        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.

        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).

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

      , 1901. 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.

      UNDER THE ROOF OF BLUE IONIAN WEATHERHeliogravure uit 1901 uitgegeven door Arthur Tooth & Sons. naar het gelijknamige schilderij (Opus CCCLXIII) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 35 x 82,5 cm.Aristocratische meisjes en hun mannelijke begeleider luisteren naar een fluitist. Inspiratie voor de titel van het werk vond Alma-Tadema in een brief van de beroemde Engelse dichter Percy Bysshe Shelley: ?We watched the ocean and sky together, under the roof of blue Italian weather?. Shelley (1792 - 1822) gold als idool voor de groep Victoriaanse en Pre-Rapha?litische kunstenaars.Een kunstrecensent zei na het gereedkomen van het schilderij: ?Its colour is so equisite and dainty; its composition and arrangement so consummately learned, whether as to perspective, linear and aerial, tone and atmosphere, and reflected lights; and the drawings of the figures and the painting of the flesh so admirable that this picture may be pronounced in some qualities superior to, or more attractive than anything the master has produced before.?Prijs: ? 3.150,- (incl. lijst).

        The Discovery of the Solomon Islands by Alvaro de Mendaña in 1568.

      London: Hakluyt Society, 1901. Two volumes, octavo, photographic plates, four maps (two folding) in a pocket; original blue cloth. Translated from the original Spanish manuscripts, comprising six separate accounts of the journey, this is the standard scholarly edition of the narrative of the voyage of Mendaña and his associates aboard the Capitana and the Almiranta, in search of habitable lands off the coast of Peru, and their subsequent discovery of the Solomon Islands. This translation took thirty years to complete before being published by the Hakluyt Society, due to careful cross-referencing of material that was continually coming to light during the process. Some pages loosening; cloth rubbed; spines sunned and darkened but a reasonable copy.
