        Profili. Formiggini. Raccolta. 171 Volumi.

      Modena - Genova - Roma - Milano, A. F. Formiggini Editore / Bietti, 1909 - 1938. COLLEZIONE COMPLETA DEI 129 VOLL + 42 DOPPI. I Profili, accuratamente impressi in rosso e nero, sono graziosi volumetti elzeviriani ben rilegati in pergamena papirus, adorni di illustrazioni e fregi originali e stampati su carta filigranata di lusso; vivaci, sintetiche e suggestive rievocazioni di figure attraenti e significative. Per la verità, nei trent?anni di attività editoriale solo il formato rimase immutato (cm. 17x10,5 circa), insieme ai fregi di copertina, opera di Artioli, e all?impostazione grafica generale. I materiali impiegati mutarono sulla base delle possibilità di approvvigionamento dell?editore. Si ebbero così tre serie: i primi numeri sino al 43 sono legati in pergamena vegetale fissata su cartoncino rigido; dal n. 44 al n. 62 compreso, per l?impossibilità di reperire sul mercato la pergamena - papirus, si hanno vari tipi di legatura in cartoncino rigido e morbido; dal n. 63 al n. 129 i Profili acquistano la forma definitiva con copertina in pergamena fissata su cartoncino morbido e la prima carta non è incollata. I 129 volumi che compongono la collana si dispongono in un arco di tempo che va dal 1909 al 1938 (il n. 129, Chiabrera, reca le indicazioni: finito di stampare il 31 ottobre 1938). Noi ne possediamo 171 (numeri doppi: 4, 6, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 29, 32, 34, 35, 37, 40, 41, 43, 48, 49, 54, 73, 97, 112, 119, 121, 127), (numeri tripli: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8).

        Contributions to'Twenty Five Cricket Stories': Tom, Dick and Harry; The Wire-Pullers; The Lost Bowlers; How Pillingshoot Scored

      London: George Newnes, c.1909., 1909. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION, EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE. Small octavo, pp. 208. Contains four Wodehouse stories, three of which are published for the first time in book form. How Pillingshoot Scored had already appeared in Tales of St. Austins, 1903. These Newnes-period Wodehouse stories were collected in this rare omnibus. Apart from the publisher's file copy, we are unable to find a note of any example offered for sale or appearing at auction. The bibliographer McIlvaine mentions the title, but does not provide a description. A companion volume Twenty Five Football Stories was also mooted by Newnes the following year – again, this has proved virtually impossible to locate. Bound in publisher's illustrated card covers housed in collector's folding box. Some rubbing and wear to joints, chip/loss along lower portion of cover, one long tear to joint extending to spine and rear. A remarkable survival of an exceptionally rare book. McIlvaine E126/127

        Zopf und Empire in Mittel- und Norddeutschland. 2 Vol.-set (Complete)

      Leipzig: Baumgärtner's Buchhandlung, 1909. First edition. Hardcover. g+ to near fine. Folio. Part 1: 16pp., 90 plates, Part 2: 16pp., 90 plates. Two portfolios in original three quarter green cloth over green paper-covered board with gilt lettering on cover. Decorative paper-covered inside covers and flaps. Introduction by the author and list of halftone plates and in-text photographs with descriptive text in both volumes. Impressive collection of "Zopfbauten" presented in 180 skillful halftone plates based on the 1906 edition of the same title. Zopfstil is an architectural style developing in the transition from Rococo to Classicism in the late 18th Century. Characteristic for this period is a certain simplicity in design and the participation of the well-to-do middle class in defining the period as opposed to the dominant aristocracy up to that point. The images are espically useful for architects working with restoration of doorways, gates and the enterance of these buildings. Text in German. Portfolios with light wear along edges and some scuffing on covers. Plates slightly age-toned, not affecting images. Portfolios in overall good+, interiors in near fine condition.

        Lease signed

      1909. Signed. GIMBEL BROTHERS.Lease signed (Greeley Square Realty Company to Gimbel Brothers, New York).New York, April 23, 1909.Rare original 21-year lease for the site of New York's famous Gimbels department store, dated 1909, signed by six of the Gimbel brothers as well as the original tenant (who had run a Milwaukee Gimbels for decades), fully notarized, with a wonderful 35" by 27-1/2" folding floor plan bound in showing the first three levels of construction, elevator placement, and plans for public transit and also with three legal letters relating to the floor plan.This exceptional 21-year lease is for the site on which the Gimbel brothers built their iconic New York department store, paying $605,000 for the first three years commencing on August 1, 1910, increasing to $655,000 by July 31, 1931. The signatories to the lease include brothers Jacob, Isaac, Charles, Daniel, Ellis, and Louis Gimbel. The document is also signed by the president of Greeley Square Realty Company and the tenant. The document has also been notarized in the appropriate locations. Of particular interest is the 35" by 27-1/2" floor plan dated April 16, 1909 attached to the conclusion of this document along with copies of three letters between the New York law firm of Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett and Gimbel Brothers relating to the floor plan. The plan itself shows the first floor, basement floor, and the sub basement. The mezzanine and the location of six passenger elevators are also noted. Red diagonal lines are shown with "space hatched red to be occupied by H. & M.R.R. Co." The Hudson & Manhattan Railroad Co. is known today as PATH (Port Authority Trans-Hudson). Construction began on the existing tunnels under the Hudson River in 1890, but stopped shortly thereafter when funding ceased. Construction resumed twice, the second time three months after this deed was signed.Bavarian Jewish immigrant Adam Gimbel arrived in the United States in 1835. He opened a general store in Vincennes, Indiana in 1842, then moved to Danville, Illinois in the 1880s. By 1887, he had moved to Milwaukee, which was being flooded with German immigrants and which provided a perfect location to open his first department store. It was a massive success. People in Milwaukee were known to remark that Gimbel had "a surplus of capital and a surplus of Gimbels." The Gimbels were a success, but they needed to expand. In 1894, a seven-story Gimbels opened in Philadelphia. On June 16, 1910, The New York Times headlined "Gimbel Store Completed," noting that "the contract was signed on April 23, 1909, and that the excavating work consumed five months, so that the work of construction proper did not actually begin until well in October of [the previous] year." The new Gimbels had two basement floors that essentially functioned as an outlet-type version of the upper floors, meant to attract low price seekers and small wage earners. It was a new innovation. The entirety of the store became a chief rival to the store across the street, Macy's. The rhetorical question "Does Macy's tell Gimbels?" became a popular phrase, meaning that competitors were not supposed to share trade secrets. While Gimbels closed in 1986, it lives on in Miracle on 34th Street, the 1947 Oscar-winning motion picture, in which Kris Kringle (Macy's new Santa) sends a customer to Gimbels when the store does not have what the customer wants. For many, though, Gimbels remains a beloved memory of New York (and, indeed, a number of other cities).Only light soiling and slight rubbing to edges of wrappers. An exceptional near-fine piece of New York history.

        Ricerche sui fenomeni ipnotici e spiritici con 57 figure intercalate nel testo e 2 tavole separate

      Unione Tipografico-Editrice Torinese, Torino 1909 - In 8o, pp. VIII + 319 con ill. n.t.Âe 2 tavv. f.t. di cui una su doppia pagina. Qualche fioritura sporadica alle cc. e aloni al marg. int. delle ultime 2 cc. Legatura in mz. tl. coeva. Ediz. orig. postuma di questa celebre opera di Lombroso che conserva all'interno una lettera manoscrittaÂdi grande fascino con firma autografa in calce del Lombroso il quale, come suo uso, faceva scrivere le sueÂlettere ad altri per poi limitarsi a firmarle. Nella lettera indirizzata ad un 'Egregio Signore', Lombroso dice di non essere a Torino e di non potergli pertanto inviare un articolo. Poi si raccommanda di 'tenere una seduta spiritica alle due medie per vedere se e' possibile quale e' lo spirito causa di questi fenomeni.'. Opera uscita poco dopo la morte, le Ricerche sui fenomeni ipnotici rappresenta il libro sui cui il medico e antropologo aveva concentrato le sue forze negli ultimi anni. Fonte principale sono gli esperimenti condotti nel corso di un decennio con la medium Eusapia Paladino iniziati in un albergo di NapoliÂnel 1891 e poi proseguiti a Milano, Genova e all'Institut General de Psychologie di Parigi. Lo stesso Lombroso rimase molto commosso e impressionato dalla visione della propria madre apparsagli durante una seduta spiritica a Genova nel 1902 e in seguito, meno distintamente, anche a Milano e a Torino. Da un atteggiamento iniziale di rifiuto nei confronti dei fenomeni medianici, lo scienziato, dopo avere assistito ad alcune sedute spiritiche della medium Paladino, arrivo' a formulare 'la ipotesi d'una forza psichica di cui, per ora, ignoriamo e la natura e le leggi'.

      London: [Printed at the Riccardi Press for] Philip Lee Warner, Publisher to the Medici Society, 1909. No. 61 OF 500 COPIES n. Hardcover. The First Riccardi Book. 260 x 194 mm (10 1/4 x 7 5/8"). 6 p.l., 16, [1] pp. No. 61 OF 500 COPIES. Pleasing olive-brown crushed morocco by Bumpus (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers framed with three sets of triple fillets, raised bands, spine compartments similarly framed, gilt titling and turn-ins, all edges gilt. Vignette on title page and colophon, both in blue, and 10 fine color plates by Russell Flint, mounted on stiff paper, each of the plates accompanied by a tissue guard and an additional captioned paper guard. Tomkinson, p. 148. Spine faded to a soft hazel brown (as usual with green), boards with just a hint of the same fading, very slight rubbing to a small portion of the joints, usual offsetting from turn-ins to endleaves, one tissue guard with one-inch strip torn at head edge, but still a very appealing copy, the attractive binding lustrous and with no significant wear, and the interior clean and fresh. Containing, in Houfe's words, "brilliant" figures that are "finely modeled" and that show "elements of a Burne-Jones influence by way of Byam Shaw," this is the first of a series of luxury editions produced by Sir William Russell Flint (1880-1969) for the Riccardi Press of the Medici Society between 1905-24. As Tomkinson relates, the Riccardi Press "was adopted in 1909 by the Medici Society at 7 Grafton Street, London; the books [were] printed at the Chiswick Press (under the supervision of Charles T. Jacobi until his retirement in 1922) and published by Philip Lee Warner, who was Publisher to the Medici Society until his death in 1925 . . . . The aim of the Press has been to produce finely printed books at reasonable prices and for sale through the ordinary channels of trade. . . . All editions are strictly limited, and the type is distributed after the edition has been printed." Although Riccardi Press books do not rank with Kelmscotts or Ashendenes, those with plates after Flint have considerable appeal, and as an inaugural publication, the present volume represents a significant achievement. Although simple in design, our binding reflects the typically well-executed and generally undervalued work produced with the Bumpus name for a substantial period, beginning in the latter part of the 19th century. Packer says that the Bumpus bindings emanated from the bookselling firm of John and Edward Bumpus, which was founded in 1780, and the Bumpus name still held an honored place among London binderies well into the 20th century.

        [Photo Album]: Boys Camp

      Massachusetts. 1909. Oblong octavo. Measuring 10" x 12". Black cloth photo album with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front cover. A collection of 127 sepia toned photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 6" x 8" with captions. An album compiled by Laurence C. Pond while away at a boys camp, Camp Wildwood, Maine in 1909. The photos include two panoramas of the tented encampment, as well as large 6" x 8" images of the campers and counselors, a stone fireplace from the main lodge, a group doing calisthenics, boys in their tent, and swimming. The journey to camp is documented in photos of the train yard and travel through Piscataquis Valley, Maine. Boys are seen participating in a variety of activities from exercise to sawing wood and balancing on logs, as you do. There are images of boys rowing, sleeping in tents, and posing with baseball bats. Maine's natural beauty is the setting for all of these photos showing off mountains, rivers, and lakes, including Spencer pond where they went trout fishing, seen here with a decent catch for the day. An extensive look at a boys camp shown through the amateur photography of a camper. .

      - Radierung, 1909, auf bräunlichem Kupferdruckpapier, in der Platte monogrammiert. 35,3:43 cm. Literatur: Beringer 84, II (von III). Sehr guter Abdruck mit schmalem Rand um die Plattenkante. Thoma begann nach Lehren als Lithograph und Anstreicher in Basel sowie als Uhrenschildmaler in Furtwangen, die er nicht beendete, autodidaktische Mal- und Zeichenstudien. 1859 studierte er an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie bei Ludwig Des Coudres (1820-1878) und Johann Wilhelm Schirmer (1807-1863). 1868 reiste er nach Aufenthalten in Basel und Düsseldorf mit Otto Scholderer (1834-1902) nach Paris. 1870-1877 lebte er in München, wo er mit dem Leibl-Kreis verkehrte. Sein erster Aufenthalt in Italien war 1874, ein zweiter 1880. 1876 zog er nach Frankfurt am Main. Nach sehr zögerlich einsetzendem Erfolg – seinen ersten größeren Auftrag hatte er 1882, 1890 seine erste erfolgreiche Sonderausstellung in München – führte seine steigende Bekanntheit 1898 zur Professur an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie und 1899 zum Direktorat der dortigen Kunsthalle.

        Elemente der exakten Erblichkeitslehre mit Grundzügen der biologischen Variationsstatistik

      Jena: G. Fischer, 1909. Introduction of the Term ???Gene??? Johannsen, Wilhelm L. (1857-1927). Elemente der exakten Erblichkeitslehre mit Grundzügen der biologischen Variationsstatistik. 8vo. vi, 515, [1, errata]pp. Text diagrams. Jena: G. Fischer, 1909. 230 x 156 mm. Half morocco, marbled boards ca. 1909, some wear at spine and edges, paper label pasted to front cover. Endpapers a bit spotted, but very good. Library bookplate and stamp (on title) of the K. K. Deutsche techn. Hochschule in Brünn. First Edition of the work that introduced the term â??geneâ? to describe the unit of heredity. Johannsenâ??s work was â??the first and most influential textbook of genetics on the European continent. About half the book was devoted to the mathematical and statistical methods needed in the analysis of the quantitative data arising from experiments in genetics. . . . Johannsen defined the basic concepts of a new scienceâ??â??gene,â?? â??genotype,â?? â??phenotypeâ??â??and forecast the effects to be expected from it upon the central problem of biology, that of the mechanism of organic evolution . . . Many European biologists owed to [the Elemente] their introduction to geneticsâ? (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Johannsen was also responsible for coining the terms â??genotype,â? referring to the heritable genetic makeup of a cell or organism, and â??phenotype,â? referring to the composite of an organismâ??s observable characteristics or traits (which can be affected both by genes and the environment).

The second collection of Uranian verse by the American connosieur, which includes eighty-six poems exalting same-sex love, particularly of the pedarastic variety.

        A magnificent recently discovered piece of New York history! The original 21 year lease signed by six Gimbel brothers by which they leased the land upon which they quickly built their landmark New York store which opened in 1910

      New York, New York, April 23, 1909. 8" x 10.5". "Historically Important Printed Document Initialed and Signed ?Jacob Gimbel,? ?Isaac Gimbel,? ?Charles Gimbel,? ?Daniel Gimbel,? ?Ellis A. Gimbel,? ?Louis S. Gimbel,? and ?Nathan Hamburger? as Tenant (on page 31), 31p, 8? x 10.5?. April 23, 1909. Vintage notation on cover page ?Original ?" fully executed.? Fine condition.The original 21 year lease by which Gimbel Brothers, New York leased the land upon which they built their landmark New York store paying $605,000 for the first three years commencing on August 1, 1910, increasing annually to $615,000 and $620,000, and then to $630,000 for 1916-1920 and $655,000 for the last 11 years ending on July 31, 1931.Also signed ?John Q. Lockman? as President of Greeley Square Realty Company, the Landlord, and ?Jacob Gimbel? as President and, as witness, ?Daniel Gimbel? as Secretary of Gimbel Brothers, New York, the Tenant (on page 27). Corporate Seals of both Gimbel Brothers and Greeley Square are affixed to this page. Lockman?s signature is notarized in Manhattan (page 28) and Jacob Gimbel?s signature was notarized in Philadelphia where he resided (page 29). At that time, the only Gimbel store was in Philadelphia.Attached at the conclusion of this deed is the 35? x 27.5? floor plan dated April 16, 1909. Copies of three letters between the New York law firm of Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett and Gimbel Brothers relating to this floor plan are attached to it. The plan shows the First Floor, the Basement Floor, and the Sub Basement, noting ?9th Story Floor to be 327.47? elevation.? The Mezzanine and the location of six Passenger Elevators are also noted.Article I of this deed provides that ?There is also hereby reserved by and to Landlord, and Landlord shall have, the right to grant to or vest in Hudson & Manhattan Railroad Company, its successors and assigns, or any of them, all or any of the following rights, which rights shall be superior to the rights of Tenant hereunder, that is to say: The right to the exclusive use and occupation of the spaces hereinafter specified, for the purpose of handling and storing baggage, mail and express matter, and for ticket offices and any other necessary purposes of and adjuncts to ... the underground railroad station to be located at Broadway and Thirty-third Street...?There are sections of the Sub Basement, the Basement Floor, the First Floor, and the 9th Floor marked with red diagonal lines noted ?space hatched red to be occupied by H. & M.R.R. Co.? The Hudson & Manhattan Railroad Co. is known today as PATH (Port Authority Trans-Hudson). Construction began on the existing tunnels under the Hudson River in 1890, but stopped shortly thereafter when funding ran out. Construction of the Hudson Tubes resumed in 1900 and on July 19, 1909, three months after this deed was signed, service began between the Hudson Terminal in Lower Manhattan and Jersey City, New Jersey.Bavarian Jewish immigrant Adam Gimbel (1817-1896) arrived in the United States in 1835. He opened a general store in Vincennes, Indiana, in 1842, moved to Danville, Illinois, in the 1880s, and, in 1887, relocated to the fast growing town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which had a sizable population of German immigrants. His store quickly became the leading department store in Milwaukee. The saying in town was that Gimbel had ""a surplus of capital and a surplus of Gimbels."" With one successful store and planning for the future of his eight sons, Gimbel saw that a second store was needed. In 1894, sons Daniel, Jacob, and Ellis opened a seven-story department store in Philadelphia.On June 16, 1910, ?The New York Timers? headlined ?Gimbel Store Completed,? noting that ?the contract was signed on April 23, 1909, and the excavating work consumed five months, so that the work of construction proper did not actually begin until well in October of last year...? The store opened on September 29, 1910, just 13 days after the death of 55-year-old Nathan Hamburger, a signer of this lease. Nathan had become an apprentice to Adam Gimbel in Vincennes in 1869 and was in charge of the Milwaukee store.Gimbels? new store had two basement floors which was actually a department store in itself with the same kinds of goods as in the upper floors but of a lesser quality and lower price that would attract the small wage earner. The ?Times? called it a ?chief innovation in the new store.?Gimbels soon became the primary rival to the department store across the street, Macy?s. The rhetorical question ""Does Macy's tell Gimbels?"" became a popular phrase which meant that competitors are not supposed to share secrets with one another. While Gimbels closed in 1986, it lives on at least once a year, around Christmas, when ?Miracle on 34th Street? is televised. In the 1947 Oscar winning motion picture, Macy?s Santa sent customers to Gimbels when the store did not have what the customer wanted, initially resulting in his firing. The ?Miracle? refers to what happened next."

He was the last of the "Five Good Emperors," and is also considered one of the most important Stoic philosophers. His classic Stoic tome Meditations [Thoughts], written in Greek while on campaign between 170 and 180, is still revered as a literary monument to a philosophy of service and duty, describing how to find and preserve equanimity in the midst of conflict by following nature as a source of guidance and inspiration.Sir Russell Flint, the master water color artist, was born in 1880 in Edinburgh as the first son of Wighton Flint, a watercolorist and designer by profession. His first formal education in art was received at the age of 14 from the Royal Institute School of Art which he attended while working as an apprentice for a firm of printers.Having finished his six year apprenticeship as a draftsman he moved to London where he was employed as a medical illustrator. In 1903 he started working for the Illustrated London News as an illustrator, soon achieving success and fame.His earliest work includes illustrations done for the Illustrated London News from 1903 to 1907 and his first book illustrations: King Solomon?'s Mines in 1905, followed by Imitation of Christ in 1908, two volumes of Savoy Operas (Gilbert and Sullivan) and The Thoughts of Marcus Aurelius. Later prominent works include The Scholar Gipsy (1912) and The Heroes, and The Canturbury Tales of Geoffrey Chaucer (1913). Ransom, p. 395.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Pörtschach am Wörthersee, 28. VII. 1909.. 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo.. An den Schriftsteller Richard Specht mit dem Ausdruck seiner Empörung über Richard Batkas im "Prager Tagblatt" veröffentlichten Aufsatz "Brahmsiana": "[...] Wußte er nichts von Ihrem Brief, oder sollte seine mich zum Hunde machende, von Unrichtigkeiten und Ungerechtigkeiten wimmelnde Auseinandersetzung einen Annäherungsversuch bedeuten? Ich weiß nicht, von wem Herr Dr. B. seine Informationen hat - rein ist diese Quelle gewiß nicht. Schon früher verdächtigte er mich einmal im 'Kunstwart' als Erpresser, der Hofoper gegenüber; Mahler habe einem moralischen Zwange nachgeben und meine Don Juan-Übersetzung aufführen müssen [...]". - Seit 1880 in Wien lebend, schrieb Kalbeck für die "Wiener Allgemeine Zeitung", später auch für die "Neue Freie Presse" und die "Wiener Montags-Revue". In seinen Rezensionen vertrat er die Geisteshaltung des bürgerlichen Liberalismus und nahm vehement gegen die Vertreter der "Neudeutschen Schule" Stellung, besonders gegen Richard Wagner, Anton Bruckner und Hugo Wolf; mit Johann Strauß Sohn und Johannes Brahms hingegen war Kalbeck freundschaftlich verbunden. Sein bekanntestes Werk ist die große vierbändige Biographie über Johannes Brahms (1904ff.).
