        Serat Menak [ The Book of Menak]....

      1905. 276 pages of Javanese manuscript written in the hanacaraka script in a lined journal, double card covers have separated on the lower cover and a few unrelated printed leaves in Dutch (including a form in Dutch authorising someone to collect wood!) bound in presumably to give the covers strength are now visible. Even browning, some occasional stains in the margins, insect damage at lower corner last two leaves not affecting text, one leaf written upside down, first leaf creased, binding skewed and worn but still sound. A very nice manuscript copy of an important Javanese work. 35 x 20.5cm. This manuscript is of The Javanese Menak which are romances inspired by stories of Persian origin based on the adventures of Amir Hamzah or Amir Ambyah, the uncle of the prophet Muhammad. The MS is written in a clear hand in Javanese hanacaraka script.Some initial leaves give a list of the contents of the book as well as a history of its provenance which states that this is a book of Menak, written by Sumantri in Blora, bought by Mas Martosudirjo, head teacher in Blora, 1905 and signed by Martosudirjo.The preliminary leaves are followed by the manscript of the story itself which is in macapat verse beginning in Durma metre. A small notation in the top left corner of p.1 of the MS seems to indicate that the writing of the manuscript was begun on May 12th, 1905 and completed on September 12th 1905.

        From the City of the Sun: Being Poems and Songs by C. R. Ashbee

      Essex House Press, London 1905 - Essex House Press, London, 1905. Limited edition of 251, this being no 20. Book condition: very good. Grey boards lightly soiled. Paper labels to spine and front. Wood engraved illustrations, printer's device at end. The book has only been partly opened with most pages still uncut at upper edge. Loose bookplate of Ken Tomlinson to front pastedown. No jacket. This volume came from the collection of private press books built up by the Tomkinson family. Michael Tomkinson (1841 - 1921) established Tomkinson Carpets in Kidderminster and was a major collector of books and Japanese antiquities. Although some of his collection was sold after his death his son, Geoffrey (1881 - 1963), continued and grew the private press collection and published 'A Select Bibliography of the Principal Modern Presses Public and Private in Great Britain and Ireland' (1928). When Geoffrey died in 1963 his son Kenneth (1918 - 1985) continued to add to two generations of Tomkinson family private press books. This collection was recently broken up and sold. Charles Robert Ashbee (1863 - 1942) was an English designer and a prime mover in the Arts and Crafts movement. Ashbee set up the Essex House Press after William Morris's Kelmscott Press closed in 1897. He took on many of the printers and craftsman who had been working at kelmscott Press. Ashbee designed two type faces for Essex House (Endeavour and Prayer Book) both of which were based upon Morris's Golden Type. This volume is printed using Endeavour and includes six songs together with their melodies (the melodies being mainly 17th or 18th century). A rare and intriguing book with an interesting provenance.

        The Voyage of the "Discovery".

      New York and London: Charles Scribner's Sons; Smith, Elder, & Co.,, 1905. 2 volumes, large octavo. Original dark blue fine vertical-ribbed cloth, titles gilt to spines, gilt embossed medallions to front boards (reverse and obverse of the medal struck by the RGS), top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, title pages printed in red and black, 12 colour plates, 158 half-tone photographic plates, 12 further black and white plates, 5 double-page panoramas of which 4 from photographs, 5 maps of which one double-page and 2 folding in end-pockets. Extremities very lightly rubbed and bumped, vol. 1 spine gently rolled with commensurate mild cockling to cloth, rear board lightly marked, internally both volumes with slightly toned text-blocks, mild spotting to prelims, each of the 2 folding maps with one browned panel, vol. 1 with pale damp-stain to upper inner corner of frontispiece, rear inner hinge cracked but holding. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, "uncommon" US issue (Rosove), of Scott's official narrative of his first Antarctic expedition, published simultaneously with the UK issue. The 1901-4 voyage of the Discovery was the first scientific expedition to pass two consecutive winters at a high latitude in Antarctica, and made the first extensive land journeys into the interior of the continent; a farthest south of 82°17' was achieved on 30 December 1902. The trip was the beginning of the mutual antipathy between Scott and Shackleton, partly owing to Scott's forcing Shackleton's early return to England on account of illness. Among the civilian scientists was Dr Edward Adrian Wilson, Scott's close friend and confidant on this and his last expedition, where he too was to die; a talented artist, he also contributed watercolours for the attractive frontispieces and several of the plates, including all those in colour. With twenty-eight sledge journeys accomplished, the ice sheet explored, and a comprehensive scientific programme completed, the expedition was a triumph, although the failure of Scott's dogs was an ominous portent. This copy bears the gift inscription, "Lewis Herresshoff, from S. G. Coxe, February 1906" to the front free endpaper of the first volume. The recipient (1844-1926) was a member of a noted family of American marine engineers and yachtbuilders; his nephew (1890-1972) was also called Lewis, but went by Francis. An agreeable association copy of this "elaborate and handsome publication" (Taurus), a classic of the genre.

        Neue Malereien für Decken un Wände. Dritte Serie. Cover title: Grohmann Maler in Dresden. Neue Malereien fur Decken und Wande. 24 Tafeln. Serie III.

      Gilbers'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung (Eugen Twietmeyer). Leipzig. 1905. - 21 of 24 color lithographic plates, 19 1/2 x 15 inches, decorative color paper-covered board portfolio with ribbon ties. Portfolio worn and soiled, with loss; MISSING plates 42, 51 and 52. Scattered soiling, edge tears and creasing in margins of several plates. Soiling in two plates (44 and 45); plate 38 has 4 ink spots, 2 of which are in the image (from paints used by a copyist). Beautifully executed Art Nouveau designs for decorating walls and ceilings created by Paul Grohmann, who had an extended career in creating such portfolio design publications. A number of the panels hint at the Deco stylistics that emerged in upcoming decades. Exceptionally fine color lithography evident in every plate. Two plates feature a single image, ten feature two images, while the balance feature three or more images. The price list at the front of the portfolio indicates that the plates could be purchased individually or as a set and were available in two different formats (at different prices). The series begins with Plate 29 and ends with Plate 52. The colors used are primarily in pastel shades augmented by vibrant gold outlining. This type of applied art portfolio is seldom found complete, since they were used as working references. An extremely scarce title; no listing appears in WorldCat.

        The Winning of the West

      NY, Current Literature Publishing Company, 1905. Hard Cover. Six volumes; 18 cm. Vol.1, 288 p., The Spread of the English-speaking Peoples; 2, 331 p., In the Current of the Revolution; 3, 320 p., The War in the Northwest; 4, 263 p., The Indian Wars, 1784-1787. Franklin, Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee; 5, 230 p., St. Clair and Wayne; 6, 308 p., Louisiana and Aaron Burr. Frontispieces in all volumes. Roosevelt published this delightfully written adventure story in 1889. Interest in it flourished during his presidency, and it was brought out in this smaller format. The old suede spines had disintegrated over the past century, so to preserve this set and to make it easier to read, I had my binder replace the spines with white cloth to match the original boards, with new endpapers, and matching the original spine titles. I may have paid too much for the binding, but this copy will outlast any I have seen offered for sale, as well as the ones in libraries. Stock#OB1065. Very Good.

        Kliuv: ezhenedel'nyi zhurnal politicheskoi i obshchestvennoi satiry [The beak: a weekly journal of political and social satire], nos. 1-2 (all published).

      St. Petersburg: Tip. "Narodnaia pol'za" 1905 - Quartos (ca. 36 × 24.5 cm). Original pictorial self-wrappers; 8 pp. each. Each with numerous black-and-white cartoons. Good or better, with light wear and soil, some fraying to edges and tear to lower right corner of the second issue. Complete run (only two issues appeared) of this Russian satirical journal, which was distributed to subscribers in lieu of the even more short-lived "Diatel" ("Woodpecker"), which was prohibited after only one issue. Two issues of "Woodpecker" were printed, but both were likewise confiscated. The journal was forbidden and the editor, he editor, A. Gol'mstrem, received a six month jail sentence. Cathy Porter notes that journals such as these were, in particular, a reaction to Bloody Sunday, a protest which left hundreds dead and many more wounded: “Alongside the struggle in street and factory was the struggle for the free press. Ministers and clerics suffered assassination more by the pen than the bullet as the revolution strove for the expression of powerful emotions long suppressed. A flood of satirical journals poured from the presses, honouring the dead and vilifying the mighty. Drawings of frenzied immediacy and extraordinary technical virtuosity were combined with prose and verse written in a popular underground language, veiled in allgory, metaphor and references to the past [ ] For a few brief months the journals spoke with a great and unprecedented rage that neither arrest nor exile could silence" (Blood & Laughter: Caricatures from the 1905 Revolution, pp. 18-19). The first issue features a caricature of a policeman clutching a large number of confiscated satirical journals, with the caption "A successful hunt." Numerous other caricatures take aim at Sergei Witte, the Russian finance minister and first prime minister in 1905. Smirnov-Sokol'skii 2234. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Das römische Carneval. Nr. 114 von 250 numerierten Exemplaren.

      Leipzig, Insel-Verlag, 1905. Faksimile-Druck - eigentlich zweite Auflage. Mit gestochener Titelvignette und 20 handkolorierten lithographischen Tafeln. 1 faksim.

Kraus nach Skizzen von G. Schutz und Goethe. - Aus dem Druckvermerk des Insel-Verlags: \"Im \'zweiten römischen Aufenthalt\' bemerkte Goethe dann, dass das Carneval \'sich selten mache\'; er selbst besaß es in seiner Bibliothek nicht und bot in einer Auktion vergebens sechs Taler drauf. Trotz Goethes Zweifel unternahm der Insel-Verlag in Leipzig im Jahre 1905 diese \'zweite Auflage\'. Sie wurde in 250 numerierten Exemplaren in der Offizin von W. Drugulin in Leipzig gedruckt. Die Tafeln wurden durch Steindruck hergestellt und mit der Hand koloriert.\" (Sarkowski 605) - Einband berieben und etwas fleckig (die üblichen Lederflecken). Kanten und Ecken beschabt, Ecken bestoßen. Rückenkanten unten mit minimalen Einrissen (Beschabungen). Schmutztitel leicht stockfl. bzw. mit leichtem Titelvignettenabdruck. Ansonsten innen recht frisch und gut erhalten. - Dekoratives, ansprechend gestaltetes Werk - ein schönes Beispiel für die Buchkunst im frühen Insel-Verlag.
