        HAIGA HO^

      1909 - (EHON) NAKAMURA Fusetsu & KAWAHIGASHI Hekigoto. HAIGA HO. Tokyo: Kokado, 1909. 23 x 15.4 cm. String-bound Japanese style in flexible covers with stamped title. This visual and textual examination of the relationship between "haiga", haiku drawings, and the the haiku themselves was a collaborative effort between Fusetsu, a Western-style oil painter who was also perhaps the most eminent practitioner of haiga in his day, and Hekigoto, a noted haiku poet. They were both intimates of Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902) and leaders of the influential literary circle associated with HOTOTOGISU magazine. Counting the decorative title page, there are 13 full page color woodcuts after designs by Fusetsu, 40 calligraphed haiku by Hekigoto reproduced in woodcut and a 38 page scholarly discussion by Fusetsu, as well as a few collotypes. A remarkable piece both visually and for its significance for the development of a new literary and visual aesthetic for Japan in the 20th century. Overall, this copy is very good in the very scarce, original, pictorial wraparound dustwrapper, which is split at the spine with some loss.

        Three Years in Tibet with the original Japanese illustrations

      Adyar, Madras: The Theosophist Office, 1909. Cloth. Good +. xv, 719 p. 63 b&w in-text illustrations, 11 b&w plates (including a fold-out of Mt. Everest at rear), one fold-out map at rear. Green cloth hardcover with gold print. Spine sunned and boards a little discoloured. Top corners bumped. Ink signature and pencil notes on front free endpaper. Text very clean. Ekai Kawaguchi (1866 – 1945) is famous for his four journeys to Nepal and two to Tibet. He was apparently the first recorded Japanese citizen to travel in either country. The first of his journeys to Tibet, the one recorded in this volume, was from 1900 to 1902. Since Tibet was at that time closed to foreigners, Kawaguchi had to first study the Tibetan language in Nepal, then sneak into the country disguised as a Tibetan. A Buddhist monk, he was searching for original Mahayana Buddhist manuscripts. Eventually his Japanese nationality was revealed and he was forced to leave. Publication of Kawaguchi's book in English was arranged by his friend, Theosophical Society President Mrs. Annie Besant. According to the Preface (p. vii), Mrs. Besant believed books by Western authors portrayed Tibet from their own Western point of view, while Kawaguchi's tale would present an Asian view of Tibet to the world. Kawaguchi's tale remains an excellent adventure tale, allowing the reader to imagine what it's like to travel to a totally foreign and forbidding country - with no safety net.

        Psalm 67.

      N.p. A single sheet, measuring 29 by 20 inches, folded once. This large scale illustration features a priest at an altar with his followers. Their arms and faces are uplifted to the sky as they invoke the verse from Psalm 67 which appears as the companion text to this illustration: "Scatter thou the nations that delight in wars:/ ambassadors shall come out of Egypt:/ Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands to God." The artist demonstrates a lighter vein of the satirical wit he came to be associated with: men who symbolize "the nations that delight in wars" meet, greet, and shake hands as if to finalize treaties and seal political deals -- in stark contrast to the religious fervor above. Tegetmeier (1909-1987) became associated with the Roman Catholic circle of the sculptor-artist Eric Gill, working with Gill in cutting and painting the Great War memorial at New College, and eventually becoming his son-in-law. The back of the illusration is signed "E.G. Drawing" in what appears to be Eric Gill's script, suggesting that this copy was a part of his personal collection. Minor overall soiling, small closed tears to right margin, bands of light toning top and bottom.

        Arizona Kicker Newspaper- Tombstone, Arizona, August 1909; Arizona Kicker Mock-Up; Arizona Kicker Newsstand Placard

      Tombstone, AZ: William Hattich. Very Good. 1909. Newspaper. A set of three newspaper items from the early 20th century from the legendary boomtown, Tombstone, Arizona. Includes the Arizona Kicker newspaper from August, 1909, a planning mock-up and a newsstand placard, both for said newspaper. The "Arizona Kicker" newspaper is an issue from August 1909, first published by Stanley C. Bagg in 1893 as the midweek edition of the "Tombstone Prospector" newspaper. William Hattich took over the "Tombstone Prospector" and with it, the "Arizona Kicker," in 1895. From that point the "Arizona Kicker" was issued irregularly until 1909. Item 1: "Arizona Kicker" newspaper has 8 pages, is 15" tall and has black text and illustrations. Pages are not numbered and the two leaves laid in the newspaper have the same content (duplicates). It is in very good condition with browning to all pages and moderate chipping on edges of first page and light chipping to edges on all other pages. The headline of the August, 1909 issue was "We Have Been Sued," and other stories include "The Kicker Rules," "Musicale in Godless Gulch" and many more. Item 2: A planning mock-up for the "Arizona Kicker," a scarce item. The mock-up is 16 1/2" tall, 34 pages, and is in good condition. The mock-up has some pages with stories (cuts) tipped in while some pages are not complete. The first page has many tears around all edges with an ink stain across the center of the page. All other pages are in good condition with light chipping and browning. The issued associated with this planning mock-up is unknown. The mock-up has the headline story (cut 1) being called "We are sued" with a cartoon that has many similarities to the cartoon found in the August 1909 issue, but the rest of the content doesn't coincide with the 1909 issue. Item 3: Blue newsstand placard with black text, 11" wide by 5" tall. It is in very good condition with moderate chipping and dampstains to right corner. There is no date associated with this placard, but it reads "Arizona Kicker, You want it! Subscriptions taken here." The price for a subscription was "50 cts for 3 months" or "$2 per annum."

[Schwerdt I, p. 228: "A discussion between a young lady and her sporting lover on the cruelty of modern stag hunting illustrated with attractive plates". / An entry in an auction catalogue of THE ANDERSON AUCTION COMPANY from 1909 reads: "A Sporting Book seldom offered for Sale"] Edward Robert Smythe was one of the foremost painters of the Suffolk School. After early aspirations of a military life he became an artist, and worked in Ipswich alongside artists such as Robert Burrows, and his brother Thomas (1825-1906). In 1840 Smythe moved to Norwich, and is said to have worked with John Sell Cotman. He was undoubtedly influenced by several Norwich School artists, such as his friend Frederick Ladbrooke. His work attracted commissions from eminent patrons such as the Earl of Cardigan, and the Greene family.
