        Notes en vue de la préparation de: Constantinople Moderne. Ses Monuments, ses Curiosités, ses habitans.

      Istanbul, 1899 to ca. 1910. - 4to. French ms. on paper. 88 ff. (including some 30 blanks) and ca. 60 inlaid leaves of additional notes. Contemp. cloth with handwritten label on upper cover: "Notes personnelles à M. Sellie (secrètes)". A manuscript for an unrealized publication about the city of Istanbul, written in well legible script throughout by León Sellié, director of the "Compagnie des Eaux de Constantinople". The author began by compiling a rich array of facts on numerous subjects, such as the French embassy, Turkish administration, Ottoman banks, dogs, the climate, dancing, servants, translators, pregnant women, Ferikoy district, the government, French charitable organisations, the press, the police, religion, theatre and toilets ("ambassade de France, administration turque, banques ottomanes, chiens, climat, danses, domestiques, drogmans, femmes enceintes, Ferikeny, gouvernement, oeuvres charitables françaises, presse, police, religion, théâtre, toilettes"). These alphabetically arranged catchwords are increasingly interspersed with additions and insertions, many dated and often in the manner of a diary, including notes of converstaions, personal opinions, and anecdotes. Among other episodes, Sellié mentions the Lorando-Tubini affair that led to the Ottoman-French conflict and the occupation of Mitylene, or the Baghdad railway, which he considers a grave political mistake ("une lourde faute politique"). - Slightly browned, as commensurate with age; well-preserved altogether. A trove of information on politics, society, culture, and history of the Ottoman Empire at the turn of the century. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mountainous landscape with Middle Eastern and classical Roman ruins, 6 shepherds with their flocks, several figures riding dromedaries and one riding a donkey, (date?) palms, lakes, etc.

      [Palestine?, ca. 1910?]. - An enormous panoramic view drawn in coloured gouaches on a single, continuous roll of unwatermarked wove paper (70 x 583 cm), the drawing running to the edges of the paper. Rolled and stored in a cardboard tube. A panoramic view of what appears to be a fantasy Middle Eastern landscape, with spectacular mountains in the background, a body of water near each end, and a wide variety of buildings and ruins, some clearly classical Roman and others Middle Eastern. The combination of classical Roman architecture with dromedaries and other Middle Eastern features places it very likely in Palestine, but we have not been able to identify specific buildings. The most distinctive ruin, a round Roman temple with five columns on the viewer's side (perhaps a third of the circle), an entablature above them and a vertical base below them, looks more like the Temple of the Vesta at Tivoli than like any known temple in the Middle East (the columns are not rendered in sufficient detail to determine their order, but they are almost certainly not Ionic and are probably Corinthian). There are also classical Roman aqueducts. The six shepherds with their flocks all wear broad-brimmed hats and have staffs, and two are blowing long, slightly curved horns. Several additional figures with broad-brimmed hats and staffs might be pilgrims, one together with what is presumably his wife. - With a 33 cm tear into the left edge, slightly affecting a mountain and the top of a tree, a few insignificant and much smaller tears and with pin holes about 1 cm from the edges from mounting on a wall, but otherwise in very good condition and with the colours fresh and bright. A spectacular panoramic view of the Middle East, including many classical Roman ruins.

        Autograph postcard signed

      (approximately 30 words) n.p., n.d.[c.1910-20] - On a plain linen-textured card: "My dear Mr Masters [?] If you ever indulge in that most unmasculine diversion: the afternoon concert, allow me to recommend Miss Heyman as the real thing in pianists. Ever yours Ezra Pound." Katherine Ruth ("Kitty") Heyman was a major influence on Pound in the earliest years of his writing career - he was by some accounts in love with her - and the dedicatee of "A Quinzaine for this Yule". She was his effective patroness for several years and her interest in occult matters appears to have rubbed off on him (even if there was no other rubbing). Excellent.

        A Call: The Tale of Two Passions.

      London: Chatto and Windus,, 1910. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt, blind-stamped decoration to front cover. Title page in red and black, 32 pp. advertisements. Spine darkened, ends and edges slightly worn, front hinge cracked but holding. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, presentation copy, lengthily inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "'I have evolved what has been the guiding principle of my life: do what you want & take what you get for it.' 'And God in His mercy pardon the ills we do,' the priest said. 'I had forgotten that,' Grimshaw said. p. 216. A. P. Marwood from Ford Madox Hueffer 9th Feb MCMX". Arthur Marwood (1868–1916), the recipient, was a highly significant figure in Ford's life: "after Madox Brown, Conrad, and James, he was to become the most important man in Ford's life and in his writing" (Saunders, p. 209). Ford met Marwood in 1905, when the two became neighbours — Marwood had moved to Winchelsea, seeking a milder climate for his tuberculosis. The inscription in this copy may be an apology of sorts for a quarrel between the two men the previous year, ostensibly over a claim by Elsie, Ford's wife, that Marwood had made overtures to her, but also over building tensions in the friendship triangle between Ford, Marwood, and Conrad. Ford's lover, Violet Hunt, noted that Marwood "was too clever to look for … the capacity for petty jealousies implicit in the psychology of the great névroses … [he], in his noble simplicity, was caught between two deeply sophisticated personalities", while Jessie, Conrad's wife, noted that "'F.M.H. had a cottage quite close to us in Aldington … the intimacy was not now so great, and there was, I feel sure, some little jealousy on account of Joseph Conrad's great affection for that other neighbour, Arthur Marwood'" (Moser, p. 103). When Marwood died from tuberculosis in 1916, his death impressed Ford "more profoundly than any since those of his father and grandfather" (Saunders vol. II, p. 5). The character of Christopher Tietjens, the protagonist of Ford's war tetralogy (1924–1928), was partly a tribute to Marwood, "from whom he took Tietjens's grand Yorkshire background, mathematical skills and habit of 'tabulating from memory the errors in the Encyclopaedia Britannica'" (LRB, Vol. 34, No. 19). From the collection of Thomas Moser, Professor of English at Stanford University, though unmarked as such; he published a psychological biography of Ford Madox Ford in 1980.

        The Wonderland Postage-Stamp Case, complete with slipcase, Eight or Nine Wise-Words About Letter-Writing, all twelve unused stamps, and original outside envelope

      Oxford: Emberlin and Son, 1910. Unbound. Very good. The stamp-case, slipcase, Letter-Writing booklet, stamps, and outside envelope are all in exceptionally nice shape. The definitive guide for dating Wonderland Postage-Stamp Cases is not Williams; it is "The Wonderful Case of Alice," by Gerald Davis in Stamp Collecting, June 12, 1980. In his study, Davis identified multiple printing dates for each component of the package. In this example, the Roman numeral date (1889) on the stamp case is not in sans-serif. The "W" in "Wonderland" on the front cover of the slip-case looks like "two Linked 'V's." The advertisements in Letter-Writing are found on pages 36-39 and include "Feeding the Mind;" the rear cover is blank. The second line of the paragraph on the outer envelope ends with the word "Pictorial," and the pricing is for one to four copies, eight copies, 15 copies, and every subsequent 15 copies. The twelve unused postage stamps (from 1/2d through 1s) are all from the King Edward VII series which was issued between 1902-1911. Carroll wrote, "'Necessity is the mother of invention'; and it was the constant worry of never having ready to hand, when one wanted it, a postage stamp of the right value for a letter or parcel, which drove me to invent my 'Wonderland Postage-Stamp Case' which contains twelve pockets, marked for stamps of various values and two coloured Pictorial Surprises from 'Alice in Wonderland.' It is accompanied with a small book Eight or Nine Wise Words About Letter Writing." The surprises that Carroll alluded to are related to the images on the stamp case and slip case. The slip case front cover shows Alice holding the Duchess's screaming baby, and the rear cover shows the Cheshire Cat. When the stamp case is withdrawn, the baby has turned into a pig, and only the cat's grin is visible. The stamp case first went on sale in 1890, and the image of the Duchess's Baby first appeared in 1890 in The Nursery Alice, so it would seem that Carroll intended for the stamp case to help promote his new book. While individual components of this set regularly appear at auctions, complete sets with all components are far less frequently encountered, especially in condition as nice as this grouping. Additionally, sets with all twelve unused, correct postage stamps (which have a Scott Catalogue value over $500) are almost never found. As of 2017, no complete sets with stamps are for sale in the trade, and OCLC shows none in institutional collections. The Rare Book Hub shows only one auction result in the past 88 years for a complete set with stamps, and it was exactly like this example (perhaps it was the same one); it sold for $750 in 2015.

        Liberalism and the Social Problem

      New York: Hodder and Stoughton, 1910. First U.S. edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is the U.S. first edition of Churchill's third book of speeches (following Mr. Brodrick's Army and For Free Trade). There were only 465 copies of this U.S. first edition, making it among the smallest issues of any Churchill first edition. They were printed and bound in England and supplied to the U.S. publisher George Doran in New York. This copy is in very good condition. The dark red cloth binding remains square and tight with unfaded color and bright spine gilt. There is minor wear to extremities, a touch of fraying to the spine ends, and a few trivial scuffs to the rear cover. The contents are bright and clean. Just a few instances of spotting are primarily confined to the otherwise clean untrimmed fore edges, with only two or three trivial intrusions into the blank inner margins of the first and final leaves. The sole previous ownership mark is a small, vintage, silver bookseller sticker (of “The Seven Bookhunters” of New York) affixed to the lower left corner of the rear pastedown. Liberalism and the Social Problem dates from Churchill's period as an ardent reformer and a bright star of the Liberal Party. In 1904, Churchill quit the Conservative Party and joined the Liberals, beginning a dynamic chapter in his political career that saw him champion progressive causes and be branded a traitor to his class. In 1909, when Liberalism and the Social Problem was published, Churchill had just been promoted to a Cabinet position. His 21 speeches in this volume address a broad range of social issues still topical today, with the young Churchill trying to chart a progressive course between reactionary conservatism and radical socialism. Churchill would remain a member of the Liberal Party until their ruinous electoral defeat in the 1922 General Election. Churchill rejoined the Conservatives in 1924. This U.S. edition is far more scarce than its British counterpart, but like the British first edition proved to have a fragile binding susceptible to wear, toning, and dulling. This copy is scarce by definition, doubly so in this condition. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A29.2, Woods/ICS A15(ab), Langworth p.93

        Album of Vernacular Photographs of Family Life

      1910 - Black cloth photo album. Oblong. Measuring 10" x 7.25". Album contains 21 affixed sepia toned photographs, along with an additional 15 black and white, sepia, or silver print photos laid in, three negatives of a woman on a typewriter, and the personalized handkerchief of Mary A. Pettit. All photos are between 2.5" x 2" and 5.5" x 3.5" and are very good or better with slight edgewear and some creasing. Album has worn corners and rubbing.A prosaic album displaying images of home life, probably from the first decade of the 20th Century, and mostly centered on the activities of women. From the back marks (of the photo studios Bailey and Myers-Cope Company) which appear on some of the loose photographs it can be presumed the families lived somewhere in proximity to Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia. Many of the scenes are of women in fancy hats or perambulating with parasols. Also making an appearance are the occasional men and children, most of whom are posing for portraits, one of a man pretending to drive a car. Among the photos are three negatives of a woman on a typewriter with what appears to be an early Dictaphone-like device. A pleasing album of carefree upper middle class people enjoying the decades before World War and financial hardship would upset the bucolic pace of American life.

Max Weiß (* 19. Juli 1874 in Wittenberg; † unbekannt) war ein deutscher Major, Politiker und Landrat sowie Forschungsreisender und Topograf in Zentral- und Ostafrika. Max Weiß schlug zunächst die militärische Laufbahn ein. 1895 wurde er Sekondeleutnant im Infanterie-Regiment „Herzog Karl von Mecklenburg-Strelitz" (6. Ostpreußisches) Nr. 43 der Preußischen Armee in Königsberg und 1899 in das Eisenbahn-Regiment Nr. 1 in Berlin versetzt. Später diente Weiß als Hauptmann im Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 148. 1901 wurde er zum Reichskolonialamt abkommandiert. Er absolvierte ein zweisemestriges Studium an der Universität Göttingen. Von 1902 bis 1905 war er Mitglied der Deutsch-Englischen Grenzexpedition im Norden Deutsch-Ostafrikas. 1906 wurde er zur Landesaufnahme an die trigonometrische Abteilung des Großen Generalstabes kommandiert. 1907/08 nahm er als Topograph an der Deutschen Wissenschaftlichen Zentralafrika-Expedition des Herzogs Adolf Friedrich zu Mecklenburg teil. Nach seiner Rückkehr wurde Weiß 1911 an der Universität Rostock mit der Arbeit „Die geschichtliche Entwicklung der Photogrammetrie und ihre Bedeutung für Geographen und Forschungs-Reisende" als aktiver Oberleutnant zum Dr. phil. promoviert. 1912 nahm er Abschied aus dem Militärdienst und trat in das Reichskolonialamt über. Während des Ersten Weltkrieges war er von 1914 bis 1916 beim Stab der 8. und 9. Armee. 1916/17 nahm er als Bataillonskommandeur im Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 226 an den Kämpfen an der Ost- und Westfront teil. Zuletzt diente er als Major 1917/18 als Abteilungsleiter im Kriegspresseamt. Ab 1918 war Weiß in der Deutschnationalen Volkspartei tätig, zunächst ehrenamtlich, ab Juni 1919 als Landesgeschäftsführer im Landesverband Potsdam, ab 1920 dann als Hauptgeschäftsführer der Partei in Berlin bis zum Jahre 1929. Er leitete auch deren Deutschnationale Schriftenvertriebsstelle. 1933 wurde er zunächst kommissarisch, ab 1934 endgültig Landrat des Kreises Niederbarnim. Er gab u. a. den Verwaltungsbericht „Fünf Jahre Aufbauarbeit im Kreis Niederbarnim 1. Apr. 1933 – 31. März 1938" heraus. Seine Amtszeit endete wohl im November 1944, als sein Nachfolger Oskar Funk kommissarisch berufen wurde. (Wikipedia) Afrika-Expedition 1907/08: Bereits im Jahr 1904 begann Adolf Friedrich mit den Planungen einer umfangreichen wissenschaftlichen Afrikaerkundung. 1907 wurde er Leiter einer teils von ihm finanzierten wissenschaftlichen Forschungsreise in das Gebiet des Zentralafrikanischen Grabens. Im Mai 1907 nahm die Expedition in Mombasa ihren Anfang. Sie führte zum Victoriasee, dann zum Kivusee und in das Kongogebiet. Auch das Gebiet am Uelle war Ziel der Erkundungsreise, die im Juni 1908 erfolgreich beendet werden konnte. Die Expedition brachte insgesamt 1017 Schädel mit nach Deutschland] Zumeist wurden die menschlichen Schädel ohne Zustimmung der Einheimischen oder der Angehörigen der Toten aus den Gräbern entnommen. Die umfangreiche zoologische Ausbeute der Expedition wurde an das Zoologische Museum in Berlin übergeben. Das Botanische Museum zu Berlin erhielt hingegen den Großteil der botanischen Exponate. 1907 begaben sich die Teilnehmer der von Herzog Adolf Friedrich geführten Expedition in das Gebiet der Virun [Attributes: Hard Cover]
