        Diccionario de la Lengua Tarasca o de Michoacán

      Tipografia de la Oficina Impresora de Estampillas, Mexico City 1901 - 518 pages with facsimiles and wood cuts. Small folio. (13" x 9 1/4") bound in three quarter leather with marbled boards with gilt lettering to spine. Compiled and re-impression under the direction of Antonio Penafiel. Inscribed by Penafiel. First published in 1559. Second edition limited to 200 copies of which this is number 5. When the Franciscans arrived in Michoacán in 1525, they found a new challenge, the language of the natives of the region, whom they came to call Tarascans was different from other native languages of New Spain. Maturino Gilberti, a Franciscan friar whose skills in the Tarascan language exceeded those of their peers. When his works were printed it was the first attempt of a systematic analysis of the language, and his vocabulary is still the best known Tarascan dictionary. Prior to his arrival in the new world, very little is know, it is thought that he may have been born in 1498. but it could have been in 1507 or 8 in the city of Poitiers, France. He studied arts and theology at the University of Toulouse and came to New Spain in 1531, shortly after his ordination. Fray Alonso de la Rea, Michoacán’s Franciscan chronicler of the seventeenth century, says Gilberti went directly to Michoacán. He quickly learned the language and was held in high admiration by the natives. It seems that his first publication was a Christian doctrine that came out in 1553. In 1556 we find Fray Gilberti in Tzintzuntzan, were Quiroga established the episcopal see and where indigenous Tzintzuntzans and other subjected Indians were forced in building the his cathedral. Gilberti stood against Bishop Quiroga and the enslavement of the indigenous to build and pay for the cathedral. In the summer of 1558 Gilberti proposed several books to be printed in Mexico. He Had obtained approval for them by James Daciano, guardian (superior of the convent)of the Franciscans in Tzintzuntzan, in July. He must have acted quickly, because on August 10 received letters from Archbishop Alonso, and the Franciscan provincial authorizing the publication of his books. Within the same twelve month period the Viceroy Luis de Velasco gave his written approval. In accordance with such approvals he would published four books in Mexico during the course of less than one year. All were published at the press of Juan Pablo. It seems that Gilberti had thought that his grammar (Arte) and dictionary (vocabulary) were two parts of the same work. This is probably the reason why the dictionary does not have the usual written approvals, because the dictionary is mentioned in the letters to the principle of grammar. Gilberti died in Tzintzuntzan 1585. Condition: Inscribed on half title, spine spine, hinges, edges and corners rubbed, corners bumped. Internally very good in good binding.

        THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON

      Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrill Company,. [1901]. Octavo, pp. [1-10] 1-312, twelve inserted plates with illustrations by E. Hering,. title page printed in black and red, original pictorial navy blue cloth, front panel stamped in gold and blind, spine panel stamped in gold.. Early owner's name and date ("Xmas, 1908") in ink on front free. endpaper, a truly fine copy with brilliant cover stamping in the. original first state pictorial dust jacket (printed in dark blue on. buff paper stock) with "Bowen / Merrill" imprint at base of spine. panel. The dust jacket has shallow chips from crown and tail of spine. panel (no lettering affected), some shelf wear at corner tips, and a. scrape to the surface of the front panel along the lower edge which. affects "ELL" of "WELLS" and extends up slightly into the lower blue. background of the illustration. Still an attractive example of a rare. jacket. Although book and jacket are mixed states, they have not been. married (there is faint ghosting from the flap copy of this jacket on. the fore-edges of the free endpapers); we surmise the book was. distributed with this jacket by the publisher who changed their name. from Bowen-Merrill to Bobbs-Merrill in January 1903, some 15 months. after the book was published in late September or early October 1901. (it was listed Publisher's Weekly 5 October 1901). The size of the. edition is not known, but the book was apparently not a big success. and unsold sheets of the first printing were later sold to Grosset &. Dunlap. This is the second known copy of this edition in the original. jacket. (#9451). First edition, second state binding with "Bobbs / Merrill" at base of spine panel. Preceded the British edition by approximately one month. The two editions have minor textual differences. "... a gripping adventure story as well as a historic milestone in modern science fiction." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature II, pp. 782-86. "The last and most complex [of Wells's early scientific romances] is THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON. The two first men, Bedford and Cavor are well-contrasted, the civilization of the Selenites is excellent both as horror and satire; and the novel abounds with wonderful passages of unforced description at which Wells is unrivaled ... This lovely book also contains much of Wells's delightful humor; it has kept the joints of his discourse oiled to this day. After THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON, Wells's science fiction novels are never quite the same." - Bleiler (ed), Science Fiction Writers, p. 28. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-166; (1981) 1-175; (1987) 1-98; (1995) 1-98; and (2004) II- 1225. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 2335. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 795.

        [Photo Album]: Travels to Northern Africa, India, Turkey, Persia, Russia (Azerbaijan), Tunis, Greece, and Western Europe

      Oblong quarto. Red half calf and cloth with "Photographs" in gilt on the front board. Erosion of the calf, which is a bit powdery, else sound and very good. A collection of 356 good quality photographs of turn-of-the-century foreign travels. The majority are 3" x 2.25" silver gelatin prints, with a substantial number of prints that are a bit larger, including a few cyanotypes. Condition of the photographs is mostly near fine. Most have been captioned, either in pencil beneath the mount, or on the negative. Most bear the date 1901, a few 1902. The unidentified photographer was an exhaustive shutterbug, and it seems that little that he observed went undocumented. Many of the images are of architecture, but some are of native peoples as well. There are generous selections from several countries including India (Bombay, Agra, Delhi); Egypt (Karnak and other parts of Luxor, Cairo, Thebes); Russia (the Azerbaijan region: wagons, caravans, and Cossacks); Persia (Tehran, soldiers, Persians, more caravans). The Western European shots are primarily of architecture. A nice selection of images, with more than the usual percentage (probably about two-thirds) from "exotic" locales. One interesting element is that mounted in the rear of the album are photographs (contemporaneous with the others) that have been printed from damaged negatives. .

        THE INHERITORS

      1901. An Extravagant Story. London: William Heinemann, 1901. 32 pp undated ads. Original yellow cloth decorated in black. First English Edition (issued a month after the American one), consisting of 1,500 copies in two states and three bindings. This was Conrad's only science fiction title, involving people from The Fourth Dimension -- though the work is largely Hueffer's.~The "I" narrator is Etchingham Granger, a writer of impeccable pedigree whose fortunes are none too good and who is forced to take on several disagreeable commercial assignments. Early on, he meets an extremely attractive young lady who is a "Fourth Dimensionist." This tribe of "new people" -- there is a dystopian pattern here -- lacks feelings and normal or human responses. They, and she, are dedicated to becoming the inheritors of the earth because of their superiority in intellect, control and deception. In particular, they plan to undermine public confidence in its institutions, which turns out to be fairly easy given the nature of the men who govern. The political satire lies here: everyone has a price and everyone is self-serving regardless of the seriousness of the isues. There is no "public policy" among public men. [Karl]~ This copy does have the dedication leaf ("To Borys & Christina"): according to Cagle "it would appear that the [dedication] leaf was inserted into only a few copies"; one would presume that these were likely the last copies to be bound up, and yet this copy is in the primary binding (with the pictorial cover panel and with "W H" bracketing the windmill on the spine; there were two subsequent bindings). It is a bright, close-to-fine copy (scarcely any wear at all, with much less cover soil than is usually the case with this bright yellow cloth). Cagle A6a.3. Housed in a (slightly tired) morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

        Department of the Interior Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes, Map of Choctaw Nation

      U.S. Government of Choctaw Nation, 1901. OUTSTANDING COLOR MAP OF CHOCTAW NATION IN INDIAN TERRITORY Lithograph Sheet size: approx. 38 4/5" x 34 2/5" This is an incredibly detailed and vividly colored terrain map produced by the U.S. government of Choctaw Nation in Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma). The Choctaw Indians are a Muskogee-speaking people, and are the historical inhabitants of central Mississippi. During the eighteenth century, the Choctaws began coming into regular contact with Europeans. While the Choctaws got along peaceably with the French, they instantly clashed with the British who attempted to destroy the Choctaw's traditional mode of politics. Indeed, after expelling the French from the lower Mississippi Valley in 1763, the British took complete control of Choctaw trade, gradually reducing the Choctaw nation into a total state of dependency. .

        Traité des échecs et recueil des parties jouées au tournoi international de 1900

      Paris: Societe Anonyme de Publications Periodiques P Mouillot, 1901 460 pages with frontispiece and index. Octavo (8 1/4" x 5 1/4") bound in half blue cloth with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine and marbled boards. (Bibliotheca van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5256) First edition.Like the historic London competition nearly half a century earlier (1851, the third Paris international tournament was conducted in the exciting splendor of the world's fair. A total of 17 players from Germany, Hungary, Mexico, Austria, the Untied States, England, Russian and France competed for 12,800 in prize money and four valuable Servres fases donated by the French Government. The Grande Cercle club served the visiting masters free coffee, tea and lemonade during the competition. The participants were permitted to take all their meals in the club, which was known for its superior cuisine. The Paris organizing committee, following the example of the London 1883 and New York 1889 tournaments, required that all drawn games be replayed. Only the result of the second game would count. In another attempt to encourage fighting chess, the committee announced that ties at the end of the tournament would be broken by number og games won. Schlechter fell victim to this tie-breaking system: he posted a +9 -5 =2 score to finish even with Marco and Mieses (both +10 -6 =0) in seventh-ninth places but went without a prize, since he had won fewer games. The London-domiciled Lasker (+14 -1 =1)began in impressive fashion with successive victories against Schlechter, Didier, Burn and Mieses. He then suffered his only defeat, this at the hands of the exciting 23 year old American rookie, Marsha. The Paris victory was Lasker's fourth in international competition and clearly established him as the world's premier player. The "American Eagle" Pillsbury (+12 -3 =1) soared into an early lead, but losses to Marshall (26 moves), Lasker (23 moves) and Burn consigned him to second place. Marshall, another brash young invader from across the Atlantic, also covered himself with glory (+11 -3 =2). He entered the final round with 12 points, then suffered a painful setback at the hands of the grimly pursuing Marcozy. The loss dropped him into a tie for third and fourth places with his Magyar conqueror. Enroute to his impressive showing, Marshall scored a 5 1/2 out of seven points against the other prizewinners. Burn (+11 -5 =0) distinguished the cause of British chess by securing the fifth of eight prizes - while the courageous Tchigorin (+9 -4 =3), overcoming a faltering start (losses in three of his first four games), fought back to claim the sixth prize. Just outside the prize list was Schlecter, who played below his usual strength. Nonetheless, he did manage to author a number of good games. His contest with Mason was singled out for inclusion in the 500 Master Games of Chess.Condition:Hinges cracked with rubbing, shelf wear, corners bumped rubbed, some foxing else a good to very good copy.

Kirkby, with the compliments of the author" ; Kirkby was an native of England and the rector of St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Ontario and of All Saint's in Collingwood, as well as Christ's Church in Batteaux. He was ordained in 1876 in Toronto. All Saint's turned against him in 1898 after 21 years of service, and greatly reduced his stipend from $900 per annum to $1; he sued and won. ; Mair, the member of the Canada First Movement, opposed the Provincial Government of Louis Riel's Red River Rebellion of 1869-70, and the North-West Rebellion of 1885, he was taken prisoner, escaped, and subsequently raised the force that eventually took Riel down ; "The first edition of 'Tecumseh', published in Toronto in 1886, had a quick sale, but, not being stereotyped, ran out of print, and a reissue is now called for. The author has often been asked to republish his youthful venture, entitled 'Dreamland and other poems', only a limited number of copies of which saw the light. Whilst the edition was passing through the binder's hands in Ottawa, and the author himself in the then wilderness of Prince Rupert's Land, the greater part of it was burnt in the Desbrats fire of 1869. In the following pages (Part II) the major portion of that unfortunate volume is included, with such revision as seemed desirable." --preface ; an important work of Canadian literature ; only 5 copies held: at Princeton, University of British Columbia, Vancouver Public, University of Western Ontario and the University of New Brunswick St. John ; rare ; near FINE [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Manuscrit complet d'un article pour sa rubrique "Journaux" au Mercure de France sous le Pseudonyme de R.(obert) de Bury. Mercure de France N°144 Décembre 1901

      Gourmont Rémy de - . "9 feuillets de papier vergé (12,5cm x 20 cm) rédigés à l'encre noire. Quelques notes typographiques au crayon à papier sans doute d'une autre main. Cet article a été publié dans le N°144 du Mercure de France de Décembre 1901. Biffures et modifications. Les deux derniers articles commentés ont été découpés et collés sur les feuillets afin de servir de citation. Dans cette chronique, Gourmont commente : Les concours littéraires (le Gaulois, 11 Nov.) / Les médecins et le théâtre médical (Le Gaulois, 13 nov.) / Un sonnet en "omphe" (Le Figaro, 13 nov.) Il commence par rappeler l'importance des concours littéraires malgré leur mauvaise réputation "Ils furent dépréciés par ceci qu'il y a toujours un lauréat, et presque toujours médiocre." Il rappelle que ce fut à l'occasion d'un tel concours que pour Rousseau, "ce fut le véritable début, à trente huit ans, d'un grand écrivain qui se croyait grand musicien." Un concours de la Société royale des sciences de Norvège, posant la question du libre arbitre fit connaitre Schopenhauer par son mémoire sur la Liberté de la volonté. "Le troisième concours auquel je songeais est celui qui nous valut Le Nouveau monde. En 1871, dit Villiers, un concours fut annoncé par la presse théâtrale de Paris. Une médaille honorifique, une somme de dix mille francs même, d'autres séductions encore étaient offertes à l'auteur dramatique français qui, dans un ouvrage en 4 ou 5 actes, rappellerait le plus puissamment l'épisode de la Proclamation de l'indépendance des Etats-Unis, dont le centième anniversaire tombait le 4 juillet 1876" Villiers remporta ce concours dont le jury était sous la présidence de Victor Hugo. "Ce succès déguignonna Villiers qui avait environs trente-sept ans. Vinrent les Contes Cruels : ce fut la gloire." Le concours du Gaulois, prétexte à cette évocation des concours littéraires est traité laconiquement : "Les résultats du concours du Gaulois, concours de lettres familières à la Sévigné, m'a paru fort honorable. Gourmont poursuit son article par sa chronique théatro-médicale :"Car ce qui intéresse encore plus ce brave homme [le bourgeois] que tout ce que je viens de dire, c'est sa santé : son estomac, son foie, ses glandes diverses et son appareil reproducteur." Il cite alors par découpage l'opinion du docteur Brouardel recueilli par le Gaulois sur les effets sur le corps et l'esprit des pièces médicales en s'appuyant sur Les Avariés. (Cette pièce de Brieux, répétée au Théâtre-Libre en 1901 a été interdite en France et n'a été crée que l'année suivante en Belgique avant d'être jouée enfin en France en 1905. Gourmont termine son article en se moquant allègrement du sonnet de Philippe Berthelot "Alexandre à Persépolis" dans lequel ce dernier trouve des rimes au mot "Triomphe". "Comme ils étaient sages, les poètes du dix-septième siècle, Triomphe est entré par surprise dans la langue, où il est resté isolé ;ll n'a pas de rime." L'ensemble de l'article est parfaitement lisible de même que les repentirs simplement biffés. Il est à noté que Gourmont réutilisera le début de son texte, légèrement modifié, dans une "Causerie" du 30 juin 1907 de la Dépêche de Toulouse, signée cette fois de son vrai nom. Bel article plein d'humour rendant un bel hommage à Villiers de Lisle Adam." [Attributes: Signed Copy]
