      - Fernandel Fernand-Joseph-Désiré Contandin dit (1903-1971) Acteur français Lettre autographe signée, Carry-le-Rouet, 29 juillet 1953, au journaliste du Figaro Paul Carrière, 1 page in-4. Joint : Une photographie de Fernandel en noir et blanc (14 x 11 cm) le représentant sur sur son bateau (légendée au dos par Fernandel : « Derrière moi L’Oustaü de la mar). Belle lettre de Fernandel en vacances, répondant à une enquête du Figaro au sujet des congés. « L’inévitable partie de boules comme tout bon Marseillais qui se respecte » « Cher Monsieur, Depuis quelques jours à ma résidence d’été, j’ai pris connaissance avec plaisir de votre lettre du 20 courant et je m’empresse de vous adresser la présente pour vous faire savoir que jusqu’au 20 septembre je reste en famille à l’Oustaü de la Mar, nom provençal qui veut dire en français « La Maison de la mer » ce qui me change du Square d’Anvers qui fait face à mon domicile parisien de l’avenue Trudaine. En vacances, je n’ai devant moi que la Grande bleue que je peux admirer du lever au coucher du soleil. Ma distraction favorite, je dirais même ma passion, est la pêche sur mon bateau « Camera » que j’ai baptisé ainsi en reconnaissance de ce que je dois à cet appareil. Au retour de la pêche, l’inévitable partie de boules comme tout bon Marseillais qui se respecte. Voici cher Monsieur la vie simple qui est la mienne jusqu’à la saison prochaine ou je reviendrai un acteur de Cinéma, en octobre pour mam'zell nitouches, après un repos bien mérité, entouré de ma femme, mes trois enfants et ma petite fille sous le soleil du midi et le chant des cigales. Avec toute ma sympathie à vous et à tous les amis du Figaro. Fernandel. P.S. : Ci-joint une photo récente ».

        Lord Curzon of Kedleston, Viceroy of India in Robes of the Order of the Star of India at the Delhi Coronation Durbar of 1903. a Vintage Photograph By Bourne & Shepherd

      Bourne and Shepherd, Photographers, Delhi 1903 - A very good example of the Bourne and Shepherd full length portrait of the Viceroy wearing court dress and his robes and decorations as Grand Master of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India, as he appeared at the Coronation Durbar in Delhi, approx 9 x 12 ins [23 x 30cm], mounted on photographer's card but with no photographer's credit. The photograph is in good condition apart from the lack of a small top right corner which could be masked without affecting the image of Curzon. This image shows Lord Curzon at the height of his achievements on the occasion of the Durbar which he planned so meticulously to impress India with the power of the King Emperor but at which he also somewhat overshadowed the King's brother, Prince Arthur Duke of Connaught. Size: 9 x 12ins [23 x 30cm]

      Hi, This lot is an 1903 Original Hardback Wisden. In Good + condition The gilt to the boards is very bright and the boards in generally are really good but if you lok at the front board at an angle in the light you can see some darkness to it. What is really nice about this book are the hinges. 1903s break all the time, this is one of two I have held that hasn't got a broken hinge. Now the front hinge has a line on it that makes it look weak but it is still strong. The rear hinge is excellent which is so rare. The yellow pastedowns in good condition some darkness around the edge of the front one as is the pageblock. Nice clean pages and excellent photoplate. Roger Hancock (brother of Tony) has his book plate to the front pastedown,

        L'Assiette au Beurre. 1903

      1903. Arguably the finest of the French satirical magazines and directly comparable with Germany's 'Simplicissimus'. Many of the finest graphic artists and caricaturists of the period are represented - Iribe, Caran d'Ache, Villon, Steinlen, Rabier, Camara, Kupka, Robida, Van Dongen, Willette, Poulbot, et cetera. From its first number [4 april 1901] 'L'Assiette au Beurre' "was recognised at home and abroad as something unusual - at once the hardest-hitting and the most visually compelling [magazine] of its type. ...The magazine, which continued until the fall of 1912, never ceased to strike out against the alleged crimes of the establishment, of the privileged few who had possession of the 'assiette au beurre'." [Stanley Appelbaum in the preface to the Dover Publication's anthology of 1978.] The satire is not only France-centred - England, Germany, Russia and others are frequently in its sights. Bound in contemporary quarter cloth and marbled boards, edges untrimmed. Very good copies.

        APRIL TWILIGHTS.

      Richard G. Badger, The Gorham Press,, Boston: 1903 - First edition of her first book; a "vanity press" production of thirty-six poems. Cather reportedly destoryed what remained of the edition in 1908. INSCRIBED, "Mr. J. W. Rankin / From an old friend / Willa Silbert Cather / New York / May Second / 1914." Cather moved to Pittsburgh in 1896 and taught at Central High School for one year. Rankin also taught there, and we assume that is where they formed their friendship. (She moved on to Alleghany High School in 1897 where she taught English and Latin, and became the head of the English department. She left Pittsburgh in 1906.) Recased with the original paper-covering laid down and with the original printed labels retained. Both labels are darkened, the front appears to have had the lettering touched up, and the spine label has been mounted upside-down (with the lettering running down instead of up) and slightly beneath its original location. Not ideal but quite scarce inscribed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        The Old Violin

      Donaldson Art and Sign Company, Covington, Kentucky 1903 - Chromolithograph. Mild crease mid-image. Image: 35 x 24; sheet size: 36 x 25 inches. Classic of American art Considered the father of American trompe l'oeil painting, William Michael Harnett began his career in 1865 when he began to practice the engraver's trade. In 1871 he moved to New York and studied at the National Academy of Design at Cooper Union. It was by the mid-1870's that he first began to exhibit at the National Academy of Design and at the Philadelphia Centennial. By 1880 Harnett had realized his lifelong dream of traveling to Europe to study in the best art centers there. He went to London, then to Frankfurt, then in 1881 to Munich where he lived for four years. Shortly after his return to the United States, Harnett painted The Old Violin, the most famous of all his single-object pictures. Its fame was spread by the chromolithograph produced by publisher Frank Tuchfarber of Cincinnati, who purchased the original oil painting from Harnett at the 13th Annual Industrial Exposition in 1886. Frank Tuchfarber was responsible for some of the finest American chromolithographs produced in the 19th century. The Old Violin is indeed an extraordinary achievement and one that was undoubtedly Tuchfarber's masterpiece. It was produced from no fewer than 17 separate stones and printed on metal, glass or paper. Copies of the print exist with either Tuchfarber's name at the lower right or, with the name of the Donaldson Art Sign Company, as in this issue. The present copy is a printer's proof that, unlike issued impressions, is not trimmed to the image; it retains its margins, with their registration crosses, color keys and ink bleeds.

        Typed Letter Signed on "National American Women Suffrage Association" stationery, 4to, Rochester,New York, October 18, 1903

      - Anthony expresses her support for co-education. She opposed educating male and female students separately because she saw that the education offered to the male sex was superior to that offered to females. As a proponent of co-education and critic of gender segregated classrooms, Anthony writes this letter to Greek scholar E. M. Tomlinson who had apparently asked for her "History of Woman Suffrage," "Vol. IV cloth." Anthony thinks she had, "presented the first three volumes to Mrs. [Abigail] Allen twenty years ago." She asks if Tomlinson has "a set of my Life and Work," explaining why he should own the books: "you ought to have it so every student could find it on your shelves when he comes to the inevitable moment of writing a composition on the question of woman's rights." She addresses co-education vs. same sex education in relation to Alfred University and the University of Chicago. "Alfred was one of the first places that I visited in 1852 and I have watched your institution with a great deal of interest ever since.I do not suppose the question of segregating the sexes has ever been thought of in your college. It is pitiful to see how Chicago University with Dr. Harper at its head is setting an example of segregation. Did you notice that instead of increasing the number of young men of the city and from the East he is 700 short of as many as he has last year? I should think that would be a lesson to him; but none are so bling [likely a typo for blind] as those who will not see, so I suppose he will not charge the lessening of the number of students to his invidious action with regard to women." She signs, "Susan B. Anthony." A strong ending to a fine letter on women's education. Several words in the section criticizing sex segregated classrooms at Chicago are underlined with ink similar to the ink she used in her signature. It is possible Anthony, herself underscored these words. Alfred University founded in 1836 in Alfred, NY, was co-ed from its beginning. Anthony refers to Abigail Allen whom she met when she lectured at Alfred in 1870. Allen supported women's rights causes as did her husband Jonathan Allen, Alfred University's second president. Anthony also mentions her trip in 1852 to her first women's rights convention in Syracuse, NY. Anthony's correspondent, Edward Mulford Tomlinson (1842-1910), was a professor of Greek at Alfred University and a University Trustee. Alfred, New York, is a town located less than 100 miles from Rochester, where Anthony and the National America Woman Suffrage Association were based.Anthony also refers to the University of Chicago's first president, William Rainey Harper (1856-1906).

        Works

      [Ballantyne Press, Edinburgh] for George Allen in London. 1903-12. - First and only complete collected edition, a superb and handsome set completed with 2 volumes of Cook's 'Life of Ruskin' (1911) uniformly bound (41 vols. in all. 'The edition was the outcome of twelve years work by Edward Tyas Cook and Alexander Wedderburn, although Cook completed the bulk of the editing. The aim of The Library Edition was to provide the complete works of Ruskin, both literary and artistic, in uniform volumes. The edition was undertaken by Messrs. George Allen, Ruskin's publishers. Illustrated by 820 wood blocks and 990 full-page plates with 120 facsimiles of MSS., the edition includes 269 plates of Ruskin's own drawings of which 200 had never before been published. Portraits of Ruskin are used as frontispieces to some of the volumes. The press work was carried out by Messrs. Ballantyne of Edinburgh, and the weight of type amounted to nine tons, whilst the printing ink weighed 1800lbs. Printed on hand-made, linen rag paper (about 87tons) with a double watermark of Ruskin's monogram and seal. The edition consisted of 2062 sets, of which 2000 were available for sale to subscribers for the full set. The first volume was published on 27 March 1903. George Allen did not live to see the completion of the edition dying on 5 September 1907, his children taking over the firm . Cook and Wedderburn provide the standard reference work for Ruskin studies.' (from the University of Lancaster's Preface to their electronic edition).'The apogee of Ruskin's immediate influence was marked by the decision to publish a monumental Library Edition of his complete works in thirty-nine volumes, edited by E. T. Cook and Alexander Wedderburn, which appeared between 1903 and 1912. Although biographically reticent and presenting a liberal version of Ruskin (as did Cook's entry in the Dictionary of National Biography), this became the foundation for future Ruskin scholarship' (Oxford DNB). 39 volumes (complete), large 8vo. Numerous plates and illustrations. Contemporary midnight blue half morocco, gilt, by Mansell. Top edges gilt, other uncut. Marbled sides occasionally slightly foxed, a few tiny scuffs or scratches. Completed with 2 volumes of Cook's 'Life of Ruskin' (1911) uniformly bound. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        1903 New York State Geologist D. Dana Luther Autograph Letters Signed with Manuscript Draft and Map

      1903 - An important group of primary manuscript material related to the geology of western New York including: The first of two letters from D. Dana Luther to John M. Clarke, dated January 1903, encloses 58 manuscript pages of Luther's draft of his paper "Stratigraphy of Portage Formation Between the Genesee Valley and Lake Erie," which was published on pages 1000-1029 of the Report of the State Paleontologist, 1902. In the letter, Luther assures Clarke "It has been re-written from my notes and the figures have been carefully revised, and some changes made so that it is now, I think substantially correct. There is only one point on which I am uncertain, and that is the correlation of the Portage and the Laona sandstones." He goes on to describe his dilemma in further detail, and expresses regret regarding the missing data that has contributed to his uncertainty. He ends by telling Clarke, "I expect you to use the material in any way that you think best." The letter also encloses a pencil diagram showing "that if the dip is the same from Forestville to Varysburg as from the lake shore to Forestville, the Laona ss would be 138 ft above the Portage at Varysburg and at a point "A" 7 miles west of Holland 128' or if Gannett is correct 225' above it." Also included here is a second letter, dated a little over a week after the first, enclosing eight manuscript pages listing the stations cited in Luther's paper; these lists were embedded in and published as part of the report. This letter also encloses "a new map of the Portage Group, as far east as the Naples Valley." The map is hand-drawn on coated linen, in black, blue, and red ink, though as Luther noted in pencil, he still needed to mark most of the Oatka Valley stations. There is also one line still marked in pencil, with a question mark at the center, as Luther says again in this letter, "I am in doubt as to the correlation of those beds." The map does not appear to have been used in the publication of the report, though Luther "tried to show all of the sub-divisions mentioned in the paper." Both letters are written on 10.5" x 8" 'standard school paper' and neatly signed "Yours truly, D.D. Luther." Both segments of the manuscript draft report are written on that same paper, with Luther's pencil diagram on plain, unlined paper measuring approximately 7.75" x 9.75". The map, on light blue/gray coated linen, measures approximately 10.5" x 26.25" Also includes the postally used transmittal envelope, measuring approximately 10" x 12.5" Item #A00675 Daniel Dana Luther (1840-1923), was a teacher, business owner, and prominent community leader in the area of Naples, New York. He had a true, lifelong passion for geology and paleontology, and in 1891 he became associated with the New York State Museum. He was appointed a Field Geologist in 1900, a position he kept until 1915, mapping much of the geology of western and central New York in that time. He is best known for discovering the "Naples Tree" - a 380 million year old fossilized tree from one of the world's earliest forests. John M. Clarke (1857-1925) was Luther's nephew. Unlike his uncle, he was able to obtain a college degree in geology. He taught for a number of years before becoming an assistant to James Hall at the New York State Museum in 1886. On Hall's death in 1898, Clarke became New York's State Paleontologist.In 1904 he was also named State Geologist, Director of the State Museum, and Director of the Science Division at NYSED.
