Ca. 1903.. 13 ONLY (of 24) color lithograph plates, sheets 18 x 13 inches, cloth covered thin boards (hardbound). Covers moderately soiled; the plates are in excellent condition with light spots to a few outer margins. AS IS. This is a gathering of 13 of the plates from the collection Form & Farbe im Flachenschmuck, originally published in a portfolio but here bound into a serviceable cloth binding; paint marks on the cover suggest that it was actually used in an artist's studio. A paper label for the bookstore Ludvig Schuth of Kobenhavn has been glued over the what was likely the original publisher's name. Each plate features a number of stunning Art Nouveau wall covering designs by artists Rudolph Rochga and Paul Haustein. While the visual motif is overwhelmingly Art Nouveau, a number of the panels hint at the Deco stylistics to emerge in upcoming decades. .

Verlagsanzeigen. extrem selten! Angeblich soll die Familie gleich die Auflage aufgekauft haben, um sie aus dem Verkehr zu ziehen. Schreber (1842-1911) war Senatspräsident beim Königlichen Oberlandesgericht Dresden und Sohn von Daniel Gottlob Moritz Schreber, dem Autor der weitverbreiteten "Ärztlichen Zimmergymnastik" und (Mit-) "Erfinder" der Schrebergärten. Dieses Buch gehört zu den wenigen Autobiographien eines wahnkranken Menschen (Schreber war bis zu seinem Tode in der Anstalt Dösen bei Leipzig untergebracht). Es veranlaßte Sigmund Freud zu seiner eigenen Veröffentlichung zum Problem der Paranoia (Psychoanalytische Bemerkungen über einen autobiographisch beschriebenen Fall von Paranoia; 1911). Elias Canetti hat ihm zwei Kapitel in "Masse und Macht" gewidmet. In jüngster Zeit ist viel zu der Frage publiziert worden, ob der Sohn wegen der Erziehungsmethoden des Vaters wahnkrank geworden sei (Schatzman, Die Angst vor dem Vater 1974; Israels, Schreber, Vater und Sohn 1989; Niederland, The Schreber Case 1974).

        Odes From the Divan of Hafiz, Freely Rendered from Literal Translations

      New York: Privately Printed, 1903. New York: Privately Printed,, 1903. Quarto. Original vellum-backed Hollande boards, spine with raised bands and gilt titles. Covers marked, rubbed and somewhat scratched at the spine, slight spotting to some early and late leaves. Still a very good copy. First edition thus of the poems of Hafiz, the 14th century Persian mystic; one of 300 numbered small paper copies signed by Richard le Gallienne, from an edition of 335 copies privately printed for the author at the Heintzemann Press, Boston, in June 1903. Le Gallienne has added a personal inscription to the signature on the limitation leaf so that it reads, "from Richard Le Gallienne, to D." Odes from the Divan of Hafiz is the first book produced by Le Gallienne (once a prominent figure of London&#39;s decadent 1890s, a member with W. B. Yeats of the Rhymer&#39;s Club, a reader for Elkin Mathews, a collaborator with Aubrey Beardsley on the Yellow Book, and author of the once-popular "Quest for the Golden Girl") from the United States, after his emigration there due to the break-up of his marriage to Julie Norregard earlier that year. The binding is intriguing for being in a markedly Kelmscott style though produced in America, thanks to Le Gallienne&#39;s private printing directives in trying to take something of the English aesthetic with him. The text includes a lengthy introductory disquisition by Le Gallienne on the superiority of his poetical translation to the more "literal" translations of Colonel Wilberforce Clarke (Calcutta 1891) and John Payne (London 1901) (from whom he took his text), professing that he has, "by a literal unfaithfulness, achieve[d] the essential faithfulness" to the music and the epicurean spirit of Hafiz&#39;s original.

First edition, Artistic Series No. 2530. Quarto (10 1/2 x 8 in; 266 x 202 mm). Sixteen leaves (including inside covers) comprised of eight leaves with four full color, gum arabic-heightened illustrations each and eight uncolored perforated leaves with matching illustrations to rectos as post cards with printed mailing info to versos. Designed at the Tuck Studios in London and printed at the Fine Art Works in Germany.Pictorial glossy wrappers in full color. Complete with all post cards present and uncolored; thus scarce. Unusually clean, and with just a tiny chip to lower right corner of front wrapper and a crossed out ink inscription dated 1904 on inside front wrapper. An excellent copy.Classic Wain cats (and dogs!) at play and suitable for coloring and mailing.At the end of the last century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. &#147;He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves&#148; (H.G. Wells).&#147;From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled&#133;[a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!&#148; (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).Publisher Raphael Tuck (1821-1900), from Germany, came to London in 1870 and shortly established himself as a fine art publisher. "...he saw the opportunity to move into the children&#39;s book market with volumes of high pictorial quality and outstanding production...Tuck&#39;s books were colourful and imaginative, catered for young and old alike, and covered topics ranging from ancient myths to contemporary events...On his retirement in 1882 he handed the business over to his three sons" (Haining, Moveable Books, pp. 36-37), who continued the firm&#39;s tradition of children&#39;s books of the highest quality.Dale 61.

        MAN & SUPERMAN A Comedy and a Philosophy

      Constable & Co. , 1903. Constable & Co. , 1903. First edition. Original sage green cloth titled in gilt on the spine. Author&#39;s contemporary presentation copy, inscribed on the half title, "To Sydney & Beatrice Webb from G. Bernard Shaw / Strachur Aug 1903." Ownership inscription of Beatrice Webb to the front endpaper. Spine ends worn, cloth somewhat soiled with some ink marks. Hinges tender, but internally sound. A good copy. An exceptional presentation copy of one of Shaw&#39;s most famous works. Shaw first met Sidney Webb at a meeting of the Zetetical Society in 1879, and it was with the Webbs that Shaw essentially founded the Fabian society, the socialist political organization dedicated to transforming Britain into a socialist state, not by revolution but by systematic progressive legislation, bolstered by persuasion and mass education. The Fabian society would later be instrumental in founding the London School of Economics and the Labour Party. It remains Shaw&#39;s lasting political legacy. On attending an exploratory meeting of potential &#39;Fabians&#39;, "Shaw had found his official milieu. He went away and returned with a Zetetical discovery of his: one Sidney Webb (later Lord Passfield), then resident clerk at the Colonial office ... Wherever Shaw has succeeded you will find that he has attached himself to some more enterprising spirit who has taken all the money risks ... In his F+-abian phase he picked Sidney Webb; and the firm of Sidney and Beatrice Webb proved a very sound political investment." (Frank Harris - Bernard Shaw). Man and Superman, which is superficially a light comedy of manners, was intended to be something much deeper, as suggested by the title (from Friedrich Nietzsche&#39;s philosophical ideas about the "Übermensch"). Due to its length, early critics called the play tedious and dramatically unsound, but today it is considered a landmark in the genre of the &#39;&#39;idea play.&#39;&#39; Lawrence A51

        The Brickbuilder [bound volume, 1903-1904]

      Rogers & Manson 1903-1904, Boston - (no dust jacket) [solid binding but much external wear, including fraying at several corners, spotting on front cover, etc.; internally quite clean, and firmly bound with the exception of one loose page]. (B&W photographs, plates, diagrams, plans, etc.) Bound volume of 24 monthly issues of this large-format architectural trade periodical (approx. 13" x 10-1/2", containing about 550 pages altogether), "devoted to the interests of architecture in materials of clay." The publication contains a wealth of information regarding architectural and construction practices of the period, primarily in the U.S., although there are a number of features focusing on British architecture, and occasional coverage of notable structures in Spain, Germany and elsewhere. Designs are presented and discussed for nearly every type of private and public building: single-family homes, hotels, department stores, train stations, apartment houses, office buildlings, clubhouses, hospitals, churches (including Westminster Cathedral in London), etc. Many topics are treated in-depth in multi-part articles: "The Planning of Apartment Houses"; "The Business Side of an Architect's Office"; "Hospital Planning" (there's a LOT about hospitals); "Interesting Brick and Terra-Cotta Architecture in St. Louis"; "Brickwork on the Pacific Slope" (mostly dealing with San Francisco -- before the 1906 earthquake, of course); etc. (An article on "Brick Architecture in and about Chicago," in the September 1903 issue, features photos of several Frank Lloyd Wright houses.) As one might imagine, there is a great deal of attention paid to "fireproof" construction, including several articles of the "lessons learned" variety in the wake of various notable urban fires, e.g. the Iroquois Theatre fire in Chicago in December 1903. Especially notable in this regard is an extensive 52-page report on the Great Baltimore Fire of February 1904, issued as a special supplement to the March 1904 issue; it describes and discusses the fire's causes and effects in great detail, and is illustrated with numerous "aftermath" photos of various buildings. (This is considered the third most destructive urban fire in American history, surpassed only by Chicago's 1871 blaze and the San Francisco earthquake and fire in 1906.) Indexes to both volumes are bound in at the front. NOISBN [Attributes: Hard Cover]
