        BUFFALO BILLS AFVENTYR I VILDA VASTERN

      Stockholm: Bokforlaget Svithiods Forlag, [1906-1907].. Thirty-five issues in twenty parts (volume 1) plus thirty- seven issues in twenty-one parts (volume 2). Variously paginated. Illustrations. Original pictorial wrappers, some colored but most duotone. Some moderate edge wear to the wrappers, but on the whole in near fine condition. Laid into two pictorial and gilt portfolios (moderately worn). A scarce, apparently complete run, in the original pictorial wrappers, of this Swedish periodical of Buffalo Bill western adventure stories. Begun in 1906, the year of Buffalo Bill's final tour of Europe, the series stretched into seventy-two issues in forty-one parts. The attractive illustrations are by David Ljungdahl and C.O. Bartels, and show Buffalo Bill in a variety of adventures and heroic acts. The rear wrapper of some issues contains an advertisement for the entire Buffalo Bill series, while others promote a similar periodical called "Texas Jack," and yet others a series that translates to "With Swedish Adventurers in the Dollar County," all of which give valuable information on how these periodicals were marketed in Sweden. Most of the OCLC listings are for individual issues at the National Library of Sweden, though there are also records for an issue at Princeton, and another at Northern Illinois University. Excellent evidence of the popularity throughout Europe of Buffalo Bill and the mythic American West.

        Autograph correspondence signed. Monkey House Trial.

      27 November - 13 Dicember 1906. - 4 autograph letters signed, in italian. Addressed to the friend Giovanni Mascia. 10 pages in 8vo cm. 23 x 15 each (inches 9 x 6), headed Hotel Savoy New York. 1 stamped and addressed envelope. Soggiornava Caruso nel famoso hotel di fronte al Central Park in attesa del debutto al Metropolitan con la Boheme, debutto che poi avvenne il 28 Novembre 1906, e nei momenti di pausa tra le prove era solito passeggiare nel Parco fino al Monkey House. Qui, vicino la gabbia delle scimmie, fu accusato dal tal Mrs. Graham di palpeggiamenti al fondo schiena. Immediatamente arrestato dall'agente Caine, Caruso fu trattenuto nella prigione del 67mo distretto. Da qui fu liberato dall'amico Conried che pago' la cauzione. Al sommario e farraginoso processo ". la Polizia la quale si e' costituita parte civile contro di me in mancanza della donna accusatrice. Adesso tutto e' andato bene e fra otto giorni saro' certamente assolto dalla condanna di 50 franchi avuta ." scrive nella lettera del 27 Novembre. Il giorno successivo alla prima della Boheme Caruso si presento' di spalle al pubblico, ma al Metropolitan vi fu un'ovazione straordinaria al suo apparire. Ne fu contento tanto che il 4 Dicembre in una risposta a Mascia ". il mio debutto fu splendido e felice . anche se . sono un poco nervoso perche' questa . di voce mia ne fa di tutti i colori ". Dopo una settimana di trionfali rappresentazioni Caruso il 13 Dicembre confida le sue preoccupazioni ". la mia voce non e' come dovrebbe essere .". Ma il suo scherzoso carattere napoletano non si lascia abbattere ne' da problemi di salute ne' da problemi giudiziari : a Mascia risentito per un ruolo poco gratificante il 29 Dicembre risponde " . da oggi ti daro' il titolo che ti spetta Presidente Fondatore . ". Sbollita la rabbia e l'ansia della disavventura al Monkey House piu' pacatamente comunica ". intanto me lo ànno (sic) messo in corridoio anche in Appello avendo confermato la sentenza dei 10 dollari .". Fu forse la violenta campagna contro l'eccessiva immigrazione italiana la causa di questo sensazionale avvenimento : il poliziotto Caine fu radiato ed il Commissario Mathot allontanato dal distretto. Ma per Enrico Caruso fu un esperienza traumatica, egli ricordo' per sempre questo incidente. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        THE WOODLANDERS (Presentation Copy Inscribed By the Author to His Second Wife, Florence Hardy)

      Osgood, McIlvaine, London - Hardy, Thomas. THE WOODLANDERS. London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1906. Later Edition. This is the PRESENTATION COPY given by the author to his future second wife, Florence Emily Dugdale, during the time they first began their secret courtship, four years before the death of the first Mrs. Hardy. At the time of its presentation, it was the most current version of the novel and it is inscribed: "To/ Miss F. E. Dugdale/With the Author's Kind Regards/Christmas 1908." The copy has been well-read by the second Mrs. Hardy as one might expect and shows some wear but little tear, still in very nice original condition without major flaw. Despite Hardy's formality of inscription, he was already quite drawn to Miss Dugdale by this time and a more intimate presentation copy of this title would be hard to find. Florence Hardy's personal copy of THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE (also a later edition with her bookplate, but NOT inscribed by Thomas Hardy) made $12,095.00 at Sotheby's London in 2001. Spectacular association. Housed in a new quarter-morocco slipcase. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Dermato-Histologischer Atlas in 53 Abbildungen auf 24 Tafeln.

      . Leipzig, J.A.Barth, 1906, Gr.8°, VIII, 48 pp. Tafelerklärungen, 24 farblith. Taf., orig. Halbleinwandband.. Erste Auflage des seltenen Dermato-Histologischen Atlas aus der Hand des bekannten Kaposi-Schülers Max Joseph. - "In dem histologischen Atlas, welche ich zusammen mit Kollegen P.Meißner (Berlin 1899) veröffentlichte, haben wir Typen solcher Hauterkrankungen wiedergegeben, welche auf die photographischen Platte ohne jede Retouche das denkbar objektivste Bild darstellen sollten. Natürlich hat diese Methode ihre Licht- und Schattenseiten. Als Vorteil ist zu betrachten, daß unabhängig von dem Darsteller nur die Platte das zur Anschauung bringt, was absolut genommen allein in dem Präparat zu sehen ist. Als Nachteil muß es erscheinen, daß immer nur eine kleine, wenn auch noch so typische Stelle des Präparates mit dieser Methode wiedergegeben werden kann und feinste Detailmalereien ausgeschlossen sind. Daher war es mein Wunsch, in einem zweiten Atlas mit unserer heutigen Färbetechnik so ausgezeichnet darzustellende Einzelheiten auch in die Vervielfältigung durch farbige Zeichnungen wiederzugeben. Das erwies sich als äußerst schwierig, weil vor allen zur Herstellung der Zeichnungen jemand gehörte, der nicht nur Mediziner, sondern auch Maler war. Unter einer großen Reihe von Schülern, welchen ich hin und wieder diesen Plan entwickelte, und welche einige Ansätze dazu machten, fand sich endlich Herr J.B. van Deventer, Oberstabsarzt der Nierderländisch-Ostinidischen Armee in Batavia, welcher mir für diesen Zweck besonders geeignet erschien. Mit ein3m enormen Fleiße verband der Kollege eine hohe zeichnerische Begabung und ein ungemeines Geschick in der Darstellung selbst der schwierigsten Details .. Mir bleib nur übrig, den Text zu meinen Präparaten anzufertigen..." Vorrede - Max Joseph (1860-19) promovierte 1883 in Königsberg, bildete sich in Wien unter Kaposi aus. Er war später Leiter einer Privatklinik. "Insbesondere in der Zeit vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg bildete seine Praxis einen Anziehungspunkt für Ärzte aus aller Welt, vor allem aus den USA. Scholz (1999) bestätigt, daß in dieser Zeit die außeruniversitäre Dermatologie eine höhere Ausstrahlungskraft hatte als der klinische Bereich der damaligen Charite" (Voswinckel in Fischer III).

        Scorn of Women: In Three Acts

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1906 First edition, first printing. Publisher's white cloth spine over maroon cloth boards, front board stamped in white, spine lettered in black, top edge gilt. About near fine, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, front board lettering rubbed, light spot of soiling to rear board, sturdy binding, ownership stamp to the front pastedown, bright and clean interior. Overall, a tight and attractive copy. Scarce. BAL 11898. Set in Dawson, Northwest Territory, in 1897, Scorn of Women is a theatrical adaptation of a short story of the same name from his 1901 collection The God of His Fathers. Like many of London's writings, Scorn of Women addresses the trials and tribulations of life in the Yukon Territory during the Klondike Gold Rush in the 1890's. Specifically, this tale features Floyd Vanderlipp, an "Eldorado king," who lived the dream of "striking it rich" in the Yukon. While he is spared from the physical and financial burdens that most faced during the Gold Rush, Vanderlipp, whom London describes as "the sort of man who women of the right sort can tie into knots," is plagued in his own right by three beautiful women. The plot, which takes place over the course of thirteen hours, is divided into three parts: Act I "Alaska Commercial Company's Store at Dawson," Act II "Anteroom of Pioneer Hall," and Act III "Freda Moloof's Cabin.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Le Bain de la Mariée Juive [The Bath of the Jewish Bride]

      [Paris 1906 - Hand-coloured lithograph on japon, full margins. A scarce lithograph, depicting a Jewish ritual bath (Mikvah) in a North African country. The Mikvah is a Sephardic tradition in which the bride, her female friends and relatives take a pre-nuptial bath together. Lunois uses this imagined scene to show us a handsome nude just before she is wrapped in a towel. Using his technique of "wash lithography", Lunois gives the moment a rich, impressionistic feel. Alexandre Lunois showed a marked aptitude for lithography at an early age and at the age of 24 was given a monetary prize by the Salon, which he used to travel through Spain, Morocco, Italy and Turkey. The pictorial result of these travels is a rich trove of intriguing scenes and interesting experiments in color. Lunois taught his lithographic technique to Bonnard and Vuillard in the 1890's.
