        Two Portrait photographs of Junius Spencer Morgan, Jr. , as toddler and child, dated December 1894 and August 1898

      n.p., n.d. - Charming photographs of the grandson of the legendary financier J. P. Morgan. The first portrait shows the young child (aged two) standing and holding a sailing ship (L. Alman, New York and Newport, R. I.). In the second (aged six), he is posed leaning against a stone bench before a rural backdrop (Bullingham, London). Eldest son of Jack Morgan, "Junius Spencer, Jr., graduated from Harvard in 1914. he served as a junior officer on a destroyer off the English coast in the war, an experience that left him with shattered nerves. Tall and extraordinarily handsome, with the face of a sensitive actor, he became a Morgan partner in 1919. Warmly approachable and possessed of a dry sense of humor, Junius was probably the nicest Morgan-but the most dismal businessman. . Like his father and grandfather and brother, Junius became a commodore of the New York Yacht Club-the only certifiable Morgan activity that really fit him" (Chernow, The House of Morgan, p. 266) (MORGAN, JUNIUS SPENCER, JR) Each 4 x 5-1/2 inches on studio card mounts, with name and date in ink.

        Original Studio Portrait of Lt. Col. Sam Steele [South African War Service Kit?] in Imperial Service Solar Helmet Starthcona's Horse

      Hegg & Co., Photos, Dawson, Dawson City, Yukon Territory - 1898. (Photograph) Very good. Original Photograph mounted on studio card: 9 1 / 2" X 6 1 / 4" Image: 7 5 / 16" X 4 7 / 8". Original Studio Portrait of Lt. Col. Sam Steele [South African War Service Kit?] in Imperial Service Solar Helmet Starthcona's Horse. Major General Sir Samuel Benfield Steele, CB, KCMG, MVO (January 5, 1851 – January 30, 1919) was a famous member of the North West Mounted Police.He joined the local militia as a teenager and fought against the Fenians at the Battle of Ridgeway. He was sent west first to fight the Red River Rebellion of Louis Riel, but arrived after the Métis had surrendered. Steele had long been fascinated by the west, devouring the works of James Fenimore Cooper in his youth. He was especially interested in the First Nations, and spent his time in the west learning from them and the Metis. However he was recalled from Manitoba and based in Fort Henry in Kingston for the next few years.He was chosen to be one of the first members of the NWMP, being only the third officer sworn in. In 1873 he returned to Fort Garry with the new force and was put in charge of drilling the new recruits. Over the next few years he crisscrossed the prairies, before being assigned to NWMP headquarters to train new recruits.In 1881 he was assigned to meet with Sitting Bull, who fresh from defeating General Custer had moved into Canada and was demanding land for his people. Steele and a few officers met them and reached a peaceful agreement. This action won Steele great acclaim in the newspapers of the United States and was the beginning of his role as a public figure.In the North-West Rebellion Steele was dispatched with a small force. Missing the Battle of Batoche Steele and his force were sent to move against the last rebel force lead by Chief Big Bear. Steele and his two dozen Mounties defeated Big Bear's force at Loon Lake in the last battle ever fought on Canadian territory. The contributions of the NWMP to putting down the rebellion went largely ignored and unrewarded, to Steele's great annoyance. Steele spent the next ten years assigned to Fort McLeod, and at age 41 married Maria Harwood, eventually the couple had three children.In 1898 he was sent north to the Yukon to succeed Charles Constantine with policing during the Klondike Gold Rush. Initially, he was in charge of the customs posts at the Chilkoot Pass and White Pass, where he created the rule that no one would be allowed to enter without a ton of goods. Steele and his force made the Klondike Gold Rush into one of the most orderly events of its kind in history and made the police force famous around the world, which ensured its survival at a critical time when the force's dissolution was being debated in parliament.In 1900 he was second in command in Lord Strathcona's Horse, a Canadian light cavalry unit sent to South Africa during the Boer war and did so with distinction. Steele, however, disliked greatly what he was ordered to do by the British, which included burning towns and moving the populace to concentration camps.Steele was knighted in 1918 and was made a Companion of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George, and Member of the Royal Victorian Order.Canada's fifth tallest mountain, Mount Steele, is named after him.

        The Decoration of Houses

      B. T. Batsford, London 1898 - First UK edition, First Impression of the author's first book under her married name (a collection of poems appeared in 1878 under Edith Newbold Jones). Batsford bound up sheets from the first American edition and issued them with a cancel title page. Tall, wide 8vo; pp xxii, 204, [2]pp, with 56 plates and an 8-page publisher's catalogue. Publisher's burgundy cloth, the upper cover decorated in blind and lettered in gilt, the spine titled in gilt, the top edge gilt, the fore- and bottom edges untrimmed. An unusually collectible copy, for all purposes Fine, with all plates present and firmly attached and free of spotting and foxing, all pages (save the toned front fly leaf and first blank) clean, fresh and bright, the binding square and holding firm. Neat and rather elegant ownership inscription to the first blank, dated ‘1.Sept.05.’ Quite scarce in this superb condition. Wharton "was traveling in Europe in early 1895, gathering inspiration for The Decoration of Houses (1897), which she co-wrote with Ogden Codman, a young society architect. . . . Although there is something superficially bizarre about a decorating book whose illustrations are drawn from the great palaces of Europe, the structural principles espoused by Wharton and Codman are essentially functional: rooms must do the work for which they are intended. This first foray into the subject in print was only the beginning: three more books would follow which drew on this expertise and interest—Italian Villas and their Gardens (1904), Italian Backgrounds (1905), and A Motor-Flight Through France (1908)."

        Peep Bo Pictures

      Ernest Nister, London 1898 - Delightful and extremely rare movable book from Nister comprising of six transformation chromolithograph illustrations. The transformations are made up of horizontal slats operated by a tab that changes the illustration from one scene into another. So there is one scene of two cats having afternoon tea in a teashop and then they go on a boat trip at sea in a boat driven by a Puffin; a hen with her eggs just hatching and then taking her chickens out on the lake. As expected with Nister they are beautiful and sugar sweet! In Hunt, p.316. Not in Montanaro. 20x17.5 cm; 16pp.Scuffed boards with worn corners. This book suffers from the common problem with Nister books of having been published on wood pulp paper which is now very brittle, particularly around the edges. The book binder has re-set the pages and replaced the end papers [retaining the original front and rear free end papers] and reinforced some of the edges with archival tape, but the book is still fragile with chips / abrasions around the page edges / hinge lines - hence overall 'fair' condition. Some of the tabs have been replaced / repaired and all transformations work [to be operated with care!]. A very rare book with lovely illustrations! 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

        Cyrano de Bergerac [Presentation Copy] Translated by Howard Thayer Kingsbury: Accepted and Played by Richard Mansfield

      Lamson, Wolffe and Company, Boston, New York, London 1898 - First English Edition, inscribed in an elegant hand by the translator on front fly leaf: "Compliments of / Howard Thayer Kingsbury / November, 1898." Small 8vo: 241,[1]pp. Publisher's original red cloth lettered and decorated in silver to spine and upper board, with frontispiece portrait (tissue guard still present) of the actor Richard Mansfield in costume. A Near Fine or better, spine slightly faded (though silver remains bright) and darkened page edges. Very scarce, particularly in this condition. Cyrano de Bergerac was first published in France by Charpentier et Fasquelle in 1898 (following its stage production at the Porte Saint-Martin Theater in Paris on December 28, 1897), and first translated into English by Kingsbury for Lamson, Wolffe the same year. Mansfield was the first actor to play Cyrano in the United States in an English translation. The play is based loosely on the life of Savien de Cyrano de Bergerac (1619-1655), Rostand’s favorite writer. "Yet the character as portrayed by Rostand – with his excessively-enlarged nose, his almost super-human duelling skills and his ability to improvise eloquent poetic speeches – is far from an exact portrait of the real-life Cyrano of the seventeenth century. . . . Possessed of a keen intellect with an insatiable appetite for reading and for learning, he constantly experiments with, when he is not challenging outright, the established social, scientific, political and religious ideas of his day. This questioning, satirising and ridiculing of contemporary authorities, along with an open-mindedness to new concepts that remains strikingly modern, has earned Cyrano a firm place amongst the libertin writers of seventeenth-century France."

        Cyrano de Bergerac

      William R. Jenkins, New York 1898 - First American Edition (in French), preceding both British and American English-language editions. Tall 8vo: [6],7-239,[1]pp, with nine black and white plates, the first, of Rostand, with protective tissue. Publisher's vertically ribbed green cloth lettered in gilt and decorated in gilt and black, top edge gilt, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed. A better than Near Fine copy, binding sound, pages fresh and bright, plates clean and free of foxing. Cyrano de Bergerac was first published in France by Charpentier et Fasquelle in 1898 (following its stage production at the Porte Saint-Martin Theater in Paris on December 28, 1897), and then, in this edition, in New York. The play is based loosely on the life of Savien de Cyrano de Bergerac (1619-1655), known for his swashbuckling adventures and large nose, and was meticulously researched, down to the names of the members of the Académie française and the dames précieuses glimpsed before the performance in the first scene. Written in verse, in rhyming couplets of 12 syllables per line, very close to the Alexandrine format. Cyrano introduced the word "panache" into the English language.

Original blue-green cloth, titles to spine gilt, front board elaborately gilt, Beardsley's 'Puck on Pegasus' gilt-stamped to rear board. Frontispiece, cover design, and 6 initial letters by Beardsley. Ink ownership inscription to front pastedown.

Nonetheless, the eight artworks published in Leonard Smither's Volpone "reveal a strength and breadth of scope...and a mastery of the medium that make it safe to guess that the book, if completed, would have been his greatest achievement" (Nelson, Publisher to the Decadents, p.167).

        Antar. Poème Héroique Arabe des Temps Antéislamiques

      Paris: H. Piazza et Cie, 1898. L?édition d?Art. Full binding by Canape (full morocco in burnt orange, cream, olivegreen, purple and brown, heavy gilt, raised bands on spine, inner dentelles, moirée silk doublures, all edges gilt) full morocco with marbled paper chemise, suède lined box. Original wrappers bound in. Georges Canape (1864-1940) succeeded his father J. Canape, in 1894. Like many of his contemporaries, he soon adopted a restrained version of the Art Nouveau esthetic popularized by Marius-Michel. Canape?s own compositions often consisted of floral emblems within rather formal borders. At the annual Paris Salons, he offered the new style, blended with classical revival bindings, all executed with superb technical precision. Fine. Folio. Four volumes: two volumes Antar, two on Dinét Illustrated in colour by E. Dinet One of 25 copies (of a total edition of 300) on grand velin d?Arches paper Special edition with an additional (to the coloured ones) suite of plates in black on china paper (This suite separately bound). An absolutely stunning book. The illustrations by Etienne Dinet (1861 - 1929) bring to life the legend of Antar, the triumph of good over evil. Dinet was one of the foremost French orientalist painters of his time, and was highly regarded during his life time. Dinet spent a large part of his life in Morocco, and he also converted to Islam. He portrayed the people of the desert and their culture as few artists have been able to do. To quote the publishers: ?All of these epic illustrations were drawn by him (Dinet) in nature amongst the people of the Saharas, during the many long years he spent with them, in the mysterious solitude of this region where he has seen the life of the Arabs of the Desert, whose strange and wild poetry he has brought to us with his rare talent. Fights, dances, razzias, caravans, celebrations, hunts, etc., etc., all the parts in the life of the Nomadic Arabs, one will find amongst the compositions which accompany the text of each page of Antar .

        Auf Schneeschuhen durch Grönland., Zwei Bände. Autorisierte deutsche Übersetzung von M. Mann.

      Hamburg: Verlagsanstalt und Druckerei Actien-Gesellschaft (vormals J. F. Richter),, 1898 - 1 Porträt, (IV), 400; IV, 455 (1) Seiten mit zusammen 159 Abbildungen und 4 farbigen mehrfach gefalteten Karten. "Fridtjof Wedel-Jarlsberg Nansen (* 10. Oktober 1861 in Store Frøen bei Christiania (Oslo); † 13. Mai 1930 in Lysaker bei Oslo) war ein norwegischer Zoologe, Polarforscher, Philanthrop und internationaler Staatsmann. Aufgrund seiner Verdienste um die internationale Flüchtlingshilfe erhielt er 1922 den Friedensnobelpreis. . Nach seinem Schul-Abschluss wollte er Marineoffizier werden, entschied sich jedoch auf den Rat seines Vaters für ein Studium der Zoologie. Er studierte von 1880 bis 1881 an der Universität von Christiania und machte 1882 mit dem Seehundfänger Viking seine erste Reise in grönländische Gewässer auf Anraten seines Professors. . Nach einem vorübergehenden Aufenthalt an der zoologischen Station in Neapel fasste er den Plan einer Durchquerung des grönländischen Inlandeises auf Ski vom unbesiedelten Osten nach Westen. Damit wollte er bewusst sämtliche Rückzugsmöglichkeiten abschneiden. Er brach im Mai 1888 mit fünf Begleitern zu dieser Expedition auf, die teils von ihm selbst, teils vom Kopenhagener Kaufmann Gamel finanziert wurde. Nach einigen Irrfahrten an der vom Eis versperrten Ostküste Grönlands begann Nansen am 15. August am Gyldenløve-Fjord mit seinen Begleitern die Durchquerung, die zwei Monate später bei Godthaab an der Westküste der Insel endete. Dabei legte die Expedition etwa 560 km zurück und gelangte zwischenzeitlich bis auf mehr als 2.700 m Höhe. Nachdem sie in Godthaab überwintert hatten (wo er die Gelegenheit nutzte, die Lebensweise der Inuit zu studieren), kehrten im Frühjahr 1889 alle Teilnehmer wohlbehalten nach Europa zurück. Mit seiner Expedition konnte Nansen nachweisen, dass das gesamte innere Grönland von Schnee und Eis bedeckt ist. Hinzu kamen neue Erkenntnisse und Beobachtungen zur Geographie und vor allem zur Ausdehnung und Bewegung der Gletscher Grönlands, mit denen er die moderne Gletscherforschung begründete. Seine Messungen trugen auch zum besseren Verständnis der meteorologischen Verhältnisse und der Wetterentstehung in Europa und im nördlichen Atlantik bei."

        Four Girls at Cottage City

      Boston: James H. Earle. 1898. First. First edition, second issue (the earliest obtainable edition -- see below). Gift inscription on the front fly, and a neat horizontal repair near the bottom of the spine, else a fine and fresh copy of a not particularly well-manufactured book. Republished in 1988 by the Oxford University Press, this is an early novel for adolescents about four (racially unidentified) young ladies leaving Providence for a vacation on Cape Cod or Martha's Vineyard. The true first edition was originally published (and almost certainly self-published) in 1895 in Providence, Rhode Island under the imprint of The Continental Printing Co. After the successful publication of the author's earlier and anonymously authored novel Megda by James H. Earle, Earle apparently obtained the remaining sheets of the original printing of Four Girls at Cottage City and reissued them with a separately printed cancel title page. The text and collation of the text of the 1895 issue are identical to that of this 1898 issue except for the title leaf, which was completely reset and is typographically inconsistent with the text. Generally considered the sixth novel published by an African-American woman, the identification of the 1895 issue would perhaps move the book up one place. The 1895 issue is known in only one copy, held by the John Hay Library at Brown University. OCLC lists four copies of this 1898 edition. We have seen only one other (physically much inferior) copy of the 1898 issue offered on the market in the past two decades. Our thanks to Richard Nobel of the John Hay Library for his research in identifying and distinguishing the printing priority. .
