Housed in specially custom-made, full blue straight-grain morocco solander box by Richard Smart (full description below).One of twenty-five copies printed on Japanese vellum and signed by both Sangorski and Sutcliffe. The interpretations of the Rubaiyat are justly famous and among their most important work. "The Great Omar", a nearly legendary copy in an exquisite jeweled binding, was on its way to America when it sunk with the Titanic in 1912. Francis Sangorski died later that year.Rubaiyat of Omar KhayyamSolander Box"My interest in this project;This book has always fascinated me due to its historical significance and the fact that the binders were Sangorski and Sutcliffe. For many reasons, like many, I was captivated by the story of The Great Omar that went down on the Titanic in 1912. The great ship hit an iceberg on April the 13th and finally sank on April 14th 1912. People tend to be fascinated by historical events that occurred in history on their birthdays. As my birthday is April 14th, the same day the Titanic went down, it was a great honor to be given an opportunity to work on this book.The binding was done by one of the most respected binderies in history, Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Many of their bindings are very elaborate and still easily found today in many collections and with book dealers around the world.This was also a time that my grandfather Charles Edward Smart was working as a forwarder at Sangorski and Sutcliffe, and my grandmother as a paper restorer at Bayntun Riviere?'s. They were another well-respected bindery with a history of binding Cosway bindings. The London bookshop Henry Sothern?'s commissioned both the Omar Khayyam and many Sangorski bindings, and the Cosway bindings bound by Riviere?'s My family history in the bookbinding world also goes back three generations working with the family of David Brass.So for me, the chance to make a box for Mr. Brass and this wonderful book was an incredible experience.I knew in today?'s world of getting work done quickly and efficiently, I could not put in the time on this box I really wanted to. To perfect the design and gold tooling as done by Sangorski would of taken many hours and a huge range of gold finishing tools. They required standard gouges and pallets, then shaped them to match the pattern they wanted to create. But now, with limited tools and being so expensive to buy, there had to be a compromise. It was necessary to match the design to the tools available.I bound the box in full blue straight grain Morocco, and started to sketch out a pattern that would have elements of the book design in it without making it look like I was trying to reproduce a Sangorski style binding. Using Grolieresque style on-lays of red and green leather, in a slightly Middle Eastern design, I was able to match elements in the design using gold tooling represented on the book. The design was sketched out on paper, helping achieve a feel for the size of the pattern to fit on the cover. I then marked out the cover in blind (no gold) and worked from there. The on-lay leather required thinning with a pairing knife to be create an almost see-through look. It was then pasted and laid in place carefully with the colors close to each other so the gold had a surface to adhere to. (and not just burn between the two surfaces of leather) This is particularly tricky when creating curves and corners.Once the leather design was pasted into place glaired and gold tooled, the inside of the box was lined with moiré silk. This was also a favorite style of Sangorski and Sutcliffe and another bindery of the time Zaehnsdorf?'s. From start to finish, this required about 36 hours of work, including the design on paper and determining the required tools to create the precise shape and style.This was nothing compared to the two years it took Sangorski to bind the Omar that was lost on the Titanic. At that time, although the design inspiration and much of the work was done by Francis Sangorski himself, the book would have passed though many hands. Such as the ladies sewing the book and sewing headbands in silk, then onto the forwarding department and finally to the finishers for the gold tooling. This process was also applied to this copy 1/25 Bound in Vellum however, the design and finishing details would be done (or closely overseen) by Sangorski himself. It was an absolute pleasure and highlight of my career to see this copy and make a box to house it for life.David, Many Thanks for this opportunity and the many opportunities you have given me to work on these amazing books that pass through your shop." (Richard Smart, October 13th, 2014).

        Album of Vernacular Photographs of Family Life

      [no date - circa 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. .

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1910. First edition. Large octavo, three quarters brown morocco, gilt topstain. Illustrated throughout. Inscribed by the author in the year of publication, "Inscribed for Elbert-Ellis Linn with the best wishes of Theodore Roosevelt Nov 22nd 1910." Also included are two letters, one from Roosevelt's secretary and the other from the recipient. In very good condition. Housed in a custom clamshell box. A very nice example with provenance. One of the most famous of all big-game hunting epics, this, with its larger than life sportsmen, was almost continuously in print until the 1930s. In British East Africa, Roosevelt hunted lion and plains game on the Kapiti Plains, while, in the Bondoni hill country, he collected rhinoceros and giraffe. On Juja Farm, his son Kermit faced leopard, while Teddy bagged rhino and hippopotamus. On the Kamiti River, buffalo were taken. Near the Sotik, additional rhino and lion were hunted, with elephant bagged near Mt. Kenia. On the Guaso Nyiro, giraffe and a variety of plains game were shot. Further adventures included hunting elephant near Lake Nyanza, rhino and plains game in the Lado, and eland on the Nile. Roosevelt's total bag was enormous even by the liberal standards of that era" (Czech, 138-39).

        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.

        De Kleine Koning

      Amsterdam: Holkema & Warendorf Publishers, 1910. First edition thus. Large squarish folio size. In original publishers full beige pebbled cloth with illustration of comical king set off against a black background, bold gilt-blocking on cover, blindstamping, beveled boards, silk endsheets. Twelve exquisite mounted color plates highlighted using bold gilt as gold in the illustrations with striking bright colors, by HANS PELLAR. Each page with borders and text opposite illustrations. Printed (and mounted) on extremely thick watercolor paper. Superlatives lacking in describing the quality of this projection, no doubt trying to one-up the German first issue produced in Munich. One plate with crease, otherwise a strikingly clean and fresh copy of a scarce book to find in any presentable condition, owing to its size and weight. Pellar's illustrations here are among the most colorful and imaginative of any in the Jugendstil catalog.
