Richard F. Burton
A Series of Seventy Original Illustrations to Captian Sir R. F. Burton's "Arabian Nights" and a portrait of Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton Reproduced from the Original Pictures in Oils specially painted by Albert Letchford First Edition of the Large-Size Choice Edition de Luxe (Series C) #75 of only 250 issues. Published by H.S. Nichols Ltd., London Letchford's paintings were not ready for the first edition of Burton's translation, published without any illustrations in 1885-1888; so they were instead incorporated in the Nichols edition of 1897. Penzer, p. 124. Albert Letchford's "greatest work," containing 71 beautiful plates commissioned as illustrations for Sir Richard Francis Burton's lively (and often daring) translation of The Arabian Nights-- the enduring, irresistible folk tales of Aladdin, Ali Baba and many more--each plate loose as issued with original captioned tissue guards, including portrait of Burton, with 15-page booklet, in original richly ornamental gilt-stamped portfolio. The Alf Layla wa-Layla ("One Thousand Nights and a Night") have enchanted readers for centuries with shimmering visions of a fabled land. Esteemed explorer and scholar Burton translated and annotated the Arabian Nights as "a legacy to his countrymen" (DNB). The prized Nichols editions-- one in 1894, not illustrated, and the 1897 edition with Letchford's plates-- were the first complete editions of Burton's translation after the rare, 16-volume first edition of 1885. Accomplished artist Albert Letchford was a "close friend of Sir Richard Burton." Letchford was a young man when he firs … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schwarz, Osias L.
1897. Original archive. Softcover. The 26 thick, octavo notebooks are written in a neat European hand, dated consecutively from 1897 through 1914. The first 11 volumes are written in the Czech language. From the middle of Vol. XII on, Schwarz, who is by then living in New York, writes in English. Each notebook has a title-page stating the inclusive dates of the contents and where they were written, with the earlier volumes penned in Focsani (Romania), Paris, Zurich, Berlin, Lausanne, Charlottenburg, and Sniatyn (now Ukraine, then part of the Austro-Hungarian empire). Starting with Vol. VII (April 1902-Oct. 1903), he does his writing in the U.S. His first "American" volume was partially written in NY and St. Louis, the next in St. Louis and "Pittsburg", and from Vol. IX on, he writes solely in NY and Pittsburgh. ~~ Schwarz's first "American" volume was partially written in New York and St. Louis; the next in St. Louis and "Pittsburg"; and from Vol. IX on, he writes solely in NY and Pittsburgh. ~~ With one exception, the volumes contain his "Cugetari" (translated in later volumes as "Reflections"), and these "reflections" are consecutively numbered. They vary in length from a few lines to several pages. The "cugetari" in these notebooks start at #177, and by the end of volume XXVI, Schwarz has reached #2,326.

Publisher's lettered wrappersProvenance: Francis Blake (presentation inscription on upper wrapper by James Means)The early flight experiments by "the father of aviation" which inspired Wilbur and Orville Wright.On 20 October 1897, aviation pioneer Octave Chanute presented his findings from nearly 2,000 flights made at Dune Park, Indiana, on the shores of Lake Michigan, in the summer of the previous year. Using a bi-plane glider, Chanute (with his partners Augustus Herring and William Avery) stayed aflight for 14 seconds, covering a distance of more than 350 feet. Wilbur Wright would later proclaim that Chanute's double-decker glider "represented a very great structural advance, as it was the first in which the principles of the modern truss bridge were fully applied to flying machine construction." Chanute's glider is considered the first modern aircraft structure. Delivered as an address to the Western Society of Engineers, the paper was printed in the Journal of the Society (Vol.2, No. XX), and first separately-published in this rare offprint."The friendship between Chanute and the Wright brothers began on 13 May 1900, when Wilbur Wright wrote to the famous engineer, introducing himself as someone 'afflicted with the belief that flight is possible to man.'

Bram Stoker. Hardback US Edition, Doubleday, 1897 Only Date Noted
In overall good condition with some wear to the corners and spine and some browning to the pages from age. Dracula by Bram Stoker in overall good condition. Published by Nelson Doubleday, the copyright page has 1897 as the only date and no other dates noted. A bit of research led me to an article that claims "Nelson Doubleday" was the original name of the company which started publishing at same time this title was released, as the original name of the company is on the copyright page and as the pages appear very aged i think this may be the first US edition however as i cannot prove it is first edition i cannot claim that it is. There is some wear to the corners and spine and the pages have some slight damp markings to the corners and show signs of heavy ageing.

Three bicycles linked together, and decorated with flowers, form the "Immortelle Bicycle Team" of Misses Allen, Perkins, and Cutler.

Silverman, The New Bibliopolis: French Book Collectors and the Culture of Print, 1880-1914). His bindings are much sought-after. Georges Montorgueil is a nom de plume of the Parisian journalist and author Octave Lebesgue (1857-1933).

Hartford, Ct. The American Publishing Co., 1897. First edition. The Estelle Doheny copy, with her red morocco bookplate. Presentation copy, inscribed: "Mr. James H. Scott with the compliments & respects of The Author. -- Good friends, good books & a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life. Truly yours, Mark Twain | Vienna, April 10, 1898." First issue with just the Hartford imprint and signature 11 on p. 161. A Very Good copy, presenting well, but with both hinges cracked and repaired. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell case. Extremely rare presentation copy with the addition of one of Twain's most famous aphorisms in his hand. With a distinguished provenance. Twain's well regarded travelogue, published in 1897. Dire financial straits had forced Twain to take a worldwide lecture tour in 1895 and compose a collection of his travels and experiences. Twain traveled widely, including to Africa, India, and Australia - and these writings contain much of Twain's characteristic humor as well as a pointed critique of imperialism. "This is one more ingredient in the curious, amusing, instructive, and at times brilliant farrago, half anecdotes, one quarter diary, one-eighth quotations and the rest delicious footing, which Mark Twain after much pondering decided to call 'Following the Equator.'" (Contemporary New York Times review). Very Good. Very Good.

The photograph illustrations show unique views of the city in the late 19th century. - This copy is numbered 191 (of 800?).
