        THREE ELSTON PRESS BOOKS, SOLD AS A GROUP: CHAUCER, GEOFFREY. THE TALE OF GAMELYN. [and] SHELLEY, PERCY BYSSHE. THE CENCI. [and] TWINE, LAURENCE. THE PATTERNE OF PAINEFULL ADVENTURES

      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.

To Miss Helen Ingleby "& the other friends", of Heacham Hall, Norfolk, describing how his family and friends would play the Meisterschaft to audiences of hundred friends (".not ten of whom knew the German tongue, but they always had an enjoyable time just the same, for we played it with tremendous spirit. I think I appeared in only one scene. it was between papa & the German boarding-house Frau, & these parts were done in English, & were not written down, but made up as we went along &#150; as a convenience for us incapables, as I was not able to memorize a part.").

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. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.3.b, Woods/ICS A1(ba.2), Langworth p.22.

        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'."

        Autograph musical quotation boldly signed in full

      1 page (ca. 59 x 90 mm.). Dated Birmingham, Jan. 21/02. In pencil on dark ivory card with edges gilt. The first measure of the Violin I part from Elgar's Cockaigne (In London Town) Concert-Overture, Op. 40. Notated in treble clef on one hand-drawn staff. In 4/4 time. With autograph titling ("Cockaigne"). Very slightly worn; light abrasion to blank verso. Together with: A vintage bust-length postcard photograph of Elgar with ample mustache, in a tweed suit. Published by Rotary Photographic Series. Ca. 136 x 86 mm. Corners slightly worn and silvered; verso slightly browned and foxed, with some remnants of former mount to margins. . The first performance of Cockaigne took place in the Queen's Hall in London at a Royal Philharmonic Society Concert on June 20, 1901, conducted by Elgar. Cockaigne – which Elgar described as "cheerful and Londony, stout and steaky" – was an immediate success and became one of Elgar's most popular works. Letter from Elgar to A.J. Jaeger, dated November 4, 1900. "[Elgar's] abundant invention, largeness of vision, and strength and singularity of musical character place him high among European Romantic artists and at the peak of British music of his time. He drew inspiration from the culture and landscape of his own country, resourcefulness from the study of his continental colleagues; and contributed to all the major forms except opera, creating a significant body of symphonic literature, the finest oratorio by an Englishman, and in his popular music a style of direct national appeal."

        In His Own Image

      London and New York: John Lane: The Bodley Head, , 1901. Octavo. Original purple cloth boards, titles to spine and front board in white, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Housed in a purple quarter morocco solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. Rubbing to white lettering on spine with most lacking, faint cloth discolouration along top edges, mild bumping to corners and ends of spine, but a most superior copy of a delicate publication in the profoundly rare dust jacket with just the mildest wear. First edition, first printing, first issue binding. The sheets were printed in the US, with 1,500 sets imported to the UK, where the book was published on 5 March 1901. It was released in the US one month later, on 6 April 1901. Copies issued in the US were bound in purple cloth, and in the UK in green, grey, red, or dark blue cloth. The question of determining which colour of cloth has priority is much debated; however, it is widely accepted that the earliest copies are those bound in purple cloth, and Woolf posits that the first copies issued in the UK were imported from the US, having been bound in purple cloth.

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire Année complète 1901 EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Bureaux de la Revue, 1901. Fine. Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1901, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding Edition Editor at bradel half percaline dark green, smooth back, as part of black morocco, small gilded iron and double gold mesh queue.Douze the January to December 1901. Covers conservées.Chaque number is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Paul Fort, André Gide ("Emmanuel Signoret", "The Limits of Art"), Francis Jammes, etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a review Monthly belonging to the first wave of small symbolist journals. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular collaborators, 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), Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. L'Ermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time like 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] that deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his symbolist spirit, employees are more interested in poetry than fiction. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, believes that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddling the end of the century aesthetics 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 1901. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Paul Fort, André Gide ("Emmanuel Signoret", "Les limites de l'art"), 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.

        Der Wille zur Macht (The Will to Power)

      C. G. Naumann, Leipzig 1901 - First Edition of the "483 Notes" Will To PowerDer Wille zur Macht (The Will to Power) In Volume XV of Nietzsche's Werke, GrossoktavausgabeC. G. Naumann, Leipzig, 1901. Opp TP + TP + [V]-XXII + 3 half titles + [5]-541 + 5 leaves = ads, Octavo. Schaberg Nachlass-1. Nietzsche's so-called "master work," this first edition of The Will to Power contains 483 notes altogether. It is, however, a book Nietzsche never wrote. His sister, Elisabeth Foerster-Nietzsche created it from his notebooks using a general sketch for such a work also found there in fulfillment of a promised volume of that name. In fact, Nietzsche had rejected the project long before his death; though some of the notes would undoubtedly have contributed to another work on a grand scale possibly to be titled The Revaluation of Values. The present title was expanded to 1,067 entries for the 1906 edition. Still, The Will to Power has garnered a tremendous amount of attention from scholars (most especially, Heidegger, whose work entitled Nietzsche treats the Nachlass almost exclusively) and from laymen alike. CONDITION: Very good+ to near fine. Bound in the standard Naumann half-leather binding with marbled boards. Still retaining the clean and bright pages, with all the marbling to page edges also bright. Scarce. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
