Quarto (12" x 8 1/2") rebound in brown cloth and black uniform labels in gilt lettering and original wrappers bound in. 1st edition.

Introduction deals with the individual printers and printing houses. Jose Toribio Medina was born on October 21, 1852, in Santiago, Chile. His father was a judge, Jose of the Medina Pillar, and his mother, Mariana Zavala, was of Basque ancestry. When he was three years old, Medina's father was named judge of Talca. There Medina attended a private school called Santiago. In 1860 the family was transferred to Valparaiso, but just two years later Medina's father became a quadriplegic when he was only 33 years old. Medina's father was sent to live in Santiago, and his mother was given a government pension on which to live and support the family. In 1865 Medina entered the National Institute and graduated in 1869, awarded with prizes in Latin and literature. Medina received an appointment as secretary of the Chilean legation to Lima, Peru, the same year he graduated law school. While in Lima he discovered the remarkable National Library under the guidance of its director, Francisco de Paula Rodriguez Vigil. Medina was not partial to diplomatic work, though it enabled him to travel and to saturate himself in the work he came to love as an investigator into the history of Chile through its volumes of documents. By 1875 he published his first volume of documentary history, a 17th century manuscript, Memories of the Kingdom of Chile and Don Francisco Meneses, written by Friar Juan de Jesus Maria. His travel became increasingly frequent, both to Europe and to the United States, digging through archives and searching to fill his bibliographies. In 1877 he published a 1,300-page volume titled History of the Colonial Literature of Chile. He went on to publish numerous bibliographies of works printed in the colonial period through out Latin America. Condition: some pages age darkened else a very good set.

Interesting ALS About Travel Plans & His Automobile. 8vo., 1 1/2 pages on the elaborate letterhead of Hôtel Café Restaurant G. Donizot. Auxerre,(Yonne, Bourgogne) n.d. [c. 1907].Trans. In part. "My dear Griffin / Tomorrow, we're headed to Savoie en Dauphiné where I will stay for some time before going to Tropez in September. It would be helpful for me to plan this tour if I knew when you may need Poirel for the casting of the Darzens cars. / I hope your car motors wonderfully and shows you the joys of tourism while waiting for the 24 HP's vanderbiltian pleasures! As for us, we are making a 'un petit 33 des famille' with pannes & pannettes, but I am now convinced that I have a good machine under my feet. / Please, with my respect, send Mrs. Viele my wife's fondest memory and trust in my wholehearted friendship. / P. Signac A very good example with small loss at the left margin not affecting text, neatly closed tears reinforced at the folds. Orig. "Mon cher Griffin / Nous sommes en essais et mise au point avec Poirel Sans l'Avallonnais (petite surfe trop miniature). Demain nous embrayons pour Savoie et Dauphiné, où je séjournerai quelque temps pour arriver en Septembre à Tropez. / Il me serait bien utile pour l'organisation de cette tournée de savoir le moment où vous pourriez avoir besoin de Poirel pour le moulage des voitures Darzens. Si vous vouliez bien m'écrire un mot à ce sujet chez M. Terifier, notaire, II me St Nizier, Macon (S. et L.) vous me rendriez service. / J'espère que votre voiture roule à merveille et vous fait gouter les pures joies du tourisme, en attendant les délices vanderbiltiennes de la 24 HP.! Nous, nous faisons un petit 33 des famille avec pannes et pannettes, mais je suis maintenant convaincu d'avoir de la bonne mécanique sous les pieds. / Veuillez présenter à Madame Viele avec mes hommages, le meilleur souvenir de ma femme et croire à toute mon amitié. / P. Signac". Paul Signac [1863 - 1935]. French neo-impressionist painter who, working with Georges Seurat, helped develop the pointillist style. In 1884 he met Claude Monet & Georges Seurat. He was struck by the systematic working methods of Seurat & by his theory of colors & became Seurat's faithful supporter. Under his influence he abandoned the short brushstrokes of impressionism to experiment with scientifically juxtaposed small dots of pure color, intended to combine & blend not on the canvas but in the viewer's eye, the defining feature of pointillism. Many of Signac's paintings are of the French coast. He loved to paint the water. He left the capital each summer, to stay in the south of France in the village of Collioure or at St. Tropez.

        The Golden Crisis [1907 futurism]

      Oasis Publishing Co., Columbus, OH 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.
