      Russia, 1906 - White China Dinner Plate made for the Imperial Family of Czar Nicholas II in 1906 to replace a plate manufactured during the reign of his grandfather, Czar Alexander IIFine white china dinner plate made by the Imperial Porcelain factory in St. Petersburg. The 9.25? diameter plate features a gold rim and the crest and cypher of Czar Alexander II in red and gold. On verso, appears the emblem of Czar Alexander II and the date ?1906? indicating this was a replacement plate made during the reign of Czar Nicholas II just after the Russian Revolution of 1905. Replacement plates were manufactured at the Imperial Porcelain factory until 1914. Evidently the plate here offered was previously broken in three pieces and subsequently repaired. Czar Alexander II was the Emperor of Russia from 1855-1881 when he was assassinated in St. Petersburg.

        Beknopte historie, van het Mogolsche keyzerryk, en de zuydelyke aangrensende ryken. Batavia, C.C. Renhard, 1758. Folio. With a woodcut device on title-page (VOC ship on a shield, flanked by Poseidon and Amphitrite, topped by an armillary sphere), folding letterpress genealogical table, 2 large woodcuts (plus 1 repeat) with letterpress text, representing the seals of 3 Mogul rulers (each with 2 concentric circles with 11 or 13 smaller circles inbetween, with the ruler's name in the centre and his predecessors numbered in the surrounding circles), a woodcut headpiece, tailpiece (plus repeats) and 3 large decorated initials (3 series). Modern blue paper wrappers.

      Bijdragen taal-, land- en volkenkunde Ned.-Indie, LXI (1906), pp. 374-376; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 561. First edition of a history of the Mogul Empire and its southern possessions. The foreword notes that the anonymous author based his account of northern India partly on François Valentijn's history of the Dutch East Indies, Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indiën (1724-1726), vol. IV, no. 2, but that he made many additions and corrections. For the southern regions, however, he turned to natives familiar with their antiquities ("ervarene inlanders in hare oudheden"). The addenda leaf, loosely inserted in this copy, is often lacking. The woodcut circles, on pp. 33, 36 & 39 represent seals of the Mogul rulers Eurangzeeb, Prince Mohamed Azem and finally Mahomed Sjah (1719-1748), with the names of their predecessors numbered. The book includes information on the Moguls' relations with the Persians, Afghans and others.The Mogul Empire was an imperial power that ruled most of the Indian subcontinent from the early 16th to the mid-19th centuries. At the height of its power, around 1700, it controlled most of the subcontinent and parts of what is now Afghanistan. After 1725 the empire declined rapidly.This was Renhard's most ambitious work as printer to the VOC at Batavia. It is mostly well printed from freshly cast type and gives an excellent overview of the printing office's materials, primarily 17th-century Dutch roman and italic types. It shows the considerable expansion of the press's stock in the preceding years.With the folding table slightly browned, a small hole in 1 leaf and a small marginal tear in the title-page, but generally in fine condition, with generous margins and including the errata leaf.

        Autograph Letter Signed to G.W. Card on University of Adelaide letterhead

      University of Adelaide: 23 September, 1906. Single sheet of note paper entirely in Mawson's hand, folded to 20.3 x 12.6 cm, "The University, Adelaide" letterhead, slight tear at old fold but very good. An attractive scientific letter from Douglas Mawson relating to an early and still unresolved controversy regarding uranium ores from Australia. The letter is addressed to "My dear Card"; given the contents, this is certainly G.W. Card of the NSW Department of Mines. Card gave the first ever account of Australian radioactive minerals in a report published in 1894, and became an authority in the field. Mawson graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering from the University of Sydney in 1902, and his early work on geology led to his appointment as a lecturer in mineralogy and petrology at the University of Adelaide. He immediately became interested in the glacial geology of South Australia, but he also worked on radioactive minerals, identifying and describing the mineral davidite (containing titanium and uranium) in specimens from the region now known as Radium Hill, near Olary. That deposit was the first major radioactive ore body discovered in Australia. Mawson's letter relates to a controversy caused by the French mining engineer Charles Poulot, among other things credited with discovering the properties of carnotite, the major source for radium. In a 1909 paper by T.H. Laby, Poulot was quoted as saying that he had seen an enormous amount of apparently Australian ore from New England at a treatment works in Germany. The veracity of Poulot's assertion has been questioned, but as this 1906 letter asserts, it had already caused great consternation among the scientific fraternity even before Laby's paper was published. Indeed, Card had obviously approached Mawson about this bombshell, because the latter writes without preamble: 'How on earth did the 7 tons of radio-active ore leave Melbourne without general knowledge. Don't you think that M. Poulot has got the wrong details somehow or perhaps been "stuffed" by the German firm.' Mawson goes on to speculate on whether the ore being discussed has not, in fact, come from Austrian silver-lead mines, and discusses the valuable offers he has been made for uranium ores from 'London and New York brokers'. The letter concludes with a discussion of how discouraged Mawson is becoming regarding the ore from Olary. Olary was the site of some of Mawson's earliest significant scientific research, especially regarding glacial formation. On the controversy see David Branagan, 'Davidite and Other Early Events in Australia's Uranium Story', Journal and Proceedings of the Royal Society of New South Wales, vol. 140).

      . 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 Cezanne, 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..

He requests hospitality and "proper official courtesy" for Clark from the gentlemen of the Diplomatic and Consular Representatives of the United States in South and Central America during his South American visit. From his days as Assistant Secretary of the Navy through his presidency, Theodore Roosevelt's political career was closely tied with the politics of South and Central America. Only a month before writing this letter, Roosevelt made political history by being the first president to make an official diplomatic tour outside of the continental United States by travelling to Panama and Puerto Rico. In addition to observing the construction of the Panama Canal, where the posed working the controls of a large steam shovel for the now iconic photograph, Roosevelt made efforts to improve working conditions to ensure the safety of those working on the Panama Canal and to establish a civilian government in Puerto Rico without infringing on the protectorate's autonomy. Regardless of his level of involvement with the United Society of Christian Endeavor, this letter stands testament to Roosevelt's commitment to developing diplomatic relationships with Central and South American countries.. Signed by Author. Very Good.

        "Dorfstraße im Spessart am Sonntag"

      1906. Öl auf Leinwand, links unten signiert und datiert "Eug. Bandell 1906", verso auf dem Keilrahmen von der Künstlerin nochmals signiert und datiert sowie betitelt. 84,5:64 cm. Literatur: S. Sumera, Eugenie Bandell (1858-1918), Eine Frankfurter Malerin - das Spätwerk. Magisterarbeit, Univ. Frankfurt am Main, 1996, Nr. 99; Ausst. Katalog: Frankfurter Malerei seit der Jahrhundertwende. Galerie und Kunstantiquariat Joseph Fach, Frankfurt am Main, 1988, Nr. 6 mit Farbabb. auf dem Titel; Ausst. Katalog: Frauen an der Staffelei - Ein vernachlässigtes Kapitel der Frankfurter Kunstgeschichte. Frankfurter Sparkasse von 1822, Frankfurt am Main 1994.. Die Malerin und Radiererin Eugenie Bandell, Tochter eines wohlhabenden Kaufmanns, begann wohl nach privaten Zeichenstudien spätestens 1887 ihre künstlerische Ausbildung an der Zeichenakademie in Hanau und war Schülerin des für seine Ansichten von altertümlichen Straßen und Plätzen bekannten Malers und Zeichners Paul Andorff (1849-1920). Anscheinend besuchte sie in Hanau parallel die private Malschule des bekannten Genre-, Historien- und Landschaftsmalers Georg Cornicelius (1825-1898). Nach Abschluß ihres Studiums in Hanau im Jahr 1895 ging sie nach Frankfurt am Main, um privat die Radiertechnik bei dem Radierer Bernhard Mannfeld (1848-1925) zu erlernen. Ein Weiterstudium schloß sich 1899-1900 am Städelschen Kunstinstitut im Privatatelier des von München kommenden Malers Wilhelm Trübner (1851-1917) an. Zahlreiche Ausstellungen folgten in den nächsten Jahren, so u.a. in Frankfurt, Berlin, München, Baden-Baden, Karlsruhe, Mainz, Wiesbaden, Düsseldorf, Zürich und Paris. Rasch steigender Erfolg brachte ihr im Jahr 1902 ein eigenes Atelier am Städelschen Kunstinstitut ein, das ihr bis zu ihrem Tode zu Verfügung stand. Sie war Mitglied des fortschrittlichen "Frauenkunstverbandes", den 1913 so bekannte Künstlerinnen wie Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945) gegründet hatten.

        Lord Randolph Churchill

      New York: Macmillan & Co., Ltd., 1906. First U.S. edition, only printing. Hardcover. Very good plus. This is the first U.S. edition of Winston Churchill's biography of his father, Lord Randolph Churchill. The two-volume work concentrates on Lord Randolph's career in Parliament after 1880. When he first contemplated writing his father's biography Winston Churchill was a still an itinerant soldier and war correspondent who had yet to write his first book. The son still dwelt very much in his father's shadow, both emotionally and in terms of the political career to which he already aspired. By the time the work was published in 1906, the young Winston Churchill already had half a dozen books to his credit and half a decade in Parliament. By 1906 Churchill had already left his father's political party, prevailed in the same political battle that had terminated his father's career, and was just two years from his first Cabinet post. Churchill was criticized by some reviewers for overplaying his father's accomplishments. Nonetheless, the work was well received both as a frank portrayal of Randolph's extremes and as a showcase for the son's literary talent. The U.S. edition is visually similar but aesthetically superior to the British, having gilt top page edges and a lightly scored cloth binding. Here is a very good plus set. The red cloth bindings remain square, tight, bright, and unfaded with nicely rounded spines and vivid gilt. We note no color shift between the boards and spine. The bindings show modest scuffing and wear to extremities. The contents are notably bright and we find absolutely no spotting. The top edge gilt remains bright. The sole previous owner inscription - on the second free endpaper of each volume - is an inked gift inscription dated in both volumes "xmas 1906". These inscriptions confirm what the identical shelf appearance indicates - that this is a lifelong mated set, rather than a "married" pair. The only other indication of previous ownership we find is a small Montreal bookseller sticker affixed to the lower left corner of each rear pastedown. Not quite a fine set, but certainly very clean with quite respectable shelf presentation. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A17.2, Woods/ICS A8(ab), Langworth p.71

        The American Salvation Army. Ritual and Manual

      Philadelphia:. 1906.. Paperback. Very good condition. A fascinating record of a split which occurred in the early history of the Salvation Army, when the American church broke away from the original Salvation Army (England) as founded in the East End of London by William Booth. It was Booth who instituted the military structure (naming himself General) and summarized the organization's approach as "Soup, soap, salvation". & & As the first section of the manual, "Why the American Salvation Army Was Organized", explains, "Judged from an American standpoint, General Booth's methods were autocratic. He maintained that a percentage of all the funds raised in America should be sent to England, and that all Salvation Army work throughout the world should be directed by himself ... Major Thomas E. Moore contended that funds raised for Salvation Army work in America should be used entirely in this country, and also that the organization here should have an American charter. ... Moore ... consulted the other officers of the Army in this country, and he and a large number of them decided to withdraw from the Booth Salvation Army". (p3). The Salvation Army in the United States (which was the name of the organization from which Moore split off) brought a suit in 1907 against the American Salvation Army in a struggle for control of the organization. It contended in part that the new organization had copied practices and materials, including this "Ritual and Manual". The logo of the new organization is printed on the front wrapper; it consists of a Victoria Cross surmounted by a crucifix and crown, with the words "Present, Salvation, Full, and Free" in each quadrant. Above this is a banner emblazoned with "The American Salvation Army" and an eagle.& & Contents of the booklet include: Reasons for Organizing; Articles of Incorporation; Constitution; and Acquiring Real Estate. Under "rules and regulations" are sections pertaining to duties, uniform, commissions, salary, ordination and appointment of officers; duties & camp meetings; baptisms; marriage; burial of the dead and more. 16mo, 128pp, Index. Quarter green cloth and stiff paper wrappers with standard of the American Salvation Army printed in black; staple bound. Green cloth rubbed at top of spine, rear wrapper very slightly chipped at top edge. Not in OCLC.

      Amsterdam, S.L. van Looy, 1906. Original honey-coloured full vellum with dark brown and pale blue decorations and lettering (batik) combined with lines and dots blocked in gold (signed by T[heo] N[ieuwenhuis]). All edges gilt.

Tiny dents around the H of Hofker's name.* Fantastic deluxe binding executed in batik after a design by Nieuwenhuis. This magnificent edition, one of the pinnacles of Dutch Art Nouveau bookbinding, was distributed among friends and admirers of Hofker (1864-1945), a contributor to the periodical De Nieuwe Gids and a friend of many 'Tachtigers'. Nieuwenhuis specially painted the owner's monogram on the lower cover of the copies that were sold. In this case it is probably 'JU' or 'UJ' (it is a bit vague), but no corresponding name is known. Binding signed by J. Mensing. Braches, Nieuwe Kunst Documentatie (31.05.11) cf. 1488:11. A copy of the ordinary edition is added for comparison.

        Storytime A Little Book for Little People

      London: Henry Frowde, Hodder & Stoughton, circa, 1906. Small quarto, full colour frontispiece and one plate, 18 leaves, illustrated, printed in red and black; a pristine copy in the original stitch-sewn purple paper wrappers, colour plate tipped on to front cover; in the original mailing envelope of matching purple embossed card, envelope a little sunned, and missing original tie-back, with a second tipped on colour plate, addressed in cursive script, two 1d New South Wales stamps at top right, cancelled "Edgecliff" (date illegible). Scarce Rackham title, mailed from Edgecliff. An attractive rarity: an almost unrecorded Rackham title, in pristine condition and still with its original decorated mailing envelope, sent from New South Wales to South Australia around 1910. The beautifully decorated envelope has been sent to "Master Mortie deLiut" (sp?) of Kingston, Lacepede Bay, South Australia. Two New South Wales "one penny" stamps are affixed, and have been cancelled at Edgecliff; although the date of cancellation is sadly indistinct, the stamps are certainly contemporaneous with the book. Herbert Strang was a pseudonym used by two English writers, George Herbert Ely and James L'Estrange, for their children's books. Perhaps better known for their books for boys, they used the name Mrs Herbert Strang for their stories written for girls, as here (see The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature). The frontispiece is by Arthur Rackham, and signed 1906 (hence the tentative date for the book). The image depicts a charming scene from the book, and is captioned "'I tell you,' Robert said, 'it's raining.'" This line is also the first sentence of the book, perhaps implying that the image was commissioned for this title (or, just as likely, that the first story was written to fit an existing plate). The book is well-illustrated throughout, and includes a second full-colour plate by the renowned illustrator Rosa C. Petherick, with the caption "The Cradle that Swings". This is a particularly rare work, with no listing on OCLC, and it is not recorded in Hudson's Bibliography of Rackham nor Gumuchian's Livres d'Enfance.

        Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

      1906. first edition. Arthur Rackham's Peter Pan in a Wonderful Binding by Cedric ChiversCHIVERS, Cedric, binder. RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator. BARRIE, J.M. Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (From “The Little White Bird”). With Drawings by Arthur Rackham. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1906. First trade edition. Quarto (9 7/16 x 7 3/16 inches; 240 x 182 mm.). xii, 125, [1] pp. Color frontispiece and forty-nine color plates (collected at the end of the text) mounted on heavy brown paper, with descriptive tissue guards. Four black and white drawings (two on the title and one each on p. 1 and p. 14). Bound ca. 1906 by Cedric Chivers of Bath (stamp-signed on rear turn-in) in full brown morocco with two circular green morocco onlays and a rectangular vellucent panel in the center (4 1/2 x 1 7/8 inches; 115 x 48 mm.) featuring a watercolor drawing depicting an elderly Fairy (from plate 13) framed by gilt and with four vellucent medallions (1 inch; 25 mm. in diameter) in the corners featuring four watercolor drawings from various color-plates including the Mouse from plate 32 and a fairy from plate 34. Single line gilt border on covers, heart-shaped gilt design on back. Smooth spine decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt. Gilt ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. A very fine and stunning example of Cedric Chivers at his best.Who created the vellucent illustrations for the panels remains a mystery but “in his large bindery at Portway, Bath, [Cedric] Chivers employed about forty women for folding, sewing, mending, and collating work, and in addition, five more women worked in a separate department, to design, illuminate, and colour vellum for book decoration, and to work on embossed leather. These five were Dorothy Carl[e]ton Smyth, Alice Shepherd, Miss J.D. Dunn, Muriel Taylor, and Agatha Gales. Most Vellucent bindings were designed by H. Granville Fell, but the woman most frequently employed for this kind of work was probably Dorothy Carl[e]ton Smyth” (Marianne Tidcombe, Women Bookbinders 1880-1920, p. 86).J.M. Barrie’s novel The Little White Bird (1902) “contains the first sketches for Peter Pan. The narrator is ‘a gentle, whimsical, lonely old bachelor’, an author by profession, whose ambition is to have a son. He meets a penniless young couple whose own son David becomes a substitute in his affections. He explains to David that ‘all children in our part of London were once birds in the Kensington Gardens; and that the reason there are bars on nursery windows and a tall fender by the fire is because very little people sometimes forget that they no longer have wings, and try to fly away through the window or up the chimney.’ The central chapters of the book tell the story of one such child, Peter Pan, who ‘escaped from being a human when he was seven days old…and flew back to the Kensington Gardens’…The Peter Pan chapters of The Little White Bird were re-issued in 1906 as Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, with colour plates by Arthur Rackham; this was the book which first made Rackham’s work famous. It should not be confused with Peter and Wendy (1911), Barrie’s novelization of the play Peter Pan” (The Oxford Companion to Children’s Literature).Latimore and Haskell, p. 27. Riall, p. 74.
