Exemplaire offert à Aristide Bruant. Envoi autographe signé de l'auteur à Aristide Bruant : A mon ami Aristide Bruant, Rossignol . Une curieuse lettre autographe de Gustave Rossignol adressée au même est jointe, dans laquelle il livre à son destinataire le mode d'emploi de l'encre sympathique qu'il a découverte dans le cadre de ses fonctions d'inspecteur principal de la Sûreté. Voici le texte de sa correspondance à l'encre brune : Nogent-sur-Marne 1/2 1901. Mon cher Bruant, merci de m'avoir envoyé ton dictionnaire auquel je me suis permis d'ajouter quelques mots au crayon que certainement tu connais mais que tu as dû oublier, s'ils peuvent être utiles pour ton dictionnaire argot-français je t'en donnerai la liste. Lorsque tu auras lu cette lettre tu la couvriras d'encre et y jeteras ensuite de l'eau dessus pour faire disparaître le plus possible l'encre dont elle aura été enduite, tu verras alors entre les lignes une façon d'écrire que tu ne connais peut-être pas. En donner l'explication au mot Broder dans ton dictionnaire argot français serait peut être intéressant. A toi cordialement Rossignol. Et le texte à l'encre sympathique placé en interligne : Mon cher Aristide. Ces lignes sont écrites à l'aide d'une plume neuve et de salive. J'ai découvert cette façon d'écrire il y a une quinzaine d'années. Un détenu écrivait de la sorte à un complice du dehors. La salive sèche et devient invisible pour le greffier chargé de lire la correspondance des détenus et y mettre son visa avant que la lettre soit mise à la poste. Bien à toi Rossignol. Edition originale. Couverture illustrée par Weber tirée en noir et rouge. Entre les deux dictionnaires, l'auteur a placé Quelques spécimens de poésies des habitués des prisons. Yve-Plessis, 328.

An einen ungenannten "Herrn Dr." im Umkreis des Prager Deutschen Theaters mit der Mitteilung, er habe nun den deutschen Text mit Klavierauszug fertig, damit Kapellmeister Bloch die Partitur begutachten könne. Der Empfänger möge sich bitte von den einfachen Lebensumständen eines alten Witwers ohne Freunde und Protektion nicht täuschen lassen; er sei in der Lage, sein Versprechen zu halten, denn er sei ja Hausbesitzer in Smíchov in der Jeronýmova úlice Nr. 11 und überdies bereit, das Honorar in der Höhe von 200 Kronen oder mehr zur Disposition zu stellen. Sollte auf dem Protektionsweg (also über die Besprechung mit Kapellmeister Bloch) nichts erfolgen, dann werde sich Jerábek nach Ablauf einer Woche mit seiner Oper direkt an die Direktion des Deutschen Theaters oder auch an ein Haus in Deutschland wenden, um nicht wieder ein Jahr zu verlieren. Er bitte dann nur, der Empfänger möge der Direktion gegenüber das mündlich ausgesprochene Urteil über das Werk wiederholen. - Minimal angestaubt.

        Buddenbrooks. Verfall einer Familie. Roman. Erster und zweiter Band.

      Fischer,, Berlin, 1901 - 2 Bde. Berlin, Fischer, 1901. 8°. 566, 539 S. OLwd. EA. WG II 3. Potempa D 1. - Priv. Widm. u. Besitzsign. a. V., geringfügig berieben. - Sehr schöne Exemplare! - Mann (1875 - 1955): Die Herkunft aus dem Patriziat der Stadtrepublik Lübeck -- der Vater war Finanzsenator und Inhaber einer traditionsreichen Getreidefirma -- prägten M. nachhaltig. Sein Habitus war stets der eines gepflegten Bürgers, obgleich er seine künstlerischen Neigungen und ihre Verankerung in der Philosophie Arthur Schopenhauers und Friedrich Nietzsches sowie in der Musik Richard Wagners als antibürgerlich empfand. Nach dem unerwartet frühen Tod des Vaters (1891) blieb er zunächst als verbummelter Gymnasiast in Lübeck und folgte 1894, ohne Abitur, der Mutter nach München, wo er in den Kreisen der Schwabinger Künstlerboheme verkehrte und bald mit einer Erzählung an die Öffentlichkeit trat (Gefallen, 1894). Den künstlerischen Durchbruch brachte Der kleine Herr Friedemann (1897). Zahlreiche weitere Erzählungen folgten in den Jahren um die Jahrhundertwende. Mehrere Italienreisen, zeitweise zusammen mit dem älteren, als Schriftsteller bereits nicht mehr unbekannten Bruder Heinrich, bildeten den entstehungsgeschichtlichen Hintergrund des Romans Buddenbrooks (erschienen 1901), der den programmatischen Untertitel Verfall einer Familie trug und die Geschichte der eigenen Familie als Material für eine große Dekadenzanalyse verwendete. Mit dem rasanten Erfolg von Buddenbrooks seit der zweiten Auflage von 1903 kamen Wohlstand und Ruhm . Neben zahlreichen publizistischen Beiträgen zum ersten Weltkrieg schrieb er damals sein theoretisches Hauptwerk, die Betrachtungen eines Unpolitischen (1918), eine umfangreiche Rechtfertigung seines Lebens und Schaffens. Dieses bis heute umstrittene Buch ließ ihn in der Nachkriegszeit zunächst als Anhänger der antidemokratischen "konservativen Revolution" erscheinen. Nach allerlei gedanklichen Experimenten und mehrjähriger Unsicherheit bekannte er sich in einer aufsehenerregenden Kehrtwendung 1922 zur Weimarer Republik. Er versöhnte sich mit dem Bruder Heinrich und engagierte sich in den Jahren vor 1933 in zahlreichen Reden und Stellungnahmen publizistisch für die Sozialdemokraten, gegen die Deutschnationalen und die Nationalsozialisten. Es waren die Jahre seiner größten öffentlichen Wirkung. 1924 erschien der große Zeitroman Der Zauberberg und wurde ein internationaler Erfolg. Eine Paris-Reise im Jahr 1926 zeigte Mann als Botschafter einer Politik der Aussöhnung mit Frankreich. Das Jahr 1929 brachte den Nobelpreis. (DBE) Deutsch [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        La photographie des objets immergés

      [190 - in-4 de 228, (4), 8 pp., 8 Paris, Charles Mendel éditeur, [1901], , in-4 de 228, (4), 8 pp, 8 épreuves au gélatino-bromure d'argent contrecollées, demi chagrin brun moderne, Rarissime ouvrage écrit par Adolphe-Louis Donnadieu (1840-1911), célèbre référence dans le domaine de la photographie, notamment grâce au développement d'un instrument baptisé "physiographe", destiné à la prise de vue de préparations microscopiques en milieu aqueux (cf. La Photographie appliqué aux sciences biologiques et le physiographe universel, Lyon, 1884 ; Denis Canguilhem, Le Merveilleux scientifique. Photographies du monde savant en France, 1844-1918, Paris, Gallimard, 2004). Professeur à la faculté catholique des sciences de Lyon et photographe expérimenté, le chercheur n'écarte aucunement la photographie en tant qu'instrument de la recherche scientifique. La photographie des objets immergés commence avec une drôle d'anecdote où l'auteur nous explique l’exigence de cette application spéciale du médium : "En l'année 1880 j'avais entrepris, l’exécution d'un Atlas d'anatomie comparée [.] J'avais fait appel à un peintre [.] je disséquais sous l'eau [.] dans l'eau les couleurs disparaissent assez rapidement [.]. Mon peintre se plaignait beaucoup de la difficulté qu'il éprouvait à retrouver « ses couleurs » lors qu'il avait dû employer les premiers heures à fixer le dessin. [.] et j'étais condamné à entendre l'artiste répéter tous les jours : « Vous qui faites tant de photographie essayez donc d'en faire dans ces conditions-là »". Le texte est riche en illustrations représentant le procédé d'immersion, les matériaux utilisés et les nouvelles modifications apportées au physiographe pour le rendre plus performant. L'auteur nous guide dans ce voyage expérimental, agrémenté de nombreuses références historiques et techniques sur la photographie classique "à sec", afin nous aider à mieux comprendre l'importance et la supériorité incontestable de la photographie "dans l'eau", tout en restant conscient qu'il faut bien vérifier que l'objet se prête à l'immersion. En outre cet ouvrage contient 8 photographies originales d' animaux disséqués "à sec" et "dans l'eau" (lapin, vipère, seiche, lézard, poule, tortue). Un extrait du catalogue de l'éditeur Charles Mendel est relié in fine, avec quatrième de couverture conservée. Bel exemplaire, en partie non découpé, tirages de très belle qualité.

        SCENES TAKEN IN THE PHILIPPINES, CHINA, JAPAN AND ON THE PACIFIC RELATED TO [AME

      N.p. ca. 1901. Brown gold-stamped album, oblong format 19 x. 14 cm., with 160 b.w. photos, string tied binding, very good. sharp un-faded images, clean condition. OBSCURE PHOTO SOURCE. PHOTOS BY A SAN FRANCISCO PHOTOGRAPHER, AMERICANS IN ASIA This is a album was made by the usual method of machine printed photo plates, in a high quality, at least for the time and period. * The fascinating record of U.S. soldiers in the Spanish-Amer- ican War [1900]. The album covers what appears to be a group of volunteers who left from the East coast of America and went to Puerto Rico, & Cuba, fighting all the way. It shows some gruesome executions, hangings and other battle-related scenes. The photographer seems to have accompanied the sold- iers from their arrival in Japan with photos of women there; and China on the way to the Philippines. The photographer, a man named J.D. Givens of San Francisco took photos recording the historic voyage and actions. He seems to have borrowed some high-light photos of women in Japan, executions and the the beheading and dismemberment of Boxer rebels in China ca. [1900]. *It begins with a photo of the Americans soldier's base Camp Stetsenberg near Mt. Ariat, Philippines. Campaign photos, death and destruction in the Philippines, superb photos of ethnic Philippine natives from various islands & cultur- es, semi-nude women and natives. The photos are mostly numb- ered and signed by Givens in the negative, in random order, and gaps in the numbers, but what is here seems to be a complete album recording the great event, as Givens follow- ed the action along with the G.I's. All in all, this is a very fascinating group of photos. An excellent record of the ethnic people and places the soldiers visited. One of the last photos is of a great & large groups of insurgent Filip- inos who surrender en masses to General F. D. Grant. The hanging of the worst offenders and the death of so many Fil- ipinos is recorded. An amazing insight to the actions of an early American war.

        KUSA BANA HYAKUSHU: A HUNDRED KINDS OF COLOR FLOWERS

      Tokyo 1901, Yamada Unsodo. Blue stiff stitched wrs., 4 vol.. set, 115 color plates, 29+29+30+28 double folded leaves,some. double-page,color woodblock printed on hand-made Washi paper. covers minor scuffing, contents exceptionally clean, bright.. A MAGNIFICIENT JAPANESE BOTANICAL REFERENCE A most brilliant and wonderful color botanical. The work was edited by Kono Seiko his heir posthumously. Bairei [1844-95] was a Kyoto artist & pupil of the Maruyama painter Nakajima Raisho, later studied under the Shijo master Shiokawa Bunrin and followed the Nanga school tradition under Nakanish Koeki & others. His work exhibits the charm and sensitivity of strong strokes in a traditional style. * The work illustrates 100 kinds of flowers in full color on full pages, each properly named. A majority are flowers in color, including fruit, orchids, wild grasses, and other flowering plants. A lovely & charming work, boldly printed in stunning full color. * The work was issued serially: the first part in 2 volumes in 1901 with title: SOHKA HYAKUSHU. The second part also in 2 volumes with "supplement" or "hen" added to the title SOHKA HYAKUSHU NIHEN, issued in 1903, in all the completed work consists of 4 volumes. It is not uncommon to find this separated into part I, part II, by those who don't know its a 4 volume set. There is also a binding variant, wherein part I is bound in one volume and part II also in one volume, lending to the confusion. It is easy to confuse this point if one is not careful in reading the title slip or the colophons. * The Japanese were truly experts at faithfully recording botanical books in "true-to-original colors found in nature. This work utilizes pastel vegetal colors, reflecting the essence of those colors actually found in nature. Bartlett has stated "Kono Bairei was one of the last of the artists who illustrated plants for wood-block printing and whose work is considered by critics as important." See Bartlett entry below, p.531 for this quotation. * TITLE: The official title recorded in the majority of reference books is KUSABANA HYAKUSHU, or KUSABANA HYAKU SHIKI [SHIKI used for the supplemental 2 volumes], with a variant reading of SOKA HYAKUSHU. * AUTHORSHIP/ARTIST: The work was illustrated by Kono Bairei. Because it was published posthumously and edited by his heir, Kono Seiko, some bibliographers wrongly attribute the work to Seiko, again, this simply contributes to confusion of authorship. * THE ARTIST: Kono Bairei [1844-1895], was a pupil of Nakajima Raisho [Maruyama school artist] and Shiokawa Bunrin, a Shijo school artist. He lived in Kyoto and was famous for his impromptu sketching or Sekijo. His pupils were Takeuchi Seiho [inquire with us for items by him], and a large number of others who were famous in their own right. See Mitchell below on p.14 for additional details, and a list of other titles by Bairei. Please inquire with us as we do try to keep other titles by him in stock. * Per Roberts: "Kono Bairei was a Japanese-style painter who lived in Kyoto. He was the first pupil of the Maruyama painter, Nakajima Raisho, later to become a Shijo artist under Shiokawa Bunrin and later a follower of the Nanga school. His bold style is full of strong brush strokes, traditional charm and sensitivity. He was especially adept at drawing and illustrating birds and flowers in the Kacho style..." See Roberts entry et al below. * REFERENCES: * H. Bartlett: JAPANESE BOTANY DURING THE PERIOD OF WOOD-BLOCK PRINTING p.237-8,exhibit 97. * L.

        Great Irony! A book of " Good Cheer, " signed and owned by the infamous Lizzie Borden!

      [Fall River, Massachusetts], July 19, 1901. 16mo.. "Her signature, ""L. A. B."" in pencil, adding ""July 19-1901,"" below, accomplished on the front blank flyleaf of a bound volume of Good Cheer: A Monthly Magazine for Cheerful Thinkers. (Boston: Forbes & Company, November 1900), Vol. 1, 192 pp., 16mo, bound in green paper boards with tan cloth spine titled in black type. With several additional light pencil highlights on several pages within. Some light wear to corners, pages clean.A most ironic association piece in light of the volume's previous owner?"one that's driven home in a poem by Fred Emerson Brooks, entitled the ""Whistling Boy,"" (page 39) which offers the following observation: ""You will never find a criminal behind an honest smile."" Several passages are highlighted in the margin in pencil, presumably by Borden herself. One poem, on page 17 entitled, ""It is Better,"" reminds the reader to: ""Keep a smile on your lips; it is betterTo joyfully, hopefully try For the end you would gain then to fetter Your life with a moan and a sigh. There are clouds in the firmament ever The beauty of heaven to mar, Yet night so profound there is never But somewhere is shining a star."" Considering the social ostracism Borden endured following her sensational 1893 murder trial, poems like these perhaps offered some measure of comfort. Another passage, on page 45, is also highlighted in pencil: ""'BLUES' are the soggy calms that comeTo make our spirits mope,And steal the breeze of promise fromThe shining sails of hope.""Page 49 offers similar solace: ""Though life is made up of mere bubbles,'T is better than many aver,For while we've a whole lot of troubles,The most of them never occur.""In light of her infamy, Borden was an animal lover, and upon her death in 1927 she left $30,000 to the Fall River Animal Rescue League. Another highlighted passage offers a hint as to her attitude toward animals (p. 79): ""He knows he should be kind to dumb creatures, but he notes that his father drives horses with docked tails and over-head check-reins, that he shoots deer, that he cases a little fox with a pack of noisy hounds, and that his mother wears a stuffed bird on her Sunday bonnet.""Of course, Lizzie is better known from this most familiar rhyme recited at the time of her 1892 murder trial (and afterwards after she was acquitted): ""Lizzie Borden took an axe / And gave her mother forty whacks. / When she saw what she had done, / She gave her father forty-one.""Anything signed by Lizzie Borden is extremely rare. In 2003, a signed copy of a book owned by her sold for $6,000. Only three ALsS signed by her have sold at auction in the last 25 years, the latest bringing over $8,000."
