        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.…[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.

        Raum und Zeit: Vortrag, gehalten auf der 80. Naturforscher-Versammlung zu Köln am 21. September 1908.Leipzig & Berlin: B.G. Teubner, 1909. First seperate printing.

      "Minkowski introduced the concept of the space-time continuum in his 1907 paper on electronmagnetic phenomena in moving bodires [<i>Die Grundgleichungen für die elektromagnetischen Vorgänge in bewegten Körpern</i>] , but this paper, because of its highly technical language, did not claim the attention of more hat a few specialists. Minkowski attracted a much wider audience for his theories with this paper on 'Space and time'. Minkowski's idea made it possible for Einstein to expand the relativisty theory from its specific to its general form, and they became a framework for all later developments in relativity physics. 'Raum und Zeit' was originally published in Vol II (1909) of the <i>Verhandlungen</i> of the Deutscher Naturforscher und Aertze; it was later reprinted in the <i>Jahresberichte der Deutschen Mathematiker Vereinung</i>. The present offprint [as offered here] from the <i>Jahresberichte</i> was commissioned as a tribute after Minkowski's sudden and tragic death." (Norman). Norman 1514 (offprint); PMM 401 (journal issue).. 8vo (261 x 178 mm), original buff printed wrappers, pp [4] [1] 2-14 [2], half-tone portrait frontispiece after photograph by Emil Loges. Minimal wear to spine strip and a very light damp stain to rear wrapper, in all a very good copy
