        Album photographique - Souvenir de la campagne de Chine 14 août 1900 - 18 septembre 1901

      Exceptional album gathering a total of 57 original photographs in prints and argentic contemporary vintage. These photographs were made between 1900 and 1901 by the military doctor Henry Coullaud (1872-1954).Contemporary binding in half blue percaline with corners, smooth back mute, plates of flowery paper, a red label presenting Chinese ideograms was laminated on the first board.The Chinese calligraphy on this label, as explained by Professor Denis Coullaud, is the name of the doctor: "" In Kou-Lou, the wonderful hand that makes the spring ". Thus one could translate a Chinese inscription whose characters stood out in black on the crimson background of a narrow vertical banner. It was called a "pagan". On a beautiful spring morning of the year 1900, this present was brought in great pomp, preceded by a nasal music of a clarinet, accompanied by the small sound of a small flute, and rhythmic tambourine. The Wang family, whose patriarch had successfully operated on the cataract, thanked the physician-major Coullaud. The Chinese had translated its name by phonetic approximation, drawing the two characters "kou" and "lou". (In Pr. Denis Coullaud, The Wonderful Hand That Makes Spring , 1992).Each photograph was annotated (place and legend) by the photographer who also wrote a dedication on the back of the title page of the first album: "To my sister, loving memory of his brother Henry, Bordeaux October 25, 1901".A young military doctor weary of garrison life in the metropolis and dreaming of adventure, Henry Coullaud asked the Ministry to leave for the Chinese Campaign. His request accepted, he embarked on August 19, 1900 on the Alexander III in the 1st battalion of the Regiment of Foot infantry.The beginning of the album contains photographs of the crew of the Alexander III. Several shots then represent the stopovers made by the crew: Port-Saïd, Djibouti, Singapore and finally the harbor of Ta-Kou reached forty-two days after the departure of Marseille. This first part, concerning the actual crossing, consists essentially of port photographs and several photographs representing the Djiboutian population. It is a precious testimony to the beginning of the development of the then capital city of the French Somali Coast.A second part concerns the different Chinese cities in which Dr. Coullaud practiced: Tong-Kou, Tien-Tsin, Pao-Ting-Fou, Ting-Tcheou (Tin-Tjô), Cheng-Feng, Sou-Kiao, Si-Gnan -Shien and Tai-To. His photographs, of a raw realism, offer us a vast panorama of the life in China, at the same time of Sino-French relations but also of the urban and rural life of the natives. It includes the official activities of the French delegation: scenic tours, artistic performances organized (theater, parade acrobats or Chinese orchestra overflowing with French flags on the occasion of July 14), military journals and official photographs mixing senior dignitaries Chinese and French graduates, etc. Some clichés also depict the impartiality of the judicial machine in the midst of the Boxers' revolt: Chinese police in archaic uniform, insurgent heads exposed in cages in the public square, but also fivefold capital execution.The amateur photographer also gives pride of place to historical monuments, realizing views of cities, pagodas, towers, gates and other walls. But what seems to fascinate the young doctor above all else is the life of the street. We note several shots of women with tiny feet bandaged, a few years before the prohibition of this millennial erotic mutilation. Coullaud also immortalises the daily life of the little people, through country scenes and small trades (barbers, washing machines ...), but also those of notables and even mandarins solemn poses.Through this unique album, important testimony to ethnological value, Major Henry Coullaud gives us an overall view of Chinese life at the turn of the twentieth century.14 août 1900 - 18 septembre 1901 Album : 24x19cm, photographies : formats divers 1 album relié

        [Photo Album]: S.S. Bremen, Paris and London

      Paris, London, 1900. Good. Oblong small quarto measuring 7" x 11". String-tied olive cloth over paper boards with "Paris 1907 London" printed on the front board. Contains 51 sepia toned gelatin silver photographs with some captions measuring between 2" x 3" and 4.5" x 6.5" affixed to stiff black paper. A good album with loose pages, toning, and lifting cloth with near fine photographs.A photo album kept of a transatlantic journey on the German vessel S.S. Bremen which made stops in Paris and London before returning to the United States in 1905. The vessel built in 1896 was part of the Hamburg America Line and used the same route as the Titanic would a few years later. The album shows many of the crew and passengers posing around the ship with photos of crew members lounging and reading on the upper deck, crew members posing with a woman, and other vessels they passed on the water. Once in Paris the photographs show the streets and crowds of the city. Roughly ten photos show the group at a horse race presumably the Paris Grand Prix at Longchamp with photos of the stands and the crowd in beautiful dresses, huge feathered hats, and men in tuxes. Created by the Societe d'Encouragement in 1863, the Paris Grand Prix was the leading "flat race" showcasing the "best home-bred three-year-olds" until it was surpassed in 1920 when the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe began. After Paris the company stopped in London shown here in photographs of cobblestone streets and busy town centers before returning to the Bremen and returning home. It is assumed that the photo album was put together later than the trip as the book reads "1907" while the few captions that are present read "1905."An interesting look at sea travel and upper middle class events during the early 1900s.

First UK edition, first issue (with the larger lettering at base of spine); published simultaneously with and today somewhat scarcer than the New York edition, which had a different cover design. Frederick Cook joined the Belgian Antarctic Expedition as surgeon and anthropologist, in which capacity he had served on the Peary Greenland expedition, though he and Peary fell out. The expedition was caught in the ice after crossing the Antarctic circle whereupon 'Cook soon proved the most invaluable of the scientists, devising an antiscorbutic diet and observing some of the curious physical and mental effects caused by the absence of sunlight. He devised a crude form of light therapy to treat what is now commonly known as seasonal affective disorder, alleviating the condition by placing the afflicted crew members before an open fire... the extraordinary services rendered by Frederick Cook, upon whom the survival of the expedition had depended, were fully acknowledged. He received the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society of Belgium and a knighthood from the King' (Howgego). Cook was the first to publish, beating the accounts of Gerlache and Lecointe, the expedition leaders, into print. Provenance: Private collection (Australia)

Newly bound in full dark green morocco with raised bands, gilt titles to spine, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt.Light and occasional spotting, first gathering washed when bound, exterior unmarked.

Winston Churchill's personal account of the first five months of the Boer War, which includes impressions on the Relief of Ladysmith, and also the story of WSC's capture, and dramatic escape from the Boers. He was captured while a military reporter, but fled his prison camp and travelled almost 300 miles to Portuguese Lourenço Marques in Delagoa Bay, with the assistance of an English mine manager. His escape made him a minor national hero for a time in Britain, though instead of returning home, he rejoined General Buller's army on its march to relieve the British at the Siege of Ladysmith and take Pretoria. He was one of the first British troops through, and in fact, alongside his cousin the Duke of Marlborough, was able to get ahead on horseback to demand and receive the surrender of 52 Boer guards from the prison camp.

His escape made him a minor national hero for a time in Britain, though instead of returning home, he rejoined General Buller's army on its march to relieve the British at the Siege of Ladysmith and take Pretoria. He was one of the first British troops through, and in fact, alongside his cousin the Duke of Marlborough, was able to get ahead on horseback to demand and receive the surrender of 52 Boer guards from the prison camp.

        London To Ladysmith Via Pretoria

      London: Longmans, Green, 1900. First edition of Churchill's fourth book and personal record of his impressions during the first five months of the Second Boer War. Octavo, original pictorial cloth, with three folding maps (one printed in color). In very good condition with light rubbing. A sharp example. When the Boer settlers in South Africa rebelled against British authority, Churchill joined with the 21st Lancers and "secured an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post... He had scarcely arrived [in South Africa] before he was involved in a skirmish which found him 'in durance vile': a prisoner of war in Pretoria, unable to talk himself out of prison by claiming to be a reporter, and nearly mad over the lack of action. Typically, he made a daring escape... The true-life adventure story of his successful escapade dominates this book, one of the most gripping in the canon, making this one of his most popular books" (Langworth).

        Through the First Antarctic Night 1898-99. A Narrative of the Voyage of the "Belgica" among Newly Discovered Lands, and Over an Unknown Sea about the South Pole.

      London: William Heinemann. 1900. Octavo, with colour frontispiece and three other coloured plates, 74 plates, and 21 illustrations and maps in the text; original blue cloth, ship image in white on front cover. First UK edition, first issue (with the larger lettering at base of spine); published simultaneously with and today somewhat scarcer than the New York edition, which had a different cover design. Frederick Cook joined the Belgian Antarctic Expedition as surgeon and anthropologist, in which capacity he had served on the Peary Greenland expedition, though he and Peary fell out. The expedition was caught in the ice after crossing the Antarctic circle whereupon 'Cook soon proved the most invaluable of the scientists, devising an antiscorbutic diet and observing some of the curious physical and mental effects caused by the absence of sunlight. He devised a crude form of light therapy to treat what is now commonly known as seasonal affective disorder, alleviating the condition by placing the afflicted crew members before an open fire... the extraordinary services rendered by Frederick Cook, upon whom the survival of the expedition had depended, were fully acknowledged. He received the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society of Belgium and a knighthood from the King' (Howgego). Cook was the first to publish, beating the accounts of Gerlache and Lecointe, the expedition leaders, into print. Provenance: Private collection (Australia) In good condition.
