        Photo Negatives - Mining in Mexico - Guggenheim

      Mexico 1905 - Mexico, circa 1905-1910. Set of 36 original panorama format photographic negatives, being views of at least five profitable mines in central Mexico, mainly in the states of San Luis Potosí and Zacatecas. Negatives measure approximately 31 x 9 cm. Together with 3 black and white photographs, corresponding with negatives from the collection. A scant few negatives chipped at corners, otherwise in very good condition with crisp images. The lot housed in a green paper folder for protection. Panoramic views are scarce in any condition, the negatives even more so. These being substantial in number, and in such remarkable condition, make for an exceptionally pleasing acquisition. A fascinating visual archive of Guggenheim mining and smelting operations in Mexico, holdings which contributed substantially to the silver and lead empire's wealth. Manuscript captions imbedded in the negatives serve to identify specific mines as follows: Charcas seen in 18 views, Bonanza in 3, Mala Noche in 1, Asientos in 2, Veta Grande in 2, leaving 10 views from one or more locales unnamed. Most, possibly all, of these mines were discovered and their ores worked as early as the sixteenth century. Either abandoned or used minimally, they would now be revived and modernized with great ambition, at least until the Mexican Revolution when most mining operations were halted. The mines shown in these panorama photographic negatives include the following: • The Charcas mines in the municipality of San Luis Potosí, central Mexico, an area rich in minerals and oil, containing substantial deposits of sulphides of silver, lead, copper and zinc. Charcas went through constant rise and fall in economy of the centuries, directly related to historic conflicts which occurred in the area. In 1862 with the aid of aviaton companies, the mines were modernized and re-established. In 1911, the National Metallurgical Company and the American Smelting and Refining Company acquired the mining rights of the company Minera Tiro General, which had been founded some years before. In 1924 it changed hands once again to become the Conpañia Minera Asarco S.A., which built a concentrator that started operating in 1925. The town of Charcas benefited greatly with the arrivals of telephone and electricity, the installation of which was paid for by these mining companies. • The Veta Grande Mine, in Zacatecas, north-central Mexico, a classic epithermal silver-gold (low sulphide) deposit. The state of Zacatecas is reputed for its rich deposits of silver and other minerals, its colonial architecture and its importance during the Mexican revolution. Much of the state’s colonial history has been related to its mineral production, especially of silver. In colonial times, only the richest portions of the oxidized veins were mined, however, later sulphide mineralization was also exploited. Metal distribution in the veins varies, however the Veta Grande system is predominately silver bearing with gold and base metals. The City of Zacatecas was first settled by the Spanish in the early 1500's after the discovery of these substantial silver veins. By 1588, large quantities of silver were being shipped from this region to Spain. With increased production, by 1877 silver from the Zacatecas Silver District accounted for 60 percent of the value of all Mexican exports, making it one of Mexico's wealthiest and largest cities of the era. Presently, silver production in Zacatecas state is the primary contributor for Mexico's status as the world's largest producer of silver, accounting for 17% of the world's output. • Bonanza - an important mine in the municipality of Mazapil, also in the state of Zacatecas. Originally established circa 1582-85 by Francisco de Urdinola, M. Guggenheim Sons in 1902/1903 "quietly acquired" the mining operation, known as the Bonanza y Anexas. Licenciado Emeterio de la Garza, a member of president Díaz’s inner circle, represented the Guggenheims. Acting for Guggenheim Exploration, it

        THE FANCY.

      - With a Prefatory Memoir and Notes by John Masefield and thirteen illustrations by Jack B. Yeats. Pp. [ii]+30+xxiv+88, frontispiece and 12 text or headpiece illustrations, the title page printed in red & black, glossary; f'cap. 8vo; printed grey paper wrappers with bevelled fore-edges, the backstrip slightly discoloured, edges a trifle rubbed and creased; fore and bottom edges uncut; upper hinge tender, a little light foxing; Elkin Matthews, London, 1905. First edition thus, first issue? (published at half-a-crown - the more common Satchel Series issue appearing in the same year at the increased price of one shilling). *From the library of Australian bibliophile Claude Prance, with his small book label above his pencilled signature on verso of upper wrapper. Originally published in 1820 under the pseudonym of Peter Corcoran (a famous boxer of the 1770s). John Hamilton Reynolds (1796-1852) is today best remembered as a close friend of Keats. His first volume of verse was published in 1814, and he initially devoted most of his time to literature and sport, but from about 1818 onwards (particularly after the death of Keats in 1820) he became more committed to his legal career. John Masefield, in his Introduction to this edition, notes that The Fancy was written shortly before Reynolds' marriage, and suggests that it can be viewed as 'his final parting with his youth, his poetry, and the forbidden delights of youth. Instead of going with his friends to talk art, or to watch boxing, he was to sit at home and play cribbage'. The glossary at the end of this volume is of sporting (and drinking) slang of the period, and defines The Fancy as 'Life preserved in spirit'.

        Album with Forty-nine Original Photographs from a Voyage to Palermo and Naples, with Four Original Watercolours made during the Trip, and Numerous Ephemera, Including Dinner Menus, Advertising Leaflets, and Twenty-five Colour and Black and White Printed Postcards].

      1905 - 1905. Quarto (ca. 25x19,5 cm). 49 gelatin silver prints mounted on 30 stiff card leaves, including two large ones ca. 11,5x15,5 cm (4 ½ x 6 in); and the rest ca. 6x10 cm (2 ¼ x 4 in) or slightly smaller. With four original watercolours, including two larger ones, ca. 14x23 cm (5 ½ x 9 in), and two smaller ones, ca. 14x9 cm (5 ½ x 3 ½ in). With seven colour printed dinner menus of various sizes, two printed advertising leaflets, nine colour and fourteen black and white printed postcards. The majority of the images and printed materials are with period manuscript ink captions on the mounts. Period black half sheep album by "John J. Banks & Son" with cloth boards. Owner's gilt stamp on the front board "H.C.F. 1905". Album mildly rubbed and loosened at hinges, but overall a very good copy with a bright and interesting ephemera collection. Beautiful keepsake album from the 1905 cruise of a group of English tourists along the Mediterranean coast of the southern Italy. The travelling party left London on the January 13th on board RMS "Orizaba" of the Orient Pacific Line and proceeded to Naples via Plymouth and Marseilles. They spent over a month in Palermo and afterwards visited Pompeii and a famous Flavian Amphitheater in Pozzuoli, before leaving from Naples on board SS "Ormuz" in the end of March. Most likely the album was compiled by "Miss H. Fawkes": her name appears in the official printed list of passengers of RMS "Orizaba" mounted at the beginning of the album, and these initials coincide with the owner's gilt stamp on the front cover of the album. The majority of photographs show Palermo including its narrow streets and courtyards with laundry hanging out of the windows, old harbour with fishing boats, local shepherds and vegetable sellers. Several photos show views of the monastery of Santa Maria di Gesù and cloister of the abbey of Monreale. There are also images taken on a riding tour to Mount Pellegrino on the eastern side of the Bay of Palermo; the creator of the album apparently present on these pictures, together with her sister (?) "Miss V. Fawkes" and "Lady Esther Smith". Among other images are portraits of lively "Nurses in the Villa Nationale, Naples", views of the coast of Corsica and Sardinia, and the harbour of Naples. The ephemera include seven colourful dinner menus finished in manuscript, and two advertising leaflets from RMS "Orizaba" and Italian hotels. Souvenir postcards show RMS "Orizaba", Palermo and costumes of its inhabitants, ruins of Pompeii. Watercolours include views of the harbours of Gibraltar and Naples taken from deck of RMS "Orizaba", and sketches of a boat in Marseille, and a flower from Monte Pellegrino. Overall a very attractive travel keepsake. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Headquarters of the Metropolitan Police, Detective Bureau, Washington, D.C., January 19, 1905. Identification Wanted [.] Gessler Resseau [sic]

      Metropolitan Police Dept, N.p. [Washington DC] 1905 - Relic of the briefly celebrated case of Gessler Rosseau, an ultra-patriotic domestic terrorist who, for a period of a few years around the turn of the century, made it his mission to "rid the country.of foreign things." At the time of release of this broadside, Rosseau/Russell was under incarceration in the District of Columbia jail for attempting to dynamite the statue of Frederick the Great at the D.C. Arsenal; under questioning, Rosseau admitted to being behind the plot to sink the steamer "Umbria" at the New York pier in 1903, and also claimed responsibility for a host of other actions (not all of them credible) including the sinking of the White Star Liner "Naronic" in 1893 and supplying explosives to both Cuban revolutionaries and Irish nationalists. "Rosseau" (apparently a misspeling of "Rousseau") was a pseudonym; the subject's identity appears never to have been conclusively established, though several contemporary accounts identified him as Gessner Russell, a one time Cape Nome gold miner and demolition expert. A police psychiatric profile, published in a March, 1905 New York Times article, described Rosseau thus: ".while by nature tender and averse to violence, and always insisting that it was never his intention to harm or take human life.Russell has developed his Anglophobia into acute mania and has thus been led to employ the results of a lifelong study of explosives for the purpose of rendering what he terms "object lessons" to the hated race." Broadside. Single sheet, printed recto only; ca. 10.5" x 8" (26cm x 20cm). Old folds and edgewear; minor splitting; faint indication of postal cancellation on verso; complete and Good. Signed in type by Richard Sylvester, Chief of Police.
