        Kai Chigusa - The Illustrations of a Thousand Shells [ One Thousand Kinds of Shells ]

      Kyoto: Unsodo 1914 / 1915. 3 volumes, each with 20 fine woodblock prints. Hirase was a collector and dealer, as well as a scholar in shells. He had intended to publish 10 volumes in this series, but only produced 4 (the fourth being published in 1922). He opted to use the traditional Japanese woodblock process, rather than lithography, and produced stunning results. They are all very scarce (the 3rd and 4th especially so, as the print run was reduced), and these three are in especially fine condition. . Fine. Japanese Binding. 1914. Small 4to..

        Feats on the Fiord

      1914. An Unrecorded Binding VariantIn the Scarce Dust JacketWith All Plates in Color[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. MARTINEAU, Harriet. Feats on the Fiord. By Harriet Martineau. With Coloured Illustrations by Arthur Rackham. London : J.M. Dent & Sons Limited / New York: E.P. Dutton & Company, n.d. [1914]. Second (and best) American edition, with all the plates in color, in an unrecorded binding variant. Octavo (7 x 5 in; 178 x 127 mm). 128 pp. Eight color plates, including frontispiece (all dated 1899).Publisher's original blue cloth pictorially and ornamentally stamped in gilt, gilt lettered and ornamented spine with E.P. Dutton & Co. at foot and onlaid color plate ("It came nearer and nearer, and at last quite up to the can of ale" (frontisiece)) to upper board. Original pictorial dust jacket (also with E.P. Dutton & Co. at foot), printed in green. A fine copy in the very scarce dust jacket (jacket slightly chipped at top and bottom of spine).Both Latimore & Haskell and Riall note binding in red or green cloth but not blue, as here.The half-title reads: Tales for Children from Many Lands Edited by F.C. Tilney."I have seen a copy that causes a confusion as to which is the 1st edition. The cover has a label pasted over "With Coloured Illustrations by Arthur Rackham" to change the title to "With coloured illustrations ", and on the title page there is no mention of "Coloured by W. Cubitt Cooke". There may have been a mistake of ommitting the the colouring had been done by another on the title page so the pasted plate was added to the cover until the 2nd. issue." (Riall, p.122).Just to complicate matters further - our copy has "Coloured Illustrations by Arthur Rackham" on the front cover, no mention of Cubitt Cooke on the title-page - but there is a small erratum slip which is tipped-in over the List of Illustrations which reads: "Erratum / Title Page / The illustrations in this volume are reproduced from line drawings by Arthur Rackham, but the pictures have been coloured by W. Cubitt Cooke." (DJB)."The Ingoldsby Legends commission [by Dent] was soon followed by another from Dent, for the eleven illustrations to Harriet Martineau's Feats on the Fjord. To be quite sure of getting the detail in the Norwegian costumes right, Rackham sought the advice of Dr. Hans Reusch, the friend he had made in Norway the year before" (Hamilton, Arthur Rackham: A Biography, pp. 50-51).In the first edition of 1899 [The Temple Classics for Young People], the twelve plates, with the exception of the frontispiece, are in black and white, and the title page thus lacks the credit to W. Cubitt Cooke. Colorist William Cubitt Cooke was a friend of Rackham's, a fellow member of the Langham Sketching Club, a group organized by The Artist's Society, meeting at its London headquarters each Friday evening from October through May.Latimore and Haskell, p. 43. Riall, p. 122.

        Vieux Marché Gand". Alter Markt in Gent.

      - Radierung und Mischtechnik, auf chamoisfarbenem Japan, links unten betitelt, rechts unten signiert „JdBruycker". 40:56,5 cm. Breitrandiger sehr guter Abdruck! De Bruycker studierte an der Akademie in Gent, anschließend in London von 1914-1918. Am Institut supérieur des Beaux-Arts in Antwerpen war als Lehrer tätig. Obwohl er auch als Aquarellist und Zeichner arbeitete, hat er seine Hauptbedeutung als Radierer. „Seine Kunst trägt metaphysisches Gepräge. Seine von spukhaften Visionen erfüllten figürlichen Kompositionen üben eine faszinierende Wirkung aus, die stimmungsmäßig an Rabelais und E.A. Poe, H. Bosch und P. Brueghel erinnert. Seine Landschaften und Architekturdarstellungen sind phantastische Träume, die nur ganz von fern noch an das Naturvorbild erinnern. Das Erlebnis des Krieges hat sich ihm zu einem Danse macabre von erschütternder Dämonie verdichtet. Aus seinen Zeichnungen und Aquarellen spricht ein philosophischer Weltbetrachter, zugleich ein erbarmungslos scharfer Menschenbeobachter, dessen Spottlust vor nichts halt macht. Gelegentlich wird man an Kubin erinnert. Seine Linie hat etwas eminent Anregendes, und Form und Inhalt kommen in seinen Radierungen restlos zur Deckung, worin das Geheimnis ihrer Wirkung liegt." (zit. aus: Thieme/Becker, Bd. I, S. 338).

        On the Hills of Time. Calendar for 1915

      T. N. Foulis, London and Edinburgh 1914 - Scarce panorama. Closed, 14 by 11 cm, and opening to about 132 cm in length, with twelve panels on each side. With each fold, a color plate illustration representing the month in some way on the left, the month's calendar on the right, and this alternative pattern runs on both sides of the panorama. The same decoration serves as background for each month's calendar, but the facing full illustrated plate carry captions, and these and the imagery of the plate relate to the ongoing war either directly or indirectly in most instances. For example, in a few plates a man looks as if he is a soldier -- it is not always 100 percent clear that this is so -- but the sentiments are precisely the grist of wartime longing, with pleas for peace, love, a recognition of strife, etc. As to the rareness of this panorama, only two items with the same title were located on OCLC, both being calendars for 1914, which almost certainly had differences besides the monthly calendars. Soiling of outer panels. Rubbing and wear along folds. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Tarzan of The Apes

      Chicago: A.C. McClurg, 1914 First edition, first printing of the author's first book. First state of the text with "W. F. Hall Printing Co" set in old English type in two lines to the verso of the copyright page. First state publisher's red cloth binding, lacking the acorn device on the spine. A very good copy with the spine lettering dimmed, cloth lightly faded at spine. Internally, pages clean with only a few minor spots, spine shaken with the text block cracked with some separation between several gatherings, hinges sound. Overall, a bright and presentable copy. Tarzan of the Apes is the first novel in Burroughs' series of Tarzan adventure stories. Specifically, it tells the story a boy named John Clayton who was born in the jungles of central Africa to English parents and adopted by apes after being orphaned. The apes named him "Tarzan" and raised him as their own, causing the boy to feel more affinity for his primate "relatives" than human tribes. Tarzan begins to question his identity, however, when he meets his unbeknownst cousin William Cecil Clayton and the American Jane Porter, with whom he falls in love. Notably, Tarzan made his literary debut in the October 1912 issue of The All-Story Magazine, which printed the story in its entirety; the literary periodical typically serialized stories in monthly installments, making Tarzan's publication somewhat unusual - an early indication of the novel's imminent popularity.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

      Wien... Leipzig Universal=Edition [PN U.E. 5334 5336] [July 30, 1914]. Folio. In original publisher's heavy textured paper wrappers printed in gilt. 1f., 1f. (title), [i] ("Vorwort" by Schoenberg), [i] (contents), [ii] (text of the 21 poems), 5-78, [ii] (blank) pp. Engraved. Without printed price. With printed note to lower left corner of first page of music: "Copyright 1914 by Universal-Edition" and printed note to lower right corner of first page of music: "Stich und Druck von Breitkopf & Härtel in Leipzig." Signed by Schoenberg and with printed number 14 to verso of first blank leaf. Wrappers slightly worn, soiled, and bumped, dampstained at inner edges and spine; spine slightly frayed. Uncut. A very good copy overall.. Rare. First Edition, first issue, limited to 50 signed and numbered copies, this no. 14. Rufer (Engl.) pp. 38-40. Ringer p. 314. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 13-16. The first issue of the edition, shipped on July 30, 1914, was split: 50 copies were printed on high-quality laid paper; the remaining 200 copies were printed on regular paper. The copies on laid paper carry the printed note "Numerierte Vorzugsausgabe auf Bütten" to title. Hitherto unrecorded is the fact that the copies on laid paper bear the note "Stich und Druck von Breitkopf & Härtel in Leipzig" to the lower right corner of the first page of music. The note "Weag" (for Waldheim- Eberle A.G.) to p. 78, mentioned in the Schoenberg Complete Edition (Abteilung VI, Reihe B, Band 24, 1, critical report by Reinhold Brinkmann), is unique to the standard version of the issue. Albertine Zehme (1857-1946), an actress born in Vienna and later active in Berlin, is now exclusively remembered as the person who commissioned and first performed Pierrot Lunaire. "Read the preface, looked at the poems. I am enthusiastic. A brilliant idea, entirely in my spirit. I would do it even without a fee." Schoenberg in his diary. The poems are by the Belgian Albert Giraud (1860-1929) in the German translation by Erich Otto Hartleben (1864-1905).

        Auguries of Innocence

      Flansham [Sussex]: The Pear Tree Press,, Spring 1914. Small (12mo sized) quarto. Original blue paper-covered card boards, intaglio-printed title label to front cover, pages uncut as intended (each leaf bears a plate impression). Printed on Arches handmade paper. Housed in a custom made white cloth folding case. Intalgio printed in blue and silver to a design by James Guthrie, the calligraphy by Lilian Frost, with 16 plates including half-title, title-page, 11 page of text, colophon, and 2 plates of Guthrie's illustrations. Wrapper slightly ruffled at the edges, and with a few minors marks to wrappers and a very few internally. An excellent copy of a fragile production. First Pear Tree Press edition; number 7 of just 25 copies (the limitation calligraphically inscribed on the leaf following the colophon), a much smaller limitation than the 1/100 more usually met with, and produced using more delicately coloured inks. This limitation is not recorded in the bibliographies. This beautiful production around some of Blake's best-loved lines is generally regarded as Guthrie's first really competent plate book. This copy bears the bookplate of the author (of Quest for Corvo fame), bibliographer (of Yeats), and latter-day celebrant of the fin-de-siècle decadents, A. J. A. Symons (1900-1941), who in 1922 founded the First Editions Club. A nice association to a rare production, printed moreover at a poignant date in the Spring of 1914, with such proleptic lines as: "Nought can deform the human race / Like to the armourer's iron brace; / The soldier armed with sword and gun / Palsied strikes the summer's sun." Or, to use the later words of Philip Larkin, in a poem meditating on that same year: "Never such Innocence again".
