        CHANSONS DE L'ANCIENNE FRANCE. Imagées par W. Graham Robertson.

      Paris, Pour les Bibliophiles Indépendants, Chez H. Floury 1905 - CHANSONS DE L'ANCIENNE FRANCE. Imagées par W. Graham Robertson. Paris, Pour les Bibliophiles Indépendants, Chez H. Floury, 1905 (4)-IV-31 feuillets 34 x 24 cm environ, en feuilles, couverture imprimée en lithographie (premier plat) avec grattage dans le titre en marge extérieure. L'ensemble est illustré de : 1 vignette de titre aquarellée, 30 vignettes aquarellées (2 vignettes par chanson) et 15 vignettes en noir (verso du dernier feuillet de chaque chanson). Exemplaire à relier, en feuilles, prévoir un montage sur onglet compte tenu de l'épaisseur très importante du papier. Le recto du faux-titre est bruni par décharge d'un papier acide anciennement apposé dessus. Sinon intérieur frais. Superbe coloris à la main. TIRAGE RARE A 150 EXEMPLAIRES SUR PAPIER A LA FORME D'ARCHES (TRÈS ÉPAIS).Très rare ouvrage illustré, publié par les soins et sous la direction d'Octave Uzanne pour les Bibliophiles indépendants, achevé d'imprimer sur les presses des imprimeries Gérardin à Porchefontaine-Versailles, le 15 novembre 1904. Il s'agit du dernier ouvrage publiée par cette société totalement inféodée à Octave Uzanne. Octave Uzanne avait créé les Bibliophiles indépendants pour s'extirper des obligations que lui avaient causé les Bibliophiles contemporains (1889-1894). "Société de Bibliophiles Indépendants, hospitalière, de plain-pied avec toutes les convenances et n'opprimant la liberté d'action d'aucun de ses membres." Et l'auteur du manifeste de préciser que "éditeur responsable des Livres" qu'il publie, il reste "maître absolu" de ses choix et décisions soit littéraires, soit artistiques. C'est parler clair. Plus de règlement, plus de voeux - séculiers -, plus de Parlement et partant plus de parlotes oiseuses ! Un seul chef pour prendre le vent, agir ! Et si son orientation séduit, qu'on le suive. Cet essai de liberté appliquée à la bibliophilie n'engage que son auteur. Il compte, chaque année, publier au nombre de 200 exemplaires "deux ou trois ouvrages presque toujours inédits, de formats variés mais non excessifs, dans une heureuse harmonie moyenne et d'une épaisseur modérée de la plaquette au volume mixte." (Pierre Dauze, Revue Biblio-Iconogaphique, mars 1896). Ce volume contient 15 anciennes chansons du Québec (Ancienne France) : Cécilia - La belle rose - A la Claire Fontaine - Le Chant d'Isabeau - Ah, qui me passera le bois ? - Petite Jeanneton - Digue-dindaine - En roulant ma boule - Au Jardin de mon père - Gai lon la, gai le rosier - D'où viens-tu ? - L'Assemblée d'amour - Je me fais maîtresse - Joli coeur de rose - La fille du roi d'Espagne. TRÈS BEL ET RARE OUVRAGE. (à relier). Le prix tient compte que l'ouvrage n'est pas relié. Il pourra cependant être très avantageusement conservé en feuilles sous portfolio fait sur mesure.

Old folds from mailing with a small tear at the edge of one fold, very good or better. James writes that because of the illness of his daughter and his son Harry he must postpone a meeting, and ".it may be that the crowding of duties in the next two weeks (after which I leave for California) will make the whole pleasant prospect fall through. In any case I think that I will not try to make up any party, but simply come myself, or ourselves." James was an important American philosopher and pioneer psychologist. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Some Old French and English Ballads edited by Robert Steele.

One of 200 copies printed in red and black in Brook and music type on Arches Eragny watermarked paper. 8vo., in a simple and handsome chestnut brown binding by Katherine Adams with her signature in gilt at the rear, spine with raised bands lettered in gilt, all edges gilt, gilt border on the turn-ins, housed in the original foldover box of grey linen. A beautiful copy. An early example of Katherine Adams binding who was a pupil of Sarah Prideaux and worked for a time with Douglas Cockerell, although she was really self taught as this training only lasted for 4 months. She began binding on her own in 1901 receving her first commission from William Morris and bound for the greatest collectors and printers of her day. Her bindings are known for their techincial skill and the excellence of her gilding. Like Lucien Pissarro, Steele was a follower of Morris and had a passionate interest in manuscripts, the history of printing and early printed music. He produced the work in this book as a commission for Lucien. With the label of Philip Duschnes the noted New York dealer.

        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.

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.

They had been his Dublin, New Hampshire, neighbors in the summer of 1905, and again in the summer of 1906. 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…"""

      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.

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. Armed conflicts erupted, in one instance resulting in the massacre of hundreds of poorly armed and poorly trained Tibetan soldiers, who proved to be no match for a professional army equipped with modern rifles and Maxim machine guns. Some five thousand Tibetans lost their lives as opposed to only five British casualties.

        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.

Royal octavo, contemporary full light brown crushed morocco, boards gilt-decorated in Louis XV style, raised bands, green morocco doublures, frame-like ornamentation in same style with dark blue and pearl-gray inlays and gilt tooling, gray silk endpapers, marbled flyleaves, all edges gilt. Housed in custom chamois-lined marbled slipcase. $3000.Deluxe limited illustrated edition, number 5 of only 150 copies, with 16 delicate color etchings (in double suite) and an original signed watercolor, all by renowned French illustrator Adolphe Lalauze. Beautifully bound by Chambolle Duru.Combining fictional narrative with observations on art and architecture, La Petite Maison is the story of a woman who mistakes good taste for good intentions in a country house outside of Paris. Each etching is accompanied by a color proof, and a separate suite of the etchings is bound in at the rear. “It was in France that the [late nineteenth century] revival of etching was the most fruitful. Adolphe Lalauze… is among the most prominent of the etchers who must be remembered for their illustrated books. Also in France, there developed the custom of issuing éditions de luxe for limited circulation with sets of etched illustrations in two or more states” (Harthan, The History of the Illustrated Book, 228). “Superb bindings of this sort were executed in such quantity that they came to be largely disregarded during the decades when books of the Belle Epoque were out of favor… books so bound have increased in price by several hundred percent [since 1970]. Yet it may be argued that they are still substantially undervalued when compared with bindings of other eras” (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, 376-77). With original paper wrappers and spine bound in. Text in French. Expert repair to a rear signature. An elegant production in fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        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).

        The Gorham Cocktail Book

      Gorham Mfg Company New York (1905) - First Edition. Original limp tan leather, blindstamped at front cover, 5" by 3 1/2", 48 pages. Fabulous little volume of cocktail recipes, one of only two recipe books to include the Liberal Cocktail. Two recipes are food items: Clam Cocktail and the Oyster Cocktail. Three of them are drinks that are technically not cocktails: Chocolate Cocktail (a flip), Coffee Cocktail (flip), and the Soda Cocktail (a soft-drink). The other forty-five recipes are true cocktails. "No cobblers, Collinses, coolers, fixes, fizzes, highballs, juleps, punches or sours in it. The majority of today's so-called 'craft cocktails' (most of them actually sours or other short punches) would not have passed muster to get into the Gorham Cocktail Book." [Andrew Willett, Elemental Mixology] A lovely and scarce title. Very Good, front pastedown paper has mostly detached from inside cover, couple of 'drip' spots at covers. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
