        MEXICO: CARTA GENERAL DE LA REPUBLICA MEXICANA FORMADA EN LA SECRETARIA DE FOMENTO POR DISPOSICON DEL SECRETARIO DEL RAMO, LIC. OLEGARIO MOLINA. 1910.

      Mexico City 1910 - Chromolithograph, augmented with original outline hand color, on 4 un-joined sheets (Very Good, a totally uncut, un-joined example with wide outer margins, exquisite original color, some tears in blank margins since closed, some very light creasing, inconspicuous 7 inch (18 cm) tear entering map on northwest sheet since closed with no loss, some minor stains and abrasions with very slight surface loss to northwest sheet), each sheet: 29.5 x 36.5 inches (75 x 92.5 cm), that if joined would form a map approximately 57 x 71 inches (145 x 180 cm), with a printed area: 49.5 x 60.5 inches (126 x 164 cm). Extremely Rare &#150; the most accurate and historically important map of Mexico of the early 20th Century, being the authoritative national map used during the Mexican Revolution (1910-20), representing the culmination of over three decades of advanced surveys conducted by the Comisión Geográfico-Exploradora. This extremely rare and large wall map is the most important national map of Mexico of its era, representing the apogee of scientific cartography undertaken by the elite official mapping agency, the Comisión Geográfico-Exploradora (CGE), from 1877 to 1910; as well as being the authoritative general map of the republic used during the Mexican Revolution (1910-20) and the decade of national reconstruction that followed. Issued in Mexico City by the GCE under the supervision of Olegario Molina Solís (who served as Mexico&#146;s Minister of Public Works and Industry from 1907 to 1911), a professionally trained surveyor, the map was by far the most accurate and detailed general map of Mexico created prior to the early 1930s. In good part based on groundbreaking surveys, it is one of the signature products of the Porfiriato, the long rule of the Mexican strongman Porfirio Díaz Mori, which saw vast strides in the republic&#146;s industrial and scientific development. Incredibly, the map not only shows all of Mexico&#146;s major settlements, ports, roads, and its burgeoning railway system, but it also labels and names major country estates and ranches, a level of detail seldom seen on a general map of such as large country. While the Molina map was originally intended to serve civilian purposes, such as overseeing economic development and infrastructure projects, shortly after its creation the nation was plunged into a decade of complex internecine conflict, ensuring that the map&#146;s seminal role was transformed into being a strategic military aid. The box located in the lower-right corner of the southeastern sheet features important information, including the &#145;Signos&#146; (Legend), which describes the symbols used to denote the classifications of settlements including: the National Capital, State Capitals; other Major Cities; &#145;Villa&#146; (smaller cities); &#145;Pueblo&#146; (towns); &#145;Congregación&#146; (rural churches); named &#145;Haciendas&#146; (country estates); named &#145;Ranchos&#146; (ranches); &#145;Estacion de Ferrocarril&#146; (railway stations); &#145;Puerto de Altura y Aduana&#146; (major ports for capital ships with customs houses); &#145;Cabotaje&#146; (anchorages); railway lines; and political boundaries. To the right, the &#145;Abreviaturas&#146; describes the single letter abbreviations used to denote geographical features. Under the heading, &#145;Ejecucion&#146; (Execution), lists the names of all of the senior CGE engineers who worked on the project leading to the creation of the map. Occupying the lower-left portion of the southwestern sheet, the &#145;Coordenas Geograficas&#146; features hundreds of geodetic co-ordinates of various locations, all ascertained by way of advanced astronomical observations, being the vital data that underpinned the accuracy of the map.

Espectacular encuadernación de arte en plena piel chagreen albero, cabezadas en piel azul marino, alegórica y preciosa decoración de mosaico también en piel con estampaciones en oro y gofrado con arquillos todo en ambos planos y lomera, camisa para protección de encuadernación en media piel y bandas con filetes dorados, guardas y camisa decoradas con papel pintado al agua y encerado, presentada en magnífico estuche de petaca de cartoné rígido y forrado en tela verde agua en interior y papel pintado también al agua en el exterior, hemos conservado tela estampada de la cubierta y 2/3 de la lomera de la encuadernación de origen adheridos al estuche. Sombra apenas perceptible en corte delantero hacia el pie. Excelente ejemplar de este clásico según el ilustrador de libros inglés, más que destacado representante de la "edad de oro" de la ilustración de principios del siglo XX, que después de un siglo nos sigue fascinando por su virtuosismo técnico y su atmósfera fantástica. La delicadeza y sensibilidad con la que retrata al personaje de Alicia o a los animales contrasta con el siniestro detalle de otros malvados. Los dibujos en blanco y negro aunque menos espectaculares no dejan de tener encanto y las láminas a color poseen una paleta de colores apagada y sobria característica de la época.

The total edition numbered 1000 copies, with a few additional copies printed on yellow, blue, and green paper. 'Chantecler. is allegorical, symbolical, and satirical. The characters, the day-to-day creatures of farmyard and forest, are animated by the same sentiments of egotism, jealousy, and emulation as human beings. They are sometimes tender, frequently fickle, often ruthless. Chantecler the cock imagines that it is his beautiful song that makes the sun rise. His pride has a fall, but he masters his disillusionment and returns with a good heart to the more humble role of wakening his farmyard' (Oxford companion to French literature).

        S.S. Olympic Stationary, 3 folded sheets, forming 6 leaves, with notes, in English with a few Hebrew words interspersed, by a scholar, relating to a book by Dr. Zunz, DIE SYNAGOGALE POESIE DES MITTELALTERS

      [Undated] - SS Olympic stationary. The SS Olympic, also known as the RMS Olympic, which is the sister ships the SS Titanic and the SS Britannic. The Olympic was the only ship of the three to have a long life. Launched on October 20th, 1910, before its larger but ill fated sister ship, the SS Titanic, the SS Olympic was ready for duty on 31 May 1911, the same day the SS Titanic was launched. The maiden trip for the Olympic was to New York where she arrived in a record speed of 5 days,16 hours and 42 minutes. The fifth journey across the Atlantic was not successful in that she collided with the HMS Hawke, causing considerable damage to both ships. In her repairs a Titanic's propeller shaft was used to repair the Olympic. When the Titanic was on her way to New York and hit the iceberg the Olympic was 500 miles away heading back to England. She was not able to get to the Titanic's help in time. During WWI the Olympic was used as a troop ship and had many adventures including the ramming and sinking of U-203, a German submarine. Following the war while in dry dock they discovered a dent below her hull's waterline, caused by a torpedo that had failed to detonate. After the war she was returned to service and by 1935 she was sold for scrap. Many of the ships beautiful fittings were sold and are displayed as sample displays of the Titanic's interior. This piece of stationary survived those glorious days of service to the White Star Lines. The Olympic was the first of her class of ocean liners built for the White Star Line. The captain of the Olympic at the time of the collision with the HMS Hawke was Edward Smith, who famously died at the helm of the Titanic less than a year later.

Original glazed boards (some unobtrusive repairs), with a full color chromolithograph illustration on the front cover, red cloth spine, teal and white patterned end papers. A scarce transforming / pull-tab picture book consisting of poems illustrated in b/w with pull-down slotted chromolithographed illustration on facing pages. Each chromolithograph transforms when the tab is pulled, changing the animals in each cage: lion for cubs, monkeys for kangaroo, toucan for flamingos and so on. CONTENTS (text Illustrations and chromolithographs): 1. Five small children and lady (teacher?) in Edwardian dress; Lion / lion cubs opposite. 2. Five children looking towards cage; Tiger / tiger cubs. 3. Six children in front of a cage; Brown bear / polar bear. 4. Text illustration as per 1; Two monkeys with banana / kangaroo. 5.

Ernest Nister (1841-1906), publisher and printer of movable books for children, was born in Darmstadt (Germany). He flourished as a publisher in London where he developed techniques for making pop-up books, "dissolving picture" books, "magic windows," and transforming pull-tab books, as here. The distribution of Nister titles was not limited to European markets; the New York firm of E.P. Dutton worked in conjunction with Nister to promote and sell the publisher's titles in the United States. Nister has recently received considerable interest from academics and collectors alike, for which see University of Virginia's "Pop Goes the Page" (online) and University of North Texas "Pop-Up and Movable Books: A Tour through their History, Ernest Nister" (online).
