        Shakespeare Memorial Ball in Support of the Shakespeare Memorial Fund

      London: Frederick Warne & Co., 1911. Title: Souvenir of the Shakespeare Ball Held at the Albert Hall June 20, 1911, in Support of the Shakespeare Memorial Fund. London, [1912]. Published by Frederick Warne & Co., Printed by Hudson & Kearns, Ltd. to commemorate the Shakespeare Ball Held at the Royal Albert Hall 20 June 1911. Crown Folio. 49 pages, [1], plus 51 plates with protective tissue guards, 18 of which are in colour, numerous in-text illustrations. Publisher's original vellum binding, with gilt title and intricate tooling to front, cotton ribbon woven through vellum for a string-tie closure, satin endpapers, rough-cut edges, top edges gilt. Volume measures approximately 17 x 11.5 inches (43 x 29 cm). Lacking satin ties, otherwise in Very Good and original condition, a beautiful highly illustrated volume. An uncommon and pleasing tribute, profusely and eloquantly illustrated, this work commemorates a most distinguished gala which celebrated of the world's most famous playwright and actor, William Shakespeare. Serendipitously, it also serves as a pictorial album illustrating a common gathering of numerous aristocrats, peers, and royals from afar, and many being from Prussian or German monarchies. The ball was organised by a committee chaired by Mrs. George Cornwallis-West (later Sir Winston Churchill's sister-in-law, and known as Lady Randolph Spencer Churchill), whom also edited this commemorative book. Oddly, England was one of only a scant few European countries without a national theatre at the time. Successful in drawing the attention and participation of the influential and wealthy, the event was a fundraiser for a new theatre, a National Theatre, to be erected in London and the tercentenary of Shakespeare's death, 23 April in 1916. Excerpt from the Epilogue, by I. Gollancz, Honorary Secretary, Shakespeare Memorial Committee, "... The Shakespeare Ball, graced by the stately presence of the world's regality, by the noblest and fairest of English kin 'beyond the seas' rightly symbolises the universal homage to Shakespeare... those who have worked will see the consummation of their efforts in the foundation of the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, to serve the purpose of a great National Theatre, and to advance the interests of Drama..." With an impressive guest list consisting of European nobles and upper-class elites, 3000 guests dressed in Elizabethan costume or as characters from Shakespeare's plays, and, the fancy dress ball is still, over a century later, remembered as an extraordinary event unparalleled in London's dramatic societies, and described as "the most spectacular event ever held at the Hall". The volume contains a four-page list of all participants, as well as two pages naming the Royal guests who travelled from as far as Russia, Siam, Japan, Egypt, America. The box ticket holders list is also replete with historically significant names in the realm of colonialism, politics and artistic circles. The text includes contributions by George Bernard Shaw, Gilbert Keith (G.K.) Chesterton, Anthony Hope, Joseph William Comyns Carr, (Charles) Lewis Hind, the 2nd Earl of Lytton, and (Henry) Hamilton Fyfe. Especially fascinating are the lithograph plates of hand drawn sketches and watercolours and the photogravures of snapshots made on location during the ball. These illustrations feature society notables in costume, authentically dressed as characters from the plays of William Shakespeare, and as persons from the court of Queen Elizabeth in 1598, most of the latter being a direct descendant, or a relation of the historical person they dressed as. Some of the lithographed drawings feature: The Countess of Lytton as Joan of Arc Lady Arlington as Cleopatra Mrs. Charles Hunter who arranged the King Lear quadrille dance Lady Baring as Lady Macduff Lord Buckhurst as Page to Queen Elizabeth Viscountess Ridley as Rosalind Lady Maud Warrender as Hippolta Mrs. St. John Lambert as Juliet Some of the photogravures include: Countess of Wemyss as Katherine of Aragon Lady Mond as Queen in "Richard II" Lady Paget as a Court Lady in "Henry VI" Lord Alexander Thynne as Henry VI with Duchess of Westminster as Queen of France Lady Rosemary Leveson-Gower & Countess Zia Torby - Court Ladies in "Henry VI" Viscountess Lewisham, Miss Una Shaw-Stewart, Lady Nunburnholme, as Fairies in "The Tempest" Lady Cynthia Graham & Lady Juliet Duff as Amazons Duke of Somerset as The Lord Protector Lady Lowther, Court Lady in Henry VI Mrs John Leslie as a Court Lady in "Twelfth Night" Duke of Manchester, Lord Dunraven, Baron de Tuyll, Countess of Craven, Duchess of Manchester Countess Hochberg and Sir Hill Child, Sir Godfrey Baring... Lord Colum Stuart as Salario in "The Merchant of Venice" Lady Gwendolin Spencer Churchill as Attendant on Portia Lady Beatrice Pole-Carew as "Portia"' by Lallie Charles Viscountess Curzon as Margaret of England The Hon. Victoria Sackville-West, (Lady Saviles Quadrille) Miss Violet Vanbrugh (Mrs Arthur Bourchier) as Lady Macbeth Lady Lister-Kaye as Court Lady in "Twelfth Night" Lord Sackville as Thomas Sackville Earl of Dorset Held at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday, 20 June 1911, the ball raised £10,000 towards the Shakespeare Memorial Fund. The souvenir album was offered to guests for five guineas per copy. "The Royal Albert Hall has seen many a spectacular ball held here during its long history, but perhaps none so spectacular as The Shakespeare Memorial Ball of 1911. Recreating the magnificence of Tudor England, The Shakespeare Memorial Ball took place on 20 June 1911, in order to raise money for the Shakespeare Memorial Fund. The lavishly designed interior, devised by architect Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens, transformed the Hall into a small-scale Coliseum decorated as an Italian-style Tudor garden..[]... Among the 3,000 who attended were Prime Minister Herbert Asquith, Home Secretary Winston Churchill, and, due to the event taking place two days before the Coronation of King George V, more members of European royalty present than at any other time in the Hall?'s history, including many crowned Princes and Princesses of Europe, Grand Dukes and Eastern rulers. After the dancing, there were tableaux representing scenes from Shakespeare?'s plays with nobility in brilliant costume. Guests dressed as dukes, cardinals, explorers, courtiers, ambassadors, peers, maids of honour, and other characters from the bard?'s dramas and the Elizabethan period. In fact, a number of the guests were direct descendants of the persons they were impersonating, including the Howards, Talbots, Cecils, Burghleys, Fortescue, Lytteltons, Hamiltons and Comptons. The event was a roaring success and raised £10,000 for the Shakespeare Memorial Fund." [From the Royal Albert Hall website, Wednesday 23 April 2014 by Natasha van der Pas] . Very Good.

        A Hundred Years of Conflict. Being some Records of the Services of Six Generals of the Doyle Family 1756-1856. UNIQUE 'GUERNSEY' ASSOCIATION COPY

      Longmans Green & Co.,, 1911. 8vo., First Edition, with a portrait frontispiece (original tissue guard present), and 10 plates; original red cloth, upper board framed and lettered in blind, gilt back, uncut, covers lightly age-marked else a very good, bright, clean copy. With the separately printed errata slip. The work includes accounts of General Sir John Doyle, Major-General Welbore Ellis Doyle, Lieut.-General Sir Charles Doyle, Major-General Sir Francis Hastings Doyle, Major-General Charles Joseph Doyle and Major-General Sir John Milley Doyle. A strong Guernsey connection is immediately apparent, for Sir John Doyle was Lieut.-Governor from 1802 to 1816 'and one of the most deservedly popular of our island rulers' (Tupper). In addition, Doyle's nephew, Charles Joseph Doyle, was appointed Captain in the 87th Prince's Own Regiment stationed in Guernsey in 1807. The author, Colonel Arthur Doyle, is the father of writer Arthur Conan Doyle, historical novelist and creator of Sherlock Holmes. This copy was formerly in the library of Edith Frances Carey, historian and author of Guernsey. It contains a number of relevant items of associated ephemera: 1) a long A.L.s to her from Lord de Saumarez, written from his residence at 43 Grosvenor Place London, mounted on front free endpaper; 2) an A.L.s, written on a postcard, from Henry Tupper, descendant of the Channel Islands historian Ferdinand Brock Tupper; 3) an engraved portrait of Major-General Sir Charles William Doyle (repeated as a plate) referred to in the correspondence; 4) a copy of Tupper's review of the present work, also mentioned in the postcard, as published in the 'Star' newspaper; 5) a cutting relating to the accidental death of Sir Everard Doyle. It is interesting to note that both de Saumarez and Tupper deliver in their correspondence less than favourable opinions of the work. 'it is rather carelessly compiled' (de Saumarez); 'it seems to me that Colonel Arthur Doyle is a regular plagiarist' (Tupper). A SPLENDID AND UNIQUE ASSOCIATION COPY WITH SEVERAL IMPORTANT GUERNSEY CONNECTIONS. Extremely scarce. Not in Thomson.

        Lengthy Autograph Letter Signed, 4 separate 4to sheets of onion skin stationery, n.p., n.d., but companion envelope postmarked, Baltimore, Apr. 21, 1911

      - Hartley writes to Anne Traubel in a long letter in which he discusses his loneliness, the nature surrounding him, and his working on his paintings. He had a close friendship with Anne and her husband, Horace Traubel (1877-1943), author and biographer of Walt Whitman ("With Walt Whitman in Camden," published 1906). Hartley begins with a comment that her "beautiful letter" arrived "in the silences.It is a beautiful message for any one to deliver, this dark man's message.I sit writing you after having started a picture, done a washing which lies purifying in the sun on the grass. This hermit life which I live - curiously unlike me, does not bring me all the happiness it should." He continues, "I am free to confess that as yet art has never been more than love and friendship nor has it been less - some would say it has nothing to do with either of them because art is purely intellectual and has little to do with the simple emotion - However I have painted on a picture - I have alluded to the needs of my body?and so I am feeling the loneliness in the presence of these beautiful unhuman things - there is too much peace, there is too much indifference too much of supremacy of mighty things?that know not what it is to be human?I desire only a human hand to touch a big broad shoulder to brush by?a smile to be conscious of ?These are the emotions that fill me here as the sun is nearly noon high?." He describes the vegetable garden he was planting earlier in the morning before painting. He mentions that the next day is, "Whitman's dinner day isn't it," and that he would like to attend to see people he would otherwise not meet. He mentions Mildred Bain. Frank and Mildred Bain were supporters and friends of Whitman and of the Traubels. Hartley sends his love to Horace and signs, "Marsden H." Small tear on the fourth page affecting one word, "dinner." Shortly before he wrote this letter, Hartley had exhibited 15 works in the Independents Exhibition. A group of New York artists sought to establish academy-independent shows in 1910 and 1911. The 1911 show, called the "Independent Exhibition of the Paintings and Drawings of Twelve Men," was held at the Society of Beaux-Arts Architects and organized by Rockwell Kent and Arthur B. Davies. In 1912, the year following our letter, Alfred Stieglitz offered Hartley his second solo show at Stieglitz' 291 Gallery. The show was quite successful, having sold a number of paintings to Agnes Meyer who became a benefactor. The sales to Meyer helped to enable Hartley to travel in Europe to study and paint. He left in 1912 and did not return until 1915.

Besides a 6 cm smudged repair to the front board in excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. A very rare and sought after publication.. New Edition, with preface and Introduction by W.H.Grattan Flood. Dublin, James Duffy and Co., 1911. Quarto. XXII, 368 pages - including the often missing Corrigenda Leaf (Errata). Original, illustrated Hardcover. Beautifully illustrated clothbinding that has been recently professionally restored. All edges gilt. New endpapers. Besides a 6 cm smudged repair to the front board in excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. A very rare and sought after publication. The Nation was an Irish nationalist weekly newspaper, published in the 19th century. The Nation was printed first at 12 Trinity Street, Dublin from 15 October 1842 until 6 January 1844. The paper was afterwards published at 4 D'Olier Street from 13 July 1844, to 28 July 1848, when the issue for the following day was seized and the paper suppressed. It was published again in Middle Abbey Street on its revival in September 1849. The founders of The Nation were three young men ?- two Catholics and one Protestant ?- who, according to the historian of the newspaper T. F. O'Sullivan, were all "free from the slightest taint of bigotry, and were anxious to unite all creeds and classes for the country's welfare.". They were Charles Gavan Duffy, its first editor; Thomas Davis, and John Blake Dillon. All three were members of Daniel O'Connell's Repeal Association, which sought repeal of the disastrous 1800 Act of Union between Ireland and Britain; this association would later be known as Young Ireland.The name suggested by Duffy for the paper was The National, but Davis disagreed, suggesting "that the use of an adjective for such a purpose was contrary to the analogies of the English language". He suggested The Nation, which was assented to by all three.. "We desired to make Ireland a nation," Duffy wrote, "and the name would be a fitting prelude to the attempt.". In due course and after many other consultations between the founders, the following announcement was made as to the date of publication, the name of the journal, and the contributors:. On the first Saturday in October will be published the first number of a; DUBLIN WEEKLY JOURNAL TO BE CALLED THE NATION, for which the services of the most eminent political writers in the country have been secured. It will be edited by Charles Gavan Duffy, Editor of The Vindicator, aided by the, following distinguished contributors:— JOHN O'CONNELL, ESQ., M.P.; Thomas Osborne Davis, Esq., Barrister-at-Law; W. J. O'Neill Daunt, Esq., Author of The Green Book, John B. Dillon, Esq., Barrister-at-Law Clarence Mangan, Esq., Author of Anthologia Germanica and Litterae Orientales; The Late Editor of the London Magazine and Charivari, J. C. Fitzgerald, Editor of The True Sun, And others whose names we are not at liberty to publish. The paper was first published on Saturday 15th October 1842. (Wikipedia)

        Peter and Wendy

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1911 Illustrated by Francis Donkin Bedford. First edition, first printing. Publisher's decorative olive green cloth designed by Bedford, with an illustration of Peter with mermaids and crocodiles within a vine frame to front board in gilt, illustration of Peter looking down on Captain Hook to the spine in gilt, lettered in gilt. Near fine, with a hint of rubbing to the extremities, bright spine, fresh gilt, some light offsetting to the free endpapers, minor spotting to the page edges, otherwise fresh and clean interior. Overall, a very bright and striking copy, seldom found in this condition. Peter and Wendy is the popular story of a mischievous young boy who refuses to grow up and spends his days flying and adventuring with his troop of Lost Boys on the island of Neverland. Peter Pan made his debut in Barrie's 1902 novel The Little White Bird, but his best-known appearances are as the title characters in Barrie's 1904 play Peter Pan, or the Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (published 1928), the 1906 novel after the play Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, and this 1911 novel Peter and Wendy. Notably, this edition contains the final chapter "When Wendy Grew Up," which tells of Wendy's return to Neverland as an adult with a child of her own. Today, this story is generally referred to by the shortened title Peter Pan.. Illus. by Beford, Francis Donkin. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Navajo, The

      Crystal, Navajo Reservation, New Mexico: Moore, J. B.. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1911. First Edition; First Printing. Pamphlet. Tan pamphlet with black and red design on front wrapper. Light soiling to wrappers; back bottom corner shows bent corner. Interior is exceptionally clean for this issue. This copy has no markings inside; the ink in the color plates has not smeared or run as if often the case. Staple binding is tight. John Bradford Moore arrived on the Navajo Reservation at Narbona Pass in 1896 and bought the seasonal trading post operation currently existing. He soon built a permanent building and named it the Crystal Trading Post. He hired young Navajo weavers, supplying them with locally sheared wool, which had been cleaned and carded back east. He also created numerous designs which his weavers would master, quickly weaving many rugs of the same designs. Crystal designs are often seen on the auction market today. Some historians also credit Moore with what we know as the Two Grey Hills design. He published two catalogs, in 1903 and 1911 which gave a short history of the Navajo rugs and why his rugs were superior. This 1911 catalog (we've never handled the 1903 catalog) includes 15 color plates and 1 black and white plate of rugs plus numerous photographs of weavers and the country in and around the Crystal Trading Post, supplied by Simeon Schwemberger. While fairly commonly seen in facsimile, original copies of this item are rarely seen, especially in this condition. ; Oblong Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 32 pp .

        In Northern Mists:

      London: William Heinemann,, 1911. Arctic Exploration in Early Times. Translated by Arthur G. Chater. 2 volumes, large octavo. Original grey-blue cloth, titles to spines gilt and to front boards in black, front boards with semi-circular gilt design of low sun over sea and mountains with approaching Viking longship, enclosed within concentric double panels in black. Coloured frontispiece with tissue guard to each volume, numerous woodcuts and engravings throughout. Spines slightly sunned, extremities a touch rubbed and bumped, mild cockling to cloth, prelims and endmatter lightly foxed, occasional light spotting to text block. A very good set. First edition in English of this historical survey. Volume I inscribed by the Canadian Polar explorer and anthropologist Vilhjalmur Stefansson (1879?-1962) to British glaciologist and polar scientist Charles Swithinbank (1926?-2014): "This great work -- the great Nansen's greatest book -- is a wedding gift to the Swithinbanks, handed to Mary on her first visit home to us since their marriage and to be delivered to Charles at the end of his first long absence, some time the spring 1961, as a loving gesture from his devoted friends. Evelyn and Stef, Christmas 1960." Stefansson and Swithinbank belonged to different generations of polar explorers; Stefansson participated in expeditions between 1906 and 1918, and Swithinbank was active between 1949 and 1986. However, Mary Swithinbank served as Stefansson's secretary while he was Director of Polar Studies at Dartmouth College and Stefansson and the Swithinbanks corresponded in the early 1960s. In Northern Mists was originally published in Norwegian in 1911.

        New York Department Store Pioneer B. Altman pays William Waldorf Astor $18,750!

      New York, New York, January 31, 1911. 6.5" x 2.75". "Partly Printed Check Signed ""Benjamin Altman,"" 6.5"" x 2.75"". New York, January 31, 1911. Drawn on the Astor Trust Company ""Safe Deposit Vaults,"" completed in manuscript, made payable to ""W.W. Astor"" for $18,750. Endorsed on verso ""W.W. Astor"" beneath stamping: ""Pay Astor Trust Company, / or Order / William Waldorf Astor."" One tiny bank cancellation hole on ""n"" of ""Benjamin."" Fine condition.The Astor Trust Company was a financial institution at 5th Avenue and 36th Street headed by John Jacob Astor IV, William Waldorf Astor's cousin. Benjamin Altman was a director and a stockholder in the Astor Trust Company. After Altman acquired property owned by W.W. Astor in 1910 on a long lease, he owned outright more than half of the block bordered by Fifth and Madison Avenues, between 34th and 35th Streets. What he did not own was held on long leases from Astor. This check most probably was payment for property leased by Altman from Astor.Benjamin Altman (1840-1913) founded the department store and chain, B. Altman & Co. in New York City in 1865. Altman's flagship store was on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street, across Fifth Avenue from the homes of brothers William B. Astor, Jr. (1829-1892) and John Jacob Astor III (1822-1890). When John Jacob Astor III died in 1890, William Waldorf Astor (1848-1919) inherited his father's share of the Astor holdings and, titularly, became the head of the Astor family. He tore down his father's house and replaced it with the Waldorf Hotel. The 13-story hotel was specifically designed to overshadow Mrs. Astor's mansion, which was right next door, in an attempt to overshadow her status with it.In 1891, William Waldorf Astor moved with his family to England, became an English subject in 1899, and was created Baron Astor in 1916 and Viscount Astor in 1917. Unwilling to live next door to the Waldorf Hotel, his aunt, Mrs. Astor, and her son, John Jacob Astor IV (1864-1912), tore down their house and erected another hotel at its site, the Astoria. Soon the two hotels merged and became the original Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. It was torn down in 1928-1929 to make way for the Empire State Building. The new Waldorf Astoria at Park Avenue and East 49th Street was completed in 1931."

        Photoalbum eines Mitglieds der deutschen Kolonialtruppen nach Tsingtau auf der "Nürnberg".

      um 1911.. 4° quer, Lackalbum der Zeit.. Interessantes privates Photoalbum eines Angehörigen der deutschen Schutztruppen auf dem Kleinen Kreuzer SMS Nürnberg nach China. Mit Kaufphotographien und privaten Photos aus dem Orient, der Überfahrt, den Soldaten, aus China und Japan etc. Lackbezug vorne mit kleiner Bruchstelle (ca. 4 cm), verso mit kleiner Fehlstelle (ca. 3x3x4 cm) und verso diversen Kratzspuren. Die Photos teils gebräunt und etwas lichtgebleicht, meist aber gut erkennbar. Unikat! - SMS Nürnberg war ein Kleiner Kreuzer der Königsberg-Klasse der Kaiserlichen Marine und wurde 1906 gebaut. Das Album wurde von Gustav Möckel (1892-1979) aus Quickborn zusammengestellt, der hier seine Reise auf der Fahrt nach Tsingtau dokumentiert. Beigelegt sind 3 japanische Postkarten, die Gustav Möckel handschriftlich verso mit seinen Erinnerungen an die Fahrt beschrieben hat! Die Nürnberg griff, gemeinsam mit der Emden und der Cormoran beim Aufstand der Sokehs auf der Insel Ponape Anfang 1911 ein. Ab Herbst 1911 war sie durch die chinesische Revolution an der chinesischen Küste gebunden und machte mit dem Geschwaderchef an Bord im Mai und Juni noch eine Fahrt auf dem Jangtse bis nach Hankau. Ende 1912 wurde sie auf der Tsingtauer Werft grundüberholt. Am 16. Oktober 1913 trat die Nürnberg in Yokohama eine Fahrt zur Westküste Mexikos an, um deutsche, österreichische und Schweizer Bürger zu schützen und die deutschen Interessen während der in Mexiko herrschenden Unruhen zu wahren. Möckel's Photos schließen die Überfahrt durch den Suezkanal bis China und Japan ein.

        A Hundred Years of Conflict. Being some Records of the Services of Six Generals of the Doyle Family 1756 - 1856. UNIQUE 'GUERNSEY' ASSOCIATION COPY

      Longmans Green & Co., 1911 Longmans Green & Co., 1911 8vo., First Edition, with a portrait frontispiece (original tissue guard present), and 10 plates; original red cloth, upper board framed and lettered in blind, gilt back, uncut, covers lightly age - marked else a very good, bright, clean copy. With the separately printed errata slip. The work includes accounts of General Sir John Doyle, Major - General Welbore Ellis Doyle, Lieut. - General Sir Charles Doyle, Major - General Sir Francis Hastings Doyle, Major - General Charles Joseph Doyle and Major - General Sir John Milley Doyle. A strong Guernsey connection is immediately apparent, for Sir John Doyle was Lieut. - Governor from 1802 to 1816 'and one of the most deservedly popular of our island rulers' (Tupper). In addition, Doyle's nephew, Charles Joseph Doyle, was appointed Captain in the 87th Prince's Own Regiment stationed in Guernsey in 1807. The author, Colonel Arthur Doyle, is the father of writer Arthur Conan Doyle, historical novelist and creator of Sherlock Holmes. This copy was formerly in the library of Edith Frances Carey, historian and author of Guernsey. It contains a number of relevant items of associated ephemera: 1) a long A.L.s to her from Lord de Saumarez, written from his residence at 43 Grosvenor Place London, mounted on front free endpaper; 2) an A.L.s, written on a postcard, from Henry Tupper, descendant of the Channel Islands historian Ferdinand Brock Tupper; 3) an engraved portrait of Major - General Sir Charles William Doyle (repeated as a plate) referred to in the correspondence; 4) a copy of Tupper's review of the present work, also mentioned in the postcard, as published in the 'Star' newspaper; 5) a cutting relating to the accidental death of Sir Everard Doyle. It is interesting to note that both de Saumarez and Tupper deliver in their correspondence less than favourable opinions of the work. 'it is rather carelessly compiled' (de Saumarez); 'it seems to me that Colonel Arthur Doyle is a regular plagiarist' (Tupper). A SPLENDID AND UNIQUE ASSOCIATION COPY WITH SEVERAL IMPORTANT GUERNSEY CONNECTIONS. Extremely scarce. Not in Thomson.

        Stilleben mit Pfirsichen und Melone" originales Ölgemälde auf Leinwand ca. 63x85cm; unten rechts signiert und datiert "(19)18" [Maße im schmucken Rahmen 78x100cm.]

      - 1911 hatte Fritz Wichert den jungen Dekorationsmaler aus bestem Mannheimer Hause entdeckt und nach Kräften gefördert. Karl Stohner verläßt Mannheim 1912, bevor er überhaupt volljährig ist, um auf Kosten des damaligen Kunsthallen-Direktors zu Studienzwecken zwei Jahre in Paris zu verbringen. Er lernt die Maler der Schule von Barbizon kennen und die Kunst von Degas, van Gogh und Renoir. Kaum aus Paris zurückgekehrt, sind Stohners Werke in der Galerie Buck in Mannheim zu sehen. Vier Jahre später, 1918, kauft der Maler Hans Thoma für den Großherzog von Baden eines von Stohners Bildern an. Der Mannheimer reist fortan quer durch Europa und arbeitet als Kunsthändler und -berater. Stohner fördert andere talentierte Künstler wie etwa Xaver Fuhr, den er an der von ihm gegründeten Freien Akademie in Mannheim unterrichtet. Doch irgendwann verpaßt er den Anschluß an die eigenen Erfolge als junger Mann. Nach 1945 bringt er keine bedeutenden Bilder mehr hervor. Und als er 1957 in Mannheim stirbt, hat er fast 20 Jahre nicht mehr ausgestellt. Die Mannheimer Kunsthalle besitzt 18 Bilder von Karl Stohner, die bisher jedoch nur selten zu sehen waren. An der Qualität seiner Werke liegt es nicht, sondern vielleicht an der Tatsache, dass er nicht unbedingt stilprägend arbeitet. Er schafft wundervolle spätimpressionistische Landschaftsbilder, Stadtansichten oder Stilleben, auf denen er wie sein Vorbild Cézanne Farbflächen auflöst oder gegeneinander setzt. [Aus dem Artikel "Kunst-Stück des Monats (Dezember 2009)" von Annika Wind im "Mannheimer Morgen"]

        Official Score Book: Pacific Coast League 1911

      [Vernon, California?]: Pacific Coast League. 1911. Stapled wrappers. (8pp.). One horizontal fold, bottom half of the front wrap age-toned, some marginal tears to a couple of pages. Program for a game between the Vernon Tigers of Vernon, California, and the Los Angeles Angels. The program features photos of a couple of the players, center score card/roster pages with the names of the players pre--printed, ballpark rules: "Bottle and cushion throwing prohibited," and some amusing baseball related advertising. Founded in 1903, the PCL was the highest level of western baseball until the Dodgers and Giants moved to California in the 1950s. Vernon was one of only two cities in Los Angeles County that was "wet" and with alcoholic beverages as an attraction, the Tigers attracted big crowds by the standards of the day, and won three pennants during their 17-year history. Very early memorabilia from the PCL is exceptionally scarce. .
