Housed in the original publisher's printed cardboard box (fine). A wonderful copy, certainly one of the best we have ever seen."in June 1909, Hodder and Stoughton announced that the Gift Book for that year was to be The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, appropriately so because 1909 was the centenary of the birth of the poem's best known translator, Edward Fitzgerald. Of the twenty plates in the book, the first, illustrating the opening quatrain on daybreak as the Sun Strikes the Sultan's Turret with a Shaft of Light' is one of Dulac's finest works and a perfect preface to the text... He depicted Omar as a bearded, world-weary man of about forty, who, whether in deep contemplation or gazing at the work of the potter, is, both in manner and dress, a humble, shabby scholar-poet. The oval faced women, unveiled, solemn and, even as slave girls, langorous, are dressed in muted colors that harmonize with their surroundings; the hang and folds of their garments beautifully observed and drawn, and the Persian carpets masterpieces of colour and design. Dulac saw Omar's humanity and resignation, and in these illustrations, as perhaps nowhere else, he revealed the full depth of insight into the character he was portraying" (White, p. 42).Hughey 21a.

His classic Stoic tome Meditations [Thoughts], written in Greek while on campaign between 170 and 180, is still revered as a literary monument to a philosophy of service and duty, describing how to find and preserve equanimity in the midst of conflict by following nature as a source of guidance and inspiration.Sir Russell Flint, the master water color artist, was born in 1880 in Edinburgh as the first son of Wighton Flint, a watercolorist and designer by profession. His first formal education in art was received at the age of 14 from the Royal Institute School of Art which he attended while working as an apprentice for a firm of printers.Having finished his six year apprenticeship as a draftsman he moved to London where he was employed as a medical illustrator. In 1903 he started working for the Illustrated London News as an illustrator, soon achieving success and fame.His earliest work includes illustrations done for the Illustrated London News from 1903 to 1907 and his first book illustrations: King Solomon’s Mines in 1905, followed by Imitation of Christ in 1908, two volumes of Savoy Operas (Gilbert and Sullivan) and The Thoughts of Marcus Aurelius. Later prominent works include The Scholar Gipsy (1912) and The Heroes, and The Canturbury Tales of Geoffrey Chaucer (1913). Ransom, p. 395.

        Liberalism and Socialism by Winston S. Churchill, first edition, only printing, bound in Pamphlets & Leaflets for 1908, Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      London: The Liberal Publication Department, 1909. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Here is the elusive first edition, only printing of Churchill's speech defining the difference between Liberalism and Socialism given in Dundee on 4 May 1908. On the rare occasions we see this very early Churchill speech pamphlet offered, it is typically removed from a bound volume. Here is not only the speech, but the bound volume. The pamphlet itself is a 4 page paper pamphlet dated "15/6/08" published by the Liberal Publication Department and printed by Strangeways & Sons. The volume in which the speech is bound is likewise published by The Liberal Publication Department and contains pamphlets and leaflets published before 16 November 1908. Liberal Publications bound volumes of this era are typically found bound in a black leather pebble grain spine over green ribbed buckram covers. Here is a less commonly seen binding variant, being bound in a dark brown quarter cloth spine over heavy gray cardboard covers. The book measures 8.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide by 1 inch thick. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets. The book is a fascinating piece of history, containing pamphlets and leaflets of all shapes and sizes, many of which are folded in and, we imagine, are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. Condition of the bound volume is very good+ The binding shows only light wear at the corners and minor soiling of the boards. The spine is in excellent condition. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are bright and tight. Mild spotting is confined to the title page and page edges. Protected in a removable, archival mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A24, Woods A13.

        Autograph letter signed "Reger," postmarked June 27, [?]1911

      . 1 page. Octavo. A "Kartenbrief" to "Kurdirektor von Beckerath" in Bad Pyrmont. With integral address leaf. Reger agrees to programs, "including the one by Frau Dr. Fischer," and goes on to discuss rehearsals of various pieces including his Hiller Variations and Violin Concerto on July 19th and the 5th Brandenburg Concerto on July 20th.. "[Reger's] musical style, which combines a chromatic harmonic language with Baroque and Classical formal procedures, situates him as both a successor to late 19th-century Romanticism and a forerunner of early 20th- century modernism..." Reger met the 16-year-old violinist Adolf Busch at the Cologne Conservatory in 1909. "Two years later, Reger and Busch gave their first public recital together at a Bach-Reger Festival (which also included a performance of the Violin Concerto) in Bad Pyrmont..." "... Although Reger continued to produce chamber music in considerable quantities, his Leipzig years are most notable for his maturation as an orchestral composer... The Hiller Variations (1907) were followed by the Violin Concerto (1907-8) and the Symphonischer Prolog zu einer Tragödie (1908)... Reger's orchestral output gradually acquired softer, more Romantic contours. This was especially true after 1911 when Reger became director of the orchestra of the ducal court of Saxe-Meiningen in a line of succession that included Bülow and Richard Strauss." John Williamson in Grove online An interesting letter mentioning two of Reger's own works together with one of Bach's (one of his greatest influences), in rehearsal presumably for a performance at the Bach-Reger festival with Busch mentioned above.

        [EXTENSIVE ARCHIVE OF PHOTOGRAPHS, MANUSCRIPTS, AND PRINTED MATERIAL FROM THE INDIAN INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL IN CARLISLE, PENNSYLVANIA]

      [Carlisle, Pa. Primarily 1909-1911].. [Carlisle, Pa. Primarily 1909-1911].. Thirteen photographs, dozens of typed sheets, several handwritten documents, seventy-seven periodical issues, eighty-four printed pieces of ephemera and small booklets, and more. Detailed below. Some light wear and soiling, but generally very good condition throughout. A large and important archive of printed documents, photographs, manuscripts, and ephemera collected by Alfred W. Ramsey, an instructor at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School. In the late 19th century the United States government undertook a program to "civilize" Indian children and assimilate them into the mainstream of American life. To that end the Carlisle Indian Industrial School was founded, the first boarding school for Native Americans, which operated from 1879 to 1918. The school was closed at the outbreak of World War I and turned into a hospital. The success of the school at Carlisle led to the creation of several other such institutions. Controversial in nature, the aim of Carlisle was to educate Native Americans in order to encourage assimilation into the culture of the United States. The current archive is rich in visual imagery of the school and its students, and the printed items offer strong research opportunities into this controversial institution. Alfred W. Ramsey organized and ran the Business Department at Carlisle from January 1909 to November 1910, when he resigned, feeling that he "ought to do better" and desiring to go into business for himself. Among the photographs is a large group shot of the members of Draughon's Practical Business College in Nashville, dated Nov. 22, 1907. Ramsey is presumably among the individuals pictured, possibly as an instructor, as he states in a letter dated November 1910 that he is twenty-seven years old and had been engaged in the Business College field almost six years at that point, having held various positions. Ramsey did not, however, go into business for himself, finding circumstances less than ideal upon his return home. Instead, it appears he sought a further degree at Purdue University. Among his effects in the archive is a small pennant for the class of 1913 which would have been worn at a class reunion; there are also many candid snapshots of the Purdue campus grounds and students around the campus. The archive comprises thirteen large photographs of students and the school grounds; significant runs of three periodicals published at the school during Ramsey's tenure there; school prospectuses and mission statements; student narratives including two partially printed books accomplished in manuscript by male and female students listing their names, tribes, ambitions, etc.; student typing exercises and essays; printed lesson sheets; various annual reports; speeches read to students; and a host of printed ephemera items, such as menus, dance cards, handbills, and booklets. Additionally, there are photographs from Ramsey's time at Purdue, after he left Carlisle; thirty-six documents which appear to be typing exercises done by Ramsey while at Droughton; and a handful of other personal effects. A pair of small moccasins and a piece of leather tooled with a proverb are also present, presumably from his time at the school. The photographs are primarily group shots (about 8 x 10 inches each) depicting students in costume as Indians and Pilgrims, Conquistadors, etc., totaling eleven in number. There is also a large panorama of the campus (9 3/4 x 50 inches), accompanied by a postcard showing the same scene. Additionally, there is a large format image of graduation (13 1/2 x 16 1/2 inches) showing a lecture hall filled with students around a stage; the same image appears in the annual report for 1909 and is captioned as graduation for that year. Periodicals are as follow: THE INDIAN CRAFTSMAN, published monthly with issues running from Feb. 1909 to March 1910 (volume one, issues 1-5; volume two, issues 1-5, 7); THE RED MAN (formerly THE INDIAN CRAFTSMAN), issues running from Feb. 1910 to May 1911 (volume two, issues 6- 10; volume three, issues 1-9); THE CARLISLE ARROW, the weekly school newspaper, with issues running from Jan. 15, 1909 to April 19, 1912 (volume five, issues 19-42, including the specially bound commencement issue; volume six, issues 1, 4, 10-14, 19, 21, 24, 25, 27-32, 35-39, including the commencement issue; volume seven, issues 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 19; volume eight, issue 32, which is the specially bound commencement issue). The two partially printed ledgers, or Character Books as they are labeled on the cover, have been completed by Ramsey's students. They detail name, tribe, birthstone, age, home address, several different "favorites" including "Favorite walk at Carlisle" and "Favorite delicacy while at school," ambitions for after school, and a blank which asks, "What is the ideal character of your sex?" Altogether, seventy- nine students are detailed in the two books, encompassing tribes from across the entire country, from the Mohawk and Seneca, to the Cheyenne and Oneida, to the Walla Walla and Nez Perce. The student exercise papers include six handwritten essays (each about 500 words), as well as dozens of typed sheets containing practice form letters, essays, a few poems, and other similar text. One essay of four pages is entitled "Modern Business Training for Indians - and Its Need." Other typed essays are titled "What Should Be the Life of a Carlisle Student" and "What I Should Do When I Return to My People." Some of these have manuscript corrections in pencil or ink. Other typed documents include transcripts of speeches made at the school for commencement or otherwise. Yet another typed document details a "Complete Inventory of the Property and Books and Supplies of the Business Department." The list includes rulers, rubber bands, dictionaries, typewriter oil, inkwells, memorandum books, and myriad other items, including "48 phonographic amanuensis." There are also several documents and exercises in shorthand, which Ramsey taught. In addition to the periodicals, there are several printed items from the press at the school. There are forty-one pieces of printed ephemera (keepsakes, programs, menus) as well as twenty-three small pamphlet keepsakes (annual calendars, commencement programs, etc.) and two copies of the illustrated work, THIS IS CARLISLE, describing the work at the school. Additionally, there are fourteen dance cards and programs, thirteen of which have the tiny pencil still attached, and four athletic- related items, two of which mention famed Indian athlete Jim Thorpe. There are also approximately thirty-four letters and other personal papers, some of which relate to Ramsey's correspondence with the Department of Indian Affairs regarding his position. A vast and interesting archive, capturing a segment of the history of the Carlisle Indian school in the decade before it closed.
