        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]

        "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].

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).

        THE MASTER KEY

      , 1901. 1901. Cory, F. Y.. An Electrical Fairy Tale. Illustrations by F. Y. Cory. Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrill Company, n.d. [1901]. Original olive green cloth with color plate affixed to front cover. First Edition of this early Baum title, published the year after THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ. The protagonist Rob Joslyn is in fact the author's second son, Robert Stanton Baum (who was 15 when this book was published) -- to whom the book is dedicated. Rob conducts electrical experiments in the attic of his family's home, where, trying to get a cardboard house to light up, he inadvertently "touches the Master Key" thus causing the appearance of The Demon of Electricity -- who tells Rob he may demand three wishes for three consecutive weeks... Included are twelve dramatic color plates.~This copy is in the primary binding with the dramatic flash of light on the front cover, and is in the frequently-encountered third state, with the second line on the copyright page measuring 1 25/32" wide (and with "Brooklyn, N.Y." properly printed at the bottom). This is an unusually fine, bright copy. Schiller #77; Boller #86.
