Sleight, Mary Breck.
[New York, R.F. Fenno & Company, undated; ca. 1912]. Publisher's trial or sample binding, without any printed text. - Size of the binding: 5 1/2 inches x 8 in., with blank endpapers, and the entire text block (of nearly 300 pages) blank. There is no printed material in this trial or sample (mock-up or dummy) bookbinding. The Mary B. Sleight title: "When the British held the Hudson", was published by Fenno, New York, in 1912, at that point it was titled: "At the manor: When the British held the Hudson", this full title is not present on this copy. Gray cloth with the titling in black on the spine and in red on the front cover with a design in green, red, black & white on gray, on the front cover, showing a ship with the British flag, against the riverside, with a lady in period dress, holding binoculars, standing near a tree on the opposite bank. The spine shows a small abrasion in the titling area, light wear to spine ends, outer hinges, cover corners, edges. A near fine copy. Rare item, very few of these early publisher's trial or sample bindings still exist in decent condition. The published book itself is very scarce. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Régnier (de) Henri 1864 1936
- 1 manuscrit autographe signé 8 In-4 [1912] feuillets 5 et 8 coupés en deux à la pliure centrale, effrangés, trous d’épingle. Brouillon, avec ratures et corrections, d'une chronique littéraire intitulée «Lecture d'été», dédiée à l'ouvrage posthume Réflexions sur quelques poètes [paru en 1912], du poète symboliste Jean Moréas (1856/1910). Il y témoigne son admiration pour l'auteur, même s'il ne partage pas toujours sa pensée, au sujet de Victor Hugo notamment : «Moréas consacre à Hugo quelques pages amusantes, mais qui sont loin de nous donner le jugement véritable que portait sur l'auteur de La Légende des Siècles, l'auteur des Syrtes. A vrai dire, ce silence n'est peut-être pas extrêmement regrettable. Moréas, en effet, prisant assez peu les partis modernes, et Hugo ne l'enthousiasmant guère [.]». Henri de Régnier excuse toutefois Moréas : «Le désintérêt où il nous tenait était si franc, si naturel, si naïf, que l'on ne pouvait vraiment pas lui en vouloir. On lui passait cette négation de tant de talent parce qu'il en avait lui-même beaucoup». Il termine par la citation jugée «énigmatique» de Moréas, qu'il tente de décrypter : «Régnier imite mes stances, mais ce n'est pas cela du tout». Un intéressant passage sur l'influence de son oeuvre par le poète. Poète et romancier, membre de l'Académie Française. Ami de Pierre Louÿs et de José Maria de Heredia dont il épouse l'une des filles.

2009-03-16 13:11:40
A unique look at human sexuality and literary Romantic love in the early part of the twentieth century during the colonial and modernist eras. As noted by the famous French philosopher Michel Foucault in his "repressive hypothesis," the age of Victorian repression clearly produced non-traditional expressions of lust. The epistolary consists of an original diary and correspondence between two lovers from 1912 to approximately 1916. It is written primarily in English with some excerpts in Italian. The primary diarist is presumed to be an Italian officer during the colonial era of the early 20th century involving Italy, Britain and the "Mad Mullah" in the Benadir region of East Africa. The other correspondent is probably a British lady living in Tuscany at the time. The epistolary includes more than one hundred original drawings of various sexual acts, most of which are in color and include detailed descriptions of the scenes depicted. Some images are watercolors, some pastels, and others are simple pencil sketches. The size and type of paper used varies greatly. The letters were bound at least twice. The current binding is red leather with raised bands on the spine, and gilt decorations on cover and spine. The volume comes in slipcase and it measures approximately 20x30 cm. The first and last few pages have some stains but most of the letters and drawings are remarkably well preserved. Scans of some of the drawings and pages are available on request. ; Curiosa.

Koch, Robert -
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 therefro … [Click Below for Full Description]

F. Warne & Co 1912 - First edition. 12mo. Grey paper covered boards, lettered in green and with pictorial onlay on the upper cover. In the original printed glassine dustwrapper. A fine copy in its printed glassine dustwrapper. The wrapper is in very good condition with a couple of minor chips to edges. Pictorial endpapers, 14 colour illustrations and many small line drawings. On sending the manuscript for Tod to her publisher's Potter wrote of it "I think this story is amusing". It differs from her other stories in that the principal characters are villains. The opening section of the original manuscript read "I am quite tired of making goody goody books" whilst the book on publication read, "I have made many books about well behaved people." It differs also in that it has fewer colour illustrations, introduces the use of line drawings and moves away from the style of short paragraphs used in the early tales.

Produced in very small numbers, this is an abridged version of the final book, slimmer, and with fewer pages.

As with similar books produced after national disasters, a portion of the proceeds from sales of the volume were earmarked for the support of the the survivors. Profusely illustrated. Some childish scrawing to the endpapers, and some wear to covers, but less than usual for this book, which is usually found in poor condition.

Struck at the U. S. Mint for Ambrose Swasey of the Rowfant Club, Cleveland, Ohio (1912). # 33 of 170. From the Clark Bibliography of Rowfant Club Publications (p. 74; 1925): "[John] Hay Medal designed and executed by Victor David Brenner, 1912, lettered 'John Hay/the Rowfant Club, Cleveland'; obverse, bust of John Hay; reverse, female figure with globe of the Americas and rolled chart of China coastline, with monogram V. D. B., lettered 'Open door in the Far East.' Issued [Cleveland] 1912. Bronze medal, 3" in diameter, 3/16" thick [.] 170 examples were struck, each numbered on the edge. This medal was the gift of Ambrose Swasey [1846-1937], past president of the Club. An example was presented to each member of the Club at the time of its issuance. One of the best examples of Brenner's excellent work. It was struck in bronze at the U. S. Mint." This example lacks the original morocco case & printed descriptive circular. This circular is quite rare & we will quote it in full from the Rowfant Club's archival copy: "When it was decided by the Rowfant Club to add a medal to its list of publications, the best subject was not far to seek. John Hay imposed himself. He was a great man, a man honorable and honored by his country and by the world as a statesman and diplomat, and he was a writer [The Bread Winners] and a reader and a lover of books. To Rowfanters, he was a Cleveland man, an honorary member of the Club, a man in sympathy with the Club's aims, indulgent of the Club's foibles.

Swain, E[dmund] G[ill].
Cambridge: W. Heffer & Sons Ltd., 1912 - Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-187 [188: printer's imprint], original pictorial blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. 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.
