        Empire Makers and Breakers: A Scene at the South Africa Committee

      1897. Stuff (Assumed to be Pseudonym of Henry Charles Seppings-Wright [1850-1937]). Empire Makers and Breakers: A Scene at the South Africa Committee, 1897. Supplement to Vanity Fair, November 25, 1897. 13-1/2" x 19-1/2" Color lithograph, attractively matted and glazed in recent wood frame with gilt inside border and black outside edge. Photocopy of accompanying Vanity Fair essay and Certificate of Authenticity affixed to rear. Image vivid, clean and free of creases and tears. A well-preserved copy of a scarce item in a handsome frame. * A superb portrayal of British pride when the Empire was at its zenith, this image relates to the deliberations of the South African Committee at the close of the Second Matabele War, 1896-1897, which consolidated British control of Rhodesia (present-day Zimbabwe). The most notable figure in this image is Cecil Rhodes, the Prime Minister of the Cape Colony and an ardent imperialist, who stands in the center of the image with a glass. As the map in the background indicates, the committee is discussing its plan to push into the Boer states, most notably Transvaal and Orange. This action triggered the Second Boer War, 1899-1902, which introduced the concentration camp and scorched-earth tactics and ended with British domination of South Africa. Vanity Fair was published weekly from 1869 to 1914. It is best-known today for its caricatures of notable people and satirical depictions of current events. With few exceptions these were produced by a series of artists under pseudonyms, most notably "Spy" and "Ape." Approximately 2,400 caricatures were published in all, mostly as single pages. Vanity Fair also published 21 special numbers with double-page prints. "Empire Makers and Breakers" was originally issued in one of these. The prints were also issued individually. The absence of a central vertical crease indicates that our copy is one of these. The identity of "Stuff" has never been determined, but he is generally believed to be Henry Charles Seppings-Wright.

The making of such transfers is not original to me, but it took a good deal of experimenting to so perfect the process ... and what magnificent illustrations they are embodying all the beauty and perfections of the specimens themselves!" (From the preface). "Thousands of Lepidoptera were killed in the process of producing 500 copies of S.F. Denton's work.... Conservation was not uppermost in people's minds at this time" (Gilbert p. 126).//Nissen ZBI, 1079.

        4 Autograph Letters, signed, to Grant Allen

      n.p., 1890-1897 - A fascinating group of letters whose scope ranges from animism and tree worship to private topics. In one letter, Frazer thanks Allen "for the kind present of 'The Attis'" (Allen's translation of The Attis of Caius Valerius Catullus - with dissertations on the myth of Attis, on the origin of tree-worship -, 1892). Frazer later devoted a section to this subject in Adonis, Attis, Osiris. Studies in the History of Oriental Religion (1906). Elsewhere, Frazer observes, "I should be pleased and proud to make your acquaintance - Whether the profit would be mutual, is, I fear, much more than doubtful. I am no talker and I am afraid you would find me an exceedingly dull fellow. The few ideas I have occur at long intervals, and though, by being stored up and set out together in a book, they make a little show, yet the intervals (which form much the greater part of my life) are times of 'long barren silence' and intellectual vacuity. Not that I am idle at such times, I am reading and studying. But the process of absorbing ideas, however pleasurable to the absorber, is hardly interesting to the bystander. Forgive me for saying so much about myself - It must be very disappointing, after reading a book with interest or even admiration, to find that the writer is a very dull person." The recipient is Charles Grant Blairfindie Allen (1848-1899), a prolific Canadian-born writer, reviled in the mid 1890s as "the prophet of the new hedonism." As Vickery notes, discussing The Attis, "the first to make extensive use of Frazer's ideas was Grant Allen - he drew heavily on The Golden Bough, which he calls 'a profound and epoch-making work' - Allen's ideas are of less importance than is the swiftness with which he absorbed and applied the perspectives afforded classical literature by The Golden Bough." Frazer autograph material is quite uncommon, especially with such good content 4 vols., 12mo. 1-1/2 to 4 pp. . Vickery, The Literary Impact of The Golden Bough, pp. 88-89

        An Unknown People

      London: [Privately published]. 1897. First. First edition. Small octavo. 31pp. Flexible red-brown cloth titled in gilt. Faint spot at the top corner of the front board, else very near fine. The first separate publication, re-printing an article from the July, 1897 issue of The Reformer. One of the first serious essays attempting to solicit sympathy, understanding, and tolerance of homosexuals, predating the term with the word "homogenic." An Unknown People focuses more on understanding the sensibilities of gays, rather than on their actual sexual activities. The essay later became Chapter Two of Carpenter's book The Intermediate Sex (1908). An extremely uncommon edition of a key text in the history of human sexuality, written by Britain's first gay rights activist. .

        REPORT OF PROCEEDINGS IN HER BRITANNIC MAJESTY'S COURT FOR JAPAN RELATING TO THE DEATH OF WALTER RAYMOND HALLOWELL CAREW

      Japan Gazette 1897 - Hardback. Reprinted from the Japan Gazette. Walter and Edith Carew lived in a small enclave of expatriates in Yokohama, Japan where Carew had business interests. In the autumn of 1896 Walter Carew was suddenly taken ill. Biliousness was diagnosed, but after a brief improvement he relapsed. The doctor's puzzlement was relieved by a diagnosis for his patient's illness provided in a letter sent to him. It read, 'Three bottles of arsenic in one week. Maruya.' But it was too late to save Carew, who died of arsenical poisoning. At the inquest a Japanese chemist, Maruya, sender of the letter, stated that he had supplied several bottles of arsenic in solution, complying with Mrs Carew's written instructions. Mrs Carew claimed that her husband suffered from a mysterious illness, unbeknown to his doctor, for which he found relief by taking doses of arsenic. Mrs Carew was arrested, and charged with murdering her husband. Her trial, under the judicial authority of the British Consul in Yokohama, began in January 1897. Mrs Carew concocted a story about a fictitious woman who she said had been intimate with her husband. Letters purporting to have been written by this woman to Walter Carew were denounced in court as forgeries made by Mrs Carew. Edith Carew was found guilty, sentence of death being commuted to penal servitude for life. Contents include : Inquest; Preliminary Examination of Edith May Hallowell Carew; Trial of Edith May Hallowell Carew; Appendix; (342pp.) Preliminary Examination of Mary Esther Jacob (23pp.). From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Rebound, browned edges, tiny embossed stamp on tp. A Vg+ copy of an extremely rare title.

This volume contains about forty fairy tales, including "The Cat's Elopement," "The Snow-queen," "The Cunning Shoemaker," "The Wounded Lion," "The Troll's Daughter" and "The Merry Wives."~This copy is in near-fine condition -- with the almost-unavoidable problem with this particular color, which is that the pink spine is faded (though the gilt there remains rather bright); this copy does not have a tissue between frontispiece and title page, but that is not necessarily a bad thing, since such tissues typically turn up heavily foxed. NCBEL 1108.

        THE PHYSICIAN

      London: Printed at the Chiswick Press, 1897. n. Hardcover. A Special Presentation Binding Given to Queen Mary. 222 x 146 mm (8 3/4 x 5 3/4"). 4 p.l., 78 pp., [1] leaf. ESPECIALLY APPEALING DARK GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, BY THE DOVES BINDERY (stamp-signed and dated "18 C-S 97" on rear turn-in), covers with double gilt fillet border accented along the sides with dots and leaves, each of the four corners with a bouquet of tulips arising from a triangle of stippling; raised bands, spine compartments tooled with a long-stemmed tulip on a stippled ground, turn-ins with three gilt rules and tulip-and-leaf cornerpieces, all edges gilt. In an old (the original?) fleece-lined black folding cloth box with printed title label on spine. With two plates showing ground plans for Act II and Act III. Front pastedown with the engraved bookplate of Princess Mary; first preliminary blank inscribed by the author "To H.R.H. / Princess [Victoria] Mary [Augusta Louise Olga Pauline Claudine Agnes] Duchess of Teck / from her obedient servant / Henry Arthur Jones / in grateful remembrance / of her kind presence at / the first performance of / 'The Physician' March 25th / 1897"; second preliminary blank with autographs of the cast of the play; third preliminary blank with the later (re-gifting) inscription "To Mr. Henry J. Bell / in remembrance of / Princess Mary [Adelaide of Cambridge] / from / Victoria Mary." Below the inscription are the autographs of the princess' three brothers, Adolphus of Teck (signed simply "Teck"), Francis of Teck, and Alexander George of Teck. For the binding: Tidcombe 299. The typical offsetting from turn-ins, but A VERY FINE COPY--immaculate internally, and the binding perfectly preserved, the leather almost mirror-like in its luster. This is an elegant Doves binding, probably commissioned by the author for presentation to Princess Mary of Teck, the future Queen Consort to King George V, and enhanced with important autographs. The elegant design of the exterior is recognizable at once as Doves work, mainly because it features Cobden-Sanderson's most frequently used tulip tool, 3b, employed here (as typical) with two small dots tooled above. And as for the interior, this item has what Charles Whittingham and his Chiswick Press normally provide: high quality press work and fine textured paper with ample margins. A popular English dramatist, Henry Arthur Jones (1851-1929) had his detractors. As his daughter writes in "Taking the Curtain Call: The Life and Letters of Henry Arthur Jones," Oscar Wilde declared that "there are three rules for writing plays. The first rule is not to write like Henry Arthur Jones; the second and third rules are the same." Despite Wilde's deadly witticism, "The Physician" is not without its merits. It premiered at London's Criterion Theatre on 25 March 1897, with a cast reading like a "Who's Who" of the English theater; one of our cast signatories is Marion Terry, who played leading roles in more than 125 plays. As the wife of King-Emperor George V, Victoria Mary Augusta Louise Olga Pauline Claudine Agnes of Teck (1867-1953) was Queen Consort of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions, and Empress of India, and before her husband's accession, she was successively Duchess of York, Duchess of Cornwall, and Princess of Wales. (Her lengthy concatenation of names suitably reflects the exalted nature of these various titles.) After George V's death in 1936, she became queen mother when her eldest son Edward became king-emperor, but to her bitter disappointment, he abdicated later the same year to marry the twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson.

        A collection of 185 very fine, mostly hand-coloured, drawings of Coleoptera collected by the French naturalist August Sallé (1820-1896) in Central and South America and the West Indies, preserved in a contemporary 4to (323 x 235mm) half calf binding.

      This highly interesting collection belonged to René Oberthür and is probably put together by him. On the first leaf we find the following note written by him 'Les dessins originaux et planches d'insectes contenus dans ce volume proviennent en totalité de mon vieil ami Auguste Sallé; je les ai acquis à la vente qui a eu lieu bien après sa mort, fin février 1897. Rennes 1897 René Oberthür'. The very fine drawings, apart from a very few which are outline drawings, are superbly hand-coloured and by the best artists of the period and many are signed by the artist. The following names are found: Poujade, Wapler, Nicolet, Mignaux, Vaillant, Dumeril. The size of the drawings vary and the large drawings are 17 x 27 cm. and the smaller ones 6,5 x 10 cm. A few are dated, the earliest one is dated 1859 and the last one 1878. Occasionally the country or place of origin is mentioned such as: Mexique, Haiti, Amer. Mérid., Ste Lucie, St Domingue, Texas, Honduras, Jamaique, Guadeloupe./Auguste Salle (1820-1896) was a French traveller and entomologist, specializing in Coleoptera. He travelled the Southern States of the USA, Central America, especially Mexico, and Venezuala and the West Indies. After his return he set up as a natural history and insect dealer and had close connections with the important entomologists of the day such as René Oberthür. "F.D. Godman and O. Salvin made use of Salle's Central American collections in compilation of 'Biologia Centrali Americana' (1879-1915). He was a Fellow of the Société Entomologique de France, and of the Entomological Society of London" (Harvey, Gilbert and Martin p. 179)./ /Provenance: René Oberthür famous French entomologist, with his note on first leaf. The work was purchased by Kikumaro Okano from our company in 1971 and was advertised in our catalogue 159.
