Allen was born near Lexington, Kentucky, and his youth there during the Ante-bellum, Civil War, and Reconstruction periods heavily influenced his writing. He graduated from Transylvania University in 1872, delivering the Salutatorian address in Latin. In 1893 Allen moved to New York City, where he lived until his death. He was a contributor to Harper's Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, and other popular magazines of the time. Condition: The binding is tight and firm.

        Collection of 36 Autograph Letters, signed, from Alexander Gunn to William C. Whitney, and 2 letters from acquaintances of Gunn to Whitney and Senator Mark Hanna

      n.p., ca. 1883-1901 - Gunn, a friend of William C. Whitney, McKinley, and Mark Hanna, was a wealthy Cleveland businessman who retired to spend the last 20 years of his life in Zoar, the commune in Ohio. His note-books, covering 1883-1901, were discovered after Gunn's death, edited by Don Seitz and published by WILLIAM COLLINS WHITNEY. Wesson, in MIDLAND NOTES, states: "Gunn's notes provide us with an enchanting picture of the pellucid life in the famous community of which he became a member. Though he fought to the last for the preservation of the community which he loved so dearly, ironically enough, it was his fireside stories of life in the land of flesh-pots that resulted in its dissolution by the dissatisfied younger members." The Zoar Society originated after 1817, when approximately 350 German immigrants, mostly poor, came to eastern Ohio and settled on a tract of 5,000 acres of land, along the banks of the Tuscarawas River. They were comprised of both Lutherans and Roman Catholics, who were coming to America to escape persecution. Joseph Bimeler was a teacher who became their political and religious leader. The village was named after the biblical city to which Lot fled from Sodom and Gomorrah. Under the community Articles of Association, the earnings of every individual were to be turned over to a common treasury. While some families remained intact, there were some families which were broken up due to poverty, so that some homes were comprised only of men, while others were comprised only of women. The primary occupation in the community was farming, producing food for the community and for sale. Gunn was was taken with Zoar and at the time of his retirement, the Society gave him the right to occupy one of the cabins in the northeast end of town, which Gunn named "The Hermitage." Gunn was the first "outsider" to be allowed into the village as a resident. He soon remodeled and furnished The Hermitage in luxury, and it became a fabulous club house where he did a great deal of entertaining. Among his guests were men such as William Whitney of New York and Mark Hanna of Cleveland. Most of these letters were written while Gunn was at Zoar, many on "Zoar Society" stationery, others headed "The Hermitage." Gunn refers to Whitney several times as his best friend, and several of the letters offer anxious inquiries about the health of Whitney's wife, Flora, and deep condolences after her death. In a letter dated April 23, 1900, Gunn tells Whitney of the arrival of the book "The Cookbook by Oscar of the Waldorf," which included several of Gunn's cocktail recipes and which was inscribed to him by Oscar Tschirky; he transcribes the recipes for Whitney. Other letters are written from abroad: Paris, San Francisco, Santa Barbara. Gunn sends Whitney a leaf from his journal, written at Lake Como in 1883. Also included is a telegram from Gunn to Whitney, dated April 29, 1901, shortly before Gunn's death, requesting that Whitney arrange to pick him up at the New York train station and transport him to a hospital. Gunn died shortly thereafter (ZOAR, OHIO) In all, 39 letters vols., Various sizes. . Generally in very good condition, some with original envelopes [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A Masque of Days from the Last Essays of Elia

      London - Cassell and Company, 1901. London - Cassell and Company, 1901 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of this lovely book, based on the popular Last Essays of Elia by Charles Lamb. The essays in the collection first began appearing in The London Magazine in 1820 and continued to 1825. Lamb's essays were highly popular and were printed in many subsequent editions throughout the nineteenth century. The personal and conversational tone of the essays has charmed many readers; the essays established Lamb in the title he now holds, that of the most delightful of English essayists. With beautiful colour illustrations by Walter Crane on every page. Walter Crane (18451915) was an English artist and book illustrator. His work featured some of the more colourful and detailed beginnings of the child-in-the-garden motifs that would characterize many nursery rhymes and children's stories for decades to come. He was part of the Arts and Crafts movement and produced an array of paintings, illustrations, children's books, ceramic tiles and other decorative arts. Condition: In decorative paper-covered boards. Externally sound, with just some light rubbing. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        "Kallmünz" originales Ölgemälde auf Leinwand ca. 109x80cm; verso auf dem Keilrahmen handschriftlich bezeichnet und datiert "1902" [Maße im originalen, an einer Ecke etwas bestoßenen Schellack-Rahmen 125x95,5cm.]

      . Der aus München angereiste Maler und Professor Charles Johann Palmie erkor 1901 einen neu eröffneten Gasthof in Kallmünz zu seinem Domizil während der Sommerfrische. Dem Wirtshaus gab er auch selbst den Namen "Zur Roten Amsel" und illustrierte seine Außenfassade mit seinen Münchner Freunden al fresco. Palmie nannte Kallmünz die "Perle des Naabtals". Kallmünz wurde alsbald zu einem landschaftlich inspirierenden Anziehungspunkt für Maler, die sich hier in immer größerer Zahl einfanden und teilweise auch dauerhaft niederließen. Schon 1901 zählte die Künstlerkolonie 38 Maler. Am bekanntesten wurde Kallmünz durch den mehrwöchigen Aufenthalt Wassily Kandinskys und Gabriele Münters im Sommer 1903 [Quelle: wikipedia].

      Berlin: Berliner Elektrizitäts-Werke 17. Oktober 1901.. Ca. 39,5 x 42 cm. (mit Korrekturen und teilweisen Löschungen von alter Hand, etwas gebräunt, insgesamt gut erhalten) Unikat! Sicher nur für interne Zwecke des Stromversorgers oder der städtischen Verwaltung angefertigt. Offensichtlich zeigt der Plan die Projektierung oder die gerade fertiggestellte Ausrüstung mit elektrischen Leuchten im ööffentlichen Straßenland und ist somit ein einzigartiges Dokument für die Technikgeschichte Berlins! Die Karte zeigt die Platzierung der elektrischen Strassenbeleuchtung und den Leitungsverlauf im Bereich Alsenviertel (Reichstag, Krolloper, Spreebogen), südlich bis Potsdamer Platz und Potsdamer Brücke, mitte und östlich bis Unter den Linden und Schloß, südöstlich bis zur Fischerinsel. Wie lange diese Straßenbeleuchtung in Berlin betrieben wurde, konnten wir nicht eruieren. Jahrzehntelang jedenfalls wurden die Straßenlaternen mit Gas betrieben. Seit Frühjahr 2012 läßt der Berliner Senat die öffentliche Beleuchtung wieder auf elektrischen Betrieb umrüsten, dieses mal mit Energiesparlampen.

        The Tonalamatl of the Aubin Collection. An Old Mexican Picture Manuscript in the Paris National Library (Manuscrits Mexicains No. 18-19). Published at the Expense of His Excellency the Duke of Loubat. With Introduction and Explanatory Text by Dr. Eduard Seler

      Berlin and London: A.H. Keane, 1901. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. English-language edition. 11 x 12.5 inches, oblong. pp. [ii], 132, [18 leaves printed rectos only], [133]-146, [1]. Rear pocket containing folding full-color facsimile of the codex, 18 plates on 5 folding sheets (four sheets with 4 panels each, one sheet with 2 panels). Indexed, with many illustrations in the text. Each plate measures approximately 10.25 x 11.5 inches. Ex-library, in a buckram library binding with title stamped on upper board. Various old ownership markings, title page creased and repaired, text otherwise sound and clean. Plates a bit toned, with some repairs to the verso along the folds, but generally very good. Text includes an introduction describing how the book came to be produced, a history and description of the manuscript, and a detailed explanation and analysis of the content of each manuscript page. "The Aubin Tonalamatl is a Nahuatl codex which consists of eighteen screen-folded pages on maguey bark paper. It is constructed out of thirteen bark pieces that were pasted together, and it is meant to be read from right to left . It contains the 260 symbols that represent the tonalpohualli, or the count of days. The codex would originally have been 20 pages long, but the first two pages have been lost. The pages are painted on one side and the contents relate to divination, recording the omens associated with particular days. It seems to have originated in the Mexican state of Tlaxcala" (Donna Yates, citing Frederick Starr's review in American Anthropolgist, 1904).
