        Kariye Camii in Istanbul].

      Russian Archeological Institute in Constantinople Munich 1906 - Folio (46.5 x 35.6 cm) Title and 92 illustrations (including 2 in colour) executed by the artist N. K. Kluge. Complete. Original cloth folder with gilt lettering to upper board; rubbed, upper board partly detached. This album with more than 90 fine plates is a unique record of some of the oldest and finest surviving Byzantine mosaics and frescoes found in the The Church of the Holy Saviour in Chora. The medieval Byzantine Greek Orthodox church was converted into mosque in the 16th century, during the Ottoman era. Its interior was restored when it became a museum in 1948. The album was compiled under supervision of Fedor Shmit (1877&#151; 1937), accomplished expert on the Byzantine history, and issued as a supplement to the vol. XI of the Russian Archaeological Institute in Constantinople publication. Founded in 1895, The Russian Archaeological Institute of Constantinople was led by two prominent Russian historians, Fedor Uspenskiy and Nikodim Kondakov. It organised and sponsored research and excavations across the Ottoman Empire with the permission of the Porte, which also granted Russia a right to retain half of the excavated relicts. At the same time the Institute was also delivering a statement of the Russian Empire foreign policy, presenting Russia as the inheritor of the Byzantine Empire and supporting its long-standing ambition to conquer Constantinople. The institute seized its function with the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1906. Signed Limited Edition of Arthur Rackham's "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens" [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. Deluxe edition. Limited to 500 copies, numbered and signed by the artist (this being copy No. 470). Large quarto (10 3/4 x 8 7/8 inches; 273 x 225 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). Publisher's vellum over boards pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Endpapers of the same heavy brown paper with map of Kensington Gardens on front free endpaper. Minimal foxing to edges and margins of a few preliminary leaves, lacking silk ties, large woodcut bookplate on front paste-down. A near fine copy. 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.

      Golike and Vilborg for Upravlenie imp. zavod. Skt. Peterburg 1906 - Folio (40 x 31.5 cm). Half title on card lettered in gilt with gilt Russian eagle, VIII incl. half title and title, 422, 63, [1] pp., with photogravure frontispiece and 12 plates on india paper mounted, a chromolithographic plate and 493 numbered illustrations in text, plates with tissue guards with captions, extra-illustrated with tipped-in descriptions in English on small-format Hammer Galleries headed paper of Russian porcelain in the collection of Mrs. John W. Riser, the title-page with the neat calligraphic addition of an English translation of the title with additional text "With translations concerning the Collection of Mrs. John W. Riser. 1935 / By The Hammer Galleries, Inc.", the onion paper title/guard sheets to each plate with English translations of the captions in the same calligraphic hand, the same to occasional illustration captions, the fore-edges with applied celluloid thumb-tags, with paper inserts identifying what is flagged; occasional tears to areas around thumb-tags.Later red cloth, titled on red morocco spine label, upper cover lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, stamp to lower edge. An unusual and interesting example of the first edition of this famous work celebrating 260 years of Russian porcelain production of the best quality. It is richly illustrated and documented, and includes an important chapter on makers' marks. This copy is particularly interesting as it recalls the work of the Hammer Galleries in building collections of Russian art in the West and preserving a great deal of the Russian heritage that might otherwise have been lost. Specifically, this copy appears to have been prepared for a keen collector of Imperial Porcelain: Mrs. John W. Kiser of New York City. The Russian Imperial Porcelain Factory in St. Petersburg was founded on the orders of the Empress Elisabeth, daughter of Peter the Great. The first technical director, Christoph Conrad Hunger, proved to be unable to produce porcelain from the materials at hand, despite having worked with Bottger at Meissen and at various other European factories. Hunger was dismissed in 1747, and Dimitri Vinogradov was appointed in his place. Vinogradov had trained as a mining engineer, but was also a skilled technician with a good understanding of chemistry. Using only materials available in Russia he came up with a successful formula that produced fine quality porcelain. With informed Imperial input from Elisabeth and her successors, the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory not only survived but prospered. The present work charts the productions of the IPM from the mid-18th century until the October Revolution of 1917, beautifully illustrated with examples from all periods, and a with a plate at the end with facsimiles of the various marks that were employed.

        The Voyage of the "Scotia" - Being the Record of a Voyage of Exploration in Antarctic Seas By Three of the Staff

      William Blackwood, Edinburgh and London., 1906. First edition. Prefatory Note by William S. Bruce. Octavo. pp xxiv, 375. Numerous black-and-white photographs; two folding maps, one at rear. Original slate-grey pictorial cloth lettered in white. An account of the Scottish Antarctic Expedition, 1902-1905. Peter Speak author of William Speirs Bruce: Polar Explorer and Scottish Nationalist (2003) describes the expedition as "by far the most cost-effective and carefully planned scientific expedition of the Heroic Age" and yet it received no formal honour or recognition from the British government and its members were denied even the prestigious Polar Medal. A major achievement of the expedition was the cataloguing of more than 1,100 species of animal life, 212 of them previously unknown to science. R.H. Rudmose Brown was the chief botanist. Presentation copy, inscribed on the half-title page: "With the kind regards of R.N. Rudmose Brown" and with a short inscription on the headed notepaper of The University, Sheffield: "To Mr Hendrickson with happy memories of a day in Green Harbour - R N Rudmose Brown". The recipient Peder Leonard Henrickson (1859-1932) was a harpooner and because of his extensive experience of hunting in Arctic waters was taken on by Fridjof Nansen for the 1893-6 Norwegian Polar Expedition on board the Fram. J. Arthur Bain in his Fridtjof Nansen: His Life and Explorations (1895) describes him thus: "He is a tall, square-built man of exceptional physical powers, which have often been severely tested. When off Novaya Zemlya, in 1888, the schooner Enigheden, of Christiansund, on which he was harpooner, became a total wreck. The storm continuing, he was compelled to remain on deck for several days, during which he was literally encased in ice. He at last managed to crawl ashore, and, report says, 'was able to thaw and dry his clothes.' His herculean strength has enabled him to endure all hardships, and he entered on his latest voyage with an iron constitution and strong resolve." Green Harbour (or Grønfjorden in Norwegian) lies on the southern side of Isfjorden on Spitsbergen's west coast. Rudmose Brown published a book Spitsbergen: An Account of Exploration, Hunting, the Mineral Riches & Future Potentialities of an Arctic Archipelago (1920) and presumably he met Hendricksen during the course of his researches. Most of the white enamel lettering on the spine had flaked off but is intact, together with the illustration, on the upper cover.

        ALSs - 8 eigenhändige Briefe mit eigenhändiger Unterschrift "Branco" und "Branca".

      Berlin und Rittergut Hansdorf, Schlesien 15.XI.1906 bis 21.III.1917. 19 Seiten meist gr.-8. Teilweise mit gedrucktem Briefkopf "Kgl. Geologisch-palaeontologisches Institut und Museum". Der erste Brief leicht fleckig. Wilhelm von Branca (ursprgl. Branco) (1844-1928), Geologe und Paläontologe, Direktor des Museums für Naturkunde in Berlin. - An den Geologen und Paläontologen Wilhelm Salomon-Calvi in Heidelberg, dessen Bemühungen um ein Ordinariat an einer deutschen Universität er unterstützte.Berlin 15.XI.1906. "... Soweit ich gefragt worden bin habe ich schon bei verschiedenen Gelegenheiten Ihren Namen als einen der auf die Liste zu bringenden genannt. Mir scheint auch ... daß Sie in Greifswald jetzt Aussicht haben ..."9.X.1908. "... Dass Ihnen Kön[igsberg] entgangen ist, dazu muß man Ihnen im Grunde Glück wünschen. Ich war 4 Jahre dort. Jeder, der hinkommt, wünscht sich sogleich fort, obgleich die Menschen dort sehr nett sind. Aber das Klima! ..."1.II.1909. Dank für die Übersendung von Salomon-Calvis großem Werk über die Adamellogruppe. "... Da haben Sie etwas Prächtiges geschaffen hoffentlich kommt es zur rechten Stunde nach Leipzig an Credner, der, wie ich glauben möchte, in der Berufungssache auch mitzusprechen haben wird ...Der Akad. werde ich Donn. Ihr Buch übergeben u. das Nöthige dazu sagen ..."9.VII.1912. "... Sollten Sie nach L. kommen, dann möchte ich Ihnen den (Titular) Prof. Dr. Stremme ... warm als Nachfolger empfehlen meine rechte Hand im Unterricht, in Geol. wie Pal. ganz trefflich beschlagen ..."Rittergut Hansdorf 5.IX.1912. "... Ganz vertraulich möchte ich Ihnen mitteilen, daß ich, wegen Hannov. befragt, Sie, Stremme, Petraschek sehr empfohlen habe ... Ich glaube aber, daß die chemisch-technische Richtung Stremmes den Herren am meisten zusagen wird ..."26.X.1912. "... Dass Sie abgelehnt haben, um sich nicht zu verschlechtern, ist sehr erklärlich ... sein Sie zufrieden, dass Sie in H. bleiben konnten. Universität ist doch etwas anderes als Polytechnikum ..."21.III.1917. "... Das Ministerium ist auf unsre Vorschläge betr. Zweiteilung nicht eingegangen ... da sie ein neues Institut u. doppelte Kosten gefordert hätten. Es hat daher nur Einen für Geol. u. Pal. berufen, und zwar Pompeckj, da hier die große palaeont. Sammlung doch das Schwergewicht bildet ...Jedenfalls gehört als Vertreter der Allgem. Geologie ein Mann, der wie Sie in Mineral., Chemie, Physik, Petrogr. wurzelt und nicht, wie Penck hier am liebsten es gehabt hätte, ein Mann, der wie Stille dem Allem mehr oder weniger fern steht und nur Tektonik betreibt. P bildet sich ein, die Geologie wie ein Fachmann zu überschauen, er hat aber nur oberflächliche Kenntnisse in ihr sonst würde er auch nicht behaupten können, die Histor. Geol. stehe mitten zwischen Allgemeiner Geol. u. Pal. ... Ich gehe sogar so weit zu sagen, daß Hist. G. von der Geologie nur den Namen hat sonst hieße es nicht azoisch, palaeozoisch etc, sondern palaeogaiisch. Alle Veränderungen, die den Sedimentgest. begegnen durch Tektonik, Metamorphismus, ihre Entstehung überhaupt sind natürl. allgem. Geol. und nicht mehr historische. Das durchschaut P. nicht, so einfach es ist ..."Beiliegend der Abklatsch eines eigenhändigen Briefes von Salomon-Calvi an Branca, Heidelberg 28.VIII.1912, die Besetzung der Leipziger Professur betreffend. "... Dem Vernehmen nach hat Stille den Ruf bekommen ... Ich gehe also wieder einmal ganz leer aus ..."

        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 21 gelatin silver photographs as well as two albumen print, all either 7" x 5" or 5" x 4", and tipped-into a blank photo album. Most of the photographs are in fine condition, in the slightly worn album. Written on the first page in an unknown, but 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 the ensuing four days of fires which destroyed large portions of the city. The number of casualties was actually several thousand, 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.
