        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.

        [ETCHING] PORTRAIT OF A JEW READING SCRIPTURE [SIGNED BY THE ARTIST]

      1906. 1st Edition. Framed and Matted 9 1/2 X 12 inch etching on paper by Hermann Struck of a Jew reading Torah, signed by Struck in the lower margin. Not dated, but probably from early 20th century (1900-1910) . “Hermann Struck (1876 1944) was a German Jewish artist known for his etchings… Hermann Struck (Chaim Aaron ben David) was born in Berlin. He studied at the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts. In 1904, he joined the modern art movement known as the Berlin Secession. In 1900, Struck met Jozef Israëls, a Dutch artist, who became his mentor. Both were recognized as leading artists of their time. In 1908, Struck published ‘Die Kunst des Radierens' (‘The Art of Etching') , which became a seminal work on the subject. It was a textbook that offered both theory and practical instruction. Struck's students included Marc Chagall, Lovis Corinth, Jacob Steinhardt, Lesser Ury and Max Liebermann… In 1899, upon completing his studies at the Berlin Academy, he was banned from teaching there because he was Jewish…. Struck did commissioned portraits of Ibsen, Nietzsche, Freud, Albert Einstein, Herzl, Oscar Wilde and other leading figures of the time. ” (Wikipedia, 2017) Some wear to frame. Not examined out of frame. Etching is in Very Good Condition. (PAINT-1-8) .

The printed note on the verso of the half-title of vol.I "exemplaire imprimé pour Monsieur Bois" indicates that this issue is from a limited edition of some description - unfortunately there is no other indication of how many copies were printed.

        The Works of Charles Dickens (Including: Bleak House; A Tale of Two Cities; David Copperfield; Great Expectations; Oliver Twist; A Christmas Carol; David Copperfield; Dombey & Son; The Old Curiosity Shop; Nicholas Nickleby).

      Chapman & Hall 1906-1908, London - Octavo, 40 volumes. Full red morocco bound by Bayntun, with gilt titles and elaborate tooling, blue inlay to the inner and rear panels. This example is finely bound and is extra-illustrated with two autograph letters signed by Charles Dickens. The first letter is to Sir John Bowring. An interesting letter regretting that Dickens did not attend Bowring's lecture and mentioning his "Falstaff house" and "All the Year Round" and joking with him about taking poison from the Natives. Bowring was a travel writer and the fourth Governor of Hong Kong. Published in Letters of Charles Dickens: 1836-1870, p 180. The second letter is from London, June 13, 1848, to Edward Davis. In which Dickens apologizes for not answering his letter earlier but explains that he has no connection to the Punch office and that his amateur company will not be able to visit Newcastle. Numerous plates throughout including mounted illustrations after George Cruikshank, Hablot K. Browne. An exceptional complete set in near fine condition. Charles Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. His works are characterized by attacks on social evils, injustice, and hypocrisy. "His imaginative freshness, his deep and sincere tenderness and pity, his whole-souled humor that is seldom sharpened into wit, his superabundance of creative energy, have built a deathless niche in the temple of fame for Charles Dickens" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 184).
