        Photograph Album Documenting the Aftermath of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake

      1906. Collection of approximately 99 original black-and-white photographs showing the destruction caused by the earthquake and resulting fires, and the subsequent clean-up and reconstruction efforts, most pages with hand-written captions, with specific sites depicted including the Ferry Building, Market Street, burning buildings, refugee camps, City Hall, the Hearst Building, the Palace Hotel, gutted churches, rubble, and relocated shops, some photos with signature for R.J. Waters & Co. and caption within the plate, label affixed to inside front cover for Waters Company, San Francisco. Photos overall in very good condition. Various sizes to 8" x 10". Photos affixed to album leaves with photo corners and small dots of glue, many photos already loose, all pages detached from album. Oblong 4to. Cloth album. San Francisco (R.J. 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.

Octavo booklet, 46 pp. very good in original printed pink wrappers, chipped; preserved in splendid full crushed morocco bookform box by Sangorski lined with moiré silk, with gilt lettering. Uncommon booklet in remarkable original condition, describing a journey through the pastoral estates of the west coast of South Australia, with notices of the settlements at Piednippie, Colton, Elliston, Talia, Petina Well, Yandra and Port Lincoln. The author writes in an attractive and offhand style, as might be expected considering that this booklet was reprinted from the Adelaide Register in an effort to bolster public confidence in the potential of the region for future grazing investment. It includes several photo plates, including group portraits of the pioneer selectors, west coast pastoralists in 1888, and local Aboriginals.

        Signora con stola bianca. ''Mele e Ci Napoli'' Milano, Officine Grafiche Ricordi, 1906 ca.

      1906. Litografia a colori (cm 205x144) formata da 2 fogli uniti. Al centro in grandi caratteri: ''Mele e Ci Napoli'', lungo il margine inferiore: ''Confezioni per signora massimo a buon mercato."Firmata M. Dudovich'' in alto a sinistra. Esemplare in perfetto stato di conservazione, intelato. Marcello Dudovich, inizia nel 1906, assieme agli altri cartellonisti che collaborano con le Officine Grafiche Ricordi, a lavorare per le campagne pubblicitarie promosse da un'importante ditta, i Grandi Magazzini Italiani di Emiddio e Alfonso Mele, con sede a Napoli. I Magazzini "Mele" aprirono al pubblico napoletano nel 1889. I fratelli Mele furono antesignani nella committenza pubblicitaria, crearono un progetto promozionale articolato e senza confronti per quei tempi, proponendo uno stile di vita aristocratico con uno sguardo nostalgico alla Belle Epoque ma con prodotti alla portata di tutti. "Massimo buon mercato" era lo slogan che accompagnava i cartelloni pubblicitari destinati alla media borghesia. I manifesti Mele vennero realizzati da diversi artisti: Achille Beltrame, P. L. Caldanzano, Leonetto Cappiello, S. De Stefano, Marcello Dudovich, Franz Laskoff, Gian Emilio Malerba, A. L. Mauzan, A. Mazza, Leopoldo Metlicovitz, E. Sacchetti, A. Terzi, Aleardo Villa. "La committenza Mele, intervenuta quasi in via sperimentale a mettere a punto la nuova politica culturale Ricordi e le concrete capacità del potenziale tecnico della ditta, documenta il periodo formativo della grafica pubblicitaria come nessun'altra committenza; ciò, sia in virtù del fatto che si svolse senza interruzioni per un arco di tempo di circa venticinque anni, a differenza di altre committenze più brevi ed episodiche. Infatti la Ricordi sostenne, coi suoi cartellonisti, alcune campagne pubblicitarie dei Magazzini Mele fin dal 1889, ma senza averne l'esclusiva in quanto anche altri stabilimenti - non tutti all'avanguardia - parteciparono all'iniziativa. Scorrendo la produzione cartellonistica Mele in ordine cronologico, si osserva che alcune importanti modifiche del manifesto muovono proprio a partire dal 1906: esse sono in relazione soprattutto a Marcello Dudovich che inizia da quell'anno un'intensa attività di produzione per la ditta di Napoli. Dudovich elaborerà assieme ad altri cartellonisti, pittori e illustratori le istruzioni ricevute dalla ditta, affinché la trasmissione del messaggio pubblicitario sia il più possibile coerente ed efficace. I manifesti Mele vengono realizzati da diverse mani e con diverse interpretazioni stilistiche, ma nell'unica cifra imposta dalla committenza, tesa cioè ad enfatizzare i capi d'abbigliamento e l'atmosfera che questi riescono a creare attorno. La ditta Mele cerca un proprio specifico segno d'identità da affidare alla collettività, propone uno stile di vita aristocratico, quasi irraggiungibile e già velato di tinte nostalgiche per una belle époque in declino. I prodotti, potenzialmente interclassisti, sebbene si prospettino come alla portata di qualunque tasca - "massimo buon mercato" è infatti lo slogan che accompagna la quasi totalità dei cartelloni pubblicitari "Mele" - sono però destinati alla media borghesia. Per Dudovich il manifesto è definito e risolto sempre in un unicum armonico.

        Zur Theorie der Lichterzeugung und Lichtabsorption. WITH: Das Prinzip von der Erhaltung der Schwerpunktsbewgung und die Tragheit der Energie

      Leipzig: Barth, 1906. FIRST EDITION of two important Einstein papers, including one of the two papers on his Noble Prize winning work on the photoelectric effect. On the Theory of Light Production and Light Absorption: A continuation and development of Einstein's revolutionary first paper in 1905 on the photoelectric effect ("On a Heuristic Point of View about the Creation and Conversion of Light")."In a companion paper [to "On a Heuristic Point..."], published in 1906, Einstein exposed appeal to the quantum as fundamentally counter to the ethos of classical physics: 'the theoretical bases on which Planck's radiation theory rests are different from those of Maxwell's theory'. Planck had not initially intended to quantify light-radiation itself, but Einstein demonstrated that his own 'light-quantum hypothesis' was implicit in Planck's earlier work. In viewing radiation not as a continuous wave, but as composed of small packets of energy (later called photons), Einstein was again shaking the foundations of classical physics" (Honner, The Description of Nature, 31). Particle Physics: One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Corpuscular-wave dualism for photons. Explanation of the photoelectric effect using the quantum hypothesis of Planck. Nobel prize to A. Einstein awarded in 1921 'for services to Theoretical Physics, and especially of he law of the photoelectric effect.'" Weil *12.The Principle of Conservation of Motion of the Center of Gravity and the Inertia of Energy: Einstein's further development of E=mc2. Einstein boldly uses his relationship to insist that the conservation of mass is a special case of the conservation of energy and broadens the law to include not only mechanical, but electromagnetic processes as well. Weil 13.IN: Annalen der Physik, Vol. 20, pp. 199-206; 627-633. Leipzig: Barth, 1906. Octavo, modern full green morocco. Rippling to the first few leaves of volume (not affecting Einstein papers). Provenance: with library stamp on series title from the prestigious Gmelin Institute (after 1996, part of the Max Planck Institute). Very handsomely bound. Fine.

        The Complete Works of Jane Austen. In 12 volumes: Sense and Sensibility; Pride and Prejudice; Emma; Mansfield Park; Northanger Abbey; Persuasion; Lady Susan; The Watsons; Letters

      Colonial Press Company, Boston and New York - A scarce printing of Jane Austen's works in 12 volumes, undated but cited as 1906, with 30 colour plates by H M and C E Brock, 6 further illustrations and a folding facsimile autograph letter. In matching blue cloth bindings with paper labels which state that this edition is the 'Beacon Edition'. Top page edges gilt; remainder untrimmed. It uses some of the Brock plates from an earlier J M Dent/E P Dutton edition first published in 1898, and the prefaces are by Brimley Johnson, who edited that edition. However it also has a substantial introductory piece by Prof. William Lyon Phelps, which appears in the Frank S Holby publications. A fairly large type-face is used - reminiscent of the Winchester Edition. Book size 20 x 14.5 cms. The blue cloth bindings are generally sound and clean with the occasional light mark. There is some wear to the top and bottom of the spines - the degree of wear varies: Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey were clearly most read and have the greatest binding wear. Corners lightly bumped. Internally contents very bright and clean - some volumes are still partly unopened. Some of the pages have quite frayed edges from opening, which has occasionally resulted in some margin (but not text) loss. Each of the novels has a colour frontispiece and 2 further Brock plates per volume - these are tissue-guarded and all the volumes have a title page in red and black and additional half titles were appropriate. Sense and Sensibility Vol I: dedication; bibliography; Jane Austen by William Lyon Phelps; half title; text pp 1-225. Small repaired paper flaw in top margin p 55. Vol II: pp 1-302 - some loss to side margin of p75. Pride and Prejudice Vol I: preface; text pp 3-283. Some very crinkled/nibbled page edges. Vol II: text 3-299. Volume a little shaken and outline of pressed flower in gutter margins of pp 236/7. Emma Vol I: dedication; preface; text 1-399. Some pages unopened. Vol II: 359pp mostly unopened. Mansfield Park Vol I: preface; text 338pp largely unopened. Vol II: 347 pp, largely unopened, one tissue guard detached, side margin p219 with loss and archive tape repair, p 299 slight loss to side margin. Persuasion: preface, text 362pp. Northanger Abbey: advert by 'authoress'; preface; text 338pp. Part unopened. Lady Susan, The Watsons and Letters Vol I: frontispiece portrait of Jane Austen; title page; preface; colour plate - Old Manor House, Steventon; half title Lady Susan and text 107pp; half title The Watsons, preface and text to p195; half title The Letters; introduction by Brabourne; black and white portrait; text to p393. Many pages unopened, corner of p205 re-attached (no text affected), slight split at rear endpaper joint. The Letters Vol II: portrait frontispiece; title page; colour plate Vestibule of 4 Sydney Place, Bath; foldout facsimile autograph letter; text, black and white portrait and appendices 393pp. Please enquire if you would like to see more images to further assess condition.

        The Achehnese.

      Leyden: Late E. J. Brill,, 1906. Translated by the late A. W. S. O'Sullivan. With an index by R. J. Wilkinson. 2 volumes, large octavo. Original dark green cloth, gilt lettered spines and front covers, ornamental panels on covers, drab grey endpapers. Half-tone frontispieces, half-tone and line illustrations throughout (two coloured folding maps of Acheh and plan of a dwelling house at the end on volume I). Booklabels of Dr A. O. Kouwenhoven. One or two very small white marks to back cover of volume II otherwise in exemplary condition. First edition in English of this important work on Aceh, "in the period of its greatest power [16th and 17th-centuries]... the most important Muhammadan state in Sumatra" (Brill, Encyclopaedia of Islam, VII p. 552). The author, Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje (1857-1936), was "a pioneer in the scientific study of Islam. While serving as a lecturer at the University of Leiden (1880?89), [he] visited Arabia (1884?85), stopping at Mecca. His classic work Mekka, 2 vol. (1888?89), reconstructs the history of the holy city and sheds light on the origins of Islam, early traditions and practices, and the first Islamic communities. The second volume, translated into English as Mekka in the Latter Part of the 19th Century (1931), contains many details of daily life in Islamic culture and deals with the Indonesian Muslim colony at Mecca. From 1890 to 1906 Snouck Hurgronje was professor of Arabic at Batavia, Java, and, as a government adviser, he originated and developed a Dutch colonial policy toward Islam that prevailed until the termination of Dutch rule in Indonesia in 1942. Though he was tolerant of Islamic religious life, his policy as a colonial official was to repress Islamic political agitation. His De Atjèhers, 2 vol. (1893?94; The Achenese), an ethnographic account of the people of northern Sumatra, became a standard reference work. Though Snouck Hurgronje remained a colonial adviser until 1933, he returned in 1906 to the Netherlands, where he was professor of Arabic and Islamic institutions at the University of Leiden until his death. He wrote extensively on a number of Islamic topics" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online). Hurgronje's study was produced against the backdrop of the long-running Aceh War (1873-1904), between the Netherlands and the forces of the Sultanate of Aceh, in which "Dutch forces became involved in a prolonged guerrilla war in the countryside. This war, however, drained the colonial treasury, and public opinion in the Netherlands became increasingly critical of the colonial administration. The administration later realised that their ignorance of the region had led them to commit serious errors. Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje, professor of Islamic studies at the University of Leyden (Leiden), was invited to undertake a thorough study of Aceh and published a book in 1893?94 on the Acehnese" (ibid). A particularly attractive set - bright and sharp-cornered - of this significant work.

Ad 1: second edition of an important standard work, containing portraits and biographies of Dutch painters of the 17th century.

        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). 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.

This is the first book by the Ashendene Press with marginal notes printed in red. Featuring a designer binding by Franklin Mowery of black morocco blind-tooled with an intersecting and slightly shifting pattern of deep rules.

The abstract design is capped by the title, formed from burgundy morocco onlays shaped in Uncial letterforms. Binder's initials and date gilt-stamped to rear turn-in. Soft black suede doublures complete the design. Mowery is Head of Conservation at the Folger Shakespeare Library and has maintained a private practice as a designer bookbinder and conservator for more than thirty years.
