        George Hendrik Breitner : Indrukken en biographische aantekeningen van A. Pit, W. Steenhoff, Dr. Jan Veth en Prof. Dr. W. Vogelsang met 90 photogravures naar zijne werken. gedenkboek, LUXE UITGAVE !!!!

      Scheltema 1901. Gebonden in een fraaie stempelband naar ontwerp van C.A. Lion Cachet, in Kalfsleer en in kleuren gebatikt. één van de 25 genummerde exemplaren op Japans papier, dit is nummer 10. Gr. in-folio (51 x 40 cm). 178pp.George Hendrik Breitner is generally considered one of the most important painters of the 19th century. Together with Isaac Israëls and Willem Witsen he is one of the founders of what was later called Amsterdam Impressionism. Typical of Breitner is his love for the dynamic city life in the streets.Breitner not only portrayed industrial activities of workmen and draught horses, he depicted busy street views with horse trams, carriages and carts, and domestic and factory maids. Besides town views he painted (self) portraits, interiors, women in kimonos, female nudes, flower still lifes and military subjects. The influence of photography, which was discovered in 1839 and was rapidly increasing in accessibility, can be seen in Breitner?s work. Strong contrasts in light and dark, faded contours like in a blurred snapshot, and cropped figures and objects are characteristic elements in his paintings.

        Class of 1904 Vassar College Scrapbook - Freshmen and Sophomore Years

      Poughkeepsie, New York, 1901. Scrapbook. Scrapbook. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Hardcover "Memorabilia of College Days" scrapbook, approximately 14"x11"x2". 42 full and partial pages; almost all with multiple items attached. Some with explanatory text provided by Ms. Lee. Additionally includes about 100 sheets of 3"x5" papers with pencil drawings of college life, presumably done by Ms. Lee and her friends, as well as another 100 sheets of 3"x5" papers with short pencil notes to Ms. Lee left by friends, presumably while she was not in her dorm room. Scrapbook is disbound and missing the rear cover. The heavy card pages are brittle and chipped along the edges, occasionally damaging the attached items. Parts of several pages are missing. This is a wonderful collection of ephemeral mementos documenting life of a popular and active student at America's premier turn-of-the-century woman's college who participated in many academic and extracurricular activities. The scrapbook contains approximately 125 items including an informational booklet about the school, newspaper clipping about Vassar athletes and their records, Lee's drawings, many event programs and tickets (opera, plays, concerts, recitals, a Paderewski performance, etc.), humorous scraps, quotations, many event announcements (receptions, a performance by the Svengalis, etc.), a dance card with pencil, notes and letters, a wishbone, a thin twig, class schedules, year-end examinations, valentines, a letter from the Superintendent of New York Prisons providing information for Lee to use in a debating contest, basketball booster information (dress, cheers, etc.), a baggage tag, and much more. Internet research reveals that after graduating, Ms. Lee (who was from Honesdale, Pennsylvania) became a teacher and served in the Red Cross during World War One.

        Memoirs of William Cox, JP

      Sydney and Brisbane: William Brooks & Co, 1901. Octavo, portrait frontispiece, coloured plate depicting arms and 2 photographic plates, wear to original tissue protecting title page, top edge gilt; in the original red moire cloth, gilt, just faintly sunned at spine. First edition, rare: an exceptional copy in the original red moiré cloth boards. This work includes printed extracts from Cox's journal, written while he was supervising the building of the first road across the Blue Mountains in late 1814. William Cox (1764-1837) arrived in the colony in 1800 as a lieutenant in the New South Wales Corps, and soon after acquired Brush Farm at Dundas from John Macarthur. By 1803 he had over-reached his credit and, having been suspended as paymaster for the Corps, the ensuing years were turbulent for the young officer (including being arrested and ordered to England in 1807). Cox, not long retired from the army, returned to New South Wales in 1810, where he was made a magistrate on the Hawkesbury by Macquarie. It was Macquarie himself, keen to capitalise on the recent crossing of the Blue Mountains, who commissioned Cox to supervise the construction of the road over the Blue Mountains. Cox was given a small working party of thirty convicts, each of whom had been promised their freedom as a reward. Together, the gang made 163 kilometres of road (including over a dozen bridges) over rugged and mountainous terrain in a staggeringly short six months. It was an extraordinary achievement, and Macquarie rightly praised his efforts and awarded him the first land grant beyond the mountains. This volume reproduces his journal, the original of which is held by the Mitchell Library.

        Artistic Oddities. A Girl's Album of Playful Watercolours from the turn of the Century, Primarily Done in British India

      A girl's album of playful watercolours from the turn of the century, primarily done in British India, with signed comments and humorous verse by family members and many other people. 1901-1907. 119 numbered pages. 280 x 220 mm. Black leather, scuffed, with gilt lettered title to upper front board. Loosely inserted are two letters, a list of songs, and a calling card. 71 pages of comical drawings, many pages with several drawings. The illustrations are mainly of animals, but also caricatures of people and passenger ships. Page 72 a drawing depicts a group of purple robed people, (corner of that page torn). Dorothy made drawings and then asked people to identify the creature and to write an explanation or a piece of doggerel. Some drawings appear to have been done in another hand, (p.68). The album begins in Dover on December 12, 1901 and ends on November 27, 1907 somewhere in India. Dorothy travelled on at least two passenger shgips, the S.S. Moldavia and the S.S. Marmora. Her travels take her to Simla and Lucknow. She also stayed at the Savoy Hotel, Mussorie. A very interesting album, full of fun and weird drawings and captions. .

This was taken by and came back to England with CAPTAIN H. E. M. STUDDY, of the Imperial Yeomanry, 85th.Company, 2nd. Battalion [he left South Africa for England aboard HMS Canada, July 18th. 1901]. *This Proclamation, one of many issued during the Boer Wars, was put out during the second phase of the Second Boer War, two days before Roberts considered the war over and England victorious. There followed two further years of a guerilla war, the third phase. The Orange Free State had been annexed on May 28th. 1900, and renamed the Orange River Colony. The stipulations of the above Proclamation can be seen as a prelude to Kitchener's 'scorched earth' policy operated during phase three. OFFERED WITH : HERFST, J. J.

        Up From Slavery

      NY: Doubleday, Page, (1901) - A remarkable fresh, very nearly fine First Edition of this landmark title.  A tight, square copy, top edge gilt, spine gilt titles and those on front board unusually bright and fresh. Up from Slavery is the 1901 autobiography of Booker T. Washington detailing his personal experiences in working to rise from the position of a slave child during the Civil War, to the difficulties and obstacles he overcame to get an education at the new Hampton University, to his work establishing vocational schools—most notably the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama—to help black people and other disadvantaged minorities learn useful, marketable skills and work to pull themselves, as a race, up by the bootstraps. He reflects on the generosity of both teachers and philanthropists who helped in educating blacks and native Americans. He describes his efforts to instill manners, breeding, health and a feeling of dignity to students. His educational philosophy stresses combining academic subjects with learning a trade (something which is reminiscent of the educational theories of John Ruskin). Washington explained that the integration of practical subjects is partly designed to reassure the white community as to the usefulness of educating black people. This book was first released as a serialized work in 1900 through The Outlook, a Christian newspaper of New York. This work was serialized because this meant that during the writing process, Washington was able to hear critiques and requests from his audience and could more easily adapt his paper to his diverse audience. A very worthwhile addition to a collector’s library, and priced accordingly. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[Please note that listings often cite August 1901 through April 1902 as the HOUND serialization issues, but the title page dates on the issues present in this set are clearly September 1901---which has the opening chapters---and May 1902---which has the concluding chapters. I have been advised that the explanation is that when published in the UK version of the magazine, the issue dates were indeed August through April, but in the US version of the magazine, the issue dates were a month later resulting in a September through May run for HOUND]. The issues are complete [with the other stories, illustrations, etc], save that the original paper covers of the individual issues are mssing]. Privately bound in two true half-leather [spine and corners] hardcover volumes. [This is not the publisher's pictorial blue cloth binding]. Badly in need of rebinding [because the leather has very badly deteriorated, with the spine area broken] but the contents are very nice [as the original paper was of good quality, it is still nearly white, without foxing, etc].. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fair/No Jacket.

        Memoirs of Arii Taimai E Marama of Eimeo, Teriiere of Tooarai, Teriinui of Tahiti, Tauraatua I Amo

      Paris: privately printed, 1901. Quarto, folding map, a fine uncut copy in original blue cloth with gilt label. Tahitian aristocracy explained. Scarce history of Tahiti based on the testimony Arii Taimai, a surviving member of the Tahitian aristocracy. Born in 1824, Arii Taimai was the grand-daughter of Tati, paramount chief of the Papara district of Tahiti. Following the tragic death of his wife, American historian and intellectual Henry Adams arrived in Tahiti in 1891. Here he failed to find the enchanted world portrayed by Robert Louis Stevenson, but did have the good fortune to meet with Arii Taimai, a matriarch 'pleasantly garrulous, full of legends her father had taught her… She had, in her own name, title to more than thirty Tahitian marae. She had also been adopted by the widow of Pomare II, and had spent nearly the whole of her life suspended in the web of rhetoric about dominance and legitimacy of Tahitian lines and titles' (Dening, p. 278). Arii Taimai spoke to Adams through her daughter Marau who acted as an interpreter. Upon returning to the United States, Adams wove her testimony into his own researches on Tahiti and in 1893 published a small number of copies of which only a handful remain. This is the second edition of 1901, privately printed in Paris on fine paper stock with generous margins (several facsimile editions have since followed). In his bibliography of the library of Bjarn Kroepelien, bibliographer Rolf du Rietz comments on its scarcity and importance. He claims the memoirs 'must certainly be regarded as one of the finest items in the collection. Only a very few copies were printed, and these are now mostly to be found in public institutions'. This book itself is a strange blend, Adams having taken the testimony of Arii Taimai and woven it into his own history of the islands. Adams contrived Arii Taimai as the author, an effort constantly undermined by his scholarly references to voyage accounts, European philosophy and classical mythology. Nonetheless, much of the content is directly derived from the author's personal interaction with the Tahitian matriarch, and as such the book contains unique and valuable accounts of the history and genealogy of the islands. From the library of acclaimed American novelist Louis Auchincloss, with his bookplate.
