        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.

        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.

        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".

A taxonomic endeavor, the botanical name and genus of each specimen is identified by hand, in black ink, in (again!) blue-bordered label, and sometimes accompanied by pencil notations and/or printed text from an unknown source.

        The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. [Sixth Edition, Popular Impression, Second Impression]. BRIGHT, CLEAN COPY IN ORIGINAL CLOTH

      John Murray,, 1900. 8vo., Sixth Edition, Popular Impression, Second Impression, with portrait frontispiece (original tissue guard present) and folding diagram, endpapers very lightly browned, neat contemporary signature (1901) on front free endpaper; original decorative arches-style green cloth, upper board blocked and lettered in blind, gilt back, upper hinge starting at advertisement (but binding entirely sound), joints mildly rubbed, a little chafing at headband else a very good, clean copy. With the advertisement leaf preceding half-title. Most issues after 1872 are based on the sixth edition, containing as it does Darwin's final major corrections and revisions. 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. VERY SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION. Freeman (Darwin), 147.

        The Effects of Cross and Self Fertilisation in the Vegetable Kingdom [Uncut]

      London: John Murray, 1900. Second Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine. 8vo: viii,487,[1]pp, with one diagram, 109 tables. 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." The text of this edition remains unaltered up to p. 370, where the addition of a large footnote necessitated resetting of the remaining pages. 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. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Ubu enchaîné précédé de Ubu roi

      1900. Editions de la Revue Blanche, Paris 1900, 12x18,5cm, relié. - Editions de la Revue Blanche, Paris 1900, 12x18,5cm, relié. - Parzialmente edizione originale, una copia del servizio stampa. 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.
