        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).Numeri mancanti: 51, 69, 74, 82, 96, 98, (101 - 102 -103 Le dame Galanti) 104.

        Across Unknown South America.

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1913 - 2 volumes, large octavo (245 × 180 mm). Sumptuous Havana pebble-grained morocco publisher's presentation binding, title gilt to the spine and to the front board together with the coats of arms of Chile, Argentina, Peru and Bolivia gilt, and that of Brazil placed centrally and rendered in colour in gilt, and silver with onlays of blue and green morocco, all edges gilt, wide gilt foliate roll to the turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Slight shelf-wear, light scatter of foxing, else very good. Photogravure portrait frontispiece to volume I, and 170 other plates from photographs by the author, and a further 8 coloured coloured plates from his watercolours, one mounted as the frontispiece to volume II, full-page route map, and folding chart of the passage of the Arinos and Arinos-Juruena Rivers. First edition, presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the first blank of volume I; "To Sir George Lewis, Bart. with sincere regards of Henry Savage-Landor, London Oct. 3 1918." An account of Savage-Landor's hair-raising exploits in South America, from Rio de Janeiro: "he trekked inland into the Northern Mato Grosso in the company of an unruly band of porters who ditched his possessions and stole provisions whenever the opportunity arose. Several times they mutinied and demanded to be released from his employ, only to realize that alone they had no hope of finding their way home" (Howgego). Landor mapped the Rio Arinos, which he descended to the Rio Juruena, continuing to the Rio Tapajós, and entered the Amazon after a "harrowing journey" in which they were rescued from their sinking raft by a rubber planter on his annual excursion upriver. The party descended the Amazon to its mouth at Belém, then re-ascended the river to Peru, crossed the Andes to Lima, thence to Cusco and La Paz, and back to the Pacific at Antofagasta; "There he shipped to Valparaiso, crossed the Andes for the fourth time and made his way overland to Buenos Ayres. The total distance was reckoned by Landor to be 13,750 miles." Savage-Landor was one of the last explorers in the grand style; "Landor's want of training and his impatience to press on with all speed made him an unreliable surveyor, and there were those who impugned the veracity of his hair-raising escapes; but in energy and resourcefulness, in courage and power of endurance, he was the equal of any of the previous generation of great explorers. He scorned special equipment and commonly appeared on a mountain or in a jungle as he would in Bond Street. His contempt for ropes and nailed boots nearly cost him his life mountaineering on several occasions" (ODNB). A superb copy of this remarkable narrative. Howgego IV, L6 (C).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. („Renoir").

      Paris, 29. IX. 1913. - 8vo. 2 SS. In zittriger Altersschrift verfasste Bitte an einen Bekannten, der während seiner Abwesenheit für ihn ein Auge auf das Haus bei Nizza halten soll, da der Verwalter verstorben sei. „Mon cher ami | La mort de notre fermier nous met dans un grand embarras. La maison ne sera pas tout à fait seul quoique Louise sera là mardi ou jeudi mais je me permet de compter sur vous pour faire jeter un coup d’œil de temps en temps du reste s’il arrivai quelque chose Louise irai vous trouver car nous ne pourrons pas arriver avant 12 ou 19 jours. Ma femme se joint à moi pour vous envoyer à tous les deux nos meilleures amit[i]és ." Renoir litt bereits seit 1892 an rheumatoider Arthritis, die ihm das Malen – und Schreiben – zunehmend erschwerte. Trotz Krankheit malte er unter grossen Schmerzen unaufhörlich weiter; zum Schluss musste er sich die Pinsel an die Hände binden lassen. – 1907 war Renoir nach Cagnes-sur-Mer bei Nizza in das Landhaus mit grossem Garten ‚Les Collettes’ gezogen.

        British Columbia - Sixty Years of Progress: A History *SIGNED, NUMBERED AND UNREAD, FULL LEATHER-BOUND COPY*

      British Columbia: British Columbia Historical Association. Hardcover. Number 216 of only 350 signed copies of this full leather-bound edition. Signed by co-author R.E. Gosnell. "Few publications, if any, of similar size and excellence have been produced in Canada..." - From Editor's Foreward. Part One is made up of 210 pages and eighteen chapters which constitute "... a survey of events from the earliest times down to the Union of the Crown Colony of British Columbia with the Dominion of Canada." Part Two is "... a history, mainly political and economic, of the Province since Confederation up to the present time." Part One is preceded by dozens of tissue-protected black and white portraits of individuals influential in the early history of the province, complete with their brief biographies upon the tissue. Part One is likewise followed by dozens of tissue-protected portraits of "Leading men in judicial and other capacities." Part Two is comprised of eighteen chapters over 226 pages, plus 5 pages of addenda. This part is again followed by dozens of tissue protected portraits of "Some of the men conspicuous as present day factors in development." Top edge gilt. Embossed decorations upon front board and back strip. Crisp gilt lettering upon backstrip. Marbled endpapers. Unread. Exceptionally clean, bright, and unmarked with no wear. Handsome suede leather exterior appears virtually as fresh as the day it was applied over 90 years ago.

The vintage and exceedingly fine condition of this copy easily rank it as one of the most impressive volumes we have ever offered. . Fine. 1913. Limited Edition.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wohl Berlin, 18. X. 1913.. 1 S. 4to.. An den Wiener Volksbildungsverein, um drei Mißverständnisse auszuräumen: "Aus Ihrem Brief entnehme ich, daß Sie mich und meinen Brief mißverstehen. Vielleicht hätte ich deutlicher reden sollen. Ich will es also nachtragen: I: Den gewisse Vortrag 'Aus meiner Werkstatt' will ich nicht halten, weil ich der Ansicht bin, die Neigung des Wiener Volkes gehe ohnedies auf's Persönliche, statt aufs Sachliche und es wäre daher richtig, diese Neigung zu unterdrücken; nicht aber, sie heranzubilden. Man kann von mir nicht verlangen, das[s] ich am falschen Ende arbeite, wo ich am rechten stehe [...]". - Mit gestemp. Briefkopf.

        North American Indians Being Letters And Notes On Their Manners, Customs, And Conditions, Written During Eight Years' Travel Amongst The Wildest Tribes Of Indians In North America, 1832-1839

      Philadelphia: Leary, Stuart and Company, 1913. A major anthropological study by "one of the most admirable observers of manners who ever lived among the aborigines of America." (Alexander von Humboldt) The American artist visited a total of forty-eight native American tribes on his extensive tour of the great American West, and executed some six hundred paintings, including portraits of aboriginals in full native dress, views of their villages and wigwams, and portrayals of their games, dances, religious ceremonies, buffalo hunting and other amusements. The present narrative vividly relates his adventures, and faithfully records the manners and customs of the Blackfoot, Cree, Ojibway, Sioux, Pawnee, Osage, Chinook, Cherokee and other tribes; of special interest is the section on the Mandans of the Upper Missouri, who were annihilated by smallpox in 1837. The numerous illustrations were copied and reduced for the engraver by Catlin himself, from his original paintings. The first edition was published in 1841 with engraved plates, and the first with plates printed in colour in 1876. cfHowes C-241. cfField 260. cfSabin 11536-37. cfStreeter III 1805. cfWagner-Camp 84. 2 Volumes. large 8vo. pp. ix, [1 leaf], 298; ix, [1 leaf], 303, [1]. with half-titles. 3 chromolithographed maps (1 folding) & 176 (of 177) chromolithographed plates. lacking plate 78 (never bound in). An absolutely stunning pristine copy in original black & gilt-stamped cloth of this fine colour plate edition, top edge gilt, others untrimmed (signature erased from front paste-down). bookplate of Henry Van Dyke [1852-1933], American author, educator and clergyman, who served as American ambassador to the Netherlands and Luxembourg (1913-16)
