        Two Years Before The Mast

      London and Glasgow: Collins' Clear-Type Press, 1904. - Two Years Before The Mast Illustrated by Arthur Rackham[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. DANA, R[ichard] H[enry]. Two Years Before The Mast. London and Glasgow: Collins' Clear-Type Press, [September, 1904]. First edition, first issue. Octavo (7 1/8 x 4 3/4 inches; 181 x 121 mm.). 304 pp. Title-page printed in black without any mention of Arthur Rackham. Eight color plates (all with page numbers in lower right-hand corner).Original red cloth, front cover pictorially stamped with a representation of a whaling ship, with the name SCUD plainly visible on the bows. The ship has three men standing in the bow waiting for a canoe with two Indians, allin dark blue, black and white. The title is in dark blue with white shadows. The spine has a picture of an Indian in blue and white, and the title is in a gold panel with the author's name in full in dark blue below. Some light pencil lining and light marginal foxing throughout, neat repair to inner margin of color-plate facing page 33, otherwise a near fine copy of this rather scarce little book.Latimore and Haskell, page 23. Riall, page 57. Note: There are several bindings of this book. The one at hand seems to combine characteristics from several issues described by Latimore and Haskell. Riall mentions an earlier September 1904 issue, bound in green or pink cloth. The illustrations in the September issue have the number of the page they illustrate in the lower right-hand corner, while there are no page numbers on the plates of the December issue. Later editions have only the name "R.H. Dana" on the spine.This book has always been a bibliographic puzzle, but we are certain that this is one of the earliest printings from September 1904.We have sold (more than thirty years ago) a December 1904 copy with the "Scud" picture on the front cover and with the authors name in full on the spine BUT the title-page was printed in red and black and none of the plates had the page number in the lower right hand corner. This copy had a school prize label dated December 1904.Included is a copy of a book by Captain Mayne Reid entitled The Scalp Hunters: A Romance of Northern Mexico. London and Glasgow: Collins' Clear-Type Press, [n.d.] but ca. 1904. This book is bound in the same red cloth and has the identical design to Two Years Before the Mast on the front cover and the spine. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Engine Company No. 126. Manuscript Log Book: 1902-1904]

      New York: n.p., 1904. First edition. Brown cloth and leather. Binding fair to good-only, spine mostly chipped, backstrip loosening, leather mostly worn with large chips at corners and along spine; very good clean contents, leaves just browning at edges, a few leaves with creased corners.. [24], 800 pp. Four hundred daily reports on fires and other actions of Engine Company 126, running from December 9, 1902, through May 23, 1904). Engine Company 126 (originally No. 26 and currently No. 226) was located in Boerum Hill at 409 State Street in a 1889 simple brick building embellished with corbelled brick and a cast-iron crest (AIA Guide to New York City, B16). It consisted of one engine and one hose wagon and was part of the very overworked and understaffed Brooklyn and Queens Command which had experienced a 13% increase in fires without any additional staff. No. 26 covered "Long Island College Hospital, all of the stores in the shopping district, Packer Institute, Polytechnic Institute, the court houses and City Hall, and several other schools, asylums and orphanages, and other civic, commercial and private buildings. They were also responsible for the huge grain elevators on the shores of the Erie Basin.... With all of the important buildings in the area, this engine company was busy and on constant alert. On the night of December 26, 1902, the engine responded to a call about a fire at the Arbuckle Cooperage, at 214 Plymouth Street, in what is now Dumbo. Three firefighters lost their lives when a wall of the building collapsed on them. The cooperage made barrels, and was surrounded by other factories including those that manufactured paint, a cork factory, a brewery and a machine shop, all of which had flammable materials and could have easily also caught fire and exploded. Two of the men were from other firehouses, but Engine 26 lost Lt. William Jeffrey, who was crushed in the collapse," (Brownstoner, Blog of 1/2/15) The fire and the death of William Jeffrey is reported on pp. 41-42 of the logbook. Less than a month later an act of heroism in Engine Company 126 stood out and was noted in the Fire Department's Annual Report: of the dozen or so Roll Of Merit mentions for Rescues at Personal Risk, in Line of Duty. "January 13, 1903-By Foreman Thomas F. O'Connor, Engine Company 126. At the fire at No. 486 Atlantic Avenue, at 2.17 A. M., Station 57, Foreman Thomas F. O'Connor, Engine Company 126, rescued Miss Jennie Rakestow, age fourteen years; Miss Lottie Rakestow, age sixteen years, and Mrs. Emily Rakestow, age forty-eight years, from the third floor front room, by scaling ladder. On the arrival of Engine Company 126 the fire was under good headway in the building, and exit by stairway was impossible. Screams were heard coming from the upper portion of the building, but no persons could be seen from the street, on account of the dense smoke from the fire. Foreman O'Connor ascended the scaling ladder to the third story window and discovered the above-named persons being rapidly overcome by smoke and heat. The window casings were frozen, and the inmates were unable to open them. They had broken one of the windows to obtain fresh air. The Foreman broke the balance of the glass in the framework of the window, and carried them down the scaling ladder to the street with considerable difficulty, for the reason that they had become somewhat hysterical, causing the ladder to sway from side to side. Were it not for the bravery and good judgment displayed by Foreman O'Connor the rescued persons might have been seriously injured by falling from the ladder," (Report of the Fire Department of the City of New York for the Year 1903, pp. 232-233). O'Connor would receive a gold metal for this action. The fire is reported in the logbook on page 62, and the details of the rescue on page 63 under additional comments. The building, then the home of Hyman Rose's clothing store, was saved and is currently the location of the Dar Us Salam Bookstore.

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

      London: Privately Printed, [1904]. First edition, 4to, 28pp., 292 plates, black and white and sepia-tone, from paintings, etc., executed by MM. Braun, Clement & Co, Paris and Dornach, marbled endpapers, cont. half morocco, t.e.g. uncut, lightly rubbed otherwise a very nice copy. Approximately 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, etc. Charles Fairfax Murray is believed to have received early art training from Richard Gainsborough Dupont, became a protege of John Ruskin, and joined Edward Burne-Jones as a studio assistant. Soon he was also assisting William Morris and Rosetti. While in Italy, as an agent for the Director of the National Gallery and other private collectors, Murray built his own Italian Old Master collection. He returned to England and resumed his friendships with Burne-Jones, William Morris, and their circle in the Arts & Crafts Movement. He also developed great American art collections, described by Lockett Agnew as "the finest judge of art in the world." Later, 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 pounds today.

        Original Handwritten Manuscript of The Scholar's Daughter

      [c. 1904-1906], [England] - Hardcover. The complete original manuscript for Beatrice Harraden's novel, The Scholar's Daughter, published by Methuen in 1906. It has been bound for presentation to her literary agent, A.P. Watt, with an inscription on the front free endpaper: "For my most kind friend Mr. A.P. Watt from Beatrice Harraden. a little token of gratitude for all the regard and kindness received from himself & his sons for so many years. Jan 28th 1913. I chose the M.S. of this book specially because the story was always one of which my friend has [?] with & most welcome appreciation." Beatrice Harraden (1864-1936) was an English novelist who was active in women's rights causes, and an ardent feminist and suffragette. Aspects of her life were incorporated in her work, as with this novel. She was involved as a reader for the Oxford English Dictionary, and this novel is set among lexicographers. Contemporary reviews of the book were mixed. The review in The Bookman states that the work is a clever little domestic drama written with zest and skill. "The title, a suggestive one, would seem to imply that we may expect something unscholarly from the daughter of a scholar." This review also states that there was a dramatic version of the story. The reviewer in The Academy writes that the story would do better as a light play than a novel. The book "has a great deal of fun in it but lacks conviction. Miss Harraden can do better work than this." A later letter to the editor states that the novel was first written as a play. The manuscript has corrections and changes throughout, along with a few tipped in pages from a typescript, and provides a fascinating look at the creative process of this New Woman writer. Bound in grey cloth with gilt title and author to front board. A rarity in very good condition. Small quarto. About 178 pages. AUTO/073115. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Congo Mission of the A.B.M.U

      Methuen Mass, 1904. Map in manuscript, diamond dyes, India ink and stencil on cloth. Scale approx. 1 inch : 35 miles. 38 x 55 in. Some minor staining but very good indeed. Map in manuscript, diamond dyes, India ink and stencil on cloth. Scale approx. 1 inch : 35 miles. 38 x 55 in. A remarkable survival and possibly the sole example produced. Bordered by Cameroon, French Congo and Angola on the left, and Rhodesia, German East Africa and Uganda on the right, the map is dominated by the Congo Free State which existed between 1885-1908. It was created at the behest of Belgium's King Leopold II and incorporates the area now covered by Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. With the Congo River in the center, the map includes Lakes Victoria and Malawi. Numerous tribes, African cities, and villages are noted. Missions include the Presbyterian Mission, the Methodist Mission, the Methodist Episcopal Mission, and the American Board. Towns and villages with established missions are underlined in red. Based in Methuen, Massachusetts, the cartographer Samuel Eleazer Mann (1853-1930) produced these large format missionary field maps for the American Baptist Missionary Union. The maps appear to be one-offs and were made for several of the Baptist Missions, though the A.B.M.U. was the largest client. This large format was typical of Mann's maps, Harvard has a copy of his map of Japan that is a similar size. The lower left corner of the map bears the name J. P. Goodwin and the date 1904. This is possibly John P. Goodwin, a Long Island born member of the A.B.M.U. Although his name is not clearly associated with the Congo Mission, it appears he must have owned this map as early as 1904, when the mission was still active. Established in 1814, the American Baptist Missionary Union (A.B.M.U) formerly known as the American Baptist Missionary Union and the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society is an international Protestant Christian missionary society. Sponsored by two American missionaries in Burma, Adoniram Judson and Ann Hasseltine Judson, it is the oldest Baptist missionary organization based in North America. Importantly, the ABMU was the first societies to voice concern of atrocities in the Congo Free State and as early as 1895 induced the US state department to visit.

        THE BALLAD OF READING GAOL

      Portland, Maine: Thomas B. Mosher, 1904. No. 9 OF 10 COPIES ON VELLUM signed by the publisher (of a total edition of 110) n. Hardcover. mm (). 3 p.l., 33, [1] pp., [1] leaf (colophon). No. 9 OF 10 COPIES ON VELLUM signed by the publisher (of a total edition of 110). Publisher's limp vellum, flat spine lettered in gilt. In a green cloth portfolio with silk ribbon ties. Bishop 13. Faint soiling to covers, perhaps a third of the leaves slightly yellow (as often with vellum printings), otherwise very fine, especially fresh and clean inside and out. This is the strictly limited luxury version of the Mosher edition of Wilde's long poem in six-line rhymed stanzas, written in France in 1897 after Wilde's release from jail in Reading. Indebted to Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" and Housman's "Shropshire Lad," it is generally considered to be Wilde's greatest poem. The title page identifies the author as "C.3.3.," Wilde's prisoner number based on his location in block C, floor three, cell three. The work is written in memory of Charles Thomas Wooldridge, a trooper in the Royal Horse Guards who was executed in 1896 for killing his wife in a jealous rage. It takes the viewpoint of an imprisoned man observing a fellow inmate who is to be hanged. Day says that the poem's theme is "society's cruelty in inflicting of punishment without understanding." The poem makes it clear that "the greatest pain is the one the wrongdoer suffers within himself." Despite the stigma attached to Wilde at the time (or perhaps because of the publicity related to his infamy), the poem was a considerable commercial success. It also was hailed by the critics as a successful change in direction in Wilde's poetry, characterized by a much greater expression of sincerity. Of private press publisher Thomas B. Mosher (1852-1923), Blumenthal says that he was "the first American to have established a sustained program . . . of splendid literary output in consistently felicitous typographic form." The books he produced between 1891 and 1923 were characterized by "fine paper, good workmanship, and an unassuming and quiet typographic elegance," a succinct summation of Mosher books in general and this attractive edition in particular.

        The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments, & Other Rites & Ceremonies of the Church, According to the Use of the Church of England; Together with the Psalter or Psalms of David ?

      M. Walter Dunne, [New York 1904 - [14], 386, [2] pp., plus [8] pp. inserted supplement. Folio. The Japan vellum issue of the authorized U.S. redaction of Ashbee's Essex House edition of the Prayer Book of Edward VII, with some 150 cuts after drawings by Ashbee, executed by W.H. Hooper and Clemence Housman. The proofs for this American printing were corrected by Dunne, and the text was printed at the Plimpton Press, in Norwood, Mass. The laid-in [8] pp. supplement is exclusive to the U.S. edition, is printed in red and black in a fashion akin to the main text, and records variants between the British and American texts. While the Essex House edition was limited to 400 copies on paper and ten on vellum, there is no explicit limitation stated in this edition. This is one of the copies on Japan vellum; an unknown number of copies were also printed on handmade paper. A much-above-the-norm copy of this book. Griffiths notes this edition in a note under the London edition, indicating (in error) that the difference between them consists of "one extra leaf." The colophon ascribes the binding design to the bindery of M. Walter Dunne. Griffith 1904.1n Full contemporary reddish brown crushed levant, raised bands, side panels elaborately gilt extra with enamel highlights of blue, pink and cream, gilt inner dentelles and suede doublures, silk ribbon marker weighted with a bronze medallion of Edward VII.

        In the Supreme Court of the United States, October Term, 1903

      1904. Souvenir of a Landmark Antitrust Case [Knox, Philander (1853-1921)]. [Northern Securities Co. v. United States]. In the Supreme Court of the United States, October Term, 1903. Northern Securities Company [et al.] v. United States of America, Appellee. Appeal for the Circuit Court of the United States for the District of Minnesota. Argument and Brief for the United States. [Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1904]. [iv], 94; [ii], ii, 180 pp. Two parts preceded by general title page. Contemporary morocco, gilt frames to boards, gilt title to spine, untrimmed edges. Moderate rubbing to extremities, with some wear to spine ends and corners, scuffing and light soiling to front board, which is slightly bowed, a few cracks to text block. Light toning to text, foxing in a few places, internally clean. * First edition. This volume, containing Attorney General Philander C. Knox's Supreme Court argument in the landmark Northern Securities Case, and the federal government's appeal of the case from the Circuit Court to the Supreme Court, was likely bound by Knox as a gift to a colleague or friend. Decided in 1904, the Northern Securities Case was a pivotal case in the legal history of the Progressive Era and the history of railroads in the American West. The Northern Securities Company was a powerful trust formed by J.P. Morgan and James G. Hill to control railroad trunk lines in the Northwest and into Chicago and stifle competition. President Roosevelt, seeing an opportunity to exert federal power against a business monopoly, instructed Knox to bring suit against the Northern Securities Company. Knox handled the case personally, writing the appeal from the decision of the Minnesota Circuit Court, and arguing the government's case before the U.S. Supreme Court. Invoking the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890, Knox argued that The Northern Securities Company acted in restraint of trade. The court's decision, on a 5-4 vote with Oliver Wendell Holmes and Chief Justice Melville Fuller dissenting, upheld the government's argument, affirming the constitutionality of the Sherman Antitrust Act.
