        DAS PUPPENHAUS [THE DOLLS HOUSE]

      MEGGENDORFER, LOTHAR. MEGGENDORFER,LOTHAR. DAS PUPPENHAUS [THE DOLLS HOUSE]. Essingen & Munich: Schreiber, no date, circa 1911.

This is a pop-up panorama that opens to form 6 scenes some of which need assembling by the child and are then reusable. There are 2 outside and 4 detailed interior rooms of a doll's house. As unfolded to its full length of four feet, people, furniture, and even fixtures pop-out and each of the scenes is rich in detail. There is even a piano with a bust of Beethoven on the top. See Haining (p. 127) who reproduces the French edition of the entire panorama called Maison de Poupee. Due to its popularity it was issued over the years with a few changes to reflect the times; for instance the gypsy cart is replaced here by a motorcar. It is rare to find any mechanical in such magnificent condition, let alone in the box. This is certainly one of the most elaborate and charming of the mechanicals issued by Meggendorfer.

        Les Choses vues par Georges Lepape.

      Paris Maquet 1911 - 4to (33.5 x 30.5 cm). No. 146 from deluxe run of 300 copies (of total edition of 1000), with three plates on papier des manufactures impériales du Japon. Title, limitation page with monograms of Poiret and Lepape, 11 colour pochoir lithographs (1 folding) highlighted in gold; upper blank loose. Publisher's illustrated card boards, housed in elaborate black and red exotic hardwood box with white shark leather inlay by Antonio Perez-Noriega, pupil of Jean de Gonets; very slightly rubbed, small restoration to joints and back. Loosely inserted 2 pp. manuscript letter from Max Knaake to Poiret dated 2 March 1915. One of 300 deluxe copies in an extraordinary slip case by a pupil of Jean de Gonets. Presented by Poiret to the German art director and filmmaker Max Knaake, the book was later sent back to the former for safe keeping during the turbulent war years. Fine association copy. 'Très rare.' (Carteret) These magnificent plates present designs by Paul Poiret (1879 – 1944), one of the most influential and notorious designers of the early XX century. His gowns followed the natural line of a slim, uncorseted body, although many women still had to resort to longline corsets to achieve the same effect. Compared to the elaborately detailed and constructed gowns that many fashion designers produced, his designs were audaciously simple and bold, and sometimes quite far-sighted. For example, his robe de minute, a gown made of two rectangles of fabric, was created in 1911, ten years before near-identically constructed chemise dresses became widespread. The models' heads are simply wrapped in colourful turbans, in contrast to the elaborately arranged coiffures that many fashionable women favoured. The inscription, by Poiret, reads: 'à M. Max Knaake Berlinois mais qui mériterait d'être Parisien' [To Max Knaake, who is from Berlin but deserves to be a Parisian.] The book is accompanied by a manuscript letter sent by Knaake to Poiret at the beginning of the First World War. Written in almost perfect French on 2 March 1915, the letter is a testament to the deep friendship between the two. In it, Knaake reflects on his collaboration with Poiret in Cologne, where he was involved in the designer's first exhibition in 1914, and the events that led to his current circumstances; Knaake was in France when the war broke out, but managed to escape to Corsica, where he stayed in a convent under official scrutiny and with strict limitations placed on his communications with the external world. In the second part of the letter Knaake politely asks Poiret to keep the book safe until the situation changes, as it is very dear to him, particularly because of the designer's presentation inscription. He expresses deep gratitude for Poiret's help and friendship and finishes: 'The world is big and art has no Motherland.' Carteret IV, 322; Colas 1837; Monod 9205; Lipperheide Fc 67.

        Behind Turkish Lattices. The Story of a Turkish Woman's Life.

      - Philadelphia, Lippincott, 1911. 8vo. Original green cloth, lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, illustrated in white and gilt; pp. ix, 179, frontispiece and numerous plates after photographs; minimal rubbing to cloth, text a little brown-spotted, otherwise very good. First edition of a scarce and important title. 'Hester Donaldson Jenkins (1869-1941), a professor at the American College for Girls in Constantinople from 1900-1909, wrote enthusiastically about the Young Turks, who in 1908 established a constitutional monarchy in the Ottoman Empire. They seemed to Jenkins to promise new freedoms for Ottoman women. In this book Jenkins uses her own observations of Constantinople, her students, and their families to construct an account of a typical Turkish Muslim womans life cycle at this turning point in Ottoman history. She intends her comments on childhood, education, marriage, polygamy, and divorce to correct Western misapprehensions and she notes how Ottoman women selectively adopted Western customs, such as European clothing, and increasingly practiced monogamy. Jenkins' corrective is only partial, however, for she describes Turkish women as childishly charming but sadly ignorant and in need of the uplifting influences of Western education. In its confidence in the bright prospects of American influence and Ottoman reform, this book captures an optimistic moment in which social progress seemed to prevail against the looming social and ethnic divisions of the Balkan and First World Wars' (blurb from a modern re-edition).

        Small craft warnings. A New Directions Book. Book Club Edition.

      92 Seiten (1 Blatt) mit Frontispiz von Fred Voelpel. 8, gebundene Ausgabe, Leinen mit Schutzumschlag, dieser sauber in Folie eingeschlagen, Schutzumschlag-Fotografie: Felipe Napoles, Gestaltung von Gertrude Huston, auf dem fliegenden Vorsatz mit Kurzwidmung und Signatur von Tennessee Williams, sauberes, frisches Exemplar im Bestzustand, mit beiliegendem Echtheitszertifikat. Tennessee Williams (* 26. März 1911 in Columbus, Bundesstaat Mississippi - + 25. Februar 1983 in New York City eigentlich Thomas Lanier Williams III) war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Den Spitznamen Tennessee erhielt er von Collegefreunden an der University of Missouri, weil er den Akzent, der im Bundesstaat Tennessee gesprochen wird, sprach. Seine Großeltern, bei denen er oft und gern zu Besuch war, lebten immer noch dort, was für seinen Akzent prägend war. Das in Hollywood zunächst abgelehnte Script für Die Glasmenagerie markierte 1944 in Chicago Williams ersten Bühnenerfolg. Das Stück Die tätowierte Rose (seinem Lebensgefährten Frank Merlo gewidmet) erhielt den Tony Award als bestes Schauspiel. Es wurde 1950 ebenfalls in Chicago uraufgeführt. Kritiker definieren den Stil seiner Schauspiele als Southern Gothic (Südstaatengotik). 1948 und 1955 wurde Williams für seine Stücke Endstation Sehnsucht (A Streetcar Named Desire) und Die Katze auf dem heißen Blechdach (Cat On a Hot Tin Roof) mit dem Pulitzerpreis.

        "Foreign Letters - The Terminus Stores" - Kowloon

      Tsingtao [Qingdao], Hong Kong, Amoy [Xiamen], Wusung [Shanghai], Chefoo [Yantai], Yokohama, Hakodate, Port Arthur, 1911-1912. Journal of manuscript retained copies of letters and diary notes made by German naval engineer H.L.A. Heine while serving onboard Scharnhorst, during and after the Chinese Revolution, with a few hand sketched diagrams within the text. Together with two pencil drawings of nautical scenes inscribed by the artists and measuring approximately 14,5 x 10 cm, and one black and white photograph of a group of German Navy officers perhaps including Heine himself, the photograph measuring approximately 11 x 8 cm. Qto. Approximately 390 pages in manuscript, written in ink single sided onto thin tissue leafs, a scant few integral blanks. Text is almost entirely in German. Volume measures approximately 22,5 x 27 cm, blue cloth boards titled in English and Chinese to front "Foreign Letters: The Terminus Stores. Kowloon." SMS Scharnhorst was an armored cruiser of the Imperial German Navy, the lead ship of her class, assigned to the German East Asia Squadron based in Tsingtao in 1909. After arriving, she replaced the cruiser Fürst Bismarck as the squadron flagship, a position she would hold for the rest of her career. Over the next five years, she went on several tours of various Asian ports to show the flag for Germany. She frequently carried the squadron commanders to meet with Asian heads of state and was present in Japan for the coronation of the Taisho Emperor 30 July 1912. Attached to the China Station of the German Navy and spending some two years at this post, Hans Ludwig Adolf Heine, 'marine ingenieur, SMS Scharnhorst,' wrote several letters, to family and friends, and also to notable business firms. All of the correspondences are dated, with location also given. Several of the letters were written at Tsingtao, being the ship's base port in China. To demonstrate German presence in the Far East, also to augment political and trade relations, frequent tours were made along the coast of China to the Japanese islands. Surely, he would have observed some fascinating communities and situations. For example, he was in Port Arthur [now called Lüshunkou District] on 5 September 1911 only six years after the siege which took place during the Russo-Japanese War. Yokohama was also a port of call later the same month. In December 1911 he is in Hakodate, Japan. He was also in Japan after the death of Emperor Meiji the Great, when his successor Emperor Taisho was given the throne. At least one voyage in 1912 was made as far as Vladivostok in Russia, during which an eight-page letter was penned and contains references to the Russian city, as well as Peking, and torpedo boats in Tientsin [Tianjin]. From January to May 1912 he wrote from Wusung or while anchored off the Wusung Küste [coast]. At the time, Wusung was a separate small port town; it has since become a sub-district of Baoshan in northern Shanghai. Details of Chinese custom, geography and climate, events of the time, as well as his observations of the people's way of life, fill the pages addressed to his personal acquaintances. Towards the end of the volume, he describes the great Tian Shan mountain range, presented with a simple drawing. In a couple of instances he seems to be recording expenses for ship repairs, including the keel. Some letters contain numeric figures or prices. One lists places such as Sumatra, Celebes, Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Japan, which may be the locations where he was trading. A letter to the firm Wolf & Co. of Hamburg was penned at Amoy. At Tsingtao 2.5.1911, he transcribes eight letters which he wrote to various German businessmen and manufacturing firms, including Speidel et Cie. and others in Saigon, Singapore, and Shanghai. [F. W. Speidel was a famous German in Ho Chi Minh City during the early 1900s. His company, Speidel et Cie, was one of the biggest German businesses in the city, trading oil lamps, oil, and providing services ranging from rice milling, to imports, exports, shipping and marine insurance. Founded by German investor Theodore Speidel in 1868, it was one of the first foreign companies opened in Vietnam.] Evidently, Heine was bilingual. At least two letters are in English, one written at Chefoo 2 December 1911, as follows, "Dear Annie, Your card reached me at Tsingtao... A year ago you wrote to me that John was in New Zealand... I have been out here now a year, one more year and I shall go home." Heine returned Germany, by way of Siberia in 1912. He settled in Bremen, continuing work in his specialized field as an engineer, but also became an importer/exporter of goods, quite possibly having made some excellent business connections whilst abroad.

        Atlas zur Klinik der Killianschen Tracheo-Bronchoskopie. Farbige Tafeln nach pathologisch-anatomischen Präparaten von Fällen, die im Leben mit Hilfe der Tracheo-Bronchoskopie untersucht waren.

      Würzburg, Curt Kabitsch, 1911, Folio, 3 Bl., 20 Bl. Tafelerklärungen, 1 Bl., 20 farbchromolith. Tafeln und 20 bedruckte transparente Deckblätter, feiner Halbledereinband zarter Stempel auf Titel. Erste und einzige Ausgabe dieses sehr seltenen und kostbaren Atlas mit sorgfältig gezeichneten Abbildungen in natürlicher Größe!Text in deutscher, französischer und englischer Sprache. "Erneuerung erhielt die Laryngologie durch Killian's Methode der Bronchoskopie, die ihm Weltruf verschaffte."VORWORT: "Seit vielen Jahren habe ich mich bemüht, die Tracheo-Bronchoskopie in klinischen Fällen zu verwerten und sie zur Begründung und Vertiefung der Diagnose insbesondere bei raumbeengenden Tumoren des Brustraumes heranzuziehen. Der Erfinder Killian selbst hatte das Beispiel hierfür gegeben und H. von Schroetter (Klinik der Bronchoskopie 1906) hat sich auch um diesen Zweig der Endoskopie die grössten Verdienste erworben. Bei diesem Bestreben bin ich in gleicher Weise vom Chirurgen und den Internisten unseres Friedrichstädter Krankenhauses unterstützt worden. Ihnen spreche ich auch an dieser Stelle meinen Dank aus. Auch Kollegen aus der Stadt haben mir gelegentlich Fälle zugewiesen. Will man über den Wert oder Unwert einer klinischen Untersuchungsmethode eine Entscheidung herbeiführen und dabei gleichzeitig an das eigene Können einen scharfen kritischen Maßstab legen, so kann man dies nur mit Hilfe der alten Lehrmeisterin aller medizinischen Disziplinen, der pathologischen Anatomie. Darum habe ich bei allen Fällen, die ich in vivo untersucht habe, und die letal endeten, die Sektion durchzusetzen versucht. Bei den Krankenhausinsassen war dies ein leichtes, da ich mich hier insbesondere der tatkräftigen Hilfe Geh.-Rat Schmorls zu erfreuen hatte. In der freien Praxis war es oft recht schwer, zuweilen auch trotz jahrelanger Beobachtung nicht möglich. Die gewonnenen Präparate habe ich durch Herrn Kunstmaler Boerner in möglichster Naturtreue malen lassen. Auf diese Weise bin ich allmählich zu einer stattlichen Anzahl von Bildern gelangt. Einen Teil derselben habe ich im Verein deutscher Laryngologen zu Heidelberg 1909, eine weitere Anzahl bei der Dresdener Tagung im vorigen Jahre demonstriert. Sie fanden den Beifall der Fachgenossen. Killian insbesondere sprach den Wunsch aus, sie möchten als Atlas publiziert werden. Nachdem ich in Herrn Curt Kabitzsch in Würzburg einen Verleger gefunden habe, der für eine in jeder Beziehung künstlerische Wiedergabe der Originale kein Opfer gescheut hat, übergebe ich die Bilder, erläutert durch kurze Krankengeschichten, hiermit der Öffentlichkeit. Den tracheoskopischen Befund bei den einzelnen Fällen habe ich immer nur in Worten gegeben, auf eine bildliche Darstellung absichtlich verzichtet, weil solchen Bildern eine zu starke subjektive Auffassung anhaften muss. Dass ich auch öfters zu Fehldiagnosen gelangt bin, wird jeder aus den Krankengeschichten ersehen. Ich hätte hie und da den Wunsch gehabt, sorgfältig auseinanderzusetzen, welche Momente mich auf die falsche Bahn geführt haben.Das würde aber den gegebenen Raum überschritten haben. Ich hoffe zuversichtlich, dass wir durch Weiterarbeiten auf dem hier beschrittenem Wege, durch Sammeln pathologisch-anatomischer Befunde von solchen Fällen, die wir im Leben genau endoskopiert haben, zu einer immer grösseren Sicherheit in der Diagnosestellung gelangen werden. Die folgenden Tafeln sollen die engeren Fachgenossen unterstützen bei der Deutung eigener Befunde. Die Internisten aber möchten sie davon überzeugen, dass sie sich selbst im Lichte stehen, wenn sie, im Bewusstsein des hohen Wertes ihrer alten Untersuchungsmethoden, der neuen länger die Tür verschliessen. Die Tracheo-Bronchoskopie macht keine derselben unentbehrlich, auch nicht ihre nur wenig ältere Schwester die Röntgenuntersuchung. Wo sie aber neben ihr anwendbar ist, dann unterscheiden sich ihre Ergebnisse wie der lebende Mensch sich unterscheidet - von seinem Schatten." Dresden, im Juni 1911, M. Mann. Max GEorg Mann (1861-1936) " Dirig. Arzt der Abteilung für Ohren-, Nasen- und Halskranke am Stadtkrankenhaus Dresden-Friedrichstadt" wissenschaftlicher und klinischer Schwerpunt war die Tracheo-Bronchoskopie.

        Selected Plays. Illustrated by Herbert Tauss.

This limited edition of Selected Plays by Tennessee Williams has been privately printed, and individually signed by the author. Tennessee Williams (* 26. März 1911 in Columbus/USA - + 25. Februar 1983 in New York City eigentlich Thomas Lanier Williams III) war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Den Spitznamen Tennessee erhielt er von Collegefreunden an der University of Missouri, weil er den Akzent, der im Bundesstaat Tennessee gesprochen wird, sprach. Seine Großeltern, bei denen er oft und gern zu Besuch war, lebten immer noch dort, was für seinen Akzent prägend war. Das in Hollywood zunächst abgelehnte Script für Die Glasmenagerie markierte 1944 in Chicago Williams ersten Bühnenerfolg. Das Stück Die tätowierte Rose (seinem Lebensgefährten Frank Merlo gewidmet) erhielt den Tony Award als bestes Schauspiel. Es wurde 1950 ebenfalls in Chicago uraufgeführt. Kritiker definieren den Stil seiner Schauspiele als Southern Gothic (Südstaatengotik). 1948 und 1955 wurde Williams für seine Stücke Endstation Sehnsucht (A Streetcar Named Desire) und Die Katze auf dem heißen Blechdach (Cat On a Hot Tin Roof) mit dem Pulitzerpreis.
