He exhibited frequently at Dowdeswell and Dowdeswell's gallery in New Bond Street, where he had at least five solo exhibitions between 1896 and 1916. Later in his life his popularity as an artist waned,and he turned to teaching for his living. He taught at the Women's Department of King's College London from 1904 and in 1910, with Rex Vicat Cole, he founded the Byam Shaw and Vicat Cole School of Art later renamed simply the "Byam Shaw School of Art". Evelyn Shaw had an active role in the new school, teaching the miniatures class, her area of expertise. Shaw had had a long association with the artist and illustrator Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale, who taught at the new school.

        The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe.

      New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1902. Octavo, 10 volumes. One of 300 sets of the Arnheim Edition. Bound in half vellum, gilt titles to the spine, gilt decorations to the front panels; with gravure plates from paintings by F.S. Coburn; printed tissue guards; top edge gilt. In fine condition. A superior set. Edgar Allan Poe was a member of the American Romantic Movement of the Nineteenth Century. He is best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, and he is considered the inventor of the genres of detective fiction and, the then emerging, science fiction. The anguish in his fiction reflects the torment he experienced from his financial difficulties. Indeed, he was one of America's earliest practitioners of the short story, and he was the first popular American writer to attempt to live off the income of writing alone. In light of his unexpected but immense contributions, the Edgar Award is presented annually for distinguished work in the mystery genre.

        [Broadside]: Harvard Illustrated Magazine Out Today

      Cambridge: Harvard Illustrated Magazine. 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. .

        Fried. Krupp Essen-Ruhr [Photographies, brochures]

      selbstverlag 1902 - Grande chemise reliée format horizontal 31,5 x 39 cm, demi-chagrin à larges coins, avec filets, titre et sigle gravés en doré sur le premier plat de l'entreprise Krupp, sans date (circa 1890-1900). Elle contient 11 photographies originales en noir et blanc de divers formats (16x21, 18x25, 20x27, 20x29, marges blanches non comprises) en phototypie, contrecollées sur de grandes feuilles cartonnées à bords ronds 30,5 x 37,5cm. Clichés remarquables sur la vie quotidienne d'une maison de repos de l'entreprise, créée pour ses ouvriers en convalescence (promenades, repas, jeux en plein air, vues du bâtiment). Contient aussi : 3 grands feuillets d'instructions pour le concierge du bâtiment, 6 fascicules d'instructions pour le médecin, les infirmières (« Pflegeschwester), les comptables, réglement intérieur, feuille de régime alimentaire. + Deux brochures in-4 : « Die Krupp'schen Arbeiter-Colonien, 28pp. 40 figures in-texte, et « Wohnhaus für zwei Arbeiterfamilien mit volständiger innerer Einrichtung - Ausstellung Düsseldorf 1902 », 16pp. avec le dessin des habitations ouvrières et de leur ameublement. + 4 photographies originales contrecollées sur carton, 16,5 x 22,5cm, de 2 modèles de voitures d'attelages du constructeur H. Jacobi (son tampon sur les photos) dans une enveloppe. C'est un ensemble exceptionnel qui témoigne de la politique sociale lancée par le sidérurgiste Alfred Krupp (1812-1887) au milieu du XIXe siècle, faisant construire des cités ouvrières, des caisses d'assurances maladies, des hôpitaux, des magasins à prix réduits, des maisons de retraites pour ses ouvriers. En 1902, 70000 personnes travaillaient pour l'entreprise. La conception paternaliste de Krupp lui faisait considérer les ouvriers comme faisant partie de sa propriété. Sa politique sociale fut attaquée sur ce point, puisqu'elle visait aussi à maintenir une paix sociale en faveur de l'entreprise en échange de tous ces avantages et qu'il allait même jusqu'à leur donner des avis sur la politique et des consignes de votes. Krupp fut largement combattu par le Parti socialiste ouvrier allemand, qu'il craignait plus que les risques de banqueroute et la concurrence américaine. L'entreprise avait été fondée par Friedrich Krupp (1787-1826) à Essen, dans la Ruhr. Avec son esprit d'innovation, Alfred (1812-1887), son fils, en avait fait l'une des plus grandes aciéries du monde grâce au développement des chemins de fer, de la marine et des machines industrielles. C'est lui qui dessina le fameux logo de l'entreprise : trois essieux de chemins de fer superposés. Son fils, Friedrich Alfred Krupp (1854-1902) lui succéda, achetant d'autres entreprises et développant toujours plus les activités, en particulier en faveur des réalisations militaires (canons, blindage). C'est son nom qui est gravé sur le plat de la pochette, datant probablement du tout début du XXe siècle. Photos en bel état de conservation, des rousseurs éparses au bord de quelques cartons, au premier plat d'un des fascicules ; la grande pochette reliée contient d'importantes rousseurs sur le papier intérieur et les rabats, une déchirure au pli d'un des rabats, dos et bords des plats émoussés. // Superb pictures on the life of a rest home of the Krupp company, created for the workers in convalescence (walks, meals, outdoor games, views of the building). Also contains : 3 pages of instructions dor the caretaker, 6 parts of instructions (for doctor, nurses, accountants, internal rules, etc.), 2 brochures in-4 with the drawing of the labor houses and their furnishing + 4 original stills of carsof harnesses of the manufacturer H. Jacobi in an envelope. AN EXCEPTIONAL SET which shows of the social politic by Alfred Krupp in the middle of the XIXth century, building houses, for his workers, insurance fund deseases, hospitals, stores at reduced prices, retirement homes.

        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]

        THE PHOTOGRAPHIC TIMES

      NY: Scovil Manufacturing Company, 1902. First editions. 8vo. and 4tos., variable paginations, occasional mounted photographs and photogravure plates. A long but broken run of 30 complete volumes and additional loose issues as follows: Vol. 1, No. 1, January 1871 through Vol. 2, No. 24, December 1872 are loose issues with new wrappers, housed in a cloth clamshell box. Vol. 3, No. 25, January 1873 through Vol. 14, No. 168, December 1884 are newly bound in 6 red cloth volumes. Vol. 15, Nos. 175, 180, and 181 are loose in a cloth chemise. Vols. 17, 18, 21 through 32, 34, and 35 are bound in calf and cloth or marbled paper over boards, and Vols. 36 and 37 are bound in red cloth. A cloth clamshell box houses 4 loose issues: Vol. 33, No. 5; Vol. 38, No.4; Vol. 39, No. 1; and, Vol. 41, No. 5. Several issues are ex-library with either a bookplate or stamps on the margin or into a corner of a plate. A few hinges are rubbed. Very good. Initially, this journal was geared to the professional photographer as would be expected, since it was published by the Scovil Manufacturing Co.; the articles mirrored their concerns. Reviews and reports from photographic societies were a regular feature. First edited by Edward Wilson, the editorship transferred to John Thraill Taylor, who enlarged the scope in 1880, when it became THE PHOTOGRAPHIC TIMES AND AMERICAN PHOTOGRAPHER. By 1882, an original mounted photograph was inserted, and in 1887, the size was increased to a large quarto, and fine photomechanical illustrations began appearing. It was becoming the preeminent American journal. THE PHOTOGRAPHIC TIMES was first published in 1871 as a supplement of THE PHILADELPHIA PHOTOGRAPHER. It absorbed THE AMERICAN PHOTOGRAPHER in 1879 to become THE PHOTOGRAPHIC TIMES AND AMERICAN PHOTOGRAPHER. In 1902, it merged with ANTHONY'S BULLETIN to form THE PHOTOGRAPHIC TIMES BULLETIN. This periodical is most commonly cited as "THE PHOTOGRAPHIC TIMES, Photographic Times Publishing Association. Duplicates of a large number of unmarked issues and bound volumes are available. Please inquire.

        Fairy Tales: Vasilisa the Beautiful].

      Exped. Zagotovl. Gos. Bumag. Skt. Peterburg 1902 - Folio (32.5 x 25.5 cm). 12 pp., chromolithographs throughout, some of these full-page; some light spotting. Original chromolithographed wrappers; spine neatly repaired, covers slightly soiled, small black label to lower cover. Very good example of this beautiful children book, finely illustrated in colour. Over a four-year period Bilibin illustrated six tales using as backgrounds the typical Russian countryside and buildings: dark and luscious forests and meadows, blue ribbons of rivers, colourful medieval building, ancient monasteries and wood huts. He strove to create an artistic whole for the series by careful layout and design. He placed the illustrations within intricate frames of his own design, employing a variety of decorative motifs that imitate wood carvings and poker-work; and he selected and drew the ornamental lettering used on the cover and at the beginning of each tale. The books were released as thin, large-format publications in stiff wrappers and illustrated with colourful high quality chromolithographs. Bilibin's style has been frequently imitated and his approach to book design, where everything is subordinated to a single artistic concept, was very influential in the history of Russian book design (Golynets, pp. 6-7; 13-15).

        Records of The Intelligence Department of The Government of the North-West Provinces of India during the Mutiny of 1857,

      Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, , 1902. Including Correspondence with the Supreme Government, Dehli [sic], Cawnpore, and other Places. Preserved by, and now arranged under the Superintendence of Sir William Muir, then in Charge of the Intelligence Department, subsequently Lieutenant-Governor, North-West Provinces. Edited by William Coldstream. 2 volumes, large octavo. Original maroon diapered cloth, titles gilt to spines, blind panelling to sides, black endpapers. Bookplate of Richard Augustus Byrde, clergyman and headmaster of All Hallow's School, Honiton, 1883-1901 (d. 1906). Spines relined and the lettering sympathetically refurbished, light toning, a few trivial spots. A very good copy. First edition of this uncommon work. Muir's intelligence correspondence during the Mutiny, now deposited in Edinburgh University Library, remain an "important source for understanding the nature and course of the rising up to January 1858" (ODNB). Muir arrived in India in 1837 and was posted to the North-Western Provinces. His first twenty years of service were sound rather than exceptional, but "the sepoy mutiny and subsequent civil uprising of 1857?9 provided Muir with greater scope for initiative. On the death of Lieutenant-Governor John Russell Colvin shortly after rebel advances had necessitated the withdrawal of the European community into the Agra Fort, local responsibility was devolved to three middle-ranking civilians, including Muir. Special responsibility for intelligence made Muir also the nerve-centre for communications within and outside the region of revolt until British recovery began" (idem); his actions "held the British together at Agra during [the] siege" (Riddick). His subsequent process was steady, and his self-effacing character may have held him back, but he was eventually appointed to the provincial governorship in 1868, and retired to Britain in 1876. He is also remembered as one of the most eminent orientalists of his day, and his Life of Mahomet of History of Islam (1858), was for many years the standard biography of the Prophet in English.
