        The Raven by Quarles. Done Into Print & Decorated by Robert H. Perdue. With an Introduction by Joseph Leon Gobeille.

      Done Into Print & Decorated by Robert H. Perdue at Cleveland, Ohio, MCM & II. "This edition is limited to ninety three signed copies of which this is number 19 [signed]: Robert H. Perdue". 1902 - 7 7/8 inches x 10 1/2 in., signed and numbered limitation page with onionskin/tissue paper overlay, printed in red-brown; design title-page with the overlay; two page introduction by Joseph Leon Gobeille; six design border illustrations printed in black with the red-brown printed border illustrations on onionskin paper overlays loosely inserted; with printed text of The Raven; copyright page. 27 pp. Printed on thin, japan vellum type paper, with the overlays printed on a very thin tissue type paper; sewn into cream-colored paper card covers, with plain, thin japan vellum type paper wrappers over the covers. Outer covers show some age-related tanning, chipping to the paper wrapper of the spine; the overlays to the limitation page and title-page show some slight edge wear with dusting, very light creases. Each overlay is meant to lay flat, facing the black illustration. Very scarce illustrated item, done in the Art Nouveau style, with some Aubrey Beardsley-like details; and produced in Cleveland Ohio. A few words from the introduction, written by a book collector and early member of the Rowfant Club, Joseph Leon Gobeille: Mr. Robert Hartley Perdue, while claiming no extraordinary knowledge of POEsy, is an ardent admirer of these children of mystery [Poe's poems]. In his leisure hours he has made a pen-and-ink folio of the "Raven", using "Quarles's" original lines as a foundation for his labours. Later he made four replicas for bibliophile friends. Mr. Perdue drew his borders as Fancy and Imagination dictated, and incidently answered some questions which were not truly met by Dore, or any other of our poet's distinguished illustrators. I mention one. How could the shadow of the raven fall upon the floor as pictured by the artists? The lamp is on the table, the bird on the bust of Pallas high above the point of light. Mr. Perdue solves the problem-for his light is in the hall beyond, shining obliquely down through the transom and naturally throws the shadow on the floor where Poe saw it. [-] At the solicitation of the writer, who has in his library No. 1 of the original folios, Mr. Perdue consented to the reproduction of his drawings in a different size. With him it has been a labour of pleasure and study; without emoulument or honorarium, and every bibliophile and lover of Poe will give him cheer and compliment for his consent to publish his embellishments for the best loved and most characterictic of Poe's poems.

        The Cruise of the Dazzler (St. Nicholas Magazine for Young Folks, Volume XXIX, Number 9)

      The Century Company, Union Square, New York 1902 - In Very Good+ condition. Oversized cream-colored wraps printed in orange and black. Pps. 770 - 863 of volume XXIX. This magazine is in excellent, clean condition with a few faint specks and with modest wear at the spine-ends and at the edges of the wraps. The text is quite clean and bright; no previous ownership markings. The binding is sound. Published in July of 1902, this magazine which includes an abridgement of 'The Cruise of the Dazzler,' (twenty-eight pages with double-columns of text), actually preceeded the hardcover first edition by three months (Century would publish the book in October of that year under the St. Nicholas books imprint). This is part of the magazine's series of long-stories-complete-in-one-issue. A rare and intriguing item for the London collector, being the first publication of his first novel (following early collections of short stories). ".Joe Bronson, dissatisfied and unhappy in school, decides to run away to sea. He falls in with the infamous 'bay pirates,' those some-time fishermen and oyster dredgers who, in reality, used their boats as convenient transport to rob business along the San Francisco bay at the turn of the century. It is readily and quite soon apparent to Joe that perhaps school isn't quite so bad after all; and after befriending 'Frisco Kid,' another young member of the crew they finally are able to cast off the shackles to 'French Pete,' the captain of the Dazzler and restart their lives."

        The Adventures of Uncle Lubin

      London - Grant Richards 1902 - In original pictorial green cloth boards. This is the first edition of this delightful work illustrated with colour frontispiece and many further black and whiteplates and illustrations throughout. The binding is a little tired but this is nontheless a hightly collectable and valuable title. Uncle Lubin is Heath Robinson's first important work and is the hardest to find of all his works. It is famous for both being difficult to find and in generally poor condition. It's not too bad at all here, though the binding needs some expert strengthening, though, crucially, everything including the important illustrated endpapersare present and original. William Heath Robinson (May 31, 1872 September 13, 1944) was an English cartoonist and illustrator, who signed himself W. Heath Robinson. He is best known for drawings of eccentric machines and Heath Robinson has entered the language as a description of any unnecessarily complex and implausible contraption. Born into a family of artists in Islington, London, his early career was as a book illustrator, for example in Hans Christian Andersen's Danish Fairy Tales and Legends (1897); The Arabian Nights, (1899); Tales From Shakespeare (1902), and Twelfth Night (1908), Andersen's Fairy Tales (1913), A Midsummer Night's Dream (1914), Charles Kingsley's The Water Babies (1915), and Walter de la Mare's Peacock Pie (1916). In the course of this however, he also wrote and illustrated two children's books, The Adventures of Uncle Lubin (1902), and Bill the Minder (1912); these are regarded as the start of his career in the depiction of unlikely machines. During the First World War he drew large numbers of cartoons, collected as Some Frightful War Pictures (1915), Hunlikely! (1916), and Flypapers (1919), depicting ever-more-unlikely secret weapons being used by the combatants. Condition: The binding is loose throughout with many gatherings detaching from each other. Both covers are attached although they, along with the spine, are holding to the text block very loosely by a couple of cords only. There is some minor wear to the extremities including some rubbing to the edges and bumping to the corners and top and tail of the spine. The cloth is little torn along the hinges. Internally the book is generally clean and bright apart from some mild spots in places and some handling marks. There is a copperplate signature to the front illustrated endpaper.

Outdoor wedding with musicians. Image: 40.5 x 54.2 cm (16" x 21.25") Anatoli (Tankhum) Lvovich Kaplan was born December 26, 1902 in the small town of Rogachev in Belarus and died in 1980 in Leningrad (now St. Peterburg). He was a Russian Jewish painter, sculptor and printmaker. His prints are inspired by Jewish tradition and Russian folklore. An emphasis on decorative elements imbues many of his works with a fairy tale-like quality. Kaplan caught the atmosphere of the Jewish Shtetl with simplicity and humor and succeeded in conveying the poetic mood of the literary sources. See Enc. Judaica, vol 10, col. 748: Kaplan¿s catalogue of the Bezalel National Museum, Jerusalem, 1962. Kaplan one was one of six children; his father was a butcher in Rogachev which was at that time within the Jewish Pale of Settlement in Russia. His background was therefore somewhat similar to that of Marc Chagall, born a generation earlier in 1887, and although their lives were very different, their art has much in common. The shtetl figures in many of Kaplan's paintings - autobiographical references are very clear in 'The Butcher's Shop' (1972) and 'Tailor's Shops' (1975) and in the many illustrations which he was to create to the works of Sholom Aleichem. Around 1922 Kaplan came to Leningrad, where he was to base his career for the rest of his life, although he often revisited the towns of his childhood. He graduated in 1927 from the Russian Academy of Arts there. He tried various kinds of art, such as drawing, book illustrations, and in the 1930s he became associated with a group of artists and lithographers in Leningrad (Petrograd / St. Petersburg), which had been instructed to prepare a series of works dedicated to the remote Jewish Autonomous Oblast, being created by Stalin in the hope of resettling Russia's Jewish population in a remote area in the Far East of the country. Here Kaplan learnt and took to the skills of printmaking, developing many individual techniques. His first cycle of prints (1937-1940) was entitled 'Kasrilevka' (the name of the village invented by Sholom Aleichem). During the war Kaplan was at first evacuated to the Urals, but returned to Leningrad in 1944. At one time he was supervisor of design in a glassware factory and this gave rise to his interest in the third dimensional work, which was manifested later in in ceramics and sculptures. From the 1950s onwards Kaplan's artworks concentrated on Jewish themes, despite constant and often serious opposition and obstruction from the Soviet cultural authorities. Amongst these works were his cover and illustrations to the 'Jewish Folksongs' of Dmitri Shostakovich, illustrations to Shalom Aleichem's Tevye the Milkman and 'The Enchanted Tailor', and a series of lithographs, printed in London in 1961, depicting the Passover song Khad Gadya. A major retrospective exhibition of Kaplan's work was held at the Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, in 1995. Other major exhibitions have been held in New York (1992), London, Amsterdam, Jerusalem etc.

        Rooster in Rain

      New York:, undated [1902].. Fine. Fine condition. Original Charcoal, and ink on paper. Image: 7 1/2 x 12 5/8 inches. Sheet: 10 x 15 1/2 inches. Elegantly custom framed in Ecru rag board with gilt decoration, one inch neoclassical silver moulding . Dimensions: 19 5/8 x 25 5/8 inches.Executed with charcoal and ink on paper- Charles Livingston Bull's preferred medium- an animated scene of a glaring Rooster under splashing water spout amidst plummeting raindrops. The supreme American Naturalist artist Charles Livingston Bull (1874- 1932) was intrigued by the pathos and elegance found in the tradition of Japanese wood block prints; qualities which are here expressed by the animated nature of the scene. Any decorative elements in the design give way to a heightened level of sensual expression and refinement. In his excellent essay for the Glenbow Museum Peter White states: With Bull's evident stylistic debt to art of Japan, it is tempting to link him as well with the spirit of Kacho-ga, Japanese nature art. In Kacho-ga, nature is not thought of as an objective reality but as a subjective reflection of the artist's own mind. The thing depicted is less important in itself than it is as a means through which the artist gives vent to his emotions.

        JUST SO STORIES for Little Children

      1902 - Illustrated by the Author. London: Macmillan and Co., 1902. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in black and white. First Edition of Kipling's famous collection of twelve tales (with poems), such as "How the Camel got his Hump," "How the Leopard got his Spots" and "How the Alphabet was Made." Kipling himself did the 22 full-page illustrations.~As Stewart points out, the covers of the earliest copies bound were decorated with a white pigment that readily flaked off; subsequent copies bound used a new ink that adhered properly. This is therefore one of the few instances in which collectors do not prefer the earliest state -- as such copies are identifiable only by the loss of much of the pictorial cover design. In any event, on this copy the white pigment has adhered properly over the years.~This is a handsome copy, fine except for a little foxing on the endpapers only. Richards A181; Stewart 260.

Jahrhunderts hatte es eine liberale Ausrichtung. Unter dem zunehmenden Einfluß der Christlichsozialen um Karl Lueger wurde der Kikeriki scharf antisemitisch: "... bewegte sich recht konstant auf einer antisemitische Linie, die viele antijudaistische Vorurteile weiterführt, der er [der Kikeriki] zunächst einen österreich-souveränen Astrich geben möchte, indem er die paramilitärische Heimwehr favorisiert. ... Insbesondere beim Kikeriki erzeugt die antijüdische Karikatur ein kämpferisches Klima, in dem es legitim erscheint, sich gegen die Christenverfolgung durch die als jüdisch Markierten zu wehren... " (Zitat Schäfer, Vermessen - Gezeichnet - Verlacht. (2004) S. 55 und S. 90).[Die von uns gezeigte Abbildung zeigt eine Hetzkarikatur von Gustav Mahler].

        THE WORKS OF ROBERT G. INGERSOLL. "The destroyer of weeds, thistles and thorns is a benefactor, whether he soweth grain or not"

      The Dresden Publishing Co./C. P. Farrell, New York 1902 - Twelve octavo (6" x 9") volumes attractively bound in 3/4 green morocco leather and marbled boards with gilt rules, the spine with five raised bands and four floral gilt decorations with red morocco onlays for the petals. Each volume is illustrated with a frontispiece, mostly portraits, with the first volume also containing a hand-colored title page and a check SIGNED by the author bound in. Each volume is copy #2 of a limited edition of 250 copies. Ingersoll was a popular orator who spoke on many subjects, his favorite being agnosticism, and he often poked fun at religious belief. He was known in his time as "the great agnostic" and a champion in his time for civil rights, women’s reproductive freedom, and limiting the role of religion in government. Ingersoll enjoyed a friendship with the poet Walt Whitman, who considered Ingersoll the greatest orator of his time: "It should not be surprising that I am drawn to Ingersoll, for he is Leaves of Grass. He lives, embodies, the individuality, I preach. I see in Bob [Ingersoll] the noblest specimen—American-flavored—pure out of the soil, spreading, giving, demanding light." Ingersoll delivered the eulogy at the poet's funeral in 1892. Light wear to some corners, a nick here and there. About Fine with a handsome shelf appearance [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A Persian Pearl and Other Essays, Inscribed by Darrow to Rosalind.

      1902 - Inscribed by Darrow to British Actress Rosalinde Fuller Darrow, Clarence [1857-1938]. A Persian Pearl and Other Essays. Chicago: C.L. Ricketts (Lakeside Press colophon), 1902. 160, [1] pp. Quarter cloth over patterned paper boards, gilt title to spine, top edge gilt, deckle fore and bottom edges. Light soiling, some wear to spine ends and corners, author inscription to front free endpaper. Light toning to text, internally clean. A nice copy with an interesting association. * Second edition. The inscription reads "To Rosalyn [sic] Fuller/ from/ Clarence Darrow/ Feby 9th 1917." A Persian Pearl was Darrow's first book and the cornerstone of any Darrow collection. It consists of five essays. "A Persian Pearl" is an appreciation of Omar Khayyam's Rubaiyat. The other essays discuss Walt Whitman, Robert Burns, realism in literature and art and the importance of facing up to past mistakes without fear or shame. Fuller [1892-1982], a distinguished British actress, was famous for her portrayal of Ophelia to John Barrymore's celebrated Hamlet on Broadway in 1922 and continued to perform into the 1970s. She also has a footnote in literary history for her brief affair with F. Scott Fitzgerald. Some scholars believe she was the model for Marcia, the bold chorus girl in "Head and Shoulders," a story later included in Flappers and Philosophers (1920).

        THE TAILOR OF GLOUCESTER

      Strangeways 1902 - 1st 1902. Nearly fine condition with no wrapper. This is the privately printed edition of the Tailor of Gloucester, of which only 500 copies were published. The book is in small format with pink paperboards with a line drawing of three mice sewing on the front cover. The book has a colour frontispiece and 15 colour plates. Beatrix Potter began to write her picture letters for children at the age of 26 and these were to become the basis for her books. The story of the Tailor of Gloucester was first told in a letter from Beatrix to Freda Moore, daughter of her former governess, Annie Carter. Having had her story of Peter Rabbit initially rejected by at least six publishers before Warnes agreed to publish it, Beatrix decided that she would not show her new little book to Warnes. She thought that they would either not want to publish a second book so soon, or that they may want to alter it or omit the nursery rhymes, or otherwise disapprove of what she now felt was "her mouse book". So she returned to Strangeways, the original printers and engravers of Peter Rabbit, and paid herself for a coloured private edition of 500 copies. The books differs considerably from the edition later published Warnes. It is longer, the pictures are not all the same and it contains many more jingles and nursery rhymes, sung by the rats and mice of Gloucester on Christmas Eve. Of all her books The Tailor of Gloucester remained Beatrix Potter's own favourite. Very slightly browning to covers in places. Top corner very slightly worn. Very light foxing to endpapers. Contents fine. A superb copy of this rare book. Housed in custom-made drop-back box. [S] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Manuscript]: "The Harvard Base Ball Season of 1902" in Harvard Graduates' Magazine

      1902 - Seven pages Signed at the conclusion by Barrett Wendell of the class of '77, undated but presumably 1902. A little soiling and finger smudging (probably by typesetters), else about fine. Each page lightly rubberstamped with the name of *Harvard Graduates' Magazine* where we assume it appeared. The team's season was marred by injuries and disqualifications of players but with the help of Boston's Cy Young, who worked with the pitchers, and "Wee Willie" Keeler of Brooklyn, who worked with the hitters, the team went 21-3. Wendell was an early contributor to the *Harvard Lampoon* and went on to become an important educator. His course in English Composition at Harvard was an influence on a great many writers, and the textbook that he developed was the standard college text for decades. He is credited with being the first Harvard Professor to offer American Literature as an object of systematic historical and critical study. Baseball manuscripts of this vintage are uncommon.

        (Novel): Diane, Priestess of Haiti, in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine, LXIX, April 1902

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott. 1902. First. First, and apparently only edition. Front wrap detached, and chipped at the bottom corner, as are the edges of the first two pages (both of ads), last page of the novel has a short tear and small chip, as do a few of the following pages, else a sound and readable, good or better copy. This issue contains the only appearance of this complete novel by an African-American author. The novel features a separate title page, prints the author's name and title on the spine, and takes up a significant portion of the magazine (80 of the issue's 128 pages, with the remainder mostly comprising advertisements). Durham (1861-1919), born in Pennsylvania, was the assistant editor of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin. In 1891 he was named U.S. Charge d'Affaires to Santo Domingo and U.S. Minister to Haiti, an office that he served until 1893. This novel was not published elsewhere to our knowledge. Individual issues of this magazine are rare -- we have never seen another example of this issue offered for sale. .

        Fox and Hare

      New York:, undated [1902].. Fine. Fine condition. Original Charcoal and ink on paper. Image and sheet size : 12 1/4 x 9 3/4 inches. Elegantly custom framed in Ecru rag board with gilt decoration, one inch neoclassical silver moulding. Dimensions: 21 5/8 x 19 5/8 inches. Executed in charcoal and ink on paper- Charles Livingston Bull's preferred medium- On a rocky outcropping set above sinuous trees, a crouching Fox spies on two unsuspecting Hare below. & It is evident in this charged scene of the intended hunt set in a sinuously treed landscape Bull owes a debt to the ephemerally fluid nature of the English Art Nouveau, and reflective of the work of Aubrey Beardsley (1872 - 1898)- a clear inspiration to Bull. & Nonetheless- this drawing could quite possibly have been a composition intended for Andrews Wilkinson's Plantation Stories of Old Louisiana. It was not unusual for Bull to create far more compositions than were used for hundreds of stories he illustrated. Yet as was Bull's habit, these original drawings were often given to the author of the work- or the editor and were seldom seen afterwards. &
