        John Dorn Promoter

      Chicago: Monarch Book Co., 1906. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. Illustrations by August Abelmann. Original brick-red publisher's cloth, blocked in gilt, ochre, and black. A sparkling copy. A thrilling romance of the timber industry, featuring a swindling Count, a heroic Indian Chief, a Rabbi, weird "thought-elfs," and telepathy. Is this the start of a bad joke? It only gets better. The author is clearly concerned with renewable forestry, the perilous state of Native American Indians and their lands, the absence of business opportunities for women, and the plight of American Jews during the first decade of the 20th-century. And of course, this couldn't be a "real" romance without sexual tensions, and a subplot of good vs. evil. The novel commences in the South after the Civil War when a young man returns home to find nothing left, and no one remaining. The once grand Virginia estate is in shambles and the tobacco fields are overgrown; the young man stares at the ruins, turns, and says farewell. The young man goes to Yale, gets married, and decides to return and fix up the estate; the scheme fails of course (how could it be otherwise). The couple and their daughter, Helen Chadbourne, move north to Chicago. Although adept at business, Helen finds few opportunities for women and wants to dedicate her life to helping others. However, she does find the love of of two men: John Dorn and Ned Danvers, and she inspires each of them to have chthonic spiritual experiences (sic). Helen's uncle is negotiating for the lumber rights to Indian lands on Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Helen identifies with Chief Eagle Wing's plight of wanting to aid his impoverished tribe, while not wanting to destroy their land. Her uncle believes only clear-cutting timber will be financially viable; Helen convinces Dorn and Danvers not only to aid the Indian tribe with money, but ensure that they will still be able to live in a forest. Dorn comes up with a plan to create the Lumber Securities Company, a syndicate of the leaders of the timber industry, who would agree to a renewable forestry plan. Helen inspires Dorn to help impoverished Jewish immigrants by creating a lending library and a savings bank. She then inspires Danvers to become a writer, and through the aid of Chief Eagle Wing, Danvers is able to reveal his deepest thoughts to Helen telepathically (sic!). But there are evil forces at work in Chicago that seek to destroy the Lumber Securities Company through stock manipulation. At a crucial moment, the two spiritual adepts Eagle Wing and his side-kick Rabbi, whom Helen has aided, combine forces to defeat evil men. "The forces of spiritual enlightenment win, Danvers writes a play with a spiritual theme that is a great success, Dorn wins Helen for his bride, and everyone involved with the Lumber Securities Company stands to make a fortune" (SOURCE: James A. Kaser, The Chicago of Fiction: A Resource Guide, no. 86 and pp. 30-31). Our copy is many times more expensive than the two shabby copies we've seen on the market, and we invite interested parties to buy them, but be assured that the present one is in "museum quality" condition, and is likely to be the finest in private ownership.

        The Voyage of the "Scotia".

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1906. Being a Record of a Voyage of Exploration in Antarctic Seas. By Three of the Staff. Octavo. Original grey cloth spine and front board lettered and illustrated in black and white, top edge gilt, purple coated endpapers (Rosove's binding variant b, "less common" than the blue endpapers usually encountered). Photographic frontispiece, 58 similar plates, 3 maps, one full-page, 2 folding and coloured (one of these to the rear). Extremities lightly rubbed, and the spine as usual (Rosove: "The white lettering on the spine has stood the test of time poorly and is variably lost on virtually all copies"), light wear to head of front joint, occasional spotting to text-block, the folding map to rear somewhat foxed, two short closed tears to gutter, sometime partially tape-repaired verso, some resultant browning recto, one shallow chip along top edge. A very good copy. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the expedition leader, "George Esslemont Esq., M.P., with compliments from Wm. S. Bruce, Edin., 1910", on the half-title. The recipient was Liberal MP for Aberdeen South from 1907 to 1917. Bruce (1867-1921), despite being one of the most experienced polar scientists in Britain, was offered only a junior post on Scott's Discovery expedition, so decided to organise his own voyage. "With the blessing of the Scottish Geographical Society, Bruce raised funds for the Scottish national Antarctic expedition in the well-equipped Scotia (1902–4). The entire crew and scientists were virtually all Scottish, and the funds came from Scottish subscribers … Two summers were spent in biological and oceanographical work in the Weddell Sea and the south Atlantic. New coastline was discovered and named Coats Land, and the intervening winter was spent in Scotia Bay and on Laurie Island, South Orkneys, where an observatory, Omond House, was built, which remains as the oldest of all scientific observatories in Antarctica. This highly successful expedition returned to Scotland with large scientific collections which formed the basis of the Scottish Oceanographical Institute, founded by Bruce in Edinburgh in 1907" (ODNB). Bruce maintained that the voyage was a purely scientific enterprise and left the writing of a popular account to three of his colleagues, which one of them, Brown, later reflected deprived him of full recognition for his achievements.

The portfolio was manufactured as a blank notebook by the Rumford Supply Co. of Lynn, Massachusetts; an additional page of notebook paper laid-in with a numbered contents list and Marion Jackson's name signed.

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]

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.

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.
