        Six vintage gelatin silver photographs (each 120 x 177 mm) taken before the fall of Jerusalem on 9 December 1917

      Lengthy captions in pencil on the verso of each photograph are most illuminating, not least because they were inscribed by an Australian soldier in Jerusalem shortly after the fall. He is possibly a member of the 4th Light Horse Brigade, and accordingly a veteran of the famous charge at Beersheba (see below). One of his most important observations is that the photographs were produced by 'the Turkish army photographer who was left behind in Jerry and now sells the prints to us deluded fools at a bondman price'. These comments are among others written on the verso of a photograph of Australian prisoners of war: 'Some of our cavalry, looking pretty dejected, poor devils, at Jerusalem Station. The officer is ours, too. Note the jacko wounded in the rear'. We have traced only one other example of five of these photographs (albeit cropped differently), and two different variants of the sixth, in two named collections in the Library of Congress. The main repository is a pair of albums compiled by John Whiting (image numbers 75, 87, 116 ['Australians captured at Shellal'], 151, 179, and 205 [a variant image]; all of these prints are of an image a centimetre to the right and a centimetre lower than the six on offer). The source of the other variant image is the G. Eric and Edith Matson Photograph Collection. An informative (but not entirely accurate) online article by Issam Nassar, 'John Whiting's Album of the Great War in Palestine', gives details of Jerusalem's American Colony and the photography department it opened in 1898; 'Whiting, along with others including Eric Matson, was one of its leading photographers ... [and Whiting] might be the one who shot most, if not all, of the photographs in the albums'. The captions on this small group of photographs tell a different, more complete, and much more nuanced, story. For example, Whiting's prosaic caption on his number 179, '6th Cavalry Squadron', is more accurately described thus: 'Jacko cavalry on the edge of the plain our 4th L.H. Bde charged over into Beersheba. Taken two days before our attack'. Whiting has on number 205 'Last review by Jamal [sic] Pasha & Von Kress in Jer.', while our almost 70-word account commences with 'Review by Jemal Pasha, Jacko C. in C. on the open ground just south of Jerusalem and on part of which I am at present camped. X is now used as our army post office ...'. All in all, the annotations run to nearly 340 words, not all of them complimentary, no matter what the nationality. In one instance, he writes that 'These pictures will illustrate the fact that we are fighting an army on this front and not a mere ragged rabble as some good folk in Australia - home of the Fenian and cold feet - might be [tempted?] to think'. The photographs are clearly rare by any definition; these unvarnished observations make them uniquely desirable.

Isham's Oriental America and Octoroons and features ornate lettering and an oval half-tone portrait of Isham.

The Octoroon cover is franked with a 2-cent pale carmine Washington stamp (Scott #252), and the other is franked with a 2-cent copper red Trans-Mississippi commemorative. The stamps and covers are in nice shape. One of the envelopes, from the Booking Office of John W. Isham's Oriental America and Octoroons, features a portrait of Isham. The other is from Howley, Haviland & Company, the publishers of the Octoroons' hit song, No Coon Can Come Too Black For Me and features a large, dark-skinned African-American face. The covers are franked with a 2-cent pale carmine Washington stamp (Scott #252) and a 2-cent Trans-Mississippi commemorative (Scott# 286). The stamps and covers are in nice shape. John Isham was an African-American theatrical entrepreneur who broke into advertising and managerial positions by passing for white. By 1890, he had become the advance man for Sam T. Jack's Creole Burlesque Show, the first African American show to replace its male minstrels with beautiful black chorus girls and to feature original songs, sketches and comedy by black artists. His work contributed greatly to the acceptance of quality black entertainment, and he was recognized by the Indianapolis Freeman newspaper as having "done more for the advancement of the colored race in all America than any other man since the day of its emancipation." Isham struck out on his own in 1895, forming what became the Octoroons. The company featured a chorus line and a musical story line that centered on New York City. The Octoroon's were popular with both black and white audiences and toured for five years. It's faced-paced, "reverse-coon" song, No Coon Can Come Too Black For Me, sang the praises of dark-skinned men, "The blacker they come, the better I like 'em. All them yaller babies, I'm bound to slight 'em." Isham created a second sshow, Oriental America, which was the first all-black show to appear on Broadway. By 1898, Isham had three companies, two touring the United States and one traveling throughout Great Britain. He retired in 1900, and turned the shows over to his brother William, who promptly converted them to a low-class "coon-show" that he named King Rastus. As of 2017, OCLC shows no institutions hold any Octoroons, Oriental America, or Howley-Haviland advertising materials. None is for sale in the trade, and no auction records are found at ABPC, the Rare Book Hub, nor Worthpoint.

        The Surgical Complications and Sequels of Typhoid Fever. SIGNED BY WILLIAM W. KEEN.

      Philadelphia: W. B. Saunders, 1898. - 386 pp; 5 plates; text figs. Original cloth. Very Good. First Edition. SIGNED BY WILLIAM W. KEEN: "To Dr. Roland F. Fleck/ with the kind regards of/ W. W. Keen/ Philadelphia/ June 5, 1920." "In 1876, Keen delivered the fifth Toner Lecture on the surgical complications and sequels of continued fevers . which was published in 1877 as a 68 page monograph. In 1896, Keen delivered the Shattuck Lecture before the Massachusetts Medical Society. These lectures formed the basis for his Surgical Complications. He included in the volume the six complications and sequels discussed in his Toner Lecture and added a chapter on the surgical affections of typhoid fever and twelve chapters on complications of particular organs and regions. Most books on complications of surgery were not written until the twentieth century. In this respect Keen's work is quite remarkable" (Rutkow GS178).

        Philosophical Conceptions and Practical Results.

      Berkeley: The University Press,, 1898. The Annual Public Address before the Union. August 26, 1898. Octavo, 24 pp. Original light green wrappers, front wrappers printed in black. Wrappers lightly foxed and browned, an excellent copy. First edition thus of James's lecture in which he first pledged his commitment to pragmatism, delivered before the Philosophical Union in August 1898, considered the "opening gun in James's discourses on pragmatism" (Burkhardt, et al., p. 264) and laying the groundwork for his influential 1907 masterwork. There are two known variant states of the printed wrapper and title page. One accredits James as "Professor of Psychology in Harvard University", and the latter as "M.D., Ph.D., Litt.D., LL.D, Corresponding Member of the French Institute, Professor of Psychology in Harvard University". Our copy shows the latter. Neither state holds priority at present. The lecture was originally published as the lead piece in The University Chronicle in September 1898, and this pamphlet was printed from the standing type in a very small print run. In 1904 James remarked in a letter to the F. J. E. Woodbridge, editor of the Journal of Philosophy, Psychology, and Scientific Methods, that the "address of mine was printed in the Cal. University Magazine which had absolutely no circulation outside. I had 30 reprints which I distributed. Apart from that it can hardly be said to be published" (Burkhardt, et al., p. 266). At the time of writing, James owned two of the remaining 30 copies. Woodbridge would reprint James's slightly revised lecture in his journal later that year under the title "The Pragmatic Method".

        God's Prisoner / The Story of a Crime a Punishment a Redemption

      Hurst and Blackett, Limited, London 1898 - Previous owner has written his name and address (Surrey) and dated 19 April, 1919 in pencil to blank FFE. Book smells slightly musty, but not objectionably so. Original cloth boards were somewhat more colorful; this is likely a re-bind. The first of many novels from William Dunkerley (1852-1941) writing as John Oxenham (the pen name taken from Charles Kingsley's novel "Westward Ho!") His poetry includes "Bees in Amber: a little book of thoughtful verse" (1913), which became a best seller. Dunkerley served as deacon and teacher at the Ealing Congregational Church, west London, from the 1880s. He then moved to Worthing, Sussex, in 1922, where he became the town's mayor. He was a major contributor to Jerome K. Jerome's "The Idler" magazine. In this title, a murderer, "whose soul is God's Prisoner, but whose body is free," summarized The Bookman in 1899, "wanders . . . from end to end of the earth, seeking the peace that can never be found. But, after a time, he does find a measure of relief in doing good and in self-sacrifice -- where real happiness must perhaps always be found." 331 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        FARTHEST NORTH : BEING THE RECORD OF A VOYAGE OF EXPLORATION OF THE SHIP FRAM 1893-96 AND OF A FIFTEEN MONTHS' SLEIGH JOURNEY BY DR NANSEN AND LIEUT JOHANSEN WITH AN APPENDIX BY OTTO SVERDRUP CAPTAIN OF THE FRAM ABOUT ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FULL PAGE AND NUMEROUS TEXT ILLUSTRATIONS AND COLOURED PLATE IN FACSIMILE FROM DR NANSEN'S OWN SKETCHES, PORTRAIT AND MAPS

      George Newnes, London 1898 - Two volumes. Second UK edition - originally published in Norway and UK in 1897. In original, stunning publisher's cloth binding. Large map in back of volume I has a three inch tear - repaired with acid free tape. Nansen led the Fram expedition (1893-1896) with the intent to explore the north pole and the polar basin. The record of this monumental achievement in polar exploration is accompanied by Nansen's own photographs and sketches. Born in Christiana (Oslo) in 1861, Fridtjof Nansen was a multi-talented man who trained as a scientist, earned his doctorate in zoology, contributed to the field of neurological anatomy and worked as a museum curator in Norway. He was a great athlete and champion cross-country skier and he managed to combine his academic interests with his passion for the outdoors and adventure by becoming the first person to cross the unexplored interior of Greenland on skis. The "Farthest North" chonicles his next ambitious trip to the Arctic, the Fram expedition, in which he planned to take advantage of the ocean currents by getting purposefully trapped in the ice pack near Sibera, live in the trapped ship for a year or two while the ocean moved him slowly into position, and then set off by skis and dogs for the final leg. His bold plan involved the development of a new type of ship, which would resist the crushing strength of the polar ice, as well as newly designed sledges, skis and lightweight clothing. Even the crew's diet was extensively researched and planned, with the result that they avoided scurvy and all crewman made it back safely. Nansen returned from almost three years in the Arctic to international acclaim for the voyage and the wealth of scientific discoveries and observations he gathered. The Farthest North became a best-seller. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Chinese and English vocabulary in the Pekinese dialect. By George Carter Stent, Imperial Maritime Customs. Revised by Rev. Donald MacGillivray.

      Shanghai: American Presbyterian Mission Press, 1898 Shanghai: American Presbyterian Mission Press, 1898. Third edition. Half leather cloth with corners. VG+. "(209x137mm.); 1 h., [V]-VII, 788 p.- // Half leather cloth binding with corners; gilt fillet edge of spine and corners. Rubbing to board edges and foot with loss of cloth. Spotless interior without signatures, annotations or any underlining.- // Refs.: Cordier, Sinica, 2ª ed., III, c. 1610. If the elaboration of dictionaries was part of the activities undertaken by Catholic missionaries in America, by both Jesuits and Franciscans, and in Asia by the Jesuits in the 16th and 17th centuries, it also became, from the decade of 1820s, a task for the Protestant evangelists and Biblical societies when they began the last great wave of the spreading of Christianity, in this case Protestant, outside of Europe. Continuing with this global work, the American Presbyterian mission in Shanghai reprinted the third edition of this vocabulary in 1898, the work of maritime customs inspector George Stent. The first edition of Stent s work had been printed in November 1871 by the British customs service in Shanghai, which also published the third and final version in 1877. More than vocabulary, this demonstration of patience includes a long list of phrases, or  narrated concepts , placed in alphabetical order of the transliteration of their pronunciation in the Peking dialect into Latin characters. So that, as the author notes in the brief preface, it is a vocabulary that takes its starting point from any expression that has previously been heard and, by its sound, provides information about how it is written in pictograms, what the meaning of the basic concept that comes into play is, and the major  ideas that can be built from it, as well as the writing of these related  ideas in pictograms. And as if that was not complicated enough, the author, so he indicated in the preface of the first edition, absent in this edition, set for himself the limit of not taking but one line per entry to simultaneously facilitate the organization of the information in columns and made it easier to search for the vocabulary."
