        Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures

      1913. With Forty-Four Mounted Color PlatesIncluding 'Cupid's Alley'RACKHAM, Arthur. Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures. With an Introduction by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch. London: William Heinemann. n.d. [1913]. Edition de Luxe. Limited to 1,130 numbered copies, signed by the artist (this copy being no. 412). Large quarto (11 1/2 x 9 inches; 292 x 232 mm). 43, [1] pp. Forty-four color plates (including frontispiece) mounted on tan paper, with descriptive tissue guards, and ten drawings in black and white.Publisher's white buckram, front cover pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Very slight discoloration to end-papers, otherwise a near fine copy in the original (repaired) white cardboard slip-case."Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures brings together a number of drawings unrelated in theme. Most of them, it is true, are drawings of the supernatural, of goblins, elves and fairies, and many are based on actual fairy tales; but there are also delightful straightforward drawings of children at the seaside or in the Broad Walk, Kensington Gardens; there is also the well-known 'Cupid's Alley' [the original of which is in the Tate Gallery], which illustrates verses by Austin Dobson, and there are subject pictures and landscapes of wide variety. It was important that such a book should be drawn together by an introductory essay, and natural for Rackham to invite [J.M.] Barrie to write it. The answer he received was cordial but disappointing: '24 June 1913. Dear Rackham, I wish I could, but I have promised to write two introductions this autumn, and had better not undertake more. Added to which I would be very bad at it as I have no skill in criticism. I am very glad to hear of the book and look forward to it. You have no greater admirer than myself, and few there are more warmly indebted to you. 'Yours very sincerely J.M. Barrie'. Rackham was fortunate in obtaining Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch as a substitute for Barrie. 'Q' not only admired Rackham's work; he also thoroughly understood a child's instinctive longing for the imaginative and fanciful. 'To this instant, constant, intellectual need of childhood no one in our day,' he wrote, 'has ministered so bountifully or so whole-heartedly as Mr. Rackham.' And Quiller-Couch was happy, too, in associating the random, impressionistic nature of much of the Book of Pictures with 'the wayward visions that tease every true artist's mind, while he bends over the day's work'". (Derek Hudson. Arthur Rackham. His Life and Work, pp. 97-98).Latimore and Haskell, pp. 41-42. Riall, p. 118.

        ARCHIVE Of 9 MANUSCRIPT MEDICAL RECORD BOOKS By SYRACUSE DOCTOR 1891 - 1913 Plus Fraisse & Co "Emergency Medical Case", Box of Ergot Aseptic, and Silver Syringe Case

      New York: William Wood & Company, 1913. Black (5) or burgundy (4) leather wallet bindings with gilt ornament to flap and sewn-in leather pencil holder to the inner fold, a.e.g. Commercially published by William Wood & Company, Medical Publishers, under the title, "The Medical Record Visiting List or Physicians' Diary for [year]". Leather chipping/split to several edges with some loss; joints of 1891 vol split with 1" - 2" loss to spine ends; rubber band fragments stuck to three volumes. Expected general wear from use to bindings, owner name and drawn emblem to inside flap and/or ffep of all volumes. Pages clean and neat, with only a few minor scattered smudges, etc. Good condition overall.. ~20 to 30 pp introductory section per record book, containing a printed calendar, standard dosage amts, etc; remainder of record books upaginated, ~200 pages per book. Recording pages lined and ruled, with printed column headings. 6-3/8" x 3-3/4". Emergency case: 4-1/2" x 3-1/8". Lighter: 3-1/4" x 1-3/4". Box of Aseptic: 2-1/2" x 1-5/8" Cache of nine medical record books kept by one Dr. Franklin John Kaufman, for the years 1889, 1891- 92, 1894 - 95, 1899 - 1900, 1911 and 1913. Also included are: an aluminum "Emergency Pocket Medical" produced by Fraisse & Co Laboratory (8, Rue Jasmin, Paris), containing labeled vials of Strychnia (Sulph.), Pure Ether, Sparteine, Ergotine, Camphorated Oil, Caffiene, and "Fraisse's Quineine-Iodo Busmuthate ampoules"; a box of Ergot Aseptic Ampoules, 1/4 Doz. 1 CC No. 29, manufactured by Parke, Davis & Co. in Jan. 1924, apparently unused and with the manufacturer's cutting blade laid in; and a silver syringe case containing a silver-and-glass syringe and three screw-on needles (additional parts may be missing, as there is a sizeable empty slot beside these); and scattered ephemeral material contained in the wallet pockets or laid in. An interesting archive documenting of the late 19th & early 20th-century practice of a Syracuse-based general practitioner, revealing much about medical fees, common ailments (ranging from sprains and the clap, to typhoid fever, cholera, etc.), treatments, causes of death, and more, as well as about the population being treated. Ages and causes of death vary widely, from patients in their eighties dying of "senility" to a child dying of asphyxia half an hour after birth; the section in each volume for the doctor's obstretic practice also includes, in some cases, the parents' occupation (foundry worker, painter, and [general] laborer are prominent), which suggests a potential for further study into possible links between the occupations of these parents and their various ailments, as it is likely they were treated by Dr. Kaufman themselves. Although these volumes appear to reference a presumably much more thorough ledger of patient medical records, many entries bear brief diagnostic or treatment notes in English, Latin or Greek, included beside the fees listed; the quantity of these notes decreases significantly as the years progress, with entries being most thorough in the beginning and quite sparse indeed by the final recorded years. The 14+ pieces of ephemera include a stamped, linen-backed vaccination card for one Simione Gruschid (??), dated May 19, 1899; Dr. Kaufman's membership card for the Lakeside Yacht Club; a physician's order card issued by the Department of Charities and Correction assigning the doctor to attend one John Demkowski's children on Feb 6, 19[11?]; and handwritten prescriptions, jotted notes, clippings, etc. All in all, a well-rounded portrayal, in general note form, of the general medical practice of a successful Syracuse doctor at the turn of the last century.

        The Trees of Great Britain & Ireland

      Edinburgh: privately printed by R. & R. Clark, Ltd, 1913. 15 parts (including the index) in seven volumes, quarto. (12 3/5 x 5 7/10 inches). 8 half-titles, 6pp. list of subscribers, 8pp. errata. 7 coloured titles, coloured frontispieces in volumes I-V (one chromolithographed), photogravure portrait frontispiece of the authors in vol.VII, 413 plates (373 photogravures, 40 uncoloured lithographs). Original pictorial wrappers within seven cloth-backed board portfolios with ties, contained within seven fine modern green half morocco boxes An exceptional set in original parts of this inspirational privately-printed work on the trees growing in the British Isles, China, Japan, the Mediterranean and the Americas at the turn of the 20th century A valuable record of trees from around the world: with a significant number of examples from China, Japan, the Mediterranean and the Americas. All illustrated by very fine photogravures, most showing specimen trees in gardens in the British Isles, but with a number of images showing the species in their native habitats. The work was published by subscription. The exact number of copies printed is not known but the subscribers' list runs to 244 names, with a further 12 individuals or institutions receiving a presentation copy. Elwes and Henry took John Claudius Loudon's Arboretum Et Fruticetum Britannicum; or, the trees and shrubs of Britain (7 vols, London: 1835-1838) as their starting point. Loudon recorded every tree of note in the British Isles, and after a period of over half a century when most of the specimens had suffered considerable neglect, Elwes returned to examine Loudon's trees anew and to record subsequent introductions. 'In taking stock of the results, the task which my friend Mr. Elwes has set himself differs ... from that which Loudon accomplished. That amounted to little more than a descriptive catalogue ... The present work aims at ascertaining the practical results [of growing various species]. What are the most favourable conditions for the growth of each species? What in turn are the most suited for different circumstances? And what, if any, profit can be derived from their cultivation on a large scale?' (W.T. Thistleton-Dyer writing in the 'Preface'). BM(NH) VI,p.300; Nissen BBI 595.

        1913 - 1920 Ketterlinus Lithographic Manufacturing Co. Philadelphia Concerning the Copyright Legal Case Involving Advertising Specialties Made for the Motion Picture Industry.

      Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Ketterlinus Lithographic Manufacturing Co., 1913. Archive consists of approximately 50 pages of material. The Ketterlinus Lithographic Manufacturing Co. was a large commercial printing enterprise in Philadelphia, using modern and innovative printing processes for Congressional documents, cards, bill heads, notes, checks, circulars, and catalogues in addition to embossed show cards, perfumery, fabric, wine and liquor labels, druggists' furniture, jar and drawer labels (see Library Co. of Philadelphia reference online for good background on the family and the business). They were adroit at spotting opportunities for the use of printing for advertising; the immense popularity of silent film and its stars was capitalized upon by the company by printing hand-held fans with the likenesses of male and female stars, which were in turn sold to distributors and on to the theaters and stationers where they were given away as promotion of feature films and also sold to enthusiasts - movie theater air conditioning had not yet arrived, hence these functional souvenirs. The group begins with a Ketterlinus letterhead typed form letter dated 1913 to Essanay Film Co. of Chicago asking for imagery of the leading man and lady for this purpose (fold lines, chipped, good condition); in 1915 the Selig Polyscope Co. on their letterhead to Ketterlinus, allowing the company to use an image on their "high class advertising fans" (closed tear, chipped); also in 1915 the American Film Manufacturing Co. gives rights and asks for samples of the fan (the back of this letterhead with black and white birds-eye-view illustration of the Flying "A" Studios and Laboratories at Santa Barbara, Calif., wear, very good condition); Ketterlinus also hired agents to acquire rights to use the stars' images and the rest of this group of material includes their correspondence with such an agent, Miss Alton Goodrich "Commissionaire for Artists Photographs for Advertisers" of 31 West 31st Street NY. Ketterlinus used different images over the years and were constantly updating their photographic stock - wanting "prominent stars," per their letter of 1919 to Miss Goodrich, who shared space with the S. Eddowes Co. Studios in NY; there are several lists, typed and handwritten of desirable images, Ketterlinus seeking photos of Mary Pickford, Ruth Roland, Douglas Fairbanks, Wallace Reid, Tom Mix and also directors D.W. Griffith and Thos. H. Ince. The research papers here sometimes indicating the home studio of the star; there is back-and-forth correspondence between Goodrich and Ketterlinus regarding the ease or difficulty in securing the photos, some of which are complicated by agreements and rights requirements - usually, Ketterlinus tried to secure unlimited rights and would not consent to limitations. Letters from Goodrich include her work for the company, information on images sent, billing and other details. Also a letter from Pathe Exchange in 1919 concerning Dolores Cassinelli and Virginia Pearson, and one on D.W. Griffith Repertory Season George M Cohan Theatre letterhead regarding Griffith and Lillian Gish imagery; another from Goldwyn Pictures Corp. and a letter from the Famous Players - Lasky Corp. who represented Paramount Pictures and Artcraft Pictures, regarding the fans; About ½ of the material concerns a copyright disagreement between Samuel Lumiere (1878-1971) Russian-American photographic portraitist, who specialized in showgirls and movie star stills with studios in NY and the Ketterlinus company. Lumiere was represented by the law firm of Almy, Van Gordon and Evans of NY who claimed that Alton Goodrich did not have permission to give the rights of use to Ketterlinus of Lumiere's photograph of silent-film star Ethel Clayton (1882 - 1966), alleging that Ketterlinus had printed fans without permission; the correspondence back and forth includes a note from the Library of Congress Copyright Office with a copy of the photograph in dispute -evidently Lumiere had sent the Office copies before the date of the lawsuit; Ketterlinus had to move quickly to alert their distributors, withdraw stock and reverse their position to avoid lengthy and expensive proceedings; An interesting case of artists copyright and infringement, involving the motion picture industry and the powerful printing establishment; notable for the early motion picture advertising use of photography and the position of Alton Goodrich as agent of the business - there is a mystery and ambiguity concerning Goodrich, only a small mention of a person of the same name noted as a (male) performer in an early film archive; Condition: some of the letter pages browned, poor paper stock; others with some soiling old fold lines, markings and comments by Ketterlinus office personnel; in good condition overall; an interesting group. . Manuscript. Not Bound. Very Good.

        The Pavilion on the Links [Signed]

      Chatto & Windus, 1913, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First edition. A Very Good copy of the first edition thus, first printing, first illustrated edition (minor handling soil, rubbing to the spine ends and corners, bump to the rear board's upper edge, illustration facing page 30 a bit proud -- lacking the scarce dust jacket), SIGNED BY ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON on a small clipped piece of paper affixed to the title page; a posthumously published work illustrated by Gordon Browne. The work first appeared in Cornhill Magazine (1880) in the form of a letter and testament. The work, told in nine chapters, was later included in Stevenson's "New Arabian Nights" (1882) without the introductory paragraph which appeared in the Cornhill and with a few other textual changes as well. Arthur Conan Doyle declared it to be "the high-water mark of [Stevenson's] genius" and "the first short story in the world'". The tale provided the basis for the 1920 silent film "The White Circle" starring Spottiswoode Aitken, Janice Wilson, Harry Northrup, and John Gilbert. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON on a small clipped piece of paper affixed to the title page.

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

      Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway System, New York 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"

Band der Reihe "Bibliothek der Philosophen", geleitet von Fritz Mauthner. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. 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. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

Eöthen: or traces of travel brought home grom the East by A.W. Kinglake. With an introduction by S.L. Bensusan and designs by Frank Brangwyn. London: Sampson Low, Marston & Co. Ltd., 1913.Edition de Luxe. One of 100 numbered copies signed by Brangwyn (of which this is number 88). Large quarto (1 1/4 x 9 inches; 286 x 228 mm.). 305, [1] pp. Twelve mounted plates, full-page black and white frontispiece, and thirty-one quarter-page black and white chapter headings. Publisher&#39;s quarter vellum over green buckram boards, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A near fine copy.Alexander William Kinglake&#39;s epic journey through the Ottoman Empire to Cairo, and his residence there as the plague tore through the city was undertaken by him in 1835. His account of the journey, which he entitled Eöthen was first published nine years later in 1844. Someone had once asked Winston Churchill&#146;s advice on how to improve his prose style. "Read Kinglake," said Churchill. The word Eöthen, means &#145;from the east&#146;, and the book describes the author&#146;s travels in what is now the Middle East. Apparently Churchill was right, in that Eöthen is easy to read and tells a gripping story. The title, as the author points out, is the hardest word in the book. There are 29 chapters, many of them indicating the places he went to, such as Constantinople, Cyprus, Cairo, Damascus, Palestine, The Dead Sea, Jerusalem, Egypt, and Lebanon.Sir Frank William BRANGWYN, R.A., R.W.S., R.B.A. (1867-1956) was an Anglo-Welsh artist, painter, water colorist, virtuoso engraver and illustrator, and progressive designer. Born in Bruges, Belgium where his father moved after winning a competition organized by the Belgian Guild of St. Thomas and St. Luke to design a parish church. In 1874 the family moved back to the United Kingdom. In 1936 Brangwyn presented Bruges with over 400 works, now in the Arents House Museum. In return the King of Belgium made Brangwyn Grand Officer of the Order of Leopold II, and Bruges made him Citoyen d&#39;Honneur de Bruges He was knighted in 1941. Brangwyn died on 11 June 1956 at his home in Sussex.

Eöthen: or traces of travel brought home grom the East by A.W. Kinglake. With an introduction by S.L. Bensusan and designs by Frank Brangwyn. London: Sampson Low, Marston & Co. Ltd., 1913.Edition de Luxe. One of 100 numbered copies signed by Brangwyn (of which this is number 88). Large quarto (1 1/4 x 9 inches; 286 x 228 mm.). 305, [1] pp. Twelve mounted plates, full-page black and white frontispiece, and thirty-one quarter-page black and white chapter headings. Publisher's quarter vellum over green buckram boards, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A near fine copy.Alexander William Kinglake's epic journey through the Ottoman Empire to Cairo, and his residence there as the plague tore through the city was undertaken by him in 1835. His account of the journey, which he entitled Eöthen was first published nine years later in 1844. Someone had once asked Winston Churchill?'s advice on how to improve his prose style. "Read Kinglake," said Churchill. The word Eöthen, means ?'from the east?', and the book describes the author?'s travels in what is now the Middle East. Apparently Churchill was right, in that Eöthen is easy to read and tells a gripping story. The title, as the author points out, is the hardest word in the book. There are 29 chapters, many of them indicating the places he went to, such as Constantinople, Cyprus, Cairo, Damascus, Palestine, The Dead Sea, Jerusalem, Egypt, and Lebanon.Sir Frank William BRANGWYN, R.A., R.W.S., R.B.A. (1867-1956) was an Anglo-Welsh artist, painter, water colorist, virtuoso engraver and illustrator, and progressive designer. Born in Bruges, Belgium where his father moved after winning a competition organized by the Belgian Guild of St. Thomas and St. Luke to design a parish church. In 1874 the family moved back to the United Kingdom. In 1936 Brangwyn presented Bruges with over 400 works, now in the Arents House Museum. In return the King of Belgium made Brangwyn Grand Officer of the Order of Leopold II, and Bruges made him Citoyen d'Honneur de Bruges He was knighted in 1941. Brangwyn died on 11 June 1956 at his home in Sussex.

        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]

        ANTARCTIC DAYS Sketches of the homely side of Polar life by two of Shackleton's men.

      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. Bound in original woven blue cloth with gilt and black lettering [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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.
