        The Lady of the Lake

      1898 - Full page illustrations by C.E. Brock. 8vo., bound by Gwladys Edwards, with her stamp on the recto of the front free endpaper, in full green morocco with upper and lower boards decorated with double gilt rules containing a pattern of triple gilt dots, each corner elaborated with four yellow onlay dots around a pattern of stippled gilt dots becoming denser towards the center and finished with a floral design of three red onlay petals outlined in gilt; spine with five gilt ruled compartments and one plain with lettering in gilt, double gilt ruled turn-ins with a pattern of four gilt dots in the outer corners, a.e.g. London, Service and Paton. An elegant if somewhat restrained design by Gwladys Edwards, a restraint which is either welcomed with relief or rejected with disappointment depending on ones opinion of the more exuberantwork of the Guild of Women Bookbinders. Gwladys exhibited with the Guild and is often suspected of being the same 'Miss Edwards' by whom a number ofGuild bindings are signed. Very good, the spine slightly sunned, the corners of spine and boards a little bumped, some foxing especially to the preliminary leaves, including the title page.

        A Notable Lawsuit.

      Chicago: Privately Printed, [1898]. Paperback. 12mo. Stiff wrappers, dust jacket. Illustrations. Fine/very good. Mild jacket edgewear. First edition -- and an exceptional copy it is -- of this rare survivor of which we find only a 2002 facsimile reprint. Head (1832-1914) was president of the Chicago Historical Society and a noted attorney and industrialist, but it was as founder of the tongue-in-cheek Chicago Liars Club that he published this outrageous hoax about a lawsuit, John Jacob Astor v. Frederick Law Olmstead, involving of all things Captain Kidd's hidden treasure. It's possible that even the jacket front panel year ("mdcccixvii") is in jest, as 1897 would be correctly formatted "mdcccxcvii." A subtitle that appears both on the title page and the jacket front panel, "Studies in Early American History," is also intended to convey that this title is a volume in some legitimate historical series. What's truly astonishing about this first edition is that it is in near fine condition... AND it bears a fine presentation inscription on the inner flyleaf from Head to J.H. Eckles (d. 1907), another notable Chicagoan and former Comptroller of the U.S. Currency... AND most remarkably it still has its dust jacket, which is in superb condition. The first edition almost never comes on the market, especially a choice presentation copy such as this. All in all an extraordinary copy of this rarity, a quite desirable Chicago item.

      Brooklyn, NY: Not published, 1898. Twelve handwritten letters by Mr. Le Plongeon to Alexander Hill and/or the Robert Clarke Co. dating between April 1898-May 1903, each signed by Mr. Le Plongeon. The letters relate mostly to supplying or offering to supply copies of Queen Moo, Sacred Mysteries, Queen Moo's Talisman, etc. with some publishing data (number of first edition copies published, etc.) and details about works in progress. Included are two handwritten letters by Alice D. Le Plongeon from 1885, to Robert Clarke, about her potential lecture in Cincinnati, and those of her husband on the Masons, and about works in progress "Monuments of Mayan and Yucatan," etc. Augustus Le Plongeon may be remembered for his odd theories of how the Mayan people are linked to the people of the lost city of Atlantis. He did leave us with numerous well-taken photographs of Chichen Itza, as he was the first to excavate the ruins there.. Signed. First Edition. Very good+ condition.

        S/W Porträtfotographie. [ca. 22,5 x 17,4 cm].

      Mit hds. Bleistift-Titelei auf der Rückseite. - Nach einer Fotografenlehre im Atelier Antonin Mattas in Príbram von 1898 bis 1901 besuchte Drtikol, (1883 - 1961), von 1901 bis 1903 die Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt für Photographie in München (später umbenannt in Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Lichtbildwesen und ab 1990 in Staatliche Fachakademie für Fotodesign München). Nach dem Militärdienst 1907, betrieb er bis 1935 ein eigenes Studio, zunächst in Príbram, später in Prag. 1945/46 war Drtikol Professor an der Schule für Graphik in Prag. Schwerpunkt seiner Arbeit war die Aktphotographie. In seinen frühen Werken lässt sich der Einfluss des Prager Symbolismus und "Art Nouveau" erkennen. In den 1920er und 30er Jahren prägten Stummfilm, Avantgarde und Art Deco sein Schaffen. Noch vor dem 2. Weltkrieg gab Frantiek Drtikol die Photographie auf und widmete sich fortan der Malerei. Sein Ruhm schwand und er starb 1961 einsam und vergessen. Erst in jüngerer Zeit nimmt sein Werk wieder einen hohen Stellenwert in der Geschichte der tschechischen Photographie ein. (Zitat)

        [ABORIGINES] Annual Government distribution of blankets to natives

      1898. Albumen print photograph, 150 x 210 mm, laid down on its original album leaf of thick card, captioned in the negative "Annual Govt. distribution of blankets to natives, 140, Kerry, Photo Sydney", contemporary calligraphic caption in red ink to the mount beneath the image "Blanket Distribution 24th May"; the print is slightly pale but in good condition; the album leaf has some light marks and stains to the margins. In 1898 the Sydney-based commercial photographer Charles Kerry travelled to central western New South Wales and took a large number of photographs that recorded the daily life and ceremonies of the Wailwan people on their traditional land near Quambone on the Macquarie River. The photographs included the famous and enormously popular sequence of images of the Wailwan men's Bora ceremony, later printed as postcards by Kerry and sold in large numbers. The present photograph, which from the point of view of social documentary is perhaps one of the most important in Kerry's ouevre, shows government agents distributing blankets to a group of Wailwan men, women and children on the Queen's birthday, 1898 - a token gesture of royal largesse bestowed by Her Majesty upon her dispossessed and disenfranchised Indigenous subjects. The men who appear in this photograph also took part in the special daylight Bora ceremony that was staged for Kerry's benefit.

        Manuscript on paper entitled (from the upper cover): "Technologie der mechanischen Weberei des Emil Queisser."

      76 fine pen & ink plates & illus. in the text with 308 figures. Written throughout in a fine cursive hand in black ink. 88 unnumbered leaves (of which eight are blank). Large folio (430 x 297 mm.), orig. half-morocco & cloth (upper cover rubbed), upper cover stamped in gilt. Reichenberg [today, Liberec]: 1898. Reichenberg, now known as Liberec in north-eastern Bohemia of the Czech Republic, was settled by German and Flemish migrants in the 14th century. By the 16th century, they established a thriving textile industry. Employing the water power of the Neisse River, the manufacture of cloth and the spinning, weaving, and dyeing of wool and cotton, enabled the city to become very wealthy; in the 19th century, Reichenberg was nicknamed the "Manchester of Bohemia." This handsome manuscript was prepared in 1898 by E. Queisser under the auspices of the K.K. Hochschule für Weberei in Reichenberg (later named "Staatsfachschule für Textilindustrie"). The manuscript focuses on the machinery employed in weaving. The very legible text is highly technical. After a brief history of weaving, the author describes the working parts of complex power looms in all their varieties for weaving many kinds of fabrics. The plates depict all aspects of the parts of the looms. There is a substantial section, with illustrations, on the loom of Jacquard. In excellent condition.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Thomas Mann").

      München, 22. XII. 1898. - 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-4to. Auf Briefpapier des "Simplicissimus" - Albert Langen Verlag. An seinen Jugendfreund, den späteren Kunsthistoriker und Romanisten Otto Grautoff (1876-1937): "Lieber Grautoff: besten Dank für Deinen letzten Brief, in dem wieder interessante Dinge standen. Du thust, als ob ich von der Assistentenangelegenheit schon etwas gewußt hätte. Keineswegs! Du hattest mir das letzte Mal nur den Namen des Professors K. genannt, nichts weiter. Aber es wäre wahrhaftig aller Ehren werth. K. Bibliotheksassistent! Gehören dazu nicht überhaupt 'studirte' Leute? Ich bin schon lange erstaunt und erfreut über Deine Entwicklung. Auch Deine 'Vorträge', Dein 'Buch' etc. machen mir starken Eindruck. Hast Du Dich etwa auch äußerlich so verändert? Wahrscheinlich hast Du einen großen Backenbart und eine goldene Brille? [.] Hattest Du das Gedicht, das schöne Momente hat, für den Simplicissimus berechnet? Ach, dazu ist es zu melancholisch und zu persönlich. 'Wir' brauchen aufgeweckte und überlegene Sachen . was aber 'mich' nicht hindert, ebenfalls hie und da Verse zu schreiben, wie die, welche ich Dir, trotz ihrer Unfertigkeit, vielleicht beilegen werde. - Mit meiner Prosa geht es mir besser. Fischers Rundschau bringt nächstens wieder einmal eine Novelle von mir, und auf jeder Karte 'erwartet' Dr. Bie 'in voller Spannung' meinen Roman. Sein Wohlwollen und Interesse rührt ganz einfach, und ich kann ihn nur bitten, es nicht erlahmen zu lassen, denn er muß sich noch gedulden; es fehlt noch etwa ein Drittel des Buches. Gestern Abend habe ich übrigens einen neuen Abschnitt im Familienkreise vorgelesen [.]". - Am ersten Blatt verso, um 90 Grad nach rechts geneigt, Manns von Platen beeinflusstes, vom Verfasser nicht veröffentlichtes Gedicht "Nur Eins": "Wir, denen Gott den trüben Sinn gegeben / Und alle Tiefen wies, wo Scham und Graun / Sind ewig fremd den Fröhlichen im Leben, / Die harmlos auf des Daseins Spiele schaun. // Und weil der Menschen Seele zu ergründen / Hohnvoll auch mich der Drang gefangen hält, / Will ich es euch mit schwerem Worte künden: / Erkenntnis ist die tiefste Qual der Welt. // Denn Eines ist es, was in allem Leiden / Uns stark erhält und aufrecht fort und fort, / Ein trostreich Spiel voll höchster, feinster Freuden / Den Unglückseligsten: Es ist das Wort." Unbedeutende Randeinrisse. - Nach Grautoffs Tod im Pariser Exil erwarb der Verleger Kurt Leo Maschler (1898-1986) die Korrespondenzsammlung von dessen Witwe Erna Grautoff. Nach Maschlers Flucht aus Österreich 1938 wurde der zurückgelassene Bestand von der Gestapo der ÖNB überstellt und von dieser in deren Autographensammlung einsigniert (am unteren Rand die ÖNB-Signatur von 1939: Autogr. 141/58-42). 1949 wurde die Sammlung an Maschler rückgestellt (vgl.

        Rossa's Recollections, 1838 to 1898 Childhood, Boyhood, Manhood. Customs, habits and manners of the Irish people

      Mariner's Harbor, N.Y.: O'Donovan Rossa. Very Good. 1898. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. Autograph; 402 pages; Publisher's blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. This is a particularly fine and interesting presentation copy, boldly signed and inscribed by the author - one of the most active (and extreme) of the Irish revolutionaries of the nineteenth century. The long, full title of this book of memoirs does a fair job of stating the outlines of the author's extraordinary course of life. "Rossa's recollections, 1838 to 1898. Childhood, boyhood, manhood. Customs, habits and manners of the Irish people. Erinach and Sassenach-Catholic and Protestant-Englishman and Irishman-English religion-Irish plunder. Social life and prison life. The Fenian movement. Travels in Ireland, England, Scotland and America." Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa (1831– 1915), was an Irish Fenian leader and prominent member of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. As a young shopkeeper in Skibbereen, the southernmost town in Ireland, O'Donovan Rossa founded the 'Phoenix National and Literary Society,' the aim of which was "the liberation of Ireland by force of arms." Rossa's Phoenix Society later merged with the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB), founded two years later in Dublin. He was arrested and jailed at the end of 1858 for over six months. Charges against Rossa escalated by 1865 to "High Treason" and he was convicted and sentenced to penal servitude for life due to his previous convictions. He served his time in Pentonville, Portland and Chatham prisons in England. While a guest of the English state, he won a by-election to Parliament for the seat from Tipperary constituency, but the election was set aside as Rossa was a convicted felon. He made a deal to participate in the Fenian Amnesty of 1870 by promising not to return to Ireland; the instrument of his exile became famous. He and four other Irish rebels boarded the S. S. Cuba for the voyage to America. The five men [John Devoy, Charles Underwood O'Connell, Harry Mulleda, John McClure and O'Donovan Rossa] were famously dubbed "The Cuba Five." Rossa established a base in New York City and quickly joined Clan na Gael and the Fenian Brotherhood. If anything, his revolutionary activities accelerated, as Rossa organised the first-ever bombings by Irish republicans of English cities in what was called the "dynamite campaign". The campaign lasted through the 1880s and made him infamous, to say the least, in Britain. The British government repeatedly demanded his extradition, but their efforts were denied. In 1885, Rossa was shot outside his office near Broadway by an Englishwoman, Yseult Dudley, but his wounds were not life-threatening. There were charges and counter-charges about whether or not she was working on behalf of the English government. What is beyond dispute is that Yseult Dudley, like many others, was incensed at Rossa's tactics and his vigorous and succesful organised fund raising (the so-called "Skirmishing Fund") - intended to support the arming of those who would fight the British. This self-published volume of memoirs was neither published nor distributed through normal book-publishing circles, but most likely carried around by the author on his travels and lectures on behalf of his cause. By the end of the nineteenth century, O'Donovan Rossa had moved his base of operations to Staten Island, which explains why this now-scarce book was issued from Mariner's Harbor, and old neighborhood on the north shore of the island. The boldly written inscription, entirely in Rossa's neat handwriting, nearly fills the front free endpaper and offers a tantalizing link between Rossa's specific Irish roots and his later life in America. In full, it reads: "Presentation Copy / To / Mr. Patrick Murray / of Skibbereen, Ireland / and Boston, America / In remembrance / of his kindness to / the author / O'Donovan Rossa / New York / 1898." There is reference in Rossa's text to a Patrick Murray, the husband of the author's one remaining living aunt, Bridget (at the time Rossa made his first return trip to Ireland, a couple of years before this book was published). We cannot determine whether there is a link or a relation between this Patrick Murray and the recipient of this warmly-inscribed copy, but it certainly is worthy of further investigation. It is beyond dispute, though, that Skibbereen, the small town in County Cork where O'Donovan Rossa started his revolutionary career with his 'Phoenix National and Literary Society' was especially hard hit by the potato famine [some 8,000-10,000 Famine victims are buried in the Famine Burial Pits of Abbeystrewery Cemetery]. So Skibbereen contributed a disproportunate contingent of Irish immigrants to America in the last half of the nineteenth century. Rossa made at least two trips back to Ireland late in his life, despite the terms of his participation in the Fenian Amnesty of 1870, but the most famous of his returns to Ireland was his last, when his body was brought back for burial in 1915. His funeral oration, by Pádraig Pearse is one of the most famous speeches in modern Irish history. It ended with these ringing lines: "They think that they have pacified Ireland. They think that they have purchased half of us and intimidated the other half. They think that they have foreseen everything, think that they have provided against everything; but, the fools, the fools, the fools! — They have left us our Fenian dead, and while Ireland holds these graves, Ireland unfree shall never be at peace." (It was almost certainly a direct result of this that, when Pearse and his brothers and 14 others who declared the Easter 1916 uprising were shot by the British ten days after Easter Monday, their bodies were consigned to a quick-lime pit, rather than sent back to become potentially the sources of another rousing spectacle to match O'Donovan Rossa's funeral). Rossa is unforgotten and unforgettable in Skibbereen, where there is a park named for him, as well as the local Gaelic Association football club. The extraordinary full-page inscription makes this copy of "Rossa's Recollections" very special, indeed. A nicely preserved copy tight and clean in the original binding. There is just modest wear and rubbing at the spine ends, tips of the corners and bottom edges of the boards, a small spot at the bottom of the rear cover, and faint marks to the front cover. There are no marks, apart from the inscription. ; Signed by Author; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. .

        Pure Economics.

      London: Macmillan and Co, 1898. First edition in English of the economist's classic work. Octavo, original cloth. Translated by T. Boston Bruce. In very good condition with some rubbing to the cloth, name to the front pastedown. First editions are rare. Maffeo Pantaleoni was an Italian economist who was originally a notable proponent of neoclassical economics, and was a major contributor to the Italian school of economics known as 'La Scienza delle Finanze'. According to Nobel prize winner James M. Buchanan, Pantaleoni and his followers (such as Antonio De Viti De Marco and Vilfredo Pareto) can be considered the intellectual forefathers of the modern public choice theory. He was occasionally referred to as "the Marshall of Italy", because of his unrelenting defense of laissez-faire economic policies.
