        SAND-BURIED RUINS OF KHOTAN. Personal Narrative of a Journey of Archaeological & Geographical Exploration in Chinese Turkestan

      London Hurst and Blackett 1904 - Early printing. With a large folding map and 135 illustrations. 8vo, original sienna polished cloth gilt lettered and pictorially decorated in black and yellow on the spine and decorated and lettered in black and yellow on the upper cover. xv, 503. A fresh and desirable copy of this scarce and important work, pages 13-28 with either a chip or neat repair along the bottom margin not effecting the text in any way, head and tail of spine slightly rubbed and with a small chip. VERY SCARCE AND IMPORTANT WORK BY STEIN. In 1900-1901 Stein excavated several ruined sites in the Taklamakan Desert around Khotan, publishing his experiences in SAND-BURIED RUINS OF KHOTAN. This would be the first of two expeditions which would lead to his being awarded the Founder's Gold Medal by the Royal Geographic Society. The rare account of Stein’s first great Central Asian expedition. Stein followed in the footsteps of Sven Hedin, who in 1893 had found unexplored ruins at the oasis of Khotan, along the southern edge of the great Taklamakan desert in Chinese Turkestan. Hedin was unable to undertake any systematic examination of the site,but Stein convinced the Indian Government under Lord Curzon to supply and fund his archaeological and geographical expedition in 1900-01. Stein’s excavations became the first scientific survey of the spread of Buddhism out of India and into greater Asia. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Gyldendalske Boghandel, Copenhagen 1904 - 8vo, pp. 379. Contemporary threequarter marbled cloth boards, leather ribbed spine and corners, spine and device on front panel tooled in gilt. Original wrappers, unevenly browned, bound in. List of Bang's previous works to rear wrapper. Small owner's label to front pastedown. A beautifully preserved copy in a contemporary binding. First edition of Denmark's first gay novel, INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR ON HALF-TITLE IN YEAR OF PUBLICATION (in Danish): 'With thanks from your faithful Herman Bang. 6.4.1904. To Albert Jacobsen.' Text in Danish. The journalist, stage director and novelist Herman Bang (1857-1912) was and remains one of the major figures in Danish letters, and in his lifetime was known throughout Europe. Like his Norweigian counterpart, Henrik Ibsen, Bang saw art as a vehicle for social change. He was homosexual, and through his female characters played out many of his own sexual sufferings, a censor-defying trick which was also used by Tennessee Williams forty years later. Like Oscar Wilde in England, Bang was known to be gay; like Wilde he was villified for it. Though never prosecuted he was the subject of constant police attention, and was vilified by the gutter press. In 1906, a scandal erupted involving Bang and a rent boy. One paper was moved to write: 'An unclean puff like Herman Bang must be beaten down, because he is he worst of them all. Everything which is typical of these depravities and crimes we now watch rising from the depths of the swamp like poisonous gas bursting up into the air and the daylight, can be found in Herman Bang. His hoarse voice, his sunken eyes, the slump and mummy-like exhaustion of his body, speak of the progress of vice in his soul and his blood.' Mikael tells the story of an ageing artist and his obsession with his muse, the much younger Mikael. When Mikael falls in love with a countess who one day comes to sit for the Master, the rift between the two men causes the artist to sicken and die. The story can be read as an examination of the tensions between ordinary life and high artistic ideals, but Bang's known personal history made the subtext of the book glaringly obvious. One contemporary reviewer described the character of the Master as 'an undisguised homosexualist.' A critic later described Mikael as 'by far the most pronounced portrayal of another kind of love in Danish literature'. In 1924 the great Danish film director Carl Dreyer (Vampyr, The Passion of Joan of Arc) adapted Mikael for the screen, with Walter Slezak in the title role. Dreyer's adaptation follows the book closely, quietly retaining its homoerotic atmosphere. A lovely copy of a book whose survival rate has badly affected by the scandal it caused when published.

Condition : Edition originale française, traduction, notes et longue préface (de plus de cent pages) de Marcel Proust Un des exemplaires du tirage courant numérotés, n° 903 (après 7 ex. sur Hollande). Envoi autographe signé de Marcel Proust à Édouard Rod, écrivain et journaliste suisse (1857-1910) : " A Monsieur Edouard Rod. Hommage de respectueuse et profonde admiration. Marcel Proust ". Comme, en 1896, Edouard Rod avait publié une bonne critique des Plaisirs et les Jours dans Le Gaulois (cf. Correspondance, II, n° 36), Proust espéra une critique de sa traduction de La Bible d’Amiens. Le critique dut dire à Proust tout le bien qu’il en pensait, puisque, dans une lettre datée de mai 1904, Proust lui répond : «Si je n’étais dans un état de santé chaque jour empiré j’aurais été (.) vous remercier aussi d’avoir pris la peine de m’écrire à propos de mon étude sur Ruskin et de ma traduction de La Bible d’Amiens. Si jamais au cours d’un article vous aviez l’occasion de le signaler j’en serai très fier et très heureux.» Malgré cette supplique, il semble que Rod n’ait pas consacré de chronique dans le Figaro à la traduction de Proust. Très bel exemplaire. Deux petites éraflures sur le premier plat. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A Western Trip

      Herold Press, Detroit 1904 - A WESTERN TRIP TO YELLOWSTONE & MONTANA FEATURING PHOTOCHROMS BY WILLIAM HENRY JACKSON 8vo. 91 [1 blank], [2] pp., 30 mounted photographs (12 full-page photochrome process prints by William Henry Jackson, 18 smaller black and white taken by the party). Original full brown leather gilt-lettered and with gilt illustration of cowboy on rearing horse roping. With author's signed presentation in ink on front flyleaf: "C. L. Levants from Carl E. Schmidt, Jan'y 1905" (ink inscription offset onto the title). An impressive privately produced journal and memoir of a trip to Yellowstone in 1901 written by the wealthy Detroit industrialist Carl Schmidt. This book is an idiosyncratic example of bookmaking, not only because of its unusual illustrative matter, but also because of the author's selection of old English type and the binding created in the author's own tannery. The black and white photographs are candids taken by the party. The color photographs are the work of William Henry Jackson (1843-1942) who served as official photographer of the Hayden survey from 1870-1878 and took the first photos of Yellowstone Park. Leaving Chicago on August 31, 1901, in the company of three other people (his daughter Emma, friend Frank Pingree, and the latter's son Everett), Carl E. Schmidt embarked on a trip inspired by a painting of Yellowstone geysers he saw while waiting in a dining room for his omelet to be served. After describing his train trip West, which included a few humorous detours, Schmidt and his party spent several weeks in Yellowstone enjoying the sites and having various adventures and misadventures, most of which Schmidt describes in a jocular, even-handed manner. Some of the incidents seem to be reflective of the author's own amused awareness of his greenhorn-tourist status. At one point, a trip from the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel is preceded by Schmidt's elaborate order to the kitchen for lunch, which included an extra two-dollar bill to ensure service. However, when the lunch was opened the next day, it turned out to be nothing but ruined scraps. He also describes a somewhat successful fishing trip in which several trout were caught. However, upon arriving at the hotel and handing over the fish to the cook with instructions for preparation, the fish were ruined because they were fried in "wagon- grease butter." The journal concludes with a visit and descent into a mine near Butte, Montana. Schmidt remarks: "Here comes our party and with them the mine boss, Capt. Sammie. He looks like a highwayman, but we find out later he is a Baptist deacon and plays the organ up at the big camp tent" (p. 85). The trip to the mine also includes a recounting of a shoot-out that occurred a few months before their arrival. On the return trip to Chicago, the party stopped briefly in Salt Lake City. In Exploration and Empire Goetzmann describes the photographer William Henry Jackson's importance, "the greatest of all Western photographers [with the] ability to capture the many scenes of sublime beauty in the West on his photographic plates and stereopticon slides, did more than anyone else to publicize the tourist's West. Jackson, like the avant-garde writers, the scientists, and even the local colorists of his time, was helping to usher in a new era of realism that would in part replace, and at the same time, as far as subject matter was concerned, parallel the romanticism of an earlier day".

        An upright, downright, English Yeoman.

      1904 1904 - Original pen-and-ink watercolour illustration (404 × 288 mm), in a wash-line mount. Margins faintly marked, with chips to edges, image bright and clean, in very good condition. The original illustration, signed by the artist, for one of the character portraits in Mary Russell Mitford's "Our Village", which comprised a series of sketches of country life. Brock's illustrations form part of the "Series of English Idylls" published by J. M. Dent & Co. The figure depicted is a classic English archetype, Farmer Thorpe, "a stout, square, sturdy personage of fifty, or there-about, with a hard weather-beaten countenance, of that peculiar vermilion, all over alike, into which the action of the sun and wind sometimes tans a fair complexion; sharp, shrewd features, and a keen grey eye. He looks completely like a man who will neither cheat nor be cheated." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
