      n.p. ca. 1910 n.p., ca. 1910. Evidently planned for the edition published by Harper & Brothers, 1910. Image size 17 x 12 inches. Matted . A very interesting drawing indeed, showing Tom, in profile, seated on a barrel with other boys standing by, directing one of a series of his chums who, for a consideration, he has allowed to whitewash the fence: "He had a nice, good, idle time all the while--plenty of company--and the fence had three coats of whitewash on it! If he hadn't run out of whitewash he would have bankrupted every boy in the village". The drawing is a preliminary one--the figure of Tom is well realized, but the others are done in a sketchier manner--evidently for the Harper 1910 edition. This image was subsequently replaced with one showing just Tom and another boy by the fence. A noteworthy drawing, showing how Brehm went about constructing one of his superb illustrations for Twain's classic work

        Direktörens prolog vid Intima teaterns öppnande den 26 november 1907. Stockholm, Victor Swanström boktr.,

      1910. (4) s. Klammerhäftad och insatt i ett något nött styvt grönt omslag med handskriven titel och Gustaf Drakes namnteckning. Gott skick.. Zetterlund I:121. Tryckt på Lessebo bikupan-papper i 30 numrerade exemplar, varav detta är nummer 17. Drömmen om en egen teater, där han kunde sätta upp sina pjäser och göra verklighet av sina dramatiska visioner följde Strindberg under större delen av hans verksamma liv. Efter misslyckandet med Forsøgsteatret i Köpenhamn på 80-talet dök planerna upp igen i såväl Berlin som Paris. 1906 hade tiden blivit mogen. Hans dramatik hade börjat röna framgångar ute i Europa, och hemma i Sverige hade den unga regissören och skådespelaren August Falck vågat sätta upp "Fröken Julie". Uppsättningen blev en succé och Strindberg kontaktade Falck för att diskutera sina planer på en mindre teater i Stockholm efter kontinental förebild. Resultatet, Intima teatern, öppnade vid Norra bantorget året därpå med Falck som direktör. Falck berättar om premiären i sin bok "Fem år med Strindberg": "Föreställningen öppnades med en Strindbergsprolog, [...]. Jag hade fått lov om att få manuskriptet dagen innan, men jag fick istället en biljett: 'Br. F. / Sofvit illa! Kunde ej gå ut! / Inställ prologen. / Jag kommer på generalrep! / Aug. Sg.'. Strindberg hade också vid ett tillfälle varit av den åsikten att premiären måste misslyckas, eftersom vi spelade Pelikanen. Han hade själv varit med om att välja stycket men ångrat sig, dock för sent för att någonting skulle kunna ändras. Först en stund innan ridån gick upp, kom prologen i min hand."

      Houghton Mifflin Company Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1910. Large Paper Edition." ONE OF 500 COPIES. Beautifully Bound, and this Set Never Read 279 x 159 mm (11 x 6 1/4").10 volumes. LOVELY DARK OLIVE BROWN THREE-QUARTER CRUSHED MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, marbled sides and endpapers, raised bands, spine compartments densely gilt with floral and foliate tools emanating from a large central rose, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed, THE SET ENTIRELY UNOPENED. Vignette title pages, a map of the Lake District, and 75 PHOTOGRAVURE PLATES (with letterpress tissue guards), including one hand-colored plate at the beginning that duplicates a black and white plate elsewhere in the volume. Title page in red and black. Each volume with full-page tipped-in bookplate of Fannie May Howard. IN REMARKABLY FINE CONDITION, essentially without any wear, virtually pristine internally, and obviously used so little that the volumes open unwillingly. This is a really beautiful and almost untouched set of the works of William Wordsworth (1770-1850), who changed English poetry forever. When he (and Samuel Taylor Coleridge) published "Lyrical Ballads" in 1798-1800, he undertook the revolutionary modification of the entrenched traditional artificial verse styles in order to capture forceful sincerity and elemental human emotions. His radical purpose was nothing short of the reformation of poetry by deposing an artificial literary tradition and substituting a new poetics, more in keeping with normal contemporary speech patterns. Folk ballads, as "natural" poetry, formed his models for pieces that reveal a sense of lasting joy in nature and in experiences common to all humans. And there was considerably more to his poetic output afterwards, as he lived and wrote for another half century beyond the appearance of this landmark publication. Among other things, Wordsworth established himself as the first great English writer since Milton to produce a substantial number of notable poems in the sonnet form. Our edition of his complete poetry includes an index to titles and to first lines as well as an essay entitled "William Wordsworth" by Hamilton Wright Mabie. The publisher's note at the front says that the illustrations here are "intended to reproduce the atmosphere of Wordsworth's poetry through the medium of a remarkable series of photographs taken by Walmsley Brothers of Ambleside, England. These artists have lived all their lives in the Wordsworth country, and are enthusiastic admirers of the great poet, and it is hoped that their photographs, the product of a genuine love of Wordsworth, a wide and intimate knowledge of the Wordsworth country, and a keen artistic sense, will add materially to the reader's pleasure [as well as] afford a fitting accompaniment to the text.

Originally published in Little Folks Magazine in 1901 with black and white illustrations, this has six plates coloured by Harry Rountree with Rackham's permission as well as 12 black and white illustrations. This is the Canadian issue identical to the British edition by Duckworh with a cancel Musson title page and Musson imprinted at the bottom of the spine, and probably printed with a very small print run. Presumably issued at the same time as the 1910 Duckworth edition and there is a gift inscription dated Easter 1914. Bound in gilt-titled brown cloth with a large rectangular paste-on, TEG. Most of the original red jacket is present although it is in two pieces and completely missing the spine with a large title paste-on with the smaller illustration pasted on to that. Aforesaid gift inscription, very light wear to the book, some tanning to the endpapers, some mild white spotting on spine. Besides missing the spine the jacket has considerable wear along the top edge. A very nice copy of a scarce Rackham, even more scarce in the Canadian issue, and spectacularly rare in jacket, regardless of condition.

Foundation work of 19th century decoration and a precursor to the Arts and Crafts movement, first published in 1856. Contains beautifully executed chromolithographs of decorative elements from a number of cultures and historical periods, including "savage tribes," Egyptian, Assyrian and Persian, Classical Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arabian, Turkish, the Moors, Indian & Hindu, Chinese, Celtic, Medieval, Renaissance, Elizabethan, Italian, and forms from nature. Also contains Jones' "General Principles in the Arrangement of Form and Colour in Architecture and the Decorative Arts..." in thirty-seven propositions following the Preface. Jones (1806-1889), an architect, designer and teacher, collected decorative examples from throughout the globe and history in an attempt to create a comprehensive manual for design work. His idea was not a slavish imitation of styles, but for designers to assimilate and integrate these elements, making them part of their practical knowledge. Very Good.

        Substanzbegriff und Funktionsbegriff. Untersuchungen über die Grundfragen der Erkenntniskritik.

      Berlin, Bruno Cassirer, 1910. Lex 8vo. cont. hcalf w. red title-labels and gilt spine. Front hinge broken and spine loose. Internally clean, apart from marginal annotations in pencil (probably by Anton Thomsen). Printed on thick paper. XV, (1), 459, (1) pp.. First edition of Cassirer's first original and systematic work, "Substance and Function", which actually began his philosophical-scientific path. The copy has belonged to the Danish philosopher, Anton Thomsen, and bears his bookplate on inside of front board, his ownership signature on fly-leaf, the date "Oktober-Nov. 1910", as well as the inscription in his hand: "Gave fra Forf." ("Gift from the author"). Anton Thomsen was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Copenhagen before Johannes Jørgensen, but unfortunately he died at a very young age. He wrote important books on Hume and Hegel and was a respected philosopher.This early work is considered highly important to the development of twentieth-century philosophy of mathematics and natural science. By directly using recent developments within the foundations of mathematics and mathematical logic, Cassirer comes to create a highly important work, in which he claims that developments in modern formal logic will enable us to once and for all reject philosophical empiricism, by rejecting the abstractionist part that underlies it (general concepts are given by induction from sensory particulars). Based on Dedekind's and Hilbert's works, which showed that mathematics has a meaning that is purely formal and ideal and is not based on sense or intuition, so that pure mathematics will be able to describe relational structures, Cassirer arrives at his conclusions that mathematical and natural scientific terms are terms of relations and not of things. The terms belonging to the strict sciences are joints/ links in a chain; these links are connected in a certain way and give sense to the numerous different perceptions of things. For Cassirer the object of perception is actually a web of relations, and the unity of being and thinking is the result of the two principles of convergence, that of the chain and that of experience.With the symbolic language of mathematics the theory of nature can become an actual description of the given, and it can be kept free from speculation.Cassirer has thus employed the late nineteenth-century "formalist" conception of mathematics and created a new sort of philosophical work that propounds a more abstract version of the genetic conception of knowledge

      1910. Size: 505 x 660 mm. Lithograph on wove paper. Very good condition. In 1893, a seductive courtesan, Irma de Montigny, opened the door of a little coachman's meeting house owned by a waiter named Maxime Gaillard. She transformed the meeting house into one of the most celebrated romantic meeting places in Europe. However, it was Eugene Cornuche, Maxime's magician, who endowed the house with its world-wide reputation one after the other hundreds of celebrated personalities - Marcel Proust, Edouard VII, The Belle Otero, Maria Callas, Marlene Dietrich, Sacha Guitry, Mistinguett, Rita Hayworth, Aga Khan, and then Brigitte Bardot, Jeanne Moreau, The Prince of Venice, and so on. Maxim's has long been regarded as one of the world's great restaurants. Maxim's decor is influenced by the Parisian Belle Epoque flora and fauna ornamentation designed by Maurice Carrere, from the famed scroll work and plush red banquettes to the glistening inlays of brass and stained glass, and rich mahogany tones. The famed artist, George Goursat, also known as Sem, frequented the Maxim's restaurant where he sat for hours drawing caricatures of the society patrons. Sem attained a level of success with his wonderfully imaginative portrayals of Paris. By capturing the spirit of the subject, rather than the exact physical traits, Sem produced images that were probably truer to life than formal portraits. His skill as a caricaturist was outstanding. His works offer us glimpses into Parisian high society at the turn of the century.

With an untouched interior and a sumptuous binding that features lovely leather doublures, this is an extremely handsome and desirable set of the works of Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592), whose influential "Essays" were universally read and praised as one of the great books of the age. And they continue to be regarded as one of the major explorations, from any period, of human nature through self examination. The topics of the essays range from the frivolous (for example, Montaigne's argument, based on reports of the discovery of naked savages, that dress is superfluous) to the profound, as in his famous defense of Raymond Sebond, which argues for a dispassionate tolerance in religious controversy. Our author's writing style is fresh, racy, and familiar as opposed to lofty; it is digressive to the point of haphazard and is almost always both diverting and meaningful. The tolerance, moderation, and rationalism that breathe from his essays gave them great appeal for the English in the time of James I. The 17th century British authors most in the tradition of Montaigne include Walton, Browne, and Burton. Each of these three later writers shared Montaigne's approach of purportedly illuminating all of humanity by writing about oneself. The translator here, Charles Cotton (1630-87), will always be linked with his great friend Izaak Walton because of their collaboration on "The Compleat Angler." But Cotton was an important Caroline poet in his own right who numbered among his friends Ben Jonson and Donne as well as Walton. In the world of British letters, our editor William Hazlitt (1778-1830) was a memorable figure whose essays and criticism were of the greatest importance, even if his literary pronouncements were sometimes colored by the degree to which a writer's political beliefs were aligned with his own. The present edition is distinguished by the presence of a prefatory 43-page essay on Montaigne by Emerson.

        “She was driven away, beside herself with joy”

      1910. A Spectacular Original Watercolor Drawing by Edmund DulacDepicting Cinderella on Her Way to the BallDULAC, Edmund (1882-1953). “She was driven away, beside herself with joy.” Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing for the color plate facing p. 54, illustrating “Cinderella or The Little Glass Slipper,” in The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales from the Old French Retold by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch (London: [1910]). This spectacular watercolor drawing is typical of Dulac’s blue period and depicts a wooded scene with a full moon in the background and Cinderella being driven to the ball in “a beautiful coach all covered with gold,” drawn by horses “of a lovely grey, dappled with mouse colour” and accompanied by a coachman and three footmen in “their bedizened liveries.” Signed and dated at lower right. Image size: 12 1/2 x 10 1/4 inches (318 x 260 mm). Matted, framed, and glazed.“‘Good-bye, child!’ said her godmother. ‘But of one thing I must warn you seriously. I have power to send you thus to the ball, but my power lasts only until midnight. Not an instant beyond midnight must you stay there. If you over-stay the stroke of twelve, your coach will become but a pumpkin again, your horses will change back into mice, your footmen into lizards, and your ball dress shrink to the same rags in which I found you.’ Cinderella promised that she would not fail to take her departure before midnight: and, with that, the coachman cracked his whip and she was driven away, beside herself with joy.”“In November 1910, Hodder and Stoughton advertised Dulac’s newest book, The Sleeping Beauty, as ‘the most beautiful book ever published at a popular price’. (All 1,000 copies of the de luxe edition had been sold out a month earlier)…In painting the pictures [for this book, Dulac] found inspiration for his fairy tale characters’ dress and surroundings in the French 18th century. That of ‘the period’, as Mr. Quiller-Couch tells us in the preface, ‘when the literature he illustrates was at the acme of its vogue’. Such historical and artistic accuracy had become Dulac’s habit as he fashioned the details of his gift books—the binding, lettering style, end papers, pictures—integrating all into a unified whole. The result of this effort was appreciated by the Illustrated London News critic who highly recommended The Sleeping Beauty book for adults as well as children (December 3, 1910): ‘In binding, type, and illustrations, it is all that could be desired’…In the book’s pictures themselves, Dulac’s powerful, zesty and humorous style of the Arabian Nights and the Lyrics is much subdued…Here his technique seems akin to Arthur Rackham’s method of outlining figures in pen and ink and filling them in with colour. The complete illustrations too seem more like Rackham’s than any others of Dulac’s work” (Hughey 23, Comment). “In his painting, Edmund Dulac was ever the experimenter, ever the innovator…From his first to his last picture, Dulac displayed sensational colours, great design impact, orientalism and humor. From among the illustrators of his period, he is known as the outstanding colourist. His special shade of blue was called, with double entendre, bleu du lac. Not only his blue, but his very French talent for unusual combinations of colors, produced stunning effects” (Hughey, Introduction).“After the appearance in 1907 of Stories from the Arabian Nights with fifty plates from his hand, Dulac became Rackham’s chief rival in providing colored illustrations for reproduction by the three-color process for the giftbook trade. His best work, however, is to be found in The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales. His designs for the title story and ‘Cinderella’ have ornate eighteenth-century settings in which some indebtedness to the engravings for Le cabinet des fées can be discerned” (Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England, pp. 207-209).
