        PIERRE L'EBOURIFFE Joyeuses Histoires et Images Drolatiques Pour les Enfants de 3 a 6 ans. Traduit sur l'Edition Originale par Trim. ( Struwwelpeter ).

      Paris, Librairie Fischbacher, S.A. printed by Auguste Weisbrod, Francfort, 1912.REPRINT 1912 (dated on lower cover), small 4to, 263 x 208 mm, 10¼ x 8¼, French text, red cloth spine, buff boards with hand coloured repeat of title page, publisher's adverts to lower board. Hand coloured title illustration (repeating illustration on page 1 of the original except that centre illustration at lower edge of Gaspard seated at the table is replaced by the publisher's imprint). 24 pages of hand coloured illustrations. This Struwwelpeter is notable for having a huge mass of straight hair hanging down to his ankles. Edges of covers just very slightly darkened, slightest wear to corners, contents exceptionally clean and bright. Near Fine excellent copy of a title scarce in any edition. French version of Struwwelpeter following the original illustrations quite closely. First published in 1860, Fischbacher was still publishing this version in 1929 (see BNF). The early French editions stated that it was translated from the German of Dr Hoffmann, but for obvious reasons from 1872 onwards this this information was dropped. Not in Baumgartner. The illustration of Pierre on page 2 is very close to the second design made by Hoffmann in 1858 (for image of Pierre see Bilderwelt page 238, but this shows the 1929 cover which is quite different from our copy). 'Regardez un peu, le voici: / Pierre l'Ebouriffe! Fi! Fi! / Quand on veut lui peigner la tete / Le sale dit: Non! et s'entete...' MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        Die zwölf Monate. Originallithographien. [Jahreszeiten, Januar - Dezember].

      Verlag der Wiener Werkstätte,, Wien, 1912 - Wien, Verlag der Wiener Werkstätte, o. J. [1912]. 4°. o. Pag. [13 Bll.] Lose Blattsammlung in OLwd.-Mappe m. aufgezogenen Farblithographien (2). Erste Ausgabe. Vorderen Innendeckel und Mappenflügel mit Kleisterpapierüberzug. - Leichte Gbrsp., Ecken gering bestossen. - "Zu den begehrten Raritäten am österreichischen Kunstmarkt und zugleich mit zu den persönlichsten und schönsten Beispielen der graphischen Kunst Franz von Zülows (1883 - 1963) zählen dessen, meist in Leporelloform herausgegebene Monatshefte. Es waren durchwegs kolorierte Originalzeichnungen oder Handdrucke in der von ihm so virtuos gehandhabten Technik des Papierschnittschablonendrucks. Nach einem Entwurfmuster übertrug der Künstler im Durchpauseverfahren (Blaupapier) mit Bleistift die Darstellungen auf Packpapier. Sie wurden anschließend mit Deckfarben oder in Aquarellmanier einfühlsam koloriert und mit Tusche (Redisfeder) in ihren Konturen überarbeitet . Er konnte für diese bibliophilen Kostbarkeiten, deren erste im Dezember 1909 erschien, einen Abonnetenstock von etwa zwanzig Freunden gewinnen, von denen die meisten selbst Künstler waren. Zu ihnen zählten Josef Hoffmann, Kolo Moser, Gustav Klimt, Alfred Roller, Emil Orlik, Otto Wagner, Berthold Löffler und der gleich mehreren anderen der hier genannten ebenfalls an der Kunstgewerbeschule tätige Entdecker und Promotor der "Wiener Jugendkunst" Franz Cizek. Erster Abonnent war die "Wiener Werkstätte", deren Gründer Hoffmann und Moser auch privat ab Dezember 1909 mit jeweils einer laufenden Abnahme Zülows Bestrebungen auf einem ihnen in manchem verwandten Zweig buchkünstlerischer Gestaltung unterstützen wollten. 1912 wurden die Hefte auch von der Staatsgalerie bestellt, dem Vorläufer der heutigen Österreichischen Galerie am Oberen Belvedere . In den Monatsheften - und hier vor allem in den Ausgaben seit 1911/12 - gelingt es Zülow die unverwechselbar eigenständige kongeniale Weiterführung des Papierschnittschablonendrucks in dichten, kleinformatigen Werken, die neben dominierenden expressionistischen Elementen auch solche des Kubismus aufweisen. Dieses lange Zeit hindurch in Vergessenheit geratene Material zählt zweifellos zu dem was innerhalb des Gesamtwerkes von Zülow einer vorrangigen Aufwertung bedarf."

        A Negro Explorer At The North Pole. With a Foreword by Robert E. Peary, and an Introduction by Booker T. Washington

      New York: Frederick A. Stokes, 1912. New York: Frederick A. Stokes, 1912. First Edition. An unusually fine copy. Henson (1866-1955) became Peary?s valet on a canal survey trip to Nicaragua in 1887-1888, and accompanied Peary on trips to the arctic in 1891. He became indispensable to Peary on these expeditions, particularly for his resourcefulness in equipment handling. It took Peary and Henson eighteen years of Arctic expeditions to gather the expertise to reach the Pole, and return. On an 1891 expedition they proved that Greenland was an island. On April 6, 1909, Peary, Henson and four Inuit made it to the North Pole; with Henson planting the American flag. It took the expedition five months to return and send the message by cable, ?Stars and Stripes nailed to the North Pole -- Peary.? Dr. Frederick Cook claimed to have reached the Pole earlier, but a commission of the National Geographic Society credited Peary, a process that became necessary once again in the 1980s when an astronomer charged that Peary missed the mark, not an unlikely scenario in the days before radio and GPS receivers. In 1989 the National Geographic Society once again endorsed the claim of Peary?s expedition, but this is a controversy that is not likely to ever completely disappear. When Peary and Henson returned from the North Pole many were unable to accept this black man as a hero.

Come on, Marse Robert, your boys in gray are waiting; We have bivouacked in this granite since the minnie struck us dumb; But we'll rise in ancient glory to hear the splendid story Of your valor and your greatness yet to come. Come on, Marse Robert, the nation needs your presence. It needs you on this mountain where all its sons may gaze. In this time of strife and passion, lead them, in your kindly fashion, Into peace and brotherhood, as in the olden days. InvCode ZU34 ViewFair Books : [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        THE PRINCE AND BETTY

      Mills & Boon , 1912. Mills & Boon , 1912. First UK edition. Original red cloth lettered in gilt to spine and black to the upper cover. A very good copy indeed, bright with minor marking to the spine. Ownership name and W.H.Smith sticker to the front pastedown, internally very fresh. On the basis of a serialisation in Ainslee's Magazine, Wodehouse was commissioned by romance publishers, Mills & Boon, to adapt the work for the British audience. The book was published in May 1912 shortly after the American edition based on the serialisation. In our experience one of the scarcest of Wodehouse's novels, particularly so in nice condition.

        Cupid and Psyche

      London - Herbert and Daniel, 1912. London - Herbert and Daniel, 1912 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A beautiful book of Woodward's English translation of Apuleius' famous story. First edition. Printed at the Chiswick Press. George Ratcliffe Woodward (27 December 1848 3 March 1934) was an Anglican priest who wrote mostly religious verse, both original and translated from ancient authors. The best-known of these were written to fit traditional melodies, mainly of the Renaissance. He sometimes harmonised these melodies himself, but usually left this to his frequent collaborator, composer Charles Wood. Cupid and Psyche is a legend that first appeared as a digressionary story told by an old woman in Lucius Apuleius' novel, The Golden Ass, written in the 2nd century AD. Apuleius likely used an earlier tale as the basis for his story, modifying it to suit the thematic needs of his novel. With originalprotective paper wraps. Condition: In original imprinted paper-covered boards. Externally, lovely condition. Internally, firmly bound, bright and clean. Almost all pages are unopened at the top edge. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.
