Original brown publishers cloth with gilt title to upper board and blind ornamental border, light shelfwear, corners rubbed, one with board showing at edge, internally clean with old bookseller's label to front pastedown, very good. 168pp. Hartford, American Publishing Company, Toby/Wi-ne-ma/Nanuokdomah Riddle (1848-1920) was a native American woman of the Modoc Tribe who acted as an interpreter and negotiator for the American army during the Modoc War. She saved the life of Alfred B. Meacham, an event which compelled him to write this biographical sketch of her, that also serves as a history of that war and her tribes people. Alfred B. Meacham (1826-82) served as the Superintendent of Indian Affairs for Oregon between 1869 and 1872, and in this time became acquainted with the Modoc tribe. Originally native to the lands surrounding Tule Lake in California, the American government's relocation programme was pushing the Modoc north into rival Klamath tribe land on the Oregon border. This resulted in a resistant faction of Modoc tribespersons headed by Kintapuash/Captain Jack (cousin of Wi-ne-ma) leaving the reservation they had been forced to migrate to and returning to their ancestral home. The American army's attempts to re-relocate these indigenous protestors resulted in the Madoc War, wherein the rebels sought refuge in the naturally fortified lava beds. In the proceeding attempts to negotiate with Kintapuash's warriors, Meacham assumed the role of Chairman of the Peace Commission, and enlisted Wi-Ne-Ma's assistance as a translator and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lazarus, Emma
No Place [New York?] No Publisher [The Author?](1876). 1st edition. Original paper wrappers. 8vo. 56 pages, 20 cm. Singerman 2567 In English. The title page for this tragedy reads "unpublished manuscript.

She wrote the sonnet The New Colossus in 1883, which includes "lines of world-wide welcome". Its lines famously appear inscribed on a bronze plaque in the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, installed in 1903, a decade and a half after Lazarus's death. The last stanza of the sonnet was set to music by Irving Berlin as the song "Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor" for the 1949 musical Miss Liberty, which was based on the sculpting of the Statue of Liberty (Wikipedia, 2018) . No copy appearing at auction in over 75 years. SUBJECTS: OCLC lists 11 copies worldwide (OCLC: 13387941) . Light edge wear, but very good condition. Rare and important. (AMR-65-9-FLM), Amr7, women3

Eichrodt, Ludwig, Ps. Rudolf Rodt, Schriftsteller (1827-1892).
Lahr, 10. XII. 1876. 2 SS. Gr.-4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten zur Übersendung eines Gedichtes und mit einer längeren Auslassung über das Handwerk des Dichters: "[.] Lyrik kann ein Jurist aufbringen, besser als die Journalisten, die oft wähnen, Ihr Handwerk sei Dichterprofession. Ich glaube aber, es ist noch lähmender als der scharfe Umgang mit dem ganzen kunstsuchenden u. fliehenden Volke. Nur sollte doch Einer, der Schwingen an seinen Achseln fühlt, die besten Jahre der Kraft nicht in Aktenluft u. im Dintenhaus [!] verlieren. Man rechnet auf später, um Größeres zu vollführen; es geht aber nicht, wenn man den Beruf in Ehren halten will. Sehen Sie wohl zu! Reiche haben es darin gut, sie dichten aber nichts - oder selten genug. Eine anständige Stellung im Leben einzunehmen, hält einen wackeren Poesie-Menschen vom zeitraubenden und zweifelhaften Journalismus ab, er geht in den Staatsdienst. Ob er wieder loskommt? Es muß Einer wohl - ich rede nicht von ihnen, der Sie vielleicht glücklichst situirt sind - bei Zeiten einen Roman schreiben oder ein Lustspiel (Letzteres erstrebe ich schon lange) - um sich die Freiheit zu schaffen, dann kann er der Poesie leben. Aber auch das ist vielleicht Täuschung. Die fruchtbaren Schriftsteller schreiben doch am Ende bloß zwei bis drei gute Werke. Ob sie davon leben können? Sie geben darum Fabrikwaare. Nomina sunt odiosa [.]". - Der Sohn des badischen Innenministers Ludwig Friedrich Eichrodt (1789-1844) war im Justizdienst tätig und trat seit 1849 auch als Schriftsteller hervor. Gemeinsam mit Adolf Kußmaul (1822-1902) veröff … [Click Below for Full Description]
