[1897]. Original caricature done in ink on paper. The caricature celebrates the opening night of The Happy Life, a play by Louis N.

Frederic M. Halford
Very Good. Dry Fly Entomology: A brief description of leading types of natural insects with the 100 best patterns of floating flies and the various methods of dressing them- Frederic M. Halford. Published by Vinton & Co,. London. Two volumes. Edition de Luxe 1897. No. 81 of 100 limited copies., signed by the author on the title page of each volume. Both volume rebacked in 2010 to duplicate the original crushed green Morocco goatskin binding and original marbled endpapers. Volume One: 314 uncut pages, gilt top edge. 10 exquisite hand colored engraved plates of 100 dry flies with tissue guards, 18 b&w wood engravings of natural insects also with tissue guards, and numerous b&w illustrations throughout the text. There are no foxing on the text pages, minute foxing on few of the other pages, and with some aging on the edges. Volume two: 12 boards, all edges gilt. Beveled recessed boards containing 100 original tied dry flies, as described in volume one, mounted with fine wire. Fly #46 is missing as shown. The boards are not made of the same quality paper stock used in volume one resulting in foxing throughout as shown. With only 100 copies produced, these volumes are among the rarest of all fly fishing literature. The writing has been recognized as Halford's finest and elevated him to the pinnacle of angling history. The printing and engravings are absolutely superb. The flies were dressed with perfection and survived the ravages of time well. However, the original covers literately disintegrated and necessitated replacement. The price has been reduced to reflect the missing fl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Absolute Rarität! Ich biete hier ein Zeitungskonvolut zum Nationalitäten-Konflikt Deutschböhmen - Teschechen aus dem Jahre 1897 an. Der Inhalt zeigt das Konflikt- und Gewaltpotential aus Deutscher und Tschechischer Perspektive, wobei mehr deutsche Artikel aus eindeutig deutschnationalen Verlagen dabei sind. Die Mappe ist eine absolute Rarität, ich habe in den letzten 25 Jahren kein vergleichbares Exemplar gefunden, nicht in Deutschland, Tschechien oder Österreich. Die Mappe muss aus einer ursprünglich größeren Sammlung stammen da auf dem Einband innen eine "48" eingeklebt wurde. Die Zeitungsausschnitte sind gebunden die Mappe ist 29cm x 39cm groß, der Einband ist bestoßen aber ansonsten sehr gut erhalten. Es sind Ausschnitte aus "Der Deutsche Volksbote", "Bohemia", "Das interessante Blatt","Politik","Kuryr" (tschechisch), "Reichenberger Zeitung","Deutsche Volkszeitung" enthalten, teilweise sind die Zeitungen umgefaltet und leicht stockfleckig oder ins braune verfärbt. Zeitungen sind an den Rändern bestoßen oder minimal eingerissen (ist an den eingestellten Bildern ersichtlich).

The collection was acclaimed and popular during the poet's lifetime and it remains so. The most famous poems from this collection are numbers 33 and 43. The 'Sonnets from the Portuguese' manuscript was made for Phoebe Anna Traquair's brother, William Richardson Moss (1845-1915). Moss was a Lancashire cotton manufacturer who commissioned a number of other significant art works from her, including an illuminated copy (1898-1902) of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's 'The House of Life', a painted ceiling decoration (1893-1894) for his house, Burnthwaite, near Bolton, and two fine enamelled caskets (1906-1907). DescriptionScarce and an attractive copy of 'Sonnets from the Portuguese' by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Traquair has illustrated and decorated each sonnets with artwork calligraphy on fine thick paper. This copy is printed facsimile of illuminated manuscript original (which is held in the National Library of Scotland) - as far as I know there were 50-75 copies done, and most of them were issued in paper wrappers. This one is specially bound copy, and could be one of the copies bound by Traquair herself!!!?.. Th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Galsworthy, John]
1897. [first book, "From the Author"] By John Sinjohn. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1897. Original olive green cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition of John Galsworthy's first book, a collection of ten tales. Only 500 copies were printed -- on a commission basis, with Galsworthy paying for the printing; in order not to bring shame upon his name, he used a pseudonym derived from the name of a college friend, St. John Hornby. Galsworthy was subsequently ashamed of this initial work: he asked friends to whom he had sent copies to burn them, he never permitted it to be reprinted, and he ultimately asked the publisher to destroy the unsold stock (in 1920! -- giving an indication of how poorly the 500 copies had been selling). This is a nearly fine copy, with very little sign of age or wear. Marrot p. 3. Housed in a morocco-backed clamshell case. The front flyleaf of this copy is inscribed by Galsworthy "From the Author," in his distinctive hand; since the book was pseudonymous and he was not at all proud of it -- and due to the natural humility common to many writers with their first efforts -- this was his way of inscribing his earliest books.

THE WAR OF THE WORLDS Wells, H. G. Published by Cosmopolitan Press NY (1897) Extremely scarce - pre-dates the first published edition by one year Half leather bound hardcover collated volume. in very Good. The first appearance of Wells's famous science fiction novel, The War of the Worlds, was in serial format 1897-1898 published by Cosmopolitan magazine in the United States and pearson's in England. Was serialised in nine parts. Each installment was accompanied by several black and white illustrations by Warwick Goble, an English illustrator who became well known for his illustrations for children's books. However, Wells did not like the illustrations he did for these serial installments, i concur. Part 1 was published in the April 1897 issue, parts 2 through 7 in the May through November 1987 issues and parts 8 & 9 in the December 1897/January 1898 issues. Also included within this volume are stories reported in the Cosmopolitan about current events happening at the time (1897/1898). Very Rare!! The first hardcover book was published in 1898 by William Heinemann in the United Kingdom. REASONABLY PRICED Over all a very good clean tightly bound copy of a classic. Very collectible.

Name withheld
[Hannover, Germany]: 1897. Condition: Good +. Octavo, 193pp. Generally in good or better condition, with heavy wear to the spine (the backstrip is missing) and some age-toning to the leaves, but generally clean and quite legible internally. Though a later label on the front board states that this is the "diary of a German girl translated into English, a closer reading leads us to believe that this is the diary of a young English woman, living in Hannover, Germany at the end of the 19th century. Details mentioned in the book include that she was born in Demerara, then part of British Guiana [sic], and was learning to play the piano, quite seriously, it seems. There are several instances in the text where the author drew a few bars of music with complicated details, and very cleanly and legibly (these are mostly references to Chopin and other composers, though there is one fragment of one of her own compositions). The most striking and amusing anecdote concerns the young Raoul Koczalski [she spells it Koczaski], when the child piano prodigy was 13 years old. She writes, " We went to Hotel Royal and inquired if we could see Raoul Koczaski. We were shown into their drawing room. There sat Frau Koczalski [Raoul's mother] and her little daughter. She greeted us with "Meiner Sohn ist [illegible] ein Neglige. It was shocking as it was past 1 1/2. The mother was very pleased and ran into the next room. Then she showed us the new photo [...] then she ran into the bedroom to Raoul with the new photo.

Calhoun, Judge Samuel Lumpkin, and several other prominent Atlanta residents. Elizabeth Lyon's catalog "Atlanta Architecture.
