        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.

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. .

        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.

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."

        Latest Fashions - Fall and Winter, 1911-12.

      Chicago: Schoenbrun & Company, 1911 - Folio (475 × 360 mm) Original black cloth-backed black light card wraps with Arts and Crafts style title-panel printed in black, grey and russet gold to the upper wrap, original twisted cotton loop at the top of the spine to hang up the catalogue. Wraps a little rubbed and soiled, some marginal finger-soiling to the plates, and closed splits in the lower margin, but overall very good. 16 coloured fashion plates, some with uncoloured remarques of back features. Superb Edwardian fashion catalogue for men's suits, leisure suits, and evening wear. The colour lithography in this catalogue beautifully executed, and very striking visually. Although the artwork is unsigned, it reflects the influence of Harrison Fisher, Howard Chandler Christy, and other famed illustrators of the period. The backgrounds include men in suits with fashionably dressed Edwardian women, on the Ocean Liner deck, next to a brass-lamped automobile, in front of Pullman Railroad Cars, even one showing a man in vest and slacks changing a tire on an automobile. The catalogue offers such styles as the Sack Coats with more closely fitting waist & back, trowel shaped labels, and natural shoulder; frock, full dress and Prince Albert Coats; the Tuxedo, as well as vests overcoats, trousers, and more. The Schoenbrun Company was noted for their high quality fabrics, including Harris Tweeds, West of England and Belgian Wide Wale Worsteds, Coronation Cheviots, as well as domestic wool blends of Knickerbocker Tweeds, Hockanums, chevron stripes and worsteds, and more. The Schoenbrun Company was perhaps best remembered for their annual promotion urging men to come in and be measured for their Easter Suit which continued up until World War I. No copies located on OCLC. The versos of some plates ruled in pencil, with the lyrics of popular songs of the period - A Long Way to Tipperary, and When you wore a Yellow Tulip, being two of them - neatly pencilled onto three by a young Nellie Lee of Stanton, Michigan, whose ownership signature is on first leaf. The catalogue is accompanied by Nellie's extensive collection of "paper dolls", figures painstakingly trimmed from the fashion plates of catalogues and magazines, and previously housed in envelopes between the pages of the present catalogue.

        Der Tod in Venedig [Death in Venice]

      Berlin: S. Fischer Verlag. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. 
FIRST PRINTING IN ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S BINDING 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 half-vellum. Bound together with six issues (7-12, 1912) covering the second half of the year. General light wear to binding. Rare, particularly in the original publisher's binding.

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)
