Wrappers worn; corners creased; spine frayed and mostly detached with some loss, reinforced with tape. Slight browning to outer edges; final signature detached. . First Edition. Rare. OCLC and COPAC (two copies only, at The British Library and the University of London). The present copy was apparently used in England in the 1950s. First performed in St. Petersburg on February 7/20, 1907, this was Rimsky-Korsakov's penultimate opera and the last produced in his lifetime, conceived as his opus summum. "Kitezh is often called the 'Russian Parsifal,' and this is justified insofar as WagnerÂ’s last opera was clearly among its models. The miracle music in Acts 3 and 4 resonates with the basso ostinato from the Good Friday Spell, and there is even a sort of Dresden Amen in the last scene... The operaÂ’s opening scene, of which the music is often reheard later, is rightly compared with the Forest Murmurs in Siegfried... Of course, there are also many resonances in Kitezh from earlier Russian opera, of which there was by the early 20th century a distinguished body of 'classics.' Chief among them was GlinkaÂ’s A Life for the Tsar; the collision of national forces in RimskyÂ’s opera was modelled on Act 3 of GlinkaÂ’s, in which the Poles break in on a betrothal ceremony just as the Tatars do in Kitezh, their approach being telegraphed to the audience by a preliminary snatch of their leitmotif between the strains of a wedding song..." Richard Taruskin in Grove music online

        Autograph letter signed (Ò+ SamuelÓ) to his sister-in-law, Susan L. Crane

      ?'Dublin, New Hampshire?", 1906. 2 pp on printed stationery. (6-1/8 x 4 inches; 156 x 102 mm). Fold. Near fine. ?'I am not bankrupt yet?" Clemens opens with his unvarnished comments on the funeral of a friend, ?'Your letter has just come, dear aunt Sue & I am glad to know that our poor old friend is free. It was a curious idea ?' that funeral sermon ?' but it is colord nature! The black man, both here and in savagery, has a gaudy taste in funerals, particularly his own.?" He recounts a story of a long-lost childhood sweetheart, Laura M. Wright ?'HereÕs a romance for you! Forty-eight years, 2 months & 1 day ago I parted from a sweetheart who was 14 years old, & since then I have never seen her nor exchanged a word with her ?' & to-day I got a letter from her! (I remembered her hand.) She is poor, is a widow, in debt, & in desperate need of a thousand dollars. I sent it. Still, I am not bankrupt yet, and if you will tell me what sum I ought to contribute to that funeral sermon I will gladly furnish it.?" He closes with mention of his late wife, ?'Dear me, the letters I am getting these days! If Livy could only see them! They fairly glow with golden compliments É?" In his AUTOBIOGRAPHY, Clemens tells of his shock in hearing from Laura Wright after so many years, ?'It shook me to the foundations É In the place of that carefree little girl of forty-eight years ago, I imagined the world-worn and trouble-worn widow of sixty-two É?" Mrs. WrightÕs letter touched-off a correspondence.

        "Veste Niederhaus Passau" originales Gemälde, Öl auf Leinwand ca. 29x37cm; verso handschriftlich monogrammiert "LB." und betitelt [Maße im dekorativen und aufwendig gearbeiteten Rahmen der renommierten Münchner Fachwerkstatt Petzenhammer 37,5x45,5cm.]

      . Ludwig Bock begann seine künstlerische Ausbildung an der privaten Akademie bei Heinrich Knirr. Unter den Anweisungen von Bernhard Buttersack entwickelte er sich in Haimhausen bei München zum Landschaftsmaler. 1906 wurde er an die Münchener Akademie aufgenommen und wurde Meisterschüler bei Heinrich von Zügel. Seine erste Ausstellung fand 1908 im Rahmen der Sezession statt. Außerdem stellte er in den Jahren danach unter anderem in den über München hinaus bekannten Galerien Thannhauser, Brakl und Heinemann aus. 1908 und 1909 erhielt der die bronzene und silberne Medaille der Münchner Akademie. Eine Reise nach Paris im Jahre 1913, auf der er die französische Moderne, so etwa Werke von Matisse und Cezanne, studierte, beeinflußte ihn nachhaltig. In den Folgejahren löste er sich - wie so manch einer seiner bekannten Mitschüler - deutlich vom Stil seines Lehrers Zügel und entwickelte eine expressive, auf scharfe Konturen und leuchtende Farbigkeit basierende Malerei. 1917 wurde der Künstler Mitglied der Sezession. Seit 1918 folgten regelmäßige Ausstellungen im Münchner Glaspalast sowie in zahlreichen anderen deutschen Städten. Im Jahre 1920 wurde das erste Gemälde Bocks von den Bayerischen Staatsgemäldesammlungen angekauft, es sollten noch weitere folgen. Im Jahre 1927 erhielt er den Professorentitel. Von nun an schuf er fast ausschließlich Stilleben, die sich in seiner späteren Zeit an die Malweise von Carl Schuch anlehnten. 1929 erhielt er den Rom Preis für die Villa Massimo. Nach Kriegsende war Bock an der Wiederbegründung der Münchner Sezession beteiligt und stellte dort regelmäßig mit aus. 1952 erhielt er den Kunstpreis der Stadt München..

        Wanted Poster: "$700.00 Reward For Jesse Coe - Negro. Wanted for Murder of Police Officer Chas. Russell, on night of September 30, 1906."

      Indianapolis, IN: N.P., 1906. A reward bulletin issued by the Indianapolis, IN Chief of Police, Robert Metzger, for gunman Jesse Coe (alias Cole). About 8pm on the night of September 30, 1906, Coe shot officer Charles J. Russell at close range in a neighborhood near 24th Street and Indianapolis Avenue; he was later taken to an Indianapolis hospital, where he died of his wound. Russell's partner, Edward J. Petticord, chased after the alleged gunman (Coe), and was shot in the back by another suspect. Petticord died two days later, and the man accused of killing Petticord was arrested, convicted, and hanged at the Indiana State Prison in February, 1907. Law enforcement officials launched a nationwide manhunt for Coe, who was believed to have left Indianapolis by train, disguised as a laborer. Two years after the shooting, Coe's cousin led authorities to him while he was squirrel hunting in Kentucky; when approached by authorities, Coe was shot dead after pointing his rifle at them. The broadside is rare, with no example held by any OCLC member institution. A presumably later example is held by Kent State, offering a higher reward of $1500 for Coe. Of particular interest on the present example is the penciled notation to the left of Coe's portrait, stating "Capd. Shot - 11/13/06," clearly giving a date that is much earlier than the documented capture and shooting of Coe two years later. A rare ephemeral survival from a high-profile killing of a police officer by an African American. (See http://www.toledoblade.com/Police-Fire/2008/06/22/Error-puts-slain-officer-on-lists-as-a-Toledoan.html). Original lithographed wanted poster, with text and photographic portrait printed in black on recto only; measures 10.75" x 7". Thin strip of paper reinforcement along top edge verso, a few faint folds and small tears; brief penciled notation to left of portrait; Very Good, clean example, without loss.

        Dorfstraße im Spessart am Sonntag"

      - Öl auf Leinwand, links unten signiert und datiert „Eug. Bandell 1906", verso auf dem Keilrahmen von der Künstlerin nochmals signiert und datiert sowie betitelt. 84,5:64 cm. Literatur: S. Sumera, Eugenie Bandell (1858-1918), Eine Frankfurter Malerin – das Spätwerk. Magisterarbeit, Univ. Frankfurt am Main, 1996, Nr. 99; Ausst. Katalog: Frankfurter Malerei seit der Jahrhundertwende. Galerie und Kunstantiquariat Joseph Fach, Frankfurt am Main, 1988, Nr. 6 mit Farbabb. auf dem Titel; Ausst. Katalog: Frauen an der Staffelei – Ein vernachlässigtes Kapitel der Frankfurter Kunstgeschichte. Frankfurter Sparkasse von 1822, Frankfurt am Main 1994. Die Malerin und Radiererin Eugenie Bandell, Tochter eines wohlhabenden Kaufmanns, begann wohl nach privaten Zeichenstudien spätestens 1887 ihre künstlerische Ausbildung an der Zeichenakademie in Hanau und war Schülerin des für seine Ansichten von altertümlichen Straßen und Plätzen bekannten Malers und Zeichners Paul Andorff (1849-1920). Anscheinend besuchte sie in Hanau parallel die private Malschule des bekannten Genre-, Historien- und Landschaftsmalers Georg Cornicelius (1825-1898). Nach Abschluß ihres Studiums in Hanau im Jahr 1895 ging sie nach Frankfurt am Main, um privat die Radiertechnik bei dem Radierer Bernhard Mannfeld (1848-1925) zu erlernen. Ein Weiterstudium schloß sich 1899-1900 am Städelschen Kunstinstitut im Privatatelier des von München kommenden Malers Wilhelm Trübner (1851-1917) an. Zahlreiche Ausstellungen folgten in den nächsten Jahren, so u.a. in Frankfurt, Berlin, München, Baden-Baden, Karlsruhe, Mainz, Wiesbaden, Düsseldorf, Zürich und Paris. Rasch steigender Erfolg brachte ihr im Jahr 1902 ein eigenes Atelier am Städelschen Kunstinstitut ein, das ihr bis zu ihrem Tode zu Verfügung stand. Sie war Mitglied des fortschrittlichen „Frauenkunstverbandes", den 1913 so bekannte Künstlerinnen wie Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945) gegründet hatten.

        [Manuscript] A Record of the Marriage of Swagar Sherley and Mignon Critten, Twenty First of April, Nineteen Hundred and Six [together with] loose clippings, announcements, an issue of "Town and Country", etc. related to this society wedding

      1906. Card. String ties. . Fine. An outstanding example of original "keepsake art". Oblong, 28 by 38 cm. 14 leaves, including cover, with all versos blank. In all respects, this is a gorgeous production, from the front cover with its thick three ribbon bow, with the ribbons running above and below the card, and its monogram surrounded by a laurel wreath, to the final watercolor of a coach heading off in the sunset on a country road, impliedly on the couple's honeymoon and more broadly, to a blissful life together. The artwork is unabashedly pretty, in a confectionary rococo sensibility that even with the more brutal dictates of modernism, doggedly remains dear to the dreamscape fantasy of most aspiring brides. Thus we have a page with two oval slots for photos of the couple surrounded by seraphs and garlands of roses, a wash of baby blue serving as the backdrop. Or the watercolor of three very pretty maids-of-honor, right out of the artwork of Charles Dana Gibson, Howard Chandler Christy, Montgomery Flagg or Maud Humphrey, dressed in the elegance that was the hallmark of fashion at the time. Even a page meant for the pasting of telgrams and featuring telephone poles is of an unalloyed sweetness, with its sprays of violets and a page sounding a horn and dressed in gold and violet. The album was only partly used, with spots intended for photos and clippings remaining blank. It would seem quite plausible that the couple did not fill these spaces because they wished to preserve the album which was already so exquisite in a pristine state. Regardless, the couple were socially important. Among the items included are congratulatory telegrams from soon-to-be President William H. Taft and Nicholas Longworth, the future speaker of the House and the husband of Alice Roosevelt. J. Swagar Sherley (1871 - 1941) was a Democratic U.S. Congressman from Kentucky, elected to seven terms and a one time chairman of the House Appropriations Committee. After being voted out of office in 1918, he practiced law in Washington. Franklin Roosevelt asked him to be his first Director of the Budget but Sherley declined on account of ill health. The bride, Mignon nee Critten, was from Staten Island society -- there was such a thing in those days -- who was featured on the title page of the July 29th, 1905 issue of Town & Country, where we learn she was about to embark on a trip to the Philippines with the Secretary of War William H. Taft's party. Her family estate, "Olivecrest" at Grymes Hill, was where the wedding took place. Also included is a printed copy of Psalm 91, with original watercolored floral decoration and some original pen and ink and watercolored calligraphic lettering.

      1906. Tales of Wit, Practical Jokes, and Life LessonsRanging from the Erotic to the TragicAs Told in Fourteenth Century FlorenceBOCCACCIO, Giovanni. The Decameron… Faithfully translated by J.M. Rigg. With Illustrations by Louis Chalon. London: Henry F. Bumpus, 1906. Two octavo volumes (9 11/16 x 6 7/8 inches; 246 x 175 mm.). xxi, 332; xvi, 404 pp. Twelve color plates by Louis ChalonBound by Frost & Co., Bath (stamp-signed on front blank) ca. 1960 in full red crushed levant morocco, covers double-ruled in gilt, spines with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, gilt board-edges, gilt turn-ins, Cockerel endpapers, all edges gilt. A fine set.The Decameron is a collection of novellas by the 14th-century Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio (1313?-1375). The book is structured as a frame story containing 100 tales told by a group of seven young women and three young men sheltering in a secluded villa just outside Florence to escape the Black Death, which was afflicting the city. Boccaccio probably conceived The Decameron after the epidemic of 1348, and completed it by 1353. The various tales of love in The Decameron range from the erotic to the tragic. Tales of wit, practical jokes, and life lessons contribute to the mosaic. In addition to its literary value and widespread influence (for example on Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales), it provides a document of life at the time. Written in the vernacular of the Florentine language, it is considered a masterpiece of classical early Italian prose.Louis Chalon (1866- 1940) was born in Paris. He studied with Jules Lefevre and Boulanger, and exhibited vast classically inspired paintings in the Salons of the Societe des Artistes Francais where he was awarded an Honorable Mention in 1885, another one in 1898, a Third Class Medal in 1891 and an Honorable Mention at the Expositions Universelles of 1889 and 1900.He supplied many illustrations to the periodicals La Vie Parisienne, L?'Illustration and Figaro Illustre, as well as illustrating several books, including works by Rabelais, Bobbaccio, and Balzac.

        Inscribed Photograph

      1906 - Acclaimed horse jockey who shocked the racing world in 1905 when he easily won the Kentucky Derby at the age of 16. The Kentucky Derby News reported: "Agile was full of speed all the way and Martin never let him down at any of the trip. He drew away under restraint in the last furlong, and was only galloping at the end." 10 x 8-inch rare original 1906 studio portrait -- possibly unique -- by C.C. Cook, depicting a 17-year-old Martin dressed in riding attire and cap, just months after winning the Kentucky Derby. Boldly signed: "To my good friend Slim from Jack." With the addition of the great photographer's signature, identification marking, and date in the lower right-hand corner: "C.C. Cook photo - 1906 [JACK MARTIN]", as well as his full stamp on the back. An exceptional piece of historical horse racing memorabilia in very good condition. It should be noted that generic, unsigned race horse images by C.C. Cook with the back stamp sell for as much as $500. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Bright spine gilt, white cover lettering and illustration complete, sharp corners, and no internal ownership marking.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.

        Die Verwirrungen des Zöglings Törleß.

      Wien und Leipzig, Wiener Verlag, 1906.. 8°. VIII, 316 Seiten. Dekorativer, außergewöhnlich gut erhaltener Leineneinband mit vergoldetem Rückentitel und zwei Dritteln Filzbezug (dieser Filzbezug mit vergoldetem Titel). Der kunstvolle Einband erscheint uns als eine Variante des originalen Verlagseinbandes. Sehr guter Zustand mit nur geringen, äusserlichen Gebrauchsspuren. Nur der obere Schnitt beschnitten - sonst in der unbeschnittenen (aber aufgeschnittenen) Verlagsfassung. Mit ausführlicher, handschriftlicher, privater Widmung auf dem kompletten Vortitel (1920). Die Widmung zitiert den Auszug eines Briefes "...vom 2.März 1920 von Wien nach Berlin". Von uns nicht verifizierbar.. Erstausgabe der Erstveröffentlichung / W-G-II, 1. Die Verwirrungen des Zöglings Törleß ist der erste Roman von Robert Musil. Die Erstausgabe erschien 1906 im Wiener Verlag. - Mit Hilfe der psychologischen Darstellung der Pubertät von vier Schülern spiegelt der Roman modellhaft autoritäre Gesellschaftsstrukturen wider, indem er einen Zusammenhang zwischen psychischer Disposition und totalitärer Institution herstellt. Die Handlung spielt vor dem Hintergrund der Ichfindung des jungen Törleß im Spannungsfeld von Rationalität und Emotionalität einerseits sowie Intellektualismus und mystischer Welterfahrung andererseits. Musil beschreibt Vorgänge an einem Provinzinternat der österreichisch-ungarischen k. und k. Monarchie. Törleß und seine zwei Mitschüler Reiting und Beineberg ertappen den jüngeren Mitschüler Basini beim Stehlen, halten dies aber geheim, um ihn bestrafen und quälen zu können. Während Beineberg und Reiting Basini hauptsächlich physisch und sexuell misshandeln und foltern, versucht Törleß auf psychischer Ebene von Basini zu lernen. Obwohl auch er Basini zu einem erotischen Lust- und Versuchsobjekt degradiert und, zumindest verbal, wie einen Sklaven behandelt, widert ihn der plumpere erpresserische Sadismus seiner Mitstreiter Reiting und Beineberg zunehmend an. Trotzdem übt die Demütigung Basinis einen gewissen Reiz auf ihn aus. Er ist jedoch (noch) nicht fähig, diesen als Faszination der Macht zu entlarven, in Worte zu fassen und hinter das Geheimnis der "Seele" des Menschen zu kommen, als deren Schlüssel ihm Basinis Verhalten erscheint.

      Santa Margherita Ligure, 22. IV. 1906.. 3¾ SS. 8vo.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten bezüglich eines von ihm verfassten Artikel: "Nun möchte ich Ihr Interesse auf einen umfangreichen Artikel wenden, den ich in der 'Musik' über 'Deutsche und französische Orgelbaukunst und Orgelkunst' veröffentlicht habe. Ich bin in beiden Ländern heimisch und möchte, dass sie beide in der Kunst voneinander lernen. Unser deutscher Orgelbau macht eine Krise durch. Wir bauen viel zu billig, doppelt so billig als die andern, dank der elenden Preisdrückerei einiger großer Orgelfabriken die die andern Orgelbaumeiser ruinieren. Unsere Revisoren haben gegen diese Preisdrückerei nicht reagiert sondern meinten es wäre nicht übel wenn man die Orgeln möglichst billig bekäme. Was aber die Kunst davon hat, sieht man an den Orgeln der letzten Jahre, and die man streng künstlerische Maßstäbe kaum legen darf [...]".

        Don Juan. (2 vols)

[4], 252; [4], 260 pp. Title-page printed in red and black. 8vo. in 4's, 230 x 160 mm, bound in recent red three-quarter morocco over red cloth, spines lettered in gilt. London: Arthur L. Humphreys, 1906. |~||~||~||~| An elegant and very readable edition of Byron's unfinished epic satire, here beautifully printed on thick paper, and handsomely bound. Don Juan is a handsome, charming young man, who delights in succumbing to the beautiful women he encounters, but his character is little more than the connecting thread in a long social comedy - a satirical, poetical novel. Although there is no statement of limitation, the edition size must have been very small. Wise, Byron, pp. 63-64.

        Superb condition exhibitable Samuel Clemens letter written while daily dictating his autobiography to his stenographer

      Black-bordered Typed Letter Signed ?Sincerely Yours / S.L. Clemens,? 1 page, 4.5? x 6.75?. ?Dear Sir:? and date ?Apr. 7. 1906.? also in his hand. New York, April 7, 1906. On his ?21 Fifth Avenue? stationery. Minor flaw in upper right corner from mounting remnant on verso of blank integral leaf. Fine condition. In full, ?I thank you very much for the compliment of your invitation, but I am obliged to decline it, as I have made all the engagements for this year that I can keep.? According to the Mark Twain Project at the University of California Berkley, ?Between 1870 and 1905, Samuel L. Clemens tried repeatedly, and at long intervals, to write (or dictate) his autobiography, always shelving the manuscript before he had made much progress ... In January 1906, he began almost daily dictations to a stenographer ... "[Clemens] soon decided that these Autobiographical Dictations would form the bulk of what he would call the Autobiography of Mark Twain. Within a few months he reviewed his accumulation of false starts and decided which to incorporate into the newer dictation series and which to leave unpublished. By the time he had created more than 250 of these almost daily dictations (and written a final chapter in December 1909, about the recent death of his daughter Jean), he had compiled more than half a million words. He declared the work done, but insisted that it should not be published in its entirety until a hundred years after his death, which occurred less than four months later, on April 21, 1910.? The first volume of a three-volume edition of ?The Autobiography of Mark Twain? was published in November 2010, the 100th anniversary year of Twain?s death, edited by the Mark Twain Project.
