        Photo Album of a Western Vacation in 1902; with later family photos (1905-1920)

      Oblong octavo photo album. Flexible green cloth; "Photographs" in gilt on front cover. Approximately 220 photos, laid down on stiff grey sheets (30 or so are laid in loose). Many have captions written on verso, visible on those few that are loose or partially detached. The photos very in size, from 4.75" x 6.75" to 2.25" x 3.25" with a handful smaller. Most are very good and clear, with a few slightly overexposed. Some 120 of the snapshots show a group of well-dressed ladies and gentlemen on a vacation to Denver, Salt Lake City, and points west in 1902. They travel across the Ohio River and through St. Joseph, Missouri by train to Denver, Colorado. There is a small photo of the State Capitol in Denver, and one of the Brown's Palace Hotel. They take a sightseeing car, ride in horse drawn wagons and on donkeys to "Cave of the Winds," Williams Canyon and Garden of the Gods near Manitou Springs. The group visits Glenwood Springs, Salt Lake City, and Old Faithful at Yellowstone Park. They also tour the Presidio in California where they witness soldiers drilling, then go on to Puget Sound, Tacoma and Spokane. The travelers may have been from Pennsylvania or Maryland, as the later group of family photos (approximately 100) mention Gettysburg and Braddock Heights. .

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire Année complète 1902 EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Bureaux de la Revue, 1902. Fine. Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1902, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding Edition Editor at bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, small gilded iron and double gold mesh queue.Douze January to December 1902. Hedges numbers conservées.Chaque number is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Blum ("The eyes I love"), Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide ("Oscar Wilde"), Ms. Alphonse Daudet, Walt Whitman, founded in etc.Publication 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine belonging to the first wave of small symbolist journals. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular collaborators, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. L'Ermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time like the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] that deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his symbolist spirit, employees are more interested in poetry than fiction. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, believes that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddling the end of the century aesthetics and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1902. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Léon Blum ("Les yeux que j'aime"), Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide ("Oscar Wilde"), Mme Alphonse Daudet, Walt Whitman, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

        The Hound of The Baskervilles: Another Adventure of Sherlock Holmes

      London: George Newnes, 1902 Illustrated by Sidney Paget. First edition, first printing. Publisher's decorative red cloth binding designed by Alfred Garth Jones, with poster-style hound illustration in black and gilt to the front board, Art Nouveau decorative tooling to the front board and spine, lettered in gilt. Very good or better, with some light rubbing to the extremities, some soiling to the spine and boards, bright gilt, spine slightly tender, some light spotting to the page edges and endpapers, bookseller's embossed stamp to the front free endpaper, a few scattered spots to the otherwise clean pages. Green and Gibson A26a. Originally published serially in the Strand Magazine between August 1901 and April 1902, The Hound of the Baskervilles is Doyle's third novel to feature his detective character Sherlock Holmes. Like his previous two Holmes novels, The Hound of the Baskervilles is illustrated with black and white illustrations by Sidney Paget. The author had intended his second Holmes novel, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (1894), which concludes with "The Final Problem," a story that ends with Holmes falling to his death at the Reichenbach Falls after fighting with his arch nemesis Professor Moriarty, to be the final appearance of Sherlock Holmes. After much public demand, Doyle revived his character with The Hound of the Baskervilles, the most popular of the Holmes canon, which purports to be an episode earlier in the detective's career, chronologically prior to "The Final Problem." The story tells of a murder mystery at the Baskerville Hall country house that involves the Baskerville family's superstition surrounding a hellhound myth. The plot was largely inspired by Doyle's golfing holiday at Cromer in Norfolk in the spring of 1901, where he spent time with a young journalist friend named Bertram Fletcher Robinson, who told Doyle a legend about a haunting ghost hound in the moors of Dartmoor. The success of The Hound of the Baskervilles directly contributed to Doyle's resurrection of Holmes in The Return of Sherlock Holmes, in which Doyle explains how the master detective survived such an enormous fall. Alfred Garth Jones (1872-1955) was an English artist, illustrator, and book designer. Known primarily for his woodcuts, pen and ink line drawings, and watercolors, Jones' style is hallmarked by his bold, thick lines and his Art Nouveau aesthetic. Trained in both Manchester and Paris, Jones created many types of book art, including illustrations, bookplates, binding designs, and page decorations.. Illus. by Paget, Sidney; Jones, Alfred Garth. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        L'Aube fraternelle. Manuscrit.

      - L'Aube fraternelle. Manuscrit de 96 ff. in-8, collés sur des feuillets de papier vergé reliés en un vol. in-4, demi-chagrin bleu marine, dos à faux nerfs. (CN26) L'Aube fraternelle d'Émile Moselly (pseudonyme d'Émile Chénin) parut dans le deuxième cahier de la quatrième série des Cahiers de la Quinzaine, le 23 octobre 1902 (intitulé Cahier de la Toussaint). Ces impressions romancées sont présentées comme le journal d'un étudiant effectuant son service militaire, et mort de pneumonie : le cahier trouvé dans son paquetage par le médecin-major contient, en trois parties (L'Arrivée, Au camp, Au fort), le récit sensible - et très certainement autobiographique - d'un temps d'armée au tout début du XXe siècle. Le manuscrit porte des annotations de la main de Péguy, au crayon bleu, destinées à l'imprimeur. Sur quatre feuillets liminaires ont été disposées des pièces d'archives se rapportant à l'ouvrage : un télégramme et trois lettres de Chénin (Moselly) à Charles Péguy et trois lettres au destinataire inconnu. Les enveloppes adressées à Péguy sont conservées. Rappelons que l'auteur, mort très jeune (1870-1918) s'est attaché à décrire dans ses romans les us et coutumes de la Lorraine. Ses archives (manuscrits, épreuves corrigées) ont été données en 2007 à la ville de Nancy et sont déposées à la Bibliothèque municipale de la ville.
