        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire Année complète 1904 EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Bureaux de la Revue, 1904. Fine. Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1904, 11,5x18,5cm, 4 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding editor to bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, gilt small iron and double gold in net queue.Douze numbers from January to December 1904. conservées.Chaque number Covers Edition is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Ghéon Henri Paul Gauguin ("Letter"), Francis Jammes, Walt Whitman, René Boylesve, André Gide ("The evolution of theater, conference", "De Biskra to Touggourth" "The importance of the public", "The quarrel of the poplar"), Rémy de Gourmont ("Footprints in the Sand"), etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine owned the first wave of small magazines Symbolists. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular contributors, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), the Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. The Hermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time as the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] which deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his state of mind symbolist, employees are more interested in poetry than novel. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, says that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddles the fin de siècle aestheticism and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1904. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Henri Ghéon, Paul Gauguin ("Lettre"), Francis Jammes, Walt Whitman, René Boylesve, André Gide ("De l'évolution du théâtre, conférence", "De Biskra à Touggourth", "De l'importance du public", "La querelle du peuplier"), Rémy de Gourmont ("Des pas sur le sable"), etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

        Two Years Before The Mast

      1904. first edition. Two Years Before The Mast Illustrated by Arthur Rackham[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. DANA, R[ichard] H[enry]. Two Years Before The Mast. London and Glasgow: Collins' Clear-Type Press, [September, 1904]. First edition, first issue. Octavo (7 1/8 x 4 3/4 inches; 181 x 121 mm.). 304 pp. Title-page printed in black without any mention of Arthur Rackham. Eight color plates (all with page numbers in lower right-hand corner).Original red cloth, front cover pictorially stamped with a representation of a whaling ship, with the name SCUD plainly visible on the bows. The ship has three men standing in the bow waiting for a canoe with two Indians, allin dark blue, black and white. The title is in dark blue with white shadows. The spine has a picture of an Indian in blue and white, and the title is in a gold panel with the author's name in full in dark blue below. Some light pencil lining and light marginal foxing throughout, neat repair to inner margin of color-plate facing page 33, otherwise a near fine copy of this rather scarce little book.Latimore and Haskell, page 23. Riall, page 57. Note: There are several bindings of this book. The one at hand seems to combine characteristics from several issues described by Latimore and Haskell. Riall mentions an earlier September 1904 issue, bound in green or pink cloth. The illustrations in the September issue have the number of the page they illustrate in the lower right-hand corner, while there are no page numbers on the plates of the December issue. Later editions have only the name "R.H. Dana" on the spine.This book has always been a bibliographic puzzle, but we are certain that this is one of the earliest printings from September 1904.We have sold (more than thirty years ago) a December 1904 copy with the "Scud" picture on the front cover and with the authors name in full on the spine BUT the title-page was printed in red and black and none of the plates had the page number in the lower right hand corner. This copy had a school prize label dated December 1904.Included is a copy of a book by Captain Mayne Reid entitled The Scalp Hunters: A Romance of Northern Mexico. London and Glasgow: Collins' Clear-Type Press, [n.d.] but ca. 1904. This book is bound in the same red cloth and has the identical design to Two Years Before the Mast on the front cover and the spine.

Contains three bookplates, several clippings about Harlem tipped-in, a legal judgment for a property in Harlem, two advertisements for this book from the author (one corrected by hand, presumably by the author) and of most interest, a Printed Letter Signed by the dedicatee of the book, Edgar Ketchum to John Townsend (one of the three bookplates), introducing Townsend to his friend Riker in 1877, and soliciting him to subscribe to the book. Ketchum was a prominent attorney and abolitionist, from Harlem. Those resentful of his abolitionist stance attempted to burn his house during the Draft Riots. Townsend was most likely John P. Townsend, a civilly prominent New York financier who also wrote on economics. Howes R297. .

        [Photo Album]: Teen-age Girls Attending the "Queen's School" in Bangkok, 1968 [hand-titled]: "Happiness is Together with All Friends"

      Small quarto. Plasticized white paper over flexible boards. 111 black and white photographs. Most are about 2.5" x 3.5", a few larger. Slight soiling to the boards, images are mostly fine, many with ink signatures, but for the most part not obscuring the images. Dated from the inscriptions (in Thai). Each photograph is a portrait of a young girl or group of young girls, apparently prepared as a friendship album for one of the students. After the handwritten title page ("Happiness is Together with All Friends") is a drawing of an orchid, and the single word "Farewell," perhaps this was prepared as a going away album for the lone western (possibly American) girl pictured in the album. The girls, in school uniforms, miniskirts, bathing suits, and other typical late 1960s fashion, are almost all are in Western style clothing. The students are depicted engaging in a variety of activities, playing basketball, baseball, posing with a Jaguar XKE, with pets, with a guitar, on the beach, with a bicycle taxi, etc. Also laid in is a New Year's card, most of the text handwritten in Thai. A nice period vernacular album of adolescent girls engaged in a wide range of activities. The Thai inscriptions in the album indicates that this album depicts girls from the Queen's School. Queen Saovabha Phongsri took a particular interest in the education of women, and in 1904 established the first school for girls in Siam; the "Rajini School" or Queen's School in Bangkok. .

        A Selection from the Collection of Drawings by the Old Masters formed by C. Fairfax Murray.

      London: Privately Printed 1904 - First edition, 4to, 28pp., 292 plates, black and white and sepia-tone, from paintings, etc., executed by MM. Braun, Clement & Co, Paris and Dornach, marbled endpapers, cont. half morocco, t.e.g. uncut, lightly rubbed otherwise a very nice copy. Approximately 150 artists are represented from the schools of Giotto, Pollajuolo, Florentine 15th Century, Perugino, Lombard School 15th Century, Parmigiano, North Italian, Venetian School 18th Century, Rembrandt, the Dutch School, Flemish School, Early German, etc. Charles Fairfax Murray is believed to have received early art training from Richard Gainsborough Dupont, became a protege of John Ruskin, and joined Edward Burne-Jones as a studio assistant. Soon he was also assisting William Morris and Rosetti. While in Italy, as an agent for the Director of the National Gallery and other private collectors, Murray built his own Italian Old Master collection. He returned to England and resumed his friendships with Burne-Jones, William Morris, and their circle in the Arts & Crafts Movement. He also developed great American art collections, described by Lockett Agnew as "the finest judge of art in the world." Later, in 1909, having bought and sold several lots of rare books and collections to museums and galleries, he made his major sale -- his personal collection of 1400 Old Master drawings, to American banker John Pierpont Morgan for a sum almost equivalent to 3,000,000 pounds today.

        The English student's journal.

      Seitosha 1904-1909, Tokyo - 22 issues, illustrations throughout, an incomplete set; edges worn, paper browning, some issues annotated, some bindings reinforced by staples, vocabulary lists and news supplement laid in to many issues. The English Student's Journal was published twice a month and dedicated to providing a "light, breezy, and chatty little paper" through which students of English could study. It offered short news items, witticisms, and curious facts, often with an imperialist and nationalistic bent. Of particular interest is its essay club section, in which readers were encouraged to submit short essays in return for prizes. In these essays we see glimpses of daily life among the educated Japanese, with illness, draft dodging, and the state of the economy finding representation often. Diet Library only in OCLC.
