Andreas-Salomé, Lou, Schriftstellerin, Psychoanalytikerin und Muse von Nietzsche, Rilke und Freud (1861-1937).
Sehr inhaltsreicher Brief an die Schauspielerin Else Heims-Reinhardt, am Beginn ihrer Trennung von Max Reinhardt: "Gestern sprach ich Hedwig Kontor. und war nicht wenig betrübt, so ungute Nachrichten über Ihr Ergehen zu bekommen! [...] Ueber R. denk ich so imgrunde: ob nicht in seiner schöpferischen Begabung was ist, was ihn von dorther in immer erneute Sinnesverwirrung reißt, - wissen Sie, ähnlich, wie ein Lyriker stets neue Lieben anschmachtet, die doch nur lyrische Gelegenheiten sind und seine 'Dauergefühle' nicht berühren; nur daß bei R.'s schrecklicher Potenz die Dinge so leiblich ablaufen. Tatsächlich sind diese Dinge doch nicht im Zentrum seines nordischen Wesens. Ich weiß ja nichts, doch alles spricht dafür, sowohl sein Verhältniß zu Ihnen, so wie es trotz und während solcher Zeiten manchmal blieb, als auch seine Seltsamkeiten als ob er überhängt am Weibe und irrtümlich seiner Grundsensation [?]. Jedenfalls ist er eine Mengung von großen und von argen Eigenschaften, die irgendwie nicht zu trennen sein mögen. Das Furchtbare ist jedoch, daß Sie leiden, Sie sollen auch elend aussehen. Was machen wir nur, Else? [...] Liebe Else, schreiben Sie mir doch noch von allem so daß ich ein Bild kriege: Oft mein' ich: mit R. sprechen wär gut, - ob das ginge? [...]" - Wohl auf Vermittlung Gerhart Hauptmanns hatte Lou Andreas-Salomé von 1905 bis 1908 mehrmals Max Reinhardt und seine Schauspieler am Deutschen Theater in Berlin besucht, darunter auch Else Heims, seit 1910 Max Reinhardts Ehefrau. Schon 1913 lernte Max Reinhardt die 16 Jahre jüngere Schauspielerin Helene Thimig kennen, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bookseller ticket of Alan Hancox, Cheltenham, to front pastedown of volume I. Spines uniformly toned to brown, offsetting and some foxing to endpapers, expert restoration to spines. Complete first editions of this collection of English translations of the great Icelandic sagas, many of which are the primary sources of stories from Norse mythology. Morris's love for these tales and histories compelled him to provide English-speaking readers better access to the Old Northern tradition in an ambitious collaboration with his Old Norse teacher. The volumes include the first editions in English of HOWARD THE HALT, HEN THORIR, and THE STORY OF THE ERE-DWELLERS, as well as the sagas of THE BANDED MEN and THE HEIMSKRINGLA. A characteristically beautiful production from Arts and Crafts artist William Morris of Old Scandinavian texts in early English translations, scarce complete.

Floyd, Grace; Wain, Louis
London: Tuck, 1905. Very good plus.. Original stiff pictorial card covers. Illustrated by Wain with 12 full-page color plates and 2 line illustrations, in addition to pictorial covers. Some inconspicuous spine strengthening, small corner repair. Rare and fabulous Wain fairy tale book, wherein 12 classic characters are depicted as cats. Known as "The Edwardian Cat Artist That Went Mad," Wain was once "the most famous cat artist on earth" (Haining). His work in conceiving an entire Catland inspired the creators of Felix the Cat and even Mickey Mouse; Haining notes that Wain also "played a major part in making the cat the most popular of all domestic pets." Included here are Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Bluebeard, Robin Hood, Sinbad, Aladdin, Robinson Crusoe, Forty Thieves, Cinderella, Babes in the Wood, Sleeping Beauty and Jack the Giant Killer.

The Finding of Moses - Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, 1905
Heliogravure vervaardigd in 1905 door de Berlin Photographic Company naar het schilderij van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema uit 1904, in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 48 x 74,8 cm. In originele lijst. Eind 1902 reisde Alma-Tadema naar Egypte (in die tijd onder Brits protectoraat) als gast van de ingenieur Sir John Aird om de inauguratie van de Aswan Dam bij te wonen, die Aird’s bedrijf net had gebouwd. Aird wilde voor de gelegenheid een Egyptisch schilderij door Alma-Tadema laten maken. Het onderwerp werd Exodus II:6, duidend op een eerdere belangrijke gebeurtenis op de Nijl: "En de dochter van Farao ging af, om zich te wassen in de rivier; en haar jonkvrouwen wandelden aan den kant der rivier; zo zag zij dat knechtje; en zij werd met barmhartigheid bewogen over hetzelve." Het werd een van Alma-Tadema’s mooiste werken. We zien een koninklijke processie langs de Nijl. De entourage van de dochter van de Farao loopt langs lavendel en ridderspoor, liefdevol kijkt zij Mozes aan. Links een rood granieten beeld van een zittende farao, met op de sokkel in hiëroglyfen "Geliefd door Ra, de koning van Opper- en Neder Egypte." Alma-Tadema werkte twee jaar lang aan het doek, totdat zijn vrouw opgemerkt schijnt te hebben dat het jongetje inmiddels twee jaar was en niet meer gedragen hoefde te worden. Prijs: Euro 5.500,- (incl. lijst)

E. M. Forster
Published by William Blackwood & Sons, London; 1905. First Edition. 8vo. Condition: Good+. no dj. This first edition of Forster’s first novel is a true rarity. Bound in original blue cloth with black title to front and gilt to spine, there is some general wear to the binding and fading to the spine, partly erasing the E of the author’s name and publishing details at base. Inspite of this, the book remains in smart condition. Inside, the pages are clean and bright with just some light toning and age spotting. There is a neat ownership inscription to half title.The hinges are weakening and open at title page and rear board, otherwise the stitching is tight and pages are clean and smart. The book is housed in a specially made clam shell case, which is in excellent condition and very smart indeed. In all, this is a handsome example of this very rare first novel of E. M. Forster, a true collector’s item and it would sit well on any shelf. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"Beatrix Potter, writer of some of the most beloved children's books of all time, was a woman of immense talent, indefatigable spirit, and a generous heart...Although she grew up in London, she was deeply influenced by long family holidays in the countryside, first in Scotland and later in the English lake district. As was the custom in families of her class, she was educated at home by governesses. An eager student of languages and literature, she grew up loving classic folk and fairy tales...Her talent for drawing and painting was discovered early and encouraged" (Beatrix Potter Society). Her career began with the release of the now-beloved Tale of Peter Rabbit; and her subsequent works expanded into a magical world of anthropomorphic animals such as Tom Kitten, Squirrel Nutkin, and Benjamin Bunny. There were three printings of the first edition of The Tale of Benjamin Bunny. The first printing was of 20,0000 copies in September 1904, the second printing was of 10,000 copies in October 1904, and the third pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Transparent tape repairs to spine and the fore-edge to a few leaves. Pale gift inscription to upper wrapper. A scarce and attractive survivor to children's enthusiastic hands. Unrecorded by Dale. At the end of the last century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. "He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (H.G. Wells). Here, alongside illustrations from Palmer Cox, who also specialized in Scottish fairytales and rhymes. [Attributes: First Edition]
