This copy has the 1897 ad catalogue, indicative of the first state. Joseph Conrad (1857?1924), was a master mariner and author. Considered a manifesto of literary impressionism, and the greatest of his early works, Conrad sums up his intention well in a preface added to subsequent editions: "A work that aspires, however humbly, to the condition of art should carry its justification in every line. And art itself may be defined as a single-minded attempt to render the highest kind of justice to the visible universe, by bringing to light the truth, manifold and one, underlying its every aspect. It is an attempt to find in its forms, in its colors, in its light, in its shadows, in the aspects of matter and in the facts of life what of each is fundamental, what is enduring and essential-their one illuminating and convincing- quality -the very truth of their existence."

        PROCES-ZOLA: OVERZICHT VAN DEN GANSCHEN LOOP VAN DIT PROCES

      Amsterdam: N. J. Boon(1898). 1st Edition. Modern Cloth. 8vo. 62 pages ; 18 cm. In Dutch. Title Translates into English as, "The Zola Trial: Overview of the Whole Course During this Trial. " Note that the author: "Een Dagbladredacteur" simply means "A newspaper editor, " and is otherwise anonymous. This original Dutch account of Zola's involvement in the Dreyfus affair was published in the same year that Zola published, "J'accuse, " in the French papers. "Zola risked his career and more on 13 January 1898, when his 'J'accuse' was published on the front page of the Paris daily L'Aurore. The newspaper was run by Ernest Vaughan and Georges Clemenceau, who decided that the controversial story would be in the form of an open letter to the President, Félix Faure. Zola's 'J'Accuse' accused the highest levels of the French Army of obstruction of justice and antisemitism by having wrongfully convicted Alfred Dreyfus to life imprisonment on Devil's Island. Zola's intention was that he be prosecuted for libel so that the new evidence in support of Dreyfus would be made public. The case, known as the Dreyfus affair, divided France deeply between the reactionary army and Catholic church, on one hand, and the more liberal commercial society, on the other. The ramifications continued for many years; on the 100th anniversary of Zola's article, France's Roman Catholic daily paper, La Croix, apologized for its antisemitic editorials during the Dreyfus affair. As Zola was a leading French thinker and public figure, his letter formed a major turning-point in the affair. Zola was brought to trial for criminal libel on 7 February 1898, and was convicted on 23 February and removed from the Legion of Honor" (Wikipedia, 2016) . Includes an illustration of Zola on the title page, and illustrations throughout of Dreyfus, and some of the other key players in the affair. OCLC list just 5 copies worldwide (Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Gronigen, Tresoar, and the University of Oxford) , none in the Western Hemisphere, and only 1 outside of the Netherlands. Paper is browning but overall in about very good condition. (Dreyfus-7-1)

Grunwald hoped that Jewish Volkskunde would preserve a record of a disappearing way of life and, by demonstrating the beauty of traditions and encouraging their revival, help stem the tide of assimilation; he also hoped that by showing the connectedness of Jews to other peoples and their universal values, Jewish Volkskunde might counteract anthropological characterizations of Jews as an immutable and degenerate race" (YIVO encyclopedia 2010) .

        1898 Theodore Roosevelt Typed Letter Signed, as Governor-Elect

      1898 - This letter, on Republican State Committee letterhead, was written on November 22, 1998, a scant two weeks after Roosevelt had been elected Governor of New York. The brief letter is addressed to "My dear Mr. Trautman," and reads: "I have arranged with Mr. Holls to arrange a meeting of the gentlemen you mention. I particularly want to see you. You may rest assured that I shall take no steps in the matter until I have had a full talk with you." Whether Roosevelt was being purposefully oblique due to the nature of "the matter" or if he was merely using shorthand between friends who were both familiar with the topic at hand is a mystery at this point. Closing the letter "Faithfully yours" in a typical manner, Roosevelt signed as "T. Roosevelt." Ralph Trautmann, a New York lithographer and printer, was a friend and advisor of Roosevelt's. In 1900, Roosevelt appointed Trautmann a Commissioner of the Palisades Interstate Park. As President in 1903, Roosevelt appointed Trautmann to his Ellis Island Commission. Frederick William Holls, also a longtime friend and advisor of Roosevelt's, was a lawyer and expert in international law and negotiation. Holls was a member of the New York Constitutional Convention in 1894 and Secretary of the US Delegation to the International Peace Conference at the Hague in 1899. Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) was, of course the 26th President of the United States. Prior to that, he was Governor of New York from 1899-1900 before leaving to serve as McKinley's Vice President. Other roles held during his long and varied career included naturalist, explorer, author, soldier, and police commissioner. Typed on a single page of Republican State Committee letterhead, measuring 11" x 8.5". Roosevelt signed his "T. Roosevelt" in black ink. Condition: Fold lines and a couple of tiny stray inkspots. Generally in very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Waverley Novels (Twenty-four Volumes) With introductory essays and notes by Andrew Lang.

      London: John. C. Nimmo and Macmillan and Co., Limited. 1898-1906 - Twenty four volumes. Large type Border edition. 8vo (195x130mm). Maroon half morocco, red cloth boards. Five raised bands, decorated with tripled rule line and thistle device. Compartments with single ruled line border. Lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt. Marbled endpapers. A beautiful binding in excellent condition with some rubbing and shelfwear to extremities. Contents are in fine condition. Some pages unopened. Foredges untrimmed. Illustrated throughout with very good engravings. The Large Type Border Edition is one of the most attractive of the very many Scott editions with its clear type, wide margins and excellent engraved plates and in this handsome binding this is a very attractive set. The Border Edition was an update on the Magnum Opus edition (the first full and the definitive edition of Scott's works) with new material researched by Andrew Lang and was published by two different publishers in the 24 Volume Edition, John C Nimmo (1898-1900) & Macmillan (1900-1906). This is set is made up of volumes from both editions but as the format is identical (apart from the publishers' details on the title page) this does not affect the quality or the attractiveness of the set. Lang was perhaps the foremost champion of Scott's work at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. In addition to this edition of the novels, he published an edition of the Poems and Ballads, a biography of Scott and the celebrated defence of writer in his "Sir Walter Scott And The Border Minstrelsy".

        God's Prisoner / The Story of a Crime a Punishment a Redemption (SIGNED FIRST EDITION, AUTHOR'S FIRST NOVEL)

      Hurst and Blackett, Limited, London 1898 - Dated "24.ix.98," inscribed to Mr. Will Dean and signed "John Oxenham" in a small hand to top of blank FFE. This copy is intact but well used and "good only," still well bound but with cloth fraying to head, heel, & rear edge of spine, & some narrow gaps developing between the (sewn) signatures. Book smells slightly musty (it's from England), but not objectionably so. Original green cloth boards with titles to front and spine in red and black. The first of many novels from William Dunkerley (1852-1941) writing as John Oxenham (the pen name taken from Charles Kingsley's novel "Westward Ho!") His poetry includes "Bees in Amber: a little book of thoughtful verse" (1913), which became a best seller. Dunkerley served as deacon and teacher at the Ealing Congregational Church, west London, from the 1880s. He then moved to Worthing, Sussex, in 1922, where he became the town's mayor. He was a major contributor to Jerome K. Jerome's "The Idler" magazine. In this title, a murderer, "whose soul is God's Prisoner, but whose body is free," summarized The Bookman in 1899, "wanders . . . from end to end of the earth, seeking the peace that can never be found. But, after a time, he does find a measure of relief in doing good and in self-sacrifice -- where real happiness must perhaps always be found." With 21 pp. publisher's advertisements at rear. 331 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
