        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'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'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 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

        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.

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.

        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.

        [The equation of state for gases and liquids.] Autograph manuscript in German of his Nobel Lecture

      , 1910. 1910. <p>Autograph Manuscript of van der Waals&#39;s Nobel Lecture</p><p>Waals, Johannes Diderik van der (1837-1923). [The equation of state for gases and liquids.] Autograph manuscript in German, written in ink with ink and pencil emendations; marked for use as printer&#39;s copy. 24ff. 210 x 171 mm. Light toning, small marginal dampstain on last leaf, left margins a bit frayed minimally affecting text, but very good. </p><p>Original Manuscript of van der Waals&#39;s Nobel lecture, delivered in December 1910. ). Holograph manuscripts of Nobel lectures are very rare, and this is an exceptionally early example from a major figure in the history of modern physics. </p><p>Van der Waals was awarded the Nobel Prize for physics that year for his work on the equation of state of gases and liquids, in particular for the "van der Waals equation" approximating the behavior of real fluids, introduced in his classic 1873 dissertation on the continuity of gaseous and liquid states.</p><p>Van der Waals&#39; idea of continuity was that there is no essential difference between gaseous and liquid states of matter, although one must consider other factors in addition to motion of the molecules in the determination of pressure. The important factors are the attraction between particles and their proper volume. . . . From these considerations van der Waals arrived at the equation</p> <p>p + a/v2 ) (v-b) = RT</p> <p>where a expresses the mutual attraction of the molecules, and b is their volume. . . . Other experimenters have suggested different models and equations of state, but van der Walls&#39;s model is probably the most useful because it emphasizes the essential features of molecules that determine liquidity, without introducing too many &#39;realistic&#39; complications. . . . An important practical application of the theory is the prediction of conditions necessary for the liquefaction of a gas; this was an important guide in the liquefaction of the &#39;permanent&#39; gases" (Weber, Pioneers of Science, p. 41; see also p. 40). </p><p>In his Nobel lecture van der Waals summarized his life&#39;s work on equation of state theory, describing how he had come to formulate the van der Waals equation and the equation&#39;s experimental corroboration by Sydney Young, an event that had given van der Waals "great joy." "The laureate went on to detail his most recent work, which he termed &#39;pseudo association&#39; (the &#39;van der Waals force&#39;) to distinguish it from chemical bonding. The only way to achieve agreement between the equation of state and laboratory data, he maintained, was to postulate the existence of large complexes of molecules, especially in liquids. . . . In the conclusion to his address, van der Waals said, &#39;In all my studies I was quite convinced of the real existence of molecules . . . I never regarded them as a figment of my imagination, nor even as mere centers of force effects.&#39; He noted that &#39;the real existence of molecules is universally assumed by physicists,&#39; and that his theory &#39;may have been a contributing factor" (Magill, The Nobel Prize Winners: Physics, pp. 150-51.</p>

        The People&#39;s Rights

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1910. 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

        The Lilac Fairy Book

      London, New York, Bombay and Calcutta: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1910. London, New York, Bombay and Calcutta: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1910. With 6 coloured plates and numerous illustrations by H. J. Ford. Octavo. Original lilac cloth, titles and pictorial decoration to spine and front board, all edges gilt. Colour frontispiece, vignette engraved title page, 5 colour plates, 20 engraved plates, illustrations throughout. Cloth faded as almost always, spine more so with a little tanning, some partial toning to end leaves but internally very fresh, a nice copy, sound, clean and in very good condition. First edition, first impression, of the final title in Lang&#39;s Fairy Book series. Lang takes the opportunity in this final preface to disavow once again his authorship of these fairytales (they were almost entirely translated from early sources by Mrs. Lang), and indeed to say "Nobody can write a new fairy tale...the thing is impossible... the three hundred and sixty-five authors who try to write new fairy tales are very tiresome. They always begin with a little boy or girl who goes out and meets the fairies of polyanthuses and gardenias and apple blossoms... These fairies try to be funny, and fail; or they try to preach, and succeed. Real fairies never preach or talk slang. At the end, the little boy or girl wakes up and finds that he has been dreaming. Such are the new fairy stories. May we be preserved from all the sort of them! Our stories are almost all old, some from Ireland, before that island was as celebrated for her wrongs as for her verdure; some from Asia, made, I dare say, before the Aryan invasion; some from Moydart, Knoydart, Morar and Ardnamurchan, where the sea streams run like great clear rivers and the saw-edged hills are blue, and men remember Prince Charlie. Some are from Portugal, where the golden fruits grow in the Garden of the Hesperides; and some are from wild Wales, and were told ar Arthur&#39;s Court; and other come from the firesides of the kinsmen of the Welsh, the Bretons..."

        GROUP OF 5 SIGNED PHOTOGRAPHS OF SCENES IN SPAIN with an Annotated Photograph of a Friend and a Photograph of Reed with Louise Bryant

      First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good and unique. The 5 scenic photographs are all 2-3/4" x 4-1/2" mounted on index cards and are all annotated by Reed and SIGNED by him on the versos of the index cards as "J. S. Reed/42 Wash. Sq. N.Y. 1. "From my window looking out into the square behind the hotel at Tolosa." 2. "Pyrenees Running out to sea San Sebastian." 3. Royal Box. The Annual Royal Bull-Fight San Sebastian." 4. "Witch-chase in Burgos." 5. "Hernani, a typical Basque village, dominated by its big bullying Church." The photograph of a gentleman, slightly smaller in size, is annotated by Reed in pencil on the verso identifying the man as Dr. Dobay at the Ritz Hotel. The photograph of Reed and his wife Bryant is slightly larger and depicts them standing and hugging on a porch, likely in Provincetown, with no writing on the verso. The European photographs were most likely taken by Reed during the summer of 1910 when he traveled to Europe following his graduation from Harvard. Perhaps the best known left-wing American journalist of the twentieth century; Reed was portrayed by Warren Beatty in the film REDS, nominated for twelve Academy Awards and winner of three, which centered on Reed&#39;s life, notably his romance with Louise Bryant, played by Diane Keaton, and his early death at 33 in Moscow. Reed&#39;s best known book, TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD, is Reed&#39;s firsthand account of the October Revolution in Russia in 1917.

        A photographically illustrated typescript describing and depicting the operations of the Copper Creek Mining Company in Southeastern Arizona]

      - [Copper Creek, Arizona: [circa 1910-1915]. Small 8vo. (approximately 7 x 4 inches). 39 gelatin silver print photographs (approximately 3 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches each), includes a couple duplicate images. The typescript 28pp, recto only. [With:] A blueprint assay map of the Old Reliable Mine. Period sheep three-ring binder. Early industrial photographs of mining operations in Arizona. The photographs show mine and town buildings, machinery, settlers, and views from the mountains of the settlement of Copper Creek in Pinal County, Arizona. Copper Creek, its mines and town are located in the Galiuro mountains in the South East corner of Pinal County near Arivaipa Valley. This area produced silver as early as 1863, when ore was hauled to Yuma and shipped to Wales for reduction. Despite the relatively rich ore, factors including the remoteness of the area, the cost of transporting the ore, and the threat of Indians combined to limit mining activity in Copper Creek. But at the turn of the century, as interest in extending railroads to other mines and towns in eastern Pinal County brought the potential of carrying ore by rail, interest in Copper Creek rose once again. The Copper Creek Mining Company was organized in 1903, and in its first two years of operation yielded 49,000 pounds of copper. A narrow gauge railroad was constructed in 1912, and one of the images depicts the small locomotive being hauled overland by a team of horses. The Company went bankrupt in 1914. The present notes accompanying the photographs are of a promotional nature, envisioning the future of the settlement, perhaps as a way of attracting investors. It would seem likely that the photographs and typescript were produced for some official Company purpose. An early example of American industrial vernacular photography, of the sort which would have profound influence on a host of artists and photographers of the New Objectivity Movement.
