      The three items are: (1) "Homeseekers' Rates." [Tampa Bay Land Company: Tampa, Fla., February 16, 1910]. Small broadsheet, 4 x 9 in. Quoting rates for travel from various cities in the mid-west and on the east coast, to Tampa "[e]ffective March 1st, and sold only on the first and third Tuesdays of each month until December...bearing a limit of twenty-five days for the round trip and with stop-over privileges allowed." Original envelope, printed with the address of the land company included. (2) "South Tampa Bulletin and Keystone Park Colonist." [Tampa, Florida: June, 1910]. A four-page promotional pamphlet, 13 1/2 x 9 in. Illustration of "An Ideal Ten-Acre Grove and Farm," from the Civil Engineering firm of Ellis, Curtis, & Kooker, on page 3; and a coupon to be clipped and mailed with a "first payment on ... acres in South Tampa...." on page 2. A report on the progress and development of the community. (3) "South Tampa, Hillsborough County Florida, Fruit and Vegetable Farms, Tampa Bay Land Co." [nd, ca.1910]. Numbered plat map, 15 x 12 in., black & white on buff paper, with small annotation in red pencil marking off three adjoining parcels. Hillsborough Bay is noted at left margin, a paved road to Riverview runs north-south. Other locations noted on the map include Dishong Mineral Spring, Croft Mineral Springs, Yoman's Celery Farm, the South Tampa station, and three schools. The Tampa Bay Land Company was charted in Florida, ca. 1906 and was able to take advantage of the Florida land boom between 1910-1925. The bulletin included here promotes the company's efforts in both Keystone Park and South Tampa, selling truck farms in both locations. It states that the company opened South Tampa to "the buying public December 15, [1909]...[t]oday crops are growing on more than two score plats of ground, chicken ranches have been established, the tract is dotted with homes in cottage and bungalow style... and the proposition looks prosperous from every standpoint." It points to several public improvements being made in the South Tampa area, including paved roads and development in the vicinity of the South Tampa Station. According to the Manufacturers Record publication of 1912, "Thirty Years of Southern Upbuilding": Tampa Bay Land Company was "the owner of Keystone Park, the original colony of Hillsborough county, and of South Tampa, the only city-suburban colony in Florida. It has the endorsement of the Tampa Board of Trade, the Dade City Board of Trade, the Tampa banks, the newspapers and thousands of satisfied customers who have dealt with it and who know it makes its every promise good." The bursting of the real estate bubble in the mid-1920's and the Great Depression which followed spelled the collapse of the company. No listings found on OCLC for these three items. Not listed in Servies which list only one earlier land development piece for Tampa also by the Tampa Bay Land Company in 1909.

      1910. STRAVINSKY, Igor.[Russian title in Cyrillic.] L'Oiseau de Feu. Conte Dansé en 2 Tableaux. Composé d'après le conte national russe par M. Fokine… Piano à 2 mains.Moscow: P. Jurgenson, [1910].First edition, piano score of Stravinsky?'s first ballet.The Firebird is the work which first earned Stravinsky a reputation beyond Russia's borders. The ballet draws on Russian folk-tales, bringing together the Romantic interest in the supernatural and in nationalist feeling. "Stravinsky worked on his music for a year, usually aided by Fokine, who had prepared the scenario. 'They worked very closely together, phrase by phrase,' wrote Lincoln Kirstein in his biography of Fokine… Stravinsky completed his score in May 1910, and on June 25 L'Oiseau de Feu (The Fire-Bird) was presented at the Paris Opéra with Fokine, Madame Fokina, and Karsavina as the principal dancers… On the opening night Debussy rushed backstage to embrace Stravinsky" (Cross, II: 779). The Firebird, in its Tchaikovskian and Rimskian lushness, stands in stark contrast to the spare, restrained works of Stravinsky's later, "neo-classical" period, and he was eventually to repudiate it. Yet he reworked it into an orchestral suite in several different versions, and continued to perform it throughout his career.De Lerma, O9.Interior fine, with only light spotting to title page, text block expertly reinforced; only light wear to fragile wrappers. Near-fine condition.

        Go Fusuma Mi Hon. [Fusuma handmade samples]

      Kyoto: , c.1910. Landscape quarto (198 × 271 mm). Original bark-textured grey paper-covered boards, punch sewn with purple silk ties, calligraphic title label mounted on the front board, grey on grey, silhouette maple leaf-pattered pastedowns 22 samples, all with rubber-stamped maker's name, and discreet inked inventory notes. A little used, with minor wear along the board edges, and some chipping at the head and tail of the spine, the contents with some light foxing or browning in places, showing versos. Meiji-era salesman's sample catalogue with a selection of superb hand-stencilled paper and paper-backed silks for use on Japanese fusuma room dividing screens, some of them showing clear Arts & Crafts influence. The selection begins with two plain heavily textured papers, followed by three where designs are printed onto a bark-texured paper similar to that used in the binding, the first with a repeated geometric design in brown and charcoal on a grey wash, the others with stylised floral designs, highlighted with gold "splashes"; the next group consists of three designs on straw-textured paper, all concentrating on foliate motifs, the most striking with juxtaposed squares of golden ochre and pale green, the first, with a repeated vine leaf and tendril design, is "superimposed" over a square of red spattered with gold, the other has maple leaves in gold and autumnal orange-brown with ripples in silver; the next two designs are on fine-textured grey washi paper featuring abstract, naturalistic patterns, the first cloud-like, the second a "drip" pattern; five designs of a more designs follow, a densely repeated silver cloud design, two with repeated Paulownia flower mon patterns, one in blue and silver, the other with a larger silver crest, a pale grey paper chequer-boarded with an intricate stele-like device, the last with chrysanthemums, pale blue, gold, and silver, with leaves in dark green; the next group are of paper-backed silk, all in related colourways, employing subdued red, green and brown on a golden ochre ground with highlighting in silver or gold, showing clear influence from the Arts & Crafts movement, these range from a simple geometric design, to complex repeated mon decoration employing chrysanthemums, lotus petals and cranes, and include a very Morrisian design of small flowers on fine tendrils, petals outlined in old gold; the last two samples are half-page, and are of paper-backed, plain open-weave cloth in two shades of ecru. In all a beautiful collection of hand-finished materials showing designs from the period immediately predating the widespread commercialisation of fusuma production.

He must compare his colours with those of the picture he is about to copy, and before he begins to paint… (Instructions for Young Artists (inside front wrapper)Father Tuck's Little Artists' Series No. 4063.At the end of the last century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. ?"He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves?" (H.G. Wells).?"From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…[a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!?"

A printed manuscript poem by Burroughs, his most famous, first published in Knickerbocker magazine in 1863, when Burroughs was 25; anthologized in Whittier's Songs of Three Centuries in 1875. At that time the poem had seven stanzas; over the years the weakest stanza (the sixth of seven) was dropped (by an unknown editor). "Waiting" appeared as the preface to Burroughs' Light of Day in 1900 with six stanzas, but even so the fifth stanza continued to trouble him. According to the Clara Barrus biography Our Friend John Burroughs, published in 1914, "a few years ago" Burroughs occasionally substituted a new fifth stanza, beginning, "The law of love binds every heart..." (Later renditions have this line reading "The law of love threads every heart.) But that too failed to satisfy him, and future renditions would have the original six (of seven) stanzas. This broadside has the six stanzas, with the short-lived "binds every heart" fifth stanza; it is printed in Burroughs' holograph, with an original water color of tree branches, and it is inscribed by Burroughs, for Barnard C. Connelly, and dated Feb. 9, 1921, the month before Burroughs' death. 7" x 9-3/4", bevel-edged on three sides; previously framed and sunned over most of the page; staining to two margins, touching only the date. A very good copy. Although Burroughs wrote "considerable poetry as a young man" (his words, from John Burroughs Talks), "a time came when I wrote no more poetry and destroyed most of what I had done previously...I am practically a man of a single poem." We have found reference to a smaller (4-1/2" x 6") leaflet of this poem being done earlier, by Alfred Bartlett, but have found no record of the printing history of this variation. First Edition. No Binding.

        Report on Army Manoeuvres, 1909. [With:] Manoeuvres, 1909. War Office Instructions

      London: [printed by Harrison & Sons for the War Office,], 1910. Together 2 items: foolscap quarto, original buff cloth-backed printed boards; octavo, sewn in the original buff wraps. Tables, 2 of them folding, 6 folding maps in an end-pocket. Ex-Royal Army Military College Library, occasional ink stamps to the Report, boards slightly soiled, hinges a little loose, but contents clean and sound, the Instructions stamped on the upper panel of the wraps, else very good. Only edition, "for official use only": 1,060 copies of the first-named; 1,200 of the second, which is the handbook for participants. This is apparently unrecorded, though there is perhaps a copy in the Montgomery-Massingberd Papers at LHCMA, with less than a handful of copies for the Manoeuvres of 1925 located institutionally. Taking place under the direction of Sir John French as Inspector-General of the Forces, these manoeuvres pitted the Red Force under Lieut.-Gen. Sir H. L. Smith-Dorrien, his cavalry commanded by Brigadier E. A. H. Allenby, against the Blues commanded by Sir Arthur Paget. Many other names found in the composition of the forces would rise to prominence in just a few years time. An important resource on the preparedness of the British Army for the Great War.

Hardcover. 303 x 230 mm (11 7/8 x 9 1/8"). 172, [1] (limitation), [1] (blank), [1] (colophon), [1] (blank), [3] (specimen pages from the prospectus). First Edition in French, No. 258 OF 400 COPIES on Japon SIGNED by Dulac. PUBLISHER'S ORIGINAL DELUXE BINDING OF BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, HEAVILY GILT, BY DURVAND (stamp-signed on verso of front flyleaf), covers with triple gilt fillet border enclosing an elaborate gilt frame with cupids at corners and fancy gilt title lettering at center; flat spine with gilt decoration and lettering, gilt-ruled turn-ins, marbled endleaves, top edge gilt, original wrappers bound in. With head- and tailpieces, border designs for text and chapter pages, four decorative initials, two small medallions, and 30 COLOR PLATES BY DULAC mounted within decorative frames captioned in French, each with a tissue guard. Hughey 23x, 23aa (deluxe binding). Thin two-inch crack at bottom of front joint, trivial marks and soiling to covers, faint residue from leather dressing, spine evenly sunned, otherwise an excellent copy, with bright gilt and with text, plates, and tissue guards in pristine condition. This is one of the specially bound copies of the French edition of Dulac's lovely "Sleeping Beauty" and other fairy tales, a work justifiably described in the advertising literature of Hodder and Stoughton as "the most beautiful book ever published at a popular price." According to Ray, this is Dulac's "best work," full of ornate and attractive scenes for the title tale as well as "Cinderella," "Bluebeard," and "Beauty and the Beast." Our French edition contains head- and tailpieces, decorated initials, borders, and medallions not found in the original British edition, published in the same month and year. Edmund Dulac (1882-1953) was a French-born naturalized British citizen who illustrated books and magazine and designed stamps and currency. Born in Toulouse, he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts before moving to London. There, in 1905, he received his first commission, to illustrate the novels of the Brontë Sisters. He joined the London Sketch Club, which introduced him to England's foremost book and magazine illustrators. Through his new contacts, he began an arrangement with the Leicester Gallery and Hodder & Stoughton, with the gallery commissioning illustrations from Dulac which they sold in an annual exhibition. The publishing rights to those paintings were bought by Hodder & Stoughton for reproduction in illustrated gift books, and Dulac became the foremost illustrator during the golden age of deluxe gift books for children. Influenced by the work of the older artist Arthur Rackham, Dulac shows a sophisticated and exotic tone in his illustrations, with rich color reminiscent of the paintings of Gustav Klimt. When the children's book market contracted after World War I, he found work as a magazine illustrator. Later, he designed British currency and postage stamps, the most celebrated being those for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and the early years of her reign.

There is so much coming and going of strangers among us and the names of places are so frequently and fantastically altered. I have however written to the Clerk… begging him to make inquiries and to send me the result without delay, which I will immediately transmit to you and I hope in time… I remain, my dear Mr. Parry, with my high respects, faithfully yours, Wm. Wordsworth.'' "Mr. Parry" is possibly Charles Henry Parry, a physician and author who accompanied Coleridge on his tour of the Harz Mountains and was also a friend of Southey.Spines uniformly toned to brown.

[October, 1910]. First 're-issue' edition (first published 1907). Octavo (7 5/8 x 6 inches; 194 x 153 mm). 117, [1, blank], [1, printer's slug], [1, blank] pp. Eight color plates printed on glossy paper with captions printed in blue.Publisher's deep blue cloth, front cover pictorially stamped in gilt, spine lettered in gilt. Early ink inscription on front free endpaper. A fine copy."Fairies I Have Met was reviewed in Outlook in its Literary Supplement of New Children's Books, November 9, 1907. The reviewer spoke of the book as 'charmingly illustrated in colour by Edmund Dulac.' It would be hard to disagree…With the pictures here, Dulac displays a style much more humorous and whimsical than that of his illustrations for the Bronte novels two years earlier. The subjects are painted at close range, in deep colours, creating bolder designs and showing much detail, as opposed to the distant misty room or landscape scenery of the Bronte work" (Hughey).Hughey 15a.

        [Work-From-Home/Mail Order Business Archive]

      Various (Norwood OH, Pittsburgh PA, etc.), [ca. 1910-1912]. Very good. Archive containing a wide variety of printed materials, more than several dozen individual items, some 100+ pages in total. Toning, wear throughout. A handful of items fragile. But vast majority of contents generally very good. A detailed list of contents is available upon request. A substantial archive of broadsides, advertisements, flyers, catalogues, guides, correspondence, and other ephemera gathered by one H.W. Jones of Ohio in his quest to establish a profitable mail order and/or work from home business. The archive includes several small books and pamphlets on running a successful mail order business (as well as two sample business plans for same). Also numerous promotional circulars, catalogues, and other marketing materials for a wide variety of potential mail order goods: "instantaneous" water heaters, self-heating gasoline irons (yikes), bunion shields, rubber diapers, magic tricks, printing contraptions, joke books, tire repair kits, thimbles, fire engines, as well as other novelties and household products. A number of rate cards for placing classified and other advertisements are also present, as are form letters and other materials from several companies offering mail order services: addresses, leads, etc. The archive suggests Jones considered many of these possible avenues, but his longest sustained engagement appears to have been The United Manufacturing Company of Leipsic, OH - makers of "Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers." Extensive correspondence with the company (both form and personalized - including a vigorous defense of the product after Jones raised doubts) are present as are invoices, contracts, testimonials, and holograph drafts of Jones' own form correspondence on behalf of the product, likely produced in hopes of recruiting - as such schemes were wont to do - more salesmen. Overall, a fascinating look at pre-depression America through the lens of a dodgy industry that continues in many similar forms to this day.

      1910. Signed Trade. PUCCINI, Giacomo.La Fanciulla de West (The Girl of the Golden West).Milan: G. Ricordi, 1910.First edition, piano-vocal score for Puccini's classic opera of the American West, signed by Puccini on the date of the opera's premiere at the Metropolitan Opera House and signed as well by conductor Arturo Toscanini and various members of the original cast (Emmy Destinn, Adamo Didur, Dinh Gilly, Angelo Bada, and Giulio Rossi). Together with an original playbill for the performance.This copy of the score was presented to one J. P. Sanborn and is inscribed on the title page (in a hand other than Puccini's) "To Mr. J. P. Sanborn, with the Composer's Compliments-- New York, Dec. 10, 1910," with Puccini's full autograph signature appearing below. The signatures of Toscanini and the cast members appear on the page listing the performers. "On his first visit to the United States, in 1905, Puccini saw a performance of David Belasco's horse opera The Girl in the Golden West and was fascinated by the old stage wizard's tricks with moving scenery and an elaborate snowstorm. He was also fascinated by the warmth of the reception that America accorded him. But it was not until he had returned to Italy that he finally decided to make this play the vehicle for his next operatic score… `For this drama,' he said, `I have composed music that, I feel sure, reflects the American people, and particularly the strong, vigorous nature of the West'" (100 Great Operas and Their Stories, 216). The only signature absent among the cast members is that of Enrico Caruso, who performed the role of Dick Johnson.Hopkinson 7A.Score in fine condition, playbill with some restoration to rear wrapper and repair to inner hinges of some pages.
