        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.

        CANYONS OF THE COLORADO.

      Meadville, Pa. 1895. - 400pp. including illustrations, plus plates (ten double- page). Half title. Frontispiece portrait. Large quarto. Modern three-quarter leather over original brown publisher's cloth, cover stamped in gilt, spine gilt with leather labels. Old ex-lib. markings on half title, titlepage, and text block edges. Some leaves with small edge tears. Minor soiling. A good copy. This is the first complete narrative of Powell's famous expedition of 1869-72, previously documented only in reports consisting largely of scientific data. Privately published, this volume contains far more information than any of the government reports of Powell's journeys, and is the best book of one of the seminal figures in the West in the late 19th century. It also contains important documentation of Powell's botanizing and collecting activities. The double-page views of the Grand Canyon are after topographical artist W.H. Holmes' beautiful drawings. This is a very elusive book, remarkable in being quite large and extensive, but privately printed and evidently issued in a very small edition. It is one of the most difficult books to find, of major textual importance, in all Western Americana. HOWES P527, "aa." GRAFF 3335. TAXONOMIC LITERATURE 8244. FARQUHAR, COLORADO RIVER 43.

        Photograph Album from Virginia and West Virginia

      Oblong octavo. Flexible cloth with blank black leaves. 240 photographs of different sizes and processes. Minor wear and some oxidizing to some of the photographs, overall very good. A few are captioned, usually with first names only. Undated, but spanning circa 1895-1920. Location not immediately obvious but reportedly the album had a Virginia origin, and there are many photographs from a railroad and logging location that display the post office for Mullins (now Mullens) in southern West Virginia. A wide variety of images that seem to center around a few young women, probably sisters, beginning near the end of the 19th Century and progressing through the first decade or so of the 20th. The young women are shown in a variety of poses and outfits: in bathing costumes, humorously eating bananas, picnicking, and courting. There are also pictures of various sporting activities including tennis, fishing, croquet, canoeing, and a baseball game near the railroad tracks. Curiously there is an image of John Mulbetsch, All-American football player for the University of Michigan (Mulbetsch later coached at Marshall College in West Virginia). There are also numerous photos that feature an imposing factory in the background. A substantial number of images are devoted to lumber mills, house building, surveying, and the construction of the railroad, presumably at or near Mullins, and the transformation of the mountainous and rustic area into a town, including several images of rudimentary businesses such as The Railroad and Miners Pharmacy and the Busy Bee Restaurant. .

Red cloth hardcover with black impressing shows some wear, especially to fore-edges. Rebacked in red cloth with new spine label (also red). Ink note on title page and first page of preface. Very mild soiling first few pages. Etienne Jules Marey, physician and physiologist, first began his fascination with movement through his discoveries in circulation and blood pressure. This early work inspired him to explore the movement of the body itself, comprised of linked parts that are subject to universal physical laws. He nurtured the art of capturing cycles of movement through time in a single frame, such as seen on page 58. The book covers such topics as chronophotography, kinetics, dynamics, locomotion in humans from an artistic point of view, locomotion of quadrupeds, the flight of birds and insects, and microscopic chronophotography.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      O. O., 1. I. 1895. - 2 SS. 8vo. An Pierre Louÿs, dem er Neujahrsgrüße sendet und erzählt, daß er beauftragt worden sei, auszurichten, daß die 'Gitanes' völlig tugendhafte Frauen seien. Er möge das Wort 'Cuidado' im Wörterbuch nachlesen, darüber meditieren und seinen Profit daraus ziehen. - Der Sohn eines wohlhabenden spanischen Kaffeepflanzers und einer französischen Mutter war neben Leconte de Lisle und Sully-Prudhomme der bedeutendste Vertreter der Dichtergruppe der Parnassiens. "In knapper, suggestiver Sprache, die dem Symbolismus verwandte Klangwirkungen zeigt, läßt Hérédia die verschiedensten Zeitepochen und Weltgegenden vor dem geistigen Auge erstehen. Er erhob die Form des Sonetts zu seither nicht mehr erreichter Vollkommenheit" (Brockhaus, 17. Aufl., s. v.). - Mit Montagespuren im weißen Rand, sonst schönes Autograph. Selten.

        AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT, SIGNED ("M.T.), INCORPORATING AN AUTOGRAPH NOTE, SIGNED.

      Quarry Farm, Elmira, NY. 2 July 1895. - One page, in ink, on quarto front panel of a large linen-lined envelope. Marginal pencil note crossed through, several ink squiggles in blank areas symptomatic of a struggle with an unreliable pen, otherwise very good. A manuscript memento of a famous artifact, being Clemens' fourteen line rough draft verse (signed "M.T."), written in preparation for his inscribing the verse on three stones for presentation to Mrs. Thomas K. Beecher, wife of Reverend Beecher who officiated at the wedding of Clemens and Livy Langdon in 1870. An account of the undertaking appears in the October 1895 number of MUNSEY'S, and in brief, a sort of wager grew out of a friendly debate between Clemens and Mrs. Beecher about the immortality of the soul. Mrs. Beecher concluded by asking Clemens: "If you meet me in heaven a million years from now, will you confess yourself wrong?" And when Clemens assented, she insisted a record of his agreement be rendered in stone for future generations. The manuscript in hand is Clemens' draft of what was placed on three sections cut from a stone Mrs. Beecher picked up from the Susquehanna river bed near Charles Beecher's summer home near Wyalusing, PA. The actual stones, known as the "wager stones," are now preserved in the Twain Archive at Elmira College. Clemens' poem (incorporating his alterations) reads: "If you prove right & I prove wrong [/] A million years from now, [/] In language plain & frank & strong [/] My error I'll avow [/] To your dear mocking face. [/] If I prove right, by God his grace [/] Full sorry I shall be, [/] For in that solitude no trace [/] There'll be of you & me [/] Nor of our vanished race. [/] A million years, O patient stone, [/] You've waited for this message: [/] Deliver it a million hence [Survivor pay expressage.] M.T." Appended to the manuscript is an autograph note from Clemens, 2 July 1895, to Livy Clemens' friend, Clara Spaulding: "Dear Clara: Livy says it is this rough old original draft that you preferred. I didn't understand & I beg pardon. This looks too disreputable. My purpose was to have a nice trim comely copy made for you. Yours ever, SL Clemens."
