        Family photograph album

      n.p., n.d. 1910 - The 14 photographs in this album were undoubtedly produced by a professional photographer, using a large format camera. The pictures are well composed, sharply focused, and unusual in their scale. They picture a family in leisure-time activities such as hunting, gathering leaves, and observing caged rabbits. Especially noteworthy is their time at a lake cabin, and visiting Twin Cities sites. The cabin is a fine Victorian piece of gingerbread, with a wrap-around porch ideal for napping and reading. The wife/mother is seen holding a copy of the periodical American Motherhood, which was published 1903-1919, making it possible to date these images around 1910. The family includes twin boys, one of whom is seen, in the same picture, reading a copy of the children's magazine Buster Brown. What appears to be a stuffed squirrel appears in three of the images. The album contains 14 beautifully toned photographs, including one in which the oldest child asists a workman possibly making maple syrup. Seven loose prints accompany the album (one duplicate). Among these are three pictures made at Fort Snelling and Minnehaha Falls, suggesting that the family either lived in the Twin Cities, or visited there. While the identity of the photographer is unknown, there is a clue to the heritage of the subjects. Laid into the album is a newspaper clipping about one Marvin Hughitt (1837-1928), upon his retirement from the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad in 1925. It is possible that the family in these photographs were descendants of Mr. Hughitt, with the mother or father a likely grandchild. This is an unusually nice album of family photographs.

        ARCHIVE OF FIVE (5) PHOTOGRAPH ALBUMS WITH 438 VERNACULAR PHOTOS BY PERCY WILLIAM MAY: SIAM, MALAYSIA, INDONESIA & SINGAPORE, 1910-1921

      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).

      - 3 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Venice, July 29, 1910, Tolentini 3536. On onionskin paper with blindstamp of a quill on paper to lower edges. In Italian (with translation). 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.
