        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].

        Celebration of the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Establishment of... the District of Columbia

      1901. First Edition . COX, William V. Celebration of the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Establishment of the Seat of Government in the District of Columbia. Washington: Government Printing Office, 1901. Large quarto, contemporary dark brown morocco blind and gilt stamped boards inlaid into full brown morocco gilt binding, later marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $4500.First edition of this richly illustrated celebration of Washington, DC, this copy specially bound for President Theodore Roosevelt, with his name in gilt on the front cover.December 12, 1900, was the celebration of the centennial of the founding the capital of the United States in Washington, DC. As there was no specific birthdate for the District of Columbia, President McKinley chose a convenient time when Congress would still be in session. Nearly every state's governor was in attendance, as were heads of state. Roosevelt attended the celebration as Governor of New York, although he had already been elected Vice President under McKinley's 1900 campaign. This volume was presumably published early in the year, so Roosevelt undoubtedly received his copy as Vice President. He became President on September 14, 1901, after McKinley was assassinated. This richly illustrated tribute to our nation's capital includes four large folding maps printed in color at rear. Maps with a few cellophane tape and expert repairs, original morocco boards expertly restored and inlaid into a new morocco binding. A beautiful copy with a memorable Presidential association.

        Map of East China [with manuscript annotations in ink marking the routes of several major railway lines].

      Kartographische Abtheilung der Konigl. Preuss. Landes-Aufnahme 1901 - Large fold-out map, dissected into 16 segments, each measuring approximately 12” x 14” and backed onto canvas. Text in German. Map dimensions: 48½” x 57” (121cm x 145cm). Complete with original slipcase. With a pasted down label of Edward Stanford, London on the map and also the slipcase. A detailed map of the East China coast, showing major cities and terrain. At the bottom there is printed reference to material taken from unpublished works of Ferdinand von Richthofen, a German geographer who made detailed topographical maps of China, and was also the uncle of Manfred von Richtofen, the “Red Baron” flying ace. Manuscript lines and annotations added to the map, which indicate the alignment of the recently constructed and proposed railway lines. Stamped "A.J. Barry" on both map and slipcase. Arthur John Barry was Joint Consulting Engineer on many of the Chinese Railway projects of the time including for Chinese Central Railways, Shanghai-Nanking Railway and Canton-Kowloon Railway. The map is a German original, but was sold by Stanford, suggesting that it may have been issued by Stanford at the specific request of Barry, with Stanford buying the sheets from the German publisher, dissecting and backing it onto canvas, and adding the slipcase. Exceptionally scarce, we can find no institutional holding of this Edward Stanford issue. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Cruise of the Petrel: A Story of 1812

      New York: McClure, Phillips & Co.. 1901. First. First edition. Gray cloth stamped in black in white with a picture of a frigate at sea illustrated by Florence Pearl Nosworthy. Very good with slight darkening of the spine, front hinge cracked, light foxing on endpapers, still an attractive copy. Inscribed by the author on the front fly: "To C.C. Converse, from his friend, T. Jenkins Hains, Sept 26, 03, Echo Boy, Yacht Edna." Seven relatable newspaper clippings laid in on preliminary pages causing some offsetting. Also, tipped in is a silver gelatin photograph of the author behind the ship's wheel, posing with a male and two female companions (one of which may be Amelie Troubetzkoy). An added bonus to this already phenominal item is a small piece of paper affixed to the page preceding the contents with the signature of the author and poet, Amelie Troubetzkoy.Thornton Jenkins Hains, 1866-1953, was an American novelist who found popularity with his nautical tales. His maternal grandfather, Admiral Thornton A. Jenkins, served in the War of 1812 and Hains used the logbooks he kept as inspiration for The Cruise of the Petrel. Hains is mostly remembered for his part in the "Regatta Murder", the killing of William Annis by Hains' brother, Peter C. Hains. Peter's wife was having an affair with Annis and it was Thornton that told his brother this information. This resulted in Peter murdering Annis at the Ladies' Regatta while his brother stood watch. Although not convicted of any crime the event soiled his reputation and he adopted the pen name Mayn Clew Garnett from then on. A scarce and intriguing copy of an interesting title. .

        [SEVEN PIECES OF ORIGINAL ARTWORK USED AS ILLUSTRATIONS FOR THE BOOKS, "DEEDS OF VALOR: HOW AMERICA'S HEROES WON THE MEDAL OF HONOR"]

      [N.p., 1901. Seven tempera paintings on board, each approximately 20 x 30 inches. Image sizes vary, most approximately 15 x 22 inches, with one image being painted to the edges of the board. Some chipping at board edges, affecting just one image. Light dust soiling and a few stray marks in margins. Images generally clean and fine. An attractive group of seven grayscale tempera paintings that served as illustrations for episodes described in the 1901-1902 books, DEEDS OF VALOR, which relates the stories of Medal of Honor winners in the United States Military from the Civil War to the Boxer Rebellion. Four paintings are signed by George Henderson, two more are signed by an artist named Ball, not further identified, and a final painting is not signed, but the artist is identified on the verso as E. Jahn. The first painting chronologically depicts a scene from the Battle of Harper's Ferry, which took place at the end of May 1862, with action surrounding horse-drawn artillery on the heights above the Shenandoah River. The second painting shows the destruction of a Confederate privateering vessel in Galveston Bay. A third painting, "New Ulmer Citizens Behind the Barricades," depicts a defense against an attack by Winnebago and Blackfeet Indians at New Ulm, Minnesota in August 1862. The remaining artwork renders post-Civil War military action. "I Stationed All My Men on Elevated Points" depicts an episode from the Indian Wars, during which the U.S. Cavalry fought a snowy battle against the Sioux in Montana in February 1880. The final three paintings show events from the turn of the 20th century, including an illustration of the final moments of the U.S.S. Maine, whose destruction brought about the Spanish-American War. Another depicts the death of Gen. Henry R. Lawton during the Philippine-American War, and the final painting shows the American defense of Beijing during the Boxer Rebellion in 1900. An excellent set of paintings depicting diverse American military actions.

        Splendid Large unsigned Portrait Photograph, (1882-1960, younger daughter of Alexander III, and her 2nd husband Colonel of Cavalry Nikolai KULIKOVSKY (1881-1958)]

      1901 - showing her standing full length, full face, eyes turned to the viewer's right, in a long dress beautifully embroidered in Russian style with patterns of spirals, above her forehead is a bar with five jewelled pendants, a rose in her left hand, her right rests on the studio mantelpiece holding a trailing ribbon from her dress, 21" x 13", no place, no date, circa From her ring we believe this dates from shortly after her wedding to Duke Peter of Oldenburg (1868-1924). In April 1916, Nicholas II annulled his sister's 15-year marriage. In November that year, while serving as a nurse at Kiev, she married Colonel Nikolai Kulikovsky. When it became possible to leave Russia in 1920, Olga's mother Dagmar (Empress Marie Feodorovna) summoned her to Hvidore, where Olga for a time acted as her secretary. The couple then bought a farm which they worked to earn a living, supplemented by the sale of Olga's paintings. Olga was a focus of help for Russian emigrés, and also the target of imposters, including Anna Andersen, whom she quickly realized was not her niece. After the war they gave up the farm and took an opportunity to move to Canada, after spending time at Hampton Court with Olga's sister Xenia.

        LA GRANDE FLORA DE COLORADO DE MONTAÑA Y LLANOS

      Denver: Frank S. Thayer, 1901. Series I (all published). Text printed in brown, one leaf with title with integral introduction on recto, and on verso a list of contents and note of limitation. Twelve chromolithographs by Percy W. Franklin after Oscar Achleitner, each within an original oval mount with a blindstamped border, and an accompanying tissue guard printed with the botanical and/or common name of the flower, a note of when it is in flower, three or four lines of appropriate poetry, and a short descriptive text. Large folio. Publisher's khaki-green morocco-grained cloth portfolio with wallet-style flap, cover stamped in gilt, red moiré restraining bands. Extremities worn, slight separations starting at portfolio folds. Some light wear and soiling to text, first tissue guard torn and lightly chipped. Colors bright and sharp. Overall, very good. Rare, "Edition de Luxe," limited to 1000 copies, this being number 299. A high quality series of very fine images, beautifully presented. It is very likely that far fewer than 1000 copies of this beautiful collection of twelve chromolithographic studies of the flowers of the mountains and plains of Colorado were ever produced. The subjects are: the Wild Rose; Rocky Mountain Aster; Fairy's Torch; Tiger Lily; Gaillardia; Pentstemon; Gilia; Sand Lily; Rocky-Mountain Thimble Berry; Rocky Mountain Columbine; Fringed Gentian; and Evening Primrose. Thayer explains in the introduction that the work was begun in May 1900 by Oscar Achleitner of Denver who "commenced the task of painting the most popular of varied species from mountain and plain...[and] transcribed in water colors the studies comprising this collection." The paintings were then transferred to lithographic stones by Percy W. Franklin of Montclair, Colorado. The text accompanying each plate is by Mrs. Sarah Bennett Walker of Sedalia, Colorado. Thayer concludes by promising a "second series" in 1902, but this never appeared. A scarce and beautiful work.

        Faithful Friends

      London: Blackie and Son, [1901]. The Exceptionally Scarce Two-Shilling Deluxe First Edition [RACKHAM, Arthur]and Cecil Aldin, etc., illustrators] Various Authors. Faithful Friends; Pictures and Stories for Little Folk. London: Blackie and Son Limited, n..d., [1901]. First edition, deluxe binding. Quarto. (10 1/8 x 7 3/4 in; 258 x 196 mm) 86 pp. With six full page two-color, and two black and white, illustrations by Rackham; miscellaneous color illustrations by Cecil Aldin, Felix Leigh, A.M. Hutton, Louis Wain, Gunning King, EAC [Edward Caldwell], Fannie Moody, M.E.E [Mary Ellen Edwards], M. Dixon, and others. Text by various authors. Publisher's blue cloth, pictorially stamped in yellow, orange and pale gray depicting a little girl bearing a makeshift flag, walking with a dog and cat. Spine decoratively lettered in white and orange, gray coated end-papers, all edges gilt. School prize label on front free end-paper dated "April 1902". Small booksellers label (Dolby Brothers, Stamford, UK) on front paste-down. Spine ends a little frayed, some occasional and very light marginal soiling. A near fine copy. Latimore & Haskell and Derek Hudson declare 1913 as the year of this book's first publication, yet the plates by Rackham are dated "1901." COPAC notes a copy and assigns "1902" as publication date but without explanation. OCLC notes a copy, "Printed by Blackie and Son Limited at the Villafield Press, Glasgow"-Cover./ Publisher's advertisement on p. [iv] of cover, for Hassall Nursery Series./ Binding: Pictorial boards with red cloth spine. Color illustration on cover of horse and dog," and assigns the date as 1913 (Riall notes this edition as 1904). We have seen another, similar undated edition in green cloth with a color illustration of dog and horse on laid to green cloth. And yet another edition, with pictorial boards similar to the copy under notice, in green cloth. Confusion may be (somewhat) cleared up by noting that the October 11, 1901 issue of The Bookseller, in its announcements of upcoming books, lists "Faithful Friends: My Book of Nursery Stories" within "Children's Books & c. By Messrs. Blackie and Son." In the same issue of The Bookseller, advertisements by Blackie tout "Faithful Friends: My Book of Nursery Stories" available in a Two-Shilling Toy-Books edition bound in "picture boards with edges gilt " (our emphasis) and as a One-Shilling Toy-Book ("These form a Cheaper Edition of the Toy-Books of the same title in the 2s series"). We have yet to find evidence of the book, with that subtitle, ever being published. Indeed, Latimore and Haskell (and Hudson) list the book under the title "Faithful Friends, A Collection of Short Stories by Various Authors" with the caveat: "Note: As the compilers could not see a copy of this book, the information was taken from the publishers." Their record for this book, then, is unreliable, and likely referring to a later edition. It seems quite unlikely that the book 's publication was postponed for ten years. Based upon the advertisements in The Bookman, we conclude that the book was, indeed, issued in 1901 (Riall dates it to 1902 but did not have the advertisements at his disposal) with the present subtitle a substitution, and that this copy is amongst the very scarce few Two-Shilling Toy-Books editions with all edges gilt to have survived the last 115 years. In over fifty years of specializing in the works of Arthur Rackham this is only the second copy of the true first edition that we have ever seen or heard of. Illustrations by Arthur Rackham: (by leaf signature): 1. L11 "Playful Puppies" (Full-page, yellow, cream and black) 2. L22 "Waiting for the Train" (Full-page, yellow, cream and black) 3. N4 "Breakfast-Time" (Full-page, red, pink and black) 4. [N22] "In the Farmyard" (Full-page, yellow, cream and black) 5. M9 "Pussycat Town" (three-quarter page black and white) 6. M11 "Pussy's Playtime" (Full-page, yellow, cream and black) 7. M15 [The Bold Kitten] (one-third page black & white vignette). 8. M29 "My Pets" (Full-page, red, pink and black) Latimore and Haskell p. 41. (citing 1913 edition - not seen). Hudson p. 176. (citing 1913 edition). Gettings p.178. (citing 1913 edition). Hamilton p. 189. (citing 1913 edition). Riall p. 63. (citing 1902 edition as being the first printing).

        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).
