        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..

        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.

        Autograph Letter Signed [ALS]

      New York: np. FIRST EDITION. Fine. SIGNED LETTER FROM HENRY JAMES ON HIS BROTHER WILLIAM'S RECENT DEATH. In response to Robert Underwood Johnson's request for an obituary of William James (to be published in Johnson's Century Magazine), Henry James, William's younger brother, writes on January 26, 1911: Dear R.U. Johnson, I am obliged to you for your invitation in respect to my Brother but can only reply that it's quite out of the question I should prepare for the Century a snippet of 3000 'popular' words on a subject which, when I do address myself to it I hope to be able to treat seriously and for readers who shall really care to know something about it. I must reserve myself for that [underlined] interesting work wholly, & am yours very truly [signed] Henry James. The brothers-Henry, a great novelist and William, the celebrated American psychologist-were known for their mutual admiration. When William died (just a few months before this letter was written), Henry was at his deathbed: "William died at his summer home in Chocorua, New Hampshire [on August 26, 1910] with Henry at his bedside. Only a week earlier Henry had arrived from England with William and his wife, Alice, along with their son Henry (familiarly known as Harry), all of whom, despite William's own dire heart condition, had crossed the Atlantic in an attempt to nurse Henry back to health. 'He had an inexhaustible authority for me,' [Henry] wrote to H.G. Wells on 10 September 1910, 'and I feel abandoned and afraid, even as a lost child.' Henry made good on his words to Underwood to write something more substantial on William for it has often been assumed that the death of William was the strongest incentive for Henry's autobiographical work, A Small Boy, and in his immensely useful compilation, A Henry James Encyclopedia, Robert Gale maintains that William is 'the hero of James's autobiography, especially its earlier parts.' James had himself indicated as much when he first discussed a 'family book' with William's heirs during the months, stretching to nearly a year, when he stayed with them at their home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was in the unaccustomed role of head of the family. In a letter to William's widow, he assured her that it was to be 'a book of recollections about the James family,' and on his return to London he wrote to his nephew Harry of 'the yearning effort really to get more surely and swiftly now, up to my neck into the book about WJ and the rest of us . . . almost a brotherly autobiography, a filial autobiography'" (Richard Poirier, in London Review of Books). New York: January 26, 1911. 2 1/4 pages on black engraved black bordered mourning stationery, 4 1/2 x 7 inches. Light crease where folded. In very good condition.

        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.
