        Forestry] A chromolithographed and manuscript charter for the Toledo, Ohio, branch or 'court' of the Order of Independent Foresters

      Toronto Lithographing Co. Ltd, Toronto 1904 - Lithographed and manuscript text within elaborate chromolithographic surround. Overall toning, some expert small repaired tears. A very fine example of the chromolithographer's art. This exuberant example of turn-of-the-20th-century design, incorporating many symbolic elements - some of a general nature (personifications of Liberty, Justice, Benevolence and Truth), others of a more specific nature - the moose's head, the horn, bow and arrows, etc. This is a relatively early example of an Independent Order of Foresters charter - the Order originated in New Jersey in 1874 as a mutual benefit society. Currently, the majority of its over one million members are from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. The charter is largely lithographic - only the date, the fourteen names of the 'First Staff of Officers' and details of the name and location of the Toledo 'court' are in manuscript.

        Seven Original Photographs, with related material

      - A fascinating collection of seven images taken and printed by Lewis W. Hine, several of his nephew George C. Rich, all of which came from the estate of Rich himself (Hine married Sara Ann Rich in 1904, George was the son of her brother Walter). In 1908 Hine became the photographer for the The National Child Labor Committee, and by all accounts his photographs were instrumental in changing the child labor laws in the United States, particularly in mills, mines, and factories. In his efforts, he apparently utilized his nephew as a subject for his photographs illustrating child labor.As follows:1. Approximately 5" x 7" gold-toned platinum portrait print on textured paper stock of an adolescent George C. Rich in cap. About fine. Captioned in pencil on verso in the hand of George Rich: "George Rich by Lewis Hine."2. Approximately 5" x 7" gelatin silver portrait print of an adolescent George C. Rich in cap. Small chip in upper right corner, very good. Captioned in pencil on verso in the hand of George Rich: "George C. Rich Picture by Lewis Hine." Note this is the identical image to #1 in a different photographic process.3. Approximately 5" x 7" gold-toned platinum portrait print of George C. Rich posed in profile. About fine. Captioned in pencil on verso in the hand of George Rich: "George C. Rich Picture by Lewis Hine."4. Approximately 4" x 6" gelatin silver portrait print of W.C. Rich (George C. Rich's father). Small paper remnant on verso, about fine. Captioned in pencil on verso in the hand of George Rich: "W. C. Rich Picture by Lewis Hine."5. Approximately 5.75" x 3.75" albumen print of a tractor in the field harvest. Very slightly faced, else about fine. Captioned in pencil on verso in the hand of George Rich: " Combing Oats. Hine Photo."6. Approximately 5.75" x 3.75" albumen print of men, women, and children (one of whom might be George Rich) in a swimming hole in a rather desolate looking landscape. Very slightly faced, else about fine. Captioned in pencil on verso in the hand of George Rich: "Swimming Hole Garland. Hine Photo."7. Approximately 10" x 8" gelatin silver print of a man driving two cows on a road against a rural landscape. Nicks in three corners, not really affecting the image, otherwise a very deep and rich image, near fine. Signed on verso by "Lewis W. Hine (Delaware County, N.Y.)", and below that, written in Rich's hand: "Property of George & Doeretta Rich. Franklin, N.Y."With:8. Pamphlet: "For Child Labor Day 1921."
