      London: Constable and Company Ltd,, 1912. Chosen by Charlotte F. Shaw. Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt, brown endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in a modern green cloth solander box. Photo-engraved frontispiece of Auguste Rodin's bust of the author (from a photograph by Shaw). Extremities faintly rubbed, initial blank recto tanned; 1933 photograph with tiny nick to one corner. A bright copy in excellent condition. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy to the author's friend,Sydney Cockerell, signed by Shaw and inscribed by Charlotte Shaw on the half-title: "To Sydney Carlyle Cockerell from Charlotte F. Shaw". another inscription, with indistinct signature and dated "5th Nov. 1913" reads: "I witness these signatures - on this most pleasant evening". Sir Sydney Carlisle Cockerell (1867?-1962) was the director of the Fitzwilliam Museum from 1908 to 1937. Cockerell's innovative style as director left a lasting legacy on museology, his skillful use of light and space being quite revolutionary. In the late 1890s Cockerell had worked as William Morris's de facto personal secretary and was named by Morris as his literary executor. His brother was the bookbinder Douglas Cockerell, who also famously worked with Morris. Shaw and Cockerell appear as two of the three characters in Dame Felicitas Corrigan's The Nun, The Infidel, and the Superman. Laid in are two original photographs of Shaw at the Fitzwilliam Museum, taken in 1933 and 1935 and inscribed by Cockerell on the reverse. One of the photographs shows Shaw in front of the famous portrait which Augustus John painted in 1915 as part of a series and which Shaw bequeathed the museum. Also loosely inserted are Charlotte Shaw's compliments card and three newspaper clippings. A fine association.

        Vie de Mélanie bergère de la Salette écrite par elle-même en 1900 - Son enf EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Paris: Mercure de France, 1912. Fine. Mercure de France, Paris 1912, 12x19cm, broché. - First Edition. Precious autograph signed by the author for the painter Georges Rouault: "Nothing for his art - There is no caricature." Reinforced back with some gaps filled, a restored on the half-title page where FIG autograph dedication of the author tear. Our copy is presented in a gift box full black morocco, smooth spine, marbled paper plates and interior lamb. Rouault met Léon Bloy in 1904 through one of his works: "I am told that the painter Georges Rouault, a pupil of Gustave Moreau, a passion for me. Having found his master "Poor Woman" ... this book has bitten heart, incurably wounded "(Journal of L. Bloy, March 16, 1904). Thus is born a lasting friendship between the two artists. However when in 1905 Rouault exhibited at the Autumn "Real Poulot" Salon based on the novel of Bloy's reaction it is violent: "... This artist was believed able to paint seraphim appears not conceive that atrocious and avenging cartoons. Bourgeois infamy works in him a violent impact horror that his art seems mortally wounded. He wanted to make my characters Poulot "Poor Woman". At any price I want this illustration. It was to this that there is more tragic: two citizens, male and female, complete: candid, peaceful, merciful and wise to put the scum of the scare the horses mouth constellations. He made two assassins small suburb. "None better than Raissa Maritain knew not describe complex friendship that unites the young painter and the old writer, analyzing both" the underlying reason for their dissent "citing a letter Bloy Rouault 1907:" You are attracted exclusively by the ugly. "As their" admiration "she explains as" the living faith of the one and the other, (...) elevation and the rigor of their conscience artist How many times "." - Written it - in the years that followed, have we not seen Rouault in Bloy, standing, leaning against the wall, a slight smile on her closed lips, looking into the distance, apparently impassive face, but a pallor that would be accentuated when the issue of modern painting was discussed. Rouault pale, but kept through a heroic silence. And still, despite the determined opposition on the same subject of his art, he remained faithful to Léon Bloy. It seemed he had the same look in Bloy accusations that tormented him what he held most dear - not for submission to any discussion, but to test them against the force of instinct that the led into the unknown and was overcome any obstacle. "(" At the dawn of new friendships "in New Polling October 1941) This is the same Léon Bloy, respectful but steadfastly critical of his young friend, that he dedicate this portrait of a saint, this elegy beauty that will never be able to perceive in the work of Rouault. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Léon Bloy au peintre Georges Rouault: "Rien pour son art - Il n'y a pas de caricature". Dos renforcé comportant quelques manques comblés, une déchirure restaurée sur la page de faux-titre où figure l'envoi. Notre exemplaire est présenté dans un coffret en plein maroquin noir, dos lisse, plats de papier marbré et intérieur en agneau. Rouault fait la connaissance de Léon Bloy en 1904 par l'intermédiaire d'une de ses oeuvres: « On m'apprend que le peintre Georges Rouault, élève de Gustave Moreau, s'est passionné pour moi. Ayant trouvé chez son maître "La Femme pauvre"..., ce livre l'a mordu au coeur, blessé incurablement » (Journal de L. Bloy, 16 mars 1904). Naît alors une indéfectible amitié entre les deux artistes. Cependant lorsqu'en 1905 Rouault expose au Salon d'Automne "Monsieur et Madame Poulot" inspiré du roman de Bloy, la réaction de celui-ci est violente: « ... Cet artiste qu'on croyait capable de peindre des séraphins, semble ne plus concevoir que d'atroces et vengeresses caricatures. L'infamie bourgeoise opère en lui une si violente répercussion d'horreur que son art paraît blessé à mort. Il a voulu faire mes Poulot personnages de "La Femme Pauvre". À aucun prix je ne veux de cette illustration. Il s'agissait de faire ce qu'il y a de plus tragique : deux bourgeois, mâle et femelle, complets : candides, pacifiques, miséricordieux et sages à mettre l'écume de la peur à la bouche des chevaux des constellations. Il a fait deux assassins de petite banlieue. » Nul mieux que Raïssa Maritain ne sut décrire l'amitié complexe qui unit le jeune peintre et le vieil écrivain, analysant à la fois "la raison profonde de leur dissentiment" en citant une lettre de Bloy à Rouault de 1907 : « Vous êtes attiré par le laid exclusivement. " comme leur "admiration" qu'elle explique par "la vive foi de l'un et de l'autre, (...) l'élévation et la rigueur de leur conscience d'artistes". "Combien de fois - écrit-elle - dans les années qui ont suivi, n'avons-nous pas vu Rouault chez Bloy, debout, appuyé contre le mur, un léger sourire sur ses lèvres closes, le regard au loin, le visage apparemment impassible, mais d'une pâleur qui allait s'accentuant lorsque la question de la peinture moderne était abordée. Rouault pâlissait, mais gardait jusqu'au bout un silence héroïque. Et toujours, malgré cette irréductible opposition sur la question même de son art, il est resté fidèle à Léon Bloy. On eût dit qu'il venait chercher chez Bloy les accusations mêmes qui tourmentaient en lui ce qu'il avait de plus cher, - non pour les soumettre à une discussion quelconque, mais pour éprouver contre elles la force de l'instinct qui l'entraînait vers l'inconnu et qui devait triompher de tout obstacle." ("A l'aube de nouvelles amitiés" in La Nouvelle Relève, octobre 1941)C'est le même Léon Bloy, respectueux mais immuablement critique à l'égard de son jeune ami, qui lui dédicace ce portrait d'une sainte, cette élégie de la beauté qu'il ne saura jamais percevoir dans l'oeuvre de Rouault.

        ALBUM OF 185 VERNACULAR PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN BY A YOUNG JAPANESE BUSINESSMAN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, MASSACHUSETTS, AND MAINLY IN JAPAN, 1912-1913

      1912 - This album contains 185 photographs tipped to 102 pages of heavy black stock, captioned and dated in white ink. Leaf size is 7" x 10"; the average photograph size is 4" x 3.25". The spine of the album was deteriorated, so the covers have been removed and placed into clear sleeves as have all the leaves, now housed in a three-ring binder. Roughly the first third of the book is devoted to photographs taken in New England; the middle third contains photographs taken on a quick tour of Europe; and the final third comprises pictures taken in Asia-a few in South Manchuria and Korea and the rest in Japan, mostly near Kochi on Shikoku, many including the photographer's family members. In New England, we see a few pictures taken in "Pepple", New Hampshire as well as in Massachusetts: Boston Public Gardens; Lexington patriotic parade; Nantucket; Jamaica Pond; Gloucester; and Lincoln. While he is in New England, the photographer has many Japanese visitors including: Mr. Shirae (pp.1 & 9); Miss Iku Saegusa, (p.4); "Mr. Tsuboi of Tokyo" (p. 4); "Mr. K. Inouye of Osaka Public Library" and "Mr. Mori" (p. 7,), both seen on the beach at Nantucket, and the latter, Mr. Mori, reappearing on pp. 19 and 20 (with a Mr. Hisada) and later, in Japan on p. 92; and "Mr. Nashima on 'S.S. Franconia', Boston" (p. 26). All are wearing Western dress. His friends/hosts(?) are American. Of particular interest in this New England section of the album are photographs of "Our Magnolia Store". Magnolia is a small village in Gloucester, MA, and on p. 19, there is a photo of "Mr. Mori and I / Our Magnolia Store 'to be'/ May 26, 1912," showing the two men in front of an empty storefront, A photo on page 20 (same date) shows "Magnolia Store Just Built,/Mr. Mori [and] Mr. Hisada" [a clue to the photographer's name?], depicting the same imposing, Spanish-style building, with its large arched windows. Page 22 offers a shot of the photographer himself "in the Magnolia Store" (Sept. 13, 1912), where various household decorative items are displayed: lamps, dishware, etc. On p. 31, we see "Miss Brackett, sales manager of our Magnolia store, Sept. 13, 1912". Other photographs show New York's Penn Station, Central Park, SS Saxonia, &c. ~~ The European part of this album begins on p. 37 with the title " In England 1913" and including 10 pages of photographs of tourist destinations in London and environs, two of which (at Hampton Court) include a "Mr. Shimizu". On p. 44, the label is "In France 1913" (8 pages of sights, mostly in Paris and Versailles). Next comes "In Brussels, Belgium, 1913" (4 pages) followed by "In Berlin, Germany, 1913" (3 pages). ~~ The Asian portion of the journey starts on p. 60 in "South Manchuria, 1913", and these 2 ½ pages include photos of "Friends on Trans-Siberian Train, Tetsurei, Manchuria, Feb. 28 1913" (eight men, mostly Asian) and a photograph taken in Korea "Soul [sic] Keijyo, Korea (Nandaiman)": a street scene. By page 63, the photographer is "In Japan, 1913", where he remains for the rest of the album. He opens with a shot of "the staff of Yamanakas/ Main House/Osaka, March 26, 1913" (6 men and a young boy, most in kimonos, plus himself). Two photos in Kyoto follow (same date), and a scene of many people crossing a bridge, labeled "Yoshino River, Yamato, April 19, 1913". Many of the remaining photographs were taken in and around Kochi, including Tosa, Nahari, Kagami-gawa, and the beach at Katsurahama. In these pictures, Japanese relatives are in traditional dress. An early photo on p. 66 is labeled "Ah! My sister! Ushi-o-ye, near Kochi, March 29, 1913" and shows a tombstone. This is accompanied by a second photo showing a Japanese couple with a boy (his nephew Sho-chan?) labeled "Memory of our visit to the sister's grave, Ushioye". Other photos depict "father, Sister and Shigeki" (p. 78), "Father and Mother?under the pine tree" (p. 81), "Father, Mother, Sister and Shigeki" (p. 82), "Sisters" ( p. 68), showing two girls, "Shidzu-ka (a toddler) ( [Attributes: First Edition]

Fascinating clutch of letters from Leonard West discussing the production and early sales of The Natural Trout Fly and Its Imitation, now recognized as one of the classic works of pre-war English angling literature, with information on the deluxe edition containing hand-tied flies. The recipient, R.B. Marston, author of Walton and the Earlier Angler Authors and the 1901 Supplement to the Bibliotheca Piscatoria, was the influential editor of the Fishing Gazette for many years.- The first letter (3 pp.) is dated 14 August 1912, and begins, "Herewith I have the pleasure in enclosing review copy of my book 'The Natural Trout Fly & Its Imitation' & hope you will find the volume worthy of a favorable review . I think the printers deserve a good word for the way they have turned out the plates ." (Docketed with a note in Marston's hand "See my note in FG Aug. 24 1912 RBM.")- The second letter, dated 23 August, thanks Marston for a "very handsome" Note in the Fishing Gazette (see clipping inserted in the book) and discusses other early notices: "The 'Scotsman' gives me a good word, shot but quite O.K. The Sporting & Dramatic 'have given instructions for it to be well reviewed & request permission to reproduce one of the plates' That for an outsider seems going it pretty strong - does it not? . I have unloaded 100 up to now & sent for more." West also details progress on the edition de luxe "My leisure at present is occupied in dressing flies & trying to get others up to concert pitch . I have booked 19 E. de luxe"- The third letter (2 pp.), dated 21 October, notes that West is sending Marston "the edition de luxe of my book & hope you will like the get up & also the flies therein. The demand has been much greater than the supply so there will be little difficulty in disposing of a copy if desired at a premium. Other copies should all be sent out in the next fortnight . The ordinary edition is quietly going out all the time & hosts of appreciative letters are received not only from English customers but from France & America, also." (Docketed see F.G. note Oct. 26/12).- the fourth letter (4 pp.), dated 12 December 1912, discusses sales of the book: "Sales are moving all the time, lowest number sent off in any week being 10 & the average being 31.76 per week. I do no know if a "proper" publisher would consider this satisfactory but possibly he might not talk to his customers in the blunt way I do to some of mine!" West also discusses two flies, Orange Partridge and Snipe & Purple: "but what is a snipe & purple? It is over thirty years since old Joe Moses, a well known North country catcher of fish shewed me how to make it . but not dressed as now sold, but thusly [details & sketch follow] keep it thin both in body thorax & legs." West adds a note at the top "P.S. What about the Hon. D. Fearing? - his copy - of the Ed. de luxe"With a copy of the printed book (Marston's Occasional Note, "Send Your Money!" from the Fishing Gazette for 24 August 1912, clipped and tipped in to front pastedown).Choice group of letters with substantial content and an important association. Green buckram portfolio. Letters generally fine. Book: original olive cloth, a trifle worn, spine faded, else fine Pen and ink on paper. 15 pp. total. 1 vols. 12mo

Housed in a blue cloth slipcase.William Andrew ("Willy") Pogany (born Vilmos Andreas Pogány) (August 1882 – 30 July 1955) was a prolific Hungarian illustrator of children's and other books. Pogany's best known works consist of illustrations of classic myths and legends done in the Art Nouveau style. He also worked as an art director on several Hollywood films, including Fashions of 1934 and Dames.The publication of Pogány's Lohengrin was the final act in his trilogy of masterworks focused on Wagner's Germanic tales, and one of the quintet that is considered his finest work. Pogány clearly approached the commission to illustrate Lohengrin as an opportunity to improve and extend techniques that he had developed through his preceding work, particularly The Rubáiyat of Omar Khayyám, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Tannhäuser and Parsifal. the other four books that immortalized his career as an illustrator. That commitment to ongoing innovation resulted in an incredible suite of illustrations, including color lithographs, monotone and marginal illustrations and the delightful tipped-in color plates (produced with a four-color process) included in Parsifal. Themes of medieval chivalry, erotic love and moral tests are illustrated in a lavish fashion by Pogány with an outstanding use of iconography, form and color.

There is also a pencil drawing of an Arab man and a dog which has "5 minute sketch - Jack Hassall" on the verso.

        Taft looks forward to the upcoming election of 1912 and "? the recent victory for constitutional government ? I am very hopeful of the result in November, but whatever happens we have fought a good fight for the country?s sake already and have won.?

      Washington, June 26, 1912. 7" x 8.75". "Autograph Letter Signed, ?Wm H. Taft? as President, 1page, 7"" x 8.75"" on White House letterhead, Washington, June 26, 1912 to ?Dear Mr. Glaser? regretting his inability ?... to be present at the Ratification Banquet ..."" Light soiling, usual folds, else very good condition. Taft writes in full: ""I deeply regret my inability to be present at the Ratification Banquet on Saturday Evening next. It would be a great pleasure to rejoice with you and my many friends over the recent victory for constitutional government that was won at Chicago. I am very hopeful of the result in November, but whatever happens we have fought a good fight for the country?s sake already and have won.? Only days before Taft wrote to Glaser, the Republican National Convention had nominated him to run for a second term as President. Taft?s victory in Chicago was marred by the defection of Theodore Roosevelt, who challenged Taft for the nomination. Roosevelt had come to the convention holding the majority of delegates chosen in the primaries, but Taft managed to secure most of the uncommitted delegates to secure the Republican nod. In protest, Roosevelt, bolted from the party to run as the independent ?Bull Moose.? In the ensuing general election, Taft and Roosevelt split the Republican vote allowing Woodrow Wilson?s victory in November. Taft was a champion of the Sixteenth Amendment which granted Congress the right to enact a federal income tax: hence his reference to a ?Ratification Banquet."" Taft proposed the amendment on June 16, 1909 in an address to Congress in which he requested passage of a 2% federal income tax on corporations, together with the amendment that would give it constitutional legitimacy. The amendment, which was characterized by its opponents as an attack on states' rights, took nearly four years to pass. At the time of Taft?s writing, only 33 states had approved the amendment, and 3 were still needed to secure ratification. Ratification came on February 3, 1913, when Delaware approved the measure. Including this letter only 7 ALsS of Taft as President have appeared at public auction over the last 40 years, and only 4 of those were accomplished on a single page. This letter last sold individually at Sotheby's in 1977."
