        Lieder des Ghetto ubertragen aus dem Judischen von Berthold Freiwel, illustriert von E M Lilien

      Berlin: Cavalry, 1902. Zweites Tausend. Original publisher's decorated cloth designed by Lilien. IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, two abraisions on facing pages from binders glue (?) otherwise in fine original state. Quarto. 144, [7] pp. including final advertisement. Profusely illustrated throughout by E.M. Lilien with borders and decorations on every page, and a number of full or double-page illustrations OUTSTANDING COPY, APPARENTLY PRINTED ON FINE PAPER. Ephraim Moses Lilien (1874-1925) has often been described as the first artist of the Zionist Movement, or even labeled at times the "first Zionist artist." Lilien's "Lieder des Ghetto" is one of his first published books (he was only 28 years of age) and one of masterpieces. His meticulous and imaginative renderings are perfectly suited to Rosenfeld's passionate songs of immigrant Jews and the plight of American sweatshops. It was this work that inspired Stefan Zweig's 1903 monograph, "E.M. Lilien und sein Werk." "The illustration for the poem 'Der Judische Mai' ('The Jewish May') with its unabashedly emotional depiction of an old Jew who, bound with thorns and guarded by snakes, stretches his arms with a tearful and yearning look toward the sun which rises over an enchanted dream-vision of a Zion underneath which flows a meandering river bedecked with lush vegetation and palm trees. For the Diaspora Jew yearning for a Zion he had never seen, few images can equal this one in its direct emotional appeal (in this respect, it is far superior to the 'Passah' illustration). Some of the illustrations of Lieder des Ghetto convey a hidden sense of uneasiness. It is not just a matter of sinister bats and vampires, or snakes rearing their heads in the border decoration. In a less obtrusive manner, it is introduced even in the illustration for the poem "Mein Kind," which follows a long Romantic tradition of portraits of children, whose innocence and purity find their counterparts in flowers and other creations of unspoiled nature. Here, though, this innocence seems to be threatened, since the heart-shaped frame surrounding the child's head is made of thorns. Such an almost undefined quality of bizarreness, even perverseness, can also be discerned in the illustration for the poem "The Creation of Men." It is not so much that the image of Herzl, as one of the angels present at the creation of man, is shown practically naked, although this does have a somewhat bizarre effect" (SOURCE: Haim Finkelstein, Lilien and Zionism, passim). Berthold Feiwel, writing in the "Forward" to Rosenfeld's "Lieder des Ghetto" perceived a call to action in song: "The poet of the modern ghetto will become the singer of modern Zionism, of the powerful liberation movement of a vital Jewishness, which will lead the Jews out of the new imprisonment [of modernity] into the ancient homeland, into their piece and their freedom." Lilien was the foremost contributor to the early visual vocabulary of the Zionist Movement, and some of his images have persistently kept a firm hold on the imagination of later generations. He was, furthermore, actively involved over a period of years with the Zionist Movement, and served as representative to the Sixth Zionist Congress. He was one of the founders of the Judischer Verlag, the Jewish publishing company in Berlin whose publications propagated the artistic and literary output of the Jewish Renaissance. He also took part in establishing the Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem. IN EVERY WAY A WONDEROUS BOOK -- MUST BE SEEN TO BE FULLY APPRECIATED.

Wenn ich Ihnen ausspreche, daß mir die Singakademie hier in Wien zu einer engeren musikalischen Heimath geworden, so fühle ich es sehr wol, daß auch Sie mir den Platz unter Ihnen gerne gegönnt, und wenn es die Gelegenheit einmal wieder will, auf's Neue einräumen werden. - Wenn Sie mich rufen, werde ich zur Stelle sein.

        Archive collection, consisting of preliminary studies and drafts for his magnum opus "Geschlecht und Charakter" ("Sex and Character") as well as for "Eros und Psyche", together with notes and autobiographical writings.

      [Vienna], c. 1899-1902. - Altogether c. 700 pp., mainly written in Weininger's meticulous handwriting, but also including some more perfunctory pages in Latin script, some shorthand. Numerous corrections and deletions. Some browning and wrinkling, occasional paper flaws to edges. Various formats, but mostly 4to (34 x 21 cm), as well as a few pieces in-8vo and small formats. Well preserved altogether. Extensive and previously unknown partial estate of the ill-fated Austrian philosopher. Of outstanding importance for a scholarly study of the textual development of Weininger's principal work as well as for the biography of the controversial philosopher. The present collection mainly comprises preliminary studies and working drafts for his dissertation "Eros und Psyche", as well as for "Geschlecht und Charakter" ("Sex and Character"), the notorious magnum opus which he expanded from his dissertation. Also included are numerous citations and excerpts from Weininger's literary studies, several library order slips, some exercise books and letters, a portrait, and a short autobiographical statement, as well as his father's written permission that Otto learn how to handle a gun. - Weininger's major work, a precocious study of the relationship of sex and character which earned the author his Ph.D. degree, was dismissed at first but gained immediate popularity after he shot himself at the age of 23. The work remains a key document of Vienna fin-de-siècle thinking. In spite of his rabid misogyny and antisemitism, Weininger was considered genius by the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein as well as the writer August Strindberg.

Uniformly bound in later dark green quarter morocco over cream linen boards, spines with raised bands, gilt lettered to three panels and decorated to the others. Profusely illustrated throughout. A very good set. One of the great historical and topographical descriptions of London. Besant was commissioned to compile the survey in the 1890s, under-supported by the publishers who "relied too much on Besant's talents and money - both already hopelessly over-stretched". The set was published posthumously between 1902 and 1912.

        Daphnis et Chloe

      1902. BONNARD, Pierre. Daphnis et Chloe. By Longus. [x], 294 pp. Illustrated with 151 lithographs printed in black by Bonnard. 4to., bound in full green morocco by Creuzevault, in a matching slipcase. Paris: Ambroise Vollard, 1902. |~||~||~||~||~| A fine copy of Bonnard's second great book, a work that has spent over a century in the shadow of its more famous predecessor Parallèlement. Although unappreciated at the time of publication (as was Parallèlement), "the book today is considered one of the finest of the period" (Garvey, The Artist and the Book, p. 26). Vollard originally planned to publish the book accompanied by woodcuts by Maurice Denis. However, Bonnard became enthralled with the book and produced his illustrations at great speed, which resulted in them being chosen by Vollard. Unlike the radical layout of Parallèlement, Daphnis and Chloe reverts to a more formal style of layout without any reduction of the impact of the illustrations. This is an exceptionally fine copy, with a hint of rubbing on the hinges, free from the foxing which mars so many copies, and in an elegant, restrained binding by Creuzevault. PROVENANCE: Francis Kettaneh with his ex-libris. Francis Bouvet, Bonnard. The Complete Graphic Work 75. The Artist and the Book 28. Rauch 22. Rewald, Pierre Bonnard 145. Terrasse 42.

      Berlin, Graphische Gesellschaft, (1902). - Circa 24 x 37 cm. 4 Blatt, 268 Tafeln u. 620 Photographien. Original-Halbleder mit Wappenprägung. Sehr seltenes, in nur kleiner Auflage für Freunde erschienenes Werk, nicht im Handel erschienen; hier Nummer 38. Nur sehr wenige Bibliotheken weltweit (in Deutschland nur bei Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin u. das Exemplar ist nicht mal vollständig) besitzen das Buch u. zumal auch noch in schlechterem Zustand. Der Diplomat Alfons Mumm von Schwarzenstein (1859-1924) stammte aus der grossen Champagner- und Weinhändlerfamilie und ist heute neben seinen politischen Verdiensten besonders für sein bedeutendes dokumentarisches Werk als Photograph bekannt. Über Singapore und Shanghai kam er im Jahr 1900 als Nachfolger des in den Boxer-Aufständen ermordeten Gesandten Baron Clemens von Ketteler nach Peking, wo er eine chinafreundliche Linie der deutschen Politik durchzusetzen versuchte und in diesem Sinne auch auf den Leiter des Expeditionskorps Alfred von Waldersee einwirkte. Für seine Verdienste um die deutsch-chinesische Verständigung wurden ihm mehrere hohe Orden verliehen und zum Abschied eine von der chinesischen Kaiserinwitwe Cixi selbst verfertigte Hängerolle überreicht. - Sein Photoalbum, das er in kleiner Auflage für Freunde reproduzieren liess, bildet eine wertvolle Fundgrube an Bildmaterial für das Leben und die Architektur in China um 1900. Wiedergegeben sind viele Straßenszenen, Bildern von Tsingtau, vom Yangtse, aus Süd-China, vom Nankou-Paß, von den östlichen und westlichen Minggräbern sowie sehr vielen Ansichten aus der Verbotenen Stadt, einzelne Gebäude, Berufsgruppen, Geschäfte, Strassenzüge etc. Gut erhalten, nur die erste zwei Textblätter leicht geknickt.

        "Richard Strauß und der Symbolismus". Eigenh. Manuskript mit U.

      O. O. u. D.. 13 SS. auf 13 num. Bll. Folio.. "Ich habe in einem einführenden Artikel zu meiner symph. Dichtung 'Fata Morgana' (Berliner Signale No 1) den Symbolismus in der Musik kurz berührt und dabei Richard Strauß erwähnt, und bin natürlich wie das nun einmal bei kurzen Erwähnungen meistens der Fall ist, mißverstanden worden. Man wirft mir vor, ich hätte die symph. Dichtungen von Richard Strauß für Verirrungen erklärt. Da ich es aber für keine Ehre halte, als ein Gegner der Strauß'schen Musik zu gelten, so möchte ich mich gegen diesen Vorwurf verwahren. Wörtlich habe ich am Schlusse meines Artikels folgendes gesagt [...]". - Karl Gleitz studierte am Leipziger Konservatorium und an der Musikhochschule in München bei Josef Gabriel Rheinberger. Später ging er nach Berlin, wo er sich in Privatstunden weiterbildete und auch Erfolge als Komponist feiern konnte. Seit 1902 war Gleitz in Hamburg und Kiel als Musiklehrer tätig. Sein Werk umfaßt Lieder, Klavierstücke und symphonische Dichtungen. - Etwas gebräunt und mit kleinen Randläsuren.

        Journal of the Calvert Scientific Exploring Expedition, 1896-7: Equipped at the Request and Expense of Albert F. Calvert, Esq., F.R.G.S., London, for the purpose of exploring the remaining blanks of Australia

      Government Printer., Perth 1902 - Folio, 62 pp., with a large folding lithographic map measuring 890 x 648 mm., an excellent copy half crimson morocco with gilt lettering by Sangorski. Incomprehensible suffering and despair. Official account of the scientific expedition financed by the wealthy English traveller Albert Calvert, dispatched 'for the purpose of exploring the remaining blanks of Australia'.Lawrence Allen Wells (1883-1932) was an Australian born surveyor who rose to prominence for continuing the work of the Elder Scientific Expedition after it collapsed under the leadership of David Lindsay. Accurate and understated, Wells won the esteem of the Adelaide scientific community and attracted the attention of Albert Calvert who insisted that Wells lead his expedition. Accompanied by his cousin Charles Wells and other scientific companions, the Calvert Expedition of 1896 passed through the Murchison goldfields, and headed north to the Fitzroy River. At Midway Well the party split intending to meet at Joanna Spring, some 300 kilometres to the north. The first group led by Wells' cousin perished in the attempt. Unable to locate Joanna Spring (incorrectly mapped by 30 kilometres to the east by Warburton some years earlier) the second group barely survived an incomprehensible 13 day march of some 220 kilometres over sand hills with no water before reaching the safety of Noonkanbah station on the Fitzroy River.
