It has also been noted that "Edmund Dulac became Rackham's rival in the gift-book field after the publication of... Arabian Nights... in which the mystery of the East was well evoked by the artist's current passion for deep blues and purples" (Whalley & Chester, A History of Children's Book Illustration, 1988, p. 152).

        AN EPISODE OF FLATLAND: OR HOW A PLANE FOLK DISCOVERED THE THIRD DIMENSION. TO WHICH IS ADDED AN OUTLINE OF THE HISTORY OF UNAEA.

      London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co., Limd., 1907 - Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-181 [182: blank] [183: ads] [184: blank], figures in text, original maroon cloth, front panel ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition, first binding with "Sonnenschein" printed at base of spine panel. C. H. Hinton (1853-1907) was concerned with finding ways of expanding the mind beyond the confines it had been taught to accept as final. His interest in the fourth dimension was the outcome of this search. He published his first essay on the topic, "What is the Fourth Dimension?," in 1880. In the famous analogy, pioneered by Edwin A. Abbott in FLATLAND (1884), and by Hinton himself in "A Plane World" (1886), a being of two dimensions would not be able to perceive a three dimensional object, such as a cube, and would perceive it in two dimensions only, as a square. In the same way, a man is not able to perceive any four dimensional objects, and if any are encountered, he explains them in terms of the familiar three dimensions. Hinton's "very strange story [AN EPISODE OF FLATLAND] describes a two-dimensional world rather more complicated than Abbott's, and features a startling plot in which the inhabitants of a two- dimensional planet avoid collision with another by diverting their 'world' in[to] the third dimension, taking advantage of the fact that -- like the human hero of 'An Unfinished Communication' -- their souls have access to more dimensions than their bodies." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 137. "At the time of his death, Hinton's last book, AN EPISODE OF FLATLAND . was in press. We can fittingly regard this mature and mellow novel as Hinton's last testament. Any preconceptions of Hinton as some sort of narrow-minded crank are dispelled by the gentle self-irony of the book, which features two characters modeled on Hinton himself." - Rudy Rucker, "Life in the Fourth Dimension: C. H. Hinton and His Scientific Romances," Foundation 18 (January 1980), 12-18. Hinton's work was destined to be the inspiration for other writers whose works would eclipse his own. His scientific romances provided ideas that may have influenced the early work of H. G. Wells, and his speculations on multidimensionality inspired the better known speculations of P. D. Ouspensky. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 1- 98. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1100. Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), pp. 337 and 565.

        The Ingoldsby Legends

      London: J. M. Dent & Co,, 1907. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. Quarto (273 x 207 mm). Late 20th century green full morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, decorative gilt spine, three-line gilt border on sides, front cover with image of Lord Brougham (taken from the plate at p. 202) in multi-coloured morocco onlays, all edges gilt, richly gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Housed in a custom made green cloth solander box. Tipped-in colour frontispiece and 23 colour plates tipped-in on moss-green heavy stock paper (with captioned tissue guards), 12 tinted plates, and 66 illustrations in the text. General light toning to letterpress; with the curious offsetting over the tinted plate opposite p. 254 ("They came floating about him like so many prawns"), noted by us in another copy of this limited edition but not the case in the trade edition. First enlarged Rackham edition, number 72 of 560 copies signed by the illustrator; it was originally published in 1898 in a trade edition only, containing just 12 colour plates and 90 drawings in the text. This 1907 edition 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). A very handsomely bound copy.

        Zur Chirurgie des Herzens und des Herzbeutels, in 'Archiv fur Klinische Chirurgie'.

      Berlin: Verlag von August Hirshwald 1907. Pp.904. Original printed wrappers. Prof. Dr. Rehn's treatise appears on pp.723-778. A fine copy, in a folding protective case with gilt-titled orange leather label to spine and gilt crest to upper (some wear to box). This is an account of the first successful suture of the heart and an important paper in the evolution of cardiac surgery. "The Italian surgeons did some bold operating on the heart... the first successful suture was done by L. Rehn at Frankfort on the Main in 1896... Rehn's case was alive when he wrote this paper, over ten years after the operation had been performed" (Garrison, page 596).This copy is from the important Library of future Bond novelist Ian Fleming, a famous 1930's book collector who, under guidance of Percy Muir of London Booksellers Elkin Matthews, sought volumes and papers that changed the course of mankind. They assembled an impressive archive of the theories behind techological and social progress and advancement including eminent works by such authors as Charles Darwin (evolution), Albert Einstein (relativity), Marie Curie (radiation), Alexander Graham Bell (telephony), Heinrich Hertz (radio waves), Michael Faraday and Alexander Volta (electricity), Karl Marx (communism), Orville Wright (aviation), Francis Galton (fingerprinting) and Sigmund Freud (psychiatry). Muir later claimed it was one of the proudest achievements of his life, and at the landmark 'Printing and the Mind of Man' exhibition in July 1963 Fleming's provided 44 scientific books from his library, far exceeding any other private collector and second only to Cambridge University. Much to Muir's chagrin, Fleming insisted each volume be housed in buckram cases of his design, with a coloured morocco label to indicate subject; orange for pure science, green for medicine, etc. Muir disapproved of spending money on anything that wasn't a book.Following Fleming's death and some drawn-out negotiations, his collection was sold in 1970 to the University of Indiana, and is housed at their Lilly Library, along with the ms. to the majority Fleming's James Bond novels. 'A few' of the titles which were acquired by Fleming had been previously sold and are not part of the Lilly holdings- some may have been duplicates, where an upgrade had been sought, or perhaps an inscribed or annotated copy became available. For whatever reason, those copies that have made it into commerce are particularly scarce; I know of just three other titles- Einstein's Theory of Relativity [housed in the Ian Fleming Bibliographical Archive],Fuhlrott's Discovery of Neanderthal Man [sold at Christies, New York, June 2008] and Darwin's Origin of the Species [offered by an ABA member in 2010]. The present book is remarkable in its own right, but of further significance in that it is just one of a few known Fleming-owned scientific texts to surface; this was previously owned by the James Bond historian John Griswald.In 2008, to celebrate the launch of the Definitive Works of Ian Fleming in Limited Edition, some five books from the Fleming Collection were exhibited in London for the first time since the book were acquired by the Lilly Library thirty eight years previously.

Brill, 1907. - 8vo. 289-405 pp., in: Tijdschrift van het Koninklijk Nederlandsch Aardrijkskundig Genootschap, tweede serie, deel XXIV no. 3 (15 Mei). 289-545, (1) pp. With 2 folding maps and a folding table. Original printed wrappers. First edition. - In 1645, Captain Cornelis Roobacker set out from Bandar Abbas with two small Dutch ships for the first trading mission to Basra, which could only be reached with small vessels in the shallow waters of the upper end of the Gulf. Three logbooks of this expedition have survived in the Dutch General State Archives; the only one of these to be published is the logbook no. 280a, here edited for the first and only time by A. Hotz. Among the plates are a modern map of the Gulf region as well as a 17th century Dutch nautical chart which the editor errouneously attributed to Roobacker. "Roobacker's ships had English charts on board, but Roobacker complained that they were very inaccurate [. He] made a chart of his travels between Laraq and Basra, with marks of depths and accurate notes on geographic latitude. This chart shows his progress up to Bubiyan" (Slot, The Origins of Kuwait [1991], p. 18). - Occasional slight foxing; a good copy of an important and much-quoted source. B. J. Slot, The Arabs of the Gulf 1602-1784, p. 11. OCLC 71448278. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      London, E.Moxon Son & co., 1870. Vollständige Ausgabe in eleganten, aufwendig hergestellten Handeinbänden: 2 Bände, gebunden in Ganzpergament / Pergament / GPgt / Pgt / 8vo im Format 13,4 x 18,4 cm mit Rückentitel auf Lederschildchen in Goldprägung, Ganzgoldschnitt, handgestochenem Kopfband, Pergamenthäubchen, Handvergoldung der Deckel (Liniendekoration) sowie Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung, Vorsätze aus glänzendem Handmarmorpapier. 504 und 602 Seiten, jeder Band mit einer Frontispiz-Abbildung (samt Seitenhemdchen). - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag (\"Häubchen\") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können.\" Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder-und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14. - Luxus-Ausgabe in Ganzpergament-Handeinband in sehr guter Erhaltung (bei Band 2 ein Flecken unten auf dem Vorderdeckel, sonst sehr gut) Versand D: 5,90 EUR Englische Kunstbuchbinderei im 19.Jahrhundert, Pergamentband, Pergamentausgabe, Pergament-Handband, Romantik, englische Literatur im 19.

MacKenzie, acknowledging a letter which evidently faulted him for neglecting the private side of Lord Randolph Churchill in the masterful political biography he had published the previous year; Churchill accepts that the work was "somewhat too severely circumscribed in its social and private side from the fact that it was written by a son", citing a natural hesitancy in treating private matters which are of course of considerable interest to the family but which "may appear trivial to the general public". - Fol. 1 recto marked by Churchill as "private"; on stationery with embossed letterhead "Colonial Office, Downing Street, S.

Appleton, 1907.Limited first American edition of Bernhardt's Memories of My Life, signed by her, scarce unnumbered copy, one of 250 in the limited "autograph edition," with frontispiece and over 25 full-page illustrations, in original gilt-stamped cloth with comic mask blindstamped to the front board."Sarah Bernhardt was not simply the most famous actress the world has seen; she was among the most gifted… Working within the Romantic tradition, she created exciting entertainment out of wild emotion, yet never quite lost her ability to touch the heights and depths of tragic understanding… audiences found it hard to resist making connections between her roles and her lifestyle" (ODNB). This intimate account of her life is "intensely readable… central to our knowledge of her life up to and through her first American tour of 1880-1881" (Gottlieb, Sarah Bernhardt). In her conclusion Bernhardt observes: "My life, which I thought at first to be so short, seemed now to be very, very long, and that gave me a great mischievous delight whenever I thought of the infernal displeasures of my enemies." Dramatic Bibliography, 66.Interior very fresh and clean, only lightest soiling to cloth. A fine signed copy.

        La thŽorie de la physique chez les physiciens contemporains.

      Paris Alcan 1907 - Erste Ausgabe. Gr.-8vo. (1) Bl., V, 412 S., II S. (Errata). Originalbroschur. Unaufgeschnittenes Exemplar. Sehr selten.¦ Abel Rey (1873-1940), franzšsischer Philosoph, von ãzentraler Bedeutung fŸr die Philosophie der Physik und damit der modernen Philosophie . Insbesondere auf Philipp Frank hatte Reys Arbeit einen gro§en Eindruck gemacht . In seiner Dissertation [die hier vorliegt] wandte sich Rey mit Nachdruck gegen die damals nicht nur in Frankreich populŠre These vom Bankrott des traditionellen Mechanismus und des auf ihm aufbauenden physikalischen Weltbildes. Aus dem Scheitern des naiven Mechanismus der AufklŠrung folge, so Rey, keineswegs das Scheitern der Wissenschaften . Was Rey vorschwebte und Frank so begeisterte, war der Versuch, angesichts einer zunehmend relativistischen Physik am Begriff der ObjektivitŠt festzuhalten . FŸr Rey war erst im Rahmen einer modernen, relationistischen Physik eine sinnvolle Verwendung des Begriffs der ObjektivitŠt mšglich, da er von metaphysischen Implikationen befreit und an verifizierbare Erfahrungen geknŸpft wird. Damit steckte Rey die Grundkoordinaten der wissenschafts-theoretischen Diskussionen der zwanziger Jahre ab. Mit seinem aufklŠrerischen Geist wurde er stilbildend fŸr den Wiener Kreis .Ò (Artikel von A. Grau in FAZ 178 Ÿber eine Arbeit von M.

        The Rhyme Of A Run

      London - Blackie and Son 1907 - A uncommon first edition of this early Nineteenth Century illustrated children's book. With colour illustrations throughout, the work is written and illustrated by renowned Art Noveau and Pre-Raphaelite illustrator Florence Harrison, who had previously worked with notable poets such as Christina Rossetti and Alfred Tennyson. Decoratively bound, this work makes for an excellent example of Harrison's work, as well as a interesting example of children's literature in its own right. The volume contains an ink inscription addressing the book to 'Lloyd, with Christmas wishes'. Condition: In decorative cloth binding with gilt detailing. Externally quite smart, there is some wear to the boards, backstrip, joints and extremities, as well as some rubbing to extremities and marks to boards. Internally, the pages are firmly bound, although there is some age toning and light marking to some pages, and creasing and chipping to some illustrations, some of which are not firmly tipped in - though this could be rectified. There is also an ink inscription to the endpages. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Oxford Edition. The Complete Poetical Works.

      London: Henry Frowde,, 1907. Edited with an introduction and textual notes by H. Buxton Forman. Octavo. Contemporary full vellum by Bumpus, flat spine richly gilt, green morocco label lettered in gilt, double frame to sides gilt, inner dentelles gilt, all edges gilt, green silk page-marker. Portrait frontispiece. Gift inscription dated 1917 to front free endpaper. A fine copy. Henry Buxton Forman (1842-1917) was a bibliographer - and notorious forger - whose "literary interests crystallized round Keats and Shelley. He channelled a general enthusiasm into a minute study of textual details, for which his careful and exacting temperament was ideally suited … His most controversial piece of scientific editing was The Letters of John Keats to Fanny Brawne (1876), as there was thought to be something improper in the publication of such frank letters. After the fuss had died down, Forman's insistence on what the author wrote was seen to be correct, and his editions became standard and his methods widely adopted. He produced many later and improved editions, his popular position culminating in the Oxford Standard Authors edition of Keats (1907)" (ODNB).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Heinrich Mann").

      München, 19. I. 1907. - 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. "Sehr geehrter Herr, Frau v. Sacher-Masoch war krank, wird Ihnen aber jetzt, wenn sie es nicht schon gethan hat, das Material schicken. Die Dame zeigt sich mit den Werken ihres Gatten sehr gut vertraut und kann Ihnen, die Anzahl betreffend, vielleicht bessere Anregungen geben, als ich es könnte. Da Ihnen die noch freien unter den ungedruckten Novellen nicht zusagen, würde es sich freilich hauptsächlich um Neudrucke handeln; doch sind Sachen wie Die geschiedene Frau dabei, die längst vergriffen ist und wohl wirklich wie neu wirken würde. Man müßte ein Exemplar davon auftreiben. Am Meisten aber wird, meine ich, noch immer mit den berühmten Novellen zu machen sein: Don Juan von Kolomea, Der Kapitulant, Die Mondnacht, Die Liebe des Plato und Maecella. Venus im Pelz ist, wie Frau v. S-M mir schreibt, schon verkauft. Wie Sie über einen Sensationsroman 'Hermelin und Lorbeer' und über einen sozialen Roman 'Die Gesunden und die Kranken' denken, weiß ich nicht. Mir wären die Novellen sympathisch[er], zumal wenn ich das Vorwort zu schreiben hätte. Es würde mich freuen, wenn Sie mir bald eine günstige Entscheidung resp. ein Angebot mittheilen könnten [.]". Wohl an den Verleger Fritz Freund, in dessen "Wiener Verlag" im Vorjahr Heinrich Manns "Schauspielerin" herausgekommen war und der 12 Jahre nach dem Tod des Autors eine von Mann bevorwortete Sacher-Masoch-Sammlung geplant haben könnte, welche allerdings nicht zu Stande kam. Bereits 1901 waren in Dresden bei Dohrn die "Grausamen Frauen - Hinterlassene Novellen" erschienen. - Gelocht mit etwas Buchstabenberührung; Spuren mittiger Querfaltung.

Artist, illustrator and designer Robert Anning Bell (1863?-1933) was an early member of the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society, showing regularly with the group and serving as the de facto official illustrator of its influential art magazine, The Studio. "From the mid-1890s onwards Bell became increasingly successful as a book designer and illustrator. The subjects chosen were usually from literary sources including fairy tales, works by the romantic poets, and the Bible (...) His distinctive style, characterized by dreaming maidens in a setting of symbolist swirls, was redolent of the emerging European art nouveau movement" (ODNB). Bell's work was included in "The Last Romantics" exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery in 1989, four of his paintings are in the Tate collection. Part of George Bell & Sons' Endymion Series, and containing Keats's poem of the same title.
