        Some extracts of the personal diary of Mrs. R.J. Mendenhall. Also press notices, and some early and later correspondence to her, by her, etc

      n.p., n.d.: [likely Minneapolis. 1901.]. Only edition, 8vo, pp. 542; 2 portraits, vignette title-p.; fine copy in orig. black cloth, gilt-lettered spine. Abby Mendenhall was one of the earliest women settlers in Minneapolis, in 1858 a newly opened remote frontier outpost west of the Mississippi. She was one of the founding members of the Sisterhood of Bethany, whose objects were "the promotion of moral purity, helping the tempted, saving the fallen, and providing a home for fallen women" -- at that time a work almost unprecedented and extremely unpopular. She was one of four women to found Bethany Home for unwed mothers; she was its secretary the first year, and after that, the treasurer, from 1877 until her death, a period of 23 years. She was also one of the founding members of the Minneapolis Friends Meeting. She was the wife of Richard Junius Mendenhall, the Minneapolis banker and florist. Laid in is a cabinet photograph of her.

Aquarell, Tuschfeder in Schwarz, stellenweise mit Weiß und Goldbronze gehöht, über Bleistift, oben und unten mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf chamoisfarbenem festem Zeichenpapier, rechts unten signiert und datiert "Peter Becker 1901 ". 28,5:19,3 cm. In Originalpassepartout fest montiert und dort vom Künstler bezeichnet "[Peter Becker 1901]" sowie betitelt.. Der Landschaftsmaler Peter Becker studierte in Frankfurt am Städelschen Kunstinstitut bei F.A. Hessemer (1800-1860), dann bei J. Becker (1810-1872). Anschließen hatte er zeitweise ein Atelier im Deutschordenshaus in Sachsenhausen, wohin sich der Nazarener P. Veit (1793-1877) nach Aufgabe des Direktorats des Städelschen Kunstinstitutes 1843 und ein Teil seiner Anhänger zurückgezogen hatten. Einen gewissen Einfluß hatte die spätromantische Malauffassung von E. von Steinle (1810-1886), mit dem er u.a. die Entwürfe für die Glasfenster des Frankfurter Doms ausführte. 1899 wurde der Künstler zum Professor ernannt. Beckers bevorzugte Technik waren aquarellierte Kohlezeichnungen und Zeichnungen, die während zahlreicher Ausflüge direkt vor der Natur entstanden; Arbeiten in Öl sind seltener. Die Graphische Sammlung des Städelschen Kunstinstitutes Frankfurt am Main besitzt eine große Anzahl seiner Werke, wie auch das dortige Historische Museum.

J'y ai consigné, d'autre part, les résultats des recherches qui, depuis lors, se sont poursuivies jusqu'à ce jour dans mon laboratoire.

      Posiblemente sean los dos primeros dibujos de Picasso publicados. Dos hojas con dibujos de Picasso, en ambos casos firmados: Ruiz. Para ganarse la vida, como otros muchos artistas extranjeros que buscaban fama en la capital francesa, el pintormalagueño tuvo que recurrir al trabajo de ilustrador para revistas como ?Le Frou-Frou?. En aquellos dibujos de 1901 con temática cabaretera, recogidos en la publicación, queda reflejada la influencia de Toulouse-Lautrec. 285 x 205, un volumen con varios números de esta revista satírica-galante, encuadernación muy sencilla en tela y cartoné.

With a portrait frontispiece, 77 photos, and 2 maps (one large and outlined in color in a rear pocket). 8vo, original blue cloth gilt lettered and pictorially decorated on the spine and upper cover. xvi, 356. A fine and bright copy with only very light mellowing to the cloth and minor typical foxing to the pastedown and free-fly. VERY SCARCE. The Sherbro was one of the great revenue-producing regions of Britain's Sierra Leone colony.

The author, who was Commissioner at Sherbro, discusses these indigenous products as well as secret societies, ordeals and punishments, various chiefs and treaties, and the Mendi rising of 1898.

        Up from Slavery: An Autobiography

      New York: Doubleday Page. 1901. First. First edition. Octavo. Red cloth gilt. A little rubbing at the extremities, a couple of leaves a little roughly opened resulting in small nicks at the page edges, else a very near fine copy with the gilt bright. Inscribed by the author shortly after publication on the front pastedown: "To Mr. Joel Chandler Harris with kind wishes of Booker T. Washington, April 14, 1901" and underscored with a flourish. Harris clearly read the book and has scored many passages in pencil. He was impressed with Washington upon hearing him speak at the Cotton States and International Exposition in 1895. Washington in turn admired Chandler's Uncle Remus for its symbolic message of wisdom and kindness about blacks, and lauded him (in a letter and a speech) for a series of progressive articles on race relations published in the Saturday Evening Post. In a 1909 letter sent along with a donation for the creation for a Harris memorial, Washington wrote: "It was my pleasure to know him personally. He was one of the best and most helpful friends my race ever had anywhere in the country." Chandler died in 1908, after that his house "The Wren's Nest" was maintained by his family. In 1913 they called in a local institution to remove any valuable books, this obviously was not among them. Neither does it appear in the census of his library The Library of Joel Chandler Harris: An Annotated Checklist that included both the books that they took, and the books that were left behind at "The Wren's Nest." Our supposition is that Chandler was impressed enough with the book to pass it on to others. The book has been in the library of an Atlanta collector for nearly half a century. A spectacular association copy of an African-American high spot from one Blockson 101 author to another. .

A good copy, in half morocco slipcase and chemise. First edition, in the primary binding. The edition consisted of 2000 copies, spread amongst several binding lots.

On the front endsheet appears a small ink date: "Jan. 16, 1901," and in the early same hand, on the verso of the same leaf as bears Shaw's card, appears the following: "Written by the author in Ellen Terry's copy of Three Plays for Puritans 'To Ellen Terry - my Lady Cicely. Who thought it would be all the same - (but it wasn't) if she played Volumnia instead.'" The bookplate is that of one "Lindsay Jardine." LAURENCE A46a.
