. 1st edition. Original paper wrappers. 4to. 7 pages, 28 cm. Dropsie's harsh critique of the low state of Jewish scholarship in the US, especially as exhibited within the Reform movement. Moses Dropsie (1821-1905) was a prominent American lawyer who was active in public affairs as a member of the Philadelphia Whig party. He was heavily involved in Jewish charitable and educational work. Dropsie was also the president of the Maimonides College, the Philadelphia branch of the Alliance Israelite Universelle, and Graz College (EJ, 1906) . The estate left by his will created Dropsie College, with the goal of correcting the low level of Jewish knowledge he detailed in this booklet. This work is cited by Jonathan Sarna in his essay on Philadelphia entitled, "The Making of an American Jewish Culture" as documentation that "on at least one occation, Cyrus Adler and Solomon Schechter actively conspired to keep the Reform Movement down, rigging the board of the Schiff Library of Jewish Classics to ensure that the 'Reform element' would not have a 'preponderating vote'" (in Friedman, 1993, p. 151) .

(BINDINGS - ZAEHNSDORF). DONNE, JOHN
New York: [Printed at the DeVinne Press for] The Grolier Club, 1895. First Edition thus, ONE OF 380 COPIES on paper (and three on vellum). Using the revisions made by Fireside Poet James Russell Lowell, this handsomely bound work is the product of a renewed interest in the poetry of John Donne at the end of the 19th century. Donne (ca. 1572-1631) led the life of a dashing bachelor until his ordination as an Anglican priest, and his poems (like his life) run the gamut from the profane ("To his Mistress, on Going to Bed") to the sacred (the Holy Sonnets). Today, we know him as one of the most admired of British poets, but there was a protracted period of time in literary history when publishing his work was not thought to be commercially viable; for example, for more than two centuries--between 1669 and 1872--there was just one significant edition of Donne's works. According to the DNB, "it was the work of scholars and critics at the very end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries that saw a wholesale rehabilitation," and the present edition "went some way to providing a widely available text for the poems." Although James Russell Lowell (1819-1891) is perhaps best known for the satirical "Bigelow Papers" and "A Fable for Critics," he was also a great admirer of Donne and the present work is based on manuscript emendations he made to an earlier (poorly edited) edition of his poetry. According to the preface by the learned author and critic Charles Edward Norton (1827-1908), Lowell's contributions are preserved here, while the text is largely based on the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1895. ONE OF 350 COPIES on paper (and eight on vellum). 213 x 150 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 7/8"). 2 p.l., 98 pp., [1] leaf (blank). Edited by F. S. Ellis after the edition by J. O. Halliwell. ONE OF 350 COPIES on paper (and eight on vellum). Original holland-backed blue paper boards, edges untrimmed and UNOPENED. Woodcut frontispiece by Edward Burne-Jones, elaborate wide border on frontispiece and first page of text, one page with half border, decorative woodcut initials, device in colophon. Printed in red and black in Chaucer type. Peterson A-33; Sparling 33; Tomkinson, p. 116. Tiny tear to tail edge of front board and small dent to its fore edge, trivial spotting to paper boards, hint of fraying to head of spine, faint mark (from printing process?) to one margin, but a very well-preserved, unread copy, quite clean, fresh, and bright internally. This 14th century verse romance telling of the childhood of one of Arthur's knights is the first book in the series of Kelmscott Medieval romances, which also included "Syr Ysambrace" and "Sire Degrevaunt." According to Cockerell, "they were all reprinted from the Camden Society's volume of 1844, which was a favorite with Morris from his Oxford days." This fragile volume is now infrequently found in condition nearly as good as seen here.

Pope, Gustavus W.
New York: F. Tennyson Neely Publisher, n.d. [1895].. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1-4] 5-499 [500: blank], 16 inserted plates with illustrations by Miss Fairfax and Mrs. McAuley from drawings by the author, original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, white endpapers with floral pattern printed green. First edition. A later issue of the first edition with the "Arena" imprint on the spine panel and a cancel title page with Neely's imprint. This novel, the second and last of Pope's projected "Romances of the Planets" series, was first published by Arena Publishing Company in 1895. Arena issued the novel in two forms, in cloth with sixteen inserted plates, and in paper with three inserted plates. Neely acquired the Arena sheets (and some clothbound copies) and reissued them with cancel title pages. Although sixteen was the full compliment of plates for the copies bound in cloth, many of the hardbound copies issued by Arena and reissued by Neely have fewer inserted plates, generally three, but sometimes two or four. This copy has all sixteen plates. About 1897 Neely reprinted the novel on cheap pulp paper stock as a 25¢ paperback with two inserted plates. In Pope's sequel to JOURNEY TO MARS ... (1894), the protagonist and his Martian princess visit Venus, a younger world comparable to some stage of earth's prehistory.

United States Government
United States Government, 1895. 16 volumes in original black cloth with titles gilt on spines, fine condition. Ex-library with withdrawal stamps, discreet manuscript numbering on title pages, small spine labels. This is the complete record of the lengthy arbitration between the United States and Great Britain regarding the disposition of fur seals in the Pribilof Islands of Alaska and the Bering Sea. Some copies of this review were printed with a separate atlas volume, but this set contains 12 folding maps in volume 3 and 7 in volume 7. Also, volume 16 contains facsimiles of many of the documents from the Alaskan archives which were used as source material in this case. The decision in this case supported Great Britain's position and awarded damages accordingly. Ultimately, however, the recommendations and restrictions on seal hunting which flowed from this case were found to be insufficient and were superceded by regulations passed at the International Fur Seal Convention of 1911.

Wells, H. G.
New York: Holt, 1895. Very good. H.G. Wells first novel: A sensible alternative to the very expensive first issue by Holt from 1895. This will be my last listing on this one... THE TIME MACHINE AN INVENTION Hardcover, first edition. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1895. by Wells, H[erbert] G[eorge] (Still not a popular author when this copy was published; the title page was changed to H. G. Wells, but the Author's Note following that was not changed and still remained "H. S. Wells.") Small octavo, 216 pages with no ads, 22 book titles listed under the "Buckram Series" books on the verso of the half title page (12 titles are listed in the first issue) inserted frontispiece (with tissue guard) with an illustration by W. B. Russell, original decorated tan buckram, front and spine panels stamped in gray purple ink with top page edges gilt, other edges untrimmed-the same as the first issue published by Holt Company. First edition, early printing of the author's first novel with author's name correctly printed as "H. G. WELLS" on recto of title leaf. The stamping on the spine is clearly legible, which is not common in these buckram books. The "Author's Note" following title page is still incorrectly printed "H. S. Wells" as was in the first American edition first issue.

Elton (Ernest A.)
n.d. circa - 1903, 1895. manuscript versions in Elton's hand, all working copies with extensive revision (one volume of the second work marked 'Prompt Copy'), in the case of the second play with printed portions laid down, some diagrams for staging, lists of props, etc., various sizes and formats, different colour wrappers, fastened with split-pins, wrappers tatty and soiled generally, fair condition. A record of the busy career of an American playwright, actor and director at the turn of the twentieth-century, based in New York City - though in respect of the final play his return address is updated from Brooklyn to Toronto, and he was also for some time at the University of Vermont. The plays are set in and around New York, all comedies. In one volume of the first work, the author has pasted portions of the programme in lieu of a title-page - with an advert for the play's performance at the Park Theatre, Brooklyn laid in - listing its locations in Harlem, Broadway, and on Fifth Avenue, and establishing the extent of his involvement as actor, author and director. The material gains interest from the extensive revisions carried out by the author, during rehearsals - adding dialogue, didascalia, and notes for staging.

VERLAINE, Paul.
Paris: Publications du 'Fin de Siècle'. 1895. FIRST EDITION Half title, 1p. ads., portrait with tissue guard, 1p. ads. Uncut in orig. quarter vellum over marbled boards, vellum tips, brown morocco label lettered in gilt; spine sl. dusted else a very nice copy. Ink presentation on half title: ' a M. John Lane, souvenir cordial, P. Verlaine'. v.g. Paul Verlaine, 1844-1896, French poet, considered one of the greatest figures of the fin de siècle and the Decadent movement both in France and internationally. In 1872, Verlaine abandoned his young wife and infant son and began a volatile affair with fellow poet Arthur Rimbaud; the relationship came to an end after Verlaine shot his lover in the hand, and he subsequently served two years in prison for the crime. Verlaine lived in England for a time with Rimbaud and returned upon his release from jail, supporting himself by teaching French, Latin and Greek. He returned to France in the late 1870s, but had apparently met John Lane prior to his departure from England - he inscribes this copy of his autobiography to the iconic publisher with 'fond memories'. Verlaine died aged 51 after abusing drugs and alcohol, particularly absinthe, for many years. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
