Heldmann, Richard Bernard, writing as "Richard Marsh.
London: Methuen & Co., 1900. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1] 2-312 [note: first leaf is a blank] + 40-page publisher's catalogue dated "February 1900" inserted at rear, original pictorial salmon cloth, front and spine panels stamped in green, cream and black, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First edition. Mixed collection of mystery and weird tales; several effective psychological horror stories including "The Mask," featuring a vampiric homicidal maniac, also "An Experiment" and "A Silent Witness," nightmarish tales of hypnotically induced haunting and catalepsy, respectively. Marsh's tales are shot through with a peculiarly vivid streak of cruelty, nowhere more so than in this collection, which underscores his relentless fatalism very effectively. "... there was a lot more to Marsh than THE BEETLE ... Marsh is an unfairly neglected writer who will repay the effort of getting his books." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 283. Frost, The Monster with a Thousand Faces, p. 56. Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 353. Bleiler (1978), p. 134. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). Glover and Greene, Victorian Detective Fiction 333. Hubin (1994), p. 554. Spine lean, light wear to spine ends, small circular spot on front cover, corner tips bumped, endpapers tanned, a very good copy. A scarce book; Marsh's most elusive collection of short fiction. (#165345)[Attributes: First Edition]

[Women] [Nursing] [Spanish-American War] [Congregation of American Sisters]
Most Cuba or Jacksonville, 1900. Silver gelatin or albumen photographs, various sizes ranging from 3 x 3 to 6 x 8, most captioned to verso. With handwritten manuscript, four leaves, discussing various diseases. The Spanish-American War was the first war in which nurses formed their own dedicated units, as well as the first war in which they were accepted within military hospitals. While no nurses died in battle, 153 died during the war from disease. Nurses were responsible for both treating soldiers as well as maintaining sanitary conditions within the camps. Conditions were often poor, leading some to work until they were too sick to continue.The current collection of photographs documents the experiences of a Mrs. Waters, who was originally from Groton, Massachusetts. The collection begins with a couple early photographs including a portrait as a young woman and a cyanotype of one of Waters' leprosy patients at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. The next section shows Waters' training in Jacksonville, Florida, with either the Fourth or Seventh Army Corps at what was called Camp Cuba Libre (both Corps trained there in 1898). The photographs of Jacksonville show life around the military camp and environs, with some notable photographs of African-American inhabitants of the region. Three photographs, quite notably, show the Congregation of American Sisters, a small group of American Indian nuns led by Reverend Francis Craft. The photographs taken in Cuba are notable for their portrayal of local life. Several photographs of military installations are taken around the "tro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Collection gathering various pieces of a print chronology of Russian and Soviet cinema in the 1900s-1940s. Starting from one pre-revolutionary book (1909), this collection tied the very beginning of cinematography when it considered just an evolution of a static photograph and the middle of the 20th century when Eisenstein shot his last work (1944) and the Soviet engineers had constructed an innovative 625-line model of the first mass Soviet television (1946-1947). It includes 51 items. There are 34 books: monographs, critical works, screenplays, librettos, the only catalogue of Kinoizdat (Kinopechat') publishing house and typewritten engineers' notes. Apart from them, 14 issues of four periodicals, 2 advertising posters and 1 designer's project have been collected. They carry valid information on contemporary silent and sound films, including works by directors Eisenstein, Pudovkin, Vertov and others. Among authors are directors, screenwriters, film historians, camera operator, engineers and artists. Most editions lean to constructivist design: some of them feature works by well-known contributors, including constructivist artist Vialov, pioneer of Soviet animation Vano, and some covers were created by unknown artists. Overall the books are dedicated to the subjects like acting, shooting films (at studio and outside), writing a screenplay, organizing production of any film from the very beginning. Apart from them, we have found handbooks about film lighting and sound effects, about remarkable female actors, about experience exchange with the American movie industry and Sov … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kernmayer - Teilnachlass des Schriftstellers Hans Gustl Kernmayer (1900-1977). „Den letzten Abenteurer unserer Zeit" nannte ihn seine fünfte Frau, die Schriftstellerin Marie Louise Fischer (1922-2005). Hans Gustl Kernmayer wurde am 10. Februar als Sohn eines Fleischhauermeisters in Graz geboren und hatte nach einer missglückten Schulzeit zunächst im Betrieb seiner Eltern das Metzgerhandwerk gelernt. „Zwischendrin war ich Schwimmlehrer, Handelsvertreter, Kohlenhändler, Geschäftsführer und selbstständiger Kaufmann, bis ich Konkurs machte." Als Landstreicher, Pennbruder und Spieler verbrachte er anschließend vier Jahre auf der Straße. „Kamerad Schnürschuh" (1935) hieß der erste Erfolg des Autors, der aus seinen Sympathien für den Nationalsozialismus nie einen Hehl gemacht hatte. Kernmayer wurde aber als „minder belastet" eingestuft und durfte sich ab 1949 wieder als Schriftsteller betätigen. Er verfasste zahlreiche Romane (in einem Nachruf werden 47 gezählt), Kinder- und Jugendbücher, am Ende seines Lebens auch Sachbücher. Franz Josef Strauß kondolierte der Witwe mit folgenden Worten: „Er hat die Höhen und Tiefen des Lebens durchgestanden, verarbeitet und bewältigt. Seine lebensnahen und erfolgreichen Arbeiten haben ihn weit über die Grenzen unseres Landes berühmt und beliebt gemacht, den Menschen wie den Schriftsteller." Vorliegen in 3 Ordnern die Korrespondenz aus den Jahren 1973-1977 und in einem separaten Ordner Nachrufe und Beileidsschreiben. Originale Meist jeweils mehrere Schreiben u. a. von Ernst Achenbach (1909-1991; war an den Judendeportationen aus Paris 1943 betei … [Click Below for Full Description]

Egresado en Filosofía y Letras, ejerció de catedrático en múltiples centros de enseñanza, como la Universidad Central, el Instituto Cardenal Cisneros o la Universidad de Valencia. Su alza a la fama se debe a su monumental obra Gramática y Vocabulario de las obras de Gonzalo de Berceo, que cuenta con más de cuatro mil entradas repartidas en más de mil páginas. Como recompensa por la labor, la obra de Lanchestas fue premiada en público certamen por la Real Academia Española e impresa a sus expensas. Se trata de una pieza útil incluso en la actualidad a la hora de estudiar la obra de Berceo. Lanchestas publicó también otras obras, aunque ninguna tuvo el éxito del presente ejemplar. En opinión de Francisco Abad Nebot, los criterios de Lanchestas como gramático y lingüista son bastante modernos y diacrónicos, lo cual hace de sus trabajos una referencia indispensable a la hora del estudio de la gramática de la lengua castellana. Cuarto mayor (28,7 x 22), pp.: [6] 8-1042 [6]. Encuadernación holandesa en tela posterior roja, combinada con cuero rojo en la lomera. Cinco nervios decorados con puntos dorados. Dos tejuelos de cuero morado con el título de la obra y el nombre del autor impresos en dorado. Primera edición. Rarísima obra del eminente lingüista y medievalista español, Rufino Lanchetas.

1900. [Art nouveau, Modernismo, Wiener Secession, Anonyme], Le livre de la Croix-Rouge. [Madrid, Sucesores de Rivadeneyra, 1900-1903?]. In-4, [247]p. Tome II, seul volume paru et, a priori, tirage unique sur papier japon, destiné aux membres du Comité International de la Croix-Rouge. Etant donné la rareté de cet ouvrage, il est fort probablement qu'en dehors des 5 membres du Comité et du secrétaire de la présidence, personne n'ai eu la possibilité d'acquérir cet ouvrage en français. Il est donc fort probable qu'il n'ait existé que 6 exemplaires en français de cet ouvrage, tous sur papier japon (voir à ce sujet l'article "Le Livre de la Croix-Rouge" publié dans le Bulletin international des Sociétés de la Croix-Rouge, juillet 1903, n°135). En revanche, il semble que l'édition espagnole ait été commercialisée : il existe des exemplaires d'édition avec la couverture reprenant les dessins de Wieland. Six volumes étaient prévus, le tome I devant être publié à la fin afin d'y publier la liste des souscripteurs. L'ouvrage a été édité simultanément en français, espagnol, anglais, allemand et italien. Ce volume concerne les premiers pays : Allemagne, Argentine, Autriche-Hongrie, Belgique & Congo, Bulgarie. Les plats de la reliure, qui sont répétés en gravures en rouge dans l'ouvrage, sont de Hans Beat Wieland (1867-1945), on retrouve ses initiales HB W sur les gravures.

He conveys with tremendous power the majesty and desolation of history, the vanity of pomp and pride, the transitoriness of fame. And he is the poet of contemporary society, keen to discern the false and the corrupt, courageous in denunciation yet with pity for the young and innocent... As a poet he mirrored brilliantly and without distortion an absorbingly interesting world" (Baugh, 1229). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

SHAKESPEARE, William.
London: Printed by Iames Roberts, 1601 [for 1600, recte 1619, but actually c.1900]. Small quarto (202 x 143 mm). Original vellum. Vellum soiled and endpapers stained but both possibly deliberate ageing of binding; two short closed tears to title page and peripheral nicks to first few leaves, contents lightly soiled again in possibly deliberate ageing. A very good copy. A sophisticated facsimile of the 1619 quarto of A Midsummer Night's Dream, the second printing of the play, which bore a false imprint date of 1600 (matching the date for the first quarto); here the date has been carefully replaced with the date 1601, without any evident reason, seeing as no edition was printed that year. The facsimile itself does not bear an edition statement or note of being a facsimile; stylistically it appears to date around the turn of the 20th century. For the original, see ESTC S111174.
