        The TIK - TOK MAN Of OZ. Cort Theatre. Limited Engagement, Beginning Monday Night, April 21, 1913

      San Francisco:: Allied Printing,. [1913].. 14-1/2" x 5-3/4". 1st printing. Single sheet broadside.. Modest edgewear & age-toning to paper. Prior owner pencil note in. upper left corner: "Family Party / Edgar [?] / May 3rd 1913". A VG. copy.. A extremely rare survivor of Baum's second theatrical effort, The TIK-TOK MAN Of OZ, the libretto of which is "derived from Baum's 1907 Oz book, Ozma of Oz, with additional characters from The Road to Oz (1909) and a major scene adapted from Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz (1908)." ... "The show was a hit on the West Coast ..." opening March 31, 1914, at LA's Majestic Theatre. The show toured through the West & Midwest through early 1914, though never making Broadway, primarily due to Morosco's withdrawal of support. [Beinvenue. COLLECTORS GUIDE To BAUM & OZ, pp 55 - 57]. We find no record of any other surviving posters from this San Francisco production, and a survey of auction records & other on-line sources indicate just one other TIK-TOK MAN Of OZ performance playbill survives... that from Dec 2, at the Babcock Theatre in Billings MT, which came from the Fred M. Meyer collection of L. Frank Baum, an image of which can be seen on the International Wizard of OZ Club website. . See p. 57, of Beinvenue's book on Baum, for a photographic image of the San Francisco cast.

        Ferdinando Bertelli's Trachtenbuch

      Ullmann, Zwickau 1913 - 60 S. ; 8°, Pappband, Neudr. d. Ausg. Venedig 1563, Zwickauer Facsimiledrucke ; Nr. 17. Einband angestaubt und verschmutzt, Seiten nachgedunkelt mit leichtem Wasserrand am Vorderschnitt. Dies ist eine Facsimilie-Ausgabe eines der ersten Kostüm- bzw. Trachtenbücher der Welt. Das erste dieser Art ist 1562 erschienen. Verantwortlich dafür zeichnete Francois Despresz. Ein Jahr später zog Bertelli mit seinem Buch "Omnium fere gentium nostrae aetatis habitus, nunquam antehac aediti" (hier schlicht Trachtenbuch) nach. Beide benutzten Kostümstiche von Enea Vico als Vorlage. Nicht weniger als 12 Trachtenbücher erschienen im 16. Jahrhundert, nahezu alle heutzutage äußerst selten im Original noch erhalten. Dieses hier von Bertelli verlegte und gestochene Trachtenbuch war ein Quartband mit 60 blattgroßen Kupferstichen. Fast alle tragen auf einem an einem Baumstumpf hängenden Täfelchen eine erklärende Beischrift. Begleittext, Vorrede oder Widmungsschreiben fehlen gänzlich, womit jede Angabe über Herkunft der Abbildungen leider schmerzlich vermisst wird.

Small ink-stamp to the upper wrap, minor chipping, but overall a very good copy. First Edition of this key work for understanding the tactics employed by Nelson in the battle and extremely hard to find in such fresh condition. The committee was set up to question the conclusions of Corbett's Campaign of Trafalgar in 1910, but after a close study of original logs and journals, contemporary battle-plans and signal books, and published works such as Desbrière's magisterial account of 1907, the committee more or less concurred with his findings. The committee comprised of Admiral Sir Cyprian Bridge, Admiral Sir Reginald Custance, the chairman, historian and Admiralty secretary C. H. Firth, and W. G. Perrin, Admiralty librarian and the man who in 1908 had discovered the original signal books employed at Trafalgar.

        A Boy's Will

      David Nutt, London 1913 - FIRST EDITION, in the extremely rare first-issue binding ("binding A"), of Robert Frost's first book of poetry. "By 1911 Frost was fighting against discouragement. Poetry had always been considered a young person's game, but Frost, who was nearly 40 years old, had not published a single book of poems and had seen just a handful appear in magazines. In 1911 ownership of the Derry farm passed to Frost. A momentous decision was made: to sell the farm and use the proceeds to make a radical new start in London, where publishers were perceived to be more receptive to new talent. Accordingly, in August 1912 the Frost family sailed across the Atlantic to England. Frost carried with him sheaves of verses he had written but not gotten into print. English publishers in London did indeed prove more receptive to innovative verse, and, through his own vigorous efforts and those of the expatriate American poet Ezra Pound, Frost within a year had published A Boy's Will (1913). From this first book, such poems as 'Storm Fear,' 'Mowing,' and 'The Tuft of Flowers' have remained standard anthology pieces" (Britannica). London: David Nutt, 1913. Octavo, original bronzed brown cloth with upper cover title in gilt. A little fading to spine, otherwise fine. RARE. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

These specialized maps were prepared for the exclusive use of fire insurance companies and underwriters. Daniel Alfred Sanborn (1827-1883), a young surveyor from Somerville, Massachusetts, was engaged in 1866 by the Aetna Insurance Company to prepare insurance maps for several cities in Tennessee. Before working for Aetna, Sanborn conducted surveys and compiled an atlas of the city of Boston titled Insurance Map of Boston, Volume 1, 1867, believed to include the earliest insurance maps published by Sanborn. The success of the Boston atlas and the commission from Aetna must have impressed the young surveyor with the importance of detailed and specialized maps for the fire insurance industry. Following his assignment in Tennessee for Aetna, he established the D. A. Sanborn National Insurance Diagram Bureau in New York City in l867. From this modest beginning grew the specialized company that has compiled and published maps for the fire insurance industry for more than a hundred years. D.A. Sanborn died in 1883. The company he founded, however, continued to grow and still exists today. Sanborn was headquartered in Pelham, New York, but had regional offices in San Francisco, Chicago and Atlanta. The Sanborn Company sent out legions of surveyors to record the building footprints and relevant details about these buildings in all major urbanized areas regarding their fire liability. It was because of these details and the accuracy of the Sanborn maps, coupled with the Sanborn Company’s standardized symbolization and aesthetic appeal that made the Sanborn Company so successful and their maps so widely utilized. The Sanborn maps themselves are large-scale lithographed street plans at a scale of 50 feet to one inch on 21 inch by 25 inch sheets of paper. The maps were created in volumes, bound and then updated until the subsequent volume was produced. Larger cities such as San Francisco have multiple volumes. In between volumes, updates (new drawings of new or altered buildings or lots) were created and sent out to be pasted on top of the old maps (referred to as ‘slips’) to reduce expense and preserve accuracy. The volumes contain an enormous amount of information. They are organized as follows: a decorative title page, an index of streets and addresses, a ‘specials’ index with the names of churches, schools, businesses etc., and a master index indicating the entirety of the mapped area and the sheet numbers for each large-scale map (us [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Study of Maya Art, Its Subject Matter and Historical Development

      Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology, Cambridge 1913 - Based on Spinden's 1909 doctoral thesis at Harvard and here Published as Volume VI of the Peabody Museum's Memoirs, this is the seminal study of Maya art and archaeology. Spinden was the first to study the range of Maya art, delineate its subject matter, and identify themes and motifs within the art and architecture of Maya society, including religious and philosophical ideas and calendrical notations. Probably the most important single volume ever published on the Maya. This copy is rebound in green buckram, and extra-annotated and illustrated in at least two hands. A (bookseller's?) note on the front free endpaper suggests the possibility that the annotations were those of the author, and indeed many of them seem to be of the type that an author would do if he were preparing a revised edition of his book. Some of the annotations correct errors in the earlier text, while others add new drawings, commentary or analysis, presumably based on information not available at the time of original publication. No revised edition of A Study of Maya Art was ever produced, however, so there is no corrected or updated text against which to compare this. Spinden, after gaining his PhD at Harvard, became the Assistant Curator of Anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and from there went on to become the Curator of Mexican Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard's Peabody Museum, perhaps the most prestigious post in the country for a Mayanist. Spinden also developed a widely accepted correlation between the Maya calendar and the Western calendar, which was called into question by J. Eric S. Thompson, the British Mayanist. The controversy got heated, and Spinden spent much of the rest of his time devoted to the Maya defending his correlation. It may be this controversy that pre-empted a new edition of his classic study. Thompson's correlation, or one or two days off from it -- Spinden's and Thompson's were 260 years apart -- is widely accepted today, although the issue is not without controversy even now. In any case, this is an extra-annotated copy of the first important work of Maya scholarship and, by all appearances, a unique copy. A bit of wear to the edges of the cloth, overall near fine.

        THREE INSCRIBED JACK LONDON BOOKS and PHOTO

      Regent Press, Macmillian, NY 1913 - Three books, all of which are reprints, 2 Regeant Press, one Macmillian. Signed to Peter William Putnam Bluett, an engineer whom London stayed with in Hawaii. Bluett engineered the Kohala Ditch that brought water from the high ground of Hawaii to the cane fields there. He is mentioned in Charmian London's biography of Jack. A copy of a letter from his grand-daughter explaining the origin of these books comes with the books. All the books have been rebacked (see the photo), South Sea Tales is rebacked without its spine (please see the photos). The inscriptions were done in 1916 about three months before Jack London's death in January 1916. There is a photo of Jack and Charmian London tipped into Love of Life which is dated 1915 and signed by both Charmian London and Jack London. The corner of the bottom right is missing, not affecting Jack's signature (see photo). The three books come with a folding box as shown that has some light silverfishing on the surface, but not bad (please see the photos). Books are tight and still readable and in good condition. Note: At Bonham’s & Butterfields auction house in California on June 25th several years ago-lot 3297- another reprint book (Regeant Press LOST FACE) in similar condition inscribed to Bluett sold for $5000. The book shown here, Lost Face, is a 1910 second printing and contains Jack's most famous short story "To Build A Fire." Also has a small photo of Charmian on a horse, dated 1917. This is probably something that she gave Bluett after Jack's death, and was pasted in. Shown in the photos is the third inscribed book to Bluett "South Sea Tales."
