        THE KLONDYKE NUGGET. By S.F. Cody

      Belfast, Ireland: David Allen & Sons, 1898. Chromolithographic poster, 20 x 30 inches. Losses and tears along bottom edge, not affecting image; several small tears at other edges. Some light soiling. Image bright and fresh. Promotional flyer for a local theatre pasted to right edge. Good plus. A rare poster for the popular stage play, THE KLONDYKE NUGGET, written and performed by S.F. Cody throughout the British Isles at the end of the 19th century. Samuel Franklin Cody (1867-1913) was a unique figure in late Victorian Anglo-American popular entertainment. Born Samuel Franklin Cowdery, he later changed his surname to capitalize on the fame of Buffalo Bill Cody, even mimicking Buffalo Bill's clothing and facial hair style. Born in Texas, S.F. Cody trained in the Forepaugh Wild West Show and found much of his fame in England. He is renowned in the history of aviation as the first man to conduct a powered flight in England, and he developed large kites that were used for artillery spotting during World War I. Cody's life was filled with tall tales (though some of them are perhaps true), including his claim that he prospected for gold in Dawson City during the Klondike Gold Rush. That story set the groundwork for the theatrical play advertised herein, where Cody plays the role of George Exelby; Lela Cody, his (common law) second wife, plays the part of Rosie; and her son, Edward LeRoy, plays Joe Smith. The poster shows Cody at the center, surrounded by an angry mob wielding guns. To the left are four other figures, including Lela and an Indian on horseback. An advertisement for the Clarence Theatre in Pontypridd is pasted to the right side of the sheet, dated Monday, Dec. 19, indicating that the play runs through the week.

        THE OPEN BOAT AND OTHER TALES OF ADVENTURE .

      Doubleday & McClure Co., New York 1898 - Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-2] 3-336, original pictorial green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in dark green and silver. Crane's best collection of short fiction, including several of his most powerful and best known stories. "The Open Boat," one of Crane's finest short stories, "was based upon his own experiences on his way to Cuba as a correspondent during the filibustering expeditions preceding the Cuban War. The emotions and reactions of four men in an open boat after a wreck are given with an insight and a fidelity to fact that makes the story memorable." - Quinn, American Fiction, p. 536. The collection also contains several tales based on Crane's western trip in 1895 to Mexico via Nebraska, Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas, including his archetypal "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky," in which the mythical Old West yields to the reality of civilization. The fine "Death and the Child," a war story set during the Turko-Greek War in 1897, is "clearly a version of THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE, which it resembles in the incident of panicky flight, in its implication of nature in a drama of self discovery, and in its imagery of the psychological distress that motivates the hero. But it is also like "The Open Boat" in that its protagonist is in a measure -- up to the moment of panic -- introspective and contemplative." - James B. Colvert, "Stephen Crane," DLB 12 (1982), p. 122. BAL 4079 (noted spine imprint B, no priority established). Wright (III) 1256. Previous owner's name and date (1898) in ink to front free endpaper, a little rubbing to silver stamping of spine and a touch of shelf wear, a fine copy.

        China. No. 1 (1899) Correspondence Respecting the Affairs of China.

      London.: HMSO.. March1899.. xxiv + 360pp. Attractively bound in light blue paper covered boards with contrasting dark blue cloth spine. A very good copy. 31 x 21cm. Styled "Correspondence respecting the Affairs of China", these important and voluminous papers relate mainly to events in 1898. They consist of 473 items, many with several enclosures, in 360 pages with a convenient xxiii page table of contents. Prepared for the information of both Houses of the British Parliament, the Papers comprise the despatches and telegrams exchanged between the British Minister in Peking and the Marquis of Salisbury who, as Britain’s Prime Minister, was also the Foreign Minister of the day. Together with miscellaneous enclosures, the papers show China under stress from the commercial and political pressures being exerted by the Great Powers in the years after the Sino-Japanese War of 1894-95. They also shed light on the developing internal and external crisis in the affairs of China which culminated in the "Boxer" anti-foreign uprising in 1899-1900 which led to the armed intervention of the Great Powers and the occupation of Peking. China’s problems were real and many, and the gentlemanly veneer of diplomatic language seen in the papers could scarcely hide the greed and aggression of the Powers. Urged on by powerful commercial interests and ambitious politicians in their home countries, the diplomats jostled each other in the rush to extract as much as they could from a weak and divided China. These are the underlying themes that appear throughout these papers. Among the issues of the day, the papers touch on the cession of Port Arthur and Talienwan to Russia, the German occupation of Kiao-chau (Tsingtau), the leases of Weihaiwei and Hong Kong’s "New Territory" to Britain, and of Kwangchauwan to France. The extension of treaty ports and foreign concessions, and of "zones of interest" like that of Britain in the Yangtse Valley and of Germany in Shantung, also feature prominently. There are, besides, informative reports on the progress of the epic “Hundred Days Reform” movement and the coup by which the Empress Dowager was restored to power, as well as on the leading reformer Kang Yuwei, whose flight was assisted by the British authorities. Translations from imperial edicts serve to heighten the drama. These were crowded and, for the Qing Court and government, fearful and anxious times. The Correspondence is basic to an understanding of the period leading up to the dramatic events of 1900, and still makes good, and often gripping, reading today. .

        Mission Pavie Indo-Chine 1879-1895. Géographie et voyages. I. Exposé des travaux de la mission (Introducton, première et deuxième périodes = 1879 à 1889).

      Paris, Ernest Leroux [text volumes]; Augustin Challamel [atlas], 1898-1919. Ten volumes in 11 (ten text volumes and one atlas). Large 4to. (28.0 x 22.0 cm). Title pages, 3981 pp., 64 maps, 121 plates of which 33 in full colour; about 700 text figures. All original printed wrappers bound in. Uniform early 20th century half calf over marbled boards. Spines with four raised bands and gilt titles.= The complete results of the exploration of French Indo-China by Auguste Pavie. "Auguste Jean-Marie Pavie (1847-1925) was a French colonial civil servant, explorer and diplomat who was instrumental in establishing French control over Laos in the last two decades of the 19th century. After a long career in Cambodia and Cochinchina, Pavie became the first French vice-consul in Luang Prabang in 1885, eventually becoming the first Governor-General and plenipotentiary minister of the newly formed French colony of Laos" (Wikipedia). The work is separated into three parts: 'Various studies' ('Études diverses'), in three volumes, including one on the zoology of the area with contributions by several experts and with many new species that are often splendidly illustrated; 'Géographie et voyages', in seven volumes, with many fine maps, and an atlas with another ten large scale maps. Except for the atlas, all volumes are richly illustrated in the text, mainly with photos, a few volumes more dominantly with engravings. The first "études diverses" volume contains fine chromolithographs. Volume VII is very scarce. Another book-dealer states that "La presque totalité du tirage du volume VII a été détruite peu après son impression". A more detailed collation is as follows: Paris, Ernest Leroux, 1901. Géographie et voyages. I. Exposé des travaux de la mission (Introducton, première et deuxième périodes = 1879 à 1889). Frontispiece portrait, by F. Florian; [i] (errata), 1-333 pp., 137 text figures (photos). 1906. Géographie et voyages. II. Exposés des travaux de la mission (troisième et quatrièmes periodes = 1889 à 1895).

      1898. Oblongs small 8vo. 2 pp. To John Hays Hammond: "[...] I wish to goodness you could give me a small hint, as to how, with my pen, I could contrive to most good to Rhodes in his fight 'South under'.

I am as ever / Rudyard Kipling". - John Hays Hammond was an American mining engineer who worked for Cecil Rhodes. In 1896 he reported that there was no gold in Mashonaland or Matabeleland.

Kipling met him on board a ship leaving from Southampton. - On headed paper; the corners are rounded, but otherwise very fine; slightly browned. - From the collection of Diana Herzog.
