        4 ms. Briefe mit eigenh. U. und 1 eh. Telegramm.

      Starnberg und Seebenstein, 22.VIII. 1925 - 8.I. 1926. - Zusammen 7½ SS. 4to und gr.-8vo. Interessante Briefe des Jugendfreundes von Kronprinz Rudolf (1858-1889) an den Bildhauer Henry Kautsch (1859-1943) über die beabsichtigte Gestaltung einer Büste im Schloßpark: "Als uns der General für die Errichtung des Denkmals zu interessieren trachtete und auch uns für die Freigabe des Parkes für das ‘Gartenfest’ ersuchte, frug ich ihn, was er sich für einen Gedanken gemacht habe, um ein hübsches ‘Denkmal’ mit den geringen Mitteln zu Stande zu bringen. Damals sprach er von ‘einem Steinsockel, worauf ein kleiner Obelisk, gekrönt von einem Adler’ sich befände. Dann sagte er mir, er habe vor längerer Zeit mit einem Künstler darüber gesprochen [.] Als ich in Wien meine Schwester, die Erzherzogin Marie Therese frug, sagte sie mir, dass am nächsten Tage Frl. v. Valmagini zu ihr käme, und dass diese gewiss etwas wissen würde. Als ich am folgenden Tage das Frl. v. Valmagini sprach, sagte diese mir, dass Herr Professor in einigen Tagen nach Wien kommen würde und gewiss einen Ratschlag geben könnten [.] Der General sagte mir, dass er erst vor kurzem Ihnen die gewünschten Ausmasse hätte senden können. Auch zeigte er mir ein ganz kleines Thon-Model, welches Herr R. Fänner überraschender Weise ihm geschickt hätte [.] Ich würde [.] gerne Ihre Ansicht erfahren, wie Sie Sich den Fortgang dieser Angelegenheit denken? [.]" - In erster Ehe mit der frühverstorbenen Elisabeth Prinzessin von Thurn und Taxis (1860-1881) verheiratet, ehelichte der Infant von Portugal - der mit der späteren Geliebten des Kronprinzen, Mary Vetsera (1871-1889), vor ihrer Bekanntschaft mit Rudolf im Frühjahr 1888 verlobt gewesen war - 1893 Prinzessin Marie Therese zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg (1870-1935). - Die Arbeiten des aus Prag stammenden Bildhauers und Medailleurs Henry Kautsch "zeigen eine hervorragende Beherrschung der Technik des Flachreliefs [.] und lassen sich neben die besten französischen Arbeiten dieses Faches stellen " (Thieme/Becker XX, 35). - Der aus Rossatz an der Donau stammende Rudolf Fänner (geb. 1879) lebte und arbeitete nach abgeschlossenem Studium an der Münchener Akademie in Wien (vgl. Vollmer II, 67). - Mit altem Sammlungsumschlag.

In 1923, during a journey into the Arabian Peninsula, Cheesman collected over 300 specimens from the Hasa oasis, several of them previously unknown to science. These specimens are currently in the British Museum. He is credited with discovering Cheesman's Gerbil (Gerbillus cheesmani).

        MARK TWAIN Versus THE STREET RAILWAY CO. MARK TWAIN ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT MATERIAL FOR THE BOOK MARK TWAIN versus THE STREET RAILWAY CO

      The original material used by John S. Mayfield in publishing his book, Mark Twain Versus The Street Railway Company (np. 1926) The letters and documents comprising the manuscript are all tipped into a first edition copy of Mark Twain's Autobiography (New York, 1924; Harper ad Brothers). Two volumes large octavo, dust jackets and original box. The material consists of the following items: 1. Autograph letter signed by Mark Twain, 2 pages on black bordered stationary, dated May 5, 1906, to Owen Root, Jr. General Manager of the railway company. Twain eloquently states that his daughters are "frequently robbed by conductors on the surface lines" and that this time his eldest daughter took note of "the thief's" number and the time and place of the incident. 2. Autograph letter signed "S.L. Clemens," 2 pages on black bordered stationary dated May 13, 1906, to Owen Root, Jr. General Manager of the railway company. Twain replies to the Owen Root letter of May 9, 1906 (in full): "Dear Sir: I thank you very much for the trouble you have taken in investigating the complain I entered, and acknowledge with thanks the receipt of stamps amounting to 20 cents. The conductor against whom that charge can be made only once in two years must be a valuable man, and I should be the last one to wish to get him into trouble. Yours Very Truly/S.L. Clemens" ("To Owen Root, Jr., Esq.") 3. Autograph letter signed "Clemens" to James Redpath, 1 page, dated June 14, 1871. Twain writes that he is "hard at work" on a book similar to the Innocents (The Innocents Abroad). 4. Autograph letter signed "Mark" to James Redpath, 1 page dated May 15, 1873. Twain writes to his friend that he is sailing in the Batavia (for London) on Saturday and gives his London address. 5. Autograph signatures of Twain "S.L. Clemens/Mark Twain" tipped into one of the preliminaries of volume one. 6. Black-bordered card tipped onto the title page of volume two: "Mr. S.L. Clemens, 21 Fifth Avenue." 7. Carbon copy of a type letter from Owen Root, Jr., V-P and General Manager of the railway company to Mark Twain, 2 pages dated May 9, 1906; Mr. Root apologizes to Mr. Twain and acknowledges that his conductor may have been mistaken. Mr. Root encloses 20 cents in stamps to reimburse Miss Clemens for change she should have received. 8. Autograph document signed (an affidavit) by John Burgess, the conductor involved in the incident; 3 pages dated May 1, 1906. The affidavit is accompanied by a TLS by the Division General Foreman, dated May 8, 1906, explaining his interview with the accused conductor; a map is attached to rear paste-down. 9. Autograph letter signed to Herbert S. Stone, from E.C. Stedman, 2 pages dated March 13, 1894. The letter concerns a Poe item in Stedman's possession, about which an article has appeared in the newspaper. Stedman tells Stone that he has found the other Poe like his-the only other one. It is The Tale of the Ragged Mountains, and W.E. Benjamin had it, but sold it to a customer for $500. 10. Autograph letter signed to Chauncey M. Depew (of Cambridge) from E.C. Stedman, April 17, 1888. Stedman writes that his and Depew's remarks against demands for "brain-testing" he is giving his friend, the editor of The Youths Companion, a letter to Depew (from a 3rd party). Stedman adds, "for I suspect that you would rather write a paper for the youngsters than to do anything else out of railroading ad politics." 11. A printed letter signed by the author, George Washington Cable, to Edmund C. Stedman [n.p., n.d.], saying hat it had been agreed among some 150 friends of Twain to write to him asking for his autograph. These letters would be mailed so that all would reach Twain on April 1st and would constitute an April Fool's Joke; none of the letters would contain a self-addressed stamped envelope. This Aprils Fool's joke includes the envelope postmarked March 29, 1884. 12. A first edition of the book Mark Twain vs. The Street Railway Company, (n.p. 1926). BAL 3540 All the abov.

        Catalogue of the Edward E. Ayer Ornithological Library [2 Vols., 1926 1st Edition]

      Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago 1926 - Chicago: Field Museum of Natural History, 1926. First Editions [2 volumes, Part I and Part II]. Original wrappers bound in. 8vo, modern buckram boards, spine lettered in gilt. Fine, flawless, including the original wrappers bound in, which look virtually as they must have when first printed. Probably the finest surviving set of the original masterwork by Edward Ayer, assembled by John Todd Zimmer for the Field Museum one year before Ayer's death. Ayer is described by the Museum as one who has been the "principal benefactor" of its library. His personal financial endowments were just part of that; his own accumulated book and print collections became the source for much of that library's essence. "His particular interest in the continuous development of the Ayer Ornithology Library during Ayer's lifetime was driven by his desire that it should be among the foremost collections of its kind. His success in achieving this goal became evident in the year before his death when the Museum published John Todd Zimmer's Catalogue of the Edward E. Ayer Ornithological Library (Chicago, 1926). This classic of ornithological bibliography clearly confirmed the Ayer Collection as one of the finest in the world." - From the Field Museum online site. An exceptional, pristine set.

        Satanu. Basen. (Satan. A Poem)

      Prague: The artist (Vrsovice: L.P.) 1926 - Published in an edition of 17 copies, this is a highly dramatic work illustrating the eponymous poem by Carducci (1835-1907), noted poet, historian and politician. SATANU is a magnificent work in large format (59 x 34 cm) with 11 full-page hand-colored woodcuts and 3 smaller linocuts, also in color. Váchal made the paper by hand, created the 1000 printed characters of his own making, and printed it in his studio in the Prague district of Vrsovice. The book is signed in the colophon and numbered by three thumbprints and four fingerprints, making this the seventh copy. Vachal presents us with a series of visual meditations that are some of his strongest, including an abstraction with alchemical symbols and possibly one of the most remarkable busts of the Lord of Darkness in the frontispiece. The artist was a lover of fine literature and poetry, and Carducci provides ample catalytic power in his strong declaration of free thought and personal autonomy for the individual. This book was published in the period of what could be considered the zenith of Váchal’s output (1918-1933) and is one of his undisputed masterworks. This copy is unbound as issued. There is light offsetting as usual on the Title. This book was handmade by Váchal and, as was his general custom, issued in loose sheets to his buyers who would take it as is and have them bound if desired. Váchal did not normally bind his private printing, doing so in very few cases such as with the mammoth ŠUMAVA, and even then only three or four out of the full edition of eleven. Each of Váchal´s private works may be considered unique and differ from the works destined for larger publication which were normally bound and more consistent (“larger” publications usually ran between 75 and 150 copies). Often one finds slight variations between one and another copy, just as his work was subject to spontaneous elements ad libitum. It is unquestionably noted as a book production in the catalogue raisonné. References: JOSEF VÁCHAL, a catalogue raisonné. Prague: Argestea, 1994. Catalogue K20, page 457; illustrated pp. 331-333.

        The Land Of Mist

      New York, George H. Doran Company 1926., 1926. First US Edition. 8vo. Near fine in publisher's green cloth with titles in black to spine and front board. Some residue remains of a white paper label that appears to have been fixed to the lower edge of the front board, aprt from this residue and a slight bump to the upper right hand corner the book is exceptionally clean and lovely. Slight spotting to the page edges, the book is clad in a lovely example of the fragile dustwrapper, wear to extremities and chipping to the top right hand corner of the front panel and to the base of the spine, otherwise unfaded and bright, some slight toning to the green and cream rear panel and spine but the virtues far outweigh the shortcomings. Scarce in the wrapper and even scarcer in a wrapper that doesn't look like it heaved itself down the Amazon wracked with yellow fever and babbling about dinosaurs. The third story in the series featuring Professor George Challenger, one of the most memorable characters in speculative fiction. Doyle's other great character beside Sherlock Holmes, Challenger had already starred in two novels 'The Lost World' (1912), and 'The Poison Belt' (1913) and would later appear in 'When the World Screamed' and 'The Disintegration Machine'; Brilliant, witty, insufferable, and blessed with a booming voice and a huge black beard, Challenger is an eccentric and able champion of the human race. Given the author's preoccupation with Spritism at this time, 'The Land of Mist' turned out to be a psychic adventure. Green and Gibson; A Bibliography of Arthur Conan Doyle.

        Typescripts with Author's Corrections for Two or Three Graces.

      - 103ff. typed carbon sheets comprising the typescripts for the complete contents of Huxley's 1926 collection, Two or Three Graces. In addition to the title novella, the collection contains three shorter stories: "The Monocle," "Fairy Godmother," and "Half-Holiday." This is likely the setting copy for the book, as some of the pencil notations are concerned with matters of font selection and page breaks; also, it has the Little & Ives receipt stamp on the verso of page 4, showing it as being received on 8 December 1925. Huxley composed almost all of his works on the typewriter, and these typescripts show the author's changes in black and red pen, as well as an editor's annotations in pencil for the printer. The title of "Fairy Godmother" was changed by Huxley, and the first page of the story has a slip from the publisher tipped into the margin. Housed in a specially-made, folding cloth chemise and a green morocco-backed slipcase. Some edgewear is present to the thin typing paper, and a marginal tear to page 74 has resulted in slight text loss. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

More details and photos can be sent upon request. size 32 x 24cm ( 13 x 10 inches approx.) Juan Gris (José Victoriano González Pérez), Spanish 1887-1927) Juan Gris, real name José Victoriano González Pérez, was born in Madrid in 1887. His father, Gregorio González, was a well known paper manufacturer. He studied engineering at Madrid's School of Arts and Sciences. He took painting lessons with the minor academic artist José Maria Carbonero . After his fathers death, Gris moved to Paris in 1906 and remained in France for the rest of his life. He had missed military service, so he was unable to return to Spain. He settled in the Bateau Lavoir, a tenement that housed many painters, critics, and poets, and it was there that he met Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Guillaume Apollinaire, Max Jacob, and Maurice Raynal. Gris produced his first cubist paintings in 1911-1912.Gris and his wife spent the summer of 1913 with Picasso at Ceret, and the following year he spent the time spent time with Henri Matisse at Collioure. Gris returned to Paris in 1915 and suffered poverty during World War I. Daniel Henry Kahnweiler, became Gris's dealer in 1920 and wrote the first monograph on the painter in 1929. As a businessman Kahnweiler innovated many new ways of working with artists; and art dealing; - now established practise with art dealers. In 1907 when there were only half a dozen good galleries in Paris, he made contracts with artists to buy all of their work .He held exhibitions of their work and he promoted their work internationally. He encouraged the practise of Artist Ilustrated books, where a contemporary artist illustrates a work of a contemporary writer - he expanded his presentations by bringing together artists, writers and poets to produce their works as a joint project in more than 40 books. In fact as an art and literary publisher he had no equal; being the first to publish works by Max Jacob, Guillaume Apollinaire, André Masson, Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris and many others and in so doing launched many literary careers. Due to Khanweiler helping his career and to counter hs declining health, in 1922, Gris was able to move his studio from the "Bateau Lavoir" to Boulogne-sur-Seine. In 1924 and 1925 Gris spent much of his time writing and lecturing on his views on painting. In 1924 he delivered a paper at the Sorbonne, Les Possibilités de la Peinture (On the Possibilities of Painting), which was later translated and widely published. He died in Paris 1927 at the age of forty from an asthma attack. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
