        The Golliwogg's 'Auto-Go-Cart'

      Longmans Green and Co, London 1901 - 66pp. 30 full-page colour illustrations [1 double page]. In the name of political correctness, Upton's wonderful golliwog - heroic, gentle, gallant and resourceful - has been lumped together with stereotypes and condemned out of hand. In fact, when picture books were filled with images of white-skinned, golden-haired, blue-eyed children, Upton was the first to use an Afro-Caribbean character as the main protagonist. VG : in very good condition without dust jacket. Slight edge-rubbing. Slight loosening. No inscriptions or marks Hardback: Illustrated board cover with green cloth spine [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Spectator

      J. B. Millet Company, London 1901 - Eight volumes, complete. Includes Appendices (3), Corrigenda, and General Index to the volumes Octavo. bound in three-quarter green morocco over marbled boards, decorated with delicate flowers on spines a and covers, lettered in gilt, spines with raised bands and extra gilt, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. With forty original portraits and eight sketches by Railton; some plates in colour. No. 88 of 200 numbered sets. The Spectator was a literary magazine of some note in 16th century London and England, founded by Sir Richard Steele and Joseph Addison. It succeeded "The Tatler" which Steele had begun in 1709. "The Spectator" set out to inform its readers as well as impart and instruct in morality and aesthetics. It's motto was "Enliven With with Morality and to temper Wit with Morality". It used a unique method of presenting the stories, through a "Spectator Club" with imaginary members. Those members, who included representatives of commerce, the army, the town extolled the author's own ideas about society.Addison and Steele met at Charterhouse [school] and formed a lifelong friendship. Steele was the son of a solicitor in Dublin, born in March 1672 and Addison's father was the Dean of Lichfield, born almost two months earlier. Steele's father died when he was about five and through his guardian, Henry Gascoigne, he was sent to Charterhouse. Steele was welcomed in Addison's home and felt like one of the family. Both went to Oxford although Addison was the only one who took a degree; they went their different ways for several years and then found themselves both in London in 1704.Despite a modest daily circulation of approximately 3,000 copies, The Spectator was widely read; Joseph Addison estimated that each number was read by 60,000 Londoners, about a tenth of the capital's population at the time. Contemporary historians and literary scholars, meanwhile, do not consider this to be an unreasonable claim; most readers were not themselves subscribers but patrons of one of the subscribing coffeehouses. These readers came from many stations in society, but the paper catered principally to the interests of England's emerging middle classÑmerchants and traders large and small. -from WikipediaVolume I of the set begins with "The Spectator. No. 1, Thursday, March 1, 1711" and ends with "No. 635, Monday, Dec. 20, 1714" in volume VIII. Spines faded to brown, slight rubbing to extremities, else fine [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Die Kalender der Jahre 1885 bis 1894 zeigten Monatswappen mit den Tierkreiszeichen.

        "Zaungäste" originales Gemälde Öl auf Holzplatte ca. 39,5x60,5cm; rechts unten signiert; um 1925

      . [Maße im aufwendig gearbeiteten und blattvergoldeten Holzrahmen (52x73cm) der renommierten Münchner Fachwerkstatt Petzenhammer.] Der Maler, Sohn eines Färbermeisters, erhielt seine künstlerische Ausbildung seit 1901 an der Berliner Kunstakademie. Anschließend studierte Bergmann an der Münchner Akademie bei Ludwig v.Herterich und seit 1905 in der Tiermalklasse Heinrich v. Zügels, der seit 1895 an dem Institut lehrte. 1907 wurde Bergmann Meisterschüler Zügels und hielt sich mit ihm in den Sommermonaten in dem Fischerdorf Wörth am Rhein auf, wo Zügel eine bedeutende Malschule betrieb. Von 1909 bis 1910 rundete Bergmann in Paris seine Studien ab und unternahm weitere Reisen nach Nordafrika, Dänemark, Norwegen, Ungarn und Österreich. 1912 nahm er seinen festen Wohnsitz in Haimhausen bei Dachau. 1925 eröffnete Bergmann selbst eine private, staatlich anerkannte Malschule bei Dachau, die er seit 1926 in einem neu erbauten Atelierhaus abhielt. Max Bermann ist in erster Linie Tiermaler (Kühe, Ochsen), er war aber auch ein bedeutender Porträtist, Blumen- und Stillebenmaler. Auch mit religiöser Thematik befaßte er sich, so gibt es Darstellungen des Gekreuzigten von seiner Hand. Bergmann bevorzugte einen hellen, leuchtenden Kolorismus und einen pastosen und breitpinseligen Farbauftrag sowie die offene malerische Form. Wie auch bei seinem Lehrer Zügel kommen in seinen Gemälden die Tiere oft aus der Bildtiefe direkt auf den Betrachter zu. Der Maler gehört zu den deutschen Impressionisten der späten Phase..

Various sizes. The 21 letters comprise 75 pages, both typed and holograph, approximately 15,000 words. The two manuscripts, one a typescript, the other in holograph, are 17 pages each comprising approximately 4000 words; the calling card, which measures 2.5" x 4", presents Greene as a candidate for the 1916 Republican nomination for a state assembly seat in Stevenson, Washington - he lost by 24 votes.A rich collection of letters and manuscripts, offering detailed accounts of personal experience in the Civil War in the West, displaying a literary bent. Some pages frayed around the edges, other modest wear and soiling, but overall very good or better. Albert R. Greene (1842-1918) was a soldier with the 9th Kansas Cavalry during the Civil War, afterwards he worked as journalist, lecturer, Kansas State Senator, Inspector with the Department of the Interior's General Land Office, and Chief of the Division of Forestry in Washington, D.C. In later life he moved west, living in Stevenson, Washington, and Portland, Oregon, from where most of these letters were written.Several of the letters recount detailed specifics from his Civil War service, including details of battles at Pittsburg Landing (Shiloh) in Tennessee,and of battles at Prairie Grove, Little Rock, and at DuVall's Bluff in Arkansas, including details from notes that he kept during the war. One letter recounts his witnessing of the execution of a deserter from the 22nd Ohio at DuVall's Bluff; he describes crossing a newly built pontoon bridge south of town, and of skirmishing all day on September 8, 1864; capturing rebel prisoners, and being fired upon from the canebrakes as his company floated down river. At Prairie Grove, he reports that the Union forces under Blunt lit hundreds of campfires in the evening to make the Rebels think many reinforcements had arrived, but then withdrew from the hills just as the Confederates under Hinman were muffling their wagon wheels with blankets while withdrawing the other way.Green returned to Pittsburg Landing in later years and spoke with a descendant of the family in whose house General Grant was quartered during the battle. She was a young girl at the time and recounted how calmly Grant ate his breakfast to the sound of cannon fire before riding off to join his troops. In another letter, Green asks for information on the killing of Confederate recruiting officers by a band of Osage Indians south of Cherryvale, Kansas.The correspondence is full of literary discussions mentioning Greene's attempts to get his stories and historical essays published, his testimony in land fraud cases, a story he was writing regarding the opening of Kiowa-Comanche lands to settlement in 1901, and reports on lumber production in the Western states spurred by the requirements of the Allies in World War I. He also describes the mustering of some 60,000 troops under the command of Maj. General Henry Augustus Greene in 1917 and comments on how much better fed and provisioned the troops were then than during his Civil War days, remembering the test for beef in the summer of 1864: "throw it against the side of an army wagon; if it stuck it was for us; if it rolled off on the ground, it was for the officers!"The two manuscripts offer samples of Greene's skills: one is a short history of the rise and fall of Lecompton, the territorial capital of Kansas in the pre-Civil War era and a victim of the conflicts between free-staters and pro-slavery advocates in "Bleeding Kansas"; the other is a memoir of a veteran of the Napoleonic Wars who worked on his father's farm in Illinois. [See Dornbusch Kansas 34 ("Campaigning in the Army of the Frontier"), 35 ("On the battle of Wilson Creek"), and 36 ("What I saw of the Quantrill raid") for three published works on the Civil War written by Greene].The recipient of the material, Judge Stillwell (1843-1934), was also a veteran of the Civil War, fighting in an Illinois regiment and recording his experiences in his memoir, The Story of a Common Soldier of Army Life in the Civil War, 1861-1865 (Erie, Kansas, 1920). Stillwell moved to Kansas following the war and had an active legal practice there until retirement. .
