        El sueño de la razon produce monstruos

      Aquatint, 182 x 120 mm (image size), 310 x 235 mm (sheet size), being plate 43 from Goya's masterpiece Los Caprichos, the seventh edition printed 1903 - 1905. Goya had already established his reputation as a painter to the nobility and to the Royal Court of Spain when he produced his first major series of prints, the iconic Los Caprichos, which comprises 80 aquatints. Los Caprichos is a complex and enigmatic figurative series, which opens as a wry commentary on the follies of human desire and a perverted social order, and closes with images drawn from a dark realist fantasy of spectres and goblins that come to life to torment the living through temptation and deceit. Some of Goya's most recognisable images were created in this series, including his graphic masterpiece El sueño de la razon produce monstruos (The sleep of reason produces monsters). This image, instantly familiar and arresting, signals the transition to the haunting imagery of the second half of the series, in which Goya's imagination is fully unleashed. Los Caprichos was printed in an edition of fewer than 300 copies and first offered for sale in Madrid in 1799. Only 27 sets sold. In 1803 Goya wrote to the Royal Court and offered King Charles IV the remainder of the sets as well as the original etching plates in return for a stipend to allow his son Francisco Javier to travel. Charles agreed, and the plates made their way into the Calcografía Nacional, the National Engraving Centre established in 1789 to oversee Royal commissions and collect graphic work. Later in life, Goya expressed relief that the King had accepted the gift - he had feared the unwanted attention of the Inquisition, since some of the images relate to the Church. Goya died in 1828. In 1855 the Calcografía printed a second impression of the plates in an edition known to scholars as 'very small', perhaps only a few dozen sets (Harris, Tomas. Goya : engravings and lithographs. San Francisco : Alan Wofsy Fine Arts, 2001). It was the re-publication of Goya's series which ignited wider interest in his aquatints, and a third impression was made from the plates, again in numbers described as 'very small'. Around 1878 the Calcografía bevelled the edges of the plates, steel-faced their surface and printed off another edition, the fourth, of 65 copies. The Calcografía would go on to print no less than eleven separate editions, the last - the twelfth edition - as late as 1937. All of these later printings display wear to the plate, and in this image, the text within the image is mostly lost. A later impression of one of the greatest prints in Western art.

        De l'Érostratisme ou vanité criminelle

      Lyon, A. STORCK & Cie, 1903, in-4, 74 p, broché, Thèse de Pierre Valette (1878-19..) dirigée par Alexandre Lacassagne à l'Université de Lyon. L'Érostratisme est un terme inventé par Alexandre Lacassagne pour définir la vanité criminelle. Dans l'introduction, Pierre Valette précise "l'existence d'un orgueil et d'un besoin d'approbation poussés à l'extrême" chez les criminels. Dans cette courte thèse, l'auteur se propose d'étudier l'instinct criminel, qui peut résulter d'une vanité hypertrophiée, son origine individuelle et sociale, ses manifestations et son évolution vers le crime. Pour ce faire, il prend pour exemples certains méfaits de criminels (assassinat de Marat par Charlotte Corday, etc.) Dos abîmé.

        A Prefect's Uncle

      A & C Black, London 1903 - 8vo, pp. 264. Original red pictorial boards, lettered in gilt and pale blue to front panel, and in red-on-gilt and gilt to spine. Very slightly cocked, light fading to spine, offsetting to endpapers, and minimal bumping to head of spine and corners, but a near fine copy for all that. Frontispiece and seven full-page illustrations by R. Noel Pocock. First edition, first issue of the author's second book, dedicated to Wodehouse's old school friend and lifelong correspondent, William (Bill) Townend. 'I have finished a school story of almost exactly the same length as The Pothunters, and can forward it immediately if you wish it. The title of the book is The Bishop's Uncle [later The Prefect's Uncle] and like The Pothunters it deals chiefly with the outdoor life of the public school. There is a great deal of cricket in the book, in fact, strictly speaking, it is nearly all cricket, for very little else except that game goes on in the Summer Term at school.' (PGW to publishers A&C Black, 8 December, 1902) Wodehouse's early school stories weren't just bought and shelved, they were read. And not just read but reread by schoolboys of all ages who were starting to seek them out. It's not surprising, then, that condition is often a problem with Wodehouse's early books. This copy, near fine with the binding tight, bucks that trend.

[Seguido de]: CATALOGO ILLUSTRADO DAS AVES DE PORTUGAL . (Sedentárias, de arribação e accidentaes). Por D. Carlos de Bragança. Faciculo II: Estampas 21 a 40 (Texto em portuguez e francez). Lisboa. Imprensa Nacional. 1907 In fólio de 32x25 cm. Obra em 2 volumes em um publicados, respectivamente, em 1903 e 1907. Encadernação da época com lombada e cantos em pele; com finos ferros a ouro na lombada e nas pastas. Exemplar apresenta as capas anteriores e posteriores de cada um dos fascículos. Cortes das folhas aparados e carminados apenas à cabeça. Apresenta nas guardas um ex-libris de bibliófilo da época. Cada um dos fascículos ilustra 20 espécies de aves. Estampas pintadas por Enrique Casanova sob orientação do rei D. Carlos e, nalguns casos, por si aguareladas. Cada estampa/espécie apresenta o nome científico e o nome em cinco idiomas diferentes, seguido do seu estatuto migratório e a abundância, fazendo-se também uma referência ao local de captura das aves ilustradas em cada estampa e, por vezes, a outros locais onde o Rei terá observado ou capturado aves dessa espécie. D. Carlos cedo começou a organizar uma colecção de pássaros por si abatidos e destinados a formar um "Museu Ornitológico". Aos 24 anos o Rei começou a escrever a Ornitologia de Portugal, que foi corrigindo constantemente com grande rigor científico. Em 1893, com 30 anos de idade, decide publicá-la com o título Catálogo Ilustrado das Aves de Portugal, entregando a Albert Girard a área científica, ficando Enrique Casanova, seu professor de desenho, responsável pelas estampas. No entanto D. Carlos esteve presente em tudo, com o seu saber e a sua arte. A obra destinou-se a ser publicada pela Imprensa Nacional - Casa da Moeda em fascículos ilustrados com 20 estampas cada. O 1.º fascículo saiu em 1903 e o 2.º em 1907. Dom Carlos I, rei de Portugal, nasceu em 1863. Ao longo da sua juventude viajou por várias cortes europeias. Numa dessas viagens conheceu Amélia de Orleans princesa de França e filha primogénita do Conde de Paris. Depois de um breve noivado desposou-a em Lisboa, em Maio de 1886. O reinado de D. Carlos foi caracterizado por diversas crises políticas. O rei era dotado de uma grande sensibilidade artística que o levou a dedicar a maior parte do seu tempo a um conjunto diferenciado de actividades, destacando-se a pintura, a ornitologia (estudo das aves) e a oceanografia. D. Carlos foi um apaixonado por fotografia, sendo o autor de uma grande parte do espólio da família real. O rei foi um pintor de talento, com grande capacidade expressiva e uma técnica apurada, demonstrando uma profunda sensibilidade na temática marinha. Assinava por vezes as suas obras com o nome "Carlos Fernando? Recebeu prémios internacionais de instituições, como a Sociedade Zoológica de Londres, Sociedade Oceanográfica do Golfo de Biscaia, ou o Museu História Natural, entre outros. Em 1985 foi publicado um fac-simile da obra e foi adicionado um terceiro volume ou suplemento, que contém mais 53 estampas de desenhos, até então inéditos, também de passeriformes, no entanto sem qualquer texto. Enrique Casanovafoi foi um pintor espanhol (Saragoça, 1850 - Madrid, 1913) que veio para Portugal em 1880, tornando-se professor de pintura do príncipe D. Carlos e do infante D. Afonso em meados de Maio de 1881, tarefa que se prolongaria até Setembro de 1884. Outros membros da família real foram também alunos de desenho e de pintura de Casanova, cujos ensinamentos influenciaram as obras artísticas de D. Maria Pia, D. Luís e D. Amélia. Casanova fez parte do círculo restrito da Corte, acompanhando-a nas suas viagens e estadias. Enrique Casanova foi um artísta polivalente na sua produção cerâmica, escultórica, pictórica e gráfica. A aguarela foi a técnica mais utilizada na pintura. A sua mestria, a técnica e o realismo das suas aguarelas possib

        Art et photographie. Conférence faite à la "Société Photographique de Lille"

      Lille, Imprimerie H. Morel, 1903, in-4, 7 p, Broché, Ce livret contient le discours de M. François Benoît, Professeur d'Histoire de l'Art à l'Université de Lille, prononcé lors d'une conférence faite à la "Société Photographique de Lille" le 24 janvier 1903. L'objectif de cette intervention était d'amener l'auditoire à s'interroger sur le rapport entre l'Art et la Photographie, dont le "rapprochement" a longtemps "par[u] inconcevable" et de "démontrer aux uns la nécessité, aux autres la légitimité d'un effort en vue de rendre l'image photographique non pas égale, mais analogue à l'image artistique" (p. 1). Thèmes abordés: Les ambitions de l'art et leurs applications à la photographie; La Genèse de l'oeuvre d'art; Les procédés photographiques, entre science et démarche artistiques. Convaincu de la complémentarité de l'Art et de la Photographie, l'auteur conclue: "Souvent elle [la photographie] offrira à la fois le précieux et réconfortant exemple d'un accord de la Science et de l'Art et l'illustration de cet axiome de l'antique philosophie: "le Beau est la splendeur du Vrai" (p.7). Dédicace de l'auteur sur la 1ère de couverture: "A Monsieur P. Dupont, hommage empressé". Cachets sur la couverture et la 1ère page indiquant la provenance: "Archigymnasii Insulensis Cathol.". Tampons à l'encre sur la couverture et la 1ère page indiquant la mention "Annulé". Couverture légèrement défraîchie. Quelques traces de mouillures. Exemplaire rare en bon état.

        Photo Album]: Pamatnik 1902-03 [Austro-Hungarian Navy]

      [Croatia] 1903 - Oblong quarto. Measuring 17" x 12". Custom cloth-covered portfolio album containing 38 stiff sheets with 165 gelatin silver photographs, and 28 mounted postcards. The photos measuring between 3.5" x 2.25" and 4" x 3". The sheets are hand titled in pen throughout. Near fine portfolio with part of the silk tie missing and modest wear to the extremities and hinges with fine and fresh images with only light bumping to the sheets. A portfolio album with photographs attractively arranged to commemorate service in the Austro-Hungarian Navy. Based in Pola, on the Adriatic (today the modern Croatian city of Pula), the Austro-Hungarian Navy (K.u.K. Kriegsmarine) was a major force in European naval affairs at the turn of the century and playing a role in international conflicts, such as the Boxer Rebellion in China. The person who created this album apparently served on three vessels during their tour, the Ironclad Warship SMS *Tegetthoff* (launched 1878), the Screw Corvette SMS *Saida* (launched 1878), and the pre-Dreadnought Monarch-class coastal defense ship SMS *Wien* (launched 1896). These three ships are each given separate photographic treatments, but a large number of other ships, both warships and commercial sailing vessels, are seen throughout the porfolio. Images capture shipboard life, torpedo boats, armaments training, naval maneuvers, shore life in Pula, a trip to the Near East, and naval visits to Dubrovnik and Gruz in Croatia, the Port of Piraeus (Athens), and Thessalonica in Greece, and the Greek Islands of Samos and Corfu. There are also a number of mounted postcards of various ships and locations, including a panorama of Pola signed by 25 sailors. About a dozen photos appear to have been captioned in the negative. A wonderfully comprehensive and uncommon view of the Austro-Hungarian Navy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Jim Cummins' Book Written by Himself

      Reed, Denver 1903 - This is a good-only copy of this very scarce first edition, but very much enhanced by a gilt-stamped green leather box made by Corry McSpadden, decorated inside with marbled paper. The book itself is shaken, outwardly worn mostly around the spine, with some internal stitching loosening but no loose pages. The front free endpaper is a mess, as something was violently torn from it, probably a bookplate. It is missing the upper corner and a lg. hole in the center. Otherwise pages are toned but clean, and I find no foxing. Written by one of the least violent and notable members of the James and Quantrill gangs, who they say was so mild-mannered that he was not arrested even when he tried to turn himself in, and was never tried. 191 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Framed 1903 Complaint of Prostitution, with Cabinet Card

      Philipsburg, Montana: Police Court, County of Granite, City of Philipsburg, 1903. Very Good +. A wonderful piece of Americana, specificaly Western Americana. An official 1903 warrant issued by the Philipsburg, Montana Police Judge Axtell in the matter of Josie Farrell for the crime of prostitution (a misdemeanor). Bail, fixed at $7.50, is here listed as forfeited. A cabinet card of Josie Farrell (taken by W.C. Mills and SIGNED BY JOSIE FARRELL above her image) accompanies the lengthy handwritten complaint, written on State of Montana Justice Court letterhead and signed by the Police Judge Axtell. The warrant itself is very clean and the handwriting clear and completely legible. And the cabinet card as well is crisp and well-preserved. Both have been set inside of a recent, clean black frame. A rare example of turn-of-the-century "justice" on the prairie.

        The Enchanted Island of Yew.

      The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Indianapolis 1903 - First edition early state with 8 color plates. Octavo, original gray cloth printed in black, vermilion and lavender, pictorial endpapers. Inscribed by L. Frank Baum on the half-title page. In very good condition with some rubbing to the cloth. Rare and desirable signed and inscribed. Yew is the most traditional of Baum's fantasy lands, with knights and castles as well as fairies. It resembles the countries of Queen Zixi of Ix more than the lands of Oz. The Island of Yew is set at some undisclosed place "in the middle of the sea". (Later commentators have sometimes placed it in Baum's Nonestic Ocean with the landmass that contains the Land of Oz and its associated countries but the book itself does not reference this.) Like Oz, it is divided into four countries associated with the four cardinal directions, plus a fifth central country that dominates the others. In the east of Yew lies the land of Dawna; in the west, "tinted rose and purple by the setting sun", is Auriel. In the south lies the kingdom of Plenta, "where fruits and flowers abounded"; and in the north is Heg, the most stereotypically feudal and medieval of the four. In the center, like the Emerald City in Oz, lies the fifth kingdom of Spor. But while the Emerald City is a powerfully positive place, the centrally-located Spor has just the opposite influence for Yew: Spor is a bandit land, ruled by the mysterious King Terribus, and populated by "giants with huge clubs, and dwarfs who threw flaming darts, and the stern Gray Men of Spor, who were the most frightful of all". The other peoples of Yew are pleased if the denizens of Spor come to rob them only once a year. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Rubàiyàt of Omar Khayyàm. The Astronomer-Poet of Persia. Rendered into English Verse.

      London MacMillan and Co. Limited 1903 - 8vo., (4), 112pp., contemporary vellum binding by Cedric Chivers, Bath, gilt panelled with hand-painted decoration and inlaid with mother-of-pearl to both boards and spoine, gilt panelled dentelles and linings, top edge gilt, others untrimmed; with tipped-in A.L.s. from Oliver Howard of Bernard Quaritch to his Aunt Nannie (C. Nannie Quaritch Wrentmore) as a Christmas gift, dated December 22nd, 1928, the usual age-toning to the vellum, else fine, near contemporary slip-case mounted with ink manuscript label of provenance. This is not only a rare Chivers binding but with a very relevant provenance since the tipped-in letter is from Oliver Howard of Bernard Quaritch. Quartich first published Fitzgerald's translation in 1859, the company's eponymous founder was a friend of his and Fitzgerald was a regular visitor to the shop. In the letter Howard explains: 'I expect you already have a copy of Omar, but I feel sure the binding will interest you. It has a thin transparent sheet of vellum stretched over the painting and inlay, in the manner of Edwards, the eighteenth century Halifax binder, as a protection.' Cedric Chivers, established his business in 1878 in the premises formerly occupied by Robert Riviere in Union Street, Bath. They subsequently moved to a double fronted shop at 39 Gay Street and then, as the business expanded, to a large house at Portway in Combe Park where they operated until 1990. In its prime the company experimented and specialised in highly skilled and beautiful bindings; this example being one of them. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1903 : 1903 Original Hardback Wisden

      1903. Hi, This lot is an 1903 Original Hardback Wisden. In Good + condition The gilt to the boards is very bright and the boards in generally are really good but if you lok at the front board at an angle in the light you can see some darkness to it. What is really nice about this book are the hinges. 1903s break all the time, this is one of two I have held that hasn't got a broken hinge. Now the front hinge has a line on it that makes it look weak but it is still strong. The rear hinge is excellent which is so rare. The yellow pastedowns in good condition some darkness around the edge of the front one as is the pageblock. Nice clean pages and excellent photoplate. Roger Hancock (brother of Tony) has his book plate to the front pastedown,

        Psychiatrie. Ein Lehrbuch für Studierende und Ärzte. 2 Bde.

      - Siebte, vielfach umgearbeitete Auflage. - Leipzig, Verlag von J.A. Barth, 1903, 8°, XV, (1), 478, (2) pp.; XIV, 892, (2) pp., 2 Litchdrucktafeln, 11 Autotxypietafeln, 31 Figuren im Text, 22 Schriftproben, 2 orig. Leinenbände; feines Expl. "Die Neubearbeitung des vorliegenden Buches, die ich durch wiederholte Vergrösserung der Auflagen möglichst hinauszuschieben gesucht habe, findet unsere Wissenschaft noch immer in lebhaften Entwicklungskämpfen. Die meisten der im letzten Jahrzehnt aufgetauchten klinischen Fragen harren noch ihrer endgültigen Lösung, und auch auf Gebieten, deren Kenntnis zu einem gewissen Abschlüsse gediehen zu sein schien, wie die Paralyse und die Epilepsie, erheben sich gewichtige Zweifel, ob nicht unsere bisherigen Anschauungen in wesentlichen Punkten einer Neuprüfung bedürfen. Diese Unsicherheit unseres Wissens ist gewiss kein unerfreuliches Zeichen; bedeutet sie doch nach einem lange dauernden, ziemlich unfruchtbaren Beharrungszustande eine Neubelebung des Bedürfnisses nach klinischer Durchforschung der Geisteskrankheiten. Ausserordentlich erschwert wird aber durch die Unfertigkeit und Zwiespältigkeit der weit auseinander weichenden, vielfach wechselnden Lehrmeinungen die Aufgabe, in einem gegebenen Zeitpunkte den Besitzstand unserer Wissenschaft dar- zustellen. So wenig ich mich zu der Selbstverleugnung entschliessen kann, Anschauungen, die ich für überwunden halte, nur deswegen weiter zu lehren, weil sie sich sonst noch allgemeiner Anerkennung erfreuen, so sehr scheint es mir doch geboten, einen vorläufig gewonnenen, wenn auch als unbefriedigend erkannten Standpunkt erst dann zu verlassen, wenn ein unzweifelhaft besserer gefunden wurde. - Aus diesem Grunde habe ich die Umänderungen in der neuen Bearbeitung auf das Unumgängliche beschränkt, so tief ich auch von der Verbesserungsbedürftigkeit der vorgetragenen Anschauungen, namentlich auf dem Gebiete der Dementia praecox, überzeugt bin. Im allgemeinen Teile hat namentlich die Lehre von den Erscheinungen des Irreseins eine umfassendere Durcharbeitung erfahren; ich hoffe, dass sie mehr und mehr durch eine tiefer dringende Zergliederung der krankhaften Seelenvorgänge mittelst des psychologischen Versuches ersetzt werden soll. Auf klinischem Gebiete sind neben Anderem; die alkoholischen Geistesstörungen, das Irresein bei Hirnerkrankungen und die Schlussabschnitte des Buches wesentlich umgestaltet worden. Die fest durchweg neuen pathologisch-anatomischen Bilder nebst den dazu gehörigen Erläuterungen verdanke ich, wie früher, der treuen und unermüdlichen Mitarbeiterschaft Nissls, zum Teil auch der Freundlichkeit Alzheimers. Heidelberg, den 19. September 1903. E. Kraepelin." Vorwort zur 7. Auflage. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
