        Photo Album]: San Francisco Earthquake and Seattle World's Fair

      San Francisco and Seattle 1909 - Oblong small octavo. Measuring 6" x 7". Black textured leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 128 sepia-toned or black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring between 1" x 1" and 4" x 5", some with captions. Very good album with rubbing and edgewear with near fine photographs.A photo album beginning with a trip to the Seattle World's Fair in 1909 through 1914. The photographs are not in chronological order. The fair's theme was Alaska--Yukon--Pacific Exposition and was originally set to take place in 1907 for the 10th anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush but was pushed back to 1909 due to a conflict with the Jamestown Exposition. The photos begin with snapshots around the city and of the coast. There are images of Seattle harbor with sailboats in the distance as well as large cruise ships and the wooded areas surrounding the city. The fair also included exhibits from Canada and Japan, as well as Alaskan Native American tribes and the Igorrotes from the Philippines. The Igorrotes are seen in snapshots participating in tribal dances, climbing trees, and holding spears. One of these photos shows a young Igorrotes boy, with the shadow of a bowler hat-wearing fairgoer at his feet. Other photos show candids of fashionably dressed revelers walking through the exhibit as well as photos of the architecture of the fair and scenes from exhibits including the maple ice cream stand in the Canadian section. Later photos show men hiking in the Washington wilderness as well as boating and shooting. Photos from 1910 show a trip to "the seaside" with images of men and women posed on a beach and in a large boat. Towards the end of the album the photographs show the results of an earthquake which appears to be the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. These photos show ruined buildings and people walking around the rubble. One photo shows San Francisco Victorian homes with blown out windows. The final pages show the travelers posed for candids and portraits while hiking and on picnics in Northern California and Washington and includes a photo strip images of a couple. A wonderful collection of well-composed travel photographs featuring events in Seattle and San Francisco. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mars efter Lowell's Glober 1894-1914.

      Denmark, 1909 - Life on Mars Papier mâché globe (diameter 210 mm), plaster coating, original ink and body hand-colour, varnished, bronze stem and base (overall height 420 mm). A rare and fascinating manuscript globe of Mars, made during a period of renewed interest in the red planet and suggestive of the possibility of Martian civilisation. Emmy Ingeborg Brun was a Danish socialist and astronomer. She was very interested in the work of contemporary astronomers Percival Lowell, Camille Flammarion, Giovanni Schiaparelli. In 1855 Schiaparelli observed a network of dark lines on the Martian surface, and when he published his findings, along with the first detailed modern map of Mars, he named them "canali", meaning natural channels. When his work was translated, the "canali" were interpreted as manmade canals. Flammarion agreed with this interpretation and suggested that they were remnants of a system redistributing water across the surface of a planet, created by a now-dying population. Lowell popularised these theories by publishing three books on the subject, claiming these lines were indeed a canal network and raising the possibility of a Martian civilisation. Brun was intrigued by these canals, which she saw as evidence of a different, more co-operative form of society. Mars was the potential site for a socialist utopia. She adapted Lowell's maps into manuscript globes, painting her interpretations on top of existing printed globes, and donated them to various European astronomical observatories and universities. The globe uses Lowell's territorial observations and Schiaperelli's nomenclature for the features, most of which is no longer used. The North Pole is inscribed "Nix 1909", and the bronze base carries the inscription "Free Land. Free Trade. Free Men", a slogan inspired by the work of the political economist Henry George, and a line from the Lord's Prayer: "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven". We have traced seven institutional examples: the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich; National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh; Whipple Museum of the History of Science, Cambridge; Museo Specula Vaticana, the Vatican; Museum Observatoire Camille Flammarion, Juvisy-sur-Orge; Ole Rømer Museet, Taastrup; Randy and Yulia Liebermann Lunar and Planetary Exploration Collection. One example appeared at auction at Bonham's New York on 5th December 2012, selling for $50,000 (Lot 129).

        The Works of E.A. Poe (including Tales of Mystery and Imagination).

      New York: The Chesterfield Society / Bigelow Smith and Company 1909.. EDITION DE LUXE, printed for subscribers, limited to 1000 numbered sets (this being out-of-series). Crown octavo; 10 volumes complete. A beautiful edition, illustrated with fine photogravures and black and white plates, title-page printed in gilt and colours. Elegantly hand-bound in recent brown half morocco with red and green title labels, gilt tooling to spines, matching brown cloth boards, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. A clean, fine set, inside and out. A seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, Poe exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Doyle, Verne, and Baudelaire. This collection of Poe's best stories contains all the terrifying and bewildering tales that characterize his work, as well as the Gothic horror of 'The Pit and the Pendulum' with other similarly wierd tales, together with all three of the landmark cases featuring his ground-breaking detective Auguste Dupin; the history of the detective story begins with the publication of 'The Murders In the Rue Morgue' (Matthews). He was a writer of genius who was interested in crime, especially violent death, in cryptograms, and the whole process of logical deduction (Quayle). Poe's mystery of 'The Purloined Letter' is a prototype of spy stories like those of James Bond (Haining).

He hunted and bagged members of the big five plus plains game. This is one of the best books ever written on Mozambique (on which there is not much in print) as well as an excellent big game hunting book. Because of the obscurity of the printer and likelihood that only a small number of copies were printed the book has always been RARE and extremely hard to obtain. VG+. In 35 years, this is only the 6th copy we've had. Two bookplates, one of which is firearms expert Paul Roberts.
