        KODAK GLIMPSES OF CHICAGO PARKS

      Chicago: Wm. F.E. Gurley, 1910.. 115 wide-margined cyanotypes, printed rectos only, plus three leaves of Contents. Contemporary three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. 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.

      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.

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.

        ALBUM OF 11 SILVER-GELATIN PHOTOGRAPHS BY A PROFESSIONAL, TAKEN IN KINGSTON IN 1910, THREE YEARS AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE

      1910. Original photograph album. Modern boards. Very Good. This album contains 11 silver-gelatin prints, taken and numbered by a professional, and featuring a panoramic view of Kingston, three years after the city was devastated by the 1907 earthquake. The images are mounted onto black cardstock leaves, with typewritten captions. Bound in black boards, printed cover label, 10" x 13.5". The photographs vary in size from 9.5" x 7.75" to 4.75" x 3.75" Highlighting customary pleasures such as tobacco, trading at the Jubilee Market, and traditional costume and dwellings, these photographs are significant in that they illustrate the reconstruction and preservation of an important Caribbean community after it was razed by a natural disaster. In these views of Kingston as well as surrounding villages and a banana plantation, the photographer captures the essence of indigenous life more than a century ago. The island's natural features, recorded on a motorcar sojourn, include the exquisite Castleton Garden, a panoramic birdseye view of Kingston, local men and women at work, &c.

        Five Photo Albums of South East Asia, Bangkok and Siam

      Southeast Asia, 1910. Southeast Asia: Siam, Java, Batavia, Singapore, Malaya, 1910-1921. Set of 5 photograph albums, containing 438 original snapshot views, largely featuring Bangkok in Thailand, and Java, with scenes from the public cremation ceremony of King Chulalongkorn the coronation of King Rama VI in 1911, and the Wat Pho Fair in held in Bangkok April 1919. Taken by Percy William May whom was involved in the photographic paper trade for a British company established in Siam, and whom thus frequently travelled a circuit from Bangkok to Semarang, Kuala Lumpur, Medan, Batavia, Penang and Singapore. 8vo. oblong cloth albums containing sepia, and black and white photographs, neatly ensconced behind window mounts, recto and verso onto cardstock leaves, several with manuscript captions to verso. Each volume with a detailed list explaining and dating the views, typed by his wife Emma Amelia (née Burgess). Photographs measure approximately 9.5 x 7 cm. Some mild age-toning, otherwise in Very Good Condition. Photographs of Siam from this period are scarce. This noteworthy photographic archive spanning eleven years in Southeast Asia, centering largely in Bangkok and Java, features early and scarce views of Siam, while illustrating colonial development and prosperity, the lot comprising original snapshot views taken by an active representative of the Spicer Brothers Ltd., stationers and producers of sensitised albumen paper who were established in Bangkok. Early views of Bangkok, approximately 120 in number, capture and commemorate historically significant events for Siam, with photographs pertaining to the cremation of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) which was an elaborate public ceremony held 16 March 1911; others showing a festively adorned city and large crowds attending the coronation of King Vajiravudh (Rama VI) in December 1911; and several taken at the Wat Pho Fair in April 1919. On a voyage from Singapore onboard the on 25 October 1910 Mr. May and the other passengers learned of the death of King Chulalongkorn who passed away only two days earlier. Particularly ephemeral are the images taken on the premaine ground after the king's cremation and before the removal of buildings which were specifically erected for the event. Especially rare, pertaining to the coronation event, is a view of the royal state barque preparing to take the king to the Bangkok Wat for a religious ceremony, Prince & Princess Alexander of Teck along with other European nobles seeing him off from a covered pavillion styled pier. The streets near the Grand Palace and government buildings are beautifully decorated. [King Chulalongkorn reigned from 1868 to 1910 and was actively engaged in wide-ranging reforms to modernize the country. He abolished slavery and the feudal system, created a centralized bureaucracy and a professional army. Vajiravudh was crowned on 11 November 1910, and one year later held a 13-day coronation celebration which was attended by representatives of fourteen countries.] A river scene wherein men are navigating a long canoe is inscribed to verso with a map of "Hong Kong Bank Lane" which leading to the Meham River. An important street for Europeans, the map places a bungalow residence, the Bangkok United Club, and the corporate offices of the Siam Forest Company. Highly uncommon is a series of 39 snapshot photographs taken while Mr. May attended the Wat Phi Fair from 3-7 April 1919. In the bustling streets he captures market vendors, indigenous Thai people coming from near and far for the event. Also in Bangkok, we find views of Sra Pathum Palace and Christ Church, the latter built in 1905 on a foundation of teak logs and boasting a marble floored sanctuary seen in the interior view, as well as a single exterior photograph of the Roman Catholic church. Quaint street scenes simply captioned "Bangkok" include an old military camp behind a picket fence, and a bungalow. He visits the markets of Klong Poh Yome district, the Russian Legation, and Wat Cheng (now Wat Arun). Typically in Bangkok, he settled in the Oriental Hotel, which was the first hotel built in Thailand when it opened as in 1879. [Located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, it is now one of two flagship properties of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.] Mr. May spent Christmas 1910 in Bangkok, and poses with a group of associates, together with American Minister and Consul General in Bangkok Mr. Hamilton King, and his wife. [Mr. Hamilton King, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary for the United States of America, was born at St. John's, Newfoundland, in 1852. He was appointed Minister-Resident in Siam in January, 1898, and promoted to his present position in 1903. He died two years after this photograph, in December 1912 in Bangkok.] Also present is Arpad Richard Hertzka, a businessman involved in paper importing, first in Thailand from the early 1900s to the late 1910s as manager of Messrs Alois Schweiger and Co , Ltd. Bangkok, then in Shanghai from the early 1920s to 1949. Usually travelling throughout Southeast Asia by steamship, in April 1919 he takes an overland rail journey on the then newly opened Bangkok-Penang railway which was established in July 1918. His return to Europe in 1921, beginning with a railway journey by way of Penang, offers final glimpses of the Phra Pathommachedi stupa and homes built over water and supported by stilts. Java in Indonesia is also a focal point of one of these albums, and seen dispersed among others, which include the 9th century Borodubur temple ruins and its bell-shaped stupas on the Arupadhatu level, as well as the exquisitely carved exterior walls. Other scenes are captured in Lembang, Surkarta and Sukabumi, amongst the rice fields of Sukabumi at the foothills of Mount Gedo, at the Java Botanical Gardens, and on a tour of the volcanos Salak, Bromo, Battok, etc., A charming photograph shows a modest bamboo raft on Lake Bagendit, and a road is being constructed through a jungle for improved communications. During the Governor General's visit to Java in October 1911, busier than usual street scenes in Semarang are filled with horse-drawn carriages, bicycles and foot traffic. Other views show the Simpang hotel, a Dutch colonial church, and nautical views of the historic Semarang lighthouse built in 1883 which remains in operation today. After its opening in 1910, when in Surabaya, West Java, Mr. May settled at the Oranje Hotel. Indonesia, the world's fourth-most-populous country today, looked drastically different a century ago. From Buitenzorg (Bogor), he includes views of the Governor General's palace and tours the botanical gardens. An expedition to the summit of a mountain pass leads to a spectacular view of Java's Bromo volcano in full steam. A nostalgic view captures the Empire Hotel in Kuala Lumpur shortly after opening its doors, with rickshaws waiting for passengers at the front gate. Attracting the finest of visitors, advertisements boasted that it was "fitted with electric lights and fans... private bathrooms attached." On his 1914 tour he also visits a botanical garden in Kuala Lumpur and the Lata Kinjang Falls near Chendariang. Lovely images are taken of the Taman Sari Water Castle, a site of a former royal garden of the Sultanate of Yogyakarta, showing the entranced to the bathing complex as well as fallen structures wrecked in the 1867 earthquake. Some time was spent in Malaysia. From Ipoh, the mining capital of Perak, we find a Malay mosque, a European clubhouse, the Grand Hotel, and a view to demonstrate the white marble roads, and another of the marble cliffs. From Penang he includes excellent photographs of the well appointed Raffles Hotel which dates back to early colonial times, including his suite. In Singapore he visits a coconut plantation, and stays at the Adelphi Hotel. Whilst in Batavia, capital of the Dutch East Indies (now Kota, Jakarta), he settled in the Nederlanden Hotel, a lovely colonial building erected in 1794 as the residence of Pieter Tenzy. [After standing for two centuries, in 1969 it was demolished and replaced with Bina Graha Presidential Office. It was also the home of Governor General Thomas Stanford Raffles from 1811-1815.] Yet more festivities were taking place in Southeast Asia during his time abroad. In Medan, Sumatra, on 31 August 1911, the photographer attends a grand birthday celebration for Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands. He stayed in Medan for several days or weeks, at the Hotel de Boer, built in 1898. [From humble beginnings as a small kingdom on the Deli River delta, in the early 1900s Medan became a booming plantation town and administrative centre, attracting wealthy Europeans and rendering great fortunes as Sumatra's tobacco, rubber, palm oil and tea fetched high prices on the world markets. The Deli district tobacco was considered the best in the world.] The final album, beginning with views taken from the veranda of the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok, illustrates the return journey for Europe, accompanied by his wife. The last view of Bangkok is of the view of the Phra Pathom Chedi stupa captured from a railway station whilst en route to Java, Medan in Sumatra, Penang, and finally Colombo in Ceylon. The voyage was made on HMS Phra Ruang, an R-class destroyer built in 1916 for the Royal Navy as HMS Radiant, which had, only one month before this snapshot photograph, been transferred to the Royal Siamese Navy as Phra Ruang in September 1920. In April 1921 they are traversing the Suez Canal, affording views of Port Said. The album concludes in June 1921 with views of the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway in North Devon (a water-powered funicular railway established in 1888). Percy William May (1181-1958) was established in Bangkok as a representative for Spicer Brothers, a British wholesale stationery company which was established and trading in Southeast Asia. Spicer Bros. (Foreign & Colonial) Ltd. is listed in the 1914 Bangkok and Siam Directory, with Percy W. May as its representative. The company had a printing office in Bangkok and did some photographic work. Percy married Emmie Amelia Burgess in 1913, and she evidently stayed with him in Bangkok for some before the couple returned to England in 1921. Spicer Brothers Ltd. was a partnership between Henry, Edward, and Augustin Spicer, wholesale stationers and suppliers of sensitised albumen paper known from the early 1880s. At some point William Gage Spicer was also a partner in the Spicer Brothers firm. Later called Blackfriars Photographic and Sensitising Supply Co., the partnership was dissolved by mutual consent in March 1895 and the company was sold. In 1898 when the company was merged with the London Photographic Supply Co. to form the London & Blackfriars Photographic Supply Co. In 1899 London & Blackfriars sold the sensitised paper portion of the firm's operations to Houghton. In Southeast Asia, the company Spicer Bros. (Foreign & Colonial) Ltd. continued with the family name. Percy William May is named in the 1914 Bangkok and Siam Directory, as the company's representative. His quarters were at a bungalow situated on Hong Kong Bank Lane in Bangkok, and also used as the mess for employees of the Siam Forest Company Ltd. . Very Good.

Ten volumes; 6 inches x 8 7/8 in., half-title; two page, Wordsworth autograph letter signed, mounted on a paper tab and bound in the first volume; photographic frontispiece, portrait in two forms: both colored and monochrome; title-page in red & black, with vignette. Illustrated with 66 photogravures in monochrome, and each is accompanied by a hand-colored form of the plate, with titled tissue guards. Most pages are unopened. This appears to be one of a small number of low numbered sets in full leather, with the plates in two forms, and most likely, the Wordsworth ALS added by the publisher. Bound in full, dark green morocco leather, by The Riverside Press, with their stamp, with five raised bands on the spines, gilt titles, gilt floral designs on the spine and covers, doublures in darker green morocco, with simple gilt borders, dark green, watered silk endpapers, green silk bookmarker ribbons bound in,top-edges gilt. The spines show typical fading of the green leather to brown, light fading to cover edges. With the bookplates of Cleveland, Ohio based book collector, William G. Mather (1857-1951) on the endpapers. A fine set with the plates in two states, and a two page Wordsworth letter bound in. Wordsworth letters are uncommon. The two page, 7 1/4 in. x 9 in. Wordsworth letter is written on a light blue paper, and the lower and fore-edges have been folded so it fits in the book. It shows two postmarks on the back: Free 13 AP 1839; Bath AP 11 [1839], and a small red wax seal, the letter shows a chip to the fore-edge of the second page, some light wear, dusting. It is addressed to Thomas Noon Talfourd, and regards the issue of Copyright that Talfourd and others were involved in during the 1830's-'40's. [Partial contents]: My dear Sergeant Talfourd Your Letter just received I am mortified not a little that you should have had so much trouble and made such a sacrifice-to meet so unworthy a House of Commons. That can be tolerant of the heartlessness and injustice of that assembly is what vexes me most in the whole business- I entirely approve of the Publication you meditate -only by selecting two or three petitions you [-] offend some of those Authors to whom the little distinction was not paid-I therefore submit whether it would be advisable to print any of them.-- As a fact connected with my own case, I will mention that in the year 1805- I concluded a long Poem [The Prelude] upon the formation of my own mind; part of which you saw in MS when I had the pleasure of a [-] visit from you at Rydal. That book still [-] in MS. Its publication has [-] been prevented mainly by the personal character of [-] it. Had it been published as soon as it was finished the Copyright would long since have expired in case of my decease. Now, I do honestly believe [-] that Poem is given to the world before twenty eight years had elapsed after the composition would scarcely have paid its own expenses. Were it published now, in the [-] and of such reputation as I have acquired I have reason to believe that [-] the proposed form it would be respectable- and my posterity, even as the law now is, would [-] by the delay- but in the other case neither they, nor I would have got a farthing from it. if my life had not been prolonged. The profit such as it might be would all have gone to Printers and Publishers, I would of course [-] would have allowed me to be in Town before the Bill comes on again. With best wishes I remain affectionately your much obliged Friend [signed]: William Wordsworth If you should see Mr. Milnes [-] tell him [-] much gratified in learning that he had [-] of your Yorkshire [-].

        [Work-From-Home/Mail Order Business Archive]

      Various (Norwood OH, Pittsburgh PA, etc.), [ca. 1910-1912]. Very good. Archive containing a wide variety of printed materials, more than several dozen individual items, some 100+ pages in total. Toning, wear throughout. A handful of items fragile. But vast majority of contents generally very good. A detailed list of contents is available upon request. A substantial archive of broadsides, advertisements, flyers, catalogues, guides, correspondence, and other ephemera gathered by one H.W. Jones of Ohio in his quest to establish a profitable mail order and/or work from home business. The archive includes several small books and pamphlets on running a successful mail order business (as well as two sample business plans for same). Also numerous promotional circulars, catalogues, and other marketing materials for a wide variety of potential mail order goods: "instantaneous" water heaters, self-heating gasoline irons (yikes), bunion shields, rubber diapers, magic tricks, printing contraptions, joke books, tire repair kits, thimbles, fire engines, as well as other novelties and household products. A number of rate cards for placing classified and other advertisements are also present, as are form letters and other materials from several companies offering mail order services: addresses, leads, etc. The archive suggests Jones considered many of these possible avenues, but his longest sustained engagement appears to have been The United Manufacturing Company of Leipsic, OH - makers of "Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers." Extensive correspondence with the company (both form and personalized - including a vigorous defense of the product after Jones raised doubts) are present as are invoices, contracts, testimonials, and holograph drafts of Jones' own form correspondence on behalf of the product, likely produced in hopes of recruiting - as such schemes were wont to do - more salesmen. Overall, a fascinating look at pre-depression America through the lens of a dodgy industry that continues in many similar forms to this day.

        The People's Rights

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1910. First edition, only printing. Paperback. This is the first edition, first state of this striking, scarce, and fragile early collection of Churchill's speeches. In 1904, Churchill quit the Conservative Party and joined the Liberals, beginning a dynamic chapter in his political career that saw him champion progressive causes and be branded a traitor to his class. In 1910, when The People's Rights was published, Winston Churchill was a powerful political force and a member of the Cabinet. From December 3-11, 1909 Churchill was on the campaign trail on behalf of the Liberals. The People's Rights is a distillation of these nine days of speeches, criticizing the House of Lords (which had rejected the Liberal Government's budget, thus precipitating the campaign) and championing Free Trade, a graduated income tax, luxury tax, and surtaxes on unearned income. Churchill's efforts were not wasted; as a result of the election, the Liberals would achieve a slim majority and passage of their budget. The People's Rights was published in an exceptionally perishable form, in bright yellow-orange paper wraps (with a halftone photo of Churchill on the cover) and printed on cheap, pulp paper. Consequently few copies survive, and wear, losses, and general deterioration is common to those copies that endure. There are two states of this first and only printing. The first state features and Appendix and an Index (at pages 149-152), while the second replaces the Index with a second Appendix. Here is the desirable first edition, first state. Given the inherent fragility of the edition, this copy is in very good condition. The illustrated wraps remain bright and firmly attached. The front cover is notably complete, with only fractional loss to the corners and trivial edge wear. The rear cover shows a .5 x .75 inch loss at the lower left corner but is otherwise complete. The spine shows some loss at the heel to a maximum depth of .75 inch, minor chipping at the head, and an abrasion just above and partially impacting the price. All title, author, and publisher print remains intact and clearly legible. The contents are toned, as inevitable with the cheap pulp paper, but both less toned and less brittle than we often see. First state is confirmed by a single appendix, an index, and p.71 numbered '1'. We find no previous ownership marks. Light spotting appears confined to the half title, title, and final Index pages. The final Index page shows a 2 inch closed tear. An original folded four-page leaflet advertisement and order form titled "Trade List of The Daily Mail Sixpenny Novels" is laid in. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A31.2.a, Woods/ICS A16(aa), Langworth p.97

        INTERNATIONAL STOCK FOOD "3 FEEDS FOR ONE CENT" COLORFUL BROADSIDE.

      Litho. Dept. of International Stock Food Company, n.d. (ca 1910). - 20 1/2" x 28 1/4" colorful chromolithograph that promotes how International Stock Food will make the sows raise more healthy pigs. An elaborate and colorful broadside that was taken from a book given to purchasers of 25 pounds of International Stock Animal Feed. The lithographs were originally folded within the book so it is normal to see horizontal and vertical folds. The company was founded in Minneapolis in 1886, by Marion Willis Savage, and still is in operation today. It was sold in 2007 to new owners and the headquarters are now located in Canada. Savage manufactured and sold animal feed as well as veterinary supplies and used these posters as a means of advertising. The front side of the poster is colorful and promotes the use of hog feed in order to help sows to raise more healthy pigs. Testimonials tell of one sow raising 21 pigs or three sows raising 52 pigs. The reverse side contains testimonials from successful users of the feed. The company further says "It keeps sows healthy and extra vigorous so that they will give more and richer milk and insures their raising more pigs, if a practical test does not prove this true we will not charge you a cent for all you feed. Is this fair?" As a way of promoting his 3 Feeds For One Cent, Savage purchased, exhibited, and raced horses. The stable included Creseus, Directum, Arion, Minor Heir,and the legendary Dan Patch for whom he paid $60,000.00 in 1902. In 1906, Dan Patch would break the world record by completing the mile in 1 minute and 55 seconds at the Minnesota State Fair. The record stood for 54 years. In 1909 Dan Patch injured one of his legs. On July 4, 1916, both Dan Patch and M. W. Savage became ill. While Mr. Savage was recovering from surgery, he learned that his favorite race horse had died. Less than a day later, on July 12, Savage also died, his physician stated the cause of death was the shock of losing Dan Patch. M. W. Savage was 57 years old at the time of his death. An excellent display piece.

        The Emperor's Nightingale

      Vienna 1910 - LEFLER (Heinrich): Die Nachtigall [The Emperor’s Nightingale]. (Märchen Kelender by Hans Christian Andersen). Vienna, ca.1910. ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR drawing illustrating a poignant scene from one of Andersen’s famous series of Fairy Tales, rendered as a calendar by Lefler in collaboration with his brother-in-law Joseph Urban. Measures 7 x 9 3/16 inches, mounted on thin card, matted and framed. Heinrich Lefler (1863-1919) worked primarily in Vienna as a member of the Künstlerhaus (1891) and by late 1890s he became one of Austria’s first artists to design posters, then an emerging and highly popular medium. Together with Urban, he designed costumes, interiors, furniture and accessories. In 1900 they co-founded the Hagenbund, an artists’ cooperative that exhibited works by a number of important figures including Oskar Kokoschka and Egon Schiele. From 1903-1910 Lefler taught at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna. This image is considered amongst the most beautiful designs in his oeuvre.
