        THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF SIR HENRY MORTON STANLEY...EDITED BY HIS WIFE, DOROTHY STANLEY. With Sixteen Photogravures and a Map

      London, 1909. Half title. Thick quarto. Original green morocco, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, raised bands, covers ruled and front cover stamped in gilt, gilt-ruled turn-ins, t.e.g. Moderate wear and minor fading to spine and extremities; minor scuffing to boards. Original printed tissue guards intact. Small ink ownership inscription on front free endpaper. Extremely light foxing on first few leaves, else fine internally. A very good copy. Deluxe issue of the first edition, limited to 250 copies signed by Dorothy Stanley, this copy numbered 22. Containing a finely detailed, folding two-color map of central Africa, with Stanley's routes outlined in three colors and an accompanying outline of England and Wales drawn in the same scale for land size comparison. Henry Morton Stanley, the most accomplished and celebrated 19th-century African explorer, was also one of his era's greatest self-inventors, a feat both chronicled and extended in his posthumously published AUTOBIOGRAPHY. Stanley was born John Rowlands in 1841, the illegitimate son of a housemaid in Wales. As a child, Rowlands suffered years of cruelty at the hands of his family and in the workhouse where he was raised from the age of six. In 1859, Rowlands fled to America and came under the care of a New Orleans cotton merchant named Henry Morton Stanley, who informally adopted Rowlands and gave him his name. At the outbreak of the Civil War, the younger Stanley enlisted in the Confederate Army. In 1862 he fought and was taken prisoner at Shiloh, where, to obtain his release, he enlisted in the Union Army. Soon thereafter, he became a ship's clerk in the Union Navy and would become one of the few people to see battle from both sides of the Civil War (Hochschild, p.25). Following the war, Stanley was hired as a newspaper correspondent for the St. Louis MISSOURI DEMOCRAT. He was assigned to Gen. Hancock's army in the Indian campaigns and distinguished himself with dramatic dispatches to both the ...DEMOCRAT and various publications on the East Coast. The entire first half of the book is devoted to Stanley's adventures in the Civil War and the Plains Indian Wars. In 1868 the NEW YORK HERALD hired Stanley to cover war in Abyssinia and in 1869 sent him to find Dr. Livingstone. For the next twenty years Stanley explored and charted much of the African interior, wrote several best-selling books, and helped establish the Congo Free State of Belgian King Leopold II, setting the stage for one of the darkest chapters in the history of European imperialism. In the final years of his life, Stanley lectured widely on his adventures and defended Leopold's massive project against international charges of mass murder and de facto slavery. During this time he also worked on his AUTOBIOGRAPHY, "as he indicates, out of a desire to make his nature and character comprehensible to the world which knew him in the day of his fame" (DAB). The book, which Stanley did not live to complete, was edited and prepared for publication by his wife, Dorothy. Nearly half the work is devoted to Stanley's early life in Wales and America, the formative years that molded the conquering figure of international renown. "It was the American Stanley," according to Constance Lindsay Skinner in the DAB, "the man who had seen the wheel-ruts of pioneer wagons on the western prairie and young sturdy towns on recent Indian battle-grounds, who looked at the Congo region and saw nothing there to daunt determined men thoroughly equipped with the means and methods of civilization." Contemporary scholars write of Stanley and his AUTOBIOGRAPHY with a less celebratory tone, noting the excesses of his career as a Congo taskmaster and the various contradictory and probably fanciful elements in his memoirs (Hochschild, pp.23-25, 235). Nevertheless, Stanley's life and his final book, here in its finest edition, stand as monuments to his era's boldest notions of personal resolve and self-creation.

        THE GHOST PIRATES ...

      London: Stanley Paul & Co.,. 1909. original green cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in gold, bottom edge untrimmed.. There is some uniform discoloration to the cloth on the front and. rear panels, probably from interaction with the boards to which the. cloth is affixed, some dust soiling to upper edge of text block and. mild foxing to half title and title leaves and fore and bottom edges,. else a nearly fine copy with clean binding and bright gold lettering. on the spine panel. A very nice copy. (#149904). First edition. Copies in this green cloth binding were probably issued after those bound in red cloth. "A ship bearing a mysterious curse slips into a hinterland between parallel worlds, where it becomes vulnerable to assault by bestial creatures from the other universe. Credibility is assured by virtue of the author's long experience at sea, and the suspense is handled with great skill. Though far less striking in its imagery than THE HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND (1908), it is superior in terms of its internal coherency, and is one of the great weird novels." - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-91. "Vivid, filled with the minutiae of a sailing vessel, this is one of the great sea novels. While in a sense it is derivative from THE INHERITORS by Conrad and Hueffer, it is highly original in detail and well done. Although it is overshadowed as visionary horror by the more spectacular THE HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND and THE NIGHT LAND, as a work of art, it is finer." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 816.

        Advertising Kit for a Midwest Clothing Company: Kloethe & Co.

      (Hot Springs, Arkansas, Indianapolis, and Chicago): Kloethe & Co., Kuh, Nathan & Fischer Co.. 1909). Edwardian-era advertising kit with a fascinating group of artifacts preserving the marketing methods of the Sincerity Clothes line of men's suits at the beginning of the 20th Century. It includes advertising price signs of the period, the window display ads, and the Kloethe & Co. advertising scrapbook preserving all of their newspaper advertisements for the 1909 campaign. All housed in a traveling display case, measuring 20.5" x 12" x 8". Black cloth over wooden boards, drop front, slot built into inner lid, nickel-plated clasps and lettered on inner side in silver. Overall very good with moderate wear to the outside of the case and leather handle detached on one side; contents near fine with individual signs with modest wear, ephemera lightly toned and with scattered nicks and tears.Namesake John M. Kloethe (1870-1929) from Boonville, Missouri set up as a tailor in Hot Springs, Arkansas at the end of the 19th Century. He entered into a partnership with a French immigrant tailor, Victor G. Verneux (1870-1937) sometime around 1903, establishing Kloethe & Co. at 607 Central Avenue in downtown Hot Springs. Their store thrived selling primarily the Sincerity Clothes line of men's suits. Joining with the Kahn Company of Indianapolis, they sponsored a semipro African-American baseball team called the Kloethe Reds, and continued in business as partners into the 1920s. Sometime around 1925 John Kloethe left the business to begin selling shoes, and Verneux retained the Central Avenue store as a menswear store until his death.The advertising kit contents include 220 signs, of which 81 are chalkboard style signs (5.5" x 7") with white and gilt painted lettering, red painted borders, rounded corners; 19 die-cut suit signs (3.5" x 5.5"); 43 pointing finger directional signs (3.5" x 9.25"), some with an embossed gilt and blue lettering; 65 die-cut framed signs (3.75" x 5.75") with embossed horse and horse shoe logo in blue and gilt in corners; 12 miscellaneous hand lettered die-cut signs. Additionally, three triptych folding promotional advertisements with humorous Arts and Crafts-style advertising art on the front covers that fold out to 21" x 11.25" and each holding a 7" x 11" window display advertising card repeating the illustration, and a 12mo stapled catalog with black and white illustrations throughout, and color illustrated softcovers, with cover art of a pipe-smoking hockey player wrapping his stick.Also housed in the kit are a Sincerity Clothes Winter catalogue offering an excellent guide to the single-breasted suits, suits for the college man, and overcoats of the period; a 78-page octavo advertising scrapbook with 110 tipped-in folding newspaper ads; two letters from suit manufacturer Kuh, Nathan & Fischer; and an amusing real photo postcard of Kloethe standing by a young child who rides on the back of a young elephant with the name of his store in the background. The kit and related material offers an excellent snapshot view of sales promotion methods of the time. .

        Manuscript Journal - Royal Marine Army Midshipman's Accounts Onboard HMS Inflexible - Voyage to New York

      England, 1909. England, Ireland, Scotland, New York, Italy, 1909-1911. Manuscript midshipman's journal kept by a young Royal Navy marine named John F. Tryon, a particularly talented draftsman with a keen interest in torpedoes, who served on four vessels whilst keeping this naval log. Tryon would reach the rank of Lieutenant in 1913, take command a submarine in 1917, and perish at sea in January 1918 during the First World War. Folio. 196 pages in manuscript, plus 17 hand drawn and coloured sea charts and mechanical drawings tipped in throughout, most of which are initialled J.F.T.. (S. 519. Journal for the use of Junior Officers, issued by the Royal Navy, 1906.) Brown cloth over marbled boards, labelled to spine, original endpapers. Volume measures approximately 22 x 32 cm. Slight wear to boards, otherwise in very good condition, a neatly organized detail rich, and beautifully illustrated seamanship manuscript. This seamanship journal may be all that remains of a little known Royal Navy hero whose life was taken at the age of 27 whilst helping Britain achieve naval supremacy in World War One. A two part work, the first section is a succinct chronological daily naval log, the second section expanding greatly on the procedures and tasks of life at sea, as well as memorable events. Fastidiously, Tryon records barometrical readings and nautical winds, duties performed onboard, pertinent news and notable events, not missing a calendar day. The first entry is made 15 January 1909 onboard HMS Inflexible at Berehaven in Ireland. In February and March he makes a voyage to Aranci Bay in Italy, around Malta, and back to England. At the start of July 1909 he remarks, "War declared imminent... waiting for declaration of war... Indecisive action in early morning with enemy's cruisers." In August 1909 an interesting event unfolds in detail, a visit to England is made by Russian Emperor Nicholas II who lunches with King Edward II at Spithead, a significant location for the Royal Navy. Shortly thereafter, a memorable occasion in American history is attended and documented, together with an exquisite hand drawn and watercoloured map of the voyage to New York for the "Hudson-Fulton Celebration" September 25th to October 9th. The second part of the volume contains an excellent account of the festivities. HMS Inflexible was chosen as temporary flagship of Admiral of the Fleet Sir Edward Hobart Seymour. In New York on September 30th young Tryon lands a small-arms company for a naval parade, in which he was also a participant. The ship departed from New York on October 9th. [The event was an elaborate commemoration of the 300th anniversary of Henry Hudson?'s discovery of the Hudson River, and of the 100th anniversary of Robert Fulton?'s first successful commercial application of the paddle steamer.] February and March 1910 finds HMS Inflexible and her crew on a tour around Ireland, with ports of call at Queenstown, Berehaven, Rathmullan, and also Lamlash in Scotland. On May 6th 1910 the crew receives news of the death of Edward VII. After his entry of 12 May 1910 we find an original signature of Captain Charles Lionel Napier (1861-1934) who later retired with the rank of Admiral. At Invergordon in Scotland, on 14 May 1910 he embarks HMS Ettick. On this ship he travelled as far north as Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides (Western Isles), where on September 30th the crew carried out preliminary night defence. His final entry from this ship was made at Portland, England, on October 30th. The log continues on HMS Hibernia at Arosa Bay in Spain, 20 January 1911, with the final entry made on 2 December 1911. For the duration of these voyages Tryon is busy with duties such as coaling, painting the ship, preparing booms and masts, giving leave to starboard watch, loading stores, carrying mail, disembarking ammunition, refitting gear, overhauling turret machinery, cleaning engines, running torpedoes, calibrating buoys, arming small ships, landing parties for various reasons, so forth. Ongoing exercises include controlled firing, night firing, battle practice, and rifle drills. The second section of the volume further unveils the actions and events of the aforementioned voyages in fantastic detail, while also describing sightings and encounters with vessels of other nations. Following are some excerpts from the manuscript: 23 March 1909. [HMS Inflexible] "Rear Admiral Callaghan came onboard... Carried out Battle Practice. HMS Canopus towed our target and HMS Minerva was counting ship. Result 29 rounds, hits... Preparing ship for coaling from lighters." 28 March 1909. "... HMS Glory on star: beam, bound for Gibralta. 4.0 a/c to N75W. 4.40. Hauled Patent Log... Did not enter harbour as it was too dark. HMS Glory [1899] arrived." 12 June 1909. "1.30 PM. Dressed ship. The Lord of the Admiralty, Imperial Press Delegates and Admirals Fanshaw and Tate inspected the fleet... submarines steamed down the lines and attached the Dreadnought where the Lords of the Admiralty watched the spectacle... 20 Destroyers and Torpedo Boats... at 20 knots..." 26 July 1909. "... Court martial on Patrick A.B. for a charge of theft..." 26 July 1909. "... The Royal Yacht entered the lines about 2.30, when a royal salute of 21 guns was fired... The procession consisted of 3 torpedo boats in line abreast, Trinity Yacht Irene, Victoria and Albert, Alexandra, [...etc etc...] After the review the King [Edward VII] anchored off the Dreadnought and watched..." 2 August 1909. "6 A.M. weighed anchor and proceeded at 15 kts to meet the Tzar [Tsar Nicholas II, last Emperor of Russia]. Ships were spread 5 miles apart... in company Indomnitable and Invincible. The Russian Squadron was sighted about 7.45 when we closed on the flag... French cruisers then parted company... We escorted to Czar [Nicholas II] to Spithead at 15 kts... the Czar lunched with the King [Edward VII]... During the Czar's stay in England the yacht is patrolled by 4 picket boats day and night. Ships were again illuminated." 31 August 1909. "Hoisted out all boom boats... Ammunition lighter secured. Hoisted out ammunition out of X turret shell room. Eng. Lieut. Carter left ship." 23 September 1909. "At 1.5 P.M. Sighted Nantucket Light ship... At 3.15 P. RMS Lusitania... Both ships' bands played popular tunes and the liner's crew cheered loudly as they passed us." 24 September 1909. "... Sighted Eagle Lt. Anchored off Sandy Hook at 4.10 A.M. about 3 cables abeam of HMS Drake... Rear Admiral Hamilton came onboard... we anchored off 130th street between American and Dutch ships... The English Consul came onboard." 29 September 1909. [New York] "Hands employed cleaning ship... monthly pay... Issued soap and tobacco..." 29 September 1909. "Today the British ships landed two companies totalling about 600 men... at 97th Street [off the Hudson River]... officers were mounted... We began to march about 1.0 P.M. and marched along West Central Park along East 59th Street to 5th Avenue...." 4 October 1909. "The Race for the Battenberg Cup took place this forenoon and resulted in an easy win for the Minnesota... Wilbur Wright made an ascent in his aeroplane... returning to his starting point on Governess Island.. about 33 minutes..." 6 October 1909. "The Admiral gave a farewell dinner to the Vice President of the United States [James S. Sherman] and most of the civil authorities of New York City..." 19 October 1911. [HMS Hibernia] "Rear Admiral King-Hall's flag was hoisted... he and his staff arrived on board at 9.45 A.M." 20-26 November 1911. "Midshipmen held their annual examination... on board, the papers were considerably cut down, there being only a paper in each subject excepting Navigation." End Excerpts. Very little seems to be documented on the life and career of Lieutenant John Francis Tryon, R.N. (18 June 1891 - January 1918), who served in the Royal Navy and died in the Great War, other than this, his own seamanship journal, and a two page record of his naval service held at the National Archives in Kew. He started with the Royal Navy at a very young age in 1904. This volumes begins five years later when he is 18 years of age when he was assigned to HMS Inflexible, the first entry being made 15 January 1909. The volume further records his time on HMS Ettrick, HMS Warrior, and HMS Hibernia. Tryon was promoted to rank of Sub-Lieutenant on 15 January 1912, and to the rank of Lieutenant on 15 August, 1913. Tryon is listed in the Admiralty Navy List published in Edinburgh in March 1913, current to 18th February, as an active sublieutenant having seamanship certificates for navigation, gunnery, and torpedo engineering. From this time his naval career would continue on submarines as opposed to cruisers and battleships. He was assigned on 23 Jan 1913 to HMS Bellerophon, a dreadnought battleship in the 1st Battle Squadron. He was appointed to submarine depot ship HMS Arrogant for duty as second in command to Lieutenant in Command A. Gordon Hine, in the submarine C 35 on 6 October 1913. During the submarine fleet reorganisation (June to August 1916) he was with HMS C12, a 38 C-class submarine attached to the 2nd flotilla at Tyne, the depot ship being Astraea-class second-class cruiser HMS Bonaventure. Submarine C 12 survived the First World War. If Tryon had remained with this appointment, he too might have been a survivor. Alas, Tryon was appointed Commander of G 8 on 30 July 1917, and died at sea on or just before 14 January 1918 when the submarine was declared lost somewhere in the North Sea. [HMS G 8 was a British G class submarine of the Royal Navy, built at Barrow in 1916, launched the same year. She carried 5 torpedo tubes and a crew of 32, commanded by Lt. John Francis Tryon. The G8 was discovered and partly raised by wreck hunters after 93 years at the bottom of the North Sea in 2011. Commander Tryon is buried at Portsmouth Naval Memorial 28.] Midshipmen were effectively on board a ship to help lieutenants control the crew. If good enough, they could take command of small boats or prizes. Winning promotion to lieutenant was the aim of most young midshipmen who entered service in their early teens. Some, however, were still in their lowly rank in their 30s, 40s and even older. Lieutenants were the backbone of a ship's command structure, despite only being on the first rung of the commissioned officer classification. As a lieutenant, officers could expect a regular half-pay income, if put in reserve by the Admiralty, but had numerous tasks to fulfill for the security. They would command small boats, gun divisions in battle, oversee a watch, and were most likely to lead dangerous boarding or cutting-out parties. Depending upon the rating of a Royal Navy vessel, there could be up to six lieutenants on board. HMS Inflexible (1907) was an Invincible-class battlecruiser of the British Royal Navy. She was built before World War I and had an active career during the war. Upon commissioning in October 1908, Inflexible was assigned to the Nore Division of the British Home Fleet. She was the temporary flagship of Admiral of the Fleet Sir Edward Hobart Seymour while in New York for the Hudson-Fulton Celebration in September 1909. On 26 May 1911, she was in a collision with the battleship Bellerophon that damaged her bow. She was refitted in October - November 1911, and her fore funnel also raised by 6 feet (1.8 m) to reduce smoke interference with the bridge. HMS Ettrick (1903) was a River-class destroyer named after Ettrick Water in the Scottish Borders area south of Edinburgh, she was the first ship to carry this name in the Royal Navy. In April 1909 she was assigned to the 3rd Destroyer Flotilla on its formation at Harwich. She remained there until May 1912. HMS Warrior (1905) was an armoured cruiser, at the time of the above described journal, was part of the 2nd Battlecruiser Squadron. HMS Hibernia (1905) was a King Edward VII-class pre-dreadnought battleship. Under a fleet reorganisation on 24 March 1909, the Channel Fleet became the 2nd Division, Home Fleet, and Hibernia became a Home Fleet unit in that division. . Very Good.

List of subscribers. Hoodening is an East Kent winter custom dating back many centuries. A new play is written each year in rhyming couplets by one of the troupe, and references to recent events are included, although the setting is based on a ploughing team from the 19th Century. Over the last few years numerous hoodening groups have appeared in Kent. Most of these appear to be derived from Morris teams; some focus on singing, others on theatre. There is no clear etymology for the words ''hooden'' or ''hoodening''. The Oxford English Dictionary entry is quite brief, but other theories include ''hooded, ''hide'' [as in animal skin or as in concealment] and ''hoaden'' [a type of cloth]. There is a chance that it may have come from ''Woden'' [the Norse god], as he had a famous horse and this has evidently influenced the similar custom of the Schimmelreiter. Small ink name to the top of the front free end paper, light surface rubbing to the fore edge of the upper and lower boards, no dust wrapper as published. Member of the P.B.F.A.

Binding of soft white leather decorated in gold, red and black.

The illustrations call the year 1809 into memory, when Joseph Haydn died, but also with an extraordinary depiction of the shelling of Vienna by the army of Napoleon and the entry of victorious Archduke Charles of Teschen, and a portrait of reigning Mayor Lüger with his 1809 colleague Von Wohlleben. Book and box were expertly produced by Wilhelm Melzer, a craftsman who worked for other members of the Wiener Werkstätte also. A rare and exquisite book.

        THE MAGICIAN .

      New York: Duffield & Company, 1909 - Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1-3] 4-310 [311-314: blank] [note: first and last two leaves are blanks], original pictorial slate blue cloth, front panel stamped in orange, green and black, spine panel stamped in orange and green. First U.S. edition. Maugham made revisions in the text of the American edition, in some instances considerably expanding it. Generally regarded as occult fantasy, this novel is actually science fiction. The villain, Oliver Haddo, modeled upon Aleister Crowley, studies the occult, ancient alchemy and modern biological science, and successfully creates life. Remains a very readable science fiction horror novel. "THE MAGICIAN (1908) presents a savage portrait of Aleister Crowley, easily recognized as Haddo, a student of occultism who forces a young woman to marry him by casting a glamour upon her, and who eventually sacrifices her in order to create a homunculus." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 634. Crowley, with whom Maugham once roomed in Paris, elected to be perversely flattered by the grotesque characterization, calling it "an amusing hotchpot of stolen goods."

        Anne of Avonlea.

      Boston: L.C. Page, 1909. First edition. Octavo, original light green cloth. In near fine condition with the spine gilt bright. Color frontispiece with tissue guard in fine condition. At sixteen Anne is grown up. . . almost. Her gray eyes shine like evening stars, but her red hair is still as peppery as her temper. In the years since she arrived at Green Gables as a freckle-faced orphan, she has earned the love of the people of Avonlea and a reputation for getting into scrapes. But when Anne begins her job as the new schoolteacher, the real test of her character begins. Along with teaching the three Rs, she is learning how complicated life can be when she meddles in someone else's romance, finds two new orphans at Green Gables, and wonders about the strange behavior of the very handsome Gilbert Blythe. As Anne enters womanhood, her adventures touch the heart and the funny bone.

        The Heart of the Antarctic.

      London: William Heinemann,, 1909. Being the Story of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907?-1909. With an Introduction by Hugh Robert Mill, D.Sc. An Account of the First Journey to the South Magnetic Pole by Professor T. W. Edgeworth David, F.R.S. 2 volumes, large octavo (235 x 173 mm). Contemporary red half morocco, red cloth sides, raised bands, titles and panelling to compartments gilt, top edges gilt, patterned endpapers. Photogravure frontispiece to each volume, 12 captioned tissue-guarded coloured plates, and 255 black and white other plates in all, 3 maps, panorama in end-pocket of volume II, and numerous illustrations and diagrams throughout. Without the errata slip in volume II. Extremities slightly rubbed and bumped, minor wear to corners, minor foxing to edges and occasional spotting to margins of text blocks. An excellent set. First edition. Shackleton's account of the British Antarctic Expedition of 1907?-9 (Nimrod), reviewed on publication by the Manchester Guardian as "the best book of Polar travel which has ever been written". The sledge expedition "to the south magnetic pole was one of the three foremost achievements of this expedition. The other two achievements were, first, the ascent and survey of Mount Erebus (12,448 feet), the active volcano on Ross Island and, second, the southern sledge journey, which reached within 100 miles of the south pole" (ODNB). The expedition established Shackleton as a "bona fide English hero," but the success of the book did little to alleviate "the financial problems left to him by the expedition" (Books on Ice). Sir Raymond Priestley (1886?-1974), a British Geologist and Antarctic explorer who accompanied Shackleton on the 1907?-1913 Antarctic expeditions, said, "For scientific leadership, give me Scott; for swift and efficient travel, Amundsen; but when you are in a hopeless situation, when there seems to be no way out, get on your knees and pray for Shackleton".

        Advertising Kit for a Midwest Clothing Company: Kloethe & Co.

      (Hot Springs, Arkansas, Indianapolis, and Chicago): Kloethe & Co., Kuh, Nathan & Fischer Co.. 1909). Edwardian-era advertising kit with a fascinating group of artifacts preserving the marketing methods of the Sincerity Clothes line of men's suits at the beginning of the 20th Century. It includes advertising price signs of the period, the window display ads, and the Kloethe & Co. advertising scrapbook preserving all of their newspaper advertisements for the 1909 campaign. All housed in a traveling display case, measuring 20.5" x 12" x 8". Black cloth over wooden boards, drop front, slot built into inner lid, nickel-plated clasps and lettered on inner side in silver. Overall very good with moderate wear to the outside of the case and leather handle detached on one side; contents near fine with individual signs with modest wear, ephemera lightly toned and with scattered nicks and tears.Namesake John M. Kloethe (1870-1929) from Boonville, Missouri set up as a tailor in Hot Springs, Arkansas at the end of the 19th Century. He entered into a partnership with a French immigrant tailor, Victor G. Verneux (1870-1937) sometime around 1903, establishing Kloethe & Co. at 607 Central Avenue in downtown Hot Springs. Their store thrived selling primarily the Sincerity Clothes line of men's suits. Joining with the Kahn Company of Indianapolis, they sponsored a semipro African-American baseball team called the Kloethe Reds, and continued in business as partners into the 1920s. Sometime around 1925 John Kloethe left the business to begin selling shoes, and Verneux retained the Central Avenue store as a menswear store until his death.The advertising kit contents include 220 signs, of which 81 are chalkboard style signs (5.5" x 7") with white and gilt painted lettering, red painted borders, rounded corners; 19 die-cut suit signs (3.5" x 5.5"); 43 pointing finger directional signs (3.5" x 9.25"), some with an embossed gilt and blue lettering; 65 die-cut framed signs (3.75" x 5.75") with embossed horse and horse shoe logo in blue and gilt in corners; 12 miscellaneous hand lettered die-cut signs. Additionally, three triptych folding promotional advertisements with humorous Arts and Crafts-style advertising art on the front covers that fold out to 21" x 11.25" and each holding a 7" x 11" window display advertising card repeating the illustration, and a 12mo stapled catalog with black and white illustrations throughout, and color illustrated softcovers, with cover art of a pipe-smoking hockey player wrapping his stick.Also housed in the kit are a Sincerity Clothes Winter catalogue offering an excellent guide to the single-breasted suits, suits for the college man, and overcoats of the period; a 78-page octavo advertising scrapbook with 110 tipped-in folding newspaper ads; two letters from suit manufacturer Kuh, Nathan & Fischer; and an amusing real photo postcard of Kloethe standing by a young child who rides on the back of a young elephant with the name of his store in the background. The kit and related material offers an excellent snapshot view of sales promotion methods of the time. .

      Massachusetts. 1909. Oblong octavo. Measuring 10" x 12". Black cloth photo album with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front cover. A collection of 127 sepia toned photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 6" x 8" with captions. An album compiled by Laurence C. Pond while away at a boys camp, Camp Wildwood, Maine in 1909. The photos include two panoramas of the tented encampment, as well as large 6" x 8" images of the campers and counselors, a stone fireplace from the main lodge, a group doing calisthenics, boys in their tent, and swimming. The journey to camp is documented in photos of the train yard and travel through Piscataquis Valley, Maine. Boys are seen participating in a variety of activities from exercise to sawing wood and balancing on logs, as you do. There are images of boys rowing, sleeping in tents, and posing with baseball bats. Maine's natural beauty is the setting for all of these photos showing off mountains, rivers, and lakes, including Spencer pond where they went trout fishing, seen here with a decent catch for the day. An extensive look at a boys camp shown through the amateur photography of a camper. .

        TO THE POLES BY AIRSHIP OR AROUND THE WORLD ENDWAYS.

      Los Angeles, Cal.: Baumgardt Publishing Co., 1909 - Octavo, pp. [1-13] 14-108 [109] [110-112: blank] [note: first and last leaves are blanks], inserted frontispiece (photographic portrait of the author), one illustration in text (diagram of the airship), original maroon cloth, front panel stamped in white. First edition. One of the more confused and shapeless products of eccentric American fantasy from the turn of the century, yet within this congealed lump of prose lurk sparks of unintentional hilarity and odd insight. The main section of the text is a compressed travelogue of a flight around the globe starting in the Gulf of Mexico, heading to the North Pole, thence over Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the South Pole, South America and back to North America. The ship is built of aluminum and powered by "liquid air." A touch of a button turns this into "VACUUM-ALUMINUM Corliss engines." The passengers of the ship witness various natural spectacles (lightning storms, tornadoes, volcanoes) and pass over an unknown continent with ruins of a lost civilization that might have been Atlantis. Part II consists of four short sketches, semi-unrelated to the main narrative. These narrate, partly via a speaking Sphinx, an apocalyptic future in which all the armies of the planet align themselves on the side of either East or West, and square off in what was ancient Israel. After one cataclysmic battle, and a cease fire to bury the dead, a lunar eclipse serves as a prelude for a vision of all the wars of the past, from Biblical, classical and medieval times; the sight of it sobers the nations of the world into a state of millennial peace. The author proclaims with Zionist fervor: "The chronometer of the universe is striking twelve. THE HOUR OF THE JEW HAS COME." Mankind finally arrives at the final utopia. An odd work which is not that easy to dismiss out of hand. The prescient rubs shoulders with the preposterous. Liquid air (whatever that means) is one of the author's obsessions, popping up here repeatedly. He foresees in the future the existence of vast factories with steel flues a thousand feet high built in the coldest parts of the earth to manufacture, or extract, liquid air and pipe it to the other parts of the earth. This sounds laughable, but, engineering issues aside, the atmosphere does consist partly of oxygen, which is flammable. The author is also bullish on radium, speculating that it may be the main ingredient of the sun; and that "- LIFE may be produced by means of rays of light generated by RADIUM." Vast pyramids of radium will be constructed in Europe to warm the climate and transform the land into an agricultural paradise. Elsewhere, and more impressively, he declares that Africa is the "birthplace of civilization." (At the time, this honor was usually given to the Fertile Crescent in Iraq; now it is believed that homo sapiens first appeared in the Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia.) Flying over what we would now call the Brazilian rain forest, he describes this as "God's CLEARING HOUSE of the world's physical forces," the most important source of oxygen and other essential elements. Much of the author's message can be dismissed as boilerplate bomfog (brotherhood of man, fatherhood of God -- which, with Mom and apple pie, has served as the Brazilian rain forest of politicians' oratory since primeval times). Yet in the midst of the sentimental blather and scientific howlers comes a pronouncement which lies still (especially now) at the heart of a vital controversy, ranging Malthusian pessimists and regulators on one side, and entrepreneurs on the other. This principal has only found widespread articulation recently with the arrival of the Information Age. "HUMAN LIFE IS THE GREATEST NATURAL RESOURCE OF THE UNIVERSE." A very short book (mercifully, given the clumsy writing) that manages nevertheless to corral a herd of important fantastic motifs together: the imaginary voyage, the tale of the future (including a future war), utopia, advanced technology, the clash of civilizat [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
