        Turn-of-the-Century Photograph Album of Egypt

      Cairo: Photographie Fropein, 1900-5. Cairo: Photographie Fropein,, 1900-5. Oblong octavo album (138 x 242 mm). Contemporary red cloth, titles to front board gilt, marbled endpapers. 24 photographs (ranging from 56 x 77 mm to 147 x 74 mm; most approximately 145 x 50 mm) mounted on either dark grey, dark blue, or blue-grey mounting board. The majority captioned in pencil on verso. Binding a little faded and soiled, spine ends and edges of boards lightly rubbed, a few small dark marks to top edge, endpapers slightly foxed, mounting boards very gently bowed, light offsetting from photographs to verso of mounting boards. An excellent album with clear and clean photographs. A collection of panorama photographs of Cairo and surroundings, produced by the Cairo-based commercial studio Photographie Fropein. The earliest photograph is dated c. 1899, while the owner's pencil marginalia seems to have been added sometime in 1903-04. With the number of European travellers in Egypt growing during the 19th century, 'to have seen certain sites and monuments became virtually obligatory' (Lyons, Antiquity & Photography, p.11). While it can be assumed that the owner of this album did visit sites such as Thebes and Karnak, most of these do not appear in the album. Certain photographs reflect the traditional tourist itinerary, with views of Giza, Philae, and Memphis, but most are representative of everyday life. A photograph taken at Dashur, rather than depicting pyramids, portrays a local fisherman and has an extensive pencilled note describing the use of cast nets. Other subjects include dahabiyas and feluccas, local travellers, goat herds and geese flocks, as well as several views of the annual flooding of the Nile. Many of these, apart from the distinctly un-monumental character of the subject matter, are pleasingly artistic, achieving a striking simplicity in tone and composition which, combined with the realism, reflects an almost Barbizon aesthetic. Also included is a portrait photo and autograph of the British artist Frederick F. Ogilvie (1871-c.1930), who relocated to Egypt during the early 20th century to paint watercolour views of Cairo and the surrounding landscape; he occasionally exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Scottish Academy, and Walker's Gallery, London.

        The Problem of Increasing Human Energy with Special Reference to the Harnessing of the Sun's Engery." Bound in A Year of the Century Magazine vol. LX May, 1900, to October, 1900

      New York: The Century Co, 1900. New York: The Century Co, 1900. First edition. In original publisher's dark pebbled cloth with floral stamping on the boards and gilt title on the spine. An excellent copy overall, with just trivial wear at the extremities. Containing the first edition of Tesla's famous article in which he discusses all known methods for harnessing energy from nature and then proposes a radical new method that he claimed would be "self-acting," essentially a perpetual motion machine run by converting ambient heat into electrical energy. & & Tesla was an innovator and inventory of the first order, working for Einstein before launching his own company with a series of important patents. Tesla is best known for his work on alternating current transformers and inductors, as well as pioneering work in radio communication. After a prominent career in the early 20th century, Tesla's work has been largely ignored until the last few decades. He is now something of a cult hero, given the vast body of work that he generated.

        An original watercolour and photograph composite image of the members of an American hunt

      [circa 1900]. Gray watercolour wash, heightened with white, 32 heads of hunt members supplied as cut-around photographs mounted in position, signed 'T.A. Liebler delt.' lower right corner, blindstamp 'Reynolds Super Fine London Board' lower left. 18 3/16 x 22 5/16 inches. A high quality image, evidently the original artwork intended for reproduction by some photo-mechanical printing method. A fine composition with the landscape and horses meticulously observed. The hunt is arranged in two ranks with the exception of one horse and rider out front (perhaps the Master of the hunt) and a second arriving on the right, an apparent late-comer. In the background to the left is a building (possibly the hunt stables or kennels) which appears to be flying the American flag from a flag pole on the roof. Nothing appears to be recorded about Theodore Liebler, which is unexpected, as he was clearly an equestrian artist of some considerable ability.

        Electric Waves : Being Researches on the Propagation of Electric Action with Finite Velocity Through Space

      Macmillan, 1900. Macmillan, 1900. A very good 278 page hardback book, ex Wigan & District Mining & Technical College Library, with usual stamps and labels. Second Edition, 1900 (first edition was 1894). Renewal sheet has never been stamped, but the book has been read since it has scattered light pencilling, mainly concentrated in chapter two. Paper on front hinge is split, though the cloth is sound. Text block nice and tight, edges a little dusty. Light rub to corners of cover.This is the book - the one book - which started it all. Without this, no radio, no television, no cellular telephones, no modern society as we know it. To hold this book - with a foreword by Kelvin, dedicated to Helmholtz, translated by Jones - is to hold the Twentieth Century in your hand. Pulling together the earlier work of Faraday & Maxwell, Henry, Helmholtz and the rest, and building upon all of this, Hertz presents us with a summary of progress in the understanding of the propagation of electromagnetic waves up to the end of the nineteenth century, and proves in practice the existence of waves which, previously, had existed only in the abstract form of Maxwell's mathematics. A "must" for any collector of the books which mark the milestones of human knowledge. ASIN B000XCY70A. Second Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No DJ.

      . . "Antwort [unterstrichen], Mechtshausen, 15. Oct. 1900. // Sehr geehrter Herr! Es freut mich, Ihnen bestätigen zu können, daß die betreffenden Verse im Fremdenbuch der Schneekoppe nicht von mir sind. Auch sonst schon bin ich mit albernen Fälschungen meines Namens bedacht worden, aber die Thäter haben sich immer feig versteckt gehalten. Da ist nun dieser Hirsch' ein edleres Thier. Er hat wenigsten nachträglich den Muth gehabt, seine Thorheit zu bekennen, und wenn er sogar obendrein stolz darauf ist, so darf ihm das wohl von Herzen gegönnt werden. // Noch mehr über den Fall zu sagen, verlohnt sich der Mühe nicht. // Hochachtungsvoll Wilh. Busch." - // - Der Leinen-Fabrikant Julius Reich aus Warmbrunn hatte in seinem zweiseitigen Brief (S. 1 u. S. 4 eines Doppelblattes mit gedrucktem Absender) am 13. Oktober an Wilhelm Busch geschrieben, er habe in der Schlesischen Zeitung' ein mit dem Namen Busch unterzeichnetes lustiges Poem "dem Fremdenbuch der Schneekoppe entnommen" gefunden und fährt fort: "Bald darauf erschien im Boten aus dem Riesengebirge' eine poetische Erklärung eines Breslauer, Namens Hirsch, der sich darüber lustig machte, daß die Zeitungen auf das Poem hereingefallen wären, da Busch niemals auf der Koppe gewesen & er selbst der Verfasser des Gedichtes sei. Besagter Hirsch gefällt sich in der Rolle des Wilhelm Busch II und veröffentlicht heute wiederum ein kleines Gedicht, in welchem er um Einsendung der Zeitungsnummern, die sich mit ihm beschäftigen, bittet." - Reich schließt mit der Frage an Busch, ob er einmal der Schneekoppen einen Besuch abgestattet und dort einige Zeilen in das Fremdenbuch eingetragen habe. (vgl.: Bohne, 1282 und Anhang 4, S. 316) - // - Bei ihm wichtigen Antwortbriefen verfasste Wilhelm Busch meist gleich auf einer freien Stelle des in dieser Sache an ihn selbst gerichteten Schreibens einen Entwurf, den er für sich aufbewahrte. So konnte er die ihm als Maler wichtige schöne Form ("Layout") entwerfen, als tüchtiger Hausvater Papier sparen und er hatte das Schreiben an ihn und seine Antwort zusammen verfügbar. - Unser Antwortentwurf zu dem verloren gegangenen, per Post an den Empfänger geschickten Brief stammt aus dem Hause von Otto Nöldeke. Dies war der Neffe, in dessen Pfarrhaus in Mechtshausen Wilhelm Busch seinen Lebensabend verbrachte. Als erster Herausgeber von W. Buschs Werken hatte er dessen Nachlass geordnet und dabei im Brief von Reich (in Rot) ein Datum korrigiert.
