        The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes

      London and New York: Frederick Warne & Co.,, 1911. Sextodecimo. Original green boards, spine and front board lettered in white, pictorial label with illustration to front cover, pictorial endpapers. 27 colour plates. Ownership signature to half-title in ink and pencil to front free endpaper. Small skilful repair to head of spine, spine gently rolled, a little minor foxing to edges; an excellent copy. First edition. The first two printings are believed to be identical. The story of Timmy and Goody Tiptoes is the only Beatrix Potter story apparently set in North America - although this is implicit rather than stated anywhere in the book. All the main animal characters are indigenous to North America: grey squirrels, chipmunks and a "large bear", but the waters are muddied somewhat by the presence of Yellowhammers (or Emberiza citrinella, the birds which sing "Little bita bread and-no-cheese!"), whose range includes Europe and much of Asia but not America.

        Peter and Wendy

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1911 Illustrated by F. D. Bedford. First edition, first printing. Publisher's decorative olive green cloth designed by Bedford, with an illustration of Peter with mermaids and crocodiles within a vine frame surrounding by fairies, candles and birds to the front board in gilt, illustration of Peter looking down on Captain Hook while surrounded by fairies and mermaids to the spine in gilt, lettered in gilt. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, some toning to the spine, minor fraying to the spine head, bright panels, former owner's 1911 inscription to the front free endpaper, fresh and clean interior. Overall, a tight and pleasing copy. Peter and Wendy is the popular story of a mischievous young boy who refuses to grow up and spends his days flying and adventuring with his troop of Lost Boys on the island of Neverland. Peter Pan made his debut in Barrie's 1902 novel The Little White Bird, but his best-known appearances are as the title characters in Barrie's 1904 play Peter Pan, or the Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (published 1928), the 1906 novel after the play Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, and this 1911 novel Peter and Wendy. Notably, this edition contains the final chapter "When Wendy Grew Up," which tells of Wendy's return to Neverland as an adult with a child of her own. Today, this story is generally referred to by the shortened title Peter Pan.. Illus. by Beford, F.D.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

      "Typed Letter Signed, ""John Philip Sousa,"" 1 page, 8.5"" x 11"" on hotel stationery, Los Angeles, October 17, 1911, stating his preference for the acoustics of the Greek Theatre in Berkley's Greek Theatre. Usual mailing folds, else fine condition. ""There are certain places in the world where concert givers are most anxious to perform, and when they do, they ever afterward point with pride to that fact. Among the most famous are the Trocadero, in Paris, Queen's Hall, in London, and the Greek Theater, in Berkeley. As I have appeared in all of them, it is not difficult to see I am most happy, but the most unique and delightful to me is unquestionably the Greek Theater."" The Greek Theatre was constructed in 1903 with financing from William Randolph Hearst and has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1982. Sousa's first appearance at the Greek was in October 21, 1904. Sousa's management at the time had anticipated that the ""excellent acoustic properties of the theatre will enable the band to appear at better advantage than it can in many other places.""

Jennings was both a scientist and photographer who made important strides in the area of scientific photography. He was the first person to take aerial photographs of lightning.

William Jennings is credited with being the first person in the United States to record his own palm prints years apart to test their persistency. After hearing a lecture at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia in 1887 he recorded his prints. In 1937 he again recorded his prints and saw they did not change. Jennings did not publish either of the recordings until 1939. An interesting side note is that this was Jennings only connection to the fingerprint industry.

        Peter and Wendy

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, [1911]. Illustrated by F. D. Bedford. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and front board lettered and decorated in gilt. Frontispiece, illustrated title page and 11 plates. Spine rolled, minor stain to boards, tips a little rubbed, contents slightly foxed. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, of the expanded adaptation into novel form of the story first made popular in the 1904 stage play. In 1906 Barrie sanctioned the publication of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, extracted from The Little White Bird and illustrated by Arthur Rackham, but he reserved for himself the task of turning his theatrical success into a novel. It tells for the first time in book form the familiar story of the stage version, with Peter as an older child flying off with Wendy and the other Darling children to battle Captain Hook and his pirates, and Barrie added a final chapter to the book in which Peter returns for Wendy years later, when she is grown with a child of her own. The stage play itself was not published until 1928.
