        Circuit de L'Est Paris Troves Nancy Mezieres Amiens Paris, Le Blanc le gagnant passe pres de Mars-la-Tour sur monoplan Bleriot, moteur Gnome, magento Bosch.

      Mabileau & Co. Paris 1910 - Hand-coloured pochoir print, linen backed. Size: 90.2 cm x 45 cm. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Tennis. 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]

        Comœdia illustré No17: La Saison Russe a l'Opéra [1910].

      Comœdia illustré Paris 1 June 1910 - Folio (31.8 x 24.5 cm). [32] pp., illustrated throughout. Original colour printed wrappers. Fine example of the special issue of the Comoedia Illustré dedicated to the second Russian season in Paris performed at the beautiful building of the Grand Opera. The 1910 programme featured newly created pieces, such as Giselle, Les Orientales and Le Carnaval, and previously staged ballets like Le Festin, Les Sylphides and Cléopâtre. The star of the season was young Stravinsky's Firebird, which was first performed on 25 June 1910 and became an instant success with both audience and critics. Another piece produced specially for the second season was Schéhérazade. Described by Alexander Benois as "a wonderful spectacle to which I can hardly find a parallel", it was the first true creation of the Ballet Russes, because, except for the opera Prince Igor, all the other ballets in Diaghilev's first Paris season were fresh versions of already existing works. For financial reasons Diaghilev could not include any opera in his 1910 season, so for the first time he risked presenting only ballets. The cover of the 1910 issue features the famous colour photograph of Nijinsky and Karsavina in the ballet Les Sylphides. A four-page article titled "La saison russe à l'Opéra" presents the pieces scheduled for the season and shows pictures of some of the most famous Russian dancers – such as Fokina, Nijinsky and Gorchkova – in their beautiful costumes designed by Leon Bakst. Comoedia Illustré was a bimonthly artistic magazine published from 1908 to 1936 as a supplement to Comoedia. The latter was a French cultural periodical founded by Henri Desgrange, a French cyclist and sports journalist, who gained fame as the first organiser of the Tour de France. Comoedia Illustré played a crucial role in popularising the Russian ballet and making the programmes of Russian seasons available to the French public hungry for Russian exotics.

Full ivory vellum titled in gilt. Fine. Green morocco backed slipcase and chemise. One of 5 printed on pure vellum of a total of 10 surviving copies. [viii], [1]-90, [91] pp., with [9] added pages of corrections. 1 vols. 4to. One of 5 copies on vellum, with the corrections. Deirdre of the Sorrows was left unfinished at Synge's death in 1909. The play was completed by Yeats, who also contributed a Preface, and was first published by the Cuala Press in 1910. This is one of five copies on vellum of the first American edition, privately printed for John Quinn in an edition of 50. In comparing his printed edition (which follows the Cuala Press printing) to Synge's manuscript, Quinn noted an abundance of errors. An inserted 9-page printed errata at the rear of this copy is prefaced with a note by Quinn that he had destroyed all but 10 copies (the five on vellum and five on paper) and that a corrected edition is in preparation. "It is clear however, from the Quinn Sale catalogue, item 9982a, that this new edition never got beyond the proof stage, and it is not known exactly how many copies of the original issue had the corrections inserted" (Wade). Wade 246; Quinn sale 9982a. Provenance: John Quinn, to his sister Julia, and by descent in the family

        Opus divinum, cui titulus historiae naturalis, multoqua[m] antehac unqua[m] prodiit in luce[m] castigatius, una cu[m] annotationibus Hermanolai Barbari .Paris, Jean Petit (colophon: Nicolaus Sauetier), 1526. 2 parts in 1 volume (bound in reverse order). Folio. With title-page printed in red and black to the main work (bound second) and title-page to the index (bound first), both in woodcut border in four pieces. Contemporary or near contemporary calf, with the boards richly blind-tooled in a panel design; rebacked with part of the original backstrip laid down.

      - Bird 1910; USTC (2 copies); not in Adams; BMC French; Durling; Hunt; Wellcome. Very rare first Paris edition of Historiae naturalis, with the annotations by Hermolaus Barbarus. Pliny's Natural history is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman Empire to the modern day and purports to cover the entire field of ancient knowledge, based on the best authorities available at the time. It encompasses the fields of botany, zoology, astronomy, geology and mineralogy as well as the exploitation of those resources. It remains a standard work for the Roman period and the advances in technology and understanding of natural phenomena at the time. Pliny's accounts of some technical advances are the only sources for those inventions, such as hushing (using water to wash away soil) in mining technology or the use of water mills for crushing or grinding grain. Archaeological excavations have confirmed much of what he wrote. ''We know from Pliny that there were important pearl fisheries in the Gulf Pliny identifies Tylos (Bahrain) as a place famous for its pearls [He] attests that pearls were the most highly rated valuable in Roman society, and that those from the Gulf were specially praised The pearl related finds at the site of El-Dur indicate the site was integrated into the maritime trade routes linking the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, India and South Arabia'' (Carter). Book 6 holds a chapter that gives the first detailed account of the regions around the Gulf, including what are now Qatar, the Emirates and Oman. Hermolaus Barbarus (1454-1494) was an Italian Renaissance scholar. His discussions of Pliny's Naturalis Historia was first published as Castigationes Plinianae in 1492, in which he made over 5000 corrections to the original text. Due to this work and other classical works he translated or edited he was considered a leader authority on Latin and Greek work on antiquity.With manuscript inscriptions on title-page. The two parts bound in reverse order. Binding rebacked and restored, but with most of the central tooling on the boards still clear. Text in very good dcondition, with only a couple marginal waterstains and some minor thumbing.

        THE TALE OF MRS. TITTLEMOUSE

      1910 - London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1910. Original blue-grey paper-covered boards with hexagonal pictorial onlay. First Edition of Beatrix Potter's tale about a wood-mouse named Thomasina Tittlemouse. The tale tells of her attempts to keep her underground home neat and tidy in spite of various unexpected visitors ("friends" they were called in the manuscript: this was changed to "visitors" in the book, but even more appropriate would be "intruders"). These include bees, a beetle, a ladybug, a butterfly, a spider and of course the debonair toad Mr. Jackson. The manuscript also included three wood-lice, but Warne objected that such creatures did not belong in a children's book; so they are instead described as "three creepy-crawly people" in the book.~There were actually two printings during (and dated) 1910, but they are identical; the third was not until 1911. Customers were given the choice of buying MRS. TITTLEMOUSE in blue-grey or cream paper-covered boards priced at 1/-, or in decorated cloth priced at 1/6. For this title the pictorial paste-down endpapers were revised to their present-day design, showing Mrs. Tittlemouse and a bee in the upper right corner of each paste-down.~This is a fine, attractive copy, with scarcely any wear at all.

        A letter to American teachers of history

      [press of J.H. Furst Co., Baltimore], Washington, [D.C.] 1910 - First edition, signed by Henry Adams at the end of the introductory letter; 12mo, pp. vi, 214, [2]; original green cloth, spine a bit sunned and with a small snag in the cloth (not effecting any lettering), otherwise very good. "In 1910 Adams published and scattered widely a little volume which he called A Letter to American Teachers of History. Its style was designedly colloquial and its tone provocative. Assuming the validity of the second law of thermodynamics, that there is a universal tendency to the dissipation of mechanical energy, he pointed out the dilemma of teachers of history if they postulated a progressive evolution in human history towards some state of perfection, or tried to exempt mind from the operation of the law. What did they propose to do about it? Human thought should be considered as a substance passing from one phase to another, through a series of critical points which are determined by attraction, acceleration, and volume. - the equivalents of pressure, temperature, and volume in mechanical physics. In short, the future historian who would interpret the movement called history would have to seek his education in the world of mathematical physics" (Allen Johnson, in DAB).

        Photo Album]: Early 20th Century New England College

      1910 - Oblong octavo. Measuring 5.5" x 8". Brown leather photo album with metal initials affixed to the front cover. A collection of 49 black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 3.5" x 5.5" and 2.5" x 4.25" affixed to stiff black paper without captions. A very good photo album with rubbing and tears, containing fine photographs. A photo album of early 20th Century snapshots taken in what appears to be New England by a woman referred to only as "E.D." The photos show winter scenes at an unnamed college with both men and women participating in winter sports such as sledding and hockey as well as the inevitable snow ball fight. The latter half of the album shows spring and summer scenes with boating and hikes. The New England landscape is shown here in photos of the campus, lakes, forests, and a small town. Also included are group photos of the students as well as candids of laughing girls and well-dressed people at a function on campus. An interesting look at co-ed life in New England just after the turn of the century.

        [PHOTO ALBUM OF SCENES IN WASHINGTON STATE, THE PHILIPPINES, JAPAN, HAWAII, AND ALASKA]

      [Various locations, 1910. 26pp. containing eighty-six photographs, nine colored photographs, and one photographic postcard. Two photos 8 x 6 inches, the remainder approximately 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. Oblong quarto. Original black cloth. Binding separating from text block; corners and extremities worn. Photos clean, many with manuscript captions. Good plus. Photo album of assembled snapshots showing various parts of Japan, the Philippines, Alaska, Hawaii, and Washington state. The two larger images are of Snoqualmie Falls in Washington, the first showing the park area and the second showing the falls itself. The images appear to be in no particular order, with scenes from all the various locales dispersed throughout the album. Other photographs show scenes in Manila, including the "oldest church," a "Spanish transport sunk by Dewey" in the Spanish-American War, Fort Malata, other churches, some water buffalo, and other rural scenes in the area. Images of Honolulu include a group of school children, the palace, views in a park, and some rural scenes, including a waterfall. Images of Japan are primarily from Nagasaki, Kobe, and Osaka. They include views of the harbors and ships, the dry dock at Nagasaki, the lower and upper falls at Kobe, Japanese peddlers aboard a ship, "temple 2000 years old" at Nagasaki, among others. Views of Alaska are primarily taken from off the coast, showing Dutch Harbor from several angles. The transport ship Oopack is featured in several photos; the Oopack was a British merchant vessel that was sunk by the Germans in 1918 off the coast of Malta. Several unlabeled photos at the rear of the volume show what are presumably local scenes from home, likely the Pacific Northwest. There are two farmers plowing a field behind a horse, bathers at the seashore, picnickers, and other group photos. The picture postcard is a baseball team group shot, and the colored images are views of Japan.

Dancers include all stars of the early Ballet Russes team: Pavlova, Karsavina, Nijinskiy. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Wonderland Postage-Stamp Case, complete with slipcase, Eight or Nine Wise-Words About Letter-Writing, all twelve unused stamps, and original outside envelope

      Emberlin and Son, Oxford 1910 - The stamp-case, slipcase, Letter-Writing booklet, stamps, and outside envelope are all in exceptionally nice shape. The definitive guide for dating Wonderland Postage-Stamp Cases is not Williams; it is "The Wonderful Case of Alice," by Geral Davis in Stamp Collecting, June 12, 1980. In his study, Davis identified multiple printing dates for each component of the package. In this example, the Roman numeral date (1889) on the stamp case is not in sans-serif. The "W" in "Wonderland" on the front cover of the slip-case looks like "two Linked 'V's." The advertisements in Letter-Writing are found on pages 36-39 and include "Feeding the Mind; the rear cover is blank. The second line of the paragraph on the outer envelope ends with the word "Pictorial," and the pricing is for one to four copies, eight copies, 15 copies, and every subsequent 15 copies. The twelve unused postage stamps (from 1/2d through 1s) are all from the King Edward VII series which was issued between 1902-1911. Carroll wrote, "'Necessity is the mother of invention'; and it was the constant worry of never having ready to hand, when one wanted it, a postage stamp of the right value for a letter or parcel, which drove me to invent my 'Wonderland Postage-Stamp Case' which contains twelve pockets, marked for stamps of various values and two coloured Pictorial Surprises from 'Alice in Wonderland.' It is accompanied with a small book Eight or Nine Wise Words About Letter Writing." The surprises that Carroll alluded to are related to the images on the stamp case and slip case. The slip case front cover shows Alice holding the Duchess's screaming baby, and the rear cover shows the Cheshire Cat. When the stamp case is withdrawn, the baby has turned into a pig, and only the cat's grin is visible. The stamp case first went on sale in 1890, and the image of the Duchess's Baby first appeared in 1890 in The Nursery Alice, so it would seem that Carroll intended for the stamp case to help promote his new book. While individual components of this set regularly appear at auctions, complete sets with all components are far less frequently encountered, especially in condition as nice as this grouping. Additionally, sets with all twelve unused, correct postage stamps (which have a Scott Catalogue value over $500) are almost never found. As of 2017, no complete sets with stamps are for sale in the trade, and OCLC shows none in institutional collections. The Rare Book Hub shows only one auction result in the past 88 years for a complete set with stamps, and it was exactly like this example (perhaps it was the same one); it sold for $750 in 2015.

        Grant of arms donated by Alfred Scott-Galty, Garter King-of Arms, to Christopher Furness, first Baron Furness of Grantley (23 April 1852 - 10 November 1912), British businessman and liberal politician.

      British Empire, London, d.d. 6 September 1910. Vellum charter (60 x 52 cm.), manuscript, calligraphic text. With 4 hand coloured coats-of-arms (three of the King and Scott-Galty) and one of Furness. With the signature and attached wax seal of Scott-Galty in brass crowned box. In a made to fit oblong wooden case, with metal closing mechanism and clothed with red linen, decorated in gold with GVR initials and crowns. Good condition. Furness was born in West Hartlepool, Co. Durham. He started his career as a buyer in Thomas Furness and Company, wholesale provision merchants, a firm owned by his older brother Thomas, and became a partner two years later. Stock for the business had to be brought in by ship, and Christopher found that it would be cheaper to use their own vessels, rather than hire other peoples. Consequently, on his initiative, the firm bought several steam ships from local shipbuilder William Gray & Company in 1877. In 1882 Christopher Furness and Company was formed and the business was split into two. Thomas kept the provision merchants, while Christopher took charge of the shipping fleet. After seven years as a partner in the shipbuilding firm of Edward Withy and Company, Furness merged it with his own company in 1891, to form Furness, Withy and Company. By a series of mergers, his firms become the main employers in Hartlepool, until they finally closed in the 1980s. Furness was also involved in politics, and was elected Member of Parliament for The Hartlepools at a by-election in 1891. He lost the seat in 1895, but was re-elected in 1900 general election, and served until his re-election in January 1910 was declared void after an electoral petition. He was knighted in 1895 and in 1910 he was raised to the peerage as the first Baron Furness, of Grantley in the West Riding of the County of Yorkshire. Moreover, in 1909 he was made an Honorary Freeman of West Hartlepool. In 1876 Furness married Jane Annette Suggit. They had one son, Marmaduke, born in 1883. Christopher Furness died on 10 November 1912, aged 60. He was succeeded in the barony by his son Marmaduke, who in 1918 was created Viscount Furness.With this charter certain alterations to the Furness family crest were officially accepted. Furness had applied for these changes. The family motto reads: I'll Defend. This charter was issued in the first year of the reign of George V. H100

        Small Country Houses of To-day

      Country Life London [1910]-1925 - 4to. 4 volumes, set. Original green cloth, gilt. Illustrated throughout with black and white photographs and drawings. All volumes are a bit bumped and worn. Volume 1 is rubbed with loss to cloth at tail of spine and with discolouration along lower and leading edges. Remains of small label removed from front paste down. Volumes 2 & 3 are slightly cocked and faded on spines. Neat ink ownership on front paste downs. Light foxing to end papers. Text clean in all volumes. Very good +. Originally published as one volume in 1910 and reprinted without any apparent changes in 1912. Since neither printing gives a date, it is impossible to say whether the present set starts with a first or second printing. The 'Second Series' expands the publication into three volumes and should be considered a new work, especially since it rearranges the original material which had been in alphabetical order of architect but is now grouped 'with reference to the traditions which inspired them'. This set includes 'Second Series' Volume 1 (Third Edition Revised, 1922), Volume 2 (Second Edition Revised, 1922) & Volume 3 (First Edition, by R. Randal Phillips, 1925).

        Intellectual World: Gallery of Contemporaries

      Adolf Ecksteins Publishing House, Berlin-Charlottenburg 1910 - Massive volume of photomechanical prints (18.5x12 in.) mostly of American and European scientists. It is thought that these volumes may have been put together for individual demand, so each is unique. Publication date is estimated ca. 1910-1911. No volume like this one is listed in any library. Eighty-eight individuals are illustrated and 86 have a biography of from 1 to 4 pages (in their native language). Most prints have the signature of the subject on the plate. Seventeen of the illustrated individuals received the Nobel Prize. There is one artist (Chase), one educator, one theologian, and one politician (Taft) included. Included are John J. Abel, Svaante August Arrhenius, Adolf von Baeyer, Charles Baskerville, Cyrus Fogg Brackett, Thomas Chrowder Chamberlin, Charles Frederick Chandler, William Merritt Chase, Wm. Bullock Clark, Virgil Coblentz, John Merle Coulter, Madam Marie Curie, Charles Loomis Dana, George Howard Darwin, Francis Darwin, Richard Elwood Dodge, Henry Herbert Donaldson, Paul Ehrilich, William Gilson Farlow, Henry Burchard Fine, Hermann Emil Fischer, Wilhelm Foerster, George Bell Frankforter, Archibald Geikie, Theodore Nicholar Gill, Chas.

Although the contents of this volume are near fine except for a minor water stain along the bottom of some of the plates, the binding is in very bad shape (see photo). Parts of the front cover are missing, the front hinge is cracked, and the spine is about three-quarters gone. Back cover is in better condition. Brass corner protectors still on front corners and brass "feet" are on back cover. Endpapers fine. International postage will be much higher than figure listed on ABE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
