        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.

        Renoir signed image of a seascape painting, certified by the Mayor of Cagnes-Sur-Mer where Renoir lived for the last 12 years of his life - from the archive of Renoir's art dealer and friend, Ambroise Vollard

      Segovia, January 10, 1911. 7.25" x 10". "Photographic Image Signed ""Renoir"" on the photographic surface, black & white, 6.75"" x 5.75"", overall size, 7.25"" x 10"". Mounted on 9"" x 11.5"" art board. Fine condition.The photograph was originally part of the archive of art collector and dealer, Ambrose Vollard (1868-1939). The number ""983"" is in pencil at the upper edge of the mount, probably to identify the location of his origibal painting. In order to avoid any future disputes regarding the authenticity of works by artists Vollard represented, he had all the original paintings photographed, then asked the artist to sign each photo, and had the signature witnessed. The purple stamping beneath Renoir'`s signature is in French with the artist's name and date witnessed in manuscript: ""Seen in order to authenticate / the signature of / Pierre Auguste Renoir, artist painter / above affixed / Cagnes the 10 January 1911."" Signed by the Mayor of Cagnes-Sur-Mer to the right of his official circular stamping in French: ""Cagnes / Alpes Maritimes"" with ""Mayor"" inside of a laurel."

        British Colonial India at the Time of the Delhi Durbar of 1911. [our title]

      n.p. 1911 - 196 photos plus 16 trimmed photo postcards. Photos inserted four to a page in the windows (10 x 7cm.) on both sides of the 24 moderately-thick leaves in two albums (each album having 12 leaves). Rather appealing amateur photos of decent quality. Captions in white ink on album leaves for about 25 photos. Oblong albums (one in green cloth and one in brown). 29 x 23cm. Photo postcards trimmed to fit in similar-sized photo windows but here merely laid in. Album compiled by an unidentified Englishman who attended the 1911 Delhi Durbar which was attended by King George V and Queen Mary. There are about 20 photos of the event but no direct photos of the King or Queen. There are photos of Hotel Metropole in Nainital and perhaps other hill stations. A few photos show English pastimes (lawn bowling, cricket, a golf course). Nine photos show hunters or big game trophies (tiger, leopard and horned antelope/deer). Other photos show dogs, presumably belonging to the compiler. While there are no Indian photos of the compiler's family, 20 of the photos in the second album are of a British family somewhere in Britain, possibly on holiday. Those photos are followed by twelve seaside/nautical pictures which seem more likely to be British than Indian. The trimmed photo postcards also have a European rather than Indian setting and are photos of the same family that shows up in the other non-Indian photos. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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

      Paris: Mabileau & Co, 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.

        Frederick Hill Meserve private printing of "The Photographs of Abraham Lincoln"

      n.p., n.d.. 9.25" x 11". "Privately printed book of Meserve's work, ""The Photographs of Abraham Lincoln"", published in New York, 1911, by Frederick Hill Meserve. Printed on deckle-edge stationary stock, #21 of a limited edition print of 102 subscribers copies printed. Oversized book of 9.25"" x 11"" with 111 total pages, bound in stunning marbled paper boards with gilt titles to the spine. The book is housed in a custom clam shell tray case in brown tweed cloth with a black quarter cloth spine. Neatly secures with a ribbon.An incredibly fresh example of this scarce limited edition, with bright crisp pages which do not appear to have been read. All tissue guards present and bright without stains or foxing. The boards are in beautiful condition with slight wear along the spine with a bit of rubbing and trivial paper loss along the spine tips. The tray case is in near fine condition with no rubbing but very slight to spine and a paper shear to the inner lining of the tray case. The stunning book includes a facsimile letter from Mr. Robert T. Lincoln concerning the portrait of his father (used in the frontispiece), and a voluminous number of tipped-in silver print photographs struck from the original negatives in the Meserve Collection. The photographs are arranged by topic and are individually numbered as follows: The Photographs of Abraham Lincoln (100), Lincoln at Gettysburg (3), Mrs. Lincoln and the Sons (4), Photographs of the Vice-Presidents, the Speakers, Members of the Cabinet and others (12), and The Interment of Lincoln (1).Original photographs of Lincoln are very scarce with all but 2 or 3 made only in the last 8 years of his life. Very few of the original negative still exist with numerous destroyed in the Chicago and Boston fires. A fantastic collection of photographs that span the whole of Lincoln's career.About the Meserve-Kunhardt Foundation:The Meserve-Kunhardt Foundation is a New York State 501 (c) (3) corporation dedicated to the preservation of photography and the use of it to inform, educate and inspire.

        Romance, op. 4 - Autograph Musical Quotation

      - A scarce AMQS from the important violinist and influential pedagogue, teacher of Elman, Heifetz, Milstein, Zimbalist, Parlow, Schumsky and many others. Auer has penned the first three measures of his Romance in F major for violin and piano (op. 4), which was recorded a few years later by the young Heifetz in 1911. Signed and inscribed to the British violinist and composer "Miss Eva Spalding" (1882 - 1969), and dated London, July 8, 1908. On a small calendar leaf dated May 29. Top edge folded under; tape remnant at the left edge and on the verso, otherwise in very good condition. 5 x 2.5 inches (12.9 x 6.1 cm).Together with a reproduction of a portrait photograph signed and inscribed to Carl Flesch and dated 1911. Thumbtack hole and light wear; overall fine. 4.75 x 7 inches (12.4 x 17.6 cm).Leopold Auer spent nearly fifty years in St. Petersburg and exerted a decisive influence on the Russian violin school, following Vieuxtemps and Wieniawski as solo violin at the Imperial Ballet. Arensky, Glazunov, Taneyev and Tchaikovsky wrote their most important violin compositions for him. As for Tschaikovsky's violin concerto, Auer refused the dedication, declaring it technically awkward and too long! After a few revisions to the violin part, he eventually played this monumental violin work in 1893, shortly before the composer's death.
