Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc, 1963. First Trade edition. 1 vols. 8vo. Blue cloth. Very good. First Trade edition. 1 vols. 8vo. Great Association Copy. Inscribed on half-title, "By one of the greatest men I ever knew, to the greatest man I ever knew, Bruce Barton from Alex F. Osborn."Bruce Barton (1886-1967) is considered by many to be one of the most influential advertising men of the 20th century. He was not your ordinary adman - religious author, Congressman, founder of the advertising agency BBDO, creator of Betty Crocker. The interesting, yet complicated, life of this man illustrates the complexity of the creative mind. A mind that was not limited to one endeavor, but found a way to apply similar skills and abilities to a multitude of opportunities. Despite all of his other accomplishments, he is still remembered first and foremost as an adman. In a fictional novel based on BBDO, The Virgin Queene, the Bruce Barton character named Barnham Dunn tried to explain his successAlex F. Osborn was born in New York City, May 24,1888, graduated Ph.B. in 1909 and Ph.M. in1921 at Hamilton College. Meanwhile, he worked as a reporter for the Buffalo (N.Y.) Times in 1909 and for the Buffalo Express during the following two years. He was assistant secretary of the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce in 1911-12 and sales manager of the Hard Manufacturing Co., Buffalo from 1912 to 1915. In the latter year he entered the field of advertising as manager of the E. P Remington Advertising Co., Buffalo. During World War I, he worked as a volunteer for the United War Work campaign and there met another young writer Bruce Barton. He was married in Buffalo, Sept. 5,1916, to Helen, daughter of Edward Emerson Coatsworth of the city, a lawyer, and had five children: Katharine, Joan, Marion, Russell Barton,and Elinor. n 1919 Alex Osborn found the advertising agency of Barton, Durstine and Osborn, New York City with Bruce Barton and Roy Durstine. In 1928 the firm was merged with the George Batten Co. to formBatten, Barton, Durstine & Osborn. Inc. A partner in the original firm, Osborn was named vice-president of the newly merged agency. Advanced to executive vice-president and general manager in 1939, he became vice-chairman of the board in 1946. In 1957 he became a member of the executive committee, and he served in both posts until his retirement in 1960.

  • Publisher: Alph. Lebègue et Sacré Fils, Brussels
  • Format: Hardcover
5 vols. 1st edition (jamais vu), preceding all other editions including multiple Brussels editions from Meline, Muquardt, and Société Belge de Librairie Hauman, as well as Baudry's 1844 Paris edition (issued last of all the 1844 editions). 1st issue (Lebègue in 18mo.) preceding their reissue in 24mo. This is the real 1st edition, listed first by Munro (Alexandre Dumas Père. A Bibliography of Works Published in French) without dispute, and prior to any other 1844 edition. It's also the rarest edition of Mousquetaires. Full French, glazed and diced, blindstamped paper covered boards. Pinpoint rubs to corners, page 183 in vol. V with a short tear to the margin (just touching but not taking 2 letters of text), else fine, complete with all 5 half-titles, and all 10 original printed wrappers (front and back) bound in. An amazing unearthing, rare by any criterion. Munro lists a set (not ours) so that makes 2 recorded, but let me continue. No copies of this Lebègue edition at auction in 50 years (the only Brussels editions sold at auction in that time were 2 copies, 13 years ago, of Meline's Brussels and Leipzig imprint, the 2nd Meline edition, the 6th overall, and the most common of the 7 Brussels editions, by 4 publishers, listed by Munro in 1844). More surprisingly, OCLC located no (zero) sets of this Lebègue 1st edition in any National or University library, and only single volumes I, II, and V at Sommerpalais, Germany (OCLC does record libraries holding sets of the other Brussels editions and, of course, extensive holdings of Baudry's Paris edition). Coll: [1]-181, [1,blank]. [1]-172. [1]-171, [1 blank]. [1]-163. [1 blank]. [1]-223, [1 blank] pp. Let me repeat. This is the true 1st edition of Les Trois Mousquetaires, as recorded in the most current and most comprehensive bibliography, one of 2 known sets, and think about this. No other 19th century novel with stature comparable to Les Trois Mousquetaires has a census that shows it to be anywhere near as rare. Tous pour un, un pour tous. The 1st appearance was a daily serialization in the newspaper Le Siècle (The Century) from March 14 to July 14, 1844. The Brussels editions were also serialized 1 volume at a time as soon as enough of the novel had appeared in the newspaper to make up a volume, and the mosh pit frenzy of the Brussels publishers to get the progressive volumes of their editions out as quickly as possible, insures that each individual volume's exact date of publication will remain an open question. That said, Lebègue's edition holds supremacy as the 1st because their edition had both its first and last volumes issued before the others, and there is no doubt it's the rarest. And beyond rational dispute is that all the 1844 Brussels editions precede the 1844 Paris edition (it's more sure with this title than with many others) because after the serial was completed, and with the Brussels editions fully published and being sold, Dumas casually opened Paris book publication rights for bidding while he unnecessarily revised the text (most who have read both texts agree the original is better than the revised). The winner (in a feisty rivalry) was finally Baudry, and he paid a lot for the Paris rights so his printing was larger than usual, but despite his edition not having priority over any Brussels edition, and being more common than any of the other Paris editions of Dumas' foremost novels, it would still be preferred in some Continental circles, though in wider circles "1st edition" still carries all the weight. And yes, it's odd that Baudry's 1st Paris edition of Les Trois Mousquetaires is the most common of the Paris 1st editions of Dumas' major novels, while Lebègue's true 1st edition of it seems the rarest one all.

12mo. 4.1 x 6.76 inches. Frontis.+ [ii] + ii + 480 + xii pp. [2], B-U12, Y-Y6. Illustrated with engraved frontispiece by Isaac Taylor. Bound with contemporary patterned calf, gilt decorated spine and gilt borders, black morocco label. Front and rear hinges loose and joints weak Small area on top border of frontispiece missing. Small abraded area at right lower edge of C6-7 with minimal loss of text. Early ink stains, especially, F6-7 and U6-7. Some foxing and browning of pages. 1947 ink inscription inside front paste-down. First published as Mawe's Gardener's Calendar in 1767, this proved to be one of the most popular gardening books of its era and indeed continued to be revised as late as 1879. It is arranged by the months of the year, with lists of plants at the end. In fact it was not written by Thomas Mawe, but by John Abercrombie (1726-1806), son of an Edinburgh market gardener, who had worked at Kew and other royal gardens and later established his own market gardens in the London area. Having expanded his practical observations into book form, his publisher, William Griffin, submitted the publication to his friend, William Mawe, gardener to the Duke of Leeds. Mawe 'bore testimony to the merit of the production, and prefixed his name to the publication in order to give it that celebrity to which it was so justly entitled, for which he received a gratuity of twenty guineas.' Following the great success of the book, Mawe, a notable figure in the gardening world, invited Abercrombie to visit him in Yorkshire. There the author saw 'a gentleman so bepowdered, and so bedaubed with gold lace, that he thought he could be in the presence of no less a personage than the Duke himself.' (both quotations from Blanche Henrey). In spite of this the two became friends and Mawe gave Abercrombie further information to use in his published works. This sixth edition is the last to appear under the sole authorship of Mawe and from the seventh edition of 1776, Abercrombie added his own name to the title page. These later editions were larger by a third or more. The fine engraving of two gardeners digging and hoeing was replaced by a portrait of Abercrombie from 1800 onwards. A scarce early edition of this influential gardening book. NATURAL HISTORY/SCIENCE GARDENING NATURAL HISTORY/SCIENCE ESTC T 33566 Blanche Henrey 1057 DNB

  • Publisher: 1865
Original artwork in pencil. Approx. image size 85 × 60 mm with large margins all round. John Tenniel's monogram to the lower right. Mounted, glazed and framed. Fine. Portion of backing from previous mount cut round and retained, with ink inscription of Mr & Mrs Ben Wolf; framers' label of Kennedy & Co. Rare Prints, 693 & 5th Ave.; later sticker of Newman Galleries, Philadelphia. Tenniel's original drawing for the illustration of the Gryphon which appears on page 138 of the 1865 first edition of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Carroll gave Tenniel the exact measurements of each image as they were to fit on the page around the text. The drawings were then traced onto woodblocks and engraved by the Dalziel Brothers. The final stage in the reproduction process was to make electrotype plates from the woodblocks, using them as masters. The electrotype plates were used for the actual printing. There were enormous difficulties preserving Tenniel's delicate pencilwork throughout this process, and Carroll famously cancelled the 1865 first edition on account of its poorly-reproduced illustrations. When one sees at first hand the extreme delicacy of line and tone in Tenniel's original, one must have some sympathy for the poor engravers and printers. Accompanying the drawing is a copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: An 1865 printing re-described (Privately printed for The Jabberwock, 1990), which includes a census of the original drawings by Justin G. Schiller, this copy with a signed inscription by Justin Schiller on the half-title: "For the owner of the recently unearthed original art of the sleeping Gryphon (A33), a genuine Tenniel drawing used by the Dalziels for making the woodblock used in the 1865 'Alice' but not [double underline] in my census", signed and dated 16 April 2004.

  • Publisher: New York: Doubleday & Co. Inc., 1950
Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine red. With the dust jacket. Spine gently rolled, edges lightly foxed; a very good copy in the jacket, spine ends and tips rubbed and nicked. First edition, first printing, rare presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Harry and Evelyn in appreciation of your kind hospitality from Ray Bradbury. May 1950", and with the publisher's compliments slip laid in. The association is a nice one: the recipient was Harry Harrison, science-fiction author and illustrator. At the time of this inscription he was an illustrator for EC Comics, working on Weird Fantasy and Weird Science. His short story "Rock Diver" was published in Worlds Beyond in 1951, and Harrison increasingly turned his attention to prose, going on to write over 60 books, including Make Room! Make Room! (1966), which was adapted into the film Soylent Green in 1973. Locke, Vol. I, p. 39.

Beautifully bound volume of American Poetry signed by all contributors published to raise money for the preservation of Boston's Old South Church. This FINE copy is bound in full elegant brown morocco with boards ruled and paneled in an arts and crafts style, with a green leaf gothic like design with accenting red berries. The spine continues the design elements adding the title, some authors and the date. Exaggerated turn ins continue the design in gilt only, paste downs and first fly in a gold moire. This volume was created as a fund raiser for the old Boston meeting house or old south church as it was known. Built in 1729 and used throughout the American Revoloution it had been in use as a church until 1872 when there were thoughts of razing it. Funds were raised to turn it into a museum and in 1877 this title was first published to help with that effort. A second fundraiser/publication occured in 1879 and included an unknown quantity containing the original signatures of the poets and theologians that contributed work. So goes this copy which contains the ORIGINAL SIGNATURES OF SOME OF THE MOST RESPECTED POETS OF THE TIME; LONGFELLOW, WHITTIER, HOLMES, HOWE, HALE AND CLARKE. This copy also contains the bookplate of Roy Arthur Hunt and a full page gift inscription which states that Hunt is a descendent of the first pastor of the church, Thomas Thacher. Binding is signed [John] GRABAU, original front cloth cover and spine bound in at rear, includes accompanying felt lined slip case with extraction ribbon.

191 pages, with all photo plates and illustrations as called for. A collectors' anomaly, bearing on the first front free endpaper a stamp in mauve coloured ink of the signature of Frank James brother of Jesse. I have gone through the usual channels within the trade to determine whether this stamp is known - was it a sales gimmick? was it an ownership stamp of Frank James? I remain in the dark, and the colleagues contacted have not seen its like. Offered here as a curiosity, with no guarantee of direct association. Purchased from a granddaughter of a resident (b.1911) of Shelby, OH, a gun collector and frequenter of auctions. Binding sound; minor stainis to cloth, light tideline to upper margin of a few leaves; paper toned; title page brittle at gutter. Size: 8vo.

  • Format: Hardcover
Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (blaues Ganzleinen GLn / OLn / Ln im Format 14 x 22 cm) mit dekoriertem Deckeltitel in Goldprägung, Text: Fraktur. 169 Seiten, mit vielen ganzseitigen Fotoabbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier (Porträt-Aufnahmen von führenden Nationalsozialisten) sowie einem Foto des Verfassers auf Seite 6. Druck: Hansa-Buchdruckerei Bormann & Co / Leipzig. - Das Buch ist gewidmet "aus tiefer Geistverbundenheit allen schaffenden germanischen Artschwestern und Artbrüdern, die deutsch leben und streben". - Aus dem Vorwort: "Menschenkenntnis ist Macht. Keineswegs fußt die vorliegende Arbeit auf neuen wissenschaftlichen Grundsätzen. Seit dem 17.Jahrhundert bereits finden sich immer wieder Anläufe, Rassenkunde und Menschenkenntnis zu staatlich anerkannten Wissenschaften erheben. Aber die Gegner in Staatsstellen und an Schulen und Universitäten haben es verstanden, das Urwissen unserer Ahnen bis zu dieser Zeit zu unterdrücken. Von den Vorkämpfern für dieses Wissen seien erwähnt: Lavater, Dr.Gall, Dr.Spürzheimer, Prof.Combe, Carus, Hutter, Gerling und Peters. Diese deckt bereits die kühle Erde. Unter uns Lebenden weilen: Lanz von Liebensfels, Ißberner-Haldane, Georg Richter und Burger-Villingen. Lanz von Liebensfels gebührt ein besonderer Ruhmeskranz. Trotz stärkster Knebelung und erbitterter Verfolgung hat er sich voller Idealismus für die Rassenkunde eingesetzt und sie weithin verbreitet. Ißberner-Haldane und Georg Richter kämpfen heldenmütig für den Rassengedanken und lassen sich selbst durch den Verlust von Freundinnen und Freunden nicht beirren. Beide schufen und finanzierten völlig unabhängig voneinander je eine Rassenschule . . . Hinsichtlich der Literatur verweise ich auf die Angaben in meinem Werk "Die urewige Weisheitssprache der Menschenformen". Heil Deutschland! Der Verfasser. Bärenstein (Bez. Dresden), am 20. April 1933". - Aus der Einleitung: "Alle äußeren Formen, gleichviel ob Kopf, Hals, Hand, Gang, Sprache, Gebärde, Ausdruck, Schrift, entsprechen den inneren Kräfte des Menschen. Damit ist die Möglichkeit gegeben, an den Rassenmerkmalen die unterschiedlichen seelischen Anlagen zu erkennen. Rasse ist niemals mit Taufe oder Änderung der Nationalität zu verwischen. Sie besteht vielmehr immer weiter, weil die Rasse durch das unveränderte Blut bestimmt wird. An ihrer Hautfarbe kann man die vier Grund- und Hauptrassen erkennen. Weiße Hautfarbe: arisch-germanische Rasse, braune Hautfarbe: Mediterrane, gelbe Hautfarbe: Mongolen, schwarze Hautfarbe: afrikanische Stämme. Der Jude ist keine bestimmte reine Rasse, sondern eine Mischrasse aus allen vier Grundrassen unter deren Unterarten. Daraus erklärt sich sein unberechenbares, internationales Heimatgefühl. Seine Heimat ist jeweilig dort, wo ein gutes Auskommen findet. Darin unterscheidet er sich grundlegend von den germanischen Völkern, denn diese halten ihrer Heimat die unbedingte Treue. Das gleiche gilt für die schwarzen Völker und auch für die Mongolen. Wenn der Jude eine Rassengemeinschaft eingeht, so tut er das nur aus Not und Berechnung. Selten aber ist diese Gemeinschaft von langer Dauer. Denn infolge seines egoistischen und händlerischen Wesens macht er sich bei jedem Wirtsvolk bald dermaßen unbeliebt, daß er wieder vertrieben wird. Darum muss auch für das deutsche Volk aus Liebe zu seiner Rassenreinheit Rassenscheidung gefordert werden. Jede Rassenmischung ist Sünde! Seit unserer Volkskanzler die Zügel in die Hand genommen hat, ist gottlob unter dem verjudeten medizinischen Berufsstand aufgeräumt worden. Mit einemal geht von dort eine Welle des Verständnisses aus . . . - Deutsches / Drittes Reich, Antisemitismus, Sachsen, Alte Kämpfer als heroische nordisch-germanische Menschen dargestellt, deutsche Menschen um Adolf Hitler, Charakterkunde, menschlicher Charakter, Charakterologie, Phrenologie, Schädellehre, Guido von List, der Frankenführer Julius Streicher und weitere Führungspersönlichkeiten des Nationalsozialismus rassenkundlich betrachtet,

  • Publisher: [Washington, D.C.: by the Author, 1917]
N.p.: [Washington, D.C.: by the Author, 1917], 1917. Paperback. Brief but quite sophisticated discussion of the issue of race eugenics and whether the "professional class" of Negroes would be self-sustaining through its own reproductivity;" Miller's preliminary conclusion is that "the upper class is headed towards extinction, unless reinforced from the fruitful mass below." Kelly Miller (1863-1939) was the first African American to receive graduate education in Mathematics (Johns Hopkins, 1887-89); he later founded the Department of Sociology at Howard University, where he taught until 1934. Though less widely-known today than his more famous contemporaries Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois, Miller was arguably the most influential Black intellectual of his era, a prolific, articulate, and widely-published advocate for Negro education and civil rights, once called by Carter Woodson "undoubtedly the greatest pamphleteer of the Negro race." Octavo. Staple-bound wrappers; [3]pp. Offprint. Wrapper edges soiled and briefly chipped along upper margin; perforations for binding at bound edge; Very Good.

Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1923. Original blue cloth, with dust jacket. First Trade Edition (preceded one day earlier by a 377-copy special edition), published before the English edition.~This volume is in fine condition, and the jacket is just about fine as well (very slightly tanned, as usual). Keating 179.~This copy's front free endpaper bears an almost-full-page signed presentation inscription, "Signed at the request of Walter Tittle for Miss Jean Campbell with best wishes by [signed] Joseph Conrad New Year's Day 1924". Sadly, this New Year's Day would be Conrad's last -- as he would die on August 3rd of the year just beginning. On 12 November 1922, Allan Wade (who was then trying to help Conrad get his dramatic version of THE SECRET AGENT onto the stage) had paid a visit to the Conrads' home, bringing with him the American portraitist Walter Tittle (1883-1966), whom Conrad admired; that day Tittle did an etching of Conrad, which would subsequently be selected as the frontispiece for Dent's Collected Edition of his works [1923].~Provenance: small "SJS" bookplate of Stanley J. Seeger -- see Sotheby's Seeger lot #363.

  • Publisher: Printed for Bernard Lintott, at the Cross-Keys, Between the Two Temple-Gates in Fleet-street, London
-1710. Two volumes bound in one. Modern full period-style, paneled leather with marbled endpapers. First Edition. First Printing of Volume Two, and Second Printing (Ford) or Issue (Jaggard) of Volume One, with the four sectional titles dated 1609. The first volume contains: I. Venus and Adonis. II. The Rape of Lucrece. III. The Passionate Pilgrim. IV. Sonnets to Sundry Notes of Musick. The second volume contains: I. One Hundred and Fifty Four Sonnets, all of them in Praise of his Mistress. II. A Lover's Complaint of his Angry Mistress. In this copy, the general title-page serves in lieu of the two volume title-pages, which are not present. According to the bibliographer H. L. Ford, some copies of this printing/issue of Volume One were bound without a volume title. A of Volume Two, containing the famously ambigous dedication ["To the Onlie Begetter of These Insuing Sonnets."] has been advanced to follow the final sectional title-page in Volume One [Sonnets to Sundry Notes of Musicke] to make that title serve as well for the sonnets in Volume Two. Based on the foxing patterns, this was done at an early date. All four sectional titles in Volume One are present. Shakespeare's Sonnets were first published in a Quarto Edition in 1609, of which only a dozen or so copies survive. They were reprinted only once in the 17th century, in 1640 by the publisher John Benson in a bowdlerized version. That book, when complete, now sells at auction for several hundred thousand dollars. Benson changed several pronouns from masculine to feminine, and made about seventy other verbal changes. He also reordered the sonnets, in several cases combining up to five to form single poems, while also haphazardly inter-splicing a corrupt version of the Passionate Pilgrim and several other non-Shakespearean poems. He also omitted eight sonnets altogether (Nos. 18, 19, 43, 56, 75, 76, 96, and 126). Most 18th century editions of Shakespeare's Poetry used Benson's "mangled hodgepodge" as their textual source [Wells, Stanley, and Gary Taylor. William Shakespeare: A Textual Companion]. This is the FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of Shakespeare's complete poems, discounting Benson's edition which omitted the long poems, 'The Rape of Lucrece' and 'Venus and Adonis'. It contains only the THIRD PRINTING of the Sonnets, apparently preceding a reprinting of Benson's version published by Edmund Curll at about the same time. Significantly, Lintott reprinted the 1609 Sonnets line for line, effectively publishing a facsimile edition of that rare First Quarto [Schoenfeldt, M. C. A Companion to Shakespeare's Sonnets]. It is thus not only textually superior to Benson's edition, but it also contains the very first obtainable printing of the eight sonnets that Benson omitted, including one of the most celebrated, Sonnet 18, beginning "Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?" Light to moderate foxing and age-toning. With the ink inscription "Dear Nick/1912" at the head of the general title-page, and without the terminal blank in Volume Two. A Very Good copy, finely bound. Ford p. 38-39. Jaggard p. 434.
