        Raid Paris Boulogne, 1912 / Andre Beaumont sur Hydroaéroplane "Donnet-Leveque" hélice Levasseur réservoir inexplosible Brionne

      Paris: Mabileau & Co., c. 1912. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition. approximately 14 1/2 x 29 1/4 inches. approximately 17 3/4 x 35 1/4 inches. Andre Beaumont in a Donnet-Leveque, one of 3 models built in 1912. The plane had a 27' central float and was controlled with warping ailerons. The wording also touts a non-explosive fuel tank by Brionne. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Tennis. 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-1890's, 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, being 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. 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. The process was quite labour intensive and the studio of Gamy-Montaut employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring.

        MANUSCRIT - Etudes des principales matières textiles : LA SOIE (Cours de tissage des soies unies, rayées, quadrillées, fantaisies)

      1912. sans lieu (mais Lyon apparaissant sur un bon imprimé de condition publique des soies, laines et cotons contrecollé dans l'ouvrage) sans mention de date ( mais 1912 apparaissant sur un bon imprimé de condition publique des soies, laines et cotons contrecollé dans l'ouvrage), fort in folio (38 x 29 cm), non paginé (421 pages). Très abondante documentation avec 5 planches en noir de métiers à tisser contrecollées, de très nombreux dessins, croquis, diagrammes, tableaux , calculs en noir et en couleurs, mais surtout avec 85 des 86 échantillons originaux (dimension 12 x 4 cm) de soie de l'époque contrecollés (un échantillon manquant celui du satin de 6 interruptions), Reliure pleine toile brun-kaki, plats muets, dos titré en doré. Manuscrit sur fort papier quadrillé. Important manuscrit unique et anonyme, rédigé en noir d'une belle écriture lisible à la plume (certainement la thèse de fin d'étude d'un futur cadre soyeux lyonnais). Le maire de Lyon, Antoine Gailleton au conseil municipal dans sa séance du 14 décembre 1883 déclarait au sujet des ateliers de la soie : Messieurs, Lyon, la ville de la soie, n'a pas d'Ecole de tissage... Les enfants de l'ouvrier manquent d'écoles d'apprentissage et, pour se perfectionner dans leur art, n'ont que des ressources absolument restreintes et sont ainsi dans l'impossibilité d'acquérir une instruction professionnelle complète. L'ouvrier, obligé par les exigences de la fabrication de modifier son outillage pour monter de nouveaux articles, est contraint trop souvent de recourir à des intermédiaires onéreux ou de perdre un temps précieux, faute d'avoir un renseignement précis qui le guide. Ce manuscrit, s'ouvre sur un chapitre abordant l'histoire et l'élevage du vers à soie, puis traite tous les aspects techniques et renseignements principaux intervenants dans le blanchiment, la teinture, l'impression, l'apprêt des textiles et ses diverses opérations, avec de nombreux croquis, calculs, recettes naturelles ou formules chimiques pour ces opérations. Cet ouvrage aborde également les descriptions des mécaniques des métiers à tisser, les mises en carte, le lisage accéléré, le montage d'un métier. Le texte est illustré par de nombreuses figures et 5 planches, in et hors-texte, en noir et en couleurs. La partie, la plus conséquente de l'ouvrage présente 85 analyses de tissage de la soie fantaisie ou unie (avec les calculs de l'empoutage, du colletage, du remettage, de l’ourdissage, du lissage, de la réduction et de la mise en teinture pour les tisser) avec la grille de leur mise en carte. On y trouve de très nombreux tableaux, croquis, grilles, graphiques, planches en couleurs in et hors texte réalisés par l'auteur et surtout, l'ECHANTILLON DE SOIE réalisé de ces 85 analyses (12 x 4 cm/échantillon) tous conservés (sauf un). L'ensemble de ces échantillons est en bon état mais souvent ces échantillons sont pliés ou froissés, ils sont contrecollés et glissés sous une petite bande de papier calque, avec les calculs du remettage, de l’ourdissage, du lissage, de la réduction et de la mise en teinture pour les tisser et la grille de leur mise en carte. On y trouve les analyses pour la fabrication des soies suivantes aux dénominations oubliées : gaze droite, mousseline, taffetas 2 fils, taffetas imprimé, taffetas tramé, soie éolienne, shantung, taffetas imprimé sur chaine, taffetas rayé, crêpe de Chine, crêpe Georgette, taffetas poult de soie, taffetas fileté, moire française, moire galoche, moire Renaissance, Louisine barrée, satin de Lyon, sergé, polonaise, soie côtelée, surah, batavia, diagonale, essil imprimé, sergé crêpe, chevron, losange, satin de 5, duchesse, liberty, satin merveilleux, satin grenadine, satin turc, satin palme, royale, royale fantaisie, reps, régence, cannelé doubleté, cannelé simpleté, cannetillé, faille, faille française, gibrine, velours ottoman, pékin satin, pékin reps, pékin imprimé, pékin doublure bayadère, armure glacée, natté, natté quadrillé, satin sans envers, satin double face, sergé sans envers, taffetas double face, velventine croisée, velours épinglé, peluche, peluche double-pièce, velours double-pièce, etc. Une documentation COMPLETE et RARE provenant de la capitale française de la soie française Lyon - Reliure aux coins frottés, déchirure de la toile sur la partie inférieure de la charnière du premier plat de couverture (3 cm), dorure du titre passée, intérieur très frais et de très bonne tenue si ce n'est les froissures de quelques échantillons et parfois l'empreinte de leur décoloration avec le temps sur la page suivante, Bel ensemble

        Home Rule in a Nutshell

      This rare pamphlet publication represents itself as "A pocket book for speakers and electors, containing a brief exposition of the arguments for Home Rule, and answers to the objections raised." This third ("Revised and Enlarged") edition of 1912 is the first to contain an important 4-page introduction by Winston Churchill, lending his name, and influence to the cause. At the time of publication, Churchill served in the Cabinet as First Lord of the Admiralty. His four-page introduction is decisively favorable to the cause: "The facts and arguments collected in this brief epitome deserve the attention of fair-minded and patriotic Englishmen." Churchill frames the arguments in the pamphlet thus: "if they are favorable, what a sorry part will a man have played who out of carelessness, prejudice, or partisanship is guilty of obstructing a settlement earnestly desired by the Irish people, and politic and necessary in itself!" Churchill's family had supported unyielding British control over Ireland. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, won political victories through his support of the Unionists in Ulster. Over time, Winston came to support Home Rule, spurred by the successful example of South Africa, where he had been so involved in his early career. On 8 February 1912 Winston spoke in Belfast in favor of Home Rule - the same Belfast where his father, Lord Randolph, famously opposed Home Rule, declaring in 1886 "Ulster will fight and Ulster will be right." Winston's 1912 reply: "Why cannot this great settlement be made? We have made friends with our enemies; can we not make friends with our comrades too?" This was a major and controversial event, involving extraordinary precautions to protect Churchill's physical safety from hostile crowds. The Home Rule crisis of 1912-1914 was sidelined by the outbreak of World War I. Nonetheless, Churchill would ultimately introduce the Irish Free State Bill, which won passage in 1922. The rare pamphlet publication offered here is a small but substantive publication. It is string-bound in paper wraps, measures 5.25 x 4 inches, and is thick for a pamphlet, with 92 pages of small, dense print. Churchill's introduction is prominently advertised on the front cover. Condition is very good indeed for an item of this age and fragility. The paper wraps are lightly soiled, but complete with no losses or tears and tightly bound, with the original string binding intact. The contents are lightly age-toned, but otherwise clean and tight. The only marking found is an ink-stamped previous owner name to the blank inside front cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen B10.1. (Woods mentions only the later, fourth edition, as Woods B5).

      1912. New York: Hodder & Stoughton / George H. Doran Company, n.d. [1912]. Original light brown cloth. First American Edition, issued on the same day as the London edition (and with twice as many illustrations). In this Professor Challenger science fiction tale, also a motion picture, an exploring party ventures to a lost plateau deep in the South American jungle, where dinosaurs still reign. THE LOST WORLD is often regarded as Doyle science fiction at its best; it was, of course, the basis for Steven Spielberg's 1997 film "The Lost World: Jurassic Park," as well as a more recent made-for-TV version.~This is a fine, bright copy (just a touch of rubbing at the very tips). Green & Gibson A37e (with the publication date misprinted as 15 October 1915).

        A Tour in Sikhim, being a journal of five Calcutta tramps on their tour in Sikhim, Easter 1912

      Calcutta: [printed by the Art Press] for private circulation only, 1912. Quarto. (10 3/4 x 8 1/2 inches). Collation: pp.[i-v] [1-]44 [1-2]. Title and dedication printed in red and black 72 photographs (8 1/8 x 6 1/8 and smaller) tipped onto 24 sheets of dark green sugar paper, each image with a mounted slip beneath bearing a printed caption. (10 of the photographs with small sections detached). Original olive morocco, covers bordered with double fillet in blind, the upper cover with small rectangular section, outlined with double gilt fillets, containing lettering in gilt "A Tour / in Sikhim," spine in six compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked by blind fillets, marbled endpapers. A very rare privately- published account of a April 1912 ten-day walking tour in the northern Indian state of Sikkim, bordering Tibet and Nepal The five British participants of this tour are described collectively in the work as the "Tramps," and were accompanied by "Sprite" a lively fox terrier. Although they all appear in a number of the photographs which illustrate the book, they are identified in the text only by their nicknames: three Scots (the Manager, the Fiend and the Scribe) and two Englishmen (Padre and Geologist or Geo). The only other clues to the identity of the travellers is offered in the preface (written by the Scribe) which is initialed W.M. -- he was evidently the author of the text, whilst the Fiend was the photographer. The work is dedicated to G.A.E. and J.B. The text is a narrative of the trip with occasional diversions: quotes from previous travelers in the area, comments on the people and places, occasional notes about the religion and culture of the local people, but all told from the point of view of the ruling British Raj elite. The text is tied quite closely to the photographs -- the best of which are very fine views of the stunning mountain landscape through which the party traveled. Every photograph is clearly captioned. The route was decided by the availability of the various "bungalows" which the party stayed in each night. The text and photographs begin with the journey from Calcutta on the Eastern Bengal State Railway, then on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway to Ghoom (alt. 7,407 feet). In the second chapter the Tramps are introduced, followed by the rest of the Caravan: "It may seem incredible, but it is nevertheless fact, that twenty-three coolies, a cook, a bearer, a sweeper, a sardar and two syces were necessary for the comfort of the five sahibs." The journey proper begins on 6th April with a trek from Ghoom to Jore Pokri; on the 7th the five companions marched (and occasionally rode), from Jore Pokri to Tonglu Dak (alt. 10,070 feet). The next days march was to Sandakphu (alt. 11,975 feet) and the Manager contracted a severe fever. On the 9th the Manager's fever had abated enough to allow the party to continue to Phalut, but without Sprite who had disappeared. From Phalut (alt. 11,811 feet) the party set off for Dentam via the summit of Singla La (alt. 12,126 feet), then the Kalhait Valley and Dentam Dak. The next day the party visited the monastery of Sanga-Chelling, were shown around the by Oomchi Lama, and where the Scribe was able to secure examples of printing. They continued to Pemiontchi Dak. The next day they were shown around the Pemiontchi monastery, "the most important in Sikhim," by the head Bara Lama and a detailed description is given. They also encountered a resident dwarf, whose photograph was taken. This chapter concludes with a lengthy description of the daily routine of the monks (taken from Waddell, an earlier authority). The following chapter is dedicated to Lamaism in Sikhim, and again quotes extensively from Waddell. The next day the party trekked from Pemiontchi to Rinchinpong, via Jey-sing -- a descent of 4,000 feet, followed by an ascent of 3,000. The penultimate day they traveled from Rinchinpong to Chakung, and then on the final day the route from Chakung to Darjeeling was taken, descending 4,000 feet and crossing the boundary at Great Rungeet river back into the British Raj and on to Darjeeling. The account ends with a single page including a diagram and table of distances, heights, etc. which records that the trek covered a total of 123 miles in ten days, with a descent of over 8,000 feet being the biggest change in altitude experienced in a single day. Not mentioned in any of the standard bibliographies.

Thick, large 8vo, original sienna cloth gilt lettered on the spines, with small gilt medallion on the upper covers. xxxviii, 546; xxi, 517, [2] ads. A handsome and clean set in very pleasing condition, closed tear with old repair at verso of one map. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION. In 1900-1901 Stein excavated several ruined sites in the Taklamakan Desert around Khotan, publishing his experiences in SAND-BURIED RUINS OF KHOTAN. On this expedition,1906-08, he had the opportunity to return to his work there, extending his systematic explorations farther eastwards for nearly a thousand miles in a straight line, though covering almost ten thousand miles of marching distance. The expedition completed an extensive survey of the Kun-lun Range and explored a number of ruined sites in the desert far beyond the extant oases east of Khotan. It was on this expedition that Stein explored the western end of the Great Wall of China and discovered the Cave of the Thousand Buddhas. For his work on this second expedition Stein was awarded the Founder's Gold Medal by the Royal Geographic Society.

        TWIXT LAND & SEA

      1912. [from Conrad to J.B. Pinker] Tales. A Smile of Fortune / The Secret Sharer / Freya of the Seven Isles. London: J. M. Dent & Sons, 1912. Original olive green cloth. First Edition, in the uncommon second (of three) binding states. This collection of three tales is known primarily for the middle one, "The Secret Sharer" -- Conrad's best-known short story excepting "Heart of Darkness."~The binder made an error on the binding of 'TWIXT LAND & SEA, revealed by this copy: on the front cover he listed the third tale as "Freya of the Secret Isles." The error was discovered after only about twenty copies had been issued (the rare first binding state); on the other copies that had already been bound up, the word "Secret" was buffed out and the word "Seven" printed over it -- though the erroneous word remains evident underneath (the second binding state, as here). Finally, those copies not yet bound up (the majority) were done so in a smoother cloth, with the error completely corrected.~This copy is in fine condition, other than minor sunning of the spine which is typical for olive green cloth; atypically, there is no foxing on the leaves within. Provenance: bookplate of the renowned Conrad collection of Stanley J. Seeger. Cagle A16a.1, binding b. ~This copy is INSCRIBED BY JOSEPH CONRAD to his literary agent, "Signed for JB Pinker | with love | by Joseph Conrad". Pinker was one of the first literary agents in London, counting among his clientele H. G. Wells, Henry James and Stephen Crane -- and, beginning in 1898, Joseph Conrad. During Conrad's lean years of 1904-1910, Pinker also became, in effect, Conrad's banker -- providing him with greater and greater "advances" of cash, hoping for ultimate repayment when and if Conrad's fortunes would turn. Between 1910 and 1912 the two were not on speaking terms -- but in the spring of that latter year, their relationship was patched up (this book was inscribed most likely late that year, upon publication); the ensuing success of Conrad's CHANCE turned around his finances, solidifying the Conrad-Pinker relationship until Pinker's sudden death in 1922.

Hand colored map with contemporary regional names. 128 hand-captioned sepia toned gelatin silver prints chronicling an expedition through Kenya and Uganda led by Richard Storch in the early 1900s.

      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.

        Tedious Brief Tales Of Granta & Gramayre (Rare Dustwrapper)

      UK 1st edition. Original pictorial boards depicting a cowled, beckoning skeleton. 93pp, last two pages still uncut. Short poem plus nine highly regarded fictional supernatural ghost stories set in and around the University Of Cambridge by the then Master Of Jesus College. Arthur Gray was a friend and contemporary of the ghost-story writer M.R. James; both had their work published in 'The Cambridge Review' before it later appeared in hardback book format. The book has a little age-browning to the endpapers and one small ink name to the front freee endpaper but is otherwise in bright, fine codition. The dustwrapper has a very slightly toned spine, light chipping to the spine ends and an unobtrusive 1cm closed tear to the bottom edge. Nevertheless, we have no reservations about describing the dw as in near fine condition. A remarkable survival of a very handsome, large format book, itself a cornerstone of any serious ghost story collection. NB. The initial print run was likely to be in the low to mid hundreds, and just like Heffers' publication of E.G. Swain's 'Stoneground Ghost Tales' in 1912, was most likely part-funded by the author (Swain contributed 75% of the publication costs for his own book, for example). 'Tedious Brief Tales' sold out however, and was quickly reprinted, bringing the total print run up to circa 1,000 copies. In 1993 it was reprinted by the Ghost Story Press in a limited edition of 300 copies; this edition was produced without a dustwrapper but repeated the origial front design. In 1996 Jesus College reprinted the book as 'The Everlasting Club' (a story from the collection) in red cloth but with the cowled design of a skeleton on the front. This was produced in a run of 2,000 copies and retailed at £6; the College were quite understandably unhappy to discover that speculative bookdealers piled in to snap up most of the copies which were quickly listed for circa £30-40 in catalogues and online. As a result they no longer sell copies direct; nor have they filed copies with the British Library. Running out of ideas, the Ashtree Press also saw fit to reprint the book yet again in 2008. So, the book has been reprinted at least four times, but wise collectors still chase the first edition since it has held its value very well in the last decade. Copies of the first in dw do very occasionally surface but to find one in such stunning collector's condition is very rare.
