        [ALBUM OF SEVENTY-FOUR PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE BOXER REBELLION IN PEKING, TIENTSIN, AND SURROUNDING AREAS, SHOWING SCENES OF THE CITY AND SEVERAL BEHEADINGS]

      Beijing. 1901-1902.. Twenty-seven leaves, with seventy-four photographs, most measuring 3 x 4 or 6 x 8 inches. Oblong. Three-quarter leather and cloth, manuscript inscription on front cover. Some light scattered foxing and soiling to mounts, but images very good. In a Oblong morocco box. A fascinating album of documentary views, showing the cities of Peking (Beijing) and Tientsin (Tianjin) after the Boxer Rebellion, highlighting the different foreign legations, the return of the Imperial entourage to the city, and several very grim images of beheading prisoners. With the opening of China to the West came a tide of commerce and Christian missionaries. In the Shandong Province, a religious movement arose that was both anti- Christian and anti-Western, dubbed the Society of Righteous and Harmonious Fists or "Boxers United in Righteousness." The movement, comprised mainly of young men from villages, practiced martial arts and believed themselves invulnerable to bullets and canon fire. Combined with a drought and several years of economic depression, attacks on Christian missionaries and Chinese Christians increased in the last few years of the century, culminating in the uprising of the summer of 1900. The Boxer Rebellion spread south from Shandong into the area around Peking and Tientsin, finally moving into the city. The Boxers, supported by the Chinese army and the Imperial government, besieged foreigners who walled themselves inside the Legation quarter. Ultimately, a coalition of soldiers from Austria-Hungary, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States invaded China, defeating the Chinese and occupying the area until the peace accords of September 1901. The cover of this album is inscribed "Henry Lawson to Joel Docking, Seattle, Oct. 27, 1903." Some of the first photographs show Dagald Lawson (d. 1930), a Scottish Presbyterian missionary and his colleague David Urquhart, both of the China Inland Mission, who worked at Yu-wu, Lu- ch'eng, and Shan-si. Dagald Lawson was married to Jeannie Lawson (d. 1933), who has some renown as the host of Gladys Aylward in the story recounted in the film "Inn of the Sixth Hapiness." We presume that Henry Lawson was one of their children who, as Aylward reports, grew up and left China. The photos in this album show the destruction of buildings, the return of the Imperial Court to Peking (January 1902), tourist destinations such as the Great Wall, local customs such as foot binding and an opium den, views of the German, French, English, and Italian presence in the city, and finally, fourteen photos depict the execution of prisoners, including grisly and graphic shots of severed heads. All in all, a fascinating look at China immediately after the Boxer revolt.

        The Octopus: A Story of California

      Doubleday, Page and Company, New York 1901 - First edition, first issue with the J.J. Little device on the copyright page and all textual points. A little offsetting to the endpapers from the jacket flaps and other light wear, still fine with the gilt particularly fresh, in a near fine example of the exceptionally rare dustwrapper with a few small spots and a shallow chip at the crown. Apparently this is the only known copy in the original dustwrapper -- Joseph R. McElrath (author of *Frank Norris: a Descriptive Bibliography*) had never seen or heard of a copy in jacket, nor is there any mention of the jacket in *BAL* or *Lohf and Sheehy*, and it is lacking from the Bancroft Library's Frank Norris Collection. In addition, this is a bibliographically interesting copy -- McElrath notes two states of p.526 of the first issue and this copy is in the second state (the leaf a corrected cancel), but there are two blanks laid in opposite each side of the new leaf, each offset from the text and clearly present from printing and used to blot the fresh ink of the cancel. Because of the presence of the jacket and the easily removable blotter leaves, we strongly suspect this was a publisher's file copy or otherwise set aside and never offered in a contemporary bookstore. The first volume in the author's proposed *Epic of Wheat* trilogy. Norris died in October 1902 at age 32, and only this first volume was published during his lifetime. The second, *The Pit* was published posthumously, and the third was never finished. The nicest condition copy obtainable of an important book from the "muckraking" era, probably unique in jacket. *BAL* 15036, *McElrath* A6.I.a. See this book in 3D on our site.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Winston S. Churchill"), to Major James B. Pond, with related notes

      [New York], january 31, 1901. 3 pp. pen and ink on three sheets of 105, Mount Strett, W. stationery, rectos only, with original envelope. Creased from prior folding, small closed tears at folds, else fine . On December 1, 1900, Churchill sailed for New York to begin a two month speaking tour of North America organized by Major James Pond. The young Churchill was fresh from the battlefield of four of Queen Victoria's wars, where he served a dual role as officer and war correspondent. His lecture, "The War as I Saw It," was a telling of his views on the South African War and his escape from captivity, all illustrated with magic lantern slides. Major James Burton Pond (1838-1903) was a lecture promoter who, in addition to Churchill, represented Samuel Clemens, Arthur Conan Doyle and Henry Stanley. Churchill writes to Pond on the final day of the tour, two days before he set sail for England on the day of Queen Victoria's funeral. Reading in part, "I am much obliged to you for the handsome volumes you have presented me with, and which I shall add to my small but growing library with great satisfaction - I am of course disappointed with the small profit [£1,600] my tour has resulted in, but at the same time I do not regret my visit to these shores for I have gained a great many new ideas and learned and have learned a good deal that will be of value later on. I am sorry we had a disagreement for although I am not quite convinced that you have managed the lecture tour well, I fear I was unreasonable. However, any annoyance I may have caused you was more than balanced by the wide circulation of your unfortunate 'interview'; so that I think we may - forget the business -" Though this letter aims at something of a reconciliation, Churchill was deeply unhappy with Pond's handling of the tour. "Pond's advance work had left Winston so angry that he threatened to call off the tour. Posters hailed him as 'the hero of five wars,' at least one too many. A reception committee of local dignitaries featured so many Dutch names that it might have been made up of Boers - Things were not off to a good start - Winston fought with Pond - he was nothing but a vulgar Yankee impresario, who was taking 30 percent of the fees and subcontracting some of the lectures to local agents for a fixed guarantee" (Morgan, Churchill Young Man in a Hurry, pp. 141-144). With a collection of papers and notes relating to the tour and the Churchill/Pond relationship, including: 6 p. autograph draft of notes by Pond, describing several unpleasant anecdotes concerning Churchill's lecture tour. March 5, 1901. "Buel [Clarence Clogh Buel, editor of The Century Magazine] asked me how I ever came to bring to this country that ass of a Churchill - 'He is the biggest idiot you have brought here yet' said Buel." The note goes on to relate Richard Le Gallienne's account of Churchill's stay with bibliophile James Young of Minneapolis and Churchill's imperious behavior towards his host. Eastern Union telegram from Churchill to Pond in Stamphix, NY, announcing his decision to lecture in North America. London, July 30, 1900. "- Have decided come lecture in America during December January February Perhaps fortnight longer -" with address in pencil, "35a Great Cumberland Pl. London W." Split vertically with old repair. 26 pp. typed carbon of notes by Pond concerning Churchill's lecture tour and their acrimonious relationship, with a few notes in Pond's hand. A fascinating and detailed account of the breakdown of the relationship between Churchill and Pond, with transcripts of letters and recalled conversations. The typescript focuses on Churchill's refusal while in Canada to continue the lecture on the grounds that his percentage of the door is too small

        Quo Vadis [A Tale of the Time of Nero] [Association Copy] [ephemera]

      London: George Routledge & Sons, Ltd, 1901 London: George Routledge & Sons Ltd., 1901. Translated from the Polish by S.A. Binion. Apparent gift edition. Association copy. Please see scans. 12mo, 512 pp. Full cream calf, gilt lettering, gilt-tooled design of almost byzantine ornateness, red stained page edges, elaborate satin-textured gilt floral endpapers. The words "Constance" and then "Rome 1902" are at right center of cover (see below). Social calling card of Miss Constance DeYoung laid in. Faint soiling at places on the cream calf, some fading of page edge dye bottom and top, minute bleeding of red page edge dye onto edge of endpapers, calf board curving just a bit. Just Very Good, but a beautiful and impressive binding with serious shelf appeal. Henryk Sienkiewicz, Polish author of both historical and revolutionary bent, earned the 1905 Nobel Prize in large part on the strength of his tale of Christian persecution in era of Nero, Quo Vadis. This finely bound gift copy is dedicated on the cover to "Constance" - that being Miss Constance de Young, of the socially situated San Francisco family: her father was Mike de Young, founder of The Chronicle. At the time of this gift, she was apparently of debutante age. Later, she married Joseph O. Tobin, nephew of Joseph S.Tobin, a onetime PG&E director; PG&E and The Chronicle were long of a kinship of sorts, through such family bonds. Joseph O. Tobin later became an owner of The Chronicle himself. Constance's social calling card is laid in here, giving her address, as a young lass, as "1919 California Street". She wouldn't move far: per the San Francisco Social Register listings for 1927 (see below), as Mrs. Tobin, she would reside at 1969 California Street. Familiar San Francisco names, all, and looking at the book and the card here, silently, arouses something of a wistful and envious feeling. As the dedicated gift copy with ephemera, unique; not replaceable.

        Our National Parks [Extra Illustrated].

      370 pp. Green cloth with gilt titles, front board decorated in gilt and black, top edge gilt. Later printing. Illus. with 12 b/w plates. BAL 14752. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to Mr. & Mrs. Ray W. Simonds "with kindest regards and many pleasant memories, " dated 1907. Three tipped-in photographs, two of Muir with Simonds (who would have been approximately 28 years old given his graduation from Berkeley High School in 1896), both outdoors; the third is a sweeping landscape view of one of the national parks. It is unclear how the Simonds' and Muir met, but they did so on may occasions, and correspondence to this effect can be found in letters to Muir by Edith (Mrs. Ray) Simonds in the Muir archives. Books signed by Muir are uncommon and there are no auction records for a signed copy of this work in any edition in at least the last fifty years. Provenance: From the library of Kenneth E. Hill, with his bookplate. A very good copy, joint just starting after title page, boards rubbed, small faint circular stain to front board, small bookplate, occasional offsetting from mounted photos and small advertisement for book (which is laid in loose).

        The Quest of the Orchis" in THE INDEPENDENT. June 27, 1901. Frost's Third National Publication

      New York, 27 June 1901. First Edition. wraps. Small stain to the front cover; minor wear and small chips. Very Good and quite scarce. Contains Frost's third national appearance in print, here as R. L. Frost, after the poem "My Butterfly: An Elegy" which appeared in the same magazine in 1894 and "The Birds Do This," also in this publication in 1896. The importance of this magazine to Frost predated his writing for it. According to Elizabeth Shepley Sergeant, Frost's first encounter with the publication was of immense importance to him: "I happened into the old library, and found on the magazine rack a copy of the INDEPENDENT, with a poem on the front page.... This experience gave me my very first revelation that a publication existed, anywhere in my native land, that was a vehicle for the publication of poetry."

        AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT ENTITLED "LES HEURES CHOISIES

      Desgodets et Gerard but not an actual imprint Paris: Desgodets et Gérard [but not an actual imprint], 1901. Hardcover. 178 x 92 mm (7 x 3 5/8"). 46 unnumbered leaves, mounted on stubs (including two blanks before sectional openings and two blank leaves where text was apparently intended to appear but was never written out); single column, 20 lines, in an elegant italic script. Contemporary marbled calf, raised bands with flanking blind rules extending onto covers, upper board with blindstamped coronet at center and entwined "S" and "R" in lower right corner, turn-ins with blind-tooled scrolling frame enclosed by double gilt fillets, ivory watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt. BEAUTIFULLY PAINTED AND ILLUMINATED THROUGHOUT: two richly illuminated title pages at the front with full floral borders, the first with a pond of yellow waterlilies at foot, cattails growing on one side and purple irises on the other, at the top the Holy Dove descending in a golden sunburst towards a banderolle highlighted with silver and with the title in brushed gold; the second with a birdbath at foot, two doves perched on the rim and a rambling pink rose growing out of the center, the top half of the page with the Christogram "IHS" emitting rays of golden light, below it a billowing silver cloud inscribed with the title in gold; foliated initials throughout, each page with a border comprising various decorative shapes along the top and outer edge, a wider ornamental border at the bottom throughout, each of these larger borders with graceful and realistic floral displays in many colors, gold, and silver; most pages with additional vine, branch, or religious symbols in an upper corner; a third ornate title page (this one for the Nuptial Mass) decorated predominantly in green, silver, and gold and bearing two escutcheons with the initials "S" and "L"; (15 pages here and there with decoration drawn in but unaccountably left uncolored).Vague fading and slight wear to the binding, but the volume solid and pleasant in appearance. IN EXTREMELY FINE CONDITION INTERNALLY, with virtually no signs of use. This is at once a lovely and puzzling little manuscript that seems to have been designed for use in a way that never materialized. The text contains prayers used before, during, and after Mass as well as the complete Mass for celebrating a marriage, and since the latter section is preceded by a title with an escutcheon bearing the initials "S" and "L," it seems reasonable to speculate that the work might have been intended as a wedding gift for the bride and groom whose names began with those letters. Whatever the intention, it is entirely possible that this manuscript was not used for its envisioned purpose. Possibly our artist ran out of time to complete this project, as 15 pages are left uncolored, and the text in the Mass skips from the Epistle Prologue to the middle of the Creed, with two blanks in between. Perhaps the missing text was too big for the space left to fill, or perhaps those who commissioned the project changed their minds. It is also possible that the wedding was called off, and this handsome object was unhappily discarded, along with cake and tiaras. In any case, the manuscript has been subjected to virtually no use, a fact that explains why the leaves left for recording births, marriages, and deaths at the back are not used and why the internal condition here is so outstanding. The appearance of a publisher's imprint on the first title pages suggests that the manuscript was copied from a printed book, and Desgodets et Gérard was a frequent publisher of chromolithographed prayer books and holy cards. But this is not--as it may appear at first to be--a printed book, as universal tiny irregularities in the formation of letters identify it as a manuscript, likely intended for a wealthy client who wanted something substantially more luxurious than a printed object for an occasion as special as a wedding. The scribe and illuminator worked with considerable skill here, producing a beautifully legible text framed by colorful garden flowers. The delicate hand coloring adds to the realism: the flowers are not generic five-petaled rosettes, but realistically rendered foxgloves, hollyhocks, sweet peas, wisteria, and sweet william. Gold and silver are used extensively but subtly, enhancing rather than outshining the designs. (As with other puzzles here, the question of why the initials on the cover are "S" and "R" and those on the escutcheons are "S" and "L" remains a mystery.).

        Zur Theorie des Gesetzes der Energieverteilung im Normalspectrum.Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1900. First edition.

      Rare first printing, and a very fine copy, of the founding document of quantum theory, "marking the dividing line between classical and modern physics" (Norman). In this celebrated first announcement of quantum theory, Planck derived his radiation law based upon the assumption that energy is emitted and absorbed in discrete quanta. Dibner 166; PMM 391; Horblit/Grolier 26a; Evans 47; Sparrow 162.<br/><br/> "In this important paper he stated that energy flowed not in continuous, indefinitely divisible currents, but in pulses or bursts of action [or quanta]" (Dibner). Planck determined a unit of energy in a system showing a natural frequency in definite quanta and proposed a constant of angular momentum, the value of which is known as 'Planck's constant.' This unit of energy enabled the explanation of wave-length, specific heat of solids, photo-chemical effects of light, the orbits of electrons in the atom, the wave lengths of the lines of the spectrum, or Röntgen rays, the velocity of rotating gas molecules, and the distances between the particles of a crystal. "It contradicted the mechanics of Newton and the electromagnetics of Faraday and Maxwell. Moreover it challenged the notion of the continuity of nature" (PMM). <br/><br/> "Planck made many contributions to theoretical physics, but his fame rests primarily on his role as originator of the quantum theory. This theory revolutionized our understanding of atomic and subatomic processes, just as Albert Einstein's theory of relativity revolutionized our understanding of space and time. Together they constitute the fundamental theories of 20th-century physics. Both have forced man to revise some of his most cherished philosophical beliefs, and both have led to industrial and military applications that affect every aspect of modern life" (Roger H. Stuewer, Britannica). <br/><br/> Published by the Berlin Physics Society, the first appearance of Planck's revolutionary work is very rare. (It was later published, in 1901, in the more widely distributed Annalen der Physik).. In: Verhandlungen der Deutschen Physikalischen Gesselschaft im Jahre 1900, Zeiter Jahrgang, pp. 237-245. The entire volume offered here in a fine contemporary half cloth binding over marbled with gilt spine lettering, rubberstamp from the 'Physikalisches Institut, Universität Jena' to front free end-paper and title. 4to (217 x 148 mm), pp vi 260.

        Up From Slavery (Inscribed First Edition)

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Co, 1901. First edition. Near Fine. Inscribed by the author: "To Mr. H. A. Moore | with kind wishes of Booker T. Washington | April 3, 1902." Complete with the portrait frontispiece of the author with his facsimile signature. Near Fine on account of old newspaper clippings about the author tipped in on the paste-downs. Bright cloth and gilt, with the top-edge of the page block also gilt. In all a sharp copy of this important autobiography. & & Washington was born into slavery in 1856 in Virginia until he was emancipated at the close of the Civil War in 1865. After attending Hampton Institute and Wayland Seminary, he was chosen to head the Tuskegee Institute, where he remained until his death in 1915. Washington&#39;s political philosophy was generally one of non-confrontation, coupled with an emphasis on educating the African-American community, a philosophy of which his northern counterparts, most notably W.E.B. Dubois, were openly critical. "Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome..." ("Up From Slavery" p. 39). Near Fine.
