        Rip Van Winkle

      London: William Heinemann, 1905 - "The First Book Illustrated Illustrated by Arthur RackhamTo be Issued in a Limited Edition" (Riall).Bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for E. Joseph[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. IRVING, Washington. Rip Van Winkle. London: William Heinemann, 1905. Deluxe Edition, one of 250 numbered copies signed by Arthur Rackham, this being copy no. 197. Quarto. 57 pp. Title-page printed in black and green. Color frontispiece and fifty color plates mounted on heavy brown paper with lettered tissue guards, collected at end of text. Slight foxing to first and last blank leaves only. Bound ca. 1991 by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for E. Joseph (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in) in full dark green crushed levant morocco.

A fine copy.Around the middle of 1904. Ernest Brown & Phillips commissioned 50 color illustrations to Rip Van Winkle, and purchased the originals and all rights for 300 guineas. The publishing rights were then resold in a complicated deal to Heinemann, before the illustrations were exhibited at Brown and Phillips' Leicester Galleries. Most of the Rip drawings were sold at the exhibition, and by October they had all found purchasers."Brown and Phillips' investment, made secure by the keenness of Rackham's purchasers, was not let down by the reviews his work received.". When, in September 1905, Rip Van Winkle was published, comparisons between Rackham and German artists [i.e. Dürer and Joseph Sattler] continued to be voiced, The Times remarking on 'the marvel of his Düreresque detail.'". The 51 illustrations, for a story of not more than five thousand words, enables the story to be told twice, once through Irving's words, and once again, image by image, through Rackham's pictures. In his illustrations, Rackham pays homage not only to Dürer, Cruikshank and Dutch seventeenth-century painting, but to contemporary artists, too." (Hamilton).". But the first work that greatly advanced his fame in the years immediately following his marriage was his edition of Rip Van Winkle? This lovely book decisively established Rackham as the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period. The deluxe edition of the book was fully subscribed before the [Leicester Galleries] exhibition closed" (Hudson).Latimore and Haskell p. 26. Riall p. 69. Gettings p. 176. Hamilton pp. 68. Hudson pp. 57, 167. Hudson, p. 180 (Rackham bookplate). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        O kommunizme [In Cyrillic.]

      Odessa: Burevestnik, 1905 - Octavo. Original paper wrappers printed in blue with green floral decoration, wire-stitched. With the glassine jacket. Extremities lightly rubbed with a few small tears and nicks, contents browned, a faint stain to lower margin of front wrapper and title leaf, overall a very good copy. Ownership signature to front wrapper, unobtrusive library stamps to front wrapper recto and verso and title page. Second 'Burevestnik' edition, an early Russian edition of The Communist Manifesto, first published in German in 1848, and in Russian in 1869 under the more common title 'Manifest Kommunisticheskoi Partii'. OCLC locates just six copies (all in Europe bar one, in the National Library of Israel). The Manifesto is preceded by Plekhanov's lengthy introduction of 1900 (partially censored) which gives a detailed insight into the Marxist theory of class war and the tyranny of the proletariat, moving on to a thorough analysis of the historical origins of Marxist theory. A key feature of the preface is the refutation of critics of the manifesto, and propounders of Marxist theory, such as Bernstein, Sombart and Vandervelde. Also present are the prefaces to the 1872, 1883 and 1890 editions, translated and edited by G. Plekhanov. Andreas 430.

"Der weltweite Ruhm dieses erstaunlichen Romans eines Sechsundzwanzigjährigen kam, durch die politischen Ereignisse verzögert, erst spät obwohl das Buch von Thomas Mann, Hermann Broch, Hermann Hesse und anderen in seiner Bedeutung sogleich erkannt und enthusiastisch begrüßt worden war. Heute, mehr als ein halbes Jahrhundert seit seinem ersten Erscheinen (1935), steht fest, daß Die Blendung zu den großen Büchern der europäischen Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts gehört."

        The Holy Office.

      [Pola: late 1904 or early 1905] - Broadside printed on white wove paper, watermark of a spread eagle, 96 lines in two columns signed in type "James A. Joyce" at the bottom of the second column. Light vertical and horizontal creasing, a couple of spots of light foxing. In excellent condition. First printing. Together with a copy of a letter to Joyce from Thomas Koehler (sometimes Keller) of Dublin – a friend from his Dublin years – telling Joyce that he still has in his possession "a copy of The Holy Office put into my letter box long ago". Koehler adopted the spelling Keller at some point in his life although his family persisted in the original spelling after his death. He had met Joyce in the years preceding his departure for Europe in 1904. The two had become close friends and when Joyce had the Holy Office distributed he specifically directed that copies be given to Keller. Stanislaus reports this copy to be the first one he delivered. The publication date of this printing is not clearly established and the pencil date on this copy is mentioned by Slocum in the bibliography. Slocum notes that an earlier edition was reputed to have been printed in Dublin in the summer of 1904, though none are known to have survived. When the printer asked Joyce to pay for and collect the broadsheets he did not have the funds that month to do so. After receiving an "insolent" letter from the printers, Joyce later had it printed in Pola at his own expense. "Since no copies of the Dublin printing. seem to have survived, the Pola printing may be considered the first edition". Keller became manager of the printing firm Hely's where Leopold Bloom would once have worked. Slocum and Cahoon A2.

        Collection of Upton Sinclair correspondence and related material.

      1905-47. A collection of Upton Sinclair's correspondence (50 items), mainly with William McDevitt of San Francisco. Many items signed by Sinclair. McDevitt was a bookseller and author, involved in the socialist movement in the Bay Area (finding aid to the McDevitt papers, Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley). Mostly business correspondence, most of the letters are brief inquiries about the purchase and marketing of Sinclair's works. However, a number of the letters provide insight into Sinclair's and McDevitt's shared socialist ideology. A few of the letters, 1933-4, refer to Sinclair's unsuccessful run for governor of California on the Democratic ticket. Sinclair, however, ran on his "End Poverty in California" (EPIC) platform, basically a socialist program. Other writers referred to in the letters include Amborse Bierce, George Sterling, Jack London, and Tom Mooney. Of note are two letters from Edge Moor, Delaware (1910-11), when Sinclair was involved in the founding of Arden, Delaware, a community based on Henry George's concept of a single tax (see Delaware: A Guide to the First State (New York: The Viding Press, 1938), 167-75). Also included are an undated letter from McDevitt to "My Dear Students" and an invoice, dated August 25 1938, to McDevitt's book store. This collection also includes four of McDevitt's booklets: "When Coxey's Army Marcht on Washington," written with Carl Brown (1944); "Jack London' First" (1946); "Jack London as Poet and Platform Man" (1947); and "Ambrose Bierce on Richard Realf (1948). With advertising broadsides for Sinclair's books on sale at McDevitt's store, a lecture by McDevitt on "Rockefeller and Revolution," books on "the social question," and a debate on Prohibition. Some items chipped at edges. Booklets lightly tanned, mainly at edges of text.

        [Jugendstil Classic- Preissig] Byl Jeden Domecek

      Prague: Dedictvi Komenskeho, [1905]. First edition. 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.

        Atlas der menschlichen Blutzellen. Erste und Zweite Lieferung. + Supplement-Band. Erste - Dritte Lieferung. (all. publ.)

      Jena, Gustav Fischer, 1905-1912, 8, VI, 82, (1) XIV pp., pp.83-571 (4), 36 pp. IV, pp.37-131 X, pp.132-240, 43 farblith. Quart- und Foliotafeln, feinen Halbleinenbänden. Erste Ausgabe! "Mit Abschluß des nun fertiggestellten dritten Supplementheftes [beschließe ich endgültig und übergebe der Öffentlichkeit ein Werk (in 43 Tafeln und 75 Gruppenbildern aus 50 verschiedenen Krankheitsfällen), an dem ich nunmehr seit über 12 Jahren (seit 1899) unausgesetzt geschafft und gefördert habe." Obwohl also ursprünglich eigentlich in erster Linie ein didaktisches Werk geplant war, wandelte dieses sich doch mit der Zeit sehr bald mehr und mehr zu einer fast überwiegend wissenschaftlich monographischen Untersuchung um.Wer nun diesen z. T. doch ganz neuen Feststellungen, der morphologischen Hämatologie genügendes Interesse entgegenbringt, daß er die Mühe nicht scheut, den vielfach irrenden Entwicklungsgang dieses Forschungszweiges in seiner Genese per aspera an der Hand des Autors mitzudurchlaufen und sich in die Entwicklung der Gesetze der Blutzellgenese liebevoll zu vertiefen, der wird bald erkennen, daß schließlich allein die von uns zuerst vertretene und in diesem Werk abbildlich belegte Auffassung von der Zellgenese (genetische Beurteillungsmethode der Morphologie) der Blutzellen," nämlich die Lehre von der Unterscheidung zwischen Alterung und artlicher Entwicklung im allgemeinen, von Altersformen und Zeichen artlicher Differenzzierung im besonderen, nicht nur wohl begründet, sondern zurzeit wohl auch die einzige ist, die imstande ist, jede pathologische Zellform ohne Willkür restlos und befriedigend auf ihren jeweiligen normalen, behinderten oder aberrativen Entwicklungszustand und genetischen Wert hier zu erklären, und so in der Fülle der Gesichte zurechtzuweisen. Nur diese unsere Lehre von der Interferenz der Alterung mit der Differenzierung, nach der jeder morphologische Entwicklungszustand der Zelle das Produkt und die Resultante zweier koeffektiver Faktoren, eben der phyletisch-zellartlichen Differenzierung und der cytoindividuellen ontogenetischen Alterung ist, ferner die Anschauung, daß die artliche Entwicklung ihrerseits wieder analytisch in eine heteroplastische und eine homoplastisch proliferative Modalität zu zerlegen ist (derart, daß in allen Zellstämmen mindestens zwei selbständig alterungsfähige Generationen unterschieden werden müssen), nur diese Lehre und cytogenetische Auffassung ermöglicht es, mit absoluter Sicherheit jede irgendwie aufstoßende Zellform in deskriptiver Hinsicht genauestens zu bestimmen. Die Richtigkeit unserer Auffassung wird über kurz oder lang sicherlich bestätigt werden und die von uns zuerst festgestellte Kenntnis der wahren morphologischen und genetischen Verhältnisse, soweit sie mit unseren jetzigen bloß deskriptiven Methoden überhaupt zu ergründen ist, wird sich durchringen, nur werden andere, die selbst dabei weniger forschend voranzugehen als unsere Ergebnisse nachzuprüfen haben, diese unsere Lehren alsdann in knapperer und konzentrierterer Form vortragen, kommentieren und propagieren können." A. Pappenheim, Vorrede zum Ergänzungsband und Schlußworte zum Gesamtwerk des AtlassesFirst Edition, bound with all original installments wrappers! Artur Pappenheim (1870-1916) "One of the leaders in modern haematology, Pappenheim improved the methods of staining of blood cells" initially studied mathematics and philosophy, but his focus later turned to medicine, and in 1895 received his degree from the University of Berlin. Subsequently he became an assistant to Joseph von Mering at the University of Halle, and afterwards worked under neurologist Ludwig Lichtheim in Königsberg. Later he was an assistant to dermatologist Paul Gerson Unna in Hamburg and to internist Ernst Viktor von Leyden in Berlin. In 1912 he obtained the title of professor. Pappenheim established and published Folia haematologica, a journal dedicated to hematology. He was the author of several books, and postulated that haematopoietic stem cells had the potential for treatment of diseases,[1] however it would be decades before practical research would be done in this area. He died on December 31, 1916 of spotted typhus.Today, the German Society of Hematology and Oncology issues an annual Artur Pappenheim Award for the best work in the fields of hematology or haematological oncology.* Associated eponym: Pappenheim's stain: a methyl green-pyronin staining method used to differentiate between basophilic granules of erythrocytes (red blood cells) and nuclear fragments.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1905 - 1905 Original Hardback Wisden, Very Good Condition

      1905. Hi, This lot is an 1905 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the tenth year of the hardback and a year I have found hard to find recently, especially in this condition. This is one of the nicest prewar hardbacks I have seen. The boards are very clean with excellent, extremely bright gilt, a couple of tiny marks to the rear. The spine gilt is very bright and original. The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns are amazing, so bright yellow it is hard to express. The photoplate is very good and internaly a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. Hard to fault, if I had to pick something it is that when the book is on the desk gilt up there is a slight inward movement to the top right hand side of the book. A rare Wisden in superb condition (++) and a very nice price.
