Beatrix Potter
London: Warne & Co. The Tale of Peter Rabbit, 1902, first trade edition "wept big tears" in very good condition with no inscriptions. The Tale of Peter Rabbit - First trade edition 1902 - among the earliest issues, with first-state text and earliest endpapers - of Potter's first book, one of the most popular of not only her but also all children's tales with 30 charming illustrations. In 1893, young Beatrix Potter, on holiday in Scotland, composed a letter to cheer up Noel, the child of her former governess, who was suffering from fever. "My dear Noel," she began, "I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits, whose names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter..." The Tale of Peter Rabbit was born. Undaunted by multiple publishers rejections, Potter published the first two private editions of Peter Rabbit at her own expense, both editions totalling only 450 copies - which immediately sold out: the earlier black-and-white drawings were then replaced by full-colour illustrations and the famous prancing image of Peter mounted on the front cover. "There are no recognisable differences between the first three printings, except that green boards were introduced after the first printing" (Linder, 421). The Tale of Peter Rabbit 1902, Warne & Co., Beatrix Potter. The rare first trade edition with "wept big tears" on page 51. This was later changed to "shed big tears" in later copies. Sextodecimo (14 x 10cm), 97pp. Illustrated with 30 colour plates. Dark grey covered boards with illustration of Peter Rabbit to the front cover.

Ein Unikat. - Dieser überaus seltene Holzschnitt Kirchners, von dem nur einige Probeabzüge existieren, entstand als Illustration zu einer Erzählung mit dem Titel "Pére Perdrix" (1902) von Charles-Louis Philippe. Ein Abdruck zu dieser Erzählung kam nicht zustande. Der Holzschnitt zeigt die Titelfigur der Erzählung, einen erblindeten Schmied, mit dunkler Brille und Stock auf einer niedrigen Bank sitzend, wie er zu Beginn der Erzählung geschildert wird. - Tiefschwarzer, differenzierter Druck vor Reduzierung des Stockes. - Dube 930, Zustand I (von 2). Schiefler, Bd. II, S. 225 (mit Abbildung als Vignette). - Postkarte an den Kunsthistoriker Curt Glaser in Berlin, aus der Frühzeit ihrer Bekanntschaft: "Sehr geehrter Herr Professor, ich würde mit Vergnügen Ihnen für die Neuauflage Ihres Buches den Stock dieses Holzschnittes zur verfügung stellen. Wenn Sie wollen, könnten Sie ihn als Vignette irgendwo am Kapitelanfang drucken. Betreffs der anderen Abbildungen bin ich dabei, 3 andere Blätter zu photographieren, die wird Ihnen Westheimer mit den neuen Bedingungen zusenden. Den Holzschnittakt möchte ich wegen seiner schwachen Umsetzung ungern senden. Aber wenn Sie eine gute Abbildung wollen, könnte ich eine der Landschaften dazu geben. Ich halte diese Landschaften nicht für so besonders trefflich. Ich habe bessere Holzschnitte gemacht, auch ist der Akt die einzige wirklich gute Abbildung [...] Ich schreibe Ihnen noch darüber.

1902. [NEW YORK HISTORY, RYE NEW YORK, EDWARDIAN ERA GUESTBOOKS, COASTAL RESORTS] On offer here is a unique and interesting ORIGINAL, SIGNED GUESTBOOK FROM A RESORT ON MANURSING ISLAND IN RYE, NEW YORK. The guestbook is clearly from a manor house or resort on Manursing Island. The dates in totality range between the years 1902 - 1944. 1902 - 1904 visitors seem to attend with some regularity. 1917 - 1921 is somewhat less attended. More activity in 1922 - 1924. (no activity in the 1930's) then 6 pages of names and activity between 1941 - 1944. The 8.0 in X 10.5 in guestbook has about 75 or so leaves (~ 150 pages) of which about 26 of which have names and dated inscriptions. The leather cover is quite worn and the spine has flaked away, but the gilt edged volume is quite serviceable. (we'd recommend the new owner have a custom clamshell box made for storage / display and future protection) The lined and columned pages have spaces for 'Name', 'Residence', 'Arrival', 'Departure', & 'Remarks'. In addition the list of who's who in NYC, Connecticut, & Rhode Island society, there are witty comments and mentions in the 'Remarks' space at times joined by a sketch or doodle. (see images) Of particular interest are the names associated with the history of Manursing Island, specifically those related to the Van Rensselaer Family. A list of a few names we picked out from the name column (just from the 1902 - 04 years): Kilian Van Rensselaer Jr. Charles Christopher Trowbridge William Stephen Van Rensselaer Sarah Erving King David Reynolds Preston Watson William Sabine Jr. Justine Townsend … [Click Below for Full Description]

Format 27 x 18 cm. Tirage sur papier vélin ordinaire (il ne semble pas qu'il y ait eu de tirage sur papier de luxe). Papier légèrement teinté. Quelques légères usures en bordure des couverture, sinon bel état tel que paru pour cette publication très fragile. La planche 3 pour "les verveines" de la livraison 3 est la même que celle de "la mauve" (fascicule 1 planche 3), il s'agit donc d'une erreur de placement au moment de la vente.

Wister, Owen.
1902. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1902. 8vo, xiii, 504, (6, ads) pp. With 8 black and white illustrations by Arthur I. Keller. Original beige cloth titled in red and gilt and with design of holstered pistol intertwined with a lariat. Cloth slightly toned, backstrip with minor wear to foot and with decoration dulled, short (1cm) closed tear to half title, very good. A sound copy in a custom slipcase. § First edition of the seminal Western novel with ALS by the author laid in. The letter is written in French to Mr. R. D. Coxe (1p, 14 lines in ink, on printed stationery from The Inn, Brown's Mills-in-the-Pines, New Jersey, dated in pencil April 1906, very good with a little abrasion to the blank verso from a previous mounting). Wister appears to be writing to another author though the recipient is unidentified: "To return and finish Les Paysans [presumably the Balzac novel], that is my hope - meanwhile your two books are on the desk. I waited to see you before I left but I am told you are resting. I take away very pleasant memories of our evening...". Wister spent several years studying music in France before a life-changing visit to Wyoming made him an author. The Virginian was his most famous book: a tale of cowpunchers in Wyoming cattle country, generally regarded as the first cowboy novel and the book that defined a genre. The hero, tall and taciturn, morally incorruptible and quick on the draw, became the archetype of the cowboy ideal. Smith, American Fiction W-789. [Attributes: First Edition]

Pollard (1869-1948) was the founder and first director of the Institute of Historical Research. He wrote several works on Tudor history, the present being "easily his most successful book" (ODNB). Pollard greatly respected and "almost worshipped Henry VIII, whom he saw as a statesman of superb judgement, great subtlety, long vision and deep insight, and virtually invariable success, profoundly at one with the nation's destiny": opinions which fellow Tudor historian Sir Geoffrey Elton "thought 'bemused', but which were no doubt to be expected of an Asquithian Liberal born in 1869" and which have been contradicted consequently by revisionist historians (ibid.).

The Guild of Women-Binders was established in 1898 by bookseller Frank Karslake as "a way of publicising and promoting the sale of books bound by women" (Tidcombe pp. 27-8). Karslake set up the Guild following a display in his shop from November 1897 to February 1898 entitled an "Exhibition of Artistic Bookbinding by Women". This exhibition featured the work of female binders such as Annie S. Macdonald, whom Karslake met showcasing their binding at the Victorian Era Exhibition of 1897, and many of whom would become founding members of the Guild. In 1899 Karslake's daughter, Constance, set up a workshop for the Guild in Hampstead where members could train and work.
