This book was followed by many other historical novels, 39 in all, the best known of which are The Tower of London (1840), Old St. Paul’s, a Tale of the Plague and the Fire of London (1841), Windsor Castle: An Historical Romance (1843), and The Lancashire Witches (1849). Ainsworth became editor of Bentley’s Miscellany in 1839, and he owned that periodical from 1854 to 1868. He was also editor at various times of The New Monthly Magazine and his own Ainsworth’s Magazine" (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature).

        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. .

        THE RAVEN, BY QUARLES. DONE INTO PRINT & DECORATED BY HAND BY ROBERT H. PERDUE.

      Robert H. Perdue, Cleveland 1901 - 4to., Seven French folded leaves of handmade paper, with texts printed in black and red inks on a thin onionskin which is applied to the larger leaf. Seven elaborate illustrations in black, entirely hand drawn, one on each leaf. Publisher's gray paper over boards, cloth -backed with simple titling on the upper cover. Slight bump to one board tip and moderate dusting to the covers, otherwise a fine copy. Little is known of Robert Hartley Perdue although he was a highly skilled illustrator and inventor. In 1901 he produced ten hand-drawn copies of The Raven, each with the same illustrations, and each numbered, this is copy number 5. In 1902 he produced a slightly smaller version of The Raven, in an edition of 93 copies, with illustrations based upon the 1901 version, but this time the illustrations were accomplished with the use of the printing press. B.A.L. Volume 7, p. 148 lists the 1902 edition. A search of OCLC locates 10 copies of the 1902 edition, but none of this earlier hand-drawn edition. In 1919 Robert H. Perdue and Leroy W. Theis obtained a patent for the "Leroy Lettering Guide, a drafting appliance suitable for use in lettering, tracings and the like". It would seem that Perdue used some earlier form of this devise in the production of The Raven.In 1934, Robert Hartley Perdue published Descendants of Dr. William Perdue.

        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.

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]

        The Making of an American. (PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED BY RIIS TO ANITA McCORMICK BLAINE, 1866-1954, PATRON OF HULL HOUSE, WHERE RIIS RESIDED.)

      New York: Macmillan, 1901. - Frontispiece, xiii, 443 pp, 1 leaf (ads); illus. Original cloth, top edge gilt. Rebacked, with original spine preserved (new endpapers).

'On September 26, 1889, Anita McCormick, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Cyrus H. McCormick, married Emmons Blaine, son of James Blaine of Maine' (please ask for source). 'Hull-House, founded in 1889 by Jane Addams and Ellen Gates Starr, was the first social settlement in Chicago . . . By 1894, 20 residents were living at Hull-House. Early residents tended to be middle- and upper middle-class, college educated, and from a wide range of professions. . . . The settlement became a center for discussions of social reform and attracted well-known visitors and supporters such as architect Frank Lloyd Wright, attorney Clarence Darrow, suffragist Susan B. Anthony, photographers Jacob Riis and Lewis Hine, sculptor Lorado Taft, Fabian Socialists Beatrice and Sidney Webb, and temperance leader Frances Willard. . . . Although prominent Chicago businessmen made contributions, the bulk of financial support came from wealthy Chicago women. Mary Rozet Smith, Helen Culver, Anita McCormick Blaine, Mary Wilmarth, and Sara Hart contributed. Louise deKoven Bowen was the single largest contributor to the settlement and after she was appointed treasurer of Hull-House Association in 1907, she assumed much of the responsibility for fund-raising strategy' (Hull House Collection, An inventory of the collection at UIC; University of Illinois at Chicago Library Web site).

        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]

        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.

Waite, and inscribed to him by the author [Abbé Petit] on the first blank: "A Monsieur A. E. Waite, Redacteur au journal The Light. Respectueux hommage de l'auteur [signed] Abbé J. A. Petit." The book appears to be a completely rewritten version (well over triple the length) of "La Rénovation religieuse, ouvrage édité par la Desse de Pomar (Lady Caithness)" that was published in 1895. The anonymous author was Abbé Joseph-Alphonse Petit (1842-1921), a Priest who was prone to having visions, notably of Mary Queen of Scots, Louis XVI, and Marie-Antoinette, as well as of some more conventional religious figures. Petit developed a great interest in various aspects of the occult, including what would now be termed "psychic phenomena," spiritualism, telepathy, mesmerism, etc. He was active in French and British occult and spiritualist circles, and was acquainted with Maria Mariategui, Lady Caithness (1830 - 1895) the London-born Duchesse de Medina Pomar, who was deeply involved in Parisian spiritualist and occult circles and under whose editorship "La Rénovation religieuse" was first published in 1895. This greatly expanded edition contains some theological matter, but is has much of a hermetic or occult nature, examining subjects such as the world of angels, the origin of spirits, communication with spirits, the guardian angel, dangers of psychical activity, etc. etc. It is said that when it became known that Petit was responsible for the work his Bishop ordered him to renounce all ties with the occult and leave Paris. (Caillet Vol. III, 8570) Some of the books in Waite's personal library, including this volume, were given to the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia - the occult fraternity which begat the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn - and this volume also has the contemporary London S.R.I.A. library stamp to front endpaper. This and various other books were later de-accessioned and sold when the collection was scaled back in 1984. Endpapers lightly foxed, pages browned especially at edges and outer margins, text clean. Overall a tight VG copy of a scarce title with an interesting provenance. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

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. Et ne pas parvenir à faire ce que l'on voudrait est je crois le signe le plus sur d'autre chose que le talent .Maurice Maeterlink " .

        THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON

      Newnes 1901 - First edition, first issue. Original dark blue cloth with gilt titles and vignette on spine and upper cover. Black endpapers. 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]

        First Men in the Moon, The [First Issue]

      George Newnes, London 1901 - First British Edition, First Issue, with black coated end papers. 8vo; viii, 342pp, with a frontispiece and 11 further full-page illustrations by Claude Shepperson. 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."
