        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to his wife

      29 Jan. 1912, Long Key, FL - A one-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED as "Doc" to his wife "Dolly" with fine content on Florida East Coast Hotel Co./Long Key Fishing Camp stationery with envelope. 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]

        Casey at The Bat

      Chicago: A.C. McClurg and Co., 1912 Illustrated by Dan Sayre Groesbeck. First hardcover edition. Publisher's green paper boards, with an illustration of a bat wrapped in black ribbon to the front board, lettered in gold. Near fine, with very light rubbing to the extremities, very minor staining to the bottom corners of the pages, former owner's inscription to the title page, otherwise bright and clean interior. Overall, a very fresh and pleasing copy, free of any repairs or restoration. Casey at the Bat is an iconic baseball poem that was first published in the San Francisco Daily Examiner on June 3, 1888, and popularized by comedic actor DeWolf Hopper later in the same year. Specifically, the poem describes the fictional "Mudville Nine" team and their star player, the "Mighty Casey." Notably, both Alfred H. Spink's The National Game (1910) and A.G. Spalding's America's National Game (1911), which Encyclopædia Britannica calls the first attempts at writing a standard history of baseball, cite Casey at the Bat as "the best baseball poem ever written.". Illus. by Groesbeck, Dan Sayre. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

Ink shelf mark on front wrapper. Provenance: all four prints from the library of Rudolph Magnus (with his name stamps on front wrappers) and the Pharmacologisch Instituut, Rijks Universiteit Utrecht (with stamps on front wrappers). All four offprints housed in a brown cloth backed custom folder with ex-libris of H F. Norman M D on inner cover. ---- Norman 1668, 1669, 1670, 1672 (these copies). FIRST EDITION, offprint issues. Rudolf Magnus (1873-1927) was a German physiologist who is best known for his studies of physiology of posture (see Garrison-M. 661 and 663.1). Pavlov received the 1904 Nobel Prize in physiology / medicine for his studies of the physiology of digestion, which revealed the part that the nervous system plays in controlling digestive secretions. Most of Pavlov's later scientific career was devoted to the physiology of the brain and of higher nervous activity. "In conducting his researches, Pavlov introduced the method of long-term or continuous experimentation, which - in contrast with traditional vivisectional methods - allowed him to study the operation of physiological processes in healthy animals under normal conditions over extended periods of time. His investigations of the nervous system's role in digestion led him to explore the phenomenon of "psychic" stimulation; i.e., salivary secretion prompted by the sight or smell of food rather than by direct contact. In Pavlov's hands this became a powerful tool for investigating the functions of the cerebral cortex and the physiology of behavior. The most famous outcome of his researches is, of course, the artificial conditioned reflex, in which physiological processes such as salivation are arbitrarily associated with stimuli such as the ringing of a bell." (Magill, The Nobel Prize Winners: Physiology or Medicine, pp 61-68). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Die Diluvia le Vorzeit Deutschlands.

      Stuttgart: E. Schweizerbartsche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1912. First edition.. Small tear repaired to the rear bottom edge of plain dust jacket, cardboard slipcase show edge wear and some light foxing, the fine binding, text and plates are very bright and clean with no signs of use; a fine (as new) copy.. Pp. xiii, (1), 283; 133 text-figures (maps, line-drawings and charts), 1 large folding table, 1 very large folding faunal chart + 47 full page plates, each with a descriptive text-leaf, loose in folding cloth-backed box at rear of volume (plates are fine halftone drawings of artifacts and mobile art, black-and-white photographs of skeletal remains and cave sites, maps - some plates are foldout). One-quarter white vellum over heavy brown cloth boards, spine with brown morocco title/author label lettered in gilt, the front cloth cover is also boldly lettered in gilt, housed in tan plain dust jacket, in heavy cardboard slipcase, titled in black on the front cover, folio (15 x 12 3/4 inches). This epic work "The Diluvial Prehistory of Germany," published in 1912, is the first major book on Paleolithic research in Germany. The book presents an ingenious synthesis of primary data from Schmidt's own fieldwork and the state of research of his time. Even 103 years after its publication, the key aspects of Schmidt's cultural stratigraphic sequence remain valid today. He also succeeded at contextualizing his research from southwestern Germany within a broader European setting and established many explicit correlations between the well-studied French and German records of human biological and cultural Evolution. Schmidt's research is outstandingly modern in that it consciously addressed archaeological questions within the context of ecological and paleoanthropological research in an interdisciplinary approach followed today [modified from Bolus and Conrad (2012), in Mitteilungen der Gesellschaft für Urgeschichte, no. 21]. This classic volume is very rare. No ownership marks and no signs of use.

        The Tale of Mr. Tod

      London: Frederick Warne, 1912. Potter, Beatrix. 12mo. 94pp. First edition. First or second printing (they were identical), with date on title-page. Contains fifteen color plates and numerous black & white vignettes. The story follows the villains of previous Peter Rabbit books, Mr. Tod the fox and Tommy Brock the badger. By this time, Beatrix Potter was finding it difficult to continue producing short stories with so many color illustrations, so The Tale of Mr. Tod represents a departure from the previous Peter Rabbit books. There are fewer color plates and a corresponding increase in small black & white illustrations. Rather than beginning a completely new series, this and subsequent books were advertised as "The Peter Rabbit Books, Series II, New Style" and bound a bit more elaborately, with stamped decorations and an inset color plate to the front cover. Gift inscription to recto of frontispiece, some very light foxing to textblock fore-edge and first few leaves, minor bump to lower corners, spine sunned, else a fine copy in publisher's gray paper-covered boards. Housed in custom half morocco drop-back case. (Linder, pp. 210-12, 429).

        Il Bacio - Lionello Balestrieri.

      Op het water - de kusEts met aquatint gedrukt in kleur, van de hand van Lionello Balestrieri. Vervaardigd ca. 1912. Met potlood genummerd "65"'en gesigneerd "L Balestrieri"'. Afm 44 x 64 cm.Lionello Balestrieri (1872-1958) was van eenvoudige komaf. Hij genoot z"n opleiding aan het Istituto di Belle Arti in Rome en Napels en werd onderwezen door Domenico Morelli en Gioacchino Toma. In 1897 verhuisde hij naar Parijs waar hij in eerste instantie hij z"n brood verdiende als illustrator.Op de Wereldtentoonstelling van 1900 won Balestrieri een gouden medaille en werd benoemd tot voorzitter van de Vereniging van Italiaanse kunstenaars in Parijs.In 1911 ging hij naar Bretagne, waar hij in contact kwam met werk van de postimpressionistische Pont-Aven kunstenaars (waaronder Gaugin), die hem sterk beïnvloedden. Zijn palet wordt lichter van kleur en hij wordt aangetrokken door de overheersende stijl van deze periode, de Art Nouveau. In die tijd moet ook deze Il Bacio tot stand zijn gekomen.Na de eerste wereldoorlog volgden Balestrieri thema"s het Futurisme en nam hij in 1926 met die stroming deel aan de Biënnale van Venetië.Prijs: € 1.350,- (incl. lijst).

        PHOTO ALBUM OF A JOURNEY TO BATAVIA, JAVA & RANGOON, BURMA IN 1912.

      Yokohama 1912. Japanese lacquered accordion folded album,. 20 x 15.5 cm., lacks one of two ivory faces, else corners a. bit rubbed, contains 47 b.w. photos each ca. 14 x 8 cm.,some. a bit larger/smaller, all clean excellent images. OBSCURE !. FASCINATING EARLY PHOTO ALBUM OF TRAVEL IN JAVA & RANGOON The album has a penned dedication and presentation inside the front cover, reading: "To Cousin Percy, with love from Alfred & Thirza In Memory of Happy Days spent in Japan. Yokohama March 2nd, 1912." * This lovely album documents a journey by steam ship to Batavia, Java, then on to Rangoon, Burma. The photographs are mostly about postcard size, and are very clean and sharp images. * The photographic development process left a silver tinge to these photographs when slightly bent, it becomes more obvious. There is no fading whatsoever, each image is strong, clear and with good contrast. The photographs are mostly about postcard size, and are very clean and sharp images. * A good number of the photographs have pencil notations on the verso, telling where and who is depicted in the photograph. * The story unfolds with the inscription, and then shows Mr. & Mrs. MacNarma sitting in the garden of the Netherlands Hotel, [Batavia] Java, with one more view of others sitting in the garden. A view of some Batavia government building, with may people sitting inside the foyer in the shade and others in a horse-drawn carriage. Mr. K. Childes poses wit two native young boys in the botanical gardens, and one more of Mr. Childs and another foreigner both in pitch helmets posing. More photos relaxing in the Hotel Netherlands garden, P.C. Mockett, Mr. Mrs. Foggart, Mr. Child as well. The visitors buy tropical fruits from a native vendor in the Botanical Garden, and all pose for the camera. Batavia street scene shows a native watering the street with dual sprinkling cans before L. Dobbelmann a Dutch-owned store, with English adverts. * The group now boards a tram and begins a journey to other places around Java. The giant lily-pad pond, natives dancing in a festival, views along the railroad tracks of a native house and farm in Jami, coconut trees, native carts, and then a train stop. There are several photos with "PCM" on the verso, meaning P.C. Mockett, whom was possibly the creator of this album, at least he seems to be a central figure. * Tropical plants, a boy holding a huge umbrella, the steam train engine, natives in elaborate dress, local markets, Arrival at a large port, most likely Batavia preparing to board a ship for onward journey to Burma, and Rangoon. Shows 2 photos of the group milling about preparing to embark. * Ship-board photo of the group relaxing on the deck. Arrival at Rangoon, Burma and the memorial "Travellers Palm" tree photograph ! Native bullock cart, ship-board poses, arrival at what appears to be Thailand and its shrines. Mansion Hotel , Rangoon with their dancing girls show, Rangoon park, Rangoon Street scene and British-buildings, natives, and the Rangoon Great Pagoda. * CONDITION: The album is constructed of very firm stiff board, with four corners cut into the card to allow the insertion of photographs. The hinges are very solid and the whole is solid and not loose or otherwise shaken. A lovely example. * THE PHOTOGRAPHS: The photographs were placed into the album by its former owner or photographer, we have removed each to read the captions for cataloging and replaced them in the exact order they were found. Some seem to be out of place in that they are mixed up according to place and not all in a logical order. Regardless they remain "as is" for any future researcher to make more sense of them. Some have no captions at all. There are other captions below some of the photos in pencil on the album pages, perhaps place there later, we do not know. There remains a few pages on both sides of the double-sided album that have no photographs, this is near the end. * By and large a nice example of foreigners taking a nice journey to the Exotic South East Asian area and documenting their visit with photographic memories. * Albums of this period with such excellent photographic images so well preserved are unusual, and seldom found on the market. *** Color scans can be sent by email.

        L'HABITATION MODERNE.

      Dourdan: 1912. Dourdan:, 1912 - 1914; 1921 - 1922.. Dourdan: 1912 - 1914; 1921 - 1922.. First, second and fourth years of this rare French architectural monthly highlighting the current taste in bourgeois French domestic architecture in the periods immediately before and after the First world War. The first two years, included here, do not appear in OCLC, CCFR or in any other online catalogue we have been able to consult. The Bibliothèque Nationale only holds a broken run beginning in 1921 and ending in 1937. The BNF catalogue gives 1918 as the date when publication began, but this is clearly an error based on deduction from the fact that each year contained 48 text pages and the volume for 1921 begins with page number 145. In fact, the periodical began publication in April 1912 and continued in monthly parts until it was suspended for 6 years after the outbreak of the First World War. The work appeared in monthly parts with each issue consisting, initially, of four printed illustrated pages of text and 4 loose plates. Each issue is devoted primarily to a single building. The pre-war issues focus on contemporary bourgeois houses, mostly characterised as "villas" or, in a few cases, as maisons de campagne, along with an occasional hôtel particulier. A colour pochoir "aquarelle" plate for each issue will generally show an elevation of the featured building while the remaining 3 monochrome plates give a variety of architectural details. The name of architects, owners and locations of the properties are provided. The post-war issues, however, switch noticeably away from the emphasis on private dwellings and also include larger and more institutional structures intended for a variety of uses such as hospitals, social housing, agricultural buildings, a war memorial and a few more modest homes.The number of printed pages doubles in 1921 and the variety of subject matter also expands to include presentation of more than one building and notes on a variety of practical subjects including recent legislation of interest to architects and builders. On the front wrapper of the first issue the name of the architect, A. Gelbert, is given as director and editor-in-chief. None of the individual articles are signed, so we presume that Gelbert was the author as well as the editor. All of the illustrations from the pre-war issues, including the colour plates, are also signed by him. Most of the illustrations in the post-war issues are unsigned, although there are a few that were drawn and signed by the architect. However, Gelbert's name continues to appear in the masthead illustration, which was redrawn monthly, so we conclude that the publication remained under his direction. Although a few colour plates can be found for sale online, complete volumes are very rare. OCLC and CCFR show only the holding at BNF, which starts with volume 4 (1921). We find no copies of the two pre-war volumes anywhere online. Les Périodiques D'Architecure XVIIIe-XXe Siècle, page 268 (incorrectly showing publication as beginning in 1918).l Folio (32.5 x 25 cm); 1-96, 145-238 pp. heavily illustrated + 144 plates (including 36 in colour pochoir) numbered 1-96, 145-192. Loose as issued. Blue printed paper wrapper for issue number one, torn and split apart at spine, is loosely laid in. Preserved within a crude cloth-backed folder with cloth ties.

        For Eldredge's The beginnings of San Francisco, the 47 California-themed printing blocks used to produce the volume’s illustrations.

      San Francisco: Pr. John C. Rankin Company (New York) 37 half-tone plates (on copper), 10 zinc cuts, all on their wood blocks; plus 3 additional plates on copper and another zinc cut, similarly mounted.. 1912 A full set of the printer's blocks prepared of the illustrations for Zoeth Skinner Eldredge's The Beginnings of San Francisco (1912), being 37 photographic half-tones on copper and 10 zinc cuts, all on wood blocks, ranging generally in size from approximately 2.5" square to 14" square, with oblong maps measuring up to 20" across. A number of the half-tones were done after drawings by Walter Francis, a California artist and illustrator who worked for the San Francisco Chronicle; a few blocks offer images of photographs, some identified as taken by W.C. Mendenhall of the U.S. Geological Survey or Captain D.D. Gaillard of the Boundary Commission; other images are said to be from paintings and a daguerrotype held privately, with another being the facsimile of a document in the John Carter Brown Library; and, indeed, some are simply "after" images in other books (e.g., The Annals of San Francisco and "Bartlett's Narrative"). The images include a dozen California maps and plans; photographic views of the Colorado Desert and an artistic sketch of "the Trail on the Gila"; portraits of prominent early Californians; several "military moments" and a plan of the Presidio in 1820; plus, notably, scenic and historic "views" including renderings of "the Palo Alto," the ports of Monterey and San Diego, Yerba Buena, and a number of street and bay scenes depicting San Francisco proper. Eldredge was a New York–born banker and amateur historian of California whose Beginnings of San Francisco, though possibly self-published, is listed in Cowan & Cowan and described there as "of great historical value." In addition to the 47 images/blocks from that work present here, we offer four others that seem to be "related" but which we have not identified beyond establishing that they do not seem to be from the same author's History of California (1915). We must wonder, were they images prepared for the Beginnings and not used? The additional zinc-cut image of a document signed by Gaspar de Portola and two of the three additional half-tones on copper (Portola sighting San Francisco bay and the Spaniards marching to Monterey) were found as online images without clear attribution as to their physical sources; and the last, a western scene not identified, has not yet been "matched" at all. Most blocks from the Beginnings are still in or with => wrappers showing the images printed from them, as would have been convenient for the printers — these marked (as the backs of the blocks themselves sometimes are) identifying the images and/or showing that the work was completed. (The additional blocks are unwrapped and unmarked.) In sum, this => complete array of the blocks used for printing a substantial and well-regarded Titanic-era book looks like something that was put on a printing house shelf one afternoon in 1912 at the end of an ordinary project for the pressmen and simply stayed there. Seeing it in on its present PRB&M shelf, coherent and unmessed-with, is like walking up to that shelf just a little more than 100 years later. => Seeing it on its present PRB&M shelf, coherent and unmessed-with more than 100 years later, is like walking up to that shelf through one of time's “wrinkles.” The paper wrappers present are variously just fine or age-toned or browned, chipped, torn along folds. ALL the blocks are in good condition; this is not a sort of thing easily damaged!

        La théories du rayonnement et les quanta.

      Gauthier-Villars, Paris 1912 - The First Solvay Conference Langevin, Paul (1872-1946) & Maurice de Broglie (1875-1960), editors. La théories du rayonnement et les quanta. Rapports et discussions. . . . 8vo. [8], 461 [3]pp. Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1912. 240 x 152 mm. Quarter morocco ca. 1912, light wear and rubbing, inner front hinge cracked. Light toning but very good. Signature on flyleaf dated 1917 of American chemist Earl Frederick Farnau. From the library of Russian-American physicist Boris Podolsky (1896-1966). First Edition. The proceedings of the first international Solvay Conference on physics, devoted to radiation theory and the quanta. The purpose of the conference was twofold: "First, there was the need to examine whether classical theories (molecular-kinetic theory and electrodynamics) could, in some undiscovered ways, provide an explanation of the problem of black-body radiation and of the specific heat of polyatomic substances at low temperatures; secondly, to consider phenomena in which the theory of quanta could be successfully used" (Mehra, The Solvay Conferences on Physics, p. 14; see also pp. 13-72, containing summaries of all the papers delivered). Among the participants were Max Planck, who gave an exposition of the arguments that had led him to the discovery of the quantum of action; Heike Kamerlingh Onnes, who reported on the discovery of superconductivity of certain metals at extremely low temperatures; Arnold Sommerfeld, who discussed the production of x-rays by high speed electrons; and Albert Einstein, who summarized many aspects of the quantum concept, particularly in regard to his explanation of the anomalies of specific heats at low temperatures. This copy bears the signature of Earl F. Farnau, Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati; it was later owned by Russian-American physicist Boris Podolsky (1896-1966), best known for his collaboration with Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen on the famous "EPR" (Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen) paper ("Can quantum-mechanical description of physical reality be considered complete?," 1935) challenging the assumption that quantum mechanics could provide a complete description of physical reality. Podolsky joined the faculty of the University of Cincinnati in 1935. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        PONTS DE PARIS

      An octavo, bound in original olive green cloth with gilt spine title and pictorial pastedown on the upper cover.  Jessie King did the illustrations for this book by taking her watercolors and paper with her early in the morning to capture the play of light on the Seine.  It was first published by Gowan and Gray in 1911, with the French language edition following in 1912.  There were only 1,000 copies of the book printed, far fewer with the French text than the English.  Eighteen color plates by King capture her affection for the city she and E.A. Taylor loved nearly as much as their village home of Kirkcudbright.  There is some light browning and foxing, else a fine copy of a scarce title.  The color cover illustration, different than the one used on the English edition, was lacking and has been supplied in facsimile.  The book beautifully captures the artist's unique combination of technical skill and romantic whimsy. (White, 92, describing only a French text edition in paper wrappers).
