      New York: Macmillan Company. 1903. First. First edition. One corner a little bumped and the spine ends a little rubbed, else fine with the painted "snow" on the spine and front board (usually quiet worn) only very slightly rubbed, lacking the dustwrapper. One of the two great novels, along with White Fang, for which the author seems destined to be remembered. His empathy for animals, combined with his appreciation of the Darwinian lessons of life, overcome London's occasionally simplistic political agenda, resulting in a classic tale for both children and adults. A tight and very nice copy. .

        Marienlyst". Park mit ansteigendem Weg, der auf eine klassizistische Villa zuführt.

      - Aquarell und Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, links unten bezeichnet und datiert „Marienlyst. 9. Sept. 1903.". 34,7:24,7 cm. In den Ecken Nagellöchlein, vereinzelt winzige schwarze Farbspritzer. Provenienz: Sammlung Blucke, Dresden, nicht bei Lugt. Die bewegte und sichere Zeichenführung mit dem akzentuierten frischen Farbauftrag verweist auf das Talent der Künstlerin. Die Landschafts- und Architekturmalerin, Lithographin und Holzschneiderin verbrachte ihre Jugend in Petersburg. Sie war Schülerin von P. Graeb (1842-1892) in Berlin. Obwohl ihr bereits 1881 anläßlich einer Ausstellung des Vereins der Künstlerinnen in Berlin ein Preis verliehen wurde, studierte sie wohl erst danach in Dresden bei P. Baum (1859-1932). Anschließend blieb sie in Berlin ansässig. Studienreisen unternahm sie an die Nord- und Ostsee, nach Holland, Österreich, in die Schweiz, Dänemark und nach Oberitalien. Weitere Ausstellungsteilnahmen folgten in Berlin, Hannover, Hamburg und Bremen. Die Staatliche Gemäldesammlung in Kassel besitzt einige Werke der Künstlerin. Wahrscheinlich handelt es sich hier um Schloß Marienlyst, das auf der Insel Seeland in Dänemark steht. Es wurde 1588 als königliches Lustschloß erbaut und, ursprünglich ein einfacher Pavillon, 1760 im klassizistischen Stil umgebaut und erweitert. Christian VII. schenkte es anschließend Juliane von Braunschweig, der zweiten Frau und Witwe seines Vaters. Nach 1858 wurde es als Badehotel genutzt. Heute sind in Marienlyst ein Museum und eine Kunstgalerie untergebracht.

      Frederick W. Goudy and Will H. Ransom at the Village Press 1903 - [6], 16, [6]. Bound as issued in paper over boards and titled in red on the upper cover. Printed in black with red title in the Village type with ornamental 11-line opening initial. This copy has the press's first printer's mark below the colophon apparently omitted in a portion of this edition. The first book issued by Frederick and Bertha Goudy's Village Press and the first in its proprietary Village type. Ransom remarks that this choice "was both a gesture of acknowledgment to those two pioneers and a sort of credo, an indirect statement of the aims and ideals upon which the press was founded." Goudy was among the most important and prolific American type designers. The volumes issued from the Village Press show he was a capable book designer with a nod to William Morris (as almost all American private presses made in the first decade of the century) but with a somewhat more modern sensibility in type design. Light rubbing to the binding, particularly the spine; a bit of offsetting at the inner margin of the front pastedown; this first issue from the press is quite uncommon. Ransom 1, Cary 1.

        THE DYNASTS (All 3 Volumes in Original Dust Jackets, EARLIEST ISSUE with integral 1903 Title Page in Volume One)

      Macmillan 1903 - Hardy, Thomas. THE DYNASTS: A Drama of the Napoleonic Wars, In Three Parts, Nineteen Acts, & One Hundred and Thirty Scenes. London: Macmillan, 1903-1906-1908. Three volumes. First Edition in publisher's original green cloth. First issue of Volume One (1903 title page integral, only 103 copies at most printed, expert repair to front inner hinge), first British issue of Volume Two (title page a cancel as found in all British first editions; some 1905 titles were found among the American issue), First Issue of Volume Three. Very Good copies (a little worn at the edges) in Very Good examples of ALL THREE ORIGINAL DUST JACKETS (some light restoration to corners and spines). Very rare in the original dust jackets and as nice a set of the first issue as we've seen. Hardy's interest in The Napoleonic Wars was most famously expressed in his 1880 novel THE TRUMPET MAJOR but also found expression in his poetry and here in his Magnum Opus, THE DYNASTS, which took him several decades of hard work to bring to fruition. THE DYNASTS is little read today but contains the best and most complete insight into of Hardy's world-view (as hinted at in the last line of TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES when he invokes The President Of The Immortals as having finished his sport with Tess). Bookplate of distinguished previous owner on front paste-down all three volumes. Purdy pp. 119-135. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.. "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 online Hans 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.
