      02 - Greenwich - The Society for Nautical Research, 1911 Book. Fine. Hardcover. 88 volumes, bound as 59, of theinternational journal of the Society for Nautical Research; an exceptional private run from 1911-2003. The journal has been published since 1911, and is recognised as the leading journal for its subject of naval and maritime history. The European Reference Index for the Humanitiesclassifies itas an INT1 journal (the highest),meaning it enjoys internationally recognised significanceand influence among scholars and esearchers, and is regularly cited by academics all over the world. Covering all periods from pre-hisory to the modern world, this represents an unparalled resource of information on maritime and naval matters. Each volume is replete with illustrations, often including maps, paintings, photographs, and tables. Fold-out illustrations can be found in volumes 4, 5, 11, 14, 16, 17, 20, 18, 22, 25, 26,36, 54, 59, 63, 66, 67, 68, and 70. Many of the early volumes include question and answer sections from readers appended. Many issues are demarcated into their separate quarterly parts, which are bound together with their separate title pages. Volumes 22 and 87/88 have the original wrappers of these quarterly sections bound in. Volumes 75/6 and 77/8 have adverts from the publisher bound in. In the case of 75/76 they are seperately paginated. As a previously private collection, this set is free from any library markings; a run of this length in this unmarked condition is very scarce indeed. Volumes 1-11, 13-14, and 16 are Kraus reprints in the original cloth. Volumes 12 and 15 are the original works in various bindings. Volumes 17-18 and 25-88 are bound in pairs, and along with the single volumes are in the original publisher's cloth. The exceptions are volumes 19, 21, and 24, which are in half morocco and like volumes 12 and 15 are clearly of different provenance. Volume 'XXXVI' is also in a subtly different cloth binding, though it still appears original. Nearly a century's worth of study into maritime and naval affairs, handsomely presented in a remarkably uniform and attractive run. Condition: Volumes 1-11, 13-14, & 16 are Kraus reprints in full cloth. Volume 15 is in full morocco. The 1933, 35, and 38 volumes are in half morocco. All other volumes are in the original cloth with paper covered boards. The Kraus reprints are externally excellent, with almost no discernable wear, and internally are clean and bright and firmly bound. Volume 12 is externally smart though with a little general wear and some light marking to the boards. It has a contemporary ink inscription to the front free endpaper. It is somewhat spotted for the first and last few pages as normal, and firmly bound. Volume15 is a litle rubbed at the extremities and head and tail of the spine. Internally it is mildly age toned but otherwise clean and firmly bound. The 1933, 35, and 38 volumes are externally smart, though with some light rubbing at the extremities and to the spine. The 1933 volume has some small damage to the spine, affecting the gilt date. Internally they are a little more age toned but generally clean, and firmly bound. Their foredges are a little spotted. Of the other volumes, they are mostly externally very smart indeed. Volume 22 has a spotted foredge. Volumes 35 and 45/6 have some marking to their boards. Internally, generally remarkably clean and bright. Volume 20 has some spotting internally. Volumes 87/88 have water damage from page 382 onwards. All are firmly bound. Krauss reprints overall: FINE. Volume 12 overall: VERY GOOD. Volume 15 overall: VERY GOOD. 1933,35,38 volumes overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. All other volumes: NEAR FINE.

Quarto, publisher's blue cloth, blue pictorial endpapers, top edges gilt. $3000.First edition set of Miller's famous and important 10-volume photographic history of the Civil War, containing "thousands of scenes photographed 1861-65, with text by many special authorities.""This mammoth work". a necessary part of any civil war library," contains contributions from over 39 eminent individuals, including academicians, President William H. Taft, and veteran officers of both Confederate and Union forces, many of whom wrote from personal experience. A number of the photographs, previously unpublished, are from the collections of private individuals, including the extensive Eldridge Collection of Mathew Brady Civil War photographs, "easily five times larger than that of any contemporary" (Everitt). "Zealous in their work, often regardless of danger, and at all times handicapped by the vexing difficulties of the photographic process of that day," Brady and his assistants "carried their cameras to every scene that promised an interesting picture," capturing "scenes of actual conflict, others of places devastated by gunfire, of troops on the march or in bivouac, and of individual officers and men" (DAB). Volume X is the first issue (marked "1-Ed." in bottom margin of page 323). Eicher 771. Nicholson, 516. Interiors clean; small closed tear to map in Volume III. Several inner paper hinges expertly reinforced, one volume recased with original endpapers preserved, original cloth bindings unusually clean and bright with only occasional light soiling. An exceptionally good full first edition set of this important photographic work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Book on the Horse. Handbook for each Horse-Master, Breeder, Horse Owner and Horse Lover].

      Russkoe knizhnoe tovarischestvo "Deiatel" S.-Peterburg 1911 - Octavo (26 x 17.5 cm). VIII pp., including half title and title, 744, VIII pp., with 8 plates; 642, XXII pp., with 8 plates and 1 double page table, with multiple illustrations in text; marginal brown spotting to some pages, occasional inscriptions and underlines in pencil, corner of pp. 223-224 in vol 1 torn affecting text. Original publisher's half calf over marbled boards, gilt lettering to flat spines; slightly rubbed, corners bumped, each vol. of slightly different colour. One of the most influential pre-revolutionary Russian horse books, here in its third edition, revised and enlarged. Count Sergey Urusov (1854–1915), a recognized specialist and an honorary Chairman of the Russian Society of Horse Breeding, spent more than a quarter of a century researching Russian horse breeds and establishing the treatments and conditions required for the successful breeding. Surprisingly, there was hardly any substantial scientific literature in the Russian language available on the subject, which led Urusov to a decision to produce the present work. His initial idea was to simply translate a popular German work titled "Das Buch vom Pferde" by Carl Wrangel, which provided information on all the aspects of horse care, breeding and racing. As he progressed with his work, Urusov started to realize that German text was not be fully applicable in the conditions of Russian climate, local soil and infrastructure. The Urusov's work proved to be extremely successful and useful exactly because the author applied his experience and knowledge and adapted the text to the local conditions and specificity of the Russian breeds.

        Henry Bing: Mona Lisa II (Originalzeichnung)

      1911 - Buntstift, Tusche und Deckweiß auf Karton 27,6 x 36,6 cm Rechts oben signiert Veröffentlicht:  Simplicissimus. Jahrgang 16 (1911), Heft 24, Seite 389 Text: „Die Franzosen haben mit genialem Scharfsinn erkannt, daß nur Deutsche den frechen Raub im Louvre begangen haben konnten. Die Attentäter sind Sachsen und haben den Diebstahl auf die denkbar einfachste Weise verübt.“ Biografie: Henry Bing (1888 Paris - 1965 Paris). Der französische Lithograf, Zeichner und Maler Henry Bing zählt bereits mit 17 Jahren zu den Mitarbeitern der beiden Münchner Zeitschriften Jugend und Simplicissimus. Innerhalb eines Jahrzehnts werden sie fast 900 Werke von ihm veröffentlichen und seinen Namen weithin bekannt machen. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, dass sich keinerlei Informationen zu Bings künstlerischer Ausbildung erhalten haben. Ab 1905 lebt Bing in der Kunstmetropole München und findet als Stammgast im Café Stefanie, einem beliebten Treffpunkt moderner literarischer und künstlerischer Kreise, Anschluss an die Schwabinger Bohème. Neben den Einnahmen aus der Publikation seiner Karikaturen in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus lebt er vom Verkauf der Originale. Diesen übernehmen ab 1912 die renommierten Kunsthändler Franz Josef Brakl und Hans Goltz. Der Erste Weltkrieg, den Bing aufgrund seiner französischen Staatsbürgerschaft in deutscher Haft verbringt, bereitet seiner freien Künstlerexistenz ein jähes Ende. 1920 kehrt er nach Paris zurück und handelt fortan als Galerist mit Werken von Henry Rousseau, Robert Delaunay, Amedeo Modigliani sowie Chaim Soutine. Bings frühe Beiträge in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus orientieren sich stilistisch und inhaltlich an den Karikaturen älterer Kollegen, vor allem denen von Rudolf Wilke. Bald entwickelt er jedoch eine eigene Handschrift und entdeckt die Außenseiter der Gesellschaft als Thema. Vagabunden und Bettler, Tagelöhner und Fabrikarbeiter, Dienstmägde und Marktfrauen, aber auch Künstler, Literaten und Vertreter der Demi-Monde, oft angesiedelt in der Welt der Kaffeehäuser und Varietés, werden zu Bings bevorzugten Motiven. Seine meist auf wenige Figuren reduzierten Szenen bringt er vorzugsweise mit Tusche und Farbstift zu Papier, wobei er die physiognomische Erscheinung der Modelle stark vereinfacht, um den jeweils dahinterstehenden Menschentypus offenzulegen. Hierbei bleibt stets das empathische Auge des Künstlers spürbar. Denn ungeachtet der satirischen Stoßrichtung der Darstellung, die in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus durch eine Textpointe zusätzlich unterstrichen wird, ist Bing nie verletzend. Vielmehr wirbt er um Verständnis und Sympathie für jene, die das Schicksal an den Rand der Gesellschaft gedrängt hat. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Premiers Paysages. Les Leçons de Choses du Petit Coloriste

      Henri Laurens, Editeur, Paris 1911 - First edition of Maurice Denis's iconic modernist coloring book, Premiers Paysages. A founding member of the group of French painters known as Les Nabis, Denis was invited by editor Henri Laurens to contribute to a popular children's art series, Les Leçons de Choses du Petit Coloriste. In response, during the summer of 1911, Denis produced a series of dreamlike French landscapes. "Petits coloristes" can lose themselves in painting scenes of villages and mountains, countryside and seashore, with captions by Denis that provide a wry running commentary on his creative process: "Ce n'est pas difficile de faire des maisons quand on ne fait pas toutes les fenêtres." (Denis even reminds his young readers to keep their paints separate and their brushes clean.) The quality of these vibrant landscapes, which exemplify Denis's famous definition of painting as "a flat surface covered with colors assembled in a certain order," was immediately recognized. In 1912, the bibliophilic society "Les XX" commissioned a deluxe edition of twenty signed copies, featuring an extra plate and multiple impressions of each image. This first edition of Premiers Paysages, while less lavishly produced, reflects the book's original identity as an inexpensive, ephemeral activity book, and is extremely scarce in any condition. A clean near-fine copy. Quarto, original color pictorial paper boards, sixteen staple-bound pages. Includes seven color plates and seven matching uncolored plates, with two additional uncolored plates reproducing the color images printed on the boards. Light general foxing and toning.
