Lit.: Staverman, Robinson Crusoë in Nederland (Groningen 1907); Kruseman, Aanteekeningen betreffende de boekhandel van Noord-Nederand in de 17e en 18e eeuw (Amsterdam 1893) Mateboer 974-01, 974-02, 975-03; Muller 162 (alleen 2e deel); Scheepers II, 496; Staverman A1; De Vries 228; Forum III, 1526 (2e deel) en 1527 (3e deel)"."Zeer zeldzame complete set van de eerste Nederlandse vertaling van 'Robinson Crusoë', ongetwijfeld een van de bekendste boeken uit de wereldliteratuur. Al direct na verschijning in 1719 was het een overweldigend succes. Ontelbare keren is het boek sindsdien herdrukt (in Engeland alleen al ongeveer 200 keer), vertaald, nagevolgd en verfilmd. De hoofdpersoon heeft zijn naam gegeven aan een literair genre, de robinsonade, waarmee een boek wordt aangeduid waarin het leven op een afgelegen plek centraal staat. Het enthousiasme waarmee 'Robinson Crusoë' werd ontvangen is waarschijnlijk vooral te danken aan de gedetailleerde beschrijvingen in een eenvoudige, onopgesmukte taal. Die maakten het verhaal voor het lezerspubliek van die tijd heel geloofwaardig: men beschouwde het algemeen als een waar gebeurde geschiedenis. Nog in hetzelfde jaar volgden de 'Farther adventures'. Dat mist het realistische karakter van het eerste deel, maar werd toch met onverminderd enthousiasme ontvangen. Het derde deel dat Defoe in 1720 publiceerde en dat hier in tweede druk wordt aangeboden , is van heel andere aard; het bevat wijsgerige en godsdienstige beschouwingen waarin weliswaar af en toe wordt gerefereerd aan de eerste twee delen, maar die in feite helemaal op zichzelf staan. Het is dan ook nooit populair geworden en maar zelden herdrukt. Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) heeft zeer veel geschreven, als literator, politiek pamflettist en journalist, maar als schrijver van 'Robinson Crusoë' wordt hij beschouwd als de vader van de roman in Engeland. De firma Janssoons van Waesberge was een van de belangrijkste uitgevers en drukkers van haar tijd. Zij was actief in Amsterdam van 1674 tot 1750. Kruseman: Haar drukkerij werd wat voortreffelijkheid aangaat gelijk gesteld met die van de Elsevier's en de Blaeu's. L0755"

        The Master Beast

      London Rebman Limited 1907 - The book is reasonably firmly bound in the publisher's red cloth, decorated in black, the cloth is stained and the corners and spine ends are rubbed and bumped. The text block is foxed and age browned, with tears and some loss to the edges of some pages. An excellent dystopian, anti-socialist novel set mainly in the year 2020, though with a long build up in the latter years of the late nineteenth century and the early years of the twentieth, indicating that the author had probably attended a number of socialist gatherings, been initially seduced and then reflected upon the dangers and felt compelled to write this novel. The brilliantly named Horace Newte prophesises a sudden German invasion, which will lead to the rise of socialism, but our hero is saved by the scientist father of the woman he loves shoving an experimental serum down his throat, which preserves him unscathed until the year 2020, where he of course immediately falls in love with the great granddaughter of the woman that he had loved in his own time. The dreary horrors of socialism are detailed: a Nietzschean superman figure, the leader of the party, of course inhabits Buckingham palace, women have of course become either mad or are sexually aggressive wild beasts, prepared to rip the throats out of their rivals with their teeth, and mass orgies(surprisingly graphically depicted) are as regular a feature of life as the end of the world predictions. Quite a brilliant novel, if a little crude, which is shockingly left off every list of twentieth century dystopian literature, a gross error in my opinion. It is a rarity as a first edition.

        Photo Album]: New England and Shriner's Party

      Massachusetts, Maine, Texas, Mexico 1907 - Oblong small quarto measuring 7" x 11". Brown cloth over paper boards with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 83 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.5" x 5" and 4.5" x 6.5" with captions. Very good photo album with tape repairs on the front board, tears, and slight bowing with near fine photographs.A photo album beginning around 1893 compiled by Mrs. Albert S. Long (Katherine Long) of Lawrence, Massachusetts with her card laid in. Her husband was a contractor and carpenter in the area and a member of the Shriners. The album begins with 18 cyanotypes of the family home, exterior and interior, dinner parties, their horse and carriage, and a group lounging on the porch. These also include cyanotypes of both Christmas 1893 and Christmas 1894 with images of their Christmas trees and the gifts placed underneath and on the trees. The Long's vacationed on Peake Island, Maine in 1895 with photos of Casco Bay, their vacation cottage, and sailing. One photo from this trip is trick image captioned "I want to shake hands with myself" and shows a photo of a man photo edited to look like he was facing himself. The album shows photos of Albert's work and the Long's favorite places and friends around New England. One of these photos is of a large house with a fence which is captioned, "the first school house Albert built." Other photos include Merrimack Falls and Lake, a friend's dinner party, and Tarbox School. The Long's were very interested in the warships that would dock in the area and photographed them. One of these photo shows the U.S.S. Raleigh in Casco Bay which was used during the Spanish American War and later World War I. Other warships include the Montgomery, the New York, and the Minneapolis. A photo captioned, "on board the warship" shows personnel and passengers milling about on the upper deck. Later photos from 1906 show the Longs with their new automobile posing around a dirt road.The final section of 40 photographs is from a Shriner's party the Long's were a part of during 1907. The group traveled around the United States and to Mexico and the West on a train visiting a variety of places and landmarks. They visited the Whirlpool rapids in Canada near Niagara Falls and the Niagara Falls bridge. The party is seen here in fancy dress and in elaborate hats posed in the rocks by the rapids. There is also an image taken of the Shriners on board the train. As they traveled West they photographed the homes of Mexicans in El Paso and horseback riding. The trip also took them to Arizona where they visited the Grand Canyon and Hopi Indian pueblos. One of these photos shows a small "Indian" boy with the canyon in the background. They continued on to California and took photos of the Pacific Ocean, palm trees, and a clam bake they attended. Katherine photographed Texas and Mexico and included a Bull Ring, a Mexican market, and a mission with men in large Mexican hats in the foreground. A remarkably attractive and interesting collection of both domestic and travel snapshot photography, many of the images are a bit larger than usual size, most likely taken by a well-to-do New England young woman.

        Loose Photo Album Pages]: Alabama

      Alabama 1907 - Six loose album pages containing 60 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring around 3" x 3", some with captions. Near fine photos with some fading.A collection of photos beginning in 1902 revolving around a family from Alabama. The earliest photos are taken in Selma and show images of the Schuh-Miller Lumber Company including a log train, their "first office," and the lumber yard itself. The most obvious inference is that these images were taken by one of the owners of the lumberyard. The next section of photos from 1903 show the family around their home. One of these photos shows the family's children posed with their African-American maids. An uncaptioned page shows some horse drawn wagons with animals including elephants which appear to be part of a circus. Other photos show African-Americans working on a railroad and another page of African-Americans on a Selma street. A page from 1907 shows the state funeral of Senator John Tyler Morgan. These photos are captioned "hearse containing Morgan's body," "Alabama National Guard leading Senator Morgan's funeral carriage," and "temporary tent over Morgan's grave."An interesting collection of photographs kept by an Alabama family at the turn of the century.

        Is Mars Habitable? A Critical Examination of Professor Percival Lowell's Book “Mars and Its Canal,” with an Alternative Explanation.

      London:: Macmillan, 1907.. 8vo. xii, 110, [2 ads.] pp. Frontis., 1 plate. Original green gilt-stamped cloth. Ownership signature of A.S. Heard. Fine. First edition. Contemporary riposte to the theories of Lowell regarding the possibility of life on Mars and the interpretation of canals on its surface. Written in refute to Percival Lowell's Mars and Its Canals, 1906, this treatise presents the author's belief that life, as we know it, cannot exist elsewhere in the universe. Wallace (1823-1913) was a brilliant creative thinker and naturalist. He rarely avoided controversy and was at his best while collecting evidence against an argument. By doing so, he greatly enriched science. Charles H. Smith noted about this volume, “For many years one of Wallace's least remembered books, Is Mars Habitable? is increasingly being recognized as one of the first examples of the proper application of the scientific method to the study of extraterrestrial atmospheres and geography--that is, as one of the pioneer works in the field of exobiology.”

        [ORIGINAL PROSPECTUS FOR] THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN BEING A SERIES OF VOLUMES PICTURING AND DESCRIBING THE INDIANS OF THE UNITED STATES AND ALASKA

      [Cambridge, Ma, 1907. [20]pp., plus two photographic plates. Large quarto. Original printed wrappers, sewn as issued. Wrappers somewhat dust soiled, with short split at head of spine and light edge wear. Internally clean, images fine. Nearly very good. A scarce large promotional pamphlet advertising Edward Curtis' photographic masterpiece, THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN. Curtis was fascinated with the story of the American Indian from an early age, honing his knowledge of them and skill as a photographer on numerous scientific expeditions in the 1890s. With the enthusiastic backing of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword), Curtis evolved his plan for a comprehensive work which would illustrate his romantic vision of American Indian life before the disastrous impact of European contact. He obtained the patronage of J. Pierpont Morgan, whose support (and later that of his son), enabled the project to go forward. What had originally been projected to take five or six years stretched to twenty-three, consumed $1,200,000 (a third in subsidy from the Morgans), and crawled to a conclusion only in 1930, leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, he succeeded in accomplishing his grand design, and his work remains his monument. This prospectus is printed entirely on Van Gelder paper, the stock used for the majority of the run of the printed set. It contains a description of the project and an outline of the publishing plan, the one page foreword and endorsement by Theodore Roosevelt, the general introduction to the work written by Curtis, and several sample text leaves from the first volume of the series. It also includes examples of two photogravures from that volume, "The Oath - Apsaroke" and "Navajo Medicine-Man." Rare in and of itself, this prospectus is an attractive sample for one of the most expensive and difficult to obtain works in the field of Western Americana. REESE, BEST OF THE WEST 234 (ref).

      Poughkeepsie, New York. circa 1907-1910s. Oblong octavo. Brown leather over paper boards measuring 8" x 6". A collection of 144 sepia toned and black and white photographs affixed to stiff black paper with a very few loose ones laid in, contains only a single caption. Various sizes including 2" x 3", 4" x 3.25", 3.5" x 3.5", and others. Good only with detached but present boards, worn edges, heavy rubbing, and the first page detached, photos are clear with very slight curling. From the single caption and photos of a college campus, most notably what appears to be the Thompson Memorial Library, the album is presumably from a woman attending Vassar College. The album depicts dorm rooms as well as women picnicking, hanging bird houses, and posing around the campus. In one group a throng on women is marching around carrying a sign that says "1907." Further along in the book are photos of boating trips, bicycle repairs, and a few night shots, one of which is of a bolt of lightening. .

Various sizes including 2" x 3", 4" x 3.25", 3.5" x 3.5", and others. Good only with detached but present boards, worn edges, heavy rubbing, and the first page detached, photos are clear with very slight curling. From the single caption and photos of a college campus, most notably what appears to be the Thompson Memorial Library, the album is presumably from a woman attending Vassar College. The album depicts dorm rooms as well as women picnicking, hanging bird houses, and posing around the campus. In one group a throng on women is marching around carrying a sign that says "1907." Further along in the book are photos of boating trips, bicycle repairs, and a few night shots, one of which is of a bolt of lightening. .

        THE SHORTER POEMS OF ROBERT BRIDGES

      London: Geo. Bell & Sons, 1907. n. In an extremely pleasing and ably executed amateur binding, this is an edition of an extremely popular poetry collection with ties to the Bloomsbury Group both through its author and its former owner. Poet Robert Bridges (1844-1930) had written verse since childhood, and continued to do so while studying and practicing medicine. He was friends with a number of writers, musicians, and other artists, including architect Alfred Waterhouse, whose daughter he married. Through his younger wife, Bridges became acquainted with a new generation of literary artists--among them Roger Fry, Virginia Woolf, W. B. Yeats, Ezra Pound, Robert Graves, and E. M. Forster--to whom he gave his support and encourgement. This collection of his shorter works was first published in 1890 and often reprinted (including in augmented form in 1896 and after). This popular acceptance, followed by the impressive sales of his "Poetical Works" (1912), was a major factor in his appointment as Poet Laureate in 1913. The very pleasing binding here is well designed and executed with considerable skill, though we do not know the identity of the binder. Marianne Tidcombe suggests that it may have been done by a pupil of Sangorski & Sutcliffe--perhaps male, based on the tools and design. Our former owner, literary reviewer and drama critic Desmond MacCarthy (1877-1952), had friends in common with Bridges, including Fry, Woolf, and Forster, so it is quite possible that the two were acquainted, despite the difference in their ages. MacCarthy's wife Molly is credited with coining the nickname "Bloomsbury Group.". 175 x 111 mm. (6 7/8 x 4 3/8"). 2 p.l., 116 pp., [1] leaf (ads). VERY PRETTY CONTEMPORARY DARK GREEN MOROCCO, INLAID AND GILT, covers with fillet frame, inlaid red morocco tulip cornerpieces, large central oval of gracefully entwined gilt vines and leaves terminating in red morocco tulips and accented with gilt circlets (the covers with a total of 52 inlaid blooms), raised bands, spine compartments adorned with gilt leaves and circlets, gilt titling and turn-ins (rear turn-in with binder's stamp of "B L M"[?]), top edge gilt. Front free endpaper with ink ownership inscription of Desmond MacCarthy, dated December 1, 1947 (see below). Spine sunned to an olive brown (as almost inevitably with green morocco), boards slightly splayed, isolated spots of foxing to opening leaves, two leaves with tiny marginal holes, other trivial imperfections, but a very pretty copy in excellent condition, fresh and clean internally, and the attractive binding bright and with only minimal wear.In an extremely pleasing and ably executed amateur binding, this is an edition of an extremely popular poetry collection with ties to the Bloomsbury Group both through its author and its former owner.

This chart shows his progress up to Bubiyan" (Slot, The Origins of Kuwait [1991], p. 18). - Occasional slight foxing; spine broken; plates loose. B. J. Slot, The Arabs of the Gulf 1602-1784, p. 11.

        Íosagán agus Sgéalta Eile

      Dublin: Conradh na Gaeilge. Good+. 1907. First Edition; First Printing. Softcover. 3 p.l., 117 & [2] pages; Publisher's brown pictorial wrappers, title page printed in red and black (dated "1907"), edges of the text trimmed rough. Sectional titles to the stories with b/w illustrations & four hors-texte color plates by Beatrice Elvery (all present). The title page and text are entirely in Irish, but for a glossary (Foclóir) at the end [pp. (95) - 117]. "Only the more difficult words, or words which illustrate some peculiarity of local usage in pronunciation, vocabulary or usage, are included in this Foclóir." As a supplement to this glossary, an early owner of this copy has written English translations of many words and a few grammatical notes on many pages of the text. These annotations are entirely in pencil. Our copy of his rare little book, 'Íosagán agus Sgéalta Eile,' is sound and interesting, markings and all. We have decided to leave them, as their presence in this copy does seem to fulfill and embody Pádraig Pearse's aim in writing and publishing these stories. Certainly, a buyer might have a different reaction to this annotation, which affects some portion of at least 48 pages; the pencil notes are not written with a heavy hand, and a competent conservator could make these vanish. It should also be mentioned that there is a signature (in Irish) with a brief note on the recto of the front blank leaf, one sectional title has evidence of careless opening at the deckle of its fore-edge (no text affected), there are three or four lower corners of leaves which had been turned in at one point (now flat, with no breaks or damage to the leaves) and there is a tiny splash of blue (paint? ink?) on the blank verso of the sectional title to the last story. The wrappers are complete and integral, but there is some fraying at the spine ends and some minor breaks along the yapped (overhanging) edges of the wrappers. Pictures sent upon request. A rare, early book by Pádraig Pearse, sometimes known as Patrick H. Pearse, writing here under his Irish name: Pádraig (Anraí) Mac Piarais. Pearse, [1879 – 3 May 1916] was an Irish teacher, barrister, poet, writer, nationalist and political activist who was one of the leaders of the Easter Rising in 1916. He was declared "President of the Provisional Government" of the Irish Republic in one of the bulletins issued by the Rising's leaders, although his precise title is still under some dispute. But, unquestionably, as a tribute to his skills at public speaking and his power as a writer in both English and Irish, Pádraig was chosen by the Irish Republican Brotherhood leader Tom Clarke to be the spokesman for the Rising. On Easter Monday, 24 April 1916, it was Pearse who proclaimed a Republic from the steps of the General Post Office and headquarters of the revolutionaries. Nine days later, he and his brother Willie were executed by a British firing squad along with 14 others. Pádraig Pearse, along with Thomas Clarke and Thomas MacDonagh, was the first to be shot. General Sir John Maxwell, commanding the British forces in Ireland, sent a telegram to British Prime Minister Asquith, advising him not to return the bodies of Pádraig and Willie Pearse to their family, saying: "Irish sentimentality will turn these graves into martyrs' shrines to which annual processions will be made which would cause constant irritation in this country." For many Irish, Pearse is still the face of the Easter 1916 Rising. Early in his short life, Pearse developed a strong passion for the Irish language (which was native to his mothers family, from Co. Meath). In 1896, at the age of sixteen, he joined the Gaelic League (Conradh na Gaeilge) which was then just three years old, and in 1903 at the age of 23, he became editor of its newspaper An Claidheamh Soluis ("The Sword of Light"). In 1899, he taught a weekly class in Irish in the then-Jesuit University College Dublin, where James Joyce, (who was three years younger than Pádraig) was one of his pupils. The promotion of Irish for both artistic and political reasons was clearly the central aim of his youth. In 1905, his book Poll an Piobaire (The Piper's Cave) was published, Also, in that year, Pearse visited Belgium specifically for the purpose of seeing how a bi-lingual society and educational system might function. In 1906 Pearse published some prose poems (writing as Colm Ó Conaire). The next year, the present little book of Irish stories - Íosagán agus Sgéalta Eile was published. The title page and text are entirely in Irish, but for a glossary (Foclóir) at the end [pp. (95) - 117]. Both in matters of style and structure, these Irish stories of Pearse break new ground. He used the vernacular language, and also abandoned the formulaic openings usually found in the tales transmitted as Irish folklore. An early critic found this new direction set by Pearse for Irish literature disquieting. Dr. Richard Heneby (a native Irish speaker) found the explosive opening of the first story in 'Íosagán agus Sgéalta Eile' objectionable. In fact, he wrote that this whole collection of stories was "particularly vile, although apparently intended as a classic." Padraig Pearse's former student James Joyce had ample reason to cultivate his connoisseurship of anti-modernist criticism. Had he read this opinion of his old teacher's stories, Joyce probably would have been motivated to pull out the old foclóir and struggle through 'Íosagán.' As it happened, Pearse rubbed Joyce the wrong way and the younger man soon left Pearse's Irish class. Joyce's old friend Frank Budgen later wrote that Joyce objected to Pearse's running down of the English language at the expense of Irish. The particular point of parting seems to be over Pearse's denegration of the English word "thunder" as weak and inadequate compaired with the Irish "tórnach" (or toirneach). Joyce, on the other hand, especially loved "thunder" for its onomatopoeic rolling through the mouth. Both are spendid words... (Modern linguists would suggest that they are branches from the same old source -- a Proto-Indo-European root which gives us words for thunder, and a few relatives (for instance the Old English "Thunores Dæg" - which we call Thursday). Joyce soon switched to the study of Norwegian. And Pearse became more and more interested in politics and Irish nationalism. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. .

Minor wear and dust-soiling, faint coffee ring to front cover and front blank. Very good. In a tan burlap chemise and slipcase, gilt leather label. A rare, privately-printed, and handsomely-illustrated account of sport and adventure in the wilds of Wyoming. "It is considered by authorities as among the scarcest of hunting narratives.

Streeter described it as "a very interesting narrative, illustrated with photographs, of a hunting trip which took place in September, 1905." Only ten copies are listed in OCLC, and it is far rarer still to encounter in the marketplace. In 1937, Eberstadt stated that no copy had ever appeared at auction; only three have appeared since.

        PHOTOGRAPHIC POST CARD OF PAWNEE BILL

      N. P.: Privately photographed, n. d. (ca 1907-1910)., 1907-1910. First edition. 13.8 cm x 8.8 cm [5 7/16" x 3 1/2"] production of a circa 1888 photographic image of Pawnee Bill also known as Gordon William Lillie (1860-1942). Lillie, a showman, was at one time in his life a teacher in an industrial school at the Pawnee Agency in Indian Territory, where he learned the Pawnee language. He later was introduced to Buffalo Bill Cody where he was hired as interpreter for Pawnees taking part in the show that year. In 1888, he organized his own wild west show which toured briefly and then collapsed. In 1890 he again organized a wild west show and this time it prospered. With the show Lillie toured for almost twenty years, occasionally in Europe. From 1908-1913 he was a partner with Cody in the latter's productions, the two shows having merged; when the partnership was dissolved, Lillie returned to his 2,000 acre ranch near Pawnee, Oklahoma. He was active in work among the Pawnee Indians and for the perpetuation of the buffalo and established an Old Town and Indian Trading Post for the public, near Pawnee. His own place was called Pawnee Bill's Buffalo Ranch. We are not aware of other versions of this image during any era. A fine, splendid and clear image of Pawnee Bill.
