        Small collection of eight salesman's sample booklets for Cuban cigar labels

      Detmold: "Gebrüder Klingenberg, lithographers". ca. 1906. "Group of sample Cuban cigar labels, 8 booklets in all with 68 various embossed labels, including labels, cigar bands, and sample wood grains for the interior of the cigar boxes. Cigar brands include Electa Superiores, Aguila de Cuba, Flor de Region, Isla de Oro, Baronet Imperiales, La Rosa Havanesa, Superfinos, Ordina Fina, and Tradition Superiores. Klingenberg was at the time the largest employer in Detmold and by the end of the 19th century was world-renown for its fine graphic design and color lithography. In the last two decades of the 19th century Klingenberg was best known for their work for the cigar industry, not only in Germany and on the continent, but also in the United States, Canada and Cuba. Contained in a large mailing envelope from Leipzig addressed to The California Wine Association, San Francisco. It is plausible that in the early years of the 20th century the firm was attempting to reach out into other sectors, notably the wine label business. "

        Zur Theorie der Lichterzeugung und Lichtsabsorption; (Eingegangen 13. März 1906). (On the Theory of Light Production and Light Absorption).

      (Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1906). No wrappers. Extracted from "Annalen der Physik" Vierte Folge. Bd. 20. Pp. 199-206. Clean and fine.. First printing of one of the papers for which Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1921. It was for the papers "Ueber einen die Erzeugung und Verwandlung des Lichtes betreffenden heuristischen Gesichtspunkt" of 1905 and "Zur Theorie der Lichterzeugung...( Theory of light emission and absorption), the offered item, that Einstein received the prize: "for his services to theoretical physics and especially for his discoveryof the law of the photoelectrical effect" - his reward was not based on relativity."The quantum theory has affected virtually every branch of physics. Its earliest and one of its most significant developments was Einstein's application of the theory to what is known as the 'photo-electrical effect'....Einstein explained this effext by suggesting that the classical view that light is emitted in the form of continous waves must be abandoned. The photo-electrical effect could be explained only as an example of quantum action where the waves of light or X-rays are emitted in minute particles or bullets. It is he size of the bullet (the wave-lenght of the radiation) which determines the number of electrons ejected. It was for this, and not for the theory of relativity, that Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1921. Einstein's two fundamental papers on this subject are "Ueber einem Erzeugung...." 1905 and Zur Theorie der Lichterzeugung (the paper offered here)" (PMM the note to 391).Weil: 12 (with an asterix, denoting a major paper) - Boni:12

        OTHELLO UNVEILED

      The Rentala House, Madras 1906 - Dimensions: 23cm x 15cm approx. A very rare First Edition copy of "Othello Unveiled" by the Indian Shakespearean scholar, Rentala Venkata Subbarau. Published in 1906 by Rentala House, Mylapore, Madras, the book accompanies "Hamlet Unveiled", published later. Subbarau also wrote "Kamala¿s Letters to Her Husband". An extremely rare book in its own right, with modern re-prints being almost the only versions available on websites such as Abebooks. The copy we are offering has a superb provenance. The volume was gifted by the author to pre-eminent Shakespearean scholar, A. C. Bradley and is inscribed to the front free endpaper "To A. C. Bradley, Esq, LLD, Litt. D, with the compliments of the author. 14th March, 1906." Andrew Cecil Bradley (1851-1935) was Professor of Poetry at Oxford University for five years during which he published his two most important works "Shakespearean Tragedy" (in 1904) and "Oxford Lectures on Poetry" (in 1909). The book contains quite a lot of pencil annotations that could well have been made by Bradley, though we cannot be certain. This copy also contains another (presumably later) inscription just above that to Bradley that reads "Marjory W. Baker, Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford". Just a bookplate to the front paste-down. A fair bit of wear/rubbing/fading/marking to the cloth covers. Spine very slightly skewed which has caused the binding to be slightly stretched to page gutters. Internal pages good (some uncut) with just slight yellowing. Binding tight. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Dog Book. Ten Parts in One Volume.

      New York, Doubleday, Page & Company 1905, 1906, (Published Feb 1905 through July 1906).First Edition. - Deep red cloth hardcover 7 1/2" x 10 1/2", Good/No Dust Jacket, 746 pages, complete ten parts of the Dog Book as originally published in 1905 through 1906, bound into one 3 3/4" thick volume. The gray paper cover for the first part is also bound into the back of the book as an example, and all the interior parts of the book look clean except for minor margin water stain here and there, few finger marks, and a margin tear at first illustration list. Book is tight, hinges are intact and tight. This gray paper cover states that this is complete in ten parts with three hundred (black and white) photographic illustrations. These are beautifully done on glossy, and still bright, either full page photos or combining 2 or 3 on one page. The red hardcover looks to be a library type binding, sturdy cloth with only gilt title and author on spine, plus two printed numbers on the bottom spine, but this was not a library book as such, there are no library markings. The front cover and spine are heavily spotted and edgeworn, the back is very faded at the top with some sort of paper remnants on the bottom third. Edge rubbing all around but not worn through. Probably should have had this rebound, but I admired the binding job which has lasted almost a hundred years. Only marks I saw were a pencilled word and a number on the gray bound-in paper cover, no names, etc. Page edges are untrimmed and darkened. A great reference on dogs, and also very interesting to read in short sessions. Good/None. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In full, ?For meritorious achievement while participating in antisubmarine patrol missions during World War II. The accomplishment of these missions in light commercial type aircraft despite the hazards of unfavorable weather conditions reflects the highest credit upon this valiant member of the Civil Air Patrol. The high degree of competence and exceptional courage he displayed in the voluntary performance of a hazardous and difficult task contributed in large measure to the security of coastal shipping and military supply lines. His patriotic efforts aided materially in the accomplishment of a vital mission of the Army Air Force in the prosecution of the war.? Accompanied by a 6.5? x 8.5? black & white unsigned photograph of Capt. Mosley receiving his medal from two men in uniform. Created by cartoonist Zack Mosley (1906-1993) in 1933, the comic strip ?Smilin? Jack? ran in more than 300 newspapers for 40 years. It was the longest running aviation comic strip. Mosley, who also designed posters, insignias and program covers for flying events, started taking flying lessons in 1932 and became a licensed pilot in 1936. He owned nine airplanes, logging over 3000 hours. Mosley was one of the founders of the Civil Air Patrol. In 1976, he was inducted into the Civil Air Patrol Auxiliary-USAF Hall of Honor."

He settled at Tuckton House, where Tolstoy had enjoyed a summer holiday in 1894. Tchertkov brought with him thirty or so other emigres, mainly middle-class artisans and professionals, who were resolved to publish the works of their mentor, Tolstoy. Chertkov put his money, energy and leadership skills into the remarkable Free Age Press, run by A. C. Fifield. Over the next few years, this small press produced 424 million pages of Tolstoy?s writing. Its propagating work was then carried on by the publisher C. W. Daniel, also a fan of Tolstoy, and who acquired the rights of the Free Age Press around 1906.

        HUEFFER (Ford Madox)

      The Pinafore Library: Christina’s fairy Book. By Ford Madox Hueffer. London: Alston Rivers, Ltd., N.D. [1906]. Post 16mo in half-sheets; half-title not called for; hand-coloured presentation leaf (unused) with series advertisements on verso precedes illustrated title-page printed in red and black; 3pp. integral advertisements at end; pp.[77]+[iii]; quarter blue rough buckram, cut flush, ledger-style, glazed printed paper boards, the front board printed pictorially in green, brown, drab, and black, the back board printed pictorially in blue, grey, pale brown, and green; end-papers printed pictorially in blue, the front and back end-papers bearing different designs, the back end-papers hand-coloured (v. note); rounded die-cut edges. Paper covering of boards chipped a little at corners, and covers generally a trifle rubbed; two or three scattered fox-spots internally, and slight cracking or scuffing of end-papers at hinges; a very good copy, nonetheless of a rare book that is almost unknown in commerce, as here, in its original binding. Issued as the first volume of ‘The Pinafore Library’, the advertisement leaf recording the other volumes as ‘The Travelling Companions’ by Lady Margaret Sackville; ‘Highways and Byways in Fairyland’ by Arthur Ransome; ‘The Fairy Doll’ by Netta Syrett; and ‘Who’s Who in Fairyland’ by Anne Pyne. Arguably Ford’s scarcest book, of which the bibliographer had never seen a copy, and no copy has been recorded at auction for well over the past thirty years. COPAC records copies only at the British Library, Oxford, Cambridge, and (possibly) the National Library of Scotland; whilst OCLC shows none in America, although Princeton has a copy added after the Naumburg collection check-list was published in the Princeton University Library Chronicle. The hand-colouring of the presentation leaf and back end-papers here has been very carefully and artistically done, but is presumably the work of a child. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        BUFFALO BILLS AFVENTYR I VILDA VASTERN

      Stockholm: Bokforlaget Svithiods Forlag, [1906-1907].. Thirty-five issues in twenty parts (volume 1) plus thirty- seven issues in twenty-one parts (volume 2). Variously paginated. Illustrations. Original pictorial wrappers, some colored but most duotone. Some moderate edge wear to the wrappers, but on the whole in near fine condition. Laid into two pictorial and gilt portfolios (moderately worn). A scarce, apparently complete run, in the original pictorial wrappers, of this Swedish periodical of Buffalo Bill western adventure stories. Begun in 1906, the year of Buffalo Bill's final tour of Europe, the series stretched into seventy-two issues in forty-one parts. The attractive illustrations are by David Ljungdahl and C.O. Bartels, and show Buffalo Bill in a variety of adventures and heroic acts. The rear wrapper of some issues contains an advertisement for the entire Buffalo Bill series, while others promote a similar periodical called "Texas Jack," and yet others a series that translates to "With Swedish Adventurers in the Dollar County," all of which give valuable information on how these periodicals were marketed in Sweden. Most of the OCLC listings are for individual issues at the National Library of Sweden, though there are also records for an issue at Princeton, and another at Northern Illinois University. Excellent evidence of the popularity throughout Europe of Buffalo Bill and the mythic American West.
