        Theodore Roosevelt

      c. 1907-1909. U.S. Navy Officer’s Service (Undress) Belt, size 38, with original 7.25” x 5.25” x 2.75” box accompanied by two printed calling cards, each approximately 3” x 1.5”, one engraved <I>“Carlos Alfonso Gardiner / Lieutenant United States Navy,”</I> the other, <I>“Carlos Alfonso Gardiner / Lieutenant-Commander / United States Navy / Retired.”</I> The size <I>“38,”</I> noted on the box, has been penned in red ink on the inside of the 2” diameter naval belt buckle. Stamped on the box cover is <I>“W.H. Weed, Jr. / Comdr. U.S.N.R.”</I> Commander Walter H. Weed, Jr. (1900-1975) was a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis as was Lieutenant Commander Gardiner.<br /><br />The “Great White Fleet” sent around the world by President Theodore Roosevelt from December 16, 1907 to February 22, 1909 consisted of 16 new battleships of the Atlantic Fleet. Launched on April 6, 1904, the USS “Virginia” was commissioned on May 7, 1906. Lieutenant Carlos Alfonso Gardiner (1879-1943) was naval engineer on the “Virginia” as it circumnavigated the globe. The battleships were painted white except for gilded scrollwork on their bows. The 14-month long voyage was a grand pageant of American sea power. The squadrons were manned by 14,000 sailors, covered some 43,000 miles, and made 20 port calls on six continents. After resigning his commission in 1912 with the rank of Lieutenant Commander, Carlos Alfonso Gardiner became an expert on the international maritime trade, focusing on South America.<br />

        A Horse's Tale - with signed letter from Twain on horses!

      Harper and Brothers, New York 1907 - First edition, 1907, with signed letter on mourning stationary, from 1904, appropriately on the subject of horses! Rebound in full deep red morocco gilt, with bookplate of well known bibliophile George Zabriskie and an inscription on that bookplate to his friend Georgia Hexter (often the recipient of his presents). Very good. The letter, from Florence dated June 19, 1904, reads -- without salutation -- 'In case neither General Langdon, nor Mr. Rogers, nor Mr. Melville has sent any one to the dock, this note is to explain that the bearer of it is UGO PIERMONTINI a man of good character & good habits, whom I have sent over in charge of two gray mares [crossed out: '& a pair of side saddles']. The animals [crossed out: '& the saddles'] have been in use several months, & belong to my daughters. I paid $140 for one of the horses & $250 for the other. [Crossed out: 'I do not remember what the saddles cost -- $30 or $40 apiece I think'] Very truly, Mark Twain / the saddles are coming with _me_'. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Chamber Music

      London: Elkin Mathews,, 1907. Small octavo. Original green cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt. Illustrated title page. Spine faded, minor rubbing to extremities, faint mark to fore edge of front free endpaper, half-title, title page and A3, short closed tears to lower outer corners of pp. B4-C3, light foxing to endpapers; a very good, extremely bright copy. First edition, first impression, first issue, with laid paper endpapers with horizontal chain lines and correctly centred text of signature C. Elkin Mathews printed 509 copies of Chamber Music, Joyce's first commercially published work, and pessimistically bound up only a small proportion of the sheets. Bernard Quaritch Ltd argued that only "fifty or a hundred" copies of the first variant were bound in 1907 (New Series: Bulletin 19, 1984). In the wake of Joyce's later fame the remainder sheets were reissued in darker green cloth. This true first issue is uncommon.

        ASIA - CHINA] [Album of 206 Gelatin Silver Photographs of China Taken by a British Expat Showing Tsingtau (Qingdao), Kuling (Lianxi), Laushan (Laoshan), Hankow (Wuhan), Wuchang & Shanghai]

      - 1907-1911. Oblong Folio (31x42cm). 20 thick card stock album leaves pp. With 206 gelatin silver photographs (most 12x17cm and slightly smaller and with three panoramas (Kuling & Shanghai) 8.5x30cm, mounted recto and verso, many with manuscript black ink captions in English on mounts. Original full pebbled cloth album. Overall album is in very good condition with very good strong photos. The interesting strong vernacular images in this album taken by an British expat show views in Tsingtau (Qingdao), Kuling (Lianxi), Laushan (Laoshan), Hankow (Wuhan), Wuchang & Shanghai. ''This album provides a record of a British expatriate's life and travels in China at the beginning of the 20th century. The photographer would appear to have worked for a trading company in Hankow, part of present-day Wuhan. The album starts with images of Tsingtau (Qingdao) showing Germanstyle residential and civic buildings, the Tsingtau races of 1907, views of a fire at the godowns of a European company (A.P. & Co.); these are followed by images of Europeans relaxing and bathing at Kuling in Jiangxi province and the Wuchang lakes plus a series of views of Laushan (Laoshan), the hilly area outside Qingdao. There are then 11 photographs of employees of A.P. & Co. Celebrating Christmas in Hankow in 1908. A few photographs represent the expatriate resort of Kuling in 1909 and scenes on the Yangtze near Nanjing. Thereafter are all views of buildings, the river and boats taken in Hankow, followed by a number of photographs of people and places including a couple of the Shanghai races of 1911. The following photographs feature Chinese people, foreigners enjoying a river trip near Shanghai, then a lively series of photographs of races and an expatriate Gymkhana in Hankow in 1910, including ladies in full Edwardian dress and large hats engaged in a race, and a photograph of ladies in rickshaws ready to be pulled by expatriates (in a race?). These are followed by photographs of tennis, and 3 panorama-style photographs of Shanghai, including one just down river of Soochow Creek and a view of the creek. The final page ranges from Loochow Pagoda to Ichang, the Temple of Heaven in in Beijing, Chinese execution and the Tientsin Fire bell. The album is of considerable merit in that the majority of the photographs are of places and scenes other than the more 'usual sights of Beijing and Shanghai' (Western Travellers in China).

        THE WRITINGS OF MARK TWAIN AUTOGRAPH EDITION

      American Publishing Co., Hartford 1907 - Twenty-five volumes. Octavo. Publisher's three quarter olive brown morocco and marbled boards, raised bands, lettered in gilt, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Portraits and plates. A number of the spines are characteristically sun-faded to lighter brown, occasional rubbing to raised bands and toes of a few spines, but a very good or better set, with none of the deterioration to the joints so common to this binding. The esteemed "Autograph Edition," limited to 512 numbered sets, signed by Clemens in the first volume: "S.L. Clemens / (Mark Twain)." Eighteen of the plates are signed by their respective artist, including Peter Newell, A.B. Frost, Charles N. Flagg, E.W. Kemble, Karl Gerhardt, Dan Beard, et al. Charles Dudley Warner signed the limitation page to volume 10 (THE GILDED AGE), and Brander Matthews signed at the end of his critical essay in volume one, as usual. This edition was published as a subscription set in a hierarchy of bindings, and sets were occasionally customized for the purchaser by the inclusion of related manuscript leaves, letters and other inserts. Such is the case with this set, and it is accompanied by a two page a.l.s. from Walter Bliss, 23 December 1905, to the original owner, detailing the arrangements made for Christmas Day delivery, and pointing out the location of the extra material (volumes I, V, VI, IX and X), and mentioning some extra loose plates, which are no longer present. In volume one are inserted a) a one page a.l.s. from Clemens, Riverdale on Hudson, 5 March 1902, to "Dear Bliss," written prior to departure for travels and trying to settle some publishing matters pertaining to a deal with Colliers and cancellation of another option, signed "S.L. Clemens," ca. fifty words; and b) a leaf from the autograph manuscript of THE GILDED AGE, in Clemens' hand, numbered '22' at the top margin, and beginning ".here, on the railroad & the steamboat, & say 'this' one little spot shall not be touched - this hovel shall be sacred .," ca. 125 words. Volume V contains an extra limitation leaf from the "Author's Signed Edition" of FOLLOWING THE EQUATOR, unnumbered, but signed both as Twain and as Clemens. Volume VI includes the facsimile printing of the letter by Clemens commenting on the frontis photogravure (the image of Clemens transposed into a horse and steer drawn cart) for that special edition. Volume XI includes a) another leaf from the manuscript of THE GILDED AGE in Clemens's hand, with corrections and revisions, ca 125 words, numbered '60' in the top margin, and beginning: "'But how should I know whether they were boys or girls?'," and b) a leaf from the manuscript in Warner's hand, numbered '820' in the upper margin, beginning: "'Daft is a little strong ., " ca 150 words. Volume XI contains a third leaf in Clemens's hand from the manuscript of THE GILDED AGE, numbered '421' then altered to '1000' in the upper margin, heavily revised, with significant deletions and insertions, ca. 150 words. While sets with a single Clemens leaf (often coupled with a Warner leaf) from the manuscript of THE GILDED AGE are not uncommon, sets with multiple Clemens leaves are uncommon, and those with multiple leaves plus a letter are even more exceptional. Three of the late volumes coincided with the publication of their respective public trade editions. BAL 3456.

        What Might Have Been: The Story of a Social War

      London: John Murray, 1907 First edition, first printing of an important early dystopian novel. Very good in very good scarce jacket(spine and margins darkened, some chipping to ends and corners, a bit of edge wear, short tear at spine foot, 1x2" piece missing from lower corner of front panel, splitting along length of front flap fold with three small areas still attached). Those issues notwithstanding, the jacket is integral, desirable, and rarely seen - this copy the only one at auction since its publication. Ten other copies in libraries around the country and as always these include ones without a jacket and in horrific condition - and also fine copies in fine jackets(unlikely...).We live in troubling times - a few years of indifference, blind greed, and alternative facts away from slipping into a deeper Orwellian reality. This distilment is apropos - "Nineteen Eighty-Four is about a government that is gaslighting a nation, and a nation that shrugs when confronted with gaslighting."(Chris Taylor) Dystopia is a word that is permeating our lives and with good reason. Bramah's book is a novel describing the overthrow of a democratic British government, along with some cool future tech dreams like flying trains. It's not a great story on its own, but it has the important distinction of being an influential work. Orwell credited this book as an inspiration for Nineteen Eighty-Four. While Bramah won't achieve the heights of Orwell, he deserves recognition and remembrance for influencing one of the 20th century's most consequential writers.

        ACROSS WIDEST AFRICA: An Account of the Country and People of Eastern, Central and Western Africa as Seen During a Twelve Month's Journey From Djibuti to Cape Verde

      London: Hurst and Blackett, 1907. 2 volumes. First edition. With 160 illustrations from photographs and a large color folding map at rear. Thick 8vo, publisher's original navy blue cloth gilt lettered and ruled on the spines and covers. xv, 396, [4 ads]; xii, 511, [1 ad] pp. A very pleasing, well preserved and handsome set, the cloth clean and very solid, quite fresh but for the lightest evidence of shelving, internally solid and clean, the plates and folding map in excellent order. SCARCE. This is the account of the first journey taken across Africa at its widest point with "pleasure as its sole object," covering over 8,500 miles in a space of 364 days. Like much of Savage-Landor's work, these two volumes have since become fixtures in any collection of Africana. They are replete with photographs and descriptions of the circumstances of Africa at the turn of the century. Savage-Landor is known not only for his writings of his African travels, but also his accounts of Tibet, China, South America, Europe, and numerous points in between. A desirable set of this Africana classic.

Original cloth spine and front board bound in at the back. A little occasional foxing but overall a very attractive copy in a beautiful fine binding. The Ingoldsby Legends is a collection of myths, legends, ghost stories and poetry written supposedly by Thomas Ingoldsby of Tappington Manor, actually a pen-name of an English clergyman named Richard Harris Barham. Included are: The Spectre of Tappington; The Hand of Glory; The Witches' Frolic; The Jackdaw of Rheims; The Lay of St. Cuthbert; or the Devil's Dinner-Party: Raising the Devil: A Legend of Cornelius Agrippa; The Wedding-Day; or, The Buccaneer's Curse: A Family Legend and many many others. Rackham's illustrated edition is here revised and largely redrawn from the original 1898 edition, so that "greater prominence could be given to the illustrations by better and larger reproductions, including a greater number of illustrations in colour" (Rackham's Prefatory Note).

He was one one of the most influential thinkers of the early-20th-century "New Age" philosophy of New Thought, which encouraged its adherents to learn the secrets of mind over matter. They did so via Atkinson's instruction his lessons on: mental magic, desire and will, personal magnetism, mind-power in action, four kinds of suggestion. Fowler hardback with no DJ.

        [ASIA - CHINA] [Album of 206 Gelatin Silver Photographs of China Taken by a British Expat Showing Tsingtau (Qingdao), Kuling (Lianxi), Laushan (Laoshan), Hankow (Wuhan), Wuchang & Shanghai]

      1907-1911. Oblong Folio (31x42cm). 20 thick card stock album leaves pp. With 206 gelatin silver photographs (most 12x17cm and slightly smaller and with three panoramas (Kuling & Shanghai) 8.5x30cm, mounted recto and verso, many with manuscript black ink captions in English on mounts. Original full pebbled cloth album. Overall album is in very good condition with very good strong photos. The interesting strong vernacular images in this album taken by an British expat show views in Tsingtau (Qingdao), Kuling (Lianxi), Laushan (Laoshan), Hankow (Wuhan), Wuchang & Shanghai. ''This album provides a record of a British expatriate's life and travels in China at the beginning of the 20th century. The photographer would appear to have worked for a trading company in Hankow, part of present-day Wuhan. The album starts with images of Tsingtau (Qingdao) showing Germanstyle residential and civic buildings, the Tsingtau races of 1907, views of a fire at the godowns of a European company (A.P. & Co.); these are followed by images of Europeans relaxing and bathing at Kuling in Jiangxi province and the Wuchang lakes plus a series of views of Laushan (Laoshan), the hilly area outside Qingdao. There are then 11 photographs of employees of A.P. & Co. Celebrating Christmas in Hankow in 1908. A few photographs represent the expatriate resort of Kuling in 1909 and scenes on the Yangtze near Nanjing. Thereafter are all views of buildings, the river and boats taken in Hankow, followed by a number of photographs of people and places including a couple of the Shanghai races of 1911. The following photographs feature Chinese people, foreigners enjoying a river trip near Shanghai, then a lively series of photographs of races and an expatriate Gymkhana in Hankow in 1910, including ladies in full Edwardian dress and large hats engaged in a race, and a photograph of ladies in rickshaws ready to be pulled by expatriates (in a race?). These are followed by photographs of tennis, and 3 panorama-style photographs of Shanghai, including one just down river of Soochow Creek and a view of the creek. The final page ranges from Loochow Pagoda to Ichang, the Temple of Heaven in in Beijing, Chinese execution and the Tientsin Fire bell. The album is of considerable merit in that the majority of the photographs are of places and scenes other than the more 'usual sights of Beijing and Shanghai' (Western Travellers in China).

Front board slightly weakened. Otherwise in near Fine condition with only minor signs of wear. Bookplate to pastedown. Spine darkened. The House of Stuart, originally Stewart and, in Gaelic, Stiùbhart, was a European royal house that originated in Scotland. The dynasty's patrilineal Breton ancestors had held the office of High Steward of Scotland since the 12th century, after arriving by way of Norman England. The royal Stewart line was founded by Robert II, and they were Kings and Queens of Scots from the late 14th century until the union with England in 1707. Mary, Queen of Scots, was brought up in France, where she adopted the French spelling of the name, Stuart. Her son, James VI of Scotland, inherited the thrones of England and Ireland upon the death of Elizabeth I in 1603. Except for the period of the Commonwealth, 1649&#150;1660, the Stuarts were monarchs of the British Isles and its growing empire, until the death of Queen Anne in 1714.[note 3] In total, nine Stewart/Stuart monarchs ruled Scotland alone from 1371 until 1603. James VI of Scotland then inherited the realms of Elizabeth I of England, becoming James I of England and Ireland in the Union of the Crowns. Following the Glorious Revolution in 1688, two Stuart queens ruled the isles: Mary II and Anne. Both were the Protestant daughters of James VII and II by his first wife. Their father had converted to Catholicism and his new wife gave birth to a son in 1688, who would be brought up a Roman Catholic and would precede his half-sisters; so James was deposed by Parliament in 1689, in favour of his daughters. But neither had any children who survived to adulthood, so under the terms of the Act of Settlement 1701 and the Act of Security 1704, the crown passed to the House of Hanover on the death of Queen Anne in 1714. During the reign of the Stuarts, Scotland developed from a relatively poor and feudal country into a prosperous, modern and centralised state. They ruled during the transitive period in European history between the Middle Ages, via the Renaissance, to the midpoint of the Early modern period. Monarchs such as James IV were known for sponsoring exponents of the Northern Renaissance such as the poet Robert Henryson, among others. After the Stuarts reigned over all of Great Britain, the arts and sciences continued to develop; William Shakespeare wrote many of his best known plays during the Jacobean era, while institutions such as the Royal Society and the Royal Mail were established during the reign of Charles II.
