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.

        A fantastic Carrie Nation signed note, "I can not spare a hatchet"!

      Topeka, Kansas, March 7, 1901. 7.5" x 5". "Single page letter/note, 7.5"" x 5"", on thin paper. Verso has two small paper attachments to the corner tips perhaps used for framing purposes. Letter scripted in graphite, dated ""March 7th, 1901,"" and signed ""Carrie Nation.""An intriguing short letter written to ""Charles"" by the infamous hatchet carrying crusader who tried to bring the world to a state of sobriety. Armed with what she believed was a calling from God, Carrie Nation's revelation propelled her to do ""God's wishes,"" and eradicate drinking with the firm belief that alcohol was the ""destroyer of men's souls.""Her anti alcohol crusades did not originally start violent, in fact, she originally would just campaign against the use of alcohol with simple protests and serenade saloon patrons with hymns. However, by date of this letter, she was in full hatchet mode having received her calling from God when she was awakened by a voice saying ""GO TO KIOWA"" and my hands were lifted and thrown down and the words, ""I'LL STAND BY YOU."" The words, ""Go to Kiowa,"" were spoken in a murmuring, musical tone, low and soft, but ""I'll stand by you,"" was very clear, positive and emphatic. Carrie was impressed with a great inspiration, according to her, the interpretation was very plain, it was this: ""Take something in your hands, and throw at these places in Kiowa and smash them.""By the writing of this letter, Carrie was a phenomenon and would regularly see the inside of a jail cell. Her letter was written from ""In Jail Topeka"", with the date of ""March 7th 1901."" This may have been the culmination of the event when her fervor led her to invade the governor’s chambers at Topeka. However, whether her jail term on this one occasion emanated from invading the governors chamber, or instead yet another example of destruction of property, Carrie became such a phenomenon that she capitalized on her notoriety by profiting from the selling of souvenir hatchets and hitting the lecture circuit; all of which raised the funds necessary to bail her out of jail many times. This wonderful letter, signed by Carrie Nation with her various self ordained titles, ends with her perfect salient note to Charles ""I can not spare a hatchet yet""!"

        SEFER HASHANA. [Hashano] [THIRD YEAR] [Inscription at top left corner: "Checked by the Jewish Section of Mariupol Department of Public Education 19.IV.[19]21" [The department was created after the Russian Revolution, these Jewish Sections were responsible for ensuring that Jewish literature, schools, etc. were ideologically appropriate.]

      Warsaw Warszawa, Varsha, Poland 1901 - Title page also has, handwritten in Hebrew: "From the library of M. V. Ros[?man]." Paper yellowed. A few illustrations. Nahum ben Joseph Samuel Sokolow (10 Jan 1859 Wyszogrod, Poland - 17 May 1936 London) Zionist leader, author, translator, and a pioneer of Hebrew journalism. Born to a rabbinic family in Wyszogród, Poland (then Russian Empire), Sokolow began writing for the local Hebrew newspaper, HaTzefirah, at age 17, quickly won a huge following that crossed the boundaries of political and religious affiliation among Polish Jews, from secular intellectuals to anti-Zionist Haredim, eventually had his own regular column, then became the newspaper's senior editor and a co-owner. He was a prolific author and translator. His works include a 3 volume history of Baruch Spinoza and his times, and other biographies. He was the first to translate Theodor Herzl's utopian novel Altneuland into Hebrew, giving it the name Tel Aviv (literally, "An Ancient Hill of Spring"). which in 1909 was adopted for the first modern Hebrew-speaking city: Tel Aviv. In 1906 he was asked to serve as secretary general of the World Zionist Congress. He then spent years crisscrossing Europe and North America to promote Zionism. During World War I, he lived in London, where he was a leading advocate for the Balfour Declaration of 1917, in which the British government declared its support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. On 6 Feb 1917 a meeting was held in Maida Vale with Dr Weizmann to discuss the results of the Picot convention in Paris. Sokolow and Weizmann pressed on after seizing leadership from Gaster; they were granted official recognition from the British government. At 6 Buckingham Gate on 10 Feb 1917 another was held, in a series of winter meetings in London. The generation of Anglo-Jewish Association assimilationists, Greenberg, Cowen and Gaster were stepping down or being passed over. ".those friends . in close cooperation all these years", Weizmann suggested should become the EZF Council (English Zionist Freedom) - Manchester's Sieff, Sacher and Marks, and London's Leon Simon and Samuel Tollowsky: the Zionists take over of Jewish leadership in Britain. While the war was raging outside, the Zionists prepared for an even bigger fight; the survival of their home land. They issued a statement on 11 Feb 1917, and on 12th, they received news of the Kerensky take over in Petrograd. Tsarist Russia was very anti-semitic. But incongruously this made the British government even more determined to help the Jews. Chaim Weizmann wrote to the Manchester Zionist, Harry Sacher, who became a focus for the view that Sokolow and Weizmann had capitulated; forfeiting the right to lead by "preferring British Imperialism . to Zionism". Sacher distinguished his Manchester base as different from the "London folk". He did not trust the Foreign Office, nor Weizmann's tactics. In a letter to Tollowsky, Weizmann branded Sacher as "Draufheher" - German extremist Sokolow acted as Weizmann's eyes and ears in Paris on a diplomatic mission with Sir Mark Sykes to negotiate with the French. The idea that the Jews would form a new kind of Triple Entente under the Ottoman Empire was unsettling to them. Nonetheless the delegation left for Paris on 31 March 1917. One purpose of the Entente was to strengthen the hand of Zionism in USA. "The Jews represented a powerful political and economic force.if subterranean influence". Sokolow did not know of the secret Sykes-Picot Agreement and hidden British/French understanding on Middle Eastern policy matters. He believed that he must report to Weizmann that what France really meant by a "Greater Syria", taking the whole of Palestine for themselves. In a series of letters in April and May 1917, Weizmann accused Sokolow of letting the Zionists down in negotiations with France. Sokolow countered that . . . [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Nobelpreis für Literatur Sammlung von 1901 - 1996

      Der Nobelpreis für Literatur ist der bedeutendste und begehrteste Literaturpreis unserer Zeit. Seit 1901, dem fünften Todestag des Stifters Alfred Nobel, wird alljährlich ein Schriftsteller ausgezeichnet, der international das am deutlichsten idealistisch inspirierte Werk der Weltliteratur geschaffen hat. In einer festlichen Feierstunde empfängt der preisgekrönte Autor aus der Hand des Königs von Schweden Diplom, Goldmedaille und einen größeren Geldbetrag. Der Freundeskreis der Nobelpreisträger für Literatur gibt im Coronverlag Zürich unter der Schirmherrschaft der Nobelstiftung und der Schwedischen Akademie Stockholm die Meisterwerke aller bisherigen NOBELPREISTRÄGER FÜR LITERATUR in einer geschlossenen Sammlung in bibliophiler Luxusausstattung heraus. Die kostbaren Bände enthalten neben dem ungekürzten Werk: Eine kleine Geschichte der Zuerkennung des Nobelpreises. Die Würdigungsrede, gehalten aus Anlaß der Verleihung. Eine Beschreibung von Leben und Werk des Schriftstellers. Eine vollständige Bibliographie und ein photografisches Porträt des Autors. Durch diese einzigartige Vollkommenheit erhält die Edition ihren unschätzbarenbleibenden Wert. Zahlreiche Werke der Sammlung Nobelpreis für Literatur sind nur dort erhältlich - ein Zeichen ihrer Exclusivität. In den Jahren 1914, 1918, 1935, 1940, 1941, 1942 und 1943 wurde kein Noelpreis für Literatur verliehen. In den Jahren 1904, 1917 und 1966 wurden je zwei Schriftsteller ausgezeichnet. Der Preisträger von 1964, Jean-Paul Sartre, nahm den ihm verliehenen Nobelpreis für Literatur nicht an und ist deshalb in der Zusammenstellung nicht berücksichtigt. Da es sehr viele Bücher sind komme ich mit den 20 für Porto nicht hin. Man muss mit ca. 100 Porto rechnen. Besser wäre es wenn die Ware bei mir abgeholt wird. Bei Interesse bitte melden!

      1901. Questa prestigiosa e documentatissima rivista, autorevole testimone di 90 anni di STORIA E CULTURA ITALIANA, nasce il 14 dicembre 1873 con la testata "NUOVA ILLUSTRAZIONE UNIVERSALE" e conclude la sua esperienza nel dicembre 1962. Mentre LA DOMENICA DEL CORRIERE (1899-1989) era letta da una ben definita fascia sociale e considerata la rivista del "POPOLO" con le magistrali copertine del mitico BELTRAME , questa ILLUSTRAZIONE ITALIANA fu notoriamente LA RIVISTA DELLA BORGHESIA E DEL CETO MEDIO-ALTO - graficamente assai curata con carta patinata ed incisioni realizzate con tecniche di avanguardia e di numerosi ed autorevoli scritti con firme importanti e sopratutto immagini (notevolissimo il contenuto iconografico) di avvenimenti, personaggi regnanti ed uomini di stato, vedute, opere d'arte, costruzioni, movimenti culturali. La evoluzione storica italiana qui trovò ampio palcoscenico - spazio ed informazioni " nella rara collezione che qui presentiamo 1901-1945 con gli avvenimenti storici e decisivi - PRIMA E SECONDA GUERRA MONDIALE E SOPRATUTTO PER IL VENTENNIO DEL REGIME FASCISTA. Notevole la documentazione di tanti anni di pubblicità con foto ed illustrazioni che costituiscono una ricchissima fonte di studio e di analisi sui fenomeni delle reclams. Il capitolo dei grandi collaboratori scrittori va sottolineato dalla presenza di GIOSUE' CARDUCCI, GRAZIA DELEDDA, LUIGI PIRANDELLO, GIOVANNI VERGA, GABRIELE D'ANNUNZIO ed ancora in epoche più recenti . da EUGENIO MONTALE, ELIO VITTORINI, SALVATORE QUASIMODO, RICCARDO BACCHELLI, ITALO PIETRA, NICCOLO' GIANI, SERGIO SOLMI e tantissimi altri.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland [together with:] Through the Looking-Glass

      New York: Harper & Brothers,, 1901 & 1902. With an introduction by E. S. Martin. Illustrated by Peter Newell. 2 works, octavo. Original cream-coloured boards, spines and front covers lettered in gilt, front covers with gilt motif of Alice, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Photogravure portrait frontispieces of Dodgson and Newell, 40 monochrome plates by Peter Newell in each volume, titlepages and letterpress printed within pale green decorative borders designed by Robert Murray Wright. Spines toned and slightly rolled, a little toning and foxing to periphery of boards, light cockling to back cover of Wonderland. A very good set. First edition illustrated by the American illustrator Peter Newell (1862-1924), who executed some genuinely innovative work for periodicals such as Harper's, Scribner's and The Saturday Evening Post. "The flood of illustrated editions of Alice in Wonderland started shortly after Carroll's death [in 1898]... of which the best known was that of Peter Newell. Newell produced forty pictures for an elegantly designed edition, the text surrounded with beautiful ornamental designs" (Graham Ovenden, The Illustrators of Alice, 1972, p. 10). Whereas Tenniel had depicted Alice with blonde hair, Newell makes her dark-haired, taking his daughter Jo as a model.
