Kirchner, Ernst Ludwig, Maler (1880-1938).
Dieser überaus seltene Holzschnitt Kirchners, von dem nur einige Probeabzüge existieren, entstand als Illustration zu einer Erzählung mit dem Titel "Pére Perdrix" (1902) von Charles-Louis Philippe. Ein Abdruck zu dieser Erzählung kam nicht zustande. Der Holzschnitt zeigt die Titelfigur der Erzählung, einen erblindeten Schmied, mit dunkler Brille und Stock auf einer niedrigen Bank sitzend, wie er zu Beginn der Erzählung geschildert wird. - Tiefschwarzer, differenzierter Druck vor Reduzierung des Stockes. - Dube 930, Zustand I (von 2). Schiefler, Bd. II, S. 225 (mit Abbildung als Vignette). - Postkarte an den Kunsthistoriker Curt Glaser in Berlin: "Sehr geehrter Herr Professor, ich würde mit Vergnügen Ihnen für die Neuauflage Ihres Buches den Stock dieses Holzschnittes zur verfügung stellen. Wenn Sie wollen, könnten Sie ihn als Vignette irgendwo am Kapitelanfang drucken. Betreffs der anderen Abbildungen bin ich dabei, 3 andere Blätter zu photographieren, die wird Ihnen Westheimer mit den neuen Bedingungen zusenden. Den Holzschnittakt möchte ich wegen seiner schwachen Umsetzung ungern senden. Aber wenn Sie eine gute Abbildung wollen, könnte ich eine der Landschaften dazu geben. Ich halte diese Landschaften nicht für so besonders trefflich. Ich habe bessere Holzschnitte gemacht, auch ist der Akt die einzige wirklich gute Abbildung [...] Ich schreibe Ihnen noch darüber. Ich werde mich freuen, Sie hier zu sehen. In Liebe Ihr ELKirchner." - Am Seitenrand neben dem Holzschnitt die eigenh. Bezeichnung "Illustration zu Charles Louis Philippe Père Perdrix". - Kirchner bietet hier Gla … [Click Below for Full Description]

La Cité Future. Essai d'une utopie scientifique. Paris, P.-V. Stock, 1902 [imprimerie A. Pichat, Châtillon-sur-Seine]. 1 volume in-12 (18,5 x 11,5 cm) de 484 pages. Reliure de l'époque demi-chagrin noir, dos à nerfs, filets dorés, initiales V. B. en queue.

Exemplaire sur papier d'édition. Il n' a été tiré que 5 exemplaires sur papiers de Hollande. Cet ouvrage important contient un programme politique et social novateur basé sur le collectivisme et le socialisme pratique. Loin des idéologies pures, il s'agit ici de créer un nouveau modèle de société. Ernest Tarbouriech (1865-1911) était docteur en droit. Il publia en 1896 un essai sur La Responsabilité des accidents dont les ouvriers sont victimes dans leur travail, et il enseigna au Collège des sciences sociales de Bruxelles dont il fut l'un des fondateurs. Dreyfusard et militant de la première heure à la Ligue des Droits de l'Homme, il adhère au parti socialiste en 1900. Il fut l'un des intellectuels qui contribua à forger la doctrine socialiste. Il fut un grand défenseur des droits des femmes. En 1910, moins d'un an avant sa mort, il est élu député S.F.I.O. du Jura.

Robinson, W. Heath
London: Grant Richards, 1902. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Robinson, W. Heath. First printing, octavo size, 135 pp. William Heath Robinson (1872-1944) was an exemplary book illustrator and cartoonist, "the only British illustrator to become a 'household name'" (Houfe), a contemporary of acclaimed illustrators Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac, best known for his cartoons portraying elaborate and whimsical machinary made to complete simple tasks. In fact, his fame was such that the term "Heath Robinson" was used in the United Kingdom to refer to such machinary, much as the term "Rube Goldberg" was used in the United States. "The Adventures of Uncle Lubin" is a fantastical tale of daring and danger, and is an early example of depictions of the complex machinary for which Robinson would become known; the book is replete with illustrations, often full-page, that bring the story and characters vividly to life. ___DESCRIPTION: Full teal blue cloth, with debossed illustrations in red, grey, and white on the front and rear boards and spine, white and blue lettering on the front board, blue lettering on the spine, all edges rough cut, light grey endpapers with line drawings in burgundy, frontispiece a colour illustration by W.

Actual Size / Groesse der Radierung: 29 x 53.5 cm. Excellent condition ! [Graepler 38] Otto Ubbelohde (* 5. Januar 1867 in Marburg an der Lahn; † 8. Mai 1922 in Goßfelden) war Maler, Radierer und Illustrator. Teile seines Werkes werden dem Jugendstil zugeordnet. Otto Ubbelohde wuchs in Marburg auf. Sein Vater August Ubbelohde war Professor für römisches Recht an der Universität Marburg. Das Geburtshaus stand in unmittelbarer Nähe zur Elisabethkirche in der Elisabethstr. 9. Es wurde 1966 abgerissen. Die wohl durch die Familie der Mutter Therese, geb. Unger, ererbte künstlerische Begabung zeigte sich früh, doch gab der Vater dem Sohn nur ungern die Erlaubnis, sich nach dem bestandenen Abitur am Gymnasium Philippinum Marburg zum Maler ausbilden zu lassen. Nach kurzem Aufenthalt an der Kunstakademie der Großherzoglich Sächsischen Kunstschule Weimar (heute Bauhaus-Universität Weimar) wurde Otto Ubbelohde von 1884 bis 1890 an der Münchner Kunstakademie Schüler von Gabriel von Hackl, Johann Caspar Herterich, Wilhelm von Diez und Ludwig von Löfftz. Er wohnte mehr als ein Jahrzehnt in München und hatte Kontakt zur Künstlerkolonie Dachau. Von München aus reiste er 1889 nach Worpswede, wo sich gerade die Künstlerkolonie Worpswede bildete; 1894/95 arbeitete er nochmals dort. In den dazwischen liegenden Jahren hielt er sich im Sommer zeichnend und malend am Neckar und auf der Insel Reichenau auf. Nac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Beatrix Potter
London: Frederick Warne & Co. This is a true Collectors Item, printed in 1902, First Edition. It shows some wear which is expected for a book of this age. The binding needs repairing, and there are a couple of loose pages. Inscription in the front cover as shown in the photos. This is known as the First Edition, and was bound in either brown or gray boards with a color illustration of Peter in his light blue jacket mounted to the front board with white lettering above and below and to the spine. The Tale of Peter Rabbit was the first of the thirteen early "Peter Rabbit" Series which were published between 1902 and 1918. The Story of Peter Rabbit was originally conceived by Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) whilst on holiday with her family at Eastwood, Dunkeld, Scotland. Through the 1890s, Beatrix Potter sent illustrated story letters to the children of her former governess, Annie Moore. On September 4th, 1893 she wrote a 'picture letter' and sent it to Moore's eldest son Noël. This five year old boy was the recipient of what has become one of the most famous letters ever written. "Sep[tember] 4th, [18]93. My dear Noel, I don't know what to write to you, so I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits whose names were Flopsy, Mopsy Cottontail, and Peter." (Judy Taylor. Beatrix Potter's Letters, pp. 19-27). The Tale of Peter Rabbit was to become one of the preeminent children's books of the twentieth century, and firmly established Beatrix Potter as a popular author and illustrator.

New York: Brentano's, 1902. Robinson, W. Heath. First Edition. First US edition, first printing, octavo size, 135 pp. William Heath Robinson (1872-1944) was an exemplary book illustrator and cartoonist, "the only British illustrator to become a 'household name'" (Houfe), a contemporary of acclaimed illustrators Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac, best known for his cartoons portraying elaborate and whimsical machinary made to complete simple tasks. In fact, his fame was such that the term "Heath Robinson" was used in the United Kingdom to refer to such machinary, much as the term "Rube Goldberg" was used in the United States.

Il publia en 1896 un essai sur La Responsabilité des accidents dont les ouvriers sont victimes dans leur travail, et il enseigna au Collège des sciences sociales de Bruxelles dont il fut l'un des fondateurs.

London, Jack; [Burns, M.J. (Illustrations)]
New York: The Century Co, 1902. Burns, M.J. First Edition. First printing in book form, duodecimo size, 264 pp. Jack London's (1876-1916) fourth published work (October of 1902) and his only juvenile novel, first published in St. Nicholas Magazine a few months earlier (July 1902 - hence their name being on the book's title page). Although London would not become truly famous until publication of "The Call of the Wild" in July of 1903, he was already well-known through his newspaper reporting and short stories. "The Cruise of the Dazzler" is a semi-autobiographical account of a young man who quits school and joins the crew of an oyster pirate boat plying the waters of San Francisco Bay. In fact London did own a boat called "Razzle Dazzle" and was involved in the theft of oysters, although he later worked guarding the same waters. With a total of six illustrations by Milton James Burns (1853-1933) who "was one of America's best-known marine artists and a prolific illustrator....who was a life-long sailor; ...his first venture at sea was with William Bradford on the master's famous 1868 Arctic Expedition. Thereafter, Burns dedicated himself to marine art and spent most of his life as an adventurer. In 1871, he and a group of fellow 'bohemians' founded the Salmagundi Club." He would eventually become friends with Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington, among other artists, eventually becoming a partner in a lithography business.

First edition. This is Pareto's second major work and an analysis of various types of socialism. The purpose of this book was to set out considered criticism of liberal beliefs, and therefore of any doctrine based solely on reason. Pareto maintained that socialism took advantage of the desire which every man has of transcending his own state, of imagining new roles for himself and his family, of building castles in the air and rationalizing them, of living in a better world. In this way socialism elaborated on powerful myths and political formulae which could be used to spur the masses into action and, through this action, bring about real changes in every sector of individual and collective life.(New Palgrave III, p. 802).

Text printed in black, illustrations printed variously in black, red, and blue. Original quarter cloth and color-printed boards, a very fine set as issued. § A complete set of the second series of The Elf - there was one volume for each season: Spring was published in May 1902; Summer in November 1902; Autumn in June 1903; Winter in February 1904. Each volume is completely written (poems and prose pieces) and illustrated by James Guthrie and each is limited to 250 numbered copies, this set being #204. In the first two volumes the limitation statement handwritten in pencil; in the third and fourth volumes it is printed (with the number being written in). Printed by Guthrie under the eye of W. Herbert Broome who founded the Old Bourne Press in May 1902 and designed the "Myrtle" type used here. The type later came into Guthrie's possession and he continued to use it in later Pear Tree Press books. Guthrie was in the great British tradition of artist-poet-printers beginning with William Blake, and Colin Franklin writes that "his series of poems, Frescoes from Buried Temples (1928), is an extraordinary production from poet and artist alike ... [the book] strikes me as among the three or four monumental achievements of private presses in the twentieth century; and by its originality of concept and content, the highest.".

BATESON, SAUNDERS, and PUNNETT
London: Royal Society, 1902-1909 [1910]. FIRST EDITIONS. A splendid association copy, from the library of Caroline Pellew with her signed inscription: C. Pellew Ink corrections taken from W. Bateson s corrections in his own copy. Caroline Pellew was a geneticist at the John Innes Horticultural Institution, founded in 1910, under its first director, William Bateson. There she served as his lieutenant, secretary, mentor and foil (Harman, The Man Who Invented the Chromosome). Pellew and Bateson collaborated on experiments on Mendelism and chromosome theory involving Pisum peas. These reports were the main vehicle for Mendelian publication in Britain until Bateson and Punnett began the Journal of Genetics in 1910 (DSB). They cover Bateson s career at the height of his powers. During this period he published his textbook of genetics (1902), proved that Mendelian inheritance applies to animals as well as plants, coined the term genetics (1905), and was the first to be named professor of genetics in Britain. Five volumes in one. Contemporary cloth, leather label. Near fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A very good better than average copy for this particular title which comes housed in a custom green clamshell box.

The British edition appeared June 9th, while the earliest notice in Publisher’s Weekly for the American Edition was June 21st. See the bibliographical discussion on pages 555-6 of the Harvard edition. Wozniak catalog #62. It comprises his edited Gifford Lectures on natural theology, which were delivered at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland in 1901 and 1902. The lectures concerned the nature of religion and the neglect of science in the academic study of religion. Soon after its publication, Varieties entered the Western canon of psychology and philosophy and has remained in print for over a century. It’s perhaps considered the greatest book ever published on the psychology of religion. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The Century Co, 1902. Burns, M.J. First Edition. Hardcover. First printing in book form, duodecimo size, 264 pp. Near fine. Jack London's (1876-1916) fourth published work (October of 1902) and his only juvenile novel, first published in St. Nicholas Magazine a few months earlier (July 1902 - hence their name being on the book's title page). Although London would not become truly famous until publication of "The Call of the Wild" in July of 1903, he was already well-known through his newspaper reporting and short stories. "The Cruise of the Dazzler" is a semi-autobiographical account of a young man who quits school and joins the crew of an oyster pirate boat plying the waters of San Francisco Bay. In fact London did own a boat called "Razzle Dazzle" and was involved in the theft of oysters, although he later worked guarding the same waters. With a total of six illustrations by Milton James Burns (1853-1933) who "was one of America's best-known marine artists and a prolific illustrator....who was a life-long sailor; ...his first venture at sea was with William Bradford on the master's famous 1868 Arctic Expedition. Thereafter, Burns dedicated himself to marine art and spent most of his life as an adventurer. In 1871, he and a group of fellow 'bohemians' founded the Salmagundi Club." He would eventually become friends with Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington, among other artists, eventually becoming a partner in a lithography business.

Archer, William (Editor); Bryden, Robert (Illustrator); Yeats, William Butler; Kipling, Rudyard; Housman, A.E.; Carman, Bliss
New York: John Lane The Bodley Head, 1902. First Edition. First edition. viii, 565, 10 (ads) pp. Original ribbed blue cloth decorated in gilt, gilt topstain. Very Good with slightly soiled and scratched cloth, spine gilt dulled, hinges starting, offsetting and foxing to prelims, name on paste down and a few pencil marks in margins. A scarce poetry anthology featuring Rudyard Kipling, Bliss Carman, A. E. Houseman, William Butler Yeats, and 29 other younger poets with incongruously antiquated Arts-and-Crafts-style woodcut portraits, mini-biographies, and selections of their work. It was conceived as a follow-up to the scandalous The Yellow Book, aimed at a similar readership, and took around five years for the editor to realize. (See Parker, Sarah "Framing the Woman Poet: William Archer's Poets of the Younger Generation."). Very Good.
