        Superb print signed and inscribed, (Sarah, 1844-1923, Actress 'The Divine Sarah')

      1902 - "Que Dieu vous donne le bonheur" (May God Grant you happiness or success or good fortune) showing her three quarters length in the role of Sardou's Gismonda, in a magnificent Arts and Crafts frame, 6½" x 4¼", in frame 14" x 10", no place, The New York Times of 26th November 1894 wrote "BERNHARDT AS GISMONDA; Paris Enthusiastic Over Her Acting in Sardou's Play. GREATEST OF HER ARTISTIC TRIUMPHS. It would be easy to say that Sardou had never been thus triumphant, Bernhardt never so perfect, stage mounting never more exquisitely beautiful, or costumes as magnificent, and, finally, that no play has ever been better cast than "Gismonda." This would be no exaggeration; it would be only the truth, but the subject demands minute description."

        Bella oleografia originale raffigurante una scena dell'opera "Tosca" di Giacomo Puccini. 1902 circa.

      1902 - Oleografia originale in formato cm.53x78, raffigurante la scena della morte di Scarpia per mano di Floria Tosca alla fine del secondo atto dell'opera pucciniana. Gradevole policromia, in cornice coeva lavorata a mano, in formato cm.74x99, con cimasa. Insieme di notevole impatto visivo. L?oleografia è una stampa eseguita da matrici di pietra litografica, generalmente marna calcarea, mediante l'utilizzo di inchiostri grassi che, una volta asciutti, mantengono una lucidità tipica del colore a olio. Il procedimento consiste nella sovrapposizione di più immagini di diversi colori tracciate su lastre di pietra diverse: il prodotto finito può dare quindi l?illusione di essere un vero dipinto. Nata nel 1838, la tecnica oleografica permetterà un'ampia diffusione di immagini religiose, storiche, operistiche o popolari, grazie ad una capillare distribuzione casa per casa, svolta principalmente da venditori ambulanti, soprattutto trentini. 3000 gr.

        Das Buch der Bilder. Mit einer Titelvignette von Heinrich Vogeler-Worpswede.

      Axel Juncker ohne Jahr [1902], Berlin - Ohne Seitenzählung (1 weißes sowie 48 ungezählte Blatt). Dunkelroter Lederband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Linienrahmen auf den Deckeln, goldgeprägtem Autornamen und Titel über einer goldgeprägten Jugendstilfilete auf dem Vorderdeckel sowie Kopfgoldschnitt. Bemerkenswerterweise benutzt der Buchbinder dabei für die Goldprägung auf dem Vorderdeckel ein rundes Jugendstil-Zierstück wie es Henry van de Velde 1913 in der Handbuchbinderei der Großherzoglichen Kunstgewerbeschule in Weimar für den Einband der Vorzugsausgabe von Verhaerens "Les villages illusoires" gebrauchte. Eins von 500 Exemplaren, die J. S. Preuß in Berlin auf Büttenpapier mit dem Wasserzeichen "Modern Druck" herstellte. Rilkes frühes Hauptwerk war ähnlich durchgestaltet wie die Gedichtbände Stefan Georges: Die 45 Gedichte der Erstausgabe des "Buchs der Bilder" wurden auf Wunsch des Autors vollständig in Versalien gesetzt. Der Einband ist etwas angestaubt, der hintere Deckel hat kleine Kratzspuren und der Rücken ist leicht berieben. Die Seiten sind gelegentlich gering fleckig, drei Gedichte hatten Bleistiftanstreichungen und weisen leichte Radierspuren auf. Der vordere Innendeckel mit Kleberesten eines entfernten Exlibris und kleinem Papierausriß, der hintere Innendeckel mit kleinem Fleck. Das erste weiße Blatt mit unleserlichem Namenszug und dem Vermerk "November Moskau" in Bleistift. Insgesamt handelt es sich um ein noch ordentliches Exemplar des seltenen Bandes mit leichteren Gebrauchsspuren. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Caspari, original pictorial wrappers printed in black, all edges untrimmed; original pictorial green cloth. front and spine panels stamped in black,all edges stained black, green endpapers. First edition. A utopian novel presenting a monistic world view. "In these books, Hart combined his own imaginative cultural history with attempts to present monism in the most broadly accessible and least offensive way. For example, unlike Wille and Bölsche, Hart was quick to discard the notion that human freedom is subject to the causal laws of nature. Rather, Hart suggested that causality itself is an illusion that disappears when one acquires the monist 'perspective of eternity.' With aim to replicate his Friedrichschlagen experience and to spread, in Wille's words, the 'Kameradschaft zwischen Kopfarbeitern und begabten Handarbeitern aber auch geistvollen Vertretern des Reichtums,' Hart was hard pressed to avoid political questions. In DER NEUE GOTT, he treated politics with disdain, scorning the politician as one who sees 'nur die engeren und beschränkteren politischen und sozialen Zustände vor Augen.'" - Eric Paul Jacobson, Cosmology to Ecology: The Monist World-view in Germany from 1770-1930, pp. 250. Julius Hart and his brother Heinrich were noted literary critics of their time who founded the "Neue Gemeinschaft" - "new community" - a neo-romantic circle of writers. Negley, Utopian Literature 526. Not in Bloch, Brandt, Lexikon or Nagl. Both volumes are in very good condition. KVK reports 11 copies. COPAC records 4 copies. (#147190)

        The River War.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., , 1902. An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan. Edited by Col. F. Rhodes, DSO. New and revised edition. Octavo (206 x 136 mm). Contemporary red half morocco for Hatchards, red linen cloth sides, gilt panelled spine, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece of Kitchener, 14 coloured maps and plans (6 folding), 8 sketch-maps in the text. Front joint sometime skilfully rehinged, back joint slightly split at head and tail, dampstain to corner of frontispiece, bound without the publisher's 40pp. catalogue. A handsomely bound copy. First one-volume edition, revised (second edition overall). Inscribed by Churchill on the half-title: "from Winston S. Churchill, 6 Nov. 1902". This recension of The River War was published in an edition of 1,003 copies, "week of 19 October 1902" (Cohen), making Churchill's presentation inscription notably early. Of the handful of inscribed and dated copies that have appeared at auction since the war only two are of an earlier date than ours: Churchill to his future best man "Hugh Cecil from Winston S. Churchill 30. Oct. 1902" (Christie's 2011) and the earl of Rosebery's copy, inscribed "From Winston S. Churchill. Oct. 1902" (Sotheby's 2005); Cohen notes that the latter was sent with a letter dated 23 October 1902. From the library of William Humble Ward (1867–1932), second earl of Dudley, lord lieutenant of Ireland and governor-general of Australia, with his armorial bookplate ("Earl of Dudley, 7 Carlton Gardens"). Interestingly, Dudley's library was catalogued by Hatchards in 1907; he was sworn in as governor-general of Australia at Sydney in September 1908. "When The River War was republished in 1902, Churchill shortened it by a third. Every chapter was revised, if not omitted altogether, and all criticisms of Kitchener and the British Army were cut out. Now, as a Conservative MP, he found it prudent to tone down his questioning of the imperialist adventure" (Jonathan Rose, The Literary Churchill: Author, Reader, Actor, 2015, p. 61). Churchill did add a new chapter "describing the destruction of the Khalifa and the end of the war" (Cohen). Signed copies of this edition of The River War are decidedly uncommon, particularly so when dated so soon after publication.

      564 Seiten XXL-Format: 34,5 x 50 cm, gebunden in Kassette das Buch verlagsfrisch und noch verlagsverpackt, eines von weltweit auf 2500 limitierten Exemplaren von Leni Riefenstahl eigenhändig signiert, hier die Nummer 559. Helene Bertha Amalie Leni Riefenstahl (* 22. August 1902 in Berlin - + 8. September 2003 in Pöcking) war eine deutsche Filmregisseurin, -produzentin und -schauspielerin sowie Drehbuchautorin, Schnittmeisterin, Fotografin und Tänzerin. Sie gilt als eine der umstrittensten Persönlichkeiten der Filmgeschichte einerseits für ihre Werke von vielen Filmschaffenden und -kritikern als innovative Filmemacherin und kreative Ästhetin verehrt und geachtet, andererseits wegen ihrer Beteiligung an der Propaganda für die Diktatur des Nationalsozialismus kritisiert und moralisch verurteilt. Ab den 1960ern betätigte sich Riefenstahl als Fotografin und veröffentlichte mehrere Bildbände. Zu ihren bekanntesten Werken dieser Zeit zählen Fotoreportagen über das Volk der Nuba im Sudan. Das bemerkenswerte Afrika-uvre von Leni Riefenstahl. Kevin Brownlow in der Einleitung: "Und wenn Leni Riefenstahls Arbeit sich nur darauf beschränkt hätte, nach Afrika zu reisen und mit ihren Fotografien zurückzukommen, allein dafür wäre ihr ein Platz in der Geschichte gewiss. Dieser Band, der 2002 anlässlich von Riefenstahls 100. Geburtstag erschien, ist dem bemerkenswerten Afrika-Oeuvre der Fotografin gewidmet. Leni Riefenstahl, die erste international anerkannte weibliche Regisseurin, begann mit Anfang 60 ihre regelmäßigen Reisen auf den afrikanischen Kontinent, wo sie an zahlreichen Film- und Fotografieprojekten arbeitete. Ihr Lieblingsziel war der Sudan. Dort lebte sie mit dem Stamm der Nuba, lernte ihre Sprache, freundete sich mit ihnen an und fotografierte sie. Die Nuba waren ein freundliches, friedliches Volk und boten Riefenstahl eine gewisse Zuflucht vor ihrer Vergangenheit als Protegé der Nationalsozialisten. Später sollte sie ihre Erlebnisse in Afrika als die glücklichsten Momente ihres Lebens bezeichnen. Dieses monumentale Buch versammelt ihre Bilder der Nuba, Dinka, Shilluk und Massai. Die bewegenden Fotografien fangen nicht nur die Schönheit, Ausdruckskraft und uralten Bräuche dieser Stämme ein, sondern zeigen auch den tiefen Respekt und die Liebe, die Riefenstahl den Menschen und ihrem Land entgegenbrachte. Alle Farbbilder sind farbsepariert mit Aniva-Technik gedruckt, dem derzeit hochwertigsten Druckverfahren mit hoher Farbsättigung und großem Farbraum. Die Schwarzweißbilder werden im Novaton-Verfahren gedruckt, das ebenfalls eine hervorragende Reproduktionsqualität mit großem Farbraum und hoher Dichte gewährleistet.

        The Varieties of Religious Experience.

      Longmans Green and Co., New York 1902 - 1 blank leaf + 1 leaf with book ads on verso + TP + [iii] = Dedication page + [v]-vi = Preface + [vii]- xii = Contents + [1]-534 + 1 leaf with printer information on verso, Octavo. First American Edition (McDermott 1902-1). First American Edition of The Varieties of Religious ExperienceThis is James' major work on religion, and also one of his most popular books containing the Gifford Lectures that he delivered in Edinburgh in 1901-1902. Originally designed as the psychological part of a more complete treatise on religion (which was never completed) it is an important study in both the psychology and philosophy of religion and also a critical source for the nature and further development of James's philosophy.James was primarily interested in direct religious experiences, considering theology and the organizational aspects of religion as completely secondary to his investigations. For him, religious experiences were simply human experiences: "Religious happiness is happiness. religious trance is trance." He was only interested in the "experience", not the dogma or institutional structures of religion. While he did believe that religious experiences can have "morbid origins" in brain pathology and can even be irrational, he still believed they were largely positice in their overall effects. Using James' pragmatic method, the effectiveness of religious experences proves their trueth, whatever their source.This is an important study in both the psychology and the philosophy of religion and soon after its publication, "Varieties" entered the Western canon for both of those diciplines and has remained in print for over a century.According to the definitive edition of James's works published by Harvard University Press: "The first edition of The Varieties of Religious Experience was published in England (from American sheets with a special title page) on June 9, 1902, the day of James's final lecture. James received an advance copy on June 2 in Edinburgh. The date of the American publication is not certain. Under A 31018 on April 15, 1902, the copyright was given to James by the Library of Congress, which accepted the two statutory copies on May 26. However, the earliest notice in the Publisher's Weekly was #1586 for June 21, 1902, the book prices at $3.20" (The Varieties of Religious Experience, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, 1985, pp. 555-6). It must be pointed out, however, that the English edition does not say "First Edition June 1902" on the verso of the TP as does this first American issue. With "Nietsche" misspelled at line 11 on page 38 - indicated the very first issue of the book. This copy also includes the often missing inserted slip between pages 126 and 127 noting: "Remarks on pages 123-126. - These two cases printed here are selected from a larger number, kindly furnished me by friends. W.J." Original dark green covers with a sun lightened spine. The fragile paper label is a bit worn on the edges but 100% readable. there is a contemporary former owner's signature to the front fly leaf ("Martha G. Stokes 1902"). Overall, a very pretty copy of this important and influential work by William James. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]
