        Large Collection of Professional Photographs of the Astor Hotel in Times Square

      New York, 1904-c.1950s. Hardcover. Very Good+. Collection of 182 b/w or sepia photographs (silver prints); ranging in size from about 7x9 to 11x14 inches; mounted in two albums, or loose, sometimes with heavy cardstock mount or paper backing (from having been removed from an album, see below); offers exteriors views of the hotel from construction to completion, and interior views of private and public rooms in the hotel, from its construction in 1904 to a later remodel in perhaps 1935 (the hotel was remodeled again in 1949, but these images don't seem to extend that late -- there are just a few images showing the Sheraton-Astor, when it was briefly bought and renamed in 1954). The collection breaks down as follows: Large album of 42 mounted photographs from around the newly-opened hotel, circa 1904, almost all credited in mount and negative to Joseph Byron of New York, a few to Drucker & Co. (half morocco oblong folio; lacking front board, several photographs removed ) /// Large album of 33 later Hotel Astor photographs, c. 1933, linen-backed, signed in the negative by "Byron Co." /// 12 large Byron photographs of the hotel, about 11x14 inches, most mounted, most worn and/or faded /// Disbound album of 28 Drucker & Co. photographs of the hotel, some showing second-phase construction, 1908 and undated /// Group of 67 8 x 10 inch photographs of the hotel, some of them after being renamed the Sheraton-Astor in 1954, by William F. Howland (20), Empire Photographers (10), and miscellaneous or unknown photographers (37), circa 1920s-1950s. Built at a cost of $7,000,000 on land leased from William Waldorf Astor (great-grandson of John Jacob Astor, the fur trader), the 11-story, 35,000-square-feet Hotel Astor was designed in the French Renaissance "Beaux Arts" style by architects Charles W. Clinton and William H. Russell, who imitated many features from the old Waldorf-Astoria on 34th Street. The Hotel Astor opened in September 1904, dazzling guests with its enormous public rooms, most decorated with themes. A year later the elaborate roof garden was opened. The former site of the hotel, the block bounded by Broadway, Astor Plaza, West 44th Street, and West 45th Street, is now occupied by the high-rise 54-story office tower One Astor Plaza.

        A Selection from the Collection of Drawings by the Old Masters Formed by C. Fairfax Murray

      Privately Printed, London 1904 - Charles Fairfax Murray, born in England in 1849, possibly received early training in art from Richard Gainsborough Dupont. A commissioned portrait painter by the age of 16, he became a protege of John Ruskin, and joined Edward Burne-Jones as a studio assistant and became a part of the Pre-Raphaelite movement at the time. Soon he was also assisting William Morris and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. In 1873 he made a second trip to Rome at Ruskin's expense to copy the Botticelli frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. He stayed in Italy for 13 years, first in Siena and then in Florence, copying for Ruskin, painting portraits and acting as an agent for the Director of the National Gallery and other private collectors. He built his own Italian Old Master collection. Returning to England, he continued his work as a portrait painter, and resumed his friendships with Burne-Jones, William Morris, and their circle in the Arts & Crafts Movement. He also helped develop some great American art collections, described by Lockett Agnew as "the finest judge of art in the world." In 1903 as a result of a rheumatic hand, Murray gave up painting, but continued to be a renowned agent, collector, and connoisseur. He just missed being named the Director of the National Gallery. In 1909, having bought and sold several lots of rare books and collections to museums and galleries, he made his major sale -- his personal collection of 1400 Old Master drawings, to American banker John Pierpont Morgan for a sum almost equivalent to £3,000,000 today. A rare copy in that after the sale, Morgan purchased remaining copies and had his own title page tipped in. Henry John Bell, whose bookplate is attached to the front pastedown, was known as the foremost collector of Dove's Bindery bindings while its founder, Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson was still living (Tidcombe, The Doves Bindery, p. 107). This copy was bound by the French binder Lucien Broca. Unpaginated. Folio. Some 150 artists are represented from the schools of Giotto, Pollajuolo, Florentine 15th Century, Perugino, Lombard School 15th Century, Parmigiano, North Italian, Venetian School 18th Century, Rembrandt, the Dutch School, Flemish School, Early German, and more. Black & white and sepia-tone illustrations with no foxing. Green cloth cover has fine dark brown leather on corners and spine, set off with gilt rules. Spine has five raised bands with gilt rules and boxes. Gilt title reads "Murray Collection of Drawings 1905." There is a trace of shelfwear on back of spine at bands and upper and lower ends. Corners very lightly bumped, and light wear shows on bottom edge. Endpapers are glossy marbled paper in shades of blues and browns. Bookplate of Henry John and Minnie Caroline Bell on front pastedown. After a two-page introduction and a 23-page index, the book shows 292 exquisite full-page plates, executed by MM. Braun, Clement & Cie, Paris and Dornach. This handsome volume, with black and white or sepia toned plates, is a rare treasure for the collector. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Cabbages and Kings

      New York: McClure, Phillips & Co, 1904. First Edition. Hard Cover. First issue, with "McClure, Phillips & Co." imprint on spine. A very near fine copy of author's first book, showing little or no wear, and quite scarce as such. The phrase "Banana Republic" was coined here and is heard today, more than ever. The title is taken from a poem in "Through the Looking glass" by Lewis Carroll: "The time has come," the Walrus said, "To talk of many things; Of shoes and ships and sealing-wax, And cabbages and kings." (The Walrus and the Carpenter). "The incidents embracing as they do, a variety of subjects, hang loosely together, so loosely in fact, that at times one finds no apparent connection between them at all, and yet in the end one sees how each is intimately related to the other......Written by a less able hand than O. Henry's the book might have been a sad jumble, perhaps comprehensible to none but the Walrus - but as it is, one finds a joy in its every obscurity." (Contemporary New York Times Book Review). A beauriful copy; armorial book plate.

Light evidence of bookplate removal from front pastedown sheet, else near fine in unfaded pictorial binding. The author, who was under indictment for bank embezzlement in 1896, fled to Honduras, where he was later jailed, and drew on his experiences there to compose the stories in CABBAGES AND KINGS. "In Coralio - a sultry coastal town in the volatile banana republic of Anchuria - a disparate cast of vagabonds, hucksters, mercenaries, merchants and consuls is busy plotting, scamming, drinking, loving or trying to forget the past. Each has his own tale to tell and his own particular reason for washing up on these tropical shores - and all have a part to play as this masterpiece of twisting narrative begins to unfold...."

        PHOTOGRAPH SIGNED

      - A fairly large image (7-1/4" x 9-1/4") mounted on 10" x 13" stiff board with the photographer's stamp at the bottom center "Alman & Co./436 Fifth Ave., N.Y./and Newport, R.I." depicting an elderly Howe holding a baby and surrounded by three family members including her two daughters who wrote the Pulitzer Prize winning biography of their mother. SIGNED in ink below the image: "Julia Ward Howe/Jan. 26th, 1904." The verso of the photograph is SIGNED by one of those daughters, Laura Richards: "Mrs. Henry Richards/Gardiner, Maine." Howe, active in the women's suffrage movement, is perhaps best known as the author of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," written at night near the beleaguered capital of Washington at the beginning of the Civil War. It earned her the grand total of $5 upon its publication in THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY along with the added bonus of instant and lasting fame. Later she became president of the New England Woman Suffrage Association as well as the Association of the Advancement of Women. Howe was honored as the first woman elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1908, two years before her death at 91. Signed photographs of Howe are quite scarce. Dampstaining nearly entirely restricted to the margins and mostly visible on the rear, hardly affecting the photograph and not touching Howe's signature. Very Good [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Autograph letter signed in full to Mr. Harvey Marson of the Worcester Chronicle, Worcester, England

      Elgar completed his concert overture In the South just the day before this letter was written; the work premiered at the Elgar Festival on March 14-16 of that year. 1904 was also the year in which his knighthood was announced and in which he was in negotiations regarding a professorship of music at the University of Birmingham. "His abundant invention, largeness of vision, and strength and singularity of musical character place him high among European Romantic artists and at the peak of British music of his time. He drew inspiration from the culture and landscape of his own country, resourcefulness from the study of his continental colleagues; and contributed to all the major forms except opera, creating a significant body of symphonic literature, the finest oratorio by an Englishman, and in his popular music a style of direct national appeal." Diana McVeagh in Grove Music Online.. 1 page. Octavo. Dated Malverne, February 22, 1904. On a blue "Letter Card" with perforated edges, postmarked February 23 [1904]. Elgar knows nothing about ticket arrangements at Köln and suggests that Marson "write to the Committee. I am far too much occuplied just now to think of music!" Slightly worn; browned at edges; creased at fold.

        MADAMA BUTTERFLY (1904). Tragedia giapponese di L.Illica e G.Giacosa. Tratta da J.L.Long e D.Belasco. Opera completa. Riduzione per Canto e Pianoforte di Carlo Carignani, in due Atti, per la prima edizione assoluta da eseguirsi al Teatro alla Scala di Milano nella stagione Carnevale - Quaresima 1904. timbro a secco Febbraio 1904 (Pl.n°110000).

      RicordiCm.27,8x19,8. Pg.(10), 404. Coperta illustrata in tricromia da Montalti con rinforzo cartaceo al dorso. Fogli di guardia decorati. Con la tradizionale dedica, a stampa, alla Regina Elena, ed il ritratto in Platinotipia Bertieri. Rarissima prima edizione dello spartito per Canto e Pianoforte, in due Atti, per la rappresentazione scaligera del 17 febbraio 1904, la sera del famoso "fiasco". In tale occasione una delle sorelle di Puccini, Ramelde, scrisse al marito: "Alle due siamo andati a letto e non posso chiudere occhio; e dire che tutti eravamo tanto sicuri! Giacomo, poverino, non l'abbiamo mai veduto perché non si poteva andare sul palcoscenico. Siamo arrivati in fondo non so come. Il secondo atto non l'ho sentito affatto e, prima che l'opera finisse, siamo scappati dal teatro". L'opera fu ripresentata in tre atti, stavolta con grande successo, tre mesi dopo a Brescia. In quel breve lasso di tempo, Ricordi, notoriamente attentissimo agli andamenti commerciali della propria azienda, ritirò immediatamente il materiale già distribuito, con ciò di fatto rendendo estremamente difficile ad oggi la reperibilità sia dello spartito che del libretto. > Schickling, "Giacomo Puccini, Catalogue of the Works", 74.E.1, "Ricordi began the production of this edition only on 6 November 1903... According to the blind stamps and the registration dates, this edition probably was ready by the end of January 1904. It was announced in "Musica e Musicisti" of February 1904". Hopkinson, "A Bibliography of the Works of Giacomo Puccini", 6A, "This Opera, Puccini's favourite, was, as is well known, a complete failure at its first performance and is in the front rank of fatal operatic first nights. Not only was it hurriedly withdrawn after the first night but publication of the first edition was stopped and copies immediately withdrawn from sale, thus ensuring its considerable rarity".

        SOUVENIR OF NORTH WESTERN ALASKA ILLUSTRATED BY O D GOETZE

      [Grand Rapids, Mi, 1904. Oblong quarto. Original pictorial wrappers, brown cloth backstrip. Minor wear, one text leaf with chip to bottom corner. Very good. A rich photographic record of Nome, Alaska during its heyday as one of the last of the great Gold Rush destinations. The text is entirely composed of black-and- white photographs of the Nome area, which began to lure gold seekers away from the Klondike beginning in 1899. The gold rush in Nome lasted about a decade. All of the photographs here are captioned in print, with some dated 1903 or 1904, boom years for Nome. The photographs were the work of Otto Daniel Goetze, a Missouri native who moved to Nome in 1900. In Nome, Goetze established the Alaska Photo Company with his brother. As expected, many of the views here center around mining activities, with an almost equal number of images concerned with the indigenous population. Over twenty images feature Eskimo families and individuals ranging from the most primitive settings to a studio photograph of a young married couple attired in their finest native dress. Other photos show a panoramic view of Nome, street views of the town, the waterfront, steamers delivering passengers, native grave sites, Fort Davis and the U.S. post at St. Michael, Dutch Harbor, Whalen, Siberia, a bird's-eye view of Dawson City, and much more. A scarce book, with only seventeen copies in OCLC. OCLC 12644061.

        Delegates to the First National Convention of the Socialist Party of the United States of America. Held at Chicago, Illinois May 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th 5th and 6th, 1904

      Chicago: Geo. D. Evans, [ca 1904]. An historical image of great importance, capturing all 183 official delegates to the first nation-wide convention of the first nationally influential Marxist political organization in America. Following four years of attempts at unification, beginning in 1897 with Eugene Debs's Social Democracy of America (formed from the remnants of his National Railway Union) and following various factional splits in the Socialist Labor Party and the Social Democratic Party, representatives of the major American socialist organizations succeeded in coalescing at the so-called "Socialist Unity Convention" of 1901, giving birth to the Socialist Party of America. It would be another three years before the Party called its first National Convention, drawing together representatives from 33 states. The meeting, unsurprisingly, proved contentious, revealing tensions between the Party's left and right elements that would remain unresolved until the Communist Party split of 1919. All 183 delegates to the convention are pictured here, along with assorted spouses (and a few children), all identified in the printed legend below the photograph. A significantly rare image. Only one copy located per OCLC (Library of Congress); no history at auction or in the booksellers' catalogs to which we have access. Large-plate albumen photograph, 245mm x 420mm, mounted on printed pasteboard mount, overall dimensions 410mm x 510mm (ca 16"x20"). Group portrait, with each figure numbered in negative; inset portion shows slightly enlarged portraits of nineteen delegates (the Executive Committee?), including Eugene V. Debs at center. Printed portion of mount lists all 212 subjects, keyed to numbers in the photograph. Mount edgeworn, with cracks and a few marginal losses to mount, the largest measuring ca. 1" x 1-1/2"; all losses well away from printed area. Photograph slightly faded and foxed, but still sharp with all figures easily discernible; Very Good.

"In Coralio - a sultry coastal town in the volatile banana republic of Anchuria - a disparate cast of vagabonds, hucksters, mercenaries, merchants and consuls is busy plotting, scamming, drinking, loving or trying to forget the past. Each has his own tale to tell and his own particular reason for washing up on these tropical shores - and all have a part to play as this masterpiece of twisting narrative begins to unfold."

        THE EVER NEW HORIZON - Alma-Tadema.

      THE EVER NEW HORIZONStaalgravure vervaardigd door Charles Oliver Murray in 1904 naar het schilderij (Opus CCCLXXV uit 1903) van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Met potlood gesigneerd door Alma-Tadema en Murray. Later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 49 x 38 cm.Vanaf 1880 begint Alma-Tadema aan een reeks schilderijen waarop vrouwen zijn afgebeeld die zich hoog op imposante marmeren terrassen bevinden en uitkijken over een heldere Middellandse Zee.Hoewel er weinig archeologische voorwerpen zijn afgebeeld, lijken ze in een specifieke tijd en plaats te zijn gesitueerd: de Romeinse tijd aan de Golf van Napels.Klassieke bronnen beschrijven deze kustlijn als een populaire vakantie bestemming uit het vroeg Romeinse Rijk. De rijken bouwden luxe villa"s langs de baai op de randen van de klippen.De drie vrouwen op The Ever New Horizon lijken echter minder ontspannen dan de dames op het fameuze The Coign of Vantage [vert.: een gunstig uitkijkpunt] uit 1895. De vrouwen lijken door hun geliefden te zijn verlaten en hopen, uitkijkend over zee, op hun terugkomst.Prijs: € 2.250,- (incl. lijst).
