        Interesting ALS About Travel Plans & His Automobile

Interesting ALS About Travel Plans & His Automobile. 8vo., 1 1/2 pages on the elaborate letterhead of Hôtel Café Restaurant G. Donizot. Auxerre,(Yonne, Bourgogne) n.d. [c. 1907].Trans. In part. "My dear Griffin / Tomorrow, we're headed to Savoie en Dauphiné where I will stay for some time before going to Tropez in September. It would be helpful for me to plan this tour if I knew when you may need Poirel for the casting of the Darzens cars. / I hope your car motors wonderfully and shows you the joys of tourism while waiting for the 24 HP's vanderbiltian pleasures! As for us, we are making a 'un petit 33 des famille' with pannes & pannettes, but I am now convinced that I have a good machine under my feet. / Please, with my respect, send Mrs. Viele my wife's fondest memory and trust in my wholehearted friendship. / P. Signac A very good example with small loss at the left margin not affecting text, neatly closed tears reinforced at the folds. Orig. "Mon cher Griffin / Nous sommes en essais et mise au point avec Poirel Sans l'Avallonnais (petite surfe trop miniature). Demain nous embrayons pour Savoie et Dauphiné, où je séjournerai quelque temps pour arriver en Septembre à Tropez. / Il me serait bien utile pour l'organisation de cette tournée de savoir le moment où vous pourriez avoir besoin de Poirel pour le moulage des voitures Darzens. Si vous vouliez bien m'écrire un mot à ce sujet chez M. Terifier, notaire, II me St Nizier, Macon (S. et L.) vous me rendriez service. / J'espère que votre voiture roule à merveille et vous fait gouter les pures joies du tourisme, en attendant les délices vanderbiltiennes de la 24 HP.! Nous, nous faisons un petit 33 des famille avec pannes et pannettes, mais je suis maintenant convaincu d'avoir de la bonne mécanique sous les pieds. / Veuillez présenter à Madame Viele avec mes hommages, le meilleur souvenir de ma femme et croire à toute mon amitié. / P. Signac". Paul Signac [1863 - 1935]. French neo-impressionist painter who, working with Georges Seurat, helped develop the pointillist style. In 1884 he met Claude Monet & Georges Seurat. He was struck by the systematic working methods of Seurat & by his theory of colors & became Seurat's faithful supporter. Under his influence he abandoned the short brushstrokes of impressionism to experiment with scientifically juxtaposed small dots of pure color, intended to combine & blend not on the canvas but in the viewer's eye, the defining feature of pointillism. Many of Signac's paintings are of the French coast. He loved to paint the water. He left the capital each summer, to stay in the south of France in the village of Collioure or at St. Tropez.. Signed by Author. Original Autographed Letters & Documents.

        From the Hills of Dream: Threnodies, Songs and Later Poems, by Fiona MacLeod

      London: William Heinemann, 1907. Octavo. (xvi), 203pp. First edition. A unique copy with an elaborate contemporary painted vellum binding. As befitting the works of a Scottish writer, the paintings take inspiration from Celtic calligraphy and designs. A border of gold leaves and stars against a green background frames the front cover. An intricate center lettering panel bears the title, which is decorated with delicate spirals and leaves. The spine is illuminated with the title, two floral devices, stars, and a dove. The back cover is decorated with a central device and a Celtic-style decoration in the top left corner. The paintings were done by the American-born artist Da Loria Norman, who likely decorated books for the London binder Robert Riviére, as well as others. Norman was born Belle Elkin Mitchell in Kansas in 1872 and moved to England with her family early in her life. Norman began a friendship with Fiona MacLeod (William Sharp) through correspondence after separating from her husband in 1905. She found comfort in MacLeod's poetry while in the abusive relationship and in turn felt inspired to illuminate his works. Letters reveal that he sent her at least one book, saying, "In it, though disguised, there is much of my own sorrow; and so, perchance I thought, heart would speak to heart." Her work shows the influence of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, and Pre-Raphaelite styles. While decorating bindings and illuminating books were a common hobby among society women at the time, Norman elevated it into a successful business and did most of her work on commission. An autodidact who learned by studying medieval manuscripts at the British Museum, Norman was also an accomplished painter and created especially fine works of needlepoint. Although she is not widely known today, her work attracted critical attention and was praised by several artists of the time, including Walter Crane. Some light soiling to vellum, and faint rubbing to the gilding and green paint. Ownership inscription on free endleaf.

        Before Adam

      New York. The Macmillan Company 1907. Bound in pictorial decorated brown buckram 8vo. First Edition.This copy inscribed boldly in ink by Jack London to his Sister, Ida London Byrne and his Brother-In-Law Jack on the Front free endsheet In a strong,broad hand requiring the majority of the Front Free Endsheet, London writes :& "Dear Ida & Jack- With love and lots off (sic) it from your brother, Jack London. Oakland, Calif. April 17,1907 " A most ironic spelling error ( "off for "of " )by one of history's great writers !& & Accompanying this volume is a postcard loosely laid-in. The front of the postcard is a photograph of Jack and Charmian London outside their home ( Wake Robin Lodge) in Glen Ellen.& Portions of the rear of the card present old scrapbook adhesive remnants which obscure portions of the postmark and stamp as well as the address and message. Postmarked Oakland, January 1913 ( day obscured ) it is addressed to Mrs. Alice shade in San Francisco. The inked message begins "Dear Friend" with the remaining text indecipherable due to adhesive remnant. It is signed "Yours, Ida Byrne ( her married name ). Illustrated with 8 colour plates, map and additional monochrome drawings ex text by Charles Livingston Bull. Ida London ( 1870-1914) was the younger daughter of John London, Jack's step-father.From the turbulence of their early family life through Jack' meteoric rise to fame and ultimate early death, Jack and Ida enjoyed a close and loving relationship, with Jack assuming an almost paternal role in the raising of IDA's daughter,whom she had named after Jack's wife, Charmian. She and her family often lived at her Brother's ranch in Glen Ellen where her husband, Jack Byrne,was employed by London as Personal Assistant and private secretary. In the last years of her life, Ira suffered from ill-health and was often confined to an Oakland sanitarium.She eventually died on the operating table in June of 1914. IDA's husband, Jack Byrne continued in his Brother-In-Law employee until London's death in 1916. Material inscribed to Jack London's immediate family is exceedingly rare and appears for public sale very infrequently.& Very slight lean. Minimal rubbing to covers and spine. Spine titles a bit faded. Corners gently bumped. Scattered mild foxing to prelims (moderately so to inscription). One plate mis-paginated. Several page fore-edges trimmed short (not affecting text). A Very Good, well preserved, crisp copy of a deeply personal relic of the London family.

Prefiguring George Orwell's DOWN & OUT IN PARIS & LONDON, the author's insightful look at the poverty and hardships of the city's homeless influenced Jack Kerouac in his writing of ON THE ROAD.

Only 5,360 copies of this important work were printed. This copy is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author to Churchill Williams and dated Glen Ellen, Calif. 18 Feb. 1910.

Sixty-six black and white drawings. Bound by Bayntun-Riviere, c. 1960 in full dark red morocco and finished by Chris Lewis with a large central pictorial onlay of multi-colored morocco reproducing the plate opposite page 140, If Anyone Lied, or If Any One Swore., within a gilt frame with large cornerpieces. Gilt decorated compartments. Gilt rolled edges. GIlt rolled turn-ins with gilt cornerpieces. All edges gilt. A very fine copy. Housed in a later custom drop-back clamshell box.The Ingoldsby Legends were first printed during 1837 as a regular series of Richard Bentley's magazine, Bentley's Miscellany, and later in New Monthly Magazine. The legends were illustrated by John Leech and George Cruikshank. They proved immensely popular and were compiled into books published during 1840, 1842 and 1847 by Richard Bentley. They remained popular during the 19th century. The illustrations for this volume proved a turning point in Rackham's life. "In 1898, which was to be a watershed year for Rackham, Dent invited him to produce one hundred black and white illustrations for R.H. Barham's quaintly medievalizing poems and stories The Ingoldsby Legends of Mirth and Marvels. The £150 fee for this important commission bought, in addition, ownership of the originals and copyright.…[The] episodic nature and superficial, rollicking humour [of the tales] were well suited to Rackham's talents, presenting him with endless opportunities to exercise his talent for the macabre and the inventive, the fantastic and the knockabout comic" (Hamilton, Arthur Rackham. A Biography, p. 49).The great Christopher Lewis began his career at the internationally renowned Bayntun-Riviere Bindery of Bath, England, during the early 1960s as a finisher. In the 1970s, he established his own bindery and further developed his masterful inlay and gilt work.Lattimore and Haskell p. 30-31.

        [ARCHIVE OF CIRCA 1346 PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE THORNYCROFT SHIPBUILDING WORKS]

      An archive of approximately 1,346 black and white mounted photographs, of varying sizes, but mostly around 8 x 10 inches, including seventy-one framed photographs, the largest of which is some 30 x 45 inches. They are nearly all identified on the verso with the vessel&#39;s name, the builder&#39;s number, and other particulars. Some vessels have multiple photographs. Many of the earlier prints seem to have been made in 1907, later ones presumably contemporaneously. About half the prints are marked "Negative Destroyed," presumably the consequence of a housekeeping exercise. The photographs cover some one hundred years, from the 1860 to the 1960s. Thornycroft, founded in 1864 in Chiswick by John Isaac Thornycroft, became one of the great British manufacturing enterprises, building a diverse range of vessels for military, commercial, and pleasure markets around the world. Thornycroft&#39;s life and work may have been informed by a wider range of impulses than most engineers: his parents and his brother Hamo were professional sculptors, and his nephew was the poet Siegfried Sassoon. This is by no means the complete archive of the production of the firm. The traumas of post-war shipbuilding in Britain saw Thornycroft merge with Vospers in the 1960s to become Vosper Thornycroft, and they went through a series of rationalisations that saw them close down their Thames-based operations, and finally their principal plant at Woolston in 2003. The present pictures appear to have been abandoned at the time of leaving Woolston 2003, and were sold at auction in 2009. The firm diversified into road vehicles at an early stage, and there is a modest representation of this side of the business in the archive. The archive includes representations of many of their most famous vessels, such as the pioneering and startlingly beautiful motor torpedo boat H.M.S. Lightning and the speedboat Miss England III, pictured both in build and at speed on Lake Como, and Sir Bernard Docker&#39;s huge yacht Shemara. There are two tremendous photographs of a Sea Hawk, their stepped "cabin hydroplane" maneuvering at high speed in the Thames before being shipped out to the Sultan of Asahan in Malaya, as well as Gyrinus, the speedboat in which Thornycroft&#39;s son Isaac won two gold medals at the 1908 Olympics. The types of boat illustrated include destroyers, frigates, motor yachts, ferries, landing craft, river launches, tugs, picket boats, torpedo boats, a mission boat, a hospital boat, despatch boats, specialist launches to land goods at St. Helena (double-ended, flat bottomed scow type boats), and a paddle steamer. The firm&#39;s export markets, which were by no means limited to the Empire, demanded many shallow draft vessels, and they became great specialists in these, as well as in high speed boats. There are a very few illustrations of vessels built by other yards, which may have been kept for intelligence purposes. Thornycroft does not appear to have built any purely sailing yachts, but did supply auxiliary engines, so we find pictures of third party boats such as the King of Denmark&#39;s Fife ten-meter Rita IV, the Mylne Solent One Design Kelpie, and Archie McPherson&#39;s famous Driac. The collection is likely to be of great interest to researchers of individual vessels and historians of naval architecture from the 1870s to the 1950s, as well as social historians. Except for one or two which are credited to Beken, the photographers are in all cases anonymous, and we presume were working directly for the firm. There are many stunning examples of objective photography, noteworthy among which are a series of photographs of the details of Gadfly (1906) and a large group of photographs of engineers at work, undated but presumably from the 1930s.

        Pomo Seed-Gathering Utensils [Pl. 484]

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, [1907-1930]. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, wove paper (watermarked 'Van Gelder Zonen Made in Holland'). Excellent condition. 13 1/2 x 16 3/4 inches. 17 3/4 x 22 inches. A breath-taking image from "The North American Indian", the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on Native Americans, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. Only the double- elephant folio edition of Audubon's "Birds of America" surpasses Curtis in its massive ambition and beauty of execution. "...Because of the singular combination of qualities with which he has been blessed, and because of his extraordinary success in making and using his opportunities... (Curtis) has been able to do what no other man has ever done; what, as far as we can see, no other man could do. He is an artist who works out of doors and not in a closet. He is a close observer, whose qualities of mind and body fit him to make his observations out in the field, surrounded by the wild life he commemorates. He has lived on intimate terms with many different tribes of the mountains and the plains. He knows them as they hunt, as they travel, as they go about their various avocations on the march and in camp. He knows their medicine men and their sorcerers, their chiefs and warriors, their young men and maidens. He has not only seen their vigorous outward existence, but has caught glimpses, such as few white men ever catch, into that strange spiritual and mental life of theirs; from whose inner most recesses all white men are forever barred...." (Theodore Roosevelt, Foreword to Volume I) "The group includes a tight mesh burden basket for seeds, an open mesh burden basket for acorns, and other nuts, two winnowing trays, and a seed beater with which the seeds are brushed from the plant into the burden basket" (Curtis, Frontispiece to Volume XIV). Renowned for their unrivalled basketry skills, the Pomo tribe inhabited Northern California. Edward Curtis was fascinated by the story of the Native Americans from childhood. His in- depth knowledge of the various tribes increased in parallel with his skill as a photographer during his participation in a number of scientific expeditions in the 1890s. In 1896, Curtis began to take photographs of the Native American tribes (by 1930 he had taken over 40,000 negatives of eighty tribes) and evolve his hugely ambitious plan for a comprehensive work which would illustrate his romantic vision of Native American life before the disastrous impact of European contact. With the enthusiastic support of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword to the present work) and the financial backing of J. Pierpont Morgan (Curtis was introduced to him by Roosevelt), the publishing project finally got under way in 1906. Pierpont Morgan died in 1913 just before the completion of the ninth volume, but his son agreed to continue underwriting the project; between them, they eventually contributed about a third of the $1,500,000 cost. What had originally been projected to take five or six years eventually stretched to twenty-three, finally reaching a conclusion in 1930 but leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, his grand design was completed, and his work remains as his monument. Cf. Naef & Goldschmidt The Truthful Lens 40; cf. Howes C-965.

        Archaeological Researches on The Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.

      Pittsburgh, Carnegie Institute, 1907. Folio. iv,+ 186 pp.+ 46 plates with photos, partly in colour,+ folding plan. Full linen with red leather spine label, with front wrapper preserved (Solenbergs bokbinderi). (Extracted from the Memoirs of the Carnegie museum, Pittsburg, Pa, Vol. III, N:o 1.) Dedication to Robert Larsson from Hartman. Wrapper with slight repair at corner. Redogörelse för Hartmans andra stora expedition till Costa Rica. Carl Vilhelm Hartman (1862-1941) ledde en första stor forskningsresa 1896-99 till Costa Rica, Guatemala och Salvador. I Costa Rica undersökte han över 400 gravar, vilket bidrog till daterandet av Centralamerikas forntid. Han förde en stor samling till Sverige, vilken p.g.a. ett förbud mot utförsel som infördes året därpå, är en av de större utanför Centralamerika. Denna redogörelse för gravarna i Costa Rica som trycktes 1901 belönades med Loubatpriset. Hartman anställdes därpå av Carnegieinstitutets etnografiska museum i Pittsburgh och företog för dem 1903 ytterligare en resa i Centralamerika, vars resultat presenteras här. Han efterträdde 1905 Hjalmar Stolpe som intendent för Riksmuseets etnografiska avdelning, efter en hård och olustig kamp med Erland Nordenskiöld

        Ingoldsby Legends, The

      1907. The Finest Rackham EditionLimited to 500 Copies Signed by the ArtistIn a Beautiful Inlaid Binding By Chris Lewis[LEWIS, Christopher, binder]. [RACKHAM, Arthur, artist]. INGOLDSBY, Thomas (pseudonym of Richard Harris Barham). The Ingoldsby Legends. Mirth & Marvels. London / New York: J.M. Dent / E.P. Dutton, 1907.Limited to 500 copies signed and numbered by the artist, this being no. 241, of the finest Rackham-illustrated edition with additional color illustrations, improved color illustrations, large-paper format, and reworked pen and ink drawings not found in the edition of 1898. Quarto (11 x 8 5/8 in; 284 x 220 mm). xix, [1], 549, [1] pp. Twenty-four full color tipped-in plates with captioned tissue guards, twelve full-page tinted plates, unmounted. Sixty-six black and white drawings. Bound c. early 1970s by Chris Lewis (stamp-signed) in full red morocco. Triple gilt-ruled borders, Central pictorial inlay of multi-colored morocco reproducing the plate, If Anyone Lied, or If Any One Swore. Gilt-ruled compartments with gilt avian ornaments. Gilt rolled edges. Heavily gilt dentelles. All edges gilt. A fresh, crisp and very fine copy. Housed in a later custom drop-back clamshell box.The Ingoldsby Legends were first printed during 1837 as a regular series of Richard Bentley's magazine, Bentley's Miscellany, and later in New Monthly Magazine. The legends were illustrated by John Leech and George Cruikshank. They proved immensely popular and were compiled into books published during 1840, 1842 and 1847 by Richard Bentley. They remained popular during the 19th century. The illustrations for this volume proved a turning point in Rackham's life. "In 1898, which was to be a watershed year for Rackham, Dent invited him to produce one hundred black and white illustrations for R.H. Barham's quaintly medievalizing poems and stories The Ingoldsby Legends of Mirth and Marvels. The £150 fee for this important commission bought, in addition, ownership of the originals and copyright.&#133;[The] episodic nature and superficial, rollicking humour [of the tales] were well suited to Rackham's talents, presenting him with endless opportunities to exercise his talent for the macabre and the inventive, the fantastic and the knockabout comic" (Hamilton, Arthur Rackham. A Biography, p. 49).The great Christopher Lewis began his career at the internationally renowned Bayntun-Riviere Bindery of Bath, England, during the early 1960s as a finisher. In the 1970s, he established his own bindery and further developed his masterful inlay and gilt work.Lattimore and Haskell p. 30-31.
