        Wie es Licht geworden

      E. Pierson's Verlag, Dresden und Leipzig 1898 - 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) Size: Oktav (bis 22,5 cm) [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Stanford White, architect of the Quadriga atop Brooklyn's Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch, writes to the bronzes' sculptor Frederick W. MacMonnies in Paris that "nobody has yet turned up from Barbedienne," the French foundry that produced the bronzes

      New York, New York, August 30, 1898. 8" x 10.5". "Typed Letter Signed ""aff[ectionatel]y / White,"" 1 page, 8"" x 10.5"". On McKim, Mead & White letterhead, New York, August 30,1898. To sculptor Frederick W. MacMonnies, Paris. Salutation ""Dear Mac"" in White's hand. Fine condition.In full, ""The bronzes for the Quadriga have arrived, but nobody has yet turned up from Barbedienne, Wont you go to Allard & Son's, 29 Rue de Londres, and ask to see a little head of Velasquez, which Boldini sent me a wild telegram about, and which I bought on the telegram and a photograph which had been sent over? Please do this as soon as you can, and let me know what you think of it.""The Soldiers' and Sailors' Arch at the Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, New York, across from the main entrance to Prospect Park at Flatbush Avenue, is a triumphal arch dedicated ""To the Defenders of the Union, 1861-1865."" Olmstead and Vaux, the landscape architects of Prospect Park, in collaboration with architect Stanford White, designed the Arch. General W.T. Sherman spoke at the laying of the cornerstone in 1889 and President Grover Cleveland spoke at the 1892 unveiling.McKim, Mead and White recommended bronze status and, in 1894, Frederick W. MacMonnies was hired by the City of Brooklyn to design the bronze sculptural groupings. MacMonnies added Army and Navy sculptures and the allegorical crowning sculpture atop the Arch. It depicts three female sculptures, the winged goddess of victory in the center following victorious combat with instruments of war and the Quadriga representing the Union Army: two winged female attendants are seen removing two of the four Quadriga horses for peacetime use while trumpeting the victory and emancipation. The Quadriga was cast in Paris at the LeBlanc Barbedienne Foundry.The November 6, 1898, edition of the New-York Tribune pictured ""Brooklyn's Quadriga … Being Placed on the Memorial Arch…"" The February 12, 1899, edition of The New York Times reported ""The Quadriga of Frederick MacMonnies has been placed upon the Soldiers and Sailors' Memorial Arch at the main entrance to Prospect Park, Brooklyn … It is a colossal bronze group representing the triumph of American arms and the dignity of the Nation … This great work of art was placed upon the arch recently without any ceremony attending it … The work was to be completed by MacMonnies in two years in Paris, where he now resides. The sculptor, however, took four years to finish the group to his satisfaction…"""

        Tuya, Other Verses and Translations from Jose Marti

Contemporary owner's name repeated on front and rear fly leaves, slight soiling, a nice, near fine copy. Poems of the war in Cuba by a woman about whom little is known (the contemporary *New York Times* review speculated that she is Cuban), but probably more importantly this meager translation (about a dozen pages) is one of the first translations of Marti's verse into English, just three years after his death. Marti, a Cuban patriot-poet was killed in battle trying to gain Cuban independence from Spain, and is considered one of the great Latin-American intellectuals, a modernist poet, and a Cuban national hero. Very uncommon. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE KLONDYKE NUGGET. By S.F. Cody.

      Belfast, Ireland: David Allen & Sons, [1898]. - Chromolithographic poster, 20 x 30 inches. Losses and tears along bottom edge, not affecting image; several small tears at other edges. Some light soiling. Image bright and fresh. Promotional flyer for a local theatre pasted to right edge. Good plus. A rare poster for the popular stage play, THE KLONDYKE NUGGET, written and performed by S.F. Cody throughout the British Isles at the end of the 19th century. Samuel Franklin Cody (1867- 1913) was a unique figure in late Victorian Anglo-American popular entertainment. Born Samuel Franklin Cowdery, he later changed his surname to capitalize on the fame of Buffalo Bill Cody, even mimicking Buffalo Bill's clothing and facial hair style. Born in Texas, S.F. Cody trained in the Forepaugh Wild West Show, and found much of his fame in England. He is renowned in the history of aviation as the first man to conduct a powered flight in England, and he later developed large kites that were used for artillery spotting during World War I. Cody's life was filled with tall tales (though some of them are perhaps true), including his claim that he prospected for gold in Dawson City during the Klondike Gold Rush. That story set the groundwork for the theatrical play advertised herein, where Cody plays the role of George Exelby; Lela Cody, his (common law) second wife, the part of Rosie; and her son, Edward LeRoy, plays Joe Smith. The poster shows Cody at the center, surrounded by an angry mob wielding guns. To the left are four other figures, including Lela and an Indian on horseback. An ad for the Clarence Theatre in Pontypridd is pasted to the right side of the sheet, dated Monday December 19, indicating that the play runs through the week.

        War of the Worlds, The

      London: William Heinemann, 1898. First Edition of One of the Most Enduring Science Fiction Novels in the English Language WELLS, H.G. The War of the Worlds. London: William Heinemann, 1898. First edition, with state B thirty-two page publisher's catalogue. Octavo (7 7/16 x 5 1/16 inches; 189 x 194 mm.). viii, 303, [1, blank], 32 pp. publisher's catalogue headed "Illumination". Publisher's gray cloth lettered in black on front cover and spine. Publisher's mark in black on back cover. Small, very slightly lighter area at top of spine, minimal rubbing of color at foot of spine, bare minimum of foxing to the top edge only. Still one of the finest copies we have ever seen, the end-papers clean and fresh, the black lettering fresh and sharp, the inner joints absolutely untouched. This story was the touchstone for Orson Welles' classic radio show about the invasion of the Martians. At 8:00 pm. on the evening of Sunday October 30th, 1938 the world was scared out of its wits. Millions of Americans had their radios turned on. But most of these Americans were listening to ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and his dummy "Charlie McCarthy" on NBC and only turned to CBS at 8:12 p.m. after the comedy sketch ended and a little-known singer went on. By then, the story of the Martian invasion was well underway - the listeners really believed that Earth was being invaded by the Martians… "Occurs with and without an inserted publisher's catalogue. Two states of inserted publisher's catalogue at rear, priority as listed: (A) 16 pages; dated Autumn mdcccxcvii. (B) 32 pages; page [1] headed ILLUMINATION." (L. W. Currey). "…The War of the Worlds depends more on political than scientific premises for its power… what animates War of the Worlds is use of a scientific premise - the possibility of an encounter with a more technologically advanced civilization - to create a fundamental shift in political perspective whereby readers are shown what it is like to be on the receiving end of an imperial enterprise. We are made to see for a change how it would feel if they did it to us… any self-righteous impulse to condemn the Martians is countered by reminders of European wars of extermination against Tasmanian and other natives" (Alkon, Paul K. Science Fiction Before 1900, p. 47-48). "Wells recounted the genesis of his story several times: He was walking with his brother Frank in the Surrey countryside when the conversation turned to the Aborigine inhabitants of Tasmania, south of Australia, who were eradicated when the English transformed the island into a prison colony. What if some beings from another planet suddenly dropped from the sky, his brother wondered, and did the same to England?" (Kowinski, Wm. S. San Francisco Chronicle, June 5, 2005). Its contemporary political subtext aside - and now all but forgotten - the enduring popularity of The War of the Worlds rests with it being a ripping good yarn, a scare the bejesus out of us story, and, perhaps, a post-modern cautionary tale about the overuse of antibiotics: without the earthly bacteria that ultimately destroyed them, we'd have all been entrees a la carte on the Martians' banquet table. Hammond B5; Currey p. 526; Wells 14.
