         Essais optimistes

      Paris, Maloine 1907 - Large 8vo of (6,) III, (1) and 438 pages ; contemporary green half calf (spine insolated). Precious example inscribed by the Nobel prize Metchnikoff to Henri Vallée, a prominent French veterinarian and microbiologist. The Metchnikoff dedications are a little are but the dedication to other important physicians are really unusual. The Essais optimistes are his final thoughts about the foundation of gerontology. "In a series of books and lectures between 1903 and 1910 Metchnikoff developed his thoughts on the prolongation of life. He stressed proper hygienic and dietary rules. His idea of orthobiosis, or right living, included careful attention to the flora of the intestinal canal. He believed that intestinal putrefaction was harmful and that the introduction of lactic-acid bacilli, as in yogurt, accounted for the longevity of the Bulgars. He introduced sour milk into his own diet and thought that his health improved. Although his name became associated with a commercial yogurt preparation, he had not endorsed it and realized no profit from it. In his Nature of Man Metchnikoff argued that when diseases have been suppressed and life has been hygienically regulated, death would come only with extreme old age. Death would then be natural, accepted gratefully, and robbed of its terrors." (DSB) Henri Vallée (1874-1947) is an important veterinarian from the early 20th century. He played an important role in the development of new vaccination techniques or his research on Blackleg disease, bovine tuberculosis, equine infectious anemia and especially foot-and-mouth disease. Inside very clean. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Über die Versuche mit Bildtelegraphie zwischen München und Berlin vom 15. April bis 15. mai 1907. Offprint

      1907. Korn, Arthur (1870-1945). Über die Versuche mit Bildtelegraphie zwischen München und Berlin vom 15. April bis 15. mai 1907. Offprint from Elektrotechnischen Zeitschrift 33 (1907). 4pp. Text illustrations. 270 x 192 mm. Original printed wrappers. Lightly creased but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed on the front wrapper: "Überricht vom Verfasser." From the library of physicist Henri Becquerel (1852-1908), with his characteristic gummed docketing label on the front wrapper. First Edition, Offprint Issue. Korn invented telephotography, the first practical method of scanning and transmitting images over electrical wires. His system used a light-sensitive selenium photocell to convert the different tones of an image into a varying electrical current; at the receiving end the transmitted image was reconstituted and recorded on photographic film. Korn invented his device in 1902, but his first machines were impractical as they took as long as 12 hours to transmit images. By 1907, the year he published the present paper, Korn had improved his machines to the point where they could transmit a 13 x 18 cm. photograph in 12 minutes; some of these images and their transmission times are included in this paper. In April 1907 Korn's equipment was put into regular service for transmission of newspaper photographs between Munich and Berlin via telegraph circuits.

         [Photo Album]: British in India 1904-1907

      India, 1907. Very Good. Oblong folio measuring 10.5" x 15". Cream colored stiff boards. Contains 65 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.5" x 2" and 9.5" x 11" with captions. Heavily foxed with tears and chipped corners thus good only with very good photographs with some fading, tears, and abrasions.A photo album kept by a group of British expatriates in India in 1904. Beginning with a Christmas picnic in Muzaffarpur in 1904 the group is pictured wearing pith helmets and lounging on fallen tree branches and enjoying a Christmas feast spread out on a blanket. The picnic was held under the famous Lychee trees of the city. Various candids and snapshots are scattered throughout the album featuring family pets, children playing, and people posing in gardens. One section of photos from 1905 shows the Sonepore Race Meet featuring photos of the Commissioner's Camp, polo ground, and the animals themselves. Beginning in the 1800s the British Raj used Sonepur as the location of an annual race in November. This time had traditionally been used as an animal trade fair by the Hindu locals and some of those customs continued through the transition from fair to race. Landowners in the area set up large carpeted tents for lounging as well as accompanying sleeping and bathing tents for the elite visitors who came to see the anticipated event. For the British population it was a huge social event which not only involved horse races and polo matches but dinners and dancing. The ballroom that was set up for the 1905 event can be seen beyond the polo ground including well-dressed British women meeting with riders and their horses, and images of the encampment.The group went into what is now present day Pakistan on a few occasions. Some photos show a tented encampment at the Khyber Pass and the rice mills of the area. One image of a British man on a horse in captioned, "surveying Khyber," and is accompanied by a photo of a group of turbaned Indian men. Two large photos show the chaos of Bannu City on market day with enormous crowds of people. In Bannu they took photos of the fort, a British church, and the people of the city. A photo from Darjeeling in 1906 shows a wedding party posing for a large group photograph.An interesting look at the British upper class in India during the early 1900s.

         Sister Carrie

      New York: B. W. Dodge & Company, 1907 Second edition, first issue. Signed and inscribed by Dreiser to the front free endpaper. Dark red cloth stamped in gilt. Boards lightly soiled and variously worn, with tips bumped and spine cocked; with photograph of Dreiser mounted onto front pastedown and previous owner's bookplate and ownership inscription to front free endpaper, as well as a brief typed biography of Dreiser tipped in to the rear free endpaper, and ownership inscription to p.557. Overall a very good copy. Sister Carrie tells the story Caroline Meeber, a young woman from Wisconsin who dreams of living a glamorous life in the city. After she moves to Chicago, Carrie becomes the mistress of two wealthy businessmen, through whom she is able to transform herself into a stylish urban woman. After moving to New York City, Carrie is able to fulfil her dreams of becoming a famous actress, but only to realize that material wealth does not elicit true happiness. Although today considered one of Dreier's best novels, Sister Carrie was initially met with mixed critical reviews and was not commercially successful. While the protagonist's lack of Victorian moral values all but ensured that there would be some negative criticism, much of Sister Carrie's initial lack of success was due to the publisher's distaste for the novel; after Dreiser made publication arrangements with Walter Page, his partner Frank Doubleday attempted to cancel the publication, but, being legally prevented from doing so, appeased himself by refusing to market the text properly. . Inscribed by Author. second Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

         AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED ("FATHER"), TO HIS DAUGHTER, CLARA CLEMENS

      New York 1907 - Three pages, in ink, on three panels on folded small octavo sheet of letterhead. Ca. 275 words. Clemens writes to his middle daughter ("O dear Ashcat"), giving an account of his visit, by yacht, to the Jamestown Ter-Centennial Fair: ".we did have a Foggy & gashly time! - after the first day of the fair, which was sunny & bright. The others deserted & fled home by rail; but Broughton & I stuck it out - resolved that we would never trust ourselves to the hated rail. We lay at anchor day after day smothered in white fog, & read, talked, smoked, yawned, gaped & cussed. (This was at Old Point Comfort). Once we went ashore & spent a couple of hours with the officers in Fortress Monroe ." He gives an account of trips ashore, (shopping and being smitten and dumb-struck by "the most beautiful girl you could imagine.") and summarizes the first day of the Fair, including his attendance at the Maryland Governor's reception, where "I took it off his hands. It gave him a rest & he was thankful. I Knew him & his wife before." He informs her he has heard of her success with singing recitals at Elmira and Utica, where she took the "house by storm,." suggesting somewhat off-handedly that "I suppose it is because you are Mark Twain's daughter. But anyway, it is splendid and I am glad." He closes with travel plans, and signs "With lots of love, Father." Folded for mailing, otherwise very good Three pages, in ink, on three panels on folded small octavo sheet of letterhead. Ca. 275 words

         Über die Versuche mit Bildtelegraphie zwischen München und Berlin vom 15. April bis 15. mai 1907. Offprint

      1907 - Korn, Arthur (1870-1945). Über die Versuche mit Bildtelegraphie zwischen München und Berlin vom 15. April bis 15. mai 1907. Offprint from Elektrotechnischen Zeitschrift 33 (1907). 4pp. Text illustrations. 270 x 192 mm. Original printed wrappers. Lightly creased but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed on the front wrapper: "Überricht vom Verfasser." From the library of physicist Henri Becquerel (1852-1908), with his characteristic gummed docketing label on the front wrapper. First Edition, Offprint Issue. Korn invented telephotography, the first practical method of scanning and transmitting images over electrical wires. His system used a light-sensitive selenium photocell to convert the different tones of an image into a varying electrical current; at the receiving end the transmitted image was reconstituted and recorded on photographic film. Korn invented his device in 1902, but his first machines were impractical as they took as long as 12 hours to transmit images. By 1907, the year he published the present paper, Korn had improved his machines to the point where they could transmit a 13 x 18 cm. photograph in 12 minutes; some of these images and their transmission times are included in this paper. In April 1907 Korn's equipment was put into regular service for transmission of newspaper photographs between Munich and Berlin via telegraph circuits.

         Hand Painted Table Screen painted on each side with landscapes, naval figures and ships, the Bay of Naples and Antarctic scenes.

      Ebonised lancet-panelled folding table screen; the three papered panels (each approx 340 mm x210 mm, extended length 640mm) hand-painted both sides in ink with blue wash heightened in white. A charming early 20th century table screen celebrating heroic naval scenes with fine detailed illustrations. The Antarctic scene is an homage to Shackleton and the Nimrod Expedition of 1907-1909. Three of the other panels are illustrated with famous Royal Navy vessels including HMS Gibraltar launched in 1860, HMS Victory with two sailors holding ropes with mourning pennants aflutter in honour of Nelson, and vignettes of HMS Goshawk, Psyche and two sailing craft. Another panel depicts HMS Iron Duke the last of four Audacious-class ironclads built for the Royal Navy in the late 1860s. The rigging of the sailing ships has been carefully and accurately painted suggesting the artist had both familiarity and interest in the Royal Navy of the late 19th century. The two other panels are decorated with vignettes of the British Isles including Lake Windermere, Killarney and Derriquin Castle and a lighthouse in a landscape of tropical coconut palms and ferns. Provenance: Private collection New Zealand.

        A Nuremberg (Nürnberg) Tower. 1907.

      Nuremberg., Germany: 1907 - Original color crayon drawing. Signed, dated and titled in the image. Titled and dated on the support sheet. 9.5 x 6.25 inches image size. Provenance: Part of a portfolio of original works given to the collector Natalie Williams on June 1, 1937 by Wall. Natalie Williams was the sister-in-law of the Texas collector N.C. Matthewson of Marshall, Texas, and both were owners of the Made-Rite Company. She was a patroness of artists and an art donor to Texas A & M University.Bernhardt Wall was born in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 30, 1872. He studied at the Buffalo Art Student's League then moved on to study in New York under Henry Reuterdahl and also apprenticed under William Auerbach-Levy. Wall began a career as a lithographic illustrator in 1889 working primarily as a commercial artist in New York and Buffalo. He soon became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 5,000 comic cards. The year 1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region.Bernhardt Wall was unique in that he not only drew the etchings for his books, but he also printed and bound them. His books are in libraries and universities around the world including the British Museum, Library of Congress, the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Brown Universities. His works were also in the private collections of J. P. Morgan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry C. Frick and Dr. N.C. Mathewson. Wall etched three sitting presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Taft, and Henry Coolidge. Other prominent individuals etched by Wall include Sam Houston, Mark Twain, Thomas A. Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson.Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake. This collection of Wall's scrapbooks, publications, and correspondence was built by collector Natalie Williams of Marshall, Texas.
