      John Murray, London 1898 - Two volumes, with 15 full-page plates, nine maps (four folding) and numerous illustrations in the text; foxing to endpapers otherwise a very good set in the original decorated cloth. An important book on late-nineteenth-century Thailand. Smyth spent some years in Thailand as director of the Department of Mines, and his well-illustrated account of the country, then under the rule of King Chulalongkorn, describes the prosperous last years free of colonial controls. 'Thailand presented a singular contrast to the rest of Southeast Asia in the late nineteenth century. Thai leaders followed policies that revealed a remarkable capacity to gain the greatest benefit from the new and intrusive element of European power' (Osborne, Southeast Asia).Within only a few years Thailand was to lose part of its country to French colonial aspirations, and in 1909 it lost four Malay states to the British.

L'éditorial de Zola et le procès qui s'en suivit, sans lequel Dreyfus n'aurait sans doute jamais été réhabilité, marqua un tournant fondamental dans l'histoire de l'engagement politique des intellectuels et l'utilisation des médias comme contre-pouvoir. Si le courage de Zola est inspiré des grandes prises de positions politiques de Victor Hugo, l'importance historique de son geste tient surtout à ses conséquences inédites : Révision du procès, dénonciation publique de l'antisémitisme du pouvoir militaire, création de La ligue des Droits de l'Homme. Le quatrième pouvoir vient d'acquérir ses lettres de noblesse !

        Autograph Note Signed

      Bjornstjerne Bjornson, 1898, No binding., Book Condition: FineAn AUTOGRAPH NOTE ADDRESSED, WRITTEN, SIGNED, PLACED, and DATED FROM BJORNSTJERNE BJORNSON to William J. [Dornut?], Esq in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in response to an inquiry made by [Dornut] to Bjornstjerne in which Bjornstjerne states: "Dear Sir, Mr. Clemens Peter- / sen of [illegible] New- / York, is the best one I know / to deliver an address upon / my works and myself. // Truly Yours // Bjornson Bjornstjerne // Schwaz, Tirol, 1898 28/9". [The card measures approximately 3 1/2 inches x 5 1/2 inches and is in Fine condition with only a bit of bumping to the corners.] Norwegian author Bjornstjerne Bjornson won the 1903 Nobel Prize in Literature "as a tribute to his noble, magnificent and versatile poetry, which has always been distinguished by both the freshness of its inspiration and the rare purity of its spirit". (The third winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Bjornson also is celebrated in Norway for having written the Norwegian National Anthem's lyrics.) Known as the "feared dictator" of cultural and intellectual life in both Denmark and Norway in the mid-Nineteenth Century, Clemens Petersen attacked Denmark's literary establishment, turning to Norwegian writers for inspiration. Petersen proclaimed that Bjornson's novel "Synnove Solbakken" signaled a new beginning for Norwegian and Danish literature and was such a great champion of Bjornson that his ardor at times embarrassed the Norwegian. (Petersen was one of the first to recognize Ibsen's talent as well.) Bjornstjerne and Petersen were close friends and, notably, Bjornstjerne was a public defender of homosexuality. When Petersen's homosexuality became known, Petersen fled Denmark for the United States, with Bjornstjerne helping Peterson finance the trip, and the correspondence between the two men reflects their close relationship, with Bjornstjerne calling Petersen "My half-life". In our experience, both books signed by Bjornson and signed correspondence in his hand are far from common, with such items from most other Nobelists in Literature being much more readily available. The note herein described has a particularly nice subject matter as it relates to Bjornson's dear friend and champion Clemens Petersen. A Fine AUTOGRAPH NOTE ADDRESSED, WRITTEN, SIGNED, PLACED, and DATED FROM BJORNSTJERNE BJORNSON and REFERRING TO HIS DEAR FRIEND AND CHAMPION CLEMENS PETERSEN.

        Autograph Note Signed

      Schwaz, Tirol [Tyrol] Austria: Bjornstjerne Bjornson, 1898. No binding.. Fine. An AUTOGRAPH NOTE ADDRESSED, WRITTEN, SIGNED, PLACED, and DATED FROM BJORNSTJERNE BJORNSON to William J. [Dornut?], Esq in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in response to an inquiry made by [Dornut] to Bjornstjerne in which Bjornstjerne states: "Dear Sir, Mr. Clemens Peter- / sen of [illegible] New- / York, is the best one I know / to deliver an address upon / my works and myself. // Truly Yours // Bjornson Bjornstjerne // Schwaz, Tirol, 1898 28/9". [The card measures approximately 3 1/2 inches x 5 1/2 inches and is in Fine condition with only a bit of bumping to the corners.] Norwegian author Bjornstjerne Bjornson won the 1903 Nobel Prize in Literature "as a tribute to his noble, magnificent and versatile poetry, which has always been distinguished by both the freshness of its inspiration and the rare purity of its spirit". (The third winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Bjornson also is celebrated in Norway for having written the Norwegian National Anthem's lyrics.) Known as the "feared dictator" of cultural and intellectual life in both Denmark and Norway in the mid-Nineteenth Century, Clemens Petersen attacked Denmark's literary establishment, turning to Norwegian writers for inspiration. Petersen proclaimed that Bjornson's novel "Synnove Solbakken" signaled a new beginning for Norwegian and Danish literature and was such a great champion of Bjornson that his ardor at times embarrassed the Norwegian. (Petersen was one of the first to recognize Ibsen's talent as well.) Bjornstjerne and Petersen were close friends and, notably, Bjornstjerne was a public defender of homosexuality. When Petersen's homosexuality became known, Petersen fled Denmark for the United States, with Bjornstjerne helping Peterson finance the trip, and the correspondence between the two men reflects their close relationship, with Bjornstjerne calling Petersen "My half-life". In our experience, both books signed by Bjornson and signed correspondence in his hand are far from common, with such items from most other Nobelists in Literature being much more readily available. The note herein described has a particularly nice subject matter as it relates to Bjornson's dear friend and champion Clemens Petersen.

Signed in pencil to the upper corner of the half-title: "Dr. A. Wallace". Although we cannot guarantee this to be in the Author's own hand, we feel there to be sufficient points identical to elements of his earlier signature [such as, for example that printed at the foot of the portrait photo frontispiece plate] possibly to indicate the Doctor's ownership of the volume after its acquisition in 1898 when he would have been 75/76..

Book label of Robert Booth, noted 1890s collector, on front pastedown. Spine toned and rolled, sides lightly soiled, customary offsetting from pastedowns to endpapers. Third edition limited to 99 copies numbered in purple ink and signed by Wilde, who referred to it as the "author's edition". It was issued just one month after the first edition, and Wilde himself insisted on the new colour for the binding and Rickett's design for the front cover. Wilde used the pseudonym "C.3.3." as this was his number in Reading Gaol, indicating that he occupied Cell 3 on the third landing of Gallery C. "The Ballad of Reading Gaol was selling as no poem had sold for years. One shop sold fifty copies on the morning of publication. Smithers had only risked printing 400 out of a projected 800 copies of the first edition] in January, but early in February he ordered 400 more, and the same month had to print another thousand" (Richard Ellmann, Oscar Wilde, pp. 525-26).
