        CORRISPONDENZA AUTOGRAFA FIRMATA DIRETTA ALL'AMICO GIOVANNI MASCIA. COMPRESA TRA IL 27 NOVEMBRE ED IL 13 DICEMBRE 1906.

      Autografo. CARUSO Enrico. 1873-1921. L?insuperato tenore, i suoi trionfi hanno segnato un?epoca. Corrispondenza autografa firmata diretta all?amico Giovanni Mascia e compresa tra il 27 Novembre ed il 13 Dicembre 1906. Quattro lettere in 8vo (cm.23x15 ciascuna) per complessive dieci facciate su carta intestata Hotel Savoy New York, una con busta e bolli passati per la posta. 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 pagò la cauzione. Al sommario e farraginoso processo ??la Polizia la quale si è costituita parte civile contro di me in mancanza della donna accusatrice. Adesso tutto è andato bene e fra otto giorni sarò certamente assolto dalla condanna di 50 franchi avuta?? scrive nella lettera del 27 Novembre. Il giorno successivo alla prima della Boheme Caruso si presentò 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 perchè 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 è 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 darò il titolo che ti spetta Presidente Fondatore??. Sbollita la rabbia e l?ansia della disavventura allo zoo più 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 ricordò per sempre questo incidente. 1 immagine allegata.

Mansfield Park Two Volumes Third Edition 1902. Emma Two Volumes Fourth Edition 1903. Northanger Abbey Second Edition 1900. Persuasion Second Edition 1900. Books - [PLEASE SEE SCANS] in Good green boards with attractive blue decorated illustration design to the front boards of a young woman in Regency dress carrying a basket of flowers framed with floral decoration, same floral decoration to spine with gilt lettering to front boards and spines - slight bumping and slight rubbing to the extreme corners and extreme ends of the spine, some fading to the front board of Volume One of Mansfield Park and some other marking/ browning to the other boards. Contents: In Sense & Sensibility, there are only protective tissues to the frontispieces, as published or possibly subsequently removed by a knowledgeable previous owner, recognising the damage that these chemically compromised tissue guards represent to the illustrations they were designed to protect. Tissue guards were introduced to protect against 'offset' from illustrations to the text pages facing and it was always intended that they should be removed when the illustrations were stable, usually within a year. The habit of retaining them has proved disastrous to many otherwise fine books as the tissue is chemically reactive over time and reacts with the paper of the book causing browning and spotting most noticeably here in the frontispieces to Volume I of Sense and Sensibility and both volumes of Emma. SEE SCAN. [We would strongly recommend these tissues be removed before they can cause more harm but for the sake of completeness leave that up to the new owner]. Some staining to the illustration on page 183 in Volume Two of Mansfield Park and more slightly to frontispiece of Mansfield Park Vol. II . Previous owner's inscription to the half title page of Northanger Abbey. All top edges gilt although a bit dusty now. Original ribbon markers are a bit thin and frayed and are missing in Emma Volume One and both volumes of Mansfield Park otherwise the contents are clean and tightly bound.

        A CRYSTAL AGE

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1906.. Elaborately decorated pictorial cloth, t.e.g. Slight foxing early and late, cloth a bit rubbed, but otherwise a very good copy. Second edition, significantly revised, with a new preface, and bearing Hudson's name for the first time. The first edition appeared anonymously in 1887. An important presentation copy, inscribed by the author in the month of publication: "John Galsworthy from W.H. Oct. 3. 1906." Hudson "never became a popular author and never had a best seller until John Galsworthy introduced him to the American public in Alfred A. Knopf's edition of GREEN MANSIONS in 1916" - Payne. "One of the arts-and-crafts, anti- mechanistic utopias of the late Victorian age; the primary analogy is to a beehive, with egalitarianism that amounts to oppression, except for a tiny elite who are, in turn, constrained in other ways...I find it beautifully written, but one of the most horrible ideal cultures ever imagined" - Bleiler. PAYNE A2b. BLEILER, SCIENCE FICTION THE EARLY YEARS, pp.376-7.

        Imre: A Memorandum

      Naples: The English Book-Press: R. Rispoli (1906). sm. 8vo. [6], 205, [3]. original grey wrappers printed in red, [vi], 205, [3] pp - Naples: The English Book-Press: R. Rispoli (1906). sm. 8vo. [6], 205, [3]. original grey wrappers printed in red, [vi], 205, [3] pp. 1st Edition. Soft cover. First edition of the first novel by an American with both an explicit gay theme and a sympathetic attitude toward its gay characters. Styled a "little psychological romance" by the author, the novel recounts the growing love between a middle-aged British aristocrat and a Hungarian military officer. According to the colophon, Imre was "Privately printed in a limited edition," and, although the limitation is unstated, scholars have long debated the publishing history of this book, as well as that of the author';s other great work on homosexuality, The Intersexes. Although it appears that Imre was ostensibly issued in an edition of 500 copies, the book is far rarer than The Intersexes, which was limited to only 100 numbered copies. Scholars agree that the prime reason for the scarcity of Imre is because many copies were destroyed in the great Messina earthquake of 1908. Edward I. Stevenson was born in New Jersey in 1968 and, although he passed the state bar examination, he began writing books instead. Writing under his own name, his literary output ranged from several novels for boys with faintly Uranian tones to various collections of short stories and music criticism. But his greatest legacies, by far, were Imre and The Intersexes, not just rarities of early 20th-century American literature, but also groundbreaking books with enduring influence. Each is a founding document of modern lesbian and gay studies, and each seems to have required its author';s expatriation and his assumption of a closelyguarded pseudonym, in order to be published. The present example is unique and quite significant in that it includes a previously unknown page tipped into the text, which identifies where the book could be purchased. The publishing history of the book has always been extremely cloudy, no doubt because of Stevenson';s frequent obfuscations about the true identity of the Very good in original printed wrappers with light cover wear and light wear to spine. The cover and title page bear the revised 1908 date of publication sticker, also present in other copies of the book. Only three institutions currently hold copies (Harvard, Cornell, British Library). Quite rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Churchill also received plaudits from a number of well-known political biographers, J. A. Spender, biographer of Campbell-Bannerman and Asquith, called it a "brilliant book", and W. F. Monypenny, author of the Life of Disraeli, remarked that "alike in style and architecture and for its spirit, grasp and insight the book seems to me truly admirable".

We believe, however, that even a veteran of the woods would find valuable pointers in Mr. Hanks's book, while to the fortunate one who has still to learn the tricks of camp-life it should prove a guide, counselor and friend."

        LADY BALTIMORE Inscribed to John Philip Sousa

      MacMillan & Company, New York 1906 - Decorated cloth with thirteen full-page illustrations by Vernon Howe Bailey and Lester Ralph. Author of THE VIRGINIAN, the classic novel of the West that helped to create the idealized perception of the cowboy's life and that influenced countless authors of westerns, Wister graduated from Harvard with highest honors in music. He advanced his studies in music in Paris where he was encouraged by Franz Liszt. While Wister never pursued a career in music, his studies in that field certainly brought him into contact with prominent musicians and composers. This book reflects Wister's interest and wide range of contacts as he has INSCRIBED and SIGNED it to John Philip Sousa in May 1907 on the verso of the frontispiece. Slight blurring to the date but a clear, fine inscription from a truly American writer to a like composer. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Publisher's full gilt-stamped vellum with original yellow ribbon ties. Small marginal wormhole affecting just the front free endpaper and the limitation leaf. An excellent copy, the binding fresh and clean. Housed in a plain chemised box.In 1906 Hachette et Cie, Paris, published two Edition DeLuxe versions of this title. There were 200 unsigned copies on 'Papier Whatman' and in addition another 20 copies that were signed by Rackham and printed on 'Papier du Japon.'Around the middle of 1904. Ernest Brown & Phillips commissioned 50 color illustrations to Rip Van Winkle, and purchased the originals and all rights for 300 guineas. The publishing rights were then resold in a complicated deal to Heinemann, before the illustrations were exhibited at Brown and Phillips' Leicester Galleries. Most of the Rip drawings were sold at the exhibition, and by October they had all found purchasers."Brown and Phillips' investment, made secure by the keenness of Rackham's purchasers, was not let down by the reviews his work received.". When, in September 1905, Rip Van Winkle was published, comparisons between Rackham and German artists [i.e. Dürer and Joseph Sattler] continued to be voiced, The Times remarking on 'the marvel of his Düreresque detail.'". The 51 illustrations, for a story of not more than five thousand words, enables the story to be told twice, once through Irving's words, and once again, image by image, through Rackham's pictures. In his illustrations, Rackham pays homage not only to Dürer, Cruikshank and Dutch seventeenth-century painting, but to contemporary artists, too." (Hamilton).". But the first work that greatly advanced his fame in the years immediately following his marriage was his edition of Rip Van Winkle This lovely book decisively established Rackham as the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period. The deluxe edition of the book was fully subscribed before the [Leicester Galleries] exhibition closed" (Hudson).Riall, p. 70. Latimore and Haskell, p. 26. [Attributes: First Edition]
