        [MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF ARTHUR L. MORROW, COVERING HIS TRIP AND SOME OF HIS TIME SPENT AS A KLONDIKE GOLD RUSH STAMPEDER AND PROSPECTOR]

      [Various locations in Alaska, including Sitka, Unalaska, and Schieffelin Creek], 1898. Approximately [110]pp. plus various folded clippings stored in the rear pocket. Contemporary leatherette folding diary, with original matching pencil. Minor wear, mostly clean inside. Very good. A brief but important record of travel, life, and work in Alaska during the height of the Klondike Gold Rush. The diary was kept by Arthur L. Morrow of Auburn, Maine, and is signed by him on each side of the first leaf. The initial pages contain names and addresses of contacts and expenses dated Nov. 18, 1900, with occasional notes on the calendar from Jan. 2, 1898. The entries begin in earnest when Morrow leaves Maine for the Klondike on May 11, 1898. What follows are brief but regular details of Morrow's lengthy overland trip through Montreal, Chicago, St. Paul, Dakota, the Rocky Mountains ("it was a grand sight"), the Cascade Mountains ("the grandest scenery of all"), Seattle, and then by boat to Vancouver, arriving in Sitka in late June. Upon landing in Sitka, Morrow writes on June 28: "Have been ashore and there are many curious and interesting sights - the ancient Russian cemitary [sic], the Greek church and Indians. Went fishing this A.M. Caught 9 fine fish." After a few days in and around Sitka, Morrow and his party leave for Dutch Harbor, Unalaska, where they spend a couple of weeks in July, mostly fishing. The group continues to St. Michael, Alaska. Here, Morrow departs with a small boating party up the Yukon River, passing Indian villages, where he observes that they are "making good progress though the river is very crooked, have to go a long way round to get a short distance...stop at Russian mission, see lots of natives. They are very filthy, several lay dying in a tent with pneumonia." Morrow and his group arrive in September at "Sheflin Creek" [Schieffelin] in the Rampart Mountains to begin prospecting. The group sets up winter camp, and busies themselves with making sleds, shooting at bear when they are not busy prospecting on claims. On September 8, Morrow writes: "Go out prospecting all day - do not find any sign of Gold." October 7, he again comments on the lack of success in the Yukon: "Go up a small creek 6 miles have hard days work find no indication of Gold." Towards the end of October, and into early November, Morrow is laid up with an abcess under his arm. By November 4, he is well enough to make the sled trip to his next destination at Bear Creek, and then he heads for the final location mentioned in this diary - Morlock Creek. Before arriving there, Morrow reports on a meeting held in camp on November 21, where the members of his "Association" [read prospecting outfit] "voted to release Henry Burbe from Asso. give him 1/2 claim No. 5 on Bear Creek, 1 claim on Aurora Grande & his share of provisions." The next day, Morrow's final entry reads, "Start for Morlock Creek 20 miles down river." On the terminal pages of the journal, Morrow has scribbled lists, including prices for supplies, some entries that seem to be IOUs, and names of companions including R.O. Howard, H. Ward, Saucire, Talbot, Boule, and Mackenzie. Some ephemeral items stored inside the rear pocket include freight receipts from the Boston & Alaska Transportation Company and Central Wharf shipping lines, a brief supply list, a check stub from a transportation company, and a single page of a letter to Morrow, which he has used the verso of as a supply list, with costs. An interesting Klondike Gold Rush diary from the height of the stampede, covering a vast amount of Alaskan territory in a seven-month span.

        TALES OF UNREST.

      London:: Fisher Unwin,. 1898.. First edition. His first short-story collection. In first-issue binding of dark-green cloth with page top edges gilt and other edges untrimmed (versus plain top edge and other edges rough-trimmed). This copy with the attractive, armorial blind-stamp of "Boot's Book-lover's Library" to bottom front corner of the cover. "Boot's" was a popular members-only lending library of the day. "The extremely simple system of exchange, the absence of irritating rules, and the perfect service given to Members, make this the best Circulating Library in the Kingdom," or so proclaimed their 1903 catalog, humbly entitled, MODERN ENGLISH LITERATURE: A SELECTION OF THE BEST KNOWN WORKS CIRCULATED, WITH WHICH IS EMBODIED A GUIDE TO POPULAR WORKS OF FICTION. Small tears and general shelfwear to spine ends, and bottom front corner with blind-stamp appears to have been used as a coaster at some point. Still, good to about very good. .

        Handgearbeitete Möbel / Deutsche Werkstätten für Handwerkskunst.

      25,5 x 21,5 cm. 229 Seiten (überwiegend fotogr. Tafeln). Orig.-Halbleinenband. *Erste Ausgabe des Musterbuches für die Designmöbel der legendären deutschen Werkstätten in Hellerau. Die Möbelabteilung produzierte unter der Federführung des Designers Richard Riemerschmid sogenannte "Reformmöbel": Alle Möbel wurden von zeitgenössischen Designern konzipiert, die überwiegende Zahl der vorgestellten Möbel sind Entwürfe von Riemerschmid selbst. - Die Firmengründung "Dresdner Werkstätten für Handwerkskunst" erfolgte 1898, bereits 1909 wurde der Grundstein für das Fabrikgebäude im heutigen Dresden-Hellerau mit 350 Arbeitern gelegt. Die Deutschen Werkstätten waren im Zuge der Reformbewegung des Kunstgewerbes in Deutschland der bedeutendste Möbelhersteller Dresdens. Sie gehörten zu den Gründungsmitgliedern des Deutschen Werkbundes. Der Durchbruch gelang mit dem ab 1903 von Riemerschmid entwickelten Konzept der sogenannten "Maschinenmöbel". Dies waren Möbel in ästhetischer wie praktischer Form und Proportion für den modernen Haushalt der Mittelschicht. Sie waren von hoher Qualität bezüglich Material und Fertigung, aber zugleich auch konzipiert für eine effiziente und kombinierbare Produktion mit Maschinen. Das Produkt war eine große Palette Möbel für Wohn- und Schlafzimmer von hoher Qualität und mit modernem Design zu einem bezahlbaren Preis. - Vorliegend der recht seltene erste Katalog bzw. Musterbuch der Möbelabteilung der Werkstätte Hellerau in der ersten Auflage (1910 und 1912 erschienen eine 2. und 3. Auflage). Die Werkstätte Hellerau existiert bis heute als Spezialfirma im hochwertigen Innenausbau. - Frontdeckel etwas fleckig, 2 Seiten mit kleinen Anstreichungen, ansonsten sauber und gut erhalten.
