        Sketch Map of the Turco-Greek Frontier and Adjoining Districts

      London: published on behalf of the War Office by Edward Stanford,, 1897. London: published on behalf of the War Office by Edward Stanford,, 1897. Coloured map, dissected into 12 panels and mounted on linen folded in the original red cloth case with paper label with inked title - "Turco Greek Frontier before the War of 1897" - to the upper panel. Map opens 570 × 604 mm. Just a little rubbed, but overall very good. First and only edition of this unusual and uncommon semi-official map, COPAC has just BL and University of London, OCLC adds BnF only. The Greco-Turkish war of 1897, known as the "Black '97" in Greece, was sparked by the intercommunal unrest on Crete and concluded in defeat for the outnumbered and outgunned Greeks. However, the Treaty of Constantinople, which concluded hostilities, was considered a diplomatic victory for the them in that although they were subjected to heavy reparations, and lost Northern Thessaly to the Ottoman Empire, they retained Southern Thessaly, and Crete was made an autonomous state, under Ottoman suzerainty, but with Prince George of Greece as its first High Commissioner. This latter settlement was imposed by the Great Powers - Great Britain, France, Italy, and Russia - whose close interest in the progress of "the sick man of Europe" is clearly demonstrated by the production of this map for the War Office. Highly attractive.

        FACING THE FLAG

      , 1897. 1897. New York: F. Tennyson Neely, n.d. [1897]. 7 pp undated ads. Original blue-grey cloth decorated in red and silver. First American Edition, and first edition in English.~It hinges upon the extraordinary adventures of [the kidnapping, by a pirate, of] a mad French inventor who has imagined a diabolical engine of war ["the Roch Fulgurator"] that in its explosive effects surpasses anything in this direction conceived by mortal man... It has an added and highly piquant interest from the fact that Turpin, the celebrated and excitable inventor, declares that he has been libelled in the person of the mad hero of FACING THE FLAG, and is bringing action against Jules Verne... Turpin is the chemist who claimed that he discovered melinite (the explosive now used for shells in the French army and navy). [from a contemporary promotional piece cited in T&M]~The publisher Neely copyrighted this tale in December 1896, and then beginning in January 1897 published it in several unillustrated formats of varying price. The primary binding, quite uncommon, is light green cloth with crossed flags on the front cover; two of the secondary bindings are a plain red binding and this one with a "bull's-eye" on the front cover and a flag-shield on the spine (which Neely also used for some non-Verne books). Sampson Low's illustrated British edition, titled FOR THE FLAG, was not published until October of the same year.~This is a near-fine copy, with scarcely any wear but with minor soil on the two covers. Taves & Michaluk V044; Myers 24.

        [Cyrillic:] Lektsii o rabote glavnykh pishchevaritel'nykh zhelez

      St Petersburg: [Press of the Ministry of Communications,], 1897. St Petersburg: [Press of the Ministry of Communications,], 1897. Octavo. Later Russian half calf, raised bands, spine lettered in blind. Diagrams and tables in the text. Russian blindstamp to front free endpaper, faint inkstamp (mostly erased) to rear pastedown. Extremities lightly rubbed, title leaf cleanly torn across upper outer corner just touching last letter of the author's name, neatly restored on blank verso; a very good copy. First edition of Pavlov's celebrated Lectures on the work of the principal digestive glands, first delivered at St Petersburg the previous year, the greatest contribution to our understanding of the physiology of digestion and the work that led to his being awarded the Nobel prize for medicine in 1905. The book first describes and illustrates the artificial stomach for dogs used by Pavlov to produce gastric juices uncontaminated by food. His earliest experiments involved the reflex action induced in dog by the sight and smell of food, but his later experiments, also described here, tackled the far more complicated process involved in stimuli other than food, for example the rattle of a familiar platter. "From a series of experiments increasingly detailed, and a tabulation of results increasingly exact, he found that virtually any natural phenomenon may be developed into a conditional stimulus to produce the selected response … The elaboration of these experiments and their extension to children demonstrated how great a proportion of human behaviour is explicable as a series of conditioned reflexes. Indeed some psychologists seem nowadays to believe that behaviour is all. Pavlov's results are, indeed, clearly complementary to those of Freud and many regard them as of more fundamental significance" (PMM).

      Bln., S. Fischer 1897.. Bln., S. Fischer 1897.. 4 Bll., 204 S. Ln. d. Zt. m. goldgeprägt. Rückentit. Der seltene illustr. Orig.-Umschlag (Vorder- u. Rückendeckel) sind miteingebunden. - (Collection Fischer, 2) EA. W.- G.² 2; Giebisch-G. 78; Kat. "Jugend in Wien", Marbach 299 - Erste Ausgabe von Altenbergs zweiter Buchveröffentlichung. 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.

        "WAR OF THE WORLDS, THE" In: THE COSMOPOLITAN: A MONTHLY ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE

      Irvington-on-the-Hudson, NY: The Cosmopolitan,. April-December 1897 (volume 22, number 6-volume 24, number 2). original tan wrappers printed in red and back.. Wrappers (printed in pulpy paper) are worn and/or lightly chipped at. spine ends and worn, frayed and/or lightly chipped along overlapping. fore and bottom edges, a few issues have soiling and/or mild stains. to covers, still, this is a very good set overall (some issues closer. to fine, several closer to good), the interiors, printed on high-. quality coated stock which renders the artwork and type in high. detail, are mostly fine, a couple of minor soil marks noted in one. issue. The serial in either COSMOPOLITAN or PEARSON magazine is. usually found in bound up volumes, neither is common as separate. numbers in their original paper wrappers. (#118677). These nine issues of THE COSMOPOLITAN contain the complete American serial publication of "The War of the Worlds," a classic scientific romance, desirable for the many illustrations by Warwick Goble embedded in elaborate wraparound text layouts that were possible in this larger (6 3/4" x 9 1/2") physical format -- vis a vis a smaller octavo book format. This serialized version features a total of fifty-seven unique illustrations by Goble (several are used more than once) -- far more than the fifteen selected for the first U.S. edition (New York: Harper, 1898). (The first edition [London: Heinemann, 1898] had no illustrations.) A must for the serious collector of Wells, interplanetary fiction, future war fiction, the early scientific romance, early visualizations of sf motifs -- a classic such as this marks the intersection of many important categories, not to mention some that are less often connected with it, such as the vampire motif (the aliens use long mechanical tentacles to suck the blood out of human bodies). THE COSMOPOLITAN serial ran simultaneously with its British counterpart in PEARSON'S MAGAZINE.

        The Faerie Queen

      Westminster: Archibald Constable & Co,, 1897-00. Edited from the Original Editions of 1590 and 1596 with an Introduction and Glossary by Kate M. Warren. 6 volumes, octavo (172 × 105 mm). Finely bound in near-contemporary red quarter morocco with pink cloth sides and a gilt rules, spines gilt-tooled with an art nouveau floral design and titles direct, attractive green and gilt florally patterned endpapers and top edges gilt. Frontispiece to each volume: three portrait frontispieces of Spenser and three photographic frontispieces of Spenser-related places in Ireland. Spines a little sunned, corners nicked; an entirely sound set in excellent condition. A lovely set of Spenser's Faerie Queene; the first edition to be edited by literary scholar and anthologist Kate M. Warren, using the original editions of 1590 and 1596, with an introduction and glossary to each book. Volume one bears the presentation bookplate for the Birmingham Oratory school prize (for which this set was likely bound) to "T. Fitzherbert-Brockholes, Fifth Form Prize, Midsummer 1913, [Father] John Norris". Thomas Fitzherbert-Brockholes, born 1887, died, less than two years after receiving this school prize book, from wounds after the Battle of Neuve Chapelle, on Sunday 14th March 1915, which was Mothering Sunday, if Spenser's own lines, "and whenas death shall all the world subdue, / our love shall live, and later life renew" (Amoretti #75), do not make this poignant enough. A very attractive and affecting copy.

        Original Art: Veiled King on Throne Surrounded by Nymphs and Soldiers

      1897. Original art. Watercolor. Image matted to approximately 13.25" x 17.5". Framed. Signed lower right: "A.C. 97." Matted in tan suede (preserving the worn, yellow silk matte below). A couple of light scratches on the image, still fine. A wonderful and haunting image of a veiled king on his thrown, surrounded by diaphanously clad (or altogether unclad) serving women. Born and trained in France, Castaigne came to America where he was active in San Francisco until the earthquake, then moved to New York where he was a prolific illustrator for both magazines and books, particularly those published by the Century Company. Perhaps his best known illustrations are the striking two-page illustrations in the American edition of Gaston Leroux's Phantom of the Opera. .

        Maxim aerial Torpedo. A new system of throwing high exposives from ordnance, and some recent improvements in smokeless powders

      Lon., 1897.. b/w photographic frontispiece, b/w plates. Hudson Maxim was the brother of Hiram (Maxim machine gun) and a developer of modern smokeless powder and other high explosives, the rights to which he eventually sold to Dupont. In this work, apparently published privately, his “aerial torpedoes” are essentially giant naval guns charged with his new smokeless powder, designed to shoot massive shells (up to 1000 pounds) loaded with gun cotton. The photographic frontispiece shows partially burned particles of smokeless powder. The pages are printed on recto only. Text and illustrations are precise, technical, yet still understandable - as Hudson, with rigorous logic, frames his airtight argument for smokeless powder and aerial torpedoes. With the bookplate of Wican Library on the front pastedown, their blindstamp in the lower corner of the title page, small ink stamp on the verso, and no other markings. Bound in blue cloth with gold cover and spine lettering. Light wear to spine ends. Most unusual.
