        The Strenuous Life: Essays And Addresses

      New York: The Century Company, 1901. Third edition (often inaccurately referred to as the first edition; third issue); the second and third editions added substantial content not in the first edition. Publisher?s cloth with leather title label (worn); some soiling; minor pencil underlining and notes inside the back cover; very good. Presentation copy; inscribed by the author as President, ?My dear Grey - Pray accept this little volume with the sincere regard of a fellow worker in the field of social effort. Sincerely yours, Theodore Roosevelt. White House, March 5, 1902. To Earl Grey.? The recipient was the fourth Earl Grey, a title he inherited from his uncle. He was an M.P., active in colonial affairs and social reform, who achieved prominence and success as Governor General of Canada in 1904. The title piece, a speech given in 1899, has become synonymous with the author?s vigorous, energetic philosophy of life.

En 1911, le Prix Nobel de Littérature lui est attribué pour L'Oiseau bleu. Symbolisme et mysticisme alimentent ses drames : la princesse Madeleine, 1889; Pelléas et Mélisande, 1892; l'Oiseau bleu 1909; et ses essais, la Vie des abeilles, 1901.Ce livre a eu des répercussions fortes. Bien que Maurice Maeterlinck soit un apiculteur enthousiaste et complètement au courant de la vie des abeilles, il n'a pas eu l'intention d'écrire un traité scientifique. Son livre n'est pas un abstrait d'histoire naturelle mais plutôt un travail poétique exubérant abondant en réflexions. TALVART XIII, 12, n°13a. Edition originale en bon état (very good condition) + TRES CURIEUSE LETTRE AUTOGRAPHE MANUSCRITE DE Maeterlink à RACHILDE : En compagnie de sa maîtresse Georgette Leblanc, sœur de l'auteur Maurice Leblanc il tiendra vers 1897, dans la Villa Dupont, 48, rue Pergolèse un salon parisien fort couru. Ce gotha culturel comprenait, entre autres Rachilde à qui il à écrit cette lettre manuscrite jointe : " Madame, Je ne sais pourquoi tout ce que vous écrivez me touche et m'intéresse profondément. Il y a tant de dires que d'autres disent plus beaux en mieux faits et qui ne parviennent pas à me dire quelque chose. J'ai je ne sais quelle joie vierge à vous lire. Comme quelqu'un qui boirait de la rosée, ou qui verrait un spectacle tout à fait naturel, ou qui prendrait un bain de bonne foi, enfin un je ne sais quoi dans le genre qui serait délicieux et vivifiant Je ne sais à quoi cela tient, mais c'est un plaisir qui semble augmenter en moi la somme de Vie que j'ai et j'éprouve parfois quelque ennui à vous l'avouer parce que je crains que vous ne veuillez pas le croire et cependant c'est absolument vrai Est-ce parce que vous êtes la première femme qui nous apprenne vraiment quelque chose de la femme ?Je ne puis me lasser de dire que c'est extraordinaire et délicieux. Même quand vous voulez faire de grandes choses décoratives comme Les Vendanges de Sodome (que je vous remercie infiniment de m'avoir dédiées, elles sont très belles) ou la Panthère (plus belle encore peut-être) lorsque vous voulez faire les choses selon les recettes un peu fixes du poème en prose c'est d'une beauté tout autre que celle qui semblait s'annoncer et que vous aviez probablement voulu.

A bright near fine copy that shows a hint of fading to the spine and minor rubbing the head of the spine. Apparently inspired by Jules Verne's Journey to the Moon, this is one of pioneering works of science fiction. Unlike Verne's earlier work, Wells had all the scientific aspects of his lunar voyage verified for plausibility by experts at the time. In 1919 it became the first of the films to be based on Wells' work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Publisher's dark blue decorative cloth, the upper cover and spine stamped gilt (the first and primary binding state, of four). An unusually Fine, bright copy, the hinges uncracked, of one of the most difficult of Wells's science fiction titles to be found in collectible condition. The last and perhaps most complex of Wells's early scientific romances, inspired by Jules Verne’s 'Journey to the Moon.' Unlike Verne, Wells had all scientific aspects of his lunar voyage verified for plausibility by experts at the time. In 1919, the book was turned into the first of the films to be based on Wells's work. "These early 'scientific romances' remain unsurpassed for their imagination and visionary power. Where Wells's contemporaries saw him as adding the scientific imagination to nineteenth-century romance, the twentieth century regarded him as the greatest of the forerunners of modern science fiction. His tales of future evolution, alien intelligence, interplanetary warfare and technological dystopia anticipated most of science fiction's thematic repertoire."

        VISION OR HELL, PURGATORY, AND PARADISE, of Dante Alighieri. Translated by the Rev. Henry Francis Cary, M.A. With the Life of Dante, Chronological View of his Age, Additional Notes, and Index.

      London George Bell and Sons 1901 - An early twentieth century edition using Cary's translation, the standard translation for centuries. With frontispiece portrait. 8vo, in a handsome and pleasing binding of three quarter vellum and light-green cloth with decorative designs to the spine panel and with morocco label lettered in gilt, border work to the binding executed in gilt, t.e.g. xlviii, 543 pp The binding tight and very well preserved, the book clean and strong and appealing. A HANDSOMELY BOUND COPY OF THIS IMPORTANT TRANSLATION INTO ENGLISH. Cary’s famous translation has long been considered the first modern rendering of Dante’s timeless epic into English. While previous English translations prior to Cary’s had been accomplished in the 18th century, none were able to transfer into the English language the beauty and richness of language for which Dante has forever been revered. Cary was influenced greatly by the Romantics and by Coleridge in particular. Cary had met Coleridge earlier in his life, while pacing the beach one day, reading Homer to his son. "‘Sir,’ said Coleridge, attracted by the sound of the Greek, ‘yours is a face I should know. I am Samuel Taylor Coleridge.’ During the rest of the day, the wondrous stranger discoursed on Homer making young Cary ‘feel as one from whose eyes the scales were just removed,’ and in the evening carried home the translation of Dante, of which he had never even heard. The next day he was able to repeat whole pages, and his winter course of lectures gave it celebrity. " [Dict of Nat’l Bio] It took Cary many years to make the complete translation. Indeed, the parts of the COMEDY were released over a number of years from 1805 on. Though the text was finished in mid-1812, Cary was unable to secure a publisher and was, after some years, obliged even with his very modest means to publish the work at his own expense. The new and first edition published by a general publisher was secured in 1819. The translation received little public attention at first, but eventually became well-known, primarily because of the praise of Coleridge in his lectures at the Royal Institution. Moreover, an article by Ugo Foscolo in the Edinburgh Review, with additions by Samuel Rogers, lauded the translation and together with Coleridge’s support, led to a general recognition of its merit. Cary’s translation was acknowledged as being original rather than imitative and true to Dante’s original text. This is a particularly attractive copy of the Cary translation.

"Echo des Oeuvres et des Missions de la Société de Marie" puis "Organes des Missions et des Oeuvres", elle propose un panorama tout à fait remarquable et passionnant des développements de ces missions dans le monde entier : par exemple au Mexique (Durango.), en Europe (Autriche, Espagne, Belgique, Italie, Suisse.), avec une prédilection pour l'Amérique et l'Asie. On remarque ainsi les nombreux articles consacrés aux missions d'Asie, celles de Chine et surtout aux missions du Japon (Urakami, Tokyo, .) ainsi qu'aux missions développées aux Etats-Unis (Dayton, Cleveland, Colombus, Erie, Chicago, Honolulu aux Iles Sandwich futur Hawaï, etc.). Les comptes-rendus de mission, ou les visites pastorales des supérieurs en Asie ou en Amérique sont souvent illustrés et font l'objet d'articles du plus grand intérêt. La revue devient "Marianiste" de 1959 à 1969 puis "Présence Marianiste" à partir de 1970. Etat très satisfaisant (dos frottés et qq. petits accrocs sur certains dos n'affectant pas le texte, anciens cachets et cotes de bibliothèques religieuse en dos) pour cet ensemble très rare, rassemblant l'intégralité de cette impressionnante série suivie des numéros du "Messager de la Société de Marie" et de la revue 'l'Apôtre de Marie" de 1897 à 1987.

        The Day of the Rabblement" [published in Two Essays. "A Forgotten Aspect of the University Question" by F.J.C. Skeffington and "The Day of the Rabblement" by James A. Joyce]

      Dublin: Gerrard Bros, [1901] - The first edition of Joyce's second published work, and his first appearance in a book, one of only 85 copies printed (his first appearance was a review of Ibsen's When We Dead Awaken published in the Fortnightly Review the previous year). Joyce's essay, written when he was a nineteen- year-old student at University College, Dublin, is an attack on the Irish Literary Theater and its founders - Yeats, Moore and Martyn. He accuses them of abandoning the high ideals of the Theater's founding and catering to popular tastes, becoming "the property of the rabblement of the most belated race in Europe." The essay appears here in print with school friend F.J.C. Skeffington's essay advocating equal university rights for women. Both essays were first rejected ("refused insertion by the Censor") by St. Stephen's, the newspaper of the University College, Dublin, at which point Joyce and Skeffington gathered the 2 pounds 5 shillings necessary to have the essays printed at a local stationery shop First edition of Joyce's second published work, one of 85 published. 8vo. 8 pp. Original pink printed wrappers, stapled. Faint crease marks from prior folding, small stain to top margin. In red cloth drop box. Provenance: John Howell Books. Slocum & Cahoon B1 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

London: Sands & Company, [1901]. First edition. Large quarto (11 5/16 x 8 3/16 inches; 288 x 218 mm.). [48] pp. Three-color pictorial title-page and twenty-one full page black and white drawings. Publishers dark blue cloth over boards, front cover pictorially stamped in red, black, brown and white. A fine copy.Contents: Shopping; The Naughty Fishes; Tabby and Tommy at Work; Tommy and Tabby at Play; Peter at the Seaside; Peter Bathing; Peter's Pussie's Party; Peter at the Barber's The Disobedient Kitten; Just out of my Bath; Indegestion; Waiting for a Bite; A Bite at Last; The Musician; Who threw that Boot?; A Kitten Brave and Bold; A Wonderful Story; The Club Match; Well Stopped, Sir!, The Lodging-House Cat and A Christmas Toast.This book contains several illustrations of a cat called Peter. "It is not, I think, too far-fetched to speculate that Louis Wain's having met Peter changed the course of domestic history. Certainly, the attitude of the general public towards cats, and their feeling (or otherwise) for cats was greatly affected by Louis Wain's work. Where did Peter come from? In later years Louis' sisters claimed they had given him to Louis and Emily as a wedding present. This seems unlikely, as relations were exceedingly strained at the time, unless the present was intended as a deliberate slight, in which case the result was more than ironic. On another occasion, Claire Wain said that the two youngest sisters, Felicie and herself, had given Louis 'a beautiful black and white kitten, which was very frolicsome, as a present on his twentieth birthday, and that from that time he had started drawing cats, sitting on the floor and sketching hour after hour… Wherever Peter came from, he was certainly born in 1883, and may therefore have been a belated wedding present. It was in that year that Louis first drew cats, and Emily's illness no doubt contributed to his later concentration on what eventually became an obsession…" A "Grimalkin" is an old, or evil looking female cat. The term stems from "grey" (the color) plus "malkin", an archaic term for a cat, derived from a hypocoristic form of the female name Maud. Scottish legend makes reference to the grimalkin as a faery cat that dwells in the highlands."In a lighter vein, also in 1901, and more important to Wain's popular reputation, Sands & Co published Cats, illustrated by Wain and with verses by 'Grimalkin' ('pseud', as the British Museum catalogue coyly has it). Cats comprised 21 poems, each faced by a full-page line drawing. It was a very popular volume, and made a lasting impression on children who owned it." Rodney Dale, Louis Wain: The Man Who Drew Cats, page, 49.At the end of the nineteenth century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. “He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves” (H.G. Wells).“From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…although he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!” (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).Dale, 31.

        A MAN OF DEVON: Short Stories Including the First Appearance of a Forsyte Character (the Florence Henniker-Oliver Brett Copy)

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood & Sons, 1901. [Galsworthy, John) Sinjohn, John (pseud.) A MAN OF DEVON. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1901. FIRST EDITION of the author's fourth and rarest book, a first edition which, in terms of survival and as a condition-rarity, ranks #1 out of all Galsworthy's major works. This is the NEAR FINE (one corner bumped, tiniest bit of wear) copy which belonged to Florence Henniker, Thomas Hardy's collaborator and love-interest, a woman who was part of Galsworthy's literary circle (her bold ink ownership signature on half-title). An excellent ASSOCIATION COPY and particularly desirable in the light of Galsworthy's later refusal to reprint or acknowledge any his first four "John Sinjohn" pseudonymous books (which fictionalized poorly-veiled personal life details, including the illicit affair he had with his cousin's wife). Curious Florence Henniker may have found out about Galsworthy's authorship of A MAN OF DEVON on the sly as Galsworthy did not present, as far as we know, a single copy of the four Sinjohn first editions to friends or family. This copy's provenance further includes the legendary collection of Oliver Brett, 3d Viscount of Esher (1881-1963, bookplate). A MAN OF DEVON consists of four short stories, one of which contains the first appearance of a Forsyte Character: "The Salvation of Swithin Forsyte." This short story was the seed that launched the nine legendary Forsyte novels as well as two TV miniseries (1967 & 2002). So here you have it: his rarest book in superb original condition, with an alluring association, and the first place one can read the story that launched a literary saga which still has relevant and iconic value to our 21st century.. Signed. First Edition. Pictorial Cover. Near Fine.
