        San Gimignano.

      XIX secolo. Puntasecca firmata, titolata e datata in lastra "J. Pennel, San Ghimignano, 1882", cm 21 x 26 (alla lastra) pi? margini bianchi. Bella prova raffigurante una veduta in verticale del paese, con le tre torri e con gran parte della piccola cittadina. In primo piano, un campo con olivi, in lontananza i tipici cipressi del paesaggio toscano. Il tutto ripreso da un punto di vista pi? ribassato che guarda verso l'alto e che conferisce allo scorcio il senso di una veduta in cui si riconosce immediatamente l'inconfondibile San Gimignano. Joseph Pennel (Philadelphia, 1857 - 1926) ? stato un incisore, litografo, illustratore e scrittore americano (molti libri li scrisse in collaborazione con la moglie Elisabetta Robin Pennel), le cui opere risultano caratterizzate dal tratto raffinato, incisivo e deciso. Joseph Pennell fu infatti anche un attento viaggiatore, che mise la sua arte al servizio della natura e fiss? sulla carta, con grande maestria, il frutto delle sue osservazioni. Fra XIX e XX secolo, lungo le citt? e le campagne della Toscana, l'occhio dell'artista si sofferm? spesso su luoghi reconditi e su luoghi pi? noti, ch'egli seppe sempre riprodurre con notevole fedelt? documentaria, riproponendoli attraverso tagli e prospettive particolari, che li hanno resi nuovi ai nostri occhi e li hanno riproposti nella loro bellezza ai tanti viaggiatori stranieri. Un volume, catalogo di una mostra tenutasi a Borgo Sansepolcro, ha permesso una scelta significativa di disegni, acquerelli e pastelli di soggetto toscano conservati nel Gabinetto dei Disegni e delle Stampe della Galleria degli Uffizi, e provenienti da quel nucleo di oltre trecento disegni (realizzati per illustrare un libro di Maurice Hewlett) donati dallo stesso artista all'istituzione fiorentina. ? quindi un autore ottimamente riconosciuto a livello internazionale. Ottimo stato di conservazione. .

        Orig. handwritten and signed manuscript for "Notes on Matters Parliamentary." 4 pp. 4to.

      N.d. Between 1882 (watermark-date in the paper) and 1886 (year of printing). This is an essay concerning parliamentary matters: "Big as the passing days are with hopes of events/ to come, hard as times are now, and/ troublous as the outlook is, there has seldom passed/ a month in which there is so little/ to say about the proceedings of that "representative"/ body called Parliament which according to the views/ of some worthy persons is the only instrument/ by means of which the construction of Society/ can be carried out..." It is especially related to Chamberlin: "There/ is Mr. Chamberlin's circular to the Boards of Guardians,/ which is as complete an exemplification of/ the helplessness of our present ggovernmental system/ as could be..." and to Ireland: "For after all the question England really is/ Shall Ireland separate with civil war or without it/ And for Ireland: "Shall we be allowed to deal with the Land as we think good?" Due to many handwritten corrections, there are many variations from the printed version.. Printed in April 1886 in "The Organ of the Social Democracy." Volume 2, Number 15

        Specimen Days & Collect

      Philadelphia: David McKay. 1882-'83. First. First edition, second issue with the McKay imprint. Some modest erosion to the cloth on the spine, paper over the front hinge starting, else a very good copy. Very nicely Inscribed (but not signed) by Whitman to a fellow author: "To Churchill Williams from his friend the Author with love. December 27, 1883." Francis (or Frank) Churchill Williams was the son of a successful playwright, and an 1891 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (where he was Class President in his Senior year). Aside from publishing two novels (including an interesting portrait of Philadelphia politics, J. Devlin, Boss), he was an active member of the Philadelphia publishing world as a journalist, editor, and publisher. He apparently was well-known to most of the literary figures of the time, and is recorded as a guest at Mark Twain's 70th birthday party. Something of a literary prodigy at Germantown Academy where he attended high school, Whitman's inscription was written to Williams when the latter was 14 years old, a freshman at Germantown, and already winning literary prizes. Presumably Whitman, ensconced across the river in Camden, was warmly acquainted with young Williams, as the affectionate inscription would seem to indicate. Whitman was an active and agreeable signer, but for whatever reason, Specimen Days isn't often found signed by its author, especially with this degree of affection. .

        [Broadsheet]: Larimore! The Greatest Railroad Center of Northern Dakota! The Only Point Having Two Competing Lines of Railroads in Northern Dakota, Except Fargo

      [No place - St. Louis?]: A. Gast & Co.. 1882. First. Broadsheet. 10.75" x 14" (36 x 27.5 cm.). Slightly misfolded, tiny splits, a small and light stain, still about near fine. One side is text in various interesting typefaces to promote the newly founded city, the verso displays a map of Larimore and a caricature of a black schoolmaster pointing to the city, while a half dozen young black boys carry on happily and mischievously. An unusual western promotional broadsheet with blunt black caricatures. The map is displayed as a wall map in a school, the schoolmaster holds a book that reads "Look here, look there, look way over yonder at the rising young city of Larimore." The books that the children are brandishing also contain praise for Larimore. OCLC locates a single copy, at the Denver Public Library; not in LOC American Memory. .
