        [Photo Album]: San Francisco Earthquake and Seattle World's Fair

      San Francisco and Seattle. 1906-1909. Oblong small octavo. Measuring 6" x 7". Black textured leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 128 sepia-toned or black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring between 1" x 1" and 4" x 5", some with captions. Very good album with rubbing and edgewear with near fine photographs.A photo album beginning with a trip to the Seattle World's Fair in 1909 through 1914. The photographs are not in chronological order. The fair's theme was Alaska--Yukon--Pacific Exposition and was originally set to take place in 1907 for the 10th anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush but was pushed back to 1909 due to a conflict with the Jamestown Exposition. The photos begin with snapshots around the city and of the coast. There are images of Seattle harbor with sailboats in the distance as well as large cruise ships and the wooded areas surrounding the city. The fair also included exhibits from Canada and Japan, as well as Alaskan Native American tribes and the Igorrotes from the Philippines. The Igorrotes are seen in snapshots participating in tribal dances, climbing trees, and holding spears. One of these photos shows a young Igorrotes boy, with the shadow of a bowler hat-wearing fairgoer at his feet. Other photos show candids of fashionably dressed revelers walking through the exhibit as well as photos of the architecture of the fair and scenes from exhibits including the maple ice cream stand in the Canadian section. Later photos show men hiking in the Washington wilderness as well as boating and shooting. Photos from 1910 show a trip to "the seaside" with images of men and women posed on a beach and in a large boat. Towards the end of the album the photographs show the results of an earthquake which appears to be the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. These photos show ruined buildings and people walking around the rubble. One photo shows San Francisco Victorian homes with blown out windows. The final pages show the travelers posed for candids and portraits while hiking and on picnics in Northern California and Washington and includes a photo strip images of a couple. A wonderful collection of well-composed travel photographs featuring events in Seattle and San Francisco. .

ÉDITION ORIGINALE TRES RARE. Achevé d'imprimer par Motteroz pour H. de Waroquier - 1906 - 202 pages. Superbe reliure plein maroquin bleu marine, signée Gruel. Dos à nerfs orné et doré. Triple filet doré encadrant les plats. Tête dorée sur témoins, non rogné. Large dentelle intérieure. Gardes de soie bleue moirée. Pas de rousseur. Parfait état. Format grand in-4°(32x25). Henry de Waroquier (1881-1970) est un peintre, sculpteur, dessinateur, photographe, et graveur français. Il est d'abord professeur de composition décorative à l'École Estienne à Paris, et professeur de peinture à l'Académie scandinave. Waroquier peint surtout la Bretagne de 1900 à 1910, en se rapprochant du cloisonnisme des Nabis. Puis il fréquente Modigliani et l'École de Paris. Les voyages qu'il fait en Italie en 1912 et en 1920, puis en Espagne en 1921, l'amènent à peindre des paysages et des visages humains. Il participe au salon des Tuileries de 1938 sur le thème de l'Espagne. Il est d'abord influencé par le cubisme, mais des éclairages dramatiques ainsi qu'un travail sur des visages pathétiques donnent à son oeuvre un accent tragique. Également fresquiste, il exécute en 1937 une composition murale pour le palais de Chaillot, La Tragédie. Le musée d'art moderne de la ville de Paris présente une exposition de ses sculptures dans les années 1950. Henri de Waroquier est aussi poète et photographe. Il était ami de Georges Duhamel, de Paul Claudel, et de Gaston Bachelard. Il nous reste figer dans le temps par une estampe de Henri Vergé-Sarrat (Henry de Waroquier dans son atelier) dont un exemplaire est conservé au Musée du Domaine départemental de Sceaux. Yvonne (1884- ?) était la fille de Paul Mirabaud (1848-1908) banquier philatéliste français. Il est l'un des signataires du Roll of Distinguished Philatelists qui distingue «les pères de la philatélie». C'est l'histoire de l'enfance d'Yvonne Mirabaud et la vie de sa famille de 1884 à 1900 à l'aide des photographies de l'époque. C'est un des rares livres de Henry de Waroquier. 1ère Edition [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE MIRROR OF THE SEA

      1906. Memories and Impressions. London: Methuen & Co., (1906). 40 pp ads dated Aug 1906. Original green cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition of Conrad's first volume of nonfiction, a rambling discourse about life on the sea. Though originally planned as a collection of sketches, during preparation for publication Conrad converted it into a continuous book. As he wrote to his agent:~My idea is a sort of reminiscent discourse running on like this: I. II. III. IV. etc etc XX. XXI. and so on, with no titles or blank or half blank pages between; something, in short, like poor Gissing's Ryecroft papers; and only the headings at the top of pages being changed according to the matter created.~"Conrad's method, which was mainly followed, was exceptionally shrewd as a way of getting around the unmarketability of short pieces or even short stories. A continuous book, even his, stood some chance of sales" [Karl].~This copy has August ads, which is the primary state (though the book was not actually published until October, and though some copies have July ads). The fore-edge is untrimmed, which again is the primary state (some copies, supposedly those headed for libraries, were issued trimmed). Condition is just about fine (one small mark on the rear cover); the original endpapers are not cracked, and there is none of the usual foxing on the textual leaves within. Cagle A11a, binding a.

        [MAIN WORK OF THE FOUNDER OF RUSSIAN COSMISM] Filosofiya obshchego dela. Stat'i, mysli i pisma [i.e. The Philosophy of the Common Deed. Articles, Thoughts, and Letters] / edited by Kozhevnikov and Peterson

      Verniy, 1906; Moscow, 1913. V.1. [2], XII, 731, [3] pp.; V.2. IX, 473 pp. 24,5x16 cm. In two modern half-leather bindings. Good condition. Extremely rare set of the first edition of the main work by Fyodorov. Vol. 1 was printed locally in Verniy (now Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan), only 480 copies were produced - this explains the level of rarity. Nikolay Fyodorov (1829-1903) is one of the most interesting Russian philosophers, futurologist and the founder of Russian cosmism. During his lifetime he never published his books but preferred to spread his thoughts in manuscripts, occasionally printing something but always under pseudonyms. It was done because Fyodorov avoided the publicity and didn't like the idea of getting paid for his work. This edition was prepared by his followers Vladimir Kozhevnikov and Nikolay Peterson who did it in Fyodorov's spitir - the limited number of copies was printed not for sale but to be distributed among the libraries and the scientific societies. As a futurist a lot of his highly unorthodox ideas can be found here: immortality, revival of the dead, ocean and space colonization. The core idea of Fyodorov's philosophy is the overcoming of death. Today Fyodorov is credited with foreseeing the ecological problems of the 20th century, raising the problem of states and armies destroying the Earth. He pictures the scene where humans live in a harmony with the nature, rule it and eventually overcome the death itself. Fyodorov always regarded the Earth as a part of the universe, so in his writings there is a lot on space exploration. One of his other original ideas was his view on the Holy Trinity: he thought that the Holy Ghost could be regarded as the 'daughter' of God. Tsiolkovsky's famous slogan 'Earth is the cradle of the humanity but the humanity should not remain the the cradle forever' is inspired by Fyodorov, and Tsiolkosvky can be considered his student. It's also known that Korolev studied 'The Philosophy of the Common Deed' very carefully. No copies in the Worldcat.

        British Flowers

      1906-1913, England 1906 - Oblong 8vo (17.5 x 21.3 cm). Maroon cloth binding with gilt title on spine, vertical parallel line tooling on boards, minor wear to ends of spine and corners. Collation: [12-tipped in folded typed sheets], [c.250] pp., illustrating 488 pen and ink drawings with watercolor washes of wild flowers around countryside villages and towns in England and Scotland. The plates are very clean with only an occasional spot. Leaves, pedicles and flowers plants are illustrated with Latin and common names and location and date drawn. There is a note for one plant that it was copied in 1912 although the date beneath the plant is dated 1906. This rare album is beautifully illustrated from field sketches that were copied and colored the same day. This unusual and rare collection of British wildflowers is separated into Dicotyledons and Monocotyledons on the preliminary folded typed sheets. On these sheets the listing of plants follows a somewhat taxonomic scheme with family heading followed by individual plants in three columns. First column has number of drawing in album in front of common name; second column Latin genus and species; and third column- location found. Most of the plants in the album are dicots on ten (10) typed sheets and monocots on the last two (2) sheets. On second typed sheet of plants there are two ink corrections for the names of genera for Caryophyllaceae. N.M. Oddy is not listed in standard biographical database for United Kingdom, but certainly is an accomplished artist and botanist who provide common and Latin names for plants he/she observed and drew from nature. There are no duplicates in this album which indicates that the author had a good knowledge of plant identification through personal experience or professional use of published flora.

        Lord Randolph Churchill

      1906. First Edition . CHURCHILL, Winston. Lord Randolph Churchill. London: Macmillan, 1906. Two volumes. Octavo, modern full navy morocco, raised bands, spine compartments gilt-stamped with Churchill lion emblems, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. $2000.First edition of ChurchillÂ’s distinguished biography of his father, with two photographic frontispiece portraits of Lord Randolph, handsomely bound.“In My Early Life, Winston joked about his fatherÂ’s low opinion of himÂ… Beneath WinstonÂ’s tremendous stature as a world leader, his belligerence, his confidence, there ran this dark, poignant thread, of a son working vainly to win his fatherÂ’s approval” (Rubin, 106, 108). “Outside Parliament, Churchill devoted much of his time during 1904 and 1905 to compiling a biography of Lord Randolph. He was motivated in part by a desire for an intimate knowledge of his father that had been denied him during Lord RandolphÂ’s lifetimeÂ… When the book emerged in 1906, it was widely hailed as one of the best political biographies in English and its prose style is still greatly admired todayÂ… Contemporary readers were struck by the frankness and openness of the account, contrasting favorably with the pious acts of homage served up as biography by other sons of famous fathers. It was, after all, a study in failure rather than success. The writing of the biography marked the point at which Churchill at last outgrew his fatherÂ’s memory” (Grant, 47). Illustrated with numerous full-page plates and manuscript facsimiles. Cohen A17.1. Woods A8a. Langworth, 68-71. Occasional scattered light foxing to interiors. Fine condition.

        ALS Signed to Cecil Harmsworth (1869-1948). With envelope addressed in Churchill's hand.

      - Single sheet of Colonial Office notepaper, written whilst a member of the Liberal cabinet, beginning "Dear Mr. Harmsworth, I have already gone into Mr Podwin's case at the request of Mr George Wyndham", and explaining that he will gladly help him find a post. Dated 'March 24th', sadly without the year but research narrows this to 1906-1908; from December 1905-April 1908 Churchill served as Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies, dealing mainly with South Africa after the Boer War, in particular settling the Transvaal Constitution which was accepted by Parliament in 1907. This headed notepaper clearly refers to this period; although Churchill returned as Colonial Secretary from 1921-2, his friend George Wyndham had died in 1913 and would therefore not have been a key subject in this letter. Conservative MP George Wyndham (1863-1913), a beneficiary of Cecil Rhodes, was also a firm ally of the young Winston Churchill. Both had served as British Army officers in the Sudan and both were politically involved with South Africa. Furthermore Wyndham was Chief Secretary for Ireland (1900-1905); Churchill played a prominent role in Irish policy at this time and was later a key figure in the founding of the Irish Free State (Republic of Ireland). The Liberal MP Cecil Harmsworth (1869-1948) was elected to the Commons in February 1906 and later served as Deputy Foreign Secretary. He was also chairman of Associated Newspapers and both his son and grandson (as Viscounts Rothermere) were powerful Fleet Street press magnates. This letter therefore touches on three key areas which defined the young Churchill's early parliamentary career; South Africa, The Anglo-Irish treaty and 'crossing the floor' party politics.

        Nature of Capital and Income

      1906. Signed. FISHER, Irving. The Nature of Capital and Income. New York and London: Macmillan, 1927. Thick octavo, original green cloth. $3800.Scarce 1927 edition of this pioneering work on the growth of wealth, by “the United StatesÂ’ greatest scientific economist” (Niehans, 279), signed by Irving Fisher on the title page.Considered ""the father of monetary economics,"" Irving Fisher, during a mountain-climb in the Alps, encountered a cascade of water into a pool, which clicked with him as a metaphor for the growth of wealth—a distinction he used in this work to clarify several prevailing economic notions regarding capital and income. ""He defined capital as a stock of wealth at one point in time, analogous to a stock of water in a poolÂ… Out of current income would come a [cascade] of savings which adds to our stock of wealth"" (Pressman, 92-93). With his Nature of Capital and Income, ""Fisher became the first economist to develop a theory of capital (including human capital) on an actuarial and accounting basisÂ… He demonstrated convincingly that in economics only the future counts, and that past costs have no direct relevance to value. In point of fact, his research resulted in rigorous definition of the bases on which it is possible to ground a valid theory of interest"" (IESS). Preceded by the 1906 first edition and the 1923 edition. Text very fresh, front inner paper hinge expertly reinforced, only lightest edge-wear to cloth, spine a bit toned. A near-fine copy, scarce signed.
