        Beardslee Chandelier Manufacturing Company Catalog No. (Number) 21 (Twenty-One) - Electric Light Fixtures: For the Trade Only

      Chicago, Il: Beardslee Chandelier Manufacturing Company. Hardcover. Beardslee was a designer and manufacturer of gas fixtures, electroliers, and combination fixtures with manufactory and salesrooms at 216, 218 and 220 South Jefferson Street, Chicago. This massive catalogue of electric light fixtures is printed upon glossy stock and includes 284 fifteen by twelve inch black and white photographic plates, numbered 222 through 506, each proudly displaying an average of three models for a total of over eight-hundred different offerings, complete with pricing, dimensions and other details. Plates 499-506 present photos and detailed drawings of a diverse assortment of shades, brass parts, lamps (bulbs), sockets, reflectors, glassware, etc. A two-page index indicates the plate upon which each model number can be found. Last page is a colour plate illustrating the nine colours of art glass used in the fixtures and shades illustrated. Binding intact. Minor warp to navy cloth front board which features brilliant silver decoration and lettering. Minor bits of writing upon dark brown front free endpaper. Copyright date underlined. No other markings. Fore-edges of boards degraded by decades-past moisture exposure which also affected almost the entire fore-edge of all pages with the result that approximately one-eighth to one-quarter inch of the coated paper has disintegrated. Fortunately, no text or images affected by this loss. On some pages, dampstaining inpacts up to one-quarter inch in from fore-edge, again with no impact to text or images. Presents a magnificent spectrum of American electric lighting from the early 1900s. . Fair. 1912. First Edition.

        A Negro Explorer at the North Pole

      New York: Frederick A. Stokes 1912, 1st Edition. () xii,200pp. Near fine in good dust jacket. Small Octavo . Illustrated with frontispiece portrait and 3 plates (both sides) from photos. Original blue cloth with white lettering and black and white portrait of Henson mounted on front cover. Spine unfaded and without the usual flaking off of the lettering. The original dust wrapper has about 3 cm. Missing from the bottom of the spine and a larger chip on the top of the spine affecting the lettering. Also a chip on the front panel affecting the title. Old ownership signature on the front pastedown. A clean copy with no internal problems. Not in A.B. (Racism in the 1950's?), and very scarce indeed especially in the rare dust wrapper. Henson was Peary's black companion on all but his first trip to the Arctic, and the only other member on Peary's last expedition (other than Eskimos) that was allowed to go to the Pole. The book was apparently quite unsuccessful, with few copies sold. You can imagine how much attention was paid to a book by a black man in 1912. Rare in the Dust Wrapper.

        Beardslee Chandelier Manufacturing Company Catalog No. (Number) 21 (Twenty-One) - Electric Light Fixtures: For the Trade Only

      Beardslee Chandelier Manufacturing Company, Chicago, Il 1912 - Beardslee was a designer and manufacturer of gas fixtures, electroliers, and combination fixtures with manufactory and salesrooms at 216, 218 and 220 South Jefferson Street, Chicago. This massive catalogue of electric light fixtures is printed upon glossy stock and includes 284 fifteen by twelve inch black and white photographic plates, numbered 222 through 506, each proudly displaying an average of three models for a total of over eight-hundred different offerings, complete with pricing, dimensions and other details. Plates 499-506 present photos and detailed drawings of a diverse assortment of shades, brass parts, lamps (bulbs), sockets, reflectors, glassware, etc. A two-page index indicates the plate upon which each model number can be found. Last page is a colour plate illustrating the nine colours of art glass used in the fixtures and shades illustrated. Binding intact. Minor warp to navy cloth front board which features brilliant silver decoration and lettering. Minor bits of writing upon dark brown front free endpaper. Copyright date underlined. No other markings. Fore-edges of boards degraded by decades-past moisture exposure which also affected almost the entire fore-edge of all pages with the result that approximately one-eighth to one-quarter inch of the coated paper has disintegrated. Fortunately, no text or images affected by this loss. On some pages, dampstaining inpacts up to one-quarter inch in from fore-edge, again with no impact to text or images. Presents a magnificent spectrum of American electric lighting from the early 1900s. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
