        The Golden Crisis [1907 futurism]

      Columbus, OH: Oasis Publishing Co., 1907 Columbus, OH: Oasis Publishing Co., 1907. First edition, signed and inscribed by Clark "yours for the millenium..." on the ffep. 7" x 4.75", gilt pictorial dark blue cloth. Shelf wear, strongly along bottom edges, else VG+. Sturdy and bright. A look - in 1907 - by historical muralist Egbert Norman Clark at the transformation the human psyche was encountering during the first few years after the run of the nineteenth century. A familiar sounding passage echos from his introductory paragraph: ""The most advanced thinkers and students of sociology of the day all agree that the human race is now passing through a transitional period in its development, and that, as a social fabric, we are rapidly approaching a crisis." With chapter titles taken from astrology - numbered "ages" dominated each by a planet - and strong spiritual opinions by Clark throughout ("Humanity Is God!!!) - a fascinating, telling, uncategorizable futuristic book. Very rare in its first edition; this one is signed, and as such is probably not replaceable. Please feel free to ask questions or request additional scans. L2

        4 eigenh. Briefe mit U.

      Verschiedene Orte, 1907. - Verschiedene Formate. Zusammen 22 SS. auf 12 Bll. Freundschaftliche Korrespondenz mit Arthur Kahane und Margarethe über private Angelegenheiten und seine aktuelle Arbeit: "Liebe, Gute, Seien Sie mir nicht mehr böse: ich fühle es allzudeutlich, dass Sie es mir sein müssen, nicht so äußerlich, aber ein ganz klein wenig innerlich: denn auch einen solchen Brief gehört doch wenigstens irgend ein Antwortton, und wenn es nur ein halt unverständliches Gegrunz oder Gemurmel ist als da: liebe Frau Margarethe u. s. w. Aber sehen Sie, seit Ende April habe ich keinen Tag gehabt, an dem es mir möglich erschienen wäre, eine vernünftige Zeile zu schreiben, und auch heute bin ich noch ohne rechte Sammlung und jenes gute Gewissen gegen sich selbst [.] Was den Goldoni betrifft, so hat mich, wie Sie wohl schon wissen, Freksa überredet, die Sache mit ihm zusammen zu machen. Ich bin vielleicht von einigem Nutzen dabei, - vor allem wird auf diese Weise wenigstens gewährleistet, dass das Stück bis Juli etwa fertig ist, auch wird ihm so wohl ein bischen mehr Ellbogenfreiheit für die Komödie und Salambo (deren Übersetzung während dieser paar Monate mir fast als unmöglich vorkommt) [.]" (Mai 1907). - "Soeben erhielt ich Deinen Brandbrief, über dessen Entzifferung ich auf S. 5 den Verstand verlor, was ich im Folgenden eventuell in Betracht zu ziehen bitte. Desgleichen bitte ich Dich den angekündigten dramaturgischen Brief für Reinhardt ja mit der Maschine - dem Biest zu schreiben, ebenso wie jede Bemerkung Deiner Einrichtung (man kann dieselben auf Zetteln einkleben). Was alles (undeutsche Construction) auch für den Goldoni gelten möge [.]" ([Juli 1907]). - "Flauberts Briefe sind prachtvoll, besonders die an Mme X u. George Sand [.]" (14. VIII. 1907).

        STORIES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS, Retold by Laurence Housman

      London & New York Hodder and Stoughton and Charles Scribner's Sons 1907 - First edition, with the title-page imprint added for America but with the same sheets that were printed in England by Butler and Tanner and used for the first English issue. With 50 fine tipped-in colour plates by Edmund Dulac. The plates tipped to heavy green-gray stock, each with a captioned tissue-guard. 4to, original rust-colored cloth lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt and black on the spine and upper cover in Arabian motif. 133 pp. text + 50 tipped in plates on heavy mounting paper. A very handsome copy, the plates all pristine and fine, the text clean and fresh with no foxing or toning at all. The cloth is beautifully preserved, bright and attractive with very little evidence of age or use. A FINE COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION, BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED BY EDMUND DULAC. Here we find a collection of stories from the ARABIAN NIGHTS superbly illustrated by Edmund Dulac. The original Persian fairy tales of "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," "The Fisherman and the Genie," and several others are colorfully rendered on tipped-in plates. Dulac’s affinity for oriental design becomes apparent in these exquisite, almost jewel-like images. We find the profound influence of oriental art and especially Persian miniatures in this group of exotic paintings. Intricate colors and patterns are juxtaposed to create lyrical scenes and bring the characters such as Morgiana and the Queen of the Ebony Isles to life on the page. The artist achieved intense effects in shading and atmosphere in his nocturne scenes such as "The Lady Advanced to Meet Him." As we turn the pages, we feel drawn into a mysterious world of exotic moods and clandestine encounters. "The Arabian Nights gave Dulac an opportunity to indulge in his nocturnes; the the softness of the gleam of moonlight on stone, or on shadowy figures, and his use of ultramarine, indigo and Prussian blue, mingled with purples and violets, brought to the illustrations the calm and mystery of Eastern nights."-Colin White "Leicester Galleries displayed the Dulac watercolors for THE ARABIAN NIGHTS in the autumn of 1907, at the same time the book was (originally) released. With unanimous praise the book was received by the critics and every picture sold even before the exhibition was opened to the general public. In light of this overwhelming success, Leicester Galleries promptly signed a contract with Dulac for one book a year, the subject to be chosen jointly between them and in consultation with Hodder & Stoughton."-Susan Meyer. The modern reader can only be grateful that such an arrangement was made, as we shall always have the body of extraordinary illustrations that ensued. This lovely edition of STORIES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS, liltingly illustrated by Dulac, will be a cherished addition to any library. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Wonder Map of the Wonder Mining District...Map title: Revised Map of U.S. Patent & Location Surveys in Wonder Mining District Churchill County Nevada

      Wonder, Nevada.: D. H. Blossom.. 1907.. Color folding map attached to card stock covers, 7 1/2 x 4 inches unfolding to 30 x 32 1/2 inches, depicting the Wonder Mining District [Nevada]. There are several breaks in the folds of the fragile paper, while a dogleg tear at the top of the map (archival tape repair) measures 2 x 2 1/2 inches. A congruent tear in the top margin measures two inches. The map shows the modest Wonder townsite situated in a vast landscape of mining claims, depicted in various colors. The Index on the map documents well over 100 claims. Wonder flourished between 1906 and 1919, with a 1907 population estimated at 1200 persons. The sum of $6,350,000 is attached to the Wonder District's recorded production in gold and silver. Web resources regarding Wonder and its history can be had at "Nevada Mining and You," a pdf created by the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology. (The pdf provides a photo of the Wonder townsite circa 1910); also, the Wikipedia entry "Wonder, Nevada" provides useful details regarding the mining town. See also Hugh Shamberger's "The Story of Wonder, Churchill County, Nevada," (Nevada Historical Press, 1974). There is only one listing for Blossom's map on WorldCat. This scarce map, of considerable interest with regard to Nevada mining history, is in very good clean condition, with issues noted. .

        Anatomie und Ätiologie der Genitalprolapse beim Weibe.

      . Wien und Leipzig, Wilhelm Braumüller, 1907, 8°, XII, 273, (1) pp., 44 Abb. und 60 Tafeln; feiner Leinenband mit eingebundener Titelbroschur; eigenhändige Widmung "Herrn Prof.D. R. Paltauf in dankbarer Verehrung die Verfasser.". Erste Ausgabe- Bedeutendes Widmungsexemplar an Paltauf! - - "1907 gelang Halban und Tandler der zweite große Wurf: das Buch "Anatomie und Ätiologie der Genitalprolapse beim Weibe" wurde ein großer wissenschaftlicher Erfolg. Es ist Zuckerkandl zum 25jährigen Professorenjubiläum gewidmet. Die drei Hauptthemen sind: die normale Lage und Fixation der weiblichen Beckenorgane, die Anatomie und Ätiologie des Prolapses und seine Therapie mittels Pessar und Operation. Die Anregung ging von Einsichten aus, die Tandler bei seiner Lehrtätigkeit von der Topographie und dem Mechanismus dieser Organe gewonnen hatte. Die Zusammenarbeit der Fachleute - so kündet das Vorwort - hat durch die Beobachtung der Topographie zur Klärung, wozu kunstgerechte Gliederung und sorgsame klinische Untersuchung kam, geführt. In diesen einfachen Worten ist Tandlers wissenschaftstheoretische Anschauung niedergelegt. - Stolz vermerken die Autoren, daß sie durch jahrelanges Suchen großes Material zusammenbekommen hätten, "ein so großes anatomisches Material dürfte wohl noch niemals Substrat einer wissenschaftlichen Untersuchung über den Genitalprolaps gewesen sein". Das waren die Vorteile im "Mekka der Medizin", das Grundlagenmaterial stammte von Haberda, Alexander Kolisko (1857-1918), Paltauf, Sternberg, Weichselbaum. Auch der Rezensent in der "Wiener klinischen Wochenschrift" hob die 40Fälle von Genitalprolapsen hervor, die es erlaubt haben, die Prolapsfrage durch die vorliegende, jeglicher bloß theoretischer Deduktionen barer Beweisführung nicht nur in neue Bahnen zu lenken, sondern "allem Anscheine nach" zu lösen. Tandlers und Haibans Arbeit basierte also auf anatomischen Forschungen, wie sie in diesem Umfang noch nicht ausgeführt worden waren. - Wie sah nun die Lösung des Problems aus? Die Ätologie des Genitalprolaps war nicht eindeutig geklärt und in der Diskussion verschiedener Ansichten kamen die Autoren zu dem Schluß, daß in der Erschlaffung der Fixationsmittel der Organe kein besonders prädisponierendes Moment für die Entstehung eines Vorfalles zu erblicken wäre. Hingegen entsteht ein Prolaps wie eine Hernie dann, "wenn der Hiatus genitalis im Beckenboden nicht suffizient geschlossen ist, sondern eine Bruchpforte darstellt. Der gesteigerte Abdominaldruck preßt alle Organe oder Organteile, welche in den Druckbereich dieser Bruchpforte fallen, durch dieselbe hinaus. Kommt ein Organ ganz in den Bereich des Hiatus genitalis, so hat es am Beckenboden gar keine Stütze mehr und wird vollkommen vorgepreßt. Fällt nur ein Teil dieses Organs in diesen Bereich, während ein anderer Teil außerhalb desselben liegt, so wird der erstere durch den gesteigerten Abdominaldruck vorgepreßt, der letztere aber durch denselben Druck gegen die Unterlage gepreßt und dadurch fixiert". Das alles wird mit Experimenten belegt, wozu sie ein Phantom anfertigen ließen. Behilflich waren hierbei der Direktor der Österreichisch-Amerikanischen Gummifabrik, Edgar Herbst und Anton Lampa (1868-1938), mit dem die theoretisch-physikalischen Gesetze besprochen wurden. Hier zeigt sich Tandlers Vorliebe für technische Behelfe, mit denen er den Beweis für ein wissenschaftliches Problem antreten konnte. - Das Verhältnis zwischen Tandler und Halban soll sich nach den Veröffentlichungen bis zur Feindseligkeit abgekühlt haben." Karl Sablik, Julius Tandler: Mediziner und Sozialreformer (2010), p.27
