Leitenberger, Friedrich Freiherr von, Industrieller (1837-1899).
Wien, 16. XII, 1897. 1 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An ein Komitee: "Ich danke verbindlichst für die mich in hohem Grade ehrende Einladung, das Ehren Präsidium des Prager deutschen Theater-Vereins-Balles zu übernehmen; leider jedoch bin ich außer Lage, davon Gebrauch zu machen [...]". - Friedrich Leitenberger hatte 1858 die Leitung des Familienunternehmens in Josefsthal-Kosmanos übernommen und widmete sich zunächst der von seinem Onkel Friedrich eingeleiteten maschinellen Ausstattung der Textilfabrik. "Neben der Aufstellung einer Dampfmaschine von 120 PS errichtete er eine Gasanstalt und nahm mehrfärbige Walzendruckmaschinen in Betrieb. Seit 1881 arbeitete er mit zwölffärbigen Druckmaschinen. In Grottau ließ er eine neue Baumwollspinnerei und -weberei erbauen. Leitenberger war um die soziale Absicherung seiner Arbeiter und Angestellten bemüht; er gründete eine Kranken-, Pensions- und Unterstützungskasse und unterhielt eine Volksschule für die Kinder seiner mehr als 2000 Arbeiter. Er gründete den Centralverband der Industriellen Österreichs, war böhmischer Landtags- und Reichstagsabgeordneter und wurde 1873 in den Freiherrenstand erhoben" (DBE).

KIPLING, Rudyard.
London: Macmillan & Co., Limited, 1897. Crown octavo (185 x 121 mm). Near-contemporary blue morocco presentation binding by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, raised bands to spine, lettered and richly decorated with floral and anchor devices in gilt, covers tooled in gilt with a double fillet border and double ruled panel with rope-like tooling and anchor cornerpieces, gilt monogram "SS" to centre of front cover, double gilt rule to turn-ins, gilt edge roll, gauffered edges gilt. Spine toned, expert repair to head of spine, boards a little bowed, damp staining to head of covers. A very good copy, handsomely bound. Frontispiece with tissue-guard and 22 illustrations by I. W. Taber. First UK edition, binder's presentation copy, with a calligraphic inscription in manuscript in red and black ink, "To Irene, with best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. From the bindery, December 1920", signed by George Sutcliffe beneath the inscription, to the fourth binder's blank (Sangorski having died in 1912). It is probable that this was a Christmas gift given to employees of the company; Irene worked for Sangorski and Sutcliffe for 16 years, and was the wife of Stanley Bray (1907-1995), George Sutcliffe's nephew and manager of the business from 1936. In 1989 Irene and Stanley produced a copy of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam based on the original plans for the infamous bejewelled Great Omar, first made by Sangorski and Sutcliffe in 1912, and sent on the RMS Titanic, sinking with the ship.

1897. A Novel. By Opie Read. Chicago: Printed for Way & Williams, 1897. Original mottled tan cloth pictorially decorated in black, yellow and white. First Edition of this southern novel which today is most collected for being Maxfield Parrish's very first book cover illustration, and for being a magnificent book designed by Way & Williams of Chicago.

At the end of the book is the note, "This book has been printed during May, 1897, by the Blakely Printing Company, Chicago, for Way & Williams." The frontispiece and the illustrations in the text are by Charles Francis Browne.~This is an attractive copy, near-fine with very light wear at some corners. Wright III 4459.

Near Fine with elaborate gilt design by Althea Gyles incredibly vibrant, slightly tarnished at the edges on the front cover yet still retaining so much of it's original beauty and luster. Light rubbing to cloth at points and rear cover, ding to edge of rear board. Pages lightly toned with an occasional small blemish. A shining and bright example of a beautifully designed book, which tragically is all too often found heavily rubbed and worn.

Panizza, Oskar
Berlin, S. Fischer, 1897 8°, VI, 102 S., 1 Taf., Priv.-Lwd., Papier min. gebräunt, sonst tadellos. EA. Hayn-Gotendorf VI. 17. - Erste selbständige Ausgabe mit Auslassungen im Text nach Selbstzensur des Verlages. - "Das Haberfeldtreiben ist ein heute nicht mehr gebräuchliches Rügegericht im Bayerischen Oberland. das vor allem in der ehemaligen Grafschaft Hohenwaldeck (in etwa die Gegend rund um Tölz. Tegernsee. Miesbach. Rosenheim und Ebersberg) ausgeübt wurde und dem oft Reiche oder Angehörige der Obrigkeit zum Opfer fielen. zumeist aber Frauen. die unverheiratet schwanger geworden waren. Dabei handelte es sich um ein nach mehr oder weniger festen Regeln ablaufendes Ritual. in dessen Verlauf den Beschuldigten in Versform ihre Verfehlungen vorgehalten wurden. Weder fand das Haberfeldtreiben vor dem Haus des Beschuldigten statt. noch handelte es sich um eine Art Treibjagd (etwa durch ein Haferfeld). In der Regel versammelte man sich auf Wiesen oder Hügeln in Hörweite der betroffenen Dörfer. Die Inhalte der `Treiben` waren häufig sittlicher Natur (gemessen an den Moralvorstellungen des Volkes). eben so oft aber wurden auch soziale oder wirtschaftliche (Un-)Taten gerügt. Das Haberfeldtreiben kann heute als Rügebrauch bezeichnet werden; die einem Gericht innewohnende Möglichkeit. sich gegen die vorgeworfenen Verfehlungen verteidigen zu können. bestand dabei gerade nicht."
