         CYRANO DE BERGERAC

      Eugène Fasquelle, Paris 1898 - 200 x 140 mm. (7 3/4 x 5 1/2"). 6 p.l, [13]-225 pp., [1] leaf (first and last leaves blank). FIRST EDITION, First Printing. Publisher's original light green paper wrappers, ENTIRELY UNOPENED. With early glassine wrapper. In a later cloth clamshell box. Rear cover with a hint of smudging and rumpling, a touch of fraying to tail of spine, but AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, never read and little changed since the day it left the press. This is a remarkable unopened copy of Rostand's influential and enduringly popular verse play in five acts. A theatrical triumph from its opening night, "Cyrano" was quickly translated into multiple languages, and brought to English the untranslatable term, "panache." Rostand (1868-1918) wrote a number of successful plays, often, like "Cyrano," based on figures from French history. While copies appear on the market with some regularity, one is very unlikely to find one in closer to original condition than the present volume.

         Études d'économie politique appliquée. (Théorie de la production de la richesse sociale).

      Lausanne & Paris: F. Rouge & F. Pichon, 1898 - Octavo (208 x 134 mm). Near contemporary quarter morocco, speckled paper boards, red morocco label to spine, raised bands ruled in blind, marbled endpapers, edges sprinkled brown, partially unopened. Some wear to corners and lower board, small nick to second raised band, boards gently scuffed, contents lightly browned and plates foxed as typical, overall a very good copy. 4 folding plates. First edition of this collection of articles, originally intended to complete Walras's Élements d'économie politique pure under the title Élements d'économie politique appliquée. The treatise remained unfinished, however, and it was eventually published in the form of incomplete Études. "Three-quarters of the volume are devoted to money and finance; the rest is divided into three roughly equal parts - between the study of monopolies, of agricultural studies, of industry and commerce and the 'Esquisse d'une doctrine économique et sociale'. In Part I, 'Money' - more than a third of the book - Walras presents again the chapters that had been expurgated from the third edition of Éléments, the Theory of Money and half a dozen articles published in scientific journals and newspapers. The part entitled "II. Monopolies" consists of only one substantial study dating back to 1875, 'L'État et les chemins de fer', that had been turned down by the Journal des économistes. Part III contains three articles whose titles speak for themselves: 'The influence of communication between markets on the situation of rural communities', 'Applied economics and the protection of wages' and 'Theory of free trade'. Three parts follow, on credit, banking (with a text that is crucial to understand Walras's monetary theory, 'Mathematical theory of banknotes') and stock markets. The book concludes with 'Outline of an economic and social doctrine'" (Faccarello & Kurz, 256). Einaudi 5969; Walker 205. See Gilbert Faccarello & Heinz D. Kurz, Handbook on the History of Economic Analysis Volume I: Great Economists Since Petty and Boisguilbert. Edward Elgar Publishing, 2016. [Attributes: First Edition]

Original cloth over bevelled boards, upper boards blocked in gilt, silver and red, with vignettes depicting Fram icebound, spines blocked in gilt and silver with titles and vignettes, pictorial endpapers, all edges speckled in red.

In near fine condition.A very sharp example. In 1890, Norwegian scientist and explorer Fridtjof Nansen announced an innovative plan for Northern polar expeditions. "His theory, that a drift-current sets across the polar regions from Bering Strait... towards the east coast of Greenland was based on a number of indications... His intention was to get his vessel fixed in the ice to the north of Eastern Siberia and let her drift with it." Although criticized, his plan succeeded. "His ship, the 'Fram' ('Forward'), was specially built of immense strength and peculiar form" in order to endure the ice-floes. "During the winter of 1894-95 it was decided that an expedition should be made northward over the ice on foot in the spring... Being satisfied that the 'Fram' would continue to drift safely," Nansen led the expedition to 86 degrees North, "the highest latitude then reached by man" (Britannica).

A magnificent set that attests to the enormous popular appeal – bordering on reverence – for the Poet Laureate who was lionised like no other.

         The Jew the Gypsy and El Islam

      1898 - Second edition. Portrait frontispiece. 8vo. Twentieth century buckram, black morocco label gilt to spine, some light foxing to frontis. as usual. xx, 351pp. London, The first edition, of which Penzer makes no mention, was published in the United States in the same year, but did not include a portrait frontispiece as here. The material for this book was collected at various periods during Burton's life, according to Wilkins' Preface, with that for The Jew having been put together whilst the Burtons were in Damascus (1869 to 1871). El Islam on the other hand was taken from a manuscript which Burton wrote on his return from Mecca and remains largely unaltered. Although Burton's essays might appear to be detached and analytical, this approach often brought him into disrepute, particularly in his early years in India when his amoral tone deeply offended his superiors.

[It] is a mirror of conflicting attitudes which are, in fact, contemporary with our present cultural dilemmas. But culture itself always reflects the state of society. Max Nordau presents us with a searchlight whose beams reflect the kind of world [we] have made for [ourselves.]"—George L. Mosse in his introduction to the 1968 edition. (Amazon) Max Simon Nordau (born Simon Maximilian Südfeld; July 29, 1849 – January 23, 1923), was a Zionist leader, physician, author, and social critic. He was a co-founder of the World Zionist Organization together with Theodor Herzl, and president or vice president of several Zionist congresses. As a social critic, he wrote a number of controversial books, including The Conventional Lies of Our Civilisation (1883), Degeneration (1892), and Paradoxes (1896). Although not his most popular or successful work whilst alive, Degeneration is the book most often remembered and cited today. (Wikipedia)

This volume is the last to be printed by the Kelmscott Press, and it is the most important contemporaneous source of comment on its founding, operation, and publications. Peterson quotes Newdigate, who says that this is "one of the three books that every student of English book-production ought to read." This book appears in the marketplace with some regularity, but it is impossible to find a better copy than the present one.. 210 x 150 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 3/4"). 4 p.l.
