      - Kyoto 1912-21. 4 volumes. 4to (250 x 180mm). With 400 beautifully hand-coloured woodcuts. Contemporary silk bound volumes, in a Japanese cloth case. A complete copy of this very scarce beautifully produced Japanese work on shells. Hirase Yoichiro (1859-1925), Japans most famous conchologist at the turn of the century, established his own Conchological Museum in Kyoto in 1936 and founded the short-lived 'Conchological Magazine' in 1907. He assembled the largest collection of shells in Japan. "Four silk-bound volumes of this unique conchological publication were issued, each containing many illustrations produced from woodcuts and coloured by hand in traditional Japanese style. almost single-handed, he placed his country on the conchological map." (Dance, Hist. of Shell Collecting p. 181). "This is why I have used the wood-cut art, which has been existing a long time in Kyoto, and has advanced to an excellent state of development" (From the Introduction). A fine copy of a rare book illustrating Japanese shells in a traditional Japanese manner. "Kai Sen Shu is unique among conchological publications and is highly prized by each fortunate owner of a copy" (Dance, Shells p. 126). The title of the book is commonly quoted as 'Kai sen Shu' but the correct title according to Mr. Paul Callomon is 'Kai Chigusa'.Dance 150. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Collection of 17 autograph letters and postcards spanning the years 1965-2001, all to the distinguished music administrator and author Renée Levine [Packer], with some to both Levine [Packer] and violist Jessy Levine

      Lukas Foss was an American composer, conductor, and pianist. "For all their diverse styles, Foss';s works spring from a distinct personality: enthusiastic, curious and receptive to every kind of musical idea. Not coincidentally, these are the same attitudes he instilled in audiences with his performances of the classical repertory and new music. In short, he was one of his era';s most communicative and representative composer-performers." Gilbert Chase and David Wright in Grove Music Online. "Born in France, raised in New York and Mexico City, [Renée] Levine Packer worked with Lukas Foss and was co-director with Morton Feldman of the renowned contemporary music group in Buffalo, New York, and a director of the Contemporary Music Festival at the California Institute of the Arts. She was Director of the Inter-Arts program at the National Endowment for the Arts, the producer of Steve Reich and Beryl Korot's multimedia opera The Cave, and a dean at the Maryland Institute College of Art." Oxford University Press online. 1. Autograph letter signed "Love Lukas" to Levine [Packer] and noted violist Jessy Levine. 1 page, ca. 103 x 147 mm. Postmarked [Switzerland] [?] 24, [19]65. In blue ink on a postcard with a photograph of Rorschach am Bodensee to verso. Foss's trips to France and Germany inspire a little bathroom humor. "... Berlin greatest success ever. Tip about European travel: in France the food is great, in Germany the toilets are great. The trick is to go to France first...." Minor soiling and wear. A few small stains to left edge, slightly affecting one letter. 2. Autograph letter signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer] and Jessy Levine. 1 page, ca. 109 x 150 mm. Postmarked São Paolo, August 29, [19]67. On blue ink on a postcard with a panoramic view of Botafoga Bay and Sugar Loaf in Rio de Janeiro to verso. Foss has conducted some very successful performances of orchestral works by Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, and Ravel - as well as his own recent composition, Phorion - in Rio de Janeiro and São Paolo. He states that a certain "Eleazar" - perhaps the Brazilian composer and conductor Eleazar Carvalho (1912-1996) - had not received Jessy's wires until returning to Rio, but has nevertheless been wonderful to him. "Dearest ones! In love with Rio (it works both way, the love affair, 1st concert crazy success (all Brahms) - now in Sao Paolo, (another orchestra) Leonore 3, Bach D minor piano concerto, Phorion, Daphnis, the back to Rio for panamerica program... " 3. Autograph letter signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 1 page. ca. 103 x 149 mm. Dated [Torino] April 17, [19]68. In blue ink on a postcard with a photograph of the Solferino Square and Angelica Fountation in Turin, Italy to verso. Foss sends his greetings to Packer and others at the University of Buffalo. "Hi!!! Hope all is well, under control. And that I am found dispensable (but terribly missed at the same time). Fond greetings to all C.A.'s (incl. Egon). Love to Jessy [?], Allen and especially to your pretty self." 4. Autograph letter signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer] and Jessy Levine. 1 page, ca. 103 x 145 mm. Postmarked Bellagio, September 21, [19]69. In black ink on a postcard with a photograph of the Villa Serbelloni on Lake Como. Foss sends his regards from Italy, where he is "going crazy here with all the beauty, the flowers, the gardens, trees, wines... " Having just completed a new orchestral piece (likely Geod), he is off to Germany for "some contrast." He hopes Renée had a good time in Mexico, even without Jessy. He asks how "our orchestra" (probably the Buffalo Philharmonic) is faring. Light wear; minor coffee stain, slightly affecting several words. 5. Autograph letter signed "Love Lukas" to Levine [Packer] and Jessy Levine. 1 page, ca. 104 x 149 mm. Postmarked Baden-Baden, November 27, [19]69. In purple ink on a postcard with a reproduction of Max Ernst's painting, The Elephant of the Celebes, to verso. Foss sends playful greetings to the Levines and others in Buffalo. "Here's the decor for my piece for Pomos [?] (if I do one) to be performed with Lions and/or Avalanche. And how's my beloved Buffalo Phil[harmonic]? Say hello to Everyone... Paris was wild, heaven and incredible success." Minor soiling and wear. 6. Autograph letter signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer] and Jessy Levine. 1 page, ca. 103 x 145 mm. Postmarked Kyoto, August 29, [19]70. Written in blue ink on a postcard with a photograph of Himeji Castle to verso. A humorous account of the difficulties and delights of Foss's trip to Japan, which includes attending a puppet theater with Leonard Bernstein. He also mentions a certain "De Pablo" - perhaps the Spanish composer Luis de Pablo (b. 1930) - who never showed up to the "Expo." "Venice [?] was more my kind of trip. And it would be better if you were here too. Communication is rough. Since it is impolite to say no a typical exchange is something like: 'Will you have drinks?' 'Yes.' 'O.K. let's go.' 'I cannot.' 'Then we can't have drinks.' 'Yes.' - Tonight to the puppet theater (with L. Bernstein). Kyoto is tremendous. Expo went o.k. Space theater the best ever. Renée, de Pablo never showed up... " 7. Autograph letter signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer] and Jessy Levine. 1 page, ca. 103 x 148 mm. Postmarked Tel Aviv, January 10, [19]72. Written in blue ink on a postcard with a view of the Shalom Mayer Tower in Tel Aviv to verso. Foss sends his greetings from Israel, where is is busy performing, interviewing, and studying Israeli scores. He notes that, although Israel is beautiful, "postcards is not Israel's strong point." He has met one of the Levine's friend, a violinist, in Jerusalem. "... Mad life, beautiful country. Concerts every day. (Each program 6 times) and rehearsals almost every day (3 hours)... The reviews: loveletters. No fun, but success (am I getting old?)... The orchestra is very good and very good to me. Do you still have your Mexican tan? Renée?... " Very light soiling and wear. Minor erasures and autograph corrections to recipients' names in address panel. 8. Autograph letter signed "Love Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 1 page, ca. 85 x 135 mm. Postmarked Bridgehampton, August [?]1, 1973. In black ink on a postcard from the Hotel Cortes in Mexico City. Foss has recently conducted the Orchestra de las Americas in Mexico. He will leave again in September with the Brooklyn Orchestra, and urges Packer to fly with them. He comments on Packer's recent departure from Buffalo, presumably to take a position a the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California. "... We miss you. Write some news. Buffalo (where I go in December) will feel different without you. Give my best to Carol P. if you speak to her. And do drop your old friend a card." 9. Autograph letter signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 1 page, ca. 98 x 218 mm. Postmarked 1973. In blue marker on an Israeli Airlines postcard. Foss discusses the American composer Paul Reif (1910-1978), who submitted several compositions, presumably to the contemporary music group in Buffalo. He wonders whether Morton Feldman, fellow composer and co-director of the group, can examine them. "... Paul Reif (I think that's the name) sent 4 pieces to you months ago: Trio - Septet - Sextet - Duo for 3. Any of these performable? Wished I had glanced at them while in Buffalo. He may be o.k. Perhaps Morton can look the stuff over... " Moderately dampstained at lower margin, slightly affecting signature and a few words. Some creasing at corners. Minor soiling, staining, and wear. 10. Autograph letter signed "Love Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 1 page, ca. 103 x 148 mm. Postmarked Torino, February 16, [19]78. In black ink on a postcard with a photograph of the S. Giovanni Battista Cathedral in Turin, Italy to verso. Foss sends his greetings to Packer and others in Buffalo. He suggests that she program his newly composed work, Music for Six (1977), on her "final concert." He also mentions Arthur Cohn (1910-1998), an American composer, conductor, and director of "serious music" at the Carl Fischer music publishing house. "... By now it is clear the piece can't be ready for your final concert. So why not do my new 15 minute piece: Music for Six (any six). Arthur Cohn has it at Fischer's. I'll come for the event, not for Foss but for Levine. O.K.?... Life in Italy is o.k. but Torino is a bore... " Corners with minor creasing and wear. Small stain to upper margin, not affecting text. 11. Autograph letter signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 1 page, ca. 140 x 88 mm. Dated [Bridgehampton], July 25, 2001. In black ink on a white postcard. With Levine Packer's Baltimore address to verso. "... Your work is progressing well. Yes - I'll help pick the rising young composers you will need for Carnegie Hall... " Very light soiling and wear. Date and one letter of signature very lightly smeared, not affecting legibility. 12. Autograph note signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 1 page, ca. 142 x 255 mm. No date. In black marker on heavy dark ivory paper. Foss sends Packer a gift, and a playful birthday greeting. "Dear Birthday Child, since they didn't have a bottle of teargas perfume I though you might like this..... Ciao - a big hug." Minor creasing at central fold and left corners; trimmed at lower edge, not affecting text. 13. Autograph letter signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 1 page, ca. 86 x 138 mm. No date. In ink on postcard with a photograph of the Hotel "Las Mañanitas" in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico to verso. On vacation in Mexico, Foss sends his greetings to Renée and others in Buffalo. "Reneé dear - Here I am, faithfully - where you sent me. 2 flamingos follow me around. The gardens are lovely. Just what the doctor ordered. Wished you & Jessy were here. This 3 day period is my first 'vacation' in... oh - ever. I feel like Mahler in Death in Venice. Well - almost... " Light soiling and wear. 14. Autograph letter signed "Love Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 1 page, ca. 86 x 138 mm. No date. In black ink on a Mexican postcard with a reproduction of a primitive painting on Amate Paper from the State of Guerrero to verso. Foss sends his greetings from Mexico, where it is "more relaxed" than in "bJAi." He has lost his American credit card. "...Didn't see you enough in bJAi. Culpa mia no doubt. But what a crazy schedule. Never again 2 rehearsals & 2 programs on one day. It's more relaxed here. Well relaxed? Right now, no. I lost my American credit card - same old Lukas - I need a travel companion. O.K..?" Very light soiling and wear. 15. Autograph letter signed "L" and "Love Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 5 pp., ca. 149 x 115 mm. No date. In black marker and blue ink on stationery with Hebrew script to head and foot. With original autograph envelope with Levine's address at the Center for Creative and Performing Arts at the University of Buffalo to recto and Foss's Israeli return address to verso, postmarked [Jerusalem?] February 13, [19]73. Foss mentions several prominent musical personalities, including Spyros Sakkas, Julius Eastman, Morton Feldman, and Leopold Stokowski. Because he must unexpectedly conduct the Israel and Los Angeles Philharmonic, he asks Levine Packer to cancel some classes at the Manhattan School (of Music?) on his behalf. His frequent absences from Buffalo make him uneasy. "... Antonion [?] writes that he heard nothing from you. He wants Spyros Sakkas baritone badly. What about it? It would be hard on Julius E. to learn all that... Could you telephone Manhattan School where I should be teaching March 2nd? Tell them that this extension of my stay hurts me more than it hurts them, it is sort of a command performance (substitution for Stokovski etc. etc.) that I will of course make up for it... If they are upset, I could fly in just before Feldman recording... I think they are a bit upset about the avantgardness of my student composers concert, so they should be handled with kid gloves... Los Angeles Philharmonic suddenly wants me also, for early March. Seems that every time some one gets sick it is: 'call Lukas' - Better this way, than the other way around. Anyway - forgive me for bothering you with this Non center diplomatic assignment. It's really true: no one else can do it just right: express my unhappiness over the postponement, work on counter solutions, etc. etc... " Light wear. Upper left corner of first page slightly creased. Two letters on first page slightly smeared, not affecting legibility. 16. Autograph letter signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 2 pp., ca. 279 x 219 mm. No date. In blue ink on white paper. With the original autograph envelope with Levine's Buffalo address in blue ink, postmarked Jerusalem, July 16, [19]73. Levine must choose an Italian composition for the concert series of a certain "Signora Panni." Foss suggests a work by Luciano Berio. Ms. Panni would also like to program some of Foss's own music. At the letter's conclusion, he mentions Renée Levine's husband (?) Jesse, a noted violist. "... [Signora Panni] begs for an italian piece so it will fit in her series. Let's give it to her. You choose it: Berio or what ever is within our tour limitations, but not too slight a piece. It must not be a mere gesture. She also wants Foss music, otherwise she does not seem to care. Write her the program... Everybody here is eagerly anticipating Jesse's arrival on the scene. I built him up so that he's all set. Want to live in Jerusalem?... Love and kisses... " Minor creasing, especially at folds. 17. Autograph letter signed "Lukas" to Levine [Packer]. 1 page, ca. 305 x 178 mm. ]. In ink on a Pan Am air letter with integral address panel. Postmarked München [date illegible]. Foss wishes Levine at happy 27th birthday. Because he is on his way to Germany, she must accept some rather unpleasant calls, from none other than Barbara Kolb and Lamont Young, two noted American composers. He asks her several questions about musicians and performing forces, and warns her not to forget about French composer Iannis Xenakis. "... Arrived at Kennedy, checked in - passport expired. 'Sorry sir, you can't go.' Well here I am on the plane. I jumped it. Will I be let in to Germany?... Will I be let in to the USA next week? Will anyone miss me if I don't get back in, except Barbara Kolb whose daily telephone calls I have finally avoided by flying to Europe. Did she call you yet? She will. Get me off the hook - also with Lamont Young please. In both instances I felt comipelled to say: 'I am all for you' - but to you I say what's best for the center. Don't quote me, blame circumstances. 'Mr. Foss can only do so much...'... What are you doing about strings? Don't forget Xenakis. There, you are beginning to feel older... " Creased at folds; minor wear relatively to opening of the integral envelope.

        Artigue, André Paul - Nellie Melba.

      "L"Oracle"'Ets vervaardigd door André Paul Artigue. In de tijd geaquarelleerd. Uitgegeven in 1912 door Dietrich et Cie. te Brussel. Gesigneerd door de kunstenaar en genummerd 25/100. Afm. (prent) 51 x 33 cm. Artigue (1879 - 1956), zoon van een tekenleraar, had al op jonge leeftijd gevoel voor kunst. Hij wordt aangetrokken door het schilderen, maar zijn liefde gaat in eerste instantie naar de muziek. Hij was daartoe geïnspireerd door de sopraan Nellie Melba (een wereldster[!] in die tijd), die veel in Parijs optrad. Als bariton zingt Artigue in verschillende populaire opéras-comiques en hij zong solo in de fameuse Schola Cantorum te Parijs.Eerste tekenlessen kreeg hij van zijn vader, later volgde Artigue lessen bij Gustave Moreau aan de Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Zijn werk werd tentoongesteld te Parijs en in Noord Amerika. In 1919 keert hij Parijs de rug toe en trekt de provincie in. Hij vestigt zich uiteindelijk in 1921 in Chambery, waar hij succes heeft met zijn schilderingen van landschappen en dorpen. Vermoedelijk is Nellie Melba de mooie vrouw die in deze afbeelding het orakel om een raadgeving vraagt. Prijs: € 950,- (incl. lijst).

Baldwin, the gallant soldier, good neighbor and dear old friend of the author, St. Louis, Nov. 14th, 1912." Two-tone cloth and batik boards, 239 pp., frontispiece (portrait of the author), illustrated, plates, portraits, teg. A very scarce and little known privately printed western memoir, loaded with both vivid and authentic personal narrative, and evidence of impending senility. Hughes served under McCollock in the Civil War, after which he settled in Young county, Texas. He gives an account of his experiences as a rancher, with mention of such pioneers as King, Kennedy, and Goodnight, descriptions of hunting trips in the west, and general reminiscences of life in Texas in the 1880's. A very scarce work, not in Adams Herd, and evidently unseen by Howes as he lists it under "Cramp." Dornbusch 1042 says "Hughes served in the 1st Texas artillery and as a Colonel of the 16th Confederate states cavalry." Minor wear to head of spine and corners, else a very good, clean, tight copy.

        Elementary Principles of Economics

      1912 - FISHER, Irving. Elementary Principles of Economics. New York: Macmillan, (1912). Thick octavo, original red cloth. $2600.Definitive editionâ€"the first to be offered to the general publicâ€"of Fisher’s elementary treatise on the principles of economics.Developed with the idea of breaking down initial misconceptions about economics at the outset and then imparting fundamentals, Fisher's Elementary Principles of Economics was innovative its design. Intended to give a broad introduction to the both major and minor topics in economics, it covers everything from the most basic definitions such as "wealth" and "money," to the law of supply and demand, to the societal costs of wealth. Considered "the father of monetary economics" (Pressman, 91), "Irving Fisher was, in the opinion of many, the leading economic theorist in the United States during the first half of the 20th century" (ANB). Two experimental editions preceded this edition, beginning in 1910; they were released solely to students at Yale. Spine a bit toned. A fine copy, scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In full: "It sure is hunting my forgotten birthday! Let's see. I'll be 38. Gee! I feel old. But maybe its this damned languorous climate. I've been eating too much, also. There isn't any news. The sun shines, the winds blow, and time flies. I'll be home soon again. I have not been fishing yet. This matter of work begins to drag on me. If I don't work I'm unhappy. Yesterday I wrote some of the scenario of the play. I've somehow lost confidence since I read that play book. But things will come to a head soon. I'm glad for this past week. I seem to be my old self again. Aren't you glad? I'd appreciate a letter from you occasionally. You'll be mad when you see that all this fat [?] letter is not a love letter to you. With love to all, Doc." Superb letter mentioning his two loves--fishing and writing--addressed to his other love. Folds from mailing, still about Fine, with envelope [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        MANUSCRIT AUTOGRAPHE DE GEORGES NORMANDY INTITULE : LA GLOIRE DE JEAN LORRAIN.

      1912 - Georges NORMANDY [Jean LORRAIN] MANUSCRIT AUTOGRAPHE DE GEORGES NORMANDY INTITULE : LA GLOIRE DE JEAN LORRAIN. 13 feuillets 29 x 21 cm. Nombreuses corrections, ajouts par collages. Encre violette majoritairement (quelques passages à l'encre noire). Le premier feuillet porte en haut à gauche le tampon à l'encre rouge de l'adresse de Georges Normandy à Eaubonne. s.d. [1912] - inauguration du monument à la gloire de Jean Lorrain [fécamp]. "Artiste sincère, jusqu'à heurter de front tous les mensonges qui rendent possible les rapports sociaux, de son vivant Jean Lorrain n'eut pas de pire ennemi que lui-même. [.] Son oeuvre est si débordante de vie qu'elle a pu se défendre toute seule contre l'oubli. [.] Or, six ans après sa disparition, Jean Lorrain avait son monument en place publique. Jamais ses livres n'ont cessé d'être réédités. La plupart de ses inédits ont été accueillis avec faveur et les éditions de luxe se succèdent sans arrêt. [.] exte du discours prononcé à Fécamp le 28 juillet 1912 lors de l'inauguration du monument à la gloire de Jean Lorrain à Fécamp. Les discours des personnalité se succédèrent ce jour là. Georges Normandy fut le dernier à prendre la parole pour clore la cérémonie. Georges Normandy donne à la suite trois lettres inédites, toutes trois dans un genre différent. La première des trois lettres adressée à Jérome Doucet (Jean Lorrain qui vient de perdre un procès, las de Paris, où il a mené, depuis ses débuts, un train d'enfer, s'est fixé à Nice) ; La seconde lettre donnée par G. Normandy est adressée à une belle dame de ses amies (3 février 1904) ; enfin la troisième lettre reproduite est adressée à une dame titrée et millionnaire (qui avait l'ambition d'épouser Jean Lorrain . 17 mai 1906, à Nice). On joint en annexe quelques documents administratifs relatifs à l'érection du monument à la gloire de Jean Lorrain à Fécamp (délibération du conseil municipal de la ville en date du 22 octobre 1906), avec le détail du comité pour la mise en oeuvre de ce monument (2 pages dactylographiées). Une note de 2 pages dactylographiées de la commission de l'intérieur et des finances de la ville de Fécamp (26 novembre 1906). Très intéressant devis chiffré pour la construction du monument avec le détail des sommes et une note signée du statuaire Alphonse Saladin (petit manque de papier au bas du feuillet avec perte d'un mot). Etui moderne plein papier marbré, dos toilé noir, titrage or au dos (Ateliers Laurenchet - non signé). Parfait état. Très belle facture de l'ensemble. Georges Normandy (1882-1946), de son vrai nom Georges Charles Segaut, également natif de Fécamp, grand admirateur de l'auteur de Monsieur de Phocas, est celui qui a propagé l'oeuvre de Jean Lorrain et largement contribué à écrire son histoire voire sa "légende". ENSEMBLE UNIQUE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
