        Traité de fauconnerie et d'autourserie suivi d'une étude sur la pêche au cormoran. Évreux, Charles Hérissey, 1903. Large 8vo (28.5 x 21.5 cm). With 35 plates and numerous illustrations in text. Modern red half sheepskin, with the original publisher's printed wrappers bound in.

      Thiebaud, p. 66; WorldCat (9 copies); cf. Bibl. accipitraria 219. Rare first and only edition of a work on falconry, followed by a short treatise on cormorant fishing by Alfred Belvallette, "well known in France as a skilful falconer, and he writes with a thorough knowledge of his subject... French falconers apply the term fauconnerie only to flights with the long-winged hawks (Peregrine, Merlin, Hobby, and Jerfalcon), flights with the short-winged Goshawk (autor) and Sparrow-hawk (épervier) coming under the expressive and very convenient term autourserie" (Bibl. accipitraria). The work partly contains original illustrations, including many photographs of falconers in action, but also copies of Schlegel and others. With only a couple spots, otherwise in very good condition.

True second edition of Scaliger's Manilius, the oldest and most widely cited work on ancient astrology, enlarged with commentaries by Franciscus Junius. "Perhaps no critic has ever effected so great and permanent a change in any author's text as Scaliger in Manilius'. … The commentary is the one commentary on Manilius, without forerunner and without successor; after the passage of 300 years, it is the only avenue to a study of the poem …" (Houseman, in the preface to his edition of 1903)."For the average reader, the Astronomica served as a literary introduction to heavens and an advanced primer to astrology. Manilius' masterpiece, a Latin didactic poem in five books, unveils the cosmos in hexameter verse, explaining the celestial sphere and zodiac, 'describing the stars, constellations, and planets,' and above all, providing a Stoic vision of the celestial dance" (Hockey et al.).From the library of Pietro Riccardi, a notable collector of mathematical books. Some browning throughout and one page with its lower right corner torn off, but still a good copy and wholly untrimmed, preserving all deckles. Binding also good, with upper part of the front hinge restored.

        A complete set of the Dun Emer Press books.

      Dundrum, Dublin: Dun Emer Press, 1903–7 - 11 works, octavo. Original linen-backed grey or pale blue paper boards, except for In the Seven Woods which is in the original off-white linen. Housed together in a custom made grey-green cloth slipcase. Spine labels chipped, endpapers browned (as usual), light brown mottling to covers of In the Seven Woods. All colophons and some letterpress printed in red. An attractive complete set of the books issued by the Dun Emer Press, a private press established by Yeats's sisters and which played an important part in the Celtic Revival. The poet acted as literary editor and subsidised its productions; a number of the publications are Yeats first editions. "In 1902, when [Lily] Yeats and her sister, Elizabeth, were invited by Evelyn Gleeson (1855–1944), Gaelic leaguer and suffragist, to help set up a craft enterprise along the lines of Morris's utopian socialist ideals, they moved back to Dublin with their father. They took a cottage, Gurteen Dhas ('pretty little meadow'), in Churchtown, Dundrum, near the house, Dun Emer, in which Gleeson set up a printing press, carpet and needlework rooms, and other artistic ventures" (ODNB). Elizabeth Yeats took a short printing course and oversaw productions. "The Dun Emer Press was set up using a second-hand Albion handpress that it had acquired through advertising in local newspapers, and paper that had been manufactured at the County Dublin Saggart Mills. [the Press] showed how a specialist press, driven by a combination of the Gaelic League and the Arts and Crafts Movement, could work against the grain of imperial drives and directives, and produce small print runs of ideologically and aesthetically determined rather than economically driven texts. Ironically, in retracing the glories of the eighteenth century in its attention to detail and craft perfection, the press also provided imagery and an aesthetics that would be later grafted onto the new Irish republic and mass-produced in the twentieth century for the Irish diaspora around the world" (Frank Ferguson in The Oxford History of the Irish Book, Volume IV: The Irish Book in English 1800-1891, pp. 24-26).

Frontispieces and plates (including chromolithographs, photogravures (some tinted blue or sepia), and engravings), numerous text illustrations, and facsimiles.

Spines with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. Several volumes sunned at spine. With the bookplates of Ernest Ridley Debenham. Overall, a fine set. "The object of the editors has been to put the readers of this edition in possession of a complete collection of Ruskin's published Writings." It includes "all Ruskin's books now current in other editions?a reissue of all publications by him now out of print or only privately circulated?all his letters, articles, and other scattered writings, printed but not heretofore collected?and a collation of all the different editions, thus bringing together within the pages of each book everything that he at any time published in it." This edition also includes "all the illustrations inserted by Ruskin in his books, and all the drawings by him which have hitherto been published [many printed from the original plates]. These are an essential portion of his work" (Preface to This Edition). The last volume contains a bibliography, a catalogue of the manuscripts, and a full index to Ruskin's works. John Ruskin (1819-1900), "English writer, critic, and artist who championed the Gothic Revival movement in architecture and the decorative arts and had a strong influence upon public taste in art in Victorian England" (Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature). His major works include Modern Painters (1843-1860), The Seven Lamps of Architecture (1849), The Stones of Venice (1851-1853), Lectures on Architecture and Painting (1854), The Political Economy of Art (1857), Unto This Last (1862), Essays on Political Economy (1862-1863, later Munera Pulveris, 1872), Sesame and Lilies (1865), and Fors Clavigera: Letters to the Workmen and Labourers of Great Britain (1871-1884). His story The King of the Golden River (1851) was one of the earliest English fantasies for children. Sir Ernest Ridley Debenham, 1st Baronet (26 May 1865-25 December 1952), was a British businessman. He was responsible for the considerable expansion of the family's retail and wholesale drapery firm between 1892 and 1927. Educated at Marlborough College and Trinity College, Cambridge, he joined the successful business in Wigmore Street, London, which had been run by his grandfather and father. His restructuring activities led to the splitting of the manufacturing from the retail side of the business, under the name Debenham & Freebody (Freebody was the maiden name of his grandmother). He effected a merger with Marshall & Snelgrove as well as a takeover of Harvey Nichols. He was noted for his paternalistic attitude towards his staff, providing medical and educational support. He was also a pioneer in the dairy industry. On his retirement he sold most of his shares in the firm for £1.8M, so severing his family's connections with the retail chain that still bears his name. He was created a Baronet, of Bladen in the County of Dorset, in 1931 (Wikipedia).

        Observations of a Naturalist in the Pacific between 1896 and 1899

      London, Macmillan and Co., , 1903. 2 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to spines, in dust jackets. Frontispiece to each and 12 other plates in all, six coloured maps, 2 of them folding lithographs. Some foxing, small nick at the head of the upper board of Volume II, but otherwise very good, unopened, in slightly rubbed and chipped, but almost entirely complete dust jackets, a very handsome set. First Edition. Portmanteau work combining Guppy's geological and physical observations of Vanua Levu, with his meticulous study of plant dispersal around the Pacific. Described by a recent journal of oceanic plant dispersal as "the outstanding beachcomber of the C19th", it is probably for his work in the second volume that he is best remembered, a pioneering work on tropical drift seeds and fruits based on what a contemporary reviewer called "a course of observation which is truly Darwinian in its patience and method," whilst Man, the journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, considered it to "contain much of interest to the student of anthropology." An important work, here offered in striking condition.

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire Année complète 1903 EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Bureaux de la Revue, 1903. Fine. Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1903, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding Edition Editor at bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, small gilded iron and double gold mesh queue.Douze January to December 1903. Hedges numbers conservées.Chaque number is illustrated with a literary xylographie.Contributions Henry Ghéon, André Gide ("Bathsheba, dramatic poem"), Charles Guerin, Walt Whitman, Francis Jammes, Nietzsche ("European Nihilism") etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine belonging to the first wave of small symbolist journals. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular collaborators, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. L'Ermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time like the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] that deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his symbolist spirit, employees are more interested in poetry than fiction. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, believes that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddling the end of the century aesthetics and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1903. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Henri Ghéon, André Gide ("Bethsabé, poème dramatique"), Charles Guérin, Walt Whitman, Francis Jammes, Nietzsche ("Le Nihilisme européen"), etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

      Paris: Hetzel, 1903. Fine. Hetzel, Paris s.d. (1903), 12x19cm, 2 volumes reliés. - First edition, for which there were no large paper copies. §Modern pastiche bindings by P. Goy & C. Vilaine, half bronze calf Bradel bindings over marbled paper boards, gilt fillets to spine, covers mounted on guards and preserved. §Very rare autograph inscription from Jules Vernie to [Achille] Tournier, prefect of the Somme at the time, and also enriched with a calling card from Jules Verne mounted on guards. §With original illustrations by L. Benett. §Jules Verne moved to Amiens, his wife's home town, in 1871: "Due to a wish of my wife's, I am settling in Amiens, a calm, orderly town, of even temper; society here is both cordial and well-read. We are near Paris, near enough to catch the rays without the unbearable noise and the sterile agitation. But to tell you the truth, my Saint-Michel remains moored in Crotoy." His affection for the region did not cease to grow and he never again left the capital of Picardy, taking an active part in local politics. Appointed director of the Academy of Sciences, Literature and Arts in 1875, he gave a famous speech on the occasion: "An ideal city: Amiens in the year 2000." In 1888, he was elected to the Municipal Council, of which he remained a member till 1903. It was the Prefect of the Somme who gave him his decoration when he was made an Officer of the Legion d'Honneur in 1892. "People often ask me why I live in Amiens, I who am so Parisian by instinct. Well, it's because - like I told you - I have Breton blood, I enjoy peace and I could not be happier anywhere than in a monastery. A calm life of study and work is my pleasure" (June 1893 in MacClure's Magazine). §A very good copy. % - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers. Reliures à la bradel en demi veau bronze, dos lisses ornés de filets dorés, plats de papier marbré, couvertures montées sur onglets conservées, reliures pastiches modernes signées de P. Goy & C. Vilaine. Très rare envoi autographe signé de Jules Verne à [Achille] Tournier, alors préfet de la Somme, enrichi d'une carte de visite de Jules Verne montée sur onglet. Ouvrage orné d'illustrations originales de L. Benett. Jules Verne s'installe à Amiens, ville natale de sa femme, en 1871: « Sur le désir de ma femme je me fixe à Amiens, ville sage, policée, d'humeur égale, la société y est cordiale et lettrée. On est près de Paris, assez pour en avoir le reflet, sans le bruit insupportable et l'agitation stérile. Et pour tout dire, mon Saint-Michel reste amarré au Crotoy. ». Son affection pour la région ne cessera de croître et il ne quittera plus la capitale picarde, participant activement à la vie politique locale. Nommé directeur de l'Académie des Sciences, Belles-Lettres et Arts, en 1875 il prononce à cette occasion un discours resté célèbre : "Une Ville idéale : Amiens en l'an 2000." En 1888 il est élu au conseil municipal d'Amiens où il siège jusqu'en 1903. C'est le préfet de la Somme qui lui remet sa décoration lorsqu'il est promu officier de la légion d'honneur en 1892. "Les gens me demandent souvent, pourquoi je réside à Amiens, moi qui suis si complètement Parisien d'instinct. Eh bien, parce que, comme je vous ai dit, j'ai du sang breton, et que j'aime la tranquillité, et je ne pourrais être plus heureux que dans un cloître. Une vie calme d'étude et de travail fait ma joie. " ( juin 1893, in Mac Clure's magazine). Bel exemplaire.

        Correspondence of Pearl Doris Reed, of Indianapolis, Indiana, to Homer Jarrett, of Harris County, Georgia and Indianapolis, 1903-1905

      41 letters, 161 manuscript pages, with retained mailing envelopes, dated 17 May 1903 to 28 November 1905. The letters in this collection were written by Pearl Doris Reed, a young African-American woman, when she was between 17 - 19 years old. The first five letters were written by Pearl from her residence at 2714 Kenwood Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana. After these five letters, the remaining ones are written from 2730 Kenwood Avenue, which appears to have been the same house, but the numbering system changed. Pearl writes the first two letters to her correspondent, Homer Jarrett, at the Exchange Hotel, Union Stockyards, Indianapolis, Indiana, where Jarrett was staying temporarily. She wrote to Homer at a different address in Indianapolis before writing him in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Homer then returns to Indianapolis where the correspondence resumes for sixteen letters at a couple of addresses in Indianapolis before we find Homer again in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Homer returns to Indianapolis before he returns to Hot Springs, where she sends 8 letters. After this trip to Hot Springs, we find Pearl writing five letters to Homer at St. Louis, Missouri, then he moves on to French Lick, Indiana, where Pearl writes two letters before he returns to Indianapolis and the correspondence ends with Pearl's final two letters. Pearl Doris Reed (1886-1984)Pearl Doris Reed was born 5 March 1886 in Lebanon, Marion County, Kentucky. Her father was Beauford Edmund Averitt (1839-1926), a white physician. Pearl's father, Beauford E. Averitt, was the son of John Averitt and Elizabeth Tucker. Pearl's father died on 7 July 1926 and was buried at Ryder Cemetery, Lebanon, Kentucky.Pearl's mother was Anna Allen Reed (1853-1911). Anna Allen had eight children. Her oldest daughter was listed as a Campbell in the 1870 census and oldest son George was listed as "George Ray" in that census. It is unclear where the Campbell and Ray surnames came from, but perhaps they were children out of wedlock. Anna Allen had married a George Reed and when he died she married his brother, Palmer Reed. They had two children together - Sarah and Louise. Sometime after these two children were born, Palmer Reed left and Anna had a long term relationship with a white doctor named Beauford Edmund Averitt. Anna and Buford had four children together; Hugh was born in 1876, followed by Minnie in 1878, Clarence in 1882, and Pearl in 1886. Anna and Beauford do not appear to have ever lived together, and Beauford was always listed as single in the U.S. Census records.Pearl's mother Anna was listed in the 1880 and 1900 Census as being born in Kentucky, (as were her parents). According to an online genealogy at ancestry.com, Pearl's father (Beauford E. Averitt) was stated to have been "white," and a physician, who graduated Kentucky School of Medicine, in 1866 and University of Louisville, finishing in 1873. He practiced in Bradfordsville, Kentucky and died at Lebanon, Kentucky, where he was born.Pearl was one of at least eight children born to her mother; five of the others being: Sarah Jane Reed Busby (1870 - 1954); George Reed (1873 - 1945); Lillian Louise Reed Shoemaker (1873 - 1938); Hugh Reed Averette (1876 - 1951); Minnie Averette Reed Mullins (1878 - 1963). On the 1900 Census, Pearl, her mother, and some of her siblings are found enumerated in Indianapolis on Willard Street in a rental property. The family was listed as "black" and Pearl's mother listed herself as a widow. In the 1910 Census, Pearl is found living at Indianapolis, with her older brother George and her mother. Her mother was still listed as a widow, even though her husband did not die until 1926. Pearl, her mother, and her brother George, were listed as "mulattos." Pearl's mother Anna Allen Reed died the following year in 1911. She was buried at Mount Jackson Cemetery in Indianapolis, Indiana. Pearl's oldest brother was George Reed (1873-1945). He was born January 10, 1867 in Lebanon, Marion County, Kentucky. He never married and had no children but as the oldest son, he became the man of the house in the absence of a father. George migrated to Indianapolis as a young man to work at the Van Camp Canneries in 1887. During the next several years the whole Reed family followed George to Indianapolis.Pearl married in 1910 and her mother Anna died the following year in 1911; her brother George continued on living at 2730 Kenwood. Pearl, before her marriage had lived at this 2730 Kenwood Street address and it is from here that she writes to Homer Jarrett. While the letters offered here are friendly, courtship letters between Pearl and Homer Jarrett, Pearl never married Jarrett; she eventually married Dr. Alfred B. Cleage (1883-1957) on 29 September 1910, several years after this correspondence ends. Dr. Cleage was born in Lowden, Tennessee, on 15 May 1883. He moved his family to Detroit, Michigan in 1916 where he practiced medicine for forty-two years, sixteen of which he served on the staff at Receiving Hospital. Cleage was a graduate of Knoxville College, and the University of Indiana Medical School. He was a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha and Iota Boule Chapter of the Sigma Pi Phi Fraternities and active in the political and cultural life of Detroit. Dr. Cleage was a charter member of Central Congregational Church, and one of its most ardent financial supporters.Pearl Doris Reed Cleage became the founder of St. John's Presbyterian Church and the Shrine of the Black Madonna in Detroit. She was a Detroit resident, since at least 1916, after moving there with her husband and family. She often lectured on African-American history and was a member of the auxiliaries of the Iota Boule and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternities. She organized the West Side Human Relations Council in the 1930s. One of Pearl's sons was the Rev. Albert B. Cleage, Jr (1911-2000); another was Dr. Louis Cleage (1913-1994), with the others being Henry Cleage (1916-1996), Hugh Cleage (1918-2005), Barbara (Cleage) Martin, Gladys (Cleage) Evans and Anna (Cleage) Shreve. The 1920 Census lists Pearl, her husband, and their children all enumerated at Detroit, listing them as "mulattos." The 1930 and 1940 Census records lists Pearl, her husband, and her children, enumerated at Detroit only now they are listed as "negroes." Dr. Cleage died on 4 April 1957 and was buried at Detroit Memorial Park East, Warren, Macomb County; Michigan. Pearl died on 16 July 1982, while vacationing at Idlewild, Michigan, and was buried at Detroit Memorial Park East with her husband. Homer C. Jarrett (c1882-1959), formerly of Shiloh, Georgia, later of Boston, Massachusetts, correspondent of Pearl Doris ReedHomer C. Jarrett was the son of Julia Jarrett (1856 - ?) of Milners Cross Roads, Harris County, Georgia. Julia Jarrett was the daughter of Benjamin Jarrett and his wife Elizabeth. On 7 August 1867 Benjamin Jarrett is found registered on the "Returns of Qualified Voters and Reconstruction Oath Books" for Harris County. In the 1870 Census we first see Julia Jarrett. She is listed as being 18, living in her parent's (Ben and Elizabeth) household with her siblings: Ann, Puss, James, Jane. All of Julia's siblings (including Julia) were born before the Civil War, thus all were former slaves. In 1880, Julia Jarrett is found listed in the household of her parents at Milners Cross Road in Harris County, Georgia. She was born about 1856 and was the daughter of Benjamin and Lizzie Jarrett. Ben and his wife were listed as "mulattos" as were their children, including Julia. Julia's father Ben was listed as being born in Georgia about 1818, as were his parents. However, Julia's mother Lizzie, was listed as being born in Georgia about 1815, while Lizzie's mother was listed as born in "Africa," a survivor of the middle passage. In 1880, Julia's father Ben was listed as a farmer, with Julia working on the farm with him. In the household along with Julia and her parents were Julia's brother Jim and his wife Ellen. There were also seven different children, with various surnames, all listed as Ben's grandchildren. Several are listed under Julia, thus they may have been her children by various men. Although this point is not clear and would need to be investigated further.The 1900 Census for Milners Cross Roads District, Harris County, Georgia, is the first time we see Homer C. Jarrett enumerated. He was listed as 15 years old, putting his birth year about 1885. Other records have him listed as being born sometime between 1882 and 1888. He is listed in the household of his mother Julia Jarrett. There are at least six different Jarrett families listed on the census page. Julia Jarrett is living with her father Benjamin Jarrett, who was born in August 1818. Julia was listed as being born in June of 1856. She was a widow and the mother of nine children, all of whom were still living in 1900. Julia, her children, her parents, and her father's parents, all appear to have been born in Georgia, dating the family back to the 18th Century in Georgia. The other Jarrett household enumerated on this page is obviously relatives. Julia's father is listed as a farmer; three of her sons (Charles, Homer, Claude) are listed as farm laborers. We can assume that these Jarrett households possibly grew up on this section of land where they now lived; some of them (Julia who was born in 1856, her father Ben who was born in 1818) were slaves prior to the Civil War. Homer's other siblings living with him in 1900 were: Charles, Claude, Rosy, Eulus, Arthur, and Lizzie. Charles was the oldest born about 1879.In 1910, Julia Jarrett and her family were all still living at their rented place in Milners Cross Roads. The family is still farming, her father, Ben Jarrett, was still living at 94 years old. Homer was out of the house, presumably traveling, as he does not show up on the 1910 Census. It is known that he settled down in Boston, Massachusetts, at about this time or soon after, as he shows up in 1918 in Boston. On his WWI draft registration card, Homer Clifford Jarrett stated he was born 6 August 1882. At the time of the WWI draft card (12 Sept 1918) he was living in Boston at 91 W. Springfield Street, working as a "reamer" at the Fore River Shipbuilding Corporation in Quincy, Massachusetts. He gives "Julia Jarrett" of "Shiloh, Harris County, Georgia" as his nearest relative. Homer was listed as a "negro," short and slender, with blue eyes and black hair.In 1920, Homer Jarrett is found living at 5 Woodbine Street, amongst other African-Americans, Jews, and Irish, around the Dudley Square and Roxbury borders. He was listed in 1920 as working on his own in real estate. The block where he was renting included a number of other "mulatto's" enumerated, along with the Irish and Jews. The 1930 Census shows Homer boarding at 365 Northampton Street, which appears to be in the African-American Boston neighborhood of Roxbury. He is listed as working in real estate on his own account. In 1940, we find Homer Jarrett still enumerated in Boston and still working on his own account as a real estate operator. He was listed at 51 years of age, single, and renting a house at 70 Williams Street with two other men. He had been living on Williams Street since at least 1935. The other renters were also African-American from the South. This address also appears to be located in the Roxbury neighborhood.In 1942, Homer registered for the WWII draft. He was still living in Boston (365 Northampton St.). His date of birth was given as 6 August 1888, which is six years younger than the birth date given on his WWI draft registration, thus he made himself older on his WWI draft registration application. He states he was born in Harris County, Georgia and that his brother Claude Jarrett (of Chicago) would always know his location. For his employment, Homer stated he was "in business" at 973 Tremont St., in Boston, which may be his real estate business, not clear. His WWII draft registration gives us further details of Homer's physical description, his skin color was light brown, eyes blue, and he stood 5'8" and weighed 185 pounds. With blue eyes and light brown skin tone, we can assume Homer was of mixed race, which is evidenced on the 1920 Census where he is listed as a "mulatto."Homer C. Jarrett was still being listed in the Boston city directories in 1955, still in real estate with his office at the Tremont Street address, and living at 365 Northampton. Homer appears to have died on18 October 1959. He was still living in Boston at the time of his death. He does not appear to ever have married. *Genealogy of the Jarrett family gathered from www.ancestry.comWilliam Copeland, Slave OwnerIn 1883-1887, the Valley Plains Militia District (Shiloh Post Office) shows Benjamin Jarrett listed as a "freedman" and working for "W. Copeland," showing that Jarrett had previously been a slave, and his children were likely slaves as well. William Copeland was a large slave owner in Harris County, Georgia. The 1860 Slave Census shows him owning 75 slaves between the ages of 3 months and 75 years of age. Several of these slaves would have been about the age of Benjamin Jarrett. Copeland was enumerated on this slave schedule among the Trammell and Sparks families. Copeland and Trammell are the same surnames that some of the mulatto children, Benjamin Jarrett's grandchildren, were given that appear on the census records of 1880.In an online post about the plantation records of William Copeland* we find that William Copeland, Sr. (father of the above mentioned William Copeland), died and his estate (along with his slaves) was divided up amongst his five children, four sons and a daughter. The sons were William, Alexander, Baldwin and Peter, with the daughter being Martha Mullins. Peter had died thus his share went to his children, one of whom was Trammell. The grandchildren of Benjamin Jarrett as they appeared on the 1880 Census had the surnames of Mullins, Trammell, and Copeland. William Copeland, Sr.'s will, showed several of the slaves were named "Ben," thus we can be fairly certain, that Julia and her father Ben were slaves of William Copeland's family. According to this online posting, Julia's mother is supposed to have been of East Indian descent.*https://boards.ancestry.com/thread.aspx?mv=flat&m=1285&p=localities.northam.usa.states.georgia.counties.harris Sample Quotations:"January 27, 1904Homer - I received your letter about fifteen minutes ago and was pleased that you should be so solicitous of our welfare as to write to inquire about our health. .. You seem to be hurt over my calling you a coward. I said it because, at the time, you acted like one, but otherwise I do not think you are. Forgive me if I spoke too plainly for I did you a wrong in doing so perhaps. You must also forgive me for causing you to break your vow, in accompanying us to church and home. You should not have broken it Homer. You told me once before that you would forget me and I told you that I would help you ..." "January 31, 1904 Homer - Your letter was received and I was rather surprised at the way you misunderstood everything that I said in my letter. I did not mean that any one out here would try to injure you for the boys all like you and respect you. They often speak of you with praise and are always glad to see you whenever you come out. You will please note that I meant that you would probably neglect your studies and thereby fail to make your grade if you thought of me often ..." One of Pearl's letters shows that Homer Jarrett did not much care for Pearl's mother:"2730 Kenwood Ave, Oct 7th /04Mr. Jarrett: -Homer, for the evil thoughts and words concerning my mother, which you spoke a few weeks ago, I forgive you as I hope to be forgiven, of my many sins and faults.My mother does not know anything about it and has often asked why you never visit any more. She shall never learn your terrible thoughts of her. She will always think you one of the most gentle young men in the city, if I can help it.Sincerely, Pearl D. Reed" "November 27, 1904 Mr. Jarrett, ... I was glad to hear that you spent a pleasant evening Thanksgiving, and, that intend to visit my church again... Don't you know Homer, that when I read that you had to work Sunday it flashed upon me suddenly that you gave me to understand Thursday that you did not work on Sundays and that your place of business was closed on that day. Did you make the mistake or was it mine? I hope that it was mine. Did you ever stop to think that we are constantly finding fault with each one another and that we can not understand each other? If it is not you, it is me, but I hope that it is my mistake this time..." Another letter shows that Homer and Pearl's relationship was not meant to be, as he thought her to be "very contrary and flighty":"2730 Kenwood Ave, Indianapolis, Ind., Jan. 18th, /05Mr. Jarrett:- Homer, having just returned from a long walk with Helen, Jim & Ben, I wish to speak with you. I shall pretend that I see you and I can get on nicer or better.Homer, I am sorry that our short acquaintance was so very disappointing to you and that I was and am so very contrary and flighty, but you will see Homer, that I can't be otherwise. I could not if I tried. Of course, I shall not say that I do try for I should speak untrue.Maybe it is just as well that we did not go any more than we did together. Listen, you speak of the gifts from you to me. Why, Homer. I would have given them back to you because I did not think myself worthy of them, do you understand? I was and am proud of the books and the parasol and shall always be, and love them.But, Homer, listen, if you do not believe anything that I say anymore, don't you think that I had better cease writing to you?You do not care for me or you would trust me. Do you know that people generally trust those that they care for? Do you always expect proof of things? For you never think of trusting anybody, even those you profess to care for? Homer.This being the case, I think we should cease to correspond don't you? You do, add would not, believe anything I should say, and so it, would be all of no avail.Mother is getting on nicely, and sends her best regards to you and advises you to be a good boy.Minnie & family are quite well. They send love and best wishes to you. The children often speak of you to me. Love from all to you. Glad you heard from your mother, and that she is well.Our church is carry on revival now and I think I shall attend tomorrow night.Homer good by, yours sincerely, Pearl D. Reed"A letter from 27 January 1905 shows that Pearl has an interest in the "Russian Rebellion" as she calls it and wonders if they sympathize with "poor negroes" in America:"#2730 Kenwood Ave, Indianapolis, Ind, Jan 27th /05Mr. Jarrett: -Homer, your letter was received O.k. Very glad to hear from you so soon. How are you? Hope you are well as I am. We are having very cold weather here just now, and have had several heavy snows...I went for a walk about 2:30 pm. I walked all the way to the library and back. You have no idea how I enjoyed the walk Homer. I felt rather blue when I left home, but by the time I reached it again I thought life was worth the living after all. Really, there is nothing like walking to cause you to forget your petty troubles and ills I think. Don't you think so too? The book I got is "Bayou Folk," by Kate Chopin. Have you read it, or any of her works?Are you interested in the Russian Rebellion? I feel very sorry for them, the poor ones I mean, and I hope that they will get their rights and desires in the end, but I wonder if they sympathized with the poor negro when he was in as bad, if not worse, a plight as themselves. All of the Czar's troubles are coming at once it seems. The "Japs" proved too much for them, and then the "people" turned as it were, on them. I think his son that he longed and prayed for has brought him ill luck so far.I have not been any place lately and Hugh and I shall go to the Grand Opera House Saturday if nothing happens to prevent it...Homer tell me about yourself won't you? You never tell me what you are doing at all. Are you not glad you are not here in this seven wraths? I envy you, your location just now. Please pity us poor mortals Homer....Write soon Homer, yours sincerely, Pearl Doris Reed" As the correspondence continues, it becomes more and more clear that any relationship between Pearl and Homer was doomed:"#2730 Kenwood Ave, Indianapolis, In., Feb 6th /05Dear Homer: -Your letter was received a few hours ago and I find you as obstinate as ever...Homer, our acquaintance was very pleasant to me. I am only sorry that you did not find it so, and, were continually finding fault with me.You are not aware of the fact that you are the first and only person who ever told me that I was of a 'flighty disposition.' You seem to understand me better than anyone that I've come in contact with. Homer it seems that you should know why I did not turn to you?Remember, I am only sorry for my 'flighty disposition' in so much as it displeases you. I detest to displease anyone.It seems that I've been very very willful, disagreeably flighty and everything else that I should not, Homer, in your eyes.Since all confidence is lost, why I think the case is hopeless. I should not care for anyone that I had no faith in and I do not think that anyone loves without it. I do not think I should care for that love at any rate, for it would not satisfy me.... Pearl D. Reed" One of Pearl's letters to Homer mentions a murder that happened on May 17th, 1905. According to the Fort Smith Times (Fort Smith, Arkansas) at Hot Springs, an African-American man by the name of Henry Smith, in a jealous rage, shot his wife Mollie to death, wounded a male friend of hers, named Will Lou, and nearly killed his own daughter who was with the couple. The woman, daughter and Lou were returning from a fishing expedition with a group of friends and were embarking from their wagon outside the Roanoke Baptist Church. Henry Smith showed up in a fit of rage. After shooting his wife and Lou, he ran to a nearby saloon, traded his revolver for a bottle of whiskey, drank half of it, and then turned himself in to the Sheriff. The murdered woman was the sister of Jack Page, a well-known African-American attorney at Hot Springs."#2730 Kenwood Ave, Indianapolis, May 22nd, /05"Dear Homer: - ...Homer I think you are rather reckless, do you know it? To think of running in the direction of shooting! Why you might have been shot yourself. You touching the girl that was shot you said, think as if it were nothing, and don't you know a have a positive horror of dead people that I can't over come really, I try to but I can't. I wonder why? I am actually afraid of them. I think that I am more afraid of dead people than I am to die.... Pearl D. Reed"
