        Royal Academy Pictures And Sculpture 1909 [With Handwritten Manuscript Meditation By Carl Oscar Borg]

      London: Cassell and Company, 1909. First Edition . Green Cloth, Gilt. Near Fine. Plates Throughout. 160 Pp. Green Cloth, Gilt. Clean Example Of The 1909 Issue, Gilt Brilliant, Notable For The Long Prose Meditation By Carl Oscar Borg Which He Has Written And Signed On The Recto Of The Frontispiece: "Yellow Leaves: Yellow Leaves, Our Best And Brightest Thoughts Are They. The Deeds And Dreams Of Our Youth. A Sweet Sadness Emanates From Them As Trhe Shadows Fall Deeper And Deeper And The Wings Of Silence Hover Over The Past. Yellow Leaves, Moving Against The Evening Sun's Last Flickering Light, You Are Like A Sweet Melody Played By A Hand Gently Caressing The Golden Strings, Or A Song Sung By A Poet When First His Soul Knows The Terrible Truth Of Life And Is Overflowing With Silent Sorrow And Unspeakable Joy. Yellow Leaves, Falling Through The Clear Lights Of Evening To Mingle With The Cold And Dark Dust Of Earth, You Are Like Our Own Tired Souls That Are Seeking Rest In The Dreams Of Nirvana; Or Like The Spirit Of Fire We Have Drawn From The Heights Of The Ideal, The Holy Fire That Has Died -- No, Not Died As Yet, Still It Glows In The Fading Light Like All Of Our Dosappointed Hopes, Our Shattered Illusions, -- You Glow And Shine Against The Sky Like Crowns Of The Blessed Against The Virgin's Dark Blue Mantle, And So Is Even Your Death A Death Of Beauty. Yellow Leaves In The Yellow Forest Of Life (,) Roads And Paths Are Hidden Under Your Golden Mantle, And When The Winds Are Moving Among The Trees It Is The Memories Of The Past, Pale Legends Of Our Dead Loves, Of Our Sorrows And Our Joys That Are Singing Their Meloncholy Tales With Soft And Inspiring Voices. Carl Oscar Borg Los Angeles. July 1910". Also With Borg's Earlier Ownership Signature On The Front Free Endpaper, Dated Los Angeles 1909. Probably A Gift To The Sculptor Julia Bracken Wendt Or Her Husband William Wendt, And Then A Gift To The Artist Pasquale Giovanni Napolitano, Who Apparently Owned It Since The 1920'S Or 1930'S.

        Ricerche sui fenomeni ipnotici e spiritici con 57 figure intercalate nel testo e 2 tavole separate.Torino, Utet, 1909.

      Torino, Utet 1909 - Cm. 24,5, pp. viii, 319 (1). Con decine di ill. n.t. (disegni e fotografie) e 2 tavole f.t. (una di autografi in doppia pagina e una a colori). Legatura coeva in mezza pelle con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso. Trascurabili segni del tempo alla legatura, peraltro esemplare fresco e ben conservato. Cesare Lombroso (Verona 1835 - Torino 1909) fu il più autorevole studioso italiano di antropologia criminale. Quest'opera, uscita postuma, è il frutto delle ultime fatiche dell'Autore basate su esperimenti condotti insieme alla medium Eusapia Paladino tra Napoli (1891), Milano, Genova e l'Institut General de Psychologie di Parigi. Dopo un atteggiamento iniziale di rifiuto nei confronti dei fenomeni spiritici, Lombroso giunse a teorizzare l'ipotesi di una forza psichica non giustificabile scientificamente, forse condizionato dal fatto di aver avuto la visione della madre durante una seduta spiritica.

The publishers are indebted to Messr.George Routlrdge & Sons, Ltd., for permission to use those from the version of the Rev. G.F. Townsend." The twenty-five fables include all of your favorites ("The hare and the tortoise;" "The wasp and the snake;" "The town mouse and the country mouse;" and many more).

Charles committed suicide in 1908; this was the first book Edward illustrated after his brother's death.

        Eragny Press] Histoire de la Reine du Matin et de Soliman Ben-Daoud

      Eragny Press, London 1909 - One of the great works of the press, limited to 130 copies on Arches, of which this is number 54 for M. F. Imhoof Bloomer (printed). Exquisitely bound in publisher's original limp olive-green lambskin gilt, overall repeat design of carnation and scrolled foliage. Book is printed in red and black, wood-engraved title printed in green and gold, wood-engraved border and initials printed in gold and colors, wood-engraved illustrations and tailpieces printed in green, all by Esther and Lucien Pissarro after Lucien Pissarro. Lucien Pissarro's recollection of the production of this book and its importance in the development of the Eragny Press are recorded in Notes on the Eragny Press: "For lack of capital, I was not able to print the books I wanted to produce until the French began, at last, to take an interest in the revival of printing. Mr Roger Marx, who knew of my efforts, introduced me to Mr Rodrigues, the President of the Society of the 'Cent Bibliophiles' in Paris. The latter asked me to produce a book for them, giving me carte blanche with regard to text, illustrations, size, paper, etc. This gave me the opportunity I wanted and with a quiet mind as to cost, I set to work on the production of the Historie de Soliman . by Gérard de Nerval. For this book we used gold leaf in the printing of the initial letters. This gave us much trouble and we had to invent a technique to overcome the great difficulty of preventing the gold leaf from sticking to the wet hand-made paper, and after many attempts we were successful." The binding was executed to a design by Henri Marius-Michel and the art-nouveau style reflects the orientalist legend. A magnificent, fine copy of a high-point in book production.

        Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám. Rendered into English verse by Edward Fitzgerald.

      Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám. Rendered into English Verse by Edward Fitzgerald. With Illustrations by Edmund Dulac.Hodder and Stoughton, New York and London. Hard Cover. Limited. [1909]. ONE OF ONLY 200 DELUXE NUMBERED COPIES FOR AMERICA. Large 4to Original vellum over boards pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Illustrated with 20 full-page mounted color plates by Edmund Dulac.Book Condition: Very Good +, silk ribbon tie is missing - bright, clean, no marks or tears.In the 'Rubaiyat' (short epigrammatic poems) of the medieval Persian poet, mathematician, and philosopher Omar Khayyam, Edward Fitzgerald saw an unflinching challenge to the illusions and consolations of mankind in every age. His version of Omar is neither a translation nor an independent poem; sceptical of divine providence and insistent on the pleasure of the passing moment, its 'Orientalism' offers FitzGerald a powerful and distinctive voice, in whose accents a whole Victorian generation comes to life. Although the poem's vision is bleak, it is conveyed in some of the most beautiful and haunting images in English poetry - and some of the sharpest- edged. The poem sold no copies at all on its first appearance in 1859, yet when it was 'discovered' two years later its first admirers included Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Swinburne, and Ruskin.

        LEBENDE MARMOR-BILDWERKE [Living Marble-Sculptures. Performed at the Evenings of Beauty in Berlin by O. D. and A. S.] Map with 12 original silver bromide photographies

      Otto SKOWRANEK; Max THIELERT: Lebende Marmor-Bildwerke [Living Marble-Sculptures]. Dargestellt an den Schönheit-Abenden in Berlin von Olga Desmond und Adolf Salge. [Performed at the Evenings of Beauty in Berlin by O. D. and A. S.] Map with 12 original silver bromide photographies (15:22cm). Berlin-Steglitz: Neue Photographische Gesellschaft s.a. [ca. 1909]. 8°. 4 pages. 13 photographies (whereof 1 a later print), all loose in a map with cloth spine, marbled boards on cream stock, green decorative title printing on front cover and 3 flaps. Outstanding set of 12 well developed and preserved original silver bromide photographies showing a consecutive series of nude scenes with German dancer and actress Olga Desmond (i.e. Olga Sellin, 1890-1964) in focus. Desmond was one of the first female performers who promoted motion nudity on stage as a means of aesthetic expression, and was therefore heavily oppressed in conservative Prussia, where public performances only of rigid bodies, e.g. as imitation of famous ancient classical sculptures, were morally accepted. Starting in 1908 she and her male partner, the athlete Adolf Salge, performed scenographed series of »living pictures«, often complemented by dance movements and supported by music. These so-called »Evenings of Beauty« (Schönheits-Abende) took place in the Berlin Neues Schauspielhaus, as well as in other German cities like Leipzig and Breslau and even in St. Petersburg. Of great popularity, well covered by the media and the cultural industry (even postcards were produced) as well as documented by this series of photographies for sale, those events were nevertheless prohibited severals times, because Desmond and her partners usually posed and moved nude, wearing only body-paint. But her reputation as a cultural (and also early feminist) trouble-maker was also a good business opportunity. Desmond even sold cosmetic products carrying her name, thus being a predecessor of Salma Hayek, Eva Mendes and the like. Known sets of this series usually contain 11 photographies, whereof the 1st is a dressed-up portrait of the actress and the other 10 show »living pictures«. Sometimes the prints were tipped on the photographer's (Hofphotograph Skowraneck) printed grey boards that also incorporate captions like „Adoration", „Venus Anadyomene" or „Flirt". Other sets only contain the plain silver bromide prints not tipped-on, like the preceded. Originally also a sheet with 4 ornamented pages of introducing text by Max Thieler was attached. Preceded set lacks this attachment and the introducing photo portrait of the dressed Desmond, both are reproduced in good quality. However it contains a bonus of two prints with motives showing the performer with a veil, unknown to the other sets. All photographies bear the stamp of „Neue Photographische Gesellschaft". Photographies with silver margins, boards of map slightly foxy, former owner's name on front cover and inside, flaps with some minor tears, generally a fine and rare set.

WHO WAS THE ARTIST ASAI CHU [Tadashi] [1856-1907]: . Per Roberts below states, he was a "Western-style painter, born in Kazusa province, moved to Tokyo, later Kyoto, a pupil of Kunisawa Shikuro at his private school Shogido in 1875, and Antonio Fontanesi the next year at the Kobu Daigaku Bijitsu Gakko. In 1888, with Kawamura Kiyo-o and others, set up the Meiji Bijutsukai. In 1898 taught at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts. Served as a war artist in the Sino-Japanese war. From 1900 to 1902 in France, living first in Paris, then in Grez [near Paris], where he did some of his best work; exhibited at the Paris Exposition of 1900. On his return moved to Kyoto and became professor at the Kyoto Kogei Gakko; also took a leading part in Kyoto art circles as director of the Kansai Bijutsuin and founder of the Shogoin Yoga Kenkyusho. Among his best pupils were Ishii Hakutei, Umehara Ryuzaburo, and Yasui Sotaro. A leading painter of his time, most influential in the development of Western-style painting in Japan." He is well collected by world museums. *** Wikipedia has an excellent article on Asai Chu. Asai Chu was a Japanese painter, noted for his pioneering work in developing the yoga (Western-style) art movement in late 19th century and early twentieth-century Japanese painting. . Asai was born to an ex-samurai class household in Sakura, in the Kanto region of Japan, where his father had been a retainer of the Sakura Domain. He attended the domain school, where his father was principal, and left home in 1873 to pursue English language studies in Tokyo. However, he became interested in the arts, and enrolled as a pupil of Kunisawa Shinkuro in western oil painting classes. In 1876, he enrolled as one of the first students in the Kobubijutsu Gakko [the Technical Fine Arts School], where he was able to study under the Italian foreign advisor Antonio Fontanesi, who had been hired by the Meiji government in the late 1870s to introduce Western oil painting to Japan. . He also tutored the noted poet Masaoka Shiki in the techniques of Western art, and was the model for a character in Natsume Soseki’s novel "SANSHIRO." . Asai also used a number of "Go" or "studio names: Go: Mokugo, Mokugyo. . A number of Asai’s works have been recognized by the Japanese government's Agency for Cultural Affairs as "IMPORTANT CULTURAL PROPERTIES.". . *** . THE TWO EDITIONS: [AND UNSODO THE PUBLISHER] . The title was printed in two editions: The FIRST EDITION OF 1909, superbly done, and a much later and poor quality edition of 1927. . This the FIRST EDITION OF 1909 is an exceptionally fine printing of the first pull off the woodblocks in full color. The quality of Unsodo in their early days was of the highest standard in Japan of the period. . The second edition was printed some eight years later in 1927, reflecting the world-wide depression attitude of poor-quality Japanese goods. This edition is c
