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".

        A five page ALS! Mrs. Jefferson Davis writes that her ?husbands papers would shed a little light upon the diplomatic relations of the Confederate government with foreign nations ? Mr Davis was greatly astonished at Mr Bigelow?s statements in the book he wrote [?France and the Confederate Navy?] and said the facts were most astonishingly perverted...?

      New York, New York, January 13, 1899. 4" x 6.25". "Black-bordered Autograph Letter Signed ?Varina Jefferson Davis,? five pages, 4? x 6.25?, front & verso. The first four pages are on two conjoined sheets; page five and a nine-line postscript are penned on another pair of conjoined sheets. The Girard, W. 44th St. [New York City], January 13, 1899. To Dr. J.M. Callahan. Soiled. Fine condition.Accompanied by a black-bordered envelope, 4.5? x 3.5?, addressed by Margaret Howell Davis Hayes (1855-1909), the sole surviving child of President and Mrs. Davis, to ?Col E. Palfrey / Howard Memorial Hall / Camp Street. New Orleans.? Signed by her in the upper left: ?If not delivered / return to Mrs. / J.A. Hayes / 832 N Cascade Ave / Colorado Springs Colo.? Postmarked Beauvoir, Miss., May 18, 1899. Col. Edward Palfrey (1830-1901) was President of the Board of Governors of the Louisiana Historical Association from 1893 until his death. Col. Palfrey is mentioned in the letter here offered.Black-bordered because four months earlier, on September 18, 1898, President and Mrs. Jefferson Davis?s youngest child, Varina Anne ?Winnie? Davis, had died at the age of 34. Born in 1864, Winnie had become known as ?Daughter of the Confederacy? for her appearances with her father on behalf of Confederate veterans? groups.In full, ?Your?s has been received and I wish I could feel that an examination of my husbands papers would shed a little light upon the diplomatic relations of the Confederate government with foreign nations, but every paper Mr Davis had of much importance was seized except those which accidentally fell into the hands of an ignorant young man in Richmond who gave them out as autographs to many of his friends, and I have forgotten his name. I think Mr Slidell lost none of his papers, and it is more than probable if you would apply to Medme [sic] La Comtesse de St Roman 76 Ave Kleber Paris she might be able to help you. It is my happiness to know that the more our Confederate archives are investigated the more hightly [sic] the character of those who were the authors of them will appear. I shall go to New Orleans in Feb or March then if I can find any one fitted for the task I will have Mr Davis? papers indexed. Mr Davis was greatly astonished at Mr Bigelow?s statements in the book he wrote and said the facts were most astonishingly perverted. ?Col Ambrose Dudley Mann transcribed his very exact and reliable memory of our diplomatic relations with England in a kind of diary or resumé of his long and useful as well as honorable diplomatic career, and left the task of editing them to my daughter now deceased ?" We always hoped his son would administer upon his effects and transmit the immensely valuable Mss to us as we should cheerfully have surrendered the profits to him, but he died I believe without making any use of his father?s legacy to the world and I do not know where they could be found, or where to find his wife who may know something about them.? In a postscript, Mrs. Davis adds ?It has occurred to me that if you will write to Col Palfrey of the Louisiana Hist. Soc. he can probably put you in communication with some of Duncan Kenners relations who might find his papers for you. It is worth the trial.?The book Mr. Bigelow wrote was ?France and the Confederate Navy, 1862-1868: An International Episode,? by John Bigelow, published in 1888. He wrote about the construction in France and England of warships for the Confederate Navy, the movement of Confederate ships in European waters, and, in general, Confederate activities in Europe. Lincoln had appointed Bigelow American Consul in Paris in 1861, progressing to Chargé d?Affairs, and, in 1865, U.S. Minister to France, serving until 1866.Ambrose Dudley Mann (1801-1889), John Slidell (1793-1871) and James M. Mason were Confederate Commissioners to Europe. Slidell?s daughter Marie married French nobility becoming the Countess de Saint-Roman. Sent by President Davis, Duncan Kenner (1813-1887) arrived in Paris in early 1865 to approach the governments of England and France with an offer. In exchange for recognition, the Confederacy would abolish slavery. Kenner met with Slidell and Mason. Representatives of the French government informed Kenner that France would accept the deal provided that England would do the same. England refused."

SUMMARY: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a children's novel written by L. Frank Baum and illustrated by W. W. Denslow. Originally published by the George M. Hill Company in Chicago on May 17, 1900, it has since been reprinted numerous times, most often under the name The Wizard of Oz, which is the name of both the popular 1902 Broadway musical and the well-known 1939 film adaptation. The story chronicles the adventures of a young girl named Dorothy Gale in the Land of Oz, after being swept away from her Kansas farm home in a cyclone. The novel is one of the best-known stories in American popular culture and has been widely translated. Its initial success, and the success of the 1902 Broadway musical which Baum adapted from his original story, led to Baum's writing thirteen additional Oz books. BACKGROUND: Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 – May 6, 1919), better known by his pen name L. Frank Baum, was an American author chiefly known for his children's books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost" novels, 83 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings), and made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and screen. His works anticipated such century-later commonplaces as television, augmented reality, laptop computers (The Master Key), wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work). William Wallace "W. W." Denslow (May 25, 1856 – May 27, 1915) was an American illustrator and caricaturist remembered for his work in collaboration with author L. Frank Baum, especially his illustrations of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Denslow was an editorial cartoonist with a strong interest in politics, which has fueled political interpretations of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. CONDITION: Condition is Fair/Good.

        Spring.

      1899 1899 - Original watercolor and gouache painting by artist, author, and proprietor of the Pear Tree Press, James Guthrie. The image shows Spring personified as a haloed and winged woman, bearing a crown, scepter, and orb. She looks on regally as her kneeling handmaidens, also haloed and winged, release a swallow from the cage it inhabited during the winter and take up a shepherd's crook to welcome the new life of spring. The three figures encircle a small pond and are surrounded by a profusion of flowers, from tiny crocuses mixed with the grass on the ground to tall stands of lilacs. Every facet of the landscape and figures is executed with Guthrie's characteristic attention to minute detail: the petals of tulips are easily distinguishable; the flowers and ribbons intertwined in the hair of the kneeling women are finely achieved; and every feather of the three pairs of wings is clearly wrought. This watercolor is dated "[18]99" under the artist's initials in the illustration, and the back is signed "Spring / drawn by / James Guthrie / 1898/9."The year 1899 was a momentous one for Guthrie, as this was the year he acquired an Albion printing press, initially simply to print his own drawings. However, he soon moved from painting to printing as his main method of artistic expression. "Spring" was published by Guthrie in 1900 in An Album of Drawings, though it previously had been in the January-April 1899 issue of the Pall Mall Magazine. Both reproductions are unfortunately in black & white and do not show the bright coloration of the original watercolor, which gives the image a depth and clarity lacking in the published versions. Painting executed on thick cardstock, which shows pencil marks, stains, and holes along the edges, most likely from the reproduction process. Otherwise, the image itself is in fine condition and has been professionally matted. (Cardstock 14 3/8 by 9 3/8 inches; mat 16 1/4 by 11 1/2 inches). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Joséphine Impératrice et Reine

      Large 4to. Paris: Goupil, 1899. Large 4to, (4), 271pp. With a color frontispiece portrait and 41 illustrations of which 33 are full-page. Original full dark red straight-grain morocco extra, covers stamped in gilt with the Napoleonic shield, rich gilt borders, backstrip richly gilt and stamped with bees, crowns, and ?N?s. A sumptuous binding perhaps indicating a de luxe copy. Small patch on the lower cover faded, joints very slightly scuffed, but a lovely copy beautifully bound. First edition, limited to 1200 copies of which this is #6 which may indicate an early issue in the de luxe binding. The original printed wrappers are bound in. A well regarded work on Napoleon?s wife. ?Joséphine de Beauharnais was the first wife of Napoleon I, and thus the first Empress of the French. Her first husband Alexandre de Beauharnais was guillotined during the Reign of Terror, and she was imprisoned in the Carmes prison until her release five days after Alexandre's execution. Through her daughter, Hortense, she was the maternal grandmother of Napoléon III. Through her son, Eugène, she was the great-grandmother of later Swedish and Danish kings and queens. The reigning houses of Belgium, Norway and Luxembourg also descend from her. She did not bear Napoleon any children; as a result, he divorced her in 1810 to marry Marie Louise of Austria. Joséphine was the recipient of numerous love letters written by Napoleon, many of which still exist. Her Château de Malmaison was noted for its magnificent rose garden, which she supervised closely, owing to her passionate interest in roses, collected from all over the world.? (Wikipedia).

        Die Lebensanschauungen der grossen Denker [Unterzeichnet; Signed by Eucken; Murray Gell-Mann's Copy] [The Problem and Development of Human Life as Viewed by the Great Thinkers from Plato to the Present]: eine Entwicklungsgeschichte ... (Truncated)

      Verlag Von Veit & Comp, 1899, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First edition thusFull Book Title: Die Lebensanschauungen der grossen Denker [Unterzeichnet; Signed by Eucken; Murray Gell-Mann's Copy] [The Problem and Development of Human Life as Viewed by the Great Thinkers from Plato to the Present]: eine Entwicklungsgeschichte des Lebensproblems der Menschheit von Plato bis zur Gegenwart von Rudolf Eucken, Professor in JenaA Very Good copy of the revised and expanded (by Eucken) edition, bound in three-quarter leather with elegant decorative board and with the compartmented spine lettered, decorated, and lined in gilt and having a red title label and a green author label and the page block's closed edges stained red (some minor edge rubbing, light scuffing to the rear board leather near the spine, some scuffing to the red spine label, outer board corners rubbed through, front board lightly curved at the leading extremities, mild damage to and light residue on the front pastedown evidently from a bookplate's removal, top portion of the page facing the title page clipped off), SIGNED BY RUDOLF EUCKEN on the title page -- text in German; Murray Gell-Mann's copy with Gell-Mann's bookplate to the front free endpaper. First published in 1890, Eucken, as he explains in his second and third forwards, revised and expanded the work in 1896 and then again in 1899. Eucken won the 1908 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his earnest search for truth, his penetrating power of thought, his wide range of vision, and the warmth and strength in presentation with which in his numerous works he has vindicated and developed an idealistic philosophy of life". One of Eucken's best-known and most important works, the book presents and critiques the views of great philosophers on the problem of human life, including the views of such thinkers as Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Spinoza, Descartes, Kant, and others. Eucken himself maintained that humans have souls, that they consequently were at the junction between nature and spirit, and that they should seek to overcome their non-spiritual natures and work to achieve a more spiritual life. Murray Gell-Mann won the 1969 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their interactions". Gell- Mann coined the name "Quark" for certain elementary particles, naming them after a line in James Joyce's "Finnegans Wake". [Having determined the sound for the word he would coin for his discovery, Gell-Mann was for a time uncertain of how he would choose to spell it, considering, among other possibilities, spelling the sound as "kwork" until, in what he called one of his "occasional perusals of Finnegans Wake", he came across the phrase: "Three quarks for Muster Mark! / Sure he has not got much of a bark / And sure any he has it's all beside the mark." Thus was born a new and important Scientific term.] Thus we have one Nobel Prize-winner's copy of another Nobel Prize-winner's signed book -- an excellent Association copy.Signed copies of Rudolf Eucken's works are exceedingly difficult to find and our search of the auction records reveals only one of his signed books having come to auction since 1960. A Very Good copy of Rudolf Eucken's masterpiece, SIGNED BY RUDOLF EUCKEN and with an excellent PROVENANCE, BEING THE COPY OF NOBEL PRIZE-WINNER MURRAY GELL-MANN. A REMARKABLE AND RARE COPY OF THIS NOTABLE WORK.

        WAR IS KIND

      1899 - CRANE, Stephen. WAR IS KIND. Illustrated by Will Bradley. NY: Fredrick A. Stokes, 1899. Small 8vo., pictorial gray boards with a Bradley illustration on the front cover; 96 pages. First Edition. [William and Starrett 20]. Crane's second collection of 37 verses, many published previously in periodicals from 1894 on. A rather unique association copy, given as a gift by American writers Elinor Wylie and her husband, William Rose Benet, to Henry Seidle Canby and his wife, Marion. Canby was a well-known critic, editor and a distingushed professor at Yale University- certainly acquainted with the two writers. Signed presentation on the front endpaper: "To Henry and also Marion- from Elinor and Bill. Christmas 1923. With all good wishes, A rare book by a rare American." Each author has signed for themselves with the presentation apparently in Benet's hand and the comment after the date in Wylie's hand. Also laid-in is a gold-foil Christmas card, designed by Wylie, with another signed presentation to the Canbys: "To Marion and Henry Canby from Elinor Wylie and William Rose Benet. Christmas, 1923" The handwriting here appears to be entirely in Wylie's hand. A notoriously fragile book. Many of the pages are uncut at the top (like most copies in the marketplace) which means the Canby's (or many other people for that matter) ever read the book- as attractive as it is with the Bradley illustrations. I carefully opened some of the earlier pages in the text but left at least half still uncut [Don't want Canby to get away making everyone believe he actually read Crane's book]. Anyway, a nice association copy between important literary figures of their day. Very good condition (covers are quite nice with minor wear and bit of darkening to spine [as usual]; few very tiny cracks spine that are quite nicely repaired; contents clean and tight). $1,000.00.

When in November of 1908, Henry James introduced Wharton to Meredith, Meredith greeted her exclaiming "My dear child, I've read every word you've written and I've always wanted to see you." Meredith had long been one of Wharton's favorite writers and it has been said that the influence of Meredith's "adroit social satire and sly feats of Language" are very evident in "The Greater Inclination".

      - Bleistift, mit Bleistiftlinie umrandet, auf chamoisfarbenem Pauspapier, rechts unten monogrammiert „IK.". 22,8:17,8 cm. Aufgrund des ausdrucksstark-dynamischen Zeichenstrichs möglicherweise frühe Arbeit der Künstlerin. Zudem hat das Blatt, da Kerkovius nur selten mit dem Bleistift arbeitete – die Pastelltechnik war ihr Gebiet –, einen besonderen Reiz. Ida Kerkovius zählt sicher zu den renommiertesten deutschen Künstlerinnen des 20. Jahrhunderts. 1899 begann sie ihre künstlerische Ausbildung an einer privaten Malschule in ihrer Geburtsstadt. 1902 Umzug nach Dachau, um an der privaten Malschule von A. Hölzel (1853-1934) zu studieren. 1908 Studium in Berlin an der Zeichen- und Malschule von A. Mayer und Übersiedelung nach Stuttgart, wo Hölzel seit 1906 an der Kunstakademie lehrte. Nachfolgend wurde sie seine Meisterschülerin und 1911-1914 seine Assistentin mit eigenem Meisteratelier. 1915-1917 unterrichtete sie Hanna Beckker vom Rath (1893-1983), ihre spätere freundschaftlich verbundene Förderin und Sammlerin. 1920-1923 Studium am Bauhaus in Weimar, wo sie bei den für ihr weiteres Schaffen bestimmenden Künstlern J. Itten (1888-1967), P. Klee (1879-1940) und W. Kandinsky (1866-1944) studierte und u.a. die Weberei erlernte. Ab 1925 Reisen nach Paris, Norditalien und in die Schweiz. Nach 1933 wurde sie von den Nationalsozialisten als „entartet" diffamiert und erhielt Ausstellungsverbot. 1935-1939 Reisen durch Mittel- und Osteuropa, anschließend Rückkehr nach Stuttgart, wo sie sich zurückgezogen weiterhin der Malerei und Bildweberei widmete. Bomben zerstörten ihr Atelier und damit einen Großteil ihrer Arbeiten. Nach 1945 unternahm sie weitere Reisen nach Südfrankreich, an den Gardasee und nach Ischia. 1954 wurde ihr das Bundesverdienstkreuz Erster Klasse verliehen, 1958 folgte die Ernennung zur Professorin. Sie wurde Ehrenmitglied der Staatlichen Akademie der bildenden Künste in Stuttgart sowie Ehrenvorstandsmitglied des Deutschen Künstlerbundes. Obwohl ihre letzten Jahre von schwerer Krankheit gezeichnet waren, war sie weiterhin künstlerisch tätig.
