        A large vintage portrait photograph of Australian-born composer Percy Grainger, signed by him with a warm inscription and musical sentiment to American composer and electronic music pioneer Raymond Scott (born Harry Warnow, 1908-1994)

      - The inscription reads in full: 'To dear Harry, in warm admiration of his true genius, thanking him for his glorious first performance of "The Lost Lady", & in happy memory of one of the few electric concerts of my life (June 2). His friend, Percy, June 1938'. The musical sentiment that follows comprises the first three bars of 'The Lost Lady Found', the sixth movement of Grainger's 'Lincolnshire Posy', a collection of folk songs arranged for concert band. Percy Grainger (1882-1961) is well-known for his work in collecting folk music and experimentation with early electronic instruments; the inscription is singularly apposite. The gelatin silver photograph (an impressive 330 x 250 mm) is signed and dated by the photographer Frederick Morse ('Morse 1937', written in ink on the bottom right-hand corner of the image). 'After World War 1, Frederick Morse, a young professional photographer, built a house next door to Percy and Rose Grainger in White Plains, New York. He produced many of Grainger's promotional photographs during the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s as well as informally documenting the Grainger household and Percy's eclectic pursuits. Their association became close, with Morse periodically working as Percy's secretary and as an occasional wrestling partner' (Brian Allison, 'Grainger Photographs', University of Melbourne Library Journal, 2000). The photograph has a little silvering-out to the lower right-hand portion, and its edges are a little darkened with a few trifling chips; overall it is in excellent condition.

      - Questa notissima rivista fiorentina ha catalizzato gli interessi culturali e politici del primo novecento ed attorno ad essa sono stati dibattuti i grandi temi etico-politici ed ideologici . I "vociani" ebbero un ruolo importante nel periodo della entrata in guerra (l'interventismo !) Le varie scissioni ( Papini e Soffici fondarono poi Lacerba ) ed i dibattiti assai accesi ( Prezzolini lascio' la direzione per fondare La Voce Politica nel 1915 e poi ritornò nell'arengo. ) alimentarono notevolmente la cultura storica e letteraria, incidendo profondamente sul Novecento !

        RAW EDGES: STUDIES AND STORIES OF THESE DAYS ...

      London: Published by William Heinemann,. 1908. original pictorial black cloth, front panel stamped in red and white, spine panel stamped in red, bottom edge untrimmed.. Touch of wear to cloth at spine ends, a bit of loss to white enamel. rule on front cover, free endpapers tanned, a very good copy.. (#148794). First edition. Collects thirteen stories. "Mixed collection, including the classic ghost story 'Thurnley Abbey,' also psychological suspense stories 'Railhead' and 'The Gyroscope,' the latter about a horrifying juggernaut which runs amok in a crowded auditorium. Superb lithographs by Alberto Martini." - Robert Knowlton. "The little-known Perceval Landon was capable of considerable suspense, terror, wit, and insight into Edwardian technology. The stories collected in RAW EDGES are a decidedly mixed bag (and not all of them supernatural. According to Jacques Barzun and Wendell H. Taylor in Catalogue of Crime (1974), 'there is much to admire, as well as much to disappoint.' The most often reprinted Landon tale is the superb 'Thurnley Abbey.'" - Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3-138. "Although Landon published only one collection of short stories with supernatural content, RAW EDGES (1908), the unusual quality of one particular story makes it worthy of note. This is the frequently anthologized tale, 'Thurnley Abbey,' which is ranked by some as one of the greatest ghost stories ever written. Landon's achievement is all the more impressive because of his use of well-worn subject matter. The tale's masterful development of atmosphere is a model of how even cliched material can be given a new lease of life in the hands of a skilled writer." - Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 309. Landon's only book of fiction. "Thurnley Abbey" is "a Jamesian classic" and "Landon's only Jamesian tale." - Pardoe, The James Gang, p. 11. Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 252. Bleiler (1978), p. 118. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). Barzun and Taylor, A Catalogue of Crime 3435.

        SARDONICS: SIXTEEN SKETCHES ...

      New York: Metropolitan Syndicate, Inc.,. [1908]. original light green cloth, lettered in red on front and spine panels.. Spine panel darkened, stain on lower spine, else a very good copy.. (#150825). First edition. The rare first issue with integral title leaf bearing the "Metropolitan Syndicate" imprint and bound in non-pictorial green cloth. SARDONICS is the first of Lyon's two books, both collecting some of his short fiction. Lyon's untimely death at age 33 cut short a promising literary career. His fiction was of high caliber and has been favorably compared with that of Stephen Crane and Ambrose Bierce. "The 31 tales and sketches in [SARDONICS and GRAPHICS] can be properly compared with the work of Crane and Bierce for vivid, highly characterized and purposeful narrative. 'The Second Motive' in SARDONICS and 'Revenge' in GRAPHICS are psychological murder tragedies at the two extremes of the social scale. Lyon, like Crane and Norris, died before his talents had fully matured and, unfortunately, when his work had only begun to appear in McCLURE'S MAGAZINE and to attract special attention." - Bennett, A Practical Guide to American Book Collecting, p. 204. Most of the stories in SARDONICS are mystery or detective shorts, some with fantastic elements. "Into the Fourth Dimension" concerns the fate of the inventor of a device to project people into other dimensions who is poisoned in a Chinese restaurant, kills his tormentor, and escapes into another dimension with disastrous results. Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 L-615. Not in Hubin (1994).

        The Story of the Noble Opal

      Flavelle, Roberts and Sankey, Brisbane 1908 - Small octavo (166 x 107 mm), 114, [2] (recto blank, with the device of the printers, Outridge Printing Co., on the verso) pages. Original olive-green cloth lettered in gilt on the spine ('Noble Opal' and the author's surname) and front cover (the full title); cloth slightly marked, and lightly rubbed at the extremities; top edge, endpapers and adjacent leaves a little foxed; an excellent copy. Flavelle's Gem Series Number 1. This copy is inscribed and signed to 'C.C. Brittlebank, with kind regards from Sydney B.J. Skertchly. Corinda, Qld. 6.3.08'. Sydney Skertchly (1850-1926) arrived in Brisbane in 1891 after a successful career as a geologist in places as varied as the Fenland and East Anglia, Egypt, California, Burma and China. In 1895-97 he was assistant government geologist in the Geological Survey of Queensland; he was President of the Royal Society of Queensland in 1898, and a founder and first president of the Field Naturalists' Club in 1906 (the Australian Dictionary of Biography entry on Skertchly is most informative, without mentioning this publication). The author's end-note to the reader states that the publishers 'asked me to write a series of little books on gemstones, and gave me an entirely free hand. As this, the first of them shows, they will not be mere gatherings from other harvests, but original works embodying the results of my own experience'. An early, rare and important work on the subject (and we know of no other volumes in the Flavelle's Gem Series). The inscription and signature date from what appears to be the month of publication (reviews begin to appear in Queensland newspapers from 10 March 1908). Charles Clifton Brittlebank (1862-1945), the recipient of this copy, was a notable mycologist and natural history illustrator. Among many original papers on geology and plant diseases, Brittlebank's work includes the illustrations to French's 'Destructive Insects of Victoria' (1891-1911), Archibald Campbell's 'Nests and Eggs of Australian Birds' (1901), and many of the works of Daniel McAlpine, whom he succeeded as Vegetable Pathologist to the Department of Agriculture in Victoria. This copy also carries the later pencilled ownership signature of Edward Edgar Pescott (1872-1954), horticulturalist, naturalist, author and bibliographer. We currently have for sale two unsigned copies of this item, sourced from a significant collection on the subject. They prove the existence of distinctly variant issues: one contains an unnumbered advertising leaf for 'Queensland, the Queen of the Colonies' (verso blank) tipped in at the rear, the other is printed on textured (and coarser) paper, resulting in a noticeably thicker volume (14 mm as distinct from 11 mm). This signed copy is yet a third variant: while it is printed on the better-quality paper, it does not contain the additional advertising leaf (and it was clearly never present).

Ca. 7800 S., mit 280 überwiegend farbigen Tafeln und tausenden s/w-Abbildungen im Text. Vollständig.

Nissen, BBI 840 (gibt fälschlich 285 Tafeln an). – Ursprünglich auf nur drei Bände angelegt geriet das Werk ob des immer wieder verschobenen Abschlußes bald zum Sorgenkind des Verlages und lag letzten Endes erst nach 24 Jahren vollständig vor. Im Laufe der Zeit avancierte es zu einem immer wieder neu aufgelegten und bis in die Gegenwart aktualisierten Klassiker der Botanik. – „Ab 1905 erstellte Hegi mit seinem Werk Alpenflora die erste umfassende Darstellung der Pflanzenwelt der Alpen. Auf Wunsch seines Verlegers machte er sich anschliessend an die Aufgabe, ein ähnliches Werk auch für die gesamte deutsche Flora zusammenzustellen. Zwischen 1908 und 1931 hat er dieses Jahrhundertwerk unter dem Titel ‚Illustrierte Flora von Mittel-Europa‘ herausgegeben. (...) Davon hat Hegi etwa zwei Drittel selbst bearbeitet, der Rest stammt von Koautoren.“ (wikipedia, dt.). – Die Illustrationen stammen überwiegend von Gustav Dunzinger und dem Kunstmaler R. E. Pfenninger.

(15.1 x 9.6") Condition - see photos Light creasing to fields of the smaller drawing MARKUS MIZNEMarkus Mizne (1908 - 1994) was born in Kiev and his early influences included his uncle Trympol, a sculptor, painter and museum curator who introduced him to the work of Malevich, Kandinsky, Larianov and Gontcharova. In 1924, while studying Political Science at the Sorbonne in Paris, Mizne discovered the Bauhaus movement and a longing to paint. He was a personal witness to the beginnings of Modern art, the abandonment of the representational, conventional subject matter, and the new approach to reality. He was part of the move towards abstraction and the spiritual. Freedom of expression for an artist is very similar to the scientist's deep dedication to truth, and the philosopher's desire to liberate man from the shackles of convention. For Markus Mizne, his inner world was the real 'tangible,' more deserving of his attention than the outer 'reality' of existence. Markus Mizne's abstract art is real for us now. Vital and visible as a documentary of man's unconquerable spirit, his paintings are an outward expression of an inner desire for individual freedom and a world governed by spiritual power. Markus Mizne (* 1908 in Kiew, Russisches Reich; † 1994 in New York City) war ein ukrainisch-brasilianischer Maler und Kunstsammler. Bekannt geworden ist Mizne durch seine experimentellen Blumenmustermalereien. Markus Mizne wuchs in einer Familie mit künstlerischen und musischen Neigungen auf. Er wurde früh durch seinen Onkel David Trympolsky beeinflusst, einem Bildhauer, Maler und Museumskurator in Kiew, der ihm die Werke von Malewitsch und Kandinsky nahebrachte. In den frühen 1920er Jahren lebte er mit seiner Familie in Moskau. Die Familie schickte ihn auf eine Internatsschule nach Deutschland, wo er mit moderner Kunst durch Besuche von Kursen zum Bauhaus vertraut gemacht wurde. Im Alter von 16 Jahren begann er zu malen. 1931 nach seiner Rückkehr aus Deutschland nach Russland, zogen seine Familie und er nach Polen. 1932, als 24-jähriger, unternahm er eine Reise nach Teheran und Damaskus, weiter nach Europa, schließlich nach Paris, wo er sich niederließ. 1935 heirateten Markus Mizne und die Pianistin Felicja Blumental in Warschau, wo sie sich bereits einige Jahre vorher kennengelernt hatten. In Paris malte Mizne, war mit vielen Künstlern befreundet, u. a. mit Foujita, van Dongen, Braque, Larionow, Gontscharowa, Pevsner und Fautrier. 1939 gelang es ihm vor dem zunehmenden Nazi-Terror aus Europa nach Brasilien zu fliehen. 1962 ließ sich die Familie Mizne wieder in Europa nieder, lebte in Paris, Mailand, Rom und London. 1991 zog Markus Mizne mit seiner Tochter Annette Celine nach New York, wo er 1994 verstarb. Er verkörperte persönlich die Anfänge der modernen Malerei, des Verzichts auf gegenständliche, herkömmliche Darstellung, und eines neuen Anspruchs der Realität. Er war so Teil der Hinwendung zum Abstrakten und Geistigen. Freiheit des Ausdrucks für einen Künstler entspricht dem tiefen Streben des Wissenschaftlers nach Wahrheit und dem Wunsch des Philosophen die Menschen von konventionellen Zwängen zu befreien. Markus Mizne, dessen Innenwelt in seinen Bildern greifbar erscheint, richtete seine Aufmerksamkeit auf die Wirklichkeit des im Inneren Existierenden. Markus Miznes abstrakte Kunst ist wirklich für uns heutige vital und sichtbar als eine Dokumentation unbesiegbaren Geistes; seine Gemälde sind eine Fortentwicklung seines inneren Wunsches nach individueller Freiheit und einer Welt dominiert durch geistiger Kraft.

        The Unmasking of Robert-Houdin.

      New York: The Publishers Printing Co.,, 1908. Octavo. Original light brown pictorial cloth, lettered in white, design to front cover in black and white. Portrait frontispiece of Houdini, illustrations in the text throughout. Bookseller's ticket of Pippen's Book Store, Baltimore. Some marks and pale staining to covers, a couple of bumps at top and bottom of front cover, old tape marks to endpapers, a tight, clean copy. The list of illustrations and index were printed separately and attached to the rear pastedown: copies are often found with these in varying degrees of completeness, ours has only the final leaf of index. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To Wm. V. Pippen with best wishes from the author Harry Houdini, April 27/1916, Baltimore, Md." Pippen's Book Store, situated at 605 N. Eutaw Street, was a feature of downtown Baltimore for over a century (1854-1961) and Houdini, an avid collector, would almost certainly have inscribed this copy of his controversial debunking of the great French magician Robert-Houdin, to the owner of the business, on a visit to his shop. It is dated the day after Houdini performed one of his most famous stunts, the suspended straitjacket escape - this time hanging from a derrick above a corner of the Baltimore Sun Building. Photographs show that an astonishing 50,000 people packed onto Charles Street to witness Houdini's performance that day. The image of the great magician dangling upside down was later used on the dust jacket of his Magical Rope Ties and Escapes (London: Will Goldston, 1921). Provenance: presentation inscription on front pastedown from Pippen to Lee Webster Sharpe, manager of the Red Star Bus Line (serving the Delmarva Peninsula) and amateur magician, known locally as the "Wizard of Wicomico"; Claude Crowe (whose bookplate partially obscures Pippen's presentation inscription), head of the family business Liberal Finance & Thrift Corp (based in San Antonio, Texas), was also a professional magician and editor of Texas Magic Collectors' Newsletter. Houdini had a finely-honed sense of publicity and signed copies are not uncommon, however, this is a very attractive presentation copy signed in full, dating from one of his greatest public escape acts, and has an appealing chain of subsequent ownership.
