        Black and white photographs of Mozambique c. 1900.

      - The city of Beira was developed by the Portuguese Mozambique Company, which was founded in 1891 as a royal company in this Portuguese colony. In Beira the Company ran the post office & public administration, and founded a bank, but took advantage of local conscripted labor. Beira also played an important role as a key port and railroad terminus for the British land locked territories of Zambesia, Southern Rhodesia and Nyasaland. The Beira Railway was formed in 1892; by 1890 Cecil Rhodes had already pushed into the region around Salisbury (Harare) and the settlers there were demanding dependable transport.These photographs date from the colonial period in which the Mozambique Company administered Beira. Photographs taken by C. E. Hogg. Thirteen b&w photographs, 4 3/4 x 3 3/4" with titles handwritten on the verso. The titles are as follows: 'Beira' (a view of the city taken from the Indian Ocean); 'a street in the native village', 'men gathering coconuts', 'mother and child', 'Mozambique natives, the elder age 12 + 2 years married, the younger a rescued slave child'; 'a rescued slave girl'; 'Mozambique' (no further title; photo is of sailboats pulled up on a beach); 'Mozambique' (no title; photo is city harbor, taken from the water looking toward the city); 'hotel proprietor, Beira'; 'Gardens, Mozambique'; 'Mozambique boys'; 'Market, Mozambique'; and 'Mozambique hospital'. A few marks at the corners of some photographs, where they were removed from an album; one photo with a diagonal tear ('Gardens'), o/w quite bright.

        ARBORETUM AMAZONICUM: Iconographia dos mais importantes vegetaies espontaneous e cultivados da regi?o Amazonica.

      Museo Paraense [Museo Goeldi], 1900-1906., Par? [Bel?m[: - [40] pp. First edition; stiff, manila, pictorial wrappers, printed black and white; spine unprinted; unbound sheets with text and 40 gravure black and white photographic plates with captions. Four 'decadas' complete; each with ten number plates, each plate with a single page of text in Portuguese, French, and German. Published by the Museu Paraense de Historia Natural e Ethnographia. The photographic plates are each numbered and printed on heavy card stock. They depict common varieties of trees, water plants, and low shrubs that are common to the region around what is today Bel?m and the island of Maraj? Some plates are sepia-tone, others various tones of black and white common to the period. The third and fourth decadas were published in 1906 and have "Museo Goeldi" on the head line. Huber was the director of the museum's botanical department. The work was printed in Zurich, Switzerland. There is no introduction present. Decada I and Decada II: the plates have no photographic credit (assumed to be by Huber); the text is in Portuguese and French by Huber. Decada III: has a selection of excerpts from botanical journals in French, German, and English. One in English from the Botanical Gazette, Jan. 1902 is the shortest (a paragraph) and states: ". . . each species is represented by at least a page of text. . . in parallel columns, and a plate. The plates are exceptionally fine, being heliotypes from remarkably good photographs. Many of the plants are represented in their natural setting, and the views of tropical plant formations are some of the finest seen. This series of illustrations is highly prized for its artistic and scientific excellence. In addition to illustrations of prominent genera, several plates represent characteristic plant societies, as a savanna and two illustrations of river borne vegetation. The composition of the plates range from OK to excellent?most are quite good. I.e., the photographer was able to give the reader an excellent idea of the overall shape, leaf design, bole, and character of the trees pictured. The two plates of victoria regia are only adequate whereas the hevea, palms, and castanha are excellent. It is interesting that the trees, all normally nearly impossible to differentiate when they are found in the rain forest, are photographed in isolation?as if they were somehow found without adjacent or contiguous growth?or the nearby trees had been cut down to isolate each of those photographed. Decada I wraps faded, spine chipped, corners chipped; Decada II wraps lightly soiled, spine, edges chipped; Decada III nearly fine; Decada IV wraps closed tears, surface loss; all excellent internally; see additional images provided.

        Favourite Flowers of Garden and Greenhouse Vols I-IV

      London and New York: FREDERICK WARNE & CO. LTD. Fair 4 volume set in plain cloth bindings, undated but probably early 1900's, with 316 high quality colour printed plates. Classed as 'fair' because of the binding but contents are very clean and in very good condition. Each volume with frontispiece and 78 colour plates; Vol IV with index, 691pp in all (consecutive numbering). The cloth bindings have fading to spines and boards. They are quite tight but a section in Vol IV is loosening at the bottom gather and the tightness is probably more due to lack of use than quality of binding. There is some reinforcement to the gutter of a couple of pages in Vol I; sellotape ends on the fep and a pencil signature to the reverse of the final page. Vol II has some repair to the half title page. Vol IV has a plate bound out of order but all are present. A nice clean set of an authoritative work.

        Caricature Self-Portrait "Little Breeches

      . Near Fine. N.d., circa 1900. The pen and ink, lightly tinted, drawing is 20 by 15 cm. It is an amusing self-portrait, all big blocky head, boots, and suspenders suspended over the artist's pate. Not really characteristic of this versatile artist's work, yet a splendid work of great economy and humor, somewhat in the vein of Edward Lear. 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.

        London to Ladysmith

      Toronto: The Copp, Clark Company, Ltd., 1900. First Canadian edition. Hardcover. Very good. This book is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is not only a very good copy of the Canadian first edition, but also of minor bibliographic note. Churchill's fourth published book, London to Ladysmith via Pretoria is the first of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. 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. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria contains 27 letters and telegrams to the Morning Post written between 26 October 1899 and 10 March 1900. It was published in England in mid-May 1900 and sold well. Churchill returned from South Africa in July 1900 and 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". Both U.S. and Canadian editions were published in June 1900. The Canadian is easily the scarcest of the three. This Canadian edition was bound in tan cloth with an illustrated front cover like its British counterpart, and is easily distinguishable by a red fleur-de-lis on the spine, thinner binding, and black title and author print. The attractive binding seems prone to both hinge breaks and severe spine toning. Here is a very good copy, better than most we see. The binding remains firm and tight. Moreover, the spine is only modestly toned compared to most copies we see, with the fleur-de-lis still bright and spine lettering quite clear. The binding has a forward lean and shows mild wear to the corners and spine ends, two small moisture stains on the lower front cover, and modest soiling to the rear cover. The contents show no spotting. Maps and plans are intact. The sole previous ownership mark is a beautifully inked previous owner name on the first free endpaper, faded with age and dated "27th June/1900". This is the earliest date known in a Canadian first edition and thus of bibliographic significance. When Ron published his excellent Bibliography in 2006, the earliest known inscription in a Canadian first edition was 28 June 1900. (See Cohen, Vol. I, A4.3.a, p.97) Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.3.a, Woods/ICS A4(bb), Langworth p.56.

        The Africa of Albert Schweitzer

      Essay by Albert Schweitzer. Small 4to. Light green cloth with dark green lettering and graphic, pictorial dust jacket. (Ca. 200pp). Frontispiece, numerous illustrations, map endpapers. Very good/good plus. Jacket edgeworn and a bit scuffed, with several small edge chips and large chip at top of rear panel. A tight and attractive early printing of this (to cite jacket panel) "first ever [documentary] made in Africa of the philosopher-theologian-musician-physician... a final record of this extraordinary man's work...." -- but a unique association copy, for the half-title page bears Schweitzer's usual fine miniscule signature in black ink, which he dates "11.7.49," and below this a fine presentation inscription in red ink: "Myrtle Dean Clark / to / Governor Stevenson." Clark was a noted Chicago socialite and civic leader, and Adlai E. Stevenson II (1900-65) was the Illinois governor and twice presidential candidate who made a well-publicized tour of Africa in the 1950s that included a visit to Schweitzer. An outstanding association copy.

        "Pferde 2".

      . Linolschnitt, aquarelliert, auf chamoisfarbenem Japan, betitelt und als "Probe Druck I" bezeichnet. Ca. 28:30 cm. Rundum ungleich beschnitten. Insgesamt unfrisch. Zirkusthemen bilden ein Hauptmotiv im Schaffen der Künstlerin.. Die Malerin und Graphikerin entstammte einer großbürgerlichen Familie und konnte sich von dieser unterstützt der künstlerischen Laufbahn widmen. Um 1900 begann sie mit dem Studium in München bei K. Becker-Gundahl (1856-1925), dann erlernte sie als Schülerin von M. Feldbauer (1869-1948) im Sommer in Dachau an der Malschule die Landschaftsmalerei und im Winter in München an der Damenakademie des Münchner Künstlerinnenvereins die Aktmalerei. Gemeinsam mit Feldbauer unternahm sie eine Studienreise nach Griesbach/Niederbayern und in die Bretagne. Weitere Studienaufenthalte folgten nach Rom und Florenz und um 1911 ein mehrmonatiger Aufenthalt in Paris an der Ecole Ranson. Vor 1914 lebte sie in Berlin, wo sie die Unterstützung v.a. durch den Kunstkritiker P. Westheim fand. Ab 1915 wohnte sie in Dachau, wo sie in den Sommermonaten die Malschule von A. Hölzel (1853-1934) besuchte; sie zählte neben Ida Kerkovius (1879-1970), Maria Langer-Schöller (1878-1969) und Else von Freytag-Lovinghoven (1874-1927) u.a. zu den sog. "Malweibern". Sie war Mitglied der "Künstlergruppe Dachau", der "Kunstvereinigung Dachau" und der Münchner "Neuen Sezession". Erfolgreich beteiligte sie sich an Ausstellungen in München, Rom, Wien, Berlin, Paris, Stuttgart und Salzburg. 1919 erhielt sie die Silb. Staatsmedaille der Stadt Salzburg. Freundschaft unterhielt sie mit A. Kubin (1877-1959) und Else Lasker-Schüler (1869-1945). 1933 wurde sie als "entartet" diffamiert, infolge wandte sie sich einem naiven Malstil und unverfänglichen Bildthemen zu.

        Dans le Tas

      Paris: Tolmer. First Edition. Wood on boards. Folio.. Very Good. Broad and colorful caricatures of the theatrical demimonde of Belle Epoque Paris, circa 1900. Scarce, with only two copies located on OCLC FirstServe. (Bibliotheque National de France, U. of Rochester.) 34 by 24 cm. 23 leaves of illustration, with 20 color plates, of which three are double paged, plus two pages of text by Wolff. The caricatures are of theatrical personalities of the day, including performers, composers, and most famously to us now, Willy and Colette. The unifying theme would appear to be that they were all patrons or habitues of the restaurant, Au Restaurant de la Madeleine. Some of the people depicted are identified, such as the musicians Ernest Depre, Willy Redstone and Fragson; the actor and writer George Grossmith, the playwright Paul Ardot. Others were surely well-known in their day but obscure now. As with all well-done caricature, though, knowing the subject's identity is not really critical to delighting in the image. In this folio, the sequence of images, among other things, transports us back to a certain time and setting with the alacrity commensurate with the artist's sure and economic brush. Indeed, from an artistic perspective, Rip, the artist, discards all the fussiness that entered into much other caricature up to then and in his day. Dating, surely between 1900 and 1910, and probably towards the earlier end of that decade, is based on the fact Willy and Colette divorced in 1906, among other things. Soiling to the boards. Ribbon ties are gone. Tear to folio's paper spine -- the boards are not attached to anything either. Plates are clean.

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

      - 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'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.

        Feste Des Lebens Und Der Kunst, Eine Betrachtung Des Theaters Als Hochsten Kultursymbols ( Festival of Life and Art: a Consideration of Theater as the Highes Cultural Symbol

      Leipzig: Eugen Diederichs, 1900. Large 8vo, thick gray wrappers with title printed in black, flanked with design of gilt flames rising from urns. Slight stain on back cover else fine. Decorative frontispiece with a pair of caryatids bearing faceted crystals, title page, two borders and initial by Behrens. Printed in pale blue, crimson and brown on cream paper. Dedicated to the Kunstler-Kolonie, an artists' colony at Mathildenhohe near Darmstadt founded by Grand Duke Ludwig of Hesse, which Behrens joined in 1899. He was a pioneer of 20th century architecture, an industrial designer, and in his earlier career a graphic artist and designer of jewelry, porcelain and furniture. This work is a Jugendstil theater manifesto heralding the advent of the new decorative style and its relation to the theater. It is a critique of the naturalist/realist theater style of the 19th century stage and its illustion of a fixed, single point perspective. Behrens believed that a dynamic theater space should overcome the rigid distinction between actor and audience and sublimate art and culture over raw nature. Building on Wagner's notion of the total work of art (Gesamtkunstwerk), the new theater was to combine all the arts under a single roof, dominated by beautiful speech and movement, elevating art into life. Aynsley, Graphic Design in Germany, page 61:"(Behrens) gave equal consideration to typographic composition, letter initials and illustrations, as well as paper quality and binding." Harvard, Turn of a Century, 108: "Characteristic of Behrens and the Germans is the geometric control of the design with the repetitive curvilinear forms subordinated to a strict framework.". Printed and Pictorial Wrappers. Fine. Illus. by Peter Behrens. Large 8vo.
