        Loyal Traitors : A Story of Friendship for the Filipinos

      James H West, Boston 1903 - Cloth stains, edgewear, light cock, light tone, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover. ; Geoffrey D Smith; American Fiction 1901-1925: A Bibliography; B-974. "By no means as prolific as other prose-writers, Raymond Bridgman published one the movement's only novels, Loyal Traitors. The story is somewhat of a non-fiction account of the movement that indirectly caricatures personalities of famous anti-imperialists like Francis Ellingwood Abbot, Moorfield Storey and David Fagen. The heroine, Faith Fessenden has the potential of being the image of feminine liberty. She is sensitive, kind, and just. The story turns on three Bostonians going to the Philippines to fight alongside Aguinaldo's rebels." - Michael Cullinane; Liberty and American Anti-Imperialism, 1898-1909. Quite uncommon progressive movement novel supporting the armed Philippine independence movement against American annexation. ; 310 pages [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Reigen. Zehn Dialoge. Geschrieben Winter 1896-97. Mit einem farbigen Titelblatt und Buchschmuck von Berthold Löffler.

      Wiener Verlag, Wien und Leipzig 1903 - 250 S., 3 Blatt. Illustrierte Orig.-Broschur nach dem Jugendstil-Entwurf von Bernhard Löffler. Schnitzler war die Brisanz seiner berühmten Szenefolge klar: Er veröffentlichte den "Reigen" 1897 zunächst nur als Privatdruck für seine Freunde in 200 Exemplaren. Als 1903 die hier vorliegende erste öffentliche Ausgabe erschien, wurde sie in Deutschland denn auch sofort verboten. Die offizielle erste Bühnenaufführung fand 1920 in Berlin statt, die Proteste und Prozesse nahmen ihren Lauf. Schnitzler selbst wurde der Anfeindungen schließlich überdrüssig und verhängte 1922 ein Aufführungsverbot, das erst 1982 aufgehoben wurde. Der Rücken unten mit schwachem, kleinem Wasserrand und der Umschlag an den Kanten etwas aufgeworfen, insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein gut erhaltenes Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren.

        LES HEURES DE LA FEMME A PARIS. Tableaux parisiens dessinés, gravés à l'eau-forte et accompagnés d'un texte par Pierre Vidal.

      Éditions Boudet, Librairie Lahure, Paris, 1903 - 1 volume in-4 (24 x 18,5 cm) de VIII-192-(1) pages. 96 aquatintes d'après les aquarelles de l'artiste (48 hors-textes 3/4 de page, 24 grandes vignettes d'en-tête et 24 culs-de-lampe. Premier plat de couverture illustré de la reproduction d'une grande composition de l'artiste à l'aquarelle. Prospectus de l'éditeur relié in fine (4 pages dont 1 hors-texte à l'aquatinte). 150 frises de fleurs variées par l'artiste et mises en couleurs à l'aquarelle au pinceau à la main par le coloriste E. Greningaire. Reliure de l'époque demi-maroquin rose à larges coins, filets dorés, dos lisse richement orné de feuillages fleuris avec délicates pastilles de mosaïque de maroquin vert pour les fleurs. Tête dorée, non rogné, relié sur brochure, deux plats de couverture conservés (seul le premier plat est illustré) en parfait état. Ensemble à l'état proche du neuf (reliure signée DURVAND). ÉDITION ORIGINALE ET UNIQUE ÉDITION. TIRAGE A 250 EXEMPLAIRES SEULEMENT. Il a été tiré 25 exemplaires sur Japon avec suite, 5 exemplaires sur Japon nominatifs et 220 exemplaires sur vélin de cuve des papeteries du Marais, fabriqué spécialement pour cet ouvrage. CELUI-CI, 1 DES 220 EXEMPLAIRES SUR VÉLIN DE CUVE. Si par la date de son impression (15 mars 1903) ce livre n'appartient plus à la catégorie des livres dits "fin de siècle", il s'en rattache pourtant par toutes ses composantes. Pierre Vidal (né en 1849) appartient à l'autre siècle et a travaillé abondamment pour plusieurs ouvrages encore recherchés de nos jours par les amateurs de beaux illustrés. Il illustre avec talent Les Heures Parisiennes, Paris qui Crie (1890), un Conte choisi de Maupassant publié par Octave Uzanne pour les Bibliophiles Contemporains (1891), Paris qui consomme (1893), la Femme à Paris d'Octave Uzanne (1894), La Vie des Boulevards Madeleine-Bastille et la Vie à Montmartre de Georges Montorgueil (1896), etc. L'ensemble de ces ouvrages se caractérise par une abondante illustration faite d'après nature, véritables scènes de vie prises sur le vif. On y retrouve aussi bien la lingère que la bourgeoise, la dame du monde comme la cocotte ou la prostituée de mains, les cabarets, les bals, toute la vie du Paris fin de siècle (Paris 1900) se retrouve dans ses compositions toujours précises et vivantes. Les Heures de la Femme à Paris a été entièrement mené par Pierre Vidal, riche illustration servie autour d'un texte divisé en 24 courts chapitres : ces 24 heures de la vie d'une femme à Paris en 1900. Depuis six heures du matin avec les balayeuses, le lever de la bonne, en passant par huit heures avec les ouvrières à l'atelier, les demoiselles de magasin, ou encore une élégante de deux heures, chez la couturière pour les quatre heures ou la sortie des ouvrières à sept heures du soir ; la folie de la nuit qui commence à neuf heures du soir avec les Folies-Bergères, le Moulin-Rouge, une danseuse moderne ; enfin, la nuit est là, le ballet de onze heures, l'arrivée au bal ; minuit et ses sorties de théâtre, sorties des artistes, les après-spectacles ; la nuit qui se prolonge, trois heures du matin avec la soupe aux Halles. Cinq heures du matin avec le retour du bal. Tout y est. Pierre Vidal qui a collaboré plusieurs fois avec Octave Uzanne entre 1891 et 1894, a dû laisser à son ancien "auteur" comme un sentiment d'amertume et de jalousie lorsque ce dernier a vu sortir ce livre au printemps 1903. Tout dans ce livre est réussi : le papier, les encres, l'illustration, le format. Le tout concourant à faire de ce volume l'un des joyeux bibliophiliques de l'époque. Nul doute qu'Octave Uzanne a dû pâlir . SUPERBE EXEMPLAIRE FINEMENT RELIÉ PAR DURVAND. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Malay - English Dictionary.: Part I: (Alif to Za). Part II: (Sin to Nya). Arranged according to the Jawi alphabet. Index.

      Singapore Kelly & Walsh. 1903 - The complete first edition as issued in January 1903, with appendices, index, addenda and corrigenda, and the 1903 title page and preface. A monumental work, and still the most useful dictionary for Jawi Malay. Wilkinson served in the Malayan Civil Service from 1889 and spent much of his spare time collecting words and testing meanings with local informants. After this dictionary was published in parts between 1901 and 1903 he continued his researches till he left Malaya in 1915. He was the first to supersede Marsden's Dictionary, and with this work "Malay and English lexicography had been brought almost to its peak" - Russell Jones in his introduction to the reprint of Marsdens Dictionary and Grammar. This peak he attained with his later Rumi dictionary in 1932. Contemporary half calf, neatly re-backed, preserving original spine. A very good copy.

        Form & Farbe im Fla¨chenschmuck.

      Stuttgart. Julius Hoffman. No date. 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.

      Portland. 1903. - Panoramic photograph comprised of fourteen silver prints, each 7 x 9 inches, for a total size of 7 x 126 inches. Quarto. Original red cloth boards, gilt stamped. Prints attached to stiff paper mounts. First three prints bound together and attached to front pastedown; final eleven bound together, loose in binding. A bit of clouding at edges of several images, but overall very good. A remarkable panoramic photograph showing the growing city of Portland, Oregon at the dawn of the twentieth century. The panorama is composed of fourteen silver prints, totaling more than ten feet in length, and depicts the city from the west looking east. The Willamette River runs through the center of the photographs, and Portland is shown rising up on either side, with houses, multi-story buildings, docks, warehouses, and a growing downtown. The hilly topography of the city and surrounding area is clearly demonstrated, and Mount Hood can be seen in the fifth panel. The photographer, L.C. Henrichsen, was born in Denmark and to Portland in 1861, where he had a long career as a prominent jeweler and optician. A scarce image, with OCLC locating only eight copies. A copy of this panorama sold at a Swann Galleries photography sale in 2014 for $4500 plus house premium (or net $5625).
