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]

Horace Hutchinson, Ed
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. Tall quarto, 331 pgs. of text plus charming period ads at the rear. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

GALILEI, Galileo.
Padova, Tip. Fratelli Salmin, 1897. in-128, (mm 10 x 17, peso 1 grammo), pp. 206. Brossura leggera in carta celeste con titoli leggibili, ritratto di Galileo ben evidente. Conservato in un astuccio rigido cartonato moderno, foderato di stoffa, appositamente confezionato (cm 8,5 x 12). Estremamente raro, è considerato il libro più piccolo e leggero al mondo ; le pagine sono leggibili grazie all'uso di caratteri di stampa idonei, i caratteri del celebre "Dantino", i più piccoli mai usati: carattere di corpo 2 su 3 punti ''occhio di mosca'', inciso nel 1834 da Antonio Farina e fuso nel 1850 per gli editori milanesi Gnocchi. Nella lettera (l'originale è del 1615), lo scienziato si rivela sostenitore della teoria copernicana del moto planetario e si difende dall'accusa di eresia operando una fondamentale distinzione tra questioni naturali e questioni di fede. «For many years this tiny book, which is only half the size of an ordinary postage stamp, was considered the smallest printed from movable type. It is however surprising that even now (1981) very occasionally the book can be found in its original sheets... The explanation for such an exceptional survival could be that many binders must have shied away from the fiddling task of making up such a minute volume » (Bondy pp. 95-96).

Wells, H.G
C. Arthur Pearson, London. 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. Presentation copy, 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 ine … [Click Below for Full Description]

(KELMSCOTT PRESS). MORRIS, WILLIAM
Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1897. 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. The story of brave Osberne, who rescues his kidnapped lover Elfhild with the help of his magical sword, Broadcleaver, brings elements of Medieval tales of chivalry into what is considered an early example of the modern fantasy genre, with supernatural elements and created worlds. Because of the failing health of Morris, 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 Morris' wife, Jane. Because of the thickness of the book and the insubstantial materials the binding is made of, fine copies of this title are especially difficult to find. The present copy owes its superb condition to Laurence Hodson, the original owner and one of the first connoisseurs to appreciate the works of the private press revival. A man described by Sydney Cockerell as "facile princeps" (i.e., "easily the chief") collector of Kelmscott Press books, he obviously considered books as artifacts to be carefully protected, rather than objects to be read, and works from his library, which remained intact for over a century until 2013, are notable for their outstanding condition.. 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). Original holland-b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomson, J(oseph) J(ohn).
London Taylor & Francis, 1897. (22 x 14 cm). VII, 520 S. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen und 5 (4 gefalteten) Tafeln. Halbleinwandband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe. - Thomson gelingt 1897 die Aufklärung des Rätsels um die Natur der Kathodenstrahlen. Er kann nachweisen, dass die Kathodenstrahlen aus negativ geladenen Teilchen bestehen, deren Masse 1800mal kleiner ist als die des Wasserstoffatoms. Er wird damit zum Entdecker des Elektrons, das er aber bis 1907 als "Korpuskel" bezeichnet. "Damit hatte er die Physik revolutioniert. Es gab kein 'unzerstörbares' Atom mehr und es fing an, wahrscheinlich zu werden, daß der allgemeine Baustoff aller Materie eine Form von Energie war. Thomsons Entdeckung stellte fast jedem Zweig der Physik neue Aufgaben und öffnete neue Forschungsgebiete" (PMM). Den Nobelpreis für Physik erhält er 1906 allerdings für seine Untersuchungen zur elektrischen Leitung durch Gase. - Titel etwas gebräunt und gestempelt. Rücken leicht ausgebleicht, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. - DSB 13, 371, 26; PMM 386 (a); Dibner 165 [Attributes: First Edition]
