        The National Game

      St. Louis: National Game Publishing Company. 1910. First. First edition. 410pp. Corners a little bumped, and the gilt spine lettering a little tarnished but easily readable, a tight, fine copy. The 1911 Second edition, revised, is occasionally touted as the "preferred" edition. While that edition is slightly updated, claims to its extensive "revision" are belied by the fact that it contains the exact number of pages as this volume. The sportswriters' wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown is named after Spink. A beautiful copy of a very scarce and important book, usually found well-worn. .

        Frauenkopf. Expressives farbintensives Ölgemälde in der Stilrichtung der Schule von Matisse.,

      Ca. 1910. - Öl auf Malkarton, 37 x 29 cm, rechts unten signiert. *Bildnis eines Frauenkopfes mit Hut, schwarz konturierte Umrisslinien in expressiver Malweise und Farbgebung, das Gemälde zeigt ganz deutlich den Einfluss von Henri Matisse. - Rosam begann seine Malerlaufbahn mit 18 Jahren, 1901 wurde er Schüler des Hamburger Malers Arthur Siebelist. Als einer der talentiertesten Mitglieder des Hamburgischen Künstlerklubs unternahm er 1907 eine Reise nach Paris und schloss sich dort dem Künstlerkreis des "Cafe du Dome" an. 1909 folgt eine erneute Parisreise mit Nölken, Ahlers-Hestermann und Gretchen Wohlwill. "Die drei Hamburger" wurden von der Academie Matisse aufgenommen. In den Jahren 1910 und 1911 unternahm der Künstler Studienreisen nach Südfrankreich und Italien, in dieser Zeit ist wohl das vorliegende Gemälde entstanden. - Wenn sein Schaffen heute kaum noch geläufig ist, so liegt das auch daran, daß sich von Rosam (im Gegensatz zu dem ebenfalls früh gestorbenen Kollegen Franz Nölken) nur wenige Werke erhalten haben (1985 waren gerade einmal 18 Werke bekannt). Das vorliegende Frauenbildnis spiegelt den atemberaubenden Farbensinn von Rosams Lehrer Henri Matisse wider, das Bildnis selbst ist dagegen von einem ganz eigenartigen in sich ruhenden Ausdruck erfüllt. Wohl eines der gelungensten und ausdruckstärksten Werke von Rosam. - Seine vielversprechende Malerkarriere fand bald ein jähes Ende auf den Schlachtfeldern des Ersten Weltkrieg: Rosam fiel als Soldat im August 1916 in der Ukraine.

      Anton Schroll & Co, Wien 1910 - folio. bound text of cloth over limp boards followed by loose plates, all inside a stiff-backed portfolio (cloth over boards) with deco. (iv) pages, 80 columns, 81-84 pages; 100 loose sheets. Auswahl von technisch und geschichtlich bemerkenswerten Stücken, 100 Tafeln in Licht- und Steindruck, mit Einleitung von T. (Book bindings. Selection of technically and historically noteworthy items, 100 plates in photo- and lithographic prints, with introduction by Theodor Gottlieb). Catalogue for an exhibition or display of 116 significant bindings from the collection of the "Imperial-Royal [K.K.] Court Library" (now the National Library of Austria): bindings from the 6th to the 19th century (mostly, however European bindings of the 15th and 16th centuries) mostly in leather (morocco, calf, sheepskin) over boards (paper or wood) with covers decorated with metal pieces and/ or blind- or gilt-tooled or -stamped designs in various styles (mosaic, panelled, diapered, center- and cornerpieces in borders, pictorial, strapwork, oddities or mixed styles, etc.) sometimes with other colors. There is a certain emphasis on south German and Austrian bindings. The purpose of the exhibition was not primarily aesthetic - though most of the bindings have a striking appearance - but to show the development of the structure and decoration of books. In this respect, one is particularly struck by the many correspondences between the ten medieval Middle Eastern bindings presented, and medieval and later European bindings. The accompanying folio-sized brochure contains an article on the history of bookbinding and decoration, followed by the catalogue of 116 bindings (plus several doublures), index and bibliography. Entries discuss decoration, decorative elements, and sometimes binding structure, with references to other bindings. Entries also indicate contents and provide information on provenance, binders, etc., along with references, as appropriate. The illustrations themselves are monochromatic photolithographic plates with chromolithographic highlighting of gilding and other coloration. The outer portfolio is split along the front hinge. With the Randeria bookplate. bound text of cloth over limp boards followed by loose plates, all inside a stiff-backed portfolio (cloth over boards) with deco [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Ty Cobb signs a rare presentation folder, billing himself as "The World's Greatest Ball Player"

      His signature, "Very Truly Ty Cobb," accomplished on the center fold of a 12.25" x 9.25" fold-out photographic display featuring two mounted 3.25" x 5.75" bust portraits of Cobb, one in his Detroit Tigers uniform, the other in formal attire. Cobb has added his signature vertically between the two images. The two mounted images were housed in a folded brown paper presentation folder bearing the title: "SOUVENIR PHOTOS OF Ty Cobb The World's Greatest Ball Player." The cover has been expertly separated from inside to allow for easy viewing. A few minor creases, vertical creases affects part of Cobb's signature, minor loss to the bottom of one image as well as to the two bottom corners, tears to the cover have been repaired with tape on the verso, else very good. Rare. Precious few examples (likely less than ten) of this signed presentation album have ever appeared on the market. The precise origin and date of these presentations are unknown, but judging from the paper and printed photographic images (as well as the relative youthful look of Cobb in the images themselves), it can be assumed the printing dates from circa 1910.

        My African Journey

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1910. Paperback. This is the 1910 vintage pulp paperback, the so-called "First Cheap Edition." My African Journey is Churchill's travelogue on Britain's possessions in East Africa, written while he was serving as Undersecretary of State for the Colonies. This book is notable, among other things, for being the only one of his many books to contain photographs apparently taken by the author. In the summer of 1907 Churchill left England for five months, making his way after working stops in southern Europe to Africa for "a tour of the east African domains." In early November, Churchill would kill a rhinoceros, the basis of the striking illustration on the front cover of the British first edition of his eventual book. By now a seasoned and financially shrewd author, Churchill arranged to profit doubly from the trip, first by serializing articles in Strand Magazine and then by publishing a book based substantially upon them. In November 1908 Hodder and Stoughton published My African Journey as a book, which was a substantial 10,000 words longer than the serialized articles. In 1910, two years after the first edition, the publisher issued a so-called "First Cheap Edition" produced in vintage "pulp" style. The text is arranged in a 92-page, two-column format with a few pages of advertisements at either end. This handsome paperback edition features a color illustration on the front cover similar to that of the first edition, with Churchill in pith helmet with binoculars around his neck and a rifle in his hands standing beside a dead white rhinoceros. Some 20,000 copies were produced, but given the fragility of the edition, very few survive today. And those that do are usually in poor condition - befitting a cheap paperback more than a century old. This copy is far from fine, but nonethless quite respectable given the age and inherent fragility of the edition. The covers remain firmly attached with some creasing and minor loss confined to the corners. The spine is substantially complete, with only a .5 inch loss at the head and .25 inch loss at the tail, leaving all spine lettering intact except for the "M" in the title. There is a horizontal closed tear spanning the spine and a short distance adjacent on both covers between "Hon." and "Winston". The contents are age-toned, as is ineveitable given the pulp paper, with minor loss to the corners of the first few pages, but otherwise clean, with no spotting or previous owner names. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A27.8, Woods/ICS A12(b), Langworth p.85

        Rare 1910 New York City Black Hand Wanted Poster for kidnappers of two young boys

      Original Wanted Poster, 9? x 11?. ?Arrest For Kidnapping / Rosario Castelli and Wife? above photograph at the left, ?Vito Sorisi? above photograph at the right. Captioned, in part, ?The above are wanted for kidnapping Giuseppe Longo and Michael Rizzo...? Receipt stamped ?Office Chief of Police / San Francisco / Feb 27 1911.? Mounted on another sheet, approximately the same size. Affixed on verso is a Winnipeg [Manitoba, Canada] 8.25? x 11? Poster ?Wanted / On Charges of Fraud and Theft,? picturing ?John Wood Alias Joseph H. Ward,? picturing him. Receipt stamped ?Office Chief of Police / San Francisco / Mar 1 1911.? Uneven edges. Wanted Posters are creased with folds. Very Good condition. The Black Hand was an extortion racket run by Italian immigrants which, by 1900, had been firmly established in major U.S. cities. Unlike the Mafia, Black Handers were an unorganized body, with no central leadership or structure. They would send a letter to a victim threatening bodily harm, kidnapping, arson, or murder. A specified amount of money was demanded and was to be delivered to a specific place. On the letter were symbols such as a skull, a knife dripping with blood, or a smoking gun, and was in many instances, signed with a hand imprinted or drawn in thick black ink. A New York journalist called them Black Hand letters and the name stuck. The Black Hand disappeared in the early 1920s as organized crime expanded. On December 31, 1911, ?The New York Times? ran a full page story titled ?Black Hand Crimes Doubles In Year Just Ended.? It was subheaded: ?Despite Assertions That Such Outrages Are Diminishing, 1911 Reached High Water Mark and Police Are Helpless Before a Society of Bomb Men and Kidnappers.? The article chronicles kidnappings, bombings, and murders in New York City in 1911. Referring to the kidnappings on the Wanted Poster here offered, in part, ?On Nov. 19 [1910] two Brooklyn boys, Michael Ruzzo, 8 years old, of 720 Fifth Avenue, and Giuseppe Longo, 8, of 186 Twenty-first Street, were kidnapped. They were lured away by a man who offered to take them to a moving picture show and were imprisoned in a house at 330 East Sixty-third Street, Manhattan. Then the fathers began to receive the usual letters ?" Longo, in fact, had been threatened before the kidnapping, and had kept his children in the house for some time, until his vigilance relaxed, On Dec. 8 [New York City Deputy Police Commissioner William J.] Flynn?s man, Detective Micelli, ascertained where the boys were and the house was suddenly raided. Little Giuseppe, when taken out of his prison on the second floor, begged profusely not to be beaten. The jailer of the boys was a woman, herself the mother of small children, named Maria Rappi. She and Stanislau Pattenza were convicted and sentenced to forty-nine years and eleven months each ... Many other arrests were made but Vito Sorrisi, the supposed leader of the band, escaped...? This was only the second time a Black Hand kidnapper had been caught. From the Collection of Michael Webb (1950-2009). Webb joined the Vinita Park, Missouri, police force as a patrol officer in 1974 and rose through the ranks. He was Police Chief of Vinita Park, a suburb of St. Louis, from 2001 until his death. Chief Webb was a collector of crime memorabilia that he bought from relatives of criminals and law officers. He had more than 8,000 wanted posters. Some of his items have been used in movies and displayed at the National Crime and Punishment Museum in Washington.
