      The Rentala House, Madras 1906 - Dimensions: 23cm x 15cm approx. A very rare First Edition copy of "Othello Unveiled" by the Indian Shakespearean scholar, Rentala Venkata Subbarau. Published in 1906 by Rentala House, Mylapore, Madras, the book accompanies "Hamlet Unveiled", published later. Subbarau also wrote "Kamala¿s Letters to Her Husband". An extremely rare book in its own right, with modern re-prints being almost the only versions available on websites such as Abebooks. The copy we are offering has a superb provenance. The volume was gifted by the author to pre-eminent Shakespearean scholar, A. C. Bradley and is inscribed to the front free endpaper "To A. C. Bradley, Esq, LLD, Litt. D, with the compliments of the author. 14th March, 1906." Andrew Cecil Bradley (1851-1935) was Professor of Poetry at Oxford University for five years during which he published his two most important works "Shakespearean Tragedy" (in 1904) and "Oxford Lectures on Poetry" (in 1909). The book contains quite a lot of pencil annotations that could well have been made by Bradley, though we cannot be certain. This copy also contains another (presumably later) inscription just above that to Bradley that reads "Marjory W. Baker, Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford". Just a bookplate to the front paste-down. A fair bit of wear/rubbing/fading/marking to the cloth covers. Spine very slightly skewed which has caused the binding to be slightly stretched to page gutters. Internal pages good (some uncut) with just slight yellowing. Binding tight. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Dog Book. Ten Parts in One Volume.

      New York, Doubleday, Page & Company 1905, 1906, (Published Feb 1905 through July 1906).First Edition. - Deep red cloth hardcover 7 1/2" x 10 1/2", Good/No Dust Jacket, 746 pages, complete ten parts of the Dog Book as originally published in 1905 through 1906, bound into one 3 3/4" thick volume. The gray paper cover for the first part is also bound into the back of the book as an example, and all the interior parts of the book look clean except for minor margin water stain here and there, few finger marks, and a margin tear at first illustration list. Book is tight, hinges are intact and tight. This gray paper cover states that this is complete in ten parts with three hundred (black and white) photographic illustrations. These are beautifully done on glossy, and still bright, either full page photos or combining 2 or 3 on one page. The red hardcover looks to be a library type binding, sturdy cloth with only gilt title and author on spine, plus two printed numbers on the bottom spine, but this was not a library book as such, there are no library markings. The front cover and spine are heavily spotted and edgeworn, the back is very faded at the top with some sort of paper remnants on the bottom third. Edge rubbing all around but not worn through. Probably should have had this rebound, but I admired the binding job which has lasted almost a hundred years. Only marks I saw were a pencilled word and a number on the gray bound-in paper cover, no names, etc. Page edges are untrimmed and darkened. A great reference on dogs, and also very interesting to read in short sessions. Good/None. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In full, ?For meritorious achievement while participating in antisubmarine patrol missions during World War II. The accomplishment of these missions in light commercial type aircraft despite the hazards of unfavorable weather conditions reflects the highest credit upon this valiant member of the Civil Air Patrol. The high degree of competence and exceptional courage he displayed in the voluntary performance of a hazardous and difficult task contributed in large measure to the security of coastal shipping and military supply lines. His patriotic efforts aided materially in the accomplishment of a vital mission of the Army Air Force in the prosecution of the war.?

Created by cartoonist Zack Mosley (1906-1993) in 1933, the comic strip ?Smilin? Jack? ran in more than 300 newspapers for 40 years. It was the longest running aviation comic strip. Mosley, who also designed posters, insignias and program covers for flying events, started taking flying lessons in 1932 and became a licensed pilot in 1936. He owned nine airplanes, logging over 3000 hours. Mosley was one of the founders of the Civil Air Patrol. In 1976, he was inducted into the Civil Air Patrol Auxiliary-USAF Hall of Honor."

      NP, ca.1906, 1906, Paperback, Book Condition: Very Good, First EditionAll photographs are in a very good condition, slightly edge-nicked and dulled as with age. A selection of the portraits are mounted on stiff card. Overall, this unique collection remains particularly well-preserved. Further scans, images etc. and additional bibliographical material available on request. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 0 pages; A remarkable collection of over 30 original photographs relating to Vladimir Chertkov and Tuckton House in England, the home of Free Age Press, which published works of Tolstoy from his original manuscripts. The photographs include portraits of Chertkov, his family and other members of the 'Tolstoy Commune'. Also included are photos of the house and other buildings, with some shots of a building on fire. Some photos are labelled and dated on the reverse, 1905-1912. Biographical note: Vladimir Chertkov, Leo Tolstoy?s secretary and friend, travelled to England in 1897, after his exile by the Russian government. He settled at Tuckton House, where Tolstoy had enjoyed a summer holiday in 1894. Tchertkov brought with him thirty or so other emigres, mainly middle-class artisans and professionals, who were resolved to publish the works of their mentor, Tolstoy. Chertkov put his money, energy and leadership skills into the remarkable Free Age Press, run by A. C. Fifield. Over the next few years, this small press produced 424 million pages of Tolstoy?s writing. Its propagating work was then carried on by the publisher C. W. Daniel, also a fan of Tolstoy, and who acquired the rights of the Free Age Press around 1906.

        HUEFFER (Ford Madox)

      The Pinafore Library: Christina’s fairy Book. By Ford Madox Hueffer. London: Alston Rivers, Ltd., N.D. [1906]. Post 16mo in half-sheets; half-title not called for; hand-coloured presentation leaf (unused) with series advertisements on verso precedes illustrated title-page printed in red and black; 3pp. integral advertisements at end; pp.[77]+[iii]; quarter blue rough buckram, cut flush, ledger-style, glazed printed paper boards, the front board printed pictorially in green, brown, drab, and black, the back board printed pictorially in blue, grey, pale brown, and green; end-papers printed pictorially in blue, the front and back end-papers bearing different designs, the back end-papers hand-coloured (v. note); rounded die-cut edges. Paper covering of boards chipped a little at corners, and covers generally a trifle rubbed; two or three scattered fox-spots internally, and slight cracking or scuffing of end-papers at hinges; a very good copy, nonetheless of a rare book that is almost unknown in commerce, as here, in its original binding. Issued as the first volume of ‘The Pinafore Library’, the advertisement leaf recording the other volumes as ‘The Travelling Companions’ by Lady Margaret Sackville; ‘Highways and Byways in Fairyland’ by Arthur Ransome; ‘The Fairy Doll’ by Netta Syrett; and ‘Who’s Who in Fairyland’ by Anne Pyne. Arguably Ford’s scarcest book, of which the bibliographer had never seen a copy, and no copy has been recorded at auction for well over the past thirty years. COPAC records copies only at the British Library, Oxford, Cambridge, and (possibly) the National Library of Scotland; whilst OCLC shows none in America, although Princeton has a copy added after the Naumburg collection check-list was published in the Princeton University Library Chronicle. The hand-colouring of the presentation leaf and back end-papers here has been very carefully and artistically done, but is presumably the work of a child. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

      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).
