        Typed Poem Signed

      1910. Signed. DUNBAR, Paul Laurence. Typed poem signed. No place, circa 1900. One sheet, 8-1/2 by 11 inches. $2600.Typed poem in dialect signed by Paul Laurence Dunbar. Apparently a printerÂ’s or publisherÂ’s copy.Frederick Douglass called Dunbar, the first African-American literary figure to achieve national prominence, “one of the sweetest songsters his race has produced and a man of whom I hope great things.” Dunbar was particularly noted for writing his poetry in both classical English and in African-American dialect. There are several autograph changes to the poem, likely written by Dunbar, and the word “accept” is written above the poem. The first of three stanzas of the poem reads: “FuÂ’ de peace oÂ’ my eachinÂ’ heels, set down, / donÂ’ fiddle dat chune no moÂ’. / DonÂ’ you see how dat melody stuhs me up? / AnÂ’ baigs me to tek to de floÂ’?/ You knows IÂ’s a Christian, good anÂ’ strong: / I wusship fÂ’om June to June; / My praÂ’ahs dey ah loud anÂ’ my hymns ah long; / I baig you donÂ’ fiddle dat chune.” The poem concludes with DunbarÂ’s signature. It appears this was a copy submitted to a publisher. Light rubbing with some loss to extremities of paper. One rub to poem. A wonderful, extremely good copy.

They should get to me right away so I can prepare with ease... I will need at least twenty days so that the examination would not be too superficial, but rather, loving." Creased at folds; short tear to central fold; last blank page slightly stained at lower right. Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari (1876-1948) was an Italian composer best known for his operas Cenerentola, Le donne curiose, and I Gioielli della Madonna, among others.The present letter may concern the score of I Gioielli, which premiered at the Berlin Kurfürstenoper on December 23, 1911.

        The Emerald City of Oz.

      Chicago: Reilly & Britton, 1910. First edition, first state of the sixth Oz book, with 16 full-page color illustrations by John R. Neill. Octavo, original light blue cloth, illustrated with 16 color plates with metallic green ink and numerous black & white drawings by John R. Neill. Near fine in the rare original dust jacket with some light rubbing and wear. The last jacketed copy brought $15,600 at auction. Leaving their financial troubles behind, Dorothy Gale, Uncle Henry and Aunty Em move to Oz. As they tour the magical land on their way to the Emerald City, Dorothy and her family visit never-before seen strange and wonderful parts of Oz, including a city of paper dolls, a city of jigsaw people, and a city of bunnies. Meanwhile, the wicked Nome king plots to conquer Oz and enslave its people, and prepares to invade the Emerald City just as Dorothy and her family arrive. Baum intended to conclude his popular series with this volume. By the tale's end, the sorceress Glinda has made the fairyland invisible to the outside world, and Dorothy and her aunt and uncle, facing eviction from their Kansas farm, have settled in the Emerald City to stay. Baum's own bankruptcy the next year, however, would mean he "had no choice but to call once more upon the magic of Oz in an attempt to restore his fortunes" (Eyles, 48).

        IN FAYER: A DRAMA IN DRAY AKTEN

      Vilna; Ferlag ‘di Velt’; Vilner Farlag Fun B. A. Kletskin [1910] - Later boards. 8vo. 78 pages. 22 cm. First edition. In Yiddish. ‘In Fire’, a drama in three acts. ’ Written by A Vayter (also Waiter; pseudonym of Ayzik Meyer Devenishski; ca. 1878–1919) ; "Yiddish writer, political activist, and cultural figure. Born in a shtetl in the Vilna region to a strictly observant family that operated a tavern, Ayzik Meyer Devenishski received a traditional Jewish education. In his youth, he became familiar with Haskalah literature, and later studied Russian and Polish literature and the works of radical and revolutionary thinkers. Devenishski left the traditional world and joined the Bund at the time of its inception. He was active in Kovno, Minsk, and Vilna under his party pseudonym "Comrade Aron, " and endeavored to strengthen the national elements of the Bund platform. Devenishski was arrested several times and exiled to Siberia. When his term of exile was over, Devenishski settled in Vilna in 1905, where he contributed to the local Russian press. He played a central role in the revolutionary events of 1905 in Vilna. In 1906, he began his career as a Yiddish writer with a short story under his new pseudonym, A. Vayter, and from then on his literary work was increasingly important to him. Vayter’s transition from political to cultural activities is seen as emblematic of significant circles of the Jewish intelligentsia after the failure of the first Russian Revolution. Along with Shmuel Niger and Shemaryahu Gorelik, Vayter coedited the pioneering journal Literarishe monatshriftn (Literary Monthly) in 1908; he wrote its manifesto postulating a renaissance of Jewish culture and calling for the return of Jewish intelligentsia to it. Vayter also began writing plays, among which Der shtumer (The Mute; 1912) became popular and was produced often, mainly by amateur theater groups. His plays and short stories focus on the disillusionment of modern Jewish intellectuals as they tried to find a way back to traditional yidishkayt. In that period, he also showed great interest in modern Yiddish theater, both in his critical essays and reviews and through his organizational work with Y. L. Peretz and other writers. From 1909 to 1911, Vayter was on the editorial staff of Der fraynd, where he published—among other pieces—the first review of Dovid Bergelson’s literary debut. In 1911, Vayter became the manager of the B. Kletskin publishing house in Vilna, considered from the very beginning to be the preeminent Yiddish publishing house in Eastern Europe. In 1918, Vayter returned to Vilna after several years of Siberian exile. He was very involved in Yiddish cultural activities that had taken root there during the months of Bolshevik rule. When the Poles entered Vilna in April 1919, they carried out a bloody pogrom, and Polish legionnaires executed Vayter by firing squad after falsely accusing him of being a Bolshevik. The memory of his murder became a symbol reminding Jews both of the brutal antisemitic attitude on the part of Poles in the first months of Poland’s independence and of the specific problems that characterized the situation of Jews in Vilna between the two World Wars. This symbol was embodied in the monument at Vayter’s grave in the Jewish cemetery in Vilna. Immediately following the author’s death, Vayter-bukh: Tsum ondenk fun Vayter (Vayter Book: In Memory of Vayter; 1920) was published under the editorship of Shmuel Niger and Zalmen Reyzen. In 1923, Vayter’s Ksovim (Writings) were published with a comprehensive introduction by A. Y. Goldshmidt—the most important source on Vayter’s life and work. His three plays were published in separate editions. " (Yivo Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe; A Vayter) Errata slip inserted. Subjects: Yiddish Drama. OCLC lists 10 copies.

The first musician to "surrender to the persuasion of promises and liberation", Pratella was courted early on by Marinetti to join his new movement that he hoped would breathe new life into Italian culture. Though not as nihilistic as Russolo's Art of Noises published three years later, he still makes what at the time, were revolutionary demands that musicians break from the traditional, proclaiming in a later manifesto that" the new order of disorder should be created by destroying the ancient schemes."

There is a slight stain on the top margin (no impact to text). Two pages have "Art Branch" stamped on them. Facsimile of xylography text and marks. Small Seal Script, formerly romanized as Hsiao-chuan and also known as Seal Script, Lesser Seal Script and Qin Script, is an archaic form of Chinese calligraphy. It was standardized and promulgated as a national standard by Li Si, prime minister under Shi Huangdi, the First Emperor of Qin.[Wikipedia] Ikenaga Doun (1665 - 1737) was a Japanese seal-carver and calligrapher. The Ikenaga were a powerful provincial family in Odawara, Sagami Province (now Kanagawa Prefect.). Doun was adopted into the Ikenaga family and became its fifth-generation head. His seal album Itto bansho was the forerunner of artistic seal albums in Japan.

        Trans-Himalaya: Discoveries and Adventures in Tibet Three volumes

      London: Macmillan and Co.. Good with no dust jacket. 1910-13. Hardcover. Volume One has the rear board almost detached, with the rear hinge broken and the cloth split along most of the rear joint. Volumes Two and Three have a darker area on the spine, and Volume One has the entire spine darker than one would expect when compared to the fading of the spines on the other two volumes. The darker colour seems be due to dye applied to the spine to cover up faded areas where labels have been removed, hence possibly an ex-library set. There are no other signs of being ex-library other than the unusual treatment to the spines. Volume One has chips and tears to the margins of the first leaf of the Preface, with no loss of text. Gutters split at front and rear hinge of Volume Two and at rear hinge of Volume Three. A few short 1" and smaller tears to the margins of some of the folding maps. Rear free endpaper lacking in each volume. A good working set.; xxiii, [1], 436; xvii, [1], 441; xv, [1], 426 pages + advertisements + 544 illustrations (388 numbered illustrations in volumes I and II, including frontispieces, + 155 numbered illustrations in volume III + frontispiece in volume III) + 14 maps (including 4 colour folding maps). Volumes I and II: Second printing, 1910. Volume III: First printing, 1913. [NB: These are second and first printings of the first English edition, not the smaller format colonial edition which had far fewer illustrations.] Red cloth boards. Gilt illustration on front board of each volume. Page dimensions: 224 x 148mm. Top page edges gilt. "The illustrations should be leniently criticized; with one or two exceptions they are from my own photographs and sketches.

        Bo?stva a kulty [Divinities and cults]

      self-published (tip. Politika), Prague 1910 - Octavo (22.5 × 19 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; [21] pp., [6] leaves of plates, of which five color woodcuts; thirteen small vignettes in the text. Wrappers professionally restored to lower corners and edges; internally fine, with the plates in bright color. First edition of this book of occult-themed verse, accompanied by five full-page color woodcuts by the visionary mystic Czech painter and graphic artist Josef Váchal (1884-1969). The poet ?imánek (1883-1959) was a member of the hermeticist group Universalia and the symbolist movement Sursum, both of which were heavily influenced by occult theosophical and occult interests. Though a major Czech modernist writer, and considered by some a pioneer of Czech science fiction, ?imánek is today largely neglected. An important collaboration between poet and artist, combining attractive typography with Váchal's evocative and exotic color woodcuts. This is copy 179 of only 260 numbered copies. The colophone notes that "no new editions of this book will ever be printed," suggesting that Váchal's printing blocks were to be destroyed after its production. Sá ka 131. KVK, OCLC show the copies at the Austrian National Library, Penn State, and University of Illinois. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Baseball In The Big Leagues: A Book for Boys (in rare original dust jacket)

      Reilly & Britton, Chicago 1910 - Tan cloth lettered and with design of a baseball pitcher in wind up pose printed in red, black and grey. 308 pps. Illustrated with full page photographic plates. A fine, tight, bright example. In the rare original dust jacket with design duplicating that of the decorated cloth, some light rubbing to the panels, s short crinkeled tear top front panel and shallow wear at the spine extremities. The second edition, here retitled from the original "Touching Second". One of the keystone titles of early baseball, an anecdotal how-to from the Chicago Cubs second baseman and middle man of the famed "Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance" double play combination. Evers, known as "The Crab" as much for his personality (he was not on speaking terms with Mr. Tinker) as for his scuttling fielding style, was highly if grudingly repected by players of his era for his brainy "inside" style of play. The full page photo illustrations include Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson, teammate Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown and others. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

This title was first published in 1901 and had the same illustrations but in 'two-color' as opposed to the 'full-color' illustrations contained herein. Richard Riall discusses a copy that he had which had a presentation label dated 1913 but in which the plates were neither signed nor dated. Latimore & Haskell and Derek Hudson declare 1913 as the year of this book's first publication, yet the plates by Rackham are dated "1901." COPAC notes a copy and assigns "1902" as publication date but without explanation. OCLC notes a copy, "Printed by Blackie and Son Limited at the Villafield Press, Glasgow"-Cover./ Publisher's advertisement on p. [iv] of cover, for Hassall Nursery Series./ Binding: Pictorial boards with red cloth spine. Color illustration on cover of horse and dog," and assigns the date as 1913 (Riall notes this edition as 1904). We have seen another, similar undated edition in green cloth with a color illustration of dog and horse on laid to green cloth. And yet another edition, with pictorial boards similar to the copy under notice, in green cloth. In over fifty years of specializing in the works of Arthur Rackham this is only the second copy of the true first full-color edition that we have ever seen or heard of. Illustrations by Arthur Rackham: (by leaf signature): 1. L11 "Playful Puppies" (Full-page, full color) 2. L22 "Waiting for the Train" (Full-page, full color) 3.

        Famous Personalities from Montecarlo.

      [c. 1910] - Size: 725 x 515 mm. Mounted size 855 x 640 mm. Very good condition. Lithograph. Printed colour. Georges Goursat (1863-1934), known as Sem, attained a high level of success with his wonderful portrayals of Paris at the turn of the century. This outstanding caricaturist was a member of the Salon des Humoristes and an officer of the Legion of Honor. His works offer us glimpses into Parisian high society at the turn of the Century. Sem's unique talent made his work very identifiable, particularly because of the essential sobriety of his composition, in which his characters usually emerge from a white or plain background rather than being more obvious caricatures. Sem captured the spirit of the subject and in turn produced images that were true to life. This wonderful print is a brilliant example of Sem's series "Famous Personalities from Montecarlo", published in Paris c.1910.

        [Photo Album]: New England Vacations 1910-1925

      Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire. 1910. Oblong small quarto measuring 7" x 11". String-tied black leather over paper boards with "photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 174 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs, as well as 15 cyanotypes. All measuring between 1.5" x 1.5" and 3" x 5" with some captions. Album has some tears at the spine fold and edgewear thus very good with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a New England woman which documents trips with her family and friends, almost exclusively women, throughout the region between 1912 and 1928. Many of the early photos show women posing in nice dresses and hats with fans in summer gardens. Following this are photos from a camping trip to Fort Pond in Acton, Massachusetts. These include cyanotype prints of women on horseback and one of a woman in men's clothes smoking a pipe. That same woman is seen again in men's clothes next to a woman in a dress and the print has been cut into the shape of a heart, she's also seen later pulling up a woman's skirt to show her ankles. There are a few interior shots from what appear to be parties and social gatherings of ladies and their families smiling for the camera. One group of photos shows a 1914 road trip to Edgartown and Lambert's Cover in Martha's Vineyard. They took a trip to Marblehead to go fishing and generally seemed to enjoy the outdoors with many of the pictures showing them climbing trees, hiking, and going to beaches. A later trip to York Beach shows a woman happily holding a large catch of fish and posing romantically on rocks gazing out to sea. One section shows a winter trip to Dalton, Massachusetts and Lincoln, New Hampshire which includes skiing, sledding, and many images of the group walking with snow shoes. The final pages of the album focus mainly on a trip to Mount Washington and the White Mountains in New Hampshire. These photos show more outdoor excursions with the ladies taking burros to the top of Mount Willard and posing on the top of Mount Washington. The snapshots show the beauty of the New England region from its mountains to its beaches as captured by a group of young women.A large collection of images depicting outdoorsy women enjoying a variety of activities from 1912 until 1928. .
