Black cloth titled in gilt and stamped in blind. One passage marketed in pencil in the text, else about fine. Inscribed by H. Albert Seiffert, the Church Historian, in 1969 to the director of the Rutgers' Public Relations Department.

Hartranft, pastor of this church 1866-1875, and the possibility of his being 'the father of American football... I particularly refer you to... page forty-eight. This is part of his, Mr. Hartranft's, address... when he returned here... in 1893. He said... How patiently you bore with my athletic proclivities, for I confess that... A KICK AT THE FOOT-BALL ON YONDER SEMINARY HILL, has sometimes a greater fascination for me than to enter the pulpit...' ". Hartranft did indeed form the Rutgers' College football team and arranged for them to play against Princeton in an attempt to exact revenge for a 40-2 drubbing that Rutgers had suffered from Princeton in baseball. The game, played on November 6, 1869, was the first college football game.

Couvertures conservées, souvent illustrées et différentes selon les séries, avec notamment une couverture composée par Louis Leynia de la Jarrige à partir du numéro 39 (1898) jusqu'au n°74 (1901). Format de la revue renouvelé et réduit à partir du n°108 avec illustrations en hors-texte sur papier coucher. La plupart des suppléments en feuille volante qui accompagnaient certains numéros des premières séries sont absents. De plus, plusieurs particularités et défauts sont a signaler, notamment concernant les premières années : Les revues des premières années (jusqu'à 1902) ont été reliées à la suite, non par numéro, mais par rubrique, rendant la lecture par numéro compliquée. Ainsi le premier volume commence par la rubrique "Recueil Artistique et Littéraire de Lemouzi" qui n'apparait qu'à partir du numéro 1 de la deuxième série (troisième année) de Lemouzi.

MIRO Joan (1893 - 1983), peintre espagnol Lettre autographe signée à Elisa BRETON, veuve d'André BRETON. 7 février 1968 ; 2 pages in-4° sur papier en-tête avec enveloppe. Belle lettre où il est question de l'admiration du peintre pour André Breton et de l'organisation d'une rétrospective de son œuvre à la Fondation Maeght : «Depuis très longtemps que je n'ai pas eu le plaisir de vous rencontrer, bien avant que mon de plus en plus admiré et cher André soit parti. Pris dans le tourbillon du travail mes séjours à Paris se passent toujours en coup de foudre. C'est avec joie que à mon prochain voyage je me permettrai de vous faire signe. Vous êtes sans doute au courant que Jacques Dupin organise, à l'occasion de mon prochain 75ième anniversaire, une grande exposition de mes œuvres qui doit s'inaugurer en juillet à la Fondation Maeght, de Saint-Paul de Vence. Cette exposition suivra plus tard à Barcelone, ma ville natale, où je n'ai exposé que depuis 50 ans. J'ai un très grand espoir sur l'avenir de la Catalogne, le dynamisme des nouvelles générations peut nous donner des surprises, comme André le constata lui-même lorsqu'il fit, il y a des années, une magnifique conférence à Barcelone. J'aimerais beaucoup et vous en serais reconnaissant, si vous pouviez nous prêter pour ces deux expositions « Constellation » - Danseuse Espagnole » (1928) - et « L'Objet du Couchant » Ce sont des pièces d'une importance capitale dans mon oeuvre, et en même temps comme un hommage à la clairvoyance d'André Breton.

He (O?Neill) has a great advantage over ordinary mythographers - one given him by the class of myths he has chosen to investigate - to wit, cosmic and cosmogonic ones.

Je compte bien comme je l’ai dit que tu viendras une fois à Rouen avec la petite, et Blanche (la fille d’Alice) aussi ce sera quand je serai un peu avancé dans mon travail et aussi quand il y aura un peu plus de végétation pour voir le Jardin des Plantes. J’écris de suite à mon frère. Il est très gentil, il y a moins de gène avec les siens qu’avec des étrangers, il devrait cependant comprendre, que j’ai besoin d’être tranquille. Je t’embrasse comme je t’aime Claude Monet. Votre venue quand même me dérouterait en ce moment car j’ai absolument besoin de toute ma volonté, de toutes mes forces pour me tirer de cette grande difficulté ; ou bien alors il me faut être ici en ballade et rentrer dans 8 jours. Ces tiraillements m’exaspèrent déjà. P.s. je ne comprends pas le silence de Jean (le fils de Claude Monet), si ce n’est qu’il a pensé à m’éviter un dérangement, ce qui doit l’excuser, du reste je sens que si cela se renouvelle je renoncerai à tout travail ici.

Peter B. Jones
Condition: Like New. Hans Scharoun (1893-1972) first achieved international recognition in 1927 with his controversial house for the Stuttgart Weissenhofsiedlung. His experiments with free planning and dynamic interior space continued in his native Germany through the difficult wartime years, from which he emerged with renewed energy and a consolidated architectural philosophy. As an important exponent of Organic Architecture, Scahroun developed a radical new kind of architectural space, and his disdain for imposed form and emphasis on open-minded discovery have proved increasingly influential among a younger generation of architects. Peter Blundell Jones's exhaustive study provides a comprehensive overview of Scharoun's life and work and explores his theoretical stance in relation to contemporaries such as Hugo Haring, Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier. Generously illustrated throughout with plans and drawings, and specially commissioned photographs by Dennis Gilbert, this book presents a timely re-evaluation of Scharoun's unique contribution to architectural theory and design.

1893. DAPHNIS AND CHLOE - BOIS de CHARLES RICKETTS à chaque page - SUPERBE ILLUSTRATION ET TYPOGRAPHIE PRÉRAPHAÉLITE - tirage limité à 210 exemplaires - in-4, cartonnage d'éditeur - BALLANTYNE PRESS, LONDRES1893 - BEL EXEMPLAIRE DE CE MAGNIFIQUE OUVRAGE Daphnis and Chloe is a relatively large book - measuring 29 by 22 cm. It was issued by Elkin Mathews and John Lane at the Bodley Head in 210 copies, all bound in plain green cloth. The book belongs to the early works of the Vale Artists, as they were called in several portraits of them in The Sketch (1895): Ricketts, Shannon, Lucien Pissarro and Reginald Savage. The name referred to Ricketts's and Shannon's house and studios in The Vale, and would become the name of their private press as well: The Vale Press. The cover for Daphnis and Chloetestifies of their wish to publish the book themselves, and mentions 'The Vale' on the spine. While the artists were still working on the engravings, John Lane of The Bodley Head agreed to take the risk of publication, and paid for the costs of printing and binding.

Pierre: Pierre Journal, printers, 1893. Good.. 16pp. Original light red printed wrappers, stapled. Lightly creased and soiled, several small chips and tears. First and last page stained pink from wrappers. Rare promotional work for Hughes County, South Dakota, located (as indicated in the title) in the center of the state, and including the capital of Pierre. The work includes the usual information about local agriculture and industry, as well as sections detailing each town -- Pierre, Blunt, Canning, and Harold. For a promotional work, it is unusually frank and honest about the living situation in the area. A section headed "Who Should Come?" exhorts the reader to emigrate only if industrious and willing to put up with some hardships at the moment: "No person is advised to come and settle here who is not willing to put up with some privations, or who expects to live and grow wealthy by slothful or indolent habits. This is a climate that instills energy and industry in a man, and no one is wanted here who is not capable of doing his part in the great work of civilization." This work sold for $75 in the Streeter Sale in 1968. We locate fewer than ten copies in OCLC. Streeter Sale 2086.

BLAKE, William ] Edwin John Ellis and William Butler Yeats.

Vol. I: xvi, 420, b&w fold-out; Vol. II: viii, 436, b&w fold-out; Vol. III: x,100, ii, approx. 300 + reproductions from Blake's illuminated volumes, 176pp. Bright green cloth, Blake's "Reunion of the Soul and Body" elaborately reproduced in gilt on front boards covers, gilt titling and illustration to spines, B&w frontis portraits in each volume, top edge gilt. One of 500 sets of the regular paper issue (there were also 150 large paper copies, although these did not have the magnificent gilt bindings). A ground breaking set, in which Ellis and Yeats showcased the extraordinary versatility and thought of Blake, including a number of apparently previously unpublished works in the selection. Yeats, who at the time of writing was deeply immersed in his own mystical adventure (he joined the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in 1890) was apparently largely responsible for writing the sections dealings with the symbolism and mysticism in Blake's work. Originally in a private library, with the owner's name stamp on the first blank of each volume, and small darkened spots at the bottom of each of the spines where he apparently had his own shelf numbers. No other marks, other than pencilling (see further below). A well-used set - all 3 volumes are a bit worn and rubbed at all extremities, a little shaken, cloth a little darkened with minor marks from handling, some bumps and chafing to corners and spine ends, chafing to spine edges, spines darkened and a few tiny tears at spine ends.

Wright, Virgil M.; Smith, Aurelius, editor
Indianapolis: Frank H. Smith, Publisher, 1893. 398pp. plus [2]pp. of advertisements. Publisher's brown cloth, gilt spine title. Gilt faded on the spine, cloth very lightly worn. Front hinge loosening slightly, staples exposed between final page and advertisements. Trimmed advertisements for the book adhered to front pastedown. Very good. Presentation copy, inscribed in pencil on front free endpaper: "To Mr. E C Shields with compliments of The Editor." This scarce volume by Virgil Wright is a quasi- Bildungsroman of sorts, chronicling his life from his modest Kentucky childhood to his rising success as a "drummer," or traveling salesman. While his travels bring him past (and through) several saloons and gambling halls, he nevertheless "believes in religion, morality, honesty, industry, friendship and sociability, and you will find an abundance of these in his writings" (Editor's Preface). Wright also takes time to visit local spots of historic appeal and natural beauty, including Brigham Young's grave and the recently-created national parks of Yellowstone and Yosemite. OCLC records only three copies, at the Indiana Historical Society, Indiana State Library, and the University of Tennessee. OCLC 21362072.

WOLF, Hugo 1860-1903
On a postal card. Dated Vienna, October 20, 1893. In black ink. In German (with translation). Wolf writes to conductor Siegfried Ochs suggesting Gesang Margits from Das Fest aus Solhaug (1891) for his concert. "It just occurred to me that you could take Margit's Song from the Festival at Solhaug into the program. If you like the piece and think it is effective, you'd have a soprano piece. Of course, I'd be happy if you could include another one of the songs, one of the ones that I suggested in my last letter..." Slightly worn and browned. Wolf experienced a great deal during his turbulent life, but was lucky to have a number of supportive friends and colleagues that helped him as much as they were able. In the 1890s, Wolf was coming down from a high point in his career with the success of his Mörike-Lieder and Eichendorff-Lieder. One of his advocates at the time was the conductor Siegfried Ochs (1858-1929), director of the Berlin Philharmonic Choir. In Ochs, "... Wolf found a kindred spirit. Ochs, the greatest choral conductor of the time, was also an extremely entertaining and witty companion, and Wolf much enjoyed his gift of musical parody, even when he found himself the victim of it." Walker: Hugo Wolf, p. 307. Ochs was arranging a concert in Berlin to feature Wolf's orchestral arrangements of his Elfenlied (arr. 1891) and Der Feuerreiter (arr. 1892). In the present letter, Wolf suggests the Gesang (or Ballade) Margits from his incidental music for Ibsen's Das Fest aus Solhaug. Ochs apparently did like the piece as it was included on the January 1894 concert. Although t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lewis Carroll
ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND This sale is for an original 1893 FIRST EDITION of "THROUGH THE LOOKING­GLASS" by Lewis Carroll. YOU'LL LOVE THIS BOOK!!! It is filled with 50 ILLUSTRATIONS!!! by the original "Alice" artist, Sir JOHN TENNIEL. It also includes a beautiful FULL­COLOR FRONTIS and four additional Black and White CHROMOLITHOGRAPHS!!! This book is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. There are many mirror themes in the story, including opposites, time running backwards, and so on. Whereas the first book has a deck of cards as its theme, this book is loosely based on a game of chess, played on a giant chessboard with fields for squares. Alice ponders what the world is like on the other side of a mirror, and to her surprise, is able to pass through to experience the alternate world. She discovers a book with looking­glass poetry, "Jabberwocky," which she can read only by holding it up to a mirror. Upon leaving the house, she enters a garden, where the flowers speak to her and mistake her for a flower. There, Alice also meets the Red Queen, who offers a throne to Alice if she just moves to the eighth rank in a chess match. Alice is placed as the White Queen's pawn, and begins the game by taking a train to the fourth rank, since pawns in chess can move two spaces on the first move. She then meets Tweedledum and Tweedledee, of whom she knows from the famous nursery rhyme. After reciting to her the long poem, "The Walrus and the Carpenter," the two proceed to act out the events of their own poem. Alice continues on to meet the White Queen, who is very absent … [Click Below for Full Description]
