A rare 1898 pamphlet with much information on the Yukon- Klondike and Alaska gold fields.

It provided a wide range of information for the gold seeker, including what and how to pack, the regulations on transportation, the diggings, and Canadian duties. Topic headings include "Packing from Dyea Over Chilcoot Pass," "Rate for Packing - Dyea to Summit," "New Map of Alaska," "Outfit for a Woman," "A Lecture by Bishop Rowe of Alaska on the Yukon-Klondike Gold Field and How to Reach Same," among others. Rare, with no copies in OCLC.

        The Psychology of Suggestion: A Research into Subconscious Nature of Man and Society. With an Introduction by Professor William James, of Harvard Universitiy

      NY: D. Appleton and Company 1898 - Spine rebacked in modern red cloth. 3/4 binding over marbled boards. x, 386 pages illustrations, plates. Hardcover. Good binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages. "First edition of Sidis's first book. Sidis arrived in America from Russia in 1887 "a friendless and almost penniless immigrant," (H. Addington Bruce, "Boris Sidis - an Appreciation," The Journal of Abnormal Psychology and Social Psychology, Apr. 1923) he was accepted at Harvard graduating in 1894, and attracting the interest of William James. James encouraged him to specialize in psychology and in 1897 he received his PhD. He subsequently did important work at New York State Psychopathic Institute, developing his method of hypnoidization, "and effecting impressive cures in cases of functional nervous and mental disorder." In 1904 he set up in private practice in psychotherapy at Brookline, Massachusetts, whilst continuing his experimental work, being "one of the first to undertake really scientific exploration of the subconscious region of the mind," and in 1909 he established a sanatorium for the treatment of nervous afflictions in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Bruce considers him to have been a "notable figure," and one who would be increasingly recognized for his contribution to the "larger knowledge now possessed regarding the nature and possibilities of the human personality." This is indirectly true, in that Sidis is probably best remembered now as the father of the prodigious William James Sidis." - Peter Harrington. Subjects: Mental suggestion. Suggestion.

        IN QUEST OF LIFE; OR, THE REVELATIONS OF THE WIYATATAO OF XIPANTL. THE LAST HIGH PRIEST OF THE AZTECS.

      London, New York: F. Tennyson Neely, Publisher, [1898] - Octavo, pp. [i-iii] iv [v] vi-ix [x] [11] 12-363 [364] [365-368: ads], three inserted plates, including frontispiece (photographic portrait of the author), original gray-green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and silver. First edition. "This eccentric American lost-race fantasy, while presenting a confused and sometimes turgid appearance to the casual reader, has, hidden away in its pages like dormant magma, some of the most bizarre and controversial conceptions of its period. The story posits the former existence of a tribe of Toltecs in the American Southwest who practiced human sacrifice, and from whose altar dripped blood and gore that sank down into the ground and mingled with an underground stream to produce a liquid that acted as an elixir vitae (thus, technically, making this a kind of vampire story). In one scene, the high priest takes refuge from an earthquake in the cavern through which this stream flows, but, in trying to bring his young bride along with him, she suffers an accident that cuts her torso in two. The priest rescues the lower half, impregnates it and, by steeping it in the elixir stream for nine months, ensures the vitality of the fetus and the eventual birth of his heir." - Robert Eldridge. Reginald 15423. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Bookplate of Stuart A. Teitler (a noted collector of lost race fiction) affixed to front paste-down. Cloth lightly rubbed at spine ends and corner tips, two short closed tears in title leaf, a very good copy with clean and bright covers. A notably rare book.

Er vertrat die These, es gebe geborene Verbrecher, die durch körperliche und psychische Merkmale zu erkennen seien. Abstehende Ohren, zusammengewachsene Augenbrauen, schmale Lippen und hervorstehende Eckzähne waren für ihn u. a. Erkennungszeichen krimineller Neigungen. Europaweit lieferten Lombrosos umstrittene Theorien den Anstoß für wissenschaftliche Debatten über die Ursachen des Verbrechens. (vlg. dazu Brockhaus, 19. Aufl. XIII, 509).

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War

      London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1898. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is a superior, collector-grade copy of Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. This copy comes to us from the collection of Oscar-winning actor and director Lord Richard Samuel Attenborough (1923-2014). When this book was written and published, Churchill was a young cavalry officer still serving in India. While he had successfully applied his pen as a war correspondent - indeed the book is based on his dispatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail - this was his first book-length work. The young Churchill was motivated by a combination of pique and ambition. He was vexed that his Daily Telegraph columns were to be published unsigned. On 25 October 1897 Churchill wrote to his mother: "...I had written them with the design... of bringing my personality before the electorate." Two weeks later, his resolve to write a book firming, Churchill again wrote to his mother: "...It is a great undertaking but if carried out will yield substantial results in every way, financially, politically, and even, though do I care a damn, militarily." Having invested his ambition in this first book, he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." The finished manuscript was sent to his mother on the last day of 1897 and published on 14 March of 1898. Publication was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. Home Issue copies also bear a 32-page Longmans, Green catalogue bound in at the back, which is dated either "12/97" or "3/98" at the foot of page 32. With only a little more than 1,900 copies bound, this first edition of Churchill's first book is both desirable and elusive in collector worthy condition. Here is such a copy, the first edition, only printing, first state in condition approaching near fine. The green cloth binding remains square and tight with strong color and vivid gilt. We note no color shift to the spine, which has excellent shelf presentation. We note light overall soiling and minor wear is confined to spine ends, corners, and hinges. The contents are very good for the edition. The original black endpapers are intact, with no splits or cracking. All maps are intact, including the folding maps at pages 1 and 146, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard. First state is confirmed by the absence of an errata slip and a rear catalogue dated “12/97”. Spotting is moderate for the edition, occasional and intermittent throughout and visible on the page edges. We find a gift inscription on the front free endpaper: “Ogilvie Graham | from | his “Uncle Charlie” | July 1898” and “R. A. Wilson” ink stamped to the upper blank upper margin of the first page of the Preface. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.1.a, Woods/ICS A1(aa), Langworth p.12.

        Roses Facsimiles of Watercolors

      FREDERICK A. STOKES COMPANY, NEW YORK 1898 - 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.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War

      London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1898. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is a collector worthy copy of the first edition of Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. When this book was written and published, Churchill was a young cavalry officer still serving in India. While he had successfully applied his pen as a war correspondent - indeed the book is based on his dispatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail - this was his first book-length work. The young Churchill was motivated by a combination of pique and ambition. He was vexed that his Daily Telegraph columns were to be published unsigned. On 25 October 1897 Churchill wrote to his mother: "...I had written them with the design... of bringing my personality before the electorate." Two weeks later, his resolve to write a book firming, Churchill again wrote to his mother: "...It is a great undertaking but if carried out will yield substantial results in every way, financially, politically, and even, though do I care a damn, militarily." Having invested his ambition in this first book, he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." The finished manuscript was sent to his mother on the last day of 1897 and published on 14 March of 1898. Publication was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. Home Issue copies also bear a 32-page Longmans, Green catalogue bound in at the back, which is dated either "12/97" or "3/98" at the foot of page 32. With only a little more than 1,900 copies bound, this first edition of Churchill's first book is both desirable and elusive in collector worthy condition. Here is a superior copy, notable both for condition and bibliographic interest. As noted by ChurchillÂ’s bibliographer Ronald Cohen, second state copies of the first edition typically contain a rear catalogue dated “3/98”. However, Cohen notes having seen two second state copies with rear catalogues dated “12/97” and concludes that with these early second state copies - “12/97 catalogues were used until the supply was exhausted, and 3/98 catalogues were employed thereafter.” Here is one such early second state copy, with both the errata slip and a rear catalogue dated “12/97”. (See Cohen, Vol. I, p.10.) We conservatively grade overall condition of this copy as very good plus. The green cloth binding remains square and tight with strong color, bright gilt, and square corners. We note mild spine toning, with only light overall soiling, a few small blemishes in the spine title box, and a little wrinkling to the spine ends. The contents are very good for the edition. The original black endpapers are intact, with no splits or cracking. All maps are intact, including the folding maps at pages 1 and 146, as is the frontispiece, and both folding maps and the frontispiece remain protected by the original tissue guards. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is moderate for the edition, occasional and intermittent throughout and visible on the page edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.1.b, Woods/ICS A1(aa), Langworth p.12.

        Scheveningen".

      - Radierung, 1898, signiert. 23,3: 16,4 cm. Beringer 25, III. – Sehr gutes, vollrandiges Exemplar auf Van Gelder Zonen-Velin. Das Blatt entstand zu einer Zeit als sich Thomas Erfolg nach langen entbehrungsreichen Jahren ohne Anerkennung endlich eingestellt hatte. Thoma begann nach Lehren als Lithograph und Anstreicher in Basel sowie als Uhrenschildmaler in Furtwangen, die er nicht beendete, autodidaktische Mal- und Zeichenstudien. 1859 studierte er an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie bei Ludwig Des Coudres (1820-1878) und Johann Wilhelm Schirmer (1807-1863). 1868 reiste er nach Aufenthalten in Basel und Düsseldorf mit Otto Scholderer (1834-1902) nach Paris. 1870-1877 lebte er in München, wo er mit dem Leibl-Kreis verkehrte. Sein erster Aufenthalt in Italien war 1874, ein zweiter 1880. 1876 zog er nach Frankfurt am Main. Nach sehr zögerlich einsetzendem Erfolg – seinen ersten größeren Auftrag hatte er 1882, 1890 seine erste erfolgreiche Sonderausstellung in München – führte seine steigende Bekanntheit 1898 zur Professur an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie und 1899 zum Direktorat der dortigen Kunsthalle.

One small (one inch) split at top of front joint of volume one, some light marginal foxing, otherwise a very fine set in a handsome binding.Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron Tennyson, FRS (1809-1892) was Poet Laureate of Great Britain and Ireland during much of Queen Victoria's reign and remains one of the most popular British poets. Tennyson excelled at penning short lyrics, such as Break, Break, Break, The Charge of the Light Brigade, Tears, Idle Tears and Crossing the Bar. Much of his verse was based on classical mythological themes, such as Ulysses, although In Memoriam A.H.H. was written to commemorate his friend Arthur Hallam, a fellow poet and student at Trinity College, Cambridge, after he died of a stroke aged just 22. Tennyson also wrote some notable blank verse including Idylls of the King, Ulysses, and Tithonus. During his career, Tennyson attempted drama, but his plays enjoyed little success. A number of phrases from Tennyson's work have become commonplaces of the English language, including "Nature, red in tooth and claw" (In Memoriam A.H.H.), "'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all", "Theirs not to reason why, theirs but to do and die", "My strength is as the strength of ten, because my heart is pure", "To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield", "Knowledge comes, but Wisdom lingers", and "The old order changeth, yielding place to new". Tennyson is the ninth most frequently quoted writer in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations.

"... considered an offbeat classic by Lovecraft and other commentators. Dorothy Scarborough calls it 'the most curdling example' of 'entomological supernaturalism.' The plot, which focuses on ancient Egypt, features a priestess of Isis who haunts the modern world in both human and beetle manifestations. In addition to terror, the novel offers humor, suspense, and memorable minor characters. Lovecraft ranks it on the same level as Stoker's DRACULA." - Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3-162.

English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves?" (H.G. Wells).?"From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…[a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!?" (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914 ).Dale, 90.
