        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. Literature: Adrian Darmon, Autour de l'art Juif: Peintres, sculpteurs et photographes (2003) p. 39.

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.

        The New Inferno - With sixteen Drawings by Vernon Hill.

      John Lane - The Bodley Head,, 1911. Limited Edition. London / New York, John Lane - The Bodley Head, 1911. Quarto. Frontispiece, 145 pages with XVI full page illustrations. Original, illustrated Hardcover. One of only 320 copies printed. Good condition with some stronger signs of external wear. Private inscription on front free endpaper. Vernon Hill (1887?1972), born in Halifax, Yorkshire, England, was a sculptor, lithographer, illustrator and draughtsman. He began his work in print-making and lithography, and branched out into other artistic forms, such as sculpture. He illustrated several works and created etchings. His more notable works were commissions from Sir Edward Maufe for interior and exterior architectural sculptures on Maufe's buildings, including Guildford Cathedral, the Runnymede Memorial and several churches. He died in 1972.nVernon Hill was born in 1887 in Halifax, Yorkshire. He began formal training in print-making at an early age; at the age 13 he was apprenticed to a lithographer. In about 1908, at the age of 21, Hill moved to London and took up poster illustration, working under John Hassall, a poster designer and illustrator. nFrom 1909 to 1914 Hill received commissions for work as an illustrator on various projects. He created Art Nouveau illustrations for Stephen Phillips' The New Inferno in 1911 and for Richard Pearse Chope's Ballads Weird and Wonderful the following year. In 1912 one of his works was exhibited at the Royal Academy. His etchings were described by Campbell Fine Art as follows:nn "The distinctive allegorical etchings of Vernon Hill are all now scarce. His highly evocative work appears to have evolved entirely independently from the trends of his time, although overtones of the mysticism which so influenced Frederick Carter and Austin Osman Spare can be traced in some of his works."nnHis most notable work as a sculptor is to be seen on various buildings by Sir Edward Maufe, who regularly commissioned Hill.nSome of Hill's finest work can be seen at Guildford Cathedral in Guildford, Surrey. Apart from the reliefs on the south door entrance he carved the angels on the sedilia inside the cathedral, as well as the tongues of flame on the pulpit and lectern. He also carved the arms of Bishop Greig over the inside of the sacristy door and the figure of Saint Ursula over the inside of St Ursula?s Porch.nnAt the east door of the south porch (on either side of the central buttress pier in the south transept) are two magnificent bronze doors set under two arches which feature Vernon Hill?s reliefs. These are depictions of various occupations, of both men and women. The men?s occupations are on the right-hand door and include sowing, woodcutting, fishing, hunting, shepherding and ploughing; on the left-hand door are depicted women's traditional occupations including milking, spinning, and teaching.

A superb copy, bright, square and tight. Garrison A 19.I.a. Johnson, High Spots, pp 76-77. Auchincloss, The Edith Wharton Reader, p. 21. Fine ¶By 1910, Teddy Wharton's mental health was fast deteriorating, and his embezzlement of money from Edith's trust fund initiated the end of the Whartons' marriage, as well as Edith's American life. She leased an apartment on the Left Bank, in Paris, where she would remain until 1920. The Mount, her beloved Berkshires retreat, was sold in 1911, and "henceforth her life would be wholly a European one. . . It is somehow fitting that [Edith Frome], her frosty New England tragedy of a damaged New England farmer devastatingly crippled physically and emotionally by a disastrous love-affair, coincided with Wharton's own sundering of bonds to that same landscape and to a now-hopeless marriage which formally ended in 1913." (Literary Encyclopedia) "[I]t is surely among her best. When I think of it [Ethan Frome], I visualize a small painting, perfectly executed to the last detail." (Auchincloss) N. B.

First published in 1910, the Phantom's obsessive and consuming love for the beautiful young chorus girl Christine has captivated readers, film goers and musical theater fanatics for over 100 years. The Phantom of the Opera has become the source for numerous adaptations, including the 1925 film starring Lon Chaney and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning musical.

        A Decade of Years, Poems by William Wordsworth 1798-1807 [from the text of 1857]

      [Hammersmith: The Doves Press], 1911. One of 200 copies printed on paper. Text printed in black and red. 230, [1] pp. 1 vols. Small 4to. Original full vellum, spine titled Wordsworth in gilt, by the Doves Bindery. Calligraphic gift label dated 1919 on front flyleaf, H.W.D.J. d.d. J.F.W. Some natural mottling to vellum, minor exterior soiling. Fine copy in a cloth slipcase. One of 200 copies printed on paper. Text printed in black and red. 230, [1] pp. 1 vols. Small 4to. Choice copy of this selection of Wordsworth's short and long form verse from the defining period of the Romantic movement, and one of the great books of the press. Cobden-Sanderson was "overwhelmed by the scope of the war, for unlike other wars in his memory, it seemed to engulf the whole world in a sort of madness. … He wanted his last books, before finally closing the press, to be books of peace such as Wordsworth and Goethe, and he hoped to make them his best" (Tidcombe). Ransom p. 252 no. 27; Reed A364 (noting spine title as A Decade of Years); Tidcombe p.40

        The Principles of Scientific Management.

      New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1911 - Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine and front board in gilt, publisher's device to front board in blind. Extremities a little rubbed, top corners of boards a little bumped, light ink stain to bottom corner of boards and text block, faint dampstaining to fore edge of front free endpaper and first 8 leaves. A very good copy. First trade edition, preceded only by the privately distributed edition in the same year. "F. W. Taylor, an engineer in the Bethlehem Steel Works in Philadelphia, was the originator of what he called 'scientific management', now known as 'time and motion study'. His system was based on what he estimated to be a fair day's work and the best means of ensuring such a standard of production. He was interested in any factor that hindered or helped in attaining this end, and besides studying factory conditions and methods in great detail he was responsible for fundamental changes in machinery and machine tools. The main lines of approach to increased efficiency were standardising processes and machines, time and motion study, and payment by results, all of which have been welcomed in the USSR, where 'Stakhanovism' is virtually 'Taylorism' renamed, and in Germany, where the Principles was translated and achieved a wide circulation (31,000 copies sold by 1922). The adoption of his methods there contributed notably to the speedy recovery of German production after the First World War. His methods were anathema to trade unionists almost everywhere else" (PMM). Downs, Books That Changed America, 17; Norman 2059; Printing and the Mind of Man 403. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Thousand Secrets

      London: Everett & Co., Ltd., 1911. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo. [6], 312 pp. On p. 3 an image of an EMOJI ingeniously composed on a typewriter. Original publisher's red cloth, on upper cover a color-printed illustration of a skull, a typewriter, and a creepy hand typing the same EMOJI. Binding recased new pastedowns and endpapers, some soiling on lower cover. Published more than a century ago, this serial-killer thriller must surely be the first EMOJI mystery: at each crime scene the murderer leaves a cryptic typewritten "Smiley Face." Questions remain: did the murderer bring his or her own typewriter to the scene of the crimes? Were potential murder victims excluded because they did not own a typewriter? The first chapter is entitled: "Taxi of Death." What's not to like? THE SETTING: London and Paris. THE PROTAGONIST: Dick Dauntsey of Her Majesty's Secret Service. THE PLOT: Detective Dauntsey must investigate a series of alarming typewritten notes, always accompanied by a typewritten EMOJI of a grinning face. In a first-person narrative (antedating Dashiell Hammett), Dauntsey relates a compelling story which immediately begins with the discovery of the corpse of Harold, 7th Baron Lilifford in in a taxi cab. We are drawn to the taxi by the screams of a young woman, Gerta Kramm (naturally she is strikingly beautiful), the daughter of an old recluse. Throughout the case Daunsey is guided and misguided by the grinning EMOJI notes, and it is through them that he meets "The Lady in Black." Of course he falls in love with Gerta, which naturally complicates everything; but in this regard the present mystery exceeds our expectations, namely that their alliance is so dangerous that it almost lead the British nation into war. As expected, Dauntsey's own death at the hands of a league of conspirators is narrowly averted. Can Dauntsey solve the mystery of the Thousand Secrets? Selborne's other novels " The House of the Siren" and "The Lady in Black " seem equally scarce, but "The Thousand Secrets" is very difficult to obtain in attractive state, as here. COMMENT: On the verso of the title-page is the publisher's statement that the book was copyrighted in America by Mitchell Kennerley in 1911. This information is correct, but it is noteworthy that the book was not published in this country until 1915; therefore this London edition is the first.

        Paul Klee - Catalogue raisonné Alle 9 Bänder zum Sondersparpreis

      NEUBUCH!!! Paul-Klee-Stiftung und Kunstmuseum Bern (Hrsg.) Paul Klee - Catalogue raisonné Verzeichnis des gesamten Werkes in neun Bänden Die umfangreichste und wichtigste Publikation, die bisher auf der Grundlage des Archivs erstellt wurde, ist das Werkverzeichnis Paul Klees, der Catalogue raisonné Paul Klee. Mit dieser Publikation wird erstmals das Schaffen Paul Klees vollständig und systematisch zusammengestellt und veröffentlicht. Der Catalogue raisonné Paul Klee ist das Resultat einer 15 Jahre dauernden - auf der Grundlage von Vorbereitungsarbeiten der 1970er und 1980er Jahre basierenden - wissenschaftlich fundierten Aufarbeitung des gegen 10'000 Zeichnungen, Druckgrafiken, Aquarelle und Gemälde umfassenden Gesamtwerks von Paul Klee. Klees eigenem, handschriftlichen OEuvre-Katalog folgend, in welchem der Künstler von 1911 bis zu seinem Tod im Jahre 1940 mit nie nachlassender Akribie sein Schaffen festhielt, verzeichnet der Catalogue raisonné Paul Klee sämtliche Werke des Künstlers in chronologischer Reihenfolge. Diese Systematik trennt das OEuvre nicht künstlich nach Gattungen, sondern ermöglicht grundlegende Einsichten in die Dynamik von Paul Klees Werkprozess. Im Herbst 2004 wurde mit der Herausgabe des letzten Bandes das Projekt des Catalogue raisonné Paul Klee abgeschlossen. Band 9 umfasst nebst den Werken von 1940 und einer aktualisierten Bibliografie auch eine Addenda und Corrigenda und wurde mit Gesamtregistern zu den Werktiteln, Provenienzen und Standorten vervollständigt. Den Inhalt der einzelnen Bände können Sie bei den jeweiligen Einzelangeboten nachlesen.
