        The STAGE AND ITS STARS Past and Present (2 Vols.)

      Gebbie & Co., Philadelphia, PA, USA 1890 - 12 1/8" X 17 1/8" Two Volume Set! Hard bound in 3/4 leather and marbelized boards with title in gold on the spine. 5 Raised Bands form 6 sections on the Spine. No DJ as issued. AEG. Vol. I has [viii] + 104 pages of text and 56 full page photogravures with a full page description for each. Vol. II has [vi] + 114 pages of text and 56 full page photogravures with a full page description for each. The photogravures are printed on heavy weight stock and they are all in good bright condition. Each print has a tissue to protect it. Marbelized end pages. The covers bear the stamp of McGlinchey & Locke, Book Binders, Opp. Old South Church, Boston, so I believe this to be the original binding. "A gallery of dramatic illustration and critical biographies of distinguished English and American Actors from the time of Shakespeare till to-day." "128 Photogravure portraits and scenes from steel plates, and over 400 portraits in the text." "When the public receives the two magnificent volumes embellished with over one hundred character illustrations from steel photogravure plates, and over four hundred portraits of actors in the text, they will realize the fact that never before in connection with the literature of the Stage has such a costly and comprehensive work been attempted." Vol. I has some scuffing to the leather O/W Fine. Vol. II has a dent at the bottom of the back cover and a water stain at the upper right of the back pages of the text. None of the photogravures are affected. Packing and shipping will have to calculated after I have the buyer's zip code. Insurance will cost $11.20. The books weigh 24.5 pounds.

        IDUNA. Zeitschrift für Dichtung und Kritik. Hgg. von der Freien deutschen Gesellschaft für Literatur in Wien. Hefte 1-7, 1. u. 2. Jahrgang 1892/93.

      Lpz., Lit. Anstalt August Schulze.. Gr.-8°. Zus. 144 S.(Fortlaufende Paginierung). OBrosch. m. schwarzgedr. Tit. Einbde. rissig, tlw. fleckig u. gebräunt, im Seitensteg etw. angeschmutzt, 3 Einbandeckel tlw. od. ganz abgelöst, Vorderdeckel v. Hft.1 wasserfl., im Text papierbed. tlw. gebräunt.. Vgl. Dietzel/Hügel II; Weiermair Helmut, Lit. Zeitschr. Österreichs v. 1890-1900. Organ der gleichnamigen Vereinigung konservativer katholischer Wiener Schriftsteller. Iduna bestand zwischen 1891 und 1904 und wurde von dem österreichischen Dichter Johann Fercher von Steinwand (eig. Johann Kleinfercher, 1828-1902) als Kontrapunkt gegen Naturalismus und Jung-Wien ins Leben gerufen. Der Iduna gehörten unter anderem R. von Kralik, M. delle Grazie und R. Steiner an. Als 1896 der Schriftsteller Richard Kralik zusammen mit einigen Getreuen die Iduna verließ um sich dem Verband katholischer Schriftsteller und Schriftstellerinnen Österreichs anzuschließen, war dies eigentlich schon der Anfang vom Ende dieses Bundes. Als 1904 eine weitere Gruppe die Iduna verließ um sich der Wiener Schriftsteller-Genossenschaft anzuschließen, wurde die Iduna aufgelöst. - Sehr seltene, da nur für die Mitglieder der Gesellschaft 'Iduna' hergestellte Vereinszeitschrift und daher kaum nachzuweisen. Uns vorliegende Hefte sind vermutlich alles erschienene. "Nrn.1-6 erschienen ab 1. März 1892, Nr.7 1893; dann wurde das Blatt stillschweigend eingestellt" (vgl. dazu Weiermair S.2). Bei Dietzel/Hügel ist vermerkt "Nicht zu erlangen, 1891-93 nachgewiesen". Geleitet von dem österreichischen Schriftsteller, Journalisten und engstem Jugendfreund Rudolf Steiners in Wien Fritz Lemmermayer (1857-1932) der ein führendes Mitglied der Schriftstellervereinigung war. Mit Beiträgen von Fercher v. Steinwand, Fritz Lemmermayer, Richard Kralik, Adolf Pichler, delle Grazie, Robert Plöhn, Hans Fraungruber, Guido List u.a.

        The Origin of the Aryans: An Account of the Prehistoric Ethnology and Civilisation of Europe

      Scribner & Welford, New York 1890 - Second American edition (originally published in the US in 1889). Front hinge amateurishly restored, although not particularly offensively, corner bumped and rubbed, near very good. Front fly, and rear pastedown stamped: "Personal. Morris (Moe) Berg." Signature of "E. Berg," almost certainly that of his sister Ethel Berg, with whom he spent a substantial part of his life, and who later wrote a very scarce and desirable biography, *My Brother Morris Berg. The Real Moe.* The first half of the book is extensively underlined by Berg in pencil, with occasional notes in his hand. Berg is a remarkable figure, a lower middle class Jewish boy born in New York who was a Princeton and Columbia Law School graduate and professional baseball player who spoke seven languages (and who inspired the remark, "and he can't hit in any of them"). He appeared on the quiz show *Information, Please!* and put on a dazzling performance, belying the image of the knuckle-headed ballplayer. He used his time on a barnstorming tour of Japan to film Tokyo Harbor, the footage of which proved important to the eventual American war effort, and later was a spy for the US both during and after WWII. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which he refused (but which Ethel accepted on his behalf after his death). His baseball card is reportedly on display at CIA headquarters. His life inspired several books, among them Nicholas Dawidoff's 1995 biography *The Catcher Was a Spy: The Mysterious Life of Moe Berg*. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fixed Bayonets:

      London, William Clowes and Sons, Limited, , 1890. A Complete System of Fence for the British Magazine Rifle, explaining the Use of Point, Edges, and Butt, both in Offence and Defence; comprising a Glossary of English, French, and Italian Terms common to the Art of Fencing, with a Bibliographical List of Works affecting the Bayonet. Large octavo (243 × 169 mm) contemporary red hard-grained morocco, title gilt to spine, gilt panels to the boards, all edges gilt, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece and 23 other plates. A little rubbed at the extremities, spine slightly scuffed, contemporary gift inscription to the front free endpaper, light browning, else very good. First edition. As a youth Hutton trained in the fence under Henry Angelo Jr., and after ten years in the Army became a "pupil and friend of McTurk, Angelo's successor at the school of arms in St James's Street [devoting] himself to the practice of modern fencing with foil, sabre, and bayonet, but chiefly to the study and revival of older systems and schools … In 1890 he published Fixed Bayonets, in which he insisted that a competently wielded bayonet should beat a good swordsman, but his views of bayonet fighting were regarded in the army as too theoretical for modern practical instruction. He retorted by deploring military reliance on Italian theories of swordsmanship to the exclusion of effective French practice." (ODNB) He was the first president of the Amateur Fencing Association, and promoted the beginning of national championships for men from 1898 and for women from 1907, the official historian of the AFA considering that; "The revival of interest in, and the development of, fencing in Great Britain during the first decade of this century were undoubtedly due chiefly to his enthusiasm and untiring work." A very nice copy of an uncommon work.

      Venice, circa 1890. A catalog of 58 large albumen photographs of lace mounted to coated linen pages. The image size averages 9 x 8 inches ( 229 x 203 mm.), though there are 6 folding photographs, measuring 12 ½ x 10 inches ( 318 x 254 mm.). Folio, 13 ¼ x 9 ½ inches ( 337 x 241 mm.). Leather backed pebbled cloth with gilt text on cover; old repairs to spine and tips; light wear. Splendid examples of lace (merletti in Italian) in the form of bed and chair canopies, parasols, fans, tablecloths, bed coverings, trims, and accessories are illustrated in the catalog. Using large negatives and contact printing, the photographer presents the ornate lace segments in sharp and crisp detail. Most of the subjects are displayed flat against a dark background, though a few, such as a parasol and a fan, are shown as complete objects. The Testolini company was a large retailer of Italian textiles and lace in Venice during the late nineteenth century. Expanding into Venetian glass, in 1910 his firm absorbed the Compagnia Venezi - Murano (CVM). In 1920 Testolini merged with Pauly & Co., which is still in business.

XII) dans 'Verlaine' de Francis Carco.

First-Edition of the "Repertoire Chromatique. Solution raisonnee & pratique des problemes les plus usuels dans l'etude & l'emploi des couleurs. Vingt-Neuf Tableaux en Chromos representant 952 teintes differentes & definies groupees en plus de 600 gammes typiques". - - " .... system that can perhaps be described as the invention of the color chart." Kunihiko Sugiyama, Color Circles: Who invented color circles - - Charles Lacouture (1832-1908) " was a French botanist, Jesuit and professor of physical and natural sciences at the Ecole Saimt-Clement in Metz. While admiring the work of Michel-Eugene Chevreul (to whom the book is dedicated; see entry in chapter 4), he found it wanting in several respects and hoped to fill its gaps in his own color system. His goals were to improve on color nomenclature, established a theory from a number of fundamental facts, show typical color ranges in charts, and consider possible applications for the system. - - Lacouture's work is divided into four books and 29 colored tables. The tables are colored by chromolithography. Full colors are printed as solid surfaces, and whitened colors, as lines of different thickness on white paper. The gray scale and blackened colors are obtained by printing (or over-printing) lines of black ink at varying line width. Secondary and tertiary colors are obtained by over-printing one primary color with another at right angles or a primary color with curved lines. - - The charts in the book were printed with lines from 1/12 mm to /12 mm in width. The are best viewed from a certain distance to obtain mixture of the components. Lacouture wrote that his are the first color charts produced by this method and credits the chromolithographer M.G. Severeyns with the artistic work. - - While using a four-ink printing method, Lacouture's system is meant to be a system of color perceptions. The chromatic circle is derived from three primitive colors red R, yellow J, anbd blue B, located at the corners of an equilateral triangle. They are defined by wavelengths R = 700 nm; J = 580 nm, and B = 470 nm. The intermediate hues orange ( = 597 nm), green (VE = 526 nm), and violet (V = 400 nm) are placed on a second triangle, with always one intermediate hue interspaced, the whole system in form of a circle of flower petals , affording a general view of the hue arrangement (rose synoptique). Complementary colors as represented by the appropriate wavelengths are placed diametrically opposite in this figure. The six chromatic principal colors are toned with white (BL and black (N), .... - - Lacouture described the three primitives as equidistant, or equally estranged, from each other. He took all the other colors from which they derive; thus, "true green" is equally distant from the blue and yellow from which is derived. He defined tones as the degree of chromatic intensity of a given color. Nuances (hues in our termninolgy) describe the degree of chromatic parentage of a color. The gray scale has five grades between black and white. .... - - Lacouture viewed his color tables as representing color standards (types). For this purpose, he selected pigments resulting in colors free from any trace of the other two. Regarding tone, he stated that they must be absolutely pure (franc), not whitish, or grayish, or blackish. But he was aware that any three pigments represents only approximations of perfect primitives. .... - - Lacouture did not discover any new facts about color order. His book is a labor of love and that shows earnest striving for clarity of relationship and standardization. His figures represent a novel approach to the problem of economical atlas coloration..."
