        The Varieties of Religious Experience. A Study in Human Nature.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co,, 1902. Being the Gifford Lectures on Natural Religion delivered at Edinburgh in 1901-1902. Octavo. Original green cloth, paper label to spine printed in black and ruled in red, black endpapers, top edge gilt, others uncut. With the publisher's catalogue to the rear. Very minor rubbing to extremities, spine rolled and ends lightly bumped, rear board a little scuffed, an excellent copy. First edition, first impression, of one of James's masterworks. He focuses on four central topics: the "experiential approach and the generic meaning of religion; the sick soul, the divided self, and the process of regeneration; saintliness, or the concrete fruits of religion and their value; and the bearing of mysticism on the truth of religion" (Smith p. xxiii). It was published on the day of his final lecture (9 June 1902) and, though there is some uncertainty over the publication date of the American edition of the same year, it is widely agreed to be later than this UK edition. "Few books written in this century on the subject of religion have had an initial impact and a continuing influence equal to that of William James's Varieties of Religious Experience" (Smith, p. xi).

        Personal photograph album with accompanying manuscript notebook.

      South Africa: August-October, , 1902. [Together with:] Manuscript notebook containing documentation for the album (both volumes numbered "2"). Square octavo album (205 x 167 mm): original grey-green cloth over bevelled boards; notebook: dark red paper wrappers. 96 photographs (mostly 105 x 60 mm) window-mounted two to a page, drab green heavy stock card, linen tabs on thick card stubs; each photograph numbered in the album with a corresponding description in the diary. Album covers a little marked, a few tears to wrappers of notebook, otherwise in very good condition. Fascinating, well-documented and vivid album of original photographs taken by a cavalry officer attached to a mounted infantry unit in South Africa after the conclusion of the Second Boer War (31 May 1902). Lieutenant Moncrieff was serving with number 4 troop, "C" squadron of the 12th Mounted Infantry, known as The Highland Company, and attached to the Seaforths. The notebook is informal and full of colourful detail of life in the field. Photograph number 1 shows Moncrieff posing casually outside a bell tent, riding crop under his arm, next to an image of his horse, a "typical Russian remount… you have to dig your spurs in pretty hard to make them break into a trot"; his unit on parade ("at 12-45 the orderly trumpeter sounds the 'Feed', (which all the horses get to know 2 or 3 days after they arrive) whereupon they all together start neighing & squealing and 500 horses neighing at once make a considerable noise"; Boer prisoners of war at Beaufort West ("dirty & unkempt looking scoundrels"); another shows a Lieutenant Pawson and Moncrieff holding their cameras "as we were taking a mutual snapshot"); sports at Klerksdorp "a few days after peace was declared"; teams loaded up for the trek to Elandsfontein; arrival of the water cart in camp ("we often camped 2 miles from water, & when the water cart arrives, everyone stampedes to fill the cooking pots, black-drivers & privates, all mixed up"); regimental monkey and dog ("indispensable friends"); another officer (Captain Long) packing away his camera; bivouacs; the camp at Beaufort West ("it gives you an idea of the stones & dried up veldt you find there… nice interesting country it looks, typical S. Africa"); picnicking near "Dielfontein Hospital" (actually Deelfontein), including an informal shot of "Col. Sloggett", later Sir Arthur Thomas Sloggett (1857-1929), surgeon-general to the RAMC; train loads of Boer prisoners ("returning up country for repatriation"); riding parties and other equestrian scenes; shots of pet dogs, monkeys and baboons, also "meir-cat & fox terrier"); fellow officers; the long trek across the Karoo; scenes six miles south of Worcester, Cape Colony; Hex River pass; "The Regt. Crossing the Buider River [Breede River] just before going through the Bain's Kloof Pass, it is this Drift that the 16th Lancers couldn't cross owing to the swollen state of the River"; Tweefontein; transporting wagons across river ("the men thoroughly appreciate it, you hear periodically roars of laughter from the bank"); trout hatcheries at Stellenbosch; four images of "Disembarking troops St Helena" - where Boer prisoners were held - showing men in slouch hats waiting in boats alongside a troop transport (the slouch hat came into widespread use during the Second Boer War); the album closes with "physical exercises aboard H. M. Transport Staffordshire". It is possible to trace Moncrieff's journey from Elandsfontein, just south of Johannesburg, south west, via Deelfontein and Beaufort West, to Worcester, near Cape Town – a trek of some 870 miles. Alaric Rimington (or Rimmington) Moncrieff was born in Kensington in March 1880, third son of Sir Alexander Moncrieff (1829-1906), army officer and engineer, who had served with the artillery during the siege of Sevastopol. After attending the Royal Military College, Moncrieff was gazetted to the Seaforth Highlanders and sent out to South Africa. According to Hart's Army List for 1906, he "served in the South African war 1899-1902, and took part in the advance on Kimberley, the operations in the Orange Free State from Feb. to May 1900, including the engagements at Paardeberg, 18th Feb. – severely wounded; and the operations in Orange River Colony from May to 29th Nov. 1900 (Medal with three Clasps, King's Medal with two Clasps)". In May 1902 he transferred to the Scots Greys as a lieutenant. In June 1910, however, as a newly promoted captain, he transferred to the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons, in which capacity he was still serving at the outbreak of hostilities in August 1914. He embarked for France the following month, as second in command of "C" Squadron under Captain Bridgewater, and was soon attached to his old regiment, the Scots Greys, with whom he was slightly wounded on the last day of October 1914 at Wytschaete during the First Battle of Ypres, where "'C' Squadron continued in action, pouring volley after volley into the advancing German infantry, until the troop leaders were forcibly restrained and ordered to retire" (Stephen Wood, Those Terrible Grey Horses: An Illustrated History of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, 2015, p. 162). Thereafter, Moncrieff served with the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons until the end of the war, gaining the temporary rank of Major in June 1918. As CO of "C" Squadron he won the MC near Èpehy on 1 December 1917, the citation reading: "for conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in leading his squadron to the attack. Though his flank was exposed, and he was counter-attacked by large numbers of the enemy, he held his position throughout the day with the greatest courage and determination". Moncrieff's own account of this action in the regimental war diary notes that his squadron "advanced at a gallop… a distance of about 3 kilometres – the last half of which was over a fire-swept zone". He is listed among the subscribers to Edward Almack's The History of the Second Dragoons: "Royal Scots Greys" (London 1908). In 2009 his medals were auctioned in London. Moncrieff was obviously a keen photographer and his notebook includes references to cameras and time exposure and reflects his occasional frustration with an inadequate image. These photographs were clearly sent home with accompanying letters - obviously a fraught business, in one place he notes "3 photos belong to the spool which was lost in the Post Office" - and he has drawn on these when compiling the notebook. This is a wonderfully candid and revealing assemblage of active service photographs compiled by a distinguished cavalryman serving with a mounted infantry unit during a conflict that saw the British Army adapting to the fluid tactics of the Boers.

A fine condition set, unopened, with original dust jackets and publisher's boxes. No. 129 of 265 copies, designed by Bruce Rogers and printed at the Riverside Press. Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (1533-1592) one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, was known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre; an influence on many famous authors, even in the 20th century he was viewed as "the first modern man, [with] the clearest conception of the problem of man's self-orientation" (N.B., from Wiki). ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in green marbled paper boards, natural canvas back, ivory paper spine labels with black lettering, ruled border and publisher's device, fore- and bottom edges uncut; each volume bears the prior owner bookplate of Joseph Halle Schaffner with a rooster emblem (Mr. Schaffner (1897-1972), director of the clothing-manufacturing firm Hart, Schaffner, and Marx, was a passionate book collector mostly in the history of science; he bequeathed to the University of Chicago a collection of several hundred scientific and medical rare books and manuscripts); richly decorated woodcut frontispieces and title pages in each volume (Volume I frontispiece of Montaigne, Volume II of John Florio, and Volume III of Marie de Gournay (who edited the third edition of the Essays in 1595 after Montaigne's death)); ornate woodcut initial capitals at the beginning of each book, extensive Notes section at the back of each volume, spare paper spine label tipped onto the rear free endpaper of each volume, Volume III contains a Bibliography with includes facsimiles of manuscripts and title pages; Montaigne type, folio size (approximately 14.25" tall), pagination: Volume I., (i-viii), (1)-415, blank (416), limitation statement (417), Bruce Rogers device (418); Volume II., (i-vi), (1)-582, limitation statement (583), Bruce Rogers device (584); Volume III., (i-vi), (1)-492, limitation statement (493), Bruce Rogers device (494); limited edition of 265 copies, this set no. 129. The plain dust jackets are of light green Old Hampshire Bond. The publisher's drop-back boxes are covered in light green fine linen cloth with spine labels which match the books, number "129" hand-written on each label; the interiors are lined with the same paper as the dust jackets, the hinge of the box being of the same canvas as the shelf-back. ***CONDITION: All three volumes are in fine condition overall, with clean bindings, strong, square text blocks, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners without rubbing, the interiors are clean and bright (with most, if not all, of the signatures being unopened), and other than the bookplates referred to above the set is entirely free of prior owner markings; the only condition issue we see are several tiny pinholes to the top edge of the front board of Volume I, and also on the bottom edges of the boards of Volume III (visible neither from the front nor on the front pastedowns); these flaws are minor, the volumes were clearly never read (being unopened) and one has to look directly at the edges of the boards to even notice them. We also wish to note that apparently two different cloths were used for binding, as two of the spines are celadon and one is light beige. The dust jackets are near fine overall; mostly clean and crisp, the jacket for Volume I showing some light overall soiling, for Volumes II and III a stray mark or very tiny spot of wear here or there; all the jackets show some light edgewear. The publisher's boxes each have some wear to the cloth covering, but they are all strong and sturdy. ***CITATION: Warde no. 33. ***POSTAGE: Note that due to the weight of this set additional postage may apply; we are happy to ship at cost, please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Letter to U. Ginsburg in Odessa.

      Vienna 10th February 1902 - Large 4to, (29 x 22.5 cm), one page, addressed to U. Ginsburg in Odessa, rubber-stamped 'Das Actions-Comite' and signed by Herzl in indelible purple pencil and a secretary in ink; two punch holes for filing in the left-hand margin (touching one letter), two folds, lower margin a little frayed. Text in German. Mounted. Herzl's letter to Ahad Ha'am. This letter to the Zionist activist, theoretician and author Asher Hirsch Ginsburg (a.k.a. Ahad Ha'am) welcomes him as newly elected member of the Cultural Commission, which had been established at the Fifth Zionist Congress at Basle at the end of 1901. Herzl further brushes aside the allegations, that the Odessa delegate at the Congress had not regularly paid his contributions to the Zionist organisation. 'Moreover, your election is unconditional,' Herzl assures him and encourages him to apply his energy to support the common cause and become active in the Cultural Commission. Ahad Ha'am (1856-1927) was one of the leading figures of Eastern European Zionism, protagonist of Cultural Zionism, coined the term 'Jewish Nietzscheanism' and through the Cultural Commission gained much influence over the younger generation, such as Chaim Weizman, Micha Josef Bersyczewski and Hayyim Nahman Bialik. Although opposed to Herzl's and Pinker's 'Political Zionism' predominant at the World Zionist Congress of the time, he inspired the foundation by Weizmann in 1901 of the 'Democratic Faction,' which promoted Cultural Zionism, contributed to the Hebrew Renaissance through the Cultural Commission and was an influential negotiator during the preparation of the Balfour Declaration. Herzl letters to a named recipient, especially to a renowned and influential Zionist, have become exceedingly rare. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

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

      1902 - - 4 février 1902, 11,5x9cm, Une carte recto-verso. - 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 ! » [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] "Paris, February 4, 1902 I regretted, my dear friend, not to see you! The poet did not walk, as you have seen, I had gone for a walk on the quays. That's for lunch at Crespel Saturday, at noon ½. Would you write to him if you do not see him before. What I am shaved by reporters about Hugo's centenary! It is to be believed that all the newspapers and magazines will make a number apart! What we are going to defecate imbecilities [sic] on his remains! A reporter confessed to me that he had been visiting about Hugo, the members of the Academy of Medicine (??? !!) and also the painters. It appears that it will be monumental on this side. So Saturday, dear friend and good to you Huysmans Seen Madame Leclaire more and more exasperated by the idea of staying in Ligugé! " [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Lettre autographe signée « après une existence de bonnes œuvres il s'irradie maintenant dans la joie qui ne finit point »

      Precious letter of condolences from Joris-Karl Huysmans, signed and without mention of addressee, following the death of Anatole-Henri-Philippe, Marquis de Ségur. The letter was probably addressed to the Comtesse de Guerne, daughter of the marquis. 33 lines in black ink, and some pencil indications from a previous bibliographer.Beautiful funereal elegy to a close friend, surely introduced to the author by the Abbe Mugnier, who had brought Huysmans back to the faith. A member of the Council of State and mayor of a commune in Normandy, the Marquis de Ségur was also a writer, fervent Catholic and admirer of Saint Francis de Sales, who inspired him with several biographical essays. He was also one of the founding members of the work of Saint Francis de Sales in 1857; Huysmans asserts in the letter that the Marquis " was really the son of St. Francis " and presents him as " one of the most powerful cordial souls that he has ever known ".Newly immersed in the Catholic faith for some years, Huysmans seems to have been inspired by this character to " goodness that simplifies everything and piety that puts everything in focus ". The marquis places religion at the center of his life and his literary work - an undertaking to which Huysmans has long aspired since the publication of his novels En Route and La Cathédrale (1895 and 1898).Poignant testimony to the admiration of Huysmans for a man of exemplary faith. s.l. 11 mai 1902 10x15,5cm 2 pages sur un feuillet remplié

Dimension of the narrow wooden frame 42,5x28cm.] „Die Welt, wie Michael Zeno Diemer sie sah, gibt es nicht mehr. Allein die Gletscher sowie Sarajevo und Mostar in Bosnien-Herzegowina haben sich gewaltig verändert, seit sie der Maler Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts mit seinem Pinsel festhielt. Für Dr. Constanze Werner, Leiterin des Oberammergau Museums und des Geigenbaumuseums Mittenwald, „ist er ein Chronist seiner Zeit". Auf seinen unzähligen Reisen und auch in seiner Heimat habe der Künstler, der 1881 als 14-Jähriger mit seiner Familie von München nach Oberammergau gezogen war, ständig seinen Skizzenblock dabei gehabt. „Er hat die ganze Zeit aquarelliert, was er gesehen hat", sagt Werner. Einige seiner Berg- und Seebilder hängen derzeit im Werdenfels Museum in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Neben der Natur – unter anderem dokumentierte Diemer auch etliche Erstbesteigungen – war es die Technik, etwa Graf Zeppelins Luftfahrten, die ihn begeisterten. Berühmt war der sechsfache Familienvater, der mit Hermine von Hillern, der Tochter der Geierwally-Autorin, verheiratet war, zudem für seine Riesenpanoramen. „Er war am Moskau-Panorama beteiligt, das neben dem von der ,Schlacht am Bergisel‘ in Innsbruck das einzige ist, das noch erhalten ist", erzählt Werner. Sie ist wie ihr Garmisch-Partenkirchner Kollege, Josef Kümmerle, fasziniert von Diemer: „In Zeiten, in denen die Expressionisten aktiv waren, hat er eher konservativ gemalt. Die Moderne hat er stattdessen durch seine Motive umgesetzt." [Merkur-Online vom 8 April 2015] [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        ECCE MUNDUS -- INDUSTRIAL IDEALS AND THE BOOK BEAUTIFUL

      Printed by the Chiswick Press for the Hammersmith Publishing Company, 1902 Pagination: unpaginated [38 pp.] which were beautifully printed at the Chiswick Press on fine paper. Of course, the special feature of this copy is that it was also bound at Cobden-Sanderson's DOVES BINDERY.Arts & Crafts designed bookplate of Ernst Beeckman with the inscription on the front flyleaf: "For Mr. and Mrs. Beckman. June 1911" (in an unknown hand). This binding may be related to catalogue entry 582 in Marianne Tidcombe's THE DOVES BINDERY, which mentions two copies of pattern numbered 742, and being bound as "the covers are tooled with a small corner design of rose leaves," but we are unsure this fully relates to our copy so therefore inconclusive.
