One of the "Big Four" Cattle books, with biographies of some 448 cattlemen and extensive contemporary account of the Texas Cattle trade. One of the so-called "big four" cattle books and, in our experience, the most difficult to obtain. The size and nature of the binding on this book often results in its being found in poor condition.

        THE STOLEN BACILLUS and Other Incidents

      1895 - London: Methuen & Co., 1895. 32 pp ads dated September 1895. Original dark blue cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition of this collection of fifteen tales, along a science fiction vein -- Wells's first book of short stories and his second volume of science fiction (after THE TIME MACHINE). The title tale concerns an anarchist who steals what he thinks is cholera bacteria with which to infect all of London -- when in fact the bacteria only turn victims bright blue (a "marvellous twist from the macabre to the ludicrous" - Smith). Also included are "The Flowering of the Strange Orchid," "The Lord of the Dynamos" and "The Flying Man."~This is a handsome copy, virtually without wear -- fine except that the spine gilt is slightly less bright than the front cover gilt. In our experience Wells's less-known science fiction volumes, such as this one and THE PLATTNER STORY, are considerably scarcer than his better-known ones such as THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, THE INVISIBLE MAN and THE TIME MACHINE. Hammond C1; Wells Soc. 6; Currey p. 523. Housed in a custom clamshell case. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Collection of 13 original photographs, mostly at 'Morwenstowe' station at Wallaga Lake, including a group portrait of Aboriginal schoolchildren

      circa, 1895. Collection of 13 albumen prints measuring approximately 110 x 155 mm, each with early cursive annotations to verso; some prints a little faded yet very good condition overall. Collection of 13 original photographs documenting daily life at Wallaga Lake during the later nineteenth-century, including a significant group portrait including Aboriginal children at Corunna school circa 1895. Four Aboriginal children are included in the portrait of 20 schoolchildren, and an inscribed note to the reverse of the photograph identifies this as the school at Corunna (located some 10 kilometres north of Wallaga Aboriginal reserve). The reserve was created in 1891 and became home to over 90 Yuin Aboriginal persons. The children in the group portrait were under the care and instruction of Sister Ivy, who is identified by name in a separate portrait photograph included in this collection. Several other photographs detail the homestead 'Morwenstowe' located upon the shores of Wallaga Lake, showing the clearing and improvement of the farm as well as boating, coaching and other leisure activities. Three photographs in the collection depict high country pastures around Tumut; the remainder concern the Wallaga Lake region and hinterlands.

        Costumes & Customs in Japan in Phototype and From Photographic Negatives Taken by Him

      K. Ogawa, Tokyo (No. 1 Iidamachi Shichome, Kojimachik) 1895 - [12 High Quality Collotype Plates of Japanese Dress and Customs by the famous Japanese photographer and printer, Kazumasa (aka Kazuma or Isshin) Ogawa]. 1895, (11 1/2 x 16 in - 30 x 40.5 cm), decorated card covers, cord ties, 12 black and white collotypes on heavy paper stock and each protected by a tissue guard with no text or lettering. The term phototype is the same as collotype. The collotype plates have the descriptive title printed directly on the plate below the image. As is typical of these books, there is no colophon. The cover design is the same as found other Ogawa collotype books of this period (stylized scale pattern with waves in silver). This is one volume of a two volume set, both with this title, that was published ca 1892. However, the volume does not indicate it is a part of a set. While all lettering is in English, the book is assembled Japanese style with the title cover at the back and intended to be opened and read from back to front. The cover bears a printed price of "2.50 Yen." The 12 collotypes are titled: 1) Tea picking at Uji, 2) Old court dress, 3)Costume, in former times of a daughter of the higher class, 4) Hair-dressing, 5) Battle-dore and shuttle-cock play, 6) Koto playing, 7) The art of flower arranging, 8) The ceremony of "Cha-no-yu", 9) Musical entertainment, 10) A Jinrikisha ride to the flower show, 11) Cotton-spinning and 12) Carpenters at work. ~ Condition. The book is in Good condition. The covers have numerous chipped and torn areas but they are firmly attached by the cord ties. The plates have light to moderate foxing in the margins but the image areas are clean. One plate has a 3/4 in tear in the margin. Paper is light tan and supple, not brittle. ~~ More information, to include digital pictures, available on request.

        Costumes and Customs in Japan, Vol. I & II

      K. Ogawa, Tokyo 1895 - [24 Black and White Collotype Plates - The Complete Two Volume Set of this Classic Kazumasa Ogawa Work]. Volumes I and II, large 4to (11 3/4 x 16 in - 30 x 40.5 cm), Meiji 28 (1895), decorated card covers, cord ties, 12 black and white collotype plates per volume. Title states "In Collotype from Photographic Negatives Taken by Him." Collotype plates in Volume I are: 1) Tea picking at Uji, 2) Old court dress, 3) Costume in former times of a daughter of the higher class, 4) Hair-dressing, 5) Battle-dore and shuttle-cock play, 6) Koto playing, 7) The art of flower arranging, 8) The ceremony of "Cha-no-yu." 9) Musical entertainment, 10) A Jinrikisha ride to the flower show, 11) Cotton-spinning and 12) Carpenters at work. Collotype plates in Volume II are: 1) A Japanese Dancing-Girl, 2) A Japanese Dancing-Girl, 3) A Studying the piece, 4) Shinto Vestal Virgins (Kasuga Temple, Nara), 5) Dancing at Koyo-Kwan (Maple Club) in Shiba, 6) Maple-Dance at the Koyo-Kwan, 7) The Toilet, 8) A Letter, 9) Outdoor Winter Costume, 10) Fisher-Maidens, 11) A Family Meal and 12)Sayonara! Each plate is protected by tissue guard and has a descriptive title below the image on the plate. One plate in Volume II - "The Toilet" - is rather unusual for an Ogawa book in that is shows a young lady with no cloths from the waste up. While such photographs were common in the tourist trade of this period, it appears that Ogawa refrained from using them in the books he published. Each book contains a rarely seen slip colophon inserted loose in front of the inside back cover. These colophon slips make it possible to definitively date these books to 1895. Normally books in this set are found without a colophon as none was printed on the a pages actually bound into the book. The book is bound with two cord ties. Each cord tie uses four stab holes and the cord is tied off in an "X" pattern through the holes at the front. ~ Condition. Both books are in Very Good condition. The condition is much better than the norm. The covers have light soiling and minor edge wear, particularly at the corners. There are ca 1cm stain areas in the areas under the cord ties. On Volume II one of the two bottom cord ties is broken. The back cover of Volume II has a 3 x .5 cm scraped area at the bottom edge. The binding of both books is solid and tight. The plates are clean and free of foxing or staining. ~~ Bulky set and extra postage will apply. ~~~ More information, to include digital pictures, available on request.

        Autograph Notes for his Emancipation Day Address, January 1, 1895

      Four leaves of notes in the hand of Booker T. Washington, unsigned, written on the rectos of Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute stationery, and headed in his hand: "Emancipation Address Montgomery, Ala." and dated "Jan. 1 '95." The pages are of irregular sizes, apparently culled from scrap paper around his office, and are pinned together with an old straight pin. Washington was a talented improvisational speaker, and rarely wrote his speeches out whole, delivering them from notes and talking points such as these -- usually a list of phrases that would presumably trigger an idea or anecdote. For example, this speech begins with the following phrases on separate lines: "Two flags. Ahead of all Negroes. In and out of slavery. Ignorance costs more than ed. Intelligence rules (Indians)," and so forth. This particular speech however, was an important precursor to Washington's landmark "Atlanta Compromise Speech." On page four of these notes, appears the phrase "Cast down bucket," wording that nine months later would become the essence of the catch phrase that symbolized one of the most important speeches ever delivered by an African-American.On September 18, 1895 Washington spoke before a predominantly white audience at the Cotton States and International Exposition in Atlanta. His "Atlanta Compromise" address was one of the most important and influential speeches in American history, particularly among those outside the sphere of politics. In the speech, he related an anecdote to the audience that became the catch phrase for both the speech and Washington's philosophy: "A ship lost at sea for many days suddenly sighted a friendly vessel. From the mast of the unfortunate vessel was seen a signal, 'Water, water; we die of thirst!' The answer from the friendly vessel at once came back, 'Cast down your bucket where you are.' A second time the signal, 'Water, water; send us water!' ran up from the distressed vessel, and was answered, 'Cast down your bucket where you are.' And a third and fourth signal for water was answered, 'Cast down your bucket where you are.' The captain of the distressed vessel, at last heeding the injunction, cast down his bucket, and it came up full of fresh, sparkling water from the mouth of the Amazon River. To those of my race who depend on bettering their condition in a foreign land or who underestimate the importance of cultivating friendly relations with the Southern white man, who is their next-door neighbor, I would say: 'Cast down your bucket where you are'--- cast it down in making friends in every manly way of the people of all races by whom we are surrounded." In the speech, Washington went on to urge the white audience members to do the same as he recommended to his own race: to cast down their buckets where they were, in order to reap the benefits of friendship, labor, and the profits that could be reaped by utilizing the talented and industrious members of the black race who were their neighbors.Despite some occasionally expressed resentment about Washington's perceived role as an accommodationist, few individuals of any race or time period compiled such a record of accomplishment in the face of more concerted opposition.An exceptionally important artifact presaging a pivotal moment, not only in black history, but in the history of America. .

        Catt. Parthenia Prince of Wales

      Britain 1895 - Macfarlane studied at the Paisley Art School and then made his way to London to seek his fame and fortune. Eventually, he began to focus on commission based projects, finding employment from wealthy orchid-growers wishing to record their triumphs of orchid culture. Through this period, he pioneered the style and format which came to be used for record keeping by the Royal Horticultural Society's Orchid Committee. This exquisite watercolor, Catt. Parthenia Prince of Wales, 12.25” x 9.75”, is in excellent condition, with vibrant coloring and detailing of the orchid petals. Macfarlane’s admiration for orchids can be understood by their enduring history. Epiphytic orchids were first were brought to Great Britain in the 1700s from the West Indies and China and by the end of that century 15 species were growing at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in Great Britain. Orchids can impart a wide variety of messages, but historically the meanings of orchids have included wealth, love and beauty and it is their graceful appearance that is no doubt responsible for their fascination among audiences past and present. Indeed, among the many different varietals of flowers, the orchid holds a special place as one of the most alluring and captivating, making them a special symbol of exotic beauty. Their charm and mystique delight those who receive them, for few other flowers have the ability to impress their recipient in the same way that the orchid can. Macfarlane’s intricately drawn watercolors reflect why flower specialists consider orchids to be the world's most evolved flowers.
