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.

        Framed Autographed Letter Signed on rare letterhead

      Chicago, 1910. unbound. 1 page on ornate "Ringling Brothers - Worlds Greatest Shows" letterhead, 11 x 8.5 inches, Chicago, March 12, 1910. Beautifully presented in a cream-colored matte and brown and gold frame measuring 15.5 x 13.5 inches. Written to the traffic manager of the St. Louis Railroad, in part: "...I beg to advise that Ringling Bros. Circus will exhibit in St. Louis the week of May 2nd. Will arrive at East St. Louis on the Big Four about one A.M. May 1st, and will want to be delivered to the Big Four loaded again about midnight May 7th at East St. Louis...Our equipment is as follows: 14 coaches, six box, 20 stock, 40 flats, and advertising cars Nos. 1, 2 and 3 and business car Wisconsin. I will be greatly obliged if you will send me the contracts for this movement at your earliest convenience." Note: this rare variety ornate letterhead was first used by the Ringling Brothers in 1909 and featured the images of brothers Al, Otto, Henry, Charles, and John. Upon the death of Otto Ringling at his 5th Avenue mansion in 1911, a new letterhead was commissioned. John Ringling is most desirable in letters that feature circus content of which only a few have entered the market in the past 20 years. In this case, due to the enormity of his circus, John Ringling needed to lease an astonishing 84 railroad cars from the St. Louis Terminal which was, without doubt, the biggest single expense of the circus. He solved this problem in 1919 by purchasing The St. Louis & Hannibal Railroad for $325,000 and hiring Mr. John Lewis Penney as his Traffic Manager, to whom this letter is addressed. Because this letterhead was printed on wood pulp paper, it was necessary to reinforce it by mounting it to another sheet in order to prevent further chipping and fraying at the margins. It has been restored to very good condition. The most well-known of the 5 Ringling brothers who merged the Barnum & Bailey Circus with their own family venture to create a virtual monopoly of traveling circuses in America.

The majority of photographs show Nigretia's voyages in the Mediterranean, showing Livorno (captioned as Leghorn), Bagnara (Calabria, Italy), Cagliari quay (Sardinia), St. Mark's Cathedral in Venice (mistakenly captioned as "St. Paul's"), ruins of Pompeii (five views), Nice (two views, including a photo of two American yachts in the harbour), the banks of the Bosphorus with Turkish fortresses, palaces, and the Ortaköy Mosque (three views). The Mediterranean coast of North Africa is represented with seven views of the Algerian ports of Bona (Annaba) and Honaine (with interesting images of construction works over the loading docks), and three views of Nigretia off Tripoli, including a group portrait of Arab workers on the steamer's deck. There are also four interesting images of the Russian ports of Odessa and Archangelsk with loaders at work and piles of wooden planks prepared for transportation; views of the Kiel Canal with the Levensau High Bridge (Germany, launched in 1895), the Port of Hull (Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire), two photos of Dartmouth, Devon, and a photo of Nigretia in the port of Charlestown, the United States. A series of photos taken on board Nigretia show its cargo deck, working crew members, and the interior of the salon with several senior officers posing. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Yangtze River - Two Chinese illustrated blockbooks dating around 1910.

      . One blockbook in folio with 61 double leaves of text and 25 woodblock plates (32.5 x 24.1 cm) depicting flowers, trees, blossoms. The other blockbook in oblong 4to with 7 double leaved text pages and 53 woodblock prints depicting this famous Chinese river Yangtze with its shores, ships and landscapes. In original blue sewn covers. The folio-sized book has new brown paper covers.* A fine set of the views and natural history of the Yangtze river. As far we could track the title translates as follows: "Sanxia, the 3 gorges of the Yangtze". The views are very fine and it seems that the oblong booklet tries to give a complete view of the shores of the river, from its origins to the sea. The botanical atlas has a large text section which is followed by the plates, each showing 4 figures of plants, trees and fruit found alongside the river. Very good copies, some scattered foxing in the oblong volume, last pages of the folio volume with some yellow staining. Rare..

        Rare Tribal Photos of the Nearly Extinct Semang Nomadic Peoplpe of Malaysia

      1910. Malaysia, circa 1910. Set of 5 original photographs, four of which are of nomadic hunter-gatherer Semang people, one of which shows a building with signage in Chinese, erected against a rock face, possibly to service a mining settlement. The stamp of the Georgetown Dispensary in Ipoh is present to verso of two photographs. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 3.5 x 3 inches, and the largest 4 x 6 inches. Indication of mounting to verso, tear to upper right corner of one image only, otherwise the lot in very good condition. Four photographs, featuring Malaysia's aboriginal Semang people, the original forest people of old Malaya, capture the simplicity and collectivism of nomadic tribal life, one which is in grave danger of extinction. Only men are seen in these images, all providers for the tribe, some with water gourds and cloth tied into sacs to carry their harvest from the jungle, and many with long blowguns for hunting small game. A group of hunters appears to be perched above a broken bamboo trap, presumably from a successful catch. One of the photographs features an imbedded caption naming the group "Sakais of Malaysia", a term which is generally considered derogatory, by the Negrito Semang people, albeit still an interesting image as it shows that only one of the men has been influenced by Europeans, as he wears short trousers. The other men in these images are wearing the traditional cloth made from the bark of the terap tree. [Today, the Semang sub group of Orang Asli are regarded as facing the danger of extinction due to its smallest number of population compared to other sub-groups of Orang Asli. Some sub-groups of the population are undergoing drastic transformation of their life due to modernization process putting their language and culture in imminent endangerment.] A rather unique multi-story wooden building, constructed against the side of a mountain cliff, and bearing Chinese signs, is not identified but for the signs in the image itself. Possibly being in Malaysia also, this may have been used by Chinese immigrants who were working in the mines in the second half of the nineteenth century. [Large numbers of Chinese immigrated, mainly from the controlled port of the Fujian and Guangdong provinces, to Malaya and Straits Settlements, from the late 19th century to the early 20th century, with the aid of British administration who used the Chinese "coolies" to work in tin mines and rubber plantations, and sometimes as officers in the army. In this period the Chinese established Chinese Schools.] Two of the photographs are stamped on the verso of the Georgetown Dispensary, which was established in 1892 on Station Road in the Kinta district of Ipoh, capital of Perak stat, in Malaysia. Originally founded as Oldfield Dispensaries, Ltd. by its chief chemist, an Englishman named A. Oldfield, who was nicknamed "Tuan Lima Kupang" which means fifty cents and was his fee for most all prescriptions. The dispensary was situated in an elegant building owned by Chung Thye Phin, wealthy Penang rubber planter and tin miner, in around 1909-1910, when Oldfield retired in England, it was acquired by the Penang-based Georgetown Dispensary. Originally known as the Medical Hall, this building also housed the medical practice of Dr R.M. Connolly, an Irish doctor. .
