        Jean-Christophe [with ALS]

      Paris: Cahiers de la Quinzaine, 1904-1912. A complete set of the first printings of Rolland's work; 10 parts published across 17 volumes of Peguy's serial. This set is housed in four custom cloth slipcases, with chemises and gilt lettering to spines. Original wrappers (19 cm.), printed in red and black; three still preserved in original glassines. Chipping to rear cover of first volume; professional repairs to spines on nine volumes. Typical browning to pages, with some brittleness to the earlier volumes. Accompanied by autograph letter, signed by Rolland, and written for an unnamed correspondent; single sheet, folded (20 cm. tall), comprising 1.5 pages of text. Dated July 7, 1918 at Villeneuve, Switzerland. Written across an incredible landscape of time (1904-1912), Romain Rolland's Jean-Christophehis legendary biography of "Beethoven in the modern world" was eventually awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915, one year after the year in which no such award was awarded. It would come to be hailed as prophetic, not only of the Great War, but of its only possible transcendence, through the cultural harmony named Europe. The present set is remarkable insofar as it preserves the original shape of Rolland's work, which was published serially over nine years, across seventeen issues of Cahiers de la quinzainethe editorial platform of Charles Péguy. One of the most militant Dreyfusards, Péguy would himself greet the Great War far differently than his compatriot Rolland, who had choses self-exile in Switzerland. Instead, Péguy would embrace the purifying mystique of War, only to be greeted by a bullet-to-the-forehead on the very eve of the First Battle of the Marne. Rolland would eventually write Péguy's biography, as one of an historical series that included Beethoven, Michelangelo, and Tolstoy. In addition, this set preserves a remarkable letter from Rolland, written during that Swiss period, from the famed Hotel Byron. In it, Rolland confirms the opinion expressed by his un-named correspondent that "the symphonic" is the very essence of this work's composition; "non seulement pour le volume en question, mais pour l'ensemble de l'ouvrage et pour beaucoup de parties isolées."

        Scrapbook - Theatre programs, Restaurant menus, newspaper clippings, Paris Theatre scene. Feb 1902 - July 1904; Opera Programs; Dining Menus from Paris restaurants

      [1904], [Paris] 1904 - Two Albums. Oblong Quarto measuring 9 by 12 inches, green leather bound scrapbook with heavy cream leaves. First Album has gilt lettering stamped on cover: Album pour Collections. Both scrapbooks contain extensive clippings of opera and theatre performances in Paris during the 1902-1904 seasons . Miss Ethel Fiske travels with a female companion from the United States to Paris and resides in the city for 18 months. She is clearly a fan of the theatre as she has preserved many playbills and magazine clippings of shows and actresses. She has notated the dates of every performance she attended as well as many of the restaurants she dined in (she includes names or initials of her theatre and dinner companions). The newspaper clippings and theatre programs are in excellent condition, many have not yellowed. Also included are items from both her first class steamship crossings. Miss Ethel Fiske is not the famous American actress Mrs. Fiske although a clipping of Mrs. Fiske is included in the scrapbook. Her companion is confirmed as Frances Margaret Bradford Ames (later Mrs. Randall). Miss Fiske and Miss Ames traveled together to Paris and attend most of the theatre performances together; but Miss Fiske returns to Boston in the summer of 1904 without Miss Ames, according to the passenger list.

        [Photo Album]: Medford, Wisconsin, 1904-1905

      Near Fine. Oblong octavo. Cloth over flexible boards with photographic image of an oncoming train cut into the shape of a badge. Aside from the cover image the album holds 46 gelatin silver images; 42 of them are 4.5" x 3.75" mounted one to a page, each with a tissue guard, and with a detailed typed caption on the facing page. The final four are small 1.25" x 1.5" portraits of women mounted on a single page and captioned. Modest wear at the joints, a couple of images removed, probably by the compiler (no captions were present), and one leaf removed (the caption is still present), very good with near fine images.A very engaging album by a Medford High School student and an enlightened and intrepid amateur photographer. The compiler is often pictured but only captioned as "Myself", despite his scrupulously identifying everyone else in the album; the captions suggest that the images were taken in partnership with Gilbert Glasow, who is likewise identified in several images.The album begins in the Winter of 1904 and pictures the compiler and his fellow students building a two story shanty that they refer to as the "Science Building" and which they used apparently for experiments with electricity and telephones, including one image of the compiler talking on a phone, and another of various electrical apparatus created by Mr. Glasow.He also apparently worked part-time at the Wisconsin Central Railway station in Medford, and is pictured with the other personnel at the station. Additionally there are a few well-captioned images of moving trains: "W.C. Ry #102 southbound taken about one mile north of Medford station. Mr. Glasow stood in the center of the track to take this view and the engineer may be seen blowing the whistle for him to get off. I might add that he did not have any time to spare when he did get off." The young daredevils were not averse to danger, and the caption of another arresting picture, of the Winchester Hotel, notes that it was taken from the top of a telephone pole; another, of a quarry, is taken from atop a high stone crusher.The album has a pleasing array of subjects that include the town fire chief posing with his new steam fire engine ("his pet"); a large horse-drawn log sledge, the boys at a deer hunting camp outside of town, the boys on bicycles at a lake out of town, and a couple of images of the switchboards and apparatus, taken at an A.T.&T. office in Minneapolis, "taken by flashlight". Also shows the small Class of 1905 of Medford High School, horseback riding in and along a creek (where the compiler pays particular attention to the reflections off the water), and pictures of several important buildings in Medford.Medford is in central Wisconsin, roughly midway between Wausau and Eau Claire. The town grew up around the railway. Both the subjects and the quality of the images here represented are superior to most amateur albums of the time.

        Vincent van Gogh. 40 Photocollographies d'Après ses Tableaux et Dessins.

      Amsterdam Versluys 1904 - Portfolio, beige halflinnen, gedecoreerde platten, katoenen touw, compleet met 40 platen. fine condition . Allereerste uitgave met reproducties Van Gogh.!! Een zeer zeldzame boek Van Gogh 40 Photocollographies d?apres ses tableaux et dessins. Het is de eerste uitgave die verscheen over de kunstenaar. Het boek is uitgegeven door Versluys in Amsterdam rond 1904. Het boek is bijzonder omdat het verscheen voordat Van Gogh (1853 ? 1890) beroemd werd. De interesse in het werk van Van Gogh ontstond pas na zijn dood. De eerste tentoonstellingen in het buitenland vonden plaats in 1905 en 1906 in Berlijn, Hagen, Hamburg en Wenen. In Nederland was er een klein groepje kunstenaars dat interesse in Van Gogh had en in 1891 na zijn dood tentoonstellingen organiseerde. Een photocollographie wordt gemaakt met behulp van een gelatine plaat. Het is een traag drukproces waarbij 200 afdrukken wel een uur vergen. De techniek is geschikt voor kunstdrukken omdat schaduwpartijen goed worden weergegeven. Na 2000 afdrukken is de plaat versleten. 0 g.
