        Small archive of correspondence with Sylvia Lynd

      six autograph letters (one incomplete) and one postcard (approximately 1,000 words) 1905-13[?] and n.d., Dublin - An intimate series of letters suggesting that Colum may have had an affair with [the then] Sylvia Dryhurst, who became a prominent Irish nationalist poet, essayist, short-story writer and novelist. The earliest (26 Rugby Road, Ranelagh, Dublin: 2 September 1904) begins: "My dear Miss Sylvia, So the respectibilities [sic] are casting a shadow on you. I'm so sorry." He goes on to say that J. B. Yeats is painting his portrait, and that he is "having supper with Countess Markavicz [sic] to-night, but I am sure it will be tame and respectable compared with a supper of my recollection." "I wish I could send you the sunshine and the great spaces and clouds of Ireland. Do not let the respectables quite crush you, and do not forget to come to Erinn again." The postcard (Oxford: 24 November 1906) arranges to meet in London: "My dear Miss Sylvie, I am leaving Oxford this morning. I've had a good time. Fancy I've dined with the Dons of St. Johns - the undergrads below us . . . I get to London Sat night. Gower St 9 p.m. Good-bye till then. Colm" A letter of 28 September 1906 appears to end with tear-stains (crocodile or otherwise): "Now be good to me and write soon. I'm not suffering from a broken heart but I'm very much attached to you (that's not the antithesis I'm tended to make, however, I'll let it pass). Good-bye Colm". The incomplete letter (n.p., n.d. but 1909 or after) has crude pencil drawings of horses to verso, where it is also docketed by Maire Glaster: "Part of a Padraic Colum apology. Perhaps the beginning was destroyed by S.", asks for forgiveness: " . . . to write to you c/o of [sic] Mr. Lynd. Perhaps Dublin is exceptionally scandal-making. A card address [sic] to me there vexed Mrs Robinson & made it very uncomfortable for Miss Maguire. She was not well at the time. All this seems very trivial now. But it was not trivial then. I saw red & struck out shamefully & unjustly. There is no excuse to be made. I did a very ill thing & one that I will regret. I ask pardon, but I do not expect that I can receive it. Padraic Colum". [Together with] Early holograph draft of a 12-line poem (in an envelope postmarked 1 October 1904) later published in variant, shorter (8-line) forms as "The Wayfarer", (in "Poetry" magazine, ed. Harriet Monroe, Chicago, April 1915); "Christ the Companion" (in "Eyes of Youth", London, 1910) and as `L'Envoi' to "Verses for Alfeo Faggi's Stations of the Cross" (Chicago, 1926). [Together with] presumably unsent letter from Sylvia Dryhurst (two pages, in pencil, 11 Downshire Hill, Hampstead [London]; 28 March 1906): "My dear Padraic, I have written you a good many very silly letters. When I wrote them I told myself I should never feel ashamed of writing them. I find that I do but I should be more ashamed of writing you more & so I have made up my mind to tell you this. I don't feel so ashamed as to ask you to burn them, do as you please about that . . . Do you remember you told me you knew I was fickle & I stoutly denied it of course. Either I am fickle or too young to know my own mind - that is certain - probably both. Reproach me if you feel reproachful - but confess, isn't it rather a relief to you? I have never felt you to be quite serious since a certain letter you wrote me, in January I think . . . Oh Padraic make me in love with you again, my dear friend. . . P.s. I don't quite want you altogether to forgive me." [Together with] two original photographs of Colum, one with photographer's monogram 'AR' in the bottom left-hand corner, 5 x 6cm, printed on a piece of 14.5 x 23cm art paper, signed 'Padraic MacCormac Colm' beneath the image; the other, 9 x 11cm, docketed by Maire Gaster to verso. The letters folded for mailing and the whole in very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        MORDEKHAI 'IMANUEL NOAH [AND] MASAOT B'ANGLIAH, TSFARAT, SEFARD, U'V'ARTZOT BARBARIA

      Warsaw: Achiasaf Society(1905). 1st Edition [and] 1st Hebrew edition. Period boards with original cover mounted on front, 8vo, [66], 25 pages. 22 cm. In Hebrew. Two books published together. First Title is Mordekhai 'Imanuel Noah by Rabbi Max Raisin. Title translates to Mordecai Manuel Noah. Second title is Masaot by Mordecai Manuel Noah, the First Hebrew translation of Noah's famous "Travels in England, France, Spain and the Barbary States, in the years 1813-14 and 15." Publishing the work in Hebrew, in Eastern Europe, was a way to reach the wider Jewish world to tell the amazing story of Noah, probably the most powerful Jew in the Western Hemisphere of the early 19th Century. Both are published by the Achiasaf Society, a Hebrew language publisher founded by noted Zionist thinker Asher Zvi Hirsch Ginzberg, better known as Ahad Ha'Am. It contains a brief biography of American-Jewish statesman and proto-Zionist thinker, Mordecai Manuel Noah, and Noah's own accounts of his travels in England, France, Spain, and the Barbary Coast. (Today known as the Greater Maghreb. ) Noah, a journalist, playwright, politician, and lawyer, was one of the most prominent Jews of Early America, and served as Consul to Kingdom of Tunis (modern Tunisia) under President James Madison. When then-Secretary of State James Monroe removed Noah from Noah's post, citing his religion as an "obstacle", it sparked an outcry among American Jews and non-Jews alike, with Noah receiving letters of support from John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. Discouraged from pursuing government positions, Noah continued his career as a newspaperman in New York, founding and editing numerous publications there. Unfortunately, Noah is probably best remembered for his ambitious but failed attempt to establish "Ararat, A Jewish City of Refuge" on Grand Island in Upstate New York. Noah's ardent belief that Jews would flock to his settlement to escape international persecution proved false, and "Ararat" never came to be. Masaot was written in 1814, before Noah's removal from his position of Consul, and ten years before the failure of Ararat. His biography is written by Rabbi Max Raisin, prominent early 20th-century historian of Jewish America. Inscribed at rear to the Noah Benevolent Society in 1936 "Upon the 85th anniversary of the death of Mordecai Manuel Noah."SUBJECT(S) Jewish politicians -- United States -- Biography -- Voyages and Travels. OCLC lists only 4 copies worldwide (NYPL, YU, HUC, and UPENN) Slight edgewear to cover. Paper beginning to yellow. Hinges starting. Otherwise Good Condition. Rare. (AMR-50-1A)

        The Birds of Tunisia: Being a History of the Birds found in the Regency of Tunis

      R.H. Porter, 1905. 2 vols: xxxii, 294; xviii, 410, 2 photogravure frontispieces, 15 hand col litho. plates by Gronvold, 2 photographic plates, 2 folding maps. roy. 8vo. HB. Very attractive set bound in cont. half morocco, marbled boards (a little rubbed and scuffed), teg. This is copy number 123 (of 250).. Edition limited to 250 numbered copies. Joseph Isaac Spadafora Whitaker (1850 – 1936) was a wealthy Sicilian-English ornithologist, archaeologist and sportsman. Although he had a number of interests, today he is best known for his work on the birds of Tunisia. In 1891 Whitaker joined the British Ornithologists' Union and over a period of ten years (1894–1904) visited Tunsia a number of times, building an outstanding collection of Tunisian birds, bird nests and eggs which he housed in a villa in the grounds of his home “Malfitano” in Palermo, Sicily. Some of Whitaker's Tunisian bird collection is now housed at the Natural History Museum, London. Whitaker states in the preface that “The object of the present work is chiefly to supply a want, which myself, and probably others, have felt, in the absence of any English publication which treats systematically of the birds to be found in the Regency of Tunis'. With a focus on the 365 species of birds found in Tunsia, the author notes ‘ I have thought it advisable, where possible, to allude to the occurrence of the various species also in Algeria and Marocco, as likewise, in some cases, in Tripoli and in the Mediterranean basin generally'. The work is illustrated with 15 fine hand coloured lithographic plates drawn by the Danish bird illustrator Henrik Grönvold (1858 –1940), as the author states ‘ The colouring of some of the illustrations has been undertaken by Miss Dora Bowdler Sharpe, and bear testimony to that lady's fine touch; the remainder and greater pat have been carefully coloured by Mr. G. Edwards'. Nissen 983..

        FUNNY BUNNIES: ARTIST'S MANUSCRIPT WITH WATERCOLORS

      - PARKER,N. AND B. FUNNY BUNNIES: ARTIST'S MANUSCRIPT WITH WATERCOLORS. This is the rare original manuscript for the Parkers' book Funny Bunnies published in London by W. & R. Chambers circa 1905. This original is composed of a ring bound sketch book containing all of the original watercolors used in the book (including the covers), as well as paste-ups for each text page that are also generously illustrated in line. The art for the covers has been mounted onto a single sheet of grey paper to form the covers of the manuscript. Like the published book, it is oblong measuring 14" wide by 10 inches, slightly larger than the published book and except for a short crease on the cover it is in fine condition. The text in verse tells about the daily doings of a family of humanized bunnies that are portrayed in great detail with humor and affection. Aside from the text drawings and interesting publishing notations, there are 14 fabulous full page finished waterecolors that if sold separately would amount to much more than the price of the entire manuscript. Original work by the Parkers is ultra rare and this is a wonderful opportunity to own the complete work for a picture book by them.

        L'invasion de la mer. Le phare du bout du monde

      - Collection hetzel, Paris 1905, Grd. in-8 (18x27,5cm), 236pp. ; 204pp., relié. - illustrato collettiva Edition (e unica edizione di questo titolo) di George Roux 12 chromotypographies, off-nero testo e molte fotografie di Algeria (alcuni in colore). Cartone con un elefante nella gamma come vermiglio. Torna al faro. Secondo con palme nane supervisione e amaretto centrale. Bella piastra superiore, con buona oro lucido, ma piccole aree di scolorimento sui bordi. Secondo piatto bene, ma con alcune aree scure di sporco e le frontiere, in particolare il bit con aree sbiadite. Torna abbastanza bene, con una copertura superiore un po 'morbido, piccole aree scolorite. Un angolo con una curva, l'altra strofinato. Esemplare deformato avendo alcuni foxing. L'invasione del mare, è l'ultimo romanzo che Jules Verne potrebbe correggere le bozze, e sta accadendo in Tunisia e Algeria: progetto di un canale che avrebbe inondare parte del Sahara. Per quanto riguarda il faro alla fine del mondo, Jules Verne non basta rileggere ed è suo figlio Michael che ha portato una serie di modifiche al testo originale. L'azione si svolge in Sud America, a oriente del paese del fuoco, dove l'oceani Pacifico e Atlantico si incontrano. Vediamo sabotatori che ricordano romanzo omonimo di Stevenson. Entrambi i romanzi sono stati pubblicati per la prima volta, sia nel 1905. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale collective illustrée (et seule édition de ce titre) par George Roux de 12 chromotypographies, de hors-texte en noir et de nombreuses photographies de l'Algérie (certaines en couleurs). Cartonnage à un éléphant avec titre dans l'éventail rouge vermillon. Dos au phare. Second plat avec encadrement de palmettes et macaron central. Belle plaque supérieure, aux ors bien brillants, mais petites zones de décoloration sur les bordures. Second plat bien, mais avec quelques zones sombres de salissures et les bordures, notamment le mors portant des zones décolorées. Dos assez bien, avec une coiffe supérieure un peu molle, des petites zones décolorées. Un coin portant une pliure, les autres frottés. Exemplaire gauchi comportant quelques rares rousseurs. L'invasion de la mer, est le dernier roman dont Jules Verne ait pu corriger les épreuves, et se passe en Tunisie et en Algérie : projet d'un canal qui inonderait une partie du Sahara. Quant au Phare du bout du monde, Jules Verne n'en a justement pas corriger les épreuves et c'est son fils Michel qui a apporté un certain nombre de modifications au texte original. L'action se passe en Amérique du sud, à l'est de la terre de feu, là où le Pacifique et l'Atlantique se rencontrent. On y voit des pilleurs d'épaves qui font penser au roman de Stevenson du même nom. Ces deux romans ont paru pour la première fois tous les deux en 1905.

        Collection of Christmas cards, plus an original drawing by Georgie Gaskin

      1905 - 14ff. A collection of ten color Christmas cards for the years 1896 through 1905, designed by Georgie Gaskin for Laurence W. Hodson and his family. The printed versions of the cards are accompanied by an original drawing and two proofs, including one that is hand-colored, of the card for 1896 depicting Santa Claus, heavily laden with sacks of toys, bestowing gifts upon two of the Hodsons' children. The drawing is initialed by Gaskin, and it and the hand-colored proof have her pencilled notes at the bottom. Also included in the collection is a hand-colored rough illustration of three children at play that went unused. The color printed 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. Georgie Gaskin and her husband, Arthu 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 original drawing has a few spots of discoloration, not affecting the image; the printed cards were previously held in mats and show some mat burn to the front side with adhesive on the back; otherwise, the items in this collection are in near fine condition.

        Antarctica

      1905 - or Two Years amonst the ice of the South Pole.First U.S. edition. Large folding & 3 other maps, portrait frontispiece & 4 coloured plates, with numerous illustrations in the text. Large 8vo. Very good original green pictorial cloth, gilt, very minor wear to top and base of spine. xx, 608pp. London, for Hurst & Blackett and New York, the MacMillan Co. The Nordenskjold expedition was part of a three pronged geographical attack on the Antarctic continent devised at the International Geographical Congress of 1895. The others were those of Scott and Drygalski. Nordenskold's sector was to be the South Atlantic, and they achieved a great deal especially considering that they lost their ship ?Antarctic? to the ice, which left the party stranded in three groups over winter. The artist on board was Frank Stokes, an American. This copy has Nordenskjold's signature tipped in and bears the library stamps of the New York Mercantile Library, to which, it seems, it was presented. Rosove, 240. A2; Spence, 860.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("N. Tesla")

      New York, 1905. 1 p. (45 words) pen and ink on folded sheet of Waldor-Astoria stationery. Small 8vo. Faint offsetting from old envelope, folded once; very good. 1 p. (45 words) pen and ink on folded sheet of Waldor-Astoria stationery. Small 8vo. A brief letter, about 45 words, from famed inventor Nikola Tesla written on the hotel stationary of New York City hotel The Waldorf-Astoria. In 1904, at a career and financial low, Tesla was forced to take out a mortgage for his Wardenclyffe Tower property, to cover his hotel expenses of living at the Waldorf-Astoria. The early 1900s were challenging years for Tesla as he sought to built his "Tesla Tower." Known as the Wardenclyffe Tower, this structure was designed by Tesla to be a powerful wireless transmission station, built on an 81-acre campus in Shoreham, New York.  Things went sour as a financial embarrassment was caused by the refusal of the primary backer of the Tesla Tower to produce more cash; none other than financier J.P. Morgan. Tesla went through great angst trying to plead with J.P. Morgan to fund the completion of his tower, but his pleas were rebuffed. One biographer has suggested that by 1906 Tesla suffered a nervous breakdown because of his struggles with the Wardenclyffe Tower. Despite all of his tremendous ongoing difficulties, Tesla here expresses condolences for the death of a friend's wife: "...She leaves in my mind an indelible memory of great kindness and amicability.".

        THE BOOK OF THE THOUSAND NIGHTS AND A NIGHT. [and] SUPPLEMENTAL NIGHTS

      [London]: Printed by the Burton Club for Private Subscribers Only, [ca. 1905]. No. 5 OF 250 COPIES OF THE DE LUXE EDITION. This is an attractively bound set, in especially fine condition, of one of the enduring works in all of literature, and especially important as a work of translation. Probably derived from Egyptian and Persian origins, the "Arabian Nights' Entertainment," or "The Thousand and One Nights" has as its framework the story of a king who kills successive wives on the morning after the consummation of their marriage. The fatal pattern is broken by the wily Scheherazade, who enthralls her husband (and the reader) with stories so pleasing that her life is spared. The stories first appeared in a European language with the publication of a French translation by Antoine Galland early in the 18th century, and they were first done into English, with some omissions, by Edward William Lane in 1839-41. According to Britannica, the present famous translation by Burton, first printed in 1885-88, is "by far the most celebrated of all of his books. . . . As a monument of his Arabic learning and his encyclopedic knowledge of Eastern life, this translation was his greatest achievement." A man with superhuman energy, a ferocious temper, and a lust for savage experiences, Sir Richard F. Burton (1821-90) was a translator of the first order, an explorer, soldier, linguist, writer, anthropologist, and diplomat--he served as consul, respectively, in Fernando Po (on the west coast of Africa), Santos (Brazil), Damascus, and Trieste. It is said that during his lifetime he mastered 29 languages, and he authored perhaps 50 substantial books. Our printing of "Nights" is done "for private subscribers only" because, as was the case with the first edition, its erotic nature was still too explicit for the general British audience. Apart from the importance of its content, this is an attractive set in a pleasing decorative binding, and the book has apparently been the property of very modest or very careful owners, because it appears to be almost untouched.. 248 x 171 mm. (9 3/4 x 6 3/4"). Together, 17 volumes (seven of these being "Supplemental Nights"). No. 5 OF 250 COPIES OF THE DE LUXE EDITION. Contemporary black half morocco over blue buckram boards, raised bands, spine gilt in panels featuring large complex fleuron, its sides with arching palm fronds on curled stems, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed, partially UNOPENED. 113 plates after Letchford, LaLauze, and others. Penzer, pp. 126-34 (citing other editions). A hint of rubbing to isolated spots on the bindings, one leaf with three-inch tear at foot, other trivial imperfections internally, but IN ESPECIALLY FINE CONDITION INSIDE AND OUT, with virtually no signs of use. This is an attractively bound set, in especially fine condition, of one of the enduring works in all of literature, and especially important as a work of translation.
