        In Tibet and Chinese Turkestan - Being the Record of Three Years' Exploration

      T Fisher Unwin, London, 1901. 2nd impression. Hardcover. Good/No Jacket. 420 pages (complete). A sound, steady copy of this most important book about early travels in Tibet. Included: a press cutting from 1904 about Colonel Younghusband's expedition to Lhasa (he had arrived at the village of Tuna). There is also a press cutting about Tibet by William Fletcher (W A Fletcher), who travelled and hunted extensively in Tibet. ("The Tibetans are far from being a warlike race. All we came across were shocking cowards..."). The boards are scuffed, worn, rubbed and a little marked by handling and shelving. They are comfortable and sure, masculine and hale. The contents have some evidence of age and use. However, they are youthful, lively, clean, clear, confident, very certain of their purpose and worth. fk

        The Great Emancipator – the first Subject in Alexander Gardner’s Washington, D.C. Studio on August 9, 1863, the Day Before it Opened to the Public

      1901 - Imperial photo from original Alexander Gardner negative taken on August 9, 1863, the day before the official opening of Gardner's Washington, D.C. studio. Printed by M. P. Rice, from Gardner's original plate, ca. 1901, with Rice's copyright notice near bottom right. 13 3/4 x 16 5/8 in. visible; framed 24 3/4 x 28 5/8 in. Ostendorf pose O-71C. Though this just missed being printed in the 19th century, very few photographs of Lincoln of this rare size and clarity survive. Historical BackgroundOn August 9, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln and his personal secretary John Hay visited the new studio of Alexander Gardner, on the corner of 7th and D Streets, over Shephard and Riley's Bookstore. Lincoln had promised to be Gardner's first sitter and chose Sunday to avoid curiosity seekers while on his way there. The President posed for at least six photographs, including this one, which was one of four taken simultaneously with a multi-lens camera and a single glass plate. The images captured that day included both seated and standing poses.Hay noted in his diary that the President "was in very good spirits. He thinks that the rebel power is at last beginning to disintegrate; that they will break to pieces if we only stand firm now." The President was also "very anxious that Texas should be occupied and firmly held" in view of French intervention in Mexico that began in 1861 and later culminated in the installation of Maximilian as Emperor of Mexico in 1864. Only two months earlier, in June 1863, French forces had captured Mexico City, forcing the republican government of Benito Juarez to flee.The same day he sat for this photograph, Lincoln had written to General Ulysses S. Grant about the recruitment of African American soldiers. Since he signed the Emancipation Proclamation seven months earlier, cooperative army officers and others had been recruiting free blacks and former slaves for the army. "I believe it is a resource which," he wrote to Grant, "if vigorously applied now, will soon close the contest. It works doubly, weakening the enemy and strengthening us." He also expressed his concern to Grant about re-establishing the national authority in Western Texas as soon as possible."[1]Alexander Gardner (1821-1882) was born in Scotland and emigrated to the United States in 1856, with an interest in photography. He began working for Matthew Brady and continued until 1862, when he established his own studio. Gardner initially specialized in large Imperial photographs. In 1858, Brady put Gardner in charge of his Washington, D.C. studio, where the beginning of the Civil War spurred a demand for portraits of soldiers leaving for war. Gardner served as a staff photographer under General George B. McClellan, commander of the Army of the Potomac, in 1862, and ended his work for Brady. He photographed the aftermath of the Battle of Antietam and developed photographs in his traveling darkroom. He also photographed several later battles of the Civil War, including Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, and the siege of Petersburg. Gardner photographed Lincoln a total of seven times between 1862 and 1865. After publishing a two-volume photographic work on the Civil War in 1866 that did not sell well, Gardner turned from photography to help found an insurance company.Moses P. Rice (1839-1925) was born in Nova Scotia. He and two of his brothers were photographers in Nova Scotia late in the 1850s, but by 1861, he moved to Washington, D.C., where he became an assistant photographer to Matthew Brady and to Alexander Gardner. Rice later opened his own studio, Moses P. Rice and Sons, in Washington, D.C., and operated it into the twentieth century Rice began selling photographs of Lincoln as early as 1865, and in 1891 and 1901 copyrighted images of the 16th President.ConditionSome touch ups by pen, which is typical on a photograph of this size and age.[1] Abraham Lincoln to Ulysses S. Grant, August 9, 1863, Roy P. Basler et al. (See website for full description)

        The End of an Epoch

      London: William Blackwood. London, William Blackwood, 1901. First Edition. First Impression. A rare book. Presumed first issue, with ads dated '7/01' and a stamp to the title page 'With the Publisher's Compliments.' The author's only title, and thought by Bleiler to be heavily influenced by The Purple Cloud by M.P. Shiel. The Shiel work was rejected by a publisher, and then this work mysteriously appeared. Shiel made accusations of plagiarism. Whether or not that was the case, remains to be seen. Regardless, the book's hard to find. A near fine copy with a little bumping to the spine tips and some dustiness to the top of the block. Endpapers toned, front edge dusty and a little spotted. [5672, Hyraxia Books]. . Very Good.

        Hassall, John - Henley rowing regatta.

      Feestelijkheden ter gelegenheid van de Henley Regatta op de Theems. Kleurenlithografie uit 1901 door John Hassall (1868-1948). Afm. afbeelding: ca. 46 x 66 cm Hassall maakte werken voor verschillende Britse kranten en is in Engeland een van de bekendste affichetekenaars. In zijn sterke contouren wordt hij be?nvloed door de Japanse prentkunst.. De Henley Regatta werd voor het eerst gehouden in 1839 en wordt, behalve tijdens de wereldoorlogen, sindsdien ieder jaar gehouden. De afbeelding van de prent komt uit de tijd dat ´Henley´ met name nog een publieksattractie met een funfair is, georganiseerd door de burgemeester en de bevolking van Henley. Pas later kwam de nadruk op het wedstrijd amateur roeien te liggen. Tegenwoordig is de Royal Regatta een vijfdaags evenement. Price: ?1.850,- (excl. VAT/BTW, incl. frame).

        Il Re Dei Cuochi; ossia, L'arte di mangiare al gusto degl'italiani con cibi nostrali e stranieri; opere contenente quanto è necessario per saper bene ordinare e servire un pranzo, non chè i migliori metodi per fare confetture, rosoli, liquori e gelati. [The King of Chefs; or, The art of eating, after the manner of the Italians, our own and foreign dishes; containing what is necessary to know about ordering and serving a meal, as well as the best methods for creating preserves, spirits, liqueurs, and ice creams.]

      Firenze: Adriano Salani, Editore, 1901. Small octavo (17.5 x 12 cm.), 359 pages. Frontispiece (see description below) and one diagram (a banquet table, from above, set for twenty-four persons). First edition. The earliest recorded copies of this title were printed by Salani in 1904, and there were numerous subsequent printings (see Orazio Bagnasco, II, pages 1406-1407). A recipe collection and guide to the Italian peninsula. L'arte di mangiare presumes a certain focus on batters, grains, creams, and sauces. One might linger over Fritelle di Erbe Odorose (fragrant herb fritters, no. 293) or a regional Sfogliatine with candied fruit (no. 672). But the seven hundred ninety-six numbered recipes insistently embrace fish (tench, bream, mullet, paraghi, carpione), game, and the full complement of bovidae - not to forget hooves, stomachs, testicles, and tongues. The indispensable note "salateli allora quanto basta" ("then add salt to taste") recurs, but precision of measurement is enlisted when needed: Scorzonera (salsify) should be cut in eight or ten centimeter lengths (no. 221); Gelato di Crema alla Mandorla (no. 776) requires three hundred grams of almonds to fourteen egg yolks. And, for those who desire the carmine effect, one needs ten grams of the scale insect cochineal to prepare the liqueur Alkermes (no. 767) - which, in turn, will be needed for the Zuppa Inglese (no. 659). A small host of Italian cookery companions appear in the middle half of the nineteenth century with names of their author(s) omitted, evidently as promise that the cuisine advocated therein would be found to be communal, "of the people" - in a word, national - and not, therefore, the concoctions of a chef in the employ of nobility. They might be either men or women, or even both, as in the case of Il cuoco milanese e la cuciniera piemontese (Milan: Lombardi, 1853). Chefs of noble houses, by contrast, advertised their names and co-opted the language of hierarchy. Probably the most successful cookbook of this milieu was that by Giovanni Nelli: Il re dei cuochi: Trattado di gastronomia universale (Milan: Legros, 1868; and reprinted many times); though later followers raised the royal banner, trumping Nelli's The King of Cooks with The King of Kings of Cooks (Jean-Marie Parmentier's Il re dei re dei cuochi [Turin: Bietti, 1895]) and The Emperor of Cooks (Vitalino Bossi's L'imperatore dei cuochi [Rome: Perini, 1894]). An anonymous sovereign, then, is something of a hybrid. Il re dei cuochi (originally published in 1881) appropriates from Nelli the opening phrase of its title and reproduces on its frontispiece the image of a cook holding a saucepan and slotted spoon that had appeared on Nelli's cover (a popular engraving in neither the first nor last of its sightings). It may have been intended as a less expensive alternative to the Trattado. Recipes occupy center stage: general instructions (obligations of the host, table service, preliminary ingredients notes) are dispensed with in twenty-two pages. Thereafter the impression is one of an attempt to embrace the regions of the peninsula, supplemented with a nod to the Mediterranean beyond, with suffixes such as all 'uso toscano, all'uso di Napoli, alla romagnola, alla veneziana, alla cremonese, alla milanese, alla lucchese, alla triestina, alla perugina, alla genovese, alla lombarda, alla tirolese, alla torinese, alla marchigiana; and all' Istriono, alla provenzale, all' uso di Levante. One leaf loosened, two pages very slightly chipped; otherwise text block solid and pages clean. rebound in lightly worn, publisher's dark green pebbled cloth. Spine rubbed, with gilt short title on spine. Still very good or better. Owner's plate "Ex Libris John Fuller" inside front cover. Very rare. [OCLC locates no copies of the 1891 printing, but two copies dated 1894 with similar pagination, LOC & Texas Tech].

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire Année complète 1901 EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Bureaux de la Revue, 1901. Fine. Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1901, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding Edition Editor at bradel half percaline dark green, smooth back, as part of black morocco, small gilded iron and double gold mesh queue.Douze the January to December 1901. Covers conservées.Chaque number is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Paul Fort, André Gide ("Emmanuel Signoret", "The Limits of Art"), Francis Jammes, etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a review Monthly belonging to the first wave of small symbolist journals. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular collaborators, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. L'Ermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time like the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] that deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his symbolist spirit, employees are more interested in poetry than fiction. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, believes that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddling the end of the century aesthetics and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1901. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Paul Fort, André Gide ("Emmanuel Signoret", "Les limites de l'art"), Francis Jammes, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.
