        The Weavers [Die Weber; De Waber]; Together with a Program for the Play [Each Signed / Unterzeichnet]: Clare Booth Luce's copy, Signed by her

      William Heinemann, 1899, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First editionA Very Good copy of the first UK edition, first printing, being the first printing in English (spine ends and board corners very lightly rubbed, leading bottom corners gently bumped, damage to the front pastedown's lower right corner due to removal of something once attached there, some offsetting to the rear pastedown and opposing endpaper face -- lacking the extremely scarce dust jacket), SIGNED BY GERHARD HAUPTMANN on the title page; TOGETHER WITH an ORIGINAL PROGRAM FOR THE PERFORMANCE OF "THE WEAVERS" At NEW YORK CITY'S GARDEN THEATRE for the Play's run there beginning on December 14, 1915 and continuing for 87 performances -- ending in February 1916, SIGNED BY GERHART HAUPTMANN to the front page's bottom margin (being in Very Good condition with some age toning as well as with some splitting at the top and bottom of the spine crease). Emanuel Reicher both directed the Play and took the role of Old Ansorge in it. German dramatist and Novelist Gerhart Hauptmann won the 1912 Nobel Prize in Literature "primarily in recognition of his fruitful, varied and outstanding production in the realm of dramatic art". In presenting the Award to Gerhart Hauptmann, Hans Hildebrand, then the Acting Secretary of the Swedish Academy, gave particular praise the "The Weavers", noting it as being the work in which Hauptmann first (at age 30) displayed his mature powers. "The Weavers", first published in Germany (1892), deals with a group of Silesian weavers who, during the 1840s, staged an uprising because of their concerns about the Industrial Revolution. (The Play provided the basis for the 1927 silent film of the same name directed by Frederic Zelnik and starring Paul Wegener.) Of The Weavers, noted Theatre Critic stated that, "as one of Gerhart Hauptmann's experiments in dramatic form, The Weavers is highly significant. Instead of a hero, he has created a mob; this mob is therefore the protagonist-or chief character-and if individuals emerge from the rank and file they are not thrust into the foreground to stay long. It is the weavers as a class that are ever before us, and the unity of the play is in them and in them alone; they are only parts of a larger picture which will take shape as the story advances, and are not intended to be taken as important individuals." Having a notable Provenance, this copy belonged to editor, playwright, journalist, ambassador, socialite, and U.S. Congresswoman (representing Connecticut) Clare Boothe Luce and carries her elegant possession signature to the front free endpaper.Copies of this important Hauptmann work are not at all common, signed copies in any edition or printing are more uncommon still, and copies signed by Gerhart Hauptmann, especially when in English translation, are as scarce as hen's teeth. A Very Good copy of one of Gerhart Hauptmann's most important works, having an excellent Provenance and having been SIGNED BY THE PRIOR OWNER, CLARE BOOTHE LUCE and, most notably, SIGNED BY GERHART HAUPTMANN, TOGETHER WITH AN ORIGINAL PROGRAM FOR FIRST AMERICAN RUN OF THE PLAY, ALSO SIGNED BY GERHART HAUPTMANN. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO RARE.

        Cyrano de Bergerac, drame en cinq actes, illustré par MM. Besnard, Flameng, Albert Laurens, Léandre, Adrien Moreau, Thévenot, gravé par Romagnol

      Paris: Armand Magnier, 1899. Livre. Illus. by Besnard, Flameng, Albert Laurens, Léandre, Adrien Moreau, Thévenot. Très bon. Reliure signée. Signé par l'illustrateur. 1e édition illustrée. In-4. Paris, Armand Magnier, 1899. 30 x 21,5 cm (R), in-4, 299 pp. - 5 planches hors texte, vignette de titre, portrait de l'auteur rehaussé de rouge et 47 gravures dans le texte, reliure de l'époque de demi-maroquin rouge à coins, dos à quatre nerfs repoussés orné portant en son centre un couvre-chef mosaïqué en deux tons posé sur deux épées croisées à froid, tête dorée, non rogné, couverture illustrée en deux tons conservée (reliure signée P. Affolter). Première édition illustrée, parue un an après l'originale. Tirage total à 500 exemplaires. Celui-ci, nominatif (M. Hérenger), sur CHINE FORT, comportant, comme les 40 premiers exemplaires sur Japon vieux, 4 états des bois : 1 état avant la retouche tiré à la presse à bras sur papier de l'ouvrage, 1 état sur Japon pelure tiré à la main par le graveur, 1 état avant la lettre et l'état avec la lettre. Les 56 (le portrait est en deux états) planches sur Japon pelure sont reliées au fil du volume et sont toutes signées à la mine de plomb par le graveur, qui a également agrémenté l'exemplaire d'un discret ex-dono au centre de la cartouche de l'acte I ("à l'ami et amateur, en souvenir de sa causette, le graveur Romagnol offre..."). Les deux autres suites sont reliées in-fine. L'exemplaire est par ailleurs enrichi des cinq planches d'essais en couleurs refusées, également placées au fil du volume, mais il manque une planche à la dernière des suites. François Thévenot a composé la couverture et le portrait et Besnard, Flameng, Charles Léandre, Albert Laurens et Adrien Moreau ont chacun illustré un acte. Carteret - qui critique (à notre humble avis) injustement cette édition au motif qu'elle est illustrée par différents artistes - cite 5 exemplaires non justifiés sur Chine de format in-4 comportant chacun les dessins originaux d'un artiste pour un acte. Notre exemplaire (dont les signatures sont celles d'un in-4 et non d'un grand in-8) pourrait être un exemplaire similaire, mais réservé au graveur, celui-ci ayant signé chacun de ses 56 tirages. Exemplaire agréablement établi par Paul Affolter. Quelques rousseurs éparses, surtout aux tranches, manque une planche (celle du début de l'acte I) à la suite avant la lettre. (MONOD, 9945 ; CARTERET, IV, 349 : "intéressante publication recherchée").

Tall narrow octavo (7" x 3 1/4") containing 79 handwritten entries. ADDED: an 1892 Clifton Springs Sanitarium Receipt, and a 1895 D.R. Sillesky & Co. Shirt Manufacturers receipt (Lockport New York). Unique 19th-century diary from a the Clifton Springs Sanitarium, in upstate New York, written by a 29 year-old employee who was struggling with alcoholism. For a detailed history of the Clifton Springs Sanitarium Company and the Clifton Springs Water Cure, see: "Bath Treatments at 'The Clifton Springs Sanitarium Company'" by Jim Conners. This is the manuscript diary / journal of William A. Lewis, of Ontario County, New York, born July 12, 1869. Lewis was a Balneator or "Bath Man" at the Clifton Springs Sanitarium; his duties including administering various kinds of therapeutic baths and rubs. Lewis also worked in the "Turkish Bath Room" at the Clifton Springs Sanitarium Company. The Sanitarium used the sulfur water for medical treatment baths. In 1914 the name was changed to the Clifton Springs Sanitarium & Clinic; in 1959 the name became the Clifton Springs Hospital & Clinic and is still in use today. Lewis' diary entries provide information on the number of Turkish Baths he administers, as well as activities away from his job, such as going to the lodge, drinking and "getting full", a suicide, etc. Here are some quotes / excerpts from the diary: "Terrible Snows & Cold wave all over W.S., gave 16 T.

        Autograph Letter, signed (with butterfly monogram) to his publisher William Heineman, discussing issues surrounding the publication of EDEN VS WHISTLER: THE BARONET & THE BUTTERFLY

      [Paris] 110 rue du Bac, 1899. 4 pp on two adjoining black-bordered sheets. 1 vols. 5-3/4 x 4 inches. Partial separation along hinge, uniform mild toning to pages, and a central vertical fold, otherwise fine condition. A fine letter to his publisher William Heinemann on the eve of publication of THE BARONET & THE BUTTERFLY, which documented the years iof legal wrangling between Whistler and Sir William Eden. Heinemann had been, and was continuing to be, a constant supporter of Whistler in his conflict with Eden, and had originally been the publisher of choice, as he had been of THE GENTLE ART OF MAKING ENEMIES. But shortly before publication, Heinemann offended Whistler by sending for promotional purposes the preliminary matter (all by Whistler) to an American critic without Whistler's permission. Whistler reacted by transferring the publishing rights to Louis-Henry May (referred to in the letter). "Well then thats all right - I have had a letter from Webb* to the same effect - advising me to let it alone - "Also I had myself been thinking that perhaps one ought to ignore utterly the doings of the "ruffiani" of the streets - "'So' as you say - "But now, my dear Heinemann, do let me hear what are you doing - or what is to be done? - and in short all that I have been asking! "Another question unanswered - How many copies, Edition de Luxe is May** to give me? - "Get a copy of the Catalogue of the 'International Exhibition***' - latest edition, and see my quotations under the pictures! - "I thought Pawling**** was coming over here - "The butterflies***** have come - "Of course the Baronet must have given up all hope of prosecution - "Now let Pawling send for Thomson****** and show him the letter - or tell him yourself - Or wait still if you think wiser - there is always time of course - "I daresay Thomson may have known something of the notice of the book in the 'Globe'. - "Well! Well! - I was so sure of your management of the Pall Mall! ! - "I shall be delighted to see you both here again - "Always [butterfly signature] *George and William Webb were Whistler's solicitors. **Louis-Henry May, Parisian printer ***2nd Exhibition, Pictures, Drawings, Prints and Sculptures, International Society of Sculptors, Painters and Gravers, London, 1899 ****Sidney Southgate Pawling (d. 1922), a business partner of the publisher W.

Publisher's green cloth, stamped in black with elephant on front cover and lion on rear cover. Near fine. Inscribed to Frank Doubleday's Son, With a Poem Inscribed on the title-page from Kipling to Felix Doty, the son of his close friend and American publisher, Frank N. Doubleday, "Jack Doty, from the Author: Mar 28: 99: Rudyard Kipling." With a holograph four-line quotation on the facing page from the "Law of the Jungle," "Wash daily from nose tip to tail tip - / drink deeply but never too deep. / And remember the night is for hunting & / forget not the day is for sleep, / R.K."Frank N. Doubleday, or "Effendi" - the nickname given him by Kipling, founded Doubleday & McClure Company in 1897, partly on the author's advice. Kipling was close to his American publisher and his family - it was Frank Doubleday's son Nelson who asked Kipling to write a book of animal stories, published as Just So Stories in 1902. The "Jack" Doty of this inscription is undoubtedly Felix Doty (1887-1941), a Louisiana boy adopted by Doubleday.

        Famous Castles and Temples of Japan

      1899. OGAWA, Kazuma. Famous Castles and Temples of Japan. Title-page, contents leaf, and 35 hand-coloured colotypes. Oblong folio, 353 x 270 mm, bound in original publisher's silk over boards. Yokohama: Kelly and Walsh, [ca. 1899]. One of the most attractive of the many collotype albums issued by Ogawa at the end of the nineteenth century. Ogawa Kazuma (1860-1929), one of the most celebrated early Japanese photographers and a founder of the first Japan Photographic Society, was introduced to photography in 1873 while at missionary school in Tokyo. He spent three years in the United States learning portrait photography; thus he is considered the first Japanese photographer to study abroad. "In 1894 he began copperplate printing, which enabled the simultaneous printing of type and photographs for the first time" (History of Japanese Photography, p. 356). As the preface states, other photographs in these volumes were supplied by the Englishman William Kinimond Burton (1853-1899) and Kajima Seibei (1866-1924); both of these men were instrumental in the development of photography as a commercial art form in Japan. Inscribed and dated 1899 on the front free endpaper. Very rare with OCLC listing only 5 copies worldwide.

        The Second Jungle Book

      New York: Century, 1899. Later printing. With decorations by J. Lockwood Kipling. 324 pp. Printed by the DeVinne Press. 1 vols. 8vo. Publisher's green cloth, stamped in black with elephant on front cover and lion on rear cover. Near fine. Later printing. With decorations by J. Lockwood Kipling. 324 pp. Printed by the DeVinne Press. 1 vols. 8vo. Inscribed to Frank Doubleday's Son, With a Poem. Inscribed on the title-page from Kipling to Felix Doty, the son of his close friend and American publisher, Frank N. Doubleday, "Jack Doty, from the Author: Mar 28: 99: Rudyard Kipling." With a holograph four-line quotation on the facing page from the "Law of the Jungle," "Wash daily from nose tip to tail tip - / drink deeply but never too deep. / And remember the night is for hunting & / forget not the day is for sleep, / R.K." Frank N. Doubleday, or "Effendi" - the nickname given him by Kipling, founded Doubleday & McClure Company in 1897, partly on the author's advice. Kipling was close to his American publisher and his family - it was Frank Doubleday's son Nelson who asked Kipling to write a book of animal stories, published as Just So Stories in 1902. The "Jack" Doty of this inscription is undoubtedly Felix Doty (1887-1941), a Louisiana boy adopted by Doubleday.

        Dot and the Kangaroo

      London: Thomas Burleigh, 1899. Quarto, frontispiece portrait, 19 plates; some foxing, original cloth, stain on upper board, recased with inner hinges reinforced, endpapers embrowned, rear patterned endpaper with signs of tape removal, head and tail of spine restored, a very good copy withal. The very rare first edition of this Australian children's classic.The story of Dot, the little girl lost in the Australian bush, who is helped by a kindly grey kangaroo, has become 'a fundamental text of Australian children's literature' (People, Print and Paper). It has rarely been out of print over the past century, appearing in innumerable editions, with illustrations by a variety of artists.The author, Ethel Pedley, was an English-born music teacher, and committed conservationist, who lived in Sydney for many years. She died at the home of her friend Emmeline Woolley in Darlinghurst in 1898, and was buried at Waverley Cemetery. Before she died she had made arrangements for Bulletin artist Frank Mahony to illustrate the book. His depictions of the bush certainly do give an authentically Australian air to the publication, which although published in London was 'entirely produced in Australia'.

        An original flag from the Philippine-American war, brought back by an American officer stationed in Bataan

      A 31" x 28" linen flag, bearing two red horizontal stripes above and below a faded yellow stripe, with .25" fringe along one end and a stamped identification at the margin (recto and verso): "COL. LOUIS A. CRAIG 18 V.F.W." Several tears and moth holes, colors faded due to age, some soiling, else very good. The flag, likely a Spanish colonial flag, was recovered and brought to the United States by Col. Louis Aleck Craig, who commanded the 32nd U.S. Volunteers in Bataan from October 1899 to March 1901. Craig (1851-1904) was a career officer who graduated West Point in 1874, serving on the frontier in Wyoming and Arizona until the 1890s. In 1898, with the 1st Division, he went to Puerto Rico and was present at the surrender of Spanish forces at Coamo and saw action near San Juan. Following his service in the Caribbean, he became Colonel of the 32nd United States Volunteers which arrived in the Philippines in October 1899. He commanded the regiment at Angeles through February 1900 and then as commander of the Sub-District of the Province of Bataan at Bantanga. He led his regiment in the Philippines until March 1901 when he and his men returned to the United States. Soon after his return, Craig served briefly as Acting Superintendent of Yosemite National Park (June-November 1901).
