        THE DOOR IN THE WALL. Illustrated with Photogravures from Photographs by Alvin Langdon Coburn.

      New York & London: Mitchell Kennerley, 1911. First ed. Coburn, Alvin Langdon. Folio, (iv), 153, (i) pp., with 10 tipped-in hand-pulled photogravure plates printed under the supervision of Coburn. Newly bound in linen-backed paper over boards, with the original titling in facsimile on the upper board, and printed paper spine label. The gravure plates are rich in tone and have left transfers on the opposing page as is usually found. The original front free endpaper and half-title page show a mottle pattern from an early inlaid printed item, and there is an occasional spot of foxing to a blank margin. Otherwise, this a very good copy on French hand made paper with types and decorations designed by Frederic W. Goudy and set by Bertha S. Goudy. There were 600 copies of this book printed but only approx. 300 have the full complement of hand-pulled photogravures, the others are either lacking plates or were completed with plates printed by aquatone, a halftone process. This copy is one of the three hundred that contains all plates in hand-pulled photogravure. THE TRUTHFUL LENS #184.

        THE TALE OF TIMMY TIPTOES

      1911. London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1911. Original light brown paper boards with arched pictorial onlay. First Edition of these adventures of Timmy Tiptoes (and his wife Goody), grey squirrels trying to get nuts collected and stored up for the oncoming winter. Timmy is wrongly accused of stealing other squirrels' nuts and is thrown through a tree-hole into his and Goody's nut storehouse -- where he gets sidetracked and eats so many of the nuts that he becomes too fat to get out. The presence of chipmunks and a bear in this tale have led to speculation that the author had American children in mind when she wrote and illustrated this book.~Customers could buy TIMMY TIPTOES either in light brown or dark green paper boards, priced at 1/-, or in decorated cloth, at 1/6. This copy is in the light brown paper boards and is near-fine, with only the merest hint of wear at a couple of corners -- highly-desirable condition for fragile paper-covered boards intended for children's use. Linder pp 208-209 and p. 429; Quinby 20. Housed in a magnificent clamshell case that reproduces the pictorial front cover onlay.

        Steilküste auf Sizilien" originales Ölgemälde auf Malkarton ca. 31x40cm; verso signiert, handschriftlich von fremder Hand betitelt "Sizilien II" und mit überpinselter Inventarnummer; um 1930

      - Mercker studierte ab 1911 an der TH München Bauingenieurswesen. Ab ca. 1915 begann er - als Autodidakt - sich der Ölmalerei zu widmen. In den 20er Jahren unternahm er Reisen nach Österreich, Italien, Südfrankreich, Schweden und Norwegen. Während dieser Zeit entstanden zahlreiche impressionistische Landschaftsbilder. Auch erste Industriebilder, für die Mercker berühmt werden sollte, malte er in dieser Ära. Seit 1921 war er Mitglied der Münchner Künstlergenossenschaft (MKG). 1926 wurde er auch Mitglied der Münchner Künstlerbünde "Ring" und "Isar". 1937 nahm er an der Weltausstellung in Paris teil und erhielt für vier monumentale Ölgemälde die "große goldene Medaille". 1941 war er mit seinem Opus Hermann-Göring-Werke auf der GDK vertreten. Nach 1945 malte er hauptsächlich im Auftrag großer Unternehmen wie M.A.N., Volkswagen oder Bayer. Sein umfangreiches Gesamtwerk (man schätzt es auf über 3000 Ölgemälde) ist noch kaum erschlossen. Mercker ist einer der bedeutendsten Industriemaler des 20. Jhs. Seine Bilder werden auch bei namhaften, internationalen Auktionshäusern wie Christie’s in London angeboten.

        Twelve Large Hand-Colored Photographs of Southern California Scenes

      Pasadena, California. 1911. Twelve large hand colored gelatin silver photographs. The images measure between 2.5" x 6" and 6" x 8". Each is mounted (or double-mounted) and housed in a fine thick-paper portfolio (measuring between 5.5" x 11" and 11" x 14"), several with an Arts and Crafts style printed emblem that reads: "California" on the front flap. The photos are fine but with some offsetting to the folders. All or most are of Southern California scenes, mostly of Mission San Gabriel and San Juan Capistrano Mission. Other identified subjects are The Old Mill (three miles from the Mission San Gabriel) and San Fernando Mission. Most are Signed on the paper mounts in pencil by: "Fredk. W. Martin," three are Signed in the image in watercolor by the artist: "M. Hulbert." Several are dated 1911. It is likely that several images were also hand watercolored by Martin's wife, a watercolor artist, who began hand-coloring his photographs in 1911. The images are uniformly fine, handsome and pleasing images, presumably sold as souvenirs, from the heights of the Arts and Craft Renaissance in Pasadena. A pleasing collection of images. .

        Atlas zur Klinik der Killianschen Tracheo-Bronchoskopie. Farbige Tafeln nach pathologisch-anatomischen Präparaten von Fällen, die im Leben mit Hilfe der Tracheo-Bronchoskopie untersucht waren.

      - Würzburg, Curt Kabitsch, 1911, Folio, 3 Bl., 20 Bl. Tafelerklärungen, 1 Bl., 20 farbchromolith. Tafeln und 20 bedruckte transparente Deckblätter, feiner Halbledereinband; zarter Stempel auf Titel. Erste und einzige Ausgabe dieses sehr seltenen und kostbaren Atlas mit sorgfältig gezeichneten Abbildungen in natürlicher Größe! - Text in deutscher, französischer und englischer Sprache. - "Erneuerung erhielt die Laryngologie durch Killian's Methode der Bronchoskopie, die ihm Weltruf verschaffte." - VORWORT: "Seit vielen Jahren habe ich mich bemüht, die Tracheo-Bronchoskopie in klinischen Fällen zu verwerten und sie zur Begründung und Vertiefung der Diagnose insbesondere bei raumbeengenden Tumoren des Brustraumes heranzuziehen. Der Erfinder Killian selbst hatte das Beispiel hierfür gegeben und H. von Schroetter (Klinik der Bronchoskopie 1906) hat sich auch um diesen Zweig der Endoskopie die grössten Verdienste erworben. - Bei diesem Bestreben bin ich in gleicher Weise vom Chirurgen und den Internisten unseres Friedrichstädter Krankenhauses unterstützt worden. Ihnen spreche ich auch an dieser Stelle meinen Dank aus. Auch Kollegen aus der Stadt haben mir gelegentlich Fälle zugewiesen. - Will man über den Wert oder Unwert einer klinischen Untersuchungsmethode eine Entscheidung herbeiführen und dabei gleichzeitig an das eigene Können einen scharfen kritischen Maßstab legen, so kann man dies nur mit Hilfe der alten Lehrmeisterin aller medizinischen Disziplinen, der pathologischen Anatomie. Darum habe ich bei allen Fällen, die ich in vivo untersucht habe, und die letal endeten, die Sektion durchzusetzen versucht. Bei den Krankenhausinsassen war dies ein leichtes, da ich mich hier insbesondere der tatkräftigen Hilfe Geh.-Rat Schmorls zu erfreuen hatte. In der freien Praxis war es oft recht schwer, zuweilen auch trotz jahrelanger Beobachtung nicht möglich. Die gewonnenen Präparate habe ich durch Herrn Kunstmaler Boerner in möglichster Naturtreue malen lassen. Auf diese Weise bin ich allmählich zu einer stattlichen Anzahl von Bildern gelangt. Einen Teil derselben habe ich im Verein deutscher Laryngologen zu Heidelberg 1909, eine weitere Anzahl bei der Dresdener Tagung im vorigen Jahre demonstriert. Sie fanden den Beifall der Fachgenossen. Killian insbesondere sprach den Wunsch aus, sie möchten als Atlas publiziert werden. - Nachdem ich in Herrn Curt Kabitzsch in Würzburg einen Verleger gefunden habe, der für eine in jeder Beziehung künstlerische Wiedergabe der Originale kein Opfer gescheut hat, übergebe ich die Bilder, erläutert durch kurze Krankengeschichten, hiermit der Öffentlichkeit. - Den tracheoskopischen Befund bei den einzelnen Fällen habe ich immer nur in Worten gegeben, auf eine bildliche Darstellung absichtlich verzichtet, weil solchen Bildern eine zu starke subjektive Auffassung anhaften muss. - Dass ich auch öfters zu Fehldiagnosen gelangt bin, wird jeder aus den Krankengeschichten ersehen. Ich hätte hie und da den Wunsch gehabt, sorgfältig auseinanderzusetzen, welche Momente mich auf die falsche Bahn geführt haben. Das würde aber den gegebenen Raum überschritten haben. - Ich hoffe zuversichtlich, dass wir durch Weiterarbeiten auf dem hier beschrittenem Wege, durch Sammeln pathologisch-anatomischer Befunde von solchen Fällen, die wir im Leben genau endoskopiert haben, zu einer immer grösseren Sicherheit in der Diagnosestellung gelangen werden. - Die folgenden Tafeln sollen die engeren Fachgenossen unterstützen bei der Deutung eigener Befunde. Die Internisten aber möchten sie davon überzeugen, dass sie sich selbst im Lichte stehen, wenn sie, im Bewusstsein des hohen Wertes ihrer alten Untersuchungsmethoden, der neuen länger die Tür verschliessen. Die Tracheo-Bronchoskopie macht keine derselben unentbehrlich, auch nicht ihre nur wenig ältere Schwester die Röntgenuntersuchung. Wo sie aber neben ihr anwendbar ist, dann unterscheiden sich ihre Ergebnisse wie der lebende Mensch sich unterscheidet - von seinem Schatten." . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die Kronprätendenten

      Gesellschaft Der Bibliophilen, Weimar 1911 Halbleder/ Hartkarton Sehr gut 250 Exemplare, hier Nr. 23. Eine Prachtausgabe! Farbig marmorierter Hartkarton-Einband, Lederecken mit Goldverzierung, Lederrücken mit goldgeprägter Titelei, 6 Bünde, goldener Kopfschnitt, Exlibris im inneren Buchdeckel, auf schwerem, kartoniertem Papier gedruckt. \"Dieses Buch wurde für die Gesellschaft der Bibliophilen auf der Privatpresse der königlichen Akademie für graphische Künste und Buchgewerbe zu Leipzig hergestellt. Satz: Georg Belwe. Buchdruck: Richard Berthold. Bilder und Initialen: Radiert von Alois Kolb. Georg Witkowski überwachte die Gestaltung des Wortlauts. Papier: Edmund Obst.\" 96 paginierte Seiten, mit teilweise ganzseitigen Radierungen, mit dekorativem, gemustertem Reispapier geschützt, einzeln signiert von Alois Kolb. Ein Meisterwerk der Buchkunst, minimalste Schieflage, kaum erkennbar, insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. \"Henrik Ibsen(1828-1906) war im Jahre 1857, als er sein historisches Schauspiel \"Die Kronprätendenten\" schrieb, Theaterdirektor in Christiania. Er war nicht schon wie später Führer und Verführer, er war noch der Geführte; sein körperliches Auge war noch befangen in den engen Verhältnissen der nordischen Heimath, sein geistiges hatte noch nicht gelernt, die Nebel der Tradition, der später so viel gehaßten, zu durchspähen. Wie heutzutage bei uns die sozialen Dramen des vierten Standes in Mode sind, waren vor 30 Jahren im Norden die politischen Dramen des ersten Standes im Schwange. Die inneren Wirren, die das ganze 12. Jahrhundert hindurch am Marke Norwegens zehrten und die ihren Ursprung in dem auch auf außereheliche Kinder der Gewalthaber ausgedehnten Thronfolgerecht hatten, beschäftigten eine ganze Reihe von Dichtern dieses Landes, das auch heute noch nicht zur politischen Ruhe gelangt ist. Vor allen war es Adam Oehlenschläger, Björnstjerne Björnson und Andreas Munch, die ihre Federn in den Dienst der nationalen Dichtung stellten. Das letzte Schauspiel \"Herzog Skule\" deckt sich in vielfacher Weise mit Ibsens \"Kronprätendenten\". Beide behandeln den endlichen grandiosen Abschluß der Bürgerkriege durch König Hakon Hakonson, der sein angeborenes Recht gegen eine Welt von Widersachern vertheidigte, das Land beruhigte und vergrößerte und weit über dessen Grenzen hinaus gewaltigen Herrscherruhmes genoß, so daß ihm der Papst sogar den eigentlich nicht vakanten Deutschen Kaiserstuhl anbot.\"(ibsen.net) Alois Kolb (1875-1942), Wiener Künstler, besonders als Buchillustrator und Exlibris-Künstler bekannt. In seinen grafischen Blättern erreichte Kolb eine malerische Wirkung, indem er seine Radierungen häufig mit anderen Verfahren wie z. B. der Ätztechnik kombinierte.

        A Gallery of Girls

      The Century Co., NY, 1911. Near Fine with No dust jacket as issued. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full green cloth, color paste-down on cover. Illustrated with color paste-down on cover, illustrated title page, 39 gorgeous, full-page, full-color plates by Coles Phillips, and 39 cameo B drawings on pages facing the color plates. Printed on thick, glossy stock. Clarence Coles Phillips (1880 -1927) was an American artist and illustrator. He is known for his stylish images of women and a signature use of negative space in the paintings he created for advertisements and the covers of popular magazines. In 1907, Phillips met with J. A. Mitchell, the publisher of Life magazine, and was hired onto its staff at the age of twenty-six. Phillips would be associated with the magazine throughout his life. The work of Phillips quickly became popular with the Life readers. In May 1908, he created a cover for the magazine that featured his first "fadeaway girl" design with a figure whose clothing matched, and disappeared into, the background. Phillips developed this idea in many subsequent covers. Phillips' use of negative space allowed the viewer to "fill-in" the image; it also reduced printing costs for the magazine, as "the novelty of the technique and the striking design qualities masked the fact that Life was getting by with single color or two-color covers in a day when full-color covers were de rigueur for the better magazines". Phillips worked in watercolor and always painted from life; according to his biographer, Michael Schau, "he refused to work from photographs or to use the pantograph." Phillips produced cover art for other national magazines besides Life, including Good Housekeeping, which for two years (beginning in July 1912) made him their sole cover artist. Phillips also created many advertising images for makers of women's clothing, and other advertisers. His series depicting women wearing Holeproof Hosiery products was considered daring for its time. Head, heel and corners very lightly worn, unmarked, tight, square, and clean. All illustrations in perfect condition, bright and clear. NEAR FINE. Color Plates. 4to 11" - 13" tall. (87) pp

        Autograph postcard signed "Bartók" to Richard Wank, a piano student of Bartók's in Budapest, dated February [1911]

      - "Although he earned his living mainly from teaching and playing the piano and was a relentless collector and analyst of folk music, Bartók is recognized today principally as a composer. He is now considered, along with Liszt, to be his country’s greatest composer, and, with Kodály and Dohnányi, a founding figure of 20th-century Hungarian musical culture." Malcolm Gillies We would like to thank Professor Peter Laki of Bard College for his kind assistance in the cataloguing of this item. Bartók writes to change the time of his student's lesson, from Thursday to Saturday at 9, and send greetings. Uniformly browned, slightly lighter around margins, most probably from an earlier matting; partial postmarks to both recto and verso.

        THE DOOR IN THE WALL. Illustrated with Photogravures from Photographs by Alvin Langdon Coburn.

      Mitchell Kennerley, New York & London 1911 - Folio, (iv), 153, (i) pp., with 10 tipped-in hand-pulled photogravure plates printed under the supervision of Coburn. Newly bound in linen-backed paper over boards, with the original titling in facsimile on the upper board, and printed paper spine label. The gravure plates are rich in tone and have left transfers on the opposing page as is usually found. The original front free endpaper and half-title page show a mottle pattern from an early inlaid printed item, and there is an occasional spot of foxing to a blank margin. Otherwise, this a very good copy on French hand made paper with types and decorations designed by Frederic W. Goudy and set by Bertha S. Goudy. There were 600 copies of this book printed but only approx. 300 have the full complement of hand-pulled photogravures, the others are either lacking plates or were completed with plates printed by aquatone, a halftone process. This copy is one of the three hundred that contains all plates in hand-pulled photogravure. THE TRUTHFUL LENS #184. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Anne of Greene Gables

      Boston: L.C. Page, and Company 1911 - Illustrated by May Austin Claus and William Anton Joseph Claus. First edition, first printing of the first book in the author's Avonlea series. Publisher's ribbed light teal cloth, with gilt lettering to the front board and spine, illustration of a woman's profile to laid on the front board. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, some rubbing and light soiling to the boards, inner hinges discreetly repaired, light spotting to the endpapers, otherwise bright and clean interior. A sturdy and presentable copy. Housed in a custom maroon slipcase. Anne of Green Gables is a story about a young orphan girl, Anne Shirley, who is sent to live on a farm on Prince Edward Island with a family who had intended to adopt a boy. Montgomery drew much of the novel's setting from her own childhood experiences living with her grandparents on the eastern coast of the island. 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.
