        Sensitive Plant, The

      1910. Percy Byshhe Shelley's The Sensitive PlantHandsomely Bound by Riviére & Son[RIVIÉRE & SON, binders]. SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe. The Sensitive Plant? London: Robt. Rivière & Son, 1910. Square sixteenmo (5 1/16 x 3 15/16 inches; 129 x 100 mm.). 46, [2, blank] pp. Title-page and initial letters printed in red and black. Handsomely bound ca. 1910 by Riviére & Son, stamp-signed in gilt on lower turn-in. Full dark blue crushed levant morocco, covers bordered in gilt surrounding an ornate floral design stamped in gilt, each with twelve inlaid red morocco flowers, spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board edges and turn-ins, cream paper liners and end-leaves, top edge gilt. Neat ink inscription on front free end-paper and a small gold bookplate. A fine example.Percy Bysshe Shelley, (1792-1822). In The Sensitive Plant, Shelley has separated his poem into three separate parts and a conclusion. In the first part of the poem, Shelley portrays a wondrous, beautiful garden, full of life and luminosity. Shelley uses several realistic depictions of flowers and plants to provide the reader with a detailed insight into the garden. These stanzas are full of details which helps one picture the garden that Shelley so beautifully illustrates through his words. As part one continues, Shelley introduces a contradiction into the garden, The Sensitive Plant. Unlike the other flowers, this floweret is not vivid in color or shape, and lacks the beautiful odor flowers are characterized for. Percy Shelley goes on to say in The Sensitive Plant?"For the Sensitive Plant has no bright flower;Radiance and odour are not its dower;It loves, even like Love, its deep heart is full,It desires what it has not, the Beautiful!

        The American Woods, exhibited by actual specimens and with copious explanatory text

      by the author, Lowville, N.Y. 1910 - (9 x 6 inches). Illustrations. 387 samples of wood, each wafer-thin transverse, radial and tangential sections illustrating 129 species, window-mounted in 129 card mounts. (Occasional natural cracking and warping to a few samples). Text in original wrappers, samples in card mounts unbound as issued, each text volume and accompanying samples within original brown cloth cover in matching original cloth slipcase, with metal catch and bosses to covers. Each contained in a modern brown cloth box with morocco label. Mixed edition. A representative sample of a rare and remarkable work on the woods of America. Volumes I-IV cover all the trees of New York and adjacent states, vol.V is on the trees of Florida. A contemporary reviewer called it `one of the most marvelous and instructive books ever made ' (Art Education). This remarkable work was the lifetime achievement of Romeyn B. Hough, who devoted himself to the study of American trees, and who is best known for his Handbook of Trees of the Northern States and Canada , long a standard reference work in American dendrology. In this work, Hough sought to describe the woods found in America, with a detailed description in an accompanying pamphlet, and with thin cross-sections of actual woods mounted and labeled in accompanying stiff cardboard mounts. These provide a unique record of American wood types, arranged geographically. Generally each species is shown with wood cut on traverse section, radial section, and tangential section. The samples are so thin as to be easily translucent. The age of these specimens gives them tremendous importance from an ecological standpoint, as well as their great interest to students of American furniture and woodcrafts. The trees available to Hough at the time make such an endeavor impossible to contemplate today. Parts I-IV cover New York and adjacent states, part V covers Florida, parts VI-X describe the Pacific Slope, parts XI-XII cover the Atlantic states, and part XIII southern Florida. Part XIV contained a continuation of the work on the trees of Florida with text by Marjorie Hough, using specimens and notes prepared by her father before his death in 1924. Hough explained the unique nature of the work thus: it is `illustrated by actual specimens, and being in this way an exhibition of nature itself it possesses a peculiar and great interest never found in a press-printed book. The specimens are.about 2 x 5 in. in size, and sufficiently thin to admit of examination in transmitted light.Looked at in reflected light they appear as in the board or log. These specimens are mounted in durable frame-like Bristol-board pages, with black waterproofed surfaces.and each bears printed in gilt-bronze the technical name of the species and its English, German, French and Spanish names. The pages are separable.and are accompanied with a full text.giving information as to the uses and physical properties of the woods, and distributions, habits of growth, botanical characters, habitats, medicinal properties, etc,., of the trees. The woods used for the specimens are personally collected by the author? and are sectioned and prepared by a process of his own device'. Complete sets of this work are very rare. The volumes were priced at five dollars each, a high price reflecting the work involved in assembling them. Since subscribers came and went over the 25-year period of publication and many only bought the volume or volumes on the areas that interested them. The rarity of complete sets can be judged from the fact that Stafleu and Cowan record the work as being complete in 6 volumes. Cf. BM (NH) II,p.880 (pts.1-8 only); cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 II, p.341. Volume I-V only (of 14), octavo [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Principia Mathematica.

      Cambridge: at the University Press,, 1910. Large octavo. Original dark blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, cream endpapers, edges sprinkled red. Minor rubbing to extremities, a couple of tiny marks to front pastedown, internally fresh. A superb copy. First edition of one of the great rarities of modern science. In this work, Whitehead and Russell attempted to construct "the whole body of mathematical doctrine by logical deduction from the basis of a small number of primitive ideas and a small number of primitive principles of logical inference" (DSB, XII, p. 14). The belief that mathematics can be derived from logic is not only one of the principal philosophical theories of the foundation of mathematics, it has also provided some of the most important results in the formal analysis of mathematical concepts (cf. Frege, Peano). This belief found its fullest expression in Principia Mathematica. Sets of the first edition have become very rare today. Vol. I was printed in 750 copies and, due to the disappointing sales, the publishers reduced the printings of Vols. II and III to 500 copies each, so that only 500 complete sets in first edition are possible. From the library of Dolf Mootham (1933-2015), with his ownership inscription pencilled to the front free endpaper. Mootham was chief financial officer of merchant bank Hill Samuel in 1977, and became the finance director of Trustee Savings Bank in 1988.

        MEMORIAS ÍNTIMAS DE SHERLOCK HOLMES (74 NÚMEROS: COLECCIÓN COMPLETA)

      F. Granada y C.ª, Editores, Barcelona - Colección completa de 74 números encuadernados en dos tomos en holandesa piel de época. Cada uno de los 74 cuadernos, un episodio completo. La encuadernación está un tanto desprendida en lomo, lo que desplaza algunos cuadernos hacia el exterior pero la obra está completa y el estado general es más que correcto. Texto a doble columna con ilustraciones en negro. Conserva todas sus portadas originales, en color, las mismas que inspiraron a Jean Ray la creación de las historias para su célebre personaje, Harry Dickson. Se trata de la primera serie publicada en España de esta colección, hacia 1910, a partir de los Sherlock Holmes apócrifos encargados por el editor alemán de Verlaghaus für Volksliteratur. Sería la única serie en la que se incluyó el nombre del mítico personaje salido de la pluma de Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ya que, en la siguiente serie (la serie azul), una demanda interpuesta por los propietarios de los derechos, obligó a la editorial alemana a prescindir del nombre de Sherlock Holmes, adoptando la cabecera el título de "Memorias íntimas del Rey de los Detectives". Al parecer, la dictadura franquista, a partir de 1939, se ocupó de destruir cuantos ejemplares de esta colección caían en sus manos, por lo que, en la actualidad, resultan tan escasos como populares lo fueron en su época. Oportunidad única de hacerse con esta rarísima colección completa. Size: 32 Pp. x n.º (74), 29 x 21 Cm, 6 Kg. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The South Pole: An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram," 1910-1912

      John Murray - Two volumes. First English edition,; 8vo; Volume I portrait frontispiece, two maps, 84 mostly photographic illustrations; Volume II three maps and two folding charts and plans, 53 mostly photographic illustrations; original maroon cloth, upper covers with red border enclosing image of Norwegian flag and lettered in gilt, spines with image of Norwegian flag and lettered in gilt, top edges gilt. The South Pole was published three months before Scott's death. As Kossow states it is to the publishers credit that they produced this set of real quality, incorporating the Norwegian flag, "despite realising that British disappointment at being beaten to the Pole would ensure that it was not a publishing success in the UK." A fine set some browning to endpapers, some light spotting to the page edges, in Volume II, there is a short repaired tear to the folding map, slight wear to head and foot of spines, extremities very lightly rubbed. A lovely set not often found in this condition.

        [Scrapbook]: Culver Military Academy

      Culver, Indiana. 1910 - 1913. Oblong folio. Measuring 12" x 16". String-tied maroon cloth over paper boards with "Culver" stamped on the front board. Contains various ephemera, 80 pictorial postcards, and 53 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2.5" and 7.5" x 9.5", some with captions. Front board has detached but is present, slight foxing, and edgewear thus good only with near fine photographs.A scrapbook kept by David Burpee between 1910 and 1913 while he attended Culver Military Academy in Culver, Indiana. Burpee was the son of seedsman, Washington Atlee Burpee who headed W. Atlee Burpee & Co. out of Philadelphia. The company was the first seed company to succeed with a mail order system. After Washington's death in 1915 David took over the company as a seed merchant and horticulturist dedicating his time to the science behind cultivating seeds and creating new ways to assure the seeds would travel well. He was also interested in "plant breeding" and spent his life, according to a 1975 interview with People Magazine, "creating new and better kinds of flowers, plants and vegetables." Before he headed the Burpee Company, David attended Culver Military Academy and achieved officer status by the time of his graduation. The school was founded by Henry Culver in 1894 "for the purpose of thoroughly preparing young men for the best colleges, scientific schools and businesses of America."David's scrapbook extensively details his three years at the academy with photos of himself and cadets in uniform, in their barracks, and participating in athletics. A large photo shows the Culver Academy's track team as well as some action shots of Burpee during a race. He also saved programs and dance cards from plays and balls that were held at the school. The album contains an opening section of seven autograph pages with names, cities, and messages or "happy thoughts" from fellow cadets such as Richard M. Armstrong from Grand Rapids who wrote, "all the world loves a lover." Burpee includes pamphlets: "Introduction to New Cadets" and "Regulations for the Government of Cadets." The album also includes numerous photos of the cadets in military formations in full uniforms. They participated in nature hikes, drills, and Calvary practice. Burpee dedicated a large section of the book to pictorial postcards of the campus, Indiana, and various school trips, such as one to Washington, DC. The academy held special programs and dinners for holidays, pamphlets are seen here with dinner menus for Thanksgiving as well as special performances. There is also a large broadside for the Culver Mid-Winter Circus which included a Hindoo Juggler.Burpee left the academy in 1913 and went on to study at Cornell University until his father's death in 1915. He was given the nickname, "the Dean of U.S. horticulturists," and was constantly experimenting with new lines of plants. The seed catalogs were distributed twice a year and boasted over "1,400 different seeds, bulbs, shrubs, flowers, vegetables and trees." As of 1975 his personal goal was to create an all-white marigold which had been something he had been trying to create since 1953. According to the The National Cyclopaedia of American Biography: Permanent series, Volume 16, Burpee "achieved remarkable success in the conduct of the company's affairs displaying unusual executive ability wisdom and business acumen. He is not only a close student of horticulture and agriculture but is also a true devotee of the science."An interesting look at the school days of an American entrepreneur. .

        An original watercolour painting: "These make our girls their sluttery rue, By pinching them both black and blue",

      A beautifully painted, and delightfully detailed, original watercolour by Frank Watkins on white artist's card mounted on brown board, signed, with brown painted border and cream mount, image size 150 x 200mm, depicting a young serving girl in period dress washing dishes while beseiged by a group of frenzied winged imps, with neat caption in pencil beneath, presumably in the artist's hand, in fine condition. Frank Watkins (fl. 1910) is best known for his illustrations for "The Man From The Moon" by Philip Carmichael, published by Grant Richards, in 1909, which is a scarce and sought-after children's fantasy of the Edwardian period. We have so far been unable to trace the book in which this illustration appears. We have an accompanying handwritten note from the family in ink, on board: "This original watercolour is by Frank Watkins who married Maud Willson (A[unty]. Mo) elder sister (by 18 yrs & b[orn]. in Dublin) of Boo & my Mama Eileen Mary Willson ... .. He had apparently asked Maud to marry him "every year" for many years - & she was often the 'model' for his fairies/princesses etc. in his wonderful children's books - of which this painting is a characteristic & fine example, J.B.", with further information provided about the family line and the artist's residence in Bedford Park, Chiswick, where he acted in the Amateur Dramatic Society. The caption quote to this watercolour is from the text of Nymphidia: The Court of Fairy (1627) by the Elizabethan poet Michael Drayton; a verse which has been referred to as "the finest of all seventeenth-century fantasies."

        KENILWORTH, ILLINOIS [Cover Title]. Original Photo Album]

      np [Kenilworth?], nd [ca. 1910]. Good. Oblong 4to. album with pebbled flexible leather boards and gilt titles, 7.25” x 10.75” approx. Seventeen photographs mounted recto only, all 4.5”x 7.5” approx. Remaining leaves blank. Bookplate of George F. Steele to pastedown. Album good only. Hinges cracked, edges worn. Board bowed. Contents however sound and overall near fine. A beautiful photographic study of the earliest planned community in the U.S. Includes a picture of founder Joseph Sears (above right), as well as those of several houses and buildings. Most images though of natural surroundings, an interesting facet as Kenilworth was also one of the first communities to incorporate landscape architecture into its development. While the album’s exact purpose is unclear (though we presume promotional or perhaps survey), a fine assemblage by an accomplished photographer that exhibits a strong Pictorialist influence.

        Also sprach Zarathustra

      Leipzig: Alfred Kroner Verlag, 1910. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Nietzsche's most famous work (first published in 1899) and a poetical masterpiece of 19th c literary/political ideas. It had a profound influence on late 19th c. European philosophy. Here in a masterpiece of book printing by Kroner who had split with father's firm to publish Nietzsche widely when others said no; vellum 24mo, AEG, beautiful gift book for any German academic or student, date a guess but Kroner left Stuttgart for Leipzig in 1907, German text within ruled margins, 488pps, 78-81,000, concluding with comments from 1905 from evil sister Elizabeth Forster-Nietzsche, ads in rear. Usual soiling, darkening associated with vellum, gilt spine and front cover titles. Book famously describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor. Nietzsche argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religious pieties or meek submission, but in an all-powerful life force. .

        [ALBUM OF PHOTOGRAPHS DEPICTING A JOURNEY BY RAIL FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO THE GRAND CANYON]

      [Various places in California and Arizona], 1910. Twenty-two leaves containing 171 silver gelatin photographs, each 3 x 4 inches. Oblong quarto. Original black pebbled leather, cover gilt. Front hinge cracked, spine loosening, edges worn. Images clean, with varying degrees of sharpness. Some light silver mirroring to some images. Very good. A vernacular photograph album documenting a journey from San Francisco to the Grand Canyon by way of Santa Barbara and Death Valley. The first five images show the Grand Canyon before resuming chronological sequence. Images of San Francisco include several shots of the Sing Chong Chinese Bazaar, as well as a nice photo of Golden Gate Park and its windmills. The next series shows a looming mountain peak and railroad tracks - likely en route to Santa Barbara, the next distinctive location in the album. There is a nice photo of the train rounding a bend in the tracks - obviously taken while hanging out the window of a rear car. Scenes along the route include what may be a logging camp and rural and small town scenes along the Pacific Coast that echo a drive down today's Coastal Highway. Numerous images are then devoted to Santa Barbara, particularly the mission there. One photo shows a friar standing along a colonnade, staring pensively into the distance. Several images that follow show carts pulled by horses or oxen. One wagon, piled high with lumber, is pulled by four teams of oxen while a Mexican-American man trudges beside it. There are shots of the big redwood trees and an image of oil derricks. The group stopped next at Mission San Gabriel, photographing its famous bells. The next stop is at an estate - possibly that of Henry E. Huntington, which was designed in 1911 and built over the next few years. There are two images of what appears to be the Barstow train station. On the same page is a photograph of a wagon that says "From Death Valley" on its side, and an intriguing image of several Mexican- Americans - several men stand next to a structure on the far side of the train tracks, while three women in the foreground, one carrying a basket on her head, walk toward the men. The series closes with a handful of images of Hopi houses in Arizona, followed by photographs of the Grand Canyon. In all, a charming and interesting vernacular album of Southern California.
