        [Text in Cyrillic] Vpered [Forward]. Complete run of 18 issues [BOUND WITH] Proletarii [The Proletariat]. Complete run of 26 issues

      Zheneva: Rossiyskayah Sochial Demokraticheskaya Rabochaya Partiya, 1905. First Edition. Full run of Lenin's (irregularly) weekly political newspaper Vpered (January-May, 1905), bound with its successor Proletarii (May-November, 1905), both published by the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party in Geneva in 1905. Printed in the same format as Lenin's former news outlet, Iskra, which began publication in 1900 in Leipzig and Munich (and later Geneva), from where it was illegally smuggled into Russia. Lenin left the editorial staff in 1904 after the paper fell into the hands of the opposing faction with the Party, the Mensheviks. He went on to found Vpered as a continuation of the still-extant Iskra, albeit returning to the original Bolshevik platform. Consequently, all three newspapers are near-identical in format, the latter two, however, with the statement at the upper right-hand corner: "Proletarii Vsekh' Stran' Soedinyaytes!" ("All the Proletarians of the Country Unite!"). Of the authors who contributed to these two publications, possibly the most prominent was Maxim Gorky, the founder of Socialist realism and a close associate of Lenin. 44 tabloid-format issues (44cm.) bound together in slightly later marbled boards backed with black cloth, private rubber-stamped library labels to upper cover and spine foot; text printed in triple column. At head of title of Vpered: "En Avant"; at head of title of Proletarii: "Le Proletaire." Boards rubbed, all else Very Good and sound despite fragile (thought not brittle) paper stock. Old, faint rubberstamp of the "Archiv Bunda" throughout.

        13 Illustrationen zu einem literarischen Stoff.

      - 13 Lithographien, auf Japanbütten, sämtlich monogrammiert „R.Gr.". Unterschiedliche Formate zwischen 10,5:9 cm und 26:16,5 cm. Sämtlich verso von fremder Hand mit Bleistift bezeichnet „GRO, III, 110". Vermutlich ein Hinweis darauf, daß es sich um Arbeiten aus dem künstlerischen Nachlaß Großmanns handelt. Die Lithographien, die in Probedrucken vorliegen, zeigen figürliche Szenen, meist Paare sowie einen Titelblattentwurf. Nach einem Studium an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie ging Großmann 1905-1914 nach Paris, wo er Schüler von L. Simon (1861-1945) war und freundschaftliche Kontakte zu L. Feininger (1881-1955) und H. Matisse (1869-1954) unterhielt. Anschließend verbrachte er einige Jahre in Berlin; zahlreiche Reisen erneut nach Paris, nach Schweden, in die Schweiz und nach Italien schlossen sich an. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Berlin lehrte er an der Kunstakademie, wurde jedoch 1934 aus politischen Gründen entlassen. Großmann gilt neben Emil Orlik (1870-1932) als der bedeutendste deutsche Graphiker der 20er Jahre.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Prag, 17. III. [1905]. - 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Charakteristisch markiges Schreiben des noch nicht 21-jährigen Jusstudenten an einen Verleger: "Sehr geehrter Herr, ich erhielt gestern Ihre Zuschrift, in der Sie mir mittheilten, daß mein Buch 'Entwicklung' eben geprüft wird. Hiezu gestatte ich mir noch folgende Bemerkungen: In letzter Zeit wurden abermals einige der in meinem Buch enthaltenen Novellen von bedeutenden Zeitschriften angenommen. So erhalte ich z. B. soeben die Annahme der 'Gegenwart' betr. meiner Skizze 'Warum sang der Vogel?' In der Jugend sind bisher drei meiner Skizzen erschienen (innerhalb 1 Jahres!) Insgesamt sind von den 15 Novellen meines Buches 8 schon in Zeitschriften gedruckt; die größern, sensationellen allerdings sind noch nicht veröffentlicht. Aus dem Erfolge, den ich bei Zeitschriften, in Vorlesungen etc. bereits errungen habe, schließe ich wohl berechtigt auf den weit größern Erfolg meines Buches, das bes. in den zwei letzten Novellen einen vollkommenen Umsturz der jetzigen Ästhetik und Ethik darstellt. Wie ich Ihnen schon mitgeteilt habe, wurde ich auch von philosophischen Seminarkreisen zur Veröffentlichung meiner Ansichten im Zusammenhang aufgefordert. Ich kann also wohl sagen, daß das Erscheinen meines Buches ein Bedürfnis befriedigen würde. Durch den Einfluß meines Freundes Dr. Salus, dessen Urteil allererst die Überzeugung vom Werte meiner Arbeit in mir erzeugt hat, und durch andere Verbindungen hoffe ich auch den materiellen Erfolg meines Werkes sichergestellt zu haben. Da dies überdies meine erste Buchveröffentlichung ist, werde ich Ihre Bedingungen, wenn sie nur billig sind, gern annehmen. In Erwartung baldiger Rückäußerung / hochachtend / Max Brod". Brods Novellensammlung erschien unter dem Titel "Tod den Toten!" im Umfang von 11 Novellen 1906 bei Juncker in Stuttgart - seine erste selbständige Publikation. Im Folgejahr brachte der Verlag vier weitere Geschichten unter dem Titel "Experimente" heraus. Schon seit 1902 war Brod mit Franz Kafka befreundet. - Minimaler Buchstabenverlust durch zeitgenössische Lochung.

        XINING, CHINA: Original Signed (Illegibly) Ink Drawing Titled in Pencil:] Haupttor von Si-Ning-Fu [Main Gate of Xining].

      1905 - Ca. 1905. Ink drawing on thick paper ca. 16x26 cm (6 ½ x 10 ½ in). Recently matted, with a minor tear of blank margin, but overall in very good condition. This well executed ink drawing shows the main gate at Xining, China. "Xining has a history of over 2,100 years and was a chief commercial hub on the Hexi Corridor caravan route to Tibet, handling especially timber, wool and salt in ancient times. The trade along the Hexi Corridor was part of a larger trade corridor along the Northern Silk Road, whose use was intensified in the 1st century BC after efforts by the Han dynasty to control this route" (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).

        William Caxton

      Chicago: privately printed for the Caxton Club, 1905. Limited edition.. A bright and clean copy in near fine condition.. Pp. 118; 25 full page plates, all with tissue guards. Publisher's original one-quarter red cloth over dark gray paper-covered boards, spine with printed paper label, top page edge rough-trimmed, the other edges are untrimmed, lg 4to (12 1/4 x 9 3/4 inches, 305 x 240 mm). Presents the life and works of William Caxton, the first Englishman to work as a printer and the first to introduce a printing press into England, which he did in 1476. Caxton was also the first English retailer of printed books; the first book he printed was Chaucer's 'The Canterbury Tales.' As preface to the volume states: "A life of Caxton must of necessity be little more than an account of his work. As in the case of the great inventor Guttenberg, only a few documents are connected with his name." The volume is divided into seven chapters, beginning with 'Caxton's Early Life' and ending with 'Caxton's Death.' The remaining chapters present all of Caxton's printed works in detail. The edition was limited to 252 copies printed on American hand-made paper of which 240 copies were offered for sale; after printing the type was distributed. The colophon shows it was privately printed for the Caxton Club by R. R. Donnelley at the Lakeside Press in Chicago. This is a special association copy - at the beginning of the volume the following announcement is tipped in: "This copy was presented to R. Hunter Middleton on the occasion of the April 24, 1968 meeting of the Caxton Club with the appreciation of the members and guests whose signatures appear below. The announcement is signed by 74 members and guests of the Caxton Club. R. Hunter Middleton was the owner of the Cherryburn Press that published many limited editions, many with the woodblock prints of Thomas Bewick.
