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.

        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 Harpers' publications" An important, unpublished letter in which Conrad discusses the recent publication of "Typhoon;" expresses dismay with its American publisher Putnam; mentions other works in progress;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.

      1902. Hi, This lot is an 1902 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the seventh year of the hardback and a year I have found hard to find recently, especially in this condition. The front board is very clean with excellent, extremely bright gilt, one tiny mark to the top, the rear board is near perfect and the spine gilt is very bright and original. The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns in top condition and very bright yellow. The photoplate is very good and internally a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. The only downside and it is a bit picky is there is a tiny indentation to the edge of the rear board where a band has been around it. A rare Wisden in superb condition (++) and a very nice price.

        BUFFALO BILL'S WILD WEST AND CONGRESS OF ROUGH RIDERS OF THE WORLD

      [London: Partington, 1902. [4],xiv,[3]-64,[xv]-xviii pp. Quarto. Original color pictorial wrappers. Wrappers edgeworn, chipped along spine. Text lightly tanned. In fair condition. Designated "10th Edition" on the titlepage. A program for Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, likely produced to coincide with the show's 1903 tour of Europe. All the advertisements are for British products, and the price of the program is six pence. The show performed at the Olympia Theatre, and the floor plan for the arena is given, as are instructions for travelling to the venue by rail. Most of the text is taken up by biographical information on Buffalo Bill and tales of thrills in the American West, but the official program for the British production is also given. The show began with the Star Spangled Banner and a procession by the "Rough Riders of the World" (led by Cody on horseback), followed by a Pony Express rider, "Western Prairie Girls," assorted Indians, cavalry veterans, and more, until finally Cody himself took the stage at the end of the first part of the show. The second half featured a recreation of the Battle of San Juan Hill, from the Spanish-American War. The program also takes care to note that "Colonel Cody uses Winchester Rifles and Winchester Ammunition exclusively in all his exhibitions." A nice artifact of the Wild West show at the height of its international fame, complete with Buffalo Bill's personal product endorsements, and a celebration of the American victory over the Spanish in Cuba.

        Lettre autographe signée « après une existence de bonnes

      - s.l. 11 mai 1902, 10x15,5cm, 2 pages sur un feuillet remplié. - preziosa lettera di condoglianze Huysmans, firmato e non si parla di destinazione, in seguito alla morte di Anatole Henri Philippe Marquis de Segur. La lettera è stata probabilmente inviata alla contessa di Guerne, figlia del marchese. 33 linee in inchiostro nero, matita e alcune indicazioni di un bibliografo precedente. Bella elogio funebre ad un caro amico, sicuramente introdotto all'autore dall'abate Mugnier, che ha portato alla fede Huysmans. Membro del Consiglio di Stato e il sindaco di una città in Normandia, il marchese de Segur è anche uno scrittore, un fervente cattolico e ammiratore di S. Francesco di Sales, che ha ispirato diversi saggi biografici. E 'stato anche uno dei membri fondatori delle opere di San Francesco di Sales nel 1857; Huysmans dice nella lettera che il marchese "era veramente il figlio di San Francesco" e lo descrive come "uno dei più potenti anima cordiale che [egli] era [a] conosciuto". Di recente si è tuffato nella fede cattolica per alcuni anni, Huysmans sembra aver ispirato il carattere "la bontà che semplifica tutto e la pietà che rende ogni punto." Il marchese invece anzi la religione al centro della sua vita e la sua opera letteraria - una società che aspira ardentemente Huysmans, dopo la pubblicazione dei suoi romanzi Lungo e la Cattedrale (1895 e 1898). testimonianza struggente di ammirazione per Huysmans per un uomo di fede esemplare. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Précieuse lettre de condoléances signée de Joris-Karl Huysmans, signée et sans mention de destinataire, suite au décès d'Anatole-Henri-Philippe, marquis de Ségur. La lettre a probablement été adressée à la comtesse de Guerne, fille du marquis. Missive autographe de 33 lignes à l'encre noire, et quelques indications au crayon d'un précédent bibliographe. Double feuillet quasiment détaché à l'endroit de la pliure, sans manque de texte. Autre pliure centrale, sans manque de texte. Belle élégie funèbre à un ami proche, sûrement introduit à l'auteur par l'abbé Mugnier, qui avait ramené Huysmans à la foi. Membre du Conseil d'Etat et maire d'une commune de Normandie, le marquis de Ségur fut aussi un écrivain, fervent catholique et admirateur de Saint François de Sales, qui lui inspira plusieurs essais biographiques.

        A History of the American People.

      New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1902. First edition. Octavo, 5 volumes, red cloth, gilt titles to the spine, front panels, contains numerous plates and illustrations. Signed by President Wilson in volume one, "Woodrow Wilson, 31 March, 1905." In near fine condition. "Wilson wanted to enhance the presidency by establishing a direct link to the American people. He thought the president, as their spokesman, should be the preeminent leader of the democratic nation. Long convinced that the British parliamentary government was better than the American constitutional system, he exerted personal influence on the legislative branch in unprecedented ways...The first president to hold regular press conferences, he sought to shape public opinion by managing news from the White House. Moreover, he delivered messages personally to Congress, reviving a practice that George Washington and John Adams had used on a few occasions. From Jefferson through Taft, other U.S. presidents had submitted only written messages" (ANB). As a writer, Wilson "propounded his own frontier thesis to explain American history. Influenced by conversations and correspondence with historian Frederick Jackson Turner, Wilson now credited the frontier, more than the Anglo-Saxon heritage, with the rise of freedom and democracy in the New World" (ANB). "As a lecturer and writer Wilson had a genius for simplification, for the clarification of the complex and the explanation of the relation of things. These qualities he carried into his political speeches and they account in part, at least, for the effect he exercised upon men's minds" (DAB).

        Broadside]: Harvard Illustrated Magazine Out Today

      Harvard Illustrated Magazine, Cambridge 1902 - Broadside. Measuring 8" x 14". Printed in red and yellow on thin card stock. Modest age-toning and three tiny tack holes, near fine. Decorated with a very attractive illustration of the Egyptian goddess Isis, with wings spread over the word "Jan." presumably indicating the January issue. The illustration is signed in print "George Allan England '02" along with two Chinese(?) characters. England attended Harvard University, where he received Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees. However, he is better known as a socialist politician and writer; he was the author of several books of speculative fiction and science fiction, as well as collections of detective stories. His story, "The Thing from - 'Outside'", appeared in the first issue of the first science fiction magazine, Amazing Stories. In his day he was considered one of the closest rivals to Edgar Rice Burroughs. This advertising poster, exhibiting his artistic skill, is presumably very uncommon.

        Carte autographe signée « Ce que je suis rasé par les reporters à propos du centenaire d'Hugo ! »

      - 4 février 1902, 11,5x9cm, Une carte recto-verso. - "Parigi, 4 febbraio 1902 Mi è dispiaciuto il mio caro amico, non vederti! La stufa a malapena a camminare, come si poteva vedere, sono andato a fare una passeggiata sul lungomare. Resta inteso per il pranzo in Crespel Sabato a mezzogiorno e mezzo. Vuoi scrivere a lui, se non avete visto prima. Quello che mi sono rasato dai giornalisti circa il centenario della Hugo! E 'da credere che tutti i giornali e le riviste tutti faranno una questione separata! Cosa ci sarà di defecare sciocchezze [sic] sulle sue spoglie! Un giornalista mi ha detto che stava per visitare Hugo, membri dell'Accademia di Medicina (??? !!) e anche i pittori. Sembra che sarà monumentali, da quel lato. Un Sabato, caro amico e bene a voi Huysmans Dato signora Leclaire sempre più esasperato dalla idea di soggiornare in Ligugé! " - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Belle carte autographe de Joris-Karl Huysmans signée à un ami. 17 lignes à l'encre noire, avec des indications au crayon d'un précédent bibliographe. La missive porte sur le centenaire de la naissance de Victor Hugo. Grand admirateur de l'écrivain, Huysmans est horrifié par l'escalade médiatique qui entoure l'événement et déplore avec véhémence la compétition des journaux qui multiplient leurs panégyriques jusqu'à l'excès.  « Le poêle ne marchant guère » La lettre débute sur l'évocation du froid glacial qui règne dans l'appartement de Huysmans, au 20 de la rue Monsieur. Suivent des arrangements en prévision d'un déjeuner chez le docteur Victor Crespel, son médecin et proche ami. Le ton de la lettre se durcit alors brutalement dans les lignes suivantes, et révèle un Huysmans exaspéré par l'affaire Hugo : « Ce qu'on va déféquer d'imbécillités [sic] sur ses restes ! », s'exclame Huysmans dans la lettre. Il est vrai qu'à elle seule, La Presse propose trente-neuf articles sur Hugo répartis sur 5 jours de publication (!). De nombreux journalistes le démarchent ; il répondra avec réticence au Figaro et à La revue hebdomadaire. Par décret ministériel, des fêtes officielles et une cérémonie au Panthéon le 26 février en commémoration du centenaire avaient été programmées. Huysmans refusa de prendre part au comité d'organisation, et se lamente : « Un reporter m'a avoué qu'il avait été visiter à propos d'Hugo, les membres de l'académie de médecine (???!!) et aussi les peintres ». Les hommages populaires excessifs et les "enquêtes commémoratives" des journalistes le scandalisent, et donnent matière à sa virulente diatribe.  La lettre se termine sur un post-scriptum concernant Mme Leclaire, "de plus en plus exaspérée par l'idée de rester à Ligugé". Le ménage Leclaire s'était installé avec Huysmans dans la commune de Ligugé, près de Poitiers. Fervent converti, Huysmans a fait construire une demeure non loin de l'abbaye bénédictine de Saint Martin, où il se destinait à devenir oblat. Huysmans fut forcé de revenir à Paris l'année précédant la rédaction de cette lettre ; les Leclaire sont quant à eux restés à Ligugé, au plus grand mécontentement de Mme Leclaire. Précieux témoignage de la verve féroce de Huysmans et de son grand respect pour Victor Hugo et sa mémoire. « Paris, 4 février 1902 J'ai regretté, mon cher ami, de ne pas vous voir ! Le poële ne marchant guère, comme vous avez pu le constater, j'étais allé faire une promenade sur les quais. C'est entendu pour le déjeuner chez Crespel samedi, à midi ½. Voulez-vous lui écrire si vous ne le voyez pas avant. Ce que je suis rasé par les reporters à propos du centenaire d'Hugo ! C'est à croire que tous les journaux et toutes les revues vont faire un numéro à part ! Ce qu'on va déféquer d'imbécillités [sic] sur ses restes ! Un reporter m'a avoué qu'il avait été visiter à propos d'Hugo, les membres de l'académie de médecine (???!!) et aussi les peintres. Il paraît que ce sera monumental, de ce côté-là. A Samedi donc, cher ami et bien à vous Huysmans  Vu Mme Leclaire de plus en plus exaspérée par l'idée de rester à Ligugé ! »
