        The Home of the Motor Cab. The General Motor Cab Company Ltd. 1909

      London 1909 - Scarce, with no copies located on OCLC First Search. Oblong 4to. 24 by 29 cm. 56, [2] pp. Fourteen of the pages are bright color plates generally depicting the smart set riding in beautiful vehicles, but also an illustration of the company's expansive headquarters and garage located in Kennington, a neighborhood in South London next to Vauxhall. The text presents both matter-of-fact info about the company's taxi services -- charges, policies, etc. -- but also some lighter breezer fare on such topics as a trip to the Channel or Coventry. Red cloth cover heavily soiled. Endpapers, title and final leaf grubby. Otherwise, lower band of leaves with hint of waviness that might come from a passing exposure to moisture, and perhaps a touch of soiling here and there. A few other finger smudges, minor closed tears and light wear besides. Notwithstanding these issues, a very handsome sales promotion for a cab company that was not just selling itself but also the notion of the horseless carriage as a luxury alternative to the horse drawn vehicle not yet fully vanquished in metropolitan use.

In line with the European, American, and Canadian exploitation of Mexico, Canadian and European investors formed the Mexico Electric Tramways Company in 1898, electrified and expanded Mexico's tram lines, and in 1906 a "group of Canadian investors organized Mexico Tramways Company (without the word Electric) in Toronto.... acquired 75% of MET's stock, took control of its tramway system and developed Necaxa dam and power plant in Puebla state," (see Allen Morrison: The Tramways of Mexico City). The Mexican Revolution put a hold on expansion plans announced about the time of this publication, and the investors would not see any dividends for over three decades.

        William Powell Frith

      [Blythburgh?], 23 June 1909. One rare and personal photograph of famous English painter William Powell Frith (1819-1909), taken less than five months before his death. Mounted in a period round wooden frame, with outside diameter measuring 24 cm. Image showing behind glass measures 14,5 cm in diameter. Inscribed in manuscript to verso wooden mount. This photograph is one of the last photographs taken of artist William Powell Frith. He has been described as the "greatest British painter of the social scene since Hogarth". Seated with Miss Marie Ellen Seymour Lucas (1879-1951) on her wedding day (on this day becoming Mrs. Laurence Grubbe), Mr. Frith and the bride's father John Seymour Lucas, R.A. (1849-1923) were dear friends, and connected professionally through the Royal Academy of Arts. Frith was also closely acquainted with the groom and Lucas' son-in-law, Laurence Carrington Grubbe (1854-1912), he too, an artist and member of the Royal Academy of Arts. [The National Portrait Gallery holds this same image.] From Wikipedia: William Powell Frith (1819-1909) specialised in genre subjects and panoramic narrative works of life in the Victorian era. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1853, presenting The Sleeping Model as his Diploma work. Born in Aldfield, North Yorkshire, Frith was encouraged to take up art by his father, a hotelier in Harrogate. He moved to London in 1835 where he began his formal art studies at Sass's Academy in Charlotte Street, before attending the Royal Academy Schools. Frith started his career as a portrait painter and first exhibited at the British Institution in 1838. In the 1840s, he often based works on the literary output of writers such as Charles Dickens, whose portrait he painted, and Laurence Sterne. He was a member of The Clique, which also included Richard Dadd. The principal influence on his work was the hugely popular domestic subjects painted by Sir David Wilkie. Wilkie's famous painting The Chelsea Pensioners was a spur to the creation of Frith's own most famous compositions. Following the precedent of Wilkie, but also imitating the work of his friend Dickens, Frith created complex multi-figure compositions depicting the full range of the Victorian class system, meeting and interacting in public places. In Ramsgate Sands, Life at the Seaside (1854) he depicted visitors and entertainers at the seaside resort. He followed this with The Derby Day, depicting scenes among the crowd at the race at Epsom Downs, which was based on photographic studies by Robert Howlett. This 1858 composition was bought by Jacob Bell for £1,500. It was so popular that it had to be protected by a specially installed rail when shown at the Royal Academy of Arts. Another well-known painting was The Railway Station, a scene of Paddington Station. In 1865, he was chosen to paint the Marriage of the Prince of Wales.

        Draught for "Der Rosenkavalier". Autograph manuscript with autograph lines by Richard Strauss on the reverse. [Rodaun, June 1909].

      1909. Oblong 4to. 1¾ pp. Hofmannsthal's early draught for the lovers' duet between Sophie and Octavian, from Act II of the "Rosenkavalier", after the silver rose is presented: both lovers sing twelve lines each which oppose and yet complement each other: "Sophie. Dahin muss ich zurück / Dahin und müsst ich völlig sterben auf dem Weg [...]". - "Octavian. Ich war ein Bub / Wars gestern oder wars vor einer Ewigkeit [...]". As evidenced by the caption, this is the "addendum to page 6" (of the libretto) which Richard Strauss had requested and Hofmannsthal had supplied with his letter of June 26. It was used for the final version of the opera, albeit in an abridged and revised form. The present text corresponds to the suggestions which Strauss made in his letter to Hofmannsthal written on July 9, 1909 for a revised version of Act II. - A precious document of the collaboration between Strauss and Hofmannsthal on what remains one of the most successful operas of the 20th century. - Provenance: from the collection of Strauss's biographer Willy Schuh.

        The Development of Shakespeare as a Dramatist. & LEE, Sir Sidney. A Life of William Shakespeare. New and revised edition.

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1907 & 1909 - 2 works, octavo. Original green and red cloth, spines lettered and ruled in gilt, covers ruled in blind, publisher's device gilt to front covers, Lee's work with additional gilt title, top edges gilt. Baker: front inner hinge split but holding, short closed tear to folding view not affecting image, small mark to p. 33 not affecting text, short closed tear to top edge of sig. D3, the text spared, very pale tide-mark to lower margin from sig. F4, sigs. N3 and O2 slightly torn in gutter costing a few letters (the sense easily guessed). O7-8, T6 damp-stained. Lee: extremities and joints lightly rubbed, small abrasion to front joint, rear cover lightly marked, marking to verso of half-title, pp. 276-9 slightly foxed from the plate, p. 397 finger-marked in margin. Both good copies. Baker with frontispiece, folding colour view of London in 1588, 28 further plates, mostly after contemporary engravings, 2 double-page; Lee with frontispiece, 5 plates, one line of manuscript facsimile to the text. T. S. Eliot's copies, with his engraved armorial bookplate to the front pastedown of each volume, and his inked ownership inscription dated 1909 to the front pastedown of George Pierce Baker's The Development of Shakespeare as a Dramatist, which is a first edition, and his pencilled ownership inscription to Sir Sidney Lee's A Life of William Shakespeare, a revised edition of a work first published in 1898, and which "dominated the field for the whole of the twentieth century" (ODNB); there are pencilled underlinings throughout Baker's work, and the plate of the De Wit drawing of the Swan Theatre in 1596, facing page 210, bears several annotations in a hand which might be ascribed to a young Eliot. A note at the bottom reads "a permanent stage on temporary foundations", and figures in the hut and on stage are respectively labelled "note twist of perspective to show trumpeter" and "maybe Olivia, Maria & Malvolio crossgartered in the garden?", a reference to Twelfth Night. Eliot started at Harvard in 1906. Taking advantage of the new elective system of course offerings introduced by Charles Eliot, his cousin and the president of the university, he chose courses in medieval history, Greek literature, government, German grammar and prose, and English literature. George Pierce Baker was one of four lecturers on the English literature paper (see Miller, T. S. Eliot: The Making of an American Poet, 1888-1922, pp. 79-80). Eliot's first year of study was unfocused and he ended up on academic probation, though soon recovered and in 1908 made the discovery that changed his life: a copy of Arthur Symons's The Symbolist Movement in Literature, which he found in the Harvard Union Library, and which left him convinced of his poetic calling. In his final year, 1909-10, he read for the MA in English Studies, taking Baker's paper entitled "The Drama in England from the Miracle Plays to the Closing of the Theatres". This appears to have been Eliot's introduction to vernacular medieval drama, which he explored some twenty-five years later with his own play, Murder in the Cathedral, about the assassination of Thomas Becket. By 1909 "his vocation had been confirmed: he joined the board and was briefly secretary of Harvard's literary magazine, the Harvard Advocate, and he could recommend to his classmate William Tinckom-Fernandez the last word in French sophistication—the vers libre of Paul Fort and Francis Jammes" (ODNB). His work on the Advocate was his apprenticeship for later positions as assistant editor of The Egoist from 1917 to 1919, and then as editor of his own journal, The Criterion, from 1922 to 1939. In 1905 Eliot's mother wrote to the headmaster of Milton Academy, which he attended for a year before Harvard, claiming that her teenage son had read and memorised most of Shakespeare's works. In fact Shakespeare's unchallenged position at the heart of the Western canon weighed heavily on the young Eliot, who later wrote that "the only pleasure I got from Sha [Attributes: First Edition]

Translated by Mrs. Edgar Lucas. London: Constable & Company Ltd., 1909. Limited to 750 copies signed by Arthur Rackham, this being copy no, 424. Large quarto (11 3/8 x 8 7/8 in; 290 x 222 mm.). xv, [1], 325, [1, colophon] pp. Forty mounted color plates, all with tissue guards printed in red, and forty-five drawings in black and white of which nine are full-page.

Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, marbled end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. Joints expertly and almost invisibly repaired. A near fine copy in a handsome binding.?Reprinted from the 1900 edition, with added illustrations and larger pages? (Latimore and Haskell), and others redrawn and colored. "Rackham's illustrations to Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen or Poe show him at his most imaginative" (Hamilton, p. 11)."The first year of the new century marked a turning point in Rackham's career, for in it were published his original illustrations for Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm...The book was immediately successful, and its publication marked the beginning of Rackham's lasting fame. Two new editions were called for within ten years. At intervals from 1900 onwards Rackham worked on the original drawings, partially or entirely redrawing some of them on colour, adding new ones in colour and in back-and-white, and generally overhauling them as a set, until the final and best-known edition, of 1909, contained forty coloured illustrations and fifty-five line drawings...a comparison between the first and the last editions of his Grimm emphasizes the remarkable progress that Rackham made in a decade" (Hudson, p. 47-8).The great Christopher Lewis began his career at the internationally renowned Bayntun-Riviere Bindery of Bath, England, during the early 1960s as a finisher. In the 1970s, he established his own bindery and further developed his masterful inlay and gilt work, incorporating innovative painted highlights for heightened dramatic visual effect.Latimore and Haskell, p. 34.
