        [Photo Album]: White Mountains of New Hampshire

      New Hampshire. [circa 1895 - 1905]. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 7.5" x 12". Textured tan leather over stiff paper boards with "Photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 70 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 3.5" x 5.5" and 5.75" x 8", some with captions in the negative. Very good photo album with rubbing and edgewear with near fine photographs.A beautiful collection of turn of the century photography primarily of Gorham, New Hampshire taken by C.H. Hobbs. The album was compiled by a professional photographer and contains images that were probably taken with commercial use in mind. Gorham is located in the White Mountains and relies heavily on tourism for town revenue. The album opens with views of Gorham and classic American small town charm including a horse-drawn carriage and a photo of the Alpine Photographic Studio. The photos also show the rolling hills and mountains just beyond the town. One photo shows a winter scene of a road, another shows a small church surrounded by houses and immature pine trees, others show the town from Prospect Ledge just outside the borders giving an entire view of the community. One particularly wonderful photograph shows the Androscoggin River with a photographic effect which makes the water appear painted into the image. Another photo shows the Second Crawford House, the largest resort in the White Mountains at the time, as seen through the Crawford Notch. Following this there is a photo of the Tip Top House, "the oldest surviving building on the summit of Mount Washington" which is believed to be "the oldest extant mountain-top hostelry in the world." Later in the album the photos focus on the various waterfalls of the region as well as lakes and other waterways. The photos also feature Bretton Woods, Poland Springs, and Shelburne, New Hampshire. The end of the album is primarily compiled of portrait photographs including group photos of young girls and cabinet cards featuring fashionably dressed Victorian women.A wonderful collection of exquisite and well-composed photography taken presumably to promote tourism in the White Mountain region of New Hampshire. .

He is one of the first to disclose magic tricks and this book, which could probaly bought at his show for half a dollar, explains and illustrates these. The illustrations, from various sources and sourcerers are a mix of exotic, mainly Asian, spiritual rituals, penny-dreadful-style scenes, and visualizations of magic tricks.

        Catalogue of the marine mollusks of Japan with descriptions of new species and notes on others collected by Frederick Stearns.

      Detroit, Frederick Stearns, 1895. 8vo (22.7 x 14.6 cm). viii, 196 pp., 11 lithographed, engraved, and phototype plates. Publisher's green full cloth with gilt title on the front board. Floral patterned endpapers.= The preface states that Frederick Stearns visited Japan twice and collected many new and little known molluscs. Stearns made a simple catalogue, with one plate, of the shells collected during his first visit, but it was Henry Pilsbry who reviewed the material more thoroughly, and published part of the results in the "Proceedings of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia", and in "The Nautilus". This work, published by Stearns, contains the catalogue and results, as well as a great deal of additional information. Apart from this simply yet elegantly bound edition, there also seems to be one in wrappers (cf. Junk cat. 278). A very good, clean copy. Rare, especially in this state.

"These Views" refers to the two volume book, published 1895-6, by Stanton criticizing the Bible's presentation of women as subservient to men. The broadside includes quotes from "The Woman's Bible" noting the page numbers. Within the suffrage movement, many women opposed the publication of "The Woman's Bible" out of concern that the book would antagonize not only current supporters but limit expansion of the suffrage movement. Overall condition is very good.

        Catalogue of the marine mollusks of Japan with descriptions of new species and notes on others collected by Frederick Stearns.

      - Detroit, Frederick Stearns, 1895. 8vo (22.7 x 14.6 cm). viii, 196 pp., 11 lithographed, engraved, and phototype plates. Publisher's green full cloth with gilt title on the front board. Floral patterned endpapers.= The preface states that Frederick Stearns visited Japan twice and collected many new and little known molluscs. Stearns made a simple catalogue, with one plate, of the shells collected during his first visit, but it was Henry Pilsbry who reviewed the material more thoroughly, and published part of the results in the "Proceedings of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia", and in "The Nautilus". This work, published by Stearns, contains the catalogue and results, as well as a great deal of additional information. Apart from this simply yet elegantly bound edition, there also seems to be one in wrappers (cf. Junk cat. 278). A very good, clean copy. Rare, especially in this state. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ALBUM CONTAINING FORTY-FOUR PHOTOGRAPHS OF LATE 19th CENTURY BERMUDA, COMPILED BY A NEW YORK TOURIST].

      Bermuda. ca. 1895. - 44 silver gelatin photographs, each 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. Maroon pebbled cloth album. Light shelf wear, some water damage to front board. Photos mounted directly to thick card stock. Light wear to edges of a few images. Very good. An engaging photograph album that documents a late 19th- century voyage to Bermuda. The photographer left New York on a steamer operated by A.E. Outerbridge & Co., one of the early organizers of tours to Bermuda for American vacationers. Much as today, they advertised the climate as a perfect choice for the discerning and well-to-do winter vacationer. The album begins at the point of departure, with images of the pier in New York and the steamer conveying tourists to Bermuda. The ship arrives in Hamilton, and there are a series of harbor and town images, including the docks and port, the town's Front Street, several hotels, and beach scenes. The album also contains numerous images of rural Bermuda, its estates and plantations, landscapes, locals working and in transit, and animal life. An attractive vernacular assemblage that depicts Bermuda at the end of the 19th century and testifies to the island's emerging tourist industry.

        BLAKE OF THE "RATTLESNAKE" OR THE MAN WHO SAVED ENGLAND: A STORY OF TORPEDO WARFARE IN 189- ..

      London: Tower Publishing Company Limited, 1895.. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5 [6] 7-269 [270: blank] [271-272: ads], sixteen inserted plates and other illustrations and diagrams in the text by Jane, original pictorial gray-green cloth, front panel stamped in red and black, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. The first of Jane's four scientific romances. An account of future sea warfare by a naval authority and future compiler of yearly catalogues of ships and aircraft. "War against France and Russia in torpedo-carrying ships, with love melodrama around hero. He dies saving England, after her fleet has been destroyed because of coal miners' strike. Bloody-minded anti civilian militarism." - Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 61. "I would say one final word to those who object to these 'future war yarns,' on the grounds that they are likely to set other nations, at present friendly to us, by the ears. Foreign writers are frequently turning out similar stories, describing the utter destruction of the British Navy by their own; yet I never heard of any of us bearing them ill-will for it. May our Warfare of the Future long be confined to the pages of books; as, indeed, it will be, so long as foreign nations know that we are ready to tackle the lot of them if need be." - (from the author's "preface") The author's illustrations are quite interesting from an artistic point of view and, especially in the scenes of nocturnal combat, have an impressionistic quality, a touch of Turner. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1171. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 443. Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 21.

        Almayer’s Folly: a Story of an Eastern River.

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1895. 8vo, 272pp. Original green cloth, gilt-stamped on backstrip, top edge gilt. Covers a bit rubbed and stained, corners worn, approx. 26 pp. show small repairs to inside edge not affecting text block. Quarter dark green morocco slipcase. First edition, first issue, of Conrad’s first book. A significant association copy commemorating the literary and personal relationship of Joseph Conrad and Edward Garnett. By urging T. Fisher Unwin to publish Conrad’s first book, Almayer’s Folly, Garnett had launched Conrad’s career and the two subsequently became close friends. This copy marks the beginning of that friendship although interestingly Garnett inscribed it “E libris Edward Garnett” and gave it to Dr. Arthur Maude who also signed in pencil. Pasted in the front is the final page of a letter in Conrad’s hand in pencil. A few pencil notes in the text could be Garnett or more likely by Maude. We recently had Garnett’s copy of Tales of Unrest, from a different collection. Wise, Ashley Library, Vol. 1, p. 231.
