        Jeanne d'Arc.

      1896 1Paris, Plon, Nourrit & Cie, 1896, 36.5 x 47 cm, in-folio oblong, en feuilles, planches montées sur Marie-Louise encadrées d'un triple filets réhaussé d'un bandeau coquille d'oeuf, estampé à froid de fleurs de lys aux écoinçons, sous coffret cartonné. Le cycle de Jeanne d'Arc reste le plus connu de tous les travaux de Maurice BOUTET de MONVEL. Il en commence les illustrations du cycle johannique en 1894. Les tons vifs rappellent les enluminures médiévales. Il réalise une très belle mise en scène et mise en page en jouant avec les couleurs, ce qui lui permet d'augmenter le caractère oppressant des scènes de bataille ou dans la scène de supplice. Il utilise à cet effet les tons de prune-marron et gris. Au contraire pour les passages plus légers comme sa révélation, sa présentation au Roi, ses victoires... les couleurs tendres et lumineuses (jaune-orange-rouge-vert tendre) sont utilisées pour accentuer l'effet de la foule et de mouvement il osera même, par 5 fois, déborder du cadre de l'image. Sur la page de titre Maurice Boutet de Monvel utilise l'image de Jeanne d'Arc afin de donner une image positive de l'armée française. Ce thème de la jeune Lorraine luttant pour l'indépendance de la France connaît un regain d'intérêt après la guerre de 1870, et la perte de l'Alsace-Lorraine. Des pélerinages à Domrémy, s'organisent, et les tableaux sur ce thème abondent dans les Salons.On la voit écraser les soldats prussiens sur son passage et derrière elle se tient l'armée française, droite et combative. Jeanne d'Arc était considérée à la fin du XIXè siècle comme la sainte patronne des armées françaises. Le livre de Maurice BOUTET de MONVEL devient vite un "best-seller". Petites piqures marginales essentiellement sur les Marie-Louise, infimes plis, restaurations, usures, salissures et étui postérieur. Exemplaire personnel de l'artiste sur fin papier Japon.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Rom, 6. XII. [1896].

      1896. 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Kl.-8vo. "Geehrte Frau / Es ist mir eine besondere Befriedigung gewesen, dass mein kleiner Nachruf, Ihnen sympathisch gewesen ist. Sie sind mir ja auch längst keine Fremde mehr und ich weiss, dass Niemand dem edlen Geschiednen so nahe gestanden, ihn so gut gekannt hat, wie Sie. Was Sie verloren haben, begreife ich vollkommen, denn auch selbst die reichste Hinterlassenschaft geistigen Lebens kann das warme Wort, den begleitenden Blick, den lebendigen Austausch, nicht ersetzen. Aber nach und nach wird Ihnen dies herrliche Besitzthum, ein unerschöpflicher Trost werden und jemehr Sie davon der Welt mittheilen wollen, jemehr werden Sie Gutes thun in seinem Sinn. Denn die Welt heutzutage hat in ihrem Elend, noch vielmehr das geistige Almosen nöthig als das materielle, um die Idealität zu retten, ohne die das Leben nur gemein ist und für edle Naturen ohne Werth. - Führt Ihr Weg, nun Sie allein sind, Sie nicht einmal nach Rom? Es würde sich sehr freuen Sie persönlich kennen zu lernen Ihre sehr ergebne M. Meysenbug". - Minimal angestaubt; im linken Rand Einriss von ausgerissenem Zwirn. Von Meysenbugs Nachruf auf den am 8. November 1896 verstorbenen Rudolf Gf. Hoyos-Sprinzenstein war am 20. November in der Neuen Freien Presse erschienen (in Kopie beiliegend).

        The Summary Jurisdiction (Married Women) Act, 1895.

      London: Shaw & Sons,, 1896. Octavo. Original green cloth, title to spine and front cover gilt. Spine a little darkened and rubbed at ends. An excellent, fresh copy. First edition of this landmark in British legislation for the rights of women, protecting married women against physical abuse and neglect, and allowing custody of children to deserted wives. Consolidating the 1878 Matrimonial Causes Act and the 1886 Married Women (Maintenance in the Case of Desertion) Act, it extended the power of magistrates in cases where husbands wilfully neglected to maintain their wives and families, providing "the basic grounds for maintenance and separation orders that were in force until the 1960 Act introduced modifications (Smart, p. 31). Prior to this, "the law tacitly assumed that when she married a woman lost some of the right to bodily autonomy she had enjoyed when single... A married woman remained obliged to cohabit with her abusive husband unless she could afford to pay for a judicial separation from the Divorce Court. This, combined with the provision of a Divorce Act that a wife but not a husband could be divorced for adultery alone, constituted virtually a proprietary right by husbands in their wives' bodies (Shanley, p. 176). Uncommon, with 12 copies located on OCLC (five located in both the UK and US respectively).

        Moireseideneinband. Wohl München, um 1896.

      1896. 177 x 113 mm. In den Farben Rot, Weiß und Blau (quergestreift), silbergeprägtem königlich-bayerischen und goldgepr. Habsburger Wappen sowie goldgepr. Titel. Aufwendiger Einband eines einfachen Textheftchens mit dem Libretto zu Beethovens Oper "Fidelio", erschienen 1896 in München bei Kastner und Lossen (36 Seiten). Der Einband wurde offenbar von einem Münchner Buchbinder mit Initialen "PA" gefertigt (eine kleine silbergeprägte Signatur findet sich am unteren Rand des hinteren Deckels, mit etwas Phantasie sind zwischen den Buchstaben die Türme der Frauenkirche zu erkennen). Die Farben des Einbandes und die beiden Wappen sollen zweifelsohne die Verbindung des habsburgischen Kaiser- und des bayerischen Königshauses symbolisieren. Daß dieses Exemplar zu einer speziellen, hochkarätig besetzten Aufführung des "Fidelio" in München diente, bestätigen die handschriftlich mit Bleistift eingetragenen Namen der Sänger, die sämtlich in dieser Zeit Auftritte am Münchner Nationaltheater hatten, darunter Katharina Senger-Bettaque als Leonore, Gustav Walter als Florestan, Friedrich Brodersen als Minister, Alfred Bauberger als Don Pizarro und Sebastian Hofmüller in der Rolle des Jaquino. Ob Kaiserin Elisabeth ("Sisi") dieser Aufführung mit dem vorliegenden Textheft in der Hand beiwohnte, sei dahingestellt. - Buchblock gebrochen, Seiten tls. ein wenig gelockert, leicht gebräunt.

        The Summary Jurisdiction (Married Women) Act, 1895.

      London: Shaw & Sons, 1896 - Octavo. Original green cloth, title to spine and front cover gilt. Spine a little darkened and rubbed at ends. An excellent, fresh copy. First edition of this landmark in British legislation for the rights of women, protecting married women against physical abuse and neglect, and allowing custody of children to deserted wives. Consolidating the 1878 Matrimonial Causes Act and the 1886 Married Women (Maintenance in the Case of Desertion) Act, it extended the power of magistrates in cases where husbands wilfully neglected to maintain their wives and families, providing "the basic grounds for maintenance and separation orders that were in force until the 1960 Act introduced modifications (Smart, p. 31). Prior to this, "the law tacitly assumed that when she married a woman lost some of the right to bodily autonomy she had enjoyed when single. A married woman remained obliged to cohabit with her abusive husband unless she could afford to pay for a judicial separation from the Divorce Court. This, combined with the provision of a Divorce Act that a wife but not a husband could be divorced for adultery alone, constituted virtually a proprietary right by husbands in their wives' bodies (Shanley, p. 176). Uncommon, with 12 copies located on OCLC (five located in both the UK and US respectively).

        The Alhambra; With An Introduction By Elizabeth Robins Pennell Illustrated With Drawings Of The Places Mentioned By Joseph Pennell

      London - Macmillan, 1896 Book. Hardcover. Washington Irving's collection of essays, verbal sketches and tales, centred around the eponymous Alhambra Palace in Granada, the illustrated Pennel edition. The illustrations by Pennell are particularly admired. TheAlhambra has its origins in Irving's researches for his history A Chronicle of the Conquest of Granada. He raveled to Granada, where he managed to obtain access to the Alhambra palace from the governor. He was inspired by his stay there to write this work, which combines description, myth, and narrations of historical events, all the way up to the penisular wars and the earthquake in 1821. The book was first published in 1832 in the United States and England. It was highly influential, and this later limited edition is a testament to its enduring popularity. Condition: In the original cloth. Externally very smart with just a little fading to the spine. The free endpapers are a little foxed. The text block is untrimmed, and therefore the edges are a little dusty. Otherwise clean and bright throughout, and generallyfirmly bound. Overall: FINE.

        THE SAVOY

      London: Leonard Smithers, 1896. The Collected issue. Very bright and sound copies with only minor flaws: trifling wear to the extremities, some light toning with faint foxing to endpapers, quarter-inch tear to crown of Vol II.. The Collected issue. Complete run, nos. 1-8 in 3 volumes. Ads present at the end of numbers 2-8. In the original bindings of violet cloth, the front covers with pictorial design in gilt adapted from the title-page of No. 1, the lower covers with the "Puck on Pegasus" device. Complete with the paper covers bound in and with the tipped-in Christmas card in No. 2. "The Savoy is perhaps the most mature and consistent periodical to express the literary and artistic culture of the Nineties in England. In the first number, Symonds stated that 'All we ask from our contributors is good work, and good work is all we offer our readers... We have no formulas... We have not invented a new point of view.' In an epilogue in the final number he observed, 'We assumed that there were very many people in the world who really cared for art, and really for art's sake. The more I consider it, the more I realize that this is not the case. Comparatively few people care for art at all, and most of these care for it because they mistake it for something else.'" (The Turn Of A Century. p. 35). "The cover Beardsley made for the first number of The Savoy... is an important drawing and the title-page is as fine as anything he ever did. In the harmonious correlation of all its elements, not forgetting the lettering, proclaim the fact that no artist working in black and white has ever attained greater perfection." (Gallatin. Aubrey Beardsley, p. 6). Lasner 103, p. 63.
