        Les Livres à Figures Vénitiens: Études sur l'art de la Gravure sur bois à Venise de la fin du XVe Siècle et du Commencement du XVIe.

      Leo S. Olschki, Florence, and Henri Leclerc, Paris, 1907-1914. - First edition, three parts in six fascicules, complete. No. 249 of 300 numbered copies. Colombier quarto (15-3/4 x 11-3/4 in., 40 x 30 cm). Publisher's printed wrappers with hand-colored devices on front covers, top edges rough cut, others uncut, housed in four clamshell boxes covered in brown raw silk with brown morocco gilt-lettered spine labels. With 74 inserted plates, including photogravures and hand-colored plates with descriptive tissue guards, and over 2,000 text illustrations. Printed on heavy handmade wove papier du Marais at Typographie de Frazier-Soye (Alexandre Brande), the photogravure plates by Demoulin. Collates: Première partie, tome I (Ouvrages imprimés de 1450 à 1490) (1907), 505 pp.; Première partie, tome II (Ouvrages imprimés de 1491 à 1500) (1908), first fascicule, 256 pp., second fascicule, pp. 257-500; Seconde partie (Ouvrages imprimés de 1501 à 1525) (1909), first fascicule, 344 pp., second fascicule, pp. 345-680; Troisième partie (Les Origines et le Développement de la Xylographie à Venise) (1914, published by Charles Gérard, librarian to the Prince, after the latter’s death), 372 pp. and 10 pp. Supplement; plus 74 plates inserted throughout the six fascicules. Spine losses, splits and restorations, covers toned and soiled, minor toning at extremities of uncut edges, some spine stitching broken with resultant loose quires (but still square), in overall unusually fine condition, a wonderful set, particularly scarce in the original wrappers. This massive bibliography (the boxes 17 x 15 x 12-1/2 in. together and over 67 lbs.) was assessed at the Grolier Club’s 1981 exhibition “2000 Years of Bibliography” (taking its place among the 169 signal entries from Callimachus of Alexandria to the NUC Pre-1956 Imprints) as the most luxurious bibliographical publication of its century and one of penetrating scholarship. “Prince d'Essling, grandson of Andrea Masséna, Napoleon’s ablest marshal, and son of a passionate book collector, Prince François-Victor, assembled a vast collection of early Venetian woodcut books which served as the basis for his bibliography of Venetian illustrated books 1450-1525 (preceded by the description of a xylographic book and followed by a summary list of some noteworthy later volumes). It is the most exhaustive bibliographical study of illustrated books of any place, country, or period hitherto published and set new standards for descriptions.” (Breslauer, Bernard H., and Folter, Ronald, Bibliography, its history and development, New York: Grolier Club, 1984, no. 144, pp. 186-7) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE TALE OF TOM KITTEN

      1907. London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1907. Original grey-green paper-covered boards with cover pictorial onlay. First Edition of Beatrix Potter's eleventh book. She wrote it during 1906, not long after buying Hill Top Farm in Lakeland; it is the garden there that provides the setting for the tale of Tom Kitten, his sisters Mittens and Moppet, and their mother Tabitha Twitchit. Jemima Puddleduck also makes an appearance; she was to be the focal point of Beatrix Potter's very next book.~The first three printings were all during 1907, and were so dated; according to Linder the three are "believed to be identical." This copy is in grey-green paper-covered boards; others were in reddish-beige, or in decorated cloth (no priority). This is a fine, bright copy of this very fragile volume, with scarcely any wear at all. Linder p. 427; Quinby 13.

        Hugo Charlemont - Seis am Schlern (signiert und datiert 1907)

      - Aquarelle von Hugo Charlemont - Seis am Schlern 1907, signiert und datiert, ohne Rahmen, Format 39,5 x 27,5 cm. - Dieses Exemplar stammt aus dem Vorlass eines Botschafters i. R., aus dem Familienbesitz. - Bankverbindungen in Österreich und Deutschland. --- Hugo Charlemont (1850 in Jamnitz, Mähren - 1939 in Wien) war ein österreichischer Maler. - Hugo Charlemont entstammte einer Künstlerfamilie. Er war der Sohn des Miniaturmalers Matthias Adolf Charlemont und der Bruder der Maler Eduard Charlemont (1848 - 1906) und Theodor Charlemont (1859 - 1938). Auch Hugos Tochter Lilly Charlemont (1890 - 1975) war Künstlerin. - Er studierte ab 1873 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste und war Schüler von Eduard von Lichtenfels. Bei Arthur William Unger erlernte er Drucktechnik und die Kunst der Radierung. Später bildete er sich bei seinem Bruder Eduard und bei Hans Makart künstlerisch weiter. Charlemont machte einige Studienreisen in die Niederlande und hielt sich mehrere Jahre in Venedig auf. Hugo Charlemont ist das Vorbild des Malers van Helmond in Robert Musils Roman Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften. Alice Charlemont, die ältere Tochter Hugo Charlemonts, kehrt im Roman als Clarisse wieder. -- Bei seinen Zeitgenossen galt Hugo Charlemont als vielseitiges Talent. Er widmete sich den verschiedensten Bildthemen, wie der Landschafts-, Stillleben-, Tier-, Genre- oder Porträtmalerei. Neben Ölbildern schuf er auch zahlreiche Aquarelle und Gouachen. Am bemerkenswertesten erscheinen seine Landschaften, die in einem impressionistischen Stil gehalten sind. Von den Neuerungen der Modernen Kunst ließ sich Charlemont allerdings nicht beeindrucken; er blieb auch im 20. Jahrhundert seinem Stil treu. - Er ruht in einem ehrenhalber gewidmeten Grab auf dem Döblinger Friedhof (Gruppe 23, Reihe 12, Nummer 13) in Wien. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        La Massage.

      - Heliogravüre, zweifarbig, seitenrichtig und vergrößert von Pellet, auf feinem Japan, unten mittig eigenhändig rot monogrammiert. Darstellungsgröße 22,7:14,6 cm, vollrandig. – Mit kleinem Papierabriß im Unterrand links. Literatur: Mascha 591; Ramiro 351. - Abgebildet in: L’Art et le beau, 1907, Nr. 6, S. 123; G. Kahn, Das Weib in der Karikatur Frankreichs. Stuttgart, 1907. Rops war einer der bedeutendsten Graphiker und Illustratoren seiner Zeit. Nach einer Erziehung durch Privatlehrer ging der Sohn eines Textilfabrikanten an das Jesuitenkolleg in Namur. 1849 wurde er vom Kolleg verwiesen, in diesem Jahr verstarb sein Vater, ging dann an das Königliche Athenäum in Namur, schrieb sich jedoch auch gegen den Willen seines später verhaßten Vormunds an der dortigen Académie des Beaux-Arts ein, wo er Aktkurse besuchte. 1853 setzte er sein Studium an der Universität in Brüssel fort, wo er zudem das freie Atelier Saint-Luc besuchte. Ab 1856 gründete er zusammen mit seinem Freund Ch. de Coster (1827-1879) die Zeitschrift L'Uylenspiegel, journal des débats littéraires et artistiques, für die er bis 1857 Illustrationen schuf, meist Karikaturen. Nach der Verheiratung mit Charlotte Polet de Faveaux, der Tochter des Gerichtspräsidenten von Namur, lebte er abwechselnd in seiner Geburtsstadt und im Sommer auf Schloß Thozée bei Mettet, wo ihn auch zahlreiche Künstlerfreunde besuchten; später kamen noch Paris und Brüssel als ständig wechselnde Aufenthaltsorte hinzu. 1868 war er Mitbegründer der „Société des Beaux Arts". 1869 verliebte er sich in die Schwestern Léontine und Aurélie Duluc, zwei junge Modeschöpferinnen, mit denen er ab 1874 in Paris zusammenlebte und auch Kinder hatte. Reisen unternahm er in den nächsten Jahren an die Nordsee, nach Skandinavien, Ungarn und Spanien, in die Vereinigten Staaten und nach Nordafrika. 1888 wurde ihm der Orden der französischen Ehrenlegion verliehen. Rops hatte vor allem großen Erfolg als Illustrator, zuerst mit den Werken de Costers, dann arbeitete er auch für Baudelaire, mit dem er sich befreundete, sowie für J. Barbey d Aurevilly, St. Mallarmé, P. Verlaine, J. Péladan u.a.

        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

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

        Christian Science Church Manual

      [SAMUEL CLEMENS] FREDERICK W. PEABODYRemarkable document! A copy of the Christian Science Church Manual, signed by its owner, Peabody, with handwritten notes by Mark Twain, who used it in preparing his famous 1907 polemic against Mary Baker Eddy and the church she founded.Book signed: "Frederick W. Peabody/Notations by Mark Twain" on title page, 95 pages, 5¼x7¼, hardcover. Church Manual of the First Church of Christ Scientist by Mary Baker G. Eddy, The Christian Science Publishing Society, Boston, Massachusetts, 1899, 11th Edition. Label affixed to front cover: "Church Manual of the First Church of Christ/Mark Twain's Copy With Annotations". This book, which belonged to Peabody, has been annotated by Clemens, the noted author and lecturer who was known for his efforts to debunk frauds - especially those whom he deemed as religious charlatans. FREDERICK W. PEABODY has been described as a "detached or critical" biographer of Mary Baker Glover Eddy. SAMUEL L. CLEMENS, popularly known as "Mark Twain", directed his scorn toward both Mrs. Eddy and her religion in his 1907 book, Christian Science. The book attacked Eddy, whom he maintained could not have written Science and Health, the book that served as the basis for her beliefs, as well as the basic tenets of her new religion, which are presented in the book offered here. MARY BAKER EDDY (1821-1910) had published the book, Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures, in 1875. In 1892, she reorganized her church in Boston, renaming it The First Church of Christ, Scientist, commonly known as The Mother Church. The Manual of the Mother Church, first published in 1895, had its final revision in 1908, the year Eddy founded "The Christian Science Monitor". She had established The Christian Science Publishing Society, the publisher of this book, in 1898, the year before this edition was published. Signature page lightly soiled, glue stains at blank left margin. Cover stained at upper edge, worn at upper and lower edges of spine. Overall, in fine condition.

Dent and Co. first published 'The Ingoldsby Legends,' with about one hundred illustrations of mine. This book has met with a very satisfactory reception, but the publisher's have felt with me that, with the addition of new drawings, a careful overhauling would make it worthy of publication in a more important form, in which greater prominence could be given to the illustrations by better and larger reproductions, including a greater number of illustrations in colour."To this end the following has been done:"The frontispiece and the coloured illustration facing page 508 have been specially drawn, and all the other illustrations in colour have been worked on to a considerable extent, and specially coloured for this edition. A few illustrations in the earlier edition have been omitted and in their place have been added those facing page 254 and on pages vi, 25, 37, 316, 320, and 333."Many of the pen drawings have been reconsidered and worked on again - those which have been worked on to any great extent being now signed with both dates, 1898 and 1907. Of the rest, reproductions on a larger scale have been made in all but a few cases, and the text has been revised and entirely reset for this edition' (Rackham, Prefatory Note).Latimore and Haskell, pp. 30-31.

        Official programme for "Concerts Historiques Russes".

      G. de Malherbe for Moreau frères Paris 1907 - Octavo (28 x 22 cm). 96 pages, including 30 full-page illustrations, original printed wrappers;; very slightly sunned A fine example of this thick, richly illustrated programme for Diaghilev's second "export campaign" of Russian art and culture to Paris. The year before he brought to Parisians, who at that time were unaware of even most famous names of Russian early or modern painters, a collection of the most characteristic examples of Russian art. This time he presented to them five symphony concerts at the Paris Opéra, in which celebrated artists and virtuosi took part. This "Russian season" marked the rising star of Diaghilev and his productions that enjoyed astonishing success in Paris and world-wide in the 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. Apollinary Vasnetsov and the great Mir Isskustva artist Konstantin Korovin 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 Kochno, Diaghilev and the Ballet Russes (NY & Evanston, 1970). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Picturesque Natal

      G.B. & Co., Cape Town 1907 - Oblong folio; 235 x 567 mm. No place, but Cape Town or London; no date but in or before 1907. The publisher most likely is the firm of George Budricks from Cape Town, known as "G.B." before 1910, but it also might be Giesen Brothers & Co., known as G.B. & Co., (1902-1909) from London. Apparently also some other albums, similar to this one and all scarce now, which appeared with black and white photographs only, were published by the same company. The book has a gift inscription dated July 1907, so that it is sure that the book was not published after that date. Original publisher's decorated cloth with a photograph of a harbor laid in, surrounded by a washline border, with remains of a clasp at the fore edge and all edges gilt. The condition of the binding and the laid in photograph is poor with dents and creases in the top board and a tear in the right part of the photograph from top to bottom (please see picture #1). Also it is not tight. The back board is in a good condition. This book has no title page and also the only copy we could trace, in the library of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, is lacking the title page as well, so that it probably was never issued. The plates in the UKZN copy are in black and white. The collation for (the contents of) this book is as follows: (1) Durban: 1 leaf, i.e. 2 pages of text, 7 leaves of panoramic views, 7 leaves with 4 plates each. (2) Pietermaritzburg: 1 leaf, i.e. 2 pages of text, 2 leaves of panoramic views, 5 leaves with 4 plates each. (3) Colenso: 1 leaf, i.e. 2 pages of text, 2 leaves of panoramic views, 1 leaf with 4 plates. (4) Ladysmith: 1 leaf with a panoramic view and the text printed on the reverse side. Unlike the binding the contents of this copy are in an excellent condition with some very minor dampstaining in the far outer margins of a few leaves, but no other defects. Moreover in this copy all plates (photogravures) are coloured by hand. Both the plates and the text printed on very heavy paper of an excellent quality. [Attributes: First Edition]

Edward Morgan Forster (1879-1970), English novelist, is known best for his ironic and well-plotted novels examining class difference and hypocrisy in early 20th-century British society; he was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature thirteen different years.
