Neat ownership presentation on the front free end paper dated 1927. The text is shaken in one place, the cloth has light wear and a small stain else it is in very good condition, and unusually nice for this title. Protected in a custom leather-backed clamshell case. Hafiz, or Hafez, was a 14th century Persian poet, a master of the likes of Omar Khayyam. He used wine as a concept to describe the intoxicating oneness with the divine. Gertrude Bell has rendered his poetry into sublime English. "Lady, thou hast my heart within thy hand..." This is Bell's second book, with her extensive introduction covering over one third of the text, and notes following the poetry. Less than 20 years later she was in Baghdad, as T. E. Lawrence was in Cairo, both working for Britain to resolve the Arab War.

      Boston: The Eastburn Press, 165 Devonshire Street, 1897. Single sheet, 24 x 6 1/2 in. Lists approximately 60 stocks and about a dozen bonds and mortgages with number of shares and par value. In pencil is written perhaps the price they achieved and of note, American Bell Telephone Co. seemed to have achieved the highest bid against the par value. The panic of 1893 began what was called the Great Depression until it would cede that title to a later panic. It lasted until 1897. This broadside seems to show the beginning steps of recovery.

Darunter das Gedicht von Jakob Wassermann: Wär ich reich, hätt‘ ich Geld, / Mir gehörte die ganze Welt! / Müsste jeden Tag vierspännig fahren, / Ein Heer von Dienern um mich scharen, / Thät mir einen Palast erbauen / Und nichts thun, als zum Fenster hinausschauen; / Ein goldnes Bett müsst ich besitzen / Und lauter Röcke von echten Spitzen / Und lauter Teller von Edelsteinen / Und einen Koch, einen recht feinen, - / Mir gehörte die ganze Welt, / Wär ich reich, hätt‘ ich Geld. Seh ich die harten Thaler fliegen, / Die in den Kammern der Reichen liegen / Und wir haben kaum ein Stück Brot zu beissen, / Will mir schier das Herz zerreissen. / Seh ich die Leute auf allen Gassen / Mit frohen Gesichtern und vollen Kassen, / Seh ich die schön gekleideten Frauen, / Die kaum nach unsereinem schauen, / Seh ich die Läden voll Silber und Gold: / Da ist’s kein Wunder, wenn man grollt / Und an den lieben Gott nimmer denkt, / Der uns kaum einen kurzen Sonntag schenkt. Hab einen guten Schatz in der Stadt; / Oft kommt er abends sterbensmatt / Und zählt mir ein paar Groschen hin / Von seinem spärlichen Wochengewinn, / Oder ein Bröschlein oder ein Tuch, / Oder kölnisches Wasser für den Geruch, / Da steck ich dann die Nase hinein / Und denke: lieber Gott, reich lass mich sein, / Dass ich auch meinem Schatz was kaufen kann, / Denn er ist so ein gutherziger Mann. / Und sind wir auch nicht kirchlich getraut, / Bin ich ihm doch eine treue Braut. Wär ich reich, hätt‘ ich Geld, / Mir gehörte die ganze Welt! / Linchen kriegte ein neues Kleid, / Das rote wird ihr zu kurz mit der Zeit, / Lieschen braucht ein Jacket schon lange, / Das Mädel wächst wie eine Bohnenstange, / Der Vater bekäm ein Pfeifenrohr / Und ein gemaltes Schild überm Thor: / Christian Kurz, Damenschuhfabrikant, / Das klingt so vornehm, nach Reichtum und Glück, / O, wär ich reich, hätt ich Geld, / Mir gehörte die ganze Welt.

        Les Jours et les Nuits. Roman d'un Déserteur.

      Paris: Société du Mercure de Frances, 1897 - Octavo (182 x 118 mm). Early 20th-century dark green half morocco, titles gilt to spine, vellum sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. With the original wrappers bound in. Very slight tanning to spine, very few trivial marks and scuffs, front joint just starting at the bottom, but an excellent copy, internally a little tanned but the bound-in wrappers bright. First edition, first printing, with the author's justification de tirage "A.J." stamp to the colophon, of the first novel by Parisian proto-surrealist Alfred Jarry (1873-1907), best remembered for his notorious "Ubu Roi" plays and the invention of Pataphysics, as well as for riding a bicycle through the streets of Paris painted green in honour of his "green goddess", absinthe. This novel draws upon his experiences in the army - he had been drafted in in 1894, but proved such a disruptively comic force clowning around on parade in a uniform far too big for him that he was excused from drills and eventually discharged. First editions are scarce (with OCLC listing just 10 copies held in libraries worldwide), and this is a very attractive copy with the bright yellow original wrappers bound in.

        Photograph album of Shanghai, 1897-1899

      Oblong quarto (240 x 340 mm), in defective original binding of gilt ruled half morocco over pebbled cloth, now lacking the upper board and spine, containing 97 photographs laid down recto and verso of 22 leaves of thick card; recto of first leaf with ownership inscription of 'John Jackson / Shanghai 1897'; the photographs comprise 22 large format (220 x 275 mm) albumen photographs of scenes in Shanghai during the celebrations for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897, mostly taken on the Bund, probably by a professional photographer; 3 large format (210 x 285 mm)silver albumen photographs of the Shanghai Volunteer Corps Artillery, Light Horse and Infantry on their parade ground; 2 large format (195 x 270 mm) albumen photographs of Shanghai harbour showing the China Navigation Company's ship Pekin and a dredge at work; 2 silver albumen photographs (145 x 100 mm) taken in a studio, both group portraits of identified British members of the Shanghai Fire Brigade; and 68 silver gelatin photographs in smaller format (most 90 x 120 mm) presumably taken by John Jackson with two of his own cameras between the years 1897 and 1899, including candid shots of the Shanghai Rowing Regatta, Diamond Jubilee celebrations, street scenes, the Shanghai Fire Brigade in action, upriver on the Yangtze, the French Bund, European soldiers and sailors, Chinese prisoners etc; all photographs have accompanying captions in ink or pencil and many are dated; the top, bottom and fore-edge margins of most leaves with mild water staining (generally encroaching 100 mm from the edges, leaving the majority of the photographs unaffected but making a few of the captions difficult to read); a handful of photographs with some surface loss and later pen trials on a couple of leaves; the majority of photographs are in good condition. A rare visual documentation of Shanghai in the years immediately prior to the Boxer Rebellion, seen through the eyes of an Anglophone visitor. Unfortunately we know little about the album's compiler, John Jackson, aside from the fact that he appears to have been a rowing enthusiast and, obviously, a keen amateur photographer. He was almost certainly working in Shanghai in a civilian capacity, as his ownership signature does not include any military or naval rank. Furthermore, it is possible that Jackson was an Australian, since the album has been in Australia for many decades and now sees the light of day for the first time.

Gertrude Bell has rendered his poetry into sublime English. "Lady, thou hast my heart within thy hand..." This is Bell's second book, with her extensive introduction covering over one third of the text, and notes following the poetry. Less than 20 years later she was in Baghdad, as T. E. Lawrence was in Cairo, both working for Britain to resolve the Arab War.

        Calculating Machines: Recent & Prospective Developments.

      Overview Details & Condition First edition, first impression and a lovely copy of "the first booklet on electronic computers separately published by a conventional publisher, and also one of the earliest discussions of how these machines could be used in scientific calculations" (Origins of Cyberspace 649).In addition to his significant contributions to ballistics and quantum theory, British mathematician Douglas Hartree (1897-1958) was also a leader in efforts to automate scientific calculations. He was "involved in the development of the digital electronic computer, which emerged from wartime attempts to automate calculation further... In 1946 Hartree's advice was sought in the application of the United States army's ENIAC (electronic numerical integrator and computer) to the production of ballistic tables" (ODNB). This booklet was based on his experience with ENIAC, and describes in detail the machine's operation, its memory capacity, how problems are encoded for it to process, and what types of mathematical questions it is currently addressing. It also offers hints of future applications, such as research in fluid dynamics, statistics, number theory, and economics, where the burden of manual calculation was previously too great to allow in-depth analysis. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1947. Octavo. Original cream wrappers printed in brown. 2 plates from photographs, equations and charts within the text. Near-contemporary ownership inscription to the title. Wrappers a little toned, a couple of tiny dents to the upper wrapper. A fresh and attractive copy in excellent condition.

        Lovely Presentation Portrait Photograph, by Carlo Brogi (1850-1925), Signed 'Elena', (1873-1952, daughter of Nikola I, 1841-1921, from 1860 ruler as Prince, from 1910 as King of Montenegro, and wife of Vittorio Emanuele III, 1869-1947, King of Italy 1900-1946)

      1897 - showing her in profile seated, wearing an elegant gown with a fur trimmed wrap and a tiara, she has her gloved hands folded in her lap, the photo is inscribed along the top margin in French, 'More than love and better than love! G.C.', in apparently a later, upright, probably Italian hand, attractively penned in mostly single letters, the portrait 9" x 6" in leather presentation frame, 12" x 8½", no place, no date but circa Transcription Plus que l'amour et mie[u]x que l'amour ! G.C. Translation (More than love and better than love ! G.C.) The charming inscription is a proverbial expression for friendship, echoing Madame Thiroux d'Arconville's "et l'amitié qui naît de l'amour, vaut encore mieux que l'amour même", "and friendship born of love, is worth yet more than love itself", (De l'amitié, 1764). Carlo Brogi (1850 - 1925) was an Italian photographer, son of photographer Giacomo Brogi (1822-1881). He did numerous portraits, landscapes and views of cities. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Les Jours et les Nuits. Roman d'un Déserteur.

      Paris: Société du Mercure de Frances,, 1897. Octavo (182 x 118 mm). Early 20th-century dark green half morocco, titles gilt to spine, vellum sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. With the original wrappers bound in. Very slight tanning to spine, very few trivial marks and scuffs, front joint just starting at the bottom, but an excellent copy, internally a little tanned but the bound-in wrappers bright. First edition, first printing, with the author's justification de tirage "A.J." stamp to the colophon, of the first novel by Parisian proto-surrealist Alfred Jarry (1873-1907), best remembered for his notorious "Ubu Roi" plays and the invention of Pataphysics, as well as for riding a bicycle through the streets of Paris painted green in honour of his "green goddess", absinthe. This novel draws upon his experiences in the army - he had been drafted in in 1894, but proved such a disruptively comic force clowning around on parade in a uniform far too big for him that he was excused from drills and eventually discharged. First editions are scarce (with OCLC listing just 10 copies held in libraries worldwide), and this is a very attractive copy with the bright yellow original wrappers bound in.

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire Année complète 1897 EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Bureaux de la Revue, 1897. Fine. Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1897, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding editor to bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, gilt small iron and double gold in net queue.Douze numbers from January to December 1897. conservées.Chaque number Covers Edition is illustrated with a woodcut of literary bichrome.Contributions René Boylesve, Paul Fort, Francis Jammes, Henri Ghéon, Remy de Gourmont, etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine owned by the first wave of little magazines Symbolists. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular contributors, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), the Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. The Hermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time as the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] which deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his state of mind symbolist, employees are more interested in poetry than novel. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, says that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddles the fin de siècle aestheticism and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1897. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie bichrome. Contributions littéraires de René Boylesve, Paul Fort, Francis Jammes, Henri Ghéon, Remy de Gourmont, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

        Through Unknown African Countries: The First Expedition from Somaliland to Lake Lamu

      New York: Edward Arnold, 1897. Hardcover. Very Good Plus. Hardcover. Signed by author with two important letters inserted. First Edition of Donaldson Smith's enthralling narrative about his journey in 1894-95 through unexplored areas of Africa, ranging from the Gulf of Aden to the Indian Ocean. Smith, an American doctor and big game hunter took the trip to explore, to gather specimens, and to shoot animals. He was accompanied by a taxidermist, Edward Dodson, and a friend. They were attended by native men and animals. The book recounts their experiences in detail, and is filled with b&w illustrations and photographs from the journey. They include full page depictions of shootings and encounters with various tribes; and partial page pictures of animals, birds, and native artifacts There are six partially colored maps, five of which fold out. The maps are in pristine condition despite the fragility of their paper. Following the text are several appendices on the collections brought back. Laid in are two interesting letters from him about his journey. Both are to "Tony" who may have been a fellow physician as Smith thanks him for medications received from him for the trip. The first letter was written March 22, 1900 from Africa while on his way back to England. He tells Tony that the medicines were a godsend and that all of the personnel in his caravan arrived out of the Nile without any sickness. He continues "It will take me over three months to reach the coast but my travelling in the future will be in safe country with everything known ahead - very different from exploring. So I can breath a sigh of relief that my journey has been a successful 'tho hard one."He says that his collections were all safe, and included 18 elephants and lots of other sport. He talks about the arrangements made for getting his collections out of Africa and the routes he is taking. The second 4 page letter is written in London and dated June 23, '00. It begins "Just back in London with a pleasant feeling that - I have done all I wanted in Africa, & no devils...around to pester the life out of me. I did have a rough time of it - but of the hardest parts [sic] of the show was getting in! I had finally to pick up what riffraff I could & make a bolt.." After again expressing relief that he made it back he discusses his problems with the Royal Geological Society. He had a row with them over the way they had treated his maps. He also took offense at remarks by the President at his annual address where he said "his great desire was to see the country [Africa] explored by Englishmen"! Smith says that he feels like taking all his results to America. "If I do so I know the President of the R.G.S. will injure me all he can.." But he says if he gives his results to the R.G.S. he stands an excellent chance of the Gold Medal. He closes by sending his best to various friends. A New York Times article about the R.G.S. award ceremony stated that Smith received the Patron's medal, not the Gold. Responding to a toast in his honor, Smith said he was glad if he had done anything to help friendly relations between the United States and England. Bound in orginal black cloth with gilt ruling and elephant illustration to front board along with author and title. Gilt title and author on spine. In very good condition with bumped corners; bottom edges are chipped and have some discoloring. Some tenderness to hinges but otherwise tight. Interior is in near fine condition with bright text and illustrations. 472 pages plus 4 pages of ads. TRAV/011011.
