Privately Published, 1897. Superb two vol. set in red decorated cloth boards. Protected by professional standard acetate wrap. Gilt lettering and illustration motif to front boards and spine.

Twain, Mark
Hartford: American Publishing Co, 1897. First edition. Near Fine. Original blue cloth binding stamped in gold, with colored illustrations to the cover. Trivial wear to corners and slight rubbing to front board. Contemporary ownership signature to front endpaper, else internally bright and unmarked. 712 pages, with terminal fly-leaf. Photogravure frontispiece portrait and 192 illustrations, fifty six full page by Dan Beard, A. B. Frots, Peter Newell and others. Frontis a bit foxed, not affecting title. Contemporary ownership signature to header of title page. A Near Fine, bright copy. Twain's well regarded travelogue. Dire financial straits had forced Twain to take a worldwide lecture tour in 1895 and compose a collection of his travels and experiences. Twain traveled widely, including to Africa, India, and Australia - and these writings contain much of Twain's characteristic humor as well as a pointed critique of imperialism. "This is one more ingredient in the curious, amusing, instructive, and at times brilliant farrago, half anecdotes, one quarter diary, one-eighth quotations and the rest delicious footing, which Mark Twain after much pondering decided to call Following the Equator" (Contemporary New York Times review). BAL 3451. Near Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]

Przybyszewski, Stanislaw
F. Fontane & Co, Berlin, 1897. 8vo, 64 pp, rebound in yellow card covers with handwritten title pastedown to front panel, backed in blue paper and blue cloth tape. First edition, presumed second state, with the Fontane publisher's label pastedown on the title page, over the original Kritik-Verlag imprint. With additions. The rare first edition of Przybyszewski's obscure decadent text, and which in later years has become an important text to modern Satanism. The book is rare enough in the original edition, but this is also a very curious copy with additions. Inside the front board is pasted in a reproduction of Hans Baldung Grien's engraving Two Witches, originally made in 1523, in which one of the witches is holding a bottle of quicksilver, which at that time was still a treatment for syphilis. On the blank page preceding the second book, there is pasted a reproduction of Hans Francken's Der Hexensabbath. At the conclusion of the text is pasted in a newspaper clipping in German on Satanic orgies in Warsaw, dated in holograph January 1933. Pasted down over both endpapers is a reproduction of a 17th century broadside featuring an engraving by Matthaeus Merian the Elder after a drawing by Michael Herr, on various aspects of witchcraft. OCLC locates only a single holding of this edition. Battered and toned, with both hinges cracked. Good only. OCLC locates only a single holding of this edition. Fine.

Washington Irving
New York: 1897. Set has some chipping and shelf wear but otherwise looks unread. Set looks new internally, it has a shelf wear and chipping. THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WASHINGTON IRVING! Complete in 15 volumes. Printed in 1851, set predates the first collected edition, printed during Irving's lifetime. These are the original bindings. Main wear is the chip to volume 15, the bowed covers, some cracked hinges. Set is remarkably well preserved. Some covers are bowed, this may be bothersome. They can be gently pressed over time to reverse this. This set is still bound in the original leather bindings from the Victorian Era (mid 1800's). The leather bindings have generalized wear. The hinges are all strongly attached. This is an early antiquarian set of Washington Irving, bound in leather, and has value as such. Each book will be individually wrapped and well protected for shipping.I have extensive experience shipping large antiquarian sets. This set is bound in the original leather bindings.

1897. Lettera in formato cm.15,5x11,5 compilata su quattro facciate su 12, 14, 9 e 13 righe, la terza delle quali vergata in orizzontale. Puccini sta programmando le vacanze estive, ed è .... in cerca di compagnia. "Caro Beppe, visto che il calore non ci dà requie abbiamo deciso di andare alle Radici (1527 metri) il 19 corrente per un mesetto. Ho scritto in proposito a Settimio Lunardi per vedere se c'é sempre l'alloggio che si vide noi" Pensa di passare da Pracchia e si augura di incontrate l'amico Carlo Carignani. "Rispondimi subito e cerca di farci tutti contenti prestandoci la sublime donna e ilnon meno angelico rampollo per un mese di frescura che rinforzi le reni e le mammelle e non che il centro di gravità .....". Buona e leggibile grafia, con firma "Puccini". Giuseppe Razzi (Firenze, 1861-1916), familiarmente detto Beppe, era il marito di Alaide (Ida) Bonturi (Lucca, 1871- ?), sorella di Elvira (Lucca, 1860-1930), la moglie di Puccini. Ma era non solo il cognato del musicista, ma anche e sopratutto una sorta di uomo di fiducia del Maestro. A lui Puccini si rivolgeva per acquisti di ogni genere, commissioni, con l’incarico di occuparsi di ogni incombenza pratica durante le sue numerose assenze. Nella presente missiva traspare un evidente buonumore, dovuto evidentemente al prossimo riposo estivo dopo le fatiche e il successo de "La Bohème". Il documento proviene dalla collezione privata del M° Vittorio Gui (Roma, 1885-1975), compositore e direttore d'orchestra, fondatore nel 1933 del "Maggio Musicale Fiorentino". Codice libreria 117620.

[Caryl, Charles W.]
Denver, 1897. 192pp. plus portrait frontispiece and two folding plans. Original blue cloth ruled in blind, title stamped in gilt on front board. Minor edge wear, light soiling. One folding plan expertly repaired. Very good. An obscure work for an all but forgotten failed utopian experiment in Colorado in the late-19th century. The New Era Union utopia planned by Caryl was to be based on gold mining in the Centennial State. Caryl planned to incorporate the Gold Extraction, Mining and Supply Company at $10,000,000 of capital stock. As he writes, the "idea of the New Era Union is to provide employment for eight hours a day under the most favorable conditions, to all classes of honorable mental and physical labor." Chapter six is titled, "Poverty and Misery to be Abolished; Women to be the Saviors of Mankind" and the last chapter promises "Universal Peace, Happiness and Prosperity for All Who Work for the New Era Union." Particularly notable in this copy are the two folding diagrams - almost always lacking - illustrating the truly utopian ideal of the proposed "New Era Model City." The first is an artist's rendering titled, "Sketch of Center of New Era Model City." The second plan, "Outline of Plan for New Era Model City" is an overhead schematic of the proposed city, with small vignettes of the city in each corner. Both plans highlight the main unique aspect of the proposed city, which was to be laid out in radiating concentric circles "Plan to establish a new Utopia, which won the backing of Edward Bellamy and others" - Wessen.

Tuer 1897 The Leadenhall Press : London 10" by 8" [6], vii-xvii, [1], 486, [4pp] SUMMARY The second edition of Andrew Tuer's important working looking at the history of hornbooks, looking in detail at many surviving hornbooks.

With two horn-books to the pocket to the rear, lacking the one on oak, containing the one on card, and the one on ivory. Both of the horn-books have the alphabet printed on them. Illustrated with a copper plate frontispiece, a colour vignette to the title page, two folding plates, one double paged plate, and forty-six plates. This work is a duodecimo. This work is considered to be the best study on horn-books. Hornbooks originated in around 1450 in England. They were used as a primer for study, and in children's education, the term generally refers to a leaf or page displaying the alphabet, or religious materials, attached to a frame with a handle. They could be mounted on wood, bone, leather, or stone. English monks began to make hornbooks, intending to help teach their students how to read. There are some notes on hornbooks in this work which hadn't been printed before this publication. At first the author discusses the history and origination of hornbooks, before looking in detail at many historic examples … [Click Below for Full Description]

Washington Irving
New York: 1897. This set is still bound in the original leather bindings from the Victorian Era (late 1800's). The leather bindings have generalized wear and cracking. The internal hinges are all strong, in that the leather is not structural to the binding strength, but there is external cracking and splitting, especially along the hinge area of the bindings, with some spine lift along the hinge areas, some of which can not be seen in the pictures, and along the spine extremities. The hinges are all strongly attached. This set has a lot of generalized wear and cracking but is still a nice antiquarian library set bound in leather. These are the original bindings. This set is not a good purchase where condition is critical. Still, this is an early antiquarian set of Washington Irving, bound in leather, and has value as such. THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WASHINGTON IRVING!Complete in 15 volumes. Printed 1897. I apologize for not fully inspecting each volume prior to listing. These books are still wrapped in plastic from when they were purchased 20 years ago. I'm going through a warehouse of old books and don't have the time. All hinges are 100% fully attached. Set has extremity chipping visible through the plastic, I have attempted to show close up pictures of the worst chipping. Having opened volume one, Set looks new internally. Appears unread and no writing. So the main wear is done shelf wear and chipping to the spines. This set is still bound in the original leather bindings from the Victorian Era (late 1800's).

1897. Lunga lettera autografa firmata, in formato cm.18x11,4, compilata su tre di quattro facciate rispettivamente su 17, 17 e 5 righe, in buona e comprensibile grafia e firma "G.Verdi". Vecchia menda adesiva di rinforzo alla piegatura centrale, e lievi abrasioni e tracce di scotch alle piegature laterali. "Genova, 3 maggio 1897. Egr. Maestro Tebaldini, E' vero: io manifesto difficilmente le mie opinioni sui lavori altrui, perché diffido del giudizio mio, come diffido del giudizio degli altri. Noi giudichiamo secondo il nostro punto di vista, secondo i nostri studj, secondo le nostre tendenze, etc... Si dice che Beethoven detestasse la musica del "Barbiere", che Haendel credesse che il suo cuoco avrebbe potuto scrivere la musica come Gluck!!!! Malgrado ciò, io senza dare giudizi ho potuto apprezzare le sue composizioni; ben fatte le une, e le altre. Preferisco le Liriche specialmente la prima. La declamazione è giusta ed il pensiero distinto e semplice. L'armonia ne è un po' tormentata, ma l'epoca nostra vuole così. Modernità ? Sia pure, ma sotto questo pretesto si può fare "coûte qui coûte", il "nuovo", si dimentica il "bello", e si fa lo strano! Non badi a quel che dico, e mi creda con perfetta stima, G.Verdi". . Si tratta di una lettera abbastanza particolare, dove il Maestro, solitamente molto riservato, dedica l'intera pagina di inizio e la parte finale ad alcune illuminanti considerazioni di estetica musicale. Un ormai anziano Verdi che spende parole incoraggianti verso l'opera del M° Tebaldini, dopo aver espresso lungimiranti opinioni circa i gusti artistici … [Click Below for Full Description]

Twain, Mark
Hartford: American Publishing Co, 1897. Original blue cloth binding stamped in gold, with colored illustrations to the cover. Trivial wear to corners and slight rubbing to front board. Contemporary ownership signature to front endpaper, else internally bright and unmarked. 712 pages, with terminal fly-leaf. Photogravure frontispiece portrait and 192 illustrations, fifty six full page by Dan Beard, A. B. Frots, Peter Newell and others. Frontis a bit foxed, not affecting title. Contemporary ownership signature to header of title page. A Near Fine, bright copy. Twain's well regarded travelogue. Dire financial straits had forced Twain to take a worldwide lecture tour in 1895 and compose a collection of his travels and experiences. Twain traveled widely, including to Africa, India, and Australia-and these writings contain much of Twain's characteristic humor as well as a pointed critique of imperialism. "This is one more ingredient in the curious, amusing, instructive, and at times brilliant farrago, half anecdotes, one quarter diary, one-eighth quotations and the rest delicious footing, which Mark Twain after much pondering decided to call Following the Equator" (Contemporary New York Times review).

Excellent copy of this first edition of black Presbyterian minister Rev. Matthew Anderson's study of Presbyterianism's outreach to black Philadelphians. Included here is a history of Philadelphia's Berean Presbyterian Church, co-founded in 1880 by Anderson, and Anderson's autobiography. Anderson's wife, Dr. Caroline V. Still Anderson, was the daughter of Underground Railroad conductor William Still, himself an Elder of Berean Presbyterian Church and briefly mentioned in the text. With her husband, Dr. Still helped found in 1899 (in the church's basement) the Berean Manual Training and Industrial School, the educational predecessors of which are discussed in the present book. "In 1899, W.E.B. Du Bois in his book The Philadelphia Negro noted that, 'Berean Church...conducts a successful Building and Loan Association, a kindergarten, a medical dispensary, and a seaside home, beside the numerous church societies. Probably no church in the city, except the Episcopal Church of the Crucifixion is doing so much for the betterment of the Negro...'"¹ Work p410. Not in Blockson Collection or LCP, Afro-Americana.
