The town of Williamsville's census ledgers from the year 1897. Williamsville is a northeastern suburb of Buffalo, located in the western part of New York State in Erie County. Bound in two slim volumes with cardboard binding and marbled boards. Both volumes measure 8.25'' x 13.75'', with the pages being unnumbered. The year 1897 was derived through careful research into the lives of the people in the books, as the year is not actually listed in the ledgers. Includes many prominent families of the time, whose names will still be recognizable to anybody who drives through the Buffalo area: Hopkins, Wehrle, Britting, Bitterman, Crittenden, Dodge, Reist, Strickler, Snyder, Diehl, Grove, Lapp, Spaulding, and Steinbrenner (who may have been related to the late George Steinbrenner, former owner of the New York Yankees). These volumes are an invaluable part of the local history and genealogy records of the Williamsville and greater Buffalo area. The first volume is in very good condition. The boards are well-preserved, though scuffed at the edges. Light shelf wear to the spine and some staining to the black cloth that binds the book. A previous owner's stamp is present on the front pastedown. The binding is starting to crack slightly at the hinges. Some smudging and staining to the pages, as is expected for a book of this time period and condition. Some names in ink have also bled through in places. The second volume is in much the same condition. Slightly more chipping at the edges of the boards and shelf wear to the spine.

Mucha, Alphonse
?Incantation/ Salammb?? lithograph by Alphonse Mucha, printed by F. Champenois in Paris as a special supplement for L?Estampe Moderne, issued August 1897. Signed in the stone lower left. Size: 38 x 21,7 cm.Mucha was probably the single most famous and influential artist of the whole Art Nouveau movement in Europe. This lithograph he made for L?Estampe Moderne, is an outstanding example of the finest period of his decorative style. With its combination of an exotic richness, an overt and luxuriant sensuality, and the marvellous flowing sinuous patterns of line and colour it created a whole new era of taste.In 1862 Gutave Flaubert wrote his romantic novel ?Salammb??, about the fictional daughter of Hamilcar Barca, the barbaric ruler of Carthage as a subject, in which she was searching for a magic veil (?le Za?mph? seen here trailing from her shoulder) that was stolen from the city shortly after the First Punic War. Salammb? falls in love with the barbarian M?tho, the man who stole the veil. When M?tho is caught and tortured to death, she choses to die rather than marry the man she was meant for. The Za?mph has brought death upon those who touched it.Gustave Flaubert?s ?Salammb?? is an often stirring mixture and intertwining of the history of the Punic Wars and of the myths held by the people of ancient Carthage. It includes some of the most erotic passages in 19th century literature, between the lovely and exotically beautiful Salammb? and M?tho, the leader of the barbarians.In the scene created by Mucha, a priestess advises Salammb? during a session of incantation, that with … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHANUTE, Octave Alexander.
[Chicago: Western Society of Engineers], 1897. First edition. First edition, extremely rare offprint, of this seminal work in the history of aviation, and a remarkable association copy linking three great early American pioneers of aviation and technology. In this work, Chanute presented his findings from nearly 2,000 flights made at Dune Park, Indiana, on the shores of Lake Michigan, in the summer of the previous year. These test-flights, led to his introduction of the Pratt-trussed biplane configuration, the essential shape of the early airplane, which was later adopted by the Wright brothers, and which he described in the present article. "It was a pivotal moment in the history of aircraft design, ranking with Henson and Stringfellow's postulation of the Aerial Steam Carriage over half a century earlier and Cayley's even more distant derivation of the modern airplane shape. It ushered in an era of strong, light, straightforward, uncomplicated (and easily analysed) rectangular structures that quickly superseded the convoluted curves and framing of older attempts such as those by Adler and Lilienthal. Chanute, in short, had taken both glider experimentation and structural design to a new level, contributions of seminal importance" (Hallion, p. 177). "The Chanute glider, designed by Chanute but also incorporating the ideas of his young employee Herring with regard to automatic stability, was the most influential of all flying machines built before the Wright brothers began designing aircraft ... Wilbur Wright, whom Chanute befriended, understood the importance of the 1896 b … [Click Below for Full Description]

[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.

Soupault répond à un questionnaire. « Le surréalisme n'a pas été une « erreur de jeunesse » mais une expérience que j'ai poursuivis toute ma vie » « Cher Monsieur, J'ai bien reçu votre lettre du 28 décembre 80. Je réponds à vos questions. 1°) Je suis en effet l'auteur avec André Breton des Champs magnétiques (premier texte surréaliste) qui a donné naissance au surréalisme ; 2°) Mes « romans » qui sont des témoignages sont comme l'ont bien compris les critiques français et allemands des écrits surréalistes. 3°) Le surréalisme n'a pas été une « erreur de jeunesse » mais une expérience que j'ai poursuivie toute ma vie. Merci toutefois pour vos vœux. Philippe Soupault Avec mes meilleurs sentiments. Si vous souhaitez plus de précisions vous pourriez consulter mes entretiens parus chez l'éditeur Belfond sous le titre 20.000 et 1 jours où vous trouverez les réponses ».

There is a small label on the frame as well, and a small amount of surface wear to the spectrum. Overall nice and clean, something carefully preserved given that the classroom environment was it's likely home. This didactic chart illustrates what happens when light from a source like the sun is projected through a prism and broken up into it's constituent parts. The result is a continuous light spectrum which we see as colors much like an expanded rainbow. Scientist Joseph von Fraunhofer discovered that when properly projected one could also see "absorption lines" which appeared as dark lines in this spectrum, each of which had characteristic points (or wavelengths) in the spectrum. This discovery allowed the experimenter to help determine what elements were present in the source of the light thus viewed. It turns out this is very useful in astronomy and other scientific fields interested in understanding the composition of unknown materials. The observant reader will note that this chart doesn't actually show any Fraunhofer lines (which would be darker) but merely … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHANUTE, Octave Alexander
Western Society of Engineers], [Chicago, 1897. First edition, extremely rare offprint, of this seminal work in the history of aviation, and a remarkable association copy linking three great early American pioneers of aviation and technology. In this work, Chanute presented his findings from nearly 2,000 flights made at Dune Park, Indiana, on the shores of Lake Michigan, in the summer of the previous year. These test-flights, led to his introduction of the Pratt-trussed biplane configuration, the essential shape of the early airplane, which was later adopted by the Wright brothers, and which he described in the present article. "It was a pivotal moment in the history of aircraft design, ranking with Henson and Stringfellow's postulation of the Aerial Steam Carriage over half a century earlier and Cayley's even more distant derivation of the modern airplane shape. It ushered in an era of strong, light, straightforward, uncomplicated (and easily analysed) rectangular structures that quickly superseded the convoluted curves and framing of older attempts such as those by Adler and Lilienthal. Chanute, in short, had taken both glider experimentation and structural design to a new level, contributions of seminal importance" (Hallion, p. 177). "The Chanute glider, designed by Chanute but also incorporating the ideas of his young employee Herring with regard to automatic stability, was the most influential of all flying machines built before the Wright brothers began designing aircraft . Wilbur Wright, whom Chanute befriended, understood the importance of the 1896 biplane glider. 'T … [Click Below for Full Description]

Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1897. First Edition. Half Leather. Very Good binding. The House of Representatives, 54th Congress, 2nd Session, Documents number 151 through 249. Some of the issues dealt by the Congress include "Investigation of Coal and Gold Resources of Alaska," with a color folding map, 'Annual Reports' from ten railway companies, and a "List of Judgments, Court of Claims." The Panic of 1893, caused by collapsing wheat prices and a coup in Buenos Aires, was first signaled by the bankruptcy of the overextended Philadelphia and Reading Railroad. Blaming the largely Democratic Congress and President, voters vented their frustrations in the ballot box. The historic midterm elections just before the 54th Congress saw the Republicans gain 130 seats, securing the first of a series of GOP-controlled Congresses. Lacking House Documents No. 158, 164, 192, 202, 218, 230. With 18 folding maps and surveys, some color, some quite large, with significant loss to the final two maps.

[Salt Lake City]: George Q. Cannon & Sons, [1897]. First Edition. 53pp.Duodecimo [21.5 cm] 3/4 leather over marbled boards with matching pastedowns and endsheets and the title and author gilt stamped on the backstrip, T.E.G. Very good. Corners rubbed otherwise better than very good. Complete with all eighteen plates. Item #979 This work is considered to be the first LDS "fine press" work. Produced as a privately distributed keepsake for the still living Pioneers who made the trip west in 1847 that was revised from the author's larger work: 'An old sketch book.' The preface mentions an intended 500 copy print run, but whether or not that was the final number is unknown. "When the Jubilee Celebration of the strange journey - for it is that and those who made it that we are this year commemorating and honoring - was decided upon, it was suggested that an appropriate souvenir of the occasion would be 'The Old Sketch Book.' That work, however, was a large and costly volume of a limited edition, and hardly manageable for the present purpose. The author therefore decided to place the matter and sketches in the form now used, under the title of 'The Old Journey,' and carefully revised and lengthened the descriptive portions...It was in consideration of the singular fitness of the 'Old Journey' as a souvenir to be presented, during the Jubilee, to the Pioneers still living." - from the preface.

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

Rudyard Kipling
Captains Courageous Rudyard Kipling London: Macmillan and Co., Ltd., 1897 First British edition, retaining the front face of the original dust jacket Condition: Very Good This is the British first edition, noteworthy for both for interesting provenance and for retaining the illustrated front face of the original dust jacket. Kipling tells the story of the spoiled fifteen-year-old son of a millionaire who is lost at sea and finds himself rescued by the crew of a fishing schooner, which proves to be a redemption of both character and body. From an original 1897 review: "A big, soft-armed wave picks the boy from the deck of an ocean steamer, and drops him into a dory which happens with fairy-tale appropriateness to come by, and this convenient conveyance delivers him over to a crew of stern-faced, laconic fishermen, who knock the nonsense out of him and put him in the way of learning the two lessons that in Mr. Kipling's eyes make up the chief duty of man--to work and not to be afraid." This British first edition is a handsome production, featuring gilt-stamped blue cloth illustrated on both the front cover and spine, black endpapers, gilt page edges, and 22 full-page illustrations by I. W. Taber within. This copy is in very good condition. The blue cloth binding is tight with modest wear to spine ends and corners, light scuffing to the blank rear cover, and a slight forward lean. The spine gilt is mildly dulled, still distinct but no longer vibrant. The contents remain respectably bright, though we do note intermittent spotting throughout. The original black endpapers are int … [Click Below for Full Description]

Beerbohm, Max
[1897]. Original caricature done in ink on paper. The caricature celebrates the opening night of The Happy Life, a play by Louis N. Parker and Murray Carson, staged at the Duke of York's Theatre, London, in 1897. It depicts Parker (standing atop the Duke of York's column), Carson, and Max (top hat and wasp-waisted coat) himself drinking champagne. Both Parker and Carson were important dramatists at the turn of the century; Beerbohm would later collaborate with Carson on a one-act "curtain-raiser" in 1914, The fly on the wheel. Inscribed "Best wishes in a great success. December 6 '97" and signed "Max." Unrecorded; not in Hart-Davis's catalogue of Beerbohm's caricatures. In near fine condition and nicely framed. 20 x 25.4 cm. ORIG/011216.
