        TOLD BY THE DEATH'S HEAD: A ROMANTIC TALE ... Translated by S. E. Boggs

      London: Grant Richards, n.d. [1902].. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1-4] 5-348 [349-352: blank] [note: last two leaves are blanks], four inserted plates with illustrations by Charles Hope Provost, original decorated gray cloth, front panel stamped in light green, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition in English, British issue. Title leaf is a cancel; appears to be made up from sheets of the 1902 Saalfield edition. A man condemned to death stays his execution by confessing to twenty-one crimes and relating the particulars of each in such a way as to be absolved of all but the very last charge, for which he is shot. The author invokes a pro-forma fantastic premise at the beginning by explaining that the stories were related to him by the hero's skull. Several feature supernatural and fantasy motifs. "With the Templars" has an extended description of a sacrilegious orgy in the cellar of a Templar monastery attended by infamous women of history. "Maimuna, and Danesh" has an Arabian-Nights-style dream sequence. "In Satan's Realm" describes the hero's adventures among satyrs and witches. Magic coins and rings are involved in an exchange of bodies made by the hero near the end of the book ("The Exchange of Bodies"). "Jokai seemed the emissary of an Oriental magician. He was the storyteller not of schemes but of dreams ..." - Remenyi, Hungarian Writers and Literature, p. 166. Bleiler (1948), p. 164. Reginald 07966. Owner's signature on front free endpaper. Endpapers just a bit tanned, a nearly fine copy. (#148013)

        WEAVING THE WEB

      London,: Ward, Lock & Co., Limited. Bound in original decorated blue cloth with gilt lettering. 1902. 1st edition. hb. Small 8vo, pp. 336. . Bleiler notes in Science Fiction: The Early Years (pp. 490-491) that the name "Huan Me" is "probably a pseudonym for a British author, perhaps to be read 'you and me'. A fairly frequent contributor of sensational fiction to the British variety magazines around the turn of the century". The pseudonym "Huan Me" is not listed in any of the standard reference works on pseudonyms, viz. Atkinson, "Dictionary of Literary Pseudonyms"; Sharp, "Pseudonyms and Personal Nicknames"; Halkett and Laing, "A Dictionary of Anonymous and Pseudonymous Literature of Great Britain". This title not in Bleiler, although referenced in Hubin (p. 283). It is a scarce title; OCLC lists only one copy in an American library (N.Y. Univ.). Five other novels have been attributed to this author. Three of five titles currently offered for sale on the internet are, in fact, photocopies of short stories by this author. Only two books presently appear for sale ("A Diplomatic Woman" and "The Jewel of Death"). Our copy of "Weaving the Web" shows rubbing to extremities and some soiling to rear board. The endpapers are clean, although the front hinge is a bit weak. Both of the inserted plates are present, although the binding is cracking at the placement of the second plate. The contents are clean, with no previous owner's markings. Overall, in good plus condition. No dust jacket. .

        Innen - Dekoration. Revue mensuelle illustrée pour la décoration intérieure de l'habitation moderne. Vol. I - 1902

      Alex Koch - Charles Eitel, Darmstadt - Paris 1902 - La prima rara annata dell'edizione in lingua francese (che per diversi anni si affiancò all'edizione in lingua tedesca impressa a Darmstadt) di questa rivista dedicata alla decorazione d'interni diretta da Alexander Koch con la collaborazione di Henry Van de Velde. 12 numeri in un vol. in-4° (310x240mm), pp. 316, (6) di indice dell'annata + 144 di pubblicità illustrate, raffinata legatura del tempo in stoffa a decori floreali Liberty in bicromia. Sguardie decorate. Interamente illustrato con tavv. a colori f.t. (anche su doppia pag.) e in b.n. n.t. e f.t. Condizioni perfette. I contributi del periodico, dovuti in molti casi alla penna dello stesso Van de Velde, danno conto del grande rinnovamento del gusto che stava avvenendo, agli albori del XX secolo, nell'architettura, nell'arredamento d'interni e nelle arti decorative e applicate in generale. Fra i temi toccati in questa prima annata: il mobilio, le arti industriali, George de Feure, l'Esposizione di Torino del 1902, Josef Hoffmann, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, ecc. Early on, Belgian architect Henry van de Velde contributed substantially to Innendekoration and for some years a French-language edition of the journal also appeared. Koch's journals included work from across Europe and, like many German-language publications of the period, showed a strong interest in up-to-date British design. For a time, Koch appears to have been particularly fond of Mackintosh and M. H. Bailie Scott. Koch's journals promoted and were supported by the avant-garde fine and decorative art and architecture movement at the Darmstadt Artists' Colony on the Mathildenhöhe, established in 1898 under the patronage of Duke Ernst Ludwig of Hessen (dal sito dell'Università di Glasgow relativo a Charles Rennie Mackintosh, di cui sono qui riprodotte numerose opere).

      1902 - "Que Dieu vous donne le bonheur" (May God Grant you happiness or success or good fortune) showing her three quarters length in the role of Sardou's Gismonda, in a magnificent Arts and Crafts frame, 6½" x 4¼", in frame 14" x 10", no place, The New York Times of 26th November 1894 wrote "BERNHARDT AS GISMONDA; Paris Enthusiastic Over Her Acting in Sardou's Play. GREATEST OF HER ARTISTIC TRIUMPHS. It would be easy to say that Sardou had never been thus triumphant, Bernhardt never so perfect, stage mounting never more exquisitely beautiful, or costumes as magnificent, and, finally, that no play has ever been better cast than "Gismonda." This would be no exaggeration; it would be only the truth, but the subject demands minute description."

        Bella oleografia originale raffigurante una scena dell'opera "Tosca" di Giacomo Puccini. 1902 circa.

      1902 - Oleografia originale in formato cm.53x78, raffigurante la scena della morte di Scarpia per mano di Floria Tosca alla fine del secondo atto dell'opera pucciniana. Gradevole policromia, in cornice coeva lavorata a mano, in formato cm.74x99, con cimasa. Insieme di notevole impatto visivo. L?oleografia è una stampa eseguita da matrici di pietra litografica, generalmente marna calcarea, mediante l'utilizzo di inchiostri grassi che, una volta asciutti, mantengono una lucidità tipica del colore a olio. Il procedimento consiste nella sovrapposizione di più immagini di diversi colori tracciate su lastre di pietra diverse: il prodotto finito può dare quindi l?illusione di essere un vero dipinto. Nata nel 1838, la tecnica oleografica permetterà un'ampia diffusione di immagini religiose, storiche, operistiche o popolari, grazie ad una capillare distribuzione casa per casa, svolta principalmente da venditori ambulanti, soprattutto trentini. 3000 gr.

Dunkelroter Lederband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Linienrahmen auf den Deckeln, goldgeprägtem Autornamen und Titel über einer goldgeprägten Jugendstilfilete auf dem Vorderdeckel sowie Kopfgoldschnitt.

Caspari, original pictorial wrappers printed in black, all edges untrimmed; original pictorial green cloth. front and spine panels stamped in black,all edges stained black, green endpapers. First edition. A utopian novel presenting a monistic world view. "In these books, Hart combined his own imaginative cultural history with attempts to present monism in the most broadly accessible and least offensive way. For example, unlike Wille and Bölsche, Hart was quick to discard the notion that human freedom is subject to the causal laws of nature. Rather, Hart suggested that causality itself is an illusion that disappears when one acquires the monist 'perspective of eternity.' With aim to replicate his Friedrichschlagen experience and to spread, in Wille's words, the 'Kameradschaft zwischen Kopfarbeitern und begabten Handarbeitern aber auch geistvollen Vertretern des Reichtums,' Hart was hard pressed to avoid political questions. In DER NEUE GOTT, he treated politics with disdain, scorning the politician as one who sees 'nur die engeren und beschränkteren politischen und sozialen Zustände vor Augen.'" - Eric Paul Jacobson, Cosmology to Ecology: The Monist World-view in Germany from 1770-1930, pp. 250. Julius Hart and his brother Heinrich were noted literary critics of their time who founded the "Neue Gemeinschaft" - "new community" - a neo-romantic circle of writers.

        Memoirs of the life of Sir Walter Scott.

      Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1902. Hardcover. 8vo. 5 volumes. With 10 plates (2 per volume). “The Cambridge Edition”. Bound in half dark brown calf with marbled boards and end papers. Spines are brightly gilt in compartments. Top edge is gilt. The binding is fresh with very little wear; some spots of fading are present. Many leaves are unopened. The outer edge of an occasional leaf is a bit rough; interior pages are otherwise clean. John Gibson Lockhart (1794-1854) was an English minister, an author, and the son-in-law of Sir Walter Scott. The DNB states that his “Memoirs of the life of Sir Walter Scott” [first published, 1837-38 in 7 volumes] “…may safely be described as, next to Boswell's ‘Johnson', the best [biography] in the language.” The publisher's note to this 1902 edition specifies that “…the text has been annotated by fuller accounts of many of the persons to whom Scott or Lockhart refer, and very many passages have been expanded or illuminated by extracts from Scott's letters and journals, and from a variety of books and articles bearing upon the subject… All the editor's work is indicated by its enclosure in brackets. Lockhart's later notes are indicated by the years 1839, 1845, and 1848, enclosed in parentheses.”
