        A strikingly poignant composite photograph of the Members of the 1899 North Carolina Senate, including the last African American to serve in the state legislature until 1968

      "Silver gelatin photograph, 10"" x 7.5"" on a 13"" x 16"" titled mount, ""SENATE OF NORTH CAROLINA ?" SESSION OF 1899"" (Photographer: C.P. Wharton, Raleigh, N.C.). Light toning and soiling to mount, photograph overall very clean with only a hint of edge wear, else very good condition overall. A fascinating composite photograph featuring, at the extreme lower right corner, the sole African American to serve in the North Carolina Senate (and the last until 1968). Misidentified in the printed identifications on the mount as ""T. A. Fuller, 11th Dist., Warrenton, Warren Co."", Fuller appears as the last Senator in a list that is otherwise alphabetical. Born to freed slaves in 1867 in Franklinton, North Carolina, Fuller attended school, receiving his B.A. degree from Shaw University in 1890, as well as a master's degree from the same institution in 1893. A Baptist preacher and an educator, he was elected to the Senate as a candidate on the ""Fusion"" ticket?"an alliance between the Republicans and Populists who were attempting to break the Democratic monopoly of power. Elected to office against his own stated wishes, he became the first African American to be elected to the North Carolina Senate since Reconstruction. Needless to say, his reception in the all white North Carolina Senate was less than cordial. Not only is he the last person pictured in the present photo, he was the last to take the oath of office, although the Senators were supposed to take it in alphabetical order. Because Senators were supposed to kiss the bible following their taking the oath, they compelled Fuller to go last. Things went downhill from there. Any hope on the part of his constituents that Fuller could affect any real change in North Carolina was soon dashed. Although politically a conservative, Fuller received no committee assignments and was largely ignored by his colleagues. To add insult to injury, the legislature passed a law that year that largely disenfranchised African Americans?"a move that ended Fuller's political career. After his single term in the Senate, Fuller moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where he became a prominent minister and educator."

        Bandanna Ballads [Signed by Howard Weeden and by Joel Chandler Harris] [Gone with the Wind] Including Shadows on the Wall

      New York: Doubleday & McClure Company, 1899. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original cloth (some spots and soiling to the cloth, spine lettering faded, some undulations to the spine cloth, apparent additional pastedown placed on top of the front pastedown -- presumably as a repair to a cracked gutter, page block settled), SIGNED BY HOWARD WEEDEN on the half-title and FURTHER SIGNED BY JOEL CHANDLER HARRIS at his Introduction to the book; a collection of poetry, some of which is in the old Negro dialect, and accompanying pictures by Maria Howard Weeden [who wrote under the name "Howard Weeden"] introduced by the great Joel Chandler Harris who proclaimed Weeden to be the "bright light" of late Nineteenth Century American authors. Weeden, a small, frail, white woman, who was both a Poet and an Artist so nearsighted that she painted with a three-hair brush, depicted former slaves in a dignified and respectful manner that was not typical for the era. Her portrayals were so notable that William Kurtz, the technical director for the adaptation of Margaret Mitchell's "Gone with the Wind" to the screen, borrowed a copy of "Bandanna Ballads" from a contact in Atlanta for use in preparing the movie and, upon returning it, stated that: “This book was used extensively in preparing the costumes of the Negro servants by the Wardrobe Department of the Selznick International Studios, Culver City, Calif., during the filming” of “Gone With the Wind.", thus making the book a much more important work than many realize. Copies singed by Weeden are not common to the market and copies signed by both Weeden and Harris are as scarce as hen's teeth. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY HOWARD WEEDEN AND ALSO SIGNED BY JOEL CHANDLER HARRIS. A QUITE SCARCE TO RARE COPY OF THIS IMPORTANT WORK.

Harris. 8vo; (2), x, 311, (1-blank), (2-ads), 11 full-page illustrations & 2 text figures; neat owner's name at top of flyleaf, bookplate removed from front pastedown; original dark green cloth lettered and decorated in red & black; minor rubbing to tips and spine ends else very good. Susan Elizabeth Blow (1843-1916), kindergarten educator, born in St. Louis, was educated at home except for two years at Miss Haines' School in New York City. She lived for a year and a half in Brazil, where her father was U. S. minister, then traveled in Europe where, in Germany, she encountered the kindergarten work of Fiedrich Froebel. With the encouragement of William T. Harris, superintendent of St. Louis schools and central figure of the philosophical group know as the "St. Louis Movement," Miss Blow studied with a disciple of Froebel's widow. This led to her opening the first public school kindergarten in America (Des Peres School, St. Louis) in 1873. She then founded a training school for kindergarten teachers, also the first of its kind in America. Blow lectured extensively on kindergarten matters, including at Teacher's College Columbia during 1905-1909, and had a high position in the International Kindergarten Union. She wrote five books for the International Education Series. LETTERS TO A MOTHER is one of the best statements of her philosophy of "symbolic education". Prominently mentioned or quoted from are, Rousseau, Pestalozzi, John Dewey, William James, Darwin, and Mary Putnam Jacobi. NAW I, pp. 181-182. The Book of Women's Firsts, p. 57.

      "His signature, ""Very Sincerely L. Frank Baum,"" and dated in his hand, ""Chicago Nov 1899,"" on the front blank endpaper of his groundbreaking book, Father Goose, His Book (Chicago: Geo. M. Hill Co. Publishers, 1899) unpaginated, quarto, bound in titled, illustrated boards. First edition, second printing (October 1899). With illustrations by W. W. Denslow. Boards rubbed, spine repaired with cloth backing, light soiling to interior pages. Offered together with L. Frank Baum, Father Goose, His Book (Chicago: Geo. M. Hill Co., 1899) unpaginated, quarto, bound in titled and illustrated boards. First edition, first printing. With illustrations by W. W. Denslow. Boards rubbed and cracked at edges, spine reinforced, some folds to several pages with some marginal tears. When Baum and Denslow conceived this modern American Mother Goose, no firm was interested in issuing it. The pair decided to publish it themselves and took it to a big jobber, George M. Hill. Hill was so impressed with the mock-up that he offered to publish the book if Baum and Denslow paid all of the printing costs. To save on typesetting, they hired the artist Ralph Fletcher Seymour to hand-letter the text and they gave him an acknowledgement on the final page. Father Goose, His Book proved to be the best selling children's book of the year and went through five printings before Christmas. Its unexpected success inspired Baum and Denslow to follow it up with The Wizard of Oz."

        True Blue Stirring Stories of Naval Academy Life: Clif Faraday in Command or the Fight of His Life

      (New York): (Street & Smith). 1899. First. First edition. Pages browned, with a few short edge tears, else fine in very good pictorial wrappers with some splitting and chipping around the staples. Most likely written by Sinclair while at Columbia University, when he was struggling to get by as an author of dime novels and pulp fiction; this novelette was no. 39 in the "True Blue Stirring Stories of Naval Academy Life" series. Although not listed by Gottesman, possibly one of the approximately 100 pseudonymous dime novels Sinclair wrote in this period while working his way through graduate school (the Fitch pseudonym was shared with Henry Harrison Lewis and Weldon J. Cobb, writing for the same series, so exact authorship is difficult to attribute). Sinclair did not publish under his own name until his 1901 novel Springtime and Harvest. .

        The River War, An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1899. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is the first edition, first printing, first state of Churchill's second published work. Published in two massive volumes in 1899, the first edition of this book is compelling in every respect. First, of course, is the inherent merit of the work itself. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. Mohammed Ahmed was a messianic Islamic leader in central and northern Sudan in the final decades of the 19th century. In 1883 the Mahdists overwhelmed the Egyptian army of British commander William Hicks, and Great Britain ordered the withdrawal of all Egyptian troops and officials from the Sudan. In 1885, General Gordon famously lost his life in a doomed defense of the capitol, Khartoum, where he had been sent to lead evacuation of Egyptian forces. Though the Mahdi died in 1895, his theocracy continued until 1898, when General Kitchener reoccupied the Sudan. With Kitchener was a very young Winston Churchill, who would participate in the battle of Omdurman in September 1898, where the Mahdist forces were decisively defeated. In this book about the British campaign in the Sudan, Churchill - a young officer in a colonial British army - is unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of Imperial cynicism and cruelty. This work offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. Here is a chief architect of the Second World War involved in what has been called the last "genuine" cavalry charge of the British army. In addition to being a compelling piece of writing, the first edition of The River War is also beautiful, rare, and bibliographically important. Aesthetically it is lavish and striking; the large, weighty volumes are beautifully decorated with gilt representations of the Mahdi's tomb on the spines and a gunboat on the front covers. Each of the two large volumes is printed on heavy paper with a profusion of illustrations, maps, and plans. From a collector's standpoint it is scarce. There were only 2,000 copies of this beautiful edition, first printing. Moreover, this is one of the few Churchill books for which there was no concurrent U.S. first edition. Bibliographically it is notable that the first edition is the only unabridged edition to this day. Here is a first edition, first printing, first state set. First state is confirmed by the typographical error on p.459 of Volume II, omitting the single quotation mark following 'LONDON GAZETTE. (See: Cohen, Vol. I, A2.1.a&b, pages 32-42.) Condition is very good overall, the noteworthy feature of this set being unusually clean and complete contents. The contents remain exceptionally bright for the edition. We find no previous ownership marks and a mere hint of spotting is barely discernible, appearing entirely confined to the otherwise clean fore edges. All of the extensive illustrations, maps, and plans are intact, including the frontispieces and tissue guards. This is not a "married" set; both the contents and bindings of both volumes are an exact match in condition. What leads us to grade this set as only "good plus" is the fact that both volumes have been fitted with new endpapers (white, replacing the original black) and the original bindings, though now tight, do show scuffing and wear with some dulling of the spines.

        Letters to a Mother on the Philosophy of Froebel

      New York: D. Appleton and Company. 1899. First Edition. No. 45 in the International Education Series edited by W. T. Harris. 8vo; (2), x, 311, (1-blank), (2-ads), 11 full-page illustrations & 2 text figures; neat owner's name at top of flyleaf, bookplate removed from front pastedown; original dark green cloth lettered and decorated in red & black; minor rubbing to tips and spine ends else very good. Susan Elizabeth Blow (1843-1916), kindergarten educator, born in St. Louis, was educated at home except for two years at Miss Haines' School in New York City. She lived for a year and a half in Brazil, where her father was U. S. minister, then traveled in Europe where, in Germany, she encountered the kindergarten work of Fiedrich Froebel. With the encouragement of William T. Harris, superintendent of St. Louis schools and central figure of the philosophical group know as the "St. Louis Movement," Miss Blow studied with a disciple of Froebel's widow. This led to her opening the first public school kindergarten in America (Des Peres School, St. Louis) in 1873. She then founded a training school for kindergarten teachers, also the first of its kind in America. Blow lectured extensively on kindergarten matters, including at Teacher's College Columbia during 1905-1909, and had a high position in the International Kindergarten Union. She wrote five books for the International Education Series. LETTERS TO A MOTHER is one of the best statements of her philosophy of "symbolic education". Prominently mentioned or quoted from are, Rousseau, Pestalozzi, John Dewey, William James, Darwin, and Mary Putnam Jacobi. NAW I, pp. 181-182. The Book of Women's Firsts, p. 57. Timelines of American Women's History, p. 177.
