        Fire and Sword in the Sudan.

      London: Edward Arnold,, 1896. A Personal Narrative of Fighting and Serving the Dervishes. 1879-1895. Translated by Major F. R. Wingate. Octavo. Original dark red cloth, gilt lettered spine, pictorial gilt block on front cover, top edges gilt. Portrait frontispiece, 21 plates, 2 folding maps. A few marks to binding, touch of foxing to title. Presentation copy of the third edition, the same year as the first, inscribed by author on the half-title: "To General George W. Wingate, with best compliments from the author, R. Slatin. Merano 4/III [1]928". This is almost certainly George Wood Wingate (1840–1928), an American lawyer who served in a New York regiment during the Civil War and later as a general in the National Guard; he may have been related to the book's translator, F. R. Wingate. Merano (or Meran) is a spa resort in South Tyrol, northern Italy. Perhaps both men were "taking the waters" there at the time the book was presented. "Slatin's career in the Sudan covered thirty-six eventful years. He started in January 1879 in the finance department as an inspector with the rank of a bimbashi (the Turkish equivalent of a major). Later that year he was appointed governor of Dara, in south-western Darfur, and after less than a year became governor-general of the whole province. In his major publication Fire and Sword in the Sudan (1896) Slatin was vague about his duties in Darfur. However, his life as governor-general was soon disrupted by Muhammad Ahmad ibn 'Abdullahi, who in June 1881 declared himself the Mahdi of the Sudan. Soon the Mahdi and his followers (ansar) escaped from Aba Island, on the White Nile, to the Nuba Mountains and Slatin became actively involved in the uprising … Fire and Sword in the Sudan was published in English in 1896 and was dedicated to Queen Victoria. Its impact on public opinion in Europe was greater than Wingate had expected. It appeared in numerous editions until 1935, and was translated into German, Italian, French, and Arabic" (ODNB).

        THE JUGGLER AND THE SOUL ..

      London: Skeffington & Son, 1896.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-2] 3-219 [220] [note: first leaf is a blank], title page printed in red and black, original decorated blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red and white, floral patterned endpapers. First edition. A novel mixing the macabre and fantastic in an exploration of the relations between body and soul, life and death; it belongs certainly to the "mad scientist" sub-genre. A scientist has mastered the ability of bringing the dead back to life with blood transfusions. In his laboratory he is assisted by "a gigantic deaf and dumb Negro" and by two trainees, Arthur and Jasper (respectively sympathetic and sinister) who vie for the favor of the fifth player in the story, a lovely young woman, Ninga, daughter of an old friend of the scientist who can no longer take care of her and has sent her to live with the scientist. Ninga chooses Arthur, which arouses the maddened jealousy of Jasper, who murders Arthur, trying to make the opening of his artery look like suicide. But the Negro happens onto the scene and, after chloroforming Jasper, transfuses his blood into the body of the dead Arthur, killing Jasper in the process -- but also transferring his nasty personality into the body of Arthur. In Mathers' THE SIN OF HAGAR, published the same year, the author showed an interest in a similar situation: a wicked old man making occult experiments on an innocent young woman. Bleiler (1978), p. 135. Reginald 09800. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 153. A bright, very good copy of an uncommon book. (#147938)

        DEBORAH - The Advanced Woman

      Arena Publishing Company, Boston 1896 - 233, (4) pages; Clean and secure in original light blue cloth binding with gilt lettering at spine and decorative gilt stampingto front cover. OCLC: 777089259 Mary Ives Todd was born on Dec 23, 1849 in Eddyville, Iowa, the daughter of Mr. Homer D. Ives and Mary Eastman Ives, both early settlers in Iowa; the one a lawyer and the other a teacher. Mary Todd was western-bred, with the exception of a short period spent with an uncle while attending an eastern seminary. [Local and National Poets of America] Mrs. Todd was a New Woman writer, a suffragist, and a member of the Southern California Women's Press Club. When this book (her first) was published in 1896, Mrs. Todd was residing in Italy where her daughter was undertaking the serious study of music. This novel is a story of Utah in the early Mormon days wherein plural marriages are considered; the heroine is a noble character. Religious difficulties with her husband, furnished the motive for "Deborah," a book in which she advocated certain modifications in divorce laws. The novel was written in part "for the purpose of asserting woman's coequality with man, and aiding in her release from that subjection to man's use and passion which has been her lot for ages." The author planned this as the first in a trilogy of novels treating the nature of wedlock. The second volume titled The Heterodox Marriage of the New Woman and the proposed third book The Orthodox Marriage of the New Woman. Published in 1898, The Heterodox Marriage of a New Woman celebrated the marriage of a heroine that was performed outside the Christian tradition and even outside accepted legal practice. The heroine Rae and her fiancé Paul "marry themselves by each repeating part of the Quaker contract. ‘They don't approve of church or state marriages.'" The third novel seems not to have been accomplished, but her 1908 novel An American Madonna: A Story of Love issues "a passionate endorsement of nontraditional (legally and religiously unsanctioned) marriage." "Just Friends, A Common Sense Story" is a story about Thomas Paine published later in 1908 followed in 1912 by American Paradise: A Sequel to American Madonna which appears to have been her last book published. Mary Ives Todd was afflicted with repeated difficulties with unscrupulous publishers resulting in siginificant financial setbacks. Last word of her, she resided in a tenement in New York and was contemplating returning to her husband Dr. Baxter Todd in Los Angeles, California. It appears Mrs. Todd died sometime between 1910 and 1920. Wright , American Fiction, III - #5505. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Oriental Ceramic Art : illustrated by examples from the Collection of W. T. Walters

      New York. D Appleton & Co., New York 1896 - Limited/Numbered. Louis Prang. Atlas Folio - over 23" - 25" tall. Silk backed boards in protective cloth covers. Very Good. 429 pages, 116 chromolithographic plates by Louis Prang and over 400 black and white illustrations. 10 volumes in total. Limited edition of 500 copies stated, this set numbered 14. (Please read below for more information regarding the number of copies actually printed!) Each volume lavishly bound in yellow decorative boards and backed with yellow silk as issued. Original cloth protective covers (5 in total as issued) made of green cloth with silk bands, dark red ropes with Ivory handles (2 ivory handles attached, 6 ropes with Ivory handles loose and 2 missing ). The protective covers each hold two volumes and are lined with original burgandy leather in the spine. Condition of the 10 volumes is wonderful: No foxing; clean and bright; minor wear to extremeties, some wear to the cloth covers; all tissue guards with accompanying text of chromolithogaphic plates in tact and clean. One of the rarest and perhaps most sumptuous catalogues ever produced on Oriental ceramics. The emphasis of the work is on the ceramics of China, describing imperial wares as well as export wares, but also has sections on Japan and Korea. It was written and compiled by Stephen Wooton Bushell, the physician to the British legation in Peking who made ceramics his avocation and absorbed and translated many of the Chinese works on this and allied subjects. Walters invited the young physician to his home in Baltimore and persuaded him to write a history of Oriental ceramics incorporating information gleaned from his translations and illustrating the text with porcelains in the Walters collection. Ironically, Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) had initially hoped to publish the history and reported to his partner, Charles Webster, that the Baltimorean was prepared to pay a quarter of a million dollars for the project and that the publisher would be allowed to retain the profits (Johnston, W.R.; William and Henry Walters The Reticent Collectors). The accuracy of the illustrations was of overriding concern to Walters. He eventually chose to have Louis Prang of Roxbury, Massachusetts to provide the lithographs. Prang’s firm specialised in chromo’s of paintings by American landscape painters and in Christmas cards. Although Prang was given carte blanche in regard to expenses, nothing would be accepted that could not pass Walters severest criticism. Walters wanted pure and realistic perfection! The artists chosen to execute the preliminary watercolours, James Callowhill and his 3 sons, were members of a large English family that had been associated with the Royal Worcester Porcelain works and were known for their Japanese and Chinese inspired designs. Walters provided them with accommodations in his house and converted the second-floor library into their studio, with the window facing north for the light. The Callowhills frequently recorded reflections of the buildings across the square as highlights on the glazed surfaces of the porcelains. The Prang plates have been acknowledged as masterpieces in the art of colour lithography. To capture the nuances in tone and the glossiness of the glazes, Prang used as many as 32 lithographic stones for each plate. Overall, 2000 stones were employed in the project. William, r. Johnston, biographer of Walters and his son, Henry, states that although a limited edition of 500 copies were intended, it is unlikely that more than 200 sets were actually produced! Commenced in about 1879, it took over 15 years to complete this massive catalogue that is considered to be the highlight in the history of American 19th century printing. Unfortunately William Walters died 2 years before its completion never seeing the end result. Almost all copies were given to major institutions, heads of state and friends of W.T. Walters and quickly disappeared from the market. Today, original sets rarely are offered for sale and seldom are [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [Lyon: Freres Lumière, 1896. Small 4to., (4) pp. Printed on a thick woven stock in blue ink with gold border rules and decorations. Moderate toning and light foxing, with evidence of a prior horizontal fold. Very good. Enclosed in a four point pamphlet case of paper over boards with a printed title on the upper board and spine. The Lumière brothers presented their first public viewing of several of their films on 28 December, 1895 at the Salon Indien du Grand Café, Paris. The public approval was quick and within weeks the Lumières dispatched "operators" to Lyon, London, Madrid and other European cities. The cover title of this program is in Italian while the "Programme des Projections" is in French and lists screenings in Lyon, Paris, London, Milan Venice, etc., naming particular films for each location, as well as several which were shown at every screening. By July of 1896, Pierre Chapuis, a 17 year old operator from Lyon was dispatched to Milan to present a series of Lumière films which included one of their first, "Repas du Bébé", and the monumental, "Pellicules du Couronnement du Czar", the first feature length film made in Russia, 14 May, 1896, with its public release on 26 June 1896. From the known dates of release of several of these films at particular locations, ( see, Rittaud-Hutinet, Jacques. AUGUSTE ET LOUIS LUMIÈRE: LES 1000 PREMIERS FILMS. Introduction by Philippe Nèagu. (Paris): Philippe Sers éditeur, 1990), the imprint, "Milano - Tip. Economica", and the arrival of Pierre Chapuis in Milan, we can establish the date of this program as no later than July, 1896. No copies of this program, can be located in WorldCat or other catalogues. It is our assumption that this is the earliest surviving program for a public screening by the Lumières.

        Faune 4 , étude de tête de femme

      1896. Crayon sur papier Circa 1896, 21 x 32 cm. - Crayon sur papier Circa 1896, 21 x 32 cm. - Disegno a matita originale. Firma timbro firma dell'artista nell'angolo in basso a destra del lavoro, e la firma timbro del laboratorio sul retro. Molto bella condizione. Provenienza: studio dell'artista, fa riferimento al catalogo Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny nato nel 1861 e morto a Parigi nel 1932, è un importante pittore francese. Ha iniziato la sua carriera con artisti d'avanguardia come Vincent van Gogh e Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Con Émile Bernard, egli è l'inventore del cloisonnisme. Dal 1884-1893, Louis Anquetin continua ad esplorare nuove opportunità introdotte dal rilascio di Impressionismo in pittura francese. Dal 1893, dopo un lungo confronto con i "vecchi maestri", egli adotta una pittorica pregiudizio che schiererà il movimento artistico in generale, e portare via dai suoi amici. Abbagliato dalla arte barocca e la sua forza creativa, così pensa i suoi amici d'infanzia sono stati coinvolti in un percorso che porta alla morte della pittura. Crede in un "quadro perfetto", che si incarna nelle re-ricordare le lezioni di Michelangelo e Rubens, tra gli altri. Il suo lavoro diventa più convenzionale, ha sostenuto un ritorno al business, offrendo a riflettere sulle condizioni a priori di ogni possibile forma d'arte secondo le regole della prospettiva e dell'anatomia, come praticato dai maestri XVI e XVII secolo. Lasciando solo alcune opere che possono essere descritte come monumentale, Anquetin gira prolifico con i suoi numerosi studi e bozzetti, che ha ritenuto che il progetto è stato "un mezzo molto potente mezzo di espressione" fondamento obbligatoria di tutte le arti plastiche. Lavorare volontariamente il conto alla rovescia del suo tempo, Louis Anquetin reso possibile l'esistenza di una figurazione moderna originale. Con la sua ostinazione e la sua passione per la pittura, ha infatti impedito è completamente chiuso la strada alla grande tradizione occidentale. Si possono ammirare le sue opere in numerosi musei prestigiosi come il Musée d'Orsay e il Louvre di Parigi, San Francisco e Detroit, il Museo dell'Ermitage di San Pietroburgo, la National Gallery e la Tate Londra, ecc.

One of Her Majesty's Counsel.) Small 8vo., 7 1/4 x 5", 183pp.+catalogue. Dark blue Macmillian's "Golden Treasury" cloth, title, etc. gilt on spine, blind stamped ruled borders on covers. Minor rubbing or wear to edges, top & bottom of spine,slight fading to spine, rubbing to corners. Old rather fragile paper shows tanning of margins, small tear to bottom of p. 11, a few finger marks, 1 ink check mark noted. On titlepage at top in ink: J. F. Bayard (or Mayend ?) London Oct '96. Overall, a near fine copy of a very fragile & scarce book. Birrell (1850-1933), studied law at Cambridge & from 1896 to 1899 was Quain Professor of Law in London. This title was published by Macmillan's in New York in 1897 (the U. S. first edition); there were editions to about 1920. The Golden Treasury type of binding is attractive but doesn't age well, especially in a title that was meant to be read & studied. Birrell is also remembered for his many essays, fine literary biographies & sketches (Frederick Locker-Lampson amongst them) & literary criticism. Quite a rare book in this well-preserved condition.

        Moko; or Maori Tattooing.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1896. 4to. xxi, 216 pp. b/w photo frontispiece; halftone and line ills. Robley, a military man, had studied tattooing when stationed in Burma, and was tattooed himself. In the 1860s his regiment went to New Zealand and was engaged in the New Zealand Land Wars. During this time he became fascinated with Maori society and the practice of tattooing. When he retired in the 1880s he wrote two books on his time in New Zealand. This one is a study of Maori tattooing as well as the dried tattooed heads known as Mokomokai, which are covered in considerable detail, complete with illustrations and explanations of techniques for drying heads. Supposedly he had quite a collection of shrunken head himself. Robley's book is a classic, and scarce in the trade. Hocken p. 436, who says, "A full history and the methods of tatu are given, with scores of patterns as examples." This copy is ex library, with perforated library stamp on title page. It is complete, but disbound, in a clamshell box with the original decorated cover laid down on the front of the box.

        An Outcast of the Islands. [Together with] Free Rum on the Congo and What It Is Doing There.

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1896 - 2 works, octavo. An Outcast of the Islands: original green cloth, titles to spine and top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. Housed in green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Free Rum on the Congo and What It Is Doing There: original red cloth, title to front cover and spine gilt, black rules to front cover, floral endpapers, all edges marbled. Binding a little rubbed and marked, endpapers tanned. A very good copy. First edition, first impression of An Outcast of the Islands, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Mr. W. T. Hornaday with the Author's most friendly regards. 22 March, 1896". Hornaday (1854–1937) was an American zoologist and conservationist who is credited with the preservation of a number of species including the North American bison. He helped found the Smithsonian National Zoo and in 1896 was made the director of the New York Zoological Park. Hornaday was the author of ten books, and one of his earliest published works was Free Rum on the Congo and What It Is Doing There (1887), a copy of which accompanies the present item. His work subsequently appeared alongside Conrad's in American literary magazines. How Hornaday and Conrad met is apparently unrecorded but their paths may have first crossed in Malaysia during the 1880s. The inscription is dated two days before Conrad's wedding in London. The publication of the Outcast had been delayed owing to a fire which destroyed the printer's stereo-plates, and the book came out on 4 March 1896. Conrad sent out the first copies on 10 March. Contemporary presentation copies of Conrad's early novels are rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
