        [Photo Album]: Garden Island, Sydney. The Base of the Royal Australian Navy. 1910-1914

      Sydney: , 1910-1914. Sydney. 1910-1914. Folio. Gray and blue cloth boards with "Sunny Memories" on the front board, and 12 stiff card leaves. 125 gelatin silver images mostly approximately 3" x 4", mounted within rectangular or oval frames in the book. All photos with captions or titles on the mounts. A faint spot on the front board, but a very good or better internally clean album with bright about fine images.A very interesting photo album from the family of a high ranking Australian naval officer who resided at Garden Island, base of the Royal Australian Navy in Sydney (now a restricted area). The images include views of Garden Island: streets, the embankment with HMS Pegasus, Signal Hill on the Coronation Day, the interior of the island church, "Idol from Mallo Kollo Island" (Malakula, Vanuatu), "the tree planted by H.M. The King," "swimming bath," and others. Additionally there are a series of views depicting the Garden Island Tennis Club which is considered to be Australia's first lawn tennis court (built in 1880), showing the court itself and tennis court pavilion, group portraits of players shown during games or afterwards, posing with rackets.The album's owner or compiler (here designated as "H.C.") is in several photos, posing in naval uniform in his garden, on board HMS Encounter and on board a naval ship at the beginning of WWI (the last photo is dated November 1914). There are also portraits of (probably) his wife "Ad" and other naval officers and sailors, some designated by last names (Gosling, Baker, S.P.O. Trevin); views of their house and garden on Garden Island (the exterior, interiors of the drawing room and office, images of the front and kitchen gardens). Six interesting group portraits showing "Japanese officers at Garden Island" posing in white uniforms with "Ad" and another lady at the tennis club.Five photos depict the "Tresco" mansion -- the official residence of the Naval Officer-in-Command at Garden Island (the exterior and interiors, "swimming bath", a view of the Sydney harbor from Tresco). Three photos show the Bristol biplane in Sydney with the following commentary: "one of two sent arrived Dec. 1910, flew Perth, then Melbourne, then Sydney, c. Feb. 1911." There are also images of numerous ships in Sydney harbor (HMS Fantome, HMS Cambrian, HMS Powerful, HMS Encounter, P&O S.S. Moldavia, HMS Pioneer et al.), Sydney botanical gardens, a series of photos from a trip to the Blue Mountains (Grand Canyon, Grose Valley, Kanimbla Valley, Hydro Majestic Hotel in Medlow Bath, and others). Several photos reveal the album compiler's keenness for golf (images of the Blackheath golf links, the Royal Melbourne golf club and the Royal Sydney Gold club). Overall a very interesting illustration of the social life of Australian naval officers on Garden Island on the threshold of the First World War."Garden Island, located in Sydney Harbour to the east of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay, has been associated with the defence of Sydney and eventually Australia, since the first fleet of convicts arrived in 1788. Garden Island is thus named because it was here that the crew of HMS Sirius of the First Fleet planted a vegetable garden in late January 1788. Garden Island has had connections with the Navy since the early days of the colony. As well as a garden, it housed a gun emplacement which guarded the passageway between Farm Cove and Pinchgut (Fort Denison) until the construction of Fort Macquarie on Bennelong Point. A similar gun pit was built on Gov. Macquarie's Point, but this was removed after Fort Macquarie was built and no trace of it remains today. In 1811 Gov. Macquarie declared Garden Island a civilian establishment and thus it stayed until 1856 when it was returned to the Royal Navy for use as a base. The base grew in a ramshackle manner with new buildings and facilities being added progressively over the next century. Today it is a restricted area and houses the Fleet Base of the Royal Australian Navy and the Garden Island Dockyard" (Garden Island/sydneyforeveryone.com.au).A fascinating and historically significant album. .

Landscape format 11'' x 15''. Contains 32 pages of text with 27 plates of exploded monochrome illustrations with detailed part numbers, and where necessary, further description. Not in the best of condition although we have had it professionally and sympathetically repaired.

John Fowler was an agricultural engineer and inventor who was born in Wiltshire. He worked on the mechanization of agriculture and was credited with the invention of steam driven ploughing engines. He died 4 December 1864, following a hunting accident. After his death, John Fowler & Co., was then continued by Robert Fowler and Robert Eddison. In 1886 the limited company of John Fowler & Co., (Leeds) Ltd., was formed. It merged with Marshall, Sons & Co., Ltd., of Gainsborough in 1947 to form Marshall-Fowler Ltd. Although not well known for them, Fowler also built a small number (117 has been claimed) of steam wagons. These were vertical-boilered, with an unusual single-crank cross-compound vee-twin engine. At least one was preserved, as part of the Tom Varley collection. During the Second World War, the Hunslet factory also produced Matilda, Cromwell, and Centaur tanks for the Army. Production finally ceased in early 1974. Member of the P.B.F.A.

        Bilderbuch: Der Kampf mit dem Drachen

      - Original fairy tale with disarming naive watercolors that thoroughly illustrate the tale. N.d., circa 1910. Oblong 8vo. 19 by 28.5 cm. 11 leaves of heavy card, each with a mounted watercolor illustration on the verso, and mounted text page, in verse surrounded by Jugenstil line decorations, on the facing rectos. The watercolors all cover every inch of their boards, and this imparts a rich lushness seldom encountered in such juvenile efforts. The narrative is about a dwarf named Pumpel who lives in a mushroom hut. Because he is bored, he decides to venture out into the world on a snail-driven cart. Hungry and thirsty, he comes upon an inn run by a landlady frog Unke. At dinner, in the company of other frogs, he hears the tale of an evil dragon who has imprisoned for years a beautiful flower fairy. It is then resolved that they will set out to fight the monster and liberate the fairy. The bees sting the monster and the frogs splash water on him until he finally retreats. The princess Pumpelione wakes up, she and Pumpel are wed, and they live happily ever after. Edges and corners have wear. The binding is in a painted style prevalent around 1920. Occasional staining on text pages. - [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hunting Trips in Northern Rhodesia - With Accounts of Sport and Travel in Nyasaland and Portuguese East Africa, and also Notes on the Game Animals and Their Distribution

      Horace Cox, London 1910 - 1910. First edition. xii, 118pp., a 23 page publisher's catalogue, 78 black and white illustrations on plates and 18 tailpieces. In this scarce book the author gives an account of his experiences with the big game of Northern Rhodesia (South Central Africa). Although it is mainly about shooting in that country, he has also included a few chapters on sport and travel in Nyasaland and Portuguese East Africa. He shows what game is to be found in the forests, how to follow up and secure it, the equipment necessary, and estimates of the cost. The reduced drawings of sport, and the numerous photographic illustrations, are some of the finest produced of African game. The 18 chapters include A Hunting Trip to Lake Chiuta; Hippo in the Shire River; A Tough Rhino; A Boat Voyage on the Zambesi; Remarks on the African Elephant and its Tusks; Hunting the Kudu and Sable; Sport on the Rukusi Stream; Some Native Traits. The book is bound in the original green cloth covered boards with gold titling on the spine and gold titling with a paper onlay showing a bush scene on the front board. This is a very good copy of a scarce title, with some shelf wear and a little light soiling on the boards. The top corners and bottom rear corner and bottom of the spine are bumped. There is also bumping to the top of the spine which has caused a little damage to the cloth. The contents are tight and clean with some browning and faint foxing to the half-title page and page of advertisements at the end of the book. There is a faint inscription dated 1931 on the front fixed endpaper. The top and fore edges of the text block have a little scattered foxing. PLEASE NOTE: This is a heavyish book and will be posted by an insured and tracked and/or signed for service, and so extra postage may be needed for shipping to non-UK customers.

        [Photo Album]: Mediterranean Boat Journey and Archeological Dig

      Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Italy. 1910. Oblong folio. Black leather over paper boards with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front cover, measuring 11" x 13". An assortment of 255 sepia toned photographs affixed to stiff black paper measuring approximately 3" x 5" to 6" x 8". A few photographs are lacking and there are tears on the spine thus very good with near fine photographs.Assembled collection of photographs chronicling the travels of a group of people around Europe and its surrounding areas before arriving at an archeological dig in Turkey during 1910 led by Princeton University professor, Howard Crosby Butler. The beginning of the album shows crew members posing about the boat, in and out of uniform, including serving girls, the chef, the captain, and various officers. They stopped at numerous Mediterranean ports beginning with Gibraltar, its famous limestone mass seen here from the boat deck. The company toured Egypt on camel back with photos of the sphinx and the great pyramids seen here as well as the ancient structures of Greece's Parthenon and the Roman Coliseum.The second half of the album documents the company aiding in an archeological dig in Turkey with Turkish locals as well as American men in fedoras or pith helmets overseeing the work and laying down rails to move equipment. One photo of a man on a rock waving his helmet above his head is almost certainly Princeton University archeologist, Howard Crosby Butler. Butler was hired by the Turkish government to aid in the find at ancient Sardis, one of the most important cities of the Persian Empire. Photos of two pillars on a hillside reveal that one of the sights is the unearthing of the Temple of Artemis which began in 1910 and was the first large scale dig at the sight. "The site of the Sardis civilization--older than the Syrian--were much deeper than previous digs. Butler was able to successfully excavate these ruins between 1910 and 1922." The photos show individual portraits of the men on the dig posing with equipment, local children and animals, and numerous shots of the dig sight. A wonderful album depicting turn of the century Mediterranean discovery. .

        5 photographic lantern slides of Mecca and Medina (silver gelatin glass positives), taken in the years 1880 to 1889].

      Stuttgart, Lichtbilderverlag Theodor Benzinger, [ca. 1910]. - 5 glass positive lantern slides (85 × 100 mm), each with a black paper mask, paper tape around the edges, a letterpress slip at the foot giving the publisher's name and city, and a slip at the head with the manuscript title. Stored in a contemporary purpose-made wooden box with brass fittings, with the word "Mekka" on the top of the hinged lid. Five of the earliest and best photographs of Mecca and Medina, beautifully preserved as silver gelatin glass plates, including the first photograph of the Ka'ba in Mecca's Masjid al-Haram (Great Mosque). Two of the photographs were taken by the first person to photograph Mecca and Medina, the Egyptian Colonel Muhammad Sadiq Bey (1832-1902), who made them in 1880 for the Ottoman Sultan Abdülhamid II. The others were taken by the first European to photograph Mecca, Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje, and Al-Sayyid 'Abd al-Ghaffâr, who worked closely with him. Snouck Hurgronje (1857-1936), one of the greatest pioneering Dutch Arabists, converted to Islam and lived in Mecca from January to about July 1885. The photographs by these three men are best known and most frequently reproduced from the published collotype facsimiles, while the rare surviving early albumen prints are usually faded or otherwise in bad condition. The present five plates, sold as lantern slides for magic lantern presentations, are therefore of the greatest importance as well-preserved high quality specimens of these famous photographs, providing the best early images of the mosques of Mecca and Medina. - All five slides are in very good condition, with only a bit of dust and the occasional smudge on the glass. They show: 1) The Masjid al-Haram in Mecca (the Great Mosque); 2) a closer view of the Ka'ba in Mecca; 3) the portrait of an unidentified Mu'ezzin in Mecca; 4) a portrait of an unidentified East Indian pilgrim; 5) the al-Masjid an-Nabawi in Medina (the Prophet's Mosque). Cf. D. v.d. Wal, Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje (2011); J. J. Witkam, new introduction to the 2007 reprint of the 1931 English translation of Hurgronje, Mekka.

        Typed Sir Wilfrid Laurier "in office" 1910 letter signed

      Ottawa, 1910. 1st Edition. No binding. 8 x 10-1/4 inches, was folded not flat. Typed Letter Signed, dated Ottawa, 9th June, 1910, on stationery of the Prime Minister's office, addressed to W. F. Alloway, Winnipeg. 6 lines on one sheet. Minor 3/8 inch open tear in black border fold long open separations, W in Wilfred signature smudged, otherwise in near fine condition. Response letter to Alloway regarding two senior Canadian Pacific Railway management executives very positive. Laurier was a major supporter of Railway expansion in Canada. In the early 1900s, Laurier's government financed a second transcontinental railway, whose construction was entrusted to Grand Trunk Pacific. Laurier would later finance a third transcontinental line built by Canadian Northern Railway, in direct competition with Grand Trunk Pacific. Laurier writes: "My dear Alloway,*- / Many thanks for your kind letter. Give my thanks to / Mr. Whyte**. I have nothing that I could ask him; Sir Thomas Shaughnessy*** has / been kindness itself and I cannot wish anything more. // Please remember me to Mrs. Alloway and believe me, / Yours very sincerely, / Wilfrid Laurier." Wilfrid Laurier (1841-1919) was Canada's eighth and first French Prime Minister, holding office 1896-1911. Laurier was born in St. Lin, Quebec. He received a law degree from McGill University in 1864, and practiced law in Montreal and Arthabaskville from 1864-1896. Laurier was elected for the first time in 1871 to the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Quebec, and was re-elected in 1874, this time to the House of Commons, where he would spend the rest of his career, nearly 45 years (1874-1919) stands as a record in Canadian politics. In a 2010 poll of 1,000 Canadians, weekly news magazine Maclean's asked who Canada's greatest Prime-Minister was. More than 80% of respondents replied "Wilfrid Laurier". *William Forbes Alloway, 1852-1920, businessman, banker, politician, and philanthropist; one of the richest men in Canada; **Sir William Whyte, 1843-1914, Superintendent Central Division of the Canadian Pacific Railway; ***Thomas George Shaughnessy, 1853-1923, 1st Baron Shaughnessy, President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, 1899-1918.

Maroon half morocco gilt to style, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt First American edition, deluxe edition limited to 50 copies signed by the author, this set numbered 18. A total of 125 copies of this deluxe edition were produced: 50 for sale in the United States, and 75 for sale in the British Empire. The deluxe edition of this classic work is preferred over the regular edition for a number of reasons. The first and most obvious is the presence of a second volume including the 33 specimens of actual flies, tied by Hardy Brothers and/or C. Farlow's according to the author's very specific instructions, with careful attention paid to the colour and form of each fly. The second reason is the fact that the text is printed on fine quality Whatman laid paper that is also considerably larger than the paper used in the regular edition. Thirdly the plates, particularly those on india paper, are of a much higher quality that those in the regular edition. This work was aimed quite specifically at those who fished the chalk streams of southern England, but its central message, that the artificial flies should match their living counterparts as closely as possible, was understood to be applicable around the world. This dictum, together with the author's skills in conveying the joys and tribulations of fishing have combined to produce a work that is much in demand today. Litchfield 73.

        REWARDS AND FAIRIES in the scarce dustwrapper

      Garden City: Doubleday , Page & Co.. Near Fine in Very Good- dust jacket. 1910. First American Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. xiv & 344 pages; Clean and tight in the publisher's green cloth binding in original dustjacket. This is the familiar Doubleday American trade binding design for titles written by the popular Rudyard Kipling, with bold lettering in gilt on the front cover and spine, and a pair of stylized images of a sailboat impressed in black -- large on the front cover and a smaller device on the spine. What is much less familiar is the presence of the rare dust jacket on this copy. This jacket consists of a thin, buff paper stock and has lettering and a pictorial device centered on the front panel printed in dark green. We share the disdain which experienced booksellers have for the use of the phrase "good for its age." This is a formula applied all too frequently by the ill-informed or lazy. In this case, the former can be forgiven to some extent, as dust jackets over one hundred years old are very rare, indeed. As luck would have it, this example is genuinely very good for any age, and deserves careful description. The front panel states the title and author, with a half-tone pictorial device at the panel's center (this is a smaller version of the final illustration, which faces p. 298 in the text). Under this pictorial device is a short description, making it clear that this volume represents the return of the popular "Puck of Pook's Hill" -- under this is the original price: "Illustrated, 1.50." The spine repeats the texts (minus the description of contents) and price from the front panel, with a smaller circular pictorial device, and with Doubleday, Page & Co.'s imprint at the foot. The front flap has a list of the 21 titles available in "The Pocket Kipling" -- ("Rich, red leather" binidings, 1.50 plus 7 cents postage, each). The rear flap has a notice of the 1910 special edition of Kipling's "Collected Poems" (with illustrations by W. Heath Robinson -- 3.50 - 10 in leather). The rear flap has ads for three "New Publications" from Doubleday, Page ["The Motor Maid" by C. N. and A. M. Williamson; "The Power and the Glory" by Grace MacGowan Cooke; and "Queen Sheba's Ring" by H. Rider Haggard]. This rare and entirely un-restored dust jacket is integral and clean, but has chipping with minor losses at the spine ends (especially at the top, where the shallow losses continue across the top edge of the front panel and top corner, but this very narrow band of loss never touches the double rules which frame the front panel); minor wear and a couple of closed tears continue at the other edges, with some minor rubbing at the hinges of the spine, particularly the rear hinge, which terminates at the bottom with a separation at the final inch and a half. The spine and the edges show minor toning. The volume itself is remarkable -- clean and crisp stamping in gilt and black, and original lustre to the ribbed cloth, and unworn tight corners and hinges. The endpapers are clean and unmarked and the hinges are tight and unworn. There is a tiny flake of white at the very bottom edge of the spine; and the original owner enclosed a newspaper clipping with the text of Kipling's poem "Tommy" which has browned, and left a small rectangle of toning to the second page of the "Contents" and the facing leaf listing the "Illustrations" -- pp. x & [xi} -- the clipping has been retained, but is now in an archival mylar sleeve. There are four full-page illustrations by Frank Craig -- (the same illustrations appear in the 1910 London edition from Macmillan). Kipling was awarded the first Nobel Prize issued to a writer of English literature in 1907. 'Rewards and Fairies' consists of a series of short stories set in historical times with a linking contemporary narrative. Dan and Una are two children, living in the Weald of Sussex in the area of Kipling's own home Bateman's. They have encountered Puck and he magically conjures up real and fictional individuals from Sussex's past to tell the children some aspect of its history and prehistory, though the episodes, in keeping with their elements of fantasy, are not always historically accurate. There is a mixture of verse throughout, notably including the first publication of the poem "If—" ["If you can keep your head when all about you / are losing theirs..."] -- This first appearance occurs at the end of "Brother Square Toes" chapter of the book -- see pp. 181-2. "If" became one of the best known and loved poems in the English language, even its author was stunned by its life following this 1910 publication. Kipling's commentary on the response to it in his 1937 autobiography: "Among the verses in 'Rewards' was one set called `If--', which escaped from the book, and for a while ran about the world. They were drawn from [ Leander Starr] Jameson's character, and contained counsels of perfection most easy to give. Once started, the mechanization of the age made them snowball themselves in a way that startled me. Schools, and places where they teach, took them for the suffering Young - which did me no good with the Young when I met them later. (`Why did you write that stuff? I've had to write it out twice as an impot.').They were printed as cards to hang up in offices and bedrooms; illuminated text-wise and anthologized to weariness. Twenty-seven of the Nations of the Earth translated them into their seven-and-twenty tongues, and printed them on every sort of fabric." (Something of Myself page 146). Competitors at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships pass under the third and fourth lines of the second stanza of the poem: “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster / and treat those two impostors just the same” -- the quote is inscribed on the wall of the players' entrance to the Centre Court at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. There is a bittersweet note to the afterlife of "If--" Kipling's son John, to whom the text is addressed as advice, was killed in action a few years later in the first World War John Kipling had poor eyesight and had failed examinations to enlist in the British Navy and then, the Army. He was only offered a place in the "Irish Guards" as a favor to his famous father. He was last seen stumbling through the mud blindly, screaming in agony after an exploding shell ripped his face apart at the Battle of Loos in September 1915 at age 18. No remains were found until 1982 (and this identification remains the subject of controversy). "If you can fill the unforgiving minute / With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, / Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, / And—which is more—you'll be a Man, my son!" Copies of the 1910 'Rewards and Fairies' in dust jacket are not entirely unknown. A couple of years ago, a London bookselling firm offered a copy of the British first edition (Macmillan and Co., 1910). It was quite expensive (many times our price) and is now marked as "sold" on their webpages. .

      London: William Heinemann, 1910-1911.. SIGNED LIMITED EDITIONS. In two volumes. Quarto, pp.[2] x, 159 [3]; pp.[2] x, 182 [4]. Copies 889 and 72 respectively of 1150 copies produced of each book, SIGNED by the artist in black ink to limitation page. With 34 high quality chromolithographic plates to vol. I, and 30 to vol.

In recent cream full vegetable parchment with gilt titles to spines and yellow ribbon ties. Top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Very good indeed, in an attractive recent binding. A superb example of Rackham's dramatic interpretation of Wagner's libretti, his only work for adults. London-born Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) studied drawing at evening classes at Lambeth School of Art (from 1884) for 7 years whilst working full-time in insurance. He began his career using the then new half-tone process, his fame spreading upon publication of his illustrated Grimm's Fairy Tales in 1909. In 1905 his illustrated Rip van Winkle introduced him to the US public; one year later Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens was published. Rackham was made a full member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1908, and was honoured abroad, with gold medals from Milan (1906) and Barcelona (1911).
