      Photographic print on cotton cloth, with original hand colour (Good, lovely original colours, overall bright and clean, some very light staining and points of discolouration, small hole in lower right with minor loss to blank space, small loss to border lower-right), 70 x 67.5 cm (27.5 x 26.5 inches). - Accra: Surveyor General’s Office of the Gold Coast, November 17, 1920. An excellent map of Accra, the capital of the Gold Coast (today Ghana), based on a provisional official survey, lithographed on cloth, in Accra, in 1920, at the beginning of Governor Sir Frederick Gordon Guggisberg’s programme to modernize the city. - This excellent map is an official ‘provisional’ survey of Accra, the capital of the Gold Coast (today Ghana), printed in 1920, at the beginning of a great boom period that the city enjoyed under the leadership of the colony’s governor, Sir Frederick Gordon Guggisberg (in office, 1919 to 1927). Interestingly, the map was published by the colony’s Surveyor General’s Office, on cloth through a photographic technique, and then carefully hand coloured. Such a cloth map would have been practical for busy map- readers working in an equatorial climate. The map is, not surprisingly, very rare; we have not been able to find even a reference to it, let alone the appearance of any other examples in catalogues or sales records. The present map is described as being a ‘provisional’ map, in lieu of the completion of the precise survey of the city that was then underway. A note, in the lower right, reads: ‘An accurate survey of Accra on scales 1:1000 and 1:5000 is now in progress, and pending its completion this plan compiled from existing information is issued for public use. This plan does not claim to be exact in every detail but is produced to meet urgent needs while the accurate survey is carried out.’ Also noted, was that the map was available for purchase from the ‘Sales Agents - Commonwealth Trust Ltd.’ for the price of 10 Shillings. The map’s official nature is certified by the printed signatures of the colony’s Surveyor . SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

        On the structure and relations of Notharctus, an American Eocene primate.

      1920 - New York: American Museum of Natural History. 1920. 4to. Sometime bound in quarter maroon leather, grey cloth boards, gilt lettering to spine; pp. 49 - 243, 54 plates including 8 removable stereoscopic slides; partially uncut, very good. Reprint from Memoirs of the American Museum of Natural History, New Series, Volume III, Part II. Notharctus was a genus of lemur-like primate that lived in North America and Europe roughly forty million years ago. W.K. King (1876 - 1970) was a leading palaeontologist and expert on mammalian dentition whose work on human evolution led him to study several different species of early primate. This memoir is considered a landmark work because it is one of the most detailed studies of a fossil primate ever made and because of its contribution to our understanding of the ancestors of man.

        Handbill]: The 'He' Vampire. With No Apologies to Kipling

      no publisher, [No place - Los Angeles? 1920 - Small handbill. Approximately 4.25" x 7". Fine. A 29-line poem about women deferring to their pampered husbands, apparently in response to Kipling's poem "The Vampire," a soliloquy about the tender and bruised hearts of men who place their hopes in unfeeling women. The poem mimics some of the tropes and rhyme schemes of the Kipling poem. The final stanzas celebrate the reversal of that state of affairs:"But praise be sung in every tongueFor equal rights thruout the land!At last the men are on the run,Every single mother's son,And we the victory have won!(And they can't understand.)"Presumably the poem was prepared upon some triumph for women's rights, most likely the achievement of the vote, whether at the state or federal level is unclear. While there is no place of publication, our strong suspicion is that it was published in California. *OCLC* locates no copies. It does locate a single copy of a piece of sheet music by an author with this name published in Los Angeles in 1916.

        The Theory of Relativity.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1920. The Special & the General Theory, a Popular Exposition. Authorised Translation by Robert W. Lawson, with Five Diagrams and a Portrait of the Author. Octavo. Original red cloth, title blocked in blind to front cover and to spine in gilt. 8 pages of inserted advertisements. Portrait frontispiece of author by Hermann Struck, 5 diagrams in text. An excellent copy, in unusually bright cloth. First edition in English, translated from the third German edition (1918) by Robert W. Lawson. This is the first appearance of any of Einstein's works in English. The translator was a lecturer in physics at the University of Sheffield, and an honorary Assistent (assistant lecturer) at the Vienna Radium Institute from 1913. He was held as a prisoner of war while working in Vienna, during which time he polished his German. Lawson did more than translate this work: the additional chapter (Appendix III) written by Einstein for this edition, "The Experimental Confirmation of the General Theory of Relativity", was added at Lawson's urging, who thought the book would be more accessible if its author could provide a proof of the general theory. Relativity: The Special & the General Theory is an account intended to be accessible to the general public, which Einstein tested by reading drafts to his step-daughter Margot, "pausing frequently to ask whether she indeed got it" (Isaacson, p. 232). Einstein took the opportunity to publish the present English language edition when interest in general relativity grew after the theory was confirmed experimentally by Arthur Eddington's eclipse observations of 1919.

        [Photo album]: Al Martin Agency Photo Album of Aerial Acts and Circus Acts during 1956-1958 at the Bradford Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts

      Boston, Massachusetts. 1920-1960. Quarto measuring 11.5" x 10". 59pp. Contemporary black binder with a red and yellow "Al Martin Agency" flyer slide into the front cover pocket, with ephemera from the 1920s to the late 1950s. Small tears and chips thus near fine and near fine photographs with some small tears at the corners. A scrapbook filled with different pictures and written articles about aerial performers doing their acts at the Bradford Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts for the Al Martin Agency, during the mid to late 1950s as well as earlier pictures from the 1920s and 1930s of aerial performers and animal acts. Contains 32 gelatin silver sepia toned or black and white photographs measuring between 10" x 8" to 9.5" x 7.5", as well as flyers, printed articles, and typed press releases. The photographs depict different aerial performance groups posed together as well as their performances mid-air. Smiles and looks of excitement can be seen on the faces of the performers even in the photographs of them jumping, swinging, and twirling through the air. Most of the flyers are from the 1950s while the photographs are from the 1920s through to the 1930s which include the larger group photos of the aerial performers. One photograph catches a female performer almost horizontal with the board she's jumped from and another depicts two performers high up in the sky swinging on high-poles. Aside from the traditional acrobatic photos there are a couple of other acts: a man in cannon, Gee Gee Engesser on a sled with her arctic wolves, "The Alaskans," pulling her along, and the Brick Brothers with their monkey, Mr. Murphy. Several of the photographs are Inscribed to Alfred Martin from various people like Jack and Chuck Brick, Marilyn Steele, Gee Gee Engesser, the entire Val Jean Lake Orchestra, and other groups of performers. Several pictures feature animals acts like pigs climbing stairs and sliding down a slide and seals doing tricks for fresh fish. There is also a couple flyers for the Brick Brothers and their "Trampolene(sic) Monkey," Mr. Murphy. Some of the flyers are printed by Al Martin and feature the logo, location of the hotel, a picture of the act, and a small description of the performers. One description reads, "A gorgeous night spectacle as well as daytime thriller, climaxed with fireworks". While the performers pictures are in black and white, the flyer's illustrations are done in single bright colors such as oranges, purples, and blues. The last few pages of the scrapbook are press releases written by Alfred Martin about the different aerial performers. Each is about a page long with a short description of where the performers are from and the type of act they do. The performers written about include The Rooneys, Sensational Ortons, Aerial Charltons, and The Stardusters.An interesting look back at the amazing aerial performers and other circus acts that would come to act at the Bradford Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts during the 1920s through to the late 1950s. .

        Sleeping Beauty.

      London: William Heinemann, 1920. Signed limited deluxe edition. Quarto, original half vellum over cream boards, pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt. One of 625 numbered copies signed by the illustrator Arthur Rackham. Printed on English hand-made paper with an additional color plate. Illustrations: 25 full page silhouettes, comprising 9 in color (frontispiece and 4 double plates)--and 16 in black (including 4 double illustrations); one mounted colored plate; silhouette head- and tail-pieces and other silhouettes throughout the text, in black. In very good condition. "Rackham's fanciful imagination gave his illustrations instant recognition, and his dedication to illustration kept him in the public eye for 30 years" (Hodnett, 233). Like his Cinderella (1919), The Sleeping Beauty relied "almost wholly for [its] effect on silhouette... Rackham [was] a master of the medium, being able to evoke character and humor by profile and gesture alone, and allowing the two-dimensional effect of his pen work to lead the reader through the book and keep the story going" (Hamilton, 118).

        HAMLET: PRINCE OF DENMARK (Portfolio of 34 Etchings)

      [Berlin: Paul Graupe, 1920]. Folio. Portfolio of 34 etchings used for Frank's magnificent illustrated edition of Hamlet (J. Schroder, 1920). Engravings housed in cloth-backed portfolio with marbled paper over boars and stamped title label on the upper cover; light wear to the portfolio; first and last etching a trifle toned from the portfolio else a clean suite. While the book is fairly uncommon, to find a suite of etchings is all the more unusual. There was a smaller edition of 12 Roman numeral copies from a larger limitation that were issued with an additional suite of etchings. It seems likely that this is a waylaid suite. 1 etching pencil-signed by Frank.
