An additional nineteen chromolithographs illustrate bread in its many international forms, "the bakery world") tipped onto printed pages. Additional illustrations in the text. Also included is a two-page set of color samples, indicating the color of different grades of flours, and the qualities of each. A substantial professional, technical journal of the English commercial bread industry. The first and only volume issued. Blandy was the author of The Bakers' Guide and Cooks' Assistant to the Art of Bread-making, etc., a smaller guide to the same subject, which was issued in 1886, as well as, The Baker's Catechism, and Bakery Economics. A full page ad for the author states that he was a "Certified Teacher of Breadmaking, Founder and past principal of the Borough Polytechnic School for Bread and Confectionery Making, Holder of City and London Guild Honors' Diploma for Breadmaking… Consulting Expert, etc." Some of his consulting activities included flour testing, yeast testing, supplying formulae, examining single loaves, and general consultations. The ads, some printed in rich chromolithographed color, are a fascinating look into various elements of the commercial bread-baking industry in England at the turn of the twentieth century, and include ads for a number of other professional baking periodicals, including, The Practical Confectioner & Baker, The Confectioner's Union, Milling, The British Baker, The Miller, The Baker & Confectioner, and Baker's Helper Chicago. Other ads are for flour millers, suppliers of yeast, wheatmeal, cocoa, eggs, bakery utensils, ovens and machinery.

        Indian Territory: Descriptive, Biographical, and Genealogical including the landed estates, county seats, etc., etc., with a general history of the territory.

      New York and Chicago: Lewis Publishing Company, 1901. - 4to., (10 5/8 x 8 3/8 inches). 100 photogravure plates, numerous in-text illustrations. Professionally rebound in full morocco, preserving the cover panels and portion of the original spine, decorated in blind, all edges gilt, the spine in 5 compartments separated by four raised bands, gilt lettered in two (small chip to front cover, rear cover slightly rubbed). Provenance: Ink stamps of "Thos. J. Harrison Private Library, Pryor, Oklahoma" on title page and p. 3. First edition. Attributed to D. C. Gideon, whose autobiography and photograph appear on pp. 312-313. A physician from Illinois, Gideon abandoned his medical practice and eventually immigrated to Indian Territory around 1890, where he again became a doctor, setting aside his intervening career as a journalist. In yet another twist he went back to journalism before stopping that work "in 1900 to accept the position of general and local historian for this history. His work in this line being ended, his time will hereafter be devoted to his ranch and stock in Blue county, Choctaw nation" (p. 313). Although originally married to Sarah Row, he later remarried a Choctaw woman named Nellie J. Landers. This volume is a cornerstone of historical, anthropological, social, and genealogical research for the Indian Territory shortly before it was subsumed in 1907 by Oklahoma statehood. There are numerous biographical entries, and it "has a long section on all the outlaws of the Indian Territory, including the Dalton gang and Cook gang" (Adams). This section of "Territory Outlaws" includes a biography of Bass Reeves (1824-1910), the first African American to be commissioned U.S. deputy marshal west of the Mississippi River. Born to slave parents in Paris, Texas, Reeves's career exemplifies the role that African Americans played in westward expansion, which is often overlooked. Reeves's own account of his capture and shooting of rancher Jim Webb in 1895 appears on pp. 115-118. The author's stance on Native Americans may be inferred by the statement in the section entitled "Indians Becoming Extinct": "Never in the history of the world has the extermination of a people been so complete as that of the American Indian during the past two hundred years. At first they were estimated at several millions; now only a few thousand are left, and they are being so systematically reduced by the white man's vices that another century will mark the last of their race" (pp. 7-8). Though this book records (and mourns) a fading way of life, it also clearly anticipates a growing region on the cusp of statehood. Adams, Guns 1107.

Auch andere Landeswappen stammen von seiner Hand z.B. Oberschlesien. Eine weitere heraldische Publikation Otto Hupps waren die Münchner Kalender, von denen 51 Ausgaben in den Jahren 1885-1936 (mit Ausnahme von 1933) erschienen. Die Kalender der Jahre 1885 bis 1894 zeigten Monatswappen mit den Tierkreiszeichen. Ab 1895 konnte sich Otto Hupp mit seiner Idee durchsetzen, anstatt der \"abgenutzten Monatszeichen\" Wappen der deutschen Fürstenhäuser und in der Folge alljährlich ein doppelblattgroßes Wappen eines deutschen Staates und anschließend jeweils zwölf Wappen großer Adelsgeschlechter zu bringen.

        The History of Helyas Knight of the Swan. Translated by Robert Copland from the French version

      New York: The Grolier Club, 1901 Limited edition of three hundred and twenty-five copies, three of which are on vellum. Full pigskin branded with the device of Wynken de Worde and mounted with brass clasps. Three paneled spine with tooled floral motifs Binding extremities lightly rubbed, pages untrimmed. Small quarto. Engraved illustrations (one is in black and red) and initial letters are facsimiles of the originals on wood and the text is printed from type made especially for this purpose by Sir Charles Reed's Sons in London, modeled upon the original fonts of Wynkin7. Title page printed in black and red. The book is printed on Whatman paper with ample margins of the same size (as can be estimated) as that of the original. Prospectus included; it is worth noting that prospectus states the book came with a leather slipcase, though this copy, like most others, does not have one. A remarkably fine copy. The History of the Knight of the Swan is a medieval tale about a mysterious rescuer who comes in a swan-drawn boat to defend a damsel, his only condition being that he must never be asked his name. The earliest versions do not provide specific identity to this knight, but the Old French Crusade cycle of chansons de geste adopted it to make the Swan Knight (Le Chevalier au Cigne, first version around 1192) the legendary ancestor of Godfrey of Bouillon.

        20 Letters reporting events at Ladysmith, the Transvaal, Bloemfontein and elsewhere

      VP including Ladysmith, Geluk Farm, Vluchfontein et al., 1901. Nine ALS, three TLS, eight carbons. 64 pp in total. Folio & 4to. Very good, some tiny chips to carbons and one two spots of minor dampstaining not affecting legibility. Nine ALS, three TLS, eight carbons. 64 pp in total. Folio & 4to. FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT OF THE SIEGE OF LADYSMITH. A fine group of letters by an English intelligence officer steadily rising through the ranks. In 1899 he is "sleep[ing] in the open air, only one blanket & one waterproof sheet." Within a year he was Lord Roberts' private clerk and in December 1900 he is stationed at the Commander-in-Chief's Office (Kitchener's) doing "confidential military work for the Military Secretary to Lord Kitchener." Although part of the intelligence service, Carter saw more than his share of fighting. He describes the march to Ladysmith, and the action at Elands Laagte Station, noting "a bullet going through the top of my helmet and cutting off some of my hair but without even scratching the skin." The next four letters were written from Ladysmith and provide a full account of the siege. "The Boers had big siege guns mounted on the hills around Ladysmith which quite outclassed our light field guns ... [They'd] completely invested Ladysmith & cut the telegraph lines & pulled up the Railway ... Then began the long dreary siege..." Carter reports using "a lot of pigeons" and the cost of Kaffir and Zulu runners, to get letters out of Ladysmith and at least one of his letters (not here) was published in the Hamilton Spectator. The siege is depicted much like a holiday camp, citing football matches, swimming races, water polo, cricket. "We got so indifferent to the Boer 'snipers' that you would see most of our chaps having an afternoon siesta behind their trenches while bullets would be chipping the stones around them. We also used to organise pools, when we could see some of the Boers, and have a long range shooting match, the man who bowled the first Boer over taking the pool." Yet there is also much on troops movements, information on the Boers, the conditions of Ladysmith, accounts of engaging the enemy, and reflections on the experience of combat: "the actual fighting is all right as the excitement deadens your faculties, but after a battle when ... you see your poor companions who a few hours before were joking with you, lying dead or else writhing in the agonies of pain caused by frightful wounds, then you feel your courage leaving you and your nerves getting like wax." The remaining correspondence includes three letters as Carter's regiment treks across the Transvaal through August and September 1900. These too are full of detail of life in the field, bivouacking scouting enemy positions and action: "There was a grand opportunity for our Field Artillery. They simply pumped shrapnel into them, the Artillery Officers going mad at the sight, and shrieking to the gunners 'fire! fire! hurry up you b----- fools, you never had such a chance, fire!' ... You could see at every discharge of the guns, the Boers falling, and at the same time our splendid Infantry running for all they were worth trying to get at them with the bayonet ... [I]t is very seldom the Boers leave any wounded or dead behind them and it proves how hard we pressed them ... It was like a shambles ... one, two or more bodies, horribly mutilated by the effects of the Lyddite." The final group commences with Carter being stationed at the Commander-in-Chief's office and he wastes no opportunity to use the special mail service for his own correspondence. He describes Kitchener at work and provides insight to life in the office. Yet beneath this is a yearning for the war to end and a frustration that it can't be done in one swift battle: "We cannot get a good fight out of the beggars they simply have a few shots at us and as soon as we get near enough to do some damage, off they go helter-skelter." This group were all addressed to Carter's long time friend we know only by the name of Jose. Given the warmth and detail included here, it's possible that he was using these letters as a substitute for a diary. Carter served with some distinction in 1st Manchester Regiment and was mentioned in the despatches.

        Little Lord Fauntleroy].

      Volf Moskva 1901 - Octavo. X, incl. half-title, full-page frontispiece and title page, 219 pp., incl. some full-page illustrations, table of content and one leaf of ads; pencil note to verso of half-title. Publisher's red cloth heavily decorated in gilt and black, all edges gilt; upper fly-leaf defective. Lovely Russian edition of this celebrated children's book that tells a story of a little American boy, who discovers to be a heir to an English aristocratic title and a fortune. The striking publisher's binding here in an unusually bright condition. Little Lord Fauntleroy was the first children's novel of English playwright and author Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924). It was first published in book format in original English in 1886 following the serialisation in St. Nicholas magazine. Its popularity was enormous. Polly Horvath, an American-Canadian author of novels for children, wrote that Little Lord Fauntleroy "was the Harry Potter of his time and Frances Hodgson Burnett was as celebrated for creating him as J.K. Rowling is for Potter." There is little doubt that in Russia the novel was also received with great enthusiasm, as before 1918 it underwent at least 13 editions. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Dictionnaire d'Argot. Argot-français, français-argot.

      Société d'éditions littéraires et artistiques, Librairie Paul Ollendorff, Paris 1901 - In-12 de (4)-XI-(1)-174-(2) pp., demi-percaline verte, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, couverture illustrée conservée (reliure de l'époque). Exemplaire offert à Aristide Bruant. Envoi autographe signé de l'auteur à Aristide Bruant : A mon ami Aristide Bruant, Rossignol . Une curieuse lettre autographe de Gustave Rossignol adressée au même est jointe, dans laquelle il livre à son destinataire le mode d'emploi de l'encre sympathique qu'il a découverte dans le cadre de ses fonctions d'inspecteur principal de la Sûreté. Voici le texte de sa correspondance à l'encre brune : Nogent-sur-Marne 1/2 1901. Mon cher Bruant, merci de m'avoir envoyé ton dictionnaire auquel je me suis permis d'ajouter quelques mots au crayon que certainement tu connais mais que tu as dû oublier, s'ils peuvent être utiles pour ton dictionnaire argot-français je t'en donnerai la liste. Lorsque tu auras lu cette lettre tu la couvriras d'encre et y jeteras ensuite de l'eau dessus pour faire disparaître le plus possible l'encre dont elle aura été enduite, tu verras alors entre les lignes une façon d'écrire que tu ne connais peut-être pas. En donner l'explication au mot Broder dans ton dictionnaire argot français serait peut être intéressant. A toi cordialement Rossignol. Et le texte à l'encre sympathique placé en interligne : Mon cher Aristide. Ces lignes sont écrites à l'aide d'une plume neuve et de salive. J'ai découvert cette façon d'écrire il y a une quinzaine d'années. Un détenu écrivait de la sorte à un complice du dehors. La salive sèche et devient invisible pour le greffier chargé de lire la correspondance des détenus et y mettre son visa avant que la lettre soit mise à la poste. Bien à toi Rossignol. Edition originale. Couverture illustrée par Weber tirée en noir et rouge. Entre les deux dictionnaires, l'auteur a placé Quelques spécimens de poésies des habitués des prisons. Yve-Plessis, 328.

Der Empfänger möge sich bitte von den einfachen Lebensumständen eines alten Witwers ohne Freunde und Protektion nicht täuschen lassen; er sei in der Lage, sein Versprechen zu halten, denn er sei ja Hausbesitzer in Smíchov in der Jeronýmova úlice Nr. 11 und überdies bereit, das Honorar in der Höhe von 200 Kronen oder mehr zur Disposition zu stellen. Sollte auf dem Protektionsweg (also über die Besprechung mit Kapellmeister Bloch) nichts erfolgen, dann werde sich Jerábek nach Ablauf einer Woche mit seiner Oper direkt an die Direktion des Deutschen Theaters oder auch an ein Haus in Deutschland wenden, um nicht wieder ein Jahr zu verlieren. Er bitte dann nur, der Empfänger möge der Direktion gegenüber das mündlich ausgesprochene Urteil über das Werk wiederholen. - Minimal angestaubt.

        Buddenbrooks. Verfall einer Familie. Roman. Erster und zweiter Band.

      Fischer,, Berlin, 1901 - 2 Bde. Berlin, Fischer, 1901. 8°. 566, 539 S. OLwd. EA. WG II 3. Potempa D 1. - Priv. Widm. u. Besitzsign. a. V., geringfügig berieben. - Sehr schöne Exemplare! - Mann (1875 - 1955): Die Herkunft aus dem Patriziat der Stadtrepublik Lübeck -- der Vater war Finanzsenator und Inhaber einer traditionsreichen Getreidefirma -- prägten M. nachhaltig. Sein Habitus war stets der eines gepflegten Bürgers, obgleich er seine künstlerischen Neigungen und ihre Verankerung in der Philosophie Arthur Schopenhauers und Friedrich Nietzsches sowie in der Musik Richard Wagners als antibürgerlich empfand. Nach dem unerwartet frühen Tod des Vaters (1891) blieb er zunächst als verbummelter Gymnasiast in Lübeck und folgte 1894, ohne Abitur, der Mutter nach München, wo er in den Kreisen der Schwabinger Künstlerboheme verkehrte und bald mit einer Erzählung an die Öffentlichkeit trat (Gefallen, 1894). Den künstlerischen Durchbruch brachte Der kleine Herr Friedemann (1897). Zahlreiche weitere Erzählungen folgten in den Jahren um die Jahrhundertwende. Mehrere Italienreisen, zeitweise zusammen mit dem älteren, als Schriftsteller bereits nicht mehr unbekannten Bruder Heinrich, bildeten den entstehungsgeschichtlichen Hintergrund des Romans Buddenbrooks (erschienen 1901), der den programmatischen Untertitel Verfall einer Familie trug und die Geschichte der eigenen Familie als Material für eine große Dekadenzanalyse verwendete. Mit dem rasanten Erfolg von Buddenbrooks seit der zweiten Auflage von 1903 kamen Wohlstand und Ruhm . Neben zahlreichen publizistischen Beiträgen zum ersten Weltkrieg schrieb er damals sein theoretisches Hauptwerk, die Betrachtungen eines Unpolitischen (1918), eine umfangreiche Rechtfertigung seines Lebens und Schaffens. Dieses bis heute umstrittene Buch ließ ihn in der Nachkriegszeit zunächst als Anhänger der antidemokratischen "konservativen Revolution" erscheinen. Nach allerlei gedanklichen Experimenten und mehrjähriger Unsicherheit bekannte er sich in einer aufsehenerregenden Kehrtwendung 1922 zur Weimarer Republik. Er versöhnte sich mit dem Bruder Heinrich und engagierte sich in den Jahren vor 1933 in zahlreichen Reden und Stellungnahmen publizistisch für die Sozialdemokraten, gegen die Deutschnationalen und die Nationalsozialisten. Es waren die Jahre seiner größten öffentlichen Wirkung. 1924 erschien der große Zeitroman Der Zauberberg und wurde ein internationaler Erfolg. Eine Paris-Reise im Jahr 1926 zeigte Mann als Botschafter einer Politik der Aussöhnung mit Frankreich. Das Jahr 1929 brachte den Nobelpreis. (DBE) Deutsch [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        La photographie des objets immergés

      [190 - in-4 de 228, (4), 8 pp., 8 Paris, Charles Mendel éditeur, [1901], , in-4 de 228, (4), 8 pp, 8 épreuves au gélatino-bromure d'argent contrecollées, demi chagrin brun moderne, Rarissime ouvrage écrit par Adolphe-Louis Donnadieu (1840-1911), célèbre référence dans le domaine de la photographie, notamment grâce au développement d'un instrument baptisé "physiographe", destiné à la prise de vue de préparations microscopiques en milieu aqueux (cf. La Photographie appliqué aux sciences biologiques et le physiographe universel, Lyon, 1884 ; Denis Canguilhem, Le Merveilleux scientifique. Photographies du monde savant en France, 1844-1918, Paris, Gallimard, 2004). Professeur à la faculté catholique des sciences de Lyon et photographe expérimenté, le chercheur n'écarte aucunement la photographie en tant qu'instrument de la recherche scientifique. La photographie des objets immergés commence avec une drôle d'anecdote où l'auteur nous explique l’exigence de cette application spéciale du médium : "En l'année 1880 j'avais entrepris, l’exécution d'un Atlas d'anatomie comparée [.] J'avais fait appel à un peintre [.] je disséquais sous l'eau [.] dans l'eau les couleurs disparaissent assez rapidement [.]. Mon peintre se plaignait beaucoup de la difficulté qu'il éprouvait à retrouver « ses couleurs » lors qu'il avait dû employer les premiers heures à fixer le dessin. [.] et j'étais condamné à entendre l'artiste répéter tous les jours : « Vous qui faites tant de photographie essayez donc d'en faire dans ces conditions-là »". Le texte est riche en illustrations représentant le procédé d'immersion, les matériaux utilisés et les nouvelles modifications apportées au physiographe pour le rendre plus performant. L'auteur nous guide dans ce voyage expérimental, agrémenté de nombreuses références historiques et techniques sur la photographie classique "à sec", afin nous aider à mieux comprendre l'importance et la supériorité incontestable de la photographie "dans l'eau", tout en restant conscient qu'il faut bien vérifier que l'objet se prête à l'immersion. En outre cet ouvrage contient 8 photographies originales d' animaux disséqués "à sec" et "dans l'eau" (lapin, vipère, seiche, lézard, poule, tortue). Un extrait du catalogue de l'éditeur Charles Mendel est relié in fine, avec quatrième de couverture conservée. Bel exemplaire, en partie non découpé, tirages de très belle qualité.
