         Hunger

      Hunger - Knut Hamsun - One of the first Modernist booksHungerKnut HamsunLondon, 1899 One of the first Modernist works. A Dostoevsky-esque picture of internal strife and societal disgust. First edition in English. An important and scarce book. Original cloth with professional repairs to spine and new endpapers - half title present, no ads. The prone-to-fading gray cloth has retained its color. Considering its extreme scarcity, a desirable and good copy. One auction listing since its publication and an appearance in a 1930s bookseller catalog. A dozen copies are listed on OCLC which include those rebound and in states of disrepair. The highly influential classic of an unnamed, down on his luck writer struggling to survive in a bleak Oslo. Failing to make money writing, he falls into destitution and mental collapse. It's an amazing look into the human mind and how we struggle against our emotions, unfulfilled needs, and the masks that society expects us to readily wear to spare one another from our mutual ugliness.

         Eden versus Whistler. The Baronet and the Butterfly. A Valentine with a Verdict.

      Paris: Louis-Henry May, [1899] - Octavo. Original mustard-yellow cloth spine, drab yellowish paper boards, spine lettered in black, front cover lettered in gilt, Whistler's butterfly monogram in gilt on spine and front cover, untrimmed. Spine toned, a little wear to corners, some marks to covers, offsetting to recto of limitation leaf and verso of imprint at end, but a very good, clean, copy of a rather fragile book. Decorations by Whistler in the text. First and limited edition, one of 250 numbered copies signed by Whistler with his butterfly monogram. "Early in 1894 Whistler painted a small portrait of Lady Eden (Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, Glasgow), and her husband, Sir William Eden, sent £100 for it, which Whistler banked. Whistler exhibited the picture in Paris but refused to deliver it, and Eden instituted legal proceedings; whereupon Whistler returned the money but scraped out the figure, substituting that of an American sitter in its place, so that if he lost the case the portrait could not be recovered. At the civil tribune in March 1895 Whistler was ordered to hand over the portrait and pay damages; but after two appeals, in 1897 and 1900, Whistler was finally granted the picture and Eden was ordered to pay expenses. In Eden versus Whistler: the Baronet and the Butterfly (1899) Whistler published his account of the case, which entered French law by establishing that artists do not enter into ordinary commercial contracts of sale with their patrons" (ODNB).

         SIGNIFICANT 19th-CENTURY ARCHIVE OF THE BEACH & COOKE FAMILIES OF BRANFORD, CONNECTICUT, INCLUDING CIVIL WAR CORRESPONDENCE OF SAMUEL BEACH, 27th CONNECTICUT INFANTRY, AND HIS BROTHER-IN-LAW, SAMUEL G. COOKE, 50th ILLINOIS INFANTRY].

      Fredericksburg, Va.; Alexandria, Va.; Corinth, Ms.; other Civil War locations; various locations in Illinois and Connecticut. 1832-1899. - Approximately 200 letters, many with original transmittal envelopes, and three journals. Letters have typical folds and some fading, with mild toning. Journals somewhat fragile, two with perished spines, with some brittleness and toning to contents. Overall good to very good. A substantial archive of Civil War-dated letters and post- war journal entries written by Samuel Beach of Branford, Ct. and his brother-in-law, Samuel G. Cooke. The archive consists of approximately 200 items, including thirty-one Civil War-dated letters and one post-war journal featuring an account of the Battle of Fredericksburg written by Samuel Beach, 27th Connecticut Infantry. Also included are five pre-war letters and three war-date letters from Samuel G. Cooke, 50th Illinois Infantry and 44th USCT Infantry, in addition to over 100 family papers, documents, and letters spanning from 1832 until 1899; an 1860s farm schedule with musings about breeds of farm animals; and an 1860s ledger counting expenses from an oil mill among other places. On Dec. 13, 1862 Corporal Samuel Beach, 27th Connecticut Infantry Co. B, found himself in the middle of one of the bloodiest battles in the Civil War - Fredericksburg. He wrote in his post-war journal, penned by Beach in the 1880s: "Our troops all passed the fence coming on with every little opportunity. Like a wily tiger crouching for his prey to come within reach, [the rebels] watch and wait. The first line of the brigade are now coming to the line, and passing into the doomed area. The bursts of artillery on all the heights and the discharge of muskets from the fire and rifle pits. Was like a tremendous blow in the face." After his men faced the slaughter of the fence, they pushed forward. Beach and some of his friends from Branford sheltered themselves from the storm of bullets against a brick house. After their retreat, he went to the hospital to assess the damage and the wounded. Again, from his post-war journal: "I could hardly believe it [George Bennet] that marched along with us with the tread of a giant sat there his hair disheveled the sleeve of his coat cut off at the should and gone his arm shattered by a ball his face the picture of dismay. Our eyes met one short earnest gaze of recognition and his head dropped on his bosom then tears gushed out the great stout hearted George Bennet sobbed like a child." Beach and his friends tried to help their friend and desperately reached for his sleeve with his shattered arm, trying to clean him, while they waited for the overwhelmed surgeons and nurses to make their way towards their comrade. Beach's brother-in-law, Samuel G. Cooke was very enthusiastic about the cause and attempted to form a company at his home in Meridian, Il. In a letter from Meridian on June 29, 1861, a family friend wrote of Cooke: "[He] is one of the leading spirits. Everybody around here is full of patriotism or as Alice says everyone and their mother is full of fight." That fall, some men from Meridian, including Cooke, enlisted to be a part of the 50th Illinois Infantry, Co. A. Death soon greeted the eager young men, almost as soon as they stepped on the battlefield. Cooke wrote to Beach from Paducah on March 27, 1862: "A lady in Meridian received a letter from her husband last night the 50th were in the battle [at Pittsburgh, Tennessee]. He gave the names of the killed and wounded our boys were not mentioned so we thankfully conclude they are safe as she knows them well. One Meridian man was blown to pieces by a shell. He leaves a young wife and two little children.every field officer killed except the Major." Cooke experienced much bloodshed at the battle of Corinth. Later that fall, on Nov. 19, 1862, Cooke wrote a concerned letter to his brother-in-law from Mississippi: "We heard of hard fighting in Virginia and hope you are not engaged in it. The prospect is of another battle here soon the troops left here last night to dispute the crossing of the R___ by rebel forces supposed to be

I & II), THE COURT OF THE TUILERIES (VOL. I & II), THE FIRST OF THE BOURBONS (VOL. I & II), THE LAST OF THE VALOIS (VOL. I & II), THE OLD REGIME (VOL. I & II), OLD PARIS (VOL. I & II). 14 volume set 9 inches tall. Half maroon morocco fine binding by Mudie with the binder’s mark to the reverse of the free end paper.   Review Note: The Atheneum, February 18, 1899 "The present widespread interest in everything pertaining to French History, and the many calls for Copies of these Works, has led to the preparation of this new and complete Edition, carefully edited and well illustrated. The Titles of this celebrated Series indicate the scope of Lady Jackson's Writings, touching as she does on different periods of French History from the time of Henry of Navarre to that of Louis Philippe, and dealing with the manners and customs of the times, with chatty personal gossip taken from the memoirs of the brilliant men and women who flourished in this famous court. The writer has done her work most carefully, and at all times she is historically accurate. *The Edition being a limited one, the Series can only be supplied in complete Sets". Lady Catherine Hannah Charlotte Elliott Jackson (1824–1891), was the daughter of Thomas Elliot of Wakefield, and was also the second wife of Knight Diplomat Sir George Jackson (1785–1861), whom she married in 1856, and a prolific author in her own right, especially in the area of European history and of the court of France in the 16th century. After the death of her husband in 1861, she turned to literature, starting by editing the diaries and letters of her husband's early life. He was a distinguished diplomat, and is best known for accompanying Sir Charles Stuart to Germany and entering Paris with him in 1815, and for his efforts in connection with the abolition of the slave trade. On 19 June 1874 she was granted a pension in recognition of her husband's services. She then studied a variety of French memoirs, and compiled from them several books on French society. A few of the better known including "Old Paris: its Court and Literary Salons", appeared in two volumes in 1878, and "The Court of France in the Sixteenth Century", also in two volumes. Lady Jackson also wrote about art, especially Western painting, in her histories of the French royal court. In her book "The Court of France in the Sixteenth Century", she observed: "At about this time [speaking of the painter Raphael] only, movable pictures, to be hung on walls as ornaments, began to be in frequent demand. It is considered doubtful whether before the sixteenth century any such existed. For what would now be termed the easel pictures of the older masters have been detached from some articles of civil or ecclesiastical furniture."   Condition Report Externally Spine – good condition – very handsome spines top worn and scuff marks to the spines.

         The Man with the Hoe

      [San Francisco]: Sunday Examiner, 1899. First Edition. Poem famously inspired by the contemporaneous painting "L'homme a la houe" by the French artist Jean-François Millet. The piece was first read at a New Year's Eve party in 1898, launching Markham's career as a poet and lecturer to the working class. The painting, recreated on the upper panel of the present edition, shows a labor bent over by the weight of his toil, his face anguished and somehow simultaneously expressionless. Of him Markham wrote: "Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans / Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground / The emptiness of ages in his face, / And on his back the burden of the world." Presumed first published appearance of the poem according to Markham's biographical history in the Online Archive of California. The poem would also appear in a volume of Markham's poetry the same year, The Man with the Hoe and Other Poems. Folio (35.5cm.); pictorial bifolium printed in green, yellow, and black, author photograph printed on the upper panel. Closed tears and shallow losses along wrapper extremities, the whole rather toned due to poor paper stock. About Very Good and sound overall. Published as a supplement to the San Francisco Sunday Examiner, 1899.

         Kamajokk, Lappland.

      Olja på duk, uppfodrad på pannå. 22 × 34 cm. Oramad. Signerad och daterad: "Alfr. Thörne / Kamafallet 1899". Lappländsk friluftsstudie av Thörne från hans arbete med målningarna till planschverket Lappland. Det stora svenska framtidslandet (1908).Genom den intensifierade malmbrytningen vid Gällivare och Kiruna kom övre Norrland alltmer i blickpunkten för allmänhetens intresse vid denna tid. Norra stambanans tillkomst gjorde samtidigt dessa nordliga bygder mer lättillgängliga. 1908 demonstrerades det storslagna landskapet i ett praktfullt bokverk, Lappland. Det stora svenska framtidslandet, där flera konstnärer inklusive John Bauer och Karl Tirén medverkade med färgplancher och andra illustrationer.Alfred Thörne var rikt representerad i verket med sex färplanscher, som alla återger målningar från 1899 (plr. 4-6, 8-9, 15). Det är monumentala landskapsmålningar som dock färdigställdes först i ateljén efter resan, och där motivet ofta var tillrättalagt och anpassat för en viss komposition eller effekt.Denna oljeskiss från samma år är långt intressantare både topografiskt och konstnärligt, och utfördes av Thörne 'en plein air', dvs på plats direkt inför motivet. Som så ofta när det gäller friluftsstudier uppvisar den en helt annan friskhet och omedelbarhet än de ateljémålningar som var slutprodukten. Med snabb och inpirerad penselskrift dokumenterar Thörne det rusande Kamafallet och ger oss en mer trovärdig, detaljerad och levande bild än bokens stillsamma och nationalromantiska plansch 4: "Kvikkjokk, Pårtefjällen och Kamafallet i sommarnattsstämning". Där ges forsen en biroll utan repliker, underordnad fjällmassivet och den lågande himlen.Kamajokk är en tre kilometer lång lappländsk fors med utlopp i sjön Sakkat (Saggat) vid byn Kvikkjokk. Namnet är en försvenskad stavning av det lulesamiska Gamájåhkå, som betyder Dunderälven. Så här beskrivs området av Nils Johan Andersson, citerad av Gustaf von Düben i hans bok Om Lappland och lapparne (1873): "Qvikkjokks lilla kyrkoby är belägen i yttersta nordändan af Saggat-jaure. Härifrån till Sulitelma är vid pass 10 mil [enligt von Düben snarare 6-7 mil], och något mera än halfvägs häraf, öster om nämnde fjällklump, upprinna utur två ej synnerligen långt från hvarandra belägna små sjöar tvänne bäckar, som snart under sitt lopp genom tusentals bifloder växa ut till strida fjällfloder. De heta Kamajokk och Tarajokk och böja sig först bågformigt från hvarandra, tills de slutligen sammanfalla vid Qvikkjokk i Saggat. Kama kommer der dansande och hvitskummig norr ifrån, och sedan den under nära nog en half mil bildat en oafbruten, stenuppfyld fors, kastar han sig här i sjön utför ett fall, som om våren och efter starkare regnväder är bland de allra grannaste man kan se".

'He shot bear on the spot where during the early forties of the last century, bombers rolled from the assembly line; while, until just afterwards, "jeeps" were being turned out where turkey gobblers fell at the crack of his rifle.' Ohio's finest hunting item of which but 100 copies were printed, and the book has become now, all but unobtainable.

Crawford p. 360. Tosca, to a libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica after Victorien Sardou's play La Tosca, was first performed in Rome at the Teatro Costanzi on January 14, 1900. "None of Puccini's operas has aroused more hostility than Tosca, by reason of its alleged coarseness and brutality; yet its position in the central repertory has remained unchallenged. Not only is it theatrically gripping from start to finish: it presents the composer's most varied and interesting soprano role, hence its perennial appeal for the great operatic actress."

         An American Four-in-Hand in Britain.

      New York 1899 - Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author to his attorney on the dedication page, "G[ibson] D[avid] Packer Esq Friend & Veteran With regards Andrew Carnegie January 18, 1903." The recipient G.D. Packer took charge of the legal department in the 1880's of the Carnegie Steel Company, continuing until after their merger with the United States Steel Corporation. He was a close associate and friend of Carnegie's. In very good condition. A nice association. The Gilded Age and the dawn of the 20th century are often remembered as an era full of monopolies, trusts, and economic giants in heavy industries like oil and steel. Men like John Rockefeller built empires and financiers like J.P. Morgan merged and consolidated them. The era also made names like Astor, Cooke, and Vanderbilt instantly recognizable across the globe. Over time, the unfathomable wealth generated by the businesses made the individuals on top incredibly rich, and that in turn led to immense criticism and an infamous epithet used to rail against them: robber barons. Dozens of these men would be pilloried as "robber barons," but few of them were as wealthy or influential as Andrew Carnegie, who built America's foremost steel empire. Ironically, Carnegie epitomized the American Dream, migrating with his poor family to America in the mid-19th century and rising to the top of the business world in his adopted country. A prodigious writer in addition to his keen sense of business, Carnegie was one of the most outspoken champions of capitalism at a time when there was pushback among lower social classes who witnessed the great disparities in wealth; as he once put it, "Upon the sacredness of property civilization itself depends--the right of the laborer to his hundred dollars in the savings bank, and equally the legal right of the millionaire to his millions." In a similar vein, he said, "Those who would administer wisely must, indeed, be wise, for one of the serious obstacles to the improvement of our race is indiscriminate charity." While Carnegie's rise and wealth didn't necessarily separate him from other 19th century business magnates, it was in the field of philanthropy that he left his most unique mark, even as it paved the way for others to follow his lead. One of his most famous quotes was that "the man who dies thus rich dies disgraced," and for the last 15 years of his life, he contributed to countless causes.

One of his most famous quotes was that "the man who dies thus rich dies disgraced," and for the last 15 years of his life, he contributed to countless causes.

        The Importance of Being Earnest A Trivial Comedy For Serious People. By the author of Lady Windermere's Fan

      London: Leonard Smithers, 1899. First edition, trade issue. One of one thousand copies (this copy numbered 2, possibly a later hand, not that of the forger). 1 vols. Small 4vo. Mauve cloth, decorated in gilt. Cloth somewhat soiled and smudged, spine dulled with extremities worn. Brentano's ticket at back. About very good. With a studied, BAD FORGERY of Wilde's autograph on the dedication page. First edition, trade issue. One of one thousand copies (this copy numbered 2, possibly a later hand, not that of the forger). 1 vols. Small 4vo. NOT SIGNED BY WILDE. One of the crown jewels of the English theatre -- which is saying a lot -- and the greatest English farce of the last 150 years. The provenance of this copy, with its forged signature, is the famed Max Miller collection. Miller was a New York doctor and eclectic collector, to whom dealers on Fourth Avenue frequently resorted when they were short of money. The collection was dispersed in 1990. Mason (Millard) 381
