        St. Augustine (Turn-of-the-Century Photo Album)

      Original wraps. Very Good +. Uncommon photo album of St. Augustine, Florida, c. 1900. Billed as the oldest city in the United States (or, more accurately, "the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement in the U.S."), St. Augustine is obviously rich in history and this album includes a number of its most historic spots, such as: "Old City Gate", "The Sea Wall", "Fort Marion". "Hotel Ponce de Leon", "Hotel Alcazar", "St. George Street and Old House" and "Old Slave Market", etc. The printed photos are all crisp and bright and have white-lettered captions. And the ribbon-tied, olive-green covers (with their decorative flourishes) have held up nicely but show light offsetting along the edges. Oblong quarto, a wonderful celebration of "old" St. Augustine.

        Fanfulla della domenica

      Montecuccoli Raimondo, - Nove volumi in folio (mm 478x340) che raccolgono i fascicoli, pubblicati a cadenza settimanale, dal 1900 al 1914. Ogni fascicolo consta di 4 pagine. Alla fine di ogni annata sono presenti preziosi indici. Legatura in tela rossa. I primi tre volumi presentano titolo in oro sul piatto anteriore, nei restanti nove il titolo, sempre in oro, è invece al dorso.

La sua pubblicazione riuscì ad imprimere un'accelerazione culturale e costituì una svolta nel panorama intellettuale italiano. Su "Fanfulla della domenica" furono pubblicati gli scritti di grandi lettereari ed artisti, da D'Annunzio a Carducci, da Capuana a Chiarini, senza tralasciare la schiera di brillanti scrittrici Serao, Neera, Deledda, Perodi.

        Autograph letter signed. N. p. o. d.

      1900. 8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium. To a colleague, commenting on one of his articles which he does not seem to value much: "Mon cher confrère: Je ne savais par que l'article sur le drame venait de paraître dans le 'Cornhillmagazin'. En tous cas je ne puis pas en disposer avant le mois de Février ou Mars 1900. Il a été cédé pour une année, corps et âme, original et traduction, à la Societé de la 'Library of famous littérature'. Du reste, l'article, fait sur commande et sur un sujet plus ou moins imposé, ne vaut rien, et je l'ai bâclé en quelques heures [...]".

        7 rare offprints from Michael F. Guyer including the 1900 Spermatogenesis of Normal and Hybrid Pigeons

      Various, 1900-1922. PAMPHLET. 7 rare offprints including the important Spermatogenesis of Normal and Hybrid Pigeons which Guyer wrote to Thomas H. Morgan in 1910 "First I should like to call your attention to the inclosed clipping from an article of mine which appeared in the ZOOLOGICAL BULLETIN, II, 5 for 1899. At a glance you can see that it deals essentially with what we now call the Mendelian phenomena although at that time, of course, Mendelism had not yet had it's renaissance. At the time the article was published I had not figured out the Mendelian ration of 3 to 1, although I was aware that there were more brown than white birds among the grand-decensants. The point I want to make, however, is that in this return to grand-parental types I had a definite problem in mind which I was seeking a solution." * Two of the offprints are Compliments of the Author, with one signed in full. One has the ownership signature of Sewall Wright. The Guyer/Morgan letter can be found in our blog. List of offprints available. . Very Good.

        La Décoration et les Industries d'Art à l'Exposition Universelle de 1900

      Delagrave, 1900. In-4° (325x250mm), pp. VII, 130, bella brossura originale Liberty a decori floreali impressi en camaïeu elegantemente stilizzati, il tutto da disegno di Georges Auriol (egli è indicato con il semplice monogramma). Antiporta incisa da Jean Patricot (Lalique, Devant de Corsage). 27 tavv. in b.n. f.t. e numerose figure in b.n. intercalate n.t. Dorso restaurato. Discreto esemplare in barbe. Edizione originale di questa superba monografia sulle arti decorative e applicate all'Esposizione Universale di Parigi del 1900, fra i più importanti volumi dedicati all'Art Nouveau in tale àmbito estetico. L'opera documenta la produzione di artisti ed atelier come Lalique , De Feure, Gallé, Guimard, Tiffany and Co., ecc., nella grandiosa esposizione parigina, trattando di ogni possibile declinazione delle arti decorative: oreficeria, mobili, arazzi, legature, oggetti di uso comune, pizzi, ricami, vasellame, ecc. Roger Marx (Nancy, 1859-Parigi, 1913), padre di un altro celebre critico come Claude Roger Marx, fu critico e storico dell'arte dallo spiccatissimo e pionieristico gusto anche per le arti decorative e applicate (egli fece approntare una sezione ad esse dedicata al Salon del 1891) e strenuo difensore delle avanguardie estetiche del proprio tempo, segnatamente dell'Impressionismo. Da subito ardente sostenitore del movimento impressionista, fu amico personale di Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Paul Cézanne, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Auguste Rodin ed Eugène Carrière (che gli dedicò un noto ritratto).

        Autograph letter signed. Berlin-Friedenau, 4. V. 1900.

      1900. Large 8vo. 1 p. To Maximilian Harden, sending some corrections of an article by Ernst Horneffer about the Weimar Nietzsche Archive. - The Nietzsche Archive had seen its first serious crisis in the winter of 1896/97 when Elisabeth Foerster-Nietzsche wanted to win Rudolf Steiner as publisher and dismiss Fritz Koegel. The subsequent negotiations with Steiner failed, however, as he expressed sharp criticism of Foerster-Nietzsche, which culminated in the assertion that Mrs. Foerster-Nietzsche was completely unqualified to judge "in all matters concerning the teachings of her brother". - Slight damage to edges, partly repaired; very rare.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Th. Herzl"). [Wien], 9. IV. 1900.

      1900. 1 S. 8vo. Auf Briefpapier der "Neuen Freien Presse". An einen ungenannten Rezensenten: "Sehr geehrter Herr, Ihre sehr freundliche Besprechung von Gretel habe ich mit aufrichtigem Danke gelesen. Hochachtungsvoll [...]". Am Samstag, den 7. April 1900 hatte Herzls Vierakter "Gretel" (ursprünglich betitelt "Die sündige Mutter") im Raimund-Theater seine Premiere gehabt. Herzl verfasste es während der Vorbereitungen zum Londoner Vierten Zionistenkongreß, denen er nach eigener Aussage weniger Aufmerksamkeit widmete als seinem Schauspiel. Herzls Beschreibung der Hauptfigur zeigt überraschende Parallelen zu seiner Auffassung vom Judentum, dessen schlummernde Bestimmung er sich bemühte, seinem Volk zum Bewußtsein zu bringen: "All the gifts and possibilities of the adult woman are already evident in [Gretel]. And it is her peculiar charm that she never knows nor suspects the existence of what is already awake in her. In her glance you read all the measure of intelligence that one needs for life, for, fortunately for her, she does not know what life is ... She lacks only knowledge, experience, destiny; otherwise she is a complete human being" (zit. n. A. Chouraqui, A Man Alone: The Life of Theodor Herzl, S. 168). - Unveröffentlicht.

        BIZERTE en son passé, son présent, son avenir. Trente-six illustrations en couleurs de l'auteur.

      Paris J. Rothschild, 1900. In-4 relié demi-maroquin ocre, titre doré aligné verticalement sur dos plat, (couverture rempliée conservée), 79 pages. Ouvrage superbement illustré de trente-six dessins aquarellés hors-texte. Quelques faibles rousseurs, intérieur assez frais, reliure en parfait état et de belle facture. Bel exemplaire, rare, et complet de ses planches. Louis-Salvador ( 4 août 1847, 12 octobre 1915 à Brand s nad Labem, Bohême) était le fils du grand-duc de Toscane, Léopold II, et de son épouse Marie-Antoinette de Bourbon-Siciles. Avec son « ondine bien-aimée », l'archiduc a sillonné la Méditerranée des décennies durant, généralement avec un équipage dune vingtaine de personnes, sans compter des chiens, des chats, des oiseaux, des singes ou tout autre bête, si bien que les contemporains ont appelé le navire "lArche de Noé". Larrivée dans les ports des compagnons de voyage de l'archiduc, bigarrés et hétéroclites, suscitait toujours une intense curiosité, ce qui se comprend parfaitement. Louis-Savator sest souvent adonné, accompagné de son secrétaire mallorquin Don antoni Vives et de guides connaissant bien le terrain, à de longues excursions pendant lesquelles il décrivait dans tous leurs détails, le paysage, la flore, la faune, la population et la culture de ses escales. Il avait toujours un petit calepin de la forme d'un globe, de quoi écrire et du papier. De cette façon, il s'est constitué une collection de croquis parfaitement maîtrisés qui illustraient ses descriptions. Louis Salvador a rassemblé toutes ces informations en de volumineux manuscrits quil a fait imprimer, à ses propres frais, chez l'éditeur pragois Mercy sous la forme de livres luxueux. Sur un tirage de 500 exemplaires en moyenne, l'archiduc offrait alors ces éditions rares à des amis, des collaborateurs et à d'autres personnes ou institutions intéressées par son travail

        "Iskra" ("Spark"). 42 issues, with 15 supplements. Leipzig, Munich, Stuttgart, London, and Geneva, 1900-1905.

      1900. Folio. 2 vols. The political newspaper of Russian socialist emigrants, founded by Lenin as the official organ of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party, was the first general Russian Marxist newspaper. Printed on lightweight Bible paper, it could, with great difficulty, be smuggled into Russia. The first issue was published in Leipzig on December 24, 1900, the second in Munich, later issues in Stuttgart. To evade the Tsarist secret police, the printing of the newspaper was moved London in April 1902. In 1903, after the split of the RSDLP, Lenin left the staff, and the paper was seized by Mensheviks and published (now in Geneva) under the control of Plekhanov until 1905. "The years of its publication are referred to as the 'Iskra years' of the revolutionary movement" (cf. Kluge). The editors were Lenin, Plekhanov, Martov, P. B. Axelrod, Vera Zasulich, and A. N. Potressov. Lenin penned more than 50 articles for "Iskra", developed its political slant, planned the issues and found the authors. While the average circulation was 8,000, it is today very difficult to find copies - unsurprising in view of the illegal production and distribution. The present collection comprises nos. 1 (1900/1901, including "Ot Redaktsii"), 4, 6, 8-10, 15, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26, 64, 37, 39, 40, 46, 49-58, 62, 64, 77-80, 82-87, 89, 93, 94, and 112 as well as the supplements to nos. 43, 44, 52, 53, 56, 62-64, 67-70, 77, 101, and 112. - Slight paper defects restored.

        London to Ladysmith via Pretoria

      Longmans, Green, and Co., New York 1900 - This is an unusually clean copy of the U.S. first edition of Churchill's fourth published book. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria is the first of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted between the descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa and the British. Churchill, an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter, on 15 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria contains 27 letters and telegrams to the Morning Post written between 26 October 1899 and 10 March 1900. It was published in England in mid-May 1900 and sold well. Churchill returned from South Africa in July 1900 and spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, where he won his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election". The American edition offered here is more scarce than the British, with a single printing of which no more than an estimated 1,850 copies were sold. This edition is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine. This is an unusually clean and bright copy which we grade conservatively as very good plus. The binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and only light wear to extremities. This copy has been substantially spared the blotchy wear and spine darkening that most copies suffer, and retains bright spine gilt with only light, uniform spine sunning. The contents are notably bright with no previous ownership marks. All maps and plans are intact, including the folding maps, which remain properly folded. The top edge gilt is bright. Trivial spotting is confined to the fore and bottom edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.2, Woods/ICS A4(b), Langworth p.55. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Klondike Stampede - Profusely Illustrated

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1900. 470 Pages. Not a library book. Red cloth boards with gold lettering to front and spine. Spine is faded and sun-darkened. No other defects noted. Interior text and illustration pages, including the fold-outs are flawless. This classic in Yukon gold rush literature was originally published in 1900 and has long been out of print. Tappan Adney, a New York journalist, was dispatched to the Yukon in 1897, at the height of the gold fever, to furnish news and pictures of the new gold fields, Adney joined the northward migration, chronicling the day-to-day experiences of the stampeders. He moved comfortably among the would-be miners, recounting their stories, the sights along the route, and the hopes and fears of the many men - and handful of women - who shared his journey to the gold fields. The book contains excellent descriptions of the people, places, events, and experiences of the Klondike stampede. The account of the Klondike gold fields, which includes pragmatic discussions of such things as mining techniques, cabin-building, and the operation of dog teams, is solid, reliable, and fascinating. Adney was not only a good writer, he was also an accomplished photographer, and there are over 150 photographs and drawings in the text, four of which are large fold-outs, adding an important visual dimension to the book. After it came out, The Klondike Stampede rarely received the attention it deserved, although northern specialists have long found much of value in its pages. Contents In 23 Chapters: Arrival of Excelsior and Portland with Treasure and News of Great Strike, Outfitting in Victoria, Landing at Skagway, Pack-horses go to Dyea, Departure for Dyea, Sheep Camp, Departure from Bennett, Former Hudson's Bay Post, Klondike City Dawson First Impressions, Choosing a Cabin Site, Dogs and Dog-driving, Kinds of Gold Mining Varieties, Story of the Klondike Discovery, The Staking of Bonanza, Midwinter Short of Grub, Spring in the Yukon, Flood at Dawson, Hundreds of Miles of Claims, Midsummer in Dawson, Government in the Klondike Mining Laws, Vegetation and Agricultural Possibilities, and Last Steamer for St Michael.
