        The Brothers Karamazov

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1912. First American edition. One of the towering classics of Russian literature. First translated into English in the 20th century by Constance Garnett, as the first book in her series "The Novels of Fyodor Dostoevsky." Constance Garnett is responsible for introducing many works of Russian literature to English readers for the first time, including books by Tolstoy and Turgenev. "[her] translations read easily... her versions were in many cases pioneering versions."(Oxford Guide to Literature in English Translations). A quick search on Americana Exchange reveals a single copy of this first US edition (using the British sheets) sold by Swann in 2017 for $10,000. The British edition appears equally rare. Beautifully bound in full red polished morocco by Bayntun. Marbled end papers, all edges gilt, raised bands on the spine and gilt rules on the boards. A lovely copy of an uncommon book. One of the great works of world literature. Dealing with questions of belief and faith in a seemingly ambivalent world, "The Brothers Karamazov" has influenced countless writers and thinkers. Freud called it "the most magnificent novel ever written" and Nietzsche ironically said Dostoyevsky was "the only psychologist ... from whom I had something to learn; he ranks among the most beautiful strokes of fortune in my life." The book took over two years for Dostoyevsky to write - he died months after its publication. "What makes [you] read it too, is sheer breathless interest in the people and the drama... every man, woman, and child introduced in these 840 pages is human - convincingly and horribly human." (Contemporary New York Times Review.).

        Libro de los inventores del arte de marear, y de muchos trabajos que se passan enlas galeras. . Tocanse enel muy excellentes antiguedades, y avisos muy notables para los que navegan en galeras.Antwerp, Martin Nutius, [ca. 1545/46]. Small 8vo (13.5 x 10 cm). With Nutius's woodcut device on the title-page. Set in rotunda gothic type with a few words in a large roman. Blind-tooled brown goatskin (1920s?) in 16th-century style by Victor Arias (1856-1935) in Madrid, gold-tooled turn-ins.

      - Belg. typographica 1353(1 copy); Iberian Books 9931; Palau 110393; USTC 440510 (4 copies). Rare (first?) separately published edition of an early discourse on the art of sailing and navigation, in the original Spanish, first published as part of Libro llamado Menosprecio de Corte. The book discusses the invention and use of the galley, mariners of classical antiquity, the dangers of the sea, pirates, the sea and its properties, and of special interest a chapter on the barbaric language spoken in Spanish galleys: a primary source for their lost maritime dialects. Although it covers sailing from classical antiquity onward, most of the text focuses on Guevara's own era. He includes often humorous descriptions of the horrendous food aboard the galleys, and lists, with tongue in cheek, 58 "privileges" reserved for those who live a life at sea. Ultimately, sailing separates men from beasts, for beasts flee danger while men willingly sail into unknown waters. The present work was later translated into English, French and Italian, the first as A book of the invention of the art of navigation.With the bookplates of the famous collector Harrison D. Horblit (1912-1988) and Frank S. Streeter (1918-2006), an important collector of voyages of discovery, but also the son of the great Americana collector, Thomas W. Streeter. Trimmed close to the running heads, but with no loss, in very good condition and complete with the two final blanks. The binding shows a small tear as the head of the spine and a bit of wear at the extremities generally, but otherwise very good.

        The Prince and Betty

      Mills and Boon 1912 - One of the rarer titles .Very few collectible copies have turned up in the last 20 years .The Heinemann copy which was sold in 1998 is now being offered by Neil Pearson Rare Books and would be one of them and the late Charles Gould became the proud owner in 1999 of the Pacific Auctions copy inscribed to Wodehouses parents . The listing states spine lean and water staining to the cloth.There is a catalogue. I think this copy which is fine and could be graded as Mint is probably the best copy there is , mainly as a result of being held in the same family for at least 80 years and may go back further but they have no record There was a Mrs Byrom in both the US and the UK. Wodehouse was travelling regularly between the two, countries that is, but being the UK first I think it likely that the inscriptee was probably the latter .This copy has the catalogue at the back ,and the inscription is dated July 1912 , a wonderful item. Its hard to say whether the catalogue indicates a first issue but Mcilvaine would have been guided by the Heinemann copy which may not have had one .It could be that there were only so many catalogues and when they ran out the remainder were bound without it ,who knows .

        AN ACCOUNT OF THE BIRDS OF THE HUDDERSFIELD DISTRICT

      Huddersfield: Issued privately to subscribers only , 1912. nd. [1912-15]; Pp. [12], 103, [3]; portrait frontispiece plate of James Reid Mosley; 39 coloured plates [ "crayon-watercolour plates, a new hand-process"], 37 distribution maps coloured in pink. Original quarter red leather with red cloth boards; original leather worn and marked, but now expertly rebacked retaining as much of the original fabric as possible; very good and strong. Contents clean and tight with light reading wear, original red marbled end papers; the distribution map of the starling is missing but a duplicate of the Greenfinch erroneously bound in its place; the first plate of the rook with a small ink line and spot; a couple of old stains to the gutter edge of the frontispiece where previously repaired with tape, very short fore-edge tear to the same repaired with japanese tissue, a split to the lower gutter-edge of the title page also inconspicuously repaired, short tear to the lower margin of p. 42; presentation inscription dated 1923 to the verso of the front free end paper. A good to very good copy of this extremely rare and fabled regional ornithological guide. [Bibliographical note: the publication of this work, like all Mosley's works, was very much a private affair with a 'handmade' feel, each copy varying a little, nevertheless Mosley was breaking new ground - The Birds of The Huddersfield Area is believed to be the first book on the birds of a local area to include distribution maps. It is a very rare work and only a handfull of copies have been offered at auction over the last 50 years; no copy in the Fattorini collection.. First Edition. Hardcover. Good Plus. 8vo (14 x 23cm).

        Sonnets and Ballate of Guido Cavalcanti. With translations of them and an Introduction.

      London: Stephen Swift and Co., Ltd., 1912 - Octavo. Original streaky grey cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt, edges untrimmed. Faint toning to spine, very slight rubbing to the corners, toning to endpapers and some mild spotting to early leaves, but an excellent fresh copy. 32 pp publisher's advertisements at the rear. First UK edition, with the contemporary ownership inscription of Aida Borchgrevinck in red ink to the half-title. Aida Borchgrevink (née Ada Starr) was a Bloomsbury figure, a friend of E. M. Forster and R. C. Trevelyan, described by John Furness as "an ebullient, romantic woman" who "sang Wagner at the top of her voice while she drove". The UK edition was published about a week after the US edition by Small, Maynard & Co. in Boston, with some revisions to Pound's introduction and the translations. Pound's Cavalcanti is published with Italian and English printed in facing text throughout. The UK edition is scarce, since a large portion of the print run was destroyed by a fire at the binders. This is a lovely copy with a charming association. Gallup B4b. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Feeding Experiments Illustrating the Importance of Accessory Factors in Normal Dietaries.

      Cambridge University Press, London 1912 - In: Journal of Physiology, Vol. XLIV, Nos. 5 and 6, pp. 425-460. London: Cambridge University Press, 1912. 8vo (229 x 162 mm). Entire volume, 513, [25] pp. Bound in early 20th century beige library cloth, spine titled in black. Text generally clean with little yellowing, a few early leaves somewhat wrinkled (but unstained). Hopkin's paper with chipping of a few mm of upper corner well outside text area. Provenance: Springfield College, Babson Library (bookplate to front pastedown). Very good copy in the rare entire volume. ---- PMM 404; Garrison Morton 1048. FIRST EDITION of Hopkins' landmark paper. Hopkins was already convinced that certain 'accesory factors' were essential to the health and growth of animals, and on returning to work he discovered that rats who declined and died on what appeared adequate feeding throve when small quantities of milk were added to their diet. In 1912, in the paper cited, he made the pronouncement upon which all subsequent vitamin research is based: that 'accessory factors' are essential to nutrition. Entire journal volumes are rarely seen on the market. We can trace only one copy sold at auction in the past 20 years (Sotheby's sale N07732, 2001, lot 92, sold USD 10,200). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

        Autograph Letter Signed discussing two of his plays, with illustration, on printed address stationery, Devon, Nov. 22, 1960. Unpublished in the "Letters of Sean O'Casey."

      O'Casey refers to two of his little known plays, actors, the Abbey Theater and Lady Gregory. He writes to Lewis Funke, Esq. (1912-1992), drama editor, "The New York Times." O'Casey makes it clear at the outset and end of the letter that he is ill by drawing a sketch of himself lying on his back under a blanket, his feet sticking out, a pointed object hanging over his mouth. He writes under the self-portrait sketch, "And so to bed again," a fitting reference to the Diary of Samuel Pepys.The letter reads: "Dear Lewis, Writing this from the De Profundis of a bed - a damned "Communistic" virus infiltrated into me body politick, and laid me low.'Cooing of Doves' - at the time of its rejection, I told Gabriel Fallon, then a friend of mine and an Abbey [Abbey Theater] actor at the time, now a Director of the Abbey; and Barry Fitzgerald, another friend then & who is so still. Lady Gregory alone of the others remembered, and, when I went to Coole Park, she mentioned how happily the "Cooing of Doves" became welded into the heart of another play. It went in with but a few minor changes , but what puzzled me was why "Kathleen Listens In" [a lost early play of O'Casey] was preferred to it in the first instance; for then puzzlement was the one way of solving it, for I know very little then about Theater or anything else. I'm glad Phyllis was there to hear what I said about her. Next time she's with you, give her a kiss form me - a real affectionate one.My love to Mrs. Funke….as ever Sean….". Lewis Bernard Funke was a freelance writer, born in the Bronx in 1912. He worked for "The New York Times" as a sports writer from 1928-1944 when he became drama editor and assistant drama critic. He continued to work for The Times until 1973 as Drama critic and editor. The next seven years were spent as visiting professor School Theater, Florida State University, Tallahassee. During this same period and further to 1986, he was a public relations consultant for the Eugene O'Neill Memorial Theater Center. Sean O'Casey and Lewis Funke had a correspondence that lasted at least from 1955 through 1961.Sean O'Casey's first plays were performed at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin where he was born. In about 1926, due to his "penchant for argument," he was cast out of the Abbey and cast himself out of Ireland. In 1923 he submitted a play, "Cooing of Doves," to the Abbey and William Butler Yeats rejected it. It was later incorporated into "The Plough and The Stars," but it was never performed as a one-act play and was lost for 80 years, not coming to light again until 2005.Another one of O'Casey's lost plays was a one-act play entitled "Kathleen Listens In." Robert Caswell, a student at Trinity College, Dublin, found the lost manuscript in 1958. A letter from Robert H. Hethmon, assistant professor at University of Wisconsin, dated December 22, 1960, mentions the publication of "Kathleen Listens In" in "The Tulane Drama Review." Documentation in O'Casey's Papers at the National Library of Ireland notes that sometime in the second half of 1960, O'Casey met with Gabriel Fallon, the actor who proposed a book of O'Casey's early works, a book to be edited by Robert Hogan. It was published, in 1962, as "Feathers From the Green Crow: Sean O'Casey 1905-1925." The note in the Papers also comments on "Kathleen Listens In" as being "held by Fallon."The Abbey Theatre in Dublin was co-founded by the Irish dramatist, Lady Augusta Gregory and William Butler Yeats. Lady Gregory was a Director of the Abbey Theatre. She lived in Coole Park, County Galway where she entertained the likes of Yeats and George Bernard Shaw.Gabriel Fallon was an actor and friend of O'Casey's, even in 1960 based on evidence in The Papers. He also reviewed plays for the Evening Press in Dublin at this time.Barry Fitzgerald, born Will Shields, was also an actor. He, and his brother, Arthur Shields, were in the 1937 John Ford film of O'Casey's "The Plough and the Stars."O'Casey ends the letter on a personal note, referring to Funke's daughter, Phyllis, who, at the time of this letter was probably in high school as in 1964 she was enrolled at Columbia University, and also referring to Funke's wife.

George Sylvester Viereck (December 31, 1884 – March 18, 1962) was a German-American poet and writer. In 1923, Viereck published a popular-science book entitled Rejuvenation: How Steinach Makes People Young, which drew the attention of Sigmund Freud, who wrote Viereck asking if he would write a similar book about psychoanalysis. Viereck traveled to Vienna to interview Freud, and then went to Munich to interview Adolf Hitler. During the mid-1920s, Viereck went on several additional tours of Europe, interviewing Marshal Foch, Georges Clemenceau, George Bernard Shaw, Oswald Spengler, Benito Mussolini, Queen Elisabeth of the Belgians, Henry Ford, Albert Moll, Magnus Hirschfeld, and Albert Einstein.Viereck became close friends with Nikola Tesla. Tesla occasionally attended dinner parties held by Viereck and his wife. He dedicated his poem "Fragments of Olympian Gossip" to Viereck, a work in which Tesla ridiculed the scientific establishment of the day. Viereck also published a vampire novel, The House of the Vampire (1907), which is one of the first psychic vampire stories where a vampire feeds off more than just blood. (Wikipedia)

Juli 1894 in Voisins / Louveciennes) war ein französischer Schriftsteller. (...) Obwohl seine Gedichte viele Jahrzehnte zur obligatorischen Schullektüre gehörten, ist Leconte de Lisle heute kaum mehr bekannt. Für deutsche Leser von speziellem Interesse ist sein Gedicht Le Rêve du jaguar (deutsch 'Der Traum des Jaguars'), das Rainer Maria Rilke zu seinem Panther inspiriert haben könnte." (Wikipedia).Henri Noulhac (1866-1931), "un relieur consciencieux cherchant toujours à se perfectionner" (Fléty) aus Châteauroux, wo er auch lernte, zog 1890 nach Paris, wo er sich 1894 mit einer eigenen Werkstatt selbständig machte er spezialisierte sich auf Einbände "à la janséniste", wandte sich gegen 1900 bei seiner Deckelvergoldung fleuralen Motiven zu, ließ auch Spezialisten wie Giraldon und Chadel für sich entwerfen, und arbeitete ab 1914 beim Gestalten seiner Einbände mit seiner Tochter, die bei Adolphe Giraldon studiert hatte, zusammen.

Sein Frühwerk ist dem Jugendstil verpflichtet, 1894 stellt er im Wiener Kunstverein aus, schließt sich im selben Jahr in Paris den Neoimpressionisten an, und nimmt mit Mucha an der Weltausstellung 1900 teil. 1906 ließ er sich in Puteaux, eine Vorort von Paris, nieder. Kupka wurde vom ersten Futuristischen Manifest, das Le Figaro 1909 veröffentlichte, beeindruckt. Ab 1911 trifft er sich mit der Puteaux-Gruppe und wendet sich der Abstraktion zu, sein Werk wird zunehmend abstrakter und reflektiert seine Thesen zu Bewegung, Farbe und den Beziehungen zwischen Musik und Malerei. Um 1910 begann er, indem er Formen von Sir Isaac Newton und Hermann von Helmholtz aufgriff, eigene Farbkreise zu entwickeln. In den Jahren 1918-1920 lehrt Kupka als Professor an der Kunstakademie zu Prag. Zwischen 1931 und 1934 Mitglied bei "Abstraction-Création".
