        THE BOOK OF THE THOUSAND NIGHTS AND A NIGHT In Twelve Volumes with IMPORTANT AUTOGRAPHED, SIGNED LETTER FROM BURTON TO LARKING [dedicatee of vol. VII) Inserted

      London: H. S. Nichols Ltd, 1897. An outstanding "association" copy including an important original autographed letter (in Burton's hand), signed from Burton to his friend and dedicatee of (the original) vol. VII, John Wingfield Larking. The set includes the bookplate of R.N. W. L. (Reginald Nesbitt Wingfield Larking) grandson of J. W. Larking (see note on provenance). Burton famously spent five weeks in Alexandria, staying at "the Sycamores" the home of John Larking, the Consul who himself "lived in half- Oriental style". It was here that Burton made his final preparations for his pilgrimage to Meccah and Al-Madinah. The letter was written the day Burton completed vol. VII of the Nights (30/03/1886) and was ostensibly written to inform Larking of his intention to dedicate this volume to him. Transcript as follows:- "Trieste March 30/86 [Arabic text in black] My dear Larking I was delighted to see the Academy (March 20) that you are to the fore and are editing Halsted's Kent. Viva [single word?] ammi! Let me hope that you will not be offended if I dedicate to you a vol. of The Arabian Nights with a delicate allusion to my final preparation for the Pilgrimage under The Sycamores. We returned from Tangier (a hideous hole like Suez 50 years ago) on March 23rd. Today I send home vol. VII and in a week or ten days time vol. VIII. I hope to be in London in May-June and have time to be with my friends, not scamping to duty and pleasure as I was obliged to do in my last visit. [single word?] luck to the venture! and with love and [single word?] to you and yours I am [three words?] sincerely R. F. Burton. " And the Dedication to volume 7 reads:- "I INSCRIBE THESE PAGES TO AN OLD FRIEND, JOHN W. LARKING (WHILOME OF ALEXANDRIA), IN WHOSE HOSPITABLE HOME ("THE SYCAMORES") I MADE MY FINAL PREPARATIONS FOR A PILGRIMAGE TO MECCAH AND AL-MADINAH. R. F. BURTON." The Library Edition (First illustrated edition). Translated from the original Arabic edition by Captain Sir R. F. Burton and edited by Leonard C. Smithers. Complete in 12 volumes, including 71 plates from the original oil paintings by Letchford, including a portrait of Burton. Also issued with reproductions of the title-pages from the original 16 vol. Benares Kamashastra edition. Uniformly bound in the publisher's red half-morocco, with gilt decoration and lettering to the spines. Very good with a little general wear and light rubbing to some edges and joints; a couple of volumes slightly more worn to head of spines with minimal chipping, vol. I with a very short crack to head of the front joint, but all volumes remain strong and firmly bound. Contents, clean and tight, matching marble endpapers with a small square bookplate bearing the initials R.N.W.L (Larking); with light spotting to the prelims and last few pages and just a little scattered spots to a few further pages, all plates present and clean with titled tissue guards, not generally affected by staining or spotting. Neatly tipped in between the frontispiece plate of Burton and the title page to vol. I is the Burton letter; this has been historically reinforced to the edges with glassine tape (could be removed). [Provenance with the bookplate of RNWL - Reginald Nesbitt Wingfield Larking (1868-1943) son of Lieutenant-Colonel Cuthbert Larking (1842-1910) son of John Wingfield Larking (1802 - 1891).] An outstanding copy. . Signed by Author to Letter. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Very Good/No Dust Jacket. Illus. by Letchford, Albert. 8vo.

        Der Baseler Congress

      Wien: Verlag der Welt, 1897. First Edition. Softcover. Good. 17 x 21 cm, 22 pp, stapled binding. Original wrappers present but detached, somewhat edgeworn. Text clean, complete, and tightly bound. Herzl's account (in German) of the First Zionist Congress, held in Basel in August 1897. Herzl convened and chaired the Congress, which came about largely as a result of the publication of his seminal work Der Judenstaat (1896), which called for the establishment of a permanent Jewish homeland. Printing and the Mind of Man (# 381): "It was Herzl's book which really crystallized the idea of a national home for the Jews. Two conceptions had prevailed hitherto: either that of the ghetto, presupposing an unbridgeable gulf between Jews and Gentiles, or that of assimilation, which meant a complete acceptance by the Jews of their environment, leading eventually to their becoming a part of the the people among whom they lived. Herzl took a different view. By his work he transformed the Jewish people from a passive community into a positive political force....In consequence of the publication of his book, a congress was held in Basle in 1897, attended by 206 delegates from all parts of the world and the Zionist organization was founded. The movement became world wide.

In it, Mahan sought to resurrect Horatio Nelson as a national hero in Britain and used the book as a platform for expressing his views on naval strategy and tactics.Alfred Thayer Mahan (September 27, 1840 ? December 1, 1914) was a United States Navy flag officer, geostrategist, and historian, who has been called "the most important American strategist of the nineteenth century. " His concept of "sea power " was based on the idea that countries with greater naval power will have greater worldwide impact. The concept had an enormous influence in shaping the strategic thought of navies across the world, especially in the United States, Germany, Japan and Britain, ultimately causing a European naval arms race in the 1890s, which included the United States. His ideas still permeate the U.S. Navy Doctrine. Several ships have been named USS Mahan, including the lead vessel of a class of destroyers.

        The Decoration of Houses

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1897 First and only edition, first printing, first (American) issue, in Garrison's "B" binding (priority undetermined). Publisher's pink, white, light green and blue marbled boards, paper label lettered in black to the spine, light green top stain. Near fine, with some light rubbing to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, bright boards, former owner's inscriptions to the front endpapers, sturdy binding, clean pages. Overall, a fresh and unsophisticated copy. Garrison A2.I.a Wharton's second book, The Decoration of Houses is an interior design manual that she wrote in collaboration with architect Ogden Codman, Jr., whom she worked with to redesign her Newport, Rhode Island home. Specifically, Wharton and Codman denounce the Victorian bric-a-brac decorative style in favor of a more natural and simple classical style. As the authors explain in their preface: "Rooms may be decorated in two ways: by a superficial application of ornament totally independent of structure, or by means of those architectural features which are part of the organism of every house, inside as well as out." By focusing on balance and comfort, Wharton and Codman argue that interior design can achieve an attractive aesthetic without cumbersome decoration. Notably, this text is illustrated with black and white images of Wharton's preferred design style, including many rooms in notable European palaces which are "as simple as those in any private home.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

      1897. Original photograph album. String-tied Boards. Very Good. This album of photographs taken by Captain Edward D.P. Nickels, Master of the "May Flint," contains 15 albumen print photographs with handwritten captions, mounted one per leaf, with tissue guards (and one unmounted), in a string-tied album made by the Captain's wife, Emma Curtis Nickels. Green paper boards, 5.75" x 7.25". The photographs vary in size from 4.5" x 3.5" to 3.25" x 3.25" These original 1897 photographs show the "May Flint" in the Delaware River and in the aftermath of a hurricane at the New York Bight, where Long Island and New Jersey form an upside-down L around shallow waters, a hurricane alley. (The "May Flint," originally an iron steamship named "Persian Monarch," had been enroute three years earlier from London to New York when a terrific storm drove her onto the beach at Long Island on 3 May 1894. After the storm, she was broken up, re-launched, and sold. All engines were removed. She was converted to a sailing vessel and renamed "May Flint" by her new owners, Flint & Co.). The photographs in this album are captioned: "May Flint" in the Delaware River; Next morning after the hurricane; Main and Mizen from the top gallant forecastle; Clearing wreckage at the Main; Wreckage about the deck; Bending the double Topsail; Hoisting main Topmast; Taken lying off Staten Island; &c. Captain Nickels, a Boston commander of high repute and much experience, was master of the clipper ship "Flying Fish" as well as captain of the "May Flint." ~~ Laid into this album are three cabinet-card photographs. The first is of Captain Nickels, made in his home town of Searsport, Maine, and signed [by him?] on the verso. The second cabinet card is of the Captain's wife, Emma Curtis Nickels, done by Morse of San Francisco, and signed [by her?] on the verso. The third photograph is of the Captain in later years, done by Taber of San Francisco, inscribed and signed by the Captain on the verso: "With the compliments of the season / David Nickels." The cabinet cards range in size from 6.5" x 4" to 8.5" x 5.25"

        The Origin of the Species By Means of Natural Selection

      London: John Murray, 1897. Definitive 6th Edition which includes all the final revisions by Darwin. Original green cloth with covers decoratively stamped in blind and spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. Some spotting to front board, otherwise an excellent example of this rare book with cloth and gilt very fresh and bright. One of the most important scientific works of the last two centuries, On the Origin of Species was (and still is) also one of the most controversial. The book caused an uproar immediately upon its publication. Before publication of the Origin, Darwin wrote to his publisher John Murray:' It may be conceit, but I believe the subject will interest the public.' The first edition of 1250 copies sold out quickly. With copies of the First English Edition approaching 6 figures, this very nice copy of the 6th edition is an appealing alternative. Freeman 451. 6th Edition (49th Thousand). Very Good.
