        Advice to Young Anglers

      [New York: William Mills & Son], 1896. First edition. 38 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Printed tan wrappers. Sewn. Small snag at top of spine, with small chip, else fine. First edition. 38 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Amusing comments on various aspects of angling and camping. Carleton was a journalist, the managing editor of the old "Life" magazine for which he wrote the humorous "Thompson Street Poker Club" papers. He was also a successful playwright: his play "The Butterflies", featuring John Drew, made Maude Adams a star. In this book, distributed by a fishing tackle firm, he states, "If the few little precepts I have given can be of any use to the young anglers who will read them, I shall be glad. They have been of no use to me.". Not in Bruns, Sheets, Wetzel

Mittheilung". - Nach Würzburg zurückgekehrt, wendet sich Röntgen der Erforschung der Kathodenstrahlen zu. Hier gelingt ihm am Abend des 8. November 1895 seine epochemachende Entdeckung: Während des Experimentierens mit der Hittorf-Crookesschen Röhre beobachtet er das Fluoreszieren eines mit Bariumplatinzyanid bestrichenen Schirms, obwohl die Röhre mit einem schwarzen Karton völlig abgedeckt war. Er schließt daraus auf eine neue Art von Strahlung, deren große Durchdringungsfähigkeit ihn auf den Gedanken bringt, den absorbierenden Körper durch die eigene Hand und den Schirm durch eine photographische Platte zu ersetzen. Diese und andere physikalische Eigenschaften beschreibt er in seinen beiden Mitteilungen. Für seine Entdeckung erhält er 1901, als erster Physiker überhaupt, den Nobelpreis für Physik. - PMM 380; Dibner 162; Sparrow 171; Garrison-Morton 2683. - Beigebunden: - Levy, Max.

        JUDE THE OBSCURE

      1896. With an Etching by H. Macbeth-­Raeburn and a Map of Wessex. (London:) James R. Osgood, McIlvaine & Co., (1896). Original dark blue-green cloth with monogram device in gilt. First Edition of Hardy's last great novel, issued as Vol. VIII of "The Wessex Novels." Titled HEARTS INSURGENT at the time of its serial appearance, the book was ahead of its time; the depiction of Jude and his cousin Sue settling down together and having two children (though unmarried) was too much for the 1890s public. After JUDE (and due in part to the outcry over it), Hardy was to spend his remaining 30+ years writing only verse.~In this copy, the last pages of chapters are numbered only in gatherings "B" plus "E"-through-"H". Some copies have such pages numbered in "A" through "H", but in most copies, as here, some but not all of the first eight gatherings have numbered pages, presumably as later sheets were gradually altered to conform to the latter part of the book (they are never numbered in gatherings "I" onward).~This is a very good-plus copy, perhaps near-fine (spine cloth slightly wrinkled, a touch of wear at the corners, endpapers slightly cracked). Purdy pp 86-91.

        Manuscript Journal of an Imperial German Marine Volunteer, Recournting His Numerous Voyages, China, Japan, Russia, the Phillipines, Brazil and Patagonia, Over a Period of Seven Years.

      Kiel [Northern Germany], 1896-1899., 1896. Fair copy manuscript account written by Johann Heinrich Hermann Neubauer (born 1874) who was a volunteer in the German Imperial Navy, recounting his numerous voyages and service in vast corners of the globe including China, Japan, Russia, the Phillipines, Brazil and Patagonia, over a period of seven years, looking back to his naval training in April 1892 and leading up to December 1899. Especially captivating are the descriptions of China and South America. With frontis portrait photograph of the writer in navy attire, taken in Nagasaki, and manuscript dedication to adjacent leaf dated 18 December 1896 when he began the work. Text is in German. With tipped-in manuscript message by a Navy Captain on the stationery of the SMS Gefion pertaining to 13 July 1896, and a tipped-in German newspaper printed in Tsingtao 29 March 1899. 8vo. 271 in manuscript. Brown cloth boards, original endpapers. Significant wear to tipped-in newspaper, volume lacks spine, otherwise very good condition, internally crisp and bright, a pleasing naval memoire in a fine hand, centered largely on China. German imperialism is the distinct theme in this manuscript volume, which features naval service during the occupation of Kiautschou Bay, and foremost German colonial influence over Tsingtao as its primary East Asia trading and naval post, while offering detailed observations of the Tsingtao in particular. Up and coming German colonies in Brazil also appear in the journal as the writer served on a vessel sent to quell the Brazilian Naval Revolts (Revoltas da Armada) in Rio de Janeiro in 1893. A voyage was further made to Manila in an effort to secure German colonial possessions in the Philippines. Replete with adventure as he sailed around the world observing and participating in colonial Germany's foreign expansion and commerce, particularly in China. Following a briefing of his earliest voyages, some twenty-five pages describe his adventures with SMS Alexandrine in South America. In 1893 this vessel was sent to Brazil where the Revolta da Armada (Revolt of the Fleet), though not a direct attack, did threaten German interests. Continuing with SMS Alexandrine, the writer would find himself in Japan, the ship and her captain being commissioned to monitor the First Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895. . Inscribed and Signed By Author. Manuscript.

        The Savoy An Illustrated Quarterly

      The name Savoy was borrowed from the new London hotel and was intended to be suggestive of modernity and opulence.The Savoy was a magazine of literature, art, and criticism published in eight numbers from January to December 1896 in London. It featured work by authors such as W. B. Yeats, Max Beerbohm, Joseph Conrad, Aubrey Beardsley and Leonard Smithers, a controversial friend of Oscar Wilde who was also known as a pornographer. Among other publications by Smithers were rare erotic works and unique items such as books bound in human skinThe Savoy was founded as a competitor to The Yellow Book and to provide work for members of the Decadent movement as it began to decline with the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde.[2] The magazine was started by Leonard Smithers, writer Arthur Symons (The Symbolist Movement In Literature) and artist Aubrey Beardsley. It is considered a little magazine, and was described as "a manifesto in revolt against Victorian materialism".[3] The name was inspired by the Savoy Hotel, a glamorous hotel in London which opened in 1889 and became infamous for being the location for Oscar Wilde's trysts.[4]Hubert Crackanthorpe tried to convince Grant Richards to join him in buying The Savoy but the plan never came to fruition. The magazine folded in December 1896 with its eighth issue.[5] In the final issue, Symons considered its failure:

        Montgomery Ward and CO. Catalogue and Buyers' Guide, Fall and Winter 1896 - 1897, No. 60

      Montgomery Ward & Co. 1896 - Original Montgomery Ward mail order catalogue. 5th ed, published Sept. 1896. Publisher's color wraps. Spine curled, a few scuffs to edge. Small chip missing from left corner of front cover, a few tears along cover edge. Small "Albert P. Fisks" stamp on cover.

A few color plates showing samples. "Montgomery Ward was founded by Aaron Montgomery Ward in 1872. Ward had conceived of the idea of a dry goods mail-order business in Chicago, Illinois, after several years of working as a traveling salesman among rural customers. He observed that rural customers often wanted "city" goods but their only access to them was through rural retailers who had little competition and did not offer any guarantee of quality. Ward also believed that by eliminating intermediaries, he could cut costs and make a wide variety of goods available to rural customers, who could purchase goods by mail and pick them up at the nearest train station." In 1896 the US post office started to offer free rural delivery. This led to expansion of the mail order business. - Smithsonian [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Da Cecilia Metella a Ponte Salario 1896 - 1897. Note della Baronessa di Munchausen. Fotografie di Pietro Sbisà. Prefazione di Gabriele d'Annunzio.

      Album con copertina originale in tela rossa e titolo in oro (cm. 15,7x25,5); pp. 78 nn. Complessivamente 36 immagini fotografiche tutte inerenti alla caccia alla volpe nell'Agro Romano a piena pagina + altre immagini fotografiche di formato più piccolo. L'album pubblicato nel 1897 probabilmente in forma privata per i partecipanti alla caccia è dedicato al Marchese Luciano di Roccagiovine Capocaccia, con una bellissima prefazione di Gabriele d'Annunzio: "Al caro Master, non v'è al mondo poesia che uguaglia di profondità e di altezza questa dell'Agro, e in nessuna ora io mi sono sentito vivere d'una vita così intensa , così pura e così libera come quando il vostro -Tally ho!- più secco e più risoluto d'un colpo di frusta o di un colpo di speroni lanciava il mio cavallo su una di quelle vaste solitudini fiorite, in fondo a cui sorge l'aspra maceria che la volpe incalzata dai cani sorpassa allungandosi contro le pietre vivida e agile come una fiamma fulva. Non mai, quanto allora, io mi son sentito della medesima razza di quel Claudio Cantelmo che a cavallo per l'Agro attingeva la suprema ebrezza aspirando dalle gramigne putride l'odore della morte...". Il testo della Baronessa di Munchausen è suddiviso in giornate di caccia: 23 Novembre 1896, Tre Fontane; 28 Novembre 1896, Coazzo; 1 dicembre, Centocelle... 15 marzo, Ponte Salario. Affascinante resoconto di caccia alla volpe nell'Agro Romano alla fine dell'Ottocento. Axs

        Effi Briest. Roman.

      Bln Fontane 1896 - 2 Bll., 520 S. OLn. m. Dverg. (leicht berieben, Kanten u. Kapitale fast unmerklich fachfraulich restauriert). Erste Ausgabe. Wilp./G. 41. Nicht bei Schobeß . KLL 2984. - Begonnen 1890 erschien der Roman in 2 Teilen zunächst in der Deutschen Rundschau (1894/95). - Die Geschichte der Effi Briest, die jung verheiratet wird, jedoch nicht mit dem Eheleben zufrieden ist, zeitweilig mit einem Liebhaber liiert ist, den jedoch ihr Mann nach Bekanntwerden der Affäre im Duell erschießt. Effi lebt schließlich getrennt von Ihrem Mann und halb geächtet von der Familie. Erst kurz vor ihrem Tod holen die Eltern Effi endlich heim, wo sie in Frieden stirbt. - "Fontane erzählt die Geschichte Effi Briests fast im Plauderton, ohne Pathos und mit liebenswürdiger Ironie. Der Dialog ist mit naturalistischer Lebensnähe und zugleich Lebenswärme geführt; (.) für den ganzen Roman und die Erzählweise Fontanes überhaupt gilt: das, was in den Redenden und Handelnden vorgeht, was sich entwickelt und was entschieden wird, ist nicht eigentlich Gegenstand des Gesprochenen oder Erzählten, sondern deutet sich in ihm nur an; so auch die für die Romanhandlung bestimmenden Beziehungen zwischen Effi und [dem Geliebten] Crampas: Effis lange, einsame Spaziergänge, ihr verändertes Wesen und Aussehen - viel mehr erfährt der Leser nicht. Und doch geht gerade von solchen Passagen eine überaus starke Wirkung aus. Sie machen das traumhafte, fast unbewußte Hineingleiten Effis in ihr Schicksal erst ganz begreiflich." (KLL). - Vorsätze und Innengelenke um 1959 erneuert bzw. restauriert, vord. Vorsatz mit Kauf- und Datumsvermerk in Tinte. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
