        Autograph letter signed in full to an unidentified male correspondent, addressed as "Herr Direktor"

      1 page. Octavo. Undated. In purple ink. In German (with translation). Zemlinsky thanks his correspondent for a letter and a present of candy that arrived in an inedible state. He mentions a visit from some friends who had brought news of him: "The pralines have arrived in the meantime ?- and I thank you most cordially for your good will ?- but they have arrived... Totally molded and leaked... I take comfort in the fable: If they had arrived well, they would have been ?"sour?" anyway... Recently the [?]Ziglers and [?]Heinz spent an evening with us. We talked a lot about you, and I was pleased to hear that you are doing extremely well with your [illegible]... Please give my best regards to [?]Jan Bredig." Date of receipt annotated in pencil to head: ?"angelangt 22 X 21 in [...] Prag?" (arrived in Prague October 22 [19]21). Slightly worn; pencilling to foot, partially erased. . "Although closely linked to the Second Viennese School (Schoenberg was his pupil), Zemlinsky was no outright revolutionary. While undisputedly a conductor of the first rank and an interpreter of integrity, he lacked ?'star quality?' and was overshadowed by more domineering personalities. His music is distinguished by an almost overpowering emotional intensity. It took several decades before it became known and began to be appreciated." Antony Beaumont in Grove online Zemlinsky was music director of the German opera in Prague from 1911 to 1927; the recipient of the present letter could thus be Leopold Kramer, the general director of the theater at that time.

        Studier over Metallernes Elektrontheori. Afhandling for den filosofiske Doktorgrad. DEDICATION COPY.

      Copenhagen: I kommission hos V. Thaning & Appel, 1911. Small 4to. Bound in the original dark full leather binding with gilt title to spine and gilt borders to front with topedge gilt, endpapers by Thorvald Bindesbøll. (6), 120 pages. Included is the original invitation slip for the public thesis defense. Spine and corners faded and with a bit of wear to the upper part of the spine.. First edition, first printing, one of very few presentation copies in soft gilt leather bound especially for Niels Bohr's family, closest friends and colleagues. From the collection of Ib Nørlund. Inscribed in ink by Niels Bohr to his friend, the historian Poul Nørlund (1888-1951), whose sister Niels Bohr married the year after, in 1912. A further inscription in pencil by Ib Nørlund, May 1933. From DSB: "Bohr's doctoral dissertation was a purely theoretical work that again exhibited a mastery of the vast subject he had chosen, the electron theory of metals. This theory, which pictures the metallic state as a gas of electrons moving more or less freely in the potential, created by the positively charged atoms disposed on a regular lattice, accounted qualitatively for the most varied properties of metals; but it ran into many difficulties as soon as a quantitative treatment was attempted on the basis of then accepted principles of classical electrodynamics. In order to throw light on the nature of these difficulties, Bohr developed general methods allowing him to derive the main features of the phenomena from the fundamental assumptions in a very direct way. He could thus clearly exhibit the fundamental nature of the failures of the theory, which were in fact attributed to an insuffiency of the classical principles themselves. Thus, he showed that the magnetic properties of the metals could in no way be derived from a consistent application of these principles. The rigor of his analysis gave him, at this early stage, the firm convictions of the necessity of a radical departure from classical electrodynamics for the description of atomic phenomena'

        Gestes et Opinions du Docteur Faustroll, Pataphysicien: Roman Néo-Scientifique, Suivi de Spéculations

      Paris: Bibliothèque-Charpentier, Eugène Fasquelle, Éditeur, 1911. First Edition. One of Jarry's most important works, though unpublished in his lifetime. Most likely begun in 1894 and completed before 1897, Faustroll was the author's attempt at a treatise on his pseudo-scientific philosophy "Pataphysics," in which the author defined it as "the science of imaginary solutions, which symbolically attribute...the properties of objects, described by their virtuality, to their lineaments" (translation of Simon Watson Taylor). When Jarry submitted the manuscript in 1897, his then-editor Alfred Vallette of the Mercure de France declined to publish it, both due to a personal conflict and the work's general unreadability, and it wasn't until four years after the author's death (in 1907) that Eugène Fasquelle acquired and published one of the two extant manuscripts of the work. (See Alastair Brotchie, Alfred Jarry: A Pataphysical Life, pp. 29-30.). Small octavo (18.5cm); original yellow decorative wrappers; [4],323,[1]pp. Spine darkened and a touch cocked, small chip to upper cover fore-edge, extremities a bit toned, else a Near Fine copy.

        The Secret Garden

      London: William Heinemann,, 1911. Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark green morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, pictorial block to front board gilt, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, floral endpapers, gilt edges. With 8 colour illustrations by Charles Robinson. A fine copy. First edition, first impression. The Secret Garden was first serialized, starting in autumn 1910, in The American Magazine, a publication aimed at adults. The entire book was first published in the summer of 1911 by Frederick A. Stokes in New York and simultaneously by Heinemann in London. The American edition was illustrated by M. B. Kork, whereas the English edition has illustrations by the prolific illustrator Charles Robinson, whose younger brothers Thomas Heath Robinson and William Heath Robinson also became illustrators. Born in Manchester, England, Burnett moved several times back and forth between England and America, before adopting US citizenship in 1905. The novel was mainly written in Buile Hill Park while visiting Manchester in 1904, but published while she was living in Plandome Manor, New York. During her lifetime her rags-to-riches story Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886) was a publishing sensation, although over the years The Secret Garden has retained the popularity that Little Lord Fauntleroy has lost.

        Äskulap als Harlekin. Humor, Satire und Phantasie aus der Praxis. Von SERENUS.

      Wiesbaden, J. F. Bergmann 1911.. 8°. VI(2) S. (Titelei), 218 S., 4 Bll. (Verlagsanz.). Unbeschn. OKart. m. schwarzgepr. Tit. in ornamentaler Einrahmung auf Vorderdeckel. Einrisse auf Vorderdeckel, der vord. Rückenkante u. Schmutztit. mit säurefreien Klebeband unterlegt; im Falz aufgeplatzt, Bindung dadurch etw. gelockert; im Text sauber.. Mühlleitner 323. Erste Ausgabe. Sammelband mit 30 Anekdoten aus der ärztlichen Praxis, unter Pseudonym verfasst von dem aus der Bukowina stammenden Arzt und Psychoanalytiker Wilhelm Stekel (1868-1940). S. promovierte 1893 in Wien an der Medizinischen Fakultät. Vor seiner Niederlassung als Nervenarzt absolvierte S. noch eine neurol.-psychiatrische Ausbildung u.a. bei Krafft-Ebing. 1902 trat er mit Sigmund Freud in Kontakt und ließ sich von ihm analysieren. Er regte Freud zur Gründung der Mittwoch-Gesellschaft an, aus der später die 'Wr. Psychoanalytische Vereinigung' hervorging. Zusammen mit Alfred Adler in deren Vorstand gewählt, verließen beide kurze Zeit später die Gruppe im Dissens mit Freud. Anlaß für den Austritt Stekels war eine Kontroverse um das 'Zentralblatt für Psychoanalyse', dessen Schriftleitung er seit 1910 innehatte. Stekel wurde innerhalb der psychoanalytischen Bewegung hauptsächlich durch Traum- und Symboldeutungen bekannt und er formulierte erstmals die Hypothese von einem 'Todestrieb'. (vgl. dazu auch ÖBL XIII,203). - Auf Schmutztitel m. eh., signierter und datierter Widmung des Verfassers an seinen Berufskollegen, 'den Weltmenschen M.G. Mandelik' sowie in Beilage ein maschinschr., 21-zeiliger Brief, von Stekel eh. unterzeichnet. In dem mit 31. III. 1913 datierten Schreiben, auf dem Briefpapier des 'Zentralblattes f. Psychoanalyse', (das S. auch nach seinem Bruch mit Freud - dessen Namen er im Briefkopf m. Rotstift ausgestrichen hat - noch bis zum Beginn des ersten Weltkrieges edierte), bedankt S. sich bei dem Empfänger für die Widmung des Buches, mit dem wohl das 1912 erschienene Werk 'Selige Botschaft. Ein Buch der Liebe' von Mandelik gemeint hat: "...eine brüderliche Seele sprach mir aus allen Zeilen. Was trennt uns denn? Dass wir jeder eine andere Brille tragen,... Sie eine rosenrote, ich eine dunkle, graue. Aber hinter der Brille, das Auge und das Herz sind uns gemeinsam."

        Before the Lamps are Lit

      Melbourne: George Robertson, c., 1911. Oblong quarto, frontispiece, plates; illustrated cloth, a little shaken, hinges repaired but a very good copy. Attractive children's book of six stories with engravings by eminent illustrator Ida Rentoul Outhwaite. Both Tarella (Ella) Quin and Ida Rentoul Outhwaite had attended East Melbourne Presbyterian Ladies' College, Ella was 11 years older and it was through her younger sister Hazel that the association occurred. In Anderson's Singing Roads, Hazel writes "I mentioned that there was a girl at school who was always decorating the edges of her exercise books with drawings of fairies"Her father, Edward Quin, who was at one time a member of the New South Wales Legislature, owned a dairy farm called 'The Leasowes' near Fern Tree Gully and a sheep station called 'Tarella' in far western New South Wales between Wilcannia and White Cliffs. One of eight children, 'Ella' was educated in Adelaide, but spent most of her life on stations. The summers there were exceedingly hot, and whenver possible her mother sent the girls south to 'The Leasowes' for the summer months. Ella's first writing was short sketches of station life, published under the pseudonym 'James Adare' in the Pastoral Review. At the editor's suggestion, she wrote some stories for children, which she forwarded to Ethel Turner (Mrs Curlewis) (q.v.), hoping to have them published in Sydney newspapers. However, Turner strongly recommended that they be published as books, and so her first book, Gum Tree Brownie, came to be published in 1910. Ella's younger sister, Hazel, was at school with Ida Rentoul, and it was through this association that Ida Rentoul Outhwaite (q.v.) came to illustrate Quin's children's stories. Ella married T. M. Daskein, one of the proprietors of Morden Station in far northwest NSW.Outhwaite was both original and prolific: 'the marked success of her work in capturing the imagination of a large audience was the direct impetus behind the spate of finely produced and illustrated Australian children's fantasy books of the 1920s.' (Holden, Visions of Fantasy).A most desirable showcase of this important Australian illustrator's work.

        The Novels of the Sisters Bronte: Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Shirley, Villette, The Tenant of Wildfe.[12 Volume Set]

      John Grant, Edinburgh 1911 - Octavo, Gilt lettered and decorated cover and spine. Top edges are gilt. Charlotte (April 21, 1816 March 31, 1855), Emily (July 30, 1818 December 19, 1848) and Anne (January 17, 1820 May 28, 1849), were English writers of the 1840s and 1850s. Their novels caused a sensation when they were first published and were subsequently accepted into the canon of great English literature. Charlotte and Emily had written compulsively from early childhood and were first published, at their own expense, in 1846 as poets under the pseudonyms Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell. The book attracted little attention, selling only two copies. The sisters returned to prose, producing a novel each in the following year. Charlotte's Jane Eyre, Emily's Wuthering Heights and Anne's Agnes Grey were released in 1847 after their long search to secure publishers. The novels attracted great critical attention and steadily became best-sellers, but the sisters' careers were shortened by ill-health. Emily died the following year before she could complete another novel, and Anne published her second novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, in 1848, a year before her death. Upon publication Jane Eyre received the most critical and commercial success of all the Bronte works, continuing to this day. Charlotte's Shirley appeared in 1849 and was followed by Villette in 1853. Her first novel, The Professor, was published posthumously in 1857. The first biography of Charlotte was written by her friend Elizabeth Gaskell and published in 1857. A most handsome set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [Milwaukee]: [S. E. Tate Printing Company], 1911. First Edition. Hardcover. A spectacular, as new copy of a very scarce book. Duodecimo (5-1/4" x 7-3/4") bound in bright blue publisher's cloth with gilt lettering on the front cover; 115 pages. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait and several plates. Brown describes meeting Frederick Douglass and touring with Susan B. Anthony as well as her experiences as a minister. Bookplate of Brown's daughter; Gwendolen Brown Willis, on the front free endpaper. Olympia Brown (1835-1926) was refused admission to the University of Michigan because of her gender and instead attended Mount Holyoke College and Antioch University. She decided to become a preacher because she wanted to counter the prevalent and, she believed, erroneous "doctrine of endless punishment" offered by traditional hellfire-and-brimstone ministers. She had to argue to gain admittance to the Universalist Divinity School at St. Lawrence University where she became the first female graduate of a mainstream theological school. In 1863, when she was posted as minister to a congregation in Weymouth Landing, Massachusetts, she was the only female granted full clergy status in any mainstream Christian denomination. Almost as soon as she arrived in Massachusetts, she became active in the women's suffrage movement. She was later posted at a church in Bridgeport, Connecticut--where circus master P. T. Barnum was in her congregation--but received little support from her congregation, where a traditionalist faction sought to have her removed from the pulpit during her first pregnancy. She was unemployed for two years, before accepting a post at the struggling Church of the Good Shepherd in Racine, Wisconsin, which had been without a regular minister for several years. At Racine, she granted female church members equal voting rights on church matters and brought in such guest speakers as Susan B. Anthony, Julia Ward Howe, Mary Livermore, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. In 1887, just after her father's death, she switched her life's priorities, becoming a part-time minister and a full-time activist for women's rights. She served as Vice President of the National Woman Suffrage Association, founded the Federal Suffrage Association in 1892 (which became the Federal Equality Association), and became one of the first members of the more radical and confrontational Woman's Party when it was formed by Alice Paul in 1913. She was one of the last of the "old time suffragettes" who lived to see women granted voting rights in 1919. After casting her first ballot in 1920 at the age of 85, she became active in the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Her church in Racine has since been renamed Olympia Brown Unitarian Universalist Church. Gwendolen Brown Willis (1876-1969) was the daughter of John Henry Willis (owner of the Racine Times Publishing Company) and Olympia Brown (who kept her maiden name after marriage). She spent part of her life teaching classics at the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore and wrote a few books (including finishing her mother's autobiography) before moving back to Racine where she died in 1969 having never married.
