      Boston & NY: Houghton Mifflin, 1900. First edition, first printing. Minor rubbing to silver cover design, mostly to belt on rear board, bookplate to front pastedown, owner name penned to top of front free endpaper, else very good. Original greenish-black cloth with silver belt design and lettering in silver and greenish-black, octavo, (252)pp, flyleaf at rear. Frontispiece by Maynard Dixon. Vintage photographic print of Jack London mounted to front free endpaper, Jack London's bookplate laid in. The first printing, numbering 2028 copies, was on March 21, 1900. The second printing was not issued until July 13, followed by a third printing on September 25. London’s publishers did not follow their usual practice of removing the date from the title page for the first two reprints of this title (until the fourth and subsequent printings) resulting in some confusion regarding the identification of the true first printing. Jacob Blanck in the "Bibliography of American Literature" (BAL) clearly identified the salient points in 1969; an earlier reference "Jack London: A Bibliography" by Hensley Woodbridge, et al, made some statements in error regarding this title, which still persist. This copy with first printing collation per BAL, and with tipped-in (not sewn) frontispiece, as well as the misplaced comma following the year, 1900, on copyright page (corrected with a period on subsequent printings). These 2 points are found only on BAL first printing collation. (BAL 11869, Sisson & Martens page 2).

        The Effects of Cross and Self Fertilisation in the Vegetable Kingdom [Uncut]

      John Murray, London 1900 - 8vo: viii,487,[1]pp, with one diagram, 109 tables. Original publisher's standard green pebbled cloth, covers paneled in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, black end papers, book plate on front paste down. As with first edition, spine title spells "fertilisation" with a "z," while title page uses an "s." The text of this edition remains unaltered up to p. 370, where the addition of a large footnote necessitated resetting of the remaining pages. A truly superlative example, completely uncut (unopened) and virtually pristine. Freeman 1260. Second Edition, fifth impression. Meant as a complement to "Fertlisation of Orchids," but "too technical and too detailed to command a wide sale." (Freeman) N.B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Dietrich Riemer, Berlin 1900 - Riesen und Studien. 436 pp, Map, pull out folding map in rear, photo with tissue guards, text illustrations. Meyer is the first to have successfully climbed this noted mountain. His book is a landmark of African travel and mountaineering literature. This true first edition in German is beautifully produced with maps, text illustrations and full pahe ill. on extra thick paper. The entire book is printed on very thick coated stock. Bound in printed green cloth, beveled boards. Engraved bookplate of H. Debusmann. The binding is very clean and there is only slight wear at corners (unusual for this thick and heavy book). There is one slight bump on the lower front cover but it is mainly in the beveled board and no obvious until one really looks for it. Almost imperceptible and unobtrusive blindstamp of Munger Africana Library. The outside gutters and inside hinges are firm. I doubt the map has ever been taken out of the map pocket.

Armorial bookplate of Robert William Rogers. "First published in 1789, the main book takes the form of a series of letters to the natural historian Thomas Pennant and the antiquary Daines Barrington, giving a remarkable account of the special habits of the animals he observed. The work 'holds a unique position in English literature as the solitary classic of natural history… an invaluable record of the life work of a simple and refined man who succeeded in picturing himself as well as what he saw. The reader is carried along by his interest in the results of far-sighted observation; but, more than this, the reader imbibes the spirit of the writer which pervades the whole book and endears it to like-minded naturalists as a valued companion'" Cambridge History of English Literature. This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US.

Backstrip reinforced when recased. Original backstrip worn at ends and darkened. Covers otherwise reasonably attractive with some soiling and wear. No Jacket. Illustration and cover design by R.

"Contending Forces" was her first novel and the only one published in book form during her lifetime. She wrote extensively over the next few years, mainly for the "Colored American Magazine" for which she also served as an editor. Ill health and financial need curtailed her writing career and Hopkins returned to less glamorous but more financially secure work as a stenographer.

      1900 - grand in-folio à l'italienne Chicago, 1900, , grand in-folio à l'italienne [610 x 450 mm], [2] pages et 59 planches, l'ensemble manuscrit, dessiné, encré et aquarellé, contrecollé sur feuillets forts et monté sur onglets, demi-chagrin rouge à coins, titre doré sur le plat supérieur, Exceptionnel album de dessins réalisés selon les instructions du professeur Hanstein, par les élèves de l'École Supérieure de dessin de Chicago, compilé et relié pour être présenté à l'occasion de l'Exposition universelle de Paris 1900. Il se compose comme suit : le titre calligraphié avec très grand soin, la préface signée "Herman Hanstein. Surintendent [sic] du dessin sans les E.S." en anglais et en français manuscrite au verso*, suivie des 59 planches de dessins, contrecollées au recto et au verso sur 30 feuillets forts ; figures et constructions géométriques, modèles de construction et de décor architecturaux, machines industrielles, etc. Parmi elles, 17 sont rehaussées au lavis et 5 à l'aquarelle. Quelques signatures d'élèves sont encore lisibles, en dépit du rognage des planches : W. Smith, Louis H. Edbrooke, Henry W. Clausen, Henry Hackard, W. Napheys, Fred P. Fellows, W.S. Webber, P. Barth, Fred Schott, B. Natkin, J. Burtch, W.Z. Nourse, Chas Haugan, A.S. Field, Ernest Noods, Sam[ue]l Pruyn, F. McNair. Herman Hanstein (1843-1917) arrive d'Allemagne aux États-Unis en 1863. Après le grand incendie de 1871 il s'installe à Chicago, où il enseigne le dessin technique à la Central High School pendant plus de 40 ans ; en 1894, il publie son cour composé d'exercices à l'adresse de ses assistants et de ses élèves, sous le titre Constructive Drawing, réédité en 1904 et en 1908. Notre album contient plusieurs dessins réalisés d'après ces exercices : Paraboles, tangentes au cercle, arcs persans et gothiques, spirale ionique, dessin d'une fenêtre gothique en pierre, paire de roues dentées, "to construct an epictroid and a hypotrochoid", etc. Hanstein devint professeur au Lane Technical College Preparatory High School, fondé en 1908. Il était également fabriquant de jouets et on lui doit l'invention d'un compas et de deux instruments de dessin géométrique, le rotostat et le goniostat (c.f. : Hanstein, "The rotostat and goniostat : a teachers' class room device for instruction in projection". School Science and Mathematics , vol.9 (9), 1er déc. 1909). Notre volume est à mettre en relation avec un grand volume de la Chicago City-Wide Collection, contenant 82 dessins, toujours réunis sous le même titre et dans le même but par Hanstein : "United States of America Public Schools of the City of Chicago. High School Drawings Department. Herman Hanstein, Supervisor. Paris Exposition. 1900". Une note manuscrite dans ce volume nous apprend que l'exposition de l'École Supérieure de dessin fut un succès et fut récompensée lors de 3 évènements où elle s'est présentée : à Paris en 1900 (Grand Prix), à Buffalo en 1901 et à Charleston en 1902 (1st award and diploma pour ces deux dernières). Chicago City-Wide Collection [Box #, Folder #], Special Collections, Chicago Public Library (Box 86). Reliure restaurée. Légères traces de moisissures sur quelques planches. Une planche a été manifestement arrachée, une autre, réparée, s'est cassée à la suite d'une pliure. * Texte de la préface : "Projection Perspective Shades and Shadows and Mechanical and Architectural Drawing.

        Examples of advertising art produced by John R. Gill for projects undertaken by the Art Engraving Company of St. Paul, Minnesota, and the Seattle Engraving Company of Seattle, Washington, during the first two decades of the 20th century, as represented in printed examples, clippings, and tear sheets, and mounted in a period album.

      1900s and 1910s, Seattle, WA, and St. Paul, MN 1900 - Oblong 4to album, with 48 sheets of stiff black paper bearing 81 items (another seven are laid in), some in color, one or more pieces mounted per page, some overlapping each other, or trimmed artistically to fit the page. The advertisements appear to be the work of the designer/illustrator John R. Gill; his photograph, at work in the offices of the Art Engraving Co. of St. Paul, as well as his business cards and billheads, are in the album. A second photograph is identified in a later hand as from the Seattle Engraving Co., picturing an office with four employees. The advertisements for commercial businesses, railroad companies, real estate enterprises, car companies, tourist guides, and caricatures, etc., primarily in Seattle and St. Paul, represent the techniques offered by the engraving companies Gill worked for, including wood engraving, zinc etching, line and half-tone engraving, photo lithography, commercial photography, illustrating & designing; two of Gill's pencil sketches for ads are also included. Some of the ads are in full color, most are black & white, a few are duplicates. In addition to the Art Engraving Co. and the Seattle Engraving Co., a few individual items were done by the Western Engraving Co., the Kennedy Co., and the Standard Printing Co. The work includes illustrations for advertisements, bill heads, stationery, post cards, technical publications, trade cards, etc., and cartoons, portraits, etc. Some wear to a few of the laid in items, occasional spotting to a few others, very good overall. Original black textured cloth. (7178) John Gill emigrated to the United States from England, working as an illustrator and designer in St. Louis, Missouri, and in St. Paul, Minnesota, before moving to Seattle about 1901. There he was a member of the Associated Cartoon Artists of Seattle, which produced a vanity cartoon book of local Seattle businessmen "Cartoons & Caricatures of Seattle Citizens" in 1906; a clip of Gill's caricature of the lawyer P.P. Carroll, prepared for that publication, is included here. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        REMINISCENCES OF KYUSHU [cover title]

      [Various locations in Japan, 1900. Ten leaves containing eighty photographs, each 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches. Oblong octavo. Contemporary black three-quarter morocco and cloth. Hinges and corners lightly worn. Bookplate on front pastedown. Light foxing, primarily to mounts and not images. Prints sharp and clear. Very good. Eighty attractive images of turn-of-the-century Japan, as seen through a Western lens. Evidently narrating a trip in Japan, each photograph is captioned in English, usually stating location. Locations include Kagoshima, the Kuma River, Kumamoto, Nakatshu, Fukuoka, Nagasaki, and Isahaya. While most of the images show landscapes and the scenery of the area, many of them include local people - at temple and shrines, in city streets, going about every day life. Of particular interest are a photograph of a woodcutter's hut, with the family in the foreground, a fortuneteller plying his trade, a group of young men washing vegetables, a view of Suizenji Park, a Buddhist Temple, threshing rice, the sulphur springs at Nagasaki, and various scenes in native villages. A nice collection of images, with the bookplate of New Zealand photo-historian Frederic Hardwicke Knight.

        The Importance of Being Earnest.

      London: Samuel French Ltd, 26 Southampton St., n.d. [c.1900]., 26. French's Acting Edition, 'The Dramatic Works of Oscar Wilde' No.1. pp.52. Publisher's decorative pale green paper covers printed in black with 'Gothic' title in two lines (some show the title over three lines, priority unknown). Original price 1d,.6s. Some trivial handling, chip to lower quarter of spine; near fine. An uncommon printing, not quite conforming to Mason's version; the preliminary leaves and adverts were never included here (ie the eralier text) yet the revised (later) address appears on the imprint. In addition, the binding is the earlier wired (not sewn) construction. A bibliographical complexity, but at least it's in nice shape. Mason 384.
