Budge, E. A. Wallis
Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co. , Ltd, 1897. Xiv, [ii], 154 pp. Two b/w plates between preparatory material and text. Limited edition of 350. Beautifully bound in 1/4 leather with dark red calf spine, 5 raised bands with gilt ruling, black spine label, gilt ruling to boards, green and dark red marbled hard covers, all in very nice condition, just a hint of wear. Fresh high quality endpapers and blanks, title page in red and black, text is clean and unmarked with a small bit of age darkening, binding tight. Marbled edges. A lovely copy, heavy for international shipping. In 1895 a box was discovered in the ruins of an ancient Coptic church in Upper Egypt that contained a book, dating from c700-900AD. This was the first known complete Sahidic psalter, the text of which shows how close the modern Coptic psalter hews to the ancient. E. A. Wallis Budge should need no introduction as the flamboyant yet hard working Egyptologist and philologist who was knighted in 1920 for his services to the British Museum. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 154 pages

[Idaho]. [Mining]. Dimick, J.A.
Oregon; Idaho; Colorado, 1897. Very good.. Eleven manuscript and typescript letters, all [1-2]pp. Light wear and old folds. Lower left corner of one letter torn away, not affecting text. Brief but fascinating assemblage of eleven letters pertaining to mining investments and operations in Idaho in the 1890s. The letters relate to the business activities of one J.A. Dimick in the Placer Basin and Seven Devils Mining District on the Idaho side of the Snake River and the Rock Creek Butte near Baker City, Oregon. Most of the letters are addressed to Dimick from associates in Baker City, Portland, and Denver; two date from 1891, the rest from 1895 to 1897. They discuss the various intricacies of mining deeds, plans to sell and acquire mining claims, news of mine sales and purchases, the need to make surveys, and the supply of mining operations. Many are quite lively, and give a good representation of Dimick's business activities, and his correspondents run the gamut from miners to mine owners. One miner named S.K. Bradford wrote Dimick three letters in the present group. A typical passage reads, "The North Pole at Crocker [?] is the only mine working. Cyanide. Foreman died.... Sent my horses to Snake River at 7 Devils Crossing. Will try last mine tomorrow and then if I can't find work will go to Colo[rado]." At the opposite end of the spectrum, a disappointed investor writes to Dimick in February, 1897, saying, "I heard from the Pittsburgh people and they turned Placer down. Their expert reports $9.00 of an average from the east shaft & $21.00 from the other three shafts. … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Beethoven, Ludwig van] Göbel, E. F. [C. Jäger].
Germany, 1897. Original 19th century Gouache after an 1870 painting by C. Jäger. Beautifully Framed. Size of frame with Gouache: 53 cm x 65 cm. The Gouache itself measures: 48 cm x 34,5 cm. Outer margins slightly frayed only. Extraordinary 19th century painting with fresh impression of the signature-face of this timeless composer. Gouache, also spelled guache, is a type of paint consisting of pigment, a binding agent (usually gum arabic), and sometimes added inert material, designed to be used in an opaque method. It also refers to paintings that use this opaque method. The name derives from the Italian guazzo. Gouache differs from watercolor in that the particles are larger, the ratio of pigment to water is much higher, and an additional, inert, white pigment such as chalk is also present. This makes gouache heavier and more opaque, with greater reflective qualities. (Wikipedia). Ludwig van Beethoven (baptised 17 December 1770 - 26 March 1827) was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. His best known compositions include 9 symphonies, 5 concertos for piano, 32 piano sonatas, and 16 string quartets. He also composed other chamber music, choral works (including the celebrated Missa Solemnis), and songs. Born in Bonn, then the capital of the Electorate of Cologne and part of the Holy Roman Empire, Beethoven displayed his musical talents at an early age and was taught by his father Johann van Beethoven and Christian Gott … [Click Below for Full Description]

German, 1897. Original 19th century Gouache after an 1870 painting by C. Jäger. Beautifully Framed. Size of frame with Gouache: 53 cm x 65 cm. The Gouache itself measures: 44 cm x 36,5 cm. Outer margins slightly frayed only. Extraordinary painting with some minor repairs. Just like the Beethoven Gouache we also offer by this gifted artist, a very fresh impression of this wonderful musical inspirer.

This makes gouache heavier and more opaque, with greater reflective qualities. (Wikipedia).Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (27 January 1756 - 5 December 1791), baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. At 17, he was engaged as a court musician in Salzburg, but grew restless and travelled in search of a better position, always composing abundantly. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved … [Click Below for Full Description]

Grant.New York: Robert Sneider, 37 John Street, [1897] and a manuscript, a Record of Service of L. Curtis Brackett, Bvt. Major, U. S. A. Compiled by His Wife 19 pages, 10 legal-size sheets, prepared by his wife, Charlotte Morell Speed Brackett. Also sold with a photograph of Maj. Brackett, his wife and daughter, Anna Speed Brackett, taken at Luna Park, Coney Island, New York during the summer of 1910. The family members are identified on the verso of this souvenir postcard photograph. It is noteworthy that Bvt. Maj. L. Curtis Brackett was brevetted twice by President Lincoln. The first time was as Bvt. Captain on July 6, 1864, and the second time occurred on April 2, 1865, as Bvt. Major, just twelve days before President Lincoln was assassinated. Both citations are quoted in full, as well as other numerous citations and recommendations for this distinguished officer and Aide-de-Camp to Major General Orlando B. Willcox. Following years of fund-raising and argument about the location of President Grant's final resting place, New York City was chosen because his express wish was to be buried next to his wife, Julia Dent Grant, and as West Point did not yet allow women to be buried there. As Mrs. Grant lived nearby, she chose New York and a scenic promontory on Riverside Drive at 122nd Street for her and her husband's mausoleum. On April 27, 1897, the seventy-fifth anniversary of President Grant's bir … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wells, H.G.
London: C. Arthur Pearson Limited, 1897. First Edition. Original red publisher's cloth binding with gilt titles to spine and front board; black illustration to front board. In Very Good+ condition with the spine a bit darkened and the hinges repaired, as often. Contemporary owner's name on the front end paper, dated October 13th, 1897. H.G. Wells connects science with philosophy in this novel, which reimagines and modernizes Plato's tale of The Ring of Gyges. According to Plato, the power of invisibility could corrupt anyone possessing it, giving them the upper hand over friends and enemies alike. Wells' lead character Griffin, a scientist, succeeds in doing just this. "Griffin gives in to many of the same temptations. He robs. He injures. He kills...But even though Griffin is guilty of his share of crimes, his goal is not to indulge in hedonism. His goal is just the opposite: he wants to stop being invisible" (Frederick). Ultimately, the practical problems of being an invisible human work counter to Griffin's interests. The need to be clothed, the isolation from other humans lead to Griffin's downfall and death at the hands of a terrified mob. Indeed, much as his actions dehumanize Griffin, his invisibility allows the mob attacking him to treat him as less than human. An exceptionally important consideration of the benefits and dangers of science, and the definition of humanness at the turn of the century. Very Good +. Very Good +.

MALLARMÉ Stéphane
Carte autographe signée adressée à Paul Hervieu. Valvins, octobre 1897. 2 pages in-16. Belle lettre suite à la lecture de La Bêtise Parisienne de P. Hervieu. « Merci, Hervieu, qu’on n’aperçoit plus par ici, tard en rangeant automnalement dans la bibliothèque les lectures de la saison, pour les heures excellentes dues à la Bêtise Parisienne ; ce recueil exhibe un vrai-contre-point de l’ironie, parfois ténue exquisément et pleine d’autre part, avec une solidité et une fermeté de carrure soustraite à toute vulgarité ; puis, comme vous possédez d’avance et toujours, sous chaque facette, votre sujet !
