        Pride and Prejudice

      London : George Allen , 1903 A fair copy of the 3rd issue of the 'Peacock Edition' of Pride and Prejudice with illustrations by Hugh Thomson. In the original green decorative cloth binding with spectacular gilt peacock design to front board and gilt designs to spine. Top page edges gilt. The binding is clean and sound, but the designs are slightly faded; there is a little pulling to the spine; slight scuff to back board and light wear to corners. The original endpapers are present. The fep has a very interesting inscription. This copy was bought in 1904 and at the time, the suffragettes were beginning to turn to direct action to raise awareness of women's right to vote. The inscription, dated Xmas 1904, begins 'To Elizabeth, with nothing of the New Woman about her ..' There is a little splitting of the endpapers at the joints with the book block, and the book is a little shaken, with the stitching visible at some points, but the binding is sound. Contents are generally clean and in good to very good condition. There is some spotting between pp 474-476, and some spotting to the final blank. Please enquire if you would like to see more images.

        [Original Photograph Album of Mrs. Dow's School for Girls in Briarcliff Manor, NY]

      Briarcliff Manor, NY, [ca. 1903-1906]. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good +. Oblong 4to. black cloth commercial album. Post binding. 58 black-and-white photographs, the majority measuring 6.75? x 4.75? approx., mounted recto and verso to 29 cloth-hinged card leaves. Five additional photographs loosely laid-in. Lower binding post perished. Mild wear to outer cloth. One print faded. Otherwise contents clean, well preserved. Very good. An early photo album of Mrs. Dow's School for Girls, a college preparatory boarding school in Briarcliff Manor, NY. Given quality and uniformity of images, likely one of a small number produced for students of one of the institution's first graduating classes, perhaps as a yearbook or memento of the theater club. Mary Elizabeth Dunning Dow, upon resigning her position as head of the prestigious Miss Porter's School in Farmington, CT in 1903, and at the bequest of prominent Briarcliff businessman Walter M. Law, took with her the majority of that institution's students and teachers to begin this school. Interim classes were conducted in Law's famed resort complex Briarcliff Lodge until construction of a new campus was completed in 1905. Included here are three, circa-1906 interior views of the newly finished Dow Hall and several additional views of dorm room, gymnasium and other interiors at Farmington and Briarcliffe. The remaining images are largely of student body group shots and theater department productions. Each is sharp, clear, and well composed, with theater shots often exhibiting elaborate, sometimes unusual set and costume designs. The album lacks notation, though the ownership label of a Miss Mary Bigelow Schultz is mounted inside and the verso of a single loose photograph bears 11 manuscript names, identifying the students. One of those identified is a Leonore Brewer, who eventually became a prominent Chicago philanthropist. A privately printed memorial booklet in her honor (?Leonore Brewer Cudahy: A Memorial? [1933] - provided) briefly describes the transition from Farmington to Briarcliff: ?In time, Nora and her sister [Leonore] left home for a finishing school in Connecticut, which that year [1903] migrated to Briarcliff, New York? (16). The school would grow to include post-secondary curriculum and be renamed Briarcliff College, gaining accreditation as a four year school in 1957. It folded in 1977 and was absorbed by nearby Pace University, which continues to utilize the original Dow Hall today as a co-ed dormitory. While presumably a number of copies of this album may have been produced, OCLC notes no similar holdings.

        Cartolina autografa inviata a Pisa al direttore d'orchestra Leopoldo Mugnone dal musicista Giacomo Puccini, datata 4 luglio 1903.

      Cartolina postale, indirizzata al M° Mugnone a Pisa. Al recto un lungo messaggio ad inchiostro leggermente sbiadito: "Caro Popetto, non vieni a vedermi prima di salparti? Anch'io vorrei andarmene. Attendo che il medico mi dia il permesso di assentarmi, vorrei montagnarmi, e penso al piano..." Prosegue segnalando la sua volontà di recarsi in vacanza ai Bagni di Lucca o all'Abetone, come suo solito, chiedendo, sempre in riferimento al pianoforte "potrei - potrebbero portarmi il Rönisch?" (strumento di fabbricazione tedesca). A firma "Giacomo". Al 'indirizzo di Mugnone, sempre stilato a mano da Puccini. Puccini conosceva il coetaneo Leopoldo Mugnone (Napoli, 1858 - 1941) sin dai suoi anni milanesi. Mugnone diresse molte opere pucciniane, soprattutto al Covent Garden di Londra, e fu lui a dirigere la prima assoluta di "Tosca" al Teatro Costanzi di Roma nel 1900. Riguardo ai suoi progetti vacanzieri, Puccini si recò poi effettivamente a Boscolungo, nei pressi dell'Abetone, nell'agosto di quell'anno. Codice libreria 128190.

        Histoire de la langue universelle.

      - Paris, Hachette et Cie, 1903. In-8, demi-maroquin fauve, dos à 5 nerfs orné de fleurons ajourés dorés entre-nerfs, double filets dorés en bordure des plats, tête dorée, couvertures conservées (reliure de l'époque signée Asper, Genève), xxx, (1) f., 576 p. Edition originale de premier tirage, rare, de cet ouvrage monumental qui recense et étudie plus de soixante langues "universelles" que les auteurs répartissent en deux catégories principales: les "systèmes a posteriori", constitués de langues artificielles construites à partir de langues existantes (le volapük ou l'espéranto), et les "systèmes a priori", constitués de langues élaborées de toutes pièces. Leopold Leau était linguiste et mathématicien. Egalement mathématicien de renom, professeur de philosophie, éditeur de Leibnitz et logicien, Louis Couturat devint, à partir de 1907, l’un des participants majeurs du mouvement de création de l'Ido, version de l’espéranto considérée comme une amélioration significative. En complément à ses travaux théoriques, il avait convoqué en 1900 à Paris, un Congrès international de philosophie où fut créée la ‘Délégation pour l’adoption d’une langue auxiliaire internationale’, organisme qui exercera un rôle moteur pour le développement d’une langue internationale. Pacifiste, Couturat fut l’une des premières victimes de la Première Guerre mondiale: sa voiture fut en effet heurtée par un véhicule portant les ordres de mobilisation de l'armée française. (DSB, III, p. 456). Très bel exemplaire, non rogné, parfaitement relié par Hans Asper, l'un des meilleurs relieurs genevois de la période. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come

      NY: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1903. Very Rare Book. Another indicator of it's rarity is the name of the Publisher. Publisher is Grosset & Dunlap of New York.Grosset & Dunlap is a United States book publisher founded in 1898. Book is in tack. Will need some restoration. Imaging finding a book from the late 1800 with a love note dedicating this book to Miss Carrie Duke. Rare edition thus. Hardcover. Orig. spine that is intact but needs restoration. Front and back cover intact. I searched the internet intensively and found pictures of first editions HOWEVER none of them had the love dedication note or the black trim around the title of the book. Information on Miss Carrie Duke listed below:Woman's Work in Kentucky." by Mrs. Eugenia Dunlap Potts. Publication: Eagle, Mary Kavanaugh Oldham, ed. The Congress of Women: Held in the Woman's Building, World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, U. S. A., 1893. Chicago, Ill: Monarch Book Company, 1894. pp. 562-568.Susannah Hart, the aunt of Mrs. Henry Clay, raised and pulled the flax which she wove and spun into her wedding gown, with an art so clever that she could draw the width through her wedding ring. She belonged to the wealthiest of those early families of note, and was the wife of Gov. Isaac Shelby. She died at the age of seventy-two years at "Travelers' Rest," the grand old homestead which has never passed out of the Shelby family. She was the mother of ten children, and her descendants are widely scattered. Mary Hopkins Cabell Breckinridge was a contemporary whose work can never die. Hers were not deeds of daring nor of tragic from the lurking Indian. Her power was in her eloquent conversation, her strong opinions, her decided views of duty. Her sons are orators and statesmen; her daughters are ambitious and progressive. Margaret Breckinridge, a granddaughter, devoted heart and hands to hospital work during the war of the Blue and the Grey; and by her gentle, self-sacrificing ministering was named the "Angel of the hospitals." She said, "Shall men die by thousands for their country and no woman risk her life?" Still a younger generation is led by Miss Sophronisba Breckinridge, who after years of travel in Europe, studied law in her father's office. Mrs. Catherine Hunt, the chatelaine of one of Lexington's proud homes, reigned a queen in her domain. The train of servants, the management of her handsome estate and all the demands upon the mistress of such possessions, called for executive ability of rare degree. Hers was the thinking head and the guiding hand. The Baroness Burdett Coutts says: "Woman may be allowed to lead in acts of charity," and right nobly has she set this example. This woman, Mrs. Hunt, used her prerogative here. Sixty-one years ago, when cholera wellnigh depopulated the Blue Grass capital, she went forth on pious mission bent. Coming upon three desolate little children, whose parents lay dead, she said to a friend: "What shall we do with them? Let us buy them a home." She opened her purse and established the Orphans' Home, Lexington's oldest charitable institution, where many little feet have found a resting place. Mrs. Henrietta Hunt Morgan was her daughter, and the Hon. Francis Kay Hunt, of legal celebrity, was her worthy son. Mrs. Morgan presided over her household much after the manner of her bringing up. She was the mother of a remarkable family. Her sons were Gen. John Hunt Morgan, Col. Calvin Morgan, Capt. Charlton Hunt Morgan, and Lieut. Thomas Morgan. Her daughters were the wives of Gen. A. P. Hill and of Gen. Basil W. Duke. Behold the evolution of the Kentucky girl, if I may so term the greater liberty of today! Mrs. Henrietta Morgan Duke, of Louisville, Ky., one of our commissioners, is a woman of incomparable qualities of heart and brain. She reflects the grandmother and mother in strength of character and in executive ability. Times have changed, and she has risen to the demands. Her young daughter, Miss Carrie Duke, the violin virtuoso, represents the fourth generation of this family. The ancient code would have held her captive, but the liberty of the present sent her abroad to develop the divine genius that now sways multitudes. Another young descendant of Mrs. Hunt is Miss Lucy Lee Hill, a World's Fair Commissioner, who bravely and briskly went about the work of collecting exhibits; faithfully she has presided at the state building. Yet another great-granddaughter is Miss Eleanor Howard Morgan, daughter of Capt. Charlton Morgan, who entered Bryn Mawr College, where her scientist brother, Dr. Thomas Morgan, holds the chair of biology. This young girl perfectly illustrates the fact that developing a woman's brain does not necessarily rob her of feminine charm. No lily of the valley, breathing its delicate fragrance far below the gaze of man, is more modestly environed; yet her influence pervades all the atmosphere about her. She inherits, not the dash of her uncle, the cavalry chief, but the steady glow of woman's star when lit by the brilliancy of intellectual fireSince I don't have a true value of this book, it may be priceless. I have decided to start at $5000.00.

        Autograph Note Signed.

      The most famous expatriate of them all was this experimental novelist, playwright and poet who removed to Paris in 1903 and remained there for the rest of her life; an influential mentor, critic and literary innovator, she championed Modernist literature and art and is today often remembered for her 1933 memoir "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas" and her often-quoted "rose is a rose is a rose" sentiment. ANS, 1p, 5¼" X 8", Bilignin France, n.y. Very good. On imprinted "Bilignin / Par Belley / Ain" letterhead, Stein pens a note in her horrid scrawl in brown ink to admirer Arnold F. Gates (1914-93, noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar). Reads in part: "Thanks for your birthday letter it gave me a lot of pleasure, I like the mixture of Ohio and [ ? ], it brings everything closer...." Signed with her usual illegible scribble. A nice example, and while undated quite likely of mid-1930s vintage. Bilignin is a small village in France near the Swiss border where Stein and her companion Toklas spent the summers.

        The Riddle Of The Sands (First UK Edition)

      The First UK printing published by London, Smith Elders & Co.in 1903.The BOOK is in VERY GOOD+ condition. 336pp. + 4pp ads. Publisher's decorated black cloth with titles in white to the spine though quite rubbed as is lamentably often the case.Light bumping to extremities, rubbing to spine not affecting the integrity of the book.Decorated boards sharp, a little bit of inoffensive wear here and there.Internally free from inscriptions and erasures.There is the expected occasional light spotting.Illustrated with fold out maps and charts which are all present.Frontispiece folding chart a trifle creased with some light soiling to the title page.Housed in a custom slander box.A very good copy of the first edition of a book somewhat contentiously described as the first modern espionage novel, vying for the title with Kipling's Kim, published two years earlier. Originally written after he returned injured from action in South Africa and first published in 1903 the novel of imminent conflict with Germany was highly influential and is actually credited with the founding of British naval bases at Invergordon and Scapa Flow; newly regarded as strategically important after examination of the scenarios in Childer's novel. Childers was of course a staunch advocate of Irish Home Rule and was found guilty of possessing a firearm in contravention of the Irish Emergency Powers Resolution and sentenced to death by firing squad in 1922.The book was adapted in 1979 into a movie starring Michael York and Simon MacCorkindale. An exceptionally scarce and important title to find in any condition.Highly collectible with such attributes. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.

Sie lebte als Bilderbuchdhkünstlerin, Malerin und Schriftstellerin in Berlin. Olfers war eine Naturbegabung der es gelang eine naive Bildsprache für märchenhafte und naturpoetische Stoffe zu entwickeln, in der sie in scheinbar idyllischen Handlungen hintergründe Angste und Gefährdungen mit einfachen zeichnerischen Mitteln formulierte: mit diesem Talent folgte Olfers der psychologischen Tradition der deutschen Romantik (sie verkehrte in ihrer Jugend im Kreis der Töchter von Bettina von Arnim).

        April Twilights

      Boston: Richard G. Badger, The Gorham Press, 1903. First edition. Original boards, cover and spine labels. A little bit of darkening to the spine, and discoloration of the endpapers, but a fine copy. with what may be the original glassine wrapper. Crane A1.a. First edition of Cather's first book, and her only collection of poetry, published at her own expense. Joan Crane, citing American Book Prices Current for 1930, noted a copy of April Twilights with a tipped-in "Literary Note", and concluded, although never seeing it, that it was "an announcement flyer for the book in the form of an advertisement and order form issued by the publisher...." In 1997 we discovered what was then the only known surviving example of this note, and identified it as being of Cather's authorship. The note is discussed in David H. Porter's "On the Divide: The Many Lives of Willa Cather." In this copy the "Literary Note" is tipped to the front endpaper, as might be done for a review copy.
