WELLS, H. G.
London: Pearson, 1897. Octavo. Original red cloth, front cover stamped in gilt and black. Slight lean, spine faded and stained with wear to ends, hinges starting, endpapers and contents browned. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by Wells to his literary mentor on the half-title, "W. E. Henley from H. G. Wells (with apologies)". William Ernest Henley (1849-1903), poet, critic, journalist and influential editor of The National Observer and other papers "had a gift for finding and encouraging new talent" (ODNB). He published works by Kipling, Hardy, Yeats, and Barrie among others, and early in his career he collaborated with his friend Robert Louis Stevenson on four plays. Henley encouraged Wells to develop a series of time travelling stories into what would later become The Time Machine. Henley serialised the work and secured a generous publication agreement with Heinemann. "In making friends with Henley he had made the contact that was to launch his career" (MacKenzie, H.G. Wells, p. 105). With the relevant issue points: page 1 incorrectly numbered 2, and two pages of advertisements at rear. Provenance: W. E. Henley (presentation inscription from Wells); Sotheran's (bookseller's ticket); Eugene Plunkett (bookplate and pencilled inventory number on front pastedown). Currey, p. 520; Wells 11; Hammond B4.

Schwarz, Osias L.
1897. Original archive. The 26 thick, octavo notebooks are written in a neat European hand, dated consecutively from 1897 through 1914. The first 11 volumes are written in the Czech language. From the middle of Vol. XII on, Schwarz, who is by then living in New York, writes in English. Each notebook has a title-page stating the inclusive dates of the contents and where they were written, with the earlier volumes penned in Focsani (Romania), Paris, Zurich, Berlin, Lausanne, Charlottenburg, and Sniatyn (now Ukraine, then part of the Austro-Hungarian empire). Starting with Vol. VII (April 1902-Oct. 1903), he does his writing in the U.S. His first "American" volume was partially written in NY and St. Louis, the next in St. Louis and "Pittsburg", and from Vol. IX on, he writes solely in NY and Pittsburgh. ~~ Schwarz's first "American" volume was partially written in New York and St. Louis; the next in St. Louis and "Pittsburg"; and from Vol. IX on, he writes solely in NY and Pittsburgh. ~~ With one exception, the volumes contain his "Cugetari" (translated in later volumes as "Reflections"), and these "reflections" are consecutively numbered. They vary in length from a few lines to several pages. The "cugetari" in these notebooks start at #177, and by the end of volume XXVI, Schwarz has reached #2,326. The pages in the volumes are also consecutively numbered, from pp.1- 3,524. The "Cugetari" are scholarly thoughts on a variety of topics in philosophy and ethics, e.g. Reflection #1037: "We always try to explain the unusual in terms of the usual and this is--I think--the common sou … [Click Below for Full Description]

NAST, Thomas (1840-1902)
1897. The "Father of the American Cartoon" was a German-born American cartoonist who proved the influence of editorial cartoons with his memorable attacks on William M. "Boss" Tweed and the Tammany Hall political machine along with all manner of events during the post-Civil War decades, mainly for "Harper's Weekly" but also other popular periodicals; he's credited with creating the Republican elephant, but he merely popularized the Democratic donkey and Uncle Sam; on a lighter note, he's considered the creator of our modern image of Santa Claus. Original ink drawing, heavy stock 8½" X 10½", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1897]. Very good. Mild edgewear and mild age toning, with single small chip at upper right corner. Delightful example of Nast's campaign against the Democratic political machine known as Tammany Hall. Tammany Hall leader Richard Croker engineered the election of Robert A. Van Wyck (1849-1918), a Democratic politician whose strings Croker could control. Van Wyck's single term (1898-1901) was marked by little but the "Ice Trust" scandal of 1900 in which Van Wyck was implicated and which caused his political ruin, making him a one-term wonder. In this bold scene penned during Van Wyck's 1897 campaign, Croker is shown wheeling a large toy hobby horse (labeled "Robert A. Van Wyck") out of the gate of the "Tammany Hall Stable" onto a cobblestone lane; in the background one can read a political poster text ("FOR MAYOR / of the Greater New York / ROBERT A. VAN WYCK"). Along the bottom edge Nast pens the title "Afraid of His Mare." Signed boldly with his usual "Th: Nast" signature … [Click Below for Full Description]

DARWIN, Charles
Definitive 6th Edition which includes all the final revisions by Darwin. Original green cloth with covers decoratively stamped in blind and spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. Some spotting to front board, otherwise an excellent example of this rare book with cloth and gilt very fresh and bright. One of the most important scientific works of the last two centuries, On the Origin of Species was (and still is) also one of the most controversial. The book caused an uproar immediately upon its publication. Before publication of the Origin, Darwin wrote to his publisher John Murray:' It may be conceit, but I believe the subject will interest the public.' The first edition of 1250 copies sold out quickly. With copies of the First English Edition approaching 6 figures, this very nice copy of the 6th edition is an appealing alternative. Freeman 451

Scott, Samuel
Custer City, S.D. (pamphlet), and Philadelphia (map), 1897. [2],40pp. and folding chromolithographed map (sheet size 31 x 28 1/2 inches) after Scott, published by E.P. Noll & Co. of Philadelphia. Original brown cloth, the upper cover lettered in gilt: "Rocks, / Minerals, / and other / Resources / of the / Golden / Black Hills / of / South Dakota / and / Wyoming." Very good. Provenance: Annotated in pencil by a single hand. A prospector's copy of this interesting survey, the issue with the colored map: "the first book on descriptive mineralogy of the Black Hills. Today highly sought after as a Black Hills mining relic" (Loomis). This work was published with the fine map colored (as here) or uncolored. Scott's large map of the Black Hills region depicts topographic features and various towns, including Deadwood, Sturgis, and Custer City. "For legibility, and for tracing streams to their sources, this is still a useful map of the Hills" - Jennewein. The present example is annotated in pencil with notes suggesting that the original owner of this map was attempting to set up a prospecting/mining operation near Clifton, Wyoming, in the southwest corner of the Black Hills. Further notes on the verso of the map and the facing page suggest that the unidentified individual was looking for manganese. JENNEWEIN, BLACK HILLS BOOKTRAILS 229. Thomas A.

JAMES, William.
Longmans Green & Co., New York. Half title + TP + [v] = Dedication + [vii]-xiv = Preface + [xv]-xvii =Contents + [1]-332 + 1 blank leaf, Octavo. First Edition (McDermott 1897-3).Pasted down on the front free end paper is an invitation card and the original envelope both in William James' handwriting.A truly seminal work for any understanding of William James' thought, this popular collection of nine essays - written between 1879 and 1896 - was first published in an edition of 1,000 copies in March of 1897 and had to be reprinted twice that same year and many time thereafter. (See James, WTB, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, 1979, pp. 307-8)Many of James's most important and innovative contributions are developed in this early book - including his advocacy of pluralism and what he calls in the Preface "radical empiricism". The book clearly illustrates James's efforts to weave together insights from psychology, philosophy, and religion without great regard for narrow lines of professional specialization and shows, in the wake of the The Principles of Psychology, his growing concern with religious questions.In the opening controversial essay, "The Will to Believe", (which James admitted, might better have been called "The Right to Believe") is "a defense of our right to adopt a believing attitude in religious matters, in spite of the fact that our merely logical intellect may not have been coerced." Driven by his fierce rejection of W.K. Clifford's statement that "it is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone to believe anything upon insufficient evidence", James spends m … [Click Below for Full Description]

WILLIAMS, Gomer.
London, William Heinemann, 1897. 8vo. Original dark red cloth, spine lettered in gilt; pp. xv, 718, [2]; four folding facsimiles, minimal wear to binding; a near-fine copy, the best we ever handled. Scarce first edition, presentation copy with a signed autograph presentation letter of the first full-length book to tap into the history of the 'national sin' (p. v). - We could not find any information about the author, despite - or maybe because - of him having written this substantial book. 'History of the Liverpool Privateers... is one of the most detailed 19th century accounts of the slave trade. It gathers original source materials which feature comparative tables of figures and profits connected with the trade, newspaper articles and advertisements, and facsimiles of manuscript documents, including ship logs. Also included are descriptive accounts of the treacherous journeys at sea, the brutal treatment received by African peoples, and the Abolition campaign. Although the book was written retrospectively in 1897, after Britain ceased involvement in the slave trade, it is still regarded as a reputable source. [...] On page 680 a comparative table shows the numbers of ships that left Liverpool, London and Bristol for Africa, to board African people and transport them to America as slaves. This movement is part of the 'trade triangle' in the transatlantic slave trade. The table, covering years 1795-1804, reveals that the port of Liverpool dominated the slave trade in the late 18th century. In 1798, for example, ships from Liverpool potentially boarded 53,051 Africans ("Slav … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND.)
In transit: 1897. Square quarto, Lett's Rough Diary and Almanac for 1897. Original red pebble-grained cloth, date gilt to the tail of the spine and to the front board within a belt device (stamped No.44), advertising endpapers on thin, very pale yellowish pink paper stock. Spine sunned, old pale splash stains to covers, a little rubbed and spotted, but overall very good. Comprising some 200 pages in a neat and perfectly legible hand, amounting to approximately 30,000 words. An engaging and detailed daily diary kept by an Englishman travelling to Australia, New Zealand, and the islands of Polynesia, which includes chronicles of cricket, earthquakes, and shooting sports. The volume opens at sea on 1 January 1897, with our unnamed diarist taking part in a deck quoit competition. The phrase "read, smoked and slept" sums up the tenor of the voyage out, undertaken with his friends Beattie and Spall. He makes observations of the weather, wind speeds and location (giving latitude and longitude) and shows an interest in maritime matters. Disembarking at Adelaide he tours the major locales of New South Wales and Victoria, including Auckland, Melbourne, and Sydney. In June the cruise takes him to the South Sea Islands of Fiji, Samoa, and Tonga, visiting plantations and interacting with the native people; he gives a charming account of an attempt to purchase cigars for two Fijian women. Of particular interest is a list of items both gifted and bought during this leg of the journey, which include a whale's tooth, a Joa wood war club, bow and arrows, and a ceremonial club belonging to Ch … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boston: Houghton, Mifflin & Co., 1897. [x, 432], 51 hand-coloured lithographic plates. Hardback. 4to, half morocco, rebacked, preserving orig. spine (worn), raised bands (one partly missing), corners restored; endpapers foxed and with one small cancelled ink stamp, otherwise clean. Pages and plates neatly numbered in ink, occasioanal ink annotation to text. Internally very good. Plates clean and bright. First edition of the Third Series only (of 3) of this great, pioneering work, with 51 beautiful hand-coloured plates and accompanying un-numbered letterpress. (The complete 3-volume work has 152 plates).William H. Edwards (1822-1909), was an American entomologist. 'The Butterflies of North America' was the first book of its kind by an American; it was evaluated by contemporaries as 'probably the most important faunistic work on Butterflies that has ever appeared' (Entomologist's Monthly Magazine, 33 [Apr. 1897]: 93), and it is still held in high regard. Edwards was an early defender of Darwinian principles in taxonomy, whereas Scudder, his friend and rival, was a later convert to evolution. This volume of 'The Butterflies of North America' is beautifully illustrated with two plates drawn on stone by Mary Peart, and the rest save one by Edward A. Ketterer. The illustrations of the early stages are all after original drawings by Mary Peart.Edwards spared no expense on illustrating 'The Butterflies of North America', because he believed words alone 'hindered' insight into natural history: 'Nothing is more discouraging to the beginner than the dry, unillustrated descriptions.'

Two chromolithograph elaborately illustrated title pages (to gazetteer and atlas, signed Alfredo Ramos Martínez) 109 hand-colored plates, being place-name glyphs.The 3 volumes are "Etimologias de los nombres de lugar," parts I and II, and an atlas. The atlas is often found without the hand-coloring. An ink stamp on the page facing the first titlepage indicates that this copy belonged to the author. [NOTE: There are two books with similar titles; this later and much larger volume includes all the indigenous languages of Mexico, while the earlier work is restricted to Nahuatl names.] Glass, p. 673: “Atlas illustrates 1,295 place glyphs - almost all hand-colored - and variants from about 25 different Mexican Indian pictorial manuscripts. Text gives sources for all illustrations. A basic reference work.” Palau 217594. Ugarte 306. The author published a similar atlas in 1885 from Nahuatl sources with 462 place glyphs, but here the work is much enlarged. The lithographs of place names in prehispanic Mexico are well done and fascinating. He argues that these place names and their glyphs were important in preserving tradition in places where "history has completely disappeared.” Mexican physician, author, and historian Antonio Peñafiel (1839-1922) was a noteworthy and prolific historian of languages and was responsible for the construction of the Mexican Pavilion at the Pa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Larmor, Joseph
1897. FIRST EDITION, OFFPRINT ISSUE, OF LARMOR'S FAMOUS PAPER INTRODUCING THE FIRST FORMULATION OF WHAT IS NOW KNOWN AS THE LORENTZ-TRANSFORMATION (or transformations), INCLUDING THE FIRST UNDERSTANDING AND PREDICTION OF THE CRUCIAL TIME DILATION & LENGTH CONTRACTION PROPERTIES INHERENT IN MAXWELL'S EQUATIONS. The transformation is "a general approach to how the distance and time measurements of two observers moving at different velocities can be transformed into each other's frames of reference" (History of Physics: The Wenner Collection). The offprint is housed in a custom leather clamshell case. This offprint is the important first announcement of Larmor's formulation and prediction. Later in the same year he developed his thoughts further those appeared in the Philosophical Transactions. To a collector, the announcement (particularly in offprint form) is the most desirable. "One of the interesting historical aspects of the modern relativity theory is that, although often regarded as the highly original and even revolutionary contribution of a single individual, almost every idea and formula of the theory had been anticipated by others. For example, Lorentz covariance and the inertia of electromagnetic energy were both (arguably) implicit in Maxwell's equations" - in other words, Maxwell anticipated them (Brown, Reflections on Relativity, 8.8). This paper presents what the Irish mathematician Joseph Larmor 'anticipated' - specifically, the Lorentz transformation, the formulation of which Larmor presents here. Larmor's work is in accordance with special relativity, but wa … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOWLE FAMILY et al
WETUMPKA, ECLECTIC, MOBILE ALABAMA AL: (1897). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. On offer is a super, modest archive of manuscript letters, ledger/invoice sheets and poetry relating to the Howle family of Wetumpka Alabama. The small but fascinating group is an interesting peek at life in rural Alabama from the late part of the 19th Century to early in the 20th. All told there are five letters: three postmarked Eclectic Alabama, 1897 - 1898 to Mr. Howle, one from Mobile, 1910, to Mrs. Howle [from her sister] and the fifth letter, Oct. 1901, being a forlorn multipage letter from a bereft Mrs. Howle to her husband in El Paso. [She is incredibly lonely and wonders why her husband can enjoy El Paso but refuses to let her to join him as she will not have fun. There is a rather interesting undercurrent in her beseeching tone that Women's Studies students might find of interest running between the lines.] There is a 4 page handwritten invoice for many, many items written out on a Howle Brothers store printed billhead. It is dated 1918. There are two multi-page manuscript "love" poems or "courting" poems found with the Howle papers. One of them is signed we believe with the initials: St. B. Perhaps these were sent to a Howle daughter as one is addressed "Miss". Then there is a single page pencil genealogy table beginning with Colonel Thomas Marshall family [noted as Grandmother's Father] whose biography was, as noted in pencil, written by Senator Aldrich [this note is confused as the Senator was named Albert Beveridge].

NEW SOUTH WALES: GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
Sydney: New South Wales Government Printing Office, 1897. Large album, substantially thick and heavy folio, containing 99 silver-gelatin photographs mounted on thick board within printed borders, each photograph full page 279 x 355 mm (or the reverse); in a splendid binding of full burgundy morocco elaborately gilt, with ochre and green inlays, spine with raised bands and gilt compartments; moiré. A unique and magnificent (and at 18.5 kgs remarkably substantial) specially prepared photographic album in a superb and complex binding by the Government Bindery. The album showcases the virtues of New South Wales, and was presented by George Houston Reid as Premier of New South Wales to the Canadian Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of Queen Victoria in 1897. Reid and Laurier together with other Colonial Premiers were guests of the elderly Sir William Gladstone at his estate Hawarden.The album documents Sydney in wonderful style as a beautiful and thriving metropolis, the enlarged photographs capturing the harbour and waterways as centres of industry as well as featuring impressive architectural and municipal views, together with striking topographical views of the Nepean River and the Blue Mountains (Katoomba in particular) and further afield. In short, the album showcases New South Wales as a hub of the British Empire.This colonial angle suited the moment: Reid and Laurier both had significant roles to play at the Diamond Jubilee since the Colonial Secretary Chamberlain had conceived of the celebrations as a "Festival of the British Emp … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Klimt, Gustav] - Geyling, Remigius, painter and stage designer (1878-1974).
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 i … [Click Below for Full Description]

At this price they come in at around £75 per volume.It may be possible - and easiest - to deliver these volumes personally within England and Wales. Further afield postage will be extra but will be charged at cost. Looking merely at articles on Country Houses: as an example, Volume 8 (1900) includes articles on Eyam Hall, Frackleigh House, Rockingham Castle, Castle Bromwich, Hatfield House, Hunstanton Hall, Ascott, Corsham Court, Leonard's Lee, Heatherbank and Oakwood, Crooksbury, Stanage, Brickwall, Old Place Lyndfield, Hardwick Hall, Wollaton, Barlborough, Renishaw, Beckett House, Heslington Hall, Gunnersbury Park, Lypiatt, Stokesay Castle, Munstead Place, Hall Place, Mere Hall and Castle Kennedy.

Other country topics covered and editorials comment on issues of the day e.g. Boer War. Also quite a bit of stuff on Antarctica wildlife which was just being discovered.

Contemporary brown half leather with the original publisher's printed wrappers pasted on the boards. Occasional ink notes and pencil markings on the first few leaves. Wrappers soiled, title page with minor staining, paper slightly age toned, otherwise a very good copy. Rare early Baku imprint and important edition of the first Russian-Azerbaijani dictionary compiled by Soltan Majid Ganizade - a noted Azerbaijani linguist, writer, theatre director, teacher, and founder of several Russian-Muslim schools in Baku. An independent work on its own, the dictionary was published in a four-part series of Ganizade's ''Self Teacher of the Tatar Language'' (Tatar or Transcaucasian Tatar was a common name of the Azerbaijani Language in the Russian Empire before the revolution of 1917), which also included tutorials on Azerbaijani grammar, reading and speaking, and a phrasebook. First published in 1890-95, the ''Self Teacher'' became the first comprehensive tutorial of the Azerbaijani language ever printed. This second edition of the dictionary is significantly enlarged in comparison to the first edition of 1891 (124 pp.), and includes about 8000 words. The book became very popular and had six editions up to 1922. A graduate of the Alexandrovsky Teacher's Institute in Tiflis, Soltan Majid Ganizade (1866-1938) became the director of the elementary ''Russian-Muslim'' school in Baku in 1887, and facilitated opening of nine more by 1901.

[Wells, H.G.; Illustrated by Warwick Goble]
Irvington-on-the-Hudson, NY: Cosmopolitan Press, 1897-1898. Hardcover. Very Good+. Hardcover. Scarce. The first appearance of Well's famous science fiction novel was its serial publication in 1897-1898 in Cosmopolitan magazine in the United States and in 1897 in Pearson's in England. The first hardcover book was published in 1898 by William Heinemann in the United Kingdom. The novel about a war between earth and extraterrestrials from Mars was a popular hit and has never been out of print. The book was serialized in nine parts. Part I appeared in Volume XXII in April 1897. Parts II-VII appeared from May to November 1897 in Volume XXIII. The last two parts appeared in December 1897 and January 1898 in Volume XXIV. 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. Also included within these volumes are stories about current events happening at the time such as prohibition, plagues and starvation in India, newly released photographs of the Civil War by Matthew Brady, as well as many other pieces of literature and poetry. Bound in modern black cloth with gilt ruling and titling to spine. Light scuffing to spine edges but very good. Interior pages are clean and bright.
