        Novel): Diane, Priestess of Haiti, in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine, LXIX, April 1902

      J.B. Lippincott, Philadelphia 1902 - First, and apparently only edition. Front wrap detached, and chipped at the bottom corner, as are the edges of the first two pages (both of ads), last page of the novel has a short tear and small chip, as do a few of the following pages, else a sound and readable, good or better copy. This issue contains the only appearance of this complete novel by an African-American author. The novel features a separate title page, prints the author's name and title on the spine, and takes up a significant portion of the magazine (80 of the issue's 128 pages, with the remainder mostly comprising advertisements). Durham (1861-1919), born in Pennsylvania, was the assistant editor of the *Philadelphia Evening Bulletin*. In 1891 he was named U.S. Charge d'Affaires to Santo Domingo and U.S. Minister to Haiti, an office that he served in until 1893. This novel was not published elsewhere to our knowledge. Individual issues of this issue of the magazine are rare. We have never seen another offered for sale. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        YOUTH: A NARRATIVE: and Two Other Stories.

      Edinburgh:: Blackwood and Sons,. 1902.. First edition, with ads dated "10/02." Although Cagle doesn't assign priority, one might assume copies such as this one, with ads dated October, precede those with November's ads. Three stories or novellas, including one of Conrad's most highly regarded works, HEART OF DARKNESS, which explores parallels between London and Africa as places of darkness, with little difference between so-called civilised people and those described as savages (Wikipedia). Connolly, in his MODERN MOVEMENT, calls it "a masterpiece of sinister deterioration seen by the narrator who is himself profoundly altered by it" [Connolly 14]. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked HEART OF DARKNESS among its hundred best novels in English of the twentieth century. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, titles and floral decorations to front board in black. A very good copy with some cover aging, spine a little darkened, minor wear on corners and spine ends, and very light foxing on front page edges. .

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Heidelberg, 9. X. 1902. - 3 SS. 8vo. An den Musikwissenschaftler Richard Batka (1868-1922): "Am 16. Novbr findet in der hiesigen St. Peters (zugleich ‚Bachvereins')-kirche die Enthüllungsfeier der großen (wunderherrlichen!) Wandgemälde von Hans Thoma statt. Hiezu wird der Bachverein (erstmalig) das Osteroratorium des Meisters Bach, sowie das Bach'sche Lied ‚Gib dich zufrieden' im Satze für gemischten Chor musicieren. Es kommen viele Festgäste: Frau Wagner mit den Ihrigen, Humperdinck u. Frau, Mottl, Thoma, etc., die dann Abends in meinem Hause sein werden, wo ich mit Mottl die Goldbergschen Variationen auf 2 Klavieren vortragen und ein Frankfurter Sänger Lieder und Gesänge aus dem ‚Notenbüchlein für Anna Magdalena Bach' singen wird. Ich möchte nun anfragen ob Ihnen hiefür eine Berichterstattung aus der Feder eines jungen Studenten (der etwas Honorar sehr gut brauchen könnte, er ist Theologe, mein Schüler und sonst Kunstbeflissener und heisst Fritz Stein) willkommen wäre und bitte zugleich dieses etwa vorgesehene Plätzchen nicht anderweitig zu vergeben [ ]." - Wolfrum war ein Vorkämpfer der Programmreform und der neudeutschen Bewegung, prägte die Bach-Renaissance und -Rezeption seiner Zeit und setzte sich besonders für Richard Strauss und Max Reger ein, deren Stil er auch für seine Kompositionen (Orchester- und Kammermusik, Chorwerke, Orgelsonaten) zum Vorbild nahm.

        Autograph Document of the Kartell Lyrischer Autoren

      An important autograph document shedding light on the internal workings of the "Kartell lyrischer Autoren," the cartel founded in 1902 to protect the rights of German lyric authors to earn money from their writing. Founded by Richard Dehmel and Arno Holz, the cartel soon grew to more than a hundred members. The document, dated 1910, is an autograph letter from the German lyric poet and Kartell committee member, Carl Busse to the other members of the committee, with autograph responses following on the same sheet from Richard Dehmel, Gustav Falke, Arno Holz, Paul Heyse, and Hugo von Hoffmannsthal. It deals with a disagreement among the committee: Alfred Mombert has been elected to the committee, but questions have been raised about the election process. Carl Busse's letter suggests another election following a new procedure, to which the other members respond. Richard Dehmel writes: "I stand by my vote for Mombert, but have nothing against proceeding according to Herr Busse's suggestion at a future election. Incidentally, it is not yet at all certain that Mombert will accept the nomination." In fact, Mombert did not join the committee in 1910, but only in 1914, after the death of Paul Heyse.4 pp. Folding creases and light toning; overall in fine condition. 21 x 33 cm. See:Wolfgang Martens: Lyrik kommerziell: das Kartell lyrischer Autoren 1902-1933. (Fink, 1975)Peter Sprengel: Geschichte der deutschsprachigen Literatur, 1900-1918: von der Jahrhundertwende bis zum Ende des ersten Weltkriegs.

This book is scarce in general, but considered truly rare complete and in such clean condition. " he was the first successful comic strip character to achieve a popularity so great that he not only increased the sales of newspapers carrying him, but he was also the first to demonstrate that a comic strip character could be merchandised profitably. In fact, for these two reasons, the Yellow Kid and his creator, R. F. Outcault, are generally credited with permanently establishing the comic strip and making it a part of American society." "When the interest in 'Yellow Kid' cooled down around 1901, Outcault created new features, such as 'Lil' Mose', the first strip with a black as its principal character, in James Gordon Bennett's New York Herald. " Pore Lil Mose is "ranked among the five most valuable Platinum Age Comics by Overstreet". .

        The priest and the acolyte (honi soit qui y pense)

      no place [London]: Privately Printed for Presentation Only [Smithers], [1902-1905?]. Paperback. 44p., 7x8.5 inches, [limited to 50 copies] mild toning to margins, first separate edition slim saddle-stapled paperback in printed green wraps, spinechipped, edges chipped, rear cover present but detached. This short tale of the seduction of an altar boy by a priest and their subsequent suicides was first published anonymously in the single issue of "The Chameleon: Voluem 1, Number 1, December 1894" The magazine was edited by John Francis Bloxham (who was later revealed to be the author of the story) The story was misattributed to Oscar Wilde who denied authorship and considered the story to be too direct. Wilde was however a contributor of epigrams to the magazine and it was that magazine and this tale that contributed to the charges against Wilde in his infamous trials in 1895. This edition has a copyright date of 1894 (the date of the magazine appearance) but several sources indicate a much later date between 1902 and 1905 (see Nelson "Publisher to the Decadents: Leonard Smithers in the Careers of Beardsley, Wilde, and Dowson" 350) In 1907 another edition was published by Lotis Press revealing the true author.

        THE PHOTO-SECESSION (Founded February 17, 1902). Nos. 1-6.

      New York: Alfred Stieglitz, 1902-1905. First edition. Stieglitz, Alfred. 6 issues. Small 8vos. No. 1 December 1902, (4) pp.; No. 2 April 1903, (4) pp.; No. 3 October 1903, (8) pp.; No. 4 February 1904, (8) pp.; No. 5 May 1904, (8) pp.; No. 6 February 1905, (8) pp. . Bound into simple gray paper over boards which shows moderate staining; the contents are fine and bright. Housed in a newly made clamshell box of cloth with a morocco panel and spine label. Alfred Stieglitz, after leaving the Camera Club of New York and serving as the editor of their official organ, Camera Notes, issued these six pamphlets as his "rallying cry" for a new movement in photography, the Photo-Secession, a distinctly American Pictorialist approach to the art. These missives outline his vision for the movement, its direction and criteria for inclusion in this most exclusive group. Notices of future exhibitions are printed with requests for the submission of prints, these include the Wiesbaden International Pictorial Photographic Portrait Exhibition; St. Petersburg International Photographic Exhibition; salons in Paris, Toronto, Minneapolis, Cleveland, etc., etc. The Exhibition Notes in issue No. 4 (February 1904) announced the edition de luxe catalogue for the Pittsburgh show of 1904 (see the next entry below). Each issue lists new members, a synopsis of the monthly dinner, a brief financial statement, and awards issued to members at various exhibitions. OCLC locates a single issue at Yale and The Met, with a complete set at the British Library. Exceedingly rare. Additionally, laid in is a small envelope with "G. O'Keeffe" written in ink on the front and the imprinted return, "Mrs. Louis Stecker... Philadelphia, PA." on the rear flap. Stecker is the maiden name of Dorothy Norman, whose long and intimate relationship with Alfred Stieglitz is well known. Inside the envelope are the following; a halftone reproduction of a Stieglitz portrait of Georgia O'Keeffe from 1918; a commercially printed b&w silver gelatin photograph of O'Keeffe sitting in front of her painting, Farmhouse Window and Door,1929, made from a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch negative and printed on what appears to be photographic paper from the 1930s; and a densely exposed negative of O'Keeffe standing in front of two of her paintings, 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches. Alfred Stieglitz used a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch Graflex camera and in 1931 he gave Dorothy Norman the same camera which she used through much of her career. From the estate of Dorothy Norman.

        Animals in Motion. An Electro-Photographie Investigation of Consecutive Phases of Animal Progressive Movements. Commenced 1872. Completed 1885.

      Chapman & Hall,, London, 1902 - London, Chapman & Hall, 1902. Quer-2°. 4 n.n. + 264 S. OLwd. 2. Aufl. In engl Sprache. Mit der faksimilierten Widmung am Frontispiz. - Ebd. leicht berieben, Buchblock leicht gelockert, leichte Gbrsp. - Muybridge (1830-1904), wanderte in die USA aus und wurde dort zu einem der bekanntesten Fotografen des 19. Jahrhunderts. Seine verträumten Landschaftsbilder aus dem Yosemite Valley verkauften sich millionenfach, seine Dia-Vorträge wurden in Europa begeistert gefeiert - ein früher Starfotograf, der selbst die dunklen Seiten des Celebrity-Daseins idealtypisch vorweg nahm: 1874 erschoss er den Liebhaber seiner Frau, wurde in einem spektakulären Prozess dann aber freigesprochen. Die Jury zeigte Verständnis für den Rachedurst des gehörnten Ehemannes. Zudem kam der Mann mit dem wild wuchernden Bart bei seinen Experimenten dem Geheimnis des Bewegtbildes auf die Spur - und schrieb so Geschichte: Muybridges Bewegungsstudien von Rennpferden bildeten den Grundstein für das Kino, zwanzig Jahre vor den Brüdern Lumière. Nicht nur hatte er Wissenschaft und Technik einen entscheidenden Schritt vorangebracht. Seine Bewegungsstudien von Tieren und Menschen wurden auch zu einer Inspirationsquelle für Generationen von Künstlern. (Zitat nach Carsten Volkery). - Beiliegend die wissenschaftliche Grundlage für seine Fotografie: Étienne-Jules MAREY, La Locomotion Animale. Extrait du Traite de Physique Biologique, Tome 1er. (Paris, Masson et Cie., 1877). Mit einer eighd. Widm. von Marey. - Marey, (1830 -1904), studierte zunächst an der Ecole polytechnique in Beaume und seit 1850 in Paris Medizin. Er spezialisierte sich auf Physiologie und Pathophysiologie des Kreislaufsystems. Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt bei Carl Ludwig in Wien, kehrte er 1860 nach Paris zurück. Er war ein Pionier auf den Gebieten der Blutmessung, graphischen Aufzeichnungstechnik, wissenschaftlicher Photographie, Luftfahrt und Kinematographie. Ab 1870 erweiterte er sein Interesse auf technische Erfindungen zum Studium biologischer Bewegungsphänomene, die ebenfalls in dem vorliegenden Sonderdruck abgebildet sind.
