        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 (spine a little darkened, rear endpaper slightly cracked). Pioneer that he was, in recent years Chesnutt has become a very highly-collected author. Provenance: booklabel and signature of H[arry]. L[egare]. Watson of "Sunnyside", Greenwood SC: it was actually not until 1906 that Watson purchased this 1851 estate (named in homage to Washington Irving) -- at which time Watson was editor and publisher of Greenwood's newspaper the Index-Journal, chairman of Greenwood's public school system, and a trustee of Furman University.

      - 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 BILDERWERK ERSTE 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. Durch einzelne, am Markt auftauchende Lieferungen können die meisten Exemplare jedoch später vervollständigt werden. Oeller, professor at Erlangen, is known for his large 'Atlas of Ophthalmology'. 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. Hirschberg 1029 (vol.XV/1, p.124; Becker Collection no.278; Fischer II (Nachträge), p.1139; Gorin, p.161. See Rucker & Keys. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        West African Studies

      1899 - 24 photographic plates, many with 2 images. First edition. 8vo, original cloth, fore and lower edges untrimmed. London, Macmillan. Inscribed on the title page 'H.M.Stanley Esq., from his humble and respectful admirer M. H. Kingsley'. A wonderful association copy uniting two of the leading European figures of the day, both of whose careers were inextricably linked to Africa. Kingsley presented West Africa in a far more interesting light than most of her contemporaries. In this work, she sets out her views on how it should be governed, and although she supported the British administration, she took great offence at its efforts to convert the locals to Christianity. The spine very slightly faded and with a small mark. Robinson, pp136-8. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Charles-Henry Hirsch dénonce le massacre des Arméniens dans le Mercure de France.

      - 1 manuscrit autographe signé 10 in-8 (grand) 16/06/1899 Cachet du Mercure de France daté du 16 juin 1899 au premier feuillet. bon Manuscrit autographe signé de la rubrique « Les Revues » de Charles-Henry Hirsch pour Le Mercure de France, juillet 1899 (Tome XXXI, n°115) composé de 10 pages recto (l'une double, numérotée 3/4) portant le texte manuscrit à l'encre de l'auteur, avec de nombreuses biffures et corrections, et les extraits des revues cités par l'auteur imprimés. L'ensemble est contrecollé sur papier bleu et comporte quelques indications de l'imprimeur au crayon gras, bleu et rouge. Dans cette chronique, Hirsch évoque de jeunes poètes méridionaux influencés par Rollinat : Henri de Régnier, Viélé-Griffin, ou encore Francis Jammes. Il cite ensuite un texte sur Bonaparte et le Consulat du Comte de Remacle. Puis il traite d'un article de Paul Stapfer sur le poids de l'opinion, avant de dénoncer des massacres en Arménie. Il termine en célébrant le charme des nouvelles aventures de Mowgli, de Kipling. La moitié du manuscrit, c'est à dire les 5 dernières pages, est consacré au massacre des Arméniens par le sultan Abdul-Hamid. "[.] Le 15 avril 1898, un iradé donne satisfaction à ces demandes ; mais ce n'est qu'une feinte. Quand le comité en a la certitude, il avertit les gouvernements des dix grandes puissances des propositions initiales du Sultan, de ses promesses formelles, et du peu de souci qu'il a de la parole engagée. Faut-il ajouter que pas un gouvernement n'intervient? Quelques grâces sont accordées, mais d'autre part, il y a de nouvelles arrestations. Le comité apprend que des massacres se commettent dans le district de Guzel-Déré [.]". Poète, dramaturge, il est également chroniqueur et auteur de romans populaires. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Importance of Being Earnest. A Trivial Comedy for Serious People by the Author of Lady Windermere's Fan.

      London: Leonard Smithers and Co, 1899 - Square octavo. Original pale purple cloth, gilt lettered spine, gilt floral motifs from designs by Charles Shannon on spine and covers, untrimmed. Bookplate to front pastedown. Spine and top of boards slightly sunned, spine ends a touch bumped, light offsetting from bookplate, occasional minor spotting to text block. A very good copy. First and limited edition, out-of-series copy out of an edition of 1,000 copies. 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". Mason 382. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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.

        Hunger

      Hunger - Knut Hamsun - One of the first Modernist booksHungerKnut HamsunLondon, 1899 One of the first Modernist works. A Dostoevsky-esque picture of internal strife and societal disgust. First edition in English. An important and scarce book. Original cloth with professional repairs to spine and new endpapers - half title present, no ads. The prone-to-fading gray cloth has retained its color. Considering its extreme scarcity, a desirable and good copy. One auction listing since its publication and an appearance in a 1930s bookseller catalog. A dozen copies are listed on OCLC which include those rebound and in states of disrepair. The highly influential classic of an unnamed, down on his luck writer struggling to survive in a bleak Oslo. Failing to make money writing, he falls into destitution and mental collapse. It's an amazing look into the human mind and how we struggle against our emotions, unfulfilled needs, and the masks that society expects us to readily wear to spare one another from our mutual ugliness.

        Eden versus Whistler. The Baronet and the Butterfly. A Valentine with a Verdict.

      Paris: Louis-Henry May, [1899] - Octavo. Original mustard-yellow cloth spine, drab yellowish paper boards, spine lettered in black, front cover lettered in gilt, Whistler's butterfly monogram in gilt on spine and front cover, untrimmed. Spine toned, a little wear to corners, some marks to covers, offsetting to recto of limitation leaf and verso of imprint at end, but a very good, clean, copy of a rather fragile book. Decorations by Whistler in the text. First and limited edition, one of 250 numbered copies signed by Whistler with his butterfly monogram. "Early in 1894 Whistler painted a small portrait of Lady Eden (Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, Glasgow), and her husband, Sir William Eden, sent £100 for it, which Whistler banked. Whistler exhibited the picture in Paris but refused to deliver it, and Eden instituted legal proceedings; whereupon Whistler returned the money but scraped out the figure, substituting that of an American sitter in its place, so that if he lost the case the portrait could not be recovered. At the civil tribune in March 1895 Whistler was ordered to hand over the portrait and pay damages; but after two appeals, in 1897 and 1900, Whistler was finally granted the picture and Eden was ordered to pay expenses. In Eden versus Whistler: the Baronet and the Butterfly (1899) Whistler published his account of the case, which entered French law by establishing that artists do not enter into ordinary commercial contracts of sale with their patrons" (ODNB).

        SIGNIFICANT 19th-CENTURY ARCHIVE OF THE BEACH & COOKE FAMILIES OF BRANFORD, CONNECTICUT, INCLUDING CIVIL WAR CORRESPONDENCE OF SAMUEL BEACH, 27th CONNECTICUT INFANTRY, AND HIS BROTHER-IN-LAW, SAMUEL G. COOKE, 50th ILLINOIS INFANTRY].

      Fredericksburg, Va.; Alexandria, Va.; Corinth, Ms.; other Civil War locations; various locations in Illinois and Connecticut. 1832-1899. - Approximately 200 letters, many with original transmittal envelopes, and three journals. Letters have typical folds and some fading, with mild toning. Journals somewhat fragile, two with perished spines, with some brittleness and toning to contents. Overall good to very good. A substantial archive of Civil War-dated letters and post- war journal entries written by Samuel Beach of Branford, Ct. and his brother-in-law, Samuel G. Cooke. The archive consists of approximately 200 items, including thirty-one Civil War-dated letters and one post-war journal featuring an account of the Battle of Fredericksburg written by Samuel Beach, 27th Connecticut Infantry. Also included are five pre-war letters and three war-date letters from Samuel G. Cooke, 50th Illinois Infantry and 44th USCT Infantry, in addition to over 100 family papers, documents, and letters spanning from 1832 until 1899; an 1860s farm schedule with musings about breeds of farm animals; and an 1860s ledger counting expenses from an oil mill among other places. On Dec. 13, 1862 Corporal Samuel Beach, 27th Connecticut Infantry Co. B, found himself in the middle of one of the bloodiest battles in the Civil War - Fredericksburg. He wrote in his post-war journal, penned by Beach in the 1880s: "Our troops all passed the fence coming on with every little opportunity. Like a wily tiger crouching for his prey to come within reach, [the rebels] watch and wait. The first line of the brigade are now coming to the line, and passing into the doomed area. The bursts of artillery on all the heights and the discharge of muskets from the fire and rifle pits. Was like a tremendous blow in the face." After his men faced the slaughter of the fence, they pushed forward. Beach and some of his friends from Branford sheltered themselves from the storm of bullets against a brick house. After their retreat, he went to the hospital to assess the damage and the wounded. Again, from his post-war journal: "I could hardly believe it [George Bennet] that marched along with us with the tread of a giant sat there his hair disheveled the sleeve of his coat cut off at the should and gone his arm shattered by a ball his face the picture of dismay. Our eyes met one short earnest gaze of recognition and his head dropped on his bosom then tears gushed out the great stout hearted George Bennet sobbed like a child." Beach and his friends tried to help their friend and desperately reached for his sleeve with his shattered arm, trying to clean him, while they waited for the overwhelmed surgeons and nurses to make their way towards their comrade. Beach's brother-in-law, Samuel G. Cooke was very enthusiastic about the cause and attempted to form a company at his home in Meridian, Il. In a letter from Meridian on June 29, 1861, a family friend wrote of Cooke: "[He] is one of the leading spirits. Everybody around here is full of patriotism or as Alice says everyone and their mother is full of fight." That fall, some men from Meridian, including Cooke, enlisted to be a part of the 50th Illinois Infantry, Co. A. Death soon greeted the eager young men, almost as soon as they stepped on the battlefield. Cooke wrote to Beach from Paducah on March 27, 1862: "A lady in Meridian received a letter from her husband last night the 50th were in the battle [at Pittsburgh, Tennessee]. He gave the names of the killed and wounded our boys were not mentioned so we thankfully conclude they are safe as she knows them well. One Meridian man was blown to pieces by a shell. He leaves a young wife and two little children.every field officer killed except the Major." Cooke experienced much bloodshed at the battle of Corinth. Later that fall, on Nov. 19, 1862, Cooke wrote a concerned letter to his brother-in-law from Mississippi: "We heard of hard fighting in Virginia and hope you are not engaged in it. The prospect is of another battle here soon the troops left here last night to dispute the crossing of the R___ by rebel forces supposed to be

I & II), THE COURT OF THE TUILERIES (VOL. I & II), THE FIRST OF THE BOURBONS (VOL. I & II), THE LAST OF THE VALOIS (VOL. I & II), THE OLD REGIME (VOL. I & II), OLD PARIS (VOL. I & II). 14 volume set 9 inches tall. Half maroon morocco fine binding by Mudie with the binder’s mark to the reverse of the free end paper.   Review Note: The Atheneum, February 18, 1899 "The present widespread interest in everything pertaining to French History, and the many calls for Copies of these Works, has led to the preparation of this new and complete Edition, carefully edited and well illustrated. The Titles of this celebrated Series indicate the scope of Lady Jackson's Writings, touching as she does on different periods of French History from the time of Henry of Navarre to that of Louis Philippe, and dealing with the manners and customs of the times, with chatty personal gossip taken from the memoirs of the brilliant men and women who flourished in this famous court. The writer has done her work most carefully, and at all times she is historically accurate. *The Edition being a limited one, the Series can only be supplied in complete Sets". Lady Catherine Hannah Charlotte Elliott Jackson (1824–1891), was the daughter of Thomas Elliot of Wakefield, and was also the second wife of Knight Diplomat Sir George Jackson (1785–1861), whom she married in 1856, and a prolific author in her own right, especially in the area of European history and of the court of France in the 16th century. After the death of her husband in 1861, she turned to literature, starting by editing the diaries and letters of her husband's early life. He was a distinguished diplomat, and is best known for accompanying Sir Charles Stuart to Germany and entering Paris with him in 1815, and for his efforts in connection with the abolition of the slave trade. On 19 June 1874 she was granted a pension in recognition of her husband's services. She then studied a variety of French memoirs, and compiled from them several books on French society. A few of the better known including "Old Paris: its Court and Literary Salons", appeared in two volumes in 1878, and "The Court of France in the Sixteenth Century", also in two volumes. Lady Jackson also wrote about art, especially Western painting, in her histories of the French royal court. In her book "The Court of France in the Sixteenth Century", she observed: "At about this time [speaking of the painter Raphael] only, movable pictures, to be hung on walls as ornaments, began to be in frequent demand. It is considered doubtful whether before the sixteenth century any such existed. For what would now be termed the easel pictures of the older masters have been detached from some articles of civil or ecclesiastical furniture."   Condition Report Externally Spine – good condition – very handsome spines top worn and scuff marks to the spines.

        The Man with the Hoe

      [San Francisco]: Sunday Examiner, 1899. First Edition. Poem famously inspired by the contemporaneous painting "L'homme a la houe" by the French artist Jean-François Millet. The piece was first read at a New Year's Eve party in 1898, launching Markham's career as a poet and lecturer to the working class. The painting, recreated on the upper panel of the present edition, shows a labor bent over by the weight of his toil, his face anguished and somehow simultaneously expressionless. Of him Markham wrote: "Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans / Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground / The emptiness of ages in his face, / And on his back the burden of the world." Presumed first published appearance of the poem according to Markham's biographical history in the Online Archive of California. The poem would also appear in a volume of Markham's poetry the same year, The Man with the Hoe and Other Poems. Folio (35.5cm.); pictorial bifolium printed in green, yellow, and black, author photograph printed on the upper panel. Closed tears and shallow losses along wrapper extremities, the whole rather toned due to poor paper stock. About Very Good and sound overall. Published as a supplement to the San Francisco Sunday Examiner, 1899.

        Kamajokk, Lappland.

      Olja på duk, uppfodrad på pannå. 22 × 34 cm. Oramad. Signerad och daterad: "Alfr. Thörne / Kamafallet 1899". Lappländsk friluftsstudie av Thörne från hans arbete med målningarna till planschverket Lappland. Det stora svenska framtidslandet (1908).Genom den intensifierade malmbrytningen vid Gällivare och Kiruna kom övre Norrland alltmer i blickpunkten för allmänhetens intresse vid denna tid. Norra stambanans tillkomst gjorde samtidigt dessa nordliga bygder mer lättillgängliga. 1908 demonstrerades det storslagna landskapet i ett praktfullt bokverk, Lappland. Det stora svenska framtidslandet, där flera konstnärer inklusive John Bauer och Karl Tirén medverkade med färgplancher och andra illustrationer.Alfred Thörne var rikt representerad i verket med sex färplanscher, som alla återger målningar från 1899 (plr. 4-6, 8-9, 15). Det är monumentala landskapsmålningar som dock färdigställdes först i ateljén efter resan, och där motivet ofta var tillrättalagt och anpassat för en viss komposition eller effekt.Denna oljeskiss från samma år är långt intressantare både topografiskt och konstnärligt, och utfördes av Thörne 'en plein air', dvs på plats direkt inför motivet. Som så ofta när det gäller friluftsstudier uppvisar den en helt annan friskhet och omedelbarhet än de ateljémålningar som var slutprodukten. Med snabb och inpirerad penselskrift dokumenterar Thörne det rusande Kamafallet och ger oss en mer trovärdig, detaljerad och levande bild än bokens stillsamma och nationalromantiska plansch 4: "Kvikkjokk, Pårtefjällen och Kamafallet i sommarnattsstämning". Där ges forsen en biroll utan repliker, underordnad fjällmassivet och den lågande himlen.Kamajokk är en tre kilometer lång lappländsk fors med utlopp i sjön Sakkat (Saggat) vid byn Kvikkjokk. Namnet är en försvenskad stavning av det lulesamiska Gamájåhkå, som betyder Dunderälven. Så här beskrivs området av Nils Johan Andersson, citerad av Gustaf von Düben i hans bok Om Lappland och lapparne (1873): "Qvikkjokks lilla kyrkoby är belägen i yttersta nordändan af Saggat-jaure. Härifrån till Sulitelma är vid pass 10 mil [enligt von Düben snarare 6-7 mil], och något mera än halfvägs häraf, öster om nämnde fjällklump, upprinna utur två ej synnerligen långt från hvarandra belägna små sjöar tvänne bäckar, som snart under sitt lopp genom tusentals bifloder växa ut till strida fjällfloder. De heta Kamajokk och Tarajokk och böja sig först bågformigt från hvarandra, tills de slutligen sammanfalla vid Qvikkjokk i Saggat. Kama kommer der dansande och hvitskummig norr ifrån, och sedan den under nära nog en half mil bildat en oafbruten, stenuppfyld fors, kastar han sig här i sjön utför ett fall, som om våren och efter starkare regnväder är bland de allra grannaste man kan se".
