A very fine set.Jules Verne (1828-1905), "French writer whose writings shaped the development of modern science fiction In 1863 Verne published the first of his Voyages extraordinaires—Cinq semaines en ballon (1863; Five Weeks in a Balloon). The great success of the tale encouraged him to produce others in the same vein of romantic adventure, with increasingly deft depictions of fantastic but nonetheless carefully conceived imaginary scientific wonders. The Voyages continued with Le Voyage au centre de la Terre (1864; A Journey to the Center of the Earth), De la Terre à la Lune (1865; From the Earth to the Moon), Vingt Mille Lieues sous les mers (1869-70; Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea), and L’Île mystérieuse (1874; The Mysterious Island), in which he foresaw a number of scientific devices and developments, including the submarine, the aqualung, television, and space travel. Verne’s novels were enormously popular throughout the world; one in particular, the grippingly realistic Le Tour du monde en quatre-vingt jours (1873; Around the World in Eighty Days), generated great excitement during its serial publication in Le Temps and remained one of his most popular works" (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature).

      The Cuala Press,, Churchtown, Dundrum [Ireland]: 1911 - First edition. One of 350 copies. This copy SIGNED by Yeats on title page where he has crossed out his printed name in ink and signed beneath it, "W B Yeats." John Millington Synge (1871- 1909) was an Irish playwright, poet, prose writer, collector of folklore, and one of the co-founders of the Abbey Theatre. He is best known for his play "The Playboy of the Western World," which caused riots during its opening run at the Abbey. He suffered from Hodgkin's disease, a form of cancer which at the time was untreatable. He died just weeks shy of his 38th birthday. Yeats says of Synge, "He was a drifting silent man full of hidden passion, and loved wild islands, because there, set out in the light of day, he saw what lay hidden in himself." Crème colored cloth spine and paper boards. Bottom on spine has a small dampstain, otherwise very good or better. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Die Kronprätendenten,

      Gesellschaft Der Bibliophilen, Weimar 1911 - 250 Exemplare, hier Nr. 23. Eine Prachtausgabe! Farbig marmorierter Hartkarton-Einband, Lederecken mit Goldverzierung, Lederrücken mit goldgeprägter Titelei, 6 Bünde, goldener Kopfschnitt, Exlibris im inneren Buchdeckel, auf schwerem, kartoniertem Papier gedruckt. "Dieses Buch wurde für die Gesellschaft der Bibliophilen auf der Privatpresse der königlichen Akademie für graphische Künste und Buchgewerbe zu Leipzig hergestellt. Satz: Georg Belwe. Buchdruck: Richard Berthold. Bilder und Initialen: Radiert von Alois Kolb. Georg Witkowski überwachte die Gestaltung des Wortlauts. Papier: Edmund Obst." 96 paginierte Seiten, mit teilweise ganzseitigen Radierungen, mit dekorativem, gemustertem Reispapier geschützt, einzeln signiert von Alois Kolb. Ein Meisterwerk der Buchkunst, minimalste Schieflage, kaum erkennbar, insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. "Henrik Ibsen(1828-1906) war im Jahre 1857, als er sein historisches Schauspiel "Die Kronprätendenten" schrieb, Theaterdirektor in Christiania. Er war nicht schon wie später Führer und Verführer, er war noch der Geführte; sein körperliches Auge war noch befangen in den engen Verhältnissen der nordischen Heimath, sein geistiges hatte noch nicht gelernt, die Nebel der Tradition, der später so viel gehaßten, zu durchspähen. Wie heutzutage bei uns die sozialen Dramen des vierten Standes in Mode sind, waren vor 30 Jahren im Norden die politischen Dramen des ersten Standes im Schwange. Die inneren Wirren, die das ganze 12. Jahrhundert hindurch am Marke Norwegens zehrten und die ihren Ursprung in dem auch auf außereheliche Kinder der Gewalthaber ausgedehnten Thronfolgerecht hatten, beschäftigten eine ganze Reihe von Dichtern dieses Landes, das auch heute noch nicht zur politischen Ruhe gelangt ist. Vor allen war es Adam Oehlenschläger, Björnstjerne Björnson und Andreas Munch, die ihre Federn in den Dienst der nationalen Dichtung stellten. Das letzte Schauspiel "Herzog Skule" deckt sich in vielfacher Weise mit Ibsens "Kronprätendenten". Beide behandeln den endlichen grandiosen Abschluß der Bürgerkriege durch König Hakon Hakonson, der sein angeborenes Recht gegen eine Welt von Widersachern vertheidigte, das Land beruhigte und vergrößerte und weit über dessen Grenzen hinaus gewaltigen Herrscherruhmes genoß, so daß ihm der Papst sogar den eigentlich nicht vakanten Deutschen Kaiserstuhl anbot."( Alois Kolb (1875-1942), Wiener Künstler, besonders als Buchillustrator und Exlibris-Künstler bekannt. In seinen grafischen Blättern erreichte Kolb eine malerische Wirkung, indem er seine Radierungen häufig mit anderen Verfahren wie z. B. der Ätztechnik kombinierte. Die Motive sind pathetisch inszeniert. Er war ein Bewunderer der Wagnerischen Musikdramen. 33 x 43 Cm. 2,4 Kg. Gewicht in Gramm: 2400 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Osiris and the Egyptian Resurrection ( 2 volumes ).

      Medici Society, London 1911 - Hardcovers. Small 4to. Two volumes. xxxvi + 404pp & vii + 440pp. Original red cloth with decorations in blind, blind titling to upper board, gilt titling to spines. Color frontis in both vols., 4 photogravure plates and 2 folding plates to Volume I, numerous drawings in-text to both volumes. Budge's massive study of ancient Egyptian belief in the afterlife, and in particular the worship of Osiris. The First Edition was published by Philip Lee Warner under his own name, with an unspecified number of copies appearing under the 'Medici Society' imprint. The which was a sort of "book club" founded in 1908 by Warner and Eustace Gurney, with the express aim of making works of great artistic and literary importance available to a wider public by issuing them at as low a price a commercially feasible. As far as we can ascertain the two issues were issued more or less simultaneously in 1911, with the only differences being in binding, title page, and the color frontis (which in the Warner-imprinted issues are folding.) Spine ends bruised and a little rubbed with a few tiny tears at upper spines, corners lightly rubbed, page edges a little darkened with a few spots of foxing, early and later pages lightly and unevenly browned. Overall a tight, bright VG+ set. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

ANDERSEN, Hans [Christian]. Stories from Hans Andersen. With Illustrations by Edmund Dulac. London: Hodder & Stoughton, [1911].Edition de Luxe, limited to 100 numbered copies printed on Japanese Vellum and signed by the artist, this copy being no. 20. Large quarto (12 1/8 x 9 3/4 inches; 309 x 249 mm.). viii, 250, [2] pp. Mounted color frontispiece, with descriptive tissue guard printed in black, and twenty-seven mounted color plates (included in pagination). Plates framed with thick pale green line border and accompanied by guard leaves printed in pale green with stylized pineapples on the recto and border of snowflakes above descriptive caption on the verso. Text pages with pale green snowflake borders at top and bottom. All leaves framed with double pale green lines.Original dark chocolate brown pigskin pictorially stamped with three-peacock design and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine, with Hodder & Stoughton gilt-stamped at spine foot. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Endpapers printed in pale green with repeated design of stylized peacocks. A stunning copy, unique, and arguably the finest copy of the De Luxe Edition. The binding and endpapers do not conform to Hughey's description, and appear to be unique to this handsome copy. As she notes, the pigskin binding, ("brandy colour," not dark chocolate-brown, as here), should only have two thin gilt rules as frame, gilt lettering, date 1911 on spine, and white endpapers, not illustrated as here and in the trade edition. We contacted her for insight. Having seen only two copies of the Edition De Luxe, William Randolph Hearst's and another viewed at a Washington book fair, she reports:"So, where does your copy fit in? And when was it bound? I tend to think it was done close to original printing time, November 1911. There were a lot of oddball copies done then.The title was sold very quickly - all sold by December 1911. The fact that your endpapers are paper available at the time [to the trade edition] tends to date it.It is possible that someone or firm had this done for your copy #20. Your copy's binding design on front cover is clearly an adaptation of the endpapers but I do not think by Dulac as it does not appear in any of his other editions of Hans Andersen's work. Someone may not have liked the plain cover."If that's the case, we'd like to thank them. This special copy is the better for it.Hughey 27.

All in all a very presentable copy of a very rare treatise on horsemanship dating back to 1200 BC. Endpps age toned, vintage Oxford bookstore sticker on frt pastdn. Provenance of this volume is from the library of Dr. William Lay, former MFH of the Oakbrook Hounds, IL. and bears his name/addy stamp on both endpps and pastdns, and one personal stamp on the lower margin of one inner page affecting no type. Frt hinge fine, rear inner hinge paper has a 2 in. crack in the center of the page, but all pages holding fine. Only the tissue guard on the frontis is half detached, plate is secure and going nowhere. 19 pg intro followed by 83 pgs of text. Frontis glossy plate and two line drawings in the text. Translated from the Urdu by Lieut.-Colonel D. C. Phillott, F.A.S.B. Secretary and Members Board of Examiners Calcutta; Fellow of the Calcutta University; Editor of the Faras-Nama of Hashimi, etc. Translator has dedicated this book to The Lord St. Davids In Memory of Bygone Days (as printed, not handwritten). Book was printed for Bernard Quaritch, 11 Grafton St, London by Norman and Son, Floral Street, Covent Garden London and bears a lovely acorn/oak leaf BQ crest on last page. From the translators intro: No Eastern treatise on the horse would be complete without a reference to some of the traditions regarding its origin. The present treatise, written by an Indian Muslim, deals with the Indian horse chiefly from a Muslim point of view. But, before giving an account of the Muslim traditions regarding the horse, I am tempted to say something gathered from Hindu writings. Phillpott then goes on in his 19 pg intro to discuss the very particular details of what a quality horse should look & behave like. He also shares the Hindu mythology of the four origins, castes or types of horses. By Hindus, horses are divided into four great castes: Brahman, Kshatriya, Vaishya, and Shudra. The horse that buries its muzzle up to the eyes when drinking is a Brahman; that which paws the ground while drinking is a Kshatriya; that which sucks in the water is a Vaishya; and that which shies at water and backs from it is a Shudra. The Brahman horse is brave in battle; the Kshatriya horse, even if it breaks down by riding, bears its master to the end of the stage; the Vaishya horse gallops and shies; the Shudra horse is a coward in war, throws its master in fight, and flees away, terrified. Just a brief sample of the fascinating reading within. Chapters include: Intro/ Reason for Writing The Book/ On the Points (WASF) of Horses/ On "Feathers"/ Traditional Defects/ On Spavin, Etc/ Eyesores and Defects/ On the Colours and Marks in Horses/ The Five Common Defects/ On the Best Breeding Districts (KHET) in India/ To Ascertain the Age of a Horse/ On the Treatment of Diseases/ The Treatment of the Foal/ On the Eight Forms of Colic (Kurkuri) and their Treatment/ Tetanus (Chandni-zada, adj., and Chandni, subs.)/ Chest-Founder (Chhati-band or Sina-band, adj.)/ Canker of the Foot/ Miscellaneous (4 chapters)/ On Ratib, Halwa and Khir/ Conclusion/ Appendix A: Signs Language and Jargon/ Appendix B: Miscellaneous Notes and Receipts from Various Indian Sources/ Appendix C: Vocabulary of Technical Terms.

        Lettre autographe signee.

      Honfleur, 10. VII. 1911.. 2 pages in-4to, en-tete manuscrite "La Chaumiere route de Trouville Honfleur (Calvados)".. Belle lettre de Guitry, agrementee de petits croquis, travaillant sur sa prochaine piece de theatre "Un Beau Mariage": "Je viens de recevoir ta lettre qui m'a fait tant de peine. Je te confirme ma depeche qui vient de partir, je travaille avec un acharnement que tu prends de loin pour de la lenteur. Et puis ce qui retarde encore l'envoi des 3 derniers actes c'est cette idee lumineuse que j'ai eue de faire imprimer mon manuscrit. Hier j'exprimais au prote mon impatience. Il me repondit avec un pauvre air navre: 'Monsieur, je manque de caractere!'. C'est touchant. Mais surtout, il ne faut pas que tu sois inquiet. Comme je ne veux pas que ton attente dure un jour de plus, voici la description illustree des deux decors que je souhaite pour les trois derniers actes. 2e acte [illustration a l'encre d'un decor] 3et 4eme actes [illustration a l'encre d'un decor]. Il n'ya d'indispensable dans ces deux decors que les deux portes et l'antichambre et la rampe d'escalier du 2eme acte, et, au 3eme et 4e actes ce qui est indispensable c'est l'herbe, les pommiers, l'entree de la maison, l'allee et un panorama au fond. Les arrangements que j'ai apportes a ma piece ne necessitent plus qu'un seul acte a condition qu'il dure une bonne demi heure. Et si cet acte doit toucher que 10 frs ce qui est son cas, je prefere qu'il soit d'un ami. Si on reprenait 'quand il y en a pour deux' hein? Et Dorgere? Je ne crois pas que ce soit une mauvaise idee. Ca peut peut-etre l'amuser de jouer sans payer. A ce propos je te communique trois petits projets d'affiches: [3 dessins d'affiche d'"Un Beau Mariage"] As-tu vu Madame Henriot pour le role de Madame Beauthier? Qu'est-ce qu'on fera pour la 10eme? Repetes le 1er septembre? Jamais je n'ai vu un homme aussi mechant que toi. As-tu recu tes crevettes? Bravo pour ton proces sur Bataille [...]". - Un Beau Mariage, comedie en 3 actes jouee pour la premiere fois au Theatre de la Renaissance en 1911.
