      1910. Original photograph albums. The five cloth photograph albums measure approx. 9 ¾" x 11 ¼", and each contains ten leaves of heavy stock, with four spaces for photos on both sides. The photographs measure approx. 3" x 4" and are mounted neatly behind the window mounts. Pasted to the inside front cover of each album is a detailed typed/mimeographed description of each photo, most noting the date when taken. These descriptions were prepared by Mr. May's wife, Emma Amelia (nee Burgess), who also added her manuscript additions to most sheets, written in a tiny hand. The edges of several of the album covers show mottling, but the photographs are in very good to fine condition, apart from some mild age-toning on some of them. May represented the photographic-paper trade for a British company in Siam. His regular business circuit from 1910-1921 includes time in Siam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore, with most of these photographs taken in Bangkok, Batavia, Penang, Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur and Medan, plus additional views made at less well-known locations, e.g. Soerbaia, Semarang, Garoet, etc. The photos of Siam in particular illustrate an important period in that country's history. They begin during the final days of the rule of the modernizing, Western-educated (by Anna Leonowens) King Chulalongkorn and continue into the rule of his son Rama VI. Although in 1917 Siam declared war on Germany and Austro-Hungary and played a token role in WWI-enough to earn a place at the Versailles Peace Conference--this continued to be a time of modernization and relative prosperity in the country. The photographs, for example, depict the "new railway" from Bangkok to Penang as well as the new railway station (Album 4) and the bustling Wat Poh Fair which took place in Bangkok April 3-7, 1919 (which occupies 43 photos in Album 4). Other noteworthy events include the elaborate cremation of King Chulalongkorn (March 16-19, 1911) and a few shots of Bangkok's first aviation show (both in Album 1).~~ In addition to the striking vistas of beaches, jungles, waterways, and natural wonders including volcanoes, the albums also contain many scenes of street- and canal-life as well as views of prominent buildings of the day (e.g., temples in various countries, the Mosque at Medan-Deli in Sumatra, Bangkok's Old Russian Legation building and its tennis courts, the "mess hall" at Hong Kong Bank Lane, etc. There are also many interior and exterior shots of the hotels in the countries where Percy & Emma regularly stayed, including the Raffles Hotel (Penang), Oriental Hotel (Bangkok), Empire Hotel (Kuala Lumpur), Grand Hotel (Ipoh), the Grand Hotel at Djocjakarta, and the Hotel der Nederlanden (Batavia). A number of shots include other Europeans as well as the Mays, most of them apparently fellow-employees. The final album has scenes on the ocean-voyage home (Colombo, the Suez Canal, etc.), and scenes "back home" in England, including London and views in rural Devon. ~~ Album #1: 10 leaves (20 pages) 80 photographs + small envelope containing 8 more, labeled on verso. September, 1910-November, 1911. Includes stays in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, Port Swettenham-now Port Klang--, Ipoh, Penang), Sept-Oct. 1910 and July-August, 1911; Siam (Bangkok), October 1910-June, 1911; Singapore, June 1911; and Indonesia (Medan in Sumatra, Batavia in Java), August-Sept., 1911; also a few in envelope, taken near Bangkok, Nov.-Dec., 1911. The most noteworthy events recorded in this album are the cremation of King Chulalongkorn of Siam at "Premaine Ground" in Bangkok (March 16-19, 1911), including 5 crowd scenes and 6 shots "taken after the Cremation and before start of demolition of building erected for the Cremation"; a celebration in Singapore of the Coronation of King George V of England (June, 1911); the celebration of Queen Wilhelmina (of the Netherlands)'s birthday (Aug., 1911) in Medan, Sumatra; and 2 photos of "Bangkok's first aviation show" at the Sports Club in Bangkok (Jan., 1911), featuring a "Farman Biplane". There are also several candids of the photographer's friends and fellow-employees, photographed "at the mess" at Hong Kong Bank Lane, Bangkok, including "Mr. and Mrs. King, Lonsdale, Davy, Hertzka, Pagden and self". Also here are several Bangkok street scenes of buildings and canals with boatmen, taken "outside" the same "mess" hall. In addition to views taken from shipboard and jungle scenes, there are interior and exterior photos of hotels where the Mays stayed, including the Raffles Hotel (Penang), Empire Hotel (Kuala Lumpur), Grand Hotel (Ipoh), Hotel Beau Sejour in Lembang; the Hotel Villa Dolce and its grounds in Garoet, Hotel Beau Sejour in Lembang, the Oranje Hotel at Soerbaia, and the Hotel der Nederlanden (Batavia). ~~ Album #2: 74 photographs, Spring 1914 to early 1915. Includes stays in Siam (Bangkok), spring 1914 and "end 1914-early 1915"; Malaysia (Penang, May-June, 1914, and Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh, Sept. 1914); Indonesia (Batavia, Buitenzorg, Soekaboemi, Soerkarta, Boroboedoer, and Tosari with Tengger Village (June-July, 1914); and Singapore (Oct. 1914). Included are views of: Penang's St. George Church, Ayer Etam Temple, Post Office, Council Chamber, and Javasche Bank; the Chenderiang Falls in Kuala Lumpur, including shots with a group of European men and women; Batavia's Hotel des Indes and Dutch Protestant Church; Botanical Garden scenes at Buitenzorg, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore; views of Javanese towns with rice field, temple, mountains, buildings, horse-drawn carriage, volcanoes including Bromo, Monegal Pass, etc., many shots including one or two European women in white hats and men in topees; and 2 views of Ipoh's "white 'marble' roads" complete with auto, and one of the Grand Hotel there. Bangkok photographs include several taken at the Old Russian Legation, including the tennis courts and other buildings, the canals and local boatmen, and various European men and women posed in Bangkok. ~~ Album #3: 79 photographs, August-September 1916. Opens with 6 photos of Bangkok's Wat Chen Temple; then all but one of the remaining photos depict scenes in Indonesia, most taken in various parts of Java. These include 6 photos of the Hotel der Nederlanden in Batavia; the Hotel Beau Sejour in Lembang; the Hotel Villa Dolce and its grounds in Garoet; plus 8 views of the volcano Papandajan and 12 more of Lake Bagendet and the "new South coast road" near that town; 3 views of Soekaboemi; shots at Djocjakarta including the Grand Hotel, three street scenes with horse-drawn carriages and eight shots of the "water castle"; three scenes including a smoking volcano at Soerakarta and the Oranje Hotel at Soerbaia; views, including European woman on horseback, at Tosari, with two shots of a visit to the nearby village of Ngadiwono; then several street/building scenes in Semarang, as well as views taken on the town's outskirts, and jungle and water views in Cheribor. The last pages include 6 shots of the Mosque at Medan-Deli, Sumatra. The final photo from 1917 is a scene "at the foot of the Taipeng Hills, Perak (Malaysia). ~~ Album #4. 79 photographs, December,1918 to August, 1919. The majority of photographs in this album were taken in Bangkok, including a picture of the British Red Cross Fair at Saranom Gardens (December 1918). There are fully 43 photos of the Wat Poh Fair, April 3-7, 1919. Resembling a street fair, the pictures show booths and tents, many Siamese customers and passersby of both sexes, children, and even a few soldiers. There are also several views of Bangkok temples or wats, a klong with an inhabited houseboat, and interior and exterior views of the Oriental Hotel. By May, the photographer and his wife are on the move, and there are several views taken during their journey "over the new railway Bangkok-Penang", including a shot of the new railway station and several views of Ipoh's "marble cliffs" and the city's Railway Hotel. The album ends with views of Lembang, Java, and the nearby volcano Tangkoeban Prahoe, as well as several interior and exterior shots of the Hotel der Nederlanden in Batavia (Sept. 1919). ~~ Album #5. 74 photos in toto. August, 1920-July, 1921. This album opens with the arrival in Bangkok of "H.M.S. Phra Ruang (scout cruiser)" in August, 1920. The remaining Bangkok views are interiors of the Oriental Hotel, with several of parrots and parakeets perched on hotel furniture. From January, 1921 through March, the photographs record the journey via Southern railway to Penang, including views of flooded areas passed on the train, the Tung Song Rest House, and views of Medan and Penang, mostly taken from shipboard "on way through, homeward bound." Next come scenes taken on the April, 1921, ocean voyage to England, including views of Colombo (beaches, street scene, ships at sea), Suez (including several during passage through the Suez Canal) and a street scene at Port Said, the Straits of Messina, a street scene at Marseilles, and the Rock of Gibraltar viewed from the ship.

The album concludes with outdoor views "round Lynton and Lynmouth," two villages on the north coast of Devon, now within Exmoor National Park, and Clovelly, a scenic village also in Devon.

Wolf-Ferrari asks his correspondent to send him some scores as soon as possible so he can study them "lovingly" rather than superficially."I had already sent my Venice address to Via dei Greci, Rome, and from there they had already answered me, telling me that they would have sent the scores just as soon as [Arturo] Toscanini had released them.The scores are really a lot. They should get to me right away so I can prepare with ease. I will need at least twenty days so that the examination would not be too superficial, but rather, loving."Creased at folds; short tear to central fold; last blank page slightly stained at lower right. Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari (1876-1948) was an Italian composer best known for his operas Cenerentola, Le donne curiose, and I Gioielli della Madonna, among others.The present letter may concern the score of I Gioielli, which premiered at the Berlin Kurfürstenoper on December 23, 1911.

        Autograph Letter regarding the publication of Brigg Fair

      1910. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Scarce ALS, one page on a 3.5 x 5.5 postcard, January 8, 1910. Letter to music critic Edwin Evans. In part: "Briggfair is being published by Leuckart and no doubt on application they will let you have a proof copy for analysis. It might also be wise for you to consult Mr. Beecham's programmes." Addressed on the reverse in Delius's hand. In fine condition, with light handling wear. The conductor Thomas Beecham played a major part in bringing Delius to prominence by performing his work.  During the last 12 years of his life Delius's wife Jelka wrote almost all his letters.  Autograph material, especially of musical content, from the hand of the influential English composer are very rare."Brigg Fair" is an English folk song, best known in a choral arrangement by Percy Grainger. In 1907, Delius heard the setting and was impressed by both the tune and the arrangement, and, with Grainger's permission, used the song as the basis of an orchestral work.  First performed in 1908 and subtitled 'An English Rhapsody,' Delius's work treats the tune to a series of variations, encompassing lilting rhythmic dances, funereal marches, gently pastoral moments and full grand statements. One of Delius's most original and distinctive works, a peaceful introduction and several Romantic linking passages give the work its rhapsodic character.

      1910. 170 x 110 mm. Ganzfigürliche Darstellung im Rollenkostüm von einem russischen Photographen. Auf der Bildseite signiert und einem Herrn Ferdinand Graf gewidmet. - Der aus Rom gebürtige Baritonsänger war u. a. am Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, am Teatro Pedro II. in Rio de Janeiro, am Teatro São José in São Paulo und an der Covent Garden Opera in London zu hören. "1892 wirkte er bei der Uraufführung der Oper ‚I Rantzau' von Pietro Mascagni mit. Jules Massenet schrieb für Battistini die Titelpartie seiner Oper ‚Werther' für Bariton um. Auch Giuseppe Verdi schätzte den Sänger sehr. Es kam jedoch zu einer Mißstimmung zwischen den beiden Künstlern, als Battistini die Hauptrolle in Verdis ‚Falstaff' ablehnte. Richard Wagner erklärte Battistinis Interpretation der Arie ‚O du mein holder Abendstern' aus der Oper ‚Tannhäuser' zu seiner Lieblingsversion. Battistini gilt als eine der herausragenden Sängerpersönlichkeiten seiner Zeit" (Wikipedia).

      London, Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd., No. 970, circa 1910.. FIRST EDITION circa 1910, 6 panel panorama of thick board pages hinged with red cloth, colour printed both sides, a separate story on each side, both illustrated by Wain, brief caption below each picture, all dressed kittens, page size 235 x 180 mm, 9¼ x 7 inches. LACKING COVER BOARD PAGE WITH TITLES (i.e. 5 of 6 panels only). The images for Three Little Kittens were re-used in a painting book issued about the same time by Tuck with the No. 4063. The story on the reverse is a cats version of 5 Struwwelpeter stories: Fidgety Philip on the floor under the table cloth; the three kittens inked by Agrippa cat for mocking the Blackamoor; John who never looked where he was going and almost drowned in a stream; a version of the Huntsman where a hare with a rifle shoots at 2 cats; finally, a kitten disobeys his mother and sucks his thumb but with no nasty consequences. A Louis Wain cat version of Struwwelpeter was published by Tuck circa 1905 entitled Fidgety Phil and Other Tales, in the Little Pets series, with 16 pages including covers and with verses by Norman Gale. Hinges slightly worn with some small splits, a few very minor marks to some pages and some hinges, small closed tear to surface paper at edge of 1 image (we have found our mittens), neatly repaired with no loss, barely visible. A good defective copy of a rare book (lacking 1 board page). Neither the Three Little Kitten Painting Book nor our Panorama, nor Fidgety Phil are listed in the bibliography in the reissue of the Dale book on Wain. The painting book is not uncommon but we could not find a record of our panorama. Fidgety Phil is listed in Baumgartner Volume 1, page 24, No.29 and 1 copy is recorded in Liverpool University Library and 1 in Toronto Public Library but not in the Osborne catalogue.

        Decorative leathers applied to modern furniture.

      Amsterdam, J. Brandt & Zoon, ca. 1910-1916. Folio (37.0 x 30.0 cm.). With 36 original photographs of furniture leather crafting such as, chairs, clocks and smoking stands, each with a handwritten caption, on 34 leaves. Original full leather, with gilt title and vignette on the front board. Marbled endpapers.= J. Brandt & Zoon was an Amsterdam based bookbinder and paper wholesaler, active from 1742 until the mid-20th century, when it merged with P. Proost & Zoon, another Amsterdam firm, founded in 1842. The present volume is apparently a display of their craftsmanship, as it is meticulously bound and gilted. It contains 33 framed photographs of contemporary decorative furniture, all in a style transitional between Jugendstil, or Art Nouveau, and Art Deco. Many items show the characteristic ornamentation of the "Amsterdamse School", a mainly architectonical art movement characterized by the profuse use of ornaments, chiefly inspired by nature and by Indonesian art. Buildings and interiors in typical Amsterdamse School style were made between 1912 and 1925. What we see here are early examples, in which the use of fluent, curved lines - more typical for Art Nouveau, are still present. A few boards in the rear removed. Firm stamp on front flyleaf verso. A unique item in a very good state.
