        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 After composer's death Yurgenson bought rights to his unpublished and unknown works.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.

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'.

        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.

      London: Hodder & Stoughton,, 1906. (From "The Little White Bird"). Quarto. Original russet cloth, titles and decoration to spine and front cover gilt, dark grey endpapers with map to front free endpaper. In the printed dust jacket. Colour frontispiece and 49 colour plates mounted on brown paper with captioned tissue guards, black and white illustrations in the text, all by Rackham. Bookplate of Constance Catherine Wire. Joints rubbed, extremities gently bumped, in the toned dust jacket with large chip to tail of spine with partial loss of imprint, and chips to head of spine, rear fold and upper outer corner of front panel, the jacket verso lined in Japanese tissue inside the spine and at corners.

After the enormous success of the play Peter Pan, which opened on 27 December 1904 and broke all previous theatrical records, Barrie sanctioned this publication, in collaboration with Rackham as illustrator. The text was extracted, with minor revisions, from Barrie's book-within-a-book London story-collection for adults, The Little White Bird (1902), and it was published specifically as a children's gift book. (The play remained unpublished until 1928.)
