        Strely: zhurnal sarkasticheskii i bezposhchadnyi [Arrows: a journal both sarcastic and merciless], nos. 2-6 (1905) and 9 (1906).

      St. Petersburg: Tipo-lit. "Energiia" 1905 - Quartos (ca. 33 × 23 cm). Original pictorial self-wrappers; 12 pp. each. Each with numerous color (black and red) cartoons. About good to very good copies with occasional light soil; one issue with old horizontal crease; one with front wrapper detached, two old Soviet bookstore stamps to rear wrapper, and one discrete library duplicate stamp. Substantial run (six of nine issues published) of the striking satirical journal, which billed itself as one of the most ruthlessly anti-tsarist publications to emerge in the Russian Revolution of 1905 ("sarcastic and merciless"). Cathy Porter notes that these journals 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). "Strely" features some of the earliest work of the political cartoonist and caricaturist Nikolai Remizov (or Remisoff, 1887-1979), who was loosely allied with the World of Art (Mir iskusstva) movement, and published throughout the 1910s under the pseudonym "Re-Mi." Other illustrations are signed "Gamlet" (Hamlet). Various contributions are under such pseudonyms as Parlamenter and Zoil. A known contributor was Leonid Munstein (Lolo), a playwright and poet who left Russia after the October Revolution and would direct his ire against the Bolsheviks. The editor, Isai Knorozovsky (born 1858) was a musicologist and editor who founded "Strely" after the October Manifesto, which granted, among others, the right of free press in response to the strikes and unrest that gripped the Russian Empire throughout 1905. Nevertheless, issues 2 and 5 of the journal were confiscated, and no. 9 was destroyed by court order and is considered the rarest. Knorozovsky received a jail sentence and was forbidden from editorial activities for five years. Smirnov-Sokol'skii 2292. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Spokane Washington.

      John W. Graham & Co. Spokane, WA. 1905. - Color wall map, chromolithograph bird's eye view, sheet size 41 1/2 x 61 inches, mounted on linen and attached to wood rods at upper and lower edge. Light toning associated with aging of original protective lacquer coating. Overall very good, bright and clean condition. A visually stunning and detailed bird's eye view of the Spokane area, published by J.W. Graham & Co., a paper and stationery supply store. In 1898 the main commercial area of Spokane had suffered a devastating fire; along with loss of life, there had been hundreds of thousands of dollars of property damage to Spokane, including the total loss of the Graham store, then located in the Great Eastern block (built in 1890 at a cost of $250,000). A mere 7 years later J.W. Graham & Co. trumpeted the resurgence of the Inland Empire, and their business, in this huge bird's eye view image. The legend along the lower edge identifies 74 sites, including two J.W. Graham locations one of which is a warehouse; there is an inset at the upper left edge of the military post Fort Wright.

        Japan: a Record in Colour

      London: Adam & Charles Black, January, 1905. Octavo (217 x 152 mm). Contemporary blue morocco, richly gilt spine, sides with concentric roll tool and three-line rule panels, flower-and-dot ornamentation at corners with circular morocco onlays, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. 100 colour plates (with captioned tissue guards) from watercolours by Mortimer menpes. Burgundy morocco book label of Doris L. Benz. An excellent copy. A beautifully bound copy. The Australian-born Mortimer Menpes was one of Whistler's pupils and strongly influenced by him to study Japanese art. Modern Japanese critics have objected that, like Whistler, Menpes did not understand Japanese painting techniques and merely imported trappings of Japanese art into his realistic paintings and graphics. But back in London after his second trip to Japan, Menpes adventurously built a studio and home according to what he perceived as Japanese style, and decorated it with Japanese fittings. The text here is edited by his daughter, Dorothy, Whistler's goddaughter. This copy is from the fifth printing; the book was first published in December 1901, one of the early productions of A & C Black's expensive 20 shilling series.

        Lessons from Bernard Rudofsky: Life as a Voyage: Life a Voyage (Englisch) Gebundene Ausgabe von Architekturzentrum Architekturzentrum Wien (Herausgeber), The The Getty Research Institute (Mitarbeiter)

      What we need is not a new way of building but a new way of livingso the subtitle of one of Rudofskys last works. Setting out from the assumption that the design of every single room in a house is based on a physical function: one place to lie the body down to rest, another to take in food, a third to step into a tub to bath, Bernard Rudofsky (1905-88) believed architecture served to stimulate the senses and refine everyday culture. His conception of architecture and design is more topical today than ever. Internationally renowned in his day for the exhibitions he created for MoMA in the 1940s and 1950s, today he is remembered above all for his sharp-tongued, witty writings, which still speak to a broad audience. "Lessons from Bernard Rudofsky" is more than a collection of essays by experts and introduction to the complex concept of architecture and living of a cosmopolitan and unconventional thinker the rich visual material conveys his philosophy: "I believe that sensory pleasure should take precedence over intellectual pleasure in art and architecture." Bernard Rudofsky (190588) was a trained architect but was also active as a designer, exhibition curator, author, and cultural critic.

        Wall and Roof Climbing.

      Eton College: Spottiswoode and Co., Limited,, 1905. Octavo. Original olive buckram, titles to front gilt, top edge gilt. Bookplate of Ernest A. Baker to front pastedown. Cloth tanned, front joint starting at ends, ends and corners rubbed, first quire somewhat loose, nonetheless a good copy. First edition, first impression, very scarce presentation copy inscribed "'from the Culprit' 1906", of this notable satirical anthology of buildering lore through the ages by Geoffrey Winthrop Young (1876-1958), author of The Roof-Climber's Guide to Trinity (1899), this his second book, and an early title in the lineage of Cambridge-related roof-climbing books that culminated in the cult classic Night Climbers of Cambridge (1937) by "Whipplesnaith". This copy, as well as being inscribed on the front free endpaper, has an autograph note signed by Young tipped in, jovially gifting this "literary joke" to Ernest Albert Baker (1860-1941), author, lexicographer and literary scholar whose standard reference ten volume History of the English Novel was published 1924-39. Wall and Roof Climbing, which was anonymously published while Young was a master at Eton, assembles quotations from authors (reaching through Shakespeare and Marlowe, past Chaucer and Malory, as far back as Ovid and Boethius) as tongue-in-cheek proof of the noble and ancient heritage of the buildering "faith". It also includes a bibliography and appendices on Interior Climbing (vide. Bacon), Haystack Climbing (vide. Burns), Tree Climbing (vide. the Talmud). The author Young went on to be a notable mountain climber, and was elected president of the Climbers Club in 1913. During the First World War, though a conscientious objector, he was decorated for his service in the Friends' Ambulance Unit - but was wounded by an explosion that caused the amputation of one of his legs. Irrepressible in spite of this misfortune, Young continued alpine climbing using a special artificial mountaineering leg, and climbed the Matterhorn in 1928. It is a very scarce book in the trade, with 14 copies listed institutionally worldwide but only one other copy recorded at auction, and this the only presentation copy traced.

Die Mappe enthält: Zottige Klapper (465), Grind-Flockenblume (521), Kohldistel (543), Akelei (468), Letterdistel (546), Wiesenbocksbart (455). Bildformat ca. 12 x 9,5 bis 17 x 13 cm, auf Karton unter Passepartout montiert, nummeriert, bezeichnet und signiert. In kartonierter Mappe, 33 x 24 cm, mit Aufschrift. Eindrucksvolle photographische Pflanzenstudien nach Blossfeldt zwischen Kunsthochschule und Bauhaus. Paul Dobe begann 1905 ein Studium an der Königlichen akademischen Hochschule für die bildenden Künste. Dort unterrichtete Karl Blossfeldt seit 1899 das Fach "Modellieren nach lebenden Pflanzen", und möglicherweise erhielt Dobe davon Kenntnis. Dennoch verließ er Berlin bald, um seine Studien in München bei Wilhelm von Debschitz fortzusetzen. Unter dem Einfluss von Hermann Obrist führte ihn die Benutzung des Mikrospkops zu seinem Lebensthema, dem Studium der "kleinen Blume". 1919/1920 hielt Paul Dobe am neu gegründeten Bauhaus seine Vorlesungsreihe "Das Wesen der Plfanzenform". 1929 erschien in der Reihe Die Blauen Bücher seine mit Photographien illustrierte Publikation Wilde Blumen der deutschen Flora (hier beiligend).

        Die Blendung. Roman. Gesammelte Werke in 10 Bänden - Band 1

      511 (1) Seiten 8, gebundene Ausgabe, Leinen Sehr rares, numeriertes Exemplar aus einer limitierten Edition, mit der Signatur des Autors auf dem Vorsatz. Dieses Exemplar trägt die Nummer 187 der kleinen Vorzugsausgabe. Das offensichtlich ungelesene Buch, innen völlig frisch, der Schutzumschlag indes mit geringfügigen Lagerspuren. 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."

        Sammlung von 30 handgeschriebenen Menükarten mit dem blindgeprägten Wappen des Kaisers.

      Kl.-8 (16,3 x 11,1 cm). Ausserordentlich interessante Sammlung, welche die Essgewohnheiten und kulinarischen Vorlieben des Kaisers anschaulich dokumentiert. - Die auf Französisch abgefassten Speisekarten tragen jeweils unter dem Wappen des Kaisers das Datum (Diner du 1 Décembre 1905 usw.) und darunter das immer siebengängige Menü. Die Menüfolge beginnt stets mit einer Suppe (Potage Polignac, Potage créme de canard, Potage créme de carottes, Potage brunoise usw.), gefolgt von drei Gängen, unter denen zumindest zwei, oft drei Fleischspeisen zu finden sind (Bécasses roties, Poularde de Graz, Filet de cerf à la creme, Poulets frits usw.). Es folgt eine Süßspeise (Gaufres à la Flamande, Beignets seringués, Soufflé au chocolat, Bombe au chocolat usw.), wiederum gefolgt von Fromage und Desert. - Praktisch täglich (mit zwei Ausnahmen, an denen es u.a. Wildschwein bzw. Kalb gab) steht ein Rindfleischgericht auf dem Speiseplan (etwa jeden zweiten Tag ein Pièce de boeuf garnie, aber auch Rumpsteak garni, Roulade de boeuf braisée garnie usw.), was die bekannte Vorliebe des Kaisers für Rindfleisch eindrucksvoll bestätigt. - Die Fleischbrühe musste in der Hofküche vorher separat aus anderen Stücken gekocht werden, die dann auf den Tellern des Personals landeten. Das Suppenfleisch gehörte jedenfalls unter keinen Umständen auf den kaiserlichen Tisch. Vorher kamen eben verschiedene Gustostückerl als Rindfleisch garniert mit diversen Beilagen auf die kaiserliche Tafel, [...] pièce de boeuf garnie genannt (Etzlstorfer/Ruhm, Tafeln mit dem Kaiser, S. 25). - Unterschiedlich fleckig. Vereinzelte Knickspuren. -

        Official report of The Armenian assassination attempt against the Sultan Abdul Hamid II

      ?n original decorative dark green binding with the Toghra (arm) of the Sultan Abdul Hamid II and the Ottoman cresent. Dedicated and signed by a possible member of the commity in 21-11-1321 (21-11-1905). With 14 plates in the end contain 34 original photographs of the accused people, equipments and explosive materials used in the assassination attempt. Ex-libris Ertugrul Zekai Okte. Armenians who were not able to get the desired results from their protests in Istanbul in 1895 and 1896 attempted to draw the attention of big powers by assassinating Abdulhamid II and carrying out big protests, and in this way, reach their goals by weakening the Ottoman Empire. Within this framework, it was decided to start intensive activities in Istanbul and ?zmir in the Dashnaksutyun congress carried out in Sofia in January of 1904. According to this, the Sultan would be assassinated and then the government centre, Galata Bridge, Tunnel, Ottoman Bank, foreign embassies and some other private and official institutions would be blown up. Therefore, a great unrest and revolution would be created and Istanbul would be left in blood and fire and then the intervention of the European countries would be ensured. The Armenian defenders started their preparations in the light of these decisions. The most significant role among the intriguers was played by the Russian Armenian Samuel Fain (Kristafor Mikaelyan), his daughter Robina Fain, and Lipa Rips (Konstantin Kabulyan). These made connection with the Belgian Edward Jorris who had an anarchist spirit. The assassins started to follow the actions of Abdulhamid II. They decided on Friday when the Sultan went to the Y?ld?z Mosque and the official ceremony was held as the most appropriate time for the action. According to their detections, the arrival of the Sultan to his cart and move after the prayers was taking 1 minute and 42 seconds. As for the plan they made within this framework, a cart where a time bomb was placed would be brought near the mosque and the time bomb would blow just when the Sultan was passing by that spot.The Armenian assassins came to the Y?ld?z Mosque with their cars on 21 July 1905 Friday as they had planned. When the prayers were over they activated the time bomb. However, at the end of the prayers Sheikh ul-Islam Cemaleddin Efendi came to the Sultan. They had some quick words. In the meantime, before the Sultan got in the cart, the time bomb, which had been set already, blew up creating a huge noise outside the mosque. The Sultan, who was coincidentally kept busy by Sheikh ul-Islam, was saved from the assassination. However, many people around the exploded cart died and were injured.According to the statement of Tahsin Bey, the First Secretary of the Palace, the Sultan demonstrated a great example of courage (Tahsin Pasha 1990, p. 158). Abdulhamid II shouted, "Don't be afraid, don't be afraid" to be able to calm down the panic. Those who saw his calm state of condition, soldiers and officers immediately got back to their places. The Sultan got in his cart saying, "Don't worry. Don't let anybody get injured by the confluence." He took the law in his hands. He started to climb the hill by using the cart more slowly than before. In the meantime, the Austrian ambassador was shouting "Vive le Sultan – Long Live the Sultan" (Osmano?lu 1986, p. 59).This assassination arranged by Armenians for Sultan Abdulhamid was announced in the newspapers the following day (Tercüman-? Hakikat, 19 Cemaziyelevvel 1323). In the meantime, big reactions came from both inside the country and outside of the county. Many Ottoman citizens condemned the attack against the Sultan. All kings and presidents of the time sent their telegraphs of good wishes to the palace and stated that they condemned the event. The first report on the assassination was prepared by Be?ikta? Police Commandership. (From an article by Dr. Vahdettin Engin)

        Japanese Spirit

      1905 - (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.

        An Anglo-Chinese Calendar for 250 Years, 1751 to 2000.

      1905. KLIENE, Charles. An Anglo-Chinese Calendar for 250 Years, 1751 to 2000. [4], 4, [3], 500 pp. Frontispiece with Chinese characters. 4to., bound in original morocco-backed decorated cloth, rebacked with the original spine laid down and new endpapers. Hong Kong: Man Yu Tong, 1905. First Edition. Charles Kliene was a member of the Chinese Customs Service and compiled this double calendar that notes holidays covering 250 years for official, merchant and missionary use. In the Preface he acknowledges that it is not a conveniently sized work, but nonetheless anticipates that its usefulness will compensate for this. He writes in the Preface about the system used to compile the Chinese calendar and how it developed. He also acknowledges the historical usefulness of having a method for recording time. "While it must be granted that in the face of a bewildering mass of legends and fabulous traditions it is hopeless to attempt to glean anything like authentic information concerning China's earliest civilization, it is, nevertheless, amply proved that even as far back as the days of the Chaldeans, the Chinese possessed a method of recording time not differing essentially from that of the present day. The early existence of this method accounts no doubt, in a great measure, for the fact that many interesting events of the past have been chronicled and handed down in a comparatively connected and intelligible manner" (p. 1). Each year is covered by two pages which show the dates in columns beside each other. A handsome piece of printing, and a scarce book.
