         Ariane ou Le chemin de la paix éternelle. [Unito con:] La maison sur le Nil ou Les apparences de la vertu

      Paris: Charles Meunier, 1904. Due volumi in custodia. Ciascuno di [5], 28, [6] pagine. 29x22 cm.Bella rilegatura editoriale con leggere abrasioni ai dorsi e qualche lievissimo segnetto sui piatti. Fregi e titoli in oro sui dorsi. Ampio ex libris sul primo foglio bianco di ciascun volume; interni ottimi. Staccato l'ultimo foglio del volume "Ariane". Testo inquadrato in cornice dorata. Custodia editoriale. Edizione di notevole eleganza. (Monod, 7367; 7420). [M237] Opere pubblicate editorialmente insieme in unico contenitore. Gli esemplari fanno parte della tiratura di 125 copie (su un totale di 140) stampate su carta vélin bianca, ciascuno con 10 splendide illustrazioni colorate "a la poupée", opera di Georges Rochegrosse per "Ariane" e di Paul Gervais per "La maison sur le Nil". In fine di ciascun volume, tripla suite delle illustrazioni, su carta Cina, con scomposizione cromatica. La tecnica di coloritura "a la poupée" consisteva nella distribuzione di inchiostri di vari colori, mediante un tampone oppure il polpastrello, sulla superficie della lastra da stampare. Il rame così preparato passava quindi al torchio per la stampa, la quale, volta per volta e per ogni successiva tiratura, richiedeva sempre l'intervento dell'artista sulla matrice metallica. Questo procedimento, da non confondersi col monotipo, faceva sì che il risultato non fosse mai perfettamente identico e spingeva gli artisti a sperimentare anche variazioni cromatiche rilevanti all'interno di una stessa tiratura.

         Masterpieces by Jakuchu (with Biographical Sketch of the Artist)

      The Kwansai Photograph Company, Osaka 1904 - First thus. Folio. Japanese silk binding with folding case. Very good: minor rubbing. 30 plates: 6 colour woodblock plates and 24 collotype black and white plates. The plates are printed directly on the paper. The plates are quite consistent in size. Limited to 2000 copies. Alle edges gilt. Ito Jakuchu was a Japanese painter of the mid-Edo period when Japan had closed its doors to the outside world.

Many of his otherwise traditional works display a great degree of experimentation with perspective, and with other very modern stylistic elements. A beautiful work! [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         A Journal of a Tour of Discovery Across the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, in the Year 1813 Third edition

      Maitland: T. Dimmock, 1904. Wrappers a little faded; thin spine neatly renewed.. Small octavo, original dark wrappers, preserved in a bookform box. A fine copy of the so-called third edition (actually the fourth if a facsimile published in 1893 is included in the count), published by the author's grandson, Charles Blaxland. This edition includes excerpts of letters written to C.R. Blaxland about the 1813 expedition. This 1904 edition is actually one of the scarcer of the early imprints: the first edition of 1823 is practically unobtainable, while the limited editions published late in the nineteenth century (the second edition of 1870 and the 1893 facsimile) have become quite scarce. Provenance: Arthur Jose (1863-1934, journalist, historian and editor of the Australian Encyclopedia), inscribed to him in ink on front wrapper "with the [?publisher's] Compts"; private collection (Sydney).

Fick (1886-1939), Sohn des Physiologen Adolf Eugen Fick (1829-1901)."On the basis of subsequent studies, Rudolf A.Fick (1886-1939) concluded that the theory of "Normalstellung" was not entirely valid, as the recumbent position of a cadaver could not be transfered to the vertical stance. The degree of limbar lordosis is much less when the body is recumbent than when vertical in the later position the center of gravity shifts forward considerably more than Braune and Fischer assumed. Fick contended that no one posture is common for people of all races and cultures. Modern anthropological investigations have confirmed his opinion." ct.

Bel exemplaire.  "Cet ouvrage anonyme, signé par un auteur se présentant comme un « ancien élève de l'école polytechnique » cautionne l'expertise d'Alphonse Bertillon dans l'affaire Dreyfus. Selon cette expertise, le bordereau constitue une pièce qui a fait l'objet d'une forgerie de la part du capitaine Alfred Dreyfus. La même année que la publication de ce livre (1904), l'analyse de Bertillon (en particulier ses calculs de probabilité appliqués à un bordereau déchiré qui a été reconstitué à l'aide d'agrandissements photographiques ne permettant pas d'en obtenir un fac-simile d'une exactitude incontestable) est pourtant sévèrement critiquée par Henri Poincaré, Gaston Darboux et Paul Appell. Ces trois illustres mathématiciens en soulignent le caractère peu scientifique dans un rapport commandité par la Cour de cassation qui joue un rôle non négligeable dans la réhabilitation de Dreyfus."

         Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Frau Johann Strauss").

      Wohl Wien, 7. IV. 1904. - 3½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Kl.-4to. Als Erbin der Rechte an Strauß' Werken an einen Herrn, möglicherweise ein Anwalt, der ihr in einem drohenden Tantiemenstreit um "La Tzigane", die sogenannte "Pariser Fassung" der "Fledermaus", behilflich sein soll. Das Libretto zu Strauß' wohl berühmtester Operette, die anfangs nur mäßig Anklang fand und erst später als Höhepunkt der Goldenen Ära der Wiener Operette gefeiert werden sollte, schrieben Carl Haffner und Richard Genée nach "Le Réveillon", einem französischen Vaudeville von Offenbachs Librettisten Meilhac und Halévy. Frau Johann Strauß zitiert deswegen aus einem Brief des Lyrikers Fernand Gregh, in dem es heißt: "Cette repartition est certainement tant à fait logique de plus il est à craindre qu'une difficulté se présente, une partie de la musique de Fledermaus ayant servi pour les representations de la 'Tzigane', les librettistes de cette dernière pièce pourraient revendiquer une part quelconque, qui serait alors prise sur les 6 % attribués à M. Ludovic Halévy et aux heritiers Meilhac". Und merkt hierzu an: "D'après les experiences fait à Paris, je tiens à avoir mes traités en regle, et grace à vous, j'espère y parvenir. De même, je vous prie, puisque les drains de représentations en France (Provinces) m'appartiennent de me communiquer les demandes et propositions des théâtres, pour regulariser mes conditions [.]". - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Adresse und schwarzem Trauerrand.

         The Works].

      Golike i Vilborg Skt. Peterburg -1910 1904 - Three volumes folio, the third volume with 5 parts (33.5 x 22.5 cm). Title, [4], frontispiece, [2], 384, [4] pp, incl. 2 full page illustrations; Title, [2], frontispiece, [2], 362, [4], VIII pp, incl. 6 full page illustrations; [2], title, frontispiece, III, 589, II, [4] pp, title, [2], frontispiece, [2], 158, XXXV pp., incl. 5 full page illustrations, with multiple illustrations in text. Full tan calf, two morocco labels with gilt lettering to spines; a bit rubbed, with some scratches. Fresh example of one of the finest literary publications produced in the Russian Empire. Rare, from the limited edition of 500 copies distributed only among subscribers. The present copy is number 89. It includes the last part, part 5 of volume III, not present in Smirnov-Sokolskiy's library nor, strangely enough, in Muratova's listing. Friends of Gorbunov launched this lavish production to celebrate the author, and passed the profit from the sales onto his family. It became, thanks to the scholarly work put in it and the long list of works included, the best edition of Gorbunov's writings as well as an important source on the Russian theatre of the 19th century. It was also an impressive production, in a large format with high quality paper and fine plates, which led the Russian writer Vladimir Lidin to claim it to be one of the most luxurious editions ever printed in Russia ("Druziya moi - Knigi", 1962). Gorbunov (1831-95) was a talented actor, playwright and novelist. He became well known for his short stories depicting episodes from folk life, which were published in such periodicals as Iskra, Sovremennik, Russkiy Vestnik among others. In all his literary works he skilfully combined a deep knowledge of the common person's life and traditions, with an ability to see them from a humorous perspective. Muratova 5502; Smirnov-Sok. 2475; not in Kilgour, Gubar and Markov. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         1903 ???. ????? ??????. [The Cherry Orchard [in] Collection of the "Knowledge" Society for the year 1903. Book 2].

      Isidor Goldberg Skt. Peterburg 1904 - 8vo (20 x 14.5 cm). [2] ll. including title, 318, [2] contents, [4] pp. ads; occasional light soiling. Original wrappers; slightly soiled. Fine copy of the first appearance of Chekhov's 'Cherry Orchard' (pp. 29-105), neatly sidestepping earlier contractual obligations to the publisher Adolf Marks - who still published later in 1904 the book-form version of the play, which introduced a few minor changes to the text. In the event, it proved the end of their connection: both playwright and publisher died in 1904. Earlier that year, on January 17th, the play premiered at the Moscow Art Theatre in a production directed by Konstantin Stanislavskiy. This Almanac also includes Kuprin's 'Mirnoe Zhitie'. The 'Znanie' Society, set up by members of the Literacy Committee under K.P. Piatnitski in 1898, was reorganised by Gorkiy after his first great success, and began releasing these 'Collections' in 1904. Lenin wrote that in them Gorkiy himself tried 'to concentrate the best forces of creative literature'. The Almanacs also featured Bunin, Yushkevitch, Andreyev and Gorkiy himself. In the reactionary atmosphere after the revolutions of 1905, many of its members quit the Society, which had always been inclined towards the revolutionary and contentious; Gorkiy broke off his connection with the publication in 1912 while living abroad.
