        Congratulatory address by the assistants' committee of Viennese joiners for Laurenz Widholz. Vienna, 8. I. 1911.

      1911. Oblong folio (ca 470 x 344 x 75 mm). 14 heavy double leaves of cardboard, edges gilt, gilt-edged mats with 27 original photographs (albumen prints, mostly ca 185 x 280 mm). Contemporary buff-coloured calf with metal and and coloured enamel applications, covers elaborately gilt; large central ornament on upper cover monogrammed "LW"; gilt fillets and four bosses on lower cover. Moirée silk pastedowns and cardboard endpapers. All edges gilt. Splendid, perfectly preserved gratulatory album, dedicated by his co-workers to the joiner and social-democratic politician Laurenz Widholz (1861-1926) "in commemoration of your twenty years as chairman of assistants and as an activist in free organizing" (as the calligraphic title in black, red, and gold reads). The photographs, captioned in letterpress, show Widholz, the Vienna committee of joiner assistants, and agitation committees of the various districts of Vienna, of the machine workers, builders, crate carpenters, and the joiners' choir. - Laurenz Widholz, a pioneer of workers' insurance, chairman of the Viennese joiners' health fund and of the Association of Lower Austrian Co-operative Health Insurers, was the first social democrat to win a direct seat in the parliament (for Vienna's Simmering district in 1907); he would remain a member until his death. In 1919/20 he served as deputy governor of Lower Austria. His name is commemorated in Simmering by the Widholzgasse street and by the residential building "Widholzhof", which was heavily damaged during the Austrian Civil War of February 1934. The present congratulatory address thus represents an interesting document of the history of Austrian socialism. - A fine example of the remarkable workmanship practised by the Viennese bookbinding concern F. W. Papke, founded in 1841 and located at the Mozartplatz in the 4th district.

        Le Mythe vertuïste et la littérature immorale [ Edition originale - Livre dédicacé par l'auteur ]

      1 vol. in-12 reliure demi-basane bordeaux, coll. Etudes sur le Devenir social, Librairie des Sciences Politiques et Sociales, Marcel Rivière et Cie, Paris, 1911, 2 ff., 186 pp. Etat modeste (mouill. et reliure cintrée) pour ce rare exemplaire de l'édition originale, dédicacé par Vilfredo Pareto à son disciple Georges-henri Bousquet "Témoignage d'amitié". Successeur de Léon Walras dans la chaire de Lausanne, le sociologue et économiste Vilfredo Pareto (1848-1923) reste l'un des plus fameux intellectuels de son temps. Le dédicataire, qui devint plus tard professeur d'Université à Alger et Bordeaux, Georges-Henri Bousquet (1900-1978), était juriste de formation initiale (docteur en droit en 1923 avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922"). Mais il reste surtout connu comme un économiste ami de Pareto et Schumpeter, ainsi que comme un islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje. Bousquet était proche de son maître en sociologie Vilfredo Pareto, dont il servit fortement la pensée. Les deux hommes entretinrent une correspondance, et Bousquet visita son vieux maître dans sa villa de Céligny, vers Pâques 1923. On peut signaler que le Professeur Bousquet est l'un des rares économistes français contemporains à être plusieurs fois cité dans la monumentale Histoire de l'Analyse Economique écrite par Joseph Schumpeter à la fin de sa vie. Les deux hommes se connaissaient personnellement depuis une première rencontre à Vienne en 1923. Français

        Dementia Praecox oder Gruppe der Schizophrenen.

Vermerk auf Vorsatz, im vorderen Gelenk etwas gelockert, Seiten sauber, letzte Seite minimal an Oberkante eingerissen, gut erhaltenes Exemplar. In Antiqua-Schrift. * ZUM AUTOR: Paul Eugen Bleuler (1857-1939), Schweizer Psychiater. Bekannt geworden ist Bleuler vor allem durch seine Beschreibung der Schizophrenie (1911: Dementia praecox oder Gruppe der Schizophrenien), mit der er den bisherigen Begriff Dementia praecox von Emil Kraepelin ersetzt hatte. Für Bleuler war die Ambivalenz das Hauptsympton der Schizophrenie. Mit seinem Werk über die Schizophrenie brachte Bleuler vier Neuerungen hervor: 1. Einführung des Begriffes "Schizophrenie" unter Einbeziehung einer Reihe von Krankheitszuständen; 2. Ein dynamisches Krankheitskonzept; 3. Interpretation schizophrener Wahnideen; 4. Optimistische Anschauung der Therapierbarkeit der Schizophrenien in allen Stadien. Bleuler war der erste Ordinarius, der die neuen Lehren von S. Freud in der Psychiatrie zur Anwendung brachte. Vorliegendes Werk gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Beiträge zur Psychiatrie im 20. Jahrhundert. ****An unsere Kunden in Deutschland: Versand nach Deutschland zweimal in der Woche ab Freilassing mit der Deutschen Post.

        Klacht van Oisin [&] Leven en Lied [&] Troosten'.

      Origineel handschrift. 20,4 x 16,0 cm. Acht bladen. Alleen recto. Niet gesigneerd. Niet gedateerd [1911]. Met een enkele inktveeg. Vouw. Drie vroege verzen van Roland Holst, waarvan het eerste verreweg het bekendst is. De dichter, die van jongs af aan gefascineerd was door Keltische mythen en sagen, schreef met 'Klacht van Oisin' zijn eerste, verhalende gedicht waarin de oud-Ierse stof is verwerkt. Het lange gedicht herinnert tevens aan Yeats' 'Wanderings of Oisin'. 'Klacht van Oisin' werd evenwel door Roland Holst zelf niet in een (verzamel)bundel opgenomen.Deze drie gedichten in handschrift waren bestemd voor de redactie van De Gids, in welk tijdschrift ze in 1912 zouden worden gepubliceerd. Een drukproef van die publicatie, met een enkele verbetering in de kantlijn, is bijgevoegd.

        ACCIDENT PREVENTION AND INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE AT THE DRESDEN INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION 1911 (TYPESCRIPT)

      No publisher (1911) - Bound in light brown buckram with title printed in black on spine (13 5/16" X 8 15/16") 121 pages text on recto only. Binding is lightly soiled, end papers are a light blue, pages numbered in pencil at bottom. Binding very tight and square holding a few typed tissue pages and many typed and illustrated heavy stock pages, a few illustrations loose. This is a unique volume as its contents are hand assembled by I assume William Howe Tolman, the person generally given credit for the term "social engineering". Tolman was an early proponent of work place safety in the United States at a time when machines were being used to increase production to such an extent that safety was not a consideration. If hurt or killed on the job, the most ones family could expect would be 6 months pay. He also was a proponent of wearing safety gear or clothing when working around hazardous materials. He traveled the country lecturing large companies in ways to make the work environment safer and healthier in order to actually improve production. The Dresden Exhibition of 1911 was organized by a successful German mouthwash company owner. It's aim was to educate people as to hygiene (hence the mouthwash company) and safety in all aspects of life. 30 countries participated with nearly 20,000 exhibits, and attendance was said to be 5 million visitors. This volume consists of typed pages, a small amount of manuscript, illustrations both cut from other publications as well as original photographs, colored graphs and charts. The information consists mostly of showing workplace machines and ways to prevent injury when using the machines. In some cases what to do once injured. This book was either compiled as notes for a presentation or as a mock up for possible publication. The Dresden Exhibition had a lasting impact as it spawned The German Hygiene Museum and is said to have been the beginning of sports medicine. Quite a one of a kind unique look into the history of modern work place safety. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE TALE OF TIMMY TIPTOES

      1911. London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1911. Original light brown paper boards with arched pictorial onlay. First Edition of these adventures of Timmy Tiptoes (and his wife Goody), grey squirrels trying to get nuts collected and stored up for the oncoming winter. Timmy is wrongly accused of stealing other squirrels' nuts and is thrown through a tree-hole into his and Goody's nut storehouse -- where he gets sidetracked and eats so many of the nuts that he becomes too fat to get out. The presence of chipmunks and a bear in this tale have led to speculation that the author had American children in mind when she wrote and illustrated this book.~Customers could buy TIMMY TIPTOES in either light brown or dark green paper boards, priced at 1/-, or in decorated cloth, at 1/6. This copy is in light brown boards, and is in very good-plus condition (very slight wear at the spine ends); the half-title bears a "Nov. 1911" mother-to-son gift inscription. Linder pp 208-209 and p. 429; Quinby 20.

        Photograph album.

      Shanghai, early 20th century. - Oblong folio (362 x 274 mm). Contemporary block-bound silk album of 111 photographs. Various sizes; largest 212 x 155 mm. A photograph album comprising 111 personal photographs of Shanghai, including several images of battleships, various English-language shop signs for local businesses (such as "Hsing Loong Carpenter Mason and Painter"), and 12 photographs showing the burial procession of the mother of Shanghai business man Pau Ching Po. Also, there are several photographs of the 1911 Xinhai Revolution in Shanghai: in November 1911, Shanghai citizens organised a rebellion and captured the city, establishing the Shanghai military on 8 November that same year. The photographs offered here depict the uprising in the streets as well as scenes of destroyed homes and weapons used when taking the city. The revolution resulted in the overthrow of the last imperial monarchy in China and the establishment of the Republic of China in 1912. - Also includes images of the German Theatre at the Lyceum, founded in 1930 as an amateur dramatics society, a photograph of the Prince Adalbert of Prussia (1884-1948) at the Club Concordia in 1904 laying the foundation stone to the new German Club in Shanghai, and three photographs of the wedding of Wilhelm Knappe (1855-1910), the German Consul General in Shanghai from 1899 to 1906. - Very well preserved. Provenance: From the collection of Johannes Gottfried William Schröder (1870-1942). Born in India, the brother of the German poet Rudolf Alexander Schröder grew up in Bremen, trained as a merchant and visited India, China, Japan, and America. He established his own business in Shanghai in 1906. His intimate knowledge of East Asia led him to embrace the philosophy of anthroposophy.
