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 Canadaís politician William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canadaís tenth Prime Minister. it is the story Kingís 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. Harperís 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 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Collection of Original Photographs of the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906

      Photo album of original photographs of San Francisco after the earthquake of 1906. Oblong octavo. Cloth. Contains 23 photographs, either black and white or silverprints, each either 7" x 5" or 5" x 4", all tipped-into a blank photo album. Most of the photographs are in fine condition, in the slightly worn album. Written in an unknown, probably later hand on the first page: "1906 San Francisco, Calif. earthquake, April 18 -- lasted 48 seconds, 700 lives lost! These pictures sent to us from Uncle Ed Gilson that lived in Calif." Although we found near contemporary records of a San Francisco county clerk with this name, we could determine nothing of substance about Gilson. The images show the aftermath of the earthquake which destroyed a vast portion of the city. There are pictures of ruined buildings, torn up streets, and refugee camps. The 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale, was one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, both as a result of the strong quake and even more the ensuing four days of fires which destroyed large portions of the city. The number of casualties was actually several thousands, although at the time city officials reported only 375 deaths (in the age before Federal aid it was more important to put up a good front and keep real estate prices high). Much of the city was rebuilt from the ground up and these photos convey both the scale of the destruction and the pluckiness of the survivors, who in several images, calmly observe the ruins of their city. .

        The Adventures Of Ji

      S.W. Partridge & Co - 5" x 7.5" black title on blue cloth with colour illustration to front board of bipedal fieldmouse with little boy in Victorian dress. No date, 1st edition 1906. Pages are pretty tanned and vignetted, spine cracked at feps with mild cracking in one or two other places. Slight damage to top of outside of spine which is very faded, neat previous owners's name and date (Xmas 1914) to endpaper, 3"x1.5" label stuck to free ep, presumably obscuring inscription, otherwise Very Good. Little known among the reading public though sought after by collectors, G.E. Farrow enlists the skills of the extraordinary artist, Charles Tresidder. Dozens of 'Beatrix- Potter-on-acid', type illustrations throughout the book make this an amazing find. Photos don't do the quality or imaginative genius of the illustrator justice. An amazing book. There are currently no copies for sale, at least none listed or advertised, anywhere on the internet. In fact, the rarity of this book is such that there are to my knowledge, only records of three other copies; one in The British Library, one in Oxford University Library and one in The National Library of Scotland. This is a very, very rare book and despite its faults still represents to the serious collector with the only current possibility of acquiring an impossibly rare find.

Herein will be found photographs of their divers products, including [fill in with some names of locomotives].

        All Four Parts of "Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration" that were published on the Wiener Werkstatte. Four Volumes

      (Darmstadt: Koch. 1906-1909). First. First editions. Four volumes. Thin quartos. Uniformly bound in original white cloth with Wiener Werkstatte insignia on the front boards. Endpapers illustrated in color by Koloman Moser. Heavily illustrated. All four volumes are fine. Very rare collection of four volumes about the Wiener Werkstatte from the library of Austrian artist Egon Schiele with his estate stamp on the front free endpaper of three of the four volumes ("Nachlass Egon Schiele," which conforms to the estate stamps on his posthumously sold artwork). Schiele died at age 28 of the Spanish flu epidemic. The volumes and contents are as follows:1905: "Wiener Werkstatte." Josef Hoffmann und Koloman Moser, pages 1 - 46.1905: Josef Hoffmann - Kolo Moser. "Die moderne in Wien," pages 521 - 564.1906: Josef Hoffmann - Kolo Moser, pages 149 - 192. 1909: "Schonheit als Weltanschauung (Cabaret Fledermaus)," pages 153 - 207.The plates exhibit a perfect overview of all the items produced by the Wiener Werkstatte: furniture, jewelry, dishes, earthenware, leatherware, boxes, bindings, graphic design, glass-painting, lamps, etc. One article is dedicated to the Cabaret Fledermaus showing the interior design, the graphic design of the program, etc.In 1906 Schiele applied at the Kunstgewerbeschule (School of Arts and Crafts) in Vienna, where Gustav Klimt had once studied, and which was heavily influenced by the Wiener Werkstatte, and where presumably Schiele himself was exposed to and heavily influenced by the style.Individual issues are occasionally found, usually rebound. This set of all four volumes devoted to the Wiener Werkstatte, in original bindings and from the library of Egon Schiele, is exceptional. .

        A Staff Officer's Scrap-Book During the Russo-Japanese War

      London: Edward Arnold. 1906. Fourth impression. Octavo. Blue cloth gilt. Very good or better with some wear to the extremities, and light spotting to the boards. Tipped in the front endpapers of this copy are four Typed Letters Signed and one Signed photograph from the author. In addition there is another letter gifting the book to, and subsequent correspondence between, Hamilton and John Page Nicholson, a Colonel during the American Civil War. The letters have been folded for mailing with only minor general wear, near fine. Hamilton was knighted in 1902 for a distinguished record in India, Africa, and Afghanistan. His image was later tarnished due to his involvement in the failed Gallipoli Campaign during World War I, subsequently detailed in his two volume Gallipoli Diaries published immediately following the war. The letters, on British War Office stationery and dated between 1906-1909, thank Nicholson for his interest in the book, oblige his request for a photo, and include a few passing references to the American Civil War including the battles at Antietam and Gettysburg. Nicholson was a veteran of the Savannah and South Carolina campaigns; a leading military historian, most notably the editor of the two volume Pennsylvania at Gettysburg; and an early supporter of preservation efforts at Gettysburg and Valley Forge. An interesting association copy connecting two notable military men of letters. .
