COULLAUD Henry
Two albums containing 50, 127 original photographs respectively, mostly silver gelatine prints, various sizes (between 17x12cm and 6x8cm). Paris/Tientsin, 14th August 1900-September 18th, The photos were taken between 1900 and 1901 by the French military doctor Henry Coullaud (1872-1954). As young military doctor Coullaud volunteered to join the Campaign in China. He left on 19 August 1900 on board the Alexandre III as part of the 1st Batallion of an Infantry Regiment. The beginning of the first album consists of a photo of the crew of the ship, followed by images of the stops made along the journey: Port-Said, Djibouti (with a nice shot of the Cafe du Louvre), and Singapore before reaching Northern China and the harbour at Tong-Kou (Tanggu port) forty-two days after leaving Marseilles. The French regiment then proceeded to Pao-Ting-Foo (Baoding), before settling in Ting-Tcheou (Dingzhou). Later they moved on to Tcheng-ting-fou (Zhengding fu), and Ta-kou (Dagu). All of the images in Album 1 contain larger prints and most paint a positive picture of French-Chinese relations: They cover official engagements, military parades, French celebrations on July 14th, and staged portraits of high-ranking individuals, both of Chinese dignitaries and French officers. Coullaud clearly used his medical expertise to help Chinese patients and there is an extraordinary image of him inspecting a Chinese woman lying on a table outside her home. Coullauds regiment does not seem to have been directly involved in the fight against the Boxers but one photo shows heads of Boxer rebels displayed in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Voltaire [François-Marie Arouet]; Smollett, Tobias (Notes, Revised and Modernized); Fleming, William F. (Translator); Leigh, Oliver H.G. (Introduction); Morley, John, Rt. Hon. (Critique and Biography)
Paris, London, New York, Chicago: E.R. DuMont, 1901. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. No. 658 of 660 copies, octavo size, each volume is approx. 300 pp., illustrated. François-Marie Arouet (1694-1778), or the man known as Voltaire, was a prolific writer, whose works are complete in these 42 volumes, a limited finepress edition, with thick untrimmed pages that practically burst from the covers. An appropriate vessel for the loud and subversive author "le roi Voltaire" who was at one time arguably the most celebrated and most hated man in Europe. Voltaire's large and varied body of work includes over 20,000 letters, 49 plays, and numerous philosophical and political essays, histories, poems and short-stories. The self described "innkeeper of Europe", beloved especially to the British people, wrote much about justice, reason and tolerance. His ironic and subversive work often brought him into dangerous proximity of conflict with religious and political authorities, especially when it came to his highly opinionated histories. His writings had a great impact during his lifetime, so much that his body had to be smuggled out of France at the time of his death to avoid a heretic's burial. By the time of the French Revolution, many of his lines advocating freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and separation of church and state had developed into iconic slogans. Unlike many authors, Voltaire's variegated wisdom was spread throughout all his writing, from a short letter to a long history, he had a large circle of friends, and his likeness was depicted by ma … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Calligraphic Manuscript] Gertrude Auld Thomas
[n.p.], 1901. Near Fine. Illustrated 8 page manuscript poem. Limp calf with minor rubbing to crown and foot of spine; silk endpapers. Robert Browning's poem Porphyria's Lover, written in the calligraphic hand of Gertrude Auld Thomas and richly painted in purple, pink, green, and blue watercolor. An excellent example of women's gift exchange in the period, the title page states "This is then a little labor of love for Emma Auld Waldron by her sister Gertrude Auld Thomas, 1901." Near Fine. Calligraphy and painting were important activities for educated women at the turn of the century. As these women gained power in consumer culture as readers and art collectors, they also publicly practiced good taste and displayed their educations by crafting pieces of their own. "Copying verses in beautiful calligraphy sheltered women from the charge of an extravagant and corrupting interest in purely commercialized forms of culture...this personal, tactile involvement with decorative objects remained a powerful index of women's gentility" and a measure of their literary and artistic knowledge (di Bello). This particular calligraphic manuscript was created by Gertrude Auld Thomas, a famed American soprano who performed on both the East and West coasts. Contemporary reviews praised her "singularly sweet, pure, and sympathetic voice" that enlivened a reportory with a flair for the tragic and dramatic, including arias from works such as Madame Butterfly (The Capitol).

Scorecard of match : Scorecard The letter written on London County Cricket Club, Crystal Palace letter head and dated 3rd May 1901 - Excellent ink signature of Grace. There is a Wisden link to this lot, I purchased the letter to go with my 1916 paperback as I thought I would never find the hardback and this piece would make my 1916 a bit more special (it being the Grace Edition) but I do have a hardback now so selling this letter for someone else to treasure.

Peking, 1901. Very good overall. A rare and significant large Japanese woodblock map of Peking (Beijing), issued just after the suppression of the Boxer Rebellion. Centered on the Forbidden City, the map depicts Peking following the multinational suppression of the Boxer Rebellion (Yihetuan Movement) of 1900. The map was issued to illustrate the areas of occupation associated with each of the powers in the Eight Nation Alliance. The Boxers were Chinese displaced by natural disasters and angered by the interference of the West through their opium trade and Christian missionaries. Eventually supported by the Qing government army, they proceeded to attack foreign settlements and Chinese Christians, including Peking's Legation Quarter. An alliance of foreign troops, including Russians, Japanese, Americans, British, French, Germans and Austrians was formed to protect their countrymen. After much bloodshed, the legations were able to prepare a tenuous defense and found themselves besieged. Relief came in the form of a 20,000 man army representing the Eight Nation Alliance, which defeated the Boxers, lifted the siege of the Legation Quarter, and occupied Beijing as well as a number of other northern Chinese cities. The atrocities and looting that ensued at the hands of the occupying forces are well documented. This map is essentially a later edition of one issued by the Qing for administrative purposes in or around 1867 (the title of that map translates roughly as Premier Full Map of the Capital City's Interior and Exterior.) The Japanese seized the wood blocks during the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mucha, A. M.
Paris, Librairie Central des Beaux Arts, 1901. Two plates. Folio (46 x 33 cm). Original prints.l A fine set of print from Alphonse Mucha's quintessential Art Nouveau book, "Documents décoratifs". Alfons "Alphonse" Maria Mucha (1860-1939) was a Czech decorative artist, who wanted to bring aesthetic values into arts and crafts. He invented the "Mucha Style" which soon became known as Art Nouveau. His work immediately became immensely popular and remained very sought-after ever since. This set of plates show two sides of this gifted artist: his ability to produce fine images in lithography, but also his practical design skills, in this case for cutlery and other silverware. Edges with minimal wear, otherwise fine. Very rare, especially in this excellent state.

SUWARROW MURDERS
Privately typed for the Polynesian Society by William Churchill Late Consul-General of the United States for Samoa and Tonga.Carbon typescript. 32pp. New York, 1901. [Bound with] Original depositions giving three accounts of the murder of three white men at Suwarrow atoll in the Cook Islands. Manuscript. 16pp. Blue legal folio, Upola, Harbour of Apia [Samoa], December, 17, 1858 & 11 November 1858. 8vo. Half calf over marbled boards, gilt lettered cover label ?What Befell at Suwarrow? A fascinating account of a murderous episode in the Pacific. In his introduction, the late Consul-General for Samoa and Tonga, William Churchill, relates the discovery of the manuscript account in the Conulate's archives. Accounts are by Samuel Sustenance, owner of the schooner Dart, who brought the men to Suwarrow to pearl dive; Mautuhu and Tauharangi, two Penryhn islanders; and Tairi, the Missionary teacher. Joseph Bird, an Englishman, and Thomas Charlton, an American were accompanied by about 18 Penryhn Islanders and their women. They encountered a Frenchman, Jules Tirel, who'd arrived a few days prior. The general consensus is that Bird was the most offensive, yet the accounts differ in laying responsibility for the murders. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Ledger sections at the rear of each diary are used to record income and expenses.As an archive, the diaries cover many topics, including daily weather reports, JWP's job news, family news (even such personal notes as his smoking a cigar, shaving, getting a haircut, how many valentines Horace received, Horace's school report-card grades, what pieces Horace is learning on the piano, what "required reading" Horace does in school, etc.). They also contain much local town news: weddings-esp. in June--, births, funerals-including several children, one hit by a street car and one by lightning, town-wide celebrations and parades, fires, election results-including a long-drawn out contested mayoral election in 1907 where "Dagos and Negros" are suspected of voting illegally--, the 40th annual G.A.R.

ROOSEVELT, THEODORE
Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1901. First edition. EXTREMELY SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF ROOSEVELT'S FIRST STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS, SIGNED BY ROOSEVELT ON THE HALF-TITLE. "On September 6, 1901, a deranged anarchist named Leon Czolgosz shot [President William] McKinley at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. McKinley died eight days later, and Roosevelt was sworn in as the 26th president. Only 42 years old when he took office, he was the youngest president in the nation's history, and his youth and vigor immediately transformed the public image of the presidency. From the time of his First Annual Message to Congress in December 1901, Roosevelt expressed the progressive belief that government should mediate between conflicting forces (including capital and labor, isolationism and expansionism and conservation and development) in order to stabilize American society" (History, A&E). Roosevelt begins the address by paying tribute to McKinley ("It is not too much to say that at the time of President McKinley's death he was the most widely loved man in all the United States"), emphasizing the tragic implications of the assassination ("The blow was aimed not at this President, but at all Presidents; at every symbol of government") and encouraging the country against the forces of anarchy. ("This great country will not fall into anarchy, and if anarchists should ever become a serious menace to its institutions, they would not merely be stamped out, but would involve in their own ruin every active or passive sympathizer with their doctrines.

Gerrard Bros. [1901], Dublin. Original staple-bound pink printed wraps; pp. 8. In original mailing envelope from Michael Papantonio First Editions and Rare Books (509 Madison Ave., New York, c. 1939), addressed to R. H. Pitney. One of only 85 copies printed. This is the first edition of Joyce's second published work, and his first appearance in a book. (His first published work was a review of Ibsen's "When We Dead Awaken," published in the Fortnightly Review the previous year.) Joyce's essay, written when he was a nineteen-year-old student at University College, Dublin, is an attack on the Irish Literary Theater and its founders -- Yeats, Moore, and Martyn. He accuses them of abandoning the high ideals of the Theater's founding, and catering to popular tastes, becoming "the property of the rabblement of the most belated race in Europe." Issued in "Two Essays," along with "A Forgotten Aspect of the University Question," by F. J. C. Skeffington, Joyce's school friend, advocating for equal university rights for women. Both essays were first rejected ("refused insertion by the Censor") by St. Stephen's the newspaper of the University College, Dublin, at which point Joyce and Skeffington gather the 2 pounds, 5 shillings necessary to have the essays printed at a local stationery shop. /// The provenance is also interesting.
