        Classici del Ridere. Formiggini. Raccolta. 123 Volumi.

      - Genova - Roma, A. F. Formiggini Editore, 1913 - 1938. Stampata con estrema cura anche nella veste formale dei volumi (la copertina della Collezione è di Adolfo De Carolis), il Formiggini vi raccolse le opere dei classici di ogni cultura, di ogni tempo, che avessero una qualche attinenza col ridere. Così, classici italiani e stranieri, antichi, moderni e contemporanei, prosatori, poeti dialettali, commediografi si alternarono nella Collezione. Questa Collana, fin dalla progettazione nel 1912, fu da lui considerata la più vasta e la più caratteristica manifestazione della sua attività editoriale. La Collana, che costituisce una delle principali realizzazioni dell'editore modenese, è caratterizzata dalla presenza in ogni testo di numerose xilografie, commissionate a incisori dell'epoca. In essa si produssero nobilmente molti dei più noti xilografi e bianconeristi italiani (A. De Carolis, Emilio Mantelli, G. Doré). La Collana è formata da 105 numeri pubblicati dal 1913 al 1938. Noi ne possediamo 123 compresi il nr. 00 "La ficozza filosofica del Fascismo" e gli ultimi due numeri 106 e 107 stampati a Milano da Bietti. ed i seguenti doppi: n. 2, 4, 6, 7, 14, 15, 16, 24, 25, 32, 33, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 71, 79, 93), (numeri tripli: 62, 63, 64).

        The Tale of Lohengrin, Knight of the Swan,

      London: G. G. Harrap & Co., , [1913]. by T. W. Rolleston. Presented by Willy Pogàny. Narrow quarto. Original full vellum, gilt lettered spine, gilt lettered and decorated front cover, pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, pictorial endpapers. Frontispiece and illustrated half-title, title, contents, and introduction leaves, 8 tipped-in colour plates, 45 full-page illustrations, elaborate decorative borders and smaller illustrations throughout, printed on pale grey paper. Very small blemish to gilt motif on front cover, front cover slightly sprung. An excellent copy, with the additional etched plate in its original envelope. First Pogany edition, number 107 of 525 copies signed by Pogany. "His illustrations to Wagner's Tannhäusser (1911), Parsifal (1912) and Lohengrin (1913) may be preferred to Rackham's Wagner illustrations as they have a strong Germanic fin de siècle feel about them. A mixture of colour plates, lithographs and line drawings on heavy grey paper, they were a popular and unusual feature of the Christmas market of those years" (Felmingham, The Illustrated Gift Book 1880-1930, 1988, p. 60). This copy has the additional etched plate signed by Pogany, showing Wagner as an ancient seer surrounded by his creations.

        The Interpretation of Dreams.

      London: George Allen & Company, Ltd.,, 1913. Authorised Translation of Third Edition with Introduction by A. A. Brill. Octavo. Original grey-blue cloth, spine and front cover lettered gilt. Spine slightly faded, tips a little rubbed, newspaper clippings to verso of front free endpaper and first blank. A beautiful, unusually bright copy. First edition in English, first impression, first state (UK issue). With the publisher's tipped-in label stating that the sale of the book is "limited to Members of the Medical, Scholastic, Legal and Clerical professions". Intended to be a medical handbook, this book is not often found in such nice condition, and is the scarcer of the two states (the other being the first edition sheets bound with the Macmillan cancel title page for issue in America). It was originally published as Die Traumdeutung (Lepizig & Vienna 1900), and this translation by Abraham Brill, the Austrian-born psychiatrist and the first psychoanalyst to practice in the United States, introduced Freud to English-speaking world for the first time. "This is unquestionably Freud's greatest single work. It contains all the basic components of psychoanalytic theory and practice; the erotic nature of dreams, the 'Oedipus complex', the libido, and the rest; all related to the background of the 'unconscious', later to be called the 'sub-conscious'" (PMM).

        Photograph Album Documenting Life at The Interlaken School

      La Porte, Indiana: The Interlaken School, 1913. Photograph Album. Very Good. Presentation album is about 4" x 7" with 33 linen leaves each with one mounted photograph measuring about 3" x 5", all captioned in the negative. Photos are in nice shape with some slight curling; one with a small scuff. Minor wear to album. After returning home from attending Heidelberg and Freiburg Universities in Germany, Edward Rumley created one of the first progressive boarding schools in the United States in 1907 "to teach boys to live" by focusing on "hand and muscle work as well as brain work and development of the mind." The curriculum was based upon tenants expounded by Leo Tolstoy and Germanic ideas of a "new order." The school was highly regarded by both educators and the public and quite successful until anti-German sentiment forced its closure when the U.S. entered World War One. Photos include students working in fields and shops, boys constructing school facilities, the baseball and football teams, temporary tent lodging, and more.

        The Passionate Friends.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1913. A Novel. Octavo. Original green vertically-ribbed cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt with vine motifs in blind, top edge gilt. Spine gently rolled, extremities lightly bumped and rubbed, very faint spotting to edges and prelims, free endpapers browned. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author "To Vernon Lee. fr[om] H. G. And next time I shall insist" on the front free endpaper. A notable association copy: Vernon Lee was the pseudonym of Violet Paget (1856-1935), art historian, author of supernatural fiction, and Wells's fellow contributor to the Yellow Book. The two became friends in 1904, finding themselves politically as well as artistically aligned. Lee's collection of philosophical essays, Gospels of Anarchy (1908), is dedicated to him: "Of all the subjects she considers in Gospels of Anarchy, H. G. Wells came closest to sharing Vernon Lee's vision of a world ruled by an intellectual elite, the philosopher-kings whom Wells, in A Modern Utopia (1905), called the Samurai" (Colby, Vernon Lee: A Literary Biography, p. 279). The Passionate Friends was Wells's last book before the onset of war in 1914, an event which led to the break-up of his friendship with Lee following a vituperative exchange of letters in the Nation and the Labour Leader which "reverberated internationally" (Colby, p. 289). Wells was an enthusiastic supporter of the Allied cause, whereas Lee was an outspoken pacifist. "The full range of her influence on other writers and artists is, as yet, unappreciated. Vernon Lee deserves to be recognized for the exceptional life she led as a woman of letters" (ODNB).

        Original caricature signed, believed to be of the French composer Paul Dukas (1865-1935)

      - Octavo, 189 x 149 mm. Dated 1913. Blue pen and wash. Slightly worn and foxed, especially to verso; creased at upper edge and central fold; remnants of adhesive to upper corners of verso.Together with:A handsome postcard photograph of Caruso seated, stylishly dressed, with cigarette and cane in hand. 136 x 84 mm., with the name of the photographer's studio (Brogi), printed to lower right edge of recto, the name and London address of the publisher Breitkopf and Härtel and "Printed in Germany" printed to verso. Slightly browned; remnants of adhesive to verso. "With his original treatment of traditional forms, his highly inventive approach to musical drama, and his importance as a teacher and writer, [Paul Dukas] occupies a central position in French musical history. Dukas was not only an influence on many French 20th-century composers and others such as Zemlinsky and Berg, but also remains important in his own right. His reputation rests on only a small number of compositions, notably the Piano Sonata, Ariane et Barbe-bleue, the ballet La Péri and L'apprenti sorcier. Dukas's influence as a critic, from 1892 to 1932, can be compared with Debussy's; his informed opinions reveal great sensitivity to the musical and aesthetic changes that took place during the period."

        IN POWDER AND CRINOLINE

      [London]: Hodder & Stoughton, [, 1913]. n. This is an attractively bound copy of Quiller-Couch's third collection of fairy tales, with consistently winning illustrations by Nielsen. It appears to be a variant of the Edition De Luxe, with two more plates than the trade edition, but it is not signed by Nielsen, as the 500 copies of that edition were supposed to be. The cheeky, somewhat campy illustrations here strongly reflect the influence of Aubrey Beardsley, an artist much admired by Nielsen. An English writer and critic of Cornish descent who published under the pseudonym "Q," Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch (1863-1944) is perhaps best rememberd as the compiler of the monumental "Oxford Book of English Verse 1250-1900." The fairy tales in the present volume are "Minon-Minette," "Felicia or the Pot of Pinks," "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," "Rosanie or the Inconstant Prince," "The Man Who Never Laughed," "John and the Ghosts," and "The Czarina's Violet.". 318 x 229 mm. (12 1/2 x 9"). xii, 163, [1] pp. FINE GREEN MOROCCO BY SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with single gilt fillet border, upper cover with gilt titling; raised bands, gilt-ruled compartments, turn-ins with single gilt fillet, marbled endleaves, top edge gilt. WITH 26 COLOR PLATES BY KAY NIELSEN tipped-in on gray stock with decorative frames, each with captioned and decorated tissue guards. Two leaves with short closed tear to fore margin, slight browning to edges of leaves, additional trivial defects, but QUITE A FINE COPY, clean internally and in an unworn binding.

        W. L. BEHRENS COLLECTION Part III SWORD FITTINGS, TSUBA, METAL 1913 1st Ed. 1/100

      London GLENDINING & CO. 1913. GLENDINING & CO.: London, 1913. W. L. BEHRENS COLLECTION Part III SWORD FITTINGS, TSUBA, METAL. Catalogue by Henri L. Joly. This is the ORIGINAL CATALOGUE, printed in 3 VOLUMES. Published by GLENDINING & CO., LONDON, MCMXIII-MCMXIV (1913-1914). FIRST EDITION, LIMITED TO ONLY 100 COPIES, THIS BEING COPY #58. From the Copyright / Limitation page (found in Volume One of this Three Volume Set of Part III of the W.L. Behrens Collection): "Printed to ONE HUNDRED COPIES ONLY of which this is NUMBER 58 by Riddle, Smith and Duffus, Victoria Works, Forest Hill, S.E. / COLLOTYPE PLATES by the Photophane Co., Cranfield Works, Brockley, London, S.E. / PUBLISHED BY Glendining & Co., Ltd., 7 Argyll Street, London, W." Three Volumes, Original Printed Paper Wrappers / Softcovers, 10x12 inches. The three volumes contain 125 pages of Text (pages numbered consecutively) plus a few prelim pages in Volume I (Title-Page, Limitation Page, Preface) plus a Printer's Colophon page at the end of Volume III; each volume also has a front and rear blank endpaper. The three volumes also contain a total of 83 COLLOTYPE PLATES, each printed on its own page and each with its own PRINTED TISSUE GUARD. The original W. L. Behrens Collection was published in four parts, each part consisting of 3 volumes. The four parts are: Part I: Netsuke, Part II: Lacquer and Inro, Part III: Sword Fittings, Tsuba, Metal, and Part IV: Chinese and Japanese Miscellanea, Buddhistic Section and Chinese Antiques, Varia. This original W. L. BEHRENS COLLECTION PART III : METAL, TSUBA, SWORD-FITTINGS, which I am offering, is the most difficult to find and the most sought after of the four part W.L. Behrens collection catalogues. Part III was reprinted in 1966 in a single volume in a smaller format and without the dazzling quality of collotype plates (a much cheaper printing process was used). The 1966 reprint can be found, but this ORIGINAL 3 VOLUME CATALOGUE, printed in an edition of only 100 numbered copies, is almost Impossible to Find. The set comes in a custom made box with blue cloth covered boards, leather spine label titled in gilt (H. L. Joly / The W. L. BEHRENS COLLECTION / MCMXIIII - MCMXIV), snaps on the front flaps, and inner tie strings. I do not know who had the custom box made. CONDITION: The three volumes are in VERY GOOD condition. The covers have some spine creases from use, light wear to the spine ends, light corner creases, some spine sunning and some offsetting; the front cover of Volume III has a horizontal crease across its face and a 2 1/2 inch closed tear starting at its bottom edge that has been repaired on the backside with clear tape; internally, there are some light signs of handling, a small crease or scrape, and a few corner tip creases here and there; Volume III has a crease across its front blank endpaper; overall the inner pages are tight, bright, clean and unmarked. ALL the Collotype Plates and their printed tissue guards are present and gorgeous. A solid, complete, very nice set. The custom made case is in Good Condition with some scrapes, rubs and general wear; the leather spine label is worn and has some scratches; overall the case is solid and still doing the job its previous owner had it made to do. SCARCE. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This item will be heavy to ship and will require substantial additional shipping charges. After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed. Thanks. Very Good

        Photographs of the Milky Way and Comets made with the Six-inch Willard Lens and Crocker Telescope during the Years 1892 to 1895.

      Sacramento Richardson 1913 - (30 x 23,5 cm). 46 S. Mit 129 Tafeln. Original-Leinwandband. (Publ. of the Lick Observatory. Vol. XI). Erste Ausgabe. - "Of great importance was the beginning Barnard made in photographing the Milky Way. It can fairly be said that, although photography had been used in astronomy to a limited and somewhat experimental extent, it was not until Barnard's wholesale use of it that the technique became a vital and spectacular part of regular astronomical observing. His initial labors in this area were not easy, because funds for equipment were scarce, and he was the junior member under a somewhat crusty and autocratic director, E. S. Holden. Barnard was obliged to use a small telescopic camera, contrived from a 2 1/2-inch portrait lens with a focal length of thirty-one inches, initially strapped to the side of a 6 1/2-inch telescope for want of a suitable mounting and guiding arrangement. With so small a telescope, exposures were necessarily very long; moreover, photographic materials were still rather primitive and insensitive. Nevertheless, Barnard's Milky Way photographs revealed a wealth of both bright and dark nebulae, and star-clouds hitherto unknown. The long exposures (up to six hours) were made with extreme difficulty and required great patience, for the guiding telescopes were without illuminated reticles. He was obliged to use fine iron wires for cross hairs, and to throw the image of a bright star out of focus, maintaining equal intensity in all four quadrants separated by the wires' silhouette. Many of these remarkable photographs of the Milky Way and clusters, as well as of comets, were later assembled into Volume 11 of the Publications of the Lick Observatory" (DSB). - Vorsatz gestempelt und im Falz gebrochen.

Zu I: Erste Ausgabe von Moseleys berühmter Arbeit zur Bestimmung der Ordnungszahl der Elemente, ein Meilenstein in der Entwicklung der Atomphysik. - "Moseley, working under Rutherford an Manchester, used the method of X-ray spectroscopy devised by the Braggs to calulate variations in the wavelength of the rays emitted by each element. These he was able to arrange in a series according to the nuclear charge of each element. Thus if the nuclear charge of hydrogen is 1, in helium it is 2, in lithium 3, and so on by regular progression to uranium as 92. These figures Moseley called atomic numbers. He pointed out that they also represented a corresponding increase in extra-nuclear electrons and that it is the number and arrangement of these electrons rather than the atomic weight that determines the properties of an element. It was now possible to base the periodical table on a firm foundation, and to state with confidence that the number of elements up to uranium is limited to 92. When Moseley's table was completed, six atomic numbers had no corresponding elements; but Moseley himself was able to predict the nature of four of the missing elements"(PMM). - DSB 9, 542; PMM 407; Norman 1559. - Zu II: Erste Ausgabe dieser bedeutenden Arbeit zur Verbesserung von Rutherfords Atommodell. - "Bohr's three-part paper postulated the existence of stationary states of an atomic system whose behavior could be described using classical mechanics, while the transition of the system from one stationary state to another would represent a non-classical process accompanied by emission or absorption of one quantum of homogeneous radiation, the frequency of which was related to its energy by Planck’s equation" (Norman). - DSB 2, 239; PMM 411; Norman 258. - Vorsätze gestempelt.
