        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).

Frontispiece with tissue guard and 24 plates from sketches and photographs, two facsimiles of Arabic documents to the text, folding map to rear.

First edition, a "fascinating contemporary account" of the Turco-Italian War of 1911-12 (Motadel, Islam and European Empires, p. 17). George Abbott, a British journalist, spent four months among the Turco-Arab forces fighting the Italian occupation of Cyrenaica, modern-day Libya. The resistance was led on the Arab side by Sufi shaykh Ahmad al-Sharif al-Sanusi, with Mustafa Kemal distinguishing himself on the Ottoman at the Battle of Tobruk. An attractive example of the original cloth.

      [St. Louis: Privately printed, 1912]., 1912. First edition. First edition. 8vo. The front fly leaf contains a full-page, inked presentation inscription to "General Frank D. 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.

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]

        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]

      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.

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]
