        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, 25. IV. 1903.. 6 SS. auf 2 gefalt. Doppelbll. 8vo.. An Ludwig Bösendorfer: "Sie waren vor 3 und 4 Jahren so überaus gütig mir einen guten Flügel nach Raab (Györ, Ungarn) zu schicken. Ich besuche nun nach 3 Jahren wieder einmal meine Eltern in Raab, und werde voraussichtlich daselbst ungefähr 14 Tage verweilen. Nun möchte ich natürlich in dieser Zeit nicht 'ausser Übung' gerathen, denn ich habe im September meine Londoner Conzerte, dann noch 3 Conzerte in Berlin, und 2 oder 3 in Wien. Über meine Wiener Conzerte möchte ich noch mit Ihnen, verehrtester Herr Bösendorfer mündlich sprechen. Ich habe neulich gehört (von Busoni) dass Sie sich noch meiner erinnern, und sogar einiges Interesse für mich haben. Das hat mich so gefreut! Ich habe seit 2 Jahren nicht öffentlich gespielt. Nur studiert und componiert. Allerdings spiele ich jetzt viel besser Clavier. Diese zweijährige 'Zurückgezogenheit' hat mir in jeder Beziehung sehr wohl gethan [...]". - Der aus Wien gebürtige Szanto (eigtl. Smulevic) studierte 1898-1901 bei Ferruccio Busoni in Berlin. Ab 1905 lebte er in Paris, ab 1914 in der Schweiz, bevor er 1921 nach Budapest übersiedelte. Er war ein früher Verfechter von Zoltan Kodaly and Bela Bartok und verarbeitete in seinen eigenen Kompositionen verschiedentlich japanische Einflüsse. Besondere Bedeutung entfaltete der virtuose Techniker Szanto als Klavierpädagoge; zu seinen Schülern zählt Berta Alves de Sousa.

        Ralph Waldo Emerson Journals

      Cambridge: Riverside Press, 1903. Octavo, 8 volumes. Number 56 of 600. Three quarters morocco, gilt tooling to the spine, front and rear panels. Top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. When Emerson died in 1882 he was the most famous public intellectual in America. Yet his most remarkable literary creation—his journals—remained unpublished. Begun when he was a precocious Harvard junior of 16 and continued without significant lapse for almost 60 years, Emerson's journals were his life's work. They were the starting point for virtually everything in his celebrated essays, lectures, and poems; a "Savings Bank," in which his occasional insights began to cohere and yield interest; a commonplace book, in which he gathered the choicest anecdotes, ideas, and phrases from his voracious and wide-ranging reading; and a fascinating diary in the ordinary sense of the term.

        The Red Triangle

      London: Eveleigh Nash,, 1903. Being some further Chronicles of Martin Hewitt: Investigator. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, titles and vignette of the protagonist at work blocked to front board in red, white and black. Spine sunned and gently rolled, extremities very lightly bumped and toned, a few pale marks to boards, minor foxing to endpapers. A very good copy, notably bright for a book of this time. First edition, first impression. Morrison (1863-1945) drew on his experiences growing up in London's East End to write books, such as Tales of the Mean Streets (1896) and most famously, A Child of the Jago (1896), that tended to shock his inevitably middle class readership (ODNB). The present volume is the last in the series featuring Martin Hewitt, a sleuth whose stories bear reasonable comparison with those of the great detective himself. The front pastedown bears the bookplate of Florence and Edward Kaye, bibliophiles who amassed a noted library of crime fiction.
