        Photograph album documenting life in Cuba following the Spanish-American War

      Ramon Corral, S. A. Cohner and other Havana photographers, Cuba 1902 - This large album (12" x 15") contains 48 pages filled with 93 photographs. All but nine of the photos measure at least 4.25" x 6.75" with 26 measuring around 6" x 8.25" and 22 measuring approximately 7.5" x 9". The photographs are in nice shape, a few have some rippling and/or light fading. The album is also in very good condition with some wear to the cover and small edge-tears and rippling to some pages. The photographs, taken by Havana photographers including Ramon Corral and S. A. Cohner, were likely compiled by an officer or civilian who was part of the U.S. occupying force as the collection has a definite North American tone including photo-prints of General Leonard Wood and President Roosevelt affixed to the front endpapers. The photographs begin shortly before the war as one shows the U.S.S. Maine entering Havana harbor and another shows the Spanish Cruiser Viscaya departing. The album concludes around 1902 with the ending of the U. S. Occupation. Highlights include * A group image of General Ludlow, the Military Governor of Havana during part of the occupation, and his staff; * A group image of Maximo Gomez y Baez, the Generalísimo of the Cuban Army, during its fight for independence from Spain; * Several images of El Morro, the fortress guarding the entrance to Havana harbor; * Two images showing the wreck of the Battleship Maine after it was blown-up; * A crowd of Cubans removing the statue of Queen Isabela II from its pedesta; * Many images of U. S. soldiers in Havana including the Army tent-headquarters at El Palacio de las Capitanes Generales; * Two images of what appear to be Cuban soldiers and dignitaries (likely as part of the 1899 ceremonies to honor Maximo Gomez and the fourth anniversary of start of the Cuban revolution against Spain); * Three images of the magnificent funeral possession accorded Calixto Garcia (the famous Cuban general referenced in Elbert Hubbard's famous essay, A Message to Garcia), * Important Havana buildings including the Teatro Tacon and Mascotte Hotel; * Three images of the entrance to the Colon Cemetery and its gigantic boneyard; * Peasant huts, a sugar cane field, basket weaver, vendors, street scened, storefronts, market stalls, and more. This is an important visual record of life in Cuba immediately following the Spanish-American War as seen through the lenses of local photographers and 'curated' by an occupying U. S. national. Scarce. As of 2016, no similar Cuban occupation albums are in the trade and neither ABPC nor Rare Book Hub reflect any auction records. OCLC shows one institutional holding of a similar but smaller album. A number of indivisual S. A. Cohner and Ramon Corral photographs of Havana during this period are also in the Eola Willis Cuban Photograph Collection at the College of Charleston Libraries.

        [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. .

Deux volumes in-8°; pp. (4), 406; pp. (4), 492; demi maroquin et plats marbrés, coupes légèrement frottées, dos à nerfs, quelques dorures au dos en pied et tête, deux pièces de titre contrastées, gardes de couleur, tranches marbrées, quelques brunissures et une petite fente réparée sur le faux titre du T. I, tranches légèrement empoussiérées, sinon propre et frais, très bon exemplaire. Édition originale. C'est ici la seconde oeuvre majeure de Pareto et une analyse des différents types de socialisme. Le but de cet ouvrage était d'exposer des critiques approfondies d'opinions libérales et par conséquent de toute doctrine basée uniquement sur la raison. Pareto maintint que le socialisme tirait avantage du désir....de vivre dans un monde meilleur. De cette facon le socialisme était construit sur des mythes puissants et des formules politiques qui pouvaient être utilisées pour inciter les masses à l'action et, à travers cette action, opérer de réels changements dans chaque secteur de la vie individuelle et collective....Le libéralisme fait appel à la raison, le socialisme joue sur les sentiments....(New Palgrave III, p. 802).

The Stewart's immigrated from Ireland to settle on the Otonabee River in Douro Township in 1822. The Stewarts were among the first European families to settle in the Peterborough- Lakefield region in the first half of the nineteenth century and to make a go of it; their neighbours included the Traills, Moodies, and Stricklands. "The book is full of the day-to-day life of the family, the way in which the children of the first generation suffered as they were drawn into the laborious life of the farm, the easing of strain with the coming of additional settlement (the founding of Peterborough in 1825), and the later scattering of the children to new and more settled homes." - Story, Oxford Companion to Canadian History and Literature. Dunlop, Eleanor (nee Stewart), 1819-1907, was the second daughter of Thomas and Frances Stewart. In 1845, "Ellen," as her close friend Catharine Parr Traill called her, married Charles Dunlop (1817-1906), a successful Otonabee farmer.

        The Satyricon of Petronius A New Translation with Introduction and Notes

      Paris: Charles Carrington,, 1902. Octavo. Publisher's half vellum, brown morocco spine labels gilt, fleuron gilt to spine, marbled sides and endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Contemporary ex-libris to front pastedown, partially removed. Covers lightly rubbed and dust soiled, internally sound and fresh, an excellent copy. First edition, in the publisher's deluxe half vellum, of this translation (falsely attributed by the publisher to "Sebastian Melmoth", a.k.a. Oscar Wilde) of the Satyricon of Petronius, one of the few surviving novels of Classical Rome, from a limited edition of 515 copies, this one of 440 on French hand made paper. Gaius Petronius (c.27-66 AD), Emperor Nero's official arbiter elegantiarum, who was accused of treason by jealous fellow-courtiers and forced to commit suicide, was indeed a lifelong fascination for Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), himself the arbiter elegantiarum of his own age, who had been denounced and destroyed by the prudish hypocrisy of his contemporaries. Wilde indeed boasted of having read the Satyricon in the original Latin, and, moreover, in his Picture of Dorian Gray, explicitly identifies his central character as having "found, indeed, a subtle pleasure in the thought that he may really become to the London of his own day what to imperial Neronian Rome the author of the Satyricon once had been". The connections between Wilde and the Satyricon were sufficiently close and sufficiently well known to make this attribution by the publisher Carrington (who knew and worked with both Wilde and Robert Ross) of a posthumously published translation by Wilde seem highly plausible and appealing. However, it is now understood (see Rod Boroughs, English Literature in Translation, 1880-1920, vol. 38 issue 1, p8, 1995) that Carrington's attribution to "Sebastian Melmoth" (Wilde's Parisian pseudonym, a name revealingly confected from martyred homosexual heart-throb Saint Sebastian and the eponymous Faustian character in his great-uncle Charles Maturin's gothic novel Melmoth the Wanderer, 1820) was a clever hoax. Nevertheless the production is an appealing part of the Wildean mythos, and a beautiful book at that. Carrington, in his foreword, writes moroever of the hypocrisy of public morals in terms Wilde himself would have appreciated all too keenly: "Those persons likely to experience the greatest delight in conning over this book privately will be the first to decry it most vehemently in public." He notes that this translation is the first "literal and unexpurgated version", and warns that "the attitude of contemporaries towards Petronius and the study of the "Satyricon" [is] a sort of moral Barometer, whereby to gauge the degree of emancipation attained by successive Centuries from the thraldom of conventional prudery." A superb copy in an attractive contemporary binding of this scarce and appealing text, no copy of which is recorded at auction since 1989.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. [Berlin], 3. VII. 1902.

      1902. 1 S. Gr.-8vo. An den Schriftsteller Karl Klammer: "Sie müssen mich für den schlechtesten aller Menschen halten, während ich in Wirklichkeit nur der meistbeschäftigte bin. Ich habe mich wirklich so sehr über Ihr Dichtblatt gefreut und wollte Ihnen ausführlich darüber schreiben - da wurd ich krank, obwohl ich zu allem weniger Zeit gehabt hätte wie dazu. Ich mußte den Baudelaire für Seemann fertigstellen, dazu viel andere Arbeit. Und heute kann ich Ihnen nur die Correctur senden mit der Bitte sie mir baldigst zu retournieren [...]".
