        African Game Trails. An Account of the African Wanderings of an American Hunter-Naturalist.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1910 - First edition of Theodore Roosevelt's classic work. Octavo, original cloth, gilt top edge, photogravure frontispiece, illustrated, 48 plates, map of Roosevelt's route and hunting trips in Africa. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To General Sir Reginald Wingate with the high regard of Theodore Roosevelt April 21st 1911." The recipient, Reginald Wingate was a British general and administrator in Egypt and the Sudan. He earned the nom de guerre Wingate of the Sudan. In December 1899, on Lord Kitchener being summoned to South Africa, Sir Reginald Wingate succeeded him as Governor-General of the Sudan and Sirdar of the Egyptian Army, being promoted to local major general on 22 December 1899. His administration of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, between 1899 and 1916, achieved the colonial goals of the British Empire, with the colony regaining a degree of prosperity and its infrastructure being rebuilt and expanded. In near fine condition with light rubbing and wear to the extremities. A nice association, trade editions of African Game Trails are rare. "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). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Max Weiß (* 19. Juli 1874 in Wittenberg unbekannt) war ein deutscher Major, Politiker und Landrat sowie Forschungsreisender und Topograf in Zentral- und Ostafrika. Max Weiß schlug zunächst die militärische Laufbahn ein. 1895 wurde er Sekondeleutnant im Infanterie-Regiment Herzog Karl von Mecklenburg-Strelitz (6. Ostpreußisches) Nr. 43 der Preußischen Armee in Königsberg und 1899 in das Eisenbahn-Regiment Nr. 1 in Berlin versetzt. Später diente Weiß als Hauptmann im Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 148. 1901 wurde er zum Reichskolonialamt abkommandiert. Er absolvierte ein zweisemestriges Studium an der Universität Göttingen. Von 1902 bis 1905 war er Mitglied der Deutsch-Englischen Grenzexpedition im Norden Deutsch-Ostafrikas. 1906 wurde er zur Landesaufnahme an die trigonometrische Abteilung des Großen Generalstabes kommandiert. 1907/08 nahm er als Topograph an der Deutschen Wissenschaftlichen Zentralafrika-Expedition des Herzogs Adolf Friedrich zu Mecklenburg teil. Nach seiner Rückkehr wurde Weiß 1911 an der Universität Rostock mit der Arbeit Die geschichtliche Entwicklung der Photogrammetrie und ihre Bedeutung für Geographen und Forschungs-Reisende als aktiver Oberleutnant zum Dr. phil. promoviert. 1912 nahm er Abschied aus dem Militärdienst und trat in das Reichskolonialamt über. Während des Ersten Weltkrieges war er von 1914 bis 1916 beim Stab der 8. und 9. Armee. 1916/17 nahm er als Bataillonskommandeur im Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 226 an den Kämpfen an der Ost- und Westfront teil. Zuletzt diente er als Major 1917/18 als Abteilungsleiter im Kriegspresseamt. Ab 1918 war Weiß in der Deutschnationalen Volkspartei tätig, zunächst ehrenamtlich, ab Juni 1919 als Landesgeschäftsführer im Landesverband Potsdam, ab 1920 dann als Hauptgeschäftsführer der Partei in Berlin bis zum Jahre 1929. Er leitete auch deren Deutschnationale Schriftenvertriebsstelle. 1933 wurde er zunächst kommissarisch, ab 1934 endgültig Landrat des Kreises Niederbarnim. Er gab u. a. den Verwaltungsbericht Fünf Jahre Aufbauarbeit im Kreis Niederbarnim 1. Apr. 1933 31. März 1938 heraus. Seine Amtszeit endete wohl im November 1944, als sein Nachfolger Oskar Funk kommissarisch berufen wurde. (Wikipedia) Afrika-Expedition 1907/08: Bereits im Jahr 1904 begann Adolf Friedrich mit den Planungen einer umfangreichen wissenschaftlichen Afrikaerkundung. 1907 wurde er Leiter einer teils von ihm finanzierten wissenschaftlichen Forschungsreise in das Gebiet des Zentralafrikanischen Grabens. Im Mai 1907 nahm die Expedition in Mombasa ihren Anfang. Sie führte zum Victoriasee, dann zum Kivusee und in das Kongogebiet. Auch das Gebiet am Uelle war Ziel der Erkundungsreise, die im Juni 1908 erfolgreich beendet werden konnte. Die Expedition brachte insgesamt 1017 Schädel mit nach Deutschland] Zumeist wurden die menschlichen Schädel ohne Zustimmung der Einheimischen oder der Angehörigen der Toten aus den Gräbern entnommen. Die umfangreiche zoologische Ausbeute der Expedition wurde an das Zoologische Museum in Berlin übergeben. Das Botanische Museum zu Berlin erhielt hingegen den Großteil der botanischen Exponate. 1907 begaben sich die Teilnehmer der von Herzog Adolf Friedrich geführten Expedition in das Gebiet der Virunga-Vulkane in Deutsch-Ostafrika. Dort bestiegen die Expeditionsteilnehmer einige der vulkanischen Erhebungen. Darunter war auch ein wenige Kilometer vom Nyamuragira gelegener Vulkankegel, der 1904 aufgrund vulkanischer Aktivität entstanden war. Der Geologe Egon Freiherr von Kirschstein und der Topograph Max Weiß waren die ersten Europäer die den Vulkankegel während der Expedition aufsuchten. Sie verliehen dem kleinen Vulkankegel den Namen Adolf-Friedrich-Kegel (Adolf-Friedrich-Vulkan)

        Coupe Vanderbilt / Le Match Gabriel -- Long-Island Railroad, au passage a niveau d'Hicksville

      M.M., Paris 1910 - Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition. The Vanderbilt Cup began on Long Island in 1904, modeled after the European long distance races. The race was supported by the local elite and the fledgling AAA, while it was opposed by farmers, politicians and the local press. Eighteen competitors took part in the first race. 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. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [Photo Album]: Vassar

      Poughkeepsie, New York, 1910. Good. Oblong octavo. Brown leather over paper boards measuring 8" x 6". A collection of 144 sepia toned and black and white photographs affixed to stiff black paper with a very few loose ones laid in, contains only a single caption. Various sizes including 2" x 3", 4" x 3.25", 3.5" x 3.5", and others. Good only with detached but present boards, worn edges, heavy rubbing, and the first page detached, photos are clear with very slight curling. From the single caption and photos of a college campus, most notably what appears to be the Thompson Memorial Library, the album is presumably from a woman attending Vassar College. The album depicts dorm rooms as well as women picnicking, hanging bird houses, and posing around the campus. In one group a throng on women is marching around carrying a sign that says "1907." Further along in the book are photos of boating trips, bicycle repairs, and a few night shots, one of which is of a bolt of lightening.

        IDYLLEN DES THEOKRIT

      Eugen Diederichs, Jena 1910 - 195 x 120 mm. (7 5/8 x 4 3/4"). xii, 65, [1] pp.Translated by Eduard Mörike. No. 505 OF 850 COPIES. TASTEFUL BURGUNDY CRUSHED MOROCCO BY ALFRED DE SAUTY (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with gilt-rule frame with three inlaid green morocco dots at corners, upper cover with matching central lozenge containing the initials A. S., raised bands, gilt-ruled spine compartments, gilt titling, turn-ins with gilt French fillet, edges untrimmed. Original burgundy wrappers bound in. Front flyleaf with ink inscription (dated Dusseldorf, 1910) to calligrapher and type designer Anna Simons from F. H. Ehmcke, designer of the type in this volume. A breath of rubbing to lower corners, otherwise A SUPERB COPY, exceptionally fine inside and out. This lovely item is tied in every way to the Arts and Crafts movement of the late 19th and early 20th century: it is beautifully printed by a German publisher inspired by Ruskin, bound by a leading practitioner of Arts and Crafts techniques, and presented by the designer of types used here to a woman who became the principal type designer for the Bremer Press. The "Idylls" of the greatest of Greek pastoral poets, Theocritus (third century B.C.), are the earliest known "bucolic" poems and the model for Virgil's "Eclogues." The translation here is by German Romantic poet Eduard Mörike (1804-75), praised by Ludwig Wittgenstein as "a great poet" whose work was "very closely related to Goethe's." Part of the German Arts and Crafts movement, Deutsche Werkbund, publisher Eugen Diedrichs (1867-1930) set up his press in Jena as a Kulturverleger [culture publisher] dedicated to bringing great works of literature to the common people, rather than producing avant-garde works for an elite audience. The attractive typefaces used here are Ehmcke-Antiqua and Ehmcke-Kursiv, designed in 1909-10 by typographer and graphic designer Fritz Helmuth Ehmcke (1878-1965). Ehmcke had this book bound by another member of the Arts and Crafts movement, Alfred de Sauty, who trained briefly at the end of the 19th century at Riviere in London and subsequently made designs for the Hampstead Bindery and taught at the London County Council School of Arts and Crafts. In 1908 he immigrated to America, becoming manager of the extra bindery at the R. R. Donnelly Co. in Chicago, where he became known as one of the most accomplished binders at work in the first third of the 20th century. The recipient of this lovely volume was Anna Simons (1871-1951), who studied with Edward Johnston at the Royal College of Art in London before returning to her native Germany. At the time she received this volume, she was teaching a lettering course at the Düsseldorf Kunstakademie, translating Johnston's work into German, and organizing exhibitions of British book arts. She designed the type for the second Bremer Press book (the 1914 Tacitus), and became the principal designer for the Press. Johnston's biographer called her "one of the best students Johnston ever had and certainly one of those who exercised the greatest influence afterwards, for she disseminated his teaching throughout Germany where it was perhaps more fruitful, even, than in England." This lovely item is tied in every way to the Arts and Crafts movement of the late 19th and early 20th century: it is beautifully printed by a German publisher inspired by Ruskin, bound by a leading practitioner of Arts and Crafts techniques, and presented by the designer of types used here to a woman who became the principal type designer for the Bremer Press.

        Roald Amundsen Signed Photograph.

      Sepia tone photograph of heroic expedition leader Roald Amundsen in arctic gear. Boldly signed by Roald Amundsen on the lower right corner. In fine condition. Double matted and framed. The photograph measures 7 inches by 10 inches. The entire piece measures 16.5 inches by 18.5 inches. Photographs signed by Amundsen are rare. Roald Amundsen was a key expedition leader throughout the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration and the leader of the Antarctic Expedition of 1910-12, which was the first to reach the South Pole. In 1926, he became the first explorer to lead an air expedition to the North Pole, making him the first person, without dispute, to reach both poles. He is also known for leading the first expedition to traverse the Northwest Passage (1903-06) in the Arctic. In June 1928, while taking part in a rescue mission for the airship Italia, Roald Amundsen's plane disappeared, ending his epic and heroic career.

        Tafel LIX - Sommer -Wohnsitz fur Herrn Harold Mc,Cormick, Lake Forest, Illinois Ansicht Vom Michigan-Seel (Wasmuth Portfolio Plate 59 Harold McCormick House)

      Ernst Wasmuth, Berlin 1910 - A rare, antiquarian, unframed, lithograph from Frank Lloyd Wright's (1867-1959) "Wasmuth Portfolio of 1910-Vol 2", on an approximate 25-1/4" x 15-7/8" sheet, with title in print UL, "Tafel LIX - Sommer -Wohnsitz fur Herrn Harold Mc,Cormick, Lake Forest, Illinois Ansicht Vom Michigan-See", publisher information in print UR, "Gedruckt Und Verlegt Von Ernst Wasmuth, A. G., Berlin" with "1907" penned in and the FLW monograph impressed LL. This print is on heavy grey stock, lightly soiled and age-toned with a couple splash and drip marks, sporadic smudging, creasing, tearing, chipping with some loss along peripheries, and tack holes in corners. . Considered a rare landmark architectural publication and commonly referred to as the "Wasmuth Portfolio", "Ausgeführte Bauten und Entwürfe von Frank Lloyd Wright", was published in Berlin in 1910-1911 by the Wasmuth Verlag, under Ernst Wasmuth. The 'portfolio' was the first of Wright's published works and, in its two volume elephant folio, contained 100 lithographic plates featuring plans and perspectives of 70 examples of the prairie-style designs pioneered by Wright between 1893 and 1909. The drawings were produced by Wright and members of his staff including his son, Taylor Woolley, and Marion Mahoney Griffin, one of the first female licensed architects in the world, whose renderings were known to be a signature element of Wright's style and, who is thought to have made more than half the renderings. Each plate was printed from lithographic stones on grey and white paper stock using variously brown, gray, gold and white ink with Wright's famous monograph impressed thereon. The 1st edition was made on papers and tissues 64cm x 40.5cm in size and printed in Berlin, Chicago and Osaka. Later printings were published up until 1975 but, on reduced size paper without the embossed FLW monograph. Wright funded the venture himself and spent a year touring Europe to promote the 'portfolio' and study Europe's great architecture first-hand. The 'portfolio' was limited to 1,000 copies and, while as many as 100 copies were thought to have remained in Europe, most were brought back to America and only somewhere between a dozen and 50 sets are believed to have survived a fire in 1914 at Wright's Taliesin home where many suffered some degree of fire or water damage. The 'portfolio' marked the beginning of Wright¿s influence on European architecture and copies of the portfolio were obtained by Europe's most prominent designers including Otto Wagner, Rudolf Schindler, Richard Neutra, Walter Gropius, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Auguste Perret, Le Corbusier, and Hendrik Berlage, among others. Designers who were notably influenced by the powerful simplicity of Wright¿s new prairie-style forms, the clarity of his structural expression, his unabashed use of new materials, his integration of furnishings with buildings, and his integration of buildings with their sites. .

        [Trade Catalogue] Fourrures Max Édité par les Fourrures Max. Quelques Modèles en Fourrures pour l'Hiver 1910-1911 par Leroy & Schmidt

      Paris: Draeger Imprimerie, 1910. First edition. A most unusual trade promotion fur catalogue, housed in a Japanisme leporello featuring five color illustrations. Closed, 28 by 13.5 cm. With four folds, forming ten panels. Three of the illustrations are double paneled, two are single, and the first panel has text, while onto the final panel is pasted an envelope which contains within a folded cover sheet and six cards, each with a tinted illustration of a woman wearing one of the company's furs. These cards, which are the real heart of the promotion, are each 23.5 by 11 cm. The Japanisme-inspired illustrations are not entirely irrelevant to the product on offer, as they tell the story of Prince Kararih who is seeking a special fur as a gift and goes out hunting to kill this ferocious beast to obtain it. The narrative is told in French verse captions. Back to the cards, they show soigne women in lavish creations designed by Leroy and Schmidt, who we can infer were top designers for Max Fourrures, but possibly not the only ones the company used. The illustrations are very much in keeping with the style of "Le Bon Ton" and other tony fashion publications of the teens, these, without the pochoir color. The whole production of this trade promotion was produced by Draeger, which brought a singular exquisite panache to the many commercial publications it did during the first half of the twentieth century. The outer cover sheet for the cards has foxing, and there is some light foxing, not much though, on the margins of the leporello paper.
