        THREE-PART GOLD RUSH ERA PANORAMA OF DAWSON CITY, YUKON TERRITORY].

      [Dawson City, Yukon. ca. 1900]. - Three silver gelatin photographs, each approximately 6 x 8 inches, forming a 6 x 24 1/4 inch panorama. Images joined by cloth tape on versos. Light crease near joint of left and central photos. Images clear and sharp. Very good. A fine panorama of Dawson City in the Yukon Territory, the center of the Klondike Gold Rush at the end of the 19th century. This image dates to approximately 1900, when the gold rush was dying down, but the town had been fully developed. The principal photographers in Dawson at this time were Edward Larss and Joseph Duclos, who had succeeded a Swedish photographer named Eric Hegg in 1899, and these images were likely taken by their firm. The panorama shows the sweep of Dawson City from across the Yukon River. In the foreground are the shipping buildings along the riverfront and the town's building rising up the hillside. To the left is the Midnight Dome and at the far right the mouth of the Klondike River at its junction with the Yukon is visible. An excellent view of Dawson, just past its prime as a mining boomtown.

Some scattered minor soiling or age-darkening to some album pages, photographs overall in very good condition, a few with minor fading, some of the photochromes with wear or loss. Most photographs 5" x 7". Oblong 4to. 3/4 leather album, professionally repaired. N.p. (various cities in Mexico) circa 1900. Homer Scott, born in 1880, was a founding member of the American Society of Cinematographers in 1919, but in his early years he made several trips from El Paso, Texas into Mexico to photograph both sides of the Mexican Revolution. During one trip he was arrested and nearly executed as a spy before being released. He took photographs for several publications including the New York Herald, founded the Scott Photo Company, and worked with the Mexican War Photo Postcard Company. Charles Burlingame Waite was originally from California, and worked briefly in El Paso before moving to Mexico in 1896. He opened a photography studio in Mexico City that remained in operation until Waite left Mexico in 1913. During those years Waite photographed archaeological and scientific expeditions, contributed to periodicals and tourist guides, and worked on commission for a number of business. He became best known for his photographs of landscapes and daily life, which were widely distributed as postcards.

        MARCUS AURELIUS ANTONINUS, THE ROMAN EMPEROUR, HIS MEDITATIONS CONCERNING HIMSELFE

      London: J. M. Dent & Co, 1900. This is a very appealing example of the innovative bindings produced by the Guild of Women Binders, a group established by Frank Karslake in 1898 to give an organizational identity to a group of women already at work binding books in various parts of Britain, often in their own homes. Karslake first became interested in women binders when he visited the Victorian Era Exhibition at Earl's Court in 1897, held to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. He was impressed with a number of bookbindings at the Jubilee exhibit, prominent among them being those of Mrs. Annie MacDonald of Edinburgh, and he invited the women to exhibit their work in his shop at 61 Charing Cross Road. The Guild was formed soon thereafter, when some of the women named Karslake as their agent. The Guild was closely associated with the Hampstead Bindery, the two groups exhibiting bindings together at the Paris Exhibition in 1900 and elsewhere. As Tidcombe notes, "because the women were generally unaware of the long history of traditional bookbinding design, they produced designs that were freer and less stereotyped than those of men in the trade." A pencilled note on the front flyleaf tells us that the present binding was "forwarded by . . . Florence Catherine Moore," who is listed by Tidcombe as a forwarder for the Guild in 1901. Additional pencilled notes on the recto of the rear endpaper contain the initials "CK" as well as a reference to "Mrs. Knight," possibly referring to Guild binders Constance Karslake (daughter of Frank) and Mrs. Frances Knight. We have been unable to trace the monogram on the rear board; no one with the initials "K B" or "B K" appears on Tidcombe's list of Guild associates. The text here is 17th century scholar Meric Casaubon's enduring translation of the Stoic philosopher-emperor Marcus Aurelius, which remained popular for more than two centuries.. 210 x 140 mm. (8 3/8 x 5 1/2"). xxv, [i], 217, [1] pp.Translated out of the original Greek, with notes, by Meric Casaubon, and edited, with an Introduction, Appendix, and Glossary, by W. H. Rouse. VERY PRETTY HUNTER-GREEN MOROCCO, GILT, BY THE GUILD OF WOMEN BINDERS (stamp-signed "BK" [or "KB"] on rear turn-in) covers with wide gilt-tooled frame of interlocking strapwork heart shapes on a stippled background, flat spine with similar tooling and with gilt titling in an elongated panel, very wide inner dentelles framed in gilt and with heart-shaped cornerpieces, vellum doublures and rear endleaf (lacking front endleaf), top edge gilt. In a (very worn) felt-lined clamshell box. With six plates depicting Roman scupltures of Marcus Aurelius, all but the first with tissue guard. Except for the missing vellum flyleaf and the inclination of the vellum doublures to lift slightly, A VERY FINE COPY--clean and smooth internally, and in an unworn, lustrous binding. This is a very appealing example of the innovative bindings produced by the Guild of Women Binders, a group established by Frank Karslake in 1898 to give an organizational identity to a group of women already at work binding books in various parts of Britain, often in their own homes. Karslake first became interested in women binders when he visited the Victorian Era Exhibition at Earl's Court in 1897, held to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

        PRINCE CHARLES EDWARD

      London: Goupil & Co, 1900. No. 19 OF 350 COPIES. This volume makes an immediate strong impression for two obvious reasons. First, like other examples of the work from the Guild of Women Binders, it is decorated without much concern for traditional patterns of design, featuring floating dentelles that resemble dancing clover leaves enclosing the royal arms in the middle of each board. Second, compared to the typical Guild binding, it is immense! We do not know of another Guild of Women Binders bindings approaching the physical size of this volume. The interior of the book tells the story of Charles Edward Louis John Casimir Sylvester Severino Maria Stuart (1720-88), commonly called by the (happily shorter) appellation The Young Pretender (and after his death as Bonnie Prince Charlie). As the grandson of the deposed James II, he claimed the English throne (as Charles III) upon the death of his father James Francis Edward Suart; he attempted to raise a rebellion in Scotland in 1745-56 to overthrow the reigning English monarch George II, but it failed at the Battle of Culloden. Our account is written by Andrew Lang (1844-1912), the well-known classicist, literary critic, poet, folklorist, and writer of fantasy novels. The condition here is worth re-emphasizing: with a book this large (and containing attractive pictures to peruse), it is remarkable to find it so well preserved.. 325 x 250 mm. (12 3/4 x 9 3/4"). 1 p.l., vii, 300 pp., [1] leaf. No. 19 OF 350 COPIES. IMPRESSIVE OLIVE-BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, BY THE GUILD OF WOMEN BINDERS (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with a wide frame of elaborately tooled thistles enclosing the badge of Prince Charles Edward at center, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with tooled thistle frame, one compartment with small heraldic crest at center, three others with gilt titling, very wide turn-ins with sprays of thistles at the corner, vellum(?) pastedowns, top edge gilt. With three engraved facsimile letters (one of these two-sided), engraved head- and tailpieces, seven of these with an extra state in bistre, and 33 engraved plates, all with a second state in bistre, one in color, all with lettered tissue guards. Spine evenly sunned to a slightly lighter brown, a hint of rubbing to extremities, but A VERY FINE COPY, the text with few signs of use, and THE GRAND BINDING LUSTROUS AND SCARCELY WORN. This volume makes an immediate strong impression for two obvious reasons. First, like other examples of the work from the Guild of Women Binders, it is decorated without much concern for traditional patterns of design, featuring floating dentelles that resemble dancing clover leaves enclosing the royal arms in the middle of each board. Second, compared to the typical Guild binding, it is immense! We do not know of another Guild of Women Binders bindings approaching the physical size of this volume.

        Typed Letter Signed ("Louis Mountbatten") to William N. Campion, from on board H.M.S. Kelly, 30 Dec. 1940

      1900. 1 vols. 8-3/4 x 7 inches. original folds, slight split without loss at one fold, 1/2-inch tear without loss at lower edge, else fine and attractive. 1 vols. 8-3/4 x 7 inches. As Captain of H.M.S. Kelly, Mountbatten writes to Mr. Campion, of Round Hill Road, Greenwich, CT: "I have received from the Ardath Tobacco Company Ltd., 3,000 cigarettes for distribution to my ship's company. I am sure that you will be glad to know how very much this handsome present has been appreciated by my officers and men. In point of fact, the parcel arrived on Christmas Eve, just as we were off to sea again. Its timely arrival as an unexpected present, distributed at sea on Christmas Day, made the whole difference to my ship's company, and I need hardly assure you that they are all very grateful to you." 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma (1900-1979) served as Supreme Allied Commander of S.E. Asia, British Viceroy of India, First Sea Lord, and Chief of the U.K. Combined Defense Staffs. His biographer, Alden Hatch, states, "THE THING LORD LOUIS MOUNTBATTEN LOVED BEST IN ALL THE WORLD WAS A SHIP-H.M.S. KELLY. WELL DID SHE DESERVE HIS DEVOTION, FOR IN HER HE ATTAINED HIS FINEST MOMENTS AND THE EMOTIONAL CLIMAX OF HIS LIFE." The Kelly, a K-Class destroyer of 1,695 tons with a crew of 240 officers and men, was Mountbatten's flagship during his command of the Fifth Destroyer Flotilla. She saw heavy action in the North Sea, and though torpedoed and bombed, proved indomitable in the naval engagements which made Mountbatten's name. Ordered to the Mediterranean, the ship was attacked near Crete on May 23, 1941 by 24 Luftwaffe dive bombers and sunk with a loss of 130 lives. All officers and men stayed at their posts, and the ship went down with all guns firing. The saga of the Kelly was fictionalized in Noel Coward's 1942 film, "In Which We Serve".

The sixth is the first edition with the title The Origin of Species, and includes among many other revisions a new chapter inserted to confute the views of the Catholic biologist St. George Mivart. There is a glossary, and the word 'evolution' is used in the text for the first time. The present copy is the Second Impression (November 1900) of the Popular Impression published two months earlier.

Original publisher's standard green pebbled cloth, covers paneled in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, black end papers, book plate on front paste down. As with first edition, spine title spells "fertilisation" with a "z," while title page uses an "s."

A truly superlative example, completely uncut (unopened) and virtually pristine. Freeman 1260. Second Edition, fifth impression. Meant as a complement to "Fertlisation of Orchids," but "too technical and too detailed to command a wide sale." (Freeman) N.B.

        Ubu enchaîné précédé de Ubu roi

Binding ... autografo firmato Alfred Jarry Leo Marche che ha scritto molte monete per il teatro Grand Guignol e particolarmente adatto alla fase "L'08:47 treno Courteline o" Tartarin delle Alpi "di Alphonse Daudet. Dos restaurato, una macchia gialla in piedi piatti. [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition en partie originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Reliure en demi maroquin bleu marine, dos lisse, plats de papier à motifs géométrique, reliure signée Devauchelle. Envoi autographe signé d'Alfred Jarry à Léo Marchès, auteur de nombreuses saynètes pour le théâtre du Grand-Guignol - que Jarry fréquentait. Ainsi, les deux hommes ont en commun l'amour du guignol et il n'est pas inutile à cet égard de rappeler que la première version d'Ubu Roi en 1888 au Théâtre des Phynances était un spectacle de marionnettes. En offrant ce texte à Marchès, Jarry sait qu'il appréciera à sa juste mesure ce personnage « né d'un modèle vivant, symbolisé par des caricatures de potaches, animé par les marionnettes du Théâtre des Phynances, [...] avant de terminer sa carrière véritablement ''personnifié'' par Jarry, sans perdre pour autant son côté guignolesque » (Michel Vaïs, L'écrivain scénique, p. 57). Rare témoignage des échanges entre ces deux agitateurs de marionnettes.

        Autographe original, L' acteur français Coquelin

      1900 - Photographie,Planche originale ayant servie de maquette au livre de Lu (Lefevre Utile) sur les contemporains célébres, provenance directe de l'éditeur, autographe manuscrit et photographie originale. Coquelin was born in Boulogne-sur-Mer, Pas-de-Calais. He was originally intended to follow his father's trade of baker (he was once called "un boulanger manqué" by a hostile critic), but his love of acting led him to the Conservatoire, where he entered Régnier's class in 1859. He won the first prize for comedy within a year, and made his début on 7 December 1860 at the Comédie-Française as the comic valet, Gros-René, in Molière's Le Dépit amoureux, but his first great success was as Figaro in The Barber of Seville, in the following year. It was an honor for Coquelin to be a part of the Comédie-Française at such a young age. This company had already been in existence for around 150 years. He was made sociétaire in 1864. There were 21 3?4 shares and they were divided among the lead actors, known as societaires. The societaires co-manage, choose plays, and share profits. When there was an opening caused by retirement, resignation, or death, it was filled by a member of the pensionnaires. And just four years after joining the Comédie-Française, Coquelin became one of the elite societaires. During the next twenty-two years he created at the Comédie Française the leading parts in forty-four new plays, including Théodore de Banville's Gringoire (1867), Paul Ferrier's Tabarin (1871), Émile Augier's Paul Forestier (1871), L'Étrangère (1876) by the younger Dumas, Charles Lomon's Jean Dacier (1877), Édouard Pailleron's Le Monde où l'on s'ennuie (1881), Erckmann and Chatrian's Les Rantzau (1884). In consequence of a dispute with the authorities over the question of his right to make provincial tours in France he resigned in 1886. Three years later, however, the breach was healed; and after a successful series of tours in Europe and the United States he rejoined the Comédie-Française as pensionnaire in 1890.[2] During his time away from the Comédie he wrote his book Art and the Actor. It was during this period that he took the part of Labussière, in the production of Victorien Sardou's Thermidor, which was interdicted by the government after three performances. In 1892 he broke definitely with the Comédie-Française, and toured for some time through the capitals of Europe with a company of his own; in New York, for instance, he performed at Abbey's Theatre in 1894, playing the lead in Tartuffe (his son Jean played Orgon) and Mascarille in Les Précieuses ridicules.[3] In 1895 he joined the Renaissance theatre in Paris, and played there until he became director of the Théâtre de la Porte Saint-Martin in 1897. Here he won successes in Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac (1897), which he repeated in the summer of 1898 at the Lyceum Theatre, London, Émile Bergerat's Plus que reine (1899), Catulle Mendès's Scarron (1905), and Alfred Capus and Lucien Descaves' L'Attentat (1906). In 1900 Coquelin toured in America with Sarah Bernhardt, appeared on Broadway's Garden Theatre in a production of Cyrano de Bergerac (Bernhardt played Roxane).[4] He made his only film, the duel scene from Cyrano de Bergerac with sound recording on phonograph cylinder (see also Sound film/Early steps). The film is thought to be the first ever made with both color and sound. On their return to France he continued with his old colleague to appear in L'Aiglon, at the Théâtre Sarah Bernhardt. He was rehearsing for the creation of the leading part in Rostand's Chantecler, which he was to produce, when he died suddenly in Paris in 1909.[2] The New York Times printed an obituary, in which it described many tributes to the dead actor, including a visit by the personal secretary of the President of the Republic, Armand Fallières. // Circa 1900 // Tirage albuminé // Format (cm): 22x31cm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [RUSSIA - NORTH CAUCASUS] [Collection of Eighteen Original Albumen Photographs of Kislovodsk, Pyatigorsk, Zheleznovodsk, and the Georgian Military Road from the Series "Views of the Caucasus"]

      Ca. 1900. Eighteen albumen prints mounted on the official photographer's card leaves with printed name and credentials on the lower margins, images ca. 12,5x17,5 cm (5 x 6 ¾ in), mounts ca. 21x27 cm (8 ¼ x 10 ½ in). All but two images captioned and numbered in negative. Several photos with period pencil numbers on the mounts (made by an owner), one - with a period manuscript ink title on verso ("Narzan Gallery, Kislovodsk").

Attractive collection of eighteen original photographs of the Georgian Military Road, and mountains, streams, mineral sources, baths and resort establishments of Kislovodsk, Pyatigorsk, and Zheleznovodsk in the North Caucasus. Grigory Rayev was a famous Russian photographer from the Caucasus. A native of Pyatigorsk, he worked as a photographer since the age of fifteen, and in 1889 purchased the studio of his teacher A.K. Engel; all images in his studio were taken personally by him. Rayev was awarded with over twenty gold and silver medals of Russian and foreign photographic exhibitions, including those in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Tiflis, Paris, Brussels, Cairo, and others; in 1896 he was awarded with the Legion of Honour in Louvre. Rayev was a member of the Russian Photographic and Russian Geographical Societies, and became the first photographer to document the establishment of railways in the Caucasus. Among his works are series of photos "Views of the Caucasus", "90 views of Caucasian Mineral Waters, Georgian Military and Sukhumi Military Roads", "50 views of the Osetian Military Road", "25 views of Kislovodsk", "Panoramas of the Caucasian Range", over two hundred postcards with the views of the Caucasus based on his negatives, and others.

      - Paris, L. Larose, 1900. In-8, broché, couverture imprimée, 189, (1) p., nombreuses statistiques. Edition originale et unique. L'auteur était commissaire-adjoint du Japon à l'Exposition universelle de 1900 et chargé du service industriel du Ministère de l'Agriculture et du commerce. "L’auteur peut se prévaloir d’une double expérience. Il a été chargé du service industriel au sein du ministère de l’Agriculture et du Commerce. A ce titre, il a participé à la rédaction d’un projet de loi ouvrière dont il analyse le contenu. Il a en outre été nommé commissaire adjoint du Japon pour l’exposition universelle de 1900 qui se tient à Paris dont il escompte qu’elle ‘permettra au Japon de se montrer sous son vrai jour’ (.). Dans cet ouvrage, Kashiro Saïto dresse un tableau de la situation économique et sociale de son pays et expose des vues plus personnelles. Il relève notamment: ‘Une législation ouvrière s’impose, au Japon, soit au point de vue de l’intérêt public, soit au point de vue de l’intérêt privé ( )’. La première publication en langue française spécifiquement consacrée à la question de la législation ouvrière au Japon" (cf. F. Lekéal, ‘Regards croisés sur la législation ouvrière au Japon’, colloque franco-japonais organisé par le Centre d’Histoire Judiciaire (Lille 2) et la division du Chubu de l’Association japonaise d’histoire du droit, janvier 2014, Université de Nagoya). Quelques petits accrocs à la couverture. Bon exemplaire. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition]
