        A rare, complete fair copy of James R. Randall's Civil War anthem, "My Maryland!" Inscribed to Henry Perkins Goddard, Civil War hero and noted journalist

      Baltimore, Maryland, December 14, 1894. 8" x 10.5". "Autograph Quote Signed, ""James R. Randall,"" 5 pages, 8"" x 10.5"", Baltimore, December 14, 1894, a fair copy of his poem, ""My Maryland."" Light toning, some minor losses at margins not affecting text in-filled, expected folds, weak and separated folds expertly repaired on verso, overall very good condition. Randall's poem reads, in full: ""The despot's heel is on thy shore,Maryland!His torch is at thy temple door,Maryland!Avenge the patriotic goreThat flecked the streets of Baltimore,And be the battle queen of yore,Maryland! My Maryland!Hark to an exiled son's appeal,Maryland!My mother State! to thee I kneel,Maryland!For life and death, for woe and weal,Thy peerless chivalry reveal,And gird thy beauteous limbs with steel,Maryland! My Maryland! Thou wilt not cower in the dust,Maryland!Thy beaming sword shall never rust,Maryland!Remember Carroll's sacred trust,Remember Howard's warlike thrust,-And all thy slumberers with the just,Maryland! My Maryland! Come! 'tis the red dawn of the day,Maryland!Come with thy panoplied array,Maryland!With Ringgold's spirit for the fray,With Watson's blood at Monterey,With fearless Lowe and dashing May,Maryland! My Maryland! Dear Mother! burst the tyrant chain,Maryland!Virginia should not call in vain,Maryland!She meets her sisters on the plain-""Sic semper!"" 'tis the proud refrainThat baffles minions back amain,Arise in majesty again,Maryland! My Maryland!Come! for thy shield is bright and strong,Maryland!Come! for thy dalliance does thee wrong,Maryland!Come to thine own anointed throng,Stalking with Liberty along,And chaunt thy dauntless slogan song,Maryland! My Maryland! I see the blush upon thy cheek,Maryland!For thou wast ever bravely meek,Maryland!But lo! there surges forth a shriek,From hill to hill, from creek to creek-Potomac calls to Chesapeake,Maryland! My Maryland! Thou wilt not yield the Vandal toll,Maryland!Thou wilt not crook to his control,Maryland!Better the fire upon thee roll,Better the shot, the blade, the bowl,Thou crucifixion of the soul,Maryland! My Maryland! I hear the distant thunder-hum,Maryland!The Old Line bugle, fife, and drum,Maryland!She is not dead, nor deaf, nor dumb-Huzza! she spurns the Northern scum!She breathes! she burns! she'll come! she'll come!Maryland! My Maryland! Originally Composed in April 1861, at the Fausse Riviére, Parish of Pointe Coupeé, La, and copied, Dec'r 14, 1894, in Baltimore, Md. for my friend Capt. H. P. Goddard."" After hearing of the death of a friend involved in a skirmish with Union troops marching through Baltimore on April 19, 1861, Baltimore-born Randall, teaching in Louisiana, was so aroused that he wrote the poem, ""Maryland! My Maryland!"" at night by candlelight. It first appeared in the April 26, 1861, issue of the New Orleans Sunday Delta and was eventually set to the music of ""Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum."" The song became very popular throughout the Confederacy. In 1939, ""Maryland! My Maryland!"" was adopted as the Maryland state song. The recipient, Henry Perkins Goddard (1842-1916) was a distinguished Civil War officer and journalist. As a twenty year-old journalist from Norwich, Connecticut, Goddard joined the Union Army in March 1862. Goddard served with the 14th Connecticut serving at Antietam, Fredericksburg (where he saved the life of his colonel), and Chancellorsville, where he was seriously wounded and forced to take leave from his regiment. Following the war, Goddard resumed his work as a journalist, writing extensively on the trials and vicissitudes of southern Reconstruction. In a column published in the Springfield Republican in 1907 shortly following Randall's death, Goddard mentioned owning the present copy of ""My Maryland!"" Goddard recalled that Randall, who worked as the literary editor of the Baltimore American with him for some time, ""always felt that circumstances prevented his developing his poetic genius and was somewhat sore about it, hence did not make many friends while in Baltimore, although he had some very strong ones, notable our present United States senator, ex-Gov. William P. Whyte, who is just now endeavoring to have published a collection of Randall's poems."" Goddard then continues, noting the origin of the poem's transition to an anthem: ""As to his famous war song, I have felt it owed much to the success of that famous Baltimore belle, 'Hetty Carey' (the late Mrs. Martin) in finding such suitable music for the words."" (quoted in Calvin Goddard Zon, ed., The Good Fight That Didn't End, 2008, pp. 281-282) Although fair copies of Randall's anthem appear on the market with some regularity, copies which include all nine stanzas are seldom encountered, only two others have sold at auction in the last 40 years. The Neufield Copy sold at auction 20 years ago for about $5,750. "

        Harriet Beecher Stowe boldly pens a quote from her book, "Uncle Tom's Cabin"

      Hartford, Connecticut, April 13, 1894. 4.5" X 6.75". "Autograph Quotation Signed, ""Harriet Beecher Stowe"", from the all-important classic book, ""Uncle Tom's Cabin"", boldly penned and quite large for Mrs. Stowe. One page, 4.5"" X 6.75"", affixed along left margin to a larger sheet, 5.25"" X 7.25"", displaying a facsimile engraved image of Stowe on verso. The original face of the mailing envelope, 4.5"" X 3.5, penned by Stowe is postmarked April 13, 1894, from Hartford, Connecticut. In full: ""Not one throb of anguish, not one tear of the oppressed is forgotten by the Man of Sorrows the Lord of Glory. In His patient generous bosom He bears the anguish of a world. / Uncle Tom's Cabin / Chap 12 / Harriet Beecher Stowe / April 13 1894"". One horizontal mailing fold and light soiling. Overall, near fine condition. The context in which this appears in the book involves the river boat trip on which the slave trader Haley conducted Tom and other Kentucky slaves southward to be sold as plantation hands. At Louisville, Haley surreptitiously sold the baby of the newly traded slave woman, Lucy, when she briefly left in hopes of finding her husband at the wharf. Crushed, she committed suicide by jumping into the Ohio River that night. Tom was a witness to this. The passage immediately follows Lucy's suicide and Mrs. Stowe obviously intended it as a powerful intermediate statement. The acceptance of ""Uncle Tom's Cabin"" at face value by people in the North was a major factor in the development of the Civil War."

        Autograph draft of a concert program for a recital of Wolf's songs at the Saal Bösendorfer in Vienna pn April 3, 1894

      . 1 page. Large quarto. No place or date, but April 3, 1894. Written in black ink. Headed "Hugo Wolf Liederabend" followed by: "unter gefälliger Mitwirkung der Frl. Frieda Zerny Opernsängerin aus Mainz des Herren Ferd. Jäger, Opernsänger u[nd] des Herren Hugo Faisst Conzertsänger. Klavierbegleitung: der Componist" (Recital of lieder with the friendly participation of Fräulein Frieda Zerny, opera singer from Mainz; Herr Ferdinand Jäger, opera singer; and Herr Hugo Faisst, concert singer. Piano accompaniment by the composer). Seven sets of 3 to 5 songs (28 songs in total), all by Wolf, sets numbered "7," "2-6," and "1." Set "7" originally was set "1"; the final set "1" was added last. Each set to be performed by one singer each. Poets credited except in set 6; singers credited in sets 7, 2, 3, and 4 only. With a number of autograph corrections in black ink and corrections in a different hand in pencil. Slightly browned and stained; creased at folds with very minor splits.. The document was on display at the 1960 Wolf centennial exhibition in Vienna and Graz. See Hugo Wolf: Persönlichkeit und Werk: Eine Ausstellung zum 100. Geburtstag. Catalogue by Franz Grasberger (Vienna: Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, 1960), p. 64 (item X/5); it was then in the possession of Hilde Wittgenstein, wife of the pianist Paul Wittgenstein. A printed version of the same program, with some changes, at Österreichische Nationalbibliothek; another printed version including sung texts at Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde, Vienna. HWW 114|1. Featured singers included Frieda Zerny (1864-1917), soprano; Ferdinand Jäger (1839- 1902), tenor; and Hugo Faisst (1862-1914), baritone, a practicing lawyer from Stuttgart. "On 3rd April Frl. Zerny, Faisst, Jäger and Wolf gave a concert in the Bösendorfersaal. This was actually the first concert wholly devoted to Wolf's songs to be given in Vienna. According to the composer himself, its success was a downright sensational one... Frl. Zerny's temperament found perfect opportunities for expression in such songs as Die Zigeunerin; Erstes Liebeslied eines Mädchens; Geh', Geliebter, geh' jetzt! and Das Köhlerweib ist trunken... Nearly half of the songs on the programme had to be repeated..." Frank Walker, Hugo Wolf, 2nd edition (London: Dent, 1968), p. 356. Das Köhlerweib ist trunken does not appear on the present draft of the program.

        Tales of Mean Streets

      London, Methuen. 1894, 1894. First Edition, Second Issue. 8vo. 301pp + 32pp ads dated Jan. 1895. Publisher's olive green cloth titled in gilt to spine and front boards. Bumped to spine ends and with trifling wear and very slight sunning to spine. A fine bright, clean copy. Edges untrimmed, very light sporadic spotting. Published a couple of years before as 'A Child of The Jago' this book is part of Morrison's 'slums of London' cycle that ends with 'The Hole In The Wall' in 1902. With his gritty depictions of the moral and social compromises necessary for survival in such dreadful places, and his unwillingness to take a critical stance regarding his characters and their predicament, Morrison stands out as far superior to the standard crop of God-bothering 'urban reform through fiction' mongers that the late Victorian age spewed forth in their dozens. A lovely copy of a scarce and admirable book. Eric Quayle; Detective Fiction. Parrott A-3.

        A Woman of No Importance

      London: John Lane, at the sign of the Bodley Head, 1894. First edition. Near Fine. One of 500 copies of the first edition. Book Near Fine with the spine faded, otherwise a very nice copy. After the first four leaves, the book is entirely unopened at the top-edge. Bookplate of Joseph Groves and short inscription from film and television actor Vincent Price. Price portrayed Oscar Wilde in a one-man stage production of "Diversions and Delights," which ran from 1977 to 1980 in a variety of venues around the world. An excellent copy with an interesting association. Like many of his other plays, the work was first performed on the stage in April of 1893, before being published in book form. While not his most famous play, it deals with many of his favorite social issues and is not lacking in wit and dark humor. The run of plays was cut short as a result of Wilde's arrest and prosecution for homosexual behavior. The scandal cooled all enthusiasm for Wilde's work until after his death in 1900, when interest in his work began to revive. Near Fine.
