        [Original Calligraphic Manuscript of:] TO HOPE

      [London: Percy J. Smith, April 1901].. 7 leaves, recto and verso. 12mo (15 x 11.5 cm). In black ink, with red titling, ornaments and initials, on paper (watermarked "O.W.P. & A.O.L."). Bound in stiff vellum, with hand-lettered title on upper board. Vellum a trifle soiled, very good or better. Folding case. An original calligraphic rendering of Keats's poem by the skilled calligrapher, typographer, painter, etcher and artist of the Great War. Smith studied at Camberwell College of Arts & Crafts under Edward Johnson. He served in the Great War with the Royal Marine Artillery at the Western Front in France and later Belgium, an experience from whence came his remarkable series of etchings depicting trench combat. He established the Dorian (later Dorno) Workshop & Studio, served as a consultant to Heinemann, and specialized in typographic design. He continued to pursue his work as a visual artist alongside his career as typographer and calligrapher. Among his most notable projects was the four year commission for the lettering of the Canadian War Memorial at Vimy Ridge. He was a Fellow or member of a number of professional societies of artists, as well as of the Society of Calligraphers and the Double Crown Club. This manuscript dates from quite early on in his career and may have been a project while he was a student. It is expressly dated and signed in the form of a colophon. The front free endsheet bears pencil identifications, as well as Smith's address, in an unknown hand. Smith's calligraphic manuscript appear to be uncommon in commerce: ABPC records one sale, that of a 1907 rendering of selections from Shakespeare, 14 leaves, sold in 1977. The provenance of this manuscript, according to the slipcase made for the subsequent owner, includes the Justin G. Turner manuscript sale.

        With the Flag to Pretoria:

      00 00, 1901 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A uniformly bound complete four volume set ofWilson's With the Flag to Pretoria: A History of the Boer War 1899-1900 and After Pretoria: The Guerilla War. The Supplement to With the Flag to Pretoria together with V. R. I Her Life and Empire by the Marquisof Lorne, K. T. , now His Grace the Duke of Argyll. In five volumes complete. The first two volumes are illustrated mainly from photographs and authentic sketches taken in South Africa, including an illustration to frontispiece of volume one of 'Her Majesty The Queen Visiting Her Wounded Soldiers. ' With a colour foldout map to front of bothvolume I and II. The second two volumes have many illustrations, mainly from photographs taken at the seat of war. Herbert Wrigley Wilson (1866 - 12 July 1940), known often only as H. W. Wilson, was a British journalist and naval historian. The Second Boer War and the earlier, much less well known, First Boer War (December 1880 - March 1881) are collectively known as the Boer Wars. The Second Boer War was fought from 11 October 1899 until 31 May 1902 between the British Empire and the Afrikaans-speaking Dutch settlers of two independent Boer republics, the South African Republic and the Orange Free State. It ended with a British victory and the annexation of both republics by the British Empire; both would eventually be incorporated into the Union of South Africa, a dominion of the British Empire, in 1910. The conflict is commonly referred to as The Boer War but is also known as the South African War outside South Africa, the Anglo-Boer War among most South Africans. V. R. I Her Life and Empire has an illuminated decorative colour title page and is illustrated throughout with illustrations and photographs of the life ofQueenVictoria with objects of interest such as a note written from her to her mother. Condition: Uniformly bound in half calf but with cloth covered boards. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities and slight rubbing and marks to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Bright but with occasional slight spotting, in particular to text block edge, slight foxing to first and last few pages. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON

      1901 - [the true first edition, FINE] With Many Pictures by E. Hering. Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrill Company, n.d. [1901]. Original dark blue cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition (American), preceding the London edition by about a month. To quote from Smith's biography:~.the moon has long had a leading place in the minds and myths of humans. Jules Verne had written one such fantasy in the 1880s [sic - actually 1865] in his VOYAGE TO THE MOON, but Wells was not satisfied with the science in that book. he [Wells] described it [THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON] as an 'imaginative spree', and said 'it is probably the writer's best "scientific romance".' One of the reasons it is the best of Wells's work based on science is that all the scientific aspects -- gravity on the moon, the impact of the sun on the moon's surface, and even what the surface might be like -- were. [verified with] leading experts in astronomy, astronomical physics, and other disciplines to ensure that the book was accurate, within the bounds of knowledge and theory of that time.~THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON was Wells's first book to be turned into a movie (in 1919 -- remade in 1964). And ever since 1969 this was the book that collectors asked Neil Armstrong to sign.~This is a remarkably fine, bright copy of this attractively-produced book. This has become a difficult Wells science fiction title to find in acceptable condition. Wells Soc. 18; Hammond B7; Currey p. 518. Housed in a morocco-backed clamshell case.

        CREEK INDIAN LANDS NOW ON THE MARKET [caption title]

      Holdenville, Indian Territory: Western Real Estate Company, [circa 1901].. Broadside, 11 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches. Small chip in lower margin, else fine. Rare broadside advertising lands for sale in Indian Territory, issued a dozen years after the "opening" of Oklahoma in 1889 that brought thousands of Sooners into the region. The land had been secured as a result of the "passage of the last Creek agreement," a reference to the 1901 treaty between the United States and the Creek Nation, that resulted in the allotment of land to specific tribe members, which could then be resold. Many members of the Creek tribe were relocated to Indian Territory when they were removed from their lands in Georgia in the late 1820s and early 1830s. The broadside advertises 100,000 acres of land being offered by the Western Real Estate Company of Holdenville, Indian Territory, located just southeast of Oklahoma City. A trust company had been established to guarantee title to the land, and to loan money to purchasers. The agricultural potential of the land, "the best country west of the Mississippi" is touted: it would produce "from 30 to 80 bushels corn per acre; from 3/4 to 1 bale cotton; from 75 to 500 bushels potatoes to the acre. It is a fine fruit and berry center. The climate and the seasons are the very best. We never fail to make a crop here." No copies of this broadside are located in OCLC. Good evidence of land hunger in pre- statehood Oklahoma.

        Bryn Mawr College Calendar for 1902 (Jessie Willcox Smith and Elizabeth Shippen Green, Ellen Wetheral Ahrens: one of the greatest rarities and stunning illustrations)

      Bryn Mawr: Bryn Mawr College Students' Association, 1901. First edition. Oblong quarto. Exceedingly scarce original printed Bryn Mawr College Calendar comprising THIRTEEN FULL-PAGE THREE-COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS BY JESSIE WILLCOX SMITH, ELIZABETH SHIPPEN GREEN AND ELLEN WETHERALD AHRENS. Measuring 14 x 7.5 inches, this calendar was printed by the Beck Engraving Company who go on later to print many of Smith's books, including all by David McKay. Original printed wrappers with cover illustration by Elizabeth Shippen Green, calendars calligraphied by the three artists with decorative inititals, six full-page colored illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith, six full-page colored illustrations by Elizabeth Shippen Green and one full-page colored illustration by Ellen Wetheral Ahrens. These illustrations were commissioned especially for this illustrious calendar by the Bryn Mawr College Students' Association and are the first and only appearances of these images anywhere in print. The concept was pre-date by one earlier number which had only 5 full-page color illustrations by Smith (others in border designs). Without a doubt the scarcest and most graphically stunning of any of Smith's ephemeral items, of which there are hundreds if not thousands of examples through her prolific career. Some very minor chipping to paper, original ties still present, an amazing survival.

An unusually Fine, bright copy, the hinges uncracked, of one of the most difficult of Wells's science fiction titles to be found in collectible condition. & & & The last and perhaps most complex of Wells's early scientific romances, inspired by Jules Verne’s 'Journey to the Moon.' Unlike Verne, Wells had all scientific aspects of his lunar voyage verified for plausibility by experts at the time. In 1919, the book was turned into the first of the films to be based on Wells's work. "These early 'scientific romances' remain unsurpassed for their imagination and visionary power. Where Wells's contemporaries saw him as adding the scientific imagination to nineteenth-century romance, the twentieth century regarded him as the greatest of the forerunners of modern science fiction. His tales of future evolution, alien intelligence, interplanetary warfare and technological dystopia anticipated most of science fiction's thematic repertoire."

        Monthly Suppers of the Male Teachers of New York at Hotel Albert

      NY: Male Teacher's Association of New York, 1901. 24mo. booklet, signed by Mark Twain in pencil on the front cover. The booklet is a program for the monthly dinner meeting of the Male Teacher’s Association of New York that occurred on March 16th, 1901, most notable for the fact that Mark Twain was one of the principal speakers. The theme of the evening was training students to be good citizens, and Twain’s speech addressed his own interpretation of patriotism. In an April 7, 1901 New York Times article covering the event, it is reported that Twain said, “I would teach patriotism in the schools, and teach it this way: I would throw out the old maxim, ‘My country, right or wrong,’ &c., instead I would say, ‘My country when she is right.’” He continued on, saying, “I would not take my patriotism from my neighbor or from Congress. I should teach the children in the schools that there are certain ideals, and one of them is that all men are created free and equal.” The first page of the booklet is a roster of the association’s officers and members of the group’s glee club, and the second page is the menu for the evening. The third page lists the seven speakers for the evening, including Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain), and the final page lists the Supper Committee members. Laid in is a mimeographed sheet with the club’s annual budget statement. The text is printed in blue, and the booklet is in printed cream wrappers and tied with a blue ribbon laced through the spine. A few spots of soiling and some faint toning to the covers, ribbon shows some wear, else near fine.

        Original watercolor diptych from A Masque of Days

      1901. Two watercolor illustrations on paper, each measuring 7 5/8 by 11 inches (194 x 275 mm), and each signed with Crane's monogram in the lower left corner. This is the original artwork for the spread on pages five and six of A Masque of Days, and it shows twelve winged foot-pages carrying invitation cards. The text above, in Crane's calligraphic script, informs the reader that "cards of invitation had been issued" to commemorate the passage of the year, and "(t)he carriers were THE HOURS" who "went all round and found out the persons invited well enough, with the exceptions of Easter Day, Shrove Tuesday, and a few such Moveable who had lately shifted their quarters." A fine example of a mature work by Crane, together with a copy of the published book.
