        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]

        British Flowers

      England, 1906-1913. Maroon cloth. Very Good. Oblong 8vo (17.5 x 21.3 cm). Maroon cloth binding with gilt title on spine, vertical parallel line tooling on boards, minor wear to ends of spine and corners. Collation: [12-tipped in folded typed sheets], [c.250] pp., illustrating 488 pen and ink drawings with watercolor washes of wild flowers around countryside villages and towns in England and Scotland. The plates are very clean with only an occasional spot. Leaves, pedicles and flowers plants are illustrated with Latin and common names and location and date drawn. There is a note for one plant that it was copied in 1912 although the date beneath the plant is dated 1906. This rare album is beautifully illustrated from field sketches that were copied and colored the same day. This unusual and rare collection of British wildflowers is separated into Dicotyledons and Monocotyledons on the preliminary folded typed sheets. On these sheets the listing of plants follows a somewhat taxonomic scheme with family heading followed by individual plants in three columns. First column has number of drawing in album in front of common name; second column Latin genus and species; and third column- location found. Most of the plants in the album are dicots on ten (10) typed sheets and monocots on the last two (2) sheets. On second typed sheet of plants there are two ink corrections for the names of genera for Caryophyllaceae. N.M. Oddy is not listed in standard biographical database for United Kingdom, but certainly is an accomplished artist and botanist who provide common and Latin names for plants he/she observed and drew from nature. There are no duplicates in this album which indicates that the author had a good knowledge of plant identification through personal experience or professional use of published flora.

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.

It has since been translated into over 89 languages and adapted into multiple films.

        Die Verwirrungen des Zöglings Törleß.

      Wiener Verlag,, Wien und Leipzig, 1906 - 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 [...]".

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.

He gained his diploma as mechanical engineer in Budapest. As junior engineer he worked in France designing and developing Nikola Tesla's induction motor, thus he understood it could be also used for railway traction. He went back to Hungary and worked for the Ganz Works together with Ottó Bláthy, Károly Zipernowsky and Miksa Déri the inventors of the closed-core (Z.B.D.) transformer. Kandó designed the system of the world's first mainline electrified railway, using three-phase power, at the Valtellina line (Italy) in 1902. Not in WorldCat. [Attributes: First Edition]

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).
