        PHOTO-SECESSION: A COLLECTION OF AMERICAN PICTORIAL PHOTOGRAPHS AS ARRANGED BY THE PHOTO-SECESSION AND EXHIBITED UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE CAMERA CLUB OF PITTSBURGH, AT THE ART GALLERIES OF THE CARNEGIE INSTITUTE, PITTSBURGH, FEBRUARY MDCCCCIV.

      (Pittsburgh:: The Camera Club of Pittsburgh,, 1904). First ed. Steichen, Eduard. 4to., (vii), seven hand-pulled photogravure plates on tissue, 10 pp., 6 adverts. The printed wrappers were designed by Eduard Steichen; they extend beyond the contents and therefore show some wear; rubbed along the spine, with a few small tears at the ends. There is moderate foxing to the blank first leaf. The tissue photogravure plates are fine. Housed in a custom made clamshell box of linen, calf and paper labels. This most important exhibition, under the direction of Alfred Stieglitz, included 287 displayed works by the 57 photographers. It was the largest and best attended of any American photographic exhibition to it's time, with 11,000 total attendance. Stieglitz, upon forming the Photo-Secession began publishing a small series of pamphlets of the same name which were distributed to its members. In the February, 1904 issue (No. 4) he wrote "The catalogue of the Pittsburgh show has been printed and arranged entirely under our direction. In addition to the regular edition an edition de luxe, illustrated with seven photogravures upon Japan tissue pulled from Camera Work plates, has been prepared for sale at two dollars per copy. As the edition is limited to 350 copies, we can not guarantee you a copy unless applied for at once. The cover was designed by Mr. Steichen, the whole thing being quite out of the ordinary. The Secession will no doubt once more give our friends, the enemy, something to talk about." The photogravure plates are "Rodin" by Eduard J. Steichen; "John W. Beatty, Jr., and His Sister Katherine Elizabeth" by Clarence H. White; "The Manger" by Gertrude Käsebier; "The Hand of Man" by Alfred Stieglitz; "Gables" by Alvin Langdon Coburn; "'Midst Steam and Smoke" by Prescott Adamson; and "Leonore" by Joseph T. Keiley.

        Schwäbisches Wörterbuch. Auf Grund der von Adalbert von Keller begonnenen Sammlungen und mit Unterstützung des Württembergischen Staates

      Tübingen, H. Laupp`sche Buchhandlung, 1904 - 1936. - Einbände berieben und bestoßen. In Band 1 gedruckte Widmung zum 50. Geburtstag von Wilhelm Hohnhausen mit den Unterschriften der Mitarbeiter seiner Stuttgarter Werbeagentur (Hahn, Bezler, Steinmayer, Fink, Hajek, Schürer, Hirsch, Dölker, Bolz, Schall, Pfitzenmeier u.a.). Gelegentlich Bleistiftanstreichungen. Innen sauber. Gutes Leseexemplar. "Das Schwäbische Wörterbuch ist eines der wissenschaftlich erarbeiteten großlandschaftlichen Wörterbücher des Deutschen. Es umfasst die im zentralen und östlichen Teil Baden-Württembergs, im südwestlichen Teil Bayerns und in einigen angrenzenden Gebieten Tirols gesprochene rezente und historische Sprache. Räumlich umfasst das Schwäbische Wörterbuch das ganze Gebiet des früheren Königreichs Württemberg und des einstigen preußischen Regierungsbezirks Sigmaringen (Hohenzollernsche Lande), weiter Bayern südwestlich der Wörnitz und westlich des Lechs (Bayerisch-Schwaben), von Tirol das Tannheimer Tal und das Lechtal bei Reutte sowie vom einstigen Großherzogtum Baden den Teil östlich der Linie Neuhausen o. E.–Stockach–Ludwigshafen. Die benachbarten großlandlandschaftlichen Wörterbücher sind gegen Westen, Nord- und Südwesten das Badische Wörterbuch, gegen Süden das Schweizerische Idiotikon, das Vorarlbergische Wörterbuch und das Wörterbuch der bairischen Mundarten in Österreich, gegen Osten das Bayerische Wörterbuch und gegen Nordosten das Ostfränkische Wörterbuch. Während sich die West- und die Ostgrenze des Bearbeitungsgebiets an der Ausdehnung der schwäbischen Mundart orientiert, greift es infolge des Entscheids, ganz Württemberg einzubeziehen, im Norden weit in den fränkischen und im Süden in den bodenseealemannischen Raum hinein. Das Schwäbische Wörterbuch gehört in diejenige Gruppe der großlandschaftlichen Wörterbücher, die nicht allein die zur Sammel- und Bearbeitungszeit des Wörterbuchs lebendige Mundart, sondern auch die historische Sprache dokumentiert. Es deckt damit sowohl den schwäbischen Dialekt als auch die schwäbische Kanzleisprache und damit einen Zeitraum vom Spätmittelalter bis ins frühe 20. Jahrhundert ab. Das Wörterbuch dokumentiert einerseits den gesprochenen und dialektliterarisch verschrifteten Wortschatz, wie er in den Jahrzehnten vor und nach 1900 geläufig war, anderseits den historischen Wortschatz aus Rechtsquellen, Urkunden, Chroniken und weiteren schriftlichen Zeugnissen. Die Anordnung der Wörter ist weitgehend glattalphabetisch; ausgenommen davon ist die Zusammenfassung der Anlaute b/p, d/t, f/v und k/q. Die Lemmatisierung geschieht im Wesentlichen gemäß der schriftsprachlichen oder einer schriftsprachlich gedachten Form; hochgestelltes n (d. h. nicht gesprochenes n, etwa in der Endung des Infinitivs) bedeutet, dass das Wort lebendig ist, tiefgestelltes n, dass es nur in der historischen Sprache vorkommt. Dem Lemma oder einer Bedeutung vorangesetztes † zeigt an, dass das Wort bzw. die jeweilige Bedeutung ausgestorben ist. In Teuthonista wird im Anschluss an das Lemma die Realisierung des Stichworts in den verschiedenen Dialekten wiedergegeben. Die Belegsätze werden kursiv gegeben, wenn sie der lebendigen Mundart zugehören, aufrecht, wenn sie aus historischen Quellen stammen. Das Schwäbische Wörterbuch richtet sich an Sprachwissenschaftler, Volkskundler und Vertreter anderer Disziplinen ebenso wie an den interessierten Laien. Initiator war Adelbert von Keller (1812–1883), der ein Schwäbisches Wörterbuch nach dem Vorbild von Johann Andreas Schmellers Bayrischem Wörterbuch machen wollte und hierfür eine Sammlung von 300.000 bis 400.000 Zetteln, von Hinweisen zu Liedern, Sitten und Gebräuchen sowie etwa 400 Aufsätzen anlegte. Es war ihm jedoch nicht mehr vergönnt, das Material vollständig zu ordnen. Hermann Fischer (1851-1920), der 1869 bis 1873 Kellers Schüler war, übernahm in Absprache mit seinem Lehrer die Aufgabe, das Wörterbuch zu schaffen. 1886 verschickte Fischer Fragebögen an die Pfarrämter Württembergs, Hohenzollerns, Südostbadens, Bayerisch-Schwabens, Bayerisc [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Nostromo: A Tale of the Seaboard.

      London: Harper & Brothers, 1904. First edition of what many consider to be the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original blue cloth stamped in gilt. An excellent near fine example with some light rubbing, spine gilt nice and bright, tasteful bookplate to the front board. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A gripping tale of capitalist exploitation and rebellion, set in the fictional South American mining town of Sulaco, Conrad employs flashbacks and glimpses of the future to depict the lure of silver and its effects on men. "Nostromo" is a classic tale of the power of money, its ability to corrupt and the turmoil that this corruption can create. Conrad's deep moral consciousness and masterful narrative technique are at their best in what many consider one of his best works. Named by Modern Library as one of top 100 novels of the twentieth century.

        Nagyberezna-Uzsok Railway Tunnels and Viaducts

      Around 1904-1905 - 8 original, vintage sepia photographs. Sizes: (3) 180 × 130 mm; (4) 140 × 90 mm; (1) 165 × 115 mm.

        [Forestry] A chromolithographed and manuscript charter for the Toledo, Ohio, branch or 'court' of the Order of Independent Foresters

      Toronto: Toronto Lithographing Co. Ltd, 1904. Lithographed and manuscript text within elaborate chromolithographic surround. Overall toning, some expert small repaired tears. A very fine example of the chromolithographer's art. This exuberant example of turn-of-the-20th-century design, incorporating many symbolic elements - some of a general nature (personifications of Liberty, Justice, Benevolence and Truth), others of a more specific nature - the moose's head, the horn, bow and arrows, etc. This is a relatively early example of an Independent Order of Foresters charter - the Order originated in New Jersey in 1874 as a mutual benefit society. Currently, the majority of its over one million members are from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. The charter is largely lithographic - only the date, the fourteen names of the 'First Staff of Officers' and details of the name and location of the Toledo 'court' are in manuscript.

        Original Admission Ticket to Winston S. Churchill's 15 June 1904 speech to the Free Trade League of his future North West Manchester constituency

      Manchester: Free Trade League, North-West Manchester Division Branch, 1904. At 3:00 pm on Wednesday, June 15, 1904, Winston Churchill delivered a lengthy speech in the hall of the Midland Hotel to the local Free Trade League branch of his future North West Manchester constituency. This rather remarkable little item is an original admission ticket to the meeting. Just 29 years old, Churchill was a promising but already controversial young leader who had yet to experience either the trying failures or supreme triumphs that cemented his place in history. And he had just made one of the watershed decisions that would define the early decades of his political career and set the tone for the obdurate anti-orthodoxy in the face of personal conviction that would characterize the entirety of the six decades in Parliament that still lay before him. Only two weeks before, on May 31, 1904, Churchill had left his fatherÂ’s Conservative Party and crossed the aisle to become a Liberal. Churchill was beginning a dynamic chapter in his political career that saw him champion progressive cause and be branded a traitor to his class. Free trade was a policy issue on which he had opposed Conservative Party leadership and which had helped precipitate his defection from the party. It would be North West Manchester that would soon provide a constituency to Churchill, even if his relationship with the constituency proved brief and fraught. In his 64-year parliamentary career, Churchill represented five different constituencies. His second – North West Manchester – was also his shortest. ChurchillÂ’s speech of June 15, 1904 was delivered to “a meeting of business men belonging either to the Manchester Chamber of Commerce or to the Free Trade League.” His speech would be published in 1906 in the now exceptionally rare volume of his speeches titled For Free Trade (pp.82-106). Of note, in the summer of 1903, ChurchillÂ’s close friend and political ally Lord Hugh Cecil (who would serve as best man at ChurchillÂ’s wedding in 1908), helped found the Free Trade Union, which was “primarily a central propaganda body” that “maintained relations with spontaneously formed local Free Trade organisations. The most important of these was the Free Trade League of Manchester…” (P.F. Clarke, Lancashire and the New Liberalism, p.276) ChurchillÂ’s first constituency (from 1900-1906) as a Member of Parliament – Oldham – favored the Conservative policy of protectionism. ChurchillÂ’s advocacy of free trade and defection to the Liberal Party led the Oldham Conservative Association to pass a resolution that he “had forfeited their confidence in him.” Churchill was invited to stand for North West Manchester, a traditionally Conservative seat that he won as a Liberal in the 1906 General Election. North West Manchester was “one of nine of that cityÂ’s constituencies, with a tiny electorate of just 10,000, of whom almost a third were Jewish. Churchill polled 5,639 votes with a majority of 1,241Â… By now a junior minister, he was almost entirely concerned with national and international affairs.” (Douglas Hall, Finest Hour #103, pp.49-50) In 1908, when Churchill was promoted to the Cabinet as President of the Board of Trade, custom required that he submit to re-election. His by-election became a test of confidence in the Liberal government. Forced to defend the GovernmentÂ’s policy, targeted by vengeful Conservatives, and hounded on the hustings by Suffragettes, Churchill was narrowly defeated by the Conservative candidate. It seems rather remarkable that this original ticket to ChurchillÂ’s June 15 1904 speech on the issue of the day to his future Manchester constituency has survived. The ticket measures 4.5 x 3 inches and is printed in black ink on one side of bright yellow card stock. “MR. WINSTON S. CHURCHILL, M.P.” is prominently printed at the center the card and the subject of his address is titled “THE FISCAL QUESTION.” Condition of the ticket is nearly perfect, with virtually no soiling or wear and retaining bright, unfaded color.

        A WESTERN TRIP

      [Detroit]: For private circulation only, 1904. Small quarto. Original gilt pictorial light brown leather, red silk endpapers. Minor shelf wear. A bit of light offsetting from the color photographs. Near fine. A presentation copy, warmly inscribed by Schmidt on the front free endpaper to the Hoeft family of Rogers City, Michigan. Paul Hoeft was a Michigan lumber magnate who donated land on Lake Huron to the state of Michigan in 1922, which became Hoeft State Park. A remarkable book, printed in a very small number for private circulation, and featuring a number of original photographic prints. Schmidt, his daughter, and two friends left Chicago for Wyoming and the West in the summer of 1901. They spent several weeks in Yellowstone, and Schmidt recounts their adventures in great detail, with descriptions of the park, their hiking expeditions, the characters they encountered, and more. One chapter is devoted to a fishing trip, and the final chapter describes a visit to a mine in Montana. The color pictures are photochrome prints after photographs by William Henry Jackson, who, as the official photographer of the Hayden Survey in the 1870s, took the first photographs of Yellowstone. The photochrome process was invented in Switzerland, and the American rights were purchased by the Detroit Publishing Company around 1895. Jackson served as a director of the newly-created Photochrom Company subsidiary, and praised the photochrome process in his memoirs as a "process hardly improved today." The pictures ably convey the natural beauty of the region that became America's first national park. The black and white photographs were taken by Schmidt and his companions and show the sites they visited, including several candid shots of Yellowstone. This is the scarce second edition, with the black and white photographs printed onto the text leaves. The original photochrome prints are mounted. "Printed in a few copies...An interesting journal of the Yellowstone Country, and because of the circumstances of its printing, extremely difficult to come by" - Eberstadt. Scarce and quite interesting. HOWES S170, "aa." STREETER SALE 4123. EBERSTADT 136:667d. STREETER SALE 4123. TRAVELING THRU WONDERLAND, pp.40-41.

        Stella Fregelius.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1904. A Tale of Three Destinies. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and within single-fillet frame to front cover in gilt, black surface-paper endpapers. Spine rolled, corners bumped, a few small faint marks to covers, front free endpaper with a minor chip to fore edge and discreet ownership inscription to verso. An excellent, fresh copy. First UK edition, first impression. Presentation copy, with a signed inscription from Haggard to Sir Oliver Lodge on his Ditchingham House letterhead mounted to the front pastedown, bearing the short message, "In recollection a very interesting evening, 1. Feb: 1904", and additionally with the ink-stamp of "F. Brodie Lodge, Floore House" to the initial blank, above a manuscript note reading "Ex Normanton Library, October 1940". Lodge was a noted physicist who made important contributions to the study of electricity and radio waves though became increasingly discredited owing to his stubborn advocacy of the ether theory, and in particular "through its application in his later books to psychical matters and to the spiritualism with which this had become increasingly associated" (ODNB). He eventually became President of the Society for Psychical Research and found a friend in Rider Haggard, who "more than dabbled in spiritualism, believed in reincarnation, and sought answers to the meaning of life in the world's ancient myths" (idem). Francis Brodie Lodge was Oliver's second son and had a successful career as an electrical engineer. Normanton House, near Lake in Wiltshire, was the Lodge family home. Ditchingham was the Norfolk estate of Rider Haggard's wife, Louisa Magritson, and though the couple were married in 1880, it was only with the publication of She in 1887 that the author was able to buy out the tenants and make Ditchingham his home. Stella Fregelius was first published in the US the previous year.

        The History Of The Standard Oil Company ~ Two Volume Set

      NY: McClure, Phillips & Company. VG-. 1904. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. Red cloth. Slight shelf wear to edges. True first edition, first issue, published November, 1904. Some cracking near the spine on inside front cover of book 1. Text is tight and has normal aging for 110+ year old book. ; Written by journalist Ida Tarbell in 1904, The History of the Standard Oil Company was an exposé of the Standard Oil Company, run at that time by oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller, the richest figure in America's history. Originally serialized in 19 parts in McClure's magazine, the book was a seminal example of muckraking (known today as "investigative journalism") and inspired many other journalists to write about trusts. Trusts were large businesses that (in the absence of strong antitrust law in the 19th century) attempted to gain monopolies in various industries. The History of the Standard Oil Company was credited with hastening the breakup of Standard Oil, which came about in 1911. This is the full and complete digital version of both volumes, plus all appendices, illustrations, charts, tables, footnotes, index and fully hyperlinked. A truly fascinating work. The binding is slightly loose on Volume II. Guilt edge top. Illustrated by Plates. Volume One: 406 pages. Volume Two: 409 pages including index. "an effort on the part of the editors of McClure's Magazine to deal concretely in their pages with the trust question. In order that their readers might have a clear and succinct notion of the processes by which a particular industry passes from the control of the many to that of the few, they decided a few years ago to publish a detailed narrative of the history of the growth of a particular trust. ..." ; Drawings & photographs; 8vo; 406 & 409 pages .
