        Archive of 10 original cartoons, mock-ups and illustrations by Socialist cartoonist Guy H. Lockwood (and students)

      [Kalamazoo, MI: ca 1903-1915]. Excellent small archive of work by the cartoonist, publisher, Socialist Party organizer and pamphleteer Guy H. Lockwood (1870-1947). A search of OCLC discovers no fewer than 30 publications written and published by Lockwood from his Kalamazoo studio between 1900 and 1928, including two Socialist periodicals ("The Billy Goat" and "Unity"), several how-to publications for artists, and dozens of pamphlets on subjects ranging from health fads to occultism to progressive politics. In addition to his many publishing activities, Lockwood operated a correspondence art school from about 1910-1934; included here are three examples of work by students and associates (or possibly five; the two unsigned works are difficult to attribute positively to Lockwood). The drawings are for the most part political in nature, and most appear to have been prepared for publication. They include: ::Lockwood's mock-up for a subscription card for The Appeal To Reason, undated (ca 1900-1905); ::Newspaper illustration, signed "GH Lockwood," headlined "The Short Hand Room" (dated 1904); ::Lockwood's masthead for an unidentified publication, headlined "Railroad Edition" (ca 1900-1905); ::Lockwood's mock-up for an advertisement for American Socialist College (dated 1903); ::Uncaptioned illustration, signed "GH Lockwood", of a woman house-cleaner (dated 1904); ::Unsigned masthead, possibly by Lockwood, titled "Can You Put A Tail On A Billy Goat?", for the magazine "Unity" (ca 1910s); ::Unsigned drawing of a teamster stuck in the mud, undated, apparently cut from a larger sheet; ::Masthead for "The Billy Goat", signed "GES", (ca 1910) ::Humorous portrait of Lockwood, titled "A Little Journey to the School of Lockwood the Heavy Hoofed, or a Maker of Artists", signature illegible, dated 1915; ::another portrait of Lockwood, titled "Lockwood On A Toot", signed "Gris," undated. ::Report, dated April 1, 1934 from Lockwood as State Organizer of the Michigan Socialist Party (5 mimeographed sheets, in envelope with return address of the Lockwood Art School). Together, a valuable record of this talented but little-known artist's work, as well as of Progressive-era radical publishing history. 10 original pen-and-ink illustrations, in black ink on artist's board. Five signed by Lockwood; two pieces unsigned but apparently in Lockwood's hand; three works signed by other artists. Dimensions vary; most pieces ca. 13" x 7" to 12" x 10"; some slightly smaller. A few with marginal chips or soiling; several with pencil markings for placement for publication; most appear to have been lifted from mounts or albums, with resulting scuffing/staining to paper on verso. Overall Very Good.

        Handbuch der allgemeinen und lokalen Anaesthesie für Ärzte und Studierende.

      . Berlin u. Wien, Urban & Schwarzenberg, 1903, 8°, VI, 234 pp., mit 116 Abb., original Leineneinband; mit dem Ex Libris "Dr. A. Bauer". Erste Auflage. Das bekannte, jedoch sehr seltene Handbuch aus der "Kocher Schule". - Fritz L.Dumont (1854-1932) fordert die Reform der Anaesthesie-Ausbildung: "Sofern sich nur die Chefärzte, die klinischen Lehrer, die Assistenten entschlössen, wirkliche Kurse der Narkose zu halten, sobald die Regierung und die Stadtverwaltungen überzeugt würde von der Notwendigkeit, die Narkose einzelnen, nur dazu verpflichtenten Ärzten mit dem Mandat des Unterrichtens in ihrer Kunst zu übertragen, würden sehr bald sich das Bedürfnis der Befreiung der Narkose aus den Fesseln der Empirie und indolenter Tradition ergeben. Man richte Chloroformkurse ein, man verlange Testate über sachgemäss vollzogene Narkosen, man nehme im Examen Rücksicht auf dieselbe und man wird für die Chloroformfrage mehr getan haben, als wenn mann fünfzig Jahre hindurch jährlich zwei bis drei Statistiken veröffentlicht und an dem milden Ernst der Zahlen seine kleinen Bedenken beruhigt. Wir sind der festen Meinung, daß, je mehr man sich eingehend mit der Narkosefrage beschäftigt, um so deutlicher das hohe Maß der Verantwortlichkeit uns bewußt werden wird, welches man mit dem Anraten der Narkose übernimmt, denn auch hier, wie so häufig, deckt sich Sorglosikeit und mangelndes Wissen." F.L.Dumont, p.17-19 - "The standard textbook by Fritz Dumont, was published in 1903. It was excellently illustrated and gave a comprehensive survey of local anaestehsia for the first time... -cf. J.Schulte am Esch & M.Goerig: The Histroy of Anaesthesia, p.41 - "Dumont advocates reform in anesthetic education" -cf. Duncum, p.547

"New England regionalist writer, highly regarded for cameo like, naturalistic pictures of domestic life and for supernatural stories ... THE WIND IN THE ROSE-BUSH (1903), Freeman&#39;s only supernatural collection, is of greater critical and historical importance than its uniqueness might suggest. It is one of the very few bodies of work that combine domestic realism with supernaturalism, and it has been the founding document of a minor school within supernatural fiction (notably August Derleth and his followers). The individual stories are also excellent." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 163. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-71.

        Sydney Harbour Bridge Advisory Board. (Report on Designs and Tenders Submitted In Connection with the Proposed Bridge over Sydney Harbour .).

      - Sydney, Govt Printer 1903. Foolscap, stapled as issued; 67pp; with the portfolio of plates: 46 maps, plans, elevations, views, panoramas and photo illustrations (almost all folding, many colour and many rather large), loose as issued in the publisher's foolscap portfolio (with a new cloth spine). Rough around the edges, with spotting and browning of the outer pages of the report, some frayed edges of a few plans and a few splodges and flaws here and there but decent enough and all there. An archetypal example of Australian progress, this saga dragged on for years. The competition for a bridge was first called in 1900, a winner (Arrol) and runner-up (Norman Selfe) were announced whereupon the public service discarded both and began negotiations with the cheapest bidder. After protest the competition was relaunched but this time detailed specifications and conditions were issued. With no clear winner, three companies were invited to submit further designs and in the end Norman Selfe's rather Eiffelesque cantilever bridge was favoured. At this point there was a change in government and the whole endeavour petered out in a series of increasingly bitter skirmishes on the part of Selfe and inconclusive committees and commissions on the part of the government. This report remains the most concrete record of it. Of all the varied schemes for bridging the harbour, this report offering such a range of possible bridges most makes us look at our sacred landmark with questioning eyes. This report is rare of course but, surprisingly, the printed report is the harder bit to find. Over the last few dozen decades, or however long I've been in this business, I've tracked down three or four sets of the plates but the only copy of the report, before this, was in Norman Selfe's own bundle of papers.
