        [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.

        OUR BABY BOOK

      Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, (1907). First edition Bound in blue cloth with beautiful color pictorial pastedown on the front cover. Small quarto, unpaginated. Twelve glorious full page illustrations and ornamental borders in the Art Nouveau style. This book, along with Fanny Cory's Mother Goose, represent a particularly poignant time in the author's family life and both are considered amongst her best work. After losing her first baby in childbirth and suffering other deep personal losses Fanny entered a period of profound grief. She struggled to regain her natural sense of joy, eventually giving birth to three children and creating illustrations that captured her hard won happiness in domestic life. This book is not only an exceptional work of art but a mirror into the artist's home and heart, written and illustrated from her own intimate personal experiences as a mother . It has become a very elusive and sought after title for collectors of finely illustrated books from the turn of the last century. Aside from some very light flecking on the front cover, not affecting the pictorial pastedown, this is a very good copy.

        Typed Letter, signature excised, to Andrew Carnegie as President of The National Arbitration and Peace Congress

      Washington DC april 5 1907 Washington, DC, april 5, 1907. 4to. 6-1/2 pp. on White House stationery. Tan cloth chemise, signature neatly cut from last leaf (not affecting text), else fine. Morison, ed., The Letters of Theodore Roosevelt, vol. V, 638-42 . An important letter from President Theodore Roosevelt, summarizing his views on the goal of abolishing war, to Andrew Carnegie, who was then the President of the National Arbitration and Peace Congress, and ultimately the creator in 1910 of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Roosevelt expresses his regret at not being able to be with Carnegie at the International Peace Conference at the Hague: "- I much regret my inability to be present with you - First and foremost, I beseech you to remember that tho it is our bounden duty to work for peace, yet it is even more our duty to work for righteousness and justice - Harm and not good would result if the most advanced nations, those in which most freedom for the individual is combined with most efficiency in securing orderly justice as between individuals, should by agreement disarm and place themselves at the mercy of other peoples less advanced, of other peoples still in the stage of military barbarism or military despotism. Anything in the nature of general disarmament would do harm and not good if it left the civilized and peace-loving peoples, those with the highest standards of municipal and international obligation and duty, unable to shock the other peoples who have no such standards, who acknowledge no such obligations - These warnings that I have uttered do not mean that I believe we can do nothing to advance the cause of international peace. On the contrary, I believe that we can do much to advance it, provided we act with sanity, with self-restraint, with power; which must be the prime qualities in the achievement of any reform. The nineteenth century saw, on the whole, a real and great advance in the standard of international conduct, both as among civilized nations and by strong nations toward weaker and more backward peoples. The twentieth century will, I believe, witness a much greater advance in the same direction - More important than reducing the expense of the implements of war is the question of reducing the possible causes of war, which can most effectually be done by substituting other methods than war for the settlement of disputes. Of those other methods the most important which is now attainable is arbitration -" A carefull, lengthy, and eloquent statement from this President, who, perhaps more than any others in the nation's history, has been charcterized as an imperialist and a warmonger

        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

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.

        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
