        [Epistolarum familiarum] 55 leaf fragment

      np, nd. Fragment containing leaves g5-o4. 1 vols. Bound in nineteen-century blind-tooled reversed calf, light waterstaining and soiling throughout. Large (4-3/4 x 6-1/4 inches) symbolic 1897 bookplate of Afrikaans poet and pioneering ethologist Eugène Marais. Fragment containing leaves g5-o4. 1 vols. With the symbolic bookplate of Afrikaans poet and pioneering ethologist Eugène Marais. The bookplate measures 4-3/4 x 6-1/4 inches, and was designed by James J. Guthrie (his monogram at lower left); printed: London, 1897. The motto, Dit of Dood, translates as "This or Death" ; in The Dark Stream. The Story of Eugne Marais (Jonathan Ball, 1982), reflecting upon the time Marais spent in London in the 1890s, biographer Leon Rousseau devotes a substantial passage to discussing the symbolism and implications of this bookplate. Of Marais' life and poetry, Janwillem van de Wetering wrote, "Afrikaans poets all seemed to be on opium, dagga (marihuana) and alcohol (in die kar nog 'n sopie op die kerkhof nog 'n hopie). They didn't live long and had a way with words. Many Dutch writers say Afrikaans is the ideal language to write poetry in.".

        Grasset, Eugene - Extravagance.

      Lithografie uit 1897 ontworpen door Eug?ne Samuel Grasset, uitgegeven door G. de Malherbe. Afm. (afbeelding): 130 x 30 cm. Grasset (1845 - 1917) was een Zwitsers grafisch vormgever die in Parijs werkte tijdens de Belle Epoque. Voordat hij faam maakte met lithografie?n, experimenteerde Grasset met keramiek en ontwierp hij meubels en behang. Vanaf 1877 weidde hij zich geheel aan de grafische vormgeving en illustreerde boeken, ontwierp kalenders en covers voor tijdschriften, en legde daarmee de basis voor het vervaardigen van prachtige gelithografeerde affiches. Grasset wordt gezien als een pionier van de Art Nouveau.Het blad komen uit de serie Dix Estampes Decoratives (caracteres de femmes, fleurs emblematiques) uitgegeven in een oplage van 750 stuks. In ?Extravagence?? wandelt een schone dame door een veld dieprode celosia?s en gunt zichzelf een beetje extravagantie: een lorgnet en een waaier, beide niet echt essentieel bij het wandelen door de natuur. Prijs: ?2.450,- (incl 21% BTW, excl. lijst).

        ILSÉE, PRINCESSE DE TRIPOLI

      H. Piazza et Cie, Paris 1897 - 330 x 250 mm. (13 x 9 3/4"). 6 p.l. (first blank), 52, [4], 53-94, [4], 95-128 pp., [4] leaves. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 252 COPIES (this copy out of series). FINE TAN GOATSKIN, INLAID, ONLAID, AND TOOLED IN BLIND BY SUSAN ALLIX, covers with border of onlaid citron morocco, upper cover with two inlaid white morocco calla lilies, and with an inlaid and onlaid abstract design in shades of crimson, light blue, taupe, and tan, accented with many blind-stamped stars; lower cover with small abstract blind and onlaid design similar to that on the upper board, flat spine with title "Ilsée" onlaid as widely-spaced individual letters, purple handmade paper pastedowns, bronze patterned endpapers. Original green printed paper wrappers made into a binding that encloses blank leaves (as bulk to preserve the paper spine). Both morocco and paper volumes housed in a fine custom linen box with leather labels on back and upper cover and felt lining. Embossed half title by Alex Charpentier, and 132 color Art Nouveau lithographs by Alphonse Mucha. A couple of small marginal smudges, minor offsetting to final (blank) page from original wrappers, but A SPLENDID COPY OF A BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED BOOK, now housed in an attractive, unworn binding. This very attractive binding by versatile American artisan Susan Allix enhances a work that is of considerable interest, no matter its covers. Czech artist Mucha (1860-1939) was a painter and illustrator as well as a designer of advertising materials, carpets, wallpaper, jewelry, and theater sets. If he did not exactly create the Art Nouveau movement, it is not too much to say that his work was central to its development; his production was prolific, and his reputation much enhanced by international exposure at the 1900 Universal Exhibition in Paris. With considerably more than 100 lithographs, the present large-format production is one of his major publications. His illustrations, as here, often feature young women in voluminous garments placed in beautifully smooth and flowing visual contexts that often evoke irresistible feelings of relaxation. "Ilsée" is based on Edmond Rostand's "La Princesse Lointaine," which itself derives from the story of a 12th century troubadour, both emphasizing the unattainability of women. After "Ilsée" was commissioned by the publisher Henri Piazza, the author Flers took so long to complete it that Mucha had just 90 days to prepare his 134 colored lithographs before the printing deadline. The role of the Princesse was written for Sarah Bernhardt, who had a happy history with Mucha. In 1894, our illustrator saw a notice of the need for an advertising poster for a play featuring Bernhardt, the most celebrated actress in Paris. Mucha volunteered to produce the poster, which so pleased Bernhardt that she agreed to a six-year contract with the artist for more such work. The cover design here has elements that suggest various types of growth and perhaps even the great cycle of life; whatever feelings it elicits (and whether it relates at all to the content of the book), it is certainly pleasing in terms of the forms and colors that are used in its composition.

        The Invisible Man

      London: C. Arthur Pearson, 1897. First edition, first issue, with the title page printed in orange and black and pages 247 and 248 being publisher's ads. Octavo, original cloth. In near fine condition with a touch of rubbing. A very nice example. Originally serialized in Pearson's Weekly in 1897, The Invisible Man was published as a novel the same year. The Invisible Man of the title is Griffin, a scientist who has devoted himself to research into optics and invents a way to change a body's refractive index to that of air so that it neither absorbs nor reflects light and thus becomes invisible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but fails in his attempt to reverse it. Readers found The Invisible Man--unlike its immediate predecessor, The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896)--accessible and gripping. Joseph Conrad, in a December 1898 letter to Wells, praised the book: "Frankly--it is uncommonly fine. One can always see a lot in your work--there is always a 'beyond' to your books--but into this... you've managed to put an amazing quantity of effects." The Invisible Man remains not only an inescapable influence on modern science fiction but also a "classic study of scientific hubris brought to destruction" (Clute & Nicholls, 1313).

        FOLLOWING THE EQUATOR

      1897. A Journey around the World. Hartford: The American Publishing Company, 1897. Original blue cloth with front cover plate and gilt-decorated spine. First Edition, with the title page in what is generally considered the first state (with no mention of McClure). This was Twain's travel narrative (beginning in Vancouver and ending in Cape Town, by way of Australia and India), illustrated by eleven artists of the day, with which he had "hoped to make good the tangled finances of the ill-fated publishing firm, Charles L. Webster & Company, of which Mark himself was the company" [Johnson]. It was Twain's last travel book, and it was also the last of his books to be sold on a subscription basis.~As with most copies, the signature mark "11" is present on page 161 -- but this is not an issue point, as priority is unknown. This is an attractive, near-fine copy (the slightest of rubbing at the extremities). Blanck 3451; Johnson pp 65-68.

        The Jubilee Book of Cricket.

      Edinburgh & London William Blackwood and Sons 1897 - De-luxe limited edition, number 51 or 350 copies, on hand-made paper, signed by Ranjitsinhji, additionally signed on front free endpaper by Henry Blofeld, sporting journalist and cricket commentator, lge. 8vo., photogravure portrait frontispiece, title printed in red and black, half tone plates including 20 photogravures, 15 pages of field plans, some very faint staining mainly at margins, modern full morocco 'Cosway' style binding by Bayntun-Riviere, inset with a fine oval, original water-colour portrait of Ranjitsinhji to the upper cover, covers with double gilt-ruled fillets and three cricket balls stamped in each corner, cricket motifs of crossed bats and wickets to spine panels, near fine, a stunning binding. An in-depth celebration of the Cricket with chapters ranging from 'Training and Outfit'; 'Fielding'; 'Bowling'; 'Batting', to 'Public School Cricket'; 'County Cricket'; as well as the game at Oxford and Cambridge;l 'Umpiring'; 'Captaincy'; and 'Cricket and the Victorian Era'. In this book, Ranjitsinhji produced what is generally considered to be one of cricket's classic works. Kumar Shri Ranjitsinhji (1872-1933) an Indian prince, was probably one of the finest batsmen of all time, not only in terms of runs scored but also because he brought new strokes to the game. His keen eye, unorthodoxy and speed of reaction meant that he introduced the late cut and leg glance, as well as the art of back-foot defence. He arrived at Cambridge in 1891 (where he acquired the nickname "Smith") never having played an organised game and won a Blue in his final summer. He marked his debut for Sussex at Lord's in May 1895 with 77 and 150 against MCC. On his Test debut against Australia, at Old Trafford in 1896, he scored 62 and 154 not out. His nephew, KS Duleepsinhji, also played for England. Padwick 467. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Meissonier: His Life and His Art

      1897. First Edition . (MEISSONIER, Jean-Louis-Ernest) GRÉARD, Vallery C.O. Meissonier: His Life and His Art. London: William Heinemann, 1897. Large, thick quarto, contemporary full vellum, spine and front cover painted in an Art Nouveau style with green, red, purple and pink, with mother-of-pearl onlays,overlaid with transparent vellum in the vellucent style and finished with gilt, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, uncut. $1650.First English edition of this life of the renowned painter and illustrator of Napoleonic and military scenes, beautifully bound by Cedric Chivers of Bath in his characteristic ‘vellucentÂ’ style.Meissonier was a French classicist painter who made a name for himself with his renderings of scenes from the Napoleonic wars and military themes. This richly illustrated biography includes 38 full-page plates of his work—18 in color—and over 200 in-text illustrations. More than half the book is devoted to a very generous selection of passages from the artistÂ’s journals. Includes a catalogue of the artistÂ’s works. Innovative bookbinder Cedric Chivers developed a trademark style of binding known as ‘vellucent,Â’ in which delicate watercolor paintings on paper would be laid down on the bookÂ’s covers and spine, and then covered with vellum specially treated to be transparent. (The word vellucent is a mixture of vellum with translucent.) The vellum would protect the image and any stones that might also be incorporated into the design—such as mother-of-pearl in the present design—and then be tooled with gilt to further enhance the appearance. In devising these vellucent bindings Chivers paid homage to the renowned bookbinder Edwards of Halifax of the 18th century, who achieved similar effects by painting the undersides of transparent vellum. Vellum only slightly darkened. Interior fine. A beautiful volume in fine condition.

H x B: 34,4 x 20,3 cm.Het gekibbel tussen geliefden was een populair 19de-eeuws onderwerp dat zich kon afspelen in iedere gewenste historische periode of setting, in de Klassieke Oudheid, middeleeuwen, 18de-eeuw of in de moderne tijd.De mannelijke figuren in werken van Alma-Tadema hebben veelal een tamelijk emotieloze lichaamsuitdrukking, In A Difference of Opinion wijkt de man, die zijn geliefde van iets tracht te overtuigen, daar van af.Alma-Tadema verwerkte veelvuldig archeologische vondsten in zijn voorstellingen. In 1860 was men begonnen met het opgraven van Pompeji en leverde sindsdien een schat aan kunstvoorwerpen en informatie. De bronzen cherubijn met een gans die in deze voorstelling het waterbekken siert, staat thans in het Museo Nazionale te Napels.Prijs: 1.650,- (incl. lijst).

        Der Geist von Canterville ( Erstes Buch auf Deutsch von Wilde in EA von 1897 , nur 60 Exemplare weltweit , einst )

      Limited to 60 copies (1897), maybe still 20 existing copies worldwide today. Maybe the last possibility to buy one for ever on private market. Colophon : Dieses Buch wurde in 60 Exemplaren, von denen eines auf Seide, eines auf Pergament abgezogen wurde, für Freunde gedruckt. Die Illustrationen verdankt es der Güte von Herrn Fritz Erler, der Druck wurde ausgeführt von Brügel & Sohn in Ansbach, die Kosten trug der Bruder der Uebersetzerin. Oscar Wilde, Der Geist von Canterville, trans. A.M. von B(öhm) (Munich : Brügel, 1897). This edition, with illustrations by Fritz Erler, was limited to only sixty copies and it is the first Wilde work that appeared in book form in German. The stigma still associated with Wilde's name in 1897 may account for the facts that Böhm used only his /her/ initialsto identify him/her/self and that the publisher's imprint did not appear on the volume. This was in all likelihood an unauthorized edition, as neither Wilde nor Ross makes mention of it in their correspondence, despite Wilde's continual efforts to make as much money as possible off his works during these years. (Joseph Bristow in Oscar Wilde and Modern Culture : The making of a legend). Condition : near mint. Format : ca 10,5 x 12,5 cm. Ex-Libris (original ink-drawing) for EMIL FERDINAND TUCHMANN (1885-1963) More pictures and background-research upon request. Payment by installments could be considered, also for public institutions.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1897 - 1897 Original Hardback Wisden, Very Good Condition.

      1897. Hi, This lot is an 1897 Original Hardback Wisden. In Very Good condition. This is the second hardback issued by Wisden and in my experience the rarest, especially when in very nice condition. The front board has excellent gilt, a couple of small marks and a tiny bit of rubbing but overall very good to the front, the spine cloth and gilt is excellent and original , a tiny bit of darkness to the spine cloth if being picky. The rear board has a mark to it but not off putting. The front hing is strong and the yellow pastedowns excellent. Internally nice and clean with great photoplate. There is some weakness to the rear hinge but the book is tightly bound. Some darkness to the page block but out of all the 1897s I have seen this is in the top 3. A rare Wisden in superb condition (++) and a very nice price, we would have bid a lot more on this book and hence passing on the savings.

Wharton notes in her conclusion: ""Modern civilization has been called a varnished barbarism: a definition that might well be applied to the superficial graces of much modern decoration. Only a return to architectural principles can raise the decoration of houses to the level of the past."" With 56 half-tone plates; without extremely rare dust jacket.

Il a participé à la recherche neurobiologique et neurologique auprès de grands spécialistes allemands. Devenu médecin à Bamberg, il émigre ensuite en 1898 en Argentine. Il créera, à Buenos Aires, un laboratoire de neuropathologie. Il a publié de nombreux livres sur le cortex cérébral humain, le développement du cerveau, la neuropathologie générale, la paléopathologie. Il a fondé une école scientifique de neurobiologie et correspondu avec les meilleurs spécialistes de sa discipline. Il a collaboré avec des ethnologues, des zoologistes.

      Lithografie uit 1897 ontworpen door Eugène Samuel Grasset, uitgegeven door G. de Malherbe. Afm. (afbeelding): 130 x 30 cm. Grasset (1845 - 1917) was een Zwitsers grafisch vormgever die in Parijs werkte tijdens de Belle Epoque. Voordat hij faam maakte met lithografieën, experimenteerde Grasset met keramiek en ontwierp hij meubels en behang. Vanaf 1877 weidde hij zich geheel aan de grafische vormgeving en illustreerde boeken, ontwierp kalenders en covers voor tijdschriften, en legde daarmee de basis voor het vervaardigen van prachtige gelithografeerde affiches. Grasset wordt gezien als een pionier van de Art Nouveau.Het blad komen uit de serie Dix Estampes Decoratives (caracteres de femmes, fleurs emblematiques) uitgegeven in een oplage van 750 stuks. In ?Extravagence?' wandelt een schone dame door een veld dieprode celosia?s en gunt zichzelf een beetje extravagantie: een lorgnet en een waaier, beide niet echt essentieel bij het wandelen door de natuur.
