        The Two Magics : The Turn of the Screw; Covering End [Signature mounted to FFEP]

      First Edition London William Heinemann 1898 First Impression (Colonial Issue, 300 copies of which were transferred for sale to the domestic market) and first appearance in book form of James's great supernatural tale, The Turn of the Screw. 8vo: [2],310pp, with clipped closing of a letter from the author ("Ever faithfully Henry James") mounted to front fly leaf. Publisher's marine blue cloth, upper cover and spine lettered in gilt. Heinemann's third standard binding (per Edel), with nine tulip buds (rather than four) blocked in blind on upper cover, issued without half title or advertisements. An excellent example, Near Fine or better, spine slightly darkened with gilt somewhat dulled, upper cover with bright lettering and attractive sheen to cloth, pages clean and crisp. Edel A52. Near Fine The Turn of the Screw first appeared in serial form (in Collier's Weekly), from 27 January to 16 April 1898, becoming an instant classic, praised by Oscar Wilde as a "most wonderful, lurid, poisonous little tale, like an Elizabethan tragedy. I am greatly impressed by it." The ODNB calls it one of James's "great successes," and one critic recently anointed it "the greatest ghost story ever written." It is a terrifying and unsettling tale, "about the apparent haunting of a governess's young charges by a pair of ghostly servants who may have contaminated their innocence (he [James] had got the germ of the story from Edward White Benson, the archbishop of Canterbury, father of James's friend A. C. Benson)." (ODNB) The novella's popularity has never waned and in this year (2013) of the centenary of the birth of the composer Benjamin Britten there has been renewed interest in his operatic adaptation. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        [Album of 173 Original Gelatin Silver Photographs of the German Colonial Kiautschou Bay Concession Titled on Spine:] Syfang-China, 1902-1904

      Oblong Folio (ca. 27x36 cm). 30 beige stiff album leaves. 173 gelatin silver prints, various sizes from ca. 21x28 cm (8 ½ x 11 in) to 9x10,5 cm (3x4 in) mounted recto and verso on album leaves. Some photographs numbered and twelve captioned in negative. Attractive period elaborately gilt tooled quarter morocco with lacquered flower motif pictorial covers with photographic image inset in front cover. Some very minor bumping to extremities of covers and front cover with a very minor chip of lacquer, a couple of photographs with some very mild fading but overall the photographs are strong and sharp and the album is in very good condition. This extensive historically important collection of photographs of the Kiautschou Bay concession (a German leased territory in Imperial China which existed from 1898 to 1914) and surrounding areas, was highly likely compiled by a German high ranking military officer or colonial official. As the spine title, Syfang (Sifang), the former core district of Tsingtau (Qingdao), indicates this album is focussed on Tsingtau, Kiautschou Bay concession's administrative center. It includes twelve captioned photographs of Tsingtau including: Train station; government chapel; Diedrichstein; Yamen entrance; Decorative wall in front of Yamen; Lighthouse; Panorama; Music pavillion Krala Bay; Prinz Heinrich Hotel; Artillery Camp; Colonial Governor's grave; Governor's House. Many other images are also of Tsingtau including five two part panoramas of the town and environs, also street scenes showing Chinese inhabitants, markets and gatherings, and ceremonies, hunting scenes with the resulting killed birds, colonial buildings and images of the Shantung Railway including railway track, trains, rolling stock, bridges and stations (Tsingtau, Nantschuan, Kaumi, Weihsien, Tschou Tsun). Overall an extensive historically important visual record of the first few years of German rule of the Kiautschou Bay concession. After Germany took over the territory in 1898 «Kiautschou was transformed into a modern realm with Germany investing upwards of $100 million. The impoverished fishing village of Tsingtau was laid out with wide streets, solid housing areas, government buildings, electrification throughout, a sewer system and a safe drinking water supply, a rarity in large parts of Asia at that time and later. The area had the highest schools density and highest per capita student enrollment in all of China, with primary, secondary and vocational schools funded by the Berlin treasury and Protestant and Roman Catholic missions. With the expansion of economic activity and public works, German banks opened branch offices, the Deutsch-Asiatische Bank being the most prominent. The completion of the Shantung Railroad in 1910 provided a connection to the Trans-Siberian Railway and thus allowed travel by train from Tsingtau to Berlin. After the Chinese revolution of 1911 ran its course, many wealthy Chinese and politically connected ex-officials settled in the colony because of the safe and orderly environment it offered. Sun Yatsen visited the Tsingtau area and stated in 1912, "... I am impressed. The city is a true model for China's future» (Wikipedia).

        Jane Avril

      Paris: Chaix, 1898. ONE OF TOULOUSE-LAUTREC'S MOST FAMOUS LITHOGRAPHS. "This famous poster advertising Le Jardin de Paris shows the high-kicking performance of the dynamic Jane Avril in the quadrille naturaliste, framed by the staff of the orchestra's bass fiddle. Vaucaire described the dance in the August 1, 1886, Paris Illustré as 'that wonderful, insolent joke in which two women advanced side by side, each balancing on one foot while keeping the other at the level of the spectators' eyes. They wore silk stockings and cambric and lace drawers, with much swishing of pretty petticoats'" (Donson and Griepp, Great Lithographs by Toulouse-Lautrec).From the Les Maitres de L'Affiche (Masters of the Poster) series, plate 110. "The Masters of the Poster, first published in Paris from 1895 to 1900, is the most famous compilation ever made of the art of the great age of the poster--an art whose new graphic sophistication captured the ebullience of Paris life in the late 19th century, and celebrated the emerging spirit of the 20th century" (Applebaum, The Complete "Masters of the Poster").Paris: Chaix, 1898. 15.5x11.25in, 395x285mm. (Image alone: 11.5x8.5in, 292x216mm). Image fine, with full, uncropped margins. Margins with two pinholes at top, tiny repaired tear at left edge and chip to bottom left corner. With original "Les Maitres de L'Affiche" blindstamp at bottom right. Handsomely framed. Very Good.

        The Decoration of Houses

      First Impression London B. T. Batsford 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. Fine 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)."

        Five Years in Siam from 1891 to 1896.

      London: John Murray, 1898. Two volumes, with 15 full-page plates, nine maps (four folding) and numerous illustrations in the text; in the original decorated cloth. An important book on late-nineteenth-century Thailand. Smyth spent some years in Thailand as director of the Department of Mines, and his well-illustrated account of the country, then under the rule of King Chulalongkorn, describes the prosperous last years free of colonial controls. 'Thailand presented a singular contrast to the rest of Southeast Asia in the late nineteenth century. Thai leaders followed policies that revealed a remarkable capacity to gain the greatest benefit from the new and intrusive element of European power' (Osborne, Southeast Asia).Within only a few years Thailand was to lose part of its country to French colonial aspirations, and in 1909 it lost four Malay states to the British. Foxing to endpapers otherwise a very good set.

        Éloge de la dynamite. Aux Rèvolutionnaires russes.

      - Milano, in «1898», numero unico edito da La Seminagine Laica, [1908]. 210x305 mm, un fascicolo di pp. 18 numerate compreso il piatto anteriore (testo e immagini b.n. n.t.), bella brossura illustrata a due colori (calco in rosso di una mano e data 1898 tracciata come con un dito tinto di rosso). Numero unico a cura del gruppo socialista "La Seminagione Laica", diretto da Comunardo Braccialarghe alias Folco Testena. Commemora la rivolta milanese del maggio 1898 a Milano, repressa nel sangue dal generale Bava Beccaris: «Quando la 'Seminagione Laica' pensò a commemorare i morti delle repressioni novantottesche [.] una sola mèta si prefisse di raggiungere: quella di dare al pubblico un breve e sintetico indice delle correnti di pensiero che solcano oggi il nostro cielo politico". Di grande interesse. Raccoglie scritti di A. Murri, I. Cappa, E. Ferrari, G. Verderami, A. Cipriani, G. Ferrero, G.P. Lucini, C. Bacci Fontebaccio, G. Podrecca, S. Merlino, E. Re, E. Leone, S. Fasulo, V. Gottardi, C. Lazzari, L. Bissolati, G. Allevi, U. Ugoini, E. Ciacchi, E. Reina, G. Ciraolo, Ricciotti Garibaldi e F. Testena. Agli scritti originali si accompagnano estratti - opportunamente ?risemantizzati? - ed è pure il caso della canzone marinettiana, il cui percorso è stato ricostruito da Berghaus, Futurism and politics, p. 41 nota 32: «It is interesting to note that [Destruction's] Canto XIII (Invocation . contre les villes) was renamed Eloge de la dynamite, when it appeared in Poesia II, 6-8 (July-Sept. 1906), and Aux révolutionnaires russes, when it was printed in La vita letteraria, vol. 3, no. 2 (16 January 1906). The "Russian revolutionairies" are, of course the anarchists, for whom he continued to have the greatest admiration». Molto bello il disegno che intesta la canzone, a mo' di rebus con una 'E' che incornicia il mezzo busto di Marinetti, e dal cui bastone superiore scende un cappio che va a scrivere "Prina"; commento: "Un educatore del popolo" (Prina è molto probabilmente Giuseppe Prina, linciato a ombrellate in piazza della Scala da una folla di cittadini il 20 aprile 1814, e da cui viene il detto "l'ha faa la finn del Prina"; fine cantata anche dal "Sogn' o 'Prineide'" di T. Grossi). Esemplare con restauri conservativi, mancanze integrate alla brossura (senza perdite significative), internamente buono. Molto raro. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Gedichte und Sprüche.

      Leipzig, Naumann, 1898. Small 8vo. Original pinted full cloth with title, author and ornamentation in brownish red to front board. Minor soiling to extremities. A bit of browning to first and least leaves. The rare first edition of Nietzsche's poems and maxims, the first complete collection of his poetry, which furthermore constitutes the first appearance of all nine, properly corrected, "Dionysian Dithyrambs" in one volume.This one of 1.000 copies printed of the first run, without "Second Edition" on the title-page, as the other 1.000 copies of the first edition had. According to Elizabeth Förster-Nietzsche, Nietzsche's sister who has assembled the present collection "[t]his collection of poems and maxims shows the entire poetic development of my brother over a period of 30 years. It begins at a time when the earliest stuttering poetical expression has been overcome and ends with the highest rising of the poetic spirit, who in order to find words can now only speak in dithyrambs." (own translation, from the Introduction, p. [XIII]). Numerous of the poems have never been printed before, and many are printed from the original manuscripts, which Elizabeth had in her possession.Though Nietzsche is primarily understood and remembered as one of the greatest philosophers of all times, his poems occupy a central place in his literary production and many of them (e.g. the Dithyrambs) are intimately linked with the philosophy, for which he is so famous today. Furthermore, the present volume underlines the popular modern view of Nietzsche as the not only philosophical, but also literary and artistic genious. Although 1.000 copies appeared, the first edition of the work is difficult to find and is rarely seen for sale.

        Admiral Duncan.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1898. Large octavo. Original quarter vellum, gilt lettered spine, grey-blue paper boards, untrimmed. Photogravure portrait frontispiece of Admiral Duncan, 2 further photogravure portraits (one with torn tissue guard), plan of the action off Camperdown. Spine rolled, toned and repaired at head, signs of handling to binding but a sound, clean and crisp copy. First and limited edition, one of 100 large paper copies "for private circulation". With two interesting autograph letters signed from the author to a Colonel Noel, one presenting this copy and the other concerning his assistance with the preparation of the book: the earlier (dated 18 March 1896 and signed "Camperdown") to "Dear Colonel Noel": "I am very much obliged to you for sending me Lady Mary Duncan's letter [aunt to Admiral Duncan] - Lady M. was very much attached to Admiral Duncan, and always was of opinion that not half enough had been thought of his victory & of him - I must however admit that I do not quite agree with her; for the Nation gave him £3000 a year, wh[ich] was continued to his two next successors!", discussing briefly Duncan's famous victory ("no doubt it was well fought; and in shoal water"), inviting Noel to visit him ("if you ever find yourself in the East of Scotland in the autumn"), and closing by saying that "It is very satisfactory to think that 100 years later our naval supremacy is much more assured than it was then" - Camperdown reproduces Lady Mary's "spirited and characteristic" letter at pages 261-63. The second ALS is a brief note (dated 7 April 1898 and signed "Camperdown") to "Dear Mr Noel": "Messrs Longmans tell me that as I desired, they have forwarded to you a copy of my Private Edition of Admiral Duncan, wh[ich] I hope you will accept - I cannot sufficiently thank you for your kind assistance"; Noel may have been a descendant of Diana Noel, daughter of Sir Charles Middleton (1726-1813), first Baron Barham, admiral of the Red - "in October 1795 it was proposed that Duncan take Sir Charles Middleton's place at the Admiralty but [Lord] Spencer declared the admiral could not be spared from the North Sea" (ODNB). Together with another ALS from E. A. Derby (Bishop Suffragan and Rural Dean of Derby) concerning Noel's illness and inability to attend a Trinity College function (dated 6 July 1895). After more than a century this remains the standard biography of one of the great British naval heroes: "Duncan's reputation for coolness, courage, and daring was well deserved... His care for his seamen earned their gratitude and affection, his courage and endurance their respect. One sailor wrote of him after Camperdown 'They can't make too much of him. He is heart of oak'" (ODNB).

The second ALS is a brief note (dated 7 April 1898 and signed "Camperdown") to "Dear Mr Noel": "Messrs Longmans tell me that as I desired, they have forwarded to you a copy of my Private Edition of Admiral Duncan, wh[ich] I hope you will accept - I cannot sufficiently thank you for your kind assistance"; Noel may have been a descendant of Diana Noel, daughter of Sir Charles Middleton (1726-1813), first Baron Barham, admiral of the Red - "in October 1795 it was proposed that Duncan take Sir Charles Middleton's place at the Admiralty but [Lord] Spencer declared the admiral could not be spared from the North Sea" (ODNB). Together with another ALS from E. A. Derby (Bishop Suffragan and Rural Dean of Derby) concerning Noel's illness and inability to attend a Trinity College function (dated 6 July 1895). After more than a century this remains the standard biography of one of the great British naval heroes: "Duncan's reputation for coolness, courage, and daring was well deserved. His care for his seamen earned their gratitude and affection, his courage and endurance their respect. One sailor wrote of him after Camperdown 'They can't make too much of him. He is heart of oak'" (ODNB). NMM, Biography, 522. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Photograph]: Sacramento Camera Club 1898

      Sepia-toned albumen photograph. Measuring 9" x 7.5" on slightly larger card leaf apparently removed from an album. Slight sunning at the edges, some light staining on the mount, not affecting the image, otherwise near fine. Labeled in ink on the mount: "Sacramento Camera Club 1898." Image of nearly 50 California shutterbugs, about half of them women, posing with cameras, many of those on tripods. On the verso of the mount is a photo of similar size and condition of a railroad locomotive in snow labeled: "Flat Wheels Blue Canyon. Jan. 1897." Some contemporary newspaper accounts seem to indicate that the Club came into existence in 1895, and exchanged images for exhibition with other clubs throughout the country. The photo of the Club is a very nice, large and relatively early image of amateur photographers. .

        In the Far East. Suite.

      Tokyo 1898 - In-4 oblong de 1 planche de titre et 21 planches, cousu à la japonaise, couverture imprimée en violine. A partir de 1895, les albums satiriques de Georges Bigot se sont surtout attaqués au jeu de la Grande Bretagne en Chine et au Japon. Après avoir été séduit par l' Allemagne, le Japon en effet, ne jure plus désormais que par l'Angleterre. Bigot (1860-1927) arrive au Japon en 1882 et s?adapte très vite au mode de vie japonais ; il obtient assez rapidement un poste de professeur de dessin occidental, à l?école de l?armée de terre, avant d?enseigner le français. Vivant de l?intérieur l?occidentalisation très rapide du Japon au début de l?ère Meiji (1868-1912), il observe cette société bouillonnante et en publie caricatures et périodiques satiriques. Cette ère nouvelle, a transformé le Japon, jusque-là régi par un régime féodal, l'a ouvert aux étrangers et introduit de grands changements. Bigot refusa la vision idéalisée d'un Japon, en marche vers le modernisme, se heurtant au gouvernement japonais de plus en plus nationaliste, qui le contraindra à partir en 1899, quelques semaines avant la suppression des concessions étrangères. Ses publication sont finalement interdit à la vente dès 1900, tandis qu'en France elle l'ont tout simplement fait oublier. Les nombreux albums de caricatures et les différents périodiques qu'il laisse derrière lui vaudront bien des années plus tard d'être reconnu comme le ? caricaturiste de l'ère Meiji". Il est considéré par la jeune génération de dessinateur de Manga, comme le père de ce genre. (Héléne Conevin, De la gravure à la caricature : le Japon de Meiji vu par G. Bigot, 1990).

        THE NIGGER OF THE NARCISSUS: A Tale of the Sea.

      London:: Heinemann,. 1898.. First UK edition of his third book. A novella written in 1896 partly based on his experiences of a voyage from Bombay to London. This edition preceded in 1897 by the U.S. edition published under the title, CHILDREN OF THE SEA. (To muddy things up a bit: Heinemann issued 8 copies for copyright prior to release of the U.S. edition, but the actual publication of this UK edition came after that of the U.S.) The novella was serialized in London in The New Review under the title "The Nigger of the ?Narcissus?; a Tale of the Forecastle" from August 1897 to December 1897. Dodd, Mead changed the title to CHILDREN OF THE SEA for U.S. publication, reportedly not because they deemed the word "nigger" offensive, but because they feared a book about a black man would not sell. However, the novella was serialized across the U.S. in periodicals 9 times in 1897 under its original name. (The word remains offensive, still it?s nice to know a story about a black man was apparently well-received.) Conrad?s preface, considered one of his most significant pieces of non-fiction writing, begins with his oft-quoted line, "A work that aspires, however humbly, to the condition of art should carry its justification in every line." Issued in three bindings, this one being the third, with a 32-page catalog bound in at end headed by Harold Frederick?s ILLUMINATION. There were only 1,519 copies in total. Spine a little darkened, spine ends and corners showing some wear, and the cheap-paper endpapers show a little offset from the binding and two small chips to front edge. Still a solid, tight, copy that is otherwise very good. .

        Wie es Licht geworden

      E. Pierson\'s Verlag Dresden und Leipzig 1898 Oktav (bis 22,5 cm) Broschur Die Nichte von Bertha von Suttner wurde als Tochter des Carl Gundaccar Freiherr von Suttner, Ministerialsekretär im K. u. K. Ackerbauministerium in Wien, und der Luise Reichsgräfin von und zu Firmian und Meggel, geboren. Sie hatte drei Brüder. - Bis zu ihrem 16. Lebensjahr wurde sie in einem Kloster erzogen, ehe sie in den Haushalt ihrer Tante Bertha zog. Der Bruder ihres Vaters, Arthur Gundaccar von Suttner, Ehemann von Bertha, hatte erheblichen Einfluss auf ihre Anschauungen. Sie lebte auf Schloss Harmannsdorf bei Eggenburg, dem Stammsitz der Suttners, schrieb Feuilletons für in- und ausländische Zeitschriften, veröffentlichte Übersetzungen und schrieb Novellen. Für Bertha war dieses Zusammenleben recht tragisch, wie man ihren Tagebüchern entnehmen konnte, da sich zwischen Marie und ihrem Onkel eine Liebesbeziehung entwickelte, die Marie in ihrem Roman \"Wie es Licht geworden\", enthüllte. Diese Dreiecksbeziehung endete erst mit seinem Tod im Jahre 1902. 1905 heiratete sie Emil von Haebler und zog mit ihm auf Schloss Gutenbüchl bei Schönstein in der Untersteiermark, heute Slowenien. Sie starb 1948. -- Erstauflage in der Ausgabe als Broschur. - Auf dem Schmutztitel mit einer privaten Widmung und signiert mit vollem Namen \"Baroness Maria Louise von Suttner\". Die Widmung war für Alfred Lorenz, ansässig in Gars am Kamp (nahe Schloss Harmannsdorf), der im selben Verlag seine Gedichte publizierte (1903). - Einband etwas berieben, Schnitt und Deckel nachgedunkelt. Alles in allem aber solides Exemplar. - Auf der letzten Seite ganz zarte Stenographie-Anmerkungen mit hellem Bleistift, wahrscheinlich von Lorenz. - (Bankverbindungen in Österreich und Deutschland) Versand D: 12,00 EUR geworden!

Pages in very nice, clean condition, no inscriptions. Set weighs nearly 4 Kilos so postage outside UK will be expensive. Hugh Stowell Scott (9 May 1862 – 19 November 1903) was a prominent English novelist who used the pseudonym Henry Seton Merriman. Born in Newcastle upon Tyne, he became an underwriter at Lloyd's of London, but then devoted himself to travel and to writing novels, many of which had great popularity. Scott visited India as a tourist in 1877–78 and set his novel Flotsam (1896) there. He was an enthusiastic traveller, many of his journeys being undertaken with his friend and fellow author Stanley J. Weyman. Scott married Ethel Frances Hall (1865–1943) on 19 June 1889. The couple had no children. Scott was unusually modest and retiring in character. He died of appendicitis, aged 41, at Melton, Suffolk. Upon his death, Scott left £5000 to Evelyn Beatrice Hall, his sister-in-law and fellow writer, best known for her biographical work The Friends of Voltaire, writing that the legacy was "in token of my gratitude for her continued assistance and literary advice, without which I should never have been able to have made a living by my pen." His first novel, Young Mistley was published anonymously in 1888. His other novels include The Phantom Future (the only novel of his set entirely in England, 1889), The Slave of the Lamp (1892), From One Generation to Another (1892), The Sowers (generally considered his best, set in Russia, where it was banned) (1896), In Kedar's Tents (1897), Roden's Corner (1898), Suspense, Dross (1899), Slave of the Lamp, With Edged Tools (a bestseller in 1894), Grey Lady, Isle of Unrest (1900), The Velvet Glove, The Vultures (1902), Queen (1903), Barlasch of the Guard (1903) and "The Last Hope" (1904). He worked with great care, and his best books held a high place in Victorian fiction.
