        American Bar. Utmutato az amerikai husito es hevito italok keszitesehez. [Guide for making American hot and cold beverages]

      Budapest: Kapheto Aczél Miksa, 1899. Octavo, 96, iv, [ads], pages. Illustrated. First edition of this rare Hungarian cocktail manual, written and published by the famous eponymous cafe/bar. The recipes and other text is in Hungarian, but the cocktail names are in English, and one can get a good sense of not only the cocktails which had appeared in Budapest, but the available ingredients. The author urges those who would embrace foreign visitors to Budapest to be aware that high quality food and drink will be expected, and that the cocktail need be available. The illustrations depict required barware, and the ads a variety of luxury food and drink items available in Hungary. Some darkening to wrappers at spine, otherwise very good, in publisher's printed brick red wrappers. Rare. While there is a modern facsimile edition available in Hungary, no copy appears in OCLC, and none on any of the lists of major collections which have been made public. We are aware of only one other copy, which is in a private collection and which we placed. [OCLC locates no copies; not in relevant bibliographies].

        THE CONVERSION OF PAULA BY ST. JEROME - Alma-Tadema.

      THE CONVERSION OF PAULA BY ST. JEROME Heliogravure uitgegeven in 1899 door Arthur Tooth & Sons te Londen naar het schilderij (Opus CCCL) van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: ca. 37,5 x 82 cm.Het schilderij waarnaar deze gravure is gemaakt, was onderdeel van de Royal Academy"s Summer Exhibition in 1898 en werd vanwege z"n uitmuntende techniek en schoonheid ontvangen als meesterwerk. Kunstcriticus F.G. Stephens beschouwde The Coversion of Paula als Alma-Tademas topstuk. Kunsthandel Arthur Tooth & Sons, opdrachtgever voor het schilderij, had daarmee een nieuwe troef in handen. Volgens de brieven van Alma-Tadema aan Stephens kwam het schilderij niet zonder problemen tot stand en was hij erg content met de lofbetuiging.Paula, gekleed in een purper en amber met goud geweven gewaad, leunt achterover op een altaar gewijd aan Bacchus. Ze luistert naar de charmante maar ascetische Hiëronymus die haar vertelt over het Christendom. Later verlaat Paula de Bacchus cult om deze nieuwe religie te volgen. Het werk vertegenwoordigt een van de weinig christelijk getinte onderwerpen in Alma-Tademas oeuvre. Tien jaar eerder was hij bekritiseerd voor het gebrek aan 'moral purpose" in zijn schilderij The roses of Heliogabalus.Prijs: € 3.250,- (incl. lijst).

        A New Pilgrimage,

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Co.,, 1899. and Other Poems. Small octavo (161 × 95 mm). Original green cloth, titles gilt to spine and in blind to front board, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Title-page printed in red and black. Spine sunned, extremities lightly rubbed, corners bumped, a scattering of white marks to top edge and head of front board, a very good copy. First edition, trade issue, T. E. Lawrence's copy, with his posthumous Clouds Hill bookplate to the front pastedown and his pencilled initials to the front free endpaper. Lawrence was a great admirer of Blunt's, a fellow adventurer turned-Arab sympathiser and anti-imperialist who served as a diplomat for eleven years before marrying Byron's granddaughter, Lady Anne King; soon after the birth of their child in 1873 "the couple departed on the desert travels that were to build their joint reputations for courage and expertise" (ODNB). Blunt's support of the 'Urabi revolt in 1881 made him persona non grata in the higher circles of British politics, his dogged advocacy of Arab interests foreshadowing Lawrence's disappointments some forty years later: "When Blunt denounced European imperialism, he was in turn denounced as only another 'Urabi in a frock coat". Lawrence, having recently agreed to join Churchill's new Middle East Department, wrote to Blunt before setting off for the Cairo Conference in March 1921: "I'll get my way or resign - or even do both things Â… Winston is a new and very keen mind on the Middle East business, and I hope will take it the right way. It's a very great chance given me" (Wilson, Lawrence of Arabia: The Authorised Biography, p. 647. With Feisal offered the throne of Iraq and Abdullah that of the Transjordan, Lawrence was able to fulfil at least some of his promises to the Arabs, though he nevertheless left the Colonial Office in July 1922 and joined the RAF under the name of Ross before enlisting in the tank corps the following year as T. E. Shaw. Writing from Karachi in 1928, he pointed H. H. Banbury, his regimental sergeant-major in the tank corps, to Blunt's 1903 translation of the pre-Islamic Arabic odes known as the Mu'allaqat: "a good translation, into English poetry, by Wilfrid Blunt, a great old man who died lately. His wife, Lady Anne, was an Arabic scholar. She made a prose translation: and Wilfrid, who could speak some Arabic, and liked Arabs, put them into very fine verse" (Garnett, ed., Letters of T. E. Lawrence, p. 584). A superb association, with the additional bookplate of Peter Hopkirk, noted British journalist who wrote widely on Central Asia and the Middle East, to the front pastedown. There was also a deluxe issue of 50 large-paper copies.

        Ukazanie Puti v Tsarstvie Nebesnoe. Pouchenie na Aleutsko-Lis'evskom jazike, sochinennoe svjaschennikom Ioannom Veniaminovym 1833 goda. [Indication to the Way to the Kingdom of Heaven, in Aleut language, composed by Priest Ioann Veniaminov in 1833].

      Moscow: Sinodalnaya Typografija, 1899. Octavo, [iv], 114 (paginated in Old Slavonic); old quarter sheep with marbled boards, fine. Rare: evangelical text translated into the Aleut language (and printed in Cyrillic), prepared by Ivan Veniaminov-Popov (1797-1879), the great Orthodox missionary to the northern Pacific. Veniaminov was educated in Irkutsk and chose a theological vocation. As a young man he was selected for the Orthodox mission to Unalaska and arrived there in 1822 with his wife and children. While some conversion had been previously successful, it was feared by the Church that Christian and indigenous beliefs had become merged. The scope of the missionary project soon expanded to include the entire Alaskan peninsula and surrounding islands, a vast and often inhospitable geographical area. For ten years Veniaminov was an intrepid traveller, often using small craft and kayaks to visit coastal settlements, and travelling on foot through rugged mountainous regions. In 1832 he was appointed to a relatively sedentary position at Sitka as minister to the Tlingit of the Northwest Coast.Veniaminov was a skilled linguist fluent in several dialects, he prepared this evangelical text in the Aleut language which was first published by the Moscow Synod in 1840 and later in 1899 (the present edition). Both editions are rare. As a pioneer apostle to the frozen north, Veniaminov was canonized Saint Innocent and holds a cherished place in the history of the Orthodox Church.

        D'Eugène Delacroix au néo-impressionnisme

      Editions de la Revue Blanche, Paris 1899 - Rare édition originale dédiée à la mémoire de Georges Seurat. Couverture dessinée par Théo van Rysselberghe. Tirage à petit nombre. >>>>>Avec cet ouvrage Signac formalise le mouvement néo-impressionniste, dont il fut le principal acteur avec Georges Seurat. S'inspirant de traités scientifiques consacrés aux phénomènes optiques, notamment celui d'Eugène Chevreul, ce dernier puise plusieurs principes qui constituent les bases théoriques de ce qu'il nomme le chromo-luminarisme: notion des couleurs complémentaires, distinction entre teinte et ton, idée du mélange optique s'effectuant non plus sur la palette mais dans la rétine du spectateur. Il en conçoit à partir de 1886 une technique caractérisée par l'application régulière et ordonnée de petites touches, "points" de couleurs pures qui composent le motif. Théo van Rysselberghe, Pissarro, Luce et Signac entres autres le suivront dans cette direction. Ce dernier avec D'EUGENE DELACROIX AU NEO-IMPRESSIONNISME en rédige le manifeste qui aura une influence certaine sur les fauves, les symbolistes et le futuristes, marquant une rupture qui favorisera la naissance des différents courants artistiques du siècle à venir.

      New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons,, 1899. Octavo. Original tan cloth, spine and front cover lettered and decorated in gilt, red, blue and black. Spine toned, some marks to covers, otherwise a very good copy. First edition, first printing, first issue, with the 4pp. publisher's terminal advertisements headed "By Anna Fuller", as called for. With a compliments slip signed by Bierce (in pale purple pencil) tipped to the front pastedown. "These short, titled fables, all in prose, point sardonic morals, one after another... Heading any tabulation would be politicians (including inept diplomats), closely followed by policemen, lawyers, and judges... Utterly typical, here, are Bierce's criticism of spiritual-intellectual pretensions and alleged juridical-political pomposity, and his lonely praise of an anti-American military-political pragmatist [the Filipino revolutionary Emilio Aguinaldo]" (Robert L. Gale, An Ambrose Bierce Companion, 2001, pp. 94-95).

        WAR IS KIND

      1899. [Will Bradley's masterpiece] Drawings by Will Bradley. New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1899. Original grey paper boards pictorially decrated in black, with spine label. First Edition of Crane's eighth book, his second volume of verse (some of which had appeared in the 1896 Roycroft Quarterly as "A Souvenir and A Medley"). Crane wrote these poems in Havana, during his nine-month separation from Cora; he called them his "Intrigue" poems, as in general they concerned his love-conflict between Cora (then being foreclosed upon in England) and Lily Brandon Munroe.~Mainly interesting as biography, these poems have been ignored or slighted by Crane's biographers and critics. They are memorable not as poetry but as poetic documents of personal feeling [Stallman].~But today this book is sought just as much for Will Bradley's book design and illustrations: the book is now regarded as typifying the best of American book design of the 1890s. The book was "arranged and printed by Will Bradley," with the text and his many illustrations on the heavy grey paper he chose for this book.~This is a very nearly FINE copy: the spine is slightly browned (less than usual), but there is scarcely any wear (typically the spine ends are chipped away, but not here). Williams & Starrett 20; Blanck 4083. Housed in a custom clamshell case.

Nostalgic journeys of this kind were always a sign of her special affection, a sign that she was taking someone into her heart as she took him into her past. On his birthday, 25 January 1892, she gave him her latest volume of poems, the second series of Lays and Legends, and she continued to remember the occasion by giving him her books for some years.".Inscribed Edith Nesbit's are exceedingly rare.

        The River War. An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan. Edited by Col. F. Rhodes. Illustrated by Angus McNeill.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1899., 1899. FIRST EDITION of the author's second book. 2 volumes; large octavo; pp. xxiii + 462; xiv + 499. Illustrated with Frontispiece and other portraits, and 34 maps and plans, many coloured and folding. Wood's second state of Appendix 'C' although Cohen is non-committal on this. Finely bound c.1950 in half red crushed morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, for booksellers and Royal Warrant holders Apsrey and Co. Internally clean, externally unmarked. A very fine set indeed. WSC's second book, written while he was still an Army officer, describes the background to the Sudan conflict between the British forces under Lord Kitchener and the fanatical Islamic Jihadists led by a self proclaimed second prophet of Islam, the relationship of the Upper Nile to Egypt, the murder of General Charles George Gordon in the siege at Khartoum, the political reaction in England, and Kitchener's elaborate preparations for the war. While in the Sudan Churchill participated in the Battle of Omdurman, the last British cavalry charge in battle. Churchill comments at length on the mechanization of war with use of the telegraph, railroad, and a new generation of weaponry. A sound set of "... a brilliant history of British involvement in the Sudan and the campaign for its reconquest: arresting, insightful, with tremendous narrative and descriptive power. Though published ...100 years ago, it is uniquely relevant to our times: combined with Churchill's personal adventure, there are passages of deep reflection about the requirements of a civilised government of ordered liberty" -Langworth. 'Churchill's greatest early work: a prose epic with much relevance today' -Churchill Centre. Langworth p.27; Woods A2.
