        The Works of William Shakespeare in Ten Volumes.

      Stratford-on-Avon: Shakespeare Head Press, 1904-1906. Ten quarto volumes. This set is one of only twelve printed on pure vellum with a frontispiece illustration in each volume. It represents a monumental undertaking, which took four years to complete and consumed about 250 sheets for each of the twelve copies printed on vellum. The Shakespeare Head Press was founded by A. H. Bullen, who had the idea of printing the complete works of Shakespeare at Stratford-on-Avon as the result of a dream in which he was presented with a set of Shakespeare's works while visiting the town. This is the first edition of Shakespeare to have been published in Stratford and the first major publication of the Press. Although other Shakespeare Head Press sets printed on vellum regularly appear on the market, the Shakespeare is very difficult to obtain: the last copy on vellum to come to auction was in 1960. Volumes I and II are lacking the silk fore-edge ties, spine lettering a trifle ru bbed on volume VI, else a fine copy in creamy full limp vellum stamped in gilt. (Tomkinson p. 229, Ransom p. 9).

        Rare Autograph Musical Quotation

      - A rare AMQS from the important Italian concert pianist, teacher, and author of etudes, penned in the last year of his life. On a postcard bearing his portrait, Cesi has penned the beginning of one of his demanding piano studies, marked Presto, complete with fingerings and expressive marks. He has signed and dated in rather shaky writing: Naples, April 1906. On the verso, the postcard is addressed to the Argentinian collector Ramona Imaz Otaño. In fine condition. 5.5 x 3.5 inches (14.2 x 9.4 cm).Born in Naples, Cesi began his studies with his father, and later with Luigi Albanesi. He was heard by Sigismund Thalberg, who was so impressed with him that he made him one of his favourite pupils. He began his career as a concert performer in 1862 and quickly gained a reputation in Italy. At the age of 20 he won a competition to gain the position of piano professor at the Royal Conservatorio of San Pietro a Majella in Naples. When Anton Rubinstein was appointed director of the Petrograd Conservatory, he invited Cesi to direct the pianoforte schools there. Cesi accepted the appointment in 1885, remaining until 1891, when he was forced to return to Italy owing to a paralysis which had set in. This, however, left his intellect unimpaired and still gave him the use of his right hand, and in 1894 he became a teacher in the Conservatory at Palermo, and after a few years there he was able to return to Naples Conservatory, where he remained in charge of a chamber-music class until his death in 1907. His educational writings (Method for Pianoforte) had considerable importance, and he wrote many volumes of revision of piano music. Among his notable pupils were Giuseppe Martucci, Alessandro Longo, Michele Esposito, Samuel Maykapar, and Leopoldo Mugnone.

        The Achehnese. Translated by the late A. W. S. O'Sullivan. With an index by R. J. Wilkinson.

      Leyden: Late E. J. Brill, 1906 - 2 volumes, large octavo. Original dark green cloth, gilt lettered spines and front covers, ornamental panels on covers, drab grey endpapers. Booklabels of Dr A. O. Kouwenhoven. One or two very small white marks to back cover of volume II otherwise in exemplary condition. Half-tone frontispieces, half-tone and line illustrations throughout (two coloured folding maps of Acheh and plan of a dwelling house at the end on volume I). First edition in English of this important work on Aceh, "in the period of its greatest power [16th and 17th-centuries]. the most important Muhammadan state in Sumatra" (Brill, Encyclopaedia of Islam, VII p. 552). The author, Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje (1857-1936), was "a pioneer in the scientific study of Islam. While serving as a lecturer at the University of Leiden (1880–89), [he] visited Arabia (1884–85), stopping at Mecca. His classic work Mekka, 2 vol. (1888–89), reconstructs the history of the holy city and sheds light on the origins of Islam, early traditions and practices, and the first Islamic communities. The second volume, translated into English as Mekka in the Latter Part of the 19th Century (1931), contains many details of daily life in Islamic culture and deals with the Indonesian Muslim colony at Mecca. From 1890 to 1906 Snouck Hurgronje was professor of Arabic at Batavia, Java, and, as a government adviser, he originated and developed a Dutch colonial policy toward Islam that prevailed until the termination of Dutch rule in Indonesia in 1942. Though he was tolerant of Islamic religious life, his policy as a colonial official was to repress Islamic political agitation. His De Atjèhers, 2 vol. (1893–94; The Achenese), an ethnographic account of the people of northern Sumatra, became a standard reference work. Though Snouck Hurgronje remained a colonial adviser until 1933, he returned in 1906 to the Netherlands, where he was professor of Arabic and Islamic institutions at the University of Leiden until his death. He wrote extensively on a number of Islamic topics" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online). Hurgronje's study was produced against the backdrop of the long-running Aceh War (1873-1904), between the Netherlands and the forces of the Sultanate of Aceh, in which "Dutch forces became involved in a prolonged guerrilla war in the countryside. This war, however, drained the colonial treasury, and public opinion in the Netherlands became increasingly critical of the colonial administration. The administration later realised that their ignorance of the region had led them to commit serious errors. Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje, professor of Islamic studies at the University of Leyden (Leiden), was invited to undertake a thorough study of Aceh and published a book in 1893–94 on the Acehnese" (ibid). A particularly attractive set - bright and sharp-cornered - of this significant work. Howgego, Exploration 1850-1940, p. 1169 ("a standard reference work on the peoples of northern Sumatra").

      Montevideo: Talleres Gráficos Juan Fernández 1906 - Chromolithograph, originally varnished and mounted on original linen, rolled (Good, some minor stains and even crackling to varnish, with small chips of surface loss in lower area, largely outside of main map area, small hole in lower blank margin, old tack marks along blank margins, still decent condition for a map of its kind), 111.5 x 157 cm (44 x 62 inches). Extremely rare &#150; Saturnino Cortesi&#146;s large wall map of Montevideo, the authoritative official city plan of the Uruguayan capital made at the height of its golden era. Upon this large and detailed wall map of Montevideo, one can witness the city&#146;s explosive growth unfold in grand style, right before one&#146;s very eyes. This official plan, sponsored by the Uruguayan government, was drafted by the geographer Saturnino Cortesi, to provide the ultimate overview of Montevideo during the height of its golden era boom of the early 20th Century. Fuelled by sustained economic growth and immigration, the city was expanding, rapidly building new barrios, boulevards, grand squares, monumental edifices and the most modern infrastructure, all of which are detailed on the map. The map embraces the entire Department of Montevideo, with rapid development emanating out of the city and bay area in the lower centre of the map, with the rural areas extending into the interior. The &#145;Referencias&#146;, in the lower right corner, detail the stages of development across the different barrios and new suburbs, including: &#145;Manzanas Edificadas&#146; (fully built-up urban blocks &#150; coloured in grey); &#145;Manzanas Edificadas en Parte&#146; (partially built-up urban blocks - coloured in pink); &#145;Edificios Públicos&#146; (public buildings - coloured in red): as well as aspects of infrastructure, such as &#145;Ferro Carril&#146; (railway lines - in black intermittent lines); &#145;Caminos de Macadam ó Empredados&#146; (Completed paved roads - in bold orange lines); &#145;Caminos de Macadam en Construccion&#146; (Paved roads under construction - in intermittent orange lines); and &#145;Limites de las secciones judiciales&#146; (boundaries of judicial districts - in grey lines, with the districts numbered in grey). Around 1904, the Uruguayan government commissioned the geographer Saturnino Cortesi to create an authoritative master plan of the Montevideo Department, based on the most up-to-date information from the various official urban planning offices, corporate blueprints and archives. Cortesi&#146;s manuscript was edited by Juan Fernández, with the result being chromolithographed by his firm in Montevideo. The map was to be used by government agencies and private enterprises as the authoritative guide to the city, not only as it existed, but also to manage the dramatic developments that the Montevideo region was to undergo over the coming years. Importantly, the present map is the natural corollary of Saturnino Cortesi & Anibal Méndez&#146;s official national map, Mapa de la Republica Oriental del Uruguay construida con datos Existentes en el archivo de la ex-direccion general des obras publicas, archivos particulares datos tomados en el terreno y antecedentes suministrados por las autoridades locales y proprietarios de tierras (Montevideo: La Minerva, 1903). The present map is extremely rare. We cannot trace any sales records, nor any examples in institutions in North America or Europe. The Road to the Rise of Montevideo - San Felipe y Santiago de Montevideo was founded in 1724 by the Spanish on a fine natural harbour on the north side of the Río de la Plata Estuary. Initially populated by fifty families from Galicia and the Canary Islands, Montevideo was intended to be a simple buffer fortress to keep the Portuguese, from Brazil, out of the area, preserving Spain&#146;s control over Buenos Aires and the Estuary. Over the coming decades, the town experienced steady growth, as mariners preferred Montevideo&#146;s harbour to that of Buenos Aires, causing a rivalry between the two cities. In 1776, Montevideo received a great boost when it was selected as the Armada Real&#146;s principal naval b

Provenienz: Nachlaß Friedrich Schmöle. Die Malerin und Zeichnerin Mathilde Schmöle war seit 1876 mit dem Frankfurter Kaufmann F.P. Schmöle (1844-1924) verheiratet, der 1904 seinen Beruf aufgab, um sich ganz dem Malen und Reisen zu widmen. Nach der Vita ihres Mannes, der sich 1872 ein Landhaus in Kronberg erbauen ließ und dort in Kontakt trat mit den örtlichen Malern, könnte sie mit diesem gemeinsam bis 1905 Studienfahrten in die nähere Umgebung Frankfurts, nach Wetzlar und Braunfels sowie zwischen 1905 und 1913 nach Belgien und Holland, an die deutsche Nordseeküste, nach Sylt, Helgoland, in die Schweiz und nach Norditalien unternommen haben. Sie malte Landschaften, Porträts und Genrebilder. In engem brieflichem Kontakt stand sie mit Berta Riehl, Ehefrau des Kulturhistorikers und Novellisten W.H. Riehl, dessen Tochter Helene Riehl (geb. 1850) eine Landschaftsmalerin wurde. Laut einer überlieferten Anmerkung der Künstlerin war sie in Weimar eine Schülerin des Malers und Radierers F. Preller d. Ä. (1804-1878).

Fiala's own account of the expedition planned and funded by William Ziegler for whom Fiala had been photographer on a previous expedition and to whom this book is dedicated, Ziegler having died just eighteen months before it's publication. The explorers never reached the North Pole, their ship America broke up and their prOvisions were lost. One of the company died before a rescue ship arrived some two years later but the rest, including Fiala, survived and returned to the U.S. Some nine years after his rescue Fiala accompanied Theodore Roosevelt on an expedition into unexplored regions of Brazil. Later in his eventful life Fiala gave illustrated lectures on these and other adventures. He is remembered as an explorer, photographer and graphic artist of considerable merit.
