        Writing Folio (or Blotter) Promotion with Chinese-style Faux Lacquer (Faux Mother-of-Pearl and Paper Mache Boards), Produced by F. Hoffmann-La Roche & Cie.

      Paris - Handsome folder promoting opium as a pharmaceutical! N.d., circa 1900 to 1910. 30 by 23 cm. Tabularly-presented text is on the endpapers, with four leaves of heavy blank yellow paper bound in by string. On the two page table of particular interest, in our view, is the drug called "Pantopon 'Roche'" whose composition is "Opium Total". Other drugs, we note, contain "barbiturate." The opium-connection might explain the Chinoiserie decoration of the binder. Of course, the boards are also very decorative, making this binder a prized promotional giveaway, which we assume it would have been to the company's customers and other contacts. The Basel-based Hoffmann La Roche was founded in 1896 and soon had offices in Paris. It remains to this day a pharmaceutical giant. Minor surface loss to the black faux lacquer surface along the edges. Ink and pencil marks abounding on the yellow blanks, suggesting these were used as blotter paper. Minor loss and looseness to the endpaper at the spine.

Pre-dates the UK publication. Author's only novel, having just published a short seafaring tale 'Man Overboard' in Harmsworth's Magazine (1899).

        Savrola

      London, Longmans, Green & Co.,, 1900. A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania. Octavo, contemporary black cloth rebind, title gilt to the spine. Bookplate of Culcheth Sunday School Circulating Library to the front pastedown, occasional blind stamps to the text. A little rubbed, somewhat cocked, endpapers browned, marginal browning else, a sound copy. First UK edition. This novel represents the author's only attempt at full-length fiction, a melodramatic tale of a liberal revolution in an autocratic Mediterranean state: the hero, Savrola, was a compound of himself and Lord Randolph. An interesting choice for a Sunday School library. The UK edition was delayed by the serialization of the story in Macmillan's Magazine between May and December 1899, so the US issue of November 1899 was actually published first.

His most famous work is MADEMOISELLE DE MAUPIN, an historical romance based on the life of French opera star Mlle Maupin, who was a first-rate swordswoman and often went about disguised as a man. Another well-known work is his short story "La Morte Amoureuse," the story of a priest who falls in love with a beautiful woman who turns out to be a vampire.

        Photo Album - Japan in Transformation - Meiji Era - Mie Prefecture

      Mie, Japan, 1900. Mie Prefecture, Japan, circa 1895-1925. Original Photograph Album from the progressive Meiji period, mainly centered in Mie-Ken, which illustrates an era characterized by modernization, including the integration of females in educational institutions as well as the work force, Western influence in medicine, rural development, and dress. Contains 116 photographs, albumens and silver print gelatins, mounted recto and verso onto black cardstock leaves, a scant few with embedded captions in Japanese. Oblong folio string-tied album made in Asia and measuring approximately 37 x 28 cm, black cloth boards with embossed motif to front. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 3,5 x 5,5 cm, and the largest 27 x 21 cm. Occasional fading or creasing, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a rare compilation of images. The Meiji era was a time of rapid change, extending from 8 September 1868 through 30 July 1912, and represents the first half of the Empire of Japan, during which Emperor Meiji-Tenno led Japanese society from being an isolated, pre-industrial, feudal society, to a modernized nation. Fundamental changes affected its social and political structure, economy, military, and foreign relations. Industrialization was accelerated such that it rose as an imposing military power by the year 1905. Japan's samurai increased to 1.9 million, each being paid fixed stipends. The military was augmented with nationwide conscription and a mandatory four year service term by every male. The Japanese Land Tax Reform of 1873, or chisokaisei, instituting for the first time, the right of private land ownership. Rapid growth was also seen in industrialization, resulting in improved infrastructure and modern communications, the developement of shipyards, iron smelters, spinning mills, and a railway system, increased production, international trade, and consequently, massive migration to industrializing centers from the countryside. Education, military, medicine, and improved infrastructure are the highlights of this album, which, congruent with the period, illustrate the larger story of an industrious transformation for Japan, with overtones of Western influence integrating into indigenous tradition. The compiler of the album is unidentified but was conceivably a leader in children and adult education, and also an advocate of feminism in Japan. Captioned photos from 1907 to 1920 are taken of various graduating 6th grade classes (the highest level before college or university studies). At least two of the latter are taken at Takenogun. A photograph of a large formal gathering is captioned "Shimazu Women's Meeting Place, October 1902" [translation from Japanese]. Nurses also pose in group photographs. Perhaps most fascinating views are the glimpses into medical science, with one particularly striking image of nine male medical students dissecting human cadavres under the guidance of two surgeons or anatomists. Being early in the learning and implementation of Western chirurgery, one cannot help but notice the conditions which would also provide excellent opportunity for studing bacterial infection. The latter is a very rare and large photograph measuring 26 x 21 cm. In one of the school graduate photographs, a male teacher appears to be blind, evidently having had surgery to sew his eyes closed, and having healed from burn wounds on his jaw and neck. [Prior to the arrival of German physician Philipp Franz von Siebold in 1823, ancient Chinese medicine had been predominant in Japan. Only in the Dutch settlement of Dejima in Nagasaki, where he was posted as resident physician and scientist, were Japanese able to learn about Western culture and Western medicine. Through medical education and services provided, Philipp Franz von Siebold introduced Western surgery. Finally in 1854, when Emperor Meiji opened his nation to the world, several German physicians were invited to provide medical education in Japan. Physician Keiko Okami was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western medicine, first being an English school teeacher in Japan, then graduating from Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1889. The German medical education system continued until about 1950.] A recent newspaper article announces a philanthropist gesture in Mie-ken, by local physician Dr. Kotani, who constructed a children's amusement park on an unused parcel of land. This is accompanied by a caricature sketch and small portrait photograph of him. Illustrating further advancement in medicine, and simultaneously in women's recognition and rights, some early photographs show Japanese nurses using their instruments and making patient notes, with a doctor in the room. Their uniforms are those of St. Luke's Hospital which was founded in Tokyo in 1891. We also find a group of eight graduate nurses. And, a group of men poses in front of the maternity ward of Hamada Hospital, as per the caption. [The Kyoto Nursing School was founded in 1886, although nursing would not become an officially established part of Japan's health care system in 1899 with the Midwives Ordinance. The Registered Nurse Ordinance was passed in 1915, legally substantiating registered nurses in Japan. In 1927 St. Luke's College of Nursing became the first college of its type established in Japan, and finally in 1952 Japan established its first nursing university. The foundation for the Imperial Japanese Army's Medical Department was laid earlier however, when in 1870 thirteen students were sent to Germany to study western medicine. By 1877, a medical school staffed with German professors was opened at the Imperial University. Although advanced knowledge by the beginning of the Second World War, the Imperial Army unfortunately maintained the medical system it had during the Russo-Japanese War, and consequently suffered more deaths from disease than necessary.] A photograph captioned and dated 15 June 1924 captures a large number of male labourers who were in the process of building irrigation canals, or yosui, while another taken on the same day, is captioned "Miyogi Co. or Miyagi Co." [The Meiji Irrigation Canal was a economically significant irrigations works project which opened its first channel in 1880 and continued being built into the 1930s, as part of Japan's great modernization strategy. It especially transformed Anjo from a barren land into a model of modern agriculture.] Other images are of men serving in the Japanese military, some of whom may have fought in the Russo-Japanese War in 1904-1905, men in traditional samurai and martial arts costume, one of whom resembles Morihei Ueshiba. Changes in clothing are demonstrated throughout the album, with women in the kimono with geta footwear and sandals, men and women donning tabi socks, elders in traditional robes, while in contrast western styles appear mainly with men in business suits and western shoes, and young men in formal university uniform. Mie-Kei (Mie Prefecture), Kansai region, Honshu, Japan: Mie is known for its ancient Ise Shrine, an important Shinto shrine complex known as Jingu, one of the religious order's holiest and most important sites, and a popular pilgrimage site. During the Edo period or Tokugawa period, the area now known as Mie Prefecture consisted of several feudal domains, each ruled by an appointed lord, within four dividsions - the Ise Province, Shima Province, Iga Province and part of Kii Province. During the Meiji Restoration, the former provinces were reorganized on several occasions, including the seat of leadership. The Mie Prefecture took its present-day form in 1876, when it merged with its southern neighbor.. Very Good.

        Album of photographs of the scenery and people of Norfolk Island in the South Pacific Ocean

      Norfolk Island 1900 - (13 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches). 42 carbon prints on 42 cream card album leaves, each mounted within ruled frame with printed caption below, the photographs measuring approximately 6x8 inches. Contemporary red morocco, upper cover titled in gilt within a gilt border, marbled endpapers, gilt edges Provenance: Hon. B.R. Wise, Attorney General (lettered in gilt on upper cover) Early photographs of a remote Pacific Island. Norfolk Island, a largely autocratic dependency of Australia, was first sighted by Captain James Cook on his second voyage and settled by the First Fleet in 1788. For the first half century of the 19th century, the island was largely used as a penal colony, with many of the worst offenders transferred from Australia to the remote island. In the 1850s, after use of the island as a penal colony was abandoned, the island was settled by the Pitcairn Island descendents of the Bligh mutineers. In the 1860s, the Anglican church established a large Melanesian mission on the island. The present images, by an unknown but likely Australian photographer, comprise views of Kingston, various lagoons and bays, landscape scenes featuring the island's iconic pine tree and other vegetation, images at the Melanesian Mission and group portraits of the island's inhabitants (presumably including Bligh mutineer descendents). The original owner of this album was Bernhard Ringrose Wise (1858-1916), whose name appears on the upper cover; Wise served as the Attorney General of Australia from 1899-1904.

        Ian Hamilton's March

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1900. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is the British first edition, first printing of Churchill's fifth published book. Ian Hamilton's March was the second of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa during the Boer War. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted between the descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa and the British. Churchill, an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter, on 15 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later rendered him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill's first book of Boer War despatches, London to Ladysmith via Pretoria was published in England in mid-May 1900 and sold well. Ian Hamilton's March completes Churchill's coverage of the Boer War, publishing 17 letters to the Morning Post, spanning 31 March through 14 June 1900. The narrative in Ian Hamilton's March includes the liberation of the Pretoria prison camp where Churchill had been held. Though a companion and sequel to London to Ladysmith, it is notably different in appearance, content, and scarcity. The first printing saw only 5,000 copies - half as many copies as London to Ladysmith. Where Ladysmith bore a lavishly illustrated binding, Ian Hamilton's March was bound in red cloth matching the style of Churchill's first published book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force - fitting, as these were the first and last Churchill first editions published by Longmans, Green, and Co. While London to Ladysmith via Pretoria had swiftly published Churchill's dispatches in the wake of his capture and escape, for Ian Hamilton's March "the texts of the originally published letters were more extensively revised and four letters were included which had never appeared in periodical form" (Cohen, A8.1.a, Vol. I, p.105). Churchill effected these revisions while on board the passenger and cargo steamer Dunottar Castle which was requisitioned as a troop ship, en route home to England. Arriving home from South Africa in July 1900, Churchill spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, where he won his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election". This British first edition of Ian Hamilton's March was published just a few weeks later. This first edition, first printing is in very good condition. The tight and square binding is unusually bright and clean for the edition, with vivid color and gilt, superior spine presentation, and only minor wear to extremities. The cosmetic flaw that prevents our grading - and pricing - this copy higher is faint evidence that something was once taped across the lower spine. The discoloration is barely discernible on the spine and rear cover, only readily noticeable as a 2 x .75 inch strip of mild discoloration to the lower front cover. This would be consistent with an ex-library spine label, except for the fact that there are absolutely no ex-library markings. The only previous ownership marks are the decorative bookplate of "Aubrey P. Taylor" affixed to the front pastedown and the same name ("A. P. Taylor") inked to the half title with the date "1900". The contents remain bright with a crisp feel. All maps and plans are intact, as is the original frontispiece and tissue guard, as well as the original black endpapers. Moderate spotting appears substantially confined to the prelims and page edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.1.a, Woods/ICS A5(a), Langworth p.59

        Die Traumdeutung

      Leipzig & Vienna: Franz Deuticke,, 1900. Octavo (225 × 145 mm). Near contemporary black cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge red. Occasional pencil underlining and marginalia; binder's stamp to rear pastedown. Text block lightly strained in a few places and cracked between pp. 16-17, but firm, light toning to margins, ink mark to p. 33, partially blotting out three letters, table of contents leaf repaired and reinforced with japon along top margin and gutter. A very good copy. First edition of Freud's greatest single work, The Interpretation of Dreams, one of only 600 copies. "Die Traumdeutung contains Freud's general theory of the psyche, which he had developed during the past decade. Using his refined understanding of the operation of the unconscious, Freud interpreted dreams on the basis of wish-fulfilment theory and discussed displacement (the appearance in conscious thought of symbols for repressed desires), regression, Oedipal impulses, and the erotic nature of dreams. Although this was his first major work on normal psychology, Freud gave an unprecedented precision and force to the idea of the essential similarities of normal and abnormal behaviour, opening up the door to the irrational that had been closed to Western psychology since the time of Locke" (Norman). "It contains all the basic components of psychoanalytic theory and practice" (PMM). The book was published on 4 November 1899 (though post-dated by the publisher) but sold so slowly that the second edition did not appear until nine years later.

        By Appointement to H. M. King Edward VII. L'Alchimiste Gelot et Sa Cloche a Melon.

      Ca 1900, Paris: - Lithograph by the French caricaturist 'SEM', Georges Goursat (1863-1934), who was recognized for his caricatures of socialites of the French Belle Epoque and of the people who served their fashion needs. He was active in the early years of the 20th century.The caricature depicts a bowler hat being produced through 'alchemy' by the famous Paris hat maker Gelot, located at the place Vendome. Gelot was the preferred hat maker of King Edward VII; his coat of arms is at the top of the image. The hat maker raises a domed cover or cloche to reveal a freshly produced black bowler hat, as steam billows in the background. One has the impression the hat was fashioned or cooked up through some instant proprietary process, and all the hat maker had to do was raise the lid to reveal his latest creation. The cloche was perfected by the French as a way of protecting tender plants. Lithograph with stenciled color, signed in the plate. Approximately 13 x 19 3/4". [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        EDUCATION OF THE NEGRO

      [Albany, New York]: Department of Education for the United States Commission to the Paris Exposition of 1900, [copyright 1899].. 44pp. Large octavo. Original printed wrappers. Toe of spine gnawed away at an angle, affecting text block but nowhere even remotely affecting (or approaching) text, thin strip of erosion to spine covering, lower wrapper has soft crease and light dust-soiling, two small corner chips to wrappers, but otherwise a good, sound copy. First edition of Washington's fourth book, albeit a monograph, published in the series edited by Nicholas M. Butler, "Monographs on Education in the United States," intended for distribution at the Paris Exposition which began in April 1900. However, copyright was taken in 1899 by J.B. Lyon and Company, the Albany printers who produced the work, and it was reprinted at least once, again by Lyon and Company in 1904, for distribution at the St. Louis Universal Exposition. This earlier printing for distribution in France tends to be uncommon.

In den Rändern links und unten ungleichmäßig beschnitten, in der linken unteren Ecke ein Nagellöchlein. Mit dem vorliegenden Blatt, das sich durch eine spannungsreiche Komposition und Pinselführung auszeichnet, griff Poppe auf ein bei den französischen Impressionisten beliebtes Bildthema zurück - der Akt im Freien. In der statuarischen Auffassung der Figur werden zudem Erinnerungen an Plastiken der klassischen Antike wach.. Georg Poppe besuchte 1900-1902 die Kunstschule in Breslau und 1903-1911 die Kunstakademie in Karlsruhe, wo er ein Meisterschüler W. Trübners (1851-1917) war. Nach Beendigung seiner Studienzeit im Jahr 1911 lebte er als freischaffender Maler und Graphiker in Frankfurt am Main.
