        Archive of Reminiscences of the Civil War in the West and later life in Oregon and Washington State (21 Letters and 2 Manuscripts)

      - Reminiscences of Greene as recorded in a group of 21 letters, dated 1901 and between 1916-1917 to an old friend, Judge Leander Stillwell of Erie, Kansas; accompanied by two manuscripts by Greene and his calling card as a political candidate in Portland, Oregon, and other places. 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.

Bis 1907 Einbände berieben und bestossen, papierbedingt gebräunt. Die anderen teils sehr gut. - Otto Hupp war Heraldiker, Schriftgrafiker, Kunstmaler und Ziseleur. Einer seiner wichtigsten Wappenentwürfe war das bayerische Staatswappen von 1923 - allerdings wurde es nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg durch eine modernisierte Version ersetzt. Auch andere Landeswappen stammen von seiner Hand z.B. Oberschlesien. Eine weitere heraldische Publikation Otto Hupps waren die Münchner Kalender, von denen 51 Ausgaben in den Jahren 1885-1936 (mit Ausnahme von 1933) erschienen. Die Kalender der Jahre 1885 bis 1894 zeigten Monatswappen mit den Tierkreiszeichen. Ab 1895 konnte sich Otto Hupp mit seiner Idee durchsetzen, anstatt der "abgenutzten Monatszeichen" Wappen der deutschen Fürstenhäuser und in der Folge alljährlich ein doppelblattgroßes Wappen eines deutschen Staates und anschließend jeweils zwölf Wappen großer Adelsgeschlechter zu bringen.

        "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..

        Archive of Reminiscences of the Civil War in the West and later life in Oregon and Washington State (21 Letters and 2 Manuscripts)

      Reminiscences of Greene as recorded in a group of 21 letters, dated 1901 and between 1916-1917 to an old friend, Judge Leander Stillwell of Erie, Kansas; accompanied by two manuscripts by Greene and his calling card as a political candidate in Portland, Oregon, and other places. 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. .

        [Photo Album]: Hunting and Fishing

      Oblong octavo. Flexible cloth with 35 photographs mounted rectos only. Some adhesive used to affix the photos has bled through to the images but all are still easily viewable, overall very good. A very faint inscription on the first leaf with the name William Armstrong and apparently dated in October, 1901, but which is otherwise unreadable. Location not obvious but there is an image of a steamboat with "Scranton" and "Lackawanna Railroad" on the side which might indicate Northern Pennsylvania. Virtually all rural or rustic scenes, with about half of them scenes of hunting and fishing: duck shooting, boating with guns, posing with guns, lolling around the campfire, displaying caught fish whilst drinking beer, and so forth. .

        REBELLION In PHOTOGRAPHY. Illustrated with Photographs by the Writer. Reprinted from the Overland Monthly August, 1901.

      San Francisco: 1901 - 20 b/w reproduced photographic images. Genthe, born in Berlin, emigrated to San Francisco in 1895, where he taught himself the art of photography. Famous for his images of pre-1906 Chinatown, Genthe would later establish himself as a master of portraiture. His subjects would include Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, John D. Rockefeller, Greta Garbo & Isadora Duncan. In this article, written very early in Genthe's career, he presciently declares his admiration for the new camera equipment, which allows for "an unstudied pose and a natural expression." Further, he herein likens photography to art, where the photographer should strive for "the approval of the painter and sculptor." A rare item documenting the artistic philosophy of an acknowledged early 20th C. virtuoso of the photograph. Wrappers soiled. A Very Good copy. Printed dark grey stiff-stock paper wrappers, stapled. 8vo. 10-1/4" x 7". 1st separate printing. Not in the NUC, and OCLC records just one institutional holding: The Huntington. 14, [2 (blank)] pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
