        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.

XXV - 836 pp. Excelente ejemplar encuadernado de época a media piel. =Juan Giné y Partagás (Pla de Cabra, 18 de noviembre de 1836 - Barcelona, 27 de febrero de 1903) fue un médico y escritor español. Además de sus actividades docentes, Giné y Partagás era director del manicomio de Nueva Belén, primero en el barrio de Gracia y más tarde en San Gervasio de Cassolas, en Barcelona, escenario principal de su actividad investigadora desde 1864. Introductor de la psiquiatría organicista, fue el preparador del primer congreso español de psiquiatría en Barcelona en 1883, donde se dieron cita especialistas nacionales e internacionales. Una serie de discípulos y colaboradores suyos formaron la primera escuela psiquiátrica de España. Su contribución a la difusión, a través del periodismo médico, de diferentes corrientes científicas fue de gran importancia. Figura entre los fundadores del Instituto Médico de Barcelona (1866), primer intento de escuela libre de medicina; participó en la redacción de El Compilador médico y dirigió La Independencia Médica (1869), además de fundar en 1881 la Revista Frenopática Barcelonesa. También resultan de interés sus tres novelas de ciencia ficción: Viaje a Cerebrópolis (1884) ,un viaje al interior del cerebro, en el que los diferentes elementos y procesos cerebrales son personificados, en una ciudad que es el cerebro mismo: Cerebrópolis. Con las distancias debidas, recuerda a Viaje alucinante, de Asimov, y a Del revés de Pixar, con la intervención del Orgullo, la Vanidad, la Envidia y los Celos. - La familia de los onkos (1888), en la obra, Ginés trata de explicar en forma de metáfora las diferentes enfermedades en los reinos vecinos de Itis y Onca. Según Augusto Uribe, «Giné establece una metáfora sociopolítica de la inflamación, llegando a asimilar el orden del organismo a la monarquía y el desorden a la república, presentando las enfermedades como si de revueltas revolucionarias se tratara.». Y - Misterios de la locura (1890), trata sobre la locura de Eulogio Higiofrén (de eu, bueno, logos, palabra, higio, sano, y fren, mente) que ha perdido la razón. Ginés de nuevo usa una metáfora para explicar la situación, en este caso un planeta similar a la Tierra, con sus diferentes regiones Ultrafrenia, Afrenia y Oligogrenia. También aparece la ciudad Cerebrópolis, que ha quedado sin gobierno, situación que compara con la de España. Size: 26 x 18 Cm. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed "E. Granados" to the French music publisher Bellon

      - 1-1/4 pp. Octavo. Dated Barcelona, November 30, 1903. In black ink. On stationery with "Academia Granados" printed at head. In French (with translation).Granados grants Bellon the exclusive rights to his works in France. In a postscript he also mentions "Pablo" - almost certainly the noted cellist Pablo Casals (1876-1973)."I have spoken with my editors and they agreed to cede to you the exclusive rights of my works for all of France. I very much wish to see Paris again, and I will do so with the greatest pleasure on that occasion. One day or another I will travel there for nothing more than my own pleasure, and I assure you I will bear that expense without regret. You told me that Pablo would return the 25th - In a letter Pablo tells me that he will be there the 7th. I will certainly tell you of his return." Slightly worn; creased at folds. Catalan pianist and composer Enrique Granados "appeared frequently in recitals, concerto performances and chamber music alongside such prominent figures as Thibaud, Saint-Saëns and Casals, a personal friend, for whom he composed several pieces. He became well known for his impromptu improvisations. Granados';s musical language is rooted in mainstream European traditions, frequently blended with elements derived from traditional Spanish (and less often Catalan) folk music. [His] foremost strength was undoubtedly his melodic gift, which can be best appreciated in his songs and piano works. Granados made a significant contribution to the development of a national Spanish school and, though he is often considered more conservative than Albéniz or Falla, the degree to which native elements inform his music should not be underestimated. " Mark Larrad in Grove Music Online.Jean-Bénédikt Bellon (1867-1914) was active as a music publisher from ca. 1902-07. Letters of Granados are rare; this is a rather significant example.

        Holy Bible]. THE ENGLISH BIBLE containing the Old Testament and the New translated out of the original tongues by Special Command of His Majesty King James the First and now reprinted with the text revised by a collation of its early and other principal editions and edited by the late Rev. F. H. Scrivener...

      Hammersmith: The Doves Press, 1903-1905. 5 volumes. Limited edition of 500 copies printed on fine white paper with characteristic Doves Press watermark. With fine calligraphic initial letters executed in hand in red ink by Edward Johnstone. Each volume with title and colophon. Large 4to, bound by the Doves Bindery in original limp vellum, the spines lettered and numbered in gilt. Housed in a two piece morocco edged blue slipcase. A beautiful and very fine set, a very few gatherings lightly spotted as is usual. The vellum bindings in very beautiful condition, the leaves crisp and bright and clean. FIRST EDITION OF THE GREATEST BOOK OF THE DOVES PRESS, HIGHLY IMPORTANT AND VERY SCARCE. Considered the major book of this Press, the opening page to Genesis is critically acclaimed as one of the finest pages printed, certainly of modern production. Roderick Cave, in his THE PRIVATE PRESSES, has said, "Johnston's masterly calligraphic initials...were a perfect example of how to marry calligraphy and typography, and [the pressman] J. H. Mason's setting was full of those almost invisible refinements that only another printer can recognize" (p. 122). Ransom described the distinctive red initials by Edward Johnston as "a pattern for all time of complexity reduced to the minimum of simplicity." THE HOLY BIBLE was an all-together perfect choice to be the masterwork of this press. To again quote Roderick Cave, "[T]he Doves Press was a religious activity; its discipline one of prayer rather than of chorus girl....Books could reduce God to a page of visible type, as sunlight on a still morning showed the river in His form; and that was the reason for making a book with immense care, and making it beautiful.” Thus the greatest of all books became the most splendid offered in the press’ wonderfully elegant format of clean, pure and understated simplicity.

      London: Archaeological Survey of Egypt / Egypt Exploration Fund, 1903, 1905, 1905, 1906, 1908, 1908. First Edition. Cloth over boards. Near Fine. Norman de Garis Davies. Folios (12 1/2" x 10 3/8"), VI volumes [of VIII]; grey paper covered boards with tan cloth spine; numerous engraved plates of scale plans, line drawings, and B&W photos: Part I--The Tomb of Meryra (56pp. & 42 plates); Part II.--The Tombs of Panehesy and Meryra II (1-48pp. & 47 plates); Part III.--The Tombs of Huya and Ahmes (1-41pp. & 39 plates); Part IV.--Tombs of Penthu, Mahu, and Others (1-36pp. & 45 plates); Part V.--Smaller Tombs and Boundary Stelae (1-37pp. & 44 plates); Part VI.--Tombs of Parennefer, Tutu, and Ay (1-44pp. & 44 plates). 16 lbs. 4 oz. Rare, magnificently and accurately illustrated, indispensible original edition with detailed and exceptionally clean plates of the earliest excavations by Norman de Garis Davies of El Amarna--the city built in the desert by the controversial monotheistic Pharaoh Akhenaten near the end of the 18th Dynasty. Because of the widespread destruction of records and artifacts relating to the Pharaoh Akhenaten, his beautiful wife Queen Nefertiti, and his son Tutankhamon--caused by centuries of erosion, robbers, and recently by religiously-inspired vandals at a museum directly across the Nile from Amarna, this series of excellently executed records has even greater importance now than when it was initially published. Norman de Garis Davies, (1865-1941) was a wealthy Englishman and former Unitarian minister who gave up being a pastor for his love of archaeology and associated artistic renderings. Davies was initially active at Tell el Amarna from 1903 to 1907. There, he worked various non-royal and royal grave groups a few miles from the Central City, as well as the royal necropolis of the royal grave (no. 26) and graves no. 27-30. These graves were located in the northern limestone mountains nearly 100-feet up on the steep slope of the desert mountain edge. In his capacity of Field Director / Survey Project of the Archaeological Survey, Davies published layouts of the graves of officials at Tell el-Amarna in the Archeological Survey in 6 "Memoirs" from 1903 to 1908, which we offer here. Between 1905 and 1907, Davies also worked for George Andrew Reisner in Geza and James Henry Breasted in Nubia. In 1906, Norman became engaged to Anna (nick-named "Nina") Macpherson Cummingson, and they married on October 8th, 1907. She is noted for the quality of her architectural drawings and recreations. In 1912, Norman de Garis Davies was awarded the Leibniz Medal of the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. The husband-&-wife archaeological-and-artistic studies of ancient Egypt continued throughout their lives. Among their subsequent famous publications, we note Nina's drawings for the MMA from the grave of Djehuty kt 45 (1908). When Egyptologist Alan H. Gardiner saw Nina's work, he became so impressed that he agreed in 1909 to buy as many pictures of her work as he could afford. Thereafter, considerable acclaim attended their Thebes Tomb Series (TTS) in five editions of the "Memoirs" of the EDF from 1915-1933. In addition, for the 1926-27 archaeological excavation season, Norman and Nina received permission from the MMA to help the Egypt Exploration Society in Tell el-Amarna. Their work followed excavations begun by Henri Frankfort in November 1926. Charles K. Wilkinson, who had belonged since 1920 to the graphic department of the Metropolitan Museum, made a series of preliminary drawings, while Norman and Nina made color copies. This work resulted in the book: The Mural Painting of el-'Amarna, which Henri Frankfort issued in 1929 and to which Norman contributed a chapter. Nina also published color copies of the frescoes in the northern palace, and together they were represented by other drawings. Because of thievery, the frescoes were removed later and the fragments brought to the museum in Cairo. Her drawings became an important source for reconstructing the entirety. Norman De Garis Davies died in his sleep of heart failure at Oxford on 4 November 1941. Continuing to work on their unfinished projects throughout the Second World War, Nina prepared Norman's work on the Temple of Hibis. She put together the material and let the drawings photographed. Finally, she sent everything to the Metropolitan Museum. Unfortunately, in their publication of 1953, her earlier work found no mention: see, Part III, The Decoration. Metropolitan Museum of Art. New York. 1953. Nina & Norman's Egyptian collection was bequeathed to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, and his books to the University College, London. His written documents went to the Griffith Institute. According to Martin Fitzenreiter: Contemporary Art, 2002: "The works by this artist-Egyptologist belong without question to the best that can be achieved by the art of copyists. The accuracy of the strokes, especially the delicacy of color rendering their work of many years of empathy with the nature and art of ancient Egyptian paintings are still unmatched by any technical recording method of the "soul" to mention. " Pharaoh Akhenaten's almost 20-year-long controversial reign appears in Egyptian history as a "cultural revolution" in theology and art. Typically, the pharoah was represented stylistically with an elongated face with feminized features: full lips, a narrow waist, wide hips, a bulbous belly and thighs, and developing breasts. A few statues also show him sexless. The pharaoh and his wife were also depicted with peculiarly long thin fingers and toes. The king was often accompanied by his family as a tender father and lover of his wife Nefertiti whom he embraced. Other scenes depicted him with his children, six princesses, with whom he played. The royal figures of Akhenaten and his wife were often slightly clothed, sometimes naked. A central reference point of Akhenaten's new religion was the light, represented by the sun. In most pictures, one finds representations of the Aten, the sun god, depicted as a stylized sun disk, whose rays flow in life-giving hands. Nefertiti and various high officials are also shown receiving the presence of the Aten. As high priest and embodiment of the Aten, Akhenaten also wrote a solar hymn, which he dedicated in the grave of Eje (Ay). His sun hymn was identified by the French Egyptologist Urbain Bouriant by closely comparing the Davies' engravings with the archaeology (published 1884; rev. 1908). In addition, five shorter hymns to Aton were identified in the graves of Meryre I, Tutu, Mahu, Ipi (Apy) and No. 23. Seymour de Ricci (1881-1942) was a bibliographer and historian--often of French subjects--who collaborated with Davies' on the text of The Rock Tombs of El-Amarna: The tomb of Meyra (1905) and its continuation with the Tombs of Parennefer, Tutu, and Ay (1908).

        Cartolina autografa inviata a Pisa al direttore d'orchestra Leopoldo Mugnone dal musicista Giacomo Puccini, datata 6 giugno 1903.

      1903 - Cartolina postale illustrata, raffigurante uno scorcio dei canali in località La Bufalina presso Torre del Lago, indirizzata al M° Mugnone. La cartolina è compilata al recto, con grafìa che scorre in diverse direzioni, secondo l'uso di Puccini. La parte principale è compilata al contrario: "Caro Popi, ti ho aspettato per il poco tempo che è rimasto. ". Lateralmente Puccini chiede notizie sulla salute del destinatario ("Come andate dei vostri malanni?"), mentre in basso preannuncia una visita Torre del Lago di Tito [Ricordi] e [Giuseppe] Giacosa. Al verso indicazione estesa dell'indirizzo del destinatario, di mano sempre di Puccini. Firma "G.Puccini". Puccini conosceva il coetaneo Leopoldo Mugnone (Napoli, 1858-1941) sin dai suoi anni milanesi. Mugnone diresse molte opere pucciniane, soprattutto al Covent Garden di Londra, e fu lui a dirigere la prima assoluta di "Tosca" al Teatro Costanzi di Roma nel 1900. L'appuntamento con Ricordi e Giacosa era con ogni probabilità dovuto ai lavori preparatori, ormai avanzati, per "Madama Butterfly". 50 gr.

        A Treatyse of Fysshyne wyth an Angle.

      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. Inscribed by C.H. StJohn Hornby, the printer and owner of the Ashendene Press to J.G. Metcalf for Christmas 1908, 5 years after the book was printed. 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 wood cut.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1903 - 1903 Original Hardback Wisden. Very Good Condition.

      1903. Hi, Here we have a very rare 1903 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. The 8th Wisden Hardback. As per all 1903s the hinges were broken, Wisden forgot the strengtheners and hence why you never see one with original hinges or just with broken ones, but I have had them proffesionally restored and you can hardly tell, otherwise a super book. The lettering (gilt) is bright and strong to the front and to the spine. The front board is in excllent condition. The spine cloth has the odd mark and at an angle the rear board has a splattering of marks but not obvious unless you look under light. The pastedowns are bright and yellow, and the pages very clean, some spotting around the photoplate tissue which is in very good condition. 1903 is a rare Wisden. Please see the large photographs. More photographs available on request.

      Smith, Elder, and Co. London. 1903. THE AUTHOR'S EDITION. 12 volumes, complete. Limited edition of 1000 sets, numbered and signed by Conan Doyle in The White Company. Illustrated with 24 full page plates, by Arthur Twidle (20), Sidney Paget (1), B. West Clinedinst (1), and W.B. Wollen (2). Finely bound in recent full red morocco. Spines with five raised bands, the compartments with gilt lettering and centre decorations. Single gilt ruled border to boards. Top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Some thumbing and creasing to a few pages but overall an excellent set which has been handsomely bound. ------ Only 510 of the 1000 sets were issued by Smith, Elder & Company in 1903. The remaining copies were passed to John Murray and were reissued with new title pages, still dated 1903, in 1917. ---- Green and Gibson's bibliography of the works of Conan Doyle states; "The author considered this edition of his works to be of great importance: he revised parts, and added notes and a number of special introductions. He remarks in the preface that it had for some time been his ambition to have such a collection. Because of the author's friendship with Reginald Smith, he agreed to sign the thousand copies of the English issue. He was not, however, prepared to do the same for the American publisher, though he was asked. He made it known that he would only consider doing so for a considerable fee. The English issue also has the further attraction of having two illustrations in each volume rather than one." (Green & Gibson, p. 233).
