He has given us sand and sea, fish and fairies which captivate us at once; for delicacy of colouring and grace of line he has bettered his best, and the volume is a continuous pleasure."

        Ball der Stadt Wien 1909 (cover title). Gedentage aus dem Jahre 1809. Eine Erinnerung den Damen Wiens gewidmet vom Ballkomitee der Stadt Wien.,

      Vienna, 1909. - 7 1/4 x 6 1/4. 14 leaves of heavy stock, with tissue guards: dedication to the Ladies, tribute to Haydn, and 12 color lithographs, hinged into binding. Bound by Wilhelm Melzer in white kidskin, upper cover richly stamped in gold, black & red; elaborate endpapers; all edges gilt. The original cardboard box covered in a Jugendstil design paper still has the (usually missing) ribbon handles; these are soiled & fraying. Corners of the box are worn & missing tiny bits of paper. The book is fine. Elaborate souvenir given to the ladies attending the State ball. It commemorates two important events of 1809: the death of Josef Haydn and the Austrian victory over Napoleon's forces. Two of Geyling's 2 lovely color lithographs celebrate the life of Josepf Haydn. One portrays Haydn's last day at the piano. Ten lithographs celebrate The Citizen's Grenadier Division and victory over Napoleon. Geyling (1878-1974) was a major stage & costume designer, and a member of the Wiener Werkstatte. Haydn, the "Father" of Viennese classicism, is credited with redefining the string quartet. He died a few days after the battle of Asparn. This municipal ball was immmortalized in a painting by Wilhelm Gause. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Zwei Jahre unter den Indianern. Reisen in Nordwest-Brasilien 1903/1905.

      Berlin, Wasmuth, 1909/ 1910.. 2 Bände. EA. Mit zusammen 445 fotogr. Abb., teils ganzseitig, teils im Text; weiterhin 22 fotogr. Tafeln in Lichtdruck auf starkem Karton sowie zusammen 5 Karten, 3 davon doppelseitig und mehrfarbig. Beide Bände mit Frontispiez. IV, 355 S. (plus 4 S. Inh.-Verz.unpag.) / 413 S. 4°. Zwei dekorative Halblederbände mit marmorierten Deckeln. Kunstdruck-Papier mit ausgezeichneter Foto-Wiedergabe. Lederrücken und Kapitale etwas berieben, Kanten und Ecken minimal bestoßen; ansonsten ausgezeichneter Zustand, sauber, vollständig, keine Eintragungen, keine Bibl.-Exemplare.. Zwei sehr gut erhaltene Exemplare dieser seltenen, zweibändigen Erstausgabe. Es handelt sich um Exemplare der ersten Druckcharge, die noch nicht bei Strecker&Schröder aus Stuttgart verlegt wurden (und auch einen entsprechenden Aufdruck auf dem Einband-Deckel bzw. dem Titelblatt erhielten), sondern tatsächlich bei Wasmuth in Berlin. Koch-Grünberg war in der Nachfolgeschaft von Ehrenreich und von den Steinen einer der Haupt-'verantwortlichen' für den hervorragenden Ruf der deutschen Brasilien-Ethnologie. Viele Jahre später folgte sein ebenfalls ausgezeichnetes 5-bändiges Werk 'Vom Roroima zum Orinoko'. Fragen Sie auch danach beim Antiquariat KAIAPO. Im Wasmuth-Verlag hatte er schon zuvor das extrem seltene Foto-Tafelwerk 'Indianertypen aus dem Amazonasgebiet' herausgegeben (1906-1911).

        THE BALL AND THE CROSS

      Wells Gardner & Darton , 1909. Wells Gardner & Darton , 1909. First UK edition, suppressed issue from the American sheets with no erratum or cancels, preceding all other English issues. Original green cloth titled in gilt in (possibly supplied) orange dustwrapper printed in green. Top edge gilt. Publisher&#39;s presentation inscription on the half title. A very good copy, with the spine a little faded, in a very good dustwrapper indeed, which is clean and crisp with a slightly tanned spine. Originally printed for John Lane in New York, who issued it under their imprint in 1909. A portion of the sheets allocated to the UK market, however, contained errors and the UK edition was not issued for general circulation until these were corrected in February 1910. Some uncorrected copies were bound up with an integral title page and without cancels, including this copy and the British Library copy. The exact number is not known, but certainly this issue is of great scarcity. Sullivan 17 (note)

"He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (H.G. Wells)."From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled although he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!" (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).Publisher Raphael Tuck (1821-1900), from Germany, came to London in 1870 and shortly established himself as a fine art publisher. ".he saw the opportunity to move into the children's book market with volumes of high pictorial quality and outstanding production.Tuck's books were colourful and imaginative, catered for young and old alike, and covered topics ranging from ancient myths to contemporary events.On his retirement in 1882 he handed the business over to his three sons" (Haining, Moveable Books, pp. 36-37), who continued the firm's tradition of children's books of the highest quality.Wood, Wain, 202.
