        THE MILL OF SILENCE.

      Chicago and New York: Rand, McNally & Company,. 1897. original pictorial olive cloth, front and spine panels stamped in green and gold, t.e.g., other edges untrimmed.. A fine copy. (#130234). First edition. "Bernard Capes is now generally recognized as one of the masters of the Edwardian ghost story. What's not generally known is that the present title, his third novel and the first published under his own name, is a fully-fledged weird tale replete with curses, fate, prophecies, a magnificently haunted room, and a pair of ghosts, one sinister, the other kind. The atmosphere of the book is soaked in a 'high spectral gloom.' The overtly supernatural incidents are few, but to call the book's weirdness "subdued" would be grossly inaccurate. It reeks of it. Its themes are weighty and its plot construction is intricate and polished. Not the least of its virtues are stylistic. 'By lowering factory and grimy wall; by squalid streets peeled of uncleanliness in the teeth of the bitter blast; by low-browed taverns, that gushed red on us a moment and were gone, he sped on with crooked paces, and I followed.' (p. 167) The book is shot through with dozens of little touches -- gruesome ditties and feverish babblings, references to folkloristic magic and superstition -- that build up a sense of the uncanny and dreadful. A gravedigger, talking with the hero about macabre doings in the church-yard, is frightened by a wasp. 'Who ever see a pink warsp wi' a mouth like a purse and blue inside?' (p. 247) THE MILL OF SILENCE is also a full-blooded mystery yarn, delving into theft, blackmail, adultery, false imprisonment, child abandonment, murder and suicide. The tone generally is passionate, in contrast to the detached craftsmanlike manner of his later stories. The novel won second prize (in a field of 861) in a 'Stories of Mystery' contest sponsored by the CHICAGO RECORD in 1896, and was published the following year (as by "B. E. J. Capes"). It was not issued in England until 1899, when it came out as part of a series of cheap paperbacks, now very rare. The first cloth edition was produced by John Long at a still later date." - Robert Eldridge. Hubin (1994), p. 131. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992).

        THE CHILDREN OF THE SEA

      1897 - A Tale of the Forecastle. New York: Dodd, Mead and Company, 1897. Original pictorial light blue-grey mottled cloth. First Edition, first issue, of the tale subsequently published as THE NIGGER OF THE "NARCISSUS." Conrad wrote this story with the "Nigger" title, but consented to change the title for the American edition (which preceded the English); the publisher's argument was not that the "Nigger" title might be offensive, but rather that the white American book-buying public would not buy the book if they knew it was about a black man. Nonetheless, the original title was restored for all subsequent editions, making this variant-titled edition one of the more sought-after of Conrad's works.~In late 1897, Dodd Mead had a first edition of 1000 copies printed;~because the book was scheduled for publication late in the fall season, the printers were instructed to print both 1897 and 1898 title pages. The number printed with each date is not recorded. It was re-introduced in the spring and listed in Publisher's Weekly on March 12th among the spring publications. Copies of the spring issue were supplied with the 1898 title page [Cagle].~This copy is from the first issue, with an 1897 title page. It is in near-fine condition (minor cracking of the front endpaper, which also has a partially-erased inscription). This is an increasingly-difficult book to find in collectible condition. Cagle A3b.

        Having learned just three days earlier that the Jewish community in Munich did not want his first international Jewish congress to be held in Munich as he had just announced in his new weekly Zionist newspaper, ?Die Welt,? Theodor Herzl thanks his correspondent for asking him to serve as a prize judge, hoping that it will not take too much time because he is ?very busy? ? three days later he relocated the First Jewish Congress to Basle, Switzerland.

      Vienna, June 14, 1897. 5.75" x 7.75". "Autograph Letter Signed ?Th Herzl,? one page, 5.75? x 7.75?. Vienna, June 14, 1897. On laid paper, imprinted letterhead of the ?New Free Press.? In German, not translated. Triangular portion in seemingly blank upper right cut away. Partial split at right edge of mid-horizontal fold strengthened on verso with archival tape. Fine condition. In full, ?Das mir freundlicht augetragens Preisrichteramt nehme ich mit besten danke an und hoffe mir, dass es mich nicht zu sehr in Ansprich nehmen wird, da ich ohnehin stark beschäftigt bin.? In 1891, Theodor Herzl was appointed the Paris correspondent for the influential liberal Viennese paper ?Neue Freie Presse.?The anti-Semitism he witnessed in Paris inspired him to write a play, ?The New Ghetto,? in October 1894. The main character is a Jewish lawyer who urges Jews to free themselves from their spiritual ghettos. On October 15, 1894, Capt. Alfred Dreyfus, a Jewish officer in the French military, was accused of treason. His court martial trial began in Paris on December 19, 1894. Only journalists who had received special permits and witnesses in the case were admitted to the court. As a representative of ?Neue Freie Presse,? Herzl attended the trial. On December 22, 1894, Dreyfus was found guilty of having sold plans of fortifications and other government secrets. Herzl heard the court?s presiding officer rule, ?The Court condemns Captain Alfred Dreyfus to deportation and internment for life in a fortified place and to deprivation of his military rank.? The French newspaper ?La Libre Parole? portrayed the incident as further evidence of Jewish treachery. The verdict strengthened Herzl?s conviction that there was only one way stop the Jewish population from being subjected to anti-Semitism. He began writing ?The Jewish State ?" A Modern Attempt to Solve the Jewish Question.? It was published on February 14, 1896. The book became the foundation of the Zionist movement. It outlined the economic, social, and governmental structures of a proposed Jewish state, and mentioned Palestine or Argentina as its location and that the spoken language would be German. Before its translation into Hebrew later that year, Herzl removed Argentina as an option and said Hebrew, not German, would be the dominant language. Herzl?s next step was to found his own newspaper and to organize a meeting of Jews from all over the world to hear his plans. On Friday, June 4, 1897, just ten days before he wrote this letter, Herzl published in Vienna the first issue of his new weekly periodical, ?Die Welt? (?The World?). In ?Die Welt? he publicized the convening of a Zionist Congress to be held in Munich. On June 11th, Munich?s Jewish community protested holding the meeting in their city. Three days later, Herzl wrote this letter advising the recipient that he is ?very busy.? On June 17th, he announced the congress would be held in Basle, Switzerland, publicizing the change in the third issue of ?Die Welt.? The First Zionist Congress was held in Basle, August 29-31, 1897. The entrance to the congress hall was decorated with a blue and white flag bearing the Star of David. Over 200 different groups from 16 countries arrived in Basle. Chaired by Herzl, the Congress adopted the program of the Zionist movement (the Basle Program) and declared, ?Zionism seeks to establish a home for the Jewish people in Palestine secured under public law.? In his diary, Herzl wrote, ?In Basle I founded the Jewish state...Maybe in five years, certainly in fifty, everyone will realize it.? The Jewish state, Israel, was founded on May 14, 1948, 50 years 8 months 15 days after Herzl convened the First Zionist Congress in Basle!"

        The Decoration of Houses.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, , 1897. Square octavo. Original marbled paper-covered boards, paper spine label, top edge green, other untrimmed. Housed in a custom-made red cloth solander box. Decorative title page (with tissue-guard), 56 monochrome plates. Ownership inscriptions of "Grizel Boude 1935" and "Aurora Carlier Christmas 1960". Spine sunned and a little rubbed, old pale dampstain at head of covers and a number of gatherings. First edition, first printing, in Garrison's Binding B ("priority undetermined"). Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Vernon Lee from Edith Wharton January 1898". An important association copy: the recipient is the art historian Violet Paget (1856-1935) who wrote under the pseudonym of Vernon Lee. "Wharton made few friendships with other women writers, and Vernon Lee, brilliant, loquacious, difficult, eccentric and mannish (she wore 'the style preferred by intellectual lesbians - a man's shirt, foulard and velvet jacket over a long skirt'), was not to be a lifelong friend. But just when Wharton needed it, she was a perfect guide to Italy and an inspiring intellectual example... Wharton often told Vernon Lee what an important guide she was to her" (Hermione Lee, Edith Wharton, 2013, p. 97). Wharton's Italian Villas and their Gardens (1904) was dedicated to Vernon Lee. Hermione Lee comments that The Decoration of Houses, Wharton's second book, following the unprocurable Verses of 1878, "sold well, was reprinted, and had a marked influence on house-design in America" (Chapter 5).

She states about Downing, "Though some public buildings are among his works, the most impressive bulk of his production took form of houses for affluent Atlantans in which the interiors were elaborately detailed.

She knew the Armytage's through John Ruskin - J.C. Armytage had engraved several plates for Ruskin. Newhaven Court, Cromer, Norfolk, was the seaside home of the Locker-Lampson family. Kate Greenaway had been visiting Cromer, mainly for her health since 1892. "August [1897] was again spent at Cromer, where the rain and cold kept her confined indoors for a good deal of the time. However her stay was enlivened by brief visits to some of Hannah Jane's [Locker-Lampson] fascinating neighbours. Among the staunch, wealthy local families, the Barclay's, the Hoare's, the Gurney's, there stood out a few who defied convention, like the elegant Cyril Flower, patron of Burne-Jones, who lived a perfect aesthete's life in a Lutyens-designed house, furnished in impeccable taste, at Overstrand. At Blickling there was Constance, Lady Lothian, a high-born dowager with an obsession for white. She proudly invited friends and acquaintances to visit her grounds inhabited by white cattle, white ponies, white pigeons and white peacocks. Kate was delighted with these curiosities and afterwards, in a letter to a friend in London, she noted seeing a fine collection of storks and kangaroos as well." (Rodney Engen. Kate Greenaway - A Biography, p. 198)."Mr Oliver Locker-Lampson, in the December "Century," gives a number of interesting recollections concerning Kate Greenaway, the famous artist and friend of little children. This is how Mr Locker-Lampson describes her personal appearance :— "She was a dark, quiet little woman, with a profusion of black hair curled up simply at the back, and allowed to grow in a long fringe at the front. Short sight, instead of rendering her awkward, rather heightened her charm, causing her to look up wonderingly at those with whom she spoke." Her laugh, we are told, was "simply delightful, never rising above a certain pitch, but rippling along like a brook." AT CROMER. Miss Greenaway was often at Cromer with the Locker-Lampson family :— "During morning strolls her chief pleasure consisted in watching baby boys and girls, mere bundles of tucked- up clothes, paddling in the sea ; and when such were absent, commenting on the absurd flounderings of plump old gentleman bathing. Then out would come a pencil at our request, and there would result a sketch. . . When the tide was far out, we would get her to draw fancy portraits with her umbrella on the hard, dry sand, with many regrets that the sea was soon to come up and wash them away." All poor people were a source of interest, and especially her models, who, Mr Locker-Lampson says, were oft- times taken from the gutter. HER DISLIKE OF PUBLICITY. Only on rare occasions did Miss Greenaway speak of her talent, "looking upon it as a gift of God for which all praise to her was unseemly":— "Miss Greenaway ignored posterity. All personal publicity, all spirit of rivalry, were at variance with her instincts. She wished to move along in darkness, and revolted at the shameless 'scramble and lottery for fame of the present day,' soliciting only the modest esteem of her friends. She had no desire to buttonhole the world or confide in the public, but was content to take the arm of a chosen few for a while." She was once asked if she was ever interviewed. "No," she replied ; "I hate interviewing. If the papers must talk about me, let them do so when I am dead." (Oliver Locker-Lampson, Kate Greenaway. Some Recollections).

      Archibald Constable and Company,, Westminster, 1897 - First Edition. Westminster, Archibald Constable and Company, 1897. 24 cm x 16 cm. Volume I: XIII, 510 pages / Volume II: XIII, 665 pages. Original Hardcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Fridtjof Nansen (10 October 1861 - 13 May 1930) was a Norwegian explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. In his youth a champion skier and ice skater, he led the team that made the first crossing of the Greenland interior in 1888, cross-country skiing on the island, and won international fame after reaching a record northern latitude of 86°14' during his North Pole expedition of 1893-96. Although he retired from exploration after his return to Norway, his techniques of polar travel and his innovations in equipment and clothing influenced a generation of subsequent Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. Nansen studied zoology at the Royal Frederick University in Christiania (renamed Oslo in 1925), and later worked as a curator at the Bergen Museum where his research on the central nervous system of lower marine creatures earned him a doctorate and helped establish modern theories of neurology. After 1896 his main scientific interest switched to oceanography; in the course of his research he made many scientific cruises, mainly in the North Atlantic, and contributed to the development of modern oceanographic equipment. As one of his country's leading citizens, in 1905 Nansen spoke out for the ending of Norway's union with Sweden, and was instrumental in persuading Prince Carl of Denmark to accept the throne of the newly independent Norway. Between 1906 and 1908 he served as the Norwegian representative in London, where he helped negotiate the Integrity Treaty that guaranteed Norway's independent status. In the final decade of his life, Nansen devoted himself primarily to the League of Nations, following his appointment in 1921 as the League's High Commissioner for Refugees. In 1922 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on behalf of the displaced victims of the First World War and related conflicts. Among the initiatives he introduced was the "Nansen passport" for stateless persons, a certificate recognised by more than 50 countries. He worked on behalf of refugees until his sudden death in 1930, after which the League established the Nansen International Office for Refugees to ensure that his work continued. This office received the Nobel Peace Prize for 1938. Nansen was honoured by many nations, and his name is commemorated in numerous geographical features, particularly in the polar regions.

First Edition, first issue, of the tale subsequently published as THE NIGGER OF THE "NARCISSUS." Conrad wrote this story with the "Nigger" title, but consented to change the title for the American edition (which preceded the English); the publisher's argument was not that the "Nigger" title might be offensive, but rather that the white American book-buying public would not buy the book if they knew it was about a black man. Nonetheless, the original title was restored for all subsequent editions, making this variant-titled edition one of the more sought-after of Conrad's works.~In late 1897, Dodd Mead had a first edition of 1000 copies printed;~because the book was scheduled for publication late in the fall season, the printers were instructed to print both 1897 and 1898 title pages. The number printed with each date is not recorded... It was re-introduced in the spring and listed in Publisher's Weekly on March 12th among the spring publications... Copies of the spring issue were supplied with the 1898 title page [Cagle].~This copy is from the first issue, with an 1897 title page. It is in near-fine condition (minor cracking of the front endpaper, which also has a partially-erased inscription). This is an increasingly-difficult book to find in collectible condition. Cagle A3b.

        The Life and Letters of Harriet Beecher Stowe

      1897 - Cambridge: The Riverside Press, 1897 [1897]. 8vo, [ii], 406 p. 3/4 red leather over marbled boards with top page ends gilt, five raised spine bands and ornate giltwork in each spine compartment with date stamped in gilt at spine heel. First edition of this benchmark Stowe biography, compiled by Stowe's friend, Annie Fields. Fields (1834-1915) used her status as wife of publisher James Thomas Fields to champion authors she knew personally, and was instrumental in shaping the literary careers of numerous 19th century female writers, including Sarah Orne Jewett, Mary Freeman and Emma Lazarus. The present work traces Stowe¿s ancestry and childhood, with detailed accounts of her life in Litchfield, Hartford, Boston and Cincinnati, as well as her marriage, life during war, and with a chapter devoted to the Key to Uncle Tom¿s Cabin. LARGE PAPER EDITION, one of 250 copies, this being copy #107. WITH TWO SIGNED HANDWRITTEN LETTERS BY STOWE TIPPED IN. The first, an undated single fold letter on foolscap, written from 106 Boylston St (Saturday Morning) to a Mr Osgood: "I enclose to you this -- appeal. It is in the direct line of what I am saying to you about making a market for our books in the South.-- (Illegible) with me in furnishing to this library my books. I wrote to you a few years ago enquiring if you had received the Uncle Toms from Hartford. Also-have you sent me my documents. I have heard nothing from you since the day of your interview, Yours Truly, H B Stowe" The second letter is from Hartford, CT, dated Oct 1, 1887, to a Mr Allen: "I have read with great interest your 'Mary, The Queen of the House of David', pencil in hand, and the marks left in the margins show that I have read with interest and discrimination. I should have written before but wished to read slowly. (Illegible) I now thank you for this copy you gave me. Yours Truly, HB Stowe". Minor chipping to leather along both spine joints, minor pitting and scuffing to leather along lower edge of rear board and bottom board edges, light wear to corners. Small discreet blindstamp (Broad Oak, Dedham Massachusetts) to fep, front fly and top of title page, with some faint toning to text block, but an attractive copy of a very scarce and desirable edition.

Der Band ist benannt nach einem \"Negerdorf\" (Ashanti), das im Wiener Prater längere Zeit mit \"lebendem Inventar\" zur Besichtigung aufgestellt worden war. Eines der Themen des Buches ist die Verherrlichung der Freiheit, die der Naturmensch genießt, den Altenberg oftmals, ihn in bewußten Gegensatz zur Gesellschaft und ihren traditionellen Formen stellend, dominieren läßt. Altenberg faßt sich als Mittler zwischen den Kulturen auf, als eine Art Katalysator der Verständigung, die ihm, nicht zuletzt durch das Erlebnis des Eros mit den schwarzen Schönen, bereits zur Selbstverständlichkeit geworden ist. Darüber hinaus will er die Sitten der Ashanti zeigen, die ihm entgegen der Zeitmeinung moralischer, weil ursprünglicher und unverfälschter erscheinen, als die der zivilisierten Gesellschaft (C. Schaefer). Der seltene illustr. Orig.-Umschlag, der erste im S. Fischer Verlag und einer der etsten illustrierten Umschlage überhaupt zeigt zwei Ashanti-Frauen. Versand D: 4,00 EUR Literatur

        CHINESE PHOTO ALBUM, COMMEMMORATING THE VISIT OF THE WELCOMING OF THE AMERICAN M

      [China c.1897.]Half leather over brocade silk, most of spine. gone, else very good, 69 b.w. photos, most are 14.5 x 9 cm.,. some panoramas 8.5 x 30 cm., one large photo 27 x 21.5 cm.. all edge gilt, clean solid copy. Q U I T E R A R E. A very unusual album of photographs showing the tour of what appears to be American Business community members & their wives. Arrival in Kwantung, tour of the Ming tombs, panoramic ! * Photos of early Canton area, sea coast, the Great Wall, a trip up the Yangtze, city streets, river/canal scenes, elegant banquets with High Chinese military & political figures, and the last & largest photograph depicts the whole group of American & Kwantung Chinese Merchant Advisory Board in a commemorative photograph. * Also some excellent images of an early and primitive Macao, lovely panoramas of that old Portuguese city, the hills around city, river & bay with the city rising up the gentle slope, with a good number of old Chinese junks anchored in the harbor. * The Chinese title above the grand panorama reads: "Guang Dong Zhi Xin Ju Haun Yin Mei Guo Sang Hui Ji Nian:" "IN COMMEMMORATION OF THE WELCOMING OF THE AMERICAN MERCHANT ASSOCIATION BY THE CANTON ADVISORY BOARD." * Consists of about 22 pages of tipped in clear, bright & good focus original photographs. The most fascinating of them is the last group memorial photo of the Canton Advisory Board & all of the Americans & their wives, as posed for the camera. In the front row are what one may assume are the most prominent and important members. * Central to one American who has a striking resemblance to the Roosevelt [yes the Famous Roosevelts !!!] family, is a very gaunt & small Chinese holding a long stick, with a flag, wearing a traditional long Chinese robe. One other Chinese is seated in the front row, and he is a be speckled solid man with an alert bearing. Other members are standing behind in ordered rows, with an occasional American naval officer peeking in from the left and a few small Chinese boys also peeking in from the far right in bewilderment. Many of the members also hold some sort of a commemorative flag, with the Advisory Board name embroidered upon it. * The whole group is found before a most handsome and great Chinese architectural building with elaborate windows. The album is without any text whatsoever, but based on the title found on the last photograph, one can deduce the rest. Of particular interest is a nice photo of a Chinese altar. This has an embroidered cloth over it, with Chinese characters that read: Guan Xi Er Si San Nian Men [?] Ji dan or Twenty- third year of Guangxi ie 1897, Birthday to indicate an auspicious day for a religious festive day, thus the Chinese brought the Americans to the temple to celebrate the happy occasion. * Other photographs clearly represent a graphic record of the arrival to Canton, the places they were guided to by the Advisory Board members, archaeological monuments, old shrines, the Great Wall [indicating a trip to the North], temples, Ming tombs, with a host of wonderful street scenes, Macau views, nice photos of the local Chinese and the jaunty Americans in straw hats, canes, spats, while the American women wore great hats, long skirts and long-sleeved white blouses as the posed for the camera. They were often conveyed in mule-drawn carts with a Chinese groom leading them. * Other travel was by ship up and down the canals of Canton, photos of the Government buildings, altars, roof tops [from their hotel room ??] showing the city, the bay with ships, and a trip up the Yangtze [?] or some other great river in a motor boat, showing their Occidental crew beside a very well set table. A poignant view of a slow-paced China of a past century. * Albums of this subject, are always SCARCE, full of great period original photographs and views of China & Macao. A lovely record taken by a member of the American group for posterity. * Color scans can be sent by email. Images displayed may not be the actual copy in stock for sale at any given time; if you want to see the exact image of the book or edition in stock, please request this by email and an image will be returned to you by attachment. * * * * BUY WITH .

        Map of the Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming with full descriptions of mineral resources, etc.

      Custer City, SD [map printed in Philadelphia]: Samuel Scott [map printed by E. P. Noll & Co], 1897. Small octavo. (7 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches). pp. [2], 1-40. 1 folding chromolithographed map (sheet size: 31 x 28 1/2 inches) after Scott, published by E.P. Noll & Co of Philadelphia. Original brown cloth, the upper cover lettered in gilt "Rocks, / Minerals, / and other / Resources / of the / Golden / Black Hills / of / South Dakota / and / Wyoming" Provenance: Annotated in pencil by a single hand. A prospector's copy of this interesting survey, the issue with the coloured map: "the first book on descriptive mineralogy of the Black Hills. Today highly sought after as a Black Hills mining relic" (Loomis). This work was published with the fine map coloured (as here) or uncoloured. Scott's large map of the Black Hills region depicts topographic features and various towns, including Deadwood, Sturgis, and Custer City. "For legibility, and for tracing streams to their sources, this is still a useful map of the Hills" (Jennewein). The present example is annotated in pencil with notes suggesting that the original owner of this map was attempting to set up a prospecting/mining operation near Clifton, Wyoming, in the south west corner of the Black Hills. Further notes on the verso of the map and the facing page suggest that the unidentified individual was looking for manganese. L. Leonard Jennewein, Black Hills Booktrails , 229; Thomas A.

        SOME GERMAN WOODCUTS OF THE FIFTEENTH CENTURY.

      Hammersmith, Kelmscott Press, 1897.Thirty - five reproductions from printed books in the library of William Morris, 1897. 4to, approximately 300 x 215 mm, 12 x 8½ inches, pages: xi, 23 leaves illustrating woodcuts with some text, printed and numbered on rectos only, then pages 24 - 36 and last leaf with colophon, Kelmscott monogram, some pages have a pale watermark in the inner margin, but it is difficult to make out the design. Printed in red and black in Golden type, bound in plain dark blue cloth of the period, cut out paper title mounted on upper cover, edges untrimmed. Binding a little rubbed and scratched with a few small indentations to upper cover, head of spine bumped, first page of the woodcuts has a shallow crease to lower corner, a few other light creases to margins of pages with woodcuts, not affecting images, edges of pages have slight rippling, pale age - browning to endpapers, otherwise a clean crisp copy. NOT IN THE ORIGINAL KELMSCOTT BINDING. Of these thirty - five reproductions twenty - nine were all that were done of a series chosen by Mr. Morris to illustrate a catalogue of his library, and the other six were prepared by him for an article in the 4th number of Bibliographica, part of which is reprinted as an introduction to the book. The process blocks (with one exception) were made by Walker & Boutall, and are of the same size as the original cuts. Limited edition of 225 copies plus 8 vellum copies, the limitation not printed in the book. See Willan Peterson, A Bibliography of the Kelmscott Press, pages 131 - 134, No. A49. The binding is of the time and the paper label looks like paper and type used by the Kelmscott Press. According to Peterson the book sold out and orders kept coming in, and many customers were disappointed so it could have been a rejected copy due to a small crease in the margin of the first illustration? Obviously this is speculation. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.
