        Signed archive of rare United States Government circulars, enclosures, and supplements

      1888 - These documents are dated from 1884 to 1892. Several are signed in type by Robert Todd Lincoln, American Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Department of State. 13.25 x 8.25-inch slim folio-sized volume, bound with marble boards and leather, 20 pages, with the addition of an important typed letter signed by Benjamin F. Butler, investigating a mass inheritance fraud perpetrated on the citizens of America by con artists in the United Kingdom. During this period, American citizens would be notified that they were heirs to a large unclaimed English Estate or perhaps a large sum of money held in the Bank of England. To receive their inheritance, they were told that certain legal fees and real estate transfer taxes would have to be paid to agents of the British Government. Another variation of the scheme involved American con artists placing advertisements in newspapers calling themselves "European claim agencies" and charging Americans exorbitant fees for investigating the ownership of non-existing estates. Lincoln is flustered because the American Legation in London is receiving hundreds of letters from American citizens who were swindled, and yet little was being done in the United States to educate its citizens to the magnitude of the fraud. Mr. Lincoln to Mr. Blaine [extract], March 3, 1891, ".since March 4, 1889, one hundred and ninety (190) letters have been received at this Legation alleging the writers claims to large estates in England or to fantastic sums of money 'in chancery' or 'in the Bank of England,' none of them containing an element of probability." In conclusion is a typed letter signed by former Union General Benjamin F. Butler, 1 page on law office letterhead, Boston, November 14, 1888, whereby he brings to light the vast magnitude of the con, in part: ".I have now been more than 45 years in the practice of a legal profession, more or less extensively. I have heard of more than 4500--I hope I do not exaggerate--cases of large estates in England awaiting American heirs, and I have been consulted in a very great many, and early in life looked into such matters; but I have not for the last 25 years at all because I never have heard of one dollar coming from England to any American heir on account of such estates. In the first place it is a legal impossibility unless the heirs are British subjects.all those I have ever known about are swindles." Leather binding worn at the spine with light fading to the marble boards. All interior documents are in good to very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        ORIGINAL BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPH BY HORACE BRISTOL

      . First Edition. Photograph. Fine. An original black and white photograph, signed by Bristol on the mat "Horace Bristol &#39;4" Image measures 7 x 8.75 inches, overall approx 17.25 x 21.25 inches matted and framed under glass, wood frame painted black (with a few rubs and nicks). A stunning image, close-up head shot, of a serious O&#39;Neill (1888-1953), who was an Irish American playwright and Nobel laureate in Literature, and one of the first to introduce into American drama techniques of realism earlier associated with Russian playwright Anton Chekhov, Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, and Swedish playwright August Strindberg. His best known plays include: Anna Christie (Pulitzer Prize 1922), Desire Under the Elms (1924), Strange Interlude (Pulitzer Prize 1928), Mourning Becomes Electra (1931), and his only well-known comedy Ah Wilderness. In 1936 he received the Nobel Prize for Literature. Horace Bristol, 1909-1997, was a giant of photo-journalism, a man whose images of Depression-era despair in the United States, wartime heroism in the Pacific and postwar poverty and hope in rural Korea have been ranked with the great pictures of the century

        Signed autograph manuscript poem

      n.p., [December 9,1888]. Very Good. An uncommon item from Walter Crane, one of the most important and prolific artists from the Golden Age of book illustration. This is a handwritten copy of Crane's poem "Rondeau: Seedtime," which appeared in Renascence: A Book of Verse, published in 1891 and which he also illustrated. Crane (1845-1915) was an influential illustrator and also a major figure in the Arts & Crafts movement. He was a great admirer of Edward Burne-Jones, and was influenced by William Morris and his Socialist movement. In a contemporary review, Renascence was described as "this little volume does both the author and publisher credit for the tasteful style in which it is produced." However the critic went on to say that Crane's art was far superior to his abilities as a poet. "Rondeau: Seedtime" was one of a series of rondeaux included in the verse collection. It is a sonnet: "The field is wide - broadcast the seed/of human hope for [later and] human need/As to and fro, from end to end/the furrows of the world ye went/its legioned hungry mouths to feed..." Signed and dated by Crane.On folded sheet with rust stain at top left margin and some foxing. Several light pencil emendations by an unknown hand, but very good. 4.5 x 7 inches. AUTO/102014.

        The Coming of the Great Queen,

      London: Harrison and Sons,, 1888. a Narrative of the Acquisition of Burma. Octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to the spine and the to the front board together with an on-laid white cloth elephant's with gilt details, and illustration of a British soldier in solar topee greeting a Burmese with a parasol, black surface-paper endpapers. Folding steel-engraved frontispiece, 12 collotype plates, 3 folding coloured maps. A little rubbed and spotted on the boards, spine somewhat sunned, but the gilt bright, pale toning, but a very good copy. First edition. Attractive and authoritative contemporary account, the Army and Navy Gazette considered that the "chapters on "The Commerce of Burma" on "Dacoity", and on "The Native Races of Indo-China" are of great and permanent value", while the Saturday Review thought that the story of the Third Anglo-Burma War "by river and land, of the taking of the City and the surrender of the King is well told". Browne served with the Royal Scots Fusiliers in the Zulu war of 1879, in the Boer War of 1881 as Assistant Director of Transport with the Natal Field Force, and with the "Burmese Expedition 1885-86 in command of a Mounted Corps composed of Mounted Infantry, Civilian Volunteers, and Burmans, equipped and organised by him (mentioned in despatches, Medal and clasp)" (Hart's Army List). A very nice copy of an elusive title.

        [Broadside]: Downing. This is an exact representation of the Downing Grape, and is made from a photograph

      Merchantville, N.J.: Joel Horner & Son, Grape Vines, Small Fruits, Etc.. [no date - circa 1888]. First. Broadside. 13" x 14". Light old folds, a few dark stains, a very good example. Advertisement with a large woodcut of two lush bunches of grapes. A very uncommon, and concievably unique broadside: we had a shop in Merchantville for over a decade and there are very few 19th Century Merchantville imprints. We've seen only one other, a town history published in 1899, and OCLC perhaps locates another three. The town was incorporated in 1874. Horner is mentioned most often in documents of the 1880s (Vice President of the County Board of Agriculture in 1887; in correspondence with the State Board of Agriculture about grapes in 1889). .

        Captain John Welbe's Proposals for establishing a company by the name of the London Adventurers for carrying on a Trade to (and settling Colonies in) Terra Australis, and working and Improving the Gold and Silver mines which there abound

      London: [E.A. Petherick], 1888. Printed sheet measuring 251 x 154 mm, a little toning but very good. London adventurers in Terra Australis. Late nineteenth-century printing of an impossibly rare broadside promoting colonisation of "Terra Australias" by a private English company.Historically situated between Dampier and Cook, the broadside was originally published by Captain John Welbe circa 1720. It promotes his scheme to float a private company with the express purpose of taking and mining the land along 'the coast of West Peru to the East Indies...upwards of 2,500 leagues'.The broadside makes note of Welbe's association with Dampier on his voyage of 1703-1706; experience that gave him unprecedented geographical knowledge and confidence to assert that these lands 'abound with Mines of Gold and Silver, and belong to no European state'. So confident is Welbe that he boldly asserts the Crown stands to reap some 50 million pounds from the venture (a mere half of what he claims the Spanish have taken from Peru). Nonetheless, Welbe's ambitions bore no fruit, and a footnote to this printing states 'Among the Sloan MSS (British Museum) is an earlier proposal by Capt. Welbe to the British Government for a full discovery of Terra Australis. But none of his proposals or his petitions appear to have had any result. His long waiting, however, brought him distress and a debtors' prison.'This re-printing of the original is now scarce in -itself; it was published in 1888 by Edward Petherick, bibliophile and agent for George Robertson in London. Petherick laid the foundations for a bibliography of Australia, and 'by 1894 he had immensely influenced the content of reading on Australia'. His decision to reprint and distribute material related to the early discovery of Australia raised awareness of the era prior to the discovery of the east coast by James Cook.

      - Virch. Arch. path. Anat., 114. - Berlin, Verlag von Georg Reimer, 1888, 8°, 562 pp., 14 lith. Taf., Halbleinenband. First Print! - Wilhelm Roux's work "Beiträge zur Entwickelungsmechanik des Embryo. Ueber die künstliche Hervorbringung halber Embryonen durch Zerstörung einer der beiden ersten Furchungskugeln, sowie über die Nachentwickelung (Postgeneration) der fehlenden Körperhälfte" on the production of half-embryos initiated a turning point by shifting emphasis from descriptive to experimental embryology. Wilhelm Roux believed that the above work showed that the nucleus of each blastomere is capable of directing a specific independent line of differentiation. He eventually concluded that the nucleus is made of hereditary particles. - Wilhelm Roux (1850-1924) is regarded as the founder of developmental mechanics, 'Entwicklungsmechanik' as he named it. - Garrison & Morton No. 505 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
