        Photo Album]: New England Vacations 1910-1925

      Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire 1910 - Oblong small quarto measuring 7" x 11". String-tied black leather over paper boards with "photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 174 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs, as well as 15 cyanotypes. All measuring between 1.5" x 1.5" and 3" x 5" with some captions. Album has some tears at the spine fold and edgewear thus very good with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a New England woman which documents trips with her family and friends, almost exclusively women, throughout the region between 1912 and 1928. Many of the early photos show women posing in nice dresses and hats with fans in summer gardens. Following this are photos from a camping trip to Fort Pond in Acton, Massachusetts. These include cyanotype prints of women on horseback and one of a woman in men's clothes smoking a pipe. That same woman is seen again in men's clothes next to a woman in a dress and the print has been cut into the shape of a heart, she's also seen later pulling up a woman's skirt to show her ankles. There are a few interior shots from what appear to be parties and social gatherings of ladies and their families smiling for the camera. One group of photos shows a 1914 road trip to Edgartown and Lambert's Cover in Martha's Vineyard. They took a trip to Marblehead to go fishing and generally seemed to enjoy the outdoors with many of the pictures showing them climbing trees, hiking, and going to beaches. A later trip to York Beach shows a woman happily holding a large catch of fish and posing romantically on rocks gazing out to sea. One section shows a winter trip to Dalton, Massachusetts and Lincoln, New Hampshire which includes skiing, sledding, and many images of the group walking with snow shoes. The final pages of the album focus mainly on a trip to Mount Washington and the White Mountains in New Hampshire. These photos show more outdoor excursions with the ladies taking burros to the top of Mount Willard and posing on the top of Mount Washington. The snapshots show the beauty of the New England region from its mountains to its beaches as captured by a group of young women.A large collection of images depicting outdoorsy women enjoying a variety of activities from 1912 until 1928.

Earl Jefferson Hamilton was a major historian of Spanish economics and of John Law in particular; "his combination of economic and historical erudition is a model of cliometrics" (New Palgrave II, p. 588). This is Scott's best known and definitive work on British joint-stock companies. In the first volume he outlines the beginnings and the development of the joint-stock system until 1720; the second and third volumes present a detailed comparison of the accounts of the chief companies and the social, economic, foreign, and ethical factors which influenced their growth. Scott was the Adam Smith Professor of Political Economy at Glasgow University from 1915 until his death in 1940. He was an expert on the life and works of Smith, and his edition of Wealth of Nations was published in 1921. Scott served on a variety of government and editorial committees as an advisor on economics, and he was the President of both the Royal Philosophical Society and the Royal Economic Society during his lifetime.

        CAMERA ADVENTURES IN THE AFRICAN WILDS; Being an Account of a Four Month's Expedition in British East Africa, for the Purpose of Securing Photographs from Life of the Game

      London William Heinemann 1910 - First edition. Illustrated with a vast profusion of photographs and maps. 4to, publisher’s original full red cloth, gilt lettered on the spine, the upper cover gilt lettered and with a gilt pictorial vignette of a rhinoceros meandering through tall grass. In the rare original dustjacket. xviii, 231 pp. A fine copy in the very rare 1910 dustjacket, clean and unusually well preserved. There is some slight foxing to endpapers as would be typical. RARE FIRST EDITION IN THE ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET. Dugmore was one of the first African travelers to pursue photography in lieu of hunting with the gun. He found the study of animals through the lens to be far more useful and interesting than over the barrel of a gun. He felt that photographic hunting was not only a keen sport bu t in itself, provided the greatest possible opportunity for studying the life of wild animals, without closed seasons. The animal pictures throughout the book are direct photographic reproductions of the original photographs. There has been no retouching or faking of any description, and the great number of photographs were achieved mainly in the wilds of Kenya at the turn of the century.

        Art of this Century. Objects - Drawings - Photographs - Paintings - Sculpture - Collages 1910 to 1942. Edited by Peggy Guggenheim

      156 S. mit sehr zahlreichen schwarz/weiss Abbildungen. 4 Farbig bedruckter Originalleinenband (nach einer Zeichnung von Max Ernst). Erste und einzige Ausgabe. Eins 2500 Exemplaren. "The purpose of this book is to serve as a catalogue to the permanent collection exhibited at ART OF THIS CENTURY. As most things change unexpectedly during the course of their development this catalogue has, to my great surprise, become an anthology of non-realistic art covering the period of 1910 to 1942. Its limitations are due to the fact that it contains only reproductions of paintings and sculpture owned by me. I do hope that the next edition will be more complete and that I shall be able to acquire several other important works that represent phases of the evolution of this art."

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

      Oxford: Emberlin and Son, 1910. Unbound. Very good. 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.

The contents are in reasonably good order with spotting, marks and foxing throughout. All the plates are as called for, the map is loosely inserted and is a replacement from the smaller cloth bound edition. The frontispiece tissue guard is missing. The boards are distressed - the upper board is spotted, worn and very loose, the spine is missing (although the spine covering is partially present, albeit in poor condition) and the back board is detached and lacking its vellum. The ties are missing. A restoration project! Peary and his 5 man team claimed to have reached the North Pole on 6 April 1909, although whether he actually reached the North Pole has been disputed.

        Futurism : an archive

      A collection of key manifestos and other ephemeral publications from Futurism's most vital period, 1910-1913.   The Italian poet Marinetti published his Manifesto del Futurismo in 1909. Above all, his philosophy called for a rejection of the past and a celebration of change; Futurism was the promoter of urban modernity and the power of the machine, as well as the champion of anarchy and violence. Although Paris quickly became the physical centre of Futurist artistic activity, "Poesia" - the magazine which Marinetti had founded in Milan in 1905 - was the real nexus of Futurism and served as Marinetti's Futurist propaganda machine (the magazine even described itself as the "Moteur du Futurisme", or the "Engine of Futurism"). It was in Milan that most Futurist literature, including manifestos, notices and invitations to Futurist events in Italy and France, was printed and then disseminated, via the Italian postal service, across Europe. An interesting aspect of the present archive is that it includes two Futurist broadsides in their original "Poesia" postal envelopes, both addressed to the young Parisian poet Gaston Picard (1892-1962), co-editor of the short-lived magazine for experimental writing L'œil de veau (The Calf's eye), of which only four numbers were published in 1912. The archive is comprised of the following: Manifeste des Peintres Futuristes. Milano : "Poesia", 1910. Quarto, pp. 4, light central crease. One of the foundation manifestos of the Futurist movement, authored by the Italian artists Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà and Luigi Russolo (all based in Milan), and Giacomo Balla and Gino Severini (who had both moved to Paris from Rome in 1906). These artists were all strongly influenced by Symbolism. The manifesto, principally edited by Boccioni, was issued as a broadsheet on 11 April and was subsequently published in Cœmedia on 18 May. One of its declarations is that "... notre art est ivre de spontanéité et de puissance" ("... our art is drunk on spontaneity and power"). Les poètes et les peintres futuristes livrent bataille dans les grands théâtres italiens. Milano : Poligrafia italiana, [1910]. Quarto, pp. 4, light central crease. Circulated letter, edited by Marinetti, addressed to the press by the editors of "Poesia", containing information about the recent "happenings" organised by the Futurists in Trieste, Milan and Turin and the reactions they have provoked. Discours futuriste aux Vénitiens. Milano : "Poesia", [1910]. Quarto, pp. 4, light central crease. Manifesto by Marinetti which forms part of his continuing polemic against Venice, a city he regarded as chained to the past and blind to the future. It also foreshadows his affinities with Mussolini's Fascism: "... we prepare a great, strong, industrial, commercial, and military Venice that must defy Austrian insolence on the Adriatic, our great Italian lake." The Futurists used the term "passatism" to describe the adherence to and privileging of outmoded principles by other artists and thinkers. For Marinetti, the city of Venice was the embodiment of passatism in the geopolitical realm. Venise futuriste. Milano : F. T. Marinetti, [1910]. Printed broadside, 438 mm tall, folded as issued, pristine condition; in original orange printed envelope of Marinetti's "Poesia" magazine, sent from Milan and addressed to M. Gaston Picard, 11 Bd. St. Michel, Paris. Manifesto repudiating the classical art of Venice and announcing the arrival of the Futurists. Mafarka le Futuriste glorifié par Rachilde dans le Mercure de France. Milano : Poligrafia italiana, 1910. Printed broadside, 420 mm tall; folded as issued, fine condition; in original orange printed envelope of Marinetti's "Poesia" magazine, sent from Milan and addressed to M. Gaston Picard, 11 Bd. St. Michel, Paris (address crossed out and re-addressed to Ille-et-Vilaine). Reproduction of an article on Marinetti's chaotic, violent novel Mafarka le Futuriste, published in the Mercure de France on 1 July 1910, in which Rachilde (the pen name of the decadent Symbolist Marguerite Vallette-Eymery) wrote: "... toqués pour toqués, je préfère ceux qui m'amusent à ceux qui me rasent." Mafarka le Futuriste devant les Juges. Milano : Poligrafia italiana, [1910]. Quarto, pp. 4, light central crease. An announcement circulated by the editors of "Poesia", intended for publication in the press by sympathetic French colleagues, regarding the charges of obscenity against Marinetti which had arisen from the (subsequently suppressed) Italian translation of Mafarka le Futuriste. ... Grande Exposition du peintre futuriste Umberto Boccioni. Milano : Poligrafia italiana, [1910]. Printed broadside, 290 mm tall, folded as issued, fine condition. Exhibition flyer announcing an exhibition of works by Umberto Boccioni to be exhibited in Venice following its successful showing in Milan. Les peintres futuristes Italiens. Boccioni, Carrà, Russolo, Balla, Severini. Exposition du lundi 5 au samedi 24 fevrier 1912. Paris : Mm. Bernheim-Jeune & Cie, 1912. Duodecimo, printed orange wrappers, pp. [ii]; 32; [2]; pristine condition. Illustrated catalogue, which includes the text of Manifeste des Peintres Futuristes (1910). Galerie la Boëtie, Paris. Première exposition de sculpture futuriste du peintre et sculpteur futuriste Boccioni. Du 20 juin au 16 juillet 1913. Milano : A. Taveggia, 1913. Folding card, 120 x 145 mm (folded), printed in blue on apricot; pristine condition. The card is an invitation and "carte permanente" for the first exhibition of sculptures by significant Futurist artist Umberto Boccioni. It also advertises two "Conférences Contradictoires" to take place at Galerie la Boëtie, the first on 22 June by the poet Marinetti on the topic "l'imagination sans fils et les mots en liberté", and the second on 27 June by Boccioni on Futurist sculpture. L'art des bruits. Manifeste futuriste. Milano : Direction du Mouvement futuriste, 1913. Quarto, pp. 4, light central crease, short edge tears. Also known as L'arte dei rumori (The Art of Noise), this famous manifesto by Luigi Russolo is considered one of the most important documents in the history of music in the twentieth century (just ask Paul Morley). The influence of Russolo's Musique bruitiste was more far-reaching than that of any other branch of Futurism, perhaps because a painting in a frame is not as well suited to the expression of anarchy and violence in the same visceral way that sound is. It liberated musicians from the constraints of traditional styles, forms and instrumentation, and its concept is fundamental to the aesthetic of improvisation, Musique concrète, and electronic music. Premier concert de bruiteurs futuristes. Milano : A. Taveggia, S. Margherita, [1913]. Printed broadside, 390 mm tall, folded as issued, fine condition. Review of the first concert of Musique bruitiste. Featuring Futurist noise instruments, it took place in the Teatro Storchi, Modena, on 2 June 1913, under the direction of Luigi Russolo himself.

Henri de Régnier, né à Honfleur le 28 décembre 1864 et mort à Paris le 23 mai 1936, est un écrivain et poète français, proche du symbolisme. Dès son premier recueil, Poèmes anciens et romanesques, il acquit la notoriété. Ses nombreux volumes de poésie : Tel qu'en songe, Aréthuse, Les Jeux rustiques et divins, Les Médailles d'argile, La Cité des eaux, La Sandale ailée, Le Miroir des heures demeurent fidèles à l'idéal classique avec toujours plus de liberté dans la forme, entre Verlaine et Valéry, à la rencontre entre le Parnasse et le Symbolisme. Sa poésie révèle l'influence de Jean Moréas, Gustave Kahn et Stéphane Mallarmé, et surtout celle de son beau-père, José-Maria de Heredia. 1ère Edition Dédicacé par l'auteur [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An archive, as below

      Virginia artist Rudy Wendelin (1910-2000) joined the U.S. Forest Service in the early 1930s and helped launch the Smokey the Bear campaign in the late 1930s - now the lonest running public service campaign in U.S. history. He portrayed Smokey in literally hundreds of promotional pieces which encouraged conservation of natural resources, and forest fire prevention. This collection consists of pirmary sketches from Wendelin's personal collection. These are drafts retained by Wendelin himself -- working copies that show the creative process in action, in which the realistic cub bear drawings evolved into the human-like figure in blue jeans that the public came to know and love. There are 46 original pencil draft drawings in varying sizes ranging from approximately 6" x 8½" to 11" x 12" and featuring multiple sketches or panels of Smokey in different firefighting activites complete with captions. Some tell a story, comic strip style, while others are single images. Condition ranges from very good to near fine. Included are two pencil drawings of the actual Smokey cub, detailed and realistic -- quite possibly the first drawings of Smokey accomplished by Wendelin. There is also a heavy stock glossy 8" x 10" black and white photograph showing baby Smokey in 1950 being flown from Santa Few, New Mexico, where New Mexico Department of Game and Fish Ranger Ray Bell and his family were nursing him back to thealth, to the National Zoo in Washington, DC. There is also a remarkable 5-page autograph letter signed from Wendelin, 8½" x 11", on yellow ruled paper, dated March 15, 1997. He titles the first page "Reflection on visit of Tim Beatty, F[orest] S[ervice] - Symbols Director." Second and third pages are titled, "A lesson for every camper," and consist of the tale of a family camping and coming upon an old forest fire site. The fourth and fifth pages consist of forest fire ruminations, each paragraph beginning with "Only... green, healthy forests and woodlands can" - followed by various observations, concluding with "Smokey's message of forest fire prevention is never out of date." Accompanied by a 2-page original typescript by Wendelin, unsigned, titled "Reflections by Rudolph Wendelin for the Hot Food Teddy Convention, Capitan, NM - July,1999" and containing further provocative comments. An extraordinary letter, never published. There is also a second autograph letter signed from Wendelin, 1p, 6" x 8½", 17 March 1995 discussing various Smokey Bear projects and products. Mentions, "Enclosed is a copy of rough draft - comments & reflections on latest ... from what's happening, we are apparently not on the best standing with the S[mokey] B[ear] office." Enclosure is present, a 13-page detailed type commentary on issues and disputes regarding the licensing of Smokey Bear products. Accompanied by A Walk in the Woods, a mockup of a 1995 book that was apparently never published, and features text by Janet Doe and illustrations by Wendelin. 12" x 8½", ca. 16 pages. Some pages consist of color photocopies of Wendelin watercolors, with text portions blocked out, while several pages consist of original Wendelin pencil sketches of Smokey in wilderness setting and caoptions with text areas blocked out. Four pages at conclusion consist of original Wendelin pastel and ink drawings showing Smokey finding shelter for cubs and a deer during a forest fire - quite striking and beautiful. This mockup is accompanied by a thick sheaf of photocopies and color snapshots of these and other mockup leaves. Also included are a few commemorative items such as a First Day Cover honoring the 1984 issuance of the 20-cent "Smokey" stamp with ornamental cachet (signed by Wendelin) as well as FDCs bearing the "John Muir Conservationist" 5-cent stamp and "Forest Conservation" 4-cent stamp with "Happy Birthday, Smokey!" commemorative cachet at left, each signed by Wendelin. Also a color postcard, 6" x 4", of Wendelin's 1989 painting, "Dear Smokey..." showing Smokey retrieving fan mail from his mailbox as two playful cubs climb over the mailbox, signed by Wendelin at lower left, and "A tribute to Rudolph Wendelin: artist and guardian of Smokey Bear," a heavy card stock 8½" x 5½" ten-page booklet issued in 1995, signed and inscribed by Wendelin on front cover. An extraordinary archive chronicling the development of this iconic and beloved public relations character who became an important symbol in the environmental movement.

        A Circuit Rider's Wife

      Henry Altemus Company, Philadelphia 1910 - First edition. Illustrations by William H. Everett. Octavo. Original green cloth binding, with decorative gilt stamping. Mild edgewear, an attractive, very good or better copy. Inscribed and dated by Harris on the front flyleaf: "With compliments of the Author, Corra Harris. In the Valley, September 4th 1922." Corra May Harris (1869-1935) was, for a time, the most widely known woman from the state of Georgia. Her literary reputation during her life, and her legacy since, rest on this novel. Drawing heavily on her troubled marriage to Methodist minister and educator Lundy Howard Harris, it tells of the challenges, hardships, and mostly intangible rewards of itinerant country preaching in the Northern Georgia mountains. Harris wrote more than two dozen books and published over 200 articles and short stories, and well over a thousand book reviews. Although she became famous for her fiction, she earned a reputation for reactionary conservatism with a notorious nationally published piece defending the lynching of Thomas Wilkes, alias Sam Hose, near Newnan, Georgia in 1899 and her subsequent essays on Southern identity. She was not so easily categorized though, her 1915 novel *The Co-Citizens* was seen by various critics as both showing support and opposition to woman suffrage! Later, Harris was the first women war correspondent to go abroad in World War I. This novel was the basis for the 1951 film *I'd Climb the Highest Mountain* written and produced by Georgia native Lamar Trotti and starred Susan Hayward and William Lundigan. This title was reprinted by the University of Georgia in 1998, but the first edition is very uncommon, especially signed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A Gentleman Of Leisure

      Alston Rivers, London 1910 - 8vo, pp. 247. 3 pp. catalogue bound in at rear. Original blue boards, lettered in gilt to front panel and spine. Slightly cocked, blank bookplate and small price stamp to front pastedown. Some wear to spine ends and edges, corners a little bumped. Lacking the dustwrapper. First UK edition, published six months earlier in the US under the title The Intrusion Of Jimmy. Famously, Wodehouse dedicated his book The Heart Of A Goof [1926] to his beloved stepdaughter Leonora with the words: 'To my daughter Leonora without whose never-failing sympathy and encouragement this book would have been finished in half the time.' Less famously, Wodehouse had dedicated this book to his friend Herbert Westbrook sixteen years previously, using exactly the same joke. An unusually nice copy, the gilt on the spine still bright.

        [ZEPPELIN] Das lenkbare Luftschiff : ein aktuelles Gesellschaft-Spiel

      [Berlin : Sala, c. 1910]. Box of thick card, 410 x 310 x 35 mm, the lid with chromolithographed illustration of an airship and game title in German; containing a chromolithographed playing board, 580 x 790 mm, folding to 290 x 395 mm; 6 painted pewter playing pieces in the form of airships, each approximately 50 x 55 mm, the bases mounted into slits on lithographed card for safe storage, 210 x 150 mm; 6 numbered playing cards, each 67 x 43 mm and denoting the airship owned by each player; 2 dice, one numbered 1 to 6, the other with 6 differently coloured faces, with original gauze bag; 95 circular pieces of embossed card (play money representing coins of various denominations), with original cotton pouch; printed leaflet in Dutch (De bestuurbare Luchtballon), 4 pages folding to 200 x 90 mm; on a section of the back of the playing board a sheet from a 1970s German game has been laid down at some point, but this is not visible when the board is opened, nor when it is folded; otherwise, the game is original, complete and in fine condition. This beautiful children's game of commercial aviation in the age of the early Zeppelin airships was produced in Germany by the famous firm of Sala around 1910. It is a roll-and-move race game that features various hazards and disasters, including the most notorious one for the Zeppelins - fire. A number of different language versions, including Dutch, English, Swedish and Hungarian, are known. Rules leaflets would have been interchangeable for each edition: the Dutch rules leaflet that accompanies the present example is of the period, and was in all likelihood used by the original Dutch owner of the game, even though the box and playing board are printed in German.
