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."

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.

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" .

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."

      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 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 publisher's dark green cloth, with blind-tooled image depicting mountainous region, and titles in like. Titles and borders to spine coloured in silver.

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.

        PRINCESS BADOURA: A Tale from the Arabian Nights Retold by Laurence Housman

      London Hodder and Stoughton [1913] - First edition. With 10 fantastic tipped-in colour plates by Edmund Dulac, each with a captioned and decorated tissue guard, decorated titlepage and with Persian style border to each page of text. 4to, publisher's original white cloth lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt and turquoise on the upper cover and spine, decorative "peacock" endpapers in turquoise. [iv], 113 pp. An unusually well preserved, lovely, bright copy of this elusive book. Some very minimal evidence of age, the plates all very fine, the text very clean. FIRST EDITION AND A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THIS WONDERFUL BOOK. Dulac's love of the oriental style is never more apparent than in these illustrations, perfectly suited to the story of a Princess of China and the Island Prince. His luxurious use of color and line carries his audience away into the exotic. The book is especially important in Dulac’s oeuvre as it marked a change unprecedented for Dulac. "There was now no single position from which an observer could view the entire scene; he must move about within the picture in order to see everything. Dulac began simplifying the elements which make up a picture and turned them into stylized units,.all arranged so as to make up a composition which carried the eye round the painting. To give variety to these compositional units Dulac adopted the Persian emphasis on heavily patterned surfaces, as in an illustration where a robber’s baggy trousers, with an elaborate motif, are used as a flat decorative unit that happens to be trouser shaped. The jeweled dots.are now used by Dulac to make deliberate patterns." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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." Manuela Schwartz and G.W. Hopkins in Grove Music Online.

        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.

        320 Shoe Designs by the Dunbar Style Service.

      Dunbar Pattern Co. 1913-16 - 320 high quality lithographic shoe designs all but 9 with printed collection name, date, and style number, 240 printed on embossed cream card, 35 x 27cm, and 80 printed on cream card, 21.5 x 33cm, tipped on to printed green card, 30.5 x 42cm; some occasional dusting & marking with pin holes to central upper & lower margins of approx 1/3 of designs, pencil & ink annotations to a few designs. Overall, v.g. clean & bright. All plates are loose & contained in 4 black sheepskin buttoned folders inscribed in white ?Dunbar Pattern Co. Inc. Style Service .?; all folders are somewhat worn but sound. A remarkably well preserved collection of shoe style lines by the Dunbar Style Service, part of the Dunbar Pattern Co., a footwear design and manufacturing company based in Boston but also with locations in, Brockton, St. Louis and Cincinnati. The designs, a small number of which are annotated, and approximately a third of which have been pinned up for display, are likely to have belonged to a travelling salesman working for the company and responsible for selling existing and forthcoming shoe styles. The collection includes 80 styles from the Spring and Summer Collection 1913, 47 from Fall and Winter 1913, 44 from Spring and Summer 1914, 54 from Fall and Winter 1914, 61 from Spring and Summer 1915 and 25 from Spring and Summer 1916. There are an additional 9 plates that have style numbers but are without a collection name or date. The Dunbar Style Service was the publisher of Footwear Style Trend, a trade magazine of which only volume I, number 3 (January 1913) is recorded. ?Style?, the issue begins, ?may be defined as a quality of distinction and correct style, or style in vogue, must possess a pleasing quality of distinction, otherwise it will not find favor with the public and thereby cease to be correct? As relating to footwear, style was determined by the ?style man? in the factory. ?Correct style?, it continues, ?is the supreme selling factor in the better grades of footwear; therefore the men in the factory who get up the sample line each season should be keen to correctly gauge the demands of fashion? New designs were not always assigned to a particular season, with companies often sending out sample designs to their salesmen between seasons ?thus enabling him to secure additional business with a style that is up to the minute? The 9 plates without collection names or dates are examples of such ?between season? style lines. ?It is very evident? the Footwear Style Trend concludes, ?that style value contributes largely to a successful season with both manufacturer and merchant; it is a vital element that commands the closest study of present and advance season styles - the manufacturer must be thoroughly informed regarding correct style in order that his samples possess that saleable quality - the merchant must be confident that his stock carries correct style and that his buying is a logical conclusion from his study of style conditions? In the 1910s both men and women often wore shoes up to a whole size too small for them in order to have an appearance of (supposed) better breeding and gentility. Women wore boots during the day and the court shoe with a small Louis heel in the evenings, often embellished with embroidery or metallic thread and glass or jet beading on the toes. Dunbar?s autumn and winter season designs are almost entirely made up of boots with the spring and summer seasons including a mixture of boots, pumps and sandals with more elaborate embellishments and style names including the Ladies Raglan Blucher Boot, Hesitation Pump, Patent Colt Colonial Pump, Two Button Instep Sandal, Patent Colt Four Button Oxford, The ?Boardwalk? Colonial, Sensation Sandal, &c. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
