        The Writings of Benjamin Franklin

      New York: Macmillan, 1907. First edition. Fine. 10 volumes bound by J. W. Meyer in contemporary dark green morocco over cloth boards. Spines titled in gilt with geometic details in the spine compartments, raised bands, top edges gilt, marbled end papers. In all a lovely Fine set with only the most trivial wear to the bindings. Unread and largely unopened throughout (with pages still sealed). Uniform spines, but gilt on book 2 brighter than the others. Each volume with a different frontis portrait of the author. One of America's foremost founding fathers, a famed scientist, philosopher, and inventor. Over the course of his long and varied career, Franklin would serve as minister to France and Sweden, and as the first Postmaster General of the United States. By his late twenties, Franklin had already achieved significant renown as an author, with the publication of Poor Richard's Almanac and by his 50s he had made important contributions to the study of electricity and demographics. (Science would fascinate Franklin his entire life - and he would make significant discoveries and inventions until his death.) Franklin also played numerous instruments and, interestingly enough, is thought to have been the first recorded chess player in the thirteen colonies. During the revolution, Franklin served on missions to England in addition to being one of Pennsylvania's delegates to the Continental Congress. He would go on to become ambassador to France and later was again appointed a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. Franklin is also the only founding father to have his name affixed to the Declaration of Independence, the treaty of Alliance with France, The Treaty of Paris, and the US Constitution. Fine.

After more than twenty-five years of proving his mettle in India and Afghanistan, Ian Hamilton was appointed foreign attaché to the First Japanese Army during the outbreak of the Russo-Japanese War in 1904. Although his movements in the field were severely restricted, Hamilton’s descriptive powers as a writer turned this war diary into one of the most acclaimed and widely read military memoirs of the period. Hamilton’s Scrap-Book was hailed by Britannica as "a book which by reason of the interest of its subject, the charm of the author’s style, and and the combination of war experience and of imagination which inspired his judgments and criticisms, at once took rank in Europe as a modern military classic." Both volumes of this fine set include copious illustrations and fold-out maps, and many remain to this day in remarkable condition. This set with the ownership signature of Sir Donald Currie, and noted as being from his steam yacht Iolaire. Further there is a tipped 1920 typed label of his daughter, Margaret (Currie) Mirrielees, which also notes the volumes as ex-libris the S.Y. Iolaire. Currie was a ship owner, member of Parliament and noted philanthropist. His political career began in 1875 when, due to his knowledge of South African affairs gained as an owner of the Union Steamship Company, Lord Carnarvon, the colonial secretary, entrusted him with the conduct of negotiations with President Brand of the Orange Free State and President Burgers of the Transvaal Republic regarding the occupation of the Kimberley diamond fields. Currie entered Parliament in 1880 and in 1886 he broke on the home rule question with Gladstone, whom he had hitherto followed. He represented West Perthshire until his retirement from parliament in 1900. He remained on intimate social terms with Gladstone, who was on several occasions between 1883 and 1895 his guest with other distinguished persons on one or other of his ships for summer cruises.

        The Twentieth Century Retractor, Chess Fantasies and Letter Problems: Being a Selection of Three Hundred Problems by Mrs W.F. Baird. Enriched with Shakespearean Quotations.

      4to., original publisher's red cloth lettered in gilt on spine with triple gilt panels and central gilt block on upper board reproduced in blind on lower board, all edges gilt. Floral watered silk endpapers. Printed in red, blue and black. Portrait frontispiece. Spine slightly darkened small ink name stamp on rear endpaper, otherwise a very good copy of an elegantly produced book. First edition, "[One] of the most elegant chess books ever to appear" (Hooper & Whyld 27). Edith Baird was a well-known figure in the chess world during the early 20th century. She was a regular contributor to British Chess Magazine and leading newspapers of the day, and established herself as a problem setter of the highest calibre. In her career she "composed more than 2000 problems ... noted for their soundness" (Hooper & Whyld), with remarkably few errors detected in her body of work. Her first work, Seven Hundred Chess Problems, also published by Henry Sotheran in an edition of 500 copies in 1902, presented 700 classic chess problems, each handsomely presented and finely printed with a board diagram in red and blue. Baird was also one of the first to create multi-move retractor problems, chess puzzles in which the solver must work backwards, taking back a specified number of moves before a forward mating move can be performed. This second work, The Twentieth Century Retractor, is one of the earliest collections of such problems. Each of the 300 problems in this book is handsomely presented and introduced by a Shakespearean quotation designed to enrich the solving experience as well as provide hints towards the solution. "Above each problem throughout the volume will be found the name of the paper in which it originally appeared, and to each position Shakespearean quotations have been given. In some cases the quotations apply to the position as presented on the diagram, and, in others, to the positions presented throughout the solution."

        Der Papagei, der Mamagei und andere komische Tiere. Heitere Verse für verspielte Kinder aller Jahrgänge. Die kleine Reihe. llustrationen von Günther Simon.

      66 unpaginierte Seiten Kl.-8 quer, gebundene Ausgabe, illustrierter Pappband das Buch lediglich am oberen Buchrücken minimal bestossen, ansonsten sauber und frisch, auf dem Titel von der Autorin signiert. Mascha Kaléko (gebürtig Golda Malka Aufen, * am 7. Juni 1907 im galizischen Chrzanów/Polen - + am 21. Januar 1975 in Zürich) war eine deutschsprachige, der Neuen Sachlichkeit zugerechnete Dichterin. Was für ein Krokodilemma Ein weiterer Band aus der schön gestalteten Reihe "Gedichte für neugierige Kinder". Mascha Kaléko ist zeitlos gut und ansprechend Ein unbeschwerter, humorvoller Zugang zu Sprache Mascha Kaléko zählt zu den eindrücklichsten lyrischen Stimmen der deutschsprachigen Poesie des 20. Jahrhunderts. Im Berlin der zwanziger und dreißiger Jahre erlebte sie ihren kometengleichen Aufstieg - binnen kurzer Zeit galt sie als Philosophin der kleinen Leute-, ihre Gedichte wurden in vielen Zeitungen abgedruckt, 1933 erschien ihr Lyrisches Stenogrammheft-, das den endgültigen Durchbruch verschaffte. Die Nazis erteilten der jüdischen Dichterin jedoch schon bald Schreibverbot, 1938 emigrierte sie mit ihrer Familie nach New York. Mascha Kaléko, die in den fünfziger und sechziger Jahren in Deutschland nochmals ein wenig von dem alten Ruhm erreichen konnte, war sich Zeit ihres Lebens bewusst, dass sie Lyrik für den Alltag, Gebrauchsgedichte- verfasste. Ihre Gedichte sollten sich reimen, der heiter-melancholische Grundton fand bei vielen Leserinnen und Lesern Anklang. In den fünfziger Jahren schrieb sie zwei Gedichtzyklen für ihren Sohn Steven. Der Papagei, die Mamagei und andere komische Tiere- sind ihm und verspielten Kindern sämtlicher Jahrgänge- gewidmet. Verena Ballhaus hat diese Texte mit dem ihr eigenen Witz illustriert, sie holt die leise Ironie hervor und poliert sie in ihren Zeichnungen gekonnt aufs Allerschönste. Das Buch ist erstmals 1961 im Fackelträger Verlag erschienen.

        International Competition of the Carnegie Foundation. The Palace of Peace at The Hague. The 6 premiated and 40 other designs chosen by the society of architecture .

      - London, Jack 1907. Folio (49x38cm); eight parts loose as issued in publisher's printed wrappers and cloth portfolio (the portfolio a bit marked and bumped); 76 plates (eight colour) - elevations and plans. An excellent set. A luxurious production. According to the report judging took several days, votes were close and there was some argument before Cordonnier's baroque wedding cake was given first prize, largely, the report suggests, due to its sympathy with surrounding buildings. Of the now revered competitors, Otto Wagner got fourth prize and Berlage and Saarinen were further down the lists. Despite stylish aspects of their designs and the idiosyncratic splendour of Debat's Indo-Mayan stupa - which looks to me like it could have inspired Burley Griffin's parliament house for Canberra - it does seem, from this distance, that the judges got it right. I'm sure they'll all sleep easier in their graves knowing that. Cordonnier's building has a joyous optimism that matches the crusading zeal for world peace of patron Carnegie and any number of seemingly sensible exponents of world unity at the time. Wagner's building is an opulent museum or theatre, Saarinen's ideal for a mausoleum, Berlage's a Byzantine basilica, and most of the others studied lumps of classical monumentalism. Cordonnier's building did suffer paring down to meet budget and lost some of its airy charm but still ended up closer to the original design than many other competition winners.

        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.
