        Das Staatsrecht des Deutschen Reiches.

      Tübingen, Verlag von J. C. B. Mohr (Paul Siebeck), 1911-14. 5., neubearb. Aufl. 4 Bde. Gr.-8vo. (1:) XII, 532; (2:) III, 318; (3:) III, 524; (4:) IV, 670 S. Zeitgenössische Halblederbände mit Lederecken. (Ebde. etw. berieben und bestoßen). Letzte Auflage des großen Werkes von Laband! - Laband (1838-1918) war der führende Staatsrechtler des deutschen Kaiserreichs, seit 1864 a.o. Prof., ab 1866 o. Prof. in Königsberg, ab 1872 dann bis zu seiner Emeritierung Prof. in Straßburg. - Das vorliegende Hauptwerk erschien zuerst in den Jahren 1876-1882. Die Gründung des Norddeutschen Bundes 1866 und der sog. preußische Verfassungskonflikt brachten Laband zur intensiven Beschäftigung mit dem Staatsrecht, das eigentlich erst durch Labands methodischer Begründung auf rechtspositivistischen Grundsätzen als solches bezeichnet wird. Er entwickelte seine Methode in Anlehnung an das Privatrecht und wollte die juristische Betrachtung des Staates von naturrechtlichen und philosophischen Spekulationen befreien. Mit dem vorliegenden Werk gilt Laband somit als der Begründer des modernen Staatsrechts, für das er (gemeinsam mit Felix Stoerk und Georg Jellinek) mit dem von ihm 1886 geschaffenen \"Archiv für öffentliches Recht\" zudem eine wirkungsmächtige institutionelle Plattform schuf.

      London, Lee Warner Medicae Societatis Librarium, 1911 - Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlags-Handeinband: flexibles Ganzpergament GPgt / Pgt im Format 17 x 25 cm mit Kopfgolddschnitt, Rücken- und Deckeltitel in Goldprägung sowie Zeichenband, unbeschnittener Buchblock mit grünen Schließbändern. Eines von 1000 numerierten Exemplaren auf klanghartem Büttenkarton der Ricardi Press mit entsprechendem Wasserzeichen. Hervorragendes Druckerzeugnis in der Nachfolge von William Morris und der Arts- and Crafts-Bewegung. 4Bl., 318 Seiten, mit Pressensignet in Gründruck. Expl.Nr.120. - Exemplar der Vorzugsausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung (Einband minimal fleckig, sonst sehr gut). - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

Tchaikovsky's materpiece based on Pushkin's 'Pikovaya dama' was Benois' favorite opera.

These illustrations dating from a decade before obviously influenced the 1921 production. Gubar 100. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Important Autograph Letter about Franck and "False Genius"

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A fascinating and important autograph letter from the French composer, organist, pianist, and conductor to an unidentified friend, revealing his opinions on the music of César Franck and on the nature of true and false genius. Writing on February 6, 1911 from Algiers, where five of his operas had been staged that winter, Saint-Saëns begins his letter by mentioning his educational background: "Did I tell you that I was never in the piano class at the Conservatory, where my teacher [Camille-Marie] Stamaty was not a professor?" After recommending piano etudes by Josefy and Phillipp, he goes on to dissuade his correspondent from learning pieces by Franck (who had died in 1890): "Seeing as the music of Franck is causing you so much trouble to learn, then don't learn it - who's forcing you? In general, I find Franck's music as boring as it is worthy... An artist whose work never laughs is not a genius." Franck, according to Saint-Saëns, is one of "a clan of false geniuses who are poisoning our era." This group, in which Saint-Saëns includes artists Pierre Puvis de Chavannes and Auguste Rodin, do not "dare to descend from their pedestals." A rather damning condemnation of a composer for whom he had once advocated, the letter also shows Saint-Saëns' sense of humor, as he finishes: "Now, if I am talking nonsense, keep it to yourself. For I don't know that Michelangelo ever showed much gaiety; but who would dream of calling him boring?"<br style="">On the letterhead of the Excelsior Hotel, Algiers, dated February 6, 1911. 2 pp. Creases, one small tear on the horizontal crease, some wear to the edges, and light toning; overall in very good condition. 8 x 10.5 inches (21 x 27 cm).  Full translation as follows:<br>"My dear friend,  It seems to me that I forgot to talk to you about the piano. Did I tell you that I was never in the piano class at the Conservatory, where my teacher Stamaty was not a professor? I only ever won the organ prize. -- Regarding the way to acquire a brilliant technique, I recommend Josefy's exercises, published by Schirmer in New York; there are also those by Philipp which are excellent (Paris-Durand.) But all these exercises are intended for those who already have talent. For others, there are the old Czerny exercises which are always good.Seeing as the music of Franck is causing you such trouble to learn, then don't learn it - who's forcing you? In general, I find Franck's music as boring as it is worthy; it's like those honest people whose company would put you off from honesty. I was for it when people were unjustly against it, when people were disdaining it, but now that everyone wants to make it a work of genius, I don't [like?] it any more. An artist whose work never laughs is not a genius. César, along with Puvis de Chavannes and Rodin, is one of the clan of false geniuses who are poisoning our era. They are not Homers, Virgils, Beethovens, Mozarts; even Bach knew how to suit the occasion. The true geniuses know that even if they fail, they [will rise again???;] the false do not dare to descend from their pedestals.Now, if I am talking nonsense, keep it to yourself. For I don't know that Michelangelo ever showed much gaiety; but who would dream of calling him boring?Yours, C. St-S"

First published in 1910, the Phantom's obsessive and consuming love for the beautiful young chorus girl Christine has captivated readers, film goers and musical theater fanatics for over 100 years. The Phantom of the Opera has become the source for numerous adaptations, including the 1925 film starring Lon Chaney and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning musical.

        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 descendants 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.

Like her readers, the author was quite taken with the jovial character she had created and wrote multiple sequels to this first installment of what would become a beloved children's series.. Illus. by Claus, M.A. (May Austin); Claus, William A.J. (William Anton Joseph). 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Carteggio d'amore inviato da Zuccoli ad Amalia Guglielminetti tra l'11 settembre 1911 e il 14 novembre 1911

      Lotto di 26 lettere, un telegramma ed una piccola foto. - Assieme di 26 lettere, in formato in-8 su carta intestata ''Il Giornale di Venezia'', 3 dal ''Grand Hotel Rome'', 1 ''Caffè Nazionale, Peroni Aragno. Roma''; buste conservate che recano al verso indirizzo ''Amalia Guglieminetti. Corso Francia 1bis. Torino''. Appassionante ed inedito carteggio che permette di ripercorrere l'apparentemente ignota storia d'amore tra uno dei romanzieri più in voga all'inizio del XX secolo ed Amalia Guglielminetti. Dalle missive, tutte dello Zuccoli, si evince che i due si erano incontrati nel mese di giugno e a partire da settembre iniziano un quasi quotidiano scambio epistolare. Le prime missive, in cui il letterato e giornalista, chiama la Guglielminetti ''Susanna vestita'' fanno trasparire già il desiderio che l'uomo prova. Diventano sempre più esplicite, fino a vere e proprie crisi di gelosia quando al donna si dice non più casta. Tra le fitte, lunghe ed appassionate pagine si leggono tentativi di incontri e programmi per evitare di farsi riconoscere. Concordano un appuntamento per il 5 novembre a Milano: cinque lunghi giorni di liaison amorosa cui seguono solo più tre affettuose lettere dell'uomo ed un telegramma, non sappiamo se per la fine della relazione o per perdita della documentazione. Tra le righe, molto ben scritte, si ha notizia di alcuni lavori letterari dei due, si fa riferimento a Gozzano, ma la cosa che colpisce di più sono i tempi e i modi di una relazione amorosa tra due personalità di cultura al principio del XX secolo. Luciano Zuccoli, pseudonimo di Luciano von Ingenheim (1868 ? 1929), fu scrittore, giornalista e romanziere svizzero naturalizzato italiano. Nell'autobiografia, pubblicata nel 1924, si definiva come «riottoso e prepotente, bevitore e libertino, beffardo e cinico.» Carattere ben evidenziato in questo carteggio privato. Diresse dal 1903 al 1912 il Giornale e la Gazzetta di Venezia, per trasferirsi poi a Roma. La Biblioteca Civica di Gorizia nel 2000 acquistò un corpus costituito da trenta lettere inviate dallo Zuccoli tra il 1911 e il 1913, che testimonia la conclusione della relazione che ebbe con la Guglielminetti.

        Collections Georges Hoentschel. Introduction et Notices. Volume I: Emaux du XIIe au XVe Siecle; Volume 2: Ivoires, Orfevrerie Religieuse, Pierres (2 Volumes)

      Librairie Centrale des Beaux-Arts, Paris 1911 - Both volumes: 3/4 burgundy leather with gilt spine lettering; marbled boards. Burgundy cloth portfolio flaps built in and attached to back covers. Contents of each volume placed within portfolio. Vol 1: Title material, three bi-fold letterpress leaves with 8 pp. prefatory text, and the list of 50 plates; 50 single, color plates, matted on card stock; each preceded with a page of annotation on letterpress paper. Vol 2: Title material and bifold list of plates; 44 color plates, matted on card stock, each preceded with a page of annotation on letterpress paper. Oversize (elephant folios) and heavy and will require extra postage. (30 pounds / 13.6 kilos). Georges Hoentschel (1855 - 1915) was a Parisan architect, designer, ceramicist and collector. His collection was bought by J.P. Morgan, who subsequently donated it to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where it became the core of the museum's European Decorative Arts Collection. This beautiful set, created under Morgan's direction, is from a labor-intensive, limited edition of 100 copies. The first volume features enamels; the second, ivories, gold, and gems. The plates in Volume 1 are hand-tinted in rich, vivid colors, many with gold leaf. The plates in Volume 2 (since they are ivories and gold objects) are more subdued with lovely gravures and subtle shading. Every plate is accompanied by a full, letterpress sheet with a complete annotation of the image. All of these stunning plates are suitable for framing and would enhance any decor. Vol 1: Art museum ex-library with minimal markings; donor bookplate inside front cover (one museum to another) and call sticker on spine. Plates clean, bright, unmarked. Small stain on the left edge of the title page; crease to margin/corner of annotation for Plate 14; light rubbing to leather at front hinge.
