      [Paris], 15. VII. 1901. - 1 p. 8vo. Mit Umschlag. An Robert Brussel: „[ ]je suis désolé que vous ayez fait ce long chemin sans me trouver. Il y avait bien peu de temps sans doute que j’étais sorti. Vous savez qu’après 5 heures, je suis rarement chez moi.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1901. Second edition, second printing. Hardcover. This is a very clean copy the second and final printing of the Silver Library edition of Churchill's first book. The Story of the Malakand Field Force was based on Churchill's exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. While Churchill had previously applied his pen as a published correspondent, this was his first book-length work and he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." The young Churchill was motivated by a combination of pique and ambition. He was vexed that his Daily Telegraph columns were to be published unsigned. On 25 October 1897 Churchill wrote to his mother: "...I had written them with the design... of bringing my personality before the electorate." Two weeks later, his resolve to write the book firming, Churchill again wrote to his mother of the project: "...It is a great undertaking but if carried out will yield substantial results in every way, financially, politically, and even, though do I care a damn, militarily." Publication of the first edition of 1898 was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. In part because of the errors in the first edition which so vexed Churchill, the publisher also issued a second edition less than a year after the first in January 1899. This Silver Library edition was the first to incorporate the author's corrections in the text, making this an important and highly collectable edition. Unfortunately, the maroon boards proved highly susceptible to fading and wear, the paper easily browned and became brittle, and the binding often cracked. Here is the second and final printing of the Silver Library edition. Of the only 1,000 copies of this printing, just 337 were recorded as sold, so they are quite scarce. This particular copy is the smooth cloth binding variant with gilt spine print and swan & ship endpapers with a corrected date of 1724. Condition is very good indeed. The binding remains tight with only minor wear to extremities and light scuffing. Spine presentation is particularly good, with bright gilt and excellent color. We note only a hint of sunning to the spine, a little wear to the spine ends with a fractional chip at the head, and a barely noticeable tiny puncture of the cloth (with no loss) just below the author's name. The contents remain unusually bright and clean for a Silver Library edition. Even the fore and bottom edges are notably clean, with just light dust soiling to the top edge. The original swan & ship endpapers show no gutter cracks. We note only a trivial hint of spotting confined to the endsheets. All maps are present and pristine, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard. The sole previous ownership marks are the same owner initials and last name in pencil on both the front free endpaper and the following blank endsheet. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.3.b, Woods/ICS A1(ba.2), Langworth p.22.

        [Broadside]: Theatre Royal, Dewsbury: Osmond & Spiers' Company, in the Weirdly Sensational Drama - The BLACK VAMPIRE

      Dewsbury: Dawson & Son, Printers. 1901. Large broadside. Approximately 9.75" x 30" (25cm x 76cm). Printed in blue ink in several type sizes. Several old horizontal folds, one short tear, and a modest chip in the upper right corner affecting no text, very good. Broadside for a play apparently created to capitalize on the vampire craze engendered by Stoker's novel Dracula (published in 1897), which in turn was derived from medieval legends. The broadside gives detailed information on the members of the cast including "The Vampire - The Black Death of Paris - by Itself" and Ritza, The High Priest of Karma, "one of the Scum of Paris," and various heiresses, detectives, and so forth. Also provides the sequence of the acts and scenes. This play premiered in early 1900; this particular performance is advertised here for the week of August 12th, 1901. A very attractive contemporary evocation of the fascination for vampires, which doesn't seem to have waned.A detailed internet search for this play revealed little beyond a few contemporary reviews. Little can be found about the authors outside a reference to a 1900 production of The Yellow Death set in mainland China and before that Spier's five-act drama Father Satan performed at the Britannia Theatre in London in 1896. The Theatre Royal was built in 1865, converted into a movie theater in the 1930s, and torn down in the 1960s. A visually appealing artifact, with the title Black Vampire in especially large display type, of a seemingly lost theatrical drama produced at the height of the Dracula phenomenon. OCLC locates no copies. .

        ESSAYS FROM "THE GUARDIAN."

      London: Macmillan and Co, 1901. Second Printing n. Hardcover. mm (). 4 p.l., 149 pp. Second Printing. EXTREMELY PLEASING CRIMSON CRUSHED MOROCCO, ATTRACTIVELY GILT, BY ZAEHNSDORF (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with multiple gilt rule frame, central panel with azured cornerpieces and central oval medallion, flat spine in three unequal panels, two with oval medallion tools, one with gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Front pastedown with bookplate of Charles Walker Andrews. Spine uniformly sunned to a dark red, light offsetting on free endpapers from turn-in glue, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, the binding unworn and especially lustrous, and the text showing virtually no signs of use. This collection of essays by one of the most influential critics of the 19th century is offered in a binding by one of the period's most accomplished workshops. Pater (1839-94) was a gentle, lifelong bachelor who lived in Oxford with his two sisters and tutored pupils. Although he was an unusually shy and retiring academic, he described his ideal of the aesthetic life and his love for beauty in such passionate and polished prose that his writings developed a significant following that included the Pre-Raphaelites. He was one of the first to recognize the genius of William Morris, and even though he was deeply influenced by the ideas of John Ruskin, Pater produced work that is very individual: a unique blend, often in a single essay, of art criticism, philosophical meditation, and historical fiction. Britannica says that "at the time of his death, Pater exercised a remarkable and a growing influence among that necessarily restricted class of persons who have themselves something of his own love for beauty and the beautiful phrase. . . . The cumulative richness and sonorous depth of his language harmonized intimately with his deep and earnest philosophy of life; and those who can sympathize with a nervous idealism will always find inspiration in his sincere and sustained desire to 'burn with a hard, gem-like flame,' and to live in harmony with the highest." These essays, which first appeared anonymously in the "Guardian" newspaper, focus on English literature, including drama and the poetry of Wordsworth and Browning.

        "Report to the New York Yacht Club of the Committee on Challenge of the Royal Ulster Yacht Club, Columbia vs. Shamrock II. 1900-1901"

      New York: Korff Bros. Company. [1901]. "8vo, pp. 46, [2]; original gray printed wrappers; very short tear in the margin of the front wrapper; the rear wrapper shows remains of a previous mounting (likely in a scrapbook). A rare pamphlet concerning the planning of the 1901 America's Cup Races between Columbia (designed by Nathaniel Herreshoff and winner of the celebrated races in 1899) and Shamrock II (owned by Sir Thomas Lipton). Columbia won the 1901 series 3- 0, and became the first yacht to defend the Cup twice - a feat not equaled again for nearly 70 years. This pamphlet, however, is noteworthy for an entirely different reason, specifically that relating to the Boston copper-mining magnet Thomas W. Lawson (think Butte, Montana), and his desire to compete in the trial races with his own Independence (designed by Bowdoin B. Crowinshield) against Columbia, and another NYYC yacht, Constitution, to see which would defend against Shamrock II. Over half the pamphlet reprints the downward spiraling correspondence (April 23 to June 7, 1901) between the NYYC and Lawson. To be part of the trial races Lawson's yacht would be obliged to ""qualify to fly the flag"" of the NYYC which could be done by 1) selling the Independence to a NYYC member; 2) by Lawson becoming a member of the NYYC himself; or 3) by chartering the Independence to a member of the NYYC. After much back and forth, Lawson presumes to send a charter agreement to the NYYC which for its one- sidedness is summarily rejected. Lawson, as the story goes, was so miffed by the obstinacy of the NYYC that he later produced what at the time was the best history of the Cup Races, The Lawson History of the America's Cup, privately printed in 1902, to prove that he knew more about the history of the event than the New York Yacht Club did. Supposedly, he was careful to see that no NYYC member received a copy. Lawson's unsuccessful bid to be part of the trials in Independence is fully recounted in the book with all the sordid details. Yale, NY Historical Society and Peabody Essex Museum only in OCLC."

Pastor wollte der Darstellung Leopold von Rankes, der 1834-36 sein Werk Die römischen Päpste in den letzten vier Jahrhunderten veröffentlicht hatte, eine Darstellung aus katholischer Sicht entgegenstellen. Er konnte bisher unzugängliches vatikanisches Quellenmaterial verwerten, da er einen umfassenden Zugriff auf die Bestände des vatikanischen Geheimarchivs hatte, welches offiziell erst 1883 durch Erlass von Leo XIII. vollständig geöffnet wurde. Pastors Papstgeschichte zeichnet sich durch ihre Detailfülle aus und wird daher noch heute zitiert.

        COMUS, A MASK

      Essex House Press, London 1901 - 195 x 125 mm. mm (7 3/4 x 5"). 47, [1] pp. No. 14 OF 150 COPIES ON VELLUM. Original stiff vellum over thin boards, front cover with embossed rose design. Rubricated by Florence Kingsford throughout, with one two-line and one very large 10-line gilt initial, illustrated colophon and woodcut frontispiece by Reginald Savage, both hand colored. Colophon corrected (apparently by the publisher) to identify the frontispiece artist ("Reginald Savage" painted in red over an earlier attribution). Tomkinson, p. 73; Ransom, p. 267; Franklin, p. 199. Vellum pastedowns lifting at edges, otherwise in especially fine condition, the binding extraordinarily clean, and the text essentially faultless. This is a very fine copy of the eighth in the Essex House "Great Poems in the English Language" series, begun with Shelley's "Adonais" and Keats' "The Eve of St Agnes," both issued in 1900, and closing with Browning's "Flight of the Duchess" in 1905. Well before Milton had come to the attention of the literary world, the musician Henry Lawes had asked him to write the present work, which in its first three printed versions was called "A Masque, presented at Ludlow Castle, 1634, before the Earl of Bridgewater, Lord President of Wales." The work is a pastoral entertainment, written for the occasion of Bridgewater's assuming of the presidential office. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Elston Press 1901, 1903, New Rochelle, NY - mm (). [i], lxix, [ii] pp.; 76 pp., [2] leaves; 86 pp., [2] leaves. Three separately published works. Chaucer edited by Walter W. Skeat. Chaucer ONE OF 200 COPIES; Shelley ONE OF 185 COPIES; Twine ONE OF 170 COPIES. Publisher's linen-backed blue paper boards, printed spine label, ALL THREE WORKS ENTIRELY UNOPENED. Printed in black and red. Ransom, pp. 260-61. Light soiling to boards, spines of the two larger volumes a little browned and with discoloration or chips to paper labels ("Shelley" torn off the label for the "Cenci"), but unsurprisingly fine internally, the texts entirely unread and consequently completely clean and fresh. The works here include: (1) the Medieval verse drama "Tale of Gamelyn," usually attributed to Chaucer (according to the "Oxford Companion," it appears in several manuscripts of the "Canterbury Tales" as part of the unfinished "Cook's Tale"); (2) Shelley's Romantic verse tragedy "The Cenci," based on a scandalous incident of incest and murder in 1599 Rome, after which Beatrice Cenci was tried and executed for killing her abusive father; and (3) a 16th century novel retelling the "painful adventures" of Prince Apollonius of Tyre, based on the classical tale in John Gower's "Confessio Amantis" and considered one of the sources for Shakespeare's "Pericles." The text for the last is from the 1607 edition printed by Valentine Simmes, who also published nine Shakespeare quartos. Chaucer ONE OF 200 COPIES; Shelley ONE OF 185 COPIES; Twine ONE OF 170 COPIES.

        Privates Photographien-Album mit 90 Original-Photographien von Zuave (Zouave) - Einheiten in wohl in Nordafrika.

      um 1901 - ca. 1909.. 90 Original-Albuminabzüge auf 10 Kartontafeln jeweils am oberen Rand verso fest montiert.. Gr. 8° quer (Format ca. 24x32,5 cm), Formate der Photographien ca. 6,5x9 cm (bzw. 9x6,5 cm) und 9x13,5 cm (bzw. 13,5x9 cm). Wohl etwas späterer, broschierter Pappeinband mit Kordelbindung.. Der Broschureinband etwas fleckig und einige Male eingerissen. - Zuaven nannten sich die Angehörigen historischer Infanterieeinheiten. Der Name geht auf den kabylischen Stamm der Zuauas im Distrikt Zuaua (Zuavia) in der algerischen Provinz Constantine zurück, die bereits zu Zeiten des Osmanischen Reiches Söldnertruppen stellten, die für ihre Tapferkeit berühmt waren. Zu Beginn der Eroberung Algeriens stellte Frankreich am 1. Oktober 1830 ein Corps des Zouaves auf, das unter dem Befehl des Generals Clauzel stand. Der Begriff Zuave wurde bald allgemein für in Nordafrika rekrutierte Söldner gebraucht. Die Zuaven trugen auffällige, an türkisch-orientalische Trachten angelehnte Uniformen. Im Krimkrieg zeichneten sich Zuavenregimenter mehrfach aus (unter anderem bei den Schlachten von Alma, Inkerman und Malakoff) und begründeten den legendären Ruf dieser Einheiten.Dies veranlasste zeitweise auch andere Länder, Zuaveneinheiten aufzustellen, die allerdings nicht aus Nordafrikanern bestanden, sondern lediglich die bunten Trachten der französischen Vorbilder übernahmen. So stellten die Unionsstaaten wie auch die Konföderierten im Amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg verschiedene Zuavenregimenter auf; auch in Brasilien, den Päpstlichen Staaten und der Türkei gab es entsprechende Truppen. Die Zuaven entwickelten sich gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts zu einer regulären Infanterietruppe der französischen Armee mit Elitecharakter. Zu den Zuaven-Regimentern wurde ein Großteil der wehrpflichtigen europäischen Einwohner Französisch-Nordafrikas eingezogen, aber auch Franzosen aus dem Mutterland. Infolge der algerischen Unabhängigkeit löste man die letzten Zuaven-Einheiten 1963 auf. - Unsere Bilder zeigen, mit Ausnahme einiger weniger ziviler Personen und zwei kleinen Photos arabischer Kämpfern, ausschließlich Zuave-Soldaten. Teils im Camp, teils auf Gruppenphotos etc. - Einige Photos etwas stärker ausgeblichen, einige mit Kratzsspuren, wohl von den Glasbildern stammend und beim Entwickeln auf das Photo übertragen, vereinzelte Randläsuren, insg. aber in guter, kontrastreicher Wiedergabe. Ein Gruppenphoto zeigt 8 Soldaten die jeweils eine Trinkschale halten, uf dem Boden steht ein Schild mit dem Aufdruck: "Souvenir du 2e Zouave", darüber "Vive la classe 1901", einige wenige Bilder mit Beschriftungen auf den Rückseiten, bei denen u.a. auch die 5e Compagnie von 1908 erwähnt wird. Es könnte sich also um Erinnerungsphotos verschiedener Ausbildungseinheiten handeln. - Les zouaves sont des unites francaises d'infanterie legere appartenant a l'Armee d'Afrique. Souvent associes a l'image des batailles du Second Empire et connus pour leur uniforme singulier, ces unites ont existe de 1830 a 1962.

It makes me feel pretty recent, as to American origin". His three-act Meisterschaft (1888) was described as a 'Patent Universally-Applicable Automatically-Adjustable Language Drama. adjustable to any tongue, and performable in any tongue'.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1901. Second edition, second printing. Hardcover. This is a very clean copy the second and final printing of the Silver Library edition of Churchill's first book. The Story of the Malakand Field Force was based on Churchill's exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. While Churchill had previously applied his pen as a published correspondent, this was his first book-length work and he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." The young Churchill was motivated by a combination of pique and ambition. He was vexed that his Daily Telegraph columns were to be published unsigned. On 25 October 1897 Churchill wrote to his mother: "...I had written them with the design... of bringing my personality before the electorate." Two weeks later, his resolve to write the book firming, Churchill again wrote to his mother of the project: "...It is a great undertaking but if carried out will yield substantial results in every way, financially, politically, and even, though do I care a damn, militarily." Publication of the first edition of 1898 was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. In part because of the errors in the first edition which so vexed Churchill, the publisher also issued a second edition less than a year after the first in January 1899. This Silver Library edition was the first to incorporate the author's corrections in the text, making this an important and highly collectable edition. Unfortunately, the maroon boards proved highly susceptible to fading and wear, the paper easily browned and became brittle, and the binding often cracked. Here is the second and final printing of the Silver Library edition. Of the only 1,000 copies of this printing, just 337 were recorded as sold, so they are quite scarce. This particular copy is the smooth cloth binding variant with gilt spine print and swan & ship endpapers with a corrected date of 1724. Condition is very good indeed. The binding remains tight with only minor wear to extremities and light scuffing. Spine presentation is particularly good, with bright gilt and excellent color. We note only a hint of sunning to the spine, a little wear to the spine ends with a fractional chip at the head, and a barely noticeable tiny puncture of the cloth (with no loss) just below the author's name. The contents remain unusually bright and clean for a Silver Library edition. Even the fore and bottom edges are notably clean, with just light dust soiling to the top edge. The original swan & ship endpapers show no gutter cracks. We note only a trivial hint of spotting confined to the endsheets. All maps are present and pristine, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard. The sole previous ownership marks are the same owner initials and last name in pencil on both the front free endpaper and the following blank endsheet.

        Messaline.

      Paris, Revue blanche, 1901. - In-12, 232-(3) pages. Demi-maroquin vert à coins, dos à nerfs, couverture conservée, tête dorée (Faure). Dos passé, papier un peu roux. Edition originale. Exemplaire truffé de deux pages autographes de Jarry, à l'encre avec des corrections au crayon à papier, correspondant aux pages 167 à 169 de l'ouvrage. "Avec Messaline - Roman de l'ancienne Rome (1901) Jarry se tourne vers le 'roman péplum'. Pour ses contemporains, c'est une véritable rupture qui s'opère ici avec ses textes antérieurs, trop hermétiques, 'privés' et qui connurent bien peu de lecteurs - on pense à l'échec commercial de Les jours et les nuits ou à l'Amour absolu par exemple. Rachilde, qui la première, recense ce roman dans le Mercure de France le qualifie d''&#156;uvre qui marque une évolution nouvelle, peut-être définitive révolution dans les primitives obscurités de son style'." (Riewert Ehrich, "Messaline d'Alfred Jarry - tentative de 'best-seller' ou livre hermétique ?" in l'Etoile-asbinthe, Société des amis d'Alfred Jarry, n° 61-62, 1994).
