        Visit (By Command of His Majesty the King) of his Excellency the Prime Minister of Nepal to H.M.S. "Dreadnought", Friday, June 19th, 1908.

      Eyre and Spottiswoode, Ltd, 1908]., [London - A commemorative volume ('Not for Publication') issued to accompany the Nepalese Prime Minister's visit to HMS Dreadnought on exercise in the English Channel. The superb photographs depict: The Dreadnought, a submarine (4 plates: beached; on the surface; in the act of diving; submerged), a torpedo boat destroyer (2 plates: 'going 30 knots', 'going 36 knots'). The Nepalese deputation witnessed a demonstration of firing from the Dreadnought and of the deflection of torpedoes with its safety nets. Dreanought, pride of the British navy, launched in 1906 was a revolutionary battleship which stimulated the Anglo-German arms race and gave its name to an entire class of heavily armoured craft. It was widely publicised as part of British naval propaganda and shown-off to numerous foreign visitors. The Nepalese Prime Minister was the Maharaja Sri Teen Chandra Shamsher Jang Bahadur Rana (1863-1929), one of three nephews who had ordered the assassination of their uncle Maharaja Ranodip Singh Kunwar in the Nepali coup of 1885.Two years later, Dreadnought was at the centre of an embarrassing episode in which several members of the Bloomsbury Group (including Virginia Woolf) led by Horace de Vere Cole masqueraded as an Abyssinian royal party on a similar state visit, inspecting the ship in full costume, talking among themselves in Latin and Greek and exclaiming 'Bunga Bunga!' at every appropriate opportunity. They narrowly escaped arrest. 8vo (192 × 120 mm), pp. 5, [15] (including final blank leaf), 7 original photographs (mounted) each with tissue guards bearing printed captions, folding chart to pocket at rear. Original blue calf, gilt, with Royal arms, naval device and title, watered silk endpapers. Spine very slightly rubbed, but a fine copy.

        Manuscrits autographes inédits] Grammaire Irlemande (langue imaginaire)

      1908 - 56 pp. in-8 et 2 pp. in-4 sous deux cahiers et en feuilles, sans date [ca 1908 ?]. Grammaire très complète d'un langue imaginaire : alphabet, modifications consonantiques, le nom et ses déclinaisons (plutôt complexes), l'adjectif, le verbe, pronom personnel et possessif, "particules logistiques et syllogistiques", subordonnées. On trouve même des exercices, la toponymie des villes françaises et un vocabulaire anatomique ! Superbe illustration du pouvoir conceptuel et de la précocité de l'esprit (facétieux) de Pichon, qui allait plus tard donner, avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, la grammaire de la (vraie) langue française la plus complète et la plus complexe à ce jour. Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Pierre Gatier- ice skating in the Bois de Boulogne, 1908.

      Pierre Gatier,  ice skating the Bois de Boulogne - "Grand patinage au bois - Valseurs"Ets met aquatint gemaakt in 1908 door Pierre Louis Gatier. Met potlood gesigneerd, gedateerd en betiteld. Uitgegeven in een oplage van 50 stuks. Afm.: 34,8 x 49,4 cm.Tijdens de Belle Epoque trok Tout Paris in de winter naar het Bois de Boulogne. Men kon er schaatsen in stijl. De New York Times berichtte: "During the Summer season the promenade of the fashionable world is the Bois de Boulogne, the Chanps Elysées having been given up to the carriageless million. But no one would have ever dreamed, perhaps, that the wood was to become, in the dead of Winter, a place as of much attraction as in the heat of Summer. In the centre of the wood the two artificial lakes which have an extent of nearly a mile, are now covered with a firm sheet of ice, and on it may be seen thousands of skaters of both sexes. To the Parisians this is a novel scene, and you can well imagine that the Bois at once became the centre of attraction."'Gatier (1878-1944) verwierf bekendheid met z"n marine schilderijen en werd daarnaast gevierd om z"n scènes van de Parijse nachtclubs en society.Literatuur: Felix Gatier "Catalogue Raisonne de L'Oeuvre Gravé"', nr. 41Prijs: € 2.950,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        SHIKI NO HANA: FLOWERS OF THE FOUR SEASONS.

      Kyoto 1908, Yamada Unsodo. Accordion folded, 9 of 10 volume. set, covers worn, chipped, contents very good, clean, sound,. ca. 19 x 28 cm., prints open to ca. 37.5 x 18 cm., woodcut. printed in color by hand on hand-made paper. R A R E. ONE OF JAPANS MOST STUNNING & COMPLETE COLOR FLORALS Co-authors Suzuki Sonoichi and Nakano Sonoaki. A most superb example of the best in Japanese period polychrome woodblock printing. Per Bartlett, "The work was published just a cent- tury after it was begun. It is so extensive and deals with so many more plants than the conventional "flowers of the four seasons" of most artists that it is botanical as well as artistic in conceptions. The artist Sakai [1761-1828] served in the Imperial court and was the son of a Daimyo of Himeiji in Harima province. He painted this work from living specimens, and was assisted by Suzuki who supplemented the work. Upon Sakai's death, the it was continued and finished by Nakano [1833-1892]. He rounded out the work to contain some 1000 examples, then it was published for the first time in 1908. The work is so extensive that it could be consid- ered a Japanese flora if it were not entirely unclassified and without text except for a table of contents. The work contains a profusion of beautiful color flowers as well as fruits and fruiting trees, illustrated in large Oban size. Due to the exceptional beauty of the color prints, complete copies of this work are exceptionally difficult, many have been broken and individually framed. Lacks the winter single volume, the best illustrated volumes are spring, summer and fall, winter is the smallest group. Set as is. See H. Bartl- ett: JAPANESE BOTANY DURING THE PERIOD OF WOODBLOCK PRINTING pp.243-4 exhibit 103 & figure 94. See L. Brown: BLOCK PRINT- ING AND BOOK ILLUSTRATION IN JAPAN for details on Sakai and his son et al, pp 60-61. P. Laurence: A DICTIONARY OF JAPAN- ESE ARTISTS devotes considerable space to him on p.47. Sakai published two important books on Korin. By and large a most impressive and beautifully illustrated botanica japonica. Color scans can be sent by email.

        A Midsummer-Night's Dream (Signed Ltd.)

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Co, 1908. First American edition. Very Good. A Very Good copy, complete as issued, with all 40 tipped-in color illustrations and tissue guards (although one tissue guard detached). Signed by Rackham on the limitation page. Lacking the silk ties, as usual. In the publisher's white cloth binding with some of the gilt rubbed & dulled, some colored over in ink. Internal contents are generally in attractive condition with minor separation within the page block, leaves adjacent to the illustration leaves toned and a couple leaves with short tears. One of our favorite Rackham productions, combining Shakespeare's wonderful play with Rackham's whimsical illustrations in a lovely edition. Arthur Rackham was one of the great illustrators of the early 20th century, a period which is referred to as the "golden age" in British book design. His works were produced in both limited and mass market editions as there was a large market for ornately illustrated books before the First World War. Rackham used a unique style, thought to mix European and East Asian influences, that involved both pen and India Ink as well as watercolor. His work was displayed all over Europe - and received awards at International Exhibitions in Milan and Barcelona and Rackham would influence heavily many illustrators, especially those of children's books, who came after him. "Rackham's illustrations to Grimm, Hans Andersen or Poe show him at his most imaginative and observant of human nature, while his gnomes, fairies and gnarled anthropomorphic trees in Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens or A Midsummer Night's Dream represent his more fantastic side.... He was - and remains - a soloist in front of an orchestra, a player with the responsibility to interpret and add a personal lustre to great works with variations of infinite subtlety and grace." ["Arthur Rackham: A Life with Illustration," by James Hamilton, Pavilion Books, Ltd., London, 1990]. Very Good.

This charming set covers the aesthetics & methods of how to establish the exterior and interior of a proper tea-room [Cha-shitus]. Great attention is devoted to the in- terior and its design, the kind of alcove [Tokunoma], the objects to be displayed include ancient Chinese bronze and ceramic vessels, the selection and admiration of hanging sc- rolls, tea pot, warmer and cups, flower-arrangements, furni- ture, incense & incense burners, delicacies to eat, exterior views of the tea-room. Volume one begins with the location of The Tea Association of the Eastern Mountains nestled in the vicinity of a Buddhist monastery and an offering to the Gods upon establishment of the new tea-room, interior views. Volume two: interior views, garden tea-ceremony, scroll ap- preciation and viewing. Volume 3: interior views, how to ar- range the tea-room, vistas to the tea garden, vertical and horizontol scroll viewing & arrangement. Volume 4: overview of the Buddhist temple and monastery area, ancient bronze vessels, interiors: Tokunoma decoration, tea garden view, interior using scholar's rocks, sculpture, tea flower arran- gements, garden entrance, outdoor tea-party. An exceptional- ly obscure & delightful resource. Ch'an or Chinese Zen Bud- dhism is the discipline that started the tea-ceremony in ancient China. The Japanese during their period of borrowing from the Asian mainland saw the importation of a multitude of Chinese & Korean arts. Buddhism was the main vehicle that brought in an uncountable amount of religious, cultural and artistic traditions. The tea-ceremony was imported in conju- nction with its austere aesthetics, tea-room architecture, ceramics, appreciation and worship of ancient objects, art art works, paintings, gardens and scholar's items. Charming illustrations grace these pages, each done by a member of the association, along with his calligraphy, signature and red cinnabar chops [seals], most also have put their age. The majority were in their seventies or even older. A fine reference for any serious student of tea, tea-ceremony and scholar's items. A truly wonderful and obscure illustrated work. Very few surviving Chinese tea-ceremony books remain from earlier periods. Conained in a new indigo-blue Chitsu folding box, with clasps. Color scans can be sent by email.

        Complete Writings

      1908 - HUBBARD, Elbert. The Complete Writings. East Aurora, New York: The Roycroft Shop, (1908-15). Twenty volumes. Tall quarto, original three-quarter green morocco, raised bands, gilt- and blind-tooled spines, top edges gilt, uncut. $5200.Author’s edition of the collected Little Journeys, number 894 of 1000 sets, finely printed and bound by Hubbard’s prestigious Roycroft Press, each volume signed by Hubbard. With two pages of Hubbard’s original manuscript for one of the “journeys” bound into Volume I.Appalled by the way commercialization cheapened the art of printing books, and inspired by William Morris’ Kelmscott Press, Hubbard founded his own press in 1893. The Roycroft Press became perhaps the most important touchstone of the Arts and Crafts Movement in America, which sought to revive the standards of medieval craftsmanship by producing books that were themselves works of art. This set is one of the finest examples of the Arts and Crafts style in American printing and the epitome of Hubbard’s ambitions for the Roycroft Press. Under the Roycroft imprint Hubbard wrote 170 “conversational” essays (which he called “Little Journeys”) about the lives and works of historic personages from the arts, government, and private enterprise. Printed in exquisite typography, on Roycroft hand-made paper, with three-color initial letters designed by Dard Hunter, and decorative devices throughout. Each “journey” is accompanied by a delicately etched portrait of the subject either by Gaspard or Schneider. Two pages of Hubbard’s manuscript bound into Volume I, between pages 124-25. Occasional scattered foxing. Light rubbing to extremities, some sunning to original boards. A handsome set in near-fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Wind in the Willows.

      London: Methuen and co., 1908., 1908. First Edition. Octavo. Bound in recent full blue morocco, gilt ruled panelling to boards, raised bands and gilt titles to spine; top edge gilt, other edges uncut, marbeled endpapers. Frontispiece by Graham Robertson. Original publisher's green cloth front board, showing Mole and Rat boating under the gaze of Pan, and spine with gilt titles and a portrait of Toad in driving togs bound in at rear. Handsomely bound; negligible shelfwear. Internally clean and free from foxing. Stamp to title in blue , "Presentation Copy"; frontispiece tissue guard shows small ink mark. Kenneth Grahame, banker, essayist and successful author of 'The Golden Age' (1895) and 'Dream Days' (1898), had effectively given up writing by the turn of the twentieth century, much to the disappointment of his publisher. He did, however, continue to make up stories for the amusement of his only son, the partially-sighted Alistair, known as 'mouse'. The first such story was requested by the child, who asked for a bedtime story about 'a rat, a mole and a giraffe.' Grahame was supposed to be downstairs, attending to his dinner guests, but instead told a story about animals having a picnic by the river. The maid overheard the story and later told Grahame's wife Elspeth about it. The stories continued and a 'Toad' character developed. When Mouse went away in 1907 the tales continued in correspondance. The maid, showing considerable foresight, preserved all the letters, which chronicle Mr Toad's adventures in almost the same words they would later be published in, under the title 'The Wind in the Willows'. The letters make up the second half of the book, in which Toad steals a motorcar and lands himself in prison, only to be saved by the kindly gaoler's daughter.

        Die Funktionen der Nervencentra.

[Zweites Heft: Kleinhirn, Mittelhirn, Zwischenhirn und subkorticale Ganglien. Drittes Heft: Hemisphären des Grosshirns.] Translated from the Russian by Richard Weinberg. 3 volumes. ix, 691; viii, 693-1336; x, 1337-2047pp. Text illustrations. Jena: Gustav Fischer, 1908-11. 248 x 167 mm. Library buckram, light wear, hinges cracked. Very good set, from the library of American neurologist Smith Ely Jelliffe (1866-1945), with his bookplate and signature in each volume. Embossed stamp of the Hartford Retreat Medical Library on each title; library call numbers on spines. First Edition in German of Bechterev?s Osnovy uchenia o funktsiakh mozga [Fundamentals of Brain Function] (1903-7). Bechterev was one of the most prominent neuroscientists of his era, playing a crucial role in the study of the development of the brain?s organization, neurophysiology, neuropathology and experimental psychology. In his Fundamentals of Brain Function, first published in Russian in seven volumes between 1903 and 1907, Bechterev included a summary of his extensive observations of the functions of the frontal lobes, confirming that extirpation of the frontal lobes destroys the capacity for goal-directed behavior. Animals deprived of their frontal lobes ?do not evaluate the results of their actions as they should, cannot correlate new external impressions with past experience, and do not direct their movements and actions to their own advantage? (quoted in Luria, p. 251). The German edition of Bechterev?s book contains one of the first uses of the term ?extrapyramidal? to describe neural structures. This copy is from the library of Smith Ely Jelliffe, author of Diseases of the Nervous System (1915; Garrison-Morton [online] 4599), founder of The Psychoanalytic Review and one of the first American book collectors in neuroscience, psychiatry and psychoanalysis.

Tyrrell pp. 62-63. The original version of the opera. "Janá ek first offered [the opera] to the Prague National Theatre in March 1903. It was immediately rejected, possibly because of an antagonism towards him by the head of opera, Karel Kova ovic. The opera, however, was performed in Brno early the next year... Prague... refused to take it up until 1915, when under great pressure from several friends of Janá ek, Kova ovicÂ’s resistance weakened, and he consented to stage the work subject to his revisions (chiefly cuts and some reorchestration). Janá ek agreed (he was 61, and had waited long enough), and the work was given a fine performance under Kova ovic on 26 May 1916... The vocal score, published by the Club of the Friends of Art in Brno (1908), incorporated revisions made by Janá ek in 1906–7." John Tyrrell in Grove Music Online. The manuscript corrections cited above are in all likelihood in the hand of the conductor of the first Prague production of the opera on May 26, 1916, Karel Kova ovic (1862-1920). Kamila Ungrová (1887-1972), a Czech soprano engaged by the National Theater in Prague from 1907 to 1927, sang the role of Jen fa at the Prague premiere. A very interesting copy with close association to the first Prague performance of the opera.

        Archive of Material Relating to Juanita Miller and her Father Joaquin Miller

      Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 0. Ephemera. The following is a beautiful archive of autograph letters with envelopes (mostly) from Juanita Miller to her father from Sept 1908 through March 21, 1911. Also included are several extra items including one autograph letter from Joaquin Miller to his daughter and several letters relating to either Juanita or Joaquin. "Cincinnatus Heine Miller (September 8, 1837 - February 17, 1913), better known by his pen name Joaquin Miller, was a colorful American poet and frontiersman. He is nicknamed the "Poet of the Sierras" after the Sierra Nevada, about which he wrote in his Songs of the Sierras (1871)." (From Wikipedia.) His daughter Juanita (Juanita Joaquina Miller -daughter of Joaquin Miller and wife Abbie Leland Miller was born in New York City in 1880. Miss Miller lived at Joaquin Miller's locally famous home, "The Heights," in Oakland, California, and was an active participant in the Oakland performing arts community until the 1960s.) She studied music in New York and was a sometime composer of music which produced to accompany her father's poems / lyrics. She was famous more for her father's well respected name than anything she herself did and was a flamboyant and rather eccentric character well known in the San Francisco Bay area from the 1930's on. The archives consist of:*Five holograph letters to Joaquin Miller from his daughter dated September 21st, 1908 - Dec 26th, 1908 in hand addressed envelopes.*Seven holograph letters to Joaquin Miller from his daughter dated February 1, 1909 - November 5th, 1909, in hand addressed envelopes.*Ten letters to Joaquin Miller from his daughter dated March 12, 1910 - December 14th, 1910, in hand addressed envelopes.*Five letters to Joaquin Miller from his daughter dated March 17th, 1911 - March 21st, 1911: all of these letters are addressed to Fabiola Hospital, Oakland, CA. (in hand addressed envelopes). (The Fabiola Hospital was built in 1887 at the intersection of New Broadway and Moss Avenue (now Broadway and West MacArthur Blvd.) on 2-1/2 acres of land donated by Anthony Chabot. This new hospital was the work of the women club members of the Fabiola Association who envisioned a comfortable environment for the underprivileged. The Oakland Kaiser Permanente complex literally stands on the same site as the Fabiola Hospital. 1Fabiola Hospital, Oakland, California 1Kate Kirkham learned of the need for a local hospital in Oakland after witnessing a terrible carriage accident in 1877. The victim had to be transported 10 miles to a hospital in San Leandro. $50 was collected from 18 of her women friends and the Fabiola Association was formed. The focus of the group was to provide medical assistance for all, regardless of financial circumstances. The name Fabiola comes from Saint Fabiola, a woman in 4th century Rome who started the first hospital for sick and needy travelers.*A five page holograph letter from Juanita Miller to her father dated May 10, 1909 in a hand addressed envelope which discusses her graduation (from music school) and plans for travel and goes on to mention that she would like to be independent: "it is really wicked for me to be dependent any longer & mother will not allow me to teach, she considers it unlady-like, she is also so fearful lest I sing (?) but do something without her knowledge." *An envelope (with the address of Harris and Ewing Photographers 1311 F. Street N.W. Washington D.C. which includes a holograph request by Margaret E. Harrington for Miss Miller to perform her father's poem "Columbus" for a group of pupils (undated). The envelope also includes a typed letter hand signed by Juanita Miller to her father discussing her mother's stifling of her career and life and how she would like to live with her father in Oakland but not sure she could flout her mother's wishes. Also included is a newspaper clipping regarding Juanita Miller (undated).*A holograph four page letter from Juanita Miller to an unknown recipient which mentions her father's illness and fighting spirit (there's much more to the letter, but the handwriting is difficult to read). This letter does not include an envelope and is undated. *A two page (half page letterhead from the Fabiola Hospital Association) dated March 8 (1911?) holograph letter from Joaquin Miller at Fabiola hospital - the handwriting is nearly illegible, but appears to be a note of love and care to his daughter . *A single page (half page letterhead from the Fabiola Hospital Association) , undated (assumed to be during March 1911), holograph letter from an attendant at Fabiola Hospital giving an update on Joaquin Miller's condition which was not improving and was partly due to nerves (according to the writer). *Four newspaper clippings regarding Juanita or Joaquin Miller (one from the Oakland Tribune dated Wed. Sept 25, 1968).*A flyer from AMORC (Rosicrucians) to Miss J J Miller.*Eight 8x10" photos (a couple of them have been cut down) of Juanita Miller posing for the camera (Includes duplicates of the same pose). One photo shows her in front of a small wooden cabin of some sort, the other could be a back garden (?)The letters vary in length and in content, but generally cover Juanita's daily life, her work with music and music study, her controlling mother and her desire to come and live with her father. There are instances throughout many of the letters where she discusses something to do with her father's writing, either receiving proof copies of something he wrote, discussion of something she read about or by him, etc. etc. Also the letters give an interesting look at the peripatetic lifestyle Juanita Miller had during this period of time - the letters are sent from a number of different places and she visits, or mentions many friends / acquaintances in her travels. .

        Original Watercolour for Highways & Byways in Surrey - Eashing, Surrey

      1908. No Binding. Very Good/No Jacket. Hugh Thomson. This is the original watercolour, by Hugh Thomson, used for the picture of Eashing in chapter XI of the book by Eric Parker. The image is 11 X 8.5" and is framed and glazed by Edward Walker & Co of Coleraine, N.I., where Hugh Thomson originated. The image is clean and tidy although the inside of the glass has some spots on it and the picture would benefit from reglazing. This is a heavy item and will attract additional P&P if sent outside the UK so kindly contact me for a P&P quotation before ordering. Frame size 20 X 15". Original artwork by one of the foremost Irish illustrators of his day. Worked extensively on illustrating the classics and the Highways & Byways series at the end of the Nineteenth Century and into the 20th Century.
