        Original Pencil Drawing of Three Cats, Drawn With the Artist's Toes

      Poynette, Wisconsin, 1903. Poynette, Wisconsin, 1903. (1)ff. framed pencil drawing by Kathryn (Kittie or Kitty) M. R. Smith, measuring nine by 11.75 inches and in a contemporary frame with faux wood grain finish. Two images share a single sheet: on the left is a cat peeking out of a shoe, and on the right are two anthropomorphic cats courting over a picket fence. At the top of the page is affixed a card signed by Smith and inscribed "Poynette, Wisconsin. Written & drawn with her toes. 1903." The drawing is reproduced in the accompanying booklet, "My Life Story," a 32pp. autobiography first published in 1906. This is a later edition, and includes numerous examples of Smit's artwork and black & white photographs showing the artist combing her hair, building furniture out of wood, and writing at her desk, all with her toes. Also included is an undated photograph, probably from the 1940s, depicting an elderly Smith sitting with a woman labeled Marie Van Atta. Kittie Smith was born in 1882 into a poor Chicago family, and lost her mother to illness when she was nine years old. The following year, Smith's father, who was an abusive alcoholic, held her hands and arms against a lit stove, burning them so severely that they had to be amputated. Her father was prosecuted but found not guilty by a jury, and Smith herself was inconsistent in recounting the events, refusing to speak ill of her father. However, after her hospitalization she became a ward of the Children's Home Society of Illinois and .spent four years at the Home for Destitute Crippled Children, where she attended school and learned to write and sew with her feet. In 1896, she moved to Poynette, Wisconsin, where she lived with a private family for eight years. Smith was an entirely self-taught artist who traveled and gave demonstrations and lectures about her life. Her autobiography reveals a cheerful and perservering mentality. Smith worked with several organizations to support children with disabilities and established the Kittie Smith Company, wanting to serve as a role model. In 1913, she became the first woman to vote in Chicago, casting her ballot with her feet. By the 1930s, Smith performed as "The Armless Dynamo" at Coney Island and with Ringling Bros., Barnum & Bailey, and John Robinson's Circuses. Booklet shows some light spiling along the top edge of the cover, and the drawing has the faintest marginal dampstaining, else fine.

        Father Tuck's Post Card Painting Book

      , 1903 1903. first edition. Scarcely Found Complete and CleanWAIN, Louis. Father Tuck's Post Card Painting Book. London - Paris - New York: Raphael Tuck & Sons. Ltd., n.d. [1903]. First edition, Artistic Series No. 2530. Quarto (10 1/2 x 8 in; 266 x 202 mm). Sixteen leaves (including inside covers) comprised of eight leaves with four full color, gum arabic-heightened illustrations each and eight uncolored perforated leaves with matching illustrations to rectos as post cards with printed mailing info to versos. Designed at the Tuck Studios in London and printed at the Fine Art Works in Germany.Pictorial glossy wrappers in full color. Complete with all post cards present and uncolored; thus scarce. Unusually clean, and with just a tiny chip to lower right corner of front wrapper and a crossed out ink inscription dated 1904 on inside front wrapper. An excellent copy.Classic Wain cats (and dogs!) at play and suitable for coloring and mailing.At the end of the last century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. “He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves” (H.G. Wells).“From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…[a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!” (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).Publisher Raphael Tuck (1821-1900), from Germany, came to London in 1870 and shortly established himself as a fine art publisher. "...he saw the opportunity to move into the children's book market with volumes of high pictorial quality and outstanding production...Tuck's books were colourful and imaginative, catered for young and old alike, and covered topics ranging from ancient myths to contemporary events...On his retirement in 1882 he handed the business over to his three sons" (Haining, Moveable Books, pp. 36-37), who continued the firm's tradition of children's books of the highest quality.Dale 61.

        Recherches sur une Propriété Nouvelle de la Matière: Activité Radiante Spontanée ou Radioactivité de la Matiére. [in:] Mémoires de l'Academie des Sciences de l'Institut de France. Tome Quarante-Sixième.

      Paris: Typographie de Firmin-Didot et Cie, 1903 - Large quarto. Original blue paper-covered boards printed in black. Bookplate. Boards rubbed and marked with some wear to the corners, spine and edges tanned, spotting to edges of text block and endpapers, but contents overall clean and largely unopened. A nice, tight copy. 13 plates from photographs. First edition, first impression of the author's magnum opus, the complete record of his discovery of radioactivity and research into the phenomenon. Henri Becquerel (1852–1958) was already a leading French scientist when x-rays were discovered by Wilhelm Röntgen in 1895. The following January he attended a session of the Académie des Sciences where it was demonstrated that X-rays caused phosphoresce, leading him to suspect that other types of phosphorescence might be associated with new types of rays. His first paper on the subject, "Sur les Radiations Invisibles émises par les Corps Phosphorescents" was published the next month, and announced that uranium could produce phosphorescence after exposure to sunlight. A few weeks later he prepared several photographic plates for further testing, but when the day proved too cloudy for the experiment, placed them in a darkened drawer together with uranium salts. Upon processing the images he made the astonishing discovery that uranium could fog photographic plates even when it had not been primed by sunlight. Shortly thereafter he "discarded phosphorescence completely and declared that the emanations from uranium constituted an entirely new and unsuspected property of matter, which in his seventh paper he named radioactivité" (PMM 393). Becquerel's doctoral student was Marie Curie, and he encouraged her, and her husband Pierre, to investigate his discovery that the residue of pitchblende was even more radioactive than the uranium extracted from it. Their work led to the discovery of radium in 1898, and all three were awarded the Nobel Prize in 1903, the year of this publication and of Becquerel's retirement from active research. This important volume is "his definitive work, containing a chronological narrative of his investigations, his mature conclusions and a bibliography of two hundred and fourteen treatises on radio-activity, dating from his own first paper in 1896" (PMM 393). Two versions were published by Firmin Didot in 1903, the first bound in blue paper-covered boards as part of the series Mémoires de l'Academie des Sciences de l'Institut de France, the second a separate edition in cloth. Both are uncommon, with OCLC reporting on seven institutional copies, but particularly so the journal issue in the original boards. PMM 393; Dibner 163; Norman 158 [Attributes: First Edition]

        Cats At Play

      , c.1903 c.1903. Unrecorded EditionWith an Unrecorded Drawing by Arthur RackhamWAIN, Louis. RACKHAM, Arthur. SMITH, H. Officer. GLADWIN, May, et al. Cats At Play. London: John F. Shaw, n.d. [c. 1900-1904]. First edition, unrecorded and scarce, with no copies in institutional holdings worldwide, and not noted in the Wain or Rackham bibliographies. Small quarto (9 5/8 x 7 1/8 in; 245 x 180 mm). 160 pp., with advertising as endpapers. Illustrated throughout in black and white and color, with fifteen drawings by Louis Wain, and an unrecorded text drawing by Arthur Rackham (so initialed) on page 40.Publisher's quarter decorated cloth over full-color glazed pictorial boards, corners a little worn. A few illustrations hand-colored by a child. Closed tear to bottom edge of page. 17. Otherwise a very good copy. Early ink presentation dated "Christmas 1905" on front paste-down.This title was later issued by Blackie & Son, 1917, and Alexandria Publications, c. 1920, in what appear to be abridged editions; the Blackie & Son edition collates to only twelve pages.Anytime an unrecorded book illustration by Arthur Rackham comes to light, it's news. And the news could not be better. Buried within this book, unheralded, on page forty, is a black and white text illustration of four chickens in various states of distress as they observe, in high dudgeon and with no little annoyance, a cat within their food bucket chowing down the chicken feed - the nerve! And at the lower left of the bucket, as small as can be, are Rackham's initials as typically drawn. Latimore and Haskell, and Riall make no mention of this illustration in their Rackham bibliographies, and the Arthur Rackham Society was ignorant of it when we inquired.At the time of this book's approximate publication, Rackham had already had work published, mostly under his name with credit on the title page, providing single or multiple illustrations for, amongst others, To the Other Side (1893); Isis Very Much Unveiled (1894); The Dolly Dialogues (1894); The Zankiwank (1896); The Money Spinner (1896); Two Old Ladies (1897); Captain Castle (1897); Through a Glass Lightly (1897); Charles O'Malley (1897); The Castle Inn (1898); Evelina (1898); The Ingoldsby Legends (1898); Gulliver's Travels (1900); Faithful Friends (1901); More Tales From the Stumps (1902); The Grey House on the Hill (1903); The Greek Heroes (1903); Red Pottage (1904); and The Peradventures of Private Pagett (1904). That he would accept a commission to provide a single text line drawing to this book with no more credit than his microscopic initials should not come as a surprise. Rackham was hustling for work wherever he could find it; good reviews and regular exposure were not enough to keep him fully employed with money in his pocket. And none of the other illustrators here received credit beyond their initials or full signatures to their contributions. And so we have a previously unknown Rackham during his transitional period, when his fairies and goblins were emerging but had not yet fully vanquished the simple, pay-the-bills work of his early years.Cf. Dale 34 and 35, in Dale, Louis Wain. The Man Who Drew Cats, p. 137.

        THE GARDEN OF KAMA AND OTHER LOVE LYRICS FROM INDIA ARRANGED IN VERSE BY

      London: William Heinemann, 1903.. London: William Heinemann, 1903.. Large octavo. Publisher's cloth and boards, with remnants of printed spine label. Binding somewhat handsoiled and edgeworn, old crease in upper board, endsheets foxed, but a good, sound copy. With the Thomas Hardy Max Gate bookplate, and the somewhat later bookplate of distinguished collector Carroll Atwood Wilson. Third printing of the first edition of the author's first book. An important association copy, inscribed by the author on the half- title: "To Thomas Hardy with sincerest thanks for the hours & hours of pleasure he has given me by his works. Laurence Hope." The text is presented as a collection of translations and the male pseudonym, and the translation ruse, helped deflect some of the criticisms leveled against the poems on the basis of what Hardy described as their "tropical luxuriance and Sapphic fervour." The author's true identity and gender were revealed in 1902 in the CRITIC, and the posthumous collection, INDIAN LOVE (1905) included a portrait as confirmation. She published a second book in 1903, STARS OF THE DESERT, and took her own life in October of 1904, after the death of her husband. Thomas Hardy praised her work, and after her death, contributed her obituary to THE ATHENAEUM (19 October 1904). He endeavored to contribute a preface (eventually rejected by Heinemann) to the 1905 collection. As the first Anglo- Indian woman poet to achieve a popular readership (which persisted long after her death, and included musical settings and cinematic interpretations), Nicolson has an interesting place in literary history. It is much to be regretted that the interesting manuscript material that accompanied this book while it resided in the Wilson collection is no longer present. WILSON I, p.94.

        History of Egypt. Chaldea. Syria. Babylonia, and Assyria

      , 1903. 1903. Best EditionOf the Monumental Work on the Middle EastMASPERO, G[aston]. and G.S. Rappoport. History of Egypt. Chaldea. Syria. Babylonia, and Assyria. Edited by A.H. Sayce. Translated by M.L. McClure. Containing Over Twelve Hundred Colored Plates and Illustrations. London: The Grolier Society, 1903. Connoisseur edition, limited to 200 sets, this being no. 76. Thirteen large octavo volumes, consisting of nine volumes of Maspero, three volumes of Rappoport. and 1906 supplement by King and Hall. More than 1200 color plates and illustrations. Bound in three-quarter green Levant morocco over marbled paper boards. Spines decoratively gilt tooled with red morocco inlays. Top edge gilt. Spines uniformly sunned to warm brown. A fine set.McClure translation of Maspero's monumental Histoire ancienne des peuples de l'Orient classique (3 vols., Paris, 1895-1897), originally published in 1896 by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge.Gaston Camille Charles Maspero (1846-1916) was a French Egyptologist, the most renowned of his generation. In November 1880 Professor Maspero went to Egypt as head of an archeological mission sent there by the French government, which ultimately developed into the well-equipped Institut Français d’Archéologie Orientale. Maspero resumed his professorial duties in Paris from June 1886 until 1899. Then, at 53, he returned to Egypt in his old capacity as director-general of the department of antiquities. On his arrival he found the collections in the Bulak Museum enormously increased, and while working to expand them further he superintended their removal from Gizeh to the new quarters at Kasr en-Nil in 1902. The vast catalogue of the collections made rapid progress under Maspero's direction. This work and the increasing workload of the Antiquities Service led to an expansion of staff at the museum, including the seventeen year old Howard Carter. It was Maspero who recommended Carter to Lord Carnarvon in 1907, when the Earl approached him to seek advice for the use of an expert to head his planned archaeological expedition to the Valley of the Kings.

        Cats At Play

      , c.1903. c.1903. Unrecorded EditionWith an Unrecorded Drawing by Arthur RackhamWAIN, Louis. RACKHAM, Arthur. SMITH, H. Officer. GLADWIN, May, et al. Cats At Play. London: John F. Shaw, n.d. [c. 1900-1904]. First edition, unrecorded and scarce, with no copies in institutional holdings worldwide, and not noted in the Wain or Rackham bibliographies. Small quarto (9 5/8 x 7 1/8 in; 245 x 180 mm). 160 pp., with advertising as endpapers. Illustrated throughout in black and white and color, with fifteen drawings by Louis Wain, and an unrecorded text drawing by Arthur Rackham (so initialed) on page 40.Publisher's quarter decorated cloth over full-color glazed pictorial boards, corners a little worn. A few illustrations hand-colored by a child. Closed tear to bottom edge of page. 17. Otherwise a very good copy. Early ink presentation dated "Christmas 1905" on front paste-down.This title was later issued by Blackie & Son, 1917, and Alexandria Publications, c. 1920, in what appear to be abridged editions; the Blackie & Son edition collates to only twelve pages.Anytime an unrecorded book illustration by Arthur Rackham comes to light, it's news. And the news could not be better. Buried within this book, unheralded, on page forty, is a black and white text illustration of four chickens in various states of distress as they observe, in high dudgeon and with no little annoyance, a cat within their food bucket chowing down the chicken feed - the nerve! And at the lower left of the bucket, as small as can be, are Rackham's initials as typically drawn. Latimore and Haskell, and Riall make no mention of this illustration in their Rackham bibliographies, and the Arthur Rackham Society was ignorant of it when we inquired.At the time of this book's approximate publication, Rackham had already had work published, mostly under his name with credit on the title page, providing single or multiple illustrations for, amongst others, To the Other Side (1893); Isis Very Much Unveiled (1894); The Dolly Dialogues (1894); The Zankiwank (1896); The Money Spinner (1896); Two Old Ladies (1897); Captain Castle (1897); Through a Glass Lightly (1897); Charles O'Malley (1897); The Castle Inn (1898); Evelina (1898); The Ingoldsby Legends (1898); Gulliver's Travels (1900); Faithful Friends (1901); More Tales From the Stumps (1902); The Grey House on the Hill (1903); The Greek Heroes (1903); Red Pottage (1904); and The Peradventures of Private Pagett (1904). That he would accept a commission to provide a single text line drawing to this book with no more credit than his microscopic initials should not come as a surprise. Rackham was hustling for work wherever he could find it; good reviews and regular exposure were not enough to keep him fully employed with money in his pocket. And none of the other illustrators here received credit beyond their initials or full signatures to their contributions. And so we have a previously unknown Rackham during his transitional period, when his fairies and goblins were emerging but had not yet fully vanquished the simple, pay-the-bills work of his early years.Cf. Dale 34 and 35, in Dale, Louis Wain. The Man Who Drew Cats, p. 137.
