        The International Socialist Review: A Monthly Journal of International Socialist Thought : Volumes I - IX [ Complete Run from July, 1900 - June, 1909 ]

      Charles H. Kerr Co., Chicago 1901 - A very good set of publisher-bound complete run of Volumes I through IX (i.e., July, 1900 through June, 1909), lacking jackets, no doubt as issued. Each volume bound separately, and each includes th full run of issues in that volume, beginning in July of one year, and ending with the June issue of the following year. Thus, volume I runs from July, 1900 through June, 1901. The texts of all nine volumes are wholly unmarked, pristine, with no ownership marks, no writing, no highlighting. Since they were bound by the publisher, no covers are included for any of the issues, but each volume has a full contents listing with page numbers cited. The bindings are very good for Volumes I, III, VI, VII, VIII, and IX: no splitting in the gutters, no wobble to the boards, red-cloth with gilt lettering still quite bright and fresh in appearance, no noticeable age-toning to the pages. Issues with the three remaining volumes are as follows: Volume II: Damp-stain to front board, with splitting of front endpaper in the gutter, revealing the webbing, which remains intact, but with some wobble to the board. Volume IV: Partial splitting of front endpaper in the gutter, with very slight wobble to front board, and front free endpaper loose and laid in. Volume V: Front endpaper split in the gutter, revealing the webbing, which remains intact, and with some wobble to the front board. All-in-all a superb set of the first full nine years. [Please note: Due to the size and weight of the volumes extra shipping may be required depending on the destination and speed of delivery requested. International buyers may especially wish to inquire before ordering. Quotations gladly provided.] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Denslow's Mother Goose: Being the Old Familiar Rhymes and Jingles of Mother Goose

      McClure Phillips & Company, New York, New York 1901 - First Edition in the original pictorial boards, professionally restored by a book conservator. This is the 1st edition, 1st printing with Humpty Dumpty on the verso of the dedication leaf, with the copyright date of 1901 as well as the matching date on the title page date. Edited and illustrated by Denslow. His later illustrations, in a similar style, for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, earned him wide acclaim from readers and critics, alike, earning him a hallowed place in the history of 20th century book illustration. In this volume, each left side page has the text of nursery rhyme hand lettered by Fred W. Goudy. Facing each rhyme, on the right side, is a Denslow color plate in bright colors, printed on a green background. The text pages are illustrated in color. With pictorial end papers. The cover boards and end papers have been restored by a book binder, including a new green paper spine, new spine label using the typeface and text from the front cover, and some minor repair to the edges of the end papers.

Remnants of tape remain on the inch nearest the spine, on the front and back covers. This was amateurishly used to hold the book together prior to our professional repair. The interior pages are clean and unmarked, with slight age toning along margins, that does not impinge on text or illustrations. Tiny inked inscriiption on verso of front free end paper: "To Marian, from Shoe, Jany. 1, 1906" with 1/2 inch square label of prior owner at top of front paste down. Binding is square and solid.

        The Violet Fairy Book

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1901. With Numerous Illustrations by H. J. Ford. Octavo. Original purple cloth, titles and elaborate pictorial designs to spine and upper board gilt, black coated endpapers, all edges gilt. Colour frontispiece and 7 plates, 25 full-page engraved plates, illustrations within the text. Contemporary ownership inscription. Slight rubbing to ends and corners, a few minor marks to rear board and very slight dulling to the gilt, occasional minor marks internally, but still a smart and vividly coloured copy, generally in very good condition indeed. First edition, first impression, of the seventh title in the Fairy Book series, containing in its preface Andrew Lang's memorable apology for fairy tales: "These stories are as old as anything that men have invented... Who were the first authors of them nobody knows - probably the first men and women. Eve may have told these tales to amuse Cain and Abel. As people grew more civilised and had kings and queens, princes and princesses, these exalted persons generally were chosen as heroes and heroines. But originally the characters were just 'a man', and 'a woman,' and 'a boy,' and 'a girl,' with crowds of beasts, birds, and fishes, all behaving like human beings. When the nobles and other people became rich and educated, they forgot the old stories, but the country people did not, and handed them down, with changes at pleasure, from generation to generation. Then learned men collected and printed the country people's stories, and these we have translated, to amuse children. Their tastes remain like the tastes of their naked ancestors, thousands of years ago, and they seem to like fairy tales better than history, poetry, geography, or arithmetic, just as grown-up people like novels better than anything else.

        A Minor Poet, and other Verse

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, Cameo Series. 1901. First. Second edition (following the 1884 first edition). Parchment boards, spine lettered in gilt. Frontispiece. Vellum leaves. Some light foxing to edges of boards, else a nice copy. Copy number 1 of thirty copies on vellum, specially bound, and numbered and signed by the publisher, whose copy this was. 'This volume is a reprint of that issued in 1884, with the addition of a sonnet and a translation, from a volume published in Cambridge in 1881, and now out of print.' Levy had committed suicide on September 10th 1889. Loosely inserted are three newspaper cuttings: an obituary of Levy published in the Daily News on Sept 14; a poem, 'In Memoriam Amy Levy', by Ida J. Lemon, published in the British Weekly on Sept 27th; and 'verses of an antique Spanish ballad' translated by Vernon Blackburn to serve the same purpose and published in the Pall Mall Gazette on the 26th.Amy Levy was a remarkably precocious feminist. One of her childhood drawings shows a woman standing on a soap box with a banner reading: 'Women's Suffrage! Man is a Cruel Oppressor!' Reviewing Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Aurora Leigh for a children's magazine at the age of thirteen, she criticized the author for including 'too many learned allusions' but suggested that 'it is only natural that she should wish to display what public opinion denies her sex -- a classical education.' Four years later, she contributed an article, 'Jewish Women and Women's Rights to the Jewish Chronicle, and became the second Jewish woman to go to Cambridge. Amongst her later friends were Eleanor Marx, Olive Schreiner, and Vernon Lee, to whom she was particularly drawn. Through her friendship with Lee, she was able to join a circle of female friends amongst whom she could express her sapphic orientation with greater openness. with Lee, she was able to join a circle of female friends amongst whom she could express her sapphic orientation with greater openness.Much of Levy's symbolist-inflected verse tends towards melancholy, as did its author. 'She was indeed frequently gay and animated,' wrote Richard Garnett in the DNB, 'but her cheerfulness was but a passing mood that merely gilded her habitual melancholy, without diminishing it by a particle, while sadness grew upon her steadily, in spite of flattering success and the sympathy of affectionate friends.' Aside from the habit of despair, she suffered increasingly from deafness and feared that, like her brother, she might go mad. The controversy following publication of her second novel, Reuben Sachs, and above all a critical reference to it in the Jewish Chronicle, may have exacerbated Levy's final depression. The paper mentioned it in its review of a pseudonymous novel, published by Fisher Unwin, entitled Isaac Eller's Money: 'Isaac Eller's Money ... is a clever performance in the style of 'Reuben Sachs', but less intentionally offensive... The clever ill-natured fiction of Jewish life has now reached a high level of development.' On September 10th 1889, two months short of her 28th birthday, Levy committed suicide. Her death certificate recorded the cause of death as 'asphyxia from the inhalation of Carbonic Oxide Gas from the burning of charcoal.' Writing in the Boston Herald earlier that year, Louise Chandler Moulton recalled that she had first heard of Amy Levy in the autumn of 1887. 'Oscar Wilde had assumed editorship of 'The Woman's World,' and was telling me his plans for the new number, which was to be issued in December of '87. 'The most wonderful thing in the number,' he said, 'will be a story, one page long, by Amy Levy ... a mere girl, but a girl of genius.'' In his late obituary of her, Wilde wrote: 'Miss Levy's novels The Romance of a Shop and Reuben Sachs were both published last year. The first is a bright and clever story, full of sparkling touches; the second is a novel that probably no other writer could have produced. Its directness, its uncompromising truths, its depth of feeling, and above all, its absence of any single superfluous word make it, in some sort, a classic.... To write thus at six-and-twenty is given to very few.' Amy Levy fell off the literary map for almost a century.On September 10th 1889, two months short of her 28th birthday, Levy committed suicide. Her death certificate recorded the cause of death as '"A short while since, Literary London was deeply moved by the suicide of the young Jewish novelist and verse writer, Miss Amy Levy. Many will take up with sad interest the posthumous volume, A London Plane-Tree, now in the press", wrote Yeats, in an article for the Boston Pilot."'... I saw her no long while before her death. She was talkative, good-looking in a way and full of the restlessness of the unhappy. Had she cared to live, a future of some note awaited her." Rare. .

        Some extracts of the personal diary of Mrs. R.J. Mendenhall. Also press notices, and some early and later correspondence to her, by her, etc

      n.p., n.d.: [likely Minneapolis. 1901.]. Only edition, 8vo, pp. 542; 2 portraits, vignette title-p.; fine copy in orig. black cloth, gilt-lettered spine. Abby Mendenhall was one of the earliest women settlers in Minneapolis, in 1858 a newly opened remote frontier outpost west of the Mississippi. She was one of the founding members of the Sisterhood of Bethany, whose objects were "the promotion of moral purity, helping the tempted, saving the fallen, and providing a home for fallen women" -- at that time a work almost unprecedented and extremely unpopular. She was one of four women to found Bethany Home for unwed mothers; she was its secretary the first year, and after that, the treasurer, from 1877 until her death, a period of 23 years. She was also one of the founding members of the Minneapolis Friends Meeting. She was the wife of Richard Junius Mendenhall, the Minneapolis banker and florist. Laid in is a cabinet photograph of her.

In Originalpassepartout fest montiert und dort vom Künstler bezeichnet "[Peter Becker 1901]" sowie betitelt.. Der Landschaftsmaler Peter Becker studierte in Frankfurt am Städelschen Kunstinstitut bei F.A. Hessemer (1800-1860), dann bei J. Becker (1810-1872). Anschließen hatte er zeitweise ein Atelier im Deutschordenshaus in Sachsenhausen, wohin sich der Nazarener P. Veit (1793-1877) nach Aufgabe des Direktorats des Städelschen Kunstinstitutes 1843 und ein Teil seiner Anhänger zurückgezogen hatten. Einen gewissen Einfluß hatte die spätromantische Malauffassung von E. von Steinle (1810-1886), mit dem er u.a. die Entwürfe für die Glasfenster des Frankfurter Doms ausführte. 1899 wurde der Künstler zum Professor ernannt. Beckers bevorzugte Technik waren aquarellierte Kohlezeichnungen und Zeichnungen, die während zahlreicher Ausflüge direkt vor der Natur entstanden; Arbeiten in Öl sind seltener. Die Graphische Sammlung des Städelschen Kunstinstitutes Frankfurt am Main besitzt eine große Anzahl seiner Werke, wie auch das dortige Historische Museum.

Especially notable was his method of producing gastric and pancreatic fistulae for the purpose of his experiments."

        (PICASSO). LE FROU FROU 31 Août 1901 ? Nº 46 / 14 Septembre 1901 Nº 48

      Posiblemente sean los dos primeros dibujos de Picasso publicados. Dos hojas con dibujos de Picasso, en ambos casos firmados: Ruiz. Para ganarse la vida, como otros muchos artistas extranjeros que buscaban fama en la capital francesa, el pintormalagueño tuvo que recurrir al trabajo de ilustrador para revistas como ?Le Frou-Frou?. En aquellos dibujos de 1901 con temática cabaretera, recogidos en la publicación, queda reflejada la influencia de Toulouse-Lautrec. 285 x 205, un volumen con varios números de esta revista satírica-galante, encuadernación muy sencilla en tela y cartoné.

With a portrait frontispiece, 77 photos, and 2 maps (one large and outlined in color in a rear pocket). 8vo, original blue cloth gilt lettered and pictorially decorated on the spine and upper cover. xvi, 356. A fine and bright copy with only very light mellowing to the cloth and minor typical foxing to the pastedown and free-fly. VERY SCARCE. The Sherbro was one of the great revenue-producing regions of Britain's Sierra Leone colony. It was the port of entry for ocean-going steamers and the point of departure for the products of the rich hinterland--including palm oil, koala nuts, rubber, and various fruits and cultivated crops. The author, who was Commissioner at Sherbro, discusses these indigenous products as well as secret societies, ordeals and punishments, various chiefs and treaties, and the Mendi rising of 1898. A scarce title.

In Witness Whereof...? Florence D. White, hired as a reporter by Pulitzer when he was 16, was General Manager of Pulitzer?s ?New York World.?Joseph Pulitzer had founded the ?St. Louis Post-Dispatch? in 1878 and continued to own and publish it until his death. His eyes began to fail in the 1880s and by the end of the decade, at age 42, Joseph Pulitzer was virtually blind. Under his authorization, letters and documents requiring his signature were mostly signed by his secretaries. However, he personally signed this proxy whose validity would have been challenged had a secretary signed his name. Autograph material authentically signed by Joseph Pulitzer has rarely appeared on the market. In fact, before this item became available, only one Joseph Pulitzer signed document or letter had appeared at a major public auction in at least the last 25 years."
