        A Modern Miracle

      London Ward Lock 1902. 8vo. 318pp. + 2pp. ads. Bound in original deep red cloth titled and decorated in gilt and white to spine and front board, Minor edgewear and fading of the white paint, still very handsome. A very good copy. Mild bumping to extremities. Foredge untrimmed. Internally clean; W.H. Smith blindstamp to front flyleaf, ink ownership to same (F. R. Hayne Cook, Moulton Hall 1902). A scarce and actually rather important piece of science fiction dealing with the experimental creation of what is essentially a bionic man, throw in some references to television, and visual recording devices, an "elixir of death" and possibly one the earliest references to animal experimentation and you have a serious piece of science fiction. Pre-dates Beresford's "Hampdenshire Wonder" in the superhuman stakes and hardly anyone seems to have paid any attention to it. A very respectable copy of an influential and overlooked title.

        Astrologia Gallica [manuscript French translation of books 22-24; Directions, Revolutions, Passages]

      1902. Hardcover (Vellum). Good Condition. Full contemporary vellum, spine perished, tears to vellum on rear cover, binding still generally sound. Paper uniformly browned, a few small tears to page edges, fine otherwise. A 1902 manuscript translation of books 22-24 of Morin's 1661 Astrologia Gallica into French. 315 leaves written on one side with a detailed table of contents. (12), 315pp. Signed Etienne Dercaisay(?) and dated May 22, 1902 on the final page. An opponent of Gallileo (and Descartes, among others), Morin wrote the 26 books of the Astrologia Gallica but did not live to see them published (he died in 1659 and they were published in 1661). The early books provide the theoretical basis in theology for his work, while the later books discuss natal, judicial, mundane, electional and meteorological astrology. Pieces were translated into Spanish in the 19th century and French and German in the early 20th including book 21 into French in 1902, a French translation of book 25 was done in the 1940s and other books appeared in English beginning in 1974 (including book 21, published by NY City bookseller and astrologer Zoltan Mason - this book, though unmarked, is from his collection) and then a series of translations into English starting with book 22 in 1994. Size: Octavo (8vo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Science & Technology; Magic, Paranormal & Occult. Inventory No: 045866.

Contemporary bookplate to front pastedowns. Faint partial tanning to endpapers. An excellent set with exceptionally bright cloth and labels. The Author's Edition, the rare US issue, which, unlike the UK edition, includes The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Limited to 1,000 sets, of which this is number 54.

        The Adventures of Romney Pringle.

      London Ward Lock 1902. 8vo. 198pp + 2pp ads. Publisher's bright red cloth titled in gilt to spine and front board, decorated in white to bottom right front board. White decoration slightly rubbed but still strong and clear, most unusual for this title. Minor edgewear and bumping, sunning to spine with dulling to spine gilt, a very good copy indeed. Internally clean, ink number and W.H. Smith blind stamp to front flyleaf. Clean, sharp and tight, a very good copy indeed. Scarce.#An early foray into crime writing from Freeman, most famous for Dr. Thorndyke. Pringle, first released upon the world via Cassell's Magazine, is a gentleman con artist, master of disguise and all round hunter of other criminals. Much in the vein of Raffles, this criminous rarity has fallen recently among the ranks of forgotten titles. Thoroughly splendid.#

      [Bermuda. ca. 1902-1910].. Forty-four mounted albumen photographs, each 7¾ x 9¼ inches. Oblong folio. Contemporary three-quarter pebbled leather and cloth, gilt. Spine neatly repaired in matching calf. Gift inscription penciled on a front blank. Images generally crisp and clean. Very good. In a red cloth clamshell box, gilt leather label. A fascinating collection of early 20th-century photographs of Bermuda, from one of the noted local photographers of the era, William Weiss. Most of the photographs are stamped by Weiss's photography studio in the negative, and those that are not stamped are very likely also Weiss compositions. William Weiss was a commercial photographer active in Bermuda from about 1902 until his death in 1925. Many of the images here are iconic representations of Bermudian locations, also appearing later in reproductions, both monochromatic and in color, and on postcards. ^Some locations or subjects are identified in the image negative. The identifications within the images include the "Hotel Frascati," "Joyce's Dock Cave," "Date Palms" (two copies), "Cannon Rock," "A Fisherman's Home," "Whalers in Harbor," "Bananas," "H.M.S. PSYCHE in Dock," "Oldest House," "Devil's Hole," "Paw Paw," "Victoria Park," "Cedar Ave.," "Coral Rock," "Sperm Whale," "Screw Palm," "Swinging Bridge," "Royal Palms" (two copies), "Khyber Pass," "St. George's," "South Shore" (two different views), "Coca Nut Palm," "Gibbs Hill Light House," "Rock Quarry," "Lily Field," "Hamilton Harbor," "Tom Moore's House," "View from Gibbs Hill," "Ordinance Island," and "Rubber Tree." Eleven images feature human subjects, usually at work or utilized for reasons of perspective against architectural backgrounds. Of those photographs with human subjects, six contain images of people of color, including a delightful image of a older man playing a banjo while three children stand beside him, accompanying him on the triangle, snare drum, and tambourine, respectively. ^Determining an exact date for the album is a bit difficult. The image of the HMS Psyche in dry dock in Hamilton, Bermuda was taken in 1902 or 1903, after Weiss's arrival in Bermuda, but before the Psyche shipped out of Bermuda for service in Australia in December of 1903. So it is not logical that any earlier date could be assigned to the album than 1902. The album itself is stamped from the Bay City, Michigan studio of the photographic firm of Harman & Verner, which according to David Tinder's DIRECTORY OF EARLY MICHIGAN PHOTOGRAPHERS closed shop in 1911. As a result, it is fairly reasonable to assume that the album was assembled between 1902 and 1910, and probably nearer the earlier date. ^An exceptional assemblage of early Bermudian photography by one of the early masters of the art on the island. Together these images provide a rich picture of life in Bermuda, of the hardscrabble life of the inhabitants set against the beauty of the landscape, the harbor, the sea, the flora, the architecture, and more.

        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 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.
