        Theodore Roosevelt

      London: , 1907. Image size: 22 x 17.3 cm. Mount size: 45.7 x 27.8 cm. Framed in a hand finished black wooden frame. Monochrome photogravure tipped onto a white wove mount. Produced under the personal supervision of Coburn on his own copper plate press. Light toning to mount otherwise in excellent condition. Proof before letters (no printed plate number or facsimile signature). Theodore Roosevelt titled to the foot of the mount in Coburn's hand. Printed on slightly heavier paper and tipped on to a much larger mount than that published in "Men of Mark". Coburn's first book of portraits "Men of Mark" was published in 1911 (it was followed some years later by More Men of Mark) features 33 portraits of artists, thinkers and writers such as George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, Henry James, Auguste Rodin, Henri Matisse, Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, Frank Brangwyn, William Butler Yeats, Robert Bridges etc. Coburn's introductory text provides a running commentary on his pursuit of his subjects and their eventual capture on film. 'To make satisfactory photographs of persons it is necessary for me to like them, to admire them, or at least to be interested in them. It is rather curious and difficult to exactly explain, but if I dislike my subject it is sure to come out in the resulting portrait. I had thought of using 'Men of Genius' as the title for this book, but Arnold Bennett objected seriously, saying, very modestly, that he did not consider himself a man of genius, but merely a working author, and absolutely refusing to join the throng unless I changed it, so I told him that if he would give me a better one I would use it. 'Men of Mark' is his alternative. '

        Chamber Music

      London: Elkin Matthews, (1907). First edition, first issue of Joyce's first book. The first printing consisted of 509 copies; however, fewer than fifty copies of the first binding appear to have been issued and perhaps fewer than fifteen copies are extant. Chamber Music, Joyce's first book, was published only through the considerable efforts of Arthur Symons, whom he had met through Yeats in 1902. Symons not only moved heaven and earth to find him a publisher who wouldn't require a subsidy, but he also wrote an extremely favorable review of the book in the Nation. Spine lettering rubbed away, some wear to extremities, small marginal dampstain affects the first few leaves, sporadic tiny tears to page edges. Overall a very good copy in publisher's green cloth.

        [Golf] Drawing for July, 1907 issue of "Success" Magazine

      [New York: 1907]. Pen and ink on heavy paper, signed right "R. Emmett Owen" . On verso, an "Art Dept. Memo" states that the drawing was done in March, 1907 to be "engraved" for and "used in" the July, 1907 issue. 10 1/4 x 20 1/2 inches. A wonderful golf drawing by R. Emmett Owen for "Success" Magazine R. Emmett Owen (1878 - 1957) began his artistic career as an illustrator, having pen and ink drawings accepted by Life Magazine when he was 19. The present work may be said to come from his mature work as an illustrator. In 1910, he began to devote himself to the beautiful impressionistic landscapes for which he is primarily known. One is impressed by how effortlessly Owen composes a rather thrilling scene. Rather than have us view the handsome young golfer's drive from the gallery, Owen places us directly in front of him, ducking as it were. He and his attractive companion, both quite serious, stand on top of a slope which falls away on either side suggesting that the young, earnest couple stand on top of the world. Golf established itself in America in the late 1880s and continued to grow in popularity with both men and women, though through most of history here in America, it has been an upper class recreation. So the handsome young couple directly before us really do in many ways stand on top of the world.

        Les uniformes du Premier [1er] Empire. Collection Cartes Postales Artistiques Documentaires publiées sous la direction de M. le Lieutenant / du Capitaine E.-L. Bucquoy. [COLLECTION OF Ca. 1,800 ORIGINAL HAND-COLOURED CARDS]

      Nancy, Paris, Strasbourg, G. Francq, F. Gedovius, Treuttel et Wurtz, 1907-52.. Collection of ca. 1,793 (of 1,830) unique original hand-coloured cards in 220 series (of 226). The cards, printed in collotype, were professionally hand-coloured according to the original artworks before being issued. Collotype is one of the most accurate and attractive methods of photomechanical tonal printing processes. Highly skilled and expensive process, it cannot produce more than a limited number of impressions. It has been used for single-sheet prints and luxury portfolios, and since the 1950s has been abandoned by all except a few small specialist firms. The entire collection is meticulously arranged according to subject in 8 ring albums, each leaf protected with a tissue guard. A most fantastic set in absolutely superb condition. - - Original hand-coloured edition. Practically complete. [- - ADDED:] AN ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR by Bucquoy, signed by himself, dated 1922. Measuring 29 x 21 cm, on thick handmade paper, preserved in superb condition. This attractive original was later reproduced as card 134/4: ?Le Colonel Brincard?. [- - ALSO ADDED:] A rare collection of over 100 original explanatory leaflets, booklets, and books by Bucquoy, some of which are full-length and illustrated, all part of the present work. These materials, published between 1912 and 1953, were especially issued to accompany the cards and to provide extensive scholarly information on the study of uniforms. [- - ALSO ADDED:] A rare collection of over 150 original printed envelopes including the first envelope, number 1. Each envelope acts as a title-page to the corresponding series of cards. It is titled, captioned, dated, priced, numbered according to series, and bears the names of the artists who worked on this particular series. - - Eugene Louis Bucquoy (1879-1958) is considered the founding father of French uniform research. His ?Bréviaire du Collectionneur d?uniformes renseignements -Conseils -Souvenirs? (1953) became the standard work on research and collection. Bucquoy was an officer of the Gendarmerie Nationale. In 1920 he founded the Société d?Étude des Uniformes de France of which he consequently became president. For his ?Les uniformes du 1er Empire?, by far the largest and most complete work ever compiled exclusively on the French army during the 1st Empire, he invited the foremost military artists at the time. Benigni, Huen, Rousselot, Knötel, Boisselier, Hilpert, JOB, Rouffet, Toussaint, Detaille, are among the best known. He continued to work on the project until his death. [- - PROVENANCE:] The present collection comes from the bequest of the late Dr. Frans Gerard de Wilde (1903-1999). A pharmacist by profession, a Captain in the Dutch Artillery, a recipient of the Bronze Cross for bravery in battle, he was the supreme expert on Dutch military uniforms, a distinguished collector, and a noted artist. In his youth he was befriended with Hoynck van Papendrecht, the great Dutch painter of military scenes and uniforms. He later became acquainted with the major experts on military uniforms in Europe, in particular with Commandant Bucquoy, with whom he corresponded regularly. He was a major force behind the initiation of the Legermuseum in Delft, and a member of its board until his death. In 1992, when he decide to part from his extensive collection, a major auction sale was organized, attracting collectors from all over the world and considerable media attention. Though the main reason for his decision to sell his collection was his planned move to a smaller residence, it is remarkable that he was not willing to part from his collection of the Bucquoy's cards and this was not offered on the sale. He kept this large 8-volume set with him until his death. Extremely rare. Such practically complete sets of this work are virtually extinct. Not in OCLC, KVK, COPAC, British Library, Library of Congress, nor in any institutional library worldwide. The National Library of France is the only library to hold a fragment of this work - having in their collection only 22 series out of 226.

        An original watercolour and bodycolour caricature portrait of the High Court Judge, Lord Warrington

      [London: 1907]. Watercolour and bodycolour, signed `Spy'. Image area 15 x 10 inches. Framed and glazed. A fine watercolour character portrait by `Spy' of Thomas Rolls Warrington, the original of an image that was reproduced in `Vanity Fair' on 27 November 1907, under the title `A very Sound Judge. Mr. Justice Rolls Warrington'. 'Spy' was the pseudonym adopted by Leslie Ward when he began his career as a caricaturist for Vanity Fair Magazine in 1873. Ward was born in 1851 into an artistic dynasty, both his parents were painters, and on his mother's side her father and grandfather were artists or engravers, as was her uncle, and her great uncle was George Morland. Unsurprisingly, given heredity and environment, Ward showed a precocious talent and in 1871 was studying at the Royal Academy Schools. John Everett Millais was struck by his caricatures and introduced him to Thomas Gibson Bowles, the proprietor of Vanity Fair. For the next thirty six years his character portraits of the rich and famous of the day enjoyed tremendous popularity, and in 1918 he was knighted in recognition of his contribution. Thomas Rolls Warrington (1851-1937) was called to the bar by Lincoln's Inn in 1875, where he became a pupil of F. Millar, Q.C. `He soon acquired a reputation as a junior and, to quote from the letterpress of a cartoon of him in Vanity Fair, `by dint of care, industry and ability, acquired a large practice on the Chancery side'. He took silk in 1895, and, in accordance with the system then in force, attached himself to the court of Sir Arthur Kekewich... He soon established a considerable influence over that judge. The possibility of such influence was one of the main objections to the `tied silk' system, but it can be said with certainty that Warrington never abused the influence which he obtained and thoroughly deserved the confidence of the judge. To other counsel he set a fine example. He knew his papers thoroughly; he treated his junior with a courtesy almost amounting to deference and his opponent, whether experienced leader or young junior, with exemplary politeness and respect. He was elected a bencher of his Inn in 1897. In April 1904 Warrington was appointed a judge of the Chancery division of the High Court. His appointment was universally approved and he at once gained, and retained, the respect and affection of those who practiced before him. In 1915 he was promoted to the Court of Appeal and sworn of the Privy Council.' (Dictionary of National Biography). He was raised to the peerage, on his retirement in October 1926, as Baron Warrington of Clyffe. Literature: Published in Vanity Fair Magazine, 27 November 1907 (a copy of the published print mounted on the verso of the frame of the present work).

        The South Polar Times

      London: Smith, Elder, & Co.,, 1907–14. 3 volumes, quarto. Original navy blue cloth, titles gilt to spines and upper boards, inset coloured pictorial decoration to upper boards within gilt rope-twist borders, all edges gilt. Profusely illustrated with chromolithographic and black and white plates - some mounted, a number from Ponting photographs - and text illustrations, including caricatures and silhouettes of expedition members. A little rubbed, head and tail of the spine to volume III relined, front hinges neatly repaired, text-blocks secured, endpapers of volumes I and II lightly browned and foxed as usual, some spots of foxing to the text, offsetting from the first two plates in volume I, but overall a very good set, carefully restored. First collected edition. Volumes I and II limited to 250 copies, these both numbered 149, and volume III limited to 350, this numbered 235. "A visually exact reproduction of the The South Polar Times originally issued during the Antarctic expeditions of Robert F. Scott, the first two volumes were published in 1907 with a preface by Scott. The original had been edited and printed by Ernest Shackleton who produced five issues between April and August 1902, each in a single typewritten copy. After Scott sent Shackleton home in March 1903 the next volume was edited by Louis Bernacchi, from April to August. Edward Wilson was the principal illustrator, though contributions and illustrations came from both officers and crew." (Books on Ice). The final volume was edited by Apsley Cherry-Garrard during Scott's last expedition of 1911, and published in 1914. Together they form what is perhaps the most personal of the printed documents to have come out of the Heroic Era of Antarctic exploration, revealing the often contradictory aspects of the participant's personalities. As Scott explained in his preface, publication was proposed in "March 1902 [when] we were busily preparing for our first Antarctic winter as we watched the sun sinking towards its long rest. We knew that daylight would shortly disappear for four whole months, and our thoughts turned naturally to the long dark period before us and the means by which we could lighten its monotony." The expedition scientists were to "write luminously on their special subjects, and to record scientific events of general interest", while "lighter matter" indulging "any shy vein of sentiment or humour that might exist among us" was encouraged under "the cloak of anonymity." The exercise certainly seems to have achieved its aim, as Scott recounts; "I can see again a row of heads bent over a fresh monthly number to scan the latest efforts of our artists, and I can hear the hearty laughter at the sallies of our humorists and the general chaff when some sly allusion found its way home." Clean, bright and handleable sets are distinctly uncommon. The weight of the text-blocks, which would tax even traditionally bound volumes, has in most cases certainly proved too much for the gutta percha bindings which are "now mostly perished" (Taurus) In this set the text has been skilfully stabilized, and the hinges tightened; off-setting from the chromolithographs is minimal, with no trace of the adhesion often found; and the "handsome bindings", with "finely coloured printed scenes" and striking gilt-work, remain free of scratching and scuffing. In all an excellent set of this important record of the human side of polar endeavour.

      Montclair, NJ, 1907. A remarkable manuscript diary recounting the everyday life of a middle-class Montclair, New Jersey, 7th grader. Terrific ink drawings illustrate many of the daily entries.

The entries are detailed and include information about school, manual training (he's building a printing press in shop), meals, sports (lots about skating and baseball), reading habits (he has a fondess for the Rover Boys), violin lessons and choir practice, church, his favorite toy (an alcohol fueled steam engine with attachments), dancing lessions, weather, sledding, trolleys, and much, much more. Following his graduation from Princeton, Rose took a position with Aetna Life Insurance Company until the outbreak of WWI. He then enlisted in the Marine Corps and was promoted to Corporal just before the Battle of Belleau Wood. On June 6, the first day of the Marine counterattack, Rose was shot in the knee as his unit, the 67th Company (Company D, 1st Battalion) of the 5th Marine Regiment was raked by machine gun fire as it advanced and suffered some of the most horrific losses of any American unit in the war (the casualties included all four officers and twenty sergeants and corporals.). Rose's leg was amputated at American Red Cross Hospital #1, and he died 18 days later. Following the war, a Princeton scholarship was established in his name. Sound binding. Very legible writing. Cover has some minor wear and soiling.. Journal. Very Good. 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall.

Yeats's The Wind Among the Reeds Robertson added a watercolour), and a friend of George Moore (A.E.) from his Dublin days. Her work was exhibited in the inaugural British pavilion at the Venice Biennale, 1909.

        The Moose Hunter - Cree [Pl. 623]

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, [1907-1930]. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, Japan paper. Very good condition. 13 3/4 x 17 inches. 17 7/8 x 21 3/4 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 "The Birds of America" surpasses Curtis's 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) "Cree hunters are masters of the art of imitating, by means of a birch bark trumpet, the call of a moose of either sex, and thus luring within gunshot an animal seeking a mate during the rutting season." (Curtis, List of Large Plates Supplementing Volume Eighteen) Close relations of the Ojibwa, the Crees were the chief tribe in Canada and one of the largest in North America. They inhabited an extensive western region north of the prairies and south of the Peace River and were comprised of two principal divisions, the Wood and Plains Cree, which consisted of numerous individual bands. 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.

Very good condition apart from some slight discolouration of the paper along the extreme edge of the top right margin. 13 1/2 x 16 5/8 inches. 17 7/8 x 21 3/4 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.

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 scene is Clear Lake. The abundant tules along its shallows formerly supplied the natives with material for house coverings, mats, garments, and balsas, and sheltered teeming flocks of waterfowl" (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.
