         The Tale of Peter Rabbit

      Frederick Warne and Co 1904 - Superb copy of the scarce 1st issue of the silk moire and gilt deluxe binding. It is the 7th or 8th issue of the Peter Rabbit title including the two private printings. The 7th and 8th printing are identical and can be identified by the white cat repeated endpapers - see Linder. This is likely to be the 8th as that coincided with the 1st issue if this deluxe binding in 1904. See Linder (p421/422). There was an earlier rather dull deluxe binding that Potter wasn't happy with and worked on this later design which became the standard for the deluxe gilt and silk bindings from 1904. This copy is in beautiful near fine condition with lovely unfaded cloth and bright gilt. There are a few places, however, where the webbing is visible between the pages. All edges gilt as required. In its original glassine cover which is highly unusual for any early title, especially a deluxe edition (priced at 1/6 as a deluxe should be). New Titles for 1904 listed on wrapper. All in all a great collector's copy. Please ask for any additional details or photographs you might require. Paypal accepted. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Autograph Telegram Signed

      1904 - SCOTT, Robert F. Autograph manuscript draft for a telegram signed ("Rob. F. Scott") to an unknown recipient. Auckland Island, [circa March 20, 1904]. Four folio pages. $16,500.Fine four-page autograph account intended for telegram of Scott's expedition to the Antarctic written upon his return in 1904.Scott launched his journey of exploration in 1901 and remained within the frigid reaches of the southern hemisphere for the next three years. Here, Scott recounts the last year of the expedition: "After departure of "˜Morning' 1903". temperatures fell rapidly men employed laying in stock of seal meat for winter. Winter passed most pleasantly and in all respects with greater comfort than that of 1902". the routine of scientific observations and work was continued". Spring found all in excellent health and spirits". Wilson & party visited Emperor penguin roosting at Cape Crozier with success". temperatures encountered". constantly below -50° Fahr." Scott takes note of several expeditions that met with varying degrees of success, including one which explored a strait containing a "large glacier of inland ice" and another which discovered "a vast plain". [which was determined] to be afloat." He happily notes that "these journeys performed under very unfavorable conditions of weather & surface have added much to our information." Scott's telegram contains descriptions of the geography: "Interior Victoria Land continues at height of 9000 feet""Evidently vast continental plateau". Glacier Valley affords magnificent scenery and natural geological section of mountains". Explored valley in detail discovering sand stone and plant remains." The official account of the expedition was not published in book form until 1905 (The Voyage of the "˜Discovery). Scientifically speaking, this first expedition was the more important of Scott's two expeditions, although historically it is overshadowed by his tragic second journey, during which he perished. Perforation in upper left corner of each leaf, small loss to corner and edge of page 3, not affecting text; evidence of prior mounts on verso of each leaf. An exceptional document in excellent condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Cho senshu [or] Cho senrui [trans.: One Thousand Butterflies]

      25 double-page stunning plates of colored woodcuts depicting butterflies. Two vols. in accordion-style (orihon). 8vo, orig. blue silk over boards (a little worn), orig. block-printed title label on upper cover. Kyoto: Yamada Unsodo, 1904. First edition of this beautifully illustrated work on butterflies; the handsome woodblock double-page plates, several of which are heightened in gold or silver, depict butterflies in a variety of styles. "Kamisaka Sekka was a genius; effortlessly, prodigiously, boundlessly imaginative; tirelessly inventive, spontaneous, and free. In One Thousand Butterflies (Cho senrui, 1903 [the book is commonly misdated; it was published in 1904]) he took a single subject and drew dozens of pictures, each in a different style. There was nothing academic about his approach. Each drawing was fresh and new; many were arresting and some mirrored new developments in European art… "Sekka loved design. He began to paint under Suzuki Zuigai when he was sixteen and studied textiles in his early twenties…He was doubly fortunate that Yamada Naosaburo, the most ambitious, original and enterprising publisher of the early twentieth century, recognized Sekka's genius and gave him the freedom and support he needed to bring into the world his protean vision of art fused with life."-Keyes, Ehon. The Artist and the Book in Japan (NYPL), p. 240. ? Hillier, The Art of the Japanese Book, p. 976-"A colour-printed book of elaborate decor based on the forms of butterflies. All the designs are 'patterned,' but some conform to the actual shape and markings of believable butterflies, though there is certainly no intention to be entomologically accurate; but in some, the artist simply used the insects as a theme for variations, distorting and manipulating the butterfly shape until it is barely recognizable, often achieving the kind of art nouveau that we associate with some Secession jewellery…Sekka is especially inventive when he allows swarms of butterflies to float over the page, achieving colourful geometric diagrams, or, in one, amorphous silver shapes outlined in brown, green and yellow, as evocative and irrational as abstracts by Arp.".

      Imp. de Pedro Toll. - Barcelona. 1904-1905-1906. Holandesa con puntas. 21X16. 194p+196p. Se editada en Barcelona. Publicación fundada en el mes de julio de 1903 por Manuel Navarro Murillo, quien también fue su director. A su aparición figuraban como redactor jefe, Eduardo Estapá; como administradora, Matilde Navarro, y como Secretario, Agustín Brunet. Periodicidad: mensual. Tamaño: 21 cm. Número de páginas: 18. Se imprimía en la Imp. de Pedro Toll, C/ Valencia, nº 200 (interior) Barcelona. La redacción estuvo en C/ Urgell, nº 113, principal, 1º. Los tomos anuales comenzaban en el mes de julio de cada año y se cerraban con el número de junio del año siguiente. La numeración de los ejemplares se reiniciaba siempre con el primer número de cada anualidad. Entre sus colaboradores habituales figuraban Matilde – que ejercía también como administradora – y María Navarro Alonso, hijas ambas de Manuel Navarro Murillo y de otra destacada figura del Espiritismo español, Matilde Alonso Gainza, notable médium que diera a la luz obras tan importantes como "Leila o Pruebas de un Espíritu" y "Lazos Invisibles". Junto a los artículos de fondo y noticias de actualidad sobre Espiritismo, la revista recogía en sus páginas abundante información sobre el movimiento pacifista, del que su director era destacado representante, habiendo publicado numerosos trabajos al respecto. A este posicionamiento llegó Manuel Navarro Murillo desde su militancia espiritista, pues ambos ideales no son sólo compatibles, sino que el primero es una consecuencia natural del segundo.

         Dracula

      Constable 1904 - Extremely scarce copy of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula', this eighth edition was the first time the original publisher Constable decided to change the earlier 'yellow cloth' binding which they originally used (on the first seven printings) and which was both inferior quality and unsophisticated (hence the reason those early states suffer so badly). It is here with the eighth printing they changed to this gothic, nouveau binding of deep blue/black cloth with gilt titles and crimson, nouveau designs, much more in keeping with the general style and theme to which Dracula by now had become associated with. This was in fact the first and last time this particular binding was used, after this printing Rider took over publication. VG, the corners are rubbed, as is the head and foot of the spine (ever so slightly) Boards are deep in colour (even the spine is unfazed which is incredibly uncommon). Gilt titles and blood red designs have faded a touch but clearly visible. Rough cut text block, first few pages front and rear are mildly foxed, pages have some toning and a few, light grubby fingerprints here and there. Pages are tightly bound and clean. Now housed in a thick, removable polyester archival sleeve. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Royal octavo, modern three-quarter red morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $7500.Fine limited private-press edition, number 123 of 1000 copies, the first production from the press founded solely for the purpose of publishing the "true" Shakespeare, handsomely bound by Bayntun-Riviere.Elizabethan scholar A.H. Bullen established the Shakespeare Head Press at Stratford-upon-Avon in 1904. His primary aim was to produce a fine and true edition of Shakespeare's works, which he completed three years later. After his death in 1927, the press was acquired by a partnership that included Oxford bookseller Basil Blackwell. Blackwell appointed one of England's most distinguished typographers Bernard Newdigate, and under his direction the press became an important influence on the quality of book arts during the first half of the 20th century. Editorially, from Alexander Pope to Robert Bridges, excuses had been made for "those rough edges of Shakespeare which didn't fit the mould their minds made, of the artist in flawless taste" (Colin Franklin). Bullen attempted to print the text that Shakespeare wrote, even if parts might be considered risqué. With photogravure frontispiece portraits in each volume and historical essay on Shakespeare portraits in Volume X. A fine copy of an altogether impressive production. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         La fée des poupées].

      Ilin Skt. Peterburg 1904 - Complete set of twelve postcards (14.3 x 9.1 cm) printed in colours after Bakst, most heightened with gilt, [4]pp. list of postcards in Russian and French, cards 1, 6, 11 and 12 lighter, the others more brown, as usual. Bakst's masterpiece, according to fellow artist and art historian Alexandre Benois. During the first half of his career, Bakst (1866-1924) mostly painted landscapes, scenes and portraits. From the moment in 1899 however when he co-founded, with Serge Diaghilev, the art group Mir Isskustva [The World of Art], he progressively turned towards performing arts. He fully committed himself to his famous costume and stage designs from 1908-9 onwards, when Diaghilev created the Ballets Russes. The present work is a rare example of Bakst's early theatrical designs (1903), for the short ballet Feya kukol by Joseph Bayer, pre-dating his work for the Ballets Russes. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Photographie originale de classe de Jean Gabin (1918) / Janson de Sailly

      - GABIN Jean (1904-1976). Acteur français. Photographie originale de classe, sépia, 29 x 22 cm (avec les bords), contrecollée sur carton, (1918/1919), bords un peu fragilisés. Il s’agit de la photo de classe de Jean Gabin (premier garçon en haut à gauche) âgé de 14 ans, au lycée Janson-de-Sailly à Paris (16E arrt). Alors qu’il vient de perdre sa mère, son père décide de l’inscrire dans ce lycée après qu’il ait reçu une bourse d’étude. Jean Gabin n’y restera que deux mois, s’acclimatant assez mal au quartier et à ses camarades. Il confiera lui-même : « Je n’étais pas le genre de la maison, il paraît que j’étais trop bagarreur ! ». Il enchaînera par la suite les petits boulots (agent EDF, aide-cimentier, magasinier ) au grand désespoir de son père qui dira de son fils à cette époque : « C’est pas un poil qu’il a dans la main, c’est une perruque. Il ne fera jamais rien dans la vie ». (Jean-Jacques Jelot-Blanc, Jean Gabin Inconnu, éditions Flammarion).
