        Autograph Letter Signed -- written about, and as he was writing, LORD JIM

      1899 - [written about LORD JIM] Addressed to "Dear Mrs. Bontine" [Anne Elizabeth Bontine, the mother of Conrad's good friend R(obert). B(ontine). Cunnighame Graham]. On his stationery of Pent Farm, Stanford, near Hythe [Kent]. 4 pages (both sides of one folded leaf). Dated 25 Nov. [18]99. The recipient of this letter was the mother of R. B. Cunninghame Graham -- one of Conrad's closest friends, and one of the most important people in his life. The two men met in 1897 (when Graham lauded "An Outpost of Progress"). Graham and his family were of the Scottish aristocracy but with Spanish blood; Graham approved of anarchy as a political alternative (see: THE SECRET AGENT), and traveled widely in places such as Africa (hence his interest in "Outpost") and in South America (which would provide Conrad with much information about that continent for such writings as NOSTROMO). Conrad was also a correspondent with his mother, especially when Graham was traveling -- as here.~Beginning in late-1898, "Conrad began to split into pieces, and one result was the emergence of Charley Marlow, a middle-aged seaman. His next three works all used Marlow in varying degrees of dependency: 'Youth,' 'Heart of Darkness' and LORD JIM" [Karl]. A year later, at the time of this letter, he had completed the first two but was still agonizing over what he had planned to be merely a third short story, "Lord Jim."~The text of Conrad's letter reads:~A thousand apologies for my remissness in answering your kind and most welcome letter. I've just heard from dear Robert. He wrote from Granada. It makes me really happy to know that in the middle of his occupations he finds time to think of me. If envy is the sincerest form of admiration then I do envy him. There is no man to envy more.~He told me of his intention to go south again, so I do not answer his letter now. I expect to have the happiness (ceci n'est pas une phrase) of seeing him on his return. His youngest (I should think) friend does not consider himself fully dressed for the day unless he has on his neck the pretty-pretty given him by Kunam Gram. Do you recognize the name? [it appears to be a perhaps-tribal corruption of "Cunninghame Graham"]~You have the gift of kind words, of words that reach one in the depth of mental solitude, of discouragement, of mistrust. It looms like the blackest ingratitude that I should have delayed so long my thanks for your praise of Lord Jim which is my last (and lasting) anxiety. I've not as yet finished that story. The volume including that one, the Heart of D'ss and Youth shall come out in March if the fates are propitious. It shall come out and but for you -- Robert -- a friend here and there I would feel it shall disappear about that date. Yet I am a fortunate man for I have just the appreciations I care for.~My wife, with thanks for your message for her, asks me to convey the expression of her great regard. I can't tell you how grateful I am for every letter you deign to write. Pray believe me always your most faithful and obedient servant, [signed] Joseph Conrad~Well, the fates were NOT propitious -- or maybe, in retrospect, they were. The projected volume never did come out the following March -- for, prolonging the author's "lasting anxiety," "Lord Jim" the story gradually expanded into LORD JIM the 451-page novel, published in October 1900 -- generally regarded today as Conrad's greatest work. The other two tales could not yet appear in book form because, in the absence of "Lord Jim," a third tale was needed to "fill out" a volume. It would not be until 1902 that Conrad could write "The End of the Tether"; that third story would permit the publication of YOUTH And Two Other Stories in November 1902 -- more than two years after LORD JIM.~This letter, first and foremost, demonstrates in the author's own hand how it was his intention that the three "Marlow" stories should form a single published book -- which never happened. Further, the letter gives a hint of the anguish he [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Catalogue of Drawings and Bibliography).A wonderfully illustrated set, depicting the complete oeuvre of the famed artist of the Aesthetic and Art Nouveau movements.Aubrey Vincent Beardsley (21 August 1872 ?- 16 March 1898) was an English illustrator and author. At the age of nineteen he achieved notable and lasting acclaim for his illustrations in the Dent edition of Malory's Le Morte Darthur in 1892. He was a leading figure in the Aesthetic movement which also included Oscar Wilde and James A. McNeill Whistler. In 1894, Beardsley became the art editor of The Yellow Book under the general editorship of Oscar Wilde but with his advancing tuberculosis and Wilde's arrest - that put an end to that satirical periodical. His drawings in black ink, influenced by the style of Japanese woodcuts, emphasized the grotesque, the decadent, and the erotic. Although in increasingly poor health, Beardsley continued to produce illustrations, including those in The Savoy, The Rape of the Lock, and The Lysistrata. Aubrey Beardsley died from tuberculosis at the very young age of 25 on the 16th March, 1898.Lasner, 133; 136 & 177; Gallatin, pp. 74/75.

        The Importance of Being Earnest

      London: Leonard Smithers and Co,, 1899. A Trivial Comedy for Serious People by the Author of Lady Windermere's Fan. Square octavo. Original pale purple cloth, gilt lettered spine, gilt floral motifs from designs by Charles Shannon on spine and covers, untrimmed, housed in a custom-made green cloth solander box. Discreet book labels of Llewellyn Wright and J. O. Edwards on front pastedown; spine of box faded, spine of book sunned, one very small black blemish on back cover, front and rear free endpapers browned (as usual). A fine copy. First and limited edition, one of 100 numbered large paper copies signed by Wilde. The Importance of Being Earnest, Wilde's last play, opened to great acclaim on Valentine's Day 1895 but was withdrawn after Wilde's failed libel suit against Lord Queensbury led to his arrest. The subsequent "utter social destruction of Wilde" (ODNB) meant that the play was not published in book form until February 1899, after Wilde's release from prison. Richard Ellmann comments that Smithers's handsome editions of Earnest and An Ideal Husband "brought Wilde a little money". Wilde's signature on the limitation leaf poignantly reflects his mental state after the shattering nature of his recent experiences, concluding dramatically with a firmly executed oblique downwards stroke.

        THE CONJURE WOMAN

      1899. Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1899. Original brown cloth decorated in black, white and orange. First Edition of this Afro-American writer's first book, a series of seven dialect stories about incidents of slavery, told as reminiscences by an old black gardener. Examples are "Po' Sandy," "Mars Jeem's Nightmare" and "Sis' Becky's Pickaninny." Later in the same year, Chesnutt's biography of Frederick Douglass was also published. Chesnutt, who grew up in Fayetteville NC and ultimately returned there as a school principal, was actually mixed-race: his paternal grandfather was a white slaveholder, and though he claimed to have more white than black ancestry (and could probably have "passed" for white), he identified himself as a black man -- or "colored" in the language of the time.~This is a near-fine copy, with only a hint of wear at the extremities, and very slight speckling of the cloth near the bottom edge. Neither in the Blockson catalogue nor in Thornton (though both list the 1900 printing). Pioneer that he was, in recent years Chesnutt has become a very highly-collected author. Provenance: the front endpaper bears a 1928 penciled inscription by a former owner of this copy (who signed and initialed it), "The author of this book is a colored man, whose father was a drayman (whom, as a boy, I knew) in Fayetteville N.C."

He is often called England's national poet and the Bard of Avon. His extant works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, some narrative poems and other verses. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1589 and 1613. His early plays were mainly comedies and histories and these works remain regarded as some of the best work produced in these genres even today. He then wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608. Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the 19th century. The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare's genius. His plays remain highly popular today and are constantly studied, performed, and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.

Exlbiris / Bookplate of film critic Leonie Graetz (Exlibris was made by the artist Hermann Westphal) to the front pastedown. Very Rare in this condition ! The Ballad of Reading Gaol is a poem by Oscar Wilde, written in exile either in Berneval-le-Grand or in Dieppe, France, after his release from Reading Gaol (pronounced "redding jail") on 19 May 1897. Wilde had been incarcerated in Reading, after being convicted of homosexual offences in 1895 and sentenced to two years' hard labour in prison. During his imprisonment, on Tuesday, 7 July 1896, a hanging took place. Charles Thomas Wooldridge had been a trooper in the Royal Horse Guards. He was convicted of cutting the throat of his wife, Laura Ellen, earlier that year at Clewer, near Windsor. He was aged only 30 when executed. Wilde spent mid-1897 with Robert Ross in Berneval-le-Grand, where he wrote The Ballad of Reading Gaol. The poem narrates the execution of Wooldridge; it moves from an objective story-telling to symbolic identification with the prisoners as a whole. No attempt is made to assess the justice of the laws which convicted them, but rather the poem highlights the brutalisation of the punishment that all convicts share. Wilde juxtaposes the executed man and himself with the line "Yet each man kills the thing he loves". Wilde too was separated from his wife and sons. He adopted the proletarian ballad form, and suggested it be published in Reynold's Magazine, "because it circulates widely among the criminal classes ?- to which I now belong ?- for once I will be read by my peers ?- a new experience for me". The finished poem was published by Leonard Smithers on February 13, 1898 under the name C.3.3., which stood for cell block C, landing 3, cell 3. This ensured that Wilde's name ?- by then notorious ?- did not appear on the poem's front cover. It was not commonly known, until the 7th printing in June 1899, that C.3.3. was actually Wilde. The first edition, of 800 copies, sold out within a week, and Smithers announced that a second edition would be ready within another week; that was printed on February 24th, in 1000 copies, which also sold well. A third edition, of 99 numbered copies "signed by the author" was printed on March 4th, on the same day a fourth edition of 1200 ordinary copies was printed. A fifth edition of a 1000 copies was printed on March 17th, and a sixth edition was printed in 1000 copies on May 21st, 1898. So far the book's title page had identified the author only as C.3.3., although many reviewers, and of course those who bought the numbered and autographed third edition copies, knew that Wilde was the author, but the seventh edition, printed on June 23, 1899 actually revealed the author's identity, putting the name Oscar Wilde, in square brackets, below the C.3.3.. It brought him a small income in his remaining lifetime. The poem consists of 109 stanzas of 6 lines, of 8-6-8-6-8-6 syllables, and rhyming a-b-c-b-d-b. Some stanzas incorporate rhymes within some of all of the 8-syllable lines. The whole poem is grouped into 6 untitled sections of 16, 13, 37, 23, 17 & 3 stanzas. A version with only 63 of the stanzas, divided into 4 sections of 15, 7, 22 & 19 stanzas, and allegedly based on the original draft, was included in the posthumous editions of Wilde's poetry edited by Robert Ross, "for the benefit of reciters and their audiences who have found the entire poem too long for declamation".

        STORY OF LITTLE BLACK SAMBO

      - BANNERMAN,HELEN. LITTLE BLACK SAMBO. Lond:Grant Richards 1899. 16mo (3 1/8 x 5"), green striped cloth, vi-viii, 57p., spine faded and very slightly soiled, 2 pages printed close to margin else near fine, tight and clean. THIS COPY INSCRIBED BY A BANNERMAN FAMILY MEMBER, DATED NOVMBER 1899! First edition of this fourth title in the Dumpy Book series with color illustrations engraved on wood and printed by EDMUND EVANS. Written by Bannerman during a long train ride, it was immediately successful and went into several editions within the first year of publication. Aside from creating the now controversial characters of Sambo and his parents, the books was also revolutionary for its small size designed for small hands and may very well have influenced Beatrix Potter in designing her small format books. This is a nice copy of a rare children's classic. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Avant-projet de tramway sur la Commune de Saint-Médard-en-Jalles (Avril 1899) Ligne de Saint Médard au Camp. Plan des Traverses manuscrit déroulant au 200e [ Avec : ] Profil en travers schématique [ Avec : ] Profil au point métrique [ Avec : ] Plan général au 10.000e

      1899 - Lot de 4 plans déroulants, détaillés ainsi : Plan des Traverses manuscrit : 1 plan manuscrit déroulant format 31 x 1313 cm, encre et aquarelle ; Profil en travers schématique : plan manuscrit déroulant format 31 x 76 cm, encre ; Profil au point métrique : plan manuscrit déroulant format 31 x 57 cm, encre et aquarelle ; Plan général au 10.000e sur papier calque Bel avant-projet établi en avril 1899 pour une ligne de tramway qui aurait relié sur 2225 m le Bourg de Saint-Médard (à la jonction de la ligne de tramway Bordeaux-Saint-Médard-en-Jalles) au "Camp de Saint Médard" (approximativement partant de la Mairie, puis longeant la Jalle par le Nord, apparemment dans l'axe de l'actuelle rue Clémenceau, jusqu'à l'actuelle rue Berthelot). D'une extrême précision, l'impressionnant plan des traverses de plus de 13 mètres de long (échelle d'un centimètre pour 2 mètres.) précise l'identité de chacun des propriétaires de parcelle limitrophe. Ce projet ne semble pas avoir abouti, et si le tramway reliant Bordeaux à Saint-Médard-en-Jalles est bien inauguré en avril 1900, cette extension n'aurait jamais abouti. Durant les deux guerres mondiales, un embranchement conduira le personnel de la poudrerie par l'actuelle rue du Docteur-Alcide Castaing, donc par le sud, mais non par la ligne prévue dans cet avant-projet. Le plan général établi sur papier calque, est fortement abîmé en tête, mais les autres documents (qui faisaient partie de tout un dossier de géomètre), dont l'impressionnant plan des traverses sont en excellent état (un accroc sans manque n'affectant pas le tracé au plan des traverses).

        THE ROUGH RIDERS

      1899 - Illustrated. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1899. Original olive cloth with Rough Riders medallion in gilt on the front cover. First Edition of Theodore Roosevelt's own book about the volunteer regiment he organized for the Spanish-American War -- possibly the most famous regiment in American history, made up of college boys and cowboys, socialites and hunters, athletes and Indians, clergymen and policemen. Roosevelt had resigned from his position as Assistant Secretary of the Navy to embark on this mission. Upon his triumphant return from Cuba, Roosevelt campaigned successfully to become governor of New York -- at which time he wrote his own account of his experience with the Rough Riders -- this book. The following year he would become McKinley's vice president; the party bosses had figured it would be a job where he would disappear for awhile -- but, upon the assassination of McKinley in 1901, he would accede to the presidency.~The book is profusely illustrated, mostly by photographs, but also with an image of Frederic Remington's famous painting "Charge of the Rough Riders at San Juan Hill."~This is an unusually fine copy, without wear -- though as always with this color cloth, the spine is a bit faded (less than usual). Provenance: 1899 title page penciled signature of W. Hinckle Smith, the broker and financier who became wealthy from his involvement with fellow-Philadelphian Meyer Guggenheim's copper interests -- and who in 1907 would create the mansion "Timberline" in Bryn Mawr (architect Charles Platt, landscaping by Olmsted Bros.) -- which estate would crumble into decay after Smith's death in 1943, and ultimately be demolished in 1977.
