        Photograph Album Featuring Maiden Voyage, Escorting Kaiser Wilhelm II to the Orient, with Rare Views of Vladivostok in Russia, Hong Kong and Amoy, During the Boxer Rebellion.

      Russia, China, Japan, Turkey, Singapore: 1898-1905 Album of photographs compiled by a German officer who served on SMS Hertha, during her maiden voyage to escort Kaiser Wilhelm II and his royal yacht Hohenzollern II to Constantinople and the Levant, and its subsequent appointments with the East Asia Squadron, featuring a rare photograph of the emperor, early views of Vladivostok, and photographs of China dating to the Boxer Rebellion. Contains 68 gelatin silver print photographs mounted onto brown cardstock leaves, a scant few with manuscript captions to verso visible in upper margins. Two photographs are hand coloured. Oblong 8vo. string-tied album measuring approximately 41,5 x 29,5 cm, brown cloth boards, tissue guards. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 6,5 x 10 cm, and the largest 23 x 17 cm. Wear to boards, mild fading to some images, otherwise in Very Good Condition. SMS Hertha was a protected cruiser of the Victoria Louise class launched in 1897. From the 1890s the German Imperial Navy, supported by Kaiser Wilhelm II, was intent on building a cruiser fleet, some armoured and some unprotected. SMS Hertha was the second in the Victoria-Louise Class. Her inaugural voyage was as the escort vessel to Kaiser Wilhelm II and his royal yacht Hohenzollern II. She subsequently served in the East Asia Squadron, and during the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, along with SMS Hansa, SMS Iltis and SMS Gefion, participated in the bombardment of the Taku Forts. Her sailors then took part in the successful storming of the forts. During the First World War she saw limited active service before being used as a floating barracks. SMS Hertha was scrapped in 1920. Highlights from a momentous voyage to the Far East, of German and Russian interest, are visually recorded with firsthand snapshot views, featuring a rare photograph of German Kaiser Wilhelm II taken onboard his royal yacht Hohenzollern II, equally scarce pre-revolutionary views of Vladivostok in Russia, and scenes in Hong Kong during to the Boxer Rebellion. On July 23, 1898 SMS Hertha was put into service for the first time. On this day, the ship's test drives began. Considerable deficiencies were found in the boiler system, creating over-heating and gas smoke. Despite the obvious shortcomings, the Hertha, together with the Little Cruiser Hela, was assigned to serve as an escort for the Kaiserwaracht Hohenzollern II, which was to bring the imperial couple into the Orient. The Hertha left Kiel on September 18, 1898 and arrived at Venice on the 4th of October. The album begins, as does the service of HMS Hertha, with scenes of the vessel being tested at sea, followed by two exceptionally scarce photographs taken on board SMY Hohenzollern II, the private yacht of William II, showing the German Emperor as he embarks, together with his mother Empress Dowager Victoria, and his wife Augusta Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein. Select crew men of the HMS Hertha are also shown on a tour of the engine room of Hohenzollern II. Other views show the ship at sea, taken by an officer of HMS Hertha which was assigned as the emperor's escort. [SMY Hohenzollern II was the Imperial Yacht and aviso from 1893 to July 1914, During this period, Emperor Wilhelm II spent over four years on board. Also contemporary to the voyages of the Hertha seen in this volume, though not illustrated herein, on 24 July 1905, onboard SMY Hohenzollern II, Csar Nicholas II held secret discussions with Wilhelm II which resulted in their signing of the Treaty of Björkö onboard the Csar's vessel. On 18 June 1909, again Wilhelm II received his cousin Nicholas II Czar of Russia, together with his wife Alexandra Feodorovna (Alix of Hesse) Empress of Russia, onboard his royal yacht SMY Hohenzollern II, at Bjorko in Sweden.] From Venice the ships cruised together to Constantinople, Haifa, Jaffa, Port Said and Beirut, where SMS Hertha was released on 11 November from her escort duty. Special ceremonies and an enthusiastic welcome to Wilhelm II and German Empress Augusta Victoria took place upon their arrival at Jerusalem to institute the Jerusalem Commemorative Cross. Wilhelm II and German Empress Augusta Victoria entered Jerusalem on October 29, 1898 through two ceremonial arches, erected for that occasion, one as a gift of the Ottoman Empire and second of the local Jewish community. A rare photograph shows the site, with the German marines of SMS Hertha standing near the arch topped with flags, followed by a select few views from a tour of the area, including the Garden of Gethsemane, and Beirut. [The emperor made a speech at the ceremony of dedication of the church on October 31st, and during his seven-day visit to the Holy Land (October 25-31, 1898) Moreover, the Jerusalem Cross decoration was personally awarded by the Emperor to his entourage on the evening of October 29 after return to the parlor tent from an inspection visit. Wilhelm II, among other things, donated a large sum of money for construction of new complex for Bikur Holim Hospital and laid the cornerstone for Auguste-Viktoria-Hospital on Mount Scopus that would later become hospital, hospice and Ascension church (Himmelfahrtkirche). No longer fit for a long sea voyage, before returning to Germany, SMS Hertha made her way Genoa for repairs to her boiler systems, collapsed chimneys, damaged mooring and boat davits. Upon completion, at the end of March 1899, and significantly modified, SMS Hertha was re-classified as a large cruiser, was appointed for service in the East Asia Squadron in April 1899. Fascinating images included in the album, from China, show indigenous customs as well as interactions with the foreigners only weeks before, and also during, the Boxer Rebellion. These include views of Hong Kong, Amoy [Xiamen], and Tsingtao [Qingdao]. Vessel and crew reached Singapore on the 21st of May, and arrived at the East Asian Station at Tsingtao on June 8th. She replaced a frigate to become temporary flagship of Rear Admiral Ernst Fritze. In the months to follow, the Hertha and other German ships made several journeys to the northern station, and at Xiamen on 6 November, she was made flagship of a new squadron. On 17 February 1900 SMS Hertha came under the command of Vice-Admiral Felix Bendemann, placed his flag on Hertha. German squadron leaders made an initial visit to the Japanese emperor Mutsuhito at the beginning of April, then returned to China on 23 April 1899 to join the remaining squadron in Tsingtao for sea drills. Hertha cruised the Yangtze River to Hankow for a planned visit of Vice-Admiral Bendemann and the German Ambassador in Beijing, Freiherr Clemens von Ketteler, to Chinese imperial court. With the first announcement of serious unrest between Peking and Tientsin on 29 May, the meeting was cancelled. [As part of the East Asia Squadron during the Boxer Rebellion, the ship's crew made a noteworthy contribution in the Battle of the Taku Forts. In June 1900, Hertha, along with Hansa, Gefion, and Irene landed detachments of Seebataillone (marines) to seize the Taku Forts. The Landkorpps of the Hertha alone numbered 4 officers and 120 men under the command of Captain Guido von Usedom, who also commanded the entire German squad. The marines joined detachments sent from warships of several other countries. A total of around 450 German troops were contributed to the multi-national force, which totaled around 2,200 officers and men. During the attack on the Taku forts, Hertha's commanding officer was shot and killed. In addition, the landing of additional troops was necessary in order to break into the Tientsin which was defended by over 800 men. This was accomplished on June 23rd, with the Hertha, a total of 4 under-officers and 69 men being under the command of Captain Lieutenant-Colonel Adolf von Trotha. In September, Hertha carried Alfred von Waldersee to Shanghai, arriving on the 21st, where he took command of the international forces suppressing the rebellion. On 17 August 1900, the Hertha was replaced by Prince Bismarck as a squadron flagship. The Hertha, after returning its land corps, went to several Central China ports and finally had to take General Tang Marshal Alfred von Waldersee to Tanggu, to take command of the German troops in China. During the rest of the year the Hertha was mostly in front of Tanggu, but on October 1st was involved in the lowlands of Shoheikwan and visited Yantai and Tsingtao. After the beginning of October there was no further martial use of the cruiser.] The years 1901-1902 brought further operations along the Chinese coast, as well as two diplomatic voyages to Japan, on one occasion bringing a German delegate to Nagasaki and then Kobe where he would visit the Japanese Emperor. The vessel was for a time in a shipyard at Tsingtau, and also at Yokosuka. Over the course of the two years, the cruiser had been to several ports in the Philippines, Indonesia and Singapore. At the beginning of 1903, Hertha was subjected to an annual overhaul in Nagasaki and then spent four months in Tsingtau. In the second half of the year the ship visited several Russian, Korean and Japanese ports. And, May in 1904, she was in Tientsin, from where the Emperor Prince Adalbert, who was on board, traveled to Beijing to an audience at the Imperial Court. The present album contains uncommon snapshot photographs captured by the marine during these voyages, firstly at Karimun island in Indonesia, then at Singapore, and at Hakodate in Japan. Additionally, there are four (4) photographs taken in Vladivostok, Russia, very scarce and early views taken in 1903 which pre-date both the Russo-Japanese War and the Russian Revolution. These include two harbour views and two street scenes, the latter showing log buildings with wooden sidewalks raised above dirt streets, and guarded by Russian sentries equipped with very long bayonets. An archway bears a Russian sign which may reveal the specific whereabouts to one who can read it. [Owing to territorial hostilities with the Chinese since 1868, an elaborate system of fortifications was erected in and around Vladivostok between the 1870s and 1890s.] Hertha was ordered to return to Germany after five years in East Asia, and left the station on 31 December 1904. On the voyage home, the ship visited Dar es Salam in German East Africa, and again met the Hohenzollern II in the Mediterranean from 5-8 April 1905, only 3 months before Wilhelm II and Nicholas II would devise and sign the The Treaty of Björkö. On 12 May the cruiser was finally taken out of service at Kiel. Another port-of-call was Constantinople [Istanbul], which is shown in lovely seaport views, one of which showcases the Ortaköy Mosque (officially the Büyük Mecidiye Camii) situated on the Bosphorus Strait. Wilhelm II or William II (German: Friedrich Wilhelm Viktor Albert von Preußen, English: Frederick William Victor Albert of Prussia; 27 January 1859 - 4 June 1941) was the last German Emperor (Kaiser) and King of Prussia, ruling the German Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia from 15 June 1888 to 9 November 1918. He was the eldest grandchild of the British Queen Victoria and related to many monarchs and princes of Europe. Wilhelm and his first wife, Princess Augusta Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein (1858-1921), were married on 27 February 1881. SMS Hertha: [Wikipedia] Am 23. Juli 1898 wurde die Hertha erstmals in Dienst gestellt. An diesem Tag begannen die Probefahrten des Schiffes. Dabei wurde die übliche Meilenfahrt von Oskar Messter mit einer von ihm entwickelten Kamera aufgezeichnet. Während der Probefahrten zeigten sich erhebliche Mängel der Kesselanlage. Die eingebauten Wasserrohrkessel vom System Belleville wiesen neben anderen Schwächen eine zu kurze Flammführung zwischen den Rohren auf, wodurch Rauchfänge und Schornsteine aufgrund der noch sehr heißen Rauchgase überhitzten und allmählich in sich zusammensackten. Trotz der offenkundigen Mängel wurde die Hertha gemeinsam mit dem Kleinen Kreuzer Hela als Begleitschiff für die Kaiseryacht Hohenzollern II bestimmt, die das Kaiserpaar in den Orient bringen sollte. Die Hertha verließ am 18. September 1898 Kiel und traf, nachdem in Gibraltar Zwischenstation gemacht worden war, am 4. Oktober in Venedig ein, wo sich bereits die beiden anderen Schiffe aufhielten. Die folgende Rundreise führte nach Konstantinopel, Haifa, Jaffa, Port Said und Beirut, wo die Hertha am 11. November wieder aus dem Verband entlassen wurde. Anschließend lief das Schiff nach Kreta. Bereits wenige Tage später musste die Hertha jedoch Genua anlaufen, um dort überholt zu werden. Die aufgrund der mangelhaften Kesselanlage auftretende ständige Überhitzung der Schornsteine hatte zu einem starken Zusammensacken ebendieser geführt, so dass sie mit Bordmitteln abgestützt werden mussten, eine Heimreise jedoch nicht mehr zu verantworten war. Die in Genua ansässige Ansaldo-Werft wurde damit beauftragt, die Konstruktionsmängel und die entstandenen Schäden zu beheben. In der Nacht vom 26. auf den 27. November erlitt der Kreuzer noch vor dem Eindocken weitere Beschädigungen, als sich während eines Orkans Teile der Vertäuung lösten und das Schiff mit einem Dampfer kollidierte, wobei unter anderem Bootsdavits abgerissen wurden. Die Reparaturen zogen sich schließlich bis Ende März 1899 hin. Dienst im Ostasiengeschwader: Noch während die Hertha in Genua an der Werft lag, erhielt der Kreuzer, inzwischen neu als Großer Kreuzer klassifiziert, den Befehl zur Verlegung nach Ostasien. Das Schiff sollte das dortige Kreuzergeschwader verstärken. Diese Reise konnte am 14. April 1899 angetreten werden. Über mehrere Zwischenhäfen erreichte die Hertha am 21. Mai Singapur und damit das Gebiet der Ostasiatischen Station, am 8. Juni schließlich den neuen Liegehafen Tsingtau. Der Kreuzer löste dort die alte Panzerfregatte Kaiser ab und wurde vorübergehend Flaggschiff des Zweiten Admirals des Geschwaders, Konteradmiral Ernst Fritze. In den folgenden Monaten unternahm die Hertha, zeitweise von weiteren deutschen Schiffen begleitet, einige Reisen durch das nördliche Stationsgebiet und traf schließlich am 4. November in Xiamen ein, wo ein Treffen mit ihrem Schwesterschiff Hansa und dem Geschwaderflaggschiff Deutschland stattfand. Zwei Tage später wechselte der Zweite Admiral auf die Hansa, da die Hertha als neues Geschwaderflaggschiff vorgesehen war. Zuvor ging das Schiff jedoch für drei Monate nach Hongkong an die Werft, während Deutschland mit dem bisherigen Geschwaderchef, Prinz Heinrich von Preußen, die Heimreise antrat. Am 17. Februar 1900 setzte sein Nachfolger, Vizeadmiral Felix Bendemann, seine Flagge auf der Hertha. Das Kreuzergeschwader bestand zu diesem Zeitpunkt neben der Hertha und der Hansa aus der Kaiserin Augusta sowie den Kleinen Kreuzern Gefion und Irene, zusätzlich waren ihm die beiden Kanonenboote Iltis und Jaguar unterstellt. Nachdem der Geschwaderchef Anfang April seinen Antrittsbesuch beim japanischen Kaiser Mutsuhito gemacht hatte, traf sich die Hertha am 23. April mit den übrigen Kreuzern des Geschwaders in Tsingtau, um in den folgenden Tagen Verbandsübungen durchzuführen. Anschließend führten sie Reisen durch das Stationsgebiet durch, wobei die Hertha gemeinsam mit der Gefion den Jangtse bis Hankau befuhr. Anfang Juni sollte der Große Kreuzer vor Tanggu ankern, da Vizeadmiral Bendemann gemeinsam mit dem deutschen Abgesandten in Peking, Freiherr Clemens von Ketteler, einen Besuch am chinesischen Kaiserhof plante. Zu diesem kam es jedoch nicht mehr, da am 29. Mai die ersten Nachrichten von schweren Unruhen zwischen Peking und Tientsin eintrafen. Vorsorglich baten verschiedene Gesandtschaften um die Verstärkung ihrer Schutzwachen und um die Vorbereitung einer etwaigen Evakuierung an die Küste. Freiherr von Ketteler forderte darüber hinaus die Entsendung von Kriegsschiffen nach Tanggu an. Entsprechend traf die Iltis am 31. Mai vorzeitig dort ein und stellte am 4. Juni zwei Offiziere und 30 Mann zum Schutz der deutschen Niederlassung in Tientsin ab. Die anderen Schiffe des Geschwaders, mit Ausnahme der als Wachtschiff in Tsingtau zurückbleibenden Irene, wurden vom Geschwaderchef ebenfalls nach Tanggu beordert, wo die Hertha am 8. Juni eintraf. Die Entwicklung im Pekinger Gesandtschaftsviertel, wohin inzwischen über 3.000 Menschen geflüchtet waren und das sowohl von Boxern als auch von regulären chinesischen Truppen angegriffen wurde, veranlasste den britischen Befehlshaber, Admiral Edward Hobart Seymour, einen Teil der Besatzungen seiner Schiffe einzusetzen, um den bedrohten Gesandtschaften zu Hilfe zu kommen. Seymour bat die Befehlshaber der anderen anwesenden Kriegsschiffe, seinem Beispiel zu folgen. So kam eine insgesamt 2.129 Mann starke internationale Truppe zusammen, an der die deutschen Schiffe mit 20 Offizieren, zwei Ärzten und 487 Mann beteiligt waren. Das Landungskorps der Hertha umfasste vier Offiziere und 120 Mannschaften unter Führung von Kapitän zur See Guido von Usedom, der auch den Befehl über das gesamte deutsche Aufgebot innehatte. Am 10. Juni verließ die Truppe unter dem Befehl von Admiral Seymour Tonggu in Richtung Peking, erreichte ihr Ziel jedoch nicht. Bereits am 12. Juni musste die Unternehmung abgebrochen werden, da die Bahnlinie nach Peking durch die Chinesen gesprengt worden war und auch der Nachschub bedroht wurde. Am 19. Juni schließlich trat der Verband den Rückmarsch an. Während eines Rückzuggefechts erhielt von Usedom den bekannt gewordenen Befehl The Germans to the front!, woraufhin die deutschen Soldaten die vorderste Kampflinie übernahmen. Im Verlauf desselben Gefechts wurde der spätere Befehlshaber der Grand Fleet in der Skagerrakschlacht, John Jellicoe, verwundet und von Usedom nahm dessen Stellung ein. Das Landungskorps der Hertha verlor während des Vorstoßes insgesamt vier Matrosen, drei von ihnen erlagen nach mehreren Tagen ihren erlittenen Verletzungen. Unterdessen organisierte Vizeadmiral Bendemann eine weitere internationale Truppe, die unter dem Befehl des Kommandanten der Hansa, Kapitän zur See Hugo von Pohl stand und mit Unterstützung mehrerer Kanonenboote, darunter die Iltis, am 17. Juni die Taku-Forts einnahm. Dies war nötig, um den Nachschub für die Truppe Seymours zu sichern. Außerdem wurde die Anlandung weiterer Truppen nötig, um in das von insgesamt 859 Mann verteidigte Tientsin durchbrechen zu können. Dies gelang am 23. Juni, wobei von der Hertha insgesamt vier Unteroffiziere und 69 Mannschaften unter dem Befehl von Kapitänleutnant Adolf von Trotha eingesetzt wurden. Die Entsetzungstruppen konnten sich mit der Truppe Admiral Seymours vereinigen und bis zum 18. Juli den letzten Widerstand in Tientsin brechen. An diesem Tag wurden die deutschen Landungsverbände bis auf 300 Mann zurückgezogen und wieder an Bord ihrer Schiffe gebracht. Das Scheitern des Vorstoßes von Admiral Seymour hatte die Entsendung stärkerer britischer, russischer, US-amerikanischer, japanischer, französischer und deutscher Truppen zur Folge. Die deutschen Expeditionstruppen wurden dem Chef des Ostasiengeschwaders unterstellt, zusätzlich die 1. Division des I. Geschwaders, bestehend aus den Schiffen der Brandenburg-Klasse, sowie der neue Panzerkreuzer Fürst Bismarck nach China in Marsch gesetzt. Die deutschen Einheiten erreichten China jedoch viel zu spät, da bereits am 4. August ein ca. 20.000 Mann starker internationaler Verband nach Peking aufbrach und die Stadt am 14. August erreichte. Zu diesem gehörte das 195 Mann starke Landungskorps der Hansa. Aufgrund des für Bendemann überraschenden schnellen Vormarsches nach Peking wurden den internationalen Truppen zusätzlich weitere 200 Mann der Hansa sowie 150 Mann der Hertha unter dem Kommando von Kapitän zur See von Pohl nachgesandt, welche Peking am 18. August und damit mit vier Tagen Verspätung erreichten. Die Landungskorps wurden am 5. September durch aus Deutschland eingetroffene Truppen abgelöst und kehrten auf ihre Schiffe zurück. Am 17. August 1900 wurde die Hertha von der Fürst Bismarck als Geschwaderflaggschiff abgelöst. Der Panzerkreuzer behielt diese Funktion bis 1909. Die Hertha lief nach Rückkehr ihres Landungskorps mehrere mittelchinesische Häfen an und hatte schließlich Generalfeldmarschall Alfred von Waldersee, der fortan den Oberbefehl über die deutschen Truppen in China übernahm, nach Tanggu zu bringen. Kapitän zur See von Usedom wurde aufgrund seiner Erfahrung zum Stabschef von Waldersees, sodass der Erste Offizier, Kapitänleutnant Hecht, bis Ende Oktober das Kommando über den Kreuzer übernahm. Die restliche Zeit des Jahres lag die Hertha zumeist vor Tanggu auf Reede, war jedoch am 1. Oktober an der Niederkämpfung von Küstenforts nahe Schanheikwan beteiligt und besuchte Yantai und Tsingtau. Nach Anfang Oktober erfolgte kein weiterer kriegerischer Einsatz des Kreuzers. Die Hertha hatte im gesamten Einsatz während des Boxeraufstands sieben Tote zu beklagen. Weiterer Einsatz in Ostasien Das Jahr 1901 brachte zunächst in seiner ersten Hälfte weitere Einsätze entlang der chinesischen Küste. Vom 8. bis zum 16. Juni brachte die Hertha Generalfeldmarschall von Waldersee nach Kobe zu einem Besuch des japanischen Kaisers und anschließend nach Nagasaki, von wo aus der Graf die Heimreise antrat. Es folgte eine längere Werftliegezeit in Tsingtau und anschließend eine weitere Japanreise. Vom 21. Oktober 1901 bis zum 19. Februar 1902 wurde der Kreuzer erneut Geschwaderflaggschiff, da die Fürst Bismarck in der Werft lag. Vom 25. März bis zum 5. Mai 1902 wurde die Hertha in Yokosuka einer Grundreparatur unterzogen, um anschließend für längere Zeit in Tsingtau zu verweilen. Nachdem das Schiff erneut japanische Häfen besucht hatte, geriet es am 9. September östlich von Taiwan in einen Taifun, der einen erheblichen Wassereinbruch an Bord verursachte. In der Folgezeit lief der Kreuzer im Rahmen der Repräsentationsaufgaben des Ostasiengeschwaders verschiedene Häfen auf den Philippinen und in Indonesien sowie Singapur an. Anfang 1903 wurde die Hertha in Nagasaki der Jahresüberholung unterzogen und hielt sich anschließend vier Monate in Tsingtau auf. In der zweiten Jahreshälfte besuchte das Schiff mehrere russische, koreanische und japanische Häfen. Im Folgejahr unternahm die Hertha neben dem üblichen Stationsdienst gemeinsam mit der Fürst Bismarck eine Fahrt auf dem Jangtse bis nach Wuhan. Im Mai lag sie in Tientsin, von wo der an Bord dienstleistende Kaisersohn Prinz Adalbert nach Peking zu einer Audienz am Kaiserhof reiste.[6] Im Laufe des Jahres zeigte sich die Notwendigkeit einer Grundüberholung. Zu diesem Zweck wurde die Hertha nach fünf Jahren in Ostasien nach Deutschland zurück befohlen und verließ am 31. Dezember 1904 das Stationsgebiet. Auf der Heimreise besuchte das Schiff unter anderem Daressalam in Deutsch-Ostafrika und traf am 5. April 1905 für drei Tage mit der Hohenzollern II im Mittelmeer zusammen. Am 12. Mai wurde der Kreuzer schließlich in Kiel außer Dienst gestellt..

        Black Beauty- His Grooms and Companions-

      Boston, Lothrop Publishing Company, 1898-1890 Black Beauty is an 1877 novel by English author Anna Sewell. It was composed in the last years of her life, during which she remained in her house as an invalid. The novel became an immediate best-seller, with Sewell dying just five months after its publication, but having lived long enough to see her only novel become a success. With fifty million copies sold, Black Beauty is one of the best-selling books of all time. While forthrightly teaching animal welfare, it also teaches how to treat people with kindness, sympathy, and respect. Throughout, Sewell rails - in a gentle, 19th-century way - against animal maltreatment. Young readers will follow Black Beauty's fortunes, good and bad, with gentle masters as well as cruel. Children can easily make the leap from horse-human relationships to human-human relationships, and begin to understand how their own consideration of others may be a benefit to all.Green clot, embossed with horse and rider on front, horse is black, female rider in gold, gold lettering for title and writing on spine. this is a top rate copy, colors are bright, no fading,no marking, solid, no bumped corners. Very slight foxing to free end papers text is bright and clear. Neatly written on front, free end pape, Rena F Hoyt. Jan. 14, 1898. Has all the criteria for the american Humane Society Edition, instructions on how to humanly euthanize animal humanly, and 15 pages at the end of book to eplain and encourage people to join and participate in this newly formed organization to protect animals.

        Autograph letter signed ("Frank Wedekind"). Leipzig, [1898].

      1898. 8vo. 4 pp. on folded double leaf. Wedekind, cabaret artist and groundbreaking dramatist, writes to his theatrical colleague Otto Eisenschitz about his peripatetic life-circumstances, the Leipzig premiere of his new play "Erdgeist" ("ich weiß noch nicht, ob ich es als einen Erfolg betrachten kann"), and his hopes that his company, the Ibsen-Theater, might return to Vienna for a guest engagement. Wedekind discusses his brother, then in Paris, and recalls fondly times spent together in Berlin. - Folded for mailing; small tear at one fold and one corner slightly rumpled.

        Battle Hymn of the Republic Words by Julia Ward Howe Music by Jules Jordan&#11;TOGETHER WITH:&#11;Hazard, Caroline and Jules Jordan. Great Western Land A National Hymn Words by Caroline Hazard Music by Jules Jordan. Providence, R.I.: E. G. Billings, 1894

      Providence, R.I.: E. G. Billings, 1898. Sheet music for Howe's poem set to music especially composed for it by Jules Jordan &#11;and&#11;Sheet music for Hazard's poem set to music especially composed for it by Jules Jordan. &#11;Inscribed by the composer in pencil on the front cover of BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC, "Miss Caroline Hazard / from Jules Jordan"&#11;Both self wrappers, printed in black; page size: 10-3/4 inches x 6-7/8 inches; the Howe is 8pp; the Hazard 4pp; each very good with only a bit of dustiness and age toning. Extremely rare, with Brown University holding the only copies cited in RLIN / OCLC of both pieces of sheet music and the Providence Cooperative Library holding only the Stowe "Uncle Tom's Cabin" song. &#11; Jules Jordan (1850-1927), the composer of the two songs offered here, was a well-known singer, composer and music director and teacher. He debuted the title role in Berlioz' "Damnation of Faust" in the U.S., served as conductor for over forty years of the Arion Club, the most important musical society of its time in Providence, R.I. He composed one opera that was performed more than once in the 19th century, "Rip Van Winkle" to very good notices. He composed a number of one-act pieces, usually on American themes, and a number were performed by the Boston Festival Orchestra. &#11;Jordan met Caroline Hazard (1856-1945), the fifth president of Wellesley College, early on in his singing career (ca. 1875) when he sang at the Grace Church in Providence. Mrs. Rowland Hazard, mother of Caroline, introduced her son and daughter Caroline and arranged for both to study singing with Jordan. A few years later Caroline and her brother organized the Narragansett Choral Society, hoping Jordan would be the director. He was too busy at that time, but several years later was successfully prevailed upon by Miss Hazard. Their friendship and association lasted many years. Hazard was also a member of the Arion Society for the years Jordan was director. &#11; Both Caroline Hazard and Jules Jordan were poets, but Jordan's role was usually that of composer and orchestrator in his collaborations. Caroline Hazard&#11;published her first book, NARRAGANSETT BALLADS, in 1894. She was appointed President of Wellesley College in 1899. Both these songs are of a patriotic nature, and it should be noted that a 1903 concert of patriotic songs by Jordan was held on July 3, 1903 in Sayles Hall at Brown University and that "Western Land" was performed (program for concert at Brown University). While the music is not what is associated with the "Battle Hymn" it is suited to the verse and has a pleasant tune. Jules Jordan notes in his memoirs an abundance of friends, so the appearance of inscribed copies of his composed songs should be more plentiful than they are.A piece inscribed to one of his collaborators, who was a friend and student, and an important person in the history of education is most desirable. Jordan, Jules. THE HAPPENINGS OF A MUSICAL LIFE (1922). NAW II, pp. 169-170.
