        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..

      London: Hakluyt Society, 1901. Two volumes, octavo, photographic plates, four maps (two folding) in a pocket; some pages loosening; original blue cloth, rubbed, spines sunned and darkened but a reasonable copy. Translated from the original Spanish manuscripts, comprising six separate accounts of the journey, this is the standard scholarly edition of the narrative of the voyage of Mendaña and his associates aboard the {i Capitana} and the {i Almiranta}, in search of habitable lands off the coast of Peru, and their subsequent discovery of the Solomon Islands. This translation took thirty years to complete before being published by the Hakluyt Society, due to careful cross-referencing of material that was continually coming to light during the process.

        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. .

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire. Année complète 1901.

      Bureaux de la Revue 1901 - - Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1901, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - 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.

        Grand Canyon of Arizona From Hermit Rim Road

      American Lithographic Co., New York - Published by the American Lithography Company of New York City in an edition of 2,500 copies, this spectacular print was sold, with the original oil painted by Thomas Moran in l9l2, to the Santa Fe Railway Company, which copyrighted the image the following year. At the time, Moran was the nation's best known landscape painter, noted especially for his depictions of the Far West and its parks and monuments. The Santa Fe Railway was the first to lay a line to the Grand Canyon, in 1901. To promote tourism, Santa Fe officials later had copies of this lithograph framed and distributed to schools, libraries, civic organizations, and railroad customers throughout the country. The present example, in pristine condition, is one of a small stock of prints held until recently by the Santa Fe company. To the great majority of Americans who did not have the resources or daring to travel to the West, Moran provided this image of the country's infinite potential as symbolized by its dramatic, unique landscape. The artist showed American expansion as a fated conclusion, a glorious destiny indelibly written in the literal stone of the country's landscape. Like so many Americans who found such startling significance in the landscape of the American West, Moran was not a native. He immigrated to the United States with his family in 1844 from his native England. Beginning as a wood engraver's apprentice in Philadelphia, he produced an extraordinarily broad range of works: designs for wood engravings, large dramatic oil paintings, small quiet watercolors, and delicate etchings. One of the most celebrated artists of the day, Moran was intimately in tune with the spirit of his age, and this, combined with his phenomenal artistic talent, accounts for much of his fame. Moran painted out of genuine passion, and was not simply responding to a commercial opportunity. For this reason he was uniquely able to understand and capture visually the symbolic significance of the American landscape, and his imagery resonated strongly with a populace hungry for views to complement their romantic conceptions of the distant frontier. Yet for all of his nostalgia, Moran was a realist. He recognized that the beauty of the West needed no embellishment, and his portrayals and views of the West presented it as it was. Thomas Moran's pictures of the West resonate perhaps even more strongly today than at the time of their production. The optimism visible in his work echoes with the experience of the remainder of the 20th century, and it is with increasing nostalgia for that time of infinite promise that today's viewers regard the artist's work. Moran's images have grown in appeal, rather than wane, and "The Grand Canyon" represents an opportunity to acquire significant work by an unparalleled artist of the American West.
