        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      2 S., 4. An den steirischen Schriftsteller und Journalisten Rudolf List (1901-1979). - [...] Ein Aufsatz über meine Arbeiten in Ihrer Austria wäre von großem Wert für mich. Nur weiß ich nicht, wie das praktisch zu machen wäre. Viele - und gerade meine besten Sachen, die ich noch in Wien geschrieben habe, sind aus wohlbekannten Gründen unbekannt geblieben [...]. Den Mahler Aufsatz werde ich mit größter Freude schreiben, nur bitte ich um Geduld. Erst muss ich die neue Partitur vom Hals schaffen, dann meine Erinnerungen wecken [...]. Die zwei Briefe von seiner Hand gehören zu meinen kostbarsten Schätzen, sind aber inhaltlich bedeutungslos [...]. 1903 wurde Weigl Mitglied in der Vereinigung schaffender Tonkünstler, die er gemeinsam mit Zemlinsky und Schönberg gründete und deren Ehrenpräsident Gustav Mahler war [...]. - Weigl studierte in Wien Klavier und Komposition, unter anderem bei Alexander von Zemlinsky, und wirkte nach seiner Promotion in Wien als Lehrer am Konservatorium und an der Universität. Der jüdische Komponist wanderte 1938 in die USA aus und erwarb 1943 dort die Staatsbürgerschaft. Er war ein hochgeschätzter Musikpädagoge und besonders bei Musikern respektierter Komponist. Er schuf sechs Sinfonien, weitere Werke für Orchester, Instrumentalkonzerte, Vokal- und Kammermusik. Ich habe Dr. Weigl immer als einen der besten Komponisten dieser alten Generation betrachtet einer derer, die die glanzvolle Wiener Tradition weiterführen. Er bewahrt zweifellos die alte Haltung jenes musikalischen Geistes, welcher einen der besten Teile der Wiener Kultur darstellt. Diese Worte schrieb Arnold Schönberg im Juni 1938 in einem Empfehlungsschreiben über Karl Weigl, der sich anschickte, seine unsicher gewordene Heimat zu verlassen. Karl Weigl, der vor allem in den Zwischenkriegsjahren als Komponist und Lehrer einen bedeutenden Anteil am Wiener Musikleben innehatte, muss wohl zur großen Gruppe der Entwurzelten gezählt werden, die, durch die Machtergreifung der Nationalsozialisten zur Emigration gezwungen, in ihrer neuen Heimat nie mehr an die Erfolge ihrer Vergangenheit anknüpfen konnten (Wikipedia). - Knickspuren. - Beiliegend eine kleine Broschüre (8 S. inkl. Umschlag) über den Komponisten mit einem Portrait u. Daten zu Leben und Werk. -

        Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

      London: Harper & Brothers, 1901. 8vo, xvii, 193 pp. with frontispiece portrait of Carroll, forty black and white plates by Newell, and decorative page borders in green by Robert Murray Wright. Original white paper boards and green dustjacket, both with titles and embossed image of Alice in gilt. Boards slightly spotted, jacket fading to brown and cracking at folds, complete but for a chip in the crown of the spine and very rarely seen better. First edition illustrated by Peter Newell. Newell was the first major illustrator to tackle Carroll’s work after Tenniel (Rackham’s Alice was not published until 1907) and the first to depart significantly from Tenniel’s vision, opening the door to the many varied interpretations of the twentieth century. His soft pencil drawings emphasize the comedy in the book and often depict moments that Tenniel and the intervening illustrators ignored, such as the three sisters who lived at the bottom of the well and the moment the hedgehog croquet balls commence to fight. An important milestone in the history of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

        First Men in the Moon, The [First Issue]

      London: George Newnes, 1901. First Impression. Hardcover. Fine. First British Edition, First Issue, with black coated end papers. 8vo; viii, 342pp, with a frontispiece and 11 further full-page illustrations by Claude Shepperson. Publisher's dark blue decorative cloth, the upper cover and spine stamped gilt (the first and primary binding state, of four). An unusually Fine, bright copy, the hinges uncracked, of one of the most difficult of Wells's science fiction titles to be found in collectible condition. The last and perhaps most complex of Wells's early scientific romances, inspired by Jules Verne's 'Journey to the Moon.' Unlike Verne, Wells had all scientific aspects of his lunar voyage verified for plausibility by experts at the time. In 1919, the book was turned into the first of the films to be based on Wells's work. "These early 'scientific romances' remain unsurpassed for their imagination and visionary power. Where Wells's contemporaries saw him as adding the scientific imagination to nineteenth-century romance, the twentieth century regarded him as the greatest of the forerunners of modern science fiction. His tales of future evolution, alien intelligence, interplanetary warfare and technological dystopia anticipated most of science fiction's thematic repertoire." (Literary Encyclopedia) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Archive of correspondence to the editor of the Pastoralist's Review, 1901 - 1913

      Ledger book (wrappers defective) containing 75 hand written and typed letters to Richard Twopenny, Editor of the Pastoralist's Review (formerly the Australian Pastorialist's Review, and later the Pastoral Review), dated between 1901 and 1913. The letters are from subscribers across Australia and New Zealand (and even from as far afield as Scotland and Nevada), largely renewals of subscription, but all containing complimentary reviews of the magazine, which would explain their retention by the editor for use as testimonials. The Australian Pastorialist's Review was founded in Melbourne in 1891 by Richard Twopenny, who had served as Commissioner at the various international exhibitions of the 1870s and 80s. The name was changed to the Pastorialist's Review, no doubt because of its popularity in New Zealand, from where many of these letters are sent. In 1913 the name was changed to The Pastoral review : a journal and a record of all matters affecting the pastoral and agricultural interests throughout Australasia, presumably to widen the audience from purely graziers to farmers in general. In 1935 the name was again changed to The Pastoral review and graziers' record : on all matters affecting the grazing, stud breeding and agricultural interests of Australia and New Zealand, and in 1968 simply reverted back to The Pastoral review. The magazine ceased publication in 1977. Twopenny had died in 1915. These letters very clearly show the importance the magazine had within local farming communities across Australia and internationally, and well illustrate a post-Federation agricultural Australia 'riding on the sheep's back'.

        The End of an Epoch

      London: William Blackwood. London, William Blackwood, 1901. First Edition. First Impression. A rare book. Presumed first issue, with ads dated '7/01' and a stamp to the title page 'With the Publisher's Compliments.' The author's only title, and thought by Bleiler to be heavily influenced by The Purple Cloud by M.P. Shiel. The Shiel work was rejected by a publisher, and then this work mysteriously appeared. Shiel made accusations of plagiarism. Whether or not that was the case, remains to be seen. Regardless, the book's hard to find. A near fine copy with a little bumping to the spine tips and some dustiness to the top of the block. Endpapers toned, front edge dusty and a little spotted. [5672, Hyraxia Books]. . Very Good. Hardback. 1st Edition. 1901.

        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 be?nvloed 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).

        Il Re Dei Cuochi; ossia, L'arte di mangiare al gusto degl'italiani con cibi nostrali e stranieri; opere contenente quanto è necessario per saper bene ordinare e servire un pranzo, non chè i migliori metodi per fare confetture, rosoli, liquori e gelati. [The King of Chefs; or, The art of eating, after the manner of the Italians, our own and foreign dishes; containing what is necessary to know about ordering and serving a meal, as well as the best methods for creating preserves, spirits, liqueurs, and ice creams.]

      Firenze: Adriano Salani, Editore, 1901. Small octavo (17.5 x 12 cm.), 359 pages. Frontispiece (see description below) and one diagram (a banquet table, from above, set for twenty-four persons). First edition. The earliest recorded copies of this title were printed by Salani in 1904, and there were numerous subsequent printings (see Orazio Bagnasco, II, pages 1406-1407). A recipe collection and guide to the Italian peninsula. L'arte di mangiare presumes a certain focus on batters, grains, creams, and sauces. One might linger over Fritelle di Erbe Odorose (fragrant herb fritters, no. 293) or a regional Sfogliatine with candied fruit (no. 672). But the seven hundred ninety-six numbered recipes insistently embrace fish (tench, bream, mullet, paraghi, carpione), game, and the full complement of bovidae - not to forget hooves, stomachs, testicles, and tongues. The indispensable note "salateli allora quanto basta" ("then add salt to taste") recurs, but precision of measurement is enlisted when needed: Scorzonera (salsify) should be cut in eight or ten centimeter lengths (no. 221); Gelato di Crema alla Mandorla (no. 776) requires three hundred grams of almonds to fourteen egg yolks. And, for those who desire the carmine effect, one needs ten grams of the scale insect cochineal to prepare the liqueur Alkermes (no. 767) - which, in turn, will be needed for the Zuppa Inglese (no. 659). A small host of Italian cookery companions appear in the middle half of the nineteenth century with names of their author(s) omitted, evidently as promise that the cuisine advocated therein would be found to be communal, "of the people" - in a word, national - and not, therefore, the concoctions of a chef in the employ of nobility. They might be either men or women, or even both, as in the case of Il cuoco milanese e la cuciniera piemontese (Milan: Lombardi, 1853). Chefs of noble houses, by contrast, advertised their names and co-opted the language of hierarchy. Probably the most successful cookbook of this milieu was that by Giovanni Nelli: Il re dei cuochi: Trattado di gastronomia universale (Milan: Legros, 1868; and reprinted many times); though later followers raised the royal banner, trumping Nelli's The King of Cooks with The King of Kings of Cooks (Jean-Marie Parmentier's Il re dei re dei cuochi [Turin: Bietti, 1895]) and The Emperor of Cooks (Vitalino Bossi's L'imperatore dei cuochi [Rome: Perini, 1894]). An anonymous sovereign, then, is something of a hybrid. Il re dei cuochi (originally published in 1881) appropriates from Nelli the opening phrase of its title and reproduces on its frontispiece the image of a cook holding a saucepan and slotted spoon that had appeared on Nelli's cover (a popular engraving in neither the first nor last of its sightings). It may have been intended as a less expensive alternative to the Trattado. Recipes occupy center stage: general instructions (obligations of the host, table service, preliminary ingredients notes) are dispensed with in twenty-two pages. Thereafter the impression is one of an attempt to embrace the regions of the peninsula, supplemented with a nod to the Mediterranean beyond, with suffixes such as all 'uso toscano, all'uso di Napoli, alla romagnola, alla veneziana, alla cremonese, alla milanese, alla lucchese, alla triestina, alla perugina, alla genovese, alla lombarda, alla tirolese, alla torinese, alla marchigiana; and all' Istriono, alla provenzale, all' uso di Levante. One leaf loosened, two pages very slightly chipped; otherwise text block solid and pages clean. rebound in lightly worn, publisher's dark green pebbled cloth. Spine rubbed, with gilt short title on spine. Still very good or better. Owner's plate "Ex Libris John Fuller" inside front cover. Very rare. [OCLC locates no copies of the 1891 printing, but two copies dated 1894 with similar pagination, LOC & Texas Tech].
