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]

Edwards, W.H.
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]

Country Life, London, 1897. 35 heavy folio volumes. Matching - if faded - navy cloth with one variant (blue). A wonderful treasure trove and reference source but very large and heavy of course, currently in five large boxes. These volumes typically sell for between £100 and £175 each. 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. Multiply by 35 volumes and then add in all the wonderful photographs. Many articles on country pursuits - many of their time including otter hunting and big game shooting. 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.

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. The first page of each volume has two small black and white stamps - one as property of the Rhode Island School of Design Library and the other its withdrawal notice. No other library markings but sli … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wells, H.G
London: C. Arthur Pearson, 1897. First edition, first issue, with the title page printed in orange and black and pages 247 and 248 being publisher's ads. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "W. Pett Ridge from H. G. Wells." The recipient William Pett Ridge was a fellow novelist and friend of Wells. In 1924, novelist Edwin Pugh recalled his time with Wells and Ridge, "I see him most clearly, as he was in those days, through a blue haze of tobacco smoke. We used sometimes to travel together from Waterloo to Worcester Park on our way to spend a Saturday afternoon and evening with H. G. Wells." Hammond B4. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A nice association copy. Originally serialized in Pearson's Weekly in 1897, The Invisible Man was published as a novel the same year. The Invisible Man of the title is Griffin, a scientist who has devoted himself to research into optics and invents a way to change a body's refractive index to that of air so that it neither absorbs nor reflects light and thus becomes invisible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but fails in his attempt to reverse it. Readers found The Invisible Man--unlike its immediate predecessor, The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896)--accessible and gripping. Joseph Conrad, in a December 1898 letter to Wells, praised the book: "Frankly--it is uncommonly fine. One can always see a lot in your work--there is always a 'beyond' to your books--but into this... you've managed to put an amazing quantity of effects." The Invisible Man remains not only an inescapable i … [Click Below for Full Description]

WARNER, Charles Dudley (1829-1900).
New York,: Harper's Bazaar, October 1897., 1897. Loose, 22x15 cm. 26 leaves. Laid into unique 3-piece green and crimson gilt-decorated morocco pull-off slip-case, made by The Adams Bindery in New York [ca.1897-1900], one of the great bookbinderies of early 20th century America. First page lightly foxed. SIGNED by Warner on the final page. Near fine. ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT ESSAY BY CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER, SAMUEL CLEMENS' FRIEND & COLLABORATOR. Autograph manuscript, 26 leaves, of the first two parts of Warner's "Editor's Study" essay published in volume 95, October, 1897 [pp. 798-800], of Harper's Bazaar (part III, a single paragraph review of George du Maurier's The Martian, is not included). On their editorial staff since 1884, this is likely the manuscript Warner submitted to Harper's—though there are minor authorial corrections throughout, otherwise the text appears identical to the published version. Warner penned the "Editors Drawer" from 1884-1892, then took on the aforementioned "Editor's Study". / Part I is both a negative review of Edward Bellamy's Utopian novel Equality, (1897), and a rebuttal of Bellamy's socialist ideas. "Equality is a mischievous book, because it tends to divert the attention from the serious and awful social and political problems we have to solve, and which we should go at like men and Christians, in to the dreams, the impossible fantasies, of feather-headed socialism." / Part II is an extended and somewhat prescient critique of contemporary children's literature, very similar to Harold Bloom's more recent takedown of the Harry Potter series. … [Click Below for Full Description]

STOKER, Bram (1847-1912)
Westminster: Archibald Constable and Company, 1897. FIRST EDITION, fourth printing. Octavo. [i-vii], viii-ix, [1], 2-390, [1], blank; [1], advertisement for 'The Shoulder of Shasta; 16, catalogue. Original yellow cloth blocked in red, edges untrimmed. This copy comprises first edition sheets bound up slightly later with the 'The Shoulder of Shasta' advert and a 16-page catalogue inserted (dated 1898). The present copy's publisher list features an advert for Dracula to p.10 (importantly without its edition noted) and is entirely unopened/uncut. Other and later lists are noted, some promoting Dracula in '5th Edition'. The printing history of Dracula is complex; first printings (May 1897) are on thick paper and have no adverts at all; the second printing includes the 'Shasta' leaf; thinner text block copies follow, such as this, and contain an undated 16-page publisher's catalogue, of which later dated versions may include an advert for Dracula. There are no textual differences concerning the early printings. Our copy appears to be the fourth printing and is apparently an elusive one among dedicated Stoker collectors. Neat (and helpful) contemporary ink name dated 'April 1898'. Very clean internally, signs of respectful handling on the outside with a uniformly age-toned backstrip; A bright and pleasing copy in the original unsophisticated binding. A scarce Spring 1898 issue of one of the most important weird tales in the history of the weird, and one that enabled an entire generation of British male youth to witness Madeleine Smith without any clothes on, which is the kind of … [Click Below for Full Description]

PIMODAN Claude Rarecourt de la Vallée
1897]. First and only edition. 26 collotype plates. Folio. Original decorated boards, original ties. Last plate stuck to back board, marginal damage to top board, overall a very good copy. Inscribed presentation by Pimodan to Colonel Coland. Tokyo, Ogawa, n.d. [but ca. This album documents the visit to Taiwan of a Japanese military delegation headed by five officers (General Kawakami, Col. Iditti, Col. Murata, Com. Akashi, and Mr. Sekiya). They were accompanied by the French military attache Claude Pimodan (1859-1923). The purpose of the visit was to inspect the pacified areas in the new colony: In the wake of the first Sino-Japanese war of 1895 Formosa was ceded to Japan, however, Rebublican forces continued to resist occupation and in a campaign that lasted six months the Chinese opposition was defeated by Japan. A year later it was safe to send a delegation and the images chart the route from Taipei in the north towards Kaohsiung in the south via Jiayi and Tainan, locations that had seen fighting in the past year. Of particular interest are photographs of the Pescadores (Penghu Islands) which document the previous French presence. The Pescadores had been briefly occupied by French troops in 1885 and it must have been with a sense of triumph the the Japanese could now show it as theirs. Since this book had a military content it was not for sale. It is highly likely that the images were taken by members of the delegation and that they asked for it to be privately printed by Ogawa. The French title might even indicate that the album was intended for French military attaches … [Click Below for Full Description]

J.S. Virtue & Co, London, 1897. A very solid copy of this wonderful late 19th century survey of British golf links, richly illustrated thruout with hundreds of crisp black-and-white photos. Tasteful former owner bookplate at the front pastedown and, above it, the official bookplate of "The Golf Museum and Library of the United States Golf Association", which had been given this copy by The Country Club, Brookline, MA. On the first blank endpaper, there appears the stamp of "The Country Club, Brookline, Mass" and, at the foot of the same page, the same former owner's neat, small signature. Beyond these signs of provenance, this is a surprisingly bright, well-preserved copy. Crisp gilt-titling at the front panel and spine and, save for a couple of tiny spots toward the front panel's top-edge, almost no wear to speak of to the panels. Internally, very clean as well, with no writing or markings of any kind apart from the aforementioned bookplates and stamps. Rear inner hinge tender but still perfectly sturdy.
