      London & New York: Harper, 1900. Hardcover. Gitterman's small bookplate tipped to the front free endpaper. Repaired tear to the spine head not touching the lettering. A little cocked with rubbing along spine edges. Very Good. Preceded by an edition published by Stokes earlier in the year with the subtitle: "The Story of a Very Young Couple." This copy INSCRIBED on the half title page to Joseph Gitterman on Monday Oct. 31 [1921] and SIGNED "H. G. Wells" with a fancy flourish at the end.

        The Thirty-Sixth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, 1st Brigade, 2d Division, 2d Army Corps. Army of the Potomac. An Authentic Record of the Regiment

      [No place - Milwaukee?]: The Author. 1900. First. First edition. Large quarto. Blue cloth decorated and titled in gilt, and stamped in white. 430pp. Illustrated from photographs and drawings. Small broadside or handbill from the Association of Survivors of the 36th Wis. Vol. Infty. affixed to a rear blank leaf. Also affixed before the index is a small printed broadside "Affidavit of Patrick H. Doody" repudiating a slight against the Regiment which appeared in an article. Mild wear, very good plus, or better. This copy Inscribed by one Medal of Honor winner to another: "To companion Robert A. Gray of the Medal of Honor Legion, this History of a gallant regiment of which I had the honor to serve, is respectfully inscribed with the best wishes of George E. Albee. 1st Lieut. Bvt. Capt. U.S. Army. New Haven, Conn. June 10, 1901." Gray won his Medal of Honor for returning to the battlefield at Drurys Bluff, Virginia after his regiment had retreated in order to rescue a wounded officer. Albee is mentioned prominently throughout the history (including his personal meeting with Lincoln on behalf of the Regiment), which reveals that he received a Medal of Honor for actions against hostile Indians in 1869 on the Brazos River in Texas. .

        Original Art: Jewish Couple in Psychiatrist's Waiting Room

      Original art. Acrylic on canvas backed with board. Framed to approximately 29.5" x 23.5". Signed "X. Cugat" lower right. A couple of wrinkles on the canvas, else fine. A satirical painting of a Jewish husband sitting in the waiting room of a psychiatrist, with his wife, who is dressed like a nun. Cugat probably had as much to do with bringing a Latin flavor to American music as any other musician. Born in 1900 in Spain, he emigrated with his family to Cuba when he was five. Trained as a violinist, he moved to New York as a teenager to take advantage of the short-lived tango craze. When it inevitably ended, he employed his talents as an artist to work as a cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times and eventually had his cartoons syndicated by King Features. As sound began to be used in movies, he assembled another tango band that had some success. He took his band to New York where it became the resident band for the new Waldorf Astoria. A notorious womanizer, he had four wives and always put attractive women in his groups. He gave Rita Hayworth one of her first jobs, and his third wife was blonde bombshell and singer Abbe Lane. In the mid-1960s, he took another blonde as a wife, who became the famous "cuchi-cuchi girl" Charo. His brother, Francis Cugat, also harbored an artistic bent, and was the artist who created the striking dust jacket art for F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. Shipping extra. .

      New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Here is a beautiful, collector-grade copy of the true first edition of Churchill's third book and only novel. A very young Churchill was exuberant about publication at the time, even though he later made self-deprecating comments about the book. Moreover, even though Savrola was his third published book, it was actually the first book he undertook and the second he completed. It certainly makes for an interesting insight into the early perspective and sentiment of the then very young Churchill. Of note, this is one of the few Churchill books for which the U.S. edition is the true first edition. In fact, the British first edition was issued from American plates. This U.S. first edition is thus the first Churchill book published in the 20th Century. Here is a superlative, near-fine example. The blue cloth binding is tight, square, bright, and clean. All four corners remain sharp. Searching for exterior flaws, we note only only trivial hints of wear confined to extremities and a tiny indentation at the top edge of the front cover. Spine presentation is outstanding; there is no toning or soiling to the spine, which bears only the slightest hints of wear at the spine ends and a few barely discernible spots on the lower third of the spine. The spine gilt remains vivid with no dulling or flaking. The contents are clean and bright. No spotting. The text block edges are clean, showing only slight age-toning. The only flaw preventing this copy from being truly fine is slight warping of pages 80-140, as if they were once exposed to moisture. However, this is only speculation, since the binding shows absolutely no sign of any such exposure and the affected pages are unstained and unspotted. A single previous owner name is inked on the ffep, and is clearly an old signature, as the ink has slightly faded and spread. The outstanding binding is protected in a removable, clear mylar cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A3.1.a, Woods/ICS A3(a.1), Langworth p.39.

While his great strength and exploits as a sportsman inspired the natives of Africa with a wholesome awe, he owed the friendly character of his relations with them to his forebearing and sympathetic temper.’& Mendelssohn Vol. 2, pp.129. ‘... Oswell went for a trip to the Cape after suffering a severe illness, here he met with Mr Murray and accompanied him on a trip to the interior, which was followed by a second trip with Captain Frank Vardon. In the course of these explorations Oswell met David Livingstone, and a lasting friendship sprang up. He accompanied Livingstone on the expedition that Lake N'gami was discovered. He also took part in the explorations which led to the discovery of the River Zambesi. In 1860 he married and settled down in England occupying himself mainly in literary work, in the course of which he revised the Ms. and proofs of Livingstone's "Zambesi and its Tributaries," and subsequently contributed an article to the "Badminton" Series on the big game of South Africa ...’ Additional postage may be necessary.
