        KIM

      1901. London: Macmillan and Co., 1901. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth with Ganesha device in gilt. First English Edition of the book that "is acknowledged as Kipling's masterpiece in fiction... The novel is the finest written about the India of the British Empire" [CGEL]. It follows the adventures of an orphan son of a British soldier who is raised by an Indian woman, becomes a disciple to a Lama, and ultimately becomes an undercover agent as well. The illustrations are by John Lockwood Kipling, the author's father. The American edition is considered to have been published earlier (though in the same month as the English one).~As with most of Kipling's British editions published by Macmillan, the binding is red cloth with in gilt the "Ganesha" device -- an elephant's head with a swastika (the latter had been a ubiquitous symbol in India for millennia; its use ceased in the early 1930s, when events in Germany gave the symbol a whole new meaning).~This is a near-fine copy (light rubbing at the edges, a little foxing on the page edges only). Richards A174; Stewart 254; Livingston 250. One of the books selected as a "Modern Library 100" for the 20th Century.

        The Cruise of the Petrel: A Story of 1812

      McClure, Phillips & Co, New York 1901 - First edition. Gray cloth stamped in black in white with a picture of a frigate at sea illustrated by Florence Pearl Nosworthy. Very good with slight darkening of the spine, front hinge cracked, light foxing on endpapers, still an attractive copy. Inscribed by the author on the front fly: "To C.C. Converse, from his friend, T. Jenkins Hains, Sept 26, 03, Echo Boy, Yacht Edna." Seven relatable newspaper clippings laid in on preliminary pages causing some offsetting. Also, tipped in is a silver gelatin photograph of the author behind the ship's wheel, posing with a male and two female companions (one of which may be Amelie Troubetzkoy). An added bonus to this already phenominal item is a small piece of paper affixed to the page preceding the contents with the signature of the author and poet, Amelie Troubetzkoy.Thornton Jenkins Hains, 1866-1953, was an American novelist who found popularity with his nautical tales. His maternal grandfather, Admiral Thornton A. Jenkins, served in the War of 1812 and Hains used the logbooks he kept as inspiration for The Cruise of the Petrel. Hains is mostly remembered for his part in the "Regatta Murder", the killing of William Annis by Hains' brother, Peter C. Hains. Peter's wife was having an affair with Annis and it was Thornton that told his brother this information. This resulted in Peter murdering Annis at the Ladies' Regatta while his brother stood watch. Although not convicted of any crime the event soiled his reputation and he adopted the pen name Mayn Clew Garnett from then on. A scarce and intriguing copy of an interesting title.

Appears to have fresh endpapers. Spine ends and corners bruised and chafed, lower edges rubbed with a few light bumps, upper front corner of Vol II spot faded, page edges darkened and there is a one inch spot of browning to fore-edge of Vol. I affecting outer margin of about 20 pages.

        A Complete Diary of My Work while a Member of the New York Police Department from August 17, 1896, to, and including August 29, 1898

      Very Good. Folio. 152 numbered and lined, else blank pages. Disbound with boards present, some modest staining in the text not marring any text, overall about very good. Detailed handwritten diary of Patrolman Abraham W. Skidmore, Jr. Skidmore provides a legible and reasonably thorough account of his activities for each day, usually comprising of between three and five days to a folio page, but on occasion taking a page or more on particularly eventful days. Also laid in are relevant clippings or other material referring to arrests or cases he was involved in (calling him "William Skidmore"). The clippings are usually tipped in at the relevant places, thus not obscuring the text. Skidmore's begins at the first entry addressing his application to the Department to its Superintendent Theodore Roosevelt (here referred to as "President Theodore Roosevelt" suggesting that this was compiled by Skidmore sometime around or after 1901). He relates the (rather rapid) process of becoming a police officer, including an interview with Roosevelt. After he is given probationary status he leads a lively life - catching thieves, arresting various immigrants (often Irish) for fighting, public drunkenness, and other offenses. He was often called upon to intervene in domestic disputes, hustled off frequently to fires, catches runaway horses and horse-pulled wagons, accompanied prisoners to jail or the work house, and otherwise proved an effective officer. He was not however, afraid to acknowledge his shortcomings, recounting being reprimanded for a violation of the state liquor tax law, and with a small newspaper clipping noting the reprimand.Born in Canarsie, Brooklyn, Skidmore (1872 - 1958) remained in the NYPD for at least a quarter of a century. Apparently he was effective, because in 1925 he became the first Chief of Police (and later Commissioner) of the Nassau County Police Department. By the time of his retirement in 1945, that Department had grown from 55 to 650 officers.What must certainly be an uncommon and detailed personal account of a police officer in New York City at the end of the 19th Century.

        Theodor Herzl Supports Yiddish Version of His Zionist Newspaper Die Welt

      Vienna 1901 - Typed Letter Signed, on the need to support the Yiddish version of the Zionist Paper Die Welt. One page, in German, to his "colleagues" of the Zionist movement. Countersigned by Oskar Marmorek, the secretary of the Actions Committee. March 3, 1901, Vienna. "You understand that the Yiddish edition of the World arose from the need to reach those social strata that were not reached by the German World. It was absolutely necessary to create a periodical which would in a reliable and faithful manner report on Zionist events and the Zionist requirements."Though his newspaper Die Welt linked together supporters across three continents. Herzl recognized that, for his vision of a Jewish homeland to become a reality, Western and Eastern Jews would need to join forces, as would the literati and the Yiddish-speaking man-in-the-street. This letter supports Di Velt, the short-lived Yiddish edition launched in 1900, one of Herzl's attempts to bridge class, cultural and linguistic gaps. Full Translation Vienna, 3 March 1901.Dear Colleague!You understand that the Yiddish edition of the World arose from the need to reach those social strata that were not reached by the German World [Die Welt]. It was absolutely necessary to create a periodical which would in a reliable and faithful manner report on Zionist events and the Zionist requirements. As well as the German World emanated from the advocacy for the Bank, so the Yiddish World should be an official broadside of the Zionist organization's will. This purpose has been fulfilled admirably, although a similar scale event was not yet possible. For this reason some Comrades have again taken on the substantive requirements. However, these requirements are growing day by day. So were complaints from the Russian side that the circular is not written in Russian dialect. Instantly the redaction was made by Mr. Rosenfeld who, although the budget could not bear a larger load, garnered at our request the most outstanding Yiddish writers for the World.It cannot now correspond to the dignity of our Party, and is not in their interests, that some Comrades' needs are left without any support. At least we must demand that our trustees vigorously pursue the moral advocacy for the Yiddish World, as we have always done in similar cases. We ask you that you as forcefully but politely, conduct this advocacy forthwith. The value of reliable publications will increase significantly, if practical results of our achievements are set upon.

Except for the opening day, when the court announced the charges, and the final day, when the jury made its decision, the trial was held in secret. Having attended both sessions and conducting his own research, Herzl became convinced of Dreyfus's innocence. He deduced that the sole reason that Dreyfus was charged was that he was a Jew. Herzl concluded that anti-Semitism was unavoidable. In 1896, Herzl published Der Judenstaadt, arguing that this was a political problem, and the only solution was the establishment of a Jewish State. A year later, he convened the First Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, where he boldly declared that "Zionism seeks to establish a home for the Jewish people in Palestine secured under public law." His efforts came to fruition 50 years later, when David Ben-Gurion read Israel's Proclamation of Independence in Tel Aviv, beneath Herzl's picture.The recipient, Alexander Marmorek (1865-1923) was a pioneering bacteriologist whose medical a.
