Valentine Marionette - Leprechaun  Massachusetts Boatman's Meticulous Journal containing  Milage, Expenses, and Records of Trips for the Polaris, 1911-1919. F. W. Barry, Beale & Co..Boston, MA.1911
An 11" x 9" embossed die-cut mechanical marionette paper toy by Raphael Tuck & Sons. Ltd. An unknown boatman's journal detailing the mileage, expenses, and trips taken on a launch (an open motor boat) named Polaris. The journal has been divided into several sections, with one side of the journal being used as a "Mileage and Cash" ledger, while the back portion is used for "Miscellaneous and Operation of Engine." These titles have been written on the journal's cover so that the reader knows which section they are on. Starting on the "Miscellaneous and Operation of Engine," the journal starts in 1911, when the boat was ordered that March. The owner visited the shop twice before the boat was delivered to him in 1911. Based on anecdotal evidence contained within other entries in the journal and advertisements in local newspapers (not included) that ran around the time of purchase, the boat was most likely constructed at the Atlantic Company in Amesbury, MA. and was a gurnet dory. What follows are various entries of advice from friends or workers at the Atlantic Co. on how to run the boat's engine and records of minor repairs. Additionally there are summaries of  the 1911-1913 seasons chronicling the time in the water, distance traveled, gallons of gas used, and repairs/maintenance.  Next, is a chart that states the distances to various points traveled to in miles. This was most likely complied in an effort to know how much gas might be need for various trips. Lastly, in this portion of the journal  is a section of pages which gives instructions on how to use the engine and perform maintenance on it. Flipping the journal over and starting on the "Milage and Cash" cover, the journal records the date of each trip take, its starting point and/or destination as well as the mileage of each trip. Often times there are notes regarding the people accompanying the owner on the trip, as well as short notes on what the trip was for, such as coon shooting or fishing. At the end of each year the total mileage is tallied up. After several blank pages a ledger for cash expenses incurred, such as an anchor and fire extinguisher. Immediately following this is a list of gasoline expenditures, including the gallons bought and  the cost. At the end of each year the total amount used has been added up, and, for example, in 1911 190 gallons costing a total of $28.10. These various  ledgers in the journal cover 4 seasons, from 1911 to 1914. At one point there are brief notes detailing the expense of storing the boat from 1915-1918, followed by the entry "Sold Polaris and tender, with fithnap and accessories, to Mrs. Anna D. Porter of 280 Lowell St. Peabody, MA, for $600. She is to pay the storage for the current year.' Following several blank pages, there are several extremely detailed records of some of the trips taken between 1911-1914. For example, on a trip from Haverhill to Annisquam (a waterfront neighborhood of the town of Gloucestor), the location of the boat was documented every ten minutes.   At times these trip entries have time stamp records to the exact 1/2 minute. Interspersed throughout the journal are four photographs that have been pasted in. Two photographs are attached to the front and back interior covers and depict the boat, Polaris, itself. There are quotes about motor boats, cut from newspapers pasted behind the photographs. The other two photographs are pasted on interior pages, one is of the lighthouse on White Island, while the other one depicts a buoy. Included are ten loose sheets, mostly lists of items left in the boat, or repairs needing to be done. Lastly there is a trimmed piece of cardboard that depicts an advertisement for the International Typographical Union, that was most likely used as a book mark. Red leather covers. Graph interior pages. Approximately 1/3 filled out. Measures 6" x 3 3/4".

 The Transvaal Campaign, Model Relief Series, #187. Raphael Tuck & Sons.London.1895 Fine Quarto Hand Colored Lithograph Hymen's Temple Reveals Secret Desire - Wedding Proposal 1840s
The Transvaal Campaign, otherwise known as the Second Boer War took place between October 11, 1899 and May 31 1902. The war was fought between the British Empire and two Boer states (descendants of the Dutch-speaking settlers of the eastern Cape frontier in Southern Africa during the 18th century.), the South African Republic (aka Republic of Transvaal) and the Orange Free State, over the British Empire's influence in South Africa. While initial Boer had success, soon they were overrun by British reinforcements. The war continued for years however with the Boers using guerrilla warfare until the British employed a variety of harsh counter-measures destroyed any Boer rebellion. This Model Relief Series (also called Gigantic Reliefs) contains six scenes of this war, #1 Baden-Powell’s Armored Train – Mafeking, #2 Bugler Sherlock Distinguishing Himself, #3 General Buller’s Balloon and Guns in Action near Ladysmith, #4 Boers Decoying British into Ambush, #5 New South Wales Lancers Chasing Boer Patrol, and #6 Field Ambulance at Work on the Veldt.

This item was a part of a larger set called Military Art Novelty Relief Series produced by Raphael Tuck and Sons. This item was compared to the Tuck Database for Ephemera (https://eph.tuckdb.org/), and while all of the large set pieces are in this set, at least three of the small pieces are missing.

Norddeustscher Lloyd (NDL or North German Lloyd) was a German shipping company founded by Hermann Henrich Meier and Eduard Crusemann in 1857. NDL would become one of the foremost shipping companies in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1970 NDL merged with Hamburg America Line (HAPAG) to become Hapog-Lloyd AG which is still in business today. Presented in two albums, the travels of an unaccompanied female on a European tour.  In early 1901 Emma Doughten began her European Tour, traveling mostly by rail, she visited numerous countries, such as Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, England and Scotland. Emma narrates every portion of her trip with exacting, detailed, entries of the sites she sees and the people she meets. From the extolling on the history of each art piece, cathedral, palace, or chateau she visited to her interactions with fellow travelers or the townsfolk she met. Often, she would spend pages writing all she learned while visiting the historic site of the day. Along with her written journal entries, in order to illustrate the numerous sites visited, are pasted-in postcards. From the view of the Louvre from across the Seine in Paris to the various small towns she visited in the high Alps in Switzerland.   Starting her journey in Spain, she visited various locations, such as Ibiza and Gibraltar. Continuing on to Austria she visited Innsbruck and Vienna and saw such sites as the Hofburg Imperial Palace and the Tyrolean State Museum. A short train ride later she spent some time Germany visiting the various sights in Munich and Dresden. Making her way to Switzerland and she traveled on the Axenstrasse Highway, a picturesque road built along steep cliffs on the east side of the Lake Lucerne. The views along this throughway are spectacular as it weaves through the many rock fall galleries and tunnels along its route. From there Emma traveled on the Gotthard Railway, a Swiss trans-alpine railway that runs from northern Switzerland all the way to the country's boarder with Italy. The railroad takes its passengers through the Alps by means of the Gotthard Tunnel, making several stops along the way to the tourist towns that are scattered throughout the Alps. Along the way, Emma also saw the Rhonegletscher (otherwise known as the Rhone Glacier, located in the Swiss Alps and is the source of the Rhône River and one of the primary contributors to Lake Geneva), Le Pont Suspendu (a large suspension bridge which at its inauguration in 1834, it became, for a time, the longest suspension bridge in the world, as well as one of the first to use wireline cables instead of chains. It was destroyed in 1923 to make way for the Zaehringen bridge.), and Matterhorn (a mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy, it's a huge and near-symmetrical pyramidal peak and it is one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe). Eventually making her way into Italy, Emma spent some time along Lake Maggiore; a long, thin, lake on the south side of the Alps that is noted for its picturesque surroundings of greenery-filled mountains, before traveling on to some of the more well-known Italian tourist destinations. Such as Milan, Florence, Sienna, Rome, Assisi, and Pompeii. One lesser known spot Emma visited was Bussana Vecchia, a ghost town in Liguria, Italy, that had been abandoned by its citizens due to an earthquake in 1887. From there she continued onto France, stopping in Paris and visiting all the classic sites: The Louvre, The Vendome Column, Notre Dame, The Arc de Triumph, Place Charles de Gaulle, and Saint-Jacques Tower. Leaving Paris, Emma visited almost too many French Chateaux to be named, though some highlights are the Chateau de Cheverny, the royal Château de Chambord, and the royal Château de Blois. Emma continued on through the coast of Brittany and Normandy visiting such sites as the Carnac stones (an exceptionally dense collection of megalithic sites around the village of Carnac in Brittany), and Mont-Saint-Michel (an island fort that houses several strategic fortifications since ancient times). Using the French port city of Calais, Emma traveled across the English Channel to the cliff top town of Dover. There she started her last leg of her journey, exploring the British Isles. Traveling north through England, she visited London, Canterbury, Oxford, and Salisbury. Additionally, she spent some time at Stonehenge, Shakespeare's birthplace and Land's End (found along the coast of Cornwall, it is the most westerly point of mainland England). From there she moved onto Scotland, where she spent time visiting various lochs and their nearby towns and castles. Such as Dunstaffnage Castle by Loch Etive, Stirling Castle near Stirling City, and Durham Castle in Durham. Additionally, she also spent some time in Edinburgh and Linlithgow. Here the journal rather abruptly ends, with no real conclusion or statement how Emma traveled home. Additionally, on the last 20 or so pages of the journal Emma has left several blank sections were she obviously meant to go back and paste in the postcards of the sites she was describing but never got around to it. However, placed in-between pages of the journal, there are two envelopes full of postcards from England and Scotland, that she most likely meant to use. Additionally, the beginning of her trip is also a bit of a mystery. The first journal's binding is damaged and it looks as though several pages at the beginning are missing. As Emma made a point of recording on the inside cover of both journals where she was when she started them and the date, one is able to confirm that she started in Gibraltar. Overall, these journals provide an amazing insight into the popular 'European Tour' at the very beginning of the 20th century.

The front cover is detached and the back strip is missing. It appears that the first few pages of the journal are missing. Some additional pages are loose or detached. The second journal covers also show moderate cover wear. The back strip is partially detached and the binding is loose by intact, though some individual pages are fully detached from the binding. Both journals are mostly written in pen, though the first few pages of the first journal are written in pencil, and therefore is had to read in places. Additionally, there are some stains in both journals due to the paste and/or tape used to adhere the postcards.
