        Rollenbuch Walter Franck als Jago, mit zahlreichen handschriftlichen Regieanmerkungen, Lobe-Theater Breslau, 1921. Zugleich: Textbuch Othello. Trauerspiel von William Shakespeare, übersetzt von August Wilhelm Schlegel und Ludwig Tieck

      99 S., Frontipiz-Portrait Shakespeares, privates HLn. der Zeit mit braun-grün gesprenkeltem Marmorpapier, kl.8. 30 zusätzlich eingeschossene Tafeln mit zahlr. hschr. Anm. Walter Francks in schwarzer Tinte, einige in Bleistift. Die für die Inszenierung benutze Strichfassung im gedruckten Text ist markiert durch roten, blauen, lila u. Bleistift. - Die Handschrift Francks ist sehr gut lesbar u. verdeutlicht seine äußerst intensive Arbeit nicht nur an der Jago-Figur. - Walter Franck (1894 o. 1896 - 1961), bedeutender deutscher Schauspieler, Engagements u.a. am Lobe-Theater Breslau, Staatstheater, Deutschen Theater u. Schiller-Theater Berlin. Walter Franck spielte in dieser "Othello"-Inszenierung nicht nur den Jago, sondern führte zugleich auch Regie, Premiere: 23.2.1921 Lobe-Theater Breslau, Intendant: Richard Gorter. Die Titelrolle spielte zunächst Paul Wegener a.G., später Julius Arnfeld, weitere Besetzung u.a.: Heinz Rühmann (Rodrigo), Julius Barna (Doge), Ferdinand Steinhofer (Cassio), Friedrich Reinecke (Lodovico), Elfriede Rhode (Emilie), Ilka Otto (Desdemona), Georg Schybilski (Herzog), Herbert Böhme (Senator), Rudolf Maaß (Brabantino), Carl Veit (Montano). - Theatergeschichtlich bemerkenswerte Inszenierung, die zu einer heftigen Auseinandersetzung zwischen der Intendanz des Lobe-Theaters und der Breslauer Jounaille führte. Die vom Publikum gefeierte Inszenierung wurde von der Presse extrem verrissen, insbesondere wurde die animalische, quasi triebhafte Spielweise Wegeners kritisiert (die damit im deutlichen Widerspruch zu traditionellen Othello-Verkörperungen etwa von A. Matkowsky stand). Im Gegenzug verteidigte Intendant Gorter recht souverän diese Inszenierung an seinem Haus. Buchzustand: Ecken u. Kanten berieben, kl. Fehlstelle am Überzugspapier d. Vorderdeckels, eine eingeschossene Tafel fehlt, wenige Tafeln geringfügig fleckig. Schönes, gutes Exemplar. Gajek, Das Breslauer Schauspiel, 107ff. Karsch, Walter Franck, 15 Lexikon Theater international, 288f.

        F. F. V. Receipt Book

      West, Johnston & Co. Hardcover. B000871DTM 1894 presentation copy inscribed by the author, first edition West, Johnston and Co. (Richmond, Virginia), 5 1/2 x 7 5/8 inches tall green cloth hardbound, no dust jacket, gilt lettering to front cover and spine, floral endpapers, 287 pp. (266 pp., followed by an eight-page index and 12 pages of period advertisements). Moderate soiling, rubbing and edgewear to covers, with bumping to all four tips. Period three-entry errata glued to front pastedown. Nicely inscribed by the author in the year of issue on the blank front free-endpaper ('For Mrs. Effinger with the compliments of The Authoress, June 27, 1894'). Red ink marginal notations to a half dozen pages, mostly noting the errata. Erased pencil notations to blank rear free-endpaper. Otherwise, apart from slight marginal soiling to a couple of pages, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of this uncommon First Families of Virginia (F.F.V.) recipe book, quite rare as a presentation copy. According to the publisher's 1894 listing, 'Contains over eight hundred receipts, including all the favorite old Virginia receipts, menus for dinners and luncheons, rules for serving wines, etc., etc.' ~SS~ The author, Jane Millicent Powell McPhail (1842 - 1907) was a lifelong resident of Virginia, and wife of a Confederate Army officer, Capt. Clement Carrington McPhail, who was in command of the arsenal at Ashville, North Carolina and then Columbia, South Carolina. The First Families of Virginia were those families in Colonial Virginia who were socially prominent and wealthy, but not necessarily the earliest settlers. They descended from English colonists who primarily settled at Jamestown, Williamsburg, and along the James River and other navigable waters in Virginia during the 17th century. These elite families generally married within their social class for many generations and, as a result, most surnames of First Families date to the colonial period. The American Revolution cut ties with Britain but not with its social traditions. While some First Family members were loyal to Britain, others were Whigs who not only supported, but led the Revolution. Most first families remained in Virginia, where they flourished as tobacco planters, and from the sale of slaves to the cotton style. Indeed, many younger sons were relocated into the cotton belt to start their own plantations. The Civil War devastated the Virginia economy, and emancipated all the slaves without compensation. Planters and small farmers both were economically hurt, but in general the First Families, albeit poorer than before, maintained social and political leadership. Marshall Fishwick says that by the 1950s, 'the old-time aristocracy [had] not given up, or sunk into decadence as Southern novelists suggest.' They adopted modern agricultural technology and co-opted rich 'Yankees' into their upper-class, rural horse-estate society. New York restaurant Tipsy Parson is named for a recipe from this book for a sherry-drenched sponge-cake trifle - 'when saturated with the wine, pour over it a rich boiled custard flavored with what you like and stick blanched almonds thick all over the top.' . Good. 1894. First Edition.

        Antrittsrede

      pages 641-644 in the Journal issue of Sitzungsberichte der Köiglich Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin. XXXII. 28 Juni 1894, Berlin, 1894 4to, pages 623 to 647 ; original orange wrappers A perfect copy, totally uncut and with all margins, as Journal issue, of the inaugural lecture at the Berlin Academy in which Planck introduces, formulates and gives the hope and he futur developments of his new physics. "Soon afterward Planck was influenced by the increasing German interest in Maxwell's theory. It is understandable that, as a theoretical physicist, he would seek to unite his earlier thermodynamic studies with the new theory, an attempt in the spirit of his lecture "System der gesammten Physik." "Thus, in his inaugural lecture at the Berlin Academy in 1894, he clearly expressed the hope "that we can also explain those processes which are directly dependent on temperature, as manifested especially in heat radiation, without first having to make a laborious detour through the mechanical interpretation of electricity."[...] Consequently, in 1895, Planck began just in electrodynamics to prepare for this undertaking by treating the irreversibility of heat radiation, before he introduced entropy into his equations in 1898. Planck's ultimate goal was the investigation of irreversible processes through the study of conservative effects (that is, conservative or radiation damping)." (DSB, volume 11, page 10). Only a stamp number of the first cover ; rare in such condition.

The interior has an 1894 ink ownership signature on the second enpaper and something has been removed from the rear endpaper facing the penultimate leaf. A few glue spots are visable and three have small paper remnants still attached. There is a 1/2" abrasion near the center of the page (with the tear showing on the verso) and the bottom corner is creased. The remainder of the interior is in excellent condition with the leaves showing just light toning. If not for the rear endpaper, this copy would grade near fine.

        Zambra The Detective

      Chatto and Windus: London, 1894. 8vo. 259pp. + 32pp. ads (dated Nov. 1893). Publisher's dark red cloth over limp (or at least notably thin) boards, titled and decorated in gilt, black and tellow to spine and front board. Publisher's device in black to rear board. Rubbed to extremities, bumped and with some staining and toning to the cloth, some light chipping to the paint on the front board image, but solid, strong and handsome. A very good presentable copy of a significant rarity (the usual suspects list but a handful of copies worldwide). Floral patterned endpapers, internally clean and fresh. The stories included in this collection can trace their origin to the very simple late 19th century recurring theme: "We really like Sherlock Holmes, yes we do, we'd like more of that please." Hill set out to create a rival to Holmes and in fact created one of the more exotic variants on the theme. He realised that there had to be something more than just another deductive consulting detective and, being Headon Hill went full "mad as a bag of weasels" and created not only Zambra but the equally compelling and peculiar Kala Persad (equally rare, totally mad). The Doyle influence is manifestly obvious, although occasionally the cases don't require a mastermind to solve them, and as usual Hill basically decided that every one of the reader's immediate assumptions should be confounded at least once a chapter. Zambra sounds foreign, but is excruciatingly English, his mysteries are titled in a manner that frequently bears only a cursory relationship to the plot, and he specialises in rather entertaining linguistic misdirection. All very entertaining and peculiarly charming; ranking the author quite high on the list of Holmesian bandwagon jumpers who actually had some serious skills of their own. A very scarce and important piece of detective fiction. .

        The Journal of Indian Art, Vol. 5, Nos. 38-45

      London: W. Griggs, 1894. Hardbound. Contents are VG or better, front inner hinge and gutter weak, and front cover is beginning to detach. Lower half of spine cloth is attached only at back hinge. Several pages are brittle and beginning to detach and chip or are detached. The tri-fold color plate in that section is completely detached and laid in. There is light off-setting from each colored plate onto the facing page (usually a blank page, so no text is marred). The volume is ex-library from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with a stamp on the title page, a sticker on the back free end paper, and the remnant of a pocket inside the back cover. In addition, each color plate is library-stamped on the reverse. A personal bookplate of William Sturgis Bigelow, Boston surgeon and collector of Asian (especially Japanese) art. He donated his entire collection of 25,000 works of art to the MFA. The contents are bound consecutively but without original covers, as various "chapters" of a book. The original paper covers are bound together, in order, at the back of the volume.. Green gilt embossed publisher's cloth. Unpaginated, and filled with breathtaking colored chromolithographs (36 in color on single sheets, some with multiple images; one tri-fold) and other two-tone plates and images. Heavy at 7 pounds and will require extra postage. Scholarly literature on the decorative arts in India is scanty and mainly in learned journals. The Journal of Indian Art and Industries (1886-1916) is the most important and contains numerous pioneering studies. Original front and rear wraps from each issue are bound in at the rear. These covers have the contents of each issue printed on them. This is the exceedingly rare third volume of this seminal and Influential periodical on Indian arts. See article by Peter H. Hoffenberg entitled "John Lockwood Kipling, W. H. Griggs and The Journal of Indian Art and Industry" written in 2003 for a complete description of this periodical. He states: "...Kipling's and Buck's vision encouraged use of the latest photographic and reproductive innovations to ensure accurate and attractive illustrations of lasting quality. Griggs and his editorial staff took advantage of that encouragement and of the most current technology to produce exquisite color chromo- and photo-lithographs bound in leather. Black and white illustrations were also included...No doubt the publisher applied chromo-lithographic technologies from Britain and the continent, but the pages of the Journal also included illustrations resulting from innovative work in the heliogravure and collotype sections of India's own Revenue and Agriculture Department, particularly the offices devoted to the Survey of India. " The first 4 or 5 volumes of this publication seem exceedingly scarce.

Edition originale rare portant un envoi autographe signé à l'avocat et diplomate Marcellin Pellet (1849-1942), député du Gard de 1876 à 1885 : A Mr Marcellin Pellet affectueux souvenir E. Marey. « Le Mouvement reste le plus célèbre et le plus rare des ouvrages de l'auteur (bon nombre des exemplaires on été détruits dans un incendie). Sans qu'il y paraisse, Étienne-Jules Marey (1830-1904) a transfiguré le réel le plus immédiat. En capatnt le mouvement pour mieux enregistrer les phénomènes vivants, il est parvenu à transcrire une idée du temps en termes d'espace - sans jamais prendre la trajectoire pour le mouvement. Modernité d'une pensée et d'une démarche où s'enracineront sciences, arts et techniques, d'où naîtra en une vision du monde particulièrement féconde toute la symbolique visuelle du siècle à venir. » Bel exemplaire.

        From the Virginia Plantation to the National Capitol: Or the First and Only Negro Representative in Congress from the Old Dominion

      Hartford, CT: American Publishing Company, 1894. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. 8vo. Complete. Sound binding with some minor wear including a cracked rear hinge. Fascinating autobiography. Langston, born free in 1829 as the youngest son of a Louisa County plantation owner and his emancipated true love, lived with his siblings in the big house until his parents' death in 1834. At that time, the children, whose inheritance was substantial, moved to Ohio to live with abolitionist friends. Langston graduated from Oberlin College and studied law under the tutelage of Republican Congressman Philemon Bliss. Langston became one of the first black men ever to hold public office in the United States when he won the election to a town clerk position in Ohio, and he became the first African-American elected to the U.S. Congress from Virginia during Reconstruction in 1888. He also served as the first dean of the law school at Howard University and the first president of what is now Virginia State University.

The hand coloured plates are duplicated, appearing in the uncoloured state also, suggesting some intentional collaboration between the publisher, the binder, and Miss Cardew. It is now known, however, how many copies of this already tiny edition were issued thus coloured. Cardew was associated with the Guild of Women Bookbinders, which was the sister bindery to the Hampstead Bindery, both set up by Frank Karslake. David Nutt was British publisher notable for its concentrated output of editions collecting myth, legend and fairy tale.
