Mythology can refer to the collected myths of a group of people?their collection of stories they tell to explain nature, history, and customs or to the study of such myths. As a collection of explanatory stories, mythology is a vital feature of every culture. Many sources for myths have been proposed, ranging from personification of nature or personification of natural phenomena, to truthful or hyperbolic accounts of historical events to explanations of existing rituals. Although the term is complicated by its implicit condescension, mythologizing is not just an ancient or primitive practice, as shown by contemporary mythopoeia such as urban legends and the expansive fictional mythoi created by fantasy novels and comics. A culture's collective mythology helps convey belonging, shared and religious experiences, behavioral models, and moral and practical lessons. The study of myth dates back to ancient history. Rival classes of the Greek myths by Euhemerus, Plato, and Sallustius were developed by the Neoplatonists, and later revived by Renaissance mythographers. The nineteenth-century comparative mythology reinterpreted myth as a primitive and failed counterpart of science (E. B. Tylor), a "disease of language" (Max Müller), or a misinterpretation of magical ritual (James Frazer). Recent approaches have rejected conflict between the value of myth and rational thought, often viewing myths as expressions to understand general psychological, cultural, or societal truths, rather than as inaccurate historical accounts. In modern society, myth is often regarded as historical or obsolete. Many scholars in the field of cultural studies are now beginning to research the idea that myth has worked itself into modern discourses. Modern formats of communication allow for widespread communication across the globe, thus enabling mythological discourse and exchange among greater audiences than ever before. Various elements of myth can now be found in television, cinema, and video games. (Wikipedia).

Locke notes that Trevena is "one of the better writers of his day." Ernest George Henham (b. 1870), a writer of regionalist fiction, published nineteen novels, most with West Country settings.

        SUZANNE VALADON - Lettre autographe signée

      - Lettre autographe signée à « sa chère et bien chère petite mignonne ». 3 janvier 1910 ; 2 pages in-8°. Rare et belle lettre de la célèbre peintre, mère d’Utrillo, répondant au vœux de nouvelle année à ce qui semble être un model dont le visage lui évoque la pureté de la peinture ancienne : « Combien doux fut le plaisir que vous me fîtes avec votre bonne pensée pour moi. J’ai souvent le souvenir de votre si gracieux visage de vierge du moyen âge s’estompant au millieu des peintures modernes ayant l’aire de les mettre dans l’impossibilité, ces peinturlures s’avancer devant cette simplicité de votre figure qui parle tout un passé d’art qui fut. Mais je suis à côté, toujours à côté du début de ma lettre, car cette fin était pour le commencement = les meilleurs, les plus purs de mes souhaits sont la réalisation de ce que peut désirer votre bon petit cœur. Je vous embrasse bien affectueusement, comme j’aurais aimé à embrasser une fillette à moi semblable à vous. Vous priant d’être ma gentille interprète auprès des vôtres pour leur porter mes vœux de bonheur et de santé. Votre bonne pette vieille ami » [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [AMERICAN COMMERCIAL DESIGN]. A large Archive of choice Promotional Ephemera for Mazda Automobile & Home Light Bulbs

      Mazda, 1910-1920. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. A collection of 59 pieces, including circular promotional tags, oblong tags, booklets, and cards. Each item is preserved in a mylar sleeve and protected by an ingeniously designed folding case which accommodates all three sizes of the ephemera here on offer. THE GOLDEN AGE OF AMERICAN ADVERTISING AND CORPORATE DESIGN. The "Mazda" brand name for its tungsten filament incandescent light bulb was trademarked by General Electric in 1909, and was used by GE and Westinghouse until 1945. The bulb was named for Ahura Mazda, the God of Zoroastrianism whose name means light of wisdom. The bulbs were marketed by emphasizing their predictable performance and long life expectancy for a wide variety of uses, including home lighting and car headlights. "GE also licensed the Mazda name, socket sizes, and tungsten filament technology to other manufacturers to establish a standard for lighting. Bulbs were soon sold by many manufacturers with the Mazda name attached, including British Thomson-Houston in the United Kingdom, Toshiba in Japan, and GE's chief competitor Westinghouse, which advertised their bulbs with paintings by Maxfield Parrish. In the 1925 Felix the Cat cartoon The Cat and the Kit, Mazda lamps are Felix's choice of car headlights. In the play The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams, after the rain knocks out the electricity, Amanda says: 'We'll just have to spend the remainder of the evening in the nineteenth century, before Mr. Edison made the Mazda lamp!' The Mazda light bulb is improbably mentioned in the 1952 Johnny Mercer song Glow Worm: 'You got a cute vest-pocket Mazda/Which you can make both slow and fazda'." Some pieces with minor soiling or wear. An extraordinary collection of unobtainable American commercial design ephemera.

        TREASURES OF TWO WORLDS : UNPUBLISHED LEGENDS AND TRADITIONS OF THE JEWISH NATION; Half-bound Leather

      Los Angeles, California: Max Cohn, 1910. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo. Red cloth-over-boards, with gilt lettering to front. Recently rebacked in deep-red Niger Morocco (small-grained goatskin leather), ruled in gilt, with 5 raised bands, and dual contrasting spine labels. Head and tail untrimmed. Offsetting to endpapers, small edge-tears and occasional spotting to preliminary pages. A strange and scarce compendium of little-known Jewish mystical lore. Chapter headings include: I: A History of Mysticism - The Mahatmas of The Essenes; II: The Wonder of the Original Mahatmas; III: Tales of Rabba Bar Barchana; IV: Ghost Stories of an Unknown Mahatma; V: Titus (Unkelos The Proselyte); VI: The Miserere; VII: Rabbi Ishmael; VIII: Spanish Spoilation, Or The Grand Inquisition; IX: French Frivolity; X: Jewish Trials in Germany; XI: Education and Talmud. This strange and scarce little book is packed withmystical legends, lore, tales and commentary of Jewish leaders, mystics, saints and luminaries, written in a lively, conversational tone. Despite his great breadth of religious, historical and folk-related knowledge, Imber detested all forms of high-minded intellectual snobbery. Indeed his reputation was more of akin to a hard-traveling street person with mystical leanings -- essentially a charming, iwandering poet-scholar whose restlessness took him throughout the east and Europe. Imber wrote the now-famous "HATIKVAH", described on title page as "The National Zionist song in Hebrew", but which has since become the national anthem for the State of Israel. He lived out his final years in America, regrettably as a life of dissipation and poverty, eventually dying of ailments related to his chronic alcoholism.

Mythology can refer to the collected myths of a group of people&#151;their collection of stories they tell to explain nature, history, and customs[1]&#151;or to the study of such myths.[2] As a collection of explanatory stories, mythology is a vital feature of every culture. Many sources for myths have been proposed, ranging from personification of nature or personification of natural phenomena, to truthful or hyperbolic accounts of historical events to explanations of existing rituals. Although the term is complicated by its implicit condescension, mythologizing is not just an ancient or primitive practice, as shown by contemporary mythopoeia such as urban legends and the expansive fictional mythoi created by fantasy novels and comics. A culture's collective mythology helps convey belonging, shared and religious experiences, behavioral models, and moral and practical lessons. The study of myth dates back to ancient history. Rival classes of the Greek myths by Euhemerus, Plato, and Sallustius were developed by the Neoplatonists, and later revived by Renaissance mythographers. The nineteenth-century comparative mythology reinterpreted myth as a primitive and failed counterpart of science (E. B. Tylor), a "disease of language" (Max Müller), or a misinterpretation of magical ritual (James Frazer). Recent approaches have rejected conflict between the value of myth and rational thought, often viewing myths as expressions to understand general psychological, cultural, or societal truths, rather than as inaccurate historical accounts. In modern society, myth is often regarded as historical or obsolete. Many scholars in the field of cultural studies are now beginning to research the idea that myth has worked itself into modern discourses. Modern formats of communication allow for widespread communication across the globe, thus enabling mythological discourse and exchange among greater audiences than ever before. Various elements of myth can now be found in television, cinema, and video games. (Wikipedia).

        A set of eight pictorial advertising cards for cigarettes]. Ca 1910.

      1910 1910 - A rare collection of eight cigarette cards (each 13.5 x 20.2 cm) decorated with colourful scenes from old Chinese tales. Text in Chinese on the reverse. The set comprises four "Pin Head" cigarette cards issued by the American Tobacco Company; three "Pirate" cards issued by the British company W.D. & H.O. Wills; and one "Peacock" card by the Japanese based Murai Brothers Tobacco Co. Cigarette cards were introduced in the latter part of the 19th century when the manufacturers inserted cards into paper cigarette packages in order to stiffen the packaging. Due to competition the suppliers began to decorate the cards to promote their brands, and eventually these cards became collectables.

        Principia Mathematica

      Cambridge: at the University Press,, 1910?12?13. 3 volumes, large octavo. Original dark blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, cream endpapers. With the authors' compliments slip laid in. Some trivial wear to spine ends and tips of vol. I, a little mottling and rubbing to gilt at foot of spines, remains of bookplate removal to endpapers, front hinge of vol. I cracked but holding and small tear to rear hinge, internally fresh. A superb set. First editions. This is the complete set of the Principia Mathematica, decidedly rare. Vol. I was printed in 750 copies and, due to the disappointing sales, the publishers reduced the printings of Vols. II and III to 500 copies each, so that only 500 complete sets in first edition are possible. In this work, Whitehead and Russell attempted to construct "the whole body of mathematical doctrine by logical deduction from the basis of a small number of primitive ideas and a small number of primitive principles of logical inference" (DSB, XII, p. 14). The belief that mathematics can be derived from logic is not only one of the principal philosophical theories of the foundation of mathematics, it has also provided some of the most important results in the formal analysis of mathematical concepts (cf. Frege, Peano). This belief found its fullest expression in Principia Mathematica. A fourth volume, dealing with the applications to geometry, was planned but never finished, as both men turned their attention away from mathematics and towards philosophy.

        New York.

      London & New York: Duckworth & Co; Brentano's,, [1910]. With a foreword by H. G. Wells. Folio. Original calf-backed grey boards, titles to front board gilt. With the dust jacket. With 20 photogravure plates hand-pulled by Coburn mounted on grey heavy stock marbled paper. Jacket and binding professionally refurbished, jacket spine toned and with a few old wax stains to front panel, touch of foxing internally. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, with the rare dust jacket: a remarkable survival, we have traced just two copies at auction since 1975. Coburn's New York is one of the cornerstone photobooks of the 20th century and considerably more scarce than the photographer's groundbreaking sister publication, London, put out in the same format in 1909. "Of the two books, it is the New York volume that might be considered the more proto-modernist in spirit, not only because New York itself was the most palpably modern city, epitomized by that great leitmotif of early modernist photography, the skyscraper, but also because the form of the city, as created by these large, monolithic buildings, pushed Coburn towards a more radical way of seeing" (Parr & Badger).

        Das Weltmeer. Wellen der Hochsee und Brandung.

      c. 1910-20. 2 volumes, elephant folio (900 x 700 mm). Original natural canvas over bevelled boards, with cloth ties, covers titled "I [& II] Das Weltmeer. Wellen der Hochsee und Brandung. Franz Graf von Larisch Moennich". 21 photographic prints (ranging in height from 410?490 mm & in width from 605?715 mm) all mounted on heavy stock board (overall uniform size 850 x 700 mm), plus eight unmounted photographic prints (several duplicating the mounted plates). From the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria. In excellent condition. A unique collection of large-scale prints of imposing images of ocean waves and breakers, photographed from ship and shoreline by Count Franz Joseph Larisch von Moennich (1878-1937). The title, Wellen der Hochsee und Brandung, literally means "waves in the high seas and surf". Larisch was at the forefront of scientific investigation into the interaction of winds and ocean waves and his Sturmsee und Brandung (Bielefeld & Leipzig: 1925; second edition 1926) was an important contribution to this branch of oceanography. He made early observations on wave variation and the phenomena of surf caused by waves breaking on different coasts. A number of the photographs in these portfolios were reproduced in a greatly reduced size for Sturmsee und Brandung. In the preface Larisch wrote that: "part of physical oceanography which is concerned with the aspects of the sea's motion has been the focus of my researches these past 20 years, in particular the wave movements occasioned by wind. The pictorial documentation of this phenomenon was gathered on numerous trips by steam and sail on the Seven Seas, and during lengthy sojourns on their coasts; the photographic archive prepared at that time is intended to systematically illustrate the manifold appearances of ocean waves... The motion of the ocean waves deserves special attention. It represents the sea's ultimate magic, its very life. And within this manifestation, we discover a process of infinite diversity whose genesis and progress presents a series of highly entertaining problems". A contemporary reviewer referred to the way in which Larisch's photography had captured "the spirit of the restless waters in their varied moods... picturing the sea in play and in anger throughout the world" (Geographical Review, vol. 17, no. 1, January 1927). Another work published, probably, in the 1920s was Das Weltmeer: 26 Naturaufnahmen (Berlin: Werckmeisters Kunstverlag) which contained 26 photographs; this reproduced only a few photographs from the present portfolios and in a much-reduced format; the only known copy is at the California State Library in Sacramento. These images were again reproduced in 1940, in a publication entitled Wind, Wetter und Wellen auf dem Weltmeere (Wind, Weather, and Waves on the High Seas); and their aesthetic and scientific significance have been noted by the German historian of photography Almut Klingbeil: "In his empathetic observation of the various manifestations of nature - in this case the ocean waves presented in a photographic wave atlas - he was guided by the aesthetic demands of art photography. Larisch continued to prepare elaborate prints of his photographs, measuring 60 x 85 cm, after the end of World War I. This however did not preclude his collection of wave photographs being used for the study of ocean-wave formations in the early 1920s" (Die Bilder wechseln: Meereslandschaften in deutschen Fotobüchern der 20er bis 40er Jahre, 2000, p. 29). Two of the loose prints carry manuscript notes in Larisch's hand (one is signed by him) and reflect the scientific aspect of his work: time, date, wind speed and co-ordinates are given and a brief statement on the nature of waves and breakers; one (dated 11 February 1909) is of a great sea swell south of "Staaten Island" - presumably Staten Island, New York. The other (dated 2 February 1914) is of breakers north of "Kettle Rock", off Tresco, the second largest of the Isles of Scilly. Larisch von Moennich was born at Dolni Zivotice (Schönstein), a castle near Opava (Troppau) in Moravia, close to the Silesian border. He was the son of Count Georg von Larisch-Moennich and Baroness Marie Louise Elisabeth von Wallersee, the illegitimate daughter of Duke Ludwig of Bavaria. After studying medicine, Larisch went to sea, travelled to England and America, and began to study oceanography. In 1901, he married Marie Saunderson, the daughter of an oilman from Titusville, Pennsylvania but they divorced in 1909. From 1908 onwards, Larisch undertook a total of sixteen sea voyages on a freelance basis with the Berlin Oceanographic Institute to further his study of wave formations and the important work of the Berlin scientists is the subject of Chapter 5 of Eric L. Mill's recent book The Fluid Envelope of our Planet: How the Study of Ocean Currents Became a Science (2009). Larisch died at Tegernheim near Regensburg in Bavaria. A wonderful collection of photographs, by turn impressive and haunting, reflecting heightened scientific interest in oceanography and concurring with the dramatic Expressionist seascapes of Emil Nolde.

        Photograph Album with Images taken at an annual meeting of the New England Fat Mens Club

      Hale's Tavern, Wells River, Vermont, 1910. Cardboard covers. Very good. This cardstock album contains ten pages, each with a glue-mounted photograph (most 4.5" x 6.5"). The front cover features cartoon-illustrated index. Probably provided to attendees after the event. Photos show Hale's Tavern, J. F. Hale, the dinner, members, the president, a hat-kicking contest, a foot race, a wheel-barrow race, a tug-of-war, and F. P. Sibley's presentation of a loving cup. Fat mens clubs were one genre of the fun-loving, self-deprecating, fraternal organizations that flourished from the mid-1800s to the beginning of the 1920s. The New England Fat Mens Club was founded in 1903 by J. F. Hale, and at the height of its popularity claimed 10,000 official and honorary members, although no more than 75 ever attended one of its annual meetings. The meetings began with a weigh-in (members had to weigh at least 200 pounds), which was followed by a series of hilarious athletic events. "Once the games were over, the men got ready for the main event . . . In the hotel dining room, Hale had thoughtfully scalloped the edges of the tables so his guests could sit in comfort as they bellied up for meals. . . . One nine course menu included oyster cocktail, cream of chicken soup, boiled snapper, fillet of beef with mushrooms, roast chicken, roast suckling pig, shrimp salad, steamed fruit pudding with brandy sauce, assorted cakes, cheeses and ice cream followed by coffee and cigars. The evening was laced with large portions of wit, sarcasm and roaring laughter." (See "The New England Fat Mens Club" in Upper Valley Life, Tafrate, 2008. The photographer, F. P. Shibley, was employed by the Boston Globe and "admitted to membership on perpendicular measurements only;" he was 6'4" tall and weighed 160 pounds. Scarce. None in the trade, and none listed at OCLC although one example is likely in the collection of the New England Historical Society. None listed at ABPC, Rare Book Hub, or Worthpoint, although a single image of the president of the New York Fat Mens Club sold at auction in 2014.
