        20 Glass plate negatives of Western Australia early in the history of the W.A. gold rush as well as family images of Shockley, his family and home, housed in two boxes

      1901. William Shockley was an American-born mining engineer, surveyor, and amateur photographer and a contemporary of Herbert Hoover, also a mining engineer involved in mining in Western Australia & China. One can imagine a friendship between Shockley's and the Hoover's- all 4 of them had an interest in geology and mining. May Bradford Shockley was a Missouri-born mining surveyor in Nevada and federal deputy surveyor of the mineral lands, a highly unusual profession for a woman in this period. Lou Henry Hoover, who grew up as something of a tomboy in California, was enrolled as Stanford University's only female geology major in 1894, where she met Herbert Hoover. They delayed marriage plans until she completed her education and he pursued his mining career in Western Australia, where gold had recently been discovered. During their time in China, she became proficient in Chinese. She was also well versed in Latin; she collaborated with her husband in translating Agricola's De Re Metallica, a 16th-century encyclopedia of mining and metallurgy. The Hoover translation was published in 1912, and remains in print today as the standard English translation. The slides are principally of Western Australian mining sites. Measuring 4 1/4 x 3 1/2", they are housed in the original brown glossy papered slipcase. One bears the original French label by A. Lumiere, Paris. The subjects are: 1. Five men in a flat barren landscape. These men appear to be visiting dignitaries. The one on the left may possibly be Premier Newton Moore. This image includes an older white-bearded man wearing a white pith helmet and wearing a jacket, vest and tie. He is obviously not a miner, but we were not able to ascertain who he might be. 2. Two men dryblowing gold, one with a pan, one with a box. An iconic image. 3. Seven men in front of a bush hut, with a water bag. (This is an image of miners, as well as the older white-bearded man in the pith helmet and wearing a jacket, vest and tie.) 4. Two wooden sheds in scrub with mine head behind. (with more work, it could probably be determined which mine this is, as the mining district is known, Laverton.) 5. One man in front of two trees in the scrub. 6. A laden stage coach in front of a shop in the bush. An iconic image. 7. Men in the mulga bush near a willy willy (whirlwind) or small fire (?). 8. Mine head with bush hut. (Similar to #3, alternate view of #4). 9. One naked white man about to dive in a bush lake. (A lake in the gold fields would be an extraordinarily rare occurrence.) 10. Mine head, horse and buggy and two wooden sheds (see #4 & 8). 11. Two laden camels with three young camels. 12. A pair of aboriginal men with ritual scarring on their backs (their backs to the camera.) (housed in a cellophane wrapper numbered "10", outside of the box.) A rare and iconic image. 13. Camel drawn water wagon. (housed in a cellophane wrapper numbered "5" , outside of the box.) 14. Horse buggy in lightly treed country. 15. Wooden settler's hut in lightly forested area, trees nearby are ring barked. Stone fireplace. Other slides, mostly family views of Shockely (standing in front of his grand looking library, his piano, gardening) & his small son. These are in the original numbered slide box manufactured by by A. Lumiere & Ses Fils, Lyon, "Plaques au Gelatino-Bromure d'Argent." With blue china marker writing on the label, the box covered with glossy brown paper, somewhat rubbed. The box is numbered and titled "Sigma". 16. Camel in front of a stone wall. The stone houses behind look like Western China. 4 1/4 x 3 1/2". Family views, size 6 x 4". 17. Portrait of Shockely in front of book lined shelves & typewriter 18. Piano in his refined drawing room. 19. Small boy in bath, wrapped in a towel. 20. Shockely, wearing a hat and digging in the garden of a large refined home. There are prints for #17-20, made by Peter Howard in 2004, with a credit card slip signed by Peter. Extraordinarily rare. Period images by identified photographers are very scarce. Shockley's archives are housed at Stanford; a large collection of his images, which include many of China, India and Western Australia, are housed at Duke University. Of the thousands of photographs at Duke, they hold only 160 or so glass plate negatives.

Eccentric SF "romance novel, set in Chicago, New York, London and Bermuda in the years following the Civil War. The plot is centered around a psychologist and inventor, who through the use of hypnotism and 'hydro-electric vibratoners' attempts to control young women to submit to his whims. He becomes infatuated with a young girl under his tutelage, tricks her into submitting herself for an experiment with his 'vibratoners' and marries her once she is under his control. Unbeknownst to him, she is his daughter from a previous liaison. As the story unfolds, she elopes with her own brother, and becomes free from the mind control she was subjected to. At the novel's climax, she, having plotted her revenge, confronts the evil doctor; he, overwhelmed with desire for her, attempts to take her by force by once again using the 'vibratoners' which she has rigged to backfire. The novel closes with the doctor being electrocuted, and his tongue bursting into flames while the heroine calmly watches." (Reading note courtesy of Lorne Bair Rare Books, Inc.).

        THE INHERITORS

      1901. An Extravagant Story. New York: McClure, Phillips & Co., 1901. Original tan cloth pictorially decorated in black and orange. First Edition of the first collaboration between Conrad and Hueffer -- a tale that combines science fiction with political satire, somewhat in the same vein as had recently been popularized by H.G. Wells. This is regarded as Conrad's only science fiction tale -- though the work is largely Hueffer's.~The "I" narrator is Etchingham Granger, a writer of impeccable pedigree whose fortunes are none too good and who is forced to take on several disagreeable commercial assignments. Early on, he meets an extremely attractive young lady who is a "Fourth Dimensionist." This tribe of "new people" -- there is a dystopian pattern here -- lacks feelings and normal or human responses. They, and she, are dedicated to becoming the inheritors of the earth because of their superiority in intellect, control and deception. In particular, they plan to undermine public confidence in its institutions, which turns out to be fairly easy given the nature of the men who govern. The political satire lies here: everyone has a price and everyone is self-serving regardless of the seriousness of the issues. There is no "public policy" among public men. [Karl]~For copyright reasons the American edition was published first; the English edition was then produced from the American plates, and was published about five weeks later.~This is the usual first published state, with the cancel dedication leaf (there exist about six known copies with the uncorrected error "To Boys and Christina"). This copy's pictorial front cover has the sky uncolored (i.e., tan cloth color) rather than in gilt -- priority uncertain, but the few pre-publication copies have the gilt sky. The volume is in very good to near-fine condition -- scarcely any wear, but with quite minor cover soil (as is typical for this light-colored cloth). Cagle A6a.2, binding b.

      BERLIN: GEORGE BONDI, 1901 Very good copy of the Book as a Work of Art in bright gilt stamped cloth cover of German first edition of Stefan George's Translations of Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal. Published by Georg Bondi in Berlin. the volume is a prime example of the overlapping of pure text and text carrier which Stefan George developed along with his own type as an element of his concept of "the poetological." This approach to publishing was inspired by his personal contact with the Paris circle of symbolists around Stéphane Mallarmé and  the French symbolist concept of "L'art pour l'art".

        Les Poëtes Chansonniers Montmartrois.

      [Paris, 1901?] 20” by 15”, matted and framed. An intriguing and quite charming painting of a cafe scene in Belle Époque Paris. Research has failed to yield anything about the artist, although he has signed his name (Gaston Dumoniel?), dated his work 1901, and even given the precise name and address of the cafe. Le Grand Manège at 4 Rue Buffault, Faubourg Montmartre, was once popular with early bicyclists (although no one present here appears dressed for the sport) and was positively reviewed in La Bicyclette of April 13, 1894. Provenance: Private collection, California.

        Adolf Münzer: Der ungalante Papa (Originalzeichnung)

      1901 - Kohle, Aquarell und Deckweiß auf Papier 53,8 x 42,5 cm Veröffentlicht:  Jugend. Jahrgang 6 (1901), Heft 10, Seite 151 Text: „Nein ich bin dem Papa nicht mehr gut! Er hat mich heute auf die Finger geschlagen, und ein Herr darf eine Dame nicht schlagen.“ Biografie: Adolf Münzer (1870 - 1953). Adolf Münzer zählt neben Reinhold Max Eichler, Fritz Erler und Leo Putz zu den Hauptvertretern der Münchner Künstlervereinigung „Die Scholle“. Deren Mitglieder kennen sich aus der Studienzeit bzw. durch die Mitarbeit an der Zeitschrift Jugend und sind zwischen 1899 und 1911 als Ausstellungsgemeinschaft im Münchner Glaspalast sowie in der Münchner Secession vertreten. Obwohl die Gruppe kein festes Programm hat, sondern sich als lockere Künstlergemeinschaft versteht, in der sich jeder auf seiner eigenen Scholle behauptet, verkörpert sie eine der fortschrittlichsten Strömungen der Münchner Malerei um 1900. Nach der Ausbildung zum Dekorationsmaler sowie dem Besuch der Kunst- und Gewerbeschule in Breslau zieht Münzer nach München, wo er von 1890 bis 1897 an der Akademie studiert. Da er seinen Lebensunterhalt nicht als freischaffender Maler verdienen kann, zeichnet er ab 1896 für die Zeitschrift Jugend und steigt innerhalb weniger Jahre zu einem ihrer prominentesten Mitarbeiter auf, dessen Beiträge häufig auf der Titelseite erscheinen. Bis in die 1930er Jahre hinein bleibt Münzer dem Blatt verbunden, wohingegen seine Tätigkeit für die Satirezeitschrift Simplicissimus nur von 1896 bis 1900 andauert. Die Mitarbeit an der Jugend verschafft Münzer nicht nur regelmäßige Einkünfte, sondern wirkt sich auch auf seine künstlerische Entwicklung aus. Dank finanzieller Unterstützung des Herausgebers Dr. Georg Hirth hält er sich zwischen 1900 und 1902 zu Studienzwecken in Paris auf, wo sein Zeichenstil unter dem Eindruck der französischen Plakat- und Illustrationskunst an Leichtigkeit und Eleganz gewinnt. In den kommenden Jahren zeichnen sich Münzers Darstellungen, die meist Szenen aus dem Leben der Frau thematisieren und im Milieu des Großbürgertums bzw. der Bohème angesiedelt sind, durch weiche Konturen, reiche Binnenzeichnung und intensive Farbgebung aus. Wie die meisten Mitglieder der Scholle hat Münzer ein ausgeprägtes dekoratives Talent und möchte dieses in großformatige Tempera- und Ölbilder für öffentliche Gebäude umzusetzen. Nach einigen Anläufen bringt die 1908 in München gezeigte „Ausstellung für angewandte Kunst“, auf der er mit acht Gemälden zu einem Repräsentationsraum für Konfektion vertreten ist, den ersehnten Durchbruch. 1909 erhält Münzer eine Professur an der Düsseldorfer Akademie und führt bis zu seiner Emeritierung 1931 zahlreiche Wandmalereien in ganz Deutschland aus. Je nach Aufgabenstellung sind sie heiter-erotischer bzw. allegorisierend-mythologischer Natur und werden durch Klarheit in der Komposition sowie Strenge in der Form bestimmt, wobei Raffinesse und Ausgewogenheit im Kolorit charakteristisch sind. Durch Ausstellungen, Kunstkritiken und nicht zuletzt die Jugend wird auch dieser Teil von Münzers Oeuvre weithin bekannt. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        ANTHONY'S PHOTOGRAPHIC BULLETIN

      NY: E. & H.T. Anthony & Co, 1901. First edition. 8vos. Each monthly issue approximately 30 pp., illustrations in text, and photographic frontispiece with tissue guard starting in the 1880s. As follows: Vol. 1, No. 7, 1870, partially disbound with chipped wrappers, in cloth case; Vols. 2-3, 1871-1872, complete, bound in cloth; Vols. 4,5, 7, 1873-1874, 1876, complete, original wrapper in cloth case; Vol. 16, No. 1, 1885, lacking front wrapper, in cloth case; Vol. 17-18, 1886-1887, complete in original wrappers, in cloth case; Vols. 19-28, 1888-1897, complete, bound in cloth; Vols. 29-30, complete, bound in half calf; Vols. 31-32, complete in original wrappers, in cloth case. A near complete, but broken run. Compiled from a variety of sources, a few volumes are ex-library, some show modest dampstaining, and some individual issues are lacking the front wrapper, or with tears and chips. From 1885 - 1893 the frequency of publication shifted from 12 monthly issues to 24 issues yearly. Largely concerned with the technical aspects of the medium, reviewing processes and products, manuals for both the amateur and the professional photographer, understandably since Anthony had been a distributor of photographic materials and publications since the 1840s. First published in 1870 under this title and ceased in 1901. Previously published as "Anthony's Bulletin of Photographic Invention and Improvements." Merged in 1902 with "The Photographic Times" to be published under the new title: "Photographic Times Bulletin" which was then absorbed by "American Photography" in 1916.

        COLLECTION OF EIGHTY-FOUR (84) HAND-COLORED PHOTOGRAPHS BY THIS JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHER: Tokyo, circa 1901

      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."].
