      London: George Bell and Sons, 1902. Hard Cover. Walter Crane. Walter Crane. Hard Cover. FIRST TRADE EDITION. This is still the best and most comprehensive work on Crane';s art, encompassing his illustrations, paintings, and decorative works. There are 8 photogravure plates, 24 full page colored plates, and over 100 other illustrations of his paintings, wall paper designs, and book illustrations. There are also two inserted facsimile leaves from The Story of the Glittering Plain published by the Kelmscott Press. It was the only Kelmscott Press title illustrated by Crane, despite his close friendship with fellow-Socialist William Morris. The book begins with a chapter discussing Morris';s influence on Crane';s ideas of Socialism and art. A very good small folio bound in the original blue-green pictorial cloth, with the cover design and spine printed in black and gilt. The covers show wear, with slight fraying at edges, brief spotting, and the front hinge slightly cracked. The interior is quite clean and bright save for some very light aging to margins and a small brown stain on one of the color illustrations and its facing page. Altogether a very nice copy of this rather scarce book. 138 pages. ILL/042210.

        Youth: A Narrative and Two Other Stories

      Edinburgh, London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1902 First edition, first issue with earliest ads (dated "10/02"). A very good copy in the publisher's original green cloth, with only slightly dimmed gilt lettering on the spine, some wear to the spine and corners, with minor offsetting on the front and back end papers, spine starting to crack at pages 80/81 and 288/289, although still fully stable and intact, with spotting along the page edges, otherwise clean pages. A collection of three short novels, this volume contains "Heart of Darkness" and "The End of the Tether" in addition to "Youth: a Narrative." The first two novels, both of which had been published separately prior to this publication, feature Conrad's reoccurring character Charles Marlow, who often serves as the author's alter-ego, and confront the dichotomy of East and West. "Youth" is narrated by Marlow and tells the story of a young Western man's first trip to the East, while "Heart of Darkness" tells of Marlow's job as an ivory transporter on the Congo River in colonized Central Africa. The progression of the main character's age continues in "The End of the Tether" which tells of the Captain Whalley as he spends his old age sailing. Together, the three volumes examine the different stages of life and the effect of the collective society on an individual's life.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        The Book of the Child

      Frederick A. Stokes Company, New York 1902 - Large squarish folio. Original color tinted paper covered boards, beige cloth spine. Cover insert on front and back by Smith, seven full page color plates, three by Jessie Willcox Smith and four by Elizabeth Shippen Green. Six headpiece drawings in orange and black by Smith, six by Green. First and only edition (except for an English edition of lesser quality printed after this release) of what is universally considered Smith's greatest book, both in size and color and composition, produced in colaboration with Elizabeth Shippen Green at the starting point of both artist's graphic art prowess. The book is noteworthy on many accounts. It was the largest colorplate book for children issued in the United States (with a few minor exceptions), it was printed by the acclaimed and accomplished color process leader, Charles W. Beck, Jr., who would subsequently join with Smith on a number of other books. Finally, the book stands out as a highpoint in compositional genius, artfully combining the complementary skills of two leading illustrators of the period in large format book for children.

        A Persian Pearl and Other Essays, Inscribed by Darrow to a Juror

      1902. 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, spine somewhat darkened, some wear to spine ends and corners, front hinge partially cracked, 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 my good friend/ A.J. Snyder/ from/ Clarence Darrow." 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. This copy has an interesting association with Darrow's 1912 trial for jury tampering. It is inscribed to one of the jurors in this case, which invites speculation. In what way was Snyder a "friend"?

        Smolo tachat roshi [His left hand is under my head] for alto voice and piano. Opus 24 no. 1. [Jerusalem, 1936-1937]. Autograph musical manuscript signed by the composer at head of first page of music and with the autograph dedication "süssen Juden und Arabermädchen gewidmet" ["dedicated to sweet Jewish and Arabian girls"]. The complete song except for the concluding 7 measures of piano accompaniment

      Folio (ca. 340 x 245 mm.). Light brown card wrappers with printed titling and small ink handstamp to margin of upper. 16 pp. Notated in ink on 14- stave music manuscript paper. With numerous corrections and additional musical notation in both ink and pencil, occasionally extending into margins. Performance markings and annotations in both pencil and red crayon in another hand, possibly that of Wolpe's second wife, the pianist Irma Schoenberg (1902-1984). & & With some divergences from the published score. & & Wrappers slightly worn, stained and frayed. . A setting from the Old Testament "Song of Songs." & & In a report of a performance in Jerusalem for Wolpe's setting of Hebrew poets and Biblical texts, the reviewer Raphael de Coste stated: "The four songs by Mr. Wolpe fully earned their share of the applause, as did the well-thought-out and clear accompaniment by Mrs. Schoenberg. The simple and convincingly Palestinian folk tone of the first two songs of the talented Jerusalem composer invested these with special merit. The other two songs are settings to texts taken from the "Song of Songs," and seem a little more complicated (it was unforutunately not possible to see the manuscript of the music). 'Smolo tachat roshi' is marked by interesting treatment of the rhythm, while 'Simeni Hahotan[!], which called forth an encore, is admirable in its concentration and expressiveness." Clarkson, ed.: On the Music of Stefan Wolpe: Essays and Reflections, p. 84. & & "In Palestine [where he taught at the Conservatory from 1936-1938], Wolpe became fascinated by Jewish songs from Syria and Yemen and by classical Arabic music; the Octatonic scale, which he used in many works from that time on, can be derived from the maq m aba. In the music of the Middle East he discovered a music-stasis that provided an alternative to the goal-directed forms and rhetoric of German Expressionism. He found in it a stirring but non-subjective expressivity."& & "In 1938 Wolpe emigrated to the USA and settled in New York. He held teaching posts at a number of institutions, including the Settlement Music School, Philadelphia (1939–42), the Brooklyn Free Music Society (1945–8), the Contemporary Music School (1948–52), of which he was founder and director, and the Philadelphia Academy of Music (1949–52); he was director of music at Black Mountain College (1952–6) and chairman of the department of music at C.W. Post College, Long Island University (1957–68). He influenced a wide range of musicians through his teaching, among them George Russell, Eddie Sauter, Haim Alexander, Herbert Brün, Morton Feldman, Ralph Shapey and David Tudor..."& & "... Wolpe received many awards and honours, including two Guggenheim fellowships and membership of the National Institute of Arts and Letters. His last years were overcast by parkinsonism and by a fire which damaged all his papers and destroyed his collection of paintings." Austin Clarkson in Grove online

        The hound of the Baskervilles another adventure of Sherlock Holmes.

      George Newnes, Limited,, London 1902 - First edition in book form. The title first appeared in serial format in Strand magazine in 1901-2 and remains the best known of the ever-popular Sherlock Holmes series. The novel appeared after Doyle had killed off his hero in an epic struggle with between Holmes and his bitter foe Moriarty, but a public out-cry ensued and The hound of Baskervilles appeared (with the sub-title ?another adventure of Sherlock Holmes? to create the illusion that the story was from an earlier date) and was met with unprecedented success. Bauman: "First issue, with "you" for "your" on page 13, line 3 and the illustration facing page 76 reversed (as it was originally in the Strand Magazine, October 1901)." 8vo (183 × 117 mm.), pp. [viii], 358, [2], with frontispiece and 15 plates by Sidney Paget. Original red cloth, gilt stamped design with black silhouette with the hound, signed "A[lfred].G[arth].J[ones].". Small mark to bottom edge, very faint sunning to spine and very slight rubbing to head and tail of spine. An exceptional copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Pothunters

      London: Adam & Charles Black, 1902. First Edition. First Issue, without ads. Octavo (19cm); publisher's royal blue cloth, titles stamped in silver on the spine, and silver loving cup on front and spine panels; 272pp. Bookplate of author Leslie Mead on front pastedown, with a later, Wodehouse-themed bookplate of bibliophile Douglas R. Vining on the front endpaper. Spine slightly discolored, as is almost always the case; light foxing internally and to textblock edges, with heavy foxing to preliminary and terminal pages and mild wear at the extremities; still Very Good, and far better than usually seen, with all of the gilt unrubbed.& & Laid into this copy is an autograph letter in the original mailing envelope, addressed and written in Wodehouse's hand to Leslie Mead, a knighted ex-pat and minor author living in Buenos Aires. The letter is dated September 19th, 1936, and reads as follows: & & Dear Mr. Mead, Thank you for your letter. The Pothunters was my first book, and I imagine only a very small number of copies were published - at a venture I should say 1000. It started as a serial in the Public School Magazine and I had to condense the third instalment, as the magazine ceased publication. (I mean I had to condense the thing for the 3rd installment, cramming about 40,000 workds into 5000!). I am so glad you like my books. I am slowly collecting material for another Ukridge volume. I have seven stories and need ten for a book. I have just written another, which will appear in The Strand sometime in 1937. Yours, P.G. Wodehouse.& & An excellent letter from the author, full of detailed bibliographic content and addressed to the apparent original owner of the book; old fold, as issued with minor creasing and a few tiny pieces of tape to the envelope - Very Good.

        Sea Whispers

      W. W. Jacobs is perhaps best remembered for his macabre tale The Monkey's Paw (published in 1902 in the collection of short stories The Lady of the Barge). However, the majority of his output was humorous in tone. His favourite subjects were marine life: "men who go down to the sea in ships of moderate tonnage" said Punch, reviewing his first collection of stories, Many Cargoes, which achieved great popular success on its publication in 1896. Sea Whispers was one of the last of Jacobs' published works. Here is a near fine copy of the first edition in a very good example of the exceptionally scarce dust jacket. The light blue cloth binding is bright and clean with only trivial wear at extremities. The contents are bright and tight with trivial intermittent spotting. All illustrations are present, though the tipped in plate at p.36 is loose. There is an inked previous owner's inscription on the ffep dated "xmas 1926". The white pictorial dust jacket is unclipped and bright, with only mild soiling. There are chips at the head of the spine to a depth of .25 inch, a few short closed tears, and light wear at the corners. The jacket has been neatly reinforced on the inside edges - invisible from the outside - and is now protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

Very Good. Hardcover. Acomplete Edwardian set of Richardson's epistolary novels. Samuel Richardson (1689-1761) was an immensely popular writer in Georgian England. Having last his first wife and all five their children early in life, he remarried and sired a string of daughters. When he had fathered no sons to whom he mightpass itby the age of 51, he began to wind up his printing press in the well-known Salisbury Court. It was only at this juncture that he found the time to publish his work, despite having been known as a man of good prose - particularly letters - amongst his friends and relations since childhood. His first novel, Pamela, was an overnight success. In keeping with his talents, it takes the form of purported letters and correspondence; as do the other two works comprising this set. Richardson's success brought with it reward; and he was able to move his family to a large house in Fulham and began to enjoy a stratified social position. He corresponded with Samuel Johnson (whose debts he once gregariously paid off) and Sarah Fielding, and was made Master of the Worshipful Company of Stationers. His second great novel, Pamela, was published in full by 1748 and is widely regarded as his masterpiece. The public referred to the titular heroine as 'darling Pamela' and the work was immediately translated into French for sale on the continent. Richardson'snext opus was Sir Charles Grandison, published in 1753,which would mark the winding down of his career as a novellist. For the next eight years, he enjoyed a socially and intellectually rewarding life, before passing away in 1761. Pamela, Clarissa, and Sir Charles Grandison, collatedwith justone missing plate to volume 3 of the set (vol. III of Clarissa). Condition: Bound in amateur half-calf. Excellent with just minor shelfwear only. Lovely red colour (with matching marbled boards) and contrasting labels. Internally, very firmly bound. Bright, clean plates. Generally clean text with just some spots affecting the first and last few pages as usual. Ink inscription of 'S McD' to preliminaries - possibly Edwardian. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..
