        Tuskegee & Its People

      1905. First Edition . WASHINGTON, Booker T. Tuskegee & Its People: Their Ideals and Achievements. New York: D. Appleton, 1905. Octavo, original gilt-stamped burgundy cloth. $1900.First edition of an important work on Booker T. Washington's Tuskegee Institute, expressing his goal ""to write a history of the individual yearnings for the light of knowledge""—a scarce copy containing the publisher's tipped-in leaf printed, ""Compliments of Booker T. Washington""—with essays by Washington, leaders of the school and graduates, along with frontispiece portrait of Washington and 23 full-page illustrations.Washington, the Wizard of Tuskegee, was the ""most dominant figure in African American society"" when Tuskegee & Its People appeared (Verney, Art of the Possible, 111). Famed for his 1895 Atlanta ""Compromise"" Speech and an approach to African American education that highlighted vocational training over academics, Washington is often contrasted to W.E.B. Du Bois. Yet many see a rupture between Washington's public stance and his school's actual history. ""From its early days, Tuskegee offered a broad curriculum, not unlike that found in high schools for white students at the timeÂ… The academic curriculum of Tuskegee was not promoted publicly—as was the vocational program—and flew under the radar so to speak"" (Morowski in American Educational History Journal). When Tuskegee & Its People appeared, most secondary schools in the South were whites only and the 1896 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Plessy v Ferguson had fiercely institutionalized segregation. To many, a fresh analysis of this major work might ""better decipher Washington's place in African American historyÂ… the validity of his so-called grassroots leadership style, the realities of students' experiences at Tuskegee, and the overall complexity and multidimensional nature of his leadership"" (Dagbovie, African American History Reconsidered, 152). Washington secretly supported a number of civil rights causes and ""never said that American minorities would forever forgo the right to vote, to gain a full education, or to enjoy the fruits of an integrated society. But he strategically chose not to force the issue in the face of the overwhelming white hostility that was the reality of American race relations in the late 19th and early 20th centuries"" (ANB). One of an undetermined number with a tipped-in leaf printed; ""Compliments of Booker T. Washington, Principal Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, Tuskegee Institute, Alabama."" Edited by Washington with his extensive introduction, containing five essays from leaders in the school's staff, including his wife, Margaret Murray Washington, and 17 essays from Tuskegee graduates, along with 24 full-page illustrations, including a frontispiece portrait of Washington. Without rarely found dust jacket. Penciled inscription in a secretarial hand or from the publisher, to ""R. Henry W. Dwight from the Author. 1905."" The recipient is likely R. Henry W. Dwight, a descendant of the New England Dwight family, whose members served in the U.S. Congress and whose legacy reaches back to the American Revolution. The R. Henry W. Dwight collection of his family's history is housed in the Norman Rockwell Museum Archives. Tiny bit of marginalia to one leaf of the introduction.Interior fine, only lightest edge-wear to bright gilt-stamped cloth. A very handsome about-fine copy.

      1905. First Edition . JOPLIN, Scott. Eugenia. Chicago: Will Rossiter, 1905. Quarto, original wrappers; pp. 8. $1800.First edition of the score for this popular rag.African-American composer Scott Joplin is the most prominent of the ragtime composers of the Missouri school, which flourished around 1900. After suffering a decline of popularity in the 1920s connected with the spread of recorded music-RagtimeÂ’s popularity directly related to the ability of amateur musicians to purchase the sheet music and perform it at home-Ragtime was recognized in the second half of the 20th century as a supremely American musical form. “Ragtime now appears widely in concert programmes, film scores, and elsewhere in American life. This revival virtually took the form of a craze in the late 1960s and early 1970s and, before subsiding, had established ragtime in the view of music historians as the first clear fusion, and perhaps the most successful, of AmericaÂ’s salient musical features” (New Grove 15:539). Evidence of tape repair to wrapper spine, very light edgewear. Spine expertly repaired at fold. An extremely good copy. First editions of ScottÂ’s piano solos are extremely scarce.

        Alkohol und Kunst (Alcohol and Art)

      Verlag von Deutschlands Großloge II des I. O. G. T., Flensburg 1905 - Octavo. 8pp. Original artistic blue and white color washed paper wrappers with emblem and lettering in black on cover. Lecture on the relation of alcohol and art by Prof. Peter Behrens based on the research of Moebius, Kraepelin, Smith, and Delbrück. At the time Behrens was director of the School for Applied Art in Düsseldorf, influential member of the modernist movement at the turn of the century, and cofounder of the famous German Werkbund. When Behrens designed the AEG Turbine Factory in 1910 some of his assistants and students were Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Adolf Meyer. In his lecture Behrens takes a firm stand against alcohol consumption going as far as to claim that alcohol is most pronounced among artists and brilliant thinkers and that it is rare that such persons do not see their demise as a result of alcoholism. Behrens commits to wanting to be a contributor to the elevation of the human life and wishes to see that art is desired and relished by all people. He expresses his hope to live to see the fruits of the efforts of the anti-alcohol-movement in the next generation. This lecture was given at the IX. International Congress against Alcoholism on April 28, 1903 in Bremen, Germany. The back cover carries advertisements for a student performance entitled "Frei!" by Eva Trau and "Neujahrsmorgen!" by Dr. Kantorowicz. Wrappers and pages age-toned. Wrappers and interior in overall very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Storm of London.

      Boston; Herbert B. Turner. 1905 - First edition. 8vo. Publisher's decorated grey cloth titled in black to spine and front board and embellished with dramatic scenes of London being lashed by tempest. Minor edgewear and rubbing, very good indeed. A handsome copy. Internally clean and fresh. Top edge a trifle dusty, others untrimmed. Okay, this satirical item is a bit crackers even from the dizzy heights of eccentricity I usually occupy; a bored peer attempts suicide at the height of the worst storm to hit London in years but awakes to find that everybody's clothes have disappeared, in fact all fabric has dissolved, and everyone must walk around naked. Yes, I think I had a dream like that when I was 14. Obviously it's all a little more serious than that, with the disappearance of clothes comes the disintegration of class divisions, one can no longer tell whom one's peers are from looking at them, also socialising is apparently a lot more difficult when everyone is naked. A fact I shall remember when next I attend a major bookfair. Quite odd, but a very nice copy of a very scarce book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"His work with hooded rats provided important evidence that evolution could occur by the action of selection on small variations in traits. Other biologists (including T. H. Huxley and William Bates) had doubted Darwin's belief in the sufficiency of small variations (acted upon by natural selection over long periods of time) to explain evolution. He realized that the traits acted upon could be multifactorial." Wikipedia An interesting group of offprints. First separate editions. In good to very good condition. * . Very Good.

        MORDEKHAI ‘IMANUEL NOAH [AND] MASAOT B’ANGLIAH, TSFARAT, SEFARD, U’V’ARTZOT BARBARIA

      Warsaw: Achiasaf Society 1905 - 1st Edition [and] 1st Hebrew edition. Modern boards, 8vo, [66], 25 pages. 22 cm. In Hebrew. Two books published together. First Title is Mordekhai ‘Imanuel Noah by Rabbi Max Raisin. Title translates to Mordecai Manuel Noah. Second title is Masaot by Mordecai Manuel Noah, the First Hebrew translation of Noah’s famous "Travels in England, France, Spain and the Barbary States, in the years 1813-14 and 15." Publishing the work in Hebrew, in Eastern Europe, was a way to reach the wider Jewish world to tell the amazing story of Noah, probably the most powerful Jew in the Western Hemisphere of the early 19th Century. Both are published by the Achiasaf Society, a Hebrew language publisher founded by noted Zionist thinker Asher Zvi Hirsch Ginzberg, better known as Ahad Ha’Am. It contains a brief biography of American-Jewish statesman and proto-Zionist thinker, Mordecai Manuel Noah, and Noah’s own accounts of his travels in England, France, Spain, and the Barbary Coast. (Today known as the Greater Maghreb. ) Noah, a journalist, playwright, politician, and lawyer, was one of the most prominent Jews of Early America, and served as Consul to Kingdom of Tunis (modern Tunisia) under President James Madison. When then-Secretary of State James Monroe removed Noah from Noah’s post, citing his religion as an "obstacle", it sparked an outcry among American Jews and non-Jews alike, with Noah receiving letters of support from John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. Discouraged from pursuing government positions, Noah continued his career as a newspaperman in New York, founding and editing numerous publications there. Unfortunately, Noah is probably best remembered for his ambitious but failed attempt to establish "Ararat, A Jewish City of Refuge" on Grand Island in Upstate New York. Noah’s ardent belief that Jews would flock to his settlement to escape international persecution proved false, and "Ararat" never came to be. Masaot was written in 1814, before Noah’s removal from his position of Consul, and ten years before the failure of Ararat. His biography is written by Rabbi Max Raisin, prominent early 20th-century historian of Jewish America. SUBJECT(S) Jewish politicians -- United States -- Biography -- Voyages and Travels.

[xx], 300, [1], [1, blank] pp. Color frontispiece and fifty-three color plates after Kate Greenaway, with descriptive tissue guards, and numerous black and white illustrations, including thirty-four half-tone plates. Front and back blank leaves slightly foxed, some very minor and light marginal staining, otherwise near fine.Bound ca. 1905, most probably by Birdsall of Northampton, in three-quarter dark blue morocco over light blue cloth boards ruled in gilt. Spine with two raised bands decoratively paneled in gilt. The largest panel (3 3/4 x 2 inches) with a typical Kate Greenaway girl onlaid in various different colored morocco. Original color pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt. An excellent example.The roots of Birdsall of Northampton "stretch back to the early eighteenth century but it was in 1792 that John Lacy's Northampton bindery was acquired by William Birdsall, continuing in his family until 1961. In Birdsall's heyday, Gerring (Notes on Bookbinding, 1899) reported a staff of 250 engaged in making ladies handbags, fancy boxes, and stationary; as well as all types of bookbinding. The firm seemed always ready to experiment and careful records and samples were kept by Richard Birdsall, great-great-nephew of the founder, until he died in 1909. The firm's collection of over 3,000 finishing tools passed to the University of Toronto" (Maggs, Bookbinding in the British Isles II, #262, and #321). "Birdsall's is notable for the high quality of their leathers and finishings, as well as for the inventive style of their 'inlaid pictorial bindings'" (Chevalier Collection, Christie's November 9, 1990).
