        Undine

      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. 226. Quarto. Fifteen color plates mounted on brown art paper, with captioned tissue guards.

Covers decoratively bordered in gilt, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board edges and turn-ins, cockerel end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. There is a very slight 2 1/2 inch crack on the upper joint (but still sound), otherwise a very fine copy. Housed in a fleece-lined, light blue cloth slip-case."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.

        [Original Photo Album of the Construction of the Madeira-Mamore Railroad]

      (ca 1909-1912). Very good. Small oblong 8vo. album. Black textured board, 5.5? x 8? approx. ?Brazil? in white album pen to front cover. Photographic map mounted to front pastedown. With 61 vintage photographs glue-mounted recto and verso, plus one remarkable 5-panel, 2.5? fold-out panorama of Porto Velho. Most images 5.75? x 6.75?, some smaller. Eleven hand-colored. Most numbered in the negative. All clearly captioned in English. Rubbed at joints; some bumping, wear. Binding cocked. A few leaves tender at gutter. Apparently complete. Very good. The construction of the Madeira-Mamore Railroad through the Brazilian Amazon is considered one of the most deadly and impressive engineering feats of the 20th century. More than 6,000 workers died over the course of its 230-mile construction, one ? so the legend goes ? for every railroad tie laid. The line was intended to transport rubber from remote Brazilian forests for export, but not long after its completion in 1912 the center of rubber production shifted to Asia. Nevertheless, the railway was a defining event of Brazilian and South American identity. And the album here offered contains beautiful, accomplished images of the project, taken by official photographer Dana B. Merrill. Merrill was contracted to document the project in 1909 and stayed through completion, eventually taking more than 2,000 photos (fewer than 200 are known today). Images in this album include the hospital ward, worker's cafe, bridges and other rail structure, engines and train-cars, native Caripuna Indians, various camps and laborers, jungle scenes, and like. Many of these appeared in the two most comprehensive accounts of the Madeira-Mamore: Frank Kravingny's THE JUNGLE ROUTE (Tremayne, 1940) and TRACKS IN THE AMAZON by Gary and Rose Needleman (Utah, 2014). However, our research suggests at least several of these photographs are previously unknown. An important collection of one of the major construction projects of the last century, taken by an innovative photographer, of whom foremost Merrill expert Pedro Ribeiro Moreira Neto has written: ?How then did these dramatic and powerful images emerge ? since we find no precedent ? if not from the genius of the photographer? What other photographer could have produced images of such sophisticated technical quality[...]?? OCLC lists only two substantial collections of Merrill?s photographs: NYPL and the National Library of Brazil.

        Two sheets signed by the entire Shore Party from Shackleton's British Antarctic Expedition 1907-1909.

      N.p., n.d. [1909] - Two preprinted sheets, each approx. 8 x 10", with original signatures in pen to rectos only, in very good condition. These sheets bear the signatures of Shackleton, Priestley, Wild, Joyce, Mawson, and all other members of the Shore Party from Shackleton's Nimrod expedition (the signatures of Mawson and Edgeworth David, the two Australians with the expedition, are on the second sheet). The sheets are unused examples of the signed leaves found in the Deluxe limited edition of Shackleton's Heart of the Antarctic (the pages are bound in at the beginning of the third volume, entitled The Antarctic Book). The existence of these unbound examples indicates that the deluxe version of Shackleton’s book did not sell out at the time of publication (300 copies were produced) - certainly, copies were still being advertised for sale as late as 1916.

      1909. Lettera autografa ad inchiostro in formato cm.25x15,7, compilata solo al recto su 11 righe, su carta intestata "Torre del Lago - Toscana": "Lunedì faccio tela alle Folaghe a invito. Se tu vuoi venire mi farai gran piacere. Porta armi e cartucce buone ... tuo Giacomo". Al verso indicazione del destinatario, francobolli e timbri. Buona grafia, ben leggibile.

La "tela alle folaghe" è un tipo di caccia che si praticava abitualmente sul Lago di Massaciuccoli, e viene eseguita da vari cacciatori che circondano con barchini gli stormi di folaghe chiudendole in cerchio fino a farle volar via.

        The Faerie Queene [2 volumes]

      The University Press, Cambridge, UK 1909 - "‘Great Lady of the greatest Isle, whose light; Like Phoebus lampe throughout the world doth shine’ 'The Faerie Queene' was one of the most influential poems in the English language. Dedicating his work to Elizabeth I, Spenser brilliantly united Arthurian romance and Italian renaissance epic to celebrate the glory of the Virgin Queen. Each book of the poem recounts the quest of a knight to achieve a virtue: the Red Crosse Knight of Holinesse, who must slay a dragon and free himself from the witch Duessa; Sir Guyon, Knight of Temperance, who escapes the Cave of Mammon and destroys Acrasia’s Bowre of Bliss; and the lady-knight Britomart’s search for her Sir Artegall, revealed to her in an enchanted mirror. Although composed as a moral and political allegory, 'The Faerie Queene’s' magical atmosphere captivated the imaginations of later poets from Milton to the Victorians." [Pub.Info] Six books of an intended, but not written 12 books; Most reknown of Spenser's work; An epic poem allegory of Queen Elizabeth and Tudor England.There is a protective mylar cover on each volume. 1ST THUS.

Octavo (8 3/8 x 5 1/4 inches; 213 x 135 mm.). xvi, 389, [1, blank], [1, Map], [1, imprint], [2, advertisements] pp. With 104 photogravure illustrations (some full-page) 8 maps and General Map of British East Africa at end.Publisher's blue cloth, front cover with a gilt camel and tribesman within a double circular frame, spine ruled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt. Front inner hinge cracked but still a near fine copy with the just the mildest of rubbing to cloth extremities.Nyika is a Swahili word meaning "bush" or "hinterland" (of the East African coast)."In the following pages I have endeavoured to give a plain account of the trials and adventures which befell me on two recent expeditions through the nyika, or wilderness, in British East Africa. On the first trip there were three of us, and all returned safely to civilisation, although dangers were not wholly absent. On the second and longer expedition there were also three Europeans, but, alas! only two got back, the nyika having claimed the third; nor was the god of the wilds content with this sacrifice, for, in addition, he claimed several of my native followers. He laid his deadly grip on me as well, but I was wrested from him by the care and attention of my companion, to whose skilful nursing I feel I owe my life." (Preface)Lieutenant-Colonel John Henry Patterson, DSO (1867-1947), known as J. H. Patterson, was a British soldier, hunter, author and Christian Zionist, best known for his book The Man-Eaters of Tsavo (1907), which details his experiences while building a railway bridge over the Tsavo river in Kenya in 1898-99. In the First World War, Patterson was the commander of the Jewish Legion, "the first Jewish fighting force in nearly two millennia. And as such, he can be called the godfather of the Israeli army."

        Draught for "Der Rosenkavalier". Autograph manuscript with autograph lines by Richard Strauss on the reverse.

      [Rodaun, June 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.

Russell, Gollings, and de Young." Here the emphasis is on recreational possibilities for the Caucasian tourist, including golf, swimming, tennis, fishing. In front of the title cartouche at lower right is pictured a group of Native American Indians (being filmed by a Caucasian tourist) with the artist at work on his canvas. The particular edition was issued on thicker paper and with no text on the verso (as opposed to the more frequently encountered map, the centrefold of a tourist pamphlet. .
