        SHEFFIELD CAR COMPANY PHOTOGRAPHIC CATALOGUE

      Three Rivers, MI: Fairbanks, Morse & Co., Sheffield Car Company, (n. d.). Ca. 1910 - July 1920. Flexible burgundy calf-post binder, with brass screw posts at gutter margin, front cover with renewed gilt lettering and red fro. Moderate wear (rubbing and some chipping to binder), some fraying to photograph edges (as they are linen-backed), but still sharp images. Some minor creasing and light soiling. Withal, an About VG example.. 73 linen-back photographic leaves. This scarce factory photo album records the trolleys, gasoline powered railway motor cars, railway inspection cars and engines for the Sheffield Car Company. Sheffield began as the Sheffield Velocipede Car Company in 1882, and was based on the patents of George S. Sheffield, and the company quickly began building velocipedes, railway inspection cars, and other types of railway maintenance vehicles. In 1893, Fairbanks, Morse began acquiring the company and patented a two-cycle gasoline engine revolutionizing railway inspection equipment, and maintenance equipment, as well as motorized trolleys, and passenger cars. This catalogue begins with an image of a deluxe No. 16 Type C Inspection Motor Car which could seat nine people, reached speeds of 35 mph, and actually had a hardtop, windscreen and cowcarcher. There are a number of fine photos of the No. 24 Motor Car Trolley -- this one was sold to the Sanford Traction Company which began regular service in Sanford, Florida in April 1909 -- illustrating the exterior, interiors, 4 cycle engine, transmission, and chassis. There are also pictures of the motor cars, engines, axels, chassis, transmissions, and more for a different version of the No. 16 with a soft hardtop; a deluxe four-seater motor car, No. 14; No. 32 which was equipped with a kerosene or gasoline, two-cylinder, two-cycle, air-cooled engine which drove the wheels direct through the rear axle; the No. 33 which was a larger version, the No. 26, sides, top & bottom; the No. 12 a gasoline-powered hand-car, and more. The Sheffield 42 was a deluxe inspection car for moving men and tools, and could even tow a trailer as well; the Sheffield 40 was a big powerful car that could carry a bridge, or construction crew with material; the Sheffield 41 was a light and economical car for use by maintainers and supervisors, with 2-cylinder, 2-cycle engine. There are several factory photos showing the Assembly Department, Foundry, Blacksmith Shop, Machine Shop, Pattern Storage Building, Offices, and even the 1/2 mile circular test track. Fairbanks-Morse continued operating the plant into the 1950s, but the factory was eventually sold off and demolished. See: Solomon, Railway Maintenance Equipment, pp. 102-105; Howson, Maintenance of Way Cyclopedia, pp. 685-686; Sheffield Velocipede Car Company, Builders of Wooden Railway Cars; Mille, A Chronology of the development of the city of Sanford, FL (1975), p. 40.

The firm's publications served to popularize illustrators including Thomas Nast, William Momberger, Justin H. Howard, Palmer Cox, and Ida Waugh. After John McLoughlin, Jr.'s death in 1905, the McLoughlin firm suffered from the loss of his artistic and commercial leadership. In 1920, McLoughlin Bros., Inc. was sold to Milton Bradley, the Brooklyn factory was closed, and the company was moved to Springfield, Mass.

        Les Origines de la France Contemporaine

In original French. Volumes as follows: Volume I & II- L'Ancient RegimeVolume III -VIII La RevolutionVolume IX-XI Regime ModerneVolume XII (bound with volume XI) Index General. Hippolyte Adolphe Taine was a French critic and historian. He was the chief theoretical influence of French naturalism, a major proponent of sociological positivism and one of the first practitioners of historicist criticism. Literary historicism as a critical movement has said to originate with him. Taine had a profound effect on French literature and the field of criticism and history. Friedrich Nietzsche referred to him as the greatest living historian , and he had a special relationship with author Emile Zola and influenced much of his work. Taine'sOrigines seeks to show that france's primary fault lay in excessive centralisation, originating during the ancient regime and intensified during the french revolution. Taine asserted that far from promoting liberty, the Revolution merely transferred absolute power to even more illberal hands. The first volumewas originally published in 1876 anhas undergone many revisions and editions. Condition: Rebound in quarter crushed morocco bindings with original paper wraps preserved. Externally, smart with just some slight bumping and rubbing. Spines heavily sunned. Occasional mark to boards. Internally, firmly bound.

Spine ends and corners worn. Light foxing, otherwise the photographs are bright, rich, and clean. Very good. An exceedingly rare and amazing presentation copy of Gurley's book of Chicago park photographs, with only two known copies in existence. Gurley has inscribed the book: "To my friend C.L. Frank with the hope of many happy returns Wm. F.E. Gurley Feb. 2, 1911." A "home- made" book with a title page and three leaves of Contents, all typewriter carbon copies, and 115 gorgeous cyanotypes featuring Chicago locations. The photographs depict scenes in various Chicago parks, specifically Washington Park (1-10), Jackson Park (11-87), Garfield Park (88-93), Douglas Park (94-101), Humboldt Park (102- 107), and some "Miscellaneous Views Outside of Parks" (108-115). The views are landscapes, buildings, bridges, statues, monuments, and so on. The Jackson Park images include a number of structures left over from the 1893 Columbian Exposition. William Frank Eugene Gurley was a graduate of Cornell; the 1908 Cornell "Ten Year Book" notes him as the Curator of Paleontology at the Walker Museum, University of Chicago. He was also listed in the 1917 Illinois Academy of Sciences directory as a paleontologist. As the present book shows, he was also a competent and serious amateur photographer. He had a good sense of history and organization in both the photos themselves and in the arrangement of his book. A rare work, almost certainly produced in a small print run. As the titlepage and Index leaves are carbon copies, and as the maximum number of carbon copies which can be produced at any one time is limited to four or five, the whole edition was probably limited to that number. OCLC locates only one copy at the Library of Congress, which Gurley presented to the artist, Joseph Pennell. This is, and will continue to be, a useful source for Chicago historians, architects, landscape architects, and urban historians in general. A very pleasing book. OCLC 44969589.

        NORTH POLE: Its Discovery In 1909 Under the Auspices of the Peary Arctic Club.With an Introduction by Theodore Roosevelt and a Foreword by Gilbert H. Grosvenor

      New York Frederick A. Stokes 1910 - First edition. A copy WITH WONDERFUL ASSOCIATION MATERIAL. At the front of the book is tipped in an original photograph of Ootah, the Eskimo who had accompanied Peary on his 1906 travels nearest the pole and had reached the pole with Peary on the expedition which is recorded in this volume. Peary had spent 30 hours at the North Pole accompanied by Ootah and a few other Eskimos. With 8 full-page color illustrations, 100 black and white illustrations from photos, and a large folding color map at the rear. Large 8vo, publisher's original navy blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and upper cover which also features a pictorial vignette in gilt, white, blue, gray and red, t.e.g. xxxii, 373 pp. A handsome copy, the interior very fresh and clean, the cloth bright and clean and well preserved. A very interesting 1953 owner's notation on the front blank regarding an original photograph tipped in of Ootah, the Eskimo who accompanied Peary on his travels to the North Pole. A HANDSOME COPY OF THIS IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION, WITH FINE ASSOCIATION MATERIAL. Peary, of course, was the first to reach the North Pole, and this is the account of his expedition. Along with Amundsen's THE SOUTH POLE, this work represents the culmination of centuries of man's attempt to reach, literally, the ends of the earth. "Commander Peary has made all dwellers in the civilized world his debtors; but, above all, we, his fellow Americans, are his debtors" (-from the introduction by Roosevelt).

        CORRECTED TYPESCRIPT, SIGNED, OF HIS NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW TRIBUTE TO MARK TWAIN

      [New York], 1910. 3-1/4 pages, typescript, with pencil and ink corrections, on four leaves of foolscap. Folded and a bit used, with pin-holes in upper left corner and some occasional minor soiling, otherwise very good. Half morocco folding clamshell case. 3-1/4 pages, typescript, with pencil and ink corrections, on four leaves of foolscap. The corrected typescript of this exceptional, personal and anecdotal memoir by Carnegie of his longtime friend, with scattered corrections and revisions throughout (in at least two hands, including Carnegie's), and signed by him in pencil at the conclusion. The typescript is docketed in ink on the verso of the last leaf in ink in an unknown hand: "N.A.R. Mark Twain Andrew Carnegie," and caption titled in pencil at the top of the first page in the same hand. While readily accessible public records include Carnegie among the attendees at the 23 April Memorial Service for Clemens in New York, it does not appear that he delivered a eulogy there, or in the days immediately following. Rather, he chose to publish a tribute to Clemens in the June issue of THE NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW, and the working typescript in hand is the basis for that tribute. After opening on a grand note ("'Mark Twain gone! - such the refrain that comes to my lips at intervals. The gaiety of nations eclipsed, the most original genius of our age and one of the sweetest, noblest men that ever lived"), Carnegie turns to the personal and particular, writing of their first meeting ("... we met may years ago upon the ocean ... He told me , much to my surprise that the idea of 'A Yankee at the Court of King Arthur' came from reading my first literary outburst ... I was young then and naturally greatly flattered that the business man should be hailed as fellow-author. The intimacy continued to grow until I could safely consider myself one of his circle"), and of how, in time, "My admiration for him increased as I knew him better, until great as the author was, the man, the friend took first place." He recounts his meeting with Clemens after the death of his wife, tells a lengthy anecdote about his providing whiskey as a tonic during Clemens's illness, commends Clemens's treatment of his creditors during his financial crisis, and remarks on Clemens's wrath in the face of injustice. He nears his conclusion: "And so he passed away with the smile upon his face. Nor would we have it otherwise. Mark Twain has nothing to dread hereafter and he now rests close by the side of his wife and children all having preceded him save one. The earth had lost its charm, and philosopher to the last, he was ready to go ...," and after a selection of verse, finishes poignantly and personally: "And yet - and yet - I find the tears drop as I write" [Carnegie's spelling errors are corrected and the revisions included in these quotations]. Less than a year before his death, Clemens had stood in tribute to Carnegie at a dinner in his friend's honor held by the Lotos Club.
