        Baki's Dîwan Ghazalijjât nach den Handschriften von Leiden, Leipzig, München und Wien herausgegeben, I-II [TWO VOLUMES]

      Leiden, Buchhandlung und Druckerei vormals E. J. Brill, 1908-11.. Two volumes bound in one. Pp. 304; lxxv, 306-666. Text in Ottoman Turkish in Arabic script. Hardcover, bound in blue full cloth with the original printed wrappers and spine nicely reproduced on special paper and very neatly laid-down. Original printed stiff wrappers of both volumes are bound-in. In fine condition. Handsome copy in excellent state of preservation. ~ First edition. Extremely rare. The scientific study of Turkey and its history and culture in Czech lands dates back to the 19th century. Founders of this branch of "Oriental studies" were Max Grünert (1849-1929), Jaromír Bretislav Kosut (1854-1880), but especially their luminary student Rudolf Dvorák (1860-1920). Dvorák finished his doctoral studies in Leipzig and became a professor of Oriental philology at the Charles University in Prague. He is well known for his critical edition of the poetic work of the 16th-Century poet Baki (1526-1600), the greatest ghazal writer of Turkish literature whose ghazals were "minutely tooled with the care of a jeweller". Dvorák's work on Baki's Diwan is presented here in its completeness in the very rare first edition, one of Brill's pioneering works on the subject. For the evaluation of Dvorák's translations see Ludek Hrebícek, "Preklady Rudolfa Dvoráka z turectiny", 1961. A complete bibliography of Dvorák's work can be found in "Archiv Orientální" 28/1960.

        Album of 34 original silver gelatin prints taken during a Baltic cruise, including 12 Russian scenes.

      London: Fradelle & Young,, c. 1908. Quarto (277 x 210 mm). Photographer's original padded album of black grained skiver, spine with five raised bands, lettered on front cover "A Cruise on the 'Dunottar Castle'", gilt edges, gilt roll tool turn-ins, white moiré endpapers. 34 original silver gelatin prints (measuring between 240 x 190 and 105 x 150 mm, each image with holograph caption), mounted on heavy stock card, green cloth hinges. Superficial split to front joint (board firm and sound), a little wear to extremities of spine and corners, periphery of mount cards toned; overall in very good condition, the prints of excellent quality. Highly appealing luxury photograph album of a cultural cruise to the Baltic, including 11 scenes in St. Petersburg (8) and Moscow (3), the fine silver gelatin prints displaying the characteristic rich tonal range associated with the process, with subtle shadowing and remarkably crisp detail. This cruise took in Copenhagen (6), Sweden (6 of Wisby, 3 of Stockholm) and Danzig (7); the album concludes with a group portrait (not captioned), presumably of the tour party. The St. Petersburg views comprise the Winter Palace, St. Isaac's Cathedral, the l'Etat majeur (General Staff building), Peter the Great's cottage, a canal with barges moored, the Hermitage, the Nicholas Bridge, and the Church of the Resurrection. The three Moscow images are of St. Basil's Cathedral, the Kremlin (photographed from across the Moskva on the Sofiskaya Embankment), and the Spass Gate; there is also a fine image of a droshky waiting at the kerb, the driver sporting a low crowned top hat. The views of Danzig are also particularly engaging, and include the harbor, a bustling street scene at the City Gate, and the Rathaus. The photographic studio of Fradelle & Young was successor to the business established by Albert Eugene Fradelle in the 1860s. In 1872 Fradelle went into partnership with William Shury Marshall, as Fradelle & Marshall, and maintained two West End studios. This concern went bankrupt in 1877 but was resurrected by Albert Young around 1884, under the name Fradelle & Young. Company advertisements in Sir Henry Lunn's How to Visit Northern Europe: A Guide-Book to the Capitals of the Baltic, Iceland, and Norway (1899) and Mediterranean Winter Resorts (1904), announce "a choice selection of Lantern Slides of All Parts of the World. These are prepared from original negatives specially taken by Mr. Albert Young during recent cruises, and are constantly being supplemented by fresh negatives from Messrs. Fradelle & Young's representatives". Unmounted photographs of the "best silver prints" are available at one shilling each, along with "albums of views, beautifully bound in morocco" at 45 and 84 shillings each. The RMS Dunottar Castle was laid down in 1889 at the Govan shipyards on the Clyde; the following year she went into service with the Castle Line, running passengers and mail between Britain and South Africa and became renowned for reducing the voyage time from Southampton to Cape Town, from 42 days to 17. Following service as a troop ship in the Second Boer War (1899-1902) – carrying Sir Redvers Buller along with a young war correspondent called Winston S. Churchill - and a stint on the New York to Colon (Panama Canal) route, in 1908 she was chartered by Sir Henry Lunn for cruises to the Baltic and the Mediterranean. Lunn (1859-1939) organized tours that "proved highly successful. He pioneered the promotion of winter sports and was responsible for opening up large areas of Switzerland to the English public, forming the Hellenic Travellers' Club, Alpine Sports Limited, the Church Travellers' Club, and the Free Church Touring Guild. His cultural cruises, combining travel with lectures by well-known speakers, were also highly successful. His firm survived into the twenty-first century as Lunn-Poly" (ODNB). In Lunn's second volume of autobiography, the "Dunottar" is mentioned several times (Nearing Harbour: The Log of Sir Henry S. Lunn, London: 1934). A handsome album containing some most attractive images, reflecting the expansion of tourism in fin de siècle Europe and the development of the aristocratic Grand Tour into middle-class "cultural tourism".

Februar 1856 in Kozichowitz bei Trebitsch; † 20. Juni 1940 in St. Pölten) war einer der ersten Skipioniere und gilt als einer der Begründer der alpinen Skilauftechnik. Außerdem war er als Lehrer, Maler und Bildhauer tätig. Mathias Zdarsky war das zehnte Kind eines Sägemüllers in Kozichowitz. Zdarsky war in der Kindheit auf einem Auge erblindet, maturierte im Jahr 1878 an der Lehrerbildungsanstalt in Brünn und arbeitete bis 1883 als Lehrer. Anschließend studierte er in München und Zürich Malerei, Bildhauerei, aber auch Technik. Während seines Studiums absolvierte er zahlreiche Reisen entlang der Donau sowie nach Bosnien, Italien und Nordafrika, wo er überall auch zahlreiche Skizzen und Bilder anfertigte. Der begeisterte Turner interessierte sich unter anderem auch für das Fliegen. Während dieser Zeit des Studiums erwarb er in Lilienfeld eine Landwirtschaft. Angeregt von Fridtjof Nansens Durchquerung Grönlands interessierte er sich, wie viele andere auch, für die Jahrtausende alte nordische Skifahrtechnik. Zdarsky stellte jedoch bald fest, dass sie für den Alpenraum ungeeignet war, weil die damals übliche Rohrbügelbindung dem Fuß zu wenig Halt gab. 1890 entwickelte er die seitenstabile, stark gefederte Lilienfelder Stahlsohlenbindung, die den Ski lenkbar machte, weil die Ferse nicht mehr seitlich abrutschen konnte, zudem verkürzte er den Ski und machte so erstmals das Befahren von Steilhängen und Torläufe möglich. Er patentierte seine Bindung 1896 und sie wurde die Grundlage moderner Skibindungen. Wie bei den altnorwegischen Skifahrtechniken benutzte er nur einen Skistock. Die von Zdarsky entwickelte „Alpine (Lilienfelder) Skifahr-Technik" („Vorlagestemmschwung") war die erste alpine Schwungtechnik, weshalb Zdarsky als Begründer des alpinen Skilaufs gilt. Auch seine Gegner konnten es nicht vermeiden, seine Bindung zu kopieren und aus seiner Fahrtechnik einzelne Elemente herauszugreifen, um ihre „Pflugtechnik" zu verbessern. 1898 gründete Zdarsky den Lilienfelder Skiverein, 1900 den „Internationale Alpen Ski-Verein" (später umbenannt in „Alpen Ski-Verein"), der mit seinen 1889 Mitgliedern vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg der größte Skiverein Mitteleuropas war. Im Jänner 1905 erfolgte durch Mathias Zdarsky die erste Steilabfahrt. Um die Überlegenheit seiner Skitechnik zu beweisen, lud er sowohl Freunde der norwegischen als auch der von ihm entwickelten Skifahrtechnik zu einer „Vergleichsfahrt" auf die Breite Ries am Schneeberg ein, bei der sich die Anhänger der norwegischen Technik geschlagen geben mussten. Am 19. März 1905 organisierte er am Muckenkogel bei Lilienfeld unter der Bezeichnung Wettfahrt den ersten Torlauf der Skigeschichte, an welchem sich 24 Teilnehmer beteiligten. Der Kurs ähnelte einem moderne [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Although no longer under family control, the company still exists today.

        Baki's Dîwan Ghazalijjât nach den Handschriften von Leiden, Leipzig, München und Wien herausgegeben, I-II. [TWO VOLUMES].

      Leiden, Buchhandlung und Druckerei vormals E. J. Brill, 1908-11. - Two volumes bound in one. Pp. 304; lxxv, 306-666. Text in Ottoman Turkish in Arabic script. Hardcover, bound in blue full cloth with the original printed wrappers and spine nicely reproduced on special paper and very neatly laid-down. Original printed stiff wrappers of both volumes are bound-in. In fine condition. Handsome copy in excellent state of preservation. ~ First edition. Extremely rare. The scientific study of Turkey and its history and culture in Czech lands dates back to the 19th century. Founders of this branch of "Oriental studies" were Max Grünert (1849-1929), Jaromír Bretislav Kosut (1854-1880), but especially their luminary student Rudolf Dvorák (1860-1920). Dvorák finished his doctoral studies in Leipzig and became a professor of Oriental philology at the Charles University in Prague. He is well known for his critical edition of the poetic work of the 16th-Century poet Baki (1526-1600), the greatest ghazal writer of Turkish literature whose ghazals were "minutely tooled with the care of a jeweller". Dvorák's work on Baki's Diwan is presented here in its completeness in the very rare first edition, one of Brill's pioneering works on the subject. For the evaluation of Dvorák's translations see Ludek Hrebícek, "Preklady Rudolfa Dvoráka z turectiny", 1961. A complete bibliography of Dvorák's work can be found in "Archiv Orientální" 28/1960.

Feliks Topolski (1907 - 1989) Polish artist and stage designer, early in his career moved to London: " An early commission was to draw the first cover of Night and Day, a short-lived periodical through which he gained literary friendships, including that of Graham Greene .His fluent graphic style was from the first equally effective in newspapers, magazines, or books; for example, George Bernard Shaw became a firm admirer, and commissioned him to produce illustrated editions of three of his plays. Shaw described him as 'an astonishing draughtsman; perhaps the greatest of all the impressionists in black and white'. He was also commissioned by Shaw to design stage sets. The war years of 1939-45 consolidated Topolski's British reputation as an exceptionally gifted draughtsman, adept at recording history as it happened. He became an official war artist in 1940 and began by making drawings of the London blitz.worked extensively for magazines in Britain and the United States internationally celebrated and remained so In all he produced twenty-two books. A graphic published parallel (to his many large-scale mural works, several commissioned by British royalty) was Topolski's Chronicle (1953-79 and 1982-9), which reproduced drawings from the artist's extensive travels throughout the world. Nine of his portraits are in the National Portrait Gallery, and a substantial collection of his work (30 paintings and 550 drawings) is in the national museum of Poland in Warsaw. Further examples of his work are in the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tate Gallery, and the Imperial War Museum Topolski received many awards for his work, about which four television programmes were made ."
