Mucha a joué un role important dans la constitution du Modern Style ou Art Nouveau, dont il a été un des meilleurs représentants”. Il ns. esemplare - n. 108 - è molto ben conservato.

        The First Men in the Moon.

      Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrill Company,, 1901. With many pictures by E. Hering. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, front cover with lettering and moon design in gilt, blocked in blind, rear cover with title blocked in blind, Frontispiece with tissue guard, 11 plates, title in black within red frame. Ends and corners a little rubbed, top edge a little darkened, small superficial crack near top of front hinge but all sound and clean within, and generally an excellent copy with the gilt bright on the covers. First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title "To Miss Healey with kindest regards from H. G. Wells". Elizabeth Healey was a fellow student of Wells at the Normal School (later Royal College) of Science, South Kensington, London, and a long-term friend and correspondent. The American edition of The First Men in the Moon is the true first edition in book form, preceding the London edition by one month. It is extremely rare inscribed - we can trace no copy as ever having appeared at auction. This copy has the first state binding with "Bowen Merrill" to the foot of spine. Wells's lunar adventure was a genre-defining work, arguably the first alien dystopia, which inspired many later works and notably provided material for the the second half of the famous Méliès silent film Le Voyage Dans La Lune (1902).

        Emma S. Doughten's European Trip, April 1901 - September 1902

      This collection consists of two journals. The first journals' shows heavy cover wear. The front cover is detached and the back strip is missing. It appears that the first few pages of the journal are missing. Some additional pages are loose or detached. The second journal covers also show moderate cover wear. The back strip is partially detached and the binding is loose by intact, though some individual pages are fully detached from the binding. Both journals are mostly written in pen, though the first few pages of the first journal are written in pencil, and therefore is had to read in places. Additionally, there are some stains in both journals due to the paste and/or tape used to adhere the postcards.. Presented in two albums, the travels of an unaccompanied female on a European tour. In early 1901 Emma Doughten began her European Tour, traveling mostly by rail, she visited numerous countries, such as Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, England and Scotland. Emma narrates every portion of her trip with exacting, detailed, entries of the sites she sees and the people she meets. From the extolling on the history of each art piece, cathedral, palace, or chateau she visited to her interactions with fellow travelers or the townsfolk she met. Often, she would spend pages writing all she learned while visiting the historic site of the day. Along with her written journal entries, in order to illustrate the numerous sites visited, are pasted-in postcards. From the view of the Louvre from across the Seine in Paris to the various small towns she visited in the high Alps in Switzerland. Starting her journey in Spain, she visited various locations, such as Ibiza and Gibraltar. Continuing on to Austria she visited Innsbruck and Vienna and saw such sites as the Hofburg Imperial Palace and the Tyrolean State Museum. A short train ride later she spent some time Germany visiting the various sights in Munich and Dresden. Making her way to Switzerland and she traveled on the Axenstrasse Highway, a picturesque road built along steep cliffs on the east side of the Lake Lucerne. The views along this throughway are spectacular as it weaves through the many rock fall galleries and tunnels along its route. From there Emma traveled on the Gotthard Railway, a Swiss trans-alpine railway that runs from northern Switzerland all the way to the country's boarder with Italy. The railroad takes its passengers through the Alps by means of the Gotthard Tunnel, making several stops along the way to the tourist towns that are scattered throughout the Alps. Along the way, Emma also saw the Rhonegletscher (otherwise known as the Rhone Glacier, located in the Swiss Alps and is the source of the Rhône River and one of the primary contributors to Lake Geneva), Le Pont Suspendu (a large suspension bridge which at its inauguration in 1834, it became, for a time, the longest suspension bridge in the world, as well as one of the first to use wireline cables instead of chains. It was destroyed in 1923 to make way for the Zaehringen bridge.), and Matterhorn (a mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy, it's a huge and near-symmetrical pyramidal peak and it is one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe). Eventually making her way into Italy, Emma spent some time along Lake Maggiore; a long, thin, lake on the south side of the Alps that is noted for its picturesque surroundings of greenery-filled mountains, before traveling on to some of the more well-known Italian tourist destinations. Such as Milan, Florence, Sienna, Rome, Assisi, and Pompeii. One lesser known spot Emma visited was Bussana Vecchia, a ghost town in Liguria, Italy, that had been abandoned by its citizens due to an earthquake in 1887. From there she continued onto France, stopping in Paris and visiting all the classic sites: The Louvre, The Vendome Column, Notre Dame, The Arc de Triumph, Place Charles de Gaulle, and Saint-Jacques Tower. Leaving Paris, Emma visited almost too many French Chateaux to be named, though some highlights are the Chateau de Cheverny, the royal Château de Chambord, and the royal Château de Blois. Emma continued on through the coast of Brittany and Normandy visiting such sites as the Carnac stones (an exceptionally dense collection of megalithic sites around the village of Carnac in Brittany), and Mont-Saint-Michel (an island fort that houses several strategic fortifications since ancient times). Using the French port city of Calais, Emma traveled across the English Channel to the cliff top town of Dover. There she started her last leg of her journey, exploring the British Isles. Traveling north through England, she visited London, Canterbury, Oxford, and Salisbury. Additionally, she spent some time at Stonehenge, Shakespeare's birthplace and Land's End (found along the coast of Cornwall, it is the most westerly point of mainland England). From there she moved onto Scotland, where she spent time visiting various lochs and their nearby towns and castles. Such as Dunstaffnage Castle by Loch Etive, Stirling Castle near Stirling City, and Durham Castle in Durham. Additionally, she also spent some time in Edinburgh and Linlithgow. Here the journal rather abruptly ends, with no real conclusion or statement how Emma traveled home. Additionally, on the last 20 or so pages of the journal Emma has left several blank sections were she obviously meant to go back and paste in the postcards of the sites she was describing but never got around to it. However, placed in-between pages of the journal, there are two envelopes full of postcards from England and Scotland, that she most likely meant to use. Additionally, the beginning of her trip is also a bit of a mystery. The first journal's binding is damaged and it looks as though several pages at the beginning are missing. As Emma made a point of recording on the inside cover of both journals where she was when she started them and the date, one is able to confirm that she started in Gibraltar. Overall, these journals provide an amazing insight into the popular 'European Tour' at the very beginning of the 20th century. To view this collection, please click on the following link:

Gli albi, in-8° grande oblungo, si presentano tutti nelle loro raffinate cartonature a colori e con i piatti adorni di inserti figurati policromi, disegnati da alcuni dei principali illustratori del periodo. Essi constano mediamente di una quarantina di pp. di testo non numerate, e sono adorni di tavole a colori, in b.n. e in tinta monocroma di illustratori del calibro di Dudovich, Innocenti, Baruffi, Edoardo Rubino, Casorati, Carena, Brunelli, Terzi, Mataloni, Nomellini, Corcos, Majani, Balla, Bistolfi, Majani, Coromaldi, Costantini, Chini, Micheli, Terzi, Duilio Cambellotti, ecc. In fine alcune tavole di pubblicità illustrate a colori e in b.n. Tutti i voll. sono completi anche delle pubblicità ed in ottimo stato conservativo. La rivista viene considerata la più elevata espressione editoriale del Liberty italiano (il manifesto della grafica moderna la definì Paola Pallottino) e ricevette il Diploma d'onore all'Esposizione Internazionale di Milano del 1906. Tra gli autori dei testi, tutti in edizione originale, figurano quasi tutti i principali nomi della scena letteraria italiana del primo '900: Benedetto Croce, Edoardo De Fonseca, Giuseppe Chiarini, Enrico Corradini, Sem Benelli, Guido Menasci, Antonio Beltramelli, Vittorio Pica , Giovanni Pascoli, Luigi Pirandello, Diego Angeli, Ugo Fleres, Ugo Ojetti, Roberto Bracco, Sante Bargellini, Enrico Corradini, Giuseppe Antonio Borgese, Salvatore Di Giacomo, Giovanni Papini, Amalia Guglielminetti, Massimo Bontempelli, Nino Savarese, Alfredo Panzini, Grazia Deledda, Francesco Pastonchi, ecc Presentandone il primo numero, il direttore Edoardo De Fonseca dichiarò. Noi, Novissima, sorgiamo con il nuovo secolo. Di questo, anno per anno, vogliamo essere l'illustrazione, il commento. Non cattedra, non tribuna. Genialità ci accompagni! Il nostro intento fu quello di far opera alta e degna. Da notare che la rivista, nata a Milano nel 1901, venne trasferita a Roma dal 1903 e cambiò diverse volte la propria intestazione (dall'anno 2 (1902), albo annuale d'arti e lettere; dall'a. 3 (1903): rivista d'arti e lettere; dall'a. 4 (1904): albo d'arti e lettere; dall'a. 11 (1913): rivista mensile d'arti e lettere). Inoltre, l'editore del periodo milanese fu Enrico Bonetti, mentre, dal momento del trasferimento del periodico a Roma, divenne la Società editrice di Novissima.

        Four Original Christmas Designs for Ally Sloper's Half Holiday.

      [1901] Four pen, ink & blue pencil designs on card, printer's marks in blue pencil on three versos, one partially laid down on card; pin holes to corners of all four.1. The Sloper Aeroplanet. Ally's latest santosity. Signed W. F. Thomas. 23 x 35cm. 2. Ready on Monday Al[ly] Slo[er's] Xmas Holidays. 23 x 35cm. Sloper's Art Union label on verso. 'Original drawing from Ally Sloper's Half-Holiday dated [in ms.] Novr. 30th 1901. Artist [in ms.] W. F. Thomas'. 3. Ally Sloper Wishes you a Merry Xmas. 23 x 35cm. edges sl. rubbed.4. "Merry Christmas To You!" 23 x 35cm. Laid on card. The comic character of Ally Sloper was created by Charles Henry Ross and first drawn by his wife Emilie de Tessier when he appeared in the magazine Judy in 1867. Ross sold the rights of the character to the publisher and printer Gilbert Dalziel and in 1884 Ally Sloper's Half Holiday became the first weekly comic magazine to be based on a single character, with images by the cartoonist William Giles Baxter. On Baxter's death in 1888 William Fletcher Thomas took the position as the principle artist for Ally Sloper until he was replaced by Charles Henry Chapman. The first two images advertise the forthcoming edition of Ally Sloper's Christmas Holidays, a supplementary edition sold each Christmas for twopence and issued with a gratis double page plate and sheet of music. The other two illustrations are presumably from the Christmas edition as they offer Season's Greetings. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

      Privately Printed, New York 1901 - 182 x 122 mm. (7 1/8 x 4 3/4"). 88, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. Original emerald green cloth, gilt lettering on upper cover and spine. Flake 3867; Howes H-231. Paper separated at front hinge, minor blistering on back cover, just a little rubbing at spine ends, but in all other ways an extraordinarily fine copy, the binding extremely bright and clean, and the text immaculate. This is an especially attractive copy of a rare privately printed book about the early days of Utah Territory, told from the perspective of a woman, with particular emphasis on what life was like for women in the new settlement. Sarah Hollister Harris travelled across the Great Plains to Utah Territory in 1851 with her husband Broughton, who had been named the first secretary of the territory. Recounting her adventures for her children and grandchildren 50 years later, she describes experiences on the trail, including encounters with Indians, her sojourn in Salt Lake City, and her observations of the Latter Day Saints who lived there and wielded great influence in the territory. Mrs. Harris got to know many Mormons, including Brigham Young and his wives, and became good friends with several Mormon women. As the sole Gentile woman in Salt Lake, she felt much sympathy for the LDS women and deplored the practice of polygamy. Conflicts between the Church and Federal authorities caused the Harrises to leave after a year, but she returned to Salt Lake City in 1891, this time travelling by train to a modern city unrecognizable from days of old. This has always been a rare book, and is even more so today: ABPC and RBH show only one copy at auction since 1988.

        L'Éducation Sentimentale. Histoire d'un Jeune Homme. Édition Définitive

      Paris: Bibliothèque-Charpentier, 1901. James Joyce's personal copy of Flaubert's great bildungsroman, intended as the moral history of his generation, first published in 1869. The novel follows a provincial young man in Paris, largely frustrated in his passions and ambitions, drawn back over the years into the circle of an older woman he once loved. This paperback edition bears the early ownership signature of James Joyce, dated 1901, when he was nineteen. Flaubert's work was a lifelong touchstone for Joyce, who admired his precursor's dedicated craftsmanship and commitment. Ezra Pound, in his review of Joyce's own bildungsroman, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, noted that "Joyce produces the nearest thing to Flaubertian prose that we have now in English," and in the character of Stephen Dedalus, Joyce created as problematic a young man as Flaubert's Frederic Moreau. Stephen's famous definition of the artist, "like the God of creation . . . within or behind or beyond or above his handiwork, invisible, refined out of existence, indifferent, paring his fingernails," is lifted almost directly from one of Flaubert's most famous letters. Provenance: James Joyce to unknown owner(s) to Ernest Boyd to Thomas Quinn Curtis to Alexander Neubauer. The modern binding dates from Boyd's ownership. This copy is a primary source for Scarlett Baron's Strandentwining Cable: Joyce, Flaubert, and Intertextuality (OUP, 2012). A great association. Full modern red buckram lettered in gilt, yellow publisher's rear wrapper bound in. Ink signature of James Joyce (dated 1901) to half-title. Bookplate of Alexander Neubauer to front pastedown. Front wrapper missing; half-title torn with loss, with early tape repairs to verso; text block embrowned.

        [Handwritten title]: Original Manuscript of "Hall Caine - The Man and The Novelist" by C. Fred Kenyon with extensive Autograph Corrections & Revisions by the subject, Hall Caine. Inserted, are also six autograph letters, etc. by Hall Caine containing prefatory matter and suggestions for the "Life" 1901

      1901. Fine. Manuscript. Large octavo. Approximately 40 unnumbered pages consisting of calligraphic title page, preface, and transcriptions of the Hall Caine Autograph Letters which are mounted to reveal both sides of the letters and include one envelope; followed by the manuscript of the biography consisting of 244 leaves handwritten on rectos only, with corrections and revisions in the hands of both Kenyon and Hall Caine. Beautifully bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe in full blue morocco elaborated stamped in gilt and red, in custom cloth clamshell case. Fine; the case shows modest wear.The book also displays a later gift inscription: "To my dear and beloved friend David G. Joyce given this day Sunday May 21, 1916. Harry Dayton Sickles." A fascinating, if problematic inscription. Joyce was a noted Chicago book collector. Sickles was a horse of a different color: a forger who was in league with Eugene Fields, II. Indeed it is now widely thought that it was Sickles who did most of the actual forgery for which Fields, the son of the noted poet, was notorious.However, it seems unlikely that Sickles would go to the laborious trouble of forging a complete 244 page and little known biography, or even the Hall Caine letters, most of which are on either Caine's own stationary (Greeba Castle on the Isle of Man), or on that of his publisher (William Heinemann, 21, Bedford Street). It seems much more likely that Sickles was gifting the beautifully bound minor manuscript on a collector who might be more likely to pursue bigger game. Some searching reveals that Joyce seemed to be more interested in a book's binding than it's contents - an auction disbursement in 1922 of at least some of his library seemed almost devoted exclusively to sumptuous modern English bindings, of which this would qualify.Caine was a very popular Manx novelist of the period. A beautifully bound manuscript with interesting provenance and related correspondence.

        Typed Letter Signed ("Booker T. Washington, Principal") to Mrs. Romaine Wade, declining her request to help find domestic servants, and expressing a preference that his graduates stay in the "Southland"

      Tuskegee, 1901. 1 page. Oblong 8vo. Old folds. 1 page. Oblong 8vo. Washington replies to a Mrs. Wade in Santa Barbara, California, who had evidently sought help finding domestic servants: "Referring to your letter which has just been received, I am very sorry to say that I am unable to assist you in the matter of securing such domestics as you desire. Although we have a great many young women taking our course in domestic science, none of them seem disposed to leave the school at this time in the term to take up work in other directions. However, we rather urgue upon our graduates to remain in the South after completing their course as we believe the Southland offers greater opportunities for their usefulness among their own people."
