Description:
Johannesburg: Fritz Fels & Phitidis. Soft cover. Good. Red wraps worn and sl. discol. with piece missing from bottom outer corner. Considering the circumstances and environment in which the register was used the wraps are in surprisingly good condition. Details of claimholder in pencil to front wrap. Records the findings of one Johannes Hermanus Kriel on the farm Elandsputte in the Lichtenburg district for July and August of 1926. Loosely inserted are five receipts from four different diamond buyers for the five small stones Kriel discovered during this period. The pickings for August having been very thin it appears that Kriel abandoned his claim as the rest of the register's forms are blank. One of the leaves is a bit crumpled, but not torn, at the top outer corner and there are occasional small punctures where pins have been used to secure receipts. The completed returns bear the rubber stamp of the Diamond Detective Department - Transvaal. 170 x 215mm. Very scarce ephemera.

Description:
Jerusalem, British Mandated Palestine. Good+. 1936. Original Cloth. 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… Read More

Description:

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… Read More
