1898. Chromolithographed board game on paper produced after the famous story by Zola was published in the Paris newspaper, L'Aurore in the wake of the Dreyfus Affair, in the style of the Game of the Goose, with the 63 gameboard spaces occupied by personalities and events related to the Affair, the geese replaced by "Wells of Truth" with a nude woman. Some toning and mild staining or soiling, some slight marginal losses, most repaired, and some repaired closed tears, overall very good. Sheet size approximately 24 x 18-1/4 inches. Loose as issued. Paris (Imprimerie Charaire) n.d. (circa 1898). The Dreyfus Affair was a political scandal that divided the Third French Republic from 1894 until its resolution in 1906, with the pro-Army primarily Catholic "anti-Dreyfusards" on one side and the pro-republican Dreyfusards on the other. It remains today one of the most notable examples of wrongful conviction, with notable influence coming from the press and public opinion. In December 1894, Captain Alfred Dreyfus was convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment for allegedly communicating French military secrets to the German Embassy in Paris. In 1896, evidence came to light identifying a different French Army officer, Major Ferdinand Walsin Esterházy, as the true culprit. High-ranking officers suppressed the evidence, and Esterházy was acquitted. Dreyfus was instead accused of additional charges based on falsified documents. Word of the cover-up spread, mainly owing to Zola's story in L'Aurore, and activists subsequently put pressure on the government to reo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Crowley, Aleister : Writing as 'A Gentleman of the University of Cambridge.'
The sole UK printing. Original olive green paper-covered boards with white cloth spine and paper title label. The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. The binding remains tight. The board edges are slightly rubbed in places. The spine and label are toned and the spine label is rubbed to one of its edges, but the lettering is just about complete. Light offsetting to the end papers otherwise the book is clean internally with no inscriptions. The book is protected in a loose Mylar archival cover. According to Duncombe-Jewell the edition comprised 250 cloth-bound copies on hand-made paper (as this copy), and 2 copies on vellum. There are three known binding variants of the hand-made paper edition, respectively, olive green, slate-blue, and brick-red paper covered boards. The order of precedence has never been established although they were most likely published simultaneously. A story in verse, 'The Tale of Archais' is commonly said to be Crowley's second published book following 'Aceldama', although uncertainty remains as to whether or not his clandestinely-published 'White Stains' preceded it. Crowley issued 'The Tale of Archais' under the pseudonym 'A Gentleman of the University of Cambridge', the same nom de plume that he had used for 'Aceldama'. The choice of pseudonym was most likely a sort of hommage to Shelley, who wrote his gothic novel 'St. Irvyne; or, The Rosicrucian, A Romance', under the nom de plume 'A Gentleman of the University of Oxford', although Crowley may well have been aware of early uses of the 'Cambridge' version, including by the author of a history of toba … [Click Below for Full Description]

[LABOR HISTORY - ALABAMA] UMWA
Birmingham: 1898. First Edition. Possibly the earliest printed vestige of the United Mine Workers in Alabama. The UMWA has a rather complicated history in the deep south; the union suffered a powerful defeat, failing to win formal recognition among mine operators in its founding year (1890), and retreated from the region for most of the following decade. With the rising economic tide of 1897 the UMWA was able to re-establish itself; Alabama was established as the UMWA's District 20 in May of 1898 and Birmingham Local 423 was established a few months later. This Constitution, dated December 12-13, 1898, would thus appear to be the first of its kind in Alabama and one of the first in the deep south. Rare; OCLC gives no locations, nor do we locate any example of any Alabama-printed UMWA tracts preceding this one (the nearest competitor being the 1899 By-Laws of Birmingham Local 423, sold by us in 2017). 16mo (ca 14cm x 10cm). Staple-bound printed wrappers; 8pp. Mild external wear and soil; small losses to wrapper edges; Very Good. Signed in type at end of text by W.R. Fairley, President and I.L. Clemo, Secretary.

LABOR - STRIKE BREAKERS] PINKERTON NATIONAL DETECTIVE AGENCY
Pinkerton National Detective Agency, 1898. Complete report by Pinkerton agent "W.A.W.," assigned to gather information on a strike conducted by the workers at the Brainerd, Shaler & Hall Quarry Co. in Portland, Connecticut, outside of Middletown. The Pinkertons were hired by Frederick De Peyster, manager of the Quarry, presumably in the hopes of unearthing a violent conspiracy amongst the strikers. The strikers, led by one Andrew Hanson, had organized the Portland Brown Stone Quarry Men's Union in the wake of the strike, though "According to rumors the Union, if any exists, is very weak and lacking in cohesion," according to the spy's first report. However, despite the Union's embryonic state, the agent, passing off as a New York reporter, judges that "Their resolutions were drawn up in English and gave evidence of having been framed by some person of superior intelligence to the strikers." The rest of the report details the agent's ten days amongst the strikers, beginning with an exceedingly subdued meeting of the laborers (consisting "of Sweedish [sic], Irish and English members. The Sweeds [sic] are in the majority and evidently the leaders"). The strike, as described by W.A.W., was galvanized by an abrupt lay-off earlier that summer, followed by wage cuts, and broken promises made by the universally hated De Peyster, though the agent writes "It would be useless to report here the lamentations of the men...It was their side of the story." Throughout the ten days spent in Portland and Middletown, from July 29 to August 9, 1898, the agent's attempts to befriend the leader … [Click Below for Full Description]

Longpre, Paul de
NEW YORK, 1898 Published by FREDERICK A. STOKES COMPANY Binding: HARD BACK RED Size: 11X12 Overall Condition is: FAIR The title is printed on the front cover and spine in gold gilt lettering, beautiful color pictures. beautiful full page color illustrations of roses printed on plate copyright and Frederick Stokes 1898, wonderful Art Nouveau red cover design, signed AR, covers badly chipped, spine frayed and chipped at top/bottom, text is detached from boards but all contents present, inscription front end page for a Christmas gift to previous owner, browning to pages. Paul de Longpré (1855-1911), a French flower painter, worked mainly in the United States. He was born in Lyon, France, and was entirely self-taught. From his twelfth year he practiced successfully in Paris as a painter of fans. At 21 he first exhibited at the Salon. Having lost his money by the failure of a Paris bank, he moved in 1890 to New York and in 1896 held an exhibition of flower pieces which secured him instant recognition. In 1899 he moved to California and two years later built a beautiful house at Hollywood, which became celebrated for its magnificent flower gardens. De Longpré painted only perfect specimens of flowers; with delicacy of touch and with feeling for color he united scientific knowledge, and he also knew how to give expression to the subtle essence of the flowers. The finest of his paintings include Double Peach Blossoms and White Fringed Poppies (1902) - both widely known through popular reproductions.

Halbledereinbänden feines Exemplar. First Edition of this "extensive and valuable collection of illustrations in dermatology". GM Moriz Kaposi (1837-1902) ist als Moriz Kohn in Kaposvár (Ungarn) geboren. Seinen Namen ließ er (nach 1876) in KAPOSI ändern, nach dem kleinen Fluß Kapos, der durch seine Geburtsstadt fließt (RÀCZ). Später war Moriz Kaposi als Nachfolger und Schwiegersohn von Ferdinand von Hebra Professor der Universität Wien und Vorstand der Wiener Universitäts-Hautklinik. Er war Präsident des II. internationalen Dermatologenkongresses 1892 in Wien. Zu seinem Buch schreibt er "Mit diesem Handatlas der Hautkrankheiten wünsche ich den Studierenden einen Lernbehelf, den praktischen Ärzten aber ein Vergleichs- und Controlobject bei der Diagnose der Hautkrankheiten zu bieten ... Es müssen in dem Handatlas nicht nur alle vulgären und auch seltenen Krankheitsformen enthalten sein, sondern auch in allen Modificationen dargestellt erscheinen, welche viele wichtigste derselben nach Localisation, Ausbreitung, Entwicklungs- und Rückbildungsphasen darbieten." "Unsere Wiener dermatologische Klinik besitzt eine Lehrmittelsammlung von coloristischen Original-Aquarellen, welche von Ferdinand Hebra angelegt, nun bis auf nahezu 1000 Tafeln angewachsen ist und zum größten Theil von Elfingers und Karl Heitzmanns Meisterhand, in ihren jüngeren Exemplaren von mehreren anderen tüchtigen Künstler herrüh … [Click Below for Full Description]

Benjamin Tucker Tanner (December 25, 1835 - January 14, 1923) was an African American clergyman and editor. He served as a Bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church from 1886, and founded the Christian Recorder (see Early American Methodist newspapers), an important early African American newspaper. He was born to Hugh and Isabella Tanner in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He studied for five years at Avery College, paying his expenses by working as a barber.[1] As a student in Pittsburgh, his classmates included Jeremiah A. Brown, Thomas Morris Chester, and James T. Bradford.[2] He then studied for three years at Western Theological Seminary. At twenty five he was appointed to Sacramento by Bishop Daniel A. Payne, but he could not afford to go, so he moved to Washington, D. C. where he organized a Sunday School for freed slaves in the Navy Yard with the permission of Admiral John A. Dahlgren. In 1863 he became pastor of a church in Georgetown. In 1866 he moved to a large church in Baltimore. Shortly later he was appointed principal of the Annual Conference School at Fredericktown, Maryland, and he organized a common school under the auspices of the Freedmen's Bureau.

LABOR HISTORY - ALABAMA] UMWA
Birmingham: 1898. Possibly the earliest printed vestige of the United Mine Workers in Alabama. The UMWA has a rather complicated history in the deep south; the union suffered a powerful defeat, failing to win formal recognition among mine operators in its founding year (1890), and retreated from the region for most of the following decade. With the rising economic tide of 1897 the UMWA was able to re-establish itself; Alabama was established as the UMWA's District 20 in May of 1898 and Birmingham Local 423 was established a few months later. This Constitution, dated December 12-13, 1898, would thus appear to be the first of its kind in Alabama and one of the first in the deep south. Rare; OCLC gives no locations, nor do we locate any example of any Alabama-printed UMWA tracts preceding this one (the nearest competitor being the 1899 By-Laws of Birmingham Local 423, sold by us in 2017). 16mo (ca 14cm x 10cm). Staple-bound printed wrappers; 8pp. Mild external wear and soil; small losses to wrapper edges; Very Good. Signed in type at end of text by W.R. Fairley, President and I.L. Clemo, Secretary.

LABOR - STRIKE BREAKERS] PINKERTON NATIONAL DETECTIVE AGENCY
Pinkerton National Detective Agency, New York, 1898. Complete report by Pinkerton agent "W.A.W.," assigned to gather information on a strike conducted by the workers at the Brainerd, Shaler & Hall Quarry Co. in Portland, Connecticut, outside of Middletown. The Pinkertons were hired by Frederick De Peyster, manager of the Quarry, presumably in the hopes of unearthing a violent conspiracy amongst the strikers. The strikers, led by one Andrew Hanson, had organized the Portland Brown Stone Quarry Men's Union in the wake of the strike, though "According to rumors the Union, if any exists, is very weak and lacking in cohesion," according to the spy's first report. However, despite the Union's embryonic state, the agent, passing off as a New York reporter, judges that "Their resolutions were drawn up in English and gave evidence of having been framed by some person of superior intelligence to the strikers." The rest of the report details the agent's ten days amongst the strikers, beginning with an exceedingly subdued meeting of the laborers (consisting "of Sweedish [sic], Irish and English members. The Sweeds [sic] are in the majority and evidently the leaders"). The strike, as described by W.A.W., was galvanized by an abrupt lay-off earlier that summer, followed by wage cuts, and broken promises made by the universally hated De Peyster, though the agent writes "It would be useless to report here the lamentations of the men.It was their side of the story." Throughout the ten days spent in Portland and Middletown, from July 29 to August 9, 1898, the agent's attempts to befriend the … [Click Below for Full Description]

WELLS, H. G.
London: Heinemann, 1898. FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM, FIRST ISSUE, with the 16 page publisher s catalogue dated Autumn 187 headed by New Letters of Napoleon I (later issues usually contain a 32pp undated catalogue with Illumination or a 32pp catalogue led by Conrad s Nigger of the Narcissus). The War of the Worlds, the great classic of interplanetary invasion (Bleiler), ensured the author s place as a father of science fiction. Wells s scientific romances (as they came to be called) remain unsurpassed for their imagination and visionary power (ODNB). This immensely popular Victorian novel presented a dark view of natural selection, showing the benefits the ancient Martian civilization had reaped through millennia of evolution. At the same time, it offered a critique of colonialism and imperialism. In the first chapter Wells warns, And before we judge them [the Martians] too harshly, we must remember what ruthless and utter destruction our own species has wrought, not only upon animals, such as the vanished Bison and Dodo, but upon its own inferior races. The Tasmanians, in spite of their human likeness, were entirely swept out of existence in a war of extermination waged by European immigrants, in the space of fifty years. Are we such apostles of mercy as to complain if the Martians warred in the same spirit? The War of the Worlds has spawned countless imitations and parodies as well as adaptations for stage, screen, and radio, most famously Orson Welles s radio broadcast of 1938, taken by credulous listeners to present real events as they happened.
