        Durch den Indischen Archipel. Eine Künstlerfahrt

      Stuttgart: Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt, 1902. Quarto; profusely illustrated including eight tipped-in colour plates; fine in original bevelled gilt boards. A lavishly-illustrated deluxe publication of the Danish artist Hugo V. Pedersen's sketch-journal of his five-year journey through the East Indies. Pedersen was born in Copenhagen in 1870, and trained as an artist in Denmark and Germany. In the mid-1890s he sailed to Sumatra, and then on to Penang and Singapore, which is described and illustrated in detail. However the bulk of his stay was spent in the Dutch East Indies, which afforded him the material for most of the sketches in this work. Pedersen's drawings reflect his fascination with the exotic culture of the East.

        The Life of a Bold AB on his Ship in the Rolling C

      London: Dean & Son, circa, 1902. Small folio rag book with 16 illustrated pages; some fraying to edges otherwise in very good condition. First edition: an unusually good copy of this attractive children's book with a wonderful naval theme. Tall and well-printed, this copy has almost none of the unravelling or "cropping" sometimes seen in a work which dates from before the introduction of pinking shears to strengthen the edges of each page. This alphabet book is the first of Henry Samuel Dean's famous rag books. It was Dean who popularised the format in the early twentieth century as a perfect introduction to reading for small children, chiefly because the material was so sturdy and, indeed, washable. His success with the format led him to establish "Dean's Rag Book Company", initially exclusively making rag books, but later expanded to produce a variety of toys. The illustrator, Will Kidd, published several children's books, including Baa Baa Black Sheep, also published by Dean. Here, Kidd's theme is the British Navy at the turn of the twentieth-century. Although most of the pages give rollicking images of Jacks and Tars enjoying life on the "C", there is also an interesting depiction at "K for the King", a silouhette of Edward VII. A particularly good page accompanies "V for the Victory", the British flagship of the Battle of Trafalgar, here immortalised in the lines: "V for the Victory / A relic of the past, / Although her timbers may decay, / Her fame will ever last." Interestingly, OCLC only lists electronic copies of this rare title; copies of the third edition of 1903 are known at the British Library and the Bodleian.

        Autograph letter signed in full to "Herr Levy"

      . 2-1/3 pp. of a bifolium. Dated [Berlin]-Charlottenburg, January 23, 1902. In German (with transcription and translation). Regarding a recommendation for the director of the Berliner Tonkünstlerorchester, Herr Strunz, and mentioning Strauss's "Singgedicht," Feursnot. Strunz "is looking for some patrons enthusiastic about the arts who could help him materially... Is it very outrageous of me to bother you with this? Since, however, I myself, too, am only guided by purely artistic interest in this enterprise, to which I contribute the greatest sacrifices of time and effort myself, perhaps you will forgive me... I am going to travel to Vienna tomorrow for the premiere of my opera..."Creased at folds and very slightly overall; slightly defective at inner fold, with four small file holes to blank areas filled in with matching paper, slightly affecting several letters. . We have been unable to identify Strauss's correspondent with certainty, although it is possible that he is the German composer and patron of the arts, Martin Levy (1836-1911). The Berliner Tonkünstlerorchester, an ensemble devoted to contemporary music, was founded by Strauss. Feuersnot ("Fire-Famine"), a "Singgedicht" or "sung poem" in one act to a libretto by Ernst von Wolzogen, was first performed at the Hofoper in Dresden on November 21, 1901; it had its Viennese premiere on January 29, 1902. "Strauss’s second operatic essay was a ribald exercise in snook-cocking. His first opera Guntram had suffered a painful fiasco in Munich, his home town, and Feuersnot was his jovial revenge... That Feuersnot should be appreciated only by scholars was the last thing Strauss intended: for the sake of the dewily attractive, well-shaped score, there is a strong case for reinventing its text in terms as rudely up to date as need be."

        Peryshko Finista Yasna-Sokola [The Feather of Finist the Falcon]

      St. Petersburg: The Department for the Production of State Documents [Expeditsii Zagotovleny Gosudarstvennukh], 1902. First Edition. Wraps. Very Good Plus. Hauntingly beautiful chromolithographic images by Ivan Biliban. 4to, measuring 32 by 26 cm, and 12 pp., featuring seven chromolithographs in addition to front cover and the rear cover vignette. Two of the chromos within are full page. In addition, there is the chromo decorative borders, very much a part of the integral whole. This work is part of a series of indigenous fairy tales the Russian government commissioned Bilibin to illustrate. To do so Bilibin paid meticulous care to actual traditional costume, architecture and decor. The work cemented Bilibin's renown, which was also built on stage design. The front cover is lightly soiled. Minor flake loss along the joint. Still a lovely copy.

To Miss Mary Rawlings. Toning with white discoloration. Mounting remnants. Fine condition.In part, ?I am very sorry that I am unable to present my book to the South Place library. The number of applications of this kind is very considerable ... To write a book of this sort in the place of ?popular? fiction means a direct loss to me of several hundred pounds & a grave invasion of the prospects of those who are dependent upon me. I think it is for some one else to buy & distribute the book. I must also point out that any copy purchased through a bookseller stimulates the publication & sale of other books of the same class, as against fiction...??The First Men in the Moon,? published in late September 1901, was H.G.

        Album of Original Watercolor and Ink Designs for Calendars from 1903 to 1907 Satan&#39;s Calendar. Life&#39;s Journey Calendar. Expectation&#39;s Calendar. Young Herchard Calendar.

      1902-1906. Decorated Cloth. Very Good. Uncommonly clever, colorful manuscript calendar illustrations built around a theme for each of the years. Small folio. 31.5 by 26.5 cm. A total of 29 original watercolors, all dated and signed E.L.P.R. The identity of the artist is otherwise unknown and possibly irretrievable. What is manifest, however, is his skill, humor and panache, and these illustrations stand out among the fluent amateurs of the day, if amateur the artist in fact was. Some of the imagery is decidedly pre-Raphaelite in its style and modeling, while others are more suavely Fin-de-Siecle. Similarities can be found to Walter Crane, Kate Greenaway, Burne-Jones, Cecil Aldin, and a host of others, but never is this artist merely imitating. The 1904/1905 series, departing from the calendar format, feature full paintings meant to illustrate one word or short phrase captions such as "Declaration", "Osculation", "Vexation", and these qualify as polished, arresting works of art. The other years have mounted card sheets each covering two months. Typically there is a large watercolor in the center and for 1903, two small ink vignettes for each month. The other years simply present each month in the usual tabular format. These years also have lines of what is presumed to be an original narrative poem which carries through the particular year. The poem is commensurate with the illustration, and it reinforces the cumulative effect of the work. A number of the mounted cards have small neat holes on the top, clearly suggesting that the leaves were once hung on a wall and/or were bound together by a ribbon. Original decorative cloth album.

A., the most popular British artist of his day, is one volume in a series entitled The Makers of British Art, edited by James A. Manson. Already an accomplished artist of animals and nature," in 1824, Landseer visited Sir Walter Scott at Abbotsford. The visit to Scotland had a great effect upon Landseer. That country with its deer and its mountains was thenceforth the land of his imagination. He began to study and paint animals more in their relation to man.&#133;he contrasted opposite classes of society as reflected in their dogs--the aristocratic deerhound and the butcher&#39;s mongrel.&#133;Having no check in his success, artistic or social, he made his way into the highest society, and became an intimate and privileged friend of many a noble family&#133;in 1839 he painted his first portrait of the queen, which was given by her majesty to Prince Albert before their marriage. At the palace he was hereafter treated with exceptional favour. From 1839 to 1866 he frequently painted or drew the queen, the prince consort, and their children.&#133;He painted also her majesty&#39;s gamekeepers and her pets." In one of his most famous portraits, &#39;The Connoisseurs&#39; (1865), he renders himself sketching, with a dog on each side of him critically watching his progress. The group portrait is reproduced in this volume as the frontispiece, the original having been presented to the Prince of Wales (afterwards, King Edward VII). He produced many fine sporting and hunting scenes, the subjects of numerous engravings, further popularizing his work. (DNB, p. 506-508).

"Walter Stanborough Sutton (April 5, 1877 - November 10, 1916) was an American geneticist and physician whose most significant contribution to present-day biology was his theory that the Mendelian laws of inheritance could be applied to chromosomes at the cellular level of living organisms. This is now known as the Boveri-Sutton chromosome theory." ..."The Boveri-Sutton chromosome theory (also known as the chromosome theory of inheritance or the Sutton-Boveri theory) is a fundamental unifying theory of genetics which identifies chromosomes as the carriers of genetic material. It correctly explains the mechanism underlying the laws of Mendelian inheritance by identifying chromosomes with the paired factors (particles) required by Mendel&#39;s laws. It also states that chromosomes are linear structures with genes located at specific sites called loci along them." Wikipedia Rare books make Fine Gifts. Shipped in new box. Free tracking USA.
