Contemporary morocco, gilt frames to boards, gilt title to spine, untrimmed edges. Moderate rubbing to extremities, with some wear to spine ends and corners, scuffing and light soiling to front board, which is slightly bowed, a few cracks to text block. Light toning to text, foxing in a few places, internally clean. $950. * First edition. This volume, containing Attorney General Philander C. Knox's Supreme Court argument in the landmark Northern Securities Case, and the federal government's appeal of the case from the Circuit Court to the Supreme Court, was likely bound by Knox as a gift to a colleague or friend. Decided in 1904, the Northern Securities Case was a pivotal case in the legal history of the Progressive Era and the history of railroads in the American West. The Northern Securities Company was a powerful trust formed by J.P. Morgan and James G. Hill to control railroad trunk lines in the Northwest and into Chicago and stifle competition. President Roosevelt, seeing an opportunity to exert federal power against a business monopoly, instructed Knox to bring suit against the Northern Securities Company. Knox handled the case personally, writing the appeal from the decision of the Minnesota Circuit Court, and arguing the government's case before the U.S. Supreme Court. Invoking the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890, Knox argued that The Northern Securities Company acted in restraint of trade. The court's decision, on a 5-4 vote with Oliver Wendell Holmes and Chief Justice Melville Fuller dissenting, upheld the government's argument, affirming the constitutionality of the Sherman Antitrust Act.

        [Manuscrits autographes en très grande partie inédits] Poésies : "Le Coeur et les yeux"

      Manuscrit. Bon. En Feuilles. A) Imposant ensemble d'environ 350 pp. in-4, classées par Pichon dans 5 recueils ("Le Chemin qui monte", "Les jours les journées", etc.) et plusieurs sous-recueils et précédées d'un "projet pour la constitution des volumes" où il est précisé que "Le Coeur et les yeux" est "le titre global de toutes les poésies". On joint 9 pp. in-4 de poèmes de la main de Hélène Pichon (l'un signé). B) 3 cahiers in-8 contenant 100 pp. de poèmes autographes datés de 1904 à 1939, pour la plupart recopiés dans le recueil présenté en (A). C) 2 ff. découpés de "L'Anthologie des jeunes poètes" (Paris, d'Artray, 1926) où l'on trouve 3 poèmes de Pichon. On notera que certains poèmes portent des noms de dédicataires aussi variés que Colette, Rudolph Loewenstein ou Louis-Ferdinand Céline. Nous n'allons pas prétendre que la poésie de Pichon a une grande valeur littéraire, mais le soin avec lequel il l'a mise en ordre montre l'importance sentimentale qu'elle avait pour lui. Elle est un intéressant reflet de l'homme qu'il fut et est particulièrement touchante quand il y évoque la maladie (il souffrait d'un rhumatisme articulaire aigu) et la souffrance qu'elle engendre. De rares poèmes son signés. Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours..

        ERDGLOBUS FÜR DEN WELTVERKEHR im Verhältniss 1:16'500'00- Entworfen von Heinrich Kiepert (1818-1899). Mit Korrectionen und Nachträgen. Farblith. Kartenbild, mit Höhendarstellung in brauner Schummerung; Meeresströmungen, Treibeisgrenzen; die für den Weltverkehr wichtigen Eisenbahn- und Dampfschifflinien; Telegrafen- und Kabellinien; Kohlenstationen für Dampfer; überseeische Hafenplätze mit Reparaturvorrichtungen etc. Diameter 80cm; Gesamthöhe (inkl. Sockel) 145cm. Montiert auf massivem dreifüssigem Holzgestell mit eingebautem Kompass im Fusssockel und montiertem, aufklappbarem Breitengradmesser aus Holz.

      Berlin, Dietrich Reimer (Ernst Vohsen) 1904. - Der grösste je im Verlag von Dietrich Reimer erschienene Erdglobus. - Dieser sehr grosse Globus stellt eine der bedeutenden Entwicklungen in der Globenproduktion dar. Das physisch-geographische Kartenbild ist mit brauner Höhenschummerung versehen. Die überregional wichtigen Eisenbahnlinien, das überseeische Kabelnetz, Dampferrouten mit Entfernungsangaben, Meeresströmungen und Treibeisgrenzen für die Schifffahrt sind auf dem Globus markiert. Im Bereich der Antarktis finden sich Hinweise auf Forschungsreisen. - Der Reimer-Verlag entsprach mit diesem erstmals 1896 veröffentlichten "Erdglobus für den Weltverkehr" dem allgemeinen Interesse der Öffentlichkeit an Welthandel und Weltverkehr im ausgehenden 19. und zu Beginn des 20. Jhs. Je nach Ausstattung kostete der Globus zwischen 100 bis 340 Reichsmark (vgl. Muris/Saarmann). Der erste Erdglobus mit 80cm Durchmesser wurde vom Reimer-Verlag zuerst 1886 ausgeliefert, Kieperts erster Entwurf dafür geht aber auf das Jahr 1859 zurück. Andere Verlage folgten erst weit nach 1900 mit eigenen Weltverkehrsgloben. Ein Exemplar des vorliegenden "Erdglobus für den Weltverkehr" findet sich (datiert "um 1905") im Institut für geographische Wissenschaften der Freien Universität Berlin; die grosse Globensammlung der Oesterreichischen Nationalbibliothek weist kein Exemplar dieses aufschlussreichen Globus auf. - Die Metallkugel mit 1 Delle (26 x 9cm), 1 Fehlstelle (ca. 12 x 12cm) im Bereich Südafrika handschr. ergänzt, 1 Einriss (20cm) mit 2 kleinen Fehlstellen (je 8mm), 4 weitere kleinere Einrisse, diese fachmännisch geklebt. Stellenweise leicht berieben und minimal fleckig. - Bibliographie: L. Zögner "Antike Welten. Neue Regionen".

        Cartolina postale autografa, viaggata, del musicista Giacomo Puccini inviata da Capalbio al corrispondente Cesare Riccioni in data 18 dicembre 1904.

      Cartolina postale "Giuseppe Guelfi" in formato cm.9x13,8, con una veduta del centro di Capalbio da Sud - Ovest. Al recto, con bella firma autografa "Saluti, G. Puccini". Al verso francobollo e doppio timbro postale, e l'indirizzo del destinatario vergato di pugno del Maestro. Eccellenti condizioni di conservazione Il 1904 fu, per Puccini, l'anno di "Madama Butterfly", contrassegnato dal profondo scoramento per l'esito infausto della "prima" scaligera del 17 febbraio, e abbondantemente mitigato dal travolgente successo della ripresa bresciana del 28 maggio. Dopo quella data Puccini trascorse le vacanze estive a Boscolungo e a Montecatini, fu poi a Londra, a Parigi, a Genova e a Roma, e a ridosso del periodo natalizio trascorse una settimana di riposo nella quiete della ridente Capalbio

Omslag met plakbandstrepen, vage naam op titel, maar een goed exemplaar (professioneel restauratierapport bijgevoegd).* Een mythisch boek uit de moderne Nederlandse letterkunde! Deze eerste druk van Pijpelijntjes, verschenen in juni 1904, is een van de zeer weinige exemplaren met het complete originele omslag, zelfs inclusief de rug.De arts-schrijver A. Aletrino, aan wie deze openlijk homo-erotische roman in druk werd opgedragen, herkende zichzelf in een van de twee hoofdpersonen van het boek ('Sam', Aletrino's bijnaam). Hij kocht samen met Johanna van Maarseveen de voorraad op en vernietigde deze. Slechts enkele exemplaren ontsprongen de dans. In oktober 1904 verscheen een tweede, herschreven druk. De eerste druk van Pijpelijntjes wordt tegenwoordig beschouwd als een van de zeldzaamste boeken uit de Nederlandse literatuur. Volgens de NCC alleen in de Universiteitsbibliotheken van Leiden en Amsterdam.
