        Presentation album of photographs by J.H. Lithgow, Launceston, Tasmania, 1900

      Oblong quarto, half morocco over gilt lettered cloth boards (rubbed, lower board discoloured), front paste-down with calligraphic manuscript presentation inscription 'Mr. & Mrs. R.W. Hart. With sincere wishes for their Happiness and Prosperity, from Mr. & Mrs. J.H. Lithgow. 17.4.1900'; containing [24] toned carbon print photographs in format 150 x 200 mm, mounted recto and verso of 12 album leaves of thick card, all with calligraphic captions beneath the image; scattered mild spotting to the mounts, the carbon prints all fine or near fine. J.H. Lithgow, a professional chemist in Launceston, was a talented amateur photographer and a member of the Northern Tasmanian Camera Club. Lithgow produced this highly artistic and breathtakingly beautiful album of his own photographs - all of them superb toned carbon prints of Tasmanian scenes (with the exception of the last, a Glenelg seacsape) - to present to the prominent Launceston couple, Mr. and Mrs. R.W. Hart, possibly on the occasion of their marriage, in April 1900. The colour of the prints alternates between various shades of blue, green, sepia and grey, and the subjects include the Salmon Ponds; New Norfolk; the Derwent; the Lachlan; Russell Falls; Collins Falls; Lady Franklin's willows; Quamby estate, near Launceston; Corra Linn; hop picking, and a fox hunt. Chris Long, in Natural Colour Photography in Australia 1895-1960 (an appendix to Gael Newton'sShades of Light online)notes that in 1907 Lithgow, in partnership with F.E. Burbury, acquired the first autochrome plates to arrive in Australia. The album of Lithgow's photographs we offer here is a magnificent example of pre-Federation amateur photography in Australia.

        [NEW GUINEA; MISSIONARY] Dictionnaire de la langue de Roro-Mekeo

      Unpublished manuscript. Undated, but circa 1900. Small quarto size notebook, 230 x 180 mm, bound in heavy boards covered in hessian cloth, the upper board with the blind stamped crest of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, Issoudun, front paste-down with a printed map of France laid down, manuscript title page (almost detached) 'Dictionnaire de la langue de Roro-Mekeo. J.M. Vitale Miss. du S.C.', unpaginated, containing approximately [200] leaves with manuscript entries in magenta ink recto and verso; Father Joseph Vitale's dictionary of Roro and Mekeo, Austronesian languages spoken by the indigenous people of Yule Island (the site of the Sacred Heart Mission) and the adjacent mainland on the southern coast of New Guinea; the pages divided into three columns and arranged alphabetically, with the French words and phrases in the left hand column and their equivalents in the centre and right hand columns; the binding has virtually disintegrated but the work is apparently complete, contained within the boards as a series of disbound quires; the pages are remarkably clean and well preserved. The Sacred Heart Mission at Yule Island was established in 1885, and Father Vitale was among the first group of missionaries to arrive there, working with the native Roro and Mekeo speakers both on Yule and at nearby stations from the 1890s until his death in 1947. His dictionary, which was never published, dates to the first generation of contact that the Roro and Mekeo people had with Europeans. It is very much a 'frontier' work, compiled in the field under trying conditions, and it records these languages as they would have been used prior to any external influence. A manuscript of paramount importance in the field of Austronesian linguistics.

        La lune à un mètre : Souvenir de l'Exposition 1900

      [Paris : Exposition Universelle, 1900]. Lithograph on tinted paper laid down on board, as issued; circular format, diameter 400 mm; a couple of surface marks and tiny amounts of paper loss at the right edge, otherwise fine; mounted in a glazed frame. A striking souvenir "poster" produced for the Exposition Universelle held in Paris between April and November, 1900. The design is based on an image from the groundbreaking film by Georges Méliès, La lune à un mètre (1898), more famously known by its alternative title Le rêve d'un astronome (The Astronomer's dream).It was used to advertise one of the most popular attractions at the exhibition, a powerful telescope known as La grande lunette. Constructed specifically for the exhibition by Paul Gautier, the telescope was the centrepiece of the Palais d'Optique, andwas advertised under the rubrique La lune à un mètre (The moon from a distance of one metre). With the aid of this telescope, views of the moon's surface were displayed on a giant screen; these images were produced by the astronomers Maurice Loewy and Pierre Henri Puiseux as a series of large photographs which were printed for the public in stereoscopic and carte de visite format. The Exposition Universelle, which received 50 million visitors, was a showcase for the technology of the present and future. This poster celebrates marvellous advancements in both science (La grande lunette was the world's largest refracting telescope) and the arts (by drawing its design from the most recent of inventions, the motion picture).

Very rare first and only edition of a catalogue of military and other instruments, models of machines, plans, etc., that Faulhaber displayed in the "Kunstkammer" in his house in Ulm. Johann Faulhaber (1580-1635), taught mathematics at Ulm, where his family moved around 1461, after serving as vassals of the Abbot of Fulda. He became the most important of the "Cossists", mathematicians concerned with algebra. After publishing his first arithmetic text, Faulhaber founded his own school in Ulm in 1600, which grew into an internationally famous educational institute for higher mathematical sciences. He later added an artillery and engineering school. Descartes came to study with him, and Faulhaber had a lively contact with Kepler. Applying mathematics to military engineering, the building of fortifications and the art of fire-arms, Faulhaber was also much in demand as fortification engineer, receiving commissions from the King of Sweden and many others. He published a large number of mathematical works, mostly in German, and invented a number of instruments and machines.Two different readers have checked off items in the catalogue, perhaps indicating those in their own collections.In very good condition.

        LORD JIM

      1900. [a fine copy] A Tale. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1900. Original light green cloth decorated in black. First Edition of Conrad's fifth (and many would say his greatest) book, the psychological study of a mariner trying to recover his lost honor. Conrad planned to write only a short story when he began LORD JIM, with an eye toward forming a volume consisting of it, "Youth" and "Heart of Darkness"; however, once he got going, the story lengthened into six times its conceived size, and of course it had to become a book unto itself.~Published in an edition of 2,105 domestic copies in October 1900, LORD JIM was bound up without an ad catalogue -- so copies do not "vary" by ad date, like the later YOUTH. This is a remarkably clean copy, with virtually no wear and scarcely any soil -- FINE, other than some light foxing on the first few leaves, and on the page edges; there is a faint endpaper signature dated "Xmas 1900". We find LORD JIM to be the toughest of Conrad's first editions to find in fine condition. Cagle A5a.1.

        Lord Jim.

      London: William Blackwood & Sons, 1900. First edition of one of Conrad's finest novels. Octavo, original cloth. A near fine example with some wear to the extremities and the endpapers ever so slightly browned. First printing with the first issue points including the misprints "anyrate" p. 77, l. 5, "cure" (instead of "cured") p. 226, 7 lines from the bottom, the omission of "keep" after "can" p. 226, 7 lines from the bottom, and "his" p. 319, last line, being printed below the line. "In a moment of crisis, an idealistic ship's officer abandons his post, leaving several hundred passengers to drown. The event at the center of Joseph Conrad's acclaimed novel establishes the character and fate of Jim. Tormented by his defection from his code of conduct, Jim embarks on the globe-traveling quest to regain honor. In the process, he insinuates himself as a leader among a people unaware of his past. Arthur Symons and other critics read Lord Jim as an exploration of Conrad's own 'ideal of an applauded heroism', an ideal that confronts the demands of pragmatism. Others see an allegory for Conrad's guilt over abandoning his native Poland or, alternatively, a story of universal shame. Conrad has come under modern attack for associating 'natives' with chaos and evil. But in Conrad's novels, it is ultimately the colonial system itself that is fraught with horror." (NYPL Books of the Century 67). Listed by Modern Library as one of the 100 great novels of the twentieth century.

Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1900, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding editor to bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, gilt small iron and double gold in net queue.Douze numbers from January to December 1900. conservées.Chaque number Covers Edition is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Henry Bataille, Paul Claudel, Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide, Francis Jammes, etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine owned by the first wave Small journals Symbolists. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular contributors, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), the Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. The Hermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time as the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] which deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his state of mind symbolist, employees are more interested in poetry than novel. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, says that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddles the fin de siècle aestheticism and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1900. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Henry Bataille, Paul Claudel, Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide, Francis Jammes, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

Some scattered minor soiling or age-darkening to some album pages, photographs overall in very good condition, a few with minor fading, some of the photochromes with wear or loss. Most photographs 5" x 7". Oblong 4to. 3/4 leather album, professionally repaired. N.p. (various cities in Mexico) circa 1900. Homer Scott, born in 1880, was a founding member of the American Society of Cinematographers in 1919, but in his early years he made several trips from El Paso, Texas into Mexico to photograph both sides of the Mexican Revolution. During one trip he was arrested and nearly executed as a spy before being released. He took photographs for several publications including the New York Herald, founded the Scott Photo Company, and worked with the Mexican War Photo Postcard Company. Charles Burlingame Waite was originally from California, and worked briefly in El Paso before moving to Mexico in 1896. He opened a photography studio in Mexico City that remained in operation until Waite left Mexico in 1913. During those years Waite photographed archaeological and scientific expeditions, contributed to periodicals and tourist guides, and worked on commission for a number of business. He became best known for his photographs of landscapes and daily life, which were widely distributed as postcards.

        Savrola. A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania.

      New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900 - Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles to spine and within single frame to front board gilt. Housed in a custom blue cloth flat back box. Spine slightly toned, a couple of light marks to contents, endpapers and edges slightly foxed. An excellent copy in bright cloth. First edition in book form, first printing, of Churchill's only novel, his third published book, but the first he undertook to write, and the second he completed. Churchill's melodramatic tale of liberal revolution in an autocratic Mediterranean state was originally serialised in Macmillan's Magazine between May and December 1899. This edition, published in 4,000 copies on 1 February 1900, preceded the UK issue by twelve days, possibly as US law required a foreign-authored book to be manufactured in America to ensure copyright protection. "Whether they deem it a key indication of Churchill's innermost philosophy and political morality or just a yarn, Savrola continues to exert a grip on devotees of the canon" (Langworth).

        Duplex grammatice artis isagoge ab eodem multis nuper locupletata schematibus, .[Paris], Ambrosius Girault (colophon: Paris, printed by Nicolai Savetier for Ambrosius Girault, 25 July 1525). Small 4to (20 x 13.5 cm). With a large woodcut device on title-page, about 25 woodcut "Lombardic" initials plus about 10 repeats, and about 20 line fillers. With the device, all initials and line fillers richly coloured by hand with extensive use of gold, four lines of text on title-page, nearly all paragraph marks and some capitals gilt. Black sheepskin (ca. 1900).

      - Bibl. Belg. P317 (IV, p. 714: 1 copy); Moreau III, 887 (2 copies). Richly and beautifully hand-decorated copy of a very rare edition of a Latin school grammar by Pierre de Ponte (1475-1539). The decoration goes beyond mere colouring and the application of gold. Some of the initials have flowers or figures painted in that do not seem to be present in the printed initial, so that two initials that were probably printed from the same block sometimes appear different in details of form. Born at Bruges, De Ponte was blinded at age three but became a school teacher at Paris. The title-page calls him caecus Brugensis (the blind man of Bruges). His Latin grammar distinguished itself by its methods and scholarly qualities, teaching children by questions and answers in prose, with examples taken from classical authors. The first part treats Latin grammar and the second part Latin syntax. Only two other copies of the present edition are known.Title-page with a faint early owner's inscription. Some restorations and water stains in the title-page and it and the following leaf somewhat browned, but the rest of the leaves are in very good condition. The binding has cracks in the hinges and scuff marks mostly at the corners, but is still good. Very rare edition of a classic Latin school grammar, beautifully coloured and decorated with extensive use of gold.

      William Blackwood and Sons, London & Edinburgh 1900 - First edition, one of 2105 copies. 1 vols. 8vo. INSCRIBED TO CUNNINGHAME GRAHAM. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by Conrad on the front free endpaper: "To R.B. Cunninghame Graham, affectionately from the Author." Conrad's superb novel of the east, inscribed to a cherished and influential friend, R.B. Cunninghame Graham sometime, M.P., rancher, author, aristocrat and socialist, upon whose knowledge of South America Conrad drew while writing Nostromo. "His appearance and South American travels made him the model for Charles Gould in Nostromo, the greatest novel by his friend Joseph Conrad. (He had been prompt to hail the Polish-born novelist, and their friendship extended from 1897 until Conrad's death in 1924. The essay 'Inveni portum' is a moving obituary.) He contributed elements to Etchingham Granger, the central character in The Inheritors (1901), by Conrad and F. M. Hueffer" (ODNB).In 1899, Conrad had initially intended to dedicate the volume of stories containing Heart of Darkness to Cunninghame Graham, but when published, as Youth and Other Stories, that book was dedicated to Conrad's wife Jessie. Conrad later dedicated Typhoon to Cunninghame Graham. "A particularly sustaining friendship was with R. B. Cunninghame Graham, the aristocratic socialist and adventurer" (ibid).

Si on en croit Guaita, Khunrath, médecin et chimiste à Leipzig, disciple de Paracelse, fut un des plus grand initiés des temps modernes. Tout porte à faire croire - et nul de ceux qui l?ont connu n?en doutait - qu?il possédait la Pierre philosophale. Son Amphithéatre de la Sagesse éternelle renferme sur l?art spagyrique des documents qu?on serait fort empêché de trouver ailleurs. La seconde partie de l?ouvrage contient les 12 extraordinaires planches, dont 9 sur double page, que l?on croirait sorties de l?imagination de Callot, reproduites en phototypie. Cette reproduction fut faite par les soins de Papus (pseud.: Dr. GÉRARD ENCAUSSE) et de Marc Haven. (Dorbon-Ainé). Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage. Dorbon-Ainé, Bibliotheca Esoterica: 2365. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
