        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 The Importance of Being Earnest, Wilde's last play, opened to great acclaim on Valentine's Day 1895 but was withdrawn after Wilde's failed libel suit against Lord Queensbury led to his arrest.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).

        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".

        Tosca Melodramma in Tre Atti di V. Sardou - L. Illica - G. Giacosa... Riduzione per Canto e Pianoforte di Carlo Carignani (A) netti Fr. 15 -

      [Milano]: G. Ricordi & C. [PN 103050 prefixed by various letters: e, q; G; U; v; n; h; o; r; i; z], 1899. First Edition, first issue. Rare. Hopkinson 5A. Fuld pp. 605-606. Schikling 69.E.1. Crawford p. 360. Tosca, to a libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica after Victorien Sardou's play La Tosca, was first performed in Rome at the Teatro Costanzi on January 14, 1900. "None of Puccini's operas has aroused more hostility than Tosca, by reason of its alleged coarseness and brutality; yet its position in the central repertory has remained unchallenged. Not only is it theatrically gripping from start to finish: it presents the composer's most varied and interesting soprano role, hence its perennial appeal for the great operatic actress." Julian Budden in Grove Music Online.. Quarto. Publisher's original light blue boards with decorative stamping gilt, composer's name and title on light pink ground within two separate rectangular decorative borders gilt, decorative endpapers. 1f. (recto half-title, verso blank), 1f. (recto blank, verso reproduction bust-length photographic portrait of Puccini), 1f. (recto title, verso publisher's copyright statement), 1f.

        An American Four-in-Hand in Britain.

      New York, 1899. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author to his attorney on the dedication page, "G[ibson] D[avid] Packer Esq Friend & Veteran With regards Andrew Carnegie January 18, 1903." The recipient G.D. Packer took charge of the legal department in the 1880's of the Carnegie Steel Company, continuing until after their merger with the United States Steel Corporation. He was a close associate and friend of Carnegie's. In very good condition. A nice association. The Gilded Age and the dawn of the 20th century are often remembered as an era full of monopolies, trusts, and economic giants in heavy industries like oil and steel. Men like John Rockefeller built empires and financiers like J.P. Morgan merged and consolidated them. The era also made names like Astor, Cooke, and Vanderbilt instantly recognizable across the globe. Over time, the unfathomable wealth generated by the businesses made the individuals on top incredibly rich, and that in turn led to immense criticism and an infamous epithet used to rail against them: robber barons. Dozens of these men would be pilloried as "robber barons," but few of them were as wealthy or influential as Andrew Carnegie, who built America's foremost steel empire. Ironically, Carnegie epitomized the American Dream, migrating with his poor family to America in the mid-19th century and rising to the top of the business world in his adopted country. A prodigious writer in addition to his keen sense of business, Carnegie was one of the most outspoken champions of capitalism at a time when there was pushback among lower social classes who witnessed the great disparities in wealth; as he once put it, "Upon the sacredness of property civilization itself depends--the right of the laborer to his hundred dollars in the savings bank, and equally the legal right of the millionaire to his millions." In a similar vein, he said, "Those who would administer wisely must, indeed, be wise, for one of the serious obstacles to the improvement of our race is indiscriminate charity." While Carnegie's rise and wealth didn't necessarily separate him from other 19th century business magnates, it was in the field of philanthropy that he left his most unique mark, even as it paved the way for others to follow his lead. One of his most famous quotes was that "the man who dies thus rich dies disgraced," and for the last 15 years of his life, he contributed to countless causes.

        [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, 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 the advance of General Bragg commanding was heard in that direction.... Since I last wrote you I have been attached from the reg and am in the engineering department under Capt Capell we have four or five hundred contrabands working on the fortifications." Little did Cooke know, that in a month his brother-in- law would be in the thick of fighting just as he had been at the Battle of Shiloh earlier that Spring. Cooke experienced more action at the Battle of Corinth and unexpectedly in the winter of 1864 while on a scouting journey. He wrote from Lynnville, Tn. on Dec. 23, 1864: "The fourth day of the last scout we fell in with a gang of rebs surprised them and captured a major and four men with the horses, army saddles, bridles...the gang most of them escaped by running in the woods. The captured maj told our col, that there was a regt and a half within 20 miles of him coming to meet him which caused him to feel quite uneasy...he feared they would capture the whole of us before we could get back however we escaped them and arrived in camp about 8 next morning." Cooke left his regiment for a promotion to first lieutenant of the 44th USCT, Co. A on September 9, 1864, but resigned a year later on May 25, 1865. While Cooke served on the front, Beach spent a considerable amount of time in the hospital due to back issues, colds, and other ailments. While recovering from the measles in convalescent camp in Alexandria, Va., he wrote his wife on July 14, 1863, "My health is much the same don't think I should be able to destroy Lee's army alone I hope Meade will succeed in doing so." Earlier in the year, the regiment experienced an epidemic of illness that took the lives of twenty-two men, including his friend George Baldwin. Beach wrote to his wife from Falmouth on January 25: "George [Baldwin] was a good soldier he enlisted from motives of patriotism and principle...he was what we call too conscientious and contrived to perform his duties when unable to his great, if not fatal disadvantage, Few pierced that terrible storm of bullets at the Battle of Fredericksburg to a point so much the enemy worlds as he. Few came nearer being killed than he, a ball passing through his cap. But the hardships and exposure of the march, and the battle of Fredericksburg was a terrible sacrifice all over the land especially to the 27th. And the poor soldier that remains turns inquiring what is the gain for all this expense of valuable life and treasure." Beach and the men cried over the loss of their friend and thought of his funeral from the front. One mother, who went to the front to retrieve her dead son; however, received the shock of her life. Beach explained, in a letter from a division hospital near Brooks Station, Va. on May 24: "A Mrs. Patterson came here last night after the body...she had been to the front and engaged a surgeon to embalm his body and then came here to the Hospital for his body. When she alighted from the ambulance who should step out of the ward but the very son she was after. Probably there was few happier women in this country than she last night." Beach finished his service and mustered out of the army on July 23, 1863, soon after fighting hard at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. The remainder of the archive consists of various family papers mostly concerning Connecticut and farming. There is also a sizable collection of letters speaking of an amusement park Beach opened in Branford after the Civil War.

        Durch eine bergige Landschaft fahrender Zug bei Sonnenschein.

      - Farbkreiden, auf dünnem chamoisfarbenem Velin (Blatt aus einem Zeichenblock, am oberen Rand gezackt). 41:25,3 cm. Mit sauber restaurierten kleinen Einrissen in der linken unteren Ecke, sauber restaurierter kleiner Papierverlust im Oberrand, schwache Verfärbungen von alter Montage in den Ecken. 1899 studierte der Maler und Graphiker Walter Ophey an der Technischen Hochschule in Aachen und besuchte die Kurse Figuren- und Landschaftszeichnen sowie Aquarellmalen bei F. Reiff (1835-1902). Nebenher belegte er Abendkurse an der Kunstgewerbeschule Aachen. Bereits ein Jahr später arbeitete er im Atelier des Aachener Bildhauers K. Kraus (1859-1906). Gegen Ende dieses Jahres setzte er seine Ausbildung an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie fort und war erst Schüler von E. Roeber (1849-1915) und W. Spatz (1861-1931), ab 1904 von E. Dücker (1841-1916), dessen Meisterschüler er wurde. Nach einer ersten Ausstellungs-beteiligung noch in diesem Jahr zeichneten sich die ersten öffentlichen Erfolge ab. 1909 gründete er gemeinsam mit den Düsseldorfer Malern J. Bretz (1870-1953), M. Clarenbach (1880-1952), A. Deusser (1870-1942), W. Schmurr (1848-1959) u.a. die Gruppe „Sonderbund", die in den nächsten Jahren eine der bedeutendsten Ausstellungsbewegungen der Moderne in Deutschland wurde. 1910 unternahm er eine Reise nach Italien, 1911 nach Paris. Nach Kriegsausbruch eingezogen, wurde er bereits 1915 wegen einer schweren Lungenentzündung entlassen und arbeitete nach der Genesung im Militäramt Düsseldorf. 1919 wurde er Mitglied der Künstlervereinigung „Das junge Rheinland". Nach 1928 schlossen sich diese Vereinigung sowie die „Rheingruppe" und weitere Düsseldorfer Künstler zur „Rheinischen Sezession" zusammen. Dem plötzlichen Tod seines dreijährigen Sohnes 1924 folgten Depressionen, die ihn bis zu seinem Tod zunehmend schwächten. Wenige Monate später unternahm er gemeinsam mit seiner Frau eine Reise nach Italien, 1925 zog es ihn nach Sizilien. Da sich bereits 1927 Opheys gesundheitlicher Zustand aufgrund asthmatischer Anfälle und Herzbeschwerden zunehmend verschlechterte, folgten Kuraufenthalte an die Ostsee, im Harz und Garmisch-Partenkirchen, die jedoch keine Besserung brachten. Walter Ophey gehört neben A. Macke (1887-1914) und H. Nauen (1880-1940) zu den wichtigsten Vertretern des Rheinischen Expressionismus.
