        Briefkorrespondenz mit Georg II. von Sachsen-Meiningen

      1901 - Fritz Steinbach, 1855 - 1916, dt. Dirigent (Brahms) und Komponist, von 1886 - 1903 Hofkapellmeister in Meiningen - Briefkorrespondenz mit Herzog Georg II. von Sachsen-Meiningen, 1826 - 1914, Förderer von Kunst und Kultur, Reformator. - E. Brief m. U. Meiningen 21. u. 22.I.1901. 4 S. 4°. Büttenpapier mit Briefkopf "Intendanz der Herzoglichen Hofkapelle Meiningen". Fritz Steinbach unterbreitet seine "gefährlichen Gedanken über die "Eigenthums-Verhältnisse, der Brahmshalle" (die Pläne dafür kamen nie zur Umsetzung) auf der rechten Blatthälfte, worauf der Herzog an angebrachten Stellen seine Anmerkungen auf der linken Seite niederschreibt. ". 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.

        ILSEE PRINZESSIN VON TRIPOLIS

      Prague: B. Koci, 1901. Limited to 800 copies on Velinpapier, this no. 790. All pages are fine. Cover wrapper with some soil and chipping to spine. Portfolio with moderate wear. Limited to 800 copies on Velinpapier, this no. 790. Quarto (11 7/8"). German text by Regine Adler. (viii), 128 numbered pages, (viii). Illustrated by Alphonse Mucha in chromolithography with title, frontispiece and 132 plates in full color, gilt and silver, along with head- and tailpieces and decorations. 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 Book - Reading Rifle Club

      England, 1901. Reading (Berkshire, England), 1901-1923. 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.

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).

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.

      - 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]

An additional nineteen chromolithographs illustrate bread in its many international forms, "the bakery world") tipped onto printed pages. Additional illustrations in the text. Also included is a two-page set of color samples, indicating the color of different grades of flours, and the qualities of each. A substantial professional, technical journal of the English commercial bread industry. The first and only volume issued. Blandy was the author of The Bakers' Guide and Cooks' Assistant to the Art of Bread-making, etc., a smaller guide to the same subject, which was issued in 1886, as well as, The Baker's Catechism, and Bakery Economics. A full page ad for the author states that he was a "Certified Teacher of Breadmaking, Founder and past principal of the Borough Polytechnic School for Bread and Confectionery Making, Holder of City and London Guild Honors' Diploma for Breadmaking… Consulting Expert, etc." Some of his consulting activities included flour testing, yeast testing, supplying formulae, examining single loaves, and general consultations. The ads, some printed in rich chromolithographed color, are a fascinating look into various elements of the commercial bread-baking industry in England at the turn of the twentieth century, and include ads for a number of other professional baking periodicals, including, The Practical Confectioner & Baker, The Confectioner's Union, Milling, The British Baker, The Miller, The Baker & Confectioner, and Baker's Helper Chicago. Other ads are for flour millers, suppliers of yeast, wheatmeal, cocoa, eggs, bakery utensils, ovens and machinery.

        Indian Territory: Descriptive, Biographical, and Genealogical including the landed estates, county seats, etc., etc., with a general history of the territory.

      New York and Chicago: Lewis Publishing Company, 1901. - 4to., (10 5/8 x 8 3/8 inches). 100 photogravure plates, numerous in-text illustrations. Professionally rebound in full morocco, preserving the cover panels and portion of the original spine, decorated in blind, all edges gilt, the spine in 5 compartments separated by four raised bands, gilt lettered in two (small chip to front cover, rear cover slightly rubbed). Provenance: Ink stamps of "Thos. J. Harrison Private Library, Pryor, Oklahoma" on title page and p. 3. First edition. Attributed to D. C. Gideon, whose autobiography and photograph appear on pp. 312-313. A physician from Illinois, Gideon abandoned his medical practice and eventually immigrated to Indian Territory around 1890, where he again became a doctor, setting aside his intervening career as a journalist. In yet another twist he went back to journalism before stopping that work "in 1900 to accept the position of general and local historian for this history. His work in this line being ended, his time will hereafter be devoted to his ranch and stock in Blue county, Choctaw nation" (p. 313). Although originally married to Sarah Row, he later remarried a Choctaw woman named Nellie J. Landers. This volume is a cornerstone of historical, anthropological, social, and genealogical research for the Indian Territory shortly before it was subsumed in 1907 by Oklahoma statehood. There are numerous biographical entries, and it "has a long section on all the outlaws of the Indian Territory, including the Dalton gang and Cook gang" (Adams). This section of "Territory Outlaws" includes a biography of Bass Reeves (1824-1910), the first African American to be commissioned U.S. deputy marshal west of the Mississippi River. Born to slave parents in Paris, Texas, Reeves's career exemplifies the role that African Americans played in westward expansion, which is often overlooked. Reeves's own account of his capture and shooting of rancher Jim Webb in 1895 appears on pp. 115-118. The author's stance on Native Americans may be inferred by the statement in the section entitled "Indians Becoming Extinct": "Never in the history of the world has the extermination of a people been so complete as that of the American Indian during the past two hundred years. At first they were estimated at several millions; now only a few thousand are left, and they are being so systematically reduced by the white man's vices that another century will mark the last of their race" (pp. 7-8). Though this book records (and mourns) a fading way of life, it also clearly anticipates a growing region on the cusp of statehood. Adams, Guns 1107.

        The History of Helyas Knight of the Swan. Translated by Robert Copland from the French version

      New York: The Grolier Club, 1901 Limited edition of three hundred and twenty-five copies, three of which are on vellum. Full pigskin branded with the device of Wynken de Worde and mounted with brass clasps. Three paneled spine with tooled floral motifs Binding extremities lightly rubbed, pages untrimmed. Small quarto. Engraved illustrations (one is in black and red) and initial letters are facsimiles of the originals on wood and the text is printed from type made especially for this purpose by Sir Charles Reed's Sons in London, modeled upon the original fonts of Wynkin7. Title page printed in black and red. The book is printed on Whatman paper with ample margins of the same size (as can be estimated) as that of the original. Prospectus included; it is worth noting that prospectus states the book came with a leather slipcase, though this copy, like most others, does not have one. A remarkably fine copy. The History of the Knight of the Swan is a medieval tale about a mysterious rescuer who comes in a swan-drawn boat to defend a damsel, his only condition being that he must never be asked his name. The earliest versions do not provide specific identity to this knight, but the Old French Crusade cycle of chansons de geste adopted it to make the Swan Knight (Le Chevalier au Cigne, first version around 1192) the legendary ancestor of Godfrey of Bouillon.

        20 Letters reporting events at Ladysmith, the Transvaal, Bloemfontein and elsewhere

      VP including Ladysmith, Geluk Farm, Vluchfontein et al., 1901. Nine ALS, three TLS, eight carbons. 64 pp in total. Folio & 4to. Very good, some tiny chips to carbons and one two spots of minor dampstaining not affecting legibility. Nine ALS, three TLS, eight carbons. 64 pp in total. Folio & 4to. FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT OF THE SIEGE OF LADYSMITH. A fine group of letters by an English intelligence officer steadily rising through the ranks. In 1899 he is "sleep[ing] in the open air, only one blanket & one waterproof sheet." Within a year he was Lord Roberts' private clerk and in December 1900 he is stationed at the Commander-in-Chief's Office (Kitchener's) doing "confidential military work for the Military Secretary to Lord Kitchener." Although part of the intelligence service, Carter saw more than his share of fighting. He describes the march to Ladysmith, and the action at Elands Laagte Station, noting "a bullet going through the top of my helmet and cutting off some of my hair but without even scratching the skin." The next four letters were written from Ladysmith and provide a full account of the siege. "The Boers had big siege guns mounted on the hills around Ladysmith which quite outclassed our light field guns ... [They'd] completely invested Ladysmith & cut the telegraph lines & pulled up the Railway ... Then began the long dreary siege..." Carter reports using "a lot of pigeons" and the cost of Kaffir and Zulu runners, to get letters out of Ladysmith and at least one of his letters (not here) was published in the Hamilton Spectator. The siege is depicted much like a holiday camp, citing football matches, swimming races, water polo, cricket. "We got so indifferent to the Boer 'snipers' that you would see most of our chaps having an afternoon siesta behind their trenches while bullets would be chipping the stones around them. We also used to organise pools, when we could see some of the Boers, and have a long range shooting match, the man who bowled the first Boer over taking the pool." Yet there is also much on troops movements, information on the Boers, the conditions of Ladysmith, accounts of engaging the enemy, and reflections on the experience of combat: "the actual fighting is all right as the excitement deadens your faculties, but after a battle when ... you see your poor companions who a few hours before were joking with you, lying dead or else writhing in the agonies of pain caused by frightful wounds, then you feel your courage leaving you and your nerves getting like wax." The remaining correspondence includes three letters as Carter's regiment treks across the Transvaal through August and September 1900. These too are full of detail of life in the field, bivouacking scouting enemy positions and action: "There was a grand opportunity for our Field Artillery. They simply pumped shrapnel into them, the Artillery Officers going mad at the sight, and shrieking to the gunners 'fire! fire! hurry up you b----- fools, you never had such a chance, fire!' ... You could see at every discharge of the guns, the Boers falling, and at the same time our splendid Infantry running for all they were worth trying to get at them with the bayonet ... [I]t is very seldom the Boers leave any wounded or dead behind them and it proves how hard we pressed them ... It was like a shambles ... one, two or more bodies, horribly mutilated by the effects of the Lyddite." The final group commences with Carter being stationed at the Commander-in-Chief's office and he wastes no opportunity to use the special mail service for his own correspondence. He describes Kitchener at work and provides insight to life in the office. Yet beneath this is a yearning for the war to end and a frustration that it can't be done in one swift battle: "We cannot get a good fight out of the beggars they simply have a few shots at us and as soon as we get near enough to do some damage, off they go helter-skelter." This group were all addressed to Carter's long time friend we know only by the name of Jose. Given the warmth and detail included here, it's possible that he was using these letters as a substitute for a diary. Carter served with some distinction in 1st Manchester Regiment and was mentioned in the despatches.

X, incl. half-title, full-page frontispiece and title page, 219 pp., incl. some full-page illustrations, table of content and one leaf of ads; pencil note to verso of half-title. Publisher's red cloth heavily decorated in gilt and black, all edges gilt; upper fly-leaf defective. Lovely Russian edition of this celebrated children's book that tells a story of a little American boy, who discovers to be a heir to an English aristocratic title and a fortune. The striking publisher's binding here in an unusually bright condition. Little Lord Fauntleroy was the first children's novel of English playwright and author Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924). It was first published in book format in original English in 1886 following the serialisation in St. Nicholas magazine. Its popularity was enormous. Polly Horvath, an American-Canadian author of novels for children, wrote that Little Lord Fauntleroy "was the Harry Potter of his time and Frances Hodgson Burnett was as celebrated for creating him as J.K. Rowling is for Potter." There is little doubt that in Russia the novel was also received with great enthusiasm, as before 1918 it underwent at least 13 editions. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
