Wallace is perhaps best known today as the co-discoverer of evolution by natural selection, independently of Darwin. In 1858 the two men co-authored the first publication on natural selection (Tendency of Species to Form Varieties; and on the Perpetuation of Varieties and Species by Natural Means of Selection), though it was not until Darwin's publication of On the Origin of Species that the theory had a major impact on the scientific world.

Marginal toning and edge wear to matte, else fine condition. Verso is backmarked, ""Taber / BAS-RELIEF PHOTOGRAPHS"".

        Kim. Publisher's proof sheets and galleys

      Edinburgh: R & R Clark [printers],, August 1900. with the author's extensive holograph revisions and corrections in black ink. Set of octavo page proofs with running title "Kim O'Rishti" numbered pp. 27?-64, set of long galleys, 380 x 255 mm, of 19 four-page gatherings, text printed in two columns per page, columns numbered 57?-202, with one gathering (columns 65?-72) duplicated but with some differing corrections. Each with set with intermittent blue stamp of Clark printers under right text columns of galleys and right corner of page proofs. The page proofs correspond to pp. 27?-97 and the galleys correspond to pp. 129?-413 (the end) of the first English edition in book form. Some minor small creases or closed marginal tears to galleys and proofs, never affecting text or corrections. Provenance: from the personal collection of Kipling's friend and American publisher, Frank Nelson Doubleday. Rudyard Kipling's fully corrected proofs of Kim, used for both the first London book publication and the second, corrected American edition. There are extensive edits comprising over 3,000 changes to single words or emending short sentences and with the addition of the verse chapter headings. These proof sheets represent the authoritative complete state of the text for book publication. Kipling worked on what most critics agree is his best novel for seven years, his excitement growing as at last he neared completion of the manuscript for what the author and his publishers intended to be a major publishing event. Kipling enjoyed a close personal friendship with his American publisher, Frank Nelson Doubleday, whom he had dubbed "Effendi". In late 1899 he wrote enthusiastically to Doubleday of "finally licking Kim into shape." Serial publication began soon after, with McClure's running the instalments from December 1900 to October 1901 in the US and Cassell's Magazine in England from January to November 1901. Kipling's original intention had been to publish in book form in autumn 1900, but this had to be postponed to allow serial publication to be completed. Meanwhile for publication in book form, Macmillan and Company of London, Kipling's usual publisher, employed R. and R. Clark of Edinburgh as printers, who supplied sets of printed proofs to the author. The galley proofs here have Clark's stamps, variously date-stamped 20?-28 August [19]00. Kipling corrected one set of these proofs and sent them to Doubleday for the first American edition, published by Doubleday, Page & Company on 1 October 1901. That first set of proof sheets sent to Doubleday is now in the Houghton Library at Harvard, a gift from Kipling bibliographer Flora Livingston. They are described by David Alan Richards as "corrected by Kipling in red ink, consisting of 96 pages of page proofs and the balance being galley proofs, each stamped "[date] Aug 00 R. & R. Clark Printers, Brandon St., Edinburgh". The page proofs are date-stamped variously 15?-17 August 1900, and the galley proofs (numbered in columns 49?-207, and printed in double columns on one side of the leaf) date-stamped variously 20?-28 August 1900. The text is that of the periodicals, the running-head line is 'Kim o' the Rishti' (the story's original title), and the verse headings have all been stricken through and those used in this First (American) Edition substituted by the author in Chapters VIII and XIII. Except for the title, the First (American) Edition follows exactly the corrected text of this proof." The present set of proofs mostly conforms to Richards's description, except that here there are only page proofs present for pages 27?-96, while the galley proofs here are numbered in columns 57?-207. The galleys from column 121 to the end have the shortened running headline "Kim". One galley is marked "Queried Proof" at head and all but one of the galleys mostly marked in ink at top left "Doubleday" with a manuscript trigram. Especially interesting here is the presence of a duplicate sheet for the galley containing columns 65?-72, the only galley not marked "Doubleday". This galley has "Proof wired for yesterday" written in blue pencil at the top (not in Kipling's hand), and it contains the exact text of the first English edition (and second American edition) with final corrections in Kipling's hand. It does not have the R. & R. Clark printer's inkstamp, even though it is from the same setting of type; apparently Kipling ordered another sheet of that galley to be run off to send his final corrections to Doubleday. In light of the present set of proofs, it becomes clear that the Houghton proofs are only lightly corrected, and that the first American edition was in effect rushed into print before Kipling had made his final corrections. These proofs demonstrate that Kipling continued to work on his retained copy of the same August 1900 galleys, making corrections that we were incorporated into the text of the first English edition, which was registered for copyright by Macmillan and Co. on 17 October 1901, and then used for the second American edition, published days later by Doubleday on 23 October. The most noticeable change is that the first American edition carried only the verse chapter headings for chapters VIII and XIII, whereas they were present for all chapters in both the English serial issue and the first English edition, but there are many other changes, especially in chapters V through X. This is a remarkable insight into Kipling's working method for his best novel, showing the editorial process working across the Atlantic and more than one set of carefully corrected proofs. While single poems of Kipling have occasionally come to market in corrected proofs, nothing of this substance has appeared in commerce to date.

        Concerning Children

      Small, Maynard & Company, Boston 1900 - 1st edition/1st printing. 1 of only 2000 copies printed. This author was quite well-known in her day as a feminist and an activist for women's rights, and as an author writing about women's issues. She was the grandniece of Harriet Beecher Stowe. Her best known story, "The Yellow Wallpaper," is about a woman who suffers from a mental breakdown due to the birth of her child and the prescription of isolated bed rest from her physician husband, which paralleled some of the events of her own life. She co-edited the Pacific Coast Women's Press with socialist Helen Campell. When she turned to lecturing, she became well known for her discussion on women's topics. With the book "Woman and Economics" in 1898, she emerged as a spokesperson on such topics as women's perspectives on work and family. She co-founded the Women's Peace Party in 1915 with activist Jane Addams. Bound in dark blue cloth with gilt printing and gilt & green decorations. The half-title page is the first page and there is a very narrow paper-only slit at the gutter; however, the book is very firmly bound and very tight. It is straight, clean, and has no handwriting or damage to the text paper. There are small areas of wear to the binding cloth at the tips of the corners and spine ends, a trace of rubbing to the "N" and "C" in 'Concerning" on the front panel, and the cloth and printing of the spine is a bit dulled. A very scarce book, and really in quite excellent condition. ; 7-1/2" x 4-7/8"; 298 pages [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Canal Scene

      New York:, undated [1900].. Fine/ . Fine condition. Original Charcoal on paper. Image size: 11 x 15 inches. Sheet size: 12 1/2 x 19 inches. The canal scene is an unusual departure from Charles Livingston Bull's animal and nature compositions, and quite unlike his other work found to date. Perhaps due to its geometric nature- it was an early study on perspective. Nevertheless, the confident use of tonality predicts his eventual command of charcoal as his desired medium for rendering any subject matter.

        [Collected Works.] Warwick Edition

      Boston: Dana Estes & Co.,, [c. 1900]. 32 volumes, octavo. Bound in green half morocco, titles and one-line rules gilt, raised bands, marbled sides and endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Illustrated in colour and monochrome. Some slight wear to corners, otherwise a handsomely bound set in very good condition. The Warwick edition, number 201 of 1000 copies only. The latest and most handsome of no fewer than 25 multi-volume collections of Bulwer's complete novels issued in Britain and America between 1875 and 1900. One of the most prolific and successful Victorian authors, Bulmer was outsold only by Dickens, and only Dickens was more widely translated. He it was who persuaded Dickens to alter the denouement of Great Expectations, Dickens having earlier profited from his friendly rival by borrowing the ending of his French Revolutionary novel Zanoni for his Tale of Two Cities. Bulwer's coinage of the term "vril" in his dystopian satire, The Coming Race, one of the earliest English examples of science fiction, lives on in the name of the famous beef extract product Bovril (a composite of "bovine" and "vril"), and his line "The pen is mightier than the sword" has forever embedded itself in the language.

        The Indians of To-Day, Illustrated with Full-Page Portraits of Living Indians

      Chicago: Herbert S. Stone and Company, 1900. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Folio. pp [8], 185, with index, 55 plates from photographs by Rinehart. Original pictorial cloth, top edge gilt. Very slight bumping to lower corners, mild foxing to front endpapers, else fine. A native of New York, Grinnell had a deep interest in the life and culture of the Plains Indians, and made summer trips from the East to reservations, where he recorded Native American history and culture. "In 1895 President Grover Cleveland, aware of Grinnell's knowledge of Native American customs, had sent him as a special commissioner to help obtain a treaty with the Blackfoot and Fort Belknap Indians. Later, as President Roosevelt's personal emissary, he negotiated a land controversy on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota" (ANB). According to the Preface, this work was inspired by a visit to the Indian Congress held in Omaha in 1898 in conjunction with the Trans-Mississippi International Exposition, which stimulated among its white attendees "a desire to know more about [the Indians], their past and their present, and the outlook for their future." In response to this interest, he offers chapters on history, folklore, and customs, as well as life on the reservations and the character and role of Indian agents.

        Autograph Manuscript Signed of his poem "Custer"

      N.p. [New York], n.d. [1900?] - When news of Little Big Horn spread, one of the first of many poems to appear was Edmund Clarence Stedman's "Custer", in the CHICAGO TRIBUNE of July 16, 1876. That version of Stedman's poem was among the first to give voice to the myth of the lion-maned young warrior who was cut down savagely by a "wolvish foe"; and that version was a much longer poem that this brief, 10-line elegy, no doubt written much later by a poet better informed by the truth. Now there is no blood-thirsty, savage foe -- but Custer's "deathless spirit" still manages to mount to the stars 8vo. Fair copy, one page, on a single sheet of personal letterhead.

        An early, rare, and very visual Harry Houdini "challenge" broadside

      "Broadside, ""IMPORTANT. NOTICE. I offer $100.00 to any human being living that can escape from all the cuffs I carry, and from which I release myself ... (no place, c. 1900) 8.5"" x 11"". Light toning with two tape marks at center of top margin not affecting text, a few areas with slight ink bleed, marginal tears and partial folds expertly repaired on verso, else very good. An early broadside printed soon after vaudeville impresario Martin Beck discovered Houdini in 1899 and gave him his first big break. Billed as ""The Expert Handcuff Manipulator,"" Houdini also offered a ""$50.00 REWARD ... to any on that can escape form the Bean giant, but that offer is for the cuffs to be fastened behind the back."" The ""Bean Giant"" handcuffs were a favorite of Houdini's. He used them to challenge rival escape artists, even offering them the key, while of course understanding that the configuration of the keyhole would make it impossible for one to reach. The broadside is one of the earliest and most visual of its kind that we can locate and may be unique in its survival. This an early incarnation of what would become a common form of advertisement for Houdini's performances, challenging anyone, amateur or professional, to recreate his famous escapes. "
