        MASQUES & PHASES

      London: Arthur L. Humphreys, 1909.. 1909.. Good. ESSAYS BY ROBERT ROSS WHO IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN OSCAR WILDE'S FIRST MALE LOVER AND WAS LATER TO BE WILDE'S EXECUTOR, WITH AN AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY ROSS - Octavo, green cloth titled in gilt on the front cover and the spine with a gilt-rule frame on the front cover. The head of the darkened spine is heavily chipped and torn. xxii, 315 & [i] deckle-edged pages. The overlapping edges of several pages are slightly darkened and creased. A discreet portrait of Robert Ross, clipped from a periodical, is mounted on the title page. The small book label of the "The Times (Book Club)" is mounted at the bottom of the rear pastedown. Good. A superb association copy, from the library of art historian George Charles Williamson, who is referred to on page 181 (and beyond) in the book, with his book label on the front endpaper and an autograph letter signed by the author Robert Ross addressed to him. The letter, penned on 9 inch high by 7 inch wide cream paper framed by a black-ruled mourning frame is tipped in preceding the half-title. In his letter, dated July 23rd, 1918, Robert Ross mentions his illness though he is still making arrangements to travel to Australia on behalf of the Government. Ross died less than 3 months later, in October 1918. Two obituaries, clipped from newspapers, are tipped in at the top of the letter, with the expected offsetting to the letter.The letter reads as follows: "Dear Dr. Williamson, / You are but one of a hundred on my conscience....I am quite unable now to do anything but neglect correspondence! I have no secretary. I have a vast amount of writing to do for Australia. I work at two government offices. I am really so tired and fagged that I can hardly stand. I am trying to get a passport for Australia. But being of military age (I thought it almost unbelievable) I doubt if I shall succeed. I went at last on Sunday to see Mrs. Tait. I found her as charming as her work. She was most amusing on the subject of Australia. Is there anything you think I can do for her or that you suggest that I should do? She ought certainly to have an exhibition. The Fine Arts Society I think would be the best place. Have you heard any news of Frank Hunt[?]? / Yours very sincerely, / Robert Ross".In an Obituary dated October 7, 1918: "Mr. A. Galt Ross, a brother, said that when he saw him last Thursday afternoon, when he was much amused to think that during his period of ill-health the witness had made so much fuss about the trip which he was to undertake to Australia for the Government in connection with Melbourne Art Gallery".Mrs. Tait, to whom Ross refers in his letter, is the watercolor and miniature painter Bess Norriss Tait (1878-1939) who was born in Melbourne.Additionally tipped-in at the rear of the book is a 6-page publication "Address and Presentation to Mr. Robert Ross", the first page of which is in the format of a form letter by Edmund Gosse, and others dated June 2nd, 1915. Gosse's preliminary text states that: "We enclose a copy of the Address which has been forwarded to Mr. Robert Ross and was published in the Press on the 29th March, 1915, together with a complete list of the signatories, exceeding three hundred. Subscriptions were also invited towards a gift or memorais to Mr. Ross and a sum of about 760 [British pounds] has been secured. It was found that Mr. Ross would himself prefer that the money should be devoted to a public object...." Gosse's introductory letter is followed by a list of signatories who support Ross's contribution to art and literature: "We whose names are set down below claim to be counted among your friends or at least your admirers. We desire in the first place to state publicly our recognition of your services to Art and Literature. You have long been distinguished for the justice and courage of your writings, and you have illuminated the expression of your views with humour and resource...." Among the signatories are such notable figures as H.G. Wells, William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, J.M. Barrie, Maxim Gorky, Miss Sands, Siegfried Sassoon, Thomas Hardy, etc. The address is followed by a letter of appreciation from Robert Ross. Printed as a 7-1/2 inch high by 6-7/8 inch wide pamphlet. The edges of the pages are slightly darkened and the pamphlet has a short split along the fold.Openly gay at a time when homosexuality was illegal in England, the journalist, art critic and art dealer Robert Baldwin "Robbie" Ross (1869-1918) was believed to have been Oscar Wilde's first male lover. The grandson of Robert Baldwin (who, with Louis Hippolyte Lafontaine) led Canada to autonomy from Britain), Robbie Ross is believed to have been Oscar Wilde's lover in 1886, before he even went to Cambridge. Openly gay, Ross, a student of King's College, Cambridge was the victim of bullying. He and Wilde were embroiled in frequent scandals and brushes with the law and, following Oscar Wilde's imprisonment in 1895, Ross went abroad. Ross returned and supported Wilde, both emotionally and financially, during Wilde's last years and was with him when he died in 1900. Following Oscar Wilde's death, Ross was appointed literary executor, tracking down and purchasing the rights to Wilde's texts (which had been sold off when Wilde was declared bankrupt) and fighting black market publications of Wilde's works as well as forgeries of erotic works alleged to be by Wilde. In 1908, Ross produced the definitive edition of Wilde's works. From 1901 through 1908, Ross managed London's Carfax Gallery which exhibited works by artists such as Aubrey Beardsley, William Blake and John Singer Sargent. An art critic for The Morning Post, Ross went on to mentor young poets and artists during the First World War, including Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen. Sadly still embroiled in scandal because of his sexuality, Ross and his friends were accused by Noel Pemberton Billings of being one of 47,000 homosexuals who were betraying the nation to the Germans. Even the actress Maud Allan, who played the role of Salome in Wilde's play, was accused by Billings of being part of this "Cult of the Clitoris". Maud Allan's susequent libel suit against Billings caused a national sensation. Robert Ross died suddenly in 1918 as he prepared to travel to Melbourne to open an exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria.The art historian George Charles Williamson (1858-1942) advised J. Pierpont Morgan on some of his purchases and wrote 3 commissioned catalogs on Morgan's collection, including the "Catalogue of the Collection of Jewels and Precious Works of Art, the Property of J. Pierpont Morgan". Other books which he authored and published include "The Miniature Collector: A Guide for the Amateur Collector of Portrait Miniatures", "Holman Hunt", and "Francesco Raibolini called Francia".

        Imperial Cabinet Photograph of a Seated Maricopa Squaw

      - Cabinet card measures 5 3/4" x 3 3/4". Verso is dated August 3, 1909. And mailed from Tombstone to Bisbee [sic] Arizona. Penciled underneath no doubt by the sender "ain't she a brick". David Daniels in his "Photograph's Wet-Place Interlude in Arizona Territory, 1864-1880" in the Journal of Arizona History notes on p. 192 that this was often done of Apache women being photographs from the waist up. Mollie Fly continued to run the Tombstone gallery on her own and in 1905 she published a number of her late husband's famous photographs. She was inducted in 1989 into the Arizona Women's Hall of Fame. A similar photograph measuring 7 1/2" x 4 3/4" sold at the Skinner Auction in 2002 for $811.

Goodsell, Surgeon (p.18 holding rope) "Dr. Goodsell is a descendant of an old English family that has had representatives in America for two hundred and fifty years. His great grandfather was a soldier in Washington's army when Cornwallis surrendered, and his father, George H. Goodsell, spent many adventurous years at sea and fought through the Civil War in the Union army. Dr. Goodsell was born near Leechburg, Pa., in 1873. He received his medical degree from Pulte Medical College, Cincinnati, O., and has since practised medicine at New Kensington, Pa., specializing in clinical microscopy. He is a member of the Homeopathic Medical Society of Pennsylvania and of the American Medical Association. At the time of his departure on the expedition he was president of the Allegheny Valley Medical Society. His publications include "Direct Microscopic Examination as Applied to Preventive Medicine and the Newer Therapy" and "Tuberculosis and Its Diagnosis." "Dr. Goodsell was a solid, sturdy, self-made physician of Pennsylvania stock. His specialism in microscopy I trusted might give valuable results in a field not hitherto investigated in the North. He was to make microscopic studies of the germ diseases of the Eskimos." quotation from Peary in this book.#5) Charles Percy, steward (p.17 with apron on) Charles Percy, my steward, was a native of Newfoundland… "Hansen in the field and Percy as steward were the same as ever, invaluable in their respective lines. Chief Engineer Wardwell, also of the last expedition, aided by his assistant Scott, kept the machinery up to a high state of efficiency and has given the Roosevelt the force and power which enabled her to negotiate apparently impracticable ice." quoted from The Conquest of the North Pole, The New York Times, September 12 1909.

        Artificial and Natural Flight With 95 illustrations.

(William Genth was an arcade operator and game reseller. He had a manufacturing company in Cleveland, Ohio). Bound within: Original advertising of "Artificial and Natural Flight" - It is of especial interest and value to those making a study of Aeroplanes". American-born (Maine, 1840) Sir Hiram S. Maxim was rather unsuccessful as a designer of flying machines, but one of the contraptions he invented to simulate flight became one of the most successful amusement park rides of his time, and one that is still popular today, the "Captive Flying Machine." He held numerous patents on items ranging from light bulbs to hair-curling irons, but his great success was the "Maxim Gun." It was a machine gun that proved crucial in the Colonial wars of the British Empire, and which was largely improved by the invention of smokeless gunpowder by one other prolific inventor of the era, Hudson Maxim, who happened to be Hiram's brother. Maxim's true interest since his early years was flight and flying machines, and perhaps the invention and sale of guns was but a means of financing his experiments in flight. A small correction, most likely by Maxim himself, is inserted on p. x of the preface, where a number 20 is crossed out and replaced by a 10 in ink. Boards soiled and discolored at the edges, but still sturdy. Text very clean. Ninety five drawings and photographs. Overall, a good copy of this early treatise by one of the most interesting characters to undertake the exploration of human flight.. London/New York, Whittaker & Co., 1908. 8°. XV, 166 pages.

John Guille Millais (24 March 1865 ?- 24 March 1931), known as "Johnny" Millais, was an English artist, naturalist, gardener and travel writer who specialised in wildlife and flower portraiture. He travelled extensively around the world in the late Victorian period detailing wildlife often for the first time. He is noted for illustrations that are of a particularly exact nature. Millais is one of the most respected of British ornithologists and bird artists producing between 1890 and 1914 a series of books on birds and other natural history subjects. In the study of ornithology he was renowned for his portraiture of wildfowl and game birds, the subjects of his three most famous works: Natural History of British Feeding Ducks;British Diving Ducks and British Game Birds. They rank amongst some of the finest work on wildfowl ever published. Each bird receives individual treatment in text and detailed exact chromolithographs, some of which are by his friend and pre-eminent bird artist of the day Archibald Thorburn (1860?-1935). Each species is represented by two or three individuals on a plate drawn in attitudes of feeding, resting and courtship. The books are lavish and with just 400 to 600 original editions published are now prized as examples of a certain type of High Victorian grandeur. Millais?' skills are essentially Victorian, as private wealth allowed him to indulge on a grand scale his passions. He was undoubtedly tenacious. His son Raoul Millais spoke of him as an "astonishing man and his power of concentration was such that once he took up a subject he never left it until he knew more about it than anyone in the World". This tenacity to get a job done to the best of abilities was never better illustrated in his preparations for Mammals of Great Britain and Ireland (1904) where he spent months with the whaling fleet in the Atlantic in order to study first hand a group of mammals that had hitherto received little attention. The work which appeared in a limited print run in 1904 also contains illustrations and chromolithographs by George Edward Lodge (1860?-1954) and Archibald Thorburn. He also wrote biographies of his father John Everett Millais and Frederick Courtney Selous. In addition there were important authoritative works on rhododendrons,azaleas and magnolias and also a number of sculptures of birds including one of fighting game birds now owned by the Horsham Museum.

        The Great Sea Horse.

      Little, Brown and Company, Boston 1909 - Small 4to. Faux full vellum with gilt lettering and elaborate pictorial giltstamping. xii, 251pp. Top edge gilt. Tipped-in color frontispiece with tissue guard with printed caption, 23 full-page color plates (as called for) also with tissue guards with printed captions, pictorial endpapers. Very good. Scarce and lovely first edition of this author's first children's book -- the edition on handmade paper limited to 300 numbered copies (this #96). "The Great Sea Horse" is very reminiscent of Charles Kingsley's children's novel "The Water-Babies, A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby," and its superb color plates by illustrator John Elliott remind one of Jessie Willcox Smith's "Water-Babies" illustrations -- Anderson notes in her preface "the fantastic water fairies with real shells, curious fish, and birds of the ocean." This unique copy came from the personal collection of famed Boston bookseller Charles E. Goodspeed (1867-1950). Goodspeed had a second home in Boca Grande, Florida, and gave a small number of books (including this one) to the local library there, the Johann Fust Community Library whose bookplate appears on the front pastedown. Better yet, this copy was the personal copy of author Isabel Weld Perkins Anderson (1867-1948), the Boston heiress and author, wife of noted diplomat Larz Anderson (1866-1937). Her estate in Brookline, Massachusetts, was a castle known as Weld Estate, and was horticulturally significant because of its lush extensive gardens (now the Larz Anderson Park). Her "Library of Isabel and Larz Anderson" Weld bookplate graves the front pastedown, and a small typed note on the front flyleaf (likely placed there by Goodspeed) notes, "This copy belongs on Globe Table in Living Room at Weld House Brookline." A choice association copy, being the author's personal copy of her own book, thence to the private collection of Boston's most famous bibliopole. Accompanied by two booklets: First, a lovely third printing of the scarce booklet, "Bibliography of the Works of ISABEL ANDERSON LL.D., Litt.D. (Mrs. Larz Anderson)," a 16mo 12pp leaflet in dust jacket published in 1935 by C.A.A. Parker of Medford, Massachusetts. Near fine in very good jacket. And secondly, "A Biographical Sketch of LARZ ANDERSON (New York: James T. White & Co., 1914), a 16mo 4pp booklet in stiff brown wrappers. Near fine. both of these are also Charles Goodspeed's copies, with the bookplate of the Johann Fust Community Library of Boca Grande, Florida on inside front wrapper.

      [London]: [J.M. Dent], 1909. Hard Cover. Very Good. Aubrey Beardsley. Aubrey Beardsley. Hard Cover. Second Edition. 1 of 1500 copies of which 1000 were for the United Kingdom and 500 for the U.S. This is the first edition published in one volume. The text was taken as written by Sir Thomas Malory and imprinted by William Caxton at Westminster in 1485, but now spelled in modern style. In his introduction, Professor John Rhys describes Le Morte as incomparable. The same can be said for Aubrey Beardsley's beautiful and remarkable designs ( a term he preferred to "illustrations"). Beardsley was only 20 years old when Dent commissioned him to do all of the designs for this work. It was a leap of faith on the part of Dent in to take a chance on an unproven artist. The illustrations were done during 1892-1894 for the initial issue in parts, beginning in June 1893. There are sixteen full page and four double-page illustrations, 43 borders, 288 chapter headings, initial letters and ornaments (many repeated). According to Lasner 22B, this edition includes ten additional chapter headings inadvertently omitted from the first edition. Large quarto bound in the publisher's green cloth with designs in gilt by Beardsley on the front cover and spine. Some bumping to spine and boards, and very small creases to top and bottom of spine. The covers are quite nice with bright gilt Beardsley design. Offsetting to endpapers, but the text pages are in very good condition, and the illustrations are clean and bright. The paper shows only the lightest of aging. In very good condition. i-liv pages with Rhys and Caxton prefaces, and the table of contents. 624 pages. LIT/102814.
