        SIX DRAWINGS Illustrating Théophile Gautiers Romance Mademoiselle de Maupin

      London: Leonard Smithers, 1898. First edition, LIMITED TO ONLY 50 HAND NUMBERED COPIES. Six photogravures "being reproductions of an uncompleted set of illustrations by the late Aubrey Beardsley to Mademoiselle de Maupin". Large Folio [15.3 by 11 inches approx.], loosely contained as issued in the original printed wrapper and portfolio of gray boards with green cloth back and corners, the upper board printed in red and black, with green silk ties. A nice set of this extremely scarce Beardsley item. The plates are all without wear, occasionally a few spots here or there caused by the paper stock, The wrapper is well preserved, the portfolio covers with some general age-wear, having served their purpose well. FIRST EDITION OF THIS EXTREMELY SCARCE SET OF PHOTOGRAVURES PUBLISHED POSTHUMOUSLY OF ARTWORK INTENDED FOR Mademoiselle de Maupin. In the autumn of 1897 Beardsley, increasingly desperate to see another book published similar to THE RAPE OF THE LOCK, set to work on illustrations for 'Mademoiselle de Maupin' with Leonard Smithers' approval. This precipitated something of a crisis in his relationship with the publisher. Smithers simply did not have the money for the project and dragged his heals while Beardsley, hurt by what he saw as a lack of faith by him, became increasingly depressed and began suffering pangs of paranoia over the project. Smithers then accused Beardsley of becoming tired with Maupin, which may have contributed to Beardsley anxiety over money and belief that his friend was not playing fair with him during his illness and planning to take his artwork and sell it for profit after his death. In only a few more months the artist would be dead and the "Maupin" project would never be completed.

        S/W Porträtfotographie. [ca. 22,5 x 17,4 cm].

      -, 0, [Prag?], - [Prag?], -, o. J. Mit hds. Bleistift-Titelei auf der Rückseite. - Nach einer Fotografenlehre im Atelier Antonin Mattas in Príbram von 1898 bis 1901 besuchte Drtikol, (1883 - 1961), von 1901 bis 1903 die Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt für Photographie in München (später umbenannt in Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Lichtbildwesen und ab 1990 in Staatliche Fachakademie für Fotodesign München). Nach dem Militärdienst 1907, betrieb er bis 1935 ein eigenes Studio, zunächst in Príbram, später in Prag. 1945/46 war Drtikol Professor an der Schule für Graphik in Prag. Schwerpunkt seiner Arbeit war die Aktphotographie. In seinen frühen Werken lässt sich der Einfluss des Prager Symbolismus und "Art Nouveau" erkennen. In den 1920er und 30er Jahren prägten Stummfilm, Avantgarde und Art Deco sein Schaffen. Noch vor dem 2. Weltkrieg gab František Drtikol die Photographie auf und widmete sich fortan der Malerei. Sein Ruhm schwand und er starb 1961 einsam und vergessen. Erst in jüngerer Zeit nimmt sein Werk wieder einen hohen Stellenwert in der Geschichte der tschechischen Photographie ein. (Zitat) Deutsch

        Real estate in Texas, in Part [manuscript title on verso of front endpaper].

      Ownership signature on front endpaper "Property of John E. Roller, Harrisonburg, VA." Harrisonburg, VA, Archer City, TX, and other locations, nd [ca. 1898]. 16mo. 120 numbered pages (of which 40 have been used for manuscript entries, in pencil and ink); approximately 3500 words. Roller (1844-1918), a native of Rockingham County, Virginia, entered the Virginia Military Institute in December, 1861, and graduated in July, 1863, entering Confederate army service immediately as second lieutenant, Company G, 2nd Confederate States Engineers, and serving to the end of the conflict with the Army of Northern Virginia. Following the war, he resided in Harrisonburg, Virginia, working as a lawyer, state legislator, and brigadier general in the Virginia state militia. Good copy, the manuscript quite legible. Cheap leather (spine completely eroded, as are edges and corners). (#6204) This neatly written journal, probably kept by one or more of Roller's agents in Texas, gives a detailed picture of his agricultural property in Knox County, the River Valley and Holliday Creek near Wichita Falls, and town lots in Archer City and Wichita Falls (in all, some 6000 acres). The journal provides a full description of each property, including access to water, railroad stations, churches, and schools, and in some cases titles to the land are traced. One of the farms "needs 300 lbs. of wire to repair and rebuild fence for the benefit and protection of the place; they are now building a wooden bridge 46 feet in length over Holliday Creek on the east line of this place — crops all in good condition — lands level." Information on the crops, trees, dwellings, and out-buildings are recorded; some properties had a good supply of pecan trees, some Mesquite trees were big enough for fence posts; some properties were leased to farmers who grew corn, wheat, and oats as cash crops. At the end of the journal, an agent has recorded a "to-do" list which includes a note to get "original contracts of tenants and take copies and send one to Gen. John E. Roller and retain one." In addition to various farm properties, Roller owned 30 town lots in Archer City. The agent was circumspect about them: "There can be little said about the Archer City lots, they are not fenced or marked but I had some of them located for me — some are located very well but others are too far out. Archer City is hoping for a Rail Road — if they get it their town will build up and your lots will be worth something. The County treasurer told me your lots were worth from ten to twenty five dollars a piece — I asked him if he would give that for them, he said no not now." (According to the Handbook of Texas, Archer City finally got its railroad in 1910.)

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1898. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and front cover gilt, vignette to front cover gilt, all edges gilt. Frontispiece with tissue-guard, 11 illustrations by E. Gertrude Thomson. Spine faded to brown, covers a little sunned, tips slightly worn. An excellent copy. First edition. A collection of poetry, including portions of Phantasmagoria (1869), and two poems from Sylvie and Bruno, which, the author notes in the introduction, are "books whose high price (made necessary by the great cost of production) has, I fear, put them out of the reach of most of my readers." Three Sunsets was priced 4s. It was issued in February 1898, the month after Dodgson's death. The preface, dated January 1898, is perhaps the last thing he wrote.

Most of the work was written by Wiggleworth" (Zimmer, p. 432). The fine color plates were painted by ornithologist Bruno Geisler who also collected the bird skins and made observations on the range and behavior of some species. In 1887, Bruno Geisler began collecting birds in Ceylon, Java and the Celebes (now Sulawesi) with his brother Herbert. In 1890, they moved to New Guinea. Their bird specimens and some ethnographic material were mainly sold to the then zoological-ethnological-anthropological museum in Dresden (now Staatliches Museum für Tierkunde and Museum of Ethnology Dresden). In 1893, Bruno Geisler became a curator and taxidermist in the Dresden museum. The bird skins collected by Bruno and Herbert were studied by author Adolf Bernard Meyer, a professor at the Dresden museum. See also Fine Bird Books (1990) 121, Nissen IVB 626, Casey Wood 461 and Ripley 192. Inscribed by the authors to British zoologist/ornithologist Richard Bowdler Sharpe in the top margin of the front wrapper of each volume, the inscription is dated 21. 6. 98 which may indicate the actual publication date of this work.

        Il Rinascimento delle ceramiche maiolicate in Faenza - Le ceramiche e maioliche faentine dalla loro origine fino al principio del secolo XVI. Appunti storici documentati con XX tavole di stoviglie antiche

      Tipografia - Litografia G. Montanari 1898 - 1889, Faenza - 2 voll., di cui uno di testo in-4° (362x258mm) e uno iconografico in-folio oblungo (332x528mm), in legatura posteriore in t. tela con riporto ai piatti delle brossure originali illustrate in litografia a colori (il volume di testo presenta un'illustrazione di Piancastelli con una figura di giovinetto seduta fra ceramiche faentine; quello di atlante iconografico la figura di un vaso faentino). Il volume di testo, constante di pp. (8), 327, (1), è preceduto da 4 tavole litografiche seppiate raffiguranti 7 tra vasi greco-siculi, coppe romane e patere etrusche rinvenute presso Faenza e nelle Puglie. Fregi tipografici n.t. in rosso e in nero, numerose figure n.t. Il volume di atlante consta di 40 superbe tavole cromolitografiche raffiguranti 193 esempi di ceramiche maiolicate delle manifatture faentine (il tutto su disegno e coloritura dell'autore medesimo) ma presenta la peculiarità di essere preceduto da altre 20 tavole cromolitografiche raffigutanti stoviglie antiche del territorio faentino, disegnate e colorite dal vero dallo stesso Argnani e costituenti il corpus iconografico di una sua complementare e precedente opera, Le ceramiche e maioliche faentine dalla loro origine fino al principio del secolo XVI. Appunti storici. documentati con XX tavole di stoviglie antiche (Faenza, Montanari, 1889); il testo del volume in questione (in-4°, pp. XII, 83, tiratura di soli 285 esemplari numerati; la nostra copia è tuttavia priva di numerazione) è allegato, sciolto, al nostro esemplare. Fioriture e bruniture consute. Bell'esemplare in parte intonso. Prima edizione, rara, tirata a sole 500 copie numerate (n° 386), di questa imponente e imprescindibile opera sulle maioliche faentine sparse per l'Italia con indagini effettuate nelle città di Bologna, Ferrara, Padova, Venezia, Mantova, Parma, Modena, Firenze, Arezzo, Perugia, Pesaro, Ravenna, Forlì, Fano, Ancona, Fabriano, Gubbio, Arezzo. dove taluni artisti maiolicari di Faenza trasportarono l'industria delle ceramiche. al fine di discernere con sicurezza le stoviglie lavorate in Faenza da quelle lavorate in città dove quest'Arte venne qui importata, come riassume il contenuto dell'opera lo stesso Argnani. L'appendice di documenti inediti è a cura di Carlo Malagola. La precedente opera del 1889 qui allegata sciolta è anch'essa di considerevole importanza; in essa l'Argnani si prefisse di dimostrare l'antichità delle ceramiche faentine, di esporre la grande scoperta della vernice stagnifera sullo scorcio del XIV secolo e di provare l'esistenza della fabbrica Ca' Fagioli di Faenza. L'Argnani (Faenza, 1822-ivi, 1905), storico dell'arte ceramistica, ceramista e litografo, fu conservatore della Pinacoteca Comunale di Faenza e socio corrispondente della Regia Deputazione di Storia Patria delle Provincie di Romagna.

        REPORT OF THE GOVERNOR OF THE DISTRICT OF ALASKA TO THE SECRETARY OF THE SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR 1898

      Government Printing Office, 1898., 1898. First edition. 8vo. Salmon-colored printed wrappers, 49 pp., map. Large portion of the report deals with more effectually carrying out the law prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors in Alaska. Mention is made of a tribe on the Admiralty Island known as the "Hoochinoos" who used to smuggle to the soldiers at Sitka a beverage known as "hoochinoo" and "hooch." "Hooch" was made from a mash of black molasses imported from the Hawaiian Islands. Smuggling and the control of smugglers is of great concern to the law as well as effectively enforcing the laws to protect both saloon keepers and the citizens. The governor further reports on criminal and penal laws, land laws, population, taxable property, agricultural development, stock raising, reindeer, fur seals, sea otters, mining, etc. Disasters are included in the report with the mention of the schooner Lady Jane Grey that went down off Cape Flattery with only a few saved. A map of the longitudinal section of workings of the Alaska/Mexican Gold Mine is also present. A fine, clean copy. WICKERSHAM 227.

        Jeu de l'Affaire Dreyfus et de la Verite

      1898 - (Dreyfus, Alfred). Jeu de l’Affaire Dreyfus et de la Vérité. Sceaux: E. Charaire, [circa 1898]. Folding cloth-hinged stiff boards, mounted with illustrated chromolithographic game surface. Measures 23-3/4 by 16-3/4 inches opened. $3000.Original game board, with game-squares containing portraits of the principal characters in the Dreyfus scandal, including Émile Zola, whose famous protest in the form of an open newspaper letter entitled “J’Accuse” contributed to Dreyfus’ eventual pardon and release.Dreyfus’ court-martial, conviction, and final acquittal “developed into a political event which had repercussions throughout France and the Jewish world” (Bredin), and exposed anti-Semitism that was rampant in the French military. Dreyfus was accused in 1894 of attempting to transmit a secret military document to the military attaché of the German embassy in Paris, the charges against him stemming from anti-Semitism. Arrested and tried before a court-martial, Dreyfus was found guilty of treason, sentenced to life imprisonment and exiled to Devil’s Island. Public outcry led to the discovery of suppressed exculpatory evidence, a retrial and eventual pardon. “The Dreyfus affair made a strong impact on the outlook of world Jewry and the atmosphere in their respective countries. Jews everywhere were shocked that the affair could take place in France, the ‘homeland of liberty and the Great Revolution,’ and that hatred of the Jews could still prejudice the behavior of a considerable part of the French people, in particular when the Jewish victim was completely assimilated. This seemed to prove clearly that assimilation was no defense against anti-Semitism” (Encyclopedia Judaica 6, 228). Without game pieces and dice. Only the lightest soiling to board surface, fragment of ribbon tie still in place. An extraordinary surviving artifact in near-fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
