        "Sonnez les Matines" - Autograph Musical Manuscript

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Signed autograph musical manuscript of a song for voice and orchesta, "Sonnez les Matines," by the French composer of opera and song whose work was admired by Debussy and Fauré. The song, for one singer and an orchestration of 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, timpani, harp, and strings, begins with the text "Pourquoi ne me bercez-vous plus..." 86 measures in A major, written in black ink on 24-staff Lard-Esnault (ed. Bellamy) manuscript paper. Corrections have been made by scraping and rewriting on three pages. The title page, with Hüe's signature, is written in blue pencil, and page numbers and rehearsal numbers have also been added in blue pencil. This manuscript was apparently used by the conductor; the song was included in Hüe's collection Jeunes Chansons sur de vieux airs (1905), with piano accompaniment. 15 pp. Toning to the cover and title page; slight edge wear and small tears to the spine, but overall in fine condition. 10.75 x 14 inches (27.5 x 35.5 cm).<br style="">"Born into a celebrated family of architects, [Hüe] was encouraged by Gounod and later studied counterpoint with Paladilhe and the organ with Franck. In 1879 he won the Prix de Rome with a cantata, Médée, and two years later won acclaim for his comic opera, Les pantins ('The Jumping-Jacks'). Vocal music was to form the core of his output... Hüe produced songs continually throughout his life. The earliest are firmly grounded in the salon tradition, while the later songs use a more developed musical language to respond to his chosen texts: Edith au col de cygne, for example, uses bars of uneven length. Between 1910 and 1920 his harmonic language advanced considerably, absorbing the added-note harmonies and static effects of the Impressionists, while remaining essentially traditional."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. München, 23. IV. 1905.

      1905. 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Wohl an den Wiener Verlag C. W. Stern: "Sehr geehrter Herr, ich möchte mir gestatten, zu dem, was Ihnen Herr von Bayros persönlich betreffs der Publikation der 'Purpurschnecke' mittheilen wird, noch einige Bemerkungen zu schreiben, die sowohl im Interesse der Publikation als dem des Verlages sein dürften. Meine und des Marquis Bayros Ansicht ist, dass in der Ausstattung des Buches alles gethan werden muss, das Bibliophilenpublikum dafür zu gewinnen, umso mehr als die Reproduktionstechnik der Blätter (Strichätzung oder Hochätzung, nicht Raster) keine an und für sich kostbare ist und die Kostbarkeit dafür auf Papier, Typendruck und Einband zu verwenden wäre, was alles grösste Sorgfalt verlangt, um nicht blos die Sache zu geben, sondern diese in der schönstmöglichen Form. Ich weiß z. B. von hiesigen Buchhandlungen (Hirsch und Jaffé), dass sie für Publikationen wie den 'Parfümierten Garten' oder 'Gamiani', die ein Leipziger Verlag herausbrachte, blos deshalb keine Abonnenten und Käufer fanden, weil diese Bücher zu mesquin ausgestattet waren. Ich kann Ihnen mittheilen, dass der Insel-Verlag keine privaten Publikationen wie Aretino und Meursius mehr zu machen gedenkt (zum grossen Bedauern der Bibliophilen) - es wäre eine gute Gelegenheit, die Arbeit des Verlages weiterzuführen, in dessen Intentionen. Dass es den Käufern, die in Betracht kommen, nicht darauf ankommt, für ein geschmackvoll gemachtes Buch zehn Mark mehr zu bezahlen, ist eine alte Erfahrung. Ich bin im Besitz der Addressen der Insel-Bibliophilen, die ich Ihnen für den Prospekt-Versand der 'Purpurschnecke' gern zur Verfügung stelle, vorausgesetzt, das Buch kommt glänzend zu stande, wobei, auch bei einem Ladenpreise von 30 Mark, mir weniger riskiert scheint als im gegentheiligen Falle. Das Gedichtms., das Ihnen Herr von Bayros überbringt, ist nicht das Ganze und enthält auch manches, das in der letzten Redaktion wegfallen wird. Der Gesamtumfang wird etwa sein: 15 Blatt Zeichnungen, 15 Blatt Titel dazu, 120 Seiten Gedicht mit den Titeln auf einer separaten Seite, also ungefähr 10 Bogen Octav. Wie wir uns das Detail denken, darüber wird Ihnen Herr von Bayros genaue Auskunft geben. Wichtig scheint mir nur ein Papier, das weich ist und das für die Reproduktion der Zeichnungen nicht satiniert zu werden braucht. Für den Einband würde ich rothes Maroquin vorschlagen, vorausgesetzt, dass dies das Buch nicht unverhältnismässig vertheuert; in diesem Falle dann elfenbeinweiße Leinwand. Für die Luxusexemplare, auf China, würde ich aber unbedingt Maroquin vorschlagen. Dass man davon leicht 50 Exemplare mindestens verkauft, scheint mir außer Frage, nach allem, was ich von Leuten, die die Blätter gesehen haben, hörte: 'Hoffentlich giebt es eine Luxusausgabe'. [...] Dass die Auflage eine auf etwa 500 Exemplare limitierte sein müsste, um dem Buch seinen Seltenheitswert und dem Preise seine zweite Berechtigung zu geben, versteht sich wohl von selbst [...]". - Der von Franz Blei herausgegebene und von Franz von Bayros illustrierte Band "Fleurettens Purpurschnecke - Erotische Lieder und Gedichte aus dem achtzehnten Jahrhundert" erschien noch in jenem Jahr als Privatdruck in einer Auflage von 560 Exemplaren bei C. W. Stern in Wien (vgl. WG² Blei, 19). - Gelocht (geringf. Buchstabenberührung).

        Mémoires d'une Princesse Arabe. Traduit de l'allemand par L. Lindsay. Paris, Dujarric & Cie., 1905.

      1905. Small 8vo. (6), 330 pp. Contemp. half calf with marbled boards and giltstamped spine. Marbled endpapers. First French edition of this fascinating biography of the Princess of Oman and Zanzibar, who married a German and later fled to Aden and Hamburg after becoming pregnant by him. The work is considered the first known autobiography of an Arab woman. It presents a remarkable perspective on the daily life of the Sultan in the mid and late 19th century, viewed from the eyes of an well-educated woman - subjects such as "La situation de la femme en Orient" ("A Woman's Position in the East", ch. XVI), courtship ("La mariage arabe", "Arab Matchmaking", ch. XVII), harems and polygamy, and even slavery are discussed at length (the Princess appearing rather favourably disposed to the latter!). As a later Christian convert, she remains fiercely proud of her homeland: "But it is just in Arabia, and with the Arab people, that the true Mahometan spirit, upon which the views of other Eastern nations are founded, has maintained itself most pure" (transl.). Her view of Muslim life represents the level-headed appreciation of a native of both East and West: "I have seen too many of such unhappy cases [of Christian marriage] to make me believe that Christian wedlock stands on a higher level or renders people much happier than the Mahometan [...] it is quite a fallacy to think that woman in the East is placed socially on a lower level than man. The legitimate wife - the purchased Sarari are of course to be excepted - stands in all respects on a par with her husband, and she always retains her rank, and all rights and titles emanating from it". Emily (Sayyida Salme) and her husband lived comfortably in Germany until the latter's death in 1870, upon which Emily was prompted to write the present work partly to alleviate her financial concerns. - Evenly browned throughout. Rare. OCLC 38270253. Cf. Hiler 763 (english ed. New York, 1907).

Bellamy) manuscript paper. Corrections have been made by scraping and rewriting on three pages. The title page, with Hüe's signature, is written in blue pencil, and page numbers and rehearsal numbers have also been added in blue pencil. This manuscript was apparently used by the conductor; the song was included in Hüe's collection Jeunes Chansons sur de vieux airs (1905), with piano accompaniment. 15 pp. Toning to the cover and title page; slight edge wear and small tears to the spine, but overall in fine condition. 10.75 x 14 inches (27.5 x 35.5 cm)."Born into a celebrated family of architects, [Hüe] was encouraged by Gounod and later studied counterpoint with Paladilhe and the organ with Franck. In 1879 he won the Prix de Rome with a cantata, Médée, and two years later won acclaim for his comic opera, Les pantins ('The Jumping-Jacks'). Vocal music was to form the core of his output. Hüe produced songs continually throughout his life. The earliest are firmly grounded in the salon tradition, while the later songs use a more developed musical language to respond to his chosen texts: Edith au col de cygne, for example, uses bars of uneven length. Between 1910 and 1920 his harmonic language advanced considerably, absorbing the added-note harmonies and static effects of the Impressionists, while remaining essentially traditional." (Richard Langham Smith, New Grove Online.)

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Berlin, 19. II. 1905.

      1905. 1 S. 4to. Aus seinem Atelier in der Motzstraße 70, an einen Kollegen in Wien: "Ihr Vorschlag ist äußerst lockend - leider aber für mich verkuhwedelt, wie wir Bayern sagen. - Die Wiener Secession hatte mir tatsächlich schon zuerst für das Frühjahr, dann für Herbst einen Saal angeboten, - aber auch der Secession gegenüber mußte ich nachträglich absagen, da ich - aus alter Freundschaft - Herrn Eugen Artin in Wien vergangenen Herbst eine Ausstellung versprochen habe. - Die Sache liegt zur Zeit, wenn ich von Artin teils, teils von [Bruno] Cassirer, hier, die diese Fragen verhandelten, höre, so, daß aus keiner Ausstellung etwas wird. Jedoch ist mein Wort mir bindend, - u. ich muß trockenen Mundes bei allen schönen Vorschlägen abseits stehen! - Es wird mich aber sehr freuen, Sie im Mai, wie Sie in Aussicht stellen, hier begrüßen zu können". - Slevogt war Mitglied der Wiener Secession. Bei Artin hatte 1897 seine erste Einzelausstellung stattgefunden, mit dem von Alfred Roller entworfenen Plakat. - Leicht gebräunt mit Bugfalten sowie kleinen Randläsuren.

        [Photographs of Alaska]

      [Alaska], 1905. 90 black and white photos measuring mostly 7 x 5 inches, mounted to the leaves of the album. Oblong 8vo. Covers off, some photos scuffed, water stains, pieces missing. 90 black and white photos measuring mostly 7 x 5 inches, mounted to the leaves of the album. Oblong 8vo. A collection of photos including images of the U.S. Revenue Cutter (USRC) Manning and her crew. Designed as a cruising cutter for the Revenue Cutter Service, the Manning was commissioned on 8 January, 1898. After service with the U.S. Navy during the Spanish-American War, the Manning returned to revenue cutter service and was assigned to the Bering Sea Patrol from 1900-1916. During the 1905 Bering Sea cruise, the crew of the Manning distributed boxes of clothing to natives of Attu and Atka that were provided by the Women's National Relief Association and some photos may possibly be from that cruise. Native-Alaskan images include 7 photos of women weaving several styles of baskets (3 of these images are taken outside and show the exterior of Barabaras, the oblong, semi-subterranean, sod-covered dwellings used by the Aleut tribe, while one of these images shows the interior of a Barabara); 7 images of individual, groupings, and close-ups of finshed baskets; 2 photos of Aleutian Islanders listening to a phonograph (apparently for the first time); and 2 images of Aleut children and an adult outside of a Barabara. Images of the Manning and her crew include the ship at dock; the Manning's six-member racing crew rowing in the harbor; the full crew on deck, in dress uniform; interior images of the ship, a group photo of seven officers in uniform; and the enlisted crew exercising on a dock. Other photos include snow-capped mountains, rock formations and other natural scenery, plants, and flowers. WH/2/

        Autograph letter signed. Falun, 25. I. 1905.

      1905. 8vo. 2 pp. on double leaf. To her translator, Marie "Mizi" Franzos (1870-1941), about translating the writer's stories into German: "The thing you ask about on page 199 of En fallen Kung ['A Fallen King'], 'Klippte Klarskinn', you can certainly skip over. I am sure it is not to be found in Germany. But in Sweden they used to, and indeed still do, put dried fish skin in boiling coffee to get it clear and beautifully brown. It was called Klarskinn ['clearskin'] and cut into small pieces. I believe that ‚Who has inspired you, woman' is to be found in the Bible, but it is so long since I wrote it that I have forgotten where. Perhaps it is in the Gospels, but I cannot say for certain. Again, krytfjärdingar [‚gunpowder firkins'] in ‚Uncle Ruben' means ‚wooden casks' filled with gunpowder. People here used formerly a little container made like casks, but much much smaller, to keep gunpowder in. You can translate it by whatever is used to keep gunpowder in with you. I am afraid I have nothing to send for Deutsche Rundschau [...]" (transl. from the Swedish original; Swedish text available upon request). - "Mizi" Franzos translated for the famous publisher Albert Langen of Munich. Bard, Marquardt & Co. of Berlin had recently begun a series of illustrated cameos, delightfully produced in an art-nouveau format, and entitled "Die Literatur". No. 7 on Selma Lagerlöf is by Oskar Levertin, and was translated from the Swedish by "Francis Maro", Franzos's alias. Lagerlöf, he says, is "the most astonishing literary anomaly I know", renewing formst hat were long thought buried, "a resurrection that has gripped the hearts of all".
