        Speeches and Addresses of William McKinley.

      New York: Doubleday & McClure, 1900. First edition. Octavo, presentation binding original three quarters leather. Signed and inscribed on the first free end page in black ink as president, "For Hon. Elihu Root, with sincere regards, William McKinley." The recipient Elihu Root served as the Secretary of War under both McKinley andRoosevelt. He moved frequently between high-level appointed government positions in Washington, D.C.and private-sector legal practice in New York City. For that reason, he is sometimes considered to be the prototype of the 20th century political "wise man," advising presidents on a range of foreign and domestic issues. He was elected by the state legislature as a U.S. Senator from New York and served one term, 1909-1915. Alfred McCoy argues that Root was the first "foreign policy grandmaster" in American history, and that Root more than any other figure is responsible for transforming America into a world power. According to McCoy, Root devoted his time as Secretary of State and as a Senator to ensuring that the United States would have a consistent presence in world affairs, and Root helped to establish the Special Relationship between the United States and Great Britain. Root helped to ensure that powerful business interests and the intellectual elite supported an interventionist foreign policy. Root was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1912 as a result of his work to bring nations together through arbitration and cooperation. A remarkable association copy. William McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1897, until his assassination in September 1901, six months into his second term. McKinley led the United States in the Spanish-American War, raised protective tariffs to promote American industry, and maintained the nation on the gold standard in a rejection of inflationary proposals.

Tijdens zijn avonturen wordt Helias vergezeld door een zwaan die in werkelijkheid zijn broer is. De oudst bewaarde druk van de 'Ridder metter Swane' dateert van 1651, maar uit de daar achterin geplaatste approbatie, gedateerd Brussel 2 februari 1547, valt af te leiden dat er een zestiende-eeuwse druk moet hebben bestaan. Deze approbatie is in de latere drukken steeds herhaald, zo ook in deze negentiende-eeuwse uitgaaf, alleen is abusievelijk in plaats van 1547 als jaartal 1543 vermeld."

        Manuel et catalogues officiels de la section de Ceylan. Avec cartes et illustrations.

      - Colombo, George J. A. Skeen, Imprimerie Nationale, Ceylan, 1900. 8vo. Original colour printed boards with green cloth back-strip, illustrated insides of the boards; pp. xxiv, 166, [2, blank], all pages within printed red double-fillets, with a fine photogravure frontispiece, tinted in green, after a photo by Henry Cave with tissue guard, two colour-lithographic maps, 24 plates after photos, numerous photographic illustrations in the text; extremities minimally rubbed, a few negligible spots here and there, light toning to maps, otherwise a fine copy. Very rare first edition of the official exhibition catalogue of Ceylon at the Paris World Fair of 1900, lavishly produced and illustrated by George Justin Athelstan Skeen, the Ceylon Government printer from 1881 to 1906, who exhibited his own products at the fair. One section of the Sri Lankan fair stand was devoted to photography, and all photographers exhibiting contributed to the book: Cane (author of Golden Tips), Skeen, A.W. Andree & Co, and A. W. A. Plate & Co., as well as Andree & Sligh Ltd, the latter being responsible for the colour printing of the binding. The company applied the then pioneering three-colour printing technique to be used soon afterwards in A. & C. Black colour books. Of course the main focus of this volume is tea production and export; however, all other aspects of Sri Lanka are described and illustrated, from ethnography and society, infrastructure and agriculture, commerce, art and natural history, with some impressive scenes of elephants working, being washed and in the wild. We were able to locate copies at Harvard and in France only; not in COPAC. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Photo Album]: Photo Album of Victorian America, with larger images

      1900 - Oblong quarto. Measuring 9.5" x 10". A collection of 35 collodion prints all measuring roughly 7.5" x 9.5", without captions. The album is lacking the front and rear boards with near fine photographs with some modest edgewear. A photo album containing large prints revolving around a New England mansion at the turn of the century. Although the home is not identified it was clearly owned by a wealthy family as seen by a photograph of a parlor with an extensive art gallery full of what look like significant works of art. The home itself can be seen in photographs throughout the album displaying the grounds, which include a log cabin, and a large front porch complete with hammocks. One photo shows a group of well-dressed men seated in rocking chairs and another shows one lady reading while another sews. There is a group photo of people sitting on the low branches of a tree and posing by the log cabin. A wonderful collection of large photographic prints displaying the stately grandeur of an early 20th Century American home. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Tintype Photograph of the First African-American Medal of Honor Winner

      Full plate hand-painted tintype photograph of William H. Carney and his wife Susannah Carney, with the Sergeant wearing his Medal of Honor. Measuring 7.25" x 10". Scratched on the back: "Sgt. Wm. Carney, 54th Mass. Vols. 1900" (the date may be 1901). Left side corners clipped, flaking of the emulsion on and around his left leg and shoes, with some surface craquelure, and waviness to the tin, else very good condition.The Emancipation Proclamation (January 1, 1863) officially authorized recruiting black soldiers for the first time in the Civil War. That March, William Harvey Carney joined the all black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, commanded by 26 year-old Colonel Robert Gould Shaw. Because of Carney's education and leadership skills (he had studied to be a Preacher) he quickly rose to the rank of Sergeant. In July, the 54th Massachusetts was sent to James Island, South Carolina, where on July 18, Shaw offered to lead the charge against Fort Wagner (the attack on Fort Wagner was depicted in the film Glory). During the battle Shaw and his flag bearer were pinned down beneath the parapet of the fort. Trying to rally his men forward, Shaw and the flag bearer fell, both mortally wounded. In that moment, Carney seized the colors, prevented the flag from touching the ground, struggled up the parapet and, though wounded in the legs, chest, and arm, planted the colors at the top of the rampart. Despite his wounds and the heavy gunfire around him, Carney was able to keep the flag aloft, though pinned down until reinforcements arrived and the shredded unit was able to withdraw. Struggling back to Union lines while still carrying the colors, Carney collapsed saying: "Boys the old flag never touched the ground." He spent the next 11 months recuperating, but was never fit again, and because of his wounds, he received an honorable disability discharge in June, 1864.Carney's Medal of Honor citation reads: "When the color sergeant was shot down, this soldier grasped the flag, led the way to the parapet, and planted the colors thereon. When the troops fell back he brought off the flag, under a fierce fire in which he was twice severely wounded."Most Civil War Congressional Medals of Honor were awarded decades after the action, and while other African-Americans received theirs before Carney, his was for the earliest battle and he is unanimously acclaimed as "the first African-American Medal of Honor winner." The National Archives puts it plainly: "Sergeant William Carney of New Bedford, MA, became the first African-American awarded the Medal of Honor for Most distinguished gallantry in action..."A wonderful image. Rare. .

        The Feathered Songsters of Old England

      An unpublished ms of ornithological interest on the subject of cage birds and their care. LateVictorian/early twentieth century. The Feathered Songsters of Old England, an Illustrated Book of the Songbirds of Great Britain with instructions how to feed and treat them in Captivity, by Edwin John Harvey late President of the Hampshire & Sussex Fanciers Association author of Bird Tales. Two folio volumes of handwritten notes written by Edwin John Harvey [b. 1860], a solicitor in Portsea [Portsmouth] My object in writing this book is to give my readers such practical information as a study of the habits and wants of these interesting creatures for many years together with a great deal of reading on the subject enables one to do, thereby hoping to assist them in keeping their birds with greater pleasure to themselves and with an increased amount of pleasure of their pets in captivity. The journals cover all manner of song birds including; Nightingales - They should be taken in the nest just as their tail feathers have begun to grow, if they are fully fledged or nearly so, there is great difficulty in rearing them. They should be fed early in the morning about every two hours during the day and in the evening. Their food should consist of a kind of paste, made of stale bread crumbs soaked in milk then squeezed nearly dry and mixed with hard boiled yolk of eggs, a little scraped carrot and a littel scraped ( not chopped) raw beef.... Blackcap - It is a bird which soon knows the person who feeds and attends to it and shows signs of pleasure on seeing him by offering soft notes of joy.... Garden Warbler - it is well not to feed any young birds unless on touching the crest with one's fingers they at once spring up with open bills...directly they ceast to take food eagerly it should be taken away...all warblers should be treated much the same as nightingales and have similarly constructed cages. It should always be remembered they are delicate, will not live long if handled, require the greatest care and tenderness.... The Whitethroat - generally builds amog is an elegantly made though loosely contructed nest formed of goose grass...they do well in confinement for nine or ten years...singing well during this time.... The Hedge Chanter - This bird is commonly called the Hedge really a beautiful bird, the tints of the feathers are well-blended, its shape is very is a bird which is very easily tamd and is always amusing in confinement, when heard in early morn its song is pleasing and full of melody Alpine Chanter - .. in Switzerland and in Southern Germany this bird is as common as the Skylark is in England... The Kinglet - these birds have great command of themselves. They whisk about among the branches of trees, now on one side, now on the other, now hanging inverted under themhead being in constant motion never at rest. Redstarts - are birds which make anything but good cage birds, in fact it is difficult to keep them in health for any great length of time in captivity... Skylark - They sing in confinement from december until moulting time... Dunstable is the most celbrated place for them, they are caught there in great numbers and sent to the London markets.... Robin - I have seen Robins quite at home in the Sydenham Crystal Palace and upon enquiry was informed that they lived there and built their nests in the pools which fomred part of the banks at the South End.... Song Thrush - ...if handled they will most surely die from cramp. My experience is that it is quite useless attemtping to cure a bird when once attacked with this disease. It attacks them suddenly and fatally. I remember having a nest of these birds. One of them when almost fully grown flew onto my wrist eager to be fed and I let it nestle down in my hand. I allowed it to remain so a few moments only and was surprised to see on replacing it in the cage that it was unable to stand. I put some grass in the cage and and around the bird so as to keep it in an upright position but although it took food freely, it never recovered the use of its legs, but soon lost the use of its wings as well..... The author writes, too on other birds such as the Wagtail, Starling, Blackbird, Sparrow, etc as well cages and aviaries - This may be very ornamental, forming part of.. the conservatory with sufficient accomodation for birds of different kinds....a blind of strong wire gauze will best ensure a free admission of air and protection from cats and other foes.... Parastites, moutling and feeding are also covered. A fascinating insight into a late Victorian/Edwardian bird keeper, his observations and reflections on his experiences. Towards the end of the second volume are 40+ pages which seem to be recounting of the man's experiences with a number of different people he has dealt with in his capacity as a solicitor; a woman who made specious pension claims and who was addicted to Eau de Cologne [drinking it]; an intrusion into his office by an escaped madman; a mentally disturbed sailor [the author seems to have attracted troubled souls]. Right at the end is an 8 page short story labelled 'fiction' & entitled 'A Day's Sport in India', where a soldier finds himself in a tight spot trapped byan elephant. In total Approx. 145 pages on the subject of birds written in a clear hand to rectos only [c. 95 to volume one & c. 50 to volume two]. Some small woodcuts of Bewick attached to versos of some leaves. Signed off at the end with Harvey's address; 'Stanleigh', Nelson Road, Southsea. Pus the 40 or so pages at the end of volume two on his experiences as a solicitor. Both boards detached from volume one though text block still substantially holding with a number of leaves loose in both volumes. One board detached volume two and second board very loose.
