        A Pictorial Description of Broadway.

      New York: The Mail & Express Co., 1899. - Oblong narrow folio, (6 x 17 inches). Advertisement (pale stain to first few leaves). 37 chromolithographed sheets, printed on both sides Original publisher's pictorial paper wrappers (rebacked with linen, some chipping and staining), preserved in a folding blue cloth slipcase lettered in gilt (chip to lower corner, hinge starting). First edition. A series of beautiful chromolithographs that chronicle the main thoroughfare of Broadway "from Steamship Row and Bowling Green to 59th Str." (Holden). Gray calls it a precursor to the photographic books that became popular after the turn of the century, commenting that it "forms a baseline, however unsatisfactory, for documentation of that street" (Gray, ed. p. iii). The Mail & Express Company was the publisher of the Evening Mail, a New York City daily newspaper. This is an important block-by-block record of what Broadway looked like at the turn of the 20th century. "Established in 17th-century Dutch New York, Broadway grew with the city, not only as a thoroughfare but as a conveyance of an expanding city, carrying progress with the tide of time, section by section, with each part reinventing itself after the older Broadway and New York moved on It was Broadway that carried the growing city. Broadway's expansion took it to the environs of Columbus Circle as the city was preparing to unify itself in the 1890s, but anticipating the next century's growth, outlying paths known as the Boulevard and the Bloomingdale Road were rebuilt, widened, and made part of Broadway" (Gabrielan, p. 7). Randall Gabrielan, "Along Broadway." Christopher Gray, ed. "Fifth Avenue, 1911, from Start to Finish in Historic Block-by-Block Photographs." Holden 1944.

        Original Studio Portrait of Lt.-Colonel Sam Steele, Lord Strathcona Horse

      Montreal: Wm. Notman & Son. 1899. (Photograph) Very good. Original Photograph on embossed Notman studio card with glassine envelope. Card: 10 3 / 8" X 6 1 / 4" Image: 7 1 / 4" X 3 1 / 2". Original Portrait Col. Sam Steele. Samuel Benfield Steele 1851 - 1919 Photographer: Wm. Notman & Son., Montreal. Ca. 1899 Neg # 137436 Major General Sir Samuel Benfield Steele, CB, KCMG, MVO (January 5, 1851 – January 30, 1919) was a famous member of the North West Mounted Police.He joined the local militia as a teenager and fought against the Fenians at the Battle of Ridgeway. He was sent west first to fight the Red River Rebellion of Louis Riel, but arrived after the Métis had surrendered. Steele had long been fascinated by the west, devouring the works of James Fenimore Cooper in his youth. He was especially interested in the First Nations, and spent his time in the west learning from them and the Metis. However he was recalled from Manitoba and based in Fort Henry in Kingston for the next few years.He was chosen to be one of the first members of the NWMP, being only the third officer sworn in. In 1873 he returned to Fort Garry with the new force and was put in charge of drilling the new recruits. Over the next few years he crisscrossed the prairies, before being assigned to NWMP headquarters to train new recruits.In 1881 he was assigned to meet with Sitting Bull, who fresh from defeating General Custer had moved into Canada and was demanding land for his people. Steele and a few officers met them and reached a peaceful agreement. This action won Steele great acclaim in the newspapers of the United States and was the beginning of his role as a public figure.In the North-West Rebellion Steele was dispatched with a small force. Missing the Battle of Batoche Steele and his force were sent to move against the last rebel force lead by Chief Big Bear. Steele and his two dozen Mounties defeated Big Bear's force at Loon Lake in the last battle ever fought on Canadian territory. The contributions of the NWMP to putting down the rebellion went largely ignored and unrewarded, to Steele's great annoyance. Steele spent the next ten years assigned to Fort McLeod, and at age 41 married Maria Harwood, eventually the couple had three children.In 1898 he was sent north to the Yukon to succeed Charles Constantine with policing during the Klondike Gold Rush. Initially, he was in charge of the customs posts at the Chilkoot Pass and White Pass, where he created the rule that no one would be allowed to enter without a ton of goods. Steele and his force made the Klondike Gold Rush into one of the most orderly events of its kind in history and made the police force famous around the world, which ensured its survival at a critical time when the force's dissolution was being debated in parliament.In 1900 he was second in command in Lord Strathcona's Horse, a Canadian light cavalry unit sent to South Africa during the Boer war and did so with distinction. Steele, however, disliked greatly what he was ordered to do by the British, which included burning towns and moving the populace to concentration camps.Steele was knighted in 1918 and was made a Companion of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George, and Member of the Royal Victorian Order.Canada's fifth tallest mountain, Mount Steele, is named after him..

        Le Cinquiéme Acte [in l'Aurore, no. 694, 12 sept. 1899].

      - Paris, 1899. [61,5x45,5 cm]. 4 pages. Folded twice. Slightly yellowed and with some light creases. A very well-preserved copy. Zola's text covers 4 of the 6 columns on the front page. Le Cinquième Acte, published in september 1899, was the fourth of altogether seven articles and open letters published by Zola in l Aurore between 1898 and 1900 in favour of the French Army captain of Jewish and Alsatian descent Alfred Dreyfus, charged with treason in 1894 in a much-publicized affaire. In the article Zola expresses his outrage with the military tribunal in Rennes where Dreyfus, repatriated from his imprisonment on the Devil s Island, was tried again only to be re-condemned despite clear evidence in favour of his innocence. The anger and disappointment of Zola, who had spent almost a year in exile in London in the aftermath of his 1898 open letter J Accuse.! is quite palpable in the text. The Rennes trial was, says Zola, supposed to be the fifth act of the play that was the Dreyfus affair -- a happy ending where the wronged party is redeemed -- but it turned out to be only the fourth act : When, Oh dear God, will there be the Fifth? Zola did not have to wait for very long for the fifth act , as Dreyfus was pardoned later that same year on the grounds of feeble health. The finale of the affair was however not enacted until 1906, when Dreyfus was formally acquitted and his honour restored, something Zola himself sadly never lived to see.

        The River War, An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1899. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Very good plus. This is a finely bound first edition, first printing of Churchill's second book. This first edition is notable for a number of reasons. Aesthetically it is lavish, each of the two large volumes printed on heavy paper with a profusion of illustrations, maps, and plans. From a collector's standpoint it is scarce; the publisher issued just 2,000 copies of this first printing. Bibliographically it is notable that this first edition is the *only* unabridged edition printed to this day. In 1902 Churchill (now a new member of Parliament) revised and abridged his text, excising much of the criticism of Kitchener for political reasons. All of the many subsequent editions of The River War are based on the 1902 abridged and revised text. Last but not least, the text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. In 1883, Mahdist forces of messianic leader Mohammed Ahmed overwhelmed the Egyptian army of British commander William Hicks and Britain ordered withdrawal from the Sudan. In 1885, General Gordon famously lost his life in a doomed defense of Khartoum, where he had been sent to lead evacuation of Egyptian forces. General Kitchener reoccupied the Sudan in 1898. With him was a very young Winston Churchill, who would participate in the battle of Omdurman in September 1898, where the Mahdist forces were decisively defeated. Writing about the British campaign in the Sudan, Churchill - a young officer in a colonial British army - is unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of Imperial cynicism and cruelty. This work offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. Here is a chief architect of the Second World War involved in what has been called the last "genuine" cavalry charge of the British army. This first printing set features very good first edition contents finely bound in quarter red pebble grain morocco over heavy blue pebble grain buckram boards, with marbled endpapers, gilt top edge, head and foot bands, gilt spine title print and rules, and gilt rule transitions. The binding is in very good plus condition. The leather remains supple with no splits or cracking. The bindings are tight with only minor wear to extremities and modest cosmetic flaws, primarily some staining to the spines. The contents are very good for the edition. All of the profuse maps and plans are present and in excellent condition, including the photo plates and attendant tissue guards. Volume I is of course rebound without the publisher's rear catalogue. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is modest for the edition, mostly found on the fore and bottom edges and first few leaves, only intermittent and relatively light otherwise throughout.

Churchill's second book, written while an officer in the British army, and definitely the scarcest of his works. This edition to this day is the only unexpurgated version of the work -- later editions were abridged to one volume, and removed several passages that were deemed too critical of Lord Kitchener. The book tells of the conflict between Kitchener and the Dervish forces of Khalifa Abdallahi ibn Muhammad. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        American Anthropologist

      Varous places: American Anthropologist, 1899-2009 120 volumes plus all indexes and supplements. Royal Octavo (9 1/4" x 6 1/4") and Quarto (11" x 8 1/2") issued in wrappers. Early volumes from the library of George M Foster and bound in green cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Other volumes from the library of Robert V Kemper. First editions.American Anthropologist is the flagship journal of the American Anthropological Association (AAA). It is known for publishing a wide range of work in anthropology, including articles on cultural, biological and linguistic anthropology and archeology. Its first incarnation (known as the "Old Series") started in 1888 and was published by the Anthropological Society of Washington, the first anthropology association in the United States. The "New Series" began in 1899 under an editorial board that included Franz Boas, Daniel G. Brinton, and John Wesley Powell and continues to this day. The four fields of Anthropology include cultural, linguistic, archeology and biological/physical. Sometimes applied anthropology is added as a fifth division. Among the journals published by the AAA, The American Anthropologist is the only one that follows the "four field" approach, publishing articles from all the subdisciplines of anthropology. Proponents of four-field anthropology see American Anthropologist's broad scope as important to maintaining disciplinary unity, while critics have expressed serious reservations about this aim, and criticize pressures since the 1970s against editors and works that do not subscribe to four field holism as an ideal for anthropological scholarship.Condition:Because of the quantity of this item shipping will be $500.00 domestic and will require 30 boxes to be shipped.

        Electric Movement in Air and Water with Theoretical Inferences, 2 vols. (including supplement by Henry Stroud).

      London : Smith, Elder, & Co., 1899. 2 volumes bound in together in original full decorated cloth, richly gilt, with gilt title and decorations. Complete copy with 1 diagram (loose), and 55 (41 + 14) photographic / lithographed plates, many full page, some large folding. The 14 plates included in the supplement are in color. Most plates loose but all are well preserved, clean and intact. Clean copy inside, and overall quite well preserved.. First printing of the spectacular second edition from 1899 which includes the supplement by Stroud with full page colored lithographed plates. William George Armstrong, Baron Armstrong of Cragside, CB, FRS was an engineer, a scientist, inventor and philanthropist. In collaboration with the architect Richard Norman Shaw, he built Cragside in Northumberland, the first house in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity. He invented high-pressure hydraulic machinery and is regarded as the inventor of modern artillery. His electric experiments in this volume (s) were reproduced directly onto photographic plates, fx. some are made on plates with a very thin layer of wax and dust. What he captures this way is describes like this: "I have already spoken of electricity as organised motion, and we have here an example of it carried apparently to the verge of life. (No. 38) [...] in the succeeding figure (No. 40) we see arborescent forms, showing trees and undergrowth, in which stems, branches, and leaves find their approximate representatives. Lastly, in the one remaining figure to be shown (No. 41), even the root is indicated lying at the foot of the stem." And later on he concludes [p. 52]: "Examples have been presented of the remarkable correspondence between some electric figures and living organised forms." This copy stems from the collection of Danish physic P. O. Pedersen with his name, neatly, in ink to bottom of titlepage. P. O. Pedersen (Peder Oluf Pedersen, 1874 -1941) was a Danish engineer and physicist. He is notable for his work on electrotechnology and his cooperation with Valdemar Poulsen on the developmental work on Wire recorders, which he called a telegraphone , and the arc converter known as the Poulsen Arc Transmitter. Pedersen became a professor of telegraphy, telephony and radio in 1912. He became principal of the College of Advanced Technology (Den Polytekniske Læreanstalt) in 1922, a title he held until his death. He was a Fellow of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and was a member of the British Institution of Electrical Engineers. In 1915 he became a Fellow of the Institute of Radio Engineers. Pedersen includes Armstrong in his publication 'On the Lichtenberg Curves', 1919

      London: C. Arthur Pearson Limited, 1899. xxiv, 241 pages, including a frontispiece and 42 plates that are duotone stereoviews to be viewed with the wooden "book stereoscope" that, with a sheet of instructions, is in a pocket on the inside of the rear cover. A limited edition: #118 of 150 copies SIGNED by Porter. The photographs were taken by Porter during his tour of the United States: there are several stereoviews of Niagara Falls, but most are Yellowstone and Yosemite views. This book is an interesting piece of western Americana and a must for the collector of stereoscopic view books. Appropriately bound by Dow and Lester to allow open hinges held together with 3 sturdy cloth bands. The binding has some staining and bumped corners and is missing the ribbon ties, but is not unattractive (a scan of the front cover is available). The endpapers have the usual tanning with an impression from the stereoscope, but the interior pages are clean and white. The plates still have their tissue guards, and the pages on both sides of the plates are lightly toned. Certainly a better than acceptable copy for the collector.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hardcover. Collectible-Good/No Dust Jacket. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
