        The Negro Artisan: A Social Study Made Under the Direction of Atlanta University by the Seventh Atlanta Conference

      Atlanta: Atlanta University Press. 1902. First. First edition. Brown wrappers. 192pp. Paper eroded at the spine ends, tiny nicks and tears, but a handsome, very good or a little better copy of this important study. In 1896, W.E.B. Du Bois was asked by Atlanta University President Horace Bumstead to head an annual conference series to produce "the first... thoroughly scientific study of the conditions of Negro life, covering all its most important phases ... resulting in a score of annual Atlanta University publications." The studies, Bumstead hoped, would result in an authoritative statement about the lives of Black Americans. Although Du Bois is listed as editor, virtually all, and perhaps literally, all of the works are his own. While he authored several other pamphlets for the University, this thick pamphlet, is perhaps the hardest to find in acceptable condition - most were rebound. .

Rebe read and critiqued Ellen's earliest work, and was almost certainly the unmarried Ellen's closest friend throughout her life. .

        Octaves in an Oxford Garden, Of Brooks & Books (2 lots)

      Edmund D. Brooks, Minneapolis 1902 - Rarest of Upson material, unnumbered 1/350cc, scarab bookplate of Margarethe Heisser who did the brilliant arts and crafts style lettering and illustrative decorating for each page plus three full page drawings, rare photograph of her on frp that is fading over time, spine woodsy-looking material reglued with five pieces of tape no joy to behold (needs rebinding perhaps?) and shows wear, silk boards, exquisite copy, bp of f/o on pastedown, printed by Hahn and Harmon of Minneapolis. Tragic story of this pair--Upson dying of illness, depression at loss of father and probably suicide at 31, likened to Keats by Sinclair Lewis who called him his poetic mentor; she died in mid 30s of rare illness; began drawing Indian women in nearby villages, attended Art Students League in NY, met him at a Minnesota University intellectual book club, she had very few showings, designed maybe four books at most. Special watermark rag paper, a splendid combination of turn of century printing, lettering, drawing and poetic display. Upson worked in Brooks' bookstore after class, even sleeping under the counters when unwilling to go home. This book is accompanied by Of Brooks & Books by Lee Edmonds Grove, a study of the publisher E. D. Brooks who is connected with the Upson book (see p70) for bibliographic citation, VG/VG, 1st edn, 489/1500cc. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [South African Flowering Plants].[United States or Canada?, ca. 1905]. An album (32 x 42 cm) containing a series of 86 ink and watercolour botanical drawings on paper (each about 27 x 18.5 cm) showing South African flowering plants, all but 10 with the species name and the signature of the artist, A. Mosnier. The drawings mounted on the leaves of a contemporary commercial photograph album (blocked green cloth).

      A well-executed series of 86 botanical drawings of South African flowering plants, all in a consistent style and format on two fine Whatman laid paper stocks, with watermarked dates 1902 and 1904. All but 10 give the species or occasionally only the genus name (mostly in Latin, but a few in English) and are signed by the artist, A. Mosnier. In very good condition and only slightly trimmed (shaving a leaf or stem in 4 drawings). A nice series of botanical drawings of South African flowering plants.

        To Build a Fire [Scarce True First Publication]

      Boston: Perry Mason Company [Youth's Companion Magazine], 1902. First edition. Wrappers. Fine. A Fine copy of the exceedingly scarce first publication of Jack London's short story "To Build a Fire", published in the Youth's Companion Magazine for May 29, 1902, being the 1902 Memorial Day Number of the Magazine with the outer cover hosting a color illustration. This issue is in remarkable condition, showing a center fold line -as usual, and with the elegant cover showing a bit of spotting to the upper and lower right corners and a small name stamp to the right margin. Within, the pages are bright and rather crisp. This is the true first edition of this notable Jack London story about a man on the trail trying to survive in freezing weather, presented here in a juvenile version as fitting for this magazine. The work is considered by some to be the best-known of all of London's short stories. An expanded version of the story, the version known to most readers, was published in 1908. [In the 1902 version, the man suffers permanent frostbite damage, but survives. In the 1908 version, he perishes.] A Rare Fine copy of this true first edition and an excellent piece of Jack London ephemera.
