        Das Podium. Künstlergesten aus dem Concertsaal. Lithographiert von Eugen Spiro.

      Berlin: 1906. Portfolio of 37 lithographic portraits measuring 320 x 290 mm., each in folding protective mount, original printed folding card case with the titling leaf. Beautiful collection of lithographic portraits of famous European singers and musicians of the turn of the century, with each plate individually signed by the artist. Eugen Spiro was born in Breslau in 1874 and worked as a landscape and portrait artist in Germany and later the United States. His portraits of prominent creative and scientific personalities won him lasting acclaim in both continents. After a spell in Paris Spiro returned to Germany in 1914 and rose to prominence amongst the fashionable Berlin art scene; he served as chairman of the Berlin Secession and was appointed Professor of the Berlin Academy of Arts. On account of his Jewish ancestry, Spiro was prohibited from working by the ascendant Third Reich from 1933 onwards. He finally emigrated to the United States with his family in 1941 and although 67 years of age upon arrival, Spiro continued to work and exhibit up until decease in 1972 at the age of 98.The portfolio was originally issued with 34 plates in an edition of 55 copies; this copy is an example of the later expanded edition with an additional 3 plates (bringing the total to 37) and limited to 30 numbered copies. Some wear and staining of the folding card case; internally in very good order with all portraits well preserved.

        Lithograph inscribed

      1906. Signed. ROOSEVELT, Theodore. Lithograph inscribed. Boston: Charles E. Goodspeed, 1905. Single sheet, measuring approximately 18 by 24 inches. $8500.Exceptionally large, handsome bust-length etching of Teddy Roosevelt, number 91 of an unknown limitation signed by artist Sidney L. Smith, inscribed below the image to Boy Scout benefactor Charles D. Hart: ""To Dr: Charles D. Hart with the regards of Theodore Roosevelt. April 8th 1906.""This striking portrait of Teddy Roosevelt was originally etched by Sidney L. Smith and bears Smith's pencil signature in addition to Roosevelt's inscription. Notably, Smith was a preferred artist of the Roosevelt family and also designed Mrs. Roosevelt's personal bookplates (Cheney, et al., The Bookplate Booklet, 9). The inscribee, Charles D. Hart, was a Philadelphia physician. However, he was best known for the important contributions he made to the Boy Scouts. Hart was the President of the Philadelphia Council and the changes he made locally resonated nationally. He provided an endowment that included the property for the Hart Scout Reservation (Camp Hart), now part of the Musser Scout Reservation in Marlborough Township, Pennsylvania. Hart also formed the first troop of blind Boy Scouts, changing the public's idea of what scouts could be. Roosevelt was involved in the outdoor activities his entire life. He eventually became an honorary vice president of the Boy Scouts, though he was often at the same events as Hart prior to that, including ones recognizing the work of the Boy Scouts.Tiny corner repair not affecting image. A beautiful inscribed item.

        The Cricket on the Hearth. A Tale of Home. With illustrations by C. E. Brock.

      London: J. M. Dent, 1906 - Octavo (178 x 113 mm). Contemporary art nouveau-style vellucent binding by Cedric Chivers of Bath, hand-painted crest design of holly branches to front board and spine, the former framed within mother-of-pearl onlay, title to front board and spine in red on a light green background, front board elaborately tooled in gilt, single gilt fillet to rear board, bevelled edges, top edge gilt, double gilt fillet to turn-ins with fleuron cornerpieces. With 1930s prize label to front pastedown. Spine a little darkened, small glue residue to front free endpaper, light spotting to endleaves. An excellent copy. Illustrated title page, colour frontispiece and 7 other plates, black and white illustrations in the text. A fine vellucent binding by Cedric Chivers, delicately embellished with mother-of-pearl. The vellucent technique was developed by Cedric Chivers in the early 1900s. In contrast to the earlier method used by Edwards of Halifax, the painting was not done on the underside of the transparent vellum, but on paper which was attached to the binding and covered with vellum. The surface of the vellum was then tooled in gold, thus enhancing the impressive effect.

        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.

        Triumphs of Francesco Petrarch

      1906. First Edition . (PETRARCH, Francesco). The Triumphs of Francesco Petrarch, Florentine Poet Laureate. Boston: Little Brown and Company, (1906). Small folio, publisher’s full crimson morocco, covers elaborately blind-stamped, raised bands, uncut and unopened. Housed in custom cloth box. $2000.Limited edition in English of Petrarch’s Trionfi, or Triumphs, number 64 of only 200 copies printed, detailing the eternal triumphs of Love, Chastity, Death, Fame, Time, and Eternity, with six fine photo-engraved facsimiles of 15th-century Italian engravings, each illustrating a personified Triumph, and six hand-painted gilt initials.“This excessively rare set of Florentine 15th-century engravings may be taken as typical of the manner in which the art of the age was accustomed to embody the ideas suggested by Petrarch’s famous sequence of poems, the ‘Trionfi.’ No theme, outside the cycles of Old and New Testament story, gave more frequent employment to artists and craftsmen; we find it treated alike in illumination, in tapestry, in the painted decorations of marriage chests and birth trays, in pottery and enamel, in relief sculptures of bronze, marble, or ivory, in engravings whether on metal or on wood… In telling of the successive triumphs of Love, of Chastity, of Death, of Fame, of Time, and of Eternity, Petrarch only in one instance, that of Love, brings before us one of these powers personified and riding, accompanied by attendant figures, on a chariot. But artists almost unanimously, without regard to the text, personify all six powers, mount each on a chariot, and escort its maid with attendant figures, or groups of figures” (Sidney Colvin). Translated by Henry Boyd, with an Introduction by Dr. Guido Biagi of the Royal Medicean Library of Florence. Minor rubs to spine ends. Fine condition, a lovely volume.

        Trees of Great Britain & Ireland

      1906. First Edition . ELWES, Henry John and HENRY, Augustine. The Trees of Great Britain & Ireland. Edinburgh: [R. & R. Clark], 1906-13. Eight volumes (including Index). Tall, thick quarto, contemporary three-quarter dark blue crushed morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut (original front wrappers bound in). $7800.First edition of this comprehensive record of “every species of tree grown outdoors in the British Isles… which have attained a size which justifies their being looked on as timber trees,” with full-page photographs and detailed lithographs of each species— 412 plates altogether. Handsomely bound for Quaritch.From 1900 to 1913, British botanist, naturalist and plant collector Henry Elwes produced his greatest work, The Trees of Great Britain and Ireland, in collaboration with botanist Augustine Henry. “Between them, they described every species of tree then grown outdoors in the British Isles, and recorded the finest specimens then to be seen. Most of these were visited and recorded personally, in which process Elwes wore out two motor cars” (Colesbourne Gardens). While Elwes was busy recording trees, Augustine Henry was in the process of changing careers from botanist to forester. “At a time when industrial forestry was totally undeveloped in the British Isles, he had realized its potential. After two years at the French School of Forestry in Nancy, he headed a new School of Forestry in Oxford in 1905… By the end of his career, he had become a world renowned forestry expert” (Marion Maxwell). His contribution to The Trees of Great Britain and Ireland “was unique insofar as he devised a system of identification based on leaves and twigs and on the position of buds to aid identification even in the absence of fruit and flowers” (Sheila Pim). “The work remains an invaluable source of information on trees and arboriculture” (Colesbourne). Nissen 595. A beautiful set in fine condition, with only sparse scattered foxing, handsomely bound.

        In the Days of the Comet

      1906. First Edition . Signed. WELLS, H.G. In the Days of the Comet. London: MacMillan, 1906. Octavo, original green cloth gilt. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $17,500.First edition, second issue (as always), first state, presentation copy humorously inscribed by H.G. Wells to Richard Gregory, his close friend and scientific advisor, ""To dear old Griggalorums. From H.G.""Wells was a devoted member of the Fabian society and a utopian socialist; his novels often explore potential utopias and dystopias of the future, and how they may be brought about. In the present work, ""the wondrous change in human personality is brought about by the gases in a comet's tail, through which the Earth is fortunate enough to pass,"" a concept that has been adopted by numerous utopian societies in the years since this novel's pubication (Clute & Nicholls, 1314). Second issue, as usual (only one copy of the first issue is known: the British Library copy), first state, with integral title page. Without scarce original dust jacket. Currey, 419. Hammond B10. Inscribed to noted British scientist and Wells' lifelong friend Sir Richard Arman Gregory. In Wells' first work of fiction, he dedicated the work to Gregory as his ""dearest friend."" The two met while students at the Normal School of Science in South Kensington. They jointly authored a textbook, Honours Physiography, in 1891. Reportedly, Gregory was the one person with whom Wells never quarreled. A professor of astronomy, Gregory also possessed expertise in physics, chemistry and other disciplines; he wrote several textbooks and eventually assumed the editorship of the journal Nature, to which Wells frequently contributed. The author often turned to Gregory, and to the experts Gregory contacted on Wells' behalf, for insight and encouragement when writing his famous ""scientific romances."" After Wells' death, Gregory worked to establish the H.G. Wells Memorial to preserve public attention to his friend's body of work. Throughout his life Gregory was a passionate advocate for science—""It is necessary to believe in the holiness of scientific work,"" he once declared—and ""an optimist about man's future"" (Horrabin, in New Scientist, April 11, 1957).Interior fine, only very minor wear to cloth extremities, gilt bright. A nearly fine copy with a great association.

Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens is one of the four major literary works featuring Barrie's widely known character Peter Pan.

        Fine photograph signed by him in western characters and dated by him in Thai numerals (Pan Sukhum, 1862-1938, Pasha, former regent of King Ananda Mahidol)

      1906 - "14.4.6", showing him head and shoulders in uniform with medals and decorations, 8" x 5½", in original wooden frame 14½" x 10½", no place, 14th April King Ananda Mahidol (1925-1946) was the eighth monarch of Thailand from the House of Chakri as Rama VIII. At the time he was recognised as king by the National Assembly in March 1935, he was a nine-year-old boy living in Switzerland. He returned to Thailand in December 1945, but six months later in June 1946, he was found shot dead in his bed. Although at first thought to have been an accident, his death was ruled a murder by medical examiners, and three royal pages were later executed following very irregular trials. The mysterious circumstances surrounding his death have been the subject of much controversy.

Waters & Co.) circa 1906. The 1906 earthquake struck the coast of Northern California at 5:12 am on April 18th, with a magnitude of 7.8. Over 80% of the city of San Francisco was destroyed as a result of the quake and the subsequent fires, with 30 different fires destroying 25,000 buildings across 490 city blocks within three days. An estimated 3,000 people died. Initially only 375 deaths were reported, due in part to hundreds of ignored and unreported fatalities in Chinatown. To this day, it is still the deadliest natural disaster in California's history. Up to 300,000 people were also left homeless out of a total population of 410,000, with some refugee camps remaining open for over two years.
