        The Yellow Wallpaper. in New England Magazine (January 1892): 647-57

      - Original brown cloth publisher's binding with gilt to spine. Crown and foot of spine gently rubbed. Text block tight and clean. Internally complete with the exception of a single excised leaf (page 33-34) not affecting Gilman's short story. Overall an excellent copy of this pivotal literary work, frequently listed as one of the most important examples of American fiction by a woman. Scarce in first edition, the volume containing The Yellow Wallpaper has appeared twice at auction in the last 20 years.At a slim 6,379 words, Gilman's short story is psychologically dense and immediately made an impression on the American literary canon. Narrating a woman's struggle with postpartum depression, The Yellow Wallpaper exposed readers to the struggles faced by a multitude of wives and mothers during the Victorian period. As a result of her husband and brother both diagnosing her with "a slight hysterical tendency," the female protagonist tells readers she is "forbidden to 'work' until I am well again. Personally, I disagree with their ideas. Personally, I believe that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me good.I think sometimes if I were only well enough to write a little, it would relieve the press of ideas and rest me." Gilman commented in an interview two decades later that the story was based largely on her own series of psychological breaks that resulted when she was allowed to give birth to children but was blocked from giving birth to her ideas through writing. The Yellow Wallpaper became influential in and out of its own field, raising questions about the treatment of mental illness among women, exposing the dangerous social expectations that limited women to domestic roles, and revealing the chilling prose ability of its author. By the time of The Yellow Wallpaper's release as a separate text in 1899, Gilman's career had come to include fiction and non-fiction, and she became an outspoken advocate for women's political and economic equality.

        Heiteres und Ernstes aus dem Soldatenleben eines alten Officiers.

      Troppau Verlag von E. Weyrich Witwe (Inhaber Adolf Hein) 1899 original Leinenband, Rundumgoldschnitt, 8°, VI, 232 Seiten; Zustand: Fadenheftung etwas gelockert, Vorsätze etwas fleckig, sonst gut Vorwort: Wenn ich mich in schon vorgerücktem Alter entschloß, meine Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen während einer fast dreißigjährigen Dienstzeit niederzuschreiben, so verfolgte ich dabei hauptsächlich den Zweck, jüngeren Kameraden einen Einblick zu geben, wie es vor mehr als vierzig Jahren in der Armee aussah und wie sich die Verhältnisse bis unmittelbar nach dem Feldzuge 1866 geändert, gebessert haben. Manches, was hier erzählt wird, dünkt heute kaum glaublich. Ich will mit der Veröffentlichtung meiner Erlebnisse außerdem den Zweck erreichen, daß von Seite der Herren Vorstände von Veteranen- und anderen patriotischen Vereinen den jüngeren Mitgliedern nahe gelegt werde, wie viel günstiger sich für die Angehörigen der Armee die Verhätlnisse gegen früher gestaltet haben. Wenn auch die physischen und geistigen Anforderungen heute mitunter gegen früher bedeutendere sein mögen, so wir zugegeben werden, daß das Ertragen von Strapazen dem Soldaten durch zweckmäßige Adjustierung und Ausrüstung und was die Hauptsache, durch die menschenwürdigere Behandlung leichter gemacht wird; weiters dürfte durch die Veröffentlichung meiner Erzählungen manches bisher unwichtig Beurtheilte - und das betrifft Nordböhmen, als den im Feldzugsjahre 1866 stark betroffenen Theil - aufgeklärt werden. Indem ich somit meine Mittheilungen der Öffentlichkeit übergebe, sollen dieselben mit der ergebenen Bitte begleitet sein, es möge das Urtheil über manches darin Vorkommende wohlwollend sein gegenüber dem Verfasser.

        AIDS TO SCOUTING For N.-C.Os & Men

      London: Gale and Polden. 1899. First edition. First edition. Publisher's limp red cloth covers, titles printed in black to the upper and lower panels, and in manuscript to the spine. 32mo (115mm x 95mm). 138pp. Page with General Sir Redvers Buller on The Value of Scouting dated December 1899 and press opinions to the reverse present before the title page. 8 pages of publisher's adverts, front and rear incorporating the underside of front and rear cover. A very good copy, the binding a little rubbed and lightly marked. The contents are entirely complete and without loose or torn pages showing only the occasional light finger mark to the margin and some dye bleed to the text block edge from the covers. A decent example in entirely original condition of this fragile and important volume, Scarce thus. On Baden Powell's return to England in 1903 and discovering that Aids to Scouting had sold 100,000's of copies and was being used as a teaching aid in schools and youth organisations, he decided to re-write it specifically for a youth readership. The result “Scouting for Boys”, published in six instalments in 1908, went on to be one of the best-selling books of the 20th century. The author retired from the Army in 1910, founding The Boy Scouts Association and the Girl Guides. We assume this to be a slightly later issue of the first edition as it incorporates a single page of press opinions (admittedly as in every copy of the first edition we have seen). The first edition point is generally considered to be the author's rank printed on the cover and title page (in 1897 the author was promoted to Brevet-Colonel and as the youngest Colonel in the British Army given command of the 5th Dragoon Guards in India; Returning to South Africa and after the Siege of Mafeking he was promoted to Major-General in May 1900). In the first edition the author's rank is Bt-Colonel, all later editions give his rank as Major-General or General on the title page and upper cover. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

She was a member of the Women's Tax Resistance League, a group associated with the Womens Social and Political Union that used tax resistance to protest the disenfranchisement of women during the British women's suffrage movement. The Duchess died aged 71, in March 1937, three months before Amelia Earhart's death, after leaving Woburn Abbey in a DH.60GIII Moth Major (G-ACUR), that crashed into the North Sea off Great Yarmouth; her body was never recovered.

        La Mosquee du Sultan Hassan au Caire.

      Imprimerie de L’Institut Francais d’Archeologie Orientale, Cairo 1899 - Folio. (50 x 40 cm), [4], 34 pp., 20 plates on green percaline, of which 3 on double-sided, one in colour, 9 illustrations within text, title printed in black and red ink, published by the "Comité de Conservation des Monuments de l’Art Arabe". In the 19th century, the state of preservation of Arab-Islamic monuments in Egypt deteriorated rapidly. In order to counteract this process, in 1881, Khedive Tawfiq founded the Comité de Conservation des Monuments de l’Art Arabe. In the same year, the Austrian architect Max Herz was employed as a draftsman by Franz Pasha, the director of the Technical Office of the Ministry of Religious Endowments (Waqf). Herz was later appointed as chief architect, and subsequently held several positions including director of the Arab Museum in 1892 (Islamic Art Museum), and in 1901 became director of the Comité. Throughout his career in the Egyptian civil service, Herz developed a reputation that led him to being honoured with the title Bey in 1895 and later Pasha in 1912. Although decisions were taken collectively in the sessions of the Comité, which consisted of both Egyptian and European scholars, Herz played a decisive role in the Comité, which soon extended the sphere of its activities to monuments of Coptic architecture too. For over a quarter of a century, Herz played an outstanding role in the preservation of monuments of Arab-Islamic and Coptic architecture. We are indebted to him for the survival of a number of monuments, while in the case of restored monuments it was he who more or less determined the form in which they appear today. Max Herz was an outstanding historian of architecture, and his publications are worthy of our attention, because they were written by a highly gifted and well educated specialist who lived among the monuments of Cairo over the course of 35 years, in everyday contact and continuous interaction with them. He subjected many of them to interventions of varying degrees, ranging from thorough examination to complete reconstruction. Among Herz’s publications is his monograph on the mosque complex of Sultan Hasan. Ever since it was built in the mid-fourteenth century, the complex of al-Nasir Hasan has dazzled those who have seen it, from contemporary chroniclers, to travellers through the ages, to modern scholars. In praise of the complex, alMaqrizi writes: "There is no sanctuary of the Muslims, known in the lands of Islam, that equals this jami‘ and its dome, the likes of which has not been built in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, North Africa, or Yemen." Both Ibn Taghribirdi and Ibn Shahin describe it as an edifice with no equal in the whole world and one of the wonders of the world. Among Western travellers, both Pietro della Valle and Jean Thevenot, who visited Cairo in the 17th century, proclaimed it the most impressive jami‘ they had ever seen. In modern times, the fascination with this complex began with Max Herz’s art historical study. With the aim of launching an early type of ‘media campaign’ to pave the way for the complete reconstruction of one of the most important monuments of Arab-Islamic architecture in Cairo and perhaps in the entire Islamic world, in 1899 Herz published this folio-size monograph on the mosque complex of Sultan Hasan, a publication which retains its importance to this day and on which many subsequent studies have been based.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1899 - 1899 Original Hardback Wisden, Very Good Condition

      1899. 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.

        THE CONJURE WOMAN

      1899. Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1899. Original brown cloth decorated in black, white and orange. First Edition of this Afro-American writer's first book, a series of seven dialect stories about incidents of slavery, told as reminiscences by an old black gardener. Examples are "Po' Sandy," "Mars Jeem's Nightmare" and "Sis' Becky's Pickaninny." Later in the same year, Chesnutt's biography of Frederick Douglass was also published. Chesnutt, who grew up in Fayetteville NC and ultimately returned there as a school principal, was actually mixed-race: his paternal grandfather was a white slaveholder, and though he claimed to have more white than black ancestry (and could probably have "passed" for white), he identified himself as a black man -- or "colored" in the language of the time.~This is a near-fine copy (spine a little darkened, rear endpaper slightly cracked). Pioneer that he was, in recent years Chesnutt has become a very highly-collected author. Provenance: booklabel and signature of H[arry]. L[egare]. Watson of "Sunnyside", Greenwood SC: it was actually not until 1906 that Watson purchased this 1851 estate (named in homage to Washington Irving) -- at which time Watson was editor and publisher of Greenwood's newspaper the Index-Journal, chairman of Greenwood's public school system, and a trustee of Furman University.

      - Wiesbaden, Verlag von J.F. Bergmann, 1899, Folio (403 x 305 mm), (2), 29 von J. Oeller gezeichneten feinen lith. Farbtafeln, mit je einem Blatt Tafelerklärungen (58 pp.), in Halbleinenmappe der Zeit mit Deckelbroschur; frisches Expl. FUNDUS OCULI - EIN PRACHTVOLLES BILDERWERK ERSTE AUSGABE eines "prachtvollen und lehrreichen Werkes". - Hirschberg "Nach mühevollen Vorstudien habe ich sämtliche Abbildungen, die nur meinem eigenen Krankenmateriale entstammen, selbst nach der Natur gezeichnet und (auf Leinwand in Öl) gemalt. Die Universitätsdruckerei und Kunstanstalt von H.Stürtz in Würzburg hat in der ebenso schwierigen. wie sorgfältigen. Wiedergabe der Originale eine Höhe der künstlerischen Reproduktionsfähigkeit bekundet, der jeder Fachmann die unbedingteste Anerkennung wird zollen müssen. von Seiten des Verlegers, trotz des großen finanziellen Risikos, keine Opfer gescheut wurden dem Werke auch eine Ausstattung zu geben, wie sie bisher wohl wenige derartige Werke aufzuweisen haben. Und so glaube ich mich der Hoffnung hingeben zu können, mit meinem Atlas. ein Werk geschaffen zu haben, das sich Freunde erwerben und unserer Disziplin den gehofften Dienst leisten werde. Die ungezählten Stunden ehrlichen Fleisses und angestrengter Geduld wären dann reichlich belohnt." - Dr.Oeller, aus dem Vorwort (Teil A). Die Figuren sind in ca. 10facher Vergrößerung dargestellt. Der Text ist in Deutsch und Englisch.--- Der vollständige Oellersche Atlas kostete beim Erscheinen den enormen Preis von 100 Goldmark. Das Werk ist nicht nur einer der größten und schönsten Atlanten der Ophthalmoskopie, sondern auch ein Markstein einer vergangenen, künstlerischen Farbdrucktechnik. Johann Nepomuk Oeller aus Obernzell in Niederbayern, Augenarzt und Künstler, promovierte 1877. Er eröffnete 1878 eine Praxis in München, habilitierte sich 1879, wurde 1899 a.o. Professor, um 1901 als ordentlicher Professor nach Erlangen zu gehen. Der Oellersche Atlas ist in 5 Lieferungen mit ganz unregelmäßiger Tafelpaginierung herausgekommen. Die einzelnen Tafeln sollten nach vollständiger Auslieferung in 5 Krankheitsgruppen (Augenhintergrund - Sehnerv - Netzhaut - Aderhaut und Anomalien), mit jeweils durchgängiger Tafelnumerierung, geordnet werden. Später wurden vom Verlag offensichtlich aber auch einzelne Mappen mit nach den genannten Krankheitsgruppen geordneten Tafeln verkauft. Diese Umstände erschweren die Kollationierung des Gesamtwerkes. Dies mag auch der Grund sein, weshalb sich fast alle angebotenen Exemplare des Oellerschen Atlas bei genauer Durchsicht als unvollständig erweisen. Durch einzelne, am Markt auftauchende Lieferungen können die meisten Exemplare jedoch später vervollständigt werden. Oeller, professor at Erlangen, is known for his large 'Atlas of Ophthalmology'. It was Oeller's intention in publishing the present atlas to provide lithographic plates of greater detail and more intense color, and to update the text with the most recent observations made since the publication of the first part of Jaeger's 'Beiträge zur Pathologie des Auges' more than forty years before. The plates were lithographed after Oeller's own oil sketches by the art institute and press of the university of Würzburg. The explanatory text for each plate is provided in both German and English (translated by A.H.Knapp). The quality of the pictures is excellent.
