        Tales of The Wonder Club.

      London; Harrison and Sons. 1899-1900. First Edition. 3 vols. 8vo. Publisher's original maroon cloth titled in gilt. Spines uniformly faded, some light edgewear, bumping and light fraying to spine ends. A very good, handsome and respectable set of a scarce collection of wonderful spine chilling tales and dramas. Recounting the anecdote filled meetings of The Wonder Club at a coaching inn evocatively called "Ye Headless Ladye" the stories have such titles as "The Pigmy Queen" and "Lost in The Catacombs", a frequently rather obscure stew of gothic melodrama, horror and fantasy, not unlike the "Phantasmagoria" of 100 years earlier. The triple decker design of the books is also notable archaic, putting one in mind of a Sheridan Le Fanu first edition from 50 years earlier rather than the type of book design favoured by the end of the 19th century. The eminent scholars and unstoppable researchers at Tartarus Press's Wormwood magazine recently solved the mystery of the identity of "Dryasdust" (itself a reference to Scott's tedious but indispensable scholarly authority) and have laid the responsibility (occasionally blame might be in order) at the feet of Alexander Huth, a British businessman and self publishing author. A handsome set of a scarce and supremely entertaining collection.

        Gesetz der Urgesundheitskunde. Erneuert zu München, am 21. und 22. Iuli 1847.

      Lithographierter Einblattdruck. 32 x 38,5 cm. Über KVK nur in der Stadtbibliothek Mainz und im Stadtarchiv München nachweisbar. - Sehr seltener Einblattdruck mit den 10 Thesen des Gesundheitsapostels Ernst Mahner zur "Urgesundheitskunde", die hier auf zwei Tafeln in der Art der Gesetzestafeln Moses abgebildet sind. Ernst Mahner hatte einige Jahre in Deutschland aufsehenerregende Auftritte, er "wandelte mit priesterlicher Würde in langem Gewande barhäuptig, mit wallenden Haaren und mächtigem Vollbart, durch die Straßen. Er hatte seine Heilslehre nach Mosis Vorbild in zehn Gebote gekleidet, schlug sie öffentlich an, wie Luther seine Thesen, und verteidigte sie öffentlich in Vorträgen gegen mäßiges Eintrittsgeld. Er eiferte wider die geistigen Getränke und das stinkgiftige Schmauchkraut, rühmte das Wasser und pries bombastisch die gütige Natur nach der Art der heutigen Naturärzte" (Adolf Kussmaul in "Jugenderinnerungen eines alten Arztes", Stuttgart 1899). - Kussmaul weiß über den komischen Heiligen weiter zu berichten: "Böse Zungen sagten ihm nach, sein Gesetz sei strenger als der Apostel gegen sich selbst, und behaupteten fest, sie hätten Mahner im weltlichen Gewande bei Trüffelpastete und Sherry im Hinterstübchen eines Mannheimer Restaurants überrascht. - Es wurde uns erzählt, er steige jetzt mit seinem Meister täglich auf den Königsstuhl, um dort oben im Walde auf den Wegen und Halden Sonnenbäder zu nehmen sie liefen fast unbekleidet barfuß einher. Leider hatte die Polizei kein hygienisches Einsehen, sie verbot diese stärkenden Übungen, um den Damen der Stadt den verleideten Besuch des Königsstuhls wieder zu ermöglichen. Mahner war wirklich ein ungewöhnlich abgehärteter Mensch. Die Zeitungen berichteten von einem erstaunlichen Schauspiel, das er an einem sonnigen Wintertage den Bewohnern von Mainz bereitet hatte. Auf einer Eisscholle stehend, in Sandalen und nur an den Hüften bekleidet, soll er, einen Becher Rheinwasser schwingend, auf dem Strom an der Stadt vorbeigetrieben haben. - Der Abhärtung ungeachtet, hat er kein hohes Alter erreicht. Verkommen im Elend, starb er im städtischen Hospital zu Konstanz." - Etwas fleckig und leicht gebrauchsspurig. Mehrfach gefaltet.

        The Ballad of Reading Gaol. By C. 3.3. [Oscar Wilde].

      Leonard Smithers,, 1899. Later Edition of the First Edition [7th printing of June 1899]. London, Leonard Smithers, 1899. 8°. 31 pages. Original Hardcover (Quarter vellum with mustard boards). Unusually excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Interior also in marvellous condition. 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.nnDuring 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.nnWilde 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".nnThe 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.nnThe 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".

        The Theory of the Leisure Class. An Economic Study in the Evolution of Institutions.

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1899 - Octavo. Original dark-green vertical grain cloth, spine lettered gilt and gilt bands at head and foot, covers with four blind rules at head and three blind rules at foot, top edge gilt, others uncut. Housed in a grey cloth solander box. Spine slightly darkened, minor wear to spine ends, a couple of small stains to cloth. An excellent copy. First edition, review copy sent to the American journalist and suffragist Florence Finch Kelly (1858–1939), with her ownership signature to the front free endpaper and her pencil marginalia throughout, particularly extensive to the final few leaves. Kelly was on the staff of various American newspapers, including the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times. At the time of the publication of the present work, Kelly wrote articles, columns, and book reviews for the Los Angeles Times. Norwegian-American professor Thorstein Veblen's first and most successful work was written as a serious economic analysis of contemporary America, but after William Dean Howells gave the book a rave review as a social satire, it became a best-seller. "Into it he poured all the acidulous ideas and fantastic terminology that had been simmering in his mind for years. It was a savage attack upon the business class and their pecuniary values, half concealed behind an elaborate screenwork of irony, mystification and polysyllabic learning" (DAB). "The treatise is essentially an analysis of the latent functions of 'conspicuous consumption' and 'conspicuous waste' as symbols of upper-class status and as competitive methods of enhancing individual prestige. Veblen's term 'conspicuous consumption' has become part of everyday language" (IESS) and in modern economy Veblen goods are those whose demand increases in proportion to their price, in contradiction with the law of demand.

        FÉCONDITÉ. LES QUATRE ÉVANGILES. Edition originale 1/50 ex sur Japon

      Paris, Librairie Charpentier et Fasquelle, 1899 - Paris, Librairie Charpentier et Fasquelle, 1899 2 volumes in-18 réimposés in-8 (24 x 17,5 cm), brochés, couverture papier décoré imprimée en rouge, exemplaire à l'état proche du neuf, entièrement non coupé (jamais lu). ÉDITION ORIGINALE. CELUI-CI, 1 DES 50 EXEMPLAIRES SUR JAPON.Il a été tiré en outre 250 exemplaires sur papier de Hollande. Les Quatre Évangiles est le dernier cycle romanesque conçu par Émile Zola de 1898 à sa mort en 1902. Il est inachevé puisque seuls les trois premiers romans de la série, Fécondité, Travail et Vérité ont été publiés. Justice, le dernier projet du romancier, n'a été qu'ébauché.Fécondité, le premier opus du nouveau cycle, est un roman dans lequel Zola expose ses thèses natalistes. Zola avait exposé ses thèses natalistes dans un article en 1896. Il y évoquait le projet d'un roman sur ce thème, provisoirement intitulé Le Déchet dans lequel il se proposait de s'élever contre la limitation volontaire des naissances qui provoquait selon lui « une tragédie morale et sociale ». La natalité était en effet à la veille de la Revanche, une problématique nationale. Le roman est basé sur une opposition stricte et rigoureuse entre le couple Froment et leur douze enfants, incarnant le bonheur, et ceux qui se limitent volontairement à une petite progéniture, voire ceux qui la refusent totalement. À ceux-là, la déchéance sociale et les malheurs de la vie. Il expose toute une série de problématiques liées à la dénatalité comme l'abandon des enfants et leur traitement par l'Assistance publique, la contraception, l'avortement, l'infanticide, qu'il met en scène dans des épisodes mélodramatiques. Le roman est publié en feuilleton dans L'Aurore de mai à octobre 1899, puis en volume le 12 octobre chez Fasquelle, en pleine tempête issue du nouvel épisode de l'affaire Dreyfus après la nouvelle condamnation du capitaine. C'est la valeur morale de l'œuvre qui est remarquée, plus que ses qualités littéraires, bien que fortement critiqué par la droite nationaliste. Le livre fut remarqué par Sigmund Freud, qui le rangea parmi les dix ouvrages les plus intéressants qu'il ait lus. (source : Wikipédia). "Le dernier degré de l’horreur était franchi, il ne pouvait descendre plus bas. C’était bien l’enfer suprême de la maternité. Il se rappelait ce qu’il avait vu chez Mme Bourdieu, la maternité coupable et clandestine, les servantes séduites, les épouses adultères, les filles incestueuses venant accoucher en secret, sans nom, de tristes êtres ignorés qui tombaient à l’inconnu. Puis ici, chez la Bouche, c’était le crime hypocrite, le fœtus étouffé avant d’être, ne naissant que mort, ou par la violence expulsé, encore incomplet, expirant au premier souffle d’air. Puis, ailleurs, partout, c’était l’infanticide, le meurtre avoué, l’enfant né viable étranglé, coupé en morceaux parfois, plié dans un journal, oublié sous une porte. Le chiffre des mariages n’avait pas décru, la natalité avait baissé d’un quart, et tous les égouts de la grande ville roulaient des petits cadavres. Dans ces bas-fonds de la déchéance humaine, il sentait maintenant l’obscure infamie, le vent de tant de drames, de tant d’assassinats cachés, lui passer sur la face. Et l’épouvante, c’était que cette femme, cette basse et lâche assassine parlait haut, semblait convaincue de sa mission, lui disait des vérités qui le bouleversaient. La maternité ne tombait à cette folie meurtrière que par l’abomination sociale, la perversion de l’amour, l’iniquité des lois. On salissait le divin désir, la flamme immortelle de la vie, et il n’était plus que le rut qui engrosse au hasard les femelles qui passent. Le tressaillement des mères, au premier coup de l’enfant, devenait un frisson de terreur, la crainte de mettre au jour le fruit redouté d’un malentendu, le besoin de le détruire dans son germe, comme une herbe mauvaise dont on ne veut pas. Un cri d’égoïsme montait, plus d’enfant, rien qui vienne détruire les calculs d’argent ou d’ambition ! Mort à la vie de demain, pourvu que [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Il est l'un des fondateurs de la Société Zoologique de France, dont il deviendra lui-même président. Il effectua plusieurs expéditions hivernales en Mer Rouge, où il amassa une collection dont il fit don au Muséum. Le présent ouvrage ouvre sur une étrange dédicace de l'auteur "À mon livre" : "Ah ! si j'avais su te donner ce mordant de nos journalistes, ce décolleté et ce parfum réaliste de nos littérateurs, ou cette éloquence fluide de nos orateurs ; tu serais acclamé et tu ferais le tour du monde sans laisser, comme tant d'autres, aucune trace de ton passage dans le cerveau amaigri de tes lecteurs ; si encore je t'avais nourri avec le lait de la génisse universitaire ; tu trouverais peut-être un plus sot qui t'admire. Mais non, dans ma folie j'ai joint à tes aliments le sophisme au sarcasme, l'ironie à l'incrédulité ; et, pour rendre ton sang plus artériel, j'ai infiltré dans tes veines la synthèse, l'analyse, la logique et la philosophie..."
