CRANE, Walter, illus.) SPENSER, Edmund
London: George Allen, 1895-1897 - 6 volumes, quarto. Original cream-coloured cloth, gilt lettered spines, front covers lettered in red and with large pictorial gilt stamp, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Some thumbing to covers, a few inner joints cracked but sound, scattered light spotting but a very good set. Double-page illustrated title page to volume I, divisional titles, 88 full page plates, 80 headpieces, 55 tailpieces, by Walter Crane. First and limited Crane edition, one of 1,000 copies. A grand production, printed by the distinguished Chiswick Press on handmade paper, lavishly illustrated by Walter Crane and edited by the book collector and forger T. J. Wise – "of all people" (Percy Muir). Crane's designs encompass both an Art Nouveau and an Arts & Crafts aesthetic – he had, of course, worked with Morris at the Kelmscott Press – and this edition of Spenser's epic was issued at the height of his fame: he had an exhibition of his work touring Europe "and he was delighted to find that German collectors and museums bought his allegorical paintings, which chimed with German symbolist work" (ODNB). It was one of his last substantial commissions. [Attributes: First Edition]

The single most famous issue of the liberal and literary French newspaper, published from 1897 to 1916 under the editorial direction of Ernest Vaughan, and published by Georges Clemenceau, later the Prime Minister of France, with the headline "J'Accuse...! - Lettre au Président de la République" by Émile Zola, prefacing his article on the Dreyfus Affair. Scattered illustrations. Some tears and soiling along creases and folds, minor marginal losses. Tabloid. Paris 1898. The Dreyfus Affair was a political scandal that divided the Third French Republic from 1894 until its resolution in 1906, with the pro-Army primarily Catholic "anti-Dreyfusards" on one side and the pro-republican Dreyfusards on the other. It remains today one of the most notable examples of wrongful conviction, with notable influence coming from the press and public opinion. In December 1894, Captain Alfred Dreyfus was convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment for allegedly communicating French military secrets to the German Embassy in Paris. In 1896, evidence came to light identifying a different French Army officer, Major Ferdinand Walsin Esterházy, as the true culprit. High-ranking officers suppressed the evidence, and Esterházy was acquitted. Dreyfus was instead accused of additional charges based on falsified documents. Word of the cover-up spread, mainly owing to Zola's story in L'Aurore, and activists subsequently put pressure on the government to reopen the case. Finally, in 1906, Dreyfus was exonerated and reinstated as a major in the French Army.

Rosenfeld, Morris

In Yiddish, with English and Yiddish covers. Singerman 5258. Rosenfeld sent this copy through the mail, and his handwritten name and return address, clipped from the package, has been pasted onto the English Cover. Title translates into English as, "Song Book. " Morris Rosenfeld (1862 – 1923) was a Yiddish poet whose work sheds light on the living circumstances of emigrants from Eastern Europe in New York's tailoring workshops. "In 1888 Rosenfeld published his first collection of socialist poems.An excellent orator, Rosenfeld often recited his poems to enthusiastic audiences at socialist and union events, and later at large public readings and concerts. Over the next decades his reputation spread as the 'poet laureate of labor. ' His songs were sung by workers in sweatshops, tenement houses, meetings and concerts. In 1898, Harvard professor of Slavic Studies Leo Wiener translated Rosenfeld's Lider-bukh (The Book of Songs) into English with the title Songs from the Ghetto. The book's publication introduced Rosenfeld to the non-Jewish world and was instrumental in transforming him from an obscure local song writer into an established literary figure. His poems were subsequently translated into many European languages, including German, Hungarian, Polish, Rumanian and Russian. His works, known for their stark, realistic presentation of immigrant and sweatshop life, were the subject of many reviews and articles … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leitenberger, Friedrich Freiherr von, Industrieller (1837-1899).
Wien, 16. XII, 1897. 1 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An ein Komitee: "Ich danke verbindlichst für die mich in hohem Grade ehrende Einladung, das Ehren Präsidium des Prager deutschen Theater-Vereins-Balles zu übernehmen; leider jedoch bin ich außer Lage, davon Gebrauch zu machen [...]". - Friedrich Leitenberger hatte 1858 die Leitung des Familienunternehmens in Josefsthal-Kosmanos übernommen und widmete sich zunächst der von seinem Onkel Friedrich eingeleiteten maschinellen Ausstattung der Textilfabrik. "Neben der Aufstellung einer Dampfmaschine von 120 PS errichtete er eine Gasanstalt und nahm mehrfärbige Walzendruckmaschinen in Betrieb. Seit 1881 arbeitete er mit zwölffärbigen Druckmaschinen. In Grottau ließ er eine neue Baumwollspinnerei und -weberei erbauen. Leitenberger war um die soziale Absicherung seiner Arbeiter und Angestellten bemüht; er gründete eine Kranken-, Pensions- und Unterstützungskasse und unterhielt eine Volksschule für die Kinder seiner mehr als 2000 Arbeiter. Er gründete den Centralverband der Industriellen Österreichs, war böhmischer Landtags- und Reichstagsabgeordneter und wurde 1873 in den Freiherrenstand erhoben" (DBE).

FORNEY, MATTHIAS N.
The Railroad Gazette, New York, 1897. A very clean, bright and solid copy of this important railroad volume. This copy has been professionally restored with the original spine laid down.

They can easily be re-glued if one wanted to do so. Near Fine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
