        KOWA THE MYSTERIOUS ... Translated from the French by William Frederick Harvey

      London: Everett & Co., 1909.. Octavo, pp. [i-v] vi [7-9] 10-320, original decorated olive green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and gold, publisher's monogram stamped in blind on rear panel, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition in English. A translation of KOWA, LA MYSTERIEUSE, a frequently reprinted novel by this prolific French writer. Wild, racist, melodramatic mystery novel with yellow peril theme. Jacques Bermond, a young Frenchman traveling to America to seek his fortune, befriends Tao, a humble Chinese merchant whose suspicious behavior incurs the wrath of fellow traveler Carl Stone, a multimillionaire and the most powerful man in the State of Kofa (California). Tao loses face and vows revenge -- "accursed man of the sea, for the blow you dared not give me, you shall receive a knife-thrust in your heart." Shortly after his arrival in Kowa (San Francisco), the capital city of Kofa, Jacques is hired by Stone and his first task is to find one of Stone's plant managers who has gone missing in Chinatown. The invasion of Kowa by the Chinese is "an epidemic ... The Celestial Empire disgorges on us all the rabble, and they plunder, rob and murder us every day. Our town has become more and more dangerous by night, and even by day. We no longer attempt to reckon the number of thefts, assaults, and murders that take place in Kowa. The police themselves don't even know how many men, women, and children have disappeared and left no trace behind them. The mystery in which all this is shrouded adds every day to our terror and forebodings." With the help of the crafty Tao, Stone's manager is found, but he has been drugged and has no memory of what happened to him. Shortly thereafter, Stone's wife, Evelyn, mysteriously disappears. The police are baffled. Evelyn's companion, Janine Flory, solves the mystery and sets out alone to find Evelyn but, while following her trail, vanishes as well. Both women have been kidnapped by the Chinese and taken to a secret city, "Kowa, the Mysterious," built in a vast cavern under San Francisco where the Orientals, who have enslaved thousands of Whites, plot to take over the country. Jacques must now work again with Tao (who is a powerful Mandarin, not a poor Chinese merchant) to rescue the women in return for Jacques' vow to not reveal the existence of the underground city. Much of the novel is set in the barbaric, claustrophobic and menacing Kowa, the "City of Darkness." When all seems lost and Jacques, Janine and Evelyn are fated to die in the bowels of the earth, an earthquake collapses the cavern and destroys the subterranean city and its teeming millions (the true cause of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire). Considerable anti-Chinese sentiment throughout the novel. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 302. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 85. Bleiler (1978), p. 74 (coding "lost race"). Reginald 05499. Not in Hubin (1994). Not in Baird and Greenwood. Cloth rubbed at edges, several mild stains to front and rear panels, generally, a very good copy. (#148913)

        TO THE POLES BY AIRSHIP OR AROUND THE WORLD ENDWAYS

      Los Angeles, Cal.: Baumgardt Publishing Co., 1909.. Octavo, pp. [1-13] 14-108 [109] [110-112: blank] [note: first and last leaves are blanks], inserted frontispiece (photographic portrait of the author), one illustration in text (diagram of the airship), original maroon cloth, front panel stamped in white. First edition. One of the more confused and shapeless products of eccentric American fantasy from the turn of the century, yet within this congealed lump of prose lurk sparks of unintentional hilarity and odd insight. The main section of the text is a compressed travelogue of a flight around the globe starting in the Gulf of Mexico, heading to the North Pole, thence over Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the South Pole, South America and back to North America. The ship is built of aluminum and powered by "liquid air." A touch of a button turns this into "VACUUM-ALUMINUM Corliss engines." The passengers of the ship witness various natural spectacles (lightning storms, tornadoes, volcanoes) and pass over an unknown continent with ruins of a lost civilization that might have been Atlantis. Part II consists of four short sketches, semi-unrelated to the main narrative. These narrate, partly via a speaking Sphinx, an apocalyptic future in which all the armies of the planet align themselves on the side of either East or West, and square off in what was ancient Israel. After one cataclysmic battle, and a cease fire to bury the dead, a lunar eclipse serves as a prelude for a vision of all the wars of the past, from Biblical, classical and medieval times; the sight of it sobers the nations of the world into a state of millennial peace. The author proclaims with Zionist fervor: "The chronometer of the universe is striking twelve. THE HOUR OF THE JEW HAS COME." Mankind finally arrives at the final utopia. An odd work which is not that easy to dismiss out of hand. The prescient rubs shoulders with the preposterous. Liquid air (whatever that means) is one of the author's obsessions, popping up here repeatedly. He foresees in the future the existence of vast factories with steel flues a thousand feet high built in the coldest parts of the earth to manufacture, or extract, liquid air and pipe it to the other parts of the earth. This sounds laughable, but, engineering issues aside, the atmosphere does consist partly of oxygen, which is flammable. The author is also bullish on radium, speculating that it may be the main ingredient of the sun; and that "… LIFE may be produced by means of rays of light generated by RADIUM." Vast pyramids of radium will be constructed in Europe to warm the climate and transform the land into an agricultural paradise. Elsewhere, and more impressively, he declares that Africa is the "birthplace of civilization." (At the time, this honor was usually given to the Fertile Crescent in Iraq; now it is believed that homo sapiens first appeared in the Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia.) Flying over what we would now call the Brazilian rain forest, he describes this as "God's CLEARING HOUSE of the world's physical forces," the most important source of oxygen and other essential elements. Much of the author's message can be dismissed as boilerplate bomfog (brotherhood of man, fatherhood of God -- which, with Mom and apple pie, has served as the Brazilian rain forest of politicians' oratory since primeval times). Yet in the midst of the sentimental blather and scientific howlers comes a pronouncement which lies still (especially now) at the heart of a vital controversy, ranging Malthusian pessimists and regulators on one side, and entrepreneurs on the other. This principal has only found widespread articulation recently with the arrival of the Information Age. "HUMAN LIFE IS THE GREATEST NATURAL RESOURCE OF THE UNIVERSE." A very short book (mercifully, given the clumsy writing) that manages nevertheless to corral a herd of important fantastic motifs together: the imaginary voyage, the tale of the future (including a future war), utopia, advanced technology, the clash of civilizations, Atlantis and the lost race story. The miraculous vision of past wars recalls the famous Machen tale of "The Bowmen," used several years later for partisan purposes to rally English morale. Here it is used impartially to save the warring parties from themselves. "... deserves notice because it reinforces so many ideas of the period." -- Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 827. Bleiler (1978), p. 212. Reginald 15639. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 147. Smith, American Literature, 1901-1925 W-905. "Presented to / Lincoln Park Christian Church" faintly stamped on the front free endpaper. A few mild rub marks to cloth, a nearly fine copy. A nice copy of a very scarce book. (#151657)

        THE MAGICIAN ..

      New York: Duffield & Company, 1909.. Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1-3] 4-310 [311-314: blank] [note: first and last two leaves are blanks], original pictorial slate blue cloth, front panel stamped in orange, green and black, spine panel stamped in orange and green. First U.S. edition. Maugham made revisions in the text of the American edition, in some instances considerably expanding it. Generally regarded as occult fantasy, this novel is actually science fiction. The villain, Oliver Haddo, modeled upon Aleister Crowley, studies the occult, ancient alchemy and modern biological science, and successfully creates life. Remains a very readable science fiction horror novel. "THE MAGICIAN (1908) presents a savage portrait of Aleister Crowley, easily recognized as Haddo, a student of occultism who forces a young woman to marry him by casting a glamour upon her, and who eventually sacrifices her in order to create a homunculus." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 634. Crowley, with whom Maugham once roomed in Paris, elected to be perversely flattered by the grotesque characterization, calling it "an amusing hotchpot of stolen goods." Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror 4-111. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-144. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1135. Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 359.

Both missions were undertaken under Sir Henry McMahon, who was later Governor-General of Baluchistan, and who here commends Tate in his introduction for for the "strength and picturesque colouring of his portraiture of the country and people he describes".

        TO THE POLES BY AIRSHIP OR AROUND THE WORLD ENDWAYS.

      Los Angeles, Cal.: Baumgardt Publishing Co.,. 1909. original maroon cloth, front panel stamped in white.. "Presented to / Lincoln Park Christian Church" faintly stamped on the. front free endpaper. A few mild rub marks to cloth, a nearly fine. copy. A nice copy of a very scarce book. (#151657). First edition. One of the more confused and shapeless products of eccentric American fantasy from the turn of the century, yet within this congealed lump of prose lurk sparks of unintentional hilarity and odd insight. The main section of the text is a compressed travelogue of a flight around the globe starting in the Gulf of Mexico, heading to the North Pole, thence over Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the South Pole, South America and back to North America. The ship is built of aluminum and powered by "liquid air." A touch of a button turns this into "VACUUM- ALUMINUM Corliss engines." The passengers of the ship witness various natural spectacles (lightning storms, tornadoes, volcanoes) and pass over an unknown continent with ruins of a lost civilization that might have been Atlantis. Part II consists of four short sketches, semi-unrelated to the main narrative. These narrate, partly via a speaking Sphinx, an apocalyptic future in which all the armies of the planet align themselves on the side of either East or West, and square off in what was ancient Israel. After one cataclysmic battle, and a cease fire to bury the dead, a lunar eclipse serves as a prelude for a vision of all the wars of the past, from Biblical, classical and medieval times; the sight of it sobers the nations of the world into a state of millennial peace. The author proclaims with Zionist fervor: "The chronometer of the universe is striking twelve. THE HOUR OF THE JEW HAS COME." Mankind finally arrives at the final utopia. An odd work which is not that easy to dismiss out of hand. The prescient rubs shoulders with the preposterous. Liquid air (whatever that means) is one of the author's obsessions, popping up here repeatedly. He foresees in the future the existence of vast factories with steel flues a thousand feet high built in the coldest parts of the earth to manufacture, or extract, liquid air and pipe it to the other parts of the earth. This sounds laughable, but, engineering issues aside, the atmosphere does consist partly of oxygen, which is flammable. The author is also bullish on radium, speculating that it may be the main ingredient of the sun; and that "- LIFE may be produced by means of rays of light generated by RADIUM." Vast pyramids of radium will be constructed in Europe to warm the climate and transform the land into an agricultural paradise. Elsewhere, and more impressively, he declares that Africa is the "birthplace of civilization." (At the time, this honor was usually given to the Fertile Crescent in Iraq; now it is believed that homo sapiens first appeared in the Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia.) Flying over what we would now call the Brazilian rain forest, he describes this as "God's CLEARING HOUSE of the world's physical forces," the most important source of oxygen and other essential elements. Much of the author's message can be dismissed as boilerplate bomfog (brotherhood of man, fatherhood of God - - which, with Mom and apple pie, has served as the Brazilian rain forest of politicians' oratory since primeval times). Yet in the midst of the sentimental blather and scientific howlers comes a pronouncement which lies still (especially now) at the heart of a vital controversy, ranging Malthusian pessimists and regulators on one side, and entrepreneurs on the other. This principal has only found widespread articulation recently with the arrival of the Information Age. "HUMAN LIFE IS THE GREATEST NATURAL RESOURCE OF THE UNIVERSE." A very short book (mercifully, given the clumsy writing) that manages nevertheless to corral a herd of important fantastic motifs together: the imaginary voyage, the tale of the future (including a future war), utopia, advanced technology, the clash of civilizations, Atlantis and the lost race story. The miraculous vision of past wars recalls the famous Machen tale of "The Bowmen," used several years later for partisan purposes to rally English morale. Here it is used impartially to save the warring parties from themselves. "... deserves notice because it reinforces so many ideas of the period." -- Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 827. Bleiler (1978), p. 212. Reginald 15639. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 147. Smith, American Literature, 1901-1925 W-905.

Tanzspiel nach eigenem Buch des österreichischen Komponisten Julius Bittner (1874-1939). Sehr ansprechend gestaltete Broschüre mit Kostümentwürfen und Einbandgestaltung von dem ungenannten Koloman Moser. ?Die künstlerische Zusammenarbeit von Moser und Bittner geht auf das Jahr 1909 zurück, als Bittners Ballett ?Der Mantel der Liebe? im Gartentheater der internationalen Kunstschau uraufgeführt wurde. Ein undatierter Brief Kolo Mosers, der aus dem Jahr 1909 stammen muß, handelt von diesem Projekt: ??Es wäre gut wenn gleich nach Fertigstellung Ihrer Arbeiten [Klavierpart] mit den Proben begonnen werden könnte. Gretl Wiesenthal ist entzückt. [] Gretl möchte eventuell bei Reinhardt in Berlin die Lilith spielen und ihrer Schwester Else die Minne überlassen! []. Wir werden dann festsetzen ob und wann eine Zusammenkunft von Godlewsky, Gretl, Wimmer, Ihnen etc. stattfinden soll.? Die in dem Brief angekündigte Mitwirkung von Grete und Elsa Wiesenthal kam nicht zustande. Die Hauptrollen der Minne und Lilith tanzten bei der am 25. Juni 1909 stattfindenden Uraufführung Lene [d.i. Marie Madeleine] und Miss Macara. Die Choreographie stammte von Karl Godlewsky, die Inszenierung vom Architekten E. J. Wimmer [d.i. Eduard Josef Wimmer-Wisgrill ?], die musikalische Leitung hatte Egon Bloch inne.?
