        Merton College Caricature Album

      1899-1904, Oxford, England 1899 - Madcap "salad days" from back when! 4to. 30 by 25.5 cm. Unpaginated, 20 pages with caricatures mounted onto card rectos. Additional blank card, and a number of drawings that are loose, some of which were probably always so. In total, 91 separate pieces of overwhelmingly, caricature, of varying size, and ranging from simple portraits, exaggerated in one way or another as called for by the medium, to multi-character cartoons, or depictions of a scene, with dialogue bubbles and captions. The caricatures center around, but are not confined to, the doings and personalities of Merton College, Oxford. A few of the portraits would appear to be of Theodore Roosevelt, for example. Many, but far from all, of the mounted caricature illustrations are signed or credited, although we think it is quite likely that pseudonyms were used, as was obviously the case with "the Freak". The album is quite unusual, then, in its creation, with multiple contributors, something common in a friendship or amicorum album, which this decidedly is not. We would surmise that the contributors were members of an informal club of artistic anarchists. The quality is not entirely even, as might be expected from such an effort, but overall, the caricatures are vivid and amusing, with quite a few displaying true artistic cleverness. Rebacked in matching calf. Wear to the corners and edges. Some scrappiness to interior. Paste marks where there once were a few mounted pieces. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Siamo in presenza di una documentazione unica nel panorama editoriale e giornalistico italiano. La Domenica, emanazione settimanale del sempre potente e documentato CORRIERE DELLA SERA, ha attraversato molti anni della vita e della storia italiana (albori del '900, prima guerra mondiale, movimenti politici, i 20 anni di regime fascista e seconda guerra mondiale., ecc., ecc.) veniva letto ed apprezzato da una moltitudine di persone e fece grandissima presa specialmente sul "popolo" mentre in quegli anni la "borghesia" sfogliava "la Illustrazione Italiana" ed altri giornali patinati.- Il giornale prosegui' - stancamente - fino al 1989 ma il periodo veramente significativo ed apprezzato è compreso nella raccolta che qui presentiamo dove ci sono anche gli anni rarissimi della prima e della seconda guerra mondiale.

Il giornale entrò in quasi tutte le case ogni domenica con le sue immagini di attualità e di grande presa immediata, riassumendo i fatti più importanti ed anche di cronache eclatanti, e sopratutto TIMBRANDO i ricordi e la memoria di tantissimi italiani ormai non più giovani. La rara collezione, in sequenza e senza lacune è composta da volumi di dimensioni circa 30 x 40 e di pagine circa 8-16.per numero.

        The Arabic Press of Egypt.

      London, Luzac & Co. (by E. J. Brill at Leyden), 1899. - (4), 94 pp. 1 bl. f., 29, (1) pp. of adverts. Original red cloth with giltstamped title to spine. First and only edition of this indispensable, oft-quoted study of early Egyptian journalism and book-publication. When published, the book was hailed by the conservatively British Oriental Institute as "valuable as work of reference, and as showing the intellectual actvity of all those people who fall under British influence" (Asiatic Quarterly Review). The Silesian-born Arabist and Islamic scholar Martin Hartmann (1851-1918) pioneered Islamic studies as an independent discipline. While his scholarly work spans Islam from its beginnings to the present and from China to West Africa, it was contemporary Islam, widely neglected by the German universities, that was his main focus of interest. "Hartmann was one of the first to collect Arabic folk songs, published on the Arabic press, pointed out the role of Islam in China and provided extensive reports on the happenings within the Ottoman Empire. Crucially, he introduced the sociological method to German Islamic scholarship" (cf. NDB VII, 745f.). "A learned critical list of Arabic publication" (Athenaeum). - Original untrimmed top edge; very slight bumping to extremeties. A contemporary scholar's handwritten underlinings and notes (some in shorthand) throughout. OCLC 19530169. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        CIRCUS & ENTERTAINMENT: MEMORY BOOK OF A YOUNG FEMALE MEMBER OF AN EARLY BICYCLE ACROBAT TROUPE

      8°, [44] manuscript in pen and pencil, photographs and drawings in pencil, pen and water-colour within text, mounted dried flowers within text, original puprple velvet binding with elaborate metal pieces, staples (Very Good, slighty age-toned, some leaves loose, binding slightly rubbed). - Berlin, Bremen, Halle, Hannover, Köln, Leipzig, Wroclaw, Stockholm, Altona, Odense, Mannheim, Karlsruhe, Copenhagen, London, Charleroi etc.: 1899-1907. A memory book of a circus artist Käthe Derrington, active in the early 20th century as one of the first female bicycle circus performers, includes many distinct entries by various famous circus and theatre artists from Europe and Asia. - This unusual beautifully composed memory book bears entries by various European and Asian circus performers, in German, English and Asian languages. The book belonged to one of the first female bicycle circus artist Käthe Derrington, who was a part of a troupe called the Derrington Family, preforming acrobatic acts on bicycles. The owner is not signed, but is referred to in the text. The entries were made between 1899 and 1907. The first note on the first page, was made by the owner’s mother, dated September 6, 1899, in Berlin in German language. In the next three years entries were made by Käthe’s teachers and friends, when we can assume, the young girl was schooled in Halle in Germany. Most probably Käthe Derrington joined her family’s acrobatic bicycle act as a teenage girl in 1902, when entries of her other family member appear, followed by entries by circus and theatre actors, made in North Europe in the next five years. Many hand written dedications in the memory book refer to its owner with affectionate notes as Käthe (Cathy), or little Käthe, and often hint she is very young. Käthe probably retired from the circus industry in her late teens or early twenties. This memory book gives a detailed view into a life of a young female circus artist in the beginning of the 20th century. Notes with autographs, and sometimes portrait photographs, were made by several famous circus artists: - The Moroccan circus artist Hadj Ali ben Mohamed (1863-1914), who received an American citizenship in 1903, attached his portrait photo with the dedication in English. - Two entries were made by the touring Japanese circus group Riogoku Family, which wrote a dedication in Japanese and attached postcard size photographs. - A famous female lion tamer Claire Heliot (1866-1953) inserted her photograph with a lion to hand-written verses and a dedication in Cologne in 1906. This famous performer, whose lithographed portraits with lions decorated early 20th century posters and match boxes, was attacked by a lion in 1907. After that she retired to Stuttgart, where she died in 1953. - Members of the famous Lorch Family: Jeanette (1879-1954), with a photograph, Hedwig (1890-1966), with a photograph, Helene (b.1883), with a photofraph, Eugen (1885-1943), Arthur (1881-1942). The Lorch Family, was a highly respected Jewish circus family, active in the late 19th and beginning of the 20th century in Europe and the United States. At the time of the rise of the Nazi party in Germany, they were forced to bankruptcy in 1930. During WWII members of the family had to hide. Brothers Arthur, Eugen (both signed here) and Rudof were murdered in Auschwitz. - Other entries include notes, poetry and autographs by various circus and theatre artists such as members of the acrobat Déprient Family, Hadj Mohamed Ben Medani, a Japanese artist Hiramoto, who wrote a dedication in Japanese, and decorated it with a full page illustration and his photograph, the actor Richard Hungar (1860-1909), who draw his full size portrait, Alfred Heinen (i. e. Alkfred Levy, 1880-1943), Rose d'Arkansas, and others. Verses and dedications were also written by the family members - Brother Bruno Derrington, who carried on the family name in the circus business until the late 1930s, after other family decided to retire (with a photograph), - Sister Elfriede Derrington, who was probably the second female performer in the family circus bicycle act. - Brothers Otto and Arno, probably other two brothers in the circus troupe. - Käthe’s mother (first entry, dated September 6, 1899) and Father (1902).

        THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

      London: Bernard Smithers and Co, 1899. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. 228 x 157 mm. (8 1/2 x 6 1/4"). 8 p.l., 151, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. Original lavender cloth decorated in gilt, edges untrimmed and UNOPENED. With leather book label bearing gilt monogram "SSB" on front pastedown. Mason 381. Corners a little bumped, backstrip rather faded (as virtually always), crumpling and tiny losses to head and tail of spine, light toning throughout the interior (as with all copies because of paper stock), apparently lacking the final endpaper, but still a very good copy of a book extremely difficult to find in decent shape, the binding solid and atypically clean, with none of the usual cocking, and the text with no signs of use, having never been opened.This is Wilde's best-known work and a justly celebrated play that sparkles from beginning to end with unsurpassed sophisticated wit. Day says that "the play's lasting appeal arises from some of the most brilliant dialogue of the English stage," and it is generally accepted as one of the two or three best modern comedies ever written. Wilde, who gave the play the subtitle, "A Trivial Comedy for Serious People," said that "the first act is ingenious, the second beautiful, the third abominably clever." The plot turns on two cases of mistaken identity, with both young heroes falsely believed to bear the name of Ernest and in danger of losing their lady loves if their true identities are revealed. This volume is notoriously hard to find in pleasing condition, as the cloth always fades badly, and the structure of the book is weak.

        TALES OF THE WONDER CLUB

      [London]: Harrison & Sons, n.d. [1899-1900].. Octavo, three volumes: pp. [1-5] 6-401 [402] [403-404: blank]; [1-5] 6-388; [i-v] vi-viii [389] 390-662 [663-664: blank], 23 inserted plates with illustrations by John Jellicoe and Val Prince after designs by the author, original maroon cloth, front panels stamped in gold, spine panels stamped in gold and ruled in blind, white endpapers with floral pattern printed in olive-green, upper edges untrimmed. First edition. "Omnibus collection of 'bloodcurdling' tales with decidedly mid-Victorian flavor, in spite of publication date; set in an old-fashioned frame, too, told 'round the Yule Log at 'Ye Headless Ladye,' a Midlands hostelry of the old coaching days circa 1800, by an informal club of travelers and their hosts. Enlivened by a Dickensean mixture of the cold grue and the grotesquely humorous: like the fat boy, they 'only wants to make your flesh creep.' Notable tales include 'The Phantom Flea' and 'The Spirit Leg' in volume I; 'Execution' and 'The Waxen Image' in volume II; Volume III has no fantasy content being mostly taken up with Gothic melodrama 'The Gipsy Queen.' Literary curiosities which seem to have strayed from an Christmas annual circa 1865 into a triple-decker, probably self-published by the author. Binding, design, and illustrations are archaic for 1899." - Robert Knowlton. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 87. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-50. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 565. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 72. Bleiler (1978), p. 64. Reginald 06648 and 06649. Some spotting and scuffing to cloth, mostly volume one, hairline crack along inner front hinge and partial crack along inner hinge of volume one but both holding tight, a very good copy, superior condition for this book.
