This a lovely copy, in the original full vellum binding, with the original yellow silk ties. The "stories from the Arabian Nights is Dulac's most important book. It was an overnight sensation that unequivocally established Dulac's reputation. The illustrations have been issued over the years in countless book editions in many languages. Contemporary reviews such as that from The Outlook, praised this work, writing that 'fanciful imagination, humour, and sheer beauty... with excellencies of design and colour will make the book one of the most prized.' The New York Times heralded the pictures as 'indescribably quaint and bewitching.' As a boy in Toulouse, Dulac was greatly impressed by his uncle's fine collection of Far Eastern Art, and it was said to have served him as inspiration all his life" (quotes from Hughey).___DESCRIPTION: Original white vellum, stamped to upper board and backstrip with gilt mock Arabic lettering and smoking brazier design, interspersed with bits of royal blue; dark grey-green endpapers, fore- and tail-edges untrimmed, top-edge gilt, title page printed in black and orange with vignette of "seated Arab," 50 color plates mounted on dark grey-green art paper with captioned tissue guards, except for the frontispiece all plates are bound in together at the back of the volume, original yellow silk closing ties; large quarto size (11.75" by 9"), [i-v] vi-xvi, 1-133 [1 half-title] pp., first edition, limited edition, in the original vellum binding, signed by Edmund Dulac.___CONDITION: Near fine, the vellum is bright with minimal rubbing at edges and only slightly turned at one corner, a strong square text block with solid hinges, internally bright and clean, all plates present/complete, and free of prior owner markings; very minimal foxing to outer edges, some occasional creases and minor chips to some of the tissue guards; this copy is near fine, uncommon with the original silk ties. Some restoration work was done by a professional conservator to strengthen the joints, the work is not visible, and overall increased the shelf appeal and dependability of this fine volume.___CITATION: Hughey 16.___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

      New York: Engineer's Club, 1907 Signed by Mark Twain, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie (who has signed twice), and others. This event commemorated the opening of the Engineers Club's fabulous new home at 32 West 40th Street on Bryant Park in New York. Opening with oysters and closing with petits fours, this gathering of American industrialists was entertained by Samuel Clemens, which has signed the volume as Mark Twain. The author's friend Andrew Carnegie paid for the club, and Twain roasted him gently, stating in part, "just look at Mr. Carnegie's face. It is all scintillating with fictitious innocence. You might think that he had never committed a crime." The elegant volume, engraved by Tuffany & Co., is illustrated with a portrait of Carnegie, a view of the building, and images of the previous two club houses. It is accompanied by Swasey's original engraved invitation and printed list of attending members and dinner seating. Laid in are newspaper accounts of the event. Very rare. We have not seen another example. Provenance: Ambrose Swasey, the Cleveland mechanical engineer, industrialist, and philanthropist. Original Scottish tartan silk, gilt stamped. Engraved by Tiffany & Co., New York. Rebacked in black cloth. 8 leaves and 23 pp list of members, menu, and seating plans. Very good condition. Half morocco case.

        Photo Album]: British in India 1904-1907

      India 1907 - Oblong folio measuring 10.5" x 15". 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 including well-dressed British women meeting with riders and their horses, and images of the encampment.The group went into what is now present day Pakistan on a few occasions. Some photos show a tented encampment at the Khyber Pass and the rice mills of the area. One image of a British man on a horse in captioned, "surveying Khyber," and is accompanied by a photo of a group of turbaned Indian men. Two large photos show the chaos of Bannu City on market day with enormous crowds of people. In Bannu they took photos of the fort, a British church, and the people of the city. A photo from Darjeeling in 1906 shows a wedding party posing for a large group photograph.An interesting look at the British upper class in India during the early 1900s.

        The Spirit of the People.

      London: Alston Rivers, Ltd,, 1907. An Analysis of the English Mind. Octavo. Original red cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt with gilt-stamped decoration, top edge gilt. Spine slightly faded, contents lightly foxed. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "Mr. and Mrs. Marwood always aff[ectionate]ly from Ford M. H. October 28th MCMVII". Arthur Marwood (1868–1916), the recipient, was a close friend of Ford's: "after Madox Brown, Conrad, and James, he was to become the most important man in Ford's life and in his writing" (Saunders, p. 209). The two met in 1905, when they became neighbours — Marwood had moved to Winchelsea, seeking a milder climate for his tuberculosis. "In Marwood, Ford discovered a new species of Englishman: the 'real Englishman' par excellence — for certain purposes, the 'real' Englishman" (Meixner, p. 200). Indeed, Ford might well have been thinking of Marwood when he penned the dedication of this title, "To the most English of all". When Marwood died from tuberculosis in 1916, his death impressed Ford "more profoundly than any since those of his father and grandfather" (Saunders vol. II, p. 5). Ford wrote of him in Thus to Revisit (1921): "he had the deepest and widest intelligence of all the men I ever met". The character of Christopher Tietjens, the protagonist of Ford's war tetralogy (1924–1928), was partly a tribute to Marwood, "from whom he took Tietjens's grand Yorkshire background, mathematical skills and habit of 'tabulating from memory the errors in the Encyclopaedia Britannica'" (LRB, Vol. 34, No. 19). From the collection of Thomas Moser, Professor of English at Stanford University, though unmarked as such; he published a psychological biography of Ford Madox Ford in 1980.

        The Ingoldsby Legends.

      London: J. M. Dent and Company, , 1907. Or Mirth and Marvels. Large octavo (252 x 200 mm). Contemporary art nouveau-style "vellucent" binding by Cedric Chivers of Bath in green morocco, spine and front cover lettered and tooled in gilt, hand-painted vellum vignette of Franciscan monk and crow to front cover, turn-ins ruled in gilt, green marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Colour frontispiece and 23 colour plates tipped-in on dark green paper, 12 tinted plates on plain paper, illustrations in the text. Spine and edges of covers faded to brown, rubbing to joints, 50 mm tear to pp. 477/8, some pages unopened. An excellent copy. First revised edition, first impression, of Rackham's illustrated edition of The Ingoldsby Legends, containing drawings not found in earlier editions. This copy is a beautiful example of Chivers's vellucent technique, which he developed in the early 1900s. In contrast to the earlier method used by Edwards of Halifax, the painting was not done on the underside of the transparent vellum, but on paper which was attached to the binding and covered with vellum. The surface of the vellum was then tooled in gold, thus enhancing the impressive effect. Rackham's illustrated edition of The Ingoldsby Legends was originally published in 1898 but Rackham chose to expand the work and redraw the illustrations so that "greater prominence could be given to the illustrations by better and larger reproductions, including a greater number of illustrations in colour" (Rackham's Prefatory Note).

        Über die Versuche mit Bildtelegraphie zwischen München und Berlin vom 15. April bis 15. mai 1907. Offprint

      1907. Korn, Arthur (1870-1945). Über die Versuche mit Bildtelegraphie zwischen München und Berlin vom 15. April bis 15. mai 1907. Offprint from Elektrotechnischen Zeitschrift 33 (1907). 4pp. Text illustrations. 270 x 192 mm. Original printed wrappers. Lightly creased but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed on the front wrapper: "Überricht vom Verfasser." From the library of physicist Henri Becquerel (1852-1908), with his characteristic gummed docketing label on the front wrapper. First Edition, Offprint Issue. Korn invented telephotography, the first practical method of scanning and transmitting images over electrical wires. His system used a light-sensitive selenium photocell to convert the different tones of an image into a varying electrical current; at the receiving end the transmitted image was reconstituted and recorded on photographic film. Korn invented his device in 1902, but his first machines were impractical as they took as long as 12 hours to transmit images. By 1907, the year he published the present paper, Korn had improved his machines to the point where they could transmit a 13 x 18 cm. photograph in 12 minutes; some of these images and their transmission times are included in this paper. In April 1907 Korn's equipment was put into regular service for transmission of newspaper photographs between Munich and Berlin via telegraph circuits.

        [Photo Album]: British in India 1904-1907

      India, 1907. Very Good. Oblong folio measuring 10.5" x 15". 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 including well-dressed British women meeting with riders and their horses, and images of the encampment.The group went into what is now present day Pakistan on a few occasions. Some photos show a tented encampment at the Khyber Pass and the rice mills of the area. One image of a British man on a horse in captioned, "surveying Khyber," and is accompanied by a photo of a group of turbaned Indian men. Two large photos show the chaos of Bannu City on market day with enormous crowds of people. In Bannu they took photos of the fort, a British church, and the people of the city. A photo from Darjeeling in 1906 shows a wedding party posing for a large group photograph.An interesting look at the British upper class in India during the early 1900s.

Some of the featured birds included the American Eagle, Ptarmigan, Scarlet Tanager, and Peacock [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hugo Charlemont - Seis am Schlern (signiert und datiert 1907)

      Aquarelle von Hugo Charlemont - Seis am Schlern 1907, signiert und datiert, ohne Rahmen, Format 39,5 x 27,5 cm. - Dieses Exemplar stammt aus dem Vorlass eines Botschafters i. R., aus dem Familienbesitz. - Bankverbindungen in Österreich und Deutschland. --- Hugo Charlemont (1850 in Jamnitz, Mähren - 1939 in Wien) war ein österreichischer Maler. - Hugo Charlemont entstammte einer Künstlerfamilie. Er war der Sohn des Miniaturmalers Matthias Adolf Charlemont und der Bruder der Maler Eduard Charlemont (1848 - 1906) und Theodor Charlemont (1859 - 1938). Auch Hugos Tochter Lilly Charlemont (1890 - 1975) war Künstlerin. - Er studierte ab 1873 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste und war Schüler von Eduard von Lichtenfels. Bei Arthur William Unger erlernte er Drucktechnik und die Kunst der Radierung. Später bildete er sich bei seinem Bruder Eduard und bei Hans Makart künstlerisch weiter. Charlemont machte einige Studienreisen in die Niederlande und hielt sich mehrere Jahre in Venedig auf. Hugo Charlemont ist das Vorbild des Malers van Helmond in Robert Musils Roman Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften. Alice Charlemont, die ältere Tochter Hugo Charlemonts, kehrt im Roman als Clarisse wieder. -- Bei seinen Zeitgenossen galt Hugo Charlemont als vielseitiges Talent. Er widmete sich den verschiedensten Bildthemen, wie der Landschafts-, Stillleben-, Tier-, Genre- oder Porträtmalerei. Neben Ölbildern schuf er auch zahlreiche Aquarelle und Gouachen. Am bemerkenswertesten erscheinen seine Landschaften, die in einem impressionistischen Stil gehalten sind. Von den Neuerungen der Modernen Kunst ließ sich Charlemont allerdings nicht beeindrucken er blieb auch im 20. Jahrhundert seinem Stil treu. - Er ruht in einem ehrenhalber gewidmeten Grab auf dem Döblinger Friedhof (Gruppe 23, Reihe 12, Nummer 13) in Wien.
