        Wall Street Speculation

      1904 - KEYES, Franklin C. Wall Street Speculation. Its Tricks and Its Tragedies. A Lecture. Oneonta, New York: Columbia, 1904. Slim octavo, staple-bound as issued, original printed cream paper wrappers. $1800.First edition of this early cautionary work on speculation, warning against getting drawn in by the lure of gambling in the market.While many warned about speculation in the wake of the Wall Street Crash of 1929, few saw the dangers as early as Franklin Keyes in 1904. This slim work attempts to cast highlight both the practical and moral dangers of speculation. Keyes shows how the real-life transactions work in a unregulated, speculative market and how so many of them are little more than trickery, meant to defraud an honest, but uninformed, businessman. Keyes, a lawyer, was unable to stop his contemporaries from throwing their savings into the market, but many of his lessons about attempting to profit quickly at the edges of the market remain as pertinent as ever. Early title page owner signature. Front wrapper price of "25 cents" covered over in black, likely by original bookseller.Interior quite nice with slight staple rust as usual, only minor soiling and rubbing mainly to extremities of wrappers. An extremely good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Die Architektur des XX Jahrhunderts: Zeitschrift für moderne Baukunst.

      Large portfolios (493 x 324 mm), each in the publisher's original printed card wrappers with flaps, comprising thirty-eight parts (four to a year), covering the years 1904 -1913 and the first half of 1914, each part containing 25 large, titled b/w photo plates (950 in total), printed on thick card, each part preceded by extensive, descriptive letterpress with text in German, French and English (parts 4-9) German text only from parts 10-14, illustrated with plans, sections and elevations and photo figures, all loose as issued; ex- Bradford Public Library but without stamps, neat ink accession numbers to the upper corners of the front wrappers; a few closed tears to the wrappers of the early parts, otherwise a particularly bright, fresh set. First published in 1901, the present substantial run commences in 1904 and terminates with the last part published in June 1914, just prior to the outbreak of the Great War the following month. The journal's editor Hugo Licht (1841-1923), was an architect, teacher and Leipzig's Director of Municipal Building. His principal buildings designed in a monumental classical style include the city's Music Conservatory, the Grassi Museum and the City Hall. Die Architektur provides a wealth of descriptive and illustrative information on German, north European and American architecture of the period. As Barbara Miller Lane notes in the Macmillan Dictionary of Architects (Macmillan, 1982), it was 'as an architectural publicist and editor that Licht had his greatest influence. Very early in his career, Licht had developed close ties to the Ernst Wasmuth publishing house in Berlin; out of this relationship came a long series of extensive compilations of drawings and photographs of German architecture, which helped to make German architects aware of each other and to make their accomplishments available to the outside world. These compilations stressed new building types - office buildings, stores and factories - and contributed to the view that such buildings could legitimately be seen as "high architecture." In 1901 Licht persuaded Wasmuth to begin publishing Die Architektur des XX. Jahrhunderts: Zeitschrift für moderne Baukunst... , an extraordinarily lavish journal consisting principally of photographs, with accompanying commentary in three languages. Under Licht's direction, Die Architektur.., launched the careers of many young architects in Germany and did more than any previous journal had done to overcome provincialism in German architecture'. We have only been able to locate one complete run of the journal, that held by Nottingham University Library. In the one other instance where the run is complete it appears to lack two of the photo plates. Other institutions hold runs substantially smaller than the one offered here.

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). Ouvrage orné d'illustrations originales de L. Benett. Bel exemplaire.

        La Bible d'Amiens

      Mercure de France, 1904. - Mercure de France, Paris 1904, 12x19cm, broché. - Edizione originale della traduzione, note e la prefazione preparato da Marcel Proust, una delle copie numerate primo numero alla stampa. Autografo prezioso firmato dall'autore Baronessa Pierrebourg "... tributo di riconoscenza rispettoso ..." Restauri e la mancanza soddisfatte le prime lenzuola, bella copia della carta fragile. Baronessa Margaret Aimery Harty Pierrebourg, donna di lettere e amante di Paul Hervieu, ha preso un salotto letterario brillante dove in particolare hanno attraversato Raymond Poincaré, Henri de Régnier, Paul Valery, Alfred Capus, Abel Hermant, René Boylesve, Jaloux, Gerard Houville di Edward Estaunié, André Gide, Gabriele d'Annunzio e Robert de Flers. Regolarmente frequentato da Proust, il "Viale del Salone di legno" di Madame de Pierrebourg era con quella del suo rivale Madeleine Lemaire, e quelli della signora e la signora Strauss Aubernon, il crogiolo dei tanti ritratti psicologici di ricerca. Ma Margherita di Pierrebourg Claude FERVAL il suo pseudonimo, era soprattutto un romanziere ammirato Proust quando confidò a ogni nuovo romanzo ha pubblicato, la sua ammirazione e il suo desiderio di scrittura. Così, in una lettera del 1903, il commento struggente da un passaggio più forte sembra annunciare, dieci anni prima della ricerca, il futuro sacrificio scrittura di Proust e, nel romanzo, il fallimento Swann raggiungere questo obiettivo attraverso: "In tutto questo la filosofia che vogliamo tornare e chiedere, ad esempio, se è vero che la vita ci concede la grazia che vogliamo a patto di lui il resto sacrificio. Se si pensava che questo potrebbe essere usato per qualcos'altro a sacrificare, sarebbe rapido. Ma il resto stupisce, oscura il suo dolore volto. Infine, è difficile da dire. Ma hai ragione. " Questa sensazione è, anche se "difficile dire" è proprio lo stesso argomento di ricerca. E il suo esito, la riconquista di questa vita ai romanzi, ha più facilmente formulare l'urgenza in una lettera a Pierrebourg 1908: "sei un romanziere, voi! Se potessi creare esseri come te e situazioni, sarei felice! "Asserzione che riprende l'interrogatorio di Proust:" Sono uno scrittore? "All'inizio del suo primo libro. Perché quest'anno è anche l'inizio della scrittura di ricerca che troviamo nella Genesi che famoso '1908 libro ". Più di un consigliere benevolo della signora Pierrebourg ispirare il personaggio di Odette (per citarne Odette, preso in prestito da un romanzo autobiografico FERVAL) e sarà uno dei più convinti sostenitori di Du cote de chez Swann. Dedizione prezioso che riecheggia quella di Proust lo mandano dieci anni più tardi nel primo volume di La Recherche. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale de la traduction, des notes et de la préface établies par Marcel Proust, un des exemplaires de première émission numérotés à la presse. Précieux envoi autographe signé de l'auteur à la baronne de Pierrebourg : "... hommage de respectueuse reconnaissance..." Restaurations et manque comblés aux premiers feuillets, agréable exemplaire au papier fragile. La baronne Marguerite Aimery Harty de Pierrebourg, femme de lettres et maîtresse de Paul Hervieu, tenait un Salon littéraire brillant où se sont croisés notamment Raymond Poincaré, Henri de Régnier, Paul Valéry, Alfred Capus, Abel Hermant, René Boylesve, Edmond Jaloux, Gérard d'Houville, Edouard Estaunié, André Gide, Gabriele d'Annunzio et Robert de Flers. Régulièrement fréquenté par Proust, le « Salon de l'avenue du bois » de Madame de Pierrebourg fut avec celui de sa rivale Madeleine Lemaire, et ceux de Madame Strauss et de Madame Aubernon, le creuset des nombreux portraits psychologiques de la Recherche.   Mais Marguerite de Pierrebourg, Claude Ferval de son nom de plume, était surtout une romancière admirée de Proust à laquelle il confiait, à chaque nouveau roman qu'elle publiait, son admiration et son propre désir d'écriture. Ainsi dans une lettre de 1903, l'émouvant commentaire d'un passage de Plus fort semble - t - il annoncer, dix ans avant la Recherche, le futur sacrifice de Proust à l'écriture et, dans le roman, l'échec de Swann à atteindre cette grâce : « Dans tout cela une philosophie sur laquelle on voudrait revenir et vous demander par exemple si c'est bien vrai que la vie nous accorde la grâce que nous désirons à condition que nous lui sacrifions le reste. Si on pensait que cela peut servir à quelque chose de sacrifier le reste, ce serait bien vite fait. Mais le reste abêtit, empêche de voir en face sa douleur. Enfin c'est difficile à dire. Mais vous avez raison. » Ce sentiment qui lui est encore si « difficile à dire », c'est précisément le sujet même de la Recherche. Et son aboutissement, la reconquête de cette vie par l'œuvre romanesque, il en formulera plus aisément l'impérieuse nécessité dans une lettre à Pierrebourg de 1908 : « vous êtes romancier, vous ! Si je pouvais créer comme vous des êtres et des situations, que je serais heureux ! » Assertion à laquelle fait écho l'interrogation de Proust : « Suis - je romancier ? » au début de son premier carnet. Car cette année est aussi celle du début de l'écriture de la Recherche dont on trouve la genèse dans ce fameux « carnet de 1908 ». Plus qu'une conseillère bienveillante Mme de Pierrebourg inspirera le personnage d'Odette (jusqu'au prénom d'Odette, emprunté à un roman autobiographique de Ferval) et sera l'un des plus fervents soutiens de Du Côté de chez Swann. Précieuse dédicace qui fait écho à celle que Proust lui adressera dix ans plus tard sur le premier volume de La Recherche.

The book was ghost-written by Rolfe for Colonel Thomas, an adviser to the Rhodes Trustees; the commission resulted in court action by Rolfe for non-payment.

Philadelphia: Henry Altemus Company, 1904. First Edition Printed in America, third format (printed ca. 1908).Sixteenmo (5 3/8 x 4 inches; 136 x 102 mm.). [3]-127, [3, blank] pp., including thirty-one color plates after the designs by Potter, and Peter Rabbit vignette on half-title. Text printed in blue.Publisher's pale green cloth, cover stamped pictorially in black, yellow, blue, and red, spine and front cover lettered in red. Plain end papers. Original beige dust jacket, printed in black, red and green, with Peter Rabbit image on front panel, "Altemus' Wee Books Peter Rabbit No. 3" on spine and rear panel with Altemus advertisement "Atemus' Illustrated Wee Books for Wee Folks" listing six titles, the last being "The Robber Kitten". Jacket very slightly chipped at spine extremities, with minimal loss. An excellent example of an early American printing of Peter Rabbit."When Frederick Warne first published Peter Rabbit in London [in 1902], they sent a few copies to their firm in New York where, due to a misunderstanding, they were unfortunately sold before copyright was properly obtained. And for that reason the copyright for the book remains to this day in 'public domain' in the United States" (Quinby, p. 18). Altemus was the first to take advantage of this situation, copying the text and illustrations from Warne and issuing in 1904 not only the first pirated edition, but also the first edition printed in America. This edition was reprinted for several years without changing the "1904" date on the title-page. "Aletemus published Peter Rabbit in three different formats, The first format which is the rarest was published only in 1904" This little book had a gray cloth over floral boards, front cover with an oval color illustration of Peter Rabbit pasted-on. "By the end of 1904, Altemus had begun publishing the second format of the Wee Books for Wee Folks Series. Initially the book had a green cover? The inside of the book was identical to the first edition book. Between 1908-1912, Altemus published Peter Rabbit with a whitish/beige designed cover. This latter book dropped the decorated end papers. The illustrations are the same for the first three books. These books also have the curious set up such that there is a picture opposite of each page of text and then two blank pages. By 1917 a third format of the second edition was published. This blue book dropped the blank pages and the illustrations are different from preceding volumes. This book and all that followed it had 63 pages. The previous books had 123 pages."
