        Traité des échecs et recueil des parties jouées au tournoi international de 1900

      Paris: Societe Anonyme de Publications Periodiques P Mouillot, 1901. 460 pages with frontispiece and index. Octavo (8 1/4" x 5 1/4") bound in half blue cloth with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine and marbled boards. (Bibliotheca van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5256) First edition.Like the historic London competition nearly half a century earlier (1851, the third Paris international tournament was conducted in the exciting splendor of the world's fair. A total of 17 players from Germany, Hungary, Mexico, Austria, the Untied States, England, Russian and France competed for 12,800 in prize money and four valuable Servres fases donated by the French Government. The Grande Cercle club served the visiting masters free coffee, tea and lemonade during the competition. The participants were permitted to take all their meals in the club, which was known for its superior cuisine. The Paris organizing committee, following the example of the London 1883 and New York 1889 tournaments, required that all drawn games be replayed. Only the result of the second game would count. In another attempt to encourage fighting chess, the committee announced that ties at the end of the tournament would be broken by number og games won. Schlechter fell victim to this tie-breaking system: he posted a +9 -5 =2 score to finish even with Marco and Mieses (both +10 -6 =0) in seventh-ninth places but went without a prize, since he had won fewer games. The London-domiciled Lasker (+14 -1 =1)began in impressive fashion with successive victories against Schlechter, Didier, Burn and Mieses. He then suffered his only defeat, this at the hands of the exciting 23 year old American rookie, Marsha. The Paris victory was Lasker's fourth in international competition and clearly established him as the world's premier player. The "American Eagle" Pillsbury (+12 -3 =1) soared into an early lead, but losses to Marshall (26 moves), Lasker (23 moves) and Burn consigned him to second place. Marshall, another brash young invader from across the Atlantic, also covered himself with glory (+11 -3 =2). He entered the final round with 12 points, then suffered a painful setback at the hands of the grimly pursuing Marcozy. The loss dropped him into a tie for third and fourth places with his Magyar conqueror. Enroute to his impressive showing, Marshall scored a 5 1/2 out of seven points against the other prizewinners. Burn (+11 -5 =0) distinguished the cause of British chess by securing the fifth of eight prizes - while the courageous Tchigorin (+9 -4 =3), overcoming a faltering start (losses in three of his first four games), fought back to claim the sixth prize. Just outside the prize list was Schlecter, who played below his usual strength. Nonetheless, he did manage to author a number of good games. His contest with Mason was singled out for inclusion in the 500 Master Games of Chess.Condition:Hinges cracked with rubbing, shelf wear, corners bumped rubbed, some foxing else a good to very good copy.

        Diccionario de la Lengua Tarasca o de Michoacán/Aquí comienza el vocabulario en la lengua castellana y michoacana

      Mexico City: Tipografia de la Oficina Impresora de Estampillas, 1901. 518 pages with facsimiles and wood cuts. Small folio. (13" x 9 1/4") bound in three quarter leather with marbled boards with gilt lettering to spine. Compiled and re-impression under the direction of Antonio Penafiel. Inscribed by Penafiel. First published in 1559. Second edition limited to 200 copies of which this is number 5. When the Franciscans arrived in Michoacán in 1525, they found a new challenge, the language of the natives of the region, whom they came to call Tarascans was different from other native languages of New Spain. Maturino Gilberti, a Franciscan friar whose skills in the Tarascan language exceeded those of their peers. When his works were printed it was the first attempt of a systematic analysis of the language, and his vocabulary is still the best known Tarascan dictionary. Prior to his arrival in the new world, very little is know, it is thought that he may have been born in 1498. but it could have been in 1507 or 8 in the city of Poitiers, France. He studied arts and theology at the University of Toulouse and came to New Spain in 1531, shortly after his ordination. Fray Alonso de la Rea, Michoacán’s Franciscan chronicler of the seventeenth century, says Gilberti went directly to Michoacán. He quickly learned the language and was held in high admiration by the natives. It seems that his first publication was a Christian doctrine that came out in 1553. In 1556 we find Fray Gilberti in Tzintzuntzan, were Quiroga established the episcopal see and where indigenous Tzintzuntzans and other subjected Indians were forced in building the cathedral. Gilberti stood against Bishop Quiroga and the enslavement of the indigenous to build and pay for the cathedral. In the summer of 1558 Gilberti proposed several books to be printed in Mexico. He Had obtained approval for them by James Daciano, guardian (superior of the convent)of the Franciscans in Tzintzuntzan, in July. He must have acted quickly, because on August 10 received letters from Archbishop Alonso, and the Franciscan provincial authorizing the publication of his books. Within the same twelve month period the Viceroy Luis de Velasco gave his written approval. In accordance with such approvals he would published four books in Mexico during the course of less than one year. All were published at the press of Juan Pablo. It seems that Gilberti had thought that his grammar (Arte) and dictionary (vocabulary) were two parts of the same work. This is probably the reason why the dictionary does not have the usual written approvals, because the dictionary is mentioned in the letters to the principle of grammar. Gilberti died in Tzintzuntzan 1585. Condition: Inscribed on half title, spine spine, hinges, edges and corners rubbed, corners bumped. Internally very good in good binding.

      First Impression London George Newnes 1901 First British Edition, First Issue, with black coated end papers. 8vo; viii, 342pp, with a frontispiece and 11 further full-page illustrations by Claude Shepperson. Publisher's dark blue decorative cloth, the upper cover and spine stamped gilt (the first and primary binding state, of four). An unusually Fine, bright copy, the hinges uncracked, of one of the most difficult of Wells's science fiction titles to be found in collectible condition.Fine The last and perhaps most complex of Wells's early scientific romances, inspired by Jules Verne's 'Journey to the Moon.' Unlike Verne, Wells had all scientific aspects of his lunar voyage verified for plausibility by experts at the time. In 1919, the book was turned into the first of the films to be based on Wells's work. "These early 'scientific romances' remain unsurpassed for their imagination and visionary power. Where Wells's contemporaries saw him as adding the scientific imagination to nineteenth-century romance, the twentieth century regarded him as the greatest of the forerunners of modern science fiction. His tales of future evolution, alien intelligence, interplanetary warfare and technological dystopia anticipated most of science fiction's thematic repertoire."

        Mathematische Probleme.

      Leipzig: Teubner, 1901. First complete publication, extremely rare offprint issue, of Hilbert's famous and enormously influential address to the International Congress of Mathematicians at Paris in 1900 in which he set forth a list of twenty-three problems that he predicted would be of central importance to the advance of mathematics in the twentieth century. Hilbert's paper was first published in Nachrichten der Königliche Gesellschaft zur Wissenschaften zu Göttingen, Mathematische-physikalischen Klasse 3 (1900), pp. 253-97, and reprinted with additions as the offered work. "Hilbert's problems came in four groups. In the first group were six foundational ones, starting with an analysis of the real numbers using Cantorian set theory, and including a call for axioms for arithmetic, and the challenge to axiomatise physics. The next six drew on his study of (algebraic) number theory, and culminated with his revival of Kronecker's Jugendtraum, and the third set of six were a mixed bag of algebraic and geometric problems covering a variety of topics. In the last group were five problems in analysis - the direction that Hilbert's own interests were going. He asked for a proof that suitably smooth elliptic partial differential equations have the type of solutions that physical intuition (and many a German physics textbook) suggest, even though it had been known since the 1870s that the general problem of that kind does not. He made a specific proposal for advancing the general theory of the calculus of variations" (Gray). "As the nineteenth century drew to its close, David Hilbert (1862-1943), then regarded as a leading mathematician of his generation, presented a list of twenty- three problems, which he urged upon the attention of his contemporaries. They have entered the folklore of professional mathematicians; even a partial solution of one of them has given its author(s) much prestige... "The motivation was the Second International Congress of Mathematicians, held in Paris early in August 1900, which Hilbert was invited to address. He seems to have thought of the topic by December 1899, for he sought then the opinion of his close friend Hermann Minkowski (1864-1909), and again in March of another ally, Adolf Hurwitz (1859-1919). But apparently he delayed writing the paper until May or June, so that the lecture was left out of the Congress programme. However, by mid-July he must have sent it for publication by the Göttingen Academy of Sciences, of which he was a member, for Minkowski was then reading the proofs; very likely no refereeing had occurred. Hilbert spoke in the Sorbonne on the morning of 8 August 1900, not in a plenary lecture but in the section of the Congress on bibliography and history; he proposed "the future problems of mathematics," working from a French translation of his text that was distributed to the members of the audience. A summary of it soon appeared in the recently founded Swiss journal L'Enseignement Mathématique; the original seems not to have been published. For reasons of time he described there only ten problems. The full story was soon out with the Göttingen Academy; next year it was published again, with three additions, in the Archiv der Mathematik und Physik ... The Archiv version was translated in full into French for the Congress proceedings by the French mathematician and former diplomat Léonce Laugel, who added a few footnotes of his own. His translation appeared both there and as a separate undated pamphlet under the title Mathematical Problems ... "The few pages of preamble appraised problems in general and the development of mathematical knowledge as Hilbert saw it; near the end he expressed his optimism with a slogan that he would repeat in later life: 'for in mathematics there is no ignorabimus!' . The modernistic flavour of the problems lay not only in their unresolved status but also in the high status given to axiomatisation in solving or even forming several of them" (Grattan-Guinness). "The first half-dozen problems pertained to the foundations of mathematics and had been suggested by what he considered the great achievements of the century just past: the discovery of the non-euclidean geometry and the clarification of the concept of the arithmetic continuum, or real number system. These problems showed strongly the influence of [Hilbert's] recent work on the foundations of geometry and his enthusiasm for the power of the axiomatic method. The other problems were special and individual, some old and well known, some new, all chosen, however, from fields of Hilbert's own past, present and future interest" (Reid, Hilbert (1970), p. 70). In the second of these problems, Hilbert called for a mathematical proof of the consistency of the arithmetic axioms - a question that, in a later incarnation, turned out to have great bearing on the development of both mathematical logic and computer science when the problem was addressed by Gödel and Turing. "Several main branches of mathematics were impressively covered or at least exemplified by problems: number theory and higher and abstract algebra (Hilbert's two main research specialities up to that time), most of real- and complex-variable analysis, and the still emerging branch of topology. Geometry was more patchily handled; in particular, the achievements of the Italian geometers largely eluded him. Apparently untalented in languages, he had trouble reading even technical Italian. Among problems directly inspired by Hilbert's own work, the Fourteenth Problem grew out of his proofs in the early 1890s that systems of algebraic invariants always possess finite bases. However, he forgot to cite Hurwitz's recent contribution ['Über die Erzeugung der Invarianten durch Integration,' Nachrichten Königlichen Gesellschaft Wissenschaften Göttingen, math.-physik. Klasse (1897), 71-90]; he apologised to his friend in November 1900 and added a paragraph to the Archiv version. "Some problems were handled with great perspicuity. In particular, in the Fifth Problem on the theory of Sophus Lie (1842-1899) of continuous groups of transformations, not only did he pose a specific problem invoking the differentiability of the pertaining functions, but also a broader one about weakening that property. The latter is still far from a general answer ... "The importance of Hilbert's lecture was grasped quite soon after the Congress; for example, Laugel's translation of the full version was published in its proceedings with the plenary lectures although it had not been so delivered. But the reaction after the lecture was "a rather desultory discussion," to quote from the report on the Congress prepared by Charlotte Angas Scott (1858-1931) for the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society. Two comments were made. Firstly, the Italian mathematician Giuseppe Peano (1858-1932) remarked that the Second Problem on the consistency of arithmetic was already essentially solved by colleagues working on his project of mathematical logic and that the forthcoming Congress lecture by Alessandro Padoa (1868-1937) was pertinent to it... Secondly, the German mathematician Rudolf Mehmke (1857-1944) made a point about numerical methods that bore upon the Thirteenth Problem on resolving the quintic: it led to a new paragraph in the Archiv version..." (Grattan-Guinness). "Hilbert's problems ranged greatly in topic and precision. Some of them are propounded precisely enough to enable a clear affirmative or negative answer, like the 3rd problem, which was the first to be solved, or the 8th problem (the Riemann hypothesis). For other problems, such as the 5th, experts have traditionally agreed on a single interpretation, and a solution to the accepted interpretation has been given, but closely related unsolved problems exist. Sometimes Hilbert's statements were not precise enough to specify a particular problem but were suggestive enough so that certain problems of more contemporary origin seem to apply, e.g. most modern number theorists would probably see the 9th problem as referring to the conjectural Langlands correspondence on representations of the absolute Galois group of a number field. Still other problems, such as the 11th and the 16th, concern what are now flourishing mathematical sub-disciplines, like the theories of quadratic forms and real algebraic curves. There are two problems that are not only unresolved but may in fact be unresolvable by modern standards. The 6th problem concerns the axiomatization of physics, a goal that twentieth century developments of physics (including its recognition as a discipline independent from mathematics) seem to render both more remote and less important than in Hilbert's time. Also, the 4th problem concerns the foundations of geometry, in a manner that is now generally judged to be too vague to enable a definitive answer. The other twenty-one problems have all received significant attention, and late into the twentieth century work on these problems was still considered to be of the greatest importance. Paul Cohen received the Fields Medal during 1966 for his work on the first problem, and the negative solution of the tenth problem during 1970 by Yuri Matiyasevich generated similar acclaim. Aspects of these problems are still of great interest today" (Wikipedia). Here are the 23 problems enumerated by Hilbert. 1. The cardinality of the continuum, including well-ordering. 2. The consistency of the axioms of arithmetic. 3. The equality of the volumes of two tetrahedra of equal bases and equal altitudes. 4. The straight line as shortest connection between two points. 5. Lie's concept of a continuous group of transformations without the assumption of the differentiability of the functions defining a group. 6. The axioms of physics. 7. Irrationality and transcendence of certain numbers. 8. Prime number theorems (including the Riemann hypothesis). 9. The proof of the most general reciprocity law in arbitrary number fields. 10. Decision on the solvability of a Diophantine equation. 11. Quadratic forms with any algebraic coefficients. 12. The extension of Kronecker's theorem on Abelian fields to arbitrary algebraic fields. 13. Impossibility of solving the general seventh degree equation by means of functions of only two variables. 14. Finiteness of systems of relative integral functions. 15. A rigorous foundation of Schubert's enumerative calculus. 16. Topology of real algebraic curves and surfaces. 17. Representation of definite forms by squares. 18. The building up of space from congruent polyhedra. 19. The analytic character of solutions of variation problems. 20. General boundary value problems. 21. Linear differential equations with a given monodromy group. 22. Uniformization of analytic relations by means of automorphic functions. 23. The further development of the methods of the calculus of variations. A 24th problem, on the simplicity of proofs, was omitted by Hilbert but rediscovered in his original manuscript notes by German historian Rüdiger Thiele in 2000.

      Tokyo, Japan: Genroku-Kwan Photographer, R. Okamoto, 1901. Original photographs. Very Good. The 84 albumen prints measure 3.5" x 5.25" each and are delicately colored by hand. Included are studio portraits, dramatic scenes, and exterior views of men, women and children as well as many occupational scenes (painting lamps, fans, portraits), numerous views of geishas, musicians, tea ceremonies, rickshaws, fan-dancing, playing Go, market scenes, temples, marriage ceremony, water views, Tokyo street scenes, cherry blossoms, &c. Several are titled in the plate, but most are not. The photographs are of high quality with sharp focus and strong contrast. Some slight curling as usual with albumen prints, a little color offsetting onto blank versos, still quite attractive. In the photographer's original, printed envelope, somewhat worn but intact. Okamoto was a commercial photographer who played an important role in distributing albums and collections to Western audiences from his Toyko studio in the late Meiji era. [See Bennett, "Photography in Japan, 1853-1912."].

        The Inheritors:

      New York: McClure, Phillips & Co.,, 1901. an extravagant story. Octavo. Original sand-coloured cloth, spine lettered in black, front cover with large pictorial block in black, red & gilt, fore- and bottom-edge untrimmed. Housed in a custom made, brown quarter morocco solander box. Title page printed in orange & black. Spine toned (old label removed), covers showing light signs of handling (small old red ink stain on back cover, front cover lightly rubbed), inner joints cracked but sound, one or two leaves a little carelessly opened. A very good copy. First edition, second issue, with the corrected dedication (Harvey notes that "only four copies known of the first issue"), predating the UK edition by five weeks. Signed boldly by Conrad on the half-title "Joseph Conrad". Although The Inheritors is "generally regarded as a science fiction tale of a group of people from another, apparently parallel, world who call themselves The Dimensionists" (Locke) it is also related to Heart of Darkness (serialised 1899, published in book form 1902) in that Conrad and Hueffer - in their first collaboration - "satirised Leopold II [King of the of Belgians] as the greedy and unscrupulous Duc de Mersch" (Jeffrey Myers, Joseph Conrad: A Biography, 2001, p. 96). Copies inscribed by Conrad are decidedly uncommon.

        Illuminated Manuscript Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Rev. W. J. Slocum. 1876-1901.

      Waterbury, Connecticut, 1901. Full Leather. Very Good Minus. A beautiful appreciation of a cleric's career, with original verse rendered with calligraphic lettering and several original artworks. 8vo. 20 by 17.5 cm. Unpaginated, 9 leaves of very heavy card stock, with calligraphic text and illustration only on the rectos. Original artwork includes a watercolored profile portrait of the distinguished Slocum, a wash watercolor of Allegheny College (two principal buildings on the Pennsylvania campus), and four different churches which Slocum had served. Not to be minimized is the ornamental borders and other embellishments that enrich almost every leaf. Among the decoration are birds, an American flag, clover, and various sinewy Rococo decoration. The Victorian Era illuminated manuscripts we typically find are English or French; we encounter American ones far less frequently. The binding is soiled and somewhat rough. Large chip at spine foot. Other surface loss along front board edge and upper corner. The tissue guards are ragged but still present.

        Le traitement du prostatisme (hypertrophie de la prostate) à l'usage des praticiens

      de 514 et (2) pages Paris, OCtave Doin, 1901, in-8, de 514 et (2) pages, exemplaire broché, Une des rares premières monographies sur le prostatisme, ou l'hypertrophie de la prostate, et sur ton traitement chirurgical. Après une première partie consacrée à la description clinique des différentes périodes du prostatisme et des infections urinaires qui peuvent en découler, Guiard décrit plusieurs traitements, d'abord hygiéniques, puis chirurgicaux pour endiguer ou stopper l'hypertrophie. Notamment, il consacre de longues pages au cathétérisme, et en particulier, chose encore novatrice à l'époque, à l'antisepsie du cathétérisme grâce à plusieurs instruments et méthodes qu'il a personnellement développé. Quelques figures en noir dans le texte montrent des instruments d'urologie. Enfin, les 80 pages finales forment un vaste et précis vocabulaire explicatif d'urologie du tout début du XXe siècle. Bon exemplaire, à l'intérieur propre et, en partie, non coupé.

        The Serious Poems.

      London: George Newnes, 1901 - Octavo (200 x 130 mm). Contemporary art nouveau-style "vellucent" binding by Cedric Chivers of Bath in green full morocco with a hand-painted vellum vignette of an angel surrounded by doves to the front board, with the calligraphic caption "We make all melodies our care", smooth spine with gilt titles direct, decoration to spine and boards in gilt and blind, bevelled boards, turn-ins ruled in gilt, top edge gilt, marbled enpapers. Spine and front board a little faded, spine with some minor scuffing, tanning to outer edges of free endpapers, mild finger-marking to limitation page, else contents exceptionally bright. An excellent copy. Black and white frontispiece, illustrated title page, 12 plates and 4 decorative borders in the text by H. Granville Fell. Signed limited edition, number 19 of 30 copies on Japanese vellum signed by the illustrator. A beautiful example of Chivers's vellucent technique, which he developed in the early 1900s. In contrast to the earlier method used by Edwards of Halifax, the painting was not done on the underside of the transparent vellum, but on paper which was attached to the binding and covered with vellum. The surface of the vellum was then tooled in gold, thus enhancing the impressive effect.

        Studie über die Entwickelung des Dichters Victor Hugo. Der philosophischen Facultät der Universität Wien überreicht behufs Erlangung der Venia Legendi für das Gebiet der romanischen Philologie.

      Wien, Selbstverlag 1901 - VI + 66 S. OBrosch. EA. WG II 11. - Lichtschatten, Ebd.: kl. Fehlstelle a. T. fachmännisch m. Japanpapier geschlossen, Läsuren fachmännisch hinterlegt. Leichte Gbrsp. - Hofmannsthal, (1874 - 1929) , veröffentlichte schon als Gymnasiast Gedichte und fand die staunende Aufmerksamkeit der Autoren des Jungen Wien (Hermann Bahr, Richard Beer-Hofmann, Arthur Schnitzler u.a.). Seit 1892 studierte er in Wien zunächst Jura, später Romanistik, und wurde 1898 promoviert. Den Plan einer Habilitation gab er auf und ließ sich 1901 nach der Heirat mit der Bankierstochter Gertrud Schlesinger in Rodaun als freier Schriftsteller nieder. In den neunziger Jahren entstanden die Gedichte (Vorfrühling, Terzinen, Manche freilich), lyrischen Dramen (Gestern, Der Tor und der Tod, Der Kaiser und die Hexe, Der Abenteurer und die Sängerin) und Erzählungen (Das Märchen der 672. Nacht, Reitergeschichte), die Hofmannsthals frühen Ruhm, aber auch das Klischee des Ästhetentums begründeten. In erfundenen Gesprächen und Briefen gab er Essayistischem die Form der Fiktion; so handelt der lange als Zäsur im Werk, gar als Schaffenskrise mißverstandene Chandos-Brief (1902) im Medium der Sprache von der Sprache als ästhetischem und sozialem Problem -- einem Thema, das später auch seine Komödien bestimmte . Das weitgespannte Œuvre zeigt überall die Anspannung, dem Überkommenen das Neue -- etwa die philosophischen Konzepte Georg Simmels und Max Schelers oder die politischen Utopien Gustav Landauers -- zu amalgamieren. Den geistigen Austausch mit vielen Zeitgenossen bezeugen die zahlreichen Briefwechsel -- u.a. mit Raoul Auernheimer, Eberhard von Bodenhausen, Georg Brandes, Richard Dehmel, Harry Graf Kessler, Anton und Katharina Kippenberg, Rainer Maria Rilke, Jakob Wassermann, Anton Wildgans, Stefan Zweig. (DBE) - Selten, hier die im Selbstverlag erschienene Habilitationsschrift. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Flora von Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz in Wort und Bild für Schule und Haus. Neue Subscription. In 4 Bänden.

      Gera-Untermhaus, Fr. Eugen Köhler. Ohne Jahr, (1901, d.i. Titelauflage der EA von 1886-1889). - Gr.-Oktav. Reich goldgeprägtes Org.-Halbleder mit Buntpapiervorsätzen und umseitig farbigem Schnitt. Kollation: VIII, 366 S.; 1 Bl., IV, 242 S., 1 Bl.; IV, 372 S.; VIII, 577 (+1) S., mit zusammen 616 chromolithographischen Tafeln (num. 1-612 und 49.2, 50.2, 171.2, 306.2). Die Angaben auf den Titelblättern, die addiert eine Gesamtzahl von 630 Tafeln ergäben, sind wie immer falsch – das Werk ist wie vorliegend komplett. Praktisch frei von Gebrauchspuren und damit außergewöhnlich gut erhaltenes Exemplar. Vgl. Nissen, BBI 1947nd & 1947ne. Titelauflage der Erstausgabe von 1886-1889 (1947nd) – hier noch vor der Abänderung der Verlegeradresse für die zweite Ausgabe. Der Unterschied zur EA besteht einzig in einem dem Titel nun beigefügten Zusatz „Neue Subscription". Das Werk, das in vorliegendem Umfang ausschließlich die Phanerogamen inkl. der Farnkräuter, der Schachtelhalme und Bärlappe behandelt, wurde später von Walter Migula um Bände zu den Kryptogamen ergänzt (vgl. Nissen). – Die schönen und präzisen Tafeln vom Geraer Künstler und Lithographen Walter Müller gezeichnet. In seiner Hauptschaffenszeit (1880-1910) schuf er nahezu 6.000 Pflanzentafeln als Aquarell oder Lithographie für die maßgeblichen deutschsprachigen Monographien zur Botanik. 5000 g

        THE KLONDIKE A SOUVENIR

      [San Francisco, 1901. [78]pp. with 186 halftone photographs. Oblong quarto. Original illustrated wrappers, later paper backstrip. Light staining and wear to wrappers. A few marginal tape repairs, faint dampstaining, several leaves with ink manuscript notes and signatures on some photos, long manuscript notes on both sides of rear cover. Good. A rare photographic record from the heyday of the Klondike gold rush. The photographs show prospectors in the field, Alaskan railways, Alaskan scenery and wildlife, trading with Indians, underground mining scenes, game hunting, and more. The book was published by Rufus Buck, a mining engineer, and photographed by George Cantwell of Dawson, Yukon Territory. Dawson appears to be the focus, as Cantwell features numerous locations in and around the city in the book. Two editions of this work exist, the present San Francisco edition and the Seattle edition, likely from a year earlier; the San Francisco edition is the much larger of the two, with over 100 more photographs. A wonderful assemblage of Alaskan gold rush images. Rare. WICKERSHAM 4290. TOURVILLE 826. DECKER 35:6.
