        More Ghost Stories of an Antiquary

      Edward Arnold, London 1911 - First edition, first printing with the ads. pp. [i-iv], v-vii, [viii], [1-2] 3-274, 24, ads pp. 1 vols. 8vo. The second work of fiction by the distinguished scholar, educator, administrator and antiquarian who was one of the greatest ghost-story writers of all time. Had he not written in the genre, Rhodes, born in 1862, would have been remembered as a writer and expert on apocryphal literature and medieval manuscripts, as director of Cambridge's Fitzwilliam Museum, a noteworthy administrator of King's College, and Provost of Eton until his death in 1936. Instead, we know him as a masterful narrator who 'surpassed most writers of ghost stories in the eeriness of his atmosphere, the individual and peculiarly creepy quality of his plots, and the vindictiveness and maligancy of his ghosts." (Kunitz & Haycraft, Twentieth Century Authors). Among the seven extremely creepy stories in this volume is the frequently anthologized tale, "The Tractate Middoth." Bleiler, Supernatural Fiction, p. 279 Original pictorial gray cloth (upper board with a bat in flight), front and spine panels stamped in black, Arnold imprint at foot, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Minor rubbing. Near fine pp. [i-iv], v-vii, [viii], [1-2] 3-274, 24, ads pp. 1 vols. 8vo First edition, first printing with the ads. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Album de Poemes Tires du Livre de Jade.

      The Brook, Hammersmith: Eragny Press, 1911. Illustrated with seven large round wood engravings, a device and initial and eleven small initials designed by Lucien Pissarro and engraved by Lucien and Esther Pissarro, printed in gold and in colours.

Small 4to., original full soft jade-green kid, bound in the Japanese manner being tied with brown silk cord, upper cover with title and ornament blocked in gold. An unusally good copy with only very mild darkening to the spine. Pissarro's masterpiece in response to Japanese influence of which Lucien wrote, it "gave me particular pleasure to produce". He used Japanese vellum since it could be used dry, thus avoiding the problem of gold sticking aggressively to wet paper and demonstrating the Pissarro's extraordinary skill as printers.

Schwarz L 82. Brandis-Feilchenfeldt 39.A. Bücher der Bibel in der Übersetzung von Martin Luther. Eines von 60 numerierten Exemplaren der Ausgabe A auf Kaiserlichem Japan (Gesamtauflage: 310). \"Leicht möglich, dass den einen oder anderen Beschauer - der an eine fromme und sanfte Auffassung des Hohen Liedes gewöhnt ist - die starke männliche Sinnlichkeit seiner Visionen, die Wildheit der Linien, die Kühnheit der Farben erschrecken. Aber wessen Seele ein starker Trunk mundet, wem die Brust sich weitet beim Anblick des Ausbruches eines grossen Temperamentes, einer originellen Phantasie, einer männlichen Kraft des Ausdruckes, der wird den Visionen Corinths, die in dem neuen Werk der Pan-Presse niedergelegt sind, ein dankbarer Beschauer sein. Dieses letzte Werk der Pan-Presse bedeutet technisch ein Novum. Corinth malte die Bilder auf den Stein, und die sorgliche Hand einer Schülerin des Kunstgewerbemuseums, des Fräulein Penzig, schrieb auf denselben Stein die Buchstaben. Das Papier dieses Buches wurde von keiner Buchpresse berührt; zu gleicher Zeit wie die Bilder druckte die Steinpresse die schwarzen Buchstaben auf den gemeinsamen Grund\" (aus der Ankündigung im Börsenblatt, zitiert nach Feilchenfeldt-Brandis). - Alle Tafeln rückseitig mit winzigem Sammlerstempelchen versehen, sonst kaum sichtbare Fingerfleckchen und wenige minimale blasse Stockfleckchen, insgesamt sehr gute Innenerhaltung. Vorsatz mit großem gestochenen Exlibris des Sammlers Jindrich Waldes. Einband mit Kratzspuren und einer Abschabung, Kapital eingerissen, angestaubt und leicht fleckig. Versandkostenfreie Lieferung

        Autograph letter signed „In tiefer Liebe Dein Freund".

      Sindelsdorf, 2. II. 1911. - 8vo. 4 pp. Important letter to Maria Franck, his future wife, with a sketch in black ink of the painting „Weidende Pferde IV" (Die roten Pferde), within the text. Marc is describing and illustrating his very large new painting of three horses grazing in a landscape, which is wholly coloured except one corner he has to change, explaining that the colours are hard to describe but that the landscape uses pure cadmium and cobalt blue, deep green and and carmine red, the horses in shades of yellow, brown and violet, emphasizing that the colours are controlled within a strong triangular composition, also telling her of a forthcoming meeting of the Neue Künstlervereinigung München (N.K.V.M) with Erbslöh, Werefkin, Kanoldt and others (".Wir sind blödsinnig neugierig, was sie sagen ").Ich hab noch ein sehr grosses Bild mit 3 Pferden in der Landschaft, ganz farbig von einerEcke zur anderen, angefangen, die Pferde im Dreie[c]k aufgestellt. Die Farben sind schwer zu beschreiben. Im Terrain reiner Zinnoberneben reinemCadmium u. Cobaltblau,tiefemGrün u Carminrot, die Pferde gelbbraun bis violette. Sehr stark modellirtes Terrain, ganze Partien.in reinstem Blau! Kannst du dir das denken? Die Formen alle. stark u. klar, damit sie die Farben aushalten Marc discusses the dispensation needed to allow him to marry Marie, praising the petition that has been prepared by Fromm, inferring that Schnür’s deposition must have been very strange and even comical, and that he feels confident of success.Weidende Pferde IV (Die roten Pferde) [Grazing Horses (The Red Horses)], now in a private collection, is one of a series of three monumental paintings in primary colours made by Marc in 1911, also including Yellow Cow and the Large Blue Horses. Although Marc’s ink sketch clearly identifies the painting here, his description of the colours is different from the final version. However he makes clear his principle of containing the strong colours within a strong formal scheme. Marc had married Marie Schnür in 1908 in a marriage of convenience. However when she divorced him, she laid a charge of adultery against him, which meant that he had to petition for a dispensation to allow him to marry Marie Franck, which he did in London in 1911.

        The Pink Shop.

      London: F.V. White and Co., 1911., 1911. INSCRIBED FIRST EDITION WITH SIGNED LETTER. Octavo, pp.312. Bound in publisher's blue cloth, gilt titles to upper, gilt titles and publisher's imprint to spine; lower edge uncut. Inscribed by the author "With all good wishes / Fergus Hume / Thundersley Essex, 11th Sept 1911", and includes a letter which touchingly records the author's desire that all should "act our several parts on the stage of the world", typed and signed by Hume, and dated "24th September 1911"; occasional and marginal foxing. Binding shows well, with minor rubbing to edges, bumping to spine ends, and a slight lean; spotted to front edge. Somewhat of a trailblazer in crime fiction, Hume not only wrote the novel which arguably inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to write Sherlock Holmes (The Mystery of a Hansom Cab), but also wrote a mystery in which the leading investigator is a woman - Miss Perry Toat.

Brooke developed a fatal case of blood poisoning from an insect bite while anchored off Skyros; he died on 23 April 1915 aboard a hospital ship, just two days before the Allies launched their ill-fated invasion of Gallipoli. Churchill wrote in his obituary for The Times: "He expected to die; he was willing to die for the dear England whose beauty and majesty he knew…The thoughts to which he gave expression in the very few incomparable war sonnets which he has left behind will be shared by many thousands of young men moving resolutely and blithely into this, the hardest, the cruellest and the least rewarded of all the wars that men have fought." The poet's second book, 1914 and Other Poems, was published posthumously.

        Manuscrits] Règle musicale de transposition

      1911 - , 1911-1914, , , sous chemise, Plus de 180 documents autographes ou tapuscrits ayant trait à l'invention, la fabrication et à l'essai de commercialisation de la règle de transposition musicale élaborée, en 1911, par Jules Antonyn Brisson, ingénieur des Mines de Béthune à Bully-les-Mines dans le Pas-de-Calais. Il s'agit de dessins et descriptions de l'inventeur ayant servi à l'établissement du brevet, d'avis de délivrance du brevet et de ses 2 additions, de documents officiels, et de la correspondance de Brisson avec son cabinet d'avocats gérant ses droits en France et à l'étranger, avec divers fabricants d'instruments (Ingénieur Morin à Paris, Albert Nestler à Baden, Dennert & Pape à Altona, L'électrogravure Belge et Tavernier-Gravet), avec des revendeurs (la Maison Gras à Lille), et avec des imprimeurs (Paul Dutilleux à Douai). Les documents, classés dans le sens inverse de la chronologie, donc de janvier 1914 à décembre 1911, retracent les étapes qui ne permirent pas à Antonyn Brisson de commercialiser sa règle musicale. Alors qu'il obtint un brevet français de l'Office National de la Propriété Industrielle le 24 février 1912 (brevet déposé le 15 décembre 1911), que Paul Michon, gérant des prestigieux établissements Tavernier-Gravet accepta, dans un premier temps, de fabriquer sa Règle de transposition, Brisson échoua rapidement dans la commercialisation de son invention. La présente compilation nous en donne les 5 principales explications : il se brouilla avec Tavernier-Gravet, dû essuyer un refus de la part de l'Allemagne pour l'obtention d'un brevet allemand, ne parvint pas à faire fabriquer en Belgique sa Règle alors qu'il avait obtenu un brevet belge, perdit un proche (ce qu'il l'affecta beaucoup à la fin de l'année 1913), et, alors qu'il était en bon terme avec une importante Manufacture d'instruments de Musique localisée à Lille, la Maison Gras, qui, à partir de l'année 1913, réussit à promouvoir sa Règle, le 3 novembre 1913 un prénommé Bardey, inventeur d'un "appareil transpositeur" (dont le brevet avait été déposé le 22 février 1911) utile pour "déterminer instantanément la tonalité dans laquelle chaque instrument doit être joué", fait remarquer, par lettre, à Antonyn Brisson que son "transpositeur a été copié" par ce dernier. "Toutefois, ajoute-t-il, si vous voulez rester seul à exploiter cette invention, je serais peut-être disposé à prendre un arrangement amiable avec vous". Brisson semble ne lui avoir jamais répondu. On joint, une photocopie du manuel d'utilisation de la Règle et une Règle de Transposition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Peter and Wendy

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. Fine in Very Good dust jacket. 1911. First; First. First American Edition, first issue (simultaneous with the London Harrap edition). The true first is distinguished by three points: 1. Scribner's seal, 2."Published October, 1911" to copyright page and 3. A "$1.50 net" price to the jacket's front cover (later issues priced at $2.50 on the front flap). A fine copy with Peter, Mermaids & the Click-Tock Crocodile to the front and Captain Hook to the spine. First issue jacket repeats the binding images and adds the price. Later editions (though still copyrighted 1911) lack the oddly-placed price to the front of the jacket. Jacket frayed along top with not entirely successful archival repairs from long ago. Book itself is as new: tight hinges and gutters; no owners' names, no bookplates, no sunning nor wear; gilt is bright & clean. "Sir James Matthew Barrie (1860 - 1937) was a Scottish author and dramatist, the child of a family of small-town weavers, and best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan. He was educated in Scotland but moved to London, where he developed a career as a novelist and playwright. There he met the Llewelyn Davies boys who inspired him to write about a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens (included in The Little White Bird), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a "fairy play" about an ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. Peter Pan quickly overshadowed his previous work [and was] credited with popularizing the name Wendy, which was very uncommon previously. Barrie unofficially adopted the Davies boys following the deaths of their parents. Before his death, he gave the rights to the Peter Pan works to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, which continues to benefit from them." Wikipedia 2016; 8vo ; [ix], 267 pages .

        The Irrigation of Mesopotamia.

      London: E. & F.N. Spon, Limited,, 1911. Octavo. Original sage green morocco-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine and to the upper board together with the author's monogram in gilt and a palm tree device in darker green. With the dust jacket. Numerous tables to the text. A little bumped at the corners and head and tail of the spine, light browning to the text, some foxing to the endpapers, but a very good copy indeed in slightly browned jacket with a few short closed tears and minor chips, some archival tissue repairs verso, but largely complete. First edition. Trained at the Thomason Civil Engineering College at Roorkee in 1874 Willcocks became personal assistant to Colin Scott-Moncrieff, superintending engineer on the construction of the Ganges Canal. when Scott-Moncrieff became director of irrigation in Egypt in 1883 Willcocks accompanied him; "In Egypt, Willcocks had to contend with a variety of nations and languages, and the ingrained practice of bribery, against which he resolutely turned his face. Eccentric, voluble, and excitable by temperament, he found it difficult to agree to differ with his chiefs and colleagues, and in his thirteen years in Egypt he was not promoted … During this period Willcocks surveyed and levelled from Cairo to Wadi Halfa, explored the upper Nile for possible sites for reservoir dams, and lectured on irrigation and applied mechanics at the Polytechnical School where he also presided over examinations" (ODNB). He was manager of the Cairo Water Company from 1897 to 1899, then until 1905 managing director of the Daira Sania Land Company, which acquired 250,000 acres of land which were sold for agricultural purposes. "In 1901 he spent three months in south Africa, during the South African War, advising on irrigation schemes … In the winter of 1904?-5 he went to Mesopotamia, then under Turkish rule, where in 1908?-10 he achieved the remarkable feat of surveying the water resources of the whole country and drew up plans to revitalize once more the lands of the 'two rivers'". This text was accompanied by a large portfolio of plates, which is almost invariably missing. Uncommon, particularly so in the jacket.

        Naval Strategy

      London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company, Limited,, 1911. compared and contrasted with the Principles and Practice of Military Operations on Land. Lectures delivered at U.S. Naval War College, Newport, R.I., between the years 1887 and 1911. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, black coated endpapers. 13 folding maps and plans. Covers a little rubbed and marked, small abrasion at lower joint. First UK edition, first impression (published in the same year as the first US edition). With a very appealing provenance: from the library of Admiral of the Fleet John Jellicoe, first Earl Jellicoe (1859-1935), the victor of Jutland, who "deserves his place alongside the heroes of another age" (ODNB), signed on the front free endpaper "Jh Jellicoe". Arthur J. Marder, writing in From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow, volume V, Victory and Aftermath: 1918-1919, makes the interesting point that "Richmond [Admiral Sir Herbert William Richmond] made fun of Jellicoe for not having read Mahan until 1917, right in the middle of the war". Alfred Thayer Mahan is, of course, one of the most important writers on naval matters: "it would be difficult to overestimate the influence of Mahan's work on the navies of most maritime nations. His books were closely studied at most naval staff colleges and war colleges" (The Oxford Companion to Ships & the Sea).

        [PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM OF AN EARLY CALIFORNIA ROAD TRIP BY AUTOMOBILE, 1911]

      [Various California locations, including Paso Robles, Palo Alto, and Napa Valley, 1911. Mounted to black album pages on rectos only, twin-bolt binding. Minor wear to a handful of photos, light adhesive staining. Very good. A wonderful photograph album recording the travels of two men, two women, and a young boy in California in 1911. The first photo shows the group in a Ford Model T, the sign behind them identifying their location as El Camino Real, twenty-three miles outside Santa Barbara, presumably north of the city. This photograph is captioned in pencil in the border below the image, July 7, 1911. Subsequent photographs show the group traveling extensively over both well-worn roads and rugged terrain. Identifiable locations include Paso Robles, the Thomas Welton Stanford Library Building on the campus of Stanford University in Palo Alto, and the Mt. St. Helena Inn in Napa Valley. There are also several majestic shots of valleys and scenes of the car traveling on tight mountainous roads. Two photographs show what appears to be the ruins of a California gold mine. A treasure trove of images for the California collector, or anyone interested in early automobilia.

Cet ouvrage contient QUATRE PLANCHES de reproductions photographiques de portraits en pied, dont trois de l'auteur et un de Mme Émile Amiel. Cette édition, décorée d'ornements floraux en vert par Maurice Dufrêne, a été établie et réalisée par les soins de Louis Barthou et Pierre Dauze. Les années 1865 à 1880 correspondent à une des périodes les plus actives et les plus glorieuses de la vie du poète parnassien SULLY PRUDHOMME (1839-1907). Dans cette correspondance, les sujets les plus variés sont abordés : poésie, critique littéraire, philosophie, art, sociologie, et elles contiennent les renseignements les plus précieux sur les oeuvres et la méthode de travail de Sully Prudhomme. Elles furent adressées à une femme d'une rare distinction d'esprit, dont l'auteur des "Solitudes" goûtait tout particulièrement les conseils, Mme Émile Amiel, mariée à un professeur d'Université auquel on doit deux études sur Érasme et sur Juste Lipse. Mme Amiel était la grand-mère de Mme Louis Barthou. ("Revue des Deux Mondes", Tome 6, 1911). BEL EXEMPLAIRE relié par Creuzevault. FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

A magnificent effort of book production to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the Divine Comedy. Gabriele d'Annunzio was to have contributed a life of Dante. He never completed it, so his 'Vita' was replaced by an earlier, already published essay on Dante. Everything else is first-rate. The handmade paper was commissioned for this edition, which was printed in 300 copies. (this is number 41). The binding is leather over wooden boards with iron clasps, bosses, and a bust of Dante (in six copies, one of which is in the Pierpont Morgan Library, the clasps, bosses, etc. are of silver). In this copy the previous owner, a Dante scholar, began annotating on the title-page, the beautiful title-page. He made two notes, then came to his senses (or someone beat him senseless). The NUC (132: 646: ND0037108) records five copies: DLC, CU, FU, DCU, MH. We have had a clamshell box made for it by James DiMarcantonio, Hope Bindery & Box Company. The condition is generally excellent; there is some scuffing, a few of the nails for the ironwork have come out. We had the leather of the clasps replaced. One of the great editions of Dante. OB1000.
