        THE COLONEL'S DREAM

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., Inc., 1905. . First printing. . Very good condition in red cloth with gold lettering on the front cover and spine: a gift inscription on the front endpaper, lower corners slightly bumped and some slight spine slant - but overall a very attractive copy, with little soiling to the covers, bright lettering, and clean, flexible pages. . The very uncommon first issue with Chesnutt's name misspelled on both the front cover and the spine; this error was caught by Chesnutt when a sample was sent to him at the beginning of July, and he was assured by the publisher on July 5th that 'not a great number' had been bound thus. This novel, the last to be published during his lifetime (and published just 6 years after his first book) was a commercial failure. 294 pages.

        The Drafter of the 14th Amendment Quotes Abolitionist Congressman Thaddeus Stevens

      1905 - Autograph Note Signed. 1 p., 8 1/4 x 4 1/4 in. Complete TranscriptIn the debate in the C. [Congressional] Globe, you will see that the great Statesman and true patriot, Hon. Thadeus [sic] Stevens said "The propositions fall short of my wishes, but they fulfill my hopes." &c. I am very busy in my judicial duties, or would write you more fully. S.N.Historical BackgroundStephen Neal (1817-1905) was an Indiana lawyer. He served in the state legislature and was later a judge. In 1866, he drafted what would become the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Legend has it that he presented it his friend, Indiana Congressman Godlove S. Orth, and that Congress passed the draft as Neal had written it. This is unlikely; Ohio Congressman John Bingham is usually given credit as the amendment's principal author, to say nothing of Congressional machinations that make passage of anything without revision nearly impossible.Neal is actually summarizing Stevens's arguments in the House of Representatives:"When I say that we should rejoice at such completion [of the amendment], I do not thereby intend so much to express joy at the superior excellence of the scheme, as that there is to be a scheme-a scheme containing much positive good, as well, I am bound to admit, as the omission of many better things.""Do you inquire why, holding these views and possessing some will of my own, I accept so imperfect a proposition? I answer, because I live among men and not among angels; among men as intelligent, as determined, and as independent as myself, who, not agreeing with me, do not choose to yield their opinions to mine. Mutual concession, therefore, is our only resort, or mutual hostilities. We might well have been justified in making renewed and more strenuous efforts for a better plan could we have had the coperation of the Executive.""A few words will suffice to explain the changes made by the Senate in the proposition which we sent to them.""You perceive that while I see much good in the proposition I do not pretend to be satisfied with it. And yet I am anxious for its speedy adoption, for I dread delay. The danger is that before any Constitutional guards shall have been adopted Congress will be flooded by rebels and rebel sympathizers.Hence, I say, let us no longer delay; take what we can get now, and hope for better things in further legislation; in enabling acts or other provisions."From the Congressional Globe, June 13, 1866, p. 3148.

        1905 Outdoor Pastimes American Hunter TEDDY ROOSEVELT

      London - Longmans, Green & Co., 1905 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A First Edition of Roosevelt's account of his hunting excursionsFirst UK EditionBound in green cloth with gilt lettering and pictorial detailTheodore D. Roosevelt (18581919), also known as T. R. , and to the public (but never to friends and intimates) as Teddy, was the 26th President of the United States. A leader of the Republican Party and of the Progressive Party, he was a Governor of New York and a professional historian, naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier. He is most famous for his personality: his energy, his vast range of interests and achievements, his model of masculinity, and his cowboy image. Originating from a story from one of Roosevelt's hunting expeditions, teddy bears are named after him. His prodigious literary output includes twenty-six books, over a thousand magazine articles, thousands of speeches and letters. President Harrison, after his election in 1889, appointed Roosevelt as a member of the Civil Service Commission of which he later became president. This office he retained until 1895 when he undertook the direction of the Police Department of New York City. In 1897 he joined President McKinley's administration as assistant secretary of the Navy. While in this office he actively prepared for the Cuban War, which he saw was coming, and when it broke out in 1898, went to Cuba as lieutenant colonel of a regiment of volunteer cavalry, which he himself had raised among the hunters and cowboys of the West. He won great fame as leader of these Rough-Riders, whose story he told in one of his most popular books. Condition: The binding is firm. There is some wear to the extremities including some bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages are generally bright and clean witha fewspots, which are mostly towards the beginning and end of the book. There are chips to one or two of the pages, but they do not interfere with the text. Overall the condition of the book is very good..

        Raum und Zeit

      Leipzig: Teubner. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of Minkowski's explanation of the fourth dimension, a critical bridge between Einstein's theories of special and general relativity. PMM 401. "In "'Space and Time', read by Minkowski in Cologne only a few months before his death, he introduced the notion that made possible the expansion of the relativity theory of Einstein from its specific (1905) to its general form (1916). Minkowski's space-time hypothesis was in effect a restatement of Einstein's basic principle in a form that greatly enhanced its plausibility and also introduced important new developments. Hitherto natural phenomena had been thought to occur in a space of three dimensions and to flow uniformly through time. Minkowski maintained that the separation of time and space is a false conception; that time itself is a dimension, comparable to length, breadth, and height; and that therefore the true conception of reality was constituted by a space-time continuum possessing these four dimensions. This strongly reinforced Einstein's objections to absolute concepts and supported his view of the relativity of events in nature" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 401). In: Jahresbericht der deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung, volume XVIII, pp.75-88. Leipzig: Teubner, 1909. The whole volume offered. Contemporary three-quarter burgundy morocco. Provenance: Charles L. Bouton, 1912 (signature in pencil on an endpaper). Bookplate and deaccession stamp of Middlebury College- the Egbert Starr Library. Some scuffing to edges of binding and residue from library sticker at base of spine. A few neat annotations (not affecting Minkowski); text fine. NOTE: There were three 1909 (simultaneous or nearly simultaneous) journal printings of Raum und Zeit. The present printing is the one cited by PMM.

        ITALIAN VILLAS AND THEIR GARDENS

Profusely illustrated with 52 illustrations, 27 of which are colourplates or half tones by Maxfield Parrish, the rest being photographs and drawings by E. Denison, Malcolm Fraser and C. A. Vanderhof. Tall 8vo, publisher’s original dark forest green cloth decorated and lettered in gilt on the spine, cover design by Decorative Designers with elaborate pictorial decorations after Maxfield Parrish in an all over design, upper cover stamped in gilt and blocked in light green, blue, purple, gilt and rust, showing a villa garden. 270 pp. A beautifully preserved copy, very fresh and bright withal, the binding very clean and the gilt and cloth colour in excellent condition, corners sharp and interior clean and tight. An as pristine copy of this beautiful book. SCARCE FIRST EDITION, AND A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE 1905 ISSUE OF THIS HIGHLY REGARDED AND SOUGHT AFTER WORK. One of the most well-written books on Italian garden design. The combination of Wharton’s liquid descriptions and Parrish’s romantic paintings, makes for an extremely delightful book. Special attention is given to the gardens found at Florentine, Sienese and Roman villas. The relationship of the buildings to the natural surroundings is explored in detail. “The Italian garden does not exist for its flowers; its flowers exist for it: they are a late and infrequent adjunct to its beauties, a parenthetical grace counting only as one more touch in the general effect of enchantment. This is no doubt partly explained by the difficulty of cultivating any but spring flowers in so hot and dry a climate, and the result has been a wonderful development of the more permanent effects to be obtained from the three other factors in garden-composition - marble, water and perennial verdure - and the achievement, by their skillful blending, of a charm independent of the seasons.” The format and decorative binding and illustration are the same as in the first issue.

        The Jewish Peril. Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

      8vo original wrappers, [2], vi, 95 pp. Backstrip worn, with about a third gone. Front cover nearly detached, some chipping to wrappers, and light soiling to title. Otherwise very good. This work is a first English edition of this infamous anti-Semitic forgery. Put simply, the pamphlet provides rules and strategies for controlling political and economic forces. First published in 1905, and believed to be a plot by Jewish leaders to take over the world, or create unrest. In reality, it was probably produced by Tsar Nicholas?s regime to deflect criticism of his government. Unfortunately, this so called ?Jewish Conspiracy? went well beyond the borders of Russia in terms of acceptance. This pamphlet probably helped fuel the rabid anti-Semitism in Germany and other parts of Europe during the 1920s-1940s.

To do so Bilibin paid meticulous care to actual traditional costume, architecture and decor. The work cemented Bilibin's renown, which was also built on stage design. The front cover is soiled and the coloring is dulled. The imagery is bright elsewhere. The wraps also have a slight curl.

        Natività.

      - Un non comune tema religioso per il pittore di origini venete Carlo Bonacina (1905-2001). L’acquaforte di grandi dimensioni qui proposta ospita infatti una natività, con un Cristo bambino gioioso, a mani alzate verso la madre e Giuseppe che quasi lo schermano dai contadini che da dietro si affacciano curiosi. Da notare l’impegno dell’autore nel tracciare con linee decise l’espressione del viso di ognuno. In primo piano poi, a suggerire il destino del neonato, due agnelli sdraiati. Firmato in lastra e a matita nella parte inferiore. In cornice.\r Formato: Acquaforte di dimensioni 33x25 cm. Buono.

        Photograph album from the 1930s/40s

      Heilbronn. Hard cover. Very good . Cloth binding with string (broken). About 11 x 8 5/8 inches. 18 leaves, many with glassine interleaves. Some photographs are loose. The subject of this old family photograph album is not identified, but from internal evidence--inscriptions on the backs of the photographs--he appears to have been Karl Rieger who was born about 1905 in the German city of Heilbronn. The photographs show him as a young man with friends as he and they take walking and youth hostelling trips together. Later in preparation for joining the Luftwaffe he learns to fly gliders. Then he is seen in uniform and at his base, including in the dormitory with his fellow airmen. The base may have been near Munich because there are pictures of that city too. Finally, there are very poignant scenes of a funeral, for apparently he has been killed in action. One poignant last picture shows him as a young boy with his school class.-This album was clearly put together by a loved one. It has photographs of his family, including with his younger brother at home. In addition, there is one particular picture which is of the greatest interest. It shows a large open Mercedes touring car with someone in civilian clothes standing in the passenger seat and three aides in the back seat. The face of the man standing is not clear because he is wearing a hat, but he can be none other than Adolf Hitler himself. The time may have been in the early 1930s when perhaps he was campaigning.The album is very typical of Germany at the time. It is a most interesting keepsake of that period.

A series of stereoscopic views illustrating human anatomy, each view having accompanying text, each of the images and its the text being mounted on one sheet of card. The visual teaching aid of their day. Condition notes: As is to be expected, the boxes show considerable signs of use and age, but the views are complete, intact and undamaged, with the exception only of the very first, which has a small area of loss resulting from a small sticky label which has been clumsily removed. Foxing to the accompanying booklets, very occasional foxing to the text portions of the cards, a very few spots on the images, but the majority of images are clean and bright. The sheets of card are tending to curl, and would need to be held firmly in a viewer. One of the cards, in Box 5, has been cut to separate the text from the photographs, and the latter protected with translucent paper.

Although the backstrip is lacking, the boards are firmly attached. Most leaves have some light dust-soiling at margins and the boards are bowed because the number of mounted samples keeps the individual leaves and the entire volume from closing tightly. A trade catalogue of Thiogene Colors, a subset of the Sulpher Color group, which allowed the direct dyeing of dyestuffs in a greater variety of colors, excepting red, than was formerly possible. The work is divided into two parts; one part deals with the application of Thiogene Colors, and the other describes in detail the various modes of application and the properties of individual colors in the series.
