         Peaks & Passes from Dauphiné to Mont Blanc

      1923 - Summer 1923.Photograph album, with 12 leaves. 109 original mounted photographs (various sizes), all with descriptive titles written in ink beneath on white mounts, or framed & titled beneath directly onto album pages in white pen, with one printed card (77 by 51mm approx) & manuscript chart of climbs (53 by 72mm). Oblong 4to. Original boards. [French Alps], The album includes several stunning mountain views, taken during various ascents, along with some fascinating images illustrating the life of the local people on the slopes below, prior to the arrival of the skiing industry. In addition, there are ten photographs of the intrepid mountaineers in their sturdy tweeds, roped to their companions, as they make their way up the mountains, across seracs, and over glaciers. Whilst the images taken at Chamonix certainly show considerable change during the last century, it is those taken arround the villages of Tignes, Val d'Isère and Courmayeur, which demonstrate most clearly the great changes which have taken place over the last seventy years. Accompanied by the first sheet of a letter on copy paper: ?I have just come from a lantern lecture by Miss Woolley. Did you know that she & her sister have climbed Mont Blanc this summer? She took a large number of photographs, & made her own slides from them - so I am very proud of her.? [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Science of Being

      J. F. Tapley Co., New York 1923 - New Age philosophy, lesson plan and elaborate spiritual therapy before there was a "New Age", all built on the notion of a Universal Life Energy. 8vo. 17.5 by 10.5 cm. 329, [2] pp. Striking illustrations and letter devices throughout the text, with gilt used generously to heighten both. Also, the swastika is an omnipresent symbol, but here it predates the appropriation of the symbol by the Nazis and has nothing to do with that movement. Eugene Fersen was born Baron Eugene Fersen to a Russian Grand Duchess, according to a website that seeks to promote his ideas. He had developed his Science of Being, the ideas expounded upon in this book, by 1906. After being investigated by the Justice Department for some years for alleged radicalism, he managed to become a U.S. citizen in 1923. According to the same website, he was a much sought-after lecturer for the rest of his life, and an influence on Rudolf Steiner. He died in 1956. Book condition: edge fraying of silk endpapers. Rubbing of faux alligator surface along edges and at spine extremities. Edge roughness to a prelim blank leaf. Handwriting of prior owner, in part, handsomely done, on prelim blank leaf. A few leaves with flattened creases from prior dog-earing. Overall, clean and an appealing copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Topographie von Oberösterreich, 1674 nebst dessen Landkarte von Oberösterreich, 1669. Neuduck nach den im Oberösterr. Landesarchiv noch vorhand. 234 Orig. Kupferplatten, mit einer Abhandlung über Georg Matthäus Vischer verfaßt von Eduard Straßmayr.

      Linz. R. Pirngruber. 1923 - 0 25 x 35,5 cm. 28 Seiten Text. Mit 222 gestochenen Ansichten und einer aus 12 gefalteten Segmenten bestehenden Karte. Originalleinen. Gutes bis sehr gutes, festes und sauberes Exemplar. Der Einband ist minimal angestaubt und schwach lagerspurig, aber sehr stabil und nirgends defekt. Das Innenleben auf kräftigem Bütten ist insgesamt sehr ansprechend erhalten mit nur unwesentlichen Spuren der Zeit (vorderer Innendeckel etwas berieben). Prächtiges Sammlerstück. Vollständiger Neudruck der "Topographia Austriae Superioris Modernae" (1674) aus dem Jahr 1923. Es handelt sich hier nicht um Reproduktionen der berühmten Ansichten und der großen Karte, sondern um Abzüge von den originalen Kupferplatten von 1674, die sich noch heute vollzählig im oberösterreichischen Landesarchiv befinden. Hergestellt wurde das prächtige Ansichtenwerk von der Universitätsbuchdruckerei Wagner in Innsbruck. Der Kartograph Georg Matthäus Vischer (1628-1696) schloss im Jahre 1667 mit den Ständen des Erzherzogtums Österreich ob der Enns (also Oberösterreichs) einen Vertrag für die Herstellung eine Landeskarte ab. Diese "Archiducatus Austriae Superioris Descriptio facta Anno 1667" genannte Landkarte erschien 1669. Gleichzeitig arbeitete Vischer an einer Topographie Oberösterreichs, für die er ebenfalls einen Auftrag der Landstände hatte. Finanzielle und organisatorische Widrigkeiten verzögerten das Erscheinen der Topographie allerdings bis 1674. Gestochen wurden die Zeichnungen zwischen 1669 und 1674 in Augsburg in verschiedenen Werkstätten. Die Darstellungen beeindrucken durch ihre Detailgenauigkeit und zeigen die Orte vor den großen Veränderungen der Barockzeit am Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts. In vielen Fällen handelt es sich überhaupt um die ältesten Abbildungen, die es von den einzelnen Orten jeweils gibt. Zu sehen sind hier u.a. Linz, Gmunden, Wels, Enns, Mondsee, Freistadt, Traun, Steyr, Aistersheim, Aschach, Kammer, Kremsmünster, Eferding, Engelszell, St. Florian, Mauthausen und Schlägel. Das Werk wurde in einer limitierten und nummerierten Auflage von 1000 Ex. hergestellt. Hier die Nummer 158.
