         Collection of Upton Sinclair correspondence and related material.

      1905-47. A collection of Upton Sinclair's correspondence (50 items), mainly with William McDevitt of San Francisco. Many items signed by Sinclair. McDevitt was a bookseller and author, involved in the socialist movement in the Bay Area (finding aid to the McDevitt papers, Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley). Mostly business correspondence, most of the letters are brief inquiries about the purchase and marketing of Sinclair's works. However, a number of the letters provide insight into Sinclair's and McDevitt's shared socialist ideology. A few of the letters, 1933-4, refer to Sinclair's unsuccessful run for governor of California on the Democratic ticket. Sinclair, however, ran on his "End Poverty in California" (EPIC) platform, basically a socialist program. Other writers referred to in the letters include Amborse Bierce, George Sterling, Jack London, and Tom Mooney. Of note are two letters from Edge Moor, Delaware (1910-11), when Sinclair was involved in the founding of Arden, Delaware, a community based on Henry George's concept of a single tax (see Delaware: A Guide to the First State (New York: The Viding Press, 1938), 167-75). Also included are an undated letter from McDevitt to "My Dear Students" and an invoice, dated August 25 1938, to McDevitt's book store. This collection also includes four of McDevitt's booklets: "When Coxey's Army Marcht on Washington," written with Carl Brown (1944); "Jack London' First" (1946); "Jack London as Poet and Platform Man" (1947); and "Ambrose Bierce on Richard Realf (1948). With advertising broadsides for Sinclair's books on sale at McDevitt's store, a lecture by McDevitt on "Rockefeller and Revolution," books on "the social question," and a debate on Prohibition. Some items chipped at edges. Booklets lightly tanned, mainly at edges of text.

         [Jugendstil Classic- Preissig] Byl Jeden Domecek

      Prague: Dedictvi Komenskeho, [1905]. First edition. Bound in the original scarce pictorial card wrappers (gray/beige with light blue design by Preissig. Twelve superb full-page color zincographs by Preissig, the renowned Czech typographer, printmaker, designer, illustrator and teacher. Very rare first edition, seldom found in the wrappers, of the famous Czech children's book. The little text portrays the transience of being on the bottom of a somewhat morbid food chain: from which the cat eats, to oxen, which serve men for a feast, which are finally buried. Alfred Langer writes to the Jugendstil artist Vojtech Preissig: "According to his motto of the" full-blooded bookgraphist, " he demanded a synthesis of craftsmanship and art. The harmony of writing and book decoration was regarded as the most desirable goal. "(Langer, Jugendstil und Buchkunst, p. 175). Near fine with minimal corner wear.

William d'Alton Mann was a businessman and newspaper and magazine publisher during the civil war. He developed the Mann Boudoir Car, a railroad sleeping car, and published the Mobile Register, The Smart Set, and Town Topics. Mann came to be known for his dubious practices. For example, he created the "blind item," a gossipy news story in which the details of a private happening are reported while the identities of the people involved are not revealed. Mann used this as blackmail to publicly threaten an individual into doing his will, lest Mann chooses to expose him. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

         Amica Poème Dramatique en deux Actes de Paul Bérel Version Rythmique Française de Paul Collin Version rythmique Italienne de Giovani Targioni-Tozzetti Partition Piano et Chant transcrite par Adriano Ariani... Edizione Italiana. [Piano-vocal score]

      Paris: Choudens [PN A.C. 13,315], 1905. Probable First Edition of the first Italian version. Amica, to a libretto by French publisher Paul de Choudens (Bérel was a pseudonym), was first performed in Monte Carlo at the Théâtre du Casino on March 16, 1905, and was an immediate success. The Italian premiere (with an Italian libretto by Mascagni's close collaborator, Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti) took place on May 13, 1905, with Riccardo Stracciari (1875-1955) as Rinaldo. Mascagni conducted both performances. It was the composer's only opera with a French libretto. "Stracciari's mellow, velvety voice, coloured and resonant over its whole range, with an extended and penetrating upper register, made him, between 1905 and 1915, the rival of Titta Ruffo and Pasquale Amato. His repertory included all the great baritone roles and among the dramatic parts he preferred those in Il trovatore, Rigoletto and Aida. But, thanks to a technique characteristic of the best traditions of the 19th century, he excelled in works which allowed him to display his courtly enunciation, smooth singing, elegant phrasing and musical delicacy."

         L'invasion de la mer. Le phare du bout du monde

      Collection hetzel 1905 - - Collection hetzel, Paris 1905, Grd. in-8 (18x27,5cm), 236pp. ; 204pp., relié. - Edition originale collective illustrée (et seule édition de ce titre) par George Roux de 12 chromotypographies, de hors-texte en noir et de nombreuses photographies de l'Algérie (certaines en couleurs). Cartonnage à un éléphant avec titre dans l'éventail rouge vermillon. Dos au phare. Second plat avec encadrement de palmettes et macaron central. Belle plaque supérieure, aux ors bien brillants, mais petites zones de décoloration sur les bordures. Second plat bien, mais avec quelques zones sombres de salissures et les bordures, notamment le mors portant des zones décolorées. Dos assez bien, avec une coiffe supérieure un peu molle, des petites zones décolorées. Un coin portant une pliure, les autres frottés. Exemplaire gauchi comportant quelques rares rousseurs. L'invasion de la mer, est le dernier roman dont Jules Verne ait pu corriger les épreuves, et se passe en Tunisie et en Algérie : projet d'un canal qui inonderait une partie du Sahara. Quant au Phare du bout du monde, Jules Verne n'en a justement pas corriger les épreuves et c'est son fils Michel qui a apporté un certain nombre de modifications au texte original. L'action se passe en Amérique du sud, à l'est de la terre de feu, là où le Pacifique et l'Atlantique se rencontrent. On y voit des pilleurs d'épaves qui font penser au roman de Stevenson du même nom. Ces deux romans ont paru pour la première fois tous les deux en 1905. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Original collective edition illustrated (and only edition of this title) by George Roux of 12 chromotypographies, of black text and numerous photographs of Algeria (some in colors). Cartonnage to an elephant with title in the red vermilion fan. Back to the lighthouse. second board with palmettes frame and central macaroon. Beautiful top plate, with bright gold, but small areas of discoloration on the borders. Second flat well, but with some dark areas of dirt and curbs, especially the bit bearing discolored areas. Back fairly well, with a slightly soft upper cap, small discolored areas. A corner with a fold, the others rubbed. Left copy with some rare foxing. The invasion of the sea is the last novel that Jules Verne has been able to correct, and is happening in Tunisia and Algeria: a canal project that floods part of the Sahara. As for the Lighthouse at the end of the world , Jules Verne did not correct the tests and it was his son Michel who made a number of modifications to the original text. The action takes place in South America, east of the land of fire, where the Pacific and the Atlantic meet. There are looters of wrecks who remind one of Stevenson's novel of the same name. These two novels appeared for the first time in 1905. 236pp. ; 204pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Autograph Text of a Speech to be given at his 100th Birthday Banquet

      - Original autograph speech in the hand of the important Spanish singer and vocal pedagogue, apparently written to be given at a banquet in honor of his 100th birthday on March 17, 1905. Garcia thanks the attendees of the banquet for "the honor that has been conferred upon me," continuing: "I see a generous encouragement addressed by one of the leaders of modern thought to an artist who has striven to cast upon his studies the light of science." He mentions his work with the laryngoscope, before thanking the committee for a gift. (Full text below.) Undated. 2 pp. of a bifolium, identified with a note in pencil in another hand (likely that of Garcia's friend and colleague, Herman Klein) along the left side of the first page. Overall toning, some light smudges and soiling; overall very good. 6.5 x 8 inches (16.3 x 20.4 cm).Text, in full: "Mr. Chairman, Ladies & Gentlemen, In rising to offer you my thanks for the honour that has been conferred upon me, you will easily understand my embarrassment. The task of replying to eloquence like that we have just heard, would be difficult even for an accomplished orator, what would it be if in replying he had to answer words of personal praise! In this most flattering appreciation of any feeble service which I may have rendered, I see a generous encouragement addressed by one of the leaders of modern thought to an artist who has striven to cast upon his studies the light of science. The instrument which has caused this manifestation owes its existence to the difficulties which constantly beset me in my teaching. The idea of examining the interior of the larynx with a mirror during the act of singing had often presented itself to me, but was always rejected as I believed it to be impracticable. Your gift is splendid, and it will become a treasure to my family. The memory of the manner & the words with which it has been offered, will remain my own peculiar treasure, one I would not barter for any grace the world powers could bestow."Interestingly, the text of this speech does not at all correlate with the toast printed in Malcolm Sterling Mackinlay's account of García's 100th birthday (Garcia the Centenarian and his Times: Being a Memoir of Manuel Garcia's Life and Labours for the Advancement of Music and Science, 1908; pp. 314-317). It is possible that the present speech may have been intended for another occasion.The Spanish baritone and vocal pedagogue Manuel García (1805-1906), son of Manuel Garcia I and brother of Maria Malibran and Pauline Garcia Viardot, spent the earlier part of his career teaching voice in Paris and the latter half of his life in London, where he taught at the Royal Academy of Music. An important pioneer in understanding the physiological processes of singing, he invented the laryngoscope in 1854 (without apparently anticipating its value to medicine). His 1840 treatise L'Art du Chant remains an important source for vocal pedagogy. His students and disciples included Jenny Lind, Christina Nilsson, Henry Wood, Mathilde Marchesi, and many other opera and stage stars of the late-nineteenth century.  From the collection of Herman Klein, a friend and colleague of Manuel Garcia who edited his publication Hints on Singing (1894).

         Atlas der menschlichen Blutzellen. Erste und Zweite Lieferung. + Supplement-Band. Erste - Dritte Lieferung. (all. publ.)

      Jena, Gustav Fischer, 1905-1912, 8, VI, 82, (1) XIV pp., pp.83-571 (4), 36 pp. IV, pp.37-131 X, pp.132-240, 43 farblith. Quart- und Foliotafeln, feinen Halbleinenbänden. Erste Ausgabe! "Mit Abschluß des nun fertiggestellten dritten Supplementheftes [beschließe ich endgültig und übergebe der Öffentlichkeit ein Werk (in 43 Tafeln und 75 Gruppenbildern aus 50 verschiedenen Krankheitsfällen), an dem ich nunmehr seit über 12 Jahren (seit 1899) unausgesetzt geschafft und gefördert habe." Obwohl also ursprünglich eigentlich in erster Linie ein didaktisches Werk geplant war, wandelte dieses sich doch mit der Zeit sehr bald mehr und mehr zu einer fast überwiegend wissenschaftlich monographischen Untersuchung um.Wer nun diesen z. T. doch ganz neuen Feststellungen, der morphologischen Hämatologie genügendes Interesse entgegenbringt, daß er die Mühe nicht scheut, den vielfach irrenden Entwicklungsgang dieses Forschungszweiges in seiner Genese per aspera an der Hand des Autors mitzudurchlaufen und sich in die Entwicklung der Gesetze der Blutzellgenese liebevoll zu vertiefen, der wird bald erkennen, daß schließlich allein die von uns zuerst vertretene und in diesem Werk abbildlich belegte Auffassung von der Zellgenese (genetische Beurteillungsmethode der Morphologie) der Blutzellen," nämlich die Lehre von der Unterscheidung zwischen Alterung und artlicher Entwicklung im allgemeinen, von Altersformen und Zeichen artlicher Differenzzierung im besonderen, nicht nur wohl begründet, sondern zurzeit wohl auch die einzige ist, die imstande ist, jede pathologische Zellform ohne Willkür restlos und befriedigend auf ihren jeweiligen normalen, behinderten oder aberrativen Entwicklungszustand und genetischen Wert hier zu erklären, und so in der Fülle der Gesichte zurechtzuweisen. Nur diese unsere Lehre von der Interferenz der Alterung mit der Differenzierung, nach der jeder morphologische Entwicklungszustand der Zelle das Produkt und die Resultante zweier koeffektiver Faktoren, eben der phyletisch-zellartlichen Differenzierung und der cytoindividuellen ontogenetischen Alterung ist, ferner die Anschauung, daß die artliche Entwicklung ihrerseits wieder analytisch in eine heteroplastische und eine homoplastisch proliferative Modalität zu zerlegen ist (derart, daß in allen Zellstämmen mindestens zwei selbständig alterungsfähige Generationen unterschieden werden müssen), nur diese Lehre und cytogenetische Auffassung ermöglicht es, mit absoluter Sicherheit jede irgendwie aufstoßende Zellform in deskriptiver Hinsicht genauestens zu bestimmen. Die Richtigkeit unserer Auffassung wird über kurz oder lang sicherlich bestätigt werden und die von uns zuerst festgestellte Kenntnis der wahren morphologischen und genetischen Verhältnisse, soweit sie mit unseren jetzigen bloß deskriptiven Methoden überhaupt zu ergründen ist, wird sich durchringen, nur werden andere, die selbst dabei weniger forschend voranzugehen als unsere Ergebnisse nachzuprüfen haben, diese unsere Lehren alsdann in knapperer und konzentrierterer Form vortragen, kommentieren und propagieren können." A. Pappenheim, Vorrede zum Ergänzungsband und Schlußworte zum Gesamtwerk des AtlassesFirst Edition, bound with all original installments wrappers! Artur Pappenheim (1870-1916) "One of the leaders in modern haematology, Pappenheim improved the methods of staining of blood cells" initially studied mathematics and philosophy, but his focus later turned to medicine, and in 1895 received his degree from the University of Berlin. Subsequently he became an assistant to Joseph von Mering at the University of Halle, and afterwards worked under neurologist Ludwig Lichtheim in Königsberg. Later he was an assistant to dermatologist Paul Gerson Unna in Hamburg and to internist Ernst Viktor von Leyden in Berlin. In 1912 he obtained the title of professor. Pappenheim established and published Folia haematologica, a journal dedicated to hematology. He was the author of several books, and postulated that haematopoietic stem cells had the potential for treatment of diseases,[1] however it would be decades before practical research would be done in this area. He died on December 31, 1916 of spotted typhus.Today, the German Society of Hematology and Oncology issues an annual Artur Pappenheim Award for the best work in the fields of hematology or haematological oncology.* Associated eponym: Pappenheim's stain: a methyl green-pyronin staining method used to differentiate between basophilic granules of erythrocytes (red blood cells) and nuclear fragments.
