Longnon, Auguste Honoré
Paris: No Publisher Named, 1894-1899. First Edition, First Printing. A Very Good set of four small volumes (each measuring approximately 6 3/4 inches X 4 1/2 inches), each consisting of notes taken (presumably by a student) at lectures given by Auguste Honoré Longnon at Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes in Paris, one of France's Grands Etablissements, a set of schools considered to be among France's most prestigious research and higher education institutions. The notes are written in blue ink with some of the notes written over pencil notes previously taken, presumably from another class. The Volumes are in Very Good condition with some damage to the spines, are hand-numbered "I", "II", "IV", and "V" and hand-titled "Noms de Lieu" or "Noms de Lieux" (each title meaning "Place Names"). French Historian and Archivist Auguste Honoré Longnon was known for his research in France's historical geography who, in 1886, was made a member of the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres (a French learned society devoted to the humanities). Longnon died in 1911 and his work on France's Place Names was published in the 1920s as "Les noms de lieu de la France; leur origine, leur signification, leurs transformations" and was issued in five parts. A Very Good set of works containing original notes from lectures given by Auguste Honoré Longnon, perhaps the greatest expert and historian of France's Place Names. RARE INDEED. Very good.

L. Frank Baum
1899. The condition overall is fair compared to age and others listed here on eBay. First let me say I know very little about this book The information I have shared was found on the internet so please ask any questions and I will try and get the answer. I have read that it is the plates that are highly valued as much as the book itself. This book has 23 of the 24 plates. It is missing plate 17 where Toto has the lions tail in his mouth and the wizard is talking to Dorthy, the scarecrow and the lion. The binding is poor but most pages are still attached. A few of the books pages have tears but overall compared to others I have seen listed on eBay, they look good. I have given a more detailed description of the plates. I also am selling the first edition Dot and Tot by Baum and will list it as soon as I can. I think if you ask me a question I can attach more photos if you want to see a particular plate or area of the book. Plate 1, title page, still attached, looks good. Plate 2, no longer attached, has small tear in top of page but the rest looks good. Plate 3, still attached, looks good. Plate 4, still attached, looks good. Plate 5, still attached, looks good. Plate 6, still attached, looks good, has what might have been a bit of food or something spilled, upper right Plate 7, no longer attached, looks good, outside edge a little rough. Plate 8, still attached, 1/2" x 1 1/14 piece missing at very top of page. Plate 9, no longer attached, looks good, outside edge a little rough. Plate 10, still attached, looks good.

Pamela Colman Smith
Robert Howard Russell, 1899. Collectible first and only printing of Pamela Colman Smith's compilation of Jamaican folk tales featuring the African folktale character Anansi, in turn a central character in Caribbean folklore. The stories point steadily to obeah, a system of black magic practices outlawed under British rule and are accompanied by Smith's, let's say, creepy illustrations, 25 in all, which are the first known depicting Anansi. Text in Jamaican patois, also the first known use of this dialect in print and reminiscent of the Brer Rabbit stories. Smith was something of a renaissance woman, a complex mingling of writer, artist, editor, publisher, suffragette and theater designer, perhaps most famously known for her illustrations commissioned for the Rider-Waite tarot deck. Bound in pictorial brown paper over olive-green cloth and printed on coated stock. Complete as issued. Rare. 79 pp. 12 3/8" x 9 1/2". Tight, ex-library copy with two University of Detroit library stamps, a withdrawn stamp, and a card pocket mounted on terminal pastedown. Moderate rubbing and several small surface tears to front and back panels. Corners bumped. Two creases to front panel bottom right corner. Edges mostly worn through. Hinges superficially split. Internals bright and clean with small closed tears to several margins, not affecting illustrations or text. Not the prettiest thing at the dance but an extraordinarily important contribution to both children's literature and Jamaican folklore not often landing in the marketplace.

Illustrations hors texte à l'aquarelle par Eugène Courboin. Paris, Henry Floury, 1899 1 volume in-folio (32,5 x 25,5 cm), en feuilles (débroché), 63 pages, 1 illustration à mi-page et 15 illustrations à pleine page tirées hors-texte. Le premier plat de couverture est présent mai sali. Exemplaire à relier ou à conserver tel quel. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. TIRAGE A 500 EXEMPLAIRES. CELUI-CI, 1 DES 50 EXEMPLAIRES DE LUXE SUR PAPIER DU JAPON. Voici un livre finalement assez peu connu d'Octave Uzanne. Une fiction littéraire assez courte, écrite en hommage à deux héros : d'une part Angelo Mariani et son vin tonique, pour lequel ce conte est écrit ; d'autre part en hommage au célèbre grognard bourguignon, le Capitaine Coignet. Il est assez étonnant de constater que personne parmi les critiques et autres bibliographes ou chroniqueurs littéraires du temps n'a fait le rapprochement pourtant si évident entre le personnage fictif du Capitaine Hauteroche et le Capitaine Coignet. Le détournement d'une réalité historique par Octave Uzanne est une évidence qui saute aux yeux de celui qui sait lire entre les lignes de cet aimable conte des guerres de l'Empire, hommage aux Vieux de la vieille. Si dans le conte d'Uzanne le vieux grognard tient un débit de boisson et de tabac à Vendôme, c'est à Auxerre que le vieux grognard Coignet tenait un débit de tabac. Le jeune Uzanne l'a bien connu dans sa prime jeunesse bourguignonne (lire notre article à ce suj … [Click Below for Full Description]

From "The Beacon Biographies" series. With decorative end papers, a frontispiece portrait of Douglass (with protective tissue paper), an elaborate title page, calendar of important dates, and a brief bibliography for further reading. The book is small in size - it measures 5 3/4" tall x 4" wide."The aim of this series is to furnish brief, readable, and authentic accounts of the lives of those Americans whose personalities have impressed themselves most deeply on the character and history of their country. On account of the length of the more formal lives, often running into large volumes, the average busy man and woman have not the time or hardly the inclination to acquaint themselves with American biography. In the present series everything that such a reader would ordinarily care to know is given by writers of special competence, who possess in full measure the best contemporary point of view."Condition:Clean interior with only some random small foxing spots; name/date (1899) written in pen on the front end paper...no other writing found. Tight binding with no cracks and no loose pages. Old bookshop label affixed to the front end paper. Overall the book is in very good condition.

Beethoven, Ludwig Van. (1770-1827)] Joachim, Joseph. (1831-1907)
1899. Impressive original large engraving depicting Joachim seated in a three quarter length pose. Published by Casper of Berlin, 1899, and bearing an engraved musical quotation of the Beethoven Violin Concerto in the lower border. Signed by Joachim in pencil with his name alone to the lower border. 14.5 x 20 inches, mounted to 20 x 26 inches overall. Fine.Beethoven composed his Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61, in 1806. Its first performance by Franz Clement was unsuccessful and for some decades the work languished in obscurity, until revived in 1844 by the 12-year-old Joseph Joachim with the orchestra of the London Philharmonic Society conducted by Felix Mendelssohn. Throughout his long and storied career, Joachim made Beethoven's concerto a signature piece, and soon violinists everywhere began to play it. Joachim would also write several concertos of his own and inspire his long-time friend Johannes Brahms to compose one as well.  Since then, of course, the Beethoven has become one of the best-known and loved of all violin concertos.

John Wisden
Hi, This lot is an 1899 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the fourth year of the hardback and an extremely hard copy to find, especially in this condition. Since 2006 I have seen 6 for sale and one of those was without a plate. The front board is very clean with excellent gilt, the rear board is pretty much mark free and the spint gilt is very bright. There is a very outside chance that the 18 of 1899 has been regilded on the spine but I may be being paranoid. The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns in top condition, two small nicks to the front right. The photoplare is very good and internaly a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. A rare Wisden in superb condition and a very nice price.

Winston S. Churchill
London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1899. Hardcover. This is the first printing of the Silver Library edition of Churchill's first book. The Story of the Malakand Field Force recounts Churchill's experiences while attached to Sir Bindon Blood's punitive expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. Publication of the first edition of 1898 was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. In part because of the errors in the first edition which so vexed Churchill, the publisher also issued a second edition less than a year after the first in January 1899. This Silver Library edition was the first to incorporate the author's corrections in the text, making this an important and highly collectable edition. Unfortunately, the maroon boards proved highly susceptible to fading and wear, the paper easily browned and became brittle, and the binding often cracked. This first Silver Library edition, first printing - one of just 1,440 copies – is in better than very good condition. The binding is clean and tight with sharp corners and only light shelf wear to extremities. Shelf presentation is quite good, the cloth showing only the slightest, uniform toning and a trivial forward lean. The contents are unusually bright for the edition, with the customary age-toning only apparent at the perimeter blank margins of the pages. Even the page edges are atypically clean.

[Cuban Land and Steamship Co.]
[New York, c.1899]. Details below. All Very Good to Near FIne. C.1899 Group of Cuban land development promotional literature issued by the Cuban Land and Steamship Co. of New York City, the first American colonizing effort in Cuba after the Spanish-American War; several items unrecorded. By promoting American investment in post Spanish-American War Cuba and the development of agricultural land on the northern coast near the port of Nuevitas, the steamship company would profit thereby as a vital transportation and freight-shipping link to and from the island. Central to the company's colonization plan was the sale of land and dividend-paying stock in the company and the establishment of the planned city of La Gloria-"The First American City in Cuba." The archive contains color and uncolored maps of Cuba and La Gloria, a broadside touting the investment scheme by a former Michigan State Senator now representing the Cuban Land and Steamship Co., a "FAQ " sheet and other handouts for investors, a promotional booklet, a steamship excursion brochure, etc. The American colony of La Gloria was established in 1899-1900; by 1913 there were 64 such colonies in Cuba. "La Gloria represented one of nearly three dozen attempts at US colonization in Cuba between the end of the Spanish American War and 1903. The first settlers were 300 men, who left for Cuba on the Yarmouth steamship on December 31, 1899. The Cuban Land and Steamship Company (Compañía Cubana de Tierra y Vapor) of New York was in charge of selling plots from 10 to 40 acres....the settlement lasted until the 1950s."¹ Inst … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il est inachevé puisque seuls les trois premiers romans de la série, Fécondité, Travail et Vérité ont été publiés. Justice, le dernier projet du romancier, n'a été qu'ébauché. Fécondité, le premier opus du nouveau cycle, est un roman dans lequel Zola expose ses thèses natalistes. Zola avait exposé ses thèses natalistes dans un article en 1896. Il y évoquait le projet d'un roman sur ce thème, provisoirement intitulé Le Déchet dans lequel il se proposait de s'élever contre la limitation volontaire des naissances qui provoquait selon lui « une tragédie morale et sociale ». La natalité était en effet à la veille de la Revanche, une problématique nationale.

Barton, Clara
1899. Signed photograph of Clara Barton wearing a Red Cross collar pin, boldly signed by Clara Barton. Published by Mathew Brady of Washington, D.C. Matted and framed. The photograph measures 4.25 inches by 6.5 inches. The entire piece measures 12 inches by 14.75 inches. In fine condition. Photographs signed by Clara Barton are rare. Clara Barton was a pioneering nurse who founded the American Red Cross. She was a hospital nurse in the American Civil War, a teacher, and patent clerk. Nursing education was not very formalized at that time and Clara did not attend nursing school. So she provided self-taught nursing care. Barton is noteworthy for doing humanitarian work at a time when relatively few women worked outside the home. "The Red Cross as it is known today is largely as Barton defined and developed it... The most decorated woman in America, she counted the Iron Cross, the Cross of Imperial Russia, and the International Red Cross Medal among her trophies yet... in 1899 a campaign began in earnest to unseat her from the Red Cross presidency. Barton fought back stubbornly, enduring devastating personal attacks and focusing her energy on creating a final humanitarian gift: the concept of first aid, which culminated in the founding of the National First Aid Society" (ANB).

Roma, Luigi Mangini Editore 1899-1909. Diciassette saggi in un volume di cm. 24, pp. 1.300 ca. complessive. Legatura del tempo in piena tela con titoli in oro su tassello in pelle. Trascurabili segni del tempo, peraltro esemplare nel complesso ben conservato. Friedrich Engels (1820 - 1895), celebre filosofo ed economista tedesco, fondò insieme all'amico Karl Marx il socialismo scientifico, attraverso la scrittura a quattro mani de L'Ideologia tedesca (1846) e del Manifesto del Partito comunista (1848). Teorizzò il materialismo dialettico basandosi in particolare sull'impostazione critica in chiave materialista dell'intera storia umana. Figlio di un proprietario di grandi fabbriche tessili in Inghilterra e Prussia, ricoprì un ruolo di spicco nei movimenti comunisti, socialisti e operai del tempo. Fu anche capo politico sia della Prima Internazionale (1864) sia della Seconda Internazionale (1889). Alcune opere di importanza capitale per la storia dell'economia ottocentesca sono presenti in questa raccolta: La sacra famiglia (scritto insieme a Karl Marx nel 1845); La condizione della classe operaia in Inghilterra (1845); L'evoluzione del socialismo dall'utopia alla scienza (1880); La guerra dei contadini (1850); Per la questione delle abitazioni (1872); Le condizioni dell'Inghilterra. Lineamenti di una critica dell'economia politica (1844). Questo è il dettaglio delle rarissime 17 prime edizioni italiane raccolte nel presente esemplare: Savoia, Nizza e il Reno (1860). Roma, 1908.
