        Il Re Dei Cuochi; ossia, L'arte di mangiare al gusto degl'italiani con cibi nostrali e stranieri; opere contenente quanto è necessario per saper bene ordinare e servire un pranzo, non chè i migliori metodi per fare confetture, rosoli, liquori e gelati. [The King of Chefs; or, The art of eating, after the manner of the Italians, our own and foreign dishes; containing what is necessary to know about ordering and serving a meal, as well as the best methods for creating preserves, spirits, liqueurs, and ice creams.]

      Firenze: Adriano Salani, Editore, 1901. Small octavo (17.5 x 12 cm.), 359 pages. Frontispiece (see description below) and one diagram (a banquet table, from above, set for twenty-four persons). First edition. The earliest recorded copies of this title were printed by Salani in 1904, and there were numerous subsequent printings (see Orazio Bagnasco, II, pages 1406-1407). A recipe collection and guide to the Italian peninsula. L'arte di mangiare presumes a certain focus on batters, grains, creams, and sauces. One might linger over Fritelle di Erbe Odorose (fragrant herb fritters, no. 293) or a regional Sfogliatine with candied fruit (no. 672). But the seven hundred ninety-six numbered recipes insistently embrace fish (tench, bream, mullet, paraghi, carpione), game, and the full complement of bovidae - not to forget hooves, stomachs, testicles, and tongues. The indispensable note "salateli allora quanto basta" ("then add salt to taste") recurs, but precision of measurement is enlisted when needed: Scorzonera (salsify) should be cut in eight or ten centimeter lengths (no. 221); Gelato di Crema alla Mandorla (no. 776) requires three hundred grams of almonds to fourteen egg yolks. And, for those who desire the carmine effect, one needs ten grams of the scale insect cochineal to prepare the liqueur Alkermes (no. 767) - which, in turn, will be needed for the Zuppa Inglese (no. 659). A small host of Italian cookery companions appear in the middle half of the nineteenth century with names of their author(s) omitted, evidently as promise that the cuisine advocated therein would be found to be communal, "of the people" - in a word, national - and not, therefore, the concoctions of a chef in the employ of nobility. They might be either men or women, or even both, as in the case of Il cuoco milanese e la cuciniera piemontese (Milan: Lombardi, 1853). Chefs of noble houses, by contrast, advertised their names and co-opted the language of hierarchy. Probably the most successful cookbook of this milieu was that by Giovanni Nelli: Il re dei cuochi: Trattado di gastronomia universale (Milan: Legros, 1868; and reprinted many times); though later followers raised the royal banner, trumping Nelli's The King of Cooks with The King of Kings of Cooks (Jean-Marie Parmentier's Il re dei re dei cuochi [Turin: Bietti, 1895]) and The Emperor of Cooks (Vitalino Bossi's L'imperatore dei cuochi [Rome: Perini, 1894]). An anonymous sovereign, then, is something of a hybrid. Il re dei cuochi (originally published in 1881) appropriates from Nelli the opening phrase of its title and reproduces on its frontispiece the image of a cook holding a saucepan and slotted spoon that had appeared on Nelli's cover (a popular engraving in neither the first nor last of its sightings). It may have been intended as a less expensive alternative to the Trattado. Recipes occupy center stage: general instructions (obligations of the host, table service, preliminary ingredients notes) are dispensed with in twenty-two pages. Thereafter the impression is one of an attempt to embrace the regions of the peninsula, supplemented with a nod to the Mediterranean beyond, with suffixes such as all 'uso toscano, all'uso di Napoli, alla romagnola, alla veneziana, alla cremonese, alla milanese, alla lucchese, alla triestina, alla perugina, alla genovese, alla lombarda, alla tirolese, alla torinese, alla marchigiana; and all' Istriono, alla provenzale, all' uso di Levante. One leaf loosened, two pages very slightly chipped; otherwise text block solid and pages clean. rebound in lightly worn, publisher's dark green pebbled cloth. Spine rubbed, with gilt short title on spine. Still very good or better. Owner's plate "Ex Libris John Fuller" inside front cover. Very rare. [OCLC locates no copies of the 1891 printing, but two copies dated 1894 with similar pagination, LOC & Texas Tech].

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire Année complète 1901 EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Bureaux de la Revue, 1901. Fine. Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1901, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding Edition Editor at bradel half percaline dark green, smooth back, as part of black morocco, small gilded iron and double gold mesh queue.Douze the January to December 1901. Covers conservées.Chaque number is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Paul Fort, André Gide ("Emmanuel Signoret", "The Limits of Art"), Francis Jammes, etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a review Monthly belonging to the first wave of small symbolist journals. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular collaborators, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. L'Ermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time like the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] that deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his symbolist spirit, employees are more interested in poetry than fiction. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, believes that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddling the end of the century aesthetics and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1901. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Paul Fort, André Gide ("Emmanuel Signoret", "Les limites de l'art"), Francis Jammes, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

        The Cruise of the Petrel: A Story of 1812

      New York: McClure, Phillips & Co.. 1901. First. First edition. Gray cloth stamped in black in white with a picture of a frigate at sea illustrated by Florence Pearl Nosworthy. Very good with slight darkening of the spine, front hinge cracked, light foxing on endpapers, still an attractive copy. Inscribed by the author on the front fly: "To C.C. Converse, from his friend, T. Jenkins Hains, Sept 26, 03, Echo Boy, Yacht Edna." Seven relatable newspaper clippings laid in on preliminary pages causing some offsetting. Also, tipped in is a silver gelatin photograph of the author behind the ship's wheel, posing with a male and two female companions (one of which may be Amelie Troubetzkoy). An added bonus to this already phenominal item is a small piece of paper affixed to the page preceding the contents with the signature of the author and poet, Amelie Troubetzkoy.Thornton Jenkins Hains, 1866-1953, was an American novelist who found popularity with his nautical tales. His maternal grandfather, Admiral Thornton A. Jenkins, served in the War of 1812 and Hains used the logbooks he kept as inspiration for The Cruise of the Petrel. Hains is mostly remembered for his part in the "Regatta Murder", the killing of William Annis by Hains' brother, Peter C. Hains. Peter's wife was having an affair with Annis and it was Thornton that told his brother this information. This resulted in Peter murdering Annis at the Ladies' Regatta while his brother stood watch. Although not convicted of any crime the event soiled his reputation and he adopted the pen name Mayn Clew Garnett from then on. A scarce and intriguing copy of an interesting title. .

Wells."W.E. Henley (1849-1903), a writer and influential editor of The National Observer and other papers "had a gift for finding and encouraging new talent" (ODNB). He published works by Kipling, Hardy, Yeats, and Barrie among others, and early in his career he collaborated with his friend Robert Louis Stevenson on four plays. Henley encouraged Wells to develop a series of time traveling stories into what became The Time Machine, Wells's first success and what remains his most important scientific romance. Henley serialized the work and even secured a generous publication agreement with Heinemann. "In making friends with Henley he had made the contact that was to launch his career" (MacKenzie, H.G. Wells, p. 105). The First Men in the Moon was the first Wells novel to be filmed; it was produced by Gaumont Films and released in 1919. A scarce title inscribed. Currey, p. 518; Hammond B7; Wells 18. Provenance: W.E. Henley (presentation inscription from Wells); Sotheran's (bookseller's ticket); Eugene Plunkett (bookplate and penciled inventory number on front free endpaper)

        MISS INCOGNITA: A NOVEL by "Don Jon" [pseudonym]

      New York, Chicago, London: F. Tennyson Neely Co., [1901].. Octavo, pp. [iii-v] vi-xx [7] 8-321 [322-324] [note: erratically paged, but complete], original burgundy cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, pictorial paper onlay affixed to front panel, t.e.g. First edition. A presentation copy with an inscription in Cheyney's hand on the front free endpaper: " A little remembrance / of Atlantic City / and / Joseph Tyler Butts." Eccentric SF "romance novel, set in Chicago, New York, London and Bermuda in the years following the Civil War. The plot is centered around a psychologist and inventor, who through the use of hypnotism and 'hydro-electric vibratoners' attempts to control young women to submit to his whims. He becomes infatuated with a young girl under his tutelage, tricks her into submitting herself for an experiment with his 'vibratoners' and marries her once she is under his control. Unbeknownst to him, she is his daughter from a previous liaison. As the story unfolds, she elopes with her own brother, and becomes free from the mind control she was subjected to. At the novel's climax, she, having plotted her revenge, confronts the evil doctor; he, overwhelmed with desire for her, attempts to take her by force by once again using the 'vibratoners' which she has rigged to backfire. The novel closes with the doctor being electrocuted, and his tongue bursting into flames while the heroine calmly watches." (Reading note courtesy of Lorne Bair Rare Books, Inc.). Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 C-342. A bright, nearly fine copy. OCLC reports one copy (OSU). (#152993)

        A TRIP TO MARS: AN "AWFUL VENTURE." A CURIOUS MESSAGE. BEING A COPY OF A CIRCULAR ADDRESSED TO THE INHABITANTS OF THIS WORLD, BY MR. H[OMO] V. MUNDO [pseudonym], THE LATE VISITOR TO THE PLANET MARS. Reprinted from the Wellington A1 and New Zealand Tit-Bits. [By] J. M. T., Auckland ..

      Auckland: Wilson and Horton, Printers, 1901.. Octavo, pp. [1-5] 6-49 [50: blank], original red wrappers printed in gold, stapled. Second edition, enlarged, the first to print "A Trip to Mars" (pages [5]-24). The remainder of the book is devoted to "A Song of Auckland and Other Verses." While the story of the trip to Mars is fairly short (20 pages), it is densely packed with ideas and imagination; an early notion of a black hole or something like it, travel through space by explosive atoms and antigravity. Mars is a utopian world. The Martians live by the golden rule and were either without original sin or eradicated it (this is not quite clear). When the astronaut from Earth lands on Mars he is fumigated to kill "sin-germs." The author's premise appears to be that humans have the technology and tools to create a paradise on Earth. Mankind's advance to perfection "would have been infinitely greater if [religion's] advocates and professors had proved unanimously true and faithful to their cause." There is nothing standing in the way of creating a utopian world except mankind's lack of a universal "faithful, heroic, and disinterested religion." "A science fiction story in the style of a newspaper report which describes how the protagonist was launched Verne-wise from a gun into space and, in his spacecraft, arrived on a scientifically advanced Mars, whose achievements include telepathy and easy access by means of airships to their two small moons, which are used as resorts. A piece which compresses more ideas within its small dimensions than do many full-length contemporaries." - Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 210. Like Locke's copy, the front wrapper of this copy states "Second Edition." This refers to prior publication of "A Song of Auckland," not this enlarged edition that adds the author's "A Trip to Mars." Locke, Voyages in Space (2011) V-632. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, Additions. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992), Bleiler (1948; 1978), Tuck, or the Day supplements. Not in Blackford, et. al., Strange Constellations: A History of Australian Science Fiction or Larnach, Materials Towards a Checklist of Australian Fantasy to 1937. Some creasing and soiling to covers, some light scattered foxing to text, else a very good copy. Rare. Among the earliest interplanetary stories published in New Zealand. (#153373)

        [RAILWAY] Map of East China

      Druck, 1901. With a pasted down label of Edward Stanford, London on the map and the slipcase. Map dimensions: 48½" x 57". With original slipcase. Large fold-out map in German, dissected into 16 pieces, each measuring approximately 12" x 14" and backed onto canvas. A detailed map of the East China coast, showing major cities and terrain. At the bottom there is printed reference to material taken from unpublished works of Ferdinand von Richthofen, a German geographer who made detailed topographical maps of China, and was also the uncle of Manfred von Richtofen, the "Red Baron" flying ace. Manuscript lines and annotations added to the map, which indicate the alignment of the recently constructed and proposed railway lines. Stamped "A.J. Barry" on both map and slipcase. Arthur John Barry was Joint Consulting Engineer on many of the Chinese Railway projects of the time including for Chinese Central Railways, Shanghai-Nanking Railway and Canton-Kowloon Railway. The map is a German original, but was sold by Stanford, suggesting that it may have been issued by Stanford at the specific request of Barry, with Stanford buying the sheets from the German publisher, dissecting and backing it onto canvas, and adding the slipcase. Exceptionally scarce, we can find no institutional holding of this Edward Stanford issue.
