      New York and London: D. Appleton and Company,. 1913. original decorated salmon cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold and blind.. A fine copy in very good pictorial dust jacket (which reproduces the. frontispiece on front panel) with shallow chip from upper spine end,. 30 x 40 mm chip from lower spine end (probably with loss of. publisher's imprint), light edge wear, rubbing and some closed splits. along folds, and several old internal tape mends at edges. Despite. the faults, an attractive example of a rare jacket. (#147363). First edition. First printing with code "(1)" at base of text on page 362. "A book of [ten] medical stories with emphasis on the psychic and psychopathic. Most ... are told in the form of mysteries ...." - Queen, The Detective Short Story, p. 8. "The series called THE STRANGE CASES OF DR. STANCHION ... shows instances occurring among the clientele of a famous brain specialist, where the materialist might put aside the explanation of the supernatural, only to be confronted by still greater problems. The relation between insanity and ghostliness in recent fiction is significant and forms the crux of many a story since Poe. Mrs. Bacon's 'The Miracle,' for instance, has its setting in an insane asylum, but the uncanny happenings almost convince us of the sanity of the patients and the paranoia of the outsiders. We come to agree with the specialist that every person is more or less a paranoiac, and none more so than he who scoffs at the supernatural." - Scarborough, The Supernatural in Modern English Fiction, p. 254. See also Scarborough, pp. 289 and 299. "A solid collection of supernatural tales, curiously overlooked by critics, scholars and collectors. Bacon was a successful American author in the first quarter of the century, turning out commercial fiction of a fairly high quality. This book, along with MEDUSA'S HEAD, seems to be her main contribution to the fantastic genre. Several of the stories here were mentioned in Dorothy Scarborough's important 1917 study, The Supernatural in Modern English Fiction, but, aside from infrequent appearances in anthologies, they have been ignored since then. In all ten stories of this collection, the supernatural plays a key role, usually to facilitate the escape from some confining and threatening situation. In two of the stories, that situation itself is supernatural, but the key to escaping it is to first stop denying its existence and meet it in on its own grounds. The stories hinge on both uncanny survivals from the past (ghosts, hauntings, ancestral calls) and uncanny anticipations of the future (premonitions, warnings, precognitions). The author brings fresh thinking to all of these motifs, including the most traditional. In her haunted house story ('The Unburied'), the symptoms of the haunting are specific and unusual: all the female inhabitants of a cheerful, ordinary-looking house are seduced by a malign presence into actions of sexual depravity. A curse expressed and embodied in a concealed cache of old love letters turns out to be the cause, which is discovered by a Roman Catholic priest after Dr. Stanchon's persistent failure to consider any 'unscientific' explanation. In some cases Stanchon, a general practitioner, shows refreshingly unorthodox thinking, in others he sticks with conventional wisdom. He and his redoubtable nurse, Miss Jessop, re-appear through these otherwise unrelated stories, usually in minor roles. (It would be inaccurate to put this collection in the category of occult detectives, except perhaps as a revisionist example). In other stories, the author shows considerable inventiveness. The old housekeeper in 'The Miracle' turns out to be a ghost -- and perhaps something more. We eventually learn that she had died (medically pronounced as such) even though her long-time employer had kept up an unbroken conversation with her. It is hinted that, after she 'comes back,' her body becomes a window into other souls than her own, including people who are unknown to her but close to whomever she happens to be with. Bacon is very skillful at gradually and credibly building up the sort of atmosphere that makes the unbelievable seems believable. The notion of shivering in response to an uncanny tale has been so abused and degraded by blurb-writers that it is all but impossible now to speak of it seriously. But the phenomenon itself, which is a great deal rarer than those blurbers would have us believe, is all but impossible to dismiss when it happens to oneself. The physical responses of the body to art constitute a kind of supreme court whose judgments are beyond appeal. Laughter, tears, shivers, increased heart beat, involuntary exclamations (and on the other side of the ledger, yawns and drooping eyelids): let the sophisticated critic or writer dismiss these as vulgar, but let's see him produce them first. It's harder than it looks. A reasonable guess is that fewer than ten percent of ghost stories actually deliver the goods in such an irrefutable manner. The true figure may be closer to one percent. Bacon maneuvered this reader into such a state in four of these stories. Bacon's work also carries a certain thematic weight that's unusual for the genre, exploring ideas of bondage and escape in a frequently unorthodox manner. In several cases, the heroine is trapped in a gilded birdcage. Wealthy heroines, having everything done for them, come to feel useless and lose the zest for life. Escape comes by renouncing unearned wealth and taking up the struggle for one's daily bread. In another case ('The Crystal'), a young woman is trapped in a fast-track career and eventually has a nervous break-down. A moment of accidental crystal-gazing helps her get off the fast track and find the right path, which in her case means becoming the working wife of the captain of a tramp steamer. In the most moving of these stories ('The Key'), a wealthy but helpless middle-aged society woman is finally committed to an asylum for what would now be diagnosed as clinical depression. In a dream she learns how to escape the asylum, and proceeds to do so, with no plan but to follow instincts and opportunities. She disguises herself, adopts a new identity, is robbed of her jewels, and winds up as the housekeeper of a small boarding house in the suburbs, happy for the first time in her life. In 'The Gypsy' the author does not quite bring off a similar transition. But the mere effort to tackle such a riches-to-rags theme is laudable for its freshness." As with almost any popular writer, the social mores underlying Bacon's stories accurately reflect and amplify those of her time, with the result that, a century later, many seem dated. But, all in all, for thematic weight, stylistic polish and fantastic imagination, this deserves to be considered a core collection of American short supernatural fiction." - Robert Eldridge. Bleiler (1948), p. 37. Not in Bleiler (1978). Reginald 00698. Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 B-64.

Preface p. IX f.). -- Die Illustrationen von Kay Nielsen (1886?1957), um 1910 zur Ausbildung in Paris an den Akademien Julian und Colarossi, gleichen im Stil etwas den Arbeiten von Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) und Edmund od. Edmond Dulac (1882-1953), einwenig auch denen seines gleichaltrigen Zeitgenossen Josef von Divéky (1887-1951), in Strich, Schwung und Kompositionen erinnern diese farbenprächtigen Tafeln aber besonders an die Zeichnungen von Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898): ?Influencé à ses débuts par Aubrey Beardsley et les artistes anglais ?modern style?, Nielsen demeure l?auteur de merveilleuses et fantastiques illustrations de livres de contes.? (Bénézit). Dem Titel entsprechend tragen die dargestellten Damen mit wenigen Ausnahmen Reifröcke (od. Varianten davon), wobei die Szenerien mehrheitlich die (spät-) barocke galante, elegante und verspielte, auch tendenziell dekadente Pracht des Rokoko wiedergeben. Kai Nielsens Gestaltung zeigt bereits Ansätze des wenige Jahre später sich entwickelnden Stil des Art Déco, ein Indiz für die aufkommende (klassische) Moderne, die sich schon im späten Jugendstil andeutete. -- NETTOGEWICHT / NET WEIGHT 2.5 kg Sprache: en [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Captain Johnston's Report of the General Scheme for the Improvement of the River Murray; together with Plans and Estimates. [Bound together with] Report on Improvements in the Vicinity of the Mouth of the River Murray, South Australia

      Adelaide, R.E.E. Rogers, Government Printer, 1912 [and] 1913 - Foolscap folio, 66 pages plus a folding chart, 3 large folding plans or charts (describing a typical plan of a lock and weir, and charting the effects of certain reservoirs on navigation) and a large folding map of the Murray (555 x 910 mm, the 'section between Swan Reach and Wentworth . showing locations of lock-sites', with a very large inset map of the entire length of the river), [and] 32 pages plus a folding map ('Proposed improvements in the vicinity of the mouth of the River Murray', 537 x 518 mm). Contemporary full morocco lettered in gilt on the front cover 'Captain Johnston's River Murray Reports'; the original spine is missing and has been replaced with a fairly pedestrian piece of cloth, giving it a quarter cloth look; extremities rubbed, bumped and a little worn; title pages a little marked (with the second one a little foxed along the top margin); neat repairs to a few trifling tears to the folding plans (with a tape-stain to an old repair along one fold of the last map); slight nicks to the bottom edge of some leaves in the first paper; overall in very good condition. The ownership signature of Arthur Searcy (1913) is written in pencil on each title page. Arthur Searcy (1852-1935) was Controller of Harbors from July 1911 and Chairman of the Harbors Board Committee until his retirement at the age of 65 (information from the Searcy scrapbooks in the State Library of South Australia). He was the older brother of the more well-known Alfred (1854-1925). Loosely inserted are retained duplicate typescripts of two letters (in all, four pages foolscap) from Searcy, as Chairman of the Board, to the Minister of Marine, regarding proposed works at Victor Harbor (one page) and Goolwa (three pages). The letters are signed and dated at the head by Searcy (August and September 1922 respectively); the one on Goolwa raises numerous objections to Johnston's scheme. Three related contemporary newspaper cuttings (one printing a lengthy letter from Simpson Newland) are also present. The September 1928 ownership signature of E.H. Bakewell is written in pencil on the recto of the front flyleaf. Bakewell was managing director of the South Australian Reinforced Concrete Company, which makes sense in this context.

The Tale of Lohengrin, Knight of the Swan after the Drama of Richard Wagner by T.W. Rolleston. Presented by Willy Pogany. London: G.G. Harrap, n .d. [1913]. Limited to 525 copies signed by the artist, this being copy no. 90. Quarto. Eight tipped-in color plates, numerous full page color illustrations, calligraphic text, head- tailpieces; an image on every page. Printed on heavy grey stock. Full vellum, pictorially gilt-stamped. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. A fine copy. Housed in a blue cloth slipcase.William Andrew ("Willy") Pogany (born Vilmos Andreas Pogány) (August 1882 ?- 30 July 1955) was a prolific Hungarian illustrator of children's and other books. Pogany's best known works consist of illustrations of classic myths and legends done in the Art Nouveau style. He also worked as an art director on several Hollywood films, including Fashions of 1934 and Dames.The publication of Pogány's Lohengrin was the final act in his trilogy of masterworks focused on Wagner's Germanic tales, and one of the quintet that is considered his finest work. Pogány clearly approached the commission to illustrate Lohengrin as an opportunity to improve and extend techniques that he had developed through his preceding work, particularly The Rubáiyat of Omar Khayyám, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Tannhäuser and Parsifal, the other four books that immortalized his career as an illustrator. That commitment to ongoing innovation resulted in an incredible suite of illustrations, including color lithographs, monotone and marginal illustrations and the delightful tipped-in color plates (produced with a four-color process) included in Lohengrin. Themes of medieval chivalry, erotic love and moral tests are illustrated in a lavish fashion by Pogány with an outstanding use of iconography, form and color.

Rosenthiehl studies Maxwell's Color Disks- the adjustable color disks that form a single color when spun at high speeds. The book was also published at the height of the Cubism movement and it was an inspiration in Julie Beaudeneau's color system, which was, in turn, used by Jacques Villon.

        Collection of Two Original Photograph Views of Whitehorse, Each Titled:] Whitehorse, June 11, 1913.

      1913 - 1913. Two unmounted gelatin silver prints, each ca. 19,5x25 cm (7 ¾ x 9 ¾ in). Titled and signed "E.J. Hamacher" in negative. Minor creases and tears on extremities, with minor losses, but overall very good bright photos. Two attractive panoramic views of the young growing community of Whitehorse taken by the renowned local photographer E.J. Hamacher, who was later credited for accomplishing the most comprehensive visual history of the early years of Whitehorse. The photos taken from the clay cliffs surrounding the town show the main outline of Whitehorse with the Yukon River and the wharf with the sternwheelers in the foreground, followed by the streets, the residential area and the church; distant snow-capped hills of the Coast Mountains are seen in the background. "Ephraim J. Hamacher (or E.J. As he was commonly called) was born June 10, 1857 in Kitchener, Ontario and was living in Yakima, Washington when news of the Klondike Gold Rush broke out. He moved north, and in 1898 set up a photography studio in Bennett City, B.C. In April 1900 Hamacher moved to Whitehorse, Yukon and operated a general merchandise and photographic store selling his own prints as well as photography equipment and supplies. Hamacher became known as "The Whitehorse Photographer". He was involved in many community activities including hunting, fishing, curling and playing piccolo in the town band. E.J. Hamacher died in Whitehorse on November 1, 1935" (E.J. Hamacher Collection/Yukon Archives online). "Hamacher worked in Washington and Oregon possibly as early as the 1870s (Mautz, 1997). By the summer of 1898, according to Becker, he was left in charge of Hegg's "studio" at Lake Bennett while Hegg, P.E. Larss and others carried on to Dawson. Hamacher was assisted by Florence Hartshorn" (Camera Workers: The British Columbia, Alaska & Yukon Photographic Directory online, vol. 1).
