        Heidi

      The first illustrated edition, in a Royal binding by Riviere with the sovereign crown to the front board, with the Cipher of Princess Mary(only daughter of George V) dated 1909 (later Viscountess Lascelles and later still, Countess of Harewood) to the front pastedown, also with the bookplate and Red Seal Monogram of her eldest son, Viscount Lascelles (b. 1923) to the front endpaper and pastedown, suggesting that he either inherited the book, or perhaps received it as a gift. Princess Mary was born in 1897, so the 1909 date and the Sovereign crown would indicate that this was a present from George V and Queen Mary of Teck during her twelfth year. Full vellum binding, externally with some very minor marks, bumps and rubs, also slight bowing of the boards. The text block, with gilt to all edges, is lightly toned, but free from foxing. An uncommon edition of Heidi, in a beautiful binding with a superb association and provenance.

        Korrespondenz des Verlegers mit dem Bruder von Peter Altenberg. Wien Berlin 1919-1920. 9 Stücke, 13 S., meist 4°.

      - Von Quellenwert über 'Bilderbögen des kleinen Lebens' (1909), dem einzigen Titel Altenbergs, der nicht bei S. Fischer erschienen war und eine heftige Auseinandersetzung zwischen Reiss und Altenbergs Bruder und Nachlassverwalter hervorgerufen hat. Einer der ersten Titel des jungen Reiss, einen Monat nach Verlagsgründung 1908, erlebte im Erscheinungsjahr 1909 drei Auflagen. Nach Altenbergs Tod zehn Jahre später, übernimmt sein Bruder die Nachlassverwaltung (dessen Konkurs 1904 hatte den Dichter in Einkommensschwierigkeiten versetzt) und reklamiert die seither ausgebliebenen Abrechnungen. Die Bilderbögen waren für Reiss bewilligt worden, weil in der dort gleichfalls erscheinenden 'Schaubühne' P.A. eine Veröffentlichungsmöglichkeit fand und für das Buch 30% Autorenhonorar zugebilligt erhalten hatte. Der zweiseitige Verlagsvertrag vom 19.12.1908 ist in einer Typoskript Abschrift hier vorhanden, das Original verschollen. Engländer (Typoskript Durchschläge) 24.4.1919: ". welche Auflage die letzte ist, die Sie als beinahe vergriffen bezeichnen u.zw. die wievielte und aus welchem Jahr stammend." - 10.5.1919: "Ich bin daher nicht gesonnen, vom Honorar das geringste nachzulassen". - 11.6.1919: "Ihre Bemerkungen . hätten Ihrerseits einen sehr niedergehaltenen Vorschlag für die Ablösung des Buches erwarten lassen, aber nicht nach Ihren Grobheiten noch ein Anbot meinerseits." - Erich Reiss, 20.5.1920, Brief m.e.U. Briefkopf: "Bei uns aber besteht nach wie vor der Wunsch, mit Ihnen nichts weiter zu tun zu haben ." - Engländer, 2.6.1920, eigenh. Brief m.U. 3 S. Briefkopf: "Ihrem Br. v. 20.d.M. zufolge gebe ich Ihnen zur Neuauflage von Peter Altenberg, 'Bilderbögen des kleinen Lebens' eine Nachfrist bis 30. November 1920 . Sie aber protestieren! Sie wünschen ein Anbot dafür; ich aber mache keines mehr .". - Reiss, 16.10.1920, Brief m.e.U. 1 S. Briefkopf: ". in Verbindung mit der 30%igen Honorarbelastung unmöglich, eine Kalkulationsbasis zu finden, so dass wir zu unserem Bedauern von einer Neu-Herausgabe des Buches Abstand nehmen müssen".

        Zeppelin.

      Paris. No date. 1909. - Color lithograph, matted, visible image approximately 32 1/2 x 15 inches. The lithograph was matted and framed in the 1980s, but will be removed from the frame for delivery. Visible image has 9 small foxing spots in the image; print has not been examined outside the frame, but based on other prints framed at the same time and place, there is a toned line on the print along the mat window edge and brown adhesive paper tape along the edges of the sheet where the print was attached to the backing. The verso of the print is browned from the wood backing that was used in the frame. The lithograph could be deacidified and the tape removed; however as it stands it would display very well with the light brown line from matburn either covered or used as an accent line around the image. A particularly striking image of a Zeppelin flying over what is likely the Rhine river, complete with a castle in the cliffs and storks flying. Ernest Montaut (1879-1909) and his atelier produced a series of striking lithographic posters documenting the excitement engendered by new developments at the turn of the twentieth century: automobiles, planes and dirigibles.

A most scarce and historically important binding. A superb, fine copy, with only the faintest wear on cover gilt blocking, an unavoidable circumstance.

        Mammoth Plate Photograph of the School Children's Parade at the Hudson-Fulton Celebration

      New York. 1909. Large albumen image on thick card. Image is 13.75" x 11" on 20" x 16" mount. small chip and small, light dampstain in right margin not effecting the image, Image is perhaps a little faded, but clear and very near fine. Slightly faded handwritten caption in ink beneath the image: "Hudson-Fulton Celebration / School Children's Parade / October 2, 1909 / Head of Column - 16th District." [With Souvenir Program]: Historical Pageant. Hudson-Fulton Celebration. September 25 to October 9, 1909. New York: Redfield Brothers, 1909. Small quarto. 64pp., illustrated. Small chips at the edges of the yapped wrappers, very good.The image shows a dozen or so bowler and top-hatted men standing in front of a block long or longer row of children in marching order, many with small American flags. Probably taken from the side of the road, the warehouse walls in the background are neatly covered with huge posters for theatrical performances. Some distinctive buildings in the background lead us to believe that anyone with a reasonable knowledge of New York landmarks could identify the location with relative ease. There is some indication from signs on the buildings that this might be 14th Street.The Hudson-Fulton Celebration was a fortnight long, beyond-elaborate commemoration of the 300th Anniversary of Henry Hudson's discovery of the Hudson River, and the 100th Anniversary of Robert Fulton's first successful use of the paddle wheel steam boat, and was used as a showcase to display the importance of New York City in all it's might and splendor. The parades showcased various periods in New York history, and were interspersed by large marching groups from ethnic social clubs: Irish, Italian, Dutch, Polish, etc. It also showcased various modes of transportation and featured Wilbur Wright flying up the Hudson River.The Celebration was commemorated in many ways including a run of commemorative stamps, and innumerable postcards. However, this is a wonderful image of what would have to be one of the more prosaic of the groups, sandwiched we assume between the elaborate floats depicting historical events, and elaborately costumed clubs. An image of rank-upon-rank of school children in an unusually large format, and is thus very uncommon. .

        PARIS

      London: Adam and Charles Black, 1909. First Edition, Large Paper, Limited and Best edition, the Edition-de-Luxe on handmade paper and limited to 500 hand-numbered copies. SIGNED by the Artist. With 75 beautiful plates in colour with captioned guards and line drawings throughout the text all but Mortimer Menpes. 4to, publisher's original white cloth lettered and decorated in gilt and red on the upper cover and spine. xii, 185 pp. A beautiful volume, bright and clean internally, the plates and pages near as pristine, some minor darkening or handling to the binding as would be expected of white cloth only. FIRST EDITION, LARGE PAPER, LIMITED. THE EDITION-DE-LUXE ON THE CITY OF LIGHT MAGNIFICENTLY CAPTURED IN COLOUR BY RENOWNED ARTIST MORTIMER MEMPES. The accompanying text is his daughter's reflections of the city with a special emphasis on its life and art. Between the two so many aspects and sights and memories of Paris are here captured forever. We see the great gardens, cathedrals and other landmarks of course, but equally important to the Menpes were the potato peelers and gossipers, fruits and markets and flowers, the bookseller and fish stalls and factories. This is one of Adam and Charles Black's finest productions, well fitting to the city it illustrates.
