        While Theodore Roosevelt is away on African safari, William Taft diplomatically contends with two promoters organizing rival receptions to welcome the former President home. One is a New York industrialist, John A. Stewart, who wants to promote Republican unity; the other, Roosevelt's longtime personal secretary William Loeb, who was determined to keep the President away from any official reception. Taft writes only a month after he had fired Gifford Pinchot, a key Roosevelt ally in the Administration, a turning point in the growing feud that would lead Roosevelt to abandon the Republican Party and challenge his former protégé in the "Bull Moose" campaign of 1912

I also saw Mr. Loeb, and I think that everything can be satisfactorily worked out after Mr. Roosevelt has returned to Europe, where he can be fully communicated with." In early January 1910, Taft fired Roosevelt's close friend, Gifford Pinchot, from the U.S. Forest Service for insubordination, after he made allegations that Secretary of the Interior Richard Ballinger was in league with the timber interests.

        A Collection of Jerome Myers Photographs and Letters

      - This collection of original material of Jerome Myers includes two photographs of Jerome Myers, taken by Leo Grubman, one taken in 1910 [when they shared an art gallery and studio] and signed by Leo Grubman, the other taken by Grubman circa 1932. There is a photograph of his wife Ethel (photographer not identified). After his success at the Armory Show in 1911 with the sale of his painting "The Mission Tent" he was able to move into a new studio at the new Carnegie Hall building. There are two warmly personal letters with biographical items of interest plus some artistic representation. The first letter is to his friend Leo Grubman, dated January 21, 1914 and discusses with pride his daughter Virginia's dance recital and his busy schedule. There is a second letter (lacking the first page) of one page signed "Jerome" and circa 1915 of his move to Carmel, New York where he bought 18 acres in a very rustic setting (where he has made a few nice ink sketches along the margins of the letter). A small corner is torn off the edge of the letter (affecting two words but of no great importance) This move was largely made on behalf of his daughter's difficult life in the city. However, his major art themes were rooted in New York and especially the Lower East Side. There is a copy of the 1910 photograph by Grubman at the Smithsonian collection though not signed. There was a traveling exhibit entitled: ASHCAN HUMANISTS; JOHN SLOAN AND JEROME MYERS in 2010. The art of Jerome Myers is found in virtually every major museum in America from the Metropolitan, the Whitney, the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Huntington along with many others.

        The People&#39;s Rights

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1910. First edition, first printing. Paperback. Very good. This is the first edition, first state of this striking, scarce, and fragile early collection of Churchill&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s Rights is a distillation of these nine days of speeches, criticizing the House of Lords (which had rejected the Liberal Government&#39;s budget, thus precipitating the campaign) and championing Free Trade, a graduated income tax, luxury tax, and surtaxes on unearned income.  Churchill&#39;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&#39;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 are common to those copies that endure.  There are two states of this first and only printing.  The first state features an 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 quite respectable condition, about very good minus for the edition with some of the typical aging and wear, but substantially complete nonetheless.  The covers remain attached, the front cover firmly, the rear holding despite a 5.5 inch separation at the rear hinge.  The color, which understandably often dulls, remains fairly bright on both covers, somewhat toned on the spine.  The spine is more complete than many copies we see, with the usual wrinkling from the binding process, but with nearly all of the spine print intact despite modest overall chipping.  Both covers show only minor chipping to the edges, with the illustrated front cover notably complete.  The contents are browned and brittle as usual.  We note no previous ownership marks and light spotting appears confined to the half title.  There are modest triangular losses to the lower corners of the half title and title pages and some small edge chips to the Appendix and Index pages.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A31.2.a, Woods/ICS A16(aa), Langworth p.97

There are twenty cards relating to Australia and the Pacific, including picture cards of Brisbane, Collins Street Melbourne, and Sydney, as well as one of an Aborigine, Captain Cook, the Murray River, Lake Eyre, gold diggers, a kangaroo, platypus, echidna, black swan and a cassowary.

        Carteggio costituito da quattordici lettere autografe firmate del Generale italiano, Intendente Generale nella Campagna italo - turca che partecipò alla guerra italo - austriaca. Comandante della Terza Brigata Alpini dislocata da oriente del Lago di Garda alla Val Lagarina e alla dorsale Carega - Zugna. Era membro della Loggia "Rienzi" di Roma. Le missive, datate tra il 1910 e il 1916 sono indirizzate all'Avvocato Giuseppe Leti e sono di notevole interesse storico. E' unita un'ampia ed interessante memoria manoscritta autografa in cui riassume la propria carriera militare a partire dalla nomina a "Intendente del Corpo di spedizione della Libia" nel 1911. Otto pagine in - 4. Di particolare importanza la lettera del l'11 luglio 1915 che contiene lo sfogo di Gazzola relativamente ad un suo ricorso militare in atto. "Come vede nell'intestazione, ora comando una divisione e aggiungo che sono tenente generale. Constata questo fatto che avvenne dopo un anno di guerra e dopo un numero veramente eccezionale di eliminazioni di generali, e dovrai convenire che ho diritto di essere dirò cosà soddisfatto. Per lo meno non ho fatto male. Ciò premesso, mi premerebbe molto che fosse discusso il mio riscorso al consiglio di Stato, perché sono quasi certo che, accolto il ricorso, io sarei ripristinato nei ruoli dell'esercito attivo. Il ricorso è stato presentato fino dal dicembre 1914, la domanda per la fissazione delle discussioni è stata fatta in giugno o luglio 1915, ma finora non se n'è fatto nulla. Ricorsi militari non se ne vogliono discutere durante la guerra per non dar noia al Ministero. Che idiotismo! Il Ministro se ne frega dei ricorsi ai quali rispondono i rappresentanti legali che pure se ne fregano...". E' accluso un estratto a stampa intitolato Il Generale Imerio Gazzola tratto dalla Nuova Antologia del 1918, autore Vincenzo Riccio di cui compare la dedica autografa firmata al margine superiore. Sei pagine in - 8.

        My African Journey

      Hodder & Stoughton 1910 - This book is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is the 1910 vintage pulp paperback, the so-called "First Cheap Edition." My African Journey is Churchill's travelogue on Britain's possessions in East Africa, written while he was serving as Undersecretary of State for the Colonies. This book is notable, among other things, for being the only one of his many books to contain photographs apparently taken by the author. In the summer of 1907 Churchill left England for five months, making his way after working stops in southern Europe to Africa for "a tour of the east African domains." In early November, Churchill would kill a rhinoceros, the basis of the striking illustration on the front cover of the British first edition of his eventual book. By now a seasoned and financially shrewd author, Churchill arranged to profit doubly from the trip, first by serializing articles in Strand Magazine and then by publishing a book based substantially upon them. In November 1908 Hodder and Stoughton published My African Journey as a book, which was a substantial 10,000 words longer than the serialized articles. In 1910, just two years after the first edition, the publisher issued a so-called "First Cheap Edition" produced in vintage "pulp" style. The text is arranged in a 92-page, two-column format with a few pages of advertisements at either end. This handsome paperback edition features a color illustration on the front cover similar to that of the first edition, with Churchill in pith helmet with binoculars around his neck and a rifle in his hands standing beside a dead white rhinoceros. Some 20,000 copies were produced, but given the fragility of the edition, very few survive today. And those that do are usually in poor condition - befitting a cheap paperback more than a century old. This copy is an exception, far from fine but still impressively well preserved given the edition. Both covers remain attached. The illustrated front cover remains bright and clean with modest edgewear and minor loss to the lower right corner. The rear cover is a bit stained, with losses at the top and bottom edges to a maximum .5 inch depth. The spine shows a .25 inch loss at the head and 1.75 inches at the bottom. All spine lettering remains intact with the exception of the author's last name. We note no vertical creases to the spine, which, in concert with the overall condition, indicates that this copy was not read. The pulp paper contents are browned as inevitable, but show no spotting or previous ownership marks. The only loss is chipping at the lower front corner, penetrating to page 18.

        AMONG THE SHOSHONES.

      Salt Lake City: Skelton Publishing Company, [1910]. - First edition. First issue. 8vo. Presentation inscription by the publisher and signed by him. The signature of the publisher is rare, as the Mormon Church must have applied a great deal of pressure on him to discontinue publication and destroy all copies in house. Original dark green decorated cloth, titles on front cover and spine stamped in black ink, 222 pp., frontis. [photograph of E. N. Wilson], preface, illustrated, portraits, plates. Graff 4702: "A good narrative of Rocky Mountain trapping. Uncle Nick crossed the plains by ox-team in 1850, and thenceforth was trapper, Indian fighter, pony express rider, ox-team freighter, overland stage driver, companion of Kit Carson, and adventurer in Utah and through all the Rocky Mountain country. The first issue was rigidly suppressed." Howes W520: "Blunt, unrestrained narrative of a trapper, Indian fighter, etc., of the Rocky Mountains, from Wyoming and Montana to Idaho and Utah. The 247 page reprint omits the account of how he lost his Mormon fiancee [given on pp. 194 to 200 of original edition]." Flake 9909: "This first edition was suppressed as critical of polygamy." Bauer Sale 515: "When the book was in sheets, [quoting Elijah N. Wilson], ready for binding, objection was made to the passage beginning on page 194. Under pressure I rewrote that part and added 25 pages to the original but had 20 copies bound as originally written. These I kept for the members of my family." Wilson was also critical of the church's handling of the Mountain Meadows massacre, and in general their handling of Indian affairs as he was sympathetic to the Indian point of view. Wilson, Wyoming was named in honor of Elijah N. Wilson. Some light professional restoration to spine ends and corners, else near fine, bright, tight copy, housed in a decorated cloth clamshell case with titles stamped in black on the spine. A rare book with the rare unexpurgated tale. GRAFF 4702. HOWES W520. FLAKE 9909. STREETER SALE 3093. EBERSTADT MODERN NARRATIVES 532. BAUER SALE 515. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THREE LITTLE KITTENS and ( CAT STRUWWELPETER or FIDGETY PHIL ).

      London, Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd., No. 970, circa 1910.FIRST EDITION circa 1910, 6 panel panorama of thick board pages hinged with red cloth, colour printed both sides, a separate story on each side, both illustrated by Wain, brief caption below each picture, all dressed kittens, page size 235 x 180 mm, 9¼ x 7 inches. LACKING COVER BOARD PAGE WITH TITLES (i.e. 5 of 6 panels only). The images for Three Little Kittens were re - used in a painting book issued about the same time by Tuck with the No. 4063. The story on the reverse of the panorama is a cats version of 5 Struwwelpeter stories: Fidgety Philip on the floor under the table cloth and the tea things; the three kittens inked by Agrippa cat for mocking the Blackamoor; John who never looked where he was going and almost drowned in a stream; a version of the Huntsman where a hare with a rifle shoots at 2 cats, 1 sitting on the well; finally, a kitten disobeys his mother and sucks his thumb but with no nasty consequences. A Louis Wain cat version of Struwwelpeter was published by Tuck circa 1905 entitled Fidgety Phil and Other Tales, in the Little Pets series, with 16 pages including covers and with verses by Norman Gale. Hinges slightly worn with some small splits, a few very minor marks to some pages and some hinges, small closed tear to surface paper at edge of 1 image (we have found our mittens), neatly repaired with no loss, barely visible. A good defective copy of a rare book (lacking 1 board page). Neither the Three Little Kitten Painting Book nor our Panorama, nor Fidgety Phil are listed in the bibliography in the reissue of the Dale book on Wain. The painting book is not uncommon but we could not find a record of our panorama. Fidgety Phil is listed in Baumgartner Volume 1, page 24, No.29 and 1 copy is recorded in Liverpool University Library and 1 in Toronto Public Library but not in the Osborne catalogue.
