        Eigenh. Brief mit U. [Berlin], 11. IV. 1907.

      1907. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Kondolenzschreiben an die Witwe des sozialdemokratischen Politikers Ignaz Auer, der eben im Alter von 61 Jahren verstorben war: "[...] Aber alles Weh der Scheidung mildert sich in dem stolzen Gedanken, ihn besessen zu haben, mit seiner milden Weisheit, mit seinem klugen Rath, mit seinem treuen Herzen. Wie er sich treu blieb in persönlicher Anspruchslosigkeit in den Tagen der Noth und in den stolzen Tagen des Aufstiegs unserer Partei, wie er sich treu blieb, ob eine Richtung bekämpfte, nur Sozialdemokrat, ohne alle Nebentendenz, das ist tief eingeschrieben in unsere Geschichte [...]". - Im linken Rand gelocht (keine Textberührung).

        SCAPEGOATS OF THE EMPIRE the Story of the Bushveldt Carbineers

      D. W. Paterson Co, 1907, Hard Cover, Book Condition: Very Good with no dust jacket, Second Edition. 240pp; + 2 pages of press reviews, with 6 of the 8 black and white photographic illustrations (lacks "Frontispiece" and "The Graves of Morant & Handcock"). Found in terrible condition, this has been restored retaining all the original cloth covering that was salvageable, the spine being the worse affected, it is now a presentable volume. "Scapegoats of the Empire" by George R. Witton was first published in June 1907 and although it was reprinted at least twice that year, it is today an extremely rare book with very few copies in existence outside major libraries. This is because there is still some mystery surrounding the circumstances of the book's publication. Stories persist that the Australian government of the day were so nervous that the book's contents reflected badly on Lord Kitchener (who was then one of the foremost heroes of the Empire) that they caused all copies of the book to be seized from D. W. Paterson, the original publishers and printers, prior to its publication. Another rumour abounded to the effect that the government bought up copies as they were published in order to prevent the truth from getting out and, more prosaically, it has also been suggested that there was a fire in the publisher's warehouse in Melbourne which destroyed all copies. Digital images available on request. ; 190 x 125mm; 240 pages

        Archive of 13 Autograph Letters Signed ("Gertrude Atherton" or "G.A."), to Harper Brother's editor James MacArthur

      London, Munich, New York, and Mt. Tamalpais [CA] 1907 - 55 pp. 8vo. An archive of letters from Gertrude Atherton (1857-1948) to James MacArthur of Harper Brothers, publisher of Atherton's Rulers of Kings (1904); The Travelling Thirds (1905); The Bell in the Fog (1905); Ancestors (1907); and California: An Intimate History (1914). The letters concern proposed works or works in progress, payment terms, plot lines, publicity, etc. Excerpts:January 28, [1904]: "Would the Harpers give me 20 per ct for every new novel and $5000 advance? I had $3000 advance on The Conqueror, so this does not seem an immodest request. I suppose they ? would be able to bring it out this spring- Macmillan & Co will put it to press here in about a month-if I can get it finished-and I could send over proof ? The title is Rulers of Kings, the idea, the conflict between the two greatest forces in the world-money in America & royalty in Europe. . . ."February 10, [1904]: "Thank you so much for arranging about Rulers of Kings." February 29, [1904]: "Must I have a new picture taken? Very well I'll try in this week ? I hope to get off the last proofs on Wednesday and if you could copyright it before the 7th so much the better. This is such a propitious time for it here. . . . I have told a number of public men about the book and . . . all think it will make a sensation. One thing I have accomplished . . . is that all the men in public life read my books, particularly Senator North and The Conqueror. . . ."February 28, [1907]: "I can see your smile when I tell you that I ? really have settled on a title at last. It is Ancestors?."MacArthur joined Harper Brothers as a literary advisor and editor in 1901 following stints at the Bookman (New York) and Doubleday, and remained there until his death in 1909. Atherton (1857-1948), who also wrote under the names Asmodeus and Frank Lin, "produced thirty-four novels, seven short fiction collections, six history-based books and essays, and many newspaper and magazine articles on feminism, politics, war, and other contemporary issues. By fictitionally portraying the "new woman" at the threshold of the twentieth century, she highlighted the psychological problems facing women in changing societies in both America and Europe. Atherton's work concerns subjects similar to those of authors such as Mary Wilkins Freeman, Edith Wharton, Ellen Glasgow, and Willa Cather, although her work is richer in variety of theme and background" (American National Biography).

        The Famous Hypothetical Question in the Trial of Harry K Thaw..

      1907. Thaw, Harry K.. Thaw, Harry K. Insanity Defense Prevails in the Thaw's Trial for the Murder of Stanford White [Trial]. Thaw, Harry Kendall [1871-1947], Defendant. Jerome, William Travers [1859-1934], District Attorney. Francis P. Garvan [1875-1937], Assistant District Attorney The Famous Hypothetical Question in the Trial of Harry K. Thaw for the Murder of Stanford White. [New York]: Boehm & Rathbone, [1907]. [vii], 39 pp. Portrait frontispiece (of Evelyn Nesbit Thaw) with tissue overlay. Illustrated throughout with black and white and color images and facsimiles. Quarto (11" x 8"). Reversed calf with yapp edges, gilt title panel to front board, marbled endpapers. Light rubbing to edges, some wear to foot of spine, partial crack to text block between front free endpaper and adjacent endleaf. Light toning to text, faint offsetting from color images in a few places. A very good copy. $2,500. * "Edition-De-Luxe" limited to 250 copies, this No. 21. With marginal illustrations and facsimiles on every page. Presented as a lavishly-illustrated "Statement of the Facts," this work, written by the District Attorney, William Travers Jerome, and an Assistant District Attorney, Francis P. Garvan, uses court transcripts to form a narrative about Harry K. Thaw's murder of the great architect Stanford White and the subsequent trial. Henry K. Thaw, millionaire with a history of mental instability, married Evelyn Nesbit, a young New York showgirl who had previously been involved with White. Plagued by jealousy, Thaw repeatedly beat and raped Nesbit in an attempt to erase any memory of the prior relationship. Then, in 1906, at a Madison Square Garden premiere, Thaw shot Stanford White three times at close range, without provocation. At the trial, Thaw's lawyers offered an insanity defense. After the first jury was unable to reach a verdict, the second jury acquitted Thaw on the grounds of temporary insanity, making this case one of the most perplexing and controversial of the 20th century. As a sensational trial involving a millionaire, a famous architect and a glamorous former showgirl, this case inspired countless contemporary newspaper articles, pamphlets and scandal sheets. It was also the subject of several subsequent studies and fictional works, such as the 1955 movie The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing and E.L. Doctorow's novel Ragtime (1975). OCLC loc.

Als Gründungsmitglied der Münchner Secession entwickelte er gemeinsam mit Dill und Hölzel eine effiziente Methode des Kunstunterrichtes, die den Schülern größtmöglichen Freiraum zur eigenen Entfaltung gewähren sollte. Im Jahre 1900 wurde er als Leiter einer Meisterklasse für Malerei an die Zeichenakademie in Graz berufen, an der er bis 1923 als weithin bekannter und sehr geschätzter Lehrer wirkte.

        Bangaroo : the harmless and fascinating boomerang game

      Bristol, U.K. : W.R. Powell, printer [for Bangaroo Manufacturing Co.], [c.1907]. Box, 310 x 195 x 25 mm, the lid with pictorial paper onlay, featuring a design of a bounding kangaroo signed and dated in the image at lower left 'Frank Stonelake - 07', the title in bold red and black lettering, at the foot of the design the printed captions 'Size 1 : for indoors' and 'Registered & provisionally protected'; a label printed in red on the inside of the box reads: 'CAUTION. "BANGAROO". This game has been Patented and Registered in Great Britain and abroad. Any form of infringement will be summarily dealt with. (Signed) Bangaroo Manufacturing Co. 67a, Park Street, Bristol'; the box containing two shaped, flat figures of thick card, printed in colour and depicting a kangaroo (obviously the "target") and an Aborigine in the act of throwing a boomerang which is attached to his right hand by the original black cotton thread; and a boomerang-shaped box (diameter 180 mm) housing two miniature plywood boomerangs, stamped in red and blue 'BANGAROO' (one of the boomerangs with repairs), together with two flat metal pieces (each 170 mm in length) engraved 'BANGAROO REGD. PROD.' and with eyelets at one end, one with the original string attachment; the inside of this boomerang-shaped box with a printed label that reads: 'Bangaroo Manufacturing Co. No. 1 Size Complete 3/6 / Single Boomerangs 9d Projectors 6d / Boomerang and Projector in Case 1/6; No. 2 Size for Lawn or Hall / Boomerangs 1/6 / Projectors 1/- / Complete 6/6'; the game appears complete, and although it has been played at some stage, both the outer box and its contents are in good condition overall. This Edwardian period game is completely unrecorded. We can locate no other examples in collections in Great Britain or elsewhere, of either the 'Size 1' or 'Size 2' variants which are advertised on the label. The present example was perhaps the prototype version of a game that never reached the full commercial production stage. Frank Stonelake, the game's designer (and possibly its creator) was a member of the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol's first art gallery. He is most noted for his oil paintings of hunting and equestrian scenes. The cultural significance of the boomerang, both as object and image, cannot be overestimated. As renowned anthropologist Philip Jones has observed: 'In the European imagination, the boomerang has always expressed a unique quality associated with Australia as a land of paradox. This remarkable object, both a weapon and a toy, which can return to strike its thrower as easily as its target, seems of a kind with the duck-billed platypus, the egg-laying echidna, the bounding kangaroo, or plants which spring into life after bushfires." (Jones, Philip. Boomerang : behind an Australian icon.Adelaide : Wakefield Press, 2004, p.4)

        [PROHIBITION] Scrapbook relating to the career of U.S. politician William Sulzer, 1907-1918

      Thick octavo, contemporary cloth boards, front paste-down inscribed 'Presented to the University of Tasmania by Emile Carbonnel of N.Y.' (with University of Tasmania deaccession stamp), approximately [70] leaves, filled entirely with laid-in election pamphlets and political speeches, newspaper cuttings and ephemera dating to the period 1907-1918, the later material relating to Sulzer's American Party (including the Certificate of Incorporation of the Party) and the Prohibition Party, and with an article by Sulzer on the Bahai faith (Sulzer was a follower); fine and free from foxing. Following a brief career as a lawyer, Sulzer entered politics in the 1880s. Between 1894 and 1912 he served as a progressive Democrat congressman. At the end of 1912 he was elected Governor of New York, but in 1913 was impeached, facing charges of perjury and fraud. He was removed from office in October that year. In a political comeback, he organised the American Party in 1914, and with support from the Prohibition Party, whose platform Sulzer completely endorsed, he managed to remove the Democrats from power in New York, in an act of political revenge.In 1916 Sulzer unsuccessfully campaigned for the Prohibition Party’s nomination for President, and included in the present archive is his 1916 election pamphlet, titled Peace, Progress, Prosperity, Patriotism and Prohibition. Emile Carbonnel appears to have been Sulzer's number one supporter: he compiled numerous scrapbooks devoted to Sulzer and presented them to libraries in Britain, the United States and Australia. Among the collections which hold a Carbonnel / Sulzer scrapbook areThe University of Glasgow Library; Queen's University Library, Belfast; Leeds University Library; University of Aberdeen Library; Cardiff University Library; Houghton Library, Harvard University; New York State Library, and University of Pennsylvania Library.

        The South Polar Times (3 volumes with subscribers' broadside)

      London : Smith, Elder & Co., 1907-14. Three volumes, quarto, original gilt-lettered blue cloth with pictorial inlay; various paginations, extensively illustrated with chromolithographs, all edges gilt, foxing to preliminaries but the text clean and bright, the bindings tight; the first two volumes limited to 250 copies, the third volume limited to 350 copies; housed in stunning custom made felt-lined slipcases, the gilt lettering reproducing the cover designs. Accompanied by the original letterpress broadside advertising for subscribers, single sheet printed recto, 235 x 155mm, drop title The National Antarctic Expedition "The South Polar Times", announcing a proposal to issue a facsimile of the original newspaper. "If there are subscribers sufficient to cover the expense, it is proposed to issue a limited number of copies in special binding in two, three, or four handsome quarto volumes (as is found most convenient), reproducing the original typewriting and illustrations, both coloured and black and white, in absolute facsimile. The price will be five guineas'. A spectacular set with the utterly rare subscribers' broadside. The South Polar Times reproduces the unique hand made newspaper created monthly by members of the British National Antarctic Expedition in 1902-03, edited by Sir Ernest Shackleton and Louis Bernacchi, with literary and artistic contributions by members of the Expedition. At least three variants of the illustrated prospectus are recorded (Spence); however, this plain broadside, issued to gauge interest in subscriptions, appears to be unique. An exceptional set.

        Photograph Signed

      np: np, 1907. First Edition. Fine. HUGE SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH OF THEODORE ROOSEVELT AS PRESIDENT, INSCRIBED TO ROOSEVELT'S PHYSICIAN AND CLOSE FRIEND. The large image depicts the bespectacled president seated at his desk holding some papers. Roosevelt's personal inscription, in deep black fountain pen upon the reverse blank portion of the papers in his hand in this image reads, in full:   "To Alexander Lambert with the affectionate regard of his friend -- Theodore Roosevelt -- March 4th 1907".   In his second term as president, Theodore Roosevelt inscribed this image to his close friend and family physician Alexander Lambert. Not only was the relationship between the two well-documented in numerous letters and telegrams, but also the doctor accompanied Roosevelt on several of the president's famous hunts.   While 1907 marked the end of his two-term presidency, Roosevelt accomplished much as the nation's 26th president. "The administration of Theodore Roosevelt was in some respects the first modern presidency. It is with Roosevelt that the most distinctive twentieth-century characteristics of the executive office emerged as more or less permanent traits. Roosevelt put the presidency and the federal government at the center of peacetime political action" (Encyclopedia.com). Beautifully framed under UV-protected museum glass. Size: Approx. 11x14 inches (photograph alone); 18.5x21.5 inches (framed). Original sepia-toned silver print. Two small chips at the top corners (not visible under the frame); otherwise in nearly perfect condition. Inscription crisp and dark, with a particularly fine example of Roosevelt's signature (the signature by itself is 3.25 inches long). AN EXTREMELY RARE OVER-SIZED PHOTO, WITH OUTSTANDING ROOSEVELT INSCRIPTION AND SIGNATURE.

      London, Munich, New York, and Mt. Tamalpais [CA], 1907. 55 pp. 8vo. Old folds. Very Good. 55 pp. 8vo. An archive of letters from Gertrude Atherton (1857-1948) to James MacArthur of Harper Brothers, publisher of Atherton's Rulers of Kings (1904); The Travelling Thirds (1905); The Bell in the Fog (1905); Ancestors (1907); and California: An Intimate History (1914). The letters concern proposed works or works in progress, payment terms, plot lines, publicity, etc. Excerpts:January 28, [1904]: "Would the Harpers give me 20 per ct for every new novel and $5000 advance? I had $3000 advance on The Conqueror, so this does not seem an immodest request. I suppose they … would be able to bring it out this spring- Macmillan & Co will put it to press here in about a month-if I can get it finished-and I could send over proof … The title is Rulers of Kings, the idea, the conflict between the two greatest forces in the world-money in America & royalty in Europe. . . ."February 10, [1904]: "Thank you so much for arranging about Rulers of Kings..." February 29, [1904]: "Must I have a new picture taken? Very well I'll try in this week … I hope to get off the last proofs on Wednesday and if you could copyright it before the 7th so much the better. This is such a propitious time for it here. . . . I have told a number of public men about the book and . . . all think it will make a sensation. One thing I have accomplished . . . is that all the men in public life read my books, particularly Senator North and The Conqueror. . . ."February 28, [1907]: "I can see your smile when I tell you that I … really have settled on a title at last. It is Ancestors…."MacArthur joined Harper Brothers as a literary advisor and editor in 1901 following stints at the Bookman (New York) and Doubleday, and remained there until his death in 1909. Atherton (1857-1948), who also wrote under the names Asmodeus and Frank Lin, "produced thirty-four novels, seven short fiction collections, six history-based books and essays, and many newspaper and magazine articles on feminism, politics, war, and other contemporary issues. By fictitionally portraying the "new woman" at the threshold of the twentieth century, she highlighted the psychological problems facing women in changing societies in both America and Europe. Atherton's work concerns subjects similar to those of authors such as Mary Wilkins Freeman, Edith Wharton, Ellen Glasgow, and Willa Cather, although her work is richer in variety of theme and background" (American National Biography).

        A Narrative of the Missions of the United Brethren among the Delaware and Mohegan Indians from Its Commencement in the Year 1740 to the Close of the Year 1808

      Cleveland: The Burrows Brothers Company, 1907. Limited Edition #101 of 160. 1/2 leather. Fine. No dust jacket as issued. Exceedingly Rare. A Near Fine Copy. Darkening to spine. In Good Original Slipcase. 640 p. Includes: illustrations, diagrams, maps. During the American Revolutionary War, a contingent of Delaware Christian Indians, led by John Heckwelder, an assistant to Moravian missionary David Zeisberger, founded the last of five missions to occupy the Tuscarawas Valley between May 3, 1772 and September 8, 1781. The mission was located immediately adjacent to the west bank of the Tuscarawas River. Eighteen months later, British led Indian soldiers forcibly removed to the Upper Sandusky region all 400 of the Indian converts then living in the Tuscarawas Valley at the New Schoenbrunn, Gnadenhutten, and Salem missions. Seventeen years later, Zeisberger returned to the Tuscarawas Valley and founded his last mission at Goshen on October 4, 1798. Born in Bedford, England, March 12, 1743, Heckwelder immigrated to America with his mother and father at the age of eleven. In 1762, at the age of nineteen, he accompanied Christian Frederick Post to the Tuscarawas Valley in an aborted attempt to found an Indian mission among the Delaware. Their efforts were interrupted by the Pontiac uprising and Heckwelder barely escaped death from hostile Indians opposed to the project. At the request of David Zeisberger in 1771 Heckwelder entered the missionary service, was ordained in 1778, and served until 1786. In 1788 he was appointed the agent in Ohio for the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel and served until 1810. In 1798 he cooperated with Zeisberger at the Goshen mission and founded the white settlement of Gnadenhutten. Howes 380

John Gottlieb Ernestus Heckewelder was an American missionary for the Moravian Church. After a visit to Ohio with Christian F. Post, a colonial agent, in 1762, and temporary employment in the Moravian missions at Friedenshutten and Sheshequin, Pennsylvania, in 1765-1771, he entered, in the latter year, upon his actual career as an evangelist to the Indians, being appointed assistant to David Zeisberger, in Ohio, where he remained fifteen years. In 1792, at the request of the secretary of war, he accompanied Gen. Rufus Putnam to Post Vincennes to treat with the Indians. In 1793 he was a second time commissioned to assist at a treaty with the Indians of the lakes. Between 1797 and 1800 he remained mainly in Ohio, and was for a time in the civil service, being a postmaster, a justice of the peace, and an associate justice of the court of common pleas. He studied carefully the languages, manners, and customs of the Indians, particularly the Delawares, and after he had become a member of the American Philosophical Society, at Philadelphia, several of his contributions of Indian archaeology were published in their transactions. This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US.

        Southern Africa 1906-1907

      n.p., 1907. Hardcover. Fair. 77 photos. All but one measures approx. 9 x 9cm and are mounted six-to-a-page on both side of seven album leaves. The non-conforming photo is professional, measures about 30 x 21cm. and has been inserted in corner mounts inside the back cover. The rest are amateur photos. Detail generally Good to Very Good although a fair number are slightly out of focus or faded. First album leaf browned. Brief inked captions beneath all but about five of the uniform-sized photos. The large photo is also uncaptioned. One album leaf has been cut to remove one photo on each side. Additional stubs indicate that six leaves were removed from the end of this album. Contemporary oblong album (36 x 27cm.), lacking about half of backstrip. First page in album captioned Big Game Shooting in G. S. W. A. July-September 1907. Animals killed include impala, lechwe, wildebeest, and reedbuck. There are five photos here and there in the album identified as Chobe River. Some other hunting scenes seem to be in Northern Rhodesia (Zambia). There is a photo of the Sanatarium Hotel in Kimberley and another photo of orange sellers to train passengers at Palachwe. Another photo is captioned "Our camp at Elephant Drift." Four rather indistinct photos are of his meerkat. A half dozen are of Cape Town (more water than land). Three photos are of a horse identified as "The Wombat" and further identified as "1st [??] S. Africa 1904-1908." Two or three others are of horse shows. or show horses. Four photos were taken in Durban and show various officers in the same cart drawn by a man wearing some sort of native regalia. The large photo is a high quality professional photo which shows a group of 28 unidentified soldiers in a group shot in dress uniforms, more than half wearing turbans or other head gear and appearing to be South Asians; the balance are British -- perhaps the missing pages would have provided contect for this photograph.

      BMC STC German, p. 655; Cat. foreign books lib. Robert Hoe, 2 (1907), p. 195 (this copy); KVK/WorldCat (2 copies); Vermeylen, Leven en werken van Jonker Jan van der Noot (1899), pp. 45-63, 146 (D). Very rare first edition of the German translation of Jan van der Noot's Het theatre oft toon-eel, originally published in Dutch in London in 1568. It is a literal translation from the Dutch by Balthasar Froe and one of the main poetical works of the southern Low Countries nobleman Jan van der Noot (ca. 1539-post 1595), introducing the standards of Renaissance poetry to the Netherlands in an unprecedented way. At the same time the book played an important role in the rising genre of emblematical literature, especially in the Low Countries. The twenty emblems are built around twenty sonnets: 6 loosely translated from Petrarch's Morte di Madonna Laura, Canzone III; 11 from Joachim du Bellay's Songe and 4 newly written but based on the Apocalypse. Van der Noot's commentaries on the Apocalypse are strongly anti-Catholic. The laudatory verses and the verses on Van der Noot's arms were contributed by the Amsterdam professor Lambertus Barlaeus, the poet Joannes Gigas Secundus and the Cologne painter Gotschalck Sollingen. With the red leather bookplate of Robert Hoe (1839-1909), New York printing press manufacturer, bibliophile and first president of the Grolier Club. Although the book itself bears no record of later owners, we suspect it is the copy owned by the Brussels bibliophile General Jacques Willems (1870-1857), son of the Elzevier bibliographer Alphonse Willems. With a tear in the title-page and one other leaf expertly and unobtrusively repaired, and some minor browning and soiling on the first leaves, but still in good condition. The front hinge is cracked, but the binding is otherwise fine. A very rare emblematic work with beautiful woodcuts, beautifully bound by Loric frères.
