        Concerning Children

      Boston: Small, Maynard & Company. VG+/NONE. 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 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 .

        Maurice Bertrand, Cornucle, Gustave Chouchou, Julia, D'Arcy, Marthe Helly

      [c. 1900]. Size: 570 x 385 mm. Framed size 740 x 385 mm. Lithograph. Printed colour. Good condition. Georges Goursat (1863-1934), known as Sem, attained a high level of success with his wonderful portrayals of Paris at the turn of the century. This outstanding caricaturist was a member of the Salon des Humoristes and an officer of the Legion of Honor. His works offer us glimpses into Parisian high society at the turn of the Century. Sem's unique talent made his work very identifiable, particularly because of the essential sobriety of his composition, in which his characters usually emerge from a white or plain background rather than being more obvious caricatures. Sem captured the spirit of the subject and in turn produced images that were true to life. This beautiful print is a part of the Album Vert published in c.1900.

        Viktor Rydberg

      About 1900. A photo engraved copper plate 64 x 46,5 cm + image printed from the plate 54,5 x 40 cm (the wole sheet 75,5 x 56 cm). Some scratches and small damages to the surface of the cooper plate. The paper image with a couple of creases to the blank margins. Nice condition.. Here we have a recently discovered photogravure plate depicting the famous swedish writer Viktor Rydberg. A newly printed image from the plate is also supplied. The printing plate was manufactured around the year 1900, after an original painted by Albert Edelfelt in 1895. Edelfelt is one of Finlands finest artists. Reproduction of art by photoengraving had its breakthrough in the 1880s. and was fully developed by the turn of the century. The method was acctually first pioneered by Fox Talbot in the 1850s. Basically, a photograph of the painting is transferred to an aquatinted and light sensitized copper plate by appplying light through a photo positive. The plate is then etched whereafter you can print copies from the plate. Surviving printing plates are very rare

This copy has the title page in the second and usual (cancelled) state: at the time this was being published, Doubleday & McClure was dividing into two entities (Doubleday Page and McClure Phillips), with uncertainty as to which firm would retain the rights to LORD JIM. Thus, in the first (integral) state the copyright is "1900 by Doubleday, Page & Co.", while in the cancelled state the copyright is "1899 and 1900 by Joseph Conrad." ~This is a near-fine copy (spine very slightly sunned, light wear at the extremities). With the penciled signature of Conrad bibliographer Walter E. Smith. Cagle A5b(2).

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1900. First Edition. Typical darkening of the spine but the lettering is still readable. The spine tips, usually found frayed, are rubbed and soft but intact. The text is fresh and bright. Most importantly, both hinges--nearly always found split, cracked, or repaired--are here completely intact and original. A Near Fine copy and quite scarce in this condition. Publisher's wine-red cloth stamped in black. Dreiser's first and most important book, both a modern classic and a genuine rarity with only 1000 copies printed and those copies suppressed by the publisher due to the book's unflinching depiction of an innocent girl's spiral downward. Many believe that as few as 100 copies now exist. An uncommon opportunity to obtain a landmark book, one of the scarcest of the twentieth century, a book that paved the way for a host of writers to come in dealing frankly with sexual situations that previously were either hushed or sensationalized. After Harper and Brothers declined to print the novel, Dreiser approached Doubleday, Page, and Co., because it had published the writings of Frank Norris, a promising naturalistic writer whose novel McTEAGUE had recently caused a stir. Norris was an advisor for Doubleday and enthusiastically supported the publication of SISTER CARRIE, later calling it "the best novel I had read in M.S. since I had been reading for the firm." Based on Norris's favorable praise, junior partner, Walter Hines Page, promised Dreiser that Doubleday would publish the book. However, after reading Dreiser's manuscript, Frank Doubleday objected to the immoral behavior of the novel's characters and urged his firm to reconsider its publication. After finding that Doubleday and Page was legally obligated to print the novel, he allowed its publication but refused to promote it. As a result, the novel sold only 456 copies, and Dreiser received a mere $68.40 in royalties. It was only after Dreiser had established his literary reputation with later novels and after a 1912 reprint by Harper and Brothers had been published that the story of SISTER CARRIE was acknowledged for its stark and realistic depiction of a young woman's struggles. Though many would not think of Theodore Dreiser as an advocate for women's rights, this novel was enlightening in its portrayal of a young single woman's struggle to survive in a post-Victorian urban environment. His work shortly after as editor-in-chief of the magazine THE DELINEATOR provided further evidence for Dreiser's concern for women's struggle to survive in early 20th century American society. And of George Hurstwood, the well-to-do married man who has an affair with Carrie, Joseph Epstein has said, "Dreiser has created the most persuasive portrait in literature of a man in social, psychological, physical, and moral decline.

He and the SPRAY were never seen again and no clue to his fate was ever found."

        An album of original watercolours of birds, with title 'Gefiedertes Volk' [Feathered Folk]

      [Germany: circa 1900]. Oblong folio. (9 1/2 x 14 3/4 inches). 1p. original calligraphic title in blue red and gold inks and wash within original watercolour decorative surround of a wood and twined-ivy frame with three birds and a background of the jungle at dawn, 1p. original calligraphic index in German in blue, green and gold inks and wash, 85pp. of thin blue card, mounted recto and verso with 178 original ornithological watercolours on watercolour paper (7 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches and smaller) by a single hand (two signed 'G.Rauber'), most with integral title in German in black ink identifying the subject of the watercolour. Original dark blue half cloth, shaped paper label mounted on upper cover with calligraphic title in blue and red 'Aquarelle'. A charming and wide- ranging collection of original ornithological watercolours. All the birds are shown against a carefully painted background, most images are of single birds, but a significant number of drawings include two or more species or varieties. As the index makes clear the birds are carefully collected together under eight different headings: the 'Sänger' or songbirds section includes the Baltimore oriole, golden oriole, song- thrush, nightingale, black cap, the hill mynah and about 12 other species; the 'Finkenvögel' or finches includes the cardinal, bullfinch, chaffinch and about 25 other species, 'Prachtfinken' or showy finches is slightly misleading as a title as this section includes a variety of brightly- plummaged birds that are often found in captivity, but are not finches: canaries for example, and the birds in this section are intermingled with the 'Webervögel' or weaverbirds, with a total of about 59 watercolours of about 94 individual birds. The section on 'Papageren und Sittiche' or parrots and parrakeets includes 25 drawings of cockatoos, the African gray, macaws, budgerigars, parrakeets and love-birds. The remaining three sections: 'Hühnervögel' or chickens, 'Schwimmervögel' or waterbirds and a final category for various other sorts of birds: 'Diverses gef Volk' are all intermingled, but include a total of 55 drawings of both exotics and better known species like the blue-jay, swan or jackdaw.

        Flying A Kite

      : , ca 1900. - Wain Cats Fly KiteWAIN, Louis. "Flying A Kite." An original watercolor and gouache drawing, c. 1900-1905.Signed at lower right. Matted, glazed and framed. Approximate image measurement: 14 1/2 x 19 1/2 in; 370 x 505 mm. Framed: 25 1/2 x 29 3/4 in; 660 x 755 mm. A colorful, charming and amusing depiction of a "father" cat flying a kite with the help of his three kittens.At the end of the nineteenth century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. "He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (H.G. Wells)."From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled [a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!" (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).A wonderful early example of a Louis Wain original watercolor drawing.

        Deutschlands Heer und Flotte in Wort und Bild. Germany's Army and Navy by Pen and Picture. 1899

      Akron, OH: The Werner Company, 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/No Jacket. Book. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. Text in German and English, with one column on each page devoted to each. Original pictorial cloth. 17.5 by 13.5 inches (44 by 35 cm); [8], 181 pp., with 42 fine, bright chromolithographic plates of military costume, ships, and troops on parade, drilling, on horseback, reconnoitering and scouting, bivouacking, in the field and barracks, engineering -- in short, these are far more than static costume illustrations but rather ones that depict action scenes. Published by Werner, which was a leading German American publisher in the late nineteenth century that began by publishing a German newspaper in the U.S. This, being a bilngual publication, was perhaps the company's most opulent book that clearly was aimed at appealing to Teutonic patriotism of the immigrant community well before the First World War squelched this type of fervor. Similar chromolithography "Wort und Bild" books were also being published in Germany itself, such as ones celebrating the Franco-Prussian War,yet this particular title is artistically superior to much of the genre. It might also be observed that the genre was not unique to German culture. (I.e. Ogden's Uniforms of the Army, depicting American army costume throughout the nineteenth century, published just a few years earlier.) Again, for dynamism and beauty of the image, this title is hard to beat. Some binding wear, and joints repaired at extremities. Interior is tight and extraordinarily clean. Plates are pristine, and even the tissue guards may be described so.
