        Autograph Document of the Kartell Lyrischer Autoren

      An important autograph document shedding light on the internal workings of the "Kartell lyrischer Autoren," the cartel founded in 1902 to protect the rights of German lyric authors to earn money from their writing. Founded by Richard Dehmel and Arno Holz, the cartel soon grew to more than a hundred members. The document, dated 1910, is an autograph letter from the German lyric poet and Kartell committee member, Carl Busse to the other members of the committee, with autograph responses following on the same sheet from Richard Dehmel, Gustav Falke, Arno Holz, Paul Heyse, and Hugo von Hoffmannsthal. It deals with a disagreement among the committee: Alfred Mombert has been elected to the committee, but questions have been raised about the election process. Carl Busse's letter suggests another election following a new procedure, to which the other members respond. Richard Dehmel writes: "I stand by my vote for Mombert, but have nothing against proceeding according to Herr Busse's suggestion at a future election. Incidentally, it is not yet at all certain that Mombert will accept the nomination." In fact, Mombert did not join the committee in 1910, but only in 1914, after the death of Paul Heyse.4 pp. Folding creases and light toning; overall in fine condition. 21 x 33 cm. See:Wolfgang Martens: Lyrik kommerziell: das Kartell lyrischer Autoren 1902-1933. (Fink, 1975)Peter Sprengel: Geschichte der deutschsprachigen Literatur, 1900-1918: von der Jahrhundertwende bis zum Ende des ersten Weltkriegs.

" he was the first successful comic strip character to achieve a popularity so great that he not only increased the sales of newspapers carrying him, but he was also the first to demonstrate that a comic strip character could be merchandised profitably. In fact, for these two reasons, the Yellow Kid and his creator, R. F. Outcault, are generally credited with permanently establishing the comic strip and making it a part of American society." "When the interest in 'Yellow Kid' cooled down around 1901, Outcault created new features, such as 'Lil' Mose', the first strip with a black as its principal character, in James Gordon Bennett's New York Herald. " Pore Lil Mose is "ranked among the five most valuable Platinum Age Comics by Overstreet". .

        The priest and the acolyte (honi soit qui y pense)

      no place [London]: Privately Printed for Presentation Only [Smithers], [1902-1905?]. Paperback. 44p., 7x8.5 inches, [limited to 50 copies] mild toning to margins, first separate edition slim saddle-stapled paperback in printed green wraps, spinechipped, edges chipped, rear cover present but detached. This short tale of the seduction of an altar boy by a priest and their subsequent suicides was first published anonymously in the single issue of "The Chameleon: Voluem 1, Number 1, December 1894" The magazine was edited by John Francis Bloxham (who was later revealed to be the author of the story) The story was misattributed to Oscar Wilde who denied authorship and considered the story to be too direct. Wilde was however a contributor of epigrams to the magazine and it was that magazine and this tale that contributed to the charges against Wilde in his infamous trials in 1895. This edition has a copyright date of 1894 (the date of the magazine appearance) but several sources indicate a much later date between 1902 and 1905 (see Nelson "Publisher to the Decadents: Leonard Smithers in the Careers of Beardsley, Wilde, and Dowson" 350) In 1907 another edition was published by Lotis Press revealing the true author.

        THE PHOTO-SECESSION (Founded February 17, 1902). Nos. 1-6.

      New York: Alfred Stieglitz, 1902-1905. First edition. Stieglitz, Alfred. 6 issues. Small 8vos. No. 1 December 1902, (4) pp.; No. 2 April 1903, (4) pp.; No. 3 October 1903, (8) pp.; No. 4 February 1904, (8) pp.; No. 5 May 1904, (8) pp.; No. 6 February 1905, (8) pp. . Bound into simple gray paper over boards which shows moderate staining; the contents are fine and bright. Housed in a newly made clamshell box of cloth with a morocco panel and spine label. Alfred Stieglitz, after leaving the Camera Club of New York and serving as the editor of their official organ, Camera Notes, issued these six pamphlets as his "rallying cry" for a new movement in photography, the Photo-Secession, a distinctly American Pictorialist approach to the art. These missives outline his vision for the movement, its direction and criteria for inclusion in this most exclusive group. Notices of future exhibitions are printed with requests for the submission of prints, these include the Wiesbaden International Pictorial Photographic Portrait Exhibition; St. Petersburg International Photographic Exhibition; salons in Paris, Toronto, Minneapolis, Cleveland, etc., etc. The Exhibition Notes in issue No. 4 (February 1904) announced the edition de luxe catalogue for the Pittsburgh show of 1904 (see the next entry below). Each issue lists new members, a synopsis of the monthly dinner, a brief financial statement, and awards issued to members at various exhibitions. OCLC locates a single issue at Yale and The Met, with a complete set at the British Library. Exceedingly rare. Additionally, laid in is a small envelope with "G. O'Keeffe" written in ink on the front and the imprinted return, "Mrs. Louis Stecker... Philadelphia, PA." on the rear flap. Stecker is the maiden name of Dorothy Norman, whose long and intimate relationship with Alfred Stieglitz is well known. Inside the envelope are the following; a halftone reproduction of a Stieglitz portrait of Georgia O'Keeffe from 1918; a commercially printed b&w silver gelatin photograph of O'Keeffe sitting in front of her painting, Farmhouse Window and Door,1929, made from a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch negative and printed on what appears to be photographic paper from the 1930s; and a densely exposed negative of O'Keeffe standing in front of two of her paintings, 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches. Alfred Stieglitz used a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch Graflex camera and in 1931 he gave Dorothy Norman the same camera which she used through much of her career. From the estate of Dorothy Norman.

        Animals in Motion. An Electro-Photographie Investigation of Consecutive Phases of Animal Progressive Movements. Commenced 1872. Completed 1885.

      Chapman & Hall,, London, 1902 - London, Chapman & Hall, 1902. Quer-2°. 4 n.n. + 264 S. OLwd. 2. Aufl. In engl Sprache. Mit der faksimilierten Widmung am Frontispiz. - Ebd. leicht berieben, Buchblock leicht gelockert, leichte Gbrsp. - Muybridge (1830-1904), wanderte in die USA aus und wurde dort zu einem der bekanntesten Fotografen des 19. Jahrhunderts. Seine verträumten Landschaftsbilder aus dem Yosemite Valley verkauften sich millionenfach, seine Dia-Vorträge wurden in Europa begeistert gefeiert - ein früher Starfotograf, der selbst die dunklen Seiten des Celebrity-Daseins idealtypisch vorweg nahm: 1874 erschoss er den Liebhaber seiner Frau, wurde in einem spektakulären Prozess dann aber freigesprochen. Die Jury zeigte Verständnis für den Rachedurst des gehörnten Ehemannes. Zudem kam der Mann mit dem wild wuchernden Bart bei seinen Experimenten dem Geheimnis des Bewegtbildes auf die Spur - und schrieb so Geschichte: Muybridges Bewegungsstudien von Rennpferden bildeten den Grundstein für das Kino, zwanzig Jahre vor den Brüdern Lumière. Nicht nur hatte er Wissenschaft und Technik einen entscheidenden Schritt vorangebracht. Seine Bewegungsstudien von Tieren und Menschen wurden auch zu einer Inspirationsquelle für Generationen von Künstlern. (Zitat nach Carsten Volkery). - Beiliegend die wissenschaftliche Grundlage für seine Fotografie: Étienne-Jules MAREY, La Locomotion Animale. Extrait du Traite de Physique Biologique, Tome 1er. (Paris, Masson et Cie., 1877). Mit einer eighd. Widm. von Marey. - Marey, (1830 -1904), studierte zunächst an der Ecole polytechnique in Beaume und seit 1850 in Paris Medizin. Er spezialisierte sich auf Physiologie und Pathophysiologie des Kreislaufsystems. Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt bei Carl Ludwig in Wien, kehrte er 1860 nach Paris zurück. Er war ein Pionier auf den Gebieten der Blutmessung, graphischen Aufzeichnungstechnik, wissenschaftlicher Photographie, Luftfahrt und Kinematographie. Ab 1870 erweiterte er sein Interesse auf technische Erfindungen zum Studium biologischer Bewegungsphänomene, die ebenfalls in dem vorliegenden Sonderdruck abgebildet sind.

        A Modern Miracle

      London Ward Lock 1902. 8vo. 318pp. + 2pp. ads. Bound in original deep red cloth titled and decorated in gilt and white to spine and front board, Minor edgewear and fading of the white paint, still very handsome. A very good copy. Mild bumping to extremities. Foredge untrimmed. Internally clean; W.H. Smith blindstamp to front flyleaf, ink ownership to same (F. R. Hayne Cook, Moulton Hall 1902). A scarce and actually rather important piece of science fiction dealing with the experimental creation of what is essentially a bionic man, throw in some references to television, and visual recording devices, an "elixir of death" and possibly one the earliest references to animal experimentation and you have a serious piece of science fiction. Pre-dates Beresford's "Hampdenshire Wonder" in the superhuman stakes and hardly anyone seems to have paid any attention to it. A very respectable copy of an influential and overlooked title.

        Astrologia Gallica [manuscript French translation of books 22-24; Directions, Revolutions, Passages]

      1902. Hardcover (Vellum). Good Condition. Full contemporary vellum, spine perished, tears to vellum on rear cover, binding still generally sound. Paper uniformly browned, a few small tears to page edges, fine otherwise. A 1902 manuscript translation of books 22-24 of Morin's 1661 Astrologia Gallica into French. 315 leaves written on one side with a detailed table of contents. (12), 315pp. Signed Etienne Dercaisay(?) and dated May 22, 1902 on the final page. An opponent of Gallileo (and Descartes, among others), Morin wrote the 26 books of the Astrologia Gallica but did not live to see them published (he died in 1659 and they were published in 1661). The early books provide the theoretical basis in theology for his work, while the later books discuss natal, judicial, mundane, electional and meteorological astrology. Pieces were translated into Spanish in the 19th century and French and German in the early 20th including book 21 into French in 1902, a French translation of book 25 was done in the 1940s and other books appeared in English beginning in 1974 (including book 21, published by NY City bookseller and astrologer Zoltan Mason - this book, though unmarked, is from his collection) and then a series of translations into English starting with book 22 in 1994. Size: Octavo (8vo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Science & Technology; Magic, Paranormal & Occult. Inventory No: 045866.

        The Works.

      New York: D. Appleton & Company,, 1902. 13 volumes, octavo. Original red buckram, decorative paper label to spines, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Engraved frontispieces. Contemporary bookplate to front pastedowns. Faint partial tanning to endpapers. An excellent set with exceptionally bright cloth and labels. The Author's Edition, the rare US issue, which, unlike the UK edition, includes The Hound of the Baskervilles. The omission was due to the fact that the author wanted a set that contained only the works for which he wanted to be credited, as he states in the preface: "Outside of this edition there is no work of mine up to this date which I do not willingly suppress." Limited to 1,000 sets, of which this is number 54.

        The Adventures of Romney Pringle.

      London Ward Lock 1902. 8vo. 198pp + 2pp ads. Publisher's bright red cloth titled in gilt to spine and front board, decorated in white to bottom right front board. White decoration slightly rubbed but still strong and clear, most unusual for this title. Minor edgewear and bumping, sunning to spine with dulling to spine gilt, a very good copy indeed. Internally clean, ink number and W.H. Smith blind stamp to front flyleaf. Clean, sharp and tight, a very good copy indeed. Scarce.#An early foray into crime writing from Freeman, most famous for Dr. Thorndyke. Pringle, first released upon the world via Cassell's Magazine, is a gentleman con artist, master of disguise and all round hunter of other criminals. Much in the vein of Raffles, this criminous rarity has fallen recently among the ranks of forgotten titles. Thoroughly splendid.#
