        Erste Symphonie in D dur; Zweite Symphonie in C Moll; Dritte Symphonie in D Moll; Vierte Symphonie in G Dur. [Study scores]

      Wien... Leipzig: Universal-Edition [PN 6], 1906. 1f. (title), 3-171, [1] (blank) pp. The first edition of the full score was published by Weinberger in Vienna in 1898; Universal acquired the rights in 1906. Later editions replace Weinberger's plate number with the Universal number U.E. 2931. "The four-movement version in which the symphony is now known remains rich in imagery and technical diversity. In the opening bars Mahler uses the extraordinary orchestral effect of a unison A over seven octaves in the strings, all except the lowest basses playing harmonics, 'Wie ein Naturlaut' ('Like a sound of nature'); a kind of virtual-reality effect is created by three offstage trumpets (the first two directed to be placed initially 'in the very far distance'), as if to stress a physical separation between the platform orchestra as Nature, with its explicitly marked cuckoo calls, and the realm of human activity. Mahler characteristically consigned to the silence between the second and third movements the disillusioning dramatic catastrophe, figured as the tragic love experience which separates the symphony's protagonist, like the wayfarer of the song cycle, from the comforts of youthful illusion. What follows is the most experimental of the symphony's four movements: an ironic funeral march based on the children's round Bruder Martin ('Frère Jacques'), whose trio-like interpolations include one of Mahler's most explicit evocations of the Bohemian street musicians encountered in his childhood; the pungent, chromatically inflected orchestral timbre is appropriately enriched (at a point marked 'Mit Parodie') with a percussion part for a bass drum with Turkish cymbals attached, to be played by a single musician. Only in the symphony's finale does Mahler mobilize all the resources of the post-Wagnerian orchestra in a large-scale dramatic narrative. Daemonic forces and heroic aspiration are colourfully symbolized in a movement whose expressive poles are represented on the one hand by the delicately-nuanced 'Gesang' theme that functions as a contrasting second subject, on the other by a triumphal march, whose final statement follows a cyclic flashback to the opening of the first movement (on whose falling 4ths it is based). Already, at the end of this work, Mahler was experimenting with ways of intensifying available techniques for creating an overwhelming volume of sound. He suggests in the score that the expanded horn section (he seems to have envisaged at least nine players at this point) should stand up, bells raised, in order to surmount the rest of the orchestral tutti with their peroration." Peter Franklin in Grove Music Online. With: Zweite Symphonie in C Moll... (nur für Privatgebrauch). Wien... Leipzig: Universal-Edition [without PN], [after 1906]. 1f. (title), 3-209, [i] (blank) pp. With "In die 'Universal-Edition' aufgenommen" to title followed by listing of agents in Budapest, Pozsony (Bratislava), Leipzig, and London. The first edition of the full score was published by Hofmeister in Leipzig in 1899; Universal acquired the rights in 1906. Later editions use the original plates but add the plate number U.E. 2933. "A symphonic cantata for soloists, chorus and orchestra in which the progression from tension to resolution is reinterpreted as a narrative of apocalypse and subsequent redemption (the 'Resurrection' of the symphony's subsequent unofficial subtitle). Judeo-Christian mythology supplied certain of its details, but reinterpreted and even subverted in a striking manner. If Mahler's programmatic justification of his generically diverse suite of movements extended established 19th-century precedents, the symphony's scale and close matching of musical and conceptual details were highly original. The Second Symphony gained popularity in Mahler's lifetime only in the wake of the initially more readily appreciated Third Symphony... This is striking in view of the Third's arguably more arcane extension and intensification of all the salient features of the Second." Peter Franklin in Grove Music Online. With: Dritte Symphonie in D Moll. Wien Leipzig Paris: Josef Weinberger [PN9], [after 1906]. 1f. (title), 3-231, []i] (blank) pp. The first edition of the full score was published by Weinberger in 1899; Universal acquired the rights in 1906. Later editions use the original plates but replace the plate number with the Universal number 950. "The Third Symphony arguably takes as its theme the process of Mahler's assimilation while extending the iconoclastic implications of the Second's finale in the half-hour long first movement... The often deliberately realistic vulgarity of the military-band style orchestration of the march highlights the implicitly subversive origins of its main theme (a student song... beloved of anti-Habsburg, pan-Germanists in Mahler's student days) and lends an almost concrete political implication to the 'anarchic' qualities that outraged the work's more consevative critics. The evolutionary programme of the rest of the symphony accommodates the historically successive forms of the minuet and trio and the Beethovenian scherzo in a unique manner... The hushed 'Mitternachtslied' ('O Mensch! Gib Acht!') from Nietzsche's Also sprach Zarathustra proclaims the work's mid-1890s modernity in conclusive fashion (Richard Strauss's tone poem inspired by Nietzsche's book was also completed in 1896)... The subsequent, celebratory setting of 'Es sungen drei Engel einen süsses Gesang', with children imitating bell sounds, provides an effective foil for the extended orchestral Adagio... This concluding celebration of 'divine love', its culminatory peroration in a transfigured D major, was readily admired even by the symphony's detractors - a fact which highlights its tendency towards assimilationist reconciliation (anticipating Mahler's conversion to Roman Catholicism before his return to Vienna in 1897). From this perspective the symphony might be read as an unlikely lexicon of sentiments that sustained the mythology of the Austro-Hungarian empire in the fragile and increasingly fragmented last stage of its history." Peter Franklin in Grove Music Online. With: Vierte Symphonie in G Dur. Wien: Ludwig Doblinger (Bernhard Herzmansky) [PN 31], [after 1906]. 1f. (title), 3-125, [i] (blank) pp. The first edition was published by Doblinger in 1902; Universal acquired the rights in 1906. Later editions use the original plates but replace the plate number with the Universal number U.E. 952. "The Fourth Symphony's posthumous reputation as one of Mahler's more approachable, straightforward works does not correspond with its original reception as an exercise in sacrilegious modernity. Mahler's most explicit realization of one of the implications of Wagner's interpretation of the late 18th-century symphony as characterized by 'lofty glee' exposed the ideological work done by the notion of 'classical music' in policing the lines of demarcation between high and low styles. Both are invoked in the second movement (with its scordatura violin representing Freund Hein, 'Death the Fiddler') and surprisingly juxtaposed in the predominantly slow third movement. The 'himmlische Leben' song... ends the 'tetralogy'... of Mahler's first four symphonies by exemplifying the Wunderhorn style of the 1890s." Peter Franklin in Grove Music Online. Bindings slightly worn, rubbed and bumped. Some browning; offsetting, and other minor defects. 4 volumes. Octavo. Blue quarter leather with marbled boards, dark brown leather label with titling gilt to spine, marbled edges, decorative endpapers. All titles within decorative Jugendstil border printed in sepia, with list of orchestral instruments printed to versos of titles of Volumes 2-4. Annotations in pencil in an unidentified hand to Vol. 1, in German, mostly commenting on tempo markings and dynamics and apparently related to a specific performance/recording.

        Ventriloquism (Ventriloquist Dummy Magic) 1906 w/ rare dust jacket!

      Rare and early book on Ventriloquism (part of the larger category of Magic and Illusion Performance) in Scarce Dust Jacket! This is the first dust jacket on a book I have seen from before 1910 outside of a book fair or a prestigious collection.Ventriloquism by Charles H. Olin Hardcover First Edition - First Printing Penn Publishing 1906. Contains several photographs, diagrams, and even an example of a dialogue between the ventriloquist and two dummies! Near Fine+ in Very Good+ Dustjacket! A very tight copy, most pages very clean, in scarce dust jacket! You just don't find books with their original dust jackets from prior to 1910 very often! Essentially complete, very slight edgewear to the top of spine and top edge, otherwise complete and intact! I could find very few examples of this book on WorldCat, and none for sale of the first edition, although some later edition copies are available. However, this may be the ONLY copy surviving in its original dust jacket, or at least one of very few. Probably the only which will be available in the next several years. If this doesn't sell here, I may take it to an antiquarian bookseller who will probably ask much more. Don't hesitate.All modern books with dust jackets come with dust jacket covers.Book will be separately bubble-wrapped and placed in either a flat-rate mailer or a box.

        [Photo Album]: San Francisco Earthquake and Seattle World's Fair

      San Francisco and Seattle. 1906-1909. Oblong small octavo. Measuring 6" x 7". Black textured leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 128 sepia-toned or black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring between 1" x 1" and 4" x 5", some with captions. Very good album with rubbing and edgewear with near fine photographs.A photo album beginning with a trip to the Seattle World's Fair in 1909 through 1914. The photographs are not in chronological order. The fair's theme was Alaska--Yukon--Pacific Exposition and was originally set to take place in 1907 for the 10th anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush but was pushed back to 1909 due to a conflict with the Jamestown Exposition. The photos begin with snapshots around the city and of the coast. There are images of Seattle harbor with sailboats in the distance as well as large cruise ships and the wooded areas surrounding the city. The fair also included exhibits from Canada and Japan, as well as Alaskan Native American tribes and the Igorrotes from the Philippines. The Igorrotes are seen in snapshots participating in tribal dances, climbing trees, and holding spears. One of these photos shows a young Igorrotes boy, with the shadow of a bowler hat-wearing fairgoer at his feet. Other photos show candids of fashionably dressed revelers walking through the exhibit as well as photos of the architecture of the fair and scenes from exhibits including the maple ice cream stand in the Canadian section. Later photos show men hiking in the Washington wilderness as well as boating and shooting. Photos from 1910 show a trip to "the seaside" with images of men and women posed on a beach and in a large boat. Towards the end of the album the photographs show the results of an earthquake which appears to be the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. These photos show ruined buildings and people walking around the rubble. One photo shows San Francisco Victorian homes with blown out windows. The final pages show the travelers posed for candids and portraits while hiking and on picnics in Northern California and Washington and includes a photo strip images of a couple. A wonderful collection of well-composed travel photographs featuring events in Seattle and San Francisco. .

        Heinrich Kley: Das Hotel Feldberger Hof (Originalzeichnung)

      1906 - Aquarell und Deckweiß über Bleistift auf Karton 27 x 38,5 cm Links unten signiert Verso Nachlassstempel Provenienz: Nachlass Heinrich Kley Das Hotel Feldberger Hof wird 1864 gegründet. 15 Jahre später übernimmt Carl Mayer den Betrieb und erweitert ihn – begünstigt durch eine verbesserte Straßenanbindung und den Aufschwung des Skisports – in den kommenden Jahren bedeutend. 1906 erfolgt der Umbau im großen Stil durch das renommierte Karlsruher Architekturbüro Curjel & Moser. Der für seine topographischen Ansichten bekannte Karlsruher Künstler Heinrich Kley arbeitet in den Jahren um 1900 wiederholt für Curjel & Moser. Seine Spezialität sind stimmungsvolle Aquarelle, in denen Architektur und Landschaft als harmonische Einheit erscheinen. Diese wurden durch die Hofkunsthandlung Velten als hochwertige Ansichtskarten reproduziert und verkauft. Anzunehmen ist, dass auch unser Aquarell für die Vervielfältigung als Ansichtskarte gedacht war, mit der für das neue Luxushotel geworben wurde bzw. werden sollte. BIOGRAFIE: Heinrich Kley (1863 Karlsruhe - 1945 München). Nach Beendigung des Studiums an der Karlsruher Kunstschule 1885 ist Heinrich Kley darum bemüht, sich im Kunstleben seiner badischen Heimatstadt zu etablieren. Zwar erhält er immer wieder Aufträge von ortsansässigen Privatpersonen, Behörden sowie Unternehmen, engagiert sich in der lokalen Künstlerschaft und nimmt an Ausstellungen teil, doch bleiben größere Erfolge letztlich aus. Diese stellen sich erst nach 1900 ein, als das Unternehmen Krupp in Essen auf Kleys Fähigkeiten als Schilderer topographischer Sujets aufmerksam wird. Durch die Verbindung von zeichnerischer Präzision und koloristischem Feingefühl gelingt es ihm, die spezifischen atmosphärischen Stimmungen in der Welt der Gußstahlfabriken, Hüttenwerke und Schiffswerften einzufangen. Seine um impressionistische Elemente bereicherte realistische Kunstauffassung überzeugt bald auch andere große Unternehmen, so dass Kley innerhalb weniger Jahre den Ruf eines erstrangigen und vielbeschäftigten Industriemalers genießt. Der breiten Öffentlichkeit wird Kley durch die Mitarbeit an den Zeitschriften Simplicissimus und Jugend bekannt, die ihn 1909 zum Umzug nach München bewegen. Bis zum Ersten Weltkrieg veröffentlichen sie hunderte seiner humoristischen, satirischen und grotesken Federzeichnungen. Themen der Gesellschaftspolitik, des technischen Fortschritts sowie des Verhältnisses zwischen Mann und Frau erfasst er mit phantasiereichen Bildideen, psychologischem Einfühlungsvermögen und unverwechselbarer Virtuosität. Mit gleicher Könnerschaft charakterisiert er menschliche Verhaltensweisen durch Mensch-Tier-Vergleiche pointiert und unterhaltsam. Obwohl es nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg ruhig um den von Schicksalsschlägen getroffenen Künstler wird, erfahren seine Federzeichnungen eine erstaunliche Rezeption in den USA. In den späten 1930er Jahren wird Walt Disney auf sie aufmerksam und nutzt sie fortan als wichtige Inspirationsquelle für seine Zeichentrickfilme. So lebt Kleys Kunst in den Figuren von „Dumbo“, „Fantasia“ und „Dschungelbuch“ weiter und begeistert weltweit ein Millionenpublikum. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Fine Signed Portrait Photograph, (Eleonora, 1858-1924, Italian Actress)

      1906 - showing her seated head and shoulders, in profile to the viewer's right, wearing a light muslin shawl over an off-the-shoulder dress, relaxed but thoughtful, signed and inscribed on the mount in Italian to Mathilde LINDPAINTNER (1851-1942, née Martins de Almeida, wife, 1879, of the Bavarian Oberstleutnant Ludwig Lindpaintner, 1849-1896), "with remembrances and good wishes", in a circular print 6 inches diameter on card mount 19" x 13¾", Florence, 7th September small round blot in blank upper portion of mount Eleonora Duse appears to have chosen this photograph, not to display any drama, but as an expression of herself in repose - in contrast to her acting, in which she aimed to let the character, and only the character, display emotion. Mathilde Lindpaintner was half Portuguese, half Bavarian - her mother's father was Prince Karl, second son of King Maximilian I of Bavaria. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Jesus: An Unfinished Portrait

      New York: Funk and Wagnalls Company. 1906. Second edition. Octavo. 295pp. Dark red cloth gilt. Spine a little sunned, else near fine. Presented by Luther Burbank to W. Atlee Burpee and Inscribed by him on a card: "To my esteemed friend W. Atlee Burpee from Luther Burbank. Santa Rosa, Cal. Oct. 25th 1909."

Burbank, was an important California botanist who developed over 800 different strains of plant life; Burpee founded the Burpee Seed Company in 1876.

        I funghi mangerecci e velenosi dell'Europa media: con speciale riguardo a quelli che crescono nel Trentino. Con 120 tavole cromolitografiche e una in fototipia. II edizione.

      Zippel, Trento, 1906. 142 p., 121 c. di tav. (I-CXII, XXIa, XXVIIIa, LIIIa, LIIIb, LVa, XCVIIbis, XCIXa, CIVa, CIXa), 22 cm, mezza pelle coeva con dorso a cinque nervi e titoli oro. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo. Esemplare completo nel testo e nelle tavole in piacevole legatura coeva. Come si evince dall'introduzione dell'autore in questa II edizione sono aggiunte nuove tavole ed è aumentata la qualità delle altre: "La prima edizione di quest'opera, uscita nel 1899, fu per ragioni di opportunità limitata ad un numero inferiore di copie delle stabilite in antecedenza, e per le quali erano già approntate le tavole illustrative. Ora che è esaurita, si giudicò conveniente di usufruire anche le tavole rimaste per una seconda edizione che qui presentiamo riveduta nel testo ed aumentata di otto tavole nuove illustranti specie pure interessanti per il nostro scopo. Anche parecchie delle tavole già esistenti, che erano un po' mancanti nelle tinte, furono ritoccate e ridotte al colore naturale. Non potendosi cangiare la numerazione primitiva, onde non venissero troppo dislocate, le tavole nuove furono segnate col numero della prossima affine, aggiungendovi una lettera dell'alfabeto per specificarle. I nomi volgari dei funghi non si curarono di più di quanto fu fatto nella prima edizione pel motivo che fra questi ve ne sono pochissimi di veramente differenziali della specie, e questi furono già presi in considerazione. Gli altri sono comuni a moltissime specie; così i funghi che crescono in file si dicono funghi della saetta, quelli sparsi ciodi, ciodini, ombrellini, cappellini, ecc., quelli degli alberi si denominano dall'albero, quantunque appartengano a specie, generi o famiglie diverse. Un tale agglomeramento di specie sotto la medesima denominazione non serve che ad accrescere la confusione, mentre se si trascurano questi nomi, il raccoglitore dovrà attenersi alla descrizione ed alle figure, e con ciò riuscirà a conoscere i veri caratteri distintivi della specie, e quindi a separare meglio i fungi mangerecci dai venefici. Inoltre queste denominazioni multiple, per lo meno inutili, saranno dimenticate e sostituite con quelle segnate nel testo come nota specifica. Trento, nel Maggio 1906". Opera rara mancante, in entrambe le edizioni, alla biblioteca comunale di Trento.

        [Photo Album]: San Francisco Earthquake and Seattle World's Fair

      San Francisco and Seattle. 1906-1909. Oblong small octavo. Measuring 6" x 7". Black textured leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 128 sepia-toned or black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring between 1" x 1" and 4" x 5", some with captions. Very good album with rubbing and edgewear with near fine photographs.A photo album beginning with a trip to the Seattle World's Fair in 1909 through 1914. The photographs are not in chronological order. The fair's theme was Alaska--Yukon--Pacific Exposition and was originally set to take place in 1907 for the 10th anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush but was pushed back to 1909 due to a conflict with the Jamestown Exposition. The photos begin with snapshots around the city and of the coast. There are images of Seattle harbor with sailboats in the distance as well as large cruise ships and the wooded areas surrounding the city. The fair also included exhibits from Canada and Japan, as well as Alaskan Native American tribes and the Igorrotes from the Philippines. The Igorrotes are seen in snapshots participating in tribal dances, climbing trees, and holding spears. One of these photos shows a young Igorrotes boy, with the shadow of a bowler hat-wearing fairgoer at his feet. Other photos show candids of fashionably dressed revelers walking through the exhibit as well as photos of the architecture of the fair and scenes from exhibits including the maple ice cream stand in the Canadian section. Later photos show men hiking in the Washington wilderness as well as boating and shooting. Photos from 1910 show a trip to "the seaside" with images of men and women posed on a beach and in a large boat. Towards the end of the album the photographs show the results of an earthquake which appears to be the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. These photos show ruined buildings and people walking around the rubble. One photo shows San Francisco Victorian homes with blown out windows. The final pages show the travelers posed for candids and portraits while hiking and on picnics in Northern California and Washington and includes a photo strip images of a couple. A wonderful collection of well-composed travel photographs featuring events in Seattle and San Francisco. .

ÉDITION ORIGINALE TRES RARE. Achevé d'imprimer par Motteroz pour H. de Waroquier - 1906 - 202 pages. Superbe reliure plein maroquin bleu marine, signée Gruel. Dos à nerfs orné et doré. Triple filet doré encadrant les plats. Tête dorée sur témoins, non rogné. Large dentelle intérieure. Gardes de soie bleue moirée. Pas de rousseur. Parfait état. Format grand in-4°(32x25). Henry de Waroquier (1881-1970) est un peintre, sculpteur, dessinateur, photographe, et graveur français. Il est d'abord professeur de composition décorative à l'École Estienne à Paris, et professeur de peinture à l'Académie scandinave. Waroquier peint surtout la Bretagne de 1900 à 1910, en se rapprochant du cloisonnisme des Nabis. Puis il fréquente Modigliani et l'École de Paris. Les voyages qu'il fait en Italie en 1912 et en 1920, puis en Espagne en 1921, l'amènent à peindre des paysages et des visages humains. Il participe au salon des Tuileries de 1938 sur le thème de l'Espagne. Il est d'abord influencé par le cubisme, mais des éclairages dramatiques ainsi qu'un travail sur des visages pathétiques donnent à son oeuvre un accent tragique. Également fresquiste, il exécute en 1937 une composition murale pour le palais de Chaillot, La Tragédie. Le musée d'art moderne de la ville de Paris présente une exposition de ses sculptures dans les années 1950. Henri de Waroquier est aussi poète et photographe. Il était ami de Georges Duhamel, de Paul Claudel, et de Gaston Bachelard. Il nous reste figer dans le temps par une estampe de Henri Vergé-Sarrat (Henry de Waroquier dans son atelier) dont un exemplaire est conservé au Musée du Domaine départemental de Sceaux. Yvonne (1884- ?) était la fille de Paul Mirabaud (1848-1908) banquier philatéliste français. Il est l'un des signataires du Roll of Distinguished Philatelists qui distingue «les pères de la philatélie». C'est l'histoire de l'enfance d'Yvonne Mirabaud et la vie de sa famille de 1884 à 1900 à l'aide des photographies de l'époque. C'est un des rares livres de Henry de Waroquier. 1ère Edition [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
