        The War of the Worlds

      [8]+526 pages with frontispiece and fifteen additional plates. Small octavo (7 ½" x 5 ¼") bound in original publisher?s decorated green cloth with gilt lettering to spine and cover. Illustrated by Warwick Goble. With the original recording of the famous Orson Welles broadcast in the Fall of 1938. (Curry p526) First American edition. The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel by English author H. G. Wells first serialized in 1897 in the UK by Pearson's Magazine and in the US by Cosmopolitan magazine. The novel's first appearance in hardcover was in 1898 from publisher William Heinemann of London. Written between 1895 and 1897, it is one of the earliest stories that detail a conflict between mankind and an extraterrestrial race.The novel is the first-person narrative of an unnamed protagonist in Surrey and that of his younger brother in London as Earth is invaded by Martians. The novel is one of the most commented-on works in the science fiction canon. The plot has been related to invasion literature of the time. The novel has been variously interpreted as a commentary on evolutionary theory, British imperialism, and generally Victorian superstitions, fears and prejudices. At the time of publication, it was classified as a scientific romance, like Wells' earlier novel The Time Machine. The War of the Worlds has been both popular (having never gone out of print) and influential, spawning half a dozen feature films, radio dramas, a record album, various comic book adaptations, a television series, and sequels or parallel stories by other authors. It has even influenced the work of scientists, notably Robert Goddard, who (inspired by the book) invented both the liquid fueled rocket and multistage rocket, which resulted in the Apollo 11 moon landing 55 years later.Condition: Spine darkened with light rubbing to tips, light scattered soiling, small chip to upper corner of title previous owner?s stamp to pasted downs and page 31 else a very good copy.

        [Photograph]: Sacramento Camera Club 1898

      Sepia-toned albumen photograph. Measuring 9" x 7.5" on slightly larger card leaf apparently removed from an album. Slight sunning at the edges, some light staining on the mount, not affecting the image, otherwise near fine. Labeled in ink on the mount: "Sacramento Camera Club 1898." Image of nearly 50 California shutterbugs, about half of them women, posing with cameras, many of those on tripods. On the verso of the mount is a photo of similar size and condition of a railroad locomotive in snow labeled: "Flat Wheels Blue Canyon. Jan. 1897." Some contemporary newspaper accounts seem to indicate that the Club came into existence in 1895, and exchanged images for exhibition with other clubs throughout the country. The photo of the Club is a very nice, large and relatively early image of amateur photographers. .

Some wear, soiling, tanned endpapers, previous owner name inside. 1898, 8vo, [12], 1-289pp. 5 fine folding maps, 1 fine full page map. "The Greco-Turkish War of 1897, also called the Thirty Days' War and known in Greece as the Black '97 or the Unfortunate War, was a war fought between the Kingdom of Greece and Ottoman Empire. Its immediate cause was the question over the status of the Ottoman province of Crete, whose Greek majority long desired union with Greece. Despite a decisive Ottoman military victory, an autonomous Cretan State under Ottoman suzerainty was established the following year (as a result of the intervention of the Great Powers after the war), with Prince George of Greece and Denmark as its first High Commissioner. This was the first war effort in which the military and political personnel of Greece were put to test since the Greek War of Independence in 1821." wikipedia [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Journal of geology a semi-quarterly magazine of geology and related sciences (109 volume set) (1898-2006, Vols. 6-114)

      University of Chicago Press 1898 - 109 volumes. Volumes 6-114, 1898-2006. 109 years of the Journal + Index (for 1893-1927). First 23 volumes bound in 3/4 antique red leather, later 85 volumes bound in full red buckram. Volume 6 (1898) contains only No. 6 for that year. One year not bound in hardcover (5 paperback volumes), vol. 80, 1972, lacks No. 1 (Jan.) of the 6 issues for that year otherwise, complete. Two volumes (1946-1947) bound together as one volume. Institutional stamps. 26 cm high. Some volumes have a spine label. A massive set filled with articles, diagrams, tables, maps, illustrations, photographs, etc. This set is so gneiss you shouldn?t take it for granite. From the University of Chicago: One of the oldest journals in geology, The Journal of Geology has since 1893 promoted the systematic philosophical and fundamental study of geology. The Journal published original research across a broad range of subfields in geology, including geophysics, geochemistry, sedimentology, geomorphology, petrology, plate tectonics, volcanology, structural geology, mineralogy, and planetary sciences. Many of its articles have wide appeal for geologists, present research of topical relevance, and offer new geological insights through the application of innovative approaches and methods. International buyers, please do NOT purchase this set unless you are willing to cover the costs. The weight and width of this 109 volume set is significant. Don't expect perfection from these books, they all have their faults. These books are perfect for the sedimental geology lover. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Belfast, Ireland, 1898. Tears in both corners of upper margin, not affecting image or text. Light edge wear. Very good. 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 later 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, the part of Rosie; and her son, Edward LeRoy, plays Joe Smith. All three are depicted on this poster, which also features a large gold nugget, and shows scenes from the play in camp, on the trail, and in hairy situations in barrooms and the frozen wilderness. One of the larger illustrations shows a forlorn Cody pondering a map, while another shows him, pick-axe in hand, "on the summit of the Chilcoot Pass." OCLC locates a single copy of this poster, at Yale. A colorful and rare poster from a remarkable American showman at the height of the Klondike Gold Rush.

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

      Longmans, Green and Co., London 1898 - 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 Churchill’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.

      San Francisco: Goodall, Perkins & Co., 1898.. 26pp. Original printed wrappers, stapled. Some edge chipping, toned and somewhat brittle, as usual. Good. A rare 1898 pamphlet with much information on the Yukon- Klondike and Alaska gold fields. Gold was discovered in 1896 on Rabbit Creek, a tributary of the Klondike, and when the news got out in July 1897, tens of thousands of gold seekers undertook the harrowing journey to Dyea and the Chilkoot gold rush trail. This pamphlet was very popular, with a first print run of 50,000 copies. 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.

"Since the consolidation of the Statutes in 1890, the additions to the Statute Roll have been as numerous and important as they have been complicated, irritating, and perplexing. When it is considered that nearly five hundred Statutes have been passed, a very large number of them affecting the existing laws, and that these new Acts occupy ten sessional volumes, and necessitate reference throughout, I feel that no apology is needed [for this work, which is modeled] on Chitty's Statutes of Practical Utility.": Volume I Preface [iii].

        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.

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.

        A Chinese and English vocabulary in the Pekinese dialect. By George Carter Stent, Imperial Maritime Customs. Revised by Rev. Donald MacGillivray.

      American Presbyterian Mission Press 1898 - Third Edition.- 1 h., [V]-VII, 788 p., (209x137mm.).- Encuadernación en tela a la holandesa con puntas; borde de lomera y puntas fileteadas en dorado. Cantos y pies rozados con tela perdida. Interior impoluto sin firmas, anotaciones ni subrayados.- // Si la elaboración de diccionarios formó parte de la actividad desarrollada por los misioneros católicos tanto en América, por jesuitas y franciscanos, como en Asia, por los jesuitas en los siglos XVI y XVII, así también, a partir de la década de 1820, lo fue del protestantismo evangelista y las sociedades bíblicas cuando acometieron la última gran oleada de divulgación del cristianismo, en este caso protestante, fuera de Europa. Dentro de esta obra global, la misión presbiteriana americana en Shanghai reimprimió en 1898 la tercera edición de este vocabulario, obra del inspector de aduanas marítimas George Stent. La primera edición de la obra de Stent había sido impresa en noviembre de 1871 por el servicio de aduanas britanico en Shangai, que también publicó la tercera y definitiva en 1877. Más que un vocabulario, esta demostración de paciencia es una dilatada relación de frases, o 'conceptos narrados', puestas en el orden alfabético de la transliteración de su pronunciación en el dialecto pekinés a caracteres latinos. De tal manera que, como señala su autor en el breve prefacio, es un vocabulario que toma su punto de partida en cualquier expresión que previamente 'se haya oído' y, por su sonido, poder conocer cómo se escribe en pictogramas, cuál es el significado del concepto base que entra en juego y el de las principales 'ideas' que se construyen con él, y la escritura en pictograma de esas 'ideas' relacionadas. Por si no fuera suficientemente complicado, el autor, así lo indicaba en el prólogo de la primera edición ausente de ésta, se impuso también el límite de no ocupar nada más que una línea con cada entrada para facilitar simultáneamente la organización de la información en columnas y un recorrido más sencillo por el vocabulario.

Der italienische Mediziner und Anthropologe Cesare Lombroso (1836-1909) war Militärarzt in Pavia, leitete fünf Jahre die Nervenanstalt von Pesaro, lehrte später in Turin gerichtliche Medizin, Hygiene sowie Psychiatrie und gilt als Begründer der Kriminologie. 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).
