Erste französische Ausgabe von Andersens Vision einer utopischen Weltstadt. FIRST FRENCH EDITION OF ANDERSEN\'S VISION OF A UTOPIAN WORLD CITY. Hendrik Christian Andersen (1872 - 1940) was a Norwegian-American sculptor, painter and urban planner. He was born in Bergen, Norway, and emigrated as an infant with his family to Newport, Rhode Island. As a young artist, he mingled among Newport\'s wealthy elite, and spent some time as Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney\'s art teacher. At the age of 21, Andersen travelled to Europe, eventually settling in Rome. There he pursued his artistic interest in monumental classically inspired pieces, believing that they stimulated in the viewer a desire for self-improvement. He devoted much of his time designing a perfect \'World City\', filled with art, which would motivate humanity to achieve a near Utopian state. His urban planning philosophy is evident in his 1913 \"A World Center of Communication\". This enormous tome (the text weighed over ten pounds) was written with Ernest Hébrard and grew out of Andersen’s earlier writing, \"The Fountain of Life\". Central to the work was Andersen’s belief that art, more specifically monumental Beaux-Arts architecture, could bring about world peace and international harmony. The plan called for the creation of a central world capital. In his words, the city would be \"a fountain of overflowing knowledge to be fed by the whole world of human endeavour in art, science, religion, commerce, industry, and law; and in turn to diffuse throughout the whole of humanity as though it were one grand, divine body conceived by God, the vital requirements which would renew its strength, protect its rights, and enable it to attain greater heights through a concentration of world effort.”Evident in the treatise is Andersen’s philosophy that art could change humanity and produce perfection. While roundly criticized by urban planners of the time for its political naïveté coupled with an over emphasis on the monumental, the work demonstrates an appreciation of the political and social conflicts necessitated by the rampant nationalism of the early 20th Century and sought to use art to bring about an Utopian world. Andersen’s view of the power of art and architecture to transform society can be seen as a precursor to similar concepts advanced later in the 20th Century by a variety of urban planners including Le Corbusier in his Contemporary City.In 1899 Andersen met Henry James the American expatriate writer. Although James was almost 30 years his senior the two developed a close relationship that was to last until James’ death in 1916. While the precise nature of the relationship is still unclear and may always be so—the two actually met on just a few occasions, and then for only brief periods of time—they exchanged numerous letters, which evidence a close, loving, homoerotic bond. Despite such affection, James lost patience with Andersen when the sculptor tried to interest him in the grandiose plans for the \"World City\". James warned Andersen that he was slipping into megalomania with his plans for the \"World City\". Andersen bequeathed his home, studio, papers and more than 400 pieces of his work to the Italian Government. The home in Rome has been renovated and now is the museum Museo Hendrik Christian Andersen located at Via Pasquale Stanislao Mancini, 20 (piazzale Flaminio).The book is in two parts. The first deals with the history of the city and monumental architecture, and seeks inspiration in classical and contemporary notions of city planning - Paris and Washington DC feature prominently. The second part details Andersen\'s imaginary urban landscape, complete with works of art, for the \'World City\'. Olympic stadia, galleries for the arts and sciences, as well as government buildings are all outlined, and placed upon a defined grid plan with an emphasis on a grand central avenue acting as the axis of the city.

        My Attainment Of The Pole Being the Record of the Expedition that First Reached the Boreal Center 1907 - 1909, With the Final Summary of the Polar Controversy

      New York: Mitchell Kennerley 1913 - New York: Mitchell Kennerley, 1913. Third Edition. 8vo - 20cm. [xx], 610pp., Index (8pp.), Publisher's Advertisments (2pp.). With portrait frontispiece of Frederick Cook and 31 black-and-white photographic and other illustrations, charts, and drawings. Publisher's light green cloth, lettered in black on upper cover and spine. A Near Fine and complete copy signed and inscribed by Frederick A. Cook on the front free fly leaf. In 1907, Cook accompanied an expedition northward, prepared to attempt to reach the Pole if the opportunity arose, and according to his own story he claimed to have done so, leaving his party accompanied only by a few Eskimos, early in 1908. The announcement of his success was made just five days before Peary cabled his news of victory, and a tempestuous controversy immediately broke out. The public was disposed to believe Cook's claim, and he received a hearty reception at Copenhagen. Scientific opinion was more reserved, however, and after a careful consideration of the evidence, Cook's claim was dismissed. This edition recounts Cook's description of his attainment of the North Pole and his return journey. It also presents Cook's perspective of the keys to the controversy with regard to his and Peary's claim to have reached the North Pole, the Mt. McKinley Bribery, The Dunkle-Loose Forgery and how the Geographic Society prostitued itself. This book is a fascinating read surrounding the controversies surround Cook from his perspective. WITH: A Very Rare original tipped in post card mailer with an removeable stub stating: "In the interest of fair play - Dr. Cook's book requests his friends to use their influence to endeavor to bring about a National Investigation of the Polar Attainment: in line with this effort he suggests that you detach, sign and mail the card below to your congressman, or better still, write him a personal letter." The stub and post card are still attached, with the card stating: ________________________1913 "To Congressman, Washington, D.C. Dear Sir. - The conquest of the North Pole has lifted the United States to a first position as a Nation of scientific pioneers. The controversy which followed is a blot on our Flag and it is a slur at our National Honor. From the Government purse and from private resources we have spent millions to reach the top of the Earth; it would appear therefore to be our duty as a nation to adjust the Polar contention in the eyes of the world. If Dr. Cook has reached the Pole, a year earlier than Peary, aas most Arctic Explorers believe, then the seeming endorsement and the pension of the Naval Officer is an injustice to Dr. Cook and an imposition on the Public; if both have reached the Pole then there should be a suitable recognition and reward extended to each. As one of thousands of American Citizens I beg of you to forward a movement which will bring about a National Investigation into this problem, with a suitable provision for a proper recognition. Respectfully, __________________" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Photo Album]: My Memory Book

      Ohio and Michigan. 1913-1936. Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 13". String-tied black cloth photo album with "My Memory Book" stamped in gilt on the front board. A collection of 382 black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 2.5" x 3.5" and 9" x 12" affixed to stiff black paper, along with related ephemera. A very good or better photo album with some chips and tears and with near fine photographs.The photo album and scrapbook belonging to Ohio native, Miriam Custis chronicling her life from her adolescence to life shortly after her college graduation. The album begins with childhood snapshots of Miriam, born September 5, 1913, in Finley, Ohio to the Reverend Dwight Lyman and Nettie Belle Hughes Custis. Sixteen photos show Miriam with a group of girls at what appears to be a summer camp for girls, swimming, playing the ukulele, and posing for silly photos. Custis attended Toronto High School (in Toronto, Ohio in Jefferson County, on the eastern edge of the state) and was accepted to Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio in 1930 where she obtained a teaching certificate after two years, and then transferred to Adrian College in Michigan. She kept a detailed account of her college life with programs from events and photographs with her college girlfriends. While she was at Adrian she was the president of the college's chapter of Delta Delta Delta with invitations, telegrams, photos of the Tri-Delta's car in the homecoming parade, and other sorority related ephemera. Custis documented Adrian's "Rejuvenation Party" which was a student celebration the week of homecoming which involved the men of her class drinking from bottles in what appear to be giant diapers. While at Adrian, Miriam met her future husband, Reverend Dr. Robert Harlan Cairns, who can be seen as her date throughout the album as well a photo of him preaching at the campus chapel. Custis graduated in 1934 with a degree in English and Latin and went on to teach in Ohio. There are photos of her graduation along with an alumni trip in 1936. According to her obituary, after college she "was involved in Christian education programs for children, mission work, and summer camps for troubled youth."A comprehensive look at a young woman's life, with an emphasis on her education, dating between 1913 until 1936. .

        Ms. Brief mit kleiner eigenh. Korrektur, eh. Nachschrift und U. („WSiemens").

      Berlin, 30. Juli 1913. - 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. An den Ingenieur Robert Schulze in Flensburg: „Wollen Sie mir bitte möglichst bald einige Daten über das Boot schicken, welche ich hier nicht feststellen kann, und zwar folgende: 1.) das Gesamtgewicht des Bootes mit allen Einrichtungen, sodann das Gewicht getrennt für die Hauptteile, also für das Boot selbst, für die Maschine, Kabel usw. 2.) das Gewicht der Wasserverdrängung. 3.) eine annähernde Angabe über den Rauminhalt des gesamten Bootes. Es ist natürlich die Frage, was man darunter versteht. Es scheint mir richtig zu sein, diejenige Begrenzung anzunehmen, welche durch das Abschlußgehäuse gegeben wird. Bezüglich der Frage der Vorbereitung für die nächste Versuchsperiode ist der Punkt der Sichtbarmachung des Bootes auf 20 km noch weiter zu erwägen [.]". – Der Sohn von Werner von Siemens war 1879 in die väterliche Firma Siemens & Halske in Berlin eingetreten und 1884 Teilhaber sowie nach dem Ausscheiden seines Vaters 1890 zur führenden Persönlichkeit des Unternehmens geworden. Er „förderte besonders die Glühlampenfabrikation, war Miterfinder der Tantallampe, erfand den Schnelltelegraphen, den elektrischen Bahnantrieb und die elektrische Fernsteuerung" (DBE). – Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf; beide Blatt jeweils in der rechten unteren Ecke etwas fleckig, die sechszeilige e. Nachschrift mit kleineren Tintenrissen.

        Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures

      1913. first edition. First Trade Edition in the Scarce Original Printed Dust JacketWith Forty-Four Mounted Color PlatesRACKHAM, Arthur. Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures. With an introduction by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch. London: William Heinemann, [1913]. First trade edition. Quarto ( 10 1/4 x 7 5/8 in; 261 x 193 mm). 43, [1] pp. Forty-four color plates (including frontispiece) mounted on tan paper, with descriptive tissue guards, and ten drawings in black and white.Publisher's gray-green cloth, front cover and spine pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt, top edge stained gray. Very slight discoloration on free end-papers from paste-downs. Ink name partially erased from the bookplate design on front paste-down, otherwise a very fine copy in the original brown paper dust jacket printed in black. A few small and neat repairs to extremities of dust jacket."Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures brings together a number of drawings unrelated in theme. Most of them, it is true, are drawings of the supernatural, of goblins, elves and fairies, and many are based on actual fairy tales; but there are also delightful straightforward drawings of children at the seaside or in the Broad Walk, Kensington Gardens; there is also the well-known 'Cupid's Alley' [the original of which is in the Tate Gallery], which illustrates verses by Austin Dobson, and there are subject pictures and landscapes of wide variety. It was important that such a book should be drawn together by an introductory essay, and natural for Rackham to invite [J.M.] Barrie to write it. The answer he received was cordial but disappointing: '24 June 1913. Dear Rackham, I wish I could, but I have promised to write two introductions this autumn, and had better not undertake more. Added to which I would be very bad at it as I have no skill in criticism. I am very glad to hear of the book and look forward to it. You have no greater admirer than myself, and few there are more warmly indebted to you. 'Yours very sincerely J.M. Barrie'. Rackham was fortunate in obtaining Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch as a substitute for Barrie. 'Q' not only admired Rackham's work; he also thoroughly understood a child's instinctive longing for the imaginative and fanciful. 'To this instant, constant, intellectual need of childhood no one in our day,' he wrote, 'has ministered so bountifully or so whole-heartedly as Mr. Rackham.' And Quiller-Couch was happy, too, in associating the random, impressionistic nature of much of the Book of Pictures with 'the wayward visions that tease every true artist's mind, while he bends over the day's work'". (Derek Hudson. Arthur Rackham. His Life and Work, pp. 97-98).Latimore and Haskell, pp. 41-42. Riall, p. 118.

Early ownership inscription on the front free endpaper: "C. H. Weisman, Spokane, Wash. 6/1/13"; this would appear to be a Dr C. H. Weisman (d. 1924). Slight "coffee cup" stain on back cover otherwise a very good copy. First edition in English, first printing, US issue; originally published as Die Traumdeutung (Lepizig & Vienna 1900). This important translation, by the Austrian-born psychiatrist, and the first psychoanalyst to practice in the United States, Abraham Brill, was published simultaneously in London and New York and was Freud's introduction to the English-speaking world. "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).

        [Photo Album]: My Memory Book

      Ohio and Michigan. 1913-1936. Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 13". String-tied black cloth photo album with "My Memory Book" stamped in gilt on the front board. A collection of 382 black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 2.5" x 3.5" and 9" x 12" affixed to stiff black paper, along with related ephemera. A very good or better photo album with some chips and tears and with near fine photographs.The photo album and scrapbook belonging to Ohio native, Miriam Custis chronicling her life from her adolescence to life shortly after her college graduation. The album begins with childhood snapshots of Miriam, born September 5, 1913, in Finley, Ohio to the Reverend Dwight Lyman and Nettie Belle Hughes Custis. Sixteen photos show Miriam with a group of girls at what appears to be a summer camp for girls, swimming, playing the ukulele, and posing for silly photos. Custis attended Toronto High School (in Toronto, Ohio in Jefferson County, on the eastern edge of the state) and was accepted to Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio in 1930 where she obtained a teaching certificate after two years, and then transferred to Adrian College in Michigan. She kept a detailed account of her college life with programs from events and photographs with her college girlfriends. While she was at Adrian she was the president of the college's chapter of Delta Delta Delta with invitations, telegrams, photos of the Tri-Delta's car in the homecoming parade, and other sorority related ephemera. Custis documented Adrian's "Rejuvenation Party" which was a student celebration the week of homecoming which involved the men of her class drinking from bottles in what appear to be giant diapers. While at Adrian, Miriam met her future husband, Reverend Dr. Robert Harlan Cairns, who can be seen as her date throughout the album as well a photo of him preaching at the campus chapel. Custis graduated in 1934 with a degree in English and Latin and went on to teach in Ohio. There are photos of her graduation along with an alumni trip in 1936. According to her obituary, after college she "was involved in Christian education programs for children, mission work, and summer camps for troubled youth."A comprehensive look at a young woman's life, with an emphasis on her education, dating between 1913 until 1936. .

Large quarto (1 1/4 x 9 inches; 286 x 228 mm.). 305, [1] pp. Twelve mounted plates, full-page black and white frontispiece, and thirty-one quarter-page black and white chapter headings. Publisher's quarter vellum over green buckram boards, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A near fine copy.Alexander William Kinglake's epic journey through the Ottoman Empire to Cairo, and his residence there as the plague tore through the city was undertaken by him in 1835. His account of the journey, which he entitled Eöthen was first published nine years later in 1844. Someone had once asked Winston Churchill’s advice on how to improve his prose style. "Read Kinglake," said Churchill. The word Eöthen, means ‘from the east’, and the book describes the author’s travels in what is now the Middle East. Apparently Churchill was right, in that Eöthen is easy to read and tells a gripping story. The title, as the author points out, is the hardest word in the book. There are 29 chapters, many of them indicating the places he went to, such as Constantinople, Cyprus, Cairo, Damascus, Palestine, The Dead Sea, Jerusalem, Egypt, and Lebanon.Sir Frank William BRANGWYN, R.A., R.W.S., R.B.A. (1867-1956) was an Anglo-Welsh artist, painter, water colorist, virtuoso engraver and illustrator, and progressive designer. Born in Bruges, Belgium where his father moved after winning a competition organized by the Belgian Guild of St. Thomas and St. Luke to design a parish church. In 1874 the family moved back to the United Kingdom. In 1936 Brangwyn presented Bruges with over 400 works, now in the Arents House Museum. In return the King of Belgium made Brangwyn Grand Officer of the Order of Leopold II, and Bruges made him Citoyen d'Honneur de Bruges He was knighted in 1941. Brangwyn died on 11 June 1956 at his home in Sussex.

Cependant Fernand Gregh a pu travailler sur les dix-neuf feuillets (100-118) qui manquent a notre manuscrit (cf. numéro précédent).

Bound by Leon Gruel (1840-1923) – famed French bookbinder. “Daphné (Deuxième Consultation du Docteur Noir) ŒUVRE POSTHUME Publiée d’Après le Manuscrit Oiriginal avec Une Préface et des Notes.” Librairie CH. Delagrave, 1913. Number eight (8) of forty (40) copies on Imperial Japon, from a total limited edition of 125. 12mo (179 x 112 mm); all edges gilt, in exquisite blue crushed levant morocco, stamped signed by Léon Gruel in gilt on the spine, beautiful wheat gilt coat of arms in the front cover, spine with five raised bands and gilt letters. Tipped-in with a collotype (295 x 195 mm unfolded) after one page 100 from the manuscript, known to be one of the 18 missing pages from the full manuscript held at the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris, such missing pages have been sought after for more than a century. Exceptionally scarce and rare. This exceptionally rare book features a collotype of one of the legendary lost manuscript pages from Alfred de Vigny’s final work, “Daphné.” By the time Vigny was 19, he began an outline of a tragedy glorifying the Greek emperor Julian Apostate. While Vigny later gave up on his intentions to write a tragedy devoted to the emperor, he did write a tribute to the emperor-philosopher in the form of his final published story, “Daphné”. However, due to Vigny’s fear of what response the public might give to the novel, he repeatedly refused to give the manuscript to his publisher, but rather continued to revise it. Vigny’s fanaticism towards the novel can be seen in the collotype tipped-in to this edition, with repeated cross-outs and rewrites. After his death, Vigny left the manuscript to his friend Louis Ratisbonne. It was not shared with the wider public until 1912 when Fernand Gregh shared the text with readers of the Paris Review. This edition is in very good condition with only minor wear to the boards and a small crack beginning along the front hinge of the cover. The tipped-in page is after the manuscript which was stained by the author in creation, the sheet has some small tears and one which has been expertly repaired. Alfred de Vigny (1797 – 1863). Vigny was one of the key figures in the French Romanticism movement.Leon Gruel (1840-1923). Leon Gruel’s prosperous book binding company was founded in 1811 by his grandfather, Isidore Desforges. Gruel was not the sole proprietor of the company until 1890. During his time, Gruel focused much of his work on imitating the works of old masters, as seen in this book. Gruel specialized in engraving and modeling leather in the Gothic style.
