      Westminster, Archibald Constable and Company, 1897.. First Edition. 24 cm x 16 cm. Volume I: XIII, 510 pages / Volume II: XIII, 665 pages. Original Hardcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear.. Fridtjof Nansen (10 October 1861 - 13 May 1930) was a Norwegian explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. In his youth a champion skier and ice skater, he led the team that made the first crossing of the Greenland interior in 1888, cross-country skiing on the island, and won international fame after reaching a record northern latitude of 86°14' during his North Pole expedition of 1893-96. Although he retired from exploration after his return to Norway, his techniques of polar travel and his innovations in equipment and clothing influenced a generation of subsequent Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. Nansen studied zoology at the Royal Frederick University in Christiania (renamed Oslo in 1925), and later worked as a curator at the Bergen Museum where his research on the central nervous system of lower marine creatures earned him a doctorate and helped establish modern theories of neurology. After 1896 his main scientific interest switched to oceanography; in the course of his research he made many scientific cruises, mainly in the North Atlantic, and contributed to the development of modern oceanographic equipment. As one of his country's leading citizens, in 1905 Nansen spoke out for the ending of Norway's union with Sweden, and was instrumental in persuading Prince Carl of Denmark to accept the throne of the newly independent Norway. Between 1906 and 1908 he served as the Norwegian representative in London, where he helped negotiate the Integrity Treaty that guaranteed Norway's independent status. In the final decade of his life, Nansen devoted himself primarily to the League of Nations, following his appointment in 1921 as the League's High Commissioner for Refugees. In 1922 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on behalf of the displaced victims of the First World War and related conflicts. Among the initiatives he introduced was the "Nansen passport" for stateless persons, a certificate recognised by more than 50 countries. He worked on behalf of refugees until his sudden death in 1930, after which the League established the Nansen International Office for Refugees to ensure that his work continued. This office received the Nobel Peace Prize for 1938. Nansen was honoured by many nations, and his name is commemorated in numerous geographical features, particularly in the polar regions.

        SOME GERMAN WOODCUTS OF THE FIFTEENTH CENTURY.

      Hammersmith, Kelmscott Press, 1897.Thirty - five reproductions from printed books in the library of William Morris, 1897. Slim 4to, approximately 300 x 215 mm, 12 x 8½ inches, pages: xi, 23 leaves illustrating woodcuts with some text, printed and numbered on rectos only, then pages 24 - 36 and last leaf with colophon, Kelmscott monogram. Printed in red and black in Golden type, bound in plain dark blue cloth of the period, cut out paper title mounted on upper cover, edges untrimmed. Binding a little rubbed and scratched with a few small indentations to upper cover, head of spine bumped, first page of the woodcuts has a shallow crease to lower corner, a few other light creases to margins of pages with woodcuts, not affecting images, edges of pages have slight rippling, pale age - browning to endpapers, otherwise a clean crisp copy. NOT IN THE ORIGINAL KELMSCOTT BINDING. Of these thirty - five reproductions twenty - nine were all that were done of a series chosen by Mr. Morris to illustrate a catalogue of his library, and the other six were prepared by him for an article in the 4th number of Bibliographica, part of which is reprinted as an introduction to the book. The process blocks (with one exception) were made by Walker & Boutall, and are of the same size as the original cuts. Limited edition of 225 copies plus 8 vellum copies, the limitation not printed in the book. See Willan Peterson, A Bibliography of the Kelmscott Press, pages 131 - 134, No. A49. The binding is of the time and the paper label looks like paper and type used by the Kelmscott Press. According to Peterson the book sold out and many customers were disappointed so it could have been a rejected copy due to a crease in the margin of the first illustration? Obviously this is speculation. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        A pair of letters from Frank Lloyd Wrights' wife Olgivanna to Lewis Mumford featuring a touching letter following the architect's death in 1959: " your words are good . I wish there were more of them to Frank himself when he was alive - he felt badly over your relationship."

      Various, Various. Various. "An archive of four pieces, including a pair of Autograph Letters Signed by Wright's third wife, Olgivanna Lloyd Wright (1897-1985), June 20, 1955, and May 9, 1955 to Lewis Mumford; an original invitation to the 1928 wedding of Olgivanna and Frank Lloyd Wright, together with an original 1927 telegram from Wright to Robert M. Lovett, editor of the New Republic inviting him to visit Taliesin. Light marginal losses and toning to telegram, balance of archive in overall fine condition.Of great interest is the 1959 letter from Olgivanna to Lewis Mumford thanking him for his condolences following Frank Lloyd Wright's death on April 9, 1959. On April 15, 1959, Mumford wrote: ""What can I say by way of love and sympathy at this moment that you do not already know in your heart? Your loss is our loss: yet the two are incommensurable. The great period of Frank's life was that which followed his marriage with you: all that led up to this, however magnificent, was still preparatory. Be consoled by the thought of all that you did that helped to make those years to fecund and memorable. Let this left you in your grief, as it lifts us who have no claim to such intimacy. Last Monday?"I am writing you from the University of Pennsylvania?"I was scheduled to give a lecture on Modern Architecture: instead I spoke for almost two hours on Frank. The students, on the day the sad news came over the radio, had flown a black streamer from the flagpole of the School of Fine Arts: and they turned out, as never before, to do honor to him at the lecture. He filled their thoughts, one of them told me, all that night...""(Pfeiffer, Wojtowicz, eds., Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford: Thirty Years of Correspondence, 2001, 282).On May 9, Olgivanna finally found time to respond to Mumford, writing on her own distinctive letterhead: ""Dear Lewis Thank you for your letter - your words are good . I wish there were more of them to Frank himself when he was alive - he felt badly over your relationship. It is sad that so often death opens the eyes of the living- With affection to you and Sophia.""The archive also includes an additional letter from Olgivanna, addressed to Mumford on June 20, 1955: ""Frank and I missed having you, Sophia and Alison with us at Taliesin and we were very sorry to hear of the illness which kept you from coming. Sophia's strong nature should help her overcome the virus sooner than the doctors predict. They are not always right! Frank was happy to have your beautiful letter on his birthday. We are both looking forward to your new book, and we are especially pleased that 'Sticks and Stones' is to appear again. it was the basis of your friendship with Frank because it came at the time when he needed support and you were among the first to give it to him. The book on which I have been working is coming out in October. it is a series of philosophic essays?"the result of my search, study and experiences in the realm of ideas. I hope that you and Sophia will find yourselves in harmony with what I have written. Anyway we always yearn that those we care for will understand us."" The archive also includes a magnificent original proof invitation announcing his impending nuptials to Olgivanna, held in Rancho Santa Fe, California on August 25, 1928 in an unusual format: a 4.5"" x 5.5"" sepia photograph of a hand-written invitation in Wright's distinctive style featuring a baby picture of Olgivanna (originally ""OLGA IVANOVA"") lying just above a red, hand-colored polygon, lundoubtedly rendered by Wright. The collection also includes a telegram from Wright, transmitted on October 21, 1927 to Robert M. Lovett, editor of the New Republic, written in his typical, irreverent style: ""CIRCUMSTANCES LEAVE ME ALONE AND LONESOME FOR SEVERAL WEEKS COME UP WITH LEWIS MUMFORD AND BRING YOUR WIVES AND CHILDREN FOR A WEEK OR TWO AND DO YOUR WORK HERE BEAUTY OF COUNTRYSIDE AND HOME INTOXICATING EXPENSE OF TRIP NO MORE THAN A FEW EVENING IN NEWYORK FORGET THE NEW REPUBLIC. FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT.""Provenance: Lewis Mumford. The text of all of these communications have been published in Pfeiffer, Wojtowicz, eds., Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford: Thirty Years of Correspondence, 2001. Lewis Mumford and Frank Lloyd Wright first began corresponding in the 1920s, after Mumford had contributed an essay to the Dutch journal Wendingen in 1925 in which he discussed Wright's work as a continuation of a line of innovation begun by H. H. Richardson and Louis Sullivan as well as placing Wright in contrast to the European modernists like Le Corbusier. Mumford also characterized Wright's work as an ideal of form and expression ideally suited to the American landscape. An article along similar lines authored by Mumford for The American Mercury, elected a response from Wright in August 1926, in which the architect questioned the depth Mumford's understanding of his work. A set of exchanges culminated in their first meeting, a luncheon at the Plaza Hotel in New York, during the winter of 1926-1927 that would being a long and productive dialogue and friendship.This friendship, born of mutual respect and a love of argument, came under enormous strain in the years leading up the Second World War. Mumford, a liberal Democrat, viewed the rise of Nazism and Fascism anxiously?"as he detailed in numerous articles and two full-length works: Men must Act (1939) and Faith For Living (1940) . Wright held a different view. His general distrust of empire compelled Wright to take a stand against American involvement in the escalating European conflict that stuck many as merely isolationist?"a charge that the architect roundly rejected.The final straw for Mumford came in a broadsheet published by Wright: A Taliesin Square-Paper, subtitled as ""A nonpolitical voice from our democratic minority""), which declared ""HITLER IS WINNING THIS WAR WITHOUT A NAVY. We are facing a new kind of warfare that the British Empire, owing to traditional faith in a great navy, cannot learn in time even if we furnished the equipment... Our frontier is no longer England, nor in any sense, it is European. Our frontier is our own shores."" An infuriated Mumford shot back to Wright: ""You dishonor all the generous impulses you once ennobled... Be silent! lest you bring upon yourself some greater shame."" To this, Wright retorted: ""There is no good Empire, there never was a just war."" True to his principles, Wright remained steadfastly opposed to the Second World War, and war in general. Escalating the feud, Mumford published his response to Wright in the interventionist journal, the New Leader. The two did not speak for over a decade. The postwar period saw a thaw in their relationship, and Mumford remained a great admirer of Wright's work, despite their personal and philosophical differences. And Wright, despite Mumford's public shaming of the architect in print, continued sending New Year's greetings, unanswered by Mumford. However in the spring of 1951, Wright forwarded Mumford a copy of Sixty Years of Living Architecture, inscribed: ""In spite of all, your old F. Ll. W.""The gesture moved Mumford to respond and the two began the process of reconciliation. (Pfeiffer, 22-26)"

        Collection of 66 autograph letters signed to the French composer Fernand Halphen and Madame Georges Halphen

      Approximately 145 pp.) + 1 concert program. Varying sizes, including 12mo, 8vo, and 4to. 54 letters dated or postmarked 1897-1904; 12 undated. Most written in black ink; several in pencil and green ink. On letterhead, personalized stationery, etc. and including telegrams, postcards, and cartes de visite, many with original autograph envelopes. In French. A rare and unusually comprehensive collection of letters to Fernand Halphen, Risler's old classmate at the Paris Conservatoire, and Halphen's mother. Written during a crucial period in Risler's life, the letters chronicle his sojourns to Germany, where he spent two summers as stage manager and singing coach at Bayreuth; his increasingly busy piano career; and several major life-events, including the deaths of his father and aunt, and his and Halphen's marriages. They also record Risler's diverse musical tastes - from his effusive, youthful veneration of Liszt and Wagner, and his delight in the piano works of fellow Frenchman Gabriel Fauré, to his ever more profound admiration for the late piano sonatas of Beethoven. Finally, the letters mention several noted musicians with whom Risler interacted, studied, or became friends, including Jules Massenet, Théodore Dubois, Ernest Guiraud, Reynaldo Hahn, and Arthur Sullivan. With several musical quotations from the works of Wagner, Ambroise Thomas, and others, and one pencil sketch. Occasional autograph corrections. Together with a program for two piano recitals at Prince's Hall, London on May 17 and 23, 1894(?) featuring works of Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, and Schubert. "The last sonatas of Beethoven have occupied me for a month. I could never study them deeply in Paris where the time and frame of mind are totally lacking for such work, if one can call the study of this splendour work... They are unknown, or superficially known by artists in Paris, where, when they speak of Beethoven, they always imply the works as far as the second period. They are much too hasty to understand the rest..." (July 18, 1893); "... tell Fauré that I've read and re-read his last Valse Caprice with unique pleasure. Has he ever written something as exquisite and fine? And what pianistic writing. It is the aristocracy of finesse!... (1893); "I'm reading the Wagner-Liszt correspondence... [which reveals] "two heroic characters..." [and the] "final triumph of genius, of the will, of the resignation to suffering, to martyrdom, and most of all, of love...(July 16, 1894); "... I was very saddened not to see you named at the fugue competition... Unfortunately, the world is so cruel!! Instead let's immerse ourselves in the study and contemplation of Parsifal and Die Meistersinger... which sometimes makes me fall into moments of ecstasy, when I truly forget what's around me... " (undated). Occasional light wear, soiling, and smudging; creased at folds; several letters with minor tearing, small perforations, or slight loss at edges, just minimally affecting text. In good to very good condition overall. . Risler was a French pianist, teacher and conductor of Alsatian and German descent. "He entered the Paris Conservatoire in the preparatory piano class of Emile Decombes, and subsequently studied there with Diémer, winning a premier prix in 1889. Following further instruction in music theory, he went to Germany and had lessons from the Liszt pupils Bernhard von Stavenhagen, Klindworth and, most significantly, D'Albert... His international career dated from 1894, when he gave two recitals in London. Although championing the piano music of his contemporaries (he is the dedicatee of the Dukas Piano Sonata), Risler became renowned as a Beethoven player, giving his first cycle of the complete sonatas in Paris in 1905. His one-composer recitals also included performances of both books of Bach's ‘48Â’, as well as a Chopin series. Risler made a piano version of Richard Strauss's Till Eulenspiegel and he also performed the Liszt transcription of Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique. He taught for some years at the Paris Conservatoire, numbering Jacques Février, Pierre Luboschutz and Marcel Gaveau among his pupils... Revered by his colleagues, he achieved a status as an interpreter of Beethoven that has remained unmatched by any other French pianist." James Methuen-Campbell in Grove Music Online. Fernand Halphen (1872-1917) was a French composer. He studied with Gabriel Fauré before entering the Paris Conservatoire, where he took Ernest Guiraud's composition course. Upon Giraud's death in 1892, he studied with Massenet. In 1895, he won first prize for fugue, and in 1896 second place for the Prix de Rome. His compositions include several symphonies, a suite for orchestra, a ballet, a sonata for violin and piano, and mélodies.

In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular contributors, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), the Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. The Hermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time as the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] which deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his state of mind symbolist, employees are more interested in poetry than novel. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, says that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddles the fin de siècle aestheticism and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie bichrome. Contributions littéraires de René Boylesve, Paul Fort, Francis Jammes, Henri Ghéon, Remy de Gourmont, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.
