        TALES OF THE FISH PATROL

      1905. With Illustrations by George Varian. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1905. 3 pp undated ads. Original dark blue cloth pictorially decorated in yellow and green. First Edition of these seven tales, originally written as a serial for boys in "Youth's Companion." As a teenager, London had been an oyster thief in San Francisco Bay until he lost his boat to rivals; he wrote about these days in his thinly-veiled romance THE CRUISE OF THE DAZZLER. Ever the opportunist, once his pirating days were over London then turned his knowledge of the pirates to good use by joining the anti-thief Fish Patrol. He later acknowledged that much in these tales was more myth than truth, and "later admitted privately that the sole weapon he had carried with him was a table fork, and he had had to use it only once to keep off an amorous Greek sailor" [Sinclair].~The pictorial binding design, by Adam Empie (so initialed), shows London's sloop "The Reindeer" being pulled in by a whirlpool. This is a fine, bright copy. Sisson & Martens p. 26; Blanck 11887.

A little rubbed, corners slightly bumped, head of spine chipped, tail with minor splitting, some spotting on the boards, endpapers lightly browned, text toned and with occasional foxing, as usual, frontispiece coming loose, contemporary ownership inscription to verso of the frontispiece and to title page, bookplate to front pastedown, remains a very good copy. Frontispiece and 19 other plates, errata slip tipped in before the dedication leaf. First edition. An uncommon and attractive account of the hajj. "The early 20th century saw a growth of British travel texts and religious commentaries concerned with the religion of Arabia. It was in this vein that in 1902 the Morning Post sent its 'Special Correspondent' Hadji Khan, a Persian Sufi, on the hajj to Mecca. His experiences were written up under the guidance of Wilfrid Sparroy. The result was a travelogue that detailed the various components of the hajj and Meccan life for a British readership The narrative is precise and exact as though for an audience who may wish to use the information to find their way amongst the markets of Mecca the next time they visit. Of course few, if any, of the readership will ever visit Mecca An inspection of Arabia which defines that other world by carefully recording the minutiae of Mecca and the hajj, the text providing the British reader with a spyglass scrutiny of Arab religious life and customs a curious concoction of personal experiences of a Muslim on the hajj distilled by an English co-author" (Canton, From Cairo to Baghdad: British Travellers in Arabia, p. 28).

        Japanese Fairy Tales (in 5 Books)

      Philadelphia (Tokyo): Macrae-Smith Company (T. Hasegawa). Original wraps. Near Fine. Part of the wonderful "Japanese Fairy Tale" series, originally published (in a smaller format) by T. Hasegawa of Tokyo in very late 19th/early 20th century and here presented for an American audience (in its larger format) by the Macrae-Smith Company of Philadelphia. These 5 self-contained fairy tales have in common the sure translations of the great Lafcadio Hearn. They're also neatly contained in Macrae-Smith's printed blue cloth chemise, with ivory clasps. All 5 of the fairy tales are vibrant and near-pristine in their ribbon-tied crepe paper, with rich illustrations from colored woodblocks. All of the volumes appear to be original printings in this American format and they all undoubtedly date from the very early 20th century (1905-1915). The 5 volumes are: "The Boy Who Drew Cats"; "The Old Woman Who Lost Her Dumpling"; "The Goblin Spider"; "The Fountain of Youth"; and "Chin Chin Kobakama"

        Thirty-Five Years in the East. Adventures, Discoveries, Experiments, and Historical Sketches, relating to the Punjab and Cashmere; in Connection with Medicine, Botany, Pharmacy, &c.

      Calcutta: The "Bangabasi" Office, 1905 - Octavo (211 × 125 mm). Modern "native" black half sheep, green cloth boards, title gilt direct to spine, gilt rolls to spine and corner edges, original front wrapper (stained, old repairs) bound in. Externally bright, contents browned and with a series of worm-tracks through the block, but not in any way fragile, about very good. Portrait frontispiece and 15 other plates, 6 of them folding, and a folding map. First Calcutta reprint; First published in German in Vienna under the title Früchte aus dem Morgenlande oder Reise-Erlebnisse, nebst naturhistorisch-medizinischen Erfahrungen in 1851; translated into English the following year. Honigberger (1795–1869), a doctor trained in both conventional and his preferred homeopathic medicine, was born in Krostadt in Romania, left Transylvania in 1815 and travelled though the Middle East, Egypt, Arabia, Persia, and on to India. He arrived in Lahore in 1829 and, having treated Ranjit Singh's favourite horse for an ulcerated leg, gained the confidence of the Maharaja, becoming court physician, as well as being put in charge of the gunstock manufactory and gunpowder mills. A facsimile plate of the document of his appointment to these varied positions is included. Honigberger gives "his observations about Ranjit Singh, Maharaja Kharak Signh, Naunihal Singh, Sher Singh, Dhian Singh, Chand Kaur, Dalip Singh, Hira Singh, political changes, bloodshed, role of Akalis, faaticism of Jallah, Baba Var Singh, battle of Sobraon, rile of Teja Singh, Lehna Singh and Sikh battles. He also told many interesting day-to-day happenings of the Sikh State" (Chopra). Honigberger also provides much on medical practices in West, South and Central Asia. The plates include a hakim or Mohammedan doctor, an attar or druggist, a still, a "B'hangee, or Hemp-Plant Drinker", and a "Faqueer Postee, or Poppy-Head Drinker", together with portraits of the members of the durbar or ruler's household, and an interesting map of the railway route from Bokhara to Orenburg. This account by an unconventional but painstaking observer is a highly appealing curiosity amongst the more established account of the Punjabi court at the time.

      C. F. Ortlepp, Friedrichroda, Germany 1905 - Scarce, extraordinary trade catalogue for garden ornaments, many whimsical, with eye-catching bright color chromos highly evocative of a children's book. By scarce, we mean not only the non-existence of a physical copy to be found on OCLC First Search (there is apparently an Internet copy at Cambridge), but also, we are not aware of a trade catalogue quite like this one, other than, perhaps some toy catalogues. Oblong, 24.5 by 33.5 cm. Five leaves, each a bold color plate on the recto, and wrap covers. The ornaments are of realistic looking animals,anthropomorphic animals, a maiden, gnomes doing various gnome things, a pith helmeted army officer, comical men, playful frogs, etc. Although we have certainly seen animals and gnomes as lawn ornaments, we are not sure they have ever lived up to the likenesses promised here. Some of the figures are holding signs with warnings or playful messages. Condition: discoloration around the staples on the wraps. Fading to the wraps' orange coloration.

        Signed Photograph, with autograph note

      - Early signed halftone postcard photograph of the Australian-born pianist, conductor, and composer best known for his folk settings and colorfully experimental works. Signed and inscribed on the image "I had a tremendous time over in Copenhagen / yours very cordially / Percy Grainer / 18.3.06" with his address , addressed and postmarked on the verso with the note "Please forgive that I so long have neglected to thank you for so very kindly sending on my razor." Small creased to lower left corner, otherwise in fine condition. 3.5 x 5.5 inches. In 1905, inspired by a lecture given by the pioneer folksong historian Lucy Broadwood, Grainger began to collect original folksongs and over the next five years he gathered and transcribed more than 300 songs from all over the country, including much material that had never been written down before. From 1906 - the year of the present signed photograph - Grainger used a phonograph, one of the first collectors to do so, and by this means he assembled more than 200 Edison cylinder recordings of native folk singers.

        Large Original Photograph of a German Reserve Army Regiment, by a Chinese Photographer in Tientsin.

      Tientsin [Tianjin], 1905. Rare original photograph of a German Reserve Army regiment which remained in China after serving in the Boxer Rebellion. Large gelatin silver print photograph measuring approximately 20 x 28 cm, on a printed mount from the Tientsin studio of Ying Chang. Small chips to edges of mount, unobtrusive to photograph, otherwise in Very Good Condition. A contingent of German Army troops, with three commanders at front center, posed for this photograph only five years after the Battle of Tientsin, which was part of the Boxer Rebellion. Representing German presence in China, the officers wear uniforms of the Ostasiatischen ExpeditionKorps (East Asian Expeditionary Corps), which had participated in the Boxer Rebellion, and which by the time of this photograph been reduced to 3,600 men. The newly organized force was also now called Ostasiatische Besatzungsbrigade (East Asian Occupation Brigade). A large horizontal banner rising among them featuring the Imperial Coat of Arms of the German Empire, being the Prussian Eagle with armour, a mounted cavalry soldier with the German flag, and a Chinese dragon. The East Asian Occupation Brigade In 1901 with the Boxer Rebellion defeated, the German East Asian Expeditionary Corps was disbanded and mostly recalled to Germany. A much smaller force of about 3,600 remained to occupy positions in various Chinese cities (including Peking, Tientsin, Shanghai, Shan Hai Kwan, Lanfang, Tangku and Yangtsun). This newly organised force was renamed the East Asian Occupation Brigade ("Ostasiatische Besatzungsbrigade") as of the 17th May 1901 and consisted of the following: 3 Infantry Regiments (Ostasiatische Infanterie Regiment) 1 Squadron of Mounted Infantry (Ostasiatische Eskadron Jäger zu Pferd) 3 Batteries of Field Artillery (Ostasiatische Feld Artillerie Abteilung) 1 Pioneer Company (Ostasiatische Pionier-Kompanie) with a telegraph detachment 1 Train Company (Ostasiatische Train-Kompanie) with a horse hospital 1 Medical Half Company (Ostasiatische Sanitäts-Halbkompanie) 2 Field Hospitals ( Ostasiatische Feldlazarette) 1 Depot Unit (Ostasiatisches Etappen Kommandantur) As the threat of rebellion further diminished in China, so the Occupation Brigade was downsized, beginning in 1902. On 6 March 1906 the Occupation Brigade was renamed the East Asian Detachment (Ostasiatische Detachement) and again partially disbanded, leaving 1,100 troops organised as 4 Infantry Companies and one Field Artillery Battery. These troops were based at Peking and Tientsin. On 5 April 1909 the Germany Army Detachment was withdrawn entirely and replaced by the naval East Asian Marine Detachment ("Ostasiatische Marine-Detachement")..

        MORDEKHAI ‘IMANUEL NOAH [AND] MASAOT BÂ’ANGLIAH, TSFARAT, SEFARD, UÂ’VÂ’ARTZOT BARBARIA

      Warsaw: Achiasaf Society. 1905. Hardback. 1st Edition [and] 1st Hebrew edition. Modern boards, 8vo, [66], 25 pages. 22 cm. In Hebrew. Two books published together. First Title is Mordekhai ‘Imanuel Noah by Rabbi Max Raisin. Title translates to Mordecai Manuel Noah. Second title is Masaot by Mordecai Manuel Noah, the First Hebrew translation of NoahÂ’s famous “Travels in England, France, Spain and the Barbary States, in the years 1813-14 and 15.” Publishing the work in Hebrew, in Eastern Europe, was a way to reach the wider Jewish world to tell the amazing story of Noah, probably the most powerful Jew in the Western Hemisphere of the early 19th Century. Both are published by the Achiasaf Society, a Hebrew language publisher founded by noted Zionist thinker Asher Zvi Hirsch Ginzberg, better known as Ahad HaÂ’Am. It contains a brief biography of American-Jewish statesman and proto-Zionist thinker, Mordecai Manuel Noah, and NoahÂ’s own accounts of his travels in England, France, Spain, and the Barbary Coast. (Today known as the Greater Maghreb. ) Noah, a journalist, playwright, politician, and lawyer, was one of the most prominent Jews of Early America, and served as Consul to Kingdom of Tunis (modern Tunisia) under President James Madison. When then-Secretary of State James Monroe removed Noah from NoahÂ’s post, citing his religion as an “obstacle”, it sparked an outcry among American Jews and non-Jews alike, with Noah receiving letters of support from John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. Discouraged from pursuing government positions, Noah continued his career as a newspaperman in New York, founding and editing numerous publications there. Unfortunately, Noah is probably best remembered for his ambitious but failed attempt to establish “Ararat, A Jewish City of Refuge” on Grand Island in Upstate New York. NoahÂ’s ardent belief that Jews would flock to his settlement to escape international persecution proved false, and “Ararat” never came to be. Masaot was written in 1814, before NoahÂ’s removal from his position of Consul, and ten years before the failure of Ararat. His biography is written by Rabbi Max Raisin, prominent early 20th-century historian of Jewish America. SUBJECT(S) Jewish politicians -- United States -- Biography -- Voyages and Travels. OCLC lists only 4 copies worldwide (NYPL, YU, HUC, and UPENN) . Ex-Library with usual markings. Paper beginning to yellow. Otherwise Very Good Condition. Rare. (AMR-50-1) .
