First edition, first impression, of Hoppé's first publication. When the Ballets Russes arrived in London for the first time in June 1911, Hoppé secured the exclusive rights to photograph its leading members in his new studio at Baker Street. The plates show principal dancers Tamara Karsavina, Adolph Bolm, Vaslav Nijinsky, and Sofia Vasylievna Fedorova posing in elaborate costumes from a variety of productions. These photographs would be exhibited the following year at the Ryder Gallery. Two of the photographs in the portfolio, both of Nijinsky, were actually taken by August Bert, credited as "Bert" on the title sheet; Nijinsky did not sit for Hoppé until 1914 after his last performance of Le Spectre de la Rose. Hoppé's contemporary, Cecil Beaton, referred to him as "the Master": elsewhere, he has been cited as "the most important photographer in the world during the 1920s" (ODNB).

Daniel Auguste Rosensthiel (1839-1916) est l'homme de la modernité en matière de chimie des colorants ; il consacra toutes ses recherches aux molécules colorantes organiques obtenues par la voie synthétique.

        Collection of Eugene Orflinger, Automobile Parts Supplier, 1913-1915 (21 items)

      1913. The 21 letters reflect the age of the vintage automobile.Several things are evident from these letters: (1) Each corporation was both aggressive but attempting to emphasize public service even when the customer (as is evident from the correspondent Mr. Dorflinger) in their eagerness to promote sales; (2) Many of these corporations were either very new or had already undergone corporate changes in their history.As an example, Stewart-Warner Speedometer Corporation (see letter of June 15, 1913) had just ended a legal battle in 1912 when they acquired the Warner Corporation and controlled their patents; (3) In this era before the assembly line, parts were produced in very small quantities ranging from a few hundred to upward of a thousand. Consequently, once the stock was over, the parts had to be manufactured anew or else a modification of the existing part.
