        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.

      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.

Kalender eingebundener OBrosch. - Mühsam, (1878 - 1934), lebte seit 1901 als freier Schriftsteller in Berlin und München. Er stand u.a. in Verbindung zum Friedrichshagener Dichterkreis um die Brüder Hart und schloß sich in München der literarischen Bohème an. Von Gustav Landauer und den Ideen Michail A. Bakunins sowie Pjotr A. Kropotkins beeinflußt, arbeitete er für kritische Zeitschriften (u.a. "Simplicissmus", "Gesellschaft" und "Aktion") und schrieb satirische Chansons für Münchner Kabaretts. 1911-14 und 1918/19 gab er die Monatsschrift "Kain. Zeitschrift für Menschenrecht" heraus, in der er nur eigene Beiträge veröffentlichte. Im Ersten Weltkrieg entwickelte er sich zum überzeugten Pazifisten und verbüßte wegen Kriegsdienstverweigerung sechs Monate Festungshaft. Neben Landauer und Ernst Toller gehörte er 1918/19 zu den führenden Köpfen der Bayerischen Räterepublik und wurde nach deren Sturz zu 15 Jahren Haft verurteilt. 1924 vorzeitig entlassen, konzentrierte er sich als Herausgeber der anarchistischen Zeitschrift "Fanal" (1926-31) vor allem auf die Weimarer Klassenjustiz und die faschistische Gefahr. Noch am Tag des Reichstagsbrandes (27.2.1933) wurde M. verhaftet und 16 Monate später ermordet. Obgleich die Gedichte, Dramen (u.a. Staatsräson, 1928) und Essays keine eindeutige politische Zuordnung Mühsams erlauben, belegen sie doch sein bündnispolitisches Ziel einer parteiübergreifenden Einigung aller Kräfte im Kampf gegen den Kapitalismus. Zum Chronisten seiner Epoche wurde er durch seine postum veröffentlichte Autobiographie "Namen und Menschen. Unpolitische Erinnerungen" (1949). (DBE) - So komplett sehr selten!

        Gilead Balm: Knight Errant His Adventures in Search of The Truth.

      T. Fisher Unwin, London 1911 - 8vo. 320pp. Publisher's deep red cloth titled in gilt to spine and front board. An exceptionally clean and handsome copy, minor bumping to extremities, otherwise pretty damn lovely. Internally clean, black and red title page, clean and fresh, illustrated throughout by Cyrus Cuneo (father of Terence, and frankly way more artist than your average detective story needs). A collection of deft mysteries, described as "Quests" in keeping with the knight errantry and to differentiate from a surfeit of "Cases", "Affairs" and "Adventures" that ran to four editions in the year of publication, no less. Capes is actually deserving of a bit of a revival, he wrote enough to stock a small shop and much of it is now completely forgotten, which is a bit of a shame:"He was standing in the close proximity of penny gaffs and penny dreadfuls, of the indigenous coster and the cosmopolitan flat-catcher, of Broker's shops, Sunday trading, chronic drunkenness, buffetted faces and vice in its most sodden aspect."It has to be pointed out that this effect can be duplicated by visiting any reputable book fair. Scarce, attractive and cool, something we should all aspire to. mh [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed "P Mascagni" to an unidentified impresario in Vienna, addressed "Mio Caro."

      - 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Rome, October 8, [1]908. In black ink. On stationery with "Corso Vitt. Eman. 154. Telefono Interprov. 458. Per telegrammi: Mascagni, Roma" printed in red at upper left. In Italian (with translation). Mascagni responds to a proposal to write a "true and authentic" operetta. He likes the idea, but would encounter difficulties "of the moral-artistic order," and especially with his publishers, Choudens and Sonzogno. As indicated by his use of "tu," Mascagni and his correspondent were on familiar terms."But there is still a material difficulty, represented in my contracts with the publishers Sonzogno in Milan and Choudens in Paris, who will not want to adjust [their contracts] if they knew I worked for an impresario from Vienna before having delivered (as per contract) the operas that I must write for them. As you've seen I haven't spoken of monetary interests. but profits have never been a difficulty for the closing of my [business] deals."Slightly worn; creased at folds. Together with: A postcard photograph of 5 gentlemen on a street corner dated Paris 1911 on mount: Mascagni, the music publisher Edoardo Sonzogno, the writer Gabriele d'Annunzio and two unidentified others. Mascagni, distinguished as both a composer and conductor, is perhaps best-known for his opera Cavalleria rusticana, which "was enormously successful from its first performance at the Costanzi in Rome in 1890. From then on Mascagni spent the rest of his long career treating a wide variety of subjects. His next opera, L'amico Fritz (1891), consolidated his success with Roman audiences, and revealed his lyrical vein. This fluent rustic comedy was successful particularly because melodic vitality - the outstanding merit of Cavalleria - was combined with a more elegant harmonic idiom." By the time this letter was written, Mascagni had also garnered considerable acclaim in Vienna, Paris, and London. Michele Girardi in Grove Music Online.

DealingÂwith the banking and economies of EuropeÂprior to theÂFirst World War, the works are particularly interesting given the outbreak of the conflict in the following years, with the mislead and futileÂrivalries held betweenÂvarious nations making a huge impact upon their spending and economies.

The full list of worksÂincluded here are as follows:Volume V - The National Banking System by Andrew Macfarland Davis, A. D. Noyes and O. M. W. Sprague Volume X - The Reichsbank and Renewel of its CharterVolume XII - The German Bank Inquiry of 1908 Part OneVolume XIII - The German Bank Inquiry of 1908 Part TwoVolume XV - Banking In France and The French Bourse by Andred Liesse, Maurice Patron and E.
