Mann, Thomas, Schriftsteller und Nobelpreisträger (1875-1955).
An den Lehrer und Schriftsteller Walter Widmer (1903-1965) in Basel: "Ihre Zeilen vom 25. Dezember sind in meinen Haenden. Es liegt mir daran, Sie zu versichern, dass die Entschuldigung, die ich Ihnen durch Alexander [Moritz] Frey zukommen liess, nicht das Geringste zu tun hat mit irgend einem Wort, das Sie irgendwann und -wo ueber mich oder auch gegen mich gesagt haben. Ich fuehle mich vollkommen frei von jedem Vorurteil gegen Sie und habe nur zu viel eigene Sorgen, als dass ich mich in schweizerische Erziehungsfragen und -Streitigkeiten einmischen moechte, bei denen die gegnerischen Standpunkte mir wesentlich unbekannt sind. Allgemein bin ich fuer das Freie, Gute und Progressive und nehme gern an, dass Sie fuer dieses kaempfen. Was ich von Ihren Kindergeschichten gelesen habe, hat mir aber, wie ich Herrn Frey ganz offen schrieb, nicht so entschieden zugesagt, dass ich mich zu einer oeffentliehen Aeusserung darueber berechtigt fuehlte. Mit hochachtungsvoller Begruessung [...]" - Mann hatte sein Urteil über Widmers Kinderbuch "Der Vinzi und die glorreichen Tage der schwarzen Hand (Bern 1944) in deutlicher Form auch bereits am 16. November 1946 an A. M. Frey gesandt. Widmer schickte als Antwort auf Manns Briefe diesem "eine Flut von Büchern" (Reg. 47/49) und Mann milderte sein Urteil daraufhin ab. - Reg. 74/22.

1903. ***Copy of my photos, formats, graphics, my written text is prohibited. Ebay may drop listings with infractions. I review content regularly. Astronaut Library 6 volume set plus matching seventh Title List Below Author: Illustrations by Description: Please note this listing is for seven volumes and not just the original 6 volume set. All certificates of authenticity and signatures are present. Buyers should beware that nearly an entire pallet of rejects from Easton Press found their way onto the secondary market and do not include certificates, in some cases no signature. When looking at other sellers make sure you know what you are getting and ask questions. This listing is for original volumes as issued from Easton Press and not the discards from the manufacturers that you may see elsewhere. Some books have more than one author and include more than one certificate and signature to represent each author. The series - In 1903 mankind (in his many millennia of existence) recorded his first flight at Kitty Hawk. In little over fifty years latter we were leaving our planetary orb. A few short years after that we set foot on another terrestrial sphere. These are the seminal volumes of that early history of maned space flight from the American perspective. Given they are leather bound and signed, there isn't much else out there like it from any publisher. As these brave men pass away, you can be certain there will be no more collections like this either. Achieved at a time of only the most rudimentary computers, this is the time of the original Test Pilot Space Cowboys. Pa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jane Austen
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE - 1903 - PEACOCK EDITION £750.00 This classic is in fair condition, conducive with it's age. The book's original cover is very dark green, with a beautiful gold peacock design to the front cover and spine. The pages are rough cut, with a gilt top edge. The spine has come away, and is only just held on at the top and bottom edges by the binding.. Pages are clean and relatively clear although yellowing somewhat, with minor foxing, however the binding isn't the tightest. As long as care is taken when using this book, it should be a wonderful experience for anyone who finds themselves reading this fantastic piece of fiction.The novel is Set in England in the early 19th century which tells the story of Mr and Mrs Bennet's five unmarried daughters after two gentlemen have moved into their neighbourhood: the rich and eligible Mr Bingley, and his status-conscious friend, the even richer and more eligible Mr Darcy. While Bingley takes an immediate liking to the eldest Bennet daughter, Jane, Darcy is disdainful of local society and repeatedly clashes with the Bennets' lively second daughter, Elizabeth.

Wien und Leipzig: Wiener Verlag, 1903. Superb original color pictorial, highly decorative publisher's geometrically illustrated wrappers printed in green, yellow and black, on both covers, by famed Jugendstil illustrator Berthold Lˆffler. Half-title, and ornaments throughout, by Lˆffler. Each page with green head and tail pieces. Heiner Schwarzís book plate on inner front panel, designed by Fritz Nettel. Cover slightly worn at spine. Pages yellowed due to acidic paper. Near fine condition. Extremely scarce, the second earliest monograph on Gustav Klimt, and one of the earliest books by Felix Salten, the Austrian writer, member of Jung-Wien, the society of Viennese fin de siËcle writers. Jung-Wien was the literary equivalent of the Wiener Secession, and members of these circles were close friends and associates. Thus evidently the first monographs on the Secessionists were written by the members of Jung-Wien, and obviously these books were designed and illustrated by the artists of the Secession. This very early monograph on Gustav Klimt is one of these publications whose cover and ornaments were designed by Berthold Lˆffler the outstanding painter and printmaker of the artist group.

Canada, J.W., ed
Denver & Omaha: El Porvenir Publishing Company, 1903. Still very good.. [4],64,[4]pp. Original printed wrappers, stapled. Text printed in green ink. Occasional small patches of staining; light tanning. First and perhaps only issue of this self-proclaimed periodical champion for the American West, published in October 1903 in Omaha and Denver. The advertising text and mission statement on the rear wrapper claims that, "The making of farms, gardens, homes, cities in the midst of arid lands,-- Life in the West in all phases -- find true expression, by word and picture, in its pages.... While offering no apology for its existence, this first number serves only to show the possibilities of such a magazine. Each number will excel its predecessor in reading matter, illustrations, style, all things that go to make up a handsome publication." Articles inside include promotionals for Colorado towns south of Grand Junction such as Paonia, Cedaredge, and Montrose, short stories and poetry by Western authors, as well as several shorter promotional pieces for towns and regions in Wyoming, with numerous reproductions of photographs throughout. We locate no copies of this or any other issue; unrecorded, and perhaps the only issue published.

Beausire and with the second half of an als from Hornby on headed paper from his house Chantmarle in Dorset. In it he talks about the prices of one of his earlier books and says "I am glad you like the Subiaco type. I think it has a wonderful nobility, and it is besides very good to read".This charming book is taken from the Boke of St. Albans printed by Wynkyn de Worde in 1496. This was the first printed book on fishing in English.Franklin writes a typically eloquent and well-informed essay on this "small and happy book" in which he draws our attention to, among other things, the way that "Poor old Keates" re-made the illustrations with such literal veracity that he reproduced a crack in the original woodcut.|Ashendene Bibliography XVI With one page of an als from Hornby with his opinions of his Subiaco type

Pissarro clearly admired Ronsard, the sixteenth century French poet and, as if to honour him, in this second Ronsard Eragny printing, Pissarro starts to be more imaginative with the book design, setting out the text more generously and adding more ornamental letters, head pieces and tailpieces. With the Kelmscott Press printed booklabel of the collector and Arts & Crafts patron Laurence Hodson who co-founded the Essex House Press with C.R. Ashbee. .

ASHENDENE PRESS. BERNERS, Dame Juliana.
Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1903. One of 150 copies on Batchelor Ashendene paper, there were 25 copies on vellum. With wood block illustrations copied from the woodcuts used in the original Treatise. Printed in Subiaco type with one red initial, otherwise printed in black. 8vo., a very good copy in original limp vellum. With the booklabel of C.F.J. Beausire and with the second half of an als from Hornby on headed paper from his house Chantmarle in Dorset. In it he talks about the prices of one of his earlier books and says "I am glad you like the Subiaco type. I think it has a wonderful nobility, and it is besides very good to read". This charming book is taken from the Boke of St. Albans printed by Wynkyn de Worde in 1496. This was the first printed book on fishing in English. Franklin writes a typically eloquent and well-informed essay on this "small and happy book" in which he draws our attention to, among other things, the way that "Poor old Keates" re-made the illustrations with such literal veracity that he reproduced a crack in the original woodcut.

Potter, Beatrix
Frederick Warne and Company, London, 1903. First commercially published edition (after the limited private printing), first printing, twenty-fourmo size, 86 pp. Beatrix Potter (1866-1922) is likely one of the most beloved of childrens' book authors, for having given the world "Peter Rabbit" and his many companions, which have delighted children - and adults - for generations. "The Tailor of Gloucester" was referred to by Beatrix Potter as "my own favourite amongst my little books" (Carpenter and Prichard, p. 514); no wonder to us, with its charming tale of a destitute tailor being saved by a group of highly industrious mice. As with "Peter Rabbit", "Tailor" was initially published in a privately printed edition of 500 copies in December of 1902. It was first commercially published in October of 1903, with the first printing having single-page-endpapers (shown in this volume), the second printing having a double-page endpaper (per Linder). In addition, the privately-printed edition had only eleven illustrations, this trade edition added sixteen for a total of twenty-seven colour illustrations (including the frontispiece). ___DESCRIPTION: Maroon paper boards stamped in grey (per Linder, it was issued in both maroon and dark green paper boards), pictorial onlay on the front board of a mouse sitting on a spool of thread reading "The Tailor and Cutter", first printing endpapers (Quinby, plate I.), colour frontis of a finely-dressed lady and gentleman from "the time of swords and periwigs and full-skirted coats with flowered lappets", one of the total of twenty-seven colour plate … [Click Below for Full Description]

In his "Self Portrait," Ricketts characterized these cuts as "the high water-mark in [his] work, as far as design goes." Similarly, Maureen Watry in her book "Charles Ricketts, a Publisher in Earnest," suggests that our artist "is at his best in those illustrations in which he presents dramatic episodes in stylised and decorative manner," and, as evidence, she uses Ricketts' illustration of "The Parable of the Rich Man" from the present edition. The Vale Press books, which Cave says were "far truer to the spirit of fifteenth-century printing than Kelmscott work," included nearly 50 titles issued during the eight-year life of the press, and both the impressive output and the press' considerable artistic success can be attributed to the fact that Charles Ricketts, who was remarkably skilled as a designer, painter, and illustrator, was in control of every facet of the operation.

First edition, very rare, with an excellent provenance, of Marie Curie's doctoral thesis, one of the most important scientific dissertations of the twentieth century. "Marie Curie's dissertation for her doctorate in science offered a detailed critical presentation of her researches from 1897 to 1903, her most creative period, during which she had made the first measurement of radioactive radiation, demonstrated the radioactive properties of thorium, discovered polonium and radium, described the atomic nature of radioactivity, prepared pure radium chloride, determined the atomic weight of radium, observed 'induced radioactivity,' characterized alpha-rays, demonstrated the negative charge of beta-rays, and developed the chemical aspects of radioactivity. The thesis contains a considerable amount of material published for the first time, along with her evaluations of pertinent writings from other researchers, many of which had stemmed from her own discoveries" (Norman). Six months after the presentation of her thesis the Nobel Prize for physics was awarded jointly to Marie and Pierre Curie and Henri Becquerel for their discovery of radioactivity. Marie, the first woman to be so honoured, was to become the first recipient of two Nobel Prizes in 1911, when her discovery of radium and polonium earned her the Prize for chemistry.

[Wyoming]: Richardson, Charles O.
[N.p., but likely Chicago], 1903. Two-color map on thin paper, approximately 18 x 31 3/4 inches. Original folds. Slight separations at a few crossfolds, few short closed marginal tears. Very good. An interesting promotional map produced by Chicago oil and real estate speculator Charles O. Richardson, highlighting the oil- producing areas of Uinta County, Wyoming at the dawn of the 20th century. Uinta County is located at the extreme southwestern corner of Wyoming, on the border with Utah. At the time this map was produced, crude oil was vitally important to both the Standard Oil Company and the Union Pacific Railroad - for the former to refine into gasoline and for the latter to lubricate locomotives. Both entities appear on the present map. The "Index" or key of the map references the first two wells of the Standard Oil Company, other oil & gas wells, the lands of the Standard Reserve Oil Company, the lines for the Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad (red dashed line), the Union Pacific Railroad Main Line (solid red line), and certain county and other roads. On the far right portion of the sheet is a large schematic cross-section showing "the stratifications of oil sand encountered" in drilling the Union Pacific Oil Well. Oil was known to exist in Wyoming long before the present map, since at least the 1830s when Captain Bonneville found an oil spring near Dallas Dome. Uinta County was known to have oil near Hilliard when Fort Bridger was established nearby in 1842 (both appear on the present map). Yet, this map is one of the earliest depictions of the industry on … [Click Below for Full Description]
