         Report on the Geological Structure and Stability of the Hill Slopes around Naini Tal.

      Calcutta: Office of the Superintendent of Government Printing, India 1897 - First and only editon. 8vo. pp. [ii], viii, 85; 11 plates at rear, one large folding geological map of Naini Tal in rear pocket; a very good copy in the original cloth-backed boards, soiled, minor wear to extremities. Thomas Henry Holland (1835-1926) worked for the Geological Survey of India, and in 1894 he gained local celebrity for predicting the approximate date of the rupture of the Gohna dam. According to the DNB, “His energy, personality, analytical talent, and eye for economic significance, commended him to the government of India”. In 1894 he was appointed deputy superintendent of the Survey, and by 1903 he had become its director. The present example of his work resulted from his observations at Naini Tal while on his way in 1894 to report on the Gohna landslip. Holland noticed evidence suggesting instability of the station’s hill slopes, and undertook the present survey both to gauge the extent of the danger, and to provide a model for surveys of other stations. The accompanying clear and detailed map of the area indicates the level of expertise that he had reached. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         The Square of Sevens: An Authoritative System of Cartomancy, with a Prefatory Note

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1897. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition. xxv, [1], 72pp. Original black cloth decorated in gilt, red, green, and white, gilt topstain. Very Good+ with rubbing to gilt on front cover, evidence of removed bookplate on paste down with former owner's stamps on front free endpaper and both paste downs; she was Lenore Cosseboom, a founding member of the Church of Satan (alongside Anton LaVey) and priestess, who was apparently often used as a human altar in early COS services. A scarce occult/ literary hoax by Edward Irenaeus Prime-Stevenson, who is most-often remembered for his 1906 pioneering gay-themed novel Imre, published under the pseudonym Xavier Mayne. On top of the interesting provenance of this volume and its rarity, the cover art of this volume-- portraying a mysterious fortune-telling figure beside a black cat-- is truly excellent.

      Nyu York(1897). 1st Edition. Original Paper Wrappers bound inside period blue boards. 8vo. 88 pages ; 21 cm. Includes the frontis photo of Rosenfeld, often missing. In Yiddish, with English and Yiddish covers. Singerman 5258. Rosenfeld sent this copy through the mail, and his handwritten name and return address, clipped from the package, has been pasted onto the English Cover. Title translates into English as, "Song Book. " Morris Rosenfeld (1862 - 1923) was a Yiddish poet whose work sheds light on the living circumstances of emigrants from Eastern Europe in New York's tailoring workshops. "In 1888 Rosenfeld published his first collection of socialist poems...An excellent orator, Rosenfeld often recited his poems to enthusiastic audiences at socialist and union events, and later at large public readings and concerts. Over the next decades his reputation spread as the 'poet laureate of labor. ' His songs were sung by workers in sweatshops, tenement houses, meetings and concerts. In 1898, Harvard professor of Slavic Studies Leo Wiener translated Rosenfeld's Lider-bukh (The Book of Songs) into English with the title Songs from the Ghetto. The book's publication introduced Rosenfeld to the non-Jewish world and was instrumental in transforming him from an obscure local song writer into an established literary figure. His poems were subsequently translated into many European languages, including German, Hungarian, Polish, Rumanian and Russian. His works, known for their stark, realistic presentation of immigrant and sweatshop life, were the subject of many reviews and articles in literary journals throughout the world....In addition to poetry, Rosenfeld also wrote essays and articles on diverse topics, including current affairs, Jewish nationalism, Yiddish language and culture, labor issues, and nature. A contributor to numerous newspapers and periodicals, he wrote for the Folkstsaytung (New York) , Arbeter fraynd (London) , Arbeter tsaytung (New York) , The Jewish Daily Forward (New York) and the Yidishes Tageblat (New York) , among others. He also edited a humorous satirical weekly, Der ashmeday, and the daily New yorker morgnblat. Rosenfeld died of a stroke in 1923 at age 61. His funeral was attended by over 10, 000 people (YIVO, 2005) . OCLC lists 9 copies worldwide. Wrappers are torn otherwise about Very Good- condition. A rare, attractive copy, with signature, from just before the author's rise to fame. (AMR-49-49)

      Stuttgart, W. Spemann, 1897. - 8vo. XXIX, (1), 879, (1), 28, (3) pp. Publisher's temporary wrappers with series title stamped to upper cover. Detailed study of the Shafi'i school of fiqh named after Abu 'Abdullah Muhammad ibn Idris, Imam al-Shafi'i, or 'Shaykh al-Islam'. Al-Shafi‘i developed the science of fiqh unifying 'revealed sources' - the Quran and hadith - with human reasoning to provide a basis in law. With this systematization of shari'a he provided a legacy of unity for all Muslims and forestalled the development of independent, regionally based legal systems. The four Sunni legals schools or madhhabs- keep their traditions within the framework that Shafi'i established. The Shafi'i school is followed in many different places in the Islamic world, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Egypt, Somalia, and Yemen. - Includes the Arabic text of 'Abû-Shugâ. - An uncut, untrimmed copy.

Hier war ich immer wieder zu finden, denn ich suchte von Anfang an die ursprüngliche Natur in ihren Stimmungen im Wechsel der Jahres- und Tageszeiten darzustellen, die Natur, unberührt vom Menschen und von den Veränderungen, die durch seiner Hände Werk ihr aufgedrückt wurden.“ - Eine horizontale Knickspur im oberen Darstellungsrand.

         History of the Liverpool Privateers and Letters of Marque with an Account of the Liverpool Slave Trade.

      - London, William Heinemann, 1897. 8vo. Original dark red cloth, spine lettered in giltt; pp. xv, 718, [2]; four folding facsimiles, minimal wear to binding; provenance: contemporary Liverpool ownership inscription. Scarce first edition of the first full-length book to tap into the history of the 'national sin' (p. v). - We could not find any information about the author, despite - exactly because - he wrote this substantial book. 'History of the Liverpool Privateers… is one of the most detailed 19th century accounts of the slave trade. It gathers original source materials which feature comparative tables of figures and profits connected with the trade, newspaper articles and advertisements, and facsimiles of manuscript documents, including ship logs. Also included are descriptive accounts of the treacherous journeys at sea, the brutal treatment received by African peoples, and the Abolition campaign. Although the book was written retrospectively in 1897, after Britain ceased involvement in the slave trade, it is still regarded as a reputable source. […] On page 680 a comparative table shows the numbers of ships that left Liverpool, London and Bristol for Africa, to board African people and transport them to America as slaves. This movement is part of the ‘trade triangle’ in the transatlantic slave trade. The table, covering years 1795-1804, reveals that the port of Liverpool dominated the slave trade in the late 18th century. In 1798, for example, ships from Liverpool potentially boarded 53,051 Africans ("Slaves Allowed"), compared with figures of 2,650 and 1,433 from London and Bristol, respectively. On page 477, Williams presents a broader view of England’s involvement in the slave trade. Here, he makes reference to an estimate that 20,000 Africans were held as slaves by London families or businesses in the late 18th century. To put that figure into perspective, today 20,000 people constitute a regular population size for a British town. Williams also details some of the horrendous, brutalising treatment carried out by English slaveholders (British Library, online, apparently not being able to provide us with any biographical information about Gomer Williams either).

         An Unknown People

      London: A & H. B. Bonner. 1897. Pamphlet. 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; [LGBTQ] 7 ¾” x 5”. Stitched wrappers. Pp. [1-6] 7-37 [blank, 2] Very good: wrappers dust soiled with some tiny edge chips, a 1cm tear to the front wrapper and a ½” closed tear to rear wrapper; leaves lightly toned. “One of the earliest advocates of freedom for the people he termed “Homogenic”, Edward Carpenter set the stage over one hundred years ago for what would become today's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Freedom Movement. Carpenter's influence on Mattachine Society and Radical Fairies founder Harry Hay directly contributed to the birth of the modern LGBT movement. ” ( Published in the wake of the anti-gay hysteria that resulted from the Oscar Wilde trials two years before, this book, Carpenter pays homage to K. H. Ulrich's pioneering works on people romantically interested in members of their own sex. He points out that homosexuals are not by their nature “abnormal or morbid” and that attempts to change their sexuality almost universally fail. He also states that the number of homosexuals in society is large enough that, “it becomes a duty for society not only to understand them but to help them to understand themselves. ”OCLC records 22 copies of this edition as well as 19 copies of an edition printed the same year stating “publisher not identified”. Hypatia Bradlaugh Bonner, the publisher of this pamphlet also published the magazine, The Reformer, where this essay first appeared. A presentable copy of a fragile publication. .
