Some toning, marginal wear and minor tears.Kimball authors his own account of the ship\'s capsizing in the Yukon River in July 1900 that resulted in the deaths of three passengers. Kimball who was in Alaska at the time working on a survey, offers an analysis of the disaster from an engineering standpoint: \"Total destruction was wrought in an instant but too sharp a turn in an 8-mile current with a boat so loaded down that her guards were half under water. Crates of furniture on the hurricane [sic] deck doubtless added to her instability, which was obvious to all the passengers. A few moments of listing first to one side - then to the other - gave the last warning of her instability. With a final and decisive list to the starboard followed by a lurch, the cargo was spilled and the boat capsized. The top-hamp

        History of New York, A

      New York: R.H. Russell, 1900. - One of 100 Deluxe Copies with the Plates in Two States[PARRISH, Maxfield, illustrator]. IRVING, Washington. A History of New York from the Beginning of the World to the End of the Dutch Dynasty. Containing, among Many Surprising and Curious Matters, the Unutterable Ponderings of Walter the Doubter, the Disastrous Projects of William the Testy, and the Chivalric Achievements of Peter the Headstrong --- the Three Dutch Governors of New Amsterdam; Being the Only Authentic History of the Times that Ever Hath Been or Ever Will Be Published by Diedrich Knickerbocker The whole Embellish'd by Eight Pictures from the Hand of Maxfield Parrish, Esqre. New York: R.H. Russell, 1900. Printed by D.B. Updike, The Merrymount Press, Boston (verso of title-page).Edition DeLuxe, one of 100 copies signed by the publisher. Folio (12 3/8 x 9 inches; 314 x 228 mm.). xxiv, 298, [1], [1 blank] pp. Title-page printed in red and black. Eight black and white plates in two states, with the proofs before letterpress printed on Japon Vellum. Publisher's DeLuxe presentation binding of full dark green morocco, spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt turn-ins, top edge gilt. Affixed to the front paste-down is the Publishers rectangular label printed in red "This edition is limited to / one hundred signed copies, / of which this is No. "26 / R. H. Russell". Spine slightly faded, slight offsetting from turn-ins onto endpapers. A fine copy."Parrish began a series of drawings in the spring of 1898 to illustrate the well-known book Knickerbocker's History of New York. A delightful parody on the history of colonial New York written by Washington Irving in 1809, Diedrich Knickerbocker's history was reprinted with Parrish's drawings in 1900 by R.H. Russell of New York. The artist worked the series into his schedule of commissions for magazine and poster designs, finishing the last of the nine drawings in September, 1899, a year and a half after the first one was begun.Parrish's visual interpretations of Washington Irving's Knickerbocker characters were as amusing as the text for which they were created. In depicting Oloffe Van Kortlandt's dream of the future New York (Oloffe, by selecting the site for New Amsterdam,became America's first great land speculator), Parrish set him against a turn-of-the-century Manhattan skyline. The portly little dreamer, perched in a treetop, reflects the burlesque humor of Irving's satirical history. Washington Irving characterized the American Indian as the innocent victim of the European settlers' greed, describing the Indian race as one which lived in harmony with its environment until "the benevolent inhabitants of Europe. [beheld] their sad condition. [and] immediately went to work to ameliorate and improve it. They introduced among them rum, gin, brandy, and the other comforts of life An Indian man, still reacting from the sting of a swallow of strong alcohol, appears somewhat uncertain about this gift from the white man in Parrish's illustration for this passage. The two-dimensional drawing, in ink, disregards linear perspective and, with the contrasting shading in lithographic crayon to give volume to the figure, creates an unusual juxtaposition of sizes and distances which adds significantly to the interest of the composition. The distant windmill is drawn with the same attention to minute detail as the demijohn sitting on the wall in the foreground. In both his drawings and his paintings the artist regularly exercised with great skill his preference for giving equal attention to details near and distant.

Largely unopened. Endpapers very slightly browned. Some occasional light foxing. Gilt very bright. About fine.ìProbably Conradís most popular and accessible work, the novel concerns a young Englishman who decides on a career at sea \'after a course of light holiday literature\'. However, the sea does not live up to his romantic expectations. The crisis comes when the Patna, with its 800 passengers, collides at sea, while Jim, the chief mate and officer on watch, had been day-dreaming about heroic adventures. Not only does Jim fail to live up to his own romantic self-image, he fails in his duty as an officer. In the second half of the novel he is given another chance and, in the romantic world of Patusan, he is allowed to realized his romantic expectations until the arrival of the piratical Gentleman Brown confronts him with a second crisis. Apart from its engagement with Conradian concerns of isolation, identity, betrayal, solidarity, and moral tests, the novel also marked a development in Conrad\'s narrative method both in its handling of narration and in its use of time-shiftî (The Oxford Companion to Twentieth-Century Literature in English).Keating 25.

        Horse Race Betting Tickets and Bag of a Reputed Felonious Bookmaker.

      [South Shields, England, circa 1900-1905].. Collection of approximately 300 original betting cards, produced and intended for soliciting bets, sixty years before gambling was made legal. Three complete of sets of illustrated printed betting tickets, 100, 200, and 500 numbered series, respectively, each measuring 95 x 50 mm. Featuring an engraved illustration of English jockey Frederick Archer, a famously daring and successful Victorian rider who won most or possibly all of the great English turf prizes and accumulated a large fortune. Tickets are printed in Leeds, with stamp in bottom margin reading J. Richardson, "Bookmaker's Outfitter," Sporteries Leeds. Contained in the shoulder bag Charles Drew, English bookmaker who was arrested for charges of illegally soliciting bets on at least one occasion in 1901. Leather shoulder bag measuring 340 x 240 mm, with original strap, working clasps, inner pockets, his name in gilt to one side. Very good condition.. Little is known of gambling bookie Charles Drew, but that his residence and business were based in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, in Northeast England, he married Ann Brown on 19 Jul 1852 at the South Shields St. Hilda parish church, and that he actively, illegally solicited gambling on streets by circulating betting cards for horse races. On 15 March 1901, the South Shields Daily Gazette reported on Drew's illegal activities: "At South Shields to-day, Charles Drew, bookmaker, was charged with betting East Street on Thursday last." Detective Sanderson and other officers deposed to the defendant being in the street taking bets in the usual way from 12 p.m. till 3 p.m. on the day named..." Several decades later, the gambling pastime which was already firmly entrenched in British culture would finally become a legal pastime. 1 September 1960, BBC: "... 1 January 1961 gambling for small sums will be legal for games of skill... betting shops will take gambling off the streets... At the moment, anyone who wants to place a bet on the horses has to demonstrate they have enough credit to set up an account with a bookmaker and do their dealings by telephone...."

        Philosophie des Geldes

      Leipzig: Duncker & Humblot,, 1900. Octavo (234 × 158 mm). Contemporary pebble grained caalf aand marbled boards, spine ruled and lettered gilt, marbled edges. Joints lightly rubbed, small ink splash to fore edge. A very good copy. First edition of Simmel&#39;s "seminal work" (Herbert Frankel in The New Palgrave). "Simmel&#39;s philosophy tried always to find in single appearances or instances of life, the meaning of the whole. As one of these he selected money. He saw it in functional relativistic terms: the symbol of the spirit, forms and thought of modern civilization. He viewed money not in mechanical terms but as a conflict between our abstract conceptions of money and the social trust on which it is based. He elucidated the moral basis of the monetary order and warned that it might be subverted through our tendency to think of money in purely abstract terms. If it was through John Maynard Keynes that the revolt against the predominant 19th-century view of money was made respectable, it was Simmel who had laid bare the causes of that revolt." (ibid.)

        Caricature of the Author Philip James Bailey (1816-1902)

      . Near Fine. N.d., circa 1900. The pen and ink ink drawing is 20 by 11.5 cm. Depicted is Philip James Bailey, who is carrying under his arms his 1839 magnum opus, the very long poem, "Festus", admired by Tennyson and other leading poets of the day, and supposedly an influence on James Joyce. The work was Bailey&#39;s only success, and he continued to add to it during his long life following its initial appearance. It is this pattern of accretions which Ford would appear to be lampooning in this caricature. Ford is best remembered today for illustrating the dozen Andrew Lang colored fairy book series, and next for illustrating works by Scott, Kipling and many others. He also did free-standing painting, and some of his work belongs now to museum collections. Matted.

      [Berlin. Luxus-Papier-Fabrik Adolf Sala, ohne Jahr (ca. 1900)].. Ca. 28 cm (Durchmesser der Trommeldeckels), 27,5 cm (Durchmesser der Trommel), ca. 11,5 cm (Trommelhöhe); ca. 5,3 x 86 cm (Motivstreifen).. Deckel der Bildertrommel mit farblithographierter Illustration und Titel "Lebensrad", links davon Nr. 4194, rechts Herstellermarke. Deckelinnenseite mit Aufkleber des Herstellers und Verkaufsaufkleber einer Hamburger Spielwarenhandlung. Das Zoetrop, auch Wundertrommel oder Zootrop genannt ist ein einfaches optisches Gerät, das auf mechanischem Wege bewegte Bilder erzeugt. Es ist damit ein Vorläufer der Kinematographie, die 1834 von dem Engländer William George Horner (1768-1837) erfunden wurde. Das Zoetrop besteht aus einer dunklen, oben offenen drehbaren Trommel, an deren Rand sich in regelmäßigen Abständen enge Schlitze befinden. An der Innenwand der Trommel liegt ein Papierstreifen mit gezeichneten Bewegungsphasen. Die Trommel wird in Drehung versetzt und der Betrachter blickt durch die vorbeiziehenden Schlitze auf den Papierstreifen, die Figuren auf den Motivstreifen scheinen sich zu bewegen. Kanten gering berieben, ansonsten bemerkenswert wohlerhaltenes Exemplar.

      Undated.Undated pen and ink drawing on paper circa 1900, image size approximately: 145 x 105 mm, 5½ x 4 inches. It depicts a little girl standing on a sandy shore in a long checked dress with a frill at the hem, wearing a straw hat, looking down at a beautiful dressed doll obviously left behind by some little rich girl. The caption, not visible on the image, is "One day she found a great treasure". Farmiloe has signed the bottom right corner "Edith Farmiloe". A charming image but we have failed to discover whether or not it was done for a children's book. Fine condition, in a cream mount, ready for framing. Edith Farmiloe (active 1893 - 1908), well known for her sympathetic and humorous drawings of slum children and ragamuffins, illustrated several of her own books plus a few Dumpy books and one for E.V. Lucas. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING. POSTAGE AT COST.
