        A Diplomatic Woman

      Sands and Co, London 1900 - 8vo. 181pp. + 2pp ads.Publisher's pictorial green cloth titled and decorated in black, white and pink to spine and front board. Minor bumping and edgewear, a trifle discoloured to the spine, a very good copy indeed. Plain endpapers, internally clean and bright. One of those forgotten gems which was actually pretty groundbreaking. A tumultuously gothic and purple roller coaster ride of espionage and intrigue, featuring the redoubtrable and skillful Madamoiselle Lerestelle; the "cleverest woman in Paris" it's a fair stab at creating an early female spy and furthermore producing a female protagonist who is smarter than most of the surrounding men, immune to romantic blandishments ("Not so much sugar if you please, monsieur."), is perceived primarily as intelligent with her manifest beauty being a pleasant afterthought, is independent both financially and by inclination and is tenacious enough to meet any challenge. It's all secret cyphers and evil Russian chaps, princes committing indiscretions with showgirls, stolen documents that leave France on the brink of war, and a rather complex conundrum involving a treaty between France and China. It's all world changing stuff and rather a far cry from missing jewellery. Like George R. Sims' Dorcas Dene, Madamoiselle Lerestelle is a force to be reckoned with and represents a growing awareness of the change in women's attitudes and roles. Scarce and quite important. nov [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      - Berlin, Bruno Hessling, 1900. Folio (48.0 x 33.9 cm).

The rear board contains a list of publications of "Bruno Hessling Buchhandlung für Architektur und Kunstgewerbe". The firm had two addresses, one in Berlin, and one on East 12th St., Manhattan, and must have been a bridgehead in America for influential European art movements. For instance, the influence on the design of Tiffany lamps seems evident. Lyongrün's designs seems to be derived, in part, from the works of the influential Jugendstil artist Anton Seder. Some very light soiling and discolouring to the plate edges, otherwise a fine, brightly coloured set. Rare. Schneider-Henn, 206. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Two Large Native American Photographic Portraits

      1900 - (RINEHART, Frank A.). Two Large Native American Photographic Portraits. [Omaha: F.A. Rinehart, 1896]. One image measures 12-1/2 by 15-1/2 inches, the other 13 by 16 inches; both mounted on glass and framed together in old wooden frame; entire piece measures 33 by 20-1/2 inches. $15,000.Two splendid large photographic portraits of Native American (Sioux) chiefs""Chief Hollow Horn Bear of the Lakota Sioux, on the left, and Chief Afraid of Eagle, of the Oglala Sioux, who participated in the Battle of Little Bighorn, on the right""by renowned photographer Frank A. Rinehart. Both images are vintage enlarged negatives (internegatives) that would have been used by Rinehart or his studio for producing large prints, and show remarkable detail, clarity, and fine tonal gradation.In 1898 Smithsonian ethnographer James Mooney arranged for the Indian Congress to coincide with the Trans-Mississippi Exposition in Omaha so that the delegates could serve as a living ethnographic museum for the Exposition. Photographer Frank A. Rinehart, the Exposition's official photographer, was commissioned to do portraits of some of the 500 Indian delegates, "many of the most famous Indians of the day. Rinehart and his assistant and successor, George Marsden, made exquisite prints from the negatives of the Indians" (Mautz, 179). Rinehart's series of stunning photographs constitutes one of the most impressive visual records of Native Americans at the turn of the century."Hollow Horn Bear (1851-1913), Lakota chief and diplomat". was born in the year the Lakota people signed a treaty of peace with the United States at Fort Laramie". In 1868 another treaty was signed with the United States, which, from the government's point of view, ended hostilities and concentrated the Lakota on a large reservation in present-day South Dakota, with additional hunting territory beyond. From the Lakota standpoint, the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 was a peace treaty that recognized the Lakota as a sovereign nation and guaranteed a perpetual land base that could not be reduced except by cession approved by three-fourths of the adult males of the Lakota nation". Although Hollow Horn Bear recognized the necessity of adapting to the new way of life on the reservations and of living in peace with the U.S. government, he was a strong advocate of Lakota interests. At negotiations regarding remaining tribal lands in the 1890s and the early 1900s, for example, Hollow Horn Bear was repeatedly delegated to speak for his tiospaye and others, to insist that the government could not force land cessions upon the Lakota but must obtain the consent of three-fourths of the men as required by the 1868 treaty. Although he was not able to prevent the government from violating the 1868 treaty because a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1904 legitimated treaty abrogation, Hollow Horn Bear's presence at the negotiations clearly pushed the agreements in the direction of Lakota interests. Without his presence, things would have been much worse for the Lakota people". Hollow Horn Bear became a fairly frequent visitor to Washington, D.C., at least by Lakota standards. He attended the inauguration of President Theodore Roosevelt and visited with Presidents William Howard Taft and Benjamin Harrison. In 1913, while ill, he attended the inauguration of President Woodrow Wilson. Hollow Horn Bear died in Washington shortly after the inauguration". He was memorialized by the U.S. Postal Service in 1922 when it issued a stamp with his image. Hollow Horn Bear was a strong and perceptive leader among the Lakota people during the most traumatic period in their history""the transition from an independent native society to an indigenous nation struggling for survival within an encompassing industrial state. Hollow Horn Bear's skill and wisdom helped the U.S. government to see the point of view of the Lakota people and the Lakota people to see that some of the new ways could help them survive as Lakota" (ANB).

        Immigrant’s Postcard Album

      St. Louis, 1890s to 1910s. Leather postcard album titled, Grüße aus der Ferne (Greetings from Afar) with 50 leaves containing a total of 200 postcards primarily from Germany and Austria-Hungary with a few from Italy, Russia, and Switzerland. The album has some wear but is in nice shape overall. Almost all of the postcards are postally used and in nice shape. The name and address of the owner are written on the front flyleaf. This is a superb collection of German and Austrian postcards celebrating holidays, events, the military, and travel. Some of its highlights include * A demonic Krampus lifting French and Russian soldiers by the scruffs of their neck; * Several pig and clover New Year’s cards; * A New Year’s card showing a man firing a pistol in the air as two women cover their ears; * Several Easter cards with anthropomorphic bunnies and chicks; * A Christmas tree being decorated by dwarfs; * Three cards from the Exposition Universelle de 1900 in Paris, one showing the Eiffel Tower; * Kaiser Wilhelm on horseback reviewing troops; * Several Emperor Franz Josef cards; * A patriotic card showing ancient Germanic warriors; * Event cards for agricultural, industrial, and craft expositions; * A card for a hunting festival showing men and women in traditional hunting clothes; * Several humorous cards including an anthropomorphic Hippo gondolier and babies sitting amongst anthropomorphic mushrooms: * A Russo-Japanese War card with illustrations of soldiers from both countries, and * An advertising card for the Nordsee-Linie-Hamburg. Other cards include dogs, horses, pretty young women, children, a fencer, the renowned opera singer Geraldine Farrar, ships, currency, the physician-poet Justinus Kerner, the famous economist Ferdinand von Steinbeis, and “Grüße aus” cards from cities and towns throughout central Europe. This album and most of the postcards were apparently brought to the United States as a reminder of family, friends, and the home he left behind by Umrath when he emigrated from Prague via Hamburg in 1908 and settled in St. Louis, Missouri where he became a sales manager for the Steiner Electric Company, which manufactured meat choppers and coffee mills. No doubt this album was a comforting piece of the old country for Otto as he made a new life in America, and, as such, I hope that it remains intact, although that is doubtful as many of these cards would sell on for $20 to $100, and some, like the Krampus card (which does not have a red background and satirically portends the coming of World War One) could easily bring several hundred. Priced to sell at $5/card.

        CLASSIFICATION MAP OF CREEK AND SEMINOLE NATIONS

      Topeka: Hall Lithographing Company, 1900. Chromolithographic map, 27 3/4 x 25 inches. Mounted on linen. Some edge wear and chipping. A couple closed tears, one a 3-inch tear in upper portion, but with no loss of image. In good condition. An attractive, separately published map showing the lands of the Creek and Seminole nations in Indian Territory, issued a few years before Oklahoma became a state. The map was drawn by Ricksecker, Hackbush, and Patton, civil engineers in Muskogee, and was prepared for the Bradley Real Estate Company, also of Muskogee. Issued to advertise available real estate, it depicts more than three million acres of Creek lands and nearly 400,000 acres of Seminole lands, indicating the great land hunger that persisted a decade after the initial Oklahoma land rush. All of these lands were about to become of great interest as oil properties, as exploration opened up major fields there during World War I. Creek lands are classified by one of four designations: agricultural (by far the majority), rocky prairie land, hilly and rocky land, and mountain land. Seminole lands are classified as first class, second class (the majority), and third class. Towns, missions, rivers, creeks, railroad lines, orphan asylums, and court houses are shown. OCLC locates a total of only three copies, at Yale, the Newberry Library, and the University of Tulsa. OCLC 54641115, 226657532.

        Eidgen. Amt für geistiges Eigentum, Patentschrift. Patent Nr. 21959, Klasse 57, 5. Mai 1900, 7 3/4 Uhr p.: Georg Luger, in Charlottenburg (Deutschland): Rückstosslader mit beweglichem Lauf und Kniegelenk-Verschluss.

      [Bern], Eidgenössisches Amt für geistiges Eigentum 1900 - 4°, 7 (1) S. Text u. 3 Doppeltaf., Geh., Min. knittrig, tadellos. Auf Hinterdeckel klein als «Amtsexemplar» gestempelt. Georg Johann Luger (1849-1923 in Fichtenau bei Berlin) war ein österreichischer Waffentechniker. Er ist der Erfinder der Parabellum-Pistole. Georg von Luger wurde während der 1870er Jahre mit Ferdinand Ritter von Mannlicher bekannt, der ihn schließlich aufgrund seiner Sprachkenntnisse und Weltgewandtheit als Handelsvertreter für den Waffenerzeuger Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabrik AG, vormals Ludwig Loewe & Co. in Berlin anwarb. Luger sollte das von DWM gefertigte Mannlicher M118 Gewehr in den italienischen Markt einführen und sich darüber hinaus seiner eigentlichen Neigung, der Waffenentwicklung, widmen.Im November 1894 führte ihn eine Vortrags- und Präsentationsreise zur Bewerbung neuer Produkte über die Schweiz, Deutschland und Belgien in die USA, wo er auch der U.S. Navy die Borchardt C93 vorführte. Die Verkaufsergebnisse waren schleppend, da die C93 vielerseits als zu groß, zu schwer und schlecht ausbalanciert kritisiert wurde.In Auswertung der Kundenwünsche entwickelte Luger in Berlin die C93 weiter. Nach Belastungs- und Hitzetests wurde ihm klar, dass ein völlig neues Konzept erstellt werden musste, aus dem der später legendär gewordene Kniegelenkverschluss entstand. Die neuartige Waffe wurde von den großen Militärmächten zunächst zurückgewiesen, einerseits aus Kostengründen, andererseits weil man sie als zu kompliziert für den Feldgebrauch einschätzte. Der Durchbruch erfolgte, nachdem die Schweizer Armee Lugers Entwurf bestellte und als erstes Militär einführte und zwar als ?Modell 1900? im Kaliber 7,65 mm Parabellum. 1100 gr. Schlagworte: Militaria-Waffen
