        The "Autograph Edition" of THE COMPLETE WORKS [sic]

      1902. [with cheque signed by Dickens] Edited with Annotations Bibliography and Topography by Frederic G. Kitton. [In Fifteen Volumes -- all that were issued.] New York & London: George D. Sproul, 1902-1908. Original maroon buckram with printed spine label. This is the renowned "Autograph Edition." F. G. Kitton was appointed editor of this edition -- actually one edition to be available in three different versions: the "St. Dunstan Edition" to consist of only 15 copies of 130 volumes each, the "Bibliophiles' Edition" to consist of 50 copies of 112 volumes each, and the "Autograph Edition" to consist of 250 copies of a planned 56 volumes each (this being Copy #48 of the latter).~This was planned to be the most sumptuous Dickens edition ever. Each title, requiring several volumes, would include a signed introduction by an eminent writer, plus a signed illustration by a different illustrator; furthermore the first volume of each set would include an original document signed by Dickens. The volumes would include every illustration used for each title from the first edition until 1900; for example, the three volumes of PICKWICK PAPERS include 365 plates, each with printed tissue guard (these three volumes, on thick handmade paper, span ten inches of shelf-space).~Unfortunately, after preparing about half of Dickens's works for publication, Kitton died in 1904. In his absence the project fell apart and in all, Sproul published only five titles plus a volume of "Reprinted Pieces." Specifically, this "complete set" consists of:~PICKWICK PAPERS, 1902, three volumes, signed introduction by Percy Fitzgerald, signed frontispiece by Harry Furniss (and with the first volume including an original 1864 cheque signed by Dickens).~DAVID COPPERFIELD, 1903, three volumes, signed introduction by George Gissing, signed frontispiece by H. M. Brock.~THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP, 1904, two volumes, signed introduction by George Edward Bateman Saintsbury, signed frontispiece by Henry M. Paget.~REPRINTED PIECES [from Household Words, etc.], 1904, one volume, introduction by W. E. Henley [not signed because of Henley's death], signed frontispiece by Gunning King.~BARNABY RUDGE, 1905, three volumes, signed introduction by Austin Dobson, signed frontispiece by Gordon Browne.~DOMBEY AND SON, 1908, three volumes, signed introduction by Edward Dowden, signed frontispiece by William Rainey.~It is believed that the "St. Dunstan" and "Bibliophiles'" editions were never issued; Sproul did "extend" some of the 250 "Autograph" sets by binding them into double the number of volumes -- PICKWICK, for example, requiring six volumes.~Condition is very good (some fading of the spines as usual for maroon cloth, minor edge-wear of one label, glass-rings on one rear cover). One volume (the second) has been rebound in similar maroon cloth with a facsimile of the original spine label. In all, this is one of the scarcest sets of Dickens -- and a signed check alone sells today for about half the cost of this "complete" set. Podeschi D148 (the Beinecke collection at Yale contains only two novels -- five volumes). Not in Carr (U. of Texas collection) but see Carr B30 (Sproul's proof copy of the first volume of the "St. Dunstan's Edition" -- "so far as we know the projected edition was never published").

        Typed Letter Signed

      1902. September 22 [1902]. Written to Mr. [William V.] Alexander, editor of Ladies Home Journal, who had requested a series of articles from Keller that were later published as The Story of My Life. Keller humbly thanks Alexander for payment for the last article; in part: "I only wish I could have made the story of my life more worthy of the generous praise it has received...It has meant a great deal in my life, and in Miss Sullivan's too -- the thought of the happiness that she says my compliance with your request has brought her is sweeter even than the thought of the kindness shown me in the letters that come constantly from old friends long silent and new friends whose words go to the heart..." Two 5" x 8" pages, typed with blue ribbon and signed "Helen Keller." A very early letter by Keller, preceding her first book, with exceptionally good content. Fine. .

Albert Guillaume est l'un des caricaturistes des plus renommés de la Belle Époque. Bien qu'on se souvienne surtout de ses affiches, Albert Guillaume réalisa aussi de remarquables huiles sur toile telle que la Soirée parisienne, un portrait de la bonne société parisienne. Influencé par l'éminent affichiste Jules Chéret, il créa aussi bien des affiches pour le théâtre que pour la publicité. Albert Guillaume est connu aussi pour ses dessins satiriques, qui furent publiés dans des magazines humoristiques parisiens tel que Gil Blas, le Rire, l'Assiette au beurre et le Figaro illustré. Lauréat de la médaille de bronze à l'exposition universelle de 1900, il vit bon nombre de ses illustrations publiées en albums par des éditeurs tels que Jules Tallandier, Ernest Maindron et Henri Simonis. Il réalisa aussi trois albums de dessins militaires, dont Mes Campagnes (1896), préfacé par Georges Courteline. Albert Guillaume s'était retiré à la fin de sa vie dans le petit village de Faux en Dordogne, où il mourut en 1942. (Wikipedia) POIDS: 420 g [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Bucks County, Pennsylvania.. 1902 - 1915.. Hardback volumes.. Overall VG.. William Antrim Flowers was born to Charles McCane (sometimes written MacKane) Flowers and Margaret Hooper Rhoads on March 21, 1832 in Champaign County, Ohio, on a farm known as the Mahan Farm. His memoir begins with the statement of his birth and then takes the story back to the birth of his father in 1804 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The memoir is a rich storehouse of family genealogy and history as the story follows his immediate family and relatives as they move and settle about the Midwest in the early 19th century. William writes of traveling by wagon and passing through the Miami Indian village, which was quite the curiosity to him and his siblings. His father was a shoemaker and his mother and grandmother were weavers, and Flowers at times helped them. He records what classes were taught and what books were used in the schools he attended, including describing how his father bought a ÒPeter ParleyÓ geography book for beginners. William at times worked as a teamster, a wagon driver, a teacher and a dairy farmer. He traveled on the Erie Canal, saw the first McCormick reaper in 1855, built log homes and cabins. Genealogy sources list a first wife, one Jane Harris, but William does not mention her or this marriage in the memoir. He married Margaret I. Jones on February 15, 1858 and had six children with her, two prior to enlisting in the First Minnesota Heavy Artillery in February of 1865, one son born during the war, and 3 more children after the war. William devotes 40 pages to describing his experiences in the war including descriptions of the 114th Colored Regiment Infantry and the 44th Colored Regiment, traveling to Lookout Mountain, the death of Abraham Lincoln and much more. His memoir closes with the recording of MargaretÕs funeral in 1882. In 1897 William married Lillian Rich and had one son, Palmer Rich Flowers in 1899 when he was 67 and Lillian was 36. The ten diaries begin with 5 pages of accounts receivable entries dating from February 26 to December 1900, then a description of the summer of 1901. The diaries begin in earnest on February 5, 1902 and continue with daily entries until May 1, 1915. All ten books are written in pencil by William at their farm in Edgewood, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where He, Lillian and Palmer had returned to live. The volumes are replete with descriptions of farm and community activities, weather, crops (asparagus, rhubarb, corn, apples, etc.), markets, the activities of family and friends, giving one an intimate look into the daily lives of a farming couple in the first fifteen years of the 20th century. Sprinkled liberally throughout the diaries were numerous newspaper clippings Ð news, recipes, farming information, medical cures, poems, etc. William lived a very active life until only a few days before his death of pneumonia. Lillian records his activities from April 7 until his death on April 12, 1915 at the age of 83. She poignantly describes his final moments and the void his passing left in her heart. She states that their son Palmer was shocked on waking up and finding his father had died, but then says Òbut got up like a little man and went about the chores.Ó She describes the arrangements, family arriving from about the area, and then funeral on the 15th with all its attendant family and activities. On the 29th she writes Òwe were alone.Ó But life went on. Friday, April 30th Ð ÒPalmer went to Langhorne with asp[aragus] and rhu[barb].Ó The final words in William Antrim FlowersÕ diaries are LillianÕs ÒSaturday, May 1st Ð clear and cool.Ó During the years of 1900 until his death, William was querying cousins and others in an effort to pull together the family genealogy. Nearly all of the loose sheets contain copious notes of birth, marriage and death dates of many branches of the Flowers family Ð Flowers, Rhoads, Rich, Bailey, Couch, Everett, Cox, McClintock, Campbell and more. The Correspondence from various cousins attest to their examining family bibles, cemetery records and the like to record as much data as they could to send to him. Truly, a treasure trove of family history, although much work still to be done to sort out the names and hang them all on the proper branches of the FlowersÕ family tree.

        The Tailor of Gloucester

      Privately Printed, December, 1902. Sextodecimo. Original pink boards, titles and illustration to front board in black. Colour frontispiece, 15 colour plates. Cover lightly soiled, Rubbing to corners and spine with loss, crack down spine, ownership name above inscription, some internal repairs. Overall a good copy. Rare inscribed. First edition, one of 500 copies privately printed for Beatrix Potter a year before Warne's trade edition. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For the Gloucester Infirmary Bazaar from Beatrix Potter". The text of this edition is considerably longer than that of the first trade, and the cover incorporates a vignette illustration which was never used again. Beatrix Potter evidently failed to sell all 500 privately printed copies and retained a few for her own use.

        A History of the Peninsular War

      Oxford: At the Clarendon Press, , 1902?30. 7 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to spines, gilt roundels to the boards. Photogravure portrait frontispiece to each, numerous plates and maps, many of them folding, throughout. A little rubbed and soiled, spines unevenly sunning as usual, endpapers renewed in all but volume II, spine of volume relined and a little wrinkled, volumes IV and VI neatly rebacked with the original spines laid down, contents clean and complete, a very good set. First editions. The finest account of a single campaign in the English language, "based upon minute knowledge of many hitherto unexplored sources, not least upon the Vaughan papers at All Souls. Oman travelled widely in Spain and Portugal to acquaint himself with the detailed topography of the campaigns and battlefields: at home and abroad his work won full recognition and upon it his reputation most securely rests" (DNB). Volumes VI and VII, published in 1922 and 1930 respectively, are remarkably scarce, the hiatus of eight years imposed by the Great War, and the attrition resulting from it, having presumably eroded the number of possible subscribers. Complete sets in anything approaching collectable condition are decidedly uncommon.

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

      1902. First. 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. .

        Souvenir. Acis and Galatea Masque of Love

      London: The Purcell Operatic Society,, 1902. As Produced at the Great Queen Street Theatre, March 10th, 1902. By Martin Shaw and Gordon Craig. Perfect bound. Original brown wrappers printed in black. 19 plates by Edward Gordon Craig, of which 1 is tipped-in on brown paper. Wrappers rubbed and creased along the edges, a few small spots to lower wrapper, text leaves faintly toned but plates clean. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression of this souvenir booklet produced to accompany Gordon Craig's second foray into theatre design, the 1902 Purcell Operatic Society production of Acis and Galatea. As the son of superstar actress Ellen Terry, Craig had grown up in the theatre and acted from the time he was a child. During the 1890s he became friends with the artists James Pryde and William Nicholson, who encouraged him to take up wood engraving, which he embraced "wholeheartedly, with a boyish, breathless, energy… This spontaneous, affectionate approach to creativity was an aspect of his character that articulated his entire life, embracing also the tone of his writing and his theatre design" (ODNB). Though he had retired from acting in 1897, Craig still longed for the stage, and was able to combine his theatrical and artistic passions by working as a theatre designer. "His first production, Dido and Aeneas (1900) for the Purcell Society at the Hampstead Conservatoire, was revolutionary… This production was followed by Handel's Acis and Galatea (1902) at the Great Queen Street Theatre, where it was described by Granville Barker as 'an ever-shifting maze of colour, form, and motion'. Haldane McFall observed to Craig that the colours in the first act were 'good enough to eat'" (ODNB). This is a particularly attractive copy of the Acis & Galatea souvenir programme, a scarce and fragile publication that includes 19 plates of theatre and costume designs by Gordon Craig from the beginning of his legendary career as a theatre designer.

        The Book of the Child

      New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1902. First edition. 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.

      1902. [a fine copy] A Narrative. And Two Other Stories. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1902. 32 pp ads dated Oct 1902. Original light green cloth decorated in black. First Edition. Although "Youth" gets top billing on the title page and binding, this book is sought largely for one of the "two other stories": the first appearance in book form of "Heart of Darkness," Conrad's classic tale of a journey up the Congo -- into the darkness of the jungle and of man's primal instincts. Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 film "Apocalypse Now" placed the same character, Kurtz, in Vietnam War-era Cambodia.~This copy has the October ad catalogue, which is the earlier state (some copies are dated November). Condition is FINE, with the light green cloth unusually clean and the spine gilt still remarkably bright (the spine is almost-imperceptibly sunned). Typically this book turns up with the cloth severely soiled and bubbled, so this copy constitutes a remarkable survival. Provenance: bookplate of Ingle Barr, the noted Californian collector; penciled signature of Walter E. Smith, the bibliographer of Conrad. Cagle A7a.1; one of the "Modern Library 100". Housed in a (slightly worn) calf-backed slipcase with inner felt-lined chemise.
