Wilde, Oscar
London: Leonard Smithers and Co, 1899. Signed limited large-paper edition of the author's masterpiece, number 68 of 100 copies signed by Oscar Wilde on the limitation page. Octavo, original pale purple cloth, gilt title to the spine, gilt floral motifs from designs by Charles Shannon on spine and covers, edges untrimmed. From the library of Harrison K. Ford with his bookplate to the front pastedown. In near fine condition. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Contemporary reviews all praised the play's humour, though some were cautious about its explicit lack of social messages, while others foresaw the modern consensus that it was the culmination of Wilde's artistic career so far. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play. The successful opening night marked the climax of Wilde's career but also heralded his downfall. The Marquess of Queensberry, whose son Lord Alfred Douglas was Wilde's lover, planned to present the writer with a bouquet of rotten vegetables and disrupt the show. Wilde was tipped off and Queensberry was refused admission. Soon afterwards their feud came to a climax in court, where Wilde's homosexual double life was revea … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

ÉDITION ORIGINALE. CELUI-CI, 1 DES 50 EXEMPLAIRES SUR JAPON. Il a été tiré en outre 250 exemplaires sur papier de Hollande. Les Quatre Évangiles est le dernier cycle romanesque conçu par Émile Zola de 1898 à sa mort en 1902. 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.

Schiller 21. The first edition of Father Goose was published on September 25, 1899. To the astonishment of Hill and the delight of Baum and Denslow, it was so quickly sold out that a second edition of ten thousand copies was printed on October 16. By Christmas, 75,700 copies had been run off to meet the demand. On a single day, December 18, 1899, there were sold 3,934 copies. Nor did interest in the book die with the holiday season. During 1900 this best seller required the printing of an additional thirty thousand copies, and the Tribune reported in June, 1900, that "Father Goose, His Book last year achieved the record of having the largest sales of any juvenile in America." Father Goose with his old-fashioned skirted coat and twinkling eyes, like a comic Ben Franklin, was popular alike with the public and the book reviewers. "Father Goose is the new philosopher of the cradle and the fireplace," wrote the Times Herald. "As he comes in fancy masquerade, with clever yarns, bright ditties and assurances … [Click Below for Full Description]

Richard Ferdinand Graf von Rambaldi
1899. 8vo. [4], 165, [6] pp., every page filled with manuscript. Divided into 6 sections of verse, lyric, drama, and prose, with 11 small vignette drawings of which two are hightened in watercolor. Numerous annotations and revisions in the text. Bound in contemporary roan leather with pewter clasp (back of clasp slightly loose), some rubbing along binding extremities; floral endleaves patterned in green and gold, all edges gilt. Front pastedown with a few illegible letters in ink, apparently backwards (offset from a note loosely inserted?), small negligible ink stain on lower right corner on final 10 leaves and the back endleaves, foxing on pp. 41-48. A fascinating literary manuscript from a known WWI German officer, providing insight into pre-war German nationalism and culture. ALL writings contained herein are apparently unpublished. The manuscript is divided into 6 sections: Historische Gedichte (pp. 1-18), Patriotische Gedichte (19-21), Lyrisch (22-30), Erzahland (31-42), Dramatischer Versuch (43-86), and Verschieden (87-131). A further group of verses follow (132-165), with one additional prose section (166-171). Annotations and corrections throughout in pen and ink suggest that this is indeed the original manuscript for the bespoke writings. The manuscript begins with verses on the subject of Germany's rebirth ("Patriotischer Prolag zu Deutschlands Wiedergebunt"), in which "Kriegers" from the German War of Liberation in 1813, the Austro-Prussian War in 1866, and post-unification in 1871 discuss the evolution of Germany and German nationalism.

One of the most satisfying and entertaining of New York-related books that covers the entire landscape -- history, culture, architecture, its society, high and low -- shortly after the formation of the city as we now know it, with the merger of the five boroughs just one year before publication, in 1898.This book was issued to celebrate that event, but it is far, far more than a souvenir. In its comprehensiveness and authoritativeness, it remains a highly usable fount of information about aspects of the city both then and at times, surprisingly, today. There are probably no other books that alone can transport one back to the turn of the twentieth century in Gotham as seamlessly as this work, and its achievement literally towers over the vast literature about the city that has accumulated ever since.

Spanish-American War]: [African-Americana]
Kurz & Allison, Chicago, 1899. Chromolithographic print, 19 1/4 x 25 1/4 inches. Slightly trimmed on right and left sides, small portion at upper left repaired. Backed on tissue. Withal, very good. An evocative chromolithograph depicting the storming of San Juan Hill by two units of Buffalo Soldiers during the Spanish-American War. Four African-American regiments, comprised of about 2,000 troops, fought in Cuba in 1898. Portions of three Buffalo Soldier regiments, numbering about 1,250 soldiers, participated at the Battle of San Juan Hill on July 1. By most objective accounts, the African-American soldiers fought bravely and decisively that day, though immediate reports of the battle were clouded by the self-aggrandizement of Theodore Roosevelt and the misplaced emphasis on the successes of his Rough Riders. More recent scholarship has rightfully recognized the contributions of the Buffalo Soldiers to the American success in Cuba, including their vital efforts at San Juan Hill. It is now readily accepted that Roosevelt and his Rough Riders stormed San Juan Hill largely after the battle was won by a force comprised of other units, including African-American soldiers, a viewpoint that can be seen in the present lithograph, printed just a year after the battle. The present scene shows dozens of African- American soldiers fighting their way to the stone wall in front of the fort at San Juan Hill, which has been breached by some of their fellow soldiers. A few of the soldiers are shown dead or wounded, as about thirty Buffalo Soldiers died during the battle. The scene is ultimat … [Click Below for Full Description]

STRIKING GLASGOW-STYLE ART NOUVEAU BINDING OF DARK BLUE MOROCCO, PERHAPS BY MARY SIM (stamp-signed "M. S." and dated "1906" on rear turn-in), covers with geometric gilt tooling and brown calf onlays extending from the raised bands, spine with calf onlays flanking raised bands, gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, all edges gilt.PMM 367b; LeMire A-94.01. For the binding: Tidcombe, "Women Bookbinders," p. 176. A little rubbing to calf onlays at joints, but A FINE COPY, PRISTINE INTERNALLY, in a well-preserved binding.Printed in the Golden type designed by William Morris for the Kelmscott Press, this book, from a lecture delivered to the Working Men's College in London, is cited by "Printing and the Mind of Man" for vindicating Morris' claim that "good design should be extended to objects for use as well as objects of art." Our binding might have been made with that maxim in mind. It is likely the work of Mary E. Sim, noted by Tidcombe as one of the Scottish women in the Glasgow area whose bindings were pictured in "The Studio" and "Art Journal." Unfortunately, says Tidcombe, "none of them produced many bindings or bound for very long." Our binding is a pleasing example of the unusual Glasgow Art Nouveau style, with far more geometric shapes and sharp angles than designs in that genre from the Continent.[Attributes: First Edition]
