        La Quatrième arme. Le Gagnant du Concours Militaire [and] La Revue de Printemps vue à bord du dirigeable "Capitaine Ferber".

      Mabileau & Co. Paris 1912 - Two hand-coloured pochoir prints; one with two corners chipped. Size: 68 cm x 34 cm. Striking record of early military aviation, at the dawn of World War I. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Zeppelins and Tennis. 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]

        THE STONEGROUND GHOST TALES COMPILED FROM THE RECOLLECTIONS OF THE REVEREND ROLAND BATCHEL, VICAR OF THE PARISH

      W. Heffer & Sons Ltd., Cambridge 1912 - Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-187 [188: printer's imprint], original pictorial blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. A collection of nine ghost stories dedicated to Swain's longtime friend M. R. James. ". Swain's tales share many features with those of James' and draw on the friends' common interests and antiquarian studies. They are however rather milder in tone and regularly incorporate a playful humour not often found in James' work. The tales relate the adventures of a fictionalized version of the author, Mr Batchel, Rector of Stoneground parish. Although by today's standards, readers may find Swain's stories rather lacking in supernatural horrors, their subtle qualities become apparent on re-reading, and many find Mr Batchel one of the most enduring creations of English ghost fiction." - Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 468.

Chemise toile verte de l'éditeur imprimée en caractères or style Art Nouveau avec petits décors dorés sur le premier plat. Pas de lacets (qui n'ont jamais été mis). Très bon état. A noter le feuillet de table et d'épître avec brunissure partielle. Les lithographies sont superbes. TIRAGE UNIQUE A 300 EXEMPLAIRES. Il est mentionné que les exemplaires de 1 à 10 sont tirés sur Japon avec remarques et signature de l'auteur. Cet exemplaire porte le n°94 à la plume et un envoi autographe de l'artiste Ludovic Alleaume : "Souvenir bien amical au sculpteur de talent Raymond Sudre, notre bon Président du Salon d'Hiver. Signé : Ludovic Alleaume." UN DES RARES EXEMPLAIRES IMPRIMÉS EN SANGUINE (non signalés), sans doute réservés aux exemplaires de présent. Avec une petite remarque pour chaque lithographie. Elles sont pourtant imprimées sur papier vélin fort légèrement teinté et non sur Japon. Ce recueil de planche est rare et les seuls rencontrés à ce jour étaient imprimés en noir. Ces 10 superbes planches lithographiées de très grand format montrent la femme au réveil, le matin, dans différentes attitudes sensuelles. Elles sont ainsi titrées : Eveil - Petit déjeuner - Cheveux sous le peigne - Les épingles - Le journal - Premier pas - Les ongles - Irrésolution - La chemise - Les bas. Ludovic Alleaume (1859-1941) est un peintre de l'école d'Angers puis de l'école de Paris (ateliers de Ernest Hébert et de Luc-Olivier Merson). Il est connu principalement pour ses portraits. The painter and lithographer Ludovic Alleaume was born in Angers (Maine-et-Loire); for some reason a mistaken belief that he was born in Russia has taken root on the internet. Alleaume was a pupil of Ernest Hébert and Luc-Olivier Merson at the Beaux-Arts, Paris. He exhibited with the Salon des Artistes Français from 1883 to 1938. From 1894 Ludovic Alleaume also exhibited with the Société des Peintres-lithographes. In 1890 he travelled to Palestine, making many sketches on which he relied in his subsequent Biblical paintings. Alleaume also painted portraits and landscapes, and painted murals in churches. In style, Alleaume remained faithful to the academic tradition, unaffected by new movements in art subsequent to the Barbizon School.

      Paris FLOURY 1912 1 in-8Paris, Floury, 1931, in-8, couverture illustrée en couleurs, chagrin havane mosaïqué du Professor Knatschké représenté de face, canne à la main, montrant le titre mosaïqué de lettres vertes, dos titré mosaïqué au nom de l'auteur, garde de papier reliure bordée de chagrin havane, 140 pages. Grand succès de ce roman paru en 1912 (celui-ci annoncé cinquante-huitième mille), traduit de l'allemand. HANSI, dans sa préface, précise "sa profonde pénétration des moeurs et de la décadence française, sa critique courageuse de la situation de la France sont, plus que quoi que ce soit, de nature à démontrer la colossale supériorité de Berlin aux Alsaciens qui s'obstinent à lui préférer Paris." Petites usures à la reliure, infimes déchirures.

        La spedizione nel Karakoram e nell'Imalaia occidentale: 1909. Illustrata da Vittorio Sella.

      Zanichelli, Bologna, 1912. 2 v. (XIX 471 110 p. [33] c. di tav. [20] c. di tav. ) 27 cm m. perg. Filippo De Filippi nacque a Torino il 6 aprile 1869. Dopo essersi brillantemente laureato a soli 22 anni (4 luglio 1891) in Medicina e Chirurgia presso la Regia Università degli Studi di Torino si occupò per qualche anno di fisiologia e chimica biologica specializzandosi in istituti scientifici tedeschi ed austriaci. La prima esperienza come membro di una spedizione extraeuropea Filippi De Filippi la maturò nel 1897 anno in cui fu chiamato dal duca degli Abruzzi ad unirsi al gruppo che si sarebbe diretto al Sant'Elia (5514 m) in Alaska. Ciò che si conosce di questo viaggio culminato con la conquista della cima della montagna proviene principalmente dalla relazione stesa dallo stesso De Filippi e pubblicata nel 1900 da Hoepli con il titolo La spedizione di S.A.R. il Principe Luigi Amedeo di Savoia Duca degli Abruzzi al Monte Sant'Elia (Alaska). Nel 1909 prese parte alla spedizione del duca al Karakoram di cui questo volume è la relazione. Ancora oggi a distanza di un secolo il toponimo "Ghiacciaio De Filippi" ricorda a chiunque consulti una carta della regione del K2 la partecipazione ed il ruolo svolto dal Nostro in quella che è forse la più celebre delle spedizioni di Luigi Amedeo di Savoia. Segue la suite dei "Panorami e carte" con 18 grandi panorami in 17 fogli e 3 carte geografiche a colori il tutto custodito in una cartella in mezza pergamena con piatti in carta decorata. PRIMA EDIZIONE di questo bellissimo viaggio organizzato dal Duca degli Abruzzi nel 1909 sul massiccio pakistano del Karakorum e relazionato da Filippo De Filippi che partecipò alla spedizione. Sul K2 la comitiva italiana scoprì la via di salita lungo lo sperone est della montagna che è ancora oggi chiamata "Sperone degli Abruzzi". La vetta della celebre montagna non fu conquistata in quell''occasione (lo sarà solamente nel 1954 durante un'altra spedizione italiana quella guidata da Ardito Desio) ma il Duca degli Abruzzi e i UsatoBuono Anno pubblicazione: [1912].

        La spedizione nel Karakoram e nell'Imalaia Occidentale 1909. Relazione illustrata da Vittorio Sella

      Nicola Zanichelli, 1912. 2 parti in un vol. in - 8° grande (267x200mm), di cui la prima di testo, di pp. XIX, 471 + (4), 110, (6) di "Relazioni scientifiche"di Federico Negrotto Cambiaso, Domenico Omodei, Vittorio Novarese, ecc. Solida legatura editoriale m. pergamena con titolo in oro al dorso e piatti in cartone a decori floreali e a entrelac in bianco su fondo rosso. Sguardie decorate. Circa 200 immagini fotografiche in b.n. intercalate n.t. e 33 tavv. fotografiche f.t. (di cui una all'antiporta, con il K2 dalla cresta meridionale dello Staircase), il tutto da fotografie originali prese in loco da Vittorio Sella. Stampato su carta appositamente fabbricata dalla Cartiera Italiana di Torino; tavole fotoincise su rame e stampate da Neisenbach, Riffarth e C. di Berlino; le carte geografiche furono disegnate e stampate dall'Istituto Geografico Militare di Torino. Etichetta del tempo della libreria Casanova di Torino. Perfetto stato. Prima edizione (non è presente, come spesso avviene, il raro fascicolo di allegati, che doveva comprendere 18 grandi panorami in 17 fogli e 3 carte geografiche a colori, il tutto più volte ripiegato),dell'importante resoconto della spedizione al Karakorum del Duca degli Abruzzi, che, nel 1909, accompagnato dalle guide di Courmayeur Joseph e Laurent Petigax, Joseph Brocherel e César Ollier, tentò infruttuosamente di ascendere per primo sulla vetta del K2. Pur non arrivando alla vetta, il Duca degli Abruzzi salì sino ai 7.500 m del Bride Peak, altezza mai raggiunta sino ad allora dall'uomo. "Ancora una volta mi affido al Dott. Filippo De Filippi, mio compagno di viaggio, per la relazione completa della mia ultima spedizione. Gli sono riconoscente di aver accettato l'incarico, e spero che il rinnovato ricordo delle emozioni provate sia valso a rendergli meno gravoso il lavoro. La storia particolareggiata delle nostre peripezie darà conto delle difficoltà e degli ostacoli che ha incontrato la spedizione, meglio della succinta esposizione che ne ho potuto fare nelle mie conferenze al Club Alpino ed alla Società Geografica. La carta del ghiacciaio Baltoro unita a questo libro venne composta e delineata all'Istituto Geografico Militare di Firenze dai panorami fotogrammetrici, sussidiati da osservazioni col teodolite, eseguiti durante la campagna dal Ten. di Vascello Marchese Federico Negrotto Cambiaso.. Mi auguro che questo libro, colla efficace scorta delle bellissime illustrazioni di Vittorio Sella, riesca a comunicare ai lettori l'impressione profonda che fece su di noi la natura grandiosa nella quale vivemmo per pochi mesi. Il nostro lavoro non sarà stato inutile se potrà riuscire di qualche aiuto ai futuri esploratori di quelle lontane regioni" (dalla prefazione del Duca degli Abruzzi stesso). Il De Filippi (Milano, 1814 - Hong Kong, 1867) fu naturalista, allievo dello Zendrini a Pavia, professore di zoologia a Torino e, nella stessa città, direttore del Museo Zoologico (di cui arricchì straordinariamente le collezioni) e membro dell'Accademia delle Scienze. Senatore dal 1865, morì a bordo della corvetta "Magenta" in prossimità di Hong Kong. Si occupò di zoologia generale, di ittiologia, elmintologia, erpetologia, geologia, mineralogia, anatomia comparata, embriologia, sostenendo inizialmente la tesi già altamente obsoleta della generazione spontanea, che presto ritrattò. Tra i primi introduttori italiani del darwinismo, con la celebre conferenza dell'11 gennaio 1864 "L'uomo e le scimmie", più volte ripubblicata e destinata a scandalizzare il mondo scientifico italiano, ancora impreparato alle rivoluzionarie tesi dell'evoluzionismo, dette importanti contributi allo studio dello sviluppo dei Trematodi.

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.
