        Modern Development of the Dry Fly: The New Dry Fly Patterns, the Manipulation of Dressing them, and Practical Experiences of their Use

      E.P. Dutton, New York 1910 - (10 13/16 x inches). Half-titles, titles printed in red and black. Photogravure frontispiece portrait of Edgar Williamson on mounted india paper, 9 chromolithographic plates of fishing flies, 18 colour charts, 16 photogravures of fish and fishing spots on india paper mounted, 22 text illustrations; second volume with 33 actual fishing flies displayed in sunken compartments on nine heavy board mounts. Maroon half morocco gilt to style, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt First American edition, deluxe edition limited to 50 copies signed by the author, this set numbered 18. A total of 125 copies of this deluxe edition were produced: 50 for sale in the United States, and 75 for sale in the British Empire. The deluxe edition of this classic work is preferred over the regular edition for a number of reasons. The first and most obvious is the presence of a second volume including the 33 specimens of actual flies, tied by Hardy Brothers and/or C. Farlow's according to the author's very specific instructions, with careful attention paid to the colour and form of each fly. The second reason is the fact that the text is printed on fine quality Whatman laid paper that is also considerably larger than the paper used in the regular edition. Thirdly the plates, particularly those on india paper, are of a much higher quality that those in the regular edition. This work was aimed quite specifically at those who fished the chalk streams of southern England, but its central message, that the artificial flies should match their living counterparts as closely as possible, was understood to be applicable around the world. This dictum, together with the author's skills in conveying the joys and tribulations of fishing have combined to produce a work that is much in demand today. Litchfield 73.

        REWARDS AND FAIRIES in the scarce dustwrapper

      Garden City: Doubleday , Page & Co.. Near Fine in Very Good- dust jacket. 1910. First American Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. xiv & 344 pages; Clean and tight in the publisher's green cloth binding in original dustjacket. This is the familiar Doubleday American trade binding design for titles written by the popular Rudyard Kipling, with bold lettering in gilt on the front cover and spine, and a pair of stylized images of a sailboat impressed in black -- large on the front cover and a smaller device on the spine. What is much less familiar is the presence of the rare dust jacket on this copy. This jacket consists of a thin, buff paper stock and has lettering and a pictorial device centered on the front panel printed in dark green. We share the disdain which experienced booksellers have for the use of the phrase "good for its age." This is a formula applied all too frequently by the ill-informed or lazy. In this case, the former can be forgiven to some extent, as dust jackets over one hundred years old are very rare, indeed. As luck would have it, this example is genuinely very good for any age, and deserves careful description. The front panel states the title and author, with a half-tone pictorial device at the panel's center (this is a smaller version of the final illustration, which faces p. 298 in the text). Under this pictorial device is a short description, making it clear that this volume represents the return of the popular "Puck of Pook's Hill" -- under this is the original price: "Illustrated, 1.50." The spine repeats the texts (minus the description of contents) and price from the front panel, with a smaller circular pictorial device, and with Doubleday, Page & Co.'s imprint at the foot. The front flap has a list of the 21 titles available in "The Pocket Kipling" -- ("Rich, red leather" binidings, 1.50 plus 7 cents postage, each). The rear flap has a notice of the 1910 special edition of Kipling's "Collected Poems" (with illustrations by W. Heath Robinson -- 3.50 - 10 in leather). The rear flap has ads for three "New Publications" from Doubleday, Page ["The Motor Maid" by C. N. and A. M. Williamson; "The Power and the Glory" by Grace MacGowan Cooke; and "Queen Sheba's Ring" by H. Rider Haggard]. This rare and entirely un-restored dust jacket is integral and clean, but has chipping with minor losses at the spine ends (especially at the top, where the shallow losses continue across the top edge of the front panel and top corner, but this very narrow band of loss never touches the double rules which frame the front panel); minor wear and a couple of closed tears continue at the other edges, with some minor rubbing at the hinges of the spine, particularly the rear hinge, which terminates at the bottom with a separation at the final inch and a half. The spine and the edges show minor toning. The volume itself is remarkable -- clean and crisp stamping in gilt and black, and original lustre to the ribbed cloth, and unworn tight corners and hinges. The endpapers are clean and unmarked and the hinges are tight and unworn. There is a tiny flake of white at the very bottom edge of the spine; and the original owner enclosed a newspaper clipping with the text of Kipling's poem "Tommy" which has browned, and left a small rectangle of toning to the second page of the "Contents" and the facing leaf listing the "Illustrations" -- pp. x & [xi} -- the clipping has been retained, but is now in an archival mylar sleeve. There are four full-page illustrations by Frank Craig -- (the same illustrations appear in the 1910 London edition from Macmillan). Kipling was awarded the first Nobel Prize issued to a writer of English literature in 1907. 'Rewards and Fairies' consists of a series of short stories set in historical times with a linking contemporary narrative. Dan and Una are two children, living in the Weald of Sussex in the area of Kipling's own home Bateman's. They have encountered Puck and he magically conjures up real and fictional individuals from Sussex's past to tell the children some aspect of its history and prehistory, though the episodes, in keeping with their elements of fantasy, are not always historically accurate. There is a mixture of verse throughout, notably including the first publication of the poem "If—" ["If you can keep your head when all about you / are losing theirs..."] -- This first appearance occurs at the end of "Brother Square Toes" chapter of the book -- see pp. 181-2. "If" became one of the best known and loved poems in the English language, even its author was stunned by its life following this 1910 publication. Kipling's commentary on the response to it in his 1937 autobiography: "Among the verses in 'Rewards' was one set called `If--', which escaped from the book, and for a while ran about the world. They were drawn from [ Leander Starr] Jameson's character, and contained counsels of perfection most easy to give. Once started, the mechanization of the age made them snowball themselves in a way that startled me. Schools, and places where they teach, took them for the suffering Young - which did me no good with the Young when I met them later. (`Why did you write that stuff? I've had to write it out twice as an impot.').They were printed as cards to hang up in offices and bedrooms; illuminated text-wise and anthologized to weariness. Twenty-seven of the Nations of the Earth translated them into their seven-and-twenty tongues, and printed them on every sort of fabric." (Something of Myself page 146). Competitors at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships pass under the third and fourth lines of the second stanza of the poem: “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster / and treat those two impostors just the same” -- the quote is inscribed on the wall of the players' entrance to the Centre Court at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. There is a bittersweet note to the afterlife of "If--" Kipling's son John, to whom the text is addressed as advice, was killed in action a few years later in the first World War John Kipling had poor eyesight and had failed examinations to enlist in the British Navy and then, the Army. He was only offered a place in the "Irish Guards" as a favor to his famous father. He was last seen stumbling through the mud blindly, screaming in agony after an exploding shell ripped his face apart at the Battle of Loos in September 1915 at age 18. No remains were found until 1982 (and this identification remains the subject of controversy). "If you can fill the unforgiving minute / With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, / Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, / And—which is more—you'll be a Man, my son!" Copies of the 1910 'Rewards and Fairies' in dust jacket are not entirely unknown. A couple of years ago, a London bookselling firm offered a copy of the British first edition (Macmillan and Co., 1910). It was quite expensive (many times our price) and is now marked as "sold" on their webpages. .

London-born Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) studied drawing at evening classes at Lambeth School of Art (from 1884) for 7 years whilst working full-time in insurance. He began his career using the then new half-tone process, his fame spreading upon publication of his illustrated Grimm's Fairy Tales in 1909. In 1905 his illustrated Rip van Winkle introduced him to the US public; one year later Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens was published. Rackham was made a full member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1908, and was honoured abroad, with gold medals from Milan (1906) and Barcelona (1911).

        A letter to American teachers of history

      Washington, [D.C.]: [press of J.H. Furst Co., Baltimore], 1910. First edition, signed by Henry Adams at the end of the introductory letter; 12mo, pp. vi, 214, [2]; original green cloth, spine a bit sunned and with a small snag in the cloth (not effecting any lettering), otherwise very good. "In 1910 Adams published and scattered widely a little volume which he called A Letter to American Teachers of History. Its style was designedly colloquial and its tone provocative. Assuming the validity of the second law of thermodynamics, that there is a universal tendency to the dissipation of mechanical energy, he pointed out the dilemma of teachers of history if they postulated a progressive evolution in human history towards some state of perfection, or tried to exempt mind from the operation of the law. What did they propose to do about it? Human thought should be considered as a substance passing from one phase to another, through a series of critical points which are determined by attraction, acceleration, and volume. - the equivalents of pressure, temperature, and volume in mechanical physics. In short, the future historian who would interpret the movement called history would have to seek his education in the world of mathematical physics" (Allen Johnson, in DAB). BAL 34: "Many copies, perhaps most, signed by the author at p. vi."

        Photographic portraits of native men, Admiralty Islands, Bismarck Archipelago, circa 1910

      Three large format photographic magic lantern glass slides, each 120 x 90 mm, the mounts with paper labels bearing the same contemporary manuscript caption in GermanAdmiralitätsinseln (Admiralty Islands) and the imprint of the Bavarian magic lantern firm Lichtbild-Anstalt G. Bachschmid, Kempten-Allgäu; all three slides are in superb condition. These powerful portrait photographs were taken not by a professional photographer but by a German visitor to the Bismarck Archipelago around 1910. At this time the entire archipelago from the Admiralties (lying just to the north of the island of New Guinea) across to New Ireland was under German administration. The two solo portraits of Admiralty Islands men were taken on board the visitor's ship - whether it was a naval vessel or a Norddeutscher Lloyd passenger ship is difficult to tell. One of the men is wearing traditional beadwork armbands; the other is wearing a distinctive Admiralty Islands comb in his hair. The group portrait of three young men was taken on land in front of a shed, possibly used for storing copra, with the wooden construction providing a stark backdrop.

        Abito originale. Circa 1910

      , , . Vestito lungo in velluto stampato in argento, seta e chiuso da bottoni in vetro veneziano, appartenuto a Cesarina Gualino. Circa 1910. . . . Dal testo di Maria Paola Maino in "Cesarina Gualino e i suoi amici", a cura di Maurizio Fagiolo Dell'Arco e Beatrice Marconi: "[Mariano Fortuny] poco dopo inizia a comporre vestiti con le stoffe che già stampava per arredamento, vestiti ispirati a Micene, alla Grecia, alla pittura veneta del Rinascimento; pensati come pezzi unici per le signore del bel mondo internazionale all'avanguardia del gusto, che passavano da Venezia tra un gran tour e una festa. É appunto databile dal 1911 in poi, la tunica di Cesarina Gualino, formata da due pezzi dritti di velluto stampato con un leggero strascico sul dietro, congiunti ai lati da inserti plissettati di seta tenuti insieme da lacci e bottoni di vetro soffiato veneziano; la stessa seta il pittore la usava per i suoi più famosi vestiti "Delphos", ispirati all'Auriga conservati al Louvre. Fortuny crea vestiti da artista, assolutamente agli antipodi dei grandi sarti suoi coevi come Worth o Poiret: le sue creazioni evocano i fasti di un immaginario passato e di un lusso inarrivabile, è per questo che Proust li fa indossare a Madame de Guermantes e ad Albertine. [..] Possiamo immaginare che nella "splendida, riuscitissima, indimenticabile" festa dell'inaugurazione del Castello di Cereseto, nel 1912, Cesarina indossasse il vestito Fortuny ora in mostra".

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. München, 12. XII. 1910.

      1910. 3½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Eben lese ich die Worte, mit denen Sie Pfitzners 'Abendrot' einführen, und das ist der richtige Moment einen Brief an Sie zu schreiben, den ich schon lange mich gedrängt fühle zu schreiben. Wollen wir - ich meine die paar Leute die wissen, wer Pfitzner ist - noch länger den Concertagenten überlassen, wann seine Zeit kommen soll? Ich würde meiner Denkart nach allem 'Veranstalteten' ais dem Weg gehen, wenn es nicht den schrecklichen Begriff gäbe: zu spät. Ohne Dazuthun wird Pfitzner ein Objekt der Musikhistorie werden, wenn er tot ist. Uns liegt es ob ihn zu fördern solang er schaffen kann. Und so möchte ich Ihnen als Erstem ein Projekt mitteilen, das m. E. den Tag seiner Wirksamkeit anbrechen ließe [...]". - Der Sohn des Cellisten Bernhard Cossmann begründete 1904 die "Süddeutschen Monatshefte", die er bis 1933 auch leitete. "1905 trat er vom jüdischen zum katholischen Glauben über. Nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg wandte er sich publizistisch vornehmlich auf der Seite der nationalen Rechten gegen die Kriegsschuldthese und propagierte die Dolchstoßlegende. Trotzdem wurde er als Gegner Hitlers gleich zu Beginn der nationalsozialistischen Diktatur verhaftet. Ein Jahr später freigelassen, lebte er bis 1938 zurückgezogen im Isartal, wurde wieder verhaftet und 1942 im Konzentrationslager Theresienstadt ermordet. Seine bedeutsame publizistische Tätigkeit war von einem kulturellem Nationalismus geprägt, dem es völlig an politischem Verständnis mangelte" (DBE). - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf der "Süddeutschen Monatshefte".
