        THE PERVERTS

      G. W. Dillingham Company Publishers [1901]., New York - Octavo, pp. [1-5] 6-7 [8-9] 10-388 [389-398: ads], original decorated blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red and white, t.e.g. First edition. "An eccentric novel of ideas written by a Baltimore physician to promote some rather wooly theories about heredity, disease, crime, religion and morality. The focal point of the story is the Newcomber family of three sisters and a brother, headed, after the death of the father, by the ineffectual mother who is dominated by Mizpra, the youngest sister, a scheming and vindictive virago. Another sister, Marcia, is a drunk and dope fiend whose raving in a psychiatric hospital at one point in the story alternates between religious hysteria and blasphemy. The brother, Leigh (homonymous with the author's middle name), is the hero, a medical student and zealous scholar who is being cheated out of his inheritance by Mizpra. These two antagonists have their own internal conflicts to deal with as well. Mizpra is torn between the cunning needed to advance her schemes (mainly, the control of her mother and the family fortune and the lives of her siblings) and her ultimate driving passion, sadism. 'She must witness torture and cause pain. This was her life.' Leigh is a binge alcoholic with a split personality, one sober, the other drunk. But he struggles successfully to understand and subdue this demonic passion, whereas Mizpra is eventually undone by hers. The story moves gradually westward, from Europe to New York to Southern California. Mizpra uses the family fortune to ingratiate herself into charitable and religious establishments wherever she goes, even while she is conducting experiments on animals with poisons in her private laboratories. In Los Angeles she finances the restoration of a ruined mission and turns the chapel into a private torture chamber. But her scheme to ruin her brother by hiring a defrocked Jesuit named Bald to lure him into a scandal in New York backfires, and Bald helps Leigh expose Mizpra in flagrante delicto as she is lashing a young Indian girl in her chapel torture chamber. The final scene has Bald strangling Mizpra as they both fall over a cliff into the abyss, lit up by a flash of lightning. The author traces the perversions of the Newcomber family to the ill-advised mating of their parents when they were too old. Compounding this mistake was their adherence to radical new child-rearing ideas which are partly inspired by the suffragette feminism of the day. Mizpra is unsexed by her education, Leigh coddled and unfitted for business by his. But the author also hates religion. He believes only in Science and would do away with prisons as well as churches, replacing them both with hospitals. However, the calm dispassion of scientific method is little in evidence in this novel, with its frequent (and annoying) intrusion of blistering authorial asides and its occasional (and amusing) flights of rodomontade. Much of the novel's construction is clumsy but many of its details, especially in the scenes of violence, have a vivid particularity that may have been rooted in the author's medical experience. Some of these details must have been shocking for the time and still perhaps can raise an eyebrow: the philanthropic Leigh kicking an assailant in the head after knocking him to the ground; Mizpra putting her gelded husband into a hypnotic trance and sticking his tie pin into his forehead, ear lobes and cheek, whereupon, at the sight of blood, she experiences (if we read between the lines) an orgasm; Marcia having a drunken orgy at the funeral of her little boy and trying to force beer into his mouth; Mizpra removing the body of Christ from a crucifix and substituting the scourged half-naked body of Mary ('It was Her suffering that was so fearful, not his.'), placing the 'thorned flagellum' on the horizontal bar of the cross. This is strong stuff for 1901 and helps make this an unusual and interesting book on several counts. The book is dedicated to Edgar Allan Poe." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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.).

BROWN FRAGILE PAPER, DAMPING STAINS. The Lower Depths (Russian: На дне, Na dne, literally: 'At the bottom') is perhaps Maxim Gorky's best-known play. It was written during the winter of 1901 and the spring of 1902. Subtitled "Scenes from Russian Life," it depicted a group of impoverished Russians living in a shelter near the Volga. Produced by the Moscow Arts Theatre on December 18, 1902, Konstantin Stanislavski directed and starred. It became his first major success, and a hallmark of Russian socialist realism. The characters of The Lower Depths are said to have been inspired by the denizens of the so-called Bugrov Homeless Shelter (Russian: Бугровская ночлежка, Bugrovskaya nochlezhka) in Nizhny Novgorod, which had been built in 1880-83 by the Old Believer grain merchant and philanthropist Nikolai Alexandrovich Bugrov (Russian: Николай Александрович Бугров) (1837--1911) in memory of his father, A.P. Bugrov. When the actors of the Moscow Arts Theatre were preparing the play for its first run in 1902, Maxim Gorky supplied them with photographs of the Nizhny Novgorod underclass taken by the famous local photographer, Maxim Dmitriev (Максим Дмитриев), to help with the realism of the acting and costumes.[1] When it first appeared, The Lower Depths was criticized for its pessimism and ambiguous ethical message. The presentation of the lower classes was viewed as overly dark and unredemptive, and Gorky was clearly more interested in creating memorable characters than in advancing a formal plot. However, in this respect, the play is generally regarded as a masterwork. The theme of harsh truth versus the comforting lie pervades the play from start to finish, as most of the characters choose to deceive themselves from the bleak reality of their condition.

Первоначальные названия -- «Без солнца», «Ночлежка», «Дно», «На дне жизни»[1]. В пьесе, имеющей подзаголовок «Картины», изображена группа обитателей ночлежного дома для неимущих. В январе 1904 года пьеса получила Грибоедовскую премию. Пьеса была разрешена к постановке только в МХТ, где была осуществлена первая постановка с большим успехом 18 декабря 1902 года режиссёрами К. С. Станиславским, который также исполнил одну из центральных ролей (Сатин), и Немировичем-Данченко. К 60-летию первой постановки (18 декабря 1962 года) пьеса прошла во МХАТе 1451 раз[1]. Постановка пьесы на императорской сцене была запрещена. Тем не менее, петербургские актёры приняли участие в двух чтениях пьесы «в лицах» в 1903 году -- в доме Н. П. Карабчевского и в дворянском собрании. До 1905 года постановка пьесы разрешалась с большими купюрами и каждый раз с согласия местных властей. Две противоборствующие стихии -- правда и ложь -- сталкиваются в пьесе лицом к лицу после появления старика Луки, для которого ложь во спасение равносильна «твоя правда, а не ихняя».

        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)

In addition to the rare large paper limited issue of 250 copies signed by Pain, there were two issues of the trade copies, some bound in pictorial yellow cloth and the others bound in pictorial wrappers in shilling shocker format, this being one of the hardbound copies.

        FROM BEHIND THE VEIL ..

      St. Louis: Published for the Author by Christian Publishing Company, [1901].. Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v-xiv 15-419 [420: blank], original maroon cloth, front panel stamped in gold and blind, spine panel stamped in gold, rear panel stamped in blind. First edition? "Lost race novel set in pre-Columbian Central America among the Chichimecs and Toltecs. The former are postulated to be survivors of Atlantis. Oddly enough, all the characters in the novel have English names (Winnie, Edmond, Oscar, Stonewall, etc.); and they speak and act like characters in a Victorian society romance. The heroine has not two but three rivals. This story is spliced together with a rather opaque adventure story about conflict between the Chichimecs and the Toltecs. The most overtly fantastic feature of the book relates to a lake high up in the mountains, whose depths conceal a strange monster generated from the slain bodies and reincarnated souls of vanquished Chichimecs warriors, ingloriously dumped into the lake by their enemies, the evil Toltecs. The natives have a fear of the lake and avoid it. Once every century, the monster rises and frolics in the sunshine for a period of time, then returns quietly to its Stygian prison. The story is told within a double frame narrative: American campers discover a cave in which are found the remains of a Spanish priest who translated the story from the Toltec language into Spanish, which manuscript is then translated by the campers into English. The priest states that the original story was composed in 1005 A.D. Why 11th century Toltecs (or Chichimecs) would compose a Victorian novel, complete with English names and English mores, is nowhere explained. Perhaps these ex-Atlanteans were time travelers. Imagining so would help relieve what is otherwise an extremely dull (though rare) book." - Robert Eldridge. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Not in Eichner, Atlantean Chronicles. The Stuart Teitler Collection of Lost Race Fiction, p. 8 (recording this edition). Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 A-323 (recording a Salem, Mo. edition of 1901). Some damp staining to cloth and edges of text block, lower right corners bruised, a good, sound copy of an uncommon book. (#149485)

        THYRA: A ROMANCE OF THE POLAR PIT

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1901.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-258 [259: blank] [260-263: ads] [264: blank], fly leaves at front and rear, seven inserted plates, five with illustrations by E. L. Blumenschein and two plans, original decorated light blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. This binding is considered by some bibliographers to be a secondary binding (following copies in dark blue cloth stamped in gilt) although there is no evidence to substantiate this assignation. The most important point is that the full compliment of seven inserted plates is present, as here, since later issues (printings?) lack some or all of them. A well-known lost race novel, regarded by many to be a minor classic of the genre. A quartet of explorers in a hot-air balloon drift and crash in an unexplored part of the Arctic, where they find, in a sort of hollow earth, a Norse colony, a pit with fantastic creatures, a ghoulish system of human sacrifice, and adventures aplenty. The story also involves what one could call a lost-race-within-a-lost-race. An excellent recreation of the Nordic zeitgeist. "Bennet's description of an expedition's thrust northward from Franz Joseph Land in 1896 provided one of the most realistic passages in the genre ... THYRA pictured the full horror of Arctic exploration." - Clareson, The Emergence of American Science Fiction: 1880-1915, pp. 146-47. "One of the better early lost-race novels." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 171. Angenot and Khouri, "An International Bibliography of Prehistoric Fiction," SFS, VIII (March 1981), 41.

        UNDER THE ROOF OF BLUE IONIAN WEATHER - Alma-Tadema, 1901.

      UNDER THE ROOF OF BLUE IONIAN WEATHERHeliogravure uit 1901 uitgegeven door Arthur Tooth & Sons. naar het gelijknamige schilderij (Opus CCCLXIII) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 35 x 82,5 cm.Aristocratische meisjes en hun mannelijke begeleider luisteren naar een fluitist. Inspiratie voor de titel van het werk vond Alma-Tadema in een brief van de beroemde Engelse dichter Percy Bysshe Shelley: ?We watched the ocean and sky together, under the roof of blue Italian weather?. Shelley (1792 - 1822) gold als idool voor de groep Victoriaanse en Pre-Rapha?litische kunstenaars.Een kunstrecensent zei na het gereedkomen van het schilderij: ?Its colour is so equisite and dainty; its composition and arrangement so consummately learned, whether as to perspective, linear and aerial, tone and atmosphere, and reflected lights; and the drawings of the figures and the painting of the flesh so admirable that this picture may be pronounced in some qualities superior to, or more attractive than anything the master has produced before.?Prijs: ? 3.150,- (incl. lijst).

        MARK CHESTER: OR A MILL AND A MILLION: A TALE OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ..

      Boston: Banner of Light Publishing Co., [1901].. Octavo, pp. [1-3] 4-196, original brown cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. Novel set in Southern California (Redondo Beach) at the turn of the last millennium, Horatio Algerish in plot, occult in mood, utopian in sentiment and purpose. The story follows the crisscrossing fortunes of the hero, Mark Chester, a penniless but virtuous Englishman who has just arrived in Redondo, and a seemingly identical twin, Marcus Chesterfield, a dissolute millionaire staying at the hotel. Two beautiful local girls of opposite temperaments drive the romantic subplots forward. Isabel Morton, a gentle blonde, is pushed by her respectable but ambitious mother into the arms of the millionaire, but she loves him not and resists the pressure. Jane Erie, a willful brunette from the other side of the tracks (her mother, perfecting the contrast, is a milquetoast), has set her sights on the millionaire and eventually marries him. Jane is by far the most interesting character in what is otherwise a tendentious melodrama: an übermensch and apostle of Will who is treated with surprising sympathy by the author. She has acquired the power of astral travel and appears as a spectre before Mrs. Morton to prove her dominance. Mark also has an astral dream in which he discovers nearby mines that give him the capital to build a utopian community: 100 identical cottages for 100 families who will work on a nearby farm. This is the start of a national movement that spreads across the country, 'and at last in this way there were no more tramps -- no more hungry men, women and children ... The old-time millionaire will cease to be, and monopolies will be, at length, driven to the wall.' The author wrote several other utopian/occult fantasies under his own name and the pseudonym 'Ernst von Himmel.'. Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 P-282. Baird and Greenwood, An Annotated Bibliography of California Fiction 1664-1970 2005. A bright, nearly fine copy. An uncommon book. (#152077)
