        Ubu enchaîné précédé de Ubu roi

      1900. Editions de la Revue Blanche, Paris 1900, 12x18,5cm, relié. - Editions de la Revue Blanche, Paris 1900, 12x18,5cm, relié. - Parzialmente edizione originale, una copia del servizio stampa. Binding ... autografo firmato Alfred Jarry Leo Marche che ha scritto molte monete per il teatro Grand Guignol e particolarmente adatto alla fase "L'08:47 treno Courteline o" Tartarin delle Alpi "di Alphonse Daudet. Dos restaurato, una macchia gialla in piedi piatti. [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition en partie originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Reliure en demi maroquin bleu marine, dos lisse, plats de papier à motifs géométrique, reliure signée Devauchelle. Envoi autographe signé d'Alfred Jarry à Léo Marchès, auteur de nombreuses saynètes pour le théâtre du Grand-Guignol - que Jarry fréquentait. Ainsi, les deux hommes ont en commun l'amour du guignol et il n'est pas inutile à cet égard de rappeler que la première version d'Ubu Roi en 1888 au Théâtre des Phynances était un spectacle de marionnettes. En offrant ce texte à Marchès, Jarry sait qu'il appréciera à sa juste mesure ce personnage « né d'un modèle vivant, symbolisé par des caricatures de potaches, animé par les marionnettes du Théâtre des Phynances, [...] avant de terminer sa carrière véritablement ''personnifié'' par Jarry, sans perdre pour autant son côté guignolesque » (Michel Vaïs, L'écrivain scénique, p. 57). Rare témoignage des échanges entre ces deux agitateurs de marionnettes.

        Autographe original, L' acteur français Coquelin

      1900 - Photographie,Planche originale ayant servie de maquette au livre de Lu (Lefevre Utile) sur les contemporains célébres, provenance directe de l'éditeur, autographe manuscrit et photographie originale. Coquelin was born in Boulogne-sur-Mer, Pas-de-Calais. He was originally intended to follow his father's trade of baker (he was once called "un boulanger manqué" by a hostile critic), but his love of acting led him to the Conservatoire, where he entered Régnier's class in 1859. He won the first prize for comedy within a year, and made his début on 7 December 1860 at the Comédie-Française as the comic valet, Gros-René, in Molière's Le Dépit amoureux, but his first great success was as Figaro in The Barber of Seville, in the following year. It was an honor for Coquelin to be a part of the Comédie-Française at such a young age. This company had already been in existence for around 150 years. He was made sociétaire in 1864. There were 21 3?4 shares and they were divided among the lead actors, known as societaires. The societaires co-manage, choose plays, and share profits. When there was an opening caused by retirement, resignation, or death, it was filled by a member of the pensionnaires. And just four years after joining the Comédie-Française, Coquelin became one of the elite societaires. During the next twenty-two years he created at the Comédie Française the leading parts in forty-four new plays, including Théodore de Banville's Gringoire (1867), Paul Ferrier's Tabarin (1871), Émile Augier's Paul Forestier (1871), L'Étrangère (1876) by the younger Dumas, Charles Lomon's Jean Dacier (1877), Édouard Pailleron's Le Monde où l'on s'ennuie (1881), Erckmann and Chatrian's Les Rantzau (1884). In consequence of a dispute with the authorities over the question of his right to make provincial tours in France he resigned in 1886. Three years later, however, the breach was healed; and after a successful series of tours in Europe and the United States he rejoined the Comédie-Française as pensionnaire in 1890.[2] During his time away from the Comédie he wrote his book Art and the Actor. It was during this period that he took the part of Labussière, in the production of Victorien Sardou's Thermidor, which was interdicted by the government after three performances. In 1892 he broke definitely with the Comédie-Française, and toured for some time through the capitals of Europe with a company of his own; in New York, for instance, he performed at Abbey's Theatre in 1894, playing the lead in Tartuffe (his son Jean played Orgon) and Mascarille in Les Précieuses ridicules.[3] In 1895 he joined the Renaissance theatre in Paris, and played there until he became director of the Théâtre de la Porte Saint-Martin in 1897. Here he won successes in Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac (1897), which he repeated in the summer of 1898 at the Lyceum Theatre, London, Émile Bergerat's Plus que reine (1899), Catulle Mendès's Scarron (1905), and Alfred Capus and Lucien Descaves' L'Attentat (1906). In 1900 Coquelin toured in America with Sarah Bernhardt, appeared on Broadway's Garden Theatre in a production of Cyrano de Bergerac (Bernhardt played Roxane).[4] He made his only film, the duel scene from Cyrano de Bergerac with sound recording on phonograph cylinder (see also Sound film/Early steps). The film is thought to be the first ever made with both color and sound. On their return to France he continued with his old colleague to appear in L'Aiglon, at the Théâtre Sarah Bernhardt. He was rehearsing for the creation of the leading part in Rostand's Chantecler, which he was to produce, when he died suddenly in Paris in 1909.[2] The New York Times printed an obituary, in which it described many tributes to the dead actor, including a visit by the personal secretary of the President of the Republic, Armand Fallières. // Circa 1900 // Tirage albuminé // Format (cm): 22x31cm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [RUSSIA - NORTH CAUCASUS] [Collection of Eighteen Original Albumen Photographs of Kislovodsk, Pyatigorsk, Zheleznovodsk, and the Georgian Military Road from the Series "Views of the Caucasus"]

L'auteur était commissaire-adjoint du Japon à l'Exposition universelle de 1900 et chargé du service industriel du Ministère de l'Agriculture et du commerce. "L’auteur peut se prévaloir d’une double expérience. Il a été chargé du service industriel au sein du ministère de l’Agriculture et du Commerce. A ce titre, il a participé à la rédaction d’un projet de loi ouvrière dont il analyse le contenu. Il a en outre été nommé commissaire adjoint du Japon pour l’exposition universelle de 1900 qui se tient à Paris dont il escompte qu’elle ‘permettra au Japon de se montrer sous son vrai jour’ (.). Dans cet ouvrage, Kashiro Saïto dresse un tableau de la situation économique et sociale de son pays et expose des vues plus personnelles. Il relève notamment: ‘Une législation ouvrière s’impose, au Japon, soit au point de vue de l’intérêt public, soit au point de vue de l’intérêt privé ( )’. La première publication en langue française spécifiquement consacrée à la question de la législation ouvrière au Japon" (cf. F. Lekéal, ‘Regards croisés sur la législation ouvrière au Japon’, colloque franco-japonais organisé par le Centre d’Histoire Judiciaire (Lille 2) et la division du Chubu de l’Association japonaise d’histoire du droit, janvier 2014, Université de Nagoya).

The first publication of Nikola Tesla's photographically illustrated work "The Problem of Increasing Human Energy, With Special Reference to the Harnessing of the Sun's Energy" and with "Illustrated by the Writer's Electrical Experiments, Now First Published" stated both immediately under his name at head of title and in the table of contents. Three-quarter leather with brown cloth over boards, large 8vo (9-5/16 inches tall), pp. viii (index to Vol. LX), 960, 86 (ads), illustrated throughout. Six consecutive issues, all bound with front covers - but lacking back covers and terminal ads from all except the final issue. Volume leather dry and worn, joints completely cracked, both hinges stregthened with an archival linen repair, light ex-library with a library rubber stamp to foot of text block edge, front pastedown and "withdrawal" stamp to ffep, text block slightly toned, marginally trimmed with an occasional soil spot or repaired tear noted. Both the Tesla article and it's front cover (Vol. XL No. 2) are clean and unmarked. An important and long essay by Tesla, who presents here (pp. 175-211) the first practical telautomation, many new energy-related experiments and muses "The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter - for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes with the poet..." - most certainly an uncommon genius, within an uncommon man.

        STEEL MAKING WOODCUTS

      A collection of 15 woodcuts showing various stages of the steel making process. A few tiny holes to the later pages and rear cover, otherwise in excellent order. A striking collection. Scarce. No copy located on Worldcat or COPAC. Viva Talbot (1900-1983) was a talented amateur artist who specialised in wood engraving. She knew many of the prominent wood engravers of the 1920s and 1930s, including Robert Gibbings, from whom she may have had some tuition. Her father, Benjamin Talbot (1864-1947), was the inventor of the Talbot Tilting Furnace which transformed the open hearth method of producing steel. He was involved in iron companies in Middlesbrough and Stockton and hence Viva, unusually for a woman of that era, had access to the steelworks. Viva Talbot married Thomas Nussey in 1941, and within a few years she became Lady Nussey when Thomas inherited a baronetcy from his father. Viva's work remained largely undiscovered until 2006 when Dr Joan Heggie of the University of Teesside came across her steel making woodcuts in the British Steel Collection at the Teesside archives. These works and others by the artist became the subject of an exhibition at the Dorman Museum, Middlesbrough in 2010.

        The Burlington Route Runs Daily Through Trains Between Chicago, Peoria, or St. Louis.

      Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad / Rand, McNally & Co. Chicago. No date. Early 1900s? - Color map, 27 3/4 x 44 inches on sheet 29 x 45 1/2 inches. Was originally issued as a wall map on rollers, which have been removed to have it professionally mounted on linen. Vertical tear across the centre of the map, neatly joined in the main body of the United States, but visible in the lower centre area of ocean, other minor repaired edge tears, toning to edges and light toning to a band along the bottom of the map. Professional restoration has made it an eminently displayable map. There are three attractive engraved vignettes at lower left, showing the interiors of the cars: "Interior View of Pullman Palace Sleeping Car Running on the Burlington Route"; "Interior View of Burlington Route Passenger Chair Car"; "Interior View of Burlington Route Dining Car." The vignettes suggest a late 1800s date for the map. The wall sized map shows the Burlington Route with its extensive connections. An interesting independently issued railroad map.
