        IN THE KEY OF BLUE AND OTHER PROSE ESSAYS

      Elkin Mathews & John Lane / Macmillan & Co., London & New York 1893 - Pale blue cloth, elaborately stamped in gilt after a design by Ricketts, t.e.g. Minor rubbing at extremities, endsheets a bit foxed and tanned, as usual, small bookseller's ticket on pastedown, edges faintly tanned, trace of cracking to rear inner hinge, but a very good, bright copy. First edition, ordinary paper issue, in the proper first state of the binding. "A few copies were bound in light blue cloth, and the late Mr. Mathews informed me that the whole of the ordinary issue was to have been so bound, but that Mr. Ricketts came in and objected, making a jest about 'Ricketts' Blue,' [a common commercial dye of the time] and therefore the cream cloth was substituted" - Babington. "Beyond doubt this state is highly uncommon, and there appears every reason to believe these are the earliest copies." - Colbeck. This copy bears an interesting gift inscription on the front free endsheet: [Recipient erased] "in memory of pleasant days at Deal July-August 1894. CEM / R.M. Dawkins. Jan. 1912." That the inscription potentially is by the eminent archaeologist and classical scholar (1871 - 1955), and friend of Baron Corvo and Norman Douglas, does not seem beyond possibility. Certainly it is a topically probable association. BABINGTON 56. COLBECK II:815.

        Russian Map of the Spread of Cholera].

      c1893]., [St Petersberg, 1893 - Rare epidemiological map depicting the spread of the 1892 Cholera Epidemic across Russia Lithograph map in two colours. This extremely rare map depicts the spread of the Russian Cholera Epidemic of 1892, which officially claimed 267,800 lives. The map is one of only a handful of Cholera maps to have been printed entirely in Russian Cyrillic, and was lithographed in St. Petersburg not long after the outbreak by C. de Castelli. The map embraces the western two-thirds of the Russian Empire, extending eastward just past Lake Baikal. The Russian Cholera Epidemic of 1892 was part of the Fifth International Cholera Pandemic (1881-96), and as shown here by a series of red arrows, the epidemic first entered Russian territory from Persia. From there it travelled across the Caspian Sea, through the Caucuses and then up north-westwards across the Steppes to infect Kiev, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Warsaw. Next, the epidemic wheeled eastwards, travelling across Siberia, almost as far as Irkutsk. Russia was especially vulnerable to Cholera due to the great poverty and low hygienic standards of many of its rural areas and urban slums. Moreover, the Tsarist regime's implementation of health standards and medical systems was irregular and often not well coordinated. Russia had also suffered greatly during both the Third (1852-60) and Fourth (1863-75) International Cholera Pandemics. The horrendous catastrophe motivated the Russian authorities to call a Cholera Conference, held in St. Petersburg in December 1892, during which new medical regimes were agreed. Nevertheless, the epidemic in Russia continued into 1893, killing a further 30,000 people. Cholera maps printed in Russian Cyrillic are extraordinary, and the present work is extremely rare – we cannot trace even a reference to the map, let alone the location of another example. It was evidently extracted from an unidentified book or portfolio that featured a series of other like epidemiological maps (of which the present map is No. 18). The only other map from this series we have been able to trace is a map of the Russian Influenza Epidemic of October 1889 to March 1890, in the Collection of the Library of Congress.

        The Prince of India [RARE COPY in the dust jackets and storage box by the Author of Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ]

      Harper and Brothers, New York 1893 - A Fine, Bright, Superior, copy of the first edition, first printing (tiny split to the first volume's rear hinge), in Fine dust jackets (with modest wear to the spine ends), complete with the original warehouse storage box. A person of wide-ranging ability, Lew Wallace was, at various times, a lawyer in private practice, the prosecuting attorney of Indiana's 1st Congressional District, a Union General in the American Civil War, the Governor of the New Mexico Territory, a Major General in the Mexican Army,the U.S. minister to the Ottoman Empire, a member of the military commission that investigated the Lincoln assassination conspirators, and a Best-Selling Author. [In America's Civil War, Wallace attained the rank of Major General, participated in the Battle of Fort Donelson, the Battle of Shiloh, and the Battle of Monocacy, and on June 12, 1861, led his Regiment to victory in a seemingly minor battle at Romney, Virginia . in present-day West Virginia. The rout was rather notable in that the victory gave a much-needed morale boost to Union troops and led to the Confederate evacuation of Harpers Ferry on June 18.] Wallace wrote a number of novels, including "Ben-Hur" which became the best-selling American novel of the 19th century, surpassing Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin". However, Wallace considered "The Prince of India" to be his best novel. This is a remarkable copy of that novel, not only because of its beautiful condition, but also because each Volume wears its dust jacket and the set resides in the original storage box. ONLY TWO SUCH COPIES ARE KNOWN TO EXIST. The viewer will notice, of course, that, being from the period when jackets typically were used not to sell books but only to keep books clean until put out for sale, the dust jackets are plain. [Virtually all of the dust jackets for the novel would have been discarded.] The viewer also will see that the spine of each dust jacket is pinch-torn to reveal each volume's number (I and II) — a common warehouse practice — which would have made verifying that both volumes comprising the novel were present within the storage box an easy process for the person retrieving the books from the storage shelf. Furthermore, the dust jackets from the period also often lacked the decoration one sees on later-published books. Such jackets also often did not show one or all of the title, the author, or the publisher — all three being absent from these dust jackets. As the box has a label, it was not necessary to disturb the dust jackets -- other than to pinch-tear them to show the each Volume number -- as the author and title are show on the storage box label, making locating the set on the warehouse shelves easier than would otherwise have been the case. (While the box as some general wear, its bottom panel is separated, and one rear corner seam is fully split, the box is complete and could easily be restored by a good binder.) While the term "Rare" is overused when describing books, this copy of the novel, is TRULY RARE -- WITH ONLY TWO SUCH COPIES KNOWN TO EXIST IN THE DUST JACKETS -- and even RARER IN THE STORAGE BOX, making this copy a PART OF BOOK HISTORY and AN IMPORTANT COPY as well. A REMARKABLE SURVIVOR OF BIBLIOGRAPHIC IMPORTANCE. [OFFERS ON THIS SET WILL BE CONSIDERED.] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

His major speeches were written from the beginning of 959 onwards; he often composed to exhort the population to support Sayf al-Dawla in the war against the Byzantines and his speeches aroused great enthusiasm. They contain references to contemporary events, for example the taking of Aleppo by the Byzantines in 962, the measures taken for the defense of Mayyafarikin, the arrival in that town of volunteers from Khurasan, the assassination of Nicephorus Phocas in 969, etc. Ibn Nubbata’s sermons were collected and arranged together with some sermons by his son Abu Tahir Muhammad and by his grandson Abu-L-Faraj; collected circa 1223, they have been printed in various editions, of which one of the best known is the Beirut edition". (Encyclopaedia of Islam - vol. 3 p.900). Size: 8vo. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

L'Urien Travel è uno dei grandi libri illustrati nella tradizione del libro d'artista inaugurata da Edouard Manet, Charles Cros e Stéphane Mallarmé nel 1874-1875. La collaborazione tra il pittore e l'autore era più vicino. "Questo libro è le tracce più pronunciati del simbolismo, della ratifica da parte dei Nabis del principio libro dialogo" (Yves Peyre). Questo viaggio è niente odissea ironica, scritta "in reazione contro la scuola naturalista" o alcuni giovani in cerca di "destino glorioso" intraprendere un viaggio allegorico che conduce nelle lande ghiacciate di sterilità.

Le Voyage d'Urien est un des grands livres illustrés dans la tradition du livre de peintre inaugurée par Édouard Manet, Charles Cros et Stéphane Mallarmé en 1874-1875.

"Ce livre est la trace la plus accentuée du symbolisme, la ratification par les Nabis du principe du livre de dialogue" (Yves Peyré). Ce voyage du Rien est une odyssée ironique, écrite "en réaction contre l'école naturaliste" oû quelques jeunes gens en quête de "glorieuses destinées" s'embarquent pour un périple allégorique qui débouche dans les déserts glacés de la stérilité.

        Bad for Carreiro, Looks As If He is the Murderer, He Buys Shoes.

      1893 - A Lesser-Known, But Equally Notorious, Axe-Murder in Fall River, Massachusetts [Broadside]. [Murder]. [Carreiro, Jose]. "Bad for Carreiro. Looks as If He is the Murderer. He Buys Shoes and Offers a Trade Dollar, And a Mutilated Half Dollar in Payment. Similar Coins Taken from Bertha's Room. Denies Any Such Transaction. Portuguese Answering His Description. Seen Running on Wilson Road on Morning of the Murder. Carrero Will be Charged with Murder in the District Court Tomorrow. Fine Piece of Police Work." Daily Evening News Bulletin! [Fall River, MA, June, 1893]. 17-1/4" x 10-3/4" broadside, four-column text below headline. Light browning, faint vertical and horizontal fold lines and creases, light rubbing and a few minor tears to edges. $650. * Carreiro, a Portuguese immigrant, entered the home of his former employer, Stephen Manchester, killed and dismembered his daughter, Bertha, with an axe and took money from her room. As the headline indicates, he was detected when he tried to use currency that had distinct marks that indicated Bertha's ownership. People immediately saw similarities between this case and the Lizzie Borden murders, which took place in Fall River the previous year. Along with the type of murder and mutilation, both acts occurred midday without a clear motive. Carreiro holds the dubious honor of Fall River's second most notorious axe murderer. This appears to be an unrecorded broadside. No copies listed on OCLC. Not in McDade, which has no accounts of this murder.
