        Theodore Roosevelt writes a short note to the Secretary of the Interior after uncovering corruption on western Indian reservations

      n.p. Autograph Note Signed, "T. Roosevelt," one page, 3.25" x 1.75" card, no place, [January 1893] to Secretary of the Interior, John Willock Noble(1831 - 1912). Roosevelt, then a member of the United States Civil Service Commission writes a short note to the Interior Secretary: "Sorry to miss you: I had a most pleasant and interesting tour round the Indian reservations." Fine condition. Roosevelt had made a well-publicized inspection tour of western Indian reservations where he uncovered rampant corruption. In October 1892, Roosevelt released a report accusing federal employees on the reservations of blackmail and political corruption and referred the case to the Justice Department [Blackmailing in Politics, New York Times, 10/14/1892]. We're unsure if Roosevelt was being teasingly sarcastic toward Noble as the Department of the Interior did oversee the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Molti di questi personaggi, nei magnifici disegni che Allers coglieva e fissava nella migliore espressione riportano le parole che accompagnano la figura stessa ".io la vidi a Piedigrotta tutta gioia e tutta festa.". I disegni, dalle prime scene napoletane, vanno fino ai templi di Paestum, Ravello, Amalfi, i Cappuccini, la spiaggia, la cattedrale. Segue o' Carusiello sulla costa, Maiori. Altre belle scene di incontri pittorici: Sorrento, Massalubrense, una strada dei Camaldoli. Cose e personaggi di Capo Miseno. Scene tipiche: i tram a cavallo, le capre che salivano le scale per la mungitura. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        SAM'S PICTURE BOOK 1893 [HANDPAINTED CLOTH PICTURE BOOK]

      1893 - [UNNAMED ARTIST] SAM'S PICTURE BOOK 1893 [HANDPAINTED CLOTH PICTURE BOOK]. 4to. Handsewn cloth-covered boards, with handpainted covers, and twelve cloth pages with two full-page paintings sewn back-to-back to make each leaf. Blue polka dot and pink floral cloth wallpaper serves as endpapers. The pages have some thumbing, and a few pencil marks, but the images are fresh and the colors bright. The front cover is slightly faded where the text begins; a much-loved book. Most of the paintings give the impression of having been skillfully copied from family photographs. The first page is captioned "Ma, Sam, and little Jaky" - Jaky being a black and white terrier of some sort, and Sam being a little boy of about a year. Seven of the paintings feature family dogs: pointers, Boston terriers, bulldogs. One painting is a seaside lawn baseball game in Mattapoisett (Massachusetts). Another is a waterside group of five boys with their toy sailboats, captioned "The Cannonville Yacht Club." Other images: "Granpa's Cows;" "Johnny, Nell, Peggy, Chops, and Judy" (sleeping dogs); "Sam and Johnny" (the toddling Sam with a Boston terrier); "Helga" (the pony? drawing a cart with two girls, another girl leading the pony); "Lex" (a pointer lying on the grass); "Johnny;" "Gran, Ma, Peggy, Jake, and Terry," the latter three being dogs; "Pa and Unlce Louis Bathing at Mattapoisett" (both men in bathing costumes, Pa holding a dog under each arm); and "Ma in California" (Ma patting the ear of a saddled mule). The overall impression is of the sweetest days of a bygone era, a happy family of the upper class at play. The family and artist are not identified.

        WIDOWERS' HOUSES. Inscribed.

      Henry & Co,, London 1893 - George Bernard Shaw. WIDOWERS' HOUSES. Inscribed. London: Henry & Co, 1893. 8vo., 126pp. + 2pp. ads. Gilt-stamped publisher's original cloth, now a faded plum. A significant presentation copy inscribed in black fountain pen on the half-title: "To Robert Loraine / from G. Bernard Shaw. / 9th Nov. 1907". Loraine [1876-1935] was a man of action: actor-manager, soldier, aviator, Fabian & of course, a close friend to Shaw - perhaps best known as an actor he's seen most commonly on holiday with the Shaw’s & Harley Granville-Barker or at Fabian events. Loraine & Shaw shared political affiliations & a passion for theatre: it was Loraine who premiered as the lead in Man & Superman on Broadway, the production was massively successful & launched Shaw as a force to be reckoned with in the United States. A significant association copy of this very scarce first edition with only 500 printed & as few as 150 sold, many fewer signed thus. Widowers' Houses was the first of George Bernard Shaw's plays to be staged. It is one of the three plays Shaw published as Plays Unpleasant in 1898. It was deemed "unpleasant" because its purpose is not to entertain its audience as the traditional Victorian theatre was expected to do but to raise awareness of social problems & to censure the exploitation of the poor by the unproductive upper class.

        ORIGINAL watercolor of Barbadoe's Park, Kilmarnock, Scotland, signed "G. Ross 1893"

      Kilmarnock, 1893 - A very early work by Ross, then age 20, done in Scotland before his removal to the United States. Gordon Ross (1873-1946) was a prolific artist, working mostly in watercolor, from his early days in his native Scotland. As a book artist he tackled everything from Dickens to Shakespeare, including a number of titles for The Limited Editions Club. He is also noted for his sporting work, which included illustrations for The Derrydale Press, Surtees's Jorrocks Jaunts and Jolities, and several large prints of notable sportsmen, including Sir Thomas Lipton, Hugo Meynell, Peter Beckford, and Surtees himself. The eminent collector A. Edward Newton, who wrote the introduction to the Surtees edition, praised Ross in his book End Papers: "No one now living in Great Britain and doing work in his line can compare with Gordon Ross, now living in New York.He has no living superior; I doubt if he has his equal for the very quality needed to illustrate a humorous classic." A superb draftsman, with a gift for portraiture, Ross's work has an ingratiating quality of lively elegance; his originals very seldom come on the market 21 x 14-1/2 inches. On verso is written in Ross's hand the title and "painted by Gordon Ross, St. Andrew's House, Kilmarnock." Also pasted on the verso is a page from the book Rambles Through Kilmarnock, reprinting a poem that evidently inspired Ross's work: "A wild, weird look has the 'Lady's Walk', / And the trees are stripped and old.". Unframed, on board; some wear and minor repair to corners or margins, overall very good

Freeman (1862–1943) was colonial service surgeon serving in the Gold Coast colony. This pamphlet relates an expedition into west Africa undertaken in 1888, describing the geography, wildlife, vegetation, and local communities. In 1891, after serving in Africa for four years, Freeman contracted black water fever and was invalided home. His persistent ill-health precluded running a medical practice, so he worked as a writer, becoming well-known for his detective novels.
