        Hrad smrti. (Barevnými d?evoryty vyzdobil Josef Váchal). [The city of death. With color woodcuts by Josef Váchal]

      Král. Vinohrady (Prague): self-published, 1912. Quarto (25 x 18 cm). Contemporary fine binding by Ant. Stelibský; wrappers preserved; 51 pp. With a front wrapper design, decorations, and eleven original color woodcuts by Váchal (frontispiece, title, nine plates with tissue guards, and the original woodcut illustration to front wrapper). Signed by Deml on the half title. About very good. First edition of this expressionistic "found" prose poem by Jakub Deml (1878-1961), one of the most bizarre and enigmatic figures of Czech interwar literature. A Catholic priest from rural Moravia, Deml constantly appeared to rebel against the church, maintained suspiciously close ties to various female muses, and was involved in numerous public scandals, while producing an enormous body of written work, often published in small bibliophile editions. He is now considered an important representative of Czech modernist literature and writers such as Vit?zslav Nezval considered Deml's highly associative texts to be related to his own surrealist experiments. He also maintained close contacts to contemporary artists, such as Franti?ek Bílek. Deml's friendship with the painter and printmaker Váchal-an almost equally complex and difficult person-was short and intense, but it resulted in the present early collaboration. Váchal's ominous black and yellow woodcuts complement and complete Deml's brooding, difficult dream-inspired prose poem about life after death. In a striking artistic morocco binding that manifests its own interpretation of the "castle of death" image. One of 500 copies printed. Sá?ka 183. KVK, OCLC show copies at British Library, University of Chicago, Harvard, Toronto, and Yale only.

Original printed wrappers; [4], 1-190, 191-382, 383-597, [1], and [1], 1-77, [2] pp. Three photogravure plates, two with protective tissue guards.

Complete catalog, in four volumes, of the collection built by the Moscow merchant Aleksei Bakhrushin (1853-1904) over three decades. Bakhrushin's library contained over 25.000 volumes, largely on Russian history, art, and literature, including reference works and Rossica in foreign languages, which the catalog lists alphabetically. The fourth installment adds foreign-language books collected by Bakhrushin, also mainly on topics relating to Russia, as well as on library science and art history. During Bakhrushin's life, the library was used widely by scholars and fellow collectors, as documented by his guestbook, which contains entries by Pavel Efremov, Ivan Zabelin, D. V. Ul'ianinskii and many others. In 1904, after his death, the collection was bequeathed to the Russian Historical Museum located just off Red Square in Moscow, along with Bakhrushin's extensive holdings in paintings, decorative arts, antiques, posters, and other printed ephemera. In 1938, the greater part of the books was transferred to the State Public Historical Library. The publication of the catalogs was financed by the collector's widow, Anna S. Bakhrushina. With three photogravures showing Bakhrushin and the collection at his home in Vorontsovo Pole, Moscow (vol. I) and a frontis showing the new Bakhrushin room at the Historical Museum, which housed the collection after his death.

        The pituitary body and its disorders clinical states produced by disorders of the hypophysis cerebri. An amplification of the Harvey Lecture for December, 1910.

      Philadelphia, J.B. Lippincott, 1912, 8, X, 341 pp., 1 farb. lith. Taf., 319 Abb., orig. Leinenband. First clinical monograph on the hypophysis!FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE - Dr. Cushing's first separately published monograph!"Cushing, outstanding neurological surgeon of the present century, added much to our knowledge of the pituitary body and its disorders. The above work includes a description of his own method of operating on the pituitary. He assumed that in diabetes insipidus the pituitary was involved." The physiology of the hypophysis, its diseases, and their treatment, were early and life-long interests of Cushing. His studies of this subject, as of most anything he touched, were exhaustive, and the textual matter, case histories, and illustrations in this pioneer work have scarcely been improved upon to this day. This book is an amplification of the Harvey Lecture of December, 1910.""The pituitary monograph is based upon a detailed clinical study of fifty cases of endocrine disturbance. All of the things for which Cushing stood in clinical medicine are exemplified in the remarkable case histories of his fifty subjects." "The book is profusely illustrated (319 figures), and since changes in facial contours constituted an important part of the story he wished to present, photographs of many of his cases are included. Those showing the development of acromegaly in individual cases have become classic and have subsequently been reproduced in many textbooks of endocrinology, physiology, and clinical medicine." "The monograph stands as a milestone in American medicine, and more particularly in the history of endocrinology, for it introduced a clinical concept of endocrine function which did much to clarify..." One cannot dismiss the pituitary monograph without brief mention of Cushing's surgical contribution for, until his work appeared, there were few in the surgical world who had the courage to tackle a pituitary operation. After Cushing had shown the way the operation became something of a routine affair which many soon began to undertake. In Cushing's first case the pituitary was approached through the frontal sinuses but such an approach has two disavantages - the first being that the frontal sinuses are often infected and meningitis may follow when the cranial cavity is entered through them the other, that it leaves a cyclopean scar, distasteful especially to women. Cushing found that the pituitary could also be approached satisfactorily by elevating the upper lip and approaching the sphenoidal bone by a submucous dissection of the nasal mucous membrane. This largely removed the hazard of infection (1912 !) and it had the great advantage of leaving no visible scar. In current parlance this operation has come to be known as Cushing's transsphenoidal approach. In cases of marked intracranial extension of the pituitary tumor a more formidable surgical procedure is necessitated, involving a large bone flap similar to that employed for any other brain tumor."HC 1 Heirs of Hippocrates No. 1160 Garrison & Morton No. 1161,3896,4893.1 Waller 2252 Courville No. 524 Fulton pp.321-323 Walker 493

        PYRAMUS & THISBE ein TRAUERSPIL AUS SOMMERNACHTSTRAUM v. SHAKESPEARE

      Darmstadt: G. v. Koch, 1912. FIRST EDITION. Very good. Small octavo, 143 x 106 mm. 14 leaves printed recto only (the first is blank), a single gathering sewn into plum wraps, illustrated with two hand-colored red hearts pierced by a sword. Some minor sunning to covers, interior fine. COLOPHON: D v. KSV gedruckt al sechstes opus der presse des vereins zur ausfuhrung G. v. Koch'scher kinderspiele in 200 exemplaren, davon 25 auf buttenpapier. Printed by children, for children, at "probably the strangest private press of all time" (Horodisch). This is extremely rare play by the zoologist, botanist, artist, and professional uncle Gottlieb von Koch, created under the tutelage of typographer Christian Kleukens, at the home of Koch and his wife Elise in Darmstadt, where they ran a kind of daycare retreat for artistic children. "Koch was a peculiar, unforgettable phenomenon: his beard, the long-drooping hair, the broad, unfashionable sloppy hat, and the wide cloak, gave him a strange look. Adults who did not know him might have viewed him with suspicion, but the children greeted him with radiant eyes when they met him in the yard, on his daily journey to his house on Viktoriastrasse, where he and his wife Elise made their house into a paradise for children. Under the their guidance, the children were allowed to print with a small printing press, under the guidance of Professor Christian Heinrich Kleukens and 'Uncle Gottlieb.' Children were also encouraged in other arts, including drawing and even photography" (Scheer). The play - the sixth production of the D v. KSV press according to the colophon - is an adaptation by von Koch of the Mechanicals' production of Pyramus and Thisbe in A Midsummer Night's Dream, and was printed entirely in a sans-serif grotesk (quite unusual in German educational printing of the period. The Jugendstil title-page illustration was drawn by Koch himself. We know of no other press whose entire output was printed by children. Not located in OCLC, KVK, etc. No digital surrogate located online. Not found in any standard bibliography. An uncatalogued copy exists at the Folger Shakespeare Library. REFERENCES: Horodisch, A.

        Golf from The Times A Reprint, revised and re-arranged, of some Articles on Golf, by The Times Special Contributor.

      London: The Times 1912 - First Edition, 8vo., Advert + pp. 141, original green cloth lettered in gilt. Darwin, the grandson of the great evolutionist Charles, was a gifted writer almost single-handedly responsible for creating golf literature as a genre. No mean player himself, he reached the semi-finals of the British Amateur Championship in 1909 and 1921. Anthologies of his writings for The Times and Country Life over nearly half a century have become important landmarks for golfing book collectors, as have his full-length publications, notably the seminal Golf Courses of the British Isles (Duckworth, 1910). This anonymous collection of ten articles – ‘revised’ and from their original newspaper form - covers such subjects as courses, great matches, modern developments, and golfing psychology and humour. Certainly they justify the words stamped to the rear cover: ‘The Times treats the game of Golf in a more comprehensive way than any other newspaper’. ONE OF DARWIN’S EARLIEST, AND ONE OF HIS RAREST, PUBLICATIONS. “The toughest find among Darwin anthologies, but an important one as all 10 essays are unique to this volume” (Daniel Wexler). “This was Darwin’s first book and is as charming as his last” (Joseph Murdoch). CONDITION: Binding a little bumped at extremities and upper cover a fraction bowed. Gilt largely unfaded. Small tear to fore edge of Preface. Light foxing to first few leaves; generally good. SIZE: 215 x 130mm, 8½ x 5 ins. REF: D&M 14040. Murdoch Golf Library AN 348, p. 73. Wexler ‘The Golfer’s Library’ p. 69. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Premiers paysages (Les leçons de choses du petit coloriste)

      1912 - 20 pp. Paris, Henri Laurens, 1912, in-4, 20 pp, cartonnage éditeur illustré en couleurs, dos toilé rouge, cahiers agrafés, Album de coloriage réalisé par Maurice Denis, réunissant 14 sujets tirés en deux épreuves : l'une, coloriée au pochoir, devant servir de modèle pour la pose des coloris de la seconde, tirée en noir. La première illustration, celle du titre, ainsi que la toute dernière, sont données en couleurs sur les plats du cartonnage. Cet exemplaire a été en partie utilisé par un apprenti coloriste, qui a posé l'aquarelle sur 7 sujets, dont celui du titre, avec plus ou moins de talent. Maurice Denis réalisa ces dessins à la demande de Laurens, qui avait lancé cette collections d'albums de coloriage afin d'initier les enfants à l'art. L'artiste, père d'une famille nombreuse, prit notamment pour modèles ses enfants, parmi lesquels sa fille Bernadette, reconnaissable à ses nattes roulées en coquilles, représentée en couverture et au titre en train de dessiner la maison du gardien.

Signature stamp of the artist's signature in the lower right corner of the work, and signature stamp of the workshop at the back.

Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant-garde artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With Émile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893, Louis Anquetin continues to explore new opportunities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, after a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias pictorial that will line the general art movement, and take away from his friends. Dazzled by the baroque art and its creative force, so he thinks his childhood friends were involved in a pathway leading to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" which is embodied in the re-remember the lessons of Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more conventional, he advocated a return to business by offering to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art in accordance with the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin turns prolific with its many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression" compulsory foundation of all arts plastics. Working voluntarily countdown of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his obstinacy and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely closed the way to the great Western tradition. You can admire his works in many prestigious museums such as the Musée d'Orsay or the Louvre in Paris, San Francisco and Detroit, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the National Gallery and the Tate London, etc.. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        Prison memoirs of An Anarchist

      New York: Mother Earth Publishing Association 1912 - Original olive green cloth. frontis portrait of Berkman"At the time of the Homestead Strike." Gift inscription from Berman to C.V. Cook to the front end paper. In ink, states that this was part of Home Library at Home Hall. This is Berkman’s account of his experience in prison in Western Penitentiary of Pennsylvania, in Pittsburgh, from 1892 to 1906. The book begins with the details of how Berkman came to be imprisoned: as an anarchist activist, he had attempted to assassinate wealthy industrialist Henry Clay Frick, manager of the Carnegie steel works in Pennsylvania. The cloth is somewhat faded and has a little staining. Chipping to the top edge of the spine - but has been sympathetically repaired. Darkening to the pages, and the ink of the gift inscription is somewhat faded, but still legible. Some handling, and obviously read, but still very presentable. Berkman - Russian born, anarchist and lover of Emma Goldman, in 1919 he was finally deported to the Soviet Union where he would also be eventually expelled. Cook, Cassius V., 1879-1950 - American anarchist, worked in Chicago as treasurer of the Rationalist Association of North America in 1915 and publisher of the Libertarian Magazine. In 1917-1918 he was secretary-treasurer of Daniel Wallace's League of Humanity. He spoke at an Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman Protest Defense Meeting, held under the auspices of the League of Humanity on 23 June 1917 with Daniel H. Wallace, William Nathanson, and William Abrams. Cook was arrested on 28 March 1918 and charged with violation of the Espionage act, but was able to escape a prison term "due to the extraordinary cautiousness of my good friend Attorney Harold O. Mulks of Chicago." (Cook to Agnes Inglis 26, March 1943, Cassius Cook Papers, Labadie Collection, University of Michigan), Lucy Parsons put up her house in Chicago to help bail out Cook in 1918 and he was released about a month after his arrest. In April 1918 Mother Earth Bulletin reported that he was arrested and placed under $10,000 bail, charged with conspiracy to obstruct the draft, and a C.V. Cook Defense Committee was organized in Chicago. After his release from Cook County Jail he became publicity director for the Tom Mooney case in Chicago, and was then appointed by the President of the Chicago Federation of Labor to a Committee of Fifteen to help build a chain of cooperative retail stores and a national cooperative Wholesale shop, a venture which eventually failed.

A mysterious figure, without any appearent means of support, St. Germain moved in high social circles, sometimes serving as a back-channel between the French and British governments. Strange rumors swirled around the Count, with claims he never ate, could transmute matter, was completely celibate, and was immortal. Some notable European luminaries who wrote about him in include Voltaire, Marie Antoinette, Cassanova, Madame de Pompadour, Mesmer and Rousseau. Linked to the Freemasons, Francis bacon, and Shakespeare.
