        The warstock: A tale of tomorrow

      By Wirt Gerrare. London, W.W. Greener [68, Haymarket, London, S.W., and St. Mary?'s Square, Birmingham], 1898. Leaf bearing printer?'s imprint on recto, blank on verso, followed by 4pp. publisher?'s advertisements, at end; pp.[xvi]+218+[ii]+[4]; bevelled horizontally fine-ribbed moiré metallic blue cloth, lettered, and blocked wiith author?'s signature, gilt, on front cover and spine; t.e.g., others uncut; end-papers printed with floral pattern in pale lime green. Slight fading to cloth cover on front cover and spine; otherwise a virtually fine copy. Hard-core science fiction. The first issue, copies also being known in pink cloth lettered in light red, with all edges cut. Locke, Spectrum [I], p.90, writing more than fifty years ago, describes this title as ?"one of the easier science fiction titles of the 1890s to find?". We suspect that a small cache had been discovered at about that time: in thirty-eight years of trading, this is the first copy we have seen, though we have had copies of two of his other books. The publisher, besides being a relative, appears to have been a dealer in sporting guns, etc., and himself wrote several standard books on the history and handling of guns, that were published by Cassell. His own firm published translations of them into French, German, Spanish, and Russian, as well as publishing at least one book by an early pioneer in South Africa. COPAC records only the British Library, Cambridge, and Trinity College Dublin copies; Bleiler [1948], p.126; Clute and Nicholls, p.491. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

Original Hardcover (green cloth with lettering to spine and cover). Extraordinarily excellent (Near Mint) condition with barely any signs of wear. Wonderful and rare publication !. Elizabeth Corbet Yeats (11 March 1868 - 16 January 1940), known as Lolly, was born at 23 Fitzroy Road, London. She was the daughter of the Irish artist John Butler Yeats and sister of W. B., Jack and Susan Mary "Lily" Yeats. She trained and worked as an art teacher and was a member of William Morris's circle in London before her family returned to Dublin in 1900. Yeats wrote and created the artwork for "Elementary Brush-Work Studies" (published in 1900), an educational book that teaches young children the technique of painting flowers and plants using her simple method. At the suggestion of Emery Walker, who worked with Morris on the Kelmscott Press, Yeats studied printing with the Women's Printing Society in London. In Dublin, she accepted the invitation to join Evelyn Gleeson to form the Dun Emer Guild along with Lily, who was an embroiderer. Yeats managed the Dun Emer Press from 1902. The Press was located at Runnymede, the house of Evelyn Gleeson. (This house, located in Dundrum, was later renamed Dun Emer. It has since been demolished.) This was set up with the intention of training young women in bookbinding and printing. In 1908, she and her brother William started the Cuala Press, publishing over 70 books including 48 by the poet. Yeats was the first commercial printer in Ireland to work exclusively with hand presses. (Wikipedia)

        The Psychology of Suggestion

      New York: D. Appleton and Company, , 1898. A Research into the Subconscious Nature of Man and Society. With an Introduction by Prof. William James… Octavo. Publisher's dark blue cloth, mid-blue surface-paper endpapers. Cloth just a little rubbed at the extremities, front hinge slightly cracked and repaired, light toning, but a very good copy. 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. An uncommon book in nice condition.

A very attractive copy and uncommon in such excellent condition. Relates his exploits with the Malakand field force, led by Sir Bindon Blood, on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897, based on Churchill's despatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail. As Churchill was still in India when the book was published, the final editing was undertaken by his uncle Moreton Frewen, husband of Clara Jerome, Jennie's elder sister, resulting in numerous small errors which were corrected the following year in the Silver Library edition.

        La Lithographie originale en couleurs. Couverture et estampe de Pierre Bonnard.

      - Paris; publication de L Estampe et l affiche, 1898. First edition. 22,5x19 cm. (2), 43, (2, 3 blanks) pp. + lithographed frontispiece. Later tan boards with black leather label on spine. Both wrappers preserved. The spine label has slightly worn edges. Foot of spine is a bit bumped, and there is a 9 cm long crack in lower front joint. The rear wrapper is insignificantly soiled. Contents are very fine. The frontispiece and the front wrapper are both lithographies by Bonnard. The book was printed in 1000 copies, of which 200 were numbered copies on Holland paper, and 800 unnumbered copies on vellum paper. This copy belongs to the latter group. Only Mellerio perceived color lithography as the most consistent common denominator of the avant-garde, regardless of philosophical or aesthetic bent symbolist, pointillist or realist. His book systematically supported this view with critical analyses of the work of more than forty artists while documenting the publishers, the printers, and publications which promoted the medium. (Cate and Hitchings, The Color Revolution. Color Lithography in France 1890-1900, pp. 74). Because of its cover and multi-color frontispiece, this book is often considered the first French livre de peintre with original color lithographs. (Hofer, The Artist & the Book, 1860-1960, pp. 26).
