        For Eldredge's The beginnings of San Francisco, the 47 California-themed printing blocks used to produce the volume’s illustrations

      Pr. John C. Rankin Company New York San Francisco: Pr. John C. Rankin Company (New York), 1912. The paper wrappers present are variously just fine or age-toned or browned, chipped, torn along folds. ALL the blocks are in good condition; this is not a sort of thing easily damaged!. 37 half-tone plates (on copper), 10 zinc cuts, all on their wood blocks; plus 3 additional plates on copper and another zinc cut, similarly mounted. A full set of the printer's blocks prepared of the illustrations for Zoeth Skinner Eldredge's The Beginnings of San Francisco (1912), being 37 photographic half-tones on copper and 10 zinc cuts, all on wood blocks, ranging generally in size from approximately 2.5" square to 14" square, with oblong maps measuring up to 20" across. A number of the half-tones were done after drawings by Walter Francis, a California artist and illustrator who worked for the San Francisco Chronicle; a few blocks offer images of photographs, some identified as taken by W.C. Mendenhall of the U.S. Geological Survey or Captain D.D. Gaillard of the Boundary Commission; other images are said to be from paintings and a daguerrotype held privately, with another being the facsimile of a document in the John Carter Brown Library; and, indeed, some are simply "after" images in other books (e.g., The Annals of San Francisco and "Bartlett's Narrative"). The images include a dozen California maps and plans; photographic views of the Colorado Desert and an artistic sketch of "the Trail on the Gila"; portraits of prominent early Californians; several "military moments" and a plan of the Presidio in 1820; plus, notably, scenic and historic "views" including renderings of "the Palo Alto," the ports of Monterey and San Diego, Yerba Buena, and a number of street and bay scenes depicting San Francisco proper.Eldredge was a New York–born banker and amateur historian of California whose Beginnings of San Francisco, though possibly self-published, is listed in Cowan & Cowan and described there as "of great historical value."In addition to the 47 images/blocks from that work present here, we offer four others that seem to be "related" but which we have not identified beyond establishing that they do not seem to be from the same author's History of California (1915). We must wonder, were they images prepared for the Beginnings and not used? The additional zinc-cut image of a document signed by Gaspar de Portola and two of the three additional half-tones on copper (Portola sighting San Francisco bay and the Spaniards marching to Monterey) were found as online images without clear attribution as to their physical sources; and the last, a western scene not identified, has not yet been "matched" at all.Most blocks from the Beginnings are still in or with => wrappers showing the images printed from them, as would have been convenient for the printers — these marked (as the backs of the blocks themselves sometimes are) identifying the images and/or showing that the work was completed. (The additional blocks are unwrapped and unmarked.)In sum, this => complete array of the blocks used for printing a substantial and well-regarded Titanic-era book looks like something that was put on a printing house shelf one afternoon in 1912 at the end of an ordinary project for the pressmen and simply stayed there. Seeing it in on its present PRB&M shelf, coherent and unmessed-with, is like walking up to that shelf just about precisely 100 years later.

It was largely ignored from the 1930s to the 1950s, when new paleo-magnetic evidence appeared to support the theory..

      Hodder and Stoughton. London 1912 - First edition, UK. Slim 8vo. 34pp. Portrait frontis. of Dickens with tissue guard. Bowden House, Harrow stamp to front paste-down. Beige paper covered boards with brown cloth spine, sl. wear to extremities, occasional light foxing o/w VG+. Presentation copy from the author to the library of Bowden House, in Harrow. She writes on the front free endpaper, "I was the child and this my first journey outside my little New England village. It chanced that I met . on the way . Kate Douglas Wiggin" and beneath, "To Bowden House Library. From the author, a happy patient, 1923." This is a particularly moving and unique presentation copy as it was here that Wiggin died, after contracting bronchial pneumonia. During the spring of 1923 Kate Wiggin travelled to England as a New York delegate to the Dickens Fellowship Conference. She became ill and died, at the age of 66, in Harrow. At her request, her ashes were brought home to Maine and scattered over the Saco River. This is possibly the last book that the author of 'Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm' signed. Bowden House is still a health facility on Harrow Hill but now helps patients with psychiatric problems and addictions. In March 1868 eleven year old Kate Douglas Smith met her literary hero Charles Dickens on a train while travelling between Portland, Maine and Boston, Massachusetts. He was on a second reading tour of America. At fifty-six he was nearing the end of his life. His novels and this meeting were to have a profound effect on Kate's life.

The direct literary results of Thoreau&#146;s stay at Walden Pond were the essay &#147;Resistance to Civil Government&#148; (1849), inspired by a night in the Concord jail (the result of not having paid his taxes as a protest against government policies) and early drafts of A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (1849) and Walden (1854). After A Week failed to sell, Thoreau began revising Walden, taking it through seven major drafts before finally publishing it seven years later to modest sales and mostly favorable reviews. Two more trips to the Maine Woods (1853 and 1857) and several excursions to Cape Cod (1849, 1855, and 1857). provided fodder for the essays collected into two posthumous books, The Maine Woods (1864) and Cape Cod (1865). Clifton Johnson an important literary figure with some 125 published books and countless magazine and newspaper articles to his credit. A friend of William Dean Howells and John Burroughs, he was an acquaintance of many other late 19th and early 20th century authors and editors.

        La Fotografía de los Colores. Fundamentos Científicos y Reglas Prácticas.

      Madrid, Imprenta y Librería de Nicolás Moya, 1912. - in-8 carré. 2ff. 312pp. Plein veau, dos lisse orné (reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale du seul ouvrage de photographie publié par le grand neurologue et chercheur espagnol Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852-1934). Son sens esthétique et son goût pour le dessin, qui l'avaient conduit dans un premier temps à envisager une carrière artistique, l'engagèrent dès 1868 à s'intéresser à la photographie qu'il pratiqua par la suite régulièrement, tant pour ses travaux scientifiques que pour son propre plaisir. Le présent ouvrage retrace, avec rigueur et exhaustivité, les problèmes posés par la reproduction photographique des couleurs et les solutions apportées par les divers procédés existants, tous bien connus de l'auteur qui se décrivait lui-même comme "un vétéran cultivateur de presque tous les genres héliochromiques ". 55 figures dans le texte. Bon exemplaire, très bien relié. [Attributes: First Edition]
