        The White Wampum - Tekahionwake

      London: London John Lane, 1895. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. E.H.N.. Large 12mo - 7 ¾" x 5". Publisher's decorated brown cloth covered boards with tomahawk stamped in black decoration and the name Tekahion-wake + gold letters on spine (bright). The Condition is very good+, small nicks on corners of cover Ragged edged paper. Illustrated title page, viii, 88 pp. text, 16 pp. publisher's 1895 catalogue of the Bodley Head (List of Books in Belles Lettres), deckled edges, hand cut paper. This is a wonderful book of poems by Mohawk Native American poet/author E. Pauline Johnson, Tekahionwake. This is the first edition of this authors first book. An important book, generally regarded as the first work ever published by a Native American woman. Most of the 36 poems in this volume deal with her Native American heritage. Uncommon E. [Emily] Pauline Johnson was born on the Six Nations Indian Reserve near Brantford, Ontario, in 1862. She received little formal education, but had a natural aptitude for literature and began to write poetry at an early age. In her poetry she expressed, as no one had done before, the intensity and passion, the hopes and feelings - and much, too, of the tragedy - of her people. She died in Vancouver in 1913 and was laid to rest among the ferns and wild flowers in Stanley Park, a short distance from Siwash RockBiographer Charlotte Gray says: "Why does Pauline Johnson, Tekahionwake, the nineteenth century daughter of a Mohawk chief and an English gentlewoman continue to haunt our collective imagination? When the beautiful poetess Pauline Johnson swept onto the stage in her buckskin 'Indian' outfit and bear claw necklace or one of her elegant silk evening gowns, she mesmerized audiences from coast to coast. At at time when women rarely travelled, she crossed the country nineteen times and the Atlantic three times, equally at home in the salons of the rich and powerful and in the whistle-stop towns that dotted a growing country. Ironically, after gruelling years on the road and little income, Pauline finally realized her dream of becoming a bestselling author as she faced death. She left us with an enduring mystery: who was the young man in the locket she always wore and who sent beautiful flowers and a loving note to her funeral. In (her book), Charlotte Gray explores the many dimensions of Pauline Johnson's life. Complex and talented, she was a native rights advocate ahead of her time; a lyric poet who performed vaudevillian skits; a New Woman who wrote for 'The Mother's Magazine'; and an incurable romantic who never married.

        Rare Typed Letter Signed with medical content

      Washington, D.C., 1895. unbound. 1 page on "War Department, Surgeon General's Office" letterhead, 10 x 8 inches, Washington, D.C., June 8, 1895. Written to Captain Frank A. Edwards, 1st Cavalry, a distinguished Army officer and veteran of the western Indian campaigns, diagnosing him with a form of gout but ruling out diabetes, in part: "...I have made a careful chemical and microscopical examination of the three samples of urine furnished by you. Briefly I may say that there is a large quantity of urate of soda and oxalate of lime in all of the samples...I do not find the least trace of sugar, and no albumen. I also had the chemist of the Museum to examine for sugar with a like result. I believe that the course of treatment recommended by Dr. Tyson of Philadelphia will be of great value to you, and would suggest in addition that you take considerable daily exercise..." Interestingly, Dr. Reed was incorrect in his recommendation and course of treatment for gout. His friend Dr. James Tyson, perhaps best known in the medical community for his pioneering use of the microscope, prescribed the drinking of lots of fluids as a remedy. This was concurred by Dr. Reed, who, in addition, prescribed "considerable daily exercise." It would take another three years before the German scientist and Nobel Prize recipient Dr. Emil Fischer proved that uric acid came from purines in foods and drinks and that gout could be treated through the strict alteration of diet. Dr. Walter Reed died at the age of 55, thus accounting for the fact that there are no signed letters on the autograph market today. Natural folds; very good(+) condition. United States Major General and physician who in 1901 led the team that postulated and confirmed the theory that yellow fever is transmitted by a particular mosquito species.

        Under the Equator near Malacca Straits

      1895.. Watercolour on thick paper, signed "Arnold 1885" near the lower left corner, "Under the Equator near Malacca Straits" pencilled along lower edge. Some minor damage with loss to the paper two corners not affecting the image, a little occasional spotting, sections of mounting tape on reverse, but overall very good. Watercolour painting depicting a typical Malay house beside a river near the Malacca Strait, a narrow stretch of water between the Malay peninsula and the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The scene shows a traditional house built from local materials such as the nipah palm for the walls and attap roof. The houses were typically built on stilts - this not only protected the building from flooding and animals and provided storage space but also, along with the design of the roof and the full-length openable window spaces - increased the overall ventilation and kept the interior cool. Shade from nearby palms and other trees was also important in reducing the build-up of heat in the kampung. A family is shown squatting near a flat-bottomed boat on the edge of the river near a boat, indicating that their likely main source of income was from fishing. Besides the palm trees, casuarina trees very common in coastal Malaysia appear on the river bank. .

        Washdirt, Panning out the Gold

      Queensland, 1895. Watercolour 560 x 980 mm. signed and dated lower left: 'E Bevan /1895' inscribed on verso: 'Washdirt' / 'Panning out the Gold'; in the original handsome nineteenth-century frame. A fine watercolour of an Australian prospector. A large and pleasing watercolour by Edward Bevan of an iconic Australian subject: the prospector panning for gold. Not a great deal is known about Bevan: he was born in Bath, England in 1854 and he is recorded as an exhibitor at the Royal Art Society, Sydney from 1883. In New South Wales he painted with Julian Ashton and Tom Roberts before leaving for Queensland in 1885 to work as a surveyor.Bevan was an editor of the Illustrated Australian News and a printmaker. This talented but elusive artist died in Galston, New South Wales in 1898. Few examples of his paintings survive although there is a watercolour in the collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.Possibly painted in Queensland whilst Bevan was there, this finely executed painting is not inscribed with a specific Australian location. The gold rushes in Queensland were smaller than those of Victoria and New South Wales, most of them in the later part of the nineteenth century. In 1872 gold was discovered southwest of Cooktown on the Palmer River by William Hann and around this time Chinese settlers began to arrive on the Queensland goldfields.An impressive atmospheric watercolour in remarkably fine condition, in the original handsome gilded frame.

At at time when women rarely travelled, she crossed the country nineteen times and the Atlantic three times, equally at home in the salons of the rich and powerful and in the whistle-stop towns that dotted a growing country. Ironically, after gruelling years on the road and little income, Pauline finally realized her dream of becoming a bestselling author as she faced death. She left us with an enduring mystery: who was the young man in the locket she always wore and who sent beautiful flowers and a loving note to her funeral. In (her book), Charlotte Gray explores the many dimensions of Pauline Johnson's life. Complex and talented, she was a native rights advocate ahead of her time; a lyric poet who performed vaudevillian skits; a New Woman who wrote for 'The Mother's Magazine'; and an incurable romantic who never married.

        Cot and Cradle Stories

      William Briggs, Toronto 1895 - UNCOMMON BOOK AND RARE IN THIS NEAR FINE CONDITION.small 8vo, [1],[10],[11]-239p., [1 ad], Illustrated by b/w Port Front ( Mrs Traill is pictured on the first page at age 94) & b/w Illus & Line. Gilt embossed original dark maroon cloth, gilt decoration on front cover. Spine ends and corners gently rubbed, text quite crisp and very tight, near fine. This is quoted from 'Editor's Note', her grandniece, Mary Agnes Fitzgibbons at the front of this book; "The following paragraph from a letter dated Nov. 1st, 1895, in which she replies to my wish to include a story I had not found among the MS. sent me, is so characteristic, I make no apology for quoting it: "Among my rough copy I found some portions of 'The English Sparrows: their treatment in the United States, and flight to Canada.' I could have done something with the fragments had I not been taken ill. It was the very article that had been so marred by the mice; handfuls of the MS., the very best of it, lay in chips in the drawer. Those hungry varmints had devoured the most telling portions of the tale, made beds of the most touching incidents in the last hours of paterfamilias, after his loyal exhortations to his numerous family to follow his example, fight the Yankee birds, and die gloriously under the ancient and honorable British flag, the Union Jack." Of note from a production viewpoint, "the stamp of the two squirrels on this book is considered one of the best Canadian examples of elaborate decorated and illustrated design bindings of the last quarter of the nineteenth century and later." (Biblio Society 1996, Decorated cloth in America: publishers' bindings 1849-1910) "Cot and Cradle Stories" was her last book with her passing away four years late on August 27, 1899 at 97 years of age.Watters p. 407.

        The Mysterious Card/ The Mysterious Card Unveiled

      Boston: Small, Maynard, 1895, 1896 [actually 1912]. First Edition. Two short stories; in Bleiler. The paper seal is still bound in around the second story, but has been broken. Very good in dust jacket. This copy has a cancel title page with only the magazine copyright dates; there is another state (possibly an issue?) with a different copyright notice. The first title is probably the most famous riddle story, and the second title is the author?s attempt to provide an answer, widely regarded as an unsuccessful effort.

An important book, generally regarded as the first work ever published by a Native American woman. Most of the 36 poems in this volume deal with her Native American heritage. Uncommon. E. [Emily] Pauline Johnson was born on the Six Nations Indian Reserve near Brantford, Ontario, in 1862. She received little formal education, but had a natural aptitude for literature and began to write poetry at an early age. In her poetry she expressed, as no one had done before, the intensity and passion, the hopes and feelings - and much, too, of the tragedy - of her people. She died in Vancouver in 1913 and was laid to rest among the ferns and wild flowers in Stanley Park, a short distance from Siwash RockBiographer Charlotte Gray says: "Why does Pauline Johnson, Tekahionwake, the nineteenth century daughter of a Mohawk chief and an English gentlewoman continue to haunt our collective imagination?

        Nagasaki.

      c. 1895 - Hand-coloured albumen print. Three-part panorama, good tonal range and in good condition, photographer's title and number in negative. Dimensions: 210 by 830mm. ( 8.5 by 33 inches). Despite being one of the most artistic and broad-ranging photographers of Japan in the late nineteenth century, little is known about Tamotsu Enami, and many assume him to be the same person as N. Enami. He trained under Ogawa Kazumara, before setting up his own studio in 1892. His studio was successful and had branches as far a field as Hong Kong and the Philippines. It was the only Japanese studio to produce both views and portraits of all sizes and types. Nagasaki lies at the head of a long bay which forms the best natural harbour on the island of Kyushu, and is home to one of Japan's oldest international ports, becoming a 'free port' in 1859. As much of the city was destroyed when it became the target of the world's second atomic bomb attack, these two 19th century views are therefore of great historical importance.

      THE MERRY MUSES OF CALEDONIA;    N.D. Latest date I found was 1895 footnote; Robert Burns; Limited Edition; Privately Printed for Subscribers Only; Rebound Leather; w6.6"xh9.8"; 143 Pages; Very Rare!!!Great For any Fan of the Famous Author or Collector. Great Gift Idea; Only 750 Copies Printed for Great Britain, from the only known copy of 1800 Dumfries Edition, this being #304!!!  ATTRIBUTES:  A Beautiful, sleek dark purple cloth cover design with darker purple morocco leather binding/corners, gold borders, ornate gold floral binding, gold tops of pages, marble end pages and some Great Classic Poetry from the Famous Author; Nice Size!!!  SUMMARY:  A COLLECTION OF FAVOURITE SCOTS SONGS ANCIENT AND MODERN SELECTED FOR THE USE OF THE CROCHALLAN FENCIBLES.Many scholars and Robert Burns enthusiasts prefer not to mention his association with the Merry Muses of Caledonia because they don't like him to be associated with this sort of material. Burns allegedly made no secret of his interest in erotic verse and bawdy song but apparently he kept this in a locked drawer at home. Well, you would, wouldn't you?It was first published within three or four years of his death and of the original only two copies are known to exist but it has since been published several times in facsimile editions. Burns both wrote and collected this material so there is no knowing how much of it is actually his. While some of it is local and clearly from the hand of the bard he may also have collected other material during his tours around Scotland.BACKGROUND:   Robert Burns (25 January 1759 ?" 21 July 1796) (also known as Robbie Burns Rabbie Burns, Scotland's favourite son, the Ploughman Poet, Robden of Solway Firth, the Bard of Ayrshire and in Scotland as The Bard) was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a light Scots dialect, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland. He also wrote in standard English, and in these writings his political or civil commentary is often at its bluntest.   CONDITION:  Condition is Good+/Very Good. Small wear to edges, faint mark to lower back board, darker purple in person, some light blemishing here and there, hinges/text block are very good for around 120 years old!!!
