        [Archive]: 18 Real Photo Postcards of the West Side Camping Club in Guard, Maryland

      Guard, Maryland: West Side Camping Club. 1913-1914. 18 sepia-toned real photo postcards. Some modest fading to a few of the cards, a few have been mailed, overall near fine. A splendid group of photographs of a bunch of cheerful knuckleheads at a private hunting club in Guard, Maryland, where apparently, according to a 1914 Forest and Stream article, they specialized in hunting (and occasionally eating) groundhogs. The images feature about 20 prosperous but casually dressed white men in a tent encampment with a cook shed emblazoned with the letters W.S.C.C. and various semi-humorous signs, and manned by a black cook in white chef's outfit. In one image, one gentleman on the left pretends to play a frying pan like a banjo, while on the right another gentleman pretends to shave the neck of a sleeping man with a hand scythe, while the cook stands in the middle with knife and frying pan, looking not terribly amused. In other images the various men lounge around camp, and in a series of four images, a group of hunting dogs attack what appears to be a groundhog pelt. The few that are postmarked are postmarked in August of either 1913 or 1914, all from Guard, Maryland (about which we can find nothing!) .

        [PHOTO ALBUM OF A 1913 VACATION CRUISE THROUGH THE CARIBBEAN, TITLED:] THE WEST INDIES AND PANAMA MARCH AND APRIL, 1913

      [Various Caribbean locations. March and April, 1913].. Title leaf and sixty-six silver gelatin photographs, all approx. 3 1/4 x 5 1/2, with printed captions mounted near photos, and occasional sectional titles with explanatory text. 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 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.

Illustrated with 91 photographs by Arnold Genthe, printed at the Plimpton Press; ix, [1], 208, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Inscribed to Photo-engraver and Collector Edward Epstean. An important work of documentary and ethnographic photography, " ... one of the first and most important examples of the candid-camera approach to documentary photography" (Parr/Badger I). INSCRIBED to Edward Epstean, "whose knowledge and patience are responsible for the excellent reproductions of my Chinatown pictures" and SIGNED ("Arnold Genthe, December 1912"). Epstean (1868-1945) was a pioneering photo-engraver and collector who assembled one of the greatest libraries on the history and science of photography. Though not formally credited in this book, it must be assumed by Genthe's inscription that Epstean was responsible for the book's stunning half-tone reproductions - so rich in tone and detail that they approach the quality of photogravures.

New York: Mitchell Kennerley, 1913.Second and Best Edition of Arnold Genthe's photographs of the old Chinatown of San Francisco, with over 70 plates showing daily life in Chinatown. "His work stands on the borderline between reportage and investigation... [In San Francisco] he fell under the spell of Chinatown and began documenting the exotic life and customs he found there. The people he stalked were unaware of a photographer's presence, for he used a very small hand camera and so obtained pictures straight from life. Inquisitive and fascinated, he overlooked no detail of the architectural setting, no gesture of workmen and shopkeepers, no characteristic attitude" (Jean-Luc Daval, Photography: History of an Art p. 113 with reproduction).

        In Powder and Crinoline

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, [1913]. Old Fairy Tales Retold. Quarto. Original full green vellum, front cover and spine lettered and pictorially stamped in gilt, pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt, others uncut, green silk ties. With 26 tipped-in colour plates on grey paper. Ties loose, ends and corners lightly rubbed, some fading to spine and somewhat to rear board, a few small marks and scratches to covers, endpapers spotted and tanned but internally quite clean, still a very good copy, sound and attractive. Signed limited edition, one of 500 numbered copies signed by Kay Nielsen, this copy unnumbered, and from the library (with the illustrated bookplate, dated 1915) of the prolific English author Edward Frederick Benson (1867-1940). E. F. Benson is principally remembered for his six camp upper-class social comedy novels known as the Mapp & Lucia series (1920-39), though he wrote much else besides, including ghost stories and fantasy works for children. Benson wrote a number of titles for Hodder & Stoughton during the First World War, which may explain his ownership of a copy as a gift from the publishers (a theory borne out by this copy being unnumbered) - moreover, given his tastes, Benson would have thoroughly enjoyed Quiller-Couch's In Powder & Crinoline, illustrated with both high-camp wit and beautiful (if somewhat etiolated) delicacy by Kay Nielsen.

      British Columbia Historical Association, British Columbia, 1913, Full-Leather, Book Condition: Very Fine, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket as Issued, Limited Edition, SignedSize: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall, Number 216 of only 350 signed copies of this full leather-bound edition. Signed by co-author R.E. Gosnell. "Few publications, if any, of similar size and excellence have been produced in Canada..." - From Editor's Foreward. Part One is made up of 210 pages and eighteen chapters which constitute "... a survey of events from the earliest times down to the Union of the Crown Colony of British Columbia with the Dominion of Canada." Part Two is "... a history, mainly political and economic, of the Province since Confederation up to the present time." Part One is preceded by dozens of tissue-protected black and white portraits of individuals influential in the early history of the province, complete with their brief biographies upon the tissue. Part One is likewise followed by dozens of tissue-protected portraits of "Leading men in judicial and other capacities." Part Two is comprised of eighteen chapters over 226 pages, plus 5 pages of addenda. This part is again followed by dozens of tissue protected portraits of "Some of the men conspicuous as present day factors in development." Top edge gilt. Embossed decorations upon front board and back strip. Crisp gilt lettering upon backstrip. Marbled endpapers. Unread. Exceptionally clean, bright, and unmarked with no wear. Handsome suede leather exterior appears virtually as fresh as the day it was applied over 90 years ago. More a historical monument than a book, this majestic tome (over 14lb in weight and measuring 13" high by 10.5" wide by almost 4" thick) is ideally suited to life as a library showpiece or as a magnificent gift, particularly to a British Columbian of distinction. The vintage and exceedingly fine condition of this copy easily rank it as one of the most impressive volumes we have ever offered.

        THE DISCOVERY OF ISOTOPES] ‘Some Further Applications of the Method of Positive Rays’

      Royal Institution, London 1913 - SEPARATE PAMPHLET (AND TRUE FIRST) PUBLICATION OF THOMSON’S DISCOVERY OF ISOTOPES. On Friday, January 17th, 1913, Thomson delivered this lecture to the Royal Institution. The photographs of deflected neon ions shown in the lecture and published here revealed an anomoly, the explanation of which constituted the discovery of isotopes (elements with variant atomic masses). Thomson’s student F.W. Aston subsequently discovered the isotopes of many elements. The importance of this discovery was immense: the development of nuclear energy relied upon it, as did the radioactive dating of rocks and organic material. This scarce pamphlet is in pristine condition: the stitched binding is holding firm and all pages are clean and bright (it has no covers, as issued). One of the landmarks of Thomson’s career, and a turning-point in the history of physics. [Attributes: First Edition]

        On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules, I-III.

      Taylor & Francis, London 1913 - Extremely rare author’s presentation offprints of his great trilogy, which constitutes the birth of modern atomic physics. "Bohr’s three-part paper postulated the existence of stationary states of an atomic system whose behavior could be described using classical mechanics, while the transition of the system from one stationary state to another would represent a non-classical process accompanied by emission or absorption of one quantum of homogeneous radiation, the frequency of which was related to its energy by Planck’s equation" (Norman).In his previous paper (‘On the Theory of Decrease of Velocity of Moving Electrified Particles on passing through Matter’) Bohr had adopted Rutherford’s nuclear model of the atom, and had become convinced that it was the peripheral electrons that determined the chemical properties of an element, whereas the nucleus determine the radioactive properties. However, Rutherford’s model had an apparent explanatory problem: Why were the negatively charged electrons held away from the positive nucleus? In his doctoral dissertation on the electron theory of metals, Bohr had clarified the limitations of this theory, in particular its ability to explain magnetic properties, and he had shown how this arose from the classical nature of some of its foundations. Bohr strongly expected that the key to solving this problem was to be found in some way of introducing Planck’s law of quantum action. In the beginning of 1913 Bohr heard about Rydberg’s remarkable discovery in spectroscopy. Rydberg’s formula could represent the frequencies of the lines of the hydrogen spectrum in the simplest form in terms of two integers. As soon as Bohr saw this formula, he immediately recognized that it gave him the missing clue to the correct way to introduce Planck’s law of quantum of action into the description of the atomic systems. The rest of the academic year was spent reconstructing the whole theory upon the new foundation and expounding it in a large treatise, which was immediately published as these three papers in the ‘Philosophical Magazine’. It was in these papers that Bohr first gave his postulates of the orbital structure of the electrons and their quantized radiation. Bohr’s atomic theory inaugurated two of the most adventurous decades in the history of science. In 1922 Bohr was awarded the Nobel Prize "for his services in the investigation of the structure of atoms and of the radiation emanating from them". Three parts. 8vo: (217 x 141 mm). Sewn in original orange wrappers; first and second parts blank, third printed (as issued), third part with printed title, front wrapper of part 1 nearly loose and front wrapper of part 2 starting. First part inscribed in Bohr’s hand ‘Fra Forfatteren’ (From the author), second and third part with his rubberstamp ‘Fra Forfatteren’. A fine, completely unrestored, and coherent set, all three with numbering to the upper left corner of the front wrappers, from the library of the Danish chemist Prof. Einar Biilmann (1873-1946).

The colors of the DJ front panel remain particularly strong. Together with the sporting section from two issues (June 30th & July 1st, 1910, four pages each) of the San Francisco Chronicle leading up to the 1910 Johnson-Jeffries fight. Both issues are in Good condition with toning, tears and each single sheet folded three times. The July 1st, 1910 issue has two photos of Jack London and carries his story and thoughts leading up to the championship match. This copy of The Abysmal Brute is in the "Variant binding...stamped in black and green", Ahearn, 054b. A prizefighting story likely inspired by the great Johnson-Jeffries boxing match (his June 27th, 1910 New York Herald article states "Fighter with the quality of the 'Abysmal brute' will win the great battle...") where London reported on the buildup to and championship fight between, Johnson and Jeffries for the Heavyweight Championship of the World in Reno, Nevada. Johnson was the first black man to win the coveted title and on this challenge, knocked Jefferies down three times in the fourteenth round before his corner threw in the towel. The outcome of the fight triggered race riots that evening - the Fourth of July - all across the United States. The 1936 film "Conflict" is an American film based on The Abysmal Brute, staring John Wayne. Ref. Johnson p. 319; Sisson & Martens p. 70; Woodbridge, 109, 1000 & 1004; Wikipedia.
