        Arthur Rackham Book - Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens From the Little White Bird A New Edition Enlarged n.d. But Scarce c1912 Edition Illustrated by Arthur Rackham

      Hodder and Stoughton 1912. The First Edition has for sale this is very rare and highly sought after circa 1912 edition of the J.M. Barrie classic Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens illustrated by Arthur Rackham with this edition being enlarged (9.00 x 11.00 inches approximate); with a new Frontispiece and 7 additional full page drawings by Rackham; and for the first time all the illustrations in order as opposed to being at the end of the book (as per the first and early editions of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens upto this issue)____The original green boards are ornately decorated and lettered in gilt to the front and spine. The boards are in Very Good condition with marks to the front and back boards; corner knocks; and with fading to the spine. Despite the faults that is commonly found with these books, these are a very attractive set of boards.____The endpapers are plain green to the front and back. There are 125 numbered pages which are in overall Very Good condition with occasional spotting mainly to the edges/margins of the pages where present. This book is clean of any inscription - which is extremely rare to find.____All the colour tipped-in plates are mounted on thick green card, are present and in Fine condition (see the first, second, third and fourth pages of illustrations). These colour plates are in order as opposed to being at the end of the book as per the 1906 First Edition and subsequent editions upto this 1912 edition. They are accompanied by their thin translucent captioned tissue guards (lacking one) which are in Good to Very Good condition with creases and tears to a number of them.____Due to the fact that this circa 1912 edition of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens has the totally new frontispiece and 7 full page drawings that was not available in the first edition or previous editions, this is a highly collectable and sought after J.M. Barrie and Arthur Rackham book that is very difficult to find. This is a magnificent Peter Pan collector's item that is nearing 100 years old!!!

        Die Skizzenbucher Jacopo Bellinis

      G. Van Oest Brussels: G. Van Oest, 1912. Hard Cover. Very Good. Folio. Bellini (c.1400-c.1470) was a key figure in the development of Renaissance painting in northern Italy. He also founded something of a dynasty, with his sons and son-in-law, Andrea Mantegna, all becoming famous painters in their own right. Most of Bellini';s paintings have disappeared, and his two surviving sketchbooks, one at the Louvre and one at the British Museum, are how he is best remembered. These two oversized folio volumes lavishly reproduce the masterful drawings from each sketch book along with a facing description of each. Volume I has 134 plates and Volume II has 100. Many are on double pages and fold out. Very good in the original half vellum with brown paper boards and gilt title to spine and front boards. As with most heavy books, the joints show some splitting but have been repaired and are holding tight. The vellum has some soiling and spotting, and there is minor scuffing to the paper boards. The interior is bound tightly and is very clean. ART/8122. Very Good.

        Journal des Dames et des Modes

      1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITION OF ALL 79 ISSUES, WITH 186 HAND-COLORED PLATES by some of the most famous artists of the era. Number 884 (each issue from the same set) of only 1250 sets on Holland paper (out of a total edition of 1279). IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS IN FINE CONDITION. "The Journal des Dames et des Modes lasted only two years (the first issue appeared on 1 June 1912, and the last on 1 August 1914). This stylish periodical was issued regularly three times a month, and ceased publication upon the outbreak of the First World War. With its expensive layout, its society columns, its poetic texts, its colourful annotations, and its fashion reports, it represented the last brilliant, refined, impartial, and aestheticizing impulse of a happy and optimistic society occupying the centre of the stage in the period that has aptly been called the 'belle époque'... It was essentially the testimony, the history--illustrated, or rather 'clothed' and narrated--of the customs, ideas, and ideals of a society and a period."Every issue carefully reviewed all the current novelties of fashion, [and] every issue carried coloured stencil prints reproducing the latest conceptions of the fashion designers." For the text, "the magazine could count on the collaboration of the best known writers and littérateurs of the time," including Henri Duvernois, Marcel Boulenger, Paul Margueritte, Jean Cocteau, and many others. The artistic contributions "included the works of some outstanding artists and many promising young ones. Most frequent in his appearance, and outstanding for the quality of his illustrations, was Georges Barbier." Other artists included Léon Bakst, Bernard Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, H. Robert Dammy, Paul Iribe, Charles Martin, and Fernand Siméon. (Christina Nuzzi, Parisian Fashion from the "Journal des Dames et des Modes"). Note: all 186 plates are present, numbered 1-184 with two unnumbered plates.Paris: 1912-1914. Octavo, each issue loose as issued in original wrappers, inserted loosely into four half-yearly plus one supplemental original large wrappers. A few plates with spots but generally exceptionally clean, dampstaining to edges of five issue wrappers. A nearly immaculate set, exceedingly scarce in original wrappers.

        Människans rättigheter i ett civiliserat och kristet samhälle.

      (Ur Social-demokraten). Stockholm, R. W. Statlanders boktryckeri, 1912. 10,(2 blanka) s. Klammerhäftad. Gott skick.. Jfr Zetterlund VI:1430, som inte kände till denna separatutgåva. Artikeln trycktes ursprungligen i "Socialdemokraten" på Strindbergs födelsedag den 22 januari 1912. Strindberg argumenterar här för avskaffande av hinder i befordringsgången inom statliga verk och militär. Han beklagar att tjänare, arbetare och hantverkare, oumbärliga för "de övres" dagliga liv, inte får betalt efter förtjänst. "'Om arbetet skulle betalas efter förtjänst, skulle industrin upphöra' har någon sagt. Må den ramla då, när den är byggd på så orättfärdig grund eller på missbjudande, eller på missbruket av en medmänniskas nödställda belägenhet."

        In Storyland with Louis Wain

      London : Raphael Tuck , nd [1912] . First Edition . Fair . Folio . Raphael Tuck 6786. An oversized book bound in glossy boards on thickly woven "Untearable" paper illustrating scenes from tales and folklore in coloured lithographs nearly filling each page. The subjects range widely including Bluebeard, Robin Hood, Sindbad, Robinson Crusoe, Jack in the Beanstalk and various sports and games ; the characters are mostly cats with the occasional dog and each page has two to four line captions in verse. The title page calls for 24 full colour illustrations but there are only 20 although there are 4 duotone illustrations in red and black. I believe it safe to assume that four plates are missing although one of the probable missing - Robinson Crusoe - is used for the front cover. The pages although they generally seem to be genuinely untearable or at the least difficult to tear are however subject to creasing and several of the pages are creased horizontally all the way across and several vertically from top to bottom. One page - Cinderella on the recto and Setting the Fashion on the verso is actually torn for an inch or so along that vertical crease. The main reason for the difficulty in speaking with absolute certainty about the number of plates is the book's extreme scarcity. I have been able to locate no other copies listed for sale, in auction records, in OCLC (including the British Museum), or in extensive searches through relevant catalogues and consultation with other booksellers. The book is listed in Dale and the date given as 1912. Apart from the creasing the boards are worn with some staining and many of the pages are frayed at the edges. There is a large piece missing from the rear endpaper. A large book, special shipping considerations may apply for overseas orders.

        The Ex-Libran

      Kansas City, MO: H. Alfred Fowler, 1912. Paperback. 1 of 400 copies. Volume I, Number 3. The publication was discontinued after Volume I, Number 4. This is a very scarce issue of this short-lived magazine Òdevoted to book-plates, bibliophilism, and art.Ó The publication was edited and published by H. Alfred Fowler, a major collector of stamps, bookplates, and books, who had made his fortune in grain securities. In Volume I, Number 4 he writes that, with regret, he cannot devote so much of his time to the publication, but intends to launch another publication, The Biblio. Much of this issue was devoted to the bookplates of Lucien Pissarro, founder of the Eragny Press. An essay on his bookplates is written by JM Andreini, for whom Pissarro did one out of a total of six bookplates. This plate is tipped in, along with impressions from two other Pissarro woodcuts done for The Queen of the Fishes and FlaubertÕs Un Coeur Simple. There are three other short articles on bookplates, including one that perhaps was done for Marie-Antoinette. The image is tipped in. Laid in is a four-page advertising supplement. In very good condition in cream paper wraps, bound by thread, with black title to front cover. Minor splits along spine edges, and browning to paper. Interior pages are bright and clean. Pages 39-52 plus separate unpaginated supplement. BOB/070711. Very Good.

        La Charrue d'Érable

      Paris: Le Livre Contemporain, 1912. Octavo. 108pp. One of 116 copies printed at the Eragny Press. Illustrated with twelve full-page, color wood-engravings drawn by Camille Pissarro and engraved by Lucien Pissarro. In addition, there are numerous wood engraved vignettes, initials, and the title-page border by Lucien Pissarro. This is not only the most important book of the Eragny Press, but is also Camille Pissarro's only substantial illustrated book. Camille Pissarro exhibited in the first Impressionist show in 1874 and continued his association with the Impressionists for the next dozen years. He then adopted the style of Pointillism briefly, before reverting to an Impressionistic style of landscape painting. It was during this last period of his life that he made the drawings that would eventually result in La Charrue d'Érable. Although the book was not published until 1912, most of the blocks were cut and proofed by Camille before his death in 1903. Lucien Pissarro was trained as a painter by his father, exhibited with the Impressionists, and eventually became interested in book making. After settling in London, he and his wife Esther learned the arts of printing and book design from Charles Ricketts. The early books from Pissarro's Eragny Press were printed with type supplied by Ricketts. This book, the penultimate from the Press, is printed in a typeface designed by Lucien Pissarro. Bound in full limp green calf with gilt titling on the upper cover. A few pages with faint foxing, spine slightly faded to brown, else a fine copy of one of the most difficult private press livre d'artiste books to obtain.

        THE SOUTH POLE; An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the 'Fram,' 1910-1912, by Roald Amundsen, translated from the Norwegian by A. G. Chater, in Two Volumes.

      London: John Murray, 1912.. 1st Edition in English (published the same year as the Norwegian first); 2 Volumes. Vol I, xxxv, 392pp, 59 plate leaves including photographic frontipiece, 1 folding map. Vol II, xx, 449pp, 46 plate leaves including photographic frontipiece, 1 folding diagram, 1 folding chart, 1 folding coloured map, 16 charts in text. Original burgundy red cloth with gilt titles to front cover and spine, Norwegian flag embossed on front cover. Top edges gilt, uncut. An account of the first expedition to reach the South Pole, a handsomely produced book containing ten full-page photographic images not found in the Norwegian edition. 1st edition in English, published the year before the New York edition and quite scarce. Amundsen had originally planned an expedition to repeat Nansen's drift with the Fram through the Arctic Ocean, and presumably to try for the North Pole, but support for the project fell with the announcement of Cook's & Peary's accomplishments. He then turned toward the south, even though Scott's plans to attempt the South Pole were well known, and was severely criticised (mostly in Great Britain) for competing with Scott. The two polar journeys were in marked contrast, and form part of one of the greatest dramas of exploration - Amundsen made the trip with dogs and skis, and with little difficulty, reaching the pole a month before Scott's party; Scott and four others reached the pole, but died on the return, just short of safety, after an heroic but ill-planned trip, dragging their own sleds. When Amundsen revealed he was bound for the Pole, the backer of the British expedition opined that the Fram "has no more sailing qualities than a haystack. In any case, Scott will be on the ground and settled long before Amundsen turns up, if he ever does". Amundsen's party reached the Pole 34 days ahead of Scott. There were crucial differences in approach from Scott's ill-fated expedition: dogs, rather than men, provided the raw power needed to pull equipment (they also eventually provided a food source) and the Norwegian crew knew to wear fur clothing rather than the wool used by the British team. Volume II contains appendixes on the eastern sledge journey, the voyage of the Fram, the construction of the ship and the scientific results of the expedition. A cornerstone of Antarctic exploration. Spence 16; Taurus 51; Taurus 71; Rosove 9.A1. Covers worn, split and loosening, (spine detached rear volume II), odd page loose, minor spotting on some pages, previous owners signature on feps, contents clean. Very Good.

        The South Pole: An Account Of The Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in The “Fram” 1910-1912

      London: John Murray, 1912. First Edition of the official account of the first expedition to reach the South Pole, which bested Robert Falcon Scott’s British team by 34 days. Amundsen’s success was attributed to careful preparation, good equipment, the use of animal skins rather than heavy woollen clothing, the effective use of skis and of dog sleds for transportation, the use of dogs as well as a source of fresh meat, good weather, and the fact that the expedition had a singular aim and did not spend valuable time surveying and making extensive photographic records. Amundsen reached the Pole on December 14, 1911. He named his South Pole camp Polheim, “Home on the Pole”, and renamed the Antarctic Plateau as King Haakon VII’s Plateau. Spence 16. 2 Volumes. 8vo. pp. xxxv, 392; x, 449. with half-titles. 2 frontis. portraits & 99 b/w photographic plates, 1 folding diagram, 5 maps (3 folding 2 colour) & 16 charts/maps in text. original cloth, t.e.g. (spine sunned, light wear & slight spotting to covers)

        Constitution, Jefferson's Manual and Rules of the House of Representatives of the United States with a Digest of the Practice: Sixty-Second Congress, Third Session. (Charles A. Lindbergh Sr.'s copy)

      Washington, DC: Government Printing Office. 1912. Softcover. 8vo - 20.5 x 15 cm.; viii - 648 pp. Black leather over thin and flexible boards with gilt lettering on spine and front. This is the "House Manual and Digest" as issued to Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr. upon his taking the oath of office in the House of Representatives as a representati ve from Minnesota. Patterned doublure end papers with a green linen hinge (interior). Front paste down shows remnants of a pasted on typed sheet, a poem by Charles MacKay (Scottish poet - 1814-1889) and the same typed poem ("Keep Gallilee, to thy thought, and nerve the soule to bear; . . .") is pasted in full over the entirety of page 12 of the manual. Inscribed by Lindbergh, Sr. to his son, Charles, Jr., on the front free end paper with the verso of this page having a note to Charles, Jr. from his father. "To Charles A. Lindbergh Jr. Sometime you may be interested to know something of the variety of your fathers sentiments and feelings. More or less of them find expression in the selection that will be found herein - You are not to have these till I give them to you or until I have quit using them because I am likely to add to them from time to time. Your father, Charles A. Lindbergh Sr." This note is in pencil while the dedication on the recto of the end paper is in ink. The manual comes from the estate of Eddie Doherty, a reporter with Liberty magazine. Doherty was working the rewrite desk at the time of the Lindbergh kidnapping and was assigned by the editors to cover the story and subsequent trial. Doherty was a frequent patron of Pete's Steak House in Chicago along with his brother Tom Doherty as were many Chicago newspaper people including Henry and Claire Boothe Luce, both of whom were acquaintances of Eddie Doherty. The manual is disbound (three sections; front to page 248, pages 249 to 486, pages 487 to the end) with the relevant spine sections attached to each section. The yapped cover edges are all but gone with the leather chipped on the margins. Cosmetic and archival repairs have been made to the remaining leather. No further repairs were deemed reasonable given the nature and provenance of the book. The book itself is housed in a custom built clam shell case designed to mimic the appearance of the manual though with different materials: red linen over the 'boards', leather spine with gilt titling and marbled 'text block edges'.; Signed by Author .
