         Eigenh. Widmung mit U.

      Ambach, 29. VIII. 1894. - 1 S. 8vo. "Die Empfindungen und Gedanken der Mütter wirken auf den Embryo; so wirkt die ganze Natur auf uns Lebende und wir nennen es Musik und gestalten damit". - Nach ersten Anfängen unter der Leitung seines Vaters Joseph studierte Gabriel von Max in Prag, Wien und bei Karl von Piloty in München, wo er von 1879 bis 1883 die Professur für Historienmalerei an der dortigen Akademie innehatte. "[V]om Publikum stark beachtet", wurde Max vor allem wegen seiner "Vorliebe für einen melancholisch-träumerischen Frauentypus, den er in allen möglichen psychologisch interessanten Situationen und ekstatisch-visionären Zuständen schildert, dabei oft die Grenze des Pathologischen streifend" (Thieme/Becker XXIV, 288).

      With 9 original lithographs by Maximilen Luce, one of 10 numbered copies on vergé de Hollande and justified by the illustrator, the tirage de tête.This copy retains its suite on Japon ancien paper. Three miniscule lacks to edges of upper cover. These are portraits of friends in prison, of which three are of the "eminence grise of symbolism," the anarchist journalist and art critic Félix Fénéon. Maximilien Luce (1858-1941) was himself imprisoned at Mazas. The former engraver never stopped vigorously asserting his Socialistic ideas in his work, as well as his sympathy for the anarchist movement. A good and rare copy.% L'Estampe originale Paris s.d.

         Le Morte D'Arthur

      London: J. M. Dent, 1893 - 1894. One of just 300 copies of the superior issue on Dutch hand-made paper, complete in three volumes. Bound in early three quarter black morocco over marbled boards. Five raised bands on the spines, gilt top-edges, marbled end-papers; bindings handsome and in excellent condition. Light to moderate foxing on the first and last couple pages, Beardsley plates toned (as usual), several leaves unopened. Malory translated and compiled the legends of Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot, Guinevere, Sir Gawain, and the Knights of the Round Table, using numerous French and English sources. His work was first published in 1485 by William Caxton, the first English printer. It proved immensely popular and became the basis for the countless retellings and adaptations throughout the next five centuries (with a few periods of silence, namely 1634 - 1816). We can think of no other collection of stories that have more fully captured the imagination and passion of the English people than the Arthurian legends. "It is the only true English epic; its matter is 'the Matter of England'. The matchless style, the humour, the magnificence, the magic that takes away the breath, combine in a masterpiece of legendary narrative. Each century has produced its own version of the Arthurian tapestry, but Malory's will never be forgotten." (Printing and the Mind of Man, 29).

         Rapports des apophyses épineuses avec la moelle les racines médullaires et les méninges (thèse de doctorat de médecine)

      Paris, L. Battaille 1894 - In-4° broché, 56 pages. Exemplaire de thèse de la faculté (elle ne parut jamais en librairie). Les recherches récentes en histoire de la neuro-chirurgie - notamment du côté anglo-saxon ont balayées la poussière sur des analyses qui, tendant à se recopier d'une décennie sur l'autre, décrétait Thieery de Martel et Clovis Vincent comme les inventeurs de la neuro-chirurgie française, voir de la neurochirurgie mondiale. Nous savons aujourd'hui que Chipault avait sans rien retirer à ceux la, été le véritable pionnier. Il a longtemps été occulté par la gloire de son père, comme si un "fils de" ne pouvait être aussi génial que le père. Le père, Antoine-Adolphe, dit Antony, Chipault (1833-1898), originaire de Chateauneuf sur Loire (Loiret), fut chirurgien chef de l'hôpital d'Orléans. Durant la guerre franco-allemande de 1870, le centre d'Orléans accueillit des milliers de blessés de l'armée de la Loire et Chipault rapporta les bons résultats obtenus. Les succès étaient beaucoup plus nombreux que ceux obtenus par Mordret. Delorme en analyse les raisons, multiples. Delorme évoque la "fraîcheur" des blessés, nouvellement débarqués d'Afrique ou récemment mobilisés, mais aussi, en particulier, la valeur du chirurgien et sa "perspicacité à saisir les indications des interventions que réclame la chirurgie conservatrice à une époque plus ou moins éloignée du traumatisme". Références : Delorme E : Traité de chirurgie de guerre, vol. 1, p. 348 : "Le livre de Chipault est un des plus volumineux et des plus substantiels documents que la guerre de 1870-71 nous a laissés. Il doit une partie de son mérite à la narration d'observations consciencieuses, poursuivies jusqu'à guérison complète des blessés." ; Legent F : Anthony CHIPAULT fils, pionner de la chirurgie de la base du crâne en France au XIXème siècle (site biusanté) : "Le père, Adolphe-Antoni dit Antony, fut chirurgien chef de l"Hôpital d Orléans, après son internat dans les Hôpitaux de Paris. Chipault père prit une part très active dans le système de santé lors de la guerre de 1870 où de durs combats furent livrés autour d"Orléans. Il dirigea de nombreuses ambulances et soigna près de 800 blessés français et 400 allemands. De cette expérience, il tira matière à plusieurs ouvrages sur les blessures par armes à feu, notamment un véritable traité magnifiquement illustré par des lithographies en couleur intitulé 'Fractures par armes à feu, expectation, résection sous-périostée, évidement, amputation (Armée de la Loire)'. On comprend qu'une telle hérédité ait marqué le jeune Antony Chipault fils dans son orientation professionnelle." ; Taithe B : Defeated Flesh: Medicine, Welfare, and Warfare in the Making of Modern France.

'Although the actual printing was done on the premises of the Ballantyne Press, the Vale books were built entirely on Mr. Ricketts' design under his personal supervision on a press set apart for his sole use; the founts, decorations, illustrations (including the engraving on wood), watermarks and pagination were all the work of Mr. Ricketts, and it is doubtful if, in the history of printing, books have been made which reflect the invention and work of one man more explicitly than do the Vale books' [Tomkinson p. 163].

         Discovery of Lakes Rudolf and Stefanie.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1894. A Narrative of Count Samuel Teleki's Exploring & Hunting Expedition in Eastern Equatorial Africa in 1887 & 1888. By his Companion. Translated by Nancy Bell (N. D'Anvers). 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue cloth, spines lettered and decorated in gilt, blind rules to boards enclosing gilt vignette of native tribesmen to front, black endpapers, edges untrimmed. Wood-engraved frontispiece to vol. 1, map frontispiece to vol. 2, numerous illustrations to the text of which 32 full-page, mostly wood-engravings from photographs, 2 large folding colour maps linen-backed at stub as issued. Front pastedowns with the bookplate of Norman Douglas Simpson (1890-1974), Cambridge botanist who was in Africa throughout the 1920s, working for the Cotton Research Board at Giza and on irrigation projects across Egypt and Sudan while also collecting numerous plant specimens for Kew. Spines rolled, headcaps and tips lightly rubbed and bumped, a few small markings to sides, moderate foxing, very occasional marginal finger-soiling. A very good copy. First edition in English of this "excellent work of exploration and sport … African adventure at its finest" (Czech), noted for recounting the European discovery of Lake Turkana, "the last of the great lakes of Africa to be discovered" (Howgego). Hungarian nobleman Samuel Teleki (1845-1916) developed an interest in the region north of Lake Baringo, in what is now Kenya, after learning of Joseph Thomson's expedition, which reported the supposed existence of a large haunted lake further north. He was encouraged by Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria to turn an intended safari into a journey of exploration, and von Höhnel, a naval officer "would equip and arm the expedition to the highest standards, money being no object" (ibid.) The party arrived in Zanzibar late in 1886, crossed to Pangani in January the following year and reached the foothills of Kilimanjaro by June, making an assault on the summit in which Teleki reached a height of 5300 metres (von Höhnel turned back after 4950). They continued north along Thomson's route through the Masai and Kikuyu homelands, though unlike Thomson showed little respect for local customs and endured many skirmishes with Kikuyu tribesmen. They reached Lake Baringo in February 1888, and Lake Turkana the month after. Returning via Baringo, they followed the Rift Valley and passed the future site of Nairobi, arriving back at Mombasa in October with over 400 ethnographic objects and a large collection of plant and animal specimens. Von Höhnel's account originally appeared in German (1891-2). This English translation is also encountered in brown cloth, with no priority assigned. Many of the numerous original photographs taken by Teleki and von Höhnel are believed to have been destroyed during the Second World War, so are only preserved by the line-drawings in the published account.

         [Kelmscott Press] The Story of the Glittering Plain, or the Land of Living Men

      Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1894. First edition. 4to. Original limp vellum with ochre color ties (all in tact). The magnificent first book of the Kelmscott Press, lavishly designed with 23 pictures by Walter Crane, woodcut initials, double spread title page, strapwork vignettes and designs throughout by William Morris. 250 Copies. Printed in black and red Troy type text. The fantasy tale by Morris, one of the first to combine an imaginary world with the supernatural, also presents sociopolitcal themes. The book represents the only title in the Kelmscott Press oeuvre in which a reissue was made, improved upon and enhanced. Thus, the first book of the press presented the same title, but without the Walter Crane illustrations, a much more aescetic without illustration, a much plainer version. In present edition, Morris increased the size of the book, changed the type to Troy, giving it a much more gothic look. Walter Crane, one of the premier artists and illustrators of the period, was commissioned to produce drawings which were then cut in wood for the final press run, in accordance with 15-16th Century European book production. The result is pleasingly graphic and evocative; one of the more aesthetic productions of the press. Copies on the market are few and far between. A nice, tight copy, brilliant internally, fine; the vellum covers show slight wear, but not detracting. A great plus to have all the ties in tact, with no breaks or fraying.

         [Kelmscott Press] The Tale of King Coustans the Emperor [IMPORTANT COPY-SURVIVING FIRE, WITH HOLOGRAPH NOTE]

      Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1894. First edition. 12mo. In original and highly unusual drab boards which may have been an early press room copy, reference example, or remainder held by the publisher (see below). This very copy made it through the infamous fire at the Ballantyne Press in 1899 (i.e. five years after the book was printed), and documented in a holograph note by Charles W. Howell on the front free endsheet: "This little volume passed through the fire at the Ballantyne Press, London. Charles W. Howell." Almost certainly the book and binding represent the very volume surviving the fire, as its gray paper is appears charred or at least smoke-singed, especially at the spine. A most amazing survival.
