Some browning to endpapers, browning to spines. Bookplate to front pastedowns. Percy Bysshe Shelley 4 August 1792 - 8 July 1822) was one of the major English Romantic poets, and is regarded by some as among the finest lyric poets in the English language, and one of the most influential. A radical in his poetry as well as in his political and social views, Shelley did not see fame during his lifetime, but recognition for his poetry grew steadily following his death. Shelley was a key member of a close circle of visionary poets and writers that included Lord Byron, Leigh Hunt, Thomas Love Peacock, and his own second wife, Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein. Shelley is perhaps best known for classic poems such as Ozymandias, Ode to the West Wind, To a Skylark, Music, When Soft Voices Die, The Cloud and The Masque of Anarchy. His other major works include a groundbreaking verse drama The Cenci (1819) and long, visionary poems such as Queen Mab (later reworked as The Daemon of the World), Alastor, The Revolt of Islam, Adonaïs, Prometheus Unbound (1820)- widely considered to be his masterpiece¿Hellas: A Lyrical Drama (1821), and his final, unfinished work, The Triumph of Life (1822). Shelley's close circle of friends included some of the most important progressive thinkers of the day, including his father-in-law, the philosopher William Godwin, and Leigh Hunt.

        Extraordinary signed Letter By Tolstoy on war and Religion

      - An extraordinary five-page letter signed by Leo Tolstoy, 'Leon Tolstoy', in French, October 23rd 1901. The author addresses his letter to 'Mon Prince' (the former Persian ambassador to St. Petersburg, Prince Mirza Reza Khan Arfa) and begins by thanking his correspondent for sending him a poem. He then reflects on the views of one of the poem’s characters, adding 'that the roots of evil are egoism and ignorance'. Tolstoy then expounds on this idea with a summation of his personal beliefs, in part (translated): 'The most important ignorance is ignorance of the "true religion" within the reach of all men, founded upon reason, common to all peoples and therefore imperative for all. The principle of this religion is expressed in the Gospel by these words: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". Tolstoy opposes his correspondent’s view that a sense of brotherhood is possible between states and their heads, insisting that true brotherhood would render obsolete all distinctions of authority, 'All should obey God and not man'. He continues by declaring that war, perpetuated by self-interested governments, would be abolished by the 'true religion' which would make murder and military service impossible: 'Wars can only be abolished by the individuals who are their victims. They will only be abolished when the true religion will be so widespread that the majority of men will be ready to suffer violence rather to use it.' Tolstoy concludes by explaining that he is ill and bedridden, thus unable to write in his own hand. In fine condition, with small splits along intersecting folds and small mounting remnants at corners. The great Russian author of War and Peace was excommunicated from the Russian Orthodox Church the very year this letter was written. Tolstoy converted to Christianity at the time of his fiftieth birthday, and developed his theological philosophy of Christian anarchism by deviating from traditional doctrine and through strict study of the ministry of Jesus, in particular the Sermon on the Mount. Tolstoy’s "true religion" defied the role of authority and superstition, proclaiming that connection to the universe and to God was only capable through an independent search for truth.

        The Lama

      [Australia? United Kingdom? : artist unknown : between 1901 and 1910]. Carving from teak wood (Tectona grandis) in high relief, 580 x 340 x 40 mm, set in its fully contemporary oak frame, 680 x 440 mm; the carving is unsigned, and the back of the frame is also sans label or inscription; the work is in fine original state, and appears to have never been removed from the frame. This impressive relief wood carving by an anonymous but highly proficient artist is an accurate contemporary copy of one of the suite of ten low-relief terra-cotta plaques modelled by Rudyard Kipling's father, John Lockwood Kipling, which were used as the photographic plate illustrations in the first American and first English book editions of Kipling's novel Kim. The first American book edition was published in New York City by Doubleday, Page & Company on 1 October 1901; the first English book edition quickly followed, published in London by Macmillan and Co. on 17 October 1901. Lockwood Kipling's illustrations continued to be used in numerous successive editions on both sides of the Atlantic. Kim was hugely successful and has, over time, cemented its place as one of the most popular works of fiction in the English language. The novel is set during the 1890s, prior to the Third Afghan War, against the backdrop of The Great Game - the political conflict between Russia and Britain in Central Asia. Yorkshire-born artist and teacher John Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911), an influential figure in the Arts and Crafts movement, spent most of his career in India. He first arrived there in 1865 to take up his position as professor of architectural sculpture in the Jeejeebhoy School of Art in Bombay. His son Rudyard was born in Bombay in December 1865. In 1875 Kipling was appointed the Principal of Mayo School of Arts, Lahore, British India and also became curator of the old Lahore Museum, the institution on which the Wonder House, or Ajaib Ghar, is based in Kim. He retired back to England in 1893. Lockwood Kipling provided the illustrations for many of Rudyard Kipling's books, including his two most famous works, The Jungle Book and Kim, as well as for Flora Annie Steel's Tales of the Punjab. He is known for his architectural decorations for the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and friezes on the Crawford Market in Bombay. Kipling also designed the uniforms and decorations used in the Imperial Assemblage at Delhi in 1877, at which Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress of India. While there can be little doubt that the present work was created by an admirer of both Rudyard Kipling and Lockwood Kipling, we can only speculate as to whether the carver was closely associated with either the writer or the artist. The carving was sourced in Australia, a country where Rudyard Kipling's work was extremely popular and which he had visited in 1891; while Lockwood Kipling had provided a carved showcase for the Melbourne Exhibition in 1879, and had himself visited Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide in 1892, around the time of the publication of his book Beast and Man in India. There is therefore some likelihood of the carving having been made by an Australian artist, possibly someone who had met one or even both of the Kiplings. More remote possibilities are that the artist was a member of Lockwood Kipling's circle in England, or one of the many Indian pupils whom he had trained as craftsmen. The absence of a firm attribution notwithstanding, this superb recreation in wood of The Lama is an important testament to the type of adulation and veneration that Rudyard Kipling and his works attracted across the Empire, and indeed the world, in this period. Kipling was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. Provenance: Private collection, Melbourne

        An archive of photographs of Hong Kong and Canton taken by a crew member of USAT Hancock, 1901.

      [Hong Kong and Canton, April 1901]. Group of 67 silver gelatin photographs taken by an anonymous photographer with a private camera, all in format 95 x 115 mm, mounted recto and verso of [19] loose leaves from an album of the period, all with the photographer's handwritten captions in ink beneath the image; 63 of the photographs, taken in April 1901, show views and scenes in Hong Kong (approximately 50) and Canton, including streetscapes, harbour and river scenes, prominent buildings and geographical features, temples, an execution ground, examination cells, a dinner hosted by the officers of the Fürst Bismarck, and army personnel, nursing sisters and civilians on board USAT Hancock; a further 2 photographs show the Hancock on her return voyage to America at Nagasaki (May 1901) and San Francisco (June 1901), and 2 photographs show nursing sisters on board the USAT Sheridan in November 1900; all of the photographs are in very good condition; a few of the album pages have some mild foxing or toning, but are otherwise clean and sound. A unique visual record of Hong Kong and Canton at the opening of the twentieth century, taken with a private camera by an American visitor. Both the USAT Hancock (formerly SS Arizona) and USAT Sheridan (formerly SS Massachusetts) were fitted out as troop ships by the US army in 1898 and used as transports during the Spanish-American War, carrying soldiers and nursing staff between San Francisco and Manila. The present photographs were most likely taken by one of her crew on the Hancock's final return voyage to the States from the Philippines.

        The Book of Jade

      New York: Doxey's. New York, Doxey's, 1901. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. 436/600 Copies. A very nice copy of an uncommon book, one of only 600 copies printed by William Doxey who was on the verge of bankruptcy at the time. The book has been popular with readers of horror and the supernatural for a century, due in large to the horrific descriptions of death. The book is near fine with some bumping to the spine tips, a little rubbing and a tight split to the front hinge. Barnitz, who had the book published anonymously, died shortly after its publication of a reported 'enlarged heart' though some suspect suicide. A masterpiece of decadant poetry. [6459, Hyraxia Books]. . Near Fine. Hardback. 1st Edition. 1901.

        Les Poëtes Chansonniers Montmartrois.

      [Paris, 1901?] 20” by 15”, matted and framed. An intriguing and quite charming painting of a cafe scene in Belle Époque Paris. Research has failed to yield anything about the artist, although he has signed his name (Gaston Dumoniel?), dated his work 1901, and even given the precise name and address of the cafe. Le Grand Manège at 4 Rue Buffault, Faubourg Montmartre, was once popular with early bicyclists (although no one present here appears dressed for the sport) and was positively reviewed in La Bicyclette of April 13, 1894.

        Manuscrit d'un long article de Clemenceau sur la visite du Tsar Nicolas II.

      - 1 manuscrit autographe 9 In-4 26/09/1901 Nombreuses ratures et corrections. bon Manuscrit d'un article de Clemenceau paru dans la Dépêche [de Toulouse, le 26 septembre 1901 (coupure jointe)], intitulé : Les Nationalistes et "l'Alliance", sur la visite du Tsar à Compiègne et la complicité des monarchistes et nationalistes français avec la Russie impériale. Clemenceau évoque avec dérision les fêtes de Compiègne, et espère qu'un jour on recevra un potentat en "noble simplicité républicaine". Cependant la visite du Tsar a des répercussions sur la politique intérieure, déjà troublée par l'agitation monarchiste : l'ancien ambassadeur russe, M. de Mohrenheim, a encouragé cette agitation ; et Clemenceau blâme les nationalistes d'avoir rejeté le ministre de la Guerre, le général André, qui ne se prêtait pas aux entreprises antirépublicaines. Il raille deux «chefs d'emploi» de la droite : le cardinal Langénieux, et M. Dausset, président du conseil municipal de Paris, suppôts des congrégations romaines. Or «toutes ces tentatives de s'approprier Nicolas II pour en faire un instrument de combat contre le gouvernement républicain, sont autant de traits d'une suspension d'armes généreusement consentie, sous le nom de "Trêve du Tsar" par la troupe de la monarchie. Ce qui a particulièrement caractérisé cet "armistice imposé par le patriotisme devant l'étranger", c'est que jamais les ministres républicains n'ont reçu tant d'injures», notamment le général André, traité de "canaille" lors d'un banquet officiel. Clemenceau s'amuse de constater que depuis qu'ils ont renoncé à «l'espoir de faire de Nicolas II un outil de restauration monarchique en France, quelques-uns de nos cléricaux les plus caractérisés ont vu se refroidir outre mesure leur enthousiasme d'antan pour l'alliance franco-russe [.]».

        Songs of the Hill Winds: a book of Lyrics and other Verse which have appeared in the Undergraduate Publications of Dartmouth College

      Kendall Banning, The Cheltenham Press 1901 - Number 432 of a limited edition of 500 copies. This copy is SIGNED twice by Kendall Banning, once on the recto of the front free endpaper (dated Aug. 27, 1937) and once on a note pasted to the front pastedown, dated July 20, 1938. The typed note explains the (non-) role of Moses Bradstreet Perkins (listed as a co-editor on the title page). Full leather-covered boards (or stiff card covers), blindstamped front board, 6 3/4 x 4 3/8 inches, top edge gilt, 94 pp. The leather is dry and shows considerable chipping at the edges, and there is a previous repair of the spine with dark brown tape; inscription in pencil by a previous owner on the recto of the front free endpaper, dated December 25, 1901; a small image of Richard Hovey pasted to the verso of the front free endpaper (Hovey contributed the first piece in the text of the book, "Men of Darmouth"). Otherwise, pages clean and binding intact. Scarce, especially signed. Lee Michaelides: "Kendall Banning is one of Dartmouth’s most prolific, versatile and all-but-forgotten men of letters. Best known on campus as the editor of Songs of the Hill Winds, a book of Dartmouth verse, he also wrote plays, histories of America’s military academies and a fake 1784 cookbook—all in his spare time. By day Banning edited several well-read magazines, including Popular Radio, Judge, Cosmopolitan (when it ran serious pieces of journalism) and Snappy Stories (a pulp mag for men). Danielle Sigler ’96, a curator at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, recently rediscovered one of Banning’s more interesting works, Censored Mother Goose Rhymes, a 1929 self-published collection of the well-known nursery rhymes. The slim volume packs a powerful—and amusing—punch with its anti-censorship message. Banning placed black bars over certain words in the rhymes, leaving much to the reader’s imagination and humorously demonstrating how censors “have taught us how to read naughty meanings into harmless words,” as he wrote in his dedication. Banning understood the uses of censorship. In 1926 he’d written The Military Censorship of Pictures, a volume that documented the “crucial” censorship of WW I photos. Conversely, he complained in his class’ 1927 annual report that as an editor he “waged almost constant warfare with professional reformers, censors, prohibitionists, fundamentalists and other groups of busybodies [who] seek to enforce their own particular brand of idiosyncrasy or doctrine upon the rest of us mortals in general and upon editors and publishers in particular—presumably on the assumption that the press, being influential in molding public opinion, should be muzzled and forced to conform to the pet theories of the particular group that starts the trouble.” Most bothersome to Banning was a campaign to have Snappy Stories banned in Massachusetts. “It may interest members of our class to know that the Boston fight started when we refused to recognize the mandate of the Watch and Ward Society to keep out of New England an issue of Snappy Stories that contained an excellent short tale by our classmate Charlie Goddard,” he wrote. Banning’s Mother Goose became a curiosity in the history of censorship because he sent it to Congress in 1929 as part of a lobbying effort against an anti-smut provision in the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act. “These rhymes have given pleasure to generations,” Banning wrote on the book’s last page, “and this version makes a new claim as amusing nonsense. But even more important than jingle or nonsense is the clear demonstration made here of the effect of censorship upon anything it touches.” Although history is silent as to Mother Goose’s impact on the legislation, the tariff bill passed in 1930 with an amended censorship provision that wasn’t nearly as strident as what bill sponsor Sen. Reed Smoot had wanted.” (1722RO090) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Mark Twain Autographed Letter Signed.

      Mark Twain Autographed letter signed. It reads, "Ampersand" [Harrietstown, NY] , 27 August [1901] My dear Mr. West I thank you very sincerely. But reflect: if you & the 1207 others who wrote me, had said the same things in their local press, (no signature required) think of the hundreds & thousands of converts that vast wave of mere honest simple confession[s] of faith would have made! And how it would have upheld my hands--& what authority it would have given to my mouth! Whereas I got only kicks & never had a friend--apparently. I was sure I had friends somewhere; & if I had had the wit to suggest the above course I believe they would have been prompt to show up & stand by me. It was my own fault that in my hands the cause didn't fare better. Sincerely yours SL Clemens." Double matted and framed opposite a photograph of Twain. The entire piece measures 16 inches by 18 inches. In the summer of 1901, Twain rented a cottage on Lake Saranac in Harrietstown, NY, where he vacationed with his wife and daughters. During his stay, Twain wrote a novella, A Double-Barrelled Detective Story, published in 1902, and an essay, "The United States of Lyncherdom," which was not published until after his death and which captures his reaction to an article about a Lynching that had taken place in Missouri that summer, on August 19.

        The Writings & Speeches of Edmund Burke. In Twelve Volumes.

      Boston. Little, Brown and Company. 1901.. Hardcover. Book 8vo, 22.5cm, complete in 12 volumes, (over 6,000pp.), with 12 photogravure frontis plates, 29 gravure portrait plates, captioned tissue guards, index, title pages printed in black and red, in contemporary half crushed crimson morocco, blind ruled raised bands, ornate gilt flora & vine decorations in the panels, gilt titles, matched marbled boards and endpapers, t.e.g., a fine bright set, attractively bound (s20) Burke, Edmund (1729-97), political writer. Born in Dublin, he was educated at Trinity College and studied law in London. He was private secretary to the chief secretary for Ireland, William Gerard Hamilton, 1764, and from 1765 private secretary to Lord Rockingham. Elected to the British parliament in 1765, he emerged as a leading orator and theorist of the new reformist Whig Party. He attacked George III's personal government, called for conciliatory treatment of the American colonists, introduced an economical reform bill (1780) to reduce official corruption, and led the attack on Warren Hastings's abuse of power in India. Following the French Revolution, however, Burke became a defender of the existing order against what he saw as a destructive quest for abstract liberty, publishing Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790) and breaking with his Whig colleague Charles James Fox. "Burke's mother was a Catholic of the Co. Cork Nagle family and he was shaken when Nagle relatives were caught up in the show trials of prominent Catholics, provoked by the Whiteboy movement. He was partly educated as a Catholic school in Co. Cork, his wife was an Irish Catholic, and his lawyer father may have been a convert. Yet opinion is divided between those who see this background as shaping his whole political outlook and those who see the mature Burke primarily as a metropolitan reformer. His open advocacy of free trade for Ireland cost him his Bristol constituency in 1780. On the other hand he was cool towards legislative independence, which he saw as strengthening an intolerant Protestant elite. In the 1790s, notably in his Letter to Sir Hercules Langrishe (1792), he advocated Catholic relief as the only means to prevent revolution in Ireland." - (Oxford Campanion Irish History) Vol. I: A Vindication of Natural Society, On the Sublime and Beautiful, Present State of the Nation, etc. Vol. 2: On Conciliation with America, Security if the Independence of Parliament, On Mr. Fox's East India Bill, etc. Vol. 3: On the Nabob of Arcot's Debts, Speech on the Army Estimates, Reflections on the Revolution in France. Vol. 4: Letter to a Member of the National Assembly, Appeal from the New to the Old Whigs, Policy of the Allies with Respect to France, etc. Vol. 5: Observations on the Conduct of the Minority, Thoughts and Details on Scarcity, Three Letters to a Member of Parliament, etc. Vol. 6: Fourth Letter on the Proposals for Peace, To Charles James Fox on the American War, The Measures in the American Contest, etc. Vol. 7: Speeches in Parliament, Abridgment of English History. Vol. 8: Reports on the Affairs of India, Articles of Charge of High Crimes and Misdemeanors against Warren Hastings.

Renowned weavers, they taught their skills to local women and are remembered at two shrines in Ikeda, Osaka. The signature on this woodblock illustration reads Rōsai 桜斎 which was an alternate name used by Ogata Gekkō. The style of the picture matches Gekko's, and he was active as a kuchi-e artist.

        Сказка об Иване-царевиче, жар-птице и о сером волке [Le Tzarewitch Ivan - L'oiseau de feu et le loup gris]

      First edition and first edition of 8 illustrations including 3 full page Ivan Bilibine.Nice and rare copy in this condition.Ivan Yakovlevich Bilibin (Иван Яковлевич Билибин 1876-1942) is a painter and illustrator from St. Petersburg. Student of the painter Repine, he studied the arts and worked for two years alongside him before traveling to Europe. On his return to Russia, he co-founded with Leon Bakst the group Mir Iskousstva (Мир Искусства "The World of Art"), a collective that promotes meetings between artists and men of letters. From then on, he throws himself into the artistic enterprise of his life, illustrating traditional Russian tales, thus creating the "Bilibine style" that will characterize all the work of his career. Anxious to implement the appropriate graphic processes, he carries out extensive reseArches paper, collects the louboks (Лубок Russian popular images) and is enthusiastic about the ornamental miniatures and the brightness of the icons colors characteristic of the 17th century Russian. He also draws inspiration from embroidery and printed fabrics. Nevertheless, Bilibin is not limited to Russian folk culture; rich of his expeditions in Europe but also in the East (he lived in particular several years in Egypt), he likes to mix Russian and Oriental motifs, thus wishing to create a new language: the graphic language. The modernity of his style allows him to meet very soon an immense success and to answer to many requests for illustrations, that it is about tales and bylines (былины epic tales of oral tradition) but also of works in the theatrical field (sets and costumes). Bilibine brings as much care to the "decorations" of his works (vignettes, cartridges, frames) as to watercolors finely highlighted with a black line and enhanced with gold.

        Topographie des weiblichen Ureters mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der pathologischen Zustände und der gynäkologischen Operationen.

      Wien & Leipzig, Wilhelm Braumüller, Leipzig 1901, Folio, 78 pp., mit 32 farblith. Tafeln, Halblederband mit orig. geprägten Deckelbezügen feines Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe - Entklammert und neu aufgebuden feines Exemplar ! "1901 erschien bei Wilhelm Braumüller in Wien der Atlas über die "Topographie des weiblichen Ureters mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der pathologischen Zustände und der gynäkologischen Operationen", von Tandler und Josef Halban (1870-1937), der 1903 zum Dozent für Gynäkologie ernannt wurde. Auf 32 lithographischen Tafeln mit kurzem Text werden alle topographischen Beziehungen dargestellt, die für den gynäkologischen Operateur wichtig sind. Verschiedene Operationsmethoden, vor allem die vaginalen sind festgehalten pathologische Zustände der weiblichen Beckenorgane wurden durch Bilder dem Verständnis näher gebracht. Die Präparate, in natürlicher Größe abgebildet, sind teilweise durch IVoige Chromsäure fixiert worden, in anderen Fällen durch ein Gemisch von Formol, Alkohol und Glycerin. Die Bedeutung des Werkes liegt darin - und hier findet sich eine Ansicht Tandlers nicht nur vorgebildet, sondern schon ausgeprägt -, daß die Anatomie die Gynäkologie befruchten kann." Der Wunsch nach naturgetreuen Abbildungen entspricht den praktischen Bedürfnissen des gynäkologischen Operateurs, heißt es im Vorwort. Die normale Anatomie wurde nicht mit einbezogen, da Zuckerkandl gerade ein einschlägiges Werk vorbereitete. Nur die pathologischen Zustände und operativen Eingriffe wurden dargestellt. Die Bilder zeigen den Einfluß der pathologischen Zustände auf die Topographie des Ureters. Die Topik des Ureters wird in den einzelnen Phasen der wichtigsten Operationen festgehalten. Die Bilder - der Künstler war B. Keilitz - wurden nach dem frischen Objekt in natürlicher Größe gezeichnet, mit möglichster Beibehaltung der topographischen Verhältnisse. Die Rezensionen überboten sich: "Nach wissenschaftlichem Inhalte und Ausstattung einfach ein Prachtwerk ersten Ranges", schrieb Gustav Klein (1862-1920, Leiter der Universitätsbibliothek München) in der "Münchner Medizinischen Wochenschrift" (92), der Operateur findet sofort alles in klarster Weise im "Tandler und Halban". Das Buch wurde zum Begriff. Man sollte es "neben dem Operationszimmer" aufbewahren, um es bei schwierigen Fällen stets zur Hand zu haben. Der Rezensent schloß sich den Worten Zuckerkandis an, daß bald ähnliche Werke für andere Organe geschrieben werden mögen. ...

        Typed Letter Signed ("Booker T. Washington, Principal") to Mrs. Romaine Wade, declining her request to help find domestic servants, and expressing a preference that his graduates stay in the "Southland"

      Tuskegee 1901 - 1 page. Oblong 8vo. Washington replies to a Mrs. Wade in Santa Barbara, California, who had evidently sought help finding domestic servants: "Referring to your letter which has just been received, I am very sorry to say that I am unable to assist you in the matter of securing such domestics as you desire. Although we have a great many young women taking our course in domestic science, none of them seem disposed to leave the school at this time in the term to take up work in other directions. However, we rather urgue upon our graduates to remain in the South after completing their course as we believe the Southland offers greater opportunities for their usefulness among their own people."

        The blessed damozel.

      [colophon: Portland, Maine: Thomas B. Mosher, 1901]. 4to (14.7 cm; 5.75"). [2], frontis., xiii, [1], 32, [2] pp. First variorum edition of Rossetti's poem, here with a photogravure frontispiece after the author's 1874 portrait of Alexa Wilding for Lord Mount-Temple. The text is here printed as it first appeared in the February 1850 issue of The Germ with, neatly printed below, the variants present in the 1856 Oxford and Cambridge Magazine, the 1870 Poems, and the 1886 Collected Works. Mosher printed two other editions in 1902 and 1905.    Bishop notes the decorative similarities between this edition and that of Hacon & Ricketts in 1900, including the "same alternating black and red Ricketts initials and text, the same red rules as the two-page openings of the book following the half-titles, and the same red Roman numerals of each stanza," although Mosher here opts for smaller type, a larger page, and different dingbats, with his printer's device prominently displayed on the title-leaf verso.    => Of the ten copies printed on pure Roman vellum, this offering is number two and signed by Mosher.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         Hatch, Mosher, 184; Bishop, Mosher, 47. Vellum-cased boards with green silk accents, spine modestly lettered in gilt; very lightly dust-soiled and spotted, outer green silk uniformly faded, ties appearing to have been trimmed off at edges. Interior creamy and clean. => A textually interesting work and a spectacular example of an unusual printing method from an American press.

        The blessed damozel.

      Thomas B. Mosher, 1901. First variorum edition of Rossetti's poem, here with a photogravure frontispiece after the author's 1874 portrait of Alexa Wilding for Lord Mount-Temple. The text is here printed as it first appeared in the February 1850 issue of The Germ with, neatly printed below, the variants present in the 1856 Oxford and Cambridge Magazine, the 1870 Poems, and the 1886 Collected Works. Mosher printed two other editions in 1902 and 1905. Bishop notes the decorative similarities between this edition and that of Hacon & Ricketts in 1900, including the "same alternating black and red Ricketts initials and text, the same red rules as the two-page openings of the book following the half-titles, and the same red Roman numerals of each stanza," although Mosher here opts for smaller type, a larger page, and different dingbats, with his printer's device prominently displayed on the title-leaf verso. => Of the ten copies printed on pure Roman vellum, this offering is number two and signed by Mosher. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

        To the South Polar Regions; Expedition of 1898-1900

      London: Hurst & Blackett, 1901. Octavo, title printed in red and black, 73 plates and illustrations (mostly photographic by the author, one folding), two large folding maps (one printed in colours), 4 pp. of advertisements at end; publisher's red "Colonial issue" cloth. First edition of this participant's account of the Antarctic cruise of the Southern Cross under the leadership of C.E. Borchgrevink. This was the first expedition to winter in the Antarctic. In 1884, Belgian-born Bernacchi had arrived in Tasmania with his family, aged eight; he was naturalised in 1886. Bernacchi joined the Southern Cross expedition as physicist and astronomer and became the first Australian to work and winter in Antarctica. In 1900 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and was awarded the Society's Peek Grant. In 1901-4 he served as physicist with Scott's first Antarctic Expedition. "Bernacchi's account is a gem in the Antarctic literature... To him we are indebted for many beautiful literary images of the voyage. Bernacchi was only twenty-six at the time of publication but had an unmistakable writing ability, amply confirmed in his subsequent literary output; the work is attractively illustrated with photographs taken by the author" (Rosove). Provenance: Private collection (Australia).
