        The River War.

      London, New York and Bombay: Longmans, Green & Co.,, 1899. An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan. Edited by Col. F. Rhodes. Illustrated by Angus McNeill, Seaforth Highlanders. 2 volumes, octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles and pictorial decoration gilt to spines and upper boards, black-coated endpapers. Both volumes separately housed in a navy full morocco bookform folding case. Portrait frontispiece in each volume. 4 illustrated plates and 11 folding maps in volume 1, 2 illustrated plates and 9 folding maps and three non-folding maps in volume 2, and numerous illustrations, maps and plans in the text. Extremities rubbed with tiny splits to the joints of volume 1, tape reinforcement to the hinges between half-title and frontispiece in both volumes, cracked in volume 1,spotting throughout; good condition. First edition, first impression, second state - minor typographic error (second inverted comma missing after THE 'LONDON GAZETTE[']) corrected on p. 459 of volume II - of Churchill's second book, preceded only by The Story of the Malakand Field Force (1898), "2000 copies published on 6 November 1899" (Woods). It includes, of course, his account of the charge of the 21st Lancers, to whom he was attached, at Omdurman on 2 September 1898, described by the Dictionary of National Biography as "that last cavalry charge of the dying century". DNB also considers The River War a "superb" history; whilst Churchill himself more graphically called it "a tale of blood and war". This particular copy has a good military provenance: both volumes bear the contemporary armorial bookplate of wealthy Huguenot-descended businessman Henry Pigé-Leschallas (d. 1903), father of Captain Gilbert Pigé-Leschallas, of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, who was killed in action at Gallipoli (for the blunders of which Churchill himself was largely blamed). They also have the armorial bookplates of Henry Frederick, 6th Marquess of Bath, one of the "Bright Young People" of the 1920s who went on to gain the rank of Major in the Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry, and be awarded the Bronze and Silver Star for action in the Second World War.

Mit eigenhändiger, ganzseitiger Widmung Ernst Haeckels für seinen Assistenten, den Zoologen und späteren Geographen Leonhard Schultze-Jena (1872-1955): "Viele Menschen betrachten den Gewinn einer einheitlichen, auf vernünftige Natur-Erkenntniß begründeten Weltanschauung als einen unbequemen Luxus, der die Gemüthlichkeit des behaglichen Daseins stört. Für mich hingegen ist diese monistische Philosophie der zuverlässige Talisman, welcher nicht nur den Schlüssel zur Lösung der 'Welträthsel' liefert, sondern auch die kostbarste Waffe im unvermeidlichen 'Kampf um's Dasein' der Vernunft bildet. Dasselbe wünsche und hoffe ich für meine treuen Schüler und Mitkämpfer, insbesondere meinen lieben Assistenten und Reisebegleiter in Sicilien (1897), Dr. Leo Schultze. Glückauf! Jena 19.

        The Nightless City, or the "History of the Yoshiwara Yukwaku"

      Z.P. Maruya & Co. Ltd.,, Yokohama 1899 - First edition. Octavo. Decorative gilt cloth. Very good: foxing to first few and last 3 pages, and untrimmed edges. Pages untrimmed. 441 Pages, followed by appendix. With 20 plates including 9 coloured, of which 7 magnificent folding chromolithographs, and many textual illustrations. The Japanese geisha is the ultimate erotic icon -the courtesan par excellence -and this is her definitive book. The life of the geisha is the most secret and traditional in Japan and today remains largely unchanged and unknown behind the teahouse doors. This remarkable work was the first to reveal the hidden world of the geisha of the famous Yoshiwara quarter of Tokyo, the nightless city, and it has never been surpassed. Written over a hundred years ago, it is a meticulous description of every aspect of geisha life, including the history of the geisha, life stories of famous geisha, the decoration of the teahouses, the different grades of courtesans, their costumes and hairstyles, the instruction of young girls brought to the teahouses, the art of selecting a geisha for the evening, proper conduct on the morning after, erotic practices, and charms used by geisha to attract lovers. The vibrant life of the Yoshiwara quarter is evoked with finesse, portraying the procurers and madames, the festivals and geisha processions, even the menus of the teahouses, along with such matters as forms of contracts between brothels and courtesans. Profusely illustrated with photographs, prints, and drawings, this is an essential volume for all who are fascinated by the sophisticated sensuality of the willow, the cherry blossom, and the silken kimono. From the library of Maurice Champoud, Switzerland. A very scarce book in this condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Eighteen signed autograph letters

      1899 - 1900. Very Good. Eighteen letters (23 pages) written between November 1899-October 1900 to publisher Grant Richards detailing the arrangements for his novel, A Second Coming, published by Richards in 1900. Letters by Marsh are extremely rare. The letters, in Marsh's tiny, meticulous handwriting, offer a revealing and somewhat acrimonious correspondence, most often about money matters. At one point, Marsh threatens to involve his solicitors to force the payment of royalties. One of the last letters written a few months after the book was published acknowledges that the reviews thus far had been poor. Richard Marsh (1857-1915) was the pseudonym of Richard Bernard Heldmann. It is believed that Heldmann began using his pseudonym because he had been in jail for forgery. Marsh was a best selling and prolific writer at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. He is best known for The Beetle, published the same year as Dracula and initially more popular. The subject of this correspondence, his book A Second Coming, imagines Christ returning to early 20th century London. With this work Marsh was striving for a more literary production. Most of the letters are written on embossed 5 x 8 inch stationery. Many are stamped in green "Received...Grant Richards" with the date. Three of the letters are written on small pieces of paper and one is written in pencil. The one in pencil is chipped and faded but the others are in very good condition. AUTO/030116.

      Leipzig: B. G. Teubner, 1899. - Entire volume offered. 112 pp; 50 figs. Contemporary 3/4-cloth and marbled boards. Ink stamp on title page, else Very Good. 'There is hardly one result of his Grundlagen der Geometrie which would not have been discovered in the course of time if Hilbert had not written this book. But what matters is that one man alone wrote this book, and that it is a fine book. Grundlagen der Geometrie, published in 1899, reached its ninth edition in 1962. This means that it is still being read, and obviously by more people than read Hilbert's other work. It has gradually been modernized, but few readers realize that foundations of geometry as a field has developed more rapidly than Grundlagen der Geometrie as a sequence of reeditions and that Hilbert's book is now a historical document rather than a basis of modern research or teaching' (D.S.B. VI: 390). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Dichter (1875-1926): Eigenh. Brief mit U. Schmargendorf bei Berlin, 13. III. 1900. 8°. 1 ½ S. a. Doppelblatt.

      - Sehr früher und interessanter Brief an die Redaktion des "Montagsblatt aus Böhmen" anlässlich einer am Vortag erschienenen Besprechung seines berühmtesten Jugendwerkes "Mir zur Feier. Gedichte" (1899) mit Buchschmuck von Heinrich Vogeler. Rilke geht auf die lobende Kritik nicht ein, sondern bittet um die Korrektur der falschen Angabe, er habe seine erste nennenswerte Gedichtsammlung dem Illustrator und weiteren Förderern gewidmet: "[ ] in der Beschreibung meines Buches ‚Mir zur Feier` ist ein sachlicher Irrtum zu verzeichnen. [mit Stern eingefügte Anmerkung unten:] Nr. 11 vom 12. März 1900. Sie würden mir einen Dank erweisen, wenn Sie ihn in der nächsten Nummer richtigstellen wollten, umsomehr, als er nicht direkt mich [im Original unterstrichen] trifft. Das Buch ist nicht [im Original unterstrichen] dem Maler Heinrich Vogeler-Worpswede und dem Herrn Prof. Dr. August Sauer und der ‚Gesellschaft zu Förderung deutscher Wissenschaft, Kunst und Literatur` - ‚zugeeignet.` Diese Namen sind nur darin notiert, mit der Bemerkung, durch wessen Freundschaft, Vermittlung und Theilnahme das Buch schöner und reicher werden durfte in seiner Erscheinung. Zu einer Widmung fehlte mir bei den Persönlichkeiten, sowie dem Institut gegenüber das Recht, da ja der Inhalt des Buches zu keinem von den dreien in irgendeiner persönlichen Beziehung steht. / Mit Dank / hochachtend: / Rainer Maria Rilke" - // - Die Besprechung in der deutschsprachigen Prager Zeitung "Montagsblatt aus Böhmen", liegt in Kopie bei. - Rilkes "neues Versbuch", das erstmals unter dem auf Veranlassung von Lou Andreas-Salomé (Schriftstellerin, Psychoanalytikerin, 1861-1937) eingedeutschten Namen Rainer (statt René) erschien, wird darin außerordentlich gelobt: "Es hat ein festliches Gewand, entzückende Arabesken und reizvolle Miniaturen des Vorpsweder (sic!) Künstlers Heinrich Vogeler umrahmen die Lieder, es ist stattlicher als die früheren Gedichtbände unseres Landsmannes, es ist persönlicher und künstlerisch entschieden reifer". - Der Autor bedauert die fehlende Resonanz und begründet seine Bewunderung für Rilkes Kunst: "er ist eine geheimnisvolle, aus einer überreichen Phantasie und verblüffenden Beweglichkeit der Sprache quellende Kraft, welche in seinen Versen zittert." - Dies alles vermag die Verärgerung Rilkes über die versehentlich unterstellte Widmung nicht zu bremsen. Den Maler, Designer, Illustrator und bald engen Freund Heinrich Vogeler (1872-1942), hatte Rilke 1898 in Florenz kennen gelernt. Im September 1900 wurde Rilke eingeladen auf den Barkenhoff, dem Domizil Heinrich Vogelers in Worpswede, da sich Lou, mit der er seit 1897 befreundet war, vorerst von ihm getrennt hatte. Dort lernte Rilke die Bildhauerin Clara Westhoff kennen und heiratete sie im folgenden Frühjahr. Der österr. Literaturhistoriker und Hochschullehrer August Sauer (1855-1926) gehörte zu den Intellektuellen in Rilkes Geburtsstadt Prag. Er begründete die Zeitschrift Euphorion. Die "Gesellschaft zur Förderung deutscher Wissenschaft, Kunst und Literatur in Böhmen", wurde 1890 in Prag gegründet und unterstützte in den tschechischen Länden lebende deutsche Forscher, Künstler und Schriftsteller mit Finanzierung von Druckkosten. - // - Wenn Rilke das Buch jedoch überhaupt jemandem gewidmet hätte, dann nur Lou Andreas-Salomé. Ursprünglich wollte er für die Freundin eine Gedichtsammlung mit dem Titel "Dir zur Feier" veröffentlichen. - Dass Rilke zur Zeit unseres Briefes noch ganz im Banne Lous war, zeigt schon der Absender. Er war der 14 Jahre älteren Geliebten nach Berlin Schmargendorf gefolgt und bewohnte 1898 bis 1900 eine Wohnung in der Villa Waldfrieden in Lous unmittelbaren Nachbarschaft. Dort entstand nicht nur unser Brief, sondern berühmte Werke wie der Cornet. Endgültig beendete Lou die Liebesbeziehung mit dem Abschiedsbrief vom 26. Februar 1901. Die leidenschaftliche Beziehung ging über in eine enge Freundschaft, die bis zu Rilkes Tod anhielt. 1905 widmete er ihr das "Stunden-Buch". - Kleiner Einriss [Attributes: Signed Copy]
