        ILLUSTRATIONS TO RUDYARD KIPLING'S JUNGLE BOOK

      Macmillan 1903 - Large portfolio comprising sixteen large mounted colour plates depicting scenes from Kipling's story (each image is 300mm by 250mm). Housed in publisher's green linen slipcase with gilt embossed decoration depicting a winged beast (a mythical emblem used by the Detmolds) to upper cover. Plates and mounts in very good condition, the portfolio with signs of wear, particularly to the fold over flaps. The sixteen colour illustrations are mounted and protected by captioned tissue guards. Maurice and Edward Detmold were twins born in London, who studied animal life in the Zoological Gardens. Much of the work the brothers did was with animal images, paying great attention to detail and producing images which are very true to life. This series of illustrations is undoubtedly their most celebrated achievement. Keith Nicholson wrote "The watercolours themselves must be among the finest book illustrations ever produced". The paintings were praised for their attention to detail, their realistic images and their great depth. Originals of the paintings are owned by the Victoria & Albert Museum. The portfolio was produced in a small limitation and sold for 5 guineas a set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Wissenschaftliche Ergebnisse der Expedition Filchner nach China und Tibet 1903-1913. In 11 text volumes and two atlases (one of Tibet and one of China), plus 56 "Routenkarten" and three "Marschroutenprofile".

      - Berlin, Ernst Siegfried Mittler & Sohn, 1903-1914. 13 volumes. Text volumes I-XI 4to (25.1 x 17.3 cm; first volume slightly larger), with 478 plates and eight folding maps. Original, red buckram, first volume in half cloth with mounted pictorial covers; [AND] two atlases in portfolio with printed title mounted (61 x 48 cm). Atlas of Tibet (volume XII) consisting of an overview sheet (being the original proof copy of the publisher and crew member G. Scholz, with many of his notes handwritten in the margins) and 26 (of 46) maps. Atlas of China (volume XIII): Wissenschaftliche Ergebnisse meiner Expedition nach China 1904. In two parts, Part I: Han-Kiang (Han-Ku - Hing-An-Fu), consisting of one cover sheet, one overview sheet and 29 maps. Part II: Tsin-Ling-Schan (Hing-An-Fu - Si-An-Fu), consisting of one cover sheet, one overview sheet and 35 maps [all published]. ADDED: this collection also contains 58 coloured lithograph plates of the part of the voyage that took place in Tibet. These so-called ‘routenkarten’ or ‘Itinerare’ were published separately by Mittler & Sohn in 1906 (not as part of the Ergebnisse), and form an extremely detailed overview of the route taken by Filchner's party. Finally, this collection also contains three "Marschroutenprofile". These detailed route maps also deal with the Tibetan part of the voyage and are extremely rare. They, too, were not published as part of the Ergebnisse, but may have formed part of another publication about the Expedition. We could not trace the exact publication history of these last three maps.= A unique collection, with all the text volumes focusing on the Tibetan part of the Filchner expedition and containing unique material. The proof copy of the overview sheet in the Tibet atlas comes with many pencil annotations and corrections by G. Scholz, who was an official member of the expedition. The maps in the atlas are divided into the following parts: I. Teil. Gebiet (Schara-Kuto - Tosson-Nor) II. Teil. Gebiet (Tosson-Nor - Oring-Nor), III. Teil. Gebiet (Kiang-Tschu - Yach-Tschu) IV. Teil. Gebiet (Yach-Tschu - Gotschun-Gomba - Sung-Pan-Ting) [the last two parts not included]. It is very uncommon to see the set of 56 "Routenkarten" or "Itinerare" being offered together with the Ergebnisse, as is the case here. These maps were published separately and are now extremely hard to find, even individual copies. The same applies to the three "Marschroutenprofile" (itinerary profiles). These detailed route maps also deal with the Tibetan part of the voyage and are extremely rare. They, too, were not published as part of the Ergebnisse, but may have formed part of another publication about the expedition. We could not trace the exact publication history of these last three maps. The first text volume, which includes many illustrations, is not indicated as such, and titled "Ein Beitrag zue Geschichte des Klosters Kumbum". According to Yakushi, "Catalogue of the Himalayan Literature", this is volume 1. It should not be confused with a later, much-edited version. Also included are the descriptions, by several experts, of the zoological and botanical results. In particular, the Orthoptera, by H. Karny, are extensively described with many new species of grasshoppers and locusts. Kolbe described some new Coleoptera, and Matschie new small mammals, including mice, a hare, a hedgehog, and a raccoon dog. The second volume has many photos of the landscape and people, the ninth volume deals with the important meteorological observations, the last text volume with astronomical observations and Earth magnetism. Volume ten has the addition ‘1. Teil’,but this is the only ‘Teil’ (part) published. Most text volumes with bookplate on the front paste-down and two rather vague stamps on the title page. Small library label mounted in the margin of the China portfolio front board. Of the 20 maps not included in the Tibet atlas, 17 are available in a good photocopy. Text leaf to plate 24 in volume VII detached, [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Old Violin

      Covington, Kentucky: Donaldson Art and Sign Company, 1903. Chromolithograph. Mild crease mid-image. Image: 35 x 24; sheet size: 36 x 25 inches. Classic of American artConsidered the father of American trompe l'oeil painting, William Michael Harnett began his career in 1865 when he began to practice the engraver's trade. In 1871 he moved to New York and studied at the National Academy of Design at Cooper Union. It was by the mid-1870's that he first began to exhibit at the National Academy of Design and at the Philadelphia Centennial. By 1880 Harnett had realized his lifelong dream of traveling to Europe to study in the best art centers there. He went to London, then to Frankfurt, then in 1881 to Munich where he lived for four years.Shortly after his return to the United States, Harnett painted The Old Violin, the most famous of all his single-object pictures. Its fame was spread by the chromolithograph produced by publisher Frank Tuchfarber of Cincinnati, who purchased the original oil painting from Harnett at the 13th Annual Industrial Exposition in 1886. Frank Tuchfarber was responsible for some of the finest American chromolithographs produced in the 19th century. The Old Violin is indeed an extraordinary achievement and one that was undoubtedly Tuchfarber's masterpiece. It was produced from no fewer than 17 separate stones and printed on metal, glass or paper. Copies of the print exist with either Tuchfarber's name at the lower right or, with the name of the Donaldson Art Sign Company, as in this issue.The present copy is a printer's proof that, unlike issued impressions, is not trimmed to the image; it retains its margins, with their registration crosses, color keys and ink bleeds.

      Thiebaud, p. 66; WorldCat (9 copies); cf. Bibl. accipitraria 219. Rare first and only edition of a work on falconry, followed by a short treatise on cormorant fishing by Alfred Belvallette, "well known in France as a skilful falconer, and he writes with a thorough knowledge of his subject... French falconers apply the term fauconnerie only to flights with the long-winged hawks (Peregrine, Merlin, Hobby, and Jerfalcon), flights with the short-winged Goshawk (autor) and Sparrow-hawk (épervier) coming under the expressive and very convenient term autourserie" (Bibl. accipitraria). The work partly contains original illustrations, including many photographs of falconers in action, but also copies of Schlegel and others. With only a couple spots, otherwise in very good condition.

With woodcut publisher's device (repeated on the title-page of part 3), 6 astronomical woodcuts and a few tables in text. 18th-century(?) stiff pasteboard wrappers.

      Adams M362; Riccardi I, Manulius 44 (this copy); VD 16, ZV 10344 (6 copies); cf. Hockey et al., Biographical encyclopedia of astronomers, p. 735. True second edition of Scaliger's Manilius, the oldest and most widely cited work on ancient astrology, enlarged with commentaries by Franciscus Junius. "Perhaps no critic has ever effected so great and permanent a change in any author's text as Scaliger in Manilius'. … The commentary is the one commentary on Manilius, without forerunner and without successor; after the passage of 300 years, it is the only avenue to a study of the poem …" (Houseman, in the preface to his edition of 1903)."For the average reader, the Astronomica served as a literary introduction to heavens and an advanced primer to astrology. Manilius' masterpiece, a Latin didactic poem in five books, unveils the cosmos in hexameter verse, explaining the celestial sphere and zodiac, 'describing the stars, constellations, and planets,' and above all, providing a Stoic vision of the celestial dance" (Hockey et al.).From the library of Pietro Riccardi, a notable collector of mathematical books. Some browning throughout and one page with its lower right corner torn off, but still a good copy and wholly untrimmed, preserving all deckles. Binding also good, with upper part of the front hinge restored.

        A complete set of the Dun Emer Press books.

      Dundrum, Dublin: Dun Emer Press, 1903–7 - 11 works, octavo. Original linen-backed grey or pale blue paper boards, except for In the Seven Woods which is in the original off-white linen. Housed together in a custom made grey-green cloth slipcase. Spine labels chipped, endpapers browned (as usual), light brown mottling to covers of In the Seven Woods. All colophons and some letterpress printed in red. An attractive complete set of the books issued by the Dun Emer Press, a private press established by Yeats's sisters and which played an important part in the Celtic Revival. The poet acted as literary editor and subsidised its productions; a number of the publications are Yeats first editions. "In 1902, when [Lily] Yeats and her sister, Elizabeth, were invited by Evelyn Gleeson (1855–1944), Gaelic leaguer and suffragist, to help set up a craft enterprise along the lines of Morris's utopian socialist ideals, they moved back to Dublin with their father. They took a cottage, Gurteen Dhas ('pretty little meadow'), in Churchtown, Dundrum, near the house, Dun Emer, in which Gleeson set up a printing press, carpet and needlework rooms, and other artistic ventures" (ODNB). Elizabeth Yeats took a short printing course and oversaw productions. "The Dun Emer Press was set up using a second-hand Albion handpress that it had acquired through advertising in local newspapers, and paper that had been manufactured at the County Dublin Saggart Mills. [the Press] showed how a specialist press, driven by a combination of the Gaelic League and the Arts and Crafts Movement, could work against the grain of imperial drives and directives, and produce small print runs of ideologically and aesthetically determined rather than economically driven texts. Ironically, in retracing the glories of the eighteenth century in its attention to detail and craft perfection, the press also provided imagery and an aesthetics that would be later grafted onto the new Irish republic and mass-produced in the twentieth century for the Irish diaspora around the world" (Frank Ferguson in The Oxford History of the Irish Book, Volume IV: The Irish Book in English 1800-1891, pp. 24-26).

Spines with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. Several volumes sunned at spine. With the bookplates of Ernest Ridley Debenham. Overall, a fine set. "The object of the editors has been to put the readers of this edition in possession of a complete collection of Ruskin's published Writings." It includes "all Ruskin's books now current in other editions?a reissue of all publications by him now out of print or only privately circulated?all his letters, articles, and other scattered writings, printed but not heretofore collected?and a collation of all the different editions, thus bringing together within the pages of each book everything that he at any time published in it." This edition also includes "all the illustrations inserted by Ruskin in his books, and all the drawings by him which have hitherto been published [many printed from the original plates]. These are an essential portion of his work" (Preface to This Edition). The last volume contains a bibliography, a catalogue of the manuscripts, and a full index to Ruskin's works. John Ruskin (1819-1900), "English writer, critic, and artist who championed the Gothic Revival movement in architecture and the decorative arts and had a strong influence upon public taste in art in Victorian England" (Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature). His major works include Modern Painters (1843-1860), The Seven Lamps of Architecture (1849), The Stones of Venice (1851-1853), Lectures on Architecture and Painting (1854), The Political Economy of Art (1857), Unto This Last (1862), Essays on Political Economy (1862-1863, later Munera Pulveris, 1872), Sesame and Lilies (1865), and Fors Clavigera: Letters to the Workmen and Labourers of Great Britain (1871-1884). His story The King of the Golden River (1851) was one of the earliest English fantasies for children. Sir Ernest Ridley Debenham, 1st Baronet (26 May 1865-25 December 1952), was a British businessman. He was responsible for the considerable expansion of the family's retail and wholesale drapery firm between 1892 and 1927. Educated at Marlborough College and Trinity College, Cambridge, he joined the successful business in Wigmore Street, London, which had been run by his grandfather and father. His restructuring activities led to the splitting of the manufacturing from the retail side of the business, under the name Debenham & Freebody (Freebody was the maiden name of his grandmother). He effected a merger with Marshall & Snelgrove as well as a takeover of Harvey Nichols. He was noted for his paternalistic attitude towards his staff, providing medical and educational support. He was also a pioneer in the dairy industry. On his retirement he sold most of his shares in the firm for £1.8M, so severing his family's connections with the retail chain that still bears his name. He was created a Baronet, of Bladen in the County of Dorset, in 1931 (Wikipedia).

        Astronomicon libri quinque.Including:- JUNIUS, Franciscus. In Manilii Astronomica variae lectiones.- SCALIGER, Joseph. In Manilii Quinque libros astronomicon commentarius & castigationes. [Heidelberg], Officina Sanctandreana [=Hieronymus Commelin], 1590. 3 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. With woodcut publisher's device (repeated on the title-page of part 3), 6 astronomical woodcuts and a few tables in text. 18th-century(?) stiff pasteboard wrappers.

      - Adams M362; Riccardi I, Manulius 44 (this copy); VD 16, ZV 10344 (6 copies); cf. Hockey et al., Biographical encyclopedia of astronomers, p. 735. True second edition of Scaliger's Manilius, the oldest and most widely cited work on ancient astrology, enlarged with commentaries by Franciscus Junius. "Perhaps no critic has ever effected so great and permanent a change in any author's text as Scaliger in Manilius'. The commentary is the one commentary on Manilius, without forerunner and without successor; after the passage of 300 years, it is the only avenue to a study of the poem " (Houseman, in the preface to his edition of 1903)."For the average reader, the Astronomica served as a literary introduction to heavens and an advanced primer to astrology. Manilius' masterpiece, a Latin didactic poem in five books, unveils the cosmos in hexameter verse, explaining the celestial sphere and zodiac, 'describing the stars, constellations, and planets,' and above all, providing a Stoic vision of the celestial dance" (Hockey et al.).From the library of Pietro Riccardi, a notable collector of mathematical books. Some browning throughout and one page with its lower right corner torn off, but still a good copy and wholly untrimmed, preserving all deckles. Binding also good, with upper part of the front hinge restored.

        Observations of a Naturalist in the Pacific between 1896 and 1899

      London, Macmillan and Co., , 1903. 2 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to spines, in dust jackets. Frontispiece to each and 12 other plates in all, six coloured maps, 2 of them folding lithographs. Some foxing, small nick at the head of the upper board of Volume II, but otherwise very good, unopened, in slightly rubbed and chipped, but almost entirely complete dust jackets, a very handsome set. First Edition. Portmanteau work combining Guppy's geological and physical observations of Vanua Levu, with his meticulous study of plant dispersal around the Pacific. Described by a recent journal of oceanic plant dispersal as "the outstanding beachcomber of the C19th", it is probably for his work in the second volume that he is best remembered, a pioneering work on tropical drift seeds and fruits based on what a contemporary reviewer called "a course of observation which is truly Darwinian in its patience and method," whilst Man, the journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, considered it to "contain much of interest to the student of anthropology." An important work, here offered in striking condition.

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire Année complète 1903 EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Bureaux de la Revue, 1903. Fine. Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1903, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding Edition Editor at bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, small gilded iron and double gold mesh queue.Douze January to December 1903. Hedges numbers conservées.Chaque number is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Henry Ghéon, André Gide ("Bathsheba, dramatic poem"), Charles Guerin, Walt Whitman, Francis Jammes, Nietzsche ("European Nihilism") etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine belonging to the first wave of small symbolist journals. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular collaborators, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. L'Ermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time like the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] that deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his symbolist spirit, employees are more interested in poetry than fiction. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, believes that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddling the end of the century aesthetics and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1903. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Henri Ghéon, André Gide ("Bethsabé, poème dramatique"), Charles Guérin, Walt Whitman, Francis Jammes, Nietzsche ("Le Nihilisme européen"), etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

        Bourses de voyage EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Paris: Hetzel, 1903. Fine. Hetzel, Paris s.d. (1903), 12x19cm, 2 volumes reliés. - First edition, for which there were no large paper copies. §Modern pastiche bindings by P. Goy & C. Vilaine, half bronze calf Bradel bindings over marbled paper boards, gilt fillets to spine, covers mounted on guards and preserved. §Very rare autograph inscription from Jules Vernie to [Achille] Tournier, prefect of the Somme at the time, and also enriched with a calling card from Jules Verne mounted on guards. §With original illustrations by L. Benett. §Jules Verne moved to Amiens, his wife's home town, in 1871: "Due to a wish of my wife's, I am settling in Amiens, a calm, orderly town, of even temper; society here is both cordial and well-read. We are near Paris, near enough to catch the rays without the unbearable noise and the sterile agitation. But to tell you the truth, my Saint-Michel remains moored in Crotoy." His affection for the region did not cease to grow and he never again left the capital of Picardy, taking an active part in local politics. Appointed director of the Academy of Sciences, Literature and Arts in 1875, he gave a famous speech on the occasion: "An ideal city: Amiens in the year 2000." In 1888, he was elected to the Municipal Council, of which he remained a member till 1903. It was the Prefect of the Somme who gave him his decoration when he was made an Officer of the Legion d'Honneur in 1892. "People often ask me why I live in Amiens, I who am so Parisian by instinct. Well, it's because - like I told you - I have Breton blood, I enjoy peace and I could not be happier anywhere than in a monastery. A calm life of study and work is my pleasure" (June 1893 in MacClure's Magazine). §A very good copy. % - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers. Reliures à la bradel en demi veau bronze, dos lisses ornés de filets dorés, plats de papier marbré, couvertures montées sur onglets conservées, reliures pastiches modernes signées de P. Goy & C. Vilaine. Très rare envoi autographe signé de Jules Verne à [Achille] Tournier, alors préfet de la Somme, enrichi d'une carte de visite de Jules Verne montée sur onglet. Ouvrage orné d'illustrations originales de L. Benett. Jules Verne s'installe à Amiens, ville natale de sa femme, en 1871: « Sur le désir de ma femme je me fixe à Amiens, ville sage, policée, d'humeur égale, la société y est cordiale et lettrée. On est près de Paris, assez pour en avoir le reflet, sans le bruit insupportable et l'agitation stérile. Et pour tout dire, mon Saint-Michel reste amarré au Crotoy. ». Son affection pour la région ne cessera de croître et il ne quittera plus la capitale picarde, participant activement à la vie politique locale. Nommé directeur de l'Académie des Sciences, Belles-Lettres et Arts, en 1875 il prononce à cette occasion un discours resté célèbre : "Une Ville idéale : Amiens en l'an 2000." En 1888 il est élu au conseil municipal d'Amiens où il siège jusqu'en 1903. C'est le préfet de la Somme qui lui remet sa décoration lorsqu'il est promu officier de la légion d'honneur en 1892. "Les gens me demandent souvent, pourquoi je réside à Amiens, moi qui suis si complètement Parisien d'instinct. Eh bien, parce que, comme je vous ai dit, j'ai du sang breton, et que j'aime la tranquillité, et je ne pourrais être plus heureux que dans un cloître. Une vie calme d'étude et de travail fait ma joie. " ( juin 1893, in Mac Clure's magazine). Bel exemplaire.
