        Life-story of the child evangelist Lonnie Lawrence Dennis, written by himself

      London: The Christian Herald', [1904]. 100p., photographic frontispiece portrait of Dennis (full-length) and title page a second steel-engraved portrait, further illus. within (including himself with father and mother), 5x7.25 inches, boards with gilt title and author's long-haired portrait, corners mildly worn, closed tear to page 29; light handling wear and soil. Dennis, born in Atlanta, Georgia, to a French / Native American father and an African American / Native American mother, very early became a child evanglist preaching to African American audiences in Georgia.

In the 1930s Dennis became the leading American intellectual supporting fascism, to the point that he was tried for subversion in 1944 for his fascist views (the indictment was dismissed after the death of the trial's Judge)

        The Complete Writings of Charles Dudley Warner . . . Autograph Edition. Edited by Thomas R. Lounsbury

      Hartford, Conn.: The American Publishing Co., 1904, 1904. First edition, number 28 of 612 numbered sets, signed by the publisher and editor. BAL 21224. Bottom edges slightly rubbed; a fine, handsome set.. 15 vols, 8vo, red and purple full morocco by Jackel of New York, gilt decorations, inner dentelles and lettering, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Engraved title-pages and 60 photogravures. Tipped in between the limitation page and the frontis portrait is a fine four-page a.l.s. by Warner and a leaf of manuscript from his travel narrative In the Levant (1877). An outstanding example of a deluxe manuscript edition of an author's works, with a fine letter from Warner, dated Hartford Nov. 29, 1869, that discusses women's rights and Yosemite Falls. Among the illustrators are Frank T. Merrill, Edmund Garrett, Peter Newell, Dan Beard, and many of the plates are signed by the artists. This set has the quirky distinction of having nine volumes bound in red morocco and six volumes in purple, though every volume is numbered 28; for some reason this was intentional.

      1904. A Tale of the Seaboard. London and New York: Harper & Brothers, 1904. Original dark blue cloth decorated in light blue. First Edition of Conrad's great novel involving a South American silver mine, and the corruption and dishonesty fostered by its riches.~Conrad was extending his "Lord Jim" theme: that the man who slowly grows rich can be a victim of the silver, not its conqueror; that wealth is not something gained but a trap for those who relinquish, however momentarily, their sense of themselves...~It was no coincidence that Conrad was in severe financial straits during the years that he wrote these novels. Despite (or perhaps reflecting) the two and a half years Conrad spent laboring over NOSTROMO, the book was not widely acclaimed upon its publication:~The reviews were nearly all bound to discourage the reader. [John] Buchan's estimation is characteristic: "It is not a book which the casual reader will appreciate. The sequence of events has to be sought painfully through the mazes of irrelevancy with which the author tries to mislead us. But it is a book which will repay those who give it the close attention which it deserves." [Karl]~Today there are many readers, both those who love NOSTROMO and those who cannot get through it, who would still agree with Buchan.~It is believed that the first edition consisted of about 2000 copies; we find it to be rather scarce, about third or fourth among Conrad's books. This is a near-fine copy, with some faint speckling of the front cover cloth but with scarcely any wear; atypically for this thick wove paper, there is no foxing on the leaves within. Cagle A10a.1; one of the "Modern Library 100" great novels of the 20th Century.

        Large Collection of Professional Photographs of the Astor Hotel in Times Square

      New York, 1904-c.1950s. Hardcover. Very Good+. Collection of 182 b/w or sepia photographs (silver prints); ranging in size from about 7x9 to 11x14 inches; mounted in two albums, or loose, sometimes with heavy cardstock mount or paper backing (from having been removed from an album, see below); offers exteriors views of the hotel from construction to completion, and interior views of private and public rooms in the hotel, from its construction in 1904 to a later remodel in perhaps 1935 (the hotel was remodeled again in 1949, but these images don't seem to extend that late -- there are just a few images showing the Sheraton-Astor, when it was briefly bought and renamed in 1954). The collection breaks down as follows: Large album of 42 mounted photographs from around the newly-opened hotel, circa 1904, almost all credited in mount and negative to Joseph Byron of New York, a few to Drucker & Co. (half morocco oblong folio; lacking front board, several photographs removed ) /// Large album of 33 later Hotel Astor photographs, c. 1933, linen-backed, signed in the negative by "Byron Co." /// 12 large Byron photographs of the hotel, about 11x14 inches, most mounted, most worn and/or faded /// Disbound album of 28 Drucker & Co. photographs of the hotel, some showing second-phase construction, 1908 and undated /// Group of 67 8 x 10 inch photographs of the hotel, some of them after being renamed the Sheraton-Astor in 1954, by William F. Howland (20), Empire Photographers (10), and miscellaneous or unknown photographers (37), circa 1920s-1950s. Built at a cost of $7,000,000 on land leased from William Waldorf Astor (great-grandson of John Jacob Astor, the fur trader), the 11-story, 35,000-square-feet Hotel Astor was designed in the French Renaissance "Beaux Arts" style by architects Charles W. Clinton and William H. Russell, who imitated many features from the old Waldorf-Astoria on 34th Street. The Hotel Astor opened in September 1904, dazzling guests with its enormous public rooms, most decorated with themes. A year later the elaborate roof garden was opened. The former site of the hotel, the block bounded by Broadway, Astor Plaza, West 44th Street, and West 45th Street, is now occupied by the high-rise 54-story office tower One Astor Plaza.

        A Selection from the Collection of Drawings by the Old Masters Formed by C. Fairfax Murray

      Privately Printed, London 1904 - Charles Fairfax Murray, born in England in 1849, possibly received early training in art from Richard Gainsborough Dupont. A commissioned portrait painter by the age of 16, he became a protege of John Ruskin, and joined Edward Burne-Jones as a studio assistant and became a part of the Pre-Raphaelite movement at the time. Soon he was also assisting William Morris and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. In 1873 he made a second trip to Rome at Ruskin's expense to copy the Botticelli frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. He stayed in Italy for 13 years, first in Siena and then in Florence, copying for Ruskin, painting portraits and acting as an agent for the Director of the National Gallery and other private collectors. He built his own Italian Old Master collection. Returning to England, he continued his work as a portrait painter, and resumed his friendships with Burne-Jones, William Morris, and their circle in the Arts & Crafts Movement. He also helped develop some great American art collections, described by Lockett Agnew as "the finest judge of art in the world." In 1903 as a result of a rheumatic hand, Murray gave up painting, but continued to be a renowned agent, collector, and connoisseur. He just missed being named the Director of the National Gallery. In 1909, having bought and sold several lots of rare books and collections to museums and galleries, he made his major sale -- his personal collection of 1400 Old Master drawings, to American banker John Pierpont Morgan for a sum almost equivalent to £3,000,000 today. A rare copy in that after the sale, Morgan purchased remaining copies and had his own title page tipped in. Henry John Bell, whose bookplate is attached to the front pastedown, was known as the foremost collector of Dove's Bindery bindings while its founder, Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson was still living (Tidcombe, The Doves Bindery, p. 107). This copy was bound by the French binder Lucien Broca. Unpaginated. Folio. Some 150 artists are represented from the schools of Giotto, Pollajuolo, Florentine 15th Century, Perugino, Lombard School 15th Century, Parmigiano, North Italian, Venetian School 18th Century, Rembrandt, the Dutch School, Flemish School, Early German, and more. Black & white and sepia-tone illustrations with no foxing. Green cloth cover has fine dark brown leather on corners and spine, set off with gilt rules. Spine has five raised bands with gilt rules and boxes. Gilt title reads "Murray Collection of Drawings 1905." There is a trace of shelfwear on back of spine at bands and upper and lower ends. Corners very lightly bumped, and light wear shows on bottom edge. Endpapers are glossy marbled paper in shades of blues and browns. Bookplate of Henry John and Minnie Caroline Bell on front pastedown. After a two-page introduction and a 23-page index, the book shows 292 exquisite full-page plates, executed by MM. Braun, Clement & Cie, Paris and Dornach. This handsome volume, with black and white or sepia toned plates, is a rare treasure for the collector. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
