        [Manuscript Book]: Suitable Reflections on a Pilgrim's Progress from Bachelordom to What's-to-come. A Serio-Ludicro Tragico-Comico Poem... Being a Faithful Account of Excruciating Sorrow and wherein is particularly shown how the spacious corridors, ante-rooms, back porch and pantry of Bachelor's Hall became damp, moist & unpleasant, from the many divers tears that leaked from umbrella racks and cus-pitoons upon Charles Mac Rae's Resignation. [Alternate title]: An Epithalamium for Bachelors: For Twenty Years a Household Remedy. [Cover title]: Needles and Pins, [Needles and Pins], Open the covers, And Trouble Begins

      [No place: The Sign of the Stein. 1902]. First. String-tied wrappers in hand-painted canvas dustwrapper. 32mo. (5" x 4.75"). (16)pp. Light edgewear and rubbing, near fine in near fine dustwrapper with a modest stain on the rear panel. Artist's engraved business card laid in with a manuscript presentation. A wonderful and wonderfully funny hand-lettered and hand-illustrated book by Walter Jack Duncan, celebrating Charles Mac Rae's courtship of his fiancee, his dwindling days of bachelorhood, his impending marriage, and the horrifying spectre of babies, with just the right touch of sophomoric humor one would expect from a talented 21 year old in 1902. Every page is embellished or illustrated in a most pleasing manner reminiscent of W.W. Denslow. Walter Jack Duncan was a noted illustrator born in Indianapolis in 1881. He studied at the Art Students League in New York City with John H. Twachtman, and illustrated for the popular magazines of the period: The Century Magazine, Scribner's, McClure's, and Harper's Monthly Magazine. He also served as an official artist with the A.E.F. during World War I and illustrated many books, including several by Christopher Morley. A lovely production, suitable for reprinting. .

        The Passing

      1902. Original drawing by the great American illustrator, Harrison Fisher This superb drawing of a handsome young woman swinging a golf club is undoubtedly the title page drawing for a story in one of the many illustrated magazines Fisher drew for. Known particularly for his portrayals of beautiful women, Fisher here renders flawlessly the calm concentration of the nicely turned out young golfer, as well as her fashionable, Edwardian attire. Harrison Fisher was one the leading lights in the "golden age of American illustration" that includes Howard Pyle, N.C.Wyeth, Charles Dana Gibson, Maxfield Parrish and others whose book and story illustrations were qualitatively much finer art than the stories were literature. He is best known for nearly twenty consecutive years of Cosmopolitan covers with their intriguing portraits of hopeful young maidens and loving couples. Pen and ink illustration on irregularly shaped paper, two repaired tears upper right, mild soiling.

        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.

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.

A friend supplied the following information on this set of books, "Charles Paul de Kock (May 21, 1793 - April 27, 1871) was a popular French author and librettist of the early to mid nineteenth century, whose works were translated into English and published by The Frederick J. Quinby Company of Boston, MA. There was an edition in 25 volumes, produced between 1902 and 1904, with 1,000 of each volume printed by the Plimpton Press in Norwood, MA. The last few volumes may have been printed elsewhere, as there is no printer's name shown on the copyright page: Frederick J Quinby was frequently sued for unpaid bills, so Plimpton Press may have stopped working for him because of having difficulty in getting paid. Advance notice of this series, without any detail, appeared in Notes and News within the Saturday Review of Books and Art in the New York Times on February 1, 1902. There is variation in the binding of these 1,000 sets. Nos. 77 & 182 are red leather with marbled boards with decorative gilt spines, raised bands five compartments, top edge gilt, 'St. Louis Exposition Edition' at bottom of spine. Nos. 207 & 336 are green cloth with gilt titles on spine. No. 553 is red cloth with paper labels on spine: these labels state "Charles Paul de Kock Book Title Artists' Edition". Nos. 747 & 913 are red cloth with paper labels on spine: these labels simply state "Charles Paul de Kock Author's Edition", black printed book title. "; 0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

Die Paginierung beginnt im Jg. 43 ab Nr.51. - Tlw. alte Restaurierung der Einrisse durch Textilklebeband, Läsuren bzw. Einrisse, Nr. 87 (43.Jg.) mit Abriss und kl. Buchstabenverlust, stärkere Gbrsp., R. angeplatzt, berieben, Buchblock aufgrund des Papiergewichtes für den Einband zu schwer, daher dieser fragil, neue Bindung anratsam. - Die Zeitschrift "Kikeriki" wurde 1861 gegründet und bis in die achtziger Jahre des 19. 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].
