The venture was a complete success, as noted by the newspaper reviews of the London edition: "Not the least part of that good fortune that follows Mr. Barrie's steps is his choice of an illustrator. Mr. Rackham seems to have dropped out of some cloud in Mr. Barrie's fairyland, sent by a special providence to make pictures in tune to his whimsical genius" (quote from the Pall Mall Gazette, as related in "Arthur Rackham, His Life and Work", by Derek Hudson, pg. 66). ***DESCRIPTION: this limited edition volume is bound in full vellum with gilt lettering and a gilt depiction of Peter Pan riding a goat (which he did every night in Kensington Gardens) on the front board, top edge gilt, fore- and bottom edges of text pages uncut, brown pictorial endpapers with map of Kensington Gardens on the front free endpaper, limitation page follows the front free endpaper, decorative title page, frontispiece plus 49 other coloured plates (all at the rear) each with its lettered tissue-guard and mounted on heavy brown paper, decorative initial capitals; 11.5" tall; (i)-x, 1-120, all text in French, the 49 plates follow the text. ***CONDITION: Overall near fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, the vellum binding is clean and supple, there is the minimal bowing typical of vellum boards; the original ribbon ties are lacking, there are faint ghosts of several pieces of old cello tape on the pastedown endpapers, and the bottom rear corner is somewhat rubbed. ***International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover our costs, please contact us for details.

Lit.: Staverman, Robinson Crusoë in Nederland (Groningen 1907); Kruseman, Aanteekeningen betreffende de boekhandel van Noord-Nederand in de 17e en 18e eeuw (Amsterdam 1893) Mateboer 974-01, 974-02, 975-03; Muller 162 (alleen 2e deel); Scheepers II, 496; Staverman A1; De Vries 228; Forum III, 1526 (2e deel) en 1527 (3e deel) Zeer zeldzame complete set van de eerste Nederlandse vertaling van 'Robinson Crusoë', ongetwijfeld een van de bekendste boeken uit de wereldliteratuur. Al direct na verschijning in 1719 was het een overweldigend succes. Ontelbare keren is het boek sindsdien herdrukt (in Engeland alleen al ongeveer 200 keer), vertaald, nagevolgd en verfilmd. De hoofdpersoon heeft zijn naam gegeven aan een literair genre, de robinsonade, waarmee een boek wordt aangeduid waarin het leven op een afgelegen plek centraal staat. Het enthousiasme waarmee 'Robinson Crusoë' werd ontvangen is waarschijnlijk vooral te danken aan de gedetailleerde beschrijvingen in een eenvoudige, onopgesmukte taal. Die maakten het verhaal voor het lezerspubliek van die tijd heel geloofwaardig: men beschouwde het algemeen als een waar gebeurde geschiedenis. Nog in hetzelfde jaar volgden de 'Farther adventures'. Dat mist het realistische karakter van het eerste deel, maar werd toch met onverminderd enthousiasme ontvangen. Het derde deel dat Defoe in 1720 publiceerde en dat hier in tweede druk wordt aangeboden , is van heel andere aard; het bevat wijsgerige en godsdienstige beschouwingen waarin weliswaar af en toe wordt gerefereerd aan de eerste twee delen, maar die in feite helemaal op zichzelf staan. Het is dan ook nooit populair geworden en maar zelden herdrukt. Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) heeft zeer veel geschreven, als literator, politiek pamflettist en journalist, maar als schrijver van 'Robinson Crusoë' wordt hij beschouwd als de vader van de roman in Engeland. De firma Janssoons van Waesberge was een van de belangrijkste uitgevers en drukkers van haar tijd. Zij was actief in Amsterdam van 1674 tot 1750. Kruseman: Haar drukkerij werd wat voortreffelijkheid aangaat gelijk gesteld met die van de Elsevier's en de Blaeu's. L0755

        Fabric Swatch Books 1907, 1912, 1913 & 1915

      4to. 4 manuscript volumes. Each volume cloth backed over marbled paper covered boards, all volumes inscribed by hand throughout, with varying degrees of deterioration, all four books have been heavily used, neat excisions of some gatherings. Three notebooks seemingly purchased from booksellers in Roubaix, Northern France, which have been filled with contemporary fabric swatches pasted onto each leaf, and extensively annotated with specifications, prices and other details. Perhaps used by a tailor, but most probably a cloth merchant showing off his seasonal wares. The books have been penned in a consistent hand, and occasionally edited (with varying levels of animosity) by other contemporary users. Each volume has suffered externally to an extent from being carried about and used at the time, but all retain the vast majority of the original fabric samples on the present pages, and the commercial bookplates indicating where each notebook was purchased. The number of swatches per book varies, but is over 600 for both the 1913 and 1915 volumes, and more than 250 for the 1907 and 1912 texts, for a total of around 1700 individual examples.

        THE SHORTER POEMS OF ROBERT BRIDGES

      Geo. Bell & Sons, London 1907 - 175 x 111 mm. (6 7/8 x 4 3/8"). 2 p.l., 116 pp., [1] leaf (ads). VERY PRETTY CONTEMPORARY DARK GREEN MOROCCO, INLAID AND GILT, covers with fillet frame, inlaid red morocco tulip cornerpieces, large central oval of gracefully entwined gilt vines and leaves terminating in red morocco tulips and accented with gilt circlets (the covers with a total of 52 inlaid blooms), raised bands, spine compartments adorned with gilt leaves and circlets, gilt titling and turn-ins (rear turn-in with binder's stamp of "B L M"[?]), top edge gilt. Front free endpaper with ink ownership inscription of Desmond MacCarthy, dated December 1, 1947 (see below). Spine sunned to an olive brown (as almost inevitably with green morocco), boards slightly splayed, isolated spots of foxing to opening leaves, two leaves with tiny marginal holes, other trivial imperfections, but a very pretty copy in excellent condition, fresh and clean internally, and the attractive binding bright and with only minimal wear. In an extremely pleasing and ably executed amateur binding, this is an edition of an extremely popular poetry collection with ties to the Bloomsbury Group both through its author and its former owner. Poet Robert Bridges (1844-1930) had written verse since childhood, and continued to do so while studying and practicing medicine. He was friends with a number of writers, musicians, and other artists, including architect Alfred Waterhouse, whose daughter he married. Through his younger wife, Bridges became acquainted with a new generation of literary artists--among them Roger Fry, Virginia Woolf, W. B. Yeats, Ezra Pound, Robert Graves, and E. M. Forster--to whom he gave his support and encourgement. This collection of his shorter works was first published in 1890 and often reprinted (including in augmented form in 1896 and after). This popular acceptance, followed by the impressive sales of his "Poetical Works" (1912), was a major factor in his appointment as Poet Laureate in 1913. The very pleasing binding here is well designed and executed with considerable skill, though we do not know the identity of the binder. Marianne Tidcombe suggests that it may have been done by a pupil of Sangorski & Sutcliffe--perhaps male, based on the tools and design. Our former owner, literary reviewer and drama critic Desmond MacCarthy (1877-1952), had friends in common with Bridges, including Fry, Woolf, and Forster, so it is quite possible that the two were acquainted, despite the difference in their ages. MacCarthy's wife Molly is credited with coining the nickname "Bloomsbury Group."

        Base Ball In Cincinnati (1/500 copies only of the first edition)

      Privately Printed, Cincinnati 1907 - Black cloth lettered and decorated in red with design of original 1869 Red Stockings player front panel. 277 pp. Illustrated with numerous photographic plates of rare images of teams, ball parks, executives and players. A tight, bright example, trace of rubbing to the front red stamping. Elegant vintage small bookplate front free endpaper and bookseller ticket corner of front pastedown. Many of the photographs appearing here, including both 1868-1869 images and also images of original players in later years taken especially for this work), are still found nowhere else. After outlining early, pre-professional baseball in and around Cincinnati, this work explores the building and dominance of the first openly professional team, the Red Stocking Base Ball Club, a team so powerful that it went undefeated from late 1868, through the entire 1869 season, and half of the following season. Led by one of the Father's of Baseball, manager and center fielder Harry Wright and his brother, star shortstop George Wright, this legendary group rolled over all opposition until losing an extra inning game to the Brooklyn Atlantics in June, 1870. Final section covers Cincinnati ball from 1876 to 1908. A cornerstone of any serious baseball library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Portrait photograph of author Ian Maclaren, three-quarters length seated, in jacket with top hat in hand

      Philadelphia: C. Houstin Goudiss, 1907. Gelatin silver print, triple mounted, with C. Houston Goudis blindstamp and Goldensky blindstamp on mount, INSCRIBED by Maclaren beneath image ("Yours Faithfully, Ian MacLaren"). Image: 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. Fine, with some toning and edgewear to mount. Gelatin silver print, triple mounted, with C. Houston Goudis blindstamp and Goldensky blindstamp on mount, INSCRIBED by Maclaren beneath image ("Yours Faithfully, Ian MacLaren"). Image: 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. Maclaren was the pseudonym of Presbyterian pastor and Scotsman John Watson (1850-1907). He earned popular (but decidedly not critical) success in 1894 with BESIDE THE BONNIE BRIER BUSH - "The combination of sentimentality, humour, and religion in a rural Scottish setting proved a successful formula both in Britain and North America and Watson achieved instant fame" (ODNB). Maclaren also enjoyed great popularity in the United States as a lecturer-this photograph, by the prominent Philadelphia portrait photographer Elias Goldensky, captures Maclaren during his third and final American lecture tour. Often in ill-health, he would suffer a fatal case of tonsilitis during the tour and die unexpectedly in Iowa.

        The Famous Hypothetical Question in the Trial of Harry K Thaw.

      1907 - Thaw, Harry K. Insanity Defense Prevails in the Thaw's Trial for the Murder of Stanford White [Trial]. Thaw, Harry Kendall [1871-1947], Defendant. Jerome, William Travers [1859-1934], District Attorney. Francis P. Garvan [1875-1937], Assistant District Attorney. The Famous Hypothetical Question in the Trial of Harry K. Thaw for the Murder of Stanford White. [New York]: Boehm & Rathbone, [1907]. [vii], 39 pp. Portrait frontispiece (of Evelyn Nesbit Thaw) with tissue overlay. Illustrated throughout with black and white and color images and facsimiles. Quarto (11" x 8"). Reversed calf with yapp edges, gilt title panel to front board, marbled endpapers, text block re-cased. Light rubbing to boards, light fading in places, heavier wear to extremities with some wear to spine ends. Light toning to text, faint offsetting from color images in a few places. A handsome copy. $2,500. * "Edition-De-Luxe" limited to 250 copies, this No. 21. With marginal illustrations and facsimiles on every page. Presented as a lavishly-illustrated "Statement of the Facts," this work, written by the District Attorney, William Travers Jerome, and an Assistant District Attorney, Francis P. Garvan, uses court transcripts to form a narrative about Harry K. Thaw's murder of the great architect Stanford White and the subsequent trial. Henry K. Thaw, millionaire with a history of mental instability, married Evelyn Nesbit, a young New York showgirl who had previously been involved with White. Plagued by jealousy, Thaw repeatedly beat and raped Nesbit in an attempt to erase any memory of the prior relationship. Then, in 1906, at a Madison Square Garden premiere, Thaw shot Stanford White three times at close range, without provocation. At the trial, Thaw's lawyers offered an insanity defense. After the first jury was unable to reach a verdict, the second jury acquitted Thaw on the grounds of temporary insanity, making this case one of the most perplexing and controversial of the 20th century. As a sensational trial involving a millionaire, a famous architect and a glamorous former showgirl, this case inspired countless contemporary newspaper articles, pamphlets and scandal sheets. It was also the subject of several subsequent studies and fictional works, such as the 1955 movie The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing and E.L. Doctorow's novel Ragtime (1975). OCLC locat.

        MOSBY'S MEN

      New York: Neale Publishing Company, 1907. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. The Neale Publishing Company, New York. 1907. First edition. 180 pages. Frontis portrait of Mosby, 13 portrait plates. Light brown cloth with cover and spine titles in gilt. Top edge gilt. Deckled edges. A beautiful copy with ruled border and bright gilt titles, interior bright with a bit of browning to the deckled edges. A near fine copy. Scarce. The author was in Company A of Mosby's Rangers and provides a first hand account in a lively and well written style. With a photo from a magazine laid in of Colonel Mosby with his grand-daughter probably taken around 1912. Mosby was a legendary battalion commander from Virginia who was part guerilla, part ninja, renowned for his ability to effect daring, inconceivably dangerous strikes into Union-held camps with lightning speed, and then disappear. Mosby was acting under the direct authority of General Robert E. Lee who in 1863 had granted Mosby permission to set up the company (under the Partisan Ranger Act of 1862). By 1864, Mosby's Rangers (also Mosby's Men, or Mosby's Command) had expanded to around 400 men, consisting of six cavalry companies and one artillery company. But this battalion's personnel was regarded by more traditional military men more as "glorified thieves" rather than soldiers. Nonetheless, their ability to annoy and distract, and to force the expense to the Union of committing vast resources to prepare and outwit Mosby's Men, made them a force to be reckoned with. One of their most celebrated raids was the derailing of a train and taking a $170,000 payroll from the paymasters of Sheridan's army. Each of the 80 raiders received $2100 share, though Mosby himself took nothing....(Munson).

        The South Polar Times.

      London & Cambridge: Smith, Elder, & Co., [volume IV:] Scott Polar Research Institute,, 1907–14 & 2010. 4 volumes, quarto. Original navy blue cloth, titles gilt to spines and upper boards, inset coloured pictorial decoration to upper boards within gilt rope-twist borders, all edges gilt. Profusely illustrated with chromolithographic and black and white plates - some mounted, a number from Ponting photographs - and text illustrations, including caricatures and silhouettes of expedition members. Volume I slightly rumpled at head of spine, fore-edge of half-title and frontispiece stained and a little ragged; volume II spine slightly rolled; volume III spine slightly rolled and with a few nicks to extremities; minor marks and abrasions to bindings of volume I-III, and scattered foxing across the three volumes; volume IV in excellent condition. First collected edition. Volumes I and II limited to 250 copies (these both numbered 192), volume III limited to 350 copies (this numbered 261); volume IV number 192 of 500 copies. "A visually exact reproduction of The South Polar Times originally issued during the Antarctic expeditions of Robert F. Scott, the first two volumes were published in 1907 with a preface by Scott. The original had been edited and printed by Ernest Shackleton who produced five issues between April and August 1902, each in a single typewritten copy. After Scott sent Shackleton home in March 1903 the next volume was edited by Louis Bernacchi, from April to August. Edward Wilson was the principal illustrator, though contributions and illustrations came from both officers and crew." (Books on Ice). The third volume was edited by Apsley Cherry-Garrard during Scott's last expedition of 1911, and published in 1914. Together they form what is perhaps the most personal of the printed documents to have come out of the Heroic Era of Antarctic exploration, revealing the often contradictory aspects of the participant's personalities. As Scott explained in his preface, publication was proposed in "March 1902 [when] we were busily preparing for our first Antarctic winter as we watched the sun sinking towards its long rest. We knew that daylight would shortly disappear for four whole months, and our thoughts turned naturally to the long dark period before us and the means by which we could lighten its monotony." The expedition scientists were to "write luminously on their special subjects, and to record scientific events of general interest", while "lighter matter" indulging "any shy vein of sentiment or humour that might exist among us" was encouraged under "the cloak of anonymity." The exercise certainly seems to have achieved its aim, as Scott recounts; "I can see again a row of heads bent over a fresh monthly number to scan the latest efforts of our artists, and I can hear the hearty laughter at the sallies of our humorists and the general chaff when some sly allusion found its way home." The fourth volume was never previously published, and is a facsimile of the text held by the Scott Polar Institute, accompanied by an extensive introduction by Ann Savours which details the production of the South Polar Times. Clean, bright sets that can be handled with some degree of impunity, such as this, are distinctly uncommon. The weight of the text-blocks, which would tax even traditionally bound volumes, has in most cases certainly proved too much for the gutta percha bindings which are "now mostly perished" (Taurus). In this set off-setting from the chromolithographs is minimal, with only one trace of the adhesion often found (volume II); and the "handsome bindings", with "finely coloured printed scenes" and striking gilt-work, remain large free of scratching and scuffing, with inner joints not cracked. In all an excellent set of this important record of the human side of polar endeavour.

Al direct na verschijning in 1719 was het een overweldigend succes. Ontelbare keren is het boek sindsdien herdrukt (in Engeland alleen al ongeveer 200 keer), vertaald, nagevolgd en verfilmd. De hoofdpersoon heeft zijn naam gegeven aan een literair genre, de robinsonade, waarmee een boek wordt aangeduid waarin het leven op een afgelegen plek centraal staat. Het enthousiasme waarmee 'Robinson Crusoë' werd ontvangen is waarschijnlijk vooral te danken aan de gedetailleerde beschrijvingen in een eenvoudige, onopgesmukte taal. Die maakten het verhaal voor het lezerspubliek van die tijd heel geloofwaardig: men beschouwde het algemeen als een waar gebeurde geschiedenis. Nog in hetzelfde jaar volgden de 'Farther adventures'. Dat mist het realistische karakter van het eerste deel, maar werd toch met onverminderd enthousiasme ontvangen. Het derde deel dat Defoe in 1720 publiceerde en dat hier in tweede druk wordt aangeboden , is van heel andere aard; het bevat wijsgerige en godsdienstige beschouwingen waarin weliswaar af en toe wordt gerefereerd aan de eerste twee delen, maar die in feite helemaal op zichzelf staan. Het is dan ook nooit populair geworden en maar zelden herdrukt. Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) heeft zeer veel geschreven, als literator, politiek pamflettist en journalist, maar als schrijver van 'Robinson Crusoë' wordt hij beschouwd als de vader van de roman in Engeland. De firma Janssoons van Waesberge was een van de belangrijkste uitgevers en drukkers van haar tijd. Zij was actief in Amsterdam van 1674 tot 1750. Kruseman: Haar drukkerij werd wat voortreffelijkheid aangaat gelijk gesteld met die van de Elsevier's en de Blaeu's. L0755"

        The Master Beast

      London Rebman Limited 1907 - The book is reasonably firmly bound in the publisher's red cloth, decorated in black, the cloth is stained and the corners and spine ends are rubbed and bumped. The text block is foxed and age browned, with tears and some loss to the edges of some pages. An excellent dystopian, anti-socialist novel set mainly in the year 2020, though with a long build up in the latter years of the late nineteenth century and the early years of the twentieth, indicating that the author had probably attended a number of socialist gatherings, been initially seduced and then reflected upon the dangers and felt compelled to write this novel. The brilliantly named Horace Newte prophesises a sudden German invasion, which will lead to the rise of socialism, but our hero is saved by the scientist father of the woman he loves shoving an experimental serum down his throat, which preserves him unscathed until the year 2020, where he of course immediately falls in love with the great granddaughter of the woman that he had loved in his own time. The dreary horrors of socialism are detailed: a Nietzschean superman figure, the leader of the party, of course inhabits Buckingham palace, women have of course become either mad or are sexually aggressive wild beasts, prepared to rip the throats out of their rivals with their teeth, and mass orgies(surprisingly graphically depicted) are as regular a feature of life as the end of the world predictions. Quite a brilliant novel, if a little crude, which is shockingly left off every list of twentieth century dystopian literature, a gross error in my opinion. It is a rarity as a first edition.

        Photo Album]: New England and Shriner's Party

      Massachusetts, Maine, Texas, Mexico 1907 - Oblong small quarto measuring 7" x 11". Brown cloth over paper boards with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 83 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.5" x 5" and 4.5" x 6.5" with captions. Very good photo album with tape repairs on the front board, tears, and slight bowing with near fine photographs.A photo album beginning around 1893 compiled by Mrs. Albert S. Long (Katherine Long) of Lawrence, Massachusetts with her card laid in. Her husband was a contractor and carpenter in the area and a member of the Shriners. The album begins with 18 cyanotypes of the family home, exterior and interior, dinner parties, their horse and carriage, and a group lounging on the porch. These also include cyanotypes of both Christmas 1893 and Christmas 1894 with images of their Christmas trees and the gifts placed underneath and on the trees. The Long's vacationed on Peake Island, Maine in 1895 with photos of Casco Bay, their vacation cottage, and sailing. One photo from this trip is trick image captioned "I want to shake hands with myself" and shows a photo of a man photo edited to look like he was facing himself. The album shows photos of Albert's work and the Long's favorite places and friends around New England. One of these photos is of a large house with a fence which is captioned, "the first school house Albert built." Other photos include Merrimack Falls and Lake, a friend's dinner party, and Tarbox School. The Long's were very interested in the warships that would dock in the area and photographed them. One of these photo shows the U.S.S. Raleigh in Casco Bay which was used during the Spanish American War and later World War I. Other warships include the Montgomery, the New York, and the Minneapolis. A photo captioned, "on board the warship" shows personnel and passengers milling about on the upper deck. Later photos from 1906 show the Longs with their new automobile posing around a dirt road.The final section of 40 photographs is from a Shriner's party the Long's were a part of during 1907. The group traveled around the United States and to Mexico and the West on a train visiting a variety of places and landmarks. They visited the Whirlpool rapids in Canada near Niagara Falls and the Niagara Falls bridge. The party is seen here in fancy dress and in elaborate hats posed in the rocks by the rapids. There is also an image taken of the Shriners on board the train. As they traveled West they photographed the homes of Mexicans in El Paso and horseback riding. The trip also took them to Arizona where they visited the Grand Canyon and Hopi Indian pueblos. One of these photos shows a small "Indian" boy with the canyon in the background. They continued on to California and took photos of the Pacific Ocean, palm trees, and a clam bake they attended. Katherine photographed Texas and Mexico and included a Bull Ring, a Mexican market, and a mission with men in large Mexican hats in the foreground. A remarkably attractive and interesting collection of both domestic and travel snapshot photography, many of the images are a bit larger than usual size, most likely taken by a well-to-do New England young woman.

        Loose Photo Album Pages]: Alabama

      Alabama 1907 - Six loose album pages containing 60 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring around 3" x 3", some with captions. Near fine photos with some fading.A collection of photos beginning in 1902 revolving around a family from Alabama. The earliest photos are taken in Selma and show images of the Schuh-Miller Lumber Company including a log train, their "first office," and the lumber yard itself. The most obvious inference is that these images were taken by one of the owners of the lumberyard. The next section of photos from 1903 show the family around their home. One of these photos shows the family's children posed with their African-American maids. An uncaptioned page shows some horse drawn wagons with animals including elephants which appear to be part of a circus. Other photos show African-Americans working on a railroad and another page of African-Americans on a Selma street. A page from 1907 shows the state funeral of Senator John Tyler Morgan. These photos are captioned "hearse containing Morgan's body," "Alabama National Guard leading Senator Morgan's funeral carriage," and "temporary tent over Morgan's grave."An interesting collection of photographs kept by an Alabama family at the turn of the century.

        Is Mars Habitable? A Critical Examination of Professor Percival Lowell's Book “Mars and Its Canal,” with an Alternative Explanation.

      London:: Macmillan, 1907.. 8vo. xii, 110, [2 ads.] pp. Frontis., 1 plate. Original green gilt-stamped cloth. Ownership signature of A.S. Heard. Fine. First edition. Contemporary riposte to the theories of Lowell regarding the possibility of life on Mars and the interpretation of canals on its surface. Written in refute to Percival Lowell's Mars and Its Canals, 1906, this treatise presents the author's belief that life, as we know it, cannot exist elsewhere in the universe. Wallace (1823-1913) was a brilliant creative thinker and naturalist. He rarely avoided controversy and was at his best while collecting evidence against an argument. By doing so, he greatly enriched science. Charles H. Smith noted about this volume, “For many years one of Wallace's least remembered books, Is Mars Habitable? is increasingly being recognized as one of the first examples of the proper application of the scientific method to the study of extraterrestrial atmospheres and geography--that is, as one of the pioneer works in the field of exobiology.”

        [ORIGINAL PROSPECTUS FOR] THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN BEING A SERIES OF VOLUMES PICTURING AND DESCRIBING THE INDIANS OF THE UNITED STATES AND ALASKA

      [Cambridge, Ma, 1907. [20]pp., plus two photographic plates. Large quarto. Original printed wrappers, sewn as issued. Wrappers somewhat dust soiled, with short split at head of spine and light edge wear. Internally clean, images fine. Nearly very good. A scarce large promotional pamphlet advertising Edward Curtis' photographic masterpiece, THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN. Curtis was fascinated with the story of the American Indian from an early age, honing his knowledge of them and skill as a photographer on numerous scientific expeditions in the 1890s. With the enthusiastic backing of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword), Curtis evolved his plan for a comprehensive work which would illustrate his romantic vision of American Indian life before the disastrous impact of European contact. He obtained the patronage of J. Pierpont Morgan, whose support (and later that of his son), enabled the project to go forward. What had originally been projected to take five or six years stretched to twenty-three, consumed $1,200,000 (a third in subsidy from the Morgans), and crawled to a conclusion only in 1930, leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, he succeeded in accomplishing his grand design, and his work remains his monument. This prospectus is printed entirely on Van Gelder paper, the stock used for the majority of the run of the printed set. It contains a description of the project and an outline of the publishing plan, the one page foreword and endorsement by Theodore Roosevelt, the general introduction to the work written by Curtis, and several sample text leaves from the first volume of the series. It also includes examples of two photogravures from that volume, "The Oath - Apsaroke" and "Navajo Medicine-Man." Rare in and of itself, this prospectus is an attractive sample for one of the most expensive and difficult to obtain works in the field of Western Americana. REESE, BEST OF THE WEST 234 (ref).
