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 Wagner'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 opera'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 Glinka's A Life for the Tsar; the collision of national forces in Rimsky's opera was modelled on Act 3 of Glinka'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..."

        White Fang

      New York: The Macmillan Company 1906 - Illustrated by Charles Livingston Bull. First edition, issue with tipped in title page on wove paper as usual. Publisher's vertically ribbed gray-green decorative cloth designed and signed by "CX", with gilt lettering to the spine, wolf illustration and lettering stamped in black and white to the front board. Near fine, with a touch of rubbing to spine ends and corners, bright front board without the usual rubbing, former owner's 1906 inscription to the front flyleaf, bright and fresh interior. Overall, a very fresh and attractive copy. BAL 11896. Originally published serially in Outing magazine from May-October 1906, White Fang is a companion novel to its predecessor, The Call of the Wild. The novel is written from the point of view of the titular main character, a wolf-dog named White Fang, as he transitions into domestication. The novel is set in the Yukon Territory in Canada during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s. White Fang is the thematic opposite of its companion text; while The Call of the Wild concerns a dog's natural wild instincts, White Fang is about an undomesticated creature's ability to be tamed. London's narrative from White Fang's point of view provides a unique insight into the violence of the animal kingdom that often mirrors human violence. The text is complemented by Charles Livingston Bull's illustrations; both Bull and London shared an affinity for animals that adds a tender quality to their work and collaboration. Charles Livingston Bull (1874-1932) was an artist, illustrator, and binding designer who was best known for his images depicting wild animals. While attending the Rochester Institute of Technology, Bull completed a taxidermy internship, fostering an interest that lead to his appointment as the Chief Taxidermist at the National Museum in Washington, D.C. While working in D.C., Bull spent much of his free time sketching the animals at The National Zoo. He eventually decided to pursue a career in illustration in New York City, where he continued to sketch at The Bronx Zoo. Over the course of his career, Bull illustrated over 135 books, many of which were nature books or otherwise featured animal scenes. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Typed Document Signed by American Novelist HENRY ROTH, A Questionnaire about his Writing

      - ROTH, HENRY. (1906-1995). American author of the novels Call it Sleep, Mercy of a Rude Stream and An American Type. Typed DS. ("Henry Roth"). 2pp. 4to. N.p., N.d. A typed questionnaire about his writing, which begins with the following premise: "My definition of the word 'symbolism' as used in this questionnaire can be understood from the following example: In the Scarlet Letter, there are four main characters. Some people say that Hawthorne meant those four to be symbolic of nature, science, religion, and other symbols in disguise and conflict. The same people compare the actions of the four to what has happened, is happening and will happen to science, religion, nature, etc." "1. Do you consciously, intentionally plan and place symbolism in your writing? If both yes and no, according to instance, please give an example of each. If yes, please state your method for doing so. No I don't believe so. Do you feel you sub-consciously place symbolism in your writing? Here the answer would be yes 2. Do readers ever infer that there is symbolism in your writing where you had not intended it to be? If so, what is your reaction and feeling to this type of inference? (Annoyance? Amusement? Indifference?) Usually one of amusement. Sometimes admiration that they perceive what I hadn't, or even possibly had forgotten. 3. Do you feel that the great writers of literature classics consciously, intentionally planned and placed symbolism in their writing? If both yes and no, according to instance, please give an example of each. On the whole I don¿t believe so. Occasionally one does appear who consciously introduced his symbols. Dante is one who seemed to think simultaneously in symbol and event. Perhaps Blake in his longer 'cloudy' works. Joyce is another. Do you feel that they placed it there sub-consciously? In general yes. True of the Greeks, Elizabethans, Cervantes. They seemed more interested in creating a type of what existed rather than symbols of abstract ideas, forces, beliefs. 4. Do you have anything to remark concerning the subject under study, or anything you believe to be pertinent to such as study? The impression I get is that any - certainly modern - writer recognizes when his own work, narrative or dramatic, becomes evocative of a symbol; serious writing does have that effect on the writer, even though his attention may be centered elsewhere: in the narrative, in the situation, the character, the language. Speaking for myself, the symbol when it does make itself manifest is, or was, secondary to my main attempt: the construction of a unified, autonomous piece of writing. Others may proceed the other way, from idea to symbol; perhaps Malamud does. My own feeling at the time I wrote C[all] I[t] S[leep] was that the symbol was well-surrendered or abandoned for the greater verity or the more striking insight. Sincerely, Henry Roth" Roth's 1934 novel, Call It Sleep, which chronicles the immigrant experience in the United States, is considered a masterpiece of American-Jewish literature. Although it became widely acclaimed, Roth did not produce another work of fiction for 60 years and fell into semi-obscurity. Beginning in 1994, his ambitious four-volume Mercy of a Rude Stream was published, followed by An American Type, his final novel which was published posthumously. Roth was immortalized in Philip Roth's Zuckerman novels in which the character E.I. Lonoff is a composite of Henry Roth and Pulitzer Prize-winning American-Jewish author Bernard Malamud (1914-1986), mentioned in our questionnaire. Roth also mentions James Joyce (1882-1941), the Irish author of Ulysses, Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547-1616), best known for his novel Don Quixote, Italian author Dante Alighieri (c.1265-1321) ("The Divine Comedy"), and English poet and artist William Blake (1757-1827).

        [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.

        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 - 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.

        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.

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