        [Photo Album]: Pamatnik 1902-03 [Austro-Hungarian Navy]

      [Croatia]. 1903. Oblong quarto. Measuring 17" x 12". Custom cloth-covered portfolio album containing 38 stiff sheets with 165 gelatin silver photographs, and 28 mounted postcards. The photos measuring between 3.5" x 2.25" and 4" x 3". The sheets are hand titled in pen throughout. Near fine portfolio with part of the silk tie missing and modest wear to the extremities and hinges with fine and fresh images with only light bumping to the sheets. A portfolio album with photographs attractively arranged to commemorate service in the Austro-Hungarian Navy. Based in Pola, on the Adriatic (today the modern Croatian city of Pula), the Austro-Hungarian Navy (K.u.K. Kriegsmarine) was a major force in European naval affairs at the turn of the century and playing a role in international conflicts, such as the Boxer Rebellion in China. The person who created this album apparently served on three vessels during their tour, the Ironclad Warship SMS Tegetthoff (launched 1878), the Screw Corvette SMS Saida (launched 1878), and the pre-Dreadnought Monarch-class coastal defense ship SMS Wien (launched 1896). These three ships are each given separate photographic treatments, but a large number of other ships, both warships and commercial sailing vessels, are seen throughout the porfolio. Images capture shipboard life, torpedo boats, armaments training, naval maneuvers, shore life in Pula, a trip to the Near East, and naval visits to Dubrovnik and Gruz in Croatia, the Port of Piraeus (Athens), and Thessalonica in Greece, and the Greek Islands of Samos and Corfu. There are also a number of mounted postcards of various ships and locations, including a panorama of Pola signed by 25 sailors. About a dozen photos appear to have been captioned in the negative. A wonderfully comprehensive and uncommon view of the Austro-Hungarian Navy. .

        April Twilights. Poems by Willa Sibert Cather.

      Boston: Richard G. Badger, The Gorham Press,, 1903. Octavo. Original grey-brown boards, printed paper label to front cover and another to spine. Housed in a custom cloth chemise and green quarter morocco slipcase. Lacking the front free endpaper, front board re-attached, small dampstain in margin, slipcase a little rubbed. An excellent copy. First edition of the author's first book. Presentation copy inscribed on the title page by the author, "To Zoe Akins with One Million Good Wishes, Willa S. Cather." The recipient was a successful playwright and screenwriter, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for her adaptation of Wharton's The Old Maid. It is probable that this was inscribed in the 1920s. Cather's attitude towards her early poems changed over the years, and when this book was re-issued in 1923, many of these poems were not reprinted. Badger's Gorham Press was essentially a vanity operation, where authors paid the expenses of publication. In 1908, Cather purchased the remaining copies from the publisher and destroyed them. From the collection of M. B. Goldstone. Laid in is a letter addressed to Goldstone from a collector who owned another copy of April Twilight, signed and dated by Cather and owned by Akins, as well as a copy of Sonnets to Duse by Sara Teasdale, inscribed by its author to Akins.

        Sixteen Illustrations of Subjects from Kipling's "Jungle Book."

      London: MacMillan and Co., 1903. - DETMOLD, Edward (1883-1957), DETMOLD, Maurice (1883-1908). Sixteen Illustrations of Subjects from Kipling's "Jungle Book." London: MacMillan and Co., 1903. Folio. 16 chromolithograph plates (13 x17 inches), each with printed leaf of descriptive text, housed in original green cloth gilt portfolio, 31 additional color trial proofs on various papers, many annotated by the artist and/or printer, housed in a separate green cloth portfolio with printed label to upper cover; the two volumes housed together in custom ecru clamshell box (tiny tears on edges of title page, some spotting on the text leaves, repairs to two 1.5 inch tears on proof #17 of 'Council Rock' and repairs to a half inch tear and torn corner on an unmarked proof of 'Baloo in the Forest'). Provenance: Bonham's sale 23413, Lot 91. FIRST EDITION, WITH ADDITIONAL COLOR TRIAL PROOFS, SOME ANNOTATED BY EDWARD DETMOLD. The additional plates include "Council Rock" (one final and 8 color trial proofs); "Mowgli and Bageera" (one final and 3 color trial proofs); and "Baloo in the Forest" (2 finals and 16 color trial proofs, including one heavily edited by Edward Detmold). Edward and Maurice Detmold, twin brothers, were talented illustrators by the age of 13, "From the age of five both boys showed an interest in drawing animals at London zoo and spent six months studying drawing at the Hampstead Conservatoire. Precociously talented, they first exhibited at the Royal Academy at the age of thirteen, attracting the attention of Edward Burne-Jones," (NPG 3037). Their work was dedicated to the masterful illumination of animals in particular, and became highly sought after in Edwardian society. Many of their illustrations reflect influence from Japanese art, Albrecht Dürer, and the Art Nouveau movement. THE JUNGLE BOOK "The end result of this incongruous joining together of the quasi-scientific and the ornamental is an image which is both fanciful and often rather disturbing." (Diana Johnson, RISD: Fantastic Illustration and Design in Great Britain, 1850-1930). Edward and Maurice published the plates for Kipling's The Jungle Book in 1903 when they were twenty years old, and five years before the illustrations were resized and published with the text. Dark and bold, with beautifully defined characters set in elegant yet wild environments, these plates best represent the influence of Dürer's striking woodcuts on the Detmold brothers' art. From a review published in the 1904 issue of the magazine The Studio, "Their study of natural history enabled the clever young artists to choose without difficulty a number of subjects especially well-suited to their powers of illustration, and the decorative treatment of the various animals and reptiles, as well as of the figure of Mowgli himself, displays skillful and sound draughtsmanship." This was to be their last project together, as Maurice committed suicide in 1908. Edward continued to paint and print illustrations for hugely successful books such as The Fables of Aesop (1909) and Maeterlinck's The Life of the Bee (1911). In 1957, due to a depression that set in after two world wars, Edward took his life and followed Maurice in death.

        Études et Préludes [Inscribed & Signed]

      Alphonse Lemerre [1903?], Paris - Second edition of the Sapphic author's first book, originally published in 1901 under the genderless authorship of "R. Vivien," and dedicated "A N.," Vivien's American expatriate lover Natalie Clifford Barney. By the publication of this edition approximately two years later, Vivien would have already enjoyed limited but enthusiastic critical success, which may explain why she and her publisher chose to publish under her full name, rendering the nature of her work more explicit. Works in this collection include the love poems "A la Femme Aimée" ("To the Beloved Woman"); "A l'Amie" ("To a Woman Friend"); and "Nudité," which refers to a nude lover's virgin breasts. Works inscribed by Vivien are rather scarce, as she died in 1909 at the premature age of 32. Small octavo (18.75cm.); recent black morocco-backed marbled boards, original blue pictorial wrappers bound in, custom cloth clamshell box; [12],134pp. Fine. Inscribed and signed by the author in purple ink "A / Monsieur L[illegible] / avec les compliments / de / Renée Vivien." [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      8vo., 2 volumes in half gilt ruled brown morocco, spine panelled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt. A very good set. A handsomely printed edition of Varavenargues's maxims in parallel french and english text.. Luc de Clapiers, marquis de Vauvenargues was a minor French writer and moralist. He died at age 31, in broken health, having published the year prior--anonymously--a collection of essays and aphorisms with the encouragement of Voltaire, his friend. He first received public notice under his own name in 1797, and from 1857 on, his aphorisms became popular. In the history of French literature, his significance lies chiefly in his friendship with Voltaire (20 years his senior).

        Autograph letter signed in full to Hans Volkmann

      - 2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dresden, February 3, 1903. In black ink on stationery with watermark "Extra Superfine." In German (with translation).Draeseke thanks the musicologist Hans Volkmann belatedly for sending him a copy of his new book on the composer Robert Volkmann (1815-1883):". I learned of your address [only] yesterday through my old friend, Geheimer Hofrat Stern. Perhaps it will be of interest to you that, while living in Lausanne, I have energetically championed [Robert Volkmann's Piano] trio in B-flat minor. [I wish] your book, devoted to the memory of such an excellent musician, the widest possible dissemination."Slightly creased at upper edge.Together with:Vintage postcard bust-length photograph, ca. 136 x 87 mm. With reproduction signature to lower margin. Edges slightly worn and silvered; verso lightly browned with some biographical annotations in pencil. "Early in his career Draeseke was among the most original of the composers associated with the New German school of Wagner and Liszt, but by the time of this essay [Die Konfusion in der Musik, 1906] he had become more conservative in style. He developed a distinct approach to harmony, and an idiosyncratic handling of voice leading." Alan H. Krueck in Grove online Robert Volkmann's Piano Trio in B-flat minor, op. 5 (1850), mentioned in the letter "was championed by Liszt, to whom it was dedicated, and admired by Bülow and Wagner." Thomas M. Brawley in Grove onlineHans Volkmann's monograph on his great uncle Robert is considered to be one of his most significant works. Adolf Stern (1835-1907) was a poet and literary historian.
