        The New Machiavelli

      London: John Lane, The Bodley Head,, 1911. Octavo. Original red cloth, title to spine and front cover white, top edge red. Spine faded, a few faint marks to covers, a couple of nicks and spots to fore edge. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, "Reginald Turner, from H. G. Wells. One heart, one mind. Same opinion of A. J. Spender." The recipient, Reginald "Reggie" Turner (1869-1938), was a member Oscar Wilde's circle, who once quipped in response to Maugham's boast of the rarity value of his first editions that it was his second editions which were almost impossible to procure. It is possible that the "A. J. Spender" referred to in the inscription is J. A. Spender (1862-1942), British journalist and editor of the Westminster Gazette from 1896 to 1922, and that Wells has transposed Spender's initials, as seen in another copy inscribed by Wells that we have encountered.

        Large three-quarter length lithographic portrait by Johann Hohlenberg (1881-1960) of the noted Hungarian violinist and conductor playing the violin

      A striking image. Rare. "In 1911 [Telmányi] attracted international attention with his Berlin début, when he gave the first performance in Germany of Elgar's Concerto. Admired for the fluency and vitality of his playing, he also acquired a reputation as a conductor after his début in 1919 at Copenhagen... Telmányi married Anne Marie, younger daughter of Nielsen, in 1918, and eventually settled in Denmark... Telmányi's interest in problems of performing Baroque music led him to bring about the construction of a special violin bow... It was favourably received as a means of playing true chords across the strings softly as well as loudly, avoiding the usual arpeggio effect..." Noël Goodwin in Grove Music Online.. 683 x 450 mm. Printed on light-weight paper laid down to board. Signed by the artist in pencil at lower left. With the names of both the artist (dated April 1915) and the violionist in the stone. Browned; margins slightly abraided with slight loss of paper.

        The New Inferno - With sixteen Drawings by Vernon Hill.

      John Lane - The Bodley Head, London / New York 1911 - Limited Edition. London / New York, John Lane - The Bodley Head, 1911. Quarto. Frontispiece, 145 pages with XVI full page illustrations. Original, illustrated Hardcover. One of only 320 copies printed. Good condition with some stronger signs of external wear. Private inscription on front free endpaper. Vernon Hill (1887–1972), born in Halifax, Yorkshire, England, was a sculptor, lithographer, illustrator and draughtsman. He began his work in print-making and lithography, and branched out into other artistic forms, such as sculpture. He illustrated several works and created etchings. His more notable works were commissions from Sir Edward Maufe for interior and exterior architectural sculptures on Maufe's buildings, including Guildford Cathedral, the Runnymede Memorial and several churches. He died in 1972. Vernon Hill was born in 1887 in Halifax, Yorkshire. He began formal training in print-making at an early age; at the age 13 he was apprenticed to a lithographer. In about 1908, at the age of 21, Hill moved to London and took up poster illustration, working under John Hassall, a poster designer and illustrator. From 1909 to 1914 Hill received commissions for work as an illustrator on various projects. He created Art Nouveau illustrations for Stephen Phillips' The New Inferno in 1911 and for Richard Pearse Chope's Ballads Weird and Wonderful the following year. In 1912 one of his works was exhibited at the Royal Academy. His etchings were described by Campbell Fine Art as follows: "The distinctive allegorical etchings of Vernon Hill are all now scarce. His highly evocative work appears to have evolved entirely independently from the trends of his time, although overtones of the mysticism which so influenced Frederick Carter and Austin Osman Spare can be traced in some of his works." His most notable work as a sculptor is to be seen on various buildings by Sir Edward Maufe, who regularly commissioned Hill. Some of Hill's finest work can be seen at Guildford Cathedral in Guildford, Surrey. Apart from the reliefs on the south door entrance he carved the angels on the sedilia inside the cathedral, as well as the tongues of flame on the pulpit and lectern. He also carved the arms of Bishop Greig over the inside of the sacristy door and the figure of Saint Ursula over the inside of St Ursula’s Porch. At the east door of the south porch (on either side of the central buttress pier in the south transept) are two magnificent bronze doors set under two arches which feature Vernon Hill’s reliefs. These are depictions of various occupations, of both men and women. The men’s occupations are on the right-hand door and include sowing, woodcutting, fishing, hunting, shepherding and ploughing; on the left-hand door are depicted women's traditional occupations including milking, spinning, and teaching.

        Photograph Album Documenting an American Actor's Tour of Southeast Asia

      China, Japan, Burma, Malaysia, and India, 1911. Photograph Album. Very Good. The album measures 8" x 6" and contains 52 pages with approximately 130 photographs of varying sizes. The photographs are in nice shape as are the album pages, however most of the album leaves have cleanly separated from the binding. The album documents John Wilmuth Merkyl's participation in a theatrical tour of Southeast Asia during 1911. Early in his career, Merkyl (sometimes spelled Merkel) was an actor in operettas and later became a popular early silent movie star. When Merkyl compiled this album, he was touring with the Bandman Theater Company (owned by Maurice E. Bandmann, an American expatriate from Montana) in one of its troupe's circuits through Asia where it owned a number of theaters. Although Merkyl's name does not appear in this album, it comes from the estate of one of his descendents and contains several photographs of him as a young man. Most of the photographs are vernacular, however a few are commercial. The images include members of the troupe, theaters (Bombay, Rangoon, Kuala Lampur, Singapore, Tokyo, Osaka), hotels (Albany Hotel in Calcutta, Minto Mansions in Rangoon, the Royal Selangor), the Indian Coronation Ceremony (Durbar) for King George V and Queen Mary, tourist sights and scenes (temples, gardens, city streets, countryside), transportation (sedan chairs, rickshaws, junks, sampans, trains, oxcarts, donkeys), severed heads, children, markets, soldiers, buildings (pagodas, thatched huts, a cockfight), an impromptu performance on a ship, and more. A unique record of theatrical entertainment during the heyday of the British Empire.

Kalender eingebundener OBrosch. - Mühsam, (1878 - 1934), lebte seit 1901 als freier Schriftsteller in Berlin und München. Er stand u.a. in Verbindung zum Friedrichshagener Dichterkreis um die Brüder Hart und schloß sich in München der literarischen Bohème an. Von Gustav Landauer und den Ideen Michail A. Bakunins sowie Pjotr A. Kropotkins beeinflußt, arbeitete er für kritische Zeitschriften (u.a. "Simplicissmus", "Gesellschaft" und "Aktion") und schrieb satirische Chansons für Münchner Kabaretts. 1911-14 und 1918/19 gab er die Monatsschrift "Kain. Zeitschrift für Menschenrecht" heraus, in der er nur eigene Beiträge veröffentlichte. Im Ersten Weltkrieg entwickelte er sich zum überzeugten Pazifisten und verbüßte wegen Kriegsdienstverweigerung sechs Monate Festungshaft. Neben Landauer und Ernst Toller gehörte er 1918/19 zu den führenden Köpfen der Bayerischen Räterepublik und wurde nach deren Sturz zu 15 Jahren Haft verurteilt. 1924 vorzeitig entlassen, konzentrierte er sich als Herausgeber der anarchistischen Zeitschrift "Fanal" (1926-31) vor allem auf die Weimarer Klassenjustiz und die faschistische Gefahr. Noch am Tag des Reichstagsbrandes (27.2.1933) wurde M. verhaftet und 16 Monate später ermordet. Obgleich die Gedichte, Dramen (u.a. Staatsräson, 1928) und Essays keine eindeutige politische Zuordnung Mühsams erlauben, belegen sie doch sein bündnispolitisches Ziel einer parteiübergreifenden Einigung aller Kräfte im Kampf gegen den Kapitalismus. Zum Chronisten seiner Epoche wurde er durch seine postum veröffentlichte Autobiographie "Namen und Menschen. Unpolitische Erinnerungen" (1949). (DBE) - So komplett sehr selten!

        Gilead Balm: Knight Errant His Adventures in Search of The Truth.

      T. Fisher Unwin, London 1911 - 8vo. 320pp. Publisher's deep red cloth titled in gilt to spine and front board. An exceptionally clean and handsome copy, minor bumping to extremities, otherwise pretty damn lovely. Internally clean, black and red title page, clean and fresh, illustrated throughout by Cyrus Cuneo (father of Terence, and frankly way more artist than your average detective story needs). A collection of deft mysteries, described as "Quests" in keeping with the knight errantry and to differentiate from a surfeit of "Cases", "Affairs" and "Adventures" that ran to four editions in the year of publication, no less. Capes is actually deserving of a bit of a revival, he wrote enough to stock a small shop and much of it is now completely forgotten, which is a bit of a shame:"He was standing in the close proximity of penny gaffs and penny dreadfuls, of the indigenous coster and the cosmopolitan flat-catcher, of Broker's shops, Sunday trading, chronic drunkenness, buffetted faces and vice in its most sodden aspect."It has to be pointed out that this effect can be duplicated by visiting any reputable book fair. Scarce, attractive and cool, something we should all aspire to. mh [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed "P Mascagni" to an unidentified impresario in Vienna, addressed "Mio Caro."

      - 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Rome, October 8, [1]908. In black ink. On stationery with "Corso Vitt. Eman. 154. Telefono Interprov. 458. Per telegrammi: Mascagni, Roma" printed in red at upper left. In Italian (with translation). Mascagni responds to a proposal to write a "true and authentic" operetta. He likes the idea, but would encounter difficulties "of the moral-artistic order," and especially with his publishers, Choudens and Sonzogno. As indicated by his use of "tu," Mascagni and his correspondent were on familiar terms."But there is still a material difficulty, represented in my contracts with the publishers Sonzogno in Milan and Choudens in Paris, who will not want to adjust [their contracts] if they knew I worked for an impresario from Vienna before having delivered (as per contract) the operas that I must write for them. As you've seen I haven't spoken of monetary interests. but profits have never been a difficulty for the closing of my [business] deals."Slightly worn; creased at folds. Together with: A postcard photograph of 5 gentlemen on a street corner dated Paris 1911 on mount: Mascagni, the music publisher Edoardo Sonzogno, the writer Gabriele d'Annunzio and two unidentified others. Mascagni, distinguished as both a composer and conductor, is perhaps best-known for his opera Cavalleria rusticana, which "was enormously successful from its first performance at the Costanzi in Rome in 1890. From then on Mascagni spent the rest of his long career treating a wide variety of subjects. His next opera, L'amico Fritz (1891), consolidated his success with Roman audiences, and revealed his lyrical vein. This fluent rustic comedy was successful particularly because melodic vitality - the outstanding merit of Cavalleria - was combined with a more elegant harmonic idiom." By the time this letter was written, Mascagni had also garnered considerable acclaim in Vienna, Paris, and London. Michele Girardi in Grove Music Online.

        Set of Eight National Monetary Commision Volumes

      Washington - National Monetary Commission 1911 - A set of eight scarce volumes printed by the American National Monetary Commission, in uniform binding. Part of a sixty-one volume set. DealingÂwith the banking and economies of EuropeÂprior to theÂFirst World War, the works are particularly interesting given the outbreak of the conflict in the following years, with the mislead and futileÂrivalries held betweenÂvarious nations making a huge impact upon their spending and economies. AlsoÂincluded here is a section onÂJapan, who wereÂthen reeling still from the Russo-Japanese War. An interesting document from an American perspective, and from a position of neutrality that was dearly held in the country before their first intervention in European matters in theÂimminent war. The full list of worksÂincluded here are as follows:Volume V - The National Banking System by Andrew Macfarland Davis, A. D. Noyes and O. M. W. Sprague Volume X - The Reichsbank and Renewel of its CharterVolume XII - The German Bank Inquiry of 1908 Part OneVolume XIII - The German Bank Inquiry of 1908 Part TwoVolume XV - Banking In France and The French Bourse by Andred Liesse, Maurice Patron and E. VidalVolume XVII: Banking in Sweden and Switzerland by A. W. Flux and Julius Landmann Volume XVIII: Banking in Italy, Russia, Austro-Hungary, and Japan by Tito Canovai and Carlo F. Ferraris Volume XIX: Administrative Features Of National Banking Laws and European Fiscal and Postal Savings Systems by J. O. Manson Condition: In uniform cloth binding with gilt detailing. Externally smart, there is minor shelfwear, markings and rubbing to the boards, extremities and backstrips, with some additional wear.

        The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes.

      London: Frederick Warne & Co.,, 1911. Sextodecimo. Original green boards, spine and front board lettered in white, pictorial label with illustration to front cover, pictorial endpapers. 27 colour plates. Contemporary gift inscription to front free endpaper. Boards gently bowed, contents a little cockled. An excellent copy. First edition. The first two printings are believed to be identical. The story of Timmy and Goody Tiptoes is the only Beatrix Potter story apparently set in North America - although this is implicit rather than stated anywhere in the book. All the main animal characters are indigenous to North America: grey squirrels, chipmunks and a "large bear", but the waters are muddied somewhat by the presence of Yellowhammers (or Emberiza citrinella, the birds which sing "Little bita bread and-no-cheese!"), whose range includes Europe and much of Asia but not America.

      Flagstaff: The Coconino Sun, 1911., 1911. First edition. First edition. 13" x 20" newspaper issued by The Coconino Sun of Flagstaff, Arizona, Friday, May 19, 199, Volume XXVIII, Number 25. This newspaper is a descendent of the Arizona Daily Star, Tombstone's Daily Nugget, Arizona Daily Sun, the Mohave Miner, The Coconino Sun was named by Clarkson M. Funston, its editor, to coincide with the founding of Coconino County, with Flagstaff as the county seat. However six months later the name of the newspaper was again changed to the Coconino Weekly Sun. In 1896 attorney Jerome Edwin Jones, owner of the rival newspaper, the Flagstaff Democrat, purchased the Coconino Weekly Sun and merged the two newspapers into the Flagstaff Sun - Democrat. Then due to Flagstaff's nickname being the Skylight City, Jones once again changed the name of the newspaper on November 25, 1896, to the Skylight Kicker, as he promised "to kick higher, quicker, truer, harder and more than any newspaper in the West." However on January 15, 1898, Clarkson M. Funston re-purchased the newspaper and changed the masthead back to the Coconino Sun, which then became the area's dominant newspaper. The newspaper carries news pertinent to northern Arizona and continued to be published into 1978. This newspaper issue being offered for sale is a weekly which was published each Friday of the week and this copy was published on Friday, May 19, 1911. Its contents include news of the territory, news of local citizens and their various journeys and events, the murder of a prominent official, Base Ball Dope, church directory, Probate Court notices, range and market news, advertising, educational articles, lumbering, railroad news, and everything that was fit to print. The importance of this issue is that it shows 72 ranches with over 125 of their brands on cattle and horses. The ranches are from the communities of Canyon Diablo, Ash Fork, Flagstaff, Williams, Cornville, Winslow, Camp Verde, Dewey, Seligman, Maine, Sedona, and Jerome. The six pages are separated and in very good condition.

      Copenhagen: Gyldendalske Boghandel, Nordisk Forlag; London, William Heinemann, , 1911. Journeys and Studies in Bokhara (With a Chapter on my Voyage on the Amu Darya to Khiva.) Large octavo. Original plum cloth, title gilt to front board and spine. Large folding coloured map in band inside lower board, numerous half-tone illustrations from the author's own photographs to the text, many full-page. A little rubbed, the spine lettering a touch oxidised, judicious restoration at the head of the spine, light foxing to the prefatory matter and fore-edge, else very good. First Edition. This copy inscribed by the author on the title page. Highly detailed and well-illustrated study of the region by the Secretary of the Royal Danish Geographical Society, drawing on the material accumulated during his command of the First and Second Danish Pamir Expeditions, 1896-97, 1898-99, from which he brought back more than 700 artefacts of ethnographic and scientific significance now at the Danish National Museum in Copenhagen. Olufsen was fluent in Russian and Usbegic, so he was able to conduct his own interviews with natives, employing only a Tajik interpreter with whom he conversed in Ottoman Turkish. In Bokhara the travellers "were welcomed as guests" by the Emir, lengthening their stay, with the result that the present study "can be used as a work of reference on the details of the region's architecture, archaeology, customs, religions, traditional costume, and for its profuse illustration from photographs of ethnographic and handcrafted pieces, monuments and local peoples" (Gorshenina, Explorateurs en Asie Centrale. Voyageurs et aventuriers de Marco Polo à Ella Maillart, pp. 225, cataloguer's translation). Quite a fragile production, the thin cloth, heavy text-block, and large folding map all contributing to the frail condition of copies usually encountered, this, lightly and skilfully restored, is a very superior copy, and very uncommon indeed inscribed.
