        "Der Fakir". Eigenh. Gedichtmanuskript mit U.

      O. O. u. D.. 2 SS. Sieben Strophen zu je vier Zeilen. 4to. Beiliegend eine Briefkarte mit vier eh. Zeilen und U. O. O. u. D. Qu.-kl.-8vo. Mit gedr. Briefkopf mit Monogramm und Adresse (diese gestrichen). Gerahmt.. Ein Gedicht aus Zweigs erster Buchveröffentlichung ("Silberne Saiten", Leipzig, Schuster und Loeffler, 1901; WG 1): "Der Fakir. Die Säule, auf der ich Regloser sitze | Ist wie eine Flamme steilauf gestellt. | Ich bin ihr Ende. Doch ihre Spitze | Reicht hinab bis in den Nabel der Welt [...]". - Die hier vorliegende Reinschrift des Gedichtes dürfte wohl etwas später entstanden sein. Das Begleitschreiben ("Mit dem herzlichen Danke für Ihre freundlichen Worte erlaube ich mir Ihnen anbei die Handschrift eines Gedichtes zu übersenden [...]") ist aufgrund der im Briefkopf gedruckten Adresse (VIII. Kochgasse 8) in die Jahre zwischen 1907 und 1916 zu datieren.

        George Hendrik Breitner : Indrukken en biographische aantekeningen van A. Pit, W. Steenhoff, Dr. Jan Veth en Prof. Dr. W. Vogelsang met 90 photogravures naar zijne werken. gedenkboek, LUXE UITGAVE !!!!

      Scheltema 1901. 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.

A.L.s. from Furnivall (previous folds, some foxing) written on the back of a corrected proof sheet (probably by Furnivall and probably from the Early English Text Society), to ""Miss Ward,"" and dated ""3.2.1900 (Brit. Mus)"": ""Last Sunday I asked some of you girls whether 25 of your Singing Club and others wd. come to our Girls' Sculling Club on Saty, 13 Oct. from 2.30 to 3 & then to scull up to Kew, scull in the Gardens, scull down to the Club, and then to tea & some singing & a little Dancing … The Club is on the bank of the river, next to Jack Biffin's boathouse. & & Also laid in is a 4- p. offprint (also with previous folds and a bit foxed) from the Westminster Gazette entitled The Furnivall Sculling Club … Unwritten Chapters from ""Nowhere,"" by Mrs. Frances Campbell who describes a day spent with Furnivall and his crew, and concludes, ""There was dancing after the music and reading, and then came the saying of good-night, and I, among others, turned homewards. The river came under Hammersmith Bridge like a torrent of black glass. The only substantial thing in the dusk was the Doctor walking beside me, and the tall young Stroke.

Furnivall was the founder and ""moving spirit"" behind The Early English Text Society. The Ballad Society, the Chaucer, the Wyclif, the Shakespeare, the Shelley and the Browning Societies were ""but some of his tireless activities."" He also established a rowing society and ""put thousands on the river who were never there before, and among these as the crowning touch of his energy and good intent, an eight sculled by shop girls."" & & This lot is also accompanied by William Benzie's biography of Furnivall: Dr. F.

        [ALBUM OF SEVENTY-FOUR PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE BOXER REBELLION IN PEKING, TIENTSIN, AND SURROUNDING AREAS, SHOWING SCENES OF THE CITY AND SEVERAL BEHEADINGS]

      Beijing. 1901-1902.. Twenty-seven leaves, with seventy-four photographs, most measuring 3 x 4 or 6 x 8 inches. Oblong. Three-quarter leather and cloth, manuscript inscription on front cover. Some light scattered foxing and soiling to mounts, but images very good. In a Oblong morocco box. A fascinating album of documentary views, showing the cities of Peking (Beijing) and Tientsin (Tianjin) after the Boxer Rebellion, highlighting the different foreign legations, the return of the Imperial entourage to the city, and several very grim images of beheading prisoners. With the opening of China to the West came a tide of commerce and Christian missionaries. In the Shandong Province, a religious movement arose that was both anti- Christian and anti-Western, dubbed the Society of Righteous and Harmonious Fists or "Boxers United in Righteousness." The movement, comprised mainly of young men from villages, practiced martial arts and believed themselves invulnerable to bullets and canon fire. Combined with a drought and several years of economic depression, attacks on Christian missionaries and Chinese Christians increased in the last few years of the century, culminating in the uprising of the summer of 1900. The Boxer Rebellion spread south from Shandong into the area around Peking and Tientsin, finally moving into the city. The Boxers, supported by the Chinese army and the Imperial government, besieged foreigners who walled themselves inside the Legation quarter. Ultimately, a coalition of soldiers from Austria-Hungary, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States invaded China, defeating the Chinese and occupying the area until the peace accords of September 1901. The cover of this album is inscribed "Henry Lawson to Joel Docking, Seattle, Oct. 27, 1903." Some of the first photographs show Dagald Lawson (d. 1930), a Scottish Presbyterian missionary and his colleague David Urquhart, both of the China Inland Mission, who worked at Yu-wu, Lu- ch'eng, and Shan-si. Dagald Lawson was married to Jeannie Lawson (d. 1933), who has some renown as the host of Gladys Aylward in the story recounted in the film "Inn of the Sixth Hapiness." We presume that Henry Lawson was one of their children who, as Aylward reports, grew up and left China. The photos in this album show the destruction of buildings, the return of the Imperial Court to Peking (January 1902), tourist destinations such as the Great Wall, local customs such as foot binding and an opium den, views of the German, French, English, and Italian presence in the city, and finally, fourteen photos depict the execution of prisoners, including grisly and graphic shots of severed heads. All in all, a fascinating look at China immediately after the Boxer revolt.

        The Octopus: A Story of California

      Doubleday, Page and Company, New York 1901 - First edition, first issue with the J.J. Little device on the copyright page and all textual points. A little offsetting to the endpapers from the jacket flaps and other light wear, still fine with the gilt particularly fresh, in a near fine example of the exceptionally rare dustwrapper with a few small spots and a shallow chip at the crown. Apparently this is the only known copy in the original dustwrapper -- Joseph R. McElrath (author of *Frank Norris: a Descriptive Bibliography*) had never seen or heard of a copy in jacket, nor is there any mention of the jacket in *BAL* or *Lohf and Sheehy*, and it is lacking from the Bancroft Library's Frank Norris Collection. In addition, this is a bibliographically interesting copy -- McElrath notes two states of p.526 of the first issue and this copy is in the second state (the leaf a corrected cancel), but there are two blanks laid in opposite each side of the new leaf, each offset from the text and clearly present from printing and used to blot the fresh ink of the cancel. Because of the presence of the jacket and the easily removable blotter leaves, we strongly suspect this was a publisher's file copy or otherwise set aside and never offered in a contemporary bookstore. The first volume in the author's proposed *Epic of Wheat* trilogy. Norris died in October 1902 at age 32, and only this first volume was published during his lifetime. The second, *The Pit* was published posthumously, and the third was never finished. The nicest condition copy obtainable of an important book from the "muckraking" era, probably unique in jacket. *BAL* 15036, *McElrath* A6.I.a. See this book in 3D on our site.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Winston S. Churchill"), to Major James B. Pond, with related notes

      [New York], january 31, 1901. 3 pp. pen and ink on three sheets of 105, Mount Strett, W. stationery, rectos only, with original envelope. Creased from prior folding, small closed tears at folds, else fine . On December 1, 1900, Churchill sailed for New York to begin a two month speaking tour of North America organized by Major James Pond. The young Churchill was fresh from the battlefield of four of Queen Victoria's wars, where he served a dual role as officer and war correspondent. His lecture, "The War as I Saw It," was a telling of his views on the South African War and his escape from captivity, all illustrated with magic lantern slides. Major James Burton Pond (1838-1903) was a lecture promoter who, in addition to Churchill, represented Samuel Clemens, Arthur Conan Doyle and Henry Stanley. Churchill writes to Pond on the final day of the tour, two days before he set sail for England on the day of Queen Victoria's funeral. Reading in part, "I am much obliged to you for the handsome volumes you have presented me with, and which I shall add to my small but growing library with great satisfaction - I am of course disappointed with the small profit [£1,600] my tour has resulted in, but at the same time I do not regret my visit to these shores for I have gained a great many new ideas and learned and have learned a good deal that will be of value later on. I am sorry we had a disagreement for although I am not quite convinced that you have managed the lecture tour well, I fear I was unreasonable. However, any annoyance I may have caused you was more than balanced by the wide circulation of your unfortunate 'interview'; so that I think we may - forget the business -" Though this letter aims at something of a reconciliation, Churchill was deeply unhappy with Pond's handling of the tour. "Pond's advance work had left Winston so angry that he threatened to call off the tour. Posters hailed him as 'the hero of five wars,' at least one too many. A reception committee of local dignitaries featured so many Dutch names that it might have been made up of Boers - Things were not off to a good start - Winston fought with Pond - he was nothing but a vulgar Yankee impresario, who was taking 30 percent of the fees and subcontracting some of the lectures to local agents for a fixed guarantee" (Morgan, Churchill Young Man in a Hurry, pp. 141-144). With a collection of papers and notes relating to the tour and the Churchill/Pond relationship, including: 6 p. autograph draft of notes by Pond, describing several unpleasant anecdotes concerning Churchill's lecture tour. March 5, 1901. "Buel [Clarence Clogh Buel, editor of The Century Magazine] asked me how I ever came to bring to this country that ass of a Churchill - 'He is the biggest idiot you have brought here yet' said Buel." The note goes on to relate Richard Le Gallienne's account of Churchill's stay with bibliophile James Young of Minneapolis and Churchill's imperious behavior towards his host. Eastern Union telegram from Churchill to Pond in Stamphix, NY, announcing his decision to lecture in North America. London, July 30, 1900. "- Have decided come lecture in America during December January February Perhaps fortnight longer -" with address in pencil, "35a Great Cumberland Pl. London W." Split vertically with old repair. 26 pp. typed carbon of notes by Pond concerning Churchill's lecture tour and their acrimonious relationship, with a few notes in Pond's hand. A fascinating and detailed account of the breakdown of the relationship between Churchill and Pond, with transcripts of letters and recalled conversations. The typescript focuses on Churchill's refusal while in Canada to continue the lecture on the grounds that his percentage of the door is too small

        Quo Vadis [A Tale of the Time of Nero] [Association Copy] [ephemera]

      London: George Routledge & Sons, Ltd, 1901 London: George Routledge & Sons Ltd., 1901. Translated from the Polish by S.A. Binion. Apparent gift edition. Association copy. Please see scans. 12mo, 512 pp. Full cream calf, gilt lettering, gilt-tooled design of almost byzantine ornateness, red stained page edges, elaborate satin-textured gilt floral endpapers. The words "Constance" and then "Rome 1902" are at right center of cover (see below). Social calling card of Miss Constance DeYoung laid in. Faint soiling at places on the cream calf, some fading of page edge dye bottom and top, minute bleeding of red page edge dye onto edge of endpapers, calf board curving just a bit. Just Very Good, but a beautiful and impressive binding with serious shelf appeal. Henryk Sienkiewicz, Polish author of both historical and revolutionary bent, earned the 1905 Nobel Prize in large part on the strength of his tale of Christian persecution in era of Nero, Quo Vadis. This finely bound gift copy is dedicated on the cover to "Constance" - that being Miss Constance de Young, of the socially situated San Francisco family: her father was Mike de Young, founder of The Chronicle. At the time of this gift, she was apparently of debutante age. Later, she married Joseph O. Tobin, nephew of Joseph S.Tobin, a onetime PG&E director; PG&E and The Chronicle were long of a kinship of sorts, through such family bonds. Joseph O. Tobin later became an owner of The Chronicle himself. Constance's social calling card is laid in here, giving her address, as a young lass, as "1919 California Street". She wouldn't move far: per the San Francisco Social Register listings for 1927 (see below), as Mrs. Tobin, she would reside at 1969 California Street. Familiar San Francisco names, all, and looking at the book and the card here, silently, arouses something of a wistful and envious feeling. As the dedicated gift copy with ephemera, unique; not replaceable. L-40n From the 1927 San Francisco Social Register: Name: Tobin, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph O. and Juniors Miss Patricia and Juniors Miss Consuelo Maiden name: Constance de Young Clubs: Pcu.Sfg.Fr.Bur.Uv.

It is unclear how the Simonds' and Muir met, but they did so on may occasions, and correspondence to this effect can be found in letters to Muir by Edith (Mrs. Ray) Simonds in the Muir archives. Books signed by Muir are uncommon and there are no auction records for a signed copy of this work in any edition in at least the last fifty years. Provenance: From the library of Kenneth E. Hill, with his bookplate. A very good copy, joint just starting after title page, boards rubbed, small faint circular stain to front board, small bookplate, occasional offsetting from mounted photos and small advertisement for book (which is laid in loose).
