        Verses and Sonnets.

      London, Ward and Downey, 1896 - 12mo. Original green cloth,titles to spine gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmd. With the original unprinted tissue dust jacket. A little browning to the endpapers but a fine copy. The tissue jacket is has some minor loss at the head of the spine panel. First Edition First Impression of the author's first book. Apparently part of the edition was recalled after Mrs Belloc recognized some portrait or other of aspects of her life in some of the verse. This book is not rare in any absolute sense but copies as nice as this one turn up perhaps once a decade at most. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Narrative of James Murrells ' ("Jemmy Morrill") Seventeen Years' Exile among the wild blacks of North Queensland,and his life and shipwreck and terrible adventures among savage tribes; their manners, customs, languages, and superstitions; also Murrells' rescue and return to civilization

      Brisbane: Edmund Gregory, 1896. Small octavo, 45 pp., two photographic reproductions, first very toned but the paper otherwise good; original printed blue paper wrappers, very worn at the spine; preserved in a silk-lined green morocco box by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. 17 years with the Aborigines of North Queensland. Rare 19th-century edition of an important account of the shipwreck of James Murrells and the subsequent seventeen years he spent living with an Aboriginal tribe near Mount Elliott on the Queensland coast south of Townsville. First published in 1863, this 1896 edition has an interesting foreword by the editor and Government Printer of Brisbane, Edmund Gregory. 'In 1846, the ship {i Peruvian }was wrecked on her way from Sydney to China. A raft conducted seven of the survivors to the shore near Cape Cleveland. Three died before they had been landed a fortnight. The others were then discovered by the blacks. When both sides had recovered their mutual astonishment and alarm, they made each other's acquaintance. The natives appeared to have treated them with kindness and consideration… After seventeen years wandering with the blacks, he eventually (in 1863) approached the fence of a sheep-yard… and, upon being challenged by the settlers, was able to find words to the effect that he was a shipwrecked seaman. His story was obtained from him with great difficulty, owing to his reticence. Examined by the Police Magistrate of Rockhampton "he contented himself with monosyllabic replies, and augmented rather than satisfied the thirst of his audience for information".' (Ferguson).

        The Suppression of the African Slave-Trade to the United States of America 1638-1870

      New York: Longmans, Green & Company. 1896. First. First edition. 335pp. A bookplate on the front pastedown, tiny tears at the spine ends, and the front hinge slightly cracked, still a tight and attractive, near fine copy of an exceptionally scarce title. Publisher's slip tipped in (about the price of the book). Du Bois's first book, a commercially published version of his doctoral dissertation (Harvard at the time did not have an incorporated university press) which the scholar had taken great pains to transform from dry historical facts into readable prose. Du Bois went considerably further than any previous researcher to examine real data and document the exact rate of importation of enslaved Africans from 1619 onwards. Most importantly, Du Bois built a strong case for American complicity (both Southern and Northern) in the traffic of slaves well after the 1808 Constitutional ban on the maritime slave traffic. The book remains a model of historic research and writing, and demonstrated that even as a student Du Bois had a unique ability to focus public attention on critical issues by combining history, sociology, and accessible morality. A rare keystone of African-American scholarship and literature. .

        CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS A Story of the Grand Banks

      London,: Pearson's Magazine. Handsomely bound in 3/4 reddish-brown niger morocco, t.e.g.. 1896 to 1897. 1st edition. hb. Slim 8vo, 85 pp. . Written when Kipling was but 31, and not long married to the sister of his American agent, this is his only book to be set entirely in America. This unique item contains the December, 1896; and the January to April, 1897 parts of Pearson's Magazine which constituted the first appearance in print of Kipling's famous novella. The first book publication was by Macmillan (London), later in 1897, with 21 illustrations by I. W. Taber. The first American book publication was also in 1897 by The Century Co. (New York City). This true first printing also contains 16 illustrations by I. W. Taber, as well as an additional 21 illustrations by Fred T. Jane (the founder of "Jane's Fighting Ships "), and two by Swain. The five parts are bound without any preliminary leaves, containing 85 pages from the magazine. The binding is by Sandorski and Sutcliffe, of London. The spine is in compartments with delicate gilt lettering and the date 1896-7 at bottom. The leather of the front board is a bit spotted, more so near the top than elsewhere, and the top of the hinge is rubbed. The boards are also slightly bumped. The front free endpaper shows the remains of stamp hinges where the former owner has hinged his bookplate and some auction notices of this book. There are four small spots to the rear endpaper, of no particular consequence. The contents are generally clean, if slightly edge-worn. Overall, the book is in very good condition, in a most attractive binding. Martindell 68. .

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire. Année complète 1896.

      Bureaux de la Revue 1896 - - Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1896, 15x24,5cm. - Edition originale.Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline saumon, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue.Onze numéros de janvier à novembre 1896. Couvertures conservées.Contributions littéraires de André Gide ("Ménalque"), Maurice Barrès, Octave Uzanne, Francis Jammes, Pierre Louÿs, Henri Ghéon, etc.Le numéro de février rend hommage à Paul Verlaine, disparu un mois auparavant. Un beau portrait du poète sur son lit de mort d'après un dessin de Noé Legrand.Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

Thirty-six octavo volumes (8 1/2 x 5 5/8 inches; 216 x 142 mm.). Frontispiece to first volume. Armorial bookplate of Louise G.

A handsome set."Ah, Meredith! Who can define him? His style is chaos illumined by flashes of lightning" (Oscar Wilde). His signature is extremely rare; lightning strikes this initialed set."The Memorial Edition of the Works of George Meredith. is the standard edition" (Encyclopedia Britannica).Victorian novelist George Meredith's (1828-1909) writing was characterized by a fascination with imagery and indirect references. He had a keen understanding of comedy and his Essay on Comedy (1877) is still quoted in most discussions of the history of comic theory. In The Egoist, published in 1879, he applies some of his theories of comedy in one of his most enduring novels. Some of his writings, including The Egoist, also highlight the subjection of women during the Victorian period. During most of his career, he had difficulty achieving popular success. His first truly successful novel was Diana of the Crossways published in 1885. His first big novel, The Ordeal of Richard Feverel, was judged so shocking that Mudie's circulating library canceled an order of 300 copies. Meredith was richly honored: he succeeded Lord Tennyson as president of the Society of Authors, and in 1905 he was appointed to the Order of Merit by King Edward VII.

        A Handbook of Bandy, or Hockey on the Ice

      London: Horace Cox. 1896. First. First edition. Gray cloth boards ruled in black and titled in gilt. 57,(3),(4 ads)pp. Frontispiece photograph, line drawings and diagrams throughout. Moderate soiling, else a very pleasing, near fine copy. While other books on winter sports discuss hockey and bandy, this is the very first book solely devoted to hockey. Inscribed on the front pastedown: "R.H. White from C.G. Tebbutt. Jan 1896." The sports ice hockey and bandy (which usually has larger teams, and rules that in some ways emulate soccer) were mostly synonymous at the time, although the game we are familiar with today evolved away from bandy to follow the Canadian rules. The Tebbutt family, Arnold, Neville, and Charles Goodman, all contributed to this book, although Arnold is given pride of place as author on the title-page. Of the three, C.G., who inscribed this copy, was probably the most influential: he introduced hockey into Sweden in 1894, and also organized the first international Bandy match, in 1891 between English and Dutch teams. A rare book, neither OCLC nor RLIN records a copy, and we have never seen another. .

        Büste einer Frau mit dunklem hochgestecktem Haar im Profil nach links.

      . Kohle und Farbstifte, teils gewischt, Pinsel in Grau, auf braunem Velin, rechts unten signiert "J. L. Groppe.". 48,1:48,2 cm. In der Ecke rechts unten Knickfalte, im Rand rechts kleiner Einriß, verso in den Rändern alte Verklebung, mit Bereibungen im oberen Drittel des Blattes. Das Bildnis führt uns vor Augen, daß die Künstlerin neben der korrekten Erfassung anatomischer Gegebenheiten auch virtuos den Charakter der Dargestellten einzufangen wußte.. Auch über die Malerin, Graphikerin und Gebrauchskünstlerin Johanna Luise Groppe ist nur wenig bekannt. Ihr Studium absolvierte sie seit 1896 in ihrer Geburtstadt bei J. Alberts (1860-1941), dann in München bei G. Schuster-Woldan (1864-1933). Sie beteiligte sich an Ausstellungen im Münchner Glaspalast 1904, 1907, 1919 und 1921 sowie 1908 an der Großen Ausstellung in Berlin. Vermutlich unternahm sie eine Reise nach Rom, wo u.a. Kopien nach Raffael, Landschaftsbilder und Genrestücke entstanden. Ihre Hauptthemen waren darüber hinaus Figurenbilder, Akt, Porträt und Stilleben. Sie war Mitglied in verschiedenen Vereinigungen wie Künstlerinnen-Verein München und Reichsverband bildender Künstler Deutschlands, Berlin.

        The Natives of Sarawak and British North Borneo

      London: Truslove & Hanson, , 1896. Based chiefly on the MSS. of the late Hugh Brooke Low, Sarawak Government Service. With a Preface by Andrew Lang. 2 volumes, large octavo. Original green "crazed" cloth, blind panels to the boards, title gilt to upper board and spine, top edge gilt, chocolate brown surface-paper endpapers. Numerous illustrations, many of them full-page, one coloured, one folding, folding map at the rear of Volume I. The lightest of shelf-wear, hinges remain uncracked, a very good set indeed. First edition "limited to 700 for sale." In his introduction Roth explains the origins of this work; "Some years ago my friend, Prof. E. B. Tylor, FRS, placed in my hands a parcel of MSS, the writing of which was so fine and obliterated that I was obliged throughout to use a strong magnifying glass in order to be able to read it. The papers, which were largely written in pencil, were partly destroyed by moisture and by insects. These very incomplete MSS. were the posthumous papers of an eccentric young gentleman named Hugh Brooke Low, who, however, possessed a very intimate knowledge of the natives… He was the son of Mr. (now Sir) Hugh Low, Secretary to the Governor of Labuan… Hugh was born at Labuan on the 12th May, 1849… He was sent home at an early age and received his education partly in Germany, and partly in England… He failed to pass the examination for the Indian Civil Service in 1869, and accepted an appointment which was offered to him by the present Raja of Sarawak, Sir Charles Brooke, G.C.M.G. He died in London on the 12th July, 1887… During the eighteen years of his service under the Government of Sarawak, he was stationed principally on the Rejang river, which gave him great opportunities of studying the Dyak and Kayan races inhabiting the banks of this noble river, but he had also experience of many other parts of the territory of the Raja of Sarawak, and his death was much regretted by their Highnesses the Raja and Ranee of Sarawak and by all the native tribes with whom he had so long been in close contact." Roth himself had already published an ethnographical study on the peasantry of Russia and his "compassionate, encyclopaedic work" (DAB) The Aborigines of Tasmania. The Natives of Sarawak was considered the standard work well into the twentieth century and remains an important contribution, and an extremely handsome piece of turn-of-the-century book production.

        Illustrations of Japanese Life, Vol. I & II (98 B&W Collotype Plates)

      Kelly & Walsh, Tokyo 1896 - Collotype plates by K. Ogawa and by descriptions by S. Takashima, 8vo (7 1/8 x 10 in - 18 x 25.7 cm), 32 plates (Vol I) + 68 plates (Vol II), black and white collotypes on crepe paper, bound Japanese style and silk thread ties. Each plate has a title and generally a paragraph of descriptive information written by S. Takashima. While the image areas vary slightly, the norm is 6~7 x 4 1/2~5 in. This is one in a series of photographic album type books under this same title published by K. Ogawa. The four books with the same title, each containing 12 color collotype plates, are seen much more frequently than this set. The two books in this set have a volume number printed on the cover. This is not the case with the four 12 plate books. ~ Condition . I would rate the books as in Good condition. The covers of both books are in Poor condition. The covers of Vol I are complete but worn and stained. The crepe paper is rolling over at the edges and there are numerous tears and creases, primarily along the edges. The covers on Vol II are in Fair (bad) condition. The front cover is complete but has considerable staining, creasing and tears. Additionally, the crepe paper is rolling over at the edges. The back cover is in tatters with pieces missing. The preliminary blank pages of Vol II have water staining. Internally the books are in Good+ condition. The collotype plates are clean and free of problems in the image area. These two books are a good candidate for rebinding. ~~ More information, including a listing of all plates, available on request. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
