        The Lanthorn Book, being a small collection of Tales and Verses read at the Sign of The Lanthorn ?

      New York: 126 William Street, 1898. First edition, no. 9 of 125 copies. Illustrated. Title page printed in red and black. Printed on rectos only on folded sheets, unpaginated. 1 vols. Small folio. Original quarter reverse calf and green cloth, pictorial label on upper board. Spine worn, with minor loss at head. Internally very fresh. In a cloth clamshell box. An attractive copy of a rare book. A Stephen Crane Rarity, Signed The only "signed and limited edition" of a book by Stephen Crane, the Lanthorn Book was issued for members of the Lanthorn Club on William Street in New York. It contains the story "The Wise Men" which was collected in "The Open Boat" in the same year. No priority has been established (according to Blanck) because it is not known in what month the Lanthorn book was published. According to Starrett it was the intention of the Club to have each contributor sign his piece and he writes: "but it is asserted that only between ten and fifteen copies" were signed by Crane. This theory has lately been disproven in that a much larger number of copies examined contain Crane's signature.

There is also a pencilled exclamation mark in Blackmore's hand to the margin of page 4.

        The Two Magics

      London: William Heinemann 1898 - First edition, second impression, colonial issue. Publisher's decorative blue cloth (Heinemann's third standard binding), with an illustration to the front board of nine tulips in blind, lettered in gilt, printed on wove paper (colonial sheets). Very good, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, bright gilt, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, a hint of toning to the otherwise fresh pages. Overall, a clean and pleasing copy. Edel and Laurence A52a. This copy is one of 300 copies of the colonial issue of The Two Magics that, according to James' bibliographers, "were transferred to the domestic market, some of them appearing in the third standard binding." Copies such as this one were comprised of American sheets in English bindings to supplement the English printings; Edel and Laurence explain that these colonial issues "replaced quire shortages in the domestic second impression." Accordingly, while this issue came later in the second impression, it is still considered scarce because of its unusual issue. The Two Magics collects two pieces of James' short fiction: the novella "The Turn of the Screw" and the short story "Covering End." Now a classic and one of James' best known tales, "The Turn of the Screw" is a gothic ghost story that tells of a governess' experience caring for two children who are haunted by the ghosts of their past caretakers. "Covering End" is James' adaptation for the one-act play Summersoft he wrote in 1895 for the actress Ella Terry. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1898. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good or better copy of the first edition, first printing, of William Somerset Maugham's scarce second book, in the Publisher's original dark green cloth (some rubbing the the Publisher's name at the spine tail, usual darkening to the pastedowns and to the front and rear endpapers -- with each free endpaper showing only a couple tiny edge chips, some spots to the closed page block's bottom edge, a few rather small chips to outer margins of three or four leaves, short closed tear to the bottom margin of the rear catalogue's second leaf, minor cracking to the front pastedown near the joint, tightness to the rear joint -- which may have been reglued); Maugham's scarce second book, INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY WILLIAM SOMERSET MAUGHAM TO HIS BIBLIOGRAPHER FREDERICK BASON WHEREIN MAUGHAM NOTES THAT THE BOOK IS HIS SECOND ONE. The inscription, which appears on the half-title, reads as follows: "W. Somerset Maugham / for Fred Bason / My second book / W. M." As noted by Bason in his Bibliography, only 2,500 copies of the book were published. While fewer (2,000) copies of the preceding (by a month) American first edition were issued, in our experience copies of the first UK edition are the scarcer of the two. The book is particularly scarce to the market when signed and, as noted above, this copy has the benefit of a quite strong association. A Very Good or better ASSOCIATION COPY OF MAUGHAM'S SCARCE SECOND BOOK, INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY MAUGHAM TO THIS BIBLIOGRAPHER FREDERICK BASON.

        THE OPEN BOAT AND OTHER TALES OF ADVENTURE

      New York: William Heinemann,. 1898. original apple green cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in gold, publisher's monogram stamped in blind on rear panel, all edges untrimmed.. Mild foxing to text leaves early and late and edges of text block, a. tight, clean copy with bright gold stamping on spine panel. A very. attractive copy. (#116572). First British edition, greatly enlarged, first binding, earliest inserted catalogue. Crane's best collection of short fiction, including several of his most powerful and best known stories. "The Open Boat," one of Crane's finest short stories, "was based upon his own experiences on his way to Cuba as a correspondent during the filibustering expeditions preceding the Cuban War. The emotions and reactions of four men in an open boat after a wreck are given with an insight and a fidelity to fact that makes the story memorable." - Quinn, American Fiction, p. 536. The collection also contains several tales based on Crane's western trip in 1895 to Mexico via Nebraska, Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas, including his archetypal "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky," in which the mythical Old West yields to the reality of civilization. The fine "Death and the Child," a war story set during the Turko-Greek War in 1897, is "clearly a version of THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE, which it resembles in the incident of panicky flight, in its implication of nature in a drama of self discovery, and in its imagery of the psychological distress that motivates the hero. But it is also like 'The Open Boat' in that its protagonist is in a measure -- up to the moment of panic -- introspective and contemplative." - James B. Colvert, "Stephen Crane," DLB 12 (1982), p. 122.

        An A.B.C. of Golf, by a Victim

      New York: The Blanchard Press, 1898. Fifth edition. Illustrated throughout with humorous lithographic drawings and lettered captions by the author. 1 vols. 11 x 8-1/4 inches. Original lettered burlap wrappers, multcolored paper label of a golfer on upper cover, cover edges slightly frayed, first and last few pages loose, two with slight chips, but overall an attractive copy of a fragile work. Humorous 1898 Golfing Alphabet A most amusing alphabet, in rhymed couplets, mostly focusing on the misadventures of neophyte (or simply inept) golfers; printed on gray stapled coated stock with an inherently fragile burlap cover, this is a book almost doomed to self-distruct; the publisher's advertisement herein describes a hardier format, including a buckram binding, which presumably replaced earlier copies such as this one.

        21 offprints from Henri Becquerel's library

      1898 - Voigt, Woldemar (1850-1919). Collection of 21 offprints, as listed below. Various sizes. V.p., 1898-1914. Original wrappers or without wrappers as issued; see below for detailed condition statements. From the library of Nobel laureate Henri Becquerel (1852-1908) and his son Jean (1878-1953), with characteristic gummed labels on most items; 5 of the offprints bear either presentation inscriptions from Voigt or Henri Becquerel's signature. Boxed. First Separate Editions. Voigt's most important research interests centered on the understanding of crystals, the Zeeman effect and the electron theory. After being appointed ordinary professor of physics at Gottingen in 1883, Voigt "not only pursued theoretical studies of the properties of crystals but also undertook a host of very delicate experimental investigations in which the physical properties of many crystalline substances were measured. [His researches brought] great orderliness . . . to the understanding of crystals. The elastic, thermal, electric and magnetic properties of crystals were ordered in magnitudes of three types: scalar, vector, and tensor. In fact, it was Voigt who in 1898 had introduced the term 'tensor' into the vocabulary of mathematical physics" (DSB). In 1887 Voigt discovered the Lorentz transformations, which he published in a theoretical paper on the Doppler principle (not present here); these transformations (which Einstein developed independently of both Lorentz and Voigt) played a crucial role in Einstein's special theory of relativity. This collection of 21 offprints, representing about one-tenth of the papers Voigt published during his career, is from the library of Henri Becquerel and his son Jean, both of whom performed important research on crystals, with the latter's scientific career being primarily devoted to examination of the effect of a magnetic field on a crystal's optical properties. Several of the papers in this collection cite the work of both Henri and Jean. Four of the offprints bear Voigt's presentation inscriptions to either Henri or Jean; see in particular nos. 14 and 15, two copies of the same paper inscribed to father and son respectively. Five of the papers in this collection (nos. 2, 4, 5, 7 & 10) are cited in the DSB's list of Voigt's major works. Pais, Subtle is the Lord, pp. 121-22. 1. Weiherede bei der am 17. Juni dieses Jahres vollzogenen Enthillung des Gauss-Weber-Denkmales in Gottingen. Offprint from Zeit. Vereines deutsch. Ingenieure 43 (n.d.). 3pp. Without wrappers as issued; creased where folded.

        The Lanthorn Book, being a small collection of Tales and Verses read at the Sign of The Lanthorn ?

      New York: 126 William Street, 1898. First edition, no. 9 of 125 copies. Illustrated. Title page printed in red and black. Printed on rectos only on folded sheets, unpaginated. 1 vols. Small folio. Original quarter reverse calf and green cloth, pictorial label on upper board. Spine worn, with minor loss at head. Internally very fresh. In a cloth clamshell box. An attractive copy of a rare book. A Stephen Crane Rarity, Signed The only "signed and limited edition" of a book by Stephen Crane, the Lanthorn Book was issued for members of the Lanthorn Club on William Street in New York. It contains the story "The Wise Men" which was collected in "The Open Boat" in the same year. No priority has been established (according to Blanck) because it is not known in what month the Lanthorn book was published.According to Starrett it was the intention of the Club to have each contributor sign his piece and he writes: "but it is asserted that only between ten and fifteen copies" were signed by Crane. This theory has lately been disproven in that a much larger number of copies examined contain Crane's signature.

        Grien on Rougemont Or the Story of a Modern Robinson Crusoe

      London: Edward Lloyd, 1898. Folio, illustrated throughout, original wrappers printed in red and green bound in, some wear and chipping, old newspaper clippings tipped in; a very good copy in modern red half morocco by Morrell, bookplate of Henry L. White. An Australian "Robinson Crusoe" An interesting satirical account of one of the great late century hoaxes, of a Swiss man who claimed to have lived among the Aborigines of northern Australia. Illustrated by the great cartoonist Phil May, who had honed his style while working on the Bulletin in Sydney.Louis de Rougemont (born Henri Louis Grin) first came to Australia as an aide to the governor of Western Australia William Robinson, but in 1877 'became master and owner of the pearling cutter Ada, which was posted missing in February 1877 some months before it was found wrecked near Cooktown, Queensland; Grin claimed to have sailed the 3000 miles (4828 km) from Fremantle and to have been the sole survivor of an attack by Aboriginals at Lacrosse Island' (ADB). After a quiet decade or so in Sydney, he suddenly fled to New Zealand and then England, where he published a fanciful serial based on his "thirty years" living with the Aborigines of northern Australia in the then popular Wide World Magazine.D.W. Carnegie, a writer for the rival Daily Chronicle, was one of the first to spot Rougemont's deception, and wrote a series of articles, collected here. Rougemont later toured as the self-styled "Greatest Liar on Earth"

        [Chromolithograph broadside]: Breaking the Record

      Nottingham: R.W. Perkins "City" Printing Office. 1898. Large chromolithograph satiric broadside calendar issued as an advertisement for an English printing company. Measuring 17.75" x 21.5" (45 x 55cm.) Large illustration with publisher's information and two affixed calendar leaves on gold metal leaf paper (each denoting six months of the year). One small scrape in one margin, very near fine. An advertisement for a Nottingham printing company with a blatantly racist illustration of colorfully garbed black bicyclists bearing down on the finish line of a race, with chaos ensuing as they grab for the prizes that are perched upon a tattered and patched tablecloth on a wooden table: a trophy, a clock, a box of cigars, and some caged chickens, with resultant shoes, hats, nails, bricks, and various flotsam and jetsam flying, and as the crowd and judges look on aghast. Presumably this was intended for an American market, as it seems unlikely it would have resonated with an English provincial market of the times. Anecdotally we have been led to believe that the printer Perkins contemplated a move to America, and this image might have been intended as an ingratiating advertisement for his new potential customers. In what can be considered by various lights as either irony or karmic retribution, or both, his press and type were lost in the Atlantic crossing, thwarting his intentions, but we have been unable to confirm this comforting tale. OCLC locates no copies. Rare and possibly unique. .

Falls er Sie also um Geld bitten sollte - so thun Sie natürlich im Prinzip, was Sie für gut finden - ich aber halte es für meine Freundespflicht Ihnen gegenüber, Ihnen zu sagen, dass in punkto Geldsachen keiner noch so bindenden Zusicherung W.s zu trauen ist. Ich selbst habe darin wie Kayssler meine Erfahrungen [...]". - Mit Friedrich Kayssler war Morgenstern seit seiner Gymnasialzeit in Breslau befreundet.
