        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]

        Die Gross-Schmetterlinge der Erde. Eine systematische Bearbeitung der Gross-Schmetterlinge der ganzen Welt.

      Stuttgart, Kernen Verlag, 1909-1954. 20 volumes (bound in 36). 4to. Text and 1458 chromolithographed plates. Ten volumes bound in 18 publisher's uniform half calf or cloth bindings with gilt titles and decorations on spines; Ten volumes unbound in 18 portfolio's. A complete set of this rare work. The fine plates are made by process of 10-14 colour lithography, and its excellent quality has remained unsurpassed. The editor Seitz planned to finish the whole work in 1912. This proved to be quite unrealistic as publication stopped in 1954, and several volumes remained unfinished. The most important collections of butterflies were consulted including those of L.W. Rothschild of Tring, the British Museum, the Paris Natural History Museum, the Senckenberg Museum at Frankfurt, as well as collections in Tokyo, Hong-Kong, Australia, South- and North- America etc. The German edition is textually larger than the English one as it has the complete supplement of volume 4 (publ. in 1954), which remained unfinished in the English edition. The unfinished volumes 7 and 15 of the German edition also have more text. Apart from the 4th supplement-volume the same volumes remained unfinished as in the English edition. The work was published in 16 volumes with 4 supplements and is composed as follows: volumes 1-4, Palaearctic Fauna with 4 supplements; volumes 5-8, American Fauna (volumes 7 and 8 remained unfinished); volumes 9-12, Indo-Australian Fauna (volumes 11 and 12 remained unfinished); volumes 13-16 African Fauna (volumes 15 and 16 remained unfinished).

      London / New York: William Heinemann / Doubleday, Page & Co., , 1909. - "A Masterpiece of Sympathetic Understanding"Edition de LuxeSigned by the Artist[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. FOUQUE, De La Motte. Undine. Adapted from the German by W.L. Courtney and Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London / New York: William Heinemann / Doubleday, Page & Co., 1909. Edition de Luxe, limited to 1000 large-paper copies signed by the artist, this being copy no. 280. Quarto. Fifteen color plates mounted on brown art paper, with captioned tissue guards. Head- tailpieces. Original full vellum, vignette and lettering stamped in gilt. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Original ribbons ties. Bookplate. Minimal dusting to boards, otherwise a fine and bright copy."With the aqueous world of Undine Rackham found an opportunity to revive and develop his earlier art nouveau linear decorative drawing. especially in the need to incorporate waves and water currents in his pictures. He was thus able to connect a felicitious quality of decoration into his plates, was well as a new feeling for flat pattern which harks back to fin de siècle without being too openly mannered" (Gettings, Arthur Rackham, p. 123)."Although the waves and eddies of Undine bear the mark of Art Nouveau, the work was still another step forward for Rackham, the unity of conception in the line drawings and the colour plates, the assertion of contrast in the moods of the heroine, rendering it a masterpiece of sympathetic understanding" (Hudson, p. 80).Latimore and Haskell p. 34. Riall p. 93.

        Autograph musical quotation signed "Umberto Giordano."

      - 1 page of a bifolium (ca. 136 x 179 mm). Dated Milano, January 26, 1909. In black ink.Three measures from Scene V of the Second Episode of Giordano's opera Marcella. Notated in treble clef on one hand-drawn staff. In 4/4 time. With text "Vedi anch'io l'amor conosco" underlaid.Minor browning, heavier to blank final page; creased at folds, with three short tears, and remnants of adhesive, not affecting quotation. Marcella, first performed at the Teatro Lirico in Milan on November 9, 1907 to a libretto by L. Stecchetti, H. Cain, and J. Adenis, is "a story of love and renunciation across the class barrier. Giordano handled the late Romantic, emotionally vehement idiom of the giovane scuola with ease and fluency, being particularly skilful in weaving into his scores elements of local and historical colour. His stage sense is always sure, and his vocal writing unfailingly effective." Julien Budden in Grove Music Online.
