        Jane Oglander

      Charles Scribner's Sons New York 1911 - First Edition. An early and uncommon Lowndes title, not found in Hubin. Dustjacket copy describes the book as "a powerful and impressive story laid in England, but the central character is a fascinating Greek, beautiful and ambitious." An early New York Time's review of the book describes it thus: "The character of Athena is a masterpiece in its way. Mrs. Belloc-Lowndes has drawn a woman without conscience, without sympathies, absolutely self-centered, but possessing both passions and charm. The wife of an old man who thoroughly understands her, and whom she does not love, lets nothing stand in the way of gratifying her passing fancies for other men". Near Fine in the scarce printed dustjacket, Very Good but modestly edge chipped. 0.0 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        RURAL DENMARK AND ITS LESSONS. With AUTOGRAPHED SIGNED LETTER TO LORD ROSBERY.

      London, Longmans, Green and Co., 1911. FIRST EDITION 1911, WITH A FOUR PAGE AUTOGRAPHED LETTER TO LORD ROSEBERY AND AUTHOR'S COMPLIMENT SLIP. 8vo, approximately 225 x 140 mm, 9 x 5½ inches, 28 photographic illustrations mostly 2 images on 1 plate, pages: x, [1], 1-335 including index, original publisher's blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Slight rubbing to cloth, corners slightly bumped, endpapers age-browned, engraved book-plate to first pastedown, probably that of Lord Rosebery. A very good copy. The letter dated 7 April 1911 and written on Ditchingham House headed notepaper: "Dear Lord Rosebery, Some years ago I remember you telling me that you had read my book "Rural England" I now send you another "Rural Denmark and its Lessons" which I venture to hope that you may find time to look through. I do not know that you will share the conclusions to which I have come, or at any rate all of them, but I hope & believe that you will agree with me that the extension of ownership (not one certainly among small holders) & the establishment of cooperation are desirable & indeed necessary to our national welfare. Believe me truly yours, H. Rider Haggard. P.S. My Salvation Army Settlement scheme was duly knocked on the head by a Departmental Committee appointed to that end. It seems a pity since had it been carried out the trebling of the value of the enormous tracts of territory which the Canadian Gov.t was then willing to give for its execution (which has since happened) would have made of it (I believe) a great financial, as well a(sic) social success. But the scheme trod on too many toes & offended too many vested interests, So having done the work I was sent to do I was duly executed by the usual Departmental Committee hatchet! That does not matter but unfortunately the lost opportunity will never return." MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Works

      1911. BAIN, Francis William. Works. London: Methuen, (1911-13). Nine volumes. Slim 12mo, contemporary three-quarter red close-grain morocco, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $1750.Mixed later editions comprising this nine-volume set of Hindu love stories, purported by F.W. Bain to be his translations of ancient Sanscrit manuscripts. Handsomely bound by Bickers & Son.British author of fantasy stories Francis William Bain claimed that the tales he published were translated from ancient Hindu Sanskrit. Bain was for a number of years a fellow of All Souls College at Oxford, and then professor of History at the Deccan College in Poona, British India— presumably being well schooled in both the Eastern and Western traditions. Bain offered the first of these tales, A Digit of the Moon (first published in 1898), as his translation of the eighth part of a 16-part Sanskrit manuscript presented to him by an unidentified brahmin. Argument over the authenticity of BainÂ’s “translations” raged throughout his life. Each of the stories contains erudite footnotes explaining Sanskrit puns and wordplay that Bain himself confessed he did not fully understand. A contemporary reviewer saw it this way: “Though palpably a pretence, they are graceful fancies, and might as well have appeared for what they really are instead of masquerading as ‘translations.Â’ No Hindu, unless of this generation and under foreign influence, ever conceived these storiesÂ… Moreover, they are of a strict propriety, whereas original Hindu love stories would put RabelaisÂ’s ghost to the blush” (The Nation, 1905). A Digit of the Moon was followed by a number of other stories in the same mode: including In the Great GodÂ’s Hair, Bubbles of the Foam, An Essence of the Dusk, Ashes of a God, Mine of Faults, and A Heifer of the Dawn. A fine set, with only light flecks of foxing to fore-edges, elegantly bound.

E' ora di mettersi all'opera. Per Giugno io direi che potessimo metter fuori il primo volume dei Poemi del Risorgimento. [...] Si vogliono tavole a colori, da riprodursi nel miglior modo. La prima dovrebbe essere Napoleone a Sant'Elena. [...] La seconda [...] può essere o una notturna cavalcata di un reggimento di cavalleria che va al galoppo verso Novara. C'è tra loro, ammantellato, spaventato dal destino che porta con sé, il giovane principe di Carignano, Carlo Alberto, che ha tradito e abbandonato la causa della libertà e ubbidisce agli ordini del re [...] che vuole che vada a Novara [...] O può essere Garibaldi giovinetto a Roma. Ma per questo bisogna che tu attenda il poema [...]. Quando mi avrai scritto, riscriverò. Silenzio! Tuo Giovanni Pascoli [...]".

        Manuel de Police Scientifique (Technique).

      Lausanne: Librairie Payot & Cie., Paris: Félix Alcan, , 1911. I - Vols et Homicides [all published] Préface de M. Louis Lépine, Préfet de Police de Paris. Octavo. Contemporary oatmeal half cloth on mid-blue boards, blue morocco label to spine, original wraps bound in. Profusely illustrated. Some light spotting, a couple of leaves a touch cockled, one with repair along top edge, but overall very good First and only edition. The first, and the only published, volume of a projected, comprehensive, four-volume manual of scientific police practice by one of its unsung pioneers. The other volumes were to have covered forgery; the identification of repeat offenders; and the organization of a modern criminal police force, but the world-wide demand for his services as a consultant; the intervening international conflict; and his post-war decision to resign his academic post and to settle in Serbia, completed its completion. Reiss (1876-1929), received his doctorate from Lausanne in 1898, and in 1899 he took over the Service de l'Identité Judiciaire founded 3 years previously by Marius Jaccard on principles suggested by the anthropometric work of Alphonse Bertillon for the Préfecture de police in Paris. The publication of the present work establishes his international reputation, and in 1906 he attends the 6th International Congress on Criminal Anthropology, in Turin, where he meets Cesare Lombroso, pioneer anthropometrist; Salvatore Ottolenghi, founder of the Scuola di Polizia Scientifica; and Edmond Locard, originator of the fundamental exchange principle of forensic science, "Every contact leaves a trace." Following a period of study with Bertillon, he returned to Lausanne and in 1909 established the l'Institut de Police Scientifique offering an interdisciplinary diploma in scientific policing. His publication in 1911 of the first volume of his Manuel de Police Scientifique cements his position as a recognized authority in the area. In 1912 he was invited to preside over a series of seminars in St. Petersburg; the following year he was in Sao Paolo, presenting a course for the Brazilian government; and in 1914 he is consulted by the New York police seeking advice on their reorganization on rational lines, his suggestions being published as Contribution à la Réorganisation de la Police. After service on the Serbian front in the First World War, Reiss resigned his post at the IPS and settled near Belgrade, where he died in 1929. An exhibition in Lausanne in 2001 celebrated Reiss as " Un Sherlock Holmes vaudois.

        Blue Book

      1911. First Edition . (NEW ORLEANS). Blue Book. [New Orleans: Thomas C. Anderson, circa 1911]. 12mo, original wire-stitched pale blue wrappers. Housed in a custom chemise and clamshell box. $5500.Early directory of the “fast women” of New Orleans, apparently published by principal advertiser restaurateur Tom Anderson, and compiled by Billy Struve, manager of AndersonÂ’s Annex Café. Contains the warning, “This book must not be mailed,” and the advisory, “Read all the ads.”The Preface of this notorious pocket-sized directory of the legendary Storyville district of New Orleans asks the question, ""Why [should] New Orleans have this directory? Because it is the only district of its kind in the States set aside for the fast women by law."" Established by city statute in 1897, Storyville segregated prostitution to a specific area, in order to curtail such activity in outlying neighborhoods. First appearing around 1900, this ""Blue Book"" of Storyville purveyors is broken out by race, with alphabetic entries of the names and addresses of ""the best places to spend your money."" Interleaved are full-page advertisements for whiskey (""recommended as a stimulant""), cigars (""cardinal size, 5 cents straight""), jewelry (""expert examination""), candy (""made last night""), drug stores (""free delivery""), mistresses (""Miss Edna Hamilton has, without doubt, one of the finest equipped 'Chateaus' in the Tenderloin District""), and legal services (""Practices in all courts, P.L. Fourchy, Counsellor-at-Law""). Storyville is commonly regarded as the birthplace of Dixieland jazz (""all the latest musical selections nightly, rendered by a typical southern darky orchestra""), and had remained a staple attraction for visiting carousers until the U.S. Navy closed it down in 1917. Text printed in red and black. Near-fine condition.
