        Original Portrait Col. Sam Steele. Samuel Benfield Steele 1851 - 1919. In North-West Mounted Police Blue Patrol Jacket 1900

      Ottawa, Canada: Topley 1900. (Photograph) Very good. Original Photograph mounted on studio card: 7 5 / 8" X 5 3 / 8" Image: 5 1 / 2" X 3 7 / 8". Original Portrait Col. Sam Steele. Samuel Benfield Steele 1851 - 1919 Handwritten on reverse by Harwood Steele, Son of Sam Steele: Supt. S. B. Steele. Blue Patrol Jacket, N. W. M. P. 1900 Photographer: Topley, Ottawa. Neg # 79273. Major General Sir Samuel Benfield Steele, CB, KCMG, MVO (January 5, 1851 – January 30, 1919) was a famous member of the North West Mounted Police.He joined the local militia as a teenager and fought against the Fenians at the Battle of Ridgeway. He was sent west first to fight the Red River Rebellion of Louis Riel, but arrived after the Métis had surrendered. Steele had long been fascinated by the west, devouring the works of James Fenimore Cooper in his youth. He was especially interested in the First Nations, and spent his time in the west learning from them and the Metis. However he was recalled from Manitoba and based in Fort Henry in Kingston for the next few years.He was chosen to be one of the first members of the NWMP, being only the third officer sworn in. In 1873 he returned to Fort Garry with the new force and was put in charge of drilling the new recruits. Over the next few years he crisscrossed the prairies, before being assigned to NWMP headquarters to train new recruits.In 1881 he was assigned to meet with Sitting Bull, who fresh from defeating General Custer had moved into Canada and was demanding land for his people. Steele and a few officers met them and reached a peaceful agreement. This action won Steele great acclaim in the newspapers of the United States and was the beginning of his role as a public figure.In the North-West Rebellion Steele was dispatched with a small force. Missing the Battle of Batoche Steele and his force were sent to move against the last rebel force lead by Chief Big Bear. Steele and his two dozen Mounties defeated Big Bear's force at Loon Lake in the last battle ever fought on Canadian territory. The contributions of the NWMP to putting down the rebellion went largely ignored and unrewarded, to Steele's great annoyance. Steele spent the next ten years assigned to Fort McLeod, and at age 41 married Maria Harwood, eventually the couple had three children.In 1898 he was sent north to the Yukon to succeed Charles Constantine with policing during the Klondike Gold Rush. Initially, he was in charge of the customs posts at the Chilkoot Pass and White Pass, where he created the rule that no one would be allowed to enter without a ton of goods. Steele and his force made the Klondike Gold Rush into one of the most orderly events of its kind in history and made the police force famous around the world, which ensured its survival at a critical time when the force's dissolution was being debated in parliament.In 1900 he was second in command in Lord Strathcona's Horse, a Canadian light cavalry unit sent to South Africa during the Boer war and did so with distinction. Steele, however, disliked greatly what he was ordered to do by the British, which included burning towns and moving the populace to concentration camps.Steele was knighted in 1918 and was made a Companion of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George, and Member of the Royal Victorian Order.Canada's fifth tallest mountain, Mount Steele, is named after him..

Original brown coated endpapers. Some rubbing to extremities. A one-inch crack at the top of the front outer joint. Overall a very good copy.ìThese lectures on ëThe Essence of Christianityí by the then professor of church history at Berlin University were received with an enthusiasm unparalled for centuries in the field of religious pamphleteering. They proclaimed the fundamental concord of the tenets of the early Church as preserved in the non-Roman churches with the religious aspirations, the intellectual climate and the social and economic morality of the twentieth century; and innumerable reprints and translations broadcast this message of liberal Protestantism all over the world. Harnack [1851-1930] (ennobled in 1914) won internation fame as the leading student of the early Church...[His] influence upon the intellectual life of Germany was enormous. He was a co-founder and for many years the president of the Evangelic-Social Congress (1890) which brought together theologians, politicians and economists interested in the problems of social welfare...As director-general of the Prussian state library (1905-21) he initiated the work of the union catalogue of the German libraries as well as the international ëCatalogue of Incunabulaí (Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke)î (Printing and the Mind of Man).Printing and the Mind of Man 390.HBS 65351.$3,000

        Nawa Entomological Factory. A collection of eleven post-cards mounted with actual wings of butterflies.

      . Gifu, The Nawa Entomological Factory, ca. 1900. Postcards measuring 9 x 15 cm. Each card contained in the original envelope. The envelopes have a handwritten number and the word "Real Butterfly" in a neat old hand. The cards themselves have a printed species name; on the verso is the printer's address and an artistic butterfly and plant logo. * A very rare and curious item. At the beginning of the 20th century, Mr. Y. Nawa patented a method "by which the scaled patterns of butterflies and moths can be removed on to various articles, such as paper". The pressed specimens of butterflies were prepared by a patented procedure, to prevent them from decay. Whatever the secret of the patent was, it worked perfectly. Even a century later, the specimens still look fresh. The combination of actual wings and hand-painted bodies gives the postcards a somewhat surrealistic feel. Each card shows a different species of butterfly or moth, with hand-painted bodies on which are mounted actual wings taken from a caught specimen. Species depicted are: Ixias pyrene, Huphima nama, Danais agleioides, Danais vulgaris, Cyrestis thyodamas, Heboima glaueippi, Papilo annaeus Fruhs (2x),Fresis iphita Cram, Danais septemtrionis, Junonia lemonias. We found no reference in the handbooks to these postcards, but the Nawa Entomological Factory published a booklet in 1909, entitled "Pressed Specimens of Butterflies and Moths", which explains a bit more about the factory and its merchandise..

        London to Ladysmith via Pretoria

      Longmans, Green, and Co., London 1900 - This is Churchill's fourth book and the first of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. This one relates the exciting story of his capture by the Boers and the subsequent daring escape that made him a celebrity. The first edition is a beautiful book, but notoriously fragile and prone to wear, soiling, and spotting. This first edition, first printing copy is not fine, but is far better than most copies we see. Spine presentation is the distinguishing feature of this copy; the spine cloth is unusually clean and both the gilt and red lettering remaining bright and clearly legible and with only minor wrinkling at the spine ends. The pictorial front cover shows only light soiling at the edges. The blank rear cover is lightly soiled and stained, but shows only minimal wear at the corners. The contents are bright and clean with virtually no internal spotting and no previous owner inscriptions. Spotting is confined to the text block edges. The original black endpapers are intact. Maps and plans are present, clean, and crisp. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.1.a, Woods/ICS A4(a.1), Langworth p.53. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        EARLY 20th-CENTURY PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM, CONSISTING OF TWENTY-FOUR PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN IN VLADIVOSTOK CIRCA JUNE 1900, EACH WITH CONTEMPORARY HANDWRITTEN ANNOTATIONS IN GERMAN.

      [Vladivostok. ]. 1900 - Twenty-four photographs (3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches each), each print matted on heavy paper of commercial photograph album. Early 20th-century German photograph album with textured paper boards and spine. Front board decoratively embossed with image of a flower and the words, "Moderne Lichtbildere." Top and bottom of spine, edges of boards, and outer joints moderately worn. Mounts separating, but very good. Images very clean overall and in very good condition. An album of twenty-four original photographs taken in Vladivostok in June 1900. The snapshot- size images are each matted one per page in a German-made photograph album, and each image is inscribed in a contemporary hand in German. The photographs include views of the port, Russian naval ships and numerous other vessels, the city center, the post office, street scenes, buildings and houses (including a German brewery), and pictures of everyday life. Due to its location in the Russian Far East on the coast of the Sea of Japan and near both the Chinese and Korean borders, Vladivostok was a settlement with numerous international residents and visitors, and this heterogeneity is recorded in this album. Half of the photographs are of people, including images of Russians, Chinese, and Koreans. Photographs of local Chinese residents predominate, with images of a waterman filling his wagon, a fruit seller in the market, another seller in the market with his measuring scale, and other laborers. Other images in the album include Korean children playing, various neighborhoods and locales, and a family portrait (complete with cow) in front of a house. A fine turn-of-the- century album consisting of original contemporary photographs of Vladivostok, with numerous images of the local population. Due to its strategic location, Soviet Russia later kept the port under the highest security, and any photographs of it are uncommon.

        The son of the wolf: tales of the far north

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1900. Hardcover. frontis by Maynard Dixon inserted, [i-viii] [1] 251p., printer's imprint [252] blank leaf, very good blackish green cloth with silver buckled belt and corners, silver on spine somewhat worn, first edition, printing of 2028 copies according to Sisson/Martens pages 2 &116 and BAL 11869 and Woodbridge. Publisher's imprint at bottom of spine first state with no periods around ampersand : Houghton | Mifflin & Co.; no broken type on page 147 (perfect "e" in spruce and perfect "t" in might) no broken type on 64-67, commas before and after 1900 on copyright page, sets of binding threads between 6/7, 18/19 and every six leaves thereafter. Two neat previous owners' book plates on front endpapers. This copy matches all first printing, first state points with the following two discrepancies from Sisson: 1. the frontispiece has the caption "Malemute Kid Halted Him" (page 64) as opposed to "The Men of the Forty Mile" as stated in Sisson; 2. The frontispiece appears to be inserted rather than sewn-in although Swann's auctioned described first printing with frontis tipped-in stating later printings were sewn-in, a disagreement with Sisson. Also, to this bibliographer the color of the binding is in question as well. Appears to be a blackish-green but could be interpreted as a deep gray-green. All-in-all a very nice copy of the author's rare first book
