RARE.Nota: la collection de Victor Cessole a été donné à la ville de Nice, le 19 mars 1933, au musée Masséna.

Ici photo originale le représentant en Excursionniste. Le Chevalier Victor Spitalieri De Cessole , famille originaire de Barcelonnette, ayant acquis le Comté de Cessole en Piémont au XVIII ème siècle.Le Chevalier Victor de Cessole ( 1859-1941 )" Ce nom de Victor de Cessole, né à Nice le 20 décembre 1859, est connu d'un petit nombre des spécialistes : alpinistes, bibliophiles, historiens. Ce personnage discret, aux idées d'avant-garde, a cependant doté sa région d'un équipement promis à connaitre une grande expansion : les sports d'hiver. En 1889, il rejoint le Club alpin français (CAF) de Nice, puis découvre les sommets aux alentours de Saint-Martin-Vésubie. Le mont Clapier, la cime du Gélas et la cime de la Malédie sont rapidement vaincus. Vient alors la systématisation dans la conquête des sommets des Alpes-Maritimes et de l'Argentera, suivie d'hivernales à partir de 1895. Accompagné d'un guide (le plus fréquemment Jean Plent) dans ses expéditions, il réalise de nombreuses premières. Président du Club Alpin Français, section des Alpes Maritimes, durant 32 ans, il est l'auteur de 7200 clichés pris sur le terrain avec un matériel lourd et encombrant. Toutes ces vues, reproduites parfois dans la revue du CAF, mais le plus souvent inédites, présentent chacune un grand intérêt. Deux pôles principaux se dégagent de l'action de Victor de Cessole : le création des refuges ainsi que l'introduction du ski dans le Haut-Pays Niçois.Il crée en 1909 le "Ski Club des AlpesMaritimes", et organise la même année un concours de ski à Turini Camp d'Argent avec la participation du 6ème Bataillon de Chasseurs Alpins. il sera aussi l'initiateur en 1930 de la création des secours en montagne dans le département niçois. Homme d'une grande bonté et d'une humanité sans faille, il s'éteint à Nice le 23 janvier 1941 ayant légué en 1933 sa précieuse bibliothèque au Musée Masséna." ( histoire du ski dans les Alpes Maritimes.) Victor de Cessole recevra de nombreux honneurs. Il est notamment fait officier de la Légion d'honneur en avril 1936. En hommage à l'

        The Humanitarian. A Monthly Review of Sociological Science. Edited by Victoria Woodhull Martin. Volume IV, January - June 1894

      17 Hyde Park Gate, S.W, London, 1894. First Edition. Hardcover. Fair Condition. Title page, portrait of Victoria Woodhull Martin, 480 pages, 5 portraits, 5 pages of index, 1 page contributors list. Articles feature an interview with Alfred Russell Wallace on "Heredity and Pre-Natal Influences", and contributions such as Arnold Bennett's "Faust and Marguerite", Stoppard A. Brooke on "The Story of the Women's Trades Union League", Sir William Moore's "The Anti-Opium Crusade", Morley Roberts on "The true Function of Cannibalism", Ettore Socci with "An Italian View of the Women's Movement", Mrs Aubrey Richardson on "Women and Gambling", and "Women in the Jury Box", and there are at least six pieces by Victoria Woodhull including "The Humanitarian Movement" and "The Evolution of Government". It is likely that a number of the unattributed shorter articles are by Woodhull too. Original green decorative cloth. Spine rubbed clean of lettering. Worn at corners and head and tail of spine. Shaken at inner joints, contents virtually loose from the binding, and one gather at rear almost completely detached. Some damage to text of page 159-160. Fore edges marked. Regardless of condition, this is a very rare volume, by one of the most interesting women of the nineteenth century. Perhaps most striking amongst her achievements was running for President of the United States in 1872, likely the first woman to do so, and with the former slave Frederick Douglas as her running-mate. She sought further nominations in 1884 and 1892. Later in her life she campaigned with views on abortion, eugenics, vegetarianism, sex education, prostitution, free love, and even short skirts. By 1877 she was living in London and met her third husband, banker John Biddulph Martin, and married in 1883. Under the name Victoria Woodhull Martin she began publishing "The Humanitarian", running from 1892 to 1901. Her husband died that year and she gave up published. She died in 1927, having lived a life with careers as varied as a Stockbroker (first woman on Wall Street to own her own brokerage, with her sister), a newspaper editor, women's rights advocate, and member of the First International. In Britain her chief contribution to public life was through the publication of "The Humanitarian", in which she was helped by her daughter Zula. Size: Octavo (standard book size).

        Bits of Old Chelsea. A Series of Forty-One Etchings ... with Letterpress Description by Lionel Johnson and Richard le Gallienne.

      Folio (446 x 310mm), pp. vii, [1 (blank)], 84; title printed in red and black and with publisher's device in red; mounted etched frontispiece and 40 mounted etchings printed on Japanese vellum, all signed in pencil by Burgess and retaining guards, mounted etched additional title printed on Japanese vellum; a few very faint marks, soft creases on the margins of a few plates, frontispiece creased; original maroon buckram, upper board lettered in gilt and with publisher's device in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, publisher's monogram on lower board, uncut, a few ll. unopened; light offsetting on endpapers, extremities slightly rubbed and bumped, foot of spine slightly chipped, nonetheless a very fresh, clean copy; provenance: David Enders (1922-2000).First edition, limited to 110 copies, of which 100 were for sale. This series of etchings was executed by the British engraver and painter Walter William Burgess RE (1856-1908), who exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1874 and 1903, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1883. The etchings depict historic and picturesque buildings, sites, and monuments in Chelsea, including Chelsea Reach, Swan Walk, the Royal Hospital, Old Battersea Bridge, Cheyne Walk, Lindsey House, the Old Church, the More Chapel, the More Monument, Petyt House, Carlyle's House, Queen's House, George Eliot's House, Turner's House, Leigh Hunt's House, Belle-Vue House, Whistler's House, Franklin's House, the Physic Garden, Glebe Place, and Lordship Place. The text accompanying Burgess' images was written by two young poets who were highly-regarded figures in the 'decadent' literary circles of the 1890s - Lionel Johnson (1867-1902) and Richard Le Gallienne (1866-1947), who were, with W.B. Yeats, Oscar Wilde, et al., early members of the Rhymer's Club and contributors to The Yellow Book. This copy is from the collection of the actor, restaurateur, and bibliophile David Enders, who was educated at Lindisfarne College and Wadham College, Oxford, before he was commissioned into the Welsh Guards in 1942. He was invalided out of the army in 1944 and then pursued a very successful career as an actor, both in the theatre and in radio drama. In 1950, Enders and his partner, the actor John Glen, opened the restaurant L'Aiglon in Old Church Street, Chelsea: 'the food was excellent and cheap enough to make it an economical alternative to eating at home for those living round about. The business expanded when their friend Sir Laurence Olivier suggested they start a restaurant at the Chichester theatre' (T. Pocock, 'David Enders' in Chelsea Society Annual Report (2000), pp. 63-4 at p. 64). Enders lived in Chelsea, latterly in Carlyle Square, for some fifty years, and his obituarist wrote that he 'might be described by a future anthropologist as a splendid example of Chelsea Man. [...] David was tireless in battling what he considered misguided developments in Chelsea; he was an active member of the Chelsea Society' (loc. cit.).

Minimal wear to covers with corners very slightly bumped with small abraisions (< 1/8") to lower corners of volumes II & III exposing boards but not visible unless volumes scrutinized. Another barely noticeable feature is the very slight rectilinear discoloration (about 3" x 4") appearing on each volume's upper cover (caused perhaps by bookends or dividers placed between each volume causing small offset marks). Vol. V has wear along the outer upper & lower joints and paper beginning to split along inner hinges (though not affecting the sewing), plus smoothed once dog-eared upper right corners to pages (i-xvi). Because this is a multi-volume set, additional shipping charges may be necessary.

      1894. Zusammen 19½ SS. auf 25 Bll. 4to und 8vo. Die zwei Zeichnungen auf einem mittig gefalteten Quartblatt. Bislang unbekannte Folge von Briefen an Baron Franz Wetschl, den Kanzleidirektor des Obersthofmeisteramtes und Präsidenten des Hofbaucomités. Die Schreiben betreffen zunächst die durch den Tod Hasenauers aufgetretenen Probleme bei der Fertigstellung des Burgtheaters und des Michaelertraktes der Hofburg (siehe Zitat) sowie Wagners Ernennung zum Oberbaurat (1894). Im weiteren handeln die Briefe von Fragen im Zusammenhang mit dem Stadterweiterungsfonds und dessen Finanzierung. - "Ihre Angelegenheit spukt mir seit gestern im Kopf herum. Nun bin ich nicht allein von dem Wunsche beseelt mich bei Ihnen recht auszuzeichnen, sondern auch der ganz verfahrenen Sache zu dienen u. auf die Beine zu helfen. Um nicht viel Langes u. Breites zu schreiben, fasse ich das Resultat meiner Beobachtungen in nachfolgende Punkte zusammen und sollen sie durch mitfolgende Schmierzeichnun[ungen] erläutert werden. 1. Niedzielsky ist auf keinen Fall zu engagieren. 2. Gruber ist in Gnaden zu entlassen. 3. Hofer ist mit der Bauaufsehung zu betrauen. 4. Das Hofbaucomité ist durch Otto Wagner zu verstärken [...]" (Br. v. 23. X. 1896). - Von den zwei mit grüner Feder ausgeführten Zeichnungen, die beide zu dem zitierten Brief gehören dürften, zeigt die eine eine Doppelsäule der Front der Neuen Hofburg gegen den Heldenplatz, die andere ein barockisierendes Architekturelement; beide Zeichnungen sind ebenfalls von Wagner mit schwarzer Tinte kommentiert worden. - Meist auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf.

April 1894 an die Prinzessin Maria de la Paz (1862-1946), die ihm Gedichte des spanischen Dichters Federico Balart Elgueta zugesandt hatte: "[...] Wenn auch über den Reiz des lyrischen Stils nur den Sprachgenossen des Dichters ein Urtheil zusteht, so glaube ich doch zu ahnen, was ein spanisches Ohr und Herz an diesem sombre amant de la mort entzücken muß. Auch mir erscheint der Reichthum eigenartiger Töne bewundernswerth, mit denen die Monotonie der Todtenklage in ergreifenden Variationen an uns vorbeizieht [...] Werden Sie mir's verdenken [...] Ihnen auszusprechen, zu welchem Ergebniß in eigenen schweren Lebensnöthen meine Weltanschauung gediehen ist? Auf die Gefahr hin, mit meinen innersten Überzeugungen, vielfach Ihrem Widerspruch zu begegnen, liegt es mir doch am Herzen, mich vor den Augen meiner erlauchten Gönnerin so darzustellen, wie ich bin: des Wortes eingedenk: in unseres himmlischen Vaters Reich sind viele Provinzen [...]". - Das Briefgedicht (22 Zeilen ohne Anrede, Unterschrift und Datum) gleichfalls an die Prinzessin, die ihm zum 70. Geburtstag gratuliert hatte: "Wohl in meinen Jugendtagen, | Hohe Frau, hätt' ich gewagt, | In den klangvoll edlen Lauten | Deines theuren Heimatlands | Jenen Festgruß zu erwiedern, | Den Du huldvoll mir gesandt [...]" (Gardone, 18.

        Autograph entry in the guestbook of the Villa Discopoli on Capri. Capri, 1894-1908.

      1894. 8vo. 66 ff. of entries and 19 blank ff. Contemp. calf with corner fittings and clasp. The present guestbook with more than 230 entries of varying length constitutes a fine document of Rilke's sojourn on Capri, where he had been invited as guest of Mrs. Alice Faehndrich, née Baroness of Nordeck zur Rabenau, sister of Countess Luise Schwerin. The poet spent the winter and following spring of 1906/07 on the island, "from December 4 to May 15 [...] living the life of the House of Roses attentively and gratefully", as he penned on the day before his departure. His wife Clara, too, was twice a guest at the glamorous villa: on Jan. 14, on her way to Egypt, she pays her thanks "for being honoured with two beautiful days at the Villa Discopoli as an unexpected present on my journey - between Berlin and Egypt", and after her return she spends the last few weeks there with her husband: "returned from Egypt the 20th of April, I was received and indulged until May 15 in the dear Villa Discopoli". Rilke's brief but grateful entry does not reveal that here he composed his "Improvisations from the Capri Winter", a work that points beyond his "New Poems". Other guests at the Villa whom Rikle must have met during his stay there included Wolfgang von Tirpitz (the son of Alfred von Tirpitz), Ferdinand von Martitz, and Franz von Niebelschütz. The encounter with the with most far-reaching consequences, however, was that with the young Countess Manon zu Solms-Laubach, a niece of the Hereditary Count Friederich (1833-1900). After her departure, a correspondence ensued which by 1913 was to comprise on Rilke's side no less than 19 letters and a calligraphic transcription of what is possibly Rilke's most famous poem, "The Panther". - Rilke and his wife had known the sister of their hostess Alice (called "Alla" in the guestbook), Countess Luise von Schwerin, née Nordeck zu Rabenau, since 1905, when they had met in Dresden. At the beginning of his stay, Rilke had been the only guest, but with the arrival of Alice, Julie von Nordeck ("Nonna"), and Manon zu Solms-Laubach his solitary position ended. "The exploration of Anacapri, the ascent to Monte Solaro, the visit to the grotta of Migliera and to the little church of Sarita Maria a Cetrella unlocked a countryside similar to Greece [...] During the evenings, the ladies were an attentive audience, when they sat doing their needlework or peeling him an apple, ready to hear his day's work [...]" (cf. Donald A. Prater, Ein klingendes Glas. Das Leben R. M. Rilkes, Hamburg 1989). - Apart from the entries of the Rilkes, the guestbook contains an autograph pencil portrait by Pauline von Kalckreuth, as well as the two-page poem, "Le tombeau du poete" ("d'apres Henry Heine") by Camille du Locle, who was soon to end his life on Capri. Other entries are by Vera Amerongen, Julia and Eugéne Bonnard, Réne and Gilbert Clavel, Emmy and Ernst Gumppenberg, Baroness and Baron Alice and Walther von Falkenhausen, Hanns and Margarethe Floerke, Leonie and Marie Fontaine, Eberhard Hardeck zur Rabenau (Count of Schwerin), Heinrich and Elise Lützow, Richard Mackensen, Ferdinand von Martitz, Julie Baroness Nordeck zu Rabenau (née von Wallenberg), Baron Friedrich von Oppeln-Bronikowski (fine, 1½-page dedication with a 14-line poem), Emmy von Radetzky, Prince Heinrich XXX. zu Reuss, A. von Röder, Auguste Schepp, Leopold von Schlözer (with a half-page, coloured pencil drawing), Luise Schwerin (wife of Count Karl v. Schwerin), Count Friedrich von Schwerin, Countess Manon zu Solms-Laubach, Baroness and Baron Mathilde and Arthur von Stackelberg, Wolfgang von Tirpitz, Baron Jakob and Gabrielle von Uexküll (twice), Hermann Vierordt, Anna von Wallenberg, Wanda von Wallenberg, Elisabeth Wegeli, Baroness Adele Wolff, Count and Countess von Zieten Schwerin, and Ernst Zitelmann (with a fine quote from his "Radierungen und Momentaufnahmen", published the same year). - Wants spine; covers rubbed and with signs of splitting; binding loosened.

He also plans to publish an album of lithographs, provided he managed to find more subscribers. - Letter 4 (17 March 1897): some chat on the spring; mentions an exhibition in Dresden. - Postcards: complaints that Mengelberg is a poor correspondent. - Richard Mengelberg (1853-1932) wrote, in 1894, an article on Munch's works for the Frankfurter Zeitung. He was father of Nora Mengelberg, whose portrait Munch painted in 1894. He also made an etching of Richard Mengelberg the same year, his first work as an graphic artist.
