Printed for Charles Meunier. Set in mint condition. Pierre Félix Louis (1870-1925), also known as Pierre Louÿs, was a French poet and author. His pen names were Pierre Louis, Chrysis, Peter Lewys and Pibrac. He founded a literary review, La Conque in 1891, where works not only by Parnassian and symbolist literary role models were published, such as Mallarmé, Moréas, Leconte de Lisle or Verlaine, but also writings by young and still unknown poets such as Valéry, André Gide and Louÿs himself. His first, small collection of poems, Astarté, appeared in 1891 in l’Art indépendent, followed by "Chrysis ou la cérémonie matinale" in 1893; Poésies de Méléagre, translated in 1893, "Lêda ou la louange des bienheureux ténèbres" in 1893, "La maison sur le Nil ou les Apparences de la Vertu" in 1894, "Scènes de la vie des courtisanes de Lucien de Samosate", translated in 1894, and the same year "Les Chansons de Bilitis" which was his best-known work and a literary hoax. Effectively, Louÿs passed his own poems off as those of a contemporary of the Greek Sappho (died ca. 570 BCE). Size: 4to. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE SAINT AND THE OUTLAW AND OTHER STORIES. By Michael Wood [pseudonym]

      London: Theosophical Publishing Society ... New York: John Lane, 1904.. Octavo, pp. [1-7] 8-236 [237-240: ads] [note: last ad leaf is a cancel headed "ELEMENTARY BOOKS ON THEOSOPHY"] original pictorial green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in white and black, all edges trimmed. First edition, variant binding. "Collection of thirteen supernatural tales with a dreamy, mystical atmosphere that places them near, if not in, the Celtic Twilight: the style is less vaporous than Fiona Macleod's, though not as vigorous as Yeats'. The mysticism also places them in the realm of religious writing. The author clearly has a moral intent, yet the stories usually avoid religiosity and sentimentality. The 'moral' is often hard to pin down in simplistic terms, as one might expect from someone who was a regular contributor to THE THEOSOPHICAL REVIEW. In other words, the approach is more 'spiritual' than 'religious.' It echoes also the medievalism of William Morris' romances -- a resemblance underlined by the uncial typography of the cover. The imagery is vivid and the writing style relatively free of authorial intrusion. The material merits the attention of the student of golden age English supernatural fiction, and it's a little curious that it has received so little as yet, when collections that are much inferior to it are so well-known among specialists. Vincent Starrett devotes a chapter to her in his BURIED CAESARS, recalling how he came across her WILLOW WEAVER by chance, then quickly acquired and read nine of her other books. He praises her for her ability to convey the 'incommunicable.'" - Robert Eldridge. The author's real name was Joy Hooper, as John Eggeling discovered. She was "a devout mystic who dedicated herself to prayer and became an anchorite on the Isle of Wight" (obituary in St. Michael's News, June, 1946). Not in any of the standard genre bibliographies. Owner's signature dated October 1928 on front free endpaper; neatly inked index of story themes on rear free endpaper. A very good copy. COPAC records 3 copies. OCLC records 3 copies. A scarce book.

        REMINISCENCES OF FRONTIER LIFE.

      Privately printed, 1904., Portland - First edition. 8vo. Original grey printed wrappers, 134 [1] pp., introduction, illustrated, plates. The author's reminiscences, written primarily for his friends, tells of his travels and experiences throughout the West and Alaska. He tells of Indian scares, gold mining, outlaws, buffalo hunts, prairie fires, a Nebraska blizzard, the Black Hills, the Rocky Mountains, Custer's massacre, and much more. Six Guns 912 says, "Rare." "Privately printed for friends. The author died while the book was in press. The printer, no doubt believing that he would not recover his printing costs, scrapped almost the entire edition, only a few copies escaping; hence its rarity. It contains material on some outlaws of the frontier and tells about the hangings by the vigilantes and about the last of Laramie road agents." Howes H142 says "Most of the edition "scrapped" to a paper mill." Graff 1760 says "Contains a narrative of a trip across the plains in '65. -EDG." Phillips American Sporting Books p. 155, "Chapter on a buffalo stampede." Over-sized covers lightly chipped at fore-edges, faint vertical crease to the front cover, light wear to the spine ends, else a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        THE EVER NEW HORIZON - Alma-Tadema, 1904.

      THE EVER NEW HORIZONStaalgravure vervaardigd door Charles Oliver Murray in 1904 naar het schilderij (Opus CCCLXXV uit 1903) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema. Met potlood gesigneerd door Alma-Tadema en Murray. Later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 49 x 38 cm.Vanaf 1880 begint Alma-Tadema aan een reeks schilderijen waarop vrouwen zijn afgebeeld die zich hoog op imposante marmeren terrassen bevinden en uitkijken over een heldere Middellandse Zee.Hoewel er weinig archeologische voorwerpen zijn afgebeeld, lijken ze in een specifieke tijd en plaats te zijn gesitueerd: de Romeinse tijd aan de Golf van Napels.Klassieke bronnen beschrijven deze kustlijn als een populaire vakantie bestemming uit het vroeg Romeinse Rijk. De rijken bouwden luxe villa?s langs de baai op de randen van de klippen.De drie vrouwen op The Ever New Horizon lijken echter minder ontspannen dan de dames op het fameuze The Coign of Vantage [vert.: een gunstig uitkijkpunt] uit 1895. De vrouwen lijken door hun geliefden te zijn verlaten en hopen, uitkijkend over zee, op hun terugkomst.Prijs: ? 2.150,- (incl. lijst).

        UGANDA PROTECTORATE

      London Hutchinson and Co 1904 - 2 volumes. Second Edition. With 48 beautiful color plates, 506 illustrations from drawings and photos, and 9 maps. Large 8vo, publisher's original navy-blue cloth gilt lettered on spines, with gilt lettering to the upper cover. xxxvi, 470; xiii, 471-1018. A handsome and honest set, internally bright and fine, the cloth is age mellowed but remains dark and attractive and all the gilt work is well preserved. Rear hinge of one volume with cosmetic separation at the pastedown. SCARCE FIRST EDITION SET, HANDSOME AND WELL PRESERVED. Johnston’s superb description of the physical geography, botany, zoology, anthropology, language and history of the Uganda territory. Handsomely presented, the books are replete with photographs and illustrations of Uganda at the turn of the century. Copies in cloth are now quite scarce. Johnston was early on an explorer and traveller to Africa and these volumes are typical of the very best produced writing in travel and exploration of the period. Johnston began his travels in Africa at the age of 21 with his 1879-1880 journey to the interior of Tunisa as a student of painting, architecture, and languages. This trip sparked the passion for travel and exploration in the wilds of the African continent that he would spend the next several decades fulfilling. His journeys and his leadership potential were first brought to the attention of the Royal Geographical Society and the British Association in 1883 when he met H.M. Stanley and traveled with him to the remote river above the Stanley Pool in the Congo, a virgin territory little known to other Europeans at that time. From there his travels and responsibilities expanded rapidly; he was commissioned to lead a scientific expedition to to Mount Kilmanjaro beginning in Zanzibar in 1884, the success of which led to his apopintment as British vice-consul and eventually acting consul in Cameroon and the Niger Delta. He held a number of government positions through the next 20 years, perhaps best known for his "Cape-to-Cairo" scheme, a phrase coined in the London Times in August of 1888. The plan entailed having British influence in an unbroken line from Alexandria to Cape Town, but was foiled in July of 1890 when the British were forced to give up their sphere of influence north of Lake Tanganyika to the Germans. His later days were spent organizing British administration in Uganda and Liberia as well as writing about his life experiences in Africa. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Guerilla or Partisan Warfare.

      London: Hugh Rees, Ltd.,, 1904. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine and upper board in black. Ownership signature to front pastedown. Spine rolled and faded, boards a bit rubbed and marked, contents toned, spotting to edges and occasionally to contents. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. An extremely interesting figure, Maguire was a barrister who produced a large number of forensically lucid "crammer" studies on a range of military subjects for publishers such as Hugh Rees, Simpkin Marshall and Clowes. "Well read among British students of strategy at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, his name and writings all but disappeared from the active literature after his death in 1920. His matter-of-fact encapsulations regarding the marshalling and application of land power, couched always in History and Geography, remain relevant today" (Geoffrey Demarest, T. Miller Maguire and the Lost Essence of Strategy, USAWC research project, 2008). He embarked on the present work having noted the lack at a key moment; "It appeared to me very strange, before the late war in South Africa, that the operations of guerillas were not part of the curriculum for the education of military officers in England: because, from the very nature of our Empire, British officers are more frequently engaged, in what might be called guerrilla wars - small wars, savage wars, irregular wars - than any other officers." (Introduction). This copy with the ownership inscription of Lieut.-Col. Angus F. Douglas-Hamilton, 6th Camerons, who won a posthumous VC at Loos in September 1915; "when battalions on his left and right had retired, he rallied his own battalion again and again, and led his men forward four times. The last time he led all that remained, consisting of about 50 men, in a most gallant manner, and was killed at their head" (London Gazette 18 November 1915). An uncommon work with an appealing provenance.

Bound in fine blue-gray pigskin with both covers attractively gilt with five bold gilt and large leaf and flower designs at each corner and center, single gilt fillet border, spine divided into six panels with raised bands, lettered in the top panel and dated at the foot, the other panels (five) bearing the same leaf and flower motif as the covers, double-ruled gilt fillet borders on dentelles. Signed by Katharine Adams in gilt on the rear turn-in with her monogram, "K/A" separated by a single gilt diagonal line. Adams set up her own shop in 1901 in London, binding personal books for luminaries such as Sydney Cockerell, and of course, many exquisite bindings from the three top private press firms, Kelmscott, Ashendene and Doves.This binding may have been commissioned by an unknown party, from Adams and bears the bookplate of Alfred Acland (1858-1937) of Feniton Court in Devon. In 1885 Acland married Beatrice Danvers Smith, the daughter of W. H. Smith, and the Feniton Library contained a number of books bound by the W.H. Smith Bindery, which was managed by Douglas Cockerell from 1905 to 1914.

        La Loïe Fuller

      Les Cent Bibliophiles, Paris 1904 - 4to, cream wrappers with embossed design covering both covers in pink, green and gilt. Professionally rebacked in compatible paper. Included is the contemporary marbled board portfolio, into which the book had been bound, presumably for the original owner, Maurice Quarré, a member of the French bibliophile, with his bookplate laid in. With announcement from L'Estampe Originale listing this work as appearing next. Scattered minor foxing; a very pretty copy. Seventeen embossed designs in color, "estampes modelées", by Pierre Roche. These are sculptural relief engravings apparently from plaster models according to Gordon Ray, printed with touches of color in a process called gypsography. Roche, a pupil of Rodin, was a noted sculptor, medallist and ceramist. This is the first use of relief illustrations in a book and the first use of Auriol Italique type, which combine for a beautiful mise-en-page. This exquisite Art Nouveau book captures the celebrated American artiste whirling in here diaphanous veils, lit by colored spotlights. Loïe opened her own special theater at the 1900 Paris World's Fair and called her performance "la danse serpentine." A vibrant homage to the dancer who fascinated the world and a bibliographic and technical tour de force. Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated book, p. 480. Illustrations can be found on my website by clicking on Catalogue 31 (item 51). Size: 4to [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Wren's Nest was Harris' beloved and well known home. Attached to the same page is a three page handwritten note signed by Julia C.

The boards are orange with gilt illustration and script.

The first several pages show what appears to be a faint damp mark to the front edge.

Die Paginierung beginnt im Jg. 43 ab Nr.51. - Tlw. alte Restaurierung der Einrisse durch Textilklebeband, Läsuren bzw. Einrisse, Nr. 87 (43.Jg.) mit Abriss und kl. Buchstabenverlust, stärkere Gbrsp., R. angeplatzt, berieben, Buchblock aufgrund des Papiergewichtes für den Einband zu schwer, daher dieser fragil, neue Bindung anratsam. - Die Zeitschrift "Kikeriki" wurde 1861 gegründet und bis in die achtziger Jahre des 19. Jahrhunderts hatte es eine liberale Ausrichtung. Unter dem zunehmenden Einfluß der Christlichsozialen um Karl Lueger wurde der Kikeriki scharf antisemitisch: ". bewegte sich recht konstant auf einer antisemitische Linie, die viele antijudaistische Vorurteile weiterführt, der er [der Kikeriki] zunächst einen österreich-souveränen Astrich geben möchte, indem er die paramilitärische Heimwehr favorisiert. . Insbesondere beim Kikeriki erzeugt die antijüdische Karikatur ein kämpferisches Klima, in dem es legitim erscheint, sich gegen die Christenverfolgung durch die als jüdisch Markierten zu wehren. " (Zitat Schäfer, Vermessen - Gezeichnet - Verlacht. (2004) S. 55 und S. 90).[Die von uns gezeigte Abbildung zeigt eine Hetzkarikatur von Gustav Mahler]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
