Complete with 52 color lithographic plates, loose in decorative paper-covered board portfolio, 15 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches.

Plates IV, VI, XXX and XXXII are the most severely affected (see images); on the other extreme many plates are scarcely affected. Most damage could be termed singeing to a page border. Short repaired tears to lower corner of two plates. The images themselves are clean and there is no odor. A portfolio of beautifully executed Art Nouveau patterns for wall decor by Paul Grohmann, the colors exceptionally rich and the designs striking. Many of the panels hint at the Deco stylistics emerging in upcoming decades. Exceptionally fine color lithography evident in every plate. 42 plates feature a single image while 10 feature two images. .

        Het Bretagner Paard [Breton Horse] [Pl. 18]

      [Antwerp: Zutphen, Schillemans & Van Belkum, 1907]. Colour-printed lithograph by J.L. Goffart, after a painting by Otto Eerelman on heavy textured card. Very good condition apart from some chipping at the extreme edges. 17 1/2 x 23 1/4 inches. A rare and finely rendered portrait of a noble draft horse, from the limited Dutch edition of Eerelman's 'Paardenrassen Kunstalbum'. Originating in Brittany during the Middle Ages, the popular Breton horse was prized for its hardiness, strength and stamina. Bred in three types, the Postier Breton, the Heavy Draft Breton, and the Corlay or Central Mountain Breton, the Breton is still one of the most widely used draft horses in France. A skilled draftsman, watercolourist, and painter, Otto Eerelman was born in the Netherlandish village of Groningen in 1839, where he studied with the Dutch history painter J.H. Egenberger at the Minerva Academy. He later studied in Paris in 1867 and in Brussels from 1874 to 1876. After living in The Hague and Arnhem for several years, he returned to his hometown, where he became an instructor at the Minerva Academy. Although widely reputed for his paintings of the royal family, particularly Queen Wilhelmina, Eerelman was primarily known for his detailed renderings of horses. In 1907, Zutphen, Schillemans & Van Belkum published a Dutch edition of Paardenrassen Kunstalbum, a portfolio of chromolithographed plates based on paintings by Eerelman, which depict different breeds of draft horses. Mennessier de la Lance, Essai de bibliographie hippique donnant la description détaillée des ouvrages publiés ou traduits en latin et en français sur le cheval et la cavalerie, avec de nombreuses biographies d'auteurs hippiques, p. 667.

        THE SECRET AGENT

      1907. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1907. Original light blue-grey cloth decorated in orange, white and black. First American Edition of Conrad's great novel of espionage (filmed by Alfred Hitchcock as "Sabotage"). The American edition has over a hundred variations in text from the English edition, since Methuen sent early uncorrected proofs to Harper as copytext. Harper printed 4,000 copies of the book, but initially sold only about two-thirds of them. Most of the others did not sell until after 1914 (when CHANCE reawakened interest in Conrad); these later copies have "Printed in the U. S. of America" inkstamped onto the title verso (not present in this copy). This American edition also has one of the most un­usual bindings among his works -- portraying the Fate Atropos about to cut the thread of life.~This is a very good-plus, perhaps near-fine copy, with scarcely any wear other than slight rubbing at the spine ends (the spine is a little sunned, but less than usual). We find this to be the very toughest American edition of Conrad to find in truly collectible condition -- due to the fact that it is typically found with its spine so dull as to be illegible. Here, however, the orange print on the spine is quite legible. Cagle A12b; Con­nolly Modern Movement #15.

        A Narrative of the Missions of the United Brethren among the Delaware and Mohegan Indians from Its Commencement in the Year 1740 to the Close of the Year 1808

      Cleveland: The Burrows Brothers Company, 1907. Limited Edition #101 of 160. 1/2 leather. Fine. No dust jacket as issued. Exceedingly Rare. A Near Fine Copy. Darkening to spine. In Good Original Slipcase. 640 p. Includes: illustrations, diagrams, maps. During the American Revolutionary War, a contingent of Delaware Christian Indians, led by John Heckwelder, an assistant to Moravian missionary David Zeisberger, founded the last of five missions to occupy the Tuscarawas Valley between May 3, 1772 and September 8, 1781. The mission was located immediately adjacent to the west bank of the Tuscarawas River. Eighteen months later, British led Indian soldiers forcibly removed to the Upper Sandusky region all 400 of the Indian converts then living in the Tuscarawas Valley at the New Schoenbrunn, Gnadenhutten, and Salem missions. Seventeen years later, Zeisberger returned to the Tuscarawas Valley and founded his last mission at Goshen on October 4, 1798. Born in Bedford, England, March 12, 1743, Heckwelder immigrated to America with his mother and father at the age of eleven. In 1762, at the age of nineteen, he accompanied Christian Frederick Post to the Tuscarawas Valley in an aborted attempt to found an Indian mission among the Delaware. Their efforts were interrupted by the Pontiac uprising and Heckwelder barely escaped death from hostile Indians opposed to the project. At the request of David Zeisberger in 1771 Heckwelder entered the missionary service, was ordained in 1778, and served until 1786. In 1788 he was appointed the agent in Ohio for the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel and served until 1810. In 1798 he cooperated with Zeisberger at the Goshen mission and founded the white settlement of Gnadenhutten. Howes 380

        Theodore Roosevelt

      London: , 1907. Image size: 22 x 17.3 cm. Mount size: 45.7 x 27.8 cm. Framed in a hand finished black wooden frame. Monochrome photogravure tipped onto a white wove mount. Produced under the personal supervision of Coburn on his own copper plate press. Light toning to mount otherwise in excellent condition. Proof before letters (no printed plate number or facsimile signature). Theodore Roosevelt titled to the foot of the mount in Coburn's hand. Printed on slightly heavier paper and tipped on to a much larger mount than that published in "Men of Mark". Coburn's first book of portraits "Men of Mark" was published in 1911 (it was followed some years later by More Men of Mark) features 33 portraits of artists, thinkers and writers such as George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, Henry James, Auguste Rodin, Henri Matisse, Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, Frank Brangwyn, William Butler Yeats, Robert Bridges etc. Coburn's introductory text provides a running commentary on his pursuit of his subjects and their eventual capture on film. 'To make satisfactory photographs of persons it is necessary for me to like them, to admire them, or at least to be interested in them. It is rather curious and difficult to exactly explain, but if I dislike my subject it is sure to come out in the resulting portrait. I had thought of using 'Men of Genius' as the title for this book, but Arnold Bennett objected seriously, saying, very modestly, that he did not consider himself a man of genius, but merely a working author, and absolutely refusing to join the throng unless I changed it, so I told him that if he would give me a better one I would use it. 'Men of Mark' is his alternative. '

        Chamber Music

      London: Elkin Matthews, (1907). First edition, first issue of Joyce's first book. The first printing consisted of 509 copies; however, fewer than fifty copies of the first binding appear to have been issued and perhaps fewer than fifteen copies are extant. Chamber Music, Joyce's first book, was published only through the considerable efforts of Arthur Symons, whom he had met through Yeats in 1902. Symons not only moved heaven and earth to find him a publisher who wouldn't require a subsidy, but he also wrote an extremely favorable review of the book in the Nation. Spine lettering rubbed away, some wear to extremities, small marginal dampstain affects the first few leaves, sporadic tiny tears to page edges. Overall a very good copy in publisher's green cloth.

        [Golf] Drawing for July, 1907 issue of "Success" Magazine

      [New York: 1907]. Pen and ink on heavy paper, signed right "R. Emmett Owen" . On verso, an "Art Dept. Memo" states that the drawing was done in March, 1907 to be "engraved" for and "used in" the July, 1907 issue. 10 1/4 x 20 1/2 inches. A wonderful golf drawing by R. Emmett Owen for "Success" Magazine R. Emmett Owen (1878 - 1957) began his artistic career as an illustrator, having pen and ink drawings accepted by Life Magazine when he was 19. The present work may be said to come from his mature work as an illustrator. In 1910, he began to devote himself to the beautiful impressionistic landscapes for which he is primarily known. One is impressed by how effortlessly Owen composes a rather thrilling scene. Rather than have us view the handsome young golfer's drive from the gallery, Owen places us directly in front of him, ducking as it were. He and his attractive companion, both quite serious, stand on top of a slope which falls away on either side suggesting that the young, earnest couple stand on top of the world. Golf established itself in America in the late 1880s and continued to grow in popularity with both men and women, though through most of history here in America, it has been an upper class recreation. So the handsome young couple directly before us really do in many ways stand on top of the world.
