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.

Genthe, Arnold [1869 - 1942].
San Francisco: 1901. 1st separate printing. Not in the NUC, and OCLC records just one institutional holding: The Huntington. 14, [2 (blank)] pp. 20 b/w reproduced photographic images. 8vo. 10-1/4" x 7". 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.

Osler, William; Bovaird, David
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"."

President William Mckinley's Funeral, Canton, Ohio-24 Photographs
Condition: Very Good. Very Good. 1901. Photograph. A rare collection of 24 black and white original photographs from William McKinley's 1901 funeral in Canton, Ohio. Most of the prints are in very good condition with some corner wear and a few chips, measuring 6" x 8", with three measuring 4 1/2" x 7". The smaller photos have some corners missing. Brief captions on some photos. The photos show the Canton City Hall, Mckenzie & Robel novelty shop, and People's Savings Bank on Market Street and the McKinley house, with crowds for the procession in many scenes. Several shots are of a horse-drawn cart pulling a canon, with military escort, and several others are of carriages, one of which seems to be the hearse. A few photos are possibly unrelated, but still in Canton; two show snowy scenes and another is of an African American man in a stable doorway polishing a harness. Other photos are of the military band in the funeral parade and of military guards standing at attention and at rest at the Westlawn cemetery. The funeral took place on September 19, 1901, the day after the train carrying the casket arrived in Canton and two weeks after McKinley was shot. No records of these photos have been found.

James Boswell
London: J. M. Dent and Co, 1901. Featuring three tissue-guarded portrait frontispieces. Contains numerous illustrated plates and illustrations in the text. With the pictorial bookplates of Edward Arthur Parry to the front pastedowns. Complete in three volumes. 'Edited by Arnold Glover of the Inner Temple, with an introduction by Austin Dobson'. James Boswell, 9th Laird of Auchinleck (29 October 1740 - 19 May 1795) was a lawyer, diarist and author, best known for his biography of Samuel Johnson. First published in 1791, The Life of Samuel Johnson was greatly admired for its unique style; unlike other biographies of the era it directly incorporated conversations that Boswell had noted down at the time for his journals. He also included far more personal details of Johnson than contemporary readers were accustomed to. Instead of writing a respectful and dry record of Johnson's public life, Boswell painted a vivid portrait of the complete man. It is still often said to be the greatest biography ever written. CONDITION In half morocco bindings with marbled boards. Externally, excellent with just minor shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Overall Condition: Near Fine.

Our volume was bound in New York by James MacDonald, who had emigrated from Scotland in 1873 to work for William Matthews at the Appleton bindery. In 1882, he went into business with another former Matthews apprentice, William Launder. As Lawrence Thompson, in "Hand Bookbinding in the United States since the Civil War," tells us, "for the next decade the name of Launder and MacDonald stood for the best in American hand binding; and after the partnership was dissolved, each man . . . continued to produce bindings sturdy in structure, simple and symmetrical in design, tasteful and neat in all respects. They have enjoyed the well-earned patronage of American bibliophiles for over half a century." The Vale Press books, which Cave says were "far truer to the spirit of fifteenth-century printing than Kelmscott work," included nearly 50 titles issued during the eight-year life of the press (beginning in 1894), and both its impressive output and considerable artistic success can be attributed to the fact th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Published by the Governors of the Bishopsgate Foundation, 1901. Two full leather hardbacks with gilt lettering and decoration. Governor's copy. Scarce (Probably unique copy). First edition. The Bishopsgate Institute opened in 1895 and is a cultural institute. The original aims of the Institute were to provide a public library, public hall and meeting rooms for people living and working in the City of London. Bishopsgate Institute was built using funds from charitable endowments made to the parish of St Botolph's, Bishopsgate. These had been collected by the parish for over a period of 500 years, but a scheme agreed by the Charity Commissioners in 1891, enabled these to be drawn together into one endowment. Reverend William Rogers, Rector of St Botolph's and a notable educational reformer and supporter of free libraries was instrumental in setting up the Institute and ensuring that the original charitable aims were met. CONDITION Two full leather hardbacks with gilt lettering and decoration. There is some rubbing to the extremities and fading to the spines. The bindings are tight and firm, however one of the inner front hinges has failed. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright. Overall Condition: Very Good.

Voltaire
Paris, London, New York, Chicago: E.R. DuMont, 1901. Condition: Near fine. No. 658 of 660 copies, octavo size, each volume is approx. 300 pp., illustrated. François-Marie Arouet (1694-1778), or the man known as Voltaire, was a prolific writer, whose works are complete in these 42 volumes, a limited finepress edition, with thick untrimmed pages that practically burst from the covers. An appropriate vessel for the loud and subversive author "le roi Voltaire" who was at one time arguably the most celebrated and most hated man in Europe. Voltaire's large and varied body of work includes over 20,000 letters, 49 plays, and numerous philosophical and political essays, histories, poems and short-stories. The self described "innkeeper of Europe", beloved especially to the British people, wrote much about justice, reason and tolerance. His ironic and subversive work often brought him into dangerous proximity of conflict with religious and political authorities, especially when it came to his highly opinionated histories. His writings had a great impact during his lifetime, so much that his body had to be smuggled out of France at the time of his death to avoid a heretic's burial. By the time of the French Revolution, many of his lines advocating freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and separation of church and state had developed into iconic slogans. Unlike many authors, Voltaire's variegated wisdom was spread throughout all his writing, from a short letter to a long history, he had a large circle of friends, and his likeness was depicted by many artists during and after his … [Click Below for Full Description]

1901. Original manuscripts. Hardcover. Present are pocket diaries for 1901, 1903, 1904, 1905, 1906, 1907, and 1908. All are about 5" x 3", wallet-style with tab closures or wrap-around flaps. Nearly all entries are written in ink by a readable hand. Ledger sections at the rear of each diary are used to record income and expenses. As an archive, the diaries cover many topics, including daily weather reports, JWP's job news, family news (even such personal notes as his smoking a cigar, shaving, getting a haircut, how many valentines Horace received, Horace's school report-card grades, what pieces Horace is learning on the piano, what "required reading" Horace does in school, etc.). They also contain much local town news: weddings--esp. in June--, births, funerals--including several children, one hit by a street car and one by lightning, town-wide celebrations and parades, fires, election results--including a long-drawn out contested mayoral election in 1907 where "Dagos and Negros" are suspected of voting illegally--, the 40th annual G.A.R. Encampment in 1906, a huge Homecoming Week celebration in 1907, the 50th Anniversary of the Lincoln-Douglas Debates (on the grounds at Knox College) in 1908, where attendees include Taft, Douglas's grandson Robert, and--a day later--Wm Jennings Bryan. In 1908, the town goes dry, as the temperance movement hits it with a vengeance. The diaries also occasionally mention national news, including the McKinley assassination, the Great Fire in Chicago, the San Francisco Earthquake, including locals killed there (4/18/06), election results, the t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio (33 x 25.5 cm.) 12 pp. Original full-colour chromolithographs throughout, some full-page. Original chromolithographed wrappers (extremities rubbed).

Colonel Mihail Achkasov was captured by the Germans at around the same time (dates vary), they met in a hospital in the town of Berg near Magdeburg.

Phoenix: 1901. Condition: Very Good. Phoenix. Very Good. 1901. Newspaper. Three items related to the hanging of train robber Black Jack Ketchum, an outlaw who operated in New Mexico and Arizona. The first item is a complete issue of the April 27, 1901 issue of the Phoenix newspaper The Arizona Gazette, with the front page reporting the hanging that occurred the day before in Clayton, New Mexico, including the fact that "The rope broke and his head was jerked off." Issue is toned, with chips and holes where it was bound; pages are separated. 21" x 14 1/2". The other two items are divided back silver gelatin postcards from the early 1900s depicting the event, two famous images in very good condition, each 3 1/2" x 5". One is of Ketchum on the gallows, "The Hanging of 'Black Jack' the Outlaw", and the other is "Body of 'Black Jack' after the Hanging. Showing head snapped off," with two men squatting over the body and hooded head. Murderer and train robber Thomas E. "Black Jack" Ketchum was caught on April 17, 1899, the day after he was seriously wounded trying to rob a train by himself. His injuries resulted in the amputation of his arm while in jail. He was hung on April 26, 1901. The famous and extra gruesome hanging was apparently a mistake of the drop being too great for a man of Ketchum's weight. B&W Photographs.

Condition: Very Good. Very Good. 1901. Photograph. A rare collection of 24 black and white original photographs from William McKinley's 1901 funeral in Canton, Ohio. Most of the prints are in very good condition with some corner wear and a few chips, measuring 6" x 8", with three measuring 4 1/2" x 7". The smaller photos have some corners missing. Brief captions on some photos. The photos show the Canton City Hall, Mckenzie & Robel novelty shop, and People's Savings Bank on Market Street and the McKinley house, with crowds for the procession in many scenes. Several shots are of a horse-drawn cart pulling a canon, with military escort, and several others are of carriages, one of which seems to be the hearse. A few photos are possibly unrelated, but still in Canton; two show snowy scenes and another is of an African American man in a stable doorway polishing a harness. Other photos are of the military band in the funeral parade and of military guards standing at attention and at rest at the Westlawn cemetery. The funeral took place on September 19, 1901, the day after the train carrying the casket arrived in Canton and two weeks after McKinley was shot. No records of these photos have been found.
