        The Passing

      1902. Pen and ink illustration on irregularly shaped paper, two repaired tears upper right, mild soiling. Original drawing by the great American illustrator, Harrison Fisher This superb drawing of a handsome young woman swinging a golf club is undoubtedly the title page drawing for a story in one of the many illustrated magazines Fisher drew for. Known particularly for his portrayals of beautiful women, Fisher here renders flawlessly the calm concentration of the nicely turned out young golfer, as well as her fashionable, Edwardian attire. Harrison Fisher was one the leading lights in the "golden age of American illustration" that includes Howard Pyle, N.C.Wyeth, Charles Dana Gibson, Maxfield Parrish and others whose book and story illustrations were qualitatively much finer art than the stories were literature. He is best known for nearly twenty consecutive years of Cosmopolitan covers with their intriguing portraits of hopeful young maidens and loving couples.

        LES FLEURS PASSIONNÉES.

      Les Cahiers Humains, 125 rue d'Alésia, Paris, 1902 - Les Fleurs passionnées par Edmond Rocher (1902). 9 lithographies aquarellées (livraisons I, II et III seules parues ?). Rarissime. Pas à la Bnf ni ailleurs . Edmond ROCHER LES FLEURS PASSIONNÉES. Les Cahiers Humains, 125 rue d'Alésia, Paris, 1902 3 livraisons en feuilles de 3 lithographies chacune, couverture lithographiée, chaque lithographie est précédée d'un petit texte poétique en prose qui présente la fleur dessinée qui suit. 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. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. TIRAGE A TRÈS PETIT NOMBRE FORT PROBABLE (non mentionné). ÉDITION AVORTÉE ? Cette suite de lithographie, recherches approfondies effectuées, n'a semble-t-il jamais été jusqu'au bout de sa parution prévue en 10 livraisons de 3 lithographies chacune au prix de 5 francs l'ensemble. Seules les livraisons 1, 2 et 3 ont paru croyons-nous et le tirage dû être très faible si l'on s'en tient à l'absence totale d'exemplaires qu'on peut trouver dans les différents catalogues de bibliothèques consultés. "Commentant la femme par la fleur ou interprétant la fleur par la femme, le "florier d'amour" ainsi que l'appelle le poète Paul Redonnel, offre aujourd'hui à ses amis, à ses admirateurs, au public, de véritables petites merveilles. Edmond Rocher est un des rares artistes qui connaisse, interprète et rende si intensément la fleur, cette chose exquise, aimée de tous, grands et petits, filles et femmes, jeunes et vieux. Les Fleurs passionnées sont appelées à un grand succès. Il est fort probable que le premier tirage, faisant prime, sera recherché par les amateurs ; et nous ne serions pas étonnés de ne pouvoir sous peu répondre à toutes les demandes. Les Fleurs passionnées seront complètes en 10 fascicules. Chaque fascicule comprendra trois planches sous une couverture renouvelée, et l'ouvrage formera à la fin de la publication un superbe volume in-8 avec titre et table." (extrait du Journal d'Annonay du samedi 25 octobre 1902). "Toute une flore sexuelle et sexuée, pistils phalliques et corolles vaginales, pollen fécondant et équivoques enchevêtrements de feuillages. Des fleurs animées d'une sorte d'animalité possèdent des femmes curieuses et affolées que M. Ed. Rocher a dessinées avec beaucoup de charme." (extrait d'article de presse). On trouve différents articles pour le lancement de cette souscription : Mercure de France, etc. Une explication pourrait se trouver pour expliquer l'avortement prématuré de cette édition. Une interdiction de poursuivre pour obscénité, pornographie. 1902 est en effet une année de grande censure sur la nudité et la pornographie dans la presse et dans le monde de l'édition. Cette édition non dissimulée, publiée au grand jour, a pu déclencher les foudres de la censure. C'est l'explication que nous trouvons la plus plausible. Références : absent du catalogue de la Bnf (a du échapper au dépôt légal), CCfr, KVK, etc. BON EXEMPLAIRE. RARISSIME. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

He was famous for his satirical works, particularly Vanity Fair, a panoramic portrait of English society. He worked for Fraser's Magazine, a sharp-witted and sharp-tongued conservative publication, for which he produced art criticism, short fictional sketches, and two longer fictional works, Catherine and The Luck of Barry Lyndon. From 1837 to 1840 he also reviewed books for The Times. Later, through his connection to the illustrator John Leech, he began writing for the newly created Punch magazine, where he published The Snob Papers, later collected as The Book of Snobs. In the early 1840s, Thackeray had some success with two travel books, The Paris Sketch Book and The Irish Sketch Book. He achieved more recognition with his Snob Papers (serialised 1846/7, published in book form in 1848), but the work that really established his fame was the novel Vanity Fair, which first appeared in serialised installments beginning in January 1847. Even before Vanity Fair completed its serial run, Thackeray had become a celebrity, sought after by the very lords and ladies whom he satirised; they hailed him as the equal of Dickens. On 23 December 1863, after returning from dining out and before dressing for bed, Thackeray suffered a stroke and was found dead in his bed in the morning. His death at the age of fifty-two was entirely unexpected, and shocked his family, friends, and reading public. An estimated 7000 people attended his funeral at Kensington Gardens. He was buried on 29 December at Kensal Green Cemetery, and a memorial bust sculpted by Marochetti can be found in Westminster Abbey. Contains the bookbinders' label of W. M. and A. of Westminster to each pastedown. Condition: In decorative half-morocco binding with gilt detailing and cloth covered boards. Externally sound, there are slight markings to the boards, some mild wear to the extremities and joints, as well as sunning to backstrips. Internally, the pages are generally firmly bound and are bright and clean throughout, aside from the odd spot. All the volumes bar one, two, seven, nine and twelve are missing their decorative front free endpaper and the half-title page of volume five is partially detached,and there are remnants of a bookplate to the endpages of volume eleven. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Complete Writings of Walt Whitman

      New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons. Book-lover's Camden Edition. hardcover. Fine. BEAUTIFUL 1902 "Book-lover's Camden Edition" of Whitman's work; in nearly perfect condition in original three-quarter vellum gilt and with scarce original dust jackets. Complete in ten volumes. One of 500 numbered sets. "The 1902 Complete Writings was a luxurious edition that served to memorialize Whitman and packaged his work in a form that clearly indicated (and argued for) his importance as a writer at a time when his status as one of America's great authors was anything but secure. Anyone looking at this edition of his work knew immediately that it looked like the work of a major author-it was a multi-volume set, bound handsomely, printed on fine paper, published by a well-known and reputable press (G. P. Putnam's Sons), and accompanied by scholarly apparatus. These were books making Whitman... "In addition to a three-volume 'Deathbed' edition of Leaves of Grass, the Complete Writings contained Whitman's major prose publications and a potpourri of other materials-Whitman's Civil War letters to his mother, his letters to Peter Doyle, an apparently random gathering of manuscript fragments, and some criticism about Whitman. Also included was the first attempt at a variorum edition of Leaves, beginning to track the thousands of changes Whitman made in the book over its six editions" (Walt Whitman Archive). The 1902 Complete Writings, issued simultaneously in several formats or "editions", is the first full collection of Whitman's work. Illustrated with a photogravure frontispiece for each volume and tissue-guarded full-page mounted photogravures throughout. New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons. 1902. Thick octavo (6.25" x 9" in.), original publisher's three-quarter vellum gilt over gray paper boards; original printed dust jackets. Ten volumes. Handsome bookplate of R. Mck. Duperu on front pastedown of each volume. Occasional minor fraying to dust jacket edges; a few spots of very minor wear. A nearly perfectly preserved set, without any of the spine-toning common with these volumes.

Also included are readers guides for the classics, such as Kipling's Kim and Sherlock Holmes.This is the only copy listed outside of Japan and the only complete set listed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Cyril Connolly, in The Modern Movement (1965), described it as "a masterpiece of sinister deterioration seen by the narrator who is himself profoundly altered by it." David Garnett referred to it as "the high-water mark of the author's talent" and Eliot lifted from it the epigraph "Mistah Kurtz - he dead" for "The Hollow Men" (1925).

        THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES

      1902. Another Adventure of Sherlock Holmes. London: George Newnes, 1902. Original red cloth decorated in gilt and black. First Edition of Doyle's famous full-length Sherlock Holmes novel, illustrated by Sidney Paget -- a tale Doyle himself termed "a real creeper." This was the first Sherlockian tale since Doyle had apparently killed him off in "The Final Problem" of late 1893. However, since THE HOUND takes place chronologically before then, Doyle was not here officially "reviving" Holmes; this he would do the following year, when he wrote "The Adventure of the Empty House" -- which would be the first tale of THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES in 1905.~This is an attractive, near-fine copy, quite bright and with only minor rubbing (one tiny worn spot at a rear fore-corner); atypically, the leaves have very little foxing and the endpapers are intact. Though THE HOUND was issued in considerable numbers, it is becoming difficult to find in truly advantageous condition. Green & Gibson A26a. Housed in a clamshell case with leather labels.

Freshfield was a former President of the Alpine Club and an honorary secretary of the Royal Geographical Society.

He made the first ascent of Kazbek (16,546 ft.), Elbruz (18,470 ft.), and several other peaks. After returning to the Caucasus in 1887 and 1889 he published the present book which remains a standard work. Neate F62. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Just So Stories For Little Children

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1902. First edition, first printing, first issue. Hardcover. Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English poet, short-story writer, and novelist chiefly remembered for his celebration of British imperialism, tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children. Kipling was in his twenties when his stories of Anglo-Indian life made him a literary celebrity, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907. Born in India and educated in England, Kipling could not afford to attend either Oxford or Cambridge University and instead returned to India to work as a newspaper editor and writer. Kipling, who had written verse since he was young, also began to write short stories, publishing seven volumes of fiction between the years 1888 and 1889, before the age of 24. He returned to England in 1889, later living in the United States and South Africa before finally settling in England. But it was India that gave Kipling his most enduring literary settings and inspiration. Kipling wrote the beloved Just So Stories for his three children and, with the exception of ?"How the Alphabet Was Made,?" they appeared in English and American periodicals between 1897 and 1902. In this volume of the stories, the untitled verses that accompany each story appeared for the first time. The stories include ?"How the Whale Got His Throat,?" ?"How the Camel Got His Hump,?" ?"How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin,?" ?"How the Leopard Got His Spots,?" ?"The Elephant?'s Child,?" ?"The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo,?" ?"The Beginning of the Armadillos,?" ?"How the First Letter Was Written,?" ?"How the Alphabet Was Made,?" ?"The Crab that Played with the Sea,?" ?"The Cat that Walked by Himself,?" and ?"The Butterfly that Stamped.?" The title of the book comes from the December 1897 publication of ?"How the Whale Got His Throat?" in St. Nicholas magazine, where it was noted that this type of story ?" ?'had to be told just so, without alteration of ?'one single word?' ?" (Richards A181). Though rooted in an Empire sensibility that became archaic even before his death, Kipling?'s best tales remain iconic, even elemental examples of the storyteller?'s craft. ?"There has yet been no writer of short stories in English to challenge his achievement, which ranges through space from India to the home counties, and through time from Stone Age man to the contemporary world of football matches and motor cars. These stories, moreover, exhibit every kind of treatment, from the farcical to the tragic, and their structures vary from the simplest anecdote to the most complex and allusive philosophical fiction, dense enough to support endless exegesis and commentary?" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). This first edition of Just So Stories for Children features 22 full-page plates of illustrations by Kipling himself, including a map printed in red and black, historiated capital letters for chapter openers, and in-text illustrations. It is the only one of his books that Kipling illustrated. This lovely example of the first edition, first state is quite scarce thus, in near fine condition. The striking illustrated binding is beautifully preserved, square, clean, and tight with only light wear to extremities. The contents are clean and bright. We find no previous ownership marks. Modest spotting is confined to the endpapers and there is an expert marginal paper repair to page 39/40. This first issue used Chinese white (now called zinc oxide) pigment on its covers, which had a tendency to flake off; of particular note, the pigment on this copy remains bright and intact. The binding is protected beneath a removable, clear mylar cover. Bibliographic reference: Richards A181; Livingston 267.
