"James Macdonald (1850-1920) was born in Scotland and trained as a bookbinder. In 1873 he came to the United States and worked with William Matthews, one of America's pre-eminent binders. He left Matthews when he had saved enough money to start his own binding business. The Macdonald bindery, established in 1880, soon became one of the most sought-after binderies in this country. In an interview with the New York Herald in November 1910, James Macdonald acknowledged that hand- binding in the industrial age was a dying art, ' the world is moving away from the art of the book lover. The world is swifter now, but it is not so thorough in many things as it once was. The average man has become used to the product of the machine. Today he knows no other standard. He has lost his touch for half-tones - for the cover of a book has its half-tones.'"After the Club Bindery closed in 1909 "James Macdonald purchased the largest part of the tools" (Thompson). Unaffected by the changing developments of the book and binding industry, the Macdonald bindery produced some of the finest bindings of its time both for themselves and for publishers and bookstores such as: Brentano's, Scribners, E.P. Dutton and Co., Gotham Book Mart and others" (Christie's, April 12, 2000).

Per Yuill (p.3), "by 1900 Little Black Sambo had been published in the U.S. by Stokes. who had purchased the rights from Grant Richards. No remuneration went to Bannerman." * Note: There are no dates in these Original American Black Sambo editions, because Helen Bannerman had sold the Publishing rights to Sambo in England to Grant Richards, who promptly proceeded to not give her any royalties when the book took off in sales. So she refused to give her permission, as the author, to any copyright in the U.S. for Richards or Stokes! It was never copyrighted in the States -- thus the numerous Pirated Editions beginning as early as 1905. **According to Barton, The Pictus Orbis Sambo, pages 116-118, the first U.S. edition had the title and author lettering on the covers in pale blue, matching the color of Sambo's pants in the illustrations on the two boards. The second issue (1901) has the title in black as only change. & the third issue (1902/3) has a red cloth spine, as opposed to a tan buckram cloth spine in the first and second issues.** __________________________________ Thus, This TRUE FIRST PRINTING, FIRST STATE BUCKRAM Bound is a SOLID EXAMPLE, Complete in 56 numbered pages (did not include blank reverses in count) with all 27 Color Plates present.

        F.g. Tait: A Record, Being His Life, Letters, And Golfing Diary

      J. Nisbet 1900 - With an introduction by Andrew Lang. Frederick Guthrie Tait (1870-1900) was born in Edinburgh, the son of a leading physicist and amateur golfer. He was educated at Edinburgh Academy and Sedbergh before entering RMA, Sandhurst, where he introduced golf. A very powerful and long hitter, at the R&A, St Andrews, on Jan 11, 1893, he hit the ball 250 yards onto frozen ground stopping 341 yards from the tee, thereby refuting his father's calculation that 190 yards was the maximum possible flight of a ball. Tait won the the Amateur Championship twice (1896, 1898), finished third in the Open Championship twice (1896, 1897) and was leading amateur in the same competition six times. He was also a crack shot and a first-class rugby player. Tait was killed in action at Koodoosbergh during the second Boer War. In a pocket on his dead body was found a letter showing the paw marks of his favourite dog "Nails". All profits from original sales of this book were donated to the Black Watch Widows' and Orphans' Fund. First Edition. 8vo. 304pp. Portrait frontis. (tissue-guard), 16 plates (tissue-guards). Original decorative green cloth, sl soiled, gilt lettering and golfing devices to front cover and spine. This is the variant green cloth edition, as opposed to the red cloth and vellum editions. A good copy. Uncommon.  [D&M, 3460]

        Baum, L. Frank

      . New York: Russell, 1900. 4to, x, 190pp, color frontispiece and 15 two-color plates within the pagination. Original cloth-backed pictorial boards, pictorial endpapers, a really good copy of a book rarely found in even adequate condition. In a new box. First edition, in the first state binding with pictorial endpapers. This is BaumÕs first book (although Mother Goose In Prose was published first). This title was an obvious attempt to cash in on the popularity of ÒAlice In WonderlandÓ; it was late reworked and published as ÒThe Surprising Adventures of the Magical Monarch of MoÓ. Aleph-Bet notes: ÒA notoriously rare Baum fantasy, that when found is usually lacking the frontis.Ó Not in Cotsen, Oppenheimer, Osborne, or Gumuchian. Peter Hanff noted: ÒThe volume has sixteen color inserts, including the title page, as follows: facing the title page, the title page, and facing pages 4, 12, 28, 38, 48, 60, 72, 92, 104, 120, 132, 152, 168, and 186. The plates, though unnumbered, are included in the pagination. Justin Schiller once had a file copy from the publisher that was annotated to indicate that the firm had run short of frontispieces.Ó

        [PAIR OF ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWINGS BY CHARLES RUSSELL, SHOWING SCENES OF AN INDIAN HUNTING WITH A RIFLE, AND A GROUP OF INDIANS RIDING HORSES]

      [Great Falls, Mt. n.d., ca. 1900].. Each illustration drawn in pencil on the verso of a trade card of the Park Hotel, Great Falls, Montana, each card 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Small stain in upper left corner of horse riding drawing, faint crease in lower left corner of hunting drawing, else fine. In a folding green cloth chemise and green cloth slipcase, spine gilt. An outstanding pair of original pencil drawings by the great western illustrator, Charles Russell. One of the drawings shows a group of three Indian braves riding horses bareback at a high rate of speed. The lead rider is about to take a whip to his horse. The other illustration shows a male Indian holding a rifle and peering around a tree. Whether the brave's prey is animal or human is a question left to the imagination of the viewer. Both of these illustrations are drawn on the verso of trade cards of the Park Hotel of Great Falls, Montana. Charles Russell and his wife moved from Cascade to Great Falls, Montana in 1897. One of Russell's first paying jobs in Great Falls was to draw original illustrations on menus for a special Christmas dinner at the Park Hotel that December. These two sketches are unsigned, but their attribution to Charles M. Russell has been confirmed to us by Patrick Stewart, the former Director of the Amon Carter Museum and a leading Russell scholar. A pair of evocative sketches by one of the greatest western artists.

        A scientific analysis of the deadly wreck of the Yukon River Steamer Florence S. in Alaska

      Fine content Autograph Manuscript Signed \"James. P Kimball,\" four pages, 8.25\" x 12.5\", titled \"Wreck of the Florence S.\" Offered together with a letterpress copy of the same manuscript. Some toning, marginal wear and minor tears.Kimball authors his own account of the ship\'s capsizing in the Yukon River in July 1900 that resulted in the deaths of three passengers. Kimball who was in Alaska at the time working on a survey, offers an analysis of the disaster from an engineering standpoint: \"Total destruction was wrought in an instant but too sharp a turn in an 8-mile current with a boat so loaded down that her guards were half under water. Crates of furniture on the hurricane [sic] deck doubtless added to her instability, which was obvious to all the passengers. A few moments of listing first to one side - then to the other - gave the last warning of her instability. With a final and decisive list to the starboard followed by a lurch, the cargo was spilled and the boat capsized. The top-hamp

        A New Wonderland. Illustrated by Frank Ver Beck

      New York: Russell, 1900. 4to, x, 190pp, color frontispiece and 15 two-color plates within the pagination. Original cloth-backed pictorial boards, pictorial endpapers, a really good copy of a book rarely found in even adequate condition. In a new box. First edition, in the first state binding with pictorial endpapers. This is BaumÕs first book (although Mother Goose In Prose was published first). This title was an obvious attempt to cash in on the popularity of Ã’Alice In WonderlandÓ; it was late reworked and published as Ã’The Surprising Adventures of the Magical Monarch of MoÓ. Aleph-Bet notes: Ã’A notoriously rare Baum fantasy, that when found is usually lacking the frontis.Ó Not in Cotsen, Oppenheimer, Osborne, or Gumuchian. & & Peter Hanff noted: Ã’The volume has sixteen color inserts, including the title page, as follows: facing the title page, the title page, and facing pages 4, 12, 28, 38, 48, 60, 72, 92, 104, 120, 132, 152, 168, and 186. The plates, though unnumbered, are included in the pagination. Justin Schiller once had a file copy from the publisher that was annotated to indicate that the firm had run short of frontispieces.Ó

A History of New York from the Beginning of the World to the End of the Dutch Dynasty. Containing, among Many Surprising and Curious Matters, the Unutterable Ponderings of Walter the Doubter, the Disastrous Projects of William the Testy, and the Chivalric Achievements of Peter the Headstrong --- the Three Dutch Governors of New Amsterdam; Being the Only Authentic History of the Times that Ever Hath Been or Ever Will Be Published by Diedrich Knickerbocker The whole Embellish'd by Eight Pictures from the Hand of Maxfield Parrish, Esqre. New York: R.H. Russell, 1900. Printed by D.B. Updike, The Merrymount Press, Boston (verso of title-page).Edition DeLuxe, one of 100 copies signed by the publisher. Folio (12 3/8 x 9 inches; 314 x 228 mm.). xxiv, 298, [1], [1 blank] pp. Title-page printed in red and black. Eight black and white plates in two states, with the proofs before letterpress printed on Japon Vellum. Publisher's DeLuxe presentation binding of full dark green morocco, spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt turn-ins, top edge gilt. Affixed to the front paste-down is the Publishers rectangular label printed in red "This edition is limited to / one hundred signed copies, / of which this is No. "26 / R. H. Russell". Spine slightly faded, slight offsetting from turn-ins onto endpapers. A fine copy."Parrish began a series of drawings in the spring of 1898 to illustrate the well-known book Knickerbocker's History of New York. A delightful parody on the history of colonial New York written by Washington Irving in 1809, Diedrich Knickerbocker's history was reprinted with Parrish's drawings in 1900 by R.H. Russell of New York. The artist worked the series into his schedule of commissions for magazine and poster designs, finishing the last of the nine drawings in September, 1899, a year and a half after the first one was begun.Parrish's visual interpretations of Washington Irving's Knickerbocker characters were as amusing as the text for which they were created. In depicting Oloffe Van Kortlandt's dream of the future New York (Oloffe, by selecting the site for New Amsterdam,became America's first great land speculator), Parrish set him against a turn-of-the-century Manhattan skyline. The portly little dreamer, perched in a treetop, reflects the burlesque humor of Irving's satirical history. Washington Irving characterized the American Indian as the innocent victim of the European settlers' greed, describing the Indian race as one which lived in harmony with its environment until "the benevolent inhabitants of Europe. [beheld] their sad condition. [and] immediately went to work to ameliorate and improve it. They introduced among them rum, gin, brandy, and the other comforts of life An Indian man, still reacting from the sting of a swallow of strong alcohol, appears somewhat uncertain about this gift from the white man in Parrish's illustration for this passage. The two-dimensional drawing, in ink, disregards linear perspective and, with the contrasting shading in lithographic crayon to give volume to the figure, creates an unusual juxtaposition of sizes and distances which adds significantly to the interest of the composition. The distant windmill is drawn with the same attention to minute detail as the demijohn sitting on the wall in the foreground. In both his drawings and his paintings the artist regularly exercised with great skill his preference for giving equal attention to details near and distant.
