        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.

        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.

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.

      Scheltema 1901. Gebonden in een fraaie stempelband naar ontwerp van C.A. Lion Cachet, in Kalfsleer en in kleuren gebatikt. één van de 25 genummerde exemplaren op Japans papier, dit is nummer 10. Gr. in-folio (51 x 40 cm). 178pp.George Hendrik Breitner is generally considered one of the most important painters of the 19th century. Together with Isaac Israëls and Willem Witsen he is one of the founders of what was later called Amsterdam Impressionism. Typical of Breitner is his love for the dynamic city life in the streets.Breitner not only portrayed industrial activities of workmen and draught horses, he depicted busy street views with horse trams, carriages and carts, and domestic and factory maids. Besides town views he painted (self) portraits, interiors, women in kimonos, female nudes, flower still lifes and military subjects. The influence of photography, which was discovered in 1839 and was rapidly increasing in accessibility, can be seen in Breitner?s work. Strong contrasts in light and dark, faded contours like in a blurred snapshot, and cropped figures and objects are characteristic elements in his paintings.

        Class of 1904 Vassar College Scrapbook - Freshmen and Sophomore Years

      Poughkeepsie, New York, 1901. Scrapbook. Scrapbook. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Hardcover "Memorabilia of College Days" scrapbook, approximately 14"x11"x2". 42 full and partial pages; almost all with multiple items attached. Some with explanatory text provided by Ms. Lee. Additionally includes about 100 sheets of 3"x5" papers with pencil drawings of college life, presumably done by Ms. Lee and her friends, as well as another 100 sheets of 3"x5" papers with short pencil notes to Ms. Lee left by friends, presumably while she was not in her dorm room. Scrapbook is disbound and missing the rear cover. The heavy card pages are brittle and chipped along the edges, occasionally damaging the attached items. Parts of several pages are missing. This is a wonderful collection of ephemeral mementos documenting life of a popular and active student at America's premier turn-of-the-century woman's college who participated in many academic and extracurricular activities. The scrapbook contains approximately 125 items including an informational booklet about the school, newspaper clipping about Vassar athletes and their records, Lee's drawings, many event programs and tickets (opera, plays, concerts, recitals, a Paderewski performance, etc.), humorous scraps, quotations, many event announcements (receptions, a performance by the Svengalis, etc.), a dance card with pencil, notes and letters, a wishbone, a thin twig, class schedules, year-end examinations, valentines, a letter from the Superintendent of New York Prisons providing information for Lee to use in a debating contest, basketball booster information (dress, cheers, etc.), a baggage tag, and much more. Internet research reveals that after graduating, Ms. Lee (who was from Honesdale, Pennsylvania) became a teacher and served in the Red Cross during World War One.

        Memoirs of William Cox, JP

      Sydney and Brisbane: William Brooks & Co, 1901. Octavo, portrait frontispiece, coloured plate depicting arms and 2 photographic plates, wear to original tissue protecting title page, top edge gilt; in the original red moire cloth, gilt, just faintly sunned at spine. First edition, rare: an exceptional copy in the original red moiré cloth boards. This work includes printed extracts from Cox's journal, written while he was supervising the building of the first road across the Blue Mountains in late 1814. William Cox (1764-1837) arrived in the colony in 1800 as a lieutenant in the New South Wales Corps, and soon after acquired Brush Farm at Dundas from John Macarthur. By 1803 he had over-reached his credit and, having been suspended as paymaster for the Corps, the ensuing years were turbulent for the young officer (including being arrested and ordered to England in 1807). Cox, not long retired from the army, returned to New South Wales in 1810, where he was made a magistrate on the Hawkesbury by Macquarie. It was Macquarie himself, keen to capitalise on the recent crossing of the Blue Mountains, who commissioned Cox to supervise the construction of the road over the Blue Mountains. Cox was given a small working party of thirty convicts, each of whom had been promised their freedom as a reward. Together, the gang made 163 kilometres of road (including over a dozen bridges) over rugged and mountainous terrain in a staggeringly short six months. It was an extraordinary achievement, and Macquarie rightly praised his efforts and awarded him the first land grant beyond the mountains. This volume reproduces his journal, the original of which is held by the Mitchell Library.

        Artistic Oddities. A Girl's Album of Playful Watercolours from the turn of the Century, Primarily Done in British India

      A girl's album of playful watercolours from the turn of the century, primarily done in British India, with signed comments and humorous verse by family members and many other people. 1901-1907. 119 numbered pages. 280 x 220 mm. Black leather, scuffed, with gilt lettered title to upper front board. Loosely inserted are two letters, a list of songs, and a calling card. 71 pages of comical drawings, many pages with several drawings. The illustrations are mainly of animals, but also caricatures of people and passenger ships. Page 72 a drawing depicts a group of purple robed people, (corner of that page torn). Dorothy made drawings and then asked people to identify the creature and to write an explanation or a piece of doggerel. Some drawings appear to have been done in another hand, (p.68). The album begins in Dover on December 12, 1901 and ends on November 27, 1907 somewhere in India. Dorothy travelled on at least two passenger shgips, the S.S. Moldavia and the S.S. Marmora. Her travels take her to Simla and Lucknow. She also stayed at the Savoy Hotel, Mussorie. A very interesting album, full of fun and weird drawings and captions. .

This was taken by and came back to England with CAPTAIN H. E. M. STUDDY, of the Imperial Yeomanry, 85th.Company, 2nd. Battalion [he left South Africa for England aboard HMS Canada, July 18th. 1901]. *This Proclamation, one of many issued during the Boer Wars, was put out during the second phase of the Second Boer War, two days before Roberts considered the war over and England victorious. There followed two further years of a guerilla war, the third phase. The Orange Free State had been annexed on May 28th. 1900, and renamed the Orange River Colony. The stipulations of the above Proclamation can be seen as a prelude to Kitchener's 'scorched earth' policy operated during phase three. OFFERED WITH : HERFST, J. J.
