        Lettre autographe signée « après une existence de bonnes œuvres il s'irradie maintenant dans la joie qui ne finit point »

      Precious letter of condolences from Joris-Karl Huysmans, signed and without mention of addressee, following the death of Anatole-Henri-Philippe, Marquis de Ségur. The letter was probably addressed to the Comtesse de Guerne, daughter of the marquis. 33 lines in black ink, and some pencil indications from a previous bibliographer.Beautiful funereal elegy to a close friend, surely introduced to the author by the Abbe Mugnier, who had brought Huysmans back to the faith. A member of the Council of State and mayor of a commune in Normandy, the Marquis de Ségur was also a writer, fervent Catholic and admirer of Saint Francis de Sales, who inspired him with several biographical essays. He was also one of the founding members of the work of Saint Francis de Sales in 1857; Huysmans asserts in the letter that the Marquis " was really the son of St. Francis " and presents him as " one of the most powerful cordial souls that he has ever known ".Newly immersed in the Catholic faith for some years, Huysmans seems to have been inspired by this character to " goodness that simplifies everything and piety that puts everything in focus ". The marquis places religion at the center of his life and his literary work - an undertaking to which Huysmans has long aspired since the publication of his novels En Route and La Cathédrale (1895 and 1898).Poignant testimony to the admiration of Huysmans for a man of exemplary faith. s.l. 11 mai 1902 10x15,5cm 2 pages sur un feuillet remplié

Dimension of the narrow wooden frame 42,5x28cm.] „Die Welt, wie Michael Zeno Diemer sie sah, gibt es nicht mehr. Allein die Gletscher sowie Sarajevo und Mostar in Bosnien-Herzegowina haben sich gewaltig verändert, seit sie der Maler Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts mit seinem Pinsel festhielt. Für Dr. Constanze Werner, Leiterin des Oberammergau Museums und des Geigenbaumuseums Mittenwald, „ist er ein Chronist seiner Zeit". Auf seinen unzähligen Reisen und auch in seiner Heimat habe der Künstler, der 1881 als 14-Jähriger mit seiner Familie von München nach Oberammergau gezogen war, ständig seinen Skizzenblock dabei gehabt. „Er hat die ganze Zeit aquarelliert, was er gesehen hat", sagt Werner. Einige seiner Berg- und Seebilder hängen derzeit im Werdenfels Museum in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Neben der Natur – unter anderem dokumentierte Diemer auch etliche Erstbesteigungen – war es die Technik, etwa Graf Zeppelins Luftfahrten, die ihn begeisterten. Berühmt war der sechsfache Familienvater, der mit Hermine von Hillern, der Tochter der Geierwally-Autorin, verheiratet war, zudem für seine Riesenpanoramen. „Er war am Moskau-Panorama beteiligt, das neben dem von der ,Schlacht am Bergisel‘ in Innsbruck das einzige ist, das noch erhalten ist", erzählt Werner. Sie ist wie ihr Garmisch-Partenkirchner Kollege, Josef Kümmerle, fasziniert von Diemer: „In Zeiten, in denen die Expressionisten aktiv waren, hat er eher konservativ gemalt. Die Moderne hat er stattdessen durch seine Motive umgesetzt." [Merkur-Online vom 8 April 2015] [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Ward, Lock & Co., Limited, London, 1902 - Small 8vo, pp. 336. Bleiler notes in Science Fiction: The Early Years (pp. 490-491) that the name "Huan Me" is "probably a pseudonym for a British author, perhaps to be read 'you and me'. A fairly frequent contributor of sensational fiction to the British variety magazines around the turn of the century". The pseudonym "Huan Me" is not listed in any of the standard reference works on pseudonyms, viz. Atkinson, "Dictionary of Literary Pseudonyms"; Sharp, "Pseudonyms and Personal Nicknames"; Halkett and Laing, "A Dictionary of Anonymous and Pseudonymous Literature of Great Britain". This title not in Bleiler, although referenced in Hubin (p. 283). It is a scarce title; OCLC lists only one copy in an American library (N.Y. Univ.). Five other novels have been attributed to this author. Three of five titles currently offered for sale on the internet are, in fact, photocopies of short stories by this author. Only two books presently appear for sale ("A Diplomatic Woman" and "The Jewel of Death"). Our copy of "Weaving the Web" shows rubbing to extremities and some soiling to rear board. The endpapers are clean, although the front hinge is a bit weak. Both of the inserted plates are present, although the binding is cracking at the placement of the second plate. The contents are clean, with no previous owner's markings. Overall, in good plus condition. No dust jacket.

        Album of watercolours and photographs.

      1902 - Beautiful Watercolours of Madagascar 68 original photographs, various sizes, from 58 by 70mm to 180 by 240mm, nearly all captioned in ink & 19 watercolours, various sizes, from 200 by 120mm to 170 by 250mm, signed with initials or full name. Oblong 4to. Original green cloth, rebacked. Madagascar, 1895 - A well-executed album compiled and drawn by Henri Letrillard, a French officer serving in Madagascar, transformed by the 19 watercolours in his hand, which are made with wit and vigour and vividly illuminate the domestic life of the military administration of the island. The years 1896 to 1904 saw a series of insurrections led against the French military and other foreign influences. The French, using their experience in Indo-China used the counter-insurgency ?oil-spot? principle, where secure bases were established, from which a ring of stability would spread. Letrillard appears to have served in two such settlements, Madirovalo and Namorako, both some way inland from the north-west coast. Both Madirovalo and Namorako had defended bases, with lookout towers, surrounded by wooden ramparts and drawbridges. These stockades are shown several times in his watercolours but not in the photographs, nor in any other photographs we have seen before of Madagascar. The photographs capture scenes of daily life showing both settlers and natives, views of Diego Suarez, Vohemar, Nossi Bè [sic], Antananarivo and Mahajunga (sometimes spelt here Majunga), and one photograph of Djibouti. One large photograph is of a firing squad ?le peloton d'éxecution? at Majunga: the victim is not in the frame, but the event is well attended by onlookers. The caption records the officer in charge of the firing squad was later killed by the enemy in Lampasika. The album concludes with numerous shots of French soldiers at camp including an exceptional photograph of soldiers on a hunting trip, posing very theatrically in front of their tent. The watercolours are titled: 1. Garde Principal - Garde Civile Indigine de Madagascar Tenue d'Europe. 2. Souvenir de Madagascar - L'apperitif au Cape du Cercle a Majungae. 3. Vue generale de Madirovalo - Vue pase du Mirador du Poste - Decembre 1897. 4. Souvenir de Madagascar - Grande Rue de Madirovalo Novembre 1897. 5.

        A chart of the World on Mercator's projection,

      ... shewing the principal ocean steam routes, the submarine telegraphs &c. London : Edward Stanford, [c. 1902]. Chromolithographs map (dimensions 62 x 110.5 cm, overall 70.5 x 114 cm), dissected into 40 sections, linen backed and housed in original cloth slipcase with printed title label. A fine colour printed chart of the world featuring the dominions of the British Empire in pink. Small inset hemisphere maps of the Antarctic and Arctic to the lower corners. Stanford’s yellow printed advertisements to folded end sections on linen verso. Both the map chart and the case in superb condition. No printed date, but evidently very early 1900’s. The imprint to the case label gives Stanford’s address as being 26 & 27 Cockspur Street whilst the imprint to the lower margin of the chart states 12, 13, and 14 Long Acre; the firm moved to the latter address in 1900. The case label also states that Stanfords were the Geographers to the Queen, whilst on the advertisements they are Geographers to the King, presumably Edward VII. A fine example
