( Mappen und Tafeln in frischen Farben, Kellergeruch, Tafeln in gutem Zustand) Nachweise zu Müller-Kaempff bei Thieme/Becker, Bd.25, S.245. [ [Paul Müller-Kaempff (* 16. Oktober 1861 in Oldenburg; † 5. Dezember 1941 in Berlin) war ein deutscher Maler, Zeichner und Lithograf. Seine Ausbildung erhielt er zunächst als Schüler der Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, 1883–1886 der Akademie Karlsruhe bei Gustav Schönleber (1851–1917) und 1886–1888 der Berliner Akademie im Meisteratelier bei Hans Fredrik Gude (1825–1903). Der Name Paul Müller-Kaempff steht in erster Linie für das Entstehen der Künstlerkolonie Ahrenshoop auf dem Darß. Anlässlich eines Fischland-Aufenthalts mit seinem Freund Oskar Frenzel (1855–1915) im Jahr 1889 hatten sie das abgelegene Fischerdorf entdeckt. Er baute sich dort 1892 ein eigenes Haus und begann 1894 mit der Malschule St. Lucas. Künstlerkollegen folgten seinem Beispiel, so wurde Ahrenshoop auch zur Heimat von Anna Gerresheim (1852–1921), Elisabeth von Eicken (1862–1940), Friedrich Wachenhusen (1859–1925), Fritz Grebe (1850–1924), Heinrich Schlotermann (1859–1922), Theobald Schorn (1866–1913) und Hugo Richter-Lefensdorf (1854–1904). 1909 war er maßgeblich am Bau des Ahrenshooper Kunstkatens beteiligt. Zu seiner Oldenburger Heimat hielt er in dieser Zeit stets Verbindung. 1904 wurden Müller-Kaempff und seine spätere Frau (1905) und vormalige Schülerin Else Schwager Mitbegründer des Oldenburger Kunstvereins (Oldenburg in Oldenburg), 1905 erhielt er die Oldenburgische Staatsmedaille und 1907 war er Mitbegründer der Vereinigung nordwestdeutscher Künstler. 1906 wurde er zum Professor ernannt. Er lebte ab 1908 auch in Hamburg und war Mitglied des Hamburger Künstlervereins von 1832. Müller-Kaempff war als Landschaftsmaler sehr erfolgreich und zählte Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts zu den fortschrittlichsten und bekanntesten Landschaftsmalern seiner Zeit. Neben Gemälden, Aquarellen, Pastellen und Zeichnungen sind von ihm auch Entwürfe für Möbel überliefert und eine Vielzahl von Postkarten bekannt geworden. Des Weiteren fertigte er Lithografien für Heimatmappen an und illustrierte Bücher (u. a. Naumann: „Naturgeschichte der Vögel Mitteleuropas", 1905). Bilder wurden zu seinen Lebzeiten nicht nur von Museen in Rostock, Oldenburg i.O., Kiel und Hamburg gekauft, auch viele Privatsammler erstanden seine Bilder. Prinz Eitel Friedrich, der zweite Sohn von Kaiser Wilhelm II., erwarb 1908 mehrere Werke für den kaiserlichen Hof.

        Wie es Licht geworden

      Die Nichte von Bertha von Suttner wurde als Tochter des Carl Gundaccar Freiherr von Suttner, Ministerialsekretär im K. u. K. Ackerbauministerium in Wien, und der Luise Reichsgräfin von und zu Firmian und Meggel, geboren. Sie hatte drei Brüder. - Bis zu ihrem 16. Lebensjahr wurde sie in einem Kloster erzogen, ehe sie in den Haushalt ihrer Tante Bertha zog. Der Bruder ihres Vaters, Arthur Gundaccar von Suttner, Ehemann von Bertha, hatte erheblichen Einfluss auf ihre Anschauungen. Sie lebte auf Schloss Harmannsdorf bei Eggenburg, dem Stammsitz der Suttners, schrieb Feuilletons für in- und ausländische Zeitschriften, veröffentlichte Übersetzungen und schrieb Novellen. Für Bertha war dieses Zusammenleben recht tragisch, wie man ihren Tagebüchern entnehmen konnte, da sich zwischen Marie und ihrem Onkel eine Liebesbeziehung entwickelte, die Marie in ihrem Roman "Wie es Licht geworden", enthüllte. Diese Dreiecksbeziehung endete erst mit seinem Tod im Jahre 1902. 1905 heiratete sie Emil von Haebler und zog mit ihm auf Schloss Gutenbüchl bei Schönstein in der Untersteiermark, heute Slowenien. Sie starb 1948. -- Erstauflage in der Ausgabe als Broschur. - Auf dem Schmutztitel mit einer privaten Widmung und signiert mit vollem Namen "Baroness Maria Louise von Suttner". Die Widmung war für Alfred Lorenz, ansässig in Gars am Kamp (nahe Schloss Harmannsdorf), der im selben Verlag seine Gedichte publizierte (1903). - Einband etwas berieben, Schnitt und Deckel nachgedunkelt. Alles in allem aber solides Exemplar. - Auf der letzten Seite ganz zarte Stenographie-Anmerkungen mit hellem Bleistift, wahrscheinlich von Lorenz. - (Bankverbindungen in Österreich und Deutschland)

        Works

      1902. SMOLLETT, Tobias. The Works. New York: George D. Sproul, 1902. Twelve volumes. Octavo, contemporary full crushed green morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines and boards with inlaid red and yellow morocco roses, raised bands, richly floral gilt dentelles, red morocco doublures with inlaid white and green morocco flowers, marbled extra endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $5000.Deluxe “Hand-Made Edition” of Smollett’s works, number 10 of 150 sets, illustrated with 48 plates (double-suite, one on mounted Japan tissue; one frontispiece in each volume in color), very beautifully bound by Trautz-Bauzonnet.“Like Richardson and Fielding, [Smollett] was a critic of manners; but being a ‘lousy Scot’ and a surgeon to boot he lacked entrée to high society and wrote always as an external observer and critic. A born storyteller, he paid little attention to premeditated effects; his narrative and descriptive gifts were sufficient to keep readers keenly interested and amused… For inventiveness and diversity of episode, vivid particularlity of detail to the point of caricature and energy of style, Smollett is hardly excelled. He is to the 18th-century novel what Hogarth is to painting—a savage realist with an eye for eccentric character, which he discovers in all classes” (Baugh et al., 961-62). This set presents his complete works, including the autobiographical Roderick Random (1748), the Cervantes-inspired Adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves (1760-61) and his experimental triumph The Expedition of Humphry Clinker (1771), esteemed as one of “the greatest masterpieces of English fiction” (Baugh et al., 964). Illustrated with four plates in each volume in double-suite (one on mounted Japan tissue; one frontispiece in each volume in color), 48 plates in all. The set is splendidly bound in full morocco, elaborately gilt-tooled with intricate floral designs and bearing floral morocco inlays on the boards. Spines uniformly toned to brown. A fine set, most elegantly bound.

        SEVEN POEMS & TWO TRANSLATIONS

      Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1902. ONE OF 325 COPIES on paper (and 25 on vellum). This is one of the 26 intriguing (and obviously uncommon) examples Tidcombe has identified as imitation Doves bindings, a group of handsomely executed volumes that continue to be mysterious. It differs from its fellows by offering significantly more in the way of gilt decoration. The work here is the fourth publication of the Doves Press, a volume that gathers together a number of poems by Tennyson, written at various times in his long life and all reflecting his abiding interest in Homer and Greek myth. The collection is framed by two short translations of passages from Homer's "Iliad," both featuring images of fire. Two original poems concern the tragic figure of Oenone, the first love of Paris, and two are inspired by the "Odyssey." The other three treat, in turn, the figure of the Theban seer Tiresias; Tithonus, lover of the goddess of Dawn; and the myth of the theft of Persephone by Death.. 233 x 165 mm. (9 1/4 x 6 1/2"). 55, [1] pp. ONE OF 325 COPIES on paper (and 25 on vellum). EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE DARK BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, IN THE STYLE OF THE DOVES BINDERY (stamp-signed and dated 1909 on rear turn-in), covers with gilt frame formed by interlocking double rules, side- and cornerpieces with oakleaf clusters accented by open circles and solid dots, large double gilt-rule lozenge in central panel, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with open circle at center, an oakleaf cluster extending above and below it, dots in corners, gilt vertical titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins with oakleaf clusters at corners, all edges gilt and gauffered with two rows of dots. In a blue cloth slipcase. Tomkinson, p. 45; Tidcombe DP-4. For the binding: Tidcombe, p. 463 The usual faint offsetting from the facing turn-ins on the front and rear free endpaper, half a dozen leaves with minor foxing just to the lower fore-edge corner, otherwise VERY FINE, the text clean, fresh, and smooth, and the lovely binding especially lustrous and virtually unworn. This is one of the 26 intriguing (and obviously uncommon) examples Tidcombe has identified as imitation Doves bindings, a group of handsomely executed volumes that continue to be mysterious.

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire Année complète 1902 EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Bureaux de la Revue, 1902. Fine. Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1902, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding Edition Editor at bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, small gilded iron and double gold mesh queue.Douze January to December 1902. Hedges numbers conservées.Chaque number is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Blum ("The eyes I love"), Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide ("Oscar Wilde"), Ms. Alphonse Daudet, Walt Whitman, founded in etc.Publication 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine belonging to the first wave of small symbolist journals. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular collaborators, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. L'Ermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time like the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] that deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his symbolist spirit, employees are more interested in poetry than fiction. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, believes that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddling the end of the century aesthetics and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1902. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Léon Blum ("Les yeux que j'aime"), Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide ("Oscar Wilde"), Mme Alphonse Daudet, Walt Whitman, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

      vi, 340 pp. overview of the ground-breaking exhibition featuring works by international masters and minor practitioners of the then prevalent Art Nouveau aesthetic, with texts on exhibited works, buildings at the exposition, artists and architects, approx. 400 fine illustrations throughout (several in color) showing architecture and a wide array of decorative objects by Behrens, Mackintosh, Olbrich, Carlo Bugatti, Raimondo D'Aronico (at the time the chief architect to the Sultan of Constantinople), and many others. Some very minor foxing. 4to. Embossed and gilt-decorated vellum, slightly rubbed along spine. Darmstadt and Leipzig (Anstalt Alexander Koch) 1902. Ex-libris Bruno Héroux. A beautiful edition of an important work that offers an invaluable compendium of material, profusely illustrated, shedding light on the great outpouring of creativity in the decorative arts and architecture at the turn of the 20th century, in styles known variously as Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, Stile Liberty, et al. The first part of the present publication features documentation of the architecture of the exhibition, much of which was created by D'Aronico, whose entrances, pavilions, and exhibition and administrative buildings were influenced by a visit to the Darmstadt Artist's Colony designed by Joseph Olbrich. Other illustrations show a wide variety of interior decoration, furniture, ceramics, lamps and other household objects, book arts, jewelry, screens, etc. The German edition is very scarce institutionally; the French edition is much more widely available. The original embossed title on the cover reads Moderne Dekorative Kunst: Die Ausstellung zu Turin 1902.

        Crown Prince Saud bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia].[London, 1935]. Matt silver print (ca. 28 x 36 cm), watercolour, pastel, gouache and oil paint. Mounted on paper in a passe-partout. Signed "Lafayette" in pencil on the mount. In a wooden frame (ca. 53 x 64 cm), under glass.

      - For Lafayette: Russell Harris, Narrated in calm prose. Impressively coloured photographic portrait of the Saudi crown prince Saud (1902-1969), by the eminent London photographic studio Lafayette. Prince Saud, the future King Saud of Saudi Arabia, had been appointed crown prince in 1933 and fought in the 1934 war against Yemen. After the war his father encouraged him to travel abroad, and over the next few years he visited Saudi-Arabia's neighbours, Europe and the United States. While in London, Prince Saud had his portrait taken by the Lafayette studio, originally established in Dublin in 1880. It is no coincidence that Prince Saud chose a firm that had photographed numerous emperors, kings, sultans, earls, early movie stars, etc. The firm would also provide hand coloured prints on request, and the current photograph is an example of the very high quality they provided. The photograph of Prince Saud was coloured by painting over the photograph with watercolours and pastel. A subsequent treatment made it possible to use tiny drops of oil paint to highlight the gold trimming on his robe, the jewels and pearls on his sword and the small lights in his eyes. In very good condition, with only very minor craquelure. A colour portrait of the future King Saud of Arabia: a photograph enhanced by an expert painter, from the leading British firm for the genre.

He also coined the phrase "Oh, this is elementary, my dear fellow" and reinforced Holmes' sporting of a deerstalker hat, originally drawn by Sydney Paget in the Strand magazine. Squire and Lady Bancroft, themselves noted actors were at this time running the Haymarket Theatre.
