        The Sleeping Beauty and other fairy tales From the Old French

      London: Hodder & Stoughton , 1910 Quarto. (xviii), 128, (3)pp., + 30 plates. First trade edition. Illustrated with thirty tipped-in color plates protected by tissue guards and numerous black & white head- and tail-pieces, all designed by Edmund Dulac to have the feel of 18th-century France, when the fairy tales were "at the acme of [their] vogue]" (p. [xi]). Fine in publisher's gilt-decorated red-brown cloth to a design by Dulac, with very slight wear to extremities, as expected - a small amount of foxing to text block edges and end papers. All color plates are clean with no tears, with tissue guards intact. A notice of an Edmund Dulac Exhibition at Leicester Galleries, London from November19th until Christmas, 1910, is laid in. ***This is a large, heavy book so additional shipping charges may apply so please feel free to request quotes and options.

        [Album]: William Andrew Mauney Family of Kings Mountain, North Carolina

      (Kings Mountain, North Carolina). [circa 1910-1967]. A collection of typescript memoirs, letters, photographs, and ephemera documenting the life and family of William Andrew Mauney, a distinguished Civil War veteran and founding father of the town of Kings Mountain, North Carolina. Compiled by Bonnie Summers, Mauney's daughter from his second marriage to Candace Miller, the album roughly divides into three sections of material relating to William and Candace Mauney, and the town of Kings Mountain respectively.Included in this archive is Candace Mauney's beautifully written account of her life on the 314-acre family farm in Catawba County, North Carolina, and a typescript copy of William Mauney's Civil War journal that describes his service as Commissary Sergeant in Company B of the 28th North Carolina Regiment. He enlisted in August 1861 (at age 20), was taken prisoner at the Battle of Hanover Court House, Virginia (May 1862), and was returned to his regiment in July as part of a prisoner exchange. Subsequent decisive battles at Harper's Ferry, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg are vividly recounted, along with the Regiment's frequent skirmishes, continuous movements, and military engagements throughout the Siege of Petersburg.After the war Mauney worked as a farmer and merchant. He co-founded the town of Kings Mountain in 1873 and served as its first mayor and first postmaster, and later served as state senator. He also founded St. Matthew's Evangelical Lutheran Church, and was President of the Kings Mountain Cotton Manufacturing Company.The album also contains tributes written upon Mauney's death in 1929, two portrait photographs of William and Candace, and various biographical and historical sketches written by grandchildren and friends from Kings Mountain. Housed in a three-ring leather binder with a 9" x 12" envelope containing additional material laid-in, overall very good with scattered spotting to the inside covers. A compelling memorial of this important North Carolina family. A detailed list of the entire archive is available upon request. .

        The Letter That Launched Woodrow Wilson's Meteoric Political Career

      The Letter That Launched Woodrow Wilson's Meteoric Political Career. Cited in his biography, this letter helped to secure him the gubernatorial nomination Wilson was a lifelong academic and college president. During the first decade of the 20th century, he made the newspapers for his notable reforms at Princeton University and for trying (unsuccessfully) to break up its elite eating clubs. During his years as Princeton president, he had grown increasingly progressive and had come to believe that politics was good and that government could be a constructive and beneficial force. This was an era when reform was in the air, and independent men not beholden to party bosses or special interests were enormously popular, so Wilson's activities at Princeton led to his name being mentioned as a gubernatorial prospect in New Jersey in 1910. The Democratic Party could not help but note Wilson's popularity and grew interested in him. However, the Democrats were as afraid of Wilson's sidestepping the party or trying to smash its organization as they were impressed by his popularity. For his part, by mid-1910, Wilson was ready to leave Princeton. In June of that year, Jim Smith, the powerful Democratic boss of Essex County, took a trip westward and spoke with Democratic governors along the way. He was surprised to find that they knew of Wilson and shocked that they were actually mentioning him as a potential presidential candidate. The New Jersey Democratic Party organization was in a quandry; it clearly had a candidate who could get votes, but would he destroy the machine if nominated? It turned to a friend for help in finding out. When Smith reached Chicago, he met with that city's boss, Roger Sullivan, and another powerful politico, John M. Harlan. Harlan, son of one U.S. Supreme Court Justice and father of another, was an old friend of Wilson from the days they were at Princeton together. According to August Heckscher in his biography Woodrow Wilson, when Smith stated his doubts about Wilson's intentions, Harlan offered to act as an intermediary. He wrote his friend Wilson and asked if he were elected governor, would he set about "fighting and breaking down the existing Democratic organization and replacing it with one of his own?" Heckscher goes on to quote this letter, stating that Wilson's response reassured the party organization, leading to his nomination for governor a few months later. Typed Letter Signed on Princeton University letterhead, June 23, 1910, to John M. Harlan, accommodating the Democratic Party while at the same time staking out a completely independent position and leaving himself free to act. "I owe you an apology for not having replied sooner to yours of June 11th. The Commencement season began, as you know, on June 10th, and ever since it began I have been in the throes of the busiest part of the season. I need not say that I read your letter with the greatest interest. I would be perfectly willing to assure Mr. Smith that I would not, if elected Governor, set about'fighting and breaking down the existing Democratic organization and replacing it with one of my own.' The last thing I should think of would be building up a machine of my own. So long as the existing Democratic organization was willing to work with thorough heartiness for such policies as would re-establish the reputation of the State and the credit of the Democratic party in serving the State, I should deem myself inexcusable for antagonizing it, so long as I was left absolutely free in the matter of measures and men. I have been so extremely busy and business has brought me so near the eve of my vacation, that I do not see how it would be quite possible for me to arrange to lunch with Mr. Hurley and Mr. Smith in New York, but I should be very pleased to do so if it should turn out to be possible. My address will be care of Miss Florence Griswold, Lyme, Conn. I deeply appreciate your kindness in keeping these political matters in mind. You are certainly most generous and I appreciate your interest and friendship very warmly indeed. It seems to me as if the developments in Princeton make it pretty certain that my duty lies here in the immediate future and not in the political field, but I am as eager as ever to do anything that is possible, consistent with my other obligations, to help forward the rehabilitation of the great party in which I have always believed." Here, Wilson does agree to work through the party organization but qualifies it by stating that the organization must "reestablish" its credit (in other words credibility, by becoming more honest and less boss-controlled) and leave him free "as to measures and men" (which amounts to control of appointments and legislation). This letter led to Wilson's election as governor in November 1910, and less than three years after this letter launched his political career, a college president took the oath of office as president of the United States, a startling rise to power.

        A Collection of Books Inscribed to Rachel MacKenzie

      First. A collection of 11 Singer books, nearly all Inscribed to The New Yorker editor Rachel MacKenzie. Rachel MacKenzie (1910-1980) replaced Katherine White as the fiction editor at The New Yorker on the recommendation of May Sarton. During her tenure at the magazine, MacKenzie was noted for her nurturing and editing of, among others, Sarton, Muriel Spark, Philip Roth, and especially Isaac Bashevis Singer. In Master of Dreams: A Memoir of Isaac Bashevis Singer, Singer's assistant of 12 years and later editor, Dvorah Telushkin, remembers watching MacKenzie work with Singer by reading each story out loud to him, line by line, and how she would sometimes request stronger endings to his stories. At MacKenzie's memorial in 1980, Singer revealed that, "Whenever I write something, my first question is, would Rachel have liked it? What faults and defects would she have found in it? To many of her writers, she will remain the measure of what is good and wrong in all their literary endeavors." Singer later dedicated a special edition of his collected stories to MacKenzie, calling her "a literary leader in the best sense of the word." The eleven books are from 1955-1978 and range from fine to very good condition. All but one are first editions and American printings. Each is lovingly Inscribed to MacKenzie by Singer, except one is Inscribed by Singer to MacKenzie's niece. In addition to the books, a brief Typed Letter Signed from Singer's literary agent Robert Lescher to MacKenzie is included. The collection includes: Satan in Goray, Gimpel the Fool and Other Stories, In My Father's Court, Zlateh The Goat and Other Stories, Short Fridays and Other Stories, When Shlemiel Went to Warsaw & Other Stories, A Friend of Kafka, The Fools of Chelm and Their History, Passions and Other Stories, Shosha, and A Young Man in Search of Love. Further details available upon request. .
