Veniaminov, Ioann, a.k.a. St. Innocent of Alaska.]
tip. "Amerikanskago Pravoslavnago Vestnika", [New York], 1901. 8vo, pp. 16; portrait; original printed pink wrappers; near fine. The wrapper of this edition is printed in Cyrillic characters, the text is in Tlinglit. It carries a Sitka imprint, but it was actually printed in New York. Indication of the Way to the Kingdom of Heaven, in Tlingit, and for the use of the native Alaskans, it composed by Ioann Veniaminov in 1833. Veniaminov (1797-1879) was one of the great luminaries of Russian America. "Possessing remarkable intellectual, linguistic, and practical skills, the young married priest volunteered in 1823 to go to Alaska as a missionary. Settling with his wife and family in Unalaska, he built a church and a school and began his lifelong task of studying the native languages of the region. With the help of the Aleut chief Ivan Pan'kov, Veniaminov invented an alphabet for the Unangan language aand then used it to compose grammars and translate the Gospel of St. Matthew. Travelling though the Aleutian Islands, Veniaminov collected a great deal of ethnographic and scientific material which would result in further publications in the Aleut and Tlingit languages and his Notes on the Unalaska District. After his transfer to New Archangel (Sitka) in 1834, he paid a pastoral visit to Fort Ross and was warmly received by the Franciscan fathers at their missions in Northern California. While on a trip to St. Petersburg in 1839 to plead for support for the church in Alaska, he learned of his wife's death. At first reluctant to return to America, Veniaminov in 1840 was made bishop … [Click Below for Full Description]

WALKER, Lily H.
[Maine], 1901. Complete set of 50 hand coloured pen-and-ink dominoes, contained in a small cardboard box (11L x 7.5D x 2.5H cm approx) covered with a cream fleur-de-lis patterned ivory cloth, with 'Picture Dominoes' handwritten in ink to the lid. Each of the 50 pieces are illustrated with various drawings, including houses, trees, animals, figures and everyday objects, amongst others. Together with handwritten instructions to the game (dated 'Lily H. Walker. Dec 25th 1901'), and an inventory list for each domino (signed and dated in the same hand as the dominoes themselves). The box is a little discoloured and scuffed in accordance with age; the domino cards themselves virtually unmarked and with the original colour bright and fresh. A charming collection of dominoes, seemingly gifted by Lily Walker as a Christmas present in 1901. Each of the painstakingly hand-drawn and coloured images on the pieces have been immaculately preserved, and include everyday objects such as pins, bonnetts, candles, mouse-traps and more. They are matched thus: dog to collar, pocket to book, pin to wheel, etc. etc. Little is known about the artist of these pieces, but clues can be gleaned from each of the images. For example, the saltbox cabin design of one of the houses strongly suggests Maine as the location, and this provenence is strengthened by the water bottle, branded 'Poland' for Poland Water, a company which, by 1901, had been manufacturing in Maine for 55 years. A completely unique set of cards, which have lost none of their charm in the 118 since their creation.

Condition is POOR. It is a twine/rope bound book, and although the front cover is included, it has torn loose. However, the remainder of the book (all pages and back cover) remains bound. The book's 105 pages remain relatively 'clear' with only minor toning/browning which is amazing considering its age, and the pages suffer no rips, tears, stains, foxing, etc. After the book's 105 pages come some additional pages that were originally blank and clearly were provided to serve as 'scrapbook pages' so the book's owner could paste pictures, letters, etc. Six of these pages have pictures attached, largely cut out from magazines, etc. These additional pages are in 'rougher' shape than the printed pages, and are significantly 'toned' and many of them have 'scuffed' edges. Blessedly, the book suffers no bug damage and was stored out of the sun so it suffers no fading. Offered by Over The Blue Horizon is a rare treasure of Hawaii: an original, 1901 copy of "PORTRAITS OF AMERICAN PROTESTANT MISSIONARIES TO HAWAII".

HANCOCK, John (1737-1793)
One page (7 3/4 x 8 in.) with separated address panel in Hancock's hand and bearing a second signature. Fraction of seal preserved. Loss to upper left corner not affecting text, slight dampstain at begging of text, a small reinforcement along fold on verso, partly separated along one fold. BOLDLY SIGNED TWICE: A PERSONAL LETTER FROM JOHN HANCOCK TO HIS WIFE DOROTHY, referred to affectionately as "Dolly." Hancock was away from Massachusetts and preparing for the Battle of Rhode Island. The battle took place shortly after France's entry to the Revolutionary War as an ally to the American side. Soldiers from all over New England were joined by a fleet of twelve ships from France. Prior to the battle, a storm had damaged both French and British fleets, and after the French retreated to Boston, a mass of the American militia followed. The remaining Americans, outnumbered by the British, were forced to withdraw; the outcome, ultimately, was inconclusive. Hancock was in command of the Massachusetts militia, or, as he describes them in the letter, "my gentlemen." In his report from Rhode Island, he makes a point of reassuring his wife that he is upholding his political duties to the state, as well as fulfilling the social roles that go along with being a statesman. While he "determined to support the honours of the state as far as [he] can," he also makes time to keep "a publick table." Further reference to Hancock's social life is made in his request to Dolly to "remember me to Doc. Cooper & all friends." Dr. Samuel Cooper was a congregational minister at the Brattle Street church … [Click Below for Full Description]

1901. Condition: Acceptable. These books are over one hundred years old, so the concept of "acceptable" will vary. Much of the printing on the spine is worn away, as you can see in the photographs. The pages are intact but require delicate handling. I would suggest the use of gloves when handling these books. I who write these lines am Ed Yetman, III. Many people around the world know me through my international correspondence chess play and the publication of my magazine, Yetman Brothers' Descriptive Chess Magazine. I also hold an advanced degree in history, literature and other arts. I am not just a player; I am a bookseller and bibliophile of forty years' experience. I have read thousands of chess books and done years of research, and I have heard of and seen books like Cook's Synopsis of the Openings and Freeborough and Ranken's Chess Openings Ancient and Modern. I have never heard of this series, Mordechai Morgan's The Chess Digest. I have never seen it for sale. There are facsimiles on the internet, but not the original. When I found it packed away in the Trojan Hoard of Allan Troy, it came as a complete surprise to me. Mr. Morgan painstakingly assembled all the known analysis of his day, from all tournaments and magazines published between 1850 and 1902. It was the state-of-the-art analysis of the opening at the time. Many diagrams, most unusual for the time. The notation is fractional (see photographs above) using Miron Hazeltine's reformed Descriptive notation: it uses the hyphen instead of the word "to"; the Knight symbol is "Kt"; when a piece moves along the firs … [Click Below for Full Description]

David Park Barnitz
Doxey's, New York. New York, Doxey's, 1901. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. 436/600 Copies. A very nice copy of an uncommon book, one of only 600 copies printed by William Doxey who was on the verge of bankruptcy at the time. The book has been popular with readers of horror and the supernatural for a century, due in large to the horrific descriptions of death. The book is near fine with some bumping to the spine tips, a little rubbing and a tight split to the front hinge. Barnitz, who had the book published anonymously, died shortly after its publication of a reported 'enlarged heart' though some suspect suicide. A masterpiece of decadant poetry.

Printed dark grey stiff-stock paper wrappers, stapled. Wrappers soiled. A Very Good copy. Item #36184 Genthe, born in Berlin, emigrated to San Francisco in 1895, where he taught himself the art of photography. Famous for his images of pre-1906 Chinatown, Genthe would later establish himself as a master of portraiture. His subjects would include Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, John D. Rockefeller, Greta Garbo & Isadora Duncan. In this article, written very early in Genthe's career, he presciently declares his admiration for the new camera equipment, which allows for "an unstudied pose and a natural expression..." Further, he herein likens photography to art, where the photographer should strive for "the approval of the painter and sculptor.." A rare item documenting the artistic philosophy of an acknowledged early 20th C. virtuoso of the photograph.

1901. Near Fine. A few spots on front board, ink name and number on front endpaper, otherwise an excellent copy. Osler, William; Bovaird, David The Principles and Practice of Medicine, Designed for the Use of Practitioners and Students of Medicine [with] Some Letters by David Bovaird New York: D. Appleton and Company. 1901. Third edition. xvii, [1], 1181 pp. 8vo. An immensely important work of general medical knowledge, written by a co-founder of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Osler's creation of the first residency program and emphasis on teaching students through clinical experience rather than lectures led many to call him the father of modern medicine. Garrison-Morton 2231: "Osler's textbook was the best English work on medicine of its time. He became Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford in 1904. Besides being one of the greatest of all clinicians, he was possessed of a fine literary style and an extensive knowledge of medical bibliography. Garrison has written of him: "When he came to die, Osler was, in a very real sense, the greatest physician of our time... Good looks, distinction, blithe, benignant manners, a sunbright personality, radiant with kind feeling and good will toward his fellow men, an Apollonian poise, swiftness and surety of thought and speech, every gift of the gods was his; and to these were added careful training, unsurpassed clinical ability, the widest knowledge of his subject, the deepest interest in everything human, and a serene hold upon his fellows that was as a seal set upon them"."
