        The Greenfield Papyrus in the British Museum: The Funerary Papyrus of Princess Nesitanebtashru, Daughter of Painetchem II and Nesi-Khensu, and Priestess of Amen-R at Thebes, about B.C. 970, Reproduced in Collotype Facsimile, With Introduction and Description

      London: The British Museum (Printed by Order of the Trustees), 1912. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Hardcover. Small folio (measures 10.5 x 12.5 inches). Bound in bright scarlet cloth with gilt titles to spine. Bevelled edges. This is a very heavy book. Tiny amount of wear to spine ends, former owners small name to front free end paper. No other markings. A scarce and much sought after book. Extremely rare in this condition. A BEAUTIFUL NEAR FINE COPY. The present Volume contains a complete half-scale facsimile of the Greenfield Papyrus in the British Museum, and a full description of its contents. This papyrus is one of the longest and most beautifully illustrated manuscripts of the 'Book of the Dead' to have survived. The complete papyrus was over thirty-seven meters (122 feet) in length. It was made for a woman named Nestanebtashru, the daughter of the high priest of Amun Pinedjem II. As a member of the ruling elite at Thebes, she was provided with funerary equipment of very high quality. Many of the spells included on her papyrus are illustrated with small vignettes, and besides these there are several large illustrations depicting important scenes. This papyrus was one of a number of funerary papyri that were found between 1871 and 1881 in the tomb at Der al-Bahari which served as a hiding place for the mummies of the kings and priest-kings who reigned from about 1550 B.C. to 950 B.C., and it was presented in May, 1910, to the Trustees of the British Museum by Mrs. Mary Greenfield, by whose husband it had been acquired. The care displayed in the writing and in the execution of the Vignettes, and the generous spaces between the Chapters, and in the larger Vignettes, suggest that the copyist was no hireling who covered so many feet of papyrus with text and Vignettes as quickly as possible, but a careful scribe to whom the work was a labour of love. The selection of the Chapters from the Book of the Dead, and the treatment of some of the Vignettes further suggest that the copyist was a member of the College of Amen, and may even have been Nesitanebtashru herself. In the list of her titles, which is found in several places in her papyrus, she is called the dakd, of the rolls, or manuscripts, of Amen-Ra, the " King of the gods," and "singer of the liturgy of Mut, the Lady of Ashru. What the duties of these offices were exactly is not known, but it is clear that the performance of them involved a knowledge of the contents of the "divine books " of Amen-Ra, and she must have taken part in arranging the musical portion of the service of Amen-Ra and Mut at Karnak. The latter half of the Papyrus of Nesitanebtashru contains a large selection of Hymns, Litanies, etc., which are not known to exist in any other papyrus, and it is not unreasonable to conclude that she was the bakd - the worker, or author of them. According to Budge, it is very possible that a great many of the sections of the liturgies which she sang at dawn, at sunrise, and at sunset, and the Hymns which she sang monthly on the day of the new moon, and during the great festivals at Karnak, were composed by herself. The contents of the papyrus are exceedingly valuable for the study of the Egyptian Religion under the New Empire, for they illustrate the manner in which an educated priestess on the foundation of Amen-Ra succeeded in adapting her belief in Osiris, the great national Ancestor-god, to suit the demands for supremacy in Heaven, Earth, and the Other World which were made by the brotherhood of Amen-Ra on behalf of their god. The Papyrus of Nesitanebtashru contains eighty-seven Chapters of the Theban Recension of the Book of the Dead, and a long series of Hymns, Litanies, and invocations to Ra, Ra-Harmakhis, Osiris, Thoth, and other gods.

        [Broadside]: Our Songsters Migrate Westward

      [Cambridge, Mass.]: Harvard Lampoon. 1912. First. Cartoon illustrated broadside, unprinted on verso. Approximately 15" x 10.75". Signed "Benchley" in print in lower right corner. Chip in lower right margin, paper remnant on verso of upper left corner with resulting slight stain on recto where it was removed from a scrapbook or album, two old vertical folds, good or better. Very early comic broadside illustrated by then student Robert Benchley, from an illustration that appeared in the January 17, 1912 Harvard Lampoon, featuring seven vignettes, all but one captioned, depicting the members of the Harvard Musical Club's Western Tour over the Winter Holidays in 1911-12. The members are depicted generally acting silly on the train, and at various soirees thrown in their honor. Better known for his witty essays and humorous skits, however while at Harvard Benchley was named the Art Editor of Harvard Lampoon in 1912. He and fellow Lampoon artist Gluyas Williams remained close friends, and in the future Williams would illustrate several of Benchley's books of humorous sketches. This must count as one of Benchley's earliest "separate" appearances; preceding his first book by nine years. Whether he captioned the drawings or just drew them is not obvious to us, but they do exhibit the characteristics of the very dry sense of humor for which he was later well known. .

        Aesop's Fables

      London: William Heinemann, 1912. Arthur Rackham Illustrates Aesop's Fables First Trade Edition in the Excessively Rare Pictorial Dust Jacket [RACKHAM, Arthur]. Aesop's Fables. A New Translation by V.S. Vernon Jones with an Introduction by G. K. Chesterton and Illustrations by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, 1912. First trade edition. Small square octavo (8 x 5 7/8 inches; 202 x 149 mm.). xxix, [1, blank], 223, [1] pp. Thirteen color plates, including frontispiece, with captioned tissue guards, fifty-three black and white drawings of which nineteen are full page. Publisher's green cloth, front cover and spine pictorially decorated and lettered in gilt, lower cover with publisher's blind stamp, pictorial end-papers printed in green, top edge stained green. Very slight browning on pictorial front end-paper from loosely inserted Leicester Galleries leaflet. A fine and bright copy. Complete with the original color pictorial dust jacket, the front panel with a reproduction of the color plate facing p. 84 "The Blackamoor", the spine correctly priced "6/= net" and advertising the 1912 Heinemann publication "The Four Gardens on the back". Dust jacket chipped at lower left of front panel, small chip on lower right corner, and small chip at top of spine, but with no loss of lettering. One small 'tape' stain at top of jacket spine. An excellent example of this original pictorial dust jacket. Loosely inserted is the original Leicester Galleries exhibition leaflet. In over fifty years I have only ever seen two copies in the original dust jacket - the last one we sold in 2002. "In Aesop's Fables (1912)...Rackham's primary intention was to amuse, but his illustrations for fables of 'The Moon and her Mother' and 'The Gnat and the Lion' suggest the imaginative refinement that he brought to the task. Rackham was often his own model; there are several self-caricatures to be detected in Aesop's Fables. He is the man who catches the flea, the pompous gentleman who scoldsd the drowning boy, the credulous slave-owner who scrubs the black boy" (Hudson, Derek. Arthur Rackham His Life and Work, p. 94). Aesop's Fables or the Aesopica is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and story-teller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BC. The 1st century AD philosopher, Apollonius of Tyana, is recorded as having said about Aesop: "... like those who dine well off the plainest dishes, he made use of humble incidents to teach great truths, and after serving up a story he adds to it the advice to do a thing or not to do it. Then, too, he was really more attached to truth than the poets are; for the latter do violence to their own stories in order to make them probable; but he by announcing a story which everyone knows not to be true, told the truth by the very fact that he did not claim to be relating real events" (Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Book V:14). Latimore and Haskell pp. 38-39; Riall, p. 111.

        Photographic salesman's catalogue for export porcelain. [together with;] Tack Loong Price List, 1912.

      Canton: Tack Loong, c.1912 - Two volumes; Landscape folio (330 x 245 mm). Original black moiré silk binding, gilt lettering on front cover, 6 linen-hinged leaves of thick card-stock, with each with a mounted silver gelatin photograph, printed on glossy photo-stock from glass plate negatives, 209 x 286 mm, recording 537 porcelain objects pictured, each identified in the image with its stock number, original tissue-guards laid-in; price list, 26, [2] pp. Sewn in the original printed pink paper wraps, letterpress title to front panel. Spine sunned, front board mildly spotted, some edge-wear and light soiling, couple of corners slightly bumped, free endpapers creased, tissue guards browned and brittle, but remains very good; price list, just a little rubbed, very good. An extremely uncommon survival, a photographically-illustrated late-Qing dynasty salesman's catalogue for export porcelain from Canton, complete with its accompanying price-list. Tack Loong was one of the largest export-ware shops in Canton, located on Old Factory Street, and selling ceramics from Kiangse (Jiangxi), and Hongmu "blackwood" furniture. The Chinese Imperial Maritime Customs Collection Catalogue records that Tack Loong began dispatching bespoke pieces ornamented with the five-clawed dragon for use by the Qing Emperors in 1811, and annually sent tribute until around the time of this catalogue. Canton had long been considered as one of the areas producing porcelain of the finest quality, and in the nineteenth century, Tack Loong became well known to travellers, and the company consequently began to direct their production towards the tourist market and bulk exporters, particularly the British. This remarkable catalogue covers their entire range of table and decorative wares, soup tureens, flower baskets and vases, milk jugs, umbrella stands, various sizes of fish bowls, garden seats, ginger jars, tea pots, complete dinner services. In his trusted Traveller's Handbook for China, Carl Crow explains how prospective customers must take a blue curtained sedan chair rather than a rickshaw, which would be unable to navigate the narrow sewage filled alleyways to the square on Old Factory Street where where Tack Loong was located. Crow also cautions about the possible lead-time if you order one of the large ornate buffets with integral shelves, lockers and Yunnan marble tops, delivery of which could take up to a year. Perhaps unsurprisingly, no copies of either volume on OCLC. See: A Pictorial Handbook to Canton, Hood & Co. (1905), p. 35; China, Catalogue of the Chinese Imperial Maritime Customs Collection at the United States International Exhibition, Philadelphia (1876), pp. 5-6, 14-15; Carl Crow, The Travellers Handbook for China (Including Hong Kong), pp. 187-188
