French was affiliated with the Glasgow School of Art and likely a colleague of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. At the base of the primary drawing French has written "Ex Libris Annie French. Mr. John Baillie gave this book to me 1910." On the facing page at the base, in her same hand, is written "Ex Libris Charles J. Lauder Azola Thorntonhall Lanarkshire 1919. From Annie French Tulse Hill London" Charles J. Lauder (1841-1920) was a an artist best known for his landscapes, architectural paintings, and seascapes who also studied at the Glasgow School.

      1905 - Ensemble manuscrit constitué d'un almanach et d'un feuillet complémentaire. L'almanach: Sa couverture représente une ode au vin signée Guiguet avec "croquis de François" (sans doute la même personne). La dernière page est une lettre au crayon demandant à sa soeur de le sortir de l'asile de Bron parce qu'il va mieux! Le feuillet complémentaire: Utopie économique écrite par un aliéné de l'Hôpital psychiatrique Saint-Anne. Il propose de remplacer dans le monde entier les billets de banque par des billets-actions et des billets-obligations-des Etats. Les salaires seront divisés en: "salaire de l'existence" (le minimum vital) et "salaire de la corporation" (rémunération du travail). Cette utopie est inspirée à l'auteur par "une vision de Jésus, verbe des travailleurs"; le "Jésuitisme" représenterait la doctrine de Jésus. Il est signé "Dr Abouchard dit Drevet, Christ-Dieu". On suppose que l'almanach et son supplément "le Jésuitisme" sont passés d'un (ou deux) aliéné de Sainte-Anne à un autre aliéné du Vinatier. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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
