A ne'er-do-well who was involved in criminal behavior and got into numerous scrapes with authorities,[1] Villon wrote about some of these experiences in his poems.Villon was born in Paris in 1431 (the year that Joan of Arc was burned at the stake).[2] One source gives the date as April 19, 1432 [O.S. April 1, 1431]. Villon's real name may have been François de Montcorbier or François des Loges:[3] both of these names appear in official documents drawn up in Villon's lifetime.

Great 1897 - 1914 229 page travel diary of a young woman, Julia Elizabeth Muser, who was a true world traveler. I'd estimate about 90% of the diary is travel, including a trip to Great Britian, Arctic Circle, France, Gibraltar, traveling West from the US east coast out to California and on to Hawaii, back to California and later onto Asia. Stops in Asia include Calcutta and Manila. The Hawaii content spans only a few pages, as does the Asia content from what I can tell flipping through quickly. I've only skimmed through the pages to get a brief idea of content, so a lot more to discover! Here are an example of a few excerpts: - "July 6th - Hammerfest - the city nearest the north pole - leave there at 1PM. Passing Biree Cliff where millions of birds make their homes - the firing of guns make their world a flutter. The boat anchored to allow passengers the pleasure of fishing. Many fine fish were caught - in few minutes. The day is cloudy and we fear we will not see the sun tonight at 8 o'clock. We reach the great mountainous Cape, but alas no sun. It rains bad - does not ???? nearly half the passengers trying to climb the Cape Cliff...it was a long hard walk..." - At 7 o'clock this morning the pilot and doctor from Honolulu came and to meet us. We were all in good health, and soon landed at the dock, going out to Moana Hotel by street cards. We even delightfully ???? to the lovely scenes and tropic foliage. With views of Chinese gardens and fields, Mountains and Oceans." - "...hear Dr. K?? K??? preach a good sermon.

Photo Albums. STRIKING PHOTO . 2 volume set of photos albums (circa 1897) portraying the Kansas City, Pittsburg & Gulf Railroad, which ran 754 miles from Kansas City to Port Arthur Texas. Both volumes are small oblong folios, 15 ½ x 11 ¼ inches, with pebbled black cloth with black leather binding. Back strip of both volumes very worn with covers nearly detached. One back cover is missing. Contents of both albums in fine condition. Light foxing to albums leaves and typical waviness to pages. 97 silver gel photos loosely inserted into sleeves. Most of the photos are not mounted, 10 x 8 inches, with perhaps a third of them 8 x 6 inches, mounted on linen. Most photos have KC View Co. , or Kan. City View Co. In negative along with photo number. Photos show remarkably good contrast and detail. The verso of all the photos we examined were blank save for a catalog number. Neither photo nor mount are captioned. The Kansas City, Pittsburg & Gulf Railroad (later known as the Kansas City Southern Railroad) was the brainchild of Arthur Edward Stilwell. Stilwell began his career as an itinerant insurance salesman whose career soon morphed into a campaign to build the Kansas City Suburban Belt Railway. From there he cast his eyes onto the completion of a rail line to the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to building new line, Stilwell acquired nearly 95 miles of completed short line track in 1893 as construction made its way south. Early promotional materials from the KCP & G promised completion to Sabine Pass, Texas, or "some city on the Gulf of Mexico." By 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wells, H.G.
London: C. Arthur Pearson Limited, 1897. First Edition. Original red publisher's cloth binding with gilt titles to spine and front board; black illustration to front board. Bookplate of Michael Sharp to front pastedown. Internally unmarked and unread. A superior copy, square, tight, and unfaded. H.G. Wells connects science with philosophy in this novel, which reimagines and modernizes Plato's tale of The Ring of Gyges. According to Plato, the power of invisibility could corrupt anyone possessing it, giving them the upper hand over friends and enemies alike. Wells' lead character Griffin, a scientist, succeeds in doing just this. "Griffin gives in to many of the same temptations. He robs. He injures. He kills...But even though Griffin is guilty of his share of crimes, his goal is not to indulge in hedonism. His goal is just the opposite: he wants to stop being invisible" (Frederick). Ultimately, the practical problems of being an invisible human work counter to Griffin's interests. The need to be clothed, the isolation from other humans lead to Griffin's downfall and death at the hands of a terrified mob. Indeed, much as his actions dehumanize Griffin, his invisibility allows the mob attacking him to treat him as less than human. An exceptionally important consideration of the benefits and dangers of science, and the definition of humanness at the turn of the century. Fine. Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]

Probably compiled by John Keller or his wife
Sierra Leone, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois, 1897. Album. Very good. This album measures 11½" x 9" with 36 pages containing 66 cabinet photographs in page-inserts. Most of the photographs have ink captions on either the front or back. The album is padded in red velvet and has a decorative metal clasp. All are in nice shape with some minor wear to the album. The Church of the United Brethren, the first denomination to begin in the United States, had its origins in the late 1700s and was formally established at Fredrick, Maryland in 1800. It expanded westward, organizing a Home, Frontier and Foreign Missionary Society in 1853, after which establishing missions became an important part of the church. Beginning in 1855, the church established a mission in Sierra Leone, followed by others in Japan, China, Latin America, and the Indian Subcontinent. The majority of images in this album are single or group portraits of members many with ties to the Salem Bible Church at Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, e.g., the Kellers, Phillips, and Smiths. More importantly, 15 are of missionaries who served at Rotofunk Station, Sierra Leone and Sendai, Japan plus two images of the Rotofunk mission, one of the facility and one of a group of converts. The Sierra Leone missionary images include the Reverend and Mrs. Jacob Miller, the Reverend and Mrs. R. N. West, Ellen Groenendyke, Francies Williams, Ella Schenck, Marietta Hatfield M.D., and Elma Bittle. Some of these photographs are important and related to the complete destruction of the mission during the Hut Tax War of 1898: … [Click Below for Full Description]

Photo Albums. STRIKING PHOTO . 2 volume set of photos albums (circa 1897) portraying the Kansas City, Pittsburg & Gulf Railroad, which ran 754 miles from Kansas City to Port Arthur Texas. Both volumes are small oblong folios, 15 ½ x 11 ¼ inches, with pebbled black cloth with black leather binding. Back strip of both volumes very worn with covers nearly detached. One back cover is missing. Contents of both albums in fine condition. Light foxing to albums leaves and typical waviness to pages. 97 silver gel photos loosely inserted into sleeves. Most of the photos are not mounted, 10 x 8 inches, with perhaps a third of them 8 x 6 inches, mounted on linen. Most photos have KC View Co. , or Kan. City View Co. In negative along with photo number. Photos show remarkably good contrast and detail. The verso of all the photos we examined were blank save for a catalog number. Neither photo nor mount are captioned. The Kansas City, Pittsburg & Gulf Railroad (later known as the Kansas City Southern Railroad) was the brainchild of Arthur Edward Stilwell. Stilwell began his career as an itinerant insurance salesman whose career soon morphed into a campaign to build the Kansas City Suburban Belt Railway. From there he cast his eyes onto the completion of a rail line to the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to building new line, Stilwell acquired nearly 95 miles of completed short line track in 1893 as construction made its way south. Early promotional materials from the KCP & G promised completion to Sabine Pass, Texas, or "some city on the Gulf of Mexico." By 1895 Stilwell c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anthony, Susan B.
[N.P.]: [N.P.], May 1897. First edition. First separate offprint of Susan B. Anthony's speech, originally appearing in volume 17 of The Arena in May 1897 and here released the same year. In Fine condition, with 9 pages in original self-wraps stapled at spine. Signed at the header: "With kind regards, Susan B. Anthony. Rochester NY. Dec. 28/[18]97." The present is the only copy to appear in the modern auction record, in 2017, and is the only copy on the market. Listed in Krichmar's index as an important example of suffrage campaigning, The Status of Woman does not appear in OCLC as an offprint or as an article in The Arena. As the American woman suffrage movement neared the half-century mark in its fight for equality, Susan B. Anthony released this article as a testament to progress and a call for increased action. Within the first three pages she decries the limitations placed on women in the past: a lack of access to education, denial of participation in fields from literature to medicine to theology, the inability to own property, and a lack of control over one's own body. "Such was the helpless, dependent, fettered condition of woman when the first Woman's Rights Convention was called just forty nine years ago, at Seneca Falls, NY, by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. Half a century before this, Mary Wollstonecraft had written her Vindication of the Rights of Woman, that matchless plea for the equality of the sexes...While there had been individual demands from time to time, the first organized body to make a declaration of the rights of women was the one which m … [Click Below for Full Description]

Carroll, Lewis [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson]
MacMillan and Co, London, 1897. Finely bound example of Carroll's classic work. Octavo, 2 volumes, bound by Bayntun in full crushed red morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels, raised bands, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt turn-ins, original cloth covers and spines bound in. Illustrated by John Tenniel, text illustrated. A very nice set. Alice's Adventures were "born on a golden afternoon" in July 1862, when the Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) took the three small daughters of Dean Liddell of Christ Church on a boating trip up the Isis. Carroll delighted the three children by relating Alice's adventures, and eventually promised his favorite among the three, Alice Liddell, to write the story down for her. Through the Looking-Glass can be seen as a mirror image of the Alice's Adventures. For example, the latter begins outdoors in the warmth of May 4 and uses the imagery of playing cards, while the former begins indoors on a snowy, cold November 4 and uses the imagery of chess. "The two Alice books completed the reinstatement of the imagination, so long disapproved of by the opponents of fairy stories, to its proper place. ‘Alice is, in a word, a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete’" (Carpenter & Prichard, 102).
