Shops were reluctant to stock this and ‘Miss Moppet’, the only other book by Potter published in this form, because they were awkward for small hands to handle and easily damaged. Both were eventually reprinted in bookform in 1916. ‘Bad Rabbit’ was written at the prompting of Beatrix Potter's niece, Louie, who told her aunt that 'Peter was much too good a rabbit, and she wanted a story about a really naughty one!' (Linder p.183). (Linder p.426: Quinby 12)

        El Tovar, Grand Canyon, 1906

      1906 - El Tovar, Grand Canyon, 1906 By: Louis Akin 1906 Medium: Chromolithograph Dimensions: 16 1/2 x 35 inches Louis Akin, originally from Oregon studied with William Merritt Chase in New York City and was sent to Arizona by the Santa Fe Railroad in 1903 to paint the Hopi Indians. Akin remained with the Hopi for eighteen months and later, in 1906, published an article sympathetic to their conflicts with the Anglo world, which had intruded into their civilization with the coming of the railroad. The same year he returned to Arizona hoping to establish a colony of artists devoted to the Hopi; he settled in Flagstaff for the last seven years of his life. Akin's early work focuses primarily in Hopi life, but after his return from the West, he began painting glorious landscape- soaring mountains, immense canyons and spectacular rock formations. His most spectacular work is the view of "El Tovar," complete with the glorious Grand Canyon in the background.

Tall 8vo., orig. printed wrappers, (viii), 35, (4)pp.ads. About fine. Ernst Cassirer [1874-1945] German philosopher. Cassirer was a Prof. of Philosophy at the University of Hamburg from 1919 until 1933, when he fled Hitler's Germany and went to Oxford; he later taught at Yale and Columbia. "A leading representative of the Marburg Neo-Kantian school, Cassirer at first devoted himself to a critical-historical study of the problem of knowledge. This work bore fruit in the monumental "Das Erkenntnisproblem in der Philosophie und Wissenschaft der neueren Zeit" (3 vols. 1906-1920) and "Sustanzbegriff und Funktionsbegriff" (1910, tr. Substance and Function, 1923). In his chief work, Philosophie der Symbolischen Formen (3 vols, 1923-29, trans. Philosophy of Symbolic Forms, 1953-57) he applied the principles of Kantian philosophy toward the formation of a critique of culture. His viewe that all cultural achievements (including language, myth, and science) are the results of man's symbolic activity led Cassirer to a new conceptioin of man as the "symbolic animal." Cassirer wrote many other studies on science, myth and various historical subject." They include works on Einsteins' Theory of Relativity, and others. " [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

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.

        The Letters of Horace Walpole

      Edinburgh - John Grant, 1906. Edinburgh - John Grant, 1906 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of the correspondences of Horace Walpole, the fourth Earl of Orford. Horatio Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford (24 September 1717 2 March 1797) was an English art historian, man of letters, antiquarian and Whig politician. He is now largely remembered for Strawberry Hill, the home he built in Twickenham, south-west London where he revived the Gothic style some decades before his Victorian successors, and for his Gothic novel, The Castle of Otranto. Along with the book, his literary reputation rests on his Letters, which are of significant social and political interest. His memoirs of the Georgian social and political scene, though heavily biased, are a useful primary source for historians. Walpole's numerous letters are similarly useful as a historical resource. In one, dating from 28 January 1754, he coined the word serendipity which he said was derived from a silly fairy tale he had read, The Three Princes of Serendip. The oft-quoted epigram, This world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those that feel, is from a letter of Walpole's to Anne, Countess of Ossory, on 16 August 1776. The original, fuller version appeared in a letter to Sir Horace Mann on 31 December 1769: I have often said, and oftener think, that this world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those that feel a solution of why Democritus laughed and Heraclitus wept. Illustrated throughout with sixty-four engraved plates (collated complete). Complete in nine volumes. Condition: In blue cloth bindings. Externally sound, though with some bumping and marks. Some considerable water damage to the front board of volume IX and dampstaining to volume VIII. Internally, firmly bound. Ink signatures to Pages are bright, though with somefoxing throughout. Mould to pages of volume IX. Overall: GOOD ONLY due to dampstaining of volume IX..
