        Unai no tomo (A Child's Friends, Japanese folk toys)

      OFFERING: Volumes II-IV from the ten volumes set. The 133 color woodblock prints in the three volumes were made from designs by Shimizu, after works in his collection. Book production was painstaking and of high quality. Some prints have additional hand applied color or silver or gold leaf. Volumes II and IV with numbered sheets and four and five stamped seals respectively are from the rare first printing. Volume III is an early printing. Many volumes were issued independently at intervals over 32 years between 1891 and 1923, the last four posthumously. IMPORTANCE: Widely considered the most important, early illustrated Japanese book on omocha (toys), the work is also of ethnographic and cultural significance. Omocha were traditionally handmade from common materials and usually sold at festivals on ennichi (link-days). Many were derived from amulets and talismans rooted in religious and magical beliefs associated with Shinto and traditional Japanese folklore. Shimizu was a student of Hiroshige III and had long contemplated preparation of the work. A connoisseur, his intimacy with his collection resulted in a series of exquisite designs, in which color, form and function all become one. There aren't just a few highlights, there are many, and their ability to create references to Japanese history, culture, religion and family life is endlessly surprising. A source of inspiration for the Mingei movement, the work inspired artists such as Munakata Shiko and is a reference for historians, anthropologists, ethnographers and collectors. Pate calls it, "the classic work" and Kyburz, "the bible for all serious toy amateurs". RARITY: A worldwide institution search finds complete first printing sets only in Japan, at the National Diet Library and the Kyoto Public Library. The second edition was published by Geisodo in 1924 and a third edition with English notes (1965). PAGINATION: Complete for the 3 volumes, numbered leaves in Vols. II and IV; 170 pages + 23 interleaf guards with 133 woodblock prints with captions showing at least 243 toys or sets. Twelve prints are double-page with format of two facing pages. These prints are usually protected by a tissue interleaf. Vol. II: 59 pages with 26 numbered leaves, stamped with 4 seals. Vol. III: 56 pages, stamped with 1 seal. Vol. IV: 55 pages with 25 numbered leaves, stamped with 5 seals. FORMAT: Publisher's camel wrappers with powdered mica, decorated with eighteen blind printed toy designs, nine to a side, sewn with 4-stab holes in the fukuro-toji style, publisher's beige title slips mounted on the upper side, the mikaeshi (inside of each wrapper) with one of two variants of an original Shimizu print design in pale turquoise and white, showing in stylized fashion a flying crane (air), stand of trees (earth), and sea turtle (ocean). SIZE: 173 x 250 mm. CONDITION DETAIL: Prints: sharp impressions with fresh colors, 8-9 pages per volume with toning or scattered spotting, some with light tip bends, two pages in volume iii with a gentle corner crease. / Mikaeshi: excellent, except one with fore-edge chip in volume iv. / Interleaf Guards: light wear, one with bottom edge wear. / Owner Markings: upper wrapper side in each volume with Japanese ex-libris stamp. / Covers: Sides retain original powdered mica; toy designs are sharp with some rubs and soiling; lower sides with bottom corner wear and spine edge wear; upper wrapper side of vol. ii with a 7 x 15 mm section neatly sliced from foot of spine, no designs missing. / Title Slips: soiled, and rubbed for vol. ii. / Bindings: Excellent, corner caps with minor wear. SHIMIZU SEIFU [1851-1913]: The leading Meiji period collector of omocha including ningyo (dolls). Artist, calligrapher and head of a wealthy Tokyo trading company, Shimizu studied poetry with Kozando Sangetsu, and painting with Hiroshige III, holding in trust important Ando Hiroshige artifacts including his seals. In 1880 he founded the Takeuma-kai (Hobbyhorse Club) for advancing the enjoyment and study of the many forms of traditional Japanese folk toys and in 1906 he curated the first known exhibition of Japanese folk toys in Japan, the Kodomo Hakurankai (Children's Exhibition). In 1909, he founded the influential Odomokai (Connoisseur's Club) that greatly advanced their appreciation. PUBLISHING DATES: Vol. I (1891). Vols. II-V (1911). Vol. VI (1913) is the last volume supervised by Shimizu, for he died in 1913. Volumes VII-X were published posthumously with transfer designs by the artist, Nishizawa Tekiho, Vol. VII (1917), Vol. VIII (1921), Vols. IX and X (1923). REFERENCE: Culin, Japanese Toys and their lore. Kyburz, Omocha. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

        THE BRACKNELS: A FAMILY CHRONICLE ..

      London: Edward Arnold, 1911.. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1] 2-304 [1]-8: ads, original gray cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. The author's third novel, rewritten as DENIS BRACKNEL. A study of the unpleasant family of a Belfast merchant whose youngest child is Denis; "morbid, dreamy, the victim of delusions, engaging in strange pagan worship, yet with amiable traits" (Brown). "THE BRACKNELS (1911) is the work which Mr. Reid regards as the foundation stone of his literary career. It is a remarkable study of an abnormal boy, a moon-worshipper, who is obsessed and haunted by the malignant influences of an old house, his home, reputed in earlier times to have been the scene of a murder. Just as in the case of the boy in Henry James's finest supernatural story, "The Turn of the Screw," Denis Bracknel is killed by the forces of evil that have reached him from another plane. Individual opinion may object to the manner in which the final tragedy occurs; but the whole story is bathed in that sense of terror and impending doom which Sheridan Le Fanu could so portentously convey, and compels admiration" (The Bookman, May 1920). Brown, Ireland in Fiction, p. 260. Kemp, Mitchell and Trotter, Edwardian Fiction, p. 42. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Early owner's signature on the front free endpaper. Spine lean, light wear to spine ends, corner tips and along outer joints, cloth soiled, endpapers lightly tanned, a very good copy. A fairly nice copy of a scarce book that is seldom found in decent condition. (#156258)

Jack spent his freshman year at Springfield College in Massachusetts playing baseball and football, and in 1912 he was involved with the Intercollegiate Championships held at Harvard Stadium. There are action shots of runners and pole vaulting as well as the crowd in the stands. By 1915 he had enrolled at Fordham University and throughout are photos of football games, boxing matches, and baseball games, as well as Jack and his friends goofing off during their leisure time.After graduating from Fordham in 1917, Jack joined the American Expeditionary Forces and traveled to France to fight in World War I and was stationed in Verdun.

These photos show the French countryside and people as well as military personal such as soldiers and American Red Cross nurses. Photos include a French plane, a group of soldiers on post, American grave sites in France, the ruins of Verdun, and men on a hill with their stomachs to the ground awaiting the enemy.

One photo shows Jack surrounded by women of the camp which reads "talk about your harem" and another of a group of women reads "three good scouts."Jack married Margaret Ellen Riordan in Worcester, Massachusetts, their wedding taking place in January of 1925 and an invitation is laid in. The final pages detail vacations and family visits through the rest of that year, including trips to Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire in the sun and water, fishing, hiking, and having a good time goofing off. Jack would go on to coach at Classical High School in Massachusetts with a newspaper clipping tipped in from 1952 that discusses his retirement from the school where he coached for 32 years.An extensive scrapbook of a young man's formative years featuring college sports and serving his country in World War I before becoming a beloved high school coach. .

        The Faras-Nama-e Rangin or The Book of the Horse. Translated from the Urdu by D. C. Phillott.

      Bernard Quaritch, London 1911 - Large 8vo. xix, [1], 83pp., [1], 3 plates, original green stamped decorated cloth with title gilt on spine, appendix, light foxing to endpapers, otherwise copy in very good condition. Rangin (1756-1835) was the son of a Persian nobleman who served in various armies on the sub-continent before turning to the trade in horses; this work, his study of the horse in the Muslim area of Hindustan in north-western India, was written sometime before 1835 when the author died. Composed in Urdu verse, Rangin presents himself as an experienced horse merchant, emphasizing his authoritative knowledge based on actual experience in various horse-breeding regions of India. Rangin’s treatise reflects three main issues of the late 18th and early 19th century. First, there was a plethora of would-be consumers, each with their own particular set of preferences but with an overarching ideal of an acceptable horse. He makes repeated references to the preferences of Sikhs, British, Marathas, Rajputs, Afghans, and a host of others. Second, the treatise reflects a new emphasis on light cavalry in this politically and militarily charged environment. Famous breeding grounds and pasturage that previously dotted the northwest, especially near the Lakhi and other jungles, had been the most popular sources for horses among the Mughal nobility in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. The prejudice against horses bred in the southern regions and their smaller staturemade the Deccani breeds less popular. For much of the Mughal period, these areas were associated with the seasonal trade patterns of overland trade and the nomadic trading groups who facilitated trade. The emergence of new regional states disrupted existing routes, and brought into prominence markets, such as those in the Deccan, that had earlier not received much attention from the Mughal farasnama writers. Rangin’s focus on the peninsula and the Deccani breeds it produced marks a definite change in preference and availability of horses and the trade routes they traveled along before sale. The veterinary section focuses on maintaining and manipulating available stocks of horses, rather than promoting experimentation based on outside traditions. Third, the Faras-nama is in Urdu verse, not Persian prose, andthis versified versionis based on Rangin’s own longer but now lost prose treatise. Rangin’s given name was Sa’adat Yar Khan. He grew up with his father, the Mughal courtier, soldier, and memoirist Tahmasap Beg Khan Turani (1738 – ca.1785).Rangin’s formative years were spent helping his father, both as a horse merchant and as a mansabdar to the Afghan Rohillas. The main body of the treatise contains 21 chapters that fall into three divisions. The first five chapters cover descriptions of horses, feathers (whorls), defects according to Islamic tradition, and spavins. These are subjects that are expected in the introductory chapters of a horse treatise.Chapters six through teninclude the names and simple descriptions of eyesores and defects (Chapter 6), colours and markings (Chapter 7), listing five common defects (Chapter 8), listingthe best breeding districts (Chapter 9) and advices on how to determine the age of a horse by its teeth (Chapter 10). Rangin’s presentation of pragmatic information based on lived experience, dispenses with the theoretical knowledge of the classic farasnama genre.This orientation continues in his chapters on veterinary medicine where he addresses serious illnesses with instructions for effacing the markings and whorls that played central role in the classical farasnamas. The third section of Rangin’s treatise is on veterinary medicine with recommended cures for fairly common diseases and illnesses (Chapters 10 through 16) followed by treatments for wounds and other miscellaneous issues related to horses (Chapters 17 through 21).

        SASHIE

      1911 - TAKAHAMA Kyoshi, editor. SASHIE. Tokyo, Kokado, Meiji 44 [1911]. This is a "saihan" printed a few days after the first impression. Bound Western style in illustrated boards, 8vo., 421+pp. This wonderful book takes its title [ILLUSTRATION] very seriously. It has crammed from beginning to end with illustrations, both color and b+w, printed with machine-based techniques but with a freshness and appealing naivete that the HOTOTOGISU artists were famous for. The full complement of the most important members of the literary and artistic group that first gathered around Masaoka Shiki. After Shiki's premature death the brilliant poet Takahama Kyoshi and academic and author Natsume Soseki became the leaders of the group. Such wonderful and established artists as Asai Chu and Nakamura Fusetsu, along with younger artists, Hashiguchi Goyo, Tsuda Seifu, etc., were also allied by sympathy and friendship with the group. Here they have put together a wonderful compilation of their "style" in illustration. The integration of text and image is, of course, traditional and was an essential part of the HOTOTOGISU ethos. There also was an acknowledgement of an adaptation of the traditionalthe bunjin ideal of the educated polymath, who could participate in a cultural continuity by his skill with the brush: be it in painting or calligraphy or poetry or literature. But there was no fustiness involved. Soseki was a brilliant student of English literature, a poet in classical Chinese, a traditional watercolourist, a noted calligrapher. Iwanami Shigeo, a member of the group, was also the founder of the most important scholarly publishing house in Japan, then and now. Asai Chu was one of the most important Western-style oil painters in Japan in the late 19th century who was also a brilliant designer. The list goes on and on. To page through this book is to discover a circle of friends able to adroitly balance the past and the present to face the future. In a very practical way, these intellectuals were as important to the development of a strong and independent Japan in the 20th century as any general or politician, perhaps more important. This is by no means a common book. There is a bit of foxing throughout and the illustrated slipcase is a bit soiled and worn, but it is still a wonderful artifact of its time.

        Studier over metallernes Elektrontheori (Study on the Electron Theory of Metals).

      Thaning & Appel, København 1911 - Half-title + TP + [i] = Dedication page + [ii] = Contents page + [1]-120, Octavo. First Edition.Includes a tipped-in note on the back of the front cover (announcing when Bohr defended his thesis?) and another laid-in printed note of indeterminate content dated 1878. First edition of Bohr's doctoral dissertation. This is a purely theoretical work that clearly exhibited the mastery Bohr had over his chosen topic, the electron theory of metals. From Copenhagen, Bohr went to Manchester, spending two years there before returning to the University of Copenhagen as professor of theoretical physics. Bohr's doctoral dissertation was the first step to his epoch-making quantum theory of atomic spectra of 1913. "The investigation of the structure of atoms, and of the radiation emanating from them were recognized as leading to Bohr's Nobel Prize. His theories . . . laid the foundation for much of the understanding of the physical and chemical properties of the elements." Bohr won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1922 for his development of the classical quantum theory of atomic structure (based on the prior work by Rutherford and Planck). Original printed wraps. A lovely, well-preserved copy. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Emir of Bokhara and his Country. Journeys and Studies in Bokhara (With a Chapter on my Voyage on the Amu Darya to Khiva.)

      Copenhagen: Gyldendalske Boghandel, Nordisk Forlag; London, William Heinemann, 1911 - Large octavo. Original plum cloth, title gilt to front board and spine. A little rubbed, the spine lettering a touch oxidised, judicious restoration at the head of the spine, light foxing to the prefatory matter and fore edge, else very good. Large folding coloured map in band inside rear board, numerous half-tone illustrations from the author's own photographs to the text, many full-page. First edition, inscribed by the author on the title page, of this highly detailed and well-illustrated study of the region by the Secretary of the Royal Danish Geographical Society, drawing on the material accumulated during his command of the first and Second Danish Pamir Expeditions, 1896–97, 1898–99, from which he brought back more than 700 artefacts of ethnographic and scientific significance now at the Danish National Museum in Copenhagen. Olufsen was fluent in Russian and Usbegic, so he was able to conduct his own interviews with natives, employing only a Tajik interpreter with whom he conversed in Ottoman Turkish. In Bokhara the travellers "were welcomed as guests" by the Emir, lengthening their stay, with the result that the present study "can be used as a work of reference on the details of the region's architecture, archaeology, customs, religions, traditional costume, and for its profuse illustration from photographs of ethnographic and handcrafted pieces, monuments and local peoples" (Gorshenina, Explorateurs en Asie Centrale. Voyageurs et aventuriers de Marco Polo à Ella Maillart, pp. 225). The book is a relatively fragile production, with the thin cloth, heavy text-block, and large folding map all contributing to the frail condition of copies usually encountered; this, lightly and skilfully restored, is a very superior copy, and very uncommon indeed inscribed.
