        [Block of Lottery Tickets]: The Purchaser or holder of this Card is a member of The Women's Economical Garden Homestead League

      [Boston]: Aurora H.C. Phelps. 1871. Block of four printed lottery tickets. Overall measurement approximately 5.25" x 2.5". Tiny nicks at the corners, else very near fine. A fascinating artifact of a suffragette's attempt to further the lot of women. Aurora Phelps was a womens' rights activist who attended Oberlin College and served in the Civil War "as a hospital nurse of much value and efficiency" (Parker Pillsbury, "How the Working Women Live," The Revolution, 13 May 1869). In 1864 she founded the Women's Garden Homestead League, which advocated public grants of land for women near Boston, where they could farm and build homes. While women were eligible to claim land under the Homestead Act, in practice few women had the resources necessary to move to the West and had to look for land in the East.When the war ended Phelps moved to Boston, where she joined a group of reformers who viewed labor rights as the next major moral issue facing the nation after the abolition of slavery. Struggling to support herself through a series of "laborious" jobs, Phelps found fertile soil for her campaign for Garden Homesteads. She allied with Jennie Collins, a vest maker turned labor activist, and Elizabeth La Pierre Daniels, a sewing machine operator and advocate of the eight-hour day, to establish the Boston Working Women's League, which became an important voice for the city's impoverished working women, many of whom had lost fathers, husbands, or prospects for marriage due to the Civil War.In the spring of 1869, the Boston Working Women's League circulated Phelps's petition for Garden Homesteads, which asked the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to purchase "a tract of good cultivated land," near Boston to be divided into lots ranging from one to five acres, "with good (but the cheapest possible) houses" to be constructed on each lot. In addition, Phelps asked the state to "furnish rations, tools, seeds and instruction in gardening, until such time as the women would be able to raise their own food, or otherwise become self-supporting" ("The Wail of the Women," Workingman's Advocate, 24 April 1869, p.1).Boston working women rallied around Phelps's petition for Garden Homesteads because it envisioned a future in which women could subsist as individuals and as family supporters, free from the crippling assumptions of female dependence within the family that shaped women's secondary role in the labor market and their compromised position within the polity. Phelps gained support from the broader labor movement by appearing at labor conventions and by writing a series of articles for the American Workman, arguing that women had "a righteous claim" on the government for relief as workers, mothers, and citizens ("The Work-woman," American Workman, 26 June 1869).Phelps and the Working Women's League created enough pressure in favor of Garden Homesteads that the Massachusetts Legislative Committee on the Hours of Labor granted them a hearing on 22 April 1869. Phelps testified to women's limited options for earning a living: those who entered domestic service were cut off from their own families, underfed, and "treated as strangers and aliens," adding that she knew, having "tried it herself." Women found it almost impossible to become skilled workers, and in any event "skilled labor fares no better than acquaintance with a single part, so long as compensation is concerned." She urged the legislature to grant the women land near Boston were they could farm and establish homes ("The Working Women in Council," American Workman, May 1869).The legislature did not grant the women's request for land. However, in 1871, the state incorporated the "Women's Economical Garden Homestead League," enabling it to hold property with a value of up to $5,000. As manager of the League, Phelps raised money from about one thousand male and female supporters to purchase a 60-acre (24-hectare) tract of wooded land in Woburn, a few miles north of Boston. Thus began the construction of a utopian community known as "Aurora." Property ownership and governance in Aurora were limited to women, an inversion of gender norms shocking to many male journalists, who reported disparagingly on the community. The New York Times compared Phelps to an Amazon and warned men to stay out of Aurora lest they be pressed into service "as household drudges" deprived of political rights ("Aurora," The New York Times, 28 Oct. 1873).Recognizing the need to diversify the economy of Aurora, Phelps planned to establish a cooperative commercial laundry. She invited Boston labor reformers as well as nearby residents to the dedication of the "Bethesda Laundry" in the fall of 1873. The ceremony included songs, poems, speeches, and "much rejoicing" ("Aurora", The New York Times, 28 Oct. 1873). In the spring, Phelps presided over a large gathering at Tremont Temple in Boston celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Women's Garden Homestead League.Despite this optimistic beginning, construction on the laundry stalled and the community never became economically viable. Ultimately, neither Phelps nor the women who joined her in Aurora could overcome working women's lack of access to capital or credit. Phelps's health declined as she began suffering from Bright's disease. She died at the Bethesda Laundry.Phelps's significance lies in her attempt to redress the economic, social, and political forces that relegated most women without male support to poverty in the 19th Century. Speaking from her own experience as a laboring woman, she urged social recognition for women's roles as family supporters, seeing economic self-sufficiency as essential to women's quest for equality.It is likely that these lottery tickets were an important part of Phelps initiative to found her Utopian community, Aurora. While the tickets convey membership, they are also individually numbered and advertise that the holder is eligible to win one of "1386 Prizes!" Lotteries were a traditional method of raising funds for both public and private purposes, including the United States Lottery, which helped to finance the Revolutionary War. .

        AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND

      1871. [Magic and mystery..."] London: Strahan & Co., 1871. 13 pp undated ads. Original green cloth decorated in black and gilt, all page edges gilt. First Edition of George MacDonald's timeless fairy tale about the young boy Diamond who flies off on the back of his friend the North Wind. Though not mentioned on the title page, there are 76 beautiful wood-engraved illustrations by Arthur Hughes. Serialized in "Good Words for the Young" between November 1868 and October 1870, this was MacDonald's first "long" fairy story to be published in book form; DEALINGS WITH THE FAIRIES (1867) had been a collection of five short tales. About AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND Macdonald's son Greville later wrote,~Of all my father's works, this remains the "best seller." Its secret here again lies in its two-world consciousness... All the strength of its teaching is allusive -- an appeal to the imaginative seeing of a truth rather than a claim for its passive acceptance on the score of authority... Magic and mystery, nonsense and fun -- in no egregious fashions of the day, but in enduring forms of beauty -- did more for us than the moral precept or standardized education.~Sadleir lists three bindings for the first edition of AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND, all with the same pictorial design (though in several colors, without priority). This copy is from the first binding state, with Strahan's anchor device at the foot of the spine and with the "double rustic border" (one black and one gilt) on the front cover; Sadleir further associates dark-brown endpapers with the first binding state, but this copy, like the most-recent other (purple) copy we have had, has the "pinkish-buff" endpapers (still with the binder Burn's ticket).~The condition of this copy is near-fine: externally there is just a little wear at the extremities (such as the rear lower fore-corner); internally the delicate original endpapers are cracked (but re-glued), but the contents are tight and free of foxing.~For a book intended to be handled by children almost a century and a half ago, this is very collectible condition. Sadleir 1474/1474a; Carter (MBV) pp 22-23 (Carter lists only the first Strahan binding and the Daldy Isbister one); Shaberman 43.

      [Boston]: Aurora H.C. Phelps. 1871. Block of four printed lottery tickets. Overall measurement approximately 5.25" x 2.5". Tiny nicks at the corners, else very near fine. A fascinating artifact of a suffragette's attempt to further the lot of women. Aurora Phelps was a womens' rights activist who attended Oberlin College and served in the Civil War "as a hospital nurse of much value and efficiency" (Parker Pillsbury, "How the Working Women Live," The Revolution, 13 May 1869). In 1864 she founded the Women's Garden Homestead League, which advocated public grants of land for women near Boston, where they could farm and build homes. While women were eligible to claim land under the Homestead Act, in practice few women had the resources necessary to move to the West and had to look for land in the East.When the war ended Phelps moved to Boston, where she joined a group of reformers who viewed labor rights as the next major moral issue facing the nation after the abolition of slavery. Struggling to support herself through a series of "laborious" jobs, Phelps found fertile soil for her campaign for Garden Homesteads. She allied with Jennie Collins, a vest maker turned labor activist, and Elizabeth La Pierre Daniels, a sewing machine operator and advocate of the eight-hour day, to establish the Boston Working Women's League, which became an important voice for the city's impoverished working women, many of whom had lost fathers, husbands, or prospects for marriage due to the Civil War.In the spring of 1869, the Boston Working Women's League circulated Phelps's petition for Garden Homesteads, which asked the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to purchase "a tract of good cultivated land," near Boston to be divided into lots ranging from one to five acres, "with good (but the cheapest possible) houses" to be constructed on each lot. In addition, Phelps asked the state to "furnish rations, tools, seeds and instruction in gardening, until such time as the women would be able to raise their own food, or otherwise become self-supporting" ("The Wail of the Women," Workingman's Advocate, 24 April 1869, p.1).Boston working women rallied around Phelps's petition for Garden Homesteads because it envisioned a future in which women could subsist as individuals and as family supporters, free from the crippling assumptions of female dependence within the family that shaped women's secondary role in the labor market and their compromised position within the polity. Phelps gained support from the broader labor movement by appearing at labor conventions and by writing a series of articles for the American Workman, arguing that women had "a righteous claim" on the government for relief as workers, mothers, and citizens ("The Work-woman," American Workman, 26 June 1869).Phelps and the Working Women's League created enough pressure in favor of Garden Homesteads that the Massachusetts Legislative Committee on the Hours of Labor granted them a hearing on 22 April 1869. Phelps testified to women's limited options for earning a living: those who entered domestic service were cut off from their own families, underfed, and "treated as strangers and aliens," adding that she knew, having "tried it herself." Women found it almost impossible to become skilled workers, and in any event "skilled labor fares no better than acquaintance with a single part, so long as compensation is concerned." She urged the legislature to grant the women land near Boston were they could farm and establish homes ("The Working Women in Council," American Workman, May 1869).The legislature did not grant the women's request for land. However, in 1871, the state incorporated the "Women's Economical Garden Homestead League," enabling it to hold property with a value of up to $5,000. As manager of the League, Phelps raised money from about one thousand male and female supporters to purchase a 60-acre (24-hectare) tract of wooded land in Woburn, a few miles north of Boston. Thus began the construction of a utopian community known as "Aurora." Property ownership and governance in Aurora were limited to women, an inversion of gender norms shocking to many male journalists, who reported disparagingly on the community. The New York Times compared Phelps to an Amazon and warned men to stay out of Aurora lest they be pressed into service "as household drudges" deprived of political rights ("Aurora," The New York Times, 28 Oct. 1873).Recognizing the need to diversify the economy of Aurora, Phelps planned to establish a cooperative commercial laundry. She invited Boston labor reformers as well as nearby residents to the dedication of the "Bethesda Laundry" in the fall of 1873. The ceremony included songs, poems, speeches, and "much rejoicing" ("Aurora", The New York Times, 28 Oct. 1873). In the spring, Phelps presided over a large gathering at Tremont Temple in Boston celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Women's Garden Homestead League.Despite this optimistic beginning, construction on the laundry stalled and the community never became economically viable. Ultimately, neither Phelps nor the women who joined her in Aurora could overcome working women's lack of access to capital or credit. Phelps's health declined as she began suffering from Bright's disease. She died at the Bethesda Laundry.Phelps's significance lies in her attempt to redress the economic, social, and political forces that relegated most women without male support to poverty in the 19th Century. Speaking from her own experience as a laboring woman, she urged social recognition for women's roles as family supporters, seeing economic self-sufficiency as essential to women's quest for equality.It is likely that these lottery tickets were an important part of Phelps initiative to found her Utopian community, Aurora. While the tickets convey membership, they are also individually numbered and advertise that the holder is eligible to win one of "1386 Prizes!" Lotteries were a traditional method of raising funds for both public and private purposes, including the United States Lottery, which helped to finance the Revolutionary War. .

        Autograph Letter Signed, in Danish, two and a half 8vo pages, Copenhagen, January 15, 1870, with signed holograph envelope

      To twenty year old Frederic Carl Klixbull, assistant to his father, station master, Søncke Sørensen Klixbull. The letter is incorrectly dated according to "The diaries, vol. IX, p. 10 (1871) Monday the 16 January: "Sendt brev og Manuscript til Poeten ved Marslet Station ved Odense" (...sent letter and manuscript to the poet at Marslet Station, Odense...) Andersen writes: "Dear Sir! In the end of November last year I received your first letter with the enclosed poems. At that time I was very busy and I could not comply with your wish to read them. Later at Christmas I read your poems and wanted to write back to you-then I could not find the letter with your name and address! However, I hoped that you would stop by for a visit when you were in Copenhagen or write me a new letter. Yesterday I received another letter from you and now I can return your manuscript of which I had preferred to talk to you about instead of writing. From the few poems you sent me it is impossible to say something about your talent. The 16 lyric poems don't stand clear and strong to me. To me they seem very inspired from Ingemann's [Bernhard Severin Ingemann (1789 -1862), Danish novelist and poet] earliest period. I am afraid that I can't encourage you - however I don't' want to disappoint you. I don't know your age, and your situation. I want to tell you like I have told more that one young talented poet: "Do not write if you do not feel an urge to do so. Consider the nature around you and look into yourself, and it will create great joy to your life. However, please do not let my remark discourage you. My opinion is and always will be of one man only." Signed, "Yours truly, H. C. Andersen." Repairs to horizontal margin folds. Handsomely bound in a burgundy leather and velour binding. The letter is bound opened to reveal both sides with the signed envelope placed on empty space on the lower portion of the final page. The signed envelope is addressed, "For Mr. F. C. Klixbull, Marslev Station, Odense (Denmark),' and signed, "H. C. Andersen.". Andersen holograph letters are occasionally available, but letters discussing motivation to write in such a clear and articulate manner are rare.

        Programme de la Comédie française, imprimé sur soie et galonné d'argent. Représentation de Gala à Londres, le 29 mai 1871, en l'honneur du Prince de Galles - au lendemain de la Semaine Sanglante de la Commune de Paris ] Comédie Française (de Paris). 1871.

Léopold Laluyé. Mlle de Belle-Isle. Comédie en Cinq Actes, en Prose, de M. Alexandre Dumas

      1871 - 1 programme sur soie format 35,5 x 17 cm, intégralement orné de galons à frange en fil d'argent (de 2,5 cm de large), s.d. [ mai 1871 ] Exceptionnel souvenir du passage de la Comédie Française à Londres, du 2 Avril au 9 Juillet 1871. Le guide essentiel à l'analyse de cette impression sur soie est le "Journal inédit de E. Got". La guerre, le siège de Paris puis les événements de la Commune ayant fortement compromis la situation financière de la Comédie Française, le sociétaire Edmond Got proposa de "tenter de gagner à l'étranger l'argent qui était nécessaire aux dépenses". En compagnie d'une petit troupe dans laquelle on compte Coquelin (Aîné) ou Prosper Bressant, il organise une tournée londonienne de 3 mois. A la date du 28 mai, suite à un séjour éclair à Paris en pleine "Semaine Sanglante" de la Commune, Edmond Got écrit : "le prince de Galles (l'héritier présomptif), et sa femme assisteront demain à la représentation de Mademoiselle de Belle-Isle, et je suis chargé de les recevoir officiellement, comme directeur". Sur la même page, une note précise que le 29 mai, seront jouées " Au Printemps" et "Mademoiselle de Belle-Isle". L'examen attentif du Journal de Got révèle que ces deux pièces ne furent jouées ensemble qu'à cette seule date lors de la tournée (par ailleurs, "Au Printemps" y sera représentée 4 fois, "Mlle de Belle-Isle" 8 fois). Il n'est fait mention sur le programme ni du Prince de Galles, ni d'une date précise, mais tous les indices signalés coïncident pour permettre de conclure sans risque d'erreur qu'il fut imprimé pour la Représentation de Gala donnée le 29 Mai 1871 en l'honneur du Prince de Galles (futur Edouard VII). L'impression sur soie des programmes artistiques est une pratique connue au XIXe siècle, pour marquer les grandes occasions (dernières de grands artistes, premières, soirées de gala.). Les galons à frange en fil d'argent sont évidemment un rappel des galons ornant le bas du rideau de scène. Ce bel exemplaire est un émouvant témoignage historique, de la tournée londonienne de la Comédie Française en 1871 et de la visite dont l'honora le futur Edouard VII. Et la date même de cette représentation, donnée au lendemain de la Semaine Sanglante de la Commune de Paris n'est pas le détail le moins marquant. Langue: Français [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Red Star Line / New York - Antwerp (circa 1899)

      New York: Sackett & Wilhelms Litho & Ptg. Co. Vintage Poster, in a large format, by Henri Cassiers. "The Red Star Line", an American-Belgian shipping company founded in Philadelphia, 1871, had become the third largest transatlantic passenger carrier by 1906. Cassiers worked for the company over 25 years, designing their advertising posters, postcards & menus. His distinguished theme of brightly dressed peasants is clean and precise; the colours are flat and bright. This poster has never been folded and has had several edge tears professionally repaired.(see photos) The largest repaired tear extended about 4.5 inches into the center left border,is difficult to see in the photos. Small chips & creases remain around the border outside of the framing area and there are several amateur tape repairs along one edge on the back. Overall, an excellent example of early 20th century lithography and 'shipping art' by this noteable Belgian artist. It must be said that the paper used with this poster is now, somewhat fragile. Every caution will be taken to ship this delicate item securely. Gentle handling and proper archival framing is recommended. Other photos available if required. Inquiries welcome..

It was Darwin's second book on evolutionary theory, following his 1859 work, On the Origin of Species, in which he explored the concept of natural selection. In The Descent of Man, Darwin applies evolutionary theory to human evolution, and details his theory of sexual selection, a form of biological adaptation distinct from, yet interconnected with, natural selection. The book discusses many related issues, including evolutionary psychology, evolutionary ethics, differences between human races, differences between sexes, the dominant role of women in choosing mating partners, and the relevance of the evolutionary theory to society.In the introduction to Descent, Darwin lays out the purpose of his text:"The sole object of this work is to consider, firstly, whether man, like every other species, is descended from some pre-existing form; secondly, the manner of his development; and thirdly, the value of the differences between the so-called races of man."Darwin's approach to arguing for the evolution of human beings is to outline how similar human beings are to other animals. He begins by using anatomical similarities, focusing on body structure, embryology, and "rudimentary organs" that presumably were useful in one of man's "pre-existing" forms. He then moves on to argue for the similarity of mental characteristicsBACKGROUND: Charles Robert Darwin, FRS (12 February 1809 ?" 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist and geologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary theory. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.CONDITION:Conditions are Good+/Very Good.  Some wear to edges/boards, bumped upper corners, little color added to top/bottom of spine/gold dulled; some blemishing to half titles, signature W.L.

        Carte-de-visite Photograph Album

      Down, Kent 1871 - An intimate photographic memento of Charles Darwin and his family. This extremely rare Darwin family photograph album contains photographs of Charles Darwin (1809-1882) and his wife Emma Darwin (1808-1896); their son George Howard Darwin (1845-1912), with another showing George holding his nephew Bernard Darwin; their daughter Elizabeth Darwin (1847-1926) and another of Elizabeth; their son Horace Darwin (1850-1953); their daughter Henrietta Emma ‘Etty’ Litchfield (1843-1927), with another two of Henrietta; Henrietta’s husband Richard Buckley Litchfield (1832-1903), with another of Richard; Charles and Emma’s first grandson Bernard Darwin (1876-1961) with two other photographs of the infant; and other photographs of as-yet unidentified sitters. The portrait of Charles Darwin was made by Oscar Rejlander, “Darwin’s Photographer.” When Darwin decided to use photographs to illustrate his planned book on The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals, he had found it difficult to obtain images with the desired facial expressions. After extensive searching, he eventually turned to the Swedish photographer Oscar Rejlander, whom he met in 1871. This seated portrait was one of several Rejlander made in 1871 or 1872. Darwin declared these “The best photographs of me” (Darwin Correspondence Project). Rejlander became “Darwin’s principal adviser on photographic issues [and] presented Darwin with at least sixty-four pictures of expression, more than any other photographer” (Prodger, Darwin’s Camera). Three of the portraits in this album are by Rejlander. Henrietta Darwin lived and worked with her father at Down House until her marriage at age twenty-eight to Richard Buckley Litchfield on 31 August 1871. This album contains portraits of Henrietta and Richard signed and dated on their wedding day, an indication of the sentimental importance of this album. “She was a valued editor to her father as well as companion and correspondent to both of her parents. Henrietta played a significant role in the continuing memorialization of both of her parents: she edited passages of The Autobiography of Charles Darwin (1887). Although Henrietta was not afforded the formal schooling provided to her brothers, her keen editorial eye was sought after by her father for his scientific writing, particularly his 1871 work, The Descent of Man. In this Henrietta provided far more than grammatical assistance; Darwin asked her to help clarify and enliven his work.” “Though far less recognized by Victorian society for her intellectual worth than her father or brothers, Henrietta was an essential lynchpin in the Darwin circle, and helped anchor both the scientific and domestic activities of her family” (Darwin Correspondence Project). Charles Darwin thanked Henrietta for her role in preparing the second printing of The Descent of Man (1871), writing in part, “Several reviewers speak of the lucid vigorous style etc.— Now I know how much I owe to you in this respect, which includes arrangement, not to mention still more important aids in the reasoning” (20 March 1871). After her father’s death, she assisted with the editing of his Autobiography and Life of Erasmus Darwin, and she edited her mother Emma’s Letters. Henrietta’s husband, R.B.
