        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]

      1909. The "Final and Best-Known Edition"Limited To 750 Copies Signed By Rackham[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. [GRIMM, Jakob and Wilhelm]. The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm. 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. Bound ca. 1910 in three-quarter purple morocco over marbled boards ruled in gilt. 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.

        Lederstrumpf-Erzählungen. Übersetzt und bearbeitet von F. Federn. Mit Original-Lithographien von Max Slevogt.

      P. Cassirer, Berlin 1909 - Berlin, P. Cassirer 1909. 36 x 47,5 cm. (8), 473, (7) S. mit Titelvignette, 166 von E.R. Weiß gezeichneten Initialen, jeweils über kleine Orig.-Lithographien Slevogts gedruckt, 52 ganzseit. u. 110 kleineren Orig.-Lithographien sowie 1 weiteren (nicht mitpaginierten) Lithographie von Slevogt. Taubenblauer ORohleinenbd. mit goldgepr. Deckelvignette u. Filetenvergoldung auf Vorder- u. Rückdeckel sowie dem Rücken. Einband stellenw. etwas verblaßt, Kapitale mit Läsuren, eine Beschädigung an der Oberkante des Vorderdeckels etwas unsachgemäß repapiert, unter Verwendung eines Blautons, der dunkler ist, als der Einband. Innen absolut tadellos u. fleckenfrei, allenfalls die unbeschnittenen Büttenränder minimal nachgedunkelt. Rodenberg 452.1. Schauer II.84 (mit Abb.) Rodenberg u. Schauer nennen jeweils fälschlicherweise 180 Lithographien. Feilchenfeldt/Brandis 35.0.B. * 1. Druck der Pan-Presse. Eins von 250 Exemplaren der Normalausgabe, im Druckvermerk von Slevogt signiert. Unser Ex. trägt die Nr. 287, das beruht auf der Tatsache, daß die Normalausgaben ab der Nummer 61 numeriert wurden (siehe dazu den Kommentar in Feilchenfeldt/Brandis S. 114). - Satz der Texte aus der Modernen Monotype-Fraktur, gedruckt auf feingeripptes Bütten, wobei die Lithographien sämtlich auf der Handpresse abgezogen wurden. Einbandgestaltung u. die zweifarb. floralen Vorsätze stammen von Karl Walser, Haupt- u. Zwischentitel sowie die Initialen zeichnete E.R. Weiß. - Eines der illustratorischen Hauptwerke Slevogts, voller Leichtigkeit, Esprit und Spontaneität. In diesem Zusammenhang ist interessant, was Slevogt in einem seiner zwei Klebebände notiert u. Emil Waldmann in "Max Slevogt als Illustrator" (1912) ausgeführt haben: "Die erste Aufzeichnung und der Plan für den Lederstrumpf mit Lithographien entstanden 1907 unvermittelt in einer Nacht, als mir zufällig das Jugendbuch wieder in die Hände kam. Die Entwürfe etwas größeren Formats begleiteten dann in unregelmäßigen Zwischenräumen die Arbeit an den Steinen bis zum Abschluß des Ganzen." (Januar 1910; Slevogt). - Bei der Lektüre und dem Wiederlesen hat Slevogt zahlreiche kleine Bleistiftskizzen angefertigt, jede in ein paar Minuten. "In einer einzigen Nacht war das Werk auf diese Weise im Kern fertiggestellt. Die meisten dieser Skizzen haben in dieser ersten Form dann große endgültige Gestalt angenommen, natürlich bereichert, ausgeglichen, durchgearbeitet und verfeinert. Aber das Wesentliche ist fast immer in der Skizze da!" (Waldmann). - Slevogt hat sich überwiegend der Technik der Kreidelithographie bedient, doch enthält der Band auch Tusche-, Tusche-Kreide-, Tusche-Schabeisen- u. einige Federlithographien. Die 166 kleinen, den Initialen unterlegten Lithographien sind mehr als Zierrat, vielmehr eigenständige Skizzen und Illustrationen, die jeweils Bezug auf das nachfolgende Kapitel nehmen. Die ganzseitigen Lithographien wurden auf verso unbedruckte Büttenbogen gedruckt, die kleineren (überwiegend halbseitigen) stehen meist am Kopf der Seite oder sind von Text umflossen, womit Slevogt bereits auf seine gestalterische Idee vorgreift, daß Text und Graphik nicht strikt getrennt sein müssen, sondern zusammen eine Einheit bilden sollten.

        Russian Orthodox Monasteries].

      Soykin Skt. Peterburg 1909 - Octavo (22.5 x 16 cm). Title, 712, viii pp., multiple illustrations in text; ink stamps to title, pp. 5 and viii. Contemporary brown half caf over marbled boards, brown calf label with gilt lettering to spine. Richly illustrated record of all the Russian Empire monasteries subordinating to the Sinod Office at the beginning of XX century. The book was based on the extensive research of the published and unpublished historical records, as well as information and photographs provided by monasteries. Each record contains information on the history of a monastery, list of the important shrines preserved there, and its location. The monasteries are grouped by the provinces listed in the alphabetical order. As the work was published just some years before the establishment of the communist rule, which often purposefully destroyed monasteries and shrines, it has a great value as a record of the vanished historical monuments and spiritual centers of the Imperial Russia.

The envelope has been affixed to the inside cover of the pamphlet.In full, ""I received this morning the pamphlet which you were good enough to send me, containing your address at St. Augustine on February 12th, and I thank you for it. Evidences of the esteem in which my father's memory is held by his countrymen have come to me in great numbers during the centennial season. They have been most gratefully received, and none has given me greater satisfaction than the expressions which have come to me from those who, like yourself, bore a conspicuous part in those troublesome years. I have been especially interested in the reminiscence of your first visit to my father, and I can quite understand how much pleasure you get from such recollections.

Wherry, informing him that his ""admirable address on your personal recollections of Abraham Lincoln, and as requested by you, have forwarded the same to the Historical Society of Pennsylvania for its collections … before giving Captain John P. Green an opportunity to read it. Captain Green was until recently First Vice-President of this company, served as a staff officer during the Civil War in the Army of the Potomac…"" On ""Broad Street Station / Philadelphia"" letterhead, the corporate headquarters of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company.In the letter above, Robert Todd Lincoln wrote Gen. Wherry he was ""especially interested in the reminiscence of your first visit to my father…""From Wherry's address about that visit. In part, ""In October I went to Washington, on advice of friends, to seek an appointment in the regular Army … called on Mr. Edward Bates, the Attorney-General, who had been a friend of my father's, and I made known to him my wishes. Mr. Bates said it was Cabinet Day, and if I would come to him about 11:30, we would go together to the White House … Mr. Lincoln was seated at the table about which the Cabinet was to gather, but he rose to greet Mr. Bates and I was presented, with some flattering allusion to my association with Lyon, my participation in his last battle and my aspirations. I was struck by Mr. Lincoln's ready sympathy, his naturalness and freedom from pose. I was struck by his stature, and surprised to find his face lighted up with interest and geniality, was not homely, as I had been led to expect. He moved to a fireplace in the room, pointed to a chair near the chimney corner for Mr. Bates, to one near the center of the fireplace for me, and seated himself in the corner opposite Mr. Bates. He stretched his legs across the fireplace, and I thought of a telescope being pushed out as he did so. He leaned his head back on the chair and placed his hands locked behind it, and then said to me quite gently and thoughtfully, 'And you were in the bloody battle of Wilson's Creek? Tell us about it.""…""(3) ""Abraham Lincoln."" Typed SpeechUnsigned, 5 pages, 8.5"" x 11"", separate sheets, with four ink cross-outs and 11 ink additions plus 26 word Ralph Waldo Emerson quote in ink by Gen. Wherry: ""It was said of Mr Lincoln by Emerson, - 'His heart was as great as the world but without room to retain the memory of a wrong.'"" St. Augustine, Florida, February 15th, 1912. Tied together at top with red ribbon. Vertical folds at left edges. Mounting remnants on blank verso of fifth page. Noted in pencil at conclusion by Gen. Wherry: ""Delivered before G.A.R. at St. Augustine, Florida."" We have been unable to find any Robert Todd Lincoln letter ever offered for sale referring to how his father's memory is held by Americans. This letter, written during the centennial month of Abraham Lincoln's birth, also mentions his son's special interest in a Civil War general's first impression upon meeting President Lincoln in The White House (present)."
