        Materialien der Literatur- und Kunstgesellschaft "PAN". Aus dem Nachlass von Hugo und Rudolf Greinz.

      Linz - Innsbruck, -, 1897 - 1900. - Bei den Materialien handelt es sich offensichtlich um Papiere aus der Gründerzeit der Literatur- und Kunstgesellschaft "PAN" in Linz und in Innsbruck. Die Gründung wurde circa 1897 anvisiert, sodann 1898 realisiert. In diesem Konvulut, aufbewahrt in einer Kladde, überschrieben mit PAN, enthält neben 13 Berichten über die Gründung des Vereins in damaligen Tageszeitungen (z. Teil sehr ausführlich) auch die handschriftlichen Notizen (zum Teil in Stenographie) über die zukünftigen Mitglieder, weiters die gedruckten Statuten von Innsbruck und Linz, daneben Einladungen zu Festivitäten und die Kassagebarung, dann Grußbotschaften, Kartengrüße, Briefe und erste Rezensionen (Seebach). Der handschriftliche Teil besteht aus circa 46 Blatt und bezieht sich nur auf den Verein "PAN". Diese Materialien sind unerschlossen und stellen ein wichtiges Bindeglied der literarischen Vernetzung in Österreich dar, deren Bedeutung sich rund um die Zeitschrift "Der Brenner" und "Föhn" spiegelte. Die Namen lesen sich wie ein "who is who" des literarischen und künstlerischen "Jung-Tirol". - Unikat!

Later impression of the First Edition of the so-called "Acting Edition", containing an unrevised text ! This one sown, not wired. Barely any of these Textbooks survived. [The Dramatic Works of Oscar Wilde]. The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ in order to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Contemporary reviews all praised the play's humour, though some were cautious about its explicit lack of social messages, while others foresaw the modern consensus that it was the culmination of Wilde's artistic career so far. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play. The successful opening night marked the climax of Wilde's career but also heralded his downfall. The Marquess of Queensberry, whose son Lord Alfred Douglas was Wilde's lover, planned to present the writer with a bouquet of rotten vegetables and disrupt the show. Wilde was tipped off and Queensberry was refused admission. Soon afterwards their feud came to a climax in court, where Wilde's homosexual double life was revealed to the Victorian public and he was eventually sentenced to imprisonment. His notoriety caused the play, despite its early success, to be closed after 86 performances. After his release, he published the play from exile in Paris, but he wrote no further comic or dramatic work. After the success of Wilde's plays Lady Windermere's Fan and A Woman of No Importance, Wilde's producers urged him to write further plays. In July 1894 he mooted his idea for The Importance of Being Earnest to George Alexander, the actor-manager of the St James's Theatre. Wilde summered with his family at Worthing, where he wrote the play quickly in August. His fame now at its peak, he used the working title Lady Lancing to avoid pre-emptive speculation of its content. Many names and ideas in the play were borrowed from people or places the author had known; Lady Queensberry, Lord Alfred Douglas's mother, for example, lived at Bracknell. There is widespread agreement among Wilde scholars that the most important influence on the play was W. S. Gilbert's 1877 farce Engaged; Wilde borrowed from Gilbert not only several incidents but, in Russell Jackson's phrase "the gravity of tone demanded by Gilbert of his actors". Wilde continually revised the text over the next months: no line was left untouched, and "in a play so economical with its language and effects, [the revisions] had serious consequences". Sos Eltis describes Wilde's revisions as a refined art at work: the earliest, longest handwritten drafts of the play labour over farcical incidents, broad puns, nonsense dialogue and conventional c

Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play.nnThe successful opening night marked the climax of Wilde's career but also heralded his downfall. The Marquess of Queensberry, whose son Lord Alfred Douglas was Wilde's lover, planned to present the writer with a bouquet of rotten vegetables and disrupt the show. Wilde was tipped off and Queensberry was refused admission.

His notoriety caused the play, despite its early success, to be closed after 86 performances. After his release, he published the play from exile in Paris, but he wrote no further comic or dramatic work. nnAfter the success of Wilde's plays Lady Windermere's Fan and A Woman of No Importance, Wilde's producers urged him to write further plays. In July 1894 he mooted his idea for The Importance of Being Earnest to George Alexander, the actor-manager of the St James's Theatre. Wilde summered with his family at Worthing, where he wrote the play quickly in August. His fame now at its peak, he used the working title Lady Lancing to avoid pre-emptive speculation of its content. Many names and ideas in the play were borrowed from people or places the author had known; Lady Queensberry, Lord Alfred Douglas's mother, for example, lived at Bracknell. There is widespread agreement among Wilde scholars that the most important influence on the play was W. S. Gilbert's 1877 farce Engaged; Wilde borrowed from Gilbert not only several incidents but, in Russell Jackson's phrase "the gravity of tone demanded by Gilbert of his actors".nnWilde continually revised the text over the next months: no line was left untouched, and "in a play so economical with its language and effects, [the revisions] had serious consequences". Sos Eltis describes Wilde's revisions as a refined art at work: the earliest, longest handwritten drafts of the play labour over farcical incidents, broad puns, nonsense dialogue and conventional comic turns. In revising as he did, "Wilde transformed standard nonsense into the more systemic and disconcerting illogicality which characterises Earnest's dialogue". Richard Ellmann argues that Wilde had reached his artistic maturity and wrote this work more surely and rapidly than before.nnWilde hesitated about submitting the script to Alexander, worrying that it might be unsuitable for the St James's Theatre, whose typical repertoire was relatively serious, and explaining that it had been written in response to a request for a play "with no real serious interest". When Henry James's Guy Domville failed, Alexander turned to Wilde and agreed to put on his play. Alexander began his usual meticulous preparations, interrogating the author on each line and planning stage movements with a toy theatre. In the course of these rehearsals Alexander asked Wilde to shorten the play from four acts to three. Wilde agreed and combined elements of the second and third acts. The largest cut was the removal of the character of Mr. Gribsby, a solicitor who comes from London to arrest the profligate "Ernest" (i.e., Jack) for his unpaid dining bills. Algernon, who is posing as "Ernest", will be led away to Holloway Jail unless he settles his accounts immediately. Jack finally agrees to pay for Ernest, everyone thinking that it is Algernon's bill when in fact it is his own. The four-act version was first played on the radio in a BBC production and is still sometimes performed. Peter Raby argues that the three-act structure is more effective, and that the shorter original text is more theatrically resonant than the expanded published edition.nThe play was first produced at the St James's Theatre on Valentine's Day 1895. It was freezing cold but Wilde arrived dressed in "florid sobriety", wearing a green carnation. The audience, according to one report, "included many members of the great and good, former cabinet ministers and privy councillors, as well as actors, writers, academics, and enthusiasts". Allan Aynesworth, who played Algernon Moncrieff, recalled to Hesketh Pearson that "In my fifty-three years of acting, I never remember a greater triumph than [that] first night". Aynesworth was himself "debonair and stylish", and Alexander, who played Jack Worthing, "demure".nThe Marquess of Queensberry, the father of Wilde's lover Lord Alfred Douglas (who was on holiday in Algiers at the time), had planned to disrupt the play by throwing a bouquet of rotten vegetables at the playwright when he took his bow at the end of the show. Wilde and Alexander learned of the plan, and the latter cancelled Queensberry's ticket and arranged for policemen to bar his entrance. Nevertheless, he continued harassing Wilde, who eventually launched a private prosecution against the peer for criminal libel, triggering a series of trials ending in Wilde's imprisonment for gross indecency. Alexander tried, unsuccessfully, to save the production by removing Wilde's name from the billing, but the play had to close after only 86 performances.nnThe play's original Broadway production opened at the Empire Theatre on 22 April 1895, but closed after sixteen performances. Its cast included William Faversham as Algy, Henry Miller as Jack, Viola Allen as Gwendolen, and Ida Vernon as Lady Bracknell. The Australian premiere was in Melbourne on 10 August 1895, presented by Dion Boucicault, Jr. and Robert Brough, and the play was an immediate success. Wilde's downfall in England did not affect the popularity of his plays in Australia.nnWilde's two final comedies, An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest, were still on stage in London at the time of his prosecution, and they were soon closed as the details of his case became public. After two years in prison with hard labour, Wilde went into exile in Paris, sick and depressed, his reputation destroyed in England. In 1898, when no-one else would, Leonard Smithers agreed with Wilde to publish the two final plays. Wilde proved to be a diligent reviser, sending detailed instructions on stage directions, character listings and the presentation of the book, and insisting that a playbill from the first performance be reproduced inside. Ellmann argues that the proofs show a man "very much in command of himself and of the play". Wilde's name did not appear on the cover, it was "By the Author of Lady Windermere's Fan". His return to work was brief though, as he refused to write anything else, "I can write, but have lost the joy of writing". (Wikipedia)

        Ten Little Niggers

      Bo-Peep Series, 1900. Soft Cover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. An uncommon edition of this classic racist nursery rhyme. Complete with twelve colorful lithographs (one double-page) along with music and lyrics. Old, neatly done, thread and paper reinforcement to the spine. Minor wear and light soiling; faint dampstain at the top margin of several leaves. The song was originally written in 1868 by Septimus Winner as a minstrel number, titled "Ten Little Injuns." A year later, Frank Green re-wrote the lyrics as "Ten Little Niggers," in which a number of "nigger boys" meet unusual, violent deaths, one-by-one. In 1875, the McLoughlin Brothers first published Green's version as a children's book, and the song became a very popular nursery rhyme. In 1894, McLoughlin revised the lyrics so that rather than dying, the last "nigger boy" grows up, marries, and lives a happy life with his wife. (see Anderson, "Ten Little Niggers: The Making of a Black Man's Consciousness.") This edition of the rhyme includes the revised lyrics with illustrations of the marriage and the happy couple. Rather scarce; as of 2016, OCLC shows no copies of this edition held by institutions, ABPC and Rare Book Hub show no auction records, there is one copy for sale in the trade.

        RARE AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY THE CLASSICAL PIANIST MARGUERITE LABORI TO THE WIFE OF MAJOR POND.

      Villers sur mer, France, [1900].. [1900].. Very good. - Four pages, 5-1/4 inches high by 4-1/8 inches wide. Approximately 150 words penned on four sides of a folded sheet of creamy white paper, addressed to the wife of the American lecture manager and impressario James B. Pond. The pianist Marguerite Labori expresses her pleasure that Mrs. Pond had "such a pleasant stay on the Continent" and regrets that she didn't get to see her. Major Pond had likely invited her second husband, famous for his defense of Dreyfus and Zola, to return for a tour of America as she goes on to say that her husband "thanks Major Pond for his offer to come back again to see him, but at present he would not be able to make any plans for a trip to America." She does offer hope though "But we do hope to make up our minds to go to the States within the next year, & if this desire is realized we shall let you know...." Signed "Marguerite Labori". Folded once for mailing. Very good with the original postmarked mailing envelope. <p>Born Maggie Okey in Australia, the classical pianist & composer Marguerite Labori (1864-1952) toured with her first husband, the celebrated pianist Vladimir de Pachmann. Following her second marriage to the attorney Fernand-Gustave-Gaston Labori who was famous for his defense of Zola and Alfred Dreyfus, she turned to composing. She achieved distinction as a composer with her Piano Concerto in F minor.<p>A RARE autograph.

A wonderful binding by Riviere in full brown goatskin, both covers tooled in gilt with a unique all-over heavy gilt design consisting of a border of a fillet and intertwining gouges, with stems formed by gouges and fillets issuing inwards with closed flower heads. As well, there are twelve magnificent open flower-heads running longitudinally at the center. The central panel of twelve flower heads is most aesthetically pleasing. The spine is divided into six panels with gilt compartments, lettered in the second and dated at the foot, the others with stems and small flower-heads, the edges of the boards tooled with a repeated dot, the turn-ins with two gilt fillets, marbled endleaves, top edge gilt, the others untrimmed. The bindings is signed with Riviere's gilt pallet on lower front turn-in; as well, there is an inked pallet of Henry Sotheran on the top front fly, who may have commissioned the binding from Riviere. The binding is fine. An unusual and scarce publication, the colophon reads: "Of this Edition Five Hundred Copies were Printed by The Bankside Press and are Offered for Sale by M. F. Mansfield, New York, September, MDCCCC", and beneath this is an ink inscription "This is No.8 of 100 copies reserved for Great Britain."

        Ten Little Niggers

      Bo-Peep Series, 1900. Soft Cover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. An uncommon edition of this classic racist nursery rhyme. Complete with twelve colorful lithographs (one double-page) along with music and lyrics. Old, neatly done, thread and paper reinforcement to the spine. Minor wear and light soiling; faint dampstain at the top margin of several leaves. The song was originally written in 1868 by Septimus Winner as a minstrel number, titled "Ten Little Injuns." A year later, Frank Green re-wrote the lyrics as "Ten Little Niggers," in which a number of "nigger boys" meet unusual, violent deaths, one-by-one. In 1875, the McLoughlin Brothers first published Green's version as a children's book, and the song became a very popular nursery rhyme. In 1894, McLoughlin revised the lyrics so that rather than dying, the last "nigger boy" grows up, marries, and lives a happy life with his wife. (see Anderson, "Ten Little Niggers: The Making of a Black Man's Consciousness.") This edition of the rhyme includes the revised lyrics with illustrations of the marriage and the happy couple. Rather scarce; as of 2016, OCLC shows no copies of this edition held by institutions, ABPC and Rare Book Hub show no auction records, there is one copy for sale in the trade.

        Elementary Brushwork Studies.

      London/Liverpool, George Philip & Son (& Nephew), 1900. - Oblong Quarto. 11 pages of text and XXIV plates with explanations. 4 pages in the rear: "List of Materials for Brushwork, specially selected and approved by Miss Yeats" as well as advertising for othe rpublications by Miss Yeats. Original Hardcover (brown cloth with lettering to front cover). Extraordinarily excellent condition with only minor signs of wear (corners slightly bumped). Interior fresh and bright. Titlepage and second page with minor folding signs. Wonderful and rare publication ! Elizabeth Corbet Yeats (11 March 1868 &#150; 16 January 1940), known as Lolly, was born at 23 Fitzroy Road, London. She was the daughter of the Irish artist John Butler Yeats and sister of W. B., Jack and Susan Mary "Lily" Yeats. She trained and worked as an art teacher and was a member of William Morris's circle in London before her family returned to Dublin in 1900. Yeats wrote and created the artwork for "Elementary Brush-Work Studies" (published in 1900), an educational book that teaches young children the technique of painting flowers and plants using her simple method. At the suggestion of Emery Walker, who worked with Morris on the Kelmscott Press, Yeats studied printing with the Women's Printing Society in London. In Dublin, she accepted the invitation to join Evelyn Gleeson to form the Dun Emer Guild along with Lily, who was an embroiderer. Yeats managed the Dun Emer Press from 1902. The Press was located at Runnymede, the house of Evelyn Gleeson. (This house, located in Dundrum, was later renamed Dun Emer. It has since been demolished.) This was set up with the intention of training young women in bookbinding and printing. In 1908, she and her brother William started the Cuala Press, publishing over 70 books including 48 by the poet. Yeats was the first commercial printer in Ireland to work exclusively with hand presses. (Wikipedia)

        Bambi and Mother at a Waterfall

      Sussex, England: circa late 1940s-early1950s. Oil on Winsor and Newton's "Rathbone" Canvas board. 16 x 12 inches. Signed lower right. Osmond was born on 6 May 1900 in Orford, Suffolk, the son of the Rev. Percy Herbert Osmond (a clergyman with the Church of England) and his wife, Agnes Paulina (née Sadler), and grew up in Surrey where his father was appointed to the vicarage of Ewshot, near Farnham, in 1906. Osmond was educated privately and, from 1917, studied at Regent Street Polytechnic, earning his Art Teacher's Diploma and a Diploma in Art History in 1924. He taught part-time at Hastings College of Technology, Sussex, and at Hornsey College of Art whilst exhibiting his work, primarily painting in oils and illustrations in wash and line. Osmond was married to Constance M. Biggs, a sculpter who also exhibited at the Royal Academy, in 1927 and turned freelance in 1928, contributing illustrations to Hutchinson' Pie and to books, including a Reader's Library edition of Black Beauty (1932). He began writing and illustrating his own books in the early 1950s, the first of which, A Valley Grows Up, was published by the Oxford University Press in 1953. It went on to win the Carnegie Medal for the year's most outstanding children's book in 1954. That same year, Osmond began writing and illustrating the Animals of the World series for Oxford University Press (1954-57) which were widely praised for their depth and detail. Osmond subsequently wrote and illustrated a wide variety of books, including From Drumbeat to Tickertape (1960), a study of communication, The Artist in Britain, from the eighth to the twentieth century (1961), and Exploring Fashions and Fabrics (1967). He continued to produce popular books on animals and the peoples of other lands as well as illustrating The Thames Flows Down (1957), written by his wife under the pen-name Laurie Osmond. Osmond was a member of the Society of Industrial Artists and the Society of Authors. His death was registered in Lewes, E. Sussex, in 1981. (

      Vicinity of Green Bay, Wisconsin, 1900. Photograph album. Very good. 72 photographs (2.5" x 4") affixed to 18 thick cardboard leaves in a 5.25" x 7.25" album titled "The Kodak Book" in gilt. 71 of the photographs are 2.5" x 4"; one is approximately 3.5" x 4.5". The photographs are all in nice shape, some with a little light scuffing. The album has some minor wear.

Three show two men logrolling. The other photographs show houses, a lake, children with deer, dogs, family members, flowering bushes, horse-drawn buggies or carts, and the building with the Hagemeister sign.

        Bakers & Confectioners Supplies; jams, jellies, preserves and pie filling; New England Pulverizing Sugar Works.[Cover title]

      Boston: C.B. Webster & Co, 1900. Octavo, 194, [1] pages. Illustrated. Index. First and only edition. A very attractive trade catalogue for a producer of the ingredients used by bakers: superfine sugar, pie fillings, etc., and a distributor of the equipment of baking made by numerous companies. Middleby started about 1874, not opening his first shop, on State Street, until 1877. By the time of this catalogue, the company was selling a broad array of specialty supplies and equipment for soda fountains and ice cream shops as well as bakeries and confectioners. Included are descriptions and illustrations of thousands of items, including peanut roasters, candy molds, wedding cake stands and decorations, oven equipment, oils and extracts, etc. This company is not to be confused with the Middleby Corp. of Chicago, which also made and sold industrial baking equipment, and which still exists today. Some age toning; in original four-color printed, illustrated wrappers. A bit of wear to the head and foot of spine, otherwise near fine. Rare. [OCLC locates no copies; not in Romaine].

      Lithografie, reclame affiche voor Milanaise haarpoeder, kleurendruk met goud, vervaardigd te Parijs rond 1900 door Albert ?mile Artigue.Ook in Nederland en Vlaanderen wordt voor dit roze poeder reclame gemaakt: ?De Milanaise doet Luizen, Neetelen, Pellekens, Vuiligheid en ziekten der Schedelhuid verdwijnen. Zij is noodzakelijk aan alle huismoeders. De Milanaise zuivert, versterkt en verschoont het haar der kinderen en der groote menschen. Zij is zonder nadeel en zonder het minste gevaar. De Milanaise geeft buigzaamheid, glans en schoonheid aan het haar en belet het haar der jonge meisjes te breken.??Albert ?mile Artigue (1850-1927) was schilder, graveur en lithograaf. Van 1875 tot 1901 exposeerde hij regelmatig in de Salon de Paris en de Salon des Artistes Fran?ais en in M?nchen in 1901. In 1890 kreeg hij te Parijs een eervolle vermelding .Het affiche Milanaise werd gemaakt in de hoogtijdagen van de Art Nouveau. De sierlijke lijnen, frisse pastelkleuren en weelderige motieven in de weergave van sensuele vrouwen, werden de iconen van het fin de si?cle. De natuur wordt gezien als belangrijkste inspiratiebron, gracieus gestileerde planten en bloemen worden ervaren in ongemengde kleuren in vlakken die duidelijk door lijnen van elkaar zijn gescheiden.Prijs: ?2.150,- (incl. lijst).
