        Der Tod in Venedig [Death in Venice]

      Berlin: S. Fischer Verlag. 1st Edition. Soft cover. FIRST PRINTING IN EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of arguably Thomas Mann's most celebrated work. "At the beginning of 1911, Mann's health was poor and his development sluggish. Nothing he had published since Buddenbrooks had been received with such universal acclaim. He had planned but abandoned several long works, and had published chiefly short stories. Convinced that he needed to make a mark with a new piece that would appeal to current tastes, he poured all his mastery into Death in Venice … The story was written between July 1911 and July 1912 … Mann had intended it for S. Fischer's magazine, by that time merely called Die Neue Rundschau, but was uncharacteristically hesitant about submitting it once it was done-it was too innovative and personal. His wife convinced him to send it in. It was first published in the October and November 1912 issues" (S. Appelbaum). The publication in the October and November issues of Die Neue Rundschau preceded the rare limited edition printed by Hans von Weber. In: Die neue Rundschau (October and November issues, 1912; pp. 1368-1398; 1499-1526). Berlin: S. Fischer Verlag, 1912. Octavo, original publisher's printed wrappers. November issue with some marginal foxing; extra paper strip folded over outer margin of first page of November issue (not affecting Death in Venice). Very light edgewear to wrappers. SCARCE IN THE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS.

A Dramatic Poem by Richard Wagner Freely Translated in Poetic Narrative Form by T.W. Rolleston. Presented by Willy Pogany. London: G.G. Harrap & Co., n.d. [1911]. Limited to 525 copies signed and numbered by the artist, this being copy no. 241. Quarto. Sixteen mounted color plates including frontispiece, many full page two-tone illustrations, each page beautifully decorated. Full vellum, pictorially stamped in gilt. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. A fine copy with only a bit of light staining to spine. Housed in a blue cloth slipcase.William Andrew ("Willy") Pogany (born Vilmos Andreas Pogány) (August 1882 – 30 July 1955) was a prolific Hungarian illustrator of children's and other books. Pogany's best known works consist of illustrations of classic myths and legends done in the Art Nouveau style. He also worked as an art director on several Hollywood films, including Fashions of 1934 and Dames.The publication of Pogány's Tannhauser was the first act in his trilogy of masterworks focused on Wagner's Germanic tales, and one of the quintet that is considered his finest work. Pogány clearly approached the commission to improve and extend techniques that he had developed through his preceding work, particularly The Rubáiyat of Omar Khayyám, and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Along with Tannhäuser, Parsifal, and Lohengrin these five books immortalized his career as an llustrator. That commitment to ongoing innovation resulted in an incredible suite of illustrations, including color lithographs, monotone and marginal illustrations and the delightful tipped-in color plates (produced in four-color process) included in Tannhauser. Themes of medieval chivalry, erotic love and moral tests are illustrated in a lavish fashion by Pogány with an outstanding use of iconography, form and colour.

        New York Department Store Pioneer B. Altman deposits One Million Dollars in the Astor Trust Company - check endorsed by William Waldorf Astor

      New York, New York, June 30, 1911. 6.5" x 2.75". "Partly Printed Check Signed ""Benjamin Altman,"" 6.5"" x 2.75"". New York, June 30, 1911. Drawn on the Astor Trust Company ""Safe Deposit Vaults,"" completed in manuscript, made payable to ""Astir Trust Co."" for $1,000,000. Endorsed on verso ""W.W. Astor."" Tiny bank cancellation holes are not near signatures. 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.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."

        [Op. 10]. Zweites Streichquartett für 2 Violinen, Viola, Violoncell und eine Sopranstimme [III. u. IV. Satz: "Litanei u. Entrückung" Gedichte von Stefan George]... op. 10... Meiner Frau. [Parts]

      Wien-Leipzig Universal-Edition [PN 29949-d] [1911]. 4 volumes. Folio. Sewn. Laid into original publisher's wrappers with titling within decorative art nouveau border printed in lavender. Uniform title to each part within decorative art nouveau border printed in sepia. Violin I: [i] (title), 2-20 pp.; Violin II: [i] (title), 2-19, [i] (blank) pp.; Viola: [i] (title), 2-19, [i] (blank) pp.; Violoncello: [i] (title), 2-19, [i] (blank) pp. Facsimile of copyist's manuscript. Second, cue-size staff throughout third and fourth movement for vocal part and instrumental cue notes in all four parts. Text to upper wrapper: "Universal-Edition No. 2994 Arnold Schönberg Zweites Streich-Quartett op. 10 Stimmen." Publisher's catalogue, "Kammermusik," dated September 1911, to verso of lower wrapper. Handstamps to foot of upper wrapper: "London Augener Ltd"; to lower right corner of lower wrapper: "Net. 13/6." Wrappers split at lower spine. Slightly worn; edges browned. A very good, clean copy overall.. First Edition. Rufer (Engl.) pp. 29-30. Ringer p. 312. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 7- 8. The set of parts does not include a separate part for the soprano solo in the last two movements; the singer was, apparently, supposed to use a score. The score was published in February 1909, as a facsimile of Schoenberg's autograph. "The Second String Quartet is a landmark not only in the history of Schoenberg's activity as a composer but also in the development of modern music in general: the work embodies the transition from tonal to non-tonal composition. A further break with tradition is the addition of a soprano voice, as Schoenberg violated the framework of the genre, more than any other defined by the setup of its performing forces." Christian Martin Schmidt, Gesamtausgabe, Series B, vol. 20, p. xiv.

        In Northern Mists. Arctic Exploration in Early Times. Translated by Arthur G. Chater

      London, William Heinemann. 1911., 1911. First Edition. 2 volumes, 4to. Publisher's blue cloth, titles in gilt to spines, in black to front boards with black panelling and a gilt-stamped sunset illustration. Top edges tinted, others untrimmed. Colour tipped-in frontispiece with tissue guard to each volume and illustrated with several maps, charts and drawings. Light rubbing to extremities; browing to edges, end papers and last couple of leaves of each volume. Small bookseller label to paste down vol.II. A sound copy. Shows beautifully. This work is a history of Arctic voyages, not from reviewing other historians accounts - often copied from other writers - but from original sources. Fridtjof Nansen was born at Store Frøen, near Oslo in 1861, the son of a prosperous lawyer. As a young man, he was an expert skater, swimmer and skier, excelling in drawing and sciences at school. He studied Zoology at the University of Oslo. Nansen initially started out as a pioneer sports skier, and soon became interested in Arctic exploration. He led the first crossing of Greenland by ski, and achieved great success with his Arctic expedition aboard Fram. He later became noted as a zoologist and oceanographer, and was a pioneer of the neuron theory. He was also a distinguished diplomat, eventually becoming Commissioner of refugees for the League of Nations. (Wikipedia)

        4 Ms. Briefe mit eigenh. U.

      Bern und Wien, 1911-1915.. Zusammen 6 SS. auf 4 Bll. Gr.-4to. Mit einer Beilage (s. u.).. An Grete Meisel-Hess über u. a. den "Nobelfriedenspreis", die "Huebersache" und einen Vortrag, den Sie auf seinen Vorschlag hin in der Loge "Sokrates" halten solle. "[...] Ihre 'Entrüstung' über jede blödsinnige Zeitunngsnotiz wirkt auf mich etwas erschütternd. Ich glaube es Ihnen gesagt zu haben: vorschlagberechtigt für den Nobelfriedenspreis sind auf der Erde vielleicht zweihunderttausend Menschen; sämtliche Parlamentarier, Professoren an allen Universitäten etc. Jeder dieser zweihunderttausend Menschen hat zwei oder sieben oder achtundzwanzig gute Freunde, wobei einem eines Tages die Idee kommt, dieser oder jener würde den Preis verdienen. Er schreibt dann einen Brief für zwanzig Pfennige und 'schlägt vor'. Hat er irgend welche Beziehungen zur Oeffentlichkeit oder sonst Reklamebedürfnis, dann lässt er in den Zeitungen inserieren: X. X. habe den Y. Z. 'vorgeschlagen'. Solche Vorschläge zählen nach tausenden, oder sagen wir zumindest nach hunderten. Sie haben nicht den geringsten Einfluss, und das Nobelkomite ist so wenig dafür zur Verantwortung zu ziehen, wenn irgend ein Mensch als vorgeschlagen annonciert wird, wie es für die Strassenreinigung auf dem Mars zur Verantwortung zu ziehen ist [...]" (a. d. Br. v. 3. III. 1913). - Beiliegend ein eh. Brief mit U. von Frieds dritter Frau Therese (Röschen), geb. Vollandt: "Wir sitzen seit 5 Wochen in der friedsamen Schweiz. Aus vielen Gründen haben wir uns hierher zurückgezogen, - wo in der reinen Athmosphäre [!] Sinn und Gemüth frei gehalten wird von dem wahnsinnigen Völkerhaß [...]" (Bern, 1. XII. [1914]).

        Molieres sämtliche Werke. Band II-V (4 von 6 Bänden). Herausgegeben von Eugen Neresheimer.,

Die Ausgabe erschien zunächst in den Bänden 2 bis 5 bei Müller, der über der Herausgabe dieser Luxus-Werkausgabe verstarb. Nach Georg Müllers Tod im Jahre 1917 geriet sein Verlag in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten, was seine Nachfolger bewog, die kostspieligen Editionen klassischer Werke an die Ullsteins zu verkaufen, damals die bedeutendste deutsche Verlegerfamilie. Diese wollten ihr erfolgreiches Buchprogramm erweitern und hatten das notwendige Geld, um in solch aufwendige Editionen zu investieren. Den Namen Propyläen hielten sie - wie Goethe - für bestens geeignet, ihren neuen Verlag zu zieren. Er stand hinfort für große Werke der Geschichte und Kunstgeschichte sowie für aufwendig gestaltete und sorgfältig edierte Klassiker-Ausgaben. Die Bände 1 und 6 sind später im Propyläen-Verlag erschienen und hier nicht vorhanden. // Zustand: Die Einbanddecken zum Teil leicht fleckig. Die Bünde und Rückenkanten etwas berieben.
