Minor shelfwear, light bumping to spine ends, small spot of discolouration to rear board, a very good copy indeed. A scarce collection of weird tales, a couple of which were published in Wide World Magazine (also home to a couple of scarce bits of Hodgson) and The Idler (similarly the original home of Carnacki, did anyone ever see E. Elliot Stock and W. H. H. in the same room I wonder?). Internally clean, bearing the ownership of E.G. Vawdrey (Elizabeth Glasscott Vawdrey, a rather charming 19th century landscape artist who specialised in Cornish seaside scenes) and a gift inscription to the same on the title page. Frontispiece illustration with tissue guard present. Four plates in all. The stories are very much of an outdoorsy, mountain climbing, arctic expedition gone wrong vein and are briskly written; lots of tweed, plenty of derring do. A remarkably difficult book to lay one's hands on. .

        THE FORTY QUESTIONS OF THE SOUL and THE CLAVIS or KEY

      John M. Watkins, 21 Cecil Court, Charing Cross Road, London 1911 - First impression of the revised edition and first edition thus. Translated by John Sparrow Reissued by C. J. B. With Emendations by D. S. Hehner. ***Illustrated with folding map of Böhme's 'Philosophic Globe'. ***Very good in dark bottle-green cloth-covered boards with gilt titles to spine and front board. Deckled fore-edge and bottom edge of text-block (rough-cut, as called for). Offsetting to front and rear boards. Very faint unobtrusive violet stamp "Presentation Copy" to top of title-page. No inscriptions. Edges of boards slightly rubbed. Head and tail of spine slightly rubbed and creased. Corners of boards rubbed and slightly bumped. Very slight sporadic unobtrusive foxing to prelims. Interior pages clean. Spine tight. Liii prelim-pages plus 310 pages and To The Clavis or Key vi-prelim-pages plus 52 text-pages plus two-page catalogue of the books written by Jacob Boehme to rear. 246mm x 162mm. ***The Forty Questions and the Clavis were the first of Boehme's works published in English by John Sparrow. They appeared together in one volume, quarto, 17.7cm. x 13.7 cm., in the year 1647. The few copies of this volume that have come down to this present day are not exactly identical: they exhibit two different title-pages; one here is reprinted; the other, with the same wording, but not the same type throughout, has the imprint "London, Printed by Matth. Simmons, in the yeare 1647." In the copies exhibiting the latter title-page, also, the piece "To the Earnest Lovers of wisdom" is not included, so far as I am aware. Otherwise all the copies are exactly alike. ***In 1665 Sparrow published a new edition, a duodecimo, 13.5cm. x 8.2cm. This translation differs slightly from the former one, and, strange to say, the 1647 version is, on the whole, the better of the two. ***In the present reprint the 1647 edition has been followed very closely. Occasionally words from the 1665 edition have been preferred; and in three places whole paragraphs have been adopted from it (see pp. 8, 43, 129); not on account of the superiority of the translation, but because the symbols accompanying these paragraphs do not appear in the earlier edition. In these instances I have followed the example of George Ward, the editor of the 18th-century reprint, usually known as "Law's edition," of the Forty Questions.' (Quote from the prefatory note, Purley February 5th, 1911 by C.J.B.). ***Jakob Boehme (Böhme) [575-1624] was a German Christian mystic and theologian whose writings explored the nature of sin, evil and redemption. Boehme thought like the Lutherans that humanity had fallen from a state of divine grace to a state of sin and suffering, that the forces of evil included fallen angels who had rebelled against God, and that God's goal was to restore the world to a state of grace. However unlike the Lutherans he rejected "sola fide". Also he described the Fall as a necessary stage in the evolution of the Universe. His theology is difficult, based on a mystical vision which he reinterpreted and reformulated. Poets such as John Milton, Ludwig Tieck, Novalis and William Blake were inspired by Böhme's writings. Coleridge, in his Biographia Literaria, writes of Böhme with admiration. Böhme was highly thought of by the German philosophers Baader, Schelling and Schopenhauer. Hegel stated that Böhme was "the first German philosopher. C. S. Lewis and Jorge Luis Borges were also influenced by Jacob Boehme. First impression of the revised edition and first edition thus in its original boards in very nice, complete collectable condition (including folding map of the Philosophic Globe). **Of interest to collectors and scholars of rare esoteric and philosophical antiquarian titles and the writings of Jacob Boehme. ***Scarce.***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Alcune firme di possesso ms. alla prima carta bianca. Esemplare marginoso e ben conservato. Si tratta della prima rara edizione nella tiratura di soli 500 esemplari numerati (ns. n. 216) di uno dei volumi iconograficamente più interessanti del '900 italiano. Cfr. Pallottino "Storia dell'illustr. italiana": "I versi erano stati composti tra il 1899 e il 1902, i disegni rappresentavano l'esuberante ed ironica esposizione del più macabro ed allucinato repertorio decorativo simbolista, mentre la mente era quella del pittore, scrittore e illustratore autodidatta Antonio Rubino (1880 - 1964) che, laureatosi in giurisprudenza mettendo in versi le materie d'esame, fu tra i fondatori del 'Corriere dei Piccoli'. Scrisse e illustrò una quarantina di libri per l'infanzia e diresse i principali periodici per ragazzi".

        Autographed Musical Manuscript (from the Federico Fellini Film "Le Notti Di Cabiria")

      Original manuscript. An early SIGNED draft of the original musical manuscript to Fellini's "Le Notti di Cabiria" [Nights at Cabiria] by the great Italian composer Nino Rota (1911-1979), one of the giants of 20th century film composition. The manuscript (written in Milan, ca. 1956) is for the pice tilted simply "Cabiria", from the 1957 Fellini film. It's SIGNED by Nino Rota on the first page (as "Nino R") and is executed entirely in pencil. An early draft, with several corrections and one repeated bar of rest marked through entirely. 5 pgs., consisting of 70 bars for accordion, mandolin and bass on two staves (treble and bass clef), containing all the major musical themes from the film. Nino Rota was Felliini's favorite film composer and authored the soundtracks for all of Fellini's films. Beginning with "The White Sheik" and including "Amarcord", "La Dolce Vita", "La Strada", "Juliet of the Spirits", "Roma", "8 1/2", "I Vitteloni", "Il Bidone" and many others. Rota went on to score films for many great Italian directors (including Luchino Visconti, Franco Zeffirelli, Renato Castellani and Mario Monicelli), as well as non-Italian luminaries such as King Vidor, Rene Clement and Edward Dmytryk. He also scored Coppola's "The Godfather" and "The Godfather Part II", for which he won the Oscar. He also composed many operas, ballets and comedies and was highly-regarded as a conductor. He spent much of his later life teaching composition in Milan. A rare, early signature and the only musical manuscript by Rota that we're aware of to come on the market in a number of years. The 5 pg. manuscript is in bright, beautiful condition and is housed in an attractive, half-leather, custom made box, with descriptive gilt-lettering at the spine. A wonderful piece.

        Les Choses de Paul Poiret

      Pour Paul Piret par Maquet, 1911. In 4° (330 x 295mm). 11 raffinate tavv. a colori in pochoir di Georges Lepape, (1887 - 1971) di cui due ripiegate. Cartone decorato a stampa originale, titolo impresso in arancio e nero. Ottima copia di questo album considerato da molti il miglior libro di moda del suo tempo; l'opera fu commissionata dal " re della moda" Paul Poiret, (1879 - 1944, primo creatore di moda in senso moderno; Poiret "le Magnifique" nasce a Parigi da un commerciante di stoffe) per esporre il suo stile innovativo e rivoluzionario, a Georges Lepape, che era assistente di Poiret. Influenzato dalla ricchezza decorativa e dai colori dei Ballets Russes, messi in scena a Parigi da Diaghilev, Poiret, tra il '10 e l'11, lancia una moda di chiaro eco orientale con turbanti, pantaloni alla turca e tuniche velate da harem, che diverranno distintive del suo stile. Molto scalpore provocano la sua jupe - culotte, primo tentativo di pantalone femminile da casa, e la sua jupe - entravée. Questo album è oggi riconosciuto come un'icona del gusto che influenzerà successivamente le creazioni dei celebri Charles Martin, George Barbier e André Marty, e fu pubblicato dalle più importanti riviste periodiche parigine, quali: La Gazette du Bon Ton, Les Modes et Manières d'aujourd'hui e Le Journal des Dames et des Modes. Lo stile di Poiret risulterà straordinariamente decorativo. Le tavole presenti nella raccolta sono state eseguite da Jean Saudé con la tecnica del pochoir e presentano un rilievo in oro, sono stampate su carta giapponese e protette da veline; completo delle 3 tavv. in stile giapponese. L'opera fu editata in 1000 copie. Ottimo esemplare. Restauro al dorso della legatura.

        Sensitive Plant, The

      1911. One of the Most Sumptuous Gift Volumes of the Year"Publisher's 'Deluxe' Binding"The Cover Design is a Thing of Beauty"[ROBINSON, Charles]. SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe. The Sensitive Plant. Introduction by Edmund Gosse. Illustrations by Charles Robinson. London / Philadelphia: William Heinemann / J.B. Lippincott Co., [1911]. First U.K. Robinson-illustrated Deluxe edition, a Heinemann "Xmas Art Book" that originally sold for 15 shillings. Quarto (10 3/8 x 7 3/4 in; 264 x 195 mm.). xii, [4], 17-127, [1] pp. Eighteen full color tipped-in plates, including frontispiece, with captioned tissue guards. Small color, halftone, or black and white (some full page) illustrations to each page. Publisher's 'Deluxe' binding of full vellum over boards, front cover and spine elaborately stamped and lettered in gilt, pictorial end-papers, top edge gilt. In the scarce original pictorial dust jacket with just some very minor rubbing at extremities. Small, neat and inoffensive ink stamped signature on half-title and title-page. Housed in the original green cardboard slipcase with the color illustration from page 61 on front panel. A tight, bright, and fine copy of this generously produced volume."No more tastefully illustrated book of verse could be desired than the elaborately artistic edition of Shelley's " Sensitive Plant,"edited by Mr. Edmund Gosse, illustrated with much richness of coloring and gracefulness of design by Mr. Charles Robinson, and imported by the Lippincott Co. Mr. Gosse's introduction throws new light on the " Lady, the wonder of her kind," who played the part of "an Eve in this Eden " where grew the sensitive plant. Drawing upon Medwin's notes to a never-published second edition of his life of the poet, he tells us that this paragon of her sex was a certain Countess of Mountcashell, an Irish lady about fifty years of age, of sufficient unconventionality to be welcomed by Shelley and his company as a congenial spirit. The notes on this lady and the editor's gleaning of facts concerning the mimosa pudica, or sensitive plant, celebrated bythe poet, are interesting. The illustrations, large and small, accompanying the slender thread of text, form the conspicuous feature of the book, and make it one of the most sumptuous gift volumes of the year. The cover design is a thing of beauty..."(The Dial, December 1911). "This book... with... supplements in colour in addition to page designs by the artist is sumptuous in effect" (The International Studio, January 1912).
