        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.

        Village Press] PRINTING: AN ESSAY . FROM "ARTS & CRAFTS ESSAYS BY MEMBERS OF THE ARTS AND CRAFTS EXHIBITION SOCIETY

      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.

        L'immunité dans les maladies infectieuses [title in Russian]

      St. Petersburg, 1903. First edition in Russian. Text in Russian, translated from the original French. 1 vols. 8vo. Original wrapper spine and rear cover present, front wrapper perished. Inscribed Classic of Immunology First Russian edition of a classic of immunology, for which the author won a Nobel Prize in 1908, sharing it with Paul Ehrlich. This copy is inscribed (in Russian): "To Joseph Mankovich Krauzman in fond remembrance from Elia M. Paris 1903."According to the DSB, Metchnikoff, while in Paris in 1900, "began to write a large and comprehensive book, L'immunité dans les maladies infectieuses (1901). This book was a magnificent review of the entire field of both comparative and human immunology. The work was also, of course, a defense of the theory of phagocytosis, which the humoral theory of immunity seriously challenged. The work of the German bacteriologists, especially Emil Behring, Paul Ehrlich, and Robert Koch, which led to discovery of many new bacteria, toxins, and antitoxins, strengthened the beliefs of those who held to a noncellular theory of immunity ... In 1908 Metchnikoff and Ehrlich shared the Nobel Prize for their researches illuminating the understanding of immunity ... "

        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... GranadosÂ’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 online Jean-Bénédikt Bellon (1867-1914) was adtive as a music publisher from ca. 1902-07. Letters of Granados are rare; this is a rather significant example.

        M. Gor'kii. Rasskazy "Mal'va" T. III-II [Cyrillic Micrographic script portrait of Maxim Gorky]

      NP, Kiev 1903 - Folio. Size approx. 28 x 20 inches (50 x 70 cm). Rare micrographic portrait of Maxim Gorky composed from the letters of his short story Malva. The portrait was engraved by S. B. Khazin based on a photograph of the famous Russian author taken in Nizhny Novgorod by the Russian photographer Maxim Petrovich Dmitriev and printed by S. V. Kul'zhenko. Portrait passed by the censor in Kiev, 23 February 1903. The technique of portraiture using words and letters appears in Russia in 1900 with Khazin's portrait of Count Leo Tolstoy which used 4700 characters to form the work. His second portrait in this style was the present work, that of Gorky, which used the approximately 82,000 characters of the story to form the hair, clothing, and chair on which Gorky is sitting. Though Malva was first published in 1897, Khazin used the latest edition which appeared in 1903 as the second piece in the third volume of Gorky's story, as identified in the title. Little is known of Khazin except that he was mostly likely born near the town of Yarysheva Mogilev-Podolsk in the Ukraine, and that he had his portraits printed in Kiev. His technique consisted of using a well-known photograph, leaving the face untouched but washing away everything else except for an outline of the original. He then drew the portrait using the handwritten text, with the individual letters usually less than a millimeter in height, all of which needed to be engraved in mirror image so that it could be read once the print was struck. Not found in OCLC or any major European libraries. There is a copy at Centraljnaya Gorodskaya Biblioteka im. A.M. Gorjkogo, Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Sporadic and minor closed tears along edges (not affecting portrait). Moderate age-toning along edges (not affecting image). Print in overall very good condition.
