        The Theory of Business Enterprise.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1910. Octavo (200 x 135 mm). Original red ribbed cloth, blind rule border to covers, spine lettered gilt, single frame to front board in blind, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Extremities slightly rubbed and bumped, a few small scuff marks to boards. An excellent copy. Inscribed by Veblen on the front free endpaper: "B. J. Olsson Nordfeldt. T. B. Veblen". Nordfeldt (1878?1955) was a Swedish-American artist who painted two portraits of Veblen, both now lost. Nordfeldt studied art in the U.S. and Europe. Between 1903 and 1907 he lived in Chicago, depicting Chicago landmarks and scenes, and it was most likely during this period that he also painted Veblen's likeness (Tilman, Thorstein Veblen, John Dewey, C. Wright Mills and the Generic Ends of Life, p.142) The second book by the author of The Theory of the Leisure Class, this volume discusses the evolution of large business trusts and the economic impact of technological change and is "as near as he ever came to writing a conventional academic book" (Blaug).

        ç™½éº—水ポスター [Hakureisui posutā] [Hakureisui Poster]....

      [Osaka?]. (circa1910). Colour lithograph poster 54.5 x 38cm. Two closed tears from margin, the largest running 3.5cm into the image, tiny chip and one small hole. Very good. This early 20th century Japanese advertising poster for the face lotion, Hakureisui (meaning literally white beautiful water) features the face of the most popular pin-up girl in Japan in the 1910s - the geisha later known as Teruha 照葉 . On the poster alongside Teruha is a cartoonesque image of an African (African American?) in a suit, his face double the size of Teruha's, each pointing to the skin of the other - a frightening example of racial stereotyping! Teruha was born as Takaoka Tatsuko 高岡辰子 in Nara in 1896. Sold by her alcoholic father at the age of 12 into slavery, her fortune changed two years later when she began training as a geisha in Osaka, taking the name of Chiyoha 千代葉. Due to her stunning and unusual looks she quickly became very well known. Over her career she had a number of liasons but probably the best known is her relationship with a playboy and high-end fashion dealer in 1911, as during their break-up she cut off her small finger to prove her love. Because of this scandal, she could not stay in Osaka and moved to Shinbashi, in Tokyo where she became a geisha named Teruha 照葉. In Shinbashi she was also a very popular and it was here that she became known as the "Nine-finger Geisha". Such was her fame that postcards with her image were published in large quantities and are still collected to this day.Teruha married twice but in both cases the marriage ended badly. Her first marriage to a stock broker brought her to the United States. While in New York she enrolled in a school to learn English where she had an affair with a woman. On her return to Japan the scandal of her affair in America became known and the marriage broke up. She returned to New York, later living also in London and Paris where it is thought she might have had a child. In the 1920s Teruha also appeared as a lead character in a romantic film. In 1935 she became a Buddhist nun at Gio-ji Temple in Kyoto, where it appears she lived happily until her death in 1994. Takegaki, the company which published this advertising poster for their lotion was located in Osaka. It appears the company is no longer in business. The caption on the poster at the lower right translates as: "For a face like this,[use] Hakureisui which removes pimples and makes [the face] white." The Japanese characters found in the frame on the lower left shows names of other medicines produced by this company. As Teruha appears to have her fingers in this image and the company was located in Osaka, it seems highly likely that the poster was produced before Teruha's move to Tokyo in 1911.

        The Discovery of The Dead.

      London: A.C. Fifield, 1910. First edition. 8vo. Near fine in publisher's dark blue cloth titled and decorated in gilt and white to spine and front board. Minor edgewear and scuffing to extremities. Strong, bright and sharp. A very handsome copy indeed. Internally clean, minor spotting to prelims. An extremely scarce piece of supernatural pseudo-scientific weirdness dealing with the emerging science of Necrology and the discoverer of the revolutionary Necrolite. As you do. Upward, now almost entirely forgotten, was a poet, lawyer, part time politician and occasional author. His main claims to fame are that he coined the word "Scientology" in 1901 (that went well), and committed suicide in 1926 apparently as a direct result of George Bernard Shaw winning the Nobel Prize, an honour which Upward considered due to himself. A very rare object.

Ehrlich had the idea of a "magic bullet" drug -- one that could seek out and attack invading organisms but not affect the host tissue -- after performing experiments with dyes in which bacteria had absorbed a stain while the surrounding micro-organism had not. Ehrlich and his assistant Hata performed 605 experiments with arsenical compounds on the spirochaeta pallida, the organism causing syphilis, which Fritz Schaudinn had identified in 1905, before they succeeded using a compound that they named "Salvarsan 606." "This was the first chapter in the history of chemotherapy, later stages being marked by the discovery of prontosil and the brilliantly successful sulpha drugs, including the well-known 'M. & B. 693' which was to save the life of Winston Churchill at a critical point in the Second World War" (PMM).

        Singapore and Hong Kong Photographic Albums

      (circa1910). 4 non uniform photograph albums from a private collection. 13 x 15.5cm; 21.8 x 15.9cm; 26.4 x 16.3cm; 28.5 x 34.5cm. Each in cloth covered boards. Bindings worn with a little loss particularly at corners and some light marking. The cloth on the largest album is heavily flecked. Some browning on card leaves particularly in the largest album. These four albums of snapshots taken by an English resident of Singapore in the late 19th and early 20th century offer a fascinating snapshot of Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau over 100 years ago. Most of the photographs show Singapore and Johor however a visit to Hong Kong and Macau is also included. The photographs appear to have been the work of J. Forbes (his signature appears in one album) and are each captioned by the same hand in English.The smallest of the four albums, titled "Album" on its upper cover, includes a handwritten title on the front paste down "Pictures of Johore Singapore 1/1/10" and is signed "J. Forbes". This delightful little album includes (13 x 15.5cm) features 14 black and white photos (7 x 9.7cm) mostly of Johore (Johor) including views of the coast, the landing stage, a "famous gambling house" in what looks like a residential bungalow, views of the interior - prayer hall, pulpit and "sacred water", and exterior of the Sultan Abu Bakar mosque (described as an Indian mosque in the caption) with its Victorian clock tower-inspired minarets, a large building described intriguingly as "The abode of the Sultan's wifes (one of which is an English girl)". There are also views of a hotel in Johore, Indians sitting in open train carts which are described as "cattle trucks" on their way to Singapore, and a Chinese school in Singapore showing a group of young people in military uniform gathered outside on the playing field, with the school buildings in the distance. Bound in green cloth with an art deco style floral pictorial cover the album titled "Happy Times" (21.8 x 15.9cm) consists of 47 black and white photos (approximately 10 x 7cm/7 x 10cm). Forty two of these photographs are of Singapore, though there is one captioned "A dip in the briny - Hong Kong" and another "A view of the Bund - Macao" and three photographs of other Europeans captioned only with their names. Several show views of "The Gardens", which appear to be the Botanic Gardens in Singapore, including one of "a queer tree" with tangled roots and there are many photos featuring local people - Malay women with their children, a Malay couple, a Malay girl at the village well, a group of Chinese women, Indians with their bullock carts, rickshaw pullers, and a group of children captioned "We are a merry little band". A pretty young woman in a sarong pictured near a pounding implement is titled, rather tellingly, "Oh why can't you change your skin". Various vehicles depicted show that the main modes of transport were the rickshaw, the horse and buggy, and the electric tram for conveying people, and the bullock cart for transporting goods. Other shots show members of the colonial population in various places - several having now changed or disappeared. Examples are the Sea View Hotel at Katong Beach, then on the seashore, the Singapore Cricket Club established in 1952 and still standing in the colonial heart of the city, the building occupied by S. Moutrie & Co Ltd which was a popular music and piano warehouse at the time, a large white building on the seashore captioned "Passive Panjang" which could be a play on the name "Pasir Panjang" situated on the west coast of the island, a view from River Valley Road - a popular residential area for wealthy foreigners, Chinese merchants and Straits Chinese families, and the local railway station then situated in Tank Road and built to more efficiently ferry goods to the docks at nearby Tanjong Pagar. "Sunny Memories", the title on the upper cover of one of the albums, is a collection of 79 photos from Singapore from Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau (and even Margate) placed in no particular order. 3 photographs and surrounding card have been removed. Views of land and seascapes, interesting shots of events such as a coffin on its way to the cemetery handcarried on poles, a young Chinese boy pausing in his game of stick and hoop, views taken in Hong Kong after the typhoon in 1909 showing damaged boats and a one of a Chinese man holding a flying fox said to have had a wingspan of 5 feet. Some of the terms used and the captions depict the bygone era which they represent, for example a Chinese temple called here a "joss house", a photo captioned "A Chinese celestial" and a photo of some young boys captioned "Straits Born Chinks". Several photos feature Europeans in various places or posing for photos for example a young man and his wife as newly-weds standing (in separate photos) with their many gifts, a portrait of a man dressed in traditional costume and captioned "King of the Cannibal Islands", group shots of people such as on a picnic in Hong Kong or "on the shore at Passir Panjang" and several feature three children - Sidney, Bertie and Queenie - singly or together. One photo is titled "Sea View Hotel Passir Panjang Singapore" - in fact the Sea View Hotel was located in Tanjong Katong on the east of the island whereas Pasir Panjang is in the west. Other places featured include the house at 124 River Valley Road, a local Singapore railway station, several joss houses and the gardens in both Singapore and Hong Kong. Six photos have been removed, damaging the surrounding card and there are 12 empty places where it appears photographs were not inserted. The largest album in this collection contains 119 photos of Hong Kong, Canton, Singapore and Johor. Several are duplicates of those found in the smaller albums and many are uncaptioned. The first 15 pages are various views of Hong Kong and Kowloon and feature places including the Catholic Church Canton, the harbour master's residence at Whampoa, the view from Kennedy Road at the Peak, HMS Monmouth in the harbour, a duck farm in Kowloon, and boats and junks. There are also photos of people such as coolies loading and unloading goods onto boats, people transporting water and ice in carts, a laundry man, men hauling coal and people swimming. The majority of the rest of the album features photos of Singapore and Johor, including Malay, Chinese and European style houses and buildings, the mosque in Johor, local people and Europeans. Nine photos and possibly a few more (it is difficult to tell at the rear of the label) have been removed and six leaves remained unfilled. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 151293).

        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]. 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....

        Principia mathematica.

      Cambridge: at the University Press, 1910-12-13. First edition of all three volumes of this monumental work. Complete sets of the first edition which, like ours, are not ex-library, are very rare on the market - only two such copies have sold at auction in the past 25 years. Probably named after Isaac Newton's great work, "Principia Mathematica was Whitehead and Russell's detailed account of their 'logicist' thesis that mathematics could be derived solely from logical concepts and by logical methods...[it] has had an influence, direct and indirect, of near Newtonian proportions upon the spheres of its chief influence: mathematical logic, set theory, the foundations of mathematics, linguistic analysis and analytical philosophy" (Grattan-Guinness, p. 89). "Whether they know it or not, all modern logicians are the heirs of Whitehead and Russell" (Palgrave, p. 20). "After the failure of Frege's Grundgesetze, due to Russell's paradox, it was the Principia Mathematica of Whitehead and Russell which first successfully developed mathematics within a logical framework" (ibid., p. 21). ?Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 16; The Collection of the Garden Ltd. 219; Norman 1868. "Gottlob Frege had attempted to demonstrate logicism about arithmetic (though not geometry) in the period from 1879, when his first book, Begriffsschrift, was published, to 1903, when the second volume of his Grundgesetze der Arithmetik appeared. However, in 1902, as that second volume was in press, Russell had written to him informing him of the contradiction that he had discovered in Frege's system. Frege had attempted to respond to the contradiction - now known as Russell's paradox - in a hastily written appendix, but he soon realized that his response was inadequate and abandoned his logicist project. It was left to Russell to find a solution to the paradox and to reconstruct the logicist program accordingly. The final result was Russell's ramified theory of types and Principia Mathematica itself, but this theory and the logicist reconstruction in which it is embedded took a decade to develop" (ibid., p. viii). "Principia Mathematica had its origins in Russell's discovery of the work of Peano at the International Congress of Philosophy held in Paris in the summer of 1900, which Peano and his supporters attended in force. To that time Russell had been working for several years attempting to develop a satisfactory philosophy of mathematics. Despite some philosophical successes ... a satisfactory outcome had always eluded him. At the conference, however, he very quickly realized that the Peano school had a set of techniques of which he could make use, and on his return from the conference he immediately set about applying them. As a result, he quickly rewrote The Principles of Mathematics, which he had started in 1899, finishing the new version by the end of the year. It was published, after some delay and substantial revisions of Part I, in 1903, billed as the first of two volumes. It was intended as a philosophical introduction to, and defence of, the logicist program that all mathematical concepts could be defined in terms of logic and that all mathematical theorems could be derived from purely logical axioms. It was to be followed by a second volume, done in Peano's notation, in which the logicist program would actually be carried out by providing the requisite definitions and proofs. At about the same time that Russell was finishing The Principles of Mathematics, he began the collaboration with his former teacher, Whitehead, that produced, many years later, Principia Mathematica. "Whitehead in 1898 had published A Treatise on Universal Algebra, another first volume, in which a variety of symbolic systems were interpreted on a general, abstract conception of space. Again much detailed formal work was held over for the second volume. By September 1902 the two second volumes had merged, both authors having decided to unite in producing a joint second volume to each of their projects. This in turn grew until it constituted the three volumes of Principia Mathematica. The reason for the long delay in completing [Principia Mathematica] ... was the difficulty in dealing with a paradox that Russell had discovered around May 1901 in the set-theoretic basis of the logicist system. The natural initial supposition of that system was that a class would correspond to each propositional function of the system, intuitively the class of terms which satisfied that propositional function. This being the case, there would be a class corresponding to the propositional function 'x is not a member of itself', and this class would be a member of itself if and only if it was not a member of itself. The problem of restricting the underlying logic so that this result could not arise while leaving it strong enough to support the mathematical superstructure that Russell and Whitehead wished to build on it absorbed many years of intense labour" (ibid., pp. xvi-xvii). "Principia Mathematica proved to be remarkably influential in at least three ways. First, it popularized modern mathematical logic to an extent undreamt of by its authors. By using a notation superior to that used by Frege, Whitehead and Russell managed to convey the remarkable expressive power of modern predicate logic in a way that previous writers had been unable to achieve. Second, by exhibiting so clearly the deductive power of the new logic, Whitehead and Russell were able to show how powerful the idea of a modern formal system could be, thus opening up new work in what soon was to be called metalogic. Third, Principia Mathematica re-affirmed clear and interesting connections between logicism and two of the main branches of traditional philosophy, namely metaphysics and epistemology, thereby initiating new and interesting work in both of these areas. "As a result, not only did Principia introduce a wide range of philosophically rich notions (including propositional function, logical construction, and type theory), it also set the stage for the discovery of crucial metatheoretic results (including those of Kurt Gödel, Alonzo Church, Alan Turing and others). Just as importantly, it initiated a tradition of common technical work in fields as diverse as philosophy, mathematics, linguistics, economics and computer science" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). "Although they divided up the initial responsibility for the various parts of the project, they checked each other's work and in the end produced a truly collaborative text. 'Whitehead and I make alternate recensions of the various parts of our book,' Russell explained to P. E. B. Jourdain in a letter of March 1906, 'each correcting the last recension made by the other.' There were relatively few periods of extensive personal contact between them; indeed, during the period from the autumn of 1906 to the autumn of 1909, when most of Principia Mathematica was actually written, Whitehead lived in Cambridge and Russell in Oxford" (Grattan-Guinness, p. 90). The final manuscript, of more than 4000 folios, was delivered to the printers on 19 October, 1909 (only a few leaves of the original manuscript are known to have survived). Publication was delayed by financial problems. In the end, Cambridge University Press contributed £300 to the cost of publication, a further £200 was obtained from the Royal Society, and the authors contributed £50 each (the latter contributions were refunded by the Press some 40 years later - but without interest!). The first volume of Principia Mathematica was published in December 1910 in an edition of 750 copies, priced 25 shillings; volumes II and III had a print run of only 500 copies, and were priced at 30 shillings and 21 shillings, respectively. A fourth volume, dealing with the applications to geometry, was planned and much of it written, by Whitehead alone, but never published and the manuscript was destroyed shortly after his death in 1947. Complimentary copies were sent by the authors to the library of Trinity College, Cambridge (of which they both were or had been Fellows), R. G. Hawtrey (who checked over some of the text while it had been in preparation), G. G. Berry (a clerk at the Bodleian Library with remarkable abilities in mathematical logic), and Jourdain (this was the copy in the library of Haskell F. Norman). The Press sent copies to G. Peano, G. Frege, L. Couturat, J. Royce, W. E. Johnson (who had examined the manuscript for the Press), E. W. Hobson and A. R. Forsyth. Review copies were also issued, including one to G. H. Hardy. The book was not a best seller. In his review of the book in the Times Literary Supplement, Hardy wrote: "Perhaps twenty or thirty people in England may be expected to read this book." Erwin Schrödinger went further: he said that he didn't believe that even Whitehead and Russell themselves had read all of it. Nevertheless, by the early 1920s the work was going out of print and a second edition, with three new appendices and a long new introduction, all written by Russell himself, was published in 1925-27. After 1927 Russell withdrew from logic. "After the massive achievement of Principia Mathematica, nothing remained but a job of cleaning up the formal foundations, a task that was essentially completed by the early 1930s, as a result of the work of Ramsey, Gödel and Tarski" (Palgrave, p. 14).

        Boote vor der Norwegischen Küste" originale Gouache auf Malkarton ca.80x80cm; rechts unten signiert; um 1900 [Dekorativ hinter Glas in der massiven Holzleiste gerahmt (97,5x96,5cm).]

      - "Boats off the Norwegian coast" original gouache on cardboard approx.80x80cm; bottom right signed; around 1910 [Framed behind glass; dimension of the solid wooden frame 97,5x96,5cm.] „Die Welt, wie Michael Zeno Diemer sie sah, gibt es nicht mehr. Allein die Gletscher sowie Sarajevo und Mostar in Bosnien-Herzegowina haben sich gewaltig verändert, seit sie der Maler Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts mit seinem Pinsel festhielt. Für Dr. Constanze Werner, Leiterin des Oberammergau Museums und des Geigenbaumuseums Mittenwald, „ist er ein Chronist seiner Zeit". Auf seinen unzähligen Reisen und auch in seiner Heimat habe der Künstler, der 1881 als 14-Jähriger mit seiner Familie von München nach Oberammergau gezogen war, ständig seinen Skizzenblock dabei gehabt. „Er hat die ganze Zeit aquarelliert, was er gesehen hat", sagt Werner. Einige seiner Berg- und Seebilder hängen derzeit im Werdenfels Museum in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Neben der Natur – unter anderem dokumentierte Diemer auch etliche Erstbesteigungen – war es die Technik, etwa Graf Zeppelins Luftfahrten, die ihn begeisterten. Berühmt war der sechsfache Familienvater, der mit Hermine von Hillern, der Tochter der Geierwally-Autorin, verheiratet war, zudem für seine Riesenpanoramen. „Er war am Moskau-Panorama beteiligt, das neben dem von der ,Schlacht am Bergisel‘ in Innsbruck das einzige ist, das noch erhalten ist", erzählt Werner. Sie ist wie ihr Garmisch-Partenkirchner Kollege, Josef Kümmerle, fasziniert von Diemer: „In Zeiten, in denen die Expressionisten aktiv waren, hat er eher konservativ gemalt. Die Moderne hat er stattdessen durch seine Motive umgesetzt." [Merkur-Online vom 8 April 2015] [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        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.

        AVENTURES D ALICE AU PAYS DES MERVEILLES. ( Ilustración: ) Illustrées par Arthur Rackham. 1ª edición francesa, texto en francés

      1910 - Paris. Imprimerie The Mayflower Press, Plymouth, Angleterre. William Brendon & Son, Ltd. Librairie Hachette. s.a. (ca. 1910). In 8º mayor, 6h incluso frontis, 167pp y vuelta. Numerosas reproducciones en negro de los originales de Rackham al texto y trece láminas aparte a color sobre papel estucado, cada una con su papel protector, capitulares historiadas y portada con bella orla dibujada. 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. Arthur Rackham, 1867-1939. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, Lewis Carroll, 1832-1898.Descuento aplicado por nuextro xx Aniversario [Attributes: Hard Cover]
