        Circa 1890 - 1930s Collection of Photographs, Correspondence and Paper Ephemera of Dr. Adolf Marcuse & Family, German Military Physician During World War One (with) a Letter Referrng to Albert Einstein

      Germany: Not Published, 1890. Photographs: All loose images, with about 65 photos directly relating to World War I, with about 8 student cadet photographs, some dedicated to Adolf Marcuse and including a couple of men with faces bearing bandages on their faces, probably from dueling; images of nurses, Augusta hospital 1914, doctors, nursing staff and guards at army hospital, interior views of wounded men on wards, real-photo postcard views of bombed areas in Lille and other areas, snapshot of wounded men in field trench being examined; some regiments, places, dates recorded on backs; at least one image of Allied soldiers being marched or guarded by German troops, possibly British & French men. With a group of 1/2 dozen of women violinists, some with several copies, we assume these are Eva Katschinsky (who married Marcuse) and one photo postcard signed from another female violinist to her, with a couple of men with stringed instruments. With a photo-postcard signed from a gentleman expressing thanks to A. Marcuse; also about 200 pieces of family + friends portraiture, school photos including group images and others inscribed to Marcuse, a few travel and formal occasion images, dinners, graduations, fun amateur dramatic events in costume, parties, architecture, perhaps of family homes, a few group images of women, at a hospital or clinic and one with Dr. Marcuse also, a variety of formats for these, from posed studio portraiture done in Germany circa 1890 - 1935 to snapshots, real photo postcards and more, sizes vary; many of these are identified or dated or have photographic studio imprint; and a much later souvenir photo from the Georgian Bay Line with A.Marcuse & family on board one of the line's Great Lakes cruise ships, circa 1950s. Correspondence: 1914 letter Berlin, from Fridhof Frankel; 1915 letter from a friend in the Corps Zastrow; a 1917 postcard to Eva with the stamp of musical composer Professor Issay Barmas and 1917 short letter on mourning paper also from Barmas, a few postcards to Marcuse until circa 1931 Berlin and a few other personal notes from friends. Also a 4-page typed letter dated January 1939 Amsterdam from 'Gunther' presumably a nephew, to "Lieber Onkel Adolf" regarding his attempts to leave Holland and emigrate to the United States, with much hope placed on his friendship with a Mrs. Perleberg and Mrs. Lumley - who, with their connections and with his own to Albert Einstein he may somehow acquire a scholarship or position at Princeton - with alternative plans possibly to England - Einstein & his influence in this case mentioned several times, his name being regarded as particularly influential. Miscellaneous: a four-sided camp newspaper, "Der Stacheldraht Weihnachtszeitung fur das Feldlazarett 397" printed on pale green paper, with the pencil name of Marcuse, printed Frankreich, OU. im Jahre des Heils 1917 with poetry, information on the doctors at this field-hospital, camp entertainments - the military hospital depicted in this collections' photos; 4 printed amateur or student theater and music broadsides, two of which list the polar explore Fritz Loewe as one of the participants in 1910 and 1912, the other sheets for musical performances. Also listing Fritz Loewe is a large broadside sheet 12 3/4" x 16 1/2" giving the individual subjects for the students of the Provinzialschulkollegium Berlin summer studies program; a (9) page typed and side-sewn paper, "Richard Wagner und seine Meister-Sanger" with corrections and a handwritten commentary at the final page; several 'zeugnis-heft' or school report cards for Adolf Marcuse for the years 1894 - 1903, with 4 similar loose broadside-style printed zeugnis report sheets from the Stadtische hohere Schule zu Montjoie 1903-1904, and 25 additional zuegnis 1904 - 1912 for A. Marcuse from the Konigliches Joachimsthalsches Gymnasium, also broadside style sheets, these reporting on his work in the schools; several dozen pages of manuscript poetry, all signed by Adolf Marcuse, mostly dated 1910 - 1927; a booklet with the name of Adolf Marcuse on the cover, with theater and drama-related writings in manuscript, about 30 pages; a small booklet, perhaps done for school drama class with the name of Eva Katschinsky on the cover, with a (16) page play written in pencil; a musical manuscript, lyrics & staff notation, 5 bars initialed A.M. in 1913; several newspaper clippings referring to and publicizing musical performances, with the commonality of the musical performance career of Eva Katschinsky, violinist; group of about 30 unused bookplates of Adolf Marcuse, with a owl-globe-open book in a circle, name with a stylized nouveau floral surround, printed black on cream paper stock and a billing notice form the Privat-Klinik Bethesda Berlin to Hrrn Dr. Med. A. Marchuse for 'wife & child' evidently for a hospital stay in 1913, perhaps for a childbirth; several postally-used postcards or otherwise identified, mostly scenic, travel related German locations, a pamphlet "In Memoriam S.G. Rosenbaum" with a photograph of S.G. & Francis F. Rosenbaum Jr. in 1928; in very good condition. NOTE: Adolf Marcuse - this is not the astronomer of the same name, who died in 1930 - although there is a certain resemblance, perhaps they were related; it appears from some of the later snapshot photographs that some of the family members may have served in the American military in WWII, some parts of the family may have come to the U.S. to settle; others who were friends of the family, as Fritz Loewe, were certainly Jewish and either fled or were killed in Germany. Condition: Some wear & rubbing, soil; paper ephemera usually with old fold lines, darkening; the photos and other materials in good to very good condition.. Manuscript & Photography . Not Bound. Very Good.

        Harper's Bazaar 1890. FULL YEAR BOUND VOLUME

      New York.: Harper Brothers.. VOLUME 23.. 1890.. Massive volume; three-quarter leather binding 16 x 11 inches; 1052 pp. Fifty-two lavishly illustrated issues; 32 featuring a Supplement. Of great interest are the 24 tipped-in folded patterns for clothing: women's garments, young girls' garments; dolls' costumes, etc. These are bound into the volume, and all are in very good condition. Copious illustrations of women's and young girls' clothing are featured in the newspaper; these include tennis blouses, formal evening wear, riding habits, gowns for various occasions including weddings; also shawls, hats, embroidery patterns and more. Several newspapers have short marginal tears (repaired with archival tape); one cover was soiled in the mail. Abrasions to exterior: spine edges and corners of covers; overall very good condition. ITEM WEIGHS APPROXIMATELY 20 LBS: WE WILL QUOTE EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGES. The rear page of each issue of the newspaper features captioned cartoon images (6 x 4.5 inches or so); many of these depict African-American characters whose verbal exchanges are rendered in dialect. There are other cartoons featuring Chinese characters. The newspaper's extensive single and double-page illustrations focus on costumes of the day, but others reflect wider-ranging interests. These include a bird's eye view of Rome, bicycling, the deck of an Iron Clad (ship) photographed from the mast of another vessel, art work by various artists including Alice Barber (Stevens) whose Harmony in a Virginia Cabin depicts an African-American family, a full-page illustration depicting a female photographer, illustrations of theatrical interest, etc. Loads of full-page illustrations of British royalty and English historical subjects make clear the Anglophile leanings of the publisher and no doubt the bulk of the newspaper's readers. A small mailing label on the front cover of the newspaper identifies the subscriber to the publication as Jacob Kamm of Portland Oregon. Kamm, a prominent businessman in 19th century Portland, founded the Oregon Steam Navigation Company and was heavily involved in real estate in the city. His estate was valued at over four million dollars at the time of his death in 1912. The volume is in very good condition, tight and attractive in its binding. Uncommon in such good condition. .

        Mädchen vor dem Anna-Altar in der Stadtpfarrkirche in Rattenberg in Tirol.

      - Öl auf Holz, rechts unten signiert „O. Piltz" sowie zusätzlich auf der rechten Grabplatte „O. Piltz München". 54,5:36 cm. Gerahmt. Vermutlich um 1890 auf einer Studienreise nach Tirol entstanden. Literatur: Wohl identisch mit Bötticher Nr. 63 „Vor dem Hochaltar", aus der Sammlung Adolf von Liebermann, versteigert in Berlin, bei J.M. Heberle, 12.03.1894. Vergleichsliteratur: C. Bantzer: Hessen in der deutschen Malerei. Hrsg. Von A. Baeumerth. Marburg, Hitzeroth, 1993, S. 85 f., Abb. des Gemäldes „Taufe in der Kirche zu Cappel". Piltz war Schüler von Graf St. von Kalckreuth (1820-1894) an der Kunstschule in Weimar. 1870 hielt er sich in Willingshausen auf, mehrere Aufenthalte in Kleinsassen/Rhön sind ebenso belegt. 1882 erhielt er dort den Professorentitel. 1889 siedelte er nach München über, wo er 1893 der Münchner Sezession und dann der Künstlergenossenschaft beitrat. Piltz malte vornehmlich ländliche Genreszenen und Kinder und schilderte Leben und Bräuche bei Jung und Alt auf dem Lande, in Dörfern und kleinen Städten, dem Treiben der Jugend besondere Teilnahme widmend. Sein Bild „Turnunterricht auf dem Lande", 1872, wurde auf den Weltausstellungen in Berlin und Paris gezeigt. Der dargestellte Anna-Altar befindet sich im Knappenschiff (1718) der Pfarrkirche zum Hl. Virgil (erbaut 1473-1507 als zweischiffige Anlage) in der „Nothburgastadt" Rattenberg in Tirol.

        [Persian musicians, a painter, a pipe smoker, a gymnast, a bread baker and others].[Paris?], [ca. 1890]. Imperial 4to (32 x 26.5 cm). 27 (of 28) costume drawings in coloured gouaches and gold on paper (12.5 x 10 to 22 x 17.5 cm), mounted in an album. French gold- and blind-blocked red textured cloth (ca. 1890), with a count's crown above textura initials "F.F." on the front board, with the stationer's ticket of Édouard Hautecoeur in Paris.

      An album made in Paris for a count ca. 1890, containing 27 of an original 28 costume drawings in coloured gouaches, several highlighted with gold, on paper. Although there are some variations in size and style they appear to form a fairly consistent series and may have been drawn by a single artist. They appear to be Persian/Iranian rather than Indian or Turkish, but could also be mixed. Most show women, including musicians (playing two different kinds of long-necked lute and a drum) , a painter at her easel, a woman spinning thread, a dancer, a woman doing a cartwheel or hand-stand, two holding or serving drinks. A drawing has been removed from one page but the album otherwise appears to be complete. All drawings are mounted on or loosely inserted before the front and back of the first 10 leaves, with the rest of the album unused. A few drawings show faint offsets from the drawing(s) on the facing page and a few show minor smudges, or faint marginal stains from the adhesive used to mount them. The binding is slightly worn but also very good. A lovely series of Persian/Iranian costume drawings.

        Hedda Gabler [in Norwegian]

      Copenhagen: Gyldendalske Boghandels Forlag, 1890. First edition. [iv], 236 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original gray cloth, blocked in gilt, a.e.g. A fine copy. Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) grew up in miserable poverty in Norway. He managed to make a living as a free-lance journalist by the time he was in his mid-twenties, finally earning money for all his efforts. From there he went on to write for the theatre, and even managed a small theatre and became director of the National Theatre in Oslo, all the while writing his plays and poetry. Hedda Gabler is "possibly his most frequently performed play in the modern theatre . . . Ibsen's influence on the whole course of modern drama may be indicated by the inclusion of his plays in the repertoire of every avant-garde theatre of his day.".

        Le Yacht. Historie de la Navigation Maritime de Plaisance

      Paris: Libraires-Imprimeries Reunies, no date but, 1890. Quarto, engraved title in colour, many steel engravings and photographic engravings throughout; in original pictorial cloth boards, all edges gilt, some wear to spine, a very good copy. An attractive copy of this richly illustrated guide to yachting, in the original printed colour boards.Paschal Grousset, born 1844 in Corsica, was a journalist, politician and author in many fields, most notably Science Fiction. Grousset had many pseudonyms, including Philippe Daryl (as here), Léopold Virey and Andre Laurie; he is best known for his collaboration with Jules Verne while working under the name Laurie. Le Yacht is one of the twenty or more works Grousset wrote under the name of Philippe Daryl, all of them non-fiction and most relating to travel and sporting. The illustrations in Le Yacht are very charming, and Grousset's discussion takes in every aspect of yachting, from building and racing, through to fashion and interior decorating, nautical clubs and routes, marking the work as a significant snapshot of the sport at the end of the nineteenth century.Grousset's political life was also interesting. His writing for the newspaper La Marseillaise had a pro-revolutionary focus and provoked Pierre Napoleon Bonaparte, deputy of Corsica and cousin of Napoleon III, to challenge him to a dual in 1870. Grousset's second, Victor Noir was killed in the dual and is buried in Père Lachaise. Grousset was later exiled in 1872 for his involvement in the Paris Commune, one of a reported 7,000 who were banished to New Caledonia. Two years later he travelled to Australia, then sought refuge in England, before returning to France during the Amnesty of 1880.The book is illustrated by various artists including L. Vallet.

        History of Greece, and of the Greek People, From the Earliest Times to the Roman Conquest (Edition De Grand Luxe, 8 Volumes, Complete)

      Estes and Lauriat / University Press, Cambridge, Boston 1890 - Edition de Grand Luxe, Limited to 250 numbered copies, of which this set is number 228. Printed on Imperial Japanese Vellum, printed at the University Press, John Wilson and Son, Cambridge. This set traces Greek history beginning with "Legendary History", ca. 2000 B.C., discussing the various Greek tribes and states, gods, heroes, and statesmen; through the Roman invasions and the Macedonian Wars. ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S): Jean Victor Duruy (1811-1894), French historian and statesman, devoted his life to education, serving as Chair in the College of Henri IV at Paris for over 25 years and introducing many reforms including secondary education for girls by lay teachers and the introduction of modern history and languages to the curriculum. He wrote many historical works, and is perhaps best known for his histories on the Greeks and Romans. The Introduction was written by John Pentland Mahaffy (1839-1919), Irish classicist and scholar, who held the Chair in Ancient History at Trinity College, Dublin from 1871, becoming Provost in 1914; while at Trinity he was acquainted with Oscar Wilde and seemed to share his wit; Wilde described Mahaffy as his "first and greatest teacher" (author info from Wikipedia). ***PROVENANCE: This set has the initials of the prior owner in gilt, surrounded by a gilt laurel wreath, on the front board: the initials are "WBH"; per a printed statement after the limitation statement, "This copy has been printed and specially bound for Wm. B. Hayden". The set was subsequently owned by William H. Berg, the president of Standard Oil of California from 1937-1940 (now Chevron Corp.); we acquired the set from his family. ***DESCRIPTION: Eight volumes, half crimson leather over marbled boards, "WBH" surrounded by laurel wreath in gilt on front board, gilt lettering and decorations to spine direct, five raised bands also with gilt decoration, top edge gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers in light blue and gold on ivory paper, printed on Imperial Japanese Vellum, tissue-guarded frontispieces in each volume, title pages in red and black, which state "Containing over Two Thousand Engravings, including numerous Maps, Plans, and Colored Plates"; pagination: Vol. I Section I, xviii, 281; Vol. I Section II, 282-582; Vol. II Section I, xviii, 302; Vol. II Section II, 303-664; Vol. III Section I, xviii, 347; Vol. III Section II, 348-662; and Vol. IV Section I, xx, 313; Vol. IV Section II, 314-598 which includes a General Index at the rear. ***CONDITION: Overall very good+, as each volume has a strong, square text block, solid hinges, straight corners with a minimum of rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; the condition issues include one volume with a split to the front board (still attached, but will need some restoration work), a few volumes having corners a bit more severely rubbed, some minor wear to the outer joints, and several of the volumes having some small loss to the head of the spines. ***POSTAGE: Please note that this is an extremely large and heavy set; the Abe standard postage you see will not cover our costs, therefore additional postage will apply. We are happy to ship both domestic and international orders at cost, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Mr Sponge's Sporting Tour; Mr Romford's Hounds; Handley Cross; Plain or Ringlets; Hawbuck Grange; Ask Mama

      London: Bradbury Agnew & Co. Hardcover. Near fine. Undated Subscribers Edition, c. 1890. Six volumes, extensively illustrated with hand-colored plates and b/w engravings in the text. Bound by Bayntun in three quarter red morocco and red cloth boards, gilt titles, raised bands, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Mild rubbing to extremities; else fine. Norman Gash writes in his DNB entry on Surtees: "His books ran counter to the currents of his age in their lack of idealism, absence of sentimentality, and almost wilful flouting of conventional moralism..Yet, paradoxically, the qualities that in his own time prevented an appreciation of his talents as a writer, preserved his books in a later age from the oblivion which befell many of his more famous contemporaries....His sharp, authentic descriptions of the hunting field have retained their popularity among fox-hunters, for whom the sanitized (and in their day immeasurably better-selling) hunting novels of George Whyte-Melville have long lost their appeal. Among a wider public his mordant observations on men, women, and manners; his entertaining array of eccentrics, rakes, and rogues; his skill in the construction of lively dialogue (a matter over which he took great pains); his happy genius for unforgettable and quotable phrases; and above all, his supreme comic masterpiece, Jorrocks, have won him successive generations of devoted followers.

        In Darkest Africa

      London, Sampson, Marston, Searle, and Rivington,, 1890. or, The Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria. 2 volumes, quarto. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark brown half morocco over vellum boards, with the title, flag of Emin Pasha and Stanley's signature to the front boards gilt copied from the original, titles to spines gilt, top edges gilt, others uncut. With titles printed in red & black, portrait frontispiece of Stanley, illustrated by various artists, 45 plates (including 6 etched plates signed in pencil by the artist G. Montbard), 4 maps (3 folding), 1 folding printed table, and 103 illustrations in the text (3 full-page). The occasional minor blemish, an excellent copy in a fine binding. First Edition, Edition de Luxe. One of 250 numbered copies signed by Stanley In February of 1887 Stanley led a party from the mouth of the Congo to rescue Emin Pasha (the German naturalist, Eduard Schnitzer) who had been appointed Governor of Equatoria by General Gordon, and had been abandoned in command of the Egyptian Army when the Mahdi overran the Sudan. Leaving a rearguard at Yambuya he crossed five hundred and forty miles of absolutely unknown country, much of it dense tropical forest. "For five months the party were hidden under this 'solemn and foodless forest', scarcely ever seeing the open sky, or a patch of clearing [until reaching the Albert Nyanza on 13 December]...where Stanley expected to find Emin and the steamers he was known to have at his disposal. The Pasha, however, was not there nor were his vessels. The governor, as it turned out, was by no means anxious to be rescued in the sense intended by his English friends. Relief, in his view, did not include being relieved of his governorship or coming away as a fugitive...for nearly three months the relief column awaited him in vain [before Stanley left to join his decimated rearguard, collect its remnants on the shores of Lake Albert in January 1889 and march to the coast]...and in the course of the journey discovered the great snow-capped range of Ruwenzori, the Mountains of the Moon, besides a new lake which he named the Albert Edward Nyanza, and a large south-western extension of Lake Victoria. On the morning of 4 December 1889 the expedition reached the ocean [but Emin Pasha had transferred himself to the German service and Stanley returned home without him]. Thus, the expedition had failed to achieve its primary object. It had, however, accomplished great things" (DNB). Translations of In Darkest Africa appeared quickly in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Dutch while sales of the English trade editions totalled a hundred and fifty thousand copies.

        Ein Hungerkünstler (A Hunger Artist)

      Berlin and Leipzig: S. Fischer Verlag. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good/Fine. FIRST PRINTING IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS. A SURREAL MEDITATION ON ASCETICISM AND ART. " 'A Hunger Artist,' the story of a circus performer whose 'act' consists of forty-day fasts committed alone behind the bars of a cage…Slowly the art of fasting falls out of fashion; forgotten, the hunger-artist dies unnoticed behind his bars…Kafka is the antic poet of everyday fear, shame and stoical yearning. The art is subversive, even playful. He deals in savage inequities that are never resented, pitiful recompenses that are tearfully cherished." -Martin Amis, The War Against Cliche "One of the most highly regarded literary and cultural journals in the German language, Die neue Rundschau, which is still published today, first appeared in 1890. In Kafka's time it was the major periodical publication of one of the leading German literary presses…it published literary works by some of the most significant authors of the time, including Herman Hesse, Thomas Mann, Rainer Maria Rilke. Kafka was a regular reader of Die neue Rundschau throughout his life." After Kafka's submission of "Die Verwandlung" ("The Metamorphosis") was rejected due to its inordinate length, "Kafka was disappointed not to be able to count himself among the authors represented by this respected journal. However he did eventually join their ranks in October 1922, when the story "Ein Hungerkünstler" ("A Hunger Artists") appeared here." -Richard T. Gray, A Franz Kafka Encyclopedia IN: Die Neue Rundschau, Vol. XXXIII, Band 2, pp. 983-992. Berlin and Leipzig: S. Fischer Verlag, October 1922, pp. 961-1056. Tall octavo, original brown paper wrappers in custom silk box. Owner's signature in pencil on front-cover. Clean text, upper hinge weak, small creasing. General contents and title page laid-in. Complete with advertisements. A fantastic work, in all senses, held by outstanding wrappers.
