        Livre des Mille Nuits et Une Nuit

      1912. (ARABIAN NIGHTS) MARDRUS, J.C. Le Livre des Mille Nuits et Une Nuit. Traduction Littérale et Complète du Texte Arabe par le Dr. J.C. Mardrus. Paris: Charpentier et Fasquelle, 1912-1919. Sixteen volumes. Octavo, contemporary half brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $3200.Limited edition of MardrusÂ’ colorful French translation of the Arabian Nights, very handsomely bound.The stories now known collectively as Alf Layla wa-Layla (One Thousand Nights and a Night)-the earliest manuscript of which dates from the 14th century-“have become part of the common heritage of Western and world literature” (Barron, Fantasy and Horror 2-4). Antoine Galland produced the first European translation of the Nights in the early 18th century, in French. His rendition “retained a strong hold on the affections of his countrymen, and it was not until the eve of the 20th century that a retranslation into French was attemptedÂ… MardrusÂ’ translation (which was really more of a loose adaptation) caught the literary mood of the timeÂ… [His] version of the Arabian tales was a belated product of fin-de-siècle taste, a portrait of a fantasy Orient, compounded of opium reveries, jeweled dissipation, lost paradises, melancholy opulence and odalisques pining in gilded cagesÂ… T.E. Lawrence [described] the Mardrus version as ‘Much the best version of the Nights in any language” (Irwin, 36-9). Comprises volumes from several identical limited editions, each limited to 75 sets printed on Holland paper and 25 sets printed on Japanese paper, released by the publisher between 1912 and 1919; this set is printed on Holland paper. Text in French. See Clute & Grant, 51. A beautiful set in fine condition.

        Peter Pan Portfolio

      1912. (RACKHAM, Arthur). The Peter Pan Portfolio by Arthur Rackham, from Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens by J. M. Barrie. London: Hodder & Stoughton, [1912]. Elephant folio (measuring 19-1/2 by 21-1/2 inches), original three-quarter vellum laced at spine with later silk ribbon, green cloth boards, publisherÂ’s cardboard box. $18,000.First edition, one of only 500 copies signed by the publisher and the engraver. The only suite of RackhamÂ’s plates to be issued in an oversize portfolio format, with 12 beautiful folio color prints from RackhamÂ’s Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens mounted on card and matted.Published in 1912 to capitalize on the popularity of the stage production Peter and Wendy, this portfolio contains 12 pictures considered to be RackhamÂ’s personal favorites from the 50 original plates he designed for BarrieÂ’s text. Of RackhamÂ’s designs Barrie wrote, “I like best of all the Serpentine with the fairies, and the Peter in his night-gown sitting in the tree. Next I would [sic] the flying Peters, the fairies going to the ball (as in the ‘tiffÂ’ and the fairy on cobweb)— the fairies sewing the leaves with their sense of fun (the gayest thing this) and your treatment of snow” (Ray). Perhaps BarrieÂ’s comments influenced RackhamÂ’s selection, as this portfolio includes all the images he mentioned. This edition was limited to 500 copies signed by the publishers, engravers and printers, numbered 101-600 (this copy is number 448); copies 1-100 were supposed to be signed on every plate by Rackham, but “Mr. Rackham advises that he signed only about twenty” (Latimore and Haskell, 39). The portfolio brought RackhamÂ’s work great public attention, “and ultimately spawned one fine new piece of music,” DebussyÂ’s “Les Fées Sont dÂ’Exquises Danceuses” (Hamilton, 97). With descriptive tissue guards. Originally issued as a gift book in 1906 with 50 color plates but in a much smaller quarto format. Riall, 113. Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England 329. Plates generally bright and fresh, with occasional light foxing. Interior with expert restoration to title page edges, leaves occasionally remargined at gutter, some mats expertly restored. Vellum with light wear to spine foot, minor bumping to extremities. Expert restoration to scarce original cardboard box. An extremely good copy.

        Marriage

      1912. First Edition . Signed. WELLS, H.G. Marriage. London: Macmillan, 1912. Octavo, original green blind-stamped cloth, top edge gilt. $2250.First edition of this novel, inscribed by Wells on the front free endpaper, ""R.A.G. from H.G."" Presented to and from the collection of Wells’ close friend and frequent scientific adviser, Sir Richard Arman Gregory.""The marriage in question is that of Marjorie Pope to Richard Trafford, a scientific researcher who dramatically enters her life when his plane crashes on a vicarage lawn. Marjorie's expensive tastes force Trafford to give up pure research and work in industry. Wealthy but unfulfilled, the couple eventually retreat to a hut in Labrador where Trafford is injured by a lynx, but Marjorie nurses him back to health and the two resolve to embark on a new way of life serving human progress. For this big, serious novel Wells had taken [Henry] James' advice and switched to the third person to increase perspective… James told Wells that the story was interesting, but it was the story of Wells' ongoing life and thought that interested him rather than those of the characters"" (Sherborne, 215-16). With eight pages of publisher's advertisements at rear. Hammond A8. Wells 46. Inscribed to noted British scientist and Wells' lifelong friend Sir Richard Arman Gregory. In Wells' first work of fiction, he dedicated the work to Gregory as his ""dearest friend."" The two met while students at the Normal School of Science in South Kensington. They jointly authored a textbook, Honours Physiography, in 1891. Reportedly, Gregory was the one person with whom Wells never quarreled. A professor of astronomy, Gregory also possessed expertise in physics, chemistry and other disciplines; he wrote several textbooks and eventually assumed the editorship of the journal Nature, to which Wells frequently contributed. The author often turned to Gregory, and to the experts Gregory contacted on Wells' behalf, for insight and encouragement when writing his famous ""scientific romances."" After Wells' death, Gregory worked to establish the H.G. Wells Memorial to preserve public attention to his friend's body of work. Throughout his life Gregory was a passionate advocate for science—""It is necessary to believe in the holiness of scientific work,"" he once declared—and ""an optimist about man's future"" (Horrabin, in New Scientist, April 11, 1957).A clean, fresh, about-fine inscribed association copy.

Although he hadn't achieved the Pole, his expedition was celebrated as the first to climb Mount Erebus, and set the record of having travelled the Farthest South. In this interim period, Scott on his second Expedition in the Terra Nova, was known to have failed to achieve the Pole, with news of Amundsen's triumph in the Spring of 1912. Another German Expedition had commenced in May 1911, but it was not known to have failed until December 1912. Shackleton filled this time will Talks and Lectures, and some unsatisfactory money making enterprises. He was formulating plans, and organising sponsorship for what was to be his Imperial Transantarctic Expedition, of 1914-17.

        Aux sanctuaires grecs. Paques 1912. XLVIIme croisiere de la "Revue Générale des Sciences".

      Large folio. Original printed wrappers (in colour on the front cover, both after watercolours by Mme. Brouardel); pp. 14, ff. 17-74 (plates with tissue guards), pp. 75-6, title printed in red an blue, with initial leaf with text in red and blue and two photos printed in photogravure, map, 446 snapshots printed in photogravure; apart from tiny marginal spot to title, a fine copy in the slightly worn, original patterned box with cloth ties. Extremely rare sole edition (number 68 of 130 copies) of this luxuriously and privately printed photographic travelogue of a study trip on a ship around Greece, organized by the founder and director of the periodical Revue générale des Sciences, Louis Olivier. The first trip had taken place to celebrate the First Olympic Games of 1896. Most of the tourists were French Grecophiles or former pupils of the École française d'Athènes, altogether a very cultured and educated group. The director of the journey and author of the text was Gustave Fourgères (1863-1927), an archaeology professor specialising in Ancient Greece. This copy was given to M. Poulenc, a member of the tour; we assume that the rarity, both commercially and institutionally (not in COPAC, both KVK and OCLC locate copies in Paris, Lausanne and Geneva) is due to the fact that each of the participants was sent a copy of this work to which several had contributed with their photographic skills. The photos in this impressive volume were not published anywhere else. See Haris Yiakoumis and Isabelle Roy, La croisière des savants, 1896-1912.

        De Paoli e Garrone 1912

      1912. Bella fotografia stampa all'albumina, cm 16x12. Una delle pochissime fotografie di Gozzano che si conoscano. Il poeta è in posa con Garrone e con De Paoli. I due amici guardono verso l'obbiettivo, mentre Gozzano sulla sinistra, appoggiato all'autovettura, volge uno sguardo distratto alla sua destra. è una foto d'insieme significativa: il poeta, il critico, l'amico. La foto fu scattata nel 1912, a un anno dalla consacrazione di Gozzano poeta, anno in cui, aggravatosi il suo stato di salute, decise di compiere un lungo viaggio in India con l'amico Garrone (come Gozzano malato di tisi). La crociera, durata dal 6 febbraio 1912 fino al maggio seguente, non diede a Gozzano il beneficio sperato, ma gli servì a comporre, con l'aiuto della fantasia e di molte letture di argomento esotico, un diario di viaggio , che sarà pubblicato postumo da Treves, nel 1917, con il titolo ''Verso la cuna del mondo'' (i testi erano già apparsi su "La Lettura", "La Stampa" e "La Donna", dal gennaio 1914 all'agosto 1916).

Now housed in a recent Morocco spined fleece lined clamshell box. Occasional light spotting throughout the textblock, area of rough paper to the rear pastedown where a bookplate or similar has been removed. Slight lean to the book. Both front and rear boards show some signs of wear with marking and some bumping to corners. Spine shows quite heavy marking and staining with the gilt faded to white, both front and rear outer joints beginning to go. Overall a very good copy of a rare and marvellous work, arguably Hodgson's greatest (it's not easy train-journey reading, and the linguistic liberties would make Tolkien homicidal, but it is astonishing). The text was highly regarded by many others in the field including the notoriously difficult to impress Mr. H.P.Lovecraft and his cabal.

        Vie de Mélanie bergère de la Salette écrite par elle-même en 1900 - Son enfance (1831-1846)

      - Mercure de France, Paris 1912, 12x19cm, broché. - First Edition. Autografo Precious firmata dall'autore pittore Georges Rouault: "Niente per la sua arte - Non c'è caricatura". Rinforzato indietro con alcune lacune riempite, un restaurato sulla pagina occhietto in cui figura l'invio di lacrimogeni. La nostra copia viene presentato in una confezione regalo completa marocchino nero, dorso liscio, piatti di carta marmorizzata e agnello interni. Rouault ha incontrato Léon Bloy nel 1904 attraverso una delle sue opere: "Mi hanno detto che il pittore Georges Rouault, allievo di Gustave Moreau, una passione per me. Dopo aver trovato il suo padrone "Poor Woman" ... questo libro ha morso il cuore, inguaribilmente ferito "(Journal of L. Bloy, 16 marzo 1904). Nasce così una duratura amicizia tra i due artisti. Tuttavia, quando nel 1905 Rouault esposto al Salon d'Automne "Real Poulot", basato sul romanzo di reazione di Bloy è violento: "... Questo artista è stato creduto capace sembra serafini di dipingere non concepire che i cartoni animati atroci e vendicatori. Infamia Bourgeois lavora in lui un orrore impatto violento che la sua arte sembra ferito mortalmente. Voleva fare i miei personaggi Poulot "povera donna". A qualsiasi prezzo che voglio questa illustrazione. Fu per questo che non vi è più tragico: due cittadini, maschi e femmine, completi: candido, pacifici, misericordiosi e saggi di mettere la feccia della paura costellazioni cavalli bocca. Ha fatto due assassini piccolo borgo. "Nessuno meglio di Raissa Maritain non sapeva descrivere un'amicizia complessa che unisce il giovane pittore e il vecchio scrittore, analizzando sia" la ragione di fondo per il loro dissenso ", citando una lettera Bloy Rouault 1907:" Voi siete attratti esclusivamente dal brutto. "Come loro" ammirazione ", spiega come" la fede viva di uno e l'altro, (...), elevazione e il rigore del loro artista coscienza Quante volte "." - Scritto it - negli anni che seguirono, non abbiamo noi visto Rouault in Bloy, in piedi, appoggiato al muro, un lieve sorriso sulle labbra chiuse, guardando in lontananza, volto apparentemente impassibile, ma un pallore che sarebbe accentuata quando la questione della pittura moderna è stata discussa. Rouault pallido, ma mantenuto attraverso un silenzio eroico. E ancora, nonostante l'opposizione decisa sullo stesso tema della sua arte, egli rimase fedele a Léon Bloy. Sembrava lui aveva lo stesso sguardo in accuse Bloy, che lo tormentava ciò che di più caro - non per sottoporli a una discussione, ma per metterli alla prova contro la forza dell'istinto che l' ha portato verso l'ignoto ed è stato superare ogni ostacolo. "(" All'alba di nuove amicizie "a New Polling ottobre 1941) Questo è lo stesso Léon Bloy, rispettoso ma fermamente critico della sua giovane amico, che egli dedica questo ritratto di un santo, questa bellezza elegia che non sarà mai in grado di percepire nell'opera di Rouault. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Léon Bloy au peintre Georges Rouault: "Rien pour son art - Il n'y a pas de caricature". Dos renforcé comportant quelques manques comblés, une déchirure restaurée sur la page de faux-titre où figure l'envoi. Notre exemplaire est présenté dans un coffret en plein maroquin noir, dos lisse, plats de papier marbré et intérieur en agneau. Rouault fait la connaissance de Léon Bloy en 1904 par l'intermédiaire d'une de ses oeuvres: « On m'apprend que le peintre Georges Rouault, élève de Gustave Moreau, s'est passionné pour moi. Ayant trouvé chez son maître "La Femme pauvre"..., ce livre l'a mordu au coeur, blessé incurablement » (Journal de L. Bloy, 16 mars 1904). Naît alors une indéfectible amitié entre les deux artistes. Cependant lorsqu'en 1905 Rouault expose au Salon d'Automne "Monsieur et Madame Poulot" inspiré du roman de Bloy, la réaction de celui-ci est violente: « ... Cet artiste qu'on croyait capable de peindre des séraphins, semble ne plus concevoir que d'atroces et vengeresses caricatures. L'infamie bourgeoise opère en lui une si violente répercussion d'horreur que son art paraît blessé à mort. Il a voulu faire mes Poulot personnages de "La Femme Pauvre". À aucun prix je ne veux de cette illustration. Il s'agissait de faire ce qu'il y a de plus tragique : deux bourgeois, mâle et femelle, complets : candides, pacifiques, miséricordieux et sages à mettre l'écume de la peur à la bouche des chevaux des constellations. Il a fait deux assassins de petite banlieue. » Nul mieux que Raïssa Maritain ne sut décrire l'amitié complexe qui unit le jeune peintre et le vieil écrivain, analysant à la fois "la raison profonde de leur dissentiment" en citant une lettre de Bloy à Rouault de 1907 : « Vous êtes attiré par le laid exclusivement. " comme leur "admiration" qu'elle explique par "la vive foi de l'un et de l'autre, (...) l'élévation et la rigueur de leur conscience d'artistes". "Combien de fois - écrit-elle - dans les années qui ont suivi, n'avons-nous pas vu Rouault chez Bloy, debout, appuyé contre le mur, un léger sourire sur ses lèvres closes, le regard au loin, le visage apparemment impassible, mais d'une pâleur qui allait s'accentuant lorsque la question de la peinture moderne était abordée. Rouault pâlissait, mais gardait jusqu'au bout un silence héroïque. Et toujours, malgré cette irréductible opposition sur la question même de son art, il est resté fidèle à Léon Bloy. On eût dit qu'il venait chercher chez Bloy les accusations mêmes qui tourmentaient en lui ce qu'il avait de plus cher, - non pour les soumettre à une discussion quelconque, mais pour éprouver contre elles la force de l'instinct qui l'entraînait vers l'inconnu et qui devait triompher de tout obstacle." ("A l'aube de nouvelles amitiés" in La Nouvelle Relève, octobre 1941)C'est le même Léon Bloy, respectueux mais immuablement critique à l'égard de son jeune ami, qui lui dédicace ce portrait d'une sainte, cette élégie de la beauté qu'il ne saura jamais percevoir dans l'oeuvre de Rouault.

Als Mitglied des elitären Österreichischen Alpenklubs sowie des Österreichischen Winter-Sport-Clubs schuf er sowohl für den Alpenverein als auch für die Naturfreunde, die gänzlich verschiedene ideologische Ausrichtungen hatten, Werke mit einschlägigen Motiven. Seine Bergbilder mit feinen Farbstimmungen, teils mit lichtdurchfluteten Szenerien, waren zwischen 1905 und 1911 in Wien auf den Ausstellungen im Künstlerhaus und im Hagenbund häufig vertreten; seine Kunstdrucke und Schulwandtafeln in Form von Originallithographien waren äußerst beliebt. Nach seinen Vorlagen entstanden 1909 auch drei Fliesenbilder für die neue Halle des Salzburger Hauptbahnhofs und 1910 ein großes Wandbild (Helenental mit Weilburg) für das Hotel Herzoghof in Baden.

        La Voiture Th. Schneider, 1912 gagne à Dieppe Dinant et à la Sarthe vitesse et régularité / Magneto Bosch Corburateur Claudel Roues Riley

      Mabileau & Co, Paris 1912 - Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition. Theophile Schneider, formerly of the Rochet/Schneider Company, began building his own cars in 1910. This car, a 2.8 litre 4 cylinder model, had an unusual radiator placement, on the dashboard. All pre-1914 Schneiders were built in this way. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various, mostly hurried events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Clearly an enthusiast himself, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings depicted many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
