ANON.,
Homers Odyssee
0. 1802. neu travestiret; oder Ulysses am Zusammenflusse des achtzehnten und neunzehnten Jahrhunderts. "Ithaka im Jahre X". Zu finden in Mannheim bei Schwan und Goetz, 1802; 222, [ii] advertisements, [i] errata, with frontispiece; original blue-grey paper-covered boards; contemporary owner'sname on front pastedown, extremely light stain to top of frontispiece. First, and probably sole edition. A jeu d'esprit which casts a satirical eye on the manners of its period, with a remarkable copper-engraved frontispiece by d'Argent showing the protagonist - in the costume of the late eighteenth century - about to board an air balloon. A second volume is announced on page 222, but we do not believe this ever appeared.

KATIN-YARTSEV, M., & A. SHUMKOV (EDS.)
Costume Ball in the Winter Palace. 2 Volumes. (Kostiumirovannyi Bal V Zimnem Dvortse ) Bi-Lingual English-Russian Edition.
. 2003. Volume 1: Album with photographs with biographical references / Al'bom s fotografiiami i biograficheskimi stat'iami. 464pp. 198 photographs, some in colour Volume 2: Research, documents, materials with added notes and a coloured section of the garments worn which moved through various museums in the 1930-ies. Also added a supplement with photographs of the guests at the ball not included in the album as separate pictures. This 2nd volumes is in English only 128pp. Edition of 4000 copies One hundred years ago the office in charge of editing the State papers started work on the creation of a unique album : that of photogravures and photographs of the guests at the costume ball that took place in the winter Palace on 11 and 13 February 1903. The participants all wore 17th century clothing. In the end it was the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna herself who became the editor-in-chief of this album. Only a few copies of the original album survive in libraries and private collections. This edition is not a reprint of that rare 1904 volume, but it is an attempt by the publishers to show the guests of the ball as we see them today, one hundred years later. It is the scene of a bygone era, the last such event in the history of the House of Romanov. Over one hundred photographs have been traced and these have been provided with full biographical details, although many of these notes finish with the lines "fate after 1917 unknown". A number of photographs not included in the 1904 edition have been added here. The main volume contains the photographs with texts in Russian and English. The photographs measuring 140 x 260 mm are magnificent. The 2nd volume, entirely in English, contains the newly found photographs and editorial materials, modern photographs of some of the uniforms, dresses, clothing surviving in some museums in full colours.
