        Scrapbook]: Culver Military Academy

      Culver, Indiana 1913 - Oblong folio. Measuring 12" x 16". String-tied maroon cloth over paper boards with "Culver" stamped on the front board. Contains various ephemera, 80 pictorial postcards, and 53 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2.5" and 7.5" x 9.5", some with captions. Front board has detached but is present, slight foxing, and edgewear thus good only with near fine photographs.A scrapbook kept by David Burpee between 1910 and 1913 while he attended Culver Military Academy in Culver, Indiana. Burpee was the son of seedsman, Washington Atlee Burpee who headed W. Atlee Burpee & Co. out of Philadelphia. The company was the first seed company to succeed with a mail order system. After Washington's death in 1915 David took over the company as a seed merchant and horticulturist dedicating his time to the science behind cultivating seeds and creating new ways to assure the seeds would travel well. He was also interested in "plant breeding" and spent his life, according to a 1975 interview with *People Magazine*, "creating new and better kinds of flowers, plants and vegetables." Before he headed the Burpee Company, David attended Culver Military Academy and achieved officer status by the time of his graduation. The school was founded by Henry Culver in 1894 "for the purpose of thoroughly preparing young men for the best colleges, scientific schools and businesses of America."David's scrapbook extensively details his three years at the academy with photos of himself and cadets in uniform, in their barracks, and participating in athletics. A large photo shows the Culver Academy's track team as well as some action shots of Burpee during a race. He also saved programs and dance cards from plays and balls that were held at the school. The album contains an opening section of seven autograph pages with names, cities, and messages or "happy thoughts" from fellow cadets such as Richard M. Armstrong from Grand Rapids who wrote, "all the world loves a lover." Burpee includes pamphlets: "Introduction to New Cadets" and "Regulations for the Government of Cadets." The album also includes numerous photos of the cadets in military formations in full uniforms. They participated in nature hikes, drills, and Calvary practice. Burpee dedicated a large section of the book to pictorial postcards of the campus, Indiana, and various school trips, such as one to Washington, DC. The academy held special programs and dinners for holidays, pamphlets are seen here with dinner menus for Thanksgiving as well as special performances. There is also a large broadside for the Culver Mid-Winter Circus which included a Hindoo Juggler.Burpee left the academy in 1913 and went on to study at Cornell University until his father's death in 1915. He was given the nickname, "the Dean of U.S. horticulturists," and was constantly experimenting with new lines of plants. The seed catalogs were distributed twice a year and boasted over "1,400 different seeds, bulbs, shrubs, flowers, vegetables and trees." As of 1975 his personal goal was to create an all-white marigold which had been something he had been trying to create since 1953. According to the The National Cyclopaedia of American Biography: Permanent series, Volume 16, Burpee "achieved remarkable success in the conduct of the company's affairs displaying unusual executive ability wisdom and business acumen. He is not only a close student of horticulture and agriculture but is also a true devotee of the science."An interesting look at the school days of an American entrepreneur. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Boy's Will

      London: David Nutt, 1913 - Octavo. Original wrappers, titles in black to front. Housed in a green morocco backed bookform slipcase and chemise. Fine. True first edition of Frost's first published book, second issue wonderfully inscribed with a poetic quotation: "One had to be versed in country things, Robert Frost, for Crosby Gaige". Crosby Gaige (1882-1949) was a New York based publisher and theatrical impresario, who pioneered in the late 20s the production of fine press collections for living authors (which he described as "flowers for the living" as opposed to "garlands for the dead") such as Woolf (Orlando), Joyce (Anna Livia Plurabella), Sassoon and Hardy. Gaige was also a great epicure and frequenter of New York's finest supper clubs and cocktail lounges, and wrote several books on cookery and cocktails. The poetry collection A Boy's Will was the first published book of Robert Frost - who was then already nearing 40 and, though he had written much, had not found a conducive publisher in America. He had moved to London in 1912, hoping to find the scene more receptive to new poetic voices, and, with the support of F. S. Flint and other sympathetic Imagists such as Ezra Pound, managed to secure a deal with David Nutt, who printed 1,000 copies of A Boy's Will. Only about 350 copies were issued by Nutt, who went bankrupt shortly after the war, and sold the remainder stock to Simpkin & Marshall. Frost in the meantime had returned to America at the outbreak of the war, and, bolstered by his London publication and its rave reviews penned by his Imagist friends, achieved the American beginning of his meteoric poetic career with an edition of A Boy's Will published by Henry Holt in 1915. The c.650 remainder copies of A Boy's Will were later issued in a variety of bindings. This copy is of Crane's second issue, Binding D (the US issue, sold by Dunster House, Cambridge, MA, from 1923), with 4-petalled flowers, and "Printed in Great Britain" stamped to title page verso. Crane notes at length that this US issue came about entirely through Forst's express efforts. He was informed in 1921, by his friend J. W. Haines, that the remaining copies of his two early works (this and North of Boston - then in the possession of Simpkin Marshall, who had sold fewer than 100 copies - those being Crane's second issue, Binding C), were in danger of being pulped - Frost responded by sending "all the money I can raise to buy in those poor old first editions of mine". Haines transported them to Cambridge, MA, and Frost found a bookseller in Maurice Firuski of Dunster House. A little over half of the 1,000 copies printed were thus issued by Dunster House, before the remaining 135 copies, in 1943, were bought by the Chiswick Book Store, New York, and issued as a latterly-signed and numbered limited edition. We are aware of one other copy of this same issue also inscribed for Crosby Gaige, though this copy, with its marvellous invocation of one of Frost's most redolent lines (from "The Need of Being Versed in Country Things", first published in 1920), is certainly superior. A Boy's Will was preceded only by the small collection Twilight, 1894, of which only two copies were printed and only one survives, housed in the University of Virginia. In the same library are to be found two Frost limited editions, New Hampshire and West Running Book, both inscribed to Crosby Gaige. Crane A2. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        A history and description of the Royal Observatory, Cape of Good Hope.

      - London, His Majesty's Stationery Office, 1913. Folio (36.5 x 27.5 cm). cxc, 136 pp. Frontispiece with two photos, 58 [11, 16, 23, 5, 3] plates (line drawings and photos; sometimes several "plates" on one sheet), 19 text figures. Folded two-colour sheet of the plan of the observatory, and large folded diagram (i.e. map) of the geodetic triangulation of South Africa and adjacent countries. Original blue embossed cloth. Spine with gilt title.l A sumptuous volume compiled by the Scottish astronomer Sir David Gill (1843-1914) with detailed descriptions of various telescopes and survey projects. Gill was "Her Majesty's Astronomer" and director of the observatory from 1879 to 1906. "In 1874, Gill joined the expedition to Mauritius to observe the transit of Venus. Three years later he went to Ascension Island to observe a near approach of Mars and to calculate its distance. While carrying out these laborious calculations, he was notified of his appointment to the Cape Observatory, which, over the following 27 years he was to refurbish completely, turning it into a first-rate institution. Gill was a meticulous observer and had a flair for getting the best out of his instruments. His solar parallax observations with a heliometer and his calculations of distances to the nearer stars, are testimony to his outstanding work." (Wikipedia). The two frontispiece photos show the staff at Gill's arrival in 1879, and again more comprehensively in 1906, including women and non-Caucasians, That year, Gill returned to Great Britain. The work was finished and published shortly before his death. Printed errata leaf tipped in. Small old stamp on the title page, skilful repair to the top fore edge of the front board, otherwise a very good, clean copy. Rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London: Thomas Nelson and Sons,, 1913. First edition. First edition. Former owner's signature on verso of front fly leaf and small bookseller's label at bottom of front pastedown sheet, else a very good, bright copy in the original blue cloth. A Haycraft/Queen Cornerstone title. Haycraft notes in MURDER FOR PLEASURE, (New York, 1941) page 118, that this book "... like every epochal work, must be regarded in its own historical spectrum to be fully appreciated. Its deceptive unremarkableness, in fact is the chief reason for its uniqueness in an era in which flamboyance and overwriting were the hallmarks of the crime novel.... TRENT'S LAST CASE stands truly first among modern examples of the genre." John Carter, among the earliest champions of detective fiction, called Bentley "the father of the contemporary detective novel." A society woman is accused of murdering her businessman husband. Called to piece the clues together is Inspector Trent, on the verge of retiring from detection. He learns that the dead man was a louse, providing the wife with plenty of motive. But, did she do it? Laid-in to this copy is an affectionate autographed letter signed from E. C. Bentley to Ethel Oldershaw ("My Dear Ethel") on the passing of her husband, Bentley's old school friend Lucian Oldershaw: 2 handwritten in ink pages, 8vo, London (41 Queen's Gate Gardens), 5 February 1951. "I have known for the past two years what such a bereavement is, and I feel the more on that account for you and yours. So many of the best memories of my life are connected with Lucian, and as I live in the past nowadays he has been very often in my thoughts. For that matter he has never been very long out of them at any time . . . In the days when we were together so much, his companionship and resourcefulness and immense fund of humour made an unforgettable impression on me. I cannot be with you tomorrow because I am confined to my bedroom with bronchitis, but I wanted you to know how I feel, and I am yours sincerely. E. C. Bentley." Lucian Robert Frederic Oldershaw was, with Edmund Clerihew Bentley (died 1956; his wife had died in 1949), one of a trio of friends at St. Paul's School; the third was Gilbert Keith Chesterton (died 1936). Oldershaw introduced Chesterton to Frances Alice Blogg, his future wife (they married in 1896; she died in 1938), and in 1902 Oldershaw married her younger sister Ethel Laura Blogg (died 1953).

Though the book of 1913 contains none of those characteristic propositions of the book of 1936 [General Theory] that have been felt to be so 'revolutionary,' the general attitude taken toward monetary phenomena and monetary policy by the Keynes of 1913 clearly foreshadowed that of the Keynes of the Treatise (1930)."

      Wien, Selbstverlag, 1913 - 1918. 50 Hefte. Pag. OBrosch. \" ... knapp vor dem Kriegsausbruch [1914], hatte der \"Österreichische Flottenverein\" 44.617 Mitglieder. Er wurde in den vergangenen zehn Jahren von einem kleinen Kreis von Romantikern zu einem ernstzunehmenden wirtschaftlichen Faktor; aus einem elitären Club wurde eine übernationale, unpolitische Massenbewegung, die alle Zweige der Volkswirtschaft erreichte. Der Flottenverein bestand neben der Wiener Zentrale aus vielen Ortsgruppen; eine Ortsgruppe konnte überall dort gebildet werden, wo sich mehr als 20 Mitglieder zusammenfanden. 1914 waren es an die 200 solcher Ortsgruppen, sogar im Ausland: Abbazia, Adelsberg, Alexandrien, Antwerpen, Athen, Baden, Banjaluka, Barcelona, Beirut, Berlin, Berndorf, Bielitz, Bjelina in Bosnien, Bozen, Braila, Brcka, Brioni, Brünn, Brüssel, Brüx, Budweis, Bukarest, Cattaro, Curytiba, Czernowitz, Dresden, Eger, Franzensbad, Galatz, Gmunden, Görz, Gorazda, Gradiska, Graz, ... Nach der Ermordung Franz Ferdinands übernahm das Protektorat der neue Thronfolger Erzherzog Karl. Der Verein steigerte im Weltkrieg seine Propagandatätigkeit: Aus Spenden konnte er der k.u.k. Kriegsmarine ein Unterseeboot und zwei Flugzeuge widmen. Der Flottenverein hatte zuletzt um die 80.000 Mitglieder. Ende 1918 brachte der Zerfall der Monarchie auch das Ende des Flottenvereins; das Hauptziel, die Förderung der heimischen Seefahrt, entfiel. Die letzte Ausgabe der \"Flagge\" ist mit März/April 1919 datiert. Die stark geschwächte Wiener Zentrale und Ortsgruppe in der Schwarzspanierstraße wandelte sich zum \"Österreichischen Schiffahrtsverein\" und kurz darauf zur \"Österreichischen Weltwirtschaftsgesellschaft\" um. Neben dieser Vereinigung von Freunden und Förderen der Schiffahrt bildeten sich schon in den ersten Monaten der kleinen Republik in Linz, Klagenfurt, Salzburg, Tirol, Steiermark und Vorarlberg lose Gruppen ehemaliger Seeleute, die ihr Beruf verloren haben und sich um gegenseitige Unterstützung bemühten...\" (Zitat nach W.

      Various Midwest locations. mostly 1913-1918. Small oblong octavo. Measuring 8" x 6". Alligator patterned cloth over flexible card. 110 mostly sepia-toned gelatin silver prints. The majority are approximately 4.5" x 2.75" with a few larger. About half are captioned. Small stain on one board, images with a little fading, very good or better, images near fine.

The women are shown in large groups starting in 1913 at banquets, at initiations which includes a photo of all the women blindfolded, at a slumber party, a farmer's party, a Christmas party, a "Stag" party, etc. Many of the photos are of the girls traveling as a group to several Midwest locations: the Oh! Camp at Cedar Bluffs, (Nebraska?); at another Oh! Camp at Valley Park, (Missouri?); on a "St. Louis-Mazda Boat Excursion"; north of St. Louis at Chain of Rocks; at "Chautauqua" (which could be one of any number of places). In several of the images the women are dressed as men. The photos are dated through 1917 and show the women delighting in each other's company. There are photos of them in bathing costumes at various Oh! camps, hiking, and posing on a ship. A nice collection of photographs depicting an organization for young women in the early part of the 20th Century. .

Upon his return to Australia, he was offered a position with the Commonwealth Weather Service and was invited to represent the Service on Scott's Terra Nova Expedition (1910-12). Eventually running afoul of the Australian government for his views on immigration to Australia, he took a post as a full professor at the University of Chicago in 1929, moving on to the University of Toronto in 1936. He founded the Department of Geography at that university, having already founded the University of Sydney's department. An interesting copy, signed by an important member of the expedition and an eminent geographer. Note: 4 kg parcel, extra shipping will be required. Binding: Hardcover. .

        President Taft hosts groundbreaking of National American Indian Memorial

      Fort Tompkins, NY, February 22, 1913. 9.125" x 12.75". "Bifold invitation on cream paper on card stock, typewritten except for invitee name handwritten in black fountain pen at top. With print of photogravure by Joseph K. Dixon depicting solitary American Indian on rocky outcropping entitled "The Last Outpost" at top. Invitation measures 9.125" x 12.75" and is in fine condition, with expected wear including central crease and peripheral smudges.The invitation reads in part: "The National American Indian Memorial Association extends a cordial invitation to Dr. Julius J. Sachse to participate with The President of the United States Members of the Cabinet and other distinguished guests in the ceremonies attending the official inauguration of the work in connection with the erection of the National American Indian Memorial at Fort Wadsworth, in the Harbor of New York ... " 27th U.S. President William H. Taft (1857-1930) officiated the groundbreaking ceremony of the National American Indian Memorial on February 22, 1913. Ceremony invitees included Taft cabinet members, over thirty American Indian chieftains, and our invitee, one Dr. Julius Friedrich Sachse.The monument was to be built at Fort Tompkins, NY at the mouth of New York Harbor, about eleven miles south of the Statue of Liberty complex further north. Monument blueprints featured a 165-foot-tall statue of an American Indian warrior to be sculpted by Daniel Chester French (1850-1931). Outdoor sculptures of bison and horses, a museum containing indigenous artifacts, and a library were also planned for the site. Although Rodman Wanamaker of the department store fortune conceived the idea and spearheaded fundraising efforts, the project stalled and was never completed.Dr. Julius F. Sachse (1842-1919) was an amateur photographer who wrote extensively about late-nineteenth-century photography. A war veteran, businessman, and successful investor, Sachse received an honorary doctoral degree from Muhlenberg College (Bethlehem, PA). He devoted much of his later life to photographing everyday subjects, as well as offering critiques of the field of photography and photographic clubs, this last under the pseudonym J. Focus Snappschotte. It is possible that Sachse crossed paths with Wanamaker since the department store heir hosted several photographic expeditions out West between 1908 and 1913. It was on one of these trips to document the last days of "the noble savage" that Joseph K. Dixon took the remarkable photogravure featured on this invitation."
