        ALSs - 8 eigenhändige Briefe mit eigenhändiger Unterschrift "Branco" und "Branca".

      - Berlin und Rittergut Hansdorf, Schlesien 15.XI.1906 bis 21.III.1917. 19 Seiten meist gr.-8°. Teilweise mit gedrucktem Briefkopf "Kgl. Geologisch-palaeontologisches Institut und Museum". Der erste Brief leicht fleckig. Wilhelm von Branca (ursprgl. Branco) (1844-1928), Geologe und Paläontologe, Direktor des Museums für Naturkunde in Berlin. - An den Geologen und Paläontologen Wilhelm Salomon-Calvi in Heidelberg, dessen Bemühungen um ein Ordinariat an einer deutschen Universität er unterstützte. - - Berlin 15.XI.1906. ". Soweit ich gefragt worden bin habe ich schon bei verschiedenen Gelegenheiten Ihren Namen als einen der auf die Liste zu bringenden genannt. Mir scheint auch . daß Sie in Greifswald jetzt Aussicht haben ." - - 9.X.1908. ". Dass Ihnen Kön[igsberg] entgangen ist, dazu muß man Ihnen im Grunde Glück wünschen. Ich war 4 Jahre dort. Jeder, der hinkommt, wünscht sich sogleich fort, obgleich die Menschen dort sehr nett sind. Aber das Klima! ." - - 1.II.1909. Dank für die Übersendung von Salomon-Calvis großem Werk über die Adamellogruppe. ". Da haben Sie etwas Prächtiges geschaffen; hoffentlich kommt es zur rechten Stunde nach Leipzig an Credner, der, wie ich glauben möchte, in der Berufungssache auch mitzusprechen haben wird . - - Der Akad. werde ich Donn. Ihr Buch übergeben u. das Nöthige dazu sagen ." - - 9.VII.1912. ". Sollten Sie nach L. kommen, dann möchte ich Ihnen den (Titular) Prof. Dr. Stremme . warm als Nachfolger empfehlen; meine rechte Hand im Unterricht, in Geol. wie Pal. ganz trefflich beschlagen ." - - Rittergut Hansdorf 5.IX.1912. ". Ganz vertraulich möchte ich Ihnen mitteilen, daß ich, wegen Hannov. befragt, Sie, Stremme, Petraschek sehr empfohlen habe . Ich glaube aber, daß die chemisch-technische Richtung Stremmes den Herren am meisten zusagen wird ." - - 26.X.1912. ". Dass Sie abgelehnt haben, um sich nicht zu verschlechtern, ist sehr erklärlich . sein Sie zufrieden, dass Sie in H. bleiben konnten. Universität ist doch etwas anderes als Polytechnikum ." - - 21.III.1917. ". Das Ministerium ist auf unsre Vorschläge betr. Zweiteilung nicht eingegangen . da sie ein neues Institut u. doppelte Kosten gefordert hätten. Es hat daher nur Einen für Geol. u. Pal. berufen, und zwar Pompeckj, da hier die große palaeont. Sammlung doch das Schwergewicht bildet . - - Jedenfalls gehört als Vertreter der Allgem. Geologie ein Mann, der wie Sie in Mineral., Chemie, Physik, Petrogr. wurzelt und nicht, wie Penck hier am liebsten es gehabt hätte, ein Mann, der wie Stille dem Allem mehr oder weniger fern steht und nur Tektonik betreibt. P bildet sich ein, die Geologie wie ein Fachmann zu überschauen, er hat aber nur oberflächliche Kenntnisse in ihr; sonst würde er auch nicht behaupten können, die Histor. Geol. stehe mitten zwischen Allgemeiner Geol. u. Pal. . Ich gehe sogar so weit zu sagen, daß Hist. G. von der Geologie nur den Namen hat; sonst hieße es nicht azoisch, palaeozoisch etc, sondern palaeogaiisch. Alle Veränderungen, die den Sedimentgest. begegnen durch Tektonik, Metamorphismus, ihre Entstehung überhaupt sind natürl. allgem. Geol. und nicht mehr historische. Das durchschaut P. nicht, so einfach es ist ." - - Beiliegend der Abklatsch eines eigenhändigen Briefes von Salomon-Calvi an Branca, Heidelberg 28.VIII.1912, die Besetzung der Leipziger Professur betreffend. ". Dem Vernehmen nach hat Stille den Ruf bekommen . Ich gehe also wieder einmal ganz leer aus ." [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Kokoro, Lotos, KyuShu, (German Language) Set of Three Limited Editions in Vellum

      Frankfort: Anstalt, Rutten & Loening., 1906-1908. Classic works on the spirituality, art, philosophy, and culture of Japan. First and limited German editions in vellum with decorations and woodcuts by Emil Orlik. Hearn's work on early Japan is unique and unrivaled in it's essential perceptions. He became a naturalized Japanese citizen under the name Koizumi Yakumo. In March of 1900, Austrian artist Emil Orlik undertook his first voyage to the Far East in order to learn at its source how to master the techniques which were of such fascination to him. He absorbed much knowledge from the artists, woodblock-carvers and printers with whom he worked. Orlik met the author Lafcadio Hearn while in Japan and later translated Hearn's books into German and illustrated them. These editions are the result of their friendship and mutual fascination with Japan and its culture. . With the exception of the last chapter, all of the Kokoro chapters are translated from Hearn's "Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan". Kyusu is a complete translation of "Kokoro". Lotos is a translation of 'Out of the East'. Printed on Japanese vellum with illustrations and decorations throughout. Surface soil to vellum covers. Small 1907 pon to 2 volumes. Sound bindings and text blocks

        Drainage Problems of the East: Being A Revised and Enlarged Edition of "Oriental Drainage"

      Bombay.: "Times of India".. 1906.. 2 volumes. Volume I: Black and white illustrations, xxxi + 378pp + [22]pp advertisments bound in at rear, glossary, index. Volume II: 77 folding maps, plans and diagrams including Plan of the Town of Singapore for the Disposal of Nightsoil; Drainage System of Penang; Map of Bombay as it Existed in 1672; Geological Map of the Island of Bombay and large Main Drainage of the City of the Calcutta. A handsome set in full maroon leather gilt, raised bands on spine. This book is a greatly expanded edition of the author's earlier work "Oriental Drainage" which C. Carkeet James wrote after realising that although there were many books on sewage disposal and drainage they all were written with Western Countries in mind and none taking into account the conditions in Asia. Following the success of "Oriental Drainage" C. Carkeet James began to prepare a second edition however while researching for this edition he found that there had been so many improvements and new methods that "nothing short of a new book would meet the requirements of the subject..." In the preface of "Drainage Problems of the East" he explains that "Apart from the bringing up to date and expansion of the Chapters taken from the original work, new Chapters have been added, dealing with such highly instructive drainage-systems as those of Karachi, Calcutta, Rangoon, Singapore, Penang, Shanghai and Alexandria, as well as with sanitary conditions in other Eastern countries and with some of the more important enterprises that have been undertaken in recent years in India and the Far East." .

        WHITE FANG

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1906. First edition. Fine. Title page a cancel, as usual. A Fine copy of the book. Bright spine gilt, white cover lettering and illustration complete, sharp corners, and no internal ownership marking. Page block slightly separated between pgs. 6 and 7, otherwise the book appears unread and untouched. Jack London's classic novel of the adventures of a domesticated wolf-dog, sometimes viewed as metaphor for the way primitive man came to be civilized. The novel was originally published in serial in Outing magazine, and when it was released proved immensely popular. Indeed, White Fang would help enshrine London as an American household name. It has since been translated into over 89 languages and adapted into multiple films. "His vigorous, incisive style, unconventionality, and sympathetic understanding of nature and of her children in the rough, never combined to better advantage than in "White Fang." (Contemporary New York Times Review). Fine.

Brussels: L. Vandamme, 1906. |~||~||~||~||~| A sheer delight of science fiction. This imaginative illustrated work by Henri Alvin Correa (1876-1910), a little-known but extremely gifted Brazilian artist who trained with Detaille and Jean Brunet, still remains a captivating illustrated book over 100 years after it was published. The turn-of-the-century illustrations of the invading Martians, their human captives, and destroyed cities provide a perfect complement to Wells' apocalyptic text. Edition limited to 500 copies. That this Sci-Fi work has remained almost completely unknown can only be attributed to its great rarity. The Library of Congress has only the 1981 reprint (for which the text was translated into Portuguese) published at Rio de Janeiro by Editora Nova Fronteira. Some light toning and staining, overall a very good copy of a rare book. Unknown to Wick, Turn of the Century 1885-1910.

        Lord Randolph Churchill, Churchill's godson's set

      London: Macmillan and Company, 1906. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This two-volume British first edition, only printing of Churchill's biography of his father belonged to Churchill's godson. The bookplate of Roger Moreton Frewen is affixed to the front pastedowns of both volumes. These books come to us from the Frewen collection, which features copies of Churchill?'s books spanning more than half a century, from 1906 to 1958, and three generations of Churchill?'s relatives on his mother?'s side, including his Aunt Clara and her descendents.  The collection is noteworthy for copies inscribed by Churchill, as well as copies such as this one with family bookplates. Roger d'Hauteville Moreton Frewen (1914-1972) was the son of Churchill's first cousin, Hugh Frewen, and grandson of Churchill's Aunt Clara, his mother's elder sister. Hugh's childhood was marked by visits with his Churchill and Leslie cousins, including Winston, who was nine years older than Hugh. Roger was born during the First World War while his father was serving on the front and his godfather, Winston, was First Lord of the Admiralty. Roger was born in London, educated in Switzerland and Cambridge. A near-fatal car accident in 1933 and tuberculosis contracted during recovery nearly killed Roger and permanently impaired his health. Despite his health, Roger joined the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in 1938. Posted to the British Embassy in Berne during WWII, Roger listened to German and Italian military signals and reported information to Britain, drove lorries with military supplies through occupied France, and rescued escaped prisoners of war by crossing into Germany and Italy and bringing them to safety in Switzerland. Driven by income needs as his family grew, in the decades after the war Roger had careers in finance and real estate. Roger's son, Jonathan, from whom these books come to us, recalls that Roger excelled at mathematics and languages and was "a kind man, an amusing raconteur... and a good Father." Jonathan also recalls that "Winston was an excellent godparent" who "never forgot a birthday or Christmas, no matter his duties." In addition to these two volumes, the Frewen collection includes books by Churchill inscribed to his godson spanning 1930 to the mid 1950s. Lord Randolph Churchill is Winston Churchill's biography of his father, concentrating on Lord Randolph's career in Parliament after 1880. When he first contemplated writing his father's biography Winston Churchill was still an itinerant soldier and war correspondent who had yet to write his first book. By the time the work was published in 1906, Winston Churchill already had half a dozen published volumes to his credit and half a decade in Parliament. 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. This is the first edition, only printing, rebound apparently for W. H. Smith & Son's Library before being acquired by Roger Frewen. The sticker of W. H. Smith & Son's Library of London on each rear pastedown is the only previous ownership mark other than the bookplates. Founded in the late 1700s, W. H. Smith & Son's operated a lending library from 1860 to 1961. The bindings are red cloth with gilt rules, title, author, and volume number on the spines. Condition is good plus. The bindings are square and tight, with nicely rounded spines, but showing some wear to extremities, sunning of the spines, and some differential fading of the covers. The contents remain bright with intermittent spotting throughout, typical for the edition. We note a roughly .25 inch stain to the bottom fore edge of each text block that does not affect either the margins within or the bottom edge.

        Memorials of Edward Burne-Jones

      The Macmillan Company, New York & London 1906 - Thick 8vo. Original olive green fine-ribbed cloth, gilt spine. With fabulous three-page letter by Edward Burne-Jones affixed to front free fly containing a caricature drawing by EBJ. The letter is written to a "Nora" and appears to be entirely in the guise of young child writing (replete with bad grammar and misspelled words) in the third person; hence the illustration at the end showing a young child (stick figure) pointing to an easel with two stick figures as composition. A wonderful, one-of-a-kind letter by Burne-Jones, written on his "Grange" stationary (49, North End Road, West Kensington, N.W.), undated, but with "Wensday" (sc\ic) at top.

        Traite de photographie stereoscopique. Theorie et pratique. BOUND WITH Traite pratique de photographie stereoscopique

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1906. Boards. Near Fine. 2 titles in one volume. VIII, 248, [V]-VII, [1] pages + 20 plates + [249]-251 pages. Second title [1]-207 pages. Half calf over marbled boards. Large 8vo. 6 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches. Light browning to pages. Boards. The first title, "Traite de photographie stereoscopique. Theorie et pratique," was originally issued with the 20 plates in a separate cloth-backed portfolio. Here the plates have been bound in. Both titles are scarce, with Fabre's work not present in the Epstean collection as of this writing. Both titles deal with the theory and practice of stereoscopy. This artform / photographic technique allows the photographer to take a photograph which can be viewed later in three dimensions. It is accomplished by taking the same image with 2 lenses slightly separated from one another, which when viewed through a stereoscope with similarly separated lenses allows the viewer to see depth in the image. A fascinating parlor trick since the 1850s and still something that wows the public who often hasn't seen it. Both titles are scarce, with fewer than a dozen examples in book form in library systems participating in Worldcat/OCLC.

        The Island of Doctor Moreau: A Possibility

      NY: Duffield, 1906. 12mo. 249 pp. Original yellow-stamped blue-green cloth.; somewhat shaken, some leaves roughly opened, but a very good copy. First American edition, third issue, with the original Stone & Kimball sheets and a new title page cancel for Duffield. Signed by Wells on the half-title below a self-caricature, showing himself seated and holding a cup of tea; the drawing by Wells is much larger (approximately 2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches) than those previously publicized, though they are by no means common. The first American edition was published by Stone & Kimball in 1896; the next year, the Stone & Kimball sheets were issued by Stone, in a new binding stamped with his name only at the base of the spine. In 1906 Duffied purchased "the entire goodwill, assets, plates, sheets, and publishing plant of the Stone Company" (Kramer History of Stone & Kimball, p. 136). Included were copies of the Stone issue, in the Stone binding, for which Duffield printed a new title page, as here.

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

      Folio (ca. 350 x 270 mm.) Disbound. 1f. (title), [i] (blank), [i] (dedication), 14, 1f. (blank) pp. Notated in blue and red ink on 22-stave music paper blindstamped "H. Lard Esnault Ed. 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, here 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 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. An attractive and carefully executed manuscript.

        Lord Randolph Churchill, Churchill's godson's set

      London: Macmillan and Company, 1906. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This two-volume British first edition, only printing of Churchill's biography of his father belonged to Churchill's godson. The bookplate of Roger Moreton Frewen is affixed to the front pastedowns of both volumes. These books come to us from the Frewen collection, which features copies of ChurchillÂ’s books spanning more than half a century, from 1906 to 1958, and three generations of ChurchillÂ’s relatives on his motherÂ’s side, including his Aunt Clara and her descendents.  The collection is noteworthy for copies inscribed by Churchill, as well as copies such as this one with family bookplates. Roger d'Hauteville Moreton Frewen (1914-1972) was the son of Churchill's first cousin, Hugh Frewen, and grandson of Churchill's Aunt Clara, his mother's elder sister. Hugh's childhood was marked by visits with his Churchill and Leslie cousins, including Winston, who was nine years older than Hugh. Roger was born during the First World War while his father was serving on the front and his godfather, Winston, was First Lord of the Admiralty. Roger was born in London, educated in Switzerland and Cambridge. A near-fatal car accident in 1933 and tuberculosis contracted during recovery nearly killed Roger and permanently impaired his health. Despite his health, Roger joined the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in 1938. Posted to the British Embassy in Berne during WWII, Roger listened to German and Italian military signals and reported information to Britain, drove lorries with military supplies through occupied France, and rescued escaped prisoners of war by crossing into Germany and Italy and bringing them to safety in Switzerland. Driven by income needs as his family grew, in the decades after the war Roger had careers in finance and real estate. Roger's son, Jonathan, from whom these books come to us, recalls that Roger excelled at mathematics and languages and was "a kind man, an amusing raconteur... and a good Father." Jonathan also recalls that "Winston was an excellent godparent" who "never forgot a birthday or Christmas, no matter his duties." In addition to these two volumes, the Frewen collection includes books by Churchill inscribed to his godson spanning 1930 to the mid 1950s. Lord Randolph Churchill is Winston Churchill's biography of his father, concentrating on Lord Randolph's career in Parliament after 1880. When he first contemplated writing his father's biography Winston Churchill was still an itinerant soldier and war correspondent who had yet to write his first book. By the time the work was published in 1906, Winston Churchill already had half a dozen published volumes to his credit and half a decade in Parliament. 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. This is the first edition, only printing, rebound apparently for W. H. Smith & Son's Library before being acquired by Roger Frewen. The sticker of W. H. Smith & Son's Library of London on each rear pastedown is the only previous ownership mark other than the bookplates. Founded in the late 1700s, W. H. Smith & Son's operated a lending library from 1860 to 1961. The bindings are red cloth with gilt rules, title, author, and volume number on the spines. Condition is good plus. The bindings are square and tight, with nicely rounded spines, but showing some wear to extremities, sunning of the spines, and some differential fading of the covers. The contents remain bright with intermittent spotting throughout, typical for the edition. We note a roughly .25 inch stain to the bottom fore edge of each text block that does not affect either the margins within or the bottom edge.

        THE SONG OF ROLAND

      Cambridge, Massachusetts: Riverside Press, for Houghton Mifflin & Co, 1906. No. 33 OF 220 COPIES n. Hardcover. 445 x 292 mm (17 1/2 x 11 1/2"). xxxiv pp., [1] colophon. Translated from the Old French by Isabel Butler. No. 33 OF 220 COPIES. Publisher's quarter vellum over paper boards patterned with rows of alternating fleurs-de-lys and rosettes, flat spine with ink titling. In a (somewhat worn) folding chemise. Printer's device on title page, large arch-topped vignette at beginning of text, and five roundel vignettes, all colored by hand. Printed in red and black with shoulder notes printed in gold. Blumenthal "Printed Book in America," p. 65; Warde 71; Kelly 33. IN MINT CONDITION. This is one of designer Bruce Rogers' masterworks for the Riverside Press, a legend from the Age of Chivalry presented in a distinctly Medieval style, with text in black letter and illustrations inspired by the stained glass windows in Chartres Cathedral. Based on an historically minor eighth century military encounter, and composed at the end of the 11th century, the "Chanson de Roland" is described in the Italica Press publicity for a new edition "as the first masterpiece of French vernacular literature and one of the world's greatest epic poems. The earliest extant example of a medieval chanson de geste ('song of deeds'), its four thousand lines represent the most famous literary celebration of Carolingian mythology from the Middle Ages." For us, the Rogers edition is among the first accessible versions of "Roland," which, surprisingly, seems not to have been translated into English until late in the 19th century. The Indiana-born Rogers (1870-1957) was one of the leaders of the American typographic renaissance in the early 20th century. According to Blumenthal, "his greatness lay in the felicity of his brilliant manipulation of type and ornament, in his command of all the basic processes and their consummation in beautiful books--noble books that can be read with pleasure and owned with pride--not objets d'art to be stored behind glass." In a paper presented to the Bibliographical Society in 1915, A. W. Pollard proclaimed this volume "magnificent," noting that "this daring attempt to suggest a thirteenth century manuscript ranks high among Mr. Rogers' successes." Rogers himself was pleased with the work, including it in the so-called "Rogers Thirty," comprising his most successful commissions. The present copy is virtually unchanged since the day it left the press.
