        Circuit Europeen / 1r Beaumont 2e Garros sur monoplan Bleriot, Moteur Gnome Magneto Bosch, Helice Normale

      Mabileau & Co, Paris 1911 - Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some overall light toning. Several skilfully reapired tears at edges. The picture is touting Beaumont as the winner of the 1911 Circuit of Europe Air Race. André Beaumont was a pseudonym used by Jean Conneau. Conneau collected $ 32,000 for his victory. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Carteggio d'amore inviato da Zuccoli ad Amalia Guglielminetti tra l'11 settembre 1911 e il 14 novembre 1911 Lotto di 26 lettere, un telegramma ed una piccola foto.

      1911. Assieme di 26 lettere, in formato in-8 su carta intestata ''Il Giornale di Venezia'', 3 dal ''Grand Hotel Rome'', 1 ''Caffè Nazionale, Peroni Aragno. Roma''; buste conservate che recano al verso indirizzo ''Amalia Guglieminetti. Corso Francia 1bis. Torino''. Appassionante ed inedito carteggio che permette di ripercorrere l'apparentemente ignota storia d'amore tra uno dei romanzieri più in voga all'inizio del XX secolo ed Amalia Guglielminetti. Dalle missive, tutte dello Zuccoli, si evince che i due si erano incontrati nel mese di giugno e a partire da settembre iniziano un quasi quotidiano scambio epistolare. Le prime missive, in cui il letterato e giornalista, chiama la Guglielminetti ''Susanna vestita'' fanno trasparire già il desiderio che l'uomo prova. Diventano sempre più esplicite, fino a vere e proprie crisi di gelosia quando al donna si dice non più casta. Tra le fitte, lunghe ed appassionate pagine si leggono tentativi di incontri e programmi per evitare di farsi riconoscere. Concordano un appuntamento per il 5 novembre a Milano: cinque lunghi giorni di liaison amorosa cui seguono solo più tre affettuose lettere dell'uomo ed un telegramma, non sappiamo se per la fine della relazione o per perdita della documentazione. Tra le righe, molto ben scritte, si ha notizia di alcuni lavori letterari dei due, si fa riferimento a Gozzano, ma la cosa che colpisce di più sono i tempi e i modi di una relazione amorosa tra due personalità di cultura al principio del XX secolo. Luciano Zuccoli, pseudonimo di Luciano von Ingenheim (1868 ? 1929), fu scrittore, giornalista e romanziere svizzero naturalizzato italiano. Nell'autobiografia, pubblicata nel 1924, si definiva come «riottoso e prepotente, bevitore e libertino, beffardo e cinico.» Carattere ben evidenziato in questo carteggio privato. Diresse dal 1903 al 1912 il Giornale e la Gazzetta di Venezia, per trasferirsi poi a Roma. La Biblioteca Civica di Gorizia nel 2000 acquistò un corpus costituito da trenta lettere inviate dallo Zuccoli tra il 1911 e il 1913, che testimonia la conclusione della relazione che ebbe con la Guglielminetti.

        China. No. 1 (1911). Despatches from Sir A. Hosie Forwarding Reports Respecting the Opium Question in China.

      London. His Majesty's Stationery Office. June1911. Despatches from Sir A.Hosie: 23pp. Original wrappers, lower corners and edges, little creased, very good. Quarto. These papers contain reports on the suppression of opium cultivation in the opium producing provinces of China, assembled by Consul-General Sir Alexander Hosie (1853-1925) one of the leading members of the British consular service in China of his time. They cover the provinces of Shansi, Shensi, and Kansu, together with other reports from Szechuan and Yunnan. Based partly on his own journeys and observations, they also contain contributions from long resident British miss-ionaries in the several provinces. A remarkable change was taking place in China at this time. This is explained in the contemporary account given at pp.409-410 of Samuel Couling's Encyclopaedia Sinica (Shanghai, Kelly and Walsh, 1917) which provides the necessary back-ground to Hosie's reports. There had been a gradual spread of opium cultivation within China and Manchuria in the later 19th century, with a shift in both public consumption and taste away from the Indian opium imported largely by British and Indian firms from the 18th century on. At the same time, a strong anti-opium movement had been developing in China during the final decades of the Manchu dynasty, and by 1906 had obliged the Court to issue an edict ordering the abolition of opium smoking within ten years. Also, and in the same year, the British parliament had entered into a ten year agreement with China whereby the export of opium from India was to be reduced by one-tenth annually, in return for a similar reduction in opium production there. An Inter-national Opium Commission sat at Shanghai in 1909 and agreed to assist China in its efforts to stop opium trade and cultivation, and it met again at The Hague in 1911. Both the movement and the change of attitude among officials and people were genuine. Hosie himself considered that "No question has ever stirred the Chinese Empire so profoundly as that of opium suppression", and the detailed reports contained in these papers seem to bear this out. By then, too, Couling added, a stigma was now being universally attached to opium smoking.Unfortunately, the change of government brought about by the Chinese Revolution of 1911-12, and the Warlord Era which followed would disrupt the work: but even so, Britain discontinued the export of Indian opium before the ten year agreement had ended. Couling's Encyclopaedia Sinica was reprinted by Oxford University Press, Hong Kong in 1983. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 142940).

        Autograph letter signed "P Mascagni" to an unidentified impresario in Vienna, addressed "Mio Caro."

      2 pp. Quarto. Dated Rome, October 8, [1]908. On stationery with "Corso Vitt. Eman. 154. Telefono Interprov. 458. Per telegrammi: Mascagni, Roma" printed in red at upper left. In Italian (with translation). Mascagni responds to a proposal to write a "true and authentic" operetta. He likes the idea, but would encounter difficulties "of the moral-artistic order," and especially with his publishers, Choudens and Sonzogno. As indicated by his use of "tu," Mascagni and his correspondent were on familiar terms. "But there is still a material difficulty, represented in my contracts with the publishers Sonzogno in Milan and Choudens in Paris, who will not want to adjust [their contracts] if they knew I worked for an impresario from Vienna before having delivered (as per contract) the operas that I must write for them... As you've seen I haven't spoken of monetary interests... but profits have never been a difficulty for the closing of my [business] deals." Slightly worn; creased at folds. Together with: A postcard photograph of 5 gentlemen on a street corner dated Paris 1911 on mount: Mascagni, the music publisher Edoardo Sonzogno, the writer Gabriele d'Annunzio and two unidentified others. Mascagni, distinguished as both a composer and conductor, is perhaps best-known for his opera Cavalleria rusticana, which "was enormously successful from its first performance at the Costanzi in Rome in 1890. From then on Mascagni spent the rest of his long career treating a wide variety of subjects. His next opera, L'amico Fritz (1891), consolidated his success with Roman audiences, and revealed his lyrical vein. This fluent rustic comedy was successful particularly because melodic vitality - the outstanding merit of Cavalleria - was combined with a more elegant harmonic idiom." By the time this letter was written, Mascagni had also garnered considerable acclaim in Vienna, Paris, and London. Michele Girardi in Grove Music Online.

        Peter and Wendy

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1911. Illustrated by F. D. Bedford. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and pictorial decoration to spine and front board in gilt. Frontispiece with tissue guard, pictorial title page, and 11 plates, all by Bedford. Ownership inscription to front free endpaper.

Peter and Wendy is an expanded adaptation into novel form of the story first made popular in the 1904 stage play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. It tells the familiar story of the stage version, with Peter as an older child flying off with Wendy and the other Darling children to battle Captain Hook and his pirates, but Barrie added a final chapter to the book in which Peter returns for Wendy years later, when she is grown with a child of her own. The stage play itself was not published until 1928. Originally published in the same year in the UK.

        Termination of the Treaty of 1832 Between the United States and Russia: Hearing Before the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives, Monday, December 11, 1911

      Government Printing Office, Washington D.C. 1911 - The United States abrogated the 1832 treaty after it failed to induce Russia to cease denying Jews who were United States citizens the rights gentiles who wee United States citizen enjoyed. It is to be hoped that Congress will show the same backbone now, more than a century later, when dealing with other countries guilty of the same injustice. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Muzsikaszo [The Sound of Music]. Regeny dalban [Romantic Songs]

      Budapest: Petofi-Tarsagag Kiadasa [Petofi Publishing House], n.d. (1911). First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. Large 4to. (370 x 287 mm). 1 f. (Ex Libris), title-page, 43 ff. 22 plates and 22 full-paged illustrations, of which 16 are color and 16 tipped-in, partly on gold and multi-coloured paper, plus 10 multi-coloured vignettes, initials and text illustrations. Original publisher's Art Deco binding designed by Arpad Basch: white leatherette over (wooden?) boards, gilt and multi-colour embossed cover illustration and spine, multi-colour illustrated end papers also designed by Arpad Basch. Binding a little dust-soiled, some pages with minor foxing. Hungarian Art Nouveau Salesman's-Dummy, an extraordinary artifact designed by Árpád Basch (1873-1944) for a publication of traditional Hungarian folk songs. Not surprisingly, the present volume combines Art Nouveau elements with Hungarian nationalist art. No doubt created for potential subscribers, the present volume contains song texts printed with decorative typeface, musical scores with ornamental vignettes and surrounding illustrations. The volume is profusely illustrated with color reproductions of paintings and drawings by notable contemporary Hungarian artists including Gyula Benczúr, István Bosznay, Gyu la Éder, Sándor Endrey, Gyula Háry, Ferencz Innocent, Gyula Istvánffy, Béla Juszkó, Nándor Kátona, Bertalan Karlovszky, L. Kézdi-Kovács, Endre Komáromi-Kacz, Tihamér Margitay, Vilmos Nagy, Antal Neogrády, Sándor Nyilassi, János Pentelei Molnár, Húgo Poll, Imre Revész, Gyula Stetka, Artúr Tölgyessy, Ákos Tolnay, Géza Udvary, Ignácz Uváry, Zsigmond Vajda, Géza Vastagh, and finally the designer of the book, the painter Árpád Basch (1873-1944), a Hungarian Jew who was killed by the Nazis, and whose work as a graphic artist merits more critical attention. Basch designed not only the binding and color-printed endleaves, but the large Ex-libris which precedes the title-page; the designs on fols. 1, 19, 30, 165, 69 (here misbound); the color printed illustration opposite p. 245; and likely the title-page itself plus assorted vignettes. The present volume was elegantly bound by the renown Budapest bookbinder Gottermayer (name blind-stamped on lower cover) and also incorporates some paper patterns for the forthcoming book edition. Anticipating the extended contents of the published work, the entire elaborately rendered spine is attached by means of a hinge on the lower cover (a useful feature as the present volume is in fact a vehicle of sale). Another ingenious design is the hinge on the first blank endleaf. A particularly rare and beautiful Hungarian Salesman's-Dummy, the likes of which we have never seen, providing graphic evidence of the high standard of quality among Budapest's leading book artists at that time.

Borst A1.11.b, A2.12.c, A3.6.b, A4.6.b, and A5.6.b Fine ¶ The direct literary results of Thoreau's stay at Walden Pond were the essay "Resistance to Civil Government" (1849), inspired by a night in the Concord jail (the result of not having paid his taxes as a protest against government policies) and early drafts of A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (1849) and Walden (1854). After A Week failed to sell, Thoreau began revising Walden, taking it through seven major drafts before finally publishing it seven years later to modest sales and mostly favorable reviews. Two more trips to the Maine Woods (1853 and 1857) and several excursions to Cape Cod (1849, 1855, and 1857). provided fodder for the essays collected into two posthumous books, The Maine Woods (1864) and Cape Cod (1865). Clifton Johnson (1865-1940) was a folklorist, illustrator, photographer, and important literary figure with some 125 published books and countless magazine and newspaper articles to his credit. A friend of William Dean Howells and John Burroughs, he was an acquaintance of many other late 19th and early 20th century authors and editors.
