        Complete Writings (22-volume autographed edition, with limited biography included)

      Houghton, Mifflin and Co 1900 - This is a very good set of the 22-volume set in their original cream cloth bindings. Volume 1 has been signed by the publisher and by Hawthorne's daughter, Rose Hawthorne Lathrop. Additionally, each frontis was signed in pencil by the illustrator, including such big names as Childe Hassam and Howard Pyle. Other illustrators include Jessie Wilcox Smith, Anna Whelan Betts, Alice Stephens, Sarah Stilwell, Arthur Keller, Edmund Garrett, Maud Cowles, Emlen McConnell, Albert Herter, B. West Clinedinst and Ross Turner, F.C. Yohn, Eric Pape, Jules Guerin, Frederick McCormick, Mary Ayer, E.C. Peixtto, Harry Fenn, Frank T. Merrill. The books are in very good condition, with very minor soiling to the covers, iight wear to the spine labels and an owner's bookplate on the inside of each front cover that has left a bit of an imprint on each front end page.

        Writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne : Mosses from an Old Manse (Vols 4 & 5) Tales and Sketches (Vol 16) [Ltd Ed]

      Houghton Mifflin; Boston; 1900; 8vo (8 3/4" X 5 3/4"); 345, 360, 358 pages - VG+/None. First and only autographed editions of this grouping of 3 volumes from Mifflin's 22 volume autographed set limited to 500 numbered sets, this set being number 159. Publishers original smooth white woven cloth with paper label on spine with author's name, title and 'autographed edition' printed in black inside box borders printed in red. Each volume in the set contains a Photogravure frontispiece, vignette title, and additional B&W plates, all on India paper mounted, with the frontispiece in each volume signed by the artist. Both Vols 4 & 5 are signed by Smith, while Vol 16 is signed by FC Yohn with unsigned Smith plate on page 294. Descriptive tissue guards for all illustrations, and a printed limitation page behind the half title of each volume indicating this to be copy #159 of the set.This family authorized set of Hawthorne's was issued by Houghton Mifflin in 1900 in 3 versions - an 'autographed' set limited to 500 copies, a 'large paper' set limited to 500 copies, and an 'Old Manse' smaller sized trade edition. The autographed edition is by far the most desireable because it was signed not only by Hawthorne's daughter Rose Hawthorne Lathrop (in Volume 1), but each of the 22 volumes has their frontispiece hand signed in pencil by the artist. In all, 21 different artist's signatures are to be found in this veritable treasure trove of golden age illustrators and artists that include Childe Hassam, Howard Pyle, Jessie Willcox Smith, Edmund Garrett, Anna Whelan Betts, Sarah Stillwell, Eric Pape, E C Peixotto, Alice Barber Stephens (the only artist with signed frontispieces in 2 volumes), and numerous others. Leatherbound sets of the autographed edition can be found on the internet priced from $3,500 to $12,500, making it financially difficult for the collector of any individual artist to secure a copy of their scarce autograph.The 3 volumes offered here are the first 3 volumes in the Hawthorne set. They have been grouped together because they represent a logical combination that contains the autographed or non-autographed work of a significant group of Howard Pyle students (often referred to as Brandywine artists). The frontispiece to vol 4 is believed to be the only limited edition volume ever signed by Jessie Willcox Smith, as is are the Mary Ayers (vol 5) and F.C. Yohn (vol 16) signatures. In addition, illustrations by other artists including Frank B. Masters, Bertha Rockwell, Marion Peabody, Helen Kibbey, C.S. Chapman and others also appear in these 3 volumes. This set has been so grouped that one need to have to acquire any other of the remaining 19 volumes to have all of Smith's and Yohn's full contribution to the set. While the large paper limited edition is the same size as this set, it must be considered much the less desireable because it lacks the scarce artists' signatures.Volumes 4 and 5 also form a logical grouping since they comprise parts I and 2 of Hawthorne's longer and much appreciated work 'Mosses from an Old Manse'. The frontispiece in vol 4 is boldly signed in pencil by Jessie Willcox Smith, vol 5 is signed by Mary Ayer, and vol 16 is signed by F.C.Yohn. Volume 16 is included here because it contains the one other illustration which Jessie Willcox Smith contributed for this 22 volume work. It should also be noted that for some reason the pages after 354 in volume 5 are missing - whether this occurred at the publisher or they were torn out is not known. While this in no way harms the collectability of the illustrations and autographs, a facsimile of the remaining 6 pages of text will be provided the purchaser if they so desire.Truly a scarce and highly collectible group of Howard Pyle student signatures and illustrations.</p [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE INDEPENDENT Vol. LII Jan-Jun 1900 #2666-2691 Bound Volume

      NY: THE INDEPENDENT, 1900. This is an extremely scarce periodical in any form, and this in 1580 pages is the January through June issues for this New York weekly magazine in the key turn-of-the-century 1900 year bound in cloth spine with marbelled boards. Possibly a library binding as this is ex-lib from the Plainfield Library with only noted stamp being at bottom edge. Boards have wear mainly at the corners which are bumped and rounded and rubbed at the front corners, and with mild rubbing at the rear corners. Light wear to rest of boards, and light wear, with light soiling to thick cloth spine. ... This appears to have been a conservative periodical with articles too numerous too mention but with many covering the Spanish American War, and issues dealing with the seized territories, churches and churchmen (such as Dwight L. Moody), literature, and numerous topics, with many making their debut appearance here. Some of the items are: THE CHICKADEE (Poem), Joel Benton; THE RED INDIAN IMAGINATION, Andrew Lang; THE INJUSTICE TO THE COLORED VOTER, George H. White (only black member of Congress); THE OBJECTION TO THE DOUBLE TURRET, Rear Admiral Philip Hichborn; HAWAIIAN PUBLIC LANDS, Sanford B.

        Two Original Photographs of Violet Oakley's Studio With Autograph Inscriptions on Back by Violet Oakley

      not published ca. 1900, Philadelphia - Offered here are two original photographs, most likely taken by either herself, Jessie Willcox Smith, Elizabeth Shippen Green or Edith Emerson. One, of her close friend and fellow painter Ellen Wetherald Ahrens, and the other of both Violet Oakley and the other of both Violet Oakley and her sister, Hester Oakley. Both have original explanations of the photos written by Violet Oakley on the back in pencil: On verso of Ahrens, "This is Ellen at work in at her corner- When we are not taking photos, she has the window open beside her. The little Oriental seat in front of her made by ourselves and of old pin cusions and a packing box and two little rugs. Isn't it pretty? The back is all padded-". On verso of Violet and Hester: "I at work and Hester sitting talking to me-". Photos are slightly age faded, a few corners and sides with small chips, else very good. Exceedingly scarce private photographs of Violet Oakley's studio with artist friend and sister.

      Um 1900. - Franz von Lenbach (1836 &#150; 1904) war während der Zeit des zweiten deutschen Kaiserreiches (1870 &#150; 1918) einer der renommiertesten und bekanntesten Maler Deutschlands. Berühmt wurde Lenbach vor allem wegen seiner ausdrucksstarken Personenporträts. Hatte er sich zunächst für das Leben der einfachen Menschen (Bauern, Landleute) interessiert, so wandte er sich später, inzwischen selbst ins Großbürgertum aufgestiegen, immer mehr der &#132;besseren" Gesellschaft und den gesellschaftlichen Eliten des Reiches zu. Wer Rang und Namen hatte, ließ sich nunmehr von Lenbach porträtieren: Dazu gehörten Kaiser Wilhelm II, Kaiser Franz Josef I von Österreich-Ungarn, Reichskanzler Otto von Bismarck und Papst Leo XIII. Auch Wilhelm Busch saß Lenbach (um 1875) Modell. Insbesondere mit Bismarck, von dem zahlreiche Porträts entstanden, verband Lenbach eine langwährende freundschaftliche Beziehung. Das heutige Bismarck-Bild (der &#132;Alte vom Sachsenwald") ist nicht zuletzt durch diese Bilder entstanden. Lenbachs klassische Gemälde, vor allem seine meisterhaften Porträts, wirken heute sehr traditionell und strahlen in unveränderter Form Stil und Eleganz aus 12000 Der Leinendruck ist &#150; eventuell von Lenbach selbst bzw. auf seine Veranlassung hin &#150; meisterhaft ausgeführt und lediglich vom Fachmann bei näherer Draufsicht bzw. Betrachtung der (im Rahmen nicht sichtbaren) Leinwandränder vom Original zu unterscheiden. Sowohl Bild als auch Rahmung befinden sich in sehr schönem Zustand und weisen keine nennenswerten Mängel auf. Sehr schönes stimmungsvolles Gemälde, dessen Eleganz und Harmonie sich auf seine Umgebung überträgt. Sehr repräsentativ. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats. Original-Öldruck (Leinendruck). Öl auf Leinwand, Format: 55 x 68 cm (Rahmenmaß: 69 x 81 cm). Signiert: F. Lenbach. Datiert: 1898. Das Bild zeigt eine Dame der Gesellschaft in eleganter Robe, die ein &#150; ebenfalls festlich gekleidetes &#150; Kind auf dem Arm trägt. Es ist möglich, daß es sich hier um eine bekannte Persönlichkeit handelt und das Bild als Auftragsarbeit erstellt wurde. Der Rahmen trägt rückwärtig eine Aufschrift von alter Hand, die das Gemälde als Eigentum des Tiemannhofes (Gutshof bei Herford, 1653 erstmalig erwähnt) ausweist. Ferner ist auf der Rahmung das Datum 7.11.1933 vermerkt; hierbei dürfte es sich aber nicht um das Herstellungsdatum, sondern um das Datum eines Eigentümerwechsels handeln. Der Leinendruck ist vermutlich zeitnah am Original, eventuell gemeinsam mit diesem entstanden. Das Bild befindet sich in einem aufwendig ornamentierten Barockrahmen, bei dem es sich um den Originalrahmen handeln dürfte.

The Miller Brothers Cutlery Company bought the mechanical equipment of their plant and engaged Mr. Bradford as superintendent of the new department. In the manufacture of these delicate articles, Miller Bros. was as successful as with their cutlery." Miller Bros. manufactured pocket cutlery, steel ink erasers and steel pens. A fine and unique item. Very unusual to find a Miller Brothers advertising box filled with the nibs.
