        In the Supreme Court of the United States, October Term, 1903...

      1904. Souvenir of a Landmark Antitrust Case [Knox, Philander (1853-1921)]. [Northern Securities Co. v. United States]. In the Supreme Court of the United States, October Term, 1903. Northern Securities Company [et al.] v. United States of America, Appellee. Appeal for the Circuit Court of the United States for the District of Minnesota. Argument and Brief for the United States. [Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1904]. [iv], 94; [ii], ii, 180 pp. Two parts preceded by general title page. 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).

        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.

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.

        The Russo-Japanese War: Naval

      K. Ogawa / By Permission of the Naval Department. Hardcover. Tokyo, 1904. Oblong quarto, cloth, unpaginated. 11 pages of text in Japanese, 8 pp. text in English (lacks pages 5-6 of the English text). With 120 full page photographic plates and a folding map. A very scarce photographic history of the Russo-Japanese war, with striking photographs of the fighting at Port Arthur. Photographs are generally excellent, though there are child drawings to the versos of some of the plates. About ten plates showing marginal tears, one with a clear tape repair, but overall the photographs are in excellent condition free of foxing. The text portions are quite tattered, with various folds and marginal tears. This is the collected edition, OCLC 23762126. There is also an edition in four parts. We have graded it as good, despite the missing page of text and the drawings to the versos, due to the well preserved and complete state of the photographs and map. Extremely scarce, with OCLC locating six copies in multiple entries. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. . Good. 1904. First Edition.

        The Tale of Benjamin Bunny.

      London: Frederick Warne and Co. Ltd,, 1904. Sextodecimo. Original buff paper-covered boards, printed in dark green, illustration mounted on front board, illustrated endpapers. Frontispiece and 26 colour illustrations by Beatrix Potter. Boards slightly bowed, small abrasion to front board, spine cracked but holding, edges lightly spotted; a very good, bright copy. Inscribed by Beatrix Potter on the half-title, "With the compliments of Beatrix Potter". A later printing of Potter's introduction of Peter Rabbit's cousin Benjamin, the fourth of her books to be published. While Potter "was still working on the proofs and final drawings for The Tailor of Gloucester in the summer of 1903, the publishers asked her about another book. She responded to Norman Warne, 'I had been a little hoping too that something might be said about another book, but I did not know that I was the right person to make the suggestion!'" (Grinstein, 81). Potter intentionally shied away from what she regarded as the complexity of Tailor and Squirrel Nutkin when crafting this tale. She "prepared the text with great care, having tried it out on various children she knew" (Linder, 145). Her lovely backgrounds depict the garden at Fawe Park near Keswick, where she spent the summer of 1903. Ultimately, Benjamin Bunny - whose title character shared the name of Potter's own pet rabbit - "may be understood as an epilogue to The Tale of Peter Rabbit. In it, Potter undoes a number of the anxiety elements present in the first story as well as in some in the story of Squirrel Nutkin. In this way she brings about a satisfactory resolution of the two stories, almost as if she were now finishing them with a fairy tale ending" (Grinstein, 81-83).

A novella narrated by a physician who sailed off to the South Pacific and, after shipwreck and thirty years of isolation among primitive people on Borneo, is rescued by a passing ship and returns to America in 1940. He finds that all doctors have been unionized. (So have clergymen.) He is penniless and must join the union to make a living.

The union has triumphed. "Dystopia brought about by unionization of doctors. Anti- union tract." - Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516- 1985, p. 132. A fine copy.

Most of the fragile white spine lettering perished, cloth a bit. rubbed at edges, a clean, tight, very good copy of this handsome. book. A major genre rarity. (#149285). First edition. "A team of British archaeologists unearths the mummified remains of an Egyptian princess who was said to be possessed by a demon. Her body disappears during the night and, shortly thereafter, a woman as beautiful as any creature created by God or the devil appears to the workers and beckons to them to follow her into the night. Those who do so are never seen again. When, Deane, the leader of the expedition, ventures into the desert in search of one of the missing men, he becomes lost and is blinded by the sun. Miraculously, he finds his way back to camp. As he nears the excavation 'something' bites him on the shoulder and tries to drink his blood, but he fights it off. Deane and the remaining members of his party depart the next morning, leaving the desert to its secrets. One of the 50 top vampire novels." - Robert Eighteen-Bisang. Despite a somewhat incredulous ending, this vivid, well-written tale of a bloodsucking mummy is a classic of its kind. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s- 1930s 747. Reginald 14000.
