        Buried Hull, Believed to Have Been "the Great Harry"

      - Original illustration art, pen and ink with wash and white gouache on illustration board, signed lower left18.5 x 14.75 inches, overall. Drawing done with meticulous attention to detail and historical accuracy, documenting the remains of a buried ship's hull discovered in 1912 in Woolwich, England, in the course of excavating the area for the construction of the Woolwich electricity works near Steamboat Pier Wharf. The upper stories of city buildings and a smokestack can be seen in the background. At the time the ship was unearthed, some experts thought it might be the Henry Grace a Dieu, also known as the Great Harry, a huge battleship of the early 16th century ordered by King Henry VIII. However, by 1970, the consensus was that it was more likely the Sovereign, a ship built in 1488 and known to have been docked in Woolwich in 1521 due to unseaworthy condition. Around the drawing of the lower central parts of the hull and masts, the artist has also outlined in white the contours of what the ship would have looked like whole, and included informational captions, showing that the prow and stern remained buried, that the hold was 40 feet wide and contained stone cannon balls. Another caption explains, "A small CREEK originally existed above this site, later on, in the last century, two small Graving Docks were built; these were filled in & subsequently dug out again for the Electricity Works now in course of construction above the unexcavated parts of the vessel." Surrounding the drawing are handwritten pencil notations, probably by the artist, that explain that the drawing shows what has been found so far, but does not show the present state of things "for a vast skeleton in reinforced concrete & its footings" had been built over it. He also noted that the boat was found piecemeal at first, and not all of it was unearthed because parts of it lay beneath existing homes and gardens on the right, and beneath the riverbank on the left. The notes also state that unfortunately, at first the workers did not realize what it was and some of the pieces were probably mistaken for old docks and debris and thrown away. Morrell further points out that the discovery caused added an expense of "many thousands of pounds" to the construction because the crews had to dig deeper to find solid ground for the footings of the building and they had to get the "great beams out of the way." George F. Morrell was an illustrator and writer and combined these talents as a pioneer of visual educational materials, active for over 50 years. He was a regular contributor to the British periodical The Children's Newspaper from its first issue in 1919 until shortly before his death in 1962, including a regular column on astronomy. Condition: Generally good with the usual overall toning and wear. Numerous notations in margins by artist. Scattered foxing, particularly in margins, can be matted out, though notations would be matted out too in that case. Likely intended for publication. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        History of the Hoppers

      London: W & R Chambers, circa, 1912. Quarto, 12 full sepia lithographs, illustrated, neat early ownership inscription on front endpaper; in the original full-colour illustrated boards, except for a few bumps at extremities and a small chip with slight loss at the base of the spine, in unusually good condition. An unusually fine copy of the first edition of this justly famous children's book following a family of anthropomorphised kangaroo characters - 'perhaps the best known story entirely devoted to the kangaroo' (Robert Holden, {i The Mint Exhibition}, 1985). This excellent copy is particularly notable for its largely intact spine, as the work is nearly always seen with rather extensive damage to this area, and is indeed very commonly rebacked. The book is illustrated with 12 delightful full page sepia lithographs as well as many textual illustrations. Set in Australia amongst a number of adorable native animals including a koala and an emu, the wonderful illustrations capture the Hopper family's many adventures as they run their general store. It has recently been shown the authors of this book were sisters Bessie and Nancy. The Parkers produced a number of picture books including {i Arctic Orphans, Lays of the Greys, }and {i Cinderella at the Zoo, }all with anthropomorphised animals.

        GRAND CANYON OF ARIZONA FROM HERMIT RIM ROAD.

      New York. 1912. - Elephant folio chromolithograph print, 34 1/4 x 25 inches, plus margins. In fine condition. This majestic print is the largest and most dramatic of Thomas Moran's printed works. It was published by the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad in 1912, after the original oil commissioned for (and still owned by) the line. It shows a tremendous sweep of the scenery of the Grand Canyon from the Hermit Rim, with the bright colors of the Canyon shown dramatically against the turbulent sky. Thomas Moran, famous for his superb landscapes of the West, first painted the Grand Canyon in 1873 when he painted his "Chasm of the Colorado," which he sold to Congress the following year. In 1892 he visited the Canyon as a guest of the Santa Fe Railroad, whose line now brought tourists within easy reach, and painted a large canvas for the line in return for a free trip. The Santa Fe Railroad completed a spur line to the rim in 1901, and consistently sponsored "artist's excursions" there from 1901 to 1912, as well as purchasing paintings to serve as a basis for promotional efforts. In 1912 the railroad capped twenty years of association with Moran by commissioning this picture and producing this large chromolithograph. Almost all copies of this Moran print were soon distributed by the Santa Fe Railroad as a promotional gift. Few of these have survived, generally being badly framed, usually without glass, and displayed in poor conditions. A small number remained in the archives of the railroad, and so have retained their untrimmed and pristine state. The present copy is one of these, a fine copy of Moran's most striking printed image.

        Modes et Manieres D'Aujourd'Hui. 1914 - 1919. Annees de Guerre Douze Guoaches de Georges Lepape. Douze Poemes de Henry-Jacques

      Collection Pierre Corrard, Paris - No. 164 of 300 limitation on Papier du Japon. This was a part of an immensely popular series of pochoir sets depicting fashion between 1912 and 1922, with a single issue for the war years, which appropriately carries a more somber tone in its illustrations and verse than the other issues released in more carefree times. Not that some of the joie de vivre and fashion flair is entirely absent here. Most striking about the pochoirs is the simplicity and efficiency of their representations. Georges Lepape was one of the foremost practictioners of the pochoir process, the peer of Georges Barbier, and here he shows himself as fluent at the bittersweet and tragic as at the light and frivolous. The twelve poems and illustrations have a flow and progression and thus this serves as a small lens on the war years and their tumult on the domestic front. The title page has a narrow band of darkening along the left side. The folder has a modest closed tear of the paper along the spine fold or joint. The ribbon tie is missing from the front but present in the rear. The decorated paper used to encase the loose sheets has a few minor tears along the vulnerable folds. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Number 22]

      M. Campion, Colombes 1912 - The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from a paper crease and some minor foxing in the bottom margin. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        F. S. Harmon & Company Furniture.

      F. S. Harmon & Co. Seattle. 1912-1913. - Lavishly illustrated catalogue of furniture and other domestic items bound in green cloth boards, 15 x 9.75 inches, secured with two large screw posts. Diagonal 2.5 inch loss of cloth on upper right corner of front cover, corners bumped, wear to extremities which is mostly light but with cloth worn through at lower corner of back cover. The cover page of the first section is loose and has been creased and repaired on the front with tape ("Supplement. September 1912"), the last page (featuring Bissell carpet sweepers and Fireless Cookers) is lightly creased with short edge tears. (Various interior pages are dated Fall 1911 and April 1913.) The volume contains over 600 illustrated pages in color and black and white. Contents (apart from first and last pages) are in very good condition, with very occasional short marginal tears. An uncommon furniture catalogue from a Pacific Northwest manufacturer. Contents divided by seven labeled tabs, most of which have tape repairs; each section is individually numbered (one section lacks pagination.) The tabs identify a particular line of goods: "Chairs, Rockers, Upholstered Furniture"; "Porch Furniture, Go-Carts, Refrigerators"; "Ex. Tables, Buffets, China Closets"; "Standard Library Tables, Book Cases"; "Office and Hall Furniture, Mirrors"; "Lace Curtains, Rugs, Linoleum, Drapery Sundries." A number of pictured items are stamped "discontinued." Pages for rugs and linoleum are particularly attractive (see illustrations). An impressive catalogue, presumably quite scarce, picturing domestic furniture, hardware, floor coverings, prams, lawn and porch furniture, refrigerators etc. from the early twentieth century.

        Album of 17 original silver print coaching photographs, upper cover gilt- titled "'All Sport' / Plaza Hotel - Arrowhead Inn - Madison Square Garden / Nov. 23, 1912 / L. Moyes"

      New York, ca. 1912 - An album of exceptional interest, recording the excursion of two four-in- hand coaches (one, presumably driven by Mr. Moyes) beginning at the Plaza Hotel entrance, entering and going through Central Park and up Riverside Drive (past the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument) and thence along the Hudson and into the countryside, where they pose by what is presumably the Arrowhead Inn before returning to New York. On some stretches they share the road with automobiles, and there is a particularly fetching scene of one coach and two cars at a suburban intersection under the watchful eye of a mounted police sergeant. As many as ten elegantly-dressed, carnation- wearing passengers are shown seated atop one of the vehicles, which bears the lettering: "Claremont / Washington Heights / New Rochelle / Fordham", suggesting that it may be a public coach. We have been unable to trace Mr. Moyes (he was not, apparently a member of The Coaching Club) but on this outing at least, he and his friends seem to be having a good time while it lasted, before the ubiquitous automobile curtailed the sport on public roads. A SPLENDID PICTORIAL RECORD (COACHING) Oblong 8vo (10 x 13 inches). On front endpaper is pasted the business card of "Haas / Photographer / 546 Fifth Avenue New York City", presumably the studio of Robert Haas, an Austrian-born photographer. Each photo, about 5 x 8 inches, is mounted on hinged card stock on two-color under-mats, protected by glassine sheets--a very attractive presentation. Original blue calf, a little scuffed, bottom of spine worn, else fine. Witkin and London, Photograph Collector's Guide, p. 349

        BELLS and Other Poems

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1912]. First edition. Illustrated with 28 supeb colour plates by Edmund Dulac. 4to, publisher’s original olive cloth very generously decorated in gilt and blind in pictorial and figurative designs over the entire spine and upper cover, with gilt decorated endleaves. A pleasing, bright, clean and handsome copy with only light age mellowing. The plates are especially bright with all captioned tissue guards present. SCARCE AND BEAUTIFUL FIRST EDITION. “The Outlook” and “The Bookman” both commented that ”the book thinking people will say with grace...sometimes Dulac’s pictures are deep-coloured and intense, sometimes dim and ghost-like. But one and all are sensitized to record impressions of unearthly beauty or horror. Only Poe could have written the poems. Only Dulac could have illustrated them.” Indeed, Dulac brings Poe’s genius to life with his worlds of swirling furies, forlorn moonlit maidens, and eerie fairy castles that seem to stumble away from reality into the edge of dream---or nightmare. One of Dulac’s most evocative creations.
