        Teilnachlass des Künstlers in 25 Original-Photographien, 2 eigenhändigen Briefen, 1 Skizzenblatt und 1 Skizzenbuch mit 35 gelegentlich kolorierten Skizzen.

      Bei den Fotos handelt es sich ganz überwiegend um Porträts des Künstlers aus der Zeit von 1904 (verso so datiert) bis hin zu zwei Aufnahmen der Totenmaske 1981 (nach Aufnahme von Frank Roland-Beeneken). Die zwei undatierten Briefe (aus den 1950er und 1960er Jahren ?) an seine Frau mit teils erotischem, teils alltäglichem Inhalt, versehen jeweils mit eigenhändigen Skizzen, darunter eine reizvolle Skizze einer Orphée-Gestalt, anscheinend etwas von Cocteau inspiriert. Das Skizzenheft (15 x 10 cm, drei der Skizzen sind ankoloriert bzw. koloriert) zeigt Erotisches (sicher war seine Frau das Modell), Gebäude, eher abstrahierenden Personendarstellungen und Landschaften, wohl teils von Reisen. Insgesamt ergibt die Sammlung einen sehr privaten Einblick in das Nachkriegs-Leben und Werk des Künstlers. Beigegeben zwei handschriftliche Briefe eines "Jonny", vermutlich eher aus dem Nachlass der Witwe stammend.-- Teils etwas knickspurig, kleine Randläsuren, insgesamt recht gut erhalten.

        Vanishing Race ? Navaho

      1904. Original sepia toned photograph. Sheet size: 26.5 x 34.5 cm. Framed size: 35 x 43.5 cm. In excellent condition. Mounted and presented in a brown wooden frame with conservation glass. Original sepia photograph, signed by Curtis in black ink in the lower right-hand corner. This is one of the most iconic images from Curtis's monumental undertaking to document the life and culture of the North American Indians at the beginning of the 20th century. This particular photograph was later reproduced in the first volume of The North American Indian (Cambridge, MA., 1907) and entitled "Vanishing Race ? Navaho". The image was selected in Time Magaine's 100 Photos: The Most Influential Images of All Time: "No single image embodied the project better than The Vanishing Race, his picture of Navajo riding off into the dusty distance. To Curtis the photo epitomized the plight of the Indians, who were "passing into the darkness of an unknown future." Alas, Curtis' encyclopedic work did more than convey the theme?it cemented a stereotype. Railroad companies soon lured tourists west with trips to glimpse the last of a dying people, and Indians came to be seen as a relic out of time, not an integral part of modern American society. It's a perception that persists to this day.

        CABBAGES AND KINGS

      1904. New York: McClure, Phillips & Co., 1904. Original black cloth pictorially decorated in orange, green and yellow. First Edition of "O. Henry's" first book -- "a series of stories of revolution and adventure in Central America, integrated by a loose general plot and a single group of characters into the form of a novel" [OCAL]. (It is on page 147 of this book that the author coined the phrase "banana republic.") Born in North Carolina, Porter went to Texas to seek his fortune but wound up as a bank teller in Austin (writing a humorous column for a newspaper on the side); there he was indicted for bank embezzlement in 1896. He fled to Honduras to escape prosecution, but returned because his wife was on her deathbed, at which time he was imprisoned for three years -- after which (in 1902) he went to New York to pursue a literary career instead. He was to live only eight more years.~CABBAGES AND KINGS (the title comes from Lewis Carroll's "The Walrus and the Carpenter") draws upon Porter's years of self-imposed exile in Central America. The book was unfortunately produced by the same publisher, in similar black cloth for a binding, as THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES (McClure Phillips, 1905) -- which like this is a notoriously difficult book to find in fine condition, owing to the dulling and flaking of colors against a black background.~This however is a just-about-fine copy (the slightest of cover soil), with the colorful front cover illustration (by William Jordan, so initialed) quite sharp; the orange spine lettering as always does not stand out well against the black background. Blanck 16270. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase, this copy bears the small leather "Blairhame" bookplate of the noted collector Mrs. J. Insley Blair.

        Santander-Mediterranean Railway - Tunnels and Bridges in Spain - Includes Photos of Previous Family Works in South America - Port Construction and Early Steamships

      Spain, Brazil, circa 1904-1931. Engineering plans, manuscript drawings, photographs, certificates, letters and ephemera of English engineer Louis Marshall Bainton mainly pertaining to an important railway project in Spain, with some additional photographs from various other engineering works in Spain, and also featuring several photographs from his father's earlier maritime engineering work in Argentina and Brazil, as well as a few notable early nineteenth century inventions. Photograph album contains 85 views; a separate lot of additional photographs numbers 34 views; some images are captioned in English. Oblong 8vo. string-tied brown cloth Westminster album measuring approximately 26 x 21 cm. Most documents and letters are in Spanish, two being in English, the lot also ranging in size and format. A fascinating and uncommon engineering archive. Bainton's personal archive forms a rare firsthand memorial to the construction of the Santander-Mediterraneo railway across the Iberian Peninsula, a project designed to connect the Bay of Biscay with the Mediterranean Sea for improved trade and coast-to-coast communications. The idea for the railway was conceived in the nineteenth century, and finally began coming to fruition in 1924, as a joint Anglo-Spanish effort. Primarily designed for cargo transport, plans evolved to include passenger service and tourism for increased commercial gain. The rail line was to connect Santander, Burgos, Soria, and Calatayud. The archive consists of the following: Two official planning and blueprint guidebooks printed by the railway company for engineers only, containing detailed specifications and instructions, 46 pages of text plus 28 drafting plans in both volumes combined. These are two rare volumes, printed in Burgos, 1927, which reveal much of the planning for the train stations, including the tracks, trains and their speed, ascents and descents, scheduling, space allocated for travel agents and medical services, special requirements, and more. Nine manuscript pencil drawings for the planning of tunnels, including entrances, support systems, and drilling specifications, drawn by Bainton, each on a leaf measuring 18 x 12,5 cm and captioned in English. Together with a copy of a paper published in the Engineering and Mining Journal-Press titled, "Tunneling Operations at Big Creek, California" by American mining engineer E. D. Gardner (5 pages with illustrations), from which Bainton was gathering planning ideas. Lot of 34 gelatin silver print snapshot photographs taken at various worksites in Spain, some on the Rio Jalon and Rio Duero, illustrating the machinery used, construction methods, and the general conditions of the land. In at least one of the photographs we see camels being used for labour. Twelve views are captioned in English to verso. These vary in size from 8 x8 cm to 8,5 x 13,5 cm. One fascinating photograph album featuring numerous engineering works from the turn of the century to circa 1930. The volume begins with 59 sepia photographs taken in South America by Bainton's father who was an engineer before him, featuring early port construction and several rare photographs of the Brazilian cargo steamship Parahyba (1874-1911) which was built in England, last owned by Cia de Comercio e Navegacao, Rio De Janeiro, and lost in a fire at sea off the coast of Sergipe, Brazil while transporting sugar and cotton to Rio de Janeiro. To his father's maritime engineering album, Bainton Jr. adds 16 spectacular railway engineering photographs, illustrating the construction of new railway lines, bridge works, and passenger stations. Evidently making a tour of Spain for investigative research, views of a Madrid road bridge, the Ciruelas bridge (80 km from Madird) in the province of Guadalajara, and the Salas passenger station are captioned by Bainton and dated July 30th 1926. Loosely placing them between the blank leaves, most of these photographs are professional large format views, ranging in size from 16,5 x 11 cm to 24 x 17 cm, one of which is signed and captioned to verso in red ink by Bainton at Burgos. The album contains further photographs of engineering inventions of the period, such as a Beardmore 120 hp engine produced from 1914 to 1918 and used to power aircraft. [Louis Marshall Bainton's father, Louis H. Bainton, was the Chief Mechanical and Electrical Engineer on port construction projects in Rio de Janeiro from 1904-1913, and in Buenos Aires from 1913-1915, for the London firm C. H. Walker, Ltd.. Letters and photographs of his work are held at Special Collections Library, University of California, Santa Barbara.] A personalized invitation/ticket to the inauguration of the Cabezon de la Sierra-Soria section of railway, a ceremony held in March 1929. Stamped by the company, torn in half by the host to confirm attendance. Documents relating to Bainton's personal credentials: •His typed cdv completed circa 1930 after his three years work on the Spanish railway •Two certificates for operating industrial motorized vehicles, issued, signed and stamped in Spain, measuring 11 x 19,5 cm. •One manuscript letter of praise from David Gilmour, an administrator of the Anglo-Spanish Santander-Mediterraneó Railway Company, and three other letters of recommendation in typescript. Gilmour writes, "Dear Mr. Bainton, As I am leaving Burgos shortly now I cannot do so without telling you that your association with the Sección de Construccion of the Santander-Mediterraneo as Chief Mechanical Engineer has been entirely satisfactory... Your wide experience in the various branches of engineering have been applied to our construction requirements with resource, energy and success... you and your Department..." Louis Marshall Bainton (born 1906), was the chief mechanical engineer on the construction of the Burgos to Cabezon railway in the 1920s He began his engineering apprenticeship in 1924 through Davey, Paxman & Company, Standard Iron Works, Colchester, earning his certificate in 1927. A manuscript letter in this archive suggests that the company was involved in the Santander-Mediterraneó railway project, on which Bainton began working in 1924, at the very start of the project. He was subsequently employed directly by the Anglo-Spanish Construction Co. Ltd. of London, working for a further three years (1927-1930) on the Santander-Mediterraneó railway project in Spain as Assistant Mechanical Engineer on the Burgos-Cabezón section. The Santander-Mediterráneo railway was purposed with joining the seaports of Santander and Valencia with a 732 km line, thereby facilitating rapid transportation of cargo between two of Spain's principle seaport cities on opposite coasts. While a merchant ship would require a week to navigate around the coast of the Iberian Peninsula, the train could cross land in but a few hours. The project dates back to the 19th century. Following a public bidding in 1924, the work finally started, during the dictatorship of Miguel Primo de Rivera. A railway between Sagunto (only 30 miles from Valencia) extending to Calatayud was already in place, and would become a segment in this trans-peninsular line. By the end of 1930, most of the line was complete. The final 63 kilometres (39 mi) to construct was the stretch between Cidad de Valdeporres and the city of Santander. However, to traverse the Cantabrian Mountains and rugged terrain around it would require the several tunnels and viaducts. Various options were proposed and it was eventually decided to build a railway line with 32 tunnels between Santelices and Boo, including the Engaña Tunnel. Indeed this final section proved to be the most challenging, the construction of the famous Engaña Tunnel in and of itself lasting over seventeen years, from 1941 to 1959, employing hundreds of workers, including Republican prisoners during the first years, and still never seeing completion as the rail ties were never laid. At the time of its construction, and until recently, the Engaña Tunnel was the longest railway tunnel in Spain, with a length of 6,976 metres (22,887 ft). Some parts of the Santander-Mediterráneo railway are still in use today, though most of its lines were closed for economic reasons in 1984, at the behest of Enrique Barón, Minister of Transport, Tourism and Communications, in the government of Prime Minister Felipe González Márquez (PSOE). In 1925, the Spanish firm, Compania del Ferrocarril Burgos-Soria-Catalyud, Societe Anonima Santander-Mediterrane, bought four Babcock & Wilcox locomotives for the railway. El Santander-Mediterráneo fue un proyecto de ferrocarril que nació a principios del siglo XX (subastado en 1924), con el propósito de unir los puertos marítimos de Santander y Valencia por tren (732 km.), y para dar una rápida salida marítima a las mercancías procedentes de las provincias interiores por las que se pretendió que circulase. Éste se habría encargado de transportarla hasta Valencia en pocas horas, a diferencia de la semana que empleaba un barco mercante en cubrir la navegación alrededor de la costa de la Península Ibérica. Allí, otro navío podría haber proseguido su camino para transportar la carga a su destino final. Lo mismo sería posible en sentido inverso. Además, daría una salida marítima rápida a las mercancías originarias de la Meseta. Los tramos que llegaron a construirse del corredor Santander-Mediterráneo fueron el común con el Ferrocarril Central de Aragón (Sagunto-Teruel-Calatayud y Caminreal y Zaragoza), que sigue en funcionamiento en la actualidad en su tramo de Caminreal a Sagunto; y el Calatayud a Cidad/Dosante. No se llegaron a construir los escasos 63 km que separan Cidad de Valdeporres y la ciudad de Santander. En la mitad de este pequeño tramo se realizaron la explanación y la obra civil, pero la vía no llegó a instalarse nunca. Concretamente se efectuaron los trabajos desde Cidad de Valdeporres hasta Yera, ya en Cantabria, y desde Guarnizo hasta Sarón, puesto que en Guarnizo el Santander-Mediterráneo enlazaba con la línea Santander-Alar del Rey, actualmente en uso. En esta línea inconclusa, el Túnel de la Engaña, de 6.976 m de longitud y en el que se emplearon 19 años de trabajo, ha sido hasta fechas recientes el túnel ferroviario español de mayor longitud. En 1984, siendo ministro Enrique Barón, el gobierno central español de Felipe González Márquez (PSOE), basándose en el déficit económico, decidió cerrar aquellas líneas que no cubrieran el 23% de los gastos de explotación que generaban. Se clausuraron gran parte de los tramos del Santander-Mediterráneo que se encontraban en uso, junto con otras importantes líneas transversales, como la Vía de la Plata o el Valladolid-Ariza.

        Zemskaia kampaniia i plan "Iskry" [The zemstvo campaign and the plan of "Iskra" -- German title: Liberale Bewegung und der Plan von "Iskra"].

      Geneva: Izdatel'stvo sotsial'demokraticheskoi partiinoi literatury V. Bonch-Bruevicha i N. Lenina; Kooperativnaia Tipografiia 1904 - Small octavo (17.8 × 11 cm). Original staple-stitched self-wrappers; [3], 26, [2] pp. Printed on thin onion-skin paper. Light wear and spotting; corners somewhat creased; tiny nick to front wrapper. First and only edition of Lenin's sharp and witty denunciation of the so-called "zemstvo campaign" advanced by the Geneva-based Menshevik journal "Iskra" ("The Spark"). In a letter dated November 1904, the editors presented a plan for influencing the non-revolutionary "bourgeois opposition" in Russia by disseminating the demands of the Social Democrats through local zemstvos and discussions among intelligentsia. It was hoped to thereby stimulate liberal politicians to vote according to Social-Democrat views. In his response, Lenin fiercely ridicules the Mensheviks' ignorance of the shortcomings of liberal democracy, as well as the impracticality of tasking local zemstvos with emboldening and influencing local politicians. The front wrapper features the printed note "Only for party members"; this, as is revealed on p. 26, is a witty pun on the fact that Iskra's zemstvo plan, which was meant to be democratically disseminated across Russia, was issued with a similarly conspiratorial disclaimer, a fact Lenin finds plainly ridiculous. Item 747 in the Bernstein and Souvarine catalog, which notes that the pamphlet was distributed illegally among local party offices in Russia and "played an important role in building up the Bolshevik iron discipline" and in convincing the socialists that "pressure must be applied to the government, not liberals" (p. 126).

        The Principles and Practice of Medicine, Designed for the Use of Practitioners and Students of Medicine

      xvi, [2], 1079, [7], 8 pp. 8vo. An immensely important work of general medical knowledge, written by a co-founder of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Osler's creation of the first residency program and emphasis on teaching students through clinical experience rather than lectures led many to call him the father of modern medicine. Garrison-Morton 2231: "Osler's textbook was the best English work on medicine of its time. He became Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford in 1904. Besides being one of the greatest of all clinicians, he was possessed of a fine literary style and an extensive knowledge of medical bibliography. Garrison has written of him: "When he came to die, Osler was, in a very real sense, the greatest physician of our time? Good looks, distinction, blithe, benignant manners, a sunbright personality, radiant with kind feeling and good will toward his fellow men, an Apollonian poise, swiftness and surety of thought and speech, every gift of the gods was his; and to these were added careful training, unsurpassed clinical ability, the widest knowledge of his subject, the deepest interest in everything human, and a serene hold upon his fellows that was as a seal set upon them"." First edition, second state ('Gorgias' spelled correctly on p. vi, June 1892 ads follow text). Professionally rebound - black leather spine, cloth boards, gilt titles, new end sheets. An exceptional copy - no stains, marks, tears, or toning to pages. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1892. First Edition. Collectible; Like New/No Jacket.

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

      Tübingen, H. Laupp\'sche Buchhandlung, 1904 - 1936. 6 in 7 Bänden 28 x 22 cm, Leinen mit umlaufendem Rotschnitt 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, Bayerisch-Tirols und der Nordostschweiz und schuf in zehnjähriger Arbeit seine 1895 veröffentlichte Geographie der schwäbischen Mundart, die eine weitere Grundlage für das Wörterbuch bildete. Anschließend machte er sich an die Vervollständigung von Kellers Material, füllte zeitliche und räumliche Lücken und wertete 1897/98 insbesondere die Bestände der Stuttgarter Landes- und Hofbibliothek und der Tübinger Universitätsbibliothek aus. Bei Publikationsbeginn umfasste das Material damit um die 650.000 Zettel; es wurde bis gegen Abschluss des Werks laufend ergänzt.Die erste Lieferung des Schwäbischen Wörterbuchs erschien 1901. Fischer war bis zu seinem Tode 1920 alleiniger Redaktor, hatte aber einige wenige Helfer, von denen insbesondere Wilhelm Pfleiderer (1878–1953) zu nennen ist. Pfleiderer hatte schon am ersten Band mitgearbeitet und übernahm 1920 die Redaktion des Wörterbuchs, das er zu Ende führen konnte. Die letzte, 84. Lieferung kam 1936 heraus.\" (Wikipedia) Versand D: 20,00 EUR
