        Hand-corrected typescript of Sappho, one hundred lyrics, translated and interpreted.

      [New York?: , 1902-3]. Together with a first edition of Carman's Sappho, One Hundred Lyrics (printed October 1903, published 1904), an inscribed first edition of Carman's A Vision of Sappho (December 1903), and a first edition of H. T. Wharton's Sappho: Memoir, Text, Selected Renderings and A Literal Translation (1875). Oblong typescript (214 x 136 mm), 110 unnumbered pages, text in blue to rectos only. Contemporary red half sheep, brown boards, red leather reinforcement strip to both hinges. Together with three octavo works, Wharton's Sappho in original vellum, Carman's Sappho in original white cloth backed green boards, and Carman's Vision of Sappho in original wrappers. Typescript worn at the spine and corners but sound and good; the published Sappho One Hundred Lyrics and the Wharton somewhat rubbed and marked, Wharton with front free endpaper excised, but both internally fresh and generally very good; the Vision of Sappho chipped at spine with repair and somewhat around the edges but internally clean and still good. Pre-publication hand-corrected typescript of Canada's unofficial poet laureate Bliss Carman's magnum opus, the first comprehensive and fully imagined rendering into English of the thithero fragmentary poems of Sappho, the greatest surviving lyric poet of the ancient world. This is presented together with a very scarce copy of the first edition, printed October 1903 and published 1904 in Boston by L. C. Page in a limited edition of 500 numbered copies (of which this is copy 13), an inscribed copy of the rare privately printed Carman poem A Vision of Sappho, and a rare US issue of the scarce first edition of the book from which Carman worked to create his lyrics, H. T. Wharton's scholarly compendium of the surviving Greek fragments together with the previous attempts at English translations (London: David Stott, 1875, with here a cancel title page for the US issue by Jansen, McClurg, and Co. of Chicago). In 1902, Carman was residing in New York. His friend Mitchell Kennerley gave him a copy of H. T. Wharton's Sappho, and suggested that he poeticise Wharton's more literal translations. This sparked off an inspiration for Carman, who set to work reassembling the disjecta membra of the surviving Sappho fragments that Wharton afforded him, fleshing it out with his own imagination. Fellow Canadian poet Charles G. D. Roberts, in his introduction to the published One Hundred Lyrics, glosses Carman's method thus: "It is as if a sculptor of to-day were to set himself, with reverence, and trained craftsmanship, and studious familiarity with the spirit, technique, and atmosphere of his subject, to restore some statues of Polyclitus or Praxiteles of which he had but a broken arm, a foot, a knee, a finger upon which to build." The first appearance of Carman's Sappho lyrics was a private printing (60 copies) of only 15 lyrics. The omission of that item here must be excused by its extreme rarity - the last copy recorded at auction was in 1926. Carman continued work on swelling the number of the Sappho lyrics, and also wrote his own long original poem evoking the imaginative excitement of this encounter with Sappho, entitled A Vision of Sappho. This was printed in December 1903 again in a private edition of 60 copies. The copy included here (as rare as the 15 Sappho lyrics of 1902 - the last copy of A Vision of Sappho at auction was in 1938) has been reminiscently inscribed by Carman on the first blank: "Written in the Catskills a long time ago when we seemed to have more leisure for such things. The thrushes still sing there in the serene twilight to the hemlocks and the mountains streams still murmur all night long; the shadows of clouds still traverse the wooded slopes; yet something has departed. It must be we who have changed. Twilight Park, 1920. Bliss Carman". Carman's One Hundred Lyrics of Sappho would come to be his most enduring work - acknowledged by the Dictionary of Canadian Biography to be his "finest volume of poetry". It is particularly notable for having made Sappho accessible and exciting to a non-academic English-speaking audience, and some lyrics, such as "I loved thee, Atthis, in the long ago" and "Over the roofs the honey-coloured moon", are still quoted by Carman and Sappho enthusiasts alike. It was read and admired in particular by modernist poets such as Wallace Stephens and Ezra Pound. Indeed, critic D. M. R. Bentley has suggested that "the brief, crisp lyrics of the Sappho volume almost certainly contributed to the aesthetic and practice of Imagism". The typescript here is the linchpin of this presentation of the Carman/Sappho story. Textually it stands between the typescript in the Berg Collection at the New York Public Library, and the published version. The prior typescript had more lyrics, and was numbered in accordance to Wharton's numbering of the fragments that inspired them. Several of those Carman cut, and the present typescript has been renumbered and rearranged into its near-published state. A previous owner has enumerated, on a lengthy hand-list, the textual differences between the lyrics in this typescript and those in the Berg. This document also carries the assertion that various letter forms in the manuscript corrections here tally satisfactorily with "Carman's hand in letters to Miss Hawthorne in the Berg MS". There are approximately 100 typed or manuscript corrections to this typescript, the vast majority constitute corrections to errors or omissions in typing up the text from the Berg typescript. Comparing the present typescript with the published version, almost all of these corrections are retained in the published version. There are also some errors and omissions in the typescript which are not corrected here but have been corrected in the published version, but overall the text of the typescript appears in near-finished state. While the manuscript corrections, though in places very like, are not definitively attributable to Carman's hand (there is after all a chance the typescript could have been secretarial or editorial), there is one manuscript correction that necessitates authorial involvement, the addition of the word "sea" in lyric XXXI, the line "tell while the [sea] stands" - the Berg typescript has "world", and interestingly in the published version this is changed back to "world". This typescript also has a working title not retained in the published version, "One hundred lyrics, translated and interpreted by...", and it does not have the epigraphic poem "Now to please my little friend", nor of course the lengthy prose introduction by Roberts, both of which were added for the published version. All this firmly asserts the typescript's pre-publication status. Laid in at the rear of the typescript is a near-contemporary newspaper clipping of "A Newly Discovered Poem of Sappho" translated by Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918) - an appealing continuation of the Sappho story.

        A Travers le Turkestan Russe: ouvrage illustré de deux cent-soixante-cinq gravures d'après les clichés de l'auteur et contenant une carte en couleurs.

      Hachette et Cie Paris 1902 - First edition, large 4to. (34.4 x 26.3 cm). Half-title with author's presentation inscription to verso, title, [2], VII, 228, [4] pp., with 70 heliogravure plates including frontispiece, all with original protective tissues with printed captions, a large coloured folding map, 195 heliogravures in text; small marginal clean tear to pp. 189 - 190 and one plate not affecting image. Original red calf with green polished leather panels laid in (front and back), decoratively blind and gilt tooled with three cartouches on each cover, red calf spine, with large yellow calf label and gilt-tooled decorative elements, original red silk ribbon present, decorative endpapers, parchment leaves with decorative gilt cartouches at beginning and end; slightly sunned. Deluxe edition of one of the best illustrated works on Turkestan. Rare in such fresh condition. The Central Asian lands had been for centuries an important trading post for both East and West. Despite this, knowledge about the region remained patchy in Europe. Even when the area was opened up by railway, it was still a 15 day journey from Paris to Tashkent by the quickest route. In 1898 Hugues Krafft (1853 – 1935), a very wealthy French nobleman, travelled in Russian Turkestan for several months and visited Samarkand, Bukhara, Tashkent, Kokan and other cities. By then Krafft had already visited the European part of Russia, Japan and most of Europe, but nothing could prepare him for the treasures he encountered in Central Asia: 'charmé par la beauté des hautes montagnes et des florissantes vallées, par la splendeur des monuments du passé, par le coloris extraordinaire des costumes, et par l'attrait d'une population éminemment pittoresque, -- autant de sujets qui me procurèrent des impressions plus vives qu'aucune de celles déjà éprouvées dans d'autres pays d'Orient'. A talented photographer, Krafft recorded everything he saw on the way: the vibrant markets of Bukhara; the ancient monuments of Samarkand; the diverse range of natural phenomena on display in Turkestan; the colourful costumes of different classes and professions; and the local impact of Muslim culture. On his return to Paris Krafft produced an account of the journey lavishly illustrated with 70 high-quality photogravures and 195 heliogravures in phototype, showing the peoples, costumes, traditions, festivals, towns, mosques, madrassas, mountains and valleys of these regions. No expense was spared in the publication of this work. The photogravures were printed on heavy, high-quality vellum-paper, each protected with a tissue-guard bearing an explanatory caption; the text and the heliogravures were printed on glossy paper with wide margins and the additional watermarks "H. Krafft" and "Le Turkestan Russe". A number of copies, including this one, were reserved for the Krafft's close circle and the European aristocracy, including Tsar Nicholas II. These were signed by the author and bound in luxurious and highly decorative full calf gilt bindings. Yakushi (1994) K316. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter Initialed to "My dear Smith"

      1902. Two pages, on "Undershaw, Hindhead, Haslemere" stationery. No date, but "Rec'd 10 Mar 1902" is penciled in. The text of the letter reads:~I will call about quarter to 11 on Tuesday morning if that will not be too early. If you should be a little late I can no doubt get some news from Mr. Howard.~The American Edition is out.~I had a letter from Holtermann complaining that he had had no proofs for 8 days. I therefore sent a stimulating wire to Bloch.~A very excellent German book "Recht und Unrecht im Boerenkrieg" by one Hirtz [sic] published by Dr. Edelheim, Berlin W. has just come into my hands. It is very good & seems cheap. I have written to the publishers to find the price if bought by the hundred. I thought that we might possibly care to send out a few hundred of them, if none have been sent out, for we should make more sure of our bird if we had two barrels. I have asked Angst if he would like a hundred.~Angst wants a recent Edition.~I wish you too would have a dozen copies sent to my brother in South Africa. Capt Hay Doyle, 79th Battery, Harrismith.~I shall be in London from Tuesday till Friday.~Yours ever~ACD. [P.S.] Half a dozen copies sent to the OC [Officers' Club?] at [Doyle lists 13 overseas locations with a British military presence, mostly in South Africa but also Belfast] would be very well spent.~"Smith" was Reginald J. Smith, who in 1899 had become head of the publishing firm Smith, Elder & Co.-- founded two generations earlier by George Smith, in 1816.~The book Doyle initially refers to ("The American edition is out") was his sixpenny propaganda monograph THE WAR IN SOUTH AFRICA: ITS CAUSE AND CONDUCT, with facts distilled from his lengthy 1900 book THE GREAT BOER WAR, but adding Doyle's "apologia" [Pearsall] for some of the British conduct since then -- such as concentration camps and dum-dum bullets. Smith Elder's London edition had come out in mid-January (250,000 copies, plus a second printing of 50,000 more in mid-February), and McClure Phillips's American edition (50,000) came out in March. Profits from the booklet went to a variety of charitable causes; the booklet was partly responsible for the offer of a knighthood, which the author accepted.~"Mr. Howard" was the employee at Smith Elder who arranged the many translations of this book; Green & Gibson cites fifteen such translations, including Russian, Hungarian, Tamil and braille.~The German book which is the focus of much of the letter was (translated) RIGHT AND WRONG IN THE BOER WAR by then-23-year-old Friederich Hertz, published by Edelheim in Berlin in 1902 and which "earned him the thanks of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle" [Foreign Affairs, July 1919]. Hertz, who went on to write RACE AND CULTURE in 1904, was an Austrian who was a staunch opponent of German imperialism and militarism -- hence Doyle's appreciation. Though Hertz would serve in the Austro-Hungarian army in the Great War, during the 1930s he would flee first to Vienna and then (in 1938, under attack from the Nazis for his publications on race and nationality) with his family to London -- where in 1946 he would become a British citizen.~One last note: "Captain Hay Doyle," known as "Duff," was Doyle's 14-years-younger brother John Francis Innes Hay Doyle; he survived service in China in 1900 and South Africa in 1902, and would survive the Great War -- only to die in February 1919 in the Spanish Flu epidemic (mere weeks after ACD's son Kingsley, of the same cause).~The letter is in fine condition (just a little light foxing); the use of his initials, rather than full signature, is an indication of how close Doyle and Smith were.

        Emma S. Doughten's European Trip, April 1901 - September 1902

      - Presented in two albums, the travels of an unaccompanied female on a European tour. In early 1901 Emma Doughten began her European Tour, traveling mostly by rail, she visited numerous countries, such as Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, England and Scotland. Emma narrates every portion of her trip with exacting, detailed, entries of the sites she sees and the people she meets. From the extolling on the history of each art piece, cathedral, palace, or chateau she visited to her interactions with fellow travelers or the townsfolk she met. Often, she would spend pages writing all she learned while visiting the historic site of the day. Along with her written journal entries, in order to illustrate the numerous sites visited, are pasted-in postcards. From the view of the Louvre from across the Seine in Paris to the various small towns she visited in the high Alps in Switzerland. Starting her journey in Spain, she visited various locations, such as Ibiza and Gibraltar. Continuing on to Austria she visited Innsbruck and Vienna and saw such sites as the Hofburg Imperial Palace and the Tyrolean State Museum. A short train ride later she spent some time Germany visiting the various sights in Munich and Dresden. Making her way to Switzerland and she traveled on the Axenstrasse Highway, a picturesque road built along steep cliffs on the east side of the Lake Lucerne. The views along this throughway are spectacular as it weaves through the many rock fall galleries and tunnels along its route. From there Emma traveled on the Gotthard Railway, a Swiss trans-alpine railway that runs from northern Switzerland all the way to the country's boarder with Italy. The railroad takes its passengers through the Alps by means of the Gotthard Tunnel, making several stops along the way to the tourist towns that are scattered throughout the Alps. Along the way, Emma also saw the Rhonegletscher (otherwise known as the Rhone Glacier, located in the Swiss Alps and is the source of the Rhône River and one of the primary contributors to Lake Geneva), Le Pont Suspendu (a large suspension bridge which at its inauguration in 1834, it became, for a time, the longest suspension bridge in the world, as well as one of the first to use wireline cables instead of chains. It was destroyed in 1923 to make way for the Zaehringen bridge.), and Matterhorn (a mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy, it's a huge and near-symmetrical pyramidal peak and it is one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe). Eventually making her way into Italy, Emma spent some time along Lake Maggiore; a long, thin, lake on the south side of the Alps that is noted for its picturesque surroundings of greenery-filled mountains, before traveling on to some of the more well-known Italian tourist destinations. Such as Milan, Florence, Sienna, Rome, Assisi, and Pompeii. One lesser known spot Emma visited was Bussana Vecchia, a ghost town in Liguria, Italy, that had been abandoned by its citizens due to an earthquake in 1887. From there she continued onto France, stopping in Paris and visiting all the classic sites: The Louvre, The Vendome Column, Notre Dame, The Arc de Triumph, Place Charles de Gaulle, and Saint-Jacques Tower. Leaving Paris, Emma visited almost too many French Chateaux to be named, though some highlights are the Chateau de Cheverny, the royal Château de Chambord, and the royal Château de Blois. Emma continued on through the coast of Brittany and Normandy visiting such sites as the Carnac stones (an exceptionally dense collection of megalithic sites around the village of Carnac in Brittany), and Mont-Saint-Michel (an island fort that houses several strategic fortifications since ancient times). Using the French port city of Calais, Emma traveled across the English Channel to the cliff top town of Dover. There she started her last leg of her journey, exploring the British Isles. Traveling north through England,

        Just So Stories For Little Children

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1902. With illustrations by the author. Large octavo. Original red pictorial cloth, titles to spine and front cover in black and white. With 22 plates by the author. Spine slightly faded, slight marking to covers, occasional light marking to contents. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, in the second issue binding, of Kipling's famous collection of 12 stories and 12 poems including "How the Camel Got His Hump" and "How the Leopard Got His Spots". The white blocking to the spine and boards famously failed to adhere on the first issue binding, with the result that most copies now lack significant portions of it; the paint formula was changed for the present issue.

        Amerikanskie milliardery. S 16 portretami i prilozheniem stat'i Andr'iu Karnegi: Predubezhdeniia protiv trestov. Perevod s frantsuzskago pod redaksiei A. E. Ianovskago [American billionaires. With sixteen portraits and, as a supplement, Andre Carnegie's essay, "Popular Illusions about Trusts." Translated from the French and edited by A. E. Ianovskii]

      St. Petersburg: XX Vek, 1902. Octavo (18.3 × 12.3 cm). Contemporary beige cloth; [4], 379 pp. Sixteen photographic portraits on separate leaves; numerous decorative head pieces and vignettes. Original wrappers perished; stamp of a non-existing lending library to title; else about very good. First and only edition of this sensationalist account of the life of American billionaires of the Gilded Age, supposedly written by a French journalist with exclusive access to the likes of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, and Morgan. The supposed author -- according to the preface a former contributor to the journal 'Revue de revues' -- is likely a spurious pseudonym, as we have been unable to trace any French original with this title. The goal of the book is to expose the sheer power and inherent corruptness of the American financial and industrial elites, as demonstrated through descriptions of their business practices, but also their daily lives and intrigues. Chapters are devoted to the "first four hundred" and their families; to the daily life and psychology of the wives and daughters of America's richest; to their eccentricities and other gossip; as well as to their children and the system of lineage. Translated and edited by Abel' E. Ianovskii. The author is particularly critical of the practice of holding companies, or trusts, and the translator has here appended his Russian translation of Andrew Carnegie's essay, "Popular Illusions about Trusts" ("Predubezhdeniia protiv trestov"). Carnegie himself is the subject of the short chapter, "The Steel King." Complete, with all sixteen portraits. Rare; not traced through KVK or OCLC.

        Souvenir Acis & Galatea Masque of Love As Produced At the Great Queen Street Theatre, March 10th, 1902

      J. J. Waddington. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1902. Softcover. 8vo 8" - 9" tall; Beautiful condition except for paper covers which are missing one corner and taped at spine. Pages are very good. This from the library of a family member Elena Gordon Craig whose name is inscribed on the front blank page. 19 plates by Edward Gordon Craig, one tipped-in on brown paper. First edition, first impression of this souvenir booklet which accompanied Gordon Craig's second entrance into theatre design, the 1902 Purcell Operatic Society production of Acis and Galatea. Craig, who was the son of the great actress Ellen Terry, grew up in the theatre and acted from the time he was a child. In the1890s he became friends with the artists James Pryde and William Nicholson who suggested he that he take up wood engraving. This spontaneous, affectionate approach to creativity was an aspect of his character that articulated his entire life, embracing also the tone of his writing and his theatre design" (ODNB). Though he had retired from acting in 1897, Craig still longed for the stage, and was able to combine his theatrical and artistic passions by working as a theatre designer. "His first production, Dido and Aeneas (1900) for the Purcell Society at the Hampstead Conservatoire, was revolutionary This production was followed by Handel's Acis and Galatea (1902) at the Great Queen Street Theatre, described by Granville Barker as 'an ever-shifting maze of colour, form, and motion'. Haldane McFall was supposed to have commented that the colors were good enough to eat. This copy includes 19 plates of theatre and costume designs by Gordon Craig from the beginning of his legendary career as a theatre designer .
