        Death Valley in '49. An important chapter in California pioneer history … with foreword by John Steven McGroarty

      New York, Santa Barbara: Wallace Hebberd, 1894. Reprint. Illustrated by Alson Clark. [xiv], [524] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Green cloth. Near Fine. Bookplate of Edward Borein, reproducing one of his drawings. Reprint. Illustrated by Alson Clark. [xiv], [524] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Inscribed to Western Artist John Edward Borein. Ffep inscribed: "To Ed Borein / Who is leaving a true picture of the West for future posterity by his skill in producing etchings of actual happenings. / Dwight Murphy." Murphy was a noted rancher and breeder of palomino horses. He owned 7,000 acres of Snata Barbara's Rancho San Marcos. John Edward Borein (1872-1945), son of a California deputy sheriff, was sketching Western subjects at the age of five. Encouraged by his family to become an artist, he matriculated at a San Francisco art school, but left after a month to work as a cowboy. In this pursuit he became highly proficient, although, encouraged by his awed fellow cowhands, he continued to draw and sketch in his spare time and, in 1896, began to see his work in print. He eventually developed an enviable competence as a watercolorist, but gave up painting in oils when he compared his work--unfavorably--with that of his friend Charles M. Russell. In 1906 Borein moved to New York to work as an illustrator, and studied etching--which would become a speciality--at the Art Students' League. It was this which set him apart from his peers in Western art, and nearly 400 of his etchings are recorded. Seeped in the history and allurements of the West, he returned to California permanently in 1919, and it is to his native state that much of his work relates. By the 1930s his watercolors, produced with sparkling, vivid colors and conveying a flavor of authenticity without pretension, were enormously popular; they number over 1,000 examples. He is known as an artist "who got the details right" and his readily identifiable personal style sets him apart from others who depict the landscapes, the inhabitants, the history, and the sun-drenched aridity of the American West.

      Cubery & Co n.d., ca. 1894, San Francisco - Flyer for the People's Party, a populist agrarian political party founded in 1891 which merged with the Democratic Party in 1896. Mrs. Carrie F. Young appears to have begun her political career in the early 1880s as a member and lecturer of the Oakland Health and Temperance Club and superintendent of the Scientific Temperance Instruction in the Public Schools of Alameda County. First mention of Young lecturing for the People's Party appears to date around 1894, when she delivered an address on white slavery at a Populist ratification meeting in June, 1894 (see the San Francisco Call, June 24, 1894). Uncommon broadside: OCLC locates one copy as of September, 2016, at Berkeley, giving the date as 1892.

        Palestine and Syria.

      Leipsic Karl Baedeker 1894 - Second edition. cxx, 444pp, 17 maps, 44 plans and a panorama of Jerusalem, publisher's red cloth gilt, slightly worn in parts ( 2 tiny holes on upper cover) ; a very good copy. In this edition the views have been eliminated except for the attractive folding panorama of Jerusalem. This is the famous edition which gave rise to a lawsuit brought by Howard ( a hotel owner in Jaffa and Jerusalem) against Baedeker with reference to some disparaging remarks in this volume about his hotels. Howard won the lawsuit and Baedeker was ordered to remove the critical comments. However in the next edition Howard's hotels were omitted and his business suffered greatly as a result. Issued c.1894 Hinrichsen E254. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

With the bookplate of Gertrude Chandler Tucker, whose father, Harrison Chandler, founded Chandler and Price, a major manufacturer of printing presses. In all, a nearly fine set with the intricately painted original designs nicely preserved.
