        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).

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.

Among the plates are a modern map of the Gulf region as well as a 17th century Dutch nautical chart which the editor errouneously attributed to Roobacker. "Roobacker's ships had English charts on board, but Roobacker complained that they were very inaccurate [. He] made a chart of his travels between Laraq and Basra, with marks of depths and accurate notes on geographic latitude. 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. .

      [Kansas City:] Union Bank Note Company, 1907. - 56pp. Profusely illustrated with photographs. Pictorial wrappers, sewn. 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. Dr. Cordier records in interesting fashion the trek into the heart of the Wyoming country; amusing incidents of the trip; mountain trails; pack trains; elk and wolf fighting; Tetons; snow storms, etc." - Eberstadt. 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.

        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. Alfred Schrötter, der dem Steiermärkischen Kunstverein als Ausschussmitglied angehörte, bildete eine ganze Generation steirischer Künstlerinnen und Künstler heran, u.a.

        Fabric Swatch Books 1907, 1912, 1913 & 1915

      1907-1915 1907 - 4to. 4 manuscript volumes. Each volume cloth backed over marbled paper covered boards, all volumes inscribed by hand throughout, with varying degrees of deterioration, all four books have been heavily used, neat excisions of some gatherings. Three notebooks seemingly purchased from booksellers in Roubaix, Northern France, which have been filled with contemporary fabric swatches pasted onto each leaf, and extensively annotated with specifications, prices and other details. Perhaps used by a tailor, but most probably a cloth merchant showing off his seasonal wares. The books have been penned in a consistent hand, and occasionally edited (with varying levels of animosity) by other contemporary users. Each volume has suffered externally to an extent from being carried about and used at the time, but all retain the vast majority of the original fabric samples on the present pages, and the commercial bookplates indicating where each notebook was purchased. The number of swatches per book varies, but is over 600 for both the 1913 and 1915 volumes, and more than 250 for the 1907 and 1912 texts, for a total of around 1700 individual examples.
