        La théories du rayonnement et les quanta.

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 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.

        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).

        Über das Geistige in der Kunst. Insbesondere in der Malerei. Mit acht Tafeln und zehn Originalholzschnitten.

      R. Piper & Co.,, München, 1912 - München, R. Piper & Co., 1912. 104 + 2 S. OBrosch. EA. Mit acht Tafeln, drei Tabellen sowie den zehn in den Text gedruckten Holzschnitten. - Ebd. fachmännisch restauriert, leicht feuchtigkeitsrandig, V. etw. fleckig, Gbrsp. - Kandinsky, (1866 - 1944), studierte in Moskau Jura und Volkswirtschaft und befaßte sich außerdem mit Ethnographie. Die ihm nach Promotion und Assistentenzeit an der Juristischen Fakultät in Moskau offenstehende Universitätskarriere schlug er nicht ein, sondern ging 1896 zum Kunststudium nach München. Sein Zugang zur Kunst blieb wissenschaftlich geprägt. Systematisch schrieb er Beobachtungen zur Farbenwirkung nieder im Hinblick auf eine Theorie von objektiver Gültigkeit. Nach kurzer Ausbildungszeit in der Kunstschule Anton Azbès und an der Akademie bei Franz Stuck unterrichtete K. in der "Phalanx" selbst, u.a. Gabriele Münter. Mit ihr unternahm er Reisen nach Holland, Tunesien und Italien und verbrachte das Jahr 1906/07 in Sèvres bei Paris. Seit 1908 ließen sich beide wieder in München nieder und malten während der Sommermonate gemeinsam mit Alexej Jawlensky und Marianne von Werefkin in Murnau (Oberbayern) sowie mit Franz Marc in Sindelsdorf. Die Jahre bis 1914 waren von kunstpolitischem Engagement Kandinskys geprägt, der Künstler auf internationaler Ebene miteinander in Verbindung bringen wollte: Er leitete 1909 die "Neue Künstlervereinigung München", gab mit Marc 1912 den Almanach Der Blaue Reiter heraus und organisierte zwei Ausstellungen der "Redaktion des Blauen Reiter". Er verfaßte theoretische Schriften wie sein Buch "Über das Geistige in der Kunst" (1911), dessen kulturkritischer Charakter den Nerv der Zeit traf, die als Antwort auf vernichtende Kritik entstandenen autobiographischen Rückblicke (1913), ferner den Gedichtband Klänge (1913) sowie Bühnenkompositionen. .

        Amizade, peça original em 3 actos. Representada pela primeira fez por intermédio da Sociedade de Amadores Dramaticos, no teatro do Club Estefânia, em 23 de março de 1912.

      Lisbon, Arnaldo Bordalo, 1912. - 8°, original printed wrappers (oblong stamp stating "Preço Esc. 12$50" on front wrapper; printed price of 300 reis on rear wrapper scored; small defect at head of spine). Mostly unopened. In very good condition. 44 pp., (2 ll.). *** FIRST EDITION of Sá-Carneiro's first separately published work (he had contributed poems, stories, and other short pieces to a school newspaper earlier), and the only drama by him published during his lifetime. It was written in collaboration with his friend from school, Tomás Cabreira, who committed suicide at age 16, before the play was printed. Sá-Carneiro was a devoté of the theater, and founded a group of drama-lovers (the Sociedade de Amadores Dramaticos referred to on the title page?), for which he wrote and translated plays while still in school. Of these, @O Vencido was performed in 1905 and @Irmãos in 1913, but the manuscripts for both were lost; another, @Alma, was not published until 1982. @Amizade was excluded from Sá-Carneiro's works as edited by his close friend Fernando Pessoa. In the same year as @Amizade appeared, Sá-Carneiro also published a collection of short stories, @Princípio. In the Lisbon, Biblioteca Nacional catalogue of Sá-Carneiro's works @Amizade is cited before @Princípio, but which appeared first is not stated outright (p. 66).Mário Sá-Carneiro (1890-1916) was a major figure in the Modernist movement in Portugal and a contributor to @Orpheu. He committed suicide in Paris.*** Rebello, @100 anos de teatro portugues p. 121.

I, pàg. 509):"La Revista de Catalunya, que surt per primer cop el 3 d'abril de 1912, utilitza un títol prestigiós per a un intent que no és encara definitiu, tot i que les mateixes mans dirigents, en reprendre'l, sabran trobar, dotze anys més tard la fórmula perfecta. És un quadern de setze pàgines a dues columnes, del format 233x162 mm, que es presenta com a setmanal i que, en el prospecte inicial, addueix: "No hi ha avui a Catalunya una veritable revista a la moderna. No hi ha una revista que sigui un ample i complet resum de la vida complexa de la pàtria nostra, i que, alhora, informi el públic català del moviment d'idees i de fets del món contemporani. Doncs aquesta revista que aquí no existeix, nosaltres intentem fer-la amb la nostra Revista de Catalunya." I afegeix que els redactors es proposen dues coses: "Fer-ne uns arxius de la vida catalana i un port català d'importació de les idees i dels fets exteriors". La Revista de Catalunya era dirigida per Antoni Rovira i VIrgili, i entre els redactors figuraven Claudi Ametlla, Alexandre Plana, R. Noguer i Comet, Ignasi Ribera i Rovira, Màrius Aguilar, i, com a col laboradors assidus, Carles Soldevila, Gabriel Alomar, Jaume Pahissa, etcètera. Tot i les seves ambicions i l'equip brillant que les defensava, la Revista de Catalunya no tingué gaire durada. El darrer número publicata fou el 13, el 26 de juny de 1912.

        Theorie der wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung.

      Leipzig: Duncker & Humblot,, 1912. Octavo (217 x 136 mm). Contemporary dark grey half cloth by Jarchow of Hamburg (with his ticket), brown calf label, marbled sides, speckled edges. Stamp on title page of the "Seminar für Nationalökonomie Hamburg" and another stating "Eingetragen in die Kataloge" [recorded in the catalogues], contemporary note reading "2/5/1914". Old library label on spine, a number of contemporary pencilled marginal annotations and underlinings (in German). A very good copy. First edition, scarce, of the first statement of what was to become known as the "Schumpeterian system". In this work Schumpeter "replaced Marx's greedy, bloodsucking capitalist by the dynamic innovating entrepreneur as the linchpin of the capitalist system, responsible not just for technical progress but the very existence of a positive rate of profit on capital. Distinguishing between 'inventions' and 'innovations', he stressed the fact that scientific and technical inventions amount to nothing unless they are adopted, which calls for as much daring and imagination as the original act of discovery by the scientist or engineer. Furthermore, the 'innovations' that count for economic progress consist of much more than the new machines that capture popular attention: they take the form of new products, new sources of supply, new forms of industrial and financial organisation just as much as of new methods of production. The entrepreneur is frequently also the capitalist; nevertheless, in principle there is a world of difference between doing things in a new way and providing the capital required to finance a new venture. The capitalist earns 'interest', but the entrepreneur earns 'profit' and without the dynamic change created by the entrepreneur, the rate of profit would soon fall to zero... His theory of the entrepreneur has ever since been the starting point for every subsequent discussion of entrepreneurship" (Blaug).

An excellent resource. * WHO WAS JOSIAH CONDER: Josiah Conder, the father of Japanese architecture of the many foreign architects invited to Japan in the last quarter of the 19th century, Conder was the man who made the biggest impact on the Japanese. A graduate of the Royal Institute of British Architects, where he was a pupil of William Burgess, Conder was awarded the institute's prestigious Soane Prize in 1876, recognition of his talent and potential. In 1877, aged 25, Conder arrived in Japan, where he served concurrently as professor of architecture at the Imperial College of Engineering, and as consultant to the Building and Repair Division of the Ministry of Public Works. He was to remain in Japan until his death in 1920, devoting his life to modernizing Japan's architectural technology. . Between 1878 and 1907, Conder designed over 50 major Western-style buildings in Tokyo. These included the Tokyo Imperial Museum in Ueno (1881), the largest brick building in Japan of its day, the Kaitakushi Bussan Urisabakijo [1881], a marketplace for selling produce from Hokkaido, and the Rokumeikan state reception hall (1883), a symbol of the Meiji government's Westernizing aspirations. Conder built in a variety of styles, ranging from Gothic to Renaissance to Tudor to Moorish, contributing to the progressive, eclectic appearance of Meiji period architecture while suggesting he was struggling to find a suitable idiom for Japan. For example, the Tokyo Imperial Museum showed Islamic Indian influence, the Kaitakushi building Victorian Gothic tendencies, and the Rokumeikan English Renaissance tastes. . For the Meiji administration, however, which sought a more mainstream European style, Conder's approach proved a little too wide-ranging, and in due course he set up his own firm, although he continued to advise the government. Conder went into private practice in 1888. His commissions included the first Mitsubishi building in the redbrick Marunouchi district of Tokyo [1894], a residence in Yushima for Hisaya Iwasaki [1896] and the Mitsui Club in Mita, used by the Mitsui family for entertaining [1913]. He paid full attention to interiors as well as exteriors, so that these residences were perfectly coordinated, and all his projects bore his distinctive touch. As the Imperial College of Engineering's chief instructor for the Engineering Science Department, Conder organized lessons and delivered lectures. His courses covered everything from ancient Egyptian through Indian to contemporary European architecture, and focused on construction techniques using wood, brick and stone. . Conder also gave demonstrations on site, such as at the Tokyo Imperial Museum, ensuring that he not only taught theory but also gave his students a solid practical training as well. . Many of Condor's pupils went on to become pillars of the Japanese architectural establishment. Among his first group of graduates were Tatsuno Kingo, who designed Tokyo Station, and Toukuma Katayama, responsible for the Akasaka Detached Palace [State Guest House]. * Condor was also a patron of Japanese arts and artists. His high watermark work on Japanese gardens stands today as the pinnacle and a classic on the subject. All of his several titles remain superb reference works on the subjects he loved and devoted his life to. The contribution from his Japanese wife was major. . He encouraged K. Ogawa a famous photographer even at that time to contribute the stunning photos for this book. Please inquire with us for other albums and individual photos by this photographer. *** THE EDITION: The 1912 revised 2 volume edition is the best of the two editions. *** CONDITION: Contents is remarkable clean, and with the tissue guards.

With previous owner's inscription to upper right corner of title: "Meinem lieben Lehrer Herr Paul [?Sigwarth] Weihnachten Moritz [?]Goldberg, München 1922." Page 107 (between parts 2 and 3) blank, as issued, except for pagination. Binding slightly worn and rubbed; wrappers slightly browned and stained, with some repairs. Small tear to lower blank margin of first page of music. . First Edition, first issue, one of only 500 copies printed. Rufer (Engl.) pp. 78-79. Ringer p. 311. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 37-38. The piano-vocal score, prepared by Alban Berg, first appeared in 1913 (U.E. 3696). An engraved full score in large format, including a number of corrections, was published in 1920 (U.E. 6300). First performed in Vienna on February 23, 1913, with Franz Schreker conducting the Vienna Philharmonic Choir and the Wiener Konzertvereinsorches Fritz Soot (1878-1965) was a German tenor. After singing a minor part at the world premiere of Strauss's Elektra (1909), he emerged as a leading singer in the 1910s. He took major parts in operas then new, including Mephistopheles in Busoni's Doktor Faust and the Tambourmajor in Berg's Wozzeck. He performed Schoenberg as early as 1913 (Vossische Zeitung, Berlin, November 17, 1913), and was considered for the part of Waldemar at the world premiere of the Gurrelieder (Schoenberg's letter to Soot of November 18, 1913). It is not known whether he sang the part on a later occasion. Richard Kraus (1902-1978), a German conductor, spent his entire career in his native country; in 1927, he took his first appointment in Kassel. "In March 1900 Schoenberg began setting Jens Peter Jacobsen’s Gurre-Lieder as a song cycle for voice and piano, for entry in a competition... However, Schoenberg soon saw wider possibilities in the text... He therefore decided to connect the songs he had already composed (those in the first two parts of the finished work) with symphonic interludes and set the whole poem as a vast cantata employing several soloists and a huge chorus and orchestra. The work depicts the love of King Waldemar and Tove under the Tristanesque imminence of death, Waldemar’s blasphemous defiance of God after Tove’s death, the nightly ride at the head of a ghostly retinue to which the king’s restless spirit is subsequently condemned, and its dismissal by the summer wind at the approach of day. Schoenberg encompassed all this in a series of tableaux of extraordinary magnificence." O. W. Neighbour in Grove online The Danish poet Jens Peter Jacobsen (1847-1885) wrote his Gurresange in 1871. The German translation is by Robert Franz Arnold (1872-1938).

        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).

        THE LOST WORLD

      1912. Being an account of the recent amazing adventures of Professor George E. Challenger... London New York Toronto: Hodder and Stoughton, n.d. [1912]. Original dark blue cloth decorated in gilt and white. First Edition of Doyle's first Professor Challenger science fiction tale. The exploring party ventures to a lost plateau deep in the South American jungle, where dinosaurs still reign. Both the movie "Jurassic Park" and the television series "The Lost World" owe much to this book. Subsequently, Doyle wrote two more Professor Challenger novels -- THE POISON BELT (1913) and THE LAND OF MIST (1926) -- as well as two shorter Challenger tales that appeared in THE MARACOT DEEP (1929).~This was one of Doyle's favorite books; he based the character and appearance of Professor Challenger partly upon Professor Rutherford (whom he had known at Edinburgh University) and partly upon himself. In fact, the frontispiece photograph of the explorers includes Doyle himself, disguised with bushy beard and eyebrows as Challenger -- looking rather like a Neanderthal, actually. Also, in addition to various illustrations that were copied from the 1905 book EXTINCT ANIMALS (showing dinosaurs in their surroundings), there are two photographs of the "lost plateau" that Doyle himself faked, as with the frontispiece.~This is a very good-plus copy of a book quite difficult to find in desirable condition. Typically the white border on the front cover is largely worn away, but on this copy it is still mostly present (and the white lettering is largely unaffected). The spine gilt is bright, and there is essentially none of the usual foxing on the leaves within. THE LOST WORLD is often regarded as Doyle science fiction at its best. Green & Gibson A37a.

A graduate of the Royal Institute of British Architects, where he was a pupil of William Burgess, Conder was awarded the institute's prestigious Soane Prize in 1876, recognition of his talent and potential. In 1877, aged 25, Conder arrived in Japan, where he served concurrently as professor of architecture at the Imperial College of Engineering, and as consultant to the Building and Repair Division of the Ministry of Public Works. He was to remain in Japan until his death in 1920, devoting his life to modernizing Japan's architectural technology. . Between 1878 and 1907, Conder designed over 50 major Western-style buildings in Tokyo. These included the Tokyo Imperial Museum in Ueno (1881), the largest brick building in Japan of its day, the Kaitakushi Bussan Urisabakijo [1881], a marketplace for selling produce from Hokkaido, and the Rokumeikan state reception hall (1883), a symbol of the Meiji government's Westernizing aspirations. Conder built in a variety of styles, ranging from Gothic to Renaissance to Tudor to Moorish, contributing to the progressive, eclectic appearance of Meiji period architecture while suggesting he was struggling to find a suitable idiom for Japan. For example, the Tokyo Imperial Museum showed Islamic Indian influence, the Kaitakushi building Victorian Gothic tendencies, and the Rokumeikan English Renaissance tastes. . For the Meiji administration, however, which sought a more mainstream European style, Conder's approach proved a little too wide-ranging, and in due course he set up his own firm, although he continued to advise the government. Conder went into private practice in 1888. His commissions included the first Mitsubishi building in the redbrick Marunouchi district of Tokyo [1894], a residence in Yushima for Hisaya Iwasaki [1896] and the Mitsui Club in Mita, used by the Mitsui family for entertaining [1913]. He paid full attention to interiors as well as exteriors, so that these residences were perfectly coordinated, and all his projects bore his distinctive touch. As the Imperial College of Engineering's chief instructor for the Engineering Science Department, Conder organized lessons and delivered lectures. His courses covered everything from ancient Egyptian through Indian to contemporary European architecture, and focused on construction techniques using wood, brick and stone. . Conder also gave demonstrations on site, such as at the Tokyo Imperial Museum, ensuring that he not only taught theory but also gave his students a solid practical training as well. . Many of Condor's pupils went on to become pillars of the Japanese architectural establishment. Among his first group of graduates were Tatsuno Kingo, who designed Tokyo Station, and Toukuma Katayama, responsible for the Akasaka Detached Palace [State Guest House]. * Condor was also a patron of Japanese arts and artists. His high watermark work on Japanese gardens stands today as the pinnacle and a classic on the subject. All of his several titles remain superb reference works on the subjects he loved and devoted his life to. The contribution from his Japanese wife was major. . He encouraged K. Ogawa a famous photographer even at that time to contribute the stunning photos for this book.

Exemplar Nummer XVIII der Vorzugsausgabe von XXV Exemplaren, mit Druckvermerk in Band 1: \"Von diesem Buche wurden XXV numerierte Luxusexemplare abgezogen, dieses ist die Nummer XVIII\". - Aus dem Inhalt: Einleitung - Das Leben (Umrisslinien) - Die Persönlichkeit - Der praktisch Tätige - Der Naturforscher - Der Dichter - Der Weise - Anhang - Register der Eigennamen - Register der Hauptbegriffe - 2 Tafeln. - Erstausgabe, EA, erste Auflage in guter Erhaltung (ganz leicht stockfleckig stockfleckig; oberer hinterer Außenfalz oben an Band II mit feinem Einriss 3 cm, sonst sehr gut). - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag (\"Häubchen\") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können.\" Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14\" - Luxusausgabe, Leder-Vorzugsausgabe, Ledereinband, Lederausgabe, Luxuseinband, Liebhabereinband, deutsche Buchbinderkunst / Kunstbuchbinderei im 20.Jahrhundert, Bibliophilie, Einbandkunst, deutsche Literatur im 18.

Yeats. 1 of 300 copies printed. "Susan Langstaff Mitchell (1866 – 1926) was an Irish writer and poet, known for her satirical verse .In 1900 she travelled to London for treatment of a hearing problem associated with tuberculosis and stayed with John B. Yeats and his family .After her return to Dublin she worked as a journalist and became assistant editor of the Irish Homestead, under George Russell. Thus began a close friendship and professional relationship that would last until her death. She contributed essays, reviews, drama notes and poems, many pseudonymously. Her poems first appeared in the holiday feature of the Homestead each year, entitled ‘A Celtic Christmas.’ Some of her lyrics were contained in New Songs (1904), a collection edited by Russell which also contained pieces by Padraic Colum and Alice Milligan .She became acquainted with William Butler Yeats, Padraic Colum, George Moore and others .She published her first book of poems, Aids to the Immortality of Certain Persons in Ireland, in 1908. Its most successful piece was a parody of Rudyard Kipling's "Recessional" (Kipling, as an apologist for Empire, was fair game for Irish nationalists), entitled ‘Ode to the British Empire.’ This book was re-issued in an enlarged edition in 1913, followed by The Living Chalice. From 1923 she was sub-editor at the Irish Statesman, again under George Russell. In the last two and a half years of her life she wrote over two hundred pieces for this publication" (WIkipedia, 2015). The Cuala press was started by the Yeats sisters and operated from Churchtown.
