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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

CUBA RAILROAD COMPANY
[New York: Unz & Co.], 1905., 1905. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Printed wrappers, 9" x 24" one sheet, folded 9" x 4." An unrecorded map and timetable for the central route and branches of the Cuba Railroad Company in 1905. The main line, which ran through the center of the island from Havana to Santiago de Cuba, was completed in 1902, and service between the two cities began in December of that year. The route fulfilled a longstanding need for passenger and freight service between the capital and the eastern region of the country and for a connection to the agricultural interior of the country. This pamphlet prints an attractive map of the route across the island, and the service schedule in English and Spanish. The railroad was a subsidiary of the Cuba Company, the largest foreign business concern on the island during the first half of the 20th century. Covers show light use else a very good copy.

HB. 2 vols, roy. 8vo, cont. half morocco, marbled boards (a little rubbed and scuffed), teg. Light foxing affecting preliminary pages only. This is copy number 123 (of 250). Very attractive set. First edition limited to 250 numbered copies. Fine hand-coloured lithographic plates by H. Grönvold, printed by Mintern Bros. With a focus on the 365 species and subspecies of the Tunisian avifauna, the author notes ‘I have thought it advisable, where possible, to allude to the occurrence of the various species also in Algeria and Marocco, as likewise, in some cases, in Tripoli and in the Mediterranean basin generally’. Most of the descriptions are based on specimens in the author's own collection, and the greater part of the information given under the various species relating to their occurrence and life is the result of the author's personal observations in Tunis.Joseph Isaac Spadafora Whitaker (1850-1936) was a wealthy Sicilian-English ornithologist, archaeologist and sportsman. Although he had a number of interests, today he is best known for his work on the birds of Tunisia. In 1891 Whitaker joined the British Ornithologists' Union and over a period of ten years (1894-1904) visited Tunsia a number of times, building an outstanding collection of Tunisian birds, bird nests and eggs which he housed in a villa in the grounds of his home "Malfitano" in Palermo, Sicily. Some of Whitaker's Tunisian bird collection is now housed at the Natural H … [Click Below for Full Description]

1905. ***Copy of photos, personal formats, graphics, or text is prohibited. Ebay may drop listings with infractions. I review content regularly. Deluxe Limited Editions Rip Van Winkle Author: Illustrations by Arthur Rackham Description: This re-creation of the 1905 edition is limited to just 400 copies. Arthur Rackham's illustrations are a universal classic for this title and make any title a highly sought after edition. This DLE has already become a fairly scarce title and is one of the nicest versions you can find from any maker. It contains all 50 of his color plates. Arthur Rackham was already acknowledged as an accomplished black and white drawing illustrator. But it was his color plates for Rip Van Winkle that catapulted him into true greatness and led to numerous prestigious awards. He is not considered perhaps the greatest fairy tale illustrator of all time. A stunning oversized production in rich white leather. Note that photography of all white subjects, particularly with shiny plastic, can be difficult for a camera moron like me. My photos do not do it justice. Condition: SEALED in original plastic, with original shipping box. ***Stock photos of illustrations are pulled from online sources and I don't have an open copy for an exact representation of the color tone. DLE's are always well done though. This Fine Leather Book Features: Top grade, gold embossed/ornamented leather Gilded page ends to protect against dust and moisture Decorative end papers Acid neutral archival paper to last generations.

France: Fortier et Marotte. L'EQUIPAGE DU FRANCPORT Published in 1905, this large folio features a series of watercolor paintings depicting the hunt of the Chateau du Francport, one of the old and most prestigious in France, which was to be disbanded with the coming of the Great War. The paintings, by French artist P. Roque, feature numerous portraits of various French aristocrats who would have participated in the hunt. This book was apparently intended as the first in a series of books on the hunt in France, but no further volumes were ever issued. Very few copies of L'Equipage du Francport were printed, and it is rare in the extreme. I find only one other copy online, selling for $2,000. The book originally contained 34 chromolithographic plates, but three of these have been removed. (The images are reproduced one to a sheet and are designed for removal and framing.) The remaining images are in quite good shape, with occasional fingers marks and other fairly minor signs of age and handling. A corner is torn from one leaf, as seen in the photo. The covers show moderate general wear, and the binding is beginning to hinge (8th photo); the plates are all still firmly bound in. A remarkable souvenir of La Belle Epoque, seldom on the market. Hardcover, about 18.5" X 13.75", 31 plates plus a one-page index. The contemporary photo of the chateau in this ad does not appear in the book. Ships promptly & securely. [Attributes: First Edition]

[Utopias] [Physical Culture Movement] [McFadden, Bernarr] Physical Culture City
Physical Culture City, 1905. First Edition. Physical Culture City, Spotswood, New Jersey, 1905 or later. Thirty-one images in total, varying sizes, most 3 x 5 inches or smaller. Fair to Good. Bernarr Macfadden was a proponent of Physical Culture, a movement combining exercise with nutrition and ascetic living that helped give rise to bodybuilding culture. The movement had origins in the mid nineteenth century in Germany, the United Kingdom and eventually America. Macfadden's system gained popularity largely through the exposure he gave it in his large publishing empire. He founded Physical Culture magazine in 1899, and eventually grew his publishing holdings to include several other publications including Liberty, True Detective, Photoplay and others. In 1905, McFadden purchased land in Spotswood, New Jersey with the intention of forming a community of Physical Culture proponents. He wrote, in Physical Culture, that he wanted to form a community where "physical culturists could live the kind of life they could not find out in the rest of the world... No sickly prudes, no saloons, drug stores, tobacco shops or places in which one may purchase things that make for the moral undoing of man or woman!" After engaging the services of two hundred loyal physical culturists to clear the land and build the camp, Macfadden moved his entire publishing operation to the newly-built camp in 1905. The experiment was short-lived. Residents of the area complained of the physical culturists scant attire, the camp suffered from disorganization, and Macfadden was busy dealing with various … [Click Below for Full Description]

Aus dem Nachwort dieser Ausgabe: "Goethes Schilderung des römischen Carnevals erschien Jahrzehnte vor der 'Italienischen Reise', worin wir es jetzt finden, in einer Luxusausgabe. Ihr besonderer Wert beruhte in den zwanzig farbigen Tafeln, die Goethes römischer Hausgenosse Georg Schütz oder, wie der Dichter im Alter Soret gegenüber äusserte, er selbst nach dem Leben farbig skizziert und Georg Melchior Kraus radiert und illuminiert hatte. Zur Ostermesse 1789 erschien das Werk, war aber schon nach wenigen Monaten völlig vergriffen. Am 14. Dezember 1798 schrieb Goethe an die Herzogin Anna Amalia: "Das Carneval hat auch in Deutschland Liebhaber gefunden. Der Kleinmut der Entrepreneurs, Bertuch und Krause, hat ihnen zu einer kleinen Auflage geraten, die nun ganz vergriffen ist, ohne dass man doch wagen kann, eine zweite zu machen."
