Cooper writes mostly about activities over the Christmas holidays. Cooper mentions
that an elderly Chinese in one of the outstations was distraught because his son had
been kidnapped by bandits and was being held for ransom. Grady then generalizes,
"China is very bad now with such people who menace the lives of their own people
and everybody else. But fortunately we live in one of the best sections in China."
Cooper was born near China Grove, Virginia and, after receiving his Ph.D. from The
Hartford Seminary in 1927, served as a missionary in Shantung from 1928-1948
following which he taught at Newberry College in South Carolina. [85302] $125

173. Edwards, Ogden. Typescript about Some Experiences in the Philippines during
Several Decades beginning in the 1850's. Undated. 24 pages in all of an unsigned
carbon copy of typescripts, parts of which bear various titles ("Getting Started in
Manila," "Some Philippine Experiences," "Through the Interior of the Philippines,"
"Don Juan Davila," "The Loss of the Malespina," "Horsemanship," "The Cholera," "A
Journey through Java," and "Garibaldi." These anecdotal accounts appears to be
unpublished as far as we could determine although some or all of them could have
appeared in periodicals. Edwards was initially employed by the American Company
of Peele, Hubbell & Co. when he arrived in the Philippines in 1852 and eventually
became a partner and then a co-owner of that firm. He served briefly as American
Consul (1855-1856) and somewhat longer as Danish Consul (1854-1860) in Manila.
Edwards returned to the United States for good in 1888 after the bankruptcy of the
firm in 1887. Also included are four holograph items: two four-page family letters (on
a single sheet folded to form two 13 x 21cm. sheets) written from Manila by Ogden's
wife Nellie to her sister-in-law "Fanny" (the first, dated April 21st, 1862, mentions her
pregnancy and her wish that she could have a "truly white woman (of whatever
nation) to aid me in the care of our child" and the second, dated 4th February
[probably 1864], talks of her 20 month old daughter K's "fine color and firm and
abundant flesh" and of "her lassie's talking power"); a somewhat difficult-to-read
twelve-page letter [written on small sheets in 1858 to "Fannie" by Nellie's sister-inlaw Anna Louisa Edwards; and, a Certified Memorandum of the Baptism of Ogden
and Nellie's infant daughter Catherine Shepherd Edwards on Nov. 18, 1862 by
Richard Croker, chaplain of the HMS Sanspareil. The University of Notre Dame owns
an archive of material relating to Ogden's brother Robert who was killed in the Civil
War which contains several letters sent from Manila by Ogden to his brother and
other family members. [85441]

came to Japan with a daughter who was in the custody of his former wife. A legal
battle ensued. The former wife appears to have been unsuccessful in her attempts to
have her former husband extradited to face serious charges in the U.S.A. We saw
nothing in this book relating to the abduction or subsequent proceedings and found
nothing online as to who was given custody of the child. [82702]

259. Jacob, Samuel Swinton, Sir. Jeypore Portfolio of Architectural Details. [Parts I-VI
only]. London: Bernard Quaritch, 1890. 1st ed. The first six parts only (of an eventual
12 -- the other six were published over the next 23 years). Each volume (Part) consists
of: (1) a title-page; (2) a single-page preface (repeated in each Part) on the back of
which appears a Contents list for that volume; (3) 1-4 pages containing Short
Descriptive Notes about the plates; and (4) the plates of architectural details. There are
a total of 374 plates in these six volumes. 348 of those plates are printed completely
in black and white while the other 26 are either printed in color or have one or more
detail printed in color. The title-pages and plates are printed on one side. The former
owner of this set didn't like having the plates and other contents loose in portfolio
volumes and constantly at risk of chipping and other loss or damage from mishandling
so he had a binder individually stub every page and uniformly bind these six parts in
31
modern buckram in 1966. Receipts indicate that he paid $125 for the set and spent
another $315 to have them rebound. These are large folio-sized volumes (54cm.).
Minor cover scuffing and wear only. The plates generally show only minor age-toning
and an occasional minor edge repair and perhaps a couple of corner chips or repairs.
Two plates in Part IV have been bound in out of order (plate 3 appears after plate 5
and plate 47 after plate 54). A typed list identifying the localities in India where the
architectural details in these six volumes were located was prepared by the former
owner and mounted on the verso of the title-leaf in Part I. Fine. Part I. Copings and
Plinths; Part II. Pillars -- Caps and Bases; Part III. Carved Doors; Part IV. Brackets;
Part V. Arches; and Part VI. Balustrades. These volumes were published under the
patronage of Maharaja Sawai Madhu Singh of Jeypore. Jacob is identified as
Engineer to the Jeypore State. According to the Preface: "The lads who have been
employed in preparing the drawings are all natives of Jeypore, trained first in the
School of Art, and then in the office of the Executive Engineer." [83887]

inserted one to a page beneath acetate overlays on both sides of all 10 album leaves.
Leaves striped, probably with a mild adhesive to hold photos in place. Printed caption
beneath each photo. Blue album (27 x 33cm.). Metal comb binding. Appears to have
been prepared for one or more American officers who attended these ceremonies
which took place Sept. 29 through October 2nd, including a couple photos captioned

437. [Photo Album]. American Sailor on the USS Samar on the Yangtze River and
Elsewhere in the Far East, 1945-1946. [our title]. Approximately 200 photos in
corner mounts on both sides of the album leaves. Includes about 130 of taken while
he was serving on the USS Samar or on his way to or from the United States. Size
varies: 84 are approximately 8 x 5cm., 35 much smaller (3 x 4cm.), and 14 much larger
(24 x 17cm.). Only a handful or less are captioned. Detail is generally very good, with
some exceptions. Also included are some bits of ephemera. There are a few empty
slots but they may have held ephemera, some of which is now loose in the album.
Sturdy black album is approximately 21 x 26cm. The U.S.S. Samar was converted by
the Bethlehem Steel Company from the former Maritime Commission Hull No. 2663
and rechristened in June 1945. In its new incarnation, it was a repair ship seeing
service on the Yangtze River in late 1945 and perhaps elsewhere in China. Our sailor,
identified in the album, served as a Machinist's Mate 3rd Class. The large photos
appear to be professional quality photos of the ship's neatly attired personnel. Most
of the other Far Eastern photos are of people and places in China rather than
shipboard activities. The ephemera includes: (1) a program for the ship's
rechristening; (2) an issue to The China Press for 12/2/1945; (3 & 4) two issues of
The Samar Scope (Vol. I, No. 1 for 9/1/45 and Vol. II, No. 6 for 6/1/46); (5) a
shipboard menu for Christmas 1945; (6) an oriental-themed Christmas greeting card
sent home for Christmas 1945 by our sailor; and (7) An undated four-page "China
Bowl Supplement" issued by The Stars and Stripes, presumably for the 1945 football
game and accompanying rickshaw derby. The other 72 photos at the end appear to
be of Camp Peary, and our sailor’s wife and family, probably taken before his
departure for the Far East or after his return. The stateside photos include some
ephemera relating to our sailor's military service. [85577]

438. [Photo Album]. An American Soldier (PFC) in India July 1942 to July 1943. [our
title]. 175 photographs plus 21 postcards pasted down, 3 to 9 to a page, on both sides
of album leaves. Most photos are modest-sized (6 x 8cm. or so). Some pages are a bit
crowded. Most of the photos are commercially produced images of people and scenes
throughout in India although a minority (we counted 37) are amateur photos. Black
tied oblong album with padded covers (30 x 22cm.). Album had a later purple tie and
is moderately worn. The front cover features the "C.B.I. insignia, a caduceus, the
American flag, the former owner's name, and "India 1942-43." Good. Our soldier has
used a color map of South Asia mounted inside the front cover to indicate his travels
in India during his sojourn. A penciled note on the map states: "Stationed on IndiaBurma Border 25 miles from Dibrugarh." Lines on the map indicate that our soldier
arrived in Karachi and went to his assigned post by troop train via Lahore, Delhi,
Calcutta and Shillong and flew back to Delhi and took a troop train to Bombay for his
return to the United States. Online research suggests that our soldier was from Texas.
Most of the amateur photos are of soldiers and medical personnel; several are briefly
captioned. Twelve postcards are in color and feature lots of Indian elephants. One of
the black and white postcards shows uniformed personnel in front of a wrecked
building and is captioned "Babumohalla: Troops on Ambulance Duty." "Jap
Parachute from Assam, India raids" caption between a tiny scrap of cloth among the
photos on one page. [85562]
$250
439. [Photo Album]. American Soldier in Assam in 1943-1944. [our title]. 160 photos
inserted 1 to 14 to a page on both sides of 13 black album leaves. Approximately 1/3
are 4 x 4cm. or a bit larger. The rest range from 8 x 6cm. up to 11 x 8cm. A couple of
postcards as well as 13 small commercial photos of Darjeeling are present but not
included in our count of photos. Quality of photos varies from pretty good to really
mediocre. Ephemera mounted on both sides of a 14th leaf. Leaves heavily chipped
along right edge. Only a handful of captions. Tied, rather inexpensive, brown album
measures approximately 38 x 29cm. Later black tie. Fair. Our soldier comes to Assam
as a Private in the middle of 1943; the latest date in the album seems to be a couple
of receipts relating to Darjeeling in July and August of 1944. A piece of ephemera
relates to his dispatch from the U.S. to India; two others are bills from Upper Assam
and Darjeeling; and there is also a personal-sized typed note from an Associate
Editor at The Saturday Evening Post acknowledging that their picture of a Gurkha in
the Feb. 26th (1944) issue was not really a typical Gurkha and that they should
possibly have made that clear in their caption. Several photos are captioned "Hunting
Trip;" it is unclear what they were hunting although a couple of rather grainy photos
seem to picture an animal that looks like a water buffalo. [85582]

440. [Photo Album]. Nursing at the 159th Station Hospital in Karachi in 1942. [our
title]. Neatly organized and laid out album containing approximately 280 photos in
corner mounts. Photos generally very good. Most are 9 x 6cm. or smaller. Mounted 112 to a page on both sides of album leaves. Assembled by one of the nurses. Many of
the photos or groups of photos are captioned in white ink on the album leaves. Black
oblong cloth album. Later tie. Some wear along left edge of album cover. The final
photo in the album is a large group shot (30 x 13cm.) of 82 nurses which is captioned
"Nurses of the 159th Station Hospital" with inked names below the photo identifying
each nurse by last name. Our nurse never identifies herself by name but she should
be identifiable in the group photo. Elsie Ott, one of the nurses identified in the group
photo, was awarded the first Air Medal ever given to a woman in the United States
Army for her efforts on the first flight early in 1943 to attempt to evacuate severely
wounded personnel from Karachi to Walter Reed Medical Center. Ott is also
identified in two other photos. [85297]

441. [Photo Album]. American Soldier in India in 1944. [our title]. Approximately 90
photos mounted one to a page on both sides of the album leaves. Most are inserted in
corner tabs although some have just been pasted down. Almost all photos
approximately 10 x 7cm. Numerous album leaves detached. Many photos have brief
inked captions in the blank margins -- almost all of which say, at least in part, "India
1944.". A small minority appear to have notes inked on the back although those are
difficult to access. Decent quality amateur photos. Small format album measures only
about 11 x 16cm. Good. The compiler appears to have been Robert Fenn, of Engineer
Division 2. Most of the photos are of Fenn and other military personnel with just a
smattering of non-military photos. Three photos include Lord Mountbatten. A couple
photos include a Chinese. soldier. Mounted inside the back cover is a an unnumbered
certificate identifying Robert Fenn as having "achieved the highest degree of
efficiency in truck driving on the Ledo Road. R. S. Fenn is identified as the designer
of that certificate. Online information indicates that these certificates were never
issued as the name of the route was changed to Stilwell Road before the certificate
was approved for issuance. Almost nothing in the album besides the certificate
suggests that Fenn was involved in this major road building effort which cost a lot
and wasn't used very long since World War II ended soon after its completion.

442. [Photo Album]. American Soldier in Korea Circa 1947. [our title]. About 100 photos
Quite a few are small (5 x 5cm. or smaller). None are large. About 20% have brief
inked captions in image, often identifying some of the people in the photo. Quality of
photos and carelessness in organization are rather typical of a young soldier's album.
There are about 30 empty slots where photos are missing. Oblong tied album has
flexible leather cover. 28 x 18cm. Good. Our soldier appears to have lived in
Oakland, CA. Some personal and family photos are mixed in. There are at least a
couple of photos from the Philippine Islands. One page is titled Korean Constabulary
and has 5 (of 6) small photos. There are at least a handful of photos of Korean
children. Two pages are headed "34th Gen. [34th General Hospital?] which has two
(of 6) photos present, each showing our soldier and a buddy. [85550]
$125
443. [Photo Album]. American Soldier in New Guinea and the Philippines during World
War II. [our title]. Approximately 260 photos. Pasted down, two to six to a page on
both sides of the album leaves. Photo size varies although most range between 6 x
8cm. and 8 x 12cm. Image quality and detail generally okay although some photos are
faded or fuzzy. No captions. Three wartime publications are included as well as a three
V-Mail cartoons sent home to his wife in Detroit. Tied oblong album with flexible
maroon covers. 28 x 18cm. Several album leaves detached (splitting). Good. The first
110 photos appear to show our soldier training stateside. The next 30 photos appear
to find our soldier in New Guinea, including a couple of the popular photos showing
soldiers wearing grass skirts. The next 73 find him in the Philippines. The final 46
photos mounted in the album are of rather poor quality and cover his return voyage
to the United States. An envelope mounted on one of the pages contain 20 modest-size
photos from New Guinea. Our photographer doesn't spend much time photographing
those who live in New Guinea or the Philippines. He does include several
photographs, some of which he may have purchased, showing wartime damage to
buildings in the Philippines. The three wartime publications are: (1) Guinea Gold
(American Edition), Vol. 2, No. 305 Sept. 18, 1944); (2) "The Walled City," a 4-page
Sixth Army News Pictorial prepared by the Public Relations Office and probably
published in Manila; and (3) Reveille Thirty-Seventh Infantry Division published by
the I-E Section in Northern Luzon as a stapled 4-page Souvenir Edition dated Sept.
7, 1945 to record the unconditional surrender of all Japanese forces in N.E. Luzon.

444. [Photo Album]. American Soldier in Korea March 1953 through May 1954. [our
title]. 225 photos of his time in Japan and Korea. Almost all have image sizes ranging
between 8 x 11cm. to 10 x 12cm. and are mostly mounted 2-3 to a page on both sides
of the black album leaves. At the end of the album are about 50 family photos (mostly
of the soldier's wife). Most of the photos are mounted by cellophane tape which was
neatly (and invisibly) affixed to the back of the photos; in a minority of cases the tapes
had yellowed and fallen off and those photos have now been glued in. Almost all have
neat typed captions mounted by the same processes (tape or glue) beneath each photo.
Only a couple of photos and a few captions are missing (probably fell out when the
tape lost its stickiness). The album also includes a couple of pieces of Korean
currency, a few dried flowers and some other ephemera accumulated during his time
in Korea. The album (30 x 23cm.) is in decent physical shape with flexible covers and
no loose pages. According to a one-page summary of our soldier's military career
which is mounted on the first page, he was a draftee who was sent to Korea via Japan
in March 1953. The album records shipboard initiation practices, his arrival in
Yokohama and his brief stay at Camp Drake before being sent on to Pusan, Korea
only six days later. Most of the album records his life in Korea (and a bit of R & R in
Japan) during the next 13 months. There is a strong military emphasis to most of the
pictures but our soldier, who had a decent eye as a photographer, also took some
interesting photos of the local Korean population. This is one of the better Korean
War albums we have seen. Our soldier was assigned to IX Corps Headquarters in the
Medical Section so never saw combat but did rise to the rank of Corporal before being
rejected for a Sargeant's stripes. According to brief online research, he studied
engineering after completing his military obligation and had a successful career at
a major corporation. Our lowly soldier and his wife made a seven figure bequest to
their daughter's alma mater in their wills. [85498]

445. [Photo Album]. Our Honeymoon Around the World. [cover title]. n.p.: 1910.
Contains 22 large commercial color photos, 172 smaller (snapshot up to medium)
color photos, 1 large folding black & white photo, 47 smaller black & whites (snapshot
up to medium) and 4 color postcards. All photos are glued in (often just at corners).
Quality of images varies greatly from professional to fuzzy. Almost all large photos
captioned in or beneath the image as are a modest minority of the other photos.
Japanese lacquer album, lacking backstrip and a few decorative pieces on front cover
(a few others are held on by cellophane tape). The album is about 10cm. thick (4
inches) at spine but much less along the fore-edge as at least half of the album leaves
have been removed, including several whole sections. There is evidence of removal
of only a few photos from the leaves that are present. Fair. The large black & white
photo (starting to split at fold) at the beginning of the album is of the Wedding
Breakfast for Mr. and Mrs. Adolph G. Kaufman at Delmonico's on May 23, 1910. Mr.
Kaufman appears to have been President and Manager of the A. G. Kaufman
Manufacturing Company, makers of gas lamps and appliances, at 133 Reade Street in
New York City. The next 27 small photos are post wedding pictures going cross
country and sailing to Japan on the S. S. Korea. Most of the middle part of the album
is a mixture of photos of the honeymooning couple in Japan and various commercial
photos , especially of Nikko and to a much lesser extent Kyoto. The large color photos
are all of temples and other scenes in and around Nikko. Captions and style lead us to
believe that some or all of these large photos came from Kusakabe Kimbei, a Japanese
photographer and seller of photographs. After a gap of missing pages, there are about
a dozen photos taken in China followed by a large gap, and then about 25 photos of
the Philippines with another large gap at the end. [85378]

446. [Photo Album]. British Album with Many Photos of Junks and Other Sailing and
Steam Powered Boats in and Near Early 20th Century China. [our title]. n.d. [ca.
1906]. 98 photos, all except two found inserted into the two photo windows per page
on both sides of the 24 album leaves. The other two photos have been mounted inside
front and back cover of the album. Photos are of uniform size (10 x 8cm.) and are a
bit dark but generally have good detail. All photos that we removed have a penciled
note on the back -- a bit of a chore to remove each photo to see what is written on the
back. There are also some brief pencil captions or notes. Moderately worn, modestsized album bound in blue cloth. Album leaves are approximately 15 x 22cm. and have
some chipping along edges where photos are inserted. Contents reasonably sound
although the front cover and first album leaf are split loose from the rest of the leaves.
Good. Most of the photos are of various boats and water scenes. Among the subjects:
several photos of junks and Western sail boats, Fort Woosung in Shanghai, Russian
cruiser Askold while it was being repaired in Shanghai. British gunboat, French
cruiser at KiuKiang [Jiujiang] just after a murder in Nanchang, Orphan Rock (on the
Yangtse), a few Westerners (British?) including a couple photos on board the Way
Foong, Fort Woosung in Shanghai, pagodas, a Chinese garden in Macao, North
Saddle Light House (Shanghai), etc. Two photos appear to relate to Japan (Inland Sea
of Japan at Moji and Japanese Craft in the Inland Sea). [85536]

447. [Photo Album]. British Captain in Singapore in 1946. [our title]. 115 photos, mostly
in corner mounts, 1-6 to a page on both sides of thin album leaves. Photos generally
6 x 8cm. - a few larger. By far the largest photo (approximately 27 x 21cm.) is a group
shot of what appears to be the medical/military personnel in front of a long building.
Decent quality with reasonable detail. Inked captions on album leaves for most photos
-- some photos also have identifying notes on back. Album leaves in an oblong blue
three ring notebook. 27 x 21cm. Our soldier appears to have been a Captain Spafford
who may have been a dentist. The first 16 photos are a combination of photos taken
in and around Colombo and then Poona. Most of the photos were taken in and around
Singapore and Palembang while the Captain was there in 1946. The last 15 photos
were taken on his homeward journey in 1947 on the "Queen of Bermuda." One of the
other photos was taken just a bit after the largest photo and is of some of the nurses
in the larger photo -- pencil notation on back Singapore 1946. Laid in are 8 pieces
of Singapore/military ephemera (programs for plays, menus, invitations, etc.). One of
the menus is for the Main Officer Mess, Tanglin Christmas 1946 and is signed on the
back by about 20 individuals. [85363]

448. [Photo Album]. India & Egypt 1927-28. [title inked on front cover]. 48 photos
mounted (pasted down), of which seven appear to be photo postcards. The photos are
generally mounted two to a page, on both sides of the twelve album leaves (one is
mounted inside the back cover. Almost all photos are in the general range of 11 x
8cm.; a couple are quite a bit smaller and one is quite a bit larger (21 x 16cm.). Photos
clear with very good detail but without much flair -- mostly standard sights
competently taken without anything personal in the images. No captions. Oblong
album with slender paper-covered boards (25 x 20cm.). 30 photos relate to India and
the last 13 to Egypt. The remaining five are uncertain as to country -- two, including
the largest photo in the album, are of an unidentified outdoor bar and another is of
a couple of buildings, one of which is English Tudor-style and the other has a sign
which appears to say Wallace Flour Mills. The first seven photos in the album are of
the dedication ceremonies for the "Gateway on India" in Bombay [now Mumbai].
Some of the other Indian photos show other famous buildings, such as the Taj Mahal
and the Agra Fort; three show a train engine and the exterior of a passenger car on
the Great Indian Peninsula Railway. Almost all of the Egyptian photos show mosques,
pyramids and/or the Sphinx. [85538]

450. [Photo Album]. British Soldier in Karachi and at the RAF Kohat Airfield in 1945
in the Northwest Frontier Region. [our title]. More than 150 photos displayed, one
to five to a page, on one or both sides of the album leaves. Photos inserted in corner
mounts and not pasted down. A mixture of amateur and professional (for tourists)
photos. Most of the photos are approximately 6 x 8cm. although a few are somewhat
larger. There are also a few postcards. The compiler neatly organized and captioned
the photos in white ink beneath the photos in the first half of the album but failed to
provide any captions for the rest of the album. The album is a Boots Stationery
Department two ring notebook (23 x 28cm.). Several leaves are now detached -- ring
holes need reinforcement. The first 30 photos are of various more or less standard
scenes in Karachi. The next 31 photos are of Kohat and the surrounding area. These
are followed by 10 photos of the Khyber Pass and of a Kohat-Chubbier trip. Next is
a group photo captioned "Personnel of R.A.F. Kohat. X-Mass 1945" which is followed
by 3 photos taken at Tika Gul, Murree Hill. Next are 33 standard photos of famous
sights and scenes elsewhere in British India and 4 postcards showing scenes in
Poona. The captions end and we next have 10 photos of our soldier and a colleague
or two with a truck figuring in some of the pictures -- one of the trucks has a red cross
insignia raising the possibility that our soldier might have been an ambulance driver.
These are followed by two larger (postcard size) photos of uniformed personnel (with
signatures on the back by those pictured). Here we leave British India and end with
a dose of family, friends and scenes in the British Isles (except for 2 pages containing
10 tourist photos of St. Petersburg in Florida with printed captions). [85559] $300
451. [Photo Album]. Thailand and Angkor Wat in the 1950s. [our title]. 104 photos neatly
mounted (two to four on a page) in corner tabs on both sides of the album leaves.
Photos uniform in size (approximately 11 x 7.5cm.). Almost all are high quality photos
with very good detail. No captions. Oblong red album (33 x 24cm.). Album neatly
glued down on back cover in an oblong lacquer box featuring two golden goggle-eyed
goldfish and some aquatic plants on the front cover. The box is in excellent condition
with only a couple of minor chips. The album appears to start in Bangkok. Among the
early photos are a couple of exterior river views of the two story river-facing facade
of The Oriental Hotel followed by four photos that are probably interior shots taken
in that hotel. These are followed by sixteen water view photos of other Thai buildings,
boats and people. The next 19 photos are land based photos of temples, a celebration
(the three blurriest photos in the album), and a boxing match. The next seven photos
appear to have been taken at a snake farm (cobras, banded kraits, etc.). Next are four
country scenes and then a photo of a small tour bus ("Tourisme Vergoz"); "Siem Reap
Nov. 24-28, 1953" inked on back of that photo. The next 41 photos are of Angkor Wat
which is located only a few miles from Siem Reap. The final three photos may have
been taken in Saigon -- one of them is of the Notre-Dame Cathedral in that city.

452. [Photo Album]. Casio Japan Trip September, 1976. [cover title]. Tokyo: 1976. 84
photos inserted 1-6 to a page on both side of 10 self-sticking album leaves under clear
plastic covers. All but 8 photos are in color. Size varies but most are approximately 13
x 9cm. No captions. although there is a printed introductory page addressed to "Dear
CASIO INC. OMD Dealers and signed in type "Casio Computer Co., Ltd." which
suggests that this is an album of photos for the Casio dealers (and their spouses?) taken
during their Japan trip. Most photos are of informal tourist-type activities although the
first several are of the Casio plant and some meetings. [85358]

453. [Photo Album]. HMS Eagle and China and Japan. [our title]. 1930s. 77 photos in a
small oblong Japanese lacquer-type album. A mixture of commercial (for tourists) and
amateur photos. Most photos have decent detail but are generally modest in size (8 x
5cm. up to about 11 x 6.5cm. with just a few a bit larger). Inked captions on small
white label on page near almost half of the photos. The album is far from handsome
and is in rather poor shape with the lacquer on front and back cover substantially
chipped along edges. The backstrip appears to have been replaced with a later leather
strip. 6 photos are missing. Poor. Our sailor appears to have served aboard the HMS
Eagle, an early aircraft carrier of the British Royal Navy which was finished in 1924
and which spent some time in the 1930s assigned to Britain's "China Station." There
are about 40 military-related photos, including several of the HMS Eagle and other
ships. 20 photos are of non-military scenes in China and about 14 are of non-military
scenes in Japan. Among scenes and locations mentioned or pictured in the nonmilitary photos are Nangking [Nanjing], Wei Hei Wei [Weihaiwei], Tsingtao
[Qingdao], Chefoo [Yantai], Hong Kong, Japan, and Mt. Fuji. [85535]

454. [Photo Album]. World War II Album of Hawaii, New Guinea, Philippines and Back
Home Somewhere near Kansas City. [our title]. More than 350 photos, mounted 110 to a page on both sides of album leaves. Most are in corner mounts but some have
cellophane tape around edges and a handful have been glued down. Quality of photos
varies but most are clear with good detail. No captions. Tied oblong brown album.
Approximately 39 x 29cm. Good. Our soldier starts the album with about 13 photos
of basic training at an unnamed location, followed by about 26 photos of Hawaii. 26
of what appears to be New Guinea, and 135 of indeterminate Pacific locations,
including the Philippines and a handful of Japanese photos (probably taken from
captured or killed enemy soldiers). The final 182 photos appear to have been taken
somewhere in Kansas or Missouri after our soldier returned from the War. White
sidewall tires figure in several of the home pictures. The album has no documents or
letters to assist in identifying the photos or their probable location. [85361] $275
455. [Photo Album]. WWII American Soldier's Album Mostly Devoted to Life and
Scenes in India and Titled "Half Way Round the World with Remington"
Approximately 170 photos plus several ills cut from unknown sources. Photos almost
all in corner mounts and generally measure approx. 11 x 6cm. or smaller. Quality of
photos varies but generally clear with decent detail. Most photos or groups of photos
have some sort of captioning or identifying article nearby. A few album leaves
detached and there are missing photos here and there. Scuffed oblong tied album with
faux reptilian patterning (approximately 30 x 22cm.). Fair. Our soldier says he was
inducted in Sept. 1942, arrived in Algeria in Nov. 1943 (about 14 photos) and was
sent on to India early in 1944 and was mostly there until he left for the USA in June
1945. Several photos taken in and around Karagapur and then at Calcutta, followed
by a two month furlough (spent at a rest camp in Raniket, at a hospital in New Delhi
with "yellow jaundice," and on an enthusiastic visit to the Taj Mahal). One detached
album leaf, containing 9 photos of modest quality, is titled "over the Hump into
China" on one side and "Building airfields in China" on the other. [85359] $475

456. [Photo Album]. Late 19th Century Photos of India, Burma and Thailand. [our
title]. 25 photographs, mounted one or two to a page in black corner tabs. Size varies
-- several are about 15 x 10cm. and a modest minority are either much larger or much
smaller. Most appear to be albumens, a few appear to be later reprints. No
photographer's marks but these generally have the sharpness and detail one expects
from quality albumen photos. Thin oblong black album (27 x 18cm.) which appears
to be much newer than the photos. A rather odd collection of photos, united perhaps
by age (in most cases). A few relate to Catholic missionary efforts and all but one
relate to India. Burma or Thailand. Here is a list, based on the notes (mostly in pencil)
written on the backs of the photos: Boys exercising with band at St. Michael's School
(Patna); Bombay scene; Convent Native Nurses (St. John's Hill in Bangalore); a
Maharajah and his advisers in Bhurtpore; Covent Garden (Penang); Mission House
(missionary residence in Rajapore); Floating houses and stores (Bangkok); Bell
Tower of a Wat and a group of Siamese monks; Todas Hill Tribe; Saganig Upper
Burma; Church in Virarajendrapet; Burma Karens/Father Luce; Shan Interpreter &
wife; Conjurors (India?); Royal Lake (Burma); Grinding meal (India?); Mandalay
(2); Kralyar Canal (India); phougyils(??) making their morning rounds begging their
food (appears to be a photo of a photo of monks); Hindu water bearer; group of
Hindus; Native children and teachers - Jesuit mission school Rajapore; Fr. Veulliez's
church Upper Burma; Brass pot merchant (appears to be a later reprint); and
Burmese blacksmith. [85557]

Black and white. A few are loose. The rest are (now in corner mounts). A few have
captions or inscriptions in the image and quite a few of the other larger photos have
been inscribed or dated or both. Decent quality and detail. Several photos have been
removed. Small, tied oblong album; East Asian dragon illustration on front cover. 22
x 14cm. Some cover soiling and wear (ties and cover corners frayed). Former owner's
name written inside front cover along with an address in Wilmington, California.
Photos of the previous owner and her friends -- mostly female. [85452]

458. [Photo Album]. Shipboard, Philippines, Western Camping, Guns, Winter Fun, Etc.,
Etc. [our title]. Over 275 photos pasted down, 3 to 9 per page, on most sides of the
album leaves. Many of the photos are very good while some are a bit fuzzy. Photo size
varies but almost all are 8 x 10cm. or larger. No handwritten captions although there
are a small number of commercial photos which have printed captions. Undated but
probably before 1920. Oblong album (34 x 27cm.). Leather binding, lacking backstrip,
is heavily chipped along bottom on both covers. Several album leaves in the center of
the album are unused. Fair. The first dozen or more are shipboard photos -- perhaps
en route to the Philippines. This is followed by at least 30 photos taken in the
Philippines and possibly more as many of the photos in this and other portions of the
album are of individuals and settings whose location in unclear. A few photos include
men in military attire. The Philippine photos include 8 commercial photos (captions:
Malecon Drive; Canal and Post Office; Mouth of the Pasig River; Fruit Market,
Manila; Along the Pasig; Paco Bone Pile; Family cares; and Boats of the Pasig).
There are more shipboard photos of cheerful folks. Many of the other photos are
interesting family photos in what seem to be western settings (mostly in California).
One page (six photos) is devoted to gun-toting men, women and one small boy. A few
signs show up in the photos: "Tallac" (on a building with Tallac Mountain in the
background); "Paco" (sign by what appears to be a train station); "L. A. Police
Dept." (a banner displayed on the windshield of an open car); and "15 mls to Lake
Tahoe along Truckee River" (on a sign behind a warmly dressed group of five).

459. [Photo Album]. Probably American World War II Album Mostly on China. [our
title]. n.p.: n.d.. Contains 20 narrow oblong photos (16 x 5cm.) and 17 large photos
(generally about 22 x 15cm.) and 17 smaller photos. Most album leaves are unused;
a few leaves have been crudely cut out (removed). The oblong photos and a few of the
other are in corner mounts; almost of the large photos and about half of the smaller
photos are unmounted. No captions. Two-toned cloth album in card slipcase. Good.
A couple of printed items suggests that our soldier started in India and then was in
China. The best photos are probably the oblong photos which are of scenes and
temples on and around a Chinese body of water. The larger photos appear to be
mostly of Chinese buildings and statuary; they are not as sharp and give the
impression that they have been enlarged from smaller photos or perhaps copied. A
folded 6-page tourist leaflet titled "Hangchow, the City of Romance & Scenic Beauty"
is mounted on one of the album leaves. [85362]

460. [Photo Album]. Students of Gordon Poteat at the University of Shanghai in 1937.
[our title]. [Shanghai]: n.d. [1937]. 95 photos, 1-4 to a page, in corner mounts on both
sides of 30 album leaves. Padded album covers. 25cm. Laid in is a coverless 64-page
outline [presumably prepared by Poteat] for Philos 101 for the Fall of 1934 and a
couple of other minor pieces of Chinese ephemera. The album consists of formal
inscribed or signed photos ,as well as other smaller, often less formal photos, of Dr.
Poteat's students at the University of Shanghai where he taught Religion and
Philosophy as a representative of the Northern Baptist Convention. An added note on
one of the photos of a male student says "Killed by bomb 1937. Poteat [1891-1986]
returned to the United States in 1937 to become a Professor of Social Ethics and
Homiletics at Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, Pennsylvania and later was
a Professor of Religion at Bucknell University and Pastor of a local Baptist Church
in Lewisburg, Pa. We don't believe that he ever returned to China. [85373] $950

both side of the first seven stiff card album leaves. 12 additional album leaves are
blank. Brief inked captions on album leaves beneath most photos -- several of the
captions are dated 1913 or 1914. Size of photos varies but generally 10 x 8cm. or
somewhat smaller. Decent quality photos although almost uniformly too dark and
fuzzy for good detail. Worn oblong 1/2 leather album (25 x 19cm.). Backstrip half
gone; balance held on partly by a later leather strip. Fair. Captions indicate that this
album had belonged to a young British fellow who lived in Ceylon on or near a tea
or rubber plantation. Locations mentioned in the captions are Halpe, Noelle, Mt.
Lavinia, Sherbrooke Compound, Kilipoluwa(?), and Rittagoya (appears to be a river
or stream). [85556]

leaves. Photos generally about 15 x 10cm. Brief printed captions in most of the photos.

pasted down, two to a page on both sides of album leaves. Album leaves rather worn,
with chipping along fore-edges. Some page rippling. Photos are black and white as are
many of the postcards. Most of the photographic images, while appealing, are a bit
faint and much less sharply detailed than one would like. No captions except for the
printed captions on some of the postcards. The last 8 album leaves are unused.

Undated but probably sometime in the first quarter of the 20th century. Moderate-sized
oblong album covered in flexible patterned leather (25 x 18cm.). Cover worn along
edges and rubbed. Good. The first 93 images, mostly photos rather than postcards,
appear to relate to India or adjacent areas (a few seem Burmese to us, partly because
the appearance of some of the temples). The next 7 photos and 11 postcards relate to
Egypt or nearby arid settings followed by 12 postcards and 27 photos which relate to
Greece. The final four images (all postcards) relate to China. The South Asian images,
as loosely defined by us, begins with about 30 images that could be non-Indian
followed by scenes of bathing in the Ganges, numerous interior and exterior images
of various antiquities (including several of the Taj Mahal), a few elephants and a few
other images. Our Egyptian images begin with four photos of an unidentified caravan
featuring rather heavily laden camels, followed by postcard images mostly of
antiquities (the Sphinx, pyramids, Karnak and Thebes). The Greek images provide a
strong dose of antiquities and a few images of traditionally attired Greeks including
a black and white photo of a gun-toting young man and a color postcard, captioned
in part "Soldat Grec (Efzonaki)." The final four images are three color postcards of
Chinese scenes and a black and white image of an indeterminately-located street
scene. [85554]

475. [Postcard Album]. British Sailor on the HMS Suffolk in the Far East (China
Station) and West Indies in the Late 1920s. [our title]. Approximately 275
postcards glued down, generally four to a page, on both sides of the album leaves. All
of the cards are commercial and almost all have printed captions in English, Japanese,
French or some combination of those languages. Most are black and white, some are
color and a handful are blue tinted. There are several blank leaves at the end. Oblong
Japanese lacquer-style album (35 x 26cm.) The album cover is in decent shape but the
album leaves open a bit stiffly (probably because the backstrip was recently reglued).
Good. The HMS Suffolk was a county class heavy cruiser in Great Britain's Royal
Navy which was commissioned in 1928 and spent her first 11 years on Britain's
"China Station." The album includes (in this order) 4 postcards of the HMS Suffolk,
4 of Colombo (Sri Lanka), 4 of Singapore, 18 of Hong Kong, 8 of Shanghai, 198 of
61
Japan, 25 of the West Indies, and 19 of France and Monaco. Almost all of the Hong
Kong cards are in color, ten of which feature the Peak Tram and Peak related views.
The Shanghai cards are real photo black and white views, three of which are
captioned. The Japanese cards are a mixture of color and black and white -- they
depict several locales including Inland Sea (8), Shimizu (12), Mt. Fuji (10), Kobe (30),
Ritsurin Koen in Takamatsu (12), Beppu (26), Japan with the Duke of Gloucester in
1929 (9 plus a free tram ride ticket), Tokyo (66), and 1923 earthquake damage in
Yokohama and Tokyo (18). The West Indies cards depict Grenada (6 black & white)
and Trinidad (19 -- all but a couple in color). The French cards are black and white
and are of mostly coastal scenes in Cannes, Nice, Villefranche-sur-Mer, Beaulieu,
Monte-Carlo, Antibes, and Menton. [85546]

or scrapbook. Also included are five smaller photos (about 6 x 10cm.) of soldiers
identified briefly by captions in image. Only four postcards have captions: "141A.
Hospital Stotsenburg P. I.;" Batt. "D" to Quarters;" "View showing Post Exchange and
Artillery Qtrs,;" and [too faded to be certain but probably] "Barracks Camp Gregg."

531. [Scrapbook]. Album of Menus, Programs, Labels, Tickets, Invitations, a Baseball
Scorecard, and Other Bits of Ephemera from the Asian and Pacific Portions of
Hannibal E. Hamlin's Oct. 1909-Feb. 1910 Clark's Cruise Around the World
Cruise on the S. S. Cleveland. All items pasted down, generally 1-2, and
occasionally more, to a page on both sides of the 30 plain white pages. 10 of the 60
sides are unused. Faux 1/4 leather binding (approximately 25 x 31cm.) seems less
grand than one might expect. Hamlin, a son of Abraham Lincoln's first Vice President,
served a Maine's Attorney General (1905-1908). His signature, dated April 1910, is
written inside the front cover and also appears on a few of the tickets and invitations.
He apparently didn't save an awful lot from what must have been a mountain of
ephemera from this cruise. There are 16 menus, the three largest of which are from
Tokyo's Grand Hotel. Eight pages have typed renditions of poems by unknown
authors, presumably Hamlin or fellow passengers, about the Cleveland and their
World Cruise. Two tickets carry room assignments (Room 293 at Shepheard's in Cairo
and 435 at the Taj Mahal Hotel in Bombay. There are several other tickets, with
similar typography for luncheons, excursions, etc. A printed invitation from the
Governor General of the Philippines invites members of The Clark's Tour Party to a
reception. A small, somewhat worn leaflet from the Philippines is titled "Bureau of
Prisons." The unused baseball scorecard is for a game between the 12th and 20th
Infantry on one side and Manila and the 5th Field Artillery on the other. Japanese
ephemera includes, in addition to menus: (1) a booklet about Nagasaki; (2) Welcome
to Kobe from Heizayemon Murata; (30 A Brief History of Osaka Castle plus a worn
folding diagram of the stone walls of that castle; (3) a program of Geisha Dances at
the Miyako Hotel; and (4) a small colorful folded card promoting Samurai Shokai.
Hawaiian items include: (1) a program of Hawaiian Surfing Sports by the Outrigger
Canoe Club; and (2) a folded leaflet listing the churches of Honolulu and Special
Services for Dr. Clark and His Party. [85578]

Armero, a member of a prominent Colombian family, traveled to China after spending
a few years in Cuba and becoming interested in the notorious "coolie trade"
(importing Asian men, often against their will, to labor under horrific conditions in
the Americas). He traveled to China in 1855 via the United States, France and Egypt
and spent the next three years in Southern China observing their customs and also
dispatching several shiploads of Chinese workers to the New World. He devotes
almost fifty pages to his visit to the Holy Land but has little else to say about his
return trip to France. Armero remained heavily, and profitably, involved in the
"coolie trade" for more than a decade after he made this trip. [85496]

know it takes some persuasion to get me into any politics." [85291]
