         Die Bücher der Hirten- und Preisgedichte der Sagen und Sänge und der hängenden Gärten.

      Bln im Verlage der Blätter für die Kunst 1895 - 110(2) S. Gelbes Leder d. Zt. mit 4 falschen Bünden (Deckel etwas fleckig). Erste Ausgabe. Landmann 62. Wilp./G. 6. - Eines von nur 200 Exemplaren (!) auf leicht gelblichem Bütten, gedruckt bei F. Cynamon, Berlin, erschienen im Dezember 1895. Auch noch bei diesem vierten Buch Georges ist die Öffentlichkeit praktisch ausgeschlossen, auch wenn die Auflagenzahl sich gegenüber den ersten 3 Bänden verdoppelt hat. Erst im Jahr 1899 (Ende 1898) erschienen die ersten öffentlichen Ausgaben seiner Bücher im Verlag Bondi. - Ein Teil der Gedichte war bereits in den Blättern für die Kunst erschienen und trägt nun die gedruckte Widmung "Seien diese seiten mit den namen dreier dichter geschmückt: Paul Gerardy, Wenzeslaus Lieder, Karl Wolfskehl, München 1894/95". - Die in diesem Band vereinigten drei Bücher weisen auf drei Bildungswelten hin: die Antike, das Mittelalter und den Orient. "Die Hirtengedichte wachsen aus einer griechischen Sinnesart. Auch hier freilich keine Auffrischung des Vergangenen, sondern Vergegenwärtigung des Ewigen!" So beschreibt Friedrich Gundolf den ersten Teil. Auch im zweiten Buch, welches das Mittelalter, das Rittertum mit seinen menschlichen Urformen wie Andacht, Minne, Fehde und Treue erlebt, geht es nicht um romantisches Schweifen, "sondern die persönliche Heraufkunft der überpersönlichen Kräfte die im Rittertum Geschichte sind. Es ist die Er-innerung (anamnesis) eines neuen Menschen - die Er-neuung (nicht Wieder-holung) einer alten Zeit, die Äußer-ung einer ewigen Lage." (Gundolf). Ebenso wird im dritten Teil der Orient, die "sinnliche Gewalt des Ostens" durchlebt und aus dem rein historischen Stoff das Ewige gezogen. Bernhard Zeller fast im Marbacher Katalog zum 100. Geburtstag Georges zusammen: "Diese geschichtlichen Geistesräume geben George die Möglichkeit, nach dem Denken und Dichten in 'fremdem Sprachstoff' mit verschiedenen Stilen zu spielen, um auf den eigenen hinzuarbeiten. Was dabei entsteht, sind 'spiegelungen einer seele die vorübergehend in andere zeiten und örtlichkeiten geflohen' war." - Minimal stockfleckiger Titel, sonst sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar dieses Rarissimum der frühesten George-Titel!

Collection of 107 undated (circa 1895)hand-painted/stenciled lithographs and photographs of fruit and fruit trees in a black leather agent book, all lithographs and photos are "pocket sized," approx. 6'' x 9'', all show wear and light soiling, some have pencil notes written on them, as well as pencil stenciling, collection appears to be missing one plate, most binding ribbons are intact with the exception of one near the middle. Agent book is heavily faded and chipped, frayed corners and edges, sunned edges, does not close properly. According to the University of Rochester, Mina (or Minnie) Brunswick (1849-Rochester, September 9, 1925) was listed in the Rochester city directories as a producer of fruit plates or nurserymen's plates from 1888 through 1920. Her first advertisement, in the 1889 directory, reads in part: "M. Brunswick & Co., (Formerly with D. M. Dewey), Manufacturers of Hand Painted Fruit and Ornamental Plates." Rochester University further states that by the 1910s Brunswick appears to have been the last producer of hand-painted (stenciled) plates in Rochester..

         Prunkmappe anlässlich des 60. Geburtstages, mit illustrierter und kalligrafierter, vielfach signierter Glückwunsch-Urkunde des Steyrer Gewerbe-Vereines und kaiserlicher Urkunde vom 14. Dezember 1884 anlässlich der Ernennung zum Ritter des Franz Joseph-Ordens

      [TOMITZ, Franz]: Prunkmappe anlässlich des 60. Geburtstages von Franz Tomitz, mit illustrierter und kalligrafierter Glückwunsch-Urkunde des »Gewerbe-Vereines des Steyrer Industriebezirkes in Stadt Steyr« in dreifarbiger Tusche, dieselbe datiert mit „1. October 1895", weiters 5 beigebundenen lithografierten Blättern mit 96 eigenhändischen Unterschriften, sowie eingelegter kaiserlicher Urkunde anlässlich der Ernennung von Franz Tomitz zum Ritter des Franz Joseph-Ordens vom 14. Dezember 1884, dieselbe teils kalligrafiert, mit kaiserlichem Blindstempel versehen und eigenhändig signiert von Ordens-Sekretär Dr. August Ritter von Battioli. Steyr: E. Haas & Co. (Illustr., Kalligrafie, Lithografie) 1895. 46:35 cm (Mappe), 44:34 (Urkunde und Blätter). Prunkmappe mit zwei handschriftlichen Urkunden für den Möbelhändler Franz Tomitz (1835-1904), einem der prominentesten und verdienstvollsten Bürger der Stadt Steyr in seiner Zeit. Von 1875 bis 1901 war der Liberale Tomitz im Gemeinderat tätig und war er in dieser Zeit auch als Vizebürgermeister tätig. Im Rahmen seiner politischen Funktionen, auch als Gründer bzw. führendes Mitglied der „Grünober-Gesellschaft" (ab 1859) erwarb sich Tomitz in der Folge besonders große Verdienste um das soziale und kulturelle Leben seiner Heimatstadt. Er arrangierte zunächst den großen historischen Festzug anlässlich des 900. Stadtjubiläums (1880). 1884 fungierte er dann als einer der Hauptorganisatoren der "Electrischen-Landes-Industrie-Forst und culturhistorischen Ausstellung", die ihm wohl die vorliegende Ehrung des Gewerbe-Vereins eingebracht hat. Im Zuge dessen wurde Tomitz auch über die Grenzen Steyrs bekannt, zum Kaiserlichen Rat und zum Ritter des Franz Josephs-Ordens ernannt, wie die dieser Mappe beiliegenden Urkunde bestätigt. 1885 eröffnete Tomitz als Obmann des „Vereins der Schulfreunde" eine Suppenanstalt für Volksschüler. Im gleichen Jahr initiierte als in Folge seiner Ausstellungstätigkeit auch das Bezirksmuseum. Außerdem war Tomitz federführend in den Komitees zur Errichtung des Denkmals für den Industriellen Josef Werndl (1894) und des Bruckner-Denkmals (1898). Franz Tomitz erhielt für seine Verdienste die Steyrer Ehrenbürgerschaft. Heute ist nach ihm die „Tomitzstraße" benannt. Prunkmappe eines ungenannten Buchbinders. Holzdecken und Rücken sind mit mennigrotem Samt überzogen, der Rücken weist zusätzlich eine Schmuckbindung in der Form einer Messingkordel auf, die durch zwei mittig eingearbeitete Messingösen gezogen ist. Die Vorderdecke ist aufwendig mit Messing beschlagen: zunächst von außen nach innen mit einem umlaufenden, durch Rautenmuster ornamentierten Rahmen in vier Teilen, in dessen horizontale und vertikale Verläufe teils mit den Rahmenlinien überlappendes Blumen und Rankenwerk eingearbeitet ist. In den Ecken schließen sich vier ebenso gestaltete Vignetten an, die zusätzlich durch als rot, blau und weiß emaillierte Blumenknöpfe akzentuiert sind. Der Mittelteil besteht aus einem breiten Doppelschild. Auf dem vorderen, mit Rankenmustern getriebenen Schild sind die weiß bzw. rot emaillierten und in Punktierung gefassten Initialen „F" und „T" montiert, ebenso eine Banderole mit schwarz aufgemalten Jahreszahlen „1835-1895". Der hintere Schild besteht aus einer emaillierten Vignette mit mehrfarbigem Rankenwerk, um ihn verläuft abermals üppiges florales Rankenwerk. Die Vorsätze der Mappe sind aus eierschalenfarbenem, blindgemustertem Satin über Karton gefertigt. Samtüberzug an den Ecken und Kanten an wenigen Stellen gering berieben und auf der Hinterseite mit einer kleinen Kratzspuren, die Blätter an wenigen Stellen gering finger-, stock- und schmutzfleckig, insgesamt ist dieses einzigartige historische Dokument sehr gut erhalten.

New edition, with a new preface by Thomas Hardy, issued as part of the 'Wessex Novels'. Publisher's dark green cloth with gilt titles to spine and gilt Hardy monogram device to upper board.

Contents a little toned, cloth with some rubbing/soiling neat repair to crown and rear joint; very good.

The author revised the text extensively for this 1895 edition. The later book and film 'Tamara Drew' is a modern re-working of this enduring countryside relationship drama. The recipient of this copy, Susan Harris, Countess of Malmesbury (Wilshire) was a fellow writer, friend and correspondent of Thomas Hardy, and collaborator with the Victorian novelist and literary hostess Violet Hunt, who established the literary Review in 1908. Purdy, pp.61-67.

Beinecke (Yale) 610; Princeton 60A. Housed in a cloth slipcase with leather labels, with two inner chemises. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         THE TIME MACHINE

      William Heinemann, London 1895 - 180 x 115 mm. (7 4 1/4"). 4 p.l., 151, [1] pp. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, Later Issue. Publisher's tan cloth, upper cover with titling and the figure of a sphinx printed in purple ink. Rear pastedown with bookseller's ticket. Cloth a bit soiled, tiny split in fabric at head of spine, isolated small marginal spots or corner creases, but an excellent copy, the insubstantial binding very solid, and the text perfectly pleasing. The author's first novel, this was H. G. Wells' breakthrough work, an early example of science fiction, and the first novel to propose the idea of a device that allowed one to travel through time. It was an immediate success, and launched Wells (1866-1946) as an author of "scientific romances." The prolific and durable Wells is most famous for his imaginative fiction from the 1890s, works like the present volume, along with "The Island of Dr. Moreau" (1896), "The Invisible Man (1897)," "War of the Worlds" (1898) and "When the Sleeper Awakes" (1899), all of which helped to establish him as a master of science fiction. By the time Wells died, he had published more than 100 books and earned his fame not only as a writer, but also as a minor prophet who accurately predicted war planes, tanks, the atomic bomb, and World War II. According to DNB, his books "remain unsurpassed for their imagination and visionary power. They reveal his profound grasp of the changes-perhaps the diminution-in the meaning and sense of purpose of human life brought about by Darwinian evolutionary theory. Their pessimism is at one with the fin de siècle mood, but the passing of time has not dimmed their assault on human complacency. Where Wells's contemporaries saw him as adding what Tyndall had called the 'scientific imagination' to nineteenth-century romance, the twentieth century regarded him as the greatest of the forerunners of modern science fiction." Our copy is a later printing of the first edition, with other works by the publisher listed on the verso of the half title, and without the 16 pages of publisher's ads at the end.

         The Stolen Bacillus and Other Incidents

      London: Methuen & Co, 1895. First edition. 276, [1], 32 (ads, dated September 1895) pp. 8vo. Publisher's blue cloth gilt, stamped in gilt. Slight lean, spine dulled and creased, extremities rubbed, hinges cracked or starting,front free endpaper loose and chipped, stain to pp. 73-4. Laid into a half red morocco slipcase and chemise. First edition. 276, [1], 32 (ads, dated September 1895) pp. 8vo. Inscribed to Wells's Literary Mentor W.E. Henley. First edition, presentation copy, of this early collection of H.G. Wells short stories, inscribed by the author to W.E. Henley on the half-title: "With kindest regards from the author. (I apologize for the wrong done your balcony on p 73)." Examination of the page reveals a dark stain, perhaps coffee spilled by Wells across the book and on to Henley's balcony. W.E.

Wells short stories, inscribed by the author to W.E. Henley on the half-title: "With kindest regards from the author. (I apologize for the wrong done your balcony on p 73)."

         THE TIME MACHINE

      London: William Heinemann, 1895. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, Later Issue. The author's first novel, this was H. G. Wells' breakthrough work, an early example of science fiction, and the first novel to propose the idea of a device that allowed one to travel through time. It was an immediate success, and launched Wells (1866-1946) as an author of "scientific romances." The prolific and durable Wells is most famous for his imaginative fiction from the 1890s, works like the present volume, along with "The Island of Dr. Moreau" (1896), "The Invisible Man (1897)," "War of the Worlds" (1898) and "When the Sleeper Awakes" (1899), all of which helped to establish him as a master of science fiction. By the time Wells died, he had published more than 100 books and earned his fame not only as a writer, but also as a minor prophet who accurately predicted war planes, tanks, the atomic bomb, and World War II. According to DNB, his books "remain unsurpassed for their imagination and visionary power. They reveal his profound grasp of the changes—perhaps the diminution—in the meaning and sense of purpose of human life brought about by Darwinian evolutionary theory. Their pessimism is at one with the fin de siècle mood, but the passing of time has not dimmed their assault on human complacency. Where Wells's contemporaries saw him as adding what Tyndall had called the 'scientific imagination' to nineteenth-century romance, the twentieth century regarded him as the greatest of the forerunners of modern science fiction." Our copy is a later printing of the first edition, with other works by the publisher listed on the verso of the half title, and without the 16 pages of publisher's ads at the end.. 180 x 115 mm. (7 4 1/4"). 4 p.l., 151, [1] pp. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, Later Issue. Publisher's tan cloth, upper cover with titling and the figure of a sphinx printed in purple ink.Rear pastedown with bookseller's ticket.Cloth a bit soiled, tiny split in fabric at head of spine, isolated small marginal spots or corner creases, but an excellent copy, the insubstantial binding very solid, and the text perfectly pleasing.The author's first novel, this was H.

         CANYONS OF THE COLORADO

      Flood & Vincent (Chatauqua-Century Press), Meadville, Pennsylvania 1895 - Large Quarto. (11.75" x 9"). Half-bound Brown Leather over textured cloth boards. Top edge gilt, with all leather junctures double-ruled in gilt. Bright gilt lettering to front board and five-hubbed spine.Recent conservation by a third-generation conservator. This particular copy was ONCE a deaccessioned library copy, but has been masterfully restored to its current, near-fine state by a third-generation conservator/binder. A very few of the preliminary pages show tiny lower corner chips.About this greatly expanded account of (the one-armed) Powell's exploratory voyage and survey along the entire length of The Colorado River, Howes (P-527, p. 465) writes: "The first complete narrative; his earlier reports were largely devoted to scientific data." 400 pp. plus advertisement at rear. 250 illustrations. though reprinted several times in the twentieth-Century, exceedingly rare in this, the first edition. Gorgeous, restored copy of an extremely rare and groundbreaking narrative of pioneer exploration. Powell, heretofore not much inclined to write lengthier pieces, yielded to pressure from Congressmen Garfield to complete the book-length report Explorations of the Colorado River of the West, published in 1875. When issued it included chapters by Harry Thompson, Elliott Coues, and G. Brown Goode, and as well included eighty-one illustrations, some by Thomas Moran. But in 1895, twenty years later, "the publishers Flood & Vincent brought out a [this] new edition which "was now all Powell's book, his final statement on the country he had set out to udnerstand and interpret." He doubled the number of pages, and included three times the number of illustrations. but the most striking change Powell made.was that he now filled the book with Indians -- Apaches,Navajos, Utes, Paiutes --people who had effectively been erased from [previous] accounts.Even the white man is included in Powell's revised work, though he shows up merely as a cartoon figure desecrating the scene.What Powell seemed to be arguing however, was that it was not enough for Americans to understand or appreciate nature.People belong in our pictures and places." (A River Running West: The Life of John Wesley Powell, by Donald Worster,Oxford U. Press, NY., 2001, pp. 332-335.). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
