Fol., 96 Seiten, mit 60 auf schwarzen Kartons montierten und durch vorgebundene Trennseiden geschützten Tafeln, darauf Wiedergaben von Autochromien im Dreifarbendruck, sowie 48 farbigen Textabbildungen. -- Eines der frühesten Bücher welches mit dem Autochromverfahren hergestellte Tafeln abbildet. Prächtige Publikation zum Autochromverfahren, ein von den Brüdern Lumiere 1903 entwickeltes Verfahren zur Fertigung farbiger Fotografien in Form von Glas-Diapositiven. Mit dem Autochromverfahren war es erstmals möglich, ein Farbbild mit einer einzigen Aufnahme zu erzeugen.

Die einzelnen Lagen haben noch die Heftlöcher der Original-Lieferungs-Bänder. - Komplette Exemplare sind äusserst selten. Wir konnten auf dem internationalen Markt in den letzten jahrzehnten nur zwei inkomplette Exemplare ausfindig machen. - Vorderdeckel am unteren Rand etwas fleckig - sonst sehr gut erhalten. -- One of the earliest books using the autochrome Lumiere technic. - Very rare book with 60 plates in autochrome Lumiere technic. -- front cover a bit stained at bottom - otherwise in very good condition. - extremely rare when complete!!

        Bill the Minder

Edition de Luxe. Limited to 380 numbered copies (this copy being No. 192), signed by the author/artist. Large quarto (11 1/8 x 9 inches; 283 x 229 mm.). xiv, [2], 254, [2] pp. Sixteen mounted color plates (including frontispiece), with descriptive tissue guards. One hundred and seventeen black and white illustrations, including full title-pages, vignettes, head- and tailpieces. A little light foxing to first and last leaves only, otherwise a fine and fresh copy. Bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe ca. 1990 in full crimson morocco, covers bordered in gilt, front cover pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt with the original design. Spine with five raised bands paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt-ruled board edges, decorative gilt turn-ins, cockerel end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. From the early 1970s through the early 1990s I had a few hundred books bound specially for me (E. Joseph) by Zaehnsdorf of London who were later taken over by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Zaehnsdorf already had several of the original front cover blocks for these limited editions and over the years we had many more cut for the signed limited Rackhams, Dulacs, Nielsens, Robinsons etc, etc. "In Bill the Minder Heath Robinson really found himself. The story is a simple tale or a series of tales about the wanderings of the King of Troy and a boot-cleaner called Bill, who became the Minder (today he would be called a baby-sitter) to the bad-tempered family of a bad-tempered mushroom-gatherer named Crispin. Like most of Heath Robinson's characters, Bill was a solemn little person who took his minding very seriously, even to the extent of studying at the British Museum and in the Minding Room of the Patents Museum at South Kensington. Soon his fame as a Minder spread and he found himself minding a large flock of children. One day they were out in the fields, being minded by Bill, they found an eccentric old man in a haystack. It was the King of Troy, who had been banished from his country. With Bill's assistance, the children set out on a journey, and through a series of adventures they restore this unworldly old gentleman to his throne. In the process they meet some very droll characters. These are the substance of some of Heath Robinson's wittiest drawings" (Lewis, p. 102). Beare 69b; Lewis, p. 216.

        Lives of the Most Eminent Painters Sculptors & Architects. Newly translated by Gaston Du C. de Vere. With five hundred illustrations: In ten volumes.

      London Macmillan & The Medici Society -14 1912 - 10 volumes, 4to., illustrated with 500 plates including 99 in colour, tissue-guards, the odd, random spot to margins, publisher's vellum, gilt panels stamped to upper covers, spines with gilt lettering, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, some minor soiling, stain to spine of volume IV, else a near-fine set. Giorgio Vasari, (1511 - 1574) is considered the first art historian and often referred to as the "father of art history"; Vasari's fame rests on his great tome Le Vite de' più eccellenti architetti, pittori, et scultori italiani (1550), which was dedicated to Cosimo de' Medici. In it Vasari offers his own critical history of Western art through several prefaces and a lengthy series of artist biographies. These discussions present three periods of artistic development: according to Vasari, the excellence of the art of classical antiquity was followed by a decline of quality during the Dark Ages, which was in turn reversed by a renaissance of the arts in Tuscany in the 14th century, initiated by Cimabue and Giotto and culminating in the works of Michelangelo. This enlarged edition has additional chapters, as well as Vasari's own autobiography.

        Journal des Dames et des Modes.

This copy is numbered 1,150 on the limitation page. This journal which borrowed both the title and format of La Mesangere's periodical of over a hundred years earlier, is illustrated by Georges Barbier and Brunellschi, the masters of pochoir, among others and was founded by Tom Antonginigini secretary, friend and biographer of poet, connoisseur and collector, Gabriele D'Annunzio (1863-1938) whom he followed to Paris from Italy in 1910. It was meant to be a reflection of the intellectual and artistic atmosphere of Paris as well as a record of Parisian culture and fashion at the time and also unwittingly reflects the end of the golden Belle Epoque, and the beginning of another very different time in world history. The first issue appeared on 1 June 1912, the last on 1 August 1914 due to the outbreak of World War I. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Za shest let (1906-1912 g. g.).

      Saint Petersburg, [A. S. Suvorin], 1912. 8vo. Contemporary black quarter morocco over marbled boards, spine lettered vertically in gilt art nouveau type; pp. 175; very light wear to edges only; apart from light even browning due to paper stock a very good copy; provenance: 1930s Estonian stamp and release stamp, dated 2002, on title-page; a beautiful copy. First edition of this Tsarist propaganda text, analyzing the six years after the 1906 revolution, and reporting on the unrest spreading throughout the Empire, among workers and students, reporting of rural terrorism (expropriation of the expropriators), bank robberies to fund revolutionary organizations, armed uprisings, strikes, relentless agitation via the press and the First Duma, which had been dissolved rightfully by the government, as it merely served as a platform for the agitators of oppositional propaganda. Polezhaev, who earlier had written a couple of books on Russian history, reports as well on uprisings in Crimea during these years, the declaration of Odessa as a Free City and the activities of the former Duma member and Jewish Socialist cadet leader Osip Yakovlevich Pergament. Polezhaev praises also the financial reforms introduced by prime-minister Stolypin, using statistics suggesting they improved Russia's economy. A French edition, translated by the ultra-conservative journalist Gaston Dru, appeared in the same year as the present edition. COPAC locates copies at Cambridge and UCL only, the BL holds a copy as well.

        [Portrait broadside or poster]: Grace C. Strachan, the President of the Interborough Association of Women Teachers

      New York: Malcom & Hayes, 1912. Very Good. Portrait poster tribute to Grace C. Strachan, the President of the Interborough Association of Women Teachers and the leader of the "Movement for Equal Pay" in New York City. Printed on heavy card stock and measuring 10.25" x 15.5". Near very good with some light soiling at the margins. Once mounted as some paper remnants are affixed to the verso, with a crack or split at the upper right corner; held together by one of the paper remnants. The poster features a portrait of Strachan positioned above a plaque dated 1912 with verses lauding her qualities.Strachan began her teaching career in Brooklyn in 1893 and was rapidly promoted until in 1900 she had become the Associate Superintendent of Schools. When the greater New York City school system was consolidated in 1900, she was selected to serve as a district superintendent. At the time, beginning women teachers were paid only $600 a year or about two-thirds that of a beginning male teacher ($900), and women's salaries topped out at $1,440 year or about 60% that of a male teacher ($2,400/year) with equivalent credentials and experience. In her new position, Strachan began campaigning for "Equal Pay for Equal Work" and eventually published a book with that title about the same time she became the President of the Interborough Association of Women Teachers (IAWT).As the association president she lobbied extensively for the cause, and was finally successful in the fall of 1911. This tribute poster was printed the following year. Interestingly, she may have become quite wealthy as a result of her campaign as *The New York Times reported that 90% of New York City's female teachers pledged to contribute their first month's salary increase - a total of over $200,000 - as a thank-you "endowment" to Strachan who, when questioned, did not definitively deny that she would accept such a gift, replying, "That is like asking a boy if he would refuse to be President of the United States. We can't grasp what is only in the air."

Signed lower right corner. Several small tears and tiny nicks, else near fine. We can find little about the artist who created this. Undated, it seems like it was contemporary with Barton's death. We are unsure of the acronym after Putnam's name, it might possibly stand for the Worcester Art Museum School, of Worcester, Massachusetts, founded in 1896. Unique.

        Address of President Taft At the Banquet of the Lotos Club, New York City, November 16, 1912.

      Washington, D.C: U.S. Govenment Printing Office, 1912. First edition. Octavo, original wrappers. Inscribed by the author on the front panel, "For Professor Laurence Laughlin with my compliments William H. Taft January 9, 1913." The recipient Laurence Laughlin was an was one of the leading economists in America in the early twentieth century and helped to found the Federal Reserve System. Laughlin taught at Harvard University for five years, at Cornell University for two years, and then became the department-head of the new economics department at the University of Chicago from 1892 to 1916. Notably, he appointed many economists with whom he avidly disagreed, such as Thorstein Veblen, to high positions at the university. He was a member of the Indianapolis Monetary Commission, organized in 1897, and prepared its report, one of the important documents in the history of American banking and monetary reform. In fine condition. A nice association. William Howard Taft served as the 27th President of the United States (1909-1913) and as the 10th Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court (1921-1930), the only person to have held both offices.

        The Natural Trout Fly and its Imitation.

      St.Helens: Published by the author. [1912]. 8vo. Original green morocco, double gilt fillets to sides, gilt lettering to upper board and spine, gilt turn ins, marbled endpapers, a.e.g; pp. 144, 16 plates in colour and b&w, with 9 step mounted plates containing 100 flies; three flies with slight loss, otherwise very good indeed. First edition, scarce in this state. It is unknown exactly how many copies were issued with the flies, but a letter from the author to the printer of the book, A.D. Bartlett, dated 2nd September 1912 states that there were 30 copies with the flies, plus two extra illustrated copies for the author himself and his collaborator, J. Unsworth. These special copies cost 2 guineas as opposed to the 10s 6d price of the ordinary first edition. Many of the flies seem very unconventional compared to those used by Halford and Skues, and include such unusual species as crane-flies and spiders.

        Binding title:] Peines [et] supplices.

      [France/Belgium, early 20th century]. - 4to (235 x 200 mm). [52 pp.] Album containing 24 small contact prints (25 x 25 mm) and 153 albumen or gelatin silver prints (65 x 80 mm), both mostly numbered and captioned in French on the photograph, 16 photographic reproductions of paintings or drawings (175 x 130 mm), 2 albumen prints of nudes and 17 silver gelatin prints of sadomasochistic scenes (105 x 150 mm). Contemporary black cloth, with the title ("H. Rabier - peines - supplices") on the spine. Captivating erotic photo album containing both original photographs and reproductions on the themes of "punishment and penance", which in most cases means flagellation. Sadomasochism, including flagellation, was very popular in the Belle Époque. In France, government restrictions were slightly looser than in other European countries, which led to the country producing almost all photographic pornography in the world as well as having an advanced sex industry. Descriptions note that every quality brothel in Paris contained a "torture chamber" and numerous books on the subject appeared, both scientific such as Marius Boisson's "Flagellomanie" (1912) and pornographic. This specific album was probably compiled by a certain H[ector] Rabier, whose name is inscribed on the spine and was possibly a young Belgian. Nothing is known of Rabier other than that he wrote an introduction for "Trois drames" (Gent, 1932) by the Belgian poet and dramatist Edgar Tant (1889-1963). Rabier also features as a character in one of these plays, alongside a fictional version Tant, in which it is stated that he is identical in age to the fictional Tant. Among the reproductions of prints in this album can be found various images of an erotic nature showing the flagellation of women by men and women and non-erotic images of the torture and punishment of (female) heretics and witches including reproductions of artworks. A few series do not involve women and show various types of corporal punishment in the French colonies of Algeria and Indochina and flogging in the British army. A series of 27 images is without direct punishment and shows life in the Parisian women's prison of Saint Lazare, which also doubled as a hospital for the city's prostitutes. 12 photographs are reproductions of wood engravings and on most of the images the pins which were used to hold the engraving are visible. The images show the cruel murder and torture of nude women by Cossacks. Of the original photographs, two "academic nudes" show a woman from the back kneeling on top of a chair or hanging face down over a chair or cabinet. The 17 other photographs all show a demi-clad woman being bound or tortured by an "oriental" man or monks. A montage of small images suggests that the woman and monk photographs, probably suggesting a witch or heretic being tortured by the inquisition, formed part of a larger collection on this subject. Although these photographs were obviously intended as pornographic images, it is interesting to note that they are hardly more explicit than contemporary history paintings at the Salon, or the images in popular histories, as the content of this album shows. - Spine somewhat worn and discoloured. Pages of the album very lightly foxed and some of the photographs partly detached from the page, some of the larger photographs lightly worn and discoloured at the edges; overall both album and photographs are in good condition.

        Korrektive Nasen- und Ohrenplastik (52 pp., 50 Abb, 21 Tafeln).

      Hdb. speziellen Chir. Ohres u.d. oberen Luftwege, 1/2. - Hrsg. v. Ludwig Katz, Hermann Preysing & Felix Blumenfeld. - Würzburg, Verlag von Kurt Kabitsch, 1912, Gr.8, (6), 481 pp., 456 Abb., 46 Taf., orig. Halbledereinband. First Edition of the FIRST MAJOR CONTRIBUTION BY "THE FATHER OF MODERN RHINOPLASTIC SURGERY". G.Aufricht This contribution marks the establishing of modern rhinoplastic by Jacques Joseph. He "began originally as an orthopedic surgeon, but soon he became involved with the reducution of large, protruding ears. Apparently the rumor of his successful operation spread around, and one day a male patient appeared in his office, asking to have his unshapely large nose reduced. Joseph describes the psychologic effect of the conspicuous nose and makes the fundamental observation that the patient 'is happy to move around unnoticed'. He named this first operation "Rhinomiosis". He liked to coin technical terms, usually Greek and Latin (e.g. "Rhinomiosis" for nasal reconstruction, "Melomioplastik" for a face lift, or "Metopo-mioplastik" for wrinkles and frowns of the forehead). The day before his first operation Joseph tried it on a cadaver. He was extremely thorough, and his analytical approach manifested itself in the exact nose measurements, made before and after operation. I always admired this exactness when he fashioned a skin flap. He would measure the defect and flap from every angle, and carefully study the effect of turning the pedicle. The flap fitted perfectly it never had to be streched to make up for shortage. His sense of form was that of an artist, I have never seen a better total nasal reconstruction, whether from the forehead or arm, than Joseph's. Joseph had an ingenious and constructive mind and devised many instruments, some of them obsolete today. He had practically a special instrument for every step of a rhinoplasty. He also devised, for "aseptic" suturing, a horeshoe-shaped doublepronged forceps. It was to thread the suture material without touching either needle or the thread. He gave this method the fancy name "Apodactyle suture" (fingerless suture). This was to prevent stitch infections. Joseph did not use gloves, only three rubber fingers on each hand. He considererd the sense of touch important in endonasal plastic work. He did not wear cap or mask. Nevertheless, he observed accurate aseptic technique and had few complications. This was due to his extreme care and gentleness in handling tissues he called it "biologic sense". Joseph amassed a vast experience which he crystallized into definite methods. No operative step was ever haphazard, nor without careful consideration. cf.

        Gesammelte Werke. Hrsg. von Dr. J. Schwalbe unter Mitwirkung von G. Graffky & E. Pfuhl. 2 in 3 Bde.

      Leipzig, Verlag von Georg Thieme, 1912, Folio, XIV, 706 pp. IV, 680 pp. V, pp.681-1216 1 Portraitafeln, 2 Frontisp., 194 Textabbildungen und 43 z.T. farb. Tafel., 3 Halbledereinbände mit Rückenvergoldung feines Exemplar. First and only Edition of Robert Koch's collected works! Many of the basic principles and techniques of modern bacteriology were adapted or devised by Robert Koch, who therefore is often regarded as the chief founder of that science. His isolation of the causal agents of anthrax, tuberculosis, and cholera brought him worldwide acclaim as well as leadership of the German school of bacteriology. Directly or indicrectly he influenced authorities in many countries to introduce public health legislation based on knowledge of the microbic origin of various infections, and he stimulated more enlightened popular attitudes toward hygienic and immunologic measures for controlling such diseases. So he was ranked by Paul Ehrlich among "the few princes of medical science" and Theobald Smith- not given to loose praise- called him "the master of us all in bacteriology". Such tributes were evoked by a remarkable combination of qualities- extraordinarily methodical technique, dogged perseverance in verifying theories and fearless logic in applying findings, and tireless industry. "Nicht locker lassen" (don't let up) was a favorite exhortation to himself and associates. Koch expressed his career's basic motivation in his first paper on tuberculosis: "I have undertaken my investigations in the interest of public health and I hope the greatest benefits will acure therefrom". In disclosing the causes from disease and expounding the means of prevention, Robert Koch at his best was unexcelled. The Faustian weaknesses and perplexeties he carried do not diminish the lasting benefits that his aspirations bestowed upon mankind. - cit. n. Claude E. Dollmann, DSB 7, p.420-434.Koch's complete works were published two years after his death and contain practically all 99 of his published monographs and scientific papers, as well as 92 previously unpublished reports to national, state and municipal authorities. Vol.I contains his early classic reports on anthrax, wound infections, disinfection, and methods of isolating bacteria, and 18 other papers on tuberculosis that appeared between 1882 and 1910. Vol. II, pt.1 contains 9 publications on cholera and 30 on tropical diseases, chiefly malaria and sleeping sickness. Among the reports to governments in vol. II, pt.2, 53 deal with zoonoses, acute infectious diseases (including cholera and typhoid fever), and tropical diseases 8 with tuberculosis 5 with vaccination regulations and procedures 14 with with sewage disposal and water supplies and 12 with miscellaneous topics ranging from the denaturing of alcohol to smoke nuisances.

        The human factor in works management

      New York: McGraw-Hill, 1912. Hartness, James (1861-1934). The human factor in works management. ix, 159pp. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1912. 191 x 131 mm. Original cloth, gilt-stamped front cover and spine. Fine. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Hartness on the front endpaper: "To Mr. Harry Lee Coe With many happy memories and grateful esteem, the author. Springfield Vermont Jan. 13 1915. James Hartness." First Edition. Hartness was a major inventor of improved machine tools and measuring techniques, who also made pioneering contributions to industrial management. In his Human Factor in Works Management, a reaction to Frederick Winslow Taylor's Principles of Scientific Management (1911), Hartness set forth three of his basic ideas: "(1) that many of the features of the new approach to management were too mechanistic; (2) that many of the new efficiency engineers were completely ignoring human nature; and (3) that the problem of increasing efficiency included psychology as well as engineering and economics" (Nanda, Management Thought, p. 83). Hartness's work can be regarded as one of the foundations of the human relations school of management, together with the works of Frank and Lillian Moller Gilbreth. The recipient of this copy was most likely the Harry Lee Coe who received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan in 1908.

Die ihm nach Promotion und Assistentenzeit an der Juristischen Fakultät in Moskau offenstehende Universitätskarriere schlug er nicht ein, sondern ging 1896 zum Kunststudium nach München. Sein Zugang zur Kunst blieb wissenschaftlich geprägt. Systematisch schrieb er Beobachtungen zur Farbenwirkung nieder im Hinblick auf eine Theorie von objektiver Gültigkeit. Nach kurzer Ausbildungszeit in der Kunstschule Anton Azbès und an der Akademie bei Franz Stuck unterrichtete K. in der \"Phalanx\" selbst, u.a. Gabriele Münter. Mit ihr unternahm er Reisen nach Holland, Tunesien und Italien und verbrachte das Jahr 1906/07 in Sèvres bei Paris. Seit 1908 ließen sich beide wieder in München nieder und malten während der Sommermonate gemeinsam mit Alexej Jawlensky und Marianne von Werefkin in Murnau (Oberbayern) sowie mit Franz Marc in Sindelsdorf. Die Jahre bis 1914 waren von kunstpolitischem Engagement Kandinskys geprägt, der Künstler auf internationaler Ebene miteinander in Verbindung bringen wollte: Er leitete 1909 die \"Neue Künstlervereinigung München\", gab mit Marc 1912 den Almanach Der Blaue Reiter heraus und organisierte zwei Ausstellungen der \"Redaktion des Blauen Reiter\". Er verfaßte theoretische Schriften wie sein Buch \"Über das Geistige in der Kunst\" (1911), dessen kulturkritischer Charakter den Nerv der Zeit traf, die als Antwort auf vernichtende Kritik entstandenen autobiographischen Rückblicke (1913), ferner den Gedichtband Klänge (1913) sowie Bühnenkompositionen. ...
