        OLD BELIEVERS' CHANTS] Oktay

      - [Second half of 19th cent.] 200 leaves. 36x24 cm. Manuscript. The title page and frontispiece is decorated in gold, blue and green colors. Every chapter starts with illuminated headpiece and initial. Contemporary red morocco with raised bands and gilt and blind stamping. The covers are slightly deformed. Otherwise very good. This book is an interesting example of Old Believers manuscript tradition. The conservative movement of Russian Orthodox Church, Old Believers were not allowed to print their books in Russia until 1905. As a result of this supression the manuscripts were used. The style was originally taken from pre-16th century examples, but by 18th century it developed to be an independent genre. Old Believers also carried on the tradition of unison singing that died out in mainstream Orthodox Church and is known as 'kryukovoe penie' (i.e. Znamenny chant). Choral manuscripts were among the most ornamental ones. This particular one is originating from the manuscript school called 'Guslitsy'. It was probably created in Moscow area in late 19th century for the use in Old Believers' service. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        INDIA – DARJEELING and SIKKIM: Map of the Eastern Himalayan Mission Field of the Church of Scotland Reduced and Compiled from the Indian Government Maps and Information Supplied by the Missionaries.

      London: Privately Published by the Author in West Norwood, London S.E., . 1905 - Lithograph with original outline hand colour (Good, attractive printing and original colour, some short closed tears along extremities, a small section of blank space and border replaced with facsimile, but overall pleasing condition for a wall map), 93 x 78 cm (36.5 x 30.5 inches). The only known surviving example of a wall map of Sikkim and Darjeeling, with fascinating new information, privately printed in London by the eminent Scottish tea planter George W. Christison. This excellent wall map embraces Sikkim (today its own Indian state), Darjeeling (today a part of West Bengal) and the adjacent districts of northeastern India. Located at the foot of the Himalayas, the area is one of extreme natural beauty and cultural wealth. Highly detailed in parts, the map is predicated on advanced Indian government surveys, but also features new information supplied by Scottish missionaries and tea planters. The map was compiled by George Watt Christison, a leading pioneer in the development of the Darjeeling tea industry, and privately printed by him in London. The map depicts the Sikkim (sandwiched between Nepal and Bhutan), which lay at the foot of Kangchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world (8,586 m / 28,169 ft); while to the south is the famous tea-growing region of Darjeeling Hills, while to its south is Darjeeling Terai; to the east is Daling Hills, and below the district of Dooars. The map labels innumerable villages, monasteries, tea plantations (known as gardens or ‘Bair’), walking paths, roads, railways and the heights of mountains (given in feet). The level of detail, especially in the Darjeeling and Daling Hills, is impressive, and of particular note are the numerous tea gardens, as well as the line of the Northern Bengal State Railway, built from 1874, which connects Darjeeling with Calcutta. The map was specifically designed by Chirstison to show the missionary activities of the Presbyterian Church in the Eastern Himalayas and, in this account, the map shows the locations of mission churches, schools (both day and night) and dispensaries. Christison’s lengthy notes in the upper right of the map, explains what is depicted, details his sources, gives an account of the region’s topography and provides a miniature map of the winding road to the famous Tukvar Tea Plantation, in Darjeeling Hills, giving an idea of the rugged nature of the country. The map was drafted at the Tukvar Plantation, but privately lithographed by Christison (likely at his residence) in West Norwood, Southeast London. The map has a wonderfully eccentric, homemade printing style, adding to the authentic quality of the piece. George Christison & Tea Gardens of Darjeeling - The region of the Eastern Himalayas showcased on the present map was culturally rich and long fiercely fought over by a number of major powers, including Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and Qing Dynasty China. Sikkim was an ancient, proud kingdom that had to continuously fight for its survival against its larger neighbors. Darjeeling was traditionally under the control of Nepal. In 1817, following the Anglo-Nepalese War (1814–16), Sikkim came under the loose protection of the British East India Company (EIC), wile Darjeeling came under the effective control of the Company. In 1835, the EIC assumed sovereignty over Darjeeling. Meanwhile, the British market had an ever-increasing thirst for tea, yet the EIC was unable to acquire sufficient, economically viable sources from China, so came to look elsewhere. The British realized that the Darjeeling Hills possessed the perfect climate and soils to grown high quality Chinese teas. In 1841, the British embarked on the first experiments to grow Chinese teas near the sleepy hill station of Darjeeling. These experiments proved successful, but it was not until the 1850s that the British embarked upon mass production upon large plantations. The EIC backed the establishment of the Darjeeling Tea Company to manage the bounty, and its operations were

PREFACE: 'In the following pages I have endeavoured to lay before the reader an account of two journeys under taken in Tibet, in districts situated many hundreds of miles apart and under diametrically opposite conditions. The first expedition penetrated into the interior of uninhabited and barren regions of the Northern Desert at a time when Tibet was rigidly closed to foreigners. The second led through the rich and thickly populated valleys of the Brahmaputra, and was made with the cognisance and permission of the Lhasa Government, though only rendered possible by the notable success of Sir Francis Younghusband's Mission. The natural obstacles inseparable from exploration in Tibet are so varied and numerous, that but little progress would be made were it not for the aid given by those who are interested in travel and who are willing to render every assistance in their power. I therefore take this opportunity of tendering my thanks to all who have contributed to the success of the journeys here described, and more particularly to Colonel St. G. Gore, R.E., Mr. J. Eccles, and the Officers of the Survey of India ; Major M. Ray, D.S.O., Intelligence Branch ; and Sir Clements Markham, K.C.B., and the Council of the Royal Geographical Society. November 1905. C. G.

        The Coast / Wilhelm's Magazine. FOUR BOUND VOLUMES.

      Seattle. The Coast Publishing Company. February 1902to December 1905. FOUR BOUND VOLUMES OF THE MAGAZINE with covers and advertisements in modern red library binding. Black and white illustrations throughout, 10 x 7 inches, gilt lettered red cloth library binding. Covers in fine condition; bookplate (for Frederick E. Ellis, Shaw Island) on inside front cover, overall a particularly clean and crisp collection of magazines with the following minor flaws: Volume III No. 1 (February 1902) to Volume IV No. 5 (December 1902): Very good condition. Volume V No. 1 (January 1903) to Volume VI No. 6 (December 1903): Very good condition, EXCEPT for October which apparently was water damaged along the upper edge; this has been trimmed, with no loss of text. Volume VII No. 1 (January 1904) to Volume VIII No. 6 (December 1904): April 1904 issue has some light undulations due to damp, and the red color on the front cover has run, other magazines in very good condition. Volume IX No. 1 (January 1905) to Volume X No 6 (December 1905): December issue has scarcely noticeable dampstain to front cover, lightest undulation to pages, other magazines in very good condition. Volumes contain the following issues February 1902 to December 1905 (volume III, number 1) to volume X, number 6. February 1902 was the first issue under the management of Honor L. Wilhelm, and he writes in the introductory ANNOUNCEMENT: "With this number the editorial management of THE COAST passes into new hands. The young ladies who planned and established THE COAST deserve praise for the perseverance and pluck with which they met adverse and discouraging conditions and published a magazine which, considering the support they received, was a credit to the City of Seattle and the Northwest. There seems to be a field for distinctive Seattle and Northwestern literature. People are constantly writing for reliable and trustworthy information of this country. Tales of the West and its triumphant progress are sought. Northwestern ideas and thought need a chronicle, impartial and true..." The magazine provides much valuable documentation of places, life and literature in the Pacific Northwest in the early 1900s, and this handsome run, complete with covers and advertisements makes for fascinating reading. While the vast majority of the content relates to Washington State, there is the occasional article on British Columbia and Oregon.

        Kate Greenaway

      London: Adam and Charles Black, 1905. Kate Greenaway In A Fine Pictorial Binding GREENAWAY, Kate. SPIELMANN, M.H., LAYARD, G.S. [BINDING]. [BIRDSALL, binders]. Kate Greenaway. London: Adam and Charles Black, 1905. First edition. Octavo (8 7/8 x 6 1/4 inches; 225 x 160 mm.). [xx], 300, [1], [1, blank] pp. Color frontispiece and fifty-three color plates after Kate Greenaway, with descriptive tissue guards, and numerous black and white illustrations, including thirty-four half-tone plates. Front and back blank leaves slightly foxed, some very minor and light marginal staining, otherwise near fine. Bound ca. 1905, most probably by Birdsall of Northampton, in three-quarter dark blue morocco over light blue cloth boards ruled in gilt. Spine with two raised bands decoratively paneled in gilt. The largest panel (3 3/4 x 2 inches) with a typical Kate Greenaway girl onlaid in various different colored morocco. Original color pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt. An excellent example. The roots of Birdsall of Northampton "stretch back to the early eighteenth century but it was in 1792 that John Lacy's Northampton bindery was acquired by William Birdsall, continuing in his family until 1961... In Birdsall's heyday, Gerring (Notes on Bookbinding, 1899) reported a staff of 250 engaged in making ladies handbags, fancy boxes, and stationary; as well as all types of bookbinding. The firm seemed always ready to experiment and careful records and samples were kept by Richard Birdsall, great-great-nephew of the founder, until he died in 1909... The firm's collection of over 3,000 finishing tools passed to the University of Toronto" (Maggs, Bookbinding in the British Isles II, #262, and #321). "Birdsall's is notable for the high quality of their leathers and finishings, as well as for the inventive style of their 'inlaid pictorial bindings'" (Chevalier Collection, Christie's November 9, 1990).

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

      Leipzig. Gilbers'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung (Eugen Twietmeyer). 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.

PREFACE: 'In the following pages I have endeavoured to lay before the reader an account of two journeys under taken in Tibet, in districts situated many hundreds of miles apart and under diametrically opposite conditions. The first expedition penetrated into the interior of uninhabited and barren regions of the Northern Desert at a time when Tibet was rigidly closed to foreigners. The second led through the rich and thickly populated valleys of the Brahmaputra, and was made with the cognisance and permission of the Lhasa Government, though only rendered possible by the notable success of Sir Francis Younghusband's Mission. The natural obstacles inseparable from exploration in Tibet are so varied and numerous, that but little progress would be made were it not for the aid given by those who are interested in travel and who are willing to render every assistance in their power. I therefore take this opportunity of tendering my thanks to all who have contributed to the success of the journeys here described, and more particularly to Colonel St. G. Gore, R.E., Mr. J. Eccles, and the Officers of the Survey of India ; Major M. Ray, D.S.O., Intelligence Branch ; and Sir Clements Markham, K.C.B., and the Council of the Royal Geographical Society. November 1905. C. G.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Lölling (Kärnten), 13. VII. 1905. - 11 SS. auf 6 Bll. 8vo. Mit eh. adr. Kuvert. An Graf Karl Coudenhove, den Statthalter im Königreich Böhmen, mit einer ausführlichen Beschwerde über "socialistische Treibereien" in der erzherzoglichen Herrschaft Chlumetz (Chlum u Trebone im Bezirk Jihocesky kraj, Tschechien) und mit dem dringenden Ersuchen diese abzustellen: "Wie Sie wissen besitze ich in Böhmen die Herrschaft Chlumetz in der Bezirkshauptmannschaft Wittigau. Bis vor Kurzem herrschten dort idyllische Zustände [.] beinahe nie kam irgend ein Anstand vor u. die arme Bevölkerung lebte glücklich : zufrieden größtentheils als Arbeiter oder Pächter der Herrschaft. Seit Kurzem nun begann in dieser Gegend eine socialistische Bewegung [.] Auf einmal wurden die Leute : die betreffenden Gemeindevertretungen total stutzig, bockbeinig u direkt feindselig gegen mich resp. gegen meine Gutsverwaltung. Es constituirten sich socialistische Vereine u mit den Leuten ist absolut nicht mehr auszukommen. Wie mir allgemein berichtet wird, sollen die Leute künstlich aufgehetzt worden sein. Wie weit nun da die Behörden eines oder beide Augen zugedrückt haben oder aus Angst oder Unkenntnis der Thatsachen diese Bewegung in diesem sonst so ruhigen Theile Böhmens nicht beachtet haben, kann ich nicht beurtheilen da ich die entsprechend Instructionen nicht kenne. Ich weiß nur zu meinem größten Bedauern, daß besonders seit der Ministerschaft Körbers die k. k. Sozialdemokraten besonders gehätschelt u gepflegt werden [.]". - Weiters über Vorfälle in seinem Dorf Mirochau bei Chlumetz: "Nun machte sich auf einmal eine scharfe socialistische Bewegung geltend, welche hauptsächlich von einem infamen Kerl von einem Lehrer inscenirt wurde, der seit ungf. einem halben Jahre strafweise nach Mirochau versetzt wurde. Die Leute inscenirten Streike im Torfstich, agitiren in Allem gegen die Herrschaft, werfen meine Zäune um etc. etc. Nun hat vor einigen Tagen als ich noch mit meiner Familie in Chlumetz weilte in Mirochau eine socialistische Versammlung stattgefunden, zu der auch ein auswärtiger Hetzer erschienen war [.] Der Bezirkshauptmann fand es nicht der Mühe werth, obgleich die Versammlung in nächster Nähe meines Wohnsitzes stattfand, einen Regierungsvertreter hinzuschicken: die Leute konnten thun u reden was sie wollten! Ich ließ mir den Bezirks Hptm. (der mir einen äußerst stupiden Eindruck machte) kommen u sagte ihm über sein Vorgehen in sehr scharfer Weise meine Meinung. Natürlich erfolgte eine ganze Fluth von sehr dummen Ausreden, die ich aber alle nicht annahm und nicht annehme, denn der Mann scheint vergessen zu haben wer in seiner Bezirkshauptmannschaft wohnt u daß es zum Mindesten eine grobe Dienstesnachlässigkeit ist, wenn er auf der Herrschaft und beinahe unter den Fenstern des Thronfolgers socialistische Versammlungen zuläßt ohne zum Mindesten einen Regierungsvertreter hinzusenden! Ich bitte daher Excellenz dringend da Ordnung zu schaffen, dem guten Mann den Hauptpunkt klar zu machen u ihm die entsprechende energische Rüge zu ertheilen [.] Es scheint überhaupt diese Bezirkshauptmannschaft sehr aufmischungsbedürftig zu sein, der frühere Bezirkshauptm[ann], der Gott sei Dank weggekommen ist, hat mit Wirthshausconcessionen geschachert und der jetzige scheint sich durch Nachlässigkeit u Stupidität auszuzeichnen [.]". - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf (Stahlstich mit Ansicht des Schlosses Lölling), das Kuvert mit rotem Lacksiegel.

Jahrhunderts wurden großangelegte Reformarbeiten am Reichsstrafgesetzbuch initiiert. In Berlin trat ein Komitee von 8 Professoren zusammen. Insbesondere der Schulenstreit, vertreten durch Liszt (soziologische Schule) und Binding (klassische Schule) hatte die Strafrechtsdogmatik enorm in Bewegung gebracht. Gleichzeitig war das internationale Strafrecht weit entwickelt und das Reichsstrafgesetzbuch suchte auch im Vergleich zu anderen europäischen und außereuropäischen Staaten in Vergleich zu treten. Zur Vorbereitung auf die große Strafrechtsreform wurde unter Heranziehung von 50 Mitarbeitern sowohl der Allgemeine wie Besondere Teil des Reichsstrafgesetzbuches unter internationalen Maßstäben wissenschaftlich durchforstet. - Alle Titelblätter mit altem Bibliotheksstempel, sonst innen sauber.

        La Petite Maison

      1905. BASTIDE, Jean-Francois. La Petite Maison. Paris: Librairie Henri Leclerc, 1905. Royal octavo, contemporary full light brown crushed morocco, boards gilt-decorated in Louis XV style, raised bands, green morocco doublures, frame-like ornamentation in same style with dark blue and pearl-gray inlays and gilt tooling, gray silk endpapers, marbled flyleaves, all edges gilt. Housed in custom chamois-lined marbled slipcase. $3000.Deluxe limited illustrated edition, number 5 of only 150 copies, with 16 delicate color etchings (in double suite) and an original signed watercolor, all by renowned French illustrator Adolphe Lalauze. Beautifully bound by Chambolle Duru.Combining fictional narrative with observations on art and architecture, La Petite Maison is the story of a woman who mistakes good taste for good intentions in a country house outside of Paris. Each etching is accompanied by a color proof, and a separate suite of the etchings is bound in at the rear. “It was in France that the [late nineteenth century] revival of etching was the most fruitful. Adolphe LalauzeÂ… is among the most prominent of the etchers who must be remembered for their illustrated books. Also in France, there developed the custom of issuing éditions de luxe for limited circulation with sets of etched illustrations in two or more states” (Harthan, The History of the Illustrated Book, 228). “Superb bindings of this sort were executed in such quantity that they came to be largely disregarded during the decades when books of the Belle Epoque were out of favorÂ… books so bound have increased in price by several hundred percent [since 1970]. Yet it may be argued that they are still substantially undervalued when compared with bindings of other eras” (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, 376-77). With original paper wrappers and spine bound in. Text in French. Expert repair to a rear signature. An elegant production in fine condition.

        Japanese Spirit

      1905. First Edition . Signed. (BERG, Morris “Moe”) OKAKURA, Yoshisaburo. The Japanese Spirit. New York: James Pott, 1905. 12mo, original blue cloth gilt. $1600.First edition of these lectures on Japanese history and culture, the copy belonging to major league baseball player and O.S.S. officer Morris “Moe” Berg, with his ownership stamps and extensive pencil markings, signed also by his sister.Morris “Moe” Berg, was a Major League Baseball player—and, according to Casey Stengel, “the strangest man” in the game. “He started out as a slick-fielding utility infielder before the Chicago White Sox in 1927 moved him to catcher, where he then found his niche as a substitute backstop, filling that role until he retired in 1939… But he was a brilliant scholar, picking up degrees from Princeton and Columbia Law School and studying philosophy at the Sorbonne. His linguistic skills inspired this observation by a teammate: ‘He can speak seven languages, but he can’t hit in any of them.” “In 1934, five years before he retired as a player, Berg made his second trip to Japan as part of a traveling major league All-Star team. One might wonder what the seldom-used catcher, a .251 hitter that season, was doing playing with the likes of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Berg, who spoke Japanese, took home movies of the Tokyo skyline that were used in the planning of General Jimmy Doolittle’s 1942 bombing raids on the Japanese capital.” Perhaps Berg read The Japanese Spirit in connection with that trip. In 1943, Berg became an O.S.S. officer; he would carry out one of its “more ambitious endeavors—a plot to possibly assassinate Werner Heisenberg, the head of Nazi Germany’s atom-bomb project… Berg’s assessment of the situation was that Germany was not close to having a nuclear bomb, and there was never an attempt to kill Heisenberg” (ESPN). Preface by George Meredith. Berg’s ownership stamp appears six times (front free endpaper; title page; pages vii, ix, 127; rear pastedown). In addition, Berg heavily marked in pencil approximately the first half of the text. He marked off many whole paragraphs, sometimes with asterisks; more specific marginalia appears on multiple pages. Berg’s sister Ethel, with whom he lived for the last eight years of his life, signed the book on the front pastedown. Another owner’s stamps appear beneath Berg’s on the front free endpaper.Light dampstaining toward head of gutter of approximately first 80 pages. Light rubbing to spine ends and extremities, minor soiling and abrasions to cloth, gilt bright. A very good copy with exceptionally intriguing provenance.
