        [Photo Album]: Teen-age Girls Attending the "Queen's School" in Bangkok, 1968 [hand-titled]: "Happiness is Together with All Friends"

      Small quarto. Plasticized white paper over flexible boards. 111 black and white photographs. Most are about 2.5" x 3.5", a few larger. Slight soiling to the boards, images are mostly fine, many with ink signatures, but for the most part not obscuring the images. Dated from the inscriptions (in Thai). Each photograph is a portrait of a young girl or group of young girls, apparently prepared as a friendship album for one of the students. After the handwritten title page ("Happiness is Together with All Friends") is a drawing of an orchid, and the single word "Farewell," perhaps this was prepared as a going away album for the lone western (possibly American) girl pictured in the album. The girls, in school uniforms, miniskirts, bathing suits, and other typical late 1960s fashion, are almost all are in Western style clothing. The students are depicted engaging in a variety of activities, playing basketball, baseball, posing with a Jaguar XKE, with pets, with a guitar, on the beach, with a bicycle taxi, etc. Also laid in is a New Year's card, most of the text handwritten in Thai. A nice period vernacular album of adolescent girls engaged in a wide range of activities. The Thai inscriptions in the album indicates that this album depicts girls from the Queen's School. Queen Saovabha Phongsri took a particular interest in the education of women, and in 1904 established the first school for girls in Siam; the "Rajini School" or Queen's School in Bangkok. .

Containing 24 stiff card pages with 64 photographs total, 50 mounted recto and verso, 13 laid in loose. 21 of the photos larger format (8" x 10" approx.) with remainder roughly 3" x 5". Mounted photos all with manuscript captions. 22 instances of descriptions absent photographs, presumed perished. Binding a bit shaken, front hinge splitting. But overall sound, clean, and good overall. Prints well preserved, generally very good. A significant, early 1900s photograph album of Guatemala, most likely complied and partially photographed by the wife of then United States Consular General to Guatemala, William P. Kent (1857-1936, Consul 1906-09). With several well composed shots of the exterior and interior of the Consular?'s residence at No. 76 5th Ave. in Guatemala City, as well as many images of trips through the country in and around the areas of Guatemala City, San Rafael, and Santa Maria. Other historic images include a group shot of Central American dignitaries aboard the USS Marblehead during peace treaty negotiations, and several of railroad interest, most notably an 8?" x 10?" commercial print of Guatemalan President Manuel Joe Estrada Cabrera captioned "Signing contract for construction of the Northern R.R." - possibly what would become known as the Farcquar Contract with The United Fruit Company for completion of The Northern Railroad in 1904. Two prints, including the contract signing, bear the stamp of photographer Albert G. Valdeavellano; one stamped Jose Garcia Sanchez. A series of five magnificent 8?" x 10?" prints (above, left) show the ruins at Antigua. Two enlargements show what is described as a large-scale, cement-constructed topographical map of Guatemala housed in the Temple of Minerva and built at a cost of some $100,000. The album and most loose prints are captioned in detail, making this a rich and important primary source.

        FINE AND EXTENSIVE HERBARIUM OF BRITISH PLANTS

      n/a: n/a, 1904. A superb and extensive collection of herbarium specimens of British Plants with over 650 species represented; approximately 100 of these are supported with original watercolour illustrations, and a few with original b/w photographs of specimens or habitat. Each specimen is displayed in a separate card folder (size approx. 38 x 51cm folding to 38 x 26cm.), carefully sewn in place with white thread; and generally protected with an inserted sheet of blotting paper; each with a printed species label to which location and date have been added in manuscript and occasionally the collector's initials. The illustrations are painted or inserted onto the inside front fold opposite the dried plant and vary somewhat in quality, with some highly accomplished. The specimens were collected mainly between 1904 and 1910 with a few later specimens around 1913, with a further adjunct collection of specimens around 1932. We are not sure who the main collector was, but all collections appear to be made by the "J" family as there are a few references to E. V. J.; E. M. J.; D. R. J.; and E. S. C. J. The centre of collection is focused around Canterton in Dorset, but collections were made all over England and Wales inlcuding: Salisbury Plain, Corfe Castle, Snowdon, Bramshaw, New Forest, Lulworth, Sedge Moor, Rakes Brake[?], Ramsey, Swanage, Cheddar, Yarmouth, Coombe Bissett, Sheepstor etc. and in Cornwall - Kynance, Goonhilly Downs etc; and in Wales - Snowdon and Cefn Rocks. To give an impression of the scope of this extraordinary collection there are at least 24 orchid species represented as follows: - bog orchid, New Forest Aug 1906 (supported with a contemporary b/w photograph presumably of the collected plant); broad-leaved helleborine, Cadman Road, Aug. 1903; marsh heleborine, Sennen (W. Cornwall), July 1919; white helleborine, White Parish Hill, June 1906; common tway-blade, Canterton, July 1904; heart-leaved tway-blade, near Llyn Anafon, July 1910 (N.Wales); bird's nest orchid, Binstead Hill Wood, June 1906; commony lady's-tresses, nr. Brook Pond, Sept. 1903; large-flowered lady's tresses, New Forest 1905; green-winged Orchid, Canterton, May 1904; military orchid June 1909 (initialled W. M. J., no location given); Orchis ustulata (burnt orchid), Whiteparish Hill, June 1906; early purple orchid, Canterton, May 1903; spotted hand orchid (O. mascula), Canterton, June 1908; Marsh Orchid, (O. latifolia), New Forest , May 1912; Pyramidal Orchid, Lulworth, 1906; butterfly orchid, New Forest, June 1906; great butterfly orchid, Buckcharm, June 1905; fragrant orchid; nr. Rhydymwyn, July 1910; green frog orchid, The Leeta, Mold, N. Wales, June 1903; bee orchid, Lulworth, June 1904; spider orchid, Swanage, April 1910; and Fly Orchid, Bentworth, June 1906. The specimens in their folders are contained within a six-shelf stained pine cabinet, adapted to the purpose; to the the lip of each shelf in manuscript are lists of plant families, though these only partly relate to the specimens on that shelf. The cabinet is a little bruised and worn, and the key to the lock missing, but the contents and specimens are in excellent condition, a few folders dusty to the outside. An extraordinary collection, containing many rare species, a testimony to a bygone Britain before the introduction of intensive farming and the wholesale loss of wildflower meadows. A large heavy item: a shipping surcharge will apply. . Very Good. Folio.

Evelyn Underhill (6 December 1875 – 15 June 1941) was an English Anglo-Catholic writer and pacifist known for her numerous works on religion and spiritual practice, in particular Christian mysticism. In her first novel, The Grey World, described by one reviewer as an extremely interesting psychological study, the hero's mystical journey begins with death, and then moves through reincarnation, beyond the grey world, and into the choice of a simple life devoted to beauty, reflecting Underhill's own serious perspective as a young woman. Book is very good+ and bright. Spine age toned. Contents good. Pages a little age toned and foxed. Inscription to endpaper. Quite foxed title pages. A very nice example and very rare in this condition. More images available upon request. Ref Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      - Amsterdam, Jacq. van Cleef, 1904. Ingenaaid. 220 p. 1e druk. Omslag met plakbandstrepen, vage naam op titel, maar een goed exemplaar (professioneel restauratierapport bijgevoegd).* Een mythisch boek uit de moderne Nederlandse letterkunde! Deze eerste druk van Pijpelijntjes, verschenen in juni 1904, is een van de zeer weinige exemplaren met het complete originele omslag, zelfs inclusief de rug.De arts-schrijver A. Aletrino, aan wie deze openlijk homo-erotische roman in druk werd opgedragen, herkende zichzelf in een van de twee hoofdpersonen van het boek ('Sam', Aletrino's bijnaam). Hij kocht samen met Johanna van Maarseveen de voorraad op en vernietigde deze. Slechts enkele exemplaren ontsprongen de dans. In oktober 1904 verscheen een tweede, herschreven druk. De eerste druk van Pijpelijntjes wordt tegenwoordig beschouwd als een van de zeldzaamste boeken uit de Nederlandse literatuur. Volgens de NCC alleen in de Universiteitsbibliotheken van Leiden en Amsterdam.

        The Face of the Earth [Das Antlitz Der Erde], 5 Volume Set with Index

      Oxford; 1904-1924: Oxford University Press Published from 1904-1924, this was Eduard Suess's monumental contribution that revolutionized geological studies. Initially, scholars were overwhelmed by the evidence because there was no index nor maps in a set that now comes to over 2400 pages.. Volume V not only provides an index but Maps. Map I, for instance, is helpful in portraying Suess' analysis of the earth's surface; Map II, his analysis of Europe, and Map III, the recument sheets of the Alps. Five of the maps are in color and the concise text description adds to the value of the work. Paradoxically, Volume V was printed in a small print run and copies are rare. OCLC shows that only the British Library records the entire five volume set. Here\along with Wegener and Du Toit's Our Wandering Continents, we have the essence of the geological revolution from the end of the Nineteenth Century to Du Toit's work published in 1937. The thoroughness of Suess's work remains essential for a core library on the history of geology. Lester King's work in 1962 sheds some new light but relies upon the work much of which was so carefully recorded that the five volumes have stood the test of time. The original set is rare in fine condition and the unopened issue shows that though Michael G.D. Johnson who notes he owned the complete set in June 1943, it was never used thus accounting for its remarkable condition.. Quarto.

        The Complete Works. Including Materials Never Before Printed in any Edition of the Poems. Edited with Textual Notes by Thomas Hutchinson M.A.

      at the Clarendon Press, Oxford 1904 - Frontispiece portrait. 8vo. [225 x 143 x 45 mm]. xxvii, 1023, [1] pp. Bound c.1930 by H. T. Wood for the First Edition Club (signed in gilt on the rear turn-in) in blue goatskin, the covers tooled in gilt with multiple thick and thin fillets rising vertically from the foot and with a large lozenge shaped centre divided into four with multiple fillets at angles. Smooth spine divided into five panels by multiple gilt bars and squares, lettered in the second panel, plain endleaves, top edge gilt. (Spine slightly faded and a little rubbed). The ink stamp at the rear reads "Specially Bound For The First Edition Club By H.T. Wood Ltd, London". The First Edition Club was established by A. J. A. Symons in 1922, initially with the support of William Foyle. It offered a centre for bibliographical information and a dining club in Bloomsbury. Amongst the Club's publications was Graily Hewitt's Pen and Type Designs, issued in 1928 in the distinctive red goatskin binding with a central linear design of a quadruple V. The Club closed in 1931, but its lasting legacy was The Book-Collector's Quarterly, launched in 1930 and evolving into The Book Collector. It is not clear why the First Edition Club was putting its name to a special binding on a work published in 1904, but this is not a unique copy. Sophie Schneideman offered another as item 16 in her catalogue 12. Our copy is significant in having belonged to J.R. Abbey, and has his bookplate. It was item 72 in the 1949 Arts Council Exhibition of Modern English and French Bindings from the Collection of Major J.R. Abbey, and the catalogue credits the design to Kenneth Hobson and confirms that the morocco was blue (in certain lights it appears green). Hobson was a director of Henry T. Wood Ltd, and the firm amalgamated with Sangorski & Sutcliffe in 1939.
