        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.

Quarto, original marbled paper boards, original paper spine label, top edge stained olive, uncut. $4200.First edition of WhartonÂ’s influential first published book, illustrated with 56 plates, scarce in original marbled boards.Considered the first American handbook of interior decoration, Wharton's beautifully illustrated Decoration of Houses, her first published book (her Verses appeared privately in 1878), contains chapters on every aspect of interior design (including rooms in general, walls, doors, windows, fireplaces, ceilings and floors, gala rooms, bedrooms, the dining-room and library), as well as a survey of historical traditions and a detailed bibliography. The indirect result of Wharton's collaboration with Ogden Codman on the decoration of ""Land's End,"" her estate in Newport, Decoration of Houses advocates continental rather than English models, and ""remains even today a bible for classical and elegant taste in interior decoration"" (Metcalf, Ogden Codman). 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.

      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.

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.

        Collection of 23 portrait drawings and caricatures, all drawn "from life" and signed, dated, and titled by Geyling (often citing the place of the sitting). Includes two T.L.S. by Arthur Schnitzler. Vienna, 1897-1935.

      1897. Royal folio. In later years mounted onto uniform backing boards by Geyling himself and laid into two simple portfolios, both of which contain his autogr. table of portraits. All leaves numbered throughout by the artist (1-24; Schnitzler's letters on their own backing are no. 23) and captioned with the name and dates of the person portrayed. The earliest portrait dates from 1897, the year in which the Vienna Secession and the artistic periodical "Ver Sacrum" were founded. According to his inscription, it was for the latter that Geyling drew the present portrait of the Secessionist sculptor Rudolf Bacher. A large proportion of the pictures collected in these two portfolios were created several years later, in 1905, during the heyday of the Wiener Werkstätte (for which Geyling designed postcards) and a year after Geyling and his partner Otto Prutscher closed their joint studio for furnishings and décor. "Although a member of the conservative 'Künstlerhaus', Geyling always was close to the Vienna Secession" (cf. AKL LII, 462). For Geyling, "Klimt, Hoffmann, Roller, Olbrich were not only my colleagues, but also my friends, and many a night did we debate about the 'new and pure art'" (cf. Remigius Geyling erzählt, aufgezeichnet von Gerald Szyszkowitz. In: Nebehay/Krug, pp. 5-8, here: p. 7). These nights apparently offered numerous opportunities for Geyling's portrait studies: apart from the portraits of the aforesaid, the present collection contains a picture of the frequent Tivoli patron Egon Schiele (from the year of his death) as well as a portrait of Adolf Loos, drawn in the famous Café Museum. It was probably here where also Karl Kraus (entitled "Fackl-Kraus" by the artist) sat for Geyling. The great painter enjoyed an especially close relationship to Gustav Klimt: for many years he belonged to the circle of those who shared breakfast with Klimt at the Tivoli (cf. Nebehay/Krug, p. 3). In that legendary restaurant at the Green Hill in Vienna's Meidling district, he drew the two portraits of Klimt in May 1905. Together with Peter Altenberg and Otto Wagner, Klimt is one of the few persons whom Geyling sketched in more than one portrait only (all on a single page). It was upon Klimt's recommendation that Geyling was hired as head of decorations at the "Neue Wiener Bühnen" in 1910; his first production was the premiere of Schnitzler's "Undiscovered Country". It was during the rehearsals for this production, on 14 October 1911, that Geyling produced the present portrait of Schnitzler. Schnitzler's two letters to Geyling concern their joint project of a "Medardus movie". Geyling had worked as decorator for the most important Austrian film productions. So successfully had he transferred the stylistic devices of the Wiener Werkstätte into historical tragedy that in 1924 Fritz Lang used Geyling's designs for his great silent "Nibelungen" series (cf. AKL LII, 462). - Provenance: From a Viennese private collection, into which the artist himself sold both portfolios. Nos. 6-8 and 18, 21 and 22 are each illustrated in full-page size in: Ch. M. Nebehay & H. Krug (eds.). Remigius Geyling. Künstler und Literaten. Gezeichnet in Wien um 1900. Wien 1974. (= Jahresgabe der Wiener Bibliophilengesellschaft). This work does not describe the present collection; all other drawings are unpublished.

        Sapho.; Pièce lyrique de M.M. Henri Cain & Bernède d'après le roman de Alphonse Daudet. Musique de J. Massenet. Théâtre de l'Opéra-Comique. Représentations de Melle. Emma Calvé

      Paris: F. Hermet, [ca. 1897]. Original large lithographic poster in colours by Pal, signed in the stone and with the mark of the Pal studio to lower left. 129 x 98 cms. (51.5" x 39"). Laid down to board; slightly worn at edges. In very good condition overall. "In Sapho Massenet made his first attempt at an opera in a modern setting. Dramatically too, with its basis in Daudet's novel, it recalls La traviata... Massenet handles the vicissitudes of love with enormous skill and imagination, and the solo scene for Fanny in the last act may be compared with Charlotte's great monologue in Werther... Sapho is certainly one of Massenet's finest works..." Hugh Macdonald et al in Grove online The poster depicts the singer Emma Calvé in the lead role of Fanny Legrand in the premiere of the opera in Paris at the Opéra Comique on November 27, 1897. Reproduced in Schneider: Massenet, p. 209. Not in Broido.

      Westminster: Archibald Constable and Company,, 1897. Octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to covers and spine red within a one-line red rule border, lower and fore edges untrimmed. Housed in a custom black quarter morocco solander box. Bookplate and stationer's blind stamp to front free endpaper. Spine gently rolled and toned, light soiling to boards, rear inner hinge starting to crack but holding, internally fresh, an excellent copy of a notoriously fragile book, with no repair or restoration. First edition, first impression. With the relevant issue points: printed on thicker paper stock, without the advert for The Shoulder of Shasta which appears in later impressions on the verso of the final integral leaf [392], and without the eight pages of adverts inserted in later issues. This is the combination of states found in early authorial presentation copies and review copies sent out by Constable.

        The Decoration of Houses.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1897. First edition of Edith Wharton's first published book. Octavo, original marbled paper boards. Illustrated with 56 plates. In very good condition with some wear to the spine extremities. A nice example of an important work on interior design. Written in collaboration with celebrated American architect Ogden Codman, Jr., Wharton's first book is a comprehensive look at the history and character of turn-of-the-century interior design, moving from historical traditions to the distinctive styles of contemporary taste. It is considered a seminal work and its success led to the emergence of professional decorators working in the manner advocated by its authors. Garrison A2.1.a.

      Westminster: Archibald Constable and Company 1897. FIRST EDITION, fourth printing. Octavo. [i-vii], viii-ix, [1], 2-390, [1], blank; [1], advertisement for 'The Shoulder of Shasta; 16, catalogue. Original yellow cloth blocked in red, edges untrimmed. This copy comprises first edition sheets bound up slightly later with the 'The Shoulder of Shasta' advert and a 16-page catalogue inserted (dated 1898). The present copy's publisher list features an advert for Dracula to p.10 (importantly without its edition noted) and is entirely unopened/uncut. Other and later lists are noted, some promoting Dracula in '5th Edition'. The printing history of Dracula is complex; first printings (May 1897) are on thick paper and have no adverts at all; the second printing includes the 'Shasta' leaf; thinner text block copies follow, such as this, and contain an undated 16-page publisher's catalogue, of which later dated versions may include an advert for Dracula. There are no textual differences concerning the early printings. Our copy appears to be the fourth printing and is apparently an elusive one among dedicated Stoker collectors.Neat (and helpful) contemporary ink name dated 'April 1898'. Very clean internally, signs of respectful handling on the outside with a uniformly age-toned backstrip; A bright and pleasing copy in the original unsophisticated binding.A scarce Spring 1898 issue of one of the most important weird tales in the history of the weird, and one that enabled an entire generation of British male youth to witness Madeleine Smith without any clothes on, which is the kind of thing you remember all your life and which enables you to finally slip away into the great outer dark with less bitterness than might be supposed.

        Spenser's Faerie Queene. A Poem in Six Books. With the Fragment Mutabilitie, edited by Thomas J. Wise. Pictured by Walter Crane.

A beautifully illustrated production, encompassing both an Art Nouveau and an Arts & Crafts aesthetic.
