        Signed Photo Postcard of Hedin.

      Paul Heckscher, Stockholm 1910 - Stockholm: Paul Heckscher, ca. 1910. Ca. 13,5x8,5 cm (5 x 3 ½ in). Postcard in very good condition. "Between 1894 and 1908, in three daring expeditions through the mountains and deserts of Central Asia, he mapped and researched parts of Chinese Turkestan (officially Xinjiang) and Tibet which had been unexplored until then. Upon his return to Stockholm in 1909 he was received as triumphantly as Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld. In 1902, he became the last Swede (to date) to be raised to the untitled nobility and was considered one of Sweden's most important personalities. As a member of two scientific academies, he had a voice in the selection of Nobel Prize winners for both science and literature. Hedin never married and had no children, rendering his family line now extinct. Hedin's expedition notes laid the foundations for a precise mapping of Central Asia. He was one of the first European scientific explorers to employ indigenous scientists and research assistants on his expeditions. Although primarily an explorer, he was also the first to unearth the ruins of ancient Buddhist cities in Chinese Central Asia. However, as his main interest in archaeology was finding ancient cities, he had little interest in gathering data thorough scientific excavations. Of small stature, with a bookish, bespectacled appearance, Hedin nevertheless proved himself a determined explorer, surviving several close brushes with death from hostile forces and the elements over his long career. His scientific documentation and popular travelogues, illustrated with his own photographs, watercolor paintings and drawings, his adventure stories for young readers and his lecture tours abroad made him world famous" (Wikipedia).

        Sonetti e Poemi (1898 - 1909).

      Comitato Ligure Apuano (Edisso Traversari),, Empoli, 1910 - In-8° (215x157mm), (2), XIII, 406, (2), legatura del tempo in t. tela rossa. Titolo in oro al dorso. Conservata la brossura originale illustrata da Plinio Nomellini. Un ritratto dell'autore all'antiporta e 13 xilografie in b.n. di Adolfo De Carolis. Dedica autografa di Roccatagliata Ceccardi all'occhietto: "Al poeta Domenico Giuseppe Carbonaro per affettuoso ricordo Ceccardo Roccatagliata Ceccardi Genova li 11 Maggio 1910". Il nome del dedicatario, ancorché in parte abraso, è tuttavia ancora decifrabile. Si tratta dello stesso Carbonaro autore di un unico volume, "Primi versi: raccolta di poesie varie" (Genova, Palagi, 1909), libro per cui lo stesso Ceccardi fece una prefazione. La p. 37, con il sonetto "Nel primo dì dei morti ch'Ella viaggia in lor paesi" (n. XXXV della raccolta), mancante del testo a stampa, è abilmente integrata da una mano del tempo in nitida calligrafia corsiva (dello stesso Ceccardi o del Carbonaro ?). Prima della p. 36, è posta un bozza dattiloscritta su velina firmata e corretta di suo pugno da Ceccardi stesso, datata a stampa "Carrara, cadendo l'Ottobre del 1918" e, nella firma in calce, "la sera del Natale 1918". Sono presenti anche alcune correzioni autografe a matita, costituenti interessanti varianti della lirica. Tali correzioni sono presenti nella trascrizione calligrafica posta immediatamente dopo, che accoglie la lezione definitiva della lirica. Alla p. 296 è applicata un'epigrafe a stampa dello stesso Ceccardi "Per Marco e Maria Carbonaro a Staglieno". Qualche ingiallitura e traccia d'uso lieve. Bell'esemplare. Edizione originale in raccolta, nella tiratura di lusso di sole 500 copie per i sottoscrittori e in copia che costituisce di per sé un prezioso cimelio ceccardiano, dei versi composti nel decennio 1898-1909 dal grande poeta ligure (Genova, 1871-ivi, 1919). Gambetti / Vezzosi, p. 772. Spaducci, p. 249. Asor Rosa, p. 469. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

This volume . is therefore now submitted to the British Public with the fullest confidence that it will be received with exactly the same amount of acclamation as that to which I have become accustomed." Crowley was correct, and the book was widely ignored in literary circles. Spine quite heavily rubbed and missing an eighth of an inch sliver from the tail and with a few short, closed tears, corner's bruised and rubbed, some discoloration to boards, edges dusty, light browning to endpapers. Still a tight, clean near-VG copy of a book which is often encountered in much worse shape. (no dustjacket, none issued) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        MAX JACOB. Double Signed Litho.

      1910, Montrouge [Paris] 1910 - Picasso. Max Jacob. MAX JACOB. Double Signed Litho. Montrouge [Paris] (Seine). 1910. 14" 7/8 X 10" 3/4 on plain paper stock printed in black. Number 17 of only 30 copies. A rare early illustration of Picasso's close friend, Max Jacob, done in celebration of Jacob's conversion to Christianity. Jacob, who had Jewish origins, claimed to have had a vision of Christ in 1909, causing his conversion. The illustration of Jacob [the first of Picasso's drawings of Max Jacob] seated comfortably in a fine armchair, dressed in his three piece suit, his dome appropriately receptive. The printed text: [Top] A mon ami Max Jacob / Picasso .10 / 22 R. Victor Hugo / Montrouge (Seine) - [Middle] L'archange foudroyé n'eut que le temps / de desserrer sa cravate . On aurait sit qu'il / priait encore./ C. Max Jacob. Signed in pencil with his new Christian name: "C. Max Jacob" & by "Picasso" at the bottom. A very good or better example of this rare piece - Max Jacob is regarded as an important link between the symbolists & the surrealists, as can be seen in his prose poems Le cornet à dés (The Dice Box, 1917. Throughout the year of 1901, Picasso traveled to Barcelona & Paris for art exhibitions. During an exhibition in Paris, Picasso met Max Jacob. Max Jacob was a poet, painter, & art critic with connections in the Parisian cultural scene. The two artists developed a friendship after Jacob left an admiring note for Picasso at the art gallery displaying Picasso's work (Richardson Vol. I, 203). Jacob introduced Picasso to the French language and to French theatre; Jacob was also an actor. Jacob took Picasso to see operas which possibly included I Pagliacci & La Bohème (Richardson Vol. I, 338). "At night there were frequent visits to the cabarets of Montmartre such as the Chat Noir, and, when tickets could be found, to the Moulin Rouge" (Penrose Picasso 76). Picasso & his friends also enjoyed the artistic atmosphere of Le Lapin Agile. Artists & writers would congregate at the small café to listen to recitals, exchange ideas & celebrate special occasions such as the opening of an exhibition (Penrose Picasso 117). The walls of the café were lined with work by artists that were used as payment for debts. Theatrical entertainment was a prominent part of Picasso's social life in Paris. By 1904, Picasso had established a foothold in Paris and would remain in the cultural center of Europe for the rest of his life. Picasso & Max Jacob cultivated their talents in a dwelling known as the Bateau Lavoir. According to Penrose, this place was ". . . composed it seemed of nothing but lofts & cellars, all in such a sad state of repair. . . " (Picasso 96). Artists of all endeavors were attracted to this bohemian style of living. Picasso's neighbors included painters, sculptors, writers & actors (Penrose Picasso 102). One of Picasso's most influential friends entered his life in 1905: Guillaume Apollinaire. "From the first encounter, Pablo Picasso and Guillaume Apollinaire established a creative dialogue that fostered and inspired some of their finest art & poetry". Apollinaire was a poet & playwright, identified as a Surrealist, who kept close connections with literary & artistic figures in Paris including Max Jacob & André Salmon. He was a great source for Picasso to meet writers & theatre artists. Many of Picasso's friends encouraged him to frequent the theatre with artists & poets from Paris (Picasso Penrose 177). Even though Picasso was not in Paris, he managed to find groups of artistic individuals to stay abreast of cultural gossip & happenings. Picasso's connections with writers led him to create several illustrations for books of poetry for friends. For example, during summer 1910 in Cadaques, Catalonia, painting with Derain, Picasso was commissioned to illustrate a poetic novel written by Max Jacob titled Saint Matorel issued by Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler in 1911. (Penrose Picasso 179). This was only the first of five collections of poetry by Max Jacob that contain [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Sunset, Darling Harbor

      Sydney: c, 1910. Original watercolour on artist's watercolour board, 240 mm. x 530 mm.; in excellent condition, signed 'J.H. Young', dated '24.4.10' on the verso, framed. A fine watercolour of Darling Harbour, by well-regarded turn-of-the-century Sydney artist John Henry Young. This atmospheric watercolour, imbued with the pink light of early evening, shows a most attractive view of the burgeoning metropolis of Sydney seen across the waters of Darling Harbour. The domes of the newly-completed Queen Victoria Building (finished in 1898), the Town Hall and the spire of St. Andrew's Cathedral are visible on the skyline, as are a number of smoke stacks, which give a clear sense of the industrialisation of inner Sydney at the time. Pyrmont Bridge is to the right of the scene with passengers traversing it in two horse-drawn omnibuses. The watercolour provides an interesting documentary record of shipping traffic in this busy part of the harbour around the turn of the century: a tall-masted sailing ship is moored upstream of the bridge, and two small steamers and a larger twin masted paddle-steamer are moored on the far side of the harbour, downstream of the bridge. In the foreground is a small commercial steam-powered craft, with a sailor standing at the stern. Two large timber pylons are seen at the centre of the picture. John Henry Young exhibited at the Art Society of New South Wales (of which he was a committee member) from 1895 to 1910, and is known to have been still active in 1935. He is best known for his watercolours of maritime subjects both in and around Sydney Harbour, however he also painted overseas including the Mediterranean, France and Egypt. This work is signed 'J.H. Young' in the lower left hand corner. What appears to be the date '24.4.10', and the number 4, are written in pencil on the back of the watercolour board. It is reasonable to assume that this was the date of the painting or exhibition, in which it was shown, along with the number in the catalogue. This work is from the collection of the artist's grandson, at Sherbourne, in the United Kingdom.
