        The Digressions of V: Written for His Own Fun and that of his Friends (Two Volumes)

      Boston and NY: Houghton Mifflin Company. Near Fine with no dust jacket. 1910. First Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover. First, limited edition, signed and numbered by Vedder. This is Number 333 of only 525. Bound in publisher's full vellum, gilt lettering on spine, intricate embossed blue and gilt decoration and borders on covers, T.e.g., fore-edge deckle. Profusely illustrated with over a hundred etchings, engravings, gravures, drawings and photographs, all beautifully reproduced and printed on Japan vellum, some tissue-protected, some tipped-in, and a special original drawing made especially by Vedder for this edition, of which only 525 were printed and then the plate destroyed. In addition to Vedder's signature on the limitation page, this copy has an original four-line holograph poem signed by Vedder in Rome on April 14, 1911. Designed by Bruce Rogers. Elihu Vedder (1836 – 1923) was an American symbolist painter, book illustrator, and poet, born in New York City. He is best known for his fifty-five illustrations for Edward FitzGerald's translation of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam (deluxe edition, 1884, published by Houghton Mifflin). Vedder had a home in Rome and - after the financial success of his 1884 Rubaiyat work - on the Isle of Capri, then a haven for male aesthetes. He decorated the hallway of the Reading Room of the Washington Library of Congress, and his mural paintings can still be seen there. In 2008, the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington organized an exhibition of Vedder's Rubaiyat illustrations that toured several museums, including the Phoenix Art Museum. Vedder describes this book as "containing the quaint legends of his infancy, an account of his stay in Florence, the garden of lost opportunities, return home on the track of Columbus, his struggle in New York in war-time coinciding with that of the nation, his prolonged stay in Rome, and likewise his prattlings upon art, tamperings with literature, struggles with verse, and many other things, being a portrait of himself from youth to age. With many illustrations by the author." . Boards lightly soiled, minor shelf-wear. Bindings and hinges tight and strong, all contents clean and unmarked. An extremely nice copy of this handsome and scarce edition. NEAR FINE. . 4to 11" - 13" tall. xxi, 249; vi, 272 pp. Signed by Author .

        Charleville-Verdun (Al. & Ret: 240 km). Record du voyage en France. Roger Sommer sur son biplan SOMMER muni du moteur GNOME 20 Mai 1910

      Paris.: Mabileau & Co.. 1910.. Color lithograph with pochoir (stencil) handcolor, image approximately 15 x 29 inches on sheet 17 3/4 x 35 1/2 inches. Discoloration to lower left corner of sheet (outside image area); thin line of light toning to left upper edge; a few light foxing spots; couple of tiny edge tears to upper edge; clean and bright. 'Gamy' is thought to be a pseudonym of Marguerite Montaut, the wife of the French poster artist Ernest Montaut, who died in 1909 at the age of 31. Ernest Montaut and, after his death, his wife, produced posters whose subject matter reflects the era's fascination with speed, on land and in the air. The posters were elaborately produced employing a combination of color lithography and handcoloring using the pochoir (stencil) process. This image, of a biplane flying low over a flat riverscape with speeding auto below, commemorates the record for flying distance in France set by Roger Sommer on his biplane. .

Fuji, bound together with purple ribbon at the spine, fine decorated silk-backed endpapers. A lovely copy with only occasional mild spotting or mellowing. A beautiful early Japanese tourism book produced for English speaking visitors. Ogawa (1860-1929) was a leading photographer of the period, as well as printer and publisher. He was a pioneer in photomechanical printing and photography in the Meiji era. In 1882, he moved to Boston where he took courses in portrait photography and the dry plate process. He also studied collotype printing in Albert Type Company. Returning to Japan in 1882, he opened the first photography studio in Tokyo. The work was reprinted throughout much of the 1910s in the more common formats with either all or most of the plates in black and white and in more traditionally Western styles of bindings. This is a scarce and beautiful collection.

        A Collection of Books Inscribed to Rachel MacKenzie

      First. A collection of 11 Singer books, nearly all Inscribed to The New Yorker editor Rachel MacKenzie. Rachel MacKenzie (1910-1980) replaced Katherine White as the fiction editor at The New Yorker on the recommendation of May Sarton. During her tenure at the magazine, MacKenzie was noted for her nurturing and editing of, among others, Sarton, Muriel Spark, Philip Roth, and especially Isaac Bashevis Singer. In Master of Dreams: A Memoir of Isaac Bashevis Singer, Singer's assistant of 12 years and later editor, Dvorah Telushkin, remembers watching MacKenzie work with Singer by reading each story out loud to him, line by line, and how she would sometimes request stronger endings to his stories. At MacKenzie's memorial in 1980, Singer revealed that, "Whenever I write something, my first question is, would Rachel have liked it? What faults and defects would she have found in it? To many of her writers, she will remain the measure of what is good and wrong in all their literary endeavors." Singer later dedicated a special edition of his collected stories to MacKenzie, calling her "a literary leader in the best sense of the word." The eleven books are from 1955-1978 and range from fine to very good condition. All but one are first editions and American printings. Each is lovingly Inscribed to MacKenzie by Singer, except one is Inscribed by Singer to MacKenzie's niece. In addition to the books, a brief Typed Letter Signed from Singer's literary agent Robert Lescher to MacKenzie is included. The collection includes: Satan in Goray, Gimpel the Fool and Other Stories, In My Father's Court, Zlateh The Goat and Other Stories, Short Fridays and Other Stories, When Shlemiel Went to Warsaw & Other Stories, A Friend of Kafka, The Fools of Chelm and Their History, Passions and Other Stories, Shosha, and A Young Man in Search of Love. Further details available upon request. .

        The North Pole

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, 1910. With an Introduction by Theodore Roosevelt. Quarto. Original white cloth, gilt, title to spine with the head of a Polar Bear, embossed portrait medallion of Peary to the upper board, and Polar Bear to the lower, top edge gilt the others uncut, lacks silk ties. Photogravure portrait frontispiece and 3 other similar plates, 112 half-tones from photographs tipped onto captioned leaves, large folding coloured circumpolar map showing Peary's route to the Pole at the rear. A little rubbed and soiled, gilt flaked from the cover devices, hinges reinforced with linen, endpapers slightly browned, light toning and the occasional spot of foxing to the text-block, short tear to the map-stub, and a couple of tiny nicks to the fore-edge, overall a very good copy. First edition, edition de luxe, number 2 of 500 copies signed by Peary and R. A. Bartlett. The work that is the basis of Peary's claims to have been first to the Pole. In his history of Arctic exploration, Fergus Fleming describes Peary as "undoubtedly the most driven, possibly the most successful and probably the most unpleasant man in the annals of polar exploration" (Ninety Degrees North, 'I must have fame'). A less controversial, and undeservedly less-celebrated figure is Peary's co-signatory, "Captain Bob" Bartlett. Peary described Bartlett as "invaluable … first, because of his magnificent handling of the Roosevelt; second, because he had cheerfully and gladly stood between me and every possible minor annoyance from the start of the expedition to that day; third, because it seemed right to me that, in view of the noble work of Great Britain in Arctic exploration, a British subject should, next to an American, be able to say that he had stood nearest the North Pole." Bartlett "was widely known as the most skilled of ice-masters" (Books on Ice); having spent more than half a century exploring and charting the waters of the Far North, leading more than 40 expeditions to the Arctic; "he indispensably sailed and sledged for Robert Peary's North Pole assaults, showed great leadership in guiding the Karluk rescue … [and] rescue missions involving Donald Macmillan in 1917 and Roald Amundsen in 1928".

        The Works of Victor HugoInternational Limited Edition

      sp; - Boston - Estes and Lauriat19vol.; 9 by 6; 1910 - A smartleather setcontaining severalof Victor Hugo's most prominent works. Inspired, like so many French writers of his generation, by Chateaubriand, Victor Hugo (1802-1885) was deeply drawn tothe romanticism of the early c. 19. Once vowing 'to be Chateaubriand or nothing,' Hugo became a pre-eminent Romanticist and Republican, finding himself exiled inGuernsey for many years on account of his political views. His name is one of the most instantly recognisable of French literary canon. Perhaps the best-known of Hugo's works are his first full-length novel, Notre-Dame de Paris (translated as the Hunchback of Notre Dame), and the universally-known Les Miserables. Here we have the lion's share of his most prominentwork, in the form of 19 volumes fromthe Estes and Lauriat International Limited Edition, printed on luxurious heavy paper and bearing engraved , tissue-protected plates and bicolour engravedfrontispieces. These editionsare titledas standalone volumes and small sets, though the most recent binder has chosen to assign them numbers I-XIX. Together,complete 30-volumesets of theeditioncan fetch up to 4500.

        The Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th (eleventh) Edition

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, eleventh edition, 1910. Full Flexible Leather with Vertical Case. Very Good +. Large 4to, complete with 29 volumes, 8.75 x 11.75, about 1000 pages each. The ultimate encyclopedic reference for the historian (or any other scholar who wishes to discover the \"state of knowledge\" in his or her specialty before 1910). When we found that precious edition at a yard sale in Minnesota (more than 40 years ago, when we were a lowly graduate student), we almost wet our pants. Of course we bought it, even though it cost us nearly two months\' rent, and we\'ve been hauling it around with us ever since. Now it is time to pass it on to someone who will love as much as we [the Royal] we did! A Collectors\' item. The interiors of all volumes are about as good as it gets. Original burgundy flexible leather covers are very good. They were very good when I bought them more than forty years ago, and they have received several applications of preservative oils since then. Though a bit fragile, they will last many more decades with care and careful handling. The 29 volumes sit horizontally in a vertical case (of mahogany we think), which has but minor, easily remedied scuffing. The case is included, obviously. Also included, a \"reader\'s guide\" which is bound in tan buckram. This is obviously a very heavy product that is very expensive to ship, and so shipping is negotiable (depending on buyer\'s location and desire for care, security, etc.). The product is undoubtedly too large to entrust to the US Postal Service.

COLMAN: painted two of the iconic paintings of the Hudson River School and with his close friend, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and DeForest and Wheeler, established the notable design firm, Tiffany & Associated Artists. Among their collaborations are the 1881 interior design for Samuel Clemens' house in Hartford and the 1882 redecoration of the White House. By the early 1900's Colman was preoccupied with his research & writing on aesthetics and the nature of proportion and he withdrew from commissioned work. "Nature's Harmonic Unity" was his first and most important book. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

        Untitled [drawing of poised hand]

      [Dublin?, c. 1910-20's]. 9 x 8-1/2 in. Charcoal on laid paper. Matted and glazed in black wooden frame, a few spots of foxing, faint creasing and wrinkling else fine. Provenance: Clarke estate . A key motif in the Clarke ouevre--a graceful, slender-fingered hand, here resting poised on the edge of a table. It's conceivable that Clarke modeled this study with his own hand, as Bowe notes the artist's "long tapering fingers" (Bowe, HARRY CLAKRE, p. 23).

        THE HISTORY OF MR. POLLY (In Fine Unrestored DJ with Original Publishers Promo Booklet)

      London: Thomas Nelson, 1910. Wells, H. G. THE HISTORY OF MR. POLLY. London: Thomas Nelson & Sons, 1910. First Edition, first issue. A stunning FINE COPY (with white enamel panel on spine in pristine condition) in a FINE ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S DUST JACKET (slight darkening of spine panel, a few other tiny blemishes but a remarkable unrestored example). Complete with an 8pp inserted publisher's original sales brochure for "Nelson's New Novels" which we've never seen before. Adapted into the 1949 film starring John Mills and twice adapted into TV series by the BBC (in 1959 and 1980). While H.G. Wells (1866- 1946) remains best known today for his scientific romances (The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, Invisible Man), he was also an important social novelist in the vein of Thomas Hardy (subversive in his efforts to expose social hypocrisy) and Dickens (Mr. Polly's journey is an Edwardian riff on Dickensian characters). But Wells used comedy as his weapon and THE HISTORY OF MR. POLLY is an upsetting comic masterpiece, one of Wells' finest literary novels. Middle-class Alfred Polly, a Walter Mitty meets Professor Harold Hill shop window dresser (a new profession in 1910) who devours novels and imagines a life of romance and excitement. But Wells uses moral complexity and ironic humor to lead poor Mr. Polly into a downward and increasingly absurd chain-of-events which destroy his fantasies. An important Wells novel found here in exemplary condition, a better copy would be hard to find.. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine/Fine.
