        Olaf Gulbransson: Führer durch München während der Ausstellung II (Originalzeichnung)

      1908 - Tusche und Bleistift auf Papier. 51 x 36,5 cm. Rechts unten signiert. Veröffentlicht:  Simplicissimus. Jahrgang 13 (1908), Heft 9, Seite 152 Text: Zu Bild 1: „Nun ist es also Wirklichkeit geworden! - - - Die Münchner Ausstellung ist eröffnet, und alle Welt kann sich überzeugen, daß wir an erster Stelle stehen, und die hämischen Erzählungen vom Rückgange unserer Kunststadt sind ein für allemal widerlegt. Doch davon ein andernmal. Heute berichten wir nur von der überaus glänzenden Eröffnung der Ausstellung, welche bis auf den letzten Nagel fertig sich vor den bewundernden Augen der Besucher auftat. Gestatten Sie ihrem Berichterstatter eine kurze Schilderung der Ereignisse des 16. Mai. Gleich beim Eingange fiel mir die erhabene Gestalt des unvergesslichen Königs im Lohengrinkostüme mit großartig ausgestopftem Schwane auf.“ Zu Bild 2: „Ein Hoflakai brachte noch fünf Minuten vor der feierlichen Eröffnung einen gleichfalls ausgestopften Dackel herbei, welcher das Entzücken aller Jäger und aller Damen bilden wird und so eine durch Munifizenz des Hofes gewährte kostbare Bereicherung der Ausstellung bedeutet. Doch lassen Sie mich nur von der feierlichen Eröffnung sprechen! Alles war da. Tout Munich. Besonderes Aufsehen erregten die hohen Angehörigen unseres erlauchten Herrscherhauses.“ Zu Bild 3: „Da war Seine königliche Hoheit unser gnädiger Prinz Ludwig, welches jedes Detail, jede Figur einer eingehendsten und sachverständigen Prüfung unterzog.“ Zu Bild 4: „Da war die ragende Gestalt Seiner königlichen Hoheit des Prinzen Alfons zu sehen, der mit sichlichem Interesse den Erklärungen eines Professors lauschte und mit großer Genugtuung die Fortschritte der Kunst im Handwerke hervorhob. Da waren die erlauchten Prinzessinnen vollzählig erschienen und ließen sich von Ihrer Königlichen Hoheit Prinzessin Therese die Ziele und Ausgaben dieser Ausstellung erläutern.“ Zu Bild 5: „Da war Prinz Ludwig Ferdinand, ein Arzt und Künstler zugleich der sich aufs leutseligste mit den Arrangeuren unterhielt und sie auf Verschiedenes erst aufmerksam machte. Kurzum, es war eine glänzende Eröffnung einer glänzenden Veranstaltung, und man darf wohl mit dem Römer ausrufen: Accipio omen.

        Biedermeier-Wünsche... Fünfzig Kleinfolio-Tafeln in Licht-u. Farbendruck nebst illustriertem Text

      Stuttgart: Julius Hoffmann, 1908. First Limited Edition. Cloth folder. Near Fine. No. 165 of 400 copies. Oblong, 26.5 by 33.5 cm. Booklet, running 25 pages, and 50 separate or loose plates, each with a number of images of Biedermeier cards, especially those with movable parts, and other ephemera from that period. One plate with color chromolithographic images; otherwise, the plates are in black and white. This is the indispensable and go-to source still for Biedermeier cards. Biedermeier relates to a period of general stability in Europe between Napoleon's defeat in 1815 and the Revolution of 1848 and specifically pertains to the Teutonic world (the German-speaking areas) where the upper bourgeois was culturally ascendant and superceding Royal and aristocratic patronage as the engine of high cultural development. The Biedermeier cards were a rage, with their intricate, clever mechanisms and pretty hand-colored imagery. Light wear to the outer folio folder. Generally clean.

        The Unmasking of Robert-Houdin.

      The Publishers Printing Co, New York 1908 - First edition. Octavo, original cloth, frontispiece of Houdini. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To F.L.C. Wehrenberg Jr. with compliments of the author. Harry Houdini 4/27/16 Baltimore MD." In near fine condition with some light rubbing and wear. "Harry Houdini was a unique figure in the history of entertainment. a hero of legend and folklore." Following the death of his mother in 1913, Houdini began to investigate spiritualism and "soon became an all-out crusader against it. Early in 1924 he began lecturing throughout the United States on fraudulent mediums. In city after city he attended seances in disguise, exposing frauds on the spot and sometimes securing their arrest, aided by his personal squad of detectives. The raids brought him huge publicity as well as a million dollars in lawsuits." At his death in 1927, "he was buried in a brass replica of the iron casket, his head pillowed on a bundle of his mother's letters to him" (ANB). The legendary magician and illusionist Harry Houdini turns a critical eye to the astonishing claims of those in his own profession in his work Miracle Mongers and Their Methods. Using personal research and observations, Houdini reveals the cunning techniques employed by fire-eaters, sword swallowers, and other masters of deception to mystify and amaze audiences around the world.
