        Landhäuser [Gebundene Ausgabe] Hermann Muthesius (Autor)

      Mann (Gebr.), Berlin, 1907. Das architektonische Werk von Hermann Muthesius, der 1907 zu den Mitbegründern des Deutschen Werkbundes gehörte, hat in den letzten Jahren immer mehr an Bedeutung gewonnen. Seine Landhäuser sind mit ihren wohlgeordneten Gärten Inseln der Ruhe und Geborgenheit. Hohe Kamine, weit heruntergezogene Dächer, tief in den Laibungen sitzende Fenster bestimmen den unverwechselbaren Charakter dieser Gebäude. Muthesius hat nicht die englischen Formen nachgeahmt, sondern seinen Häusern die Art zu wohnen, das Flair des Äußeren gegeben, wie es in England üblich war. Merkmale, die diesen Häusern noch heute eigen sind und sie zu etwas ganz Besonderem machen, wie es in der Architektur nur ganz vereinzelt zu finden ist. Die Wiederauflage der ›Landhäuser‹ bietet die Möglichkeit, sie in Ruhe betrachten zu können, die noch bestehenden zu besichtigen, sich ein Bild von ihrem speziellen Charme zu machen und dazu Muthesius' eigene Kommentare zu lesen. Autor: Hermann Muthesius (1861-1927) war Architekt und Architekturschriftsteller. Als Attaché der Deutschen Botschaft in London (1896-1903) hatte er Gelegenheit, sich mit dem Wesen der englischen Wohnkultur vertraut zu machen. Muthesius gehörte zu den Gründern des Deutschen Werkbundes und errichtete für dessen Ausstellung 1914 in Köln die Halle der Farbenschau. Bedeutend sind seine Landhausbauten.

Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7") issued in yellow wrappers with black lettering to spine and front wrapper. (Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5284) First edition.There were 4 famous Carlsbad tournaments, under the excellent supervision of Victor Tietz, president of the Carlsbad chess organization. the first one in 1907 (August 20 - September 17) did not have Lasker or Tarasch, but the younger generation (Rubinstein, Nimzowitsch, Vidmar) did establish itself and the middle-aged (Maroczy, Schlechter, Teichmann, Marshall, Janowski) had to make room for them. Rubinstein (15) won ahead of Marcoczy (14 1/2), Leonhardt (13 1/2), Nimzowitsch (12 1/2), Schlechter (12 1/2) and Vidmar (12). This work by Marco and Schechter, is a treasure house of insights, ideas and annotations. (Divinsky) The authors have created a masterpiece of chess literature. The book not only presents the games with unusually detailed notes, it also portrays the mood and feeling of the tournament - the atmosphere, the personalities and the myriad of creative talents and hidden foibles at work in each game. Marco's round introductions make us feel that we are there, evoking in us just the right frame of mind to fully appreciate the games that follow. Marco annotated games 1 through 151 and game 206; Schlechter provided notes to games 152 through 205 and games 207 through 210. (Karlsbad 1907 International Chess Tournament, Caissa editions)Condition:Edges chipped, some soiling, spine ends chipped, else a good to very good copy of a scarce chess item.

      Reykjavík, Iceland: Sigurdur Kristjánsson, 1907. Snorra Sturlusonar, aka Snorri Sturluson [1178-1241]. Þetta er ekki tvítyngd útgáfa. Skrifað í íslensku aðeins, ekki á ensku. This is not a bilingual edition. Written in Icelandic only, not in English. Modern Icelandic, via Old Icelandic, is derived from Old Norse, the language in which the Edda was recorded. This book is divided into the following sections: Formáli (Editor's preface); Prologus (Prologue); Gylfaginning (Tricking of Gylfi, or, Gylfi's empowerment); Skáldskaparmál (Language of poetry); Háttatal (102 stanzas divided into three sections); Nafnatal (Index); and Skyríngar Vísna (Notes). Approximately 7 x 4.5 inches. Originally issued in paper wrappers, and later bound in half leather of a light saddle-tan color, with crisp brown-stamped title and date to the spine, and with handsome marbled paper hardboards. Leather appears to be niger (goatskin) but may be morocco (calfskin). Unbumped spine head and tail and with sharp corners. An exceptionally clean and handsome binding, a pleasure to hold in one's hands. Text block firmly bound in. The original wrappers are not bound in. Attractively deckled page edges. VII and 429 numbered pages of text. Simple B&W decorative head-pieces. Just a hint of age toning to the pages. Small semi-crease to the upper corner of the last few pages, trivial. Else an impressively clean copy. Rated a Very Good Plus copy in a Near Fine custom binding. Rare in any condition. With thanks to Anthony Faulkes for the following: "Snorri's authorship is unequivocally confirmed... Whether he also wrote the commentary... is much less certain. His overall purpose in compiling the Edda [was] as a handbook for young poets. [A]s a result of Snorri's work there was a great awareness of poetic theory in late medieval Icelandic poets... As a composer of praise-poetry for the Norwegian court, Snorri is almost at the end of the tradition, and his aim of revitalizing the activity was not realized... Though Snorri is now celebrated mainly for his prose writing, particularly Heimskringla, but also for his mythological work in Gylfaginning and Skáldskaparmál, his contemporaries seem to have thought more highly of him as a poet."

        Famous Hypothetical Question in the Trial of Harry K. Thaw

      1907. First Edition . JEROME, William Travers and GARVAN, Francis P. The Famous Hypothetical Question in the Trial of Harry K. Thaw for the Murder of Stanford White. [New York]: Boehm & Rathbone, (1907). Oblong quarto, original green reversed calf, yapp edges, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. $1500.Limited first edition, one of 250 copies, with marginal illustrations and facsimiles on every page.Presented as a lavishly-illustrated “Statement of the Facts,” this work, written by the District Attorney, Jerome, and an Assistant District Attorney, Garvan, uses court transcripts to form a narrative about Harry K. ThawÂ’s murder of Stanford White and the subsequent trial. Henry K. Thaw, a millionaire heir, married Evelyn Nesbit, a young New York showgirl who had previously been involved with acclaimed architect Stanford White. Plagued by jealousy, Thaw repeatedly beat and raped Nesbit in an attempt to erase any memory of the prior relationship. Then, in 1906, at a Madison Square Garden premiere, Thaw shot Stanford White three times at close range, without provocation. At trial, ThawÂ’s lawyers offered the “dementia Americana” defense, based on a made-up psychological condition said to afflict “chivalrous American men bent on protecting their wivesÂ’ virtue” (ANB). After the first jury was unable to reach a verdict, the second jury acquitted Thaw on the grounds of temporary insanity, making this case one of the most perplexing and controversial of the 20th century. Number not written in space on limitation page. Harvard Law Catalogue, 1050. Minor foxing to frontispiece and title page, moderate rubbing to extremities, as usual. A near-fine copy. Very scarce.

        Resultados de ensayos de abono. Ejectutado por la Estación de ensayos de agricultura Darmstadt, sacado del folleto "Abono de nitrógeno y neto rendimiento"

      Paul Parey, Berlin 1907 - Folio (15 x 19 1/4"). 12 loose plates, as issued. Original gilt-stamped burgundy cloth portfolio, with gold lettering to front cover. This complete set of 12 colored photographic reproductions documents Professor Dr. Paul Wagner's field experiments with nitrogen fertilizer at the Darmstadt Agricultural Experiment Station in the years 1901 to 1906. The goal of Dr. Wagner was to show that plants need nitrogen to grow healthy stems and leaves. Although nitrogen is the most abundant element in the air we breathe, that form of nitrogen cannot be used by plants. Nitrogen contained in fertilizer, on the other hand, is readily taken up by plants. The photographs featured in this portfolio compare plants and vegetables grown with and without nitrogen fertilizer. Each print measures 11 1/2 x 10 1/8", and is pasted onto a captioned heavy cardstock (size: 14 5/8 x 18 5/8"). Spine rubbed and slightly frayed along edges. Lower left corner of plate 11 chipped (not affecting lettering or the image). Captions in Spanish. Portfolio in overall good- to good, plates in good+ to very good condition.

        Dessins für die Wand. (Cover title: Serie A. Grohmann Maler in Dresden. Dessins fur Die Wand 52 Farbige Tafeln).

      Leipzig. Gilbers'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung (Eugen Twietmeyer). No date. Ca. 1907. Complete with 52 color lithographic plates, loose in decorative paper-covered board portfolio, 15 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches. An extremely scarce title; however compromised by fire damage to covers and the extremities of a number of plates although not impacting the images themselves. 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.

        Fine portrait photograph, signed and dated (Leopoldine Victoria, 1884-1966, Princess, daughter of Alfred Duke of Edinburgh and Saxe-Coburg, wife (1909) of Alfonso, 5th Duke of Galliera, grandson of Isabella II and cousin of both Alfonso XIII and Queen Ena)

      1907 - showing her full length in a magnificent dress with the train spread out in front of her, holding a bouquet of flowers, 11½" x 8¼", no place, In 1902, Princess Beatrice had a romance with Russian Grand Duke Michael, the younger brother of Tsar Nicholas II, and at that time the heir presumptive to the Imperial Throne. However she was prevented from marrying the Grand Duke as the Russian Orthodox Church forbade the marriage of first cousins. In November 1903, Michael wrote to Beatrice telling her that he could not marry her. Beatrice was then rumoured to be going to marry Alfonso XIII of Spain, but this proved to be a false rumour also as he married her cousin Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg in 1906. It was at their wedding that Beatrice met a cousin of King Alfonso, Alfonso de Orleans y Borbón, Infante of Spain, 5th Duke of Galliera. The Spanish government objected to an infante's proposed match with a British Princess who, unlike Queen Victoria Eugenie, had not agreed to convert to Roman Catholicism: the King was obliged to make clear that, should the wedding take place, the couple would have to live in exile. Nonetheless, Beatrice and Alfonso married in a Roman Catholic and Lutheran ceremony at Coburg on 15 July 1909. The couple settled in Coburg, until, in 1912, Alfonso and Beatrice were allowed to return to Spain, and his rank of Infante was restored. In August 1913 Beatrice was received into the Roman Catholic Church.

        SCAPEGOATS OF THE EMPIRE the Story of the Bushveldt Carbineers

      Melbourne: D. W. Paterson Co. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1907. Second Edition. Hard Cover. 240pp; + 2 pages of press reviews, with 6 of the 8 black and white photographic illustrations (lacks "Frontispiece" and "The Graves of Morant & Handcock"). Found in terrible condition, this has been restored retaining all the original cloth covering that was salvageable, the spine being the worse affected, it is now a presentable volume. "Scapegoats of the Empire" by George R. Witton was first published in June 1907 and although it was reprinted at least twice that year, it is today an extremely rare book with very few copies in existence outside major libraries. This is because there is still some mystery surrounding the circumstances of the books publication. Stories persist that the Australian government of the day were so nervous that the books contents reflected badly on Lord Kitchener (who was then one of the foremost heroes of the Empire) that they caused all copies of the book to be seized from D. W. Paterson, the original publishers and printers, prior to its publication. Another rumour abounded to the effect that the government bought up copies as they were published in order to prevent the truth from getting out and, more prosaically, it has also been suggested that there was a fire in the publishers warehouse in Melbourne which destroyed all copies. Digital images available on request. ; 190 x 125mm; 240 pages .

        Fine Imperial Cabinet Photograph by J. C. Schaarwächter, signed 'Victoria I R' and dated by the Empress (Empress, 1858-1921, first Wife of Kaiser Wilhelm II, 1859-1941)

      1907 - under a fine image of her children, Crown Prince Wilhelm (1882–1951), Prince Eitel Friedrich (1883–1942), Prince Adalbert (1884–1948), Prince August Wilhelm (1887–1949), Prince Oskar (1888–1958), Prince Joachim (1890–1920) & Princess Victoria Louise (1892–1980), Wilhelm is seated in the centre with his sister in a white dress on his lap and his brothers stand around them, 8½" x 5¼", no place, (Berlin), Xmas Given to Ethel Howard, governess, 1895-1898, to the Kaiser's sons. Miss Howard was greatly loved by the Empress, her ladies and the boys, but despite her enjoyment of the work the constant strain of royal protocol, extra duty and no holidays took its toll and she left after two and a half years in their service. The Empress, her ladies and the boys kept in touch for several years. See Miss Howard's 'Potsdam Princes' (London and New York, 1916).
