        Life and Labour of the People in London. First Series. [&] Second Series. [&] Third Series. [&] Final Volume.

      1902 - London: McMillan & Co., 1902. First edition of the complete work. 17 vols & map case, original parchment-papered boards, gilt-decorated spines, partially unopened; Series 1 with map case with five coloured folding Poverty maps, illustrated in text with graphs & tables; Series 2 illustrated in text with graphs & tables; Series 3 with 20 coloured folding maps (lettered A-U, although 'I' was not used) and sketch maps in text; 'Final Volume' with coloured folding map in rear pocket. Some spotting of text throughout. A fine set of the three series that made up Booth's socio-economic survey of London, including his famous Poverty map which colour-coded streets according to the degree of wealth of the inhabitants, ranging from black ('Lowest class'), through shades of blue and purple ('Poor', 'Mixed', 'Fairly Comfortable'), to red ('Well to do') and yellow ('Wealthy'). Booth (1840-1916), owner of the Booth Shipping Line, acted in response to an 1886 Pall Mall Gazette article that claimed that 25% of Londoners lived in poverty. Booth regarded this figure as wildly exaggerated, so recruited a team of volunteer researchers (including his cousin Beatrix Potter) to compile an analysis of social conditions based on field visits and interviews with local police, clergy and employers. The First Series of 'Life and Labour' (1889), covering the East End, showed that 35% lived in poverty. The Second Series (1891), covering the rest of the city, showed that no less than 30 per cent of the city's total population could be classed as poor. The Third Series (1902) covered Religious Influences. The 'Final Volume' (also 1902) contained notes on social influences and Conclusions, with a map marking places of worship, public elementary schools and public houses.

        SONGS OF CHILDHOOD

      - [DE LA MARE,WALTER]. SONGS OF CHILDHOOD by Walter Ramal. Lond.: Longmans Green 1902. 12mo, blue cloth stamped in gold, parchment spine, top edge gilt, other edges uncut, 106p., some light soil else near Fine. 1st edition of de la Mare's first book using his pen name of Walter Ramal. The poems are for children of all ages, including Dame Hickory, As Lucy Went a Walking, etc. Illustrated with a gravure frontis by RICHARD DOYLE captioned Under The Dock Leaves. It is interesting to read how Doyle's illustration came to be used. De la Mare's brother in law introduced him to a literary agent who in turn introduced them to Andrew Lang, an advisor to the publisher. When Longman decided to publish de la Mare's book, Lang offered his prized Doyle watercolor for the book. De la Mare felt that if the poems were good enough, one's imagination could provide the pictures, but as a newcomer he accepted the offer. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Tannhauser. A Story of All Time.

      London:Kegan, Paul, Trench and Trubner. 1902 - First edition. One of a run of 500 copies on laid paper [a further 6 copies were printed on vellum]. 4to. Publisher's white linen spine over blue paper covered boards. Slight rubbing to extremities, edge chipping to the white paper title label, some soiling of the white linen, some scuffing to edges and a couple of slight scratches to the front board, not penetrating the paper. A very good copy. Internally clean with light spotting, most noticeable to prelims. Last third or so of pages unopened. A strong handsome copy of a rare piece of Crowley. Legend has it that the Major Therion himself wrote this piece of teutonic drama in a single 67 hour frenzy of composition. It seems to have been met with rather grim critical response at the time, although all agreed that it was a nicely produced volume.: "Such magnificence of paper, print, and margin, that we trust we are right in assuming that he is possessed of material wealth even greater than the wealth of languages, which he displays so profusely throughout the volume. With all these attractions, he nevertheless fails to stir at all deeply. —The Pall Mall Gazette, date unknown." And my personal favourite: " We are not sure that Mr. Aleister Crowley treats life as a sacrament, because we do not understand him. —The Daily Chronicle, date unknown." Comprehensible or not, Mr. Crowley was nothing if not impossible to ignore. A distinguished copy of a scarce work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Watcher by The Threshold

      London, William Blackwood and Sons 1902. - First Edition. 8vo. Pp 136 + [32] catalogue, dated 2/02. Publisher's pictorial blue cloth, titled and ruled in orange and white, top edge trimmed, others uncut. Endpapers a little toned, uncut edges with some spotting. Cloth a little scuffed to extremities, bumped to spine ends, nevertheless clean, strong and attractive. Very good indeed. Booksellers label and Bookplate to front pastedown (of George Waterston of Edinburgh; noted printers and stationers whose company ran successfully from 1752 until 2004, which is not a bad business lifespan) tipped in before prelims is a letter dated 1900 from Buchan to the noted distillery firm of Sandeman's in answer to a query of theirs regarding a character of the same name who featured in "John Burnet of Barns." A splendid and rip-roaring collection of weird and supernatural oddities. A pretty nice copy of a tricky book, lacking most of the usual damage (chipping to the front board decoration, flattening of the spine, fraying, horrendous bumping, possession by demons etc.) and instead being bright, clean and lovely to look at, a claim that cannot be shared by most books of its distinguished vintage. Most copies of the Hound of The Baskervilles (published in the same year) are considerably less well turned out. Packed with stories of lost tribes of Picts, bizarre behaviour by the otherwise respectable and a fair amount of feverishly guzzled brandy for purely medicinal purposes. Blanchard A13.

        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.

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.
