About this Item: 1st.ed., 1938. Vii + 225 pp., frontis, + 7 other photo-plates. Blue cloth; gilt. 21 x 16cm. Remains of paper label to e.p, o/w V.G. Interesting inscription from a relation of both Admiral Stephenson and Admiral Sir Henry Keppel, Oxford, 1943. Henry Frederick Stephenson (1842-1919) was born at Broadstairs - one of fifteen children ! He first went to sea in the Royal Navy with his uncle, Henry Keppel, (afterwards Admiral-of-the-Fleet Sir Henry Keppel), on board HMS JEAN d’ACRE in 1853. He fought in China towards the end of that decade and also in the Egyptian campaign of the early 1880’s. He enjoyed a long and distinguished naval career and he became a close friend of two kings, Edward VII and George V, being largely responsible for the naval training George V received. This book contains a selection of their correspondence, chiefly during the Victorian era, containing much of naval interest. The presentation inscription at the front of the book is written by Isabel Keppel Barrett to her daughter Valerie from Oxford on January 19th, 1943 : "Admiral Sir Harry Stephenson" she writes, "was your grandmother’s first cousin, & they were sweethearts in their young days. He is buried very near granny’s grave at Westminster Cemetery. Daddy & I went to the Admiralty soon after we were married to see ‘dear old Uncle Harry Keppel’, he was very charming." CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN ADMIRAL STEPHENSON AND TWO KINGS, 1876-1919. INTERESTING ASSOCIATION COPY. Seller Inventory # C127B207

About this Item: Paris, 1900. Condition: Very good condition. Lithograph by the French caricaturist 'SEM', Georges Goursat (1863-1934), who was recognized for his caricatures of socialites of the French Belle Epoque and of the people who served their fashion needs. He was active in the early years of the 20th century.The caricature depicts a bowler hat being produced through 'alchemy' by the famous Paris hat maker Gelot, located at the place Vendome. Gelot was the preferred hat maker of King Edward VII; his coat of arms is at the top of the image. The hat maker raises a domed cover or cloche to reveal a freshly produced black bowler hat, as steam billows in the background. One has the impression the hat was fashioned or cooked up through some instant proprietary process, and all the hat maker had to do was raise the lid to reveal his latest creation. The cloche was perfected by the French as a way of protecting tender plants. Lithograph with stenciled color, signed in the plate. Approximately 13 x 19 3/4". Seller Inventory # 20752
