Wells, H.G.
London: William Heinemann, 1898. Octavo, 303pp. original gray cloth, uncut. First issue Currey’s state (A) (Currey, 426) with 16 pages publisher’s advertisements at the end dated Autumn 1897. An attractive very good copy with slightly darkened spine and minor bruising at the board tips and virtually no wear. Housed in a matching quarter Morocco clamshell case by the Heritage bindery. "Wells' finest piece of sustained imaginative writing" (Bergonzi, 123), The War of the Worlds is the archetypal tale of alien invasion. Inspired by his brother Frank's wondering how English civilization would fare if "beings from another planet were to drop out of the sky suddenly and begin laying about them here," and informed by his own misgivings about the British Empire's destructive policies in Tasmania, Wells created a gripping, immediately popular "tour de force whose innumerable fictional offspring include numerous adaptations and homages, by far the most effective of which was Orson Welles' Mercury Theater radio broadcast of 1938" (Anatomy of Wonder II-1234). Wells' haunting vision of a mighty society abruptly brought low—as well as his appeal for "anticipation, education, and the concerted efforts of the species" in meeting formidable challenges (Smith, 67)—has never failed to find appreciate audiences. First printed serially in Pearson's Magazine (April-December 1897). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

J.H. Everhart [John H.Everhart]
[Santiago [de Cuba], July 20, 1898]. [7½]pp. Autograph Letter Signed. 8vos. and 4tos. Letter accomplished in pencil on two types of stationery. Accompanied by transmittal envelope postmarked "Santiago de Cuba, Ysla de Cuba, T 2" and franked in pencil "Soldier's letter collect." Folds; some wear to envelope; very good. First-hand account of the bloody Battle of San Juan Hill by Private John H. Everhart of the 71st Regiment, New York Volunteers. Everhart mentions encountering ".the wounded from [Theodore] Roosefelt's [sic] troop." and describes his own wounding by an exploding shell. The lengthy letter, written to a young woman in Pennsylvania, sheds light on the controversial role of the 71st New York Regiment who did not participate in the actual assault on the hill because of a confusion of orders and the fact that they were pinned down by enemy fire. Private Everhart describes landing in Cuba on the night of June 23 and 24, 1898 and the ensuing Battle of San Juan Hill on July 1: "We started through the mountains. We had no idea what was ahead but after we had marched a few miles we began to meet the wounded from Roosefelt's [Roosevelt's] troop. We were hurried on but when we reached the field the Spanish had retreated and we were ordered back to town where we staid [sic] several days.We were ordered out on July first.

KRIEGER, Johann Nepomuk
Triest: Privately Printed, 1898. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (315 x 257 mm), with photogravure of Krieger's observatory and 28 photolithographed plates, each with a transparent key overlay. Original three-quarter cloth with publisher's printed boards. Only very little soiling and age-toning, overlay tissue guards browned as usual, inner hinges starting. A fine, crisp copy. ----- Ashworth, The face of the moon, Linda Hall 27 (ref.) - FIRST EDITION. Krieger (1856-1902) 'was a gifted draftsman, but he realized that it make little sense to spend time drawing features that the camera could record. So he had the brilliant idea of adding the finer details by hand at the telescope. The resulting maps of selected craters were not equaled until the U.S. Air Force began issuing its own series of photobase lunar charts in the 1960s. 'Krieger published the first volume of his drawings in 1898; it contained twenty-eight plates. Due to overwork, his health broke shortly thereafter, and he died before the contemplated second volume could be issued. His manuscripts were taken over by Rudolf König, and the remaining drawings were finally published in 1912. 'The posthumous publication contains one of the most impressive drawings of the crater Gassendi ever made. Gassendi has always been a favorite object for observers, because of the intricate rill system on the crater floor' (William Ashworth, Jr, The face of the moon, Galileo to Apollo, n 27 (1912 vol only). - Visit our website to see more images!

MALLARMÉ, Stéphane
[Paris]: [September, 1898]. 4" x 5" approx. card, letterpress printed on recto, with black borders on both recto and verso, the latter otherwise blank. Mild wear at edges. Near fine. Stark and haunting card of mourning from the September 10th, 1898 funeral of Stephane Mallarmé. Mallarmé had died two days earlier after a gruesome coughing fit in front of his doctor and horrified family. A similar episode days before had so shaken the poet that he wrote the infamous letter found after his death instructing his family (some of the same family listed on this card) to destroy his archive ("Brûlez, par conséquent: il n'y a pas là d'héritage littéraire, mes pauvres enfants"). His funeral was an intimate affair: "On a brilliantly hot Sunday afternoon, guests began to arrive. [They] made their way down into the small garden path where his coffin has been placed [...] in the shade of the chestnut tree which Genevieve [his daughter] had planted when she was a young girl. Famous writers and artists rubbed shoulders with local peasants [...] Once all the guests had assembled, the funeral cortege made its way first to the little church in the neighboring village [...] Then, after a simple ceremony, Mallarmé was buried next to his son Anatole in a little cemetary close by [...] Henri Roujon made an emotional speech [...] Paul Valery [...] was too upset to speak" (Millan, A THROW OF THE DICE: The Life of Stephane Mallarme, p. 318-19). Given the small scale of the service, we cannot imagine many of these cards were printed, with even fewer surviving. Indeed, our research suggests it is unre … [Click Below for Full Description]

NAPIER, Theodore.
[Edinburgh: Lorimer and Gillies] for [the author] in Edinburgh: 'Balmanno' and London: R. Stewart Meade, 1898. 4to in half sheets (235 × 200 mm), pp. 31, [1], plus portrait. Ornaments to text. Printed on thick laid paper. Original limp red roan, upper cover lettered in gilt. Small paper shelf label. Inscribed: 'To Her Most Gracious Majesty The Queen from Her loyal Subject the Author', additional inscription by the recipient: 'Matia Theresa'. A fine copy. First edition, dedication copy, inscribed by the author to 'The Queen', that is, the Jacobite claimant of the British Crown, Maria Theresa of Austria-Este (1849-1919). Theodore Napier (1845-1924), Australian-born of Scottish emigrant parentage, became one of the most colourful Scottish patriots and advocates of the Jacobite succession. Adopting full Highland dress and sporting an extravagant white beard he raised eyebrows in Melbourne and Edinburgh alike and he issued a stream of pamphlets advocating Scottish home rule and the Jacobite succession. The frontispiece here depicts Maria Theresa, with the caption: 'Who, but for the Act of Settlement, would now be reigning as Queen Mary III. of Scotland, and IV. of England and Ireland.' The pamphlet was issued as number 17 of the publications of the Legitimist Jacobite League of Great Britain and Ireland, but appears here as an offprint (without reference to the series) on thick paper. Maria Theresa was the niece and heir of the childless Francis V, Duke of Modena who had been, at the time of his death, the Jacobite heir-general to the thrones of England, Scotland and Ireland; a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Soeben erfahre ich, daß in der zweiten Hälfte des Januar hier, aus Anlass mehrfacher hoher Besuche bei Hofe, eine Reihe von musikalischen Veranstaltungen bei Hofe gegeben werden sollen. Meine Bremer Pläne sind dadurch arg gekreuzt, da ich bei diesen Veranstaltungen unmöglich abwesend sein darf." - "1880-1903 war M. Hofkapellmeister in Karlsruhe, zugleich bis 1892 auch Dirigent des Philharmonischen Vereins, 1893 wurde er Generalmusikdirektor. 1886-1906 dirigierte er häufig in Bayreuth, 1894-1900 mehrmals in Paris, Brüssel und London (dort u. a. Wagners „Ring des Nibelungen"). Von November 1903 bis April 1904 war er Gastdirigent an der Metropolitan Opera in New York und in anderen amerikan. Städten, 1904-11 wirkte M. als Hofkapellmeister und Generalmusikdirektor, seit 1907 als Hofoperndirektor sowie als Leiter der Musikalischen Akademie und der Akademie der Tonkunst in München. M. war einer der bedeutendsten Dirigenten seiner Zeit. Sein Einsatz galt vor allem Wagner, Liszt und Berlioz. In seinen Kompositionen, die überwiegend vor 1880 entstanden, konnte M., wiewohl gewandter Instrumentator, kein eigenes Profil entwickeln, doch sind von seinen zahlreichen Bearbeitungen mehrere Instrumentierungen von Klavierliedern bis heute im Repertoire geblieben" (R.

CARUANA, A. A.
Malta: Government Printing Office, 1898. Malta: Government Printing Office,, 1898. In the Islands of Malta explored and surveyed from the year 1881 to the year 1897. (Copy-right Edition.) Small folio. Original drab printed wrappers. 33 lithographs mainly of cemeteries and tombs layout, including 2 folding and a folding map. Early ink ownership "E. Ingoldsby Capt. R. E." to front wrapper. Some wear and chipping to edges, a few small creases, light soiling and staining to wrappers, occasional light foxing, heavier on last few leaves; a very good copy indeed. First and only edition of this study of early funerary antiquities and practices in Malta by Dr. Antonio Annetto Caruana (1830-1905), a "pioneer in the field of Heritage Management in the Maltese islands" (Romina Delia). Caruana was an archaeologist and author, who served as Librarian and Keeper of Antiquities at the Malta Library from 1880 to 1896. In 1860, Captain Walter Strickland showed the Tal-Mintna Catacombs to Caruana who was the first to document them. He was later put in charge of 'Archaeological Explorations and Preservation of Local Antiquities' between 1880 and 1896. "Notwithstanding his positive steps towards consolidating and safeguarding the cultural heritage of the island, Caruana was a product of his time and a theological education; history to him was bound to the biblical narrative. Depending on one's interpretation, Caruana either could not or would not consider a period in Malta earlier than the Phoenicians, who figured in the biblical accounts. But no amount of Christian zeal could sustain the lin … [Click Below for Full Description]

KILBOURN, BYRON [CHIEF ENGINEER, MILWAUKEE AND MISSISSIPPI RAIL ROAD]
N.P.: Sentinel and Gazette Steam Press, 1851]., 1898. First edition. 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" in light peach wrappers though missing the front wrapper. 15 pp. Illustrations. Map. Although it eventually became a transcontinental railroad, the railroad that became the Milwaukee Road began as the Milwaukee and Waukesha Railroad, whose goal was to link the developing Lake Michigan port city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin with the Mississippi River. The company incorporated in 1847, but changed its name to the Milwaukee and Mississippi Railroad in 1850 before construction began. A report to the Board of Directors explaining that the railroad is not completed to Waukesha as was expected and offering reasons for the delay in its completion. "Considering our small beginning, only a little over one year ago - that we have relied solely on the resources of the people of Wisconsin for the means of prosecuting this enterprise - without seeking foreign aid - with only the small contributions of each of our thousand Stockholders, and the credits based on the securities of our city and citizens, we have in that time completed the grade of our Road for twenty and a half miles, laid the Track, and brought into actual use the half of that distance - and will have the whole completed, and in successful operation, by the middle of February next." Information on estimated and actual costs of the First Division, extending the road from Milwaukee to Waukesha. It appears that actual costs far exceeded estimates, "but that has been the result of peculiar circumstances under which the work has been performed, and … [Click Below for Full Description]
