        IL VIANDANTE, diretto da Tomaso Monicelli, con illustrazioni di ANTONIO RUBINO (Dal num. 1 del 6 giugno 1909 sl n. 11 del 13 marzo 1910), Milano, Agnelli Pietro tipografia, 1909

      Questa scheda è stata impostata quando la libreria ha avurto la collezione completa (cessata con il n. 22 del 1910) Ci è sembrato il caso di ripeterla per questo blocco di giornali, anche per sottollineare l'opera ed il valore culturale di MONICELLI Il titolo del giornale è significativo per delineare il suo disegno politico e culturale ed è strettamente legato al suo direttore ed animatore TOMASO MONICELLI (Ostiglia MN 1883 - Roma 1946) battagliero giornalista, socialista rivoluzionario e poi nazionalista, sindacalista, direttore di altri giornali (L'idea Nazionale, Tempo, Il Resto del Carlino, la prima rivista di cinema italiana IN PENOMBRA), drammaturgo, scrittore, traduttore, direttore dell'Istituto per i drammi di D'Annunzio, ecc. I "filoni" sono ben rappresentati dagli articoli ed inchieste sociali dei collaboratori STORICO - POLITICI: (Allevi G., Bartolotta Stefano - prezioso vice direttore, Boccardi R., Onorevole Bonomi Ivanoe - conterraneo, Bottazzi L., Cenzato G., Colaianni N., De Pietri - Tonelli, Ferrari S., Giolli F., Graziadei A., LABRIOLA ARTURO con numerosi interventi, Longobardi E.C., Loria A., Marangoni C., Momigliano F., OLIVETTI A.O.al tempo direttore di "Pagine Libere", ORANO PAOLO, con numerosi interventi, Piva Gino, Podrecca Guido, On. Preopinante, Quadrotta G., Rensi G., Stavelli G., Talamini Alfredo, VALERA PAOLO qui con vari interventi, ma sarebbe poi divenuto acceso rivale di Monicelli, Varazzani S., Zibordi L., ed altri. LETTERARI - ARTISTICI : (Alessi Rino, Altobelli Demos, Anile A., Arcari P., Baldani R., Beltramelli A., BERNASCONI UGO, Boutet E., CAPPA INNOCENZO, Cavacchioli E., Cenzato G., CIARLANTINI FRANCO, Civinini G., Coccia G., D'Ambra L., Della Sbarba S., Fabietti E., Franchi Anna, Giolli R., GIORGERI CONTRI COSIMO, GOTTA S., GOVONI CORRADO - racconto a puntate "Le Lucciole", Gray E.C., LUCINI G.P. con numerosi interventi, Manetti D., Martini F.M., Martoglio G., Motta Luigi - saggio sui Cascella, Nebbia Ugo, Nosari A., Ottolenghi R., Pirro R., Ragghianti A., Rivalta E., ROCCATAGLIATA CECCARDI C., Salucci A., Scarpelli F., SICILIANI LUIGI - con traduzioni di importanti poeti stranieri, Spellanzon C., TERESAH con tre poesie, VANNICOLA G., Vittori E., Zavataro R, ed altri . Di grande rilevanza la pubblicazione delle tre poesie di GUIDO GOZZANO "L'onesto rifiuto", "L'esperimento", "L'Ipotesi" che puo' essere considerata il preludio a "La signorina Felicita" che uscirà nel 1911 nei "Colloqui". I testi sono arricchiti da fotografie, fregi. disegni e caricature (FABIANO, Golia, Golfarelli, Castellucci, Cascella T. e M., Galantara, Rictus, Paoletti, ecc. La testata del giornale è opera di PIETRO CHIESA, fino al n. 29 del dicembre 1909, poi viene disegnata da ANTONIO RUBINO che è sorprendentemente qui presente (notizie assenti nelle bibliografie ufficiali) con suoi disegni, testatine, figurine, in tanti numeri del giornale. Sono circa 30 immagini alcune ripetute, ma tutte di grande efficacia. Qui nasce la storica ed amichevole collaborazione tra RUBINO E MONICELLI, che sarebbe poi felicemente proseguita nel 1912 - 1913 con la mitica "Bibliotechina della Lampada" della Casa editrice LA SCOLASTICA ad Ostiglia di MN (Suo il famoso "logo"), dove oltre a Rubino, ritroviamo GOZZANO, BELTRAMELLI, OJETTI, OLGA VISENTINI, LUIGI CAPUANA lo stesso T. MONICELLI (che fu il primo autore della collana), AMALIA GUGLIELMINETTI, YAMBO e tanti altri., E' con la nascita della casa editrice che prende sostanza la grande amicizia tra MONICELLI e ARNOLDO MONDADORI (entrambi mantovani) che si consolida poi con il matrimonio tra Andreina Monicelli (amata sorella di Tomaso) ed il fondatore della grande casa editrice Mondadori, che negli anni successivi si sarebbe sviluppata a VERONA e poi a MILANO. Probabilmente l'esperienza della rivista "Il Viandante" ebbe funzioni di laboratorio per relazioni con scrittori e uomini di cultura, ma anche per le future fortune editoriali, intrecciate con commesse governative per la scuola (da qui la ragione sociale iniziale). Certamente la passione per l'arte, il teatro, lo spettacolo ed il cinema (T. Monicelli è stato autore anche di numerose commedie e libri teatrali, tra cui "Il Viandante - commedia in tre atti") è stata felicemente assimilata dal figlio (il famoso regista MARIO MONICELLI, il padre della commedia all'italiana, nato a Mantova nel 1915 ed autore di indimenticabili opere come "La Grande Guerra"). Nella nostra sequenza mancano 8 giornali del 1909 (n.2,9,10,13,20,24,29,30,) offriamo il blocco che è alloggiato in elegante scatola rigida creata appositamente a

        Champion of the World Jack Johnson.

      [Chicago:] Brandt & Scheible, 1909 - Offset-lithographic poster (470 × 390 mm), en grisaille. Mounted, framed and glazed. Lightly browned verso, a few superficial creases, a small chip from the top margin, image unaffected, else very good. Central image of Johnson in boxing pose with stars and stripes sash around his waist, superimposed over a large laurel wreath, either side are oval vignettes, one of the log cabin the "Birthplace of Johnson", the other of "Johnson in his Car", the champion had a succession of flashy and fast cars. A remarkably well-preserved example of this uncommon poster celebrating the ascension to the world heavyweight throne of the great African-American boxer. Having spent several years trying to lure heavyweight champion James J. Jeffries, who refused to allow a black fighter to challenge for his title, into a match, Johnson finally won the title from Canadian Tommy Burns in Rushcutter's Bay, Australia, following a one-sided contest during which Johnson constantly taunted the champion; "Poor little Tommy, don't you know how to fight Tommy? They said you was the champion Tommy?". Visiting Canada the following year he was somewhat more gracious; "Let me say of Mr. Burns, a Canadian and one of yourselves, that he has done what no one else ever did, he gave a black man a chance for the championship. He was beaten, but he was game". Johnson's victory made him "the most hated man in America because he was black, a winner, and he flaunted it all On the eve of the fight, writing for the New York Herald, Jack London told the world, "Burns is a white man and so am I, naturally I want the white man to win". But Johnson won, and continued to win, successfully defending his title for seven years. And each time white America hated him more". (Hauser, The Black Lights: Inside the World of Professional Boxing, p.64). Evidently cheaply produced for display in those bars and club-rooms where the Galveston Giant was venerated rather than despised, it is extremely uncommon to find this piece in such pristine condition.

        The Lowrie History as Acted in part by Henry Berry Lowrie, the Great North Carolina bandit, with biographical sketch of his associates. Being a Complete History of the Modern Robber Band in the County of Robeson, and State of North Carolina

      Lumberton, N.C.: Lumbee Publishing Company / (Freeman Printing Company). (1909). Fourth edition of the Norment account; and first edition with the updated history of Robeson County with particular emphasis on the Tuscarora and Lumbee Indians by Olds. Octavo. 192pp., illustrated from photographs. Illustrated printed brown wrappers. Slight loss at the spine ends, but a handsome and nice, else near fine copy. Henry Berry Lowrie, of mixed Native American, Portuguese, and (probably) African-American blood, was made an outlaw (in part to escape conscription in the Confederate forces in the Civil War, and for possessing firearms, which mixed race people were forbidden to own since the Nat Turner Rebellion) and led a gang of similarly stigmatized blacks and Native Americans in North Carolina, and was considered something of a Robin Hood figure. After the War, Lowrie and his gang (while by no means angels, engaging in robbery and murder of establishment figures) fought against the reinforcement of white supremacy by reconstruction officials and gained the sympathy and protection of the non-white population. While most of the gang was eventually killed or captured, Henry Berry Lowrie's fate, in true legendary fashion, was disputed: some saying he died cleaning his shotgun, others that he escaped and was occasionally seen in the area. This initial account by Mary Norment, whose husband was killed by the Lowries, while unsurprisingly unsympathetic, is nevertheless compelling. Usually found rebound, and very scarce in wrappers. .

      1909. Very Good. [DESIGN] Kamisaka SEKKA, artist. MOMOYOGUSA. Kyoto, Unsodo, Meiji 42-43 [1909-10]. 30.1 X 22.5 cm. 3 volumes. Most consider it the finest Japanese design book of all time, this exquisite suite of 60 double page color printed woodblocks is printed and overprinted using opaque and metallic inks to produce a sumptuous surface. This is from an early printing, before cracks had widened in the printing blocks. The condition is very good, with only a bit of the gutter fading and metallic ink transfer common to this work. Definitely one of the cleaner copies internally that we have seen. The exteriors have been restored and show the signs of old chipping away of the overlay paper but the original title labels are still present. The paper overlays are very fragile and so they almost always have at least some problems of condition. In a contemporary supplied clasped chitsu box. A beautiful copy of this cornerstone of 20th century design. Complete.

        THE HEART OF THE ANTARCTIC

      William Heinemann, 1909. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. 1st Edition, Trade issue, 2 Volumes; Vol I, xlviii, 372pp, 112 plate leaves, plus 111 diagrams in text; Vol II, xvi, 419pp, 102 plate leaves, plus 38 diagrams in text; 1 folding page depicting 2 panoramas, 3 folding maps in rear pocket. Original blue cloth lettered in silver, silver pictorial vignettes to upper covers and spines. Shackleton first gained fame as a member of Scott?'s 1901-2 expedition, and in August 1907 he left London as commander of his own expedition, popularly known as the "Nimrod" Expedition and renowned "for having reached within 97 miles of the South Pole (almost four years before Amundsen and Scott achieved the Pole itself) This expedition established Shackleton as a bona-fide English hero," having discovered the Polar Plateau and accomplishing the first attainment of the Magnetic South Pole, as well as the first ascent of Mount Erebus—fully outdistancing his predecessors to a degree unequalled in the history of polar exploration. ( Books on Ice 7.4) On Shackleton?'s return to England, he was knighted by Edward VII, who considered the expedition "the greatest geographical event of his reign" (Huntford, 298). Shackleton would later recall the expedition as "high adventure, strenuous days, lonely nights, unique experiences, and above all, records of unflinching determination, supreme loyalty, and the generous self-sacrifice on the part of my men" ( South ). Rosove.1st (William Heinemann) edition, 2-volume trade issue. 305.B1. London: William Heinemann, [4 November] 1909. Printed by Ballantyne & Co., London. 2 vols. 25.3 cm, dark blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, front boards with silver lettering on spines and embossed, silver portrait of the Farthest South, top edges gilt, others uncut. Collation similar to Deluxe edition for vols. I and II, with an errata slip for vol. II facing page1. The trade edition differs in the lack of The Antarctic Book, the binding, omission of ribbon bookmarks, shorter paper, use of a somewhat lesser but still excellent paper grade, the name of the publisher in black rather than brown ink, a different imprint, a different verso of the title leaves (?"All rights reserved?" in the deluxe edition; ?"Copyright 1909, London, William Heinemann, and Washington, U.S.A., by J. B. Lippincott Company.?" in the trade edition), the frontispieces and color plates having been printed on white glossy paper rather than mounted on thick, brown paper, and the presence of an errata slip in vol. II that contains 6 corrections (of which the last 3 have been made already in both this and the deluxe edition). Both editions were produced from the same typeset. Ink gift inscription "Alice Hurt from B.H.G.A. Xmas 1909" on fep volume I, Alice Hurt in same hand on volume II. Spine faded, Covers stained, tears and splitting on both volumes, bumped.Contents clean. Very Good. PLEASE NOTE: This book will incur extra postage and insurance charges.

        Christbaum mit Christkind und Weihnachtsengel" originale Pastellkreide und Gouache auf Papier ca. 66x47cm; links unten signiert; um 1950

      - Otto Herbig studiert 1909-11 an der Münchner Akademie bei Angelo Jank. 1911 erhält er Unterricht bei Lovis Corinth in Berlin und bei Albin Egger-Lienz in Weimar. Im Anschluß an eine Reise nach Paris 1913 läßt sich Herbig in Berlin nieder. Während des Ersten Weltkriegs dient er in einem Sanitätstrupp gemeinsam mit Erich Heckel, Anton Kerschbaumer und Max Kaus. 1919 zieht der Künstler in Heckels Atelier in Berlin-Steglitz. Im selben Jahr heiratet Otto Herbig. Seine Arbeiten der folgenden Jahre beschäftigen sich überwiegend mit dem Thema "Mutter und Kind". Bereits während seines Studiums an der Münchner Akademie unternimmt Herbig eine erste Reise nach Italien. Nach dem Tod seiner Frau 1926 begibt er sich erneut nach Italien, weitere Reisen folgen in den 30er und 50er Jahren. 1929 wird er gleichzeitig mit Kerschbaumer und Schmidt-Rottluff Stipendiat in der Villa Massimo in Rom. In den kommenden Jahren erhält Herbig Gelegenheit, seine Werke in Ausstellungen in den Berliner Galerien Möller, Nierendorf und van der Heyde einer breiten Öffentlichkeit zu präsentieren. Nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs unterrichtet Herbig bis 1955 als Professor an der Bau- und Kunsthochschule Weimar. Danach läßt er sich in Kleinmachnow bei Berlin nieder. Seine Bilder zeichnen sich nun durch eine größere Nähe zur Natur aus, behalten jedoch durch ihre Abstraktion eine enge Verbindung zum Expressionismus der "Brücke"-Künstler bei. 1962 wird Herbig mit einer ersten großen Retrospektive in der Nationalgalerie in Ost-Berlin geehrt. Ein Jahrzehnt nach seiner Übersiedlung nach Weilheim stirbt der Künstler am 13. Juni 1971.

        Der Blitz. Eine radikale Zeitung

      Der Blitz. Eine radikale Zeitung. Wien (1908-1909) - Der Blitz. Eine radikale Zeitung. Wien (1908-1909). One of a number of weekly radical newspapers that flourished in early 20th century Vienna (1908-1924), Der Blitz addressed many social and political issues of the day and paid particular attention to sexual scandals in Austria and Hungary. There were numerous articles on prostitution, homosexuality, lesbianism and related subjects in the weekly tabloid that undoubtedly catered to the bohemianism of the times. Vienna was a hotbed of social activism and there were many newspapers catering to every interest. Included are the following 18 issues (generally 16pp. each): Jahrgang 1: #5, 7, 12, 14, 15, Jahrgang 2: 16, 19 (2 copies), 20, 22, 25, 30, 32, 35, 37, 42, 55, 56. Fair condition, paper browned, edgeworn, some pages are loose, some are torn or chipped. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Heart of the Antarctic Being the Story of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907-1909 With an Introduction by Hugh Robert Mill An Account of the First Journey to the South Magnetic Pole by Professor T W Edgeworth David

      London: William Heinemann, 1909., 1909. First Edition. 2 volumes; 4to. Elegantly bound in dark blue half morocco with raised bands, gilt titles and decoration to spines; blue cloth boards; top edges gilt, others untrimmed, coated black endpapers. Publisher's original decorated uppers bound in at rear of each volume. Portrait of E.H. Shackleton as frontispiece to vol.I, the Northern Party at the South Magnetic Pole to vol.II, both protected with captioned tissue guards. Generously illustrated with photographic plates and diagrams as well as several plates in colour. Minor and occasional spotting else fine in an attctive recent leather binding. Packed with a mass of maps, photographs and sketches chronicling everything from penguins to climbing Erebus this work embodies the golden age of polar exploration. Although the expedition team was unable to attain its goal of reaching the South Pole, Shackleton and his companions reached 88° 23' S, a point only 180 kilometres (112 mi) from the Pole. Accomplishments also included the first ascent of Mount Erebus, the location of the Magnetic South Pole by Douglas Mawson, Edgeworth David and MacKay (January 16, 1909), and the discovery of the Beardmore Glacier passage (named after Shackleton's patron). The group was the first to cross the Trans-Antarctic mountain range and to set foot on the South Polar Plateau. When the party, subsisting on half-rations, returned to base camp on February 28, 1909, Shackleton found a letter stating that Nimrod would sail on February 26. In response, the crew burnt the camp to attract the departing ship's attention. The ploy succeeded, and on March 1, 1909, Shackleton departed for home and returned to the United Kingdom a hero. He was knighted for reaching the furthest south of any human at that time. Regarding the failure to reach the South Pole, Shackleton remarked to his wife: "Better a live donkey than a dead lion.". It would be three more years before Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen became the first to reach the South Pole, followed shortly by Robert Scott's ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition.

        WATER BABIES

      - (GOBLE,WARWICK)illus. WATER BABIES by Charles Kingsley. London: Macmillan 1909. Featured here is the LIMITED EDITION OF THE BOOK IN A FULL MOROCCO BINDING HOUSED IN A LARGE PICTORIAL CLAMSHELL BOX WITH AN ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR USED IN THE BOOK. The book is a thick quarto measuring 9" x 11 1/4", bound in a full blue morocco binding by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. The book spine is decorated in gilt with raised bands and the covers are heavily decorated with triple gilt rules and floral decorated corners. Inside the covers there are gilt dentelles and silk doublures (silk lining). The book is the magnificent DELUXE EDITION, LIMITED TO ONLY 260 COPIES printed on hand-made paper and illustrated by Goble with 32 mounted color plates with lettered tissue guards. The book is housed in a velvet lined cradle. On the opposite side of the box is a special insert holding the original watercolor signed by Goble that appears as a full page color plate on page 32 of the book. The actual image measures 13 1/2" wide x 9 1/4" high and is captioned "Play by me, bathe in me mother and child". It is a beach scene with the mother and the water baby reclining on the sand, with the ocean, rocks and beach related flora surrounding them. This image is duplicated in gilt on the cover of the book and also on the cover of the box. The box is 13 1/2" wide x 17 3/4" high with the backstrip rounded to simulate the spine of a book with extensive gilt decorations and raised bands. Goble's Water Babies is arguably the best edition of this classic story. In his book "Early Children's Books" (p.80), Eric Quayle comments on all the various editions of Water Babies and adds about Goble's edition: "None of these in either artistic or financial terms approaches the sumptuous edition of 1909." Nice copies of the limited edition are rare, an offering like this is a once in a lifetime copy. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Les Regles de Route en Mer

      Vve Ferdinand Larcier, Editeur, 26-28 Rue des Minimes, Bruxelles, 1909.. Erstausgabe? 549 Seiten mit zahlreichen Figuren, z.B. Schifstypen, Abb. von Segelschiffen, Schiffsquerschnitten, faltbares Klappbild des Turbinenschiffs Princesse Elisabeth, Querschnitt eines Kriegsschiffes,Falttafel von Navigationsmanövern, farbige Abbildung von Schiffslaternen (3 Seiten),farbige Abbildungen von Schiffssignalen (8Seiten), diverse Abbildungen zum Fischfang mit Netzen, Abb. von Signalhörnern (2Seiten), 9 Abb. von Seglern (Handels- und Kriegssegler,sowie diversen Diagrammen. Halbleder. Marmorierter Halbledereinband mit Lederecken. Der Pappeinband in grün marmoriert. Unten auf dem Lederrücken befindet sich ein kleines Papierschildchen, vermutlich aus der Bibliothek des Seeamtes Hamburg. Das Buch ist fadengeheftet und wurde in Hamburg von der Buchbinderei Hugo W. und Sohn fachgerecht eingebunden. Der Einband ist am oberen Kapital vorne etwas verblichen und im Bereich der Gelenke und an den Kanten geringfügig berieben. Stempel des Seeamtes Hamburg auf dem Titel und auch auf dem Vortitel. In einem recht guten Zustand. Dieses Buch dürfte keine sehr große Auflage gehabt haben und taucht weltweit zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt nirgendwo im Onlinehandel auf. Ich konnte nur eine Ausgabe in der Staatsbibliothek in Hamburg recherchieren. Auch konnte ein Verkauf in den großen Auktionshäusern im deutschsprachigen Raum nicht festgestellt werden. Somit offensichtlich absolut selten und sammelwürdig! HP1/39

        contributes to...'Twenty Five Cricket Stories'. i) Tom, Dick and Harry, ii) The Wire-Pullers, iii) The Lost Bowlers and iv) How Pillingshoot Scored

      George Newnes Ltd., London, n.d. [1909], 1909. FIRST (AND ONLY) EDITION, possibly withdrawn. 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 EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE omnibus and the present copy offered is the publisher's own file copy. We are unable to find a note of any copy 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, but again this has proved virtually impossible to locate. The sheer paucity of copies suggests that both these sporting volumes were offered for sale, but were either printed in tiny numbers, possibly withdrawn, or perhaps never issued. The fact that this copy is the publisher's own copy (and sold as part of the Newnes/Warne archive many years later) may support this as being one of an exceedingly small surviving number. Whatever the actual story, this remains an exceptionally rare book. 208pp. Small octavo. Bound in publisher's illustrated card covers stamped by publisher as the 'File' copy, later linen back, housed in collector's folding box. Some rubbing and wear to joints else fine.
