        Beknopte historie, van het Mogolsche keyzerryk, en de zuydelyke aangrensende ryken. Batavia, C.C. Renhard, 1758. Folio. With a woodcut device on title-page (VOC ship on a shield, flanked by Poseidon and Amphitrite, topped by an armillary sphere), folding letterpress genealogical table, and 2 large woodcuts (plus 1 repeat) with letterpress text, representing the seals of 3 Mogul rulers (each with 2 concentric circles with 11 or 13 smaller circles in between, with the ruler's name in the centre and his predecessors numbered in the surrounding circles). Modern blue paper wrappers.

      Bijdragen taal-, land- en volkenkunde Ned.-Indie, LXI (1906), pp. 374-376; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 561. First edition of a history of the Mogul Empire and its southern possessions. The foreword notes that the anonymous author based his account of northern India partly on François Valentijn's history of the Dutch East Indies, Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indiën (1724-1726), vol. IV, no. 2, but that he made many additions and corrections. For the southern regions, however, he turned to natives familiar with their antiquities ("ervarene inlanders in hare oudheden"). The addenda leaf, loosely inserted in this copy, is often lacking. The woodcut circles, on pp. 33, 36 & 39 represent seals of the Mogul rulers Eurangzeeb, Prince Mohamed Azem and finally Mahomed Sjah (1719-1748), with the names of their predecessors numbered. The book includes information on the Moguls' relations with the Persians, Afghans and others and comments on the silk trade.The Mogul Empire was an imperial power that ruled most of the Indian subcontinent from the early 16th to the mid-19th centuries. At the height of its power, around 1700, it controlled most of the subcontinent and parts of what is now Afghanistan. After 1725 the empire declined rapidly.This was Renhard's most ambitious work as printer to the VOC at Batavia. It is mostly well printed from freshly cast type and gives an excellent overview of the printing office's materials, primarily 17th-century Dutch roman and italic types. It shows the considerable expansion of the press's stock in the preceding years.With the folding table slightly browned, a small hole in 1 leaf and a small marginal tear in the title-page, but generally in fine condition, with generous margins and including the errata leaf.

        [The Fifth Queen trilogy:] The Fifth Queen; Privy Seal; The Fifth Queen Crowned.

      London: Alston Rivers; Eveleigh Nash,, 1906-8. 3 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, decoration to spines, titles to spines and front covers gilt. Spines slightly faded, a couple of hinges cracked but holding, contents lightly foxed. A very good set. First editions, first impressions. Dedication copy of The Fifth Queen Crowned, inscribed by the author on the date of publication on the front free endpaper, "Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Marwood, always aff[ectionate]ly from Ford M. H. 26th March MCMVIII"; the first volume, The Fifth Queen, has Marwood's ownership signature on the front free endpaper. The dedicatee, Arthur Marwood (1868–1916), was a highly significant figure in Ford's life: "after Madox Brown, Conrad, and James, he was to become the most important man in Ford's life and in his writing" (Saunders, p. 209). Ford met Marwood in 1905, when the two became neighbours — Marwood had moved to Winchelsea, seeking a milder climate for his tuberculosis. In late 1908, the same year the Fifth Queen Crowned was published, Ford founded the radical literary periodical, the English Review, with Marwood's financial backing. When Marwood died from tuberculosis in 1916, his death impressed Ford "more profoundly than any since those of his father and grandfather" (Saunders vol. II, p. 5). The character of Christopher Tietjens, the protagonist of Ford's war tetralogy (1924–1928), was partly a tribute to Marwood, "from whom he took Tietjens's grand Yorkshire background, mathematical skills and habit of 'tabulating from memory the errors in the Encyclopaedia Britannica'" (LRB, Vol. 34, No. 19). The set is from the collection of Thomas Moser, Professor of English at Stanford University, though unmarked as such; he published a psychological biography of Ford Madox Ford in 1980.

      - VICTOR VASARELY, Pécs 1906 - 1997 Annet-sur-Marne bei Paris, Siebdruck, rechts unten mit Bleistift signiert, links unten mit Bleistift limitiert: 110/250, Rahmengröße: 96,5 x 94 cm, Der Rahmen, mit ein paar kleinen Kratzern, Zustand: Rahmen wurde nicht geöffnet, Blatt an den Rändern außerhalb der Darstellung leicht stockfleckig, in der Darstellung ein paar kleine Kratzer. , Wenn es hängt fällt dies aber NICHT auf. Victor Vasarely wird am 9. April 1906 in Pécs, Ungarn, als Gyözö Vásárhelyi geboren. 1927 beginnt Vasarely, seine künstlerische Ausbildung an einer privaten Zeichenschule in Budapest. Im folgenden Jahr wechselt er zur Ausbildungsstätte "Mühely" (dt. "Werkstatt") unter der Leitung von Sándor Bortnyik, an der in erster Linie das Gedankengut des Bauhauses vermittelt wird. Nach seiner Übersiedelung nach Paris 1930 arbeitet Vasarely erfolgreich als Gebrauchsgrafiker und erforscht dabei systematisch die optischen und emotionalen Möglichkeiten verschiedener grafischer Mittel. Dies bringt ihn 1947 zu der Erkenntnis, dass mit geometrischen Mitteln Sinnesempfindungen hervorgerufen werden können, die neue Ideen über Raum, Materie und Energie vermitteln. Er entwickelt eine eigenständige geometrische Abstraktion, deren Variationen zu optischen Bildmustern mit kinetischen Effekten führen. In einem Gitterwerk ordnet der Künstler geometrische Formen in leuchtenden Farben so an, dass dabei für das Auge der Eindruck einer fluktuierenden Bewegung entsteht. Vasarely trägt damit wesentlich zur Entstehung der Op-Art bei. Mit der Ausgestaltung der Universität in Caracas 1954 beginnt sein reges Engagement für die Kunst im öffentlichen Raum. Er entwirft Wandbilder aus Metall und Keramik, vor allem für Gebäude in Frankreich. Daneben sind seine Arbeiten von 1955 bis 1968 regelmäßig auf der documenta zu sehen. Für die XX. Olympiade in München entwirft Vasarely das offizielle spiralenförmige Logo. Im Jahr 1976 gründet der Künstler die Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence, mit deren Hilfe 1981 ein Institut für zeitgenössische Formgestaltung und Architektur eingerichtet wird. 1976 eröffnet das Vasarely-Museum in seiner Geburtsstadt Pécs, ein zweites folgt 1987 in Schloß Zichy/Budapest. Victor Vasarely stirbt am 15. März 1997 in Paris, die von ihm gegründete Stiftung muss kurz darauf schließen. Durch die Aufarbeitung des Nachlasses Vasarelys durch seine Tochter Michelle ist die Pflege der beliebten Bildwelt des Künstlers aber gesichert.

[4], 281 [1]; [4], 222 pp. 4 tables (1 folding), several diagrams and tables in text. Later plain cloth (little rubbed). Internally little age-toned only, title-pages somewhat browned and soiled, a few scattered pencil markings, few pages with light marginal foxing. Provenance: Dr. H. van der Hoeven Kliniek, -utrecht (ownership stamp and signature to title-pages, cropped on 2nd). Very good copy overall. ----Grinstein 17331. RARE FIRST EDITIONS. Volume I with a foreword by Eugen Bleuler, works by C.G. Jung, Franz Riklin, K. Wehrlin and Bleuler. Volume II with works by Franz Riklin, C.G. Jung, Emma Fürst, Ludwig Binswanger and Hermann Nunberg. Offprint from "Journal of Psychology and Neurology", Vol. III-IV, complete with both volumes. In 1906 Jung sent Freud his work on Diagnostic Association studies, the beginning of a close correspondence ongoing until 1913. Freud thereupon invites Jung to come to Vienna. This is where the legendary first meeting of the two psychoanalysts takes place: in an almost non-stop, thirteen-hour conversation, both come close to each other and from that time on work closely together for a few years. For the elder one, this cooperation means that at a time when he is widely respected for his views on infantile sexuality, he gets support by a successful psychiatrist who is neither Austrian nor a Jew, "which meant he saved psychoanalysis from appearing like a kabbalistic cult of a Viennese clique "(Stevens, similar to Zaretsky). ERSTAUSGABEN. Enthält in Band 1 ein Vorwort von Eugen Bleuler, Arbeiten von C.G. Jung, Franz Riklin, K. Wehrlin und Bleuler. Band 2 mit Arbeiten von Franz Riklin, C.G. Jung, Emma Fürst, Ludwig Binswanger und Hermann Nunberg. - Sonder-Abdruck aus "Journal fur Psychologie und Neurologie", Bd. III-IV, komplett mit beiden Bänden. Jung sandte 1906 Freud seine Arbeit über Diagnostische Assoziationsstudien, der Beginn eines bis zum Jahr 1913 dauernden Briefwechsels. Freud lädt Jung daraufhin zu sich nach Wien ein. Hier findet die legendäre erste Begegnung statt: in einem fast pausenlosen, dreizehn Stunden währenden Gespräch kommen die beiden Psychoanalytiker einander nahe. Einige Jahre werden sie von nun an engstens zusammenarbeiten. Für den Älteren bedeutet dies, dass er zu einem Zeitpunkt, da er wegen seiner Ansichten über die infantile Sexualität weithin geachtet ist, von einem erfolgreichen Psychiater unterstützt wird, der darüber hinaus weder Österreicher noch Jude ist, "was bedeutete, dass er die Psychoanalyse davor retten konnte, wie der kabbalistische Kult einer Wiener Clique zu erscheinen" (Stevens, ähnlich auch Zaretsky). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Marwood from Ford Madox Hueffer 9th May 1906". Arthur Marwood (1868–1916), the recipient, was a highly significant figure in Ford's life: "after Madox Brown, Conrad, and James, he was to become the most important man in Ford's life and in his writing" (Saunders, p. 209). Ford met Marwood in 1905, when the two became neighbours — Marwood had moved to Winchelsea, seeking a milder climate for his tuberculosis. The two became particularly intimate in the early part of 1906, around the time this copy was inscribed. In April of that year, Ford took H. G. Wells to lunch where he "had a fine argument with the great Marwood" (Moser, p. 65). When Marwood died from tuberculosis in 1916, his death impressed Ford "more profoundly than any since those of his father and grandfather" (Saunders vol. II, p. 5). The character of Christopher Tietjens, the protagonist of Ford's war tetralogy (1924–1928), was partly a tribute to Marwood, "from whom he took Tietjens's grand Yorkshire background, mathematical skills and habit of 'tabulating from memory the errors in the Encyclopaedia Britannica'" (LRB, Vol. 34, No. 19). From the collection of Thomas Moser, Professor of English at Stanford University, though unmarked as such; he published a psychological biography of Ford Madox Ford in 1980.

        A large vellum-bound photograph album, containing images relating to the family of novelist Frances Mary Peard.

      [c.1906-1935] Folio album containing approximately 300 black and white photographs across 80 untrimmed leaves, 11 additional photographs loosely inserted; a few mounts lacking photographs. Bound in contemp. full Florentine vellum, lettered & dec. in gilt, white string ties; sl. dusted, vellum a little bowed.A fascinating photograph album, containing about 300 black and white images, mainly photographs taken by Helen Peard over the course of her extensive overseas travels. The earliest photographs in the album are dated 1906, and were taken in Cracow. The scenes are mainly topographical, but there are occasional images of local people, including one of a cart driver. The next group are photographs taken in Monte Carlo, dated 1908-09. These scenes of Monaco show an elderly man identified as G.S. Peard; this is George Shouldham Peard, b. 1829, older brother of the popular Victorian novelist Frances Mary Peard. This album was assembled by another relative Helen Peard, and most of the photographs appear to have been taken by her. The vast majority date from the 1930s, and show Helen to have taken at least one, but more likely several, highly adventurous world tours. Among the places visited are Hong Kong, India (Taj Mahal), Egypt (Valley of the Kings, Pyramids), Chile, Panama (Panama Canal), Jerusalem, Costa Rica, Canada, USA (Pasadena and Grand Canyon), Cape Town, Trinidad, Honolulu, the Falkland Islands, Magellan Straits, Juan Fernadez (Robinson Crusoe Island), St. Helena (Longwood), Morocco, Samoa, and Papua New Guinea ('Cannibal Native, Port Moseby, New Guinea, 1933'). Towards the end of the album are several commercially produced leaflets for Canadian Pacific Round the World Cruises, and in several places the vessel the S.S. Empress of Australia is referred to. One photograph, taken on board, shows passengers enjoying a party to celebrate 'Equator Day', i.e. crossing the international date line. Another photograph from on board the ship is captioned 'Group of Europeans on board Empress of Australia World Tour, 1930'. The pictures are rather randomly dispersed throughout the album, and often the chronology is confused. Besides pictures of architectural and topographic interest, the album contains numerous images of family members and acquaintances, as well as several photographs of pets and horses. With the photos are also a few commercially produced postcards and two original sketches.

        Autograph Letter Signed to "My dear Mr. Frohman"

      1906 - Two pages, front and back of "Undershaw, Hindhead, Surrey" mourning stationery. No date, but July 1906. The text of this letter (headed by "Private & Confidential") reads:~You may have heard of my great sorrow. My wife passed away this week.~Her illness and death have naturally turned my thoughts from business, but there is one matter so pressing that I must lose no further time in speaking to you of it.~It was a great shock to me to learn with absolute certainty that Addison Bright has not dealt straight with some of his Clients. I must not mention names but the fact is beyond all doubt. The defalcations were systematic in their nature & considerable in amount.~Since he has treated others so I cannot doubt that I am also a victim, since I have trusted him most absolutely and seen no vouchers of any sort.~It seemed to me that we might make a test case of a single account. If it is wrong all are probably wrong. If it is right, I shall none the less want to make some examination. But we might begin with one small one. I append it, if you could have it verified from New York. It is a most painful business.~Yours very truly~Arthur Conan Doyle~The recipient of this letter was Charles Frohman, American theatrical producer, co-founder of the Theatrical Syndicate, which essentially monopolized theatrical production in the United States.~The first two sentences are startling in their brevity, the second being "My wife passed away this week." ACD and Louise Hawkins had married in 1885, and they had two children, Mary and Kingsley. In 1893 she was diagnosed with consumption, and spent the next thirteen years slowly succumbing to it (he had "Undershaw" built in Hindhead, the highest village in Surrey, because of its reputation for cleansing air). At about the time they were moving in (1897), Doyle fell in love with Jean Leckie; the two of them pledged to have a platonic relationship so that Louise would not be hurt. Louise finally died on 4 July 1906 -- which effectively dates this letter; one can see that ACD must have had many conflicting emotions at the time he wrote this, chief among them a sense of guilt. ACD and Jean Leckie would marry in September 1907.~As for the "matter so pressing" that occupies the rest of this letter. In the late 1890s Doyle had tried his hand at turning several of his Sherlock Holmes adventures into a play; failing at that, he turned to Charles Frohman in America, who put him in touch with the actor/director William Gillette who, with Doyle's acquiescence, re-wrote the play "Sherlock Holmes" and then went on to star in it. The play opened in late 1899, and was a huge hit; some of the Holmes we know today comes not from Doyle's original tales nor from Sidney Paget's illustrations, but from how Gillette played him -- for example, Holmes's pipe became a bent one because the straight one obscured too much of Gillette's face on stage.~The plays in America were produced by Frohman; royalties were sent from Frohman to Doyle's theatrical agent in London, Addison Bright (of the Madbury & Bright Agency). Bright was also the agent for Doyle's brother-in-law E.W. Hornung, who during the late 1890s had written numerous adventures of the gentleman thief Raffles, and had converted that character into a play "Raffles." And most importantly, Bright was the agent for (and friend of) J.M. Barrie, having been instrumental in helping Barrie turn his tale "Peter Pan" into a play (although this play was not published in book form until 1928, it premiered on the stage in December 1904). Hornung and Barrie were the other Bright clients of whom, in this letter, Doyle "must not mention names."~Just prior to this letter, Hornung read a report that "Raffles" had appeared more than a thousand times in America -- and informed his brother-in-law that he hadn't received anything close to that in royalties. Here Doyle is asking Frohman, who had forwarded such royalties to Bright, to examine a sample account to confirm that "defalcations" are [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
