        The Winning of the West. Daniel Boone Edition with Roosevelt manuscript. Four volume set.

      Four volume set; 5 folding maps, 102 plates. Here, #2 of only 200 sets in the original grained green morocco which has reverted to brown at the spines; floral gilt corner devices, raised bands, gilt titled spine. Top edge gilt; others deckled. Ruled & floriated dentelles; remarkably preserved red suede end & fly sheets. One page folded legal leaf in Roosevelt's hand mounted following colophon reveals his editing wasn't reflective but done as he wrote (lined through words here bracketed): "The attitude of the British gradually changed from one of passive to active hostility. In 1792 and '93 they still (united) [to keep] the Indians to make [at] peace with the Americans, provided always there were no such concessions made to the latter as would endanger the British control of the fur trade. But by the beginning of 1794 the relations between the Great Britain and the United States had become so strained that open war was threatened; for the advisors of the king, relying on the weakness of the young Federal Republic had begun to adopt towards it that tone of brutal insolence, which [backed by] reflected well the general attitude of the British people toward all Americans, and which finally brought on the second war between the two nations. The British officials in Canada were quick to reflect the tone of the home government, and, as always in such cases, [some of them] the more zealous and belligerent went a little farther than they were authorized. On February 10th Lord Dorchester, Governor of Canada, in an address of welcome to some of the chiefs from the tribes of the north and west, said speaking of the boundary, [speaking of children, since my return, I find no appearance of a line] "Children since my return I find no appearance of a line remains; and the manner in which the people of the United States push on and act and talk [on this]....I shall not be xxx surprised if we are at war with them in the course of the present year; and if so a line must then be drawn by the warriors....we have acted in the most peaceable manner and borne the language and conduct of the people if the United States with patience; but I believe our patience is almost exhausted." (1) [At the Nor that] Of course such a speech, delivered to such an audience, was [merely incitement to war a direct] more than a mere incitement to war; it was a direct appeal to arms. [P] Nor did the [incitement] encouragement given the Indians end with words; for [Simcoe] in April, Simcoe, [who was in command in upper Canada, went to] the lieutenant-governor, himself built a fort at the Miami rapids, in the very heart of the hostile.... (1). Rives' Life and Times of James Madison, III, 418. A verified copy of the speech, from the archives of the London Foreign Office. The authenticity of the speech was admitted at the time by the British minister; yet, extraordinary to say, not only British, but American historians, had spoken of it as spurious."

        Pair of Chinese Door God Paintings.

      No date. Ca. early 1900s? PAIR OF PAINTINGS, each on a sheet of board 24 x 15 inches. Some light abrasions, overall light soiling, overall good to very good displayable condition. Verso of the board shows signs of their having been previously framed. These are beautiful examples of vintage Chinese folk art painting, well executed with a great sense of movement and attention to detail in such touches as the silvered highlights. The custom of placing these images to ward off bad spirits from a dwelling or business dates back to the effectiveness of two T'ang era generals in ridding their Emperor of a troublesome ghost. An estimation of date might be the early 1900s. A bold, colorful pair.

        Life of a Pioneer

      George Q. Cannon & Sons, Salt Lake City 1900 - 520pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] Brown cloth with the title gilt on the front board and on the backstrip. Decorative blind stamped borders to boards. Very good. Mild rubbing to the corners of the boards with minor nicks to the cloth. Private non-lending library ink stamp on the pastedowns and endsheets and nine times through the text. Eight multiplication problems in ink on the recto of the front flyleaf. James Stephen Brown (1828-1902) was a member of the Mormon Battalion who crossed the west and reached California in 1847. He was with James Marshall when he discovered gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848, which would lead to the California Gold Rush nearly a year later (it took a while for this information to reach and disseminate across the rest of America). Brown was also a successful missionary in the South Pacific and one of the early settlers on the Little Colorado and was an early missionary to the Navajo and Hopi. "Before his death he wrote an interesting sketch of his life which was published in book form under the title 'Life of a Pioneer, being the autobiography of James S. Brown' in which interesting work the details of Bro. Brown's life are depicted in a way calculated to inspire faith and confidence in the great Latter-day work, to which Bro. Brown devoted his life's strength and energy." - Andrew Jenson 'L.D.S. Biographical Encyclopedia' This highly readable memoir is a surprisingly uncommon. Flake/Draper 900. Graff 426. Howes B849.

      1900 - Alcide Davide Campestrini nacque a Trento nel 1863 e morì a Milano nel 1940. Frequentò l’Accademia di Brera ed ivi fu insegnante. Nato a Trento nel 1863 fin dall’infanzia manifesta spiccate attitudini per la pittura. Dopo aver frequentato la scuola di disegno nella città natale si trasferisce a Milano, dove frequenta l’Accademia di Brera. Fu allievo di Raffaele Casnedi, Francesco e Ambrogio Borghi, ma suo maestro elettivo e grande ammiratore, oltreché amico, fu Giuseppe Bertini. A solo 24 anni ottenne la nomina a professore della R. Scuola d’arte applicata all’industria del Castello Sforzesco. Alla cattedra accede dopo alterne vicende. Campestrini, infatti era fuoriuscito nel 1881 dal Trentino a causa della sua renitenza alla leva nell’esercito austriaco; questo episodio venne risolto grazie all’intervento del marchese Emilio Visconti Venosa, garibaldino, all’epoca presidente dell’Accademia di Brera, che fece concedere a Campestrini il permesso di ritornare nella terra d’origine. Ma la sua città d’elezione fu sempre Milano, dove la sua attività coglieva i maggiori successi e dove partecipò alle più importanti esposizioni. Nel 1894 fu nominato socio onorario dell’Accademia di Brera, dove teneva pure il corso di figura. Oltre che ritrattista e paesaggista, il Campestrini si meritò gran fama nella pittura storica e nella decorazione di ville, palazzi di cui ricordiamo quella del Teatro Sociale di Trento. Firmato al verso, segni di restauro, si vende in cornice.\r Formato: Olio su tela di cm 33x44. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo.

First edition. A science fiction novel in which the protagonist, Gerald Pierce de Lacy, is sent three hundred years into the future by occult means. The world of 2174 is an authoritarian dystopia ruled by the Chinese who possess weapons of mass destruction (including something that might be a disintegrating ray) and a huge fleet of flap-winged airships of great speed and power. The Chinese empire is attacked by rebel forces based in Antarctica, the hidden headquarters of their leader, England's King Arthur. The insurgents are soundly defeated and the king is killed in a battle fought with fantastic weapons. "Yet this nominal victory for the Chinese marks the beginning of the downfall of their empire, for the rest of the world rises in rebellion. The English fleet destroys the Chinese capital, and eventually the empire falls ... [Lenore, King Alfred's daughter becomes] Queen of England, or, as the book title has it, Queen of the World. De Lacy would be Lenore's consort, but he is snatched back to the nineteenth century ... A curious work. Similar to the work of George Griffith, but superior in many ways. It is hack work done by a good writer who has dashed off a thriller hastily without worrying about loose ends, inconsistencies, or clarity." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1607.

        THE FOX-WOMAN ..

      Philadelphia & London: J. B. Lippincott Company, 1900.. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-308 [309-320: ads], frontispiece with illustration by Virginia H. Davisson, title page printed in red and black, original pictorial white cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red and purple, rear panel stamped in red (binding signed "H"), t.e.g., other edges untrimmed. First edition. A presentation copy with initialed inscription by Long on the front free endpaper: "Das heist vergiss-mein-nich" (This means forget-me-not). Exotic romance of Americans in Japan; the title character is a beautiful but heartless femme fatale associated with the Fox Woman legend referred to as the "vampire-girl" - in short, the flame-haired variant of the vamp. No transformations; but Japanese victim succumbs to atavism under her fascination, has "a lust for warm and flowing blood," biting his prey. An evil dwarf features prominently in the story. Part sensational romance, part serious study of cultural conflicts, art vs. life, and the nature and destiny of souls. The author is best known for his short story "Madame Butterfly," dramatized in collaboration with David Belasco, later made into the famous opera by Puccini. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Not in Reginald (1978). Wright (III) 3388. Stamping on spine panel faded, mild dust soiling to rear panel, a very good copy. A very nice copy of a rare vampire novel. (#136802)

        Sketchbook with 45 scenes, mostly landscapes and views, mostly rendered with color pencils

      1900. Cloth Binder. Very Good. Lovely country landscapes, panaromas and cottages drawn by a sure hand with a real Impressionistic panache. N.d., circa 1900, based on the kind of album binder used. 4to. 27 by 19 cm. Most of the illustrations are done directly on the paper in the album, with some loose or attached via slits in the backing paper. And the vast majority are most of the page or one to a page, with a few pages with two illustrations. Place captions or short titles abound, although they are not always fully readable. There are mountain views, bridges, rivers, lakes, churches, gardens, streams, forests, groves, winter and summer views, and unnumerable cottages. There are also drawings of a few bouquets and flowers, and four drawings of butterflies. Finally, there is a black and white drawing of sailboats. A particular effective technique was Atkinson's use of a black pencil to provide an almost painterly sheen as well as provide some depth and motion. Wear to the cloth cover.
