He founded the Department of Geography at that university, having already founded the University of Sydney's department.

        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."

        In Powder and Crinoline.

      London: Hodder & 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. Housed in a custom green straight-grain morocco-backed solander box by Zaehnsdorf. Original pen and ink drawing by Nielsen, depicting a deferential gentleman kissing the hand of a sumptuously dressed princess; the tableau bears a striking resemblance – much in the sense of a preparatory drawing – to the more elaborate headpiece illustration for the first story, "Minon-Minette", on page 13. Colour frontispiece, illustrated title page and 25 colour plates on grey textured paper with captioned tissue-guards, black and white illustrations to text. Boards very slightly bowed, minor fading to extremities, an excellent, bright copy. Signed limited edition, number 220 of 500 copies. This copy with an original pen and ink drawing by Nielsen on the reverse of the limitation page, initialled in pencil. An article in the 1913 Christmas Bookman recommends this work describes Nielsen as "a young artist of curiously original gifts. There are traces in his drawings for 'In Powder and Crinoline' of the influence of Aubrey Beardsley, and there are also an imaginative daring, a fantasy, a fascinating grace and decorative loveliness that are peculiarly his own and make his art unique amongst the illustrations of this year's books". Extremely rare with an original drawing: we have neither seen or heard of another copy and no other copies traced at auction.

        Dingo

      Paris : Bibliothèque-Charpentier, 1913. First edition, limited to 175 numbered copies; the present copy is one of 25 printed on papier impérial du Japonwith wide margins (copy no. 15). Tall octavo, original full black morocco, spine with raised bands lettered in gilt, with gilt dentelles at head and tail, all edges gilt, inner boards ruled in triple gilt, crimson silk lining papers, marbled endpapers, 422 pp, a fine copy in the magnificent original binding; housed in a slightly later marbled slipcase. The final novel by the French writer Octave Mirbeau, Dingo was completed by his colleague Léon Werth. The story is a disturbing allegory of the violent unpredictability and murderous impulses that lurk deep within the human psyche, the protagonist being a wild dingo whose existence within contemporary French society is described through the first-person narrative of his owner. The chief redeeming quality of the animal is, however, one that is often lacking in common human behaviour: the dingo's spontaneous interactions with its immmediate environment are instinctive and truthful, neither denying the creature's real desires nor masking its own identity. Mirbeau paints the dingo as a paradox of outward savagery and profound harmony, a depiction which perhaps comes close to inverting our general perception of so-called civilised humanity. No copy of the first edition on papier impérial du Japonis recorded in Australian collections.

        [Photo Album]: YWCA OH! Club - College Women in the Midwest

      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 images follow a group of cheerful young women, members of the "Oh! Club" (possibly at Ohio University). 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. .
