        Ispoved' [A Confession]

      Moscow: Izdanie knigoizdatel'stva, 1907. Moscow: Izdanie knigoizdatel'stva '"Posrednik", 1907. Octavo (20 × 14 cm). Original printed wrappers; [5], 6-83 pp. A very good copy, partially uncut; light foxing to wrappers; spine extremities and corners lightly scuffed; wrapper beginning to separate from text block along spine. Tolstoy's famous account of his spiritual crisis and conversion was first printed in Russkaia mysl' in 1882, but the censor immediately confiscated the entire print run. Although its publication inside Russia was legally impossible until 1906, the work was circulated illegally and printed abroad, and met with extraordinary interest by Tolstoy's readership. The publisher of the present edition, Posrednik, was founded in 1885 by followers of Tolstoy (Vladimir Chertkov and Pavel Biryukov) in order to make the writer's works available in affordable mass editions. Despite large print runs, many books published by Posrednik are rare; they were frequently read literally to pieces,and due to its religious nature, the later works of Tolstoy were removed from many Soviet libraries during the 1920s. Rare; not in KVK, OCLC. Not at the Russian State Library.

        Te Tohunga The Ancient Legends and Traditions of the Maoris

      George Routledge & Sons Ltd. ; E.P. Dutton, London New York 1907 - Fabulous folio size book with strong New Zealand interest. Lovely woodcuts throughout the book often of striking Maori designs. Cloth boards are tan brown with a fantastic Moaris mask design set into the title block on the front. Gilt title lettering on spine with further Maoris motif in gilt. Fore edge corners are a tad worn but, on the whole the book is in superb clean condition. Occasional browning/foxing throughout, more especially to prelims. Pencilled gift inscription on front free end paper reads: "To darling Puiaki from her old Tiki, 8/10/1919." This book came from a collection acquired from AWF Fuller's descendants (he was brother of the more famous military history and pioneer of mechanized warfare, JFC Fuller, although famous in his own right as a South Sea Islands expert and collector.) So the gift inscription is almost certainly in his own hand and perhaps to his wife or sweet heart. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Base Ball In Cincinnati (1/500 copies only of the first edition)

      Cincinnati: Privately Printed, 1907. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Black cloth lettered and decorated in red with design of original 1869 Red Stockings player front panel. 277 pp. Illustrated with numerous photographic plates of rare images of teams, ball parks, executives and players.. A tight, bright example, trace of rubbing to the front red stamping. Elegant vintage small bookplate front free endpaper and bookseller ticket corner of front pastedown. Many of the photographs appearing here, including both 1868-1869 images and also images of original players in later years taken especially for this work), are still found nowhere else. After outlining early, pre-professional baseball in and around Cincinnati, this work explores the building and dominance of the first openly professional team, the Red Stocking Base Ball Club, a team so powerful that it went undefeated from late 1868, through the entire 1869 season, and half of the following season. Led by one of the Father's of Baseball, manager and center fielder Harry Wright and his brother, star shortstop George Wright, this legendary group rolled over all opposition until losing an extra inning game to the Brooklyn Atlantics in June, 1870. Final section covers Cincinnati ball from 1876 to 1908. A cornerstone of any serious baseball library.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED ("FATHER"), TO HIS DAUGHTER, CLARA CLEMENS

      New York, 1907. Three pages, in ink, on three panels on folded small octavo sheet of letterhead. Ca. 275 words. Folded for mailing, otherwise very good. Three pages, in ink, on three panels on folded small octavo sheet of letterhead. Ca. 275 words. Clemens writes to his middle daughter ("O dear Ashcat"), giving an account of his visit, by yacht, to the Jamestown Ter-Centennial Fair: "...we did have a Foggy & gashly time! - after the first day of the fair, which was sunny & bright. The others deserted & fled home by rail; but Broughton & I stuck it out - resolved that we would never trust ourselves to the hated rail. We lay at anchor day after day smothered in white fog, & read, talked, smoked, yawned, gaped & cussed. (This was at Old Point Comfort). Once we went ashore & spent a couple of hours with the officers in Fortress Monroe ...." He gives an account of trips ashore, (shopping and being smitten and dumb-struck by "the most beautiful girl you could imagine...") and summarizes the first day of the Fair, including his attendance at the Maryland Governor's reception, where "I took it off his hands. It gave him a rest & he was thankful. I Knew him & his wife before." He informs her he has heard of her success with singing recitals at Elmira and Utica, where she took the "house by storm,..." suggesting somewhat off-handedly that "I suppose it is because you are Mark Twain's daughter. But anyway, it is splendid and I am glad." He closes with travel plans, and signs "With lots of love, Father."

        Qiu yu qiu feng [Memorial booklet for the executed feminist revolutionary Qiu Jin]

      [Shanghai]: Jing cun shu ju; Hong wen shu ju, 1907. 75p., slender paperback, spine panel rather chipped, edges worn, covers foxed. Rear cover has a name written in pen and a "paid" rubberstamp from a Chinese grocer in San Francisco, dated 1922. Interior pages are evenly toned but clean and unmarked. Printed on the 20th day of the seventh lunar month of Guangxu year 33 (August 28, 1907), 44 days after Qiu Jin's execution. The text, entirely in Chinese, includes several selections from Qiu's writings, but most of the content is comprised of tributes from supporters. The title, "Autumn rains, autumn winds," is taken from Qiu Jin's last words. When offered the chance to make a confession, she simply wrote "Autumn rains, autumn winds, how melancholy and baleful they render me."We find no holdings in OCLC as of October 2017, and only one record of a sale, in 2012 at a Chinese auction. Qiu Jin was raised in a relatively wealthy family in Shaoxing, Zhejiang province. In the early 20th century many progressive Chinese intellectuals traveled to Japan to study new fields of knowledge influenced by western writers, and to organize resistance to the Qing dynasty. Qiu Jin left her arranged marriage and two children to join this ferment in Japan, where she advocated the equal right of women to education, the abolition of foot binding, and marriage by choice. The photograph used in this booklet, which depicts her in Japanese dress, holding a sword, was taken during this sojourn. Upon her return to China in 1906, she worked with Xu Zihua to publish the short-lived "Chinese Women's Journal," but in addition to her public activism and teaching, she was a prominent underground organizer in the Revolutionary Alliance, recruiting women to the armed militia that sought to overthrow the Qing dynasty. After her cousin Xu Xulin was captured in the midst of planning a local revolt in Anqing, he was tortured, and ultimately confessed to plans for a major uprising. Qiu Jin was among the accomplices who were quickly identified and arrested. After two days of torture, she was beheaded. The news of a well-born, educated young woman being executed for anti-Manchu activities further inflamed anti-Qing anger in some sectors of Chinese society, as reflected by the tributes in this booklet, published when the loss was still fresh. Four years later, after the success of the Republican revolution, Qiu Jin was hailed as a martyr. She remains in the pantheon of both the Communists and the Nationalists, her exploits dramatized in numerous books, films and television shows.

      John Lane, The Bodley Head, London 1907 - With Twelve Designs in Colour by the Author. Black and white vignette on half-title, title printed in red and black, 12 coloured illustrations. First Edition. 4to. [268 x 210 x 21 mm]. 152, [8] pp. Bound in the original publisher's decorative blue cloth, blocked in yellow and black, plain endleaves, top edge stained blue (rear cover a little discoloured, slight flaking of the lettering on spine). A very good copy, inscribed on the front free endleaf: " "Silly rot, I call it" Tommy in Pinkie and the Fairies. W. Graham Robertson. Jan 1909". Pinkie and the Fairies (A Fairy Play in Three Acts) was another of Robertson's works, first performed at Christmas 1908. He is probably best known as the illustrator of the frontispiece to the first edition of Wind in the Willows, also published in 1908. Walford Graham Robertson (1866-1948) was a painter, theatre designer, writer, illustrator, art collector, authority on William Blake and friend of Walter Crane, Edward Burne-Jones, James McNeill Whistler, Ellen Terry, Sarah Bernhardt and Oscar Wilde, to name a few. He never married but was inspired to write this pageant by the infant daughter of his deceased friend, the painter Arthur Melville. The coloured illustrations are enchanting and certainly not rot.

        Portrait photograph of author Ian Maclaren, three-quarters length seated, in jacket with top hat in hand

      Philadelphia: C. Houstin Goudiss, 1907. Gelatin silver print, triple mounted, with C. Houston Goudis blindstamp and Goldensky blindstamp on mount, INSCRIBED by Maclaren beneath image ("Yours Faithfully, Ian MacLaren"). Image: 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. Fine, with some toning and edgewear to mount. Gelatin silver print, triple mounted, with C. Houston Goudis blindstamp and Goldensky blindstamp on mount, INSCRIBED by Maclaren beneath image ("Yours Faithfully, Ian MacLaren"). Image: 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. Maclaren was the pseudonym of Presbyterian pastor and Scotsman John Watson (1850-1907). He earned popular (but decidedly not critical) success in 1894 with BESIDE THE BONNIE BRIER BUSH - "The combination of sentimentality, humour, and religion in a rural Scottish setting proved a successful formula both in Britain and North America and Watson achieved instant fame" (ODNB).Maclaren also enjoyed great popularity in the United States as a lecturer-this photograph, by the prominent Philadelphia portrait photographer Elias Goldensky, captures Maclaren during his third and final American lecture tour. Often in ill-health, he would suffer a fatal case of tonsilitis during the tour and die unexpectedly in Iowa.

        Caracalla and Geta - Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema,.

      CARACALLA AND GETA: BEAR FIGHT IN THE COLISEUM, AD 203Heliogravure naar het schilderij (Opus CCCLXXXII) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema, uitgegeven in 1907 door Arthur Tooth & Sons. Linksonder gesigneerd met potlood door Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 64 x 78,5 cm.Op Caracalla and Geta staan beide broers, zonen van Septimius Severus, omringd door familieleden in de keizerlijke loge van het Colosseum. De spelen worden georganiseerd ter gelegenheid van het moment dat Septimius Severus in 203 AD de titel Caesar aan zijn zoon Caracalla verleent. Geta?s moeder is bezorgd dat haar tweede zoon niet de zelfde titel krijgt en geeft heimelijk intrigerende brieven aan een bode.De beren worden losgelaten, het spektakel staat op het punt te beginnen. De spanning in het amfitheater en tussen Caracalla en Geta is voelbaar.[De twee broers konden het slecht met elkaar vinden, kort na de dood van Septimius Severus laat Caracalla Geta vermoorden. Caracalla wordt daarmee de enige keizer over het Romeinse rijk.]Caracalla and Geta was het meest ambitieuze werk uit Alma-Tadema?s laatste jaren. Er staan meer dan 2.500 individueel geschilderde toeschouwers op. Als daar de figuren verborgen achter zuilen en guirlandes bij worden opgeteld en men dit extrapoleert naar de totale omvang van het Colosseum, klopt dit met de algemene aanname dat er zo?n 35.000 toeschouwers in het amfitheater konden plaatsnemen. De pers sprak in de tijd dat het schilderij gereedkwam met ontzag over dergelijke gedetailleerde kennis. Alma-Tadema was meer dan een kunstenaar alleen, de Nottingham Daily Guardian heeft het over de: ?Spirit of a scientist and archaeologist [but] not an artist!?Prijs: 4.150,- (incl. lijst).

        Dekorationsmalereien fur das Burgerhaus.

      - Stuttgart, Julius Hoffmann [1907?]. Folio 49x33cm, loose as issued in publisher's portfolio, decorated boards, printed label, (cloth spine detaching but lining and hinges firm enough); title and 24 chromolithograph plates printed by the firm Emil Hochdanz of Stuttgart. Title with some creasing round the very edges, two plates with insignificant crease in one corner. A handsome pattern book of modern painted interiors by the young designer, later expressionist painter and printmaker. Maybe this is all a bit tasteful but it is quite smart. If Lange has stuck to handsome tasteful interiors, perhaps gone a bit more Bavarian folk art, he might not have lost his professorship in textile design come 1933 and ended up in the Degenerate Art bin.

        Grant of arms, donated by Alfred Scott Scott-Galty, Garter, Principal King-of Arms and William Henry Weldon Esq. Norroy to George Buckworth-Herne-Soame, formerly Harrison (1872-1912).

      British Empire, London, d.d. 18 November 1907. Vellum charter, good condition. 60x52 cm. Manuscript text and calligraphy, with 4 hand coloured coats-of-arms amongst which that of Harrison. With the orginal signatures of the mentioned officials and their wax seals in two disc shaped copper casings. Encased in a made to fit oblong wooden case, with metal closing mechanism and clothed with red linen, decorated in gold with EVIIR initials and crowns. George Day Harrison (1872-1912) obtained a Royal licence which is included in this lot to change his name to Buckworth-Herne-Soame. The Harrison coat of arms had therefore to be changed into a combination of the Harrison and Buckworth-Herne-Soame coats of arms. This grant of arms officially changes the coat of arms. George Buckworth-Herne-Soame was apparently (chief) engineer of the South Potteries Water Works Company in Staffordshire although the grant of arms mentiones that he is lieutenant colonel of the Staffordshire Artillery Volunteers. The coat-of-arms bears the family motto: de mieulx je pense en mieulx. The grant explains that Harrison lives in Radford House in the parish of Stone in de county of Stafford. He married Evelyn, the second daughter of Sir Charles Buckworth-Herne-Soame Baronet late of Sheen in the county of Surrey. H97

        Is Mars Habitable? A Critical Examination of Professor Percival Lowell's book "Mars and Its Canals", with an Alternative Explanation

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1907. First edition. 8vo. xii, 110, (2 advertisement) pp. Publisher's green cloth, gilt rules to the spine and upper board, gilt lettered to the former and with a circular title device incorporating the author's initials to the latter, the early pictorial bookplate of a Pat Murray to the front pastedown. Frontispiece and a plate. Some very mild rubbing to the extremities, a very good copy. Wallace's public refutation of Percival Lowell's theory of Martian canals and with it the possibility of life forms and even an advanced civilisation having existed on the red planet, the latter's book having been first published the year before. The work can be seen as an extension of Wallace's previous book "Man's Place in the Universe" of 1903, in which he argued that Earth was the only place in the universe that could support life due it to being the only planet which could sustain water in liquid form.
