        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.

Boundless Resources: Pastoral, Agricultural, Mineral. Natural Harbors. Navigable Rivers.... With Illustrations, Maps and Copy of the Act of Parliament authorising Construction of Railway

      Adelaide, printed by Hussey and Gillingham for the South Australian Government, 1902. Foolscap folio, [i], 120 pages with 20 numbered illustrations and a full-page frontispiece plus a very large folding colour geological map (in two sections, 660 x 730 mm and 650 x 730 mm) and a very large folding map of Australia (615 x 805 mm, showing the approximate route of the proposed Transcontinental Railway, from Oodnadatta to Pine Creek). Original flush-cut quarter cloth and papered boards lettered in gilt on the front cover; spine a little sunned; corner tips lightly worn; leading edge a little marked; an excellent copy. The full title of the two-part map is 'Geological Map of the Northern Territory of South Australia ... by H.Y.L. Brown FGS, Government Geologist. Physical Geography, compiled by C. Winnecke FRGS, from private and official records. Adelaide, 1898'. Just over half the book (pages 24-84) is devoted to 'Extracts from Journals of Explorers, Travellers, and Others'; in chronological order after John McDouall Stuart come Gosse, Ernest Giles, Barclay, Knight, J.A. Giles, Favenc, Favenc and Crawford, Alfred Giles, Newland, Winnecke, Lindsay, Tietkens, the Horn Expedition (under Winnecke), Davidson, Carrington ... to say nothing of the various pastoralists, overlanders and travellers represented. We have handled a slightly variant copy before; the text of the Transcontinental Railway Act ended at page 120, and it did not have the unnumbered page of text facing the title page (a copy of the announcement, dated 10 December 1902, calling for tenders for construction of the railway). Rare in our experience.

      [At sea] : HMHS "Nubia", April 1902 - July 1903. Eleven shipboard programmes, nine of which are in uniform format, being roneo-printed on both sides of a single foolscap sheet that is folded once to form [4] sides, 205 x 165 mm; one printed on both sides of a half foolscap sheet (i.e. with only 2 sides), 205 x 165 mm; and one printed recto only of a foolscap sheet; the majority of the programmes are dated, the earliest concert being 26 April 1902 and the latest 26 July 1903; two of the programmes, including one for a special Coronation Day concert on 9 August 1902, feature original hand colouring; a few dog-eared corners and some light handling wear, otherwise all examples are complete and in very good condition; [together with] 'Permit to Land according to Martial Law Regulations', roneo printed card, 60 x 90 mm, an improvised shipboard printed document utilising the verso of a lithographed P. & O. passenger card, with manuscript entry 'Mr. S.P. Sabin, 4th Officer', signed by 'H. Andrews', Master, with Sabin's later pencilled annotation 'South African War 1901'; fine; [together with] 'G.D. Jackson Commanding Officer, "Nubia", in Girly-Girly', watercolour on paper, sheet 275 x 190 mm, signed lower right 'S.P. Sabin', with pencilled caption of the artist to lower margin; fine. SS Nubia was a passenger-cargo steamer built for the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company and launched in December 1894. Between 1899 and 1903, during the Second Anglo-Boer War, Nubia was used as a hospital and transport ship, making several return voyages between Southampton and Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town. The present group of extremely scarce ephemeral publications made on board Nubia was saved for posterity by the ship's 4th Officer, S.P. Sabin. The programmes, together with the card and watercolour, were loosely inserted in an album of memorabilia spanning Sabin's career as a P. & O. employee. Provenance: Sabin's complete album was sold by Christie's, London, in 2001; with some items removed, the album was subsequently offered for sale through Swann Galleries, New York, Maps & Atlases, Natural History and Color Plate Books, December 8 2016, lot 391.

        Title THE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE. Edited by William Aldis Wright.

      London: Macmillan 1902 - London and New York: Macmillan and Co., 1902-1905. A Finely Bound Set of Shakespeare SHAKESPEARE, William. William Aldis WRIGHT (editor). The Cambridge Shakespeare. Later edition (revised) of the Cambridge Shakespeare. Nine octavo volumes (8 3/8 x 5 5/8 inches; 213 x 144 mm.). Handsomely bound by Bumpus of Oxford (gilt stamp to the leather on the paste down) in three-quarter green calf ruled in gilt, over green marbled boards. Spines panelled and lettered in gilt with four gilt center tools, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. A fine set. Finely bound volumes in half leather with gilt decoration to the spines, marble paper pastedowns. William Aldis Wright (1831 - 1914), was an English writer and editor. The Works of William Shakespeare (1863-6), edited by William George Clark, with at first W. Aldis Wright and later John Glover as collaborators, was published in nine volumes by Macmillan, but printed at the University Press, so that it became known as the Cambridge Shakespeare. This important edition was based on a thorough collation of the four Folios and of all the Quarto editions of the separate plays, and of subsequent editions and commentaries (preface), so that in textual matters it constitutes a virtual variorum. Prefaces provide accounts of the early textual history of each of the works, and the volumes include the texts of first quartos of Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet, as well as the quartos relating to Henry V, The First Part of the Contention (2 Henry VI), and Richard Duke of York (3 Henry VI). Clark and Wright used the Cambridge edition as the basis for the influential one-volume Globe Shakespeare. Both the Cambridge and the Globe editions were revised in 1891 (The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare).     Condition Report Externally Spine – good condition – gilt titles to spine with some wear and marks to the raised bands. Joints – very good condition – solid. Corners – good condition – gently worn and bumped. Boards – good condition – worn, marbled with some bubbling to the marbled paper where the leather joins the paper. Page edges – good condition – top edge gilt. See above and photos.

        The Tale of Peter Rabbit

      [London privately printed): [London privately printed), February 1902 First (privately printed) edition, second printing. One of 200 copies printed. The first printing was issued in December 1901 in an edition of 250 copies. The Tale of Peter Rabbit was developed from a picture letter sent to Noel Moore on 4 September 1893. A few years later, Beatrix Potter thought it might make a small book. She contacted Moore to see if he had kept the letter and if she might borrow it back; the letter was then expanded into the book. Only when the manuscript had been turned down by several publishers and looked as if it might never be published did Potter turn to this private printing.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("Jph. Conrad"), to James MacArthur of Harper's

      Pent Farm, Stanford near Hythe, 1902. 8 pages. 8vo. On two bifolia of personal stationery; slight toning to first and terminal pages, horizontal fold. 8 pages. 8vo. "I am very sensible to your offer of hospitality in ... Harpers' publications" An important, unpublished letter in which Conrad discusses the recent publication of "Typhoon;" expresses dismay with its American publisher Putnam; mentions other works in progress; and, in offering a long story, initiates what would become a fruitful, decade-long relationship with the American publisher, Harper & Brothers, which saw the publication of Nostromo, The Secret Agent, and several other works. The letter is response to one from Harper's editor James MacArthur, who wrote on October 24, "'Typhoon' has stirred us mightily in the Harper establishment ... had I thought there was any chance of getting you away from Doubleday or McClure, I would have been after you like a shot. There is always an open door for you here, both in magazine and in book form. What about your next book? Could I have a chance at it? ... Meantime, we would like to have anything you can send in the short story...." Conrad's reply in the present letter reads, in part: "My dear MacArthur ... I heard great things of the efficiency of the Harper's House and was glad of it, knowing that you were working under its roof. The publication of Typhoon ... was a matter of arrangement between McClure, Pawling and Putnam with which I had nothing to do. I haven't even seen a single copy of the book, the Putnams not having had the simple civility of sending me one. 3 reviews (2 good and one indifferent) I have seen, but not the Harper's Weekly one. The story with 3 others shall appear here next spring with Heinemann's imprint. I've worked hard clearing up arrears. In a few days the vol of Youth and 2 other stories is coming out from the B[lack]woods House. Thus I have now worked out my engagement to that firm ... That volume shall be published on your side by McClure; but not before next spring. I assure you I am very sensible to your offer of hospitality in the pages of the Harpers' publications. I don't think that an occasional contribution would be any breach of my general understanding with McClure with whom I am on the best of terms. And in time a vol of stories could be made ready in that way for your imprint. But do you care for short stories? My next long book is engaged to McClure and Heine[mann] on a long standing agreement. 2/3ds of it are written. I think it will be done by March ... I think I may have soon a thing of 8000 words. Would that be too long for you?" MacArthur wrote in his reply of November 8, "By all means send along the 8000 words story. It's a bit longish, but then 'it's Conrad' ... Yes we care for a book of short stories if a novel is not forthcoming meantime. Don't let slip any chance of informing me when there will be a volume ready for publication." Thus began a relationship that must have exceeded the expectations of MacArthur and which resulted in the publication by Harper and Brothers of two of Conrad's most important novels--Nostromo (1904, Harper's publishing both the London and American editions) and The Secret Agent (1907)--as well as The Mirror of the Sea (1906); Under Western Eyes (1911); and Some Reminiscences (1912, published in America as A Personal Record). Several short stories also made their first appearance in the pages of Harper's Magazine during that period, including "The Informer" (December 1906); "An Anarchist" (August 1906); and "The Secret Sharer" (1910). Both of MacArthur's letters cited above are included in A Portrait in Letters: Correspondence to and about Conrad (1996), which notes: "Conrad's reply [i.e. the present letter] does not appear to have survived." MacArthur (1866-1909) had corresponded with Conrad in 1900 while he was living in London as the foreign representative of Doubleday, McClure, and Co., which that year published the American edition of Lord Jim. He joined Harper & Brothers when he returned to the U.S. in 1901. From 1894-1900 he had been an editor of The Bookman (New York) for which he had favorably reviewed Almayer's Folly in 1895.
