Lauriat/on his 64th birthday, January 12, 1906/by/Robert Harrington/(Born Oct. 31, 1841)/as a specimen of his binding/at the age of 64". Robert Carrington ( 1841- ). There is a record of a Robert Carrington, bookbinder in an 1892 publication Public Documents of Massachusetts: Annual Reports of various Public Officers and Institutions for the year 1891 (page 443). Charles E. Lauriat (1842-1920) was a leading bookseller and publisher in Boston. "For 58 years he carried on the culturing and illuminating business of finding and selling the best of the world's literature, and he knew every angle of the trade for which he stood as a mentor and guide. In 1872 Charles Lauriat formed a partnership with Dana Estes, and their establishment was located at 301 Washington Street (except for a short interruption at the time of the Boston fire) until 1906. In 1898 the firm of Estes & Lauriat, which had been pioneers in the field of subscription bookselling as well as general publishing, separated into two corporations. the Dana Estes Co., publishers, and Charles E. Lauriat Co., retailers. Many famous people were frequenters of the store, such as Oliver Wendell Holmes and Justice Holmes, James G. Blaine, Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Phillips Brooks; and innumerable fine libraries in New England and throughout the country owe their beginnings and their development to that store. Very early in the business, the habit of yearly visits to London was started and for nearly fifty years these annual trips were an important phase of the business, and no American buyer was better known to the old book-men of England from whose stocks and auction sales hundreds of cases started for Boston each year. In the development of mail order bookselling, especially in the field of rare books and remainders, Mr. Lauriat was especially successful, and their mailing list of book buyers was one of the most valuable in the country., while hundreds of New England's summer visitors made regular yearly purchases." (The Publishers' Weekly. American Book-Trade Journal. Volume XCVII, January to June, 1920).

        Oliver Wendell Holmes Autograph Letter Signed.

      , 1905. 1905. Autograph letter signed from Oliver Wendell Holmes on Supreme Court letterhead. The letter is to artist Arthur Conrad LeDuc, who sent Holmes a Christmas gift. The letter measures 5 inches by 8 inches. Matted in framed. The entire piece measures 19 inches by 20 inches. Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932, and as Acting Chief Justice of the United States January-February 1930. Noted for his long service, his concise and pithy opinions and his deference to the decisions of elected legislatures, he is one of the most widely cited United States Supreme Court justices in history, particularly for his "clear and present danger" opinion for a unanimous Court in the 1919 case of Schenck v. United States, and is one of the most influential American common law judges, honored during his lifetime in Great Britain as well as the United States. Holmes retired from the Court at the age 90, making him the oldest Justice in the Supreme Court's history. He also served as an Associate Justice and as Chief Justice on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and was Weld Professor of Law at the Harvard Law School, of which he was an alumnus.

        Der rote Kern, die Haube und die Regio hypothalamica bei einigen Säugetieren und beim Menschen (3: pp.51-267 4: 103-225, 116 Abb., 2 Taf.). In : Arbeiten aus dem Hirnantomischen Institut. 10 Bde. (all publ.).

      Arb. hirnanat. Inst. Zürich, 1-10. - Wiesbaden, J.F. Bergmann, 1905-1916, 8, ca. 3500 pp., ca. 1000 Abb., 10 Leinenbände. First description of "Monakow's bundle", the rubrospinal tract by Constantin von Monakow (1853-1930).There are several great scholars to whom Japanese comparative neurologists are much indebted. They are C.v. Monakow (1853-1930) of Zurich, H.H. Donaldson (1857-1938) and G.E. Coghill (1872-1963) of the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia, C.J. Herrick (1868-1960) of Chicago, and C.U. A. Kappers (1877-1946) of Amsterdam. Most of the Japanese neurologists in early times, such as S. Hatai (1876-1963) and G. Fuse (1880-1946), studied under these European and American mentors. After returning to Japan, they established their own laboratories in Japanese universities and educated many young students."The 'Hirnanatomie Institut' now gradually increased its research and was on a good path to become a world-known centre of brain research. The initial oneman show was amplified by young Swiss collaborators: Minkowski was joined by Nägeli, Veraguth, Tramer, Brun, Katzenstein, Frey. Over the years, a series of visitors from Japan came to work at the Brain Institute. It had a considerable impact on the accomplished work, as recently reported by Akert and Yonekawa*: Tsuchida (monograph on the oculomotor system) Masuda (pontine nuclei - a link from the cerebral cortex to the pontine grey and cerebellum) Gennosuke Fuse (1880-1946), assistant of the University in Zurich from 1907 to 1911 and again from 1914 to 1916 his opus magnum was an atlas of the lower brainstem Hisakiyo Uemura working on long-term retrograde degeneration after cerebellar lesion Tsunesuke Fukuda on thalamo-frontal projections in neuropathological cases (the discovery of the dorsomedial relay nucleus to the prefrontal cortex) Itsuki Nagino (auditory pathway) Sakuemon Kodama (1895-1970), a pupil of Fuse, stayed five years in Zurich. Finally, in 1928/29, Ko Hirasawa (1900-1989) studied the basal ganglia. He made a brilliant career in Japan with a series of outstanding pupils. The Japanese were hardworking scientists, adding considerably to the prestige of the Institute." M. Wiesendanger, C. R.

(1916, 10:pp.113-213).Constantin von Monakow (1853-1930), director of the Brain Anatomy Institute in Zurich, was a pioneer in the early history of interdisciplinary brain sciences. The elucidation of connectivity in sensory and motor pathways was richly illustrated in two landmarkmonographs: Pathologie du cerveau (1897) and La localisation de l'encephale et la dégradation fonctionelle par des lésions circonscrites du cortex cérébral (1914). His special merit was to conceptualize his accumulating results. As to his term 'diaschisis':(1) neurological lesion are rarely restricted to a histologically defined neural structure (2) any brain focus is interconnected with remote structures - thus, dependent structures are deafferented from the lesioned territory (= 'diaschisis') - (3) dependent structures, however, gradually regain some autonomy, as reflected in partial behavioral recovery. His term 'chronogenic localization' was used for the brain's fundamental organization in time-dependent network constellations. Monakow attracted many researchers,particularly from Japan. He was an engaged member of the International Brain Commission until its dissolution during World War I.*K. Akert, Y.

        A Visit to Mr. John D. Rockefeller by Neighbors & Friends at Forest Hill.

      Cleveland: Vinson & Korner Co, 1905. Octavo, original boards. Signed by John D. Rockefeller beneath his frontispiece. One of 425 numbered copies, this is number 396. The work commemorates the day John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil, was visited by 300 Cleveland businessmen outside his home. Included are 38 pages of the speeches delivered that day, including ones given by Liberty E. Holden and Andrew Squire, and the speech given by Rockefeller in response. In very good condition, rebacked. Rare and desirable. John D. Rockefeller was an American oil industry business magnate and philanthropist. Widely considered the wealthiest American of all time and the richest person in modern history, Rockefeller was born into a large family in upstate New York and was shaped by his con man father and religious mother. His family moved several times before eventually settling in Cleveland, Ohio. Rockefeller became an assistant bookkeeper at the age of 16, and went into a business partnership with Maurice B. Clark and his brothers at 20. After buying them out, he and his brother William founded Rockefeller & Andrews with Samuel Andrews. Instead of drilling for oil, he concentrated on refining. In 1867, Henry Flagler entered the partnership. The Rockefeller, Andrews & Flagler company grew by incorporating local refineries. Rockefeller formally founded the Standard Oil Company, Inc. in 1870 as an Ohio partnership with his brother, Henry Flagler, Jabez A. Bostwick, Samuel Andrews and a silent partner, Stephen V. Harkness. He ran it until 1897. As kerosene and gasoline grew in importance, Rockefeller's wealth soared and he became the richest person in the country, controlling 90% of all oil in the United States at his peak. Oil was used throughout the country as a light source until the introduction of electricity and as a fuel after the invention of the automobile. Furthermore, Rockefeller gained enormous influence over the railroad industry, which transported his oil around the country. Standard Oil was the first great business trust in the United States. Rockefeller revolutionized the petroleum industry, and along with other key contemporary industrialists such as steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, defined the structure of modern philanthropy.

        Vpered [Forward]. Complete run of 18 issues. [Bound with:] Proletarii [The Proletariat]. Complete run of 26 issues.

      "Zheneva" (Geneva), Rossiyskayah Soch Demokraticheskaya Rabochaya Partiya, 1905. - 44 tabloid issues (440 mm), text printed in triple column, bound together in slightly later marbled boards backed with black cloth. Private rubber-stamped library labels to upper cover and spine foot. First edition: the full run of Lenin's (irregularly) weekly political newspaper "Vpered" (January-May 1905), bound with its successor "Proletarii" (May-November 1905), both published by the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party in Geneva. Printed in the same format as Lenin's previous news outlet, "Iskra", which began publication in 1900 in Leipzig and Munich (later continued in Geneva), from where it was illegally smuggled into Russia. Lenin left the editorial staff in 1904 after the paper fell into the hands of the opposing "Menshevik" party faction. He went on to found "Vpered" as a continuation of the still-extant "Iskra", albeit returning to the original Bolshevik platform. Consequently, all three newspapers are near-identical in format, the latter two, however, with the statement at the upper right-hand corner: "Proletarii Vsekh' Stran' Soedinyaytes!" ("All the Proletarians of the Country Unite!"). At head of title of "Vpered" is the French slogan "En Avant"; at head of title of Proletarii: "Le Proletaire". - Boards rubbed, otherwise in very good condition. Old faint rubberstamp of the "Algemeyner Yidisher Arbeter Bund" ("Archiv Bunda") throughout. The "Bund", a Jewish labour and socialist party, was founded in Vilnius, Lithuania, in 1897; in the following year it played a part in the formation of Lenin's Russian Social Democratic Labour Party. By 1921 the activities of the "Bund" came to an end in Russia because of the Bolsheviks' seizure of power. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A STATEMENT FOR NON-EXCLUSION

      San Francisco, 1905. [8],255pp. including photographic frontis. Original printed wrappers. Minor creasing and chipping to spine and edges, some soiling. Light toning to text, but overall clean internally. Very good. An important contribution to the pro-Chinese struggle in California. Probably the first comprehensive argument against exclusion of Chinese immigrants by a Chinese- American who had himself immigrated to California from his native Canton to become the leading journalist of San Francisco Chinatown, founding editor of the CHUNG SAI YAT PO (CHINESE WESTERN DAILY) newspaper, voice of the city's affluent, literate Chinese merchant elite. More than just a polemic, the book is a virtual history of troubled Chinese life in America from the Gold Rush to the "Era of Demagogism and Persecution." A convert to Christianity, a Presbyterian minister in his youth, soon to become a devotee of Sun Yat Sen's democratic Chinese revolution, Chew probably wrote the bulk of this book, though he may have thought it politic to employ a Caucasian co-author. Healy was an enigmatic figure, a Irish-American who was both a shoemaker and would-be lawyer and the only white man to publicly speak in Sacramento against the exclusion legislation of the 1870s. The photographic frontispiece illustrates the "Chinese Detention Shed, San Francisco." A scarce work, complete with the original printed wrappers, rarely met with as such in commerce.

Contains 70 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 3.5" x 5.5" and 5.75" x 8", some with captions in the negative. Very good photo album with rubbing and edgewear with near fine photographs.A beautiful collection of turn of the century photography primarily of Gorham, New Hampshire taken by C.H. Hobbs.

The album opens with views of Gorham and classic American small town charm including a horse-drawn carriage and a photo of the Alpine Photographic Studio. The photos also show the rolling hills and mountains just beyond the town. One photo shows a winter scene of a road, another shows a small church surrounded by houses and immature pine trees, others show the town from Prospect Ledge just outside the borders giving an entire view of the community. One particularly wonderful photograph shows the Androscoggin River with a photographic effect which makes the water appear painted into the image. Another photo shows the Second Crawford House, the largest resort in the White Mountains at the time, as seen through the Crawford Notch. Following this there is a photo of the Tip Top House, "the oldest surviving building on the summit of Mount Washington" which is believed to be "the oldest extant mountain-top hostelry in the world." Later in the album the photos focus on the various waterfalls of the region as well as lakes and other waterways. The photos also feature Bretton Woods, Poland Springs, and Shelburne, New Hampshire. The end of the album is primarily compiled of portrait photographs including group photos of young girls and cabinet cards featuring fashionably dressed Victorian women.A wonderful collection of exquisite and well-composed photography taken presumably to promote tourism in the White Mountain region of New Hampshire.

      1905 - First edition. With 25 plates. 8vo. Original green cloth, decorated in gilt and red on spine and upper board; pale stain-marking to lower part of upper board, front hinge splitting, some sporadic foxing, otherwise very good. 314, (errata slip) pp. London and New York: John Lane, This travel narrative first appeared as a series of articles in the Morning Post. Written by Hadji Khan (the Post's special correspondent) it provides a highly detailed description of Mecca and the Hajj. Though the book was edited by a British writer (Wilfrid Sparroy), it is significant as an English-language account of the Hajj by a Muslim (no less a Persian Shia); a point picked up on by ármin Vámbéry in his introduction: ?Christian travellers like Burkhard, Burton, Maltzan . have exhausted the subject relating to the holy places of Islam, but a Mohammedan sees more and better than any foreigner? (p.14). The author was a Persian Sufi and section eight of Part I gives a useful account of his religion. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

PREFACE: 'In the following pages I have endeavoured to lay before the reader an account of two journeys under taken in Tibet, in districts situated many hundreds of miles apart and under diametrically opposite conditions. The first expedition penetrated into the interior of uninhabited and barren regions of the Northern Desert at a time when Tibet was rigidly closed to foreigners. The second led through the rich and thickly populated valleys of the Brahmaputra, and was made with the cognisance and permission of the Lhasa Government, though only rendered possible by the notable success of Sir Francis Younghusband's Mission. The natural obstacles inseparable from exploration in Tibet are so varied and numerous, that but little progress would be made were it not for the aid given by those who are interested in travel and who are willing to render every assistance in their power. I therefore take this opportunity of tendering my thanks to all who have contributed to the success of the journeys here described, and more particularly to Colonel St. G. Gore, R.E., Mr. J. Eccles, and the Officers of the Survey of India ; Major M. Ray, D.S.O., Intelligence Branch ; and Sir Clements Markham, K.C.B., and the Council of the Royal Geographical Society. November 1905. C. G.

        Original charcoal and gouache drawing of an old woman wearing a white head scarf, 9 ½ x 13 inches, on brown paper, inscribed "Your sincere friend Mina Loy", undated but circa 1949-1952

      Although best known as one of the most important early modernist poets, Mina Loy was highly regarded as an artist. In drawings, paintings, collages, decorated lampshades, and relief constructions, she earned the admiration of Joseph Cornell, Marcel Duchamp, among many others. She attended art schools in London, Munich, and Paris and exhibited at some of the more famous art shows of the early 20th Century, including the 1905 Salon d'Automne in Paris, the 1914 Free Exhibition of International Futurists in Rome, the 1917 Independents' Exhibition in New York City, in addition to being shown later at the gallery of her son-in-law, Julien Levy, in New York. By the early 1950s, Loy was living in a small apartment in New York City, where her most ambitious art works, the assemblages and constructions based on her experiences and encounters with the down and out in the Bowery, were created.This drawing, which is undated, must have been done between 1949-1952, during the period when Loy was living in Irene Klempner's communal boarding house in the Bowery, a period in which Loy's intense interest in the life around her was engaged: "From Mina's perspective, the bums represented her lifelong fear of "outcasting." To most people they were human wreckage, indistinguishable in their grime and degradation, but in her eyes they were individuals with habits and histories. Within weeks of her move to Stanton Street, she had made friends with the regulars and introduced them to members of the household as "red" or "Whitey." . . . she sketched them from her window and sent them on errands so that she could give them a quarter." Loy began making assemblages using materials found on the streets of the Bowery, at the same time as she was writing poems such as "Hot Cross Bum": "While writing "Hot Cross Bum," Mina was constructing Bowery scenes with materials which, like her poetic images, were taken from the street. Like Picasso's collages, Mina's assemblages were incongruous couplings of commonplace objects, and like Duchamp's ready-mades, they seemed to thumb their nose at middle-class culture. But unlike either of these innovative recyclers, Mina brought to her shabby materials an acute sense of the cost involved for those who searched the garbage cans: rather than passing as outsides, as they avant-garde had done, they actually lived at the bottom of the heap. . . . In these new works, she was reflecting on her own perspective, that of a person of higher status looking from her window at the derelicts below. But to understand her constructions, one had to see through her eyes. When she showed the bums in low relief, she mocked an artistic trend that made it unthinkable to treat subjects of such low status that they went "on relief." And while her objects adopted the outside stance of the Salon des Refusés, her refuse was recombined not to assail artistic convention, as Duchamp had done, but to make it more responsive. As a name for these disturbing objects, she proposed "Refusees" - a punning blend of refuse, Refusés, and refugees, which summed up her long itinerary from West Hampstead to the Bowery." - Carolyn Burke, Becoming Modern: The Life of Mina Loy (N. Y.: Farrar Straus Giroux, 1996), pp. 409-420. The touching inscription on this drawing suggests the possibility that it might have been given to the subject of the drawing, although we have no way of tracing provenance back to its original owner. In light of the fact that the drawing was done on a piece of scrap paper, as its edges indicate, and may well have been given to the subject, a woman Mina Loy met on the Bowery, the drawing is in very good condition. Framed and glazed.

        Typed Letter Signed, 4to, Hyattsville, Maryland, April 27, 1974

      Cain refers to author John O'Hara (1905-70) as well as to Judge John Sirica, remembered as the Watergate judge who ordered President Nixon to turn in his White House tapes over to the Senate committee. Cain writes, "In re THE CHRISTMAS SPEERT[sic], the piece I suspect of being O'Hara's first in New York: I reprinted it on the Christmas Page, December 25, of the New York World, 1929, as I pin down by the following recollection: I was in touch with the big money at the time, so I could have produced a play, and on the basis of this piece sent for O'Hara to try and persuade him to write it....I invited him down to the apartment...in October 1929, on East Nineteenth Street...my wife Elina wasn't there...." He explains why the meeting had to take place only in 1929 and continues. "O'Hara seemed surprised at my admiration for the piece, indifferent to my idea, and utterly indifferent to me. He was not the easiest person to like, being quite cold in his manner, even at age 24...I do not think I was alone in that reaction to him. He wasn't noted for his charm. But on paper I was, and still am, his potato...." One holograph correction in this last paragraph. Signed, "Jim." He continues in a postscript mentioning Judge Sirica. "Now to mooch something off you, since I take it you're partly Italian: This judge we have here, who has his name pronounced SirIca -- Shouldn't that be SIRica?...on the basis of operatic Italian, which I'm fairly loaded with." Cain replies to Prof. Bruccoli, Professor of English, Univ. of South Carolina who sent a copy of a typed letter from O'Hara to Cain, undated. In the letter, O'Hara asks Cain for money. Bruccoli writes to Cain in full at the bottom of the copy of O'Hara's letter. "Dear Mr. Cain - This [O'Hara's letter] may jiggle your flow of recollection." John O'hara is perhaps best remembered for his novels, "Butterfield, 8" (1935) and "Pal Joey," (1940). Fine in literary association.

        Photo Album]: Images of Vergennes, Vermont and Lake Champlain; New Hampshire, Gerrish Island and Camden, Maine

      1905 - Commercially produced blank album measuring 10.5" x 12" with associated loose photos. Bound in half-leather and cloth boards, white silk moire endpapers. The entire collection consists of 153 photographs, with 69 tipped-in on the album boards and 84 loose prints. Most are platinum prints (including two cyanotypes) measuring about 7.5" x 4.5", with some dozens or so ranging in size from 1.5" x 4" to 6" x 8". Included are a few variant outdoor shots of the same or similar subject that have been trimmed into odd panoramic sizes. The album is neatly split in thirds at the spine with some scattered soiling to the exposed boards, thus good only, some laid-in images with scattered nicks and short tears at the edges, overall very good.Beautifully composed photographs taken by an unknown photographer, most likely a woman, from the town of Vergennes, Vermont. Images of the town's streets and houses taken at the height of its industrial boom in the late 19th Century, with many interior studies of women reading, outdoor and landscape views of mostly women in the surrounding countryside and creeks, and boating on Lake Champlain. Many other images of women vacationing and sailing off the Maine coast at Gerrish Island and Camden, and at leisure in a New Hampshire wood. Included is one photograph of four women in a wood, one of whom is reaching her left hand behind a large format camera, which suggests that the photographer might be her. An immensely appealing collection of images by this unknown Vermont artist.

George Frederick Kunz (1856 - 1932) was an American mineralogist and mineral collector. His expertise gained him and job at Tiffany & Co, and soon became vice-president of the company. He headlined the American mining and minerology exhibits at international expositions and "World's Fairs" between 1889 and 1904. He gained much notoriety for identifying a new gem variety of the mineral spodumene which was named "Kunzite" in his honor. *This work predates Kunz's accaimed works "The Book of the Pearl" and "Curious Lore of Precious Stones".The California State Mining Bureau was established by the legislature in 1880 in response to the need for information on the occurrence, mining, and processing of gold in the state. Its focus was on California's mining industry and the Governor appointed the State Mineralogist to head the Buruea. It was the precursor governmental office to the current California Geological Survey. The Bulletins of The California State Mining Bureau were published multiple times a year from 1888-1926, with a total of 97 bulletins issued. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Betts's Patent Portable Globe

      London : George Philip & Son Ltd., circa 1905. Original card tube with printed paper label containing a cloth globe, stitched over a collapsible metal umbrella frame, with eight colour litho printed gores (a few splits and stains). When opened the globe is: 15.3 inches (39cm) in diameter, the length of the tube is 72 cm. The collapsible globe was invented by John Bett around 1860 and was manufactured by Philips following Bett's death in 1863. They were especially popular in schools. This example can be dated by the inclusion of the Northern Territory as part of South Australia within a federated Australian continent (post-1901), and the three British South African colonies have yet to unify as the Union of South Africa (so pre-1910). These fragile globes rarely survive, the unusual presence of the original tube has no doubt been instrumental in its preservation. It is recommended that conservation is conducted to prevent the splits extending further.

Lauriat (1842-1920) was a leading bookseller and publisher in Boston. "For 58 years he carried on the culturing and illuminating business of finding and selling the best of the world's literature, and he knew every angle of the trade for which he stood as a mentor and guide. In 1872 Charles Lauriat formed a partnership with Dana Estes, and their establishment was located at 301 Washington Street (except for a short interruption at the time of the Boston fire) until 1906. In 1898 the firm of Estes & Lauriat, which had been pioneers in the field of subscription bookselling as well as general publishing, separated into two corporations. the Dana Estes Co., publishers, and Charles E. Lauriat Co., retailers. Many famous people were frequenters of the store, such as Oliver Wendell Holmes and Justice Holmes, James G. Blaine, Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Phillips Brooks; and innumerable fine libraries in New England and throughout the country owe their beginnings and their development to that store. Very early in the business, the habit of yearly visits to London was started and for nearly fifty years these annual trips were an important phase of the business, and no American buyer was better known to the old book-men of England from whose stocks and auction sales hundreds of cases started for Boston each year. In the development of mail order bookselling, especially in the field of rare books and remainders, Mr. Lauriat was especially successful, and their mailing list of book buyers was one of the most valuable in the country., while hundreds of New England's summer visitors made regular yearly purchases."(The Publishers' Weekly. American Book-Trade Journal. Volume XCVII, January to June, 1920). [Attributes: First Edition]

        WORKS OF ALFRED LORD TENNYSON, Poet Laureate

      London Macmillan 1905 - With an engraved portrait frontispiece of Tennyson after J. Mayall. 8vo, beautifully bound in full crimson morocco, the spine with raised bands gilt ruled, separating compartments elaborately decorated with fully tooled panels gilt, lettered in gilt in one compartment, the covers with very fine gilt tooling incorporating dense and wide floral borders surrounded by multiple gilt fillet lines, the turnovers gilt rolled, marbled end-leaves, all edges gilt, a very handsome binding indeed. viii, 900 + (2) Index and colophon pp. A very fine copy, beautifully preserved and especially handsome. BEAUTIFULLY BOUND AND A VERY FINE COLLECTION OF THE POET'S WORK. ONE OF THE GREAT POETS OF HIS TIME. Tennyson was made Poet Laureate in succession to Wordsworth in 1850. He was held in the highest regard by Victoria and Albert. All of his great works are included here, including the "Idylls" and the "Charge of the Light Brigade". Tennyson was the first to be raised to a British peerage for his writing. He is still today one of the most popular British poets. In writing Tennyson used a wide range of subject matter, ranging from medieval legends to classical myths and from domestic situations to observations of nature, as source material for his poetry. The 'Idylls' for instance and the related poems were based on the Arthurian legends, and retell the story of King Arthur, his knights, his love for Guinevere and her tragic betrayal of him in blank verse. The dramatic narratives are not an epic either in structure or tone, but derive elegiac sadness in the style of the idylls of Theocritus. 'Idylls of the King' is often read as an allegory of the societal conflicts in Britain during the mid-Victorian era. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A pair of Typed Letters Signed ("Helen Keller") in pencil, one to an ill young admirer and another to the girl's mother

      Wrentham, Mass, 1905. 4 pp. 4to. Old folds. 4 pp. 4to. "I hear that you love books, which is another bond between us..." A pair of letters from Keller, the first to a young and ill admirer, the second to the girl's mother, following receipt of her response. In the first, dated March 8, 1905, Keller writes from the Wrentham, Massachusetts house she shared with her companion and teacher, Anne Sullivan: "Dear Miss Woods [sic], You are not expecting a letter from me, but I hope it will not be altogether unwelcome. I have heard of you in a round-about way through a friend of Mrs. Eells who is also a friend of mine. Her kind words have brought you very near to me, and I want to write and tell you I love you, and that I am happy to know you love me. That is a dear bond between us ... I hope you will soon be strong enough to write to me. I should love to have a letter from you. I wonder if you are counting as eagerly as I am the days before the snows melt away ... I am living in the country, and my heart beats fast with pleasure when I detect a whiff of the grace of spring in the air. I hear that you love books, which is another bond between us. What better companions can one have than cheerful thoughts and good books? How wonderfully they lift one above one's deprivations and turn even limitations into blessings." In the second letter, addressed to "Mrs. Wood," Keller apologizes for having mispelled the family name in the first letter, and explains that, through a mix-up, she has sent a copy of her book inscribed to her daughter to the wrong address.
