        Trans-Himalaya: Discoveries and Adventures in Tibet Three volumes

      London: Macmillan and Co.. Good with no dust jacket. 1910-13. Hardcover. Volume One has the rear board almost detached, with the rear hinge broken and the cloth split along most of the rear joint. Volumes Two and Three have a darker area on the spine, and Volume One has the entire spine darker than one would expect when compared to the fading of the spines on the other two volumes. The darker colour seems be due to dye applied to the spine to cover up faded areas where labels have been removed, hence possibly an ex-library set. There are no other signs of being ex-library other than the unusual treatment to the spines. Volume One has chips and tears to the margins of the first leaf of the Preface, with no loss of text. Gutters split at front and rear hinge of Volume Two and at rear hinge of Volume Three. A few short 1" and smaller tears to the margins of some of the folding maps. Rear free endpaper lacking in each volume. A good working set.; xxiii, [1], 436; xvii, [1], 441; xv, [1], 426 pages + advertisements + 544 illustrations (388 numbered illustrations in volumes I and II, including frontispieces, + 155 numbered illustrations in volume III + frontispiece in volume III) + 14 maps (including 4 colour folding maps). Volumes I and II: Second printing, 1910. Volume III: First printing, 1913. [NB: These are second and first printings of the first English edition, not the smaller format colonial edition which had far fewer illustrations.] Red cloth boards. Gilt illustration on front board of each volume. Page dimensions: 224 x 148mm. Top page edges gilt. "The illustrations should be leniently criticized; with one or two exceptions they are from my own photographs and sketches. Perhaps they will give the reader some notion of the lonely country, the dizzy heights of the Trans-Himalaya, and of my old friends, the amiable, unassuming nomads." - from the author's preface to the third volume. The third volume is less common than the first two volumes. The third volume includes some historical chapters together with the account of Hedin's own explorations. Contents of Volume III: From the Source of the Indus through Unknown Country; The Nomads of Yumba-Matsen; Over the Indus Again; Over the Trans-Himalaya to Gartok; To the Confluence of the Indus Arms; In Dark, Dank Cloister Walls; The Last Days on the Indus; In Ladak for the Last Time; The Selipuk Monastery; The Models of Kyangyang; Over the Trans-Himalaya for the Last Time; The Trans-Himalaya in Ancient times and the Middle Ages - The Catholic Missionaries; The Jesuits - D'Anville - The First Englishmen - Ritter, Humboldt, and Huc; The Trans-Himalaya from the Middle of the Nineteenth Century up to the Present; A Critical Situation; To the Convent of "St. Sow'; Manasarowar in Ancient and Modern Times; The First Englishmen at the Holy Lake; The Latest Reports; A Dizzy Passage of the Sutlej; The Ravines of the Sutlej; A Picturesque Monastery; In the Sanctuary of the Mangnang Monastery; His Excellency the Churl; The First Jesuit in Tibet; Lamaism and Catholicism; In the Labyrinth of Tributaries; The Devil's Cauldron of the Ngari-Tsangpo; Down to the Sutlej; Farewell to Tibet; Between Sky and Water; A Learned Lama from Hungary; My Amazonian Escort; The Last; Index.

        Bo?stva a kulty [Divinities and cults]

      self-published (tip. Politika), Prague 1910 - Octavo (22.5 × 19 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; [21] pp., [6] leaves of plates, of which five color woodcuts; thirteen small vignettes in the text. Wrappers professionally restored to lower corners and edges; internally fine, with the plates in bright color. First edition of this book of occult-themed verse, accompanied by five full-page color woodcuts by the visionary mystic Czech painter and graphic artist Josef Váchal (1884-1969). The poet ?imánek (1883-1959) was a member of the hermeticist group Universalia and the symbolist movement Sursum, both of which were heavily influenced by occult theosophical and occult interests. Though a major Czech modernist writer, and considered by some a pioneer of Czech science fiction, ?imánek is today largely neglected. An important collaboration between poet and artist, combining attractive typography with Váchal's evocative and exotic color woodcuts. This is copy 179 of only 260 numbered copies. The colophone notes that "no new editions of this book will ever be printed," suggesting that Váchal's printing blocks were to be destroyed after its production. Sá ka 131. KVK, OCLC show the copies at the Austrian National Library, Penn State, and University of Illinois. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Baseball In The Big Leagues: A Book for Boys (in rare original dust jacket)

      Reilly & Britton, Chicago 1910 - Tan cloth lettered and with design of a baseball pitcher in wind up pose printed in red, black and grey. 308 pps. Illustrated with full page photographic plates. A fine, tight, bright example. In the rare original dust jacket with design duplicating that of the decorated cloth, some light rubbing to the panels, s short crinkeled tear top front panel and shallow wear at the spine extremities. The second edition, here retitled from the original "Touching Second". One of the keystone titles of early baseball, an anecdotal how-to from the Chicago Cubs second baseman and middle man of the famed "Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance" double play combination. Evers, known as "The Crab" as much for his personality (he was not on speaking terms with Mr. Tinker) as for his scuttling fielding style, was highly if grudingly repected by players of his era for his brainy "inside" style of play. The full page photo illustrations include Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson, teammate Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown and others. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The work follows a bride and groom as they proceed through the specifics of Japanese marriage, from the meeting with the matrimonial broker through the simple yet elegant ceremony. A fine copy of a fragile book.

Faithful Friends; Pictures and Stories for Little Folk. London: Blackie & Son Limited, n..d., [ca. 1910]. First edition with full-color plates. Quarto. (10 x 7 11/16 inches; 254 x 195 mm) 88 unnumbered pages. Title-page printed in red and black. With six full page, full color, and two black and white, illustrations by Rackham, all signed and dated "A Rackham 1901". Many other color and black and white illustrations by Cecil Aldin, Felix Leigh, A.M. Hutton, Louis Wain, Gunning King, EAC [Edward Caldwell], Fannie Moody, M.E.E [Mary Ellen Edwards], M. Dixon, and others. Text by various authors. Publisher's quarter red cloth over boards, front cover in full color with illustration of a Horse and a Dog, lettered in red with black outline. Lower cover with black and white pictorial advertisement for "Grimm's Fairy Tales". Plain end-papers, school prize label dated "Midsummer 1912" on front paste-down. A near fine copy. This title was first published in 1901 and had the same illustrations but in 'two-color' as opposed to the 'full-color' illustrations contained herein. Richard Riall discusses a copy that he had which had a presentation label dated 1913 but in which the plates were neither signed nor dated. Latimore & Haskell and Derek Hudson declare 1913 as the year of this book's first publication, yet the plates by Rackham are dated "1901." COPAC notes a copy and assigns "1902" as publication date but without explanation. OCLC notes a copy, "Printed by Blackie and Son Limited at the Villafield Press, Glasgow"-Cover./ Publisher's advertisement on p. [iv] of cover, for Hassall Nursery Series./ Binding: Pictorial boards with red cloth spine. Color illustration on cover of horse and dog," and assigns the date as 1913 (Riall notes this edition as 1904). We have seen another, similar undated edition in green cloth with a color illustration of dog and horse on laid to green cloth. And yet another edition, with pictorial boards similar to the copy under notice, in green cloth. In over fifty years of specializing in the works of Arthur Rackham this is only the second copy of the true first full-color edition that we have ever seen or heard of. Illustrations by Arthur Rackham: (by leaf signature): 1. L11 "Playful Puppies" (Full-page, full color) 2. L22 "Waiting for the Train" (Full-page, full color) 3.

(citing 1913 edition - not seen). Hudson p. 176. (citing 1913 edition). Gettings p.178. (citing 1913 edition). Hamilton p. 189. (citing 1913 edition).

        Famous Personalities from Montecarlo.

      [c. 1910] - Size: 725 x 515 mm. Mounted size 855 x 640 mm. Very good condition. Lithograph. Printed colour. Georges Goursat (1863-1934), known as Sem, attained a high level of success with his wonderful portrayals of Paris at the turn of the century. This outstanding caricaturist was a member of the Salon des Humoristes and an officer of the Legion of Honor. His works offer us glimpses into Parisian high society at the turn of the Century. Sem's unique talent made his work very identifiable, particularly because of the essential sobriety of his composition, in which his characters usually emerge from a white or plain background rather than being more obvious caricatures. Sem captured the spirit of the subject and in turn produced images that were true to life. This wonderful print is a brilliant example of Sem's series "Famous Personalities from Montecarlo", published in Paris c.1910.

        [Photo Album]: New England Vacations 1910-1925

      Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire. 1910. Oblong small quarto measuring 7" x 11". String-tied black leather over paper boards with "photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 174 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs, as well as 15 cyanotypes. All measuring between 1.5" x 1.5" and 3" x 5" with some captions. Album has some tears at the spine fold and edgewear thus very good with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a New England woman which documents trips with her family and friends, almost exclusively women, throughout the region between 1912 and 1928. Many of the early photos show women posing in nice dresses and hats with fans in summer gardens. Following this are photos from a camping trip to Fort Pond in Acton, Massachusetts. These include cyanotype prints of women on horseback and one of a woman in men's clothes smoking a pipe. That same woman is seen again in men's clothes next to a woman in a dress and the print has been cut into the shape of a heart, she's also seen later pulling up a woman's skirt to show her ankles. There are a few interior shots from what appear to be parties and social gatherings of ladies and their families smiling for the camera. One group of photos shows a 1914 road trip to Edgartown and Lambert's Cover in Martha's Vineyard. They took a trip to Marblehead to go fishing and generally seemed to enjoy the outdoors with many of the pictures showing them climbing trees, hiking, and going to beaches. A later trip to York Beach shows a woman happily holding a large catch of fish and posing romantically on rocks gazing out to sea. One section shows a winter trip to Dalton, Massachusetts and Lincoln, New Hampshire which includes skiing, sledding, and many images of the group walking with snow shoes. The final pages of the album focus mainly on a trip to Mount Washington and the White Mountains in New Hampshire. These photos show more outdoor excursions with the ladies taking burros to the top of Mount Willard and posing on the top of Mount Washington. The snapshots show the beauty of the New England region from its mountains to its beaches as captured by a group of young women.A large collection of images depicting outdoorsy women enjoying a variety of activities from 1912 until 1928. .

        Before the Honorable Secretary of the Interior of the United States of America: In the Matter of the Order Issued by the Honorable Secretary of the Interior, to the City and County of San Francisco, to Show Cause Why Certain Portions of the Garfield Permit Should Not Be Revoked (with maps)

      San Francisco: James H. Barry, 1910. 1st. Leather bound. First Edition. Large 8vo. iii, 176 pp. 2 color maps dated March, 1910 by J. H. Dockweiler, consulting engineer to the attorney for the city of San Francisco from 1904-1916 - one large folding map is titled "Map showing Location of Hetch Hetchy Valley and Yosemite Valley (Scenic Park) and Lake Elsinore in the Yosemite National Park." The second map (singled page) is titled "Map showing location of the Proposed Municipal Water District to be served from the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir Site." Includes three sections: Written Return of Respondent to Order to Show Cause by Percy Long; and two by J. H. Dockweiler: Report on the Domestic Sources of Water Supply and Report on the Tuolomne River source of Water Supply. Red leatherette with floral endpapers. Tape repairs to spine; chips to front edge; 2 restored short tears to folding map where affixed to inside rear cover; else a very good copy of an uncommon title (not in Cowan nor Rocq). Beginning in the 19th century, the Hetch Hetchy Valley was viewed as a potential source of drinking water for San Francisco. This interest generated a tremendous amount of controversy and resistance, in the early days led by the Sierra Club and its founder, John Muir who saw the Hetch Hetchy Valley as a prized natural resource calling it "one of Nature's rarest and most precious mountain temples". As early as 1890, the first proposal for damming Hetch Hetchy Valley was made by San Francisco Mayor James Phelan. Appeals and denials of appeals ensued. In 1908, the City of San Francisco filed a petition asking the Secretary of the Interior, James Garfield to reopen San Francisco's application for water rights, requesting both Lake Eleanor and Hetch Hetchy Valley. Subsequently, the application was approved by Garfield only four days after he received it. Sierra Club leaders form a new organization, "The Society for the Preservation of National Parks" with notable figures across the country as leaders, to further publicize the campaign against the dam. The new Secretary of the Interior Richard Ballinger suspended the Interior Department's approval for the Hetch Hetchy right-of-way, and on Feb. 25, 1910 requested the City of San Francisco to "show cause" why Hetch Hetchy Valley should not be removed from the Garfield grant. Here is the city attorney's response to such request. And the battle for Hetch Hetchy Valley continues to this day.

      Lacreek, SD: Charles A. Bates. Good. 1910. Softcover. Folding map, 24 x 36 inches, in original paper covers. Covers quite wrinkled, land seeker's name appears in pencil on front cover. Tears at map folds neatly repaired on back with archival tape, a few small losses at fold junctures, some light staining. As part of the Allotment Act, Bennett County was created in 1909 from lands belonging to the Pine Ridge Reservation. To this day the Oglala Sioux tribe does not recognize that the land was legally removed from the original reservation boundaries, and tribal members living in the Lacreek District in Bennett County have representation on the tribal council. This plat map shows every piece of land in the new county, with numbers for each section and the names of each land owner. Most of the names are Sioux, such as Kills Enemy, Warrior Woman, Holy Bear, Yellow Hawk, Wolf Soldier, and many others. The site of the no-longer existing town of Lacreek is shown at the lower center, northeast of Merriman, Nebraska, which was the "nearest railroad point to the lands to be opened." Merriman and Lacreek are shown connected by a "Stage and Telephone Line." The town of Martin, today the county seat, had not yet been founded, but its name is written in at its present location in pencil by the land-seeker. Railroads, proposed railroads, timber and open lands, swamps, rivers, hills and trails are all noted, with a key to them at lower left. Inside front cover is an advertisement for the land offering from the Interstate Land Co. , with offices in Merriman and Lacreek: "Several thousand acres of the richest portion of Pine Ridge Reservation, Bennett County, surrounding Lacreek, S. Dakota, thrown open to settlement...The incoming of settlers during the next few months will increase values enormously...." Back cover announces: "Lacreek South Dakota, The Town with a Future, Look for it On the Map...Peter E. Scalander, Manager." Exceedingly rare map prepared to aid settlers and speculators in locating allotted Indian lands. Only two copies in OCLC as of April 2017. Please call for more images. .

        Balcony House, Mesa Verde National Park - Photograph

      Very Good. Toned photograph of Balcony House, Mesa Verde National Park in winter. Photograph taken after 1910 excavation. Photograph has sepia tones and measures 16" wide by 10" tall. Light wear to corners and light soiling to back of photo. After reviewing a collection of 24 photographs acquired from the Pennington heir collection, it seems that most said photographs were artist proofs due to many identical images with slight variations in exposure. William Marion Pennington photographed people and landscapes across the Southern United States in the early 1900's. In 1907, he and fellow photographer, Lisle Updike opened Pen-Dike Studio in Durango, Colorado; Pennington managing the studio, doing portrait work and operating the dark room, and Updike taking photos in nearby towns and mining camps. In 1911 Pennington took sole control of the studio and renamed it Pennington Studio. Around this time he also obtained a contract from the National Park Service to photograph the cliff dwelling at Mesa Verde National Park. This photograph depicts Balcony House, which was occupied by the Ancestral Puebloans from around A. D. 1180 to 1280 and has 40 rooms. Along with many of the other cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde, occupation at Balcony House ended around A. D. 1300. ; 1 pp .

        The Riddle of the Sands.

      London, Smith Elders & Co.1910. Second edition. 8vo. Publisher's decorated black cloth, titles in white to the spine, unfortunately virtually all of the white lettering has chipped off. Light fraying to head of spine. Decorated boards sharp and clean with a couple of splashmarks. Internally clean.Illustrated with fold out maps and charts.A very good copy of the second edition of a book contentiously described as the first modern espionage novel, vying for the title with Kipling's Kim, published two years earlier. Originally written after he returned injured from action in South Africa and first published in 1903 the novel of encroaching conflict with Germany was highly influential and is actually credited with the founding of British naval bases at Invergordon and Scapa Flow; newly regarded as strategically important after examination of the scenarios in Childer's novel. Childers was of course a staunch advocate of Irish Home Rule and was found guilty of possessing a firearm in contravention of the Irish Emergency Powers Resolution and sentenced to death by firing squad in 1922. His characteristically humourous last words to the firing squad were 'Take a step or two closer lads, it'll be easier that way.' Author, soldier and intelligence officer :1 , British Government: nil. Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [382]. Listed in The Observer's All-Time 100 Best Novels [2003].

        Stollwerck Chocolade - Gustav Tischer.

      Serie van 6 ontwerpen voor Stollwerck?s Chocolade plaatjes ca. 1910. Aquarel en gouache op velijnpapier door Gustav Tischer, gemonogrammeerd. Afmetingen elk ca. 6,5 x 13,5. Als set in 1 lijst.Rond de wisseling van de 19e naar de 20e eeuw was chocolade een lekkernij voor de gegoede orde die alleen op bijzondere gelegenheden werd genoten. In 1912 kostte 1 reep zoveel als 20 broodjes.In de jaren 90 van de 19e eeuw begon Stollwerck bij zijn chocoladerepen plaatjes toe te voegen. Oorspronkelijk werden de plaatjes verzameld in sigarendoosjes, maar later ontstond het idee net als bij postzegels de plaatjes in albums op te bergen. De repen werden veelal verkocht via chocolade automaten. Binnen een paar jaar na de invoering van de verzamelplaatjes steeg de omzet met 40 procent. Stollwerck hechtte grote waarde aan de vormgeving van de series en reserveerde 100.000 mark om bekende kunstenaars voor het ontwerp ervan aan te trekken, dat lukte bij Max Liebermann, Elli Hirsch en ook Gustav Tischer.De onderwepen reflecteerden de laatste stand van de wetenschap van die tijd en ze droegen bij aan de vorming van de bevolking. De plaatjes werden graag op scholen ingezet omdat schoolboeken nauwelijks kleurrijk beeldmateriaal bevatten.De ontwikkeling van de verzamelplaatjes verliep in Europa vrijwel tegelijkertijd. In Nederland begint Verkade in 1903 met de productie van de bij ons bekende plaatjes.Bij de aanvang van de eerste wereldoorlog zette Stollwerck de productie van de verzamelplaatjes stop. Pas in 1930 verschenen er weer een paar series, maar zonder groot succes.Prijs: ?1.250,- (incl. lijst, incl. 21% BTW).

        Poems of the Past & Present.

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1910 - Octavo. Original green cloth, titles gilt to spine and front, top edge gilt. Spine a little darkened, ends and corners rubbed, some marks to cloth and the boards somewhat bowed, front free endpaper excised, first blank tanned, a good copy. 3pp publisher's advertisements at the rear. Errata slip tipped in at contents. First edition, first impression, of Radcliffe-Hall's book of poems, this copy annotated by a committee of contemporary female poets. The front free endpaper has the ownership inscription of "Eliot Bliss, 67 Carlton Hill, St John's Wood, London N.W.8." and is further annotated in her hand "This Book has been ANNOTATED and Revised, after much careful consideration (to which the 3 editors devoted one whole evening) by the following - Miss Eliot Bliss, poet + novelist, Mrs Anna Wickham (distinguished poet!) Miss Constance Spencer, musician, All being personally acquainted wih the LIFE & LETTERS of Miss Radclyffe HALL, Dec 1926, London." Eliot Bliss (1903-90) was a Jamaican-born, London-based novelist and poet who was supported by Vita-Sackville-West, and whose novels (Saraband, The Luminous Isle, The Albatross) explored lesbian themes. She was romantically involved with "distinguished" poet Anna Wickham (1883-1947), who lived a bohemian literary life between London and Paris (where in the 20s she fell in love with the "Amaon" of Paris Natalia Barney). Her poems were published by Harold Munro of the Poetry Bookshop. We cannot trace the "musician" Constance Spencer. This fascinating copy has been annotated with revise,d mostly mocking, titles. Though clearly the product of an evening's facetious entertainment, this copy nonetheless presents a compelling example of contemporary avant-garde readers' responses to the poems of this notable modernist lesbian author.

Very good condition. Presented in hand finished stained oak frame with UV glass. One of a series of photos taken by William Amos Haines (1877–1953), who travelled through the United States in the first decades of the 20th century making early panoramas with a rotating Kodak Cirkut camera. He was particularly interested in California's Spanish missions, and took photographs of a number of these sites around 1910. Mission San Juan Capistrano was founded in 1776 and is home to the oldest building in California still in use, a chapel built in 1782. It is well known for its beautiful architecture, picturesque ruins, and the swallows that nest there in spring.
