Glendale, Ohio, 1912. Oblong octavo. Cloth covered board with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front cover measuring 10" x 7". An assortment of 155 sepia toned and black and white photographs measuring roughly 3.5" x 2.5" with some variation affixed to stiff black paper. Offsetting on the front boards, tears and some bowing else very good. A photo album and scrapbook from Glendale College in Glendale, Ohio around 1912. Originally founded in 1854 as American Female College it was later changed to Glendale Female College before closing in 1929. The collection displays the college life of a group of young women from masquerade parties, one was captioned "the new girls dance for the old," to studying in dorms covered in banners and pennants from the school. Besides their academics the women were involved in outdoor activities such as "sun bathing" with messy hair, violin lessons, and a celebration for May Day which involved flower dancing and a May pole. In the rear of the album is a tiny scrapbook with dried fauna, small notes, one featuring the instructions for the May Pole dance, and ticket stubs for the London orchestra, The Pageant of Darkness and Light, and Chanticler with Maude Adams. A wonderful look at early girls education in America. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

POTTER, Beatrix
F. Warne & Co, 1912. First edition. 12mo. Grey paper covered boards, lettered in green and with pictorial onlay on the upper cover. In the original printed glassine dustwrapper. A fine copy in its printed glassine dustwrapper. The wrapper is in very good condition with a couple of minor chips to edges. Pictorial endpapers, fourteen colour illustrations and many small line drawings. On sending the manuscript for Tod to her publisher's Potter wrote of it "I think this story is amusing". It differs from her other stories in that the principal characters are villains. The opening section of the original manuscript read "I am quite tired of making goody goody books" whilst the book on publication read, "I have made many books about well behaved people." It differs also in that it has fewer colour illustrations, introduces the use of line drawings and moves away from the style of short paragraphs used in the early tales.

[Panama Canal] [Photography] [American Bridge Company] Hailes, W.D.
Panama, 1912. The Panama Canal, and the Gatun locks in particular, were marvels of engineering at the time of their construction, far exceeding the largest concrete dams built to that point. The American Bridge Company - the conglomerate created by J.P. Morgan in 1900 and headquartered in Pennsylvania - built the steel spans for the locks at Gatun at the Pencoyd factory on the Schuylkill River in Pennsylvania. Collected here are thirty-three photographs, taken by W.D. Hailes, of the canal's construction. Hailes was likely an electrical engineer working for the American Bridge Company, as we find reference to a W.D. Hailes who worked as an electrical engineer in Rochester in the 1940s, and the versos of the photographs contain notations specific to the American Bridge Company and to the engineers working on the project. The photographs show the construction of the locks at Gatun and varied views of Panama. The fifteen photographs of the construction at Gatun are particularly impressive, and include photographs taken at both the Atlantic and lake sides. One photograph, described on the verso as "Quitting time at the locks at Gatun," shows workers evenly spaced on an enormous ladder leading into the lock, giving a sense of the size of each of the locks. Another photograph shows concrete mixers, noted on the verso as being "the largest in the world." Fifteen photographs show scenes around Panama, with two taken aboard a steam ship, several in Panama City, and many in the wilderness surrounding the canal. Overall a well preserved collection with excellent contrast and some occas … [Click Below for Full Description]

WEGENER, ALFRED
Gotha: Justus Perthes, 1912. First edition. FIRST EDITION IN RARE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS OF WEGENER'S CONTINENTAL DRIFT THEORY. "Wegener is remembered today as the originator and one of the chief proponents of the theory of continental drift, which he conceived after being struck by the apparent correspondence in the shapes of the coast lines on the west and east sides of the Atlantic, and supported with extensive research on the geological and paleontological correspondence between the two sides. He postulated that 200 million years ago there existed a supercontinent ('Pangea'), which began to break up during the Mesozoic era due to the cumulative effects of the 'Eötvös force,' which drives continents towards the equator, and the tidal attraction of the sun and moon, which drags the earth's crust westward with respect to its interior ... Wegener's first publication on continental drift appeared in three issues of Petermanns Mitteilung in April-June 1912 [the offered paper]" (Norman). Before Wegener put forward his revolutionary theory, it "was widely believed that continents and ocean basins are primordial features. This conviction was reinforced by global oceanographic surveys in 1872-77 demonstrating the Earth's bimodal elevation frequency, and simultaneously by gravimetric and geodetic surveys in the western U.S. and elsewhere that confirmed the principle of isostasy (i.e. an elastic crust that floats on a fluid medium). A continent can neither rise from the abyss or sink to abyssal depth spontaneously. The mass excess of its elevation is compensated by a mass deficit at dep … [Click Below for Full Description]

Striking original vintage sepia toned gelatin photograph of the important dancer, ca. 1912. Stamped "ADOLPH BOLM / 'THAMAR' / SERGE de DIAGHILEFF'S BALLET RUSSE" on the verso in violet ink. Right edge trimmed irregularly, small loss to upper left corner, light spotting, else in fine condition. 5.2 x 8 inches [13.2 x 20.3 cm]An early associate of Anna Pavlova, Adolphe Bolm later was a major figure in Diaghilev's Ballet Russes. An injury sustained during this US tour lead him to leave the company and remain in the US, where he went on to organize "Ballet Intime" and collaborate with the New York Metropolitan Opera. He is shown in the present image in the 1912 Ballets Russes production of "Thamar," in a costume by Leon Bakst.In the ballet with music by Balakirev and choreography by Michel Fokine, the subject of the life of Thamar, Queen of Georgia from 1184 to 1213, was transformed in the spirit of nineteenth-century Romanticism, becoming a symbol of nationalist pride in the face of growing Russian cultural dominance in the Caucasus. Russian poet Mikhail Lermontov fictionalized Thamar's history within his interpretation of a Georgian legend of a malevolent seductress in his 1841 poem, Tamara, and it was this version, along with Balakirev's symphonic poem Tamara, that inspired Bakst and Fokine for the Ballets Russes production. Bakst's looming set dramatized Thamar's isolated court in her castle in the treacherous Terek River and provided a stark background for his sumptuous and richly detailed costumes for the queen, her courtiers, guards and suitors.  The men's costumes are b … [Click Below for Full Description]

STRACHAN, Grace C.)
Malcom & Hayes, New York, 1912. Portrait poster tribute to Grace C. Strachan, the President of the Interborough Association of Women Teachers and the leader of the "Movement for Equal Pay" in New York City. Printed on heavy card stock and measuring 10.25" x 15.5". Near very good with some light soiling at the margins. Once mounted as some paper remnants are affixed to the verso, with a crack or split at the upper right corner; held together by one of the paper remnants. The poster features a portrait of Strachan positioned above a plaque dated 1912 with verses lauding her qualities. Strachan began her teaching career in Brooklyn in 1893 and was rapidly promoted until in 1900 she had become the Associate Superintendent of Schools. When the greater New York City school system was consolidated in 1900, she was selected to serve as a district superintendent. At the time, beginning women teachers were paid only $600 a year or about two-thirds that of a beginning male teacher ($900), and women's salaries topped out at $1,440 year or about 60% that of a male teacher ($2,400/year) with equivalent credentials and experience. In her new position, Strachan began campaigning for "Equal Pay for Equal Work" and eventually published a book with that title about the same time she became the President of the Interborough Association of Women Teachers (IAWT). As the association president she lobbied extensively for the cause, and was finally successful in the fall of 1911. This tribute poster was printed the following year. Interestingly, she may have become quite wealthy as a result of her … [Click Below for Full Description]

Léon Bloy
1912. Bon Etat. Descriptif (ph16) Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly disait de Léon Bloy : « c'est un esprit de feu, composé de foi et d'enthousiasme, que ce Léon Bloy inconnu, qui ne peut plus l'être longtemps [...] Pour ma part, parmi les écrivains catholiques de l'heure présente, je ne connais personne de cette ardeur, de cette violence d'amour, de ce fanatisme pour la vérité». À un siècle de distance, une rencontre improbable, celle d'un empereur, Napoléon, et d'un écrivain maudit, Léon Bloy. "Et pourtant Napoléon fournit à Léon Bloy le sujet d'un de ses grands livres, l'un des plus étranges et des plus beaux qu'on ait écrits sur l'homme inépuisable. Dans l'océanique bibliographie impériale, L'Âme de Napoléon figure parmi la poignée de curiosités fascinantes, la gerbe de textes hors du commun que le petit général corse a suscités chez les grands écrivains". Laurent Joffrin.

BULL, Rene
London Constable & Co, 1912. First edition illustrated by Rene Bull. 4to. Maroon cloth with gilt titles on upper cover and spine and rectangular colour onlay to the upper cover. A near fine copy, cloth much brighter than usual, save for a couple of small indentations to the upper board. Contents fresh and plates bright and perfect.

Rene Bull was an Irish born artist who became very well known as a war artist during the Armenian Massacres, the Boer Wars and the Sudan. Bull had a great interest in the art of the Orient and his travels to the Middle East provided him with a knowledge of Arab costume and customs which comes across beautifully in his two most celebrated books, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam and The Arabian Nights. The plates here are full of Oriental colours mixed with an Art Nouveau style. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
