        Estructura de la corteza cerebral olfativa del hombre y memiferos. In Trabajos del Laboratorio de Investigationes biologicas de la Universidad de Madrid, vol. 1

      Madrid, 1901. Ramon y Cajal, Santiago (1852-1934). Trabajos de Laboratorio de investigaciones biologicas de la Universidad de Madrid. Vols. I – II only. [4], 227; [4], 225pp. Text illustrations. Madrid: Nicolás Moya, 1901-3. 234 x 155 mm. The two volumes bound together in library buckram, spine faded, extremities worn, “Phipps Clinic” [Johns Hopkins] stamped in white on front cover. Some browning and chipping especially in first volume, rear flyleaf loose, embossed library stamp on titles of both volumes. Library bookplate and withdrawal stamp; modern bookplate. First Edition of Vols. I – II of the Trabajos de Laboratorio de investigaciones biologicas de la Universidad de Madrid, containing the first printings of several of Ramon y Cajal’s key papers on the human cerebral cortex. Established in 1901 and funded by the Spanish government, the Trabajos was the successor to Ramon y Cajal’s Revista trimestral micrografica, the periodical he had founded in 1897 to publish his neurological researches and those of his pupils at the University of Madrid. Volume I of the Trabajos consists of six papers by Ramon y Cajal, four of which—“Estructura de la corteza olfativa del hombre y mamíferos,” “Textura del lóbulo olfativo accesorio,” “Estructura del septum lucidum,” and “Sobre un ganglio especial de la corteza esfeno-occipital”—were translated into English and published together as Studies on the Cerebral Cortex (Limbic Structures) (1955). Volume II contains an additional eight papers by Ramon y Cajal, together with four by other authors. These papers were some of the first fruits of Ramon y Cajal’s researches on the human cerebral cortex undertaken in 1879-1900, in which he used advanced staining techniques to “[describe] and [classify] the various types of neurons in such a way, he believed, as to permit the ascribing of specific structural patterns to different areas of the cortex; hence he was able to place the concept of cerebral localization on firm histological foundations. His descriptions of the cerebral cortex are still the most authoritative” (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). 1428.1

        Cinq Années de Ma Vie 1894-1899

      McClure, Phillips & Co., New York 1901 - 2 p.l. & 212 pages; A remarkably rare and legally significant copy of the 1901 memoirs by Alfred Dreyfus, the French Army officer at the heart of a cruel forgery and subsequent miscarriage of justice known as the "Dreyfus Affair" -- which has reverberated around the civilized world from 1894, when Dreyfus was falsely accused of treason to France, right through to the present day. This copy was never published in any usual sense, nor was it ever offered for sale to the public. In this case, the old saying is incorrect -- one can judge from the cover that this book is different, and special. The front cover has the two-tone cloth and decorative gilt-stamped title (in English), of the normal edition published by McClure, Phillips in New York. But the spine is nearly a half-inch thinner than normal, and has a neatly-handwritten title in French written in ink at the head -- [substituted for the usual U. S. trade edition of the English translation, which displayed a title lettered in gilt, all in capital letters: FIVE / YEARS / OF / MY LIFE / [Fleur de lys device in gilt] ALFRED / DREYFUS / and at bottom McCLURE / PHILLIPS / & CO"]. This made-up French text edition is one of two copies legally filed for copyright at the Library of Congress with the following physical marks in evidence of this remarkable fact: The paper Library of Congress label is mounted with glue to the lower spine -- the LC Classification "DC" is printed, the rest ("354 / D78") is supplied in ink ms. along with the notation at the bottom of the label - "Copy 2". The Library of Congress, "Copyright Deposit" bookplate is mounted to the front paste-down, with penciled class and book numbers repeated from the label on the spine, and the note: "Copy 2". The (blank) front free-endpaper facing this bookplate has the modern Library of Congress "Surplus-Duplicate" stamp in blue ink, (making this copy legally possible to buy and sell). The title page has a perforated stamp: "LIBRARY OF CONGRESS" (there is also an ink stamp in small blue letters: "L. of C." at the foot of page 99). On the copyright page (the verso of the title page), there is a rectangular ink stamp reading: "The Library of Congress | Two Copies Received | April 24 1901 | Copyright Entry | (The Date is repeated and the Class and Number for copyright, different from the Class and book numbers entered on the label, are handwritten in ink) | At the bottom of this retangular stamp is the stamped notation COPY B" There is also, at the foot of this page, a penciled notation with the Class and Book number repeated in pencil, and this is now crossed through with a diagonal line. Finally, the date "APR 24 1901" is also inkstamped at the head of the rear free endpaper. (On the blank recto of this leaf, there is another date stamped in ink: "May. 9. 1901" The verso of the title page has two statements and three short paragraphs which explain what this remarkable copy represents. "Copyright, 1901, By August F. Jaccaci. / Copyright, 1901, By McClure, Phillips, & Co." The first man named, August Florian Jaccaci, was born in Fontainebleau, France in 1856. After traveling extensively in various countries including Mexico and Cuba, he settled in the United States in the early 1880s. He worked briefly as an artist in the Midwest, creating murals on commission, including a mural in the Capitol building in St. Paul, Minnesota. Jaccaci then moved to New York City and worked as art editor for Century magazine (where S. S. McClure was also briefly employed). He became art editor of 'McClure's Magazine' at its founding in 1896. Evidently, S. S. McClure referred to himself, Jacacci, and his partner John Phillips as "The Three Muskeeteers" in the founding of McClure's Magazine. Jaccaci evidently "induced" Alfred Dreyfus to write these memoirs and made the business arrangements for publication in several languages in 1901. It should be noted that Samuel Sidney McClure's first publishing business was McClure's Syndicate (1884), which [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Theatre. Illustrated Monthly Magazine. The 1st 42 volumes comprising 1901 through 1925 complete.

      New York:: Meyer Bros. & Co. & The Theatre Magazine Co.,. 1901-1925.. Hardcover. Very good overall. An almost unobtainable run of this high quality magazine, which provides extensive coverage of performers and productions on the New York stage in the early 20th Century. It also gives a window into the cultural landscape, particularly fashion, opera, vaudeville and early motion pictures. Each issue includes superb colored images for front cover portraits of leading players (usually actresses) of the day as well as color back cover ads. It is a photo-rich publication. This copy possibly inscribed by Noel Coward to Thomas Quinn Curtis. It is inscribed on the ffep of Volume 1; "To Tom Curtis for his prenatal Memories. Noel. Creperal (sp?) 73". Thomas Curtiss was the theater critic for the International Herald Tribune and other newspapers, based in Paris for over 50 years. The signature is not identical to earlier ones, but this would be a late signature, shortly before his death in March 1973. Certainly, the two would have known each other, considering their involvement in the theater and the cultural scene at the time. OCLC: 5589695 describes the publication as monthly from 1901 to 1917, starting with [Vol. 1], no. 3 (May 1901). OCLC: 558986926 describes the series to 1931. It was first published as "Our Players' Gallery", published in 2 issues as Vol. 1, no. 1 (Oct. 1900)-vol. 2, no. 1 (Jan.-Feb. 1901) as OCLC: 10991846. These are not present in this bound edition, but this copy does include "Our Players' Gallery" Edition de Luxe," published by Meyer Bros. & Co in 1901, 32pp with "Over 100 Portraits of Stage Celebrities." This is NOT located in OCLC, title page loose.) Each volume contains an index, Vol.1 also indexes the "Our Players' Gallery". The exquisite front and back covers are works of art. Although listed as "photographs", they are printed on rag paper in 12 colors and more resemble luminous paintings. Some of the artists include Ira S. Hill, Otto Sarony & Arnold Genthe. The advertisements are often for cigarettes and flash cars. 42 volumes, small folio, the early years contained in one volume with 12 issues of between 16-34pp & b&w covers, progressing to two volumes per year, each with six monthly issues of approximately 34pp and 20pp of adverts with chromolithographed front & back covers and chromolithographed portraits. The covers and sometimes internal pages are printed on rag paper in full color; the interior pages are printed on glossier paper stock in black & white. Uniformly bound in publishers green decorated buckram with art nouveau border on front board. Some spines a little bit browned but boards. Inscription on the front inside board of volume one (inside hinge paper somewhat cracked) otherwise all bindings very firm. An advertisement for the magazine in Life Magazine in 1907 indicates the tremendous cost of the magazine. It quotes the 1901-02-03-04-05-06-07 volume for $25, $18, $15, $10, $6, $5 & $7 respectively, "A Book for Your Parlor Table, 12 color plates, 1,500 engravings... The Handsomest Magazine Published, The most sumptuously illustrated the most splendidly printed, full of anecdotes, reminiscences and stories of stage-life." (Life, Vol. 50). We have to agree with that description.

        Undine and Aslauga's Knight

      London: George Newnes Ltd. The Caxton Series, 1901. Limited Edition. First Edition Thus. Full Decorative Calf. Cloth Box. Near Fine. One of 25 copies printed on Japanese vellum and signed by illustrator Harold Nelson, with a stunning Cedric Chivers of Bath Art Nouveau-styled binding whose centerpiece is a leather relief and intarsia image. 8vo. 20 by 13.5 cm. xiii, 192 pp. With 12 illustrations, in a Medievalist style akin to the work of Beardsley, and additional decorative devices. It is the highly decorative yet sublime Art Nouveau full calf binding, above all else, that makes this copy special. Decoratively one finds typical Art Nouveau ornamentation -- languid bending lines, rising from and resolving themselves in geometric floral devices and the like, a verticality, etc. Ornamental effects are in gilt and/or blindstamped. The box comes in a plain cloth box, which served to protect it. The pictorial leather work is of course the piece-de-resistance. LIght wear along the joints. A few dark spots along the edges. Light foxing on a few tissue guards. The box has the title crudely written by hand on the side. General moderate wear to this box.

        Ferdinand von Reznicek: Am Busen der Natur (Originalzeichnung)

      1901 - Tusche, Farbstift und Deckweiß auf Karton. 40 x 23,5 cm. Rechts unten signiert. Veröffentlicht: Simplicssimus. Jahrgang 6 (1901), Heft 23, Seite 181. Biografie: Ferdinand von Reznicek. (1868 Wien - 1909 München). Nach Beendigung der Laufbahn als K.u.K-Kavallerieoffizier zieht Ferdinand von Reznicek 1888 nach München, um an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste Malerei zu studieren. Nebenbei sammelt er erste Erfahrungen als Illustrator und Pressezeichner der Fliegenden Blätter. Der künstlerische Durchbruch gelingt ihm schließlich dank der Mitarbeit an der Satirezeitschrift Simplicissimus. Von ihrer Gründung 1896 bis zu Rezniceks Tod 1909 veröffentlicht sie knapp 600 Beiträge von ihm, ebenso erscheinen sieben Alben mit seinen Zeichnungen im angegliederten Albert Langen Verlag. Der Künstler zählt damit sowohl zu den populärsten als auch auch produktivsten Zeichnern des Blattes. Seine Nachfolge treten Ernst Heilemann, Marcello Dudovich und Brynolf Wennerberg an. Im Gegensatz zu Mitarbeitern wie Olaf Gulbransson, Thomas Theodor Heine oder Bruno Paul behandelt von Reznicek keine gesellschaftspolitischen Themen. Seine Motive sind meist in der Welt des Geburts- und Geldadels, aber auch in der Lebe- und Halbwelt angesiedelt. Boudoirs, Séparées und Ballsäle bilden die Kulisse für allerlei amüsante Szenen, in denen es häufig um die Aufdeckung doppelter Moral oder die erotische Annäherung zwischen Mann und Frau geht. Eine dezidiert komische Note erhalten die Beiträge meist durch einen von der Redaktion beigefügten Titel bzw. Bilddtext. Anders als die meisten Mitarbeiter des Simplicissimus verzichtet von Reznicek in seinen Darstellungen auf übertreibende oder verzerrende Elemente, weshalb sie nur bedingt als Karikaturen anzusehen sind. Die vorwiegend mit Tusche, Feder und Gouache ausgeführten Beiträge zeichnen sich durch elegante Strichführung sowie ausgeprägten Farbsinn aus und sind meist als bildhaft komponierte Szenen angelegt. Besonderes Augenmerk legt der Künstler dabei auf die Wiedergabe der Gewänder mit ihren Fältelungen und Mustern, die mit fließendem Pinselstrich in dünner Struktur aufgetragen sind. Durch zarte tonale Abstufungen bzw. monochrome Schattierungen gewinnen Rezniceks Werke gemäldeartigen Charakter, was ihre Beliebtheit beim Publikum zusätzlich erklären dürfte.

        First on the Antarctic Continent,

      London: George Newnes, Limited,, 1901. Being an Account of the British Antarctic Expedition 1898-1900. Octavo. Original blue diagonally-ribbed cloth, titles and vignette of author on skis gilt to spine, front cover lettered in gilt and decorated with large gilt and silver block of the Southern Cross in pack ice, top edge gilt, fore edge untrimmed, black coated endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece of the author with facsimile signature and laid-in tissue guard, numerous photogravures in the text (18 full-page), 3 coloured folding maps. Spine slightly sunned, a few very small nicks to spine-ends, tips bumped, mild spotting towards top edge of half-title, very light offsetting and marginal foxing to title, small mark to bottom edge of sig. T2 not affecting text, leaves partly unopened. An excellent copy. First edition, first-issue binding. Rare presentation copy of this uncommon and attractively produced polar title, inscribed "To Mr Moberly Bue, with the author's compliments. March 8th 1901" on the half-title. Financed by the publisher Sir George Newnes, the Southern Cross expedition "laid claim to a number of 'firsts': the first time dogs were used on the Antarctic continent, a furthest south record, the first sledge journey on the Ross Ice Shelf ?[and today] best remembered as having discovered the northward movement of the Ross Ice Shelf and the emperor penguin rookery at Cape Crozier" (Taurus). Borchgrevink probably did not get the credit that he deserved as Sir Clements Markham and the geographical establishment were dismissive of his rather journalistic account, and their "attention was focussed on Scott's forthcoming expedition" (Howgego). It was not until 1930, just four years before his death, that Borchgrevink received the RGS Patron's Medal.

      Published for the Author by Christian Publishing Company [1901]., St. Louis - Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v-xiv 15-419 [420: blank], original maroon cloth, front panel stamped in gold and blind, spine panel stamped in gold, rear panel stamped in blind. First edition? "Lost race novel set in pre-Columbian Central America among the Chichimecs and Toltecs. The former are postulated to be survivors of Atlantis. Oddly enough, all the characters in the novel have English names (Winnie, Edmond, Oscar, Stonewall, etc.); and they speak and act like characters in a Victorian society romance. The heroine has not two but three rivals. This story is spliced together with a rather opaque adventure story about conflict between the Chichimecs and the Toltecs. The most overtly fantastic feature of the book relates to a lake high up in the mountains, whose depths conceal a strange monster generated from the slain bodies and reincarnated souls of vanquished Chichimecs warriors, ingloriously dumped into the lake by their enemies, the evil Toltecs. The natives have a fear of the lake and avoid it. Once every century, the monster rises and frolics in the sunshine for a period of time, then returns quietly to its Stygian prison. The story is told within a double frame narrative: American campers discover a cave in which are found the remains of a Spanish priest who translated the story from the Toltec language into Spanish, which manuscript is then translated by the campers into English. The priest states that the original story was composed in 1005 A.D. Why 11th century Toltecs (or Chichimecs) would compose a Victorian novel, complete with English names and English mores, is nowhere explained. Perhaps these ex-Atlanteans were time travelers. Imagining so would help relieve what is otherwise an extremely dull (though rare) book." - Robert Eldridge. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Not in Eichner, Atlantean Chronicles. The Stuart Teitler Collection of Lost Race Fiction, p. 8 (recording this edition). Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 A-323 (recording a Salem, Mo. edition of 1901). Some damp staining to cloth and edges of text block, lower right corners bruised, a good, sound copy of an uncommon book. (#149485) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Bureaux de la Revue, 1901. - Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1901, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.Reliure editor per bradel metà oscura calico verde, liscia schiena, parte del titolo marocco nero, piccolo ferro dorato e doppio oro nei numeri netti queue.Douze da gennaio a dicembre 1901 numero conservées.Chaque Covers Edition è illustrato con una xylographie.Contributions letterario Paul Fort, André Gide ("Emmanuel Signoret", "I limiti dell'arte"), Francis Jammes, etc.Publication fondata nel 1890 da Henri Mazel, l'Hermitage è una recensione Mensile appartenente alla prima ondata di riviste piccoli simbolisti. Nel 1895, la rivista tra il declino e il suo nuovo direttore, Edouard Ducoté, utilizza André Gide. La redazione è ridotto a dodici collaboratori regolari, amici Gide. Dopo molte difficoltà e tentativi per rivedere la redazione (Remy de Gourmont ci sarà una transizione e contribuirà anche finanziariamente nel 1905), l'Hermitage spirò nel 1906 L'Ermitage riesce a venire fuori altro importanti riviste del tempo, come la Francia o La Revue blanche Mercure de perché vanta eclettico e apolitica; in copertina, si può anche leggere che è "l'unica rivista che si occupa solo di politica o sociologia [ma] che si occupa solo con la letteratura e l'arte." Le sue piccole illustrazioni sono in stile art nouveau, e, fedele al suo stato d'animo simbolista, i dipendenti sono più interessati alla poesia di romanzo. Tiphaine Samoyault, critico letterario francese, ha detto che il Hermitage esprime una transizione a cavallo della fin de siècle estetismo e poesia d'avanguardia degli anni 1910. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1901. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Paul Fort, André Gide ("Emmanuel Signoret", "Les limites de l'art"), Francis Jammes, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant - garde des années 1910.

        La photographie des objets immergés

      Paris, Charles Mendel éditeur, [1901]. in - 4 de 228, (4), 8 pp., 8 épreuves au gélatino - bromure d'argent contrecollées demi chagrin brun moderne [1901], [1901], , in - 4 de 228, (4), 8 pp, 8 épreuves au gélatino - bromure d'argent contrecollées, demi chagrin brun moderne, Rarissime ouvrage écrit par Adolphe - Louis Donnadieu (1840 - 1911), célèbre référence dans le domaine de la photographie, notamment grâce au développement d'un instrument baptisé "physiographe", destiné à la prise de vue de préparations microscopiques en milieu aqueux (cf. La Photographie appliqué aux sciences biologiques et le physiographe universel, Lyon, 1884 ; Denis Canguilhem, Le Merveilleux scientifique. Photographies du monde savant en France, 1844 - 1918, Paris, Gallimard, 2004). Professeur à la faculté catholique des sciences de Lyon et photographe expérimenté, le chercheur n'écarte aucunement la photographie en tant qu'instrument de la recherche scientifique. La photographie des objets immergés commence avec une drôle d'anecdote où l'auteur nous explique l'exigence de cette application spéciale du médium : "En l'année 1880 j'avais entrepris, l'exécution d'un Atlas d'anatomie comparée [...] J'avais fait appel à un peintre [...] je disséquais sous l'eau [...] dans l'eau les couleurs disparaissent assez rapidement [...]. Mon peintre se plaignait beaucoup de la difficulté qu'il éprouvait à retrouver « ses couleurs » lors qu'il avait dû employer les premiers heures à fixer le dessin. [...] et j'étais condamné à entendre l'artiste répéter tous les jours : « Vous qui faites tant de photographie essayez donc d'en faire dans ces conditions - là »". Le texte est riche en illustrations représentant le procédé d'immersion, les matériaux utilisés et les nouvelles modifications apportées au physiographe pour le rendre plus performant. L'auteur nous guide dans ce voyage expérimental, agrémenté de nombreuses références historiques et techniques sur la photographie classique "à sec", afin nous aider à mieux comprendre l'importance et la supériorité incontestable de la photographie "dans l'eau", tout en restant conscient qu'il faut bien vérifier que l'objet se prête à l'immersion. En outre cet ouvrage contient 8 photographies originales d' animaux disséqués "à sec" et "dans l'eau" (lapin, vipère, seiche, lézard, poule, tortue). Un extrait du catalogue de l'éditeur Charles Mendel est relié in fine, avec quatrième de couverture conservée. Bel exemplaire, en partie non découpé, tirages de très belle qualité

      Rampart, Alaska:: [Forum Publishing Co.],. September 1, 1901. Folio, 11.5" x 14.5". [4] pp, folded. Caption title [as issued], printed in four columns. Light stain to top margin, Very Good We know of only three other copies of this Extra-- at the Beinecke and the DeGolyer Libraries [as of July 2015], and another on line, The newspaper itself is rare: OCLC 22038311 records nine copies of this weekly, printed between Sept. 27, 1900 and Aug. 4, 1906 [with a brief suspension from July 9 - October 15, 1904]. Four of the nine appear to be microfilms; the others hold individual copies from the series. See, also, 'Chronicling America- Historic American Newspapers' at the web site of the Library of Congress]. This rare Alaska "Extra" sought to lure prospectors and investors to Rampart City during the Klondike Gold Rush. Rampart was founded in 1898, when "news of strikes in Minook Creek, Idaho Bar, Quail Creek, and Eureka Creek... triggered a rush to the community... The boom was short-lived. New strikes in the Upper Koyukuk River, Anvil Creek, Nome and Fairbanks rapidly depleted the population. By 1903 only a Native community remained." ["History of Rampart Alaska," accessed at web site of ExploreNorth.] In 1901 Rampart was in mid-boom, with plenty of opportunity, at least according to this promo packed with articles and news: "Richer than Ever; A New Eldorado; Paystreak is Located; Big Minook; Good Quartz Leads," &c. &c. Rampart is located in the Yukon about 100 miles west of Fairbanks. Its claim to fame today is Rex Beach's 1906 classic bestseller, "The Spoilers," adapted for film five times between 1914 and 1955. Written while Beach lived in Rampart, it exposed the official corruption that victimized prospectors in the Klondike.

        20 Letters reporting events at Ladysmith, the Transvaal, Bloemfontein and elsewhere

      VP including Ladysmith, Geluk Farm, Vluchfontein et al. 1901 - Nine ALS, three TLS, eight carbons. 64 pp in total. Folio & 4to. FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT OF THE SIEGE OF LADYSMITH. A fine group of letters by an English intelligence officer steadily rising through the ranks. In 1899 he is "sleep[ing] in the open air, only one blanket & one waterproof sheet." Within a year he was Lord Roberts' private clerk and in December 1900 he is stationed at the Commander-in-Chief's Office (Kitchener's) doing "confidential military work for the Military Secretary to Lord Kitchener." Although part of the intelligence service, Carter saw more than his share of fighting. He describes the march to Ladysmith, and the action at Elands Laagte Station, noting "a bullet going through the top of my helmet and cutting off some of my hair but without even scratching the skin."The next four letters were written from Ladysmith and provide a full account of the siege. "The Boers had big siege guns mounted on the hills around Ladysmith which quite outclassed our light field guns . [They'd] completely invested Ladysmith & cut the telegraph lines & pulled up the Railway . Then began the long dreary siege." Carter reports using "a lot of pigeons" and the cost of Kaffir and Zulu runners, to get letters out of Ladysmith and at least one of his letters (not here) was published in the Hamilton Spectator.The siege is depicted much like a holiday camp, citing football matches, swimming races, water polo, cricket. "We got so indifferent to the Boer 'snipers' that you would see most of our chaps having an afternoon siesta behind their trenches while bullets would be chipping the stones around them. We also used to organise pools, when we could see some of the Boers, and have a long range shooting match, the man who bowled the first Boer over taking the pool." Yet there is also much on troops movements, information on the Boers, the conditions of Ladysmith, accounts of engaging the enemy, and reflections on the experience of combat: "the actual fighting is all right as the excitement deadens your faculties, but after a battle when . you see your poor companions who a few hours before were joking with you, lying dead or else writhing in the agonies of pain caused by frightful wounds, then you feel your courage leaving you and your nerves getting like wax." The remaining correspondence includes three letters as Carter's regiment treks across the Transvaal through August and September 1900. These too are full of detail of life in the field, bivouacking scouting enemy positions and action: "There was a grand opportunity for our Field Artillery. They simply pumped shrapnel into them, the Artillery Officers going mad at the sight, and shrieking to the gunners 'fire! fire! hurry up you b----- fools, you never had such a chance, fire!' . You could see at every discharge of the guns, the Boers falling, and at the same time our splendid Infantry running for all they were worth trying to get at them with the bayonet . [I]t is very seldom the Boers leave any wounded or dead behind them and it proves how hard we pressed them . It was like a shambles . one, two or more bodies, horribly mutilated by the effects of the Lyddite."The final group commences with Carter being stationed at the Commander-in-Chief's office and he wastes no opportunity to use the special mail service for his own correspondence. He describes Kitchener at work and provides insight to life in the office. Yet beneath this is a yearning for the war to end and a frustration that it can't be done in one swift battle: "We cannot get a good fight out of the beggars they simply have a few shots at us and as soon as we get near enough to do some damage, off they go helter-skelter." This group were all addressed to Carter's long time friend we know only by the name of Jose. Given the warmth and detail included here, it's possible that he was using these letters as a substitute for a diary. Carter served with some distinction in 1st Manchester Regiment and was mentioned in the despatches. V

        Van Diemen's Land Company v Marine Board of Table Cape In the Supreme Court of Tasmania Short Hand Report of Evidence etc

      [Launceston]. [1901]. Large folio. Manuscript title and 550pp of typescript (printed rectos only), prepared for the legal firm of Ritchie and Parker (see below). Half-bound in contrasting cloth with leather spine label (the cloth spine and corners appear to be a replacement of an earlier material, probably leather judging by the label). There are some pencilled annotations and much underlining, but the pages are clean and in very good condition, as is the binding. ***The case of the Van Diemen's Land Company v. Marine Board of Table Cape was before the courts for five years (October 1901 to October 1906), involving one appeal in Tasmania and another to the Privy Council in London, which ordered a re-trial in Tasmania, and incurring costs estimated at &#163;12,000. Though at first glance a relatively minor matter concerning the ownership of a small strip of &#8216;foreshore&#8217; land (that is, between the high and low water marks) at Emu Bay (Burnie), over which the Marine Board of Table Cape had erected a wharf, it was in fact a case to determine the ownership of all of the foreshore land on the Company&#8217;s land (some 150 miles), and by extension all of the foreshore land in the state of Tasmania. The Crown, represented by the distinguished South Australian lawyer (and Senator) Sir Josiah Symon and Edward Dobie, the Solicitor-General, argued the case on behalf of the Marine Board. The VDL Company was represented by George Wilson Waterhouse, of the venerable Launceston firm of Ritchie & Parker, and H.W. Bryant of Victoria. <br> <br>The Company&#8217;s claim was for &#163;500 damages for trespass, although it admitted from the outset that the amount of damages was of little consequence; it was the proof of ownership it sought. The arguments involved the status of the incorporation of the Company by Royal Charter in 1825, and the conditions of the grant of its land, formalised in 1848, as well as much matter involving reclamation of foreshores and the use of materials sourced from these areas (and much more besides; even William the Conquerer even gets a mention). After 18 days of the &#8216;unprecedentedly wearying case&#8217; &#8211; as Mr Justice Clarke described it in his summing up to the jury &#8211; the verdict went in favour of the Crown. An appeal to the full bench of the Court went the same way, but the Company appealed to the Privy Council in London and there won a re-trial. <br> <br>At the re-trial a compromise agreement was reached, after considerable argument, on a basis suggested by the Chief Justice Sir John Dodds. In short, the Company relinquished its claim to ownership of the &#8216;various foreshores&#8217; on the lands granted to it in 1848 and the Crown leased back, for a nominal rental, these areas. The Crown was entitled to resume any portion of these areas for navigation or other public rights, but agreed to prevent any other party from removing material from the foreshore of the Emu Bay block. (See Mercury, 9 October 1906 or North-Western Advocate and Emu Bay Times, 10 October 1906 for a summary of the conclusion of the matter.) The agreement was formalised three years later by an Act of the Tasmanian Parliament (9 Edw VII, no 6). .

        Clara Barton writes a long letter criticizing President William McKinnley who would fall victim to an assassin a few months later

      Oxford, June 21, 1901. 5" x 6.25". "Clara Barton, one of the most honored woman in American history, and whose life's work included initiating programs with Lincoln, lecturing at suffrage events with Susan B. Anthony, and who ultimately founded The American Red Cross, pens a humorous letter to her Secretary, June 1901, regarding President McKinley, as follows: “My dear dear perplexed Secretary….How out of patience and annoyed [you are] that that slow old President either do or say something…”Near fine 4 page autograph letter 5"" x 6.25"", signed on light card stock by ""Clara Barton"". Expected folds.Her jovial letter to her Secretary regarding President McKinleyshows Barton's determined and motivated character “My dear dear perplexed Secretary….How out of patience and annoyed [you are] that that slow old President either do or say something! Ah well my dear child-just smother your passion, lots of things have to be met, and borne with in this Checkered life""At the time of the Explosion of the U. S. S. Maine - ""I am with the wounded,"" Clara Barton telegraphed President William McKinley following the disaster. The blast killed 266 crew members. Two days earlier, she had dined aboard the ship with Captain Charles Sigsbee.Clara Barton was first known as the ""Angel of the Battlefield."" Clara Barton was appointed by Union General Benjamin Butler as the ""lady in charge"" of the hospitals at the front of the Army of the James. Among her more harrowing experiences was an incident in which a bullet tore through the sleeve of her dress without striking her and killed a man to whom she was tending, thus creating her title. Shortly after the Civil War, Miss Barton contacted President Lincoln to be given permission to assist and locate missing men from the war. Lincoln granted her request and Barton initiated the program ""The Search for the Missing Men"" with her and her assistants writing 41,855 replies to inquiries and helped to locate more than twenty-two thousand missing men. Barton climaxed her Civil War activity when she participated in establishing a national cemetery around the graves of the Union men who died in the notorious Andersonville Prison in Georgia. With the help of Dorence Atwater, who had secretly tabulated a list of the dead during his own imprisonment in Andersonville, and a team of 30 military men, Barton identified the graves of nearly 13,000 men.From 1865-1868, Barton achieved widespread recognition by delivering lectures around the country about her war experiences. It was during this time she met Susan B. Anthony and began a long association with the woman's suffrage movement. Barton spoke at many suffrage conventions, including the first ever to be held in Washington, D.C. in 1869At age 60, in 1881, after her long and intense devotion to helping others throughout her career, and with enough personal achievements to fill several ordinary lifetimes, Clara Barton then went on to became the founder of The American Red Cross and actively led it for the next 23 years.
