        Two Letters from Hong Kong, 1900.

      Ink manuscript fill fourteen sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. About 4000 words. Kathryn writes to her friend Jessie in Oregon, describing her daily routine and life in Hong Kong with her husband Tom, who works there. "Hong Kong is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I cannot describe it to you but will send you some Kodak pictures (Wish we had those!)" Her writing is rather slangy and telegraphic, but she manages to convey a sense of her life and times. "We have a rickshaw of our own now, Tom bought it last week. It is a nice one, made in Japan, and better than the ones they make here. Have two coolies so they can drag Tom up the hill. One runs behind and pushes. A tailor is making their uniforms. I chose kahki (sic) trimmed with red for them. Will also have the monogram TWH in red letters on them. People here think you are somebody if your coolies are in uniform." She goes on at length in this manner, explaining that the chair coolies (necessary to negotiate the many steps in Hong Kong) do not like Tom because he weighs 200 pounds. She, on the other hand, goes where she pleases. She discusses her wardrobe (all white clothing) and talks about clothing and Chinese tailors, and about friends of her husband's - other expats. She describes their rooms, a bargain at $160 per month. Then, "Although the Plague is usually worse here in summer it seems now that there are fewer cases than there were a few weeks ago... I go through the Plague district (that is, where it is the worst) Wauchai, a suburb, nearly every day." She also talks about ships currently in the harbor, "trouble in the north" and the Hong Kong regiment. We gather that she's been married just a year, and that her husband pampers her, but that she misses her friend Jessie and is a little homesick. The first twelve-page letter was written between June 19 and 25. The second, a two pager sending condolences for a death in Jessie's family, was written August 27, 1900. Clean and legible

      The Century Co. (1900) [ca. 1927], New York - Near fine in a very good-plus jacket. 8vo. Blue cloth boards with green and navy blue ink illustrations and lettering to front, spine. In original illustrated dust jacket. Unclipped. Jacket lightly toned at spine and corners of interior flaps, small chips from spine ends. Interior endpapers with toning at corners corresponding with jacket flaps. Overall a sound, clean, and bright copy, unmarked, in an attractive, well preserved dust jacket. A lovely copy of this high point in nautical literature. Slocum's first-person account of the first solo circumnavigation of the globe. Though the copyright page provides dates of 1899 and 1900, the publisher's list to the rear jacket panel lists ten titles, each printed in 1927, and the volume's size is slightly smaller than the first Century printing (7.5" x 4.75" approximately). Likely a ca.1927 printing, thus. Given the copyright date of 1900, later printings are often erroneously described and offered as the first edition. Still, an early and handsome copy of this classic narrative. Scarce in jacket. 294pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Map D. - North London (1900).

      1900 - London, 1900. Lithographic map with original hand colour, backed on cloth. Sheet 385 x 435mm. One section (of twenty) of an extended version of the incredibly influential Poverty Map, originally published in Charles Booth's 'Life and Labour of the People in London', a founding text of British sociology. Showing Barnsbury, Kentish Town, Kings Cross, Camden Town, Hoxton, Highbury, Holloway, and Tufnell Park. Booth (1840-1916), owner of the Booth Shipping Line, acted in response to an 1886 Pall Mall Gazette article that claimed that 25% of Londoners lived in poverty. Booth regarded this figure as wildly exaggerated, so recruited a team of volunteer researchers to compile an analysis of social conditions based on field visits and interviews with local police, clergy and employers. The first volume of 'Life and Labour' (1889), covering the East End, showed that 35% lived in poverty. The second series, covering the rest of the city (1891) showed that no less than 30 per cent of the city's total population could be classed as poor. See HYDE: Victorian Maps of London, 252.

        The Life and Works.

      Philadelphia: George Barrie & Son,, 1900. Including the Analysis of Beauty and Five Day's Peregrination. Edited from the texts by John Nichols, George Steevens, and Samuel Ireland, with a new critical introduction by John LaFarge, and a chronological catalogue raisonne by Austin Dobson. The steel and copper plate impressions are from the engravings by Armstrong, Cook, Engleheart, Holl, Mottroam, Radclyffe, Romney, etc. 10 volumes, octavo (245 x 170 mm). Publisher's presentation binding of brown crushed morocco, spine in compartments with raised bands, titles gilt, and white and brown rosette onlays, full morocco doublures decorated in gilt and multicoloured onlay, brown silk moiré endpapers, edges gilt. Housed in custom brown cloth slipcases. Text printed in red and black, frontispieces and 167 engravings, each in three states (india paper; japon; papier de chine) including 21 double-page spreads, an additional 6 sepia plates on papier de chine in vol. 8, all with tissue-guards, some captioned, with black and white illustrations to text. Slight rubbing to slipcase extremities; an excellent set. The Commemorative edition, number ten of ten copies printed and specially bound by the publishers, this set produced for Alice S. Timayenis with her name printed on the limitation page in each volume and signed by Barrie on a tipped-in leaf at the front of volume I; with the plates in three states, printed on "India paper, Japanese vellum, and papier de Chine". Alice Timayenis was the wife of Greek consul Demosthenes Timayenis. By 1921 she was heavily in debt and all her assets were sold at auction. A limited edition of 1,000 copies was issued by Barrie at the same time with the plates printed solely on India paper; Barrie, like a number of publishers of that era, specialised in lavish editions of eighteenth century works. An extract from "Modern Bookbinding Practically Considered" entitled "How to open a new book" is laid into volumes 1, 2, 8 and 9. An uncommon work, with only two other copies of the commemorative edition traced at auction.

SIGNED and dated in the plate "Herbert Bayer, 39." Fine condition. Herbert Bayer was born in Austria in 1900. He attended the Bauhaus, first as a student, and then was appointed as an instructor of typography. He emigrated to the United States in 1939, and enjoyed a long and prosperous career. He was an accomplished architect, graphic designer, typographer, painter and photographer. A master of the photomontage, his combined use of graphic clarity and spatial ambiguity is closely associated with the surrealists. His lifelong interest in the human body and specifically, the eye as a scientific instrument, is typified in this graphic presentation. This illustration was a commission for LIFE MAGAZINE, and appeared December, 18, 1939, in a reduced size.

Das Präparieren von Fröschen ist ein komplizierter Vorgang und war im ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert in England sehr in Mode. Begeisterte Anhänger, Frösche so zu präparieren, daß sie absurd anmutende menschliche Situationen darstellen, waren u.a. Charles Darwin und Queen Victoria. Bizarre frog taxidermy. 4 stuffed dancing frogs, two with a hockey stick mounted on a woodblock. The amphibians have been preserved through taxidermy and then posed in the human scenario of a hockeygame. Taxidermy became a big trend in the late 19th century and was particularly popular in Britain. Charles Darwin and Queen Victoria were known to be fans. Amphibian taxidermy is considered to be extremely difficult and even today's practitioners tend not to attempt work on the slimy creatures.

      Original ink drawing and pencil sketch overleaf. Signature stamp of the artist's signature in the lower right corner of the work, and signature stamp of the workshop at the back. This drawing is part of a series of ten studies for Bertin to 1920-1925. A small asymmetric lack of origin, otherwise very good condition. Provenance: the artist's studio, referenced to catalog Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant-garde artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With Émile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893, Louis Anquetin continues to explore new opportunities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, after a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias pictorial that will line the general art movement, and take away from his friends. Dazzled by the baroque art and its creative force, so he thinks his childhood friends were involved in a pathway leading to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" which is embodied in the re-remember the lessons of Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more conventional, he advocated a return to business by offering to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art in accordance with the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin turns prolific with its many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression" compulsory foundation of all arts plastics. Working voluntarily countdown of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his obstinacy and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely closed the way to the great Western tradition.

        The Winning of the West. Daniel Boone Edition with Roosevelt manuscript. Four volume set.

      Four volume set; 5 folding maps, 102 plates. Here, #2 of only 200 sets in the original grained green morocco which has reverted to brown at the spines; floral gilt corner devices, raised bands, gilt titled spine. Top edge gilt; others deckled. Ruled & floriated dentelles; remarkably preserved red suede end & fly sheets. One page folded legal leaf in Roosevelt's hand mounted following colophon reveals his editing wasn't reflective but done as he wrote (lined through words here bracketed): "The attitude of the British gradually changed from one of passive to active hostility. In 1792 and '93 they still (united) [to keep] the Indians to make [at] peace with the Americans, provided always there were no such concessions made to the latter as would endanger the British control of the fur trade. But by the beginning of 1794 the relations between the Great Britain and the United States had become so strained that open war was threatened; for the advisors of the king, relying on the weakness of the young Federal Republic had begun to adopt towards it that tone of brutal insolence, which [backed by] reflected well the general attitude of the British people toward all Americans, and which finally brought on the second war between the two nations. The British officials in Canada were quick to reflect the tone of the home government, and, as always in such cases, [some of them] the more zealous and belligerent went a little farther than they were authorized. On February 10th Lord Dorchester, Governor of Canada, in an address of welcome to some of the chiefs from the tribes of the north and west, said speaking of the boundary, [speaking of children, since my return, I find no appearance of a line] "Children since my return I find no appearance of a line remains; and the manner in which the people of the United States push on and act and talk [on this]....I shall not be xxx surprised if we are at war with them in the course of the present year; and if so a line must then be drawn by the warriors....we have acted in the most peaceable manner and borne the language and conduct of the people if the United States with patience; but I believe our patience is almost exhausted." (1) [At the Nor that] Of course such a speech, delivered to such an audience, was [merely incitement to war a direct] more than a mere incitement to war; it was a direct appeal to arms. [P] Nor did the [incitement] encouragement given the Indians end with words; for [Simcoe] in April, Simcoe, [who was in command in upper Canada, went to] the lieutenant-governor, himself built a fort at the Miami rapids, in the very heart of the hostile.... (1). Rives' Life and Times of James Madison, III, 418. A verified copy of the speech, from the archives of the London Foreign Office. The authenticity of the speech was admitted at the time by the British minister; yet, extraordinary to say, not only British, but American historians, had spoken of it as spurious."
