        151 radiographies originales rassemblées dans trois albums

      - 151 épreuves France, c. 1910, , 151 épreuves gélatino-argentiques originales [13 X 18 cm] montées sous passe-partout dans deux albums in-folio et un album oblong in-folio, demi chagrin aubergine, quelques restaurations récentes, Ensemble rarissime de 142 clichés remarquables de grande qualité. Les trois albums présentés ici constituent un exemple unique et exceptionnel de radiographies numérotées réalisées par l'un des grands noms de la radiologie française pendant la Première Guerre mondiale. Ils sont constitués de 68 radiographies du pied, 21 radiographies de la colonne vertébrale et de l'abdomen dont 8 signées à l'encre Ch. Infroit, et 2 sont datées au dos au crayon (6 avril 1910 et 20 juin 1911) et 62 radiographies d'articulations. Charles Infroit (1874-1920) fut attaché au Laboratoire central de radiologie de la Salpêtrière, en 1898. Londe, qui en était le directeur, lui en laissa bientôt la direction, en 1904. Depuis ce moment, par le fait de l'action constante des rayons X, dont nous ne connaissions pas, à l'époque, la nocivité, sa vie ne fut qu'un long martyre. Il subira vingt-deux opérations. Les dernières ont abouti à l'amputation du bras droit et du poignet gauche. L'ensemble des radiographies présentes dans ces albums ont été réalisées autour de 1910 et constituent un précieux témoignage du travail de grande qualité (autant lors de la prise de vue que lors du développement) de l'un des grands martyrs de la Science. Bel état. Canguilhem, Le merveilleux scientifique, Gallimard, 2004, p. 97. Brought to Light : Photography and the Invisible 1840-1900, New Haven, Yale University Press, 2008, n°123.

        Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West. A Lesson in the History of Pioneer Days. Games of the Real Red Men Camel Races

      Riverside Print Co, Milwaukee 1910 - Chromolithographic poster, 55 x 20 inches. Old folds and creases. Two small chips in the edges, one of them touching the edge of the border. Very good.Framed and matted. Not examined out of frame. An attractive, colorful, and action-filled poster for one of the many "Wild West" shows that were formed in the wake of Buffalo Bill Cody's success. The Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West Show was formed around 1910 and produced shows filled with spectacle, as evidenced by this poster. The bottom half of the poster is dominated by a Catlinesque image of "The Real Indian War Dance," as braves in headdresses and breastplates dance around a camp fire. A full moon illuminates the night sky, and a number of teepees are visible in the background. A large illustration in the upper half shows a number of Indians on horseback playing "equestrian foot ball," while others show fancily dressed Anglo women on horseback, as well as a camel race with riders dressed in quasi-Bedouin garb. An attractive poster for a little-remembered Wild West show and a fine example of the "West (and Near East) of the Imagination."

        [Pour la Coupe, 1904 / La Turcat-Méry classée dans l'eliminataire et la de Dietrich, licence Turcat-Mery]

      Paris: [Mabileau & Co.], 1910. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Several creases. Small loss in image. Page toned. Proof copy before titles, colouring partially completed These two cars are identical to the 12.8 litre 4 cylinder De Dietrichs. Turcat-Mery seems to be a name plate associated with passenger autos, yet raced under the name of De Dietrichs in most cases. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring.

      Tübingen: Verlag von J. C. B. Mohr (Paul Siebeck) 1910-1933. 22 Bände (= so vollständig). Gr. 8° (24 x 19 cm). Halbleinenbände der Zeit mit Marmorpapierbezügen und goldgeprägten Rückentiteln, kaschiert mit transparenter selbstklebender Buchbinderfolie. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. 1910 wurde die Zeitschrift \"Logos - Internationale Zeitschrift für Philosophie der Kultur\" gegründet. Georg Simmel war Mitherausgeber. Heinrich Rickert schrieb im ersten Heft den programmatischen Aufsatz \'Vom Begriff der Philosophie\'. Kulturphilosophie war ein aus der Lebensphilosophie und Teilen des Neukantianismus sich herleitender Gegenentwurf zu wissenschaftsorientierten Versuchen, die Krise der Philosophie zu überwinden, wie sie bei Edmund Husserls Phänomenologie, in der Marburger Schule des Neukantianismus oder im Logischen Empirismus des Wiener Kreises zu finden sind. Kulturphilosophie wurde nicht als philosophisches Teilgebiet (nicht als „Bindestrich-Philosophie“) verstanden. Vielmehr sah man in ihr einen neuen Weg, auf die durch Wissenschaft, Industrialisierung und Verstädterung veränderten Strukturen der Gesellschaft philosophisch zu antworten. Die vorliegende Zeitschrift wurde ab 1933 in neuer Folge von der \"Zeitschrift für deutsche Kulturphilosophie\" fortgeführt. - Band 15 leicht abweichend in Orig.-Leinen gebunden. Neuere Bände mit marmorierten Spiegeln und gesprenkelten Schnitten. - Ehemalige Bibliotheksexemplare; komplett eingeschlagen in selbstklebende transparente Buchbinderfolie.

        Encyclopaedia Britannica Complete New Form 11th Edition - 32 Volumes in 16 [Encyclopedia]

      Cambridge University Press, 1910. Later Edition. Large Hardcover. Near Fine/No Jacket. Eleventh edition. Minor wear to corners. 1910 Large Hardcover. Complete set, 32 volumes in 16. The last edition of the Britannica to be written entirely by experts - subsequent editions were significantly simplified. "The Encyclopædia Britannica (English: British Encyclopædia) is a general English-language encyclopaedia published by Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc., a privately held company. Articles are aimed at educated adults, and written by about 100 full-time editors and more than 4,000 expert contributors. It is regarded as the most scholarly of encyclopaedias. The Britannica is the oldest English-language encyclopædia still in print. It was first published between 1768 and 1771 in Edinburgh, Scotland, and grew in popularity and size, its third edition (1797) and supplement (1801) reaching 20 volumes together. Its rising stature helped recruit eminent contributors, and the 9th edition (1875–1889) and the 11th edition (1911) are landmark encyclopaedias for scholarship and literary style. Beginning with the 11th edition, the Britannica shortened and simplified articles to broaden its North American market. In 1933, the Britannica became the first encyclopaedia to adopt "continuous revision", in which the encyclopaedia is continually reprinted and every article updated on a schedule."

        Modern Development of the Dry Fly: The New Dry Fly Patterns, the Manipulation of Dressing them, and Practical Experiences of their Use

      New York: E.P. Dutton, 1910. 2 volumes, quarto. (10 13/16 x inches). Half-titles, titles printed in red and black. Photogravure frontispiece portrait of Edgar Williamson on mounted india paper, 9 chromolithographic plates of fishing flies, 18 colour charts, 16 photogravures of fish and fishing spots on india paper mounted, 22 text illustrations; second volume with 33 actual fishing flies displayed in sunken compartments on nine heavy board mounts. Maroon half morocco gilt to style, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt First American edition, deluxe edition limited to 50 copies signed by the author, this set numbered 18. A total of 125 copies of this deluxe edition were produced: 50 for sale in the United States, and 75 for sale in the British Empire. The deluxe edition of this classic work is preferred over the regular edition for a number of reasons. The first and most obvious is the presence of a second volume including the 33 specimens of actual flies, tied by Hardy Brothers and/or C. Farlow's according to the author's very specific instructions, with careful attention paid to the colour and form of each fly. The second reason is the fact that the text is printed on fine quality Whatman laid paper that is also considerably larger than the paper used in the regular edition. Thirdly the plates, particularly those on india paper, are of a much higher quality that those in the regular edition. This work was aimed quite specifically at those who fished the chalk streams of southern England, but its central message, that the artificial flies should match their living counterparts as closely as possible, was understood to be applicable around the world. This dictum, together with the author's skills in conveying the joys and tribulations of fishing have combined to produce a work that is much in demand today. Litchfield 73.

        Photograph Album including Archibald Hoxsey Flying an Airplane at the 2nd Los Angeles Air Meet in December of 1910

      Seattle and Los Angeles, 1910. Photograph Album. Very Good. The album is approximately 7" x 11" and contains over 100 photographs taken between 1905 and 1911. The photographs range in size from 1" x 1.25" to 6" x 8". The highlight of the album is a series of six photographs taken at the 2nd Los Angeles Air Meet in Dominguez Field in December of 1910. Three of the photos show aircraft and aviators on the ground and three show a Wright Flyer in the air. Two of the Wright Flyer photographs are annotated "Hoxey" (sic) in the lower margin. Archibald Hoxsey was a famous early pilot employed by the Wright brothers who taught him to fly after meeting him at the first Los Angeles Air Races the previous January. Hoxsey is most famous for having taken Teddy Roosevelt on his first flight at Kinloch Field in St. Louis two months earlier. He set a world altitude record of 11,474 feet at the 2nd Los Angeles Air Meet on December 29th and died in crash at the field two days later. The other photos in the album are of friends and family including Cora's husband, Edwin A. Strout a prominent Seattle businessman, and her father, General (retired) Frank Taylor. The photos show the family enjoyiing an upper-middle-class lifestyle including children playing croquet, boating, adults playing tennis, the family's large home, debutantes holding pennants at the first hole of a golf club, General Taylor in uniform and mounted on a horse, General Taylor in civilian clothes carrying golf clubs, a man in beekeeping garb, a girl's tea party, a horse-drawn mail cart, children mounted on horses outside a public stable, adults in an automobile, two women relaxing on the yacht "Olympic," playing at the Santa Barbara beach in 1905, etc. The album also includes a large souvenir photocard of the 1910 Tournament of Roses Chariot Race, etc. The album shows some wear, heaviest at spine ends. The photos are mostly in nice shape; a few have dog-ears, corner wear, or small scuffs. Some have light wrinkles from the glue that was used to attach them to the album pages.

      Lowville, N.Y., 1910. Octavo portfolios. Text in original wrappers, samples in card mounts unbound as issued. Occasional natural cracking and warping to a few samples. Very good. 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 brown cloth box, morocco label. 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 much larger 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 on accompanying stiff cardboard mounts. Seventy-five to eighty of these actual wood samples thus accompany each part, or about four hundred separate samples in the present set of the first five volumes. This mass of samples provides 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. The present set consists of the first five volumes. The first volume is the third edition (1910); the second volume is the second edition (1898); the third volume is the second edition (1900); the fourth volume is the first edition (1894); and the fifth volume is the first edition (1894). Hough issued his first portfolio in 1888 and his thirteenth in 1913. This was evidently all he intended to publish, since he lived for eleven years after the final portfolio appeared. In 1928, Hough's daughter issued a final supplementary volume. All of the portfolios issued by Hough were published by him in his hometown of Lowville, New York. Portfolios cost five dollars a piece, a very high price, reflecting the great difficulty in assembling them. Since subscribers came and went over the quarter century span of publication, and many only purchased the individual portfolios of interest to them, very few complete sets were assembled. It is sufficiently rare that TAXONOMIC LITERATURE only notes six of the parts. Parts I through IV cover New York and adjacent states, and Part V covers Florida. The remaining parts are not present here. Parts VI through X describe the Pacific Slope, Parts XI through XII cover the Atlantic states, and Part XIII covers southern Florida. The final part, XIV, continued with the trees of Florida. One of the greatest American works on trees and woods, a labor of love, here in a set of the first five volumes.

        Lettre autographe signée - 1951 (à Roger Parry) / Au sujet de ses portraits photographiques

      - (1910-1986). Ecrivain, poète et auteur dramatique français. Lettre autographe signée, sans lieu ni date, (1951), à Roger Parry, 1 page in-4°. Rectangle dessiné en bas de page de la main de Genet. L’écrivain demande au photographe Roger Parry de faire des tirages de certaines photographies. Il lui demande aussi de mettre ces tirages sur le compte de son éditeur Gaston Gallimard. « Voulez-vous être brave : faites moi 5 photos du numéro 1 (en haut et à droite) et 5 photos du numéro 6 (en bas et à droite). J’aimerais que le format soit à peu près celui que je dessine ici. Ou légèrement plus grand si vous y tenez. J’aimerais bien encore que vous le mettiez au compte de Gaston (Gallimard). Si c’est impossible tant pis. Je vous paierai moi-même. Dites lui que c’est de la publicité ! J’espère bien prendre un verre avec vous un de ces jours. S’il vous plait expédiez moi les photos chez moi, le plus vite possible. Je voudrais en emporter à Rome jeudi. Ou laissez les à la NRF mais prévenez moi par pneu. Amicalement. Jean Genet. 16 rue Chevalier de la Barre. Paris 18e ». Jean Genet rajoute en haut de la page dans le coin gauche : « Si Gallimard refuse de payer, marquez-moi le prix dans le pneu ». Roger Parry (1905-1977) réalisa en 1951 plusieurs portraits de Jean Genet sur les quais de la Seine à Paris. En 1951 paraît chez Gallimard ses œuvres complètes.
