        Album of 17 original silver print coaching photographs, upper cover gilt-titled "'All Sport' / Plaza Hotel - Arrowhead Inn - Madison Square Garden / Nov. 23, 1912 / L. Moyes"

      New York ca. 1912 New York, ca. 1912. (COACHING) Oblong 8vo (10 x 13 inches). On front endpaper is pasted the business card of "Haas / Photographer / 546 Fifth Avenue New York City", presumably the studio of Robert Haas, an Austrian-born photographer. Each photo, about 5 x 8 inches, is mounted on hinged card stock on two-color under-mats, protected by glassine sheets--a very attractive presentation. Original blue calf, a little scuffed, bottom of spine worn, else fine. Witkin and London, Photograph Collector's Guide, p. 349 . An album of exceptional interest, recording the excursion of two four-in-hand coaches (one, presumably driven by Mr. Moyes) beginning at the Plaza Hotel entrance, entering and going through Central Park and up Riverside Drive (past the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument) and thence along the Hudson and into the countryside, where they pose by what is presumably the Arrowhead Inn before returning to New York. On some stretches they share the road with automobiles, and there is a particularly fetching scene of one coach and two cars at a suburban intersection under the watchful eye of a mounted police sergeant. As many as ten elegantly-dressed, carnation-wearing passengers are shown seated atop one of the vehicles, which bears the lettering: "Claremont / Washington Heights / New Rochelle / Fordham", suggesting that it may be a public coach. We have been unable to trace Mr. Moyes (he was not, apparently a member of The Coaching Club) but on this outing at least, he and his friends seem to be having a good time while it lasted, before the ubiquitous automobile curtailed the sport on public roads.

        (1) Zur Chemie des Zellkerns. (2) Weitere Beitr? zur Chemie des Zellkerns, plus 14 offprints on nucleins (nucleoproteins)

      1879-1912. First edition. Very Good/No Dust Jacket. Miescher's Copies of Kossel's papers on Nucleic Acids Kossel, Albrecht (1853-1927). (1) Zur Chemie des Zellkerns. Offprint from Zeitschr. phys. Chem. 7 (1882). 7-22pp. Original printed wrappers. (2) Weitere Beitr? zur Chemie des Zellkerns. Offprint from Zeitschr. phys. Chemie 10 (1886). 248-264pp. Original printed wrappers, vertically creased. (3) 14 offprints detailing Kossel's researches on nucleins (nucleoproteins), as listed below. 1879-1912. See list for condition details. One of the offprints (no. 13 below) is signed by Kossel; 8 of the offprints bear the booklabel and stamp of Johann Friedrich Miescher (1844-95), discoverer of nuclein; see G-M 695. First Editions, Offprint Issues. G-M 702 (nos. [1] and [2]). Kossel was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1910 "in recognition of the contributions to our knowledge of cell chemistry made through his work on proteins, including the nucleic substances" (Nobel E-Museum). His researches on "nucleic substances" represent some of the early stages in the development of molecular biology. In 1869 J. F. Miescher, then working in Felix Hoppe-Seyler's biochemical laboratory in T?gen, discovered in the cell nucleus an acid-insoluble, alkali-soluble, high-phosphorus containing substance that he named nuclein; we now know it as DNA. Kossel's researches on nuclein, begun ten years after Miescher's discovery, led to the development of reliable methods for isolating, purifying and analyzing the nucleus, identification of the chemical makeup of nuclein, and the discovery of the nitrogen bases adenine, thymine, cytosine and uracil, familiar to us now as some of the fundamental components of DNA and RNA (guanine, the remaining DNA nitrogen base, had been discovered previously). Kossel and his students working in Berlin: "demonstrated that these, together with xanthine, hypoxanthine, and guanine (sarcine), are breakdown products of nucleic acids, which can be used to distinguish between the true nucleins of the cell nucleus and the spurious nucleins found in milk and egg yolk, which he termed "paranucleins." . . . From physiological studies Kossel correctly concluded that the function of nuclein is neither to act as a storage substance nor to furnish energy for muscular contraction; rather, it must be associated with the formation of fresh tissue [i.e. the production of proteins] "(DSB). By the end of the nineteenth century, Kossel had characterized nucleins as unique substances-acidic substances, for which Richard Altmann introduced the term "nucleic acid" in 1889. Our collection of offprints includes seven of the papers on nucleins cited in the DSB's article on Kossel (nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 below), plus two of the three papers cited as Garrison-Morton 702 (nos. [1] and [2] above). Kossel never specifically linked his work on nucleic acids to heredity, but he was aware of their general role in the production of proteins. After his receipt of the Nobel Prize he speculated publicly on the source of biological specificity, particularly in his Herter Foundation lecture (no. 14 below), in which he "clearly recognized the potential diversity of polypeptides and saw in the structure of proteins the chemical basis of biological specificity"(DSB). Eight of the offprints in this collection bear the ownership marks of Miescher, whose discovery of nuclein in 1869 is referenced above. Both Miescher and Kossel had been students of Felix Hoppe-Seyler, a founder of the science of physiological chemistry. Magill, Nobel Prize Winners (phys. & med.), pp. 139-47.

        Hours of Gladness

      1912. first edition. First Trade EditionWith Twenty Color Plates by Detmold[DETMOLD, Edward J., illustrator]. MAETERLINCK, Maurice. Hours of Gladness. Translated by A. Teixeira de Mattos. Illustrated by E.J. Detmold. London: George Allen & Co., [1912].First trade edition. Quarto (11 x 8 1/2 inches; 278 x 220 mm.). x, 181, [1, printer’s imprint], [1, publisher’s device], [1, blank] pp. Twenty mounted color plates (including frontispiece). Title-page decorated in black and white designed (and signed by) Detmold. Original cream-colored cloth. Front cover lettered in gilt with floral decorations in yellow, brown, and gray after a design by Detmold (signed E.J.D. at lower right), back cover with a similar floral decorations in yellow, brown, and gray, spine stamped and lettered in gilt. White endpapers with small black floral vignette, all edges uncut. Mild soiling to cloth, spine very slightly darkened, small stain at upper edge of rear cover. Otherwise a very good copy, internally crisp and clean. Partially unopened.Belgian poetic dramatist and essayist Maurice Maeterlinck (1862–1949) “wrote in French, establishing himself as one of the leading figures in the symbolist movement with his play La Princesse Maleine (1889; English trans. 1892). In 1892 Pelléas et Mélisande appeared (trans. 1894), the work for which he is now chiefly remembered and the source of Debussy’s opera of the same name (1902). He also achieved great contemporary popularity with L'Oiseau bleu (1908; The Blue Bird, 1909) and was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1911. He drew heavily on traditions of romance and fairy tale, and the characteristic tone of much of his drama is one of doom-laden mystery and timeless melancholy. He also produced a number of essays of a philosophical nature, including La Vie des abeilles (1901; The Life of the Bee, 1901) and L'Intelligence des fleurs (1907; The Intelligence of Flowers, 1907)” (The Oxford Companion to English Literature).After the tragic death of his twin brother and collaborator, Edward Detmold concentrated his talents on books, primarily of flowers and animals: “Detmold’s finest plates are those produced for The Fables of Aesop (1909), The Life of the Bee (1911), and Hours of Gladness (1912), the latter with texts after Maurice Maeterlinck, the Belgian poet, naturalist, and mystic…A painting of chrysanthemums, contained in Hours of Gladness, is a glorious acknowledgement of the artist's debt to William Morris and Burne-Jones” (David Larkin, The Fantastic Creatures of Edward Julius Detmold).Houfe, p. 283.

        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.

        THE STONEGROUND GHOST TALES COMPILED FROM THE RECOLLECTIONS OF THE REVEREND ROLAND BATCHEL, VICAR OF THE PARISH

      Cambridge: W. Heffer & Sons Ltd.,. 1912. original pictorial blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black.. Two tiny spots to rear cover, a clean, tight, nearly fine copy. An. attractive copy of a book rarely found in nice condition. (#96609). First edition. A collection of nine ghost stories dedicated to Swain's longtime friend M. R. James. "... Swain's tales share many features with those of James' and draw on the friends' common interests and antiquarian studies. They are however rather milder in tone and regularly incorporate a playful humour not often found in James' work. The tales relate the adventures of a fictionalized version of the author, Mr Batchel, Rector of Stoneground parish. Although by today's standards, readers may find Swain's stories rather lacking in supernatural horrors, their subtle qualities become apparent on re-reading, and many find Mr Batchel one of the most enduring creations of English ghost fiction." - Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 468.

        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
