        Die Gross-Schmetterlinge der Erde. Eine systematische Bearbeitung der Gross-Schmetterlinge der ganzen Welt.

      Stuttgart, Kernen Verlag, 1909-1954. 20 volumes (bound in 36). 4to. Text and 1458 chromolithographed plates. Ten volumes bound in 18 publisher's uniform half calf or cloth bindings with gilt titles and decorations on spines; Ten volumes unbound in 18 portfolio's. A complete set of this rare work. The fine plates are made by process of 10-14 colour lithography, and its excellent quality has remained unsurpassed. The editor Seitz planned to finish the whole work in 1912. This proved to be quite unrealistic as publication stopped in 1954, and several volumes remained unfinished. The most important collections of butterflies were consulted including those of L.W. Rothschild of Tring, the British Museum, the Paris Natural History Museum, the Senckenberg Museum at Frankfurt, as well as collections in Tokyo, Hong-Kong, Australia, South- and North- America etc. The German edition is textually larger than the English one as it has the complete supplement of volume 4 (publ. in 1954), which remained unfinished in the English edition. The unfinished volumes 7 and 15 of the German edition also have more text. Apart from the 4th supplement-volume the same volumes remained unfinished as in the English edition. The work was published in 16 volumes with 4 supplements and is composed as follows: volumes 1-4, Palaearctic Fauna with 4 supplements; volumes 5-8, American Fauna (volumes 7 and 8 remained unfinished); volumes 9-12, Indo-Australian Fauna (volumes 11 and 12 remained unfinished); volumes 13-16 African Fauna (volumes 15 and 16 remained unfinished).

      London / New York: William Heinemann / Doubleday, Page & Co., , 1909. - "A Masterpiece of Sympathetic Understanding"Edition de LuxeSigned by the Artist[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. FOUQUE, De La Motte. Undine. Adapted from the German by W.L. Courtney and Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London / New York: William Heinemann / Doubleday, Page & Co., 1909. Edition de Luxe, limited to 1000 large-paper copies signed by the artist, this being copy no. 280. Quarto. Fifteen color plates mounted on brown art paper, with captioned tissue guards. Head- tailpieces. Original full vellum, vignette and lettering stamped in gilt. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Original ribbons ties. Bookplate. Minimal dusting to boards, otherwise a fine and bright copy."With the aqueous world of Undine Rackham found an opportunity to revive and develop his earlier art nouveau linear decorative drawing. especially in the need to incorporate waves and water currents in his pictures. He was thus able to connect a felicitious quality of decoration into his plates, was well as a new feeling for flat pattern which harks back to fin de siècle without being too openly mannered" (Gettings, Arthur Rackham, p. 123)."Although the waves and eddies of Undine bear the mark of Art Nouveau, the work was still another step forward for Rackham, the unity of conception in the line drawings and the colour plates, the assertion of contrast in the moods of the heroine, rendering it a masterpiece of sympathetic understanding" (Hudson, p. 80).Latimore and Haskell p. 34. Riall p. 93.

        Autograph musical quotation signed "Umberto Giordano."

      - 1 page of a bifolium (ca. 136 x 179 mm). Dated Milano, January 26, 1909. In black ink.Three measures from Scene V of the Second Episode of Giordano's opera Marcella. Notated in treble clef on one hand-drawn staff. In 4/4 time. With text "Vedi anch'io l'amor conosco" underlaid.Minor browning, heavier to blank final page; creased at folds, with three short tears, and remnants of adhesive, not affecting quotation. Marcella, first performed at the Teatro Lirico in Milan on November 9, 1907 to a libretto by L. Stecchetti, H. Cain, and J. Adenis, is "a story of love and renunciation across the class barrier. Giordano handled the late Romantic, emotionally vehement idiom of the giovane scuola with ease and fluency, being particularly skilful in weaving into his scores elements of local and historical colour. His stage sense is always sure, and his vocal writing unfailingly effective." Julien Budden in Grove Music Online.

        Fine original large silver print photograph of the distinguished Ukrainian-born American bass in profile by the noted Hungarian-born photographer Laszlo Willinger (1909-1989)

      - 390 x 290 mm. Signed by the photographer in white ink at the lower left corner. Vienna, ca. 1935. Slightly worn, with slight curl to edges. In very good condition overall. Kipnis was a member of both the Berlin Staatsoper (1930-1935) and the Vienna Staatsoper (1935-1938); he became an American citizen in 1934. "By then he had established himself everywhere as an outstanding Wagner and Mozart bass and a highly distinguished interpreter of Italian and Russian roles. He was much in demand at Bayreuth, singing there between 1927 and 1933, and appeared at the 1937 Salzburg Festival as Sarastro under Toscanini." Desmond Shawe-Taylor in Grove onlineWillinger, who left Berlin for Vienna in 1933, is particularly noted for his portrait photography; his subjects include Marlene Dietrich, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Max Reinhardt and many other notables of the 1930s and '40s. He moved to the United States in the mid-'30s and was one of the first Hollywood photographers to experiment in the use of color. A fine example of this important photographer's early work.

      Chelsea: The Ashendene Press, 1909. First Edition. One of 105 copies only, on paper of a total edition of 111 (6 on vellum). Subiaco type on specially-made Batchelor handmade paper with the watermark of a bugle and arrow above the printer’s initials. Full-page frontispiece and woodcuts throughout by Charles M. Gere, cut by W. H. Hooper. Large red initials by Graily Hewitt; headings and shoulder-notes in red; printed in double column (except for the Prefaces and the Index). Folio, 41.1 x 28.6 cm., original W. H. Smith binding of reddish brown niger morocco backed oak boards with metal clasps, leather richly braided with interlacing blind rules, solid gilt dots at the intersections, and a continuous vertical band at the outer side, made up of blind-tooled small dots and leaves. Inner side of both covers also decorated with leather as the outer sides, but without rules and dots. Spine in six compartments by five blind ruled raised bands (with raised head and tail-caps), title gilt in upper compartment, imprint at tail. Signed (monogram) in blind on the leather at the inner side of the front cover. Douglas Cockerell managed the W. H. Smith & Son bindery from 1905 to 1914. He later stated that all of the bindings signed with the 'WHS' stamp during those years were specially designed by him. xvi + 396. A very attractive copy. With the bookplate of James Curle, noted contributor to the Society of Antiquities of Scotland. Tutte le Opere stands as Ashendene’s crowning achievement, and one of the two or three greatest books of the fine-press movement (along with the Kelmscott Chaucer and the Doves Bible). Its quality was immediately apparent to one reviewer for the Times Literary Supplement, who raved, “Not perhaps since Boccaccio made with his own hand a copy of the ‘Divina Comedia,’ as a present for Petrarch, has such a labour of love been lavished on the works of Dante as in the sumptuous edition... which has just been issued from the Ashendene Press.... No other country, not even his own Italy, has laid a more splendid tribute at the feet of the Florentine poet.” The Ashendene Press was among of the most distinguished of the private presses which arose at the turn of the century, inspired by William Morris’ efforts to revive the moribund art of printing. Founded by C. H. St. John Hornby, managing director for a large British book distributor, the press was a highly personal project that produced works of great elegance and painstaking craftsmanship. Even more care than usual was lavished on this fine edition of Dante. As Hornby wrote in his bibliography of Ashendene, “ This book was by far the most ambitious effort of the Press and took three years to complete. It was the first book for which a professional compositor was employed for setting up the type.” Hornby’s dedication paid off handsomely.

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1909 - Octavo (217 × 132 mm). Contemporary red hard-grained half morocco, decorative gilt spine, top edges gilt, pink cloth sides. Contemporary bookplate with the initials W. F. G. Joints lightly worn, a couple of tiny scuffs to leather. An excellent copy. A handsomely bound, extra-illustrated copy, with a clipped Lincoln signature, and many additional portraits of Lincoln and his contemporaries. Also included is an autograph letter signed from the artist and engraver John Sartain (1808-1897) to the collector of historical portraits and custodian of the Lincoln Tomb at Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, Illinois, Herbert Wells Fay (1859-1949), commenting on one of his steel engraved portraits of Lincoln ("the gentleman for whom I engraved it told me it was the best likeness extant"), dated Philadelphia, 24 March 1895 (portrait not included). More importantly, tipped to the engraved portrait frontispiece is the signature of Abraham Lincoln ("A. Lincoln"), a little faint but perfectly legible, on heavy paper (perhaps cut from a portrait as there appears to be a plate mark). An evocative piece that enhances this popular collection of memoirs, which was first published in 1886.

A very slight hint of wear to some board corner tips, and slight shelving wear to bottom spine corner ends. (no tears or any real usage wear, although some of the volumes have small shelving nicks in top edge of spine end.).ALSO INCLUDED is the 1917 edition of the Harvard Shelf of Fiction, 20 volume set, in dark green with gold lettering.
