      Fort Smith, Ar., 1894. Horizontal folds, light spotting and ink offsetting. Very good. A very interesting partially-printed folio broadside concerning the Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma. A rather elegant "work permit" issued to one of the horde of American citizens who flocked to Oklahoma following the opening of the territory to white settlement in 1889. The epic Oklahoma Land Rush and its aftermath settled the future state but also unsettled a good many Native Americans. The need to protect Native Americans against exploitation by would-be "hired hands" or tenant farmers is self-evident. Thomas Gosset sought employment from Thomas G. Overstreet, who at this point, it would seem, could easily take care of himself. By now a prosperous rancher-farmer, Overstreet was a white man from Missouri who married Margaret Victor, of Choctaw ancestry, and came with his new bride to Indian territory in 1871. By marriage Overstreet became a citizen of the Choctaw Nation with the right to own land, which he exercised to the fullest. Overstreet acquired 3000 acres of rich Arkansas River bottomland at the foot of Short Mountain in what is todayLe Flore County, Oklahoma. Skullyville was absorbed into Le Flore County prior to Oklahoma statehood. In 1890, he began work on an elegant 15-room residence which was occupied by his descendants until the 1970s and is today the landmark Overstreet-Kerr Historical Farm. Overstreet contributed to the advancement of regional agriculture and for a time served as president of the first national bank of Warner, Indian Territory. His descendants continued to play a prominent role in the life of the community. Skullyville, Oklahoma lies fifteen miles west of Fort Smith, Arkansas. It was settled by the Choctaws in 1832 when they were removed from their homelands. Given that the Choctaw were amongst the first Native American tribes to arrive in the territory, Skullyville was one of the first organized communities in Oklahoma, and served as the first capital of the Choctaw Nation. Today, Skullyville is a ghost town, with only the cemetery remaining. J.H. Mayers, the printer who occasionally worked for the Choctaw Nation, was successor to W.H. Mayers, publisher of the THIRTY-FIFTH PARALLEL, a Fort Smith newspaper published between 1859 and 1861. A rare Native American broadside from Indian Territory, printed over a decade before Oklahoma statehood was granted. No copies in OCLC.

      [Atlanta, 1894. A couple short edge tears and tiny chips. Very good. An important campaign document illustrating the threat to enfranchised African Americans posed by the rise of populism and third-party politics in the South. In 1892 and again in 1894, the Populist Party, a new political force in the South made up of farmers impoverished by debt and falling cotton prices and led by the charismatic Senator from Georgia, Tom Watson. The Populist Party reached out not only to poor whites but also to African Americans, a rare but all too evanescent moment when it seemed that class solidarity might trump race. The hitherto dominant Georgia Democratic Party reacted in contradictory ways, in this instance by appealing to black voters to support the Democratic Party with ample statistics showing that "in 1893...the negro received more than three times as much money [in school funds] as he pays into the Public Treasurer." Luring black voters away from the Populists was not enough. The Democrats also had to stem the defections of white voters who were flocking to the Populist banner. To accomplish this, they condemned the Negro as reflexively as they courted him. Such an oft-repeated ploy had disastrous long-term consequences, as did the countenancing of Klan violence by the Democratic Party. Ironically, it was a progressive movement, promising to put social justice before race, that led to the disenfranchisement of African Americans in the South, and to the triumph of Jim Crow. A failed party by the turn of the century, the Populists joined ranks with the Democratic Party, which embraced some of its progressive reforms but also helped disenfranchise black voters. Rare, with only two copies in OCLC, at the University of Delaware and the Clements Library.

        An Island Garden

      London: Osgood, McIlvane, 1894. First English edition. gilt-decorated white cloth, top edges gilt. Spine and foredges slightly browned, very minor foxing of rear spine channel, otherwise fine. Octavo. [i-ii], [i-x], (1) - 126 Illustrated with pictures and illuminations in colour by Childe Hassam. Title page in green pink and yellow One of fifty-five copies. A notable rarity Celia Thaxter?s lyrical classic of her delightful garden on Appledore, one of the Isles of Shoals off the coast of New England. From the decorative vellum-like binding to the moiré style endpapers to the generous typography to the illustrations and the inserted full page chromolithographic plates protected by printed tissue guards, this is probably as charming a production as any book in the collection. ?One of the most elaborate pieces of bookmaking of the period? (BAL). This copy, printed by the Riverside Press, is one of those fifty-five copies that were bound with English imprint on May 4, 1894. The binding was designed by Sarah Wyman Whitman and is one of the most elaborate pieces of bookmaking of the period. The cost of the expensively made book probably contributed to the first edition?s small print run of barely 1,000 copies. Basically a poet, Thaxter died shortly after the publication of this, her only book on gardening. With: a copy of 1988 facsimile edition by Houghton Mifflin, boxed as issued[BAL 19923. DAB. NAW].

        The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle Book

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1894-1895 Two volumes. First editions, first printings. The Jungle Book (1894) is illustrated by John Lockwood Kipling, William Henry Drake, and Paul Frenzeny. The Second Jungle Book (1895) is illustrated by John Lockwood Kipling. Both volumes bound in the publisher's navy cloth, spines lettered in gilt, pictorial jungle images based on artwork by the author's father John Lockwood Kipling stamped to the front boards in gilt, all edges gilt, gray coated endpapers. Very good or better, with slight leans and some faint toning to the spines, bright gilt, faint soiling to the otherwise fresh boards, spines cracked and holding before the half-titles, spines lightly starting inside the rear covers, otherwise sturdy bindings, Jungle Book with some faint tidemarks and an erased former owner's inscription to a front flyleaf, Second Jungle Book with some spotting to the font flyleaves, both with some light and scattered spotting to the otherwise fresh pages. Overall, a bright and handsome set. The Jungle Books are collections of short stories and verses, the most famous of which relate to the feral child protagonist Mowgli, a "man cub." While they can be read independently of each other, each chapter serves as a fable using animal figures to provide a moral lesson. In each volume, the short stories are both preceded and followed by poems or songs, including the notable "Mowgli's Song" and "The Law of the Jungle." The Jungle Books, based on the author's childhood and later work experience in British India, are indicative of Western Orientalist ideology at the turn of the 20th century, which is somewhat softened by Kipling's fondness for his former home. Both Jungle Books are illustrated by the author's father, John Lockwood Kipling, who was a practicing illustrator and art professor in Bombay.. Illus. by Kipling, John Lockwood. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

      (1894-1914), (Johannesburg & London) 1894 - Twenty-one annual and monthly reports, a circular to shareholders, and articles of association, for several different gold mining companies operating in South Africa at the turn of the century. The group, probably all belonging to Christopher R. Corning, have been hole punched at the left margin, and bound together with cord. Corning's signature appears at the heads of some of the reports, as does a stamp of one of the associations he belonged to, the American Institute of Mining Engineers. The reports included in this group are: 1. THE NEW PRIMROSE GOLD MINING CO., LIMITED. Annual Report ending 30th June, 1895.

[30]pp. Contemporary full dark brown calf, gilt lettering on front cover, black string-tie at gutter margin. Printed with "Compliments of Warren Chemical & Manufacturing Co." on front pastedown, printed contents page. Moderate rubbing on the boards, a little foxing on the card mounts, very good or better.The album contains 29 glossy Woodburytype photos tipped onto thick printed cardstock leaves, each leaf with linen hinge, with printed text above and below the image. Most images ranging from 6.5" x 4.5" to 9" x 2.5". All images still very bright and crisp. Photographs of buildings covered with Warren's Anchor Brand natural asphalt roofing advertising their roofing on buildings, factories, and homes in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama, and Canada.A scarce and fascinating photographic catalogue promoting the Anchor Brand Asphalt Roofing from Warren Chemical. Warren Chemical was founded by Herbert M. Warren and his five brothers, who were the pioneers in developing the coal tar industry in the United States. In 1847, Samuel and Cyrus Warren discovered that coal tar, a waste product of the gas lighting industry, made an ideal adhesive for producing asphalt built-up roofs. Initially the gas companies paid them to haul the waste away, which established an invaluable resource to build up a thriving business. Herbert Warren, and his brother, E. Burgess Warren founded a branch of the family business in Philadelphia in 1852 which focused on roofing and paving, as well as drawing upon the extensive oil fields in Pennsylvania for raw materials.This catalogue advertises many customers, owners of notable Gilded Age edifices, the Warren Chemical Co. had roofed. These include the Freight Houses of the West Shore Railroad Co. in Weehawken, New Jersey; The American Encaustic Tile Company in Zanesville, Ohio; the newly completed Allegheny County Court House and Jail in Pittsburgh designed by H.H. Richardson; the Thomson-Houston Electric Co. Factory in Lynn, Massachusetts built in 1888; the Victorian Romanesque Revival Union Depot in Detroit, Michigan with its massive four-clock tower; the Harmony Mills factory building in Cohoes, New York, which when it was finished in 1872 was the largest individual cotton factory in the world; Moerlein Brewing Co. Building, Cincinnati, Ohio which was completed in 1885; as well as the massive Henry G. Marquand Mansion completed in 1884, built by Richard Morris Hunt.The Warren Company also roofed the Born Brewery in Columbus, Ohio, Cheney Brothers Silk Mills in Connecticut, The Pullman Building in Chicago, Louisville Tobacco Warehouse in Louisville, Kentucky, the Eastman-Kodak Factory in Rochester, The New York Tribune building, The Union League Club House and the United Bank Building, both in New York City, the Brooklyn Eagle Building, and many others.

      - Auf der Rückseite eines privaten ORIGINAL- FOTOS, das etwas unscharf Heidegger mit weißer Kappe u. Trachtenjacke zeigt. - An Edda Martin, die Frau und Mitarbeiterin seines ehemaligen Schülers, Professor Gottfried Martin. Heidegger dankt für Glückwünsche und Buchgeschenk zu seinem 64. Geburtstag (am 26. Sept.) und empfiehlt die Arbeit eines Schülers für die von Martin herausgegebenen Kant-Studien: "Frbg. [Freiburg] 4. Okt. 53. // Liebe Frau Martin! / Ihre Glückwünsche und das Geschenk haben mich sehr erfreut. Zwar besitze ich die Briefe schon (von Herrn Obermüller geschenkt, welches Exemplar ich meinem Bruder [Fritz H.] bringe, der daran das gleiche Interesse hat). Meine Frau und ich haben schöne Wochen der Arbeit und Erholung auf der Hütte verbracht. / Sagen Sie bitte Ihrem Mann, daß im Sommer ein sehr begabter Grieche, der vor einigen Semestern 1 ½ Jahre bei mir im Seminar war, mit einer sehr guten Arbeit bei Funk promoviert hat, eine Arbeit die ich für die Beihefte der neu erstehenden Kantstudien für sehr geeignet halte. Falls die Einreichung möglich sein sollte, bitte ich um kurze Nachricht nach Meßkirch (Kreis Stockach) wo ich in der nächsten Zeit arbeite. / Mit frischen [? nur dieses Wort ist ein wenig verwischt] Grüßen von uns für Sie beide / Ihr Ma Heidegger" - // - Fritz Heidegger (1894-1980) galt seinerzeit als der beste Kenner der Schriften seines fünf Jahre älteren Bruders. - "Meine Frau": Elfride Heidegger, geb. Petri (1893-1992). - Die "Hütte" ist die berühmte, 1922 erbaute Hütte in Todtnauberg (Südschwarzwald). - Der Baden-Württembergische Landkreis Stockach wurde 1973 aufgelöst. Meßkirch, die Heimatstadt Heideggers liegt heute im Landkreis Sigmaringen. - // - Gottfried Martin (1901-1972) studierte zunächst Chemie, Physik und Mathematik und erst später Philosophie. Nach zwischenzeitlicher Arbeit in der Industrie promovierte er 1934 bei Heidegger in Freiburg mit dem Thema "Arithmetik und Kombinatorik bei Kant". Seine Habilitationsschrift über Wilhelm von Ockham wurde u. a. von dem Kölner Philosophieprofessor Artur Schneider, welcher wiederum 1913 in Freiburg Heideggers Doktorvater gewesen war, positiv beurteilt. Gottfried Martin lehrte ab 1943 an den Universitäten Jena und Köln. Zur Zeit unserer Karte (1953 bis 1958) war er Professor an der Universität Mainz und gab ebenfalls ab 1953 gab er die Kant-Studien heraus, die er mit Paul Menzer wieder begründet hatte. 1969 wurde er Erster Vorsitzender der Kant-Gesellschaft.

      [Denver, 1894. Original black cloth. Slight fraying and wear at extremities, inner front hinge cracked. Neat book label and ownership signature on endsheets. Else very good. In a cloth slipcase, leather label. One of the most famous books on the cattle industry, growing out of the Johnson County War in Wyoming in 1892, which pitted the large, established members of the Wyoming Stockgrowers Association against the smaller cattlemen and squatters on the range. In the course of the bloody conflict Mercer, editor of the NORTHWESTERN LIVESTOCK GROWER, published in Cheyenne, took the side of the small growers and produced this vitriolic work. The book is said to have been suppressed, and may have been to a certain extent, but a fair number of copies exist today, although it certainly remains rare. The book is often listed as being printed in Cheyenne, but Mercer's children maintain that it was printed in Denver, where Adams agrees it was bound. Its importance is great, chronicling one of the last major upheavals of frontier violence in the wars for the open range against fencing. It has since appeared in many later editions.
