Vertical light crease near the spine fold to the front panel. Some edge-wear to the spine ends and corners with a little loss (see images). Toning to the spine. Some light professional japanese tissue paper repairs along the spine folds and rear flap fold to the verso but these do not come through to the front.

        The Story of the Noble Opal. Flavelle’s Gem Series, No 1

      Flavelle, Roberts and Sankey Ltd, Brisbane 1908 - 165 x 105 mm, 114 pages, index. Scattered foxing at the page edges extends to the margin edges of some pages. The title page is foxed at its edges. (It is not as brown as it appears in the photograph.) Grey cloth boards with a few spots of silverfish damage and a small hole just above the author's surname at the lower part of the spine. Gilt titles on the front board and on the spine are bright. An excellent, tightly-bound copy of a rare book. This, the first book written solely about opal, covers the story of the gemstone from the time of the Romans in the Augustine age, its formation, where it is found, and how to care for it. In the end-note to the reader on page 111, Skertchly writes that the publishers 'asked me to write a series of little books on gemstones, and gave me an entirely free hand. As this, the first of them shows, they will not be mere gatherings from other harvests, but original works embodying the results of my own experience'. This may have been the only volume in Flavelle's Gem Series. As most copies appear to have been discarded and destroyed, this is a rare book, much sought-after by collectors of works about opal. Shipping will be reimbursed on this item (ie, free shipping). Near offers considered. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Contains 170 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1" x 1.5" and 3.5" x 5.5" with some captions. A good only album with edgewear and loose pages and photos with near fine photographs.A family photo album kept by Helen M. Boehm of New Jersey from 1908 to 1918 hand titled "Helen M. Boehm Photographs 1913, '14, '15 - Please leave photos in the book." Many of the early photos are portraits of family members with the date written on the bottom edge. However a majority of the photos are of women enjoying each other's company with captions such as "sisters all" which speaks to the camaraderie between these women seen throughout the album. One section of snapshots are of women posing during a "lunch in the woods" in 1913 with captions like "votes for women" and "posing for the movies." Most of the photos are of women posing sweetly with flowers or playfully with each other, including sitting on each other's laps. There are occasional photos of them with their husbands or children or other families. Some of the photos show girls goofing off at the beaches in the area including Coney Island, Rockaway, and Bethany. Here they can be seen smiling and making human pyramids. A few photos show the start and finish of a "potatoes race" with girls running through a field with potatoes on spoons. Another photo of a group of women dressed as men reads, "our boys?" A section of 10 photos show the women dressed as clowns and posing with one photo captioned "some boy" of a girl dressed in men's clothing. They can also be seen later in the album dressed as Native Americans with headdresses and their hair in long braids. Later in the album there are photos of Helen's brother, James Boehm, who fought in World War I and was killed in 1918 in France. The photos are of James and another unnamed soldier posing with Helen in 1917 presumably after his basic training and before he was shipped overseas.An interesting collection of photographs of a young woman's family and her friendships with other women. .

        Rytí?ové, pano?i a krásné pastý?ky. Kniha pohádek [Knights, pages and beautiful shepherdesses]. Illustrated by Minka Podhajská. Signed and inscribed by the author

      Nákladem R. Prombergra, Olomouc 1908 - Small octavo (15 x 15 cm). Original pictorial red cloth; 78, [1] pp. Color illustrations. A very good copy, printed on coated paper stock, possibly part of a preferential print run. Signed and inscribed by Vysko?il in 1908. Minka, or Minnie, Podhajská was a student at the Wiener Werkstätte who later became a prominent toy designer. "The Viennese born Podhajska was a student at the Kunstgewerbeschule and her work appeared in the movement's well-known journals Ver Sacrum, Hohe Warte, and Die Flache, as well as designing toys for the Wiener Werkstatte and numerous other graphic works during World War I. She moved to Prague in 1919, the year she created Mesice, and was a founding member of the Czech artists' consortium. Wilhelmina (Minka) Podhajska (1881-1963), famed Viennese designer and illustrator, was a member of the Klimt Group (including Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffmann, Adolf Böhm, Koloman Moser, and Franz Ci?ek). Podhajska became the most acclaimed student of Adolf Böhm, a founding member of the Secession, and later WFA (Female Women's Academy), the rebellious offspring that broke away from the Vienna Secession in 1905. "Rejecting the fin-de-siècle's oversaturated civilization, Minka Podhajska tapped two main sources for inspiration: children's drawings and traditional wooden peasant toys (particularly those produced in the Grödnertal in the southern Tyrol and in the Erzgebirge mountains between Saxony and Bohemia). Here, within the context of the avant-garde's fascination with primitivism, it is important to reiterate that scientifc and artistic studies frequently conflated the work of women, children, and folk cultures: positive appraisals of this conflation tended to reveal critics' pro-Secessionist affinities." [From: "An Artist in Every Child-A Child in Every Artist": Art for the Child at the Kunstschau 1908, by Megan Brandow-Faller]. An exceedingly important and scarce book. A fine copy."

        Cliff Palace, Mesa Verde National Park - Photograph

      - Toned gelatin silver photograph of Cliff Palace at Mesa Verde National Park, after the 1908 excavation. Photograph is on paper and measures 20" wide by 16" tall. Back of photograph is lightly soiled and all edges are lightly worn. ¾" tear on right edge and soiling on left side of photo near edge, affecting back and front of photo. After reviewing a collection of 24 photographs acquired from the Pennington heir collection, it seems that most said photographs were artist proofs due to many identical images with slight variations in exposure. William Marion Pennington photographed people and landscapes across the Southern United States in the early 1900's. In 1907, he and fellow photographer, Lisle Updike opened Pen-Dike Studio in Durango, Colorado; Pennington managing the studio, doing portrait work and operating the dark room, and Updike taking photos in nearby towns and mining camps. In 1911 Pennington took sole control of the studio and renamed it Pennington Studio. Around this time he also obtained a contract from the National Park Service to photograph the cliff dwelling at Mesa Verde National Park. This photograph depicts Cliff Palace, the largest cliff dwelling in North America and located at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. Looking south through the archaeological site many of the 150 rooms, 75 open areas and 21 kivas are clearly defined. Cliff Palace was occupied by the Ancestral Puebloans from around A. D. 1180 to 1280 and most of the dwelling's construction took place in the last 20 years of habitation. Along with many of the other cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde, Cliff Palace was left around A. D. 1300. Due size of scanner bed image is cropped. Please call for more images of photograph.

        Last of the Plainsmen

      1908. First Edition . Signed. GREY, Zane. The Last of the Plainsmen. New York: Outing, 1908. Octavo, original gilt-stamped pictorial green cloth. $4500.First edition, illustrated with 26 black-and-white photographic plates, inscribed by the book's subject: “With compliments of ‘The Last of the PlainsmenÂ’, C.J. Jones” and by the author: “And the author Zane Grey.”A young dentist more passionate about fishing trips than fixing teeth, Grey in 1907 met ""one C.J. 'Buffalo' Jones, a former buffalo hunter who was attempting to breed 'cattalo'—a hybrid of buffalo and cattle—on his ranch near the Grand Canyon. Grey heard him speak at the Campfire Club in New York, and while most of the audience hooted at his implausible-sounding adventure stories, Grey believed him. Furthermore, he proposed to accompany Jones out West and write a book about his work. Jones agreed, and the planning commenced—until Grey saw how much the trip would cost, at which point he realized he couldn't afford it. But [his wife] DollyÂ… had the vision to see his potential. 'I've got a hunch that this trip to the West will be the turning point in your career,' she told him. The trip—during which he rode into the wilderness with some tough-minded Mormons, shot a mountain lion and drank in the landscape—sparked a lifelong obsession with the West. It also yielded The Last of the Plainsmen"" (Samuel Hughes). During the western excursion recounted in these pages, ""Grey discovered the trappers, hunters, miners and cowboys who were to become the heroes of most of his later fiction"" (Lamar, 454). The trip thus ""determined the subject matter of his most popular books for the next several years and ultimately helped determine what millions of Americans over several generations would choose for their reading material"" (ANB). The Outing Publishing Company was ""best known for its sports magazine with the same name, and few literary critics noticed its booksÂ… [but] sportsmen had enough respect for Outing's books that this work, when it was published, gained Grey a reputation as a daring and accomplished outdoorsman. Certainly Field and Stream thought soÂ… [Its general manager Eltinge Warner] saw Grey as an upcoming writer whose unusual experiences and engaging style would attract new readers and boost subscriptions,"" and, on the strength of The Last of the Plainsmen, began commissioning work from Grey that would further establish him as a popular and profitable author (Pauly, 81-82). Without extremely rare original dust jacket. Myers, 9. A few spots of foxing to interior, only light rubbing and soiling to pictorial cloth, mild toning to spine and edges of rear board. A desirable inscribed copy in extremely good condition.

        Pierre Gatier- ice skating in the Bois de Boulogne, 1908.

Uitgegeven in een oplage van 50 stuks. Afm.: 34,8 x 49,4 cm.Tijdens de Belle Epoque trok Tout Paris in de winter naar het Bois de Boulogne. Men kon er schaatsen in stijl. De New York Times berichtte: ?During the Summer season the promenade of the fashionable world is the Bois de Boulogne, the Chanps Elysées having been given up to the carriageless million. But no one would have ever dreamed, perhaps, that the wood was to become, in the dead of Winter, a place as of much attraction as in the heat of Summer. In the centre of the wood the two artificial lakes which have an extent of nearly a mile, are now covered with a firm sheet of ice, and on it may be seen thousands of skaters of both sexes. To the Parisians this is a novel scene, and you can well imagine that the Bois at once became the centre of attraction.?'Gatier (1878-1944) verwierf bekendheid met z?n marine schilderijen en werd daarnaast gevierd om z?n scènes van de Parijse nachtclubs en society.Literatuur: Felix Gatier ?Catalogue Raisonne de L'Oeuvre Gravé?', nr. 41Prijs: ?2.950,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

Prince Edward's spelling is not perfect, the thief gets "upstrepulous" with "the gendarmes", but he has clearly taken the exam very seriously.

        Lettera autografa firmata indirizzata a ''Caro Goffredo'' Datata 11 Xbre, s.d. (ma 1908 c.a).

      1908. 3 pagine in-8, chiaramente vergate e firmate ''Edmondo''. Missiva di tono familiare e affettuoso scritta verosimilmente negli ultimi mesi di vita di De Amicis ad un non meglio precisato amico ''Goffredo''. Lo scrittore fa cenno a suo figlio Ugo, ventinovenne (essendo nato nel 1879 la lettera si deve presumere essere scritta nel 1908), ne descrive la sua passione per l'alpinismo e ai suoi esordi da scrittore ''Caro Goffredo.. Mi rallegro con tutto il cuore del grande successo di Firenze e te ne preannuncio uno eguale a Milano.. Desidera veramente di vederti anche il mio figliuolo Ugo, che a vent'anni (nove anni fa) scrisse una commedia assai promettente, la quale, non so perchè non ebbe sorella. E tu conoscerai in lui un giovane forte e buono, che ti riuscirà simpatico. Sarebbe la mia felicità se non fosse alpinista temerario, irrefrenabile, incurabile, che mi fa tremare ogni anno dal primo di luglio al trenta settembre, quasi senza interruzione..''.

        Complete Writings

      1908. Signed. HUBBARD, Elbert. The Complete Writings. East Aurora, New York: The Roycroft Shop, (1908-15). Twenty volumes. Tall quarto, original three-quarter green morocco, raised bands, gilt- and blind-tooled spines, top edges gilt, uncut. $5200.Author’s edition of the collected Little Journeys, number 894 of 1000 sets, finely printed and bound by Hubbard’s prestigious Roycroft Press, each volume signed by Hubbard. With two pages of Hubbard’s original manuscript for one of the “journeys” bound into Volume I.Appalled by the way commercialization cheapened the art of printing books, and inspired by William Morris’ Kelmscott Press, Hubbard founded his own press in 1893. The Roycroft Press became perhaps the most important touchstone of the Arts and Crafts Movement in America, which sought to revive the standards of medieval craftsmanship by producing books that were themselves works of art. This set is one of the finest examples of the Arts and Crafts style in American printing and the epitome of Hubbard’s ambitions for the Roycroft Press. Under the Roycroft imprint Hubbard wrote 170 “conversational” essays (which he called “Little Journeys”) about the lives and works of historic personages from the arts, government, and private enterprise. Printed in exquisite typography, on Roycroft hand-made paper, with three-color initial letters designed by Dard Hunter, and decorative devices throughout. Each “journey” is accompanied by a delicately etched portrait of the subject either by Gaspard or Schneider. Two pages of Hubbard’s manuscript bound into Volume I, between pages 124-25. Occasional scattered foxing. Light rubbing to extremities, some sunning to original boards. A handsome set in near-fine condition.
