        Jugendstil Classic- Preissig] Byl Jeden Domecek

      Dedictvi Komenskeho [1905], Prague - Bound in the original scarce pictorial card wrappers (gray/beige with light blue design by Preissig. Twelve superb full-page color zincographs by Preissig, the renowned Czech typographer, printmaker, designer, illustrator and teacher. Very rare first edition, seldom found in the wrappers, of the famous Czech children's book. The little text portrays the transience of being on the bottom of a somewhat morbid food chain: from which the cat eats, to oxen, which serve men for a feast, which are finally buried. Alfred Langer writes to the Jugendstil artist Vojtech Preissig: "According to his motto of the" full-blooded bookgraphist, " he demanded a synthesis of craftsmanship and art. The harmony of writing and book decoration was regarded as the most desirable goal. "(Langer, Jugendstil und Buchkunst, p. 175). Near fine with minimal corner wear. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Amica Poème Dramatique en deux Actes de Paul Bérel Version Rythmique Française de Paul Collin Version rythmique Italienne de Giovani Targioni-Tozzetti Partition Piano et Chant transcrite par Adriano Ariani... Edizione Italiana. [Piano-vocal score]

      Paris: Choudens [PN A.C. 13,315], [1905]. Folio. Half textured maroon cloth with textured maroon cloth boards, titling gilt to spine, with original publisher's upper wrapper with an illustration after an etching by [?]R. Aguet printed by Ch. Wittmann, Paris, bound in. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto cast list and table of contents, verso blank), 183, [i] (blank) pp. Music engraved by Baudon and printed in Paris by E. Dupré. With the composer's autograph inscription signed in black ink to baritone Riccardo Stracciari, who performed the part of Rinaldo in the Italian production of the work, to upper portion of title: "All' indimenticabile 'Rinaldo' al Carissimo Amico Riccardo Stracciari con affetto e con ammirazione P Mascagni" and dated Rome, May 1905. Price of "15 f. Net" printed to upper wrapper. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, and bumped. Upper wrapper slightly worn, stained, and soiled; occasional light soiling to margins; several leaves partially detached at lower inner margins; pp. 135-136 torn at lower corner, slightly affecting notation. Together with: An original role portrait photograph of Stracciari and Biancapelli as Rinaldo and Amica, ca. 203 x 158 mm. Slightly worn; two minor annotations in blue ink and remnants of former mount to verso. Probable First Edition of the first Italian version. Amica, to a libretto by French publisher Paul de Choudens (Bérel was a pseudonym), was first performed in Monte Carlo at the Théâtre du Casino on March 16, 1905, and was an immediate success. The Italian premiere (with an Italian libretto by Mascagni's close collaborator, Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti) took place on May 13, 1905, with Riccardo Stracciari (1875-1955) as Rinaldo. Mascagni conducted both performances. It was the composer's only opera with a French libretto. "Stracciari's mellow, velvety voice, coloured and resonant over its whole range, with an extended and penetrating upper register, made him, between 1905 and 1915, the rival of Titta Ruffo and Pasquale Amato. His repertory included all the great baritone roles and among the dramatic parts he preferred those in Il trovatore, Rigoletto and Aida. But, thanks to a technique characteristic of the best traditions of the 19th century, he excelled in works which allowed him to display his courtly enunciation, smooth singing, elegant phrasing and musical delicacy." Rodolfo Celletti in Grove Music Online. A notable association copy.

        Autograph letter signed.

      o. O. , 6. IV. 1905. - 8vo. 1 p. To the French operatic bass Félix Vieuille (1872-1953) who sang for more than four decades with the Opéra-Comique in Paris during the first half of the twentieth century about his role in Pelléas et Mélisande: "l’art d’être grand père" de notre national poëte Victor Hugo, n’en prenez aucun souci, car vous êtes le plus grand et le plus profondément humain des "grands pères" ( ). Laissez-moi vous en remercier une fois de plus et vous serez affectueusement les mains ( ). - He created roles in numerous world premieres, most notably portraying Arkel in the original production of Claude Debussy's Pelléas et Mélisande in 1902 which he went on to sing 208 times at that house. He possessed a rich voice and a solid technique which helped sustain his career for a long time. His voice is preserved on a number of recordings made on the Odeon, Lyrophon, and Beka labels.

        The Game

      Macmillan, New York 1905 - First edition, second issue. With plate illustrations and decorations by Henry Hutt and T.C. Lawrence. 182, [6 (ads)] pp. 8vo. Inscribed to London's close friend and early admirer, Cloudesley Johns. First edition, inscribed by London: "Dear Cloudesley - Who is ethically disinclined to my flimflamming a capitalist society out of a dollar and a half, and who, therefore, as a good socialist must make explanation to another good socialist, namely, Jack London Glen Ellen, July 17/05."An excellent association copy of Jack London's boxing novel. According to London, Cloudesley Johns was the first person who ever wrote him about his work, offering praise of the stories "To the Man on Trail" and "The White Silence" in the January and February 1899 issues of the Overland. The resulting friendship lasted until London's death (see The Book of Jack London, 1899, p. 277ff). "If Jack had no mentor but himself, Cloudesley had Jack London - a pugnacious mentor who seldom pulled his punches. Jack's advice was born of his own experience and to Johns, as to many other aspiring writers, he gave of it freely. They met on several occasions. During London's writing of The Sea Wolf in 1903, Johns came up to Piedmont and the two men sailed up to the mouth of the Sacramento River on Jack's sloop Spray. There they played chess, swam, shot ducks and mudhens, fished, talked and wrote. 'The more I see of Cloudesley, the more I like him,' Jack wrote. 'He is honest and loyal, young and fresh, understands the discipline of a boat, and is a good cook, to say nothing of being a good-natured and genial companion'" (Walker and Reesman, p. 15). BAL 11886; Woodbridge 36; Hartley 1240 Original green-gray pictorial cloth, decorated in white and brown and lettered in red and gilt, t.e.g., illustrated endpapers.

        To Jerusalem through the lands of Islam among Jews, Christians, and Moslems. Preface by Prince de Polignac

      Chicago: Open Court Publishing, 1905. First edition, 8vo, pp. viii, 325, [1], [4] ads; photographiic frontispiece illustration and numerous photographic plates throughout; errata slip tipped in at contents page; original green cloth stamped in gilt and silver on spine, the front cover lettered in black and with photographic paper onlay, t.e.g.; extremities worn, with spine ends chipped and fraying and the spine stamping faded and worn; the boards somewhat soiled and scraped; overall good and sound, and a unique copy. A previous owner has penned on the front cover, "Rare book, by my friend Madame Loyson of Paris. D.W." and laid-in is a 4-page ALs from Madame Loyson to an unnamed correspondent, perhaps "D.W."? Writing on "23 Nov. 03" on the letterhead of "Alliance des Femmes Orientales et Occidentales," as the president of the Alliance, Madame Loyson requests assistance in securing a publisher for the manuscript recounting her travels in the Middle East and Africa in 1894-1896. The author asks her correspondent to hawk her book in New York, but adds, "As there is a great deal of Unitarianism (for Moslems are simply--but grandly--nothing else but Unitarian Christians--& with more faith... in Jesus than many of Channing's Followers!) perhaps Boston would be better than N. York." Madame Loyson (the American heiress Emilie Jane Butterfield Merriman) traveled with her husband, the popular former Carmelite priest known as Pere Hyacinthe Loyson (1827-1912), who was excommunicated from the Catholic church for his protest against the doctrine of papal infallibility forwarded at the Vatican Council of 1870. Madame Loyson also writes briefly of their son, Paul (1873-1921), the successful author, lecturer, and playwright.

        Collection of Christmas cards by Georgie Gaskin

      1905 - A collection of nine color Christmas cards for the years 1897 through 1905, designed by Georgie Gaskin for Laurence W. Hodson and his family. The cards feature delicate vining borders intertwined with banners that extend the Christmas greeting for that year. The subjects of the cards include the Hodson children at play and nativity scenes, and one contains a calendar for the year 1905. Five of the cards are folded and include printed Christmas greetings hand-lettered by Gaskin. Georgie Gaskin and her husband Arthur were heavily influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. Though Arthur Gaskin illustrated books, including The Shepheard's Calendar by the Kelmscott Press, the couple was more well known for their elegant handmade jewelry. Georgie designed the jewelry, which often featured elaborate flowering vines, a characteristic that can readily be seen in these Christmas card designs. The cards were previously held in mats and show some mat burn to the front side with adhesive on the back; a few have also been trimmed along one or more edges; otherwise, the items in this collection are in near fine condition.

        Russia.

      Philadelphia: The International Press,, 1905. Translated from the French, with an additional chapter upon the struggle for supremacy in the Far East by Florence MacIntyre Tyson. 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, Romanov coat of arms stamped on front covers in gilt, top edge gilt. With the cloth-backed dust jackets and original slipcase lettered in gilt. With photogravure frontispieces and 48 photogravure illustrations with captioned tissue guards. An excellent set in the dust jackets, slightly bumped at spine panel ends, lightly rubbed at extremities. A new edition of Gautier's account of his travels in Russia, first published in France in 1867 and first translated into English in 1874. Théophile Gautier (1811–1872) is best known as a literary critic and staunch defender of Romanticism, but he was also widely travelled and published travel writings for various parts of the world. His account of Russia provides a detailed look at Russian society, culture and history in the late nineteenth century. The book was published as the 1905 Russian Revolution was ongoing, and the final additional chapter by the translator outlines the debacle of the Russo-Japanese War and the prospect of reform of Russia's autocratic government. This is a highly attractive edition, well bound and illustrated, in the scarce original dust jackets and slipcase.

        Original artwork for a Christmas card by Georgie Gaskin.

      1896-1905. 5ff. An original pen & ink drawing and two proofs, one hand-colored and one printed, plus a final printed copy of a Christmas card designed by Georgie Gaskin for Laurence W. Hodson and his family. The card is for the year 1896 and depicts Santa Claus, heavily laden with sacks of toys, bestowing gifts upon two of the Hodsons' children. The drawing is signed "G.C. Gaskin," and it and the hand-colored proof have her pencilled notes at the bottom. Also included is a hand-colored rough illustration of three children at play that went unused. Georgie Gaskin and her husband, Arthur were heavily influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. Though Arthur Gaskin illustrated books, including The Shepheard's Calendar by the Kelmscott Press, the couple was more well known for their elegant handmade jewelry. Georgie designed the jewelry, which often featured elaborate patterns and intricate detailing, a characteristic that can readily be seen in this Christmas card design. The original drawing and hand-colored proof have a few spots of discoloration, not affecting the images, and the printed proof and extra hand-colored illustration are creased along the margins; the printed card was previously held in a mat and shows some mat burn to the front side with adhesive on the back; otherwise, the items in this collection are in near fine condition.

        1905 Letters of Charles Lamb. Douglas Fairbanks Jr provenance. Private press, Limited Edition

      Bibliophile Society, Boston 1905 - Limited edition, private press printing of Charles Lamb's letters, with the provenance of the noted Hollywood actor Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Volume one is oversized and contains many facsimile reproductions of Lamb's letters blown up and in fold-out format. About The Literature - Special effort was taken by the Bibliophile Society to gather Lamb's letters, thus this is a first edition of this specific gathering of his correspondences, and may contain letters not otherwise reproduced. "Charles Lamb (1775 –1834) was an English essayist, poet, and antiquarian, best known for his Essays of Elia and for the children's book Tales from Shakespeare, co-authored with his sister, Mary Lamb. Friends with such literary luminaries as Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, and William Hazlitt, Lamb was at the centre of a major literary circle in England. He has been referred to by E. V. Lucas, his principal biographer, as 'the most lovable figure in English literature'." Provenance - The bookplate of Douglas Fairbanks Jr., the noted American actor and decorated World War II naval officer, decorates the pastedown of each volume. Physical Attributes - Printed by the Riverside Press for the Bibliophile Society of Boston in 1905, and limited to 470 copies. Printed on handmade Dutch paper. Page edges are deckled and the top edges are uncut (still). Volume one measures 37 x 23 x 2 cm, folio. 19 facsimile reproductions of his letters, enlarged (and in some cases fold-out), as discussed and printed in the following volumes. Also includes an introduction to the work. Volumes 2 to 5 are the bulk of the work. The letters are printed and discussed. These volumes are in quarto and measure 23 x 16.5 cm.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Göttingen, 20. III. 1905. - 1½ SS. 8vo. Sehr geehrter Herr! Können Sie beiliegenden, allerdings etwas umfangreichen Artikel für den 'Kunstwart' gebrauchen. Er ist satirischen Inhalts; welche Tendenz er verfolgt, werden Sie sofort beim Lesen entdecken. Ich behalte mir übrigens vor, im Falle Ihrer Annahme einige Schärfen zu mildern; ich habe das noch nicht gethan, weil von der Redaction möglicher Weise auch einige Wünsche in dieser Hinsicht geäußert werden möchten, u. ich mir die doppelte Arbeit ersparen wollte. Bitte, mir den Artikel nicht nach Göttingen zu schicken, da ich schon in den nächsten Tagen abreise, und mir Briefe nicht nachgesandt werden [.].
