        MEMORIES OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN

      Portland, Maine: Mosher Press, 1912. #5 of only 10 pinted on vellum (real animal skin). Quarto. Fine. 2 p.l., xii, 13 numbered leaves, [15]-16, [1]p. Approx. 12" x 8 3/4". Copy No. 5 of 10 printed on Roman vellum, bound in Classic vellum, and signed by the publisher; partly printed on recto side only. ________ Produced in his finest format in 1912, this splendidly large quarto contains Walt Whitman’s “When Lilacs in the Dooryard Bloom’d,” “O Captain! My Captain,” “Hush’d Be the Camps To-day,” and “This Dust was Once the Man.” Also appearing are Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, a foreword by Walt Whitman devotee and chronicler, Horace Traubel, and selections from Frederick W. Lehman, John Burroughs, a passage from Lowell’s “Commemoration Ode” and an appreciation by the St. Louis newspaper man and publisher, William Marion Reedy. Binding, ties and interior all in very fine condition. ________ Mosher’s 1912 book catalogue mentions that “taken as a whole this may be considered one of Mr. Mosher’s choicest productions” and Norman Strouse called it “an outstanding piece of fine printing, little known today and seldom to be found.” Embellished with a rare photo of Lincoln, and with a variety of designs including a large Morrisian “M” on the title page, this is indeed a handsome production. ________ The vellum printing of Memories is a considerable rarity, e.g., two Boston ABAA dealers who have for decades specialized in books printed on vellum had never seen a copy. In over thirty years of auction records, American Book Prices Current doesn’t record even one copy. Likewise, the extensive Americana Exchange’s millions of records going back to 1945 has not one recorded as being one of the “pure vellum” printings. Great collectors of vellum imprints like William Henry Poor. Gertrude Cowdin, Emilie Grigsby didn't have a copy. Even the most notable modern day collector, Norman Strouse, never secured a copy. These great collectors of the Mosher Books over the years missed having what is undoubtedly the finest vellum production from the Press. Only John Quinn was recorded as having a copy. Quinn’s sale by the Anderson Galleries was in 1924, yet in 1925 the American Art Association conducted a sale on May 4 & 5 in which entry No. 397 indicates “ONE OF TEN COPIES PRINTED ON CLASSIC VELLUM” bold-headlined as “THE FIRST COPY TO APPEAR AT PUBLIC SALE” which, of course, wasn’t the case since the Quinn copy appeared the previous year. ________ Census records of this book have located six of the ten copies printed. Copy No. 1 is at Arizona State University and bears the ownership plate of Anna L. Mosher (Thomas B. Mosher's wife). A copy inscribed to William F. Gable (No. 3) was part of the Vladamire Sokoloff estate (entry 299 in the William F. Gable catalogue, Philadelphia: Samuel T. Freeman, May 1932). Present whereabouts of this privately held copy is currently unknown. Copies No. 5 and 7 are in the Bishop Collection of the Mosher Press. Copy No. 8 is at the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan. Copy No. 9 is in the Hanley Collection at the University of Texas—Austin, The Harry Ransom Center. ________ The present copy No. 5 being herein offered is the Thomas Bell copy presently in the Bishop Collection. Bell was a noted Americana collector in New York City and his library was sold in 1917. Megan Constantinou, the new librarian at The Grolier Club, accessed the Bell sale catalogue and this book was apparently kept from the sale. Bell's bookplate was designed by Nancy Barnhart. ________ All in all, this is a choice and extremely rare offering of a Lincoln/Walt Whitman piece which Harry Lyman Koopman, Brown University librarian, would have classified as "tribute typography" as he called Mosher's larger productions (see his "Modern American Printing" in The American Mercury, May 1924 and his The Booklover and His Books of 1917 (p. 137). ________ In a July 15, 1914 letter Thomas Bird Mosher himself wrote to the one-time publisher, W. Irving Way (Way & Williams), he indicated this vellum copy of Memories of President Lincoln is a "piece of Americana that princes may compete for but only Huntingtons can buy." ________ Truly an outstanding book meriting inclusion in the finest of collections.

        Lettera autografa firmata. (parigi). (1912 - 1938).

      Lettera autografa firmata, con un disegno autografo. La lettera è scritta dallo studio di 3, Rue Joseph Bara - a Montparnasse -, dove l'artista visse e lavorò dal 1912 per ventisette anni. Diciannove righe più la firma ed il disegno autografi. Inviata a Yvette Gaillard (il nome è sulla busta, conservata), che l'artista apostrofa alla fine della lettera 'charmate fille et mauvais modèle': 'Mademoiselle, (que je déteste) / Merci pour votre (...) / Impossible pour lundi / vu que j'ai une princesse / russe belle et brune et vraiment / à poil / Un jour viendra / que vous vous / souviendrez / de moi / et vous viendrez / poser (...)'. Segni di piegatura, e alcune leggere fioriture. Moïse Kisling nacque a Cracovia, dove compì gli studi all'Accademia di Belle Arti sotto la guida di Jòzef Pankiewicz. Fu questi a convincerlo a trasferirsi a Parigi per coltivare il suo talento. Kisling vi si stabilì dal 1910 fino allo scoppio della Seconda Guerra Mondiale quando, a causa delle sue origine ebraiche, fu costretto ad emigrare negli Stati Uniti con Renée Gros, che aveva sposata nel 1917. Durante la Prima guerra Mondiale fu volontario nella Legione Straniera Francese, il che gli valse la cittadinanza. Fu amico intimo di Modigliani, Picasso, Foujita, Soutine, e di molti altri protagonisti della vita artistica del periodo. Già affermato in Europa - soprattutto in seguito alla mostra personale che tenne alla Galérie Druet nel November 1919 -, Kisling riscosse un grande successo anche negli Stati Uniti. Alla fine della guerra tornò in Francia e si stabilì a Sanary-sur-Mer, dove visse con la moglie ed i due figli fino alla fine della sua esistenza, in una casa da lui stesso disegnata che affaccia sulla Baia di Bandol.

        Der Tod in Venedig. Novelle. [In: Die Neue Rundschau. XXIIIter Jahrgang der freien Bühne].

      Berlin, S. Fischer Verlag, 1912. 4to. Volumes 1 and 2 (i.e. the entire year) of "Die neue Rundschau, 1912" present, in the original half vellum bindings with gilt title to spines, top edge gilt. In remarkably fine condition, with just a bit of soiling to spines and a small crack to upper hinges of volume 1 ("Der Tod in Venedig" is in vol. 2). Small stamp in Hebrew to front boards and to title-pages. Large engraved book plates ("E. Schwabach-Märzdorff") to inside of front boards and to front free end-papers. A very nice and clean set.. The true first printing of Thomas Mann's masterpiece, "The Death in Venice". Contrary to what is generally believed, the actual first appearance of "The Death in Venice" was not the extremely scarce de luxe-edition that appeared in 100 numbered copies in 1912. In fact the work originally appeared (and in its entirety) in the October and November issues (i.e. in the second volume, on pp. 1368-1398 + 1499-1526) of "Die Neue Rundschau", 1912. Simultaneusly with this first appearance, Poeschel und Trepte in Leipzig were preparing the luxury edition of the work for Hans von Weber's Hyperionverlag in Munich, as one of his "Hundertdrucke". Probably due to the controversial theme of the work, Thomas Mann was hesitant to immediately handing over the manuscript to his regular publisher S. Fisher for him to publish it directly and had settled on the bibliophile edition already before finishing the work. He did give Fischer the work to publish, though, and thus it came to appear both in Fischer's "Neue Rundschau", over two months, and with Weber's Hyperionverlag. While the first part of the work was being published in "Die neue Rundschau", the luxury edition was being prepared, and in the end, the luxury edition was only issued (shortly) after the second and final part had appeared in "Die neue Rundschau" in November 1912. Shortly after the famous luxury edition, in 1913, Fischer published the first trade edition in book form. By 1924, 50.000 copies of the work had appeared in this form. Thomas Mann's disturbing masterpiece, probably the most famous story of obsession ever written, is considered one of the most important literary productions of the 20th century
