        A gorgeous piece of brass from the U S S Maine, whose explosion in Cuba helped trigger the Spanish American War

      A thick brass plate, 2.75" x 2.75" screwed to a 4.5" x 4.5" wooden plaque bearing the identification: "U.S.S. MAINE DESTROYED FEBR. 15 1898." A brass stand has been affixed to the reverse. A few minor surface dings, else very good condition overall. The U.S.S. Maine, which had been ordered to Cuba to protect American interests during the anti-Spanish insurrection, exploded on the night of February 15, 1898. Americans immediately suspected Spanish sabotage, and the explosion became a rallying cry for those advocating war against Spain: "Remember the Maine; to Hell with Spain." Although two American investigations concluded that the ship was struck by a submarine mine, later inquiries, beginning with a 1974 study commissioned by Admiral Hyman Rickover, concluded that the explosion had been triggered when coal stores spontaneously combusted which was located next to the forward powder magazine. (Ironically, Rickover's conclusions closely matched those of an inquiry initiated by Spanish authorities in Cuba soon after the incident).

        The Lanthorn Book, being a small collection of Tales and Verses read at the Sign of The Lanthorn -

      New York: 126 William Street, [1898] - The only "signed and limited edition" of a book by Stephen Crane, the Lanthorn Book was issued for members of the Lanthorn Club on William Street in New York. It contains the story "The Wise Men" which was collected in "The Open Boat" in the same year. No priority has been established (according to Blanck) because it is not known in what month the Lanthorn book was published. According to Starrett it was the intention of the Club to have each contributor sign his piece and he writes: "but it is asserted that only between ten and fifteen copies" were signed by Crane. This theory has lately been disproven in that a much larger number of copies examined contain Crane's signature First edition, no. 9 of 125 copies. Small folio. Illustrated. Title page printed in red and black. Printed on rectos only on folded sheets, unpaginated. Original quarter reverse calf and green cloth, pictorial label on upper board. Spine worn, with minor loss at head. Internally very fresh. In a cloth clamshell box. An attractive copy of a rare book.

Folio. With a large woodcut decorated initial. Modern brown half morocco, marbled sides.

      Duro, Armada Espanola (1898), p. 502 ; Maggs, Bibl. Americana et Philippina, vol. 5 (1926), 4271; Medina, Manila 66. Only copy located of the first edition of an interesting publication from the Jesuit press in Manila, a supplement to the author's only slightly less rare Relacion de varios sucesos de mar y tierra en las ilas Filipinas ..., published at Manila earlier in the same year. This supplement describes the conflicts between the Dutch and Spanish in June and July 1647 in several areas around Manila Bay: near the Spanish port of Kawit (in the province of Cavite), at the fortified monastery in the province of Pampanga (which the Dutch conquered) and elsewhere. ''All these events are related with much spirit" (Maggs). The author was a padre (friar) of the Orden de la Merced (Order of the blessed Virgin Mary of Mercy) and apparently Capellan Mayor of the Capilla de la Encarnacion in Manila.Formerly folded horizontally and vertically, browned, and with a few tears and restaurations, but still generally good. Only copy located of a 1647 Manila imprint also interesting for its textual content.

        JOHN BULL'S ADVICE. SEE The Klondyke Nugget!

      Birmingham: Moody Bros., [ca. 1898]. - Chromolithographic poster, 20 x 30 inches. Minor soiling and wear, a few small closed tears in the margin. Flyer for local theatre pasted to right side of sheet (in image). Very good. A rare poster for the popular stage play, THE KLONDYKE NUGGET, written and performed by S.F. Cody throughout the British Isles at the end of the 19th century. Samuel Franklin Cody (1867-1913) was a unique figure in late Victorian Anglo-American popular entertainment. Born Samuel Franklin Cowdery, he later changed his surname to capitalize on the fame of Buffalo Bill Cody, even mimicking Buffalo Bill's clothing and facial hair style. Born in Texas, S.F. Cody trained in the Forepaugh Wild West Show, and found much of his fame in England. He is renowned in the history of aviation as the first man to conduct a powered flight in England, and he later developed large kites that were used for artillery spotting during World War I. Cody's life was filled with tall tales (though some of them are perhaps true), including his claim that he prospected for gold in Dawson City during the Klondike Gold Rush. That story set the groundwork for the theatrical play advertised herein, where Cody plays the role of George Exelby; Lela Cody, his (common law) second wife, the part of Rosie; and her son, Edward LeRoy, plays Joe Smith. This poster shows a portly British gent in a Union Jack waistcoat centered in the sheet, endorsing the play by giving a thumbs up. He is surrounded by a varied cast of characters from all nations and ethnicities - a Native American, an Eskimo, an African tribesman, a Scotsman, Uncle Sam, a Chinaman, and an Aussie with a Kangaroo, among others. An ad for "The Theatre, Neath. Near G.W. Station" is pasted to the right side of the sheet, indicating that the play runs three nights only, December 5,6, & 7.

        Psychic researcher F.W.H. Myers writes that his wife ?has caught diphtheria ? in visiting some wretched homes ? & has had a very close struggle for life?? ? he died 3 years later, his wife survived him by 36 years

      "Autograph Letter Signed ?F W H Myers,? 3.5p, 4.5? x 5?, front & verso on two conjoined sheets. ?Leckhampton House,? Cambridge stationery, January 6, 1898. To Sally. Fine condition.In part, ?Your welcome words & your beautiful bird-pictures came like a glimpse of sunlight with what has been of late a very sad house. My Wife has caught diphtheria, as we believe, in visiting some wretched homes in her work for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, - & has had a very close struggle for life. Antitoxin has, we now trust, saved her; but her exhaustion is still extreme; - She could not read your letter or look at your birds herself ?" But she has been most patient at home, & is as full of love as ever ... All is done that can be done; - by Doctors, & Nurses ... Often I also think of you:- & wonder as to your inward fates, & what may befall that womanly & buoyant heart...?F.W.H. Myers? wife, photographer Eveleen Tennant Myers (1856-1937), survived her illness and lived another 39 years. Myers died on January 17, 1901, in Rome. After his death, many claimed communications from his spirit came from mediums around the world. Irish spiritualist medium, author, and suffragette Geraldine Cummins (1890-1969) claimed that she channeled two books in which Myers describes the afterworld as a resident. The first was published as ?The Road to Immortality? (1933), the second as ?Beyond Human Personality? (1935)."
