        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. .

        Functionelle Nierendiagnostik, mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der Nierenchirurgie. Klinisch-Experimentelle Untersuchungen.

      - Berlin & Wien, Urban & schwarzenberg, 1901, 8°, (4), 155, (1) pp., 2Holuschnitte, orig. Leinenband; St.a.Tit. Erste Ausgabe! - "Mit Hilfe seines Instrumentenbauers Georg Hirschmann gelang es dem damals 35-jähriger Leopold Casper (1859-1959) durch einen gleitenden Schieber dem Katheter eine Krümmung zu geben, mit deren Hilfe das Einführen in den Harnleiter nun einfach und sicher wurde. - Leopold Casper ging nach dem Studium in Berlin für neun Monate nach London und Wien, um dort speziell urologische und chirurgische Vorlesungen zu hören.58 Nach seiner Rückkehr ließ er sich im Jahr 1885 in seiner Heimatstadt als Arzt nieder.59 Im Jahre 1900 eröffnete er zunächst eine Privatklinik und wurde im Jahre 1908 Belegarzt im Franziskus-Krankenhaus. Viele Ärzte wurden an seiner Klinik ausgebildet, auch Eugen Rehfisch (1862-1937), dessen Rolle bei der Entwicklung der Urodynamik in den letzten Jahren beleuchtet wurde. Der amerikanische Urologe Hugh H. Young kam für zwei Monate nach Berlin, um bei Casper das Zystoskopieren zu erlernen. Um den Harnleiterkatheterismus entbrannte am Ende des 19. Jahrhundert ein Prioritätenstreit zwischen Casper und Nitze, der in der medizinischen Literatur über längere Zeit präsent war. Gemeinsam mit dem Internisten Paul Friedrich Richter (1868-1935) verfasste er die "Funktionelle Nierendiagnostik". - *) Keller1954, p.41 Dazu folgende Bemerkung von Eugen Joseph: "erst durch die Konstruktion, welche Casper dem Instrument gab, indem er dem Ureterkatheter eine Biegung verschaffte, durch die er in den Harnleiter eindrang, wurde die Methodik des Ureterkatheterismus geschaffen."

        Signed Check

      Columbus, Ohio, 1901. unbound. 3 x 8.75 inches, Columbus, Ohio, September 10, 1901. This exceedingly rare document signed "Brice Custer" is a check drawn on the Columbus Savings Bank Co. in Columbus, Ohio -- a payment to the order of Brice Custer for the amount of $48.00, boldly signed on the back. History has shown that Brice took great pain in hiding his brother&#39;s secret, including hiding the facts from Elizabeth Custer, the General&#39;s wife and his greatest champion. After graduating from High School, Josiah moved to Oklahoma to live with his mother "Monahseetah," who had since married a white man named John Isaac. Recent historical information has surfaced indicating that Custer had married "Monahseetah" (Daughter of Chief Black Kettle) in a traditional Cheyenne marriage ceremony. Historian Gregory Michno, who was skeptical of the story, includes it in his LAKOTA NOON: The Indian Narrative of Custer&#39;s Defeat (1997), a Cheyenne account that insists not only upon the relationship between Custer and "Monahseetah" and upon the existence of a child, but also that both were present in the Indian village of Lakota&#39;s and Cheyenne that Custer fatally attacked at the Little Big Horn River in 1876. Michael A. Elliot examines the matter further in his acclaimed book "Custerology: The Enduring Legacy of the Indian Wars," University of Chicago Press, 2008, confirming that Brice secretly raised General Custer&#39;s Indian child <a href="http://www.argosybooks.com/shop/argosy/144.html?id=eF2SBywe">, but adds: "Gail Kelly-Custer delivered a paper at the 2004 meeting of the Western Historical Association entitled &#39;General Custer&#39;s Secret Indian Family, or How I Discovered My Heritage.&#39;" Kelly-Custer presented evidence in the form of extensive research and documentation in support of her thesis, including an affidavit that Brice Custer had raised Yellow Bird from infancy. Last there is a well-known interview, circa 1920s with "Brave Bear," a Cheyenne warrior who was present at Little Big Horn. He was asked: "Yellow Bird was fathered by the white soldier-chief?" "It is so," Brave Bear answered. "The soldier-chief who had yellow locks hanging to his shoulders, the one we called Long Hair." A true rarity by the one Custer brother that actually altered history, for over a century. Brothers Thomas and Boston Custer were killed at Little Big Horn along with the General. Very good condition. Older brother of George Armstrong Custer who, upon an arrangement with the General, agreed to raise his male Indian child "Yellow Bird" in Ohio in the event of his death. Brice did so, calling him Josiah Custer.

        The Lord of the Sea

      London: Grant Richards,, 1901. Octavo. Original tan cloth, titles to spine in black, decoration and titles to front board in red and black, top edge gilt. Small reference number to rear free endpaper in red pencil. Spine very faintly toned, fore edge of text and endpapers block lightly foxed. An excellent copy with contents bright and fresh. First edition, first impression, of a key Shiel mystery in which the world&#39;s seaways are ruled by an English farmer. This is the preferred issue with the initial blank extant. The Lord of the Sea was an immediate literary sensation, thanks to its "grandiose sweep of imagination, the vigour and inventiveness of [its] prose, and Shiel&#39;s surreal images of obsession, hysteria, and horror" (ODNB). An exceptional copy.

All Saint&#39;s turned against him in 1898 after 21 years of service, and greatly reduced his stipend from $900 per annum to $1; he sued and won. ; Mair, the member of the Canada First Movement, opposed the Provincial Government of Louis Riel&#39;s Red River Rebellion of 1869-70, and the North-West Rebellion of 1885, he was taken prisoner, escaped, and subsequently raised the force that eventually took Riel down ; "The first edition of &#39;Tecumseh&#39;, published in Toronto in 1886, had a quick sale, but, not being stereotyped, ran out of print, and a reissue is now called for. The author has often been asked to republish his youthful venture, entitled &#39;Dreamland and other poems&#39;, only a limited number of copies of which saw the light. Whilst the edition was passing through the binder&#39;s hands in Ottawa, and the author himself in the then wilderness of Prince Rupert&#39;s Land, the greater part of it was burnt in the Desbrats fire of 1869. In the following pages (Part II) the major portion of that unfortunate volume is included, with such revision as seemed desirable." --preface ; an important work of Canadian literature ; only 5 copies held: at Princeton, University of British Columbia, Vancouver Public, University of Western Ontario and the University of New Brunswick St. John ; rare ; near FINE.

        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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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. .

      Columbus, Ohio 1901 - Older brother of George Armstrong Custer who, upon an arrangement with the General, agreed to raise his male Indian child "Yellow Bird" in Ohio in the event of his death. Brice did so, calling him Josiah Custer. 3 x 8.75 inches, Columbus, Ohio, September 10, 1901. This exceedingly rare document signed "Brice Custer" is a check drawn on the Columbus Savings Bank Co. in Columbus, Ohio -- a payment to the order of Brice Custer for the amount of $48.00, boldly signed on the back. History has shown that Brice took great pain in hiding his brother's secret, including hiding the facts from Elizabeth Custer, the General's wife and his greatest champion. After graduating from High School, Josiah moved to Oklahoma to live with his mother "Monahseetah," who had since married a white man named John Isaac. Recent historical information has surfaced indicating that Custer had married "Monahseetah" (Daughter of Chief Black Kettle) in a traditional Cheyenne marriage ceremony. Historian Gregory Michno, who was skeptical of the story, includes it in his LAKOTA NOON: The Indian Narrative of Custer's Defeat (1997), a Cheyenne account that insists not only upon the relationship between Custer and "Monahseetah" and upon the existence of a child, but also that both were present in the Indian village of Lakota's and Cheyenne that Custer fatally attacked at the Little Big Horn River in 1876. Michael A. Elliot examines the matter further in his acclaimed book "Custerology: The Enduring Legacy of the Indian Wars," University of Chicago Press, 2008, confirming that Brice secretly raised General Custer's Indian child , but adds: "Gail Kelly-Custer delivered a paper at the 2004 meeting of the Western Historical Association entitled 'General Custer's Secret Indian Family, or How I Discovered My Heritage.'" Kelly-Custer presented evidence in the form of extensive research and documentation in support of her thesis, including an affidavit that Brice Custer had raised Yellow Bird from infancy. Last there is a well-known interview, circa 1920s with "Brave Bear," a Cheyenne warrior who was present at Little Big Horn. He was asked: "Yellow Bird was fathered by the white soldier-chief?" "It is so," Brave Bear answered. "The soldier-chief who had yellow locks hanging to his shoulders, the one we called Long Hair." A true rarity by the one Custer brother that actually altered history, for over a century. Brothers Thomas and Boston Custer were killed at Little Big Horn along with the General. Very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
