        Kak ja spassja ot vernago razorenija v igornom vertepe v Monte-Karlo . . . [transliterated from the Cyrillic; translates into English as, How I saved myself from certain ruin in the gambling den of Monte Carlo].

      n. p., [ca. 1906]., Vilnius [but printed in St. Petersburg]: - 8vo, original pictorial drab wrappers, 23 pages. 7 plates (including one printed in red and black, and a double plate showing a view of the casino floor with the house spies marked), illus. A detailed firsthand exposure of (as the subtitle would have it) the supposed "schemes of croupiers and spies in the casinos of Monte Carlo," Astrom’s description of an elaborate conspiracy on the part of the casino to cheat its clientele, in part through an elaborate system of surveillance. Includes an illustration in the text of Astrom’s casino pass, dated 14 11 05, which in part suggests the publication date. A search of the standard catalogues turns up only a copy the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich (catalouged as ca. 1902) and a record in the catalogue at the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin with the note "Kriegsverlust möglich" ("war loss possible") suggesting their copy is unlocated; a 32-page German edition published under the title Wodurch ich gerettet wurde vom sicheren Ruin in der Spielhölle von Monte Carlo (catalogued as ca. 1906) is noted at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin only. Several of the illustrations appear to have been done by the Dresden postcard publisher F. S. Jahn. Attractive red ink private library device stamped on the verso of the title page and at the foot of the final page; small faint ink number stamped at the head of the front wrapper. Wrappers a bit rubbed and browned; faint residue of a small decal on the inside rear wrapper; a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

July 27, 1905. Dear Sir- Your letter and cheque has been forwarded to me here- I am of course very sorry that you do not wish for more than two copies of each of my books in the future- I had a long talk with Emery Walker of the Doves Press yesterday and we went through the M.S. Lady Gregory's book, "Saints and Wonders" and he think it will make a very god book indeed. " etc. One of 200 copies printed upon paper made in Ireland, and published by Elizabeth Corbet Yeats at the Dun Emer Press, in the house of Evelyn Gleeson at Dundrum in the County of Dublin, Ireland. Text printed in black and red. One engraved illustration printed in red. A monumental copy, almost no signs of wear. Rarely seen thus. Interestingly, an old clipping laid in at end dated and annotated in an unknown hand, "Boston Herald, March 9-18," with the caption: "Lady Gregory's Son Killed in Air Duel. The Dun Emer Press (1902-1908) was an Irish private press founded in 1902 by Elizabeth Corbet Yeats (1868-1940) and her brother William Butler Yeats (1865-1939). Part of the Celtic Revival, the press was named after Emer, a legendary figure in Irish mythology. In 1908, after the press had produced eleven titles, the different elements of the Dun Emer studio separated completely and the Yeats sisters left Dundrum and Elizabeth established the Cuala Press at Churchtown, Dublin.

        January 27, 1906 J.M. Barrie Handwritten Letter (ALS)

      Lancaster: Original, 1906. Ephemera. Single Sheet. Very Good. 3 3/4 X 5 1/2. Original January 27, 1906 letter in the hand of James M. Barrie. Not two years after the first production of Peter Pan and in the same year as the release of "Peter Pan in Kensington Garden", this ALS obviously dates to a very important time in Barrie's life. While much of the letter is illegible to me (as with most of Barrie's letters), there are a few very interesting people and places mentioned. First, the year is 1906, the year that "Peter Pan in Kensington Garden" was released. Second, the letter mentions Barries agent, Mr. (Addison) Bright. Bright actually passed away later in this same year. The third interesting tid-bit here is the address of "36 Russell Square." Russell Square was the birthplace of Peter Pan and is the home of both the Duke of York Theatre as well as the Great Ormond Street Hospital, to whom Barrie gave all rights to "Peter Pan" to in 1929. On "Leinster Corner, Lancaster Gate. W" stationery. Horizontal fold. Slight toning.

"De figuris Veneris" è il titolo di un'antologia di scritti a tema erotico sugli antichi Greci e Romani, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1824 dal filosofo e classicista tedesco riedrich Karl Forberg (Meuselwitz, 1770 -  Hildburghausen, 1848) come commentario all'Hermaphroditus di Antonio Beccadelli. Fu successivamente edita come opera a se stante e tradotta in inglese, francese e tedesco. Édouard-Henri Avril, noto con lo pseudonimo di aul Avril (Algeri, 1849 - Le Raincy, 1928), pittore e illustratore francese, è celebre per le sue opere a carattere erotico. Diplomato alla Scuola di belle arti di Parigi, raggiunge la notorietà grazie al corredo iconografico realizzato per la novella Fortunio su incarico di Théophile Gautier, prima di una lunga serie di commissioni da parte degli autori più quotati della letteratura galante del tempo. Tra queste: "Salammbô", di Gustave Flaubert; "Le Roi Caundale", di Gautier; "Fanny Hill", di John Cleland; "Avventure del Cavaliere de Faublas", di Jean Baptiste Louvet de Couvray, gli scritti di Pietro Aretino e le novelle anonime lesbiche del Gamiani. La sua opera di maggior rilievo è costituita dai disegni per il "De Figuris Veneris" di Friedrich Karl Forberg.

        The Thirty Seven Nats, Unique Book of original Burmese Paintings, 37 Nats

      Burma - The Thirty Seven Nats, Unique Book of original Burmese Paintings. This exciting find is a unique Burmese artwork depicting the Thirty Seven Nats. It consists of a concertina style bound document, made from a thick hand-made textured paper and is resplendent with 2 sets of hand drawn illustrations of the Thirty Seven Nats - 74 full colour images in total. The book expands to a length of approximately 7 metres long when fully unfurled. We believe one side depicts the Nats in their Outdoors form and the other as they would be represented Indoors - akin to statues. Nats originate from the pre-Buddhist animist beliefs of Burmese people. They are a group of supernatural beings, or nature spirits, of which there is special group of 37 ‘royal’ Nats, the royal pantheon. Nat worship still occurs in Burmese society alongside Buddhism which is the prevalent religion. It is much more common in rural areas. Sir Richard Carnac Temple published a book entitled "The Thirty-Seven Nats: A Phase of Spirit Worship Prevailaing in Burma" in 1906, itself a translation of an earlier Burmese manuscript. It is possible that these images would have been based on that publication, or the artist may have used the earlier source material. Condition: Overall very good. The book is soundly bound. Outer covers are worn and there is the remains of an old label on the front. Some of the images also have the remains of text labels towards the top of the pages, and sometimes holes in the page where the label has been removed, and there are some old damp stains and worm holes - please view the images which are representative of overall condition. For those familiar with old Burmese books, you will appreciate that such wear is to be expected as the Burmese climate is far from ideal when it comes to book preservation. A truly remarkable and unique find, which will be a great addition to someone's collection. Dimensions: Closed: 41.5cm wide x 17.5cm high x 2cm deep Open: 41.5cm wide x 700cm long. Date: 20th Century - very difficult to date exactly. More photos on request. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1906. First Trade Edition of Arthur Rackham's "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens" In a Fine Inlaid Binding by Richard Smart RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator. BARRIE, J.M. Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (From "The Little White Bird"). With Drawings by Arthur Rackham. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1906. First trade edition. Quarto (9 3/4 x 7 1/4 inches; 248 x 184 mm.). xii, 125, [1] pp. Color frontispiece and forty-nine color plates (collected at the end of the text) mounted on heavy brown paper, with descriptive tissue guards.

Spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled to a floral-leaf design and lettered in gilt in compartments. Elaborate gilt turn-ins. Cockerel liners and end-leaves. Fine. A superb and very attractive binding. J.M. Barrie's novel The Little White Bird (1902) "contains the first sketches for Peter Pan. The narrator is 'a gentle, whimsical, lonely old bachelor', an author by profession, whose ambition is to have a son. He meets a penniless young couple whose own son David becomes a substitute in his affections. He explains to David that 'all children in our part of London were once birds in the Kensington Gardens; and that the reason there are bars on nursery windows and a tall fender by the fire is because very little people sometimes forget that they no longer have wings, and try to fly away through the window or up the chimney.' The central chapters of the book tell the story of one such child, Peter Pan, who 'escaped from being a human when he was seven days old...and flew back to the Kensington Gardens'...The Peter Pan chapters of The Little White Bird were re-issued in 1906 as Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, with colour plates by Arthur Rackham; this was the book which first made Rackham's work famous. It should not be confused with Peter and Wendy (1911), Barrie's novelization of the play Peter Pan" (The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature). Latimore and Haskell, p. 27. Riall, p. 74.

        Tre donne un fiore. Quattro serigrafie di Domenico Cantatore

      Bellissimo libro d'artista, tirato in 140 esemplari numerati. Edizione a cura di Giorgio Lucini. Domenico Cantatore (Ruvo di Puglia 1906 - Parigi 1998). Di umilissime origini per caso si accosta all'arte, da autodidatta, dimostrando subito buona disposizione. Dalla Puglia, nel 1922, si trasferisce prima a Roma e poi, nel 1925, a Milano dove inizia a dipingere e a frequentare il gruppo di artisti legati al movimento artistico e letterario di Corrente. Nel 1930 tiene la sua prima personale alla Galleria d'arte moderna. A Milano strinse amicizia con  Carlo Carrà, Alfonso Gatto, Leonardo Sinisgalli, Salvatore Quasimodoe, su tutti, con Raffaele Carrieri, suo conterraneo. Nonostante le ristrettezze economiche nel 1932 si trasferì  a Parigi, dove conobbe a fondo gli impressionisti e la pittura di Pablo Picasso, Amedeo Modigliani ed Henri Matisse. Ebbe modo di frequentare anche gli italiani Carlo Levi e Filippo de Pisis. Tornato a Milano, nel 1934 espose alla Galleria del Milione i disegni del periodo parigino. Raggiunta la notorietà nel 1940 gli fu assegnata, per chiara fama, la cattedra di Figura presso l'Accademia di belle arti di Brera, succedendo così ad Aldo Carpi. Nel 1948 conobbe Giorgio Morandi dal quale assimilò il realismo. Partecipò successivamente alla Biennale di Venezia, dove gli vennero dedicate pareti e sale personali e alla Quadriennale di Roma. Il protagonista indiscusso delle sue opere fu il suo Sud, abbandonato in giovane età ma sempre presente nelle sue opere.

      - Holzschnitt in Hell- und Dunkelgrau, 1906, auf Japan-Bütten, signiert und datiert. Darstellungsgröße 20:17 cm, Blattgröße 29:21,5 cm. – An drei Ecken mit Falz aufgeklebt. Nr. 24 von 25 Exx. In jeder Hinsicht einwandfreies Exemplar dieses schönen Holzschnitts. Landschaftsmaler und Graphiker. 1902-1906 Schüler von Eugen Bracht (1842-1921) in Dresden. Studienaufenthalte in Paris und Schottland (1907/08). „Siegfried Berndt begann um 1903, sich mit dem Farbholzschnitt zu beschäftigen. Bei ihm sind die japanischen Analogien besonders offensichtlich. Zahlreich sind die inhaltlichen Übereinstimmungen, häufig deckungsgleich die Sujets. Er stellt Boote, Brücken, Wasser du Bäume dar und greift gestalterische Aspekte der Japaner auf. Bei kaum einem anderen Künstler können die fernöstlichen Anregungen wie ungewöhnliche Bildausschnitte, angeschnittene Objekte, flächenhafte Zweidimensionalität, weitgehende Schattenlosigkeit, gleichmäßige Präsenz der Linien und konturierte Farbflächen so deutlich beobachtet werden wie bei Berndt. Ausgezeichnete Beispiele dafür sind „Windstille" von 1906, zwei um 1908 entstandene Darstellungen der Seine-Brücke bei St. Cloud sowie zwei „Landungsstege" von 1911, die direkt auf Hiroshige zurückgeführt werden können."

Erstdruck der Erstbeschreibung des Wenckebach-Bündel - Aus dem Vorbesitz von Dr. Augustus Désiré Waller!"Ein weiteres wichtiges Arbeitsgebiet Karel Frederik Wenckebachs (1864-1940) waren die Fragen nach dem Ursprung und dem Weg der kardialen Erregung - eines der wichtigsten Themen der medizinischen Wissenschaft der Jahrhundertwende. Eine Reihe von Beiträgen ging diesen Fragen nach (s. ob.) und führte zur Beschreibung des mittleren Internodalbündels (Wenckebach-Bündel), das vom hinteren Rand des Sinusknotens hinter der oberen Hohlvene entlang des Vorhofseptums bis zum oberen Rand des AV-Knotens verläuft: "Über einen Suppenteller gebeugt, mit Schere und Pinzette das Menschliche Herz um die Ausmündung der Venen analysierend habe ich (...) eine merkwürdige Muskulatur an der Vena cava superior gefunden" (Wenckebach 1907). Dies war neben der Arbeit von Tawara die entscheidende Anregung für die experimentellen Arbeiten von Keith und Flack (1907), die zur Erstbeschreibung des Sinusknoten führten: "Der Anatom vom London Hospital, A. Keith hat auf meine Bitte die anatomische Durchforschung des betreffenden Gebietes unternommen (...)" (Wenckebach 1907)." "WENCKEBACH machte bereits in den Veröffentlichungen von 1906 und 1907 auf die Existenz einer internodalen Muskelverbindung aufmerksam, in der er eine Struktur vermutete, der eine wichtige Bedeutung bei der Genese von Herzrhythmusstörungen zugeschrieben werden konnte. Sein Beitrag bezog sich dabei auf Hinweise aus den Veröffentlichungen von His (1899), der das Atrioventrikularbündel beschrieben hatte, und KEITH (1902, 1904), der über schlingenförmige Muskelbündel an der Vena cava superior berichtet hatte. WENCKEBACH lieferte damit einen weiteren Hinweis auf die möglichen Wege der kardialen Erregungsausbreitung - damit auch mögliche Herzrhythmusstörungen - und beschrieb den anatomischen Ort seiner Beobachtungen." "Das WENCKEBACH-Bündel ist eines der drei Internodalbündel - das mittlere -, deren Existenz und physiologische Bedeutung jedoch keineswegs gesichert scheinen (HEINECKER 1986). Das mittlere Internodalbündel entspringt vom hinteren Anteil des Sinusknotens, verläuft nach rechts hinten um die Vena cava superior und den rechten Vorhof herum und zieht entlang des Vorhofseptums vor der Fossa ovalis zum oberen Teil des AV-Knotens. Das Bündel gibt kleine Seitenäste an den linken Vorhof ab. Teilweise vermischen sich die Fasern des anterioren und mittleren Internodalbündels vor ihrem Eintritt in den AV-Knoten. Die Erregungsleitungsgeschwindigkeit in den Internodalen Leitungsbahnen ist schneller als die Geschwindigkeit der Erregungen im Arbeitsmyokard und langsamer als im His-Bündelstamm. Für die Erregungsleitung im Vorhof sind darüber hinaus auch das anteriore Bündel (JAMES-Bündel) und das posteriore Bündel (THOREL-Bündel) von Bedeutung." Eberhard J. Wormer, Syndrome der Kardiologie und ihre Schöpfer (1989), pp.241-250Die Beiträge zur Kenntnis der menschlichen Herztätigkeit, gliedern sich in drei Teile mit insgesamt 14 Kapiteln: Venenpuls Über Störung der Reizleitung zwischen Venen und Vorkammer Über Ausfall von V, und von AS + Vs infolge der Reizbarkeit Über doppelte und mehrfache Herztätigkeit Über Dissoziation der Tätigkeit beider Vorkammern: Die Muskulatur an der Vena cava superior Über an den Venen ausgelösten Extrasystolen Über Dissoziation der Tätigkeit der Venenmuskulatur Über die "Stanniussche Ligatur" beim Menschen Über Dissoziation der Ventrikeltätigkeit Über einfache Störungen der Reizleitung mit emanzipierter Kammertätigkeit Vorhofsextrasystole infolge von Dissoziation durch Leistungsstörung Über am menschlichen Herzen beobachtete Lucianische Perioden Über den pseudo-positiven Venenpuls bei Tachykardie. Ferner enthält dieser Band noch weitere interessante Arbeit zur Physiologie des Herzens von F. Klemperer, A. Samojloff, Eugen Rehfisch, Valentina Algina, E. Weber, G.F. Nicolai und D. Pletnew.Wenckebach is credited for describing the median bundle of the heart's conductive system that leads to the atrioventricular node. This bundle was named Wenckebach's bundle, and is one of four internodal pathways, the others being the posterior internodal tract (Thorel's pathway), and the two branches of the anterior internodal tract (Bachmann's bundle plus a descending branch).

        A Summer Ride through Western Tibet.

      London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1906 - Octavo. Original olive-green cloth, gilt lettered spine, untrimmed. Pale mark across lettering on spine, scattered foxing. A very good copy, with the publisher's slip pasted to the front free endpaper (informing booksellers that they should not offer a discount). 74 monochrome illustrations from photographs on 40 plates, illustrations in the text, folding coloured map of Jammu and Kashmir showing Duncan's route. First edition, presentation copy from the Scottish traveller Ella Robertson Christie (1861-1949), inscribed on the blank before the half-title: "Mary E. Haldane, May 1906, from E. C. of C." (Ella Christie of Cowden Castle, her home in Perthshire); and with a loosely inserted note in another hand: "From Miss Christie". The recipient may be Mary Elizabeth Haldane (née Sanderson, 1825-1925), mother of Elizabeth Sanderson Haldane, writer and suffragist, and paternal grandmother of the writer Naomi Mitchison. Ella Christie - described as "objective, articulate, and scholarly" (Robinson) - was the author of Through Khiva to Golden Samarkand (1925), is mentioned several times in the present work and is credited with nine photographic contributions; she also makes a rather splendid entrance: "Soon I heard the music, which had never completely died away, coming very near, and on looking round saw, to my astonishment, a lady walk into the bagh [garden] accompanied by the band and followed by an immense crowd. I was having tea and sent Aziz Khan to give my salaam and ask if she would join me; she came at once, and proved to be a countrywoman of my own on her way from Leh to Skardo. In coming down the hill she had fallen in with the procession, in which she was immediately made the leading figure and was immensely surprised, amused and delighted with her own dramatic entrance into Khapallu, and had no idea till I told her what it all meant" (p. 259). Jane Duncan (1848-1909) was a Scottish explorer whose "travels are full of delight. She was so exhilarated by the clear air and the abandonment of her side-saddle (she chose most daringly to ride astride, like men) that when she chanced upon Ella Christie one day - both treating their meeting in the emptiest corner of Asia as the most natural thing in the world - she chose not to accompany her but to carry on alone" (ibid.). A fascinating association copy that links two intrepid women travellers of the early 20th century. See Howgego III C36 for Christie; Robinson, Wayward Women, pp. 40 & 43; Yakuzi D171.

      Hodder & Stoughton 1906 - First edition. Edition de Luxe, number 223 of 500 copies signed by Arthur Rackham. Large 4to. Full white vellum with gilt lettering and decoration. Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. A fine bright copy, lacks ties. Endpaper with map of Kensington Gardens and fifty colour plates mounted onto brown art paper and protected by captioned tissue guards. The plates for this version of Barrie's tale are magnificent. In 1902 J.M. Barrie wrote the novel "the Little White Bird", the central chapters of which tell of a child named Peter Pan, ".who escaped from being a human when he was seven days old . and flew back to Kensington Gardens." This part of the story was then developed by Barrie and the first book to appear with the title of Peter Pan was this 1906 version to which Arthur Rackham provided 50 magnificent colour illustrations. A contemporary review of this book published in "The World" reads "Mr Barrie has done what no one else has done since the inventor of "Alice", he has invented a new legend, a modern folk story which comprehends all the innermost secrets of the modern child, be he four or forty. Mr Rackham, for his part, has been bewitched in his cradle: he does not dream of fairies or hobgoblins, he knows them." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Manuale di economia politica con una introduzione alla scienza sociale.

      Milan: Società editrice libraria,, 1906. Small octavo. Original red cloth, spine and front board lettered gilt, patterned endpapers, red edges. Spine lightly faded, corners gently rubbed; a very good copy. First edition of Pareto's masterpiece, one of the most important contributions to economics in the 20th century, published as volume 13 of the series Piccola Biblioteca Scientifica. It is in the Manuale di Economia Politica that Pareto's changed position in regard to economic theory and politics is most completely stated. The Manuale "is better conceived and, more important, much better thought through than the Cours d'Economie Politique (1896–7). It is basically a work of synthesis in which Pareto presented a general theory of economic equilibrium which is considerably more refined than Walras's" (IESS).
