        Autograph letter signed.

      Pirbright, Surrey, 18. VIII. 1902. - 8vo. 3 pp. on 3 ff. A sharp letter revealing Stanley's sensitivity to cultures other than his own and his desire to impart this on others. To Robert Stein, criticizing his correspondent's remarks about the French, Germans, Americans and the English: "It is impossible to read your article without coming to the conclusion that you are an accomplished writer, & I feel immensely flattered at being asked to endorse what has been so ably & eloquently argued. I am sorry however to say that my rude common sense prevents me from approving your suggestion. I am neither pro-German, or pro-French and I distinctly see that the ideas you broach will not please Frenchmen nor indeed any American or Englishman who is of clean unbiassed mind, & I doubt, whether the higher class of Germans will regard them as wise. I cannot divest my mind quite from the suspicion that there is some irony concealed in your proposals, & if I were a Frenchman I feel I should be furiously angry. You may be innocent of all intention to provoke Frenchmen, but it is too evident your exaggerated ideas of German[y] might border perilously near being offensive. If America talked of American projects with such exaggerated insinuation of her power, & her wealth &c, she would be simply insufferable, & no lover of Germany would care to put ideas in her mouth which would estrange the good will of every nation. Germany is too rich & powerful to need such language to impress her greatness & her value as one of the foremost among the nations. As yet she feels the need of more land, but if out of inordinate conceit she proclaims her greedy love of it & wantonly promotes discord to indulge it, she will end in making herself as detested as the French did previous to 1870-71 [.]". - On his imprinted stationery; very scattered spotting.

        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.

      London: Grant Richards, 1902.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-270 [271: blank] [272: printer's imprint], original brown cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, all edges untrimmed. First edition. This oddly titled, but glorious volume ... [which] appeared in 1902 under the Grant Richards imprint, is a collection of four novellas loosely linked by both a common theme and the reappearance of certain minor characters from one tale to another. Stylistically, the novellas are a great improvement over the earlier short stories. O'Sullivan has discovered humor, albeit of a midnight-black variety, and perhaps a new literary master as well. The lean, razor-sharp intelligence of Baudelaire that had heretofore served as O'Sullivan's literary Pharos has been supplanted by a more discursive, grandly baroque manner of expression. O'Sullivan now sounds like nothing so much as an English-language Leon Bloy. The first section, "Of Kindred," presents another mysterious stranger offering a deal too good to be true to another desperate protagonist. But whereas in the earlier story, "The Bargain of Rupert Orange," the Mephistopheles figure is a real demon, and Orange, a man within an ace of starving to death in a garret, in this tale an aging titled hypochondriac has a run-in with a mysterious German academic with a novel theory on the prolongation of life. (Briefly it consists of identifying your strongest enemies and gifting them with annuities that expire upon your death, thus turning their hatred into fervent wishes for your continued good health.) The black humor aspect involves one enemy misunderstanding the arrangement and literally killing the goose that laid the golden egg." - Andrew Mangravite. Not in the Colbeck catalogue. Mild rubbing to cloth at edges, small spot to rear cover, endpapers tanned, hairline crack along inner rear hinge, a very good copy. "Library" is blind-stamped on the front cover, but there are no library marks inside or outside. A very scarce book. (#155530)

( Mappen und Tafeln in frischen Farben, Kellergeruch, Tafeln in gutem Zustand) Nachweise zu Müller-Kaempff bei Thieme/Becker, Bd.25, S.245. [ [Paul Müller-Kaempff (* 16. Oktober 1861 in Oldenburg; † 5. Dezember 1941 in Berlin) war ein deutscher Maler, Zeichner und Lithograf. Seine Ausbildung erhielt er zunächst als Schüler der Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, 1883–1886 der Akademie Karlsruhe bei Gustav Schönleber (1851–1917) und 1886–1888 der Berliner Akademie im Meisteratelier bei Hans Fredrik Gude (1825–1903). Der Name Paul Müller-Kaempff steht in erster Linie für das Entstehen der Künstlerkolonie Ahrenshoop auf dem Darß. Anlässlich eines Fischland-Aufenthalts mit seinem Freund Oskar Frenzel (1855–1915) im Jahr 1889 hatten sie das abgelegene Fischerdorf entdeckt. Er baute sich dort 1892 ein eigenes Haus und begann 1894 mit der Malschule St. Lucas. Künstlerkollegen folgten seinem Beispiel, so wurde Ahrenshoop auch zur Heimat von Anna Gerresheim (1852–1921), Elisabeth von Eicken (1862–1940), Friedrich Wachenhusen (1859–1925), Fritz Grebe (1850–1924), Heinrich Schlotermann (1859–1922), Theobald Schorn (1866–1913) und Hugo Richter-Lefensdorf (1854–1904). 1909 war er maßgeblich am Bau des Ahrenshooper Kunstkatens beteiligt. Zu seiner Oldenburger Heimat hielt er in dieser Zeit stets Verbindung. 1904 wurden Müller-Kaempff und seine spätere Frau (1905) und vormalige Schülerin Else Schwager Mitbegründer des Oldenburger Kunstvereins (Oldenburg in Oldenburg), 1905 erhielt er die Oldenburgische Staatsmedaille und 1907 war er Mitbegründer der Vereinigung nordwestdeutscher Künstler. 1906 wurde er zum Professor ernannt. Er lebte ab 1908 auch in Hamburg und war Mitglied des Hamburger Künstlervereins von 1832. Müller-Kaempff war als Landschaftsmaler sehr erfolgreich und zählte Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts zu den fortschrittlichsten und bekanntesten Landschaftsmalern seiner Zeit. Neben Gemälden, Aquarellen, Pastellen und Zeichnungen sind von ihm auch Entwürfe für Möbel überliefert und eine Vielzahl von Postkarten bekannt geworden. Des Weiteren fertigte er Lithografien für Heimatmappen an und illustrierte Bücher (u. a. Naumann: „Naturgeschichte der Vögel Mitteleuropas", 1905). Bilder wurden zu seinen Lebzeiten nicht nur von Museen in Rostock, Oldenburg i.O., Kiel und Hamburg gekauft, auch viele Privatsammler erstanden seine Bilder. Prinz Eitel Friedrich, der zweite Sohn von Kaiser Wilhelm II., erwarb 1908 mehrere Werke für den kaiserlichen Hof.

Paul Lacroix (1806-84), was a French author and journalist, best known by his pseudonym P.L. Jacob or Bibliophile Jacob. Librarian of the Arsenal from 1855, he wrote many works and memoirs on book collectors and bibliography as well as numerous works of fiction. The present work is a charming account of the bouquinistes, the keepers of book shops, and the bibliomanes of Paris. Pages [45]-150 contain the imaginary adventures of "Bibliophile Jacob" in search of his copy of Bodin's République (Paris: 1580) during the French Revolution.

        Wie es Licht geworden

      Die Nichte von Bertha von Suttner wurde als Tochter des Carl Gundaccar Freiherr von Suttner, Ministerialsekretär im K. u. K. Ackerbauministerium in Wien, und der Luise Reichsgräfin von und zu Firmian und Meggel, geboren. Sie hatte drei Brüder. - Bis zu ihrem 16. Lebensjahr wurde sie in einem Kloster erzogen, ehe sie in den Haushalt ihrer Tante Bertha zog. Der Bruder ihres Vaters, Arthur Gundaccar von Suttner, Ehemann von Bertha, hatte erheblichen Einfluss auf ihre Anschauungen. Sie lebte auf Schloss Harmannsdorf bei Eggenburg, dem Stammsitz der Suttners, schrieb Feuilletons für in- und ausländische Zeitschriften, veröffentlichte Übersetzungen und schrieb Novellen. Für Bertha war dieses Zusammenleben recht tragisch, wie man ihren Tagebüchern entnehmen konnte, da sich zwischen Marie und ihrem Onkel eine Liebesbeziehung entwickelte, die Marie in ihrem Roman "Wie es Licht geworden", enthüllte. Diese Dreiecksbeziehung endete erst mit seinem Tod im Jahre 1902. 1905 heiratete sie Emil von Haebler und zog mit ihm auf Schloss Gutenbüchl bei Schönstein in der Untersteiermark, heute Slowenien. Sie starb 1948. -- Erstauflage in der Ausgabe als Broschur. - Auf dem Schmutztitel mit einer privaten Widmung und signiert mit vollem Namen "Baroness Maria Louise von Suttner". Die Widmung war für Alfred Lorenz, ansässig in Gars am Kamp (nahe Schloss Harmannsdorf), der im selben Verlag seine Gedichte publizierte (1903). - Einband etwas berieben, Schnitt und Deckel nachgedunkelt. Alles in allem aber solides Exemplar. - Auf der letzten Seite ganz zarte Stenographie-Anmerkungen mit hellem Bleistift, wahrscheinlich von Lorenz. - (Bankverbindungen in Österreich und Deutschland)

      1902. SMOLLETT, Tobias. The Works. New York: George D. Sproul, 1902. Twelve volumes. Octavo, contemporary full crushed green morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines and boards with inlaid red and yellow morocco roses, raised bands, richly floral gilt dentelles, red morocco doublures with inlaid white and green morocco flowers, marbled extra endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $5000.Deluxe “Hand-Made Edition” of Smollett’s works, number 10 of 150 sets, illustrated with 48 plates (double-suite, one on mounted Japan tissue; one frontispiece in each volume in color), very beautifully bound by Trautz-Bauzonnet.“Like Richardson and Fielding, [Smollett] was a critic of manners; but being a ‘lousy Scot’ and a surgeon to boot he lacked entrée to high society and wrote always as an external observer and critic. A born storyteller, he paid little attention to premeditated effects; his narrative and descriptive gifts were sufficient to keep readers keenly interested and amused… For inventiveness and diversity of episode, vivid particularlity of detail to the point of caricature and energy of style, Smollett is hardly excelled. He is to the 18th-century novel what Hogarth is to painting—a savage realist with an eye for eccentric character, which he discovers in all classes” (Baugh et al., 961-62). This set presents his complete works, including the autobiographical Roderick Random (1748), the Cervantes-inspired Adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves (1760-61) and his experimental triumph The Expedition of Humphry Clinker (1771), esteemed as one of “the greatest masterpieces of English fiction” (Baugh et al., 964). Illustrated with four plates in each volume in double-suite (one on mounted Japan tissue; one frontispiece in each volume in color), 48 plates in all. The set is splendidly bound in full morocco, elaborately gilt-tooled with intricate floral designs and bearing floral morocco inlays on the boards. Spines uniformly toned to brown. A fine set, most elegantly bound.

      Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1902. ONE OF 325 COPIES on paper (and 25 on vellum). This is one of the 26 intriguing (and obviously uncommon) examples Tidcombe has identified as imitation Doves bindings, a group of handsomely executed volumes that continue to be mysterious. It differs from its fellows by offering significantly more in the way of gilt decoration. The work here is the fourth publication of the Doves Press, a volume that gathers together a number of poems by Tennyson, written at various times in his long life and all reflecting his abiding interest in Homer and Greek myth. The collection is framed by two short translations of passages from Homer's "Iliad," both featuring images of fire. Two original poems concern the tragic figure of Oenone, the first love of Paris, and two are inspired by the "Odyssey." The other three treat, in turn, the figure of the Theban seer Tiresias; Tithonus, lover of the goddess of Dawn; and the myth of the theft of Persephone by Death.. 233 x 165 mm. (9 1/4 x 6 1/2"). 55, [1] pp. ONE OF 325 COPIES on paper (and 25 on vellum). EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE DARK BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, IN THE STYLE OF THE DOVES BINDERY (stamp-signed and dated 1909 on rear turn-in), covers with gilt frame formed by interlocking double rules, side- and cornerpieces with oakleaf clusters accented by open circles and solid dots, large double gilt-rule lozenge in central panel, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with open circle at center, an oakleaf cluster extending above and below it, dots in corners, gilt vertical titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins with oakleaf clusters at corners, all edges gilt and gauffered with two rows of dots. In a blue cloth slipcase. Tomkinson, p. 45; Tidcombe DP-4. For the binding: Tidcombe, p. 463 The usual faint offsetting from the facing turn-ins on the front and rear free endpaper, half a dozen leaves with minor foxing just to the lower fore-edge corner, otherwise VERY FINE, the text clean, fresh, and smooth, and the lovely binding especially lustrous and virtually unworn. This is one of the 26 intriguing (and obviously uncommon) examples Tidcombe has identified as imitation Doves bindings, a group of handsomely executed volumes that continue to be mysterious. It differs from its fellows by offering significantly more in the way of gilt decoration.
