        Fine original portrait drawing of the composer in half-profile by the Viennese artist Benedikt Dolbin (1883-1971)...

      Signed by the artist with initials and with the composer's name to upper right corner. Undated, but most probably Vienna, ca. 1920. Executed in black pencil on the blank side of a sheet of stationery carrying the letterhead of Universal Edition in Vienna. 286 x 222 mm. "[Milhaud] was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online. Dolbin (pseud. Fred Pollack, 1883-1971) was born in Vienna and educated there. Trained as an engineer, he subsequently studied musical composition with Arnold Schoenberg and became a member of the Viennese group "Die Bewegung." He commenced drawing portraits of leading artistic personalities from ca. 1917 onwards for Viennese newspapers and journals. Because of his Jewish origins, Dolbin's work was banned in Austria in 1935, at which time he emigrated to the United States....

      - Alden & Landis 699/146; Church 783; for the bindery: Du Bois, Historical essay on the art of bookbinding, 1883, p. 35. Third edition known to survive in the original Latin of a letter on the success of spreading the Gospel among the indigenous American Indians, written by Increase Mather, the second of three generations of famous Puritan ministers in Boston and rector of Harvard College, addressed to Johannes Leusden, Professor of Hebrew at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. The letter is dated from Boston, 12 July 1687. The present Utrecht edition adds letters to Leusden on the progress of spreading the Gospel among the populations in Ceylon and the East Indies, written by Herman Specht (1684; 1688), Adrianus de Mey (1690; 1692) and Franciscus Valentijn (1686). These additional letters appear here in the first edition of the original Latin known to survive.The work is bound by the Bradstreet Bindery in New York. John M. Bradstreet (1815-1863) established one of the first credit rating companies and they apparently came into bookbinding through their publishing activities, but when Henry and his siblings took over the firm "fine binding" was largely a European phenomena, William Matthews in New York being the only major American exponent. They carried out work for J.P. Morgan, the Grolier Club and other bibliophiles. In 1883, Du Bois praised their bindings higher than any others in America, noting their "solidity, strength and squareness of workmanship . Certainly none can put a varied coloured morocco coat on a book, and gild it with greater perfection in choice of ornament and splendor of gold, and with greater care, taste and success, .". He even hints that they might excel the French and English, then regarded as the best binders. Church's copy of the present edition was also bound by Bradstreet, but in green morocco.Slightly browned, but still in very good condition. The binding has been expertly and unobtrusively rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down, and the corners are scuffed, but the binding is otherwise very good.

As the official portraitist of the Metropolitan Opera from 1908 until 1932, he became the foremost portrayer of Golden Age opera singers. While photographing opera stars for the Metropolitan, he maintained a portrait studio frequented by many of the most significant performing artists of the day. "In certain respects, he had the most difficult task of any theatrical photographer of the early 20th century for he was constantly having to temper the hyperbolically dramatic poses that opera singers employed on the vast stages of Europe and America so that they didn't appear ludicrous shot from a twelve-foot distance. His subjects were among the least tractable persons to instruction in the performing arts, and were generally infected with decorative sensibilities. That Mishkin was able to satisfy his sitters and adjust to the increasingly less ornamental aesthetic of modern photography was a testament to his tact and flexibility." Broadway Photographs online.

      Indianapolis: George C. Hitt & Co., 1883. Small octavo. Original printed parchment-like wrappers, printed in red. Faintest dust soiling to the wrappers, minute fleck on lower wrapper, but a fine copy. Enclosed in a half morocco slipcase and chemise (spine a bit darkened). First edition of the author's first book, collecting a number of "Hoosier" dialect poems which had seen earlier publication under the pseudonym in THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL. The first edition consisted of one thousand copies, with the cost of publication split between Riley and Hitt, and the edition sold out in three months. Several facsimiles were produced in later years, the most faithful in 1909; this copy includes the features determinative of the proper first: a) title leaf a cancel, b) 'W' in 'William' present on p.41 in the first line of the 4th stanza, and c) horizontal chain lines uniformly spaced at 1" (scant). Seybolt did not have a copy of this regional rarity in his collection of first books, and the first 7 Gables First Books catalogue could muster only a rebound copy. BAL 16525. RUSSO, pp.3-6.

        Des hallucinations bilatérales de caractère différent suivant le côté affecté

      19 pp. Extrait des Archives de neurologie (n°18), s.d (1883), in-8, 19 pp, broché, couverture d'attente, Rare publication de cette conférence du docteur Valentin Magnan, tenue en 1883 à l'Asile Sainte-Anne, dans laquelle ilétablit le caractère bilatéral ou unilatéral des hallucinations et explique que le délire se modifie en fonction de l'hémisphère émetteur. Magnan observe des individus ayant des hallucinations bilatérales, mais de caractère différent, notamment au niveau de l'ouïe : l'oreille droite, par exemple, entend des choses agréables, tandis que l'oreille gauche ne perçoit que des injures. Il semble, en effet, que dans le plus grand nombre des cas ces hallucinations aient un caractère pénible à gauche et agréable à droite. Cependant, un de ses malades n'entendait par l'o­reille droite que des injures, tandis qu'il avait par l'oreille gauche des hallucinations gaies d'un carac­tère ambitieux. Dans son observation clinique, Magnan lie étroitement ce type d'hallucination bilatérale de l'ouïe à l'indépendance des deux hémisphères cérébraux. En conséquence de quoi, il place le siège de ces hallucinations dans les centres sensoriels de l'écorce cérébrale. Ex-libris du docteur Carrier. Intérieur frais.

L'histoire de la mère maquerelle Gourdan serait plaisante à conter ici dans son entier. Son établissement de plaisir voir le jour en 1774 à l’angle de la rue Saint-Sauveur et de la rue des Deux-Portes. Marguerite Gourdan édicte, à l’usage de ses pensionnaires, un règlement en vingt articles, agrémenté, en complément, d’Instructions pour une jeune demoiselle qui veut faire fortune avec les charmes qu’elle a reçus de la nature. En dehors de la direction de son établissement et de l’arrangement des parties fines soit chez elle, soit dans les petites maisons de la noblesse, elle procure en appareilleuse consommée des femmes aux hommes, des jeunes gens aux « sodomistes » et des « succubes » (jouant le rôle passif dans les ébats amoureux féminins) aux « tribades ». Les lesbiennes les plus renommées se recommandent toutes auprès de Marguerite Gourdan pour avoir de jeunes et jolies filles, expérimentées ou débutantes.

        Rivers of Life. Or Sources and Streams of the Faiths of Man in all Lands; Showing the Evolution of Faiths from the Rudest Symbols to the Latest Spiritual Developments (Three volume set including separate folding chart)

      London: Bernard Quaritch/Subscriber's Copy, 1883. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Volume one title page shows Quaritch, 1883. Volume two title page states:  "Subscriber's Copy", 1883. The ultra rare subscriber's edition is considered to be the actual first issue so this is technically a mismatched set, but has probably been mismatched since day one since the paper toning and the overall exceptional quality of these volumes match in every other way. First Edition. Three Volumes (plus chart). Hardcover. Quarto. The two large text volumes are beautifully bound in half morocco over gilt edged marbled boards (by Bennett, New York). Top edge gilt. Marbled endpapers. [xli], 565, [vi], 659 pages, with index and errata list at end of each volume. Illustrated with 17 full page plates on card stock (all present), and 339 text drawings. 2 colored maps are present (a second century map of the world showing movement of early races and faiths, and a large foldout of Ancient India and adjacent areas showing early tribes, their sacred places, etc.). In addition to the text volumes is the very large, and often-missing, color Synchronological Chart of the Religions of the World representing different currents (Faith Streams) which is linen-backed and folded, housed in a separate folder inside a beveled slipcase covered in brown cloth. The chart measures 7.5 feet by 2.25 feet and is in excellent condition. The ?Explanatory Note to Chart of Rivers of Life?, originally issued as a loose sheet (again, often missing) has been neatly affixed to the back of one panel of the chart and can be perused easily without it going astray. Volume one has one tiny corner bump to rear board and there is one small closed tear to the large fold-out map of India. Two plates in volume two have light moisture stains to top of plate but are in the margins. Otherwise THIS SET IS IN FINE CONDITION with no markings of any kind. It is a very well preserved set and one is not likely to find a nicer or more attractive copy. A scarce title and exceptionally rare in this condition - even more so with the large chart included. This is Forlong?s massive work of comparative religion and the natural evolution of existing faiths, with its uninhibited sexual interpretation of religious rites and ceremonies throughout history. Forlong puts forth the idea that all major religions can be traced back to six main streams of worship which go back to the beginning of mankind?s history. The 6 streams are mainly solar and phallic in nature (Mr. Crowley, please pick up a white paging phone). Volume one details each stream: Tree Worship, Phallic Worship, Serpent Worship, Fire Worship, Sun Worship, and Ancestor Worship. Crowley did include this work in his list of "Books for Serious Study" (Curriculum of the A.A.) calling it "an invaluable text-book of old systems of initiation?. Volume two continues with chapters on the early faiths of Western Asia (being Chaldea and Assyria), faiths of Western Aborigines in Europe and adjacent countries, and faiths of Eastern Aborigines (Non-Aryan and Semitic).  The chief object of the accompanying Chart is to show the gradual evolution from rude material and elemental symbolisms to abstract and spiritualized conceptions. This is accomplished by streams of colors, one each for the six forms of worship mentioned above. It is interesting to see how many of the streams converge and travel together at certain periods throughout history, allowing one to detect patterns in relation to forms of worship, locales, and time periods. Along each stream are the names of gods and attributes, as they became prominent, etc. Two chronological columns (beginning in 10,000 B.C.) with text are present on either side of the chart. The left side shows principal characters, cities, and leading religious events (historical and mythical) throughout history. The column on the right shows dates of religious writings, temple constructions, dogmas, languages and other principal matters. The whole thing is like a board game of the gods. Its remarkable in every way. The amount of esoteric material that Forlong has presented here is staggering. And the sexual nature of it all goes beyond the work of Payne-Knight, and Jennings. An incredible amount of research went into the work. And though much of his research was gathered from his own travels and fieldwork (especially during his lengthy stay in India), he additionally relied on numerous authorities in his research. A long list of works cited (separated by subject) are at the beginning of volume one.
