        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).

      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. &

Knappe, jedoch spannende Korrespondenz mit dem Psychologen und Philosophen William Stern (1871-1938) in Breslau: "[.] Für diesen Mittw[och] haben wir, ohne daß die anderen Herren etwas davon ahnen, einen ganz kurzen Wortwechsel mit Handgemenge präpariert; es sollen dann in 8 Tagen (mit einem Stenographen) die Zeugen vernommen werden. - Mir kommt es darauf an, selbst etwas über die Arbeitsmethode durch eigene Erfahrung zu lernen, u. die Leute zu interessieren, damit Sie für Ihren Vortrag den Boden vorbereitet finden [.]". - An besagtem Mittwoch, dem 4. Dezember 1901, sollte dann auch der "Wortwechsel mit Handgemenge" stattfinden: Während Liszts Seminar richtete einer der Teilnehmer eine Frage an Liszt, die von einem anderen Zuhörer unhöflich quittiert wurde, woraufhin der erste eine Pistole zog und sie auf diesen richtete. Liszt eilte hinzu und schlug dem Schützen auf den Arm, dieser verriß die Pistole und auf Höhe der Herzgegend seines Kontrahenten löste sich ein Schuß. - Der ganze Vorfall wurde freilich kurz nach seinem Ende aufgeklärt und die "Zeugen" wurden gebeten, ihre Aussagen tls. schriftlich und tls. mündlich zu Protokoll zu geben, einige noch am selben Abend oder am Tag darauf, andere eine Woche später und wieder andere erst fünf Wochen nach dem Zwischenfall. Wie von Stern, dem Initiator dieses und anderer psychologischer Experimente, erwartet, wichen die einzelnen Aussagen stark voneinander ab: Keiner der Zeugen konnte sich an alle der in 15 Einzelheiten zerlegte Ereigniskette erinnern, die Fehlerrate lag zwischen 27 und 80 Prozent. - Franz von Liszt, der um vierzig Jahre jüngere Cousin des Komponisten Franz Liszt, begründete seinen Rang als Strafrechtsdogmatiker mit dem erstmals 1881 erschienenen "Lehrbuch des deutschen Reichsstrafrechts", das später zum Standardwerk des Strafrechts wurde. Über die Vielzahl seiner Veröffentlichungen hinaus wirkte er vor allem durch die gemeinsam mit Adolf Dochow begründete "Zeitschrift für die gesamte Strafrechtswissenschaft", durch die von ihm gepflogene Gesprächsrunde des "Kriminalistischen Seminars", dem eine ganze Generation deutscher Strafrechtslehrer entstammte, und durch die gemeinsam mit Adolphe Prins und Gerard Anton van Hamel gegründete "Internationale Kriminalistische Vereinigung". - William Stern war Gründer des Instituts für Angewandte Psychologie in Berlin, Mitherausgeber der "Zeitschrift für Angewandte Psychologie" und Professor für Psychologie in Breslau und Hamburg sowie nach seiner Emigration 1933 an der Duke University in Durham. Er "zählt zu den Pionieren der neueren Psychologie. Schwerpunkte seiner Forschung waren die Kinder- und Jugendpsychologie, die angewandte Psychologie und die von ihm begründete differentielle Psychologie" (DBE). Auf Stern geht auch u. a. die Idee des Intelligenzquotienten zurück. - Der Brief v. 26. II. [1902] auf einem an Liszt gerichteten Schreiben des Juristen Paul Schellhas (1859-1908) über den Stand der Dinge von Sterns "in Aussicht genommener Anleitung zur Aufstellung experimentalpsychologischer Versuche über Zeugenaussagen im Seminar Ew. Hochwohlgeboren" (dat. Rixdorf-Berlin [heute Berlin-Neukölln], 25. II. 1902, 2 SS.). - Der Br. v. 30. XI. 1901 auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Otherwise an excellent copy, with the gilt bright and fresh. The Hound of the Baskervilles "was based on an idea given to [Doyle] by Bertram Fletcher Robinson, who was a nephew of Sir John Robinson and a correspondent for the Daily Express during the Boer War. The two men struck up a friendship when travelling back on the same ship from Cape Town. They spent four days together on a golfing holiday at Cromer in March 1901, and it was then that Robinson mentioned the legend (possibly of the Black Hound of Hergest associated with the Vaughan family of Hergest Court in Herefordshire). Doyle told his mother: ‘Fletcher Robinson came here with me and we are going to do a small book together "The Hound of the Baskervilles"—a real creeper’ The serial publication was an unprecedented success. It was the only occasion in the magazine’s history that a seventh printing was needed to meet the demand, and the queues at the publisher’s offices and throughout the country were extraordinary" (Green and Gibson, p. 130).Green and Gibson A26a.
