Anti-Horse Thief Association. [Kansas]
St. Paul, Ks: The News Printery, 1905. Very good.. 17pp. Original plain orange wrappers, stapled. Some light wear and soiling, pencil notations on exterior and interior of covers. Pamphlet published by the Anti-Horse Thief Association in St. Paul, Kansas, a tiny town about a hundred miles due east of Wichita. The Anti-Horse Thief Association was a long-standing vigilance committee in Kansas, established in the 1850s, presented here similar to a masonic organization. The present work provides the order for their ceremonies and rituals, including initiations, installing officers, and the funeral ceremony. Inside the front cover is a manuscript list of names recording the investigation and pursuing committees for 1914; the rear cover has the ownership inscription of Robert Leer of Vincennes, Iowa, and a date noting the last meeting he attended. While there are several early 20th-century editions in OCLC, we locate only one copy of this 1905 edition, at Pittsburg State University in Kansas. Rare and interesting.

Charles Goodman
1905. Photo album containing 23 images depicting petroglyphs, the Galloway family, and operations of the Norwood & Bluff City Oil Company in southeastern Utah. Black cloth album covers measure 7 -1/2" x 5 -3/4"; silver gel photos measure 5 -1/2" x 3 -1/2" and are mounted on recto of leaves; most photos have title in the negative but a couple have title or caption in manuscript on the photo. Likely published in the first decade of the 20th century, circa 1905. Overall very good. A few of the photos have moderate yellowing or light silvering; album covers have light wear and soiling. The photographer of this album is Charles Goodman, who was active in Colorado and in Bluff, Utah from about 1882 to the first decade of the 20th century (Mautz p. 196, 602). The Norwood & Bluff City Oil Company pictured in a couple of the images was located in Norwood, Colorado and the San Juan oil fields near Bluff, Utah. The Galloway family being represented in his album makes perfect sense; the family owned and operated the Norwood & Bluff City Oil Company, which had 2,000 acres on the San Juan oil fields and the deepest oil well in John's Canon (The Mining Investor, Volumes 59-60, p. 41). Images include: 8 photos of petroglyphs on rocks found in John's Canon, Utah; 2 photos of petroglyphs found in San Juan Canon, Utah; 5 photos depict Galloway Camp, Helen Galloway and an oil prospector's shack in John' Canon; 6 photos of the town Norwood, Colorado and the freighters of the Norwood & Bluff City Oil Company; 1 photo of a woman on a horse, possibly in Norwood (no caption); 1 photo of the interio … [Click Below for Full Description]

The first ten years, housed in 15 volumes (lacking 1905 volume I and 1907 volume I), of the French illustrated sports and leisure journal, under the editorial direction of Pierre Lafitte, composed primarily of photomontages and photo essays with captions and other small amounts of text, with occasional drawings and cartoons, on a wide range of sports and leisure activities, including automobiles, tennis, soccer, swimming, sailing, rowing, fencing, boxing, cycling, ballooning, and horseback riding, most issues with beautifully photographed covers, each issue also containing a page or so of advertisements. Profusely illustrated. Sm. folio. 3/4 leather with marbled boards, original self-wrpps. bound in. Some volumes with minor soiling and bumping along spines, one with losses to back cover. Paris (Pierre Lafitte & Co.) 1898-1907. La Vie au Grand Air was published weekly from April 1898 through April 15, 1922, with an interruption in publication during the war years, from August 2, 1914 to June 15, 1916. Under Lafitte's artistic direction, the journal was groundbreaking in its use of photography and imaginative and illustrative photographic layouts. In the December 24, 1903 issue, the question of who will win a wrestling competition is addressed with the photographs of eight contenders laid out in a question mark on the page. In a February 1904 issue, a photographic essay on motorboats is illustrated with photographs cropped to the shapes of propeller blades. These types of layouts were not yet widely used at the turn of the century. Scarce institutionally. [Attributes: Soft Co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Andreas-Salomé, Lou, Schriftstellerin, Psychoanalytikerin und Muse von Nietzsche, Rilke und Freud (1861-1937).
Sehr inhaltsreicher Brief an die Schauspielerin Else Heims-Reinhardt, am Beginn ihrer Trennung von Max Reinhardt: "Gestern sprach ich Hedwig Kontor. und war nicht wenig betrübt, so ungute Nachrichten über Ihr Ergehen zu bekommen! [...] Ueber R. denk ich so imgrunde: ob nicht in seiner schöpferischen Begabung was ist, was ihn von dorther in immer erneute Sinnesverwirrung reißt, - wissen Sie, ähnlich, wie ein Lyriker stets neue Lieben anschmachtet, die doch nur lyrische Gelegenheiten sind und seine 'Dauergefühle' nicht berühren; nur daß bei R.'s schrecklicher Potenz die Dinge so leiblich ablaufen. Tatsächlich sind diese Dinge doch nicht im Zentrum seines nordischen Wesens. Ich weiß ja nichts, doch alles spricht dafür, sowohl sein Verhältniß zu Ihnen, so wie es trotz und während solcher Zeiten manchmal blieb, als auch seine Seltsamkeiten als ob er überhängt am Weibe und irrtümlich seiner Grundsensation [?]. Jedenfalls ist er eine Mengung von großen und von argen Eigenschaften, die irgendwie nicht zu trennen sein mögen. Das Furchtbare ist jedoch, daß Sie leiden, Sie sollen auch elend aussehen. Was machen wir nur, Else? [...] Liebe Else, schreiben Sie mir doch noch von allem so daß ich ein Bild kriege: Oft mein' ich: mit R. sprechen wär gut, - ob das ginge? [...]" - Wohl auf Vermittlung Gerhart Hauptmanns hatte Lou Andreas-Salomé von 1905 bis 1908 mehrmals Max Reinhardt und seine Schauspieler am Deutschen Theater in Berlin besucht, darunter auch Else Heims, seit 1910 Max Reinhardts Ehefrau. Schon 1913 lernte Max Reinhardt die 16 Jahre jüngere Schauspielerin Helene … [Click Below for Full Description]

Andreas-Salomé, Lou, Schriftstellerin, Psychoanalytikerin und Muse von Nietzsche, Rilke und Freud (1861-1937).
Langer, tröstlicher Brief an die Schauspielerin Else Heims-Reinhardt, über deren Trennung von Max Reinhardt: "[...] Als Mutter der Beiden [Söhne Wolfgang und Gottfried] müssen Sie doch so zugehörig sich fühlen, wie eben nur eine Mutter es darf: weit über alles Persönliche hinaus bleibt ja M. R.'s Werk bestehen und gerade durch diesen persönlichsten Kern ja auch als das Ihre. Else, das muß auch über das Traurige im Personenschicksal hinübertragen: so natürlich Ihre Trauer als Frau auch ist, müssen Sie sich doch sagen: wer so viel schuf, wie M. R., der kann nicht umhin, auch zu nehmen! Die Allgemeinheit empfängt, nur die einzelne Frau neben ihm leidet [...]. Es hätte ja auch eine oberflächliche Zwischen-leidenschaft ein Anlaß sein können: da es aber so dauernd und alles beeinflussend blieb, wie Sie es selbst schildern, umfaßt es doch auch ein Recht [...]. Sie tun etwas Böses an Ihnen selber, indem Sie den Einfluß der anderen Frau auf 'Betreiben' und 'Intrigen' zurückführen. Durch die Söhne bleibt Ihnen so Vieles. Zerbrechen Sie es sich nicht durch ein Zurückbleiben hinter dem Schicksalswollen [...]". - Wohl auf Vermittlung Gerhart Hauptmanns hatte Lou Andreas-Salomé von 1905 bis 1908 mehrmals Max Reinhardt und seine Schauspieler am Deutschen Theater in Berlin besucht, darunter auch Else Heims, seit 1910 Max Reinhardts Ehefrau.

POTTER, Beatrix.
London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1905. Quarto. Original blue boards, lettered in white on spine and front cover, front cover illustration in colour, lightly marbled lavender endpapers. Touch of wear to spine ends, spine negligibly sunned, faint offsetting to endpapers, light foxing to contents; a very good copy indeed. Colour frontispiece, 9 coloured plates, black and white illustrations in the text, all by the author. First edition, first impression. This was the last book Norman Warne worked on with Potter, and his proposal of marriage was sent during its creation. Potter completed the project alone; it was published two months after Warne's untimely death. It was the first of Potter's works to be published in a larger format. The illustrated endpapers, introduced the previous year, were forgotten for this work, Potter writing "I conclude there is no time to get an end-paper [sic] design done - unless Mr. Stokoe has already designed one - I do not mind one way or another"; the book appeared with plain or lavender endpapers (Linder p. 172). The later edition published in a smaller format, to match Potter's other works, was renamed The Tale of the Pie and the Patty-Pan. Linder p. 172. [Attributes: First Edition]

Goodman, Charles
1905. Photo album containing 23 images depicting petroglyphs, the Galloway family, and operations of the Norwood & Bluff City Oil Company in southeastern Utah. Black cloth album covers measure 7 ½" x 5 ¾"; silver gel photos measure 5 ½" x 3 ½" and are mounted on recto of leaves; most photos have title in the negative but a couple have title or caption in manuscript on the photo. Likely published in the first decade of the 20th century, circa 1905. Overall very good. A few of the photos have moderate yellowing or light silvering; album covers have light wear and soiling. The photographer of this album is Charles Goodman, who was active in Colorado and in Bluff, Utah from about 1882 to the first decade of the 20th century (Mautz p. 196, 602). The Norwood & Bluff City Oil Company pictured in a couple of the images was located in Norwood, Colorado and the San Juan oil fields near Bluff, Utah. The Galloway family being represented in his album makes perfect sense; the family owned and operated the Norwood & Bluff City Oil Company, which had 2,000 acres on the San Juan oil fields and the deepest oil well in John's Canon (The Mining Investor, Volumes 59-60, p. 41). Images include: 8 photos of petroglyphs on rocks found in John's Canon, Utah; 2 photos of petroglyphs found in San Juan Canon, Utah; 5 photos depict Galloway Camp, Helen Galloway and an oil prospector's shack in John' Canon; 6 photos of the town Norwood, Colorado and the freighters of the Norwood & Bluff City Oil Company; 1 photo of a woman on a horse, possibly in Norwood … [Click Below for Full Description]

Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co., 1905. St. John, J. Allen. First Edition. Quarto size, [156] pp., illustrated. James Allen St. John (1872-1957) was an American author, artist and illustrator, especially remembered for his illustrations for the novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs (although he illustrated numerous works) and is considered by many to be "The Godfather of Modern Fantasy Art". St. John's artistic career began in 1898 studying at the Art Students League of New York, which was followed by his first commercial relationship, with the New York Herald. He spent time in Paris from 1906 to 1908 at the Académie Julian, then moved to Chicago around 1912 where he worked continuously with publisher A. C. McClurg & Co.; the present volume, "The Face in the Pool," which he both wrote and illustrated, is considered to be his masterpiece. ___DESCRIPTION: Publisher's grey cloth with elaborate stamped lettering and illustration of a knight on horseback in green, white, black and gilt, backstrip lettered in white and gilt, with gilt, white and green vignette, dedication page with pictorial wreath, headpieces, tailpieces, and large pictorial initials, four full-page color plates including frontis, fourteen black and white illustrations in text; quarto size (10.5" by 8"), pagination: [i-vii] viii [ix-xiv] 15-155 [156], first edition. ___CONDITION: A near fine copy, quite scarce in such fine and complete condition, with a hint of rubbing at the head, tail and corners but not so much as to cause any loss or fraying, internally bright with a sound and tight binding, with only a stray light mar … [Click Below for Full Description]

1905. Edinburgh & London: T.N. Foulis Press, 1905. Slim 8vo, 70 pp. Bound by Pender in lush decorated morocco with Whistler's stylized butterfly with a stinger on upper cover in green and purple. With 16 illustrations including a frontispiece caricature portrait of the author. Top edge gilt and gilt ruling at turn-ins, with silk endpapers. Very minor foxing to edges, final leaf of ads pasted together with final page of text. § Limited edition of 1000 copies. The first title in the publisher's Spirit of the Age series was Macfall's biography of James Abbott McNeill Whistler, the enigmatic and acerbic American painter. This is an interesting association copy, being inscribed to Sir Gervase Beckett ("Gee") by Elizabeth Helen Vane-Tempest-Stuart, Marchioness of Londonderry. She was known as the "last great political hostess" and he was the younger brother of Lord Grimthorpe, father of Rupert Hart-Davis, and his daughter married Anthony Eden later Prime Minister. Beckett may well have been a member of the "Ark" a literary group founded by the Marchioness that used to meet at her magnificent London mansion Londonderry House in Park Lane. A later hand has identified the inscriptions and added: "Given to me Xmas 1959 MB" and below that in pencil "Ex Alex Wright LJ July 82".

This is the first appearance of this word, which was suggested by W.B. Hardy. In circulatory physiology the Starling legacy is conceptually one of the most influential in the twentieth century. His contributions to a modern understanding of body functions, especially the "Starling Sequence", embracing both central circulatory function and fluid exchange at the capillary level was and remains the unifying theme of contemporary circulatory theory".
