        A superb archive of letters from Andrew Wyeth and his sister Carolyn, featuring a lovely Christmas Card hand colored by Andrew in watercolor!

      various, various. various. "A superb archive of twelve letters and Christmas cards from Andrew Wyeth and his sister Carolyn Wyeth (1909-1994), as well as his wife Betsy Wyeth, many of which are accompanied by the original transmittal envelopes, together with several other pieces of Wyeth family ephemera, AND featuring a fabulous signed card bearing a printed illustration hand painted by Andrew who adds, ""Merry Christmas Betsey & Andy,"" addressed to Charles P. Huse (1883-1958) of Belmont, Massachusetts. The archive also features five Autograph Letters Signed by Andrew Wyeth (""Andy""), 9 pages, The Mill, Chadd's Ford, Pennsylvania, 1967-1973 written to Huse's son, Thomas J. Huse (1913-2006) also of Belmont, Massachusetts; four Autograph Letters Signed by Carolyn Wyeth (""Carolyn"" as well ""Carolyn Wyeth"" on the return addresses), all accomplished on holiday cards, 1954-1971 also addressed to Thomas J. Huse, one of which includes one of her original drawings; a pair of cards inscribed to the Huse family by Betsy Wyeth, (who also signs for her husband). The collection also includes a lovely 6"" x 9"" printed Christmas card from 1938 titled ""MERRIE CHRISTMAS 1938"" and features ""THE WYETH FAMILY TREE"" adorned with photographs of N.C. Wyeth, his wife Carolyn Bockius, Andrew, Carolyn and numerous other family members.Also of great interest is a 4"" x 5"" four page printed brochure for one of Andrew Wyeth's earliest gallery shows at Doll & Richards on Newberry Street in Boston, October 24 to November 5, 1938. Works included, Low Tide, Pirate Country, Captain Coffin's House, and three additional examples of his early work. This very well may have been where the Huse family became acquainted with the Wyeths. Based on Carolyn's notes to Thomas Huse, it appears that he at one point visited with the family in Chadd's Ford (or perhaps at Andrew's summer home in Cushing, Maine), as she gives several updates on the family pets. The Huse's admiration of the Wyeth family's artistic talents appears to have been mutual, as evidenced by both Andrew's and Carolyn's compliments of Huse's photographic efforts. Much of Andrew's very early work was accomplished in Maine—a locale that Huse often used in his photographic work. Writing on January 6, 1967, Andrew commented that he was ""delighted with the photographs and have them here on my desk before me as I write[.] The richness of these prints are remarkable and you really have a great quality so keep on taking more and more pictures..."" Encouraged, Huse continued sending his work, ostensibly as holiday gifts, as most of Andrews letters were written in early January. The following year, Andrew again writes to Huse, first apologizing for being a lazy correspondent, observing ""I seem to pick up the brush with more ease than a Pen -"" and again thanking him for ""the remarkable photographs"" adding that ""The one of the Olsen House is the very best photograph I have ever seen of that place - really a beauty..."" In 1970, Wyeth again complimented Huse on his work: ""...your feeling for the wood of the Maine Country is very strong and I am proud of you...""and the following year, observed that ""The one of the Bell House above Belfast is a beauty ... The stone wall makes me home sick...""This is truly a remarkable archive, documenting the Wyeth family's tremendous love of art, and their genuine and generous desire to encourage others to explore their own artistic talents."

        A new modification of the cloud method of determining the elementary electrical charge and the most probable value of that charge," in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine, Volume XIX, Sixth Series, 1910, pp. 209-228

      - FIRST EDITION OF THE IMPORTANT PRECURSOR TO ROBERT MILLIKAN'S FAMOUS OIL DROP EXPERIMENT, THIS THE 'BALANCED-DROPLET' EXPERIMENT. In his autobiography, Millikan notes that this paper established the "first definite, sharp, unambiguous proof that electricity was definitely unitary in structure and that it only appeared in exact multiples of that unit." - a scenario that in essence made possible the measurement of the electrical charge. In this paper, Millikan makes "the important discovery that individual drops always carried an exact multiple of the smallest charge measured - this being the first accurate measurement of the charge of the electron" ( Davis, Science in the Making, Volume 3, 10-11). At the time of Millikan's writing, no one had yet obtained a reliable value for this fundamental constant, and some antiatomistic Continental physicists were insisting that it was not the constant of a unique particle but a statistical average of diverse electrical energies" (DSB, 9, pp. 395). "Millikan launched his investigation with a technique developed by the British-born physicist H. A. Wilson; it consisted essentially of measuring, first, the rate at which a charged cloud of water vapor fell under the counterforce of an electric field. Using Stokes's law of fall to determine the mass of the cloud, one could in principle compute the ionic charge. Millikan quickly recognized the numerous uncertainties in this technique, including the fact that evaporation at the surface of the cloud confused the measure of its rate of fall. Hoping to correct for this effect, he decided to study the evaporation history of the cloud while a strong electric field held it in a stationary position. But when Millikan switched on the powerful field, the cloud disappeared; in its place were a few charged water drops moving slowly in response to the imposed electrical force. "He quickly realized that it would be a good deal more accurate to determine the electronic charge by working with a single drop than with the swarm of particles in a cloud. Finding that he could make measurements on water drop s for up to forty-five seconds before they evaporated, Millikan arrived at a value for e in 1909 which he considered accurate to within 2 percent. More important, he observed that the charge on any given water drop was always an integral multiple of an irreducible value. This result provided that most persuasive evidence yet that electrons were fundamental particles of identical charge and mass" (ibid, 396). Here Millikan makes "the important discovery that individual drops always carried an exact multiple of the smallest charge measured - this being the first accurate measurement of the charge of the electron" ( Davis, Science in the Making, Volume 3, 10-11). Millikan recorded the "most probable value of the elementary electrical charge" to have "a weighted mean of 4.65 x 10 (-10) e.s.u. - a significant increase over previously determined values of e, but in excellent agreement with half the value Rutherford and Geiger had obtained for the charge on alpha particles in 1908" (Holton, 1978, 51; Davis, 11). Robert A. Millikan was an American physicist. He received the Nobel prize in 1923 "for his work on the elementary charge of electricity and on the photoelectric effect" (Nobel Portal). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor & Francis. (9 x 5.75 inches; 225 x 144mm). Complete. [4], viii, [924], 4. Thirteen plates and in-text illustrations throughout.

        Three ALS on personal letterhead, program, and signed, dedicated photograph from Wright Lorimer to Estelle Carpenter of San Francisco and her two daughters.

      San Francisco: Wright Lorimer , 1909. First Edition. Letter. Very good. Walter M. S. [Myron Smith] Lowell, American stage actor and playwright, author of famous religious play The Shepherd King and star of the Broadway production (playing David). Lorimer, a Colgate College (Massachusetts) graduate, Oxford post-grad, Dearborn Stock Company of Chicago theatre member, then surprisingly: Pennsylvania baptist preacher, marriage and a gig as a poultry farmer ..then 15-year old Zelda ran away with him in Michigan, all that before the iconic role of King David. Six years plus, the nation loved him and his stardom rose. After wide notoriety, a vaudeville crestfall and the absence of a follow-up chapter of success, he committed suicide at the age of 38 years, by putting his head in the gas oven of a boarding house kitchen on 124 West Sixty-fifth Street . His personal letterhead reads: Grasp Thine Opportunities, showing a hand grasping three arrows. Three letters from what likely are hotels in Northern California, wherein he writes to Estelle Carpenter, Decemeber 14, 1909, 777 Turk St., San Francisco: 'My Dear Miss Carpenter' after visiting her unusual and welcoming home. You must know that I see many homes in a season of travel, homes where money has been spent with a lavish hand - some arranged with an artistic taste, some crowded with valuable decorations with so little sense that one is uncomfortable - but your home! The memory of the sweet odor - the quiet - the presence of the spirit of something unnameable but most satisfying will long linger in my memory. He offers her a box at the Garrick Theatre (program laid in), invites her to come, perhaps closing night, and fill it with friends. (To Estelle Carpenter, Q of H) January 3, 1910, Sacramento: To The Carpenters: My own dear friends, just a line to tell you how I miss you and wish I could run in to dinner. The memory of your loving kindness is sweeter than all the flowers that grow in all the gardens of California and your home is 'Sunshine" even in stormy weather. Jan 10-15th I shall be in Los Angeles and hope to have a line from each of you. Writes of manager/advance man. He is no longer producing the Shepard King and wishes to be own manager again - 'Write to me Estelle - Edith and mother - I want to hear from you. Yours Always, Wright Larimer." May 8, 1910: My Dear Estelle Carpenter: Hello! Did you get my booklets. I am home at work with a crew of masons on my open air theatre. Have lots of applications for pupils but cannot take then until I get dormitory completed. Hope you and mother and sister are welll. Had a fine season through the middle west and south. My whole heart and soul are in my plan to present great Biblical Plays in my open air theatre. Write to me to address.. "I love you all three." [underscored]. Yours ever, Wright. P.O. Box 216, Rockaway, New Jersey. Photograph shows Lorimer costumed for the Good Shepard, a 6 x 11 matted on 15 x 10-1/2, December 17, 1909. "This picture of me as 'David' is presented to my Dear friends Mrs. Carpenter and her two daughers in memory of one of the most delightful visits of my memory. Wright Lorimer". Loss to mat, with chipped border and split along signature. Estelle Carpenter served as Supervisor of Music for San Francisco Public Schools from 1897 to 1945. Known as that "dynamo in skirts," she inspired generations of school children to "breathe deeply," An active member of many musical societies in California and nationwide, it was under her guidance that the school system initiated one of the most innovative and thorough musical programs in the nation. Her papers are held at the California Historical Society. Letters near fine; Photograph and program showing flaws: good.

      Chicago, 1909. unbound. Fine lot consisting of four signed checks drafted by founding members of the Ringling Brothers Circus, several directly related to circus business, including: Henry Ringling (1869 - 1918) drafting a check to his sickly brother Al Ringling (1852 - 1918) for the sum of $20,000. Signed by Henry on the obverse and endorsed by Al on the recto; Charles Ringling (1863 - 1926) interesting check with Ringling Brothers "The Worlds Greatest Shows" imprint, made out to the Strobridge Lithographing Co., October 15, 1921, the Chicago firm which printed many of the colorful Circus posters in the 1900s; Otto Ringling (1858 - 1911) scarce signed check drafted on The Corn Exchange National Bank, April 26, 1909, with dark bold signature; and John Ringling (1866 - 1936) drafting a check on The Corn Exchange National Bank, August 29, 1922, to the Bank of Sarasota for the sum of $40,000. This deposit was in anticipation of expenses which would be incurred when the Circus would retire to its winter quarters in Sarasota, Florida. This lot is in very good condition with the usual cancellation holes (evident on most Ringling checks) far from the signatures. Five Ringling Brothers signatures on four checks. Founded in the United States in 1884 by 5 of the 7 Ringling Brothers. It acquired the Barnum and Bailey Circus, merging them in 1919 to become Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus.

        Letters on the Baluch-Afghan Boundary Commission of 1896 under Captain A.H. McMahon, C.I.E.

      Calcutta: `The Baptist Mission Press,, 1909. Written to the Englishman (Calcutta) and Times of India (Bombay) by their Special Correspondent with the Mission. Small octavo. Original dark blue sand-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine, black surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed, and very slightly mottled, pale toning, single worm-track through the last few leaves, but overall very good indeed. First and only edition, extremely uncommon OCLC has BL and University of Nebraska only. The Afghan-Baluch boundary from Domandi to the Persian frontier was one of the last sections of the borders of India to be officially demarcated (see Davies, The Problem of the North-West Frontier, 1890-1908, p 162). Maynard - who was to become one of India's leading ophthalmologists, performing over 14,000 operations for cataracts, and publishing important papers on glaucoma - accompanied McMahon's commission as Medical Officer, publishing a couple of scientific papers relating to observations made on the expedition, along with these unofficial "despatches" contributed to the Indian press. Maynard's letters are picturesque but highly informative, always retaining a sense of the importance of the task in hand, and the vital rôle that the commanding officer played in the success of their operations; "All of this has not been accomplished without great forethought, great tact, and the constant exercise of those qualities of mind and heart in dealing with more or less civilised races, and which are possessed by Captain McMahon in an eminent degree. The proof of this is that the demarcation of 800 miles of frontier Â… all of it lying among tribes more noted for their lawlessness and disregard for their manners, and in country which, when not actual desert, has been hitherto regarded as unsafe for British officers to visit, has been settled, much of it rapidly, and all of it without accident" (p.87). Maynard had previously served on the Black Mountain Expedition, as the superintendent of Patna Opium Factory, 1895-1901, and as Civil Surgeon Ranchi, Hazaribagh, Patna and Darjeeling. He died in 1921 at the age of 57.

        Artemis to Actaeon and other verse.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York. 1909 - First edition. Small octavo. 90 pages. Original gilt decorated dark green cloth.Presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper by the author to her "personal maid in attendance" Elise Duvlenck: "Elise from Edith - Sept 1909". Wharton's biographer, R.W.B. Lewis, writes: "The pink-cheeked and rather breathless Elise had only recently joined Edith's household. Edith at first regarded her as 'full of merit, but lacking her predecessor's commanding genius'; but after the group began its jaunts, Elise proved her ability by taking charge of most of the luggage and conveying it from place to place by train, while the others traveled in the Mercedes. As time passed, indeed, Elise came closer in Edith's affections than anyone in her household except [Catherine] Gross. On her side Elise, who was soon declaring that she alone knew how to look after Mme. Wharton and her wardrobe, developed an almost mystical reverence for her mistress."Faint traces of damp to covers. Very good indeed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        [Original Photo Album of the Construction of the Madeira-Mamore Railroad]

      (ca 1909-1912). Very good. Small oblong 8vo. album. Black textured board, 5.5” x 8” approx. “Brazil” in white album pen to front cover. Photographic map mounted to front pastedown. With 61 vintage photographs glue-mounted recto and verso, plus one remarkable 5-panel, 2.5’ fold-out panorama of Porto Velho. Most images 5.75” x 6.75”, some smaller. Eleven hand-colored. Most numbered in the negative. All clearly captioned in English. Rubbed at joints; some bumping, wear. Binding cocked. A few leaves tender at gutter. Apparently complete. Very good. The construction of the Madeira-Mamore Railroad through the Brazilian Amazon is considered one of the most deadly and impressive engineering feats of the 20th century. More than 6,000 workers died over the course of its 230-mile construction, one — so the legend goes — for every railroad tie laid. The line was intended to transport rubber from remote Brazilian forests for export, but not long after its completion in 1912 the center of rubber production shifted to Asia. Nevertheless, the railway was a defining event of Brazilian and South American identity. And the album here offered contains beautiful, accomplished images of the project, taken by official photographer Dana B. Merrill. Merrill was contracted to document the project in 1909 and stayed through completion, eventually taking more than 2,000 photos (fewer than 200 are known today). Images in this album include the hospital ward, worker's cafe, bridges and other rail structure, engines and train-cars, native Caripuna Indians, various camps and laborers, jungle scenes, and like. Many of these appeared in the two most comprehensive accounts of the Madeira-Mamore: Frank Kravingny's THE JUNGLE ROUTE (Tremayne, 1940) and TRACKS IN THE AMAZON by Gary and Rose Needleman (Utah, 2014). However, our research suggests at least several of these photographs are previously unknown. An important collection of one of the major construction projects of the last century, taken by an innovative photographer, of whom foremost Merrill expert Pedro Ribeiro Moreira Neto has written: “How then did these dramatic and powerful images emerge — since we find no precedent — if not from the genius of the photographer? What other photographer could have produced images of such sophisticated technical quality[...]?” OCLC lists only two substantial collections of Merrill’s photographs: NYPL and the National Library of Brazil.

        A Book Of Satyrs.

      John Lane / The Bodley Head (1909), London & New York - Hardcover. Folio. 17.5 x 13.25 inches. (32pp.) Green paper covered boards with title and decorative device on front cover, parchment spine. Text printed on thick laid paper. Edition Limited to 300 copies Decorative title page plus reproductions of thirteen full-page black and white line drawings, as well as a number of smaller decorations. Introduction by James Guthrie. The Second Edition of Spare's second-published book - this edition had an additional full page plate "Pleasure" (used as the frontispiece) that did not appear in the 1907 First Edition, and the text of Guthrie's Introduction has also been reset and some of the vignettes re-arranged. Harper A2b. Small tear to the bottom of the spine at the front hinge. Spine and boards somewhat grubby, as always, and with a rather unfortunate liquid stain, somewhat larger than a matchbox, near the fore-edge of the front board. Corners lightly bumped and rounded as always. Internally the book is far nicer than usually encountered: this is a book that often suffers from quite severe shadowing and offset from the plates. In this case there is only a hint of discoloration, and a little light foxing to the edges. Small contemporary bookseller's blindstamp on first blank. Internally quite bright but the state of the binding means it would not really rate above VG. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
