Account Book]
1897-1905?, Stormville [Dutchess County, New York]: 1897 - Folio (13x8), cloth with leather tips, 372 pp., plus a few letters and bills, and a number of sheets and notes with notations left in the ledger, some blank sheets. Binding shows a bit of wear, and some soiling, normal aging and browning; very good overall. Contents of this ledger suggest that J.S. Phillips was a merchant, and perhaps operated a general store. There are probably a couple thousand journal entries recording sales and balances. He kept accounts for his customers, and recorded their purchases. The contents include a few bills to him from supplies, a couple still in their original envelopes. Phillips and his son also appears to have been revenue collectors for the local school district, which is indicated in a note left in the ledger. Another document left in the ledger, suggests that one Jarvis S. Phillips, a relative, was a local justice of the peace. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

HORN EXPEDITION ; WINNECKE Charles A.
1897 - First edition. 2 vols. 23 photogravure plates. 8vo. A very good copy in original wrappers with manuscript note from Baldwin Spencer tipped in; accompanied by a portfolio of four maps and sheets within original printed card folding case, comprising a large folding map measuring 1290 x 1290 mm., a plan of the Hermannsburg mission measuring 822 x 587 mm., and two smaller loose folding sheets; book and maps housed together in early (?original) green cloth slipcase lettered 'Horn Exped. 1894'. Adelaide, C.E. Bristow, Government Printer, Important association copy of the narrative journal of the central Australian Horn scientific expedition, antagonistically presented by its author and expedition-leader Charles Winnecke to Baldwin Spencer, expedition member, famous anthropologist, and the editor of the competing official publication of the expedition; accompanied by a testy note by Spencer relating to the publication. Winnecke's journal of the Horn expedition was first planned as a parliamentary paper in 1896 but was quickly supressed by the state Premier following a complaint from William Austin Horn, financier of the expedition. Winnecke's narrative was then dropped from the official four-volume account of the expedition too. Previously, Horn had fallen out with Winnecke over finances, leaving other members of the expedition divided in their loyalty. Baldwin Spencer had sided with Horn, and therefore also fell out with Winnecke. The breakdown of relations between the three men is well documented in the surviving manuscript record: see, for example, the Spencer Papers in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Verlag von Veit & Co, Leipzig, 1897. vi+394 pages with plates, diagrams,tables and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 6") bound in three quarter pebble leather and marbled boards with gilt lettering to spine. Volume 52 (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 6047) First edition. Deutsche Schachzeitung was the first German chess magazine. Founded in 1846 by Ludwig Bledow under the title Schachzeitung der Berliner Schachgesellschaft, it took the name Deutsche Schachzeitung in 1872. (Another magazine used the title Deutsche Schachzeitung from 1846 to 1848.) When it ceased publication in December 1988 it was the oldest existing magazine in the world, having been published regularly since its founding in 1846 except for a five-year break (1945-1949) during World War II. Since January 1989, the Deutsche Schachzeitung was merged in the Deutsche-Schachblätter - Schach-Report which was edited in Hollfeld. The resulting magazine appeared with the names of both former magazines on its cover till December 1996. Since January 1997, this magazine again was merged in the Berlin magazine Schach. The resulting magazine kept the names Schach and Schach-Report on its cover for one year, but the name Deutsche Schachzeitung had disappeared from the cover. Since 1998, the magazine appears under the simple Schach. However, the table of contents is still headed by the names Deutsche Schachzeitung, Deutsche Schachblätter and Schach-Report. The Deutsche Schachzeitung was in its prime in the first two decades of the 20th century. Condition: Rebound lacking wrappers else very good.

Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1897 [issued 1898]. ONE OF 300 COPIES ON PAPER (and 10 on vellum). Dated 1897, but issued in February of 1898, this was the last romance written by William Morris and the final book but two to be produced at the Kelmscott Press. Because of Morris' failing health, the last few pages were written down from his dictation by Sydney Cockerell, and the work appeared posthumously, being printed from an uncorrected manuscript and seen through the press by his daughter, May Morris. The map on the front pastedown was the inspiration for Tolkien's vision of Middle Earth cartography. Because of the thickness of the book and the insubstantial materials it is made of, fine copies of this title are especially difficult to find.. 210 x 146 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 3/4"). 2 p.l.

NICHOLSON, William.
London: William Heinemann, [1897] - Larg quarto. Original cloth-backed pictorial paper boards, spine lettered in black, all edges red. With the advertisement for An Almanac of Twelve Sports for 189 tipped in to rear. Slight wear and rubbing to extremities, cloth lifting a little at spine head, endpapers lightly foxed, small tear to lower edge of rear free endpaper, overall a very good copy. Title page and 26 three-colour lithographs after the original woodcuts. First edition, the popular issue, the first of five picture books that Nicholson published with Heinemann and the work that "established Nicholson's solo reputation" (ODNB). It was published in October 1897 but postdated 1898. There was also a deluxe edition of approximately 50 copies printed directly from the woodblocks and coloured by hand, and a library edition bound in full cloth. Two of the plates differ from those in the deluxe edition: "E is for Executioner" and "T is for Toper" have changed to "E is for Earl" and "T is for Trumpeter", thus becoming more appropriate for a younger readership.

KELMSCOTT PRESS). MORRIS, WILLIAM
Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1897 [issued 1898]. ONE OF 300 COPIES ON PAPER (and 10 on vellum). Dated 1897, but issued in February of 1898, this was the last romance written by William Morris and the final book but two to be produced at the Kelmscott Press. Because of Morris' failing health, the last few pages were written down from his dictation by Sydney Cockerell, and the work appeared posthumously, being printed from an uncorrected manuscript and seen through the press by his daughter, May Morris. The map on the front pastedown was the inspiration for Tolkien's vision of Middle Earth cartography. Because of the thickness of the book and the insubstantial materials it is made of, fine copies of this title are especially difficult to find.. 210 x 146 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 3/4"). 2 p.l. (including woodcut map at front), 507, [1] pp. ONE OF 300 COPIES ON PAPER (and 10 on vellum). Publisher's blue paper boards, expertly rebacked with linen matching the original, spine with publisher's paper label at head, edges untrimmed. Front pastedown with line block map drawn by H.

BEARDSLEY, Aubrey). DOWSON, Ernest
Londen, Leonard Smithers, 1897. Original gilt green cloth with designs by Beardsley on both sides. (2), 46 p. Illustrated with a frontispice, two vignettes and an initial by Aubrey Beardsley. Printed in 330 copies. 1st edition. A few minuscule stains, but the binding is fine and the gold is shimmering brightly.l 'One of the masterpieces of book design in the Nineties' according to James G. Nelson in his Smithers book. An apogee in the work of these geniuses, both on the threshold of death (Beardsley 1872-1898, Dowson 1867-1900), forged to a perfect synthesis by publisher Leonard Smithers (1861-1907).

With the publisher's presentation blind stamp to the half title and following three leaves. In 1892 Bell (1868-1926) set out on what proved to be a formative journey to Tehran, where her uncle Sir Frank Lascelles was British minister. "Having studied Persian with the oriental scholar Sandford Arthur Strong during the winter prior to her journey, she embarked on a verse translation of the mystical poet Hafiz … to which she brought an insightful interpretation of the East's cultural depth and of the underlying ambiguities of Hafiz's poems. Her translation received a favourable critical reception on its publication and was long regarded as the best free- … [Click Below for Full Description]

Quer-4, 38 Lichtdruck-Taf. (compl.), Goldgeprägte OLwd.-Mappe mit losen Taf., Etwas berieben, Tafeln sauber Das Landesmuseum wurde 1897 in einem neu erbauten, burgähnlichen Gebäude von Gustav Gull nordwestlich der Haupthalle des Hauptbahnhofs beim heutigen Platzspitz-Park in Zürich eröffnet. Zürich hatte mit dem Projekt Märchenschloss einen Wettbewerb gegen andere Schweizer Städte gewonnen. Das Gebäude kombiniert verschiedenste Architekturstile und ist daher seit seiner Entstehung umstritten. Die Eidgenössischen Kommission für Denkmalpflege äusserte sich jedoch in einem Gutachten vom 27. November 1997 mit folgenden Worten: "Mit dem Landesmuseum als Einzelbau reagiert Gustav Gull architektonisch genau auf die gestellte Aufgabe. Die gewählte Form einer "mittelalterlichen Schlossanlage" reflektiert Geschichte und macht den Komplex leicht als Museumsbau erkennbar.
