AUSTEN Jane
1897-98. 6 volumes in 5. Frontispieces and illustrations by Hugh Thomson and Charles E. Brock, 'Northanger Abbey and Persuasion' the first Macmillan edition, 1897, the other volumes the 1898 reprint, 8vo., original publisher's red cloth, richly gilt ahfter designs by A.A. Turbayne, yellow peacock endpapers, a.e.g. Macmillan & Co., London. The most decorative of all Jane Austen collected editions, the design of this set echoing loudly with the then current 'Art Nouveau' style, by an American artist working in England who specialised in book-binding design, his work reminiscent of his contemporaries Laurence Housman and Charles Ricketts, and later Talwyn Morris, although his style is considerably more flamboyant than theirs. His work was highly prized in his own time, his name as designer often appearing in publisher's adverts for forthcoming books, which was highly unusual at a time when much book design was done anonymously. 'Pride and Prejudice' illustrated by Brock, the others by Hugh Thomson. Spines very slightly faded, back cover of 'Sense and Sensibility' with a small stain, circular stain to the rear cover of 'Mansfield Park', still a fine set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Heinrich KIEPERT (1818 - 1899).
Berlin: Dietrich Reimer (Ernst Vohsen). Chromolithograph with contemporary manuscript additions in red and black pen (Good, some wear along original vertical centerfold, lacking original card covers), 59 x 94 cm (23 x 37 inches). A unique example of Heinrich Kiepert’s very rare map of Thessaly and Epirus, the era’s best general map of the region straddling the Greek-Ottoman border, featuring manuscript additions detailing Greek troop movements against Ottoman positions during the First Balkan War (1912-3). - This is a unique example of the era’s finest general map of Northwestern Greece, featuring manuscript annotations relating to Greece troop movements against the Ottomans during the First Balkan War (1912-3). The map embraces the traditional regions of Epirus and Thessaly, which are today largely within Greece, with a small part being in Albania. It is by far and away the most accurate map of the region produced to the time, having been made by Heinrich Kiepert, the period’s foremost authority on the geography of the Ottoman Empire. Between 1832, when the Kingdom of Greece obtained its independence (but controlling only a minority part of today’s Greece), through to 1912-3, the region depicted was major flashpoint in geopolitics, along the fault line between Greece and the Ottoman Empire. The First Balkan War was a watershed moment in the history of modern Greece, in that the Greek people assumed sovereignty over of their northern lands for the first time in many centuries. The map’s scope extends from Corfu, in the northwest, to Thessaloniki, in the northeast, and from … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ferri presenta quest'opera del suo allievo Niceforo sottolineando come questi sviluppasse il metodo della scuola positiva e seguisse l'indirizzo biologico e sociologico dell'antropologia criminale. Secondo Niceforo, la delinquenza va ricercata nel temperamento del popolo sardo incline alle azioni criminali. Per l'autore inoltre anche il clima e l'alimentazione appaiono fattori decisivi per la fisiologia e la psicologia dei popoli. ITA

CAIRD, Mona.
London: George Redway, 1897. London: George Redway,, 1897. And other essays on the status and destiny of woman. Octavo. Original brown cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, boards panelled in blind, small ring centrepiece to front board in gilt, edges uncut, partially unopened. Ownership stamps to front free endpaper. Light rubbing to extremities, spine ends bumped, free endpapers browned, a very good copy. First edition of the New Woman novelist's collection of essays on equality for women in marriage and for equal partnerships in the home, which were previously variously published in the Fortnightly Review, the Nineteenth Century, the North American Review, and the Westminster Review. "Her essays are frequently derisive and she employs irony to make her points about the repressive order of society which cannot separate wives from other types of property. As a progressive thinker, Caird sought legal reforms in childcare and divorce which would improve women's social positions by removing the stigmas of irresponsibility and ignorance. Her views have been the subject of late twentieth-century feminist literary criticism concentrated on how she approached the issue of social change in her fiction and her essays. Her efforts earned her the label of 'feminist' in her lifetime and she has been described by John Sutherland as 'one of the most aggressive of the New Woman novelists' (Sutherland, 99)" (ODNB).

L?album pubblicato nel 1897 probabilmente in forma privata per i partecipanti alla caccia è dedicato al Marchese Luciano di Roccagiovine Capocaccia, con una bellissima prefazione di Gabriele d'Annunzio: "Al caro Master, non v'è al mondo poesia che uguaglia di profondità e di altezza questa dell'Agro, e in nessuna ora io mi sono sentito vivere d'una vita così intensa , così pura e così libera come quando il vostro -Tally ho!- più secco e più risoluto d'un colpo di frusta o di un colpo di speroni lanciava il mio cavallo su una di quelle vaste solitudini fiorite, in fondo a cui sorge l'aspra maceria che la volpe incalzata dai cani sorpassa allungandosi contro le pietre vivida e agile come una fiamma fulva. Non mai, quanto allora, io mi son sentito della medesima razza di quel Claudio Cantelmo che a cavallo per l'Agro attingeva la suprema ebrezza aspirando dalle gramigne putride l'odore della morte." Il testo della Baronessa di Munchausen è suddiviso in giornate di caccia: 23 Novembre 1896, Tre Fontane; 28 Novembre 1896, Coazzo; 1 dicembre, Centocelle. 15 marzo, Ponte Salario. Affascinante resoconto di caccia alla volpe nell?Agro Romano alla fine dell?Ottocento. Axs [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Conrad, Joseph.
New York: Dodd, Mead and Company, 1897. 8vo., [iv], 217 pp., title-page printed in red and black within a double-ruled border, with a hedera. Original pictorial light-blue cloth with lettering in gilt, and backstrip with lettering in gilt. Boards a bit rubbed around the edge, faint foxing to outer margins, small chip to the top-edge of the last leaf of text; very good. First edition, first printing, in original cloth. With "Island" for "Islands" on the title-page, and the headline and page number not printed on p. 58. Only 1000 copies of this edition were printed (including those issued with the 1898 title-page), this tale would thereafter be published with the title The Nigger of the Narcissus, which was the title originally offered by the author, but changed by the publishers who argued that the American public would not be interested in a book about a Black man. The original title was restored for all subsequent editions, making this variant-titled edition one of the more sought after of Conrad's works. Cagle A3b; Keating 9; Smith 3; Wise 4.

BIGOT (Georges Ferdinand);
Tokyo 1897 In-4 oblong de 20 planches dont 1 de titre, cousu à la japonaise, couverture imprimée. Album de caricatures humoristiques des manifestations grandioses célébrant le jubilée de diamant de la reine Victoria. Bigot (1860-1927) arrive au Japon en 1882 et s'adapte très vite au mode de vie japonais ; il obtient assez rapidement un poste de professeur de dessin occidental, à l'école de l'armée de terre, avant d'enseigner le français. Vivant de l'intérieur l'occidentalisation très rapide du Japon au début de l'ère Meiji (1868-1912), il observe cette société bouillonnante et en publie caricatures et périodiques satiriques. Cette ère nouvelle, a transformé le Japon, jusque-là régi par un régime féodal, l'a ouvert aux étrangers et introduit de grands changements. Bigot refusa la vision idéalisée d'un Japon, en marche vers le modernisme, se heurtant au gouvernement japonais de plus en plus nationaliste, qui le contraindra à partir en 1899, quelques semaines avant la suppression des concessions étrangères. Ses publication sont finalement interdit à la vente dès 1900, tandis qu'en France elle l'ont tout simplement fait oublier. Les nombreux albums de caricatures et les différents périodiques qu'il laisse derrière lui vaudront bien des années plus tard d'être reconnu comme le " caricaturiste de l'ère Meiji". Il est considéré par la jeune génération de dessinateur de Manga, comme le père de ce genre. (Héléne Conevin, De la gravure à la caricature : le Japon de Meiji vu par G. Bigot, 1990).

ROBERTS, Morley.
London, Hutchinson 1897. Octavo publisher's cloth (cover marked); eight plates by A.D. McCormick. A few spots and minor signs of use; a pretty good copy. First edition, colonial issue, of one of the more famous west Australian lost race novels - though lost race is stretching it a bit. The white tribe here is descended from escaped convicts. But they are swimming in gold and there were pygmy cave dwellers. [Attributes: First Edition]
