        Little Folk of '76

      Frederick A. Stokes, New York 1900 - Folio. 6 full page color plates (including the title page) by Maud Humphrey, plus in-text illustrations and text by Mabel Humphrey, all printed on one side only on heavy paper. The binding is a red cloth spine, printed paper boards both upper and lower showing "Paul Revere" on his hobby horse. This is a fine, bright copy with only traces of wear and soil, still protected in its rare dustwrapper. The dustwrapper has had extensive old repairs from within over time, including some tape repairs, and it lacks bits along the edges and folds, but it is still presentable. A surprisingly rare book, the more so in this condition, by the iconic Maud Humphrey, who trained, inter alia, under James McNeil Whistler. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Exceptional gunmetal cigarette case with impressive gold monogram on the front (Rama V, 1853-1910, King of Thailand from 1868)]

      1900 - with a blue jewel in the gold mounted clasp on the front, 3½ inches wide by 2½ inches deep and half inch high, no place, c. The King of Siam was strongly attracted to all things Western and was an enthusiastic customer of Faberge and other leading European Jewellers. In autumn 2003, Dr. Henry D. Ginsburg, Siamese expert at the British Library, examined this cigarette case and confirmed that the monogram under the Siamese crown was that of Chulalongkorn. He also said that Chulalongkorn presented some cigarette boxes on his European trip in 1897, which took him as far as North Cape in Norway though it is not possible to be sure if this is one of them.

        The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine - Vol LX : New Series Vol XXXVIII, May-Oct 1900 (Increasing Human Energy by Nikola Tesla)

      New York / London: The Century Co. / Macmillan & Co., Ltd, 1900. Hardcover. Good. The first publication of Nikola Tesla's photographically illustrated work "The Problem of Increasing Human Energy, with Special Reference to the Harnessing of the Sun's Energy" and, with "Illustrated by the Writer's Electrical Experiments, Now First Published" stated both immediately under his name and in the table of contents. Three-quarter leather with brown cloth over boards, large 8vo (9-5/16 inches tall), pp. viii (index to Vol. VI), 960, 86 (ads), illustrated throughout. Six consecutive issues, all bound with front covers - but lacking back covers and terminal ads from all except the final issue. Volume covers worn, joints completely cracked, both hinges stregthened with an archival linen repair, a library rubber stamp to foot of text block edge, front pastedown and "withdrawal" stamp to ffep, text block slightly toned, marginally trimmed with an occasional soil spot or repaired tear noted. Both the Tesla article and it's front cover (Vol. XL No. 2) are clean and unmarked. An important and long essay by Tesla, who presents here (pp. 175-211) the first practical telautomation, many new energy-related experiments and muses "The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter - for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes with the poet..." - most certainly an uncommon genius, within an uncommon man.

        The Will of an Eccentric.

      London, Sampson, Low and Co. 1900. First English deluxe edition. Profusely illustrated, and with one fold out chart/gameboard for tracking one's progress across the United States. Publisher's green cloth boards decorated and titled in gilt, black, orange and white with a suitably Verneian (a word that in this context means "Utterly Bizarre") scene of three men on a tandem (tridem?) cycling energetically across a desolate mountainous landscape whilst discharging revolvers at a pursuing pack of wolves. As you do. Minor scuffing and edgewear otherwise exceptionally clean and sharp. This de luxe edition was publshed similtaneously with floral endpapers and all edges gilt. Internally clean and bright, ink ownership to front flyleaf, the plate facing page 152 has at some stage come loose and develop a crease along the top edge prior to being reattached. A nice example of a madcap bit of scarce late Verne involving a lunatic race across America for enough cash to build your own nuclear submarine and fly it to the moon. Wacky Races goes steampunk, endearingly frenetic and madder than an eel flavoured hat. BBA sale 634 [Literature].

        Fitzebutze. Allerhand Schnickschnack für Kinder.

      Neue verbesserte Auflage. Fünfzehntes Tausend. Ca. 30 x 23,5 cm (2) S., 40 S., (2) Seiten. Mit farbigen Bildern von Ernst Kreidolf. Mit farbig illustrierten Vorsätzen. Farbig illustr. Orig.-Halbleinenband. Die erste Ausgabe (1900 im Insel-Verlag bei Schuster & Loeffler erschienen) "erregte eine kontroverse Diskussion auf breiter Ebene. Die Reformpädagogen begrüßten die Veröffentlichung nahezug enthusiastisch, die progressive Intelligenz stimmte für das Buch, die konservativen Kreise lehnten es rundweg ab. Der kommerzielle Erfolg ... blieb jedoch aus." ( R. Stark: Der Schaffstein-Verlag, S. 32). "Nachdem ich den Verlag der "Blumenmärchen" übernommen hatte, bot mir Dehmel seinen "Fitzebutze" an, der in dem von Heymel gegründeten Inselverlag erschienen war. Obwohl ich wegen des Rahmengedichtes Bedenken hatte, griff ich zu." (R. Stark: Fitzebutze, S. 124, Brief von H. Schaffstein, 75 Jahre Schaffstein Verlag). Richard Dehmel antwortete Schaffstein wegen der von ihm gewünschten zweiten Auflage: "Der Struwwelpeter" ist ein Volksbuch, der "Fitzebutze" steht literarisch für eine große Menge zu hoch, er ist nur ein Buch für solche Familien, in welchen sich die gebildeten Eltern geistig mit den Kindern beschäftigen." (Bilderwelt 511). "Die neue Ausgabe war in mehreren Punkten vom Änderungswillen Dehmels und Kreidolfs geprägt: Abgesehen von der anderen Papierqualität war die Reihenfolge der Gedichte verändert worden. Das Gedicht "Zum Geburtstag" wurde zusätzlich eingefügt, die umstrittenen Verse vom "Staatsereignis" herausgenommen, die Illustrationen erfuhren Änderungen in Farbigkeit und Darstellung, ein neues Bild kam hinzu." (Stark: Fitzebutze, S. 125 ff). Einband leicht berieben und leicht fleckig. Seitenränder minimal fingerfleckig, Seiten zum Falz hin leicht berieben. Eine Lage leicht gelockert.

        Delightful Imperial cabinet photo by Downey, signed and inscribed on a card which she has attached to the photo and dated on the photo, (of Denmark, 1844-1925, Queen of Edward VII)

      1900 - the inscription is "For dear Milly from Alexandra" and the image shows the Queen with her grandchildren – the daughters of the Duchess of Fife, Alexandra and Maud, she is seated on a sofa and the girls are wearing white frilly dresses and draped around her lap, 12½" x 7½", no place, Xmas the mount has been trimmed on the bottom edge obscuring the photographer's name but enough remains to identify it It is possible that the 'Milly' is Millicent Sutherland-Leveson-Gower, Duchess of Sutherland,1867-1955 who was a society hostess and social reformer.

        Original Drawing. Babylolia.

      [c.1900?] Ink, pencil & watercolour on thin paper, with Crane's illustrated signature at lower left corner. Mounted on cream card. 22 x 28.5cm.A baby boy holding a rattle sits on a cushion alongside two dogs and a host of toys. He is in front of a globe with imaginary locations including the Bay of Milkolia and Lollipopolis. Mother (to the left) and father (to the right) overlook the globe and child from above. The title, Babylolia, illustrated with playing children runs across the centre of the image. An unrecorded illustration by the influential and prolific children's book illustrator Walter Crane, 1845-1915. Neither the BL or Copac record this title. In addition, the Ashmolean and the Whitworth Art Gallery, both of which hold significant Crane collections, can find no reference to a publication or drawing by Crane under this title. It is likely therefore that this was a personal drawing given as a gift to celebrate the birth or birthday of a friend or relative's baby.
