      Printed by the Chiswick Press for the Hammersmith Publishing Company, 1902 Pagination: unpaginated [38 pp.] which were beautifully printed at the Chiswick Press on fine paper. Of course, the special feature of this copy is that it was also bound at Cobden-Sanderson's DOVES BINDERY.Arts & Crafts designed bookplate of Ernst Beeckman with the inscription on the front flyleaf: "For Mr. and Mrs. Beckman. June 1911" (in an unknown hand). This binding may be related to catalogue entry 582 in Marianne Tidcombe's THE DOVES BINDERY, which mentions two copies of pattern numbered 742, and being bound as "the covers are tooled with a small corner design of rose leaves," but we are unsure this fully relates to our copy so therefore inconclusive.

        Album of watercolours and photographs.

      1902 - Beautiful Watercolours of Madagascar 68 original photographs, various sizes, from 58 by 70mm to 180 by 240mm, nearly all captioned in ink & 19 watercolours, various sizes, from 200 by 120mm to 170 by 250mm, signed with initials or full name. Oblong 4to. Original green cloth, rebacked. Madagascar, 1895 - A well-executed album compiled and drawn by Henri Letrillard, a French officer serving in Madagascar, transformed by the 19 watercolours in his hand, which are made with wit and vigour and vividly illuminate the domestic life of the military administration of the island. The years 1896 to 1904 saw a series of insurrections led against the French military and other foreign influences. The French, using their experience in Indo-China used the counter-insurgency ?oil-spot? principle, where secure bases were established, from which a ring of stability would spread. Letrillard appears to have served in two such settlements, Madirovalo and Namorako, both some way inland from the north-west coast. Both Madirovalo and Namorako had defended bases, with lookout towers, surrounded by wooden ramparts and drawbridges. These stockades are shown several times in his watercolours but not in the photographs, nor in any other photographs we have seen before of Madagascar. The photographs capture scenes of daily life showing both settlers and natives, views of Diego Suarez, Vohemar, Nossi Bè [sic], Antananarivo and Mahajunga (sometimes spelt here Majunga), and one photograph of Djibouti. One large photograph is of a firing squad ?le peloton d'éxecution? at Majunga: the victim is not in the frame, but the event is well attended by onlookers. The caption records the officer in charge of the firing squad was later killed by the enemy in Lampasika. The album concludes with numerous shots of French soldiers at camp including an exceptional photograph of soldiers on a hunting trip, posing very theatrically in front of their tent. The watercolours are titled: 1. Garde Principal - Garde Civile Indigine de Madagascar Tenue d'Europe. 2. Souvenir de Madagascar - L'apperitif au Cape du Cercle a Majungae. 3. Vue generale de Madirovalo - Vue pase du Mirador du Poste - Decembre 1897. 4. Souvenir de Madagascar - Grande Rue de Madirovalo Novembre 1897. 5.

        The Pothunters

      A&C Black, London 1902 - 8vo, pp. 272. Original blue boards, lettered in silver to spine, loving cup in silver to front panel. One small and slight scuff mark to centre of spine, light wear to spine ends, corners a trifle bumped. Offsetting to endpapers, and very light and very occasional spotting to text edges. An all but near fine copy. Frontispiece and nine plates by R. Noel Pocock. First edition of the author's first book. First issue, with no advertisements, and with silver loving cup to front board. First published in serial (and slightly condensed) form in Public School Magazine, January--March 1902. '[I]n 1900, [boys' magazine] The Captain appeared, and in the first number was a serial by Fred Swainson called Acton's Feud. It began, I remember, 'Shannon, the old international, had brought a hot side down to play the school.' and if there has ever been a better opening line than that, I have never come across it. It was something entirely new in school stories -- the real thing -- and it inflamed me to do something in that line myself. If it hadn't been for Acton's Feud, I doubt if I would ever have written a school story.' (PGW to Richard Usborne, 11 January 1852, cited by Ratcliffe) Three cheers, then, for Fred Swainson: Wodehouse's first book is a vivid, funny, exciting boy's story, with all the genre's usual moralising and sentimentalism swept away, and written by someone who, at the time of its publication, was still barely more than a boy himself -- just twenty years old. Wodehouse knew his audience, and The Pothunters set his course for the rest of the decade. Not as scarce as the first books of most major authors, for some reason, but very scarce in such eminently collectable condition. McIlvaine A-1a

        [Loose Photo Album Pages]: Alabama

      Alabama. 1902-1907. Six loose album pages containing 60 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring around 3" x 3", some with captions. Near fine photos with some fading.A collection of photos beginning in 1902 revolving around a family from Alabama. The earliest photos are taken in Selma and show images of the Schuh-Miller Lumber Company including a log train, their "first office," and the lumber yard itself. The most obvious inference is that these images were taken by one of the owners of the lumberyard. The next section of photos from 1903 show the family around their home. One of these photos shows the family's children posed with their African-American maids. An uncaptioned page shows some horse drawn wagons with animals including elephants which appear to be part of a circus. Other photos show African-Americans working on a railroad and another page of African-Americans on a Selma street. A page from 1907 shows the state funeral of Senator John Tyler Morgan. These photos are captioned "hearse containing Morgan's body," "Alabama National Guard leading Senator Morgan's funeral carriage," and "temporary tent over Morgan's grave."An interesting collection of photographs kept by an Alabama family at the turn of the century. .

        Animals in Motion... An Electro-Photographie Investigation of Consecutive Phases of Animal Progressive Movements. Commenced 1872. Completed 1885.

      London, Chapman & Hall, 1902. Quer-2°. 4 n.n. + 264 S. OLwd. 2. Aufl. In engl Sprache. Mit der faksimilierten Widmung am Frontispiz. - Ebd. leicht berieben, Buchblock leicht gelockert, leichte Gbrsp. - Muybridge (1830-1904), wanderte in die USA aus und wurde dort zu einem der bekanntesten Fotografen des 19. Jahrhunderts. Seine verträumten Landschaftsbilder aus dem Yosemite Valley verkauften sich millionenfach, seine Dia-Vorträge wurden in Europa begeistert gefeiert - ein früher Starfotograf, der selbst die dunklen Seiten des Celebrity-Daseins idealtypisch vorweg nahm: 1874 erschoss er den Liebhaber seiner Frau, wurde in einem spektakulären Prozess dann aber freigesprochen. Die Jury zeigte Verständnis für den Rachedurst des gehörnten Ehemannes. Zudem kam der Mann mit dem wild wuchernden Bart bei seinen Experimenten dem Geheimnis des Bewegtbildes auf die Spur - und schrieb so Geschichte: Muybridges Bewegungsstudien von Rennpferden bildeten den Grundstein für das Kino, zwanzig Jahre vor den Brüdern Lumière. Nicht nur hatte er Wissenschaft und Technik einen entscheidenden Schritt vorangebracht. Seine Bewegungsstudien von Tieren und Menschen wurden auch zu einer Inspirationsquelle für Generationen von Künstlern. (Zitat nach Carsten Volkery). - Beiliegend die wissenschaftliche Grundlage für seine Fotografie: Étienne-Jules MAREY, La Locomotion Animale. Extrait du Traite de Physique Biologique, Tome 1er. (Paris, Masson et Cie., 1877). Mit einer eighd. Widm. von Marey. - Marey, (1830 -1904), studierte zunächst an der Ecole polytechnique in Beaume und seit 1850 in Paris Medizin. Er spezialisierte sich auf Physiologie und Pathophysiologie des Kreislaufsystems. Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt bei Carl Ludwig in Wien, kehrte er 1860 nach Paris zurück. Er war ein Pionier auf den Gebieten der Blutmessung, graphischen Aufzeichnungstechnik, wissenschaftlicher Photographie, Luftfahrt und Kinematographie. Ab 1870 erweiterte er sein Interesse auf technische Erfindungen zum Studium biologischer Bewegungsphänomene, die ebenfalls in dem vorliegenden Sonderdruck abgebildet sind.

The first trade edition in nice condition is rapidly becoming very difficult to find.

The history of the manuscript prior to 1596-1600, the date of a Vatican catalog which describes the number 3773, is unknown. A reference by Mercati (1589) to two Mexican manuscripts in the Vatican refers to Codex Rios (Vaticanus 3738 or A) but may not include Codex Vaticanus B. Like other screen-folds of the Borgia Group, Codex Vaticanus B contains a complex presentation of the tonalpohualli, the 260 day Mesoamerican divinatory calendar. The 28 identifiable sections of manuscript treat specific aspects of the tonalpohualli such as the 5 x 52 and 20 x 13 days and their associated deities as well as various series of gods, world directions, etc. The first partial publication was by Humboldt (1810), the first edition by Kinsborough (1831-48). The screen-fold facsimile in color published by the Duc de Leubat (1896) is accompanied by pamphlets describing the manuscript by Paso y Troncoso and giving its history. Seler, English translation, (1902-1903) gives detailed commentary and annotated line drawings of each page.Condition:Wrappers heavily chipped and beginning to separate at back hinge, some pages archivally reinforced and some chipping to some edges. Provenance of "Library of State" with the their stamp dated 1902 else a good copy of a scarce item.
