        CHINESE PHOTO ALBUM, COMMEMMORATING THE VISIT OF THE WELCOMING OF THE AMERICAN M

      [China c.1897.]Half leather over brocade silk, most of spine. gone, else very good, 69 b.w. photos, most are 14.5 x 9 cm.,. some panoramas 8.5 x 30 cm., one large photo 27 x 21.5 cm.. all edge gilt, clean solid copy. Q U I T E R A R E. A very unusual album of photographs showing the tour of what appears to be American Business community members & their wives. Arrival in Kwantung, tour of the Ming tombs, panoramic ! * Photos of early Canton area, sea coast, the Great Wall, a trip up the Yangtze, city streets, river/canal scenes, elegant banquets with High Chinese military & political figures, and the last & largest photograph depicts the whole group of American & Kwantung Chinese Merchant Advisory Board in a commemorative photograph. * Also some excellent images of an early and primitive Macao, lovely panoramas of that old Portuguese city, the hills around city, river & bay with the city rising up the gentle slope, with a good number of old Chinese junks anchored in the harbor. * The Chinese title above the grand panorama reads: "Guang Dong Zhi Xin Ju Haun Yin Mei Guo Sang Hui Ji Nian:" "IN COMMEMMORATION OF THE WELCOMING OF THE AMERICAN MERCHANT ASSOCIATION BY THE CANTON ADVISORY BOARD." * Consists of about 22 pages of tipped in clear, bright & good focus original photographs. The most fascinating of them is the last group memorial photo of the Canton Advisory Board & all of the Americans & their wives, as posed for the camera. In the front row are what one may assume are the most prominent and important members. * Central to one American who has a striking resemblance to the Roosevelt [yes the Famous Roosevelts !!!] family, is a very gaunt & small Chinese holding a long stick, with a flag, wearing a traditional long Chinese robe. One other Chinese is seated in the front row, and he is a be speckled solid man with an alert bearing. Other members are standing behind in ordered rows, with an occasional American naval officer peeking in from the left and a few small Chinese boys also peeking in from the far right in bewilderment. Many of the members also hold some sort of a commemorative flag, with the Advisory Board name embroidered upon it. * The whole group is found before a most handsome and great Chinese architectural building with elaborate windows. The album is without any text whatsoever, but based on the title found on the last photograph, one can deduce the rest. Of particular interest is a nice photo of a Chinese altar. This has an embroidered cloth over it, with Chinese characters that read: Guan Xi Er Si San Nian Men [?] Ji dan or Twenty- third year of Guangxi ie 1897, Birthday to indicate an auspicious day for a religious festive day, thus the Chinese brought the Americans to the temple to celebrate the happy occasion. * Other photographs clearly represent a graphic record of the arrival to Canton, the places they were guided to by the Advisory Board members, archaeological monuments, old shrines, the Great Wall [indicating a trip to the North], temples, Ming tombs, with a host of wonderful street scenes, Macau views, nice photos of the local Chinese and the jaunty Americans in straw hats, canes, spats, while the American women wore great hats, long skirts and long-sleeved white blouses as the posed for the camera. They were often conveyed in mule-drawn carts with a Chinese groom leading them. * Other travel was by ship up and down the canals of Canton, photos of the Government buildings, altars, roof tops [from their hotel room ??] showing the city, the bay with ships, and a trip up the Yangtze [?] or some other great river in a motor boat, showing their Occidental crew beside a very well set table. A poignant view of a slow-paced China of a past century. * Albums of this subject, are always SCARCE, full of great period original photographs and views of China & Macao. A lovely record taken by a member of the American group for posterity. * Color scans can be sent by email. Images displayed may not be the actual copy in stock for sale at any given time; if you want to see the exact image of the book or edition in stock, please request this by email and an image will be returned to you by attachment. * * * * BUY WITH .

        Map of the Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming with full descriptions of mineral resources, etc.

      Custer City, SD [map printed in Philadelphia]: Samuel Scott [map printed by E. P. Noll & Co], 1897. Small octavo. (7 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches). pp. [2], 1-40. 1 folding chromolithographed map (sheet size: 31 x 28 1/2 inches) after Scott, published by E.P. Noll & Co of Philadelphia. Original brown cloth, the upper cover lettered in gilt "Rocks, / Minerals, / and other / Resources / of the / Golden / Black Hills / of / South Dakota / and / Wyoming" Provenance: Annotated in pencil by a single hand. A prospector's copy of this interesting survey, the issue with the coloured map: "the first book on descriptive mineralogy of the Black Hills. Today highly sought after as a Black Hills mining relic" (Loomis). This work was published with the fine map coloured (as here) or uncoloured. Scott's large map of the Black Hills region depicts topographic features and various towns, including Deadwood, Sturgis, and Custer City. "For legibility, and for tracing streams to their sources, this is still a useful map of the Hills" (Jennewein). The present example is annotated in pencil with notes suggesting that the original owner of this map was attempting to set up a prospecting/mining operation near Clifton, Wyoming, in the south west corner of the Black Hills. Further notes on the verso of the map and the facing page suggest that the unidentified individual was looking for manganese. L. Leonard Jennewein, Black Hills Booktrails , 229; Thomas A.

        SOME GERMAN WOODCUTS OF THE FIFTEENTH CENTURY.

      Hammersmith, Kelmscott Press, 1897.Thirty - five reproductions from printed books in the library of William Morris, 1897. 4to, approximately 300 x 215 mm, 12 x 8½ inches, pages: xi, 23 leaves illustrating woodcuts with some text, printed and numbered on rectos only, then pages 24 - 36 and last leaf with colophon, Kelmscott monogram, some pages have a pale watermark in the inner margin, but it is difficult to make out the design. Printed in red and black in Golden type, bound in plain dark blue cloth of the period, cut out paper title mounted on upper cover, edges untrimmed. Binding a little rubbed and scratched with a few small indentations to upper cover, head of spine bumped, first page of the woodcuts has a shallow crease to lower corner, a few other light creases to margins of pages with woodcuts, not affecting images, edges of pages have slight rippling, pale age - browning to endpapers, otherwise a clean crisp copy. NOT IN THE ORIGINAL KELMSCOTT BINDING. Of these thirty - five reproductions twenty - nine were all that were done of a series chosen by Mr. Morris to illustrate a catalogue of his library, and the other six were prepared by him for an article in the 4th number of Bibliographica, part of which is reprinted as an introduction to the book. The process blocks (with one exception) were made by Walker & Boutall, and are of the same size as the original cuts. Limited edition of 225 copies plus 8 vellum copies, the limitation not printed in the book. See Willan Peterson, A Bibliography of the Kelmscott Press, pages 131 - 134, No. A49. The binding is of the time and the paper label looks like paper and type used by the Kelmscott Press. According to Peterson the book sold out and orders kept coming in, and many customers were disappointed so it could have been a rejected copy due to a small crease in the margin of the first illustration? Obviously this is speculation. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        SALESMAN'S ALBUM With 60 PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGES Of INDIAN MOTORCYCLES

      N.D. [ca late 1930s]., [ca late 1930s]. This a presumed company-issued production, no doubt targeted for those who already owned an Indian Motorcycle franchise, or generated for traveling company representatives, allowing prospective buyers, such as police departments, to view the entire product line. Photographs measure 6-3/4” x 9-3/8”, with 3-4 line captions beneath. They are mounted mounted back to back with wire rod at top, in a flip frame, all housed in a zipper-closed full leather portfolio measuring 13 3/4" x 12 1/4." We find no bibliographical record of another such album being offered, and believe the album to have been produced in limited numbers. This visual offering begins with the Indian Thirty-Fifty, Model 540. The grouping of photos include the models and new features of each cycle available. Some have been airbrushed to delete the backgrounds and insure a faithful representation. These include the: Model 337-Standard Indian Y Chief; Model 637-Standard Sport Scout 45; Model 437-Sport Indian Four; Model 537-Indian Junior Scout; Model 237- Standard Indian Scout 45. Next are the photographs showing the special models for that year (with the above models being factory direct). They include; Indian Police Special Seventy-four; Police Special Indian Four; Indian Four (model 441 with four-cylinder air-cooled in-line engine”); Indian Chief Seventy-four (Model 341); Standard Body Indian Dispatch Car; Large Body Indian Dispatch Car; Indian Thirtyfifty (Model 540); Indian Sport Scout 45 (Model 641); Indian Thirty-fifty (Model 541); Side Van Commercial Indian Motorcycle; Indian Police Car; Indian Dispatch Tow Model DT-27; Indian Dispatch Tow Model DT-33; Indian Dispatch Tow Model DT-29, etc. The DT models are all three-wheel vehicles for either police use or delivery companies. Many of the remainder of the photographs show Indian Motorcycles in use, with numerous pictures of various police departments that had adopted Indians for their use. Some of the police departments include Denver Police Department, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Iowa Highway Patrol, Illinois State Highway Maintenance Police, New York City Police, Pennsylvania State Highway Patrol. Massachusetts State Police. In the mid-30s Indian was in fierce competition with Harley-Davidson to provide police departments across the county with motorcycles. Also included are various transformations of the Dispatch Models including a fine one of a fleet of the custom built DTs for the Biltmore Florist of Los Angeles. There is also an armored Indian with armored side car (with two police officers seated and machine guns jutting out the front), another full page photograph of a fleet or armored motorcycles in Peru, and one racing photograph and one rally photograph. The “Indian Motorcycle Co.,” represented visually herein by a birds-eye view of their factory in Springfield, MA, "was originally founded as the Hendee Manufacturing Company by George M. Hendee in 1897, manufacturing bicycles. Carl Oscar Hedstrom joined in 1900. Both Hendee & Hedstrom were former bicycle racers and manufacturers, and they teamed up to produce a motorcycle with a 1.75 bhp, single-cylinder engine; this was accomplished in Hendee’s home town of Springfield. The bike was successful and sales increased dramatically during the next decade. In 1901, a prototype and two production units of the diamond framed Indian Single were successfully designed, built & tested. The first Indian motorcycles, having chain drives and streamlined styling, were sold to the public in 1902. In 1903, Indian’s co-founder and chief engineer Oscar Hedstrom set the world motorcycle speed record (56 mph). The Scout and Chief V-twins, introduced in the early 1920s, became the Springfield firm’s most successful models. Designed by Charles B. Franklin, the middleweight Scout and larger Chief shared a 42-degree V-twin engine layout. Both models gained a reputation for strength and reliability. In 1930, Indian merged with DuPont Motors. DuPont Motors founder E. Paul DuPont ceased production of DuPont automobiles and concentrated the company’s resources on Indian. Models of that era had Indian’s famous head-dress logo on the gas tank. Indian’s huge Springfield factory was known as the Wigwam, and native American imagery was much used in advertising. In 1940, Indian sold nearly as many motorcycles as its major rival, Harley-Davidson. At the time, Indian represented the only true American-made heavyweight cruiser alternative to Harley-Davidson." Indian’s most popular models were the Scout, made from 1920 to 1946, and the Chief, made from 1922 to 1953. Unfortunately, the company went bankrupt in 1953. Today, the vintage cycle enjoys much popularity among enthusiasts, with models from the era displayed herein being offered for 5-figure sums. Modest wear to the portfolio spine. Light wear to edges of photographs. Very good plus.

Nous les retrouvons presque toutes dans le présent recueil, beaucoup plus riche et fourni. Quelques tirages albuminés sont un peu passés, sinon, bel état général. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Issued as part of Neely's "Prismatic Library." A collection of short fiction, dedicated to William Randolph Hearst, written by a journalist associated with the Hearst papers in New York and San Francisco. All but one of the nine "Fibs" are sensational, fantastic or criminous stories; "The Protoplasmic Misadventures of Hans Jorgensen," a science fiction horror story of the discovery of jelly-like living prehistoric organic matter preserved on an uncharted volcanic island in the North Pacific near the Aleutian Islands; "Down to the Medulla," a vivisectionist experimenting with the human brain turns a condemned criminal into a living vegetable; "Taken Under Advisement," a clever tale of a killer who almost outwits the law; "Old Lick's Ghost: A California Christmas Story," a rationalized ghost story; "If Thine Enemy Thirst," a horrific revenge story set in a lifeboat at sea after a shipwreck; "He Kept the Engagement," a romantic courtship story; "The Magic Mirror," a sailor gives his sweetheart an ancient Persian mirror in which she sees his fatal love affair with another man's wife; "How I Had 'Em! A Blue- Ribbon Romance," a hallucinating drunk is tormented by the Devil and his Imps; "To Freeze Out England," a humorous tall tale in which the Fenians plot to change the climate in England by blocking the Gulf Stream; the project is stalled due to lack of money to buy bricks. Stories and sketches in the style of Bierce, Morrow and Milne, although not as polished. Vivian "had a fondness for the fanciful and could make the seemingly impossible appear very probable . Vivian was gifted with a vivid imagination, which enabled him to conceive the impossible and describe it as an actuality in a convincing manner. He wrote many special articles for the SUNDAY CHRONICLE, and struck a novel note as often as any writer for the American press." - Young, Journalism in California, pp. 103 and 132. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Not in Hubin (1994). Wright (III) 5701 (citing a 1900 Fenno edition). Not in Baird and Greenwood. Just a touch of rubbing to cloth at spine ends and corner tips, a bright, nearly fine copy. This Neely first edition is quite scarce. (#151802) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        SOME GERMAN WOODCUTS OF THE FIFTEENTH CENTURY.

      Hammersmith, Kelmscott Press, 1897.. Thirty-five reproductions from printed books in the library of William Morris, 1897. 4to, approximately 300 x 215 mm, 12 x 8½ inches, pages: xi, 23 leaves illustrating woodcuts with some text, printed and numbered on rectos only, then pages 24-36 and last leaf with colophon, Kelmscott monogram, some pages have a pale watermark in the inner margin, but it is difficult to make out the design. Printed in red and black in Golden type, bound in plain dark blue cloth of the period, cut out paper title mounted on upper cover, edges untrimmed. Binding a little rubbed and scratched with a few small indentations to upper cover, head of spine bumped, first page of the woodcuts has a shallow crease to lower corner, a few other light creases to margins of pages with woodcuts, not affecting images, edges of pages have slight rippling, pale age-browning to endpapers, otherwise a clean crisp copy. NOT IN THE ORIGINAL KELMSCOTT BINDING. Of these thirty-five reproductions twenty-nine were all that were done of a series chosen by Mr. Morris to illustrate a catalogue of his library, and the other six were prepared by him for an article in the 4th number of Bibliographica, part of which is reprinted as an introduction to the book. The process blocks (with one exception) were made by Walker & Boutall, and are of the same size as the original cuts. Limited edition of 225 copies plus 8 vellum copies, the limitation not printed in the book. See Willan Peterson, A Bibliography of the Kelmscott Press, pages 131-134, No. A49. The binding is of the time and the paper label looks like paper and type used by the Kelmscott Press. According to Peterson the book sold out and orders kept coming in, and many customers were disappointed so it could have been a rejected copy due to a small crease in the margin of the first illustration? Obviously this is speculation. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.
