Near Fine or better, tight and square; boards rubbed and lightly stained, preliminaries spotted, else clean and crisp, pages and plates nearly pristine. An exemplary example of this scarce title. A key document in the history of modern art, pioneering the movement to free painting from material reality, by one of the first artists to create a completely abstract painting, the nonobjective Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky. First published, in Munich, in 1912 as Uber das geistige in der kunst. Divided into two parts, About General Aesthetic (including an examination of geometrical forms) encourages artists to express their inner lives in abstract, nonmaterial terms (Kandinsky was deeply influenced by Wagner's Lohengrin, which, he felt, pushed the limits of music and melody beyond standard lyricism) and About Painting, discussion of the psychology of color and the language of form and color). Sadler is best remembered by bibliophiles for his remarkable collections and bibliographies N. B.

The nine parts included are those for Viola, Clarinets, Cornets, Bassoon, Cello, Flute and Bass, each of which contains the music for musical numbers 1-4, 4-1/2, 5-8, 10-16 and 18. The part for the Horns section, includes the music to numbers 1-4, 4-1/2, 5-8, and 10-16, while that for the Trombone section contains numbers 1-4 only.

Book by J.K. Hodges and E. Streeter. Lyrics by J.K. Hodges. Music by Vinton Freedley. Additional Number by S.L.M. Barlow". It is itself rare.The sequence and numbers here differ from the published copy of the musical. The numbers as they are here presented consist of: 1. Opening Chorus; 2.

Hodges, who wrote the lyrics, and the composer Vinton Freedley each played roles in the performance, Freedley performing the role of "Isabelle Rankin, a rich American heiress".The parts have the stamps of the Bendix Music Bureau of New York. Max Bendix made his Bendix Symphony Orchestra, which he conducted, available for special occasions. Some of the parts additionally have the stamp of composer/conductor George Lowell Tracy.Tracy (1855-1921) had made his first appearance as a conductor when he was only 10 years old leading an orchestra in a performance of "Oliver Twist" produced by Fannie Davenport and her husband. He lived in Lewiston, Maine where he founded the Rubenstein Club of Lewiston and Auburn, and the Maine Conservatory of Music. He eventually became a professor of music at Boston College.Composed in 1912, "The Legend of Loravia" was first performed by The Hasty Pudding Club at Harvard from March 30 to April 7, 1914. It was then performed at The Carnegie Lyceum in New York City from April 20 to 22, 1914.Vinton Freedley [1891-1969] was an American theatre and television producer known for his productions of works by Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Richard Rodgers, and for such television shows as Talent Jackpot and Showtime U.S.A. Among his musical productions were Lady Be Good featuring Fred and Adele Astaire, Let's Face It!, Leave It to Me!, Cabin in the Sky, Anything Goes, Pardon My English, and Red, Hot and Blue.Informally known as "The Pudding", The Hasty Pudding Theatrical was and is a student society at Harvard University which performed burlesque cross-dressing musicals. In 1897 John Wheelwright described The Hasty Pudding as a "kindly association of men of all ages in a gay evening of simple enjoyment".A rare and very unusual item.

        SŠmtliche Werke. 22 BŠnde.

      - ÈEinzigartiger Zeuge der ZeitÇ, Èder beste Feind der ModerneÇ, ÈPoet der KŠferÇ: Ernst JŸnger, der zu den wichtigsten Autoren des 20. Jahrhunderts zŠhlt, hat ein Werk geschaffen, das so bedeutend wie umstritten ist. Er faszinierte und polarisierte, hatte zahlreiche Bewunderer und ebenso viele Gegner. Er meldete sich am ersten Kriegstag im August 1914 freiwillig zum Dienst in den ÈStahlgewitternÇ - und wurde sieben Jahrzehnte spŠter zur Versšhnungsfeier von Verdun eingeladen. Er schuf mit den ÈMarmorklippenÇ Èdas Renommierbuch der 12 JahreÇ (Thomas Mann) und zugleich das Problembuch der nationalsozialistischen Zeit. Doch war er nicht nur engagierter Patriot, sondern auch Anarch: Seine ÈAnnŠherungenÇ an Drogen und Rausch brachten ihm 1970 eine Anklage wegen unerlaubten Drogenbesitzes ein. Ein streitbarer, wandelbarer Geist, ein literarisches ChamŠleon: ÈWas bleibt, ist bunter Staub.Ç Erstmals erscheint die Gesamtausgabe seines Werkes nun in neuer Gestaltung als Taschenbuch. 22 Bde. ‡ 11,5 x 19 cm, zus. 11.700 Seiten, pb.

'Eiffel'slong and successful career brought him considerable wealth, and late in his life he decided to invest in the newly emerging field of aeronautics. At the age when many people retire, Eiffel built and operated some of the finest aeronautical research tools of his day using his own funds. In 1909, at the foot of his famous tower, Gustave Eiffel built one of the first wind tunnels dedicated to a new science: Aerodynamics. In 1912, the wind tunnel was moved to Auteuil, in Paris, where it is still in operation. He gathered data systematically setting new standards for measurement accuracy. His wind tunnels and methods served as models for subsequent laboratories around the world'. (Scientific Technical Review2012).

Overall, a bright copy, though there is some darkening to the gilt titling at the spine. An early printing with "1914" at the bottom of the title page, the same year as the British edition. The copyright page states "Published August, 1913". With some silverfishing to the bottom of the front board, and just a trace to the rear board (where a couple of spots show signs of toning). There is some light foxing to the illustrations and to the title page. Over a presentable signed copy. Very Good binding.

Roycroft was a handicraft community founded in East Aurora, N.Y. about 1895 by Elbert Hubbard, influenced by the English Arts and Crafts movement. Hubbard started the Roycroft Press in order to publish a series of biographical sketches he had written called "Little Journeys." These form the first volume of this collected edition. Hubbard quickly became both popular and famous and collected a community of craftspeople around him in Aurora. Roycroft craftspeople were skilled metal smiths, leather smiths, and bookbinders. Today, items that were produced by the Roycrofters are highly sought after by collectors.

        Archive of 45 Letters on Sales of Early Vintage Cars

      Background: The Jackson Automotive Company was known for its extraordinarily well built cars; particularly, their luxury models built in 1914 with the Jackson Imperial at $1885.00 being their largest and most expensive and while sales were made all across the Eastern United States, the New York sales division was where the greatest number of sales took place. Earlier their focus was on racing cars and in 1908 the Jackson entry led at the Indianapolis 500 which was stopped at 235 miles due to poor track conditions and a deadly wreck; therefore, the organizers refused to declare a winner. After entering three race cars in the 1911 Indianapolis 500 they moved to emphasizing beautiful cars instead of the racing variety and at one time had 500 works producing 2,000 cars a year before the assembly line concept was introduced. E.A. Dorflinger with whom they worked closely and whose letters are in this collection was known for his craftsmanship and entrepreneurial life. Among the enclosed papers is the original selling agreement giving him exclusive rights in his community to sell five Jackson Automobiles. Here we learn about early dealer percentages (22.5%) and factory breaks on shipping. The 42 items of correspondence often show the problems of ordering parts in the pre-assembly line era. Precision was needed and supplying the needed part meant individual manufacturing once the initial small stock was exhausted. In the years they produced three models: The Olympic, the Majestic, and the Imperial. In a later letter the Sultanic models as touring cars were offered and were being advertised in magazines up until the beginning of World War I. It is obvious that Mr. Dorflinger was not selling cars but ordering the few remaining parts for repairs. In their series of letters beginning on May 1, 1915 they repeat they are expecting orders The next series of letters reflect that the company was dealing with someone who made promises but had no plan to fulfill them. This is a remarkable collection on the early days of vintage automobiles and the problems with both distribution and finding car companies for their small number of models. A very nice collection housed in a binder and each letter in protective plastic.
