        White Stains : The Literary Remains of George Archibald Bishop, A Neuropath of the Second Empire.

      Amsterdam: Leonard Smithers, 1898. Small 4to, pp. 131. Printed on Van Gelder handmade paper. Uncut in original cream wrappers. Upper wrapper detached, large 'W' to upper wrapper, wrappers sunned, extremities rubbed, light scattered foxing to margins. Housed in a custom-made clamshell box. First edition. 100 copies. This copy out of series and in original wrappers. Perhaps a unique proof copy of the rarest and certainly the most outspokenly erotic of all 1890s decadent verse. The total print run consisted of one hundred numbered copies, bound in black cloth with white lettering. THIS IS THE ONLY KNOWN COPY IN WRAPPERS, and that it is unnumbered suggests that it may be a trial copy run off by the Amsterdam printers, probably Roeloffzen-Hubner & Van Santen, for Leonard Smithers, the clandestine London publisher acting for Crowley. White Stains is ascribed by its anonymous 'editor' to George Archibald Bishop, named for Tom Bond Bishop, Crowley's pious Plymouth Brother uncle and guardian. Crowley once said of Bishop that 'no more cruel fanatic, no meaner villain, ever walked the earth.' Of White Stains, Crowley wrote that it is 'commonly quoted by my admirers as evidence of my addiction to every kind of unmentionable vice. Asses! It is, indeed, technically an obscene book, and yet the fact that I wrote it proves the purity of my heart and mind in the most extraordinary fashion.' Timothy d'Arch Smith tells us that, according to George Raffalovich, joint editor of Crowley's periodical The Equinox [1909-1919], the poem in this collection called With Dog and Dame is not by Crowley, but is a translation of a French poem whose author is unknown. The rarest issue of one of Crowley's rarer titles. Fabulous.

        contribute 'Real Ghost Stories' to 'PEARSON'S MAGAZINE' An Illustrated Monthly, in original cloth binding.

      London: Geo. Newnes, 1898-9., 1898. Octavo. Vols. V and VII, complete. Uniformly bound in publisher's pictorial khaki cloth stamped in gilt, green and brown. Some light, expected wear but essentially clean copies wioth a little spine toning to the earlier volume. Contains the scarce first appearance of 'Real Ghost Stories' by Flaxman Low accompanied by 75 illustrations; only 12 were published in the book-form edition of 1899 (a copy of which sold for £1900 at auction in 1999). Also features stories by George Griffith, Max Pemberton, Baroness Orczy, C.C. Hyne (Capt. Kettle), Victor Whitechurch (a train mystery of course), Frank Aubrey (an uncollected fantasy), plus the usual period articles on ballooning, railways, trave and other pastimes and technologies (Ocean cables etc.). Perhaps of greatest interest to some is the Nikola Tesla interview wherein is mentioned the development of Solar Cells, Television, Broadcast Power, Radio Controlled Torpedos, etc. Tesla was the inventive genius who at one time worked hand in hand with Edison as his peer.

        An Alphabet.

      Heinemann, London. 1898 - First edition. The ''Library Edition'' with the tipped-in colour lithographic title-page and twenty-six plates printed on laid paper and bound in full pictorial oatmeal cloth, all edges gilt. Folio. The Alphabet was also issued in two other versions: a de luxe edition of about 50 copies printed from the blocks and coloured by hand; a popular edition with the plates printed on cartridge paper and bound in cloth-backed boards. This is the first of the five picture books that Nicholson published with Heinemann. The first image, ''A was an Artist'', is a self portrait, while the second, ''B for Beggar'', is a portrait of James Pryde with whom Nicholson developed a striking poster style under the name the Beggarstaff Brothers. Two of the plates differ from those in the de luxe edition, as it was thought that ''E is for Executioner'' and ''T is for Toper'' might not be suitable for younger eyes; here they have become ''E is for Earl'' and ''T for Trumpeter''.Covers rubbed at the corners. Spine tanned and scuffed, heavily in places. Very good. The plates are fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Northward over the "Great Ice" is the record of Peary's Arctic expeditions up to 1897, whose achievements included the determination of the northernmost extension of the ice cap and the insularity of Greenland, together with the gathering of a mass of scientific and ethnographic data. 'As a result of his experiences Peary had come to the conclusion that the only practicable means for reaching the North Pole consisted in pushing a ship as far northward as possible to a winter harbor on the Greenland coast, and then early in spring traveling with dogs and sledges due north until the Pole was attained' (DAB). Peary's ventures are also remarkable among exploring voyages for the active involvement of their leader's wife, who was the first Caucasian woman to winter with an Arctic expedition and gave birth to a girl farther north than any other Caucasian child had been born before.'Born in 1856, into a family of New England merchants, Robert Edwin Peary was undoubtedly the most driven, possibly the most successful, and probably the most unpleasant man in the annals of polar exploration' (Fleming, Ninety Degrees North (London: 2001), p. 284). His method of exploration advocated the use of a small team of explorers adopting as far as possible the survival skills of the native Eskimos. 'When he went travelling he carried no tent but built igloos instead; where the English wore cotton and wool, and the Scandinavians dressed in Iceland sweaters and windcheaters, Peary wore Eskimo furs; where others struggled with sleeping bags, Peary slept Eskimo-style in the clothes he wore. In return, Peary trained the Eskimos in what he proudly called the "Peary System" of exploration, which consisted of three separate parties: the first to prepare the ground and build shelters at designated resting places; the second to haul caches of food in their wake; and the third, the polar group, which would follow behind, carrying a minimum of supplies so that they would be fresh for the big push [.] A similar system of tripartite sledge travelling had been employed by the British during the Franklin rescue missions forty years before. But if Peary could claim credit for none of the individual details he was the first to bring them together, combining European and Eskimo techniques to produce the most efficient method of travelling long distances in the Arctic' (Fleming, op. cit., p. 295).NMM I, 980; for the US ed., cf.

        Histoire du livre Les émaux byzantins, [collection de] A.W. Zwenigorodskoï.

      Saint Petersburg, [s.n.], 1898. 31 x 21 cm. White cloth, very richly gilt and decorated with depictions of enamels and gem-studded jewels. All edges decorated in red and gold. (6), 252 p., 6 plates (two chromolithographies, one with additional gold; three wood engraved pictures, and an engraving on Imperial Japanese paper by W.W. Matthé after a drawing by Alexander P. Bogolioubow), (2) p. Gilt and blue endpapers. Printed in 100 numbered copies, but this copy not numbered. First edition. Perfectly preserved.* This rare and curious book, very luxuriously produced, was published out of sheer admiration for the sumptuous description of the Russian Prince Alexander Zvenigorodsky's collection of priceless antique enamels, that was sent to high-placed individuals in many countries of the world. In fact, this book mainly consists of verbatim reactions and letters-of-thanks for Zwenigorodsky's volume by (noble secretaries of) granddukes, princes and queens and their ministers, museum directors and state librarians.

        Organ der Vereinigung Bildender Kunstler Osterreichs.

      Vienna, Gerlach & Schenk, 1898.12 fascicoli: 30 pp., 2 cc. (di dimensione diversa con indicazioni pubblicitarie) ? 28 pp., 2 cc. ?Der Kunstschatz? ? 24 pp. ? 30 pp. ? 60 pp. ? 32 pp. (? presente anche un cartiglio a stampa firmato Klimt ad inizio del fascicolo), 36 pp. (? presente anche un bifolio pubblicitario non rilegato) ? 28 pp. ? 32 pp., 2 cc. ? 24 pp., 1 c. ? 24 pp. - 36 pp. Illustrazioni, foto, incisioni a colori e in bianco e nero, musica notata lungo il testo. I 12 numeri presentano le originali copertine editoriali a stampa e sono raccolti nella cartella editoriale in mezza tela (fascette di chiusura rinnovate, rinforzi ai dorsi di un paio di numeri). La rivista venne pubblicata il primo anno con cadenza mensile (tranne che per maggio - giugno, bimestrale). Il dodicesimo fascicolo ? un numero speciale. Prima edizione della prima annata completa di Ver sacrum, periodico che fu organo ufficiale di stampa della Secessione viennese, fondato da Gustav Klimt e Max Kurzweil. L?annata comprende 12 fascicoli, pubblicati nel corso del 1898, e fu stampata in soli 500 esemplari. ?Ver sacrum? (primavera sacra), pubblicato a Vienna fra il 1898 e il 1903, costituisce lo spazio di diffusione dei manifesti poetici e artistici dei secessionisti austriaci: nel primo numero del 1ø gennaio 1898, presentato in occasione della prima Mostra della Secessione, Hermann Bahr (1863 - 1934) ne sintetizz? cos? i propositi: "Siamo intenzionati a portare l'arte straniera a Vienna, perch? possano trovare stimolo e motivazione non solo artisti, studiosi e collezionisti, ma anche il grande pubblico particolarmente sensibile all'arte, educandolo ad appropriarsi del senso estetico che ? presente allo stato di istinto in ogni uomo, indirizzandolo alla bellezza e alla libert... di pensare e sentire". La rivista stessa, riccamente illustrata da quelle che diventeranno immagini - simbolo dell?arte del primo Novecento in Europa e nel mondo, si presenta come una sintesi delle istanze e dello stile dei secessionisti: "Chi prendeva in mano per la prima volta la rivista si rendeva conto di trovarsi di fronte ad un'impostazione nuovissima: innanzitutto il formato, quadrato, quell'immagine geometrica che diventer... la caratteristica della grafica di Josef Hoffmann e il formato prediletto dei quadri di Gustav Klimt. Quindi il carattere di "Gesamtkunstwerk" - opera d'arte totale - che distingueva radicalmente "Ver Sacrum" da tutte le altre riviste. Ogni numero doveva essere un'opera d'arte completa, compiuta in s? che rappresentasse la concezione secessionista dell'Associazione. La stessa impostazione artistica globale doveva mirare a un ideale superiore. Dal pi?" piccolo decoro, ai colori, ai caratteri tipografici, alle illustrazioni, al testo, il tutto doveva riflettere l'idea collettiva, interpretato di volta in volta da un comitato di redazione formato da artisti e letterati sempre diversi" (Bressan - De Grassi). All'interno dei fascicoli si trovano illustrazioni, disegni, litografie, e xilografie realizzati appositamente dai principali interpreti del movimento artistico quali Gustav Klimt (cop. dei fasc. 3 e 6), Karl Moll, Koloman Moser, Charles Mackintosh, Herman Bahr, Otto Wagner, Joseph Olbrich, Alfred Roller, Adolf Bohm, Joseph Enegelhart, Max Klinger, Joseph Hoffmann e altri.
