        History of the Delhi Coronation Durbar.

      London: John Murray,, 1904. Held of the first of January 1903 to Celebrate the Coronation of His Majesty Edward VII, Emperor of India. Compiled from Official Papers by Order of the Viceroy and Governor-General of India. Folio. Original japon vellum, spine lettered and panelled in gilt, boards concentrically gilt-ruled with interstitial floral devices gilt, central onlays of red enamel lozenges in the Islamic style, containing gilt arms of the British monarchy gilt to the front, and "King Edward VII, 1901" in Arabic letters to rear, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, white moiré cloth endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece with tissue-guard, 29 similar plates, 18 half-tone photographic plates, engraved plate of the Delhi Durbar medal, double-page folding photogravure panorama, 2 plans of which one folding, the other in partial colour, folding colour map. Vellum faintly soiled in places, front inner hinge very slightly tender, photogravure plates evenly browned, a few with mild spotting to margins, the images remaining crisp, marginal soiling to half-tone plate facing p. 202, final folding map slightly marked along fore edge. A very good copy. First edition, deluxe issue, one of 250 copies printed on handmade paper and bound in full japon vellum gilt, this copy unnumbered; a suitably monumental publication to commemorate the event which marked the high noon of the Empire and of Lord Curzon's career as its leading ceremonial impresario. Wheeler is best remembered as Rudyard Kipling's editor on the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, where Kipling worked as a sub-editor from 1882 to 1887, during which time he published his first book, Departmental Ditties, in 1886; his father, J. Talboys Wheeler, had written the official account of Lytton's 1877 Durbar. The trade issue of the History, bound in red cloth, is far more commonly met with than this splendid deluxe issue, in which the subscribers list records 114 names, the majority of them Indian potentates, indicating that a large proportion of the print run will have been dispersed in the inhospitable conditions of the subcontinent.

        The Holy Office.

      [Pola:, late 1904 or early 1905]. Broadside printed on white wove paper, watermark of a spread eagle, 96 lines in two columns signed in type "James A. Joyce" at the bottom of the second column. Light vertical and horizontal creasing, a couple of spots of light foxing. In excellent condition. First printing. Together with a copy of a letter to Joyce from Thomas Koehler (sometimes Keller) of Dublin – a friend from his Dublin years – telling Joyce that he still has in his possession "a copy of The Holy Office put into my letter box long ago". Koehler adopted the spelling Keller at some point in his life although his family persisted in the original spelling after his death. He had met Joyce in the years preceding his departure for Europe in 1904. The two had become close friends and when Joyce had the Holy Office distributed he specifically directed that copies be given to Keller. Stanislaus reports this copy to be the first one he delivered. The publication date of this printing is not clearly established and the pencil date on this copy is mentioned by Slocum in the bibliography. Slocum notes that an earlier edition was reputed to have been printed in Dublin in the summer of 1904, though none are known to have survived. When the printer asked Joyce to pay for and collect the broadsheets he did not have the funds that month to do so. After receiving an "insolent" letter from the printers, Joyce later had it printed in Pola at his own expense. "Since no copies of the Dublin printing... seem to have survived, the Pola printing may be considered the first edition". Keller became manager of the printing firm Hely's where Leopold Bloom would once have worked.

        On the conversion of electric oscillations into continuous currents by means of a vacuum valve. By J.A.Fleming, ... Received January 24,-Read February 9, 1905 (pp.476-487, 4 Abb.).

      Proc. roy. Soc., 74 (1904/1905). - London, Harrison and Sons, April 1905, 8, IX, (1), 580 pp., zahlr. Abb., 14 Tafeln, orignal Leinenband der Zeit ExLibris, zarter Stempel auf Titel feines Exemplar. Erstdruck des ersten Berichts über die von Sir John Ambrose Flemming (1849-1845) entwickelte Elektronenröhre. Bei seinen Untersuchungen des Edisoneffekts hatte er entdeckt, daß dieser nicht nur beim Anlegen einer positiven Spannung an die Metallplatte, sondern auch bei der Einwirkung von drahtlosen Wellen auf sie entstand. Er schuf damit nicht nur die Grundlage für die Rundfunktechnik, sondern leitete gleichzeitig das Zeitalter der Elektronik ein, das unsere Welt nachhaltig veränderte. - Im vollständigen Band der "Proceedings", enthält von Fleming noch "On an instrument for the measurement of the length of long electric waves" (pp.488-498, mit 5 Abb.).First edition. In November 1904, Fleming invented the two-electrode vacuum-tube rectifier, which he called the oscillation valve - the device that gave birth to modern electronics. "This was the first electron tube, the diode, ancestor of the triode and the other multielectronic tubes which have played such an important role in both telecommunications and scientific instrumentation".

        La Loie Fuller

      1904. ROCHE, Pierre. La Loie Fuller. Text by Roger Marx. 26 pp. With 17 colour relief engravings by Pierre Roche. Small folio, 265 x 200 mm, bound loose as issued in the original illustrated embossed wrappers and cardboard chemise. Preserved in an elaborate carved wooden slipcase. Evreux: Charles Hérissey, 1904. |~||~||~||~| One of the rarest and most beautiful books of the Fin de Siecle. Marx's La Loie Fuller is also one of the most curious books from the Art Nouveau period. Using a reproductive process unseen in book production, the illustrator Pierre Roche captured the fluid movement of Loie Fuller's robes swishing through the air via his new process of 'coloured relief engravings.' This is number 48 of an edition of 130 copies. Loie Fuller (1862-1928), a burlesque dancer whose fame rested on her renowned "skirt dance," developed a unique form of choreography which emphasized the human body as transformed by artful manipulation of her silk dress, especially under coloured gas lighting. By 1892 Fuller was in Paris and performing with the Folies Bergeres. She was an immediate sensation with audiences and critics. Stephane Mallarme, the leading poet of the Symbolist movement, dubbed her "La Loie." One reviewer described the effect as "unique, ethereal, delicious... she emerges from darkness, her airy evolutions now tinted blue and purple and crimson, and again the audience... insists upon seeing her pretty piquant face before they can believe that the lovely apparition is really a woman." Pierre Roche (1855 -1922), French sculptor, made his first relief prints using a plaster mold, then adding colours to each print with a brush. He called these new forms of monotypes "Printed Watercolours." His first subjects ranged from natural history images to portraits. Subsequently, Roche developed what he called "gypsography," a graphic process that used a metallic mold in place of his original plaster molds, which proved too fragile for repeated printings. Added to the overall attractiveness of the book is Auriol's italic type, which was used here for the first time. Some light scattered foxing, still a very nice copy. The book is rare in any condition, but especially so in the original wrappers and box. Carteret IV, p. 345.

        Judith of Bethulia

      Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1904. Fine/Very Good. First edition. Fine in a very good example of the very uncommon printed, French-folded dustwrapper with some chipping and loss to the portion of the jacket that folds over the top and bottom page edges. An epic dramatic poem that was the basis for two films, most importantly D.W. Griffith's 1914 version, which was his first feature length film, the first of his "epics," and the film that laid the groundwork for his future spectaculars. The budget shocked the Biograph film company, and Griffith was soon let go, to the eventual benefit of all of filmdom. Exceptionally uncommon in jacket.

Original dark green cloth, titles and vignettes to spine and front cover gilt, top edge gilt. 2 colour plates of giraffes, approximately 200 half-tone photographs to the text, many full-page, 2 folding maps. Foxing to edges and prelims, maps spotted and offset, the very occasional spot to text. A very good copy. First edition, scarce variant binding, other copies noted in blue cloth with the front cover lettered and decorated in black rather than gilt. Following a successful hunting trip in Abyssinia, Powell-Cotton (1866-1940) travelled to British East Africa in 1902 in order to find a specimen of a five-horned giraffe recently discovered by Sir Harry Johnston. He pursued impala, rhinoceros and lion on the Athi River, crossed the Tana and lived among the Kikuyu, successfully hunting elephant, then collecting trophy kudu and lion on the Baringo plain. He eventually found a five-horned giraffe on the outskirts of Masai territory. Reviewing the work in the Geographical Journal, Harry Johnston praised its descriptions and photographs of big game as well noting that "from a geographical point of view also Major Powell-Cotton's journey is a remarkable one. He covered a little new ground north of the explorations made by Macdonald and Austin, and south and west of the journeys of Wellby and Donaldson-Smith".

Elephant Folio - over 15" to 23" tall. Archer M[ilton] Huntington (1870-1955) was a lifelong friend of the arts and philanthropist; known for his scholarly works in the field of Hispanic Studies, he founded The Hispanic Society of America in New York City; his cousin, Henry E. Huntington, founded the renowned Huntington Library in California. This volume was presented by the author in 1923 to Elijah Clarence Hills (1867-1932), a Professor in Florida and Colorado and a prolific author of Spanish-related books. The inscription is on Mr. Huntington's calling card, with "Mr." being crossed out, as follows: "To my friend E.C. Hills / with the high regard & / admiration of (printed name, Archer Huntington) / 1923".The calling card is tipped onto the front pastedown directly beneath Mr. Hills' elegant bookplate. This work was published to preserve the illuminated decorations and initials from the 9th through 11th centuries from manuscripts in the monastery of Silos, near Castile, which over many centuries and the ravages of many wars were at risk of being forever lost. As Mr. Huntington says in the Introduction:"The rarity alone of documents dating, as these do, from the ninth to the eleventh century renders them of the greatest interest; but where, in addition, such remarkable palaeographical and archaeological details are found, and such peculiarity in the application of design to the decoration of books, they become worthy of extended study and fit subjects for reproduction".***DESCRIPTION: Bound in tan cloth with the front board richly decorated as an illuminated manuscript in rust and green, letters outlined in black, green lettering on the spine, top edge gilt, plain endpapers, bookplate and author's inscription tipped onto front pastedown as referred to above, title page with two decorative initial capitals, volume opens with a four-page Introduction by Mr. Huntington, followed by a 3-page list of the Manuscripts used, followed by the illustrations which are printed on the recto only of each page with their number on the opposite page, printed on verso only, two tissue guards (we presume original with the rest having been lost); Elephant Folio in size (approximately 17" tall), unpaginated with approximately 100 leaves; limited edition of 350 copies, unnumbered, author's inscription as set forth above.***CONDITION: Overall very good plus, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, the interior is clean and bright, and other than the prior owner bookplate and authorial inscription, it is entirely free of prior owner markings.

        Die Körperschönheit des Weibes. Bde. 1-4 (von 5).Plüschow, Otto Schmidt und A. Schneider

      MEYER, Bruno et al.: Die Körperschönheit des Weibes. Bde. 1-4 (von 5). Mit 80 unter floral gemustertem Seidenpapier auf schwarzem Büttenkarton montierten, farbig getönten Autotypien nach Fotos von René le Bègue, C. de Clugny, H. Hildebrand, H. L. von Jan, A. Lemoine, G[unther]. Plüschow, Otto Schmidt und A. Schneider. Stuttgart: Klemm und Beckmann 1904. Reich illustriertes und aufwändig im Jugendstil gestaltetes Werk über die (weibliche) Nacktheit zwischen Kunst (v.a. Fotografie), Medizin und Kunsttheorie sowie von den Ideen der Lebensreformer geprägten Diskursen zu Begriffen wie "Anstößigkeit" und "Sittlichkeit". Die in guter Qualität mittels Netzätzung gedruckten Fotovorlagen wirken oft kitschig gestellt, sind aber mitunter auch von natürlicher Anmut. Die mit schmucken Zierrahmen im Jugendstil sauber auf Büttenpapier gesetzten und gedruckten Texte stammen vom Maler Eduard Daelen, dem Physiologen Gustav Fritsch, dem Kunsthistoriker Bruno Meyer und von Konrad Wahr. Einbände stellenweise etwas berieben (insbesondere die Fotoportraits), an den Kapitale, Ecken und Kanten teils bestoßen und mit kleinen Einrissen, Hinterdeckel von Bd. 4 mit kleiner Fehlstelle, Vordergelenk von Bd. 1 gebrochen, sonst gut erhaltener Satz dieser bibliophilen Ausgabe, in der vorliegenden Leinen-Ausstattung in jedem Zustand und auch nicht vollständig selten angeboten.

        Zemskaia kampaniia i plan "Iskry" [The zemstvo campaign and the plan of "Iskra"].

      Geneva, Izdatel'stvo sotsial'demokraticheskoi partiinoi literatury v. Bonch-Bruevicha i N. lenina; Kooperativnaia tipografiia, 1904. - Small 8vo. 26, (2) pp. Original staple-stitched self-wrappers. Printed on thin onion-skin paper. First and only edition of Lenin's witty denunciation of the so-called "zemstvo campaign" advanced by the Geneva-based Menshevik journal "Iskra" ("The Spark"). In a letter dated November 1904, the editors presented a plan for influencing the non-revolutionary "bourgeois opposition" in Russia by disseminating the demands of the Social Democrats through local zemstvos and discussion among the intelligentsia: thus, they hoped to stimulate liberal politicians to vote according to social-democratic views. In response, Lenin fiercely ridiculed the Mensheviks' ignorance of the disadvantages of liberal democracy, as well as the impracticality of tasking local zemstvos with influencing politicians. - Front wrapper bears the printed note "Only for party members"; this, as is revealed on p. 26, is a pun on the fact that Iskra's zemstvo plan, which was meant to be democratically disseminated across Russia, was issued with a similar conspiratorial disclaimer, a fact which Lenin found ridiculous. - Item 747 in the Bernstein and Souvarine catalog, which notes that the pamphlet was distributed illegally among local party offices in Russia and "played an important role in building up the Bolshevik iron discipline" and in convincing the Socialists that "pressure must be applied to the government, not liberals" (p. 126). - Light wear and spotting; corners somewhat creased; tiny nick to front wrapper.

        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.

        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).
