        The Masque of the Edwards of England: Being a Coronation Pageant to Celebrate the Crowning of the King.

      Oblong Folio, original cloth lettered in black on upper board, printed on vellum in Endeavour type in red and black. Illustrated with 18 drawings by Edith Harwood, these handcoloured and heightened in gold. A little soiling to cloth, sheets slightly pulling from binding but sound. A very good copy. First edition, limited edition of 320 copies, this one of only 20 copies printed on vellum with handcolouring by Edith Harwood and with the illustrations heightened with gold. The author's own copy with his bookplate. "Also outstanding is the 1902 Masque of the Edwards of England with sumptuous drawings by Edith Harwood, featuring crisp, clean lines and subdued, but exotic colours." (Book Arts Collections: A Representative Selection edited by Edward Ripley-Duggan). Ashbee's proposed pageant to celebrate Edward VII's coronation was never performed.

        Messieurs Les Anglais. Dessins de E. Thélem.

      Oblong 4to., in original red cloth over bevelled boards with titles in gilt and large pictorial decoration in gilt and colours. 43 printed pages, with chromolithographs on every page, and text on alternate pages. Boards rubbed and worn with a little loss at head and foot of spine. First edition of this satire on Edwardian England. A sly peek at English traits and foibles from across the Channel, this book also serves as an excellent template for the styles and appearances of English clothing in the Edwardian era. This copy is accompanied by an English translation of the French text, pp.82 loose leaves, with the translation interleaved with copies of the original text and illustrations. [also with] A 29 page copy typed draft for an Introduction to an English version of the book written by Bevis Hillier. Hillier had come across a copy of this book and was enchanted by it. "I soon conceived the idea of a facsimile with a full English translation interleaved and with an Introduction to put the work in context, to confirm some of Sergius's statements and challenge or refute others". Sadly the project did not come to fruition but we are pleased to offer Hillier's copy of the book with his draft Introduction and a copy of the prototype interleaved translation.

        SOUVENIR G. N. G. K of P. [Grand National Gathering, Knights of Pythias]. San Francisco Aug. 11th to 20th 1902. Gold Mines of California

      San Francisco, 1902. Housed in the original wooden box, with sample ore and nuggets glued to a printed sheet at the bottom of the box. Box lid with stamped title lettering. The lid inside with an affixed 12-line printed sheet, "Gold Mines of California", which also notes the State Mineralogist's Report for 1901 giving total value of mined minerals for the year [$34,355,901]. Very Good. Light damp-staining to interior sides and printed sheet at bottom of box.. A souvenir box of gold and silver ore from the 1902 Grand National Gathering of the Knights of Pythias, during which approximately 7,000 members of the order descended on San Francisco during August of that year. One of many exhibitions held at the Grand Nave of the Ferry Building and other locations around the city (and across the Bay) included a display, in miniature, of the agricultural produce and minerals of California [San Francisco Chronicle, 11 Aug 1902]; we conjecture that the souvenir box accompanied this display or a similar one. The nine ore samples are representative of those found in nine California counties (Nevada, Calaveras, Mariposa, Tuolumne, Plumas, El Dorado, Butte, Shasta and Amador). Also included are a gold nugget, a gold specimen, and a piece of petrified wood.

        Autograph letter signed in full to "Herr Levy"

      - 2-1/3 pp. of a bifolium. Dated [Berlin]-Charlottenburg, January 23, 1902. In German (with transcription and translation). Regarding a recommendation for the director of the Berliner Tonkünstlerorchester, Herr Strunz, and mentioning Strauss's "Singgedicht," Feursnot. Strunz "is looking for some patrons enthusiastic about the arts who could help him materially. Is it very outrageous of me to bother you with this? Since, however, I myself, too, am only guided by purely artistic interest in this enterprise, to which I contribute the greatest sacrifices of time and effort myself, perhaps you will forgive me. I am going to travel to Vienna tomorrow for the premiere of my opera."Creased at folds; four small file holes to blank inner margins filled in with matching paper just slightly affecting several letters. We have been unable to identify Strauss's correspondent with certainty, although it is possible that he is the German composer and patron of the arts, Martin Levy (1836-1911). The Berliner Tonkünstlerorchester, an ensemble devoted to contemporary music, was founded by Strauss. Feuersnot ("Fire-Famine"), a "Singgedicht" or "sung poem" in one act to a libretto by Ernst von Wolzogen, was first performed at the Hofoper in Dresden on November 21, 1901; it had its Viennese premiere on January 29, 1902. "Strauss';s second operatic essay was a ribald exercise in snook-cocking. His first opera Guntram had suffered a painful fiasco in Munich, his home town, and Feuersnot was his jovial revenge. That Feuersnot should be appreciated only by scholars was the last thing Strauss intended: for the sake of the dewily attractive, well-shaped score, there is a strong case for reinventing its text in terms as rudely up to date as need be."

        COMPLETE WORKS: Edited and Chronologically Arranged on the Basis of the Standard Text, With Certain Additional Materials, and with a Critical Introduction by Charles F. Richardson, Professor of English in Dartmouth College

      New York: The Knickerbocker Press for G. P. Putnam's, 1902. 10 volumes. The Arnheim edition, one of 500 numbered sets signed by the publisher. Numerous illustrations on Japan vellum paper, decorations in text by Frederick Simpson Coburn. 8vo, finely bound in vellum and boards, the backs gilt extra and beautifully designed. A well preserved and handsome set. The spines with some mellowing or aging as is usual, the text-blocks clean and in excellent condition. The bindings strong and tight and clean, the corners sharp and in fine condition. A very scarce set, one of the nicest editions of Poe ever published. The Arnheim Book-Lover's Edition includes very impressive illustrations printed on Japan vellum. Each volume has a decorated titlepage and limitation page printed in black and red. It contains all of the poetry and stories for which the author is so well known, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. Poe is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre and is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career. Beyond horror, Poe also wrote satires, humor tales, and hoaxes. For comic effect, he used irony and ludicrous extravagance, often in an attempt to liberate the reader from cultural conformity.

        [Doves Press- Association Copy, Emery Walker to His Wife] Paradise Lost [and] Paradise Regained

      Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1902, 1905. First edition thus. Two Volumes, 4to. Original limp vellum, gilt spines. Superb Association Copy, inscribed from Emery Walker to his wife on the recto of leaf just before titlepage: "to Mary Grace Walker with Emery Walker's best love December 1 1902" and later [just below] "to Lilias and Hugh Fisher [artist] in memory of Mary Grace Walker from Dorothy and Emery Walker 1920." Sir Emery Walker (1851-1933) set up the Doves Press (in 1900) along with the bookbinder T.J. Cobden-Sanderson in 1900. The Doves Press books, with their iconic typography and sparing aesthetic design inspired the revival of private-press printing in the 20th century. After Mary Grace's death, his daughter Dorothy looked after Walker and preserved many of his private papers. Printed in red and black, some foxing to fore-margins at beginning of first volume, original limp vellum, by the Doves Bindery. Spines titled in gilt, uncut, spine of vol.1 soiled and creased with joints partly split and chipped, preserved in attractive board slip-cases with decorated paper. The matching 'set' of "Paradise Lost and Regained" remains quite scarce, and along with this presentation from Emery Walker to his wife, certainly makes this item a lasting rarity.

        Memoria Historica, Tecnica y Administrativa de las Obras del Desague del Valle de Mexico 1449 - 1900

      Tipografia de la Oficina Impresora de Estampillas, Mexico City 1902 - Large folios (34 x 21.5 cm), 3 volumes, pp xv, frontis., 688; 462; atlas volume of 31 folding maps. Volume one is the history, in five books, bound together, of this vast project of draining the lake on which Mexico City sits, containing numerous full-page plates not numbered in the text. Volume two is a series of appendices to the books, containing documents and references found in the main text volumes: and volume three is a splendid collection of maps and plans, some historical and of two colors, some quite large, and all folding. Gonzalez Obregon (1865 - 1938) was a prominent historian, whose fame rests on his Mexico Viejo and Las Calles de Mexico, which are often encountered; the last named has been translated into English. He appears to have been (at least) the editor of the work. Bound in three-quarter calf over pebbled boards, panelled spine with raised bands and gilt title material. The entire set is very seldom found. No records at auction; OCLC does not list a complete set. Very nice. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Youth: A Narrative and Two Other Stories

      Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1902 First edition, first issue with earliest ads (dated "10/02"). Publisher's green cloth, front board with decorative floral motif and lettering in black, spine lettered in gilt with black flower decal. Very good, with some light rubbing to the extremities, slight lean to the spine, minor toning to the spine and board edges, a few light spots to the page edges, spine very lightly starting at the half-title, otherwise fresh interior. Overall, a bright and attractive copy. Wise 10. A collection of three short novels, this volume contains "Heart of Darkness" and "The End of the Tether" in addition to "Youth: a Narrative." The first two novels, both of which had been published separately prior to this publication, feature Conrad's reoccurring character Charles Marlow, who often serves as the author's alter-ego, and confront the dichotomy of East and West. "Youth," the shortest of the three pieces, is narrated by Marlow and tells the story of a young Western man's first trip to the East, while "Heart of Darkness" tells of the haunting story of Marlowe's work an ivory transporter on the Congo River in colonized Central Africa which led him to meet the shadowy Mr. Kurtz. The progression of the main character's age continues in "The End of the Tether," which tells of Captain Whalley as he spends his old age sailing. Together, the three volumes examine the different stages of life and the effect of society on an individual's life.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.
