        Esboço critico da civilisação chineza . com um prefácio do Exmo. Sr. Dr. Camillo Pessanha.

      Macau, Typ. Mercantil de N.T. Fernandes e Filhos, 1912. - 8°, twentieth century (third quarter?) half brown morocco over marbled boards, spine with raised bands in five unequal compartments, gilt fillets and lettering, marbled endleaves, original gray printed wrappers bound in. Some slight toning and occasional very light foxing. In very good condition. (1 blank l., 2 ll.), lxi, 64 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The interesting preface by Camilo Pessanha (dated 1912) occupies almost half the book. The main text has a chapter on traces of ancient civilization in China (including a page of music transcriptions) and a second on the gradual decadence of Chinese civilization and customs. This is a fascinating look at China barely a decade after the Boxer Rebellion, with comments on feng shui (fong soy, pp. 34-5), yin and yang (pp. 13-4), Taoism (p. 16), the cult of the dead, the emperor's library (pp. 25-6), bonzo (self-immolation, p. 39), and magic and superstition.Camilo [de Almeida] Pessanha (1867-1926) helped found the Portuguese symbolist movement while studying at the University of Coimbra, where he and several friends (Eugénio de Castro, António Nobre, Alberto de Oliveira and Alberto Osório de Castro) published Os Insubmissos and Boémia Nova. Pessanha seems to have been indifferent about whether his own works were published, and only a few of his poems appeared in the 1880's and 1890's, scattered in periodicals. In 1894 he left for Macau, where he spent most of the rest of his life. On a trip back to Lisbon in 1916, he dictated many of his works (which he knew by heart, and rarely wrote down), some of which appeared in the review Centauro. Clepsydra, his most famous work, appeared four years later, from the press of his cousin Ana de Castro Osório. He exerted a significant influence on the first generation of Portuguese modernists. J. Antonio Filippe de Moraes Palha was a friend of Camilo Pessanha who appears to have spent considerable time in Macau. In addition to the present book, he wrote De Portugal a Macau através da historia, as well as a book on public health in Macau.*** Gomes, Bibliografia macaense 1159 (without mention of the 2 unnumbered preliminary leaves, or the initial and final blanks). On Camilo Pessanha, see Saraiva & Lopes, História da literatura portuguesa (16th ed.) pp. 1023-4, 1032-3, et passim; Fernando Guimarães in Machado, ed., Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, pp. 375-6; J.C.

        The South Pole: An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram," 1910-1912

      Two volumes. First English edition,; 8vo; Volume I portrait frontispiece, two maps, 84 mostly photographic illustrations; Volume II three maps and two folding charts and plans, 53 mostly photographic illustrations; original maroon cloth, upper covers with red border enclosing image of Norwegian flag and lettered in gilt, spines with image of Norwegian flag and lettered in gilt, top edges gilt. The South Pole was published three months before Scott's death. As Kossow states it is to the publishers credit that they produced this set of real quality, incorporating the Norwegian flag, "despite realising that British disappointment at being beaten to the Pole would ensure that it was not a publishing success in the UK." A fine set some browning to endpapers, some light spotting to the page edges, in Volume II, there is a short repaired tear to the folding map, slight wear to head and foot of spines, extremities very lightly rubbed. A lovely set not often found in this condition.

        Störungen des Trieb- und Affektlebens (die parapathischen Erkrankungen).

      Berlin und Wien: Urban & Schwarzenberg, 1912–1928 (10 Bände). - Kompletter Satz des Hauptwerkes von Wilhelm Stekel (1868.1940), der zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts ein begeisterter Anhänger Sigmund Freuds war, jedoch sagte sich dieser später im Dissens los. Die Serie "Störungen des Trieb- und Affektlebens" begann mit der 2. Auflage des Buches "Nervöse Angstzustände.". Für die erste Auflage von 1908 hatte Freud noch im Vorwort geschrieben, dass Stekel die Klinik der Neurosen "auf Grund meiner Anschauungen" bearbeiten wolle und dass die Erfahrungen mit der psychoanalytischen Methode gewonnen seien, ab der 3. Auflage war dieses Vorwort gestrichen. Im Band VIII dieser Reihe bezieht Stekel dann klar gegen Freud Stellung: "Die orthodoxe `Psychoanalyse` hat sich fast gänzlich metaphysischer Spekulation ergeben" und in Band IX ist er noch schärfer und bezeichnet die Lehre vom Unbewußten als ". psychonalytische Rumpelkammer, in die man alles hineinwerfen kann, was in andere Systeme nicht passen will: Widerstände und Übertragung, Liebe und Haß, Ideale und Laster.!" (p. 215). Vorhanden sind Band I: Nervöse Angstzustände und ihre Behandlung. 1912 (2. Aufl.); Band II: Onanie und Homosexualität. Die homosexuelle Parapathie. 1923; Band III: Die Geschlechtskälte der Frau. Eine Psychopathologie des weiblichen Liebeslebens. 1920; Band IV: Die Impotenz des Mannes. Die psychischen Störungen der männlichen Sexualfunktion. 1920; Band V: Psychosexueller Infantilismus. Die seelischen Kinderkrankheiten der Erwachsenen. 1922; Band VI: Impulshandlungen. Wandertrieb, Dipsomanie, Kleptomanie, Pyromanie und verwandte Zustände. 1922; Band VII: Der Fetischismus.

Erster Teil. 1927; Band X: Zwang und Zweifel. Für Ärzte und Mediziner dargestellt. Zweiter Teil. 1928. - "Stekel was a prolific writer, producing fifty books (many of them for a general readership), hundreds of newspaper articles, and numerous scientific papers. The most important part of Stekel`s psychoanalytical work is contained in his ten-volume Störungen des Trieb- und Affektlebens (Disturbances of the impulses and the emotions). The first volume was Conditions of Nervous Anxiety and Their Treatment (1923). It was followed by volumes on masturbation and homosexuality, frigidity in women, impotence in men, psycho-sexual infantilism, peculiarities of behavior, fetishism, sadism and masochism, and finally two volumes on compulsion and doubt" (Intern.

Envoi autographe daté et signé de Léon-Paul Fargue : «  à mademoiselle Lilita Abreu, le 29 mars 1912. "Ecoutez la chanson bien douce qui ne pleure que pour vous plaire... (Paul Verlaine)". » Issue d'une riche famille cubaine et proche des milieux littéraires, la belle Rosalia « Lilita » Sanchez Abreu (1886-1955) grandit entre Paris et La Havane. Après avoir charmé toute la NRF ou presque, inspirant plusieurs passions dévorantes dont celles de Jean Giraudoux et de Léon-Paul Fargue, elle épouse en 1921 Albert Henraux, ami de Marcel Proust et conservateur du Musée Condé à Chantilly. Dans les années 1930, elle-même sensible à la séduction des écrivains, elle deviendra la muse et la compagne de Saint-John-Perse. Intimidé par la troublante Lilita, Fargue choisit pour cette émouvante dédicace un vers de Sagesse de Paul Verlaine - qu'il avait connu dans les cafés du Quartier Latin - comme intercesseur subtil de ses sentiments les plus intimes. Rencontrée le 16 janvier 1912 chez Yvonne Redelsperger (future épouse de Gaston Gallimard), Fargue s'éprend rapidement de Lilita et dans son poème Solitude composé les mois suivants, la décrit ainsi : « Elle sent la branche verte d'un arbre tropical... / Lorsqu'elle se penche, il vous semble qu'il va tomber / de sa tête une pluie de fleurs ténébreuses, odorantes / et vanillées, comme un essaim d'étoiles sombres... » La correspondance littéraire et tourmentée de Fargue avec la jeune femme (publiée sous le titre Chère Lilita. Dix lettres de Léon Paul Fargue à Lilita Abreu, Paris, Balbec, 1988) témoigne de l'importance de leur relation. Il écrit : « Lilita, mon amie, je pense à notre soirée et j'en suis réconforté. Vous me faites du bien et vous m'êtes utile. Vous me donnez envie de travailler, de me surpasser, d'être heureux. Auprès de vous, je me sens d'une gaîté tendre, puissant, confiant.

        The Peter Pan Portfolio,

      London: Hodder & Stoughton,, [1912]. from "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens", by J. M. Barrie. Elephant folio. Original full vellum portfolio, titles to front cover gilt, with the original ivory silk ties laced to a large bow at the spine and with two pairs of original ivory silk ties to the fore edges. In the original green cloth-sided card box with full-page printed paper label to front. Housed in a custom green quarter morocco solander box. 12 large proof-size colour plates mounted in mats, with captioned tissue guards, by Rackham. The box a little worn in places, but a fine copy, a remarkable survival of this luxurious presentation. Deluxe extra-limited edition, number 13 of 100 copies signed by the publisher and engraver on the limitation page and each plate signed on the mount by the artist, bound in full vellum. According to Latimore & Haskell, although Rackham was supposed to sign all 100 copies, the artist admitted that he had signed only about 20 of them. Copies numbered 101 to 600 were issued in a half vellum portfolio with green cloth sides; none of these was signed by Rackham. The Peter Pan Portfolio reproduces 12 of Rackham's favourite illustrations at their original size. Barrie wrote enthusiastically of Rackham's originals, which he had seen exhibited at the Leicester Galleries, "I like best of all the Serpentine with the fairies, and the Peter in his night-gown sitting in the tree. Next I would [sic] the flying Peters, the fairies going to the ball (as in the 'tiff' and the fairy on cobweb) ? the fairies sewing the leaves with their sense of fun (the gayest thing this) and your treatment of snow" (Ray 329). Barrie's comments seemingly influenced Rackham's selection, as the portfolio includes all the images the author mentioned.

Then, too, he was really more attached to truth than the poets are; for the latter do violence to their own stories in order to make them probable; but he by announcing a story which everyone knows not to be true, told the truth by the very fact that he did not claim to be relating real events" (Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Book V:14).Lattimore and Haskell, pp. 38-9. Riall, p. 111.
