        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1902 - 1902 Original Hardback Wisden, Very Good Condition

      1902. Hi, This lot is an 1902 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the seventh year of the hardback and a year I have found hard to find recently, especially in this condition. The front board is very clean with excellent, extremely bright gilt, one tiny mark to the top, the rear board is near perfect and the spine gilt is very bright and original. The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns in top condition and very bright yellow. The photoplate is very good and internally a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. The only downside and it is a bit picky is there is a tiny indentation to the edge of the rear board where a band has been around it. A rare Wisden in superb condition (++) and a very nice price.

Valentiner was director of the Karlsruhe Observatory and a professor of astronomy at the University of Heidelburg. In 1874, Wilhelm Valentiner led a successful German expedition to Tschifu (China) to observe a solar eclipse. After the establishment of the "Grand Duchy Mountain Observatory" (today’s Heidelberg-Königstuhl State Observatory) in the year 1898 Valentiner was placed over the Department of Astrometry, which stood in competition with the Astrophysics Department under Max Wolf. Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Johann Valentiner (1845 - 1931), dt. Astronom. Nach der Promotion zum Dr. phil. Nahm Valentiner 1874 an einer erfolgreichen deutschen Expedition zur Beobachtung einer Sonnenfinsternis nach Tschifu (China) teil. 1875 übernahm er die Leitung der Mannheimer Sternwarte. Da die Beobachtungsbedingungen in der Mannheimer Innenstadt immer schlechter wurden, betrieb Valentiner die Verlegung der Sternwarte nach Karlsruhe, was 1880 von Großherzog Friedrich I. von Baden genehmigt wurde. Die Teleskope mussten allerdings provisorisch in einer Hütte im Karlsruher Nymphenpark untergebracht werden. Sehr zum Ärgernis von Valentiner, der inzwischen zum Professor an der TH Karlsruhe ernannt worden war, wurde in Karlsruhe keine neue Sternwarte errichtet, da man sich für einen Standort auf dem Königstuhl bei Heidelberg entschieden hatte. Nach der Errichtung der Großherzoglichen Bergsternwarte im Jahre 1898 übernahm Valentiner die Abteilung für Astrometrie, die in Konkurrenz zur astrophysikalischen Abteilung unter Max Wolf stand.

        BUFFALO BILL'S WILD WEST AND CONGRESS OF ROUGH RIDERS OF THE WORLD

      [London: Partington, 1902. [4],xiv,[3]-64,[xv]-xviii pp. Quarto. Original color pictorial wrappers. Wrappers edgeworn, chipped along spine. Text lightly tanned. In fair condition. Designated "10th Edition" on the titlepage. A program for Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, likely produced to coincide with the show's 1903 tour of Europe. All the advertisements are for British products, and the price of the program is six pence. The show performed at the Olympia Theatre, and the floor plan for the arena is given, as are instructions for travelling to the venue by rail. Most of the text is taken up by biographical information on Buffalo Bill and tales of thrills in the American West, but the official program for the British production is also given. The show began with the Star Spangled Banner and a procession by the "Rough Riders of the World" (led by Cody on horseback), followed by a Pony Express rider, "Western Prairie Girls," assorted Indians, cavalry veterans, and more, until finally Cody himself took the stage at the end of the first part of the show. The second half featured a recreation of the Battle of San Juan Hill, from the Spanish-American War. The program also takes care to note that "Colonel Cody uses Winchester Rifles and Winchester Ammunition exclusively in all his exhibitions." A nice artifact of the Wild West show at the height of its international fame, complete with Buffalo Bill's personal product endorsements, and a celebration of the American victory over the Spanish in Cuba.

        Lettre autographe signée « après une existence de bonnes

      - s.l. 11 mai 1902, 10x15,5cm, 2 pages sur un feuillet remplié. - preziosa lettera di condoglianze Huysmans, firmato e non si parla di destinazione, in seguito alla morte di Anatole Henri Philippe Marquis de Segur. La lettera è stata probabilmente inviata alla contessa di Guerne, figlia del marchese. 33 linee in inchiostro nero, matita e alcune indicazioni di un bibliografo precedente. Bella elogio funebre ad un caro amico, sicuramente introdotto all'autore dall'abate Mugnier, che ha portato alla fede Huysmans. Membro del Consiglio di Stato e il sindaco di una città in Normandia, il marchese de Segur è anche uno scrittore, un fervente cattolico e ammiratore di S. Francesco di Sales, che ha ispirato diversi saggi biografici. E 'stato anche uno dei membri fondatori delle opere di San Francesco di Sales nel 1857; Huysmans dice nella lettera che il marchese "era veramente il figlio di San Francesco" e lo descrive come "uno dei più potenti anima cordiale che [egli] era [a] conosciuto". Di recente si è tuffato nella fede cattolica per alcuni anni, Huysmans sembra aver ispirato il carattere "la bontà che semplifica tutto e la pietà che rende ogni punto." Il marchese invece anzi la religione al centro della sua vita e la sua opera letteraria - una società che aspira ardentemente Huysmans, dopo la pubblicazione dei suoi romanzi Lungo e la Cattedrale (1895 e 1898). testimonianza struggente di ammirazione per Huysmans per un uomo di fede esemplare. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Précieuse lettre de condoléances signée de Joris-Karl Huysmans, signée et sans mention de destinataire, suite au décès d'Anatole-Henri-Philippe, marquis de Ségur.

Belle élégie funèbre à un ami proche, sûrement introduit à l'auteur par l'abbé Mugnier, qui avait ramené Huysmans à la foi.

        A History of the American People.

      New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1902. First edition. Octavo, 5 volumes, red cloth, gilt titles to the spine, front panels, contains numerous plates and illustrations. Signed by President Wilson in volume one, "Woodrow Wilson, 31 March, 1905." In near fine condition. "Wilson wanted to enhance the presidency by establishing a direct link to the American people. He thought the president, as their spokesman, should be the preeminent leader of the democratic nation. Long convinced that the British parliamentary government was better than the American constitutional system, he exerted personal influence on the legislative branch in unprecedented ways...The first president to hold regular press conferences, he sought to shape public opinion by managing news from the White House. Moreover, he delivered messages personally to Congress, reviving a practice that George Washington and John Adams had used on a few occasions. From Jefferson through Taft, other U.S. presidents had submitted only written messages" (ANB). As a writer, Wilson "propounded his own frontier thesis to explain American history. Influenced by conversations and correspondence with historian Frederick Jackson Turner, Wilson now credited the frontier, more than the Anglo-Saxon heritage, with the rise of freedom and democracy in the New World" (ANB). "As a lecturer and writer Wilson had a genius for simplification, for the clarification of the complex and the explanation of the relation of things. These qualities he carried into his political speeches and they account in part, at least, for the effect he exercised upon men's minds" (DAB).

        Broadside]: Harvard Illustrated Magazine Out Today

      Harvard Illustrated Magazine, Cambridge 1902 - Broadside. Measuring 8" x 14". Printed in red and yellow on thin card stock. Modest age-toning and three tiny tack holes, near fine. Decorated with a very attractive illustration of the Egyptian goddess Isis, with wings spread over the word "Jan." presumably indicating the January issue. The illustration is signed in print "George Allan England '02" along with two Chinese(?) characters. England attended Harvard University, where he received Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees. However, he is better known as a socialist politician and writer; he was the author of several books of speculative fiction and science fiction, as well as collections of detective stories. His story, "The Thing from - 'Outside'", appeared in the first issue of the first science fiction magazine, Amazing Stories. In his day he was considered one of the closest rivals to Edgar Rice Burroughs. This advertising poster, exhibiting his artistic skill, is presumably very uncommon.

        Carte autographe signée « Ce que je suis rasé par les reporters à propos du centenaire d'Hugo ! »

      - 4 février 1902, 11,5x9cm, Une carte recto-verso. - "Parigi, 4 febbraio 1902 Mi è dispiaciuto il mio caro amico, non vederti! La stufa a malapena a camminare, come si poteva vedere, sono andato a fare una passeggiata sul lungomare. Resta inteso per il pranzo in Crespel Sabato a mezzogiorno e mezzo. Vuoi scrivere a lui, se non avete visto prima. Quello che mi sono rasato dai giornalisti circa il centenario della Hugo! E 'da credere che tutti i giornali e le riviste tutti faranno una questione separata! Cosa ci sarà di defecare sciocchezze [sic] sulle sue spoglie! Un giornalista mi ha detto che stava per visitare Hugo, membri dell'Accademia di Medicina (??? !!) e anche i pittori. Sembra che sarà monumentali, da quel lato. Un Sabato, caro amico e bene a voi Huysmans Dato signora Leclaire sempre più esasperato dalla idea di soggiornare in Ligugé! " - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Belle carte autographe de Joris-Karl Huysmans signée à un ami. 17 lignes à l'encre noire, avec des indications au crayon d'un précédent bibliographe. La missive porte sur le centenaire de la naissance de Victor Hugo. Grand admirateur de l'écrivain, Huysmans est horrifié par l'escalade médiatique qui entoure l'événement et déplore avec véhémence la compétition des journaux qui multiplient leurs panégyriques jusqu'à l'excès.  « Le poêle ne marchant guère » La lettre débute sur l'évocation du froid glacial qui règne dans l'appartement de Huysmans, au 20 de la rue Monsieur. Suivent des arrangements en prévision d'un déjeuner chez le docteur Victor Crespel, son médecin et proche ami. Le ton de la lettre se durcit alors brutalement dans les lignes suivantes, et révèle un Huysmans exaspéré par l'affaire Hugo : « Ce qu'on va déféquer d'imbécillités [sic] sur ses restes ! », s'exclame Huysmans dans la lettre. Il est vrai qu'à elle seule, La Presse propose trente-neuf articles sur Hugo répartis sur 5 jours de publication (!). De nombreux journalistes le démarchent ; il répondra avec réticence au Figaro et à La revue hebdomadaire. Par décret ministériel, des fêtes officielles et une cérémonie au Panthéon le 26 février en commémoration du centenaire avaient été programmées. Huysmans refusa de prendre part au comité d'organisation, et se lamente : « Un reporter m'a avoué qu'il avait été visiter à propos d'Hugo, les membres de l'académie de médecine (???!!) et aussi les peintres ». Les hommages populaires excessifs et les "enquêtes commémoratives" des journalistes le scandalisent, et donnent matière à sa virulente diatribe.  La lettre se termine sur un post-scriptum concernant Mme Leclaire, "de plus en plus exaspérée par l'idée de rester à Ligugé". Le ménage Leclaire s'était installé avec Huysmans dans la commune de Ligugé, près de Poitiers. Fervent converti, Huysmans a fait construire une demeure non loin de l'abbaye bénédictine de Saint Martin, où il se destinait à devenir oblat. Huysmans fut forcé de revenir à Paris l'année précédant la rédaction de cette lettre ; les Leclaire sont quant à eux restés à Ligugé, au plus grand mécontentement de Mme Leclaire. Précieux témoignage de la verve féroce de Huysmans et de son grand respect pour Victor Hugo et sa mémoire. « Paris, 4 février 1902 J'ai regretté, mon cher ami, de ne pas vous voir ! Le poële ne marchant guère, comme vous avez pu le constater, j'étais allé faire une promenade sur les quais. C'est entendu pour le déjeuner chez Crespel samedi, à midi ½. Voulez-vous lui écrire si vous ne le voyez pas avant. Ce que je suis rasé par les reporters à propos du centenaire d'Hugo ! C'est à croire que tous les journaux et toutes les revues vont faire un numéro à part ! Ce qu'on va déféquer d'imbécillités [sic] sur ses restes ! Un reporter m'a avoué qu'il avait été visiter à propos d'Hugo, les membres de l'académie de médecine (???!!) et aussi les peintres. Il paraît que ce sera monumental, de ce côté-là. A Samedi donc, cher ami et bien à vous Huysmans  Vu Mme Leclaire de plus en plus exaspérée par l'idée de rester à Ligugé ! »

        Amerikanskie milliardery. S 16 portretami i prilozheniem stat'i Andr'iu Karnegi: Predubezhdeniia protiv trestov. Perevod s frantsuzskago pod redaksiei A. E. Ianovskago [American billionaires. With sixteen portraits and, as a supplement, Andre Carnegie's essay, "Popular Illusions about Trusts." Translated from the French and edited by A. E. Ianovskii]

      XX Vek, St. Petersburg 1902 - Octavo (18.3 × 12.3 cm). Contemporary beige cloth; [4], 379 pp. Sixteen photographic portraits on separate leaves; numerous decorative head pieces and vignettes. Original wrappers perished; stamp of a non-existing lending library to title; else about very good. First and only edition of this sensationalist account of the life of American billionaires of the Gilded Age, supposedly written by a French journalist with exclusive access to the likes of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, and Morgan. The supposed author -- according to the preface a former contributor to the journal 'Revue de revues' -- is likely a spurious pseudonym, as we have been unable to trace any French original with this title. The goal of the book is to expose the sheer power and inherent corruptness of the American financial and industrial elites, as demonstrated through descriptions of their business practices, but also their daily lives and intrigues. Chapters are devoted to the "first four hundred" and their families; to the daily life and psychology of the wives and daughters of America's richest; to their eccentricities and other gossip; as well as to their children and the system of lineage. Translated and edited by Abel' E. Ianovskii. The author is particularly critical of the practice of holding companies, or trusts, and the translator has here appended his Russian translation of Andrew Carnegie's essay, "Popular Illusions about Trusts" ("Predubezhdeniia protiv trestov"). Carnegie himself is the subject of the short chapter, "The Steel King." Complete, with all sixteen portraits. Rare; not traced through KVK or OCLC. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      London Wertheimer Lea & Co 1902 - First edition. Octavo (18.5 x 12 cm); xvi, 191 pp., original pictorial red cloth boards, edges rubbed. Previous owner's signature on title page upper right corner. Occasional illustrations by G. Lilian Bright throughout the book. A very good copy. Jewish-British cookbook published by two sisters, aimed at the wealthier audience. May Henry first published The Economical Jewish Cook in 1897. This was "a modern orthodox recipe book for young housekeepers". Following the success of that first publication Ms Henry teamed up with her sister, Kate Halford, to publish the offered work, which was intended to "cater for a class to which the other book did not appeal, by reason of the rigid economy necessary in recipes written primarily for Board School Cookery Classes." This book contains twelve Sample Menus - one for each month of the year, richer recipes arranged by food groups and a small chapter on Passover Cookery.

        A Tale of Mishap].

      Kushnerev for G. E. Lissner Moskva 1902 - Folio. 12 pp., with 5 large chromolithographed illustrations by Lissner. Publisher's pictorial wrappers; stamps of a Russian shop to lower wrapper; some light soiling and small marginal repairs. Lissner was a Russian painter and graphic artist who owned the printing press "E. Lissner and J. Roman" in Moscow. These illustrations, in the style of great Russian illustrator Ivan Yakovlevich Bilibin, were produced whilst he was studying at the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts in St Petersburg. These richly ornate illustrations depict scenes from a Russian folk tale, sometimes known as "Woe Bogotir", about a very poor man who has a rich merchant brother. One day the rich brother invites the man and his wife to his name-day party. However, at the party he forgets about them and they end up having nothing to eat or drink. On their way home the husband starts singing which invites "Woe" to visit him. Piece by piece "Woe" induces him to sell all his and then his wife's possessions and spend the money on drink. One day Woe takes him to a big stone in a field and tells the poor man to look underneath it. He finds a pit of gold and piles it up in a borrowed cart. He then tricks Woe into going underneath the stone and traps him there. With his new found wealth he becomes richer than his merchant brother. The brother is jealous and goes and releases Woe, hoping that he will make his brother poor again. However, Woe attaches himself to the merchant brother. Tempting him to drink the brother comes up with a plan to get rid of Woe. He suggests they play hide-and-seek and says that Woe would not be able to hide in such a small place as a cart wheel. Woe rises to the bait and so the brother wheels the cart into the river and Woe drowns. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
