        Wonderful Testimonies Plaot Edut The Book of Esther

      Printed by Aaron Jacob Divekar at the Mukti Mission Press. Published by Pandita Rambai, Kedgaon 1911 - Not in Yaari? Fragile, first page browned, some damage to bottom corner of last few leaves. 24 leaves plus paper-thin wrappers. The front wrapper has the full title, author, publisher, place, date. There are other volumes, but I only have the book of Esther OCLC: Only 3 libraries world wide own this and none have a complete set. Issued in parts; each part has special t.p. Hebrew, with 4 interlinear English versions. The Hebrew words of the Bible with interlinear translations in English, arranged by Pandita Ramabai, preparatory to a version of the Bible in Marathi which she intended publishing. Pandita Ramabai (23 April 1858 - 5 April 1922) was a social reformer and activist in India. She was born as Brahmin Hindu and being well learned in the languages and Hindu texts was conferred the title "Pandita' by the distinguished educators of Calcutta University in 1878. However she became disillusioned later, by the deception practiced by priests, superstition and plight of women depicted in the Hindu texts. It was at this point that Ramabai resolved to spend her life attempting to better the status of women in India. She later converted to Christianity, and served widows and helpless women of India. She started Arya Mahila Samaj, which is Sanskrit for Noble Women's Society. The society purposed to work for the deliverance of Indian women from the oppression of child marriage. Bursting with zeal for her cause, Ramabai labored for both their spiritual and physical betterment. In a lecture given in June 1882, she pronounced, Men look on us women as chattels: we make every effort to deliver ourselves from this situation. But some will say that this is a rebellion against man, and that to do this is sin. To leave men's evil acts unrebuked and remain unmoved before them is a great sin. In an address to Lord Ripon's Education Commission, she declared with fervor, In 93 cases out of 100 the educated men of this country are opposed to female education and the proper position of women. If they observe the slightest fault, they magnify the grain of mustard-seed into a mountain, and try to ruin the character of a woman. Ramabai was also a poet and scholar. In order to learn more about the education of women and receive training for her lifelong battle to help unshackle the women in India, she visited most parts of India, and even went to Britain (1883) and the United States of America (1886¿88). During this time she also translated textbooks and gave lectures throughout the United States and Canada. Somehow she also found time to write and get published one of her most important books, The High-Caste Hindu Woman. This was also the first book that she wrote in English. Ramabai dedicated this book to Dr. Anandibai Joshi, the first Indian woman to earn a medical degree through training in Western medicine, who died in February 1887, less than 6 months after returning to India from America. The High Caste Hindu Woman, which, according to her beliefs, showed the darkest aspects of the life of Hindu women, including child brides and child widows, sought to expose the oppression of women in Hindu-dominated British India. Ramabai was born into an intellectual Hindu Marathi-speaking Chitpavan Brahmin family at Karnataka (Karkala Taluk, Mangalore District). Her father, Anant Shastri Dongre,who stayed at a place in western ghats called Gangamoola,(Mala village,Karkala,Karnataka) was not a Sanskrit scholar and believed that women should have education and supported women learning Sanskrit from his study of the Hindu texts. Against the prevailing traditional Hindu social structure, he taught Puranas and Sanskrit shlokas to Ramabai as well as his second wife, Ramambai¿s mother Laxmibai and how to read and write Sanskrit as well as how to interpret vedic texts. By the age of twelve, she had memorized 18,000 verses from the Puranas. Besides Sanskrit, Ramabai leaned the Marathi, Kanarese, Hundustani, and Bengali languages. Her father faced hardships as [Attributes: Soft Cover]

"Leicht möglich, dass den einen oder anderen Beschauer - der an eine fromme und sanfte Auffassung des Hohen Liedes gewöhnt ist - die starke männliche Sinnlichkeit seiner Visionen, die Wildheit der Linien, die Kühnheit der Farben erschrecken. Aber wessen Seele ein starker Trunk mundet, wem die Brust sich weitet beim Anblick des Ausbruches eines grossen Temperamentes, einer originellen Phantasie, einer männlichen Kraft des Ausdruckes, der wird den Visionen Corinths, die in dem neuen Werk der Pan-Presse niedergelegt sind, ein dankbarer Beschauer sein. Dieses letzte Werk der Pan-Presse bedeutet technisch ein Novum. Corinth malte die Bilder auf den Stein, und die sorgliche Hand einer Schülerin des Kunstgewerbemuseums, des Fräulein Penzig, schrieb auf denselben Stein die Buchstaben. Das Papier dieses Buches wurde von keiner Buchpresse berührt; zu gleicher Zeit wie die Bilder druckte die Steinpresse die schwarzen Buchstaben auf den gemeinsamen Grund" (aus der Ankündigung im Börsenblatt, zitiert nach Feilchenfeldt-Brandis). - Alle Tafeln rückseitig mit winzigem Sammlerstempelchen versehen, sonst kaum sichtbare Fingerfleckchen und wenige minimale blasse Stockfleckchen, insgesamt sehr gute Innenerhaltung.

Affectionately yours, Jack London, Glen Ellen, Mar. 19, 1911." London habitually called his good friend Carlton Bierce "Carlt."

These included Jack & Charmian London, George and Carrie Sterling, George Wharton James, Mary Austin, Xavier Martinez, Dick & Blanche Partington, et al. (See Walker, Franklin.

Churchill continues the story: "The days passed in much discomfort. Fever flickered in and out.The doctors tried to keep the work away from my bedside, but I defied them. They all kept on saying, 'Don't work, don't worry,' to such an extent that I decided to read a novel. I had long ago read Jane Austen's SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, and now I thought I would have PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Sarah (his daughter) read it to me beautifully from the foot of the bed. I had always thought it would be better than its rival. What calm lives they had, those people! No worries about the French Revolution, or the crashing struggle of the Napoleonic Wars. Only manners controlling natural passion as far as they could, together with cultured explanations of any mischances. All this seemed to go very well with M and B (May & Baker, the pharmaceutical firm that supplied his anti-pneumonia drugs)." Heavy Set-will require additional postage. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ALS & photographic portrait of Giacomo Puccini.

      1911 - A striking black and white photographic portrait of the Italian composer of opera, including La Boheme, Tosca, Madama Butterfly, and Turandot. With a handwritten and signed note. The note is on letterhead 'Torre del Lago, Toscana', and dated September 30, 1911, and reads "My Dear Tonino, I stopped by to say hello to you and the young lady, but nobody was at home. I am leaving for London and Liverpool, and I shall be back in about twelve days. I am having an addition built to my existing cement dock extending out on the lake. I shall have it built with wood, covered by sheet metal, three meters by five. I am telling you this so that you may notify the town authorities. Our friend, Nasone, continues to spoil my hunting expeditions by preceding me with his early morning walks and flushing out whatever game there is. How long can this go on, I ask you? If this continues, I shall wind up asking you to introduce me to the sport of fishing, and I shall make you an offer you cannot refuse. By the way, let me know when Nasone's contract expires. We are all well and I shall write again. Adieu. P. S. Should we buy the little motorboat that Sargentini cut down in size? It would be very useful to me. It could be used instead of the three row boats which I keep on the dock." It is signed Puccini. The letter is addressed to Antonio Bettolacci, a friend and the administrator of the Marchese Ginori, which was across Lake Massaciuccoli. The "young lady" referred to is most likely Maria Bianca Ginori, the daughter of Carlo Ginori. Sargentini was the Ginori family chauffeur and mechanic. The photograph 4 3/4 x 6 3/4".

Published before Schonberg began work on his 12-tone [twelve-tone] system in 1922, he was a traditionalist and friend of Gustav Mahler, to whom this book is lengthily dedicated. This book hints at the concepts in harmony that would later dominate Schonberg's work, a transition that would become a major influence on the expressionist movement not only in German music, but also in poetry, art and cinema. & & Very Good in original pale green Art Nouveau-style wrappers. Neat cello tape repairs at the crown and heel of the wrapper, wear along the outer edges of same, slight roll to the spine. Overall, a bright, clean copy of a rare musical document.

        The Army of God Knows Where

      Chicago: The American Asphaltum & Rubber Co.. [1911]. First. First edition. One sheet folded and ribbon tied to make four pages. Very light pencil name, light edgewear, still a just about fine copy of this attractively printed pamphlet. The only known copy of one of Damon Runyon's first separate publications, a poem printed by an asphalt company, and dedicated to "Our Civil Engineers." The poem originally appeared in Bohemian Magazine in Boston, probably in 1910. A report of this separate publication was printed in Volume XLII, the January-June 1912 Municipal Engineering Index. The poem is also reprinted in Runyon's acknowledged first book, The Tents of Trouble, a volume of poems in flexible boards published in 1911. His best known book, Guys and Dolls, was not published until 1931. Whether this volume precedes the poem's appearance in The Tents of Trouble (making this his first book), or follows that but precedes his next publication, Rhymes of the Firing Line (making this his second book), we are unable to determine. But we can locate no additional copies of this pamphlet and it is clearly rare. .
