KORNGOLD, Erich Wolfgang 1897-1957
1909. 1 page of a bifolium, 111 x 174 mm. Notated in black ink on ivory paper. 4 measures of the introduction from his Piano Trio in D Major, Opus 1 (1909). Signed and dated, Vienna, October 15, 1911. Paper watermarked "Myrtle Mill IVORY PAPER" within a wreath. Slightly worn and browned; minor soiling to margins. Austrian composer Erich Korngold was recognized as a child prodigy by the most important composers and musicians in Europe, achieving wide recognition after the premiere of his ballet Der Schneemann in Vienna in 1910. His piano sonatas were performed by renowned pianist Arthur Schnabel, and the Piano Trio in D Major was published as his Opus 1 by Universal Edition. Richard Strauss remarked: "One's first reaction that these compositions are by a child are those of awe and concern that so precocious a genius should follow its normal development . This assurance of style, this mastery of form, this characteristic expressiveness, this bold harmony, are truly astonishing!" Grove Music Online. Korngold left for the United States in 1934, and ended up settling there permanently. In Hollywood, he became on the first leading film composers, writing symphonic scores for early cinema classics such as Captain Blood (1935), Anthony Adverse (1936), and The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938).

Député de l'Ain de 1900 à 1909. Sénateur de l'Ain de 1909 à 1917. Ministre des Travaux publics du 22 juin 1899 au 4 juin 1902. Ministre de la Marine du 21 janvier 1913 au 9 décembre 1913.

Résumé: En 1909, Baudin publie La politique réaliste à l'extérieur. Il y reprend ses articles du Journal, de la Petite Gironde et de la Grande Revue des années 1907 et 1908. Il y analyse le conflit marocain, la politique de la France en Orient, la réforme de l'armée anglaise, la politique étrangère de l'Italie, etc. Il précise que « par politique réaliste, nous n'entendons pas une politique exclusive de toute pensée généreuse, de toute vie spirituelle. » Il l'oppose à la politique « purement matérialiste et rapace qui prête sans vergogne son appui au plus cruel tyran.

[Cookery] August Schaal
Potosi, Wisconsin: 1909. Pocket sized Potosi State Bank ledger measuring 6.75 x 3.5". Bound in sheep covered card with the name Aug. Schaal on both the front cover and header of the second page. Comprised of 21 handwritten pages containing 32 recipes in the same hand. While we haven't located August, it is possible she is the daughter of the local German farmer George Schaal, listed as living in Potosi and nearby Waterloo during this period per the Commemorative Biographical Record of the Counties of Rock, Green, and Grant (1901). Transforming what would have been a banking receipt book into a cookery receipt book, August Schaal draws together a series of solely vegetarian recipes -- something of an oddity for a German immigrant family. Yet the recipes' focus on vegetables and grains suggests that these were readily available, whereas meat might have been less commonly accessible and overly expensive in a mining region like Potosi. The number of bread recipes suggests this edible was a staple for most meals; August notes different options depending on what type of flour is available, including Wheat, Whole Wheat, Graham, Oatmeal, and Corn breads as well as corn bread variations Southern Spoon Bread and Hoe Cakes. Indeed, a number of the staple recipes which are simple and high yield are identified as "southern" (as in the case of Southern Vegetable Soup). Some have more generic names but draw on what is easy to access: Succotash or Stewed Apricots for example. Other recipes appear to be for special occasions or guests -- more labor intensive, less shelf stable, and with mor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Illustrated with a frontispiece, forty-six, and numerous in-text illustrations. With a half-title. This work is an octavo. Collated, complete. A fascinating look at the quick development of aeronautics at the turn of the twentieth century. This work discusses the possible use of aeroplanes and other flying machines in warfare. This book was published just a few years before the outbreak of the First World War, during which some aeroplanes were indeed used in warfare. This was the first work on aerial warfare to be published for the public, other works before this having been limited to the military. At the time this work was published, aeroplanes were still a very new phenomena, with the first successful manned flight taking place in 1903. Written by R. P. Hearne, who also wrote 'Zeppelins and Super-Zeppelins', and was a motoring journalist. With an introduction by Hiram Maxim, an inventor who is best … [Click Below for Full Description]
