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. .

"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.

        A Királyi József-M?egyetem 1906. évi nagy tanulmányi kirándulásának naplója. Irta: -- m?egyetemi tanársegéd. [Account on the Great-Excursion of the Royal Hungarian Joseph Technical University, in the Year 1906. (Offprint of the Magyar Mérnök- és Építész-Egylet Heti Értesít?je, 1906, no. 43.)]

      Pátria Irodalmi Váll[alat]. és Nyomdai R[észvény].-Társaság, Budapest 1906 - First edition of the first publication of Kármán. Offprint of the Magyar Mérnök- és Építész-Egylet Heti Értesít?je, 1906, no. 43. In original paper, illustrated with a photo by Jen? Leitner. 40 p. The first publication of Kármán. Theodore (Tódor) von Kármán (1881-1963) was a Hungarian-American physicist, mathematician, aerospace engineer. He achieved key advances in aerodynamics, mainly in the field of supersonic and hypersonic airflow characterization. Kármán studied engineering in Budapest, later he became assistant in hydraulics at the same University. His research at this time was on fluids and on the compression of structures which had wide ranging applications. In 1906 Kármán left Budapest to study at Göttingen, where he met with Felix Christian Klein, David Hilbert and Ludwig Prandtl. In 1908 his interest turned to aeronautics after watching pioneering aviation flights in Paris. In 1913 accepted a post as director of the Aeronautical Institute at Aachen University. During WWI he served in the Austro-Hungarian army, where he worked on a design of military aircraft and a helicopter. In 1930 Kármán emigrated to the United States and accepted the directorship of the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at California Institute of Technology. In 1933 Kármán found the U. S. Institute of Aeronautical Sciences, and continued his researches on fluid mechanics, turbulence theory and supersonic flight. In 1944 United States Government set up the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for rocket researches with von Kármán as director. He resigned in 1949, but remained advisor for the United States Air Force and the NASA. In 1963 he received the first Nation Medal of Science by President John F. Kennedy "for his leadership in the science and engineering basic to aeronautics; for his effective teaching and related contributions in many fields of mechanics, for his distinguished counsel to the Armed Services, and for his promoting international cooperation in science and engineering".

        Die Geschichte der Juliette oder Die Vorteile des Lasters. Und: Die Geschichte der Justine oder die Nachteile der Tugend. Aus dem Französischen zum ersten Male ins Deutsche übertragen von Dr. Martin Isenbiel.

      O.O., Privatdruck, 1906.. 2 Bände. Gr.8°. 2 Bll., 607 S. und 2 Bll., 419 S. Weinrotes biegsames Orig.-Ganzleder mit goldgepr. RTiteln.. Erste dt. Ausgabe. Eins von 550 numerierten Exemplaren mit der ausdrücklichen Verpflichtung gegenüber den Subskribenten, niemals einen Nachdruck zu veranstalten. Die Titelblätter jeweils in rot/schwarz gedruckt, das Impressum jeweils in rot. Der Übersetzername ist ein Pseudonym (für Richard Fiedler) und verspottet einen bekannten Staatsanwalt gleichen Namens, der sich leidenschaftlich der Pornographie-Verfolgung widmete. Bereits der Druck dieses Werkes gestaltete sich schwierig, es mußte in verschiedenen Druckereien gedruckt werden. Hieraus resultiert auch das unterschiedliche Druckbild. Nach Erscheinen hatte das Werk eine wahre Odyssee durch Europa zu meistern, immer auf der Flucht vor den Pornographiejägern. Sehr viele Exemplare haben das wohl nicht überlebt. Denn schon Stern-Szana schreibt: "Heute gehören diese zwei Bände zu den großen literarischen Seltenheiten". Und in der Tat ist die dt. Erstausgabe von Justine und Juliette ungleich seltener als etwa die "120 Tage von Sodom". Einbände etwas berieben, Ecken und Kapitale beschabt. Unbeschnitten. Titelbllätter etwas fleckig, eines knittrig. Buchblock am Vorsatz gebrochen. Etwas gelockert, eine Seite fast lose. Stellenweise leicht braunfleckig, einige Seiten mit Läsuren. Polunbi 72 ("unbauchbar zu machen"). Hayn-Got. IX, 518f. Stern-Szana 105. Kryptadia 304 u. 305. ------------------------------------------------------------ English description available on request.

        Utopia

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, (1906). Small quarto. 161pp. One of 100 copies. Printed in red and black with initials by Eric Gill. This is also the first book by the Ashendene Press with marginal notes printed in red. This copy features a striking designer binding by Franklin Mowery of black morocco blind-tooled with an intersecting and slightly shifting pattern of deep rules. The design evokes a distant horizon, or perhaps the slowly shifting waters of the sea surrounding More's imagined island. Binder's initials and date gilt-stamped to rear turn-in. Soft black suede doublures complete the design. Mowery is Head of Conservation at the Folger Shakespeare Library and has maintained a private practice as a designer bookbinder and conservator for more than thirty years. Very fine. Bookplate of Jan van der Marck to front flyleaf.
