      [New York]:. 1910 - 1944.. Thick oblong format: "10-1/4" x 13-1/4" x 5". Ca. 1910 - 1944. Unpaginated, though 346 pp.. Contemporary flexible embossed black calf post binder, gilt "Photographs" lettered to front cover, along with title of "New York State" in white ink to front cover, nickel-plate posts at gutter margin.. Minor edgewear with some rubbing and chipping to both album and. leaves. Some lifting to the photos, many of the leaves have wear to. fore-edges. 1 of the nickel posts has snapped due to the weight of. the textblock, a few leaves detached. Withal, a G+/VG remarkable. album.. A massive photo album brimming with over 1100 images of street cars, trolleys, motor cars, locomotives, service trains, interurban railway lines, and railroads across New York from the 1890s up to WWII. With neatly handwritten captions, photographer's notes often on verso, and even some typed text. The compiler has traced the development of the New York transit system before WWII, including many short lines, and trolley lines that have become defunct, and most absorbed into the modern New York railway system. This tremendous photograph album supplies one of the most lavishly illustrated visual archives of New York Interurban Railways, Street Cars, Trolleys, and the development of mass transit in the Northeastern United States before WWII we have ever seen. Included within the album are images of over 60 different Interurban lines, Trolley Lines, and Short Line railways, including the Albany Southern RR, Albany & Hudson Railway, Batavia Traction Co. (operated 1914-1927), Bennington & Hoosik Valley Railway Co. (1989-1927), the Coney Island and Brooklyn Railroad which was the first railroad of any kind to reach Coney Island, and after 1923 became part of the Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit Corporation, along with the Brooklyn & Manhattan Transit, Brooklyn & Queens Traction Co., and the Brooklyn Rapid Transit. In addition, there are substantial sections devoted to the Empire State Railroad, the Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville RR - significant for showing the ultra modern art deco Bullet interurban cars acquired in 1932 to boost ridership; the Schenectady Railway Company which connected Schenectady -Albany -Troy -Saratoga and was one of the most extensive trolley lines in the Northeastern US; as well as the New York Elevated Railroad, the New York Railways Co., which operated trolleys and streetcars from 1911 until 1925 when their lines were replaced with buses, the Rochester & eastern Rapid Railway which operated from 1901 until 1930 when the line was dismantled; the Steinway Lines Co., which began as the Steinway Railway Company and would become part of the New York & Queens County Railway until 1932 when it broke free and operated as a trolley line until 1939 when they were replaced with buses. This album is filled with trolleys, electric trolleys, electric motor cars, and electric locomotives which were built by numerous different companies including J. M. Jones & Sons Interurban Car Builders, Wason Manufacturing Co., Jackson-Sharp Manufacturing, Baldwin-Westinghouse, Sheffield Car Co., and many others. The photographers stamps on the versos of some images include Howard Humes of Balston Spa, NY, Fred Abele of Albany, NY, Charles A. Brown of Chicago, IL, and many others. The photos provide a vivid picture of New York in the first part of the 20th century depicting the advertising signage, the architecture, fashions, civic movements, the impact of Pearl Harbor with trolleys outfitted to look like Navy Recruiting posts, and much more. Of particular interest are many of the images showing abandoned trolleys and motor cars in wrecking yards, sideyards, others showing accident damage from being hit by trucks, some being sold at auction, and others being burned for scrap as much of the Interurban system was being scrapped for buses at the outbreak of World War II. . 1,111 real photographs tipped-in to thick black paper, mounted with corners. Two colored postcards, 2 maps, 1 large folding brochure for the Jamestown, Westfield & Northwestern Railway (many with photographers notes stamped in ink, many in pencil), including some copy photos from magazines, newspapers, and trade magazines, ranging in size from 2-1/4" x 3-1/4" all the way up to 9" x 11", including many panoramic photos and even some real photo postcards.

      Milwaukee: Riverside Print Co., [circa 1910]. - Chromolithographic poster, 55 x 20 inches. Old folds and creases. Two small chips in the edges, one of them touching the edge of the border. Very good. Framed and matted. Not examined out of frame. An attractive, colorful, and action-filled poster for one of the many "Wild West" shows that were formed in the wake of Buffalo Bill Cody's success. The Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West Show was formed around 1910 and produced shows filled with spectacle, as evidenced by this poster. The bottom half of the poster is dominated by a Catlinesque image of "The Real Indian War Dance," as braves in headdresses and breastplates dance around a camp fire. A full moon illuminates the night sky, and a number of teepees are visible in the background. A large illustration in the upper half shows a number of Indians on horseback playing "equestrian foot ball," while others show fancily dressed Anglo women on horseback, as well as a camel race with riders dressed in quasi-Bedouin garb. An attractive poster for a little- remembered Wild West show and a fine example of the "West (and Near East) of the Imagination."

Creases and closed tears. 6 x 3-inch portion in right edge in facsimile (including the letter "T" in "WEST"). Quite attractive on the whole and in about very good condition. Framed and matted. Not examined out of frame. An attractive, colorful, and action-filled poster for one of the many "Wild West" shows that were formed in the wake of Buffalo Bill Cody's success. The Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West Show was formed around 1910 and produced shows filled with spectacle, as evidenced by this poster, which promises a show "unparalleled in daring and desperate deeds" and also "history blended with pleasant instruction for all the people of the land." In the upper portion of the poster is a scene of a man - armed only with a knife - battling a charging bull, advertised as "the real Mexican steer contest throwing lassoing & riding the bull." In the background is an illustration of man with one foot on a galloping horse and the other foot on a charging bull. Other illustrations show "home life of the American Indian," Indians bearing rifles riding horses, a woman brandishing a whip and riding a buffalo, the "Royal Mexican Guard" on a line of horses, and a "a Congress of American Cowgirls." An attractive poster for a little-remembered Wild West show, and a fine example of the "West of the Imagination."

        Mafarka il futurista

      Milan: Edizioni Futuriste di "Poesia",, 1910. Romanzo. Traduzione dal Francese di Decio Cinti. Octavo. Original orange printed wrappers. Spine lightly toned, slightly rolled and a little creased. An excellent copy of this fragile publication. First Italian edition of Marinetti's uncommon first novel, translated by his personal secretary. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed flamboyantly on the front free endpaper: "al caro e intelligentissimo amico dei futuristi, Koltonski" ("to the dear and intelligent friend of the Futurists, Koltonski"), and accompanied by a Futuristic lightning sketch of "Futuris Marinetti" pricking the sagging bubble of "Passatismo" (Traditionalism). A significant association: "Aleksander Koltonski [(1882-1964) Polish writer and translator], who was a resident in Italy and can be considered a protagonist in popularizing Futurism in Poland, issued a summary of the manifestos on Futurist music by Francesco Balilla Pratella and Luigi Russolo. Koltonski was clearly familiar with the collection I manifesti del futurismo. Prima serie (1914) and demonstrated his extensive knowledge in a groundbreaking article, entitled On Futurism as a Cultural and Artistic Movement, which also included an excerpt from Mariinetti's Zang Tumb Tumb... Koltonski emphasized the importance of Futurism for the political-cultural development of Italy, the innovatory character of its aesthetics, and the movement's fertilizing effect on life and art" (Przemyslaw Strozek, "Marinetti is foreign to us": Polish Responses to Italian Futurism in International Yearbook of Futurism Studies, 2011, volume I p. 89). Originally published in French (Paris: Sansot, 1909) as Mafarka le futuriste: roman africain. There would appear to be a number of issues of this first Italian edition: our copy (and others noted in OCLC) have "10o migliaio" (or "10th thousand") printed on the front cover; Copac notes a copy (Leeds University) with "11th thousand" and we know of a copy calling itself "6th thousand". These are all generally regarded as fictional. Mafarka, set in an imaginary African country, brought Marinetti to trial for obscenity. He was acquitted and the furore helped to put Futurism on the cultural map. Koltonski has made two neat inscriptions in Polish that appear to touch on the trial, saying that the book was "confiscated on moral grounds". .

        Carteggio costituito da quattordici lettere autografe firmate del Generale italiano, Intendente Generale nella Campagna italo - turca che partecipò alla guerra italo - austriaca. Comandante della Terza Brigata Alpini dislocata da oriente del Lago di Garda alla Val Lagarina e alla dorsale Carega - Zugna. Era membro della Loggia "Rienzi" di Roma. Le missive, datate tra il 1910 e il 1916 sono indirizzate all'Avvocato Giuseppe Leti e sono di notevole interesse storico. E' unita un'ampia ed interessante memoria manoscritta autografa in cui riassume la propria carriera militare a partire dalla nomina a "Intendente del Corpo di spedizione della Libia" nel 1911. Otto pagine in - 4. Di particolare importanza la lettera del l'11 luglio 1915 che contiene lo sfogo di Gazzola relativamente ad un suo ricorso militare in atto. "Come vede nell'intestazione, ora comando una divisione e aggiungo che sono tenente generale. Constata questo fatto che avvenne dopo un anno di guerra e dopo un numero veramente eccezionale di eliminazioni di generali, e dovrai convenire che ho diritto di essere dirò cosà soddisfatto. Per lo meno non ho fatto male. Ciò premesso, mi premerebbe molto che fosse discusso il mio riscorso al consiglio di Stato, perché sono quasi certo che, accolto il ricorso, io sarei ripristinato nei ruoli dell'esercito attivo. Il ricorso è stato presentato fino dal dicembre 1914, la domanda per la fissazione delle discussioni è stata fatta in giugno o luglio 1915, ma finora non se n'è fatto nulla. Ricorsi militari non se ne vogliono discutere durante la guerra per non dar noia al Ministero. Che idiotismo! Il Ministro se ne frega dei ricorsi ai quali rispondono i rappresentanti legali che pure se ne fregano...". E' accluso un estratto a stampa intitolato Il Generale Imerio Gazzola tratto dalla Nuova Antologia del 1918, autore Vincenzo Riccio di cui compare la dedica autografa firmata al margine superiore. Sei pagine in - 8.

        The Inmates Of An Asylum

      n.p: n.p, n.d. 12 silver gelatin photographs, paper size 3 and 3/8 inches by 4 and 1/4 inches, image size 3 and 1/2 inches by 4 and 1/2 inches, with slight variations in paper and border sizes throughout the group. No date, circa 1910-1920. In generally very good or better condition, with a few photographs showing slight creasing, surface imperfections, printing blemishes, but inconspicuous and nothing to detract from the imagery itself. A collection of photographs depicting what appear to be inmates at a turn of the century insane asylum, as such institutions were then called. One subject is identified, his name written (in pencil) on the back of the photograph; he is also the only subject to be twice photographed. When found, the photographs were accompanied by a pamphlet (not pictured) entitled "Mental Disturbances Observed in a General Hospital," written by the Chicago physician George Hall, M.D. (Columbus, OH; Ohio State Medical Journal; 1926), but it is impossible to know if this is an original pairing. There are some clues in determining the reason for and nature of this collection; one subject wears a jacket with intials stenciled above the breast pocket, but the initals are faint and partially obscured; other subjects are dressed in uniform clothing, suggestive of an institutional setting. Medical curtaining screens can be seen in the background of two photographs. Most revealing, however, are the facial expressions and body language of the subjects: they, like us, seem to know there's something wrong, but they, and again us, can't really know what it is. Uncommon as a collection, to state the obvious.

        Traite de mecanique celeste.

      Complete with folding plate in Volume 4, all half titles and errata; with an extra errata leaf in Volume 4, uncalled for by Horblit. Volumes I and II printed on paper watermarked ?Mecanique Celeste.? In prize half calf, gilt arms of Glasgow University, spines elaborately gilt with morocco labels. With prize bookplate awarding this copy to George Johnson in the class of physics, April 1910. Johnson (b.1889) was a navel architect who graduated in 1912. During World War I he worked on the battle - cruiser Renown and submarines for the Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Co. A fine set. pp. First edition, first issue, first state of the author?s monumental work in which all the laws of planetary motion are deduced from the concept of universal gravity. It includes all supplements found lacking in many copies. Considered a sequel to Newton?s Principia, Laplace argues that the universe was really a great self - regulating machine and that the whole solar system could continue on its existing plan for an immense period of time. This was a great step forward from the Newtonian uncertainties in this area. He also offered a brilliant explanation of the secular inequalities of the mean motion of the moon about the earth, a problem which Euler and Lagrange had failed to solve. This work also contains Laplace's fundamental contribution to the subject of capillarity in which he showed for the first time that capillary phenomena could be explained by the assumption of forces between the ultimate particles of matter, varying inversely as a power higher than the square of the distance. Laplace (1749 - 1827), considered the Isaac Newton of France, was one of the most influential scientists in the fields of mathematics, celestial mechanics, and physics. He dedicated this major work to Bonaparte (Volume 3), who honored him with the title of Marquis. Dibner, 14; Horblit, 63; Norman, 1277; Printing & the Mind of Man, 252

        Manet and the Post-Impressionists: Nov. 8th to Jan. 15th, 1910-11. 10 A.M. to 6 P.M.

      Grafton Galleries, Ballantyne and Company, London 1910 - [6] pp 7-38 [39-40] A very good example of the catalogue published alongside what was 'arguably the most significant and the most controversial exhibition of paintings ever to be held in the UK'. The exhibition's organiser Roger Fry coined the phrase 'post impressionism' to describe the paintings listed within this publication which has been described as the 'Holy Grail among exhibition catalogues' and which introduced modernism to the British public. There are at least two issues of the imprint: this one has the 'Under Revision' notice (referring to the possibility of changes to the exhibited paintings) on the title page and also on the front wrapper. The printed buff paper wrappers are in much better condition than usually encountered with the backstrip present, both covers unmarked and in very good condition. There is only a light scratch to report on the upper cover and a 1x2mm chip along the top edge. Internally the text is complete as issued, unmarked and near fine. There are advertisements for the Medici Society, The Burlington Magazine and The Contemporary Art Society to the front endpapers with a monthly magazine, 'The Open Window', Pictures from the National Loan Exhibition, 1910 and the Medici Society prints advertised to the rear. Desmond MacCarthy's introductory essay is quite substantial, running from pp 7-13, and offering an early version of what has become the standard narrative of the emergence of the modern movement from late Cezanne and Gauguin via Picasso and Matisse. The paintings are listed by location from pages 17-38 with details where appropriate of owners. During its couple of months at the Grafton Galleries the exhibition polarised opinion and provoked extensive commentary. E M Forster wrote that 'Gauguin and Van Gogh were too much for me', and the exhibits by Van Gogh, Gauguin, Picasso and Matisse convinced many visitors that the whole exhibition was merely a hoax. It took Arnold Bennett to point out 'that London is infinitely too self-complacent even to suspect that it is London and not the exhibition which is making itself ridiculous.'

        Die Weltwanderer [Signed / Unterzeichnet 2X by Gjellerup and 2X by Brandes; Excellent Association Copy] [Verdens vandrerne; The World Travelers; The World Wanderer]

      Wilhelm Baensch, 1910, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fine, First editionA Fine copy of the first edition, first printing of this Karl Gjellerup novel in two volumes, in the Publisher's original tan linen flexible boards, SIGNED / UNTERZEICHNET TWICE BY KARL GJELLERUP (once on the half title of Volume 1 and once on the title page of Volume 2), ALSO SIGNED / UNTERZEICHNET TWICE BY GEORG BRANDES (once on each Volume's front free endpaper); AN EXCELLENT ASSOCIATION COPY (with the front board of Volume 2 showing a few quite small light stains to its lower portion, and a few stray marks to its yapped front edge). Scholar, Novelist, and Poet Karl Gjellerup was born in Denmark in 1857 and died in his adopted land of Germany in 1919, winning the 1917 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his varied and rich poetry, which is inspired by lofty ideals", sharing the Prize half-and-half with his fellow native Dane Henrik Pontoppidan. Early in his career, Gjellerup belonged to the naturalist school and was an enthusiastic supporter of the naturist movement and of the famed Danish Critic and Scholar Georg Brandes -- one of the most important and influential men in Literature from the 1870s through the early 20th Century and the primary theorist behind the breakthrough of naturalism in Scandinavia (typically referred to as the "Modernist Movement"), to whom the volumes herein described certainly belonged. Eventually, however, Gjellerup broke with the naturalists and became instead a romanticist author employing idealism in his work. In connection with the Prize presentation to Gjellerup, noted Swedish critic Sven Söderman cited the novel as Gjellerup's "last great work", noting that "with its half-Oriental, half-western moral, ... it contains beautiful details and holds our interest through a mysticism full of imagination as much as through the development of the action." In the Biographical information, which he prepared in connection with the Prize award, Gjellerup categorized "Die Weltwanderer" as being one of his Poetic novels --- such Poetic novels being "Der Pilger Kamanita" (1906) [The Pilgrim Kamanita], "Die Weltwanderer"(1910) [The World Traveller], "Der goldene Zweig" (1917) [The Golden Bough], and "Die Gottesfreunde" (1916) [The Friends of God]--- and stated that these Poetic novels "belong chiefly to German literature" and that they "...have found their true understanding and appreciation almost exclusively in Germany".The novel was published both in Germany (as "Die Weltwanderer") and in Denmark (as "Verdens vandrerne") in 1910. However, as Gjellerup, who married a German woman, himself cited the work by its German name, noted that it belonged primarily to German literature and found its true understanding and appreciation among the German people, and as he came to see himself much more as a German than as a Dane, the German edition is by far the more important of the two. [In fact, Gjellerup's receipt of the Prize was not celebrated in his Danish homeland as he was seen there to be primarily a German writer.] Signed copies of Gjellerup's works in any edition and in any translation are quite scarce. Our most recent review of the auction records revealed no signed copies of his works having come to auction.] A Fine ASSOCIATION COPY of the first, and most important, German edition, SIGNED / UNTERZEICHNET TWICE BY KARL GJELLERUP and ALSO SIGNED / UNTERZEICHNET TWICE BY GEORG BRANDES. A RARE AND NOTABLE SET INDEED.

        The People's Rights

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1910. First edition, only printing. Paperback. This is the first edition, first state of this striking, scarce, and fragile early collection of Churchill's speeches. In 1904, Churchill quit the Conservative Party and joined the Liberals, beginning a dynamic chapter in his political career that saw him champion progressive causes and be branded a traitor to his class. In 1910, when The People's Rights was published, Winston Churchill was a powerful political force and a member of the Cabinet. From December 3-11, 1909 Churchill was on the campaign trail on behalf of the Liberals. The People's Rights is a distillation of these nine days of speeches, criticizing the House of Lords (which had rejected the Liberal Government's budget, thus precipitating the campaign) and championing Free Trade, a graduated income tax, luxury tax, and surtaxes on unearned income. Churchill's efforts were not wasted; as a result of the election, the Liberals would achieve a slim majority and passage of their budget. The People's Rights was published in an exceptionally perishable form, in bright yellow-orange paper wraps (with a halftone photo of Churchill on the cover) and printed on cheap, pulp paper. Consequently few copies survive, and wear, losses, and general deterioration is common to those copies that endure. There are two states of this first and only printing. The first state features and Appendix and an Index (at pages 149-152), while the second replaces the Index with a second Appendix. Here is the desirable first edition, first state. Given the inherent fragility of the edition, this copy is in very good condition. The illustrated wraps remain bright and firmly attached. The front cover is notably complete, with only fractional loss to the corners and trivial edge wear. The rear cover shows a .5 x .75 inch loss at the lower left corner but is otherwise complete. The spine shows some loss at the heel to a maximum depth of .75 inch, minor chipping at the head, and an abrasion just above and partially impacting the price. All title, author, and publisher print remains intact and clearly legible. The contents are toned, as inevitable with the cheap pulp paper, but both less toned and less brittle than we often see. First state is confirmed by a single appendix, an index, and p.71 numbered '1'. We find no previous ownership marks. Light spotting appears confined to the half title, title, and final Index pages. The final Index page shows a 2 inch closed tear. An original folded four-page leaflet advertisement and order form titled "Trade List of The Daily Mail Sixpenny Novels" is laid in.

        Eingang zu einem Kloster in Morcole.

      - Aquarell, über Bleistift, auf festem Papier, rechts unten datiert und bezeichnet „1910 Morcole". 19,8:13,4 cm. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß von Fr. Ph. Schmöle. Morcole liegt im Tessin am Luganer See. Die Malerin und Zeichnerin Mathilde Schmöle war seit 1876 mit dem Frankfurter Kaufmann F.P. Schmöle (1844-1924) verheiratet, der 1904 seinen Beruf aufgab, um sich ganz dem Malen und Reisen zu widmen. Nach der Vita ihres Mannes, der sich 1872 ein Landhaus in Kronberg erbauen ließ und dort in Kontakt trat mit den örtlichen Malern, könnte sie mit diesem gemeinsam bis 1905 Studienfahrten in die nähere Umgebung Frankfurts, nach Wetzlar und Braunfels sowie zwischen 1905 und 1913 nach Belgien und Holland, an die deutsche Nordseeküste, nach Sylt, Helgoland, in die Schweiz und nach Norditalien unternommen haben. Sie malte Landschaften, Porträts und Genrebilder. In engem brieflichem Kontakt stand sie mit Berta Riehl, Ehefrau des Kulturhistorikers und Novellisten W.H. Riehl, dessen Tochter Helene Riehl (geb. 1850) eine Landschaftsmalerin wurde. Laut einer überlieferten schriftlichen Anmerkung der Künstlerin war sie in Weimar eine Schülerin des Malers und Radierers F. Preller d. Ä. (1804-1878).

        The People's Rights

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1910. First edition. Paperback. This is the best copy we have offered of the first edition of this striking, scarce, and fragile early collection of Churchill's speeches - a premium copy for collectors. In 1904, Churchill quit the Conservative Party and joined the Liberals, beginning a dynamic chapter in his political career that saw him champion progressive causes and be branded a traitor to his class. In 1910, when The People's Rights was published, Winston Churchill was a powerful political force and a member of the Cabinet.

Given the inherent fragility of the edition, this copy is in remarkably good condition - the most complete and best preserved wraps issue of the first edition that we have offered. The illustrated wraps remain complete, bright, and firmly attached, with only modest soiling. We note only fractional wear to extremities. The binding is square, with no lean and no visible signs that this copy has ever been read. The spine is likewise a stunning survivor, highly complete with only fractional loss at the spine ends. All spine print is complete and clearly legible and there is no discernible color shift between the covers and spine. The contents are toned, as inevitable with the cheap pulp paper, but both less toned and less brittle than is typical, with no dog-eared or chipped corners to the pages. We find no previous ownership marks. A touch of spotting appears confined to the half title and to the final few pages of the second Appendix at pages 149-152. The second Appendix and correct pagination at p.71 confirms that this impressive copy is the second state of the first printing.

        4 page handwritten, signed Fan letter reply from Lucy Maud Montgomery in 1910 to Clara Macirone, composer

      Cavendish, PEI: Lucy Maud Montgomery, 1910. . 1910 IS A VERY EARLY L.M. MONTGOMERY FAN LETTER REPLYLetter content: Cavendish, Prince Edward Island Canada Monday 31 January, 1910. To Clara [Clara Angela Macirone] Originally folded to 3" x 5" but now flat, 6-1/2 x 10-1/8 inches. Four pages, each page being 6-1/2 x 5 inches. Condition: Paper darkened and slightly stained, 3/4 inch closed tear on centre fold pages 2&4 and 1/2 inch closed tear on centre with pin hole on fold pages 1&3, text clear and complete. There is a stamp, perhaps a W, next to L. M. Montgomery signature. Otherwise noted above, in good condition. This is a charming letter from the hand of Lucy Maud Montgomery in reply to a warmly received from an 'elderly' fan. The letter is delightful in its innocence relaying tidbits of personal information regarding Lucy Maud Montgomery's home, her life with her Grandmother and her impressions of her own writing. This short 4 page letter is of particular interest as it was written just two short years into the beginning of her celebrated fame as an author. This letter is almost childlike in its simplicity and delight in hearing of a song that may have been written in her honour. It is also of note this letter was written prior to her leaving Cavendish, PEI, in 1911, the home of 'Green Gables. "It is and ever must be hallowed ground to me" ... so said Lucy Maud Montgomery of her Cavendish home where she lived most of the time from 1876 to 1911. Montgomery is pleased and "touched" that Clara [Clara Angela Macirone] liked her story. "When I wrote it I supposed that only young girls would like it; and I am so delighted to find that so many old people have enjoyed it too.  I live in a little Canadian country place, very much like the 'Avonlea' of my book. Life here is very quiet and simple, but I like it and find all in it that I could find anywhere I think. She briefly discusses her grandmother "with whom I live" and who came from England "and I always feel a 'homey' interest in your wonderful old land which I hope some day to visit. "  Do you know, I always find it a little difficult to read English handwriting. Its characteristics seem to be different from Canadian and American writing" which meant that she couldn't quite decipher what Clara meant by a word which might be 'dedicate", relating to "a song you had written to me". "If I am not mistaken I can only say that I should be most pleased and honored by such a delicate compliment. I found your programmes very interesting. I love music although I have no gift in that way myself. I think it is the most wonderful of the arts. [.]". Another hand has added brief notes in the margins of the final page, "Montgomery Anne of [?]" and a note of her name and the date of the letter.Clara Angela Macirone was a well know English pianist and composer who published her music as C. A. Macirone. Born in London, she was the daughter of Italian musicians; her mother was also a pianist and her father was a singer. After completing her studies at the Royal Academy of Music she took a position teaching at the Academy. She died in London, July 1914.

Neat ownership inscription and annotation at head and tail of front cover, general light signs of handling, overall in very good condition. First edition. "Schumpeter's broad interests in the social sciences and in the way these are related to each other was one of the factors that made him sympathetic to Weber's idea of a Sozialökonomik. That Schumpeter himself had a thorough knowledge of several different social sciences is clear from his studies of the tax state and imperialism as well as from his general writings on social science. Two of these more general writings deserve special attention, namely a pamphlet called Wie studiert man Sozialwissenschaft (How to Study Social Science, 1910) and a small book, entitled Vergangenheit und Zukunft der Socialwissenschaften (The History and Future of the Social Sciences, 1915). Both of these were published by the Academic Social Science Association in Czernowitz, in which Schumpeter was a very active member while he taught at the local university" (Richard Swedberg in Joseph A.

Text in French and Russian Extremely scarce catalogue of Russian lace, produced in Moscow just prior to WWI. Ours is the only copy currently on the market. * "In 1931, the Brooklyn Museum acquired a portion of the collection of 18th- and 19th-century Russian art assembled by Mme N.L. de Shabelsky" (R.A. Karlowich, A guide to scholarly resources on the Russian Empire, 1990, p. 26). * According to Alison Hilton, both Sidamon-Eristova and Shabelskaia were "major collectors" (SOURCE: Russian Folk Art, p. 323). "For some one hundred years now Russian folk embroideries have attracted closest notice. Towards the close of the 19th century several magnificent collections of such embroideries were assembled. Further, researches conducted by V. Stasov, S. Shakhovskaya, V. Sidamon-Eristova and N. Shabelskaya initiated the systematization and classification of the various types of ornamental designs in Russian folk embroidery. These same authors also made the first attempts to decipher the intricate narrative compositions so characteristic of folk tradition in Northern Russia. The surging interest in the folk arts and crafts caused a series of notable studies to be devoted to analysis of the narrative and symbolical content, the specific techniques and the regional dissimilarities of Russian folk embroidery. However, most authors concentrated on the anthropomorphic and zoomorphic representations and the archaic three-element compositions incorporating stylized and transmuted representations of, more often, female and, less often, male pre-Christian deities. It is this group of motifs that has always fascinated students. A somewhat specific group consists of the geometrized motifs of North Russian embroideries, which, as a rule, accompany the basic elaborated narrative compositions -- although frequently such motifs are exclusive in the decoration of towels, sashes, skirt hems, and shirt and blouse sleeves and shoulder yokes, which explains their importance for art historians" (SOURCE: S. Zharnikova, "Archaic Motifs in North Russian Folk Embroidery and Parallels in Ancient Ornamental Designs of the Eurasian Steppe Peoples"). * Of this work OCLC lists just 5 copies worldwide, and of these only 3 are in the U.S. (NYPL, Harvard, North Carolina). PROVENANCE: ink-stamps of the Zadruha (Prague), which was founded in 1900 for the "elevation of popular industry, especially the Arts.

        Über Konflikte der Kindlichen Seele (On Conflict in the Child's Soul).

      Franz Deuticke, Leipzig und Wien 1910 - Original front wrap [inscribed] +TP + [1]-26 + original rear wrap, Octavo. Inscribed First Edition Ofprint.1910 C.G. Jung Offprint Inscribed to Famed American Psychiatrist, Dr. Adolf Meyer. Inscribed along the top edge of the front wrap: "Dr. A. Meyer - Johns Hopkins University / with the author's / compliments." Carl Jung accompanied Sigmund Freud to the famous psychiatric convocation at Clark College, Worchester, Massachusetts in August of 1909, where he met Dr. Adolf Meyer who was regarded as the "dean of American psychiatrists." Both Freud and Jung, along with Adolf Meyer, were given honorary degrees by the College at the conclusion of their meetings. Meyer, one of America's preeminent psychiatrist, had just been appointed at Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University - a job that he held until 1941. Meyer was skeptical of many of Freud's theories (as was another participant, William James), but felt more in tune with the ideas being put forward by Jung. In the well-known group photo taken at that conference, Meyer stands confidently in the front row on Jung's immediate left. At the conference, Jung read this paper, On Conflict in the Child's Soul (along with one on diagnostic association experiments that he was then conducting) and inscribed a copy of this offprint to his new friend, Meyer, when it became available the following year. The two men met again in 1913 when Jung returned to American and delivered his Fordham lectures - talks presenting views that were no longer in agreement with much of Freud's basic theories and much more in line with the more pragmatic approaches being espoused in the United States by Meyer and James.In this paper, Jung discussed the conflicts in the mind of a child, using his own daughter as an example. The paper was reviewed in the Journal for Psychoanalysis by the then still-editor, Alfred Adler - who also had not yet made his complete break with Freud at this time. According to Adler's review, Jung's interpretations were astute as well as intelligently moderate. However, he described Jung's views as "strictly bound to the main threads of Freud's libido teachings," and offer his own emerging Adlerian analysis, focusing on the purpose of behavior and the use of emotion: "With all sorts of subterfuges, the child tries to gain security through fear and knowledge." Adler finished by noting that "analyses such as Jung's are the delectable gift of psychoanalysis. Their value lies not only in confirming questionable results, but also in opening new perspectives." A lovely offprint with an inscription carrying some significant association with the history of interactions between European and American psychiatrists in the early decades of the 20th century while simultaneously being a paper with an historical link to the Freud/Jung/Adler controversies that rent the psychoanalytic movement apart just before the First World War. The original wraps had obviously become detached at some time the past and have been skillfully reattached using a small (and well-matched) strip of spine material. Otherwise, a gorgeous inscribed association copy of this original offprint. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      . Bleistift, aquarelliert, auf gelblichem Velin, rechts unten bezeichnet und datiert "St. Goarshausen, 16.Oct.46.". 25,3:19,6 cm. Schwacher Fleck rechts unten. Provenienz: Aus dem Künstlernachlaß. Vergleichsliteratur: Fr.W. Alexander: Johann Georg Meyer von Bremen. Das Lebensbild eines deutschen Genremalers. Leipzig, E.A. Seemann, 1910, Abb. 12 und 13. Diese beiden Abbildungen zeigen vergleichbare Architekturskizzen aus Bacharach und Wellmich bei St. Goarshausen.. Georg Meyer von Bremen ging 1833 im Alter von 20 Jahren nach Düsseldorf, um an einer der geachtesten Kunstakademien des Landes zu studieren. Er wurde hier erst Schüler des Nazareners J. Wintergerst (1783-1867) und des Historienmalers K.F. Sohn (1805-1867), dann besuchte er die Meisterklasse wohl unter der Leitung des Akademiedirektors W. von Schadow (1788-1862). Seit 1841 war er in Düsseldorf als freischaffender Maler tätig. 1848 war er Gründungsmitglied des "Künstler-Verein Malkasten". Studienreisen durch Deutschland (Hessen und Bayern), nach Berchtesgaden, in das Salzkammergut und der Schweiz brachten die Hinwendung zu volkstümlichen Genrebildern, vor allem gemütvolle Familiendarstellungen und Szenen aus dem Kinderleben. Weitere Reisen führten ihn nach Brüssel und Antwerpen. 1850 erhielt er die Kleine Goldene Medaille. 1852 siedelte er nach Berlin über, wo er es nach wenigen Jahren zu großem, auch internationalem Erfolg brachte, vor allem bei den in die USA emigrierenden deutschen Auswanderern; zu seinen prominentesten Kunden zählten das russische Kaiserhaus und die preußische Königsfamilie. Zwei Jahre nach dem Umzug wurde er zum Professor an die Berliner Akademie berufen. 1855 wurde ihm der belgische Leopoldsorden überreicht, 1857 wurde er Mitglied der Academie des Arts in Amsterdam. Werke Meyer von Bremens besitzen u.a. das Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, das Metropolitan Museum New York, die Nationalgalerie Berlin, die Kunsthalle Bremen und das Stadtmuseum Danzig.

        Presidents I Have Seen and Known, Lincoln to Taft and A Day in Washington's Country

      Cleveland: The Penton Press 1910 - First edition. Illustrated with black and white plates of portraits of the presidents and with facsimile reproductions of their signatures. Limited edition of 150 numbered copies. Inscribed by Butler on the limitation page: "Presented to my friend / Mr Fred Gerny / with kindest thoughts / Jos G. Butler Jr. / Youngstown / Sept. 8 1913". Finely bound in full red morocco by Macdonald, with five raised bands to the spine, gilt florets to the boards and spine compartments, gilt decoration of a mouse holding a candle over a book with brown morocco onlay to the front board, ruled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, geometric gilt turn-ins, cream moiré cloth endpapers. About near fine, with minor toning to the spine, some light rubbing to the spine ends and hinges, spine lightly cracked and secure after the free endpapers, otherwise sturdy and intact binding, bright and clean pages. A handsome copy. Housed in a red moiré slipcase. In Presidents I Have Seen and Known, Joseph G. Butler reflects on his personal friendships and acquaintances with several U. S. Presidents since 1861. As a child, Butler moved to Ohio, where he attended primary school with future president William McKinley, the first of many presidential acquaintances; as an adult, Butler was a leading figure in the American steel industry and a philanthropist best remembered for founding the first museum of American art. He had occasion to meet with the political leaders he remembers in this volume: Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Ulysses S. Grant, James A. Garfield, Grover Cleveland, Chester A. Arthur, Benjamin Harrison, Theodore Roosevelt, and William H. Taft. In addition to Butler's memoirs, Presidents I Have Seen and Known includes "A Day in Washington's Country," which recounts the author's visits to the English locations from which George Washington's ancestors originated. Notably, this volume was published for Butler's friends after an address he delivered at the Rowfant Club of Cleveland on February 27, 1909. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
