        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.

Giacomo Puccini has been called "the greatest composer of Italian opera after Verdi" (Ravenni and Girardi).

        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

        The Far Eastern Tropics, Studies In The Administration Of Tropical Dependencies. Hong Kong, British North Borneo, Sarawak, Burma, The Federated Malay States, The Straits Settlements, French Indo-China, Java, The Philippine Islands.

      - Boston and New York, Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1905. 8vo. Original green ribbed cloth, lettered in gilt; pp. vii, [3], 339; a part from very light toning, a near-fine copy. First edition, signed presentation copy, inscribed by the author to John C. Phillips. Walter Alleyne Ireland had travelled all these regions extensively as Colonial Commissioner of the University of Chicago, with the task of gathering material for a report on the Colonial administrations in Southeast Asia. In the chapter on Sarawak Ireland is naturally indebted to the ruler, the Raja Sir Charles Brooke. The chapter on the Philippines contains tables about the population, based on the latest census, and the economic situation is assessed. Rather interesting to get the US American view of the largely (apart from the Philippines) British controlled region around the South China Sea. Provenance: John Charles Phillips (1876-1938) finished his medical and scientific studies at Harvard in 1904, before becoming one of the earlier conservationists, and a scientific and philanthropic traveller. From 1906 to 1914 he visited Japan, Korea, Mexico, the Blue Nile region, the Canadian Rockies and Pacific Northwest, Baja California, Sudan, Arabia and Palestine, and donated much of his collections to American institutions. That is probably why the volume bears the stamp of the Harvard Gifts and Exchange Section inside front cover. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE GREAT PLATEAU: being an account of exploration in central Tibet, 1903, and of the Gartok Expedition, 1904-1905

Spine very lightly darkened; ink private owner name and armorial bookplate at front; page edges yellowed, else a fine, bright & tight copy. >>> Brigadier-General Cecil Godfrey Rawling, CMG, CIE, DSO, FRGS...was a British soldier, explorer and author whose expeditions to Tibet and Dutch New Guinea brought acclaim from the Royal Geographic Society and awards from the Dutch and Indian governments. He published two books detailing his experiences and served in the British Army on the North-West Frontier of India and in France during the First World War. It was during this latter service that he was killed in action aged 47 during the Battle of Passchendaele....In 1903 he reentered Tibet to begin a professional survey although without official sanction, and in the following year Captain Rawling was attached to the British expedition to Tibet, charged with exploring and surveying the mountainous terrain. During the diplomatic expedition and the campaign which followed it, Rawling surveyed over 40,000 square miles (100,000 km2) of Tibet in addition to his military duties. His team even explored the foothills of Everest and included parts of the mountain in his survey, establishing it as the highest mountain in the Himalayas. It is said that had his seniors on the expedition not forbidden it, he would have become the first white man to attempt to climb the mountain from the north face. He was also the first person to successfully identify the source of the river Brahmaputra after a lengthy and hazardous journey across the war zone. Upon his return to England, Rawling received numerous accolades, including a CIE from the Indian government and in 1909 was awarded the Murchison Bequest of the Royal Geographic Society in London, of which he was a fellow." - Wikipedia.

        THE GOLDEN POOL A Story of a Forgotten Mine

      1905 - Small 8vo, pp. vii, 341. Bound in original brown cloth, ruled and lettered in white to front board and lettered in white to spine. No dust jacket. Richard Austin Freeman (1862-1943) was trained as a pharmacist and doctor. When he was 25, he joined a British expedition to what was then the Gold Coast of Africa, and served as a physician, naturalist, and navigator. After contracting blackwater fever, he returned to England in 1891 and turned to writing to support himself and his family. His first efforts were co-authored under the pseudonym Clifford Ashdown with author John James Pitcairn. Freeman is better known as a prolific writer of first-rate mysteries, and creator of the medical investigator Dr. John Evelyn Thorndyke, a series character whose work epitomized the use of scientific methods to solve crimes. However, he also wrote a number of very good novels. This title is his first novel (of which he was the sole author) and precedes the first "Thorndyke" mystery novel by two years. It concerns an adventurous voyage to North Africa in search of the Aboasi gold mine, the theft of a sacred religious relic by a daring Englishman, and his subsequent exploits. Allegedly, this book was once required reading of all who served in the African branch of the British Colonial Services. Our copy is a first edition jointly published by Copp, Clark (Toronto) and Cassell (London), with the Copp, Clark name at the base of the spine. The white to the rules and lettering on the front board has been partially ablated, more so to the spine. There is light edge wear, scuffing and soiling to the cloth. The binding is slightly stressed. Contents clean and tight - no former owner's markings. In good, to good plus, condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1905 : 1905 Original Hardback Wisden, Very Good Condition

      1905. Hi, This lot is an 1905 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the tenth year of the hardback and a year I have found hard to find recently, especially in this condition. This is one of the nicest prewar hardbacks I have seen. The boards are very clean with excellent, extremely bright gilt, a couple of tiny marks to the rear. The spine gilt is very bright and original. The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns are amazing, so bright yellow it is hard to express. The photoplate is very good and internaly a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. Hard to fault, if I had to pick something it is that when the book is on the desk gilt up there is a slight inward movement to the top right hand side of the book. A rare Wisden in superb condition (++) and a very nice price.

        handsignierte Notiz ORIGINAL SIGNIERT original handwritten and signed note

       Handsignierte Notiz 5 x 20 cm.original handwritten and signed notedekorativ mit Foto auf schwarzen Fotokarton montiert (reversibel)tadelloser ZustandRudolf-Christoph Freiherr von Gersdorff (* 27. März 1905 in Lüben; ? 27. Januar 1980 in München) war ein deutscher Offizier, zuletzt Generalmajor im Zweiten Weltkrieg sowie Mitglied des aktiven Widerstandes von Offizieren der Wehrmacht gegen Adolf Hitler. Zweiter Weltkrieg[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten] Bei Beginn des Polenfeldzugs war Freiherr von Gersdorff Dritter Generalstabsoffizier (Ic) der 14. Armee. Mit dieser, mittlerweile umbenannt in 12. Armee, wurde er nach Abschluss des Feldzuges an die Westgrenze verlegt. Nach der Zwischenstation beim XII. Armeekorps wurde Freiherr von Gersdorff zum Oberkommando des Heeres (OKH) abkommandiert. Während des Westfeldzugs leitete er als Ia die Führungsabteilung der 86. Infanterie-Division, die als Teil der 12. Armee an dem Vorstoß durch die Ardennen beteiligt war.Für das Unternehmen Barbarossa wurde er im Mai 1941 zur Heeresgruppe B, ab 22. Juni 1941 umbenannt in Heeresgruppe Mitte, versetzt. Dort war er als Verbindungsoffizier der Abwehr Ic und leitete die militärische Aufklärung. Ziel dieser Versetzung war vor allem, ihm den Zugang zum Verschwörerkreis um Henning von Tresckow zu verschaffen.Bis April 1943 entdeckten Freiherr von Gersdorff unterstehende Soldaten der Wehrmacht die Massengräber von über 4000 polnischen Offizieren, Fähnrichen und Beamten, die Einheiten des sowjetischen NKWD in einem Wald unweit des russischen Dorfes Katyn 1940 ermordet hatten (siehe Massaker von Katyn). Von Gersdorff führte dabei die Dienstaufsicht über die Exhumierungen. Er war dabei auch verantwortlich für den Ablauf der Besichtigungsreisen ausländischer Beobachter, die auf Anweisung des Propagandaministers Joseph Goebbels nach Katyn gebracht wurden. Dazu gehörten eine internationale Ärztekommission, Journalisten und Schriftsteller sowie polnische, amerikanische und britische kriegsgefangene Offiziere.[1]Am 1. Februar 1944 trat Freiherr von Gersdorff seinen Dienst als Generalstabschef des LXXXII. Armeekorps an, dessen drei Infanteriedivisionen eine an der französischen Nordküste erwartete alliierte Landung abwehren sollten. Am 28. Juli 1944 wurde er Generalstabschef der 7. Armee, die kurz darauf im Kessel von Falaise eingeschlossen wurde. Für die Planung des erfolgreichen Ausbruchs der Armee erhielt er am 26. August 1944 das Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes.[2] Er blieb ? im März 1945 noch zum Generalmajor befördert ? bis zur deutschen Kapitulation bei der 7. Armee.Mitglied des militärischen Widerstands gegen den Nationalsozialismus[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten] Kurz nach dem gescheiterten Versuch des Obersten im Generalstab Henning von Tresckow und dessen Vetters Fabian von Schlabrendorff, Hitler am 13. März 1943 durch eine in Smolensk in sein Flugzeug geschmuggelte Bombe zu töten,[3] erklärte sich Freiherr von Gersdorff bereit, ein Selbstmordattentat auf Hitler zu verüben.[4]Am 21. März 1943 eröffnete Hitler zum Heldengedenktag eine Ausstellung sowjetischer Beutewaffen im Berliner Zeughaus. Freiherr von Gersdorff war als Experte abkommandiert, die Ausstellung zu erläutern. Er wollte beim Rundgang Hitler und die anwesende Führungsspitze, darunter Hermann Göring, Heinrich Himmler, Wilhelm Keitel und Karl Dönitz, mit zwei britischen Splitterminen, die er in den Manteltaschen trug, in die Luft sprengen und dabei sein Leben opfern. Nachdem Freiherr von Gersdorff den Säurezünder bereits aktiviert hatte, hastete Hitler durch die Ausstellung, ohne vor Ausstellungsstücken innezuhalten, und verließ das Gebäude schon nach zwei Minuten, während der Zünder eine Mindestzeit von 10 Minuten hatte. Freiherr von Gersdorff konnte den Zünder auf einer Toilette des Zeughauses gerade noch rechtzeitig entschärfen. Nach der gescheiterten Aktion wurde er unmittelbar an die Ostfront zurückbeordert.[5]1944 verwahrte Freiherr von Gersdorff Sprengstoff und Zünder für das Attentat vom 20. Juli 1944, die sein Mitverschwörer Wessel Freytag von Loringhoven zuvor unbemerkt aus Beständen der Abwehr besorgt hatte. Die Verschwiegenheit seiner inhaftierten Kollegen ? oft unter Folter ? rettete ihn vor Verhaftung und Hinrichtung. So überlebte er als einer von wenigen Angehörigen der Wehrmacht im aktiven Widerstand gegen die nationalsozialistische Diktatur die NS-Herrschaft.[6]Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten] In amerikanischer Kriegsgefangenenschaft war von Gersdorff in einer privilegierten Lage: Er gehörte einer Gruppe hoher Offiziere der Wehrmacht an, die amerikanischen Militärhistorikern beim Verfassen einer Geschichte des Zweiten Weltkrieges zur Hand gehen sollte. Diese Gruppe war erst in Saint-Germain-en-Laye bei Paris, dann im hessischen Oberursel interniert.[7]Fabian von Schlabrendorff, der in den Kulissen des ersten Nürnberger Prozesses im Herbst 1945 Berater der amerikanischen Delegation war, empfahl Gersdorff als Zeugen für den von sowjetischer Seite vorgebrachten Anklagepunkt Katyn. Gersdorff verfasste daraufhin einen Bericht über seine Erkenntnisse von 1943. Doch kam weder dieser Bericht in Nürnberg zur Sprache, noch wurde von Gersdorff als Zeuge geladen. Die Existenz des Berichtes wurde verschwiegen, er wurde erst 2012 in englischer Übersetzung im amerikanischen Nationalarchiv entdeckt.[8] Die Untersuchungskommission des US-Kongresses zum Massaker von Katyn (Madden-Kommission), die 1952 zur Befragung deutscher Zeugen nach Frankfurt kam, vernahm ihn hingegen.[9]Nach dem Beschluss des Bundestages über die Wiederbewaffnung scheiterten alle Versuche Freiherr von Gersdorffs, in die Bundeswehr aufgenommen zu werden. In seinen Memoiren machte er dafür den Staatssekretär Hans Globke und jene Kreise ehemaliger Offiziere der Wehrmacht verantwortlich, die keinen ?Verräter? in der Bundeswehr dulden wollten.[10]Freiherr von Gersdorff widmete sich, seit 1967 durch einen Reitunfall querschnittsgelähmt, der Wohltätigkeit im Johanniterorden, dessen Ehrenkommendator er war. Er war Gründungspräsident der Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe (Vorstandsvorsitz 1952?1963).[11] 1979 wurde ihm wegen seiner außerordentlichen Verdienste das Große Bundesverdienstkreuz verliehen.[11](Quelle: Wikipedia) Geschichte, Zweiter Weltkrieg, Attentat
