        Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh, and other Pageants for a Baby Girl.

      John Lane, The Bodley Head, London 1907 - With Twelve Designs in Colour by the Author. Black and white vignette on half-title, title printed in red and black, 12 coloured illustrations. First Edition. 4to. [268 x 210 x 21 mm]. 152, [8] pp. Bound in the original publisher's decorative blue cloth, blocked in yellow and black, plain endleaves, top edge stained blue (rear cover a little discoloured, slight flaking of the lettering on spine). A very good copy, inscribed on the front free endleaf: " "Silly rot, I call it" Tommy in Pinkie and the Fairies. W. Graham Robertson. Jan 1909". Pinkie and the Fairies (A Fairy Play in Three Acts) was another of Robertson's works, first performed at Christmas 1908. He is probably best known as the illustrator of the frontispiece to the first edition of Wind in the Willows, also published in 1908. Walford Graham Robertson (1866-1948) was a painter, theatre designer, writer, illustrator, art collector, authority on William Blake and friend of Walter Crane, Edward Burne-Jones, James McNeill Whistler, Ellen Terry, Sarah Bernhardt and Oscar Wilde, to name a few. He never married but was inspired to write this pageant by the infant daughter of his deceased friend, the painter Arthur Melville. The coloured illustrations are enchanting and certainly not rot.

        Portrait photograph of author Ian Maclaren, three-quarters length seated, in jacket with top hat in hand

      Philadelphia: C. Houstin Goudiss, 1907. Gelatin silver print, triple mounted, with C. Houston Goudis blindstamp and Goldensky blindstamp on mount, INSCRIBED by Maclaren beneath image ("Yours Faithfully, Ian MacLaren"). Image: 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. Fine, with some toning and edgewear to mount. Gelatin silver print, triple mounted, with C. Houston Goudis blindstamp and Goldensky blindstamp on mount, INSCRIBED by Maclaren beneath image ("Yours Faithfully, Ian MacLaren"). Image: 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. Maclaren was the pseudonym of Presbyterian pastor and Scotsman John Watson (1850-1907). He earned popular (but decidedly not critical) success in 1894 with BESIDE THE BONNIE BRIER BUSH - "The combination of sentimentality, humour, and religion in a rural Scottish setting proved a successful formula both in Britain and North America and Watson achieved instant fame" (ODNB).Maclaren also enjoyed great popularity in the United States as a lecturer-this photograph, by the prominent Philadelphia portrait photographer Elias Goldensky, captures Maclaren during his third and final American lecture tour. Often in ill-health, he would suffer a fatal case of tonsilitis during the tour and die unexpectedly in Iowa.

        Caracalla and Geta - Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema,.

      CARACALLA AND GETA: BEAR FIGHT IN THE COLISEUM, AD 203Heliogravure naar het schilderij (Opus CCCLXXXII) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema, uitgegeven in 1907 door Arthur Tooth & Sons. Linksonder gesigneerd met potlood door Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 64 x 78,5 cm.Op Caracalla and Geta staan beide broers, zonen van Septimius Severus, omringd door familieleden in de keizerlijke loge van het Colosseum. De spelen worden georganiseerd ter gelegenheid van het moment dat Septimius Severus in 203 AD de titel Caesar aan zijn zoon Caracalla verleent. Geta?s moeder is bezorgd dat haar tweede zoon niet de zelfde titel krijgt en geeft heimelijk intrigerende brieven aan een bode.De beren worden losgelaten, het spektakel staat op het punt te beginnen. De spanning in het amfitheater en tussen Caracalla en Geta is voelbaar.[De twee broers konden het slecht met elkaar vinden, kort na de dood van Septimius Severus laat Caracalla Geta vermoorden. Caracalla wordt daarmee de enige keizer over het Romeinse rijk.]Caracalla and Geta was het meest ambitieuze werk uit Alma-Tadema?s laatste jaren. Er staan meer dan 2.500 individueel geschilderde toeschouwers op. Als daar de figuren verborgen achter zuilen en guirlandes bij worden opgeteld en men dit extrapoleert naar de totale omvang van het Colosseum, klopt dit met de algemene aanname dat er zo?n 35.000 toeschouwers in het amfitheater konden plaatsnemen. De pers sprak in de tijd dat het schilderij gereedkwam met ontzag over dergelijke gedetailleerde kennis. Alma-Tadema was meer dan een kunstenaar alleen, de Nottingham Daily Guardian heeft het over de: ?Spirit of a scientist and archaeologist [but] not an artist!?Prijs: 4.150,- (incl. lijst).

        Dekorationsmalereien fur das Burgerhaus.

      - Stuttgart, Julius Hoffmann [1907?]. Folio 49x33cm, loose as issued in publisher's portfolio, decorated boards, printed label, (cloth spine detaching but lining and hinges firm enough); title and 24 chromolithograph plates printed by the firm Emil Hochdanz of Stuttgart. Title with some creasing round the very edges, two plates with insignificant crease in one corner. A handsome pattern book of modern painted interiors by the young designer, later expressionist painter and printmaker. Maybe this is all a bit tasteful but it is quite smart. If Lange has stuck to handsome tasteful interiors, perhaps gone a bit more Bavarian folk art, he might not have lost his professorship in textile design come 1933 and ended up in the Degenerate Art bin.

        Grant of arms, donated by Alfred Scott Scott-Galty, Garter, Principal King-of Arms and William Henry Weldon Esq. Norroy to George Buckworth-Herne-Soame, formerly Harrison (1872-1912).

      British Empire, London, d.d. 18 November 1907. Vellum charter, good condition. 60x52 cm. Manuscript text and calligraphy, with 4 hand coloured coats-of-arms amongst which that of Harrison. With the orginal signatures of the mentioned officials and their wax seals in two disc shaped copper casings. Encased in a made to fit oblong wooden case, with metal closing mechanism and clothed with red linen, decorated in gold with EVIIR initials and crowns. George Day Harrison (1872-1912) obtained a Royal licence which is included in this lot to change his name to Buckworth-Herne-Soame. The Harrison coat of arms had therefore to be changed into a combination of the Harrison and Buckworth-Herne-Soame coats of arms. This grant of arms officially changes the coat of arms. George Buckworth-Herne-Soame was apparently (chief) engineer of the South Potteries Water Works Company in Staffordshire although the grant of arms mentiones that he is lieutenant colonel of the Staffordshire Artillery Volunteers. The coat-of-arms bears the family motto: de mieulx je pense en mieulx. The grant explains that Harrison lives in Radford House in the parish of Stone in de county of Stafford. He married Evelyn, the second daughter of Sir Charles Buckworth-Herne-Soame Baronet late of Sheen in the county of Surrey. H97

Wallace's public refutation of Percival Lowell's theory of Martian canals and with it the possibility of life forms and even an advanced civilisation having existed on the red planet, the latter's book having been first published the year before. The work can be seen as an extension of Wallace's previous book "Man's Place in the Universe" of 1903, in which he argued that Earth was the only place in the universe that could support life due it to being the only planet which could sustain water in liquid form.

        SOUTH AFRICA: POTCHEFSTROOM (NORTH WEST PROVINCE). MAP OF POTCHEFSTROOM SHEWING FIFTEEN MILE RADIUS.

      Cyanotype on cotton cloth (Very Good, overall impressive condition for a map of its nature and size, some tack marks and small tears in blank margins of corners, minor fraying along edges, some wear along old folds, minor staining), 91 x 76.5 cm (36 x 30 inches). - Potchefstroom: ‘Tracing made from Sunprint by A. Mitchell’, June 14, 1907. An Exceptionally rare - seemingly unrecorded – and impressively large ‘Sunprint’ or cyanotype map on cotton cloth, depicting Major Robert Lyle McClintock’s advanced topographical survey of the environs of Potchefstroom, South Africa, executed in the period following the Second Anglo-Boer War, made in Potchefstroom after the original survey composed in Pretoria. - This excellent map showcases Major Robert Lyle McClintock’s 1907 advanced topographical survey of the environs of Potchefstroom, South Africa, the traditional de jure capital of the Transvaal, which here has been printed on cotton cloth by the gorgeous cyanotype, or ‘sunprint’, method. Indeed, this is one of the largest and most finely produced cyanotype maps were have ever encountered. The map is by far and away the most detailed and accurate survey of the Potchefstroom region even made to date, depicting topographical features with extreme precision, with elevations expressed by contour lines at 50-foot intervals. The city of Potchefstroom, with its neat grid of streets, occupies the centre of the map, while the railway to Johannesburg (to the northeast) runs to the west of town. The ‘Cantonment’ (local army barracks), is located to the northwest of the city, while the ‘Government Experimental Farm’ and the ‘Mooibank Settlement’ are located to the southwest. Elsewhere, the map labels dozens of rural homesteads, properties and major topographical features. The ‘Reference’ (lower left margin) explains symbols for Roads; Tracks; Farm Boundaries, Homesteads / Houses; Fences; Dry Water Courses; ‘Kaffir Crawls’ [an archaic, politically incorrect term for a native South African cattle enclosure]; Heights above the area’s mean sea level of 4,242; Dam Pans; Telegraph Lines and Inter-Colonial Boundaries. The present cyanotype map is noted as being a ‘Tracing made from Sunprint by A. Mitchell, Potchefstroom, 14 – 6 - 07’ (lower left corner), having been copied from McClintock’s original manuscript or printed survey, which had been composed in Pretoria earlier that same year (we have not been able to trace any records of a Pretoria manuscript or a printed edition), as indicated by the note on the present map, ‘Compiled in the office of the General Staff, Army Headquarters, SA, from the latest available information. / R.L. McClintock Bt Major / Pretoria Feby 1907’ (lower right corner). The survey represented on the present map was one of many commissioned by the General Staff of the British Army in South Africa, headquartered in Pretoria, of locations in the Transvaal and Orange River Colony, provinces that had been recently conquered from the Afrikaners during the Second Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902). McClintock was an especially esteemed engineer and veteran of the war, and it is was only fitting that he was chosen to survey the Potchefstroom area, which was one of the most important of all the Transvaal mapping projects. .

        Istoriko-revoliutsionnyi al'manakh izdatel'stva "Shipovnik." Pod obshchei redaktsiei V. L. Burtseva [Historical revolutionary almanac of the publisher "Shipovnik", edited by V. L. Burtsev].

      St. Petersburg, Izdatel'stvo "Shipovnik"; tip. "Delo", [1907]. - 382, XXVIII pp. Twelve leaves of illustrations. Contemporary quarter calf with gilt title to spine (original wrappers not preserved). 8vo. A rare publication commemorating key milestones and figures of the Russian revolutionary movement. The print run was largely confiscated and destroyed by the Tsarist police, leaving only the few copies which had already been distributed. The reason is quite clear: aside from events such as the zemstvo reform of 1864 and the founding of the State Duma, the almanac also lists the dates of major terrorist attacks, assassinations, as well as mass uprisings, in addition to the publishing dates of important revolutionary journals, and the decisive trials or executions of early revolutionary martyrs. These are arranged in order, from January 1 through December 31, and range from the early 19th century through 1906. Many of the entries are by noted writers and activists, such as the expressionist Leonid Andreev, the realist Aleksandr Kuprin, or the future critic and Soviet cultural commissar Anatoly Lunacharsky. The book reproduces photographs of many relatively little-known terrorists, and is especially noteworthy for the lovingly executed calendar leaf illustrations for each month, which were executed in black and red by such noted artists as Mstislav Dobuzhinsky, Boris Anisfel'd, Ivan Bilibin, Boris Kustodiev, Eugene Lanceray, and Zinovii Grzhebin. The book was reprinted in 1917 as "Kalendar' russkoi revoliutsii" and appears equally uncommon as such. The Bernstein-Souvarine catalog lists only the 1917 re-edition (no. 131), but not this first edition. KVK and OCLC locate copies at Berkeley, Cambridge, Chicago, Hoover, Library of Congress, Madison-Wisconsin, Syracuse, as well as the German State Libraries in Berlin and Munich. - Binding gently rubbed; a few pages lightly finger-soiled; private bookplate; about very good.

        Pride and Prejudice

      London: J. M. Dent & Co.; E. P. Dutton & Co., New York,, 1907. With twenty-four coloured illustrations by C. E. Brock. Octavo. Original vellum, elaborate decoration and titles in gilt to spine and front cover, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, pictorial endpapers. Colour frontispiece with tissue-guard, vignette title page, and 22 colour plates by Brock. Front cover slightly sprung, browning to endpapers, slight nicks to endpaper edges; an excellent copy. First colour illustrated Brock edition, with previously unpublished plates, deluxe vellum issue. This is the second overall Brock edition, with his black and white illustrations used in Macmillan's 1895–7 series; with Brock illustrating Pride and Prejudice and Hugh Thomson illustrating the other five titles. A decade later, J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite, this time in colour, and to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. Dent's "Series of English Idylls" thus presents the first Brock illustrations for the complete Austen set and the first in colour. Though sometimes qualified as "chocolate-box", Brock's illustrations showed a sharp eye for characterisation and the ironic humour of Jane Austen's world. His drawings were also well-researched; he and his brother collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

Colombier quarto (15-3/4 x 11-3/4 in., 40 x 30 cm). Publisher's printed wrappers with hand-colored devices on front covers, top edges rough cut, others uncut, housed in four clamshell boxes covered in brown raw silk with brown morocco gilt-lettered spine labels.

This massive bibliography (the boxes 17 x 15 x 12-1/2 in. together and over 67 lbs.) was assessed at the Grolier Club’s 1981 exhibition “2000 Years of Bibliography” (taking its place among the 169 signal entries from Callimachus of Alexandria to the NUC Pre-1956 Imprints) as the most luxurious bibliographical publication of its century and one of penetrating scholarship. “Prince d'Essling, grandson of Andrea Masséna, Napoleon’s ablest marshal, and son of a passionate book collector, Prince François-Victor, assembled a vast collection of early Venetian woodcut books which served as the basis for his bibliography of Venetian illustrated books 1450-1525 (preceded by the description of a xylographic book and followed by a summary list of some noteworthy later volumes). It is the most exhaustive bibliographical study of illustrated books of any place, country, or period hitherto published and set new standards for descriptions.” (Breslauer, Bernard H., and Folter, Ronald, Bibliography, its history and development, New York: Grolier Club, 1984, no. 144, pp. 186-7) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
