FERSEN, Jacques d'Adelsward
Paris: Leon Vanier (1907). Paris: Leon Vanier (1907). Two novellas, one of which was hailed by Rachilde as a minor masterpiece, both dealing with boys and thwarted love. The book was dedicated to Fersen's lover, Nino Cesarini, "blus beau que la lumière romaine." Edward Prime-Stevenson notes in his compendium The Intersexes called Une Jeunesse "the most artistic of Fersen's tales... It is a simple and graceful sketch of the passion of Robert Jélaine, a young French painter--sensual and prematurely disillusioned but not wholly embittered--for a Sicilian youth, Nino, with a head "like that of the David of Verocchio." The boy is living with his grandmother, at Taormina. Nino has inherited homosexuality, though he does not know it. But the instinct, and consequent incidents, bring his sudden separation from Jélaine." Very good in original wrappers, a bit browned, rebound in marbled paper boards. [Attributes: First Edition]

[Shackleton Nimrod Expedition]
London: R. Bell and Co., 1907. Small brass coloured metal box designed to safely store matches. (6.8 X 4.7 X 2 cm.) The metal box has a striker strip on the right hand side of the box. The top is hinged and has a catch on the front to prevent the box from opening unless desired. The box contains approximately 60 matches and for all intents and purposes is complete or full. The matches are what I would call a storm variety and designed to strike under windy conditions. The matches have a wooden core and a two colour chemical top. The contents are in excellent condition. Accompanying the box is a business card with the hand written provenance of the item. The box of matches was on the Nimrod Expedition and was collected from Shackleton's hut in 1955-56 by William Herbert Littlewood who was the Oceanographer on the Operation Deep Freeze I expedition. Fred Goldberg obtained 3 different artifacts from Littlewood in 1964 including this item. Accompanying the box of matches is a business card from Littlewood who was Deputy Scientific Attache for the United States Embassy. Littlewood has written the following inscription on the card "This box of wax vespers (matches)", was found in the Antarctic Hut used by Sir Ernest Shackleton in 1908-09 and was given to Mr. Fred Goldberg, October 8, 1964 and signed by Littlewood on the bottom of the card. The company who made the matches seem to have been making matches since the early 19th century and were a prominent London firm. I was going to try one of the matches but thought the new owner could be the first to str … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dulac, Edmund
New York & London: Charles Scribner's Sons & Hodder and Stoughton, 1907. Near fine.. Original gilt decorative cloth. 50 tipped-in color plates mounted on dark paper at the the back of the book as issued. xvi, 133, [3] pages. Slight bit of rear cover soil and front endpaper rubbed at hinge (not weak). First American edition of this beautiful Dulac work, the book that launched his career with gift-book publisher Hodder & Stoughton, identical to the British edition except for the publisher's imprint. Dulac was only 25 years old when he was given the opportunity to illustrated an edition of the ARABIAN NIGHTS for the gift market. It was Dulac's first collaboration with Hodder & Stoughton; the book's robust sales led to a long partnership with the publisher to create an annual illustrated versions of classic titles for the holiday season. Thus this book can be said to have launched Dulac's career as one of the most respected artists of the Golden Age of Illustration. The frontispiece illustration of Scheherazade is especially striking. A nice copy of an increasingly scarce book.

Milton, John
Hammersmith: The Doves Press, 1907. Fine.. The justly revered Doves Press edition of Milton's essay on freedom of the press. Milton's protest against Parliament's re-establishment of press censorship during the English Civil War has become legendary, with the most celebrated line of AREOPAGITICA commemorated over the entrance of the New York Public Library's Main Reading Room: "a good Booke is the pretious life-blood of a master spirit, imbalm'd & treasur'd up on purpose to a life beyond life." Edward Johnston, the designer best remembered today for the London Underground typeface and logo, was called upon by Cobden-Sanderson for a special project in this edition. Johnston created a calligraphic heading to open the essay so that the art of the book harmonized with tone of Milton's transcendental lines. The result is an unforgettable page in a work that deserves never to be forgotten.

L'Edition d'art H. Piazza et Cie. 4 Rue Jacob, Paris, 1907. Contemporary three-quarter red morocco over cockerel boards, rules in gilt. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Cockerel endpapers.

Minimal rubbing to joints, otherwise a Near Fine copy. Originally published as Stories From the Arabian Nights (1907). Here translated into French from the original Arabic by Hadji-Mazem. The Leicester Galleries commissioned from Dulac the fifty water colours, retaining the copyrights, and, with Hodder and Stoughton, brought out the book. It was an overnight sensation that unequivocally established Dulac's reputation. "The Arabian Nights illustrations caught the attention of all the contemporary reviewers. The October Bookman published Dulac's portrait with the prophetic caption: 'those fifty colour illustrations for The Arabian Nights will soon be the talk of the literary and artistic community'.Recognition also came from Black & White magazine.'A new illustrator has arisen, and of the strength and originality of his work there can be no two opinions'.The London Times followed. : 'Mr. Dulac's distinction is that he is as good on the poetical side as on the grotesque.he has a truly exquisite sense of colour, and of noble design.'" (Hughey). At the time, Edmond Dulac was only twenty-five years old. [Attributes: First Edition]

Ruskin, John
Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1907. Vellum Binding. Very Good binding. Small quarto. xiv, 122 pp. Limited Edition, one of 300 copies on paper, another 12 copies were printed on vellum. As issued, in limp parchment, titled in gold on the spine and stamp-signed by the Doves Bindery on the lower turn-in of the back cover. Covers are a trifle splayed as is common; now housed in a custom slipcase trimmed in green morocco at the opening and covered in a striking Cockerell marbled paper. This is a very nice copy with minimal mellowing to the parchment. Some small, faint spots of toning at the top and bottom corner of both front and rear free endpaper, fairly minor; otherwise, the contents are clean. Beautifully printed in black in the Doves type with occasional words and lines in Macmillan Greek. While this volume was published in 1907, it was printed much earlier and there is some uncertainty whether this is the first use of the Greek type in a Doves Press book or if it was preceded by its use in the first volume of the English Bible. Regardless, this is an exceptional edition of Ruskin's essays. Tidcombe DP 11.

Cette suite très libre par Paul Avril a servi a illustrer l'édition des Mémoires de Fanny Hill par John Cleland publiée à Paris en 1906 ou 1907. D'après les différentes sources que nous avons pu consulter, il apparaît que cette suite a été livrée séparément de l'édition du texte. Le nombre de gravures semble bien être de 12 contrairement à 15 comme l'indique Dutel. On doit à Paul Avril les plus belles suites érotiques du début du XXe siècle. Celle-ci est particulièrement réussie. Très belle suite parfaitement conservée. Photographies non censurées sur demande / Pics on request. [Attributes: First Edition]

John Ruskin
Doves Press, 1907. UNTO THIS LAST Ruskin, John. UNTO THIS LAST: Four Essays on the First Principles of Political Economy Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1907 Limited Edition, one of 300 copies | bound in limp parchment at the Doves Bindery Bibliographic Details: Publisher: Doves Press Publication Place: Hammersmith Publication Date: 1907 Binding: Limp Vellum Book Condition: Very Good binding Edition: Limited Edition, one of 300 copies Reference: Tidcombe DP 11 Description: Small quarto. xiv, 122 pp. Limited Edition, one of 300 copies on paper, another 12 copies were printed on vellum. As issued, in limp parchment, titled in gold on the spine and stamp-signed by the Doves Bindery on the lower turn-in of the back cover. Covers are a trifle splayed as is common; now housed in a custom slipcase trimmed in green morocco at the opening and covered in a striking Cockerell marbled paper. This is a very nice copy with minimal mellowing to the parchment. Some small, faint spots of toning at the top and bottom corner of both front and rear free endpaper, fairly minor; otherwise, the contents are clean. Beautifully printed in black in the Doves type with occasional words and lines in Macmillan Greek. While this volume was published in 1907, it was printed much earlier and there is some uncertainty whether this is the first use of the Greek type in a Doves Press book or if it was preceded by its use in the first volume of the English Bible. Regardless, this is an exceptional edition of Ruskin's essays. Book ID: 5489 Visit my other listings by clicking here Note: I try to be as accurate as pos … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rimsky-Korsakow, Nikolai, Komponist (1844-1908).
St. Petersburg, 3/16. X. 1907, 8°. 2 1/2 Seiten. Doppelblatt. An den Dirigenten Albert Carré (1852-1938) in Paris. Carré leitete die erste Aufführung der französischen Bearbeitung der Oper Snegurotschka (Schneewittchen) unter dem Titel "Fleur de neige" in der Opéra-Comique de Paris im Jahr 1908: "J'ai parlé avec le Directeur des Théâtres Impériaux - Monsieur Téliakovski, duquel j'ai appris qu'il n'y a à St. Pétersbourg que les dessins des costumes pour Snégourotchka, et à Moscou, que les photographies des décors - il n'y a ni maquettes ni esquisses des décors. Tandis que le talentueux peintre Mr. Constantin Korovine [.] est prêt à executer pour vous les esquisses des décors et des costumes, comme me l'a dit Mr. Téliakovski, pour un prix très modique. Mais en ce cas il est indispensable de monter Snégourotchka un peu plus tard, car Mr. Korovine ne pourrait finir ce travail avant Décembre ou Janvier. Si, définitivement, cela vous est incommode, vous pourriez commander à la Direction des Théâtres Impériaux les copies des dessins de costumes et des photographies des décors, ce qui coûtera 50 à 75 roubles. A mon avis le mieux de tout serait de s'adresser à Mr. Korovine [.] Snégourotchka sera donnée à Moscou en Novembre ou Décembre, je ne manquerai pas de vous informer à temps, lorsque la date de la représentation sera fixée au juste [.]" - Konstantin Korowin (1861-1939) war ein bedeutender impressionistischer Maler und Bühnenbildner.

India, 1907. Oblong folio measuring 15" x 10.5". Cream colored stiff boards. Contains 65 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.5" x 2" and 9.5" x 11" with captions. Heavily foxed with tears and chipped corners thus good only with very good photographs with some fading, tears, and abrasions. A photo album kept by a group of British expatriates in India in 1904. Beginning with a Christmas picnic in Muzaffarpur in 1904 the group is pictured wearing pith helmets and lounging on fallen tree branches and enjoying a Christmas feast spread out on a blanket. The picnic was held under the famous Lychee trees of the city. Various candids and snapshots are scattered throughout the album featuring family pets, children playing, and people posing in gardens. One section of photos from 1905 shows the Sonepore Race Meet featuring photos of the Commissioner's Camp, polo ground, and the animals themselves. Beginning in the 1800s the British Raj used Sonepur as the location of an annual race in November. This time had traditionally been used as an animal trade fair by the Hindu locals and some of those customs continued through the transition from fair to race. Landowners in the area set up large carpeted tents for lounging as well as accompanying sleeping and bathing tents for the elite visitors who came to see the anticipated event. For the British population it was a huge social event which not only involved horse races and polo matches but dinners and dancing. The ballroom that was set up for the 1905 event can be seen beyond the polo ground includi … [Click Below for Full Description]

KAMIENSKI, ANTON.
[Warsaw, B. Wierzbicki] for Tygodnik illustrowany, 1907. FIRST EDITION. Folio, 10 mounted reproductions of drawings, printed in sepia, with printed captions on brown mounting boards; well preserved in the original publisher's wrappers printed in red and sepia; wrappers loose and with frayed margins. Very rare gripping pictorial documentation of the 1905 revolution in Warsaw and the cruel reaction thereafter. This first printing of Revolutionary Spirit. Sketches of the past years 1905-1907 was given free to long-standing subscribers of the illustrated weekly paper Tygodnik illustrowany to celebrate its 50th anniversary in December 1907. The illustrations had appeared earlier in various issues of this liberal periodical. Anton Kamienski (1860-1933) was the artistic eyewitness of the revolution in Warsaw, and this work defined the Polish proletarian iconography up to the Second World War. Single prints were hung onto walls of political assembly rooms, bars, and homes of socialists, sometimes mounted on, or decorated with, ribbons of red paper. Generations of Polish working class children grew up with Kamienski's imagery, which accounts for the extreme rarity of a complete album. Offered together with the complete issue 2510 of the Tygodnik illustrowany (December 14, 1907), which contains the illustrated announcement for this publication on page 1023.

Rare folio containing hundreds of vintage postcards, most postdated between 1907 and 1917. From the collection of Ellen Warren. Folio, original cloth decorated in gilt with raised vignettes to the front panel depicting a snowy landscape and caribou bust, patterned endpapers, containing hundreds of postcards including many Christmas, New Year's and Easter postcards, family photograph postcards, and views from Santa Catalina, New York City, Lake Merrit, Royal Gorge, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. In very good condition. A charming collection offering years of intimate insight into the collector's life. The period from 1870 to 1874 saw a great number of countries begin the issuance of postcards. The first known printed picture postcard, with an image on one side, was created in France in 1870 and private advertising cards started appearing in the United States around 1873, and qualified for a special postage rate of one cent. The backs of these private cards contained the words "Correspondence Card", "Mail Card" or "Souvenir Card" and required two-cent postage if they were written upon. [Attributes: First Edition]

Zinov'eva-Annibal, L.
Saint Petersburg: Ory, 1907. 96, [8] pp. 13,5x10 cm. In original two-color printed wrappers with publisher's vignette (doubled on t.p.) designed by Mstislav Dobuzhinsky. Near fine. Second edition printed the same year. Rare. First Russian novel that openly discussed lesbianism. It was created by female poet and writer Lydia Zinovieva-Annibal (1866-1907) who was close enough to Narodniks, she was full of revolutionary ideas. Together with her second spouse, poet Vyacheslav Ivanov, she hosted symbolist meetings ('On the Tower', called because the meetings were held on the tower) and sponsored their small-run publishing house 'Ory' printing symbolist works. The novel was written in late 1906, but the censorship saw "the signs of a crime" (promotion of depriving behavior) and decided to forbid the book. The print run was arrested for a few months. By this time, the first Russian gay novel had already printed. Kuzmin's 'Wings' (1906) filled up the whole issue of 'Vesy'. The main periodicals of symbolists were 'Vesy' and 'La Toison d'or'. Zinovieva-Annibal noticed: "Yesterday I wrote a story 'Thirty-three Abominations'. This is my torment expressed in a very strange way. It was conceived a long time ago. As I argued with 'Vesy' and I am in a bad relationship with 'La Toison d'or', there is no place to put such a story. It is awful". The first reading of Zinovieva-Annibal's novel was held at 'On the Tower' meeting and caused a scandal. Both works were discussed as examples of erotic fiction of the early 20th century and were closely connected with the aesthetics of the Silver age. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll (aka Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) (1907) 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', UK limited edition, illustrated by Arthur Rackham, published by Heinemann. One of only 1,130 copies of which this is no. 1,033. Condition: a very good copy. No previous owners' scribbles, no stamps, no bookplates. All 13 plates are present with their corresponding tissue guards. The boards are lighyly toned with two smudges at the botoom front board and one black stain at the bottom edge of the front board as shown. Top page block is gilded as called for. The spine is browned. Inside, the pages have slight signs of ageing. Typical ghosting to the endpapers as common. Very good overall. We have seen cleaner copies, but also copies where the plates have been taken out for framing. This specimen is complete. Fair value. Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was the pre-eminent representative of the 'Golden Age of Illustration' in the UK. He illustrated classics like Peter Pan, The Wind in the Willows, Peer Gynt and others, all of which are classics and served as role models on our contemporary illustrators such as Alan Lee. Charles van Sandwyk was obviously inspired by Rackham for his recently illustrated 'Alice' edition of the Folio Society.
