One of the Dalton brothers was killed while serving as a deputy for the judge and, of course, there is much on outlaws and peace and peace officers."---Jeff Dykes in Rare Western Outlaw Books.

        Autographed Typed Letter from Susan B. Anthony on the Stationery of the National American Woman Suffrage Association to Helen Pillsbury Cogswell, the daughter of Pillsbury Cogswell. Dated 19 December 1898. Includes the letter's envelope

      Rochester, NY, 1898. Letter. Near Fine. Letter. One page letter, signed "Susan B. Anthony". Letter and envelope are both in very nice shape. The letter has only some light edge wear, and there is some slight postal soiling to the envelope. In this letter, Anthony informs Cogswell that she has just received "some of the huge volumes of my biography" and notes that she will be dispatching a set to her shortly, "in memory of your dear father, mother and husband, and recognition of your own splendid services to them and to the world." She goes on to note that as they worked together on the book, her biographer, Mrs. Ida Husted Harper, would frequently say, "I do hope Mr. Pillsbury will live to read what I have said about him." Unfortunately, Parker Pillsbury died before the first two volumes of Anthony's biography were completed. Years before, Pillsbury, Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton had formed what Anthony previously referred to as "the Revolutionary trio" for their long-time and very close association working on the entwined causes of abolition and suffrage which they began as Garrisonians in the 1850s. Later in 1868, bitter and furious with the traditional abolitionists over their refusal to include women's suffrage in what would become the Fifteenth Amendment-something that Stanton described as "stand[ing] aside and see[ing] 'Sambo' walk into the kingdom [of civil rights] first"-the trio began publishing a weekly periodical, Revolution, which forcefully advocated for women's suffrage as well as addressed a number of related issues including birth control, divorce, prostitution, and abortion (which, probably to the surprise of many today, they regarded as infanticide). Pillsbury remained active in the suffrage movement until his death in 1898 at age 88. Anthony concludes her letter with an invitation to Cogswell for "a whole week's or month's visit.

        The Visits of Constance (Three Albums)

      1898-1920 1898 - I: 25 by 31 cm, oblong, 58 pp. Covering years 1898 to 1901. II: 32 by 43 cm, oblong. Covering years 1902 to 1905. 61 pp. III: 33 by 43 cm, oblong. 60 pp. following by blank card leaves. Covers years 1907 to 19120s (latter part is more scattered).Among the watercolors are two by Charles Crombie, both of the rules of golf, a few years before he had similar work published in his "Rules of Golf", and two by Henry J. Ford. With approx. 67 watercolors, 38 pen and ink and 6 pencil drawings. (These elude a precise count since the images are sometimes a collage and thus a matter of opinion whether they represent discrete illustrations. In just one instance, we counted as a single pen and ink drawing a group that might as easily be regarded as a dozen individual drawings. Some of the items might appropriately be described as vignettes or cameos; when there are a few of these, all somehow related, on a single page, we count them as just one. When a picture carries over onto two pages, we count that as one. The watercolors generally have some pen and ink work, but the result reads as a watercolor painting. Among the works tallied as pen and ink illustrations are a few with a small quotient of color, including watercolor. Since in our judgment the pen and ink aspect of these pieces dominates, we treat them as pen and ink.)These are a remarkable set of three albums chronicling weekend visits to numerous grand country homes during the Edwardian Age. The compiler, Constance Jardine, was a cinch as a popular guest, blessed with good looks, connections, talent, and one can surmise, charm and an ingratiating personality. She was clearly someone who reveled in the comforts and privileges that were a part of the whole way of life that was soon to unravel with the upheavals brought on by the First World War, death taxes and the whole reordering of society that went along with "modernity". These disruptions figure into the latter part of the third album, as the entries change in character and the organizing principle no longer centers around particular weekend jaunts. But until that point, the albums can be enjoyed by us as pure escapism to Jardine’s milieu. If you ask us, Jardine invites us to do that, just as she must have enthusiastically shared her albums with her hosts and fellow guests. One can picture her producing the album in progress at tea, or perhaps by a fireside on a rainy day, letting others leaf through its pages, and exhorting them to contribute a clever verse, a funny drawing, or simply their autograph.Hers was the rarefied world now popularly recreated with the hit serial series, Downton Abbey. Or was it? Downton Abbey and other fictional works like it offer a very loose parallel, since there were layers and divisions within that "world". Never do we encounter Royalty in the albums, nor were the parties overflowing with dukes, viscounts, prime ministers or other ranking cabinet members. Constance’s itinerary did not take in the most magnificent and storied of estates – places like Woburn Abbey, Chatsworth, Castle Howard or Blenheim – and some of the homes look comparatively modest. Rather, the album covers what we might regard as the more ordinary rich at play. There are a handful of the genuinely fame, but most could probably have walked across Trafalgar Square without causing heads to turn. In the context of social history, this is part of the value of these albums; they offer us a glimpse on the upper class of that time and place akin to what we might find in a Henry James or John Galsworthy novel, but without being mediated by an author who has molded the material to fit his own literary ends. In this far more expansive layer of the upper crust it was not conceivable that everyone knew everyone else, even by reputation, but the pleasures of social life were just as great, if not more so, than the pageantry of a weekend where the guest list was culled down to the "cream" of society, and where some of the fizzle was from the del

        Among my Books. Papers on Literary Subjects by the Following Writers: Augustine Birrell, Andrew Lang [etc] With a Preface by H D Trail

      London: Eliot Stock, 1898 Book. Very Good. Full-Leather. Signed by Author(s). x, [1] pp 2-158 An extra illustrated copy of the first reprint of Henry Duff Traill's collection of book collectors' essays from the year of its original publication, 1898. The volume has been custom bound in tan calf with gilt decoration and inner dentelles and green coated endpapers, rubbed, in order to accommodate the inserted manuscript material. The upper hinge and joint are very tender indeed. A book label which may identify the extra-illustrator appears on the first pastedown: 'Ex Libris C. C. Cunningham' although the volume may in fact have been compiled by the book's editor. The first section of manuscript material appears, mounted on new page stubs, bound in, after the title page. This begins with a letter from Traill on 'Literature' headed paper (July 4 [18]98) paper to his publisher, Elliot Stock, alerting them to the copy he is sending them for the preface of 'the reprint of "Among my Books"' and a request for a proof. A draft reply from the publishers is also included. Traill's preface runs to fifteen manuscript pages, written in black ink on sheets of paper that have been folded in order to accommodate them within the book. This is corrected throughout and concludes with Traill's initials. As editor and a long practised writer Traill appears to have submitted what is in effect a corrected first draft of his preface to his publishers. This appears to conform to the printed version which appears in this edition of the book. The essay is conceived as a response by Traill to criticism of the first edition, principally against the claim by 'captious critics' that the contributors could have been inspired by 'a review read in a railway train or a novel lying on a club table'. Over its 15 manuscript pages Traill goes to some lengths to demonstrate that 'the association with the library is not, I think, difficult to trace.' Percy Fitzgerald's galley proofs for his essay 'Pickwick' are also bound in on new page stubs before the printed version of the essay at the other end of the book, in which he enlarges upon the peculiar enthusiasm of the English reading public (and its besotted author) for Mr Pickwick: 'The oddity... is that no other work of Boz's has had this fruitfulness'. Fitzgerald is particularly interested in the genesis of the story as well as the bibliographical niceties surrounding its publication and enlarges on both in his heavily augmented proofs. There are three folded galley proof sheets; each emphatically corrected and augmented. Even in the first paragraph Fitzgerald bolsters his argument by adding a list of recent critics: 'Mr Land, Professor Ward, Rimmer, Frost, Hughes, Kitton, Ashby, Sterry, Englishmen [struck out] American as well as English, all have expatiated on the subject'. The largest interpolation comes close to the end of the essay with a 150 word addition to the text on the relationship between Pickwick and 'Boz's own experiences'. Additionally there are the usual corrections of spelling and punctuation throughout. Fitzgerald shows that he had second thoughts about the conclusion of the essay, removing his final printed sentence from the galley and indicating the fact to the publisher.

        THE CRUISE OF THE "CACHALOT"

      London: Smith, Elder, 1898. Bullen, Frank T. THE CRUISE OF THE "CACHALOT," Round the World after Sperm Whales. Illustrated by A. Twidle [frontispiece still with tissue-guard] and containing the original fold-out map [lacking in many copies]. London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1898. Original publisher&#39;s deep blue patterned sand-grain cloth with gilt "whale" design. FIRST EDITION. A FINE bright copy of this Victorian whaling classic, with only the minutest wear at the extremities. Printed on the verso of one of the prelims is a short but enthusiastic letter from Kipling (author of CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS) to Bullen which was used as an advertisement to convince readers as to the authenticity of Bullen&#39;s writing. John Carter and Michael Sadleir, two of the best-known collectors of Victorian sea stories, joined forces to rank THE CRUISE OF THE "CACHALOT" as one of the greatest Victorian sea tales and Frank T. Bullen as one of the finest Victorian sea-novelists, second only to Frederick Marryat. We have seen many copies of this first edition over the years but one would be hard-pressed to find a nicer example. Wolff 916.. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine. Illus. by A. Twidle.

        The Visits of Constance (Three Albums)

      1898-1920. I: 25 by 31 cm, oblong, 58 pp. Covering years 1898 to 1901. II: 32 by 43 cm, oblong. Covering years 1902 to 1905. 61 pp. III: 33 by 43 cm, oblong. 60 pp. following by blank card leaves. Covers years 1907 to 19120s (latter part is more scattered).& & Among the watercolors are two by Charles Crombie, both of the rules of golf, a few years before he had similar work published in his &#147;Rules of Golf&#148;, and two by Henry J. Ford. & & With approx.. 67 watercolors, 38 pen and ink and 6 pencil drawings. (These elude a precise count since the images are sometimes a collage and thus a matter of opinion whether they represent discrete illustrations. In just one instance, we counted as a single pen and ink drawing a group that might as easily be regarded as a dozen individual drawings. Some of the items might appropriately be described as vignettes or cameos; when there are a few of these, all somehow related, on a single page, we count them as just one. When a picture carries over onto two pages, we count that as one. The watercolors generally have some pen and ink work, but the result reads as a watercolor painting. Among the works tallied as pen and ink illustrations are a few with a small quotient of color, including watercolor. Since in our judgment the pen and ink aspect of these pieces dominates, we treat them as pen and ink.)& & These are a remarkable set of three albums chronicling weekend visits to numerous grand country homes during the Edwardian Age. The compiler, Constance Jardine, was a cinch as a popular guest, blessed with good looks, connections, talent, and one can surmise, charm and an ingratiating personality. She was clearly someone who reveled in the comforts and privileges that were a part of the whole way of life that was soon to unravel with the upheavals brought on by the First World War, death taxes and the whole reordering of society that went along with &#147;modernity&#148;. & & These disruptions figure into the latter part of the third album, as the entries change in character and the organizing principle no longer centers around particular weekend jaunts. But until that point, the albums can be enjoyed by us as pure escapism to Jardine&#146;s milieu. If you ask us, Jardine invites us to do that, just as she must have enthusiastically shared her albums with her hosts and fellow guests. One can picture her producing the album in progress at tea, or perhaps by a fireside on a rainy day, letting others leaf through its pages, and exhorting them to contribute a clever verse, a funny drawing, or simply their autograph.& & Hers was the rarefied world now popularly recreated with the hit serial series, Downton Abbey. & & Or was it? Downton Abbey and other fictional works like it offer a very loose parallel, since there were layers and divisions within that &#147;world&#148;. Never do we encounter Royalty in the albums, nor were the parties overflowing with dukes, viscounts, prime ministers or other ranking cabinet members. Constance&#146;s itinerary did not take in the most magnificent and storied of estates &#150; places like Woburn Abbey, Chatsworth, Castle Howard or Blenheim &#150; and some of the homes look comparatively modest. & & Rather, the album covers what we might regard as the more ordinary rich at play. There are a handful of the genuinely fame, but most could probably have walked across Trafalgar Square without causing heads to turn. In the context of social history, this is part of the value of these albums; they offer us a glimpse on the upper class of that time and place akin to what we might find in a Henry James or John Galsworthy novel, but without being mediated by an author who has molded the material to fit his own literary ends. & & In this far more expansive layer of the upper crust it was not conceivable that everyone knew everyone else, even by reputation, but the pleasures of social life were just as great, if not more so, than the pageantry of a weekend where the guest list was culled down to the &#147;cream&#148; of society, and where some of the fizzle was from the deliberate bringing together of people not well-acquainted with one another. For all its brilliance, this Cliveden sort of weekend, and all its accompanying intricate choreography, had an oppressiveness side to it.& & One can tell from the albums that things were more relaxed during one of Constance&#146;s country house weekends. Since the same names crop up time and again, we can deduce that many of the guests were part of one or two circles of friends. Their days in the country were filled with angling, foxhunting, rabbit hunting, upland bird shooting, croquet, croquet, tennis, golf, card tables, balls and masquerades. Or they might spend an afternoon taking in the race track or a regatta. Which activities were pursued depended a lot on the location and the season, obviously. & & Not to contradict the argument of the prior paragraphs, but there were some recognizable names among those Constance spent these weekends with. We encounter the autograph of the composer Ralph Vaughan Williams a number of times. One weekend included John Hay, the American Secretary of State and formerly the ambassador to Great Britain. From the business world a regular was Ralph Slazenger, a founder of the eponymous sporting goods company. We come across repeatedly members of the Bonham Carter and the Vernon-Harcourt families, both names with name recognition still. Without question there were others, now forgotten, who had some renown in their day. & & The list of properties visited is long, with multiple visits to many of the estates. The properties were scattered throughout the British Isles, and many have names with a poetic lilt. A few are now on the National Trust; others have long ago been converted to other uses, including corporate retreats, nursing homes, condominiums, and not a few have fallen victim to the wrecking ball, as their high cost of maintenance and the tax code conspired to incentivize their destruction for many years of the mid-twentieth century. The properties include Fulmer House; Kilmartin, Drumnadrochit; Paxhill Park, Lindfield, Sussex; Leith Hill, Dorking, twice; Oldany Lodge; Lochinver; Urrard; Orche Hill, Gerrard&#146;s Cross, Uxbridge; Dunninald; Kincardine; Brahan; Rushwood; Stronchreggan; Stradishall Place; Hyde Croft; Farrants, Bickley, Kent; The Grange, Goring-on-Thames, twice; Kirkside, St. Cyrus; Kilberry, Argyllshire; Kilkerran House, Maybole; St. Martin&#146;s Abbey; Sirmshail (?) Place; Aldershot; Northerwood Park, Isle of Wight, twice; Summinghill; Peddybill Park; Kirkside; Aldourie Castle, Inverness; Cudwells; Heacham; Alderbourne; Noraher Wood; Mile Bush End, Leighton; Connemara; Banff; Ollenuyon (?); Smallfield Place, Burstow, Surrey; Knowle Park; Ruthden; Lethen; Bradfield; Frensham; Auchendarroch, Lochgilphead; Pickeridge; Monserrate; Fast Liss; Hardwick; Mainstone Court; Balnamoon; Auchendarroch; Pennyhill Park, Bagshot; Druminnor, Rhynie, Aberdeenshire; Banchory Lodge; Hollington; Welford; Waldershare; Lilliput; and finally, Townhill. & & Some of the visits, it is clear, lasted a month or longer, while others were undoubtedly shorter.& & Not all the homes were palatial, as one can see from the illustrations and photos. This does not mean that the more modest homes were not comfortable. Curiously, there are pictures of all the properties from the outside but few of the interiors.& & In 1914, Jardine made a trip to India, and at this point the album is tantamount to a photo album, with some other ephemera thrown in, such as a dinner invitation from the Aga Khan. The photos record some of the lifestyle of the Raj just before it entered its twilight years, but they are not necessarily distinguishable from those of other privileged Anglo tourists of the same era. During the war the entries take on a decidedly more somber tone, as Jardine herself volunteered for various organizations, like so many other women of her class and station. There are a few clippings from benefits, a whole page devoted to signatures of patients at an officers&#146; hospital in Devon, a large Red Cross certificate recognizing Constance&#146;s volunteer contributions. Amongst these are several photos and clippings of more or less normal recreational activities &#150; life did go on.& & Following the war, we get a handful of photos of estate houses and staid family photos &#150; Constance was now herself comfortably middle aged. Gone is the hedonism and the artistic panache. Essentially, the album-keeping does not so much stop abruptly as much as it peters out, just as the lifestyle it celebrated also became a thing of the past. & & Constance Jardine (she appears not to have used her first name Annette much) was born in 1876 in East Grinstead, Sussex, England. She married Robert Jardine in 1897, shortly before these albums got under way, and they maintained a home at 69 Cadogan Place in London, which remains a highly desirable address in Belgravia. Robert Jardine passed away in December, 1930. In 1934, Annette married the younger Captain Arthur Granville-Soames, who had divorced his first wife earlier the same year. Granville-Soames was a member of His Majesty&#39;s Coldstream Guards, the father-in-law of Winston Churchill&#39;s youngest daughter, and the owner of Sheffield Park, an important estate that he was to sell in 1954. That marriage did not last; they divorced sometime before 1948, when Captain Granville-Soames married a third time. It would appear Constance did not remarry since in her obituary she had held onto Soames as her surname. Little is known about how Constance lived out the rest of her life. & & Albums maintained by visiting guests, and also organized around the houses experienced, are not unique to these kept by Jardine. But one comes upon such guest albums far, far less often than those kept by the hosts, and we know of no other example of such guest albums with anywhere near the same caliber and scope of Jardine&#39;s three heavy books. As a window on the past, the Jardine albums offer us a different voyeuristic experience from that found in even the most elaborate of host albums. Somehow Jardine&#39;s compilation captures a restless energy and movement of these party weekends.

        Spanish-American War Photograph Album - New York Volunteers

      Various: Photograph Album, 1898. Photographs. Very Good. Photographs. Circa 1898. Photograph album with 22 vernacular photos (all but the cover photograph are approximately 3" x 4") documenting military life in a New York National Guard unit during the Spanish-American War. Although I&#39;m not certain, the photographs appear to be of the 1st Regiment Infantry, New York Volunteers as "NY" patches can be clearly seen on the shoulders of some uniforms and blown up images of some collars show large "1" pins. The 1st NY was the only New York Regiment to deploy overseas during the war. After mustering at Camp Black near Hicksville, its units made the western train trip to San Francisco, where it was temporarily housed at Camp Merritt awaiting transport to Hawaii. It arrived in Honolulu in September and remained there until mustered out of federal service in December. The photograph on the album cover probably is of the album&#39;s creator. Among other photographs are camp scenes (probably Camp Black or Camp Merrit), officer groupings, the unit colors, a review, a mess tent, possibly a medical tent, and a ubiquitous blanket toss scene. There are also two photographs of Eads Bridge, which crosses the Mississippi at St. Louis. There is one photograph that may show soldiers waiting inside the San Francisco Ferry Terminal, which--at the time--was still incomplete and under construction. That photograph is especially interesting as in includes a Buffalo Soldier dressed in a Regular Army khaki uniform standing apart from the group. (Three of four American Army&#39;s black units deployed to the Philippines from San Francisco after first serving in Cuba.) Perhaps this image shows the units crossing paths in San Francisco in 1899.) The photographs and album are in nice shape; one leaf is pulled and edge-worn. Quite scarce.

        Autographed Typed Letter from Susan B. Anthony on the Stationery of the National American Woman Suffrage Association to Helen Pillsbury Cogswell, the daughter of Pillsbury Cogswell. Dated 19 December 1898. Includes the letter&#39;s envelope

      Rochester, NY, 1898. Letter. Near Fine. Letter. One page letter, signed "Susan B. Anthony". Letter and envelope are both in very nice shape. The letter has only some light edge wear, and there is some slight postal soiling to the envelope. In this letter, Anthony informs Cogswell that she has just received "some of the huge volumes of my biography" and notes that she will be dispatching a set to her shortly, "in memory of your dear father, mother and husband, and recognition of your own splendid services to them and to the world." She goes on to note that as they worked together on the book, her biographer, Mrs. Ida Husted Harper, would frequently say, "I do hope Mr. Pillsbury will live to read what I have said about him." Unfortunately, Parker Pillsbury died before the first two volumes of Anthony&#39;s biography were completed. Years before, Pillsbury, Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton had formed what Anthony previously referred to as "the Revolutionary trio" for their long-time and very close association working on the entwined causes of abolition and suffrage which they began as Garrisonians in the 1850s. Later in 1868, bitter and furious with the traditional abolitionists over their refusal to include women&#39;s suffrage in what would become the Fifteenth Amendment-something that Stanton described as "stand[ing] aside and see[ing] &#39;Sambo&#39; walk into the kingdom [of civil rights] first"-the trio began publishing a weekly periodical, Revolution, which forcefully advocated for women&#39;s suffrage as well as addressed a number of related issues including birth control, divorce, prostitution, and abortion (which, probably to the surprise of many today, they regarded as infanticide). Pillsbury remained active in the suffrage movement until his death in 1898 at age 88. Anthony concludes her letter with an invitation to Cogswell for "a whole week&#39;s or month&#39;s visit.

      Macmillan, 1898. 8vo., Tenth Edition, with frontispiece (original tissue guard present), title-vignette, 7 plates, very numerous illustrations and maps (a number full-page) in the text, a folding coloured map and a folding map coloured in outline, top lightly dust-soiled, minimal spotting to fore-edge; green cloth, gilt back, black endpapers, upper hinge paper parted (but binding entirely sound), a remarkably well-preserved, bright, clean, fresh copy.

His well-known appendix on the crania and the languages of man in the archipelago includes a glossary of one hundred and seventeen words in thirty-three languages of the region.
