        Theodore Roosevelt Signed Letter To Gutzon Borglum.

      Signed letter from President Theodore Roosevelt to Gutzon Borglum, the sculptor of Mount Rushmore on White House letterhead dated February 17, 1908. It reads, "My dear Borglum, The head of Lincoln grows upon me more and more. I think it one of the finest things I have seen. I especially like it when seen from the right front. Theodore Roosevelt." Long before beginning his work on Mount Rushmore, Borglum carved a massive marble bust of Abraham Lincoln in 1908 that was exhibited in Theodore Roosevelt's White House. Robert Todd Lincoln praised it as perhaps the greatest likeness of his father he had ever seen, and the bust was donated to the Congress later that year. Over a decade later, when designing Mount Rushmore in the 1920s, Borglum placed President Roosevelt next to Lincoln. Double matted and framed with a photograph of Borglum. The entire piece measures 13.5 inches by 21.5 inches.

        Extract From a Despatch From the Government of India to the Secretary of State for India in Council, Dated September 21, 1899, Relating to British Policy in Persia.

      London, Harrison & Sons, 1908. - Folio. 11, (1) pp. Sewn. Contains an extensive discussion of the de jure and de facto status of navigation in the Arabian Gulf: legally, the "western and southern coasts are partially owned and partially claimed by Turkey, or are in the occupation of Arab tribes, who have entered into Treaty relationships of varying character, constituting a sort of veiled Protectorate with Great Britain. The islands in the Gulf are owned either by Persia or by Arab Chiefs (in the case of Bahrein under British protection) [.] The de facto position upon the waters and on the shores of the [.] Gulf refelcts a more positive British predominance than the preceding paragraph might indicate. In the early years of the [19th] century the Slave Trade was rapant in the Gulf [.] This conflict [.] resulted in the establishment of Treaty relations with the great majority of the Arab Chiefs, under which they bound themselves to observe perpetual peace, and to refer all disputes to the British Resident at Bushire [.]". - Slight duststaining to cover, but well preserved.

      - Questa notissima rivista fiorentina ha catalizzato gli interessi culturali e politici del primo novecento ed attorno ad essa sono stati dibattuti i grandi temi etico-politici ed ideologici . I "vociani" ebbero un ruolo importante nel periodo della entrata in guerra (l'interventismo !) Le varie scissioni ( Papini e Soffici fondarono poi Lacerba ) ed i dibattiti assai accesi ( Prezzolini lascio' la direzione per fondare La Voce Politica nel 1915 e poi ritornò nell'arengo. ) alimentarono notevolmente la cultura storica e letteraria, incidendo profondamente sul Novecento ! L'elenco dei vari collaboratori è impressionante ! : B. Croce, Salvemini, Slataper, Soffici,Papini, Cecchi, Bacchelli, C. Rebora, U. Saba, Palazzeschi, , Lombardo Radice, e poi Govoni C., Baldini, Onofri, Caldarelli, Savinio, Vigolo, Sbarbaro ecc. ecc. Per il rigore, la seriet? dei protagonisti, il coinvolgimento nei fatti culturali e storici, La Voce può essere considerata un illustre progenitore del Mondo di Pannunzio!
