        With a Saucepan Over the Sea. Quaint and Delicious Recipes from the Kitchens of Foreign Countries.

      8vo., original decorative cloth lettered in gilt on spine and upper board, with very scarce dust wrapper. Illustrated with frontispice and 12 plates from photographs. Wrapper with some loss to spine and upper panel, some chipping, rubbing and sunning, nonetheless a scarce survival in any condition. First edition of this cookery book intended to introduce European cookery to Americans, drawing on recipes popular across the ages with everyone from kings to peasants. Written at the turn of the century and directed at a middle-class American audience, this book was intended to introduce European cookery in an accessible yet informative way. Lamenting the ridiculous decadence of many earlier European cookbooks, the editor, Adelaide Keen, encourages the reader to keep an open mind and explore some rustic foods, while still enjoying many healthy, interesting dishes that would be familiar even to European royalty. Included are such diverse recipes as lobster mulligatawny, chestnut soup, bacalao, sauer-braten, Alexander Dumas' recipe for salad, King Henry's shoe strings, and almond pudding.

      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.

      1902. Illustrated by C. D. Williams [1st and 3rd book] | Arthur I. Keller [2nd book]. New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1902 | 1905 | 1907. Original red cloth decorated in white. First Editions of all three novels that together make up Dixon's unabashedly racist Reconstruction Trilogy. Dixon, a native Tarheel, graduated from Wake Forest and became first a lawyer, then a legislator, and then a Baptist minister in North Carolina. THE LEOPARD'S SPOTS was his first novel "dealing with the race question in America"; it was followed in 1905 by THE CLANSMAN, which "was told from a virulently Southern point of view and painted the Ku Klux Klan as a band of dedicated knights extirpating an intolerable menace" [K&H]. THE TRAITOR is dedicated to "The Men of the South who suffered exile, imprisonment and death for the daring service they rendered our country as citizens of the Invisible Empire."~Published 37-to-42 years after the end of the war, these books (but especially THE CLANSMAN) were widely read, and -- with such famous episodes as Marion Lenoir (and her mother) leaping from a cliff after she was raped by a "Negro" -- helped to set back whatever progress had been made in race relations over those intervening years. But it was of course D. W. Griffith's masterful adaptation of THE CLANSMAN into the epochal 1914 silent film, "The Birth of a Nation," that would in large part be responsible for the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan -- and would cause these books to have an indirectly immense influence upon American race relations.~All three volumes are in FINE condition -- which is rather remarkable, given the tendency of the white cover pigment to erode (but not on these copies). Though it is controversial to offer Dixon's books today, they do represent a period of our history that is not to be forgotten. Loosely inserted into THE CLANSMAN is a signed note from Dixon to (Dean) Tatnall Brown of Haverford College.

        A monograph of the Turdidae, or family of Thrushes . edited and completed by R. Bowdler Sharpe.

      London Henry Sotheran 1902 - First edition. 2 volumes, 4to, photogravure portrait, 149 hand-coloured lithographed plates, heightened with gum arabic, by and after J.G. Keulemans, contemporary half red morocco gilt, spine gilt in compartments, top edge gilt, others uncut, lightly rubbed, an excellent set. One of the greatest of Mr Seebohm's discoveries in ornithology was the application of the character of the plumage of the young birds for the differentiation of the thrushes (Turdidae) from the Warblers (Sylvidae). Henry Seebohm (1832-1895) was a wealthy English businessman and prominent amateur ornithologist. He wrote two books on his travels to Siberia as well as a number of substantial ornithological monographs with hand-coloured plates, mostly by Keulemans. Keulemans began his career as a taxidermist providing stuffed birds to the State Museum of Natural History at Leiden. The director of that museum encouraged Keulemans to pursue his love of natural history, where he obtained a scientific appointment after an expedition to West Africa in 1865 and 1866. His accomplishments in illustration came to the notice of Richard Bowdler Sharpe, later a director of the British Museum, who encouraged him to move to England. Keulemans quickly achieved wide recognition and established himself as the most popular bird artist of the late Victorian period.

        [Loose Photo Album Pages]: Alabama

      Alabama: , 1902-1907. Alabama. 1902-1907. Six loose album pages containing 60 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring around 3" x 3", some with captions. Near fine photos with some fading.A collection of photos beginning in 1902 revolving around a family from Alabama. The earliest photos are taken in Selma and show images of the Schuh-Miller Lumber Company including a log train, their "first office," and the lumber yard itself. The most obvious inference is that these images were taken by one of the owners of the lumberyard. The next section of photos from 1903 show the family around their home. One of these photos shows the family's children posed with their African-American maids. An uncaptioned page shows some horse drawn wagons with animals including elephants which appear to be part of a circus. Other photos show African-Americans working on a railroad and another page of African-Americans on a Selma street. A page from 1907 shows the state funeral of Senator John Tyler Morgan. These photos are captioned "hearse containing Morgan's body," "Alabama National Guard leading Senator Morgan's funeral carriage," and "temporary tent over Morgan's grave."An interesting collection of photographs kept by an Alabama family at the turn of the century. .

Included among the original photographs are images of the San Gabriel Mission and several pictures of parks in Los Angeles, including West Lake Park (now MacArthur Park), East Lake Park (now Lincoln Park), Elysian Park, and Echo Park. Fourteen of the photographs show scenes of the 1902 Tournament of Roses parade, including images of horse-drawn floats, judges in motorized vehicles festooned with flowers, and a shot of the several members of the University of Michigan football team in a wagon. There is also a photograph of Santa Barbara, one of a parade of the 7th Regiment of California volunteers, another of the Golden Gate, and one of ostriches at a South Pasadena ostrich farm. One of the images depicts the woman who assembled the album and likely took the photographs, Nina Lawry.

        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)

      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).
