        Scenes and Characters of the English XVIIIth Century, all, with the exception of one or two Portraits, Original

      , 1906 1906. Quarter Leather. Very Good Plus. A complete manuscript book containing 34 pen and sepia wash pictures, each captioned on the facing leaf by the hand of Colwyn Edward Vulliamy (1886 - 1971). Vulliamy was a Welsh biographer and historian. Educated privately, he studied art under Stanhope Forbes. In World War One he served in France, Macedonia and Turkey. Post-war, in addition to biography, he produced several mysteries and dabbled in humor writing. This album beautifully combines his affinity for history and humor, and one could only wish he had devoted more of his later energies to such caricature. The subject matter is of some historic remove from Vulliamy, but surely the album reflects the surge of interest in the eighteenth century that occurred at the turn of the twentieth century. Here one will find both a wistful and jaundiced look back -- Vulliamy doesn't look away from the seedy and ugly aspects of Georgian England. His style and wash media are true to the period, and but for the paper stock and the binding, one could be easily deceived into thinking the artwork was in fact contemporary with the period depicted. The front endpaper is signed and dated by the author, and he again initials and dates the closing illustrated leaf. Quarter leather over pebbled cloth binding, measuring 9.5 by 13.5 cm, or 5.25 by 3.75 inches. Some spotting on the black cloth. Otherwise, quite fresh and clean.

        THE WRITINGS OF HENRY DAVID THOREAU with a leaf of manuscript mentioning Walden Pond

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin and Company, 1906. Boston: Houghton Mifflin and Company, 1906. Manuscript Edition. Hardcover. Partial separation along fold on the manuscript page. One volume slightly chipped along spine. Near Fine. Large octavo (6" x 8-3/4"), 20 volumes bound by Stikeman and Co. in 3/4 brown morocco leather with gilt-lettered and decorated spines. Illustrated with 3 portraits and 101 gravures after photographs by Herbert Gleason. BAL 20145: copy #396 of 600 numbered sets SIGNED by the publisher with an inlaid leaf of Thoreau's original holograph manuscript written on both sides of the sheet regarding the Fall coloring of trees. The manuscript in this copy is from Thoreau's important essay "Autumnal Tints," perhaps the best essay written by anyone on the subject of the color of the changing fall leaves. In part: "Notwithstanding that the red maple is the most intense scarlet of any of our trees, the sugar maple has been the most celebrated, and Michaux, in his Sylva, does not speak of the autumnal color of the former.... Walden's hilly shore too is now most beautifully painted chiefly, with small trees of this species which extend their red banners over the water, and here and there on one side slender young black birches rise a clear pale yellow quite distinct amid the evergreens and other trees on the steep shore." Much more. Thoreau manuscript material is increasingly scarce and more expensive to obtain, nearly always being found as it is here, bound into the Manuscript Edition. This edition marks the first printing of Thoreau's entire Journal.

        Denkschrift, seine Kündigung in der Grossherzoglichen Kunstgewerbeschule zu Weimar betreffend. Weimar, Cranach Presse 1915. 4to. 11 S. Hellbrauner Maroquinbd. mit Deckeltitel.

      . . Äußerst seltenes Dokument zur Geschichte der von Henry van de Velde 1906 gegründeten Weimarer Kunstgewerbeschule, bzw. zur Vorgeschichte des Bauhauses. Aus dem Vorwort: "Die Schwierigkeiten, mit denen ich schon seit Jahren zu kämpfen gehabt hatte, nahmen vom Jahre 1911 einen unerträglichen Charakter an. Im Frühjahr 1914 erfuhr ich, daß der Direktor der Weimarer Kunstschule, Prof. Mackensen, hinter meinem Rücken in offiziellem Auftrage einen Nachfolger für mich zu finden suchte, ohne das ich in irgend einer Weise von einem beabsichtigten Wechsel in der Leitung der Kunstgewerbeschule wäre unterrichted worden. Auf Grund meines Einspruches erhielt ich durch das Ministerium den Auftrag zu einer Denkschrift, die ich Ihnen nachfolgend unterbreite". Van de Velde skizziert den Aufbau und die Erfolge der Schule sowie die Auseinandersetzungen in den Vorkriegsjahren, welche in seiner 1915 erfolgten Kündigung und der fast vollständigen Schließung der Schule gipfelten. Sein Vorschlag, Gropius als Nachfolger zu berufen, gab den Auftakt zu langwierigen Verhandlungen, aus denen später das Bauhaus hervorgegangen ist. Von extremer Seltenheit.

        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.

        The Sunken Bell [Signed/Unterzeichnet] [Die versunkene Glocke] A Fairy Play in Five Acts

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1906. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first American edition, later printing (minor rubbing to the spine ends and board corners, tiny bit of fraying to the spine tail, board corners turned a touch inward, slight marking to the boards -- no dust jacket), SIGNED BY GERHART HAUPTMANN on the half-title; a Play first issued in Germany (1897) and here translated to English by Charles Henry Meltzer and complete with 11 photographic illustrations of the actors and scenes. German dramatist and novelist Gerhart Johann Robert Hauptmann won the 1912 Nobel Prize in Literature 1912 "primarily in recognition of his fruitful, varied and outstanding production in the realm of dramatic art". While in most of his Plays Hauptmann dealt with conditions of the low-class life, in "The Sunken Bell" ("Die versunkene Glocke"), his most popular Play in his native Germany and one which Hauptmann called a "Märchendramen", Hauptmann offers a Play which the misery of life and the bliss of heaven emerge with striking contrast. (An important and noted work in his winning the Award, "The Sunken Bell" was so popular in Germany that, as of the time of the Award, it had been through at least 60 printings). In his speech presenting the Award to Hauptmann, Hans Hildebrand, then the Acting Secretary of the Swedish Academy, stated: "Hauptmann's particular virtue is his penetrating and critical insight into the human soul. It is this gift that enabled him in his plays and in his novels to create truly living individuals rather than types representing some particular outlook or opinion. All the characters we meet, even the minor ones, have a full life." Then, after speaking of Hauptmann's controversial "Der Narr in Christo Emanuel Quint" ["The Fool in Christ: Emanuel Quint"], Hildebrand noted that Hauptmann's "...manifold activities as a writer have given us other marvellous works. I shall mention only two here, Hanneles Himmefahrt and Die versunkene Glocke." the latter being the very book herein described. While signed copies of Limited Editions of Hauptmann's work are available (in German), signed copies of his trade editions are quite scarce indeed (with copies of this trade edition being quite scarce to the market in any printing), and signed copies of his work in English translation are as scarce as hen's teeth. A Very Good copy SIGNED BY GERHART HAUPTMANN. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
