        Perseus and Danae

      1911. Watercolor on paper, signed ÒW. Russell Flint. 1911Ó (lower right). 10-3/4 x 8-3/4 in. Matted and framed. Fine Flint Frontispiece: "Perseus and Dana'" Beautiful watercolor with mythological content by Sir William Russell Flint (1880-1969) who was a member, and later president, of the Royal Academy; his exceptional draughtsmanship, coupled with a superb sense of color and highly imaginative powers of composition, made him one of the finest and most popular artists and illustrators of the twentieth century. This fine Flint drawing was used as the frontispiece for Charles Kingsley's The Heroes, or Greek Fairy Tales for My Children, the text of which is at p. 4: ÒNow it came to pass that in time Danae bore a son: so beautiful a babe that any but King Acrisius (Danae's father) would have pity on it. But he had no pity; for he took Danae and her babe (Perseus) down to the seashore, and put them into a great chest and thrust them out to sea, for the winds and the waves to carry them whithersoever they wouldÓ.

        The Secret Garden

      London: William Heinemann,, 1911. Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark green morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt with onlaid morocco flower pieces, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, pictorial block to front board gilt with onlaid morocco floral pieces, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, floral endpapers, gilt edges. With 8 colour illustrations by Charles Robinson. A couple of minor blemishes, an excellent copy. First edition, first impression. The Secret Garden was first serialized, starting in autumn 1910, in The American Magazine, a publication aimed at adults. The entire book was first published in the summer of 1911 by Frederick A. Stokes in New York and simultaneously by Heinemann in London. The American edition was illustrated by M. B. Kork, whereas the English edition has illustrations by the prolific illustrator Charles Robinson, whose younger brothers Thomas Heath Robinson and William Heath Robinson also became illustrators. Born in Manchester, England, Burnett moved several times back and forth between England and America, before adopting US citizenship in 1905. The novel was mainly written in Buile Hill Park while visiting Manchester in 1904, but published while she was living in Plandome Manor, New York. During her lifetime her rags-to-riches story Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886) was a publishing sensation, although over the years The Secret Garden has retained the popularity that Little Lord Fauntleroy has lost.

        Signed Manuscript Documents - Moreni Oil Ventures - Investment Contracts of British Investors with Romanian Engineer & Inventor Richard Von Sickle

      London 1911 - London, 24 February, 1911. Three (3) Signed Manuscript Documents defining contractual agreements between Romanian engineer and inventor Richard van Sickle of Campina, and the Anglo-Moreni Oil Syndicate Limited, for gaining lucrative investments in the rich Moreni oil fields. An unusual bilingual document, made in both French and English, in adjacent columns. Folio double leafs, 8 pages combined, on the letterhead of public notaries John Venn & Sonns, watermarked paper made by W. King of Alton Mill in Hampshire, measuring approximately 21 x 34 cm. Each with the signature and stamp of the Consulate General of Romania, the signature of his vice-consul, the embossed stamp of the company, original signatures of 2 directors and the secretary, and a revenue stamp. Very good condition. Uncommon original manuscript documentation of British activity in the Romanian oil industry, these pertain specifically to the procurement of deeds and contracts in Moreni, some 100 km north-west of Bucharest, where in the spring of 1910 an extremely rich well had been struck, thus drawing foreign attention. Resident of Campina, then a center for oil extraction and processing, Mr. Richard van Sickle, is singularly being entrusted with a great deal of authority over the company's affairs. Each document is signed in the original by the company's directors, Harry Seymour Foster and Bertram Egerton Foster, as well as the secretary, Edward William Fellgate of Kent. Of the three documents, one appoints Mr. Sickle the title of General Representative of the Company "who shall represent [the company]. under the commercial code in respect of all the acts that the company shall do in Roumania." Another puts him in charge of all deeds, and further elects him to make application to the Roumanian government for a satellite office in their kingdom. In the third agreement, the Board of Directors transfers to Sickle all rights over "contracts of concession and lease, which were transcribed in the Special Register of the Tribunal, Prahova, Romania," the latter of which are listed by registration number. In 1910 the Royal Dutch fields in the Moreni area were producing approximately 1,500 tons of oil daily, and still anticipating prolific increases. However, methods and equipment for refining in particular, but also deep well boring, were in need of improvement in Romania at the time. Interestingly, a few months after these agreements were signed, on 16 December 1911, the Romanian engineer applied for a patent for a "boring process for deep wells." Patent US1065409-A was granted to him 24 June 1913. Romania as a pioneer city in the oil industry: Modern petroleum exploitation in Romania began in 1857 when the first commercial well was drilled. In 1857 Romania was the first country in the world with its petroleum production officially registered in the international statistics Bucharest was the first city in the world to be illuminated with kerosene, beginning on 1 April 1857, with oil supplied by Teodor Mehedinteanu and his brother Albeit operating by means of rudimentary manual equipment, some consider the refinery built circa 1856 by the Mehedinteanu brothers near the city of Ploiesti, in the historical region of Wallachia, to be the world’s first In 1861 Moreni became the first place in Romania (and third in the world) from where oil was extracted Between 1897 and 1898 Câmpina was the site of the largest oil refinery in Europe Romania was the first country in the world which exported gasoline, in 1900 In 1904 the first world's School of Driller Foremen was founded at Campina In 1914 there were over 100 companies Romania extracting and processing oil product, together producing 1,783,947 tones of oil, and making Romania one of the most important registered oil producers in the world As the center of oil production, Ploiesti was the most bombed city by the Allied Troops during Tidal Waves Operation in August 1943 The Moreni oil field is located in Dâmbovita County.

        Mr. Churchill on the Peers by Winston S. Churchill, original 1910 leaflet, bound in Pamphlets & Leaflets for 1910, Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      London: The Liberal Publication Department, 1911. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This item is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. Contained in this bound volume is the first edition, only printing of this scarce Churchill speech leaflet. In 1910 Winston Churchill was a young lion of the Liberal Party, vexing the British establishment and helping Lloyd George lay the foundations of the modern welfare state. Here is the original 1910 leaflet publishing Churchill's November 14 letter stating vehement opposition to the veto power of the House of Lords. This leaflet captures the young radical Churchill in full flower. "Was ever inequality more scandalous? Was ever injustice more glaring? All classes are to have votes; but only Tory votes are to count. WE CAN SUBMIT NO LONGER TO THIS USAGE. THIS IS OUR LAND AS MUCH AS IT IS THEIRS." The leaflet is two pages, published by the Liberal Publications Department as Leaflet No. 2358 on November 18, 1910. It is bound in this volume containing Liberal Party speeches and pamphlets for the year 1910. The binding is black leather pebble grain spine over green ribbed cloth covers, and the book measures 8.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide by 1 inch thick. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets. The book is a fascinating piece of history, containing pamphlets and leaflets of various shapes and sizes, many of which are folded in and, we imagine, are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. Condition of the bound volume is very good minus. The binding remains square and tight, the leather spine shows no cracking and retains bright gilt, but the leather is nonetheless significantly scuffed. There are some wrinkles to the cloth at the lower front cover, and the corners show minor wear. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are in excellent condition. We find no previous ownership marks. We note modest spotting confined to the first and final few leaves and the page edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A33.1, Woods A18.

        De l'anaphylaxie ou sensibilite croissante des organismes... 33pp., 4to. Autograph manuscript signed

      Paris, 1911. 33-Page Autograph Manuscript on Anaphylaxis by Nobel Prize Winning ImmunologistRichet, Charles (1850-1935). De l'anaphylaxie ou sensibilite croissante des organismes des doses successives de poison. Autograph manuscript signed, 33 numbered loose leaves, prepared for the printer with numerous erasures and corrections. [Paris, probably before 1911.]. 210 x 157 mm. Light horizontal crease where previously folded, minor soiling, rust-marks from paper clip on first and last leaves. Very good. Preserved in a cloth folder. Richet, together with his colleague Paul Portier, discovered the phenomenon of anaphylaxis in 1902, while researching the toxins produced by the Portuguese man-of-war and sea anenome. In an attempt to convey immunity and determine experimentally the parameters of toxicity of these poisons, Richer and Portier injected dogs with doses too small to be dangerous. However, they discovered that second doses of the poison caused immediate death in some of their experimental animals, leading them to conclude that the poison had an effect exactly opposite to the immunizing properties of serums, vaccines, etc.--instead of reinforcing the body's resistance to a foreign substance, a sublethal dose of the poison diminished it. Richet continued his investigations on anaphylaxis, constructing a general theory of the phenomenon in 1907 (see G-M 2599), and attempting to explain the function of anaphylaxis in evolutionary terms. In 1913 he received the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for his discovery.

Cloth bound notebook. Spine perished, some soiling and browning, generally fine. In custom half morocco slipcase and chemise. Halford's Own Press Scrapbook Halford's own scrapbook of press notices and reviews from the publication of Dry Fly Entomology (1897), revised editions of earlier works and An Angler's Autobiography (1903) through the appearance of Modern Development of the Dry Fly (1910) Preserves reviews and notices from The Times, Daily Telegraph, Westminster Gazette, The Spectator, Country Life, The Academy, The World, Evening Standard, and the Times Literary Supplement, as well as from a variety of local newspapers and the sporting press, including the Fishing Gazette, Sporting Gazette, The Field, Sporting Times In the sporting press, a number of the signed reviews are by Halford's peers and friends, including reviews of the autobiography by H. T. Sheringham (The Field, Dec. 13, 1903) and R.B. Marston (in the Fishing Gazette, Dec. 12, 1903; and The Bystander, Dec. 23, 1903). The last review inserted in the scrapbook is the New York Times notice of Modern Development of the Dry Fly (Sept. 17, 1911) Halford took a very dogmatic stand in his books - The Academy headlined one review "The Autocrat at the River-Side" - but even during his lifetime dissenting opinions were offered. In April, 1911, among the reviews of Modern Development of the Dry Fly, is a two-column article from the Daily Telegraph (Apr. 13, 1911), "Books on Fly-Fishing. The Rival Schools. By John Bickerdyke", summarizing the essentials of the Halford-Skues disagreement, with discussion of Halford's last work and Skues' first, Minor Tactics of the Chalk Stream Halford's influence on fly fishing is indisputable, and this scrapbook stands as a UNIQUE and IMPORTANT record of contemporary responses to his writings.

      The Bobbs-Merrill Company Publishers, [1911]., 1911. First edition. Cloth lightly rubbed at fore-edge of front panel, else a near fine, clean copy lacking the elusive dust jacket. Pseudonym of Adrian Van Reypen Egerton Jones. Queen's Quorum 48 says "According to the anonymous author of the dust wrapper blurb on the first edition, Average Jones is 'the cleverest detective since Sherlock Holmes. Everything about the book is refreshingly original. Humor is as strong as mystery. Adventure is emphasized above sensation. Instead of the ghastly and the grewsome, here is an entertainment always gay, brisk, and fascinating.' The blurb-writer was over-enthusiastic, yet more accurate than most of his craft." Eleven short stories that feature Average Jones as the detective. This is an uncommon book and is Queen's Quorum title # 48.

        [PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM OF AN EARLY CALIFORNIA ROAD TRIP BY AUTOMOBILE, 1911]

      [Various California locations, including Paso Robles, Palo Alto, and Napa Valley. ca. 1911].. Sixty-one silver prints, approximately either 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 or 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Mounted to black album pages on rectos only, twin-bolt binding. Minor wear to a handful of photos, light adhesive staining. Very good. A wonderful photograph album recording the travels of two men, two women, and a young boy in California in 1911. The first photo shows the group in a Ford Model T, the sign behind them identifying their location as El Camino Real, twenty-three miles outside Santa Barbara, presumably north of the city. This photograph is captioned in pencil in the border below the image, July 7, 1911. Subsequent photographs show the group traveling extensively over both well-worn roads and rugged terrain. Identifiable locations include Paso Robles, the Thomas Welton Stanford Library Building on the campus of Stanford University in Palo Alto, and the Mt. St. Helena Inn in Napa Valley. There are also several majestic shots of valleys and scenes of the car traveling on tight mountainous roads. Two photographs show what appears to be the ruins of a California gold mine. A treasure trove of images for the California collector, or anyone interested in early automobilia.

Georgeville, Quebec Province, August 31, 1911. 5 pp. 7¾ x 10". The aged General pens an essay/letter which begins My Dear Mr. Norris. What follows is what reads more as an essay on the Civil War. Superb content throughout: "The experiance (sic) of several years in charge of the publication of the records of the Rebellion convinced me that the history of the civil war can never be fairly written with good result as they are not traced to their real sources - campaigns may be described and battles gloried or mourned over, but minor fundamental can never be measured…Spotsylvania Court House and Kenesaw Mountain were unnecessary exhibitions of the slaughter of men - Chancellorsville of a great blunder by a half intoxicated Commander who provided neither scouts nor screen of cavalry…" HENRY MARTYN LAZELLE (1832-1917) Military officer. First commanding officer at Fort Bliss, Texas; Survived two severe chest wounds from fighting Mescalero Apaches in 1859. P.O.W. for over a year in the Civil War. Brevetted major in 1864. In 1887, Lazelle was in charge of the publication of the official records of the Civil War. As colonel of the Eighteenth Infantry, he was again in Texas, as commander at Fort Clark, from 1889 to 1894. In April 1904 he retired as a brigadier general.

      Babylon NY: Gustave Kobbé, 1911. original blue cloth. large 12mo. original blue cloth. 71, (7) pages, plus five plates and medal. The book, written by Sullivan's son, contains the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Medal that was issued and presented by the American Numismatic Society. The Numismatic Society was the successor to the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Memorial Committee. This medal was issued from time to time by the society in commendation of all the human and noble use of a person's abilities, "so conspicuous in the life of Mr. Sullivan." It was especially issued to young men and women admitted to practice at the bar in New York City. The medal was designed by J.E. Roiné in 1908 and was the first specimen struck in the year. Among the members of the original committee were Grover Cleveland, Andrew Carnegie, Rev. Edward Everett Hale, Cyrus H. McCormick and many other prominent businessmen and politicians. The medal is housed in a thick cardboard structure that is stubbed into the text block in the middle of the book. The plates are four portraits of Sullivan and a photograph of the Memorial Drinking Fountain, still in existence in Van Cortland park in New York City. This seems to be a scarce item with only one copy listed in OCLC.
