        Voyage en France par un Français. Publié d'après le Manuscrit inédit. Préface de Louis Loviot.

      Paris, Léon Vanier, A. Messein successeur, 1907 ; in-12 ; demi-maroquin à coins grenat, dos à nerfs, titre doré, tête dorée sur témoins, couverture et dos conservés, non rogné (Canape) ; (1) f. blanc, 137 pp. (1 bl.), (1) f. de table, (1) f. blanc, couverture jaune imprimée. EDITION ORIGINALE POSTHUME de ce texte curieux, dont Louis Loviot nous conte l'histoire un peu rocambolesque dans sa préface. La première partie est une critique acerbe de la Révolution, de Napoléon et de ses successeurs, de la démocratie et du républicanisme, de la fausse chrétienté, rien ne trouve grâce à ses yeux ; dans la seconde partie, Verlaine se livre à une critique littéraire sur le plan religieux, Zola, Flaubert, Goncourt, Daudet, Vallès, etc. se font joyeusement étriller. Très bel exemplaire, dans une élégante reliure fort bien établie.

        The White Feather

      A C Black 1907 - A rarity and I am not aware of another copy in public or private hands .A mint copy with inscription dated 1907 . The front and rear panels with flaps of the wrapper came off a trial binding where I suspect the publisher experimented with laying the wrapper over the boards to save the cost of illustrating ,but they did illustrate the spine. A small team of us led by Mark Terry recreated the wrappers of all the early Blacks based on originals that myself and others had . What we didn't know was the colour and texture of the paper of this title until this item turned up .Richard Reeve was able to match the paper and work to our recreation. We really had no idea how it would turn out but its brilliant .All the original wrappers of the same period have BLACK not A C BACK so we have remained consistent. We cannot be 100% certain that the spine is right but the process we have followed is consistent with what we know ,so this is the best we have unless a copy turns up , Its also an unknown with the infills of the illustrations on the spine but the publishers seemed to accept black and white but left colours which may have been cost related. A full wrapper may still yet turn up but I'm not holding my breath [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      G. B. Monauni, Trento. 1907 - Usualmente l’opera nella tiratura ordinaria presenta, oltre a numerose figure nel testo, solamente due tavole fuori testo delle uova del Cuculo. Il nostro esemplare, appartenente alla tiratura illustrata, presenta oltre alle due citate tavole di uova di cuculo anche 32 tavole litografate a colori fuori testo rappresentanti i volatili trentini descritti nel libro e numerate romane da I a XXXII per un totole complessivo di 34 tavole (A CBT è presente un’unica copia di questa tiratura posseduta dalla biblioteca comunale di Trento ma con 33 tavole in luogo di 34). La qualità e la finezza di esecuzione e di stampa, su carta pesante, è eccellente. Al piede di ciascuna tavola è stampata l’indicazione G. Marchi e le tavole sono monogrammate G. B. e rappresentano 109 specie di uccelli. Questa edizione illustrata è sconosciuta a qualsiasi riferimento bibliografico (che cita solo quella con due tavole) e con molta probabilità si tratta di un esemplare di una tiratura limitata realizzata dall’autore per un numero ristretto di persone. Formato: [14], 116, [1] p., [34] c. di tav. in cromolitografia, 21 cm, tela editoriale con titoli oro. Ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo, nastro di rinforzo alla legatura.

        Autograph musical quotation signed "Umberto Giordano."

      Marcella, first performed at the Teatro Lirico in Milan on November 9, 1907 to a libretto by L. Stecchetti, H. Cain, and J. Adenis, is "a story of love and renunciation across the class barrier... Giordano handled the late Romantic, emotionally vehement idiom of the giovane scuola with ease and fluency, being particularly skilful in weaving into his scores elements of local and historical colour... His stage sense is always sure, and his vocal writing unfailingly effective." Julien Budden in Grove Music Online.. 1 page of a bifolium (ca. 136 x 179 mm). Dated Milano, January 26, 1909. In black ink. Three measures from Scene V of the Second Episode of Giordano's opera Marcella. Notated in treble clef on one hand-drawn staff. In 4/4 time. With text "Vedi anch'io l'amor conosco" underlaid. Minor browning, heavier to blank final page; creased at folds, with three short tears, and remnants of adhesive, not affecting quotation.

        Roode-Kruishond en Oorlogshond. [Rode Kruis Hond].

      's-Gravenhage, “Luctor et Emergo”, 1907.. Crown quarto. Pp. 61, (2). Illustrated with many photographs, plates, drawings. Hardcover, bound in the original publisher's green limp cloth, plate mounted on cover, a lovely drawing of a rescue dog in action, white lettering, decorative endpapers, old small shelf ticket, old institutional stamp to bottom of title-page. In about fine condition. Excellent copy. ~ First edition. Jhr. Carel Adriaan Jan Meijer, (1864-1927) began his military career as a corporal and became Major in 1916. He was active as military dog trainer and in 1909 established the Dutch Association for Red Cross Dogs (dissolved in 1967). In the First World War he led Red Cross rescue dogs in the battlefield of Argonne. For his life time service he received several awards, including the Insigne de Mérite de la Croix Rouge de Belgique. The book is in practice a blueprint for the establishment of the Dutch Association. Meijer brings firsthand testimonies from other European associations with whom he has been in contact for the preparation of his plan. He talks about history of the war dog, experience in the German, Italian, and Russian armies, etc. He discusses principles of dog education, training, and exercise; the well-being of the dog, accommodation, equipment, etc. He also includes the annual report for 1903 of the Deutscher Verein für Sanituatshunde, and finally brings in detail the Breed Standard of the Nederlandsche Herdershonden. The book ends with a double-page list of the dead, wounded or missed in action dogs in the main battlefields of the 19th Century. Extremely rare landmark in the history of European Red Cross rescue and war dog. OCLC locates only single copy worldwide outside the Netherlands (3 copies), that in US Army Heritage & Education Center.

        Landh?user [Gebundene Ausgabe] Hermann Muthesius (Autor)

      Mann (Gebr.), Berlin, 1907. Das architektonische Werk von Hermann Muthesius, der 1907 zu den Mitbegr?ndern des Deutschen Werkbundes geh?rte, hat in den letzten Jahren immer mehr an Bedeutung gewonnen. Seine Landh?user sind mit ihren wohlgeordneten G?rten Inseln der Ruhe und Geborgenheit. Hohe Kamine, weit heruntergezogene D?cher, tief in den Laibungen sitzende Fenster bestimmen den unverwechselbaren Charakter dieser Geb?ude. Muthesius hat nicht die englischen Formen nachgeahmt, sondern seinen H?usern die Art zu wohnen, das Flair des ?u?eren gegeben, wie es in England ?blich war. Merkmale, die diesen H?usern noch heute eigen sind und sie zu etwas ganz Besonderem machen, wie es in der Architektur nur ganz vereinzelt zu finden ist. Die Wiederauflage der ?Landh?user? bietet die M?glichkeit, sie in Ruhe betrachten zu k?nnen, die noch bestehenden zu besichtigen, sich ein Bild von ihrem speziellen Charme zu machen und dazu Muthesius? eigene Kommentare zu lesen. Autor: Hermann Muthesius (1861?1927) war Architekt und Architekturschriftsteller. Als Attach? der Deutschen Botschaft in London (1896?1903) hatte er Gelegenheit, sich mit dem Wesen der englischen Wohnkultur vertraut zu machen. Muthesius geh?rte zu den Gr?ndern des Deutschen Werkbundes und errichtete f?r dessen Ausstellung 1914 in K?ln die Halle der Farbenschau. Bedeutend sind seine Landhausbauten.

        THE SECRET AGENT

      1907. [a handsome copy] A Simple Tale. London: Methuen & Co., (1907). 40 pp ads dated Sept 1907. Original deep red cloth with gilt-decorated spine. First Edition of this tale of espionage sited in Russia. The idea for the story came from an actual 1890s revolutionary attempt to blow up the Observatory at Greenwich. Conrad initially planned this to be a short story (titled "Verloc"); however, as he "got into" it, he lengthened it into a full-blown novel. He then strove to make it a popular novel, one that would provide him with the cash he needed to get out from under pressing debts; however, after an initial flourish, sales dropped off and the book was not reprinted until 1914, after the success of CHANCE reawakened interest in Conrad. ~The initial printing consisted of 2,500 copies, including 500 for the colonies and 500 for Canada. However, the good initial reception of the book prompted the publisher to use the colonial copies for the domestic market instead, replacing the colonial half-title and title with the standard domestic one -- "there is no visible evidence of cancellation and for all practical purposes we must regard these copies as indistinguishable from the regular domestic issue" [Cagle].~This is an attractive, near-fine copy (spine very slightly faded but less than usual, a few trivial marks on the endpapers); the original endpapers show no cracking, and there is none of the often-pervasive foxing. In our experience LORD JIM, YOUTH and THE SECRET AGENT are the toughest of Conrad's first published editions to find in collectible condition. Cagle A12a(1); a "Modern Library 100" selection and a "Connolly 100 Key Books of the Modern Movement" selection.

Original vellum, titles and pictorial decoration to spine and cover gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, dark green pictorial endpapers.

It was originally published in 1898 (for which there was no deluxe signed edition) but for 1907 was revised and largely redrawn, 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).

        [THE CHINESE EASTERN RAILWAY COMPANY] Kharbin i O-vo K.V.Gh.d.: (K voprosu o vzaimnyh otnosheniyah O-va Kitaiskoi zheleznoi dorogi i naseleniya goroda Kharbina) [i.e. Harbin and The Chinese Eastern Railway Company: (On relationships between The Chinese Eastern Railway Company and Kharbin's population)]

      Harbin: Tov. gazetnykh rabotnikov Elektro-par. tip.-lit. T-va Bergut i Syn, 1907. 14 pp. 8vo. Original printed wrappers. Clean copy with slightly tanned wrappers. Tears to the wrappers, a piece of the end cover is missing, very fragile edges. A good copy. A rare, perhaps unique work focusing on relationships between The Chinese Eastern Railway Company and Harbin's population. This is the history of the emergence of Russians in the north of China, associated with the construction and operation of the Chinese Eastern Railway. It is owing to the CER that the Russian city of Harbin was established in the late 19th century to house those who built and maintained the Railway, the construction of which began in 1897. In 1900, the Russian Empire (together with other countries) participated in suppressing the Boxer Rebellion and took advantage of the opportunity this afforded to occupy the north-eastern province of Dai Qing-Guo, thereby accruing additional benefits by their presence in the region. Later the Chinese and Russian governments held unsuccessful negotiations to settle the dispute, leading in 1903 to the creation of the Far East Viceroyalty to bring the matter to a conclusion. Russia's defeat in the war with Japan had an impact on the future prospects of the CER. According to the Treaty of Portsmouth (1905) a large part of the southern branch of the CER, which had fallen to the Japanese, was officially transferred to Japan. This put an end to the Russian government's plans to use the Railway to trade in the markets of the Asia-Pacific region. This book narrates what became of the people and state in Harbin after 1907, in light of the Chinese Eastern Railway and the Treaty of Portsmouth. It examines with plentiful examples the position of Russian citizens in China, the rights and duties of the Chinese Eastern Railway Company and its legal footing, its critics, and other legal matters.

        [STALIN'S FIRST APPEARANCE AS ONE OF BOLSHEVIK LEADERS] Protokoly Obyedinitel'nogo syezda Rossiyskoy Sotsial'demokraticheskoy Rabochey Partii, sostoyavshegosya v Stokgolme [i.e. The Protocols of the Unity Congress of Russian Social-Democratic Party in Stockholm in 1906]

      Moscow: K.Ivanov, 1907. [2], VI, 420 pp. 22,5x14,5 cm. Original printed wrapper. Uncut. Very good. Extremely rare. The book contains the full version of all speeches on the fourth congress of Social Democrats that happened in Stockholm in 1906. That congress was the important point in Stalin's life - he was chosen to be one of the three delegates from Caucasus. It was slightly unexpected because before 1906 he was mostly in charge of the terrorist activity and have not published any articles or theoretical works unlike Lenin and other important party members. The book has the list of all the delegates - Stalin is listed under the pseudonym Ivanovich. It is possibly the first time he is mentioned in print. The debates at the congress were concentrated around the agrarian question (what would happened with the land after the revolution) - Lenin was leading the most radical position based on nationalizing the land and was defeated by much more moderate Mensheviks. Later when the party split up that was named as one of the reason. It's known that Stalin didn't take Lenin's side on that matter and was in favor of compromising strategy proposed by Borisov. The book was printed in St. Petersburg in 1907. Soon it was banned by the order of court (see 'Index of banned books' (Alfavitnyi ukazatel' knig na kotorye nalozhen arest). SPb., 1907, p. 35). It was also dangerous to possess such book in USSR as this congress was one of Bolsheviks' weaker moments.

        [Photo Album]: New England Women, Including Librarians

      Massachusetts. 1907-1916. Oblong octavo. Measuring 5.5" x 7". Textured leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains a total of 151 images (90 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs and 61 cyanotype prints), measuring between 1" x 1" and 3.5" x 4.5". Rubbing on the boards else very good with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by Florence. M. Osborne from Wellesley, Massachusetts between 1907 and 1916. The album documents home life as well as travel throughout the area and including Canada. A sizable number of the early photos are cyanotypes that depict the natural beauties of New England such as ponds, beaches, and gardens, as well as landmarks and town buildings. There are 24 photos from a trip to Quebec showing horse drawn carriages, cobblestone roads, artistic street views, and photos of Montmorency Falls. A trip to Quincy, Massachusetts shows photos of the monument to Abigail Adams Cairn, as well as Penn's Hill and a water tower. A section of the album entitled "autumn" shows portraits of the family posing around the house in fancy dress, including a photo of Osborne dressed in a large, fashionable hat. There are also photos of various rooms in the Wellesley Free Library, which was of interest to the Osborne family, notable Florence's father Weston W. Osborne who was a contributor to the library's acquisition funds. The album switches to sepia tone and black and white photos around 1909 starting with a hike up Point Allerton Hill. The album continues with visits to more New England points of interest including Nahant, where they photographed Senator Lodge's house. Two photos of a group of young women are captioned, "Junior members of Lynn Public library staff," and are accompanied by two slips of paper listing each woman's name. The album goes on to show the library's reading room and the stairway to the main floor. The final 30 photos are laid in (likely to be mounted and captioned at a later time) and show women around the house, decorated Christmas tables, and with family pets.An interesting accumulation of images depicting Wellesley, Massachusetts and the surround area with a generous selection of cyanotypes. .
