        Bizarre Alien Art Manuscript Books

      This is a very interesting collection of two landscape format albums of original Artwork by Rosalind Gard (1881-1964) containing fifty one Original pieces of her bizarre cartoon creations of weird Alien like creatures and strange deformed human characters, and other beasties, inside the first album she gives her address as "Bendigonia", Queens Street, Melbourne, Australia, the album is dated 7th November 1901, with the artwork dated 1901-1902, the second album is not dated but is of the same period. Her "Bedigonia" home is a notable listed Gothic style Mansion built in 1868, and her father was John Edward Gard, a noted successful Melbourne Mining investor, the landscape albums measuring 14 inches by 10 inches approx. are cloth bound, one has been decorated by the artist and is titled "Rosalind Gard Rubbish", I have not been able to find out much about her, but she obviously had an imaginative and creative mind. The albums are showing some signs of age and wear, browning and marking to the covers, internally some noticeable browning and foxing, the pages in the second album are mostly loose from the covers and some have noticeable edge wear creasing as do the protective tissue guard which are heavily creased, however as can be seen in the pictures the artwork remains largely unaffected. A very interesting collection of bizzare imaginative artwork, by a young Australian female artist, of whom it would be worth doing more research on

      1901. London: Macmillan and Co., 1901. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth with ganesha device in gilt. First English Edition of the book that "is acknowledged as Kipling's masterpiece in fiction... The novel is the finest written about the India of the British Empire" [CGEL]. It follows the adventures of an orphan son of a British soldier who is raised by an Indian woman, becomes a disciple to a Lama, and ultimately becomes an undercover agent as well. The illustrations are by John Lockwood Kipling, the author's father. The American edition is considered to have been published earlier (though in the same month as the English one).~As with most of Kipling's British editions published by Macmillan, the binding is red cloth with in gilt the "Ganesha" device -- an elephant's head with a swastika (the latter had been a ubiquitous symbol in India for millennia; its use ceased in the early 1930s, when events in Germany gave the symbol a whole new meaning).~This is a near-fine copy (light rubbing at the edges and on the ganesha device, occasional light foxing). Richards A174; Stewart 254; Livingston 250. One of the books selected as a "Modern Library 100" for the 20th Century.

        "Der Fakir". Autogr. poem ms. signed. N. p. o. d.

      1901. 4to. 2 pp. 7 four-line verses. Includes a 4-line lettercard signed (small 8vo, n. p. o. d.). On stationery with printed letterhead (struck out). A poem from Zweig's first book-length publication, his poetry collection "Silberne Saiten" (Leipzig, Schuster und Loeffler, 1901; WG 1): "Der Fakir. Die Säule, auf der ich Regloser sitze | Ist wie eine Flamme steilauf gestellt. | Ich bin ihr Ende. Doch ihre Spitze | Reicht hinab bis in den Nabel der Welt [...]". - This fair copy was probably drawn up somewhat later as a dedication, as suggested by the accompanying letter (the address, Kochgasse 8, dates the ms. between 1907 and 1916).

        Iskenderun - Gulf of Turkey

      Panorama von Alexandrette. Prague: Heinrich Mercy & Son, 1901. Exceedingly scarce and enormous illustrated panoramic pan of Alexandretta [Iskenderun], produced by Ludwig Salvator, Archduke of Austria, naturalist, pioneering conservationist, and explorer of little known Mediterranean lands. Two colour-lithographic maps (each measuring approximately 46 x 37 cm) flanking a wood-engraved panorama on 7 sheets, overall measurements 367 x 57 cm. Letterpress with one economic table and 4 wood-engravings on glazed verso; wooden rollers with brass rings at either end, margins linen-edged with linen loops at upper margin for hanging. Only one American institution holds a copy of this item, John Crerar Library. OCLC adds two copies in Germany (Munich and Hamburg). Very rare and most outstanding, this panorama of Iskenderun in the Gulf of Turkey is based on a scientific journey to the Holy Land undertaken in 1899 by world traveller, conservationist and natural historian, Ludwig Salvator, Archduke of Austria, who lived in Majorca most of his life as Count of Neuendorf. It represents the last voyage taken with Miss Catalina Homar, which ultimately cost her her life from disease. To each side of the expansive woodcut engraving is a chart, one of the Bay of Alexandretta, one of the harbour of Alexandretta, each in colour and each with nautical soundings. The verso comprises a detailed historical topographic, ethnographic, archaeological, political and economic monograph on this ancient and important trading place. The illustrations show pack animals resting on the beach of Iskenderun, traditional bazaars, the main street and the Catholic church. The maps are produced by the map printers and publishers Eduard Hölzel in Vienna; the wood-engravings were carried out by the artist Johann Simáné. Alexandretta - Iskenderun In ancient times, the port city of Alexandretta, founded by and named for Alexander the Great circa 333 BCE, was noted for its fine harbor, and was the terminus of the overland Chinese silk road. From there the silk was conveyed by boat to Italy and the rest of Europe. The city was part of the Ottoman Empire until its collapse after World War I, when it became annexed into French-controlled Syria, before being part of the short-lived Republic of Hatay, which joined Turkey in 1939. Under Ottoman rule Iskenderun became an important Mediterranean port and trade center. Situated near the pass to Syria, it was the harbour used by traders and travellers from Aleppo, inland in Syria. During the 1590s, it was an important center on the overland trade route to the Persian Gulf. It later suffered great loss from outbreaks of malaria, until the draining of its marshes, which improved health conditions and increased commerce and production. An agricultural boom began around 1890 made Alexandretta an important outlet for produce for over two decades. Following railway construction in 1913, it was surpassed by Tripoli and Beirut. The city has been named Iskenderun since the destruction of the Principality of Antioch by Mamluks in 1268. An historical continuation of its original name, 'Iskender' is Arabic for Alexander the Great. Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria (1847-1915), a rather free spirited Austrian noble, was a natural history and wildlife enthusiast, conservationist, seasoned world traveller, and accomplished author of travel works, although best known for his encyclopaedic oeuvre of Balearic natural history, a seven volume work published from 1869-1891 titled, "Die Balearen in Wort und Bild geschildert". The son of Leopold II, Grand Duke of Tuscany, he was the also second cousin to emperor Franz Joseph of the ruling House of Habsburg-Lorraine. Equipped with his own steam and sailing yacht "Nixe" completed in 1873, Salvator explored Mediterranean regions, also performing scientific studies inland. He was immediately enamoured with Majorca upon his arrival in 1867, and settled there permanently in 1872, purchasing parcels of land to preserve and enjoy. In 1885 Salvator made the acquaintance of Catalina Homar, the daughter of a carpenter from Deià, then 17 years of age. The Archduke made her the administrator of his s'Estaca estate near Deià, where she was celebrated for her success in cultivating grapes (wines produced under her stewardship from local Malvasia grapes won prizes in Paris and Chicago). The young lady also became the Archduke's lover and the pair made several trips around the world together. Salvator's ship was wrecked in 1893, and the following year Salvator acquired the three-mast vessel "Hertha" from the Prince of Liechtenstein, which he renamed "Nixe." In 1899, he made his last voyage with Catalina Homar, from Mallorca to the Holy Land. Tragically, Catalina contracted a deadly infectious form of leprosy, which eventually took her life in 1905. It was Salvator's intense desire to stimulate public interest for landscapes which he thought were little known, rarely traveled, but worthy of attention. His scientific work and subsequent treatises and maps were centered on undiscovered regions, mainly small islands in Greece, Sicily, Italy, and the Balearic Islands. [The Balearic Islands are commemorating the centenary of his death in 2015.]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. (Initialen). München, 20. II. 1901.

      1901. 2 SS. Gr.-4to. Auf Briefpapier mit Briefkopf "Thomas Mann". An seinen Jugendfreund, den späteren Kunsthistoriker und Romanisten Otto Grautoff (1876-1937): "Lieber G.: Besten Dank für das Börsenblatt mit Deinem artigen Aufsatz [d. i. "Die Ex-libris-Sammlung des Grafen zu Leuningen-Westerburg" im Börsenblatt f. d. dt. Buchhandel 68 (1901), S. 1421-24]. Ich werde mich aber besinnen, ob ich Paul Ehrenberg damit ennuyiren soll; ich fürchte, all diese anspruchsvolle und graue Theorie würde ihn nur verwirren und kopfscheu machen. Laß ihn aus! Er wird schon in netter Weise etwas Hübsches zustande bringen. Was er ungefähr machen soll, muß er sehen; das Dociren ist da nicht am Platze. [Zwei Wörter getilgt] Übrigens will ich ihn fürs Erste nicht mahnen, sondern warten, bis er von selbst auf die Sache zurückkommt. - Nein, meine Laune war nicht schlecht, als ich gestern nach Hause ging. Ich hielt es kurz nach 11 Uhr nur vor Müdigkeit nicht länger aus und verabschiedete mich. Übrigens hatte ich Dich ja auf mein Verschwinden vorbereitet. Ich war lange Zeit mit Ehrenbergs, Junghans [der Kunstakademieschüler Julius Paul Junghanns] und den Amerikanern zusammen. Junghans ist ein sehr angenehmer Mensch: das Genre Paul Ehrenberg, soweit ich gesehen habe, nur viel stiller. Bist Du schließlich noch einmal mit Ehrenbergs zusammengetroffen? Ich konnte mich bedauerlicher Weise nur von Carl verabschieden, der am Tische saß, während Paul, den ich vergebens gesucht hatte, sich gerade auch seinerseits auf der Suche nach mir befand [...] Herr Gott, nein, ich verachte Dich nicht! Wie kommst Du darauf! Wenn Du mir einen großen Gefallen thun willst, so sprich nur von dem pfiffigen kleinen Geschöpf, das von Deinem schönen Herzen Besitz ergriffen hat, nicht mehr als von 'Deinem Mädel'. Denn erstens ist diese Bezeichnung ja nicht zutreffend und zweites wirkt sie auch gar zu zusammenziehend. Im Übrigen bin ich überzeugt, daß Du Dich kolossal falsch benommen hast. Die Franzosen sagen: Wenn der Deutsche graziös sein will, so springt er zum Fenster hinaus. Etwas Ähnliches gilt meistens auch von 'uns Todten', wenn wir 'erwachen', d. i. wenn wir einmal Menschen sein möchten. Meistens! Es gehört sehr viel Geschmack und Stilgefühl dazu, da nicht zu outriren, sich nicht zu verzerren. Na, Stil ... es weiß eben nicht Jeder, was das ist: nicht einmal alle Mitarbeiter des Börsenblattes für den deutschen Buchhandel. Ehrlich: (und Du weißt das ja auch) Du machst mich nervös, wenn Du Fasching spielst, und schon darum bin ich froh, daß der Fasching vorüber ist. Nervös machtest Du mich zum Beispiel (und augenscheinlich nicht nur mich) durch das blöde Gekreisch, mit dem Du gestern im Café L[uitpold] Paul Ehrenberg empfingst. Es ist dumm und roh, zu glauben, daß dies, selbst in der Fastnacht, die richtige Art ist, ihm zu begegnen. Dir kann es ja gleichgültig sein, was er von Dir denkt, da hast Du Recht. Ich fürchte nur, daß er manchmal nicht weiß, was uns - Dich und mich - eigentlich verbindet. - Nichts für ungut übrigens! Wir haben schließlich Aschermittwoch. Und damit, daß am Sonntag der Carneval bei meiner Schwester [Julia Löhr] noch ein kleines Nachspiel haben soll, bin ich durchaus einverstanden [...]". Kl. Ein- und -ausrisse (ohne Textverlust). - Nach Grautoffs Tod im Pariser Exil erwarb der Verleger Kurt Leo Maschler (1898-1986) die Korrespondenzsammlung von dessen Witwe Erna Grautoff. Nach Maschlers Flucht aus Österreich 1938 wurde der zurückgelassene Bestand von der Gestapo der ÖNB überstellt und von dieser in deren Autographensammlung einsigniert (am unteren Rand die ÖNB-Signatur von 1939: Autogr. 141/58-65). 1949 wurde die Sammlung an Maschler rückgestellt (vgl.

        Autograph letter signed ("Ernest H. Shackleton"). [London, c. 1901].

      1901. 8vo. 2 pp. To Cyril Longhurst, secretary to the British National Antarctic Expedition: "I have been awfully busy. I do hope you got the list of books all right on Monday. I enclose a cheque from Sir Joseph Verdin Bart. Will you acknowledge it officially. I hope to see you tomorrow old chap." After his signature, Shackleton adds, "Address all letters 30 Gloucester S." - In 1901, Shackleton was chosen to participate in the Antarctic expedition, where he was responsible for seawater analysis, meals, and provisions. The stress of preparing for that voyage evident as the "awfully busy" sailor ties up some loose ends before shoving off. Most likely, "the list of books" were requested to accompany the crew on the upcoming voyage, which departed London on 31 July 1901. In 1904, Shackleton married, with his "old chap" Cyril tapped as best man. - In fine, clean condition.
