        A Collection of Original Annotated Photographs of Theodore Roosevelt In Argentina, Reviewing The Troops At Campo De Mayo, October 12, 1913

      Np: Privately printed, 1913. Only Edition. Photographs. Very good. A Collection of Seventeen (17) Original Photographs From Theodore Roosevelt's Review of The Argentinean Troops at Campo de Mayo on October 12, 1913. Each photograph is approx. 3.5" x 5.5" (postcard size) and is annotated on the verso by a member of TR's group. We are confident that these photographs have never been published. We are unable to say who wrote the descriptions. Traveling with the Ex-President was Frank Harper, TR's Secretary. He soon would be taken ill and have to leave the expedition. I do not believe that the writing is in Harper's hand as TR is referred to often as "Ted". That seems a bit too familiar for their relationship. Nor are the annotations in son Kermit's or wife Edith's hand either. They would also not have referred to him as "Ted". Here is a list of the images by number with the annotations quoted; 1. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 The mounted band of the Lancers passing the stand" (In a later hand) Review in honor of Teddy Roosevelt" 2. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Ted after the review, returning from review to enter his carriage" 3. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Ted & his reviewing party from the rear" 4. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Ted is in the carriage in the center. You can just see his hat. After the review & returning to the RR Station" 5. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Ted & his reviewing party" 6. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 The reviewing party. Ted alongside man pointing" 7. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 The Charge of the Cavalry" 8. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Artillery passing the reviewing stand" 9. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Exercises of Cavalry for T Roosevelt & Party" 10. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Exercises of the Lancers. See the man spearing the dummy on the ground while going full speed" 11. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Troop of Lancers passing reviewing stand" 12. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Cavalry grouped, after exercises & singing with the band while returning to quarters. (Honor of Ted)" 13. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 T. Roosevelt boarding carriage after the review" 14. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Effects of sham battle. Raining all thru the exercises & very gray day. Note how smoke hugs the ground" 15. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Troop of Lancers; Artillery to left in the distance" 16. "Campo de Mayo, Arg Nov 1913 Artillery passing the stand" 17. "B. Aires Nov 1913 The "Dirreccion de la Instruccion Publica", (Public Instruction)" T. Following Theodore Roosevelt's unsuccessful Bull Moose Party run for the Presidency in 1912, the former President wrote his Autobiography and then embarked on his last great adventure in Wilderness. He and son, Kermit, joined a group of Brazilian soldiers commanded by Colonel Candido Rondon, scientists from the American Museum of Natural History, Brazilian naturalists, and common laborers in an expedition to explore the Rio da Duvida, the River of Doubt. A tributary of the Amazon, it flows through a rain forest wilderness where the only residents in 1913 were native Brazilian indians, not particularly friendly to their rival tribes or the Brazilians in general. This trip nearly cost TR his life. It certainly contributed to his early death just five years following, but it provided him as he said, "My last chance to be a boy"! The Rondon-Roosevelt Expedition of 1913-1914 answered the questions about this river, later renamed the Rio Teodoro. This adventure has been wonderfully chronicled by Candace Millard in River of Doubt, Joseph Ornig in My Last Chance To Be A Boy and of course, Theodore Roosevelt in Through The Brazilian Wilderness. Prior to their departure onto the River, before the real business of exploration began, TR was feted wherever he traveled through South America. He visited Buenos Aires, on October 12th, he spoke before an enthusiastic crowd of over 6000 guests at a dinner that evening. Earlier that day, he reviewed the Argentinean Troops at Campo de Mayo just outside the city. Joseph Ornig describes the moment; "The high point of Roosevelt's stay in Buenos Aires came on October 12, when he attended military maneuvers at Campo De Mayo, the big Argentine army training camp outside the capital. Drenching rains and high winds did nothing to lessen T.R.s enthusiasm. Surrounded by a hundred staff officers he was reported to be "as cheery as ever", taking the salute from infantry regiments that marched by singing patriotic songs. The bad weather did not prevent several primitive biplanes from circling overhead, one daring pilot buzzed the reviewing stand, causing everyone - including Roosevelt - to duck. Afterward T.R. stood in the rain and chatted with those soldiers who spoke English, complimenting them on their spirit. At the officers club he presented his hosts with a bust of the American Civil War Gen. Philip Sheridan, a gift of the United States Army officer corps. The sculpture was by a then little-known artist named Gutzon Borglum who 30 years later would carve Roosevelt's face in gigantic scale on a mountainside in South Dakota

        Grand Canyon of Arizona, from Hermit Rim Road (Thomas Moran Chromo-Lithograph)

      New York: Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway System. Fine. 1913. Printed by American Lithographic Co. The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad commissioned the original oil painting from Moran 1912 and still has the painting today. Thomas Moran (1837-1926) was the most famous landscape painter of the American West at the time and had begun painting the Grand Canyon in 1873. The Santa Fe spur line was the first track to the South Rim, and the railroad promoted and purchased art of the Canyon. Most of the 2500 chromo-lithographic prints from the railroad were distributed as gifts and heavily used. This is one of a small number of the prints recently found in the archives of the railroad, uncirculated and untrimmed. The print shows the Canyon and far-off Colorado River from the Hermit Rim, with a thunderstorm in the distance and pinyon and juniper trees in the foreground. A striking panorama in beautiful condition. ; Chromo-lithograph; 27" x 35" .

        Mother Goose

      London: William Heinemann, 1913. - Hey! Diddle Diddle, The Cat and the Fiddle [RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. Mother Goose. The Old Nursery Rhymes. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, [1913].Edition de Luxe. Limited to 1,130 numbered copies (of which this is number 31), signed by the artist. Large quarto (11 3/8 x 9 inches; 290 x 228 mm.). xi, [1, blank], 159, [1] pp. Thirteen color plates mounted on brown paper, with descriptive tissue guards, and eighty-five drawings in black and white (one mounted on brown paper, with descriptive tissue guard).Original white buckram pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Minimal darkening to spine otherwise a near fine copy. "So far as titles go we move into a different key with Mother Goose, a book constructed in 1913 from a series of plates and line drawings which had appeared and would appear in St Nicholas between 1912 and 1914. These poems were chosen by Rackham, presumably in terms of themes and subjects he wished to illustrate: this would account for the consistently good quality of the many plates and of the numerous line drawings. Among the most noticeable of pictures in this book are 'Hark! Hark! the dogs do bark!" which has Rackham delighting in rags and tatters a deal more colourful than might be expected in our own age, and the altogether curious colour plate 'Old Mother Goose', remarkable for its composition, in which the black forests and borders merge to form an underlying pictorial structure reminiscent of Nolde or Munch, the colour also being virtually expressionist in feeling. This plate is an aberration, so far as the rest of the book is concerned, for within this we have the usual Rackham motley of lovely women, Rackham-faced gnomes, and all the images we might expect of the title. Quite appropriately Rackham illustrates 'As I was going to St Ives' with his own portrait, in a situation which is almost akin to a schizophrenic's dream, with the dance of seven witches, and the multiples of seven cats and kittens." (Fred Gettings. Arthur Rackham, pp.131-132).Latimore and Haskell, pp. 40-41. Riall, p. 115. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Andrew Melrose, London 1913 - 8vo, pp. xxi, 199. "Murry and Marston's 'Antarctic Days' is a fine complement to the two giants of Antarctic bibliography also emanating from Shackleton's 1907-9 expedition, 'Aurora Australis' and 'The Heart of the Antarctic', and it is one of the most sought-after Antarctic titles" (Rosove p. 277). Published in a 1913 in an exceedingly scarce "Deluxe Issue" and in this, the first trade edition (Rosove 236.A2). Our copy has been skillfuly re-backed and the original spine re-laid. The endpapers have also been renewed. The foredge of the text block shows foxing, with traces of foxing to the margins of some of the pages; otherwinse the contents are bright and unmarked. The spine, as Rosove notes, "is highly prone to greenish discoloration; all copies examined were affected", and our copy is no exception. The cloth of the boards shows traces of soiling and wear, primarily to the extremities. A good plus copy.

Ejnar Mikkelsen was a Danish polar explorer and author who organised the Anglo-American polar expedition with Leffingwell in Alaska, in 1906-07. They lost their ship, but located the continental shelf of the Arctic Ocean by sledge. In an expedition to map out the north-east coast of Greenland and recover the bodies of Mylius-Erichsen and Lieutenant Höeg-Hagen, Mikkelsen wintered 1909-10 at Shannon Island, East Greenland. Mikkelsen's ship sank, he but completed his mission alone by a series of hazardous sledge journeys, and successfully recovered the lost records of Mylius-Erichsen and Höeg-Hagen. In the same trip, Mikkelsen disproved the existence of Peary Channel. A truly fascinating and resilient man, whose greatest tales are recounted in Lost in the Arctic.

        Description of the educational exhibit of cocoa and chocolate... [Together with:] Educational exhibit. Cocoa and chocolate prepared by Walter Baker & Co.

      "Dorchester, MA": "Walter Baker & Co., Ltd.". 1913. "Oblong 8vo, pp. 39, [1], followed by 6 high-quality chromolithograph plates of Walter Baker products; 5 other full-page illustrations; fine in original maroon cloth, gilt-lettered on upper cover. The educational exhibit consists of what presumably is a salesman's wooden lacquered case (approx. 9½"" x 5½"" x 3½""), with a hinged lid on top, and a brass plaque and pull; mounted inside the lid are 4 Baker products, and inside the box itself are four apothecary viles, each still containing Baker products! Uncommon salesman's sample case and companion handbook which were released to promote the Walter Baker ""health-giving breakfast cocoa and chocolate."" The text explains the transformation of the cocoa seeds from the raw material, describes the early uses of cocoa and chocolate, a description and analysis of the cocoa seeds, the cocoa tree and the gathering of the crop. The four vials represent the various stages of cocoa production, and the cocoa tin mounted 1nside the lid preserves the trademarked chocolate server logo, La Belle Chocolatiere, adopted by the company in 1883 after a painting by the Swiss artists Jean-Etienne Liotard. Founded in 1780 the Walter Baker Company grew throughout the 19th century and into the 20th becoming one of the largest in the United States. Purchased by the Forbes syndicate in 1896, the brand was eventually absorbed in 1979 by Kraft Foods."

        Original caricature signed, believed to be of the French composer Paul Dukas (1865-1935)

      Octavo, 189 x 149 mm. Dated 1913. Blue pen and wash. Slightly worn and foxed, especially to verso; creased at upper edge and central fold; remnants of adhesive to upper corners of verso. Together with: A handsome postcard photograph of Caruso seated, stylishly dressed, with cigarette and cane in hand. 136 x 84 mm., with the name of the photographer's studio (Brogi), printed to lower right edge of recto, the name and London address of the publisher Breitkopf and Härtel and "Printed in Germany" printed to verso. Slightly browned; remnants of adhesive to verso. . "With his original treatment of traditional forms, his highly inventive approach to musical drama, and his importance as a teacher and writer, [Paul Dukas] occupies a central position in French musical history... Dukas was not only an influence on many French 20th-century composers and others such as Zemlinsky and Berg, but also remains important in his own right. His reputation rests on only a small number of compositions, notably the Piano Sonata, Ariane et Barbe-bleue, the ballet La Péri and L'apprenti sorcier. Dukas's influence as a critic, from 1892 to 1932, can be compared with Debussy's; his informed opinions reveal great sensitivity to the musical and aesthetic changes that took place during the period."

        The Book of the Dead: The Papyrus of Ani (Two text volumes plus a separate volume of 37 folding color plates)

      London/New York: Philip Lee Warner/G.P. Putnam, 1913. Revised Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. New and revised edition. design to front and gilt titles and image of Thoth to spine. Top edges gilt. The Papyrus of Ani, which was acquired by the Trustees of the British Museum in 1888, is the largest, the most perfect, and the best illuminated of all the papyri containing copies of the Theban Recension of the Book of the Dead. Its rare Vignettes, Hymns, and Chapters, and its descriptive Rubrics, render it of unique importance for the study of the Book of the Dead, and it holds a very high place among the funerary papyri that were written between B.C. 1500 and B.C. 1350. Although it contains less than one-half of the Chapters which formed the Great Corpus of texts written for the benefit of the dead, it can be concluded that Ani?'s exalted official position , as Chancellor of the ecclesiastical revenues and endowments of all the Temples of Thebes and Abydos, will have ensured the inclusion of all the Chapters which an educated Egyptian deemed essential for salvation. The Papyrus of Ani is, in short, typical of the Book of the Dead in vogue among Theban nobles of his time. Volume one of the present edition contains the general Introduction, with chapters on the History of the Book of the Dead and on Egyptian Religion. Then there is a full description of the Papyrus of Ani, plate by plate. Volume two contains a complete transcript of the Papyrus in hieroglyphic type, with English translation, notes, and an index. The third volume contains 37 large color folding plates of the entire papyrus. All plates are present and in fantastic condition. There are some tiny corner bumps to upper right on all three volumes and some light rubbing to the gilt along spines of all volumes. Blind stamp of former owner Herbert Cutler Brown to lower title page. Overall an attractive set in very good condition.

        THE WEST INDIES AND PANAMA MARCH AND APRIL, 1913

      [Various Caribbean locations, 1913. Full brown leather, string-bound. Minor edge wear. Internally clean, with photos in excellent condition. Very good. A delightful and well-produced souvenir photograph album of a 1913 vacation cruise through the Caribbean, compiled by Mr. and Mrs. John Joseph Donovan, and presented to their daughter Geraldine Goodheart Donovan on the title leaf. In an interesting form of quasi-publication, the introduction and an explanatory text are printed and mounted opposite original photographs. In a printed note titled "Our Trip" mounted to the verso of the titlepage, the Donovans explain that "these notes and pictures of our trip to Panama, the West Indies and Caracas are prepared as a souvenir for a few personal friends and relatives." The photographs are arranged according to each location they visited, with each section beginning with a short printed commentary by them. The Donovans sailed upon the VICTORIA LUISE, a "floating hotel" from which they observed the South Atlantic and Caribbean. Captions mounted with the photos chart the journey from the moment they leave New York on March 11, 1913 to just before they head home on the train. In between, the album is filled with wonderful images of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Panama, Venezuela, Trinidad, Barbados, Martinique, and St. Thomas. Highlights of the photographs include Morro Castle and several street scenes in Havana; Caguas Church in San Juan; Nelson Monument in Kingston; a handful of shots showing completion work on the Panama Canal, namely Gatun Lake and the Culebra Cut; a view of Caracas from Columbus Monument; a shot of ten children in Trinidad labeled "Pickaninnies"; a sugar cane field in Barbados; a market scene in Fort-de-France, Martinique; and Bluebeard's Tower in St. Thomas. In addition to the photographs of the various locales, there are also several photographs showing on-deck activities including tug-of-war, a pillow fight, "Girls' Nail-Driving," and more. An attractive photographic record of a wonderful trip from New York, through the Caribbean, and back again, produced at no small expense to the travelers, evidenced by the arrangement of the photographs and the printed personalized commentary that opens each section.

        Antarctic Expedition - Scott Memorial Plaque

      [c.1913] - Embossed bronzed copper plaque (255 x 355 mm), in original ebonized wood frame (framed size, 367 × 455 mm). Some minor wear to the frame, with a few expert repairs, but overall in excellent condition. Wide border of laurels, twined with a wreath bearing the names of those who died on the expedition, at the corners are roundels with portraits of Scott, his wife Kathleen, and their son Peter, and the cross atop Scott's grave cairn; the border encloses a quartered panel with four scenes from the expedition, a dogsled pulling away from the Terra Nova, the Pole party man-hauling a sled, the party at the Pole, and the graves of Scott, Scott, Wilson and Bowers, a central 'boss' has a 'portrait' of Nigger, the expedition cat. Small metal label with the inscription "dulce et decorum est pro patria mori" - "A sweet and fitting thing it is to die for one's country". Attractive commemorative souvenir, Scott's widow herself received a silver version of the piece. The Polar scenes are based on photographs by Bowers and Ponting that appeared in issues of the Daily Mirror - the newspaper had exclusive rights to all expedition photographs - for either 12 February, the day on which Scott's death was announced, or the "Captain Scott Number" of 21 May, 1913, which published the first images of Scott's party at the Pole.

        Considérations sur les Résultats d'un Allégement Indéfini des Moteurs." In: JOURNAL DE PHYSIQUE THEORIQUE ET APPLIQUÉE, 5e série, tome III (Mars 1913).

      Paris: Au Bureau du Journal de Physique, Mars 1913 - Octavo, single issue, original blue wrappers printed in black, untrimmed. Esnault-Pelterie's lecture on "considerations on the results of unlimited lightening of engines," delivered in 1912 in both St. Petersburg and Paris, was the first to demonstrate theoretically that space travel was possible; it marks the beginning of theoretical astronautics. "The lecture contains all the theoretical bases of self-propulsion, destroying the myth that rockets need atmospheric support and giving the real equation of motion. Anticipated is the use of auxiliary propulsion for guidance and complete maneuverability of rockets. Also contained are calculations of the escape velocity, the phases of a round-trip voyage to the Moon, and the times, velocities, and durations, of trips to the Moon, Mars, and Venus, as well as thermal problems related notably to the surface facing the sun . This 1912 lecture is the first purely scientific study marking the birth of astronautics. While Tsiolkovsky had the prescience and talent to first suggest, in 1903, rocket propulsion to space, REP was the first to develop the equations of the problem and to establish the mathematical theory of interplanetary flight. REP is thus the founder of theoretical astronautics" (Blosset, p. 9). As noted above, the use of rockets for space travel had been discussed by the Russian scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935) in his 1903 paper, "Exploration of Cosmic Space by Means of Reaction Devices," as well as in an earlier paper published in 1896. However, Tsiolkovsky's work was published only in Russian and it remained almost completely unknown to Western scientists until the 1920s. Esnault-Pelterie did not know of Tsiolkovsky's rocketry work in 1912, but had become aware of it by 1930; see the historical introduction (pp. 17- 38) of his L'ASTRONAUTIQUE. Esnault-Pelterie's lecture first appeared in print in the JOURNAL DE PHYSIQUE THEORIQUE ET APPLIQUÉE, but in abridged form, due to both space considerations and the trepidation of the journal's editor, who was shocked by Esnault-Pelterie's ideas on space travel. "REP deplored the exaggerated condensation of the lecture, which was the cause for an apparent divergence between Goddard's and his own opinions concerning the possibility at the time of building vehicles capable of escaping from the earth's gravitation. In fact, Goddard wanted only to send a projectile loaded with powder to the moon and observe its arrival by telescope. REP considered the conditions necessary for transporting living beings from one celestial body to another and returning them to the earth; his more pessimistic conclusions were based on considerations of the substantial initial mass required for a rather small final mass, in view of the limited means available at the time" (Blosset, p. 9). Blosset, "Robert Esnault-Pelterie: Space pioneer," in Durant and James, First Steps toward Space (Washington DC: Smithsonian Institution Press, 1974), pp. 5-31; pp. 23-31 contain an English translation of the unabridged lecture.

        Panurge. [Subtitle]: Haulte farce musicale en 3 actes de MM. Georges Spitzmüller et Maurice Boukay. [Music by Massenet].

      [Printed by J. Minot] [1913], [Paris] - "Panurge, which should have been a popular farce in the lineage of Cendrillon and Don Quichotte, never achieved any success despite the usual masterly timing which Massenet deploys. The adventures and misunderstandings of Panurge and his wife Colombe make excellent operatic comedy. But perhaps the grossièreté of Rabelais is more literary than theatrical. In truth this final endearing comedy, which had to compete for attention with such novelties as Le sacre du printemps when it was first performed, has never been put to a fair test on the stage." Hugh Macdonald et al in Grove onlineA striking image of the rogue Panurge, sung by Vanni Marcoux, created for the premiere of the opera at the Théâtre de la Gaîté on April 25, 1913. "The artist Léandre (1862-1934), born in Normandy, began his career in Paris painting decorative pictures for hotels, then studied at the Beaux-Arts with Cabanel. [He] was known for his caricatures, many of which he drew for the periodical Le Rire. A street in Montmartre bears his name and a statue of him was erected in Paris after his death."

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung.

This trade issue was preceded only by a softcover acting issue for the Vaudelville production (Mason 340). Originally published serially in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in July 1890 and in book format by Ward, Lock & Key in 1891, The Picture of Dorian Gray is a Gothic novel about the handsome Dorian Gray, who, like Faust, trades his soul for sensual pleasures. Specifically, Gray, who knows his physical beauty will fade over time, wills that his beauty never fade so that he may continue to indulge in worldly beauty indefinitely; instead of bearing the responsibility of his sins, Dorian Gray remains youthful and unblemished while his full-length portrait ages and grows increasingly ugly.

Ejnar Mikkelsen was a Danish polar explorer and author who organised the Anglo-American polar expedition with Leffingwell in Alaska, in 1906-07. They lost their ship, but located the continental shelf of the Arctic Ocean by sledge. In an expedition to map out the north-east coast of Greenland and recover the bodies of Mylius-Erichsen and Lieutenant Höeg-Hagen, Mikkelsen wintered 1909-10 at Shannon Island, East Greenland. Mikkelsen's ship sank, he but completed his mission alone by a series of hazardous sledge journeys, and successfully recovered the lost records of Mylius-Erichsen and Höeg-Hagen. In the same trip, Mikkelsen disproved the existence of Peary Channel. A truly fascinating and resilient man, whose greatest tales are recounted in Lost in the Arctic.

A group of books from the personal collection of Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1974) one of the world's premiere fashion designers during the '20s and '30s, whose popularity once rivaled Coco Chanel. Schiaparelli pioneered numerous now-iconic fashion staples such as the divided skirt, first worn by tennis player Lili de Alvarez at Wimbledon in 1931; trompe-l'oeil detailing in knitwear; the recasting of fasteners such as zippers, buttons, and hooks as featured fashion elements; the early adoption of synthetic materials such as rayon, acrylic, and cellophane into high fashion; and her incorporation of playful, surrealist design into fashion through collaboration with friends Jean Cocteau, Leonor Fini, and Salvador Dali, with whom she created the Lobster Dress made famous by Wallis Simpson.Her interest in books was likely fostered by her father a renowned Italian scholar and dean of The University of Rome. .
