         [Original Rackham-illustrated vellum binding:] The Open Road.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1910. Compiled by E. V. Lucas. Octavo (164 x 108 mm). Quarter brown sheep, vellum covered boards, spine lettered in blind, two original pen-and-ink drawings by Rackham applied directly to the front cover, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers, red silk page marker. Spine a little rubbed at extremities, a little spotting to rear cover. In excellent condition. This fine example of Rackham's work is a test piece by the artist, practicing his technique for drawing directly onto vellum, possibly in preparation for a private commission. The illustration features two unconnected design elements – vignettes drawn in black and coloured inks, each signed by Rackham with his initials, and very much in the style he used for the headpieces in the Haddon Hall library (1899–1903). The top scene depicts a delicately-tinted castle backed by billowing clouds enclosing a partially opened scroll, with marbled colour lightly applied, a spray of brambles to the right-hand side of the image, and two swallows in flight in the foreground, with Rackham's initials next to the left-hand swallow. The scroll was evidently designed to contain lettering, though it has been left blank here. The bottom image, situated at a right-hand angle, as if to enclose a portion of text, depicts a wood nymph entwined in a thorny spray of roses and brambles, with Rackham's initials worked into the foliage below the nymph. It is probable that Rackham purchased this plain vellum-bound book for this purpose while holidaying in the village of Walberswick, Suffolk, where he often stayed (this book was originally "acquired from a private source in Southwold", the nearby town). The binding itself, executed in an amateur, though not unappealing, style, was likely originally a gift from two pupils to a governess or tutor, bearing a gift inscription on the first blank in childish handwriting, "To Miss Daniel, with love from Agatha & Edith" (the book itself was first published in 1899, and this is a later printing). The drawing has been authenticated by both Robin Greer, president of the Arthur Rackham Society, and Richard Riall, Rackham's bibliographer, and is accompanied by a letter of provenance. We have not traced any other vellum binding by Rackham illustrated with this unusual technique of applying colour directly to the surface of the vellum. The more commonly encountered method for illustrating vellum is the vellucent technique, developed by Cedric Chivers of Bath sometime around 1903. He invented a way to treat vellum so that it became translucent ("vellucent"): the cover design would be painted on a separate sheet and then a thin sheet of translucent vellum would be laid over it. This has the advantage of protecting the original artwork below, whereas applying the design directly leaves the artwork vulnerable. Several of Rackham's works have been presented in Chivers bindings, though, as far as we know, Rackham did not execute any vellucent bindings himself.

         [Photo Album]: Wooster University 1910

      Wooster, Ohio, 1910. Good. Oblong quarto. Gray cloth over paper boards measuring 10" x 9" with "In those happy days of yore" and the image of a woman stamped on the front board. Contains 174 sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs affixed to stiff gray paper, the images measuring between 1.5" x 3" to 7" x 9.5" with some captions. A good only photo album with tears and loose pages with very good or better photographs with some tears.A photo album kept by a woman who attended Wooster University in Wooster, Ohio from 1907 until she graduated in 1910. Many of the photos show women around campus posing for the camera and caught being silly in candids. There are dorm room photos with walls covered in pennants and girls huddled together in bed smiling. One photo shows a girl in a silly costume with devil horns and a pitch fork. The women held numerous costume parties where they dressed as Native Americans, pilgrims, and a marching band. Featured throughout the album are numerous picnics and walks through the surrounding woods with oak leaves laid in. An early photo booth style strip of a young woman is featured as well. The woman who compiled the photos was clearly a student in the theater department. One group of photographs shows women who are part of an opera in 1908 dressed in kimonos with fans. A collection of 32 photographs, most 8" x 5.5", show three performances at the Phoenix Playhouse including "The Rivals," "Quality Street," and "Two Gentlemen of Verona." These photos show women acting in all the parts with elaborate scenery. Another section of 18 photos labeled "Senior Play June 1910" show the women outside dressed in medieval costumes possibly performing a King Arthur play, including a photo of two women in a romantic embrace, for the performance, of course. Two of the outdoor photos were combined to form a panoramic shot of the performance. Another panoramic photo shows the girls of the senior class in a row, dressed identically, holding each others waists.Wooster University was started in 1866 by Presbyterians and was founded with the theory that it would be open to anyone who qualified which included four women at it's founding. The first Ph.D. at the school was awarded to a woman in 1882 and in the same decade the first black student attended. This album was compiled after several years of refurbishment and reconstruction around the campus after a fire in 1901 destroyed many of the original buildings.An extensive album depicting a woman's education at a forward thinking university which stood by the belief that women and minorities deserved an equal chance to further their education.

         TURKEY – PERGAMON / CLASSICAL ARCHAEOLOGY: PLAN DE L’ACROPOLE DE PERGAME COPIÉ BASSÉ SUR CELLE DE INSTITUT ARCHÉOLOGIQUE ALLEMAND AVEC QUELQUES NOTES SURE PERGAME MODERN DE CONSERVATEUR DES ANTIQUES A. G. SOFIANO.

      [n.p., circa ]. 1910 - Chromolithograph in 3 colours (Good, minor stains, some wear with splitting and tiny holes along original folds since closed from verso with archival tape), 60 x 45 cm / 23.5. x 18 inches. A very rare and fascinating separately-issued map of the Acropolis of the Pergamon, one of the greatest archaeological sites of Classical antiquity, located near modern Izmir, Turkey, based upon the pioneering excavations of the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut, plus more recent observations, with text in 5 languages, compiled by the conservator Aristodème G. Sofiano. This very rare, separately issued map showcases the Acropolis of Pergamon, one of the greatest sites of Classical antiquity, and since the late 19th Century one of the Mediterranean’s most impressive archaeological sites. Pergamon is located near the city of Bergama, not far from Izmir, Turkey, about 26 km inland from the modern-day shores of the Aegean Sea. The map, bearing text in 5 languages (French, Ottoman Turkish, Greek, English and German), focuses closes upon the ancient acropolis (orientated with the east at the top), which occupies the top of a plateau. The map is largely taken from plans made by German archaeologists in the 1880s, supplemented with more recent discoveries. The large compound is enclosed in walls, and features two major concentrations of buildings, located at the eastern and western ends of the plateau. Even 1,500 years after the Pergamon’s heyday, the city features many large and impressive edifices. Labelled in German directly on the map are various highlights, including the locations of the Theatre, the various walls, the Gymnasion, the Market and the location of the famous Great Altar. The key labels 39 additional sites by number. While the map is not dated, it was, based on its style and content, clearly issued a short time before World War I, likely around 1910. The typography is of that time and, on the verso, below the title are a series of statistics relating to the region’s population and economy that accord to the pre-war period. Notably, it records that the modern town of Pergamon (today’s Bergama) had a population of 19,330, of which a little over 60% was made up by ethnic Turks, a little over 30% by ethnic Greeks, while the balance was made up of Jews and Armenians. This demographic make-up would change dramatically following the Turkish War of Independence (1919-22), when the vast majority of the region’s Greek and Armenian residents were expelled. Ottoman Turkish scrip, as employed on the present map, was to be replaced with Turkish written in Latin characters in 1927. The map was compiled by Aristodème G. Sofiano, a conservator of antiquities. We have not been able to learn much about Sofiano, other than that he published a book on the ancient city some years later, Pergame Moderne et Antique avec plan-carte-gravures (Athens, 1930). Pergamon rose to prominence during the Hellenistic Period when, from 281 to 133 BC, it served as the capital of the Kingdom of Pergamon, a small state made fabulously wealthy by trade. Pergamon reached its height under Roman Imperial rule and was home to about 200,000 inhabitants, possessing the second largest library in the Classical world (after Alexandria) . It was also a major early centre of Christianity, and appears in the Book of Revelations as being one of the ‘Seven Churches of Asia’. Pergamon suffered a sharp decline in the Middle Ages and the receding shoreline of the Aegean left it far inland. The city was eventually abandoned, and the grand edifices were permitted to become overgrown. While the location of the ancient city was never forgotten, Pergamon was totally neglected until the German engineer Karl Humann (1839 - 1896) visited the site in 1864-5. Humann became completely enchanted by Pergamon and intervened to protect the marble ruins from the looting that had recently recommenced. He drummed up support in Berlin to have Pergamon properly excavated and protected, recieving financial su

         THE TALE OF MRS. TITTLEMOUSE

      1910 - London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1910. Original blue-grey paper-covered boards with hexagonal pictorial onlay. First Edition of Beatrix Potter's tale about a wood-mouse named Thomasina Tittlemouse. The tale tells of her attempts to keep her underground home neat and tidy in spite of various unexpected visitors ("friends" they were called in the manuscript: this was changed to "visitors" in the book, but even more appropriate would be "intruders"). These include bees, a beetle, a ladybug, a butterfly, a spider and of course the debonair toad Mr. Jackson. The manuscript also included three wood-lice, but Warne objected that such creatures did not belong in a children's book; so they are instead described as "three creepy-crawly people" in the book.~There were actually two printings during (and dated) 1910, but they are identical; the third was not until 1911. Customers were given the choice of buying MRS. TITTLEMOUSE in blue-grey or cream paper-covered boards priced at 1/-, or in decorated cloth priced at 1/6. For this title the pictorial paste-down endpapers were revised to their present-day design, showing Mrs. Tittlemouse and a bee in the upper right corner of each paste-down.~This is a fine, attractive copy, with scarcely any wear at all (spine very slightly darkened). Linder pp 205-207 and p. 429; Quinby 18. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         FIVE PIECES OF EXCEPTIONALLY WELL-DRAWN, HUMOROUS POSTAL FOLK ART; Five hand-illustrated envelopes by an artist identified only as "F. R." that were sent to members of the Allen family of Massachusetts and New Hampshire

      Various New England and New York locations 1910 - The envelopes range in size from 4.25" x 2.75" to 5.75" x 3.75". All of the artwork is in black ink, and two of the designs incorporate the cover's stamp into its design. Stamps include two 3-cent Washingtons from the mid-1860s (Scott #65), a 3-cent locomotive from 1869 (Scott #114), a 3-cent Washington from the 1870s (Scott #147), and a 2-cent Washington from the 1910s (Scott Type A140). All are in nice shape; two of the envelopes were trimmed along the right edge when opened. The clever artwork appears to have drawn by the same person over a span of 50 years. The first shows a panicked rider on a runaway horse and is captioned "No exercise I find is milder, more charming and stirring to the intellect of a student than Horseback-Riding." ride Chesterfield's letters." (No doubt a reference to Lord Chesterfield's letters to his son.) The second is of a scholar in top-hat and tails absorbed in a book while walking down the middle of a railroad track oblivious to a freight train that is rapidly approaching from behind. It is captioned, "Theoretical Theology." The third has a drawing of a man dressed in somewhat tattered clothes carrying a large bundle under his arm. It is captioned "Ye 'Job Lot' man 'hopeful.'" The fourth features a pugnacious sailor in a boxing stance next to a postmarked Washington stamp which is affixed so it appears to be lying on the deck of a ship. It is captioned, "See Here Now!! Stop That! It is bad enough to give Geo. Washington a licking without then stamping on him." And the last shows a wagon, with a stamp affixed crookedly behind, being chased down by two men who are shouting, "Hi! You've dropped your stamp!". A very nice collection of postal art drawn by a witty and skillful artist.

         Umfangreicher eigenhändiger Nachlass von über 60 Briefen und 88 postalisch gelaufenen Postkarten an die eigene Familie und besonders an die Nichte Käthe Uphues in Sassenberg. Bis auf wenige Ausnahme mit der Signatur des Künstlers als Joseph oder JUphues. Der westfälische Bildhauer wurde 1882 Meisterschüler von Reinhold Begas, für den er auch von 1885 bis 1891 als Gehilfe im Privatatelier arbeitete. Ab 1892 machte er sich selbstständig. 1899 erhielt er den Titel Professor und wurde Mitglied der Berliner Secession. Um die Jahrhundertwende zählte er zu den erfolgreichsten Bildhauern Deutschlands mit Aufträgen in Berlin, Wiesbaden, Potsdam usw. Seine guten Beziehungen zum deutsche Kaiserhaus waren für seine Karriere förderlich. In der vorliegen

      Diverse Orte, 1891 - 1910. - unterschiedliche Größen. Ein- bis vierseitige Briefe auf unterschiedlichen Papieren in Klarsichthüllen in Ordner. Teils farbige, teils lithographische Postkarten mit hauptsächlich topographischen Ansichten. Ganz überwiegend in tadelloser Erhaltung. Aus Düren schreibt Uphues wohl 1891 an "Mein liebes Mütterchen! Seit 8 Tagen bin ich schon hier in Düren um das Bismarck Denkmal aufzustellen welches heute in 8 Tagen um 12 Uhr enthüllt werden soll. (.) Ich wohne bei Herren Philipp Schoeller in einem Schloß (.) Die Leute die mindestens 50fache Millionäre sind tragen mich förmlich auf Händen ." Im Nachsatz dieses Briefes schreibt Uphues "Meine neue Adresse ist: Berlin Wilmersdorf Pfalzburger Str. 86." Diese Aussage korrigiert das in der Dissertation von Brigitte Kaul: 'Joseph Uphues. Ein Bildhauer im wilhelminischen Zeitalter und sein Werk' angegebene Umzugsdatum von 1894. Ebenfalls aus Düren schreibt U. am 15.5.1900: "Erst hatte ich drei Wochen eine Familie aus Düren in Berlin von denen ich die Büsten zu machen habe, dann kamen Schoellers 14 Tage nach Berlin (.) und mußte dann mit Schoellers von Berlin nach hier fahren um einige Sachen auszustellen. (.) Nun ist auch noch das Dumme, daß ich bei meiner Rückreise nicht kommen kann, da ich schon am 16. nach Wiesbaden muss wo ich eingeladen bin die Festspiele in Gegenwart des Kaisers bei zu wohnen die bis zum 23. Mai dauern." Zwei Jahre später aus Berlin: "Ihr glaubt nicht wie ich an allen Ecken und Kanten angebettelt und angepumpt werde. (.) Es sind eben sehr schlechte Zeiten und die meisten Bildhauer hier haben nichts zu thun da muß man schon seinem Schöpfer danken daß man Arbeit hat und muß auch etwas opfern". Aus "Nordernei" schreibt U. am 31.7.1903: "Ende August gehen wir auf drei Wochen nach Paris wo ich etwas zu thun habe." Am 31.3.1904 aus Berlin: "Ich weiß nicht ob ich euch geschrieben habe, daß am 1. Oktober die Enthüllung von meinem Friedrich dem Großen in Amerika stattfinden soll. Anfangs Mai wenn der Kaiser zurückkommt wird es festgestellt werden ob und wann ich hingehe. (.) da am 1. Mai in Wiesbaden die Festspiele sind wohin ich jedenfalls wenigstens zum ersten Tag hingehen werde und dort auch den Kaiser sehe, vielleicht kann ich dann die Sache mit ihm besprechen." Am 28.8.1904 trifft Uphues ein schwerer Schicksalsschlag: ".als ich zwei Tage hier war bekam ich ein Telegramm daß Herr Schoeller an Lungenlähmung plötzlich gestorben sei. (.) Es ist für uns nach allen Richtungen hin der größte Verlust der uns treffen konnte. Hätte er noch einige Jahre gelebt dann wäre ich von allen Sorgen befreit gewesen." Am 4.3.1905 aus Berlin: "Ich bin jetzt an drei Stellen mit aufbauen der Denkmäler beschäftigt, das große Kaiser Friedrich Denkmal für Charlottenburg das große Moltke Denkmal am Königsplatz und das Schiller Denkmal in Wiesbaden." Am 4.5.1905 aus Berlin: "Die Friedrich Enthüllung in Charlottenburg dürfte gegen den 30. Mai sein. Der Kaiser bestimmt den Tag noch. (.) Morgen abend, Freitag fahren wir nach Wiesbaden zur Schiller Enthüllung." Sehr interessant ist auch die folgende bisher nicht beschriebene Verbindung: "Wir waren heute vor 8 Tagen in Neu-Kaliss beim Geheimrath Bausch ." Im Februar 1908 macht die Familie Uphues eine Ägyptenreise. Davon zeugen besonders drei ausführliche Briefe auf dem Briefpapier der Nile Company: "Dann sind wir nach Kairo gefahren, das stellenweise unvergleichlich schön und großartig ist aber auch eben so unvergleichlich verkommen und gräßlich." Am 28.8.1909 berichtet U. von folgendem Ereignis: "Am Sonnabend ist hier der große Zeppelin Tag und wird ganz Berlin auf Stützen stehen. Da wir um die selbe Zeit durch Bitterfeld fahren wenn der Zeppelin dort abfährt so ist es nicht ausgeschlossen, daß wir ihn schon auf der Fahrt nach Berlin sehen können, da der Ballon den selben Weg nehmen muß. Um 5 Uhr sind wir in Berlin und um 5 Uhr hat Zeppelin sich beim Kaiser in Berlin angemeldet." 60 Briefen liegt eine vollständige Deskribierung bei. Die 88 Postkarten s
