Poststempel, Umschläge teils etwas angestaubt, aufbewahrt in einem Original-Beauty-Case der Zeit, aussen schwarzes Leder, innen Stoffbezug, an den Ecken bestossen, innen etwas fleckig, guter Zustand.. Interessantes Zeugnis deutscher Briefkultur und Alltagsgeschichte im Deutschen Reich um die Jahrhundertwende. Gretchen (oder Margarete, wenn sie wütend ist) lebt in dem kleinen brandenburgischen Städtchen Mühlberg a/Elbe und führt über 10 Jahre lang eine rege Korrespondenz mit ihrem Ehemann Paul, welcher zuerst als Soldat (Einj.-Freiwilliger im Grenadier Rgt. 101, danach Gefreiter der Reserve 5 Komp. Brandenb. Infanterie Reg.) und später als Postassistent viel herumreiste. Die Briefe gingen u.a. nach Mühlberg a/Elbe, Alsleben, Wettin, Merseburg, Querfurt, Hettstedt, Ratzeburg, Dresden, Pössneck, Hamburg, Jena und Cüstrin. 1903 wohl frisch verheiratet, schreibt sie ihrem "geliebten Schatz", den sie immer sehr vermisst, alle paar Tage einen kurzen Brief in schöner Handschrift und gutem Deutsch. Darin geht es in erster Linie um alltägliche Ereignisse in der Familie und Tratsch. Gretchen ermahnt ihn wegen seiner schlechten Gesundheit, gibt Kochrezepte (mit Maggisuppe), erzählt vom Badengehen in der Elbe, von der Bekannten, die "schon wieder mit dem Kerl davongelaufen" sei oder z.B. von den letzten Errungenschaften der Technik: "Den Vakuum hab ich nun auch in Betrieb gesehen, funktioniert gut. Er wird an die elektr. Lampe angeschraubt, an Stelle der entfernten Birne. Radau dabei a la Zeppelin." (1913). Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl.

        Series of Autograph Letters and to Gerald Christy and One Page Autobiography

      [England]. [England], [early 1900s]. Very Good. An unexpectedly interesting and charming collection of eight letters from Frank Thomas Bullen to Gerald Christy, the manager of The Lecture Agency, which represented a number of major figures of the time. All handwritten but one covering a period from about 1903-1909. Also included is one page of a handwritten autobiography of Bullen. Frank Thomas Bullen (1857-1915 wa a well-known British author and novelist of sea stories and historic naval fiction. The letters mainly discuss various aspects of Bullen's lectures and engagements,such as payments, schedules, and how much the lecture circuit has helped his finances. The final two letters are particularly interesting. In a typed letter dated 28-12-05, Bullen writes: My dear Christy, When with all the ignorance of the novice I first coolly asked you to put me, an absolutely unknown man, on your distinguished list of lectures, I was, although much disappointed by your refusal, charmed with the kindliness with which promised to do what you could for me. My acquaintance with you during the subsequent years has confirmed my first impressions, and I hardly know which I admire most; your business abilities, or the way in which you compel all of your clients to become your friends. Yours (I hope) in Saecula Saeculorum. Written by hand below his signature Bullen writes "Will this do? It's the best I could think of and I hope it will fit the niche you expect" - perhaps in reference to the autobiography? The last two page letter is dated Dec. 9 /09 and concerns Hillaire Belloc at a lecture engagement. Bullen writes "what imibroglio this Harrogate affair has been. Of course I knew nothing of the trouble with Belloc until I got here, but I wasn't long in learning and I must say I was rather disgusted with his attitude." He goes on to describe Belloc's behavior at the event and how the parties involved simply accepted it. The twenty-nine line autobiography ends mid-sentence but seems to be almost complete. He writes of his seafaring life, his wife and dear little girl, of having been a clerk at a London office for sixteen years, and finally of starting to write with a measure of success. He mentions his most famous book, The Cruise of the Cathcelot. All are in very good condition, with creases where folded. The autobiography has sume smudges but also very good. AUTO/052014.

        [Two Conjugate Leaves on Vellum from:] THE ENGLISH BIBLE CONTAINING THE OLD TESTAMENT & THE NEW

      [London: The Doves Press, 1903 - 05].. [London: The Doves Press, 1903 - 05].. Folio (327 x 470 mm). Two conjugate leaves (4 pp.), folded. Some light dusting in margins, some creasing toward toe of fold, but very good. In a somewhat worn and bumped double die-cut mat. A conjugate specimen leaf from the vellum issue of the Doves Press Bible, printing four pages from II Chronicles (pages 161/2 and 175/6). Long regarded as the Press' masterwork, and numbered among the great achievements of 20th century fine printing, the edition appeared in five volumes over two years and included 500 sets on paper, and only two sets on real vellum (plus one comprised of rejected sheets, according to Tomkinson). Given the improbability of a set reappearing for sale (and the monumental cost if/when that might occur), specimen leaves such as this are the only practical possibility for the average citizen to approach this peak of the art of printing on vellum.

        IL REGNO, rivista settimanale (poi bimensile) politica, artistica e letteraria (1903 - 1906) fondata e diretta dal "NAZIONALISTA" ENRICO CORRADINI - PARTE SIGNIFICATIVA DI TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO, Firenze, Tip. biblioteca di cultura liberale, 1903

      Questa rivista può considerarsi UNO DEI NUCLEI DI BASE del futuro fascismo italiano, che appunto si sviluppò via via (Nazionalismo, interventismo, scontento, fascismo) Il fondatore è ENRICO CORRADINI (Montelupo FI 1865 - Roma 1931) che ne è anche direttore fino al numero 8 del 19 febbraio 1905, poi i numeri 9 e 10 vengono firmati da Torquato Paoletti come gerente responsabile e dal num. 11 del 31 marzo 1905 il direttore diventa Aldemiro Campodonico fino alla chiusura - cessazione con il num. 16 del 25 dicembre 1906. La storia di questa importante rivista è strettamente legata a ENRICO CORRADINI, che ebbe una radice dannunziana come letterato e come orientamento sociopolitico. Il suo nazionalismo divenne sempre più marcato ed appunto sul primo numero del REGNO espose le sue tesi che poi svilupperà in molti suoi scritti (La Vita Nazionale 1907 - L'ombra della vita 1908), Nel 1910 fonderà l'"associazione nazionalista italiana" alla quale affiancò il giornale "L'idea nazionale" Dopo la nascita del fascismo, portò il suo partito nazionalista nelle sue file (1922) Dopo la sua nomina a senatore (1923) Ministro (1928), perse molto del suo smalto iniziale. Il Regno manifestò una durissima opposizione al socialismo ed ai liberali, ed avversione alla democrazia ed al parlamento.

        Three Bears Asleep

      London: Frederick Warne, 1903. London: Frederick Warne, 1903 Pen and ink drawing, 5.35 x 6.35 inches. Pre-publication material for page 50 of The Golden Goose Book. Being the Stories of The Golden Goose, The Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, Tom Thumb (London: Frederick Warne, 1905). Signed with the author's monogram in black ink to the bottom left corner. Image depicts the Three Bears (of Goldilocks and the Three Bears) sleeping in two-poster beds: with Papa Bear in the largest bed with a bear head to the top of his bed frame and an Ursa Major constellation to the foot of his bed; Mama Bear in the middle, wearing a sleeping cap and with a patchwork quilt; Baby Bear in the foreground with bear patterns to his sheets and bed frame. In an original off-white mat with notations: "GG p.50" in pencil denoting the book and page for which this illustration was intended, "reduce to 115 mm" in pencil above the page notation indicating the author's edits for the final drawing, and "73.5%" in blue ink to the lower right corner denoting a similar sizing edit. Doubly matted in white, in a light brown wooden frame. Fine, with a few hints of light smudging and the slightest hint of faint toning to the edges of the sheet near the mat, else fine. A lovely illustration, matted with the artist's edits for publication. This pen and ink drawing of the Three Bears provides insight into L. Leslie Brooke's creative pre-publication process for The Golden Goose Book. While the artist's pencil and pen marginal notations indicate that there were still changes to be made prior to publication, this drawing was likely done closer to the end of the production process; the choice of pen implies an already pre-planned illustration, unlike preliminary sketches, which are usually executed in pencil as the artist is still deciding upon the illustration's layout. This drawing depicts the Three Bears as they appear in the final, published illustration on page 50 of The Golden Goose Book, and the artist's notations are purely logistical, indicating that the material itself had been finalized and that the book was in the process of being laid out. Leonard Leslie Brooke was a prolific British artist and illustrator born to Irish parents. After receiving his training at The Royal Academy of Art, from which he received the Armitage Medal in 1888, Brooke succeeded Walter Crane as illustrator of Mrs. Molesworth's Victorian children's novels for Macmillan. A turning point in his career, he went on to write and illustrate many of his own books, including The Golden Goose Book, the Johnny Crow series, and The Nursery Rhyme Book, among others. Interestingly, when Brooke's publisher Frederick Warne received the proposal of The Tale of Peter Rabbit from Beatrix Potter, Warne sent the illustrations to Brooke, who immediately lauded the artwork and encouraged Warne to publish to book.. Signed by Author. Pen and Ink Drawing. Fine.

        The Book of Bread

      London: Maclaren & Sons, 1903. London: Maclaren & Sons, 1903. Quarto, original green cloth, 336 pages, plus ads. Second trade printing, differentiated the first printing by 24 fewer pages, mostly ads and a list of subscribers to the deluxe edition, as well as undecorated endpapers (which in the first printing are decorated) and a different decorative rule on the cloth board. A comprehensive book on bread-making, with 10 original photographs mounted on card, 12 full-page color illustrations, and five black-and-white illustrations. "The Book of Bread is one of those rare books that can be judged by its cover, or rather, by its name... A monograph about the manufacture of bread, it is the bread-maker's bread book, illustrated with photographs, about which Simmons-evidently a man who did not hold with false modesty-writes: 'However critical readers might be, they will be forced to admit that never before have they seen such a complete collection of prize loaves illustrated in such an excellent manner.' The photographic reproductions-as opposed to the two original silver-gelatin prints pasted into the book-Simmons continues, were produced, with no expense spared, after various trials using different processes, especially for the colour illustrations: 'The loaves are now reproduced photographically correct, of exactly full size, and the colours are as nearly perfect as it is possible for them to be by any process at present known.' Simmons might be a little over confident about the reproduction, but as far as the aesthetic quality of the photographs go, his boasts are not misplaced. The late Sam Wagstaff, who amassed one of the finest photographic collections of the 20th century, once said that there was a photographer for everything-someone who was the best at photographing shoes, or clouds, or mountains. Simmons evidently found the best photographer of bread, though sadly, he failed to credit him. The 19th-century photobook was primarily an archive in which the things of the world were stored and catalogued. Here, at the beginning of the 20th century, one of the humblest, yet most essential of objects is catalogued as precisely, rigorously and objectively as any work by a 1980s Conceptual artists" (Parr & Badger I:56) The plate list for this edition refers to a bromide photograph; however, that photograph was only included in the edition de luxe, which was published the same year. Edges of a few photographs creased slightly, only a few spots of foxing to text, light wear to original cloth. one hinge reinforced. [Bitting, 435. Roth 101, Parr & Badger].
