        Spiridon Le Muet (spiridon The Mute)

      Paris, France: Publications Jules Rouff Et Cie. Very Good+. 0. Trade Edition. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; This copy was published between 1910 and 1913 (based on the publisher's information). This book is an oversized hardback book. The book is in Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The spine ends and corners have some light bumping, rubbing and beginning fraying. The top spine end has several small nicks and beginning tears. The bottom front spine joint has an inch long tear to the cloth. The front book cover is heavily illustrated in gilt, green, and black. The text pages are clean and bright. The endpapers have toning to all edges. The front hinge has just started. Top edge gilt (TEG). "Grousset was born in Corte, Corsica, and studied medicine before commencing a journalistic career. In 1869 he began working for the weekly newspaper La Marseillaise, writing pro-revolutionary articles. ... He returned to France after the 1880 amnesty, becoming involved in literature and physical culture, but eventually returning to politics and, in 1893, becoming a Socialist Deputy for the 12th arrondissement of Paris. Like Jules Verne, he was another discovery of publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel. He "collaborated" with Verne on Les Cinq Cent Millions de la Begum (1879) , L'Étoile du Sud (1884) and L'Épave du Cynthia (1885). Some scholars[who? ] believe that these works were based on manuscripts written by Grousset and rewritten by Verne at Hetzel's request. " "and finally Spiridon le Muet [Spiridon The Mute] (1907) , a remarkable novel about a human-sized, intelligent ant. The character of Spiridon, depicted as a non-human alien, gifted with great knowledge, an insatiable scientific curiosity but no human feelings or emotions, the victim of mankind's petty jealousies and racial fears, is a striking departure from the Vernian influence that permeated the rest of Laurie's works." .

        THE VOICE OF SPRING - Alma-Tadema, 1910.

      THE VOICE OF SPRINGHeliogravure vervaardigd in 1910 door Arthur Tooth & Sons naar het schilderij (Opus CCCXCVII) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 34,8 x 83,5 cm.Het is nog fris op deze heldere ochtend. Gezeten op een halfronde marmeren bank drukt ze haar gewaad tegen zich aan. De anemonen in de weide suggereren dat het nog vroeg in de lente is. Ze kijkt dromerig, mediterend op The Voices of Spring: lachende, spelende kinderen en de tonen van een lier op de achtergrond. Op een marmeren altaar doen de geuren en het geknister van brandende dennenappels geofferd voor Bacchus, mooie herinneringen herleven.Misschien was het het gedicht ?The Voice of Spring? uit 1890 van schrijfster Mary Howitt, dat Alma-Tadema heeft doen inspireren dit werk te maken:Turn thine eyes to Earth and Godfor there the Spring has given;clothed the Earth, and cleared skies:for thy pleasure of thy food,pour thy soul in gratitude. Prijs: ? 3.150,- (incl. lijst).

        Collection of seven notebooks chronicling the Great War and one mans role in keeping the Royal Navy at sea.

      Six volumes in note books blocked to upper board "D.278, Measurement Book" 8vo and a pocket game book also 8vo. Written in pencil in a minute but very readable hand. Volume one is dated 1910, the anonymous author could have been a Petty Officer on the cruiser HMS Intrepid at the time she was being converted to a Minelayer. The author uses the notebook for a very detailed summary of the work involved, the ships company (including which ships the ratings had come from) very precise time sheets for individuals, lists of stores required - ticked off presumably as they were acquired, lists of accidents and their causes and a number engineering diagrams. At the close is a summary of the Refit. Five further volumes covering the years 1915 to 1918, detail the course of the war in great detail with extensive notes, with details of daily events, losses, facts, parliamentary debates reports and opinions. One of the most interesting aspects of his coverage is his grasp of the war on all fronts and a keen interest in what the German newspapers are reporting. He is sceptical of both sides and generally pessimistic about the outcome. "The present government consists of the most reactionary members of both parties. As usual the war is being used by the ruling classes as a means of enriching themselves at the expense of the poorest - 12-715". He gives a reasoned account for not volunteering for the army and clearly sees that conscription will be introduced. The books also include details of his own wartime activities - he would seem to have been a civilian worker in the ship yard at Dover working on the ships of the Dover patrol. The volume 1916-17 has details of work carried out on the ships of the Patrol as well as the detailed daily coverage of the war including the casualty lists and economic statistics. A remarkable survey of the war from an intelligent well informed working class man. The seventh book is a detailed analysis of daily casualty figures - was his choice of the game book coincidence or a deliberate ironic choice. Glimpses of his interests come through with book lists and records (headed by Wagner). The books are a fascinating read and deserve a detail study. Very good some dust-soiling to the original cloth.

Otherwise very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. [Myth and Legend in Literature and Art]. Mythology can refer to the collected myths of a group of people—their collection of stories they tell to explain nature, history, and customs or to the study of such myths. As a collection of explanatory stories, mythology is a vital feature of every culture. Many sources for myths have been proposed, ranging from personification of nature or personification of natural phenomena, to truthful or hyperbolic accounts of historical events to explanations of existing rituals. Although the term is complicated by its implicit condescension, mythologizing is not just an ancient or primitive practice, as shown by contemporary mythopoeia such as urban legends and the expansive fictional mythoi created by fantasy novels and comics. A culture's collective mythology helps convey belonging, shared and religious experiences, behavioral models, and moral and practical lessons. The study of myth dates back to ancient history. Rival classes of the Greek myths by Euhemerus, Plato, and Sallustius were developed by the Neoplatonists, and later revived by Renaissance mythographers. The nineteenth-century comparative mythology reinterpreted myth as a primitive and failed counterpart of science (E. B. Tylor), a "disease of language" (Max Müller), or a misinterpretation of magical ritual (James Frazer). Recent approaches have rejected conflict between the value of myth and rational thought, often viewing myths as expressions to understand general psychological, cultural, or societal truths, rather than as inaccurate historical accounts. In modern society, myth is often regarded as historical or obsolete. Many scholars in the field of cultural studies are now beginning to research the idea that myth has worked itself into modern discourses. Modern formats of communication allow for widespread communication across the globe, thus enabling mythological discourse and exchange among greater audiences than ever before. Various elements of myth can now be found in television, cinema, and video games. (Wikipedia).
