        The Ballad of Reading Gaol

      New York: Benj. R. Tucker, 1899. [Second American Edition]. Hardcover. Often considered to be the first American edition, this imprint is actually preceded by the Brentano's ca. 1898 edition. This edition was published in two states, one in which the text appears on rectos only, the second (including this copy) printed on rectos and versos: "Both editions, that printed on one side and that printed on both sides, are from the same type. It is therefore clear that they are not...two independent editions, but the one-side issue constitutes merely a kind of de-luxe variety, while the two-sided is a cheaper, popular version of the same edition" (HORODISCH, pp. 76-77). Issued by Benjamin R. Tucker, the noted anarchist publisher and editor of the journal Liberty, in which Tucker published the essay "The Criminal Jailers of Oscar Wilde" in 1895. Tucker and Emma Goldman were two of the few Americans to publicly defend Wilde during his trial (George Haggerty, Encyclopedia of Gay Histories and Cultures (2013), p. 52. 12mo (18.5cm.); publisher's two-toned cloth (white over blue), upper cover lettered and ruled in gilt, unadorned spine; [8],44pp. Some minor shelf wear, white portion of cloth binding rather soiled and toned along spine, short closed tear to title page fore-edge not approaching text, old ink spot affecting first few leaves, else interior fine. Very Good and sound overall.

        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.

        Jeppe's Map of the Transvaal or S A Republic and Surround Territories - 6 Maps

      Edward Stanford, London 1899 - Six glazed linen maps. The maps cover the areas from southern Rhodesia to Northern Natal and Northern Orange Free State, from the Bechuanaland Protectorate border areas to Tongaland and southern Portuguese Territory (Mozambique)in intense and dense detail. Produced by Fred. Jeppe of the Surveyor General?s Department and C.F.W. Jeppe, of the Mining Department. The maps show towns, farm boundaries, farm names, farm registration numbers, farms under the jurisdiction of Mining Commissioners, roads, railways, postal routes, custom houses, postal and telegraph information, proclaimed gold fields, mynpachten, kraals and "locations", mountains and rivers. The details were of such accuracy that the maps were confiscated in London by the War Office. General Roberts relied on the maps (which include heavily detailed maps of Johannesburg and Pretoria) for his entry into Pretoria. It is RARE to find all six maps available together. The maps are numbered 1-6 on the rear top left corner. They were beautifully and most carefully lithographed onto the material by Wurster, Randegger & Cie (J Schlumpf), Winterhur, Switzerland. Six glazed linen maps. Bar scale of main map in English statute miles., Inset maps include: 'Plan of Johannesburg and surrounding suburbs and townships reduced from "Pritchard's commercial map of J'hburg"' and 'Plan of Pretoria suburbs and surrounding grounds, reduced from original plan compiled in the Surveyor General's Office, Pretoria, S.A.R.' Scale [ca. 1:9 446]. Bar scales in Cape feet., To be used in conjunction with Jeppe's map: Hugh F. Marriot's Alphabetical index to the farms of the Transvaal. The maps are housed in original card wallet. This is much worn, creased, foxed, marked. It is fit for its purpose, sound and secure. Each of the maps have speckles of foxing on the blank rear faces. Map 1 (of Johannesburg and Pretoria) has some rusting along some of the folds. Otherwise, the maps are fresh and clean and very healthy. Map 2 (21' - 25'S / 28' - 30'E) has just some light rusting along the folds at the very top of the map. Map 3 (21'-25'S / 30.5'- 33'E) has very light rust-marks along the top horizontal fold. Map 4 (25'- 29'S / 24.5'- 27.5'E) is smart and clean with just some very light foxing marks to the edges. Map 5 - the Grand Map of the series: "Jeppe's Map of the Transvaal or SA Republic and Surrounding Territories compiled from surveys filed in the Surveyor General's Office by Fred. Jeppe, Hon CMRGS etc of the Surveyor General's Department and CFW Jeppe, of the Mining Department. The Compilers are greatly indebted to Johann Rissik Esq. Surveyor General of the SAR for much valuable information and advice" - a beautiful map. It has some foxing about the very edges. The bottom folds have very coy powder-dustings of rusting. Map 6 (25'- 29'S / 30.5'- 33'E) is bright, elegant and most attractive. The edges have light foxing marks. All the maps are in healthy, vivid condition. The colours and details are fine, sharp. The colours are gentle, genteel, aglow. The cloth of each is healthy, in youthful condition. A most generous and lovely - even addictive - set of maps. fk [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Theodore Roosevelt: The American.

      London and New York: F. Tennyson Neely, 1899. First edition of this early biography of Theodore Roosevelt. Octavo, original cloth, gilt titles to the spine, front panel, frontispiece of Roosevelt. Inscribed by Theodore Roosevelt on the front free endpaper in a contemporary hand, "Jeffrey Englehart, with regards of his father's friend, Theodore Roosevelt." An ownership stamp of the recipient below. In very good condition. Rare, this is the first example we have seen signed and inscribed by Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt: The American covers the future President of the United States' life through the inauguration as Governor of New York. After leaving Cuba in August 1898, the Rough Riders were transported to a camp at Montauk Point, Long Island, where Roosevelt and his men were briefly quarantined due to the War Department's fear of spreading yellow fever. Shortly after Roosevelt's return to the United States, Republican Congressman Lemuel E. Quigg, a lieutenant of party boss Tom Platt, asked Roosevelt to run in the 1898 gubernatorial election. Platt disliked Roosevelt personally, feared that he would oppose Platt's interests in office, and was reluctant to propel Roosevelt to the forefront of national politics. But Platt also needed a strong candidate due to the unpopularity of the incumbent Republican governor, Frank S. Black, and Roosevelt agreed to become the nominee and to try not to "make war" with the Republican establishment once in office. Roosevelt defeated Black in the Republican caucus by a vote of 753 to 218, and faced Democrat Augustus Van Wyck, a well-respected judge, in the general election.Roosevelt campaigned vigorously on his war record, winning the election by a margin of just one percent. As governor, Roosevelt learned much about ongoing economic issues and political techniques that later proved valuable in his presidency. He was exposed to the problems of trusts, monopolies, labor relations, and conservation. Chessman argues that Roosevelt's program "rested firmly upon the concept of the square deal by a neutral state". The rules for the Square Deal were "honesty in public affairs, an equitable sharing of privilege and responsibility, and subordination of party and local concerns to the interests of the state at large". By holding twice-daily press conferences--which was an innovation--Roosevelt remained connected with his middle-class political base. Roosevelt successfully pushed the Ford Franchise-Tax bill, which taxed public franchises granted by the state and controlled by corporations, declaring that "a corporation which derives its powers from the State, should pay to the State a just percentage of its earnings as a return for the privileges it enjoys". He rejected "boss" Thomas C. Platt's worries that this approached Bryanite Socialism, explaining that without it, New York voters might get angry and adopt public ownership of streetcar lines and other franchises. The New York state government affected many interests, and the power to make appointments to policy-making positions was a key role for the governor. Platt insisted that he be consulted on major appointments; Roosevelt appeared to comply, but then made his own decisions. Historians marvel that Roosevelt managed to appoint so many first-rate men with Platt's approval. He even enlisted Platt's help in securing reform, such as in the spring of 1899, when Platt pressured state senators to vote for a civil service bill that the secretary of the Civil Service Reform Association called "superior to any civil service statute heretofore secured in America" (Chessman p. 6). Chessman argues that as governor, Roosevelt developed the principles that shaped his presidency, especially insistence upon the public responsibility of large corporations, publicity as a first remedy for trusts, regulation of railroad rates, mediation of the conflict of capital and labor, conservation of natural resources and protection of the less fortunate members of society. Roosevelt sought to position himself against the excesses of large corporations on the one hand and radical movements on the other. As the chief executive of the most populous state in the union, Roosevelt was widely considered a potential future presidential candidate, and supporters such as William Allen White encouraged him to run for president. Roosevelt had no interest in challenging McKinley for the Republican nomination in 1900, and was denied his preferred post of Secretary of War. As his term progressed, Roosevelt pondered a 1904 presidential run, but was uncertain about whether he should seek re-election as governor in 1900.

      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 BILDERWERKERSTE 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.

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.

        THE LIFE AND WORK OF SUSAN B. ANTHONY INCLUDING PUBLIC ADDRESSES, HER OWN LETTERS AND MANY FROM HER CONTEMPORARIES DURING FIFTY YEARS. A STORY OF THE EVOLUTION OF THE STATUS OF WOMAN

      The Bowen-Merrill Co. 1899 & 1898, Indianapolis & Kansas City - The first two volumes of three, with the last not published until 1908, two years after Anthony's death. Recent brown morocco leather, preserving on the front panels the gilt medallion profile portrait of Anthony from the original binding; all edges gilt. Illustrated with frontispiece portraits of Anthony and other plates and facsimiles. Each volume is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by this principal leader of the woman suffrage movement in the United States on the front endpapers to a suffragist from Michigan. In the first volume, Anthony has written: "Mrs. Olivia B. Hall/Ann Arbor- Michigan-/From her affectionate friend & coworker/Susan B. Anthony/Rochester N.Y./Jan. 1, 1899." On the same date she also INSCRIBED the second volume: "Mrs. Olivia B. Hall/Ann Arbor- Michigan-/May the New Year bring/added causes for happiness to/her and all the loved ones of her home/circle & to all homes- is the wish of her/affectionate friend & coworker/Susan B. Anthony/Rochester N.Y./Jan. 1, 1899." Books inscribed by this great American have become quite scarce. In a 1903 letter to Dodd Mead & Co., Harper detailed the unsatisfactory arrangement she and Anthony had with Bowen-Merrill. According to her there were only 225 bound copies and 858 unbound sets of sheets of the first edition. "As Miss Anthony is not likely to live very long, being over 83 and very feeble, she and I both thought it would be better for me to purchase her rights in the book, and I have done so, and am now sole owner of it." Fine copies with great inscriptions [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Half-length photographic portrait of Francis Galton, side profile, seated at a desk, poised to write.

      [London: Frederick Hollyer], May, 1899 - Black and white photographic reproduction mounted on buff stiff card, inscribed on the verso in red ink, "Fred Hollyer, 9 Pembroke Square, Kensington, W.", additionally inscribed in black ink, "Francis Galton, photographed May / 1899". Image size: 100 x 145 mm. Mount size: 164 x 106 mm. Pencil notation to verso, "No. 5532". Extremities a little rubbed, an unobtrusive glue repair to top left corner of card mount verso, otherwise in very good condition. A striking photographic portrait of the human geneticist and eugenicist Francis Galton, taken by Frederick Hollyer, the great late 19th-century celebrity photographer. Hollyer (1837–1933) was highly regarded for his fine platinum print reproductions of paintings, particularly those by the Pre-Raphaelites, whom he met in 1860 and for whom he did much to popularise their work. His other speciality became portraiture, and he was the photographer of choice for the celebrity set. For thirty years, from 1882 onwards, he reserved Mondays for welcoming sitters at his studio in Pembroke Square. "Hollyer made a great many revealing and intimate portraits. His subjects included many of the most important artistic, literary and society figures of the day [He] prided himself on his immaculate technical skills and advocated making 'untouched' negatives and prints" (Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, p. 712). His series, Portraits of Many Persons of Note, comprises nearly 200 portraits and includes those of Aubrey Beardsley, Thomas Hardy, Lord Kelvin, William Morris, General Smuts, Ellen Terry, and W. B. Yeats, among others, and were applauded for their delicacy and subtle tonal range. This photograph of Galton was presumably taken as part of the series, and Galton lived only a short distance away, also in Kensington. The Victoria and Albert Museum hold one of the largest collections of Hollyer's work, including the three small albums of portraits which he assembled specially for his daughter. See Biographical Encyclopedia of Photographic Artists & Innovators (Macmillan, 1983), pp. 283–4.
