RYAN, Charles Snoddgrass, and John SANDES.
London, Murray, 1897. 8vo. Splendid school prize binding for Dulwich College, dated 1904, of blue full calf, blocked in gilt; pp. xix, 435, photogravure portrait and two maps, printed on good quality paper and well-preserved. Very rare first edition. Pleven in Bulgaria was known as Plevna during the Russo-Turkish war in 1877, when the battle for Plevna became the key for claiming victory in the war. After five months of bloody siege, the Russians entered the town in 10 December 1877. The Eastern Anatolian city of Erzerum was attacked and, after overcoming strong resistance, was captured by the Russian army later that same war. The Australian surgeon Ryan (1853-1926) 'undertook postgraduate study in Bonn and Vienna. In Rome, he saw in the London Times an advertisement by the Turkish government for twenty military surgeons. Seeking adventure and experience, he returned to London, was interviewed at the Turkish embassy, and two days later was en route to Constantinople. In mid-1876 he served in the final stages of the Turko-Servian war and then in the Russo-Turkish campaign of 1877-78. He spent more than four months in the siege of Plevna (Pleven, Bulgaria), which led to his nickname 'Plevna', and finally at Erzeroum in Turkish Armenia, after the fall of which he became a Russian prisoner of war. For his war services he was decorated with the Turkish orders of the Osmanieh and the Medjidie and the War medal' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). - One of the best and most insightful reports of this war, written not without humor and highly legible.

Gant, J.L.
1897. Autographed Letter Signed, 2 pages. Written from Cave Creek on arrival from Seven Springs, Arizona. Because of the many caves, in the area Cave Creek was described as a wash with some surrounding mines, a failed cattle ranch but with Cartwright Ranch mentioned here there soon was need for a Post Office. The Phoenix Daily Herald described Cave Creek as "a delightful place for camping". In the same year as this letter, there was now a stage coach running Monday and Fridays between little Cave Creek and Phoenix. A Post Office was established in 1896, and there was a general store offering tools and tack. Since it would be another decade before a bank was established, cash was dispensed from tin cans or special belts. Though the writer spells "here" as "hear", he talks about his arrival from Seven Springs which was on the outer edge of the Cartwright Ranch (see Grady, Homesteading Along the Creek, p. 47, 137ff.) In the process, he had lost his work team and tried to track them but Mr. Cartwright had not yet come back from an undisclosed location. He expresses sorrow about her buggy (which apparently was governed by an out of control horse. He says while it is hot where Sis is [Phoenix?] it was near freezing on the ranch here on May 20. He notes the stable boy is hitching up his team so he has to go. The original mailing envelope addressed to Miss Mamie Moore c/o of the New York Store on E. Washington in Phoenix. [various city directories show the address as 222-4th E. Washington].

Frontispiece portrait with tissue-guard, vignette title page, 8 plates by Frederic Remington with captioned tissue-guards, illustrations in the text, and a folding map.

Henry Inman (1837–1899), was a member of the US Army, serving for the Union during the Civil War. At the end of the war he was sent to Kansas where he attained the brevet of lieutenant-colonel in February 1869 for his role in the Indian Wars. This work is dedicated to William Cody, "Buffalo Bill", a close friend of Inman's who provided the preface and helped finance the work. The attached letter gives supposed confirmation that the town of Inman and Lake Inman, the largest natural lake in Kansas, were named after the author due to their proximity to the Santa Fé trail.

A lost race advanture, this copy presented with a postcard of the author inscribed by him: "To my friend Alfred Pearse \ William Le Queux." Alfred Pearse provided the illustrations for the book. It's not clear whether the postcard was presented to Pearse with the book, though it would be an odd choice of presentation otherwise. The book itself is very good, cloth a little mottled, spine tips and corners a little bumped. Internally, in decent shape with a couple of spots to the title page.

Léopold Dauphin
Léon Vanier, 1897. broché Édition originale du premier livre de l'auteur. Un des 12 exemplaires numérotés sur Hollande, seul tirage de tête avec 8 Japon. Musicien, compositeur et poète, Léopold Dauphin est un ami intime de Mallarmé. Ils se rencontrent en 1874 chez le graveur Prunaire qui occupe, à Valvins, entre la forêt de Fontainebleau et la Seine, la maison du peintre Émile Bayard. Aux beaux jours, l'aquafortiste accueille ses amis parisiens, peintres ou poètes, qui viennent planter leur chevalet ou profiter des charmes du lieu. Outre Léopold Dauphin, Philippe Burty, Léon Dierx - qui vient surtout pour peindre - Chevin, Toussenel ou Gustave Mathieu sont les plus assidus. Séduits par l'endroit, les Mallarmé y louent une petite maison, pour les vacances et le repos, à quelque distance de la maison où les Dauphin passent leurs étés. Voisin élu d'une douzaine de saisons valvinoises, le musicien deviendra le compagnon de rêverie, délicieux et fidèle, du poète - son Vacquerie des bois... Ensemble ils parcourent la région, ou s'adonnent à la navigation à bord du « S.M. », la fluide yole à jamais littéraire immortalisée par Paul Valéry. Au cours de causeries forestières, champêtres ou fluviales, Mallarmé, avec une affectueuse indulgence, répond aux sollicitations de son ami, de six ans son cadet. Il aiguille sa pensée littéraire, conseille des lectures ou, lors d'entretiens poématiques (mot de Banville), lui délivre de précieux enseignements - ainsi encourage-t-il en lui une veine poétique qui va de pair avec son talent musical. A partir de 1886 et jusqu'en 1896, Dauphin égrèn … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vivian, Thomas J. [Jondrie]
London and NY: F. Tennyson Neely, (1897.) 1st edition. A scarce title in "Neely's Prismatic Library" series. A collection of stories and sketches, ranging from the risqué to science fiction, horror, fantasy, and crime. 195 + (10) pages of ads. 12mo, 6.5 by 4 inches. Pictorial green cloth, decorated in silver, red, and black. Top edge gilt. Binding signed with the conjoined monogram HBM [American book designer Harry B. Matthews, active 1897-1907.] Eight illustrations in the text by various artists. VG with modest wear and signs of age. Sound, tight binding. The first section details what caused 'Smiles' in seven people: a waiter, widow, broker, purser, grandmother, lady, and maiden. The stories are told with "spice and vigor," in the words of a contemporary reviewer, even if they have a "dash of impropriety" about them. The lively 'Fibs' are comprised of nine stories and tall tales with sensational and fantastical themes. Among the storylines: a Swedish sailor is transformed after eating protoplasmic pebbles; a doctor in Peru practices vivisection by removing the brain of a living axe murderer; a killer who is heir to a huge fortune escapes his own hanging with the help of a greedy sheriff; an ancient Persian mirror gives a fatal view of an adulterous affair of the heart; an ambitious engineering project attempts to freeze England by bricking up the Gulf Stream. The contents are rounded out by a California ghost story, a revenge tale set in a lifeboat, a brief courtship story with a twist, and an account of being tormented by the Devil.

CHOPIN, Kate
Chicago: Way and Williams, 1897. Very Good. First edition. 12mo. 416pp. Decorated blue cloth stamped in green and silver. Small, contemporary owner name ("Mrs. Baker"), light rubbing to the spine ends, else very good or better. The author's second book, like her first, a collection of Creole stories. Chopin, of French and Irish extraction, wrote sensitive and insightful stories of her Creole neighbors after the manner of De Maupassant, and enjoyed some popularity until her beautifully written novel, The Awakening, about a mixed race marriage and a married woman's love for a man not her husband. Despite the relative tameness of the subject now, the novel rendered her persona non grata in regular publishing circles, from which she never recovered. Her understanding of both the contemporary feminine mind, and her observations of her Louisiana Creole neighbors were unparalleled for the time.
