        DIE EINGEBUNGEN DES ARPHAXAT. MERKWÜRDIGE GESCHICHTEN. Mit Deckelzeichnung von Richard Teschner

      Minden i W.: J. C. C. Bruns' Verlag, 1904.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1] 2-295 [296: blank], original pictorial gray green boards, front panel printed in red, white and black, spine panel printed in black, top edge stained red, terra cotta endpapers. First edition. The author's second collection of short fiction and one of his scarcest books. Strobl, a product of the decaying Austro-Hungarian empire, became one of the key figures in the German fantastic literature of the early twentieth century, ranking just below Meyrink and Ewers, both as editor of the important magazine DER ORCHIDEENGARTEN, and as the author of his own weird tales, "where his most enduring work is perhaps to be found ... mingling laughter and horror ..." (Rottensteiner in Magill [ed], Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature, p. 2401). Bloch (2002) 3047. See Lexikon 1, pp. 250-2. Mild spine lean, a nearly fine copy. An exceptionally nice copy of this book. (#136462)

Schaldach (1896-1982) was 18 and a high school student in Grand Rapids, Michigan, when this copy was inscribed. "His interests were fishing, hunting and art". Ordeman notes this "well-worn copy" in his monograph, and further observes: "Some of Mr. Schaldach's writings, in Coverts and Casts and Paths to Enlightenment in particular suggest an influence of Upland Game Birds upon the author." A choice association item marking the start of a great career. Phillips p. 330; Ordeman, William J. Schaldach, pp. 15-16, describing this copy

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Stefan Zweig"). Wien, 3. III. 1904.

      1 S. 8vo. An den Wiener Verleger Fritz Freund (1879-1950): "Lieber Herr Freund, ich war heute bei Ihnen vergeblich in Audienz, um die Lem[onnier]-Novelle zu übergeben und Sie nochmals zu warnen einen Übersetzernamen auf's Titelblatt zu setzen. Haben Sie es nötig, dass ein Herr Fischl in Wien herumgeht und sich 'Autor des Wiener Verlag's' nennt. Nein, das haben Sie nicht nötig [...]". - Zweig und sein Freund Émile Verhaeren setzten sich Anfang 1904 für das Werk Camille Lemonniers ein, dessen "Homme en amour" soeben in ganz Deutschland verboten worden war. Zu Zweigs in dieser Sache unternommenen Aktivitäten zählt die Übersetzung einiger Erzählungen aus Lemonniers "Poupées d'amour" für den "Wiener Verlag", der spätestens seit seiner ersten öffentlichen Auflage von Schnitzlers "Reigen" im Vorjahr als pornographisch verschrieen war (1906 sollte er "Josefine Mutzenbacher" herausbringen). Aus Zeitnot - er arbeitete parallel an seiner Dissertation - übertrug Zweig nur drei der ursprünglich 22 Erzählungen der französischen Originalausgabe, nämlich "La Maison de verre" ("Das gläserne Haus"), "Le Père" ("Der Vater") und "Petits vieux" ("Alte Leutchen"); fünf weitere übersetzte Friedrich Fischl (vgl. F. van de Kerckhove [Hg.], Émile Verhaeren, Correspondance générale I [1996], S. 24f. u. S. 127). Die acht Erzählungen erschienen 1904 unter dem Titel "Liebespuppen" als Nr. 26 der "Bibliothek berühmter Autoren". Besorgt um seinen Ruf als angehender Lyriker wünschte Zweig indessen nicht als Übersetzer genannt und schon gar nicht mit dem "Wiener Verlag" in Verbindung gebracht zu werden, was er gegenüber Freund geschickt hinter einer anscheinend gemeinsamen Abneigung gegen Fischl versteckt, welcher der Verbindung mit dem Verlag nicht würdig sei.

        BORN AGAIN: A NOVEL

      New York, Philadelphia: Wox, Conrad Company Publishers, [1904].. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-7 [8] 9-287 [288: blank], inserted frontispiece with photographic portrait of the author, original red cloth, front and spine panels stamped in white. First edition. This is the correct first printing. A later printing has a different frontispiece illustration and drops "Philadelphia" from the imprint on the title page. "One of the more eccentric of American fantasy novels. The bellicose hero, en route from Sydney to London, is pitched overboard in mid-Pacific by his exasperated shipmates, only to find land a few feet below the surface of the water. This leads him into an underground chamber where a huge diorama displays mysterious scenes from a lost continent, Sageland. On kissing the image of one of the women, the barefoot, seven-foot tall female comes to life. She is the last member of a utopian community that was extinguished 4000 years earlier." - Robert Eldridge. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1286. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 132. Reginald 08733. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 L-116. The fragile white stamping has perished from the faded spine panel but is almost entirely intact on the front panel; a very good copy of a rare and interesting book. (#148867)

        The Second Danish Pamir-Expedition. Old and New Architecture in Khiva, Bokhara and Turkestan. Published at the Expense of the Church Ministry and Carlsberg Fund.

      Copenhagen: Gyldendalske Boghandel Nordisk Forlag, 1904 - Folio. Original sand buckram, title in brown to front board spine. Just a little rubbed, front free endpaper slightly browned, the text pages more lightly so, overall a very good copy. 26 half-tone plates from photographs. First edition of this important architectural study from the two Danish Pamir Expeditions. Olufsen commanded both of these trips into Central Asia, 1896–9, during which the team visited Bokhara as a guest of the Emir; carried out exhaustive scientific surveys throughout the Pamirs; made the first anthropological study of the Siaposh and the mountain Tajiks; and "scaled peaks as high as 8,000 metres and living with the Kyrgyz nomads" (Howgego). Olufsen's was to be the last non-Russian scientific expedition in the region for 90 years. On the second trip the party was "provided with a camera and 2,000 glass plates" (Gorshenina, Explorateurs en Asie centrale: voyageurs et aventuriers de Marco Polo à Ella Maillart, p. 224), making this remarkable visual record possible. Howgego, IV, O7; Yakushi O32. [Attributes: First Edition]

        BORN AGAIN: A NOVEL

      New York, Philadelphia: Wox, Conrad Company Publishers, [1904].. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-7 [8] 9-287 [288: blank], inserted frontispiece with photographic portrait of the author, original red cloth, front and spine panels stamped in white. First edition. This is the correct first printing. A later printing has a different frontispiece illustration and drops "Philadelphia" from the imprint on the title page. "One of the more eccentric of American fantasy novels. The bellicose hero, en route from Sydney to London, is pitched overboard in mid-Pacific by his exasperated shipmates, only to find land a few feet below the surface of the water. This leads him into an underground chamber where a huge diorama displays mysterious scenes from a lost continent, Sageland. On kissing the image of one of the women, the barefoot, seven-foot tall female comes to life. She is the last member of a utopian community that was extinguished 4000 years earlier." - Robert Eldridge. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1286. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 132. Reginald 08733. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 L-116. The fragile white stamping has perished from the faded spine panel but is almost entirely intact on the front panel; a very good copy of a rare and interesting book. (#148867)

Printed for Charles Meunier. Set in mint condition. Pierre Félix Louis (1870-1925), also known as Pierre Louÿs, was a French poet and author. His pen names were Pierre Louis, Chrysis, Peter Lewys and Pibrac. He founded a literary review, La Conque in 1891, where works not only by Parnassian and symbolist literary role models were published, such as Mallarmé, Moréas, Leconte de Lisle or Verlaine, but also writings by young and still unknown poets such as Valéry, André Gide and Louÿs himself. His first, small collection of poems, Astarté, appeared in 1891 in l’Art indépendent, followed by "Chrysis ou la cérémonie matinale" in 1893; Poésies de Méléagre, translated in 1893, "Lêda ou la louange des bienheureux ténèbres" in 1893, "La maison sur le Nil ou les Apparences de la Vertu" in 1894, "Scènes de la vie des courtisanes de Lucien de Samosate", translated in 1894, and the same year "Les Chansons de Bilitis" which was his best-known work and a literary hoax.
