        The Land of Oz / A Sequel to The Wizard of Oz

      The Reilly & Britton Co., Chicago 1906 - This copy of the sequel to "The Wizard of Oz" is "good" but no better. It's intact and complete. Both sets of endpapers (featuring inset photographic representations of the dedicatees, popular Vaudevillians David C. Montgomery and Fred A. Stone as the Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow) are intact, and all 16 color plates (including frontispiece) remain attached where they're supposed to be. (Our scan shows the REAR endpapers, where there's been a hinge repair. Front endpapers are a mirror image of these.) States "Published, July, 1904," and title page also states 1904, though probably actually 1906, as (while title page still reads "The Marvelous Land of Oz,") title to front board and spine has been shortened to "The Land of Oz." This would appear to be the third state of the first edition, as per Hanff & Greene. Bound in red cloth stamped in black, green, and silver, with Pumpkinhead stamped in black to rear board. Thickness of book with its boards is one inch, or at most 1-and-1/16th (3 cm.) 1907 Christmas gift inscription in pencil to recto of frontispiece. (We have ARTIFICALLY DARKENED our scan of this particular page to render inscription legible -- other scans depict interior page colors more accurately.) No Dorothy or Toto, this time, but the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman retain major roles, and we also get Glinda, Ozma, the Highly Magnified Woggle-Bug, Jack Pumpkinhead, The Animated Saw-Horse and the Gump. Flaws: The sheet BEFORE the final color plate ("The Scarecow As Royal Treasurer") comprising text pp. 283-284, is split near spine for most of its height, with only the top quarter still connected. Two small pieces of "Magic" tape have been placed along this split near gutter -- impinging no text -- to hold sheet in place until a more sophisticated repair can be attempted. (This no-nitrate tape can be safely removed from paper with n-Heptane, sold commercially as Bestine.) Also, bottom half of the rear hinge of this book has been re-glued, resulting in some stiffness to exterior of the spine, there. Furthermore, head and heel of red cloth spine-covering are frayed, and all four board outer corners are poking through the red cloth to the extent of a quarter-inch. So: not a pristine copy, though internal pages are blessedly clean & free of scribblings -- aside from the aforementioned 1907 father-to-son Christmas gift inscription to first blank. Totals 287 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Variations plaisantes sur un thème grave pour orchestre et harpe obligée. A Monsieur A. Blondel. Autograph musical manuscript signed

Bellamy Sr. Paris" at upper inner margins.With the autograph signature of the composer ("Roger-Ducasse") and date ("Octobre 1906") to lower portion of title. Includes two autograph dedications, one to the harpist Albert Blondel at upper margin of title and the other "A Jean Aubry, en souvenir du 24 février. Très amicalement R.D." to the verso of the second leaf.The complete score of this work for harp in orchestral reduction, with the harp part notated in blue ink and the orchestral part in red. With numerous annotations, corrections, and performance markings in pencil in another hand, almost exclusively to the harp part.Slightly worn and soiled; short tears and remnants of sewing thread to inner margins. Variations plaisantes was first performed in Paris on January 24, 1909, with the renowned harpist Marcel Grandjany (1891-1975) at the harp. A. Durand published the work in both full score and piano reduction in the same year.Roger-Ducasse "studied composition with Fauré, counterpoint with Gédalge, harmony with Pessard and piano with Charles-Auguste de Bériot. He was a founding member of the Société Musicale Indépendante (1909) along with Ravel, Vuillermoz and Koechlin. A friend of Debussy's, he gave an early of performance En blanc et noir with him in December 1916, and was with Chouchou (Debussy's daughter) when Debussy died." Barbara L. Kelly in Grove Music Online.Music critic Georges Jean Aubry (1882-1949), the second dedicatee, "belonged to a circle of avant-garde musicians and littérateurs and was a frequent contributer to periodicals. Encouraged by his 20-year friendship with Debussy, he wrote enthusiastically in support of contemporary French composers, noting similarities between their music and that of the 18th century (Couperin, Rameau)." Grove Music Online.This attractive and carefully executed manuscript, with its numerous annotations and corrections, offers harpists and scholars alike an intriguing glimpse of the genesis of the piece. Many of the corrections were incorporated into the Durand edition; some differences between this manuscript and the published version, however, remain.

      The American Journal of Anatomy, Vol. V, No. 2, Pages 121-131 May 31 1906 - First separate edition. Offprint. Original wrappers. ?The nerve center (ganglion cells) is shown to be the one necessary factor in the formation of the peripheral nerve. When it is removed from the body of the embryo the latter fails to develop. When it is transplanted to abnormal positions in the body of the embryos it then gives rise to nerves which may follow paths, where normally no nerves run, and likewise when the tissues surrounding the center are changed entirely, nerves proceeding from that center may develop as normally. The nerve is therefore a product of the ganglion cell? Ross Harrison.Small chip bottom edge of front cover. A very good copy. Rare offprint. Quality, Value, Experience.

        THE FIFTH QUEEN TRILOGY: THE FIFTH QUEEN: And How She Came to Court; PRIVY SEAL: His Last Venture; and THE FIFTH QUEEN CROWNED: A Romance.

      London:: Alston Rivers/Eveleigh Nash,. 1906 - 1908.. First editions. Three volumes. Arthur Marwood's copies, with his ownership signature on front endpaper of THE FIFTH QUEEN and the FIFTH QUEEN CROWNED being the DEDICATION COPY, INSCRIBED ON THE DATE OF PUBLICATION, [to] "Mr. & Mrs. Arthur Marwood / Always affectionately from / Ford M. H. / 26th March MCMVIII." The "Fifth Queen" trilogy is one of Ford's best-known achievements and is considered, as Joseph Conrad termed it, "the swan song of historical romance." Based on the life of the fifth wife of Henry VIII--Catherine Howard, Queen Consort of England from 1540 until 1541--who married Henry on July 28, 1540, at Oatlands Palace, in Surrey, almost immediately after the annulment of his marriage to Anne of Cleves, and was beheaded after less than two years of marriage on the grounds of treason for committing adultery while married to the King. The recipient and dedicatee, Arthur Marwood, was a good friend of Ford's, involved with him and his magazine,''The English Review," and the model for (or at least partially so) "Christopher Tietjens" in one of Ford's most famous works--his PARADE'S END tetralogy. Ford himself was said to have always made much of Tietjens's resemblance to Marwood [Mizener, THE SADDEST STORY]. All three volumes with spines tanned and scattered foxing to page edges--about very good or better. The first volume with only moderate wear but endpapers darkened (due to the binding) and first few leaves foxed, otherwise very good or better; the second volume is a little rougher, with spine folds rubbed and ends beginning to fray, otherwise very good; the third volume is very good or better. .

      Boston 1906, Houghton. FIRST EDITION. Green cloth, 2 vol.set. 475+534p., very good, top gilt. FIRST & LIMITED EDITION OF. 200 COPIES. WITH HEARN'S MANUSCRIPT LEAF TIPPED IN. RARE !. THE FIRST & LIMITED EDITION OF 200 COPIES WITH MANUSCRIPT This work was issued in two basic editions: First Limited Edition of 200 Copies with Manuscript, and the First Trade edition, both in 2 volume sets. The FIRST LIMITED EDITION OF 200 COPIES contains a sheet of Hearn's actual holographic and penned manuscript, properly tipped in volume one. There are only two Hearn leaf book titles by Hearn: this example, and the other title is the complete Writings of Lafcadio Hearn in 16 volumes. The trade edition of this title looks quite similar to the Limited Edition, in that both are bound in green cloth with top gilt, but the Limited Edition has a manuscript leaf and paper lables on the spine. This has always been one of Hearn's rarest and most desirable titles for collectors & libraries alike. This is essentially a bio- graphy by his very close friend and fellow writer. Hearn has referred to Ms. Bisland as his "...literary brother" see the quote in volume 1, p.389. Please see our other listings for a manuscript letter from Hearn to Bisland whom he correspon- ded with often. Because Bisland carried on an extensive cor- respondence with Hearn, her ability to write a true & proper biography was a foregone conclusion. This set is illustrated with 16 photos and gravures, with frontispieces of Hearn. By and large the best and most reliable of all Hearn biogra- phies due to Bisland's primary knowledge of Hearn, something most other biographers can not say. For references see BAL 7944. Perkins: p.54-55 for comprehensive bibliographic deta- ils. AN EXCEPTIONALLY RARE MANUSCRIPT LEAF SET ! Color scans can be sent by email.

        The Story of A Fierce Bad Rabbit

      London & New York: Frederick Warne and Co.,, 1906. Sextodecimo. Panorama mounted on pale green linen back, arranged in pairs with text on recto and illustration on facing verso, and folded concertina-style into the original red cloth wallet case, with closing tab heightened with silver, and pictorial label to front cover. Housed in a red flat-backed solander box. With 14 colour illustrations by the author. Sides faded, some marks to covers, a little foxing to linen back of concertina, text and illustrations unaffected. An excellent copy of a publication too easily subject to wear. First edition, first issue, with "London & New York" on the rear cover, in a variant binding not noted by Quinby. At the start of 1906, Potter planned three books in a panoramic form, with 14 pictures and 14 pages of text: The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit, The Story of Miss Moppet, and The Sly Old Cat, but only the first two were published. Issued for the 1906 Christmas market, the books were too easily damaged, so "the shops sensibly refused to stock them because they got unrolled and so bad to fold up again" Potter wrote (Linder, p. 183). The panoramic design was dropped and the books brought into line with the rest of the series in 1916 (see item 36 below). The Warne archive contained two copies of this red variant, both stamped "Not to be taken away". Perhaps the red outer case was judged to be a mismatch with the green linen-backed material inside it and it remained a trial binding. It is certainly much the rarer of the two.

        AUBREY BEARDSLEY An Issue of Five Drawings Illustrative of Juvenal and Lucian

      London: [Leonard Smithers], 1906. First edition, LIMITED TO ONLY 120 HAND-NUMBERED SETS. Proof Copies of the Plates. Five plates by Aubrey Beardsley "to free in design for general circulation" printed on Japan vellum. Foolscap folio, loose as issued, now housed in a fine portfolio of linen backed handmade paper covered board chemise in a handsome white alum-backed slipcase of plum paper-covered boards, the spine with burgundy morocco label lettered and trimmed in ornate gilt. Title-leaf, contents leaf, five plates, colophon leaf. A very fine copy, beautifully preserved. VERY SCARCE COLLECTION OF FIVE PUBLISHED ILLUSTRATIONS CONSIDERED TOO RISQUÉ FOR GENERAL PUBLICATION, three illustrating Juvenal's "Sixth Satire," and two prepared for Lucian's "True History". "This issue contains five exceedingly brilliant Drawings by the late Aubrey Beardsley which have been regarded as too free in design for general circulation. Three of these illustrate THE SIXTH SATIRE OF JUVENAL (the Satire against Woman), and the remaining two designs were intended for LUCIAN'S TRUE HISTORY issued about twelve years ago, but were never included in the volume. These Drawings are printed from the original blocks, and as only a few engraver's proofs have previously been pulled, the impressions are perfectly clear, and may be regarded (considering the few copies now printed) as Proofs." - Colophon.

        PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM Of IRON, COPPER, And COAL MINING COMPANY OPERATIONS, 1906 - 1910. Plus Blueprints, Photographs of the New York Aqueduct and Bridges in Connecticut (1912), Personal Scenes from the Photographer's Travels, etc.

      (n. p.). Circa 1906 - 1912. Dark olive green cloth "Moore's Loose Leaf" post binder, numbered and ruled paper leaves printed recto only; photos affixed to rectos. Light soiling and wear to boards and paste-downs; light soiling to beginning and end leaves and occasional margins; light tan discoloration from paste backing to many photos and to some facing blank versos. Few photos under-/ over-developed or slightly blurry, but most crisp, clear and well-contrasted. VG condition overall.. 251 leaves, including 22 unused preliminary leaves and occasional blank leaf separators; two unused sets of "Moore's Moveable Markers" (alphabetical tab dividers) bound in at rear. 476 b/w silver gelatin photographs affixed to leaves with paste, many numbered, captioned and/ or denoting general location. Most ~ 1-3/4" x 2-1/2"; some 3" x 4"; few ~ 4" x 5" or larger; very few hand-colored. Additional illustrations include one half-tone fold-out of a grouping of six images from the album (6-3/4" x 9-1/2"); two half-tone b/w images of mining apparatus with printed captions; three blueprints (avg. 4-1/2" x 7-1/2"; and seven envelopes containing ~75 negatives. 5-3/4" x 8-3/8" A detailed photo album depicting various aspects of the operations, technology, and locations of mining companies in Michigan, Colorado and Pennsylvania, presumably compiled by a publicity photographer. The photographs are neatly organized into headed and/or titled sections. Although primarily showcasing the buildings, equipment, etc., involved, they also include both posed and action shots of managing staff, miners at work, and possibly the miners' or other employees' families, as well. The operations depicted include Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Company's Ishpeming, Negaunee, Maas, Salisbury, Cliff Shaft, Princeton and Austin mines, as well as a shipment of ore being loaded at Marquette, presumably belonging to CCI Co (1908); Calumet and Hecla's Red Jacket Shaft, Whiting System at Tamarack, a man-skip, etc. (1908); Michigan Smelter's furnace house, sluiceway, electric locomotor, cooling slag, and more (1908); Plymouth Coal Company's (PA) plant, colliery, compressor, shafts, and named workers (1906?); Liberty Bell Mill (ca 1912); and others. Additionally, one section is devoted to what appears to be a surveying crew for the New York Aqueduct in Stevenson, Connecticut. Sections of personal photographs intersperse many of the professional photographs, most dated 1909-11, and include friends and scenery in Big Indian, NY; Deertrail, Mt. McClellan, Pike's Peak, Clear Creek, Garden of the Gods, etc., Colorado; a rodeo or horse race in Cheyenne, WY; and both hiking and mining in Moab, UT. All in all, a remarkable photographic documentation of the early turn-of-the-century iron, copper and coal mining operations of some of the biggest mining companies at the time.

Planck selbst verbürgt sich für deren Inhalt und behält damit Recht, denn Mosengeils Dissertation ist wegweisend für weitere Forschungen auf dem Gebiet der relativistischen Thermodynamik. - Stempel auf Titel.
