        Midshipman's Journal with 42 Drawings, Two Large Naval Photograph Albums, and a Personal Manuscript Journal of Captain Charles Ford Hammill

      Unknown to many historians and seldom recorded in genealogies, Captain Charles Ford Hammill was the son of Captain Tynte Ford Hammill who participated in the bombardment of Alexandria in 1882 as well as the Gordon Relief Expedition of 1884-1885. Both his father's and his brother's naval papers are held in British museums. Finally, Charles' archive now unexpectedly presents itself for acquisition. [United Kingdom, Africa, Ceylon, Middle East, 1909-1928] - The personal naval archive of Captain Charles Ford Hammill (born 1891), seemingly the only comprehensive record of this Captain's noteworthy career with the Royal Navy, consisting of his skillfully illustrated manuscript midshipman's journal, and two extensive photograph albums captioned in detail in his hand. Accompanied by a manuscript journal of family history penned by the wife of his brother John (also a RN Captain), which reveals many of Charles' little-known appointments, and other fascinating matters including the devastating long-term impact of their father's death (Captain Tynte Ford Hammill). A visually pleasing naval archive replete with manuscript drawings and photographs. These are large and generous volumes, a visually captivating naval archive. The two photograph albums are oblong folio volumes measuring 37 x 27 x 4,5 cm and contain over 600 original photographs combined. The manuscript midshipman's journal is a splendid work of 265 pages of text, plus 42 hand drawn and coloured sea charts and mechanical drawings, a folio volume issued by the Royal Navy. Charles Ford Hammill, RN, CIE, Senior Naval Officer, Persian Gulf Division (born 27 November 1891) is best known for his notable service during the Second World War, in particular for commanding HMS Cornwall during the search for the German pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee in 1939, and then intercepting French ships in the Bight of Benin in 1940. Very little else seems to be recorded about his life and career. His name is found in only one entry of all the more popular genealogical sources, the details of which are corroborated in one of the present volumes. This, his personal archive, together with his sister-in-law's manuscript account of his family's history, seems to be the only comprehensive record of his naval service, and his connection to the Ford-Hammill lineage. Quite possibly the most thorough documentation of his career to be found anywhere, all of his naval appointments are logged in the manuscript journal of his family's history, as well as family events from his childhood to his retirement from the navy. This volume contains an uncommonly generous amount of manuscript drawings with 39 technical diagrams and 8 maps, each being a precise and striking image drawn by his steady hand. Descending from a naval pedigree, Charles' brother was also a captain in the Royal Navy, and their father was Captain Tynte Ford Hammill who participated in the bombardment of Alexandria in 1882 as well as the Gordon Relief Expedition of 1884-1885. His maternal grandfather was Admiral Charles Schomberg who also participated in the two aforementioned campaigns. He also had uncles in the Navy. The archive includes the following: Midshipman's Journal of Charles Ford Hammill who proved himself a particularly talented draftsman, and keen marine in the making, in the three years of making log notes, drawings, and charts, from January 1909 to January 1912. His fine hand coloured sketches include precise mechanical works illustrations, painstakingly detailed ship plans, meticulous maps, and detailed nautical charts showing fleet formations and manoeuvres. Equally detailed are his descriptions of naval procedures and tasks, of life at sea, and of memorable events. Fastidiously, Charles records barometrical readings and nautical winds, duties performed on-board, pertinent news and notable events, not missing a calendar day. In standard format, the volume is a two-part work, the first section being a succinct chronological daily naval log, the second section containing detailed accounts illustrated with charts and diagrams, in this case numerous. Charles Hammill served on five vessels whilst keeping this naval log, HMS Shannon, HMS Dee, HMS Kale, HMS Defence, and HMS Temerraire (1907). [He graduated to Sub Lieutenant in 1912, and had reached the rank of Captain by the time he served in World War II.] The first entry is made 19 January 1909 on-board HMS Shannon, on which he would learn the fundamentals of seamanship. His inaugural oversees voyage, on-board HMS Defence, would see him to Cape Town and Simon's Bay, then to Sierra Leone, Saint Vincent in Cape Verde. On this voyage he was also granted a two week leave to visit Victoria Falls. The engineering drawings of HMS Temeraire are remarkable. With this vessel, from January 1911 to January 1912, he and his colleagues learned and practiced for battle, not knowing that these skills would be utilized only a few years later in the Great War. [With the re-organization of the home commands in response to the German naval threat HMS Temeraire became part of the newly-constituted First Battle Squadron in 1912.] Condition: Folio. 265 pages in manuscript, plus 42 hand drawn and coloured sea charts and mechanical drawings tipped in throughout, each initialled or signed by him. Occasional in-text sketches in the beginning of the volume, mainly chains or ensigns. (S. 519. Journal for the use of Junior Officers, issued by the Royal Navy, 1906.) Brown cloth over marbled boards, labelled to spine, original endpapers. Volume measures approximately 22 x 32 cm. Two large and well-captioned photograph albums illustrating Charles Hammill's long life at sea, specifically his lesser-known service prior to the Second World War. Includes numerous photographs taken while he was a midshipman and corresponding directly to the writings and diagrams made in his midshipman's journal. Large oblong folio albums, together containing 608 photographs and spanning the years 1905-1928. Photographs range in size, the largest measuring approximately 29 x 23 cm, and the smallest approximately 6 x 3,5 cm. Albums measure approximately 37 x 27 4,5 cm, leather bindings slightly worn especially at spine, otherwise in very good condition. The first album, containing 200 photographs, many of which are very large, begins with a manuscript illustrated title page of sorts, Charles Ford Hammill's name in calligraphy being surrounded by 25 illustrations of Naval heraldry, each representing one of his appointments, including specific vessels and naval colleges. Photographs begin at the Royal Navy College at Osborne, in 1905, and continue at the college in Dartsmouth, from where he would graduate from cadet to midshipman. Forming an uncommon and truly delightful visual chronicle to accompany his manuscript midshipman's journal, 107 photographs capture Charles' voyages and adventures as a young seaman beginning his naval career. Serving and learning on five vessels in three years, he travelled as far as São Vicente in the Cape Verde Islands, Cape Town in South Africa, and making an inland tour to Victoria Falls on the Zambezi. First World War navy campaigns ensue. Photographs suggest that Charles was serving on battleship HMS Colossus commanded by Admiral Sir William Edmund Goodenough during the Battle of Jutland in 1916, six snapshot views showing the shellfire damage to the forward superstructure, seen from the interior of the vessel and each captioned in detail. The arrival of the American Squadron to intimidate and defeat the Germans at Scapa Flow in 1917 is also shown. A highlight of this album are the photographs taken in the North Sea from HMS Lion, alongside Admiral of the Fleet Captain Chatfield during the confrontation and surrender of the German High Seas Fleet in November 1918. This album concludes with a photograph of King George V on board HMS Barham June 1917 as he visited the Grand Fleet. The second album of photographs, with 408 views, features inter-war assignments from 1921 to 1928, and essentially forms an impressive tour of the Eastern Hempisphere. Views of special interest, captured on a voyage on HMS Colombo, include Aden, Trincomalee in Sri Lanka, the Port Louis Harbour at Mauritius, and unique scenes in Tanzania including the government house at Dar-es-Salaam and a group of Askaris in Tanga, these followed by a snapshot photograph of a camel caravan at Kisimayu (Kismayo, Somalia), the city of Zanzibar, and a shooting expedition in Kenya. After a visit to Ceylon, three photographs are taken at Bahrein. The journey continued to Karachi, with an inland sojourn to Quetta, and then to Bombay, Calcutta, the Seychelles, and so on. From May to July the SS Uanstephan Castle saw him to Durban and past the ancient Sao Sebastao Fort of Mozambique. Charles' brother, Commander John Schomberg Hammill, and John's wife Anna who wrote the accompanying journal, are pictured on their wedding day. In 1926 Charles boarded HMS Royal Oak, affording him yet more travels, this time to Italy, Greece, Malta, Jerusalem, and Cairo. The remainder of the photographs are taken on the continent, John appearing again in uniform, and several illustrating Captain Charles Hammill's personal life. Manuscript Journal of Hammill family history, approximately 150 pages, penned by Anna, wife of Captain John Schomberg Hammill, and sister-in-law to Charles Ford Hammill whose midshipman's journal and photograph albums form the archive, both men being the sons of a naval hero, although they would not know their father as he died when they were but toddlers. A unique diary of sorts, Anna's journal essentially provides a chronology of the lives of the children of Tynte Ford Hammill who served in the Nile expedition for the relief of General Gordon, simultaneously with an account of her own life. She includes an endearing description of her mother, and some 3-4 pages which describe the financial circumstances of Tynte Hammill's death. In this memorandum we learn that his sons John and Charles were pressed by aunts and uncles to join the navy in order to support their widowed mother. Consequently, both began at a young age, Charles being 14 when he became a cadet. It seemed only fitting, as he had uncles who were seamen. On 1st February 1900 his uncle Charlie, took his from Portsmouth Dockyard to Spithead in the 'Resolution' (page 45 of Journal). Another uncle, General Sir George Augustus Schomberg KCB (1821-1907), Deputy Adjutant-General Royal Marines, is also mentioned. Anna's log records each naval appointment and promotion achieved by Charles, the same for her husband of course, important family events, the whereabouts of her relatives, and the like, in a neatly organized and lucid fashion. These pages contain details of the life and naval career of Charles Ford Hammill which may be otherwise unrecorded, some of which precede his midshipman's journal. Her family history journal / diary ends abruptly in 1957, two years before her death. Charles Ford Hammill, RN, CIE, Senior Naval Officer, Persian Gulf Division (born 27 November 1891, died sometime after 1960). Charles Ford Hammill - author of the midshipman's journal and compiler of the two photograph albums - is the son of Tynte Ford Hammill (1852-1894) and Anne Schomberg (daughter of Rear-Admiral Charles Frederick Schomberg and Helen Hartshorne). His father died of Malta Fever on 1 July 1894 at Linden House, Alverstoke, Hampshire, when Charles was but 3 years old, and his brother John 4 years old, and their sister Violet 7 years old. Ranks 19 April 1904 - became a Royal Navy cadet 1905 - Attending Royal Navy College, Osborne 1906 to 1907 - Attending Royal Navy College, Dartsmouth 1908 - Cadet on board HMS Cumberland 15 January 1909 - Midshipman 30 January 1912 - Sub Lieutenant 30 August 1913 - Lieutenant 30 August 1921 - Lieutenant-Commander January 1923 to January 1924 - Senior Staff, Chatham Gunnery School 31 December 1926 - Commander 30 June 1933 - Captain (Commodore) 9 January 1939 to 20 November 1940 - Warship Command, Captain of HMS Cornwall (56) 12 January 1943 - Retired from the Royal Navy [When the European War began in September 1939, under the command of Captain Charles Ford Hammill, HMS Cornwall was transferred to the Indian Ocean and joined Force I at Ceylon. On 5 October, she was involved in the search for the German pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee. Between 8 and 14 February 1940, she was docked at the Selborne dry dock at Simonstown, South Africa. In September, together with HMS Delhi, she intercepted Vichy-French light cruiser Primauguet and tanker Tarn, forcing them to return to Casablanca, Morocco. On 20 November 1940, Captain Percival Clive Wickham Manwaring took over command of the ship. In January 1941, she returned to the Selborne dry dock for refitting.] Charles' brother is Commander John Schomberg Hammill, RN Captain, CBE, (1890-1959). He was schooled at the Eastmans Royal Naval Academy in Portsmouth at the age of 10. He married Anna Bertholde Frances Browning on 3 December 1925 in Crawley, Hampshire John died in 1959 in Droxford. He too became a decorated Captain of the Royal Navy, his midshipman's journal and other papers now being held at the Imperial War Museum. Anna, the wife of Captain John Schomberg Hammill, is the author of the manuscript journal, being her personal diary combined with a chronology of family history. Charles' and John's father Captain Tynte Ford Hammill (1852 - 1 July 1894), entered the Royal Navy in 1865. A highly respected Captain in the Royal Navy, Tynte became Assistant Director of Naval Intelligence in 1880. He was Commander of HMS Monarch at the bombardment of Alexandria in 1882. He also served in the Nile expedition for the relief of General Gordon at Khartoum in 1884-5. His last berth was as flag captain of the Royal Sovereign. Tynte was the only child of John Baptiste Hammill and Mary Jane Ford, who married in 1849. Royal Museums Greenwich holds a collection of papers of Captain Tynte Ford Hammill, which was presented to the Museum in 1960 by his Captain Charles Ford Hammill.

      Hanoi imprimerie de l'Avenir du Tonkin 1909 In-8 de (2) ff., 330 pp.; demi-toile marron, dos lisse, couvertures illustrées conservées (reliure de l'époque). Première et seule édition, très rare. Elle est illustrée de 24 planches hors texte, et de 3 cartes dont 2 dépliantes. Le Dé-Tham fut l'un des pirates les plus célèbres du Tonkin. En lutte contre les Français depuis 1884, il avait déjoué toutes les tentatives faites pour le capturer; il s'était, en apparence, soumis plusieurs fois, il disposait d'un fief et d'une petite armée dans la région de Yen-Thé, et devint, pour la population une espèce de Robin des bois annamite. En 1909, le colonel Bataille fut chargé de mener une nouvelle opération pour le capturer. L'ouvrage retrace l'histoire de cette campagne avec les télégrammes envoyés par les correspondants du journal l'Avenir du Tonkin, suivis du journal de route de J. Revernoy, le principal correspondant de ce journal et qui suivit les troupes françaises pendant toute la campagne. Rare édition de Hanoi dont aucun exemplaire ne semble figurer dans les collections publiques françaises.

      Stanley Paul & Co., London 1909 - Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-276 + 12 pages of publisher's ads at rear, inserted frontispiece with illustration by Sidney H. Sime, original green cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in gold, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition. Copies in this green cloth binding were probably issued after those bound in red cloth. "A ship bearing a mysterious curse slips into a hinterland between parallel worlds, where it becomes vulnerable to assault by bestial creatures from the other universe. Credibility is assured by virtue of the author's long experience at sea, and the suspense is handled with great skill. Though far less striking in its imagery than THE HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND (1908), it is superior in terms of its internal coherency, and is one of the great weird novels." - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-91. "Vivid, filled with the minutiae of a sailing vessel, this is one of the great sea novels. While in a sense it is derivative from THE INHERITORS by Conrad and Hueffer, it is highly original in detail and well done. Although it is overshadowed as visionary horror by the more spectacular THE HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND and THE NIGHT LAND, as a work of art, it is finer." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 816.

Otherwise, lower band of leaves with hint of waviness that might come from a passing exposure to moisture, and perhaps a touch of soiling here and there. A few other finger smudges, minor closed tears and light wear besides. Notwithstanding these issues, a very handsome sales promotion for a cab company that was not just selling itself but also the notion of the horseless carriage as a luxury alternative to the horse drawn vehicle not yet fully vanquished in metropolitan use.

In line with the European, American, and Canadian exploitation of Mexico, Canadian and European investors formed the Mexico Electric Tramways Company in 1898, electrified and expanded Mexico's tram lines, and in 1906 a "group of Canadian investors organized Mexico Tramways Company (without the word Electric) in Toronto.... acquired 75% of MET's stock, took control of its tramway system and developed Necaxa dam and power plant in Puebla state," (see Allen Morrison: The Tramways of Mexico City). The Mexican Revolution put a hold on expansion plans announced about the time of this publication, and the investors would not see any dividends for over three decades.

        William Powell Frith

      [Blythburgh?], 23 June 1909. One rare and personal photograph of famous English painter William Powell Frith (1819-1909), taken less than five months before his death. Mounted in a period round wooden frame, with outside diameter measuring 24 cm. Image showing behind glass measures 14,5 cm in diameter. Inscribed in manuscript to verso wooden mount. This photograph is one of the last photographs taken of artist William Powell Frith. He has been described as the "greatest British painter of the social scene since Hogarth". Seated with Miss Marie Ellen Seymour Lucas (1879-1951) on her wedding day (on this day becoming Mrs. Laurence Grubbe), Mr. Frith and the bride's father John Seymour Lucas, R.A. (1849-1923) were dear friends, and connected professionally through the Royal Academy of Arts. Frith was also closely acquainted with the groom and Lucas' son-in-law, Laurence Carrington Grubbe (1854-1912), he too, an artist and member of the Royal Academy of Arts. [The National Portrait Gallery holds this same image.] From Wikipedia: William Powell Frith (1819-1909) specialised in genre subjects and panoramic narrative works of life in the Victorian era. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1853, presenting The Sleeping Model as his Diploma work. Born in Aldfield, North Yorkshire, Frith was encouraged to take up art by his father, a hotelier in Harrogate. He moved to London in 1835 where he began his formal art studies at Sass's Academy in Charlotte Street, before attending the Royal Academy Schools. Frith started his career as a portrait painter and first exhibited at the British Institution in 1838. In the 1840s, he often based works on the literary output of writers such as Charles Dickens, whose portrait he painted, and Laurence Sterne. He was a member of The Clique, which also included Richard Dadd. The principal influence on his work was the hugely popular domestic subjects painted by Sir David Wilkie. Wilkie's famous painting The Chelsea Pensioners was a spur to the creation of Frith's own most famous compositions. Following the precedent of Wilkie, but also imitating the work of his friend Dickens, Frith created complex multi-figure compositions depicting the full range of the Victorian class system, meeting and interacting in public places. In Ramsgate Sands, Life at the Seaside (1854) he depicted visitors and entertainers at the seaside resort. He followed this with The Derby Day, depicting scenes among the crowd at the race at Epsom Downs, which was based on photographic studies by Robert Howlett. This 1858 composition was bought by Jacob Bell for £1,500. It was so popular that it had to be protected by a specially installed rail when shown at the Royal Academy of Arts. Another well-known painting was The Railway Station, a scene of Paddington Station. In 1865, he was chosen to paint the Marriage of the Prince of Wales.

        Draught for "Der Rosenkavalier". Autograph manuscript with autograph lines by Richard Strauss on the reverse. [Rodaun, June 1909].

      1909. Oblong 4to. 1¾ pp. Hofmannsthal's early draught for the lovers' duet between Sophie and Octavian, from Act II of the "Rosenkavalier", after the silver rose is presented: both lovers sing twelve lines each which oppose and yet complement each other: "Sophie. Dahin muss ich zurück / Dahin und müsst ich völlig sterben auf dem Weg [...]". - "Octavian. Ich war ein Bub / Wars gestern oder wars vor einer Ewigkeit [...]". As evidenced by the caption, this is the "addendum to page 6" (of the libretto) which Richard Strauss had requested and Hofmannsthal had supplied with his letter of June 26. It was used for the final version of the opera, albeit in an abridged and revised form. The present text corresponds to the suggestions which Strauss made in his letter to Hofmannsthal written on July 9, 1909 for a revised version of Act II. - A precious document of the collaboration between Strauss and Hofmannsthal on what remains one of the most successful operas of the 20th century. - Provenance: from the collection of Strauss's biographer Willy Schuh.
