        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.

Bound in mezzo dolore angoli di abete, retro con cinque bande, piatti di carta marmorizzata, guardie e contreplats di carta fatta a mano, montato su coperte tenuti schede, vincolante pastiche moderno.

Ouvrage orné d'illustrations originales de L. Benett.   Très rare envoi autographe signé de Jules Verne à [Achille] Tournier, alors Préfet de la Somme. 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). 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 HOLY OFFICE.

      Privately printed for the author [1904 or 1905] - 4to. The first extant printing of the author's second separate publication. Slocum & Cahoon A2. Preceded only by "Et Tu, Healy," which was privately printed by Joyce's father when his precocious son was but nine years old. Though it is known to have existed, no one has ever seen a copy of this juvenile effort. The circumstances under which the argumentative and irreverent "The Holy Office" was printed were spelled out by Joyce's brother, Stanislaus. After its composition, Joyce commissioned the broadside's printing in Dublin, but because the then-indigent Joyce could not come up with the wherewithal to pay the printer, he never received the copies, which presumably, were deep-sixed. No copy is known to have survived. Years later, Joyce, now solvent and living in Pola, had the poem printed again, the copies of which he and his brother distributed through the mails to members of the author's literary circle. Joyce's bibliographers estimate that fewer than 100 copies were produced. Fine. Housed in a custom-made cloth chemise. Among the rarest of the author's primary publications [Attributes: First Edition]

Spine faded, spine ends frayed, board edges toned, edge of text block and contents lightly foxed, rear hinge split but holding. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, one of 2,000 copies.

White (1860?1930) joined the British South Africa Company Police in April 1891, and was appointed commissioner of the Mashonaland Mounted Police (later the Rhodesian Mounted Police) in January 1893; he relinquished his command at the time of the Jameson Raid (1895-6), with some speculation that he was complicit in its planning. Wills notes that "since 1895 White has been connected with several business undertakings in Rhodesia." With White's bookplate to the front pastedown. 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.

        Tale of Peter Rabbit

      1904. American Printing of 'Peter Rabbit'In the Original Dust JacketPOTTER, Beatrix. The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Altemus' Wee Books for Wee Folks. Thirty-one Illustrations. 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." (www.henryaltemus.com).Quinby 2c; Linder, p. 109; V&A 1640 (Beatrix Potter's own copy).

Laid in are two post-cards with pencilled notes by Charles Home McCall: one states simply, 'First Edition'; the other, signed at foot, discusses in some bibliographic detail the printing of a Whistler catalogue in terms that convey the artist's refusal to compromise as well as the detailed nature of the printer's work. A note in red ink at the head, by McCall's son Robin, clarifies that the below does not refer to the only catalogue of Whistler's that he has been able to trace to the Ballantyne Press, that being posthumous - further research clarifies that it refers to the catalogue for 'Nocturnes, marines, & chevalet pieces', for which it is interesting to have this bibliographic note (however, the disappearance of the copy to which the note originally belonged further compounds its scarcity). An interesting copy of the work where Ricketts concludes his introduction by acknowledging the 'untiring energy and intelligent sympathy' of McCall and his father (p. xvii), with the insertions indicating its provenance.

        HISTORY OF THE DELHI CORONATION DURBAR HELD ON THE FIRST OF JANUARY 1903 TO CELEBRATE THE CORONATION OF HIS MAJESTY KING EDWARD VII EMPEROR OF INDIA. Compiled from official papers by order of the Viceroy and Governor General of India

      John Murray, London 1904 - Plan of the Amphitheatre, plate illustrating the Durbar medal, folding panorama of the Durbar [equivalent to 4 pages], large folding seating plan, large folding coloured plan of the camps, 30 full page photogravure portraits by Walker & Cockerell after various photographers, 18 full page half tone illustrations form photographs, xiv, 347pp. All plates etc fully collated and correct, all photogravures retain their original tissue guards. Original red cloth gilt, top edges gilt, spine very faded and worn at the head, boards with royal arms etc in gilt rather brighter than usual, hinges sound [it is a very over-heavy book which needs careful handling], internally excellent. with just a few pencil remarks by the original owner. Interesting presentation inscription on a part printed slip pasted to the front free endpaper "Sent by Order of the Government of India to Mr H Groves, Chief Engineer (Retired] Public works Department, August 1904". A good large group photograph is pasted to the front pastedown -presumably including H Groves but we cannot identify the sitters.This work is the most comprehensive contemporary record and far superior to modern reprints because of the quality of the illustrations, particularly the photogravures, which are printed on heavier paper. The portraits are not the most obvious subjects and include interesting representatives from distant areas [Kalat, the Shan States, Nepal, etc]. as well as the expected Indian rulers and very high British officials. A particularly nice association copy and in the best overall condition we have seen in the last five years. This book is not easily found in good condition: its great weight often leads to its being badly shaken, the binding cloth is not the strongest, and the photogravure plates and panorama have often fallen victim to removal.

        Journey to Lhasa and Central Tibet

      John Murray 1904 - Expanded edition. Bound in publisher's decorated red cloth. Gold lettering with gold and blue Tibetan symbol on front. xvi, 368 p. 41 illustrations and maps. Large color map of Tibet at rear. NOT Ex-libris. Sarat Chandra Das (1849-1917) was a Bengali scholar of Tibet. Das has been described as "a traveler, explorer.linguist, a lexicographer, an ethnographer and an eminent Tibetologist." Das was also a British spy. Born in Chittagong, Das trained as an engineer in Calcutta. He became headmaster of the Bhutia Boarding School in Darjeeling. Bhutia was a school for Sikkimese and Tibetan boys, many of who would be trained to fill a special place in the British colonial regime, the role of a Pundit. Das became a "pundit" (and an instructor at the school) for British intelligence. Pundits acted as a network of British-trained operatives who were tasked to make inroads in the foreboding inner regions of Asia where white embassies could not gain entry. Tibet and other inland areas were increasingly gaining attention from competing British, Russian and Chinese economic and strategic interests. Derek Waller speculates that the character of Huree Chunder Mookerjee in Kipling's Kim was based on Das, p.193. As a teacher, Das learned Tibetan to speak with his students. He read the limited books on the region available, notably of Bogle (1773-5) and Manning's travels (1811) to Tibet. Manning and Bogle were the last successful British explorations of Tibet, a nation who steadfastly resisted western intrusion. Das's language ability secured him entry with his colleague, Lama Ugyen Gyasto, to Tashilhunpo monastery in 1879, as the Prime Minister wished to learn Hindi from him. In 1881, Das returned to Tashilhunpo and made his way to Lhasa, Sakya, and the Tsangpo River. There he met with Thupten Gyatso, the 13th Dalai Lama (d. 1933) and returned to Darjeeling with a Yak loaded with over 200 Tibetan manuscripts. After Das was revealed to be a British agent, Tibetan authorities increased restrictions on travelers and the Minister who had sponsored his entry was put to death. What makes Das's expedition so interesting is that he successfully brought back a wealth of information on an unknown land to the larger world. The Tibet that Das glimpsed is now gone, with the passage of history and destructive forces of modernity and Chinese domination. This book compiles the story of Das's journey, his reports, photographs, diagrams, ethnographic observations, etc of a lost Tibet. Das went on to become an important Tibetan scholar and author an extensive multi-volume dictionary. The British would not successfully return to Tibet until 1903-4, with Colonel Francis Edward Younghusband's exhibition (invasion and massacre of ~5000 Tibetans). (Significantly, Younghusband was the President of the Royal Geographical Society, which notably published the 1902 edition of Das's book. An interesting, and dark connection to Das's legacy.)
