        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 is b&w and measures 16" wide by 10" tall. Light wear and soiling to corners and light soiling to back of photo. 1/8" size chip near right edge. 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.

        Copper half-relief of Horatio Nelson

      1910. NELSON, Horatio. Copper half-relief bust portrait of Horatio Nelson. Society for Nautical Research, circa 1910. Copper half-relief measuring 11-1/2 by 16 inches; framed in birdseye maple, entire piece measures 14-1/2 by 18-1/2 inches. $25,000.Striking copper half-relief bust portrait of Horatio Nelson in military uniform, fashioned out of copper hull sheathing from the flagship where he fell, the H.M.S. Victory, captioned ""Nelson"" in the relief, handsomely framed in simple birdseye maple.This beautiful copper half-relief bust portrait of Horatio Nelson was fashioned out of the copper hull sheathing of the flagship where he fell in battle, the H.M.S. Victory. The solid, finely hammered and chased artwork shows tool marks and gilding under an even, well-aged patina, evidence of the quality of the craftsmanship. Following the battle of Trafalgar, the H.M.S. Victory was badly damaged and could not return to port under the power of its own sail. After delivering Nelson's body to London, the Victory was repaired and remained in active service until 1812, when she was moored at Portsmouth. The ship then served as a training vessel for some time. However, by the turn of the 20th century, she had deteriorated so badly that, in 1910, a group of enthusiasts established the Society for Nautical Research to help fund restoration of the ship. The essential parts of the project were not completed until well after the close of the Second World War. The very last repairs were not completed until 2005, just in time for the bicentennial of Trafalgar. Today, the Victory is the oldest commissioned warship in the world and attracts over 350,000 visitors per year as a museum ship. To help fund its restoration efforts, the Society for Nautical Research took unusable parts, such as nails and cooper sheathing, and melted them down to be refashioned as souvenirs. This handsome piece was among the most elaborate of these. From the military collection of Rodney Hilton Brown, founder of the War Museum, New York. Featured in an April 2015 article in The Mariner's Mirror, ""Benjamin T. Hill's HMS Victory Collection,"" by Rodney Hilton Brown.Tiny repaired split at top of relief, virtually invisible, that occurred upon manufacture. Fine condition.

Victory, to help fund restoration efforts to preserve the historic vessel early in the 20th century.The Battle of Trafalgar was a spectacular success for the British navy over the combined fleets of the French and Spanish navies, but the victory was tainted by the death of Admiral Lord Nelson, shot during the engagement by a French musketeer.

Victory had been badly damaged in the fight and was towed to Gibraltar by HMS Neptune for repairs, before carrying Nelson's body to England where, after lying in state at Greenwich, he was buried in St. Paul's Cathedral on January 9, 1806. In 1910, the Society for Nautical Research was created to try and preserve the Victory for future generations, but the Admiralty was unable to help, having become embroiled in an escalating arms race; thus by the time Frank H. Mason published The Book of British Ships in 1911, Victory's condition was described as ""nothing short of an insult."" By 1921, she was in a very poor state, and the ""Save the Victory"" campaign was started, with shipping magnate Sir James Caird becoming a major contributor. (Restoration was finally completed well after the close of the Second World War; today, it is the oldest commissioned warship in the world and attracts over 350,000 visitors annually as a museum ship.) This pipe rack is from a generations-old British military and naval family collection; featured in an April 2015 article in The Mariner's Mirror, ""Benjamin T. Hill's HMS Victory Collection,"" by Rodney Hilton Brown.Typical age-wear with some minor oxidation to metal rings. An exceptional commemorative piece.

        Marcus Aurelius to Himself

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1910. The Thoughts of Marcus Aurelius Handsomely Bound ca. 1910 by Ramage of London [RAMAGE, binders]. Marcus Aurelius to Himself. In English by Gerald H. Rendall… Head Master of Charterhouse. London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1910. Golden Treasury Series. Small octavo (5 7/8 x 3 7/8 inches; 150 x 98 mm.). xlii, 167, [1, imprint] pp. Frontispiece with tissue guard. Some light foxing affecting front and rear blank leaves only. Handsomely bound by Ramage of London ca. 1910 (Stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in). Full brown morocco, covers with double-gilt rules surrounding four large and elaborate gilt corner designs, spine with five raised bands, elaborately tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board edges and wide turn-ins, blue mottled paper liners and endleaves, all edges gilt. A fine example of the work of this exceptional London binder. Born in London in 1836, John Ramage served an apprenticeship with John Wright, then went to Paris, where he was able to work with the distinguished Marcellin Lortic (1822-1892), who opened his shop on the Rue St. Honoré in 1840. In 1860 Ramage purchased the binding business of Alexander Banks, Jr., in Edinburgh, then returned three years later to London, where he was in business at various locations into the 20th century. Though the range designs is broad, Ramage bindings are celebrated for their remarkably delicate, careful, and elaborate gilt work. Marcus Aurelius. Latin: Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus; [26 April 121 - 17 March 180 AD) was Roman Emperor from 161 to 180. He ruled with Lucius Verus as co-emperor from 161 until Verus' death in 169. Marcus Aurelius was the last of the so-called Five Good Emperors. He was a practitioner of Stoicism, and his untitled writing, commonly known as the Meditations, is the most significant source of the modern understanding of ancient Stoic philosophy. During his reign, the Empire defeated a revitalized Parthian Empire in the East: Aurelius' general Avidius Cassius sacked the capital Ctesiphon in 164. In central Europe, Aurelius fought the Marcomanni, Quadi, & Sarmatians with success during the Marcomannic Wars, although the threat of the Germanic tribes began to represent a troubling reality for the Empire. A revolt in the East led by Avidius Cassius failed to gain momentum and was suppressed immediately. Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, written in Greek while on campaign between 170 and 180, are still revered as a literary monument to a philosophy of service and duty, describing how to find and preserve equanimity in the midst of conflict by following nature as a source of guidance and inspiration.

      1910. Signed. CHURCHILL, Winston. Printed document signed. London: July 11, 1910. Black-bordered printed document, one page, 8 by 12-1/2 inches. Framed with portrait of Churchill, entire piece measures 20 by 20 inches. $4500.Printed document, a 1910 letter of appreciation signed by Churchill, sent on behalf of King George V to Welsh Nonconformists for their resolution on the death of King Edward VII.The document, finished in hand and signed by Churchill as Secretary of State for the Home Office, July 11, 1910 and sent to R. Davies, Esq., Tuhwntirbwlch, Portmadoc [Wales], reads in full, “I am commanded by The King to convey to you hereby His MajestyÂ’s Thanks for the Loyal and Dutiful Resolution of the nonconformists of Portmadoc on the occasion of the lamented death of His late Majesty King Edward the Seventh. I am to say that the expression of sympathy with Queen Alexandra has been laid before Her Majesty, who desires me to communicate to you Her Thanks.” On May 6, 1910, after a reign of less than 10 years, King Edward VII died and was succeeded by his son as King George V. The Nonconformists of Portmadoc who had sent this resolution were Christians who refused to conform to the Church of England. Under magnification, there appears to be some black shading under ChurchillÂ’s brown ink signature; this may have been caused by splaying of the ink or, when Churchill signed this letter, the ink was very light and he signed his name a second time, going over his first signature. Three horizontal folds, none through ChurchillÂ’s signature. Handsomely framed and in fine condition.

        Edison. His Life and Inventions

      1910. First Edition . Signed. (EDISON, Thomas Alva) DYER, Frank Lewis and MARTIN, Thomas Commerford. Edison. His Life and Inventions. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1910. Two volumes. Octavo, original gilt-stamped blue cloth, top edges gilt, original glassine (Volume II only). Housed together in a custom clamshell box. $8800.First edition of the first ""complete, authentic and authorized"" biography of Edison, boldly signed by him, inscribed by the author to one of the founders of Biograph Studios, one of the most important early movie studios: ""To my friend H.N. Marvin with compliments. Frank L. Dyer. Orange, N.J. June 15, 1911.""Primarily authored by Frank Lewis Dyer, who headed Edison's legal and corporate affairs for over a decade, with Electrical World editor Thomas Martin, this two-volume, generously illustrated work was ""long regarded as the standard, authorized biography… [and] is a rich source of biographical details, particularly on Edison's early career"" (Burt, The Biography Book, 125). Subsequent biographers would inevitably ""begin with a large debt to the authorized biography written in 1910 (and enlarged in1929)… Filled with good stories and extensive quotations from Edison himself, it tells Edison's life largely thorough his most well-known inventions… Dyer and Martin provide a good technical discussion of these inventions and furnish insight into Edison's inventive and business methods"" (Hessenbuch, 192). Additionally, as contemporary reviewers noted, Edison ""throws light on important phases of the economic history of our time… Edison has been almost through the whole of his career an organizer, manager, investor"" (Taussig, Quarterly Journal of Economics). With Edison's stamped signature on publisher's statement of authorization, Volume I. Illustrated with 26 full-page photogravures, including two frontispiece portraits. Volume II with a lengthy appendix detailing Edison's United States patents granted from 1868-1909 and his more than 1000 foreign patents, as well as informative diagrams and descriptions of his work on the telephone, incandescent lamp, phonograph, motion picture inventions and more. Without rare dust jackets or rare publisher's cardboard slipcase; with rare printed glassine for Volume II only. This copy is inscribed to Henry Norton Marvin, one of the founders of Biograph Studios, one of the early pioneers of the film industry. Marvin began working with W.K.L. Dickson—a former employee of Edison's—in the 1890s, founding a company that would go on to become The Biograph Company. At its height, director D.W. Griffith was making a steady stream of films for Biograph starring the likes of Mary Pickford, Lionel Barrymore, Lillian and Dorothy Gish and Mack Sennett (who would also direct for the company). Starting in 1908 Biograph became part of the Motion Picture Patents Company, an Edison-led consortium of studios that was finally dissolved in 1915 due to antitrust violations. At the time of this inscription, Marvin was vice-president and general manager of the company.Interiors generally fine, cloth of Volume I rubbed, gilt bright. An extremely good copy with a excellent film association.

        Fear

      London: Stanley Paul & Co.. London, Stanley Paul & Co., 1910. First Edition. First Impression. A wonderful association copy, presented by the author to her first son, Paul Bland. The inscription reads thus: "To Paul Bland, to \ whom this book \ was dedicated and \ is dedicated, this \ copy on his birthday, \ from E. Nesbit, his \ mother, who wrote \ the book \ June 28, 1910." Nesbit had a unfortunate marriage to Hubert Bland, though three children were borne of it. Paul (1880-1940) was the first. This would've been for his 30th birthday; he committed suicide another thirty years later, after a depression, thought in part to come from the fractured homelife and his father. Nesbit's most famous work, The Railway Children, was dedicated to Paul. The book itself is in decent shape with a tear to the cloth at the head of the spine and pulling all along, until separating a little at the bottom, the spine tips are bumped and rubbed. Internally, very good with a few signs of ageing and some spots of foxing. Overall a presentable copy with a wonderful and important association. The book itself is a collection of weird tales, with a good dose of the supernatural. [5694, Hyraxia Books]. . Very Good. Hardback. 1st Edition. 1910.
