      Houghton, Mifflin & Co., Boston 1906 - Manuscript Edition, limited to 600 sets (this is no. 387), signed by the publishers, containing a leaf of Thoreau's manuscript, written in ink on both sides; the entire text concerns apples, portions of which appeared in his essay, "Wild Apples." 20 volumes, 8vo, portraits and numerous plates throughout after photographs by Herbert Gleason.

        [Photo Album]: Construction of the "Devils Bar-B-Q" at Devils Lake State Park in Baraboo, Wisconsin

      Oblong quarto album. Rawhide tied flexible boards with hand painted illustration of a Native American in a canoe, and "Snap Shots" and "Wisconsin Dells" embossed, all on the front board. 86 snapshots, mostly sepia-toned, many with printed decorative border. Various sizes, but mostly between 4.5" x 2.75" and 6" x 3.75". Small chip on the margin of one image, some modest fading, overall very good or better. A seemingly complete and unpillaged family photo album. The album is devoted about equally between outdoor family scenes with the other half devoted to construction of the family's "Devils Bar-B-Q" stone building, including some overlap - family members posing in front of the Bar-B-Q shack. The album shows stone construction, wood framing of floors and interior, an interior shot of the finished counter, as well as several featuring the neon sign, and some of what seem like a later addition to the building, as well as what seems to be an adjunct roadside drinks and ice cream stand. Undated, one picture shows a 1906 Ford, but our guess is that this is considerably later, perhaps circa mid-1920s. A wonderful album illustrating America's preoccupation with road food as the population became more mobile. .

      . Bildmaß: 31 x 41,8 cm ( Höhe x Breite ), Abstrakte Zeichnung mit Farbkreide auf Papier. Untenstehend mittig mit *Lyonel Feininger* signiert, undatiert.

The first expedition along the Blue Nile in 1902 records only a few gazelle hunts. In 1904, a second trip carried the McMillan party along the Upper Baro River of Abyssinia with hunts for hippopotamus, elephant, and lion. In addition, more elephant were bagged near Lake Tata and the River Kaia. There was hunting for a variety of plains game including giraffe and zebra throughout this expedition. The third expedition along the Blue Nile offers adventures in Abyssinia but little in the way of sport. A fourth trip made in Autumn 1905 found the party in British East Africa in the foothills of Donyo Sabuk, C. W. I Bulpett, who accompanied the Mcmillans, bagged rhinoceros, eland, and lion, while Mrs. McMillan collected her own lion" (Czech).

        British Flowers

      England, 1906-1913. Maroon cloth. Very Good. Oblong 8vo (17.5 x 21.3 cm). Maroon cloth binding with gilt title on spine, vertical parallel line tooling on boards, minor wear to ends of spine and corners. Collation: [12-tipped in folded typed sheets], [c.250] pp., illustrating 488 pen and ink drawings with watercolor washes of wild flowers around countryside villages and towns in England and Scotland. The plates are very clean with only an occasional spot. Leaves, pedicles and flowers plants are illustrated with Latin and common names and location and date drawn. There is a note for one plant that it was copied in 1912 although the date beneath the plant is dated 1906. This rare album is beautifully illustrated from field sketches that were copied and colored the same day. This unusual and rare collection of British wildflowers is separated into Dicotyledons and Monocotyledons on the preliminary folded typed sheets. On these sheets the listing of plants follows a somewhat taxonomic scheme with family heading followed by individual plants in three columns. First column has number of drawing in album in front of common name; second column Latin genus and species; and third column- location found. Most of the plants in the album are dicots on ten (10) typed sheets and monocots on the last two (2) sheets. On second typed sheet of plants there are two ink corrections for the names of genera for Caryophyllaceae. N.M. Oddy is not listed in standard biographical database for United Kingdom, but certainly is an accomplished artist and botanist who provide common and Latin names for plants he/she observed and drew from nature. There are no duplicates in this album which indicates that the author had a good knowledge of plant identification through personal experience or professional use of published flora.

        [Photo Album]: Victorian Boston

      Boston. 1906. Dark gray cloth over paper boards measuring 6" x 7.5". Contains 72 sepia toned photographs affixed to stiff black paper with a majority of the photos measuring 3" x 4" with some captions and two additional postcards. Very good with toning, rubbing, worn corners, and a detached but present first page. A photo album of turn of the century Bostonians participating in leisurely activities such as picnics and rollicking walks in the park. Some of the women photographed are posing with pipes in their mouths and are being carried around by the men of their group. There are captioned photos of the New England landscape showing off the Boston Public Gardens, "the mall," and "a bit of woods." A few of the pictures show both men and women dressed in drag posing humorously, and perhaps putting on a production of some kind. An interesting look at well-to-do Bostonians enjoying life in the early 1900s. .

Second Edition.Presentation copy inscription: To Russell George Halstead With the best wshes of his friend ML MacKenzie King Ottawa March 27-11" The first book written by Canada's politician William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canada's tenth Prime Minister. it is the story King's good friend Henry Albert "Bert" Harper ( 1873-1901) who saved a young girl's life but lost his own. "Bert" had also began courting King's younger sister, Jennie in 1900. King participated in a public subscription to raise a statue in Harper's honour and who was the inspiration for the statue of Sir Galahad which stands before the Parliament buildings in Ottawa. The young woman, Bessie Blair, fell through the ice of the Ottawa River. Harper's death affected King greatly and the result was this first book. "He knew the importance of earning a reputation for being non-partisan and with the help of his university friend Henry Albert "Bert" Harper, whom he appointed assistant editor, the [Labour] Gazette soon became a respected reference," "In the Gatineau hills of Quebec, north of Ottawa, he and Bert Harper had long walks, were enchanted by the area around Lac Kingsmere, read uplifting literature, and shared their spiritual concerns. Their friendship ended in December 1901 when Harper died trying to save a young woman from drowning. King wrote a touching memoir, The secret of heroism, but he never again gave himself over to a close friendship. " quoted from DCB online.
