        Les Mystères [et prophéties] du Monastère du Zouqouala. (manuscrit) - [= The mysteries of the Zoukouala monastery and its prophecies].

      (Grenoble?) s.d. (ca. 1946) [based on his transcription made on Mt. Zoukouala in ~1908] - 15 feuillets la plupart format 20 x 25 cm, bel état général, rarissime. - - Swiss engineer Jean-Adolphe Michel, director of the Ethiopian Posts (directeur général des P.T.T.) from 1901 (?) and later state council (conseiller d'état) of Ethiopia, working in Harar and Adis Ababa till 1917, discovered and transcribed these prophecies during his visit of Mount Zoukouala monastery in 1908 (?). Accompanied by some ethnographical notes, annotations, calculations and explanations, Michel himself left 15 manuscript sheets on this subject, probably composed (between 1945-1948) to prepare for an article/essay in a french magazine. After events of second world war actually matched well with the Zoukouala predictions (really mentioning 1939 + 1945 in particular), Michels attention was brought back to these prophecies, he copied decades ago. The script features further cataclysmic predictions up to the 21st century, so Michel possibly then decided, matter may be worth publishing. As it apparently remained unpublished, this unique manuscript seems to be the only surviving source on this mysteries and prophecies nowadays. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        History of the Sixth New York Cavalry (Second Ira Harris Guard) Second Brigade - First Division - Cavalry Corps Army of the Potomac 1861 - 1865 (with) A Cabinet Card Photograph of the Regiment's Major General, Thomas C. Devin

      Worcester, Mass.: The Blanchard Press, 1908. 575 pages; black and white illustrations; including portrait of Brevet Major-General Thomas C. Devin, General Charles L. Fitzhugh, Lieutenant-Colonel Duncan McVicar; map of Alsop's Field, map of Gettysburg, illustrations of groups of portraits; maps of Five Forks, more; with a useful ready-reference page at front, acting as a short index; bound in the original goldenrod-yellow cloth, with the regimental arms illustrated on front board; some tips, edge-wear, soiling, to binding; contents clean and in very good condition; (with) a cabinet card half-length portrait photograph by Howard of Greenport, Long Island N.Y. of Thomas Casimir Devin (1822 - 1878) Union Army cavalry officer in command of the 6th NY for many of its engagements during the Civil War including Antietam and especially at the battle of Gettysburg: "... It was under Buford that Devin's star shone brightest. Devin had already acquired a well-earned reputation as a disciplinarian and field tactician as colonel of the Sixth New York, which was commended by observers as "the best-drilled Regiment in the service." As one of Buford's two brigade commanders, Devin now became known as "Buford's Hard Hitter" and Buford's "Old War Horse." He took his brigade into action under Buford in major cavalry engagements at Brandy Station (9 June 1863) and Upperville (21 June 1863). It was at Gettysburg (1-3 July 1863) that Devin performed his best-known service for Buford. On the first day, as Buford's cavalry division attempted to delay the advance of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia into Gettysburg so that the infantry of the Army of the Potomac would have the time to deploy and defend the town, Devin dismounted his Second Brigade and spread them out on the north side of Cashtown Road (on the northwest side of Gettysburg). Together with the dismounted troopers of the First Brigade, this thin screen of dismounted cavalry slowed the advance of superior numbers of Confederate infantry just long enough to permit the Army of the Potomac to occupy the high ground south and west of Gettysburg and thus ensure a Union victory over the next two days of the battle...." (Allen C. Guelzo in the ANB); approx. 4 1/4" x 6 1/2" size overall with the mount; studio imprint on back; photograph titled in the image; faded, mount a bit soiled; in good condition and a good accompaniment to the regimental history..

        Albert Weisgerber: Neuestes von Serenissimus (Originalzeichnung)

      1908 - Tusche (Pinsel), Bleistift und Deckweiß auf Papier. 37,0 x 31,0 cm. Rechts unten signiert und datiert. Veröffentlicht: Jugend. Jahrgang 13 (1908), Heft 21, Seite 504. Text: „Se. Durchlaucht war ein so leidenschaftlicher Jäger, daß Er, so oft in seinem Hoftheater der „Freischütz“ gegeben wurde, es sich nicht nehmen ließ, von der Hof-Loge aus die Wildsau zur Strecke zu bringen.“ Provenienz: Galerie Joseph Fach, Frankfurt am Main. Privatsammlung, München. Biografie: Albert Weisgerber (1878 St. Ingbert - 1915 Fromelles (Frankreich)). Nach einer Ausbildung zum Dekorationsmaler in Frankfurt am Main kommt Albert Weisgerber 1894 nach München, wo er zunächst die Kunstgewerbeschule und später die Kunstakademie besucht. 1898 wird er in die Klasse von Franz Stuck aufgenommen, in der zu diesem Zeitpunkt auch Hans Purrmann, Wassily Kandinsky und Willi Geiger studieren. Als Mitarbeiter der Zeitschrift Jugend, die zwischen 1897 und 1913 über 500 seiner Zeichnungen, Aquarelle und Gemälde publiziert, findet Weisgerber Anschluss an Schwabinger Künstler- und Intellektuellenkreise. Die Jugend verschafft Weisgerber nicht nur regelmäßige Einkünfte und steigert seinen Bekanntheitsgrad, sondern treibt auch seine künstlerische Entwicklung voran. Dank finanzieller Unterstützung ihres Herausgebers Dr. Georg Hirth hält er sich zwischen 1905 und 1906 für mehrere Monate in Paris auf, wo er sich intensiv mit den Werken der Impressionisten sowie der Plakatkunst Henri de Toulouse-Lautrecs und den Gemälden Paul Cézannes auseinandersetzt. Daneben hat der Austausch mit den Künstlern des „Cáfe du Dome“, allen voran der mit Henri Matisse, nachhaltigen Einfluss auf Weisgerbers Bildsprache. Zurückgekehrt nach München verarbeitet Weisgerber die in Paris empfangenen Eindrücke zu einem individuellen und von raschem Wandel geprägten Stil. Darin finden sich sowohl Elemente des Impressionismus als auch Anklänge des Expressionismus, die der Künstler anhand vielfältiger Motivgruppen erprobt. Sie umfassen Porträts und Akte ebenso wie Kaffeehaus- und Cabaretszenen oder landschaftliche und religiöse Sujets. Die Vermittlung von Impulsen der französischen Malerei nach Deutschland macht Weisgerber zu einem wichtigen Wegbereiter der Moderne und bringt ihm zunehmende Anerkennung ein. 1911 organisieren der Galerist Franz Josef Brakl in München sowie der Kunstsalon Emil Richter in Dresden die erste Kollektivausstellung seiner Werke, der 1912 weitere Ausstellungen bei den Kunsthändlern Paul Cassirer in Berlin und Ludwig Schames in Frankfurt folgen. Als Gründungsmitglied und Erster Vorsitzender der „Neuen Münchner Secession“ setzt sich Weisgerber für die Verbreitung und Akzeptanz der Kunst seiner Generation ein. Ihre erste Ausstellung, die unter anderem Werke von Max Beckmann, Paul Klee und Oskar Kokoschka zeigt, findet von Mai bis Oktober 1914 statt. Bei ihrer Schließung ist Weisgerber, der unter den modernen Künstlern zu den frühesten Opfern des Ersten Weltkriegs zählt, bereits als Soldat eingezogen. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Handbook of the Medical Services of Foreign Armies. Parts I?VI.

      London: HMSO,, 1908-11. 6 volumes small octavo (164 × 103 mm). All perfect bound in the original buff textured paper wraps laid down on light archival card. All wraps restored as noted, no loss of text from the upper wraps, part I lacks entire lower wrap, ink-stamps of the Inspector of Medical Services to the upper wraps, light toning, contents clean and sound, a very good set. First editions of these uncommon official publications. Print-runs were 2,000 for each part, but there are just a scatter of complete sets institutionally (10 recorded on OCLC). The individual volumes deal with France, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia, Italy, the Netherlands, and Belgium. They represent a revision of the Handbook of the Medical Organisations, chiefly for War, of Foreign Armies, which was compiled by Lt.-Col. Frank Howard in 1902, which gave brief coverage to around 20 nations. "In consequence of the Geneva Convention ? 1906, a knowledge of these services has become of greater importance than previously to officers of the army, more especially to officers of the Royal Army Medical corps, and to all who may be associated with that corps in time of war" (introduction). Lieut.-Col. Macpherson, the compiler of this new series, was later to become colonel commandant of the Royal Army Medical Corps, having been deputy director-general medical services during World War I. During the war he was mentioned in despatches nine times, and received honours from France, Italy and the United States, picking up the sobriquet "Tiger Mac" on account of his ferocious energy and attention to detail. He was the author of the official medical history of the war. These copies from the library of the Royal Army Medical College with their ink-stamps to the wraps.

        Midsummer-Night?s Dream, A

      1908. An Almost Perfect Setting for Rackham's Devic Imagination"Edition de Luxe Signed by Arthur RackhamBound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. SHAKESPEARE, William. A Midsummer-Night?s Dream. With Illustrations by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, 1908. Edition de Luxe, limited to 1,000 numbered copies signed by the artist, this being copy No. 370. Large quarto (11 1/4 x 9 inches; 286 x 229 mm.). [6], 134, [1, blank], [1, printer's slug] pp. Forty color plates mounted on brown art paper, with descriptive tissue guards. Bound ca. 1960 by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in three-quarter dark blue morocco over blue cloth boards ruled in blind. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, top edge gilt, others uncut, cockerel end-papers. Early ink signature on recto of front blank, some mild toning to preliminary leaves. A near fine copy in an attractive binding."Within twelve months appeared Shakespeare's A Midsummer-Night's Dream, De la Motte Fouqué's Undine, and the Grimm brothers' Fairy Tales, all very different in quality and feeling, as demanded by the texts, but all of extremely high quality. The Dream was, of course, an almost perfect setting for Rackham's devic imagination -- perhaps only bettered by the opportunity of The Tempest -- with the result that some of the fairies, elves and goblins he created for this play are among his finest colour images, and almost all the plates echo perfectly the mysterious interweaving of lightness and depth in this great work. Many of the formal plates are exquisite, whether they depict the principal events of the main theme of the story, such as the translated Bottom with his ass-head mocked by tree sprites, or the night-rule of Titania's haunted grove, those incidents within the subsidiary action, with details hardly dreamed of by Shakespeare, such as the gnomish knife-grinder in a motley group of fairies. Some of the floriated headings for the Dream are the finest of Rackham's line at the time, as for example the heading vignette for Act One, Scene One, which with typical Rackham irrelevance spreads its tendrils over the page, and into the text, ignoring the fact that the setting is supposed, according to Shakespeare, to be the Palace of Theseus, and throwing us immediately into a tangle-wood Rackhamerie, with mice, pixies and a sleeping maiden." (Fred Gettings. Arthur Rackham, pp. 117-123).Latimore and Haskell, p. 32. Gettings, p. 177. Riall, p. 87.

      (London): Doves Press, 1908. Johnston, Edward. Two large octavo volumes. 192; 200pp. One of 250 copies. Printed in red and black by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson and Emery Walker. This collection of Browning's poems explores the many aspects of love between men and women. The colophon is beautifully inscribed in red "Flourished by Edward Johnston. Decr. 1908." The table of contents shows calligraphic flourishes in blue, green, and red by the master calligrapher. Larger flourishes decorate headings throughout the book, and these conform to the copy described in Tidcombe's bibliography. This set shows the Doves Press at its most ornate, the severe typography being softened to the subject by Johnston's lovely decorations. This title is also notable for being the last book from the Doves Press bearing Emery Walker's name on the colophon. In the original gilt-stamped vellum by the Doves Bindery. Vellum shows natural toning, but is even across both volumes. One leaf in vol. 1 shows even toning, else a fine set. (Tidcombe DP15).

        Gustav Klimt und die Kunstschau 1908 (Gebundene Ausgabe)von Agnes Husslein-Arco (Herausgeber), Alfred Weidinger (Herausgeber)

      Prestel Verlag, 1908. Mit der Ausstellung ?Gustav Klimt und die Kunstschau 1908? l?sst das Belvedere in Wien, eines der bedeutendsten Museen Europas, die Kunstschau 1908 anl?sslich ihres 100-j?hrigen Jubil?ums wieder aufleben. Damals wie heute bilden Gustav Klimts Werke den H?hepunkt der Ausstellung, darunter sein ber?hmtestes Gem?lde ?Der Ku?, das 1908 noch w?hrend der Laufzeit der Schau vom Belvedere angekauft wurde. Die Kunstschau 1908 wurde von zahlreichen K?nstlern um Gustav Klimt gemeinsam mit der Wiener Werkst?tte und der Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule entwickelt und gilt heute als Quintessenz der fr?hen Wiener Moderne. Ein Gro?teil der urspr?nglichen Exponate, die damals in 54 R?umen auf dem rund 6500 m2 gro?en Ausstellungsgel?nde als Gesamtkunstwerk inszeniert wurden, wird in rekonstruierten R?umen und Nachbauten gezeigt, z.B. der ?Plakatraum?, der ?Raum 50? der Wiener Werkst?tten und der von Koloman Moser gestaltete Raum f?r Gustav Klimts Hauptwerke. Mit der ausf?hrlichen Vorstellung der wichtigsten Aspekte und zahlreichen Abbildungen gelingt es dem Katalog, die ?Kr?fterevue ?sterreichischen Kunststrebens?, wie Gustav Klimt die Kunstschau 1908 in seiner Er?ffnungsrede nannte, wieder lebendig werden zu lassen. Alfred Weidinger ist Vize-Direktor des Belvedere Museums in Wien. Er studierte Kunstgeschichte in Wien und arbeite kurz danach als freier Autor. Unter seinen Publikationen ist das im Prestel Verlag 2007 erschienene Buch Gustav Klimt. Klimt ist hier nur im Hintergrund, aber doch der Macher dieser Austellung. Jeder / Jede die Spa? am Jugendstil hat, kommt bei diesem Buch- sprich Katalog- auf seine Kosten. Allein das "lose" Durchbl?ttern hat Stunden gedauert und uns viel Freude bereitet.Sprache deutsch Ma?e 240 x 320 mm Gewicht 3590 g Einbandart gebunden Kunst Musik Theater Malerei Plastik Ausstellungskataloge K?nstler Belvedere Schloss Wien Bildende Kunst Klimt, Gustav Kunstschau 1908 Wien Vienna Museen ISBN-10 3-7913-4225-8 / 3791342258 ISBN-13 978-3-7913-4225-2 / 9783791342252

The pages are detached from each other, bruisings of the wrappers, small bits of wrappers missing. Very rare first edition of Tumanyan's fairy tale. Ovanes Tumanyan (1869-1923) was the first armenian author of children's stories of the time. Books like this are considered the classics, 'Shunn and katun' was reprinted several times afterwards. The translation of this fairy-tale to Russian was done by Vladislav Khodasevich. Three cartoons (1938, 1955, 1975) were based on this story. Tumanyan is known as the founder of the literary circle 'Vernatun' (founded in 1899 in Tbilisi) which united the prominent Armenian writers of the time. During the years of genocide he helped a lot of Armenians for what he was awarded the title 'The poet of all Armenians'.

      Hoepli, Milano, 1908. 3 v. (XI 358 p. [24] c. di tav. [6] c. di tav. ripieg. [5] c. geogr. ripieg.; VII 603 p. [74] p. di tav.; XIX 286 p. [40] p. di tav.) 25 cm tela editoriale. Il Duca degli Abruzzi vi piantò il tricolore il 18 giugno 1906 alle 9 e mezzo del mattino. Dove avevano fallito esploratori inglesi come Henry Stanley riuscì Luigi Amedeo di Savoia che già aveva raggiunto i 5.849 metri del Sant'Elia in Alaska guidato la spedizione al Polo Nord e si preparava ad assaltare il K2. Cent'anni or sono il suo obiettivo era un massiccio innevato nel cuore dell'Africa al confine tra Uganda e Congo. I ghiacci perenni che svettano sulla linea dell'equatore alimentano i laghi Alberto e Vittoria e il «grande padre» Nilo: quelle che il geografo Tolomeo nel secondo secolo dopo Cristo aveva battezzato «Montagne della luna» mentre il popolo Bakonjo chiama Ruwenzori («Monti della pioggia» perché sempre avvolti dalle nubi) sono la mamma dell'Africa.Tra poesia e nebbie al culmine di una spedizione durata tre mesi giusto un secolo fa il figlio del primo Duca d'Aosta conquistò i 5.119 metri della vetta dandole il nome della regina Margherita come la cima del Monte Rosa. Cent'anni da celebrare. Il governo ugandese e l'ambasciata italiana hanno organizzato convegni all'università Makerere di Kampala una mostra fotografica e antropologica allestita dal Museo della montagna di Torino esposta contemporaneamente nel capoluogo piemontese e nella capitale africana un film - festival e una spedizione che sulle orme di quella del 1906 scalerà le stesse 17 cime superiori ai 4.500 metri. Vi partecipano anche Amedeo d'Aosta discendente del Duca degli Abruzzi rappresentanti del Cai degli alpini e delle guide di Courmayeur tra cui Giuseppe Petigax bis - nipote (e omonimo) dell'inseparabile accompagnatore di Luigi Amedeo di Savoia.

        Midsummer-Night’s Dream, A

      London: William Heinemann, 1908. - "An Almost Perfect Setting for Rackham's Devic Imagination"Edition de Luxe Signed by Arthur RackhamBound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. SHAKESPEARE, William. A Midsummer-Night’s Dream. With Illustrations by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, 1908. Edition de Luxe, limited to 1,000 numbered copies signed by the artist, this being copy No. 370. Large quarto (11 1/4 x 9 inches; 286 x 229 mm.). [6], 134, [1, blank], [1, printer's slug] pp. Forty color plates mounted on brown art paper, with descriptive tissue guards. Bound ca. 1960 by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in three-quarter dark blue morocco over blue cloth boards ruled in blind. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, top edge gilt, others uncut, cockerel end-papers. Early ink signature on recto of front blank, some mild toning to preliminary leaves. A near fine copy in an attractive binding."Within twelve months appeared Shakespeare's A Midsummer-Night's Dream, De la Motte Fouqué's Undine, and the Grimm brothers' Fairy Tales, all very different in quality and feeling, as demanded by the texts, but all of extremely high quality. The Dream was, of course, an almost perfect setting for Rackham's devic imagination -- perhaps only bettered by the opportunity of The Tempest -- with the result that some of the fairies, elves and goblins he created for this play are among his finest colour images, and almost all the plates echo perfectly the mysterious interweaving of lightness and depth in this great work. Many of the formal plates are exquisite, whether they depict the principal events of the main theme of the story, such as the translated Bottom with his ass-head mocked by tree sprites, or the night-rule of Titania's haunted grove, those incidents within the subsidiary action, with details hardly dreamed of by Shakespeare, such as the gnomish knife-grinder in a motley group of fairies. Some of the floriated headings for the Dream are the finest of Rackham's line at the time, as for example the heading vignette for Act One, Scene One, which with typical Rackham irrelevance spreads its tendrils over the page, and into the text, ignoring the fact that the setting is supposed, according to Shakespeare, to be the Palace of Theseus, and throwing us immediately into a tangle-wood Rackhamerie, with mice, pixies and a sleeping maiden." (Fred Gettings. Arthur Rackham, pp. 117-123).Latimore and Haskell, p. 32. Gettings, p. 177. Riall, p. 87.
