        Photo Archive - Collection of 480+ Photographs Mounted in Four (4) Albums With Chief's Tribal Necklace During Missionary Post in Sarawak

      Indonesia, 1936. Sarawak, 1936-1957. Archive of 490 photographs from Reverend Missionary Peter Howes, compiled over a span of twenty years whilst serving the people of Sarawak in Borneo, together with some documents, awards, and an authentic Malay chief's necklace. Comprises 4 oblong 8vo. albums with more than 474 photographs some of which are captioned, 9 additional loose photographs, 7 large format photographs on mounts, 1 large military war map of Sarawak from 1944, papers relating to an award and a special invitation, 3 wooden commemorative plaques for his service, 5 pewter presentation plates, 1 signed fiftieth anniversary yearbook of the Batu Lingtan Teacher's College titled "Who shall Separate Us" which contains firsthand accounts by Howes (spelled Howse in the volume), and 3 of the missionary's travel documents. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 6 x 6 cm, the largest approximately 23 x 17 cm, and three which are panoramic views. Map measures approximately 64 x 74 cm. Wear to albums mainly at spines, a few images age-toned, otherwise the lot in Very Good Condition, a pleasing collection of photographs and a scarce tribal necklace. Right Reverend Peter Henry Herbert Howes (1911-2003) was a priest, missionary, archdeacon, and assistant bishop for the Church of England, who spent the vast majority of his career in the Malaysian state of Sarawak. Born in Edgmond, Shropshire, he studied for the Anglican ministry in Newark from 1929 to 1934, and arrived in Sarawak for his mission in July 1937 to work with the Bidayuh people (also known as Land Dayaks). He was first an assistant priest at St. Augustine's church and school at Kuching under Father Jack Sparrow, and was temporary headmaster at St. Michael's School in Sandakan in British North Borneo for eleven months in 1939. He then became priest and was stationed at Quop (Kuap), presiding over the surrounding Bidayuh district as well as Merdang and Entingan. Howes was arrested by the Japanese and interned at the Batu Lintang Prison Camp from 1942 to 1945, where he witnessed to POW's and captive civilians. Upon his release in September 1945 he returned to Quop, and subsequently took leave in England. By 1950 he was back in Sarawak, and in September 1952 he established the Epiphany Theological College in Kuching and translated lectures into Iban and Biatah languages. In 1955 six canonries were created, Howes being named Canon of Borneo. Howes was a strong advocate and influential founder of the Padawan Community Development Programme, which was eventually approved by the colonial government in 1958. He was named Officer-in-Charge for two years, and headed projects to develop medical services and agricultural training. He was appointed Archdeacon of Sarawak and Brunei in 1961 and in the same year received the OBE. In 1962 he appointed Archdeacon of Kuching. In 1964 he was made an honorary Officer of the Order of the Star of Sarawak. He served as Archdeacon of Brunei and North Sarawak and was active in establishing new missions. In 1976 he was made Assistant Bishop, based at Kuching, an honor which to him signified acceptance by the people as being virtually a Sarawakian himself. He retired and returned to England in June 1981. The Bodleian Library in Oxford holds a collection of Howes' documents dealing with Sarawak. Indigenous life and customs of Malaysian Borneo, manual trades and craftship, jungle villages, and the rise of public services including schools and dispensaries, are handsomely captured in this voluminous visual archive of snapshot photographs. Reverend Peter Howes arrived in Sarawak only four and a half years prior to Japanese invasion during the Second World War, and was imprisoned at the Batu Lintang Prison Camp for over three years. The present photographic archive largely represents Howes' post-war work in Sarawak, with a scant few images from his earliest years there. The archive includes a most uncommon and invaluable token of Sarawak custom and leadership. A Bidayuh or Dayak chief evidently presented Reverend Howes with his own two-part ceremonial necklace. A fine specimen of tribal custom, the handcrafted jewelry features bright coloured beadwork, two seashells, metal chainwork, and several metal bells to amplify dance rituals. Stationed mostly at Kuching, and for a time at Sandakan (1938-1940), Howes' photographs form an important visual record of the mission's philanthropic undertakings to develop facilitate better education, medicine, and agricultural self-sufficiency for the people. He also photographed significant events and conferences, and special visitors to the island such as the Archibishop of York and the Duchess of Kent. Sarawakians are seen hard at work constructing new buildings, making gardens, and teaching their children. In the latter part of 1930s Howes visited other churches and substituted for priests who went on leave, which took him to Sandakan, Betong and other outstations. As archdeacon, responsible for a vast region of remote villages, he again travelled frequently in the 1950s, as seen in his albums. The earliest image is group photograph of Bishop Noel Baring Hudson and his ecclesiastical staff in 1936 just before Howes' arrival in Sarawak. Following this are forty pre-war photographs of Howes' missionary colleagues and students, ten of them being captioned with dates from January to June 1939, some taken at St. Augustine's school in Betong and at St. Michael's school in Sandakan. Howes evidently made a coastal voyage to Brunei with some of his students in July 1949, to Kampung Jogon in Upper Sarawak in 1954, and in 1955 he visited the small village of Panchor in Johor, across the Strait from Singapore. Also in 1955 he attended a centennary celebration for the founding of the Anglican Church in Borneo, a celebration which was delayed by seven years due to Japanese occupation and the effects of the war. Regardless of its timing, interestingly associated with the Biblical number of completion (7), the event was spectacular. Religious proceedings and the ordination ceremony are memorialized in large photographs herein. It was during this event that Howes was ordained Canon of Borneo. In 1953 he and five companions embarked on a journey from Pangkalan Ampat to Indonesia, visiting several villages including Kampong Goon, rendering some captivating photographs of curious children, a shy onlooker, the village chief and an armed guard. They travelled through the valleys of Baji mountain and Temau mountain, and crossed the River Kumba (known as the Sambas today) to reach remote villages. In another album spanning the years 1953 to 1954 show the House of Epiphany established in Howes, and views of its surroundings. We also find images of the then newly constructed St. Thomas cathedral and boarding school, and finally, a vacation sojourn to Satang Islands, Mount Santubong, Simanggang (now known as Sri Aman). The 1957-58 album shows impressive development projects, in and around the towns of Marudi, Long Lama, and Lutong all near the Brunei border. Pig farms, fish ponds, vegetable gardens, machine shops, sawmills, schoolhouses, and fowl distribution are featured. [From 1957 to 1960 he was involved in the Padawan Community Development Scheme operating among the Land Dayaks of the Upper Sarawak River on the border with West Kalimantan.] Indigenous custom is captured on numerous occasions throughout, in lovely images of thatched roof dwellings and extensive bamboo terraces, men and women in traditional dress, children playing and caring for younger children, simple bamboo bridges traversing rivers, and so forth. Sadly, a photograph of a young boy eagerly opening an envelope, is living at a leper camp; several women are in the background. Also dispersed throughout the albums are photographs of Howes' colleagues, including Father A. K. Leefe who was also instrumental in the development and advancement of traditional Bidayuh villages The scant few papers iclude a typed document of prayers and invocations in the Biatah language, and a commemorative prayer (in English) for Father Lim Siong Teck, who, upon Japanese occupation, assumed the responsibilites of Lee Kui Choi, headmaster of SMK St. Columbia who had been killed by the Japanese military police. [Shortly thereafter the Japanese also killed Father Teck.] Howes' UK issued travel documents contain Malaysia immigration stamps. Reverend Howes lived and served in Sarawak as an Anglican priest and missionary from 1937 to 1981, during which time he spent only three leaves in England. Sarawak saw much turmoil and change during this period. Howes played a significant part in the nation's post war rebuild and self-sufficiency. He impacted many civilians' lives on a personal level. Sarawak achieved independence within Malaysia in 1963. Howes' contribution to the state was recognized by the new State Government when he was made an honorary Officer of the Order of the Star of Sarawak (PBS) in 1964. Batu Lintang camp (also known as Lintang Barracks and Kuching POW camp) at Kuching, Sarawak, on the island of Borneo was a Japanese internment camp during the Second World War. It was unusual in that it housed both Allied prisoners of war and civilian internees. The camp, which operated from March 1942 until the liberation of the camp in September 1945, was housed in buildings that were originally British Indian Army barracks. Population numbers fluctuated due to movement of prisoners between camps in Borneo, and as a result of the high death toll. It held a maximum population of some 3,000 prisoners. Life in the camp was harsh; the interned suffered food shortages, disease, forced labour, brutal treatment, and lack of adequate clothing and living quarters. Over two thirds of the approximate 2,000 British POWs died in this camp during their captivity or as a direct result of it. During Japanese occupation Howes was interned in the Batu Lintang Camp, where, using the Greek New Testament and Gore's Commentary, he occupied himself by revising the Biatah Gospels and translating the Epistles. For paper he washed and bleached old treasury records, which entered the camp wrapped around rations, and the backs of labels from tins. Japanese searches were frustrated by rolling the papers into small, pencil-size cylinders and concealing them in bottles closed with a wooden stopper and sealed with latex, which were buried underneath the hut. These survived to be published some 18 years later. At the end of the war, the internees were sent to Labuan. Howes successfully resisted immediate repatriation to England by the Australian military authorities and received permission to return to Quop. . Very Good.

Heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey's "exploits distinguished the 1920s as 'the golden age of sports'... In the ring, he was a tiger without mercy who shuffled forward in a bobbing crouch, humming a barely audible tune and punching to the rhythm of the song. He was 187 pounds of unbridled violence...

        Young Men in Spats

      Doubleday, Doran & Company, Cleveland 1936 - 297 pages. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's green cloth with dark green lettering to spine and pictorial cover in original jacket. First American edition. Young Men in Spats is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom on 3 April 1936 by Herbert Jenkins, London, then in the United States with a slightly different selection of stories on 24 July 1936 by Doubleday, Doran, New York. The collection, recounting the adventures of various members of the Drones Club (except for the last one), features many familiar characters from Wodehouse's other writings, including Freddie Widgeon and the irrepressible Mr Mulliner. One story, "Uncle Fred Flits By", features the first appearance of Pongo Twistleton and his Uncle Fred, who would go on to feature in four novels, including two appearances at Blandings Castle. The US edition contains a slightly different selection of stories from the UK version. "Tried in the Furnace" and "Trouble Down At Tudsleigh" had not previously appeared in the US, and were held back so they could garner greater income from magazine sales. (Both stories eventually appeared in Cosmopolitan.) These two stories were accordingly replaced by three Oldest Member golf stories, "There's Always Golf", "The Letter of the Law", and "Farewell to Legs". These three Oldest Member stories had all appeared in US magazines in early 1936; they all later appeared in the UK in Lord Emsworth and Others (1937). After their Cosmopolitan appearances, "Tried in the Furnace" was included in the US-only collection The Crime Wave at Blandings (1937), and "Trouble Down at Tudsleigh" was included in the US edition of Eggs, Beans and Crumpets (1940). Condition: Light sunning to extremities and spine. Jacket chipped at corners and spine ends, light edge wear, light soiling else a very good copy in like jacket.

In dustwrapper, with titles in black to spines and uppers. Portrait frontispiece to volume I; large folding colour map to rear of each volume and several other illustrations, many folding.

A very attractive copy. Doughty's epic two-year journey through Europe to The Holy Land and Syria in the 1870s remained almost unknown to the public until, in 1908, an abridgement by Garnett under the title Wanderings in Arabia immediately gained for Doughty a host of admirers.

Elephant folio (14-1/2 by 21 inches), original full brown pigskin gilt, raised bands, top edges gilt, uncut; etchings in original matching portfolio with brown paper boards. $8500.Signed limited first edition of this monumental collection of Spanish landscapes, cityscapes and interiors, number 24 of only 265 sets, with 120 large full-page illustrations in various media (three double-page, many in color) by Muirhead Bone and descriptions by Gertrude Bone, signed by both, with the additional portfolio of two original drypoint etchings, each signed by Muirhead Bone. With a presentation inscription from artist W. Russell Flint and two related signed autograph letters, one from Muirhead to Flint and one from Mary Bone to John Moore, the recipient of this copy.Because Muirhead Bone was originally trained as an architect, it stands to reason that his favorite subjects were city architecture (which often focussed on urban demolition and renewal), industrial plants and landscapes. His art "reflects the mind of the architect, an almost mathematical feeling for strains and stresses" (DNB). Bone's preferred media were etching, dry-point and lithography. "In the art of dry-point, Bone did not, from his first attempts, take long to achieve a mastery which it was well-nigh impossible to improve upon, certainly not as a technical process" (Kenneth M. Guichard). Appointed official British war artist during the First World War, he produced 150 lithographs of the conflict, published by the War Department as The Western Front (1917). After the armistace he returned to his earlier subject matter, adding a new fascination with shipyards and the war-damaged towns of France. For many years, Bone and his wife Gertrude took up residence in Italy and Spain. This monumental collection of his drawings and prints of Spain were "gathered during leisurely visits extending over the last years of the old régime." Bone's work is known for its meticulous detail, without ever becoming labored. With the separate portfolio of two original drypoint etchings signed by Bone: "The Apse, Leon Cathedral" and "Roman Bull Excavated at Merida," often missing. Inscribed in volume I by fellow Scottish artist W. Russell Flint, "For my dear friend John Moore with every good and affectionate wish from his companion on many happy occasions. W. Russell Flint. â€"- March 31, 1967." Flint, a celebrated artist and illustrator, shared with Bone a love of Spain, to which he also returned for inspiration throughout his life. Laid into this copy are two autograph letters signed. The first, from Muirhead Bone to Russell Flint, reads: "The Radcliffe Infirmary (Private Block) Oxford. Oct 2, 1953. My dear Russell Flint, There must be few letters giving one such a pleasure to answer as yours! I have been here nearly 10 weeks now and the days have often been a bit dreary. Your letter made me very bright indeed. Of course I know better but as an invalid I just ignore that and sip my sugared tea. They have now finished a block of radio-therapy treatments on me and in a fortnight am being allowed to go homeâ€"for a while anyhow. My general health may then improve they think. Speriamo! Afraid it may be some time before I remember how to sharpen a pencil though. Again my warmest thanks for your kindness and warmest best wishes to your own work. Yours ever, Muirhead Bone." Sadly, Bone's health did not improve, and he died three weeks later on October 21, 1953. A second, undated letter is from Mary Bone to the recipient of this copy. It reads "140 Haverstock Hill NW3 May 8th. Dear Mr. Moore. I am sorry not to reply to your letter before; I received it in Rome, from where I have recently returned. Your theory about squaring out the first page of a sketchbook is, I fear, with no foundation, I never saw Muirhead do that. His method, when drawing in cramped quarters, or on the spur of the moment [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Calls, Sounds and Merchandise of the Peking Street Pedlers.

      Peking.: Peking Bookshop.. The Peking Bookshop. [Stamped over The Camel Bell]. 61 colour lithographs, 16 black and white tipped-in plates (1 creased), black and white illustration showing "The Pakua or Eight Diagrams", original paper cut pattern creased and separated at border. Folded leaves, bound in Chinese four hole stab binding covered with patterned silk. Vertical crease first and last three leaves. 19 x 26.5cm. Good copy of a charming and important book. This charming book, based on Constant?'s 1936 MA thesis, offers a wonderful combination of the beautiful and the scholarly. Constant was fascinated by East Asia studying Oriental languages at Columbia University. In 1923, in his late 20s, and by then a captain in the U.S. Army Constant was posted to Beijing as an Assistant Military Attaché of the American Legation. The following year he went to the front line of the Zhi-Feng War as an observer. A year later took part in the rescue effort of Harvey James Howard, an American doctor who was kidnapped by bandits in Northeast China. Constant?'s interest in things Chinese grew throughout his life. While working for the American Legation, he also attended the College of Chinese Studies (known as California College in China in the U.S.A.). His thesis ran to 103 pages and was illustrated with colour illustrations and photographs. Fortunately The Camel Bell Press saw that there might be a market for such a work and in 1936, the same year Constant was awarded his MA, published this enlarged edition. This important work offers a rare picture of a now vanished world. (Li Guoqing 2012) .

        Crusader Castles. Complete in two volumes comprising The Thesis and The Letters. With forewords by A.W.Lawrence and Mrs [Sarah] Lawrence.

      The Golden Cockerel Press, London, 1936. The first publication of Lawrence's Oxford thesis (originally entitled 'The Influence of the Crusades on European Military Architecture to the end of the Twelfth Century'). Limited to 1,000 numbered copies (this being #397) printed in Perpetua type on British mould-made paper and bound by Sangorski and Sutcliff into half morocco, gilt lettered at spines with five raised bands to each and cream cloth sides. 4to. Top edges gilt, other untrimmed. With over 150 reproductions of drawings, photographs and diagrams, and two four-panel folding maps (one lightly stained with two small enclosed areas of loss and some surface abrasion) housed in a separate envelope at the rear, as issued. Cloth sides a little grubby, stained and lifting at one edge. Endpapers and pastedowns marked and a little discoloured with two small areas of rust marking to the endpaper of the first volume, presumably where something was once stored. A slightly handed set, but internally in superb state. "A first typewritten text of the thesis served as a draft for a corrected version, also typewritten, which was bound with numbered illustrations and submitted to the examiners. The author then began to revise the rough copy again in pencil, apparently with a view to publication, altering the wording and writing comments in the margins. The title 'Crusader Castles' appears only in this version. After the examination (in which he was placed in the First Class), one of the judges of the thesis urged the University Press to publish it in book form, saying however that not one of the illustrations could be spared; the cost was considered prohibitive." - from A.W.Lawrence's foreword. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.

        Gone With the Wind

      New York: Macmillan, 1936. First edition of the author's classic novel. Octavo, original gray cloth. Signed by Margaret Mitchell on the front free end paper. First printing, with "Published May 1936" on the copyright page and no mention of other printings. First issue dust jacket, with Gone with the Wind listed in the second column of the booklist on the back panel, with $3.00 cost on the front flap. Near fine in the orignal dust jacket with some professional restoration to the extremities. A very nice example. In 1923, Margaret Mitchell became a feature writer for the Atlanta Journal, and in 1925, married John Marsh, a public relations officer for Georgia Power. She found most of her assignments unfulfilling, and she soon left to try writing fiction more to her own taste. Her own harshest critic, she would not try to get her work published. She began to write Gone with the Wind in 1926, while recovering from an automobile accident. Over the next eight years she painstakingly researched for historical accuracy. She accumulated thousands of pages of manuscript. Here is how she later described her life's labor: "When I look back on these last years of struggling to find time to write between deaths in the family, illness in the family and among friends which lasted months and even years, childbirths (not my own), divorces and neuroses among friends, my own ill health and four fine auto accidents ... it all seems like a nightmare. I wouldn't tackle it again for anything. Just as soon as I sat down to write, somebody I loved would decide to have their gall-bladder removed. ... " In 1934, an editor from Macmillan's Publishers came to Atlanta seeking new authors. He was referred to John and Margaret Marsh as people who knew Atlanta's literary scene. She steered him to several prospects, but didn't mention her own work. A friend told him that she was writing a novel, but she denied it. On the night before he was to leave Atlanta, she appeared at his hotel-room door with her still imperfect, mountainous manuscript and left it with him for better or for worse. "This is beyond doubt one of the most remarkable first novels produced by an American writer. It is also one of the best" (New York Times). Gone With the Wind is said to be the fastest selling novel in the history of American publishing (50,000 copies in a single day), and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize.

        Bread and Wine.

      London: Methuen and co., 1936. - First English Edition. Octavo. Bound in publisher's blue cloth, with titles in red to front board and spine. Pictorial dust wrapper displays a mass of waiting peasants thronging the city streets, whether in revolt or in celebration is unclear, with review excepts for the author's first novel "Fontamara" to rear cover; unprice-clipped, originally priced at 7s 6d. Binding is tight, bumped to corners and spine ends. The dust wrapper remains vibrant, rubbed to edges and spine ends. Silone was a socialist author, who was a covert head of the Italian Communist Party during the fascist period. This anti-fascist novel was distributed, in an unauthorized edition, by the US military forces during the liberation of Italy, and it weaves a complex narrative of a young revolutionary struggling to mobilize the peasantry with that of an aspirant nun.

Pierre Loti, né Louis Marie Julien Viaud, le 14 janvier 1850 à Rochefort et mort le 10 juin 1923 à Hendaye, est un écrivain français qui a mené parallèlement une carrière d`officier de marine. Il a été enterré sur l`île d`Oléron après des funérailles nationales. Sa maison à Rochefort est devenue un musée. Pierre Loti dont une grande partie de l`œuvre est autobiographique s`est inspiré de ses voyages de marin pour écrire ses romans, par exemple à Tahiti pour Le Mariage de Loti (Rarahu) (1882), au Sénégal pour Le Roman d’un spahi (1881) ou au Japon pour Madame Chrysanthème (1887). Il a gardé toute sa vie une attirance très forte pour la Turquie, où le fascinait la place faite à la sensualité, en particulier à la sensualité féminine : il l`illustre notamment dans Aziyadé (1879), et sa suite Fantôme d’Orient (1892).

This is renowned shipowner's account of the day-to-day events and operations of the whaling vessel, illustrated by photographs and with diagrams and map. "The fact that the honour of printing has been bestowed upon it does not imply that 'folie de grandeur' exists with regard to it. Owing to the high cost of reproducing the sketches and diagrams by any other method, the extra expense of printing the whole Diary was only about 30 Pounds."
