        Korrespondenz des Verlegers mit dem Bruder von Peter Altenberg. Wien Berlin 1919-1920. 9 Stücke, 13 S., meist 4°.

      0 - Von Quellenwert über 'Bilderbögen des kleinen Lebens' (1909), dem einzigen Titel Altenbergs, der nicht bei S. Fischer erschienen war und eine heftige Auseinandersetzung zwischen Reiss und Altenbergs Bruder und Nachlassverwalter hervorgerufen hat. Einer der ersten Titel des jungen Reiss, einen Monat nach Verlagsgründung 1908, erlebte im Erscheinungsjahr 1909 drei Auflagen. Nach Altenbergs Tod zehn Jahre später, übernimmt sein Bruder die Nachlassverwaltung (dessen Konkurs 1904 hatte den Dichter in Einkommensschwierigkeiten versetzt) und reklamiert die seither ausgebliebenen Abrechnungen. Die Bilderbögen waren für Reiss bewilligt worden, weil in der dort gleichfalls erscheinenden 'Schaubühne' P.A. eine Veröffentlichungsmöglichkeit fand und für das Buch 30% Autorenhonorar zugebilligt erhalten hatte. Der zweiseitige Verlagsvertrag vom 19.12.1908 ist in einer Typoskript Abschrift hier vorhanden, das Original verschollen. Engländer (Typoskript Durchschläge) 24.4.1919: ". welche Auflage die letzte ist, die Sie als beinahe vergriffen bezeichnen u.zw. die wievielte und aus welchem Jahr stammend." - 10.5.1919: "Ich bin daher nicht gesonnen, vom Honorar das geringste nachzulassen". - 11.6.1919: "Ihre Bemerkungen . hätten Ihrerseits einen sehr niedergehaltenen Vorschlag für die Ablösung des Buches erwarten lassen, aber nicht nach Ihren Grobheiten noch ein Anbot meinerseits." - Erich Reiss, 20.5.1920, Brief m.e.U. Briefkopf: "Bei uns aber besteht nach wie vor der Wunsch, mit Ihnen nichts weiter zu tun zu haben ." - Engländer, 2.6.1920, eigenh. Brief m.U. 3 S. Briefkopf: "Ihrem Br. v. 20.d.M. zufolge gebe ich Ihnen zur Neuauflage von Peter Altenberg, 'Bilderbögen des kleinen Lebens' eine Nachfrist bis 30. November 1920 . Sie aber protestieren! Sie wünschen ein Anbot dafür; ich aber mache keines mehr .". - Reiss, 16.10.1920, Brief m.e.U. 1 S. Briefkopf: ". in Verbindung mit der 30%igen Honorarbelastung unmöglich, eine Kalkulationsbasis zu finden, so dass wir zu unserem Bedauern von einer Neu-Herausgabe des Buches Abstand nehmen müssen". Das Konvolut befindet sich in einem von Georg und Peter Altenbergs Schwester Marie Mauthner blau beschrifteten Bogen "P.A." Verlag "Reiss". Reiss heiratete 1940 im New Yorker Exil die Fotografin Lotte Jacobi. Sprache: deu [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        THE LUNARIAN PROFESSOR AND HIS REMARKABLE REVELATIONS CONCERNING THE EARTH, THE MOON AND MARS TOGETHER WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE CRUISE OF THE SALLY ANN

      Minneapolis, Minn.,. 1909. original red cloth, front and rear panels ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold.. Erratum slip affixed to front paste-down. A nearly fine copy.. (#147941). First edition. On a camping trip in rural Minnesota, the narrator encounters a curious creature, partly humanoid but with wings on his back; smaller wings in the front of his body that function apparently as clothing as well as sensory organs; an extra pair of limbs around his mid- section; a huge head with huge eyes and a vertical mouth. It immediately began to communicate with the camper, seeming to understand the camper's spoken words but addressing him telepathically. He is amiable and professorial in demeanor and proceeds to explain society on the Moon, as well as on Mars, which has been colonized by the Lunarians. The import of the book is clearly utopian, with detailed accounts (including measurements in some cases) about various aspects (economic, agricultural, sociological, biological, technological) of the society. The Lunarians' guiding principles are largely progressive (socialist, feminist, etc.). Balancing the didactic nature of the novel is the abundance of vivid and exotic details about life forms on the two planets (for example, the Lunarians have a third gender, and the dominant species on Mars resembles a starfish). The Lunarian professor has also traveled backward in time from the twenty- first century to reach the camper. "A curious book, very interesting for its imagination and unusual ideas. Along with Dail's WILMOTH THE WANDERER and Dieudonne's RONDAH, it falls into the category of fascinating eccentric books." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 31.

        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).

        The Alpine Ski Club Annual. A Record of Winter Mountaineering by Members of the... No. 2

      London: Horace Marshall & Son, 1909.. 8vo. (ii), 86, (12) pp. Original printed wrappers, spine sometime sympathetically repaired preserving much of the original and restored in places with a matching paper. 12 plates, each mostly featuring 2 illustrations. Very good. The annual was published between 1908 and 1913, after which time it merged with the Yearbook of the Ski Club of Great Britain, with which it shared some of its contributors. This issue includes articles by W.R Rickmers ("At Random - Two Avalanches"), Arnold Lunn ("The Oberland from End to End") and Henry Hoek ("A Fortnight in the Dolomites"). Towards the end of the volume an account of the club's inaugural annual dinner is provided, presided over by Sir Martin Conway and with the guest of honour Sir Ernest Shackleton, whose speech is recounted over the best part of three pages. Scarce. A few sets of all six volumes are located in institutional libraries, one in the UK and three in the US, plus one issue of this volume on its own in this country.

        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

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'.

        THE SONG OF SONGS, WHICH IS SOLOMON'S

      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. .

        Oberitalienische Landschaft.

      - 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. 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).
