Across The Frontier Appendix : The Fauna Of Tibet. Index. PREFACE: 'In the following pages I have endeavoured to lay before the reader an account of two journeys under taken in Tibet, in districts situated many hundreds of miles apart and under diametrically opposite conditions. The first expedition penetrated into the interior of uninhabited and barren regions of the Northern Desert at a time when Tibet was rigidly closed to foreigners. The second led through the rich and thickly populated valleys of the Brahmaputra, and was made with the cognisance and permission of the Lhasa Government, though only rendered possible by the notable success of Sir Francis Younghusband's Mission. The natural obstacles inseparable from exploration in Tibet are so varied and numerous, that but little progress would be made were it not for the aid given by those who are interested in travel and who are willing to render every assistance in their power. I therefore take this opportunity of tendering my thanks to all who have contributed to the success of the journeys here described, and more particularly to Colonel St. G. Gore, R.E., Mr. J. Eccles, and the Officers of the Survey of India ; Major M. Ray, D.S.O., Intelligence Branch ; and Sir Clements Markham, K.C.B., and the Council of the Royal Geographical Society. November 1905. C. G.

        Original charcoal and gouache drawing of an old woman wearing a white head scarf, 9 ½ x 13 inches, on brown paper, inscribed "Your sincere friend Mina Loy", undated but circa 1949-1952

      Although best known as one of the most important early modernist poets, Mina Loy was highly regarded as an artist. In drawings, paintings, collages, decorated lampshades, and relief constructions, she earned the admiration of Joseph Cornell, Marcel Duchamp, among many others. She attended art schools in London, Munich, and Paris and exhibited at some of the more famous art shows of the early 20th Century, including the 1905 Salon d'Automne in Paris, the 1914 Free Exhibition of International Futurists in Rome, the 1917 Independents' Exhibition in New York City, in addition to being shown later at the gallery of her son-in-law, Julien Levy, in New York. By the early 1950s, Loy was living in a small apartment in New York City, where her most ambitious art works, the assemblages and constructions based on her experiences and encounters with the down and out in the Bowery, were created.This drawing, which is undated, must have been done between 1949-1952, during the period when Loy was living in Irene Klempner's communal boarding house in the Bowery, a period in which Loy's intense interest in the life around her was engaged: "From Mina's perspective, the bums represented her lifelong fear of "outcasting." To most people they were human wreckage, indistinguishable in their grime and degradation, but in her eyes they were individuals with habits and histories. Within weeks of her move to Stanton Street, she had made friends with the regulars and introduced them to members of the household as "red" or "Whitey." . . . she sketched them from her window and sent them on errands so that she could give them a quarter." Loy began making assemblages using materials found on the streets of the Bowery, at the same time as she was writing poems such as "Hot Cross Bum": "While writing "Hot Cross Bum," Mina was constructing Bowery scenes with materials which, like her poetic images, were taken from the street. Like Picasso's collages, Mina's assemblages were incongruous couplings of commonplace objects, and like Duchamp's ready-mades, they seemed to thumb their nose at middle-class culture. But unlike either of these innovative recyclers, Mina brought to her shabby materials an acute sense of the cost involved for those who searched the garbage cans: rather than passing as outsides, as they avant-garde had done, they actually lived at the bottom of the heap. . . . In these new works, she was reflecting on her own perspective, that of a person of higher status looking from her window at the derelicts below. But to understand her constructions, one had to see through her eyes. When she showed the bums in low relief, she mocked an artistic trend that made it unthinkable to treat subjects of such low status that they went "on relief." And while her objects adopted the outside stance of the Salon des Refusés, her refuse was recombined not to assail artistic convention, as Duchamp had done, but to make it more responsive. As a name for these disturbing objects, she proposed "Refusees" - a punning blend of refuse, Refusés, and refugees, which summed up her long itinerary from West Hampstead to the Bowery." - Carolyn Burke, Becoming Modern: The Life of Mina Loy (N. Y.: Farrar Straus Giroux, 1996), pp. 409-420. The touching inscription on this drawing suggests the possibility that it might have been given to the subject of the drawing, although we have no way of tracing provenance back to its original owner. In light of the fact that the drawing was done on a piece of scrap paper, as its edges indicate, and may well have been given to the subject, a woman Mina Loy met on the Bowery, the drawing is in very good condition. Framed and glazed.

Het boek is een persiflage op Bunyans ‘Eens christens Reize naar de Eeuwigheid'. Dirk de Eenvoudige is voetiaan en wil zijn broer Jan, een coccejaan, te Delft nog eenmaal bezoeken. Dirk en zijn zonen worden in Rotterdam opgelicht en ontdekken in Delft dat broer Jan twee jaar daarvoor al overleden is. Na 52 uur van huis weggeweest te zijn, komen zij berooid weer terug in hun dorp.Er bestaat nogal wat verwarring over de datering van de verschillende uitgaven van de Boerenreis. Voor de eerste druk worden genoemd 1803 (Scheepers II), 1804 (Saalmink) en 1805 (Van Doorninck); voor de tweede 1816 (Scheepers II) en 1817 (Saalmink). Die verwarring is waarschijnlijk veroorzaakt doordat op de titelpagina geen jaartal staat, maar Gedrukt in Holland, in het IV jaar der negentiende eeuw en Gedrukt in Nederland, in het XVII jaar der negentiende eeuw. Het is maar in welk jaar je de eeuw laat beginnen."

        Typed Letter Signed, 4to, Hyattsville, Maryland, April 27, 1974

      Cain refers to author John O'Hara (1905-70) as well as to Judge John Sirica, remembered as the Watergate judge who ordered President Nixon to turn in his White House tapes over to the Senate committee. Cain writes, "In re THE CHRISTMAS SPEERT[sic], the piece I suspect of being O'Hara's first in New York: I reprinted it on the Christmas Page, December 25, of the New York World, 1929, as I pin down by the following recollection: I was in touch with the big money at the time, so I could have produced a play, and on the basis of this piece sent for O'Hara to try and persuade him to write it....I invited him down to the apartment...in October 1929, on East Nineteenth Street...my wife Elina wasn't there...." He explains why the meeting had to take place only in 1929 and continues. "O'Hara seemed surprised at my admiration for the piece, indifferent to my idea, and utterly indifferent to me. He was not the easiest person to like, being quite cold in his manner, even at age 24...I do not think I was alone in that reaction to him. He wasn't noted for his charm. But on paper I was, and still am, his potato...." One holograph correction in this last paragraph. Signed, "Jim." He continues in a postscript mentioning Judge Sirica. "Now to mooch something off you, since I take it you're partly Italian: This judge we have here, who has his name pronounced SirIca -- Shouldn't that be SIRica?...on the basis of operatic Italian, which I'm fairly loaded with." Cain replies to Prof. Bruccoli, Professor of English, Univ. of South Carolina who sent a copy of a typed letter from O'Hara to Cain, undated. In the letter, O'Hara asks Cain for money. Bruccoli writes to Cain in full at the bottom of the copy of O'Hara's letter. "Dear Mr. Cain - This [O'Hara's letter] may jiggle your flow of recollection." John O'hara is perhaps best remembered for his novels, "Butterfield, 8" (1935) and "Pal Joey," (1940). Fine in literary association.

        Photo Album]: Images of Vergennes, Vermont and Lake Champlain; New Hampshire, Gerrish Island and Camden, Maine

      1905 - Commercially produced blank album measuring 10.5" x 12" with associated loose photos. Bound in half-leather and cloth boards, white silk moire endpapers. The entire collection consists of 153 photographs, with 69 tipped-in on the album boards and 84 loose prints. Most are platinum prints (including two cyanotypes) measuring about 7.5" x 4.5", with some dozens or so ranging in size from 1.5" x 4" to 6" x 8". Included are a few variant outdoor shots of the same or similar subject that have been trimmed into odd panoramic sizes. The album is neatly split in thirds at the spine with some scattered soiling to the exposed boards, thus good only, some laid-in images with scattered nicks and short tears at the edges, overall very good.Beautifully composed photographs taken by an unknown photographer, most likely a woman, from the town of Vergennes, Vermont. Images of the town's streets and houses taken at the height of its industrial boom in the late 19th Century, with many interior studies of women reading, outdoor and landscape views of mostly women in the surrounding countryside and creeks, and boating on Lake Champlain. Many other images of women vacationing and sailing off the Maine coast at Gerrish Island and Camden, and at leisure in a New Hampshire wood. Included is one photograph of four women in a wood, one of whom is reaching her left hand behind a large format camera, which suggests that the photographer might be her. An immensely appealing collection of images by this unknown Vermont artist.

        Photo Album]: White Mountains of New Hampshire

      New Hampshire 1905 - Oblong small quarto. Measuring 7.5" x 12". Textured tan leather over stiff paper boards with "Photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 70 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 3.5" x 5.5" and 5.75" x 8", some with captions in the negative. Very good photo album with rubbing and edgewear with near fine photographs.A beautiful collection of turn of the century photography primarily of Gorham, New Hampshire taken by C.H. Hobbs. The album was compiled by a professional photographer and contains images that were probably taken with commercial use in mind. Gorham is located in the White Mountains and relies heavily on tourism for town revenue. The album opens with views of Gorham and classic American small town charm including a horse-drawn carriage and a photo of the Alpine Photographic Studio. The photos also show the rolling hills and mountains just beyond the town. One photo shows a winter scene of a road, another shows a small church surrounded by houses and immature pine trees, others show the town from Prospect Ledge just outside the borders giving an entire view of the community. One particularly wonderful photograph shows the Androscoggin River with a photographic effect which makes the water appear painted into the image. Another photo shows the Second Crawford House, the largest resort in the White Mountains at the time, as seen through the Crawford Notch. Following this there is a photo of the Tip Top House, "the oldest surviving building on the summit of Mount Washington" which is believed to be "the oldest extant mountain-top hostelry in the world." Later in the album the photos focus on the various waterfalls of the region as well as lakes and other waterways. The photos also feature Bretton Woods, Poland Springs, and Shelburne, New Hampshire. The end of the album is primarily compiled of portrait photographs including group photos of young girls and cabinet cards featuring fashionably dressed Victorian women.A wonderful collection of exquisite and well-composed photography taken presumably to promote tourism in the White Mountain region of New Hampshire.

George Frederick Kunz (1856 - 1932) was an American mineralogist and mineral collector. His expertise gained him and job at Tiffany & Co, and soon became vice-president of the company. He headlined the American mining and minerology exhibits at international expositions and "World's Fairs" between 1889 and 1904. He gained much notoriety for identifying a new gem variety of the mineral spodumene which was named "Kunzite" in his honor. *This work predates Kunz's accaimed works "The Book of the Pearl" and "Curious Lore of Precious Stones".The California State Mining Bureau was established by the legislature in 1880 in response to the need for information on the occurrence, mining, and processing of gold in the state. Its focus was on California's mining industry and the Governor appointed the State Mineralogist to head the Buruea. It was the precursor governmental office to the current California Geological Survey. The Bulletins of The California State Mining Bureau were published multiple times a year from 1888-1926, with a total of 97 bulletins issued. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Betts's Patent Portable Globe

      London : George Philip & Son Ltd., circa 1905. Original card tube with printed paper label containing a cloth globe, stitched over a collapsible metal umbrella frame, with eight colour litho printed gores (a few splits and stains). When opened the globe is: 15.3 inches (39cm) in diameter, the length of the tube is 72 cm. The collapsible globe was invented by John Bett around 1860 and was manufactured by Philips following Bett's death in 1863. They were especially popular in schools. This example can be dated by the inclusion of the Northern Territory as part of South Australia within a federated Australian continent (post-1901), and the three British South African colonies have yet to unify as the Union of South Africa (so pre-1910). These fragile globes rarely survive, the unusual presence of the original tube has no doubt been instrumental in its preservation. It is recommended that conservation is conducted to prevent the splits extending further.

Kupka worked as an illustrator of books & posters &, during his early years in Paris, became known for his satirical drawings for newspapers & magazines". French editor Jean de Bonnefon (1866-1928) was "a Bachelor of Arts & a member of the Society of Men of Letters. He is the author of numerous articles which were critical of religious policy & the clergy. Jean de Bonnefon played a decisive role in the drafting of the Law of Separation of Church & State. He lived for some time in Vienna, in the privacy of the Hofburg, of which he knew the most dramatic secrets, & at the Vatican, of which he knew the intrigues". Published 15 November 1905.

Lauriat/on his 64th birthday, January 12, 1906/by/Robert Harrington/(Born Oct. 31, 1841)/as a specimen of his binding/at the age of 64". Robert Carrington ( 1841- ). There is a record of a Robert Carrington, bookbinder in an 1892 publication Public Documents of Massachusetts: Annual Reports of various Public Officers and Institutions for the year 1891 (page 443).Charles E. Lauriat (1842-1920) was a leading bookseller and publisher in Boston. "For 58 years he carried on the culturing and illuminating business of finding and selling the best of the world's literature, and he knew every angle of the trade for which he stood as a mentor and guide. In 1872 Charles Lauriat formed a partnership with Dana Estes, and their establishment was located at 301 Washington Street (except for a short interruption at the time of the Boston fire) until 1906. In 1898 the firm of Estes & Lauriat, which had been pioneers in the field of subscription bookselling as well as general publishing, separated into two corporations. the Dana Estes Co., publishers, and Charles E. Lauriat Co., retailers. Many famous people were frequenters of the store, such as Oliver Wendell Holmes and Justice Holmes, James G. Blaine, Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Phillips Brooks; and innumerable fine libraries in New England and throughout the country owe their beginnings and their development to that store. Very early in the business, the habit of yearly visits to London was started and for nearly fifty years these annual trips were an important phase of the business, and no American buyer was better known to the old book-men of England from whose stocks and auction sales hundreds of cases started for Boston each year. In the development of mail order bookselling, especially in the field of rare books and remainders, Mr. Lauriat was especially successful, and their mailing list of book buyers was one of the most valuable in the country., while hundreds of New England's summer visitors made regular yearly purchases."(The Publishers' Weekly. American Book-Trade Journal. Volume XCVII, January to June, 1920). [Attributes: First Edition]

        WORKS OF ALFRED LORD TENNYSON, Poet Laureate

      London Macmillan 1905 - With an engraved portrait frontispiece of Tennyson after J. Mayall. 8vo, beautifully bound in full crimson morocco, the spine with raised bands gilt ruled, separating compartments elaborately decorated with fully tooled panels gilt, lettered in gilt in one compartment, the covers with very fine gilt tooling incorporating dense and wide floral borders surrounded by multiple gilt fillet lines, the turnovers gilt rolled, marbled end-leaves, all edges gilt, a very handsome binding indeed. viii, 900 + (2) Index and colophon pp. A very fine copy, beautifully preserved and especially handsome. BEAUTIFULLY BOUND AND A VERY FINE COLLECTION OF THE POET'S WORK. ONE OF THE GREAT POETS OF HIS TIME. Tennyson was made Poet Laureate in succession to Wordsworth in 1850. He was held in the highest regard by Victoria and Albert. All of his great works are included here, including the "Idylls" and the "Charge of the Light Brigade". Tennyson was the first to be raised to a British peerage for his writing. He is still today one of the most popular British poets. In writing Tennyson used a wide range of subject matter, ranging from medieval legends to classical myths and from domestic situations to observations of nature, as source material for his poetry. The 'Idylls' for instance and the related poems were based on the Arthurian legends, and retell the story of King Arthur, his knights, his love for Guinevere and her tragic betrayal of him in blank verse. The dramatic narratives are not an epic either in structure or tone, but derive elegiac sadness in the style of the idylls of Theocritus. 'Idylls of the King' is often read as an allegory of the societal conflicts in Britain during the mid-Victorian era. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A pair of Typed Letters Signed ("Helen Keller") in pencil, one to an ill young admirer and another to the girl's mother

      Wrentham, Mass, 1905. 4 pp. 4to. Old folds. 4 pp. 4to. "I hear that you love books, which is another bond between us..." A pair of letters from Keller, the first to a young and ill admirer, the second to the girl's mother, following receipt of her response. In the first, dated March 8, 1905, Keller writes from the Wrentham, Massachusetts house she shared with her companion and teacher, Anne Sullivan: "Dear Miss Woods [sic], You are not expecting a letter from me, but I hope it will not be altogether unwelcome. I have heard of you in a round-about way through a friend of Mrs. Eells who is also a friend of mine. Her kind words have brought you very near to me, and I want to write and tell you I love you, and that I am happy to know you love me. That is a dear bond between us ... I hope you will soon be strong enough to write to me. I should love to have a letter from you. I wonder if you are counting as eagerly as I am the days before the snows melt away ... I am living in the country, and my heart beats fast with pleasure when I detect a whiff of the grace of spring in the air. I hear that you love books, which is another bond between us. What better companions can one have than cheerful thoughts and good books? How wonderfully they lift one above one's deprivations and turn even limitations into blessings." In the second letter, addressed to "Mrs. Wood," Keller apologizes for having mispelled the family name in the first letter, and explains that, through a mix-up, she has sent a copy of her book inscribed to her daughter to the wrong address.

George Frederick Kunz (1856 - 1932) was an American mineralogist and mineral collector. His expertise gained himand job at Tiffany & Co, and soon became vice-president of the company. He headlined the American mining and minerology exhibits at international expositions and "World's Fairs" between 1889 and 1904. He gained much notoriety for identifying a new gem variety of the mineral spodumene which was named "Kunzite" in his honor. *This work predates Kunz's accaimed works "The Book of the Pearl" and "Curious Lore of Precious Stones".The California State Mining Bureau was established by the legislature in 1880 in response to the need for information on the occurrence, mining, and processing of gold in the state. Its focus was on California's mining industry and the Governor appointed the State Mineralogist to head the Buruea. It was the precursor governmental office to the current California Geological Survey. The Bulletins of The California State Mining Bureau were published multiple times a year from 1888-1926, with a total of 97 bulletins issued.

        Puteshestvie iz Peterburga v Moskvy.

      - Saint Petersburg, no printer or publisher, 1905. 8vo. Contemporary Russian morocco-backed pebble-grained cloth, spine ruled and lettered in gilt, collector's initials M. A. at foot of spine; pp. lxxxx, [6, facsimile on different paper], 295, [4], photogravure portrait with captioned tissue guard; light rubbing to binding, occasionally a little finger-spotted, title with vertical folds; provenance: stamp Mikhael Georgievich Altvater (member of a German-Russian Baltic family) on p. 3, Petrograd library stamp on title and a few pages. First 'legal' edition to be published in Russia, and the first critical edition of what has been described as the Russian Uncle Tom's Cabin, the first open protest against serfdom, a narrative inspired by Rousseau and itself the inspiration for the Decabrists. Alexander Radishchev (1749-1802) is considered the founder of Russian revolutionary literature. He 'came from a moderately wealthy noble family with landholdings in Saratov Province. He was educated in the Corps of Pages in St. Petersburg and went on to study law and philosophy at the University of Leipzig in Germany. On his return to Russia in 1771, Radishchev pursued a intermittent career in state service rising eventually to the post of Chief of the St. Petersburg Customs House. In 1790, Radishchev published Journey from St. Petersburg to Moscow, a passionate tirade against the evils of serfdom and the corruption of Russian life. Radishchev's journey marks the first open condemnation of serfdom in Russian public life, and his overwrought emotional portrayals, drawing heavily on the style and motifs of pre-romantic sentimentalism, quickly drew the attention of Russian readers and the wrath of Catherine the Great. Alarmed by the radicalism of the French Revolution, Catherine saw in Radishchev's audacity a threat to the state and pronounced him "a rebel worse than Pugachev." Radishchev was arrested, tried and condemned to death, a sentence which Catherine commuted to 10 years exile in Siberia' (University of Oregon, online). The book had come out originally in 1790, after having passed censorship, but fell foul immediately, and only 17 copies of the printrun of 650 survive. In 1858 Alexander Herzen, the doyen of Russian publishing in exile had another edition printed in London. The present edition, with a long biographical and critical essay by P. E. Shchegolev, opens with a fine portrait of the author, followed by a title-page, partly based on a facsimile of the original edition. The 6 facsimile pages are of the first three leaves of this 1790 edition. The volume is concluded by a bibliography, and annotations. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Olaf Gulbransson: Vom Münchner Hoftheater (Originalzeichnung)

      1905 - Bleistift und Tusche auf Papier 44 x 28,5 cm Mittig unten betitelt Veröffentlicht:  Simplicissimus. Jahrgang 10 (1905), Heft 14, Seite 166 Ausschnitt aus Text: „Ernst von Possart geht. (Abb. I). Das Hoftheater, welches so oft seine Triumphe sah, das Residenztheater, welches meistens geschlossen war, sie verlieren ihn. Und nur ein Hoffnungsstrahl dringt in diese düstere Nacht des Abschiedes. Vielleicht – vielleicht übernimmt er doch noch einmal das Prinzregententheater, wenn es auf dem Zwangswege versteigert wird. Aber das wird vor einem Jahre nicht geschehen. Und darum müssen wir dem gefeierten Sprachkünstler mit bewegtem Herzen ein Lebewohl zurufen. Lebe wohl! Heute scheidest du aus dem Hoftheater, auf Wiedersehen morgen im Kaimsaale! Lebe wohl! Adieu, mein Edler! Noch eines! Lebe wohl, du Guter! Auf Wiedersehen auch im Mathildensaale! Lebe wohl! Und wenn wir uns im Odeonssaale wieder treffen, doch, lass uns scheiden! Lebe wohl!“ „Wer wird sein Nachfolger? Die kommenden Einflüsse in Bayern lassen zunächst eines mit Bestimmtheit erkennen: Der Nachfolger wird katholisch sein. Alles andere gibt sich von selbst. Der fortwährende Kandidat für vakante Hoftheaterstellen, Herr von Berger in Hamburg, wurde schon als Nachfolger genannt. Es ist möglich, dass er katholisch ist, und wenn nicht, wird er es. Er hat für seine Aussichten in Wien den Friedrich Schiller in Wien katholisch gemacht – wird er doch für seine Aussichten in München den Berger katholisch machen. Jedoch die kommenden Einflüsse werden dahin streben, dass ein Sprosse der hochgebildeten niederbayerischen Adelstreife die Leitung des Hoftheaters übernehmen wird. Ein Graf aus dem Schmalzlerlande (Abb. III) ist dazu ausersehen, wenn schon Eingeweihte behaupten, dass auch Freiherr von Knieschnackler (Abb. II) begründete Hoffnungen hat. Dieser lebt in München, ist ein begnadeter Anhänger der Dynastie Wittelsbach und bietet Garantien dafür, dass die zersetzenden Tendenzen modernster Literattur keinen Eingang in den Münchner Kunsttempel finden. Früher wurden ihm Beziehungen zum Ballette nachgesagt, aber die liegen vierzig Jahre zurück, und die leichtgeschürzten Musenfinder von damals sind allmählich vom Ernste des Lebens überzeugt worden. Neue wurden nicht engagiert. Freiherr von Knieschnackler besitzt Fähigkeiten welche Ihn gewiss zum Intendanten berufen erscheinen lassen." Provenienz: Nachlass Olaf Gulbransson
