        MILITARY SERVICE WITH THE 10TH UNITED STATES CALVALRY [Buffalo Soldiers],

      as recorded in a collection of nearly 700 photographs and real-photo postcards, 1911-1915, reflecting life in a peacetime assignment in Vermont, 1911-1913, and in the southwest battle zone guarding the Mexico-United States border in Arizona during the early years of the Mexican Revolution, 1913-1916, part of a larger collection of more than 1250 photographs documenting the military career of Freeborn P. Holcomb. The archive of more than 1250 photographs, virtually all with typed or manuscript captions, was assembled, and partly taken, by Freeborn P. Holcomb, a Troop commander in the 10th Cavalry, 1911-1916; approximately 700 were made during the six-year period he served with that unit. There are photographs in this collection dated during the period, 1889-1928, but, in addition to the bulk from the years of Holcomb's service with the 10th Cavalry in Vermont and Arizona, another 300 cover the period he spent in Ada, Ohio, while completing a master's degree and supervising a National Guard unit at Ohio Northern University, 1908-1911, with the balance of something over 250 images devoted to family and school photographs, 1889-1897 (10 images), Holcomb's service in Matanzas Cuba, 1900 (25), his service in the Philippines, ca. 1903-1907 and 1917-1919 (90), and his post-Arizona service in Guam, Camp Lee, Virginia, Fort Robinson, Nebraska, and Fort Lewis, Washington, and family life, 1916-1929 (150). Cuba, Philippines, Ohio, Vermont, Arizona, and other places, 1889-1928. Freeborn P. Holcomb (1873-1929), a native of Plattsburgh, New York, received his military training at the Michigan Military Academy (where one of his classmates was Edgar Rice Burroughs, pictured here, with Holcomb, in a group photo of four "Captains"), 1892-1896, immediately enlisting in service with the 2nd U.S. Cavalry upon graduation and working his way through the ranks to an appointment as second lieutenant in 1899, following service in the Spanish-American War. Subsequent to occupation duty in Mantanzas, Cuba, after the war, Holcomb travelled with the 2nd, first to Fort Logan, Colorado (1901-1903), then on the Philippines (1903-1907?) where he was promoted to first lieutenant in 1904 and transferred to the 14th Cavalry. In 1908 he began a master's program at Northern Ohio University where he was also involved in training cadets and possibly working with the football team (photos of the teams included here), finishing in 1911 (included here is a photograph of Holcomb at a N.O.U. gathering with President Taft and a White House invitation for Holcomb and his wife to the event). Having been promoted to captain in 1909, his next assignment was the command of a troop in the 10th U.S. Cavalry, an African-American unit on garrison duty at Fort Ethan Allen, Near Burlington, Vermont (1911-1913). He served with that regiment for six years (1911-1916), a period that included patrolling the southwestern border with Mexico during the early years of that country's revolution (1913-1916): "the officers and the enlisted men of the 10th Cavalry then felt the common touch of comradeship and mutual helpfulness, which rarely existed a few years later ... up to the time the regiment went into Mexico with Gen. John J. Pershing in 1916, the 10th Cavalry was like one large family. However the officers were of a different race they possessed a devotion for the black trooper rarely ever attained except through long contact under various conditions. We had served in the Philippines together, came around the world on the same transport, our children had attended the same school in Vermont and the wife of one of our officers had taught Sabbath school. The Tenth Cavalry was just like a large family -- men were loyal and devoted to their officers. They would die for them and by them" (1st Sgt. Vance Marchbanks "Forty Years in the Army," typescript at the Fort Huachuca Museum, ca. 1940). Included are many dramatic photographs of military activity along the border, especially in the town of Naco, Arizona, where Holcomb's troop was stationed. Another assignment in the Pacific (beginning with a 30-photo record of a March, 1916, automobile trip from Fort Huachuca to San Francisco), with stops at Guam and the Philippines (1916-1917), a transfer to the Quartermaster Corps, promotions through the field officer ranks to colonel, and service at Camp Lee, Virginia (1917-1918), and tours at several western army posts closed out his career in the army (1919-1929). The photographs in this collection document Holcomb's path of service and the growth of his family during this long period. This large archive of photographs documents a substantive military career, enhanced by historical images of the 10th United States Cavalry [Buffalo Soldiers], on peacetime duty amidst a mostly white civilian population and in service along the United States-Mexican border during a volatile period in the two countries' relationship, a major period of transition for the American military and the cavalry service in particular. Nearly all images are clean and distinct. Almost all of the photographs are mounted, from one to eleven of them per side, on both sides of stiff black leaves, once in an album but now loose, with the individual leaves protected in plastic sleeves (the covers for the album are also present). (#6452) Formed at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas in 1866, the 10th United States Cavalry was made up of African-American enlisted men commanded by white officers, its primary duty patrolling the western frontier. In that capacity the unit participated in military action against various Native American tribes for three decades, fighting Cheyennes, Arapahos, and Comanches in Kansas and the Indian Territory in the 1860s and Apaches in Texas and Arizona in the 1870s and 1880s. After service in the Dakotas in the 1890s, the 10th Cavalry performed conspicuous service in Cuba during the Spanish-American War, spearheading the famous battle for San Juan Hill, before sailing for the Philippines to engage in the post-war insurrection there. Following decades of fighting, the regiment was given awarded a period of garrison duty, first in the northwest before a transfer to Fort Ethan Allen near Burlington, Vermont. Joining the unit there was the new troop commander Captain Freeborn P. Holcomb, the compiler of the photograph collection offered here. Aside from the "demographic shock" of an influx of African-American soldiers into the whitest state in the Union, the three-year tour was relatively uneventful: the history of the 10th Cavalry published in 1921 contains page after page of results from regimental sporting activities and not much else for those years. Things changed quickly with the unit's next assignment, a return to Arizona for patrol along the border with Mexico as revolution was breaking out in that country. Though Pershing's Punitive Expedition into Mexico in 1916-1917 ("Chasing Pancho Villa") has been well documented, the period immediately preceding that campaign, involving the conflict between rebels and federals in northeastern Mexico (1914-1916), occaionally spilling over into the United States, has received less attention. During this time Pancho Villa and his rebels battled government forces in Mexico, under a succession of generals from Diaz to Modero to Huerta to Carranza. The soldiers of the 10th Cavalry stationed at Fort Huachuca were charged with protecting the border between the United States and Mexico, but were under orders not to provoke or return fire. Often the running bttles between the Mexican factions resulted in American casualties, and the temptation to retaliate was strong. In the town of Naco, the border demarcation ran down the middle of the main street. "The town of Naco suffered more or less from the artillery fire of the besiegers, several houses being pierced by shells, and buildings near the 'line' still bear the marks of many stray bullets. Great difficulty was had in holding back the crowds of visitors from Bisbee and Douglas who flocked to see the 'battles,' in automobiles, wagons, and on horseback. The provocation to retaliate on the Mexicans for losses sustained while on duty which forbade them to return the fire, was at times almost overpowering. Our men could draw small comfort from the delightful apologies submitted to our commanding officers for the killing and wounding of their comrades, always accompanied by promises that no more shooting would occur. Finally the 'siege' drew to a close, and the troops were given a rest and a chance to see what Huachuca looked like. Some of the men, after ten months' service on the border, had not yet seen their home station" (Edward Glass "History of the Tenth Cavalry, 1866-1921"). Many of Holcomb's photos in this archive fill in details of the U.S. involvement in this stage of the Mexican Revolution, with more than 450 images covering Holcomb's service during these three years, 250 involving military scenes, more than 75 of those picturing African-American troops from the tenth. Subjects include (1) photos, taken by Co. "E" Engineers, from action at Vera Cruz in 1913, showing action near the Naval Academy where the heaviest fighting took place; (2) photos of the Holcomb house in Naco which was hit by 22 bullets and a three inch shell in 1914; (3) photos of the results of American fire at Nogales, Arizona, in 1915, including images of bodies in a pile, before and after rudimentary cremation (four of these pictures are copyrighted postcards by Robert Runyon, a commercial photographer living and working on the Mexican border at this time); (4) photos of the officers' quarters and of troops at drill at Fort Huachuca and of a wagon supply train, cavalry tents, troopers with horses under their care, and military camps at Douglas, Arizona, all in 1915; and (5) photos taken during action at Naco in 1914 and 1915, including tent encampments, a 4.7 gun and shells, a group photo of Troop B, 10th Cavalry (Holcomb's command), wounded Mexican soldiers, Mexican Red Cross nurses, headquarters' encampment, a barricade of officers' tents, Yaqui trenches, stables, a pool room, troops in the field, a hay bale barricade, etc. A number of the African-American troopers are identified by name, including saddler George Hudnell who later died from wounds incurred in Pershing's campaign against Pancho Villa. Though Holcomb was on his way to Guam by March, 1916, included in the archive are two printed notices regarding the prosecution of the Punitive Expedition: (1) a printed handbill (7 x 4 3/4 inches) printed on the 9th Cavalry Press "In Memoriam, Officers and Men of the Tenth Cavalry, who died at Carrizal Mexico, Sunday, Post Hall, Sept. 24, 1918," including information on the June 21, 1916, death of Capt. Charles T. Boyd, "commanding a troop of the famous Negro regiment, the 10th Cavalry"; and (2) "General Orders No. 1" (7 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches), July 1, 1916, Colonia Dublan, Mexico, describing the battle deaths of Boyd and Lt. Henry Adair and giving biographical details for each, signed in type at the end by Capt. S.M. Rutherford, Adj. of the 10th Cavalry (neither located on OCLC). For the entire archive, more than 550 of the photographs involve military matters of some sort and more than 125 picture African-American troopers from the 10th Cavalry.

        Eigenh. Musikzitat mit U.

      Wien, 1911. - 1 S. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 8vo. 2 Notenzeilen aus "ballo in maschera" von Verdi. - Der aus Rom gebürtige Baritonsänger war u. a. am Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, am Teatro Pedro II. in Rio de Janeiro, am Teatro São José in São Paulo und an der Covent Garden Opera in London zu hören. "1892 wirkte er bei der Uraufführung der Oper ‚I Rantzau' von Pietro Mascagni mit. Jules Massenet schrieb für Battistini die Titelpartie seiner Oper ‚Werther' für Bariton um. Auch Giuseppe Verdi schätzte den Sänger sehr. Es kam jedoch zu einer Mißstimmung zwischen den beiden Künstlern, als Battistini die Hauptrolle in Verdis ‚Falstaff' ablehnte. Richard Wagner erklärte Battistinis Interpretation der Arie ‚O du mein holder Abendstern' aus der Oper ‚Tannhäuser' zu seiner Lieblingsversion. Battistini gilt als eine der herausragenden Sängerpersönlichkeiten seiner Zeit" (Wikipedia). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Typed Letter Signed, large 4to, [Sonoma, California} Dec. 22, 1910

      To "Comrade Tuck," London references his writings commenting on the fact that he hadn't lectured in a while and suggesting he organize a talk around his answer to Kipling's attack on Socialism. In part, "Do you remember Kipling's attack in parable upon Socialism? The Bee-Hive parable?... I have written a reply to it, in the form of a parable. It has been refused by practically every magazine... soon to be published by HAMPTON'S MAGAZINE... entitled THE STRENGTH OF THE STRONG." "The Strength of the Strong" was published in "Hampton's Magazine," Volume 26, March 1911 and later published in book form by Macmillan in 1914. Kipling's attack on socialism, in the form of a political parable about bees, was first published in "Collier's Weekly" in the United Stated on November 28,1908, under the title, "The Mother Hive," and in the United Kingdom as the "Adventures of Melissa," for "Windsor Magazine," December 1908. In his parable, Kipling argued for the need to recognize socialism as an attack against the future of the British Empire and defend against such false progressive ideas. Slightly faded with margin tear to one fold at top not affecting text. Jack London was a socialist and member of the radical literary group 'The Crowd' in San Francisco, supporting worker's rights and unionization. He became a socialist in 1894 and wove his political perspective into his writings and lectures. Our letter to H.C. Tuck gives evidence to London's political orientation. Referred to here as "Comrade Tuck," Tuck was a socialist leader, editor, and State Secretary of the Socialist Party of California. In 1910-11, Tuck was arrested for libel, having printed some apparently libelous material in various newspaper articles. In 1910, the year he wrote our letter to Tuck, London's "Burning Daylight," as well as "Revolution and Other Essays," "Lost Face," and "Theft: A Play in Four Acts" were all published. That same year saw the birth of his daughter and her untimely death just 36 hours later. It was also in 1910 that London purchased the Kohler & Frohling ranch. I.

        CIVIC ART. Studies In Town Planning, Parks, Boulevards and Open Spaces.

      London: B.T. Batsford: , 1911. London: B.T. Batsford 1911. First edition. Mawson's enormous success as a landscape architect led him to town planning projects in Bolton, Southport, Athens, Calgary and Vancouver. He served as president of the Town Planning Institute and became one of Britain's foremost early town planners. His CIVIC ART provided an impressive text book on his ideas for town planning, similar in character to the later editions of his better known ART AND CRAFT OF GARDEN MAKING, the fourth edition of which appeared in the following year and which greatly resembled CIVIC ART in format and style of illustration. Mawson stressed the need for a deliberate system of aesthetics for town planning and relied heavily on examples from his own practice to illustrate his theories. The volume is divided into four parts: the theory of Civic Art; the practice of Civic Art; examples of town planning; and examples of public parks and town gardens. Appendices concerning trees and shrubs are also included. Folio (35.6 x 26.5 cm); (vi) + 376 pp. with color frontispiece and one color plate, decorative chapter titles, numerous reproductions of plans, engravings, drawings, and photographs. Original cloth gilt ruled and lettered on upper cover and spine, extremities very gently worn, slight separation of cloth along 2 inches of spine edge, else a very good copy.

        JOHN LA FARGE: A Memoir and a Study

      1911. LA FARGE, John. John La Farge: A Memoir and a Study. By Royal Cortissoz. [xiv], 268, [2] pp. Illustrated throughout with 15 plates, plus an additional 50 portraits and 10 holograph letters. 4to., 235 x 146 mm, bound in contemporary full blue morocco, gilt-ruled covers and spine by Macdonald. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1911. |~||~||~||~||~||~| A fine extra-illustrated copy of the classic life of this multi-faceted American nineteenth-century artist. The biography was written by the influential art historian and critic Royal Cortissoz (1869-1948). John La Farge (1835-1910) was a painter, muralist, book illustrator, interior decorator, writer and stained glass maker. Today, it is probably for his work in stained glass that he is best remembered. La Farge was an early pioneer in the study of Japanese art. He traveled to the South Seas in the company of Henry Adams during the 1890s. On his return he was hired as an instructor with the Metropolitan Museum of Art Schools and later elected President of the National Society of Mural Painters from 1899 to 1904. Erudite in both literature and art and speaking over seven languages, La Farge exerted a wide-spread influence in the artistic and cultural circles of Boston and New York. His writings include: The American Art of Glass (a pamphlet); Considerations on Painting (New York, 1895); An Artist's Letters from Japan (New York, 1897); The Great Masters (New York); Hokusai: a talk about Japanese painting (New York, 1897); The Higher Life in Art (New York, 1908); The Gospel Story in Art (New York, 1913). This copy has been grangerized with an additional 50 plates tipped in, as well as 10 autographs, including 4 lengthy letters from La Farge and autographed letters signed by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, William C. Whitney (a potential patron) and one from Elihu Vedder with four pencil drawings on the verso. Spine slightly darkened, otherwise a fine copy.

        Carnet de Charles Baudelaire

      Paris: J. Chevrel,, 1911. Publié avec une introduction et des notes Par M. Féli Gautier et orné d'un dessin inédit de Baudelaire. Tall octavo. Contemporary green cloth-backed marbled boards, brown morocco label to spine, floral tool to spine gilt, edges untrimmed. Frontispiece and 28 facsimile illustrations of Baudelaire's notes. Pages ruled in red. Partly unopened. Extremities slightly rubbed, corners a touch worn, minor chips to label. An excellent copy. First edition, one of 100 copies printed. This copy unnumbered but inscribed on the limitation page by the publisher to the Parisian bookseller and publisher Edouard Champion (1882?-1938): "A Monsieur Edouard Champion en remerciement de son amabilité, J. Chevrel." With two loosely inserted autograph letters written by the author of the introduction, Féli Gautier, to Champion. Féli Gautier was the author of a biography of Baudelaire (1903), as well as several titles on the poet, including Vie Amoureuse de Charles Baudelaire (Mercure de France, 1903). His work as a publisher greatly contributed to making most of Baudelaire's writings (including the letters, diaries and posthumous works) available by the beginning of the twentieth century. Gautier's first letter is a letter of introduction for Pierre Rapine, brother of Les Feuillets littéraires founder Joseph Rapine, asking if Champion could give Rapine some advice on setting up a bookshop. In the second letter, a polite reminder for a missed payment written on Mercure de France headed paper, Gautier writes of his work on a definitive title on Baudelaire to be published by Mercure de France, as a trade edition and as a limited edition on Vélin d'Arches. Gautier also promises to give Champion a copy of the edition of Les Fleurs du Mal, which he was in the process of having published with G. Crès. A lovely copy of a scarce title with letters offering an interesting insight into the work of an early twentieth-century publisher of Baudelaire.

        Shakespeare Memorial Ball in Support of the Shakespeare Memorial Fund

      London: Frederick Warne & Co., 1911. Title: Souvenir of the Shakespeare Ball Held at the Albert Hall June 20, 1911, in Support of the Shakespeare Memorial Fund. London, [1912]. Published by Frederick Warne & Co., Printed by Hudson & Kearns, Ltd. to commemorate the Shakespeare Ball Held at the Royal Albert Hall 20 June 1911. Crown Folio. 49 pages, [1], plus 51 plates with protective tissue guards, 18 of which are in colour, numerous in-text illustrations. Publisher's original vellum binding, with gilt title and intricate tooling to front, cotton ribbon woven through vellum for a string-tie closure, satin endpapers, rough-cut edges, top edges gilt. Volume measures approximately 17 x 11.5 inches (43 x 29 cm). Lacking satin ties, otherwise in Very Good and original condition, a beautiful highly illustrated volume. An uncommon and pleasing tribute, profusely and eloquantly illustrated, this work commemorates a most distinguished gala which celebrated of the world's most famous playwright and actor, William Shakespeare. Serendipitously, it also serves as a pictorial album illustrating a common gathering of numerous aristocrats, peers, and royals from afar, and many being from Prussian or German monarchies. The ball was organised by a committee chaired by Mrs. George Cornwallis-West (later Sir Winston Churchill's sister-in-law, and known as Lady Randolph Spencer Churchill), whom also edited this commemorative book. Oddly, England was one of only a scant few European countries without a national theatre at the time. Successful in drawing the attention and participation of the influential and wealthy, the event was a fundraiser for a new theatre, a National Theatre, to be erected in London and the tercentenary of Shakespeare's death, 23 April in 1916. Excerpt from the Epilogue, by I. Gollancz, Honorary Secretary, Shakespeare Memorial Committee, "... The Shakespeare Ball, graced by the stately presence of the world's regality, by the noblest and fairest of English kin 'beyond the seas' rightly symbolises the universal homage to Shakespeare... those who have worked will see the consummation of their efforts in the foundation of the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, to serve the purpose of a great National Theatre, and to advance the interests of Drama..." With an impressive guest list consisting of European nobles and upper-class elites, 3000 guests dressed in Elizabethan costume or as characters from Shakespeare's plays, and, the fancy dress ball is still, over a century later, remembered as an extraordinary event unparalleled in London's dramatic societies, and described as "the most spectacular event ever held at the Hall". The volume contains a four-page list of all participants, as well as two pages naming the Royal guests who travelled from as far as Russia, Siam, Japan, Egypt, America. The box ticket holders list is also replete with historically significant names in the realm of colonialism, politics and artistic circles. The text includes contributions by George Bernard Shaw, Gilbert Keith (G.K.) Chesterton, Anthony Hope, Joseph William Comyns Carr, (Charles) Lewis Hind, the 2nd Earl of Lytton, and (Henry) Hamilton Fyfe. Especially fascinating are the lithograph plates of hand drawn sketches and watercolours and the photogravures of snapshots made on location during the ball. These illustrations feature society notables in costume, authentically dressed as characters from the plays of William Shakespeare, and as persons from the court of Queen Elizabeth in 1598, most of the latter being a direct descendant, or a relation of the historical person they dressed as. Some of the lithographed drawings feature: The Countess of Lytton as Joan of Arc Lady Arlington as Cleopatra Mrs. Charles Hunter who arranged the King Lear quadrille dance Lady Baring as Lady Macduff Lord Buckhurst as Page to Queen Elizabeth Viscountess Ridley as Rosalind Lady Maud Warrender as Hippolta Mrs. St. John Lambert as Juliet Some of the photogravures include: Countess of Wemyss as Katherine of Aragon Lady Mond as Queen in "Richard II" Lady Paget as a Court Lady in "Henry VI" Lord Alexander Thynne as Henry VI with Duchess of Westminster as Queen of France Lady Rosemary Leveson-Gower & Countess Zia Torby - Court Ladies in "Henry VI" Viscountess Lewisham, Miss Una Shaw-Stewart, Lady Nunburnholme, as Fairies in "The Tempest" Lady Cynthia Graham & Lady Juliet Duff as Amazons Duke of Somerset as The Lord Protector Lady Lowther, Court Lady in Henry VI Mrs John Leslie as a Court Lady in "Twelfth Night" Duke of Manchester, Lord Dunraven, Baron de Tuyll, Countess of Craven, Duchess of Manchester Countess Hochberg and Sir Hill Child, Sir Godfrey Baring... Lord Colum Stuart as Salario in "The Merchant of Venice" Lady Gwendolin Spencer Churchill as Attendant on Portia Lady Beatrice Pole-Carew as "Portia"' by Lallie Charles Viscountess Curzon as Margaret of England The Hon. Victoria Sackville-West, (Lady Saviles Quadrille) Miss Violet Vanbrugh (Mrs Arthur Bourchier) as Lady Macbeth Lady Lister-Kaye as Court Lady in "Twelfth Night" Lord Sackville as Thomas Sackville Earl of Dorset Held at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday, 20 June 1911, the ball raised £10,000 towards the Shakespeare Memorial Fund. The souvenir album was offered to guests for five guineas per copy. "The Royal Albert Hall has seen many a spectacular ball held here during its long history, but perhaps none so spectacular as The Shakespeare Memorial Ball of 1911. Recreating the magnificence of Tudor England, The Shakespeare Memorial Ball took place on 20 June 1911, in order to raise money for the Shakespeare Memorial Fund. The lavishly designed interior, devised by architect Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens, transformed the Hall into a small-scale Coliseum decorated as an Italian-style Tudor garden..[]... Among the 3,000 who attended were Prime Minister Herbert Asquith, Home Secretary Winston Churchill, and, due to the event taking place two days before the Coronation of King George V, more members of European royalty present than at any other time in the Hall?'s history, including many crowned Princes and Princesses of Europe, Grand Dukes and Eastern rulers. After the dancing, there were tableaux representing scenes from Shakespeare?'s plays with nobility in brilliant costume. Guests dressed as dukes, cardinals, explorers, courtiers, ambassadors, peers, maids of honour, and other characters from the bard?'s dramas and the Elizabethan period. In fact, a number of the guests were direct descendants of the persons they were impersonating, including the Howards, Talbots, Cecils, Burghleys, Fortescue, Lytteltons, Hamiltons and Comptons. The event was a roaring success and raised £10,000 for the Shakespeare Memorial Fund." [From the Royal Albert Hall website, Wednesday 23 April 2014 by Natasha van der Pas] . Very Good.

The work includes accounts of General Sir John Doyle, Major-General Welbore Ellis Doyle, Lieut.-General Sir Charles Doyle, Major-General Sir Francis Hastings Doyle, Major-General Charles Joseph Doyle and Major-General Sir John Milley Doyle. A strong Guernsey connection is immediately apparent, for Sir John Doyle was Lieut.-Governor from 1802 to 1816 'and one of the most deservedly popular of our island rulers' (Tupper). In addition, Doyle's nephew, Charles Joseph Doyle, was appointed Captain in the 87th Prince's Own Regiment stationed in Guernsey in 1807. The author, Colonel Arthur Doyle, is the father of writer Arthur Conan Doyle, historical novelist and creator of Sherlock Holmes. This copy was formerly in the library of Edith Frances Carey, historian and author of Guernsey. It contains a number of relevant items of associated ephemera: 1) a long A.L.s to her from Lord de Saumarez, written from his residence at 43 Grosvenor Place London, mounted on front free endpaper; 2) an A.L.s, written on a postcard, from Henry Tupper, descendant of the Channel Islands historian Ferdinand Brock Tupper; 3) an engraved portrait of Major-General Sir Charles William Doyle (repeated as a plate) referred to in the correspondence; 4) a copy of Tupper's review of the present work, also mentioned in the postcard, as published in the 'Star' newspaper; 5) a cutting relating to the accidental death of Sir Everard Doyle. It is interesting to note that both de Saumarez and Tupper deliver in their correspondence less than favourable opinions of the work. 'it is rather carelessly compiled' (de Saumarez); 'it seems to me that Colonel Arthur Doyle is a regular plagiarist' (Tupper). A SPLENDID AND UNIQUE ASSOCIATION COPY WITH SEVERAL IMPORTANT GUERNSEY CONNECTIONS. Extremely scarce. Not in Thomson.
