Shaw wrote Trails in Shadow Land as a chronicle of Foster's most intriguing cases.Nicholas B. Harris,1882-1943, investigative reporter turned police detective, is considered a legend within the private investigation world. Originally a reporter for the LA Times he was asked to join the Los Angeles County Police Department by the then captain, A.J. Bradish. In 1906 he founded Nick Harris Detectives followed shortly thereafter by the Nick Harris Professional Detective School. His exploits were so popular that from 1934 to 1940 a radio program produced stories based on his cases sometimes referred to as Nick Harris Detective or Why Crime Doesn't Pay, which was as popular as Sherlock Holmes at the time. .

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1910. First edition of Theodore Roosevelt's classic work. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. In near fine condition with light rubbing and wear to the extremities. "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).

        Stollwerck Chocolade - Gustav Tischer.

      Serie van 6 ontwerpen voor Stollwerck?s Chocolade plaatjes ca. 1910. Aquarel en gouache op velijnpapier door Gustav Tischer, gemonogrammeerd. Afmetingen elk ca. 6,5 x 13,5. Als set in 1 lijst.Rond de wisseling van de 19e naar de 20e eeuw was chocolade een lekkernij voor de gegoede orde die alleen op bijzondere gelegenheden werd genoten. In 1912 kostte 1 reep zoveel als 20 broodjes.In de jaren 90 van de 19e eeuw begon Stollwerck bij zijn chocoladerepen plaatjes toe te voegen. Oorspronkelijk werden de plaatjes verzameld in sigarendoosjes, maar later ontstond het idee net als bij postzegels de plaatjes in albums op te bergen. De repen werden veelal verkocht via chocolade automaten. Binnen een paar jaar na de invoering van de verzamelplaatjes steeg de omzet met 40 procent. Stollwerck hechtte grote waarde aan de vormgeving van de series en reserveerde 100.000 mark om bekende kunstenaars voor het ontwerp ervan aan te trekken, dat lukte bij Max Liebermann, Elli Hirsch en ook Gustav Tischer.De onderwepen reflecteerden de laatste stand van de wetenschap van die tijd en ze droegen bij aan de vorming van de bevolking. De plaatjes werden graag op scholen ingezet omdat schoolboeken nauwelijks kleurrijk beeldmateriaal bevatten.De ontwikkeling van de verzamelplaatjes verliep in Europa vrijwel tegelijkertijd. In Nederland begint Verkade in 1903 met de productie van de bij ons bekende plaatjes.Bij de aanvang van de eerste wereldoorlog zette Stollwerck de productie van de verzamelplaatjes stop. Pas in 1930 verschenen er weer een paar series, maar zonder groot succes.Prijs: ?1.250,- (incl. lijst, incl. 21% BTW).

        Charles & Cie. Fourrures Pelleteries. 6, Avenue de la Toison-D'Or Bruxelles

      Brussels. Paper folder. Very Good Plus. N.d., circa 1910. 36 by 22 cm. Folio of eight pochoir illustrations, all depicting elegantly appointed women decked in furs. The women are all on the move or active in some way -- these are illustrations meant to show how the garments work in their lifestyle. There is nothing static about the pictures. They bring to mind the breezy boulevard depictions of artists such as Sem, with the difference that these portraits aren't caricatures. The fashions hark from a period in which beauty and elegance was the hallmark of high fashion while some of the shackles imposed by fashion were being loosened -- women could go out in the world on their own to a degree seldom the case a generation earlier. Jean Droit was a French and Belgian artist and writer who excelled at book illustration. He is better known for his depictions of wartime and warfare, and he incidentally played an instrumental role in the scouting movement. This collection, produced early in his prolific career, is scarce -- we have been able to locate no other copies -- and each of the plates would be very appealing matted, framed and hung on a wall.

        John Martin's Letters to You - No. 9 and 10

      New York: John Martin's House. 1910 and 1911. Two early Boy Scout--related letters from the Letters from John Martin series of subscription correspondence for boys. Octavos. Each 8pp. Stapled self-wrappers. Fine. Morgan Shepard, a contributor to St. Nicholas, began producing letters of illustrated tales for children in 1908 that he would personalize to each subscriber. Each letter was hand-personalized to subscribers and describes some fantastic journey or adventure involving explorers, hunters, knights, or animals, typically illustrated throughout. These issues, letters number nine (1910) and 10 (1911), are particularly notable because each is dedicated to the then nascent Boy Scouts of America with several drawings of Scouts in uniforms, their emblem, and the Boy Scout sign, as well as the Boy Scout Oath, ways to tie various types of knots, identify animal tracks, and with a facsimile copy of the letter sent to John Martin by Ernest Seton, the first Chief Scout of the Boy Scouts, in the founding year of the organization. OCLC locates no copies of this subscribers' letter series. .
