        Old & Rare Scottish Tartans with Historical Introduction and Descriptive Notices

      Edinburgh: George P. Johnston 1893, 1st edition, 68 of 250 numbered copies.. () viii, 61, 45pp. Very good. Large quarto. Original dark indigo blue cloth boards with gilt lettering on title and spine. Two large intricate gilt decorations on front, one small on spine. Gilt top foredge, others untrimmed. Scottish crests decorative endpapers. Previous owners signature on verso dated 1893; signed by publisher on half-title verso. Dutch, handmade paper. Square sepia image on title, offset onto half-title verso. 45 tartans described, each with a large cloth samples mounted on seperate opposite page. Cloths have offsetted onto description page. A historically significant reference for its subject matter and innovation. Most Scottish references of the time focused on clans with illustrations of tartans, but Stewarts book focused on the tartans themselves. The idea of mounting actual tartans, woven in silk, had never been done before. It provided an exact record of sett patterns. These 45 tartans were specifically chosen for either their rarity or their age. This is a great copy of a brilliant tartan reference..

Stricker / Secy,? 8.5? x 11?, transmitting the letter, on Roosevelt?s personal Metropolitan magazine letterhead, with original 5.5? x 3.5? stamped postmarked envelope. Fine condition.Miss Josephine M. Stricker (1893-1988) was Roosevelt?s private secretary. In ?Talks With T.R. ?" From the Diaries of John J. Leary, Jr.? (Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1920), Leary recalls an event that occurred as 1920 approached: ??Why not?? Colonel Roosevelt asked this question one day when a visitor jokingly remarked that in the event of his returning to the White House, he might have a woman private secretary. The woman in question was Miss Josephine M. Stricker, who became attached to his staff in the Bull Moose days and was his secretary to the end. ?Miss Stricker is a perfectly good secretary,? he went on. ?She is competent, faithful, loyal. If she is to be criticized at all, it is because she tries to do too much herself. Should I by any chance return to the White House, I should be glad to have a secretary of her attainments. Some of the politicians might not like it, it might be somewhat embarrassing to them, and it would be a precedent, but I am sure that if I could stand it, and she could stand the politicians, we are about the only persons who would have to be considered.??"
