         Blätter für die Kunst. Herausgegeben von Carl August Klein. Erste bis zwölfte [d. i. letzte] Folge (jedoch ohne Folge 8) in 9 Bänden.

      F. Cynamon bzw. Otto von Holten ohne Jahr [1892]-1919, Berlin - Zusammen ca. 1780 Seiten. Einheitliche private Halbpergamentbände von ca. 1920 mit goldgeprägtem Deckel- und Rückentitel sowie Kopfgoldschnitt. Die von Stefan George gegründete und formal von C. A. Klein herausgegebene Zeitschrift erschien als Privatdruck mit dem Vermerk: "Die zeitschrift im verlag des herausgebers hat einen geschlossenen von den mitgliedern geladenen leserkreis." Tatsächlich lag die Zeitschrift ohne jede Werbung in ausgewählten Buchhandlungen in Berlin, München, Wien und Paris aus. Sie enthält fast ausschließlich Originalbeiträge, überwiegend Lyrik, ab Folge 10 erschienen sämtliche Beiträge anonym. Zu den Mitarbeitern gehören Andrian, Dauthendey, Derleth, George, Gundolf, Hofmannsthal, Klages, Lechter, Pannwitz, Schuler, Wolfskehl, Wolters u. a. "Angesichts der nicht mehr volkhaften Menschenmassen der Zeit verkündete George die Notwendigkeit der Abkehr des geistigen Menschen von allem Öffentlichen, Offiziellen, Aktuellen. Daher hielt er besonders im ersten Jahrzehnt seine Gruppe und ihre Zeitschrift streng abgeschlossen; selbst bloße Beteiligung der Mitarbeiter an anderen Zeitschriften war durchaus verpönt. Auch nach der naturgemäß langsamen Erweiterung des Kreises und der Vermehrung seiner Kontakte mit dem Publikum lehnte man unverändert den Gedanken einer Verbreitung der Kunst in die Massen ab und erleichterte den Zutritt zur Gruppe, die ein besonderes Lebensgefühl verband, nicht. Infolge dieser Abschließung war die dichterische Geamtwirkung in der Zeit beschränkt, doch intensiv" (Fritz Schlawe). Unser Exemplar leider ohne Folge 8, die im Februar 1910 in einer Auflage von lediglich 100 numerierten Exemplaren erschien und "nur als beigabe zur neunten folge für die mitglieder des engeren kreises gedacht" war; ihr Inhalt war bereits im dritten Auswahlband des Verlags Bondi gedruckt worden (der unserem Exemplar in einem Orig.-Leinenband mit Kopfgoldschnitt und leicht verblaßtem Rücken beiliegt) und für den Privatdruck lediglich um Georges "Nachträge zu Maximin" ergänzt worden, "die nicht für die öffentlichkeit bestimmt sind." Die ersten beiden Folgen wurden in einem Band zusammengebunden und sind zudem lückenhaft: Von Folge 1 fehlen die Nummern 2 und 4, Nr. 5 liegt in der Orig.-Broschur lose und ohne den hinteren Umschlagdeckel ungebunden bei; von Folge 2 fehlen die Nummern 4 und 5 (von jeweils 5 Nummern). Ohne die gelegentlichen Bildbeigaben, jedoch mit der gedruckten Ankündigung zum Erscheinen der Folgen XI und XII von 1919. Die Bände sind vereinzelt gering stockfleckig und zeigen gelegentlich kleine Radierspuren, insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein ordentliches, gut erhaltenes, wenn auch durch die fehlenden Hefte nicht ganz vollständiges Exemplar einer der bedeutendsten und einflußreichsten literarischen Zeitschriften des 20. Jahrhunderts, zugleich der Keimzelle des Kreises um Stefan George. Aufgrund ihres nicht- bzw. nur halböffentlichen Erscheinens ist die Zeitschrift auch in öffentlichen Bibliotheken selten.

         Collection of Ten Photographs from Mooney's Pioneering Investigations of the Ghost Dance and Other Native American Circle Dances

      This extremely rare and important collection documents the famous Ghost Dance and related circle dances soon after the Wounded Knee Massacre. These dramatic photographs, taken by the celebrated James Mooney, show these dances as they were taking place. Viewing the Ghost Dance among the Lakota as a threat, the U.S. Army had killed Sitting Bull while arresting him and soon thereafter killed Spotted Elk and perhaps 150 of his followers at Wounded Knee. Thus these Ghost Dance photographs represent original documentary evidence of a major phenomenon in the history of the American West. These photographs were taken by James Mooney (1861-1921), an anthropologist with the Bureau of American Ethnology. He left Washington in late 1890 to investigate the potentially incendiary Ghost Dance movement. In the winter of 1891 Mooney lived among the Cheyenne, Arapaho, Comanche, Wichita, and other Native Americans in Native American territory as they performed the Ghost Dance ritual, hoping to usher in the American Indian millennium. Mooney reported, "I am so far in with the medicine men, that they have invited me to take part in the dance, although they order any white man away from the grounds" (Moses, The Indian Man: A Biography of James Mooney). Late in 1891, Mooney visited the Native Americans at Pine Ridge, South Dakota, near the site of the Wounded Knee massacre. Finding the Sioux understandably reluctant to discuss the religion, Mooney then crossed the Rockies to locate and interview the founder of the movement, Wovoka in Nevada. During this meeting, the first time that a white man had interviewed Wovoka about his movement, the mystic consented to be photographed. "James Mooney was called 'The Indian Man' not because he dressed like one, nor because he thought American Indian societies were superior to his own, but rather from his knowledge, unsurpassed for its breadth and depth, of a few Indian societies. ... His works are used constantly today in both history and anthropology. They have achieved a timelessness ..." (Moses). One of the few whites to witness and take part in the Ghost Dance, Mooney became the greatest scholar of the ritual and the events which cascaded from this cultural collision. Mooney's Ghost Dance photographs are of the very greatest rarity in the market. We cannot trace any other examples appearing for sale. Ten albumen photographs (4 x 6 in. and 4 ¼ x 7 ½ in.) on original mounts, some with gold bevel. Most faded, light wear and soiling. Most of the photographs bear on the mount recto a pencil caption number likely in Mooney's hand. Extremely rare.

      Wohl Cambridge, 31. X. 1892. - 2 SS. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "I have been laid up ever since the Oriental Congress with an abscess on the back which necessitated an operation & has kept me on my back for the last six or seven weeks. I am just beginning to be able again for a little work & could look at proofsheets. As I can't move about & consult books freely my notes on them might not amount to much, but I might be of some little use [.]".

      London: George Newnes. 1892 - [Detective Fiction]. SECOND EDITION. Octavo (20 x 14cm), pp.[4] 283 [1]. With a lithographic frontispiece by Charles Kerr. In publisher's original red cloth boards, re-backed to style with original spine cloth pasted over. Gilt titles and black border decoration to spine and upper board. Dark brown endpapers supplied. Reading lean, with moderate outer wear and a water stain to the top edge of the upper board. Good. The second of four full-length Sherlock Holmes novels, originally appearing in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine (Feb.1890).

Doyle later discussed this 'golden evening' in his autobiography 'Memories and Adventures' (1924). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Plain Tales from The Hills.

      Macmillan and Co., London 1892 - Third Edition. 10, 310, [2] S. Original-Leinen. Mit Gebrauchsspuren. Buchblock lose im Einband. Insgesamt sehr ordentlich. Exemplar mit farbigen Randzeichnungen. «Plain Tales from the Hills« (veröffentlicht 1888) ist die erste Sammlung von Kurzgeschichten von Rudyard Kipling. Achtundzwanzig von den den 40 Geschichten (so Kipling im Vorwort), wurden zunächst in der »Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, Punjab, British India« zwischen November 1886 und Juni 1887 veröffentlicht. Kipling war als Journalist für die CMG tätig als er noch nicht ganz 17 war. Der Titel bezieht sich, durch ein Wortspiel auf »Plain«, als das Gegenteil von ?Hills? Viele der Geschichten spielen in Hill Station von Simla der Sommerresidenz des britischen R.A.J. Kipling vermittelt mit diesen Geschichten viele Aspekte des Lebens in Britisch-Indien. Ihre ersten Auftritte in Buchform haben in den »Plain Tales« Mrs. Hauksbee, der Polizist Strickland, und der Soldaten Drei (Mulvaney, Ortheris und Learoyd).Exemplar mit farbigen Randzeichnungen (11 große farbige, 6 kleine farbige und 6 kleine in s/w) von unbekannter Hand (sehr wahrscheinlich von einem Offizier, der im R.A.J. stationiert war), die in den Geschichten vorkommende Personen darstellen, bzw. Szenen illustrieren. Die genannten Soldaten Mulvaney, Ortheris und Learroyd sind einzeln und zusammen dargestellt. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1892 - 1892-1899 Wisden Rebound with Original Covers

      1892. Hi, Today I am listing a set of Wisdens , all rebound with covers from a well travelled collector. J Kingsley Havers OBE QC son of Sir William Havers. The books have been to many places , mainly Botswana but also Kenya Belize and Gibraltar which are all listed on the bookplate. The books all tend to have worn bindings (some green some blue) but lovely inside. In detail, in this lot we have 1892 to 1899 Original Wisden Rebinds, all eight books with covers and photoplates within, apart from the 1896 in worn blue boards, 1896 in nicer blue boards, the ones in worn blue boards have some marks and some wear but the internal covers are in good order and contents very respectable. The 1893 and 1896 have loose photoplate and page xxxvi has 2/3rd of it missing in the 1893. A nice cheap set. Strategy 1. Would split. More information and pictures available on request and happy to offer some discount if purchased with other Havers Wisdens that I am listing today.

      R.G. McLean, Toronto 1892 - Elizabeth Driver, in Culinary Landmarks, lists copies of this first edition in only four repositories (all in Ontario, some with 2 copies) and one private collection. Driver devotes over one and one-half pages to describing the first edition of this book and its compilers/editors, Margaret Taylor and Francis McNaught - see Driver, O58.1 (pp. 376-377). Rare indeed. 535 p. : ill. ; 18.5 X 12.5 cm. Remarkably complete and intact in hardcover, despite paste residue to covers from previous owner's superimposed/pasted plain paper cover which I have removed; both front and rear hinges holding though they are begining to crack; all pages present, including pages of adverisements; occasional pages show minimal spots of discolouration from use.
