        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.

This is the first signed limited edition of Rackham's illustrated edition of Barham's Ingoldsby Legends. 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.

Rudyard Kipling, a good friend of Fitzpatrick, also took part in these story-telling evenings and eventually persuaded him to collect these tales in book form.

        [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. .

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      London: William Heinemann, 1907. - Alice's Adventures in WonderlandIllustrated by Arthur Rackham[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. CARROLL, Lewis. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. London: William Heinemann, [n.d., 1907]. First English Edition DeLuxe. Limited to 1,130 numbered copies (this copy being # 767).Large quarto (11 1/16 x 9 inches; 280 x 229 mm.). xii, 161, [1]. Thirteen tipped-in full-page color plates mounted on heavy brown paper, with lettered tissue-guards. Fourteen black and white drawings.Publisher's white buckram over boards, front cover and spine pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt, pictorial end papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. Spine very slightly darkened, some offsetting from paste-downs to free end-papers as usual, small neat ink inscription on half-title. A near fine copy."Rackham's next undertaking after Peter Pan was the most controversial of his whole career. This was nothing less than a fresh illustration of Alice in Wonderland, a work so completely identified with the drawings by John Tenniel that it seemed to many critics almost blasphemous for anyone to attempt to prepare alternatives. As soon as it became clear, however, that a spate of new illustrated editions was being planned to follow the expiry of the original copyright (in fact, at least seven appeared in England in the first possible year, 1907), it was surely not to be regretted that an artist of Rackham's quality had taken up the challenge. Even The Times, in the course of an unfavourable review, recognized that Rackham 'feels his privilege and his responsibilities', but this critic, obsessed by Tenniel, found Rackham's humour 'forced and derivative' and discovered 'few signs of true imaginative instinct' in his work. A stranger wrote at once to sympathize: 'I felt I must express my indignation at the injustice of the "Times" criticism. However, I am certain that Time is on your side, and that nothing but prejudice prevents your superiority being recognised now. Your delightful Alice is alive and makes by contrast Tenniel's Alice look a stiff wooden puppet. This went much further than Rackham would have done, for he had no wish to set himself up against Tenniel. He would have been well content with the verdict of the Daily Telegraph, that it would be fortunate for Lewis Carroll's memory if his masterpiece encountered 'no less inspired interpreters than Mr Arthur Rackham'." (Derek Hudson, Arthur Rackham. His Life and Work. pp 70 and 72.)"The Alice. is not the heroine of Sir John Tenniel's imagination; she is older and more sophisticated; but at the same time she has a tender, flickering light of imagination in her eyes, which lifts her out of the domain of the merely pretty and childish. Mr. Rackham's inexhaustible imagination, working over and embroidering the ground-work of Tenniel's types, has added a really wonderful wealth of uncanny, dreamlike mystery to the story.[and] extraordinary feeling into the drawing of the hands" (Daily Telegraph).Latimore & Haskell, p. 29. Riall, p.77.

        Collection of American Aristocratic Family's Grand Hotel Invoices

      Germany, Netherlands, Great Britain, France, Italy, Switzerland, New York, and Washington, D.C., 1907. Printed handbills, in a range of sizes 21 x 13 to 34 x 22.5 cm. Texts in English, French, and German. Seventy Grand Hotel and restaurant invoices for various tours of Europe and Great Britain completed by Edward B. Livingston, Esq., Miss C.H. Livingston, and John L. Livingston, and family. From The Old England Lake House at Bowness-on-Windmere, on to The Royal Hotel in Edinburgh, the Livingstons traveled throughout the United Kingdom and onto the continent, finding accommodations at places like the Hôtel et Bains de la Cour de Zæhringen in Baden-Baden, Germany, the Grand Hôtel du Lac in Vevey, Switzerland, the Grand Magasins du Louvre in Paris, and Bellini's Hôtel Terminus in Milan. The collection includes a range of invoices from laundry bills to general hotel invoices; each is a printed template annotated with specific charges in a hand and many include affixed stamps indicating status of payment. Alone each invoice offers a glimpse into a comfortable quotidian existence through an itemized inventory of accommodations, luxury food items, maid services, carriages and excursions but together these documents trace the itinerary of multi-month travel tours and illuminate the charmed nature of an upper-class lifestyle. From the late 17th century to the early 19th century, the Livingston family was one of America's most aristocratic families, with acreage comparable to that of Rhode Island in the Hudson River Valley of New York. Members of the Livingston family are notable for a variety of roles in the early republic, including as the administrator of the oath of office to George Washington, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and early Supreme Court Justice. This collection provides a glimpse into the continued wealth and prosperity of the American aristocracy of the Livingston legacy. In a variety of conditions, some with small tears and some water staining or light foxing, all with fold-marks, otherwise very good. [Detailed list of billheads is available upon request].

        Eduard Thöny: Der Schrei nach dem Kind (Originalzeichnung)

      1907 - Tusche (Pinsel und Feder) und Deckweiß auf Papier. 44 x 32,5 cm. Veröffentlicht: Simplicissimus. Jahrgang 12 (1907), Heft 37, Seite 611 Text: „Wenn du nicht immer so gräßlich viel Geld in Deinem Klub verspieltest, könnten wir uns schon den Luxus eines Babys leisten.“ Biografie: Eduard Thöny (1866 Brixen (Südtirol) - 1950 Holzhausen am Ammersee). Eduard Thöny wächst als Sohn südtiroler Eltern in München auf, wo er von 1886 bis 1892 Genre- und Historienmalerei an der Kunstakademie studiert. In dieser Zeit sowie in den folgenden Jahren unternimmt er mehrere Studienreisen nach Paris, Berlin und London, auf denen er sich sowohl mit der neuesten Illustrationskunst als auch mit den sozialen Milieus der Großstadt auseinandersetzt. Beide Eindrücke sind für Thönys künstlerische Entwicklung prägend. Bereits während des Studiums verdient Thöny seinen Lebensunterhalt mit Zeichnungen für illustrierte Zeitungen. Seine in den Münchner Humoristischen Blättern erscheinenden Beiträge erregen die Aufmerksamkeit des Verlegers Albert Langen, der ihn als Mitarbeiter für die von ihm 1896 gegründete Zeitschrift Simplicissimus engagiert. Neben Thomas Theodor Heine, Bruno Paul und Ferdinand von Reznicek zählt Eduard Thöny zu den Simplicissimus-Zeichnern der ersten Stunde und hat entscheidenden Anteil am Aufstieg des Wochenblatts zu Deutschlands führender Satirezeitschrift. Bis zu ihrer Einstellung 1944 wird sie über 3.400 Karikaturen von ihm veröffentlichen. Thönys Domäne ist die Gesellschaftskarikatur. Anregungen hierzu findet er in München und seinem agrarisch geprägten Umland genauso wie in Berlin mit seinem reichen Reservoir an Typen und Motiven. Dort studiert er die Vertreter von Aristokratie und Proletariat, Militär und Bürgertum, Hautevolee und Boheme, die zum Gegenstand vieler seiner Beiträge für den Simplicissimus werden. Doch auch wenn gesellschaftlicher Dünkel, intellektuelle Beschränktheit bzw. moralische Verwahrlosung immer wiederkehrende Themen seines Repertoires sind, zielt Thöny nicht im eigentlichen Sinne auf die Verletzung der Dargestellten ab. Vielmehr möchte er wie ein Anthropologe mit dem Zeichenstift den Menschentyp hinter dem Individuum erfassen, wodurch seine Werke bis heute aktuell erscheinen. Bei der Leserschaft des Simplicissimus erfreuen sich Thönys Beiträge auf Anhieb großer Beliebtheit. Zwischen 1899 und 1910 verstärkt der Albert-Langen-Verlag diese Entwicklung durch die Herausgabe von fünf Alben mit mehreren Hundert Zeichnungen des Künstlers („Der Leutnant“, „Thöny-Album“, „Militär“, „Vom Kadetten zum General“ und „Der Bunte Rock“). Aber nicht nur Motivwahl und bildnerischer Witz erklären den Erfolg von Thönys Werken, auch ihre ausgeklügelte und zugleich experimentelle Zeichentechnik. Neben Tusche und Deckweiß kommt häufig eine aufwendige Spritztechnik zur Anwendung, die den Arbeiten einen malerischen Charakter gibt. In den Jahren vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg werden sie von führenden deutschen Kunsthändlern in Einzel- und Kollektivausstellungen präsentiert, etwa von den Brüdern Bruno und Paul Cassirer in Berlin sowie der Modernen Kunsthandlung von Franz Joseph Brakl und der Galerie Heinemann in München.

        Dziecko salonu (Child of the Drawing Room)

      Warszawa (Warsaw): Nakladem Ksiegarni Powszechne, 1907. First edition. Hardcover. f to vg. Small octavo. 347, [5]pp. Contemporary 3/4 leather over marbled paper covered boards, with gold lettering and ruling to spine. Raised bands. Original illustrated wrappers by Lewand bound in. Decorative initials. Janusz Korczak was the pen name of Henryk Goldszmit, a Polish-born doctor, author and educator, who believed that children should always be listened to and respected, and this belief was reflected in his work. Korczak's early years were marked by the increasing madness of his father. After the latter was institutionalized, he had to become the man of the house. The result was that Henryk lost his childhood as he never had the freedom and innocence of the child. In an attempt to recover that lost childhood, he spent the rest of his life caring for children and living in their world. Partially autobiographical, "Dziecko salonu" (Child of the Drawing Room) is the author's first literary success. The book tells the story of a child who has "lost his soul" in conforming to his parents' wishes. When he becomes an adult, he rebels and enters a world of experience among all classes of people; this choice finally leads him to discover his vocation as a writer. "Dziecko salonu" clearly reflects Goldszmit's own experiences as he too, was in the process of winning his independence from an overbearing mother by becoming an author as well as a doctor. He chose pediatrics for his specialty*. 5 copies of the first edition found worldwide on Worldcat.Binding rubbed along edges and spine. Previous owner's signature in ink on title (not affecting lettering). Sporadic foxing and smudges along paper margin (not affecting lettering). Text in Polish. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in good to very good condition. * In 1910, Korczak gave up his lucrative private medical practice to become the director of an orphanage for Jewish children. He participated in the planning of the facility and the methods that would be used to educate the children. The orphanage opened in 1912, and Korczak began to create the Children's Republic of which he had dreamed. Children were to govern themselves, to have their own court and newspaper, and even to decide which of the teachers should be retained or dismissed. Korczak had some difficulties with members of the Jewish community, who thought that the orphanage was "too Polish" because Korczak had not limited the school to Jewish orphans. Korczak was a Jew but also a patriotic Pole, and he tried to overcome differences between the groups in Poland. Furthermore, in Korczak's view a child had no divisive nationality or religion but automatically belonged to the world of children. In October 1940, a year after the Nazis invaded Poland, the orphanage was to be moved inside the Warsaw ghetto. From then on and for almost two years, Korczak was seen every single day with a bag in his hand, trying to get food for his children. On August 5th 1942, the Nazis issued an order for everyone to leave the orphanage. Korczak, along with his assistant Stefania Wilczynska and ten other teachers gathered the 200 orphans and walked to the railway station. There, they were all packed into cattle wagons and sent to Treblinka. They were to be never seen again.
