        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 .

Volume II with photogravure frontispiece - the Attack on Peiwar Kotal - and a similar portrait, title page vignette, three steel engraved and six half-tone plates, three folding maps and a folding panorama.

The result. is that he shows love and respect for India and things Indian?; Jain 974; Riddick 401. A runaway bestseller, Roberts' memoirs ran to eight editions in the first month of publication and evidently to thirty-five in four years. This copy inscribed on the half-title of Volume I, ?Mrs. Lucas-Tooth with kindest regards and best wishes from the Author F.M. Lord Roberts, June 1908.? The recipient was most likely Everild Lucas-Tooth, daughter of Sir Edward Durand and wife of Selwyn Lucas Lucas-Tooth. Copies of Roberts's memoirs rarely turn up so fully inscribed. A highly attractive set.

        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.

Nach seinem Studium "ging Richard Böklen nach Berlin zu Ernst von Ihne, wo er unter anderem beim Bau des Schlosses Friedrichshof, beim Umbau des Berliner Schlosses und am Wettbewerbsentwurf für das Kaiser-Wilhelm-Nationaldenkmal mitarbeitete. In dieser Zeit begegnete er Carl Feil, mit dem er 1895 ein gemeinsames Architekturbüro in der Stuttgarter Eberhardstraße eröffnete (als „Bureau für Architektur und Kunstgewerbe"). . Im Jahr 1896 wurde Richard Böklen als Regierungsbaumeister (Assessor in der staatlichen Bauverwaltung) bei der Königlichen Domänendirektion in Stuttgart beschäftigt. 1901 wurde er zum Professor an der Baugewerkschule Stuttgart ernannt. Als freischaffender Architekt (zusammen mit Carl Feil) wie auch als Professor der Baugewerkschule Stuttgart baute Richard Böklen insgesamt sieben Kirchen in Württemberg, darunter die Lutherkirche in Cannstatt, außerdem Arbeitersiedlungen in Stuttgart. Einer seiner Schüler war Gustav Epple, der spätere Gründer des Bauunternehmens Epple. Ende der 1920er Jahre wurde das Büro Böklen und Feil geschlossen, so dass sich Böklen nur noch seiner Tätigkeit als Dozent widmete" (Wikipedia Abruf vom 25.03.2016). - Leicht gebräunt und fleckig. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse 7 - A-8010 Graz - +43 316 829552 *** /// *** Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 3000 Fol.

      [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.
