        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      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)

      1906. BYRON, Lord George Gordon. Don Juan. Two volumes. [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.

Portrait frontispiece, 38 plates and numerous illustrations to the text, large folding coloured map in end-pocket. Spine and back cover sunned, a few marks to front cover, front hinge a little shaken, light foxing to edges of book block. First edition. "A very scarce title due to its private printing, in this, Jessen a Norwegian, recounts four hunting trips in Africa with the McMillans of St. Louis, Missouri. The first expedition along the Blue Nile in 1902 records only a few gazelle hunts. In 1904, a second trip carried the McMillan party along the Upper Baro River of Abyssinia with hunts for hippopotamus, elephant, and lion. In addition, more elephant were bagged near Lake Tata and the River Kaia. There was hunting for a variety of plains game including giraffe and zebra throughout this expedition. The third expedition along the Blue Nile offers adventures in Abyssinia but little in the way of sport. A fourth trip made in Autumn 1905 found the party in British East Africa in the foothills of Donyo Sabuk, C. W. I Bulpett, who accompanied the Mcmillans, bagged rhinoceros, eland, and lion, while Mrs. McMillan collected her own lion" (Czech).

        [Photo Album]: Construction of the "Devils Bar-B-Q" at Devils Lake State Park in Baraboo, Wisconsin

      Oblong quarto album. Rawhide tied flexible boards with hand painted illustration of a Native American in a canoe, and "Snap Shots" and "Wisconsin Dells" embossed, all on the front board. 86 snapshots, mostly sepia-toned, many with printed decorative border. Various sizes, but mostly between 4.5" x 2.75" and 6" x 3.75". Small chip on the margin of one image, some modest fading, overall very good or better. A seemingly complete and unpillaged family photo album. The album is devoted about equally between outdoor family scenes with the other half devoted to construction of the family's "Devils Bar-B-Q" stone building, including some overlap - family members posing in front of the Bar-B-Q shack. The album shows stone construction, wood framing of floors and interior, an interior shot of the finished counter, as well as several featuring the neon sign, and some of what seem like a later addition to the building, as well as what seems to be an adjunct roadside drinks and ice cream stand. Undated, one picture shows a 1906 Ford, but our guess is that this is considerably later, perhaps circa mid-1920s. A wonderful album illustrating America's preoccupation with road food as the population became more mobile. .

        Abstrakte Farbzeichnung *Stadtansicht* ( wohl Gelmeroda ) in Farbkreide auf Papier. Am Unterrand miit Lyonel Feininger bezeichnet.

      . Bildmaß: 31 x 41,8 cm ( Höhe x Breite ), Abstrakte Zeichnung mit Farbkreide auf Papier. Untenstehend mittig mit *Lyonel Feininger* signiert, undatiert. Gezeigt wird wohl eine Stadtansicht aus Thüringen ( möglicherweise Gelmeroda ) wo sich Feininger zwischen 1906 und 1937 öfters aufgehalten hat und zahlreiche Zeichnungen enstanden sind. Auch später hat Feininger Motive aus der Gegend immer wieder aufgegriffen und zeichnerisch umgesetzt. Die Zeichnung von guter, farbfrischer Erhaltung, das Blatt gering fleckig, verso mit Resten alter Montierung und gering stockfleckig. Das Blatt jeweils zu den äußeren Ecken hin etwas angeknickt. Zum linken Außenrand hin außerhalb der Darstellung mit 6 winzigen stecknadelkopfgrossen Löchern. ( Bitte beachten: Eine Expertise zu dieser Zeichnung liegt mir nicht bzw. noch nicht vor. Augenscheinlich aber wohl ein authentisches Blatt des Künstlers. Die Signatur entspricht den bei Artprice für Feininger hinterlegten Signaturen - hier mit vollem Vor- und Zunamen ). Provenienz: Alter Hamburgischer Privatbesitz. ( Bitte ggf. nach Absprache vor Ort besichtigen ) ( Pic erhältlich // webimage available - Weitere Pics auf Anfrage ).
