Mecca-Cairo Ephemera. Very Good. No Binding. Fine handmade Silver ring dedicated "from the Sherif Hussein, Emir of Hejaz to (Sir Henry) McMahon". carved and enameld in gold, with natural stone contains natural formation shows a man riding on a lion inside jungle, and the stone is fixed by lion claws shapes. The McMahon–Hussein Correspondence, or the Hussein–McMahon Correspondence, was an exchange of letters (14 July 1915 to 30 January 1916) during World War I, between Hussein bin Ali, Sharif of Mecca, and Sir Henry McMahon, British High Commissioner in Egypt, concerning the political status of lands under the Ottoman Empire. Growing Arab nationalism had led to a desire for independence from the Ottoman Empire. In the letters Britain agreed to recognize Arab independence after WWI "in the limits and boundaries proposed by the Sherif of Mecca", not including areas in which France had interests.

Jerusalem, British Mandated Palestine, 1936. Evidential to the roots of Middle Eastern terror, this is the extraordinary handwritten diary of Miss Doreen M. C., daughter of General and Mrs. J. C., sister of Cynthia. This British family witnesses the very beginnings of the modern era of Middle East tensions and terrorism having been residents of Jerusalem from January 1st to mid-June of 1936. Doreen writes a significant, extraordinary, insightful and well written diary. A young girl of 16 or 17 we estimate (too young for boys - she detests them - and too old for the usual games that girls play [paraphrase]) she writes of her time spent traveling throughout British mandated Palestine recording daily her comings and goings and all that goes on around her. She also does a great job drawing maps and other illustrations. Doreen sums it up in her own hand: in a handwritten copy of a 1963 letter to the famed Leonard Mosley of the Sunday Times, found in the book Doreen admits to having in 1936 "a passion for keep ...

A unique and important artifact of his childhood. [ALBERT EINSTEIN]. Ephemera. Set of Anker-Steinbaukasten children's building blocks by F. Ad. Richter & Cie., Rudolstadt, [Germany], c.1880s. Approximately 160 composite quartz sand, chalk, and linseed oil blocks in red, limestone and slate gray, in various sizes and shapes, together with three or more sets of building plans, all contained in two wooden boxes with printed Anker-Steinbaukasten labels. Einstein spent his childhood building "complicated structures" with these Anker-Steinbaukasten blocks. Accepting his later theory that "Imagination is more important than knowledge," the toys that encouraged his imagination became building blocks for the most important scientific theories of the last millennium. His sister Maja Winteler-Einstein, describing his childhood, recalled that "The games he played … were very characteristic of Albert's capacities. These were mostly puzzles, fretsaw work, the erection of complicated structures with the we ... Read more

A FAMED ENGLISH EXPLORER IN THE WILD WEST. Albert Hastings Markham (1841-1918), a distinguished officer in the Royal Navy, is best known for his role in the British Arctic Expedition of 1875-76. Leading a sledge party attempting to reach the North Pole, Markham achieved a Farthest North, surpassing Parry's mark set in 1827. The newly-promoted Captain Markham then secured an eight-month leave for an exploration of the American prairies. "He made arrangements to join a United States Cavalry Regiment at Fort Sill, in the Indian Territory, with the nominal objective of scouting after a hostile band of Apache Indians" (Markham, The Life of Sir Albert Hastings Markham).This tremendous illustrated manuscript journal details Markham's adventures in the Old West. His journey takes him from Liverpool to New York by Cunard steamer, then to Wisconsin to see his mother, who had emigrated there, and on to St Louis. He continues into Indian Territory, traveling by rail and then stage to Fort Sill. For four weeks, accompanie ... Read more

Nuremberg: J. Petreius, 1545. Sole known copy of a prediction pamphlet for 1546 with the first reference to Copernicus printed in German as well as the first reference to helioicentrism in a vernacular language. The now little-known astronomer Achilles Gasser was intimately connected with the rise of heliocentrism through his patronage of Georg Rheticus, Copernicus’ student, who facilitated the 1543 publication of De Revolutionibus. Gasser was one of the first to read Copernicus’ completed work, as its printer, Johann Petreius (who also published the present pamphlet), sent Gasser a copy. The present edition of the Practica is unique in its early use of the German vernacular to promote Copernicus’ importance, as well as in its choice of a popular context (ie a farmer’s almanach).The Copernicus reference appears in Gasser’s letter to Caspar Joachim Täntzl, a Tyrolean nobleman whose family mining business brought him an amateur interest in science. The dedicatory letter was likely composed in Ge ... Read more

HOLLAND NETHERLANDS UTRECHT WINNIPEG CANADA, 1940. On offer is a superb, original manuscript diary of a 64 year old woman, Wilhelmina Hendrica E. Klyn [nee Roomer], a Dutch mother from Winnipeg Canada who began a visit to Holland just as the second World War broke out and she became trapped - a prisoner of the Third Reich's occupation of the Netherlands! Mrs. Klyn writes in specifics, a quite densely written and detailed record of everything that she saw, heard, read and gossiped with her family and friends to document her experience in Holland during the Occupation. Historians and researchers of this horrible time will be hard pressed to find so extensive a detailed telling: over 200 leaves approximately and the diary has a scrapbook like quality given the profusion of ephemera including documents, letters, clippings and photos making for 260 pages or so of daily entries in a pair of large 10.5 x 8 inch notepads.

The only recorded copy of the only surviving Dutch-language broadside published before ca. 1590 concerning indulgences: a calendar indicating the days throughout the year when indulgences of various kinds could be "earned", presumably by making payments to the Church, either at the seven "station churches" in Rome or at churches elsewhere. The calendar begins on Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), which, during Leo X's reign (1513-1521), fell in the period 12 February to 7 March, and ends with the third Sunday in Advent, which would fall in the period 11 to 17 December. The two columns have 96 entries, most for a specific day but some for periods. The last entry (following the third Sunda ... Read more

1888. Unbound. Near Fine. Four page Autograph Letter Signed ("Helen A. Keller"). Four leaves, each approximately 7" x 9" painstakingly lettered in pencil on rectos only. Old folds from mailing, a couple of folds have been lightly and professionally strengthened on the versos. One of the earliest letters written by Keller, when she was just seven years old, sent from her Tuscumbia, Alabama home to Michael Anagnos, the Director of the Perkins Institute for the Blind. Anagnos had sent Anne Sullivan to Tuscumbia to teach Keller how to speak, read, and write. It was only the previous summer that Anne Sullivan had arrived at the Keller home to begin working with the young deaf and blind girl. Within a few months of working with Sullivan, Helen's vocabulary had increased to hundreds of words and simple sentences. Sullivan taught Helen how to read Braille and raised type, and to print block letters. This letter, dated "May 3rd, [1888]" is published in full in Keller's autobio ... Read more
