        Mother Goose the Old Nursery Rhymes.

      1913 - Coloured frontispieceand twelve coloured plates with tissue guards, black and white illustrations in the text, First edition, limited to eleven hundred and thirty copies, signed by the illustrator, large 4to., recently rebound in full green crushed goatskin gilt, Mother Goose pictorially gilt to the upper board, spine with 5 raised bands with single gilt rules and gilt dotted lines, t.e.g., others untrimmed, marbled endpapers, signed by The Chelsea Bindery. Heinemann, London. One very small dent to the top board, small ink stain to the back board, the limitation leaf a touch foxed, still a fine copy in an excellent modern binding, loosely inserted a printed flyer for an exhibition at the Leicester Galleries in 1913 which included the original watercolours for this edition, for which Rackham himself chose which of the rhymes to print. The origins of Mother Goose and her Nursery Rhymes are still debated, many crediting Charles Perrault with their first use. The English publisher John Newbery is credited with their first appearance in English, although no copy exists. Among the many and varied illustrated editions of these Rhymes, few have so entered the public consciousness as well as Rackham's. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Palestine. Founded on the Survey of the Palestine Exploration Fund.

      [Dated and signed in the cast], M. Parsons, 1913. Cast copper relief map of Palestine and parts of Lebanon and Syria, stretching from Beirut in the north, to Gaza in the south, and Hauran via Bashan to the east. 20 x 37 x 1cm, a key, and place names. Based on a map by the Palestine Exploration Fund (possibly Armstrong's "Relief Map" of 1909), this was made by M. Parsons in 1913 as indicated bottom left (PEF also made a photo relief map in 1907). Two sets of nuts and bolts to the back suggest this was intended to be affixed to a wall as a plaque. The Palestine Exploration Fund was established in 1865 by Arthur Stanley and George Grove under the patronage of Queen Victoria as a secular organisation 'to promote research into the archaeology and history, manners and customs and culture, topography, geology and natural sciences of biblical Palestine and the Levant' (PEF). Its illustrious list of associates includes George Armstrong, Charles Wilson, Charles Warren, Claude Conder, Kitchener, Gottlieb Schumacher, WF Petrie, Leonard Woolley, T.E. Lawrence, Schumacher, John Garstang among many others. Of these, Conder and Kitchener among others conducted the Survey of Western Palestine during 1871-78. 'Senior Fund officials, first and foremost among them George Armstrong, saw in the creation of relief maps and their sale to schools, churches, and other institutions a means of spreading precise geographic knowledge about Jerusalem and the Holy Land and of fulfilling one of the central objectives of the PEF' (Rubin, Relief Maps and Models in the Archives of The Palestine Exploration Fund, in Palestine Exploration Quarterly, 138, 1 (2006), 43-63, not knowing about this map). Although the provenance of this map is not known, we believe it is more likely to have been made for one of the PEF's members or associates. A school or church would be less likely as its size is too small to display effectively to classrooms or congregations, and such institutions might have found the plaster versions (such as the huge plaster relief in the PEF's own collection) much more suitable for viewing. - A unique and intriguing item.

        Venturesome Voyages of Capt. Voss.

      Yokohama, Japan Herald Press for Geiser & Gilbert in Tokyo, 1913. 8vo. Original red cloth, lettered and ornamented in gilt; pp. xiv, [2], 394, [2, Japanese colophon], with portrait, colour-printed map of Cocos Island, folding colour-printed world map and 14 plates; cloth a little marked; text with occasional marginal spotting, otherwise a good copy; provenance: contemporary ownership inscription inside front cover, Probsthain's bookshop label and their stamp to title. Scarce first edition of the narrative of one of the most unusual circumnavigations of the world: in a dug-out canoe, the Tilikum, purchased by the German-Canadian captain Voss from first nation Americans on Vancouver Island. The adventurous captain tells of other journeys, including one to Cocos Island in search of treasure, in extremely small vessels. However, the Tilikum journey is a remarkable achievement and the 12m vessel, built in the early 19th century is now on display in the Maritime Museum of British Columbia. Losely inserted: A probably contemporary drawing of the Tilikum, a 1926 extract from a yachting journal with illustration of the elevation and section of the vessel, and a paper cutting about the Cocos Island treasure.

Limited to 500 copies (this copy being No. 40), numbered and signed by the artist. Large quarto (12 x 9 7/8 inches; 305 x 252 mm.). [2, limitation leaf], xii, [13]-163, [1] pp. Inserted title and twenty-six mounted color plates on gray paper with descriptive tissue-guards.

Two blue morocco labels lettered in gilt. Matching patterned endpapers, top edge gilt. Housed in a white cardboard slipcase (repaired) with the original limited edition box label printed in black and red.A fine example of a mid 1920s binding by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, very similar to the bindings used for The Golden Cockerel Press Troilus and Criseyde (1927) and The Canterbury Tales (1929-31).Danish illustrator and designer Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) "was drawn early on to fairy tales and illustrated many volumes for Hodder & Stoughton: In Powder and Crinoline (1913), East of the Sun, West of the Moon (1914), Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales (drawings completed in 1912, but first published in 1924), Hansel and Gretel (1925), and Red Magic (Jonathan Cape, 1930), a collections of fairy tales from around the world. Nielsen's designs unite strong linearity with delicate colouring?Characterized by a sense of two-dimensional flatness, Nielsen's objects and people are highly stylized: foxglove blossoms hang in measured asymmetry; princes and princesses stand on improbably long legs; and their garments billow in gravity-defying parabolas. The power of his illustrations lies in his uncanny ability to retrieve a story's emotional effect on its reader and to recreate it visually in two dimensions" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch (1863-1944), "English critic, writer, and compiler of Cornish descent who published under the pseudonym 'Q'. Among his many anthologies, Quiller-Couch put together three collections of fairy tales. In 1895 he published Fairy Tales Far and Near Re-told, with illustrations by H.R. Millar. For his The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales from the Old French Re-told (1910), illustrated by Edmund Dulac, Quiller-Couch translated and retold tales by Charles Perrault ('Bluebeard', 'Cinderella', and 'Sleeping Beauty') and Mme de Villeneuve ('Beauty and the Beast') taken from the French Cabinet des fées (1785-9). His third collection, In Powder and Crinoline: Old Fairy Tales Retold (1913), illustrated by Kay Nielsen, includes a version of 'The Twelve Dancing Princesses'" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).The Fairy Tales:Minon-MinetteFelicia or The Pot of PinksThe Twelve Dancing PrincessesRosanie or The Inconstant PrinceThe Man Who Never LaughedJohn and the GhostsThe Czarina's Violet.

      No place, [8 October 1913]. - 8vo. 2½ pp. on bifolium. Letter to a comrade who had contacted her with publishing questions, in part (translated): "This poem is hardly suitable for publication. I would advise - if your time allows for it - to read our classic writings: Lassalle, Engels and Marx; you would certainly find many ideas and viewpoints. Right now, your essay to me seems to be based on solely warm feelings instead of clear concepts. That may also derive from the poetic form (of the essay). Having said that, I would be very pleased if you continued to dedicate yourself with the same enthusiasm to our good cause of socialism [ ]". - In fine condition, with a fragile central mailing fold, mild soiling, and a few pencil notations. Accompanied by three unsigned postcard photos.

Member of "The Most Eminent Order of the Indian Empire" as Knight Commander (KCIE), and Fellow of British Academy. He made four major expeditions to Central Asia in 1900, 1906-1908, 1913-1916 and 1930. His greatest discovery was made at Mogao Caves, also known as "Caves of the Thousand Buddhas", near Dunhuang in 1907. The Stein collection (mostly manuscripts and other relics) has been placed in the British Library, the British Museum, and partly to the Srinagar Museum and the National Museum in New Delhi. Spine damaged, cover chipped. Paper is wavy at lower edge. Overall in very good condition. In publisher's printed wrappers First edition. Inscribed by Stein. With the photographic portrait of Duka on frontispiece. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Letters from C.R.T.

      no place: no publisher, 1913, circa. Blue cloth with gilt title on spine. 173 pp., few bw illustrations. Research indicates strongly that C.R.T. is Clayton R. Truesdale, or Dr. Clayton R. Truesdale from Fremont, Ohio. The letters published in this book were written between Nov. 18, 1911 and June 8, 1912. They were addressed to various relatives and give extensive testimony to his observations throughout Europe and the Middle East during this time period. On page 99, one letter is signed C.R. Truesdale. Further poking around the internet reveals a homeopathic physician in Fremont, Ohio by the name Clayton R. Truesdale. The letters are fascinating and filled with detail. Truesdale did not care for Roosevelt one iota, as made clear in the last letter published, wherein he also says he will tell the recipient many more details when soon he sees them face-to-face. Certainly published in small quantity for private circulation, the book is dedicated to his cousin John R. Packard who it seems, accompanied Truesdale on this trip. Judging from the picture on page 163 in front of Saint Marks feeding pigeons, both men brought along their wives. No copies found. Anywhere. VG.

        Handmade book]: The Rhyme of the Cruise of the Pandora II and her Merry Crew of Rustythroats, August, 1915 [cover title]: "Stats" Vance, Chief Engineer: His Souvenir

      - A souvenir book created by Wizard of Oz artist John R. Neill for Arthur T. Vance, editor of the Pictorial Review, containing seven original illustrations by Neill and five photographs of the cruise. Five quarto sheets folded to make 20 pages. Approximately 7.5" x 11". A handsome homemade souvenir "book," created from stiff gray paper, folded, and bound with a blue ribbon tie.The cover is illustrated with a caricature of the Chief and lettered by Neill in pastels and ink. Laid down on the inside of the cover is a printed broadside: "Rhyme of the Cruise of Pandora II.," along with a list of the six men on board. The crew consisted of "Little John" R. Neill, Chef-extraordinaire; "Big John" W. Mitchell, Gunner's Mate; "Demi-John" R. Robinson, Jack of All Trades; "Thirsty Bill" Miller, Head Bartender; "Strats" [presumably the "Stats" (sic) of the front cover] Vance, Chief Engineer; and "Father" Vance, Captain and General Influence for Good.John R. Neill was the children's book and magazine illustrator who was tapped to replace W.W. Denslow as illustrator of the series of Oz books created by L. Frank Baum. Denslow and Baum had a falling out after the first book, and Neill's work came to be synonymous with the series. The owner of the Pandora II, Arthur T. Vance, was Commodore of the Port Washington Yacht Club on Long Island. As editor of the Pictorial Review, a leading women's magazine of the early 20th Century based in New York City, Vance employed Neill to create numerous illustrations for Vance's magazine between 1913 and 1928. He must have prevailed upon Neill to create this souvenir book for Vance's son, recalling adventures on the Vance yacht.The remainder of the book consists of five tipped-in photos of the crew, as well as seven original illustrations by Neill in various media: pen, ink, pencil, watercolor, and gouache. Except for the cover illustration (which is executed directly on the cover card stock), the other seven illustrations are approximately 5" x 6.75" on white paper stock and have been tipped onto the pages. The corners of the illustrations display some light bleed-through from the glue used to affix them, else the book is very near fine. Two of the illustrations have captions penned in the margins, "August 9th, 1915, after the Commodore," and "When Shelter Island needed Shelter."The drawings are largely humorous and whimsical. The Shelter Island illustration shows a misfiring of a small cannon salute from the Pandora, ripping through the sail of a passing boat and then through the Shelter Island lighthouse. Another shows a crew member's head emerging from a scupper, light shining from his bald pate. Another shows seagulls perched on the empty liquor bottles as they are disgorged from the yacht. Perhaps the most appealing is of a young lady in a swimsuit, wild red hair streaming, water-skiing on a makeshift board. Laid in is the personalized handmade textile bookmark of Arthur T. Vance.A fascinating and unique artifact displaying Neill's artistry and inventiveness.

Die interessanten Privataufnahmen zeigen die Verwüstungen nach der Überschwemmung des Stifting-, Ragnitz- und Leonhardbaches. - „Am Beginn dieses Jahrhunderts war es vor allem das Hochwasserereignis am Nachmittag des 16. Juli 1913 am Stifting-, Ragnitz- und Leonhardbach, welches ganze Stadtteile in Mitleidenschaft zog und aufgrund der Intensität der Niederschläge sogar den Einzug in die internationale Fachliteratur fand. Nach dieser Katastrophe, bei der auch zwei Menschen den Tod fanden, untersagte die Bauordnung von 1921 die Errichtung von Kellerwohnungen. Bei diesem Ereignis fielen im Stiftingtal innerhalb weniger Stunden mehr als 600 mm Niederschlag. Es wurden an den drei genannten Bächen praktisch alle Brücken zerstört und die Uferbefestigungen stark in Mitleidenschaft gezogen. An mehreren Stellen kam es zu Verklausungen und nach dem Bruch derselben zu zerstörerischen Flutwellen bachab. Die Kanalstrecke ab der Herz-Jesu-Kirche konnte die Wassermassen nicht aufnehmen, und so strömte ein großer Teil des Wassers durch die Morellenfeldgasse, Sparbersbachgasse und Nibelungengasse der Stadt zu [...]“ (Homepage der Stadt Graz). - Umschlag etw. berieben u. an den Ecken bestoßen, sonst gutes Exemplar. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Graz - Überschwemmung 1913, Katastrophen, Überschwemmungen

        The Lodger.

      Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz., 1913. Octavo. Original orange cloth, green calf label to spine. Discoloured and rolled spine, slightly discoloured endpapers, gently bumped corners, exceptionally clean and bright contents. Still an excellent copy. First Tauchnitz edition, published the same year as the first, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "A. S. M. Hutchinson, with the kind thoughts of the writer, Marie Belloc Lowndes". Belloc Lowndes's classic novel, the story of a couple in 1880s London who suspect that their lodger is Jack The Ripper, has long been ranked amongst the finest of detective fiction. It was a best-seller in its day and was the subject of several stage and screen adaptations, most famously by Alfred Hitchcock in 1927.

        Photograph album documenting the 1913 Alaskan cruise of the U. S. Coastal and Geodetic Service Survey Steamer USC&GS MacArthur

      Alaska, California, and Washington DC 1913 - This 10.5" x 7" album contains over 150 photographs (most between 3.25" and 5.25") glued to 35 leaves. Over 110 of the photos are of the ship's Alaskan mission, many captioned. About a dozen are of Washington DC, and the last 30 or so must have been inserted in 1915 as they are of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. The photographs and leaves are in nice shape. The leather cover is heavily worn at the edges. Some of the highlights include: Washington DC (White House Easter Egg Roll, Wilson's Inaugural Parade, the USC&GS Headquarters), USC&GS MacArthur (the crew, the wardroom, the deck, a bunk, at sea, beached for "bottom cleaning," floating ice, USS Maryland, visitors from the Admiral Sampson), Alaska (La Perouse Glacier, bird's-eye view of Seward, baseball game at Seward, the Augustine and illiamna Volcanoes, camp at Iniskin Bay, Ursus Head, salmon cannery at Port Graham, Capitol Building at Juneau, Swanson Harbor, petting a bear cub, clamming, a mudslide, a meeting of Alaskan Natives in western dress, Juneau street scene showing the Alaska Hotel and The Renovatory laundry, Knik street scenes showing the town pool room and Railroad Kitchen exterior, dining room of what is probably Knik's Railroad Kitichen, an Alaskan Native woman selling beaded moccasins, and real photo postcards of the First Camp Arctic Brotherhood building in Skagway, an aerial view of Ruby City, and Resurrection Bay), and California (views of many buildings at the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco)Although the photographs show the MacArthur's crew dressed in USC&GS uniforms, the officers were actually civilians. USC&GS personnel were not formally commissioned until 1917. This was done so that if captured during World War I while performing hydrographic duties, they would be treated as prisoners of war rather than executed a spies. Parts of the USC&GS eventually evolved into what today is the Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), one the seven United States Uniformed Services.Exceptionally scarce. As of 2017, OCLC shows one institutional collection of similar loose photographs. There are no auction records for similar items, and none are available for sale in the trade.
