        A Nuremberg (Nürnberg) Tower. 1907.

      Nuremberg., Germany: 1907 - Original color crayon drawing. Signed, dated and titled in the image. Titled and dated on the support sheet. 9.5 x 6.25 inches image size. Provenance: Part of a portfolio of original works given to the collector Natalie Williams on June 1, 1937 by Wall. Natalie Williams was the sister-in-law of the Texas collector N.C. Matthewson of Marshall, Texas, and both were owners of the Made-Rite Company. She was a patroness of artists and an art donor to Texas A & M University.Bernhardt Wall was born in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 30, 1872. He studied at the Buffalo Art Student's League then moved on to study in New York under Henry Reuterdahl and also apprenticed under William Auerbach-Levy. Wall began a career as a lithographic illustrator in 1889 working primarily as a commercial artist in New York and Buffalo. He soon became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 5,000 comic cards. The year 1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region.Bernhardt Wall was unique in that he not only drew the etchings for his books, but he also printed and bound them. His books are in libraries and universities around the world including the British Museum, Library of Congress, the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Brown Universities. His works were also in the private collections of J. P. Morgan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry C. Frick and Dr. N.C. Mathewson. Wall etched three sitting presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Taft, and Henry Coolidge. Other prominent individuals etched by Wall include Sam Houston, Mark Twain, Thomas A. Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson.Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake. This collection of Wall's scrapbooks, publications, and correspondence was built by collector Natalie Williams of Marshall, Texas.

        Der siebente Ring. Mit Buchschmuck von Melchior Lechter.

      Bln Blätter für die Kunst 1907 - Gr.-8°. 213(5) S. Lila OLn. m. Dverg. (Rücken und Deckel am Rand lichtrandig, minimale Fehlstellen an den falschen Bünden). Erste Ausgabe. Landmann 267. Raub A 62. - Eines von 500 Exemplaren (Gesamtauflage 535). Mit den beiden ganzseitigen Zinkographien: 1. Ein auf Bergeshöh knieender Engel, der sieben Sterne abzeichnet. 2. Sieben Schlangen von einem Baum herabhängend. Druck in Rot und Schwarz. - Mit dem Siebenten Ring öffnet George den bisher aus kunstschaffenden Freunden bestehenden Kreis zu einer Gemeinschaft von Schülern und Jüngern (Friedrich Wolters, Kurt Hildebrandt u.a.), in dessen Mittelpunkt nicht mehr die Lyrik alleine, sondern vielmehr eine religiöse, mythische, ganzheitliche Weltan-schau-ung steht, welche 3 Jahre später mit dem "Jahrbuch für die geistige Bewegung" (3 Jahrgänge) regelrecht Kultur-Politik treibt. - Georges siebtes lyrisches Werk im Jahr 1907 erschienen ist eingeteilt in 7 Gruppen und jede Gruppe hat ein jeweils Vielfaches an Versen (14 / 21 etc.). Die göttliche Zahl 7 ist Ausdruck für das zentrale Thema des Werkes, in dessen Mitte, der 4. Gruppe, Maximin steht, den George "vergötterte". Gundolf beschreibt diesen Vorgang als "die deutsche Wiedergeburt der griechischen Liebe: Verewigung des schönen Leibes durch den Geist. bei Platon war die Erscheinung des ewigen Geistes durch den Leib. Beidemal ist der Geist der Jugend am Werk." In Maximin habe George "den Menschen gefunden dessen Schönheit, Kraft, Glut, Reinheit, Fülle, Einfachheit, Adel, Anmut und Hoheit alles vergegenwärtigte was ihm je Geschichte bot, Zukunft verhieß. Sein eigenes Gebet, das göttliche Urbild und die menschliche Erscheinung waren eins geworden in Maximin. (.) Aus der Erhebung zum Entrückten ist das Buch Maximin entstanden, das die Mitte des Siebenten Ringes und den Kern von Georges weiterem Schaffen bildet: die Feier des offenbarten Gottes durch Lied und Lehre." - Das Werk sucht die Vereinigung von Diesseits und Jenseits und im "Gott-Sehen" eine neue Stufe nach Trieb, Seele und Geist. "Man hat die Augen für diese Stufe oder man hat sie nicht", damit beendet Gundolf Debatten über "Befremdlichkeit" bzw. Geheimlehre in der Rezeption des Siebenten Ringes. - Schönes Exemplar.

        The Spirit of the People. An Analysis of the English Mind.

      London: Alston Rivers, Ltd, 1907 - 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.

        Sister Carrie

      New York: B. W. Dodge & Company, 1907 Second edition, first issue. Signed and inscribed by Dreiser to the front free endpaper. Dark red cloth stamped in gilt. Boards lightly soiled and variously worn, with tips bumped and spine cocked; with photograph of Dreiser mounted onto front pastedown and previous owner's bookplate and ownership inscription to front free endpaper, as well as a brief typed biography of Dreiser tipped in to the rear free endpaper, and ownership inscription to p.557. Overall a very good copy. Sister Carrie tells the story Caroline Meeber, a young woman from Wisconsin who dreams of living a glamorous life in the city. After she moves to Chicago, Carrie becomes the mistress of two wealthy businessmen, through whom she is able to transform herself into a stylish urban woman. After moving to New York City, Carrie is able to fulfil her dreams of becoming a famous actress, but only to realize that material wealth does not elicit true happiness. Although today considered one of Dreier's best novels, Sister Carrie was initially met with mixed critical reviews and was not commercially successful. While the protagonist's lack of Victorian moral values all but ensured that there would be some negative criticism, much of Sister Carrie's initial lack of success was due to the publisher's distaste for the novel; after Dreiser made publication arrangements with Walter Page, his partner Frank Doubleday attempted to cancel the publication, but, being legally prevented from doing so, appeased himself by refusing to market the text properly. . Inscribed by Author. second Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

Some edge wear and nicks on the black covers were also touched up. The repair work was performed by Eidolon House, a notable bindery, to merely conserve the book and not fully restore it.*As stated at the rear of the book, this is the Quarto Photogravure Edition, with one thousand copies issued and printed on Arches made paper. Published in 1907 by Paul Elder and Company (New York); illustrated by Galen Perrett. No dust jacket. Hardcovers have faint soiling, staining, and are slightly worn at the beveled edges on the front and rear boards. Book has worn corners and edges but features a gilt top-edge of textblock. The protective tissue paper before the 'Fordham Cottage' illustration is detached at the top. Few smudges on several pages throughout volume but with no writing or markings. Overall it is in Very Good condition, and unlike other books of this edition with deteriorating suede 1/4 leather bindings, this book is set to last another 100 years!If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

        OUR LADY OF THE BEECHES

      London: William Heinemann, 1907. This romance by a scandalous American heiress who married into a noble German family and then became a popular novelist was beautifully bound by Cedric Chivers, using a tranquil garden scene invoking the beloved woods of the title character. Clearly with autobiographical elements, "Beeches" involves the love story between a celebrated scientist and a clever American woman who is the wife of an Austrian nobleman. Our author, Bettina Riddle (1874-1957), was born into a wealthy Pennsylvania family and, like other American heiresses of her day, married a title--Friedrich Karl August, Baron von Hutten zum Stolzenberg. Her first novel appeared in 1898--the same year as her first child--and she went on to produce 25 novels over the next 40 years, including a series featuring her most famous character, Pam. She and the baron divorced in 1909, reputedly over her infatuation with an Italian tenor, and she settled in London (though wintering in Rome). Cedric Chivers (1853-1929) established binding premises in his native Bath after an inspiring visit to the Paris Exhibition of 1878, and a short time later, after hearing a lecture by Cyril Davenport on the 18th century painted vellum bindings of Edwards of Halifax, he began producing his own work in this tradition, creating what he called the "vellucent" binding. The innovative part of these bindings, as seen here, was accomplished by rendering vellum transparent, then placing it over painted pieces of paper, thereby protecting the surface of the paper from soiling and abrasion. Prideaux says that the process achieves the effect of enriched enamel. Chivers often used mother-of-pearl inlays on his vellucent bindings, and here the inlays give the sundial on the cover a more three-dimensional aspect.. 190 x 130 mm. (7 1/2 x 5"). 4 p.l., 245, [1] pp., [1] leaf. A VERY PRETTY VELLUCENT BINDING BY CEDRIC CHIVERS (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), upper cover with large central panel outlined in gilt, depicting an idyllic grove of trees, with a large marbled sundial in the foreground, this highlighted with mother-of-pearl inlays, smooth spine with painted title panel, gilt-ruled turn-ins, vellum doublures. With frontispiece portrait of the author. A little light soiling to vellum, occasional minor spots of foxing to margins, otherwise a fine, fresh copy, the binding well preserved and without the splaying that often affects vellum boards.
