Die Illustrationen wurden eigentlich für den Märchen Kalender für das Jahr 1905 (mit Gedichten von Ludwig Fulda, gemeinsam mit Heinrich Lefler, Verlag M. Munk, Wien 1904) gemacht.

Gekauft bei Hermann Gompertz (Buchhandlung), Schildergasse 72-74, Cöln. Seitlicher Schnitt leicht bestoßen, einfache Klebebindung, Besitzvermerk aus der Zeit auf der Innenseite des Einbanddeckels, sonst ein gutes, sauberes Exemplar. Heinrich Lefler (1863 in Wien 1919 ebenda) war ein österreichischer Maler, Graphiker und Bühnenbildner. Er studierte von 1880 bis 1884 an der Wiener Akademie der bildenden Künste bei Christian Griepenkerl, ab 1884 an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste in München bei Nikolaus Gysis und Wilhelm von Diez. 1900 war er ein Gründungsmitglied des Hagenbundes. Er war von 1900 bis 1903 (unter der Direktion von Gustav Mahler) Ausstattungsleiter an der Wiener Hofoper. Von 1903 bis 1910 hatte er eine Professur an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste inne. Zusammen mit seinem Schwager Joseph Urban gehörte Lefler zu den wichtigsten Künstlern des europäischen Jugendstils. Beide Künstler arbeiteten oft zusammen. Urban lieferte dabei stets die dekorative Umrahmung zu Leflers Illustrationen. / Joseph Urban (1872 in Wien, 1933 in New York City) war ein zunächst österreichischer, später amerikanischer (Innen)Architekt, Illustrator und Bühnenbildner.

Dieses Exemplar trägt die Nummer 82 der kleinen Vorzugsausgabe. Absolut neuwertig. Elias Canetti (* 25. Juli 1905 in Russe, Bulgarien - + 14. August 1994 in Zürich) war ein berühmter Schriftsteller und Aphoristiker deutscher Sprache und erhielt 1981 den Literatur-Nobelpreis. "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."

        TRADITION OF THE CHEYENNE INDIANS

      N. P.: Arapaho Bee Print, [1905]., 1905. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Original dark maroon, sewn wrappers with title stamped in gold gilt on the front cover, n. p. (12 pp.), preface, double column, illustrated Seger spent years among the Cheyennes from 1872 onward, had charge of the Arapahoes at Seger Colony, and was at the head of the Cheyenne school when the Northern Cheyennes were removed to Darlington following the Custer massacre. John H. Seger, the author of these memoirs, was born in Ohio in 1846. He enlisted in the Union Army at age 17 and fought in 13 engagements. Afterward he settled in Kansas until he was employed by the Indian agent at Darlington in what is now Oklahoma. A few years later Seger founded the Indian School and town at Colony, Oklahoma. Seger spent the next 50 years among the local Indians. This crudely printed tract contains the Cheyenne narrative of traditions as transmitted by word of mouth from early days. The flood disaster, as they have it, happened in the Upper Missouri Valley. "The material which appears here has been selected for its value in illustrating conditions and characters of early days in Oklahoma.... There is enough to convince anyone that he is thoroughly familiar with the life of early days in western Oklahoma, and that he is a born story-teller who makes the past live for us anew. It is to be regretted that so few historians have his narrative gift."---W.S. Campbell, editor. A very scarce and important narrative of life among the Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians of western Oklahoma. Light wear to top edge of front cover else a near fine copy.

        The Pie and the Patty-Pan. IN VERY SCARCE ORIGINAL GLASSINE WRAPPER.

      1905 - Frederick Warne and Co. First edition, first impression, the blue variant binding with round pictorial inlay to upper board. In very scarce printed glassine wrapper that has ONE SHILLING NET near the foot of the front panel, with lists of Warne publications to both flaps plus 6 Peter Rabbit Books listed to rear cover, the last being "New Book for 1905. The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle." 10 coloured plates and line drawings to text. The first of Potter's works to be published in a large format and the details of her engaging watercolours are even more enjoyable on this scale. The colour plates are printed on one side of the quality paper; the other side is blank. There is a small crease to the top of page 7 and some sl. browning to both front and rear free endpapers. There is a scant portion of light foxing at the top of the centre fold. A light water stain covers a small triangle portion (4x2cm) to the front cover by the foot of the spine. This stain travels more lightly across the tail of the spine and bottom sixth of the back cover. There is the slightest corresponding rippling to the base of the rear panel of the glassine wrapper. There is a couple of small pieces of the wrapper missing to the tail of the spine and along the top edge of the rear panel there are a couple of pieces missing by the top of the rear flap alongside an open 3cm tear. There is creasing to the front panel of the wrapper. The book is surprisingly fresh and clean and has an unread aspect to it which is unusual for an early first edition of Potter. Postage may be higher than that stated as this book needs to be transported by courier. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Photo Album]: "Round the World 1905-6 Manchuria and S. Africa 1908-9" Military Observer

      1905-1909. Folio. Measuring 11" x 14". Half leather and pebbled black cloth over boards with gilt decorations. Contains 328 albumen photographs measuring between 3" x 4" and 4" x 6", with captions. Album is very good with foxing on the pages, worn edges, and a few images cut out otherwise with near fine photographs.A photo album compiled by Major General Richard Bannatyne Allason on a "round the world" trip spanning 1905 to 1909, from his time as "military observer" in Manchuria during the Russo-Japanese War. The album begins with a photo of a large house with the caption "starting from New Mile Chase, Ascot." Following this Allason entered Canada and crossed the country by train on a C.P.R. Engine and photographed the rail stations, attendants, and conductors. From Canada they boarded the RMS Empress of India. These photos show the passengers of the ship, Captain Beetham (who had become commander in 1905), and his first officer.After the travel photos the album continues with images of the Japanese 1st Army in Kin-Ka-Ko under the leadership of General Kuroki Tamemoto. There are several images of Kuroki with foreign military attaches dating from June, 1905. These photos show the 1st Army in candids and portraits around their barracks and include interiors of the quarters and of the grounds. Of interest are multiple images of Kuroki's Chief of Staff Major General Fujii Shigeta, including one print signed by Fujii, and a photograph of John J. Pershing (Pershing served as the American military attache attached to Kuroki's 1st Army in Manchuria from March to September). Allason also captured images of the local non-military including a "Manchurian family doing weekly washing of both clothes and persons." Another section of photos shows Army transport horses with one captioned, "specimen of Manchurian 'wheelpony' and harness in country cart -- so much used by Japanese army." Allason featured numerous photos of the horses used by the army labeling each one and what they were used for. One group of photos shows local smiths shoeing the horses, which involved tying the horse down and working on him, "the usual method of shoeing horses and mules" according to Allason. He also took portrait photos of various soldiers depicting their gear and uniform and captioning the photo with rank and outpost.Allason also photographed men out in the field displaying their artillery as well as methods of hiding from the enemy. He features photos of the "telegraph section in our riffraff," machine guns, and a cart with a ladder. One photo shows two men behind a haystack and reads, "how mere monts were concealed from view." Another shows a man labeled "a look out" on a hill. The next section documents the Japanese Mountain Battery 12th Division 1st Army. These photos show numerous carts with guns and close ups of boxes of ammunition as well as a column of pack horses and men in "marching order." Many of the gun used were captured by the Japanese including one featured here which reads, "captured Russian Field Gun," and is photographed from every angle with a description of the mechanisms and how it was used. One page is titled, "Japanese artillery in action," and depicts the men loading and firing their field guns. The battery often used pontoon boats to transport their heavy equipment to various locales and these are featured in photos depicting their construction. The boats are seen ferrying with the caption, "used as a raft [it carries] one gun and wagon or 24 men with kits."While traveling Allason documented the cultures of the countries he was visiting. During his Manchurian leg he photographed the "tomb of the Emperor of Manchuria" which featured the "memorial chapel" to Emperor Taiso" from about 1600 A.D. He photographed temples, local homes, and the Imperial Palace. One photo reads, "house in Palace -- shows some weeds in the courtyard and a porcelain roof." He photographed memorials and grave sites including a "temporary obelisk to fallen Japanese soldiers on summit of 203 meter hill." Port Arthur, the site of the beginning of the war is also seen here from the top of the hill. Allason also photographed Russian soldiers and compiled a series of "type of Russian soldiers in Manchuria" which included portraits of uniformed Russian soldiers of different ranks standing at attention. In his series of "types of --" he includes "types of Manchurian dancing girls and actresses" with photos of Asian women posed in traditional costumes. The album continues to Pekin where Allason photographed Chinese soldiers, temples, and the Railway Guard. He also photographed British attaches and expats who he stayed with during his trip including the British consul and his wife. Allason then boarded a ship and left for Japan. Shown here are hand-colored prints of Hakone Lake and Japanese people on horseback. He photographed the tea houses and geishas of the area, and included are hand-colored prints which feature women at work collecting tea leaves and geishas posed with parasols, and serving tea. There are candids of Japanese women, one of which reads, "this lady speaks English, French and German fluently."

        THE WEB OF THE PAST. By The Countess of Cromartie ... Colonial Edition

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1905.. Octavo, pp. [1-11] 12-304 + 16-page undated publisher's catalogue inserted at rear, original red cloth, front panel stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, all edges trimmed. Colonial edition. "Celtic historical fantasies, for the most part, romantic in mood and rather muted in effect. 'The Finding of the Sword,' however, is set in the present and concerns a hostile intrusion of the past into the present, following the archaeological discovery of an old Celtic sword (no doubt viewed by the spirits as a hostile intrusion of the present into the past). The story develops into an effective, if traditional, weird tale with antiquarian atmosphere and horrific highlights. Immediately after the unearthing of the sword, a darkly glamorous figure appears in the Irish village and insinuates himself into the household of the sword's owner. Oscar Innis seems to be either a reincarnation or a revivification of the old Celtic king who was the sword's original owner. Indisputably he exudes a magnetic power that bends others to his will. One scene portrays a vampiric transfer of vitality to him from the hapless narrator, a contender for the affections of the tomboyish lass who is apparently a reincarnation of the king's slave, who had refused to follow him into his grave; this time around, she pays for that disobedience." - Robert Eldridge. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 61. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). A couple of mild spots and a scratch on rear cover, preliminaries tanned, a very good copy with bright cover stamping. This book is scarce in any edition, both in the trade and in libraries (just two holdings for this recorded in COPAC (British Library and National Library of Scotland); OCLC reports no additional copies.

        TALES OF THE FISH PATROL

      1905. With Illustrations by George Varian. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1905. 3 pp undated ads. Original dark blue cloth pictorially decorated in yellow and green. First Edition of these seven tales, originally written as a serial for boys in "Youth's Companion." As a teenager, London had been an oyster thief in San Francisco Bay until he lost his boat to rivals; he wrote about these days in his thinly-veiled romance THE CRUISE OF THE DAZZLER. Ever the opportunist, once his pirating days were over London then turned his knowledge of the pirates to good use by joining the anti-thief Fish Patrol. He later acknowledged that much in these tales was more myth than truth, and "later admitted privately that the sole weapon he had carried with him was a table fork, and he had had to use it only once to keep off an amorous Greek sailor" [Sinclair].~The pictorial binding design, by Adam Empie (so initialed), shows London's sloop "The Reindeer" being pulled in by a whirlpool. This is a fine, bright copy. Sisson & Martens p. 26; Blanck 11887.

"The early 20th century saw a growth of British travel texts and religious commentaries concerned with the religion of Arabia. It was in this vein that in 1902 the Morning Post sent its 'Special Correspondent' Hadji Khan, a Persian Sufi, on the hajj to Mecca. His experiences were written up under the guidance of Wilfrid Sparroy. The result was a travelogue that detailed the various components of the hajj and Meccan life for a British readership The narrative is precise and exact as though for an audience who may wish to use the information to find their way amongst the markets of Mecca the next time they visit. Of course few, if any, of the readership will ever visit Mecca An inspection of Arabia which defines that other world by carefully recording the minutiae of Mecca and the hajj, the text providing the British reader with a spyglass scrutiny of Arab religious life and customs a curious concoction of personal experiences of a Muslim on the hajj distilled by an English co-author" (Canton, From Cairo to Baghdad: British Travellers in Arabia, p. 28).

        Japanese Fairy Tales (in 5 Books)

      Philadelphia (Tokyo): Macrae-Smith Company (T. Hasegawa). Original wraps. Near Fine. Part of the wonderful "Japanese Fairy Tale" series, originally published (in a smaller format) by T. Hasegawa of Tokyo in very late 19th/early 20th century and here presented for an American audience (in its larger format) by the Macrae-Smith Company of Philadelphia. These 5 self-contained fairy tales have in common the sure translations of the great Lafcadio Hearn. They're also neatly contained in Macrae-Smith's printed blue cloth chemise, with ivory clasps. All 5 of the fairy tales are vibrant and near-pristine in their ribbon-tied crepe paper, with rich illustrations from colored woodblocks. All of the volumes appear to be original printings in this American format and they all undoubtedly date from the very early 20th century (1905-1915). The 5 volumes are: "The Boy Who Drew Cats"; "The Old Woman Who Lost Her Dumpling"; "The Goblin Spider"; "The Fountain of Youth"; and "Chin Chin Kobakama"
