        GLINKA & BILIBIN] Ruslan i Lyudmila. Volshebnaya opera v 5 deistviyakh. Syuzhet zaimstvovan iz poemy A. Pushkina. Muzyka M. Glinki / Pod red. M. Balakireva i S. Lyapunova [i.e. Ruslan and Ludmila. A Fairy Opera in 5 acts. The plot is adopted from Pushkin's poem. Music by M. Glinka / Edited by M. Balakirev and S. Lyapunov]

      P. Yurgenson, Moscow 1906 - 255 pp.: music. 30,5x24 cm. Contemporary bright red binder's cloth with title in gold and decoration in color (art nouveau style) on the front board and blind decorative border and binder's name on the back board. Original illustrated front cover is preserved. Endpapers are of paper with decorative ornament. Sprinkled edges. Owner's signature on the title page (1909), publisher's stamp on the title page, spine tarnished, light rubbing to the corners of the spine, red stain on the lower edge close to the spine. Otherwise a neat clean near fine copy. This is a two-hand piano reduction of Mikhail Glinka's (1804-1857) opera Ruslan and Lyudmila with full text by S. Lyapunov. Title-page, contents and text in Russian and German. Original front cover is illustrated by well-known illustrator Ivan Bilibin. The work on the opera started in 1837 and continued for 5 years. Because of Pushkin's death Glinka didn't have a libretto to start to work on opera. The premiere took place in 1842 in St. Petersburg. Glinka's works were mostly published by Pyotr Ivanovich Yurgenson (1836-1904) as he was the founder of the biggest and finest Russian music publishing house before the revolution. After composer's death Yurgenson bought rights to his unpublished and unknown works. In the beginning of the 20th century he was preparing an anniversary collection of Glinka's compositions, and when he died in 1903 M. Balakirev and S. Lyapunov took over preparations. Into collection they included new reductions, both orchestral and piano (like in this edition). Ivan Bilibin, famous for his distinctive illustrations to Pushkin's books, was invited to provide art work for editions of Life for the Tsar and Ruslan and Lyudmila.

        Serenade pour Violoncelle" - Autograph Musical Quotation

      - A beautiful AMQS of the important Russian composer's Serenade Espagnole for Violoncello, penned on a postcard of Turner's "The Grand Canal, Venice." Glazounow has written the first three measures of the cello part, marked Allegretto with the indication espress. He has signed below and dated December 8, 1906. The Argentinian collector, Ramona Imaz Otaño, has addressed the postcard to herself on the verso. With original Russian stamp and postmark, one slight scuff, overall in very fine condition. 5.5 x 3.5 inches (14 x 8.9 cm).A student of Rimsky-Korsakov, the first of his nine symphonies premiered when Glazounov was only 16 years old, and due in part to the advocacy of Franz Liszt, his work soon became well known in Russia and abroad. He was an important pedagogue, professor and later Director at the St. Petersburg Conservatory.  Musical quotations of Glazounov are rather uncommon.

The essays printed here are 'History', 'Self-Reliance', 'Compensation', 'Spiritual Laws', 'Love', 'Friendship', 'Prudence', 'Heroism', 'The Over-Soul', 'Circles', 'Intellect' and 'Art'.

        A Collection of Treaties, Engagements and Sanads relating to India and Neighbouring Countries [...]. Volume XII containing the treaties, &c., relating to Persia, the Arab Principalities in the Persian Gulf, and Oman. Revised and continued up to the 1st June 1906. Calcutta, Superintendent Government Printing, India, 1909.

      1906. 8vo. (2), X, 244, (2), CLXXXVII, (1), XLII pp. With tables and a folding map of Persia and the Northern Gulf in a lower cover pouch. Contemporary half calf. Includes: Volume XIII, containing in a lower cover pouch a reduced version of F. F. Hunter's map of the Gulf (123 x 90 cm). Forming part of the fourth edition of this important government-issued series (incorporating revisions to 1906), this 12th volume records, most importantly, the treaties made with the tribes of the Arabian Gulf - the Wahhabis, the territory of Bahrain, and the so-called "Maritime Tribes" of the Arabian coast, or the "Trucial Arab Chiefs". A lengthy introduction (pp. 137-155) gives a detailed overview of the geopolitical situation in the Gulf area from the viewpoint of the British Government in the early 20th century, including an account of the "Kawasim, who have occupied the province of Sir from the earliest times", and their supposed previous involvement with piracy and the plunder of British vessels (which the editors, curiously, principally blame on the influence of the "turbulent sect" of the Wahhabis, who supposedly had drawn the Qawasim "into the[ir] piratical projects"). The treaties paint a vivid picture of the political relations between the increasingly dominant British Government and the independent tribes who ruled the Gulf coast. Significantly, the contemporary rulers and their territories (in then-current spelling: "Shargah", "Ras-ool-Kheimah", "Ummool-Keiwey", "Debay", "Ejman", and "Aboo Dhebbee") are noted by name. Of principal importance is the agreement of peace between "Sheikh-ul Mus Sheikh Ameer Sultan bin Suggur, bin Kashid, Joasmee", and the East India Company, signed at Bandar Abbas on February 6th, 1806, whereby the EIC and the Sultan declared to honour their respective flags, property, dependents and subjects. This is followed by the Preliminary Treaty with Sultan bin Saqer Al Qasimi, signed at Ras-al-Kaimah on January 6th, 1820 (following General Keir's controversial 1819 expedition to the Arabian Gulf), by which the Sultan agreed to surrender "towers, guns, and vessels which are in Shargah, Imam, Umm-ool-Keiweyn, and their dependencies"), and by similar treaties with the other Sheikhs of the coast. The General Treaty that followed established "a lasting peace between the British Government and the Arab tribes", a "cessation of plunder and piracy by land and sea" and - famously - the design of the "Blood-Red Arab Flag", as it has been called, "a red flag in a border of white, the breadth of the white in the border being equal to the breadth of the red, known in the British Navy by the title of white pierced red" (with a black-and-white printed illustration in the margin). Sultan bin Saqer Al Qasimi signed the treaty at midday on Friday, the 4th of February 1820. Also contained is the text of the agreements entered into by Sultan bin Saqer on April 17th 1838, July 3rd 1839, and April 30th, 1847 (for the prevention of the slave trade), of the ten-year Maritime Truce signed on June 1st 1843 by Sultan bin Saqer and the other Sheikhs of the Arabian coast, and the ensuing Treaty of Peace in Perpetuity which was entered into in 1853. Later documents include the translation of a letter from Salem bin Sultan Al Qasimi to the British monarch's resident in the Gulf (1873) and an agreement for the prohibition of traffic in arms signed by Sheikh Saqer bin Khalid of Sharjah in November 1902. - In addition to the map of Persia, the volume was intended to include a map of the "Principalities of the Persian Gulf, etc., Oman, Turkish Arabia, Aden, South Coast of Arabia", but this was not completed in time for publication (instead, a slip of paper was inserted before the title page announcing that this was to be be "sent later"). The said map was then issued with the 13th and final volume, which is included in the set. This is a reduced version of the famous "Hunter Map", the first issue of which had just been released with the Gazetteer of the Gulf. - Edges somewhat rubbed, but a well-preserved, good copy. Provenance: formerly in the library of the Bohemian Foreign Office; later in that of the Institute for Foreign Politics, Hamburg. Macro, Bibliography of the Arabian Peninsula, 18.

        Sergey Korolev's signature and corrections on a technical paper ''Specifications of the electric equipment of a glider plane SK-7''

      Sergey Korolev (1906-1966) was the Soviet engineer and spacecraft designer who now considered the father of practical astronautics and the founder of the Soviet space program. He led Soviet efforts to build and test the nation's first rockets in the 1930s and was later responsible for building the Vostok capsule used for the first human spaceflight by cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin in 1961. Korolev is credited with many technological discoveries that became widely used in space exploration and military defence.Like in Germany and United Stated the Russian organizations by the early 1930s were testing liquid-fueled rockets of increasing size. Reaction Propulsion Scientific Research Institute developed a series of rocket-propelled missiles and gliders during the 1930s, culminating in Korolev's RP-318, Russia's first rocket propelled aircraft. It started in 1934 when he developed a project (at that time SK) for so called 'planerlet' (motor glider) - a heavier-than-air aircraft with eight seats and low-power engine without independent takeoff. The idea of creating such an apparatus was based on the growing need of national economy in aircrafts. A planerlet was supposed to combine advantages of a plane and a glider.Korolev was working on his project mostly by himself in the evenings and at nights. He was almost seriosly considering that one doesn't need to sleep every night. With the help of a few other engineers the first construction was soon finished and successfully tested. Later newly developed SK-9 became the basis for Korolev's project of a rocket-powered aircraft.

        [GLINKA & BILIBIN] Ruslan i Lyudmila. Volshebnaya opera v 5 deistviyakh. Syuzhet zaimstvovan iz poemy A. Pushkina. Muzyka M. Glinki / Pod red. M. Balakireva i S. Lyapunova [i.e. Ruslan and Ludmila. A Fairy Opera in 5 acts. The plot is adopted from Pushkin's poem. Music by M. Glinka / Edited by M. Balakirev and S. Lyapunov]

      Moscow: P. Yurgenson, 1906. 255 pp.: music. 30,5x24 cm. Contemporary bright red binder's cloth with title in gold and decoration in color (art nouveau style) on the front board and blind decorative border and binder's name on the back board. Original illustrated front cover is preserved. Endpapers are of paper with decorative ornament. Sprinkled edges. Owner's signature on the title page (1909), publisher's stamp on the title page, spine tarnished, light rubbing to the corners of the spine, red stain on the lower edge close to the spine. Otherwise a neat clean near fine copy. This is a two-hand piano reduction of Mikhail Glinka's (1804-1857) opera Ruslan and Lyudmila with full text by S. Lyapunov. Title-page, contents and text in Russian and German. Original front cover is illustrated by well-known illustrator Ivan Bilibin. The work on the opera started in 1837 and continued for 5 years. Because of Pushkin's death Glinka didn't have a libretto to start to work on opera. The premiere took place in 1842 in St. Petersburg. Glinka's works were mostly published by Pyotr Ivanovich Yurgenson (1836-1904) as he was the founder of the biggest and finest Russian music publishing house before the revolution. After composer's death Yurgenson bought rights to his unpublished and unknown works. In the beginning of the 20th century he was preparing an anniversary collection of Glinka's compositions, and when he died in 1903 M. Balakirev and S. Lyapunov took over preparations. Into collection they included new reductions, both orchestral and piano (like in this edition). Ivan Bilibin, famous for his distinctive illustrations to Pushkin's books, was invited to provide art work for editions of Life for the Tsar and Ruslan and Lyudmila.

        Lord Randolph Churchill

      London: Macmillan and Company, 1906. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is a superior first edition set of Winston Churchill's biography of his father, Lord Randolph Churchill. The two-volume work concentrates on Lord Randolph's career in Parliament after 1880. Winston Churchill's father, Lord Randolph, died in January 1895 at age 45 following the spectacular collapse of both his health and political career. His son Winston was 20 years old. When he first contemplated writing his father's biography Winston Churchill was an itinerant soldier and war correspondent who had yet to write his first book. The son still dwelt very much in his father's shadow, both emotionally and in terms of the political career to which he already aspired. By the time the work was published in 1906, the young Winston Churchill already had half a dozen books to his credit and half a decade in Parliament. By 1906 Churchill had already left his father's political party, prevailed in the same political battle that had terminated his father's career, and was just two years from his first Cabinet post. Churchill was criticized by some reviewers for overplaying his father's accomplishments. Nonetheless, the work was well received both as a frank portrayal of Randolph's extremes and as a showcase for the son's literary talent. The first edition is aesthetically pleasing, featuring deep red cloth, untrimmed page edges, gilt stamping, and the family coat of arms on the front covers. However, the red cloth binding of this edition proved quite susceptible to fading and wear and the contents to heavy spotting. First edition sets are not especially uncommon, but collector worthy sets are scarce. Here is such a set, in near fine condition. The bindings are square, tight, and clean with sharp corners and bright gilt. The covers retain vivid, wholly unfaded color. Shelf presentation is excellent for the edition. The spines show only a hint of color shift from the covers, retaining exceptional color and bright gilt. This set stands out distinctly on the shelf. We note only some wrinkling to the spine ends. The bright contents retain a crisp feel and some uncut signatures. We find no previous ownership marks. The spotting endemic to this edition is comparatively light, only intermittent within and not affecting the overall bright appearance of the untrimmed fore edges. The top edges are modestly dust soiled. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A17.1, Woods A8(a), Langworth p.69

        CORRISPONDENZA AUTOGRAFA FIRMATA DIRETTA ALL'AMICO GIOVANNI MASCIA. COMPRESA TRA IL 27 NOVEMBRE ED IL 13 DICEMBRE 1906.

      1906. Autografo. CARUSO Enrico. 1873 - 1921. L'insuperato tenore, i suoi trionfi hanno segnato un'epoca. Corrispondenza autografa firmata diretta all'amico Giovanni Mascia e compresa tra il 27 Novembre ed il 13 Dicembre 1906. Quattro lettere in 8vo (cm.23x15 ciascuna) per complessive dieci facciate su carta intestata Hotel Savoy New York, una con busta e bolli passati per la posta. Soggiornava Caruso nel famoso hotel di fronte al Central Park in attesa del debutto al Metropolitan con la Boheme, debutto che poi avvenne il 28 Novembre 1906, e nei momenti di pausa tra le prove era solito passeggiare nel Parco fino al Monkey House. Qui, vicino la gabbia delle scimmie, fu accusato dal tal Mrs. Graham di palpeggiamenti al fondo schiena. Immediatamente arrestato dall'agente Caine, Caruso fu trattenuto nella prigione del 67mo distretto. Da qui fu liberato dall'amico Conried che pagò la cauzione. Al sommario e farraginoso processo "...la Polizia la quale si è costituita parte civile contro di me in mancanza della donna accusatrice. Adesso tutto è andato bene e fra otto giorni sarò certamente assolto dalla condanna di 50 franchi avuta..." scrive nella lettera del 27 Novembre. Il giorno successivo alla prima della Boheme Caruso si presentò di spalle al pubblico, ma al Metropolitan vi fu un'ovazione straordinaria al suo apparire. Ne fu contento tanto che il 4 Dicembre in una risposta a Mascia "...il mio debutto fu splendido e felice... anche se... sono un poco nervoso perchè questa... di voce mia ne fa di tutti i colori". Dopo una settimana di trionfali rappresentazioni Caruso il 13 Dicembre confida le sue preoccupazioni "...la mia voce non è come dovrebbe essere...". Ma il suo scherzoso carattere non si lascia abbattere ne' da problemi di salute ne' da problemi giudiziari: a Mascia risentito per un ruolo poco gratificante il 29 Dicembre risponde "...da oggi ti darò il titolo che ti spetta Presidente Fondatore...". Sbollita la rabbia e l'ansia della disavventura allo zoo più pacatamente comunica "...intanto me lo ànno (sic) messo in corridoio anche in Appello avendo confermato la sentenza dei 10 dollari...". Fu forse la violenta campagna contro l'eccessiva immigrazione italiana la causa di questo sensazionale avvenimento: il poliziotto Caine fu radiato ed il Commissario Mathot allontanato dal distretto. Ma per Enrico Caruso fu un esperienza traumatica, egli ricordò per sempre questo incidente.

        Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson. With preface by Thomas Carlyle.

      Hammersmith: The Doves Press, 1906. One of 300 copies on paper, there were a further 25 on vellum. Printed in red and black. Pp. 312. Small 4to., original limp vellum, spine lettered in gilt. An extremely good, fresh copy with only a slight crease on the spine from opening. With the green leather and gilt booklabel of Alex. M. Hudnut which has slight offset on the free endpaper. Cobden-Sanderson had met Emerson when he visited London in the 1860s and clearly he had made quite an impression. He saw him as 'a pinnacle of a man' and, as Tidcombe asserts, 'Cobden-Sanderson was attracted ot Emerson's idealism, and to the hint of mysticism that coloured his view of nature'. The essays printed here are 'History', 'Self-Reliance', 'Compensation', 'Spiritual Laws', 'Love', 'Friendship', 'Prudence', 'Heroism', 'The Over-Soul', 'Circles', 'Intellect' and 'Art'.
