Musgrave Francis (d. 1931, Chairman of Addenbrooke's Hospital General Committee 1923-1931; presentation inscription on front free endpaper 'T. Musgrave Francis with the good wishes of The Author?).First edition. Born in England to an aristocratic French father and an English mother, de Satgé (1836-1906) was educated at Rugby School. In 1853 he embarked in Melbourne and was appointed a Clerk in the Goldfields' Commission, through the good offices of Charles La Trobe. Following a position as a parliamentary clerk, de Satgé decided to gain pastoral experience by joining his brother at cattle stations on the Darling Downs, and this marked the beginning of a successful career in the booming livestock businesses of the continent; he invested in a series of cattle stations, which were then developed and sold on very profitably. De Satgé also pursued a political career, and '[i]n the Queensland Legislative Assembly [he] had represented Clermont in 1869-70 and 1870-72, Normanby in 1873-77 and Mitchell in 1881-82. First elected as a squatters' delegate to pass the 1869 pastoral leases bill, his superior social position, his comprehensive knowledge of the problems of the central and western Queensland squatters and his successful role as a Clermont "roads and bridges" politician made him an effective pastoral leader. "These", as he later nostalgically asserted, were "the good old days when squatting constituencies returned representatives interested in the pursuit instead of Radicals ready to wage war against capital"' (ADB). In 1882 de Satgé retired to England, and, apart from visits to Australia in 1883, 1888 and 1893 to inspect his properties, he remained in Britain and wrote the autobiographical Pages from the Journal of a Queensland Squatter, which spans thirty years and describes the growth for the country from a time when 'the goldfields [were] in full swing [and] [t]he Australian colonies did not carry [.] one-fifth of their present population. Railways were only commencing to be thought of; agriculture and its kindred industries were confined to the wants of the growing population; fencing for pastoral purposes was unknown; Victorian vineyards were still unplanted' (p. 1) to the late nineteenth century. The ADB comments that de Satgé's 'valuable and racy reminiscences, Pages from the Journal of a Queensland Squatter [.] reveal him as an able and shrewd pastoralist with much practical and financial skill'.

        Hassall, John - Henley rowing regatta.

      Feestelijkheden ter gelegenheid van de Henley Regatta op de Theems. Kleurenlithografie uit 1901 door John Hassall (1868-1948). Afm. afbeelding: ca. 46 x 66 cm Hassall maakte werken voor verschillende Britse kranten en is in Engeland een van de bekendste affichetekenaars. In zijn sterke contouren wordt hij beïnvloed door de Japanse prentkunst.. De Henley Regatta werd voor het eerst gehouden in 1839 en wordt, behalve tijdens de wereldoorlogen, sindsdien ieder jaar gehouden. De afbeelding van de prent komt uit de tijd dat ´Henley´ met name nog een publieksattractie met een funfair is, georganiseerd door de burgemeester en de bevolking van Henley. Pas later kwam de nadruk op het wedstrijd amateur roeien te liggen. Tegenwoordig is de Royal Regatta een vijfdaags evenement. Price: € 1.850,- (excl. VAT/BTW, incl. frame).

Brief m. U. Meiningen 21. u. 22.I.1901. 4 S. 4°. Büttenpapier mit Briefkopf "Intendanz der Herzoglichen Hofkapelle Meiningen".

". Die Halle soll zumeist zur Abhaltung der Landesmusikfeste in regelmäßigen Zwischenräumen von 2 Jahren dienen . Am Hof muß die Halle jederzeit zur freien Verfügung stehen. Umgekehrt ließe sich vielleicht ein Abkommen treffen, wonach zur Abhaltung am Landesmusikfeste die Mitwirkung der herzogl. Hofkapelle . wird . (Steinbach) ; "Heute für alle zukünftigen Tage ein solches Abkommen zu treffen, ist kostspielig. Es wäre ja denkbar, daß einmal die Kapelle aufgelöst werden müßte oder auch wir, daß einem meinem Nachfolger die Musike ein Dorn ins Auge wären (Herzog) . - Sehr interessantes Zeitdokument der Musikgeschichte um die Jahrhundertwende in Deutschland.

Flyleaf with title design embossed in blind. Bound in original printed wrappers with floral designs and titles in gilt. Housed in flexible leather portfolio with gilt cover title. "Mucha's designs, like Grasset's, are sometimes narrative, sometimes decorative, but his human figures are more elegant and graceful than his predecessor's, and his decorations are Byzantine and Czech in style rather than Gothic. Though his ornaments are replete with intricate symbolism, he doesn't fail to do full justice to the human interest of this tale of the refined and melancholy Jaufre who at last attains the love of the 'distant princess' of his dreams.... John Lewis... calls Mucha's complex creation the most representative of all Art Nouveau books. It is also among the most attractive." ... It is one of the most intricate of all Art Nouveau book designs." Ray. French. No. 366.

Manuscript minute book for the Reading Rifle Club, established in 1900, containing all particulars of its growing membership, annual shooting programs and competitions, rules and regulations, financial statements, and the like, recorded in various hands over the years and containing several original signatures. A few of the club's printed documents, some manuscript letters from members, and newspaper clippings are tipped in. Together with a printed pocketsize 9 page handbook of the club's rules. 8vo. 218 pages on watermarked lined paper. Half calf over dark teal cloth boards titled in gilt to spine, original marbled endpapers, bookbinder's label to front pastedown. Endpapers reinforced at seam, otherwise in very good condition, a most interesting volume dealing with shooting as a sanctioned pastime. A fine example of a pre-war shooting club, nineteenth century firearms etiquette, and freedom to enjoy skilled gunnery competition. Gaining popularity and new members every year from its opening season, the Reading Rifle Club appears to have been most diligently managed, every one of its meetings being recorded in this manuscript minute book. Entries are wide-ranging in subject matter, some topics up for discussion being entrance fees and prizes, monthly competitions, an annual challenge cup, subscriptions, nominations and elections for leadership and administrative posts, expenses and receipts, ammunition purchases, firearms kept onsite, new members, annual shooting programs and competitions, rules and protocol, scoring, handicapping, dividing competitors into classes, the daily pay rate for the range warden, special use of the firing range, and so forth. Meetings were very regular from the turn of the century until 1914, then reduced rather abruptly owing to the Great War, during which time most of the members would have been in service, putting their shooting skills to practical use. Many captains are named as members, being of the British Army or the Royal Navy, many surely being attached to the pre-First World War Berkshire Yeomanry. Further research may find some notable persons. Being a legitimate and accredited pastime promoting honest and skilful competition, the member roll also included reverends. [In 2009 the National Rifle Association of the United Kingdom celebrated its 150th Anniversary. Today the association is primarily concerned with civilian full-bore target rifle shooting, although retaining its military heritage and close links with the British Armed Forces. Similarly, the Reading Rifle Club would have attracted Captains and Colonels of the Royal Armed Forces.] Incidences of special interest include experimentation with a patent target machine, a disconcerting matter of irregular entries on a score card, possible embezzlement of subscription money, a shooter having an epileptic seizure, and a proposal for establishing a summer camp at Clacton-on-Sea together with the Colchester Rifle Club. We also find occasional mention of Churn Camp, which was at the time in Berkshire, and another popular place for men of the Berkshire Yeomanry. Indeed a pastime requiring fastidious safety monitoring and honorable sportsmanship, frequent mention is made of the governing body of full bore rifle and pistol shooting sports, the National Rifle Association (NRA), which had been founded only forty years earlier in 1859. The Reading Rifle Club was affiliated to it. [The National Rifle Association was based at Putney Heath & Wimbledon Common, in south-west London, 12 years before its better known American cousin.] . Very Good.

      UNDER THE ROOF OF BLUE IONIAN WEATHERHeliogravure uit 1901 uitgegeven door Arthur Tooth & Sons. naar het gelijknamige schilderij (Opus CCCLXIII) van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 35 x 82,5 cm.Aristocratische meisjes en hun mannelijke begeleider luisteren naar een fluitist. Inspiratie voor de titel van het werk vond Alma-Tadema in een brief van de beroemde Engelse dichter Percy Bysshe Shelley: "We watched the ocean and sky together, under the roof of blue Italian weather'. Shelley (1792 - 1822) gold als idool voor de groep Victoriaanse en Pre-Raphaëlitische kunstenaars.Een kunstrecensent zei na het gereedkomen van het schilderij: "Its colour is so equisite and dainty; its composition and arrangement so consummately learned, whether as to perspective, linear and aerial, tone and atmosphere, and reflected lights; and the drawings of the figures and the painting of the flesh so admirable that this picture may be pronounced in some qualities superior to, or more attractive than anything the master has producted before.' Prijs: € 3.150,- (incl. lijst).

Brinkley (1841-1912) was editor of The Japan mail and resided in Japan for over 40 years during the Meiji era (1868-1912), an era characterized by Japan's opening to Western ideas and technology. He encountered the changes during this period and wrote numerous books about Japanese history and culture relating to the Japan of his day, as well as an English-Japanese dictionary. Whilst visiting Nagasaki, he saw a samurai fight, and was so impressed by the warrior's conduct that he decided to settle permanently in Japan. Eight of the twelve volumes deal with Japan, the other four volumes are devoted China. The text is illustrated with numerous plates, displaying photographs of architecture, art, birds, costumes and much more.A very good copy, wholly untrimmed and some quires unopened.

      - Auf der Rückseite der Ansichtskarte "Prof. Dr. Martin Heidegger" (mit gedrucktem Portraitfoto) des Erker-Verlags St. Gallen an seinen ehemaligen Schüler Professor Gottfried Martin: "Lieber Herr Martin, ich danke Ihnen für ihren Geburtstagsgruß aus Ischia. / Mit Freuden höre ich von ihren Vorhaben, in diesem WS [Wintersemester] `Sein u. Zeit` zu interpretieren. / Diese Aufgabe ist immer noch nötig, wenngleich die Abhandlung nur ein erster Schritt bleibt. // Mit guten Wünschen und freundlichen Grüßen / Ihr Martin Heidegger. - [und auf der zweiten Hälfte der Karte noch einmal:] "Mit herzlichem Dank // Martin Heidegger" - // - Gottfried Martin (1901-1972) hatte 1934 bei Heidegger mit dem Thema "Arithmetik und Kombinatorik bei Kant" promoviert. Seine Habilitationsschrift über Wilhelm von Ockham wurde u. a. von dem Kölner Philosophieprofessor Artur Schneider, welcher wiederum 1913 in Freiburg Heideggers Doktorvater gewesen war, positiv beurteilt. Gottfried Martin lehrte ab 1943 an den Universitäten Jena und Köln. Ab 1953 war er Professor an der Universität Mainz und gab die Kant-Studien heraus, die er mit Paul Menzer wieder begründet hatte. - Allgemein bekannt ist G. Martin ist als Autor der Rowohlt - Bildmonographien über Sokrates und Platon. - Ab 1958 war er Professor in Bonn und so fand 1960 die erste Hauptversammlung der Kant-Gesellschaft (nach 1934) in Bonn statt. Zur Zeit unserer Karte (1969) wurde er Erster Vorsitzender der Kant-Gesellschaft. - Heidegger möchte, dass sein epochales Hauptwerk (publiziert 1927) ebenso gewürdigt wie weitergedacht wird. - Diese Haltung einer ideologisch nicht verfestigten, historischen Interpretation hat er bis ins hohe Alter selbst vertreten. Am 17. XI. 1973 schreibt Heidegger an Edda Martin, die Witwe von Gottfried Martin: "Daß alles echte Denken stets "unterwegs" bleibt, ist eine Erfahrung, die allzuleicht vergessen wird." [in Kopie dabei]. Und so zeigt unsere Karte, dass nach Heidegger die Aufgabe des lebendigen Denkens notwendig Weiterschreiten ist. DANKE für Ihre Bestellung. - Wegen ABWESENHEIT kann ich diese erst AB 27. April bearbeiten. - Ich danke für Ihre Geduld. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1550 [Attributes: Signed Copy]
