        Twenty Years at Hull-House, with Autobiographical Notes

      Macmillan, New York 1910 - Fine book in the exceptionally scarce dust jacket. Red cloth binding with bright gilt to front cover and spine; central color illustration of Hull House to front cover. Top edge gilt; extremely light wear to extremeties. Text block tight; internally clean and complete, with frontispiece, 11 plates, and 51 illustrations. Very Good dust jacket with some chipping and minor tears to edges; ¼ inch loss to crown; ¾ inch snag to front cover with no loss; small circular discoloration to front cover and spine where auction tags were likely removed; minor soiling and foxing. The first known copy on the market in jacket in over 30 years. With laid in Night Lettergram handwritten and signed by Addams in her capacity as President of the Woman's Peace Party.Jane Addams' global advocacy for women's economic, educational, and social equality made her the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. In her autobiography Twenty Years at Hull-House, Addams recounts her domestic activism as the founder of the second and most innovative settlement house in the U.S. Originally conceived in 1889 as a space where women of privilege could share their knowledge in humanistic fields such as art, literature, and music with the less fortunate, Hull House rapidly transformed into a community support system where working women could learn practical job skills, obtain medical and legal services, and locate affordable housing. Addams' two decades working in inner-city Chicago ultimately inspired her to take a global approach to advocacy; and she founded the Women's League for Peace and Freedom in addition to serving as President of the Woman's Peace Party. The enclosed Night Lettergram to Elsie M. Hill documents this work, as Addams writes in her hand, "Will you strengthen the appeal to be made next Friday by Ethel Snowden of England and Rosika Schwimmer of Hungary to President Wilson by telegramming him immediately at Washington somewhat as follows: 'We urge a conference of neutral nations dedicated to finding a just settlement of this war.' Jane Addams, President, Woman's Peace Party." In Krichmar 4411. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Original Japanese Early 20th Century Textile Designs.

      A collection of 43 original gouache designs for textiles very likely created during the Taishō or early Shōwa period (1910s-20s). The sizes vary with the largest of the sheets measuring around 75 x 35cm with a number though still large, somewhat smaller or of a slightly different shape. The smaller 25 sheets in the collection measure around 35 x 55cm. Handwritten characters on the reverse of one design reads "No 14 of 55", two others have small blue rubber stamps on the reverse which read "No 302" and "No 304" and another a stamp which reads "Kitamura" which may be the name of the company or the person who created the design. Some tears and chips at edges. Each sheet is loosely inserted in a protective mylar sleeve and the collection is presented in an conservation standard clamshell box. A scarce and most attractive collection of a working set of designs. A mixture of designs capturing the fusion of Japanese and Western influences in Japan in the pre-World War II period. The many attractive designs are neither quite Japanese nor Western but all are very striking and may have been a collection of designs for an autumn range.

        Commission des Inondations. Rapports et Documents Divers. 1910

      ciii, 707 pp. volume put out by the Flood Commission, chaired by Alfred Picard, following the Great Flood of Paris of 1910, in which various public authorities analyze the causes of the catastrophic flooding with regards to specific facets of Parisian infrastructure including the bridges, sewers, railways, trams, telegraph and telephone lines, electricity, and gas, and make recommendations for changes to prevent another similar disaster, including the establishment of reservoirs and a deepening of the Seine. Tables, notes. Illustrated with 18 large folding plates including a hydrologic map of the Seine basin, maps of flooded regions, a railway map, and diagrams and charts. 4to. Newer 3/4 leather with raised spine and marbled boards. Paris (Imprimerie Nationale) 1910. In the winter of 1909-1910, Paris and its environs experienced higher than average rainfall. The water level of the Seine rose eight meters, and the city became flooded through its sewers, subway tunnels, and drains. These tunnels had been enlarged as part of Baron Haussmann's changes to the city in 1878, which magnified the level of destruction. Much of Paris's infrastructure was shut down as it was built within the sewage system to keep from cluttering the streets. Tracks at the Gare d'Orsay even sat under a meter of water. On January 28 the water in the Seine reached its maximum height of 8.62 meters above its normal level, and in March levels finally returned to normal. Very scarce; as of January 2018, WorldCat locates only two institutional holdings in North America.

        Commission des Inondations. Rapports et Documents Divers. 1910

      ciii, 707 pp. volume put out by the Flood Commission, chaired by Alfred Picard, following the Great Flood of Paris of 1910, in which various public authorities analyze the causes of the catastrophic flooding with regards to specific facets of Parisian infrastructure including the bridges, sewers, railways, trams, telegraph and telephone lines, electricity, and gas, and make recommendations for changes to prevent another similar disaster, including the establishment of reservoirs and a deepening of the Seine. Tables, notes. Illustrated with 18 large folding plates including a hydrologic map of the Seine basin, maps of flooded regions, a railway map, and diagrams and charts. 4to. Newer 3/4 leather with raised spine and marbled boards. Paris (Imprimerie Nationale) 1910. In the winter of 1909-1910, Paris and its environs experienced higher than average rainfall. The water level of the Seine rose eight meters, and the city became flooded through its sewers, subway tunnels, and drains. These tunnels had been enlarged as part of Baron Haussmann's changes to the city in 1878, which magnified the level of destruction. Much of Paris's infrastructure was shut down as it was built within the sewage system to keep from cluttering the streets. Tracks at the Gare d'Orsay even sat under a meter of water. On January 28 the water in the Seine reached its maximum height of 8.62 meters above its normal level, and in March levels finally returned to normal. Very scarce; as of January 2018, WorldCat locates only two institutional holdings in North America.

        Triumphe - Grafikmappe 1968 Erstausgabe

      Eine Bildfolge mit einen Kupferstich- ('Triumph einer barocken Stadt'.) diese auch signiert und acht Reproduktionen Text von ERNESTO GRASSI (in deutscher und englischer Sprache) 4 Blatt 4 Textseiten und acht montierte und passepartiert Abbildungen Orig. Lila-Samtmappe [Die aufwendig gestaltete Ausgabe auf schwerem Bütten gedruckt und in lila Samtmappe mit Original- Kupferstich ist mit einem durchsichtigen SU versehen]. Von Gugel hielt die provokante Eleganz im Stil des ausgehenden 16. Jahrhunderts und des Barock, die Emblemata zeichneten und stachen, für einen solchen Gewinn, daß er nicht glaubte, für den eigenen Ausdruck darauf Verzicht leisten zu sollen. Gugels Stilverhalten hat immer einen eminent aristokratischen Habitus. Freilich Vollkommenheit hat immer etwas Hochfahrendes, etwas das nicht fraternisiert. Aber wie schockierend ist das in einem Jahrhundert, da die Gleichheit, wie Baudelaire gesagt hat, sich auf dem untersten Niveau vollzieht." aus der Laudatio anläßlich seines 90.Geburtstages, gehalten von Rüdiger Kampmann. Fabius von Gugel (* 13. September 1910 in Worms 28. November 2000 in München) war ein deutscher phantastisch-surrealistischer Zeichner, Grafiker, Maler, Bühnenbildner, Porzellangestalter und Dichter minimal an den Kanten angestaubt -sehr guter allgemein Zustand Versand erfolgt sofort nach Geldeingang !!

        Erène ou l'été fleuri [COPY INSCRIBED TO HIMSELF!]

      C. Marque, Oloron-Sainte-Marie 1910 - In-8° relié (23 x 17,5cm), percaline ivoire, 12 pp. non ch., signet. Il s'agit de l'édition originale (12 ans avant la publication de ces poésies en 1922 chez Emile-Paul frères), limitée à 20 exemplaires numérotés à la main, faite à compte d'auteur par Derème lui-même chez un imprimeur d'Oloron-Sainte-Marie, où sa mère possédait une maison dans laquelle il vint se ressourcer toute sa vie. La date de septembre 1910 est imprimée en page de faux-titre. Fondateur de l'Ecole Fantaisiste avec Francis Carco, le poète Tristan Derème signe de son nom d'artiste un bel envoi à. Philippe Huc -son véritable patronyme!): "à toi, Philippe Huc, qui a pensé ces pages avec ma tête et les as écrites avec ma main." Belle écriture, fine, à l'encre violette. C'est l'exemplaire n°20 (sur 20).Est joint une enveloppe datée de 1930 adressée à H. Henri Bouffard, auteur bordelais, dans laquelle sont conservées deux coupures de presse : une colonne constituée d'un extrait d'un texte d'Antoine Riquoir sur « La Maison de Tristan Derème » (publié en 1930) et une colonne de Tristan Derème sur la poésie, titrée « Le Vrai Trésor », publiée dans Le Figaro où il tenait une chronique hebdomadaire de 1927 à 1929. Plus intéressant encore et émouvant est un courrier manuscrit de 3 feuillets pliés en quatre, écrit à l'encre noire et signé par Derème, depuis Cazères-sur-Garonne, le 4 avril 1913 (période au cours de laquelle il était journaliste-chroniqueur au quotidien local Les Pyrénées et publie « La Flûte fleurie »). Difficile d'identifier le « cher ami » destinataire, probablement un autre poète (Francis Carco ? Paul-Jean Toulet ?) dont Derème se sent proche. Il écrit qu'il est en train de relire « L'Imitation [de Jésus-Christ] » en latin, estimant des traductions, « même les plus illustres » [Derème fait évidemment allusion à Pierre Corneille], « loin d'atteindre à la violence et à la magnifique grandeur de l'original ». Un paragraphe vante la beauté de la campagne de Haute-Garonne. La lettre finit sur une précieuse justification du poète sur le « dédain des rimes » que lui reproche son ami au sujet d'un texte paru dans la revue littéraire « L'île sonnante ». « J'ai voulu tenter une expérience », explique-t-il. Derème parle plutôt d'assonances que de rimes et les recherchent pour traduire un souvenir précis, elles s'éloignent quand il s'agit d'évoquer le temps présent, puis la rime revient, les noms se rapprochent quand le souvenir renaît ; les rimes hésitent enfin dans la dernière partie du texte par la comparaison du passé et de présent. Avec dérision, Derème conclut son explication de texte par un : « Maintenant, j'avoue que tout cela est bien subtil. » De dernier paragraphe de ce courrier fait allusion au chagrin causé par une « atroce aventure ». Le brochage intérieur de cette rare plaquette est fragile, les plats sont incurvés, mais l'ensemble est d'un intérêt supérieur. (TV) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
