        Photo Album - Construction Views of the Panama Canal - Portobelo Heydey

      Panama, 1907. Portobelo in Colón, 1907. Twenty (20) rare photographs taken by an American labourer employed by the Isthmian Canal Commission (ICC) in the construction of the Panama Canal, illustrates the foundational efforts of the project, and features a rare view of the Tivoli Hotel just after its completion. Sepia and gelatin silver print photographs mounted with corners, captioned in manuscript to verso, with exception of only one image which is loosely placed within. Contained in a string-tied oblong 8vo. brown cloth album made in Great Britain, measuring approximately 28 x 19 cm, re-purposed for this worker's collection of views. With only slight variations, photographs measuring approximately 17 x 10 cm. Occasional age-toning and unobtrusive chips to extremities of photographs, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a rare collection of views. Outstanding ingenuity and steadfast collaboration - the first stages of the monumental American undertaking for the Panama Canal is chronicled firsthand in photographs taken by a young American labourer. His captions (verso of photographs) elucidate details of the life and work in Portobelo, a quaint town which benefited economically during this period. While some buildings were erected, this young man was directly involved in the first steps of construction - making of the cart tracks for excavation and removal of dirt from the Culebra Cut, and transport thousands of workers like himself to and fro on the expansive site. He further includes views of the boiler house and salt water pumping station, the dam at Porto Bello, pipelines going up the mountainside, sheltered work stations and machinery, as well as the screened residences built to protect workers from malaria carrying mosquitoes. The Tivoli Hotel is photographed in its year of opening, 1907, before any significant landscaping has been done. By 1908 a walking path flanked with small palm trees would replace the construction rubble seen in the foreground of this view. The first two views are taken from the Porto Bello Quarry, a government owned plant which supplied the crushed stone for the concrete work at Gatun. The amount of stone quarried and crushed in the fiscal year of 1910 was 549,678 cubic yards, at an average cost of $2.6283 per cubic yard including plant charges and division expenses. Virtually a self-sustaining community, a fishing party is photographed in local made dug out canoes on the Rio Gatun. In another photograph a group of men illustrate a prize wild cat hide (ocelot)from a successful jungle hunt. A group photograph taken in the work zone shows one man in a semi-casual suit who bears resemblance to Ernest Hallen, the official photographer of the Panama Canal for thirty years, having been hired by the ICC in 1907. The ICC Canal worker who compiled the album is not identified but a colleague, John Henry Gebhardt of Wisconsin, is shown walking along the track. Born in Germany 1874, at age 33 Gebhardt married a young lady from Iowa the same year moved with her to Porto Bello to work on the canal. There they had one daughter in September 1908. The size and location of the "Gebhardt House" as well as his office-like attire, suggest that he held an administrative role. By February 1912 (possibly earlier) the couple had settled in Iowa and subsequently had four more children. Two photographs also show ruins of the early Spanish colonial fort "Santiago de la Gloria" which guarded the entrance to Portobello city in the sixteenth century, and the colonial Spanish stone church. In a somewhat macabre snapshot, three men pose in the Portobelo cemetery with human skulls at hand. Associated with the fortress, the enclosure was historically used as a slave pen. Finally, two photographs show the indigenous population; and two illustrate the immense vegetation. Endorsed and actively promoted by President Theodore Roosevelt, the American contribution to the Panama Canal project lasted ten years, seeing its completion on August 15, 1914. Portobelo is a port city in Colón Province, Panama, established during the Spanish colonial period. Located on the northern part of the Isthmus of Panama, it has a deep natural harbor and was used as a center for silver exporting before the mid-eighteenth century and destruction in the War of Jenkins' Ear. It was gradually rebuilt and became an important center during construction of the Panama in the late nineteenth century and into the twentieth century, for that time reviving its economy. "The Hotel Tivoli was built for the threefold purpose of furnishing quarters to employees who had arrived on the Isthmus and had no quarters assigned to them, for the use of persons whose business with the canal administration forced them to come to the isthmus, and the recreation of employees, whose chief dissipation is a trip to the city about once a fortnight... The building was begun in August, 1905, and opened to the public on January 1, 1907, although a part of it was used in November, 1906, for the entertainment of President Roosevelt, on the occasion of his visit to the Isthmus..." [From The Panama Guide, written by John O. Collins, 1912.] Ernest "Red" Hallen (1875-1947) was an American photographer, noted for his 30 years of work as the official photographer of the Panama Canal. In 1907 he was appointed as the official photographer of the Panama Canal by the Isthmian Canal Commission. Over his thirty-year career, Hallen produced more than 16,000 photographs of the Canal Zone and the surrounding environment. The images are remarkable because they thoroughly document the canal construction and offer great insight into the redevelopment of the landscape, construction methods, use of the completed canal and the life of the Panamanian population in the Canal Zone. Hallen also depicted the day-to-day life of the so-called "Zonians" - the Americans living in the Panama Canal Zone. For his service to the Panama Canal Zone and as an employee of the ICC, Hallen was awarded the Roosevelt Medal with two bars.. Very Good.

        [The Novels:]

      London: J. D. Dent & Sons Ltd,, 1907-1909. Pride and Prejudice; Sense and Sensibility; Northanger Abbey; Persuasion; Mansfield Park; Emma. 6 works, octavo (193 × 119 mm). Bound in near contemporary red half calf, red cloth sides, titles to spines gilt, gilt raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Frontispieces, decorative title page and 22 colour plates in each volume. Spines slightly darkened, tips a little worn, cloth sides slightly faded, a little foxing to edges; an excellent set with bright plates. First editions illustrated by Brock in colour. C. E. Brock (1870-1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen for Macmillan's 1895-7 series, though he illustrated only Pride and Prejudice, with Hugh Thomson illustrating the other five titles. That series appeared in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite in colour, and also to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. The colourful costumes and interior decor depicted here are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, as Charles Brock and his brother Henry collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

Narrative of John Heckewelder's journey to the Wabash in 1792.--The Heckewelder narrative. John Gottlieb Ernestus Heckewelder was an American missionary for the Moravian Church. After a visit to Ohio with Christian F. Post, a colonial agent, in 1762, and temporary employment in the Moravian missions at Friedenshutten and Sheshequin, Pennsylvania, in 1765-1771, he entered, in the latter year, upon his actual career as an evangelist to the Indians, being appointed assistant to David Zeisberger, in Ohio, where he remained fifteen years. In 1792, at the request of the secretary of war, he accompanied Gen. Rufus Putnam to Post Vincennes to treat with the Indians. In 1793 he was a second time commissioned to assist at a treaty with the Indians of the lakes. Between 1797 and 1800 he remained mainly in Ohio, and was for a time in the civil service, being a postmaster, a justice of the peace, and an associate justice of the court of common pleas. He studied carefully the languages, manners, and customs of the Indians, particularly the Delawares, and after he had become a member of the American Philosophical Society, at Philadelphia, several of his contributions of Indian archaeology were published in their transactions. This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Portrait photograph]: Spartan and Olympian Black Women's Basketball Teams

      [1907]. Albumen photograph on thick card. Approximately 7.75" x 5.5". One tack hole at top, edges slightly rough (possibly trimmed but seemingly without much loss of image - just touching the hair of the uppermost woman in the picture) overall very good or better. A richly toned image of 20 well-dressed African-American women and two men (presumably coaches). The woman have banners reading "Olympian", "Spartan", and "Jun[ior?]" and hold a basketball that is painted "S.H.S.B.B.T. '07." Each of the women has a letter sewn onto her blouse, either an "O", "S", "J", or "I", presumably indicating that they are from Olympian, Spartan, Junior[?], or the unidentified "I" team (possibly the Independent Pleasure Club team from Orange, New Jersey, another pioneering women's team).Presumably this is a group shot of several black women's teams, and as near as we can determine predates any other images of black women basketball teams by three years. According to the website "The Brooklyn Game" (http://thebrooklyngame.com/brooklyns-first-basketball-team/): "Brooklyn was home to a historic basketball first, way back in 1906, when the Smart Set Athletic Club of Brooklyn, an African American social and sports organization, launched the first formally organized and independently run all-black basketball team... [they] played their first game in 1907 as part of a dynamic all-black Olympian Athletic League." The article also mentions: "Like many Black Fives Era men's basketball teams, the Smart Set Athletic Club had a sister team called the Spartan Girls Athletic Club. The Spartan Girls were one of America's first all-black women's basketball teams."According to the Black Fives Foundation, dedicated to the history of African-Americans in basketball: "...the very first all-black female basketball team --- the New York Girls (1910-1914), champions of New York and New Jersey in 1910! There were dozens of other early African American women's teams, including the Spartan Girls (1910-1914)...".This image pre-dates their starting date for the team by three years, as well as pre-dating the first image of the team by the same amount of time. We can find no mention of any earlier clubs, although obviously the Olympian, Junior, and the unidentified "I" club would also qualify to share that honor. .

        An electrical method of counting the number of [alpha]-particles from radioactive substances.London: Harrison & Sons for The Royal Society, 1908.

      First edition, the invention of the Geiger counter. This device made possible the famous alpha-particle scattering experiment carried out by Geiger and Marsden which led Rutherford to the discovery of the atomic nucleus.<br/><br/> "In 1907 Rutherford was translated to the chair of physics in the University of Manchester. Here he found a young graduate of Erlangen, Hans Geiger, with whom he devised [in the present paper] an electrical method of counting the alpha-particles directly, the Geiger counter as it has since been generally called... This counting of atoms one by one was a great achievement" (Whittaker, <i>History of Theories of Aether and Electricity</i>, Vol. I, p. 7). <br/><br/> The detector devised by Geiger consisted of a wire in a low-pressure chamber with a voltage applied across the wire and the outside of the tube. The voltage is high enough that a current can almost, but not quite, flow through the gas. When an ionizing particle came into contact with the wire, it disturbs the system enough to complete the circuit, and the resulting completion can be detected by an audible click or by a pointer, depending on the type of counter. <br/><br/> Once it was possible to reliably detect, and therefore count, alpha particles, Rutherford devised an experiment to determine the charge on an alpha particle. In 'The charge and nature of the [alpha]-particle' (pp. 162-73 in the present issue), Rutherford and Geiger report the results of that experiment, namely that the charge on an alpha-particle is twice the electronic charge. <br/><br/> Hans Geiger (1882-1945) studied physics at the University of Munich and served in the German military before pursuing graduate studies at Erlangen, earning his PhD in 1906 with a thesis on electrical releases through gases. He then moved to England to become a laboratory assistant in Rutherford's laboratory at the University of Manchester. In 1909 he conducted the famous 'gold foil experiment' with Ernest Marsden, and in 1911 he and John Nuttall discovered the 'Geiger-Nuttall law' relating the rate of radioactive decay to the energy of the emitted alpha-particles. In 1914, Geiger returned to Germany, initially to take charge of radiation research at the National Institute for Science and Technology. After World War I, during which he served as an artillery officer, Geiger returned to research, finding a position at the University of Kiel where he collaborated with one of his doctoral students, Walther Muller, on improving his original Geiger counter device, making it more efficient, responsive, durable and portable. Unlike the earlier version, which could detect only alpha particles, the new improved Geiger-Muller counter could detect many different kinds of ionizing radiation. He used the new device to confirm the existence of light quanta in 1925, and later to discover cosmic ray showers, which would claim his scientific attention for the remainder of is career. Geiger was a member of the so-called Uranium Club, a clandestine German effort to develop and produce atomic weapons after the discovery of atomic fission in 1939. The program splintered in 1942, with its scientists moving to other areas of research deemed more urgent, after it was determined (incorrectly) that nuclear fission would not play a major role in ending the war.. In: Proceedings of the Royal Society, Series A, Vol. 81, No. 546, August 27, 1908, pp. 141-161. The entire issue offered here in original grey printed wrappers. Large 8vo (256 x 177 mm), pp. 141-220.

        Zur Chirurgie des Herzens und des Herzbeutels, in 'Archiv fur Klinische Chirurgie'

      Berlin: Verlag von August Hirshwald 1907, 1907. Pp.904. Original printed wrappers. Prof. Dr. Rehn's treatise appears on pp.723-778. A fine copy, in a folding protective case with gilt-titled orange leather label to spine and gilt crest to upper (some wear to box). This is an account of the first successful suture of the heart and an important paper in the evolution of cardiac surgery. "The Italian surgeons did some bold operating on the heart... the first successful suture was done by L. Rehn at Frankfort on the Main in 1896... Rehn's case was alive when he wrote this paper, over ten years after the operation had been performed" (Garrison, page 596). This copy is from the important Library of future Bond novelist Ian Fleming, a famous 1930's book collector who, under guidance of Percy Muir of London Booksellers Elkin Matthews, sought volumes and papers that changed the course of mankind. They assembled an impressive archive of the theories behind techological and social progress and advancement including eminent works by such authors as Charles Darwin (evolution), Albert Einstein (relativity), Marie Curie (radiation), Alexander Graham Bell (telephony), Heinrich Hertz (radio waves), Michael Faraday and Alexander Volta (electricity), Karl Marx (communism), Orville Wright (aviation), Francis Galton (fingerprinting) and Sigmund Freud (psychiatry). Muir later claimed it was one of the proudest achievements of his life, and at the landmark 'Printing and the Mind of Man' exhibition in July 1963 Fleming's provided 44 scientific books from his library, far exceeding any other private collector and second only to Cambridge University. Much to Muir's chagrin, Fleming insisted each volume be housed in buckram cases of his design, with a coloured morocco label to indicate subject; orange for pure science, green for medicine, etc. Muir disapproved of spending money on anything that wasn't a book. Following Fleming's death and some drawn-out negotiations, his collection was sold in 1970 to the University of Indiana, and is housed at their Lilly Library, along with the ms. to the majority Fleming's James Bond novels. 'A few' of the titles which were acquired by Fleming had been previously sold and are not part of the Lilly holdings- some may have been duplicates, where an upgrade had been sought, or perhaps an inscribed or annotated copy became available. For whatever reason, those copies that have made it into commerce are particularly scarce; I know of just three other titles- Einstein's Theory of Relativity [housed in the Ian Fleming Bibliographical Archive],Fuhlrott's Discovery of Neanderthal Man [sold at Christies, New York, June 2008] and Darwin's Origin of the Species [offered by an ABA member in 2010]. The present book is remarkable in its own right, but of further significance in that it is just one of a few known Fleming-owned scientific texts to surface; this was previously owned by the James Bond historian John Griswald. In 2008, to celebrate the launch of the Definitive Works of Ian Fleming in Limited Edition, some five books from the Fleming Collection were exhibited in London for the first time since the book were acquired by the Lilly Library thirty eight years previously.

        [Portrait photograph]: Spartan and Olympian Black Women's Basketball Teams

      [1907]. Albumen photograph on thick card. Approximately 7.75" x 5.5". One tack hole at top, edges slightly rough (possibly trimmed but seemingly without much loss of image - just touching the hair of the uppermost woman in the picture) overall very good or better. A richly toned image of 20 well-dressed African-American women and two men (presumably coaches). The woman have banners reading "Olympian", "Spartan", and "Jun[ior?]" and hold a basketball that is painted "S.H.S.B.B.T. '07." Each of the women has a letter sewn onto her blouse, either an "O", "S", "J", or "I", presumably indicating that they are from Olympian, Spartan, Junior[?], or the unidentified "I" team (possibly the Independent Pleasure Club team from Orange, New Jersey, another pioneering women's team).Presumably this is a group shot of several black women's teams, and as near as we can determine predates any other images of black women basketball teams by three years. According to the website "The Brooklyn Game" (http://thebrooklyngame.com/brooklyns-first-basketball-team/): "Brooklyn was home to a historic basketball first, way back in 1906, when the Smart Set Athletic Club of Brooklyn, an African American social and sports organization, launched the first formally organized and independently run all-black basketball team... [they] played their first game in 1907 as part of a dynamic all-black Olympian Athletic League." The article also mentions: "Like many Black Fives Era men's basketball teams, the Smart Set Athletic Club had a sister team called the Spartan Girls Athletic Club. The Spartan Girls were one of America's first all-black women's basketball teams."According to the Black Fives Foundation, dedicated to the history of African-Americans in basketball: "...the very first all-black female basketball team --- the New York Girls (1910-1914), champions of New York and New Jersey in 1910! There were dozens of other early African American women's teams, including the Spartan Girls (1910-1914)...".This image pre-dates their starting date for the team by three years, as well as pre-dating the first image of the team by the same amount of time. We can find no mention of any earlier clubs, although obviously the Olympian, Junior, and the unidentified "I" club would also qualify to share that honor. .

        Archive of material relating to the artwork for Halford's Dry-Fly Fishing in Theory and Practice (1889) and Dry Fly Entomology (1897), including original watercolors of the Ephemera Danica, Nymphae and Mayfly by Ellen Kemp, colored and uncolored proof states of the plates, autograph notes from Halford to Kemp, notes on coloring the plates, and correspondence between Kemp and the publishers

      [London, 1907. 4to and smaller. In custom folding box with morocco spine label. Kemp, Ellen. Kemp, Ellen. 4to and smaller. Halford's Artist & Colorist, Mrs. Ellen Kemp. Fine archive of material relating to Ellen Kemp's artwork for Halford's angling books, chiefly concerning Dry-Fly Fishing in Theory and Practice and Dry Fly Entomology. The original watercolors appear as plates XV and XVI of Dry-Fly Fishing in Theory and Practice. In addition to the original designs, engraved by Babbage, Mrs. Kemp was responsible for most of the hand-coloring for the finished plates and mounting the artificial flies in volume two of the deluxe issue. The archive includes a set of plates bearing her signature "E Kemp del. at nat", Halford's initialled approval of sample coloring, and her own patterns and notes for the order in which colors are to be applied. Several of the publisher's memoranda discuss the author's insistence that silver wire be used. Mrs. Kemp's retained copy of her letter dated 19 November 1896 bears her calculation and notes "my price would be £12. 13. 0. for mounting 108 sets of 100 flies with wire, on 108 dozens of cards". The association of Kemp with Halford's books was a long one. In Halford's autograph card to her dated May 12, 1889, when Dry-Fly Fishing in Theory and Practice was in preparation, he writes "Will you kindly sign the enclosed sketches in pencil & return them to me. Do not trouble to clean them or anything else as they are wanted to bind in a presentation copy of the book. ... I know you are worried about the coloured plates, at the same time pray think that I quite appreciate the excellence of the work as contributing to the general success." There is also later correspondence from Vinton requesting her to color plates in 1907. Tony Hayter, in his 2002 book, F.M. Halford and the Dry-Fly Revolution, makes no mention of Kemp and does not appear to have drawn upon this archive. UNIQUE AND OUTSTANDING.

        The Golden Crisis [1907 futurism]

      Columbus, OH: Oasis Publishing Co., 1907 Columbus, OH: Oasis Publishing Co., 1907. First edition, signed and inscribed by Clark "yours for the millenium..." on the ffep. 7" x 4.75", gilt pictorial dark blue cloth. Shelf wear, strongly along bottom edges, else VG+. Sturdy and bright. A look - in 1907 - by historical muralist Egbert Norman Clark at the transformation the human psyche was encountering during the first few years after the run of the nineteenth century. A familiar sounding passage echos from his introductory paragraph: ""The most advanced thinkers and students of sociology of the day all agree that the human race is now passing through a transitional period in its development, and that, as a social fabric, we are rapidly approaching a crisis." With chapter titles taken from astrology - numbered "ages" dominated each by a planet - and strong spiritual opinions by Clark throughout ("Humanity Is God!!!) - a fascinating, telling, uncategorizable futuristic book. Very rare in its first edition; this one is signed, and as such is probably not replaceable. Please feel free to ask questions or request additional scans. L2
