Printed dark grey stiff-stock paper wrappers, stapled.. Wrappers soiled. A Very Good copy.. Genthe, born in Berlin, emigrated to San Francisco in 1895, where he taught himself the art of photography.

Rockefeller, Greta Garbo & Isadora Duncan. In this article, written very early in Genthe's career, he presciently declares his admiration for the new camera equipment, which allows for "an unstudied pose and a natural expression..." Further, he herein likens photography to art, where the photographer should strive for "the approval of the painter and sculptor.." A rare item documenting the artistic philosophy of an acknowledged early 20th C. virtuoso of the photograph. . 20 b/w reproduced photographic images.

        [Photo Album]: Travels to Northern Africa, India, Turkey, Persia, Russia (Azerbaijan), Tunis, Greece, and Western Europe

      Oblong quarto. Red half calf and cloth with "Photographs" in gilt on the front board. Erosion of the calf, which is a bit powdery, else sound and very good. A collection of 356 good quality photographs of turn-of-the-century foreign travels. The majority are 3" x 2.25" silver gelatin prints, with a substantial number of prints that are a bit larger, including a few cyanotypes. Condition of the photographs is mostly near fine. Most have been captioned, either in pencil beneath the mount, or on the negative. Most bear the date 1901, a few 1902. The unidentified photographer was an exhaustive shutterbug, and it seems that little that he observed went undocumented. Many of the images are of architecture, but some are of native peoples as well. There are generous selections from several countries including India (Bombay, Agra, Delhi); Egypt (Karnak and other parts of Luxor, Cairo, Thebes); Russia (the Azerbaijan region: wagons, caravans, and Cossacks); Persia (Tehran, soldiers, Persians, more caravans). The Western European shots are primarily of architecture. A nice selection of images, with more than the usual percentage (probably about two-thirds) from "exotic" locales. One interesting element is that mounted in the rear of the album are photographs (contemporaneous with the others) that have been printed from damaged negatives. .

      1901. Kipling, J.Lockwood. London: Macmillan and Co., 1901. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth with ganesha device in gilt. First English Edition of the book that "is acknowledged as Kipling's masterpiece in fiction... The novel is the finest written about the India of the British Empire" [CGEL]. It follows the adventures of an orphan son of a British soldier who is raised by an Indian woman, becomes a disciple to a Lama, and ultimately becomes an undercover agent as well. The illustrations are by John Lockwood Kipling, the author's father. The American edition is considered to have been published earlier (though in the same month as the English one).~As with most of Kipling's British editions published by Macmillan, the binding is red cloth with in gilt the "Ganesha" device -- an elephant's head with a swastika (the latter had been a ubiquitous symbol in India for millennia; its use ceased in the early 1930s, when events in Germany gave the symbol a whole new meaning).~This is a near-fine copy (very minor wear at the head of the spine, the usual foxing on the frontispiece tissue). Richards A174; Stewart 254; Livingston 250. One of the books selected as a "Modern Library 100" for the 20th Century.

"Samuel Hollyer's Old New York views were created at the turn of the twentieth century to recall sites and scenes in the city and the Hudson River Valley that had largely disappeared in the previous three centuries. The images are historically important sites, houses, taverns, churches, forts, theaters, and public buildings (REFERENCE:NY Historical Society Guide to Samuel Hollyer's Old New York Views 1901-1912, NYHS, NY 2003, NYU Libraries, publisher)."; some of the folders have some rubbing & small tears, otherwise except where conditions are described above the prints are in VERY GOOD COND.

        The Game of Squash. A Practical Handbook to English Squash-Rackets and American Squash-Tennis

      New York: J.F. Taylor & Co., 1901. 16mo. Xxpp., 131pp. 26 pages of squash bo ok advertisements including list of books by same author in rear. Foldout b&w frontispiece sketch of a squash court. 14 photographic illustrations on plates. Photographs demonstrate proper positioning of hands and body. 10 in text line drawings, often diagrams of the court and instructions on how to hold a racket. Bound in soft cover suede-like material, brown with raised lettering for title. Large oval water stain to front and back covers which does not intrude into the book. Some minor creasing to corners of pages. Edges are gilted. Eustace Miles was both a famous athlete and scholar in his day. He won the amateur racquet champion ship of the world in singles, and the championship of England in doubles. He was also amateur squash-tennis champion of America. Miles felt this book was needed because squash had no literature of its own. In the preface he states that he believes this is the first book on the game. Until the year this book was published there had not been a squash championship and very few squash competitions and few professionals devoted solely to it in spite of the fact that thousands played the game. With this book Eustace hoped to teach the game but also to point out the many advantages of the game and its importance in English and American life. Miles wrote on a great variety of subjects in addition to squash. He wrote books on how to write, the Roman Empire, and Jesus Christ in addition to other books on athletics and proper diet.. Book.

        Monthly Suppers of the Male Teachers of New York at Hotel Albert.

      NY Male Teacher's Association of New York 1901 - 24mo. booklet, signed by Mark Twain in pencil on the front cover. The booklet is a program for the monthly dinner meeting of the Male Teacher’s Association of New York that occurred on March 16th, 1901, most notable for the fact that Mark Twain was one of the principal speakers. The theme of the evening was training students to be good citizens, and Twain’s speech addressed his own interpretation of patriotism. In an April 7, 1901 New York Times article covering the event, it is reported that Twain said, "I would teach patriotism in the schools, and teach it this way: I would throw out the old maxim, ‘My country, right or wrong,’ &c., instead I would say, ‘My country when she is right.’" He continued on, saying, "I would not take my patriotism from my neighbor or from Congress. I should teach the children in the schools that there are certain ideals, and one of them is that all men are created free and equal." The first page of the booklet is a roster of the association’s officers and members of the group’s glee club, and the second page is the menu for the evening. The third page lists the seven speakers for the evening, including Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain), and the final page lists the Supper Committee members. Laid in is a mimeographed sheet with the club’s annual budget statement. The text is printed in blue, and the booklet is in printed cream wrappers and tied with a blue ribbon laced through the spine. A few spots of soiling and some faint toning to the covers, ribbon shows some wear, else near fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        TWO PROOF PULLS, probably for a projected but never realized edition of Dante's "Divine Comedy". Six lines in red: the words "Canto Secundo. Canto Nono. Canto Trigesimosecondo." Printed in capitals and in upper and lower case; plus another pull, in black, from the same type setting

      Hammersmith: The Doves Press, n.d. (DOVES PRESS) Both pulls are on Doves paper and are 9 1/4 in. wide; the red is 4 1/2 in. high, the black is 4 1/4 in. Fine . In selecting titles for the Doves Press, T.J. Cobden-Sanderson cast a wide net, drawing in significant works in English, Latin, and German, from the Agricola of 1901 to Goethe's Auserlesene of 1916. It would be surprising if at some time he did not also contemplate an edition of Dante--and as the poet was the first important author to write in Italian, it may be assumed that Cobden-Sanderson would so print him. These two proof pulls--tantalizing glimpses of an unrecorded effort--show that the printer was at least prepared to set type in Italian (this being the only instance of his doing so); one can only conjecture when they were pulled, and the reasons why no further work, to our knowledge, was done. Perhaps Cobden-Sanderson felt himself preempted by the folio Dante of the Ashendene Press; perhaps he decided to concentrate on authors nearer home; perhaps...perhaps...One looks at these precious fragments of an unrealized vision, and one can only speculate on what might have been
