1973 edition of Anton Chekhov Selected Works in Two Volumes Volume1: Stories and Volume 2: Plays. I will post two separate posts for each volume “What does Chekhov mean to me? He is my friend, he is a great writer, a great playwright, and a great man. From time to time he comes to see me, sits down here besides me, and we talk. He joins Shakespeare,Shaw,Whitman and others, and I very much enjoy my time spent in their company. Scholars too join us, men and women who have given us knowledge or freed us from many diseases. There are not many great people among us. But we know them, we take pleasure in their conversation, and we are happy that they blend in with us. Chekhov is invariably in the centre. Now he was a man born with a silver spoon in his mouth. A poet like Whitman; a playwright, like Shakespeare; a great man, as they all are; he seems to be a combination of them all. But Chekhov is more than this. He is a friend.” ~ From recollections of Sean O’Casey Maxim Gorky; the great Russian Author once wrote about his visit to Chekhov as “ Once he invited me to the village Kout-chouk-Koy where he had a tiny strip of land and a white, two-storied house. There, while showing me his “estate,” he began to speak with animation: “If I had plenty of money, I should build a sanatorium here for invalid village teachers. You know, I would put up a large, bright building—very bright, with large windows and lofty rooms. I would have a fine library, different musical instruments, bees, a vegetable garden, an orchard. . . . There would be lectures on agriculture, mythology. . . . Teachers ought to know everything, everything, my dear fellow.” #russianbooks #sovietbooks #russianliterature #chekhov #antonchekhov #progresspublishers #radugapublishers #shortstories #shortstory #russianbooks #sovietliterature #sovietunion #booksbooksbooks #lovestories #maximgorky #library #doctor #seanocasey #lovebooks #rarebooks #oldbooks #marxism #stories #storiesofrussia #levtolstoy

20. yüzyılın 'Savaş ve Barış’ı' kabul edilen Yaşam ve Yazgı romanının yazarı Vasili Grossman, edebiyatçı kimliğinin yanısına iyi bir savaş muhabiriydi. İkinci Dünya Savaşı’nın en çatışmalı döneminde Donetsk, Stalingrad, ve Kursk'ta Almanlarla savaşan Kızıl Ordu saflarında cephe muhabiri olarak görev yaptı. Cephede uzun süre kalan Grossman, askerlerle konuşuyordu; çünkü savaş hakkındaki asıl gerçeği onların aktardığına inanıyordu. Böyle bir ortamda kaleme alınan Savaş'ta Bir Yazar, sıcak çatışmanın içinden hakiki gözlemler içeriyor. . #edebiyat #günlük #anı #tarih #söyleşi #savaş #asker #kitap #nadirkitap #book #rarebooks

Rare book. The Book of Canaries and Cage Birds printed by Cassell 1870s full of fabulous colour plates from memory around 60 The book is together but not pristine as expected with a rare old book. Plates could be framed seperately for decorative use as they are fabulous and quality prints. These books do not come along every day and are hard to find but you can find it in our display cabinet on our @vintage_etc.au stall @butlersvintagedepot Olinda photos courtesy of Lisa #birds#birdbook#colourplates#birdprints#wallart#framing#colourprints#quality#rarebooks#hardtofind#rare#canaries#parrots#victorianbooks#countryhouse#scholar#birdstudy#ornathology#vintagehomedecor#interiors#vintage#vintage_etc#cassellandcompany

Bouhours - Les entretiens d’Ariste et d’Eugene - seconde édition - Dominique Bouhours, né le 15 mai 1628 à Paris où il est mort le 27 mai 1702, est un prêtre jésuite, grammairien, biographe et apologiste français - - Plusieurs de ses ouvrages sont consacrés à la défense des Remarques sur la langue française de Vaugelas et à l'éloge du français. Dans la deuxième partie de ses Entretiens d'Ariste et d'Eugène, livre violemment attaqué par Jean Barbier d'Aucour dans ses Sentiments de Cléante sur les Entretiens d'Ariste et d'Eugène mais qui connaîtra un vif succès dans toute l'Europe jusqu'à la Révolution, il écrit par exemple : « De toutes les prononciations, la nôtre est la plus naturelle et la plus unie. Les Chinois et presque tous les peuples de l’Asie chantent ; les Allemands râlent ; les Espagnols déclament ; les Italiens soupirent ; les Anglais sifflent. Il n’y a proprement que les Français qui parlent. » Et encore : « Il n’y a guère de pays dans l’Europe où l’on n’entende le françois et il ne s’en faut rien que je ne vous avoue maintenant que la connaissance des langues étrangères n’est pas beaucoup nécessaire à un François qui voyage. Où ne va-t-on point avec notre langue ? » Aussi, dans sa Manière de bien penser, il revient longuement sur l'universalité de la langue française et la supériorité de l'esprit français, thèmes qui feront un siècle plus tard le bonheur de Rivarol et de ses émules. #litteraturefrancaise #litterature #academiefrancaise #oldbooks #rarebooks #engraving

foundobjects_

Inaugural post! My first found object is a Victorian era travel journal, written by a woman named Susannah (Hack) Weynton. . Susannah's husband was the Hudson's Bay Co. ship "Cowlitz'" captain, and in her journal (written 1849-1851), Susannah details her travels aboard this ship to places from London to the Pacific Northwest via Cape Horn and Hawaii. The back of the journal contains entries by her sister, Clarissa Hack, written on another voyage in 1852, upon which Clarissa went with Susannah, her husband, and their child. . . The journal is a lovely example of beautiful penmanship and Susannah establishing a set of conventions for herself in her journalling: in image 2 for example (swipe left!), there are no margins on the first page of the journal, but by the middle of the journal (image 1), there is a clear marked margin with a reading aid called a gloss along side the text (a short summary or caption of the section it is alongside). . Book is in holdings at @ubclibrary Rare Books and Special Collections, FC3817.1 W497 1849. #rarebooks #rbsc #specialcollections #ubc #c19 #19thcentury #handwritten #journal #traveljournal #womenswriting #yesshewrote #book #bookstagram #oldbook #foundobjects #library

A fine selection of rare academic volumes including Thomas Gisborne’s “Duties of Men” and “Duties of Women” written in 1795 and 1797, respectively. These works, while controversial to some, emphasized the social hierarchy and were important in the development of sociological principles and political philosophy. . . . . #book #books #bookstagram #bookshelf #oldbooks #vintage #old #vintagebooks #literature #philosophy #library #bookworm #rare #rarebooks #likeforlikes #likeforlike #likeforfollow #like4like #like4likes #likeforlikeback #follow #followtrain #followme #follow4like #followforfollowback #like4follow #liker

Queer People and their Kweer Kapers, by Palmer Cox (yes that’s right 🙄😂) 1890, very rare edition of fairy tales by the creator of the Famous Brownie Books. This one is Birds that Talk, Giants that flee, beasts that think, insects that flirt, sprites that dance. This book was rebound and contains 3 generations of family history inscribed briefly in the front. Interior pages are soiled, an a couple areas have some old tape repairs, but I cannot find another 1890 edition currently available on the market. 274 pages in total. Asking $100 with free USA shipping. #rarebooks #fairies @fairytales #brownies #queerpeople #palmercox #oldbooks #victorianbooks #victorianfairytales #oddities #mythicalcreatures

For Sale - Link In BIO © 1948. First Edition. by Earl Leaf (9" x 6") . Earl Leaf was a photographer who ventured to the Caribbean fascinated with dance and its eroticism. Isles of Rythm is an in-depth documentation of the African influence in the music of the islands, the dances that evolved from those rhythms, and religious practices. He was far from subtle in describing his subjects with racial and sexual provocative commentary, but his ability in documenting his observations and experiences is extraordinarily intuitive. The photographs are uncanny and a unique representation of the Caribbean in the late 1940s. . #TheCaribbean #Cuba #OldCuba #Havana #LaHabana #OldHavana #LaHabanaVieja #CubanHistory #TrinidadandTobago #Jamaica #JamaicanHistory #Haiti #HaitianHistory #LatinMusic #Rumba #Mambo #Conga #Santeria #Voodoo #AfroLatin #History #WestIndies #RareBooks #OldBooks #VintageBooks #BookStores #VintageBooksForSale #1940s #1950s #Miami
