        Sommerliche Birken am Weg.

      - Farbholzschnitt, auf dünnem Japan, signiert und als „Originalholzschnitt, Handdruck." bezeichnet. Darstellungsgröße 28:20,5 cm, Blattgröße 36:25,5 cm. Helene Mass war Schülerin von Walter Leistikow in Berlin. Er dürfte ihr den Farbholzschnitt nahe gebracht haben. Vermutlich begann ihre Beschäftigung mit dieser graphischen Technik um oder nach 1905. Ihre Blätter sind stets sehr koloristisch aufgefaßt und zeichnen sich durch satte Farbgebungen aus. Es sind Darstellungen von Landschaften und Gärten, meist aus beengtem Blickwinkel gesehen. Häufig geht ein Ölgemälde voraus bzw. besteht eine enge Verwandtschaft zwischen der Malerei und der Graphik. (Vgl. Ausst. Katalog: Daniel Studer, Faszination Farbholzschnitt. Der japanisierende Farbholzschnitt als Kunstform des Jugendstils. Mit einem Katalog der Holzschnitte von Martha Cunz. St. Gallen, Historisches und Völkerkundemuseum, 2016/17, S. 227). Helene Mass war Mitglied der Berliner Sezession, an deren Ausstellungen sie von Beginn an beteiligt war. 1919-20 besuchte sie einen Vorkurs bei Johannes Itten (1888-1977) am Bauhaus in Weimar.

        224 Original Watercolour Paintings, Rendering Scenes from Travels to Egypt, the West Indies, Australia, Europe and More.

      1905. Watercolour views from around the world, 1905-1949, made by May Joscelyne who was connected to the family of Jasper Moon of Llanymynech. Each painting on a separate leaf of art paper, oone hundred and ninety-nine of which measure approximately 25 x 17 cm, and twenty-five being slightly smaller at approximately 17 x 12 cm (or in between the two sizes). Several are captioned and dated in manuscript by the artist to verso. Occasional tears to margins, otherwise in very good condition, lovely nostalgic views of the world in watercolour. From the estate sale of wealthy shipper Jasper Moon (1881-1975), of White Rock House, situated in hills half a mile from the village of Llanymynech which straddles the English and Welsh border. Jasper Moon's daughter Ursula (born 1912) married Peter Harry Joscelyne (died 1958), May Joscelyne therefore possibly being his mother or an aunt. Peter's father was Dr. F.P. Joscelyne of Cornwall, England, District Surgeon & Beaufort Estates Medical Officer. Little is known of the female artist May Joscelyne, apart from her connection to the Moon family, and that she died in 2012 at the notable age of 104. In the same year, the White Rock House and estate at Llanymynech was sold, including the present archive of her watercolours. May's art work reveals that she enjoyed the privileged available to the upper class, such as extensive around the world. The highlight of the lot are the paintings made in Egypt and the Sudan in 1923. At least 17 photographs are identified as being from Egypt; there may be more. These includes paintings of the Pyramids and Sphynx of Giza, White Nile scenes, views of Assouan (Aswan), the city of Cairo and its striking mosque minarets, a view of Luxor from the Nile with a felucca in the foreground, and the Red Sea. One image of three small pyramid tombs is captioned "Kassala Desert" which is in the Sudan, possibly depicting the Pyramids at Jebel Barkal in the Sudan. Travelling to the extremities of the African continent, in Morocco she paints the Koutoubia Mosque minaret tower of Marrakesh, in South Africa, Table Mountain, the vast plains and Iron Mountain [Yzerberg] in the Zoutspanberg district of Transavaal, White River, and Hermanus Island off of Cape Town. Seven or more paintings capture Hawaii's splendour back in 1937. Tranquil views include Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach, Cooper Island of the Palmyra Atoll, and Honolulu Harbour. Spectacular beaches of the West Indies are well represented as she memorializes her voyage to Montego Bay in Jamaica, to Haiti, and in Martinique 1935. A rocky coastal view is captioned 'Old Panama.' Vivid colours and tropical flora are accentuated in the exquisite gardens of the Matava Hotel in Fiji, visiting there in 1949. A voyage to Australia and New Zealand was made in 1939, as seen by the artistic views of the coastline between Brisbane and Sydney, and New Zealand's spectacular lakes Lake Rotorua, Wakatipu, and Wanaka (also known as Lake Pembroke). Not far away, May also visited Kuta Beach in Bali, which is depicted in at least two of her works. The farthest voyage made was to America. A soft-hued sunset painting is captioned 'Saint Lawrence River, Quebec.' Continental sojourns took the artist to Ronda and Malaga in Spain, along the coast of Portugal affording an island view off of Cascais, to Sorrento in Italy, to France where she paints the enchanting river valley scenes of Castéra-Bouzet in 1913 as well as the Palais des Papes in Avignon and views of Dieppe, and finally up to the famous North Sea coast of Noordwijk aan Zee in The Netherlands. (The earliest views in the lot are from Europe.) With posh retreats, English gardens and more beaches to explore at home in the UK, we find views of some of the Lochs of Scotland, Kilconquhar Castle in Fife, Wales Dolgelly, Harlech, Newquay, Pembroke, Windermere Lake in Cumbria, Ullswater, and Holywell. Perhaps the most charming European scene is that of a beach lined with carts known as a bathing machines. [Around the 1750s the four-wheeled carts came into use, normally rolled out to sea by a horse. Swimwear hadn't yet been invented yet and privacy was of utmost importance, for women most certainly. Equipped with a door on each side, and a roof-top flag to notify the driver that bathing was complete, the bathing machines remained in active use on English beaches until the 1890s, when they began to be parked on the beach and used as stationary changing rooms. When legal segregation of bathing areas in Britain ended in 1901 and swimwear became acceptable, the carts became stationery beach changing rooms. Most of them had disappeared altogether in the United Kingdom by 1914, and by the 1920s, they were almost entirely extinct, except for those used by the elderly.].

        Doktor Glas.

      Albert Bonniers 1905 - FIRST EDITION, a couple of light pencil marks, pp. [1v], 253, [2], foolscap 8vo, contemporary half calf with marbled boards, the backstrip lettered in gilt with three raised bands, extremities a little rubbed, marbling to edges with that to fore-and tail edges a little faint, patterned endpapers, good. A scarce first edition of the Swedish author's most important work, written in the form of a diary recording the eponymous physician's descent into despair - and within the larger themes of sex and death, dealing with abortion, euthanasia, adultery and suicide (all apt to cause the sort of scandal that the book provoked). The nature of the journal form allows for a subtle handling of the narrator's ennui and the book's complex moral issues, and the novel is both very much of its time in terms of the literary and philosophical influences on the narrative's presentation as well as predicting several of the tropes and preoccupations that would become staples of modernist practice. The first English edition appeared in 1963 with an introduction by William Sansom - the most recent edition replaced this with one by Margaret Atwood.

        Zaiavlenie i Dokumenty o razryve tsentral'nykh uchrezhdenii s partiei [A statement and documents concerning the split between the Central committees and the party].

      Geneva: Izdatel'stvo "Vpered"; Kooperativnaia tipografiia 1905 - Small octavo (17 × 11 cm). Original staple-stitched self-wrappers; 13, [1] pp. Printed on thin onion-skin paper. Publisher's ad for the journal "Vpered." Good or better; wrappers lightly soiled; old private library label and stamps of a Russian Workers' Library in Paris and private stamp of the collector Marcel Bekus. With an advertisement for the journal "Vpered" to the last page. First and only edition of Lenin's angry indictment of three members of the Social-Democratic Labor Party's Central Committee, Glebov-Avilov (1887-1937), Nikitin (1787-1918), and Valentin, for agitating against the planned Third Party Congress, as well as against Lenin himself. Lenin's pamphlet in effect widened the split between the Bolshevik and the Menshevik factions that had occurred at the Party's Second Congress in Summer 1903. Whatever spirit of collaboration had been left between its members was eliminated by Lenin's enumeration of offenses, and he went so far as to call for an arbitration tribunal to settle the matter. When the Third Congress was indeed held, it included only the Bolshevik faction, and the Mensheviks held a separate meeting in Geneva. As a result, the Party's organization as a small group of professional revolutionaries was confirmed, and the role of its Central Committee strengthened, further paving the way toward the eventual Bolshevik coup in 1917. A variant in light green printed wrappers was also issued. Item 757 in the Bernstein and Souvarine catalog, which notes that this pamphlet was "of great importance for the history of the development of the role of the Central Committee, which, at the 3rd Congress (London 1905) was made the sole directing center of the Party" (p. 129). This copy from the collection of Marcel Bekus (1888-1939), the Warsaw-born historian of socialism, who participated in the 1905 Revolution and owned a large collection of revolutionary literature.

        Serat Menak [ The Book of Menak]....

      1905. 276 pages of Javanese manuscript written in the hanacaraka script in a lined journal, double card covers have separated on the lower cover and a few unrelated printed leaves in Dutch (including a form in Dutch authorising someone to collect wood!) bound in presumably to give the covers strength are now visible. Even browning, some occasional stains in the margins, insect damage at lower corner last two leaves not affecting text, one leaf written upside down, first leaf creased, binding skewed and worn but still sound. A very nice manuscript copy of an important Javanese work. 35 x 20.5cm. This manuscript is of The Javanese Menak which are romances inspired by stories of Persian origin based on the adventures of Amir Hamzah or Amir Ambyah, the uncle of the prophet Muhammad. The MS is written in a clear hand in Javanese hanacaraka script.Some initial leaves give a list of the contents of the book as well as a history of its provenance which states that this is a book of Menak, written by Sumantri in Blora, bought by Mas Martosudirjo, head teacher in Blora, 1905 and signed by Martosudirjo.The preliminary leaves are followed by the manscript of the story itself which is in macapat verse beginning in Durma metre. A small notation in the top left corner of p.1 of the MS seems to indicate that the writing of the manuscript was begun on May 12th, 1905 and completed on September 12th 1905.

        From the City of the Sun: Being Poems and Songs by C. R. Ashbee

      Essex House Press, London 1905 - Essex House Press, London, 1905. Limited edition of 251, this being no 20. Book condition: very good. Grey boards lightly soiled. Paper labels to spine and front. Wood engraved illustrations, printer's device at end. The book has only been partly opened with most pages still uncut at upper edge. Loose bookplate of Ken Tomlinson to front pastedown. No jacket. This volume came from the collection of private press books built up by the Tomkinson family. Michael Tomkinson (1841 - 1921) established Tomkinson Carpets in Kidderminster and was a major collector of books and Japanese antiquities. Although some of his collection was sold after his death his son, Geoffrey (1881 - 1963), continued and grew the private press collection and published 'A Select Bibliography of the Principal Modern Presses Public and Private in Great Britain and Ireland' (1928). When Geoffrey died in 1963 his son Kenneth (1918 - 1985) continued to add to two generations of Tomkinson family private press books. This collection was recently broken up and sold. Charles Robert Ashbee (1863 - 1942) was an English designer and a prime mover in the Arts and Crafts movement. Ashbee set up the Essex House Press after William Morris's Kelmscott Press closed in 1897. He took on many of the printers and craftsman who had been working at kelmscott Press. Ashbee designed two type faces for Essex House (Endeavour and Prayer Book) both of which were based upon Morris's Golden Type. This volume is printed using Endeavour and includes six songs together with their melodies (the melodies being mainly 17th or 18th century). A rare and intriguing book with an interesting provenance.

Original dark blue fine vertical-ribbed cloth, titles gilt to spines, gilt embossed medallions to front boards (reverse and obverse of the medal struck by the RGS), top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Extremities very lightly rubbed and bumped, vol. 1 spine gently rolled with commensurate mild cockling to cloth, rear board lightly marked, internally both volumes with slightly toned text-blocks, mild spotting to prelims, each of the 2 folding maps with one browned panel, vol. 1 with pale damp-stain to upper inner corner of frontispiece, rear inner hinge cracked but holding. A very good copy. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, title pages printed in red and black, 12 colour plates, 158 half-tone photographic plates, 12 further black and white plates, 5 double-page panoramas of which 4 from photographs, 5 maps of which one double-page and 2 folding in end-pockets. First edition, first impression, "uncommon" US issue (Rosove), of Scott's official narrative of his first Antarctic expedition, published simultaneously with the UK issue. The 1901-4 voyage of the Discovery was the first scientific expedition to pass two consecutive winters at a high latitude in Antarctica, and made the first extensive land journeys into the interior of the continent; a farthest south of 82°17' was achieved on 30 December 1902. The trip was the beginning of the mutual antipathy between Scott and Shackleton, partly owing to Scott's forcing Shackleton's early return to England on account of illness. Among the civilian scientists was Dr Edward Adrian Wilson, Scott's close friend and confidant on this and his last expedition, where he too was to die; a talented artist, he also contributed watercolours for the attractive frontispieces and several of the plates, including all those in colour. With twenty-eight sledge journeys accomplished, the ice sheet explored, and a comprehensive scientific programme completed, the expedition was a triumph, although the failure of Scott's dogs was an ominous portent. This copy bears the gift inscription, "Lewis Herresshoff, from S. G. Coxe, February 1906" to the front free endpaper of the first volume. The recipient (1844-1926) was a member of a noted family of American marine engineers and yachtbuilders; his nephew (1890-1972) was also called Lewis, but went by Francis. An agreeable association copy of this "elaborate and handsome publication" (Taurus), a classic of the genre. Books on Ice 6.6; Rosove 286 A3; Spence 1050; Taurus 41. [Attributes: First Edition]
