Created to commemorate a Christmas Day Mother Goose party, this souvenir album features wonderfully hand-tinted photographs of the participants, which ranged from Little Jack Horner and Miss Muffet (the host and hostess) to Little Bo Peep, Simple Simon, Humpty Dumpty, the Queen of Hearts, Mother Hubbard and her dog (who roams from photograph to photograph looking for a bone, poor thing) -- among other fairy tale characters, all enacted by adults. (Yes, adults, who really know how to party.) Each delicately colored image is enclosed within a hand-drawn frame.

        The Barnum & Bailey Annual Route Book and Illustrated Tours: 1906

      Charles Andress, Chicago 1906 - A good+ copy of the leather-covered version of this annual (as noted on page 85, its contemporary price was $2.00, mailed to any address.). The cover shows abundant wear and (due to drying) cracking/chipping of the leather cover, especially of the rear cover panel, where the leather has become detached. From the Preface: "Two years' unremitting search and investigation have enabled the author to present to the reader much interesting data concerning old-time circus people of both sexes, together with a collection of photographs eclipsing entirely anything that has ever been previously compiled in this line. A compilation of anecdotes, pictures and stories, extending back to the time of the primitive wagon-shows of the first half of the nineteenth century, form instructive and most interesting reading and information." All-in-all a rare and fascinating piece of circus-related ephemera. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        THE WOODLANDERS (Presentation Copy Inscribed By the Author to His Second Wife, Florence Hardy)

      London: Osgood, McIlvaine Hardy, Thomas. THE WOODLANDERS. London: Osgood, McIlvaine, 1906. Later Edition. This is the PRESENTATION COPY given by the author to his future second wife, Florence Emily Dugdale, during the time they first began their secret courtship, four years before the death of the first Mrs. Hardy. At the time of its presentation, it was the most current version of the novel and it is inscribed: "To/ Miss F. E. Dugdale/With the Author's Kind Regards/Christmas 1908." The copy has been well-read by the second Mrs. Hardy as one might expect and shows some wear but little tear, still in very nice original condition without major flaw. Despite Hardy's formality of inscription, he was already quite drawn to Miss Dugdale by this time and a more intimate presentation copy of this title would be hard to find. Florence Hardy's personal copy of THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE (also a later edition with her bookplate, but NOT inscribed by Thomas Hardy) made $12,095.00 at Sotheby's London in 2001. Spectacular association. Housed in a new quarter-morocco slipcase.. Inscribed By Author. Decorative Cloth. Very Good.

        Walter Reed and Yellow Fever

      New York: McClure, Phillips & Co. 1906 - 8vo., green cloth lettered in gilt; top edge gilt. First edition, first printing. A presentation copy, inscribed: "To Dr. William H. Welch, from Howard A. Kelly, with affectionate regard, 16 June 06," on the front endpaper; Welch is mentioned in the preface and pages 63-67, 164, 249. ---- The recipient, William Henry Welch, a physician, pathologist, and educator, founded the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, the first school of public health in the country. He had an influential role in reforming medical education. One of the founding professors at the Johns Hopkins Hospital along with Welch, Kelly created new surgical approaches to women's diseases and invented numerous medical devices, including the cystoscope. He was one of the first to use radium to treat cancer, founding the Kelly Clinic in Baltimore, one of the country's leading centers for radiation therapy at that time. Both Welch and Kelly worked closely with Walter Reed, the U.S. Army physician who in 1901 led the team that postulated and confirmed the theory that yellow fever is transmitted by a particular mosquito species, rather than by direct contact. In "Walter Reed," Welch praised Reed for the "inestimable benefits upon his country and mankind." A highly significant presentation copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Traite de photographie stereoscopique. Theorie et pratique. BOUND WITH Traite pratique de photographie stereoscopique

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1906. Boards. Near Fine. 2 titles in one volume. VIII, 248, [V]-VII, [1] pages + 20 plates + [249]-251 pages. Second title [1]-207 pages. Half calf over marbled boards. Large 8vo. 6 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches. Light browning to pages. Boards. The first title, "Traite de photographie stereoscopique. Theorie et pratique," was originally issued with the 20 plates in a separate cloth-backed portfolio. Here the plates have been bound in. Both titles are scarce, with Fabre's work not present in the Epstean collection as of this writing. Both titles deal with the theory and practice of stereoscopy. This artform / photographic technique allows the photographer to take a photograph which can be viewed later in three dimensions. It is accomplished by taking the same image with 2 lenses slightly separated from one another, which when viewed through a stereoscope with similarly separated lenses allows the viewer to see depth in the image. A fascinating parlor trick since the 1850s and still something that wows the public who often hasn't seen it. Both titles are scarce, with fewer than a dozen examples in book form in library systems participating in Worldcat/OCLC.

        Puck of Pook's Hill - 1906 1st in dust wrapper - Ellen Terry's copy

      Macmillan, London 1906 - First printing, 1906. Red cloth gilt in dust jacket, with actress Ellen Terry's bookplate. Good+ in very good dust jacket, some discoloration to rear board and light soil and spottiness to endpapers, top outer corner of text a bit bumped, small engraved bookplate on flyleaf, Ellen Terry's bookplate on pastedown; dust jacket very good indeed with light soil to front panel and very light edge-loss to spine ends. Illustrated children's fantasy stories with Shakespeare's fairy character Puck from Midsummer Night's Dream a connecting motif. Terry's first role as an eight year old was as Puck, in 1856. Terry was known to recite Kipling's verse on occasion, and Kipling attended some of her performances, but there is no evidence that Terry and Kipling were particularly close. Nonetheless, given Terry's childhood role as Puck, an excellent association copy and very rare to find early Kipling in a dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        BALDWIN LOCOMOTIVE WORKS. Illustrated Catalogue of Locomotives. M. Baird & Co., Philadelphia.

      Philadelphia: Press of J. B. Lippincott & Co. (n. d.). 134 pp. T.p. printed in red & black. Text within rectangular red-rule border. The Baldwin Locomotive Works, an American builder of railroad locomotives, was located in Pennsylvania, originally Philadelphia, then moving in 1906 to nearby Eddystone. The company was the largest US producer of custom, made-to-order steam locomotives. Founded in the early 1830s by Matthais Baldwin, the firm stopped producing locomotives in 1956, ceasing business in 1972, having produced over 70,000 engines, the vast majority powered by steam. This one of the firm's first photograhically illustrated catalogues, a lavish production, issued in the ealy 1870s as Baldwin overtook Rogers as the premier locomotive manufacturer in the United States. Herein will be found photographs of their divers products, including [fill in with some names of locomotives]. While not a particularly rare catalogue, it's importance & desirablility lies in documenting the ascent to prominence of this significant US heavy equipment manufacturer, as well as being an early trade catalogue illustrated with actual photographs. Overall VG (slightly shaken/some shelfwear).

Unbound as published (more than half of them) or disbound (with some inner marginal blemishes); marginal stains to a few early issues; occasional signs of use and age; the first issue (on acidic paper) discoloured and brittle; overall in decent condition. The original first number was published in London, the second one in Adelaide almost a year later. Although the originals of these two significant issues are not present in this run, it must be said that ALL of these early issues of South Australia's first newspaper are utterly rare on the open market, and the opportunity to purchase virtually all of the first three years' worth (and more) will probably not arise again.

        Peter Pan of Kensington Gardens

      London: Hodder & Stoughton,, 1906. Large quarto. Original white vellum with gilt lettering and decoration, top edge gilt and others untrimmed, original yellow ribbon to front board. Housed in a custom brown slipcase. Front free endpaper with map of Kensington Gardens, 50 colour plates mounted onto brown art paper with captioned tissue guards. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedown. Rear board lacking a tie, gilt a little rubbed from spine; an exceptional copy. Signed limited edition, number 47 of 500 copies signed by the illustrator. The literary character of Peter Pan first appeared in the book-within-a-book London story-collection for adults, The Little White Bird (1902). By this time Barrie was also increasingly turning his focus from prose to concentrate on drama, and his two plays, Quality Street and The Admirable Crichton (produced in 1901 and 1902 respectively), though successful, were eclipsed by the enormous success of Peter Pan, which opened on 27 December 1904 and broke all previous theatrical records. In 1906, Barrie sanctioned this publication of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, in collaboration with Rackham as illustrator; the text was extracted from The Little White Bird with minor revisions, and it was published specifically as a children's book. The play remained unpublished until 1928.

        Blick auf St. Josef im Winter" originales Ölgemälde auf dünnem Malkarton ca. 50x70cm auf Leinwand aufgezogen; links unten signiert und datiert "(19)27" [Maße im aufwendig gearbeiteten und leicht bestoßenen Holzrahmen 65x85cm.]

      - Ludwig Bock begann seine künstlerische Ausbildung an der privaten Akademie bei Heinrich Knirr. Unter den Anweisungen von Bernhard Buttersack entwickelte er sich in Haimhausen bei München zum Landschaftsmaler. 1906 wurde er an die Münchener Akademie aufgenommen und wurde Meisterschüler bei Heinrich von Zügel. Seine erste Ausstellung fand 1908 im Rahmen der Sezession statt. Außerdem stellte er in den Jahren danach unter anderem in den über München hinaus bekannten Galerien Thannhauser, Brakl und Heinemann aus. 1908 und 1909 erhielt der die bronzene und silberne Medaille der Münchner Akademie. Eine Reise nach Paris im Jahre 1913, auf der er die französische Moderne, so etwa Werke von Matisse und Cézanne, studierte, beeinflußte ihn nachhaltig. In den Folgejahren löste er sich - wie so manch einer seiner bekannten Mitschüler - deutlich vom Stil seines Lehrers Zügel und entwickelte eine expressive, auf scharfe Konturen und leuchtende Farbigkeit basierende Malerei. 1917 wurde der Künstler Mitglied der Sezession. Seit 1918 folgten regelmäßige Ausstellungen im Münchner Glaspalast sowie in zahlreichen anderen deutschen Städten. Im Jahre 1920 wurde das erste Gemälde Bocks von den Bayerischen Staatsgemäldesammlungen angekauft, es sollten noch weitere folgen. Im Jahre 1927 erhielt er den Professorentitel. Von nun an schuf er fast ausschließlich Stilleben, die sich in seiner späteren Zeit an die Malweise von Carl Schuch anlehnten. 1929 erhielt er den Rom Preis der Villa Massimo (Deutsche Akademie Rom Villa Massimo). Nach Kriegsende war Bock an der Wiederbegründung der Münchner Sezession beteiligt und stellte dort regelmäßig mit aus. 1952 erhielt er den Kunstpreis der Stadt München.

        Patton, at the start of his third year at West Point, tells his mother of his demotion to 6th Corporal, but hoping that in the autumn, "when foot-ball begins I shall be more fortunate."

      [West Point, New York], August 27, 1906. 5.25" x 6.5". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""G S Patton Jr.,"" 3 pages, 5.25"" x 6.5"" (page two: 6.5"" x 10.5""), [West Point, New York], August 27, 1906, to his mother reporting on recent events including having to act as a cook for a march (due to the appointed cook's drunkenness) as well has his demotion to 6th Corporal. Expected folds, else fine condition. Patton's letter reads in full: ""I was on g.m. on the practice march and it was a bad job I was practically cook of course I had a soldier help me and an other to drive they were pretty good and worked hard but drank harder. I had to decide what the meals would be and how much 3 should cook. At first I was included to starve them but soon got on to it and managed very well. I bought a good many extra things with my own money and spent about $10, on the company. In the day time it was pretty good for riding through the green fields but when we got to camps had to work like the devil unpacking the wagon and pitching the kitchen tent. In the morning I had to get up at three thirty to see that the cook got breakfast. Once the cook was drunk and I had to get in myself. One day I decided to go with the troops but as we had to advance about a mile through a corn filed the corn gave me the worst attack of hay fever I ever had. I even lost my voice for an hour. But it soon got better. I got some pretty good pictures but next to the last day the wagon ran over my camera and smashed it all to hell. In fact I have had had a run of bad luck for men [had] broken into the trunk room and opened a lot of trunks and suit cases they took my new suit case with my two suits of clothes my watch and my little box of pins and things. Tonight the new marks were read out and I came out six (6) corp[oral]. I hope that when foot-ball begins I shall be more fortunate. Has papa fixed up his money affairs yet and in what way. I am very well. With lots of love your devoted son G S Patton Jr."" The letter dates from the start of Patton's third year at the United States Military Academy at West Point, though technically he was a second year student, having to repeat his first year after failing mathematics. Suffering from dyslexia, Patton struggled academically, but improved enough in his second year to earn him the rank of 2nd Corporal. In command he proved overzealous. Although his academics were mediocre, he excelled at drill and expected his subordinates to perform at the same level and was resented by his fellow cadets for that reason. It was largely due to his overzealousness on the parade ground that he found himself demoted to the rank of 6th Corporal at the end of August 1906. "

        Writings & Life Without Principle Manuscript Leaf Edition

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1906. Hardcover. Near Fine. Numbered 217/600, 20 volume set by Houghton Mifflin (signed by publisher) and issued with an inset leaf of original manuscript from Life without Principle. Unlike most manuscript sets that turn up, this has a blockbuster leaf: several of the most famous passages (over 350 words in ink and pencil) from Thoreau's famous essay Life Without Principle. Also, unlike most sets, this is not a leaf from his journal. This is an actual manuscript leaf from the essay, written in 1854, at the time Walden was being published. Thoreau anticipated getting lecture invitations based on Walden, and this was his most important statement on work, money, and purpose in life. Robert Richardson, in his wonderful biography of Thoreau, states that the essay is "a jeremiad against both the Protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism." Thoreau regarded it as one of his most important works and finished revisions of the essay very near his death. The essay was originally published in Atlantic Magazine in 1863. The passages in this leaf are completely iconic: "The ways by which you may get money almost without exception lead downward. To have done anything by which you earned money merely is to have been truly idle or worse. If the laborer gets no more than the wages which his employer pays him, he is cheated, he cheats himself. If you would get money as a writer or lecturer, you must be popular, which is to go down perpendicularly. Those services which the community will most readily pay for, it is the most disagreeable to render. You are paid for being something less than a man. The State does not commonly reward a genius any more wisely. Even the poet laureate would rather not have to celebrate the accidents of royalty. [Paragraph break] As for my own business, even that kind of surveying which I could do with most satisfaction my employers do not want. They would prefer that I should do my work coarsely and not too well, ay, not well enough. [Paragraph break] The aim of the laborer should be, not to get his living, to get "a good job," but to perform well a certain work; and, even in a pecuniary sense, it would be economy for a town to pay its laborers so well that they would not feel that they were working for low ends, as for a livelihood merely, but for scientific, or even moral ends. Do not hire a man who does your work for money, but him who does it for love of it. [Paragraph break] [unpublished] Commonly, if a temple is to be built, the work goes to the lowest bidder. It would be wiser to give it to the highest bidder. The question is not how the work may be well, only cheaply done. [pencil] But the fault is as much with workers as with employers. [paragraph break] [In pencil] If a man walk in the woods for love of them half of each day and see his fellows [illegible phrase] he is esteemed a loafer; but if he spends his whole day as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making earth bald before her time, he is esteemed an industrious and enterprising citizen." The 20 volume set itself is bound in the usual buckram with minor wear. The paper labels on the spines have some damge, but the contents are beautifully clean. The leaf is clean and pristine, easily the best Thoreau manuscript on the market.
