      - Radierung und Mischtechnik, teils aquarelliert, auf cremefarbenem Velin, innerhalb der Darstellung links unten mit Bleistift signiert und datiert „F. Schmutzer 24.XII.1905". 21,5:25,5 cm. Provenienz: Galerie Oevermann, Frankfurt am Main. Literatur: Weixlgärtner 26. Probedruck von der ungereinigten Platte. Schmutzer nahm für diese seltene Radierung ein eigens Gemälde als Vorlage, das zweite, das er auf der Akademie gemalt hatte. Das Gemälde muß deshalb um 1890 entstanden sein. Erworben wurde es seinerzeit von dem sehr erfolgreichen Unternehmer der späten Donaumonarchie Karl Wittgenstein (1847-1913). Dieser war ein großzügiger Mäzen und Förderer der Wiener Sezessionisten, zu denen Ferdinand Schmutzer seit 1901 gehörte.

        SEA POWER IN ITS RELATION TO THE WAR OF 1812

      London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company, Limited, 1905. 2 volumes. First edition. Beautifully decorated with many illustrations, maps and battle diagrams. Large 8vo, publisher’s original ribbed navy-blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spines, t.e.g. ix, 423; 437, index pp. A very good and handsome set, bindings and textblocks clean, hinges strong and tight, just some mellowing to the cloth and light evidence of age but in all very well preserved. FIRST EDITION IN HANDSOME CONDITION. In this work, as well as through its predecessor entitled THE INFLUENCE OF SEA POWER UPON HISTORY, 1660-1783, Mahan demonstrates the considerable ties between naval warfare and the history of the modern world. He was one of the first historians ever to seriously examine this correlation. This treatise had a lasting influence upon American military thought, helping to convince our leaders that a strong navy was a necessity (as it subsequently proved to be, in two world wars).

Scarce Hasegawa crepe paper juvenile calendar book, with no copies located on OCLC First Search and not in Sharf. 13.5 cm square. 7 leaves of crepe paper, or 14 pp. Bright colored illustrations on every page, depicting with each month generally with some quintessential activity or venue loosely associated with the time of year: New Year's Holidays, preparing for examinations, spring vacation, school girl's exercise, the Festival of Flags, gold fish, a rice field, morning-glories for sale, insect hunting, a fishing boat, autumnal tints at Uyeno Park and imitating needle work. Some of these scenes may not appear to be so integrally tied to a particular month, but regardless, all the illustrations highlight children, their energy, curiosity, and zest for life. Light wear at edges. Color very bright, and overall a very handsome copy of a rarity.

        The STEWART PATENT (CUT GEAR) HORSE CLIPPER. A Small Investment and Big Returns. CLIP YOUR HORSES

      [Chicago]: [Chicago Flexible Shaft Company], (n. d.). Circa 1905. Thin offwhite paper printed in black and red. Fold lines; occasional creasing, minor soil and loss to edges, not interfering with text. Slightly rough left edge, suggesting the sheet may have been a fold-out advertisement in another publication at some point. About VG.. Broadsheet, printed recto and verso. B/w engravings, b/w/red center illustration to recto. 36" x 23-3/4" An extraordinary piece of promotional literature for the Chicago Flexible Shaft Company, specialists in sheep-shearing and horse clipping equipment. The recto features a full-sheet ad for the company's 1902 Chicago Clipper, a hand-cranked version designed for individual use, while the verso offers two commercial versions (one ceiling-mounted, one electric) as well as a half-sheet advertisement for Clark Carriage Heaters, a coal-burning personal foot heater designed for use in automobiles. The ad on the recto in particular stresses the health benefits of clipping for horses as well as their owners, albeit in rather awkward prose and printing composition: "It's Taking Cold being put to bed in a nasty sweat that kills a horse. All Sorts of Pneumonia, Rheumatism and worse: Besides, Clipping saves three fourths of your currying and you can do it at least twice as thoroughly.....That opens up the pores and Saves the Kidneys from overwork and disease." The high quality of the materials and the ease of operation also recieve extravagant praise: the machine is guaranteed for six years because "[w]e can afford to, for it's perfect" and is so easy to use that "A Child can turn the crank and not tire." John K. Stewart ultimately held over 80 patents, and the Stewart speedometer was used in the first Model Ts. In 1910 the Chicago Flexible Shaft Co. expanded into the home appliance market with an electric iron, under the brand name Sunbeam, which became a premier manufacturer of appliances; the company formally renamed itself Sunbeam Corporation in 1946, and is still in operation today. Rare. We find no copies on OCLC nor any in the trade.

Dick, a founding director of the Edison Ore Milling Syndicate and by 1905, the foreign agent promoting Edison's battery in Europe. Edison informs Dick that as he has established battery production facilities in Germany, England, and France, as well as in America, the company should be able to meet demand throughout the world: "[...] I would undoubtedly be able to make more satisfactory terms for handling this business than any one else, and since you are largely interested in all of the three main foreign companies, you would of course benefit by any additional business that such companies might do in other countries outside of their own territories. Therefore [...] I will be obliged if you will sign the subscribed consent, agreeing that all future negotiations for foreign countries shall be left entirely to me [...]". - Duly countersigned by Dick and a witness. Leaves creased and moderately toned; perforation at upper left corner of each leaf.

        THE COLONEL'S DREAM.

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., Inc., 1905. : , 1905. Hardcover first edition - The very uncommon first issue with Chesnutt's name misspelled on both the front cover and the spine; this error was caught by Chesnutt when a sample was sent to him at the beginning of July, and he was assured by the publisher on July 5th that 'not a great number' had been bound thus. This novel, the last to be published during his lifetime (and published just 6 years after his first book) was a commercial failure. 294 pages. Very good condition in red cloth with gold lettering on the front cover and spine: a gift inscription on the front endpaper, lower corners slightly bumped and some slight spine slant - but overall a very attractive copy, with little soiling to the covers, bright lettering, and clean, flexible pages. .

        Collection of Commemorative Japanese Military Propaganda Postcards

      Group of 80 colorful pictorial postcards (3 duplicates), celebrating the Imperial Navy and the naval air force during the Meiji, Taish , and early Sh wa periods in Japan, often depicting specific war heroes or leaders along with particular ship and/or airplane models, many with traditional Japanese floral and geometric motifs and background decoration, unused. Beautifully illustrated. Each approx. 3-1/2" x 5-1/2". Loose as issued, housed in a modern album. Various cities (Japan) n.d. (circa 1905-1935). The Meiji period in Japan, which lasted from 1868 to 1912, was the time when Japanese society switched from an isolated feudal society to a more modern one, with fundamental changes to its social structure, internal politics, economy, military, and foreign relations. It was followed by the Taish period, which lasted until 1926, and is considered a more liberal time when political power shifted from the elder statesmen to the National Diet legislature and the democratic parties. The start of the Sh wa period was marked by a move into political totalitarianism, ultranationalism, and fascism, culminating in Japan's invasion of China in 1937. During this period, there was an increase in militarism and isolationism as Japanese power grew in Asia, and by the time of the invasion, Japan's navy was the third largest in the world. These postcards are a symbol of modernity, consumerism, mass production, commercial art, and an advertisement for the national culture of Japan.
