        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire Année complète 1898 EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Bureaux de la Revue, 1898. Fine. Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1898, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding editor to bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, gilt small iron and double gold in net queue.Douze numbers from January to December 1898. conservées.Chaque number Covers Edition is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Boylesve Rene, Henri Ghéon, André Gide, Francis Jammes, etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine owned by the first wave of small magazines Symbolists. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular contributors, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), the Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. The Hermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time as the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] which deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his state of mind symbolist, employees are more interested in poetry than novel. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, says that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddles the fin de siècle aestheticism and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1898. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de René Boylesve, Henri Ghéon, André Gide, Francis Jammes, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

        Tales of Unrest

      London: T. Fisher Unwin,, 1898. Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine, top edges gilt, preserved in a green cloth chemise and slip-case. Title page printed in red & black. Boards a little rubbed, spine slightly rumpled. a few leaves with portions of the fore-edge torn away (having been carelessly opened). First edition. A significant association copy that commemorates the literary and personal friendship of Conrad and his editor at Unwin, Edward Garnett (1868-1937): with Garnett's ownership inscription at the head of the title page and with a few marginal pencillings, presumably in his hand. "In 1894 Garnett accepted Joseph Conrad's first book, Almayer's Folly [for Unwin], and persuaded him not to go back to sea but to write another. Conrad, though eleven years his senior, nevertheless deferred to Garnett's authority; and Garnett's considerable influence on Conrad's work, which is revealed in Letters from Conrad (1928), is perhaps his greatest contribution to literature" (ODNB). Garnett had read Tales of Unrest in proof. Also present is an autograph letter signed from Conrad to Garnett, in which Conrad advises Garnett on the final draft of the latter's essay "The Contemporary Critic" which he had submitted to Blackwood's Magazine in late 1899 and which was eventually rejected in 1901, despite Conrad's mediation with the publisher (2pp., no place, no date, portion torn from top corner of page 1, apparently at an early date, published in Letters from Joseph Conrad 1895-1924). Also present is a salutation ("Dearest Edward") and the initials "JC" in Conrad's hand affixed to the front free endpaper.

        Expedition S.M. Schiff \"Pola\" (Tiefsee-Exedition). A. Forschungen im Rothen Meere. B. Forschungen im Östlichen Mittelmeere. Reihen 6-14 in zus. 9 Bänden (= komplett für die Forschungsergebnisse im Roten Meer).

      Wien, C. Gerold / Hof- und Staatsdruckerei bzw. ab Reihe 9 bei A. Hölder, 1898-1931. 30 cm. zusammen ca. 2000 Seiten und zus. 45 meist gefaltete Karten, 117 Tafeln und 189 Textabb. Orig. Verlagseinbände: Orig.-Halbleinenbände mit montiertem Umschlag, die letzten beiden Bände in Orig.-Broschur. *Enthält die wissenschaftlichen Ergebnisse der Österreichischen Tiefsee-Expeditionen und ozeanographische Forschungen im Roten Meer und im östlichen Mittelmeer. Die Reihen 1-5 (hier nicht vorhanden) behandeln das östliche Mittelmeer, die Reihen 6-14 (hier vollständig) behandeln die Erforschung des Roten Meeres sowie einige wenige Ergänzungen zum östlichen Mittelmeer. - Dem Zeitalter der großen Entdeckungen folgten im 18. Jahrhundert eine Vielzahl von detaillierten Entdeckungsreisen und im 19. Jahrhundert wurden auch die entlegensten Gebiete der Erde besucht, vor allem aber gab es eine Vielzahl von zumeist staatlich finanzierten wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen und Forschungs-Expeditionen. Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts war die Erde an ihrer Oberfläche nahezu vollständig \"entdeckt\" und bekannt. Dem großen Enthusiasmus und Forschergeist blieben nur noch die Tiefen unter der Erde bzw. unter dem Meerspiegel. Die Bedeutung des Meeres und ihrer unter dem Wasser liegenden Schätze waren ebenso evident wie auch geheimnisvoll. Eine dieser großen Tiefsee-Expeditionen gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts waren die Österreichischen Expeditionen des S.M. Schiff \"Pola\" in das östliche Mittelmeer (bis 1894) und nachfolgend in 2 Reisen in das nördliche und südliche Rote Meer (1895/98). Die Publikation der wissenschaftlichen Ergebnisse dieser 2 Expeditionen in das Rote Meer liegen hier vollständig vor in den Bänden 6-14 der Berichte der Commission für ozeanographische Forschungen. Der Schwerpunkt lag auf der zoologischen Erforschung, daneben gab es aber auch umfangreiche meteorologische, geodätische, geologische, botanische, chemische, und physikalische Untersuchungen, Wasserproben etc. Neben der Tiefsee wurden auch die Küsten von Südarabien (Jemen), Sokotra, Sudan, Ägypten, Arabien, Levante, Kleinasien und Libyen besucht und erforscht. Der Reisebericht (erzählender Teil) wurde separat in 2 Bänden veröffentlicht von Paul Edler von Pott (ein Exemplar momentan ebenfalls lieferbar). Die Publikation ist mit großem wissenschaftlichem und verlegerischem Aufwand (hervorragendes Karten- und Abbildungsmaterial) über einen Zeitraum von fast 40 Jahren in kleiner Auflage für wissenschaftliche Kreise und Bibliotheken herausgegeben worden. Trotz entsprechend hoher Preise, die für eine Privatperson meist unerschwinglich blieb, war eine solche Publikation nur mit Hilfe beträchtlicher finanzieller Mittel des Staates Österreich möglich. - Abgesehen von kleineren Lagerspuren (wenige Einbände gelegentlich etwas berieben, ein Vorderdeckel fleckig, Bezug der Innendeckel teils etwas wellig) sind alle Bände unbenutzt und in guter Gesamterhaltung. - The scientific results of the important oceanographic expedition in the Mediterranean and Red Sea, called \"Pola Expedition\". The available volumes 6 to 14 are complete for the contributions on the Red Sea. Deals mainly on the zoological results but also on botanic, water, chemical and physical investigations of deep waters and coasts of Arabia, Egypt, Yemen and Sinai - published in a time of about 35 years. Contains 45 maps and 117 plates in best quality. Orig. publ. half cloth, the last 2 vols in orig. wraps. One front cover stained, but in all a good and unused copy. Complete for the part of the Red Sea (vols 1-5 deals with the results in the Eastern Mediterranean). [extra shipping, large weight]. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        [MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF ARTHUR L. MORROW, COVERING HIS TRIP AND SOME OF HIS TIME SPENT AS A KLONDIKE GOLD RUSH STAMPEDER AND PROSPECTOR]

      [Various locations in Alaska, including Sitka, Unalaska, and Schieffelin Creek], 1898. Approximately [110]pp. plus various folded clippings stored in the rear pocket. Contemporary leatherette folding diary, with original matching pencil. Minor wear, mostly clean inside. Very good. A brief but important record of travel, life, and work in Alaska during the height of the Klondike Gold Rush. The diary was kept by Arthur L. Morrow of Auburn, Maine, and is signed by him on each side of the first leaf. The initial pages contain names and addresses of contacts and expenses dated Nov. 18, 1900, with occasional notes on the calendar from Jan. 2, 1898. The entries begin in earnest when Morrow leaves Maine for the Klondike on May 11, 1898. What follows are brief but regular details of Morrow's lengthy overland trip through Montreal, Chicago, St. Paul, Dakota, the Rocky Mountains ("it was a grand sight"), the Cascade Mountains ("the grandest scenery of all"), Seattle, and then by boat to Vancouver, arriving in Sitka in late June. Upon landing in Sitka, Morrow writes on June 28: "Have been ashore and there are many curious and interesting sights - the ancient Russian cemitary [sic], the Greek church and Indians. Went fishing this A.M. Caught 9 fine fish." After a few days in and around Sitka, Morrow and his party leave for Dutch Harbor, Unalaska, where they spend a couple of weeks in July, mostly fishing. The group continues to St. Michael, Alaska. Here, Morrow departs with a small boating party up the Yukon River, passing Indian villages, where he observes that they are "making good progress though the river is very crooked, have to go a long way round to get a short distance...stop at Russian mission, see lots of natives. They are very filthy, several lay dying in a tent with pneumonia." Morrow and his group arrive in September at "Sheflin Creek" [Schieffelin] in the Rampart Mountains to begin prospecting. The group sets up winter camp, and busies themselves with making sleds, shooting at bear when they are not busy prospecting on claims. On September 8, Morrow writes: "Go out prospecting all day - do not find any sign of Gold." October 7, he again comments on the lack of success in the Yukon: "Go up a small creek 6 miles have hard days work find no indication of Gold." Towards the end of October, and into early November, Morrow is laid up with an abcess under his arm. By November 4, he is well enough to make the sled trip to his next destination at Bear Creek, and then he heads for the final location mentioned in this diary - Morlock Creek. Before arriving there, Morrow reports on a meeting held in camp on November 21, where the members of his "Association" [read prospecting outfit] "voted to release Henry Burbe from Asso. give him 1/2 claim No. 5 on Bear Creek, 1 claim on Aurora Grande & his share of provisions." The next day, Morrow's final entry reads, "Start for Morlock Creek 20 miles down river." On the terminal pages of the journal, Morrow has scribbled lists, including prices for supplies, some entries that seem to be IOUs, and names of companions including R.O. Howard, H. Ward, Saucire, Talbot, Boule, and Mackenzie. Some ephemeral items stored inside the rear pocket include freight receipts from the Boston & Alaska Transportation Company and Central Wharf shipping lines, a brief supply list, a check stub from a transportation company, and a single page of a letter to Morrow, which he has used the verso of as a supply list, with costs. An interesting Klondike Gold Rush diary from the height of the stampede, covering a vast amount of Alaskan territory in a seven-month span.
