Meakin's interest in Morocco began at an early age when his father relocated to Tangier in 1884 and opened the first English newspaper.He was just 18 at the time but "at once studied the Moorish people and their language. Adopting native dress and the native name Tahar bil Mikki, he mixed freely with all classes, soon mastered the Moorish dialect of Arabic. and closely observed Moorish life" (ODNB) In 1891 he published an English-Arabic dictionary, though the three volumes here are considered his greatest contribution to the study of Morocco, providing a comprehensive overview of its history, geography, trade, customs and so forth. There is also an account of his travels disguised as a Moor.

        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.

Whitman Manuscript Edition. A choice copy of the Author's Manuscript Edition with an autograph draft leaf from chapter 153 ("Hours of the Soul") of Specimen Days, presenting the entire "East" subsection, beginning, "What a subject for a poem! Indeed, where else a more pregnant, more splendid one? Where one more idealistic-real, more subtle, more sensuous-delicate?" The manuscript incorporates three line from "The Errand Bearers," a poem that was later retitled "A Broadway Pageant" and included in the 1871 edition of Leaves of Grass. The manuscript has a number of strike-throughs and emendations, some in purple ink, and a note that the three-line quote from "The Errand Bearers" should be set in "smaller type." Any portion of Leaves of Grass in Whitman's hand is desirable.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Gustav Mahler").

      Wien, 21. I. 1902.. 2½ SS. auf Doppelblatt mit Adresse am Gegenblatt verso. Kl.-4to.. Gefühlvoller Brief an den Klavierfabrikanten Friedrich Ehrbar (1827-1905), den Präsidenten der Wiener Singakademie: "Verehrter Herr Ehrbar! Ich weiß, daß heute Abend 'geprobt' wird; und da ist es mir ein beinahe wehmüthiges Gefühl, daß ich da nicht mehr dabei bin. So schnell gewöhnt man sich an was Schönes, und das waren mir wieder nach langer Zeit die beiden Proben, die mich mit Ihnen in doppeltem Sinne künstlerisch vereinigten. - Es ist also - hoffentlich nicht für immer - wieder aus, und mir erübrigt heute nur, nach so rühmlich vollbrachter That, Ihnen Allen aufs herzlichste für so viel Antheil und thatkräftigster erfolgreichsten Mitarbeit zu danken. 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. Nochmals herzlichsten Gruß und Dank [...]".
