         [one line in Greek, transliterated as] Hom?ri Odysseia.

      Oxford: Pr. at the University Press, 1909. Tall 4to (29 cm, 11.5"). [4 (3 blank)], [227], [3 (blank)] ff. The aesthetic of the fine press movement of the 19th century influenced many non-small press publishers in the 20th century, and here we have => a university press producing a gorgeous limited edition of the Odyssey. Issued in only 225 copies on handmade paper, printed in black and red with wide side and bottom margins, the text is that of David Binning Monro's Oxford Press, 1896, printing. Horace Hart composed it using the Greek type that Robert Proctor designed based on the Greek type of the Complutem Bible, which was used "by arrangement with the owners of the type" (colophon). Proctor's type was cut in just one size — large — making it, in reality, useable only in fine press work and spectacular there.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear. Publisher's quarter linen, light blue boards, paper label to spine. All edges untrimmed. Without the slipcase. Paper label a little darkened and rubbed, a few spots of discoloration to the linen, boards a little dusty; lower outer corner of front board with a small waterstain. Interior fresh. => A beautiful book.

Crocker (1861-1912) was a prominent San Franciscan businessman, one of the Committee of Fifty formed after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. He was the founder and director of a number of Bay Area businesses. A noted philatelist, he was one of the founders of the Pacific Philatelic Society in 1884.

         THE HARP OF THE BIRCHES AND OTHER POEMS

      n.p. 1909 - A unique manuscript (5" x 8-1/2") accomplished in a decorative calligraphic style with small illustrations by Anita Helen Parkhurst of poems presumably written by the author when he was 11 years old, seven years before his first commercially published book, BLOWN LEAVES of 1916, and presented to his parents at Christmas. Bound in black limp leather held together with a leather strap in a spiral fashion and with a holograph paper title label on the front cover. The contents consist of ten leaves of stiff brown paper stapled to the binding at the gutter. The title page includes author, title, the name of the calligrapher and illustrator, the dedication to Peattie's parents, and the date of 25 December 1909. The eleven poems include the title poem, Spring and Summer, Savior, We Die, Irish Drinking Song, Moon Rise, Sorrow, Mid Night and Dawn, Pompei, The Storm, and The Ruined City. While the poems are what one might expect of an 11 year old, it is interesting to note that several are concerned with themes relating to natural history, a fitting subject for the writer who would become known to many as America's most lyrical naturalist and whose books would include AN ALMANAC FOR MODERNS, IMMORTAL VILLAGE, A BOOK OF HOURS, THE ROAD OF A NATURALIST, JOURNEY INTO AMERICA, and A NATURAL HISTORY OF TREES. On the inside front cover is the large later bookplate of Donald Culross Peattie. Donald Culross Peattie (June 21, 1898 - November 16, 1964) was a U.S. botanist, naturalist, and author. He was described by Joseph Wood Krutch as "perhaps the most widely read of all contemporary American nature writers" during his heyday. Peattie has been called America’s most lyrical naturalist. He was essentially a poet, for in his writing he combined science with the spirit of poetry. His work reveals a strong appreciation for beauty and a sense of the unity of nature, considerable philosophic insight, and a concern for good prose. His nature writings are distinguished by a poetic and philosophical cast of mind and are scientifically scrupulous. His best known works are the two books (out of a planned trilogy) on North American trees which he wrote in the late 1940s and early '50s. AN ALMANAC FOR MODERNS, the day-to-day observations and reflections of a sensitive naturalist, was awarded the Gold Medal of the Limited Editions Club. His 1939 FLOWERING EARTH was named the best horticultural book of the year, and in 1940 received a silver medal from the Commonwealth Club of California. His autobiographical THE ROAD OF A NATURALIST was awarded a prize by Houghton Mifflin in 1941. Very Good and absolutely one of a kind [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Poesia. Rassegna internazionale diretta da F. T. Marinetti. Aprile - Maggio - Giugno - Luglio 1909. N. 3 - 4 - 5 - 6. Anno V

      Società Anonima Poligrafia Italiana, Milano 1909 - In-8° grande (275x285mm), pp. 92, brossura editoriale con affascinante composizione xilografica di Alberto Martini sospesa tra Simbolismo e Liberty, stampata in bianco e in verde. Illustrazioni in b.n. n.t. Ottimo stato; in barbe. Numero quadruplo di questo celebre mensile diretto da Marinetti, divenuto organo ufficiale della poesia futurista, pubblicato in complessivi 57 numeri in 31 fascicoli fra il 1905 e il 1909; il numero presenta particolare importanza perchè contiene la prima pubblicazione di alcuni dei testi fondanti del movimento futurista. Testi di Marinetti (Declaration of Futurism, traduzione inglese del manifesto pubblicato sul Figaro del 20 febbraio 1909, seguito dai testi originali in francese e in italiano); Les premières victoires du Futurisme; seguono le relative reazioni al manifesto di illustri scrittori stranieri, tra cui Pierre Loti; La morte prese il volante; ecc.), Gian Piero Lucini (con una poesia dedicata a Swinburne), Enrico Cavacchioli (con un'anteprima delle Ranocchie turchine), Paolo Buzzi, Corrado Govoni, Libero Altomare, ecc. Fondai Poesia, rivista internazionale che, prima fra tutti i fogli d'Italia, portò il nome e le poesie di Paul Claudel, accanto alle prime poesie di Buzzi, di Cavacchioli, Folgore, Palazzeschi, Govoni. Nasceva così il movimento futurista, con un largo e frenetico amore per l'arte nuova e per molti ingegni lirici italiani soffocati dallo scetticismo misoneista. Nasceva il movimento futurista antiscuola, antiaccademia, che doveva sgomberare l'Italia dal passatismo ruderomane, dal professoralismo pessimista e preparare l'attuale rinascenza italiana. (Marinetti, I Nuovi Poeti Futuristi). Salaris, Riviste, pp. 526 e sgg.: La bella copertina disegnata da Alberto Martini, raffigurante una fanciulla nuda, la poesia appunto, che ha ferito mortalmente con una freccia un'idra marina, riassume l'umore tutto liberty che traspira dagli ampi fogli tipo album in carta tirata a mano con barbe, un'edizione preziosa che rivela i gusti e le cultura del giovane direttore, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. Il mito di Poesia e della sua redazione in casa di Marinetti circola talmente negli ambienti letterari russi, che più tardi il gruppo futurista Mezzanino di Poesia di Vafim Sersenevi assumerà questo nome proprio in omaggio al periodico milanese. Per la varietà di contributi e tendenze, rispetto ad altre pubblicazioni del tempo (‘La Critica’, ‘Leonardo’, ‘Hermes’, ‘Il Regno’), ‘Poesia’ può sembrare un bazar casuale, senza precise coordinate programmatiche, eppure se la si valuta nell’insieme delle iniziative promosse lungo i quattro anni di vita [ ] si capisce che essa riesce a mettere in moto un originale sistema di comunicazione culturale. E dunque [ ] possiamo ritenere che la specificità del progetto vada individuata proprio nel complesso delle attività che puntano alla conquista del consenso e alla difesa di uno spazio, con criteri moderni, adatti al configurarsi di una società di massa con cui la cittadella delle lettere deve inevitabilmente fare ormai i conti.

Legatura coeva in mezza pelle con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso. Trascurabili segni del tempo alla legatura, peraltro esemplare fresco e ben conservato. Cesare Lombroso (Verona 1835 - Torino 1909) fu il più autorevole studioso italiano di antropologia criminale. Quest'opera, uscita postuma, è il frutto delle ultime fatiche dell'Autore basate su esperimenti condotti insieme alla medium Eusapia Paladino tra Napoli (1891), Milano, Genova e l'Institut General de Psychologie di Parigi. Dopo un atteggiamento iniziale di rifiuto nei confronti dei fenomeni spiritici, Lombroso giunse a teorizzare l'ipotesi di una forza psichica non giustificabile scientificamente, forse condizionato dal fatto di aver avuto la visione della madre durante una seduta spiritica.

         [Eragny Press] Histoire de la Reine du Matin et de Soliman Ben-Daoud

      London: Eragny Press, 1909. First edition. One of the great works of the press, limited to 130 copies on Arches, of which this is number 54 for M. F. Imhoof Bloomer (printed). Exquisitely bound in publisher's original limp olive-green lambskin gilt, overall repeat design of carnation and scrolled foliage. Book is printed in red and black, wood-engraved title printed in green and gold, wood-engraved border and initials printed in gold and colors, wood-engraved illustrations and tailpieces printed in green, all by Esther and Lucien Pissarro after Lucien Pissarro. Lucien Pissarro's recollection of the production of this book and its importance in the development of the Eragny Press are recorded in Notes on the Eragny Press: "For lack of capital, I was not able to print the books I wanted to produce until the French began, at last, to take an interest in the revival of printing. Mr Roger Marx, who knew of my efforts, introduced me to Mr Rodrigues, the President of the Society of the 'Cent Bibliophiles' in Paris. The latter asked me to produce a book for them, giving me carte blanche with regard to text, illustrations, size, paper, etc. This gave me the opportunity I wanted and with a quiet mind as to cost, I set to work on the production of the Historie de Soliman ... by Gérard de Nerval. For this book we used gold leaf in the printing of the initial letters. This gave us much trouble and we had to invent a technique to overcome the great difficulty of preventing the gold leaf from sticking to the wet hand-made paper, and after many attempts we were successful." The binding was executed to a design by Henri Marius-Michel and the art-nouveau style reflects the orientalist legend. A magnificent, fine copy of a high-point in book production.
