        THE COMPLETE WRITINGS

      Riverside Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts 1904 - 16 Mostly Unopened, Handsomely Gilt VolumesWith Morocco Doublures and Much Shelf Appeal. 222 x 146 mm (8 3/4 x 5 3/4"). 16 volumes. Last three volumes (containing "Letters") edited by Charles Eliot Norton. "Edition de Luxe." ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. VERY HANDSOME DARK GREEN MOROCCO, EXTRAVAGANTLY GILT, covers with a wavy gilt border and charming floral ornaments at corners, central panel (with square-notched corners) formed by six parallel gilt lines; raised bands, spine compartments attractively gilt with scrolling flowers and foliage enclosing a floral fleuron centerpiece, wide turn-ins with elaborate gilt decoration featuring many large and small roses and leaves on stylized lattice work, the turn-ins enclosing SCARLET-COLORED POLISHED MOROCCO DOUBLURES, crimson watered silk free endleaves, top edge gilt, other edges rough trimmed, MOSTLY UNOPENED (six of the volumes entirely unopened, and all but one of the others largely so). With 80 mounted photogravure illustrations on India paper (including frontispieces, one double plate, and one plate with four portraits). Original tissue guards. Front joint of first volume a bit worn (rear joint a little flaked), a half dozen other joints with a hint of rubbing, spines evenly sunned to an attractive olive brown, one small cover scuff, two leaves roughly opened (with no serious consequences), other isolated trivial imperfections, but a nearly fine set in quite an attractive binding, the leather lustrous, and the (mostly unopened) text essentially undisturbed. These bindings look extremely good on the shelf, and the doublures of scarlet--especially as they face crimson-colored watered silk--are a bold highlight of the flamboyant decoration. Though not to be found atop the Mt. Olympus of American literature, James Russell Lowell (1819-91) made significant contributions over a long period of time as a journalist, editor, critic, poet, philosopher, and essayist. He was the first editor of the "Atlantic Monthly" and later co-editor of the "North American Review"; he was the second president of the Modern Languages Association; and he achieved literary prominence not only in America, but abroad, where he enjoyed a triumphal European tour from 1872-74. He was at his best when dispensing folk wit and wisdom, something that obviously informs his first significant work, "The Biglow Papers," which Day describes as "a masterpiece in the genre of folksy philosophizing in American dialect." Among other important contributions is his long poem "A Fable for Critics," which includes--in not always laudatory terms--his personal characterizations of major contemporaneous American writers and his reviews of their work.

        SALMON FISHING ON THE GRAND CASCAPEDIA

      DeVinne Press 1904 - #85 of only 100 copies printed in 1904 in the first issue for distribution to family and friends. 6 5/8” x 9 7/8”, 143 pp. with 19 illustrations (three plates are the fine halftone color images of the fishing flies); 16 photogravures of fishermen, fisher ladies, and fish, campsites, etc. Printed on watermarked Fabriano paper. Vellum spine and corners with printed title label at top of spine and blue/gray paper-covered boards. Spine vellum shows a little light wear, age-related tanning to gray paper on covers. With bookplate of William L. Maclean III, a noted newspaper man and outdoor enthusiast. Overall, a very nice copy of a rare book in its first issue (the second issue of May, 1904, also of 100 copies printed by De Vinne had additional material, a different paper and 152 pages). The author Edmund Walstein Davis was Heir to the Davis Vegetable Painkiller fortune, and one of the founding members of the Cascapedia Club. He describes some interesting early fishing on the river, which is widely considered home to the largest Atlantic salmon in North America (Forty and Fifty pound fish!). Published in 1904 for family and friends in an edition of only 100 copies, this book contains some reasoned thoughts on salmon behavior and fly patterns, and both color and sepia plates illustrate period patterns and life on and along the river at that time. Included are views of the guides, canoes, Club buildings, and, of course, trophy specimens are never too far from the camera. But alas, in 1908, the author was killed by a gunshot wound at his camp while hunting in the area. Considerable mystery has surrounded the circumstance of his death for the past one hundred years and much has been published recently about this. However, one is clearly reminded of that irrefutable refrain: Dead men tell no tales. Just as it should be. This is a great book and a real find for the angling book collector. Note: I have included two of the period photos from the book as examples of the contents. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Seltenes Exemplar der einfacheren Ausgabe (neben der handkolorierten Vorzugsausgabe) der ersten 4 Tsd. des avantgardistischen, aparten Kinderbuchs. Da der Verlag trotz grosser Ankündigung (und aus heutiger Sicht unverständlich) anfänglich bloss wenige Exemplare absetzte, half er sich durch den Austausch der Seiten 45/46 mit einer neuen Geschichte bei den noch ungebundenen Exemplaren der Startauflage von 10'000 Stück. Eine Neuauflage erfolgte 1905 od. 1906 (Bibliographien uneins) und ein Faksimile nach der Ausgabe 1904 im Insel Verlag in den 90er Jahren. Gemäss Verlag wurden die Illustrationen "mit zehn Farben und Gold gedruckt, anstatt des bisher üblichen Dreifarbendrucks". Mit vereinzelten Liedern (mit Noten) sowie Texten u.

First Edition, First Impression, Presumed second issue. Apparently one of just 100 copies printed. The first state of this scarce book was produced in only 10 copies with identical contents but with a red binding. This manifestation is dubbed the second edition by some, but on spurious grounds. Whatever its bibliographical status this is a distinctly uncommon and quite early piece of Crowleyiana.

        SAND-BURIED RUINS OF KHOTAN. Personal Narrative of a Journey of Archaeological & Geographical Exploration in Chinese Turkestan

With a large folding map and 135 illustrations. 8vo, original sienna polished cloth gilt lettered and pictorially decorated in black and yellow on the spine and decorated and lettered in black and yellow on the upper cover. xv, 503. A fresh and desirable copy of this scarce and important work, pages 13-28 with either a chip or neat repair along the bottom margin not effecting the text in any way, head and tail of spine slightly rubbed and with a small chip. VERY SCARCE AND IMPORTANT WORK BY STEIN. In 1900-1901 Stein excavated several ruined sites in the Taklamakan Desert around Khotan, publishing his experiences in SAND-BURIED RUINS OF KHOTAN. This would be the first of two expeditions which would lead to his being awarded the Founder's Gold Medal by the Royal Geographic Society. The rare account of Stein’s first great Central Asian expedition. Stein followed in the footsteps of Sven Hedin, who in 1893 had found unexplored ruins at the oasis of Khotan, along the southern edge of the great Taklamakan desert in Chinese Turkestan. Hedin was unable to undertake any systematic examination of the site,but Stein convinced the Indian Government under Lord Curzon to supply and fund his archaeological and geographical expedition in 1900-01. Stein’s excavations became the first scientific survey of the spread of Buddhism out of India and into greater Asia. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mikael

      Gyldendalske Boghandel, Copenhagen 1904 - 8vo, pp. 379. Contemporary threequarter marbled cloth boards, leather ribbed spine and corners, spine and device on front panel tooled in gilt. Original wrappers, unevenly browned, bound in. List of Bang's previous works to rear wrapper. Small owner's label to front pastedown. A beautifully preserved copy in a contemporary binding. First edition of Denmark's first gay novel, INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR ON HALF-TITLE IN YEAR OF PUBLICATION (in Danish): 'With thanks from your faithful Herman Bang. 6.4.1904. To Albert Jacobsen.' Text in Danish. The journalist, stage director and novelist Herman Bang (1857-1912) was and remains one of the major figures in Danish letters, and in his lifetime was known throughout Europe. Like his Norweigian counterpart, Henrik Ibsen, Bang saw art as a vehicle for social change. He was homosexual, and through his female characters played out many of his own sexual sufferings, a censor-defying trick which was also used by Tennessee Williams forty years later. Like Oscar Wilde in England, Bang was known to be gay; like Wilde he was villified for it. Though never prosecuted he was the subject of constant police attention, and was vilified by the gutter press. In 1906, a scandal erupted involving Bang and a rent boy. One paper was moved to write: 'An unclean puff like Herman Bang must be beaten down, because he is he worst of them all. Everything which is typical of these depravities and crimes we now watch rising from the depths of the swamp like poisonous gas bursting up into the air and the daylight, can be found in Herman Bang. His hoarse voice, his sunken eyes, the slump and mummy-like exhaustion of his body, speak of the progress of vice in his soul and his blood.' Mikael tells the story of an ageing artist and his obsession with his muse, the much younger Mikael. When Mikael falls in love with a countess who one day comes to sit for the Master, the rift between the two men causes the artist to sicken and die. The story can be read as an examination of the tensions between ordinary life and high artistic ideals, but Bang's known personal history made the subtext of the book glaringly obvious. One contemporary reviewer described the character of the Master as 'an undisguised homosexualist.' A critic later described Mikael as 'by far the most pronounced portrayal of another kind of love in Danish literature'. In 1924 the great Danish film director Carl Dreyer (Vampyr, The Passion of Joan of Arc) adapted Mikael for the screen, with Walter Slezak in the title role. Dreyer's adaptation follows the book closely, quietly retaining its homoerotic atmosphere. A lovely copy of a book whose survival rate has badly affected by the scandal it caused when published.

Condition : Edition originale française, traduction, notes et longue préface (de plus de cent pages) de Marcel Proust Un des exemplaires du tirage courant numérotés, n° 903 (après 7 ex. sur Hollande). Envoi autographe signé de Marcel Proust à Édouard Rod, écrivain et journaliste suisse (1857-1910) : " A Monsieur Edouard Rod. Hommage de respectueuse et profonde admiration. Marcel Proust ". Comme, en 1896, Edouard Rod avait publié une bonne critique des Plaisirs et les Jours dans Le Gaulois (cf. Correspondance, II, n° 36), Proust espéra une critique de sa traduction de La Bible d’Amiens. Le critique dut dire à Proust tout le bien qu’il en pensait, puisque, dans une lettre datée de mai 1904, Proust lui répond : «Si je n’étais dans un état de santé chaque jour empiré j’aurais été (.) vous remercier aussi d’avoir pris la peine de m’écrire à propos de mon étude sur Ruskin et de ma traduction de La Bible d’Amiens. Si jamais au cours d’un article vous aviez l’occasion de le signaler j’en serai très fier et très heureux.» Malgré cette supplique, il semble que Rod n’ait pas consacré de chronique dans le Figaro à la traduction de Proust. Très bel exemplaire. Deux petites éraflures sur le premier plat. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A Western Trip

      Herold Press, Detroit 1904 - A WESTERN TRIP TO YELLOWSTONE & MONTANA FEATURING PHOTOCHROMS BY WILLIAM HENRY JACKSON 8vo. 91 [1 blank], [2] pp., 30 mounted photographs (12 full-page photochrome process prints by William Henry Jackson, 18 smaller black and white taken by the party). Original full brown leather gilt-lettered and with gilt illustration of cowboy on rearing horse roping. With author's signed presentation in ink on front flyleaf: "C. L. Levants from Carl E. Schmidt, Jan'y 1905" (ink inscription offset onto the title). An impressive privately produced journal and memoir of a trip to Yellowstone in 1901 written by the wealthy Detroit industrialist Carl Schmidt. This book is an idiosyncratic example of bookmaking, not only because of its unusual illustrative matter, but also because of the author's selection of old English type and the binding created in the author's own tannery. The black and white photographs are candids taken by the party. The color photographs are the work of William Henry Jackson (1843-1942) who served as official photographer of the Hayden survey from 1870-1878 and took the first photos of Yellowstone Park. Leaving Chicago on August 31, 1901, in the company of three other people (his daughter Emma, friend Frank Pingree, and the latter's son Everett), Carl E. Schmidt embarked on a trip inspired by a painting of Yellowstone geysers he saw while waiting in a dining room for his omelet to be served. After describing his train trip West, which included a few humorous detours, Schmidt and his party spent several weeks in Yellowstone enjoying the sites and having various adventures and misadventures, most of which Schmidt describes in a jocular, even-handed manner. Some of the incidents seem to be reflective of the author's own amused awareness of his greenhorn-tourist status. At one point, a trip from the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel is preceded by Schmidt's elaborate order to the kitchen for lunch, which included an extra two-dollar bill to ensure service. However, when the lunch was opened the next day, it turned out to be nothing but ruined scraps. He also describes a somewhat successful fishing trip in which several trout were caught. However, upon arriving at the hotel and handing over the fish to the cook with instructions for preparation, the fish were ruined because they were fried in "wagon- grease butter." The journal concludes with a visit and descent into a mine near Butte, Montana. Schmidt remarks: "Here comes our party and with them the mine boss, Capt. Sammie. He looks like a highwayman, but we find out later he is a Baptist deacon and plays the organ up at the big camp tent" (p. 85). The trip to the mine also includes a recounting of a shoot-out that occurred a few months before their arrival. On the return trip to Chicago, the party stopped briefly in Salt Lake City. In Exploration and Empire Goetzmann describes the photographer William Henry Jackson's importance, "the greatest of all Western photographers [with the] ability to capture the many scenes of sublime beauty in the West on his photographic plates and stereopticon slides, did more than anyone else to publicize the tourist's West. Jackson, like the avant-garde writers, the scientists, and even the local colorists of his time, was helping to usher in a new era of realism that would in part replace, and at the same time, as far as subject matter was concerned, parallel the romanticism of an earlier day".
