        Autograph Letter regarding the publication of Brigg Fair

      1910. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Scarce ALS, one page on a 3.5 x 5.5 postcard, January 8, 1910. Letter to music critic Edwin Evans. In part: "Briggfair is being published by Leuckart and no doubt on application they will let you have a proof copy for analysis. It might also be wise for you to consult Mr. Beecham's programmes." Addressed on the reverse in Delius's hand. In fine condition, with light handling wear. The conductor Thomas Beecham played a major part in bringing Delius to prominence by performing his work.  During the last 12 years of his life Delius's wife Jelka wrote almost all his letters.  Autograph material, especially of musical content, from the hand of the influential English composer are very rare."Brigg Fair" is an English folk song, best known in a choral arrangement by Percy Grainger. In 1907, Delius heard the setting and was impressed by both the tune and the arrangement, and, with Grainger's permission, used the song as the basis of an orchestral work.  First performed in 1908 and subtitled 'An English Rhapsody,' Delius's work treats the tune to a series of variations, encompassing lilting rhythmic dances, funereal marches, gently pastoral moments and full grand statements. One of Delius's most original and distinctive works, a peaceful introduction and several Romantic linking passages give the work its rhapsodic character.

        Portraitphotographie mit eigenh. Widmung und U. Wien, 1910.

      1910. 170 x 110 mm. Ganzfigürliche Darstellung im Rollenkostüm von einem russischen Photographen. Auf der Bildseite signiert und einem Herrn Ferdinand Graf gewidmet. - Der aus Rom gebürtige Baritonsänger war u. a. am Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, am Teatro Pedro II. in Rio de Janeiro, am Teatro São José in São Paulo und an der Covent Garden Opera in London zu hören. "1892 wirkte er bei der Uraufführung der Oper ‚I Rantzau' von Pietro Mascagni mit. Jules Massenet schrieb für Battistini die Titelpartie seiner Oper ‚Werther' für Bariton um. Auch Giuseppe Verdi schätzte den Sänger sehr. Es kam jedoch zu einer Mißstimmung zwischen den beiden Künstlern, als Battistini die Hauptrolle in Verdis ‚Falstaff' ablehnte. Richard Wagner erklärte Battistinis Interpretation der Arie ‚O du mein holder Abendstern' aus der Oper ‚Tannhäuser' zu seiner Lieblingsversion. Battistini gilt als eine der herausragenden Sängerpersönlichkeiten seiner Zeit" (Wikipedia).

      London, Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd., No. 970, circa 1910.. FIRST EDITION circa 1910, 6 panel panorama of thick board pages hinged with red cloth, colour printed both sides, a separate story on each side, both illustrated by Wain, brief caption below each picture, all dressed kittens, page size 235 x 180 mm, 9¼ x 7 inches. LACKING COVER BOARD PAGE WITH TITLES (i.e. 5 of 6 panels only). The images for Three Little Kittens were re-used in a painting book issued about the same time by Tuck with the No. 4063. The story on the reverse is a cats version of 5 Struwwelpeter stories: Fidgety Philip on the floor under the table cloth; the three kittens inked by Agrippa cat for mocking the Blackamoor; John who never looked where he was going and almost drowned in a stream; a version of the Huntsman where a hare with a rifle shoots at 2 cats; finally, a kitten disobeys his mother and sucks his thumb but with no nasty consequences. A Louis Wain cat version of Struwwelpeter was published by Tuck circa 1905 entitled Fidgety Phil and Other Tales, in the Little Pets series, with 16 pages including covers and with verses by Norman Gale. Hinges slightly worn with some small splits, a few very minor marks to some pages and some hinges, small closed tear to surface paper at edge of 1 image (we have found our mittens), neatly repaired with no loss, barely visible. A good defective copy of a rare book (lacking 1 board page). Neither the Three Little Kitten Painting Book nor our Panorama, nor Fidgety Phil are listed in the bibliography in the reissue of the Dale book on Wain. The painting book is not uncommon but we could not find a record of our panorama. Fidgety Phil is listed in Baumgartner Volume 1, page 24, No.29 and 1 copy is recorded in Liverpool University Library and 1 in Toronto Public Library but not in the Osborne catalogue.

        Decorative leathers applied to modern furniture.

      Amsterdam, J. Brandt & Zoon, ca. 1910-1916. Folio (37.0 x 30.0 cm.). With 36 original photographs of furniture leather crafting such as, chairs, clocks and smoking stands, each with a handwritten caption, on 34 leaves. Original full leather, with gilt title and vignette on the front board. Marbled endpapers.= J. Brandt & Zoon was an Amsterdam based bookbinder and paper wholesaler, active from 1742 until the mid-20th century, when it merged with P. Proost & Zoon, another Amsterdam firm, founded in 1842. The present volume is apparently a display of their craftsmanship, as it is meticulously bound and gilted. It contains 33 framed photographs of contemporary decorative furniture, all in a style transitional between Jugendstil, or Art Nouveau, and Art Deco. Many items show the characteristic ornamentation of the "Amsterdamse School", a mainly architectonical art movement characterized by the profuse use of ornaments, chiefly inspired by nature and by Indonesian art. Buildings and interiors in typical Amsterdamse School style were made between 1912 and 1925. What we see here are early examples, in which the use of fluent, curved lines - more typical for Art Nouveau, are still present. A few boards in the rear removed. Firm stamp on front flyleaf verso. A unique item in a very good state.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. München, 6. IV. 1910.

      1910. 7¼ SS. auf 2 Doppelbll. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Mein heutiger Brief möchte Sie bitten, für eine neue Kunst Ihre bewährte kritische Feder in Bewegung zu setzen, die jetzt das das erste Stadium der Reife hinter sich hat und Herrn Professor F. Klose, dem ich einiges vorgetragen, vollständig überzeugte, sodass er ein Empfehlungsschreiben direkt an den Ausschuss des Allg. D. Musikvereins sandte". Dieser allerdings habe die "von mir gesandten exot[ischen] Lieder mit einem stereotypen gedruckten Ablehnungsschreiben" an ihn zurückgesandt, was ihm um so eigentümlicher vorkomme, da man seine "Moschee von Cordoba" angenommen habe. Im folgenden dann um die von ihm "mehrfach revidierten Sammlungen" von japanischen Liedern, um die es in seinem Brief geht: "Sehr interessant dürfte sich ein Vergleich mit Weingartners Japanischen Liedern (2 Hefte, Breitkopf & Härtel) gestalten, denen auch Enderling'sche Texte zu grunde gelegt sind (ich hatte Weingartner damals auf die Schönheit dieser Gedichte hingewiesen) [...]". - Georg Capellen war als Musikkritiker und Komponist in Osnabrück tätig und lebte später in Köln, München und Hannover. "Dort lieferte er seit 1922 als Musikreferent Beiträge für die 'Niederdeutsche Zeitung'. Wissenschaftlich beschäftigte er sich u. a. mit Richard Wagner, mit fernöstlicher Musik und mit Fragen der Stimmführung ('Die Freiheit oder Unfreiheit der Töne und Intervalle als Kriterium der Stimmführung', 1904). Capellen komponierte Lieder und bearbeitete traditionelle Musik japanischer Herkunft" (DBE).

        Autograph signed letter.

      One and half pages on a single leaf. Victoria Street, London; 26th February 1910; 4to. On British Antarctic Expedition, 1910 stationery. Written in the year he commanded his second Antarctic expedition, this letter begins with the word "Private" penned boldly above the greeting. He declines an invitation "I hope you will forgive me for writing to you candidly on this subject. My time is fully occupied and beyond the preparation for my expedition my whole effort has to be devoted to completing funds." Unlike the Discovery expedition, where fund raising was handled by the Royal Society and the Royal Geographical Society, the Terra Nova Expedition was organised as a private venture without significant institutional support. Scott estimated the total cost at £40,000 (£3 million at 2009 values), half of which was eventually met by a government grant. The balance was raised by public subscription and loans. The fund raising task was largely carried out by Scott, and was a considerable drain on his time and energy, continuing in South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand after Terra Nova had sailed from British waters. The letter goes on "I have made an appeal to City Companies which has only been responded to in 3 cases and it would be a waste of my time to attend a dinner without the hope of obtaining help for my enterprise." A fascinating letter with a number of crossings out and obviously written in haste reflecting the strain Scott was under to raise funds for his final expedition to the Antarctic from which he would never return. Very good, folds, a number of short tears to right margin and corners reinforced.
