SARGENT, JOHN SINGER
1903. The renown portraitist renders a pen and ink self portrait line drawing to create a rebus. He writes, "Look here upon this picture and on this...[line drawing of a face]. Signed, "John S. Sargent." It's likely that Sargent was presented with the 1903 photograph by J. E Purdy, Boston, already attached to the page and asked for his autograph or perhaps asked to draw something. The page measures 7.1 x 10 inches and floats on a dark gray mat overlaid with a white mat, framed in black satin finished wood, matted and framed in museum quality materials, framed in 5/8/inch black satin wood. Frame measures 17 ½ x 14 7/8.www.schulsonautographs.com.

Astronaut Library 6 volume set plus matching seventh Title List Below Author: Illustrations by Description: Please note this listing is for seven volumes and not just the original 6 volume set. All certificates of authenticity and signatures are present. Buyers should beware that nearly an entire pallet of rejects from Easton Press found their way onto the secondary market and do not include certificates, in some cases no signature. When looking at other sellers make sure you know what you are getting and ask questions. This listing is for original volumes as issued from Easton Press and not the discards from the manufacturers that you may see elsewhere. Some books have more than one author and include more than one certificate and signature to represent each author. The series - In 1903 mankind (in his many millennia of existence) recorded his first flight at Kitty Hawk. In little over fifty years latter we were leaving our planetary orb. A few short years after that we set foot on another terrestrial sphere. These are the seminal volumes of that early history of maned space flight from the American perspective. Given they are leather bound and signed, there isn't much else out there like it from any publisher. As these brave men pass away, you can be certain there will be no more collections like this either.

Boston, Massachusetts: Smith & Thayer Co, 1903. Card. Very good. This advertising postcard for Winchester Steam Heaters measures approximately 10" x 6". It features an all-over print, titled "The Secret of Mt. Pelee" in grey, green, and red, perhaps with a little additional hand-coloring, that shows an idealized version of the volcanic eruption, the island of Martinique (a Caribbean island in the Lesser Antilles), and the city of Saint- Pierre. A flap in the center of the volcano can be lifted to reveal the force behind the eruption, a Winchester steam boiler. The card is postally used, franked with a 1-cent Franklin stamp (Scott #300) cancelled with a Boston postmark. In nice shape. Mt. Pelee's eruption in 1902 destroyed the entire city of Saint-Pierre, killing over 30,000 people. It was the third worst volcanic eruption of all time, only surpassed by those of Mouth Tambora in 1815 and Krakatoa in 1883. Precursors of the eruption began on April 23 when yellowish clouds appeared near the mountain top and cinders rained down on its sides. By the 27th, deep rumbling sounds like underground boiling water could be heard and an unpleasant sulfurous smell permeated the region. Loud explosions and minor earthquakes began on 2 May and a steady pillar of black smoke rose from volcano's throat. On the 5th the sea suddenly receded and then rushed back to shore, flooding parts of the city. That night, atmospheric disturbances disabled the electric grid, plunging Saint-Pierre into darkness. Over the next two days, underground rumblings grew louder, and volcanic lightning … [Click Below for Full Description]

If you have any questions, please Contact Me prior to buying or bidding. _________________________________________________ 1903 TALE of PETER RABBIT, FIRST EDITION, FIRST ILL. END PAPERS, 1902 COPYRIGHT! The First 2 years of the LONDON Publication of "The TALE of PETER RABBIT" have reference books about the various Printings/evolution of changes. I'm fascinated by it myself. Now, excluding the impossible First Private Printings in Late 1901 & Early 1902 from the realm of possibility for we mere mortals, the First few Original Warne Trade Printings are one of my joys to study - and even more to Find! Most collector's know that the First few Warne Printings (late 1902 - mid 1903) were done with patterned leaf end papers and had 97 pages with all illustrations in Color (Private Printings were B&W). The distinction between the printings was the Board Color. The last of these 4 printings changed "wept" to "shed". NOTE: NONE of These Printings had a COPYRIGHT DATE (on the rear of the Title Page)! Now, here is where it gets interesting!! All References deal with the Change in Format in Late 1903 from 97 pages to 85 pages with 4 fewer Illustrations, and the all important introduction of Color Illustrated End Papers. This is the book that mortals may hope to find and own...one of the first reduced Format (Some refer to it as the Second Edition because of that, but it is essentially the same book with all of the story identical to the Original with that one error corr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Washington: The Neale Publishing Company, 1903. This book is a first thus as there are NAP, but there was an edition in 1893 and the author states in the preface "Of some of the tales in this new and authorized edition the author wishes to explain that their appearance in other forms since the original edition of 1893 has been without his knowledge or assent." The book is clean, basically tight, square with sharp corners and internally unmarked, but there is a very small book plate and name stamp in the upper, fore corner of the front paste down. Although basically tight, there are no rear end papers and the mesh on the rear hinge is showing. The hinge is still pretty solid, but beginning to open at the top. It has 320, bright, clear pages. The boards are covered in brown cloth with bright gold titles stamped on the spine and front. There are white lines and a white question mark on the spine while the front board is outlined in white with a large white question mark in the center. This is a very nice looking book.

LONDON, Jack
Macmillan Company, 1903. Fine. Hardcover. First edition. Publisher's promotional pamphlet laid in. Small leather bookplate of Neva and Guy Littell on the front pastedown. A little rubbing to the painted "snow" on the spine and front board else a bright, just about fine copy lacking the dustwrapper. Laid into this copy is a Typed Letter Signed from Rockwell Kent on his Ausable Forks stationery to Guy Littell, head of R.R. Donnelley and Sons, dated 25 March 1929, which reads in full: "Dear Mr. Littell: Even before any consideration of the book that you have suggested to me to illustrate, let me express my appreciation of the indulgence you show in considering the continuance of any relations with so rank a procrastinator. I am going to try to have learned one lesson from this experience and make no plans ahead. In evidence of this let me assure you that I am concentrating upon Moby Dick and sending Mr. Kittredge, by this same mail, a big package of drawings. I have not read the 'Call of the Wild,' but will do so. Faithfully yours, Rockwell Kent." We infer from this that Littell suggested that Kent illustrate *The Call of the Wild*, a commission Kent ultimately did not accept. One of the two great novels, along with *White Fang*, for which the author seems destined to be remembered. His empathy for animals, combined with his appreciation of the Darwinian lessons of life, overcome London's occasionally simplistic political agenda, resulting in a classic tale for both children and adults.

Johnson, Isaac Charles
London: Robert Banks & Son, 1903, 1st edition. 8vo. A relatively scarce African big game title, this presents Isaac Johnson’s travels through the Sudan armed with a .303 Martini-Metford carbine as his firearm of choice. After passing Khartoum, he collected crocodile and hippopotamus. Trekking along the banks of the river Dinder, he bagged elephant as well as reedbuck, roan and leopard. While waiting in a reed blind to bag lion, Johnson suddenly discovered one next to him. “To say that the pulsations of my heart at this moment were normal, would be a falsehood, but I lay perfectly still, and contemplated the magnificent creature lying there beside me in all the quiet dignity of Leonine repose.” There are additional lion hunts near Omdurman. The appendices provide greater explanation for each of the illustration plates [Czech, African Big Game 2011, p. 143]. This copy beautifully bound in contemporary full dark green leather with four gilt rules to each board, and gilt inner dentelles. Raised spine bands with game animal motifs in each panel, the spine and a portion of the front board sunned to a rich brown color. Marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Tissue guard to frontispiece foxed with attendant lighter foxing to frontis and title page but no further. A lovely binding on an uncommon big game hunting book.

Actual construction started near Sweetwater, Texas, in 1900, and in 1903 the tracks had been constructed from Wichita, Kansas, to Fairview, Oklahoma Territory.... Alpine, Texas, where a connection was made with the Southern Pacific, was reached in 1913. By then disaster had already struck in the shape of the revolution in Mexico.

Beatrix Potter
Frederick Warne & co, 1903. Rare First Trade Edition, First Printing of 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit' Sextodecimo. Original grey paper-covered boards, titles to spine and front board in white, grey leaf-patterned endpapers. Frontispiece and 30 colour illustrations by the author.Condition A superb copy with bright clean boards with a very tidy spine and almost no rubbing or wear. The book has some minor marking to endpapers as photos detail. There is no pen marking or any dedications. I have photographed the few marks and smudges that are on a few pages but this book is really very bright and clean other than what is photographed. The binding is astonishingly compact and tight with no sign of loosening or issue. This is the First trade edition, first impression with all First printing issue points detailed below. Warne had reconsidered the "Bunny book", as they called it, following a second approach from Potter's friend Hardwicke Rawnsley, an author of children's verses who had rewritten the text in his own style. Warne were now prepared to publish it on the proviso that Potter provide colour illustrations for the entire story, however, in a slight to Rawnsley, they preferred Potter's prose to his verse. Potter agreed, knowing the book would first appear as she had envisioned, but in turn insisted that the illustrations be printed in the more expensive three-colour process, and the price must be one that "little rabbits could afford". In 1903, to make room for the introduction of the illustrated endpapers, four plates (including the one of Mrs McGregor and the pie, found here f … [Click Below for Full Description]
