        The Sea-Wolf

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1904 Illustrated by W. J. Aylward. First edition, second issue with the cancel title leaf as usual, in BAL's A binding. Publisher's decorative light blue cloth designed by the Decorative Designers, with an illustration of a sailor on a boat grasping a rope and clenching his fist to the front board in white, dark blue and rust orange, front board lettered in white, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt. Very good or better, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, spine lightly starting inside the rear cover, otherwise sturdy binding, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, bookseller's plate to the front free endpaper, a few light stains to the first few pages. Overall, an attractive copy. BAL 11882. The Sea-Wolf is a nautical adventure novel about Humphrey van Weyden, a literary critic and castaway, who is rescued by The Ghost, a schooner manned by the brutal captain Wolf Larsen. As he adapts to the tough life of a sailor, van Weyden becomes strong in mind and body, allowing him to challenge the tyrannical, amoral Larsen. This second issue of The Sea-Wolf with a cancel title leaf is the earliest available issue; as Blanck notes, the only copy without a cancel title leaf is London's personal copy. Decorative Designers (1895-1931) was a New York City-based firm that produced book bindings, dust jackets, illustrations, and advertisements. Founded by the married couple Henry W. Thayer and Emma Redington Lee (Emma Thayer), Decorative Designers was one of the most prolific producers of American decorative bindings. They were capable of mass production as a result of its division of labor between its staff of talented designers and artists; Thayer was in charge of typography and created much of the lettering, while Lee created many of the decorative borders and designs. Other members of Decorative Designers include the figure designers Charles Buckles Falls and Jay Chambers, as well as the engravers Rome K. Richardson and Adam Empie. As a result of the collective collaborations and individual creations of its staff, Decorative Designers was a dominant organization during the heyday of decorative cloth bindings.. Illus. by Aylward, W.J.; Decorative Designers. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        The Blue Grass Cook Book

      New York: Fox, Duffield & Company, 1904. Small octavo, 350 pages. First edition. Illustrated with black and white photos by Alvin Langdon Coburn. The introduction by John Fox, begins with a comparison of a meal of sushi in Japan, with a meal in much longed-for Kentucky. The illustrations, Coburn's first work published in a book, are sympathetic but strong portraits of the African-American cooks and others at the heart of Kentucky's food. I'm particularly fond of the photo of a ham being cured in Auvergne, KY. A few pages with staining, and handful of recipes marked with an 'X' by a previous owner. Rear end paper adhered to rear board. Previous owner's name to front free endpaper. Good or better, in publisher's blue cloth with some darkening. [Brown 1124; Axford, page 36; Cagle 270].

        Bau des Wocheiner Tunnels 1901-1904

      NP, Klagenfurt 1904 - Oblong quarto 99 1/2 x 13"). [2] leaves (Title and Foreword); [33] leaves (Plates). Original gilt-stamped burgundy cloth, with gold lettering to front cover. All adges gilt. Decorative endpapers. Privately published by Austrian photographer Alois Beer, this work is entirely devoted to the construction of the Wocheiner (now Bohinj, Slovenia) railroad tunnel between 1901 and 1904. The railway was built by Austria-Hungary from 1900 to 1906 as a part of a new strategic railway, the Neue Alpenbahnen, that would connect Western Austria and Southern Germany with the then Austro-Hungarian port of Trieste. The line starts in Jesenice, at the Southern end of the Karawanks Tunnel; it then crosses the Julian Alps through the Bohinj Tunnel, and passes the border town of Nova Gorica before crossing the Italian border and reaching Trieste. During the First World War, it carried the majority of Austrian military supplies to the Isonzo Front. Due to new political divisions in Europe, with the dissolution of Austria-Hungary into separate states in 1918 and the isolation of communist Yugoslavia after 1945, the railway decreased in importance during the twentieth century.This work is splendidly illustrated throughout with 2 plans, 5 b/w illustrations and 26 photogravures.Slight rubbing and discoloration along spine. Text and captions in German. Binding in overall good+ to very good, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        PARADISI IN SOLE PARADISUS TERRESTRIS . . . FAITHFULLY REPRINTED FROM THE EDITION OF 1629

      Methuen & Co, London 1904 - 375 x 225 mm. (14 3/4 x 8 3/4"). 8 p.l., 612, 16 pp. MID-20TH CENTURY ALUM-TAWED PIGSKIN, VIGOROUSLY GILT, over bevelled boards BY SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE, covers decorated in gilt in an overall diapered design with leaf fronds and inlaid mauve rosettes forming lozenge-shaped compartments containing a stylized sheaf of wheat, smooth spine with similar decoration and gilt titling, turn-ins with repeating gilt leaves and pink rosettes, vellum endleaves, all edges gilt. In a green morocco-lipped felt-lined slipcase. Woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials, author's portrait, illustrated title page depicting the Garden of Eden, three small illustrations in text, and 109 fine full-page woodcut illustrations of flowers, vegetables, and fruits almost certainly by Christopher Switzer, showing nearly 800 plants. A photocopy of a photograph of the binding in the Sangorski workshop, with manuscript notations on its creation, laid in at front. Original edition: Henrey 282; Hunt 215; Nissen BBI 1489; Pritzel 6933; STC 19300. Spine slightly and uniformly yellowed, a few leaves with minor crease in bottom right corner, otherwise very fine, with almost no signs of use inside or out. This is a very attractively bound facsimile of a famous 17th century gardening book, the binding done in 1960 by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, with forwarding by Frank Watson and finishing by Edgar Turner. Turner must have been one of the bindery's best finishers, as he was chosen to tool the binding for the Coronation Bible presented to Queen Elizabeth II by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The pigskin here is beautifully creamy, and the delicate gilt tooling and tiny inlaid rosettes give the impression of fine gold lace over ivory satin. The document laid in here shows Sangorski & Sutcliffe's head of bookbinding Stanley Bray posing with this volume in the bindery in 1970. Bray's handwritten notation, dated 10 December 1979, gives us the date of the binding and the names of the craftsmen who worked on it. Bray was the nephew of George Sutcliffe and had trained with his uncle; it is likely he designed this binding, to be carried out by Watson and Turner.

        The Bausch & Lomb Lens Souvenir. Being a Collection of the Photographs Which Received Awards.

      - Rochester: Bausch & Lomb Optical Company, 1904. Small folio, original side-stitched gray wrappers, title embossed on front wrapper, photographic print mounted on upper front wrapper within embossed frame. [57 pp.] Many photographic plates and illustrations, some printed in sepia. Tiny piece lacking from upper rear corner of front wrapper, some minor dog-earing; overall a very good copy of this ephemeral publication. First Edition of this outstanding promotional work promoting Bausch & Lomb lenses which turned out to be a significant document in the history of Pictorialism and the Photo-Secession. The competition was designed to demonstrate the optical capabilities of the firm's lenses to produce images of both technical and illustrative quality. The grand-prizewinner was Stieglitz's magnificent "The Street-Winter, " which is reproduced following a full-page declaration of the ideals of "The Photo-Secession" by Stieglitz. A similar essay by Edward Steichen (who was then still spelling his first name as 'Eduard'), entitled "Concerning Portraiture, " accompanies a portrait by him. Eickemeyer, a well-known Pictorialist photographer, contributes a two-page introduction to the work, and there are numerous other brief essays. Among the photographers whose work is reproduced are Laura Adams Armer, Louis Fleckenstein, and the great photographer of the Antarctic, Herbert G. Ponting, whose images include what appears to be a view of Sausalito, on San Francisco Bay. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co. Ltd, 1904. One of 500 copies. 22 plates, by Henry Alken and others. 1 vols. 4to. Bound in full crimson morocco, gilt emblematic tooling on the spine, gilt doublures, t.e.g., by Riviere & Son; spots of foxing on outer edges (not extending onto the page), else fine and attractive. One of 500 copies. 22 plates, by Henry Alken and others. 1 vols. 4to. Fine Reprint of the Rare, Classic 'sporting Repository" of 1822. The Sporting Repository, a London periodical of almost legendary rarity (particularly the final, June, issue) appeared in only six monthly issues, January-June 1822. There were a number of short-lived sporting journals around this time, but this one was notable by the inclusion of 19 colored plates by Alken and J. Barenger. Not all of these are of top quality, and the publishers of this 1904 reprint, while reproducing most with careful fidelity, have replaced six of the weaker ones with nine others of superior quality by Alken, Dighton, and Ben Marshall, for a total of 22. Apart from this, the contents are as in the original, and the resulting volume is not only handsome, but of continuing interest to the sportsman, and to anyone interested in Regency England.
