        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. 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. 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.

        Wie studiert man Sozialwissenschaft

      Czernowitz: Im kommissionsverlag der K. K. universitätsbuchhandlung H. Pardini; buchdruckerei M. Ebner,, 1910. Octavo (pp. 40). Original buff printed wrappers. 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. Schumpeter, the Economics and Sociology of Capitalism, Princeton 1991, pp. 34-35).

      Moscow: Tip. P.P. Riabushchinskago, 1910. FIRST EDITION. IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. 8 p., 12 plates. Folio (34 x 26 cm), bound in original printed wrappers (worn along foot of spine). 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.

Modestly told, this is her story of that achievement--an important, classic book. Addams won the Nobel Prize in 1931.

        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]

        St. Goarshausen. Erker und Ecke eines Fachwerkhauses.

      . 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]

        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. 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. 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.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      München, 6. IV. 1910.. 7 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).
