        THE WORKS OF THOMAS JEFFERSON

      New York & London: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1904. Limited Edition. Hardcover. All volumes uniformly rebacked in high quality morocco in period style. Some wear and scuffing at board edges and corners. Near Fine, contents bright and fresh. The Connoisseur's Federal Edition limited to 400 numbered sets with the printed signature of the publisher, this being copy 160. Complete in 12 large paper octavo (6-1/4" x 9-5/8") volumes bound in 3/4 black morocco leather, spines with five raised bands ruled and ornamented in gilt with contrasting leather spine labels, pale marbled paper boards and matching marbled endpapers, top edge gilt with others uncut, boards ruled in gilt. Collected and Edited by Paul Leicester Ford with the text printed on heavy rag laid finished paper. Illustrated with fine full-page portraits, facsimiles, and maps. Ford's edition of THE WRITINGS OF THOMAS JEFFERSON is still regarded as one of the monuments of American historical scholarship, setting the standard for documentary editing for half a century. The G. P. Putnam Knickerbocker Press bindery in New York bound only a small portion of this Jefferson edition of 1000 sets in the publisher's leather. The edition itself was divided into two issues: the "Collector's Federal Edition" limited to 600 sets and the "Connoisseur's Federal Edition" limited to 400 sets. Probably no more than 200 to 300 sets of either issue were ordered by the subscribers to be bound in leather. Today, sets bound in standard blue cloth are far more common than this leather issue. This famous and elegant Paul Leicester Ford compilation of Jefferson's WORKS was first issued by Putnam in a smaller set in 1892. Putnam issued this Federal Edition in 1904 as a commemorative edition for the editor who, at the age of 37, was murdered in his Manhattan home by his brother, Malcolm Webster Ford, at one time the most famous amateur athlete in the United States, who then committed suicide.

        The Songs of Bilitis [Signed by Pierre Louys and Signed by George Seferis]

      London and New York: The Aldus Society, 1904. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Fagan, James. A Very Good copy of the first UK edition, first printing, and the first edition of the book in English translation (some handling soil, tiny rub at the spine foot, some pushing to the spine ends and bumping to the board corners), SIGNED BY PIERRE LOUYS on the half-title and SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS on the front free endpaper with two drawings and a PRESENTATION TO REX WARNER (a noted British author, Seferis' close friend, and a highly-regarded translator of Seferis' poetry to English) placed by Seferis in Storrs, Connecticut and with five lines written by Seferis in Greek. The book was privately issued by The Aldus Society in a Limited Edition of 1,000 copies (consisting of nine hundred and seventy-one copies on a special paper, with the watermark of the Society, and twenty-six signed and lettered copies, and three author's copies on Imperial Japanese vellum with the initials hand-illumined, of which this is Number 17 (of the 971). No Signature was called for in this copy, yet it has been signed by Louys on the half-title. There being only twenty-six copies expressly called to be signed, excluding this copy, we believe it to be quite scarce. The page edges are watermarked, and the title/limitation page, the frontispiece, and the book's other three full-page illustrations are printed on vellum leaves. While Pierre Louys was a heterosexual, he also was a good friend of Oscar Wilde and Andre Gide and a noted champion of gay & lesbian rights. His poetry and other writings are permeated with erotic and lesbian themes, with "The Songs of Bilitis" being his most famous and most frequently republished work. "Bilitis", the name Louys gave to his fictional Poetess, is presented by Louys as a contemporary of Sappho (herself a Greek lyric poet born between 630 and 612 BC on the Greek island of Lesbos). The book's introduction alleges the 143 poems within to have been written by Bilitis, whose tomb Louys claimed to have been discovered by (his fictional) archaeologist Herr G. Heim. The work shows Pierre Louys' deep knowledge of Ancient Greek culture, and, while written primarily by him, some of the poems are reworked epigrams from the Palatine Anthology (discovered in 1606), and some of the verses were taken from Sappho's work. Upon the work's initial publication (France, 1894), expert scholars were fooled and considered the work to be genuine and the poems to have been authored by Bilitis. Even after Louys' deception was unmasked, enthusiasm for the book's poetry did not wane and the poems, which established Pierre Louys' historic significance as a Poet, continue to be considered an important literary work. The poems comprise three cycles, each of which represents a phase of Bilitis' life: Bucolics in Pamphylia, representing her childhood and first sexual encounters, Elegies at Mytilene covers indulgence in homosexual sensuality, and the final section, Epigrams in the Isle of Cyprus, covers her life there as a courtesan. As noted above, George Seferis, a Greek Diplomat and Ambassador to the UK, one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, and the first Greek ever to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature gave this copy to Rex Warner. Both authors were deeply interested in all things related to Cyprus, thus explaining the gift. Signed copies of Pierre Louys' works, issued in French, while not rare, are relatively uncommon. However, signed copies of his works in English translation are real hen's teeth and exceedingly difficult to find. This copy, also having been signed and inscribed by Greece's first Nobel Laureate in Literature, is an extraordinary find. SCARCE to RARE.

        KAKIMAMI GUSA Vol.3

      1904. [DESIGN] Ogino ISSUI, designer. KAKIMAMI GUSA vol. 3. Kyoto, Unkindo, Meiji 37 [1904] Ribbon-bound oblong Japanese style, 25.4 x 36 cm. Ge volume (volume three of three, only). 25 large full page color woodblock designs by Ogino Issui, one of the most elusive, yet most skillful designers of the early 20th century. This would appear to be the original Unkindo edition, later sold (though maybe not reprinted) by Unsodo when Unkindo was folded into Unsodo. It appears in the Taisho era Unsodo catalogue, but not the later Showa era one. The book is largely unheard of in the marketplace. Little is known of Issui and his oeuvre is quite limited, his most famous work being the ZUAN HYAKUDAI in three volumes. This work is perhaps his scarcest and very lovely. In nice condition, impression and color through out with a bit of browning.

      Masson & Cie 1904 3 vol. dont 1 vol. in-4 et deux vol. petit in-4 reliés demi-chagrin rouge, dos à 5 nerfs dorés, contenant les épreuves corrigées ou avant impression des sections suivantes figurant dans le "Traité de Chimie Minérale" publié chez Masson & Cie de 1904 à 1906 : Vol. I : Soufre - Mercure ; Vol. II : Fer - Manganèse - Molybdène - Tungstène - Chrome - Plomb - Outremers - Céramique ; Vol. III : Bismuth - Vanadium - Noibium - Cantale - Bore - Uranium - Thallium - Or - Métaux du Platine Exceptionnel ensemble d'épreuves en partie corrigées par Henri Moissan, premier français Prix Nobel de Chimie, en 1906 (5 ans avant Marie Curie). Directeur de la publication du "Traité de Chimie Minérale", publié chez Masson vers 1906, Henri Moissan accorde le "bon à mettre en pages" enrichi de ses dernières corrections manuscrites sur diverses épreuves des textes rédigées par les nombreux collaborateurs à ce monumental traité. Le premier volume recueille les extraits du traité relatif au Soufre (extraits publiés, sans correction manuscrite) et les épreuves (imprimés uniquement au recto) du très long développement consacré au Mercure, corrigées par l'auteur et abondamment annotées par Henri Moissan. A propos des propriétés chimiques du mercure, il insère par exemplaire ce commentaire manuscrit "Le fluor l'attaque à la température ordinaire. Lorsque ce gaz se dégage bulle à bulle à travers une masse de mercure de faible épaisseur, on voit nettement se former à la surface du métal une couche jaune de flurorure de mercure anhydre". Le second volume recueille les épreuves avant ou après mise en page relatives aux éléments suivants : Fer - Manganèse - Molybdène - Tungstène - Chrome - Plomb - Outremers - Céramique, avec quelques corrections des auteurs et de rares annotations d'Henri Moissan, notamment à propos des propriétés chimiques du molybdène. Le troisième volume recueille les épreuves avant ou après mise en page relatives aux éléments suivants : Bismuth - Vanadium - Noibium - Cantale - Bore - Uranium - Thallium - Or - Métaux du Platine. Ensemble unique, en bel état, d'une partie des épreuves du Traité de Chimie Minérale, annoté notamment par Henri Moissan (1852 - 1907), lauréat du Prix Nobel de Chimie 1906 pour ses travaux sur le fluor et pour le développement du four à arc électrique inventé par William Siemens. Le Traité de Chimie Minérale fut la dernière contribution d'importance d'Henri Moissan, qui devait décéder brutalement le 20 février 1907, à 54 ans, peu de temps après son retour de Stockholm où il venait de recevoir son Prix Nobel.

"Echo des Oeuvres et des Missions de la Société de Marie" puis "Organes des Missions et des Oeuvres", elle propose un panorama tout à fait remarquable et passionnant des développements de ces missions dans le monde entier : par exemple au Mexique (Durango...), en Europe (Autriche, Espagne, Belgique, Italie, Suisse...), avec une prédilection pour l'Amérique et l'Asie. On remarque ainsi les nombreux articles consacrés aux missions d'Asie, celles de Chine et surtout aux missions du Japon (Urakami, Tokyo, ...) ainsi qu'aux missions développées aux Etats-Unis (Dayton, Cleveland, Colombus, Erie, Chicago, Honolulu aux Iles Sandwich futur Hawaï, etc.). Les comptes-rendus de mission, ou les visites pastorales des supérieurs en Asie ou en Amérique sont souvent illustrés et font l'objet d'articles du plus grand intérêt.

        Autograph Quotation Signed

      [NP]. December 1904. Card size: 4-3/8 x 4-5/8". The quote reads "Julia Ward Howe / Pres' New England Women's / Club / Ex-pres' of the Association for / the Advancement of Women. / Mine eyes have seen the glory" and is all in Howe's hand. On the verso is the autograph of "Charles W. Eliot / Harvard University / 1904". Julia Ward Howe has summed up her life's work citing contributions to women's rights first. Housed in custom-made blue linen clamshell box, lined with blue velvet, indent for quotation housed in plastic sleeve that can be flipped to view either side without removing, although plastic is open at top edge for removal as well, red morocco label on spine stamped in gold gilt, fine. Julia Ward Howe (1819-1910) spent much of her life working for the betterment of other women. Born into a well-off New York family, she started writing at an early age. Although much of her early poetry is now forgotten, and was not particularly well-regarded when published, she was catapulted to instant fame in February 1862 when the Atlantic Monthly published the "Battle Hymn of the Republic." Mrs. Howe's activities increased after 1868 in the burgeoning postwar woman's movement. She served as President of the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association, the New England Woman Suffrage Association and was a leader in the national organization was a suffrage leader and one of the founders of the New England Women's Club and the New England Woman Suffrage Association. She founded the weekly Woman's Journal in 1870 and in 1883 published a biography of Margaret Fuller. A noted lecturer and lay preacher, as well as writer and active in international peace movements, women's education as well as suffrage. She was the first woman elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters (1908), a precedent not repeated until 1930. In this autograph note written at age 85, just six years before her death, Mrs. Howe seems to be summing up her life. What is particularly fascinating is the order - one assumes listed in importance - of her not inconsiderable achievements. She first lists "President New England Women's Club (which she founded in 1868, assumed presidency in 1871, and held this office almost continuously until her death). The second achievement she lists is "Ex-pres of the Association for the Advancement of Women" (which she helped found in 1873 with the pioneer New York woman's club, Sorosis). Although the AAW was moribund by 1900, supplanted by the General Federation of Women's Clubs (which Mrs. Howe also helped found), while it existed it did much to help women seeking an education or entry to professions. The last achievement Mrs. Howe lists is "Mine eyes have seen the glory-" which is, of course, the opening line of Battle Hymn of the Republic. It is interesting that this is in "third place" in her catalogue of accomplishments. Charles W. Eliot (1834-1926) was the President of Harvard and the most influential leader in the educational activities of the country during his tenure there (1869-1909). He had taken a hopeful view in his inaugural address on the position of higher education for women, and it was under his administration that Radcliffe College came into existence in 1894. We can find no mention of a meeting between Howe and Eliot in 1904 (although they did sit next to one another on February 14, 1907 at a luncheon where Mrs. Howe notes in her diary she sat between Col. Higginson and Mr. Eliot "...with whom I had not spoken in many years." However, her biographers note that Howe almost never refused a request for a verse or sentiment and in 1904, Charles Eliot was fund-raising for teacher's salaries at Harvard. In any event, this is a wonderful piece, confirming that Julia Ward Howe, author of one of America's most famous poems, felt her real contributions were to women's rights. Richards and Elliott, Julia Ward Howe, V. II, pp. 355-356. DAB, pp. 71-78. NAW pp.225-229.

        Judith of Bethulia

      Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company. 1904. First. First edition. A trifle edgeworn, still easily fine in a very good example of the very uncommon printed dustwrapper with small splits, nicks, and tears. An epic dramatic poem that was the basis for two films, most importantly D.W. Griffith's 1914 version, which was his first feature length film, the first of his "epics," and the film that laid the groundwork for his future spectaculars. The budget shocked the Biograph film company, and Griffith was soon let go, to the eventual benefit of all of filmdom. Exceptionally uncommon in jacket. .
