      New York: J. S. Ogilvie Publishing Company, 1907., 1907. First edition. 12mo. Pictorial wrappers, [4], 128 pp., frontis. [portrait]. An outlaw rarity today. Six Guns 1263 says "This little volume has now become scarce and a collector's item. It is based upon the play by Walter Woods and Joseph Santley. The novel version follows the play closely, and of course, both are fiction." Dykes Kid 286 says ".... BILLY THE KID was a successful play for twelve consecutive years. After an opening run in the New York Star Theatre in New York, beginning August 13, 1906, it enjoyed long runs at leading theatres throughout the country. The management claimed in 1913 that the play had already been witnessed by over six million people; probably the total reached ten million before the final curtain in 1918." Pages uniformly browned, light wear to the spine ends, else a very good copy. DYKES KID 38, 48, 286. SIX GUNS 1263.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      1907. The American Edition De Luxe in the Original Glassine and Box[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. CARROLL, Lewis. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. New York: Doubleday Page & Co. [n.d., 1907]. First American De Luxe Edition. Limited to 550 numbered copies (this copy being # 114) signed in red ink by the publisher. Large quarto (11 3/16 x 9 inches; 285 x 230 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.Publishers quarter dark green cloth over light green boards. Front cover decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt with a color image of 'Alice' (from the frontispiece) pasted-on. Pictorial endpapers printed in green. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A very fine copy in the original decorative 'spiders-web' glassine, in the original green cardboard box, decoratively lettered in gold. This is by far the finest copy of the American Edition De Luxe that we have ever seen."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.

        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).

        The Novels

      London: J. M. Dent & Co.; E. P. Dutton & Co., New York, , 1907-09. [Pride & Prejudice; Sense and Sensibility; Mansfield Park; Emma; Northanger Abbey; Persuasion. Each novel] With twenty-four coloured illustrations by C. E. Brock. 6 volumes, octavo. Original gilt decorative cloth, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, pictorial endpapers. Each volume with 24 colour plates by C. E. Brock. Occasional minor spotting to pages, endpapers tanned, contents a little toned, bindings with some mild toning to spines, a few volumes with inner front hinge cracked, a very good set. First Brock editions of the complete novels of Jane Austen. C. E. Brock (1870-1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen within Macmillan's 1895-7 series (with introductions by Austin Dobson), Brock illustrating only Pride and Prejudice, and Hugh Thomson illustrating the other five titles. That series was illustrated in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later, J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite, this time in colour, and to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. Dent's "Series of English Idylls" thus presents the first Brock illustrations for the complete Austen set and the first in colour. Brock was elected as a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1908, and certainly his vision of Austen's world, its gentle graces and sharp ironies, is best expressed, as here, in colour. Furthermore, the colourful costumes and interior decor depicted in these illustrations are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, for Charles Brock and his brother Henry collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2 separate pages 4to, on lined "Cottage Point, Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania" stationery, Christmas Day 1907

      - A poetic tribute to friendship, with information on his writings. "To Alan. I have never had a friend. I have always been a little afraid of you. because I liked you and was afraid you would soon see through me, and regarding me as an opaque, substanceless [sic] shadow, pass me by. I never thought of being different from my real self. I said, 'If he is ever to like me at all, it must be with bad and all!'" Grey notes that he never cared what anyone thought of him, but that he "did care what you thought." He refers to his wife, Dolly (Lina Roth): "She is a woman and thinks me a hero, and you are a man and know that I am not." He further elaborates on his meeting Alan and becoming his friend in a very romanticized manner: "Such glimpses as I have had myself in some gray sleepless morning hour. twilight lonesome. have bewildered and terrified me. I have seen a calm, deep, star-studded pool and I have seen a maelstrom. So here's to the day I blindly broke into your office, broke in when the world was dark. the day I broke in, to find a friend." And further, "What you said. is dearer to me than to see this lion-story with Harper's imprint [referring most likely to The "Last of the Plainsmen" which was not published by Harper's]." He talks of his "struggle against darkness" made light because "hope and faith are light." The letter concludes with details of his writing. "I have written seven chapters of The Last of the Plainsmen [published 1908] since I saw you. I don't know how good it is, but I'll gamble what the desert looks and feels like. the Grand Canyon. what Buffalo Jones was. simply telling the thing as reminiscence. But the story. has taken on a new life. I seem to have a different feeling for it. I've got the desert, and the forest. the wind. the sun, all right here with me." Signed, "Well, Banzai! Old Man - Yours Zane.". "The Last of the Plainsmen," was published in 1908 by Outing.

        Scrappy temperance movement leader Carrie Nation letter, all in her hand

      Autograph letter signed "Carry A. Nation", March 17, 1907, Boston, Massachusetts, one page, 6.5" x 8.5" on plain paper. In full: "Boston Mass march 17, 1907 Dear Sir, I leave Boston tonight for Washington. As soon as you get this call at 217 D St NW. I will be there only a day or so and oblig'd (signed) Carry A Nation". The spelling of her first name is ambiguous and both Carrie and Carry are considered correct. Official records say Carrie, which Nation used most of her life; the name Carry was used by her father in the family Bible. Upon beginning her campaign against liquor in the early 20th century, she adopted the name Carry A. Nation mainly for its value as a slogan, and had it registered as a trademark in the state of Kansas.

Excepting the two double paged plates, the plates also have b/w insets of rear views of the gowns being showcased, and on the versos of five of the plates are b/w fashion details and variants. (The other plates are blank on the versos.) One of the plates is an extra plate, not printed with this issue of the Chic Parisien. The American edition of the magazine was issued monthly, with two special supplements per year, issued in March and September. The issue here is one such supplement, issued in September (undated, but the text refers to the 1907 to 1908 season). Scarce, possibly because Max Grab was a retailer and so this was in a sense a cross between a magazine and a trade catalogue. The gowns, furs, and big, bold feathered hats are elegant, luxuriant and spectacular. The clothes were intended for the wealthy ladies to wear to balls, casinos, sporting events, luncheons, shopping and other outings, and the designs were entirely directed towards beauty. There was as yet no hint of rebellion, edginess, or slumming in the creations. Yet while dressy, many of the designs have simple, flattering lines, and many of the designs looked compatible with activity -- these are not uncomfortable, constraining garments to all appearances. One sees in the models, also, that a slender figure was gaining favor; no longer was the plumpness of the late 19th c;entury being idealized. Light wear. Two tape repairs at spine tips.

        Tiroler Bauernmädchen (II). 1907.

      1907. Farbholzschnitt in 12 Farbtönen, auf Japan, links unten im Stock monogrammiert "CM" sowie handschriftlich bezeichnet, signiert und datiert "Tiroler Bauernmädchen / Original-Farbholzschnitt (CM)oser / 07. No. 28". 29,8:24,8 cm. Literatur: Kirschl HS 81 a, hier ist ein "1915" datierter und mit "No. 21" bezeichneter Abdruck als "einziger derzeit bekannter Abzug" genannt. Von größter Seltenheit!. Nach dem väterlichen Willen besuchte Moser 1891-1893 die Handelsakademie in Dresden und arbeitete bis 1896 im elterlichen Geschäft in Bozen. Nebenbei war er bereits künstlerisch tätig und wurde von F. von Defregger (1835-1921) zum Kunststudium ermuntert. 1896-1901 studierte er an der Akademie in München bei G. von Hackl (1843-1926), K. Raupp (1837-1918) und L. Herterich (1856-1932). Nach Abschluß seines Studiums führten ihn Reisen nach Deutschland, Italien, Korsika und Frankreich. 1901 schrieb er sich an der Academie Julian in Paris ein. Die Sommermonate verbrachte er in der Bretagne und der Normandie. Ãœber den Wiener Maler M. Kurzweil (1867-1916) lernte Moser die japanische Holzschnitttechnik kennen, mit der er sich von nun an intensiv beschäftige und die er bis zur Perfektion entwickelte. 1907 kehrte Moser nach Bozen zurück. In den folgenden Jahren erhielt er Stipendien und nahm an zahlreichen Ausstellungen teil. 1915 wurde er als Leutnant in den Kriegsdienst eingezogen. Nach Kriegsende beteiligte er sich an der von A. Egger-Lienz (1868-1925) initiierten Ausstellung "Tiroler Künstler" in Zürich. In den zwanziger Jahren stellte sich für den Künstler der kommerzielle Erfolg ein. Seine Farbholzschnitte waren jetzt nicht nur in seiner Heimat gefragt, sondern auch im gesamten deutschen Raum.

        Alicia's Diary with Shakespeare Criticisms

      Privately By Elliott Stock, Paternoster Row London 1907 - HB 1st Edition. The Preface by A.C.M. December 1 1906 states: 'The writer of the following Diary had no idea her words would ever be published: therefore they can only be looked upon as the artless pastime of one who was paralyzed for 18 years.

The illustrations were drawn by her sister. Blue cloth boards. Impressed edge front and back. Gilt text spine with gilt band top and bottom. Impressed decoration down spine. 20 x 13.5cm. 503 pages.

        Programmes for "Boris Godounov" and "Concerts Historiques Russes".

      Paris -1908 1907 - Octavo (28 x 22 cm). 96 pages, including 30 full-page illustrations, original wrappers. Octavo (27 x 21 cm). 66 pages, illustrated througout, original wrappers designed by Bilibin. Concerts Historiques Russes A fine example of a programme for the five symphony concerts in Paris that marked the rising star of Diaghilev and his productions that enjoyed astonishing success in Paris and world-wide for many following years. The programme included such famous pieces as Russlan and Ludmila and The Komarinskaya by Glinka, Christmas Eve by Rimsky-Korsakov, Symphony No. 2 in C minor by Tchaikovsky, the Prince Igor by Borodin .The lead singers were Marianne Tcherkassky and Feodor Chaliapin, who made a debut in Paris. Konstantine Korovin and Apollinary Vasnetsov were invited to design decorations. Moving away from the traditional stage design, which only indicated a place of action, Korovin produced sensual decorations conveying the general emotions of the performance - which was seen as a revolution. Boris Godunov A very good copy of a programme for the famous Boris Godunov scored by Modest Moussorgsky. Diaghilev's production shown at the Paris Opera was the first to be staged outside Russia. The leading role of Boris Godunov was performed by one of the most important singers in the Russian opera history - Feodor Chaliapin (1873-1938). This role became Chaliapin's signature character and a real springboard for his career.

        Wiener Werkstätte Bilderbogen Nr. 29. "Das Kletterbüblein".

      Wien, 1907 - Wien, o. J. [um 1907]. Farblithographie - Orig. Einblattdruck [ca. 24 x 16 cm]. In drei Teilen erzählte Bildgeschichte, wie ein Bub einem Mädchen zuliebe einen Baum erklimmt und abstürzt. - Zeymer (1886 - 1940), studierte nach dem Besuch der Realschule an der Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule, wo er u.a. die Architekturfachklasse von Josef Hoffmann absolvierte. Wie die meisten der Schüler Hoffmanns war er in der Folge überwiegend als Designer und Innenarchitekt tätig. Neben Inneneinrichtungen fertigte Zeymer vor allem auch Kostüme, Postkarten, Plakate, Illustrationen (darunter auch 1908 für ein Programmheft des Kabaretts „Fledermaus") und anderes mehr an. Aufgrund seiner familiären Bindungen zur Möbelfirma Niedermoser (der Bühnenbildner und Architekt Otto Niedermoser war sein Cousin) blieb jedoch vor allem das Möbeldesign Zeymers Schwerpunkt, wobei er selbst gleichfalls die Konzession für das Tischlergewerbe erwarb. Seine eigentliche architektonische Tätigkeit beschränkte sich hingegen zumeist auf kleinere Aufgaben wie Umbauten und Einfamilienhäuser. (Zitat) - Hier ein Blatt einer 19 Blätter umfassenden Serie (vgl. auch Schweiger - Brandstätter, Wiener Werkstätte Bilderbogen Nr. 11 - 29), deren Nummern 1- 10 wohl nie erschienen sind.

London: Chatto & Windus, 1907. First Edition with 1907 on the title page (missing on later issues) and 8pp of adverts at the rear of the volume. A NEAR FINE copy in original publisher's cloth blocked in blind and lettered in gilt with a colorful, bright & unrubbed circular onlay to the upper cover. A beautiful example of the first Alice book published legally without using Tenniel's illustrations when, in 1907, copyright changes led to an immediate golden age of Alice Illustration as Sowerby was soon followed by Rackham, Tarrant, Hudson, Pogány, Laurencin, and many other superb interpretive artists. The front free endpaper has a little pull to it and bears a neatly inked previous owner inscription. The binding is a little cocked. But a better example of this lovely book sans dust jacket would be hard to find.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine. Illus. by Millicent Sowerby.

Mit eighd. 5zeiliger Widm. von Sarah Bernhardt, dat. 1918. - Exlibris a. V., zwei Worte in Widm. etw. verwischt, Ebd. etw. berieben, schönes Expl. - Sarah Bernhardt (1844-1923), eine der berühmtesten französischen Schauspielerinnen: am bekanntesten ist vorallem ihre Darstellung der Kameliendame von A. Dumas, aber auch sonst ist sie als vielseitige Schauspielerin, erfolgreich sowohl in klassischen als auch in zeitgenössischen - meist französischen - Dramen. Ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer künstlerischen Arbeit - und Voraussetzung für ihren weltweiten Ruhm - waren ausgedehnte Gastspielreisen. Mit ihrer eigenen Schauspieltruppe trat sie 1879 in London auf. 1880 folgte eine halbjährige Tournee durch 51 Städte der USA. 1881 gab sie Vorstellungen in Russland, Italien, Griechenland, Ungarn, der Schweiz, Dänemark, Belgien und den Niederlanden. Sarah Bernhardt wurde gerühmt wegen ihrer schönen Stimme, der Anmut ihrer Bewegungen und wegen ihres Temperaments. Sie vertrat in Vollendung einen Theaterstil, der schon bald nach ihrer Zeit ebenfalls Vergangenheit war, einen romantischen Stil überschwänglicher Deklamation und großer Gebärden. Sarah Bernhardt starb am 26. März 1923 in Paris. Sie gilt als die berühmteste Schauspielerin ihrer Zeit und war einer der ersten Weltstars überhaupt.

KEIN REPRINT! sehr gut erhalten. -- Aus dem Inhalt: 1. Abschnitt: Theorie und Technik der kystoskopischen Untersuchungsmethode. 2. Abschnitt: Der endoskopische Befund der gesunden und kranken Harnblase. 3. Abschnitt: Die Bedeutung der Kystoskopie für die Diagnostik und Therapie der Harn- und Blasenleiden. -- Maximilian (Max) Nitze (* 1848; 1906 ) war ein deutscher Urologe und Erfinder des Cystoskops. Als Assistent am Stadtkrankenhaus in Dresden beschäftigte er sich u. a. auch mit Versuchen über die Beleuchtungsmöglichkeit innerer Hohlorgane. Allerdings gab es keine Möglichkeit zur entsprechenden technischen Ausgestaltung seiner Tests. Deshalb ging er nach Wien zu einem Instrumentenfabrikanten, der ihn bei seinen Versuchen technisch unterstützte. 1879 demonstrierte Max Nitze erstmals das von ihm erfundene Urethro- und Zystoskop in der Öffentlichkeit. Es gelang ihm, die von ihm entwickelte Methode in der Fachwelt durchzusetzen und weiterzuentwickeln. 1900 wurde er außerordentlicher Professor. Seine Veröffentlichungen über die Therapie der Blasen- und Nierenkrankheiten zeigten neue Wege auf und dienten zur Weiterentwicklung der Urologie.
