        Night Fall in the Ti-Tree

      Melbourne: Sign of the Rabbit, 1905. Teague, Violet and Geraldine Rede. Small quarto. (32)pp. Extremely rare first edition. Illustrated with sixteen woodcut illustrations in the Japanese style, six of which are double-page spreads. All but four minor illustrations are hand-initialed in ink by the contributing artist. Set opposite the illustrations, the letterpress-printed verse is a cautionary tale, warning rabbits in their dens to avoid hunter's traps. The atmospheric images, rendered in earth tones, deftly capture both the danger lurking in the night, as well as the peace of a rabbit's simple life. Entirely handmade by Violet Teague and her friend Geraldine Reed in Teague's Melbourne home, Night Fall in the Ti-Tree is the first book in Australia to be produced and illustrated in the Japanese style using colored woodcuts. Teague, who was probably introduced to Japanese prints while studying in England and Europe in the late 1800s, tried to imitate Japanese production techniques as closely as she could. The illustrations were created using water-based inks brushed directly onto the woodblocks, which had been cut along the grain rather than against it, as in Western woodcuts. The binding is also in the Japanese style, with the pages folded at the fore-edge, and stab-sewn through the spine with a green ribbon. Two common techniques in Japanese illustration were also employed to great advantage: asymmetrical illustrations that extend past the edge of the page, and the division of an illustration into two parts for a double-page spread. Taken as a whole, the work is a beautiful and compelling tribute to Japanese style, as well as an important example of Japoniste art in Australia. Teague went on to become a great promoter of Japanese woodblock prints, writing articles and giving demonstrations on technique. Reed published her own book of woodcut illustrations with verse in 1909, titled A Little Book of Trees. Very few copies of this first edition of Night Fall in the Ti-Tree were printed or sold, although it was exhibited several times in Australia following its production, even winning an award at the 1907 First Australian Exhibition of Women's Work. In 1906, it was picked up by English publisher Elkin Mathews for a second edition. Teague re-worked the title page, crediting herself as the author, changing the year on the rabbit logo, and adding Mathews's information under the original imprint. Compared to the 1906 edition, this first 1905 printing has lighter tonal printing to the plates and blacker printing of the text. Original ties replaced with green ribbon, and protected by a custom-made drop-back box. A fine example of a rare item. Together with the 1988 National Gallery of Australia facsimile of the second edition.

        Postkartenalbum mit 126 Originalfarbstiftzeichnungen und -aquarellen.

      Moutier 1905 - Moutier, (Ca. 1905-1925) 24x34,5 cm. montiert auf 63 Blatt. Lederband der Zeit mit intarsiertem Jugendstilnonogramm "E.M". Wunderschöne Sammlung mit Originalarbeiten des bisher viel zu wenig beachteten Schweizer Jugendstil- und Art-Déco Künstlers Florentin Garraux (1859 - 1950). Garraux besuchte die Primarschule in Solothurn und machte dann eine kaufmännische Lehre in einer grossen Basler Firma. Anschliessend bereiste er die Schweiz als Handlungsreisender. Nach seiner Heirat im Jahre 1889, führte er für 38 Jahre ein Epicerie-Mercerie-Geschäft an der rue Centrale in Moutier. Parallel zu dieser Tätigkeit, entstand eine umfangreiche Sammlung von Postkarten, mit der er grossen Erfolg erzielte. Sie wurde erstmals 1909 im Kunstmuseum Bern ausgestellt. In der Mitte der 1910er Jahre, nahm Garraux einige Zeit Unterricht bei Philippe Ritter, Professor für Zeichnen am „Musée d'art industriel de Berne". Im Jahr 1927 gab er sein Geschäft auf und zog nach Bern und später nach Langenthal, wo er sich hauptsächlich seiner Kunst widmete. Seine meist postkartengrossen Bilder mit humorvollem Inhalt, stellen Personen in historischen Kostümen dar. Die private Korrespondenz illustrierte er gerne mit kleinen Aquarellen. Im Internet werden gelegentlich Original-Postkarten zum Kauf angeboten. Im Lindenhof in Langenthal verbrachte er den Lebensabend und starb dort im Alter von 90 Jahren. Garraux verbindet in seinen vordergründig Gelegenheitskunst in höchster Raffinesse die Verbindung ornamentaler Formen mit der Karikatur, der Mode und der Kalligrafie. Es gelingt ihmdabei die einmalige Mischung zwischen Stilelementen der Wiener Werkstätten, dem französischen Jugendstil mit Elementen des Schweizer Symbolismus (Amiet, Hodler, Bieler etc.). Wiewohl in der Schweiz eine bedeutende Anzahl von Künstlern zwischen 1890 - 1920 mit den Elementen des Jugendstils arbeiteten, existiert, im Gegensatz zu Österreich, Deutschland und Frankreich, der Begriff des "Schweizer Jugendstil" als Sammelbegriff nicht. Vorliegende Sammlung wurde von Emmy Lang, die Ehefrau des Berner Verlegers Emil Lang, Francke Verlag zusammengestellt. Die Karten entstanden, sowohl als Auftrag im Abonnement (jede Woche ein Bild), aber auch als spontane Mitteilungen, meist begleitet von Texten zum Ergehen und Erleben des Zeichners. - Ein Augenschmaus und eine Entdeckung. Sprache: N Lederband der Zeit mit intarsiertem Jugendstilnonogramm "E.M". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        VERS ET PROSE, TOME 1, mars 1905 - VERS ET PROSE, TOME 1, mars-avril-mai 1905 - LA NOUVELLE REVUE FRANCAISE N° 1 du 15 novembre 1908 - LA NOUVELLE REVUE FRANCAISE N° 1 du1er février 1909.

      Exceptionnel ensemble composé de 4 numéros historiques des revues "Vers et Prose" et "La Nouvelle Revue Française" à savoir : VERS ET PROSE TOME 1. PREMIER NUMÉRO. Paris s.n. mars 1905 - . In-8 broché de 122 pp. Recueil trimestriel de littérature, dirigé par Paul Fort. Présentation de Viélé-Greffin, suivie de la note d'intention de la rédaction. Textes de Marcel Schwob, Henri de Régnier, André Gide, Émile Verhaeren, Jean Moréas, Maurice Maeterlinck, Pierre Quillard, Robert de Souza, William-Butler Yeats, Albert Mockel, Nicolas Deniker, Tancrède de Visan et André Salmon. Fondée grâce à l'implication d'André Gide, qui choisit ce numéro pour la publication de "Bou Saada". Tiré à petit nombre, ce premier numéro fut rapidement épuisé, victime de son succès. En mai 1905, Paul Fort réunit les fonds pour une seconde édition : VERS ET PROSE, TOME 1. DEUXIÈME ÉDITION DU PREMIER NUMÉRO, Paris, s.n., mars-avril-mai 1905. In-8 broché de 122 pp. Avec quelques corrections de détails et des modifications plus significatives : la note d'intention de la rédaction passe en première page, et le texte d'Albert Mockel est recomposé dans sa version définitive. ON JOINT : LA NOUVELLE REVUE FRANCAISE N° 1. PREMIER NUMÉRO, NON COMMERCIALISÉ. Paris, s.n., 15 novembre 1908. In-8 broché de 88 pp. Revue fondée par André Gide et Eugène Montfort, qui en assume la direction. Textes de Michel Arnauld, Charles-Louis Philippe, Marcel Boulenger, T. E. Lascaris et Jean Schlumberger. Après de nombreuses collaborations à diverses revues, André Gide décida de fonder la sienne, avec pour ambition d'y accueillir des écrivains appartenant "à la génération qui dans la chronologie littéraire suivit immédiatement le symbolisme". Il se rapprocha alors d'Eugène Montfort, directeur de la revue "La Marge". Puis ils firent appel à leurs amis proches, parmi lesquels Michel Arnauld et Charles-Louis Philippe, tous deux collaborateurs de "La Revue Blanche", Jacques Copeau, André Ruyters, Jean Schlumberger et Henri Ghéon. Ce numéro historique du 15 novembre 1908 ne fut pas distribué, suite à des divergences au sein du groupe au sujet de deux articles, dont l'un critiquait l'œuvre de Stéphane Mallarmé et l'autre louait celle de Gabriele D'Annunzio. Gide quitta alors la rédaction avec son groupe d'amis, et entreprit la publication d'un "second numéro un" : LA NOUVELLE REVUE FRANCAISE N° 1. PREMIER NUMÉRO OFFICIEL. Paris, s.n., [Association de La Nouvelle Revue Française], 1er février 1909. In-8 broché de 110 pp. Publié sous la direction de Jacques Copeau, André Ruyters et Jean Schlumberger. Présentation de Jean Shlumberger, textes de Lucien Jean, Jean Croué, Michel Arnauld et André Gide, qui donne la première partie de "La Porte étroite". Ce numéro fut distribué comme l'opus original, qui officialise la création de "La Nouvelle Revue Française". Bel ensemble, avec de rares marques d'usage. Les deux numéros de "Vers et Prose" ont des manques en coiffes et en bordure des plats, l'intérieur est très frais, un des volumes est non coupé. Les deux numéros de "La Nouvelle Revue Française" sont en bon état intérieur et extérieur, et accompagnés d'un feuillet promotionnel daté de 1911. Tampon d'ex-libris sur chaque page de garde. LES COMMANDES SUPERIEURES A 50 EUROS SONT EXPEDIEES EN SUIVI EN OU RECOMMANDE, LES FRAIS DE PORT SERONT AJUSTES EN CONSEQUENCE.

Clemens attended a soiree at their 388 Beacon Street home in Boston in October 1905.In an article titled ""Mark Twain's Guide to Health,"" in the Boston Sunday Post, May 20, 1906, towards the end of an interview with a Post reporter at Twain's summer home in Dublin, Mark Twain said, ""And now, my dear friend, as long as you come from Boston, let me tell you of the little secret about my health that a Boston woman taught me. I was suffering with that affliction that others call indigestion at the time I was spending two weeks in Boston at the home of Mrs. S.B. Pearmain, and that lady asked me: 'Mr. Clemens, won’t you let me feed you as you should be fed for a week or two and allow me to prove that your dyspepsia can be cured or helped?' It was agreed … She told me that I needed plenty of food, as I had been starving an excellent digestive apparatus, and there is not a doctor that lives today who can tell me that she was not right in her cure … The change that the woman brought about in me was so marked that it would not take even a fool long to find out that she was right…"""

        The voyage of the 'Discovery'.

      London Smith Elder 1905 - First edition, second impression. 2 volumes, 8vo., 260 full-page and smaller illustrations by Dr. E.A. Wilson and other members of the expedition, photogravure frontispieces, 12 coloured plates, panoramas and maps, original blue cloth gilt, original light blue dust-wrappers, light spotting, an excellent set. Rare in Dust-Wrappers. Scott's account of his National Antarctic Expedition of 1901-1904. In the period leading up to the first world war, the the estate manager of the Hall was E. Bernard Wilson, elder brother of Edward Wilson. Edward Wilson was appointed to serve as second surgeon, artist, and zoologist on Scott's Discovery Expedition. The owners of the Hall, understandably excited by their link to the newly explored Antarctic regions, acquired the present copy and treated it with reverence, not discarding the dust-wrappers as was usual at the time. Scott was given the command of the National Antarctic expedition and was made Commander of the Discovery. The expedition was organized by the Royal Geographic Society and the Royal Society and its aim was the scientific exploration of South Victoria Land and the ice barrier, discovered by Sir James Ross, and the interior of the Antarctic continent. Scott made sledge journeys inland with Shackleton and Wilson. He made the first long journey towards the interior of Antarctica, and in addition to surveying the coast of South Victoria Land and taking soundings of the Ross Sea, important scientific discoveries were made in the fields of zoology, magnetism, and meteorology.

      Hurst and Blackett, London 1905 - Landon, Percival. LHASA. An Account Of The Country And People Of Central Tibet And Of The Progress Of The Mission Sent There By The English Government In The Year 1903-4. London, 1905, Hurst and Blackett, First U.K. Edition. Two volume set, xix, 414 pp; xi, 426 pp. Titles in red & black, with half-title in Vol. II only. 2 frontispieces, Portraits, 7 maps & plans (4 in colour of which 1 is folding), 24 photogravures, 13 coloured plates, 4 B&W plates and numerous text illustrations, (many full-page, a few in colour). Tissue guards with legends. Account of the 1903-04 British expedition to Tibet led by Lieut.-Col. Francis Edward Younghusband. Landon accompanied the expedition as special correspondent of the 'Times'. Dispatched on the orders of Lord Curzon, Viceroy of India, and prompted by the Russian presence in Tibet, the Tibet Frontier Commission was officially instructed to establish diplomatic relations with the government of Tibet and to resolve the dispute over the border between Tibet and British-held Sikkim. Escorted by a large military force led by Brigadier-General J.R.L. Macdonald, the expedition amounted to a de facto invasion.

        Autograph postcard signed to Edward Deacon Girdlestone

      Wimborne, 1905. Wallace, Alfred Russel (1823-1913). Autograph postcard signed to Edward Deacon Girdlestone (1829-92). Broadstone, Wimborne, Oct. 31, 1905. 90 x 115 mm. Faint foxing but fine otherwise. From Alfred Russel Wallace, co-creator with Darwin of the theory of evolution by natural selection, to socialist clergyman and author Edward Deacon Girdlestone, discussing Wallace’s recently published My Life (1905): "Thanks for your card. I intended at first to give a longer account of Owen’s work, but was afraid it would be out of place. It is astonishing how many people have never heard of him; and very few indeed have read his own “Life” with its Supplementary Vol. of confirmatory Reports, Documents &c. I have been trying ever since I read it two years ago to get a copy but it is very rare. I wish the Fabians would reprint it, & I think Chapman & Hall would not object. Yours truly, A. R. Wallace." Wallace is referring here to British industrialist and social reformer Robert Owen (1771-1858), one of the founders of utopian socialism, whom Wallace discussed at length in My Life. In his note to Girdlestone Wallace mentions Owen’s Life of Robert Owen Written by Himself (1857-58), the second volume of which is subtitled “A supplementary appendix to the first volume . . . containing series of reports, addresses, memorials, and other documents referred to in that volume, 1808-1820” (no further volumes were published). “Fabians” refers to the Fabian Society, the influential British socialist organization (est. 1884) that founded Britain’s Labour Party and the London School of Economics. Wallace became a socialist in 1875, supporting land reform and other progressive causes; he also emulated Owen in embracing spiritualism in his later years.

        The Woggle-Bug Book

      Reilly & Britton Co, Chicago 1905 - color illustrations (by Ike Morgan), 48p. Paper covered boards backed in green cloth. First state cover with background field in gray-green. 39cm. Corner reattached on front; the covers are otherwise intact but with some staining, spotting, wrinkling and other wear. A minor bit of gnawing on bottom edge and Contents generally sound although there are a few edge tears, a bit of soiling and some minor offsetting. The corner of the title-page is discolored where the corner of the cover had been detached. Now protected in a green cloth-covered clamshell box with a color photocopy of the title-page mounted on front. Woggle-Bugs apparently did not appear in any of the standard published Oz books. Their existence was revealed by Baum in "Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz, a weekly series of 27 stories that appeared in various Sunday newspapers in 1904 which were not collected and published as a book until 2009. Our book recounts the non-Oz adventures of Mr. H. M. Woggle-Bug after he becomes separated from his companions. See Bibliographia Oziana, by Greene and Hanff at pages 78-80 (in the Revised 1988 edition) for more about this book and detail as to how copies with this gray-green background field were established as the 1st State contrary to earlier thinking.

      1905 - JOPLIN, Scott. Eugenia. Chicago: Will Rossiter, 1905. Quarto, original wrappers; pp. 8. $1800.First edition of the score for this popular rag.African-American composer Scott Joplin is the most prominent of the ragtime composers of the Missouri school, which flourished around 1900. After suffering a decline of popularity in the 1920s connected with the spread of recorded music-Ragtime’s popularity directly related to the ability of amateur musicians to purchase the sheet music and perform it at home-Ragtime was recognized in the second half of the 20th century as a supremely American musical form. “Ragtime now appears widely in concert programmes, film scores, and elsewhere in American life. This revival virtually took the form of a craze in the late 1960s and early 1970s and, before subsiding, had established ragtime in the view of music historians as the first clear fusion, and perhaps the most successful, of America’s salient musical features” (New Grove 15:539). Evidence of tape repair to wrapper spine, very light edgewear. Spine expertly repaired at fold. An extremely good copy. First editions of Scott’s piano solos are extremely scarce.

        LANZHOU, CHINA: Original Unsigned Ink Drawing Titled in Pencil on Verso:] . bei Lantschou.

      1905 - Ca. 1905. Ink drawing on thick paper ca. 23x35,5 cm (9x14 in.). Recently matted, with some repair of marginal chipping and one repaired tear in margin, but overall in good condition. This well executed ink drawing shows a temple complex near Lanzhou. Lanzhou "is the capital and largest city of Gansu Province in Northwest China." (Wikipedia). This ink drawing was created by an artist under Filchner's direction after a photograph made by Filchner enroute to Tibet on his 1903-5 "expedition to Tibet to carry out geomagnetic and topographical surveys on the high plateau. In addition to its scientific work the expedition carried out a significant intelligence-gathering role and was contemporaneous with similar missions by Francis Younghusband and others" (Howgego, 1850-1940 Polar Regions etc., F6).

        Ist die Trägheit eines Körpers von seinem Energieinhalt abhängig?" in Annalen der Physik Band 18, No. 13, Heft 3, 1905, p. 639

      FIRST EDITION OF EINSTEIN'S GROUNDBREAKING 1905 PAPER ANNOUNCING & EXPLAINING THE DERIVATION OF THE MOST FAMOUS EQUATION IN SCIENCE: E=mc2. FULL VOLUME WITH ORIGINAL WRAPS BOUND IN. No interior stamps; not ex-libris. Though by no means this simple, Einstein's here explores "the relationship between the loss of kinetic energy and the emission of radiation energy" and his equation "connects intangibility and tangibility and, by making them equivalent, joins them as one. Energy and mass are different and it is the speed of light that brings them together" (DSB IV, 323; Rigden, Einstein 1905, 117-118). 1905 is often referred to as Einstein's annus mirabilis, the year of miracles. This paper is one of a series of five "written and published within a few months of each other [and] represent[ing] one of the most astonishing outbursts of individual creativity in the history of science" (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 16). Without question, this paper contains Einstein first mention of the equation E=mc2, but it is interesting to note that while the meaning remains exactly the same, what Einstein initially wrote is: "If a body gives off the energy L in the form of radiation, its mass diminishes by L/C²." In 1923 when an English translation was published, Einstein's contemporary notation was modified to conform to that used in the 1920s (for example, the L Einstein used to denote energy was changed to E). Einstein's 'm = L/c2' became 'E=mc2'. "Einstein first realized that such an equation was implied by his new theory of relativity almost immediately after he had published his 1905 paper that established the theory" (ibid). The relation between inertial mass and energy fascinated him, and in the summer of 1905, Einstein wrote to the mathematician Conrad Habicht: "One more consequence of the paper on electrodynamics has also occurred to me. The principle of relativity, in conjunction with Maxwell's equations, requires that mass be a direct measure of the energy contained in a body; light carries mass with it. A noticeable decrease of mass should occur in the case of radium. The argument is amusing and seductive, but for all I know the Lord might be laughing over it and leading me around by the nose" (Stachel, Einstein's Miraculous Year, 117-118). Einstein wasn't quite sure he believed himself, but he continued his thinking and soon published his formulation of mass-energy equivalence - the most famous equation in science. Einstein begins the paper, often called 'the September paper' "by referring to the June paper. The 'results of an electrodynamics investigation,' wrote Einstein, 'lead to a very interesting conclusion:'" that the kinetic energy of a body contributes to the mass or inertia of that body" (Rigden, Einstein 1905, 116). Einstein shows "that the equations of relativity worked out in his previous paper implied that if a particle emitted light beams, an observer in motion with respect to that body would naturally observe a loss of energy by the body (equal to E), but would also observe a change in its mass, according to the relation E=mc2" (An Einstein Encyclopedia, 2). As he often did, Einstein connected his theoretical results with ways to test them. "Einstein concludes this paper by suggesting a possible test to determine whether energy and mass were related as he predicted. The radioactive element radium had been discovered by Marie Curie seven years earlier, in 1898. Since an atom of radium gives off energy in its radioactive-decay process and since that energy might well come at the expense of mass, Einstein suggested that it might be possible to test his result 'using bodies whose energy content is variable to a high degree (e.g., salts of radium). "Einstein's final sentence in the September paper considers the practical outcome of his theory: 'If the theory agrees with the facts, then radiation transmits inertia [mass] between emitting and absorbing bodies'" (Rigden, 118). CONDITION & DETAILS: Full volume complete with all original wraps and advertisements bound in. No library marks whatsoever. Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth. Annalen der Physik, Vierte Folge, Volume 18, viii, 1084 pages, including half-title. Complete with 8 plates. 8vo.
