        Seiho Junishi Jo (An Album of the Twelve Zodiacal Signs by Seiho).

      Kyoto Geisodo Yamada Naosaburo 1911 - Small folio. Folding album consisting of twelve ink wash and color prints on thirteen sheets, each bearing Seiho's chop mark. One of the key figures of modern Japanese painting, Seiho (1864 - 1942) absorbed elements of European-style painting -- Impressionism, in particular -- and successfully fused them into traditional Japanese styles, especially those of the Maruyama-Shijo School. The present work, which is considered a masterpiece of Shijo artistry, clearly demonstrates this harmony between styles. Seiho was awarded the first Order of Cultural Merit in 1937. Two small holes on the front blank, else a bright, clean copy in original paper-covered boards, which show light edgewear and abrasions to front cover. Housed in a rough cloth folding case with bone clasps. (See Hillier, The Art of the Japanese Book, pp. 991-993) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mr. Churchill on the Peers by Winston S. Churchill, first edition only printing, bound in Pamphlets & Leaflets for 1910, Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      The Liberal Publication Department, London 1911 - Contained in this bound volume is the first edition, only printing of this scarce Churchill speech pamphlet. In 1910 Winston Churchill was a young lion of the Liberal Party, vexing the British establishment and helping Lloyd George lay the foundations of the modern welfare state. Here is the original 1910 leaflet publishing Churchill's 14 November letter stating vehement opposition to the veto power of the House of Lords. This leaflet captures the young radical Churchill in full flower. "Was ever inequality more scandalous? Was ever injustice more glaring? All classes are to have votes; but only Tory votes are to count. WE CAN SUBMIT NO LONGER TO THIS USAGE. THIS IS OUR LAND AS MUCH AS IT IS THEIRS." The leaflet is two pages, published by the Liberal Publications Department as Leaflet No. 2358 on 18 November 1910. It is bound in a volume containing Liberal Party speeches and pamphlets for the year 1910. The binding is black leather pebble grain spine over green ribbed cloth covers, the book measures 8.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide by 1 inch thick. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets. The book is a fascinating piece of history, containing pamphlets and leaflets of various shapes and sizes, many of which are folded in and, we imagine, are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. Condition of the bound volume is good overall - with a fair binding but fine contents. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are in excellent condition - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. No spotting. Even the page edges are clean. A previous owner name is inked on the ffep and there is minor bookseller pencil notation on the front pastedown. The leather spine is still intact, but dry and fragile with losses at the spine ends and all along the front hinge. The green cloth boards show moderate scuffing.

The green cloth top board is clean and bright with virtually no wear. The rear board is also clean and bright overall, but with some scuffing along the fore edge. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are in excellent condition. The binding is tight, the pages are exceptionally bright and clean, and the top edge retains bright gilt. No spotting and no inscriptions - just what looks to be some minor bookseller notation in pencil on the pastedown. A rare and exciting find for collectors.

      SWEETSER INDIANA IN 1911 - On offer is an archive of four [4] handwritten manuscript diaries (there is a 5th book only partially written, mostly religious poetry) representing the years 1911, 1912, 1913 and 1914. The diaries belonged to Harry O. Lanning who was a science teacher at the high school in Sweetser Indiana at the turn of the century. This diary set is an extraordinary record of pre-World War I Indiana with a sweet and interesting back story of romance too. Harry was born on October 21st, 1882. His parents are William J. Lanning and Mary F. He has three brothers; Carl, Hugh and Paul. Research suggests he was also a widower at the time the diaries were written because on several occasions he mentioned things like "she, being a widow too" and other such phrases. Throughout all 4 of these well filled diaries you'll find Harry courting a woman by the name of Edith Lucille Cranor. Edith was born on April 13th, 1889 and her folks are McClellan and Florence V. (Chenoweth). The on-again, off-again love affair and courtship of these two makes for a simmering backdrop to local news, his duties and other 'affairs' as at times both are seeing other people. At one point Edith takes a 3 month trip to the West Coast and Harry finds out by word of mouth she wants to stay in the west and teach in New Mexico. That never turned out because on May 21st, 1914 Edith and Harry marry. Harry is also very interested in politics especially with the Roosevelt elections and talks about the events surrounding the election a great deal. His teaching takes up a great deal of his life also (not quite as much as Edith does) and when it comes to writing about any of it, Harry doesn't leave anything out. He's a member of the organization "Red Men" (I believe it might be The Improved Order of Red Men fraternity) and not only writes about his meetings but also mentions the surrounding Indian villages. Harry is a marvelous writer too. Here are just a few snippets of this marvelous bit of Hoosier Americana: 1911 "January 2nd, School started off nicely after the vacation. Everybody seems to like the new program better than the older one. Well, they all ought to considering the trouble I had to make it. Carl Masterson has started in bringing our number again to 49; but I am not certain that he will stick. Worked until 10 p.m. on the Red Men's books but we can't make a report. I had a suspicion that I was "stung" when the sachem put me on the audition committee, and now I know it. The books are in a fearful tangle showing either ignorance or willful neglect on the part of at least two of the chiefs. The other members of the committee are Furgeson and Jerry Flinn. I imagine the report when it does come in, will be an eye opener." "January 20th, Edith Cranor called up this morning before I was out of bed to tell me that a little deal we had prearranged was due for this evening. So this evening I took Ferguson and went out to call on her and her friend, Miss Shamshaw of Marion. We had a very pleasant time. About 10:30 I spread my handkerchief over the face of the clock and when I did look at my watch it was 1:10. Miss Edith informed me that she often spent her Sunday evenings alone, in fact, she took pains to repeat it three times, with emphasis, so I am just conceited enough to take it as a suggestion and shall act accordingly. Funny, I haven't had a girl, or even a chance at one for so long and now I have three chances at once ." "February 21st, Went to lodge this evening. The tribe honored me by elevating me to the Prophet's stump. After lodge Ferguson and I went to the missionary tea to the parsonage. I took Edith home according to schedule .I didn't want to wait until Sunday to see Edith again so I asked for Thursday evening in case the other affair is cancelled ." "March 11th, In the afternoon I went to the Indiana to see the Countess Swiriska in her famous bare foot dances. She is certainly an artist and seemed totally oblivious to the fact that her attire was, well, scanty. As [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Domestic Architecture of England During the Tudor Period

      B.T. Batsford 1911, London - 3 vols. SUBSCRIBER'S EDITION. Buckram edges have been sympathetically repaired. Although the issued title page is dated 1911, the prospectus to vols 1 and 2 indicates that they were published before 1909 and that vol. 3 was initially scheduled for publication in 1911. The three volumes contain in total 246 pages of text and 180 plates comprising both photographs and architectural details - these plates are rather confusingly mixed across the three volumes, but they are complete; the title pages to volumes one and two were issued with volume 3; volume 3 also contains a complete list of subscribers.

The jacket art repeats the striking Castaigne image of the Phantom descending the staircase of the Paris Opera House, and wraps around onto the spine, and is overprinted in embossed gold. From an older private collection, this was long thought to be the only known jacketed copy (we remember when it last appeared in a catalogue about 20 years ago), but our research has identified two other jacketed copies. One is a variant design with identical text, type, and $1.25 price, but utilizing a different image from the book, while the third known surviving example is the same design as this copy but with significantly more chipping. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell case. Filmed several times, most indelibly with Lon Chaney as the vengeful composer, and in recent decades transformed into a successful musical play, and a less successful musical film. Some modest flaws, but try to find another. A true rarity, and perhaps the only jacketed copy that will ever appear on the market. .

        The Intrusion of Jimmy

      Grosset and Dunlap 1911 - New York F/NF. The book is fine with neat inscription dated july 1911 New York. The wrapper has no loss ,no soiling with two short closed tears . A spectacular copy with the wrap around dustjacket identical to the Ist .Watt published in may 1910 and G&D obtained the rights and published in may 1911 . There was a copy of the Ist in wrapper in the James Heinemann collection sold at Sothebys in 2000 but it was quite badly chipped with loss. I doubt there is a better copy and all pre 1920 wrappers are gaining enormously as each year goes by . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Franklin Roosevelt: Tammany Hall and Its Members Are Not ?all objectionable?

      Tammany Hall was the name given to the Democratic political machine that dominated New York City politics for almost a century, directing the flow of money, patronage and votes in state and local elections. Roosevelt first came to public attention starting in 1911 as a reformer persistently fighting Tammany, a reform stance that cost him the 1914 Democratic U.S. senatorial nomination. After that, he held Tammany Hall at arm?s length, but avoided direct confrontations. He soon came to feel that the touch of Tammany was not always poisonous, and become a dedicated supporter of Al Smith, a progressive and effective governor but a Tammany man. Once FDR was himself governor, however, he again sought to diminish Tammany?s power, helping force its Mayor James J. Walker from office. Roosevelt?s election as president was a dual setback for the machine. The New Deal helped alter the demographic landscape of New York by making people less dependent on Tammany for jobs and assistance, and the election of anti-Tammany reformer and Roosevelt protege Fiorello LaGuardia removed City Hall from Tammany?s immediate control. Still, it retained some of its power and Roosevelt maintained a nuanced position towards it - being essentially in opposition to the machine but not holding the fact of membership in Tammany against otherwise-qualified people. James B.M. McNally was a New York Democrat and Tammany member. Roosevelt liked his qualifications and named him U.S. District Attorney for the Southern District of New York in 1943. There was initially opposition to the nomination on the grounds of McNally?s Tammany affiliation, but FDR stuck with him and the opposition dissipated. McNally went on to a distinguished career as Justice of the New York Supreme Court. This letter defending his choice perfectly illustrates FDR?s stance on Tammany Hall. Typed Letter Signed as President on White House letterhead, Washington, June 29, 1943, to his long-time personal friend, Charles C. Burlingham, a New York lawyer and perhaps the leading municipal reformer of the time. ?I am glad to have your second note about McNally and to know that the Bar Association has withdrawn its objection to him. I fully understand your point of view - even though I have never voted in New York City. The fact remains that tens of thousands of people in New York City voted the Democratic ticket and tens of thousands of people are members of Tammany Hall. I do not think they are all objectionable for that reason!? This is our first Roosevelt letter on the subject of the Tammany machine, and it is an extremely frank one. Only in a letter to someone he trusted implicitly would the normally reticent FDR have confided his true, mixed feelings about Tammany.

        Wonderful Testimonies Plaot Edut The Book of Esther

There are other volumes, but I only have the book of Esther OCLC: Only 3 libraries world wide own this and none have a complete set. Issued in parts; each part has special t.p. Hebrew, with 4 interlinear English versions. The Hebrew words of the Bible with interlinear translations in English, arranged by Pandita Ramabai, preparatory to a version of the Bible in Marathi which she intended publishing. Pandita Ramabai (23 April 1858 - 5 April 1922) was a social reformer and activist in India. She was born as Brahmin Hindu and being well learned in the languages and Hindu texts was conferred the title "Pandita' by the distinguished educators of Calcutta University in 1878. However she became disillusioned later, by the deception practiced by priests, superstition and plight of women depicted in the Hindu texts. It was at this point that Ramabai resolved to spend her life attempting to better the status of women in India. She later converted to Christianity, and served widows and helpless women of India. She started Arya Mahila Samaj, which is Sanskrit for Noble Women's Society. The society purposed to work for the deliverance of Indian women from the oppression of child marriage. Bursting with zeal for her cause, Ramabai labored for both their spiritual and physical betterment. In a lecture given in June 1882, she pronounced, Men look on us women as chattels: we make every effort to deliver ourselves from this situation. But some will say that this is a rebellion against man, and that to do this is sin. To leave men's evil acts unrebuked and remain unmoved before them is a great sin. In an address to Lord Ripon's Education Commission, she declared with fervor, In 93 cases out of 100 the educated men of this country are opposed to female education and the proper position of women. If they observe the slightest fault, they magnify the grain of mustard-seed into a mountain, and try to ruin the character of a woman. Ramabai was also a poet and scholar. In order to learn more about the education of women and receive training for her lifelong battle to help unshackle the women in India, she visited most parts of India, and even went to Britain (1883) and the United States of America (1886¿88). During this time she also translated textbooks and gave lectures throughout the United States and Canada. Somehow she also found time to write and get published one of her most important books, The High-Caste Hindu Woman. This was also the first book that she wrote in English. Ramabai dedicated this book to Dr. Anandibai Joshi, the first Indian woman to earn a medical degree through training in Western medicine, who died in February 1887, less than 6 months after returning to India from America. The High Caste Hindu Woman, which, according to her beliefs, showed the darkest aspects of the life of Hindu women, including child brides and child widows, sought to expose the oppression of women in Hindu-dominated British India. Ramabai was born into an intellectual Hindu Marathi-speaking Chitpavan Brahmin family at Karnataka (Karkala Taluk, Mangalore District). Her father, Anant Shastri Dongre,who stayed at a place in western ghats called Gangamoola,(Mala village,Karkala,Karnataka) was not a Sanskrit scholar and believed that women should have education and supported women learning Sanskrit from his study of the Hindu texts. Against the prevailing traditional Hindu social structure, he taught Puranas and Sanskrit shlokas to Ramabai as well as his second wife, Ramambai¿s mother Laxmibai and how to read and write Sanskrit as well as how to interpret vedic texts. By the age of twelve, she had memorized 18,000 verses from the Puranas. Besides Sanskrit, Ramabai leaned the Marathi, Kanarese, Hundustani, and Bengali languages. Her father faced hardships as [Attributes: Soft Cover]

INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY JACK LONDON on front free endpaper: "Dear Carlt & Lora; Pretty accurate & fairly straight, this narrative of the cannibal isles. Affectionately yours, Jack London, Glen Ellen, Mar. 19, 1911." London habitually called his good friend Carlton Bierce "Carlt." He was the nephew of Ambrose Bierce and a member of "The Crowd" - the circle of friends, mainly Bay Area Bohemians, artists and writers - that re-formed in Carmel after the 1906 earthquake. These included Jack & Charmian London, George and Carrie Sterling, George Wharton James, Mary Austin, Xavier Martinez, Dick & Blanche Partington, et al. (See Walker, Franklin. "The Seacoast of Bohemia"). Inscribed in the month of publication - in fact, only 10 days after the Library of Congress received their deposit copy. The Bierces' visit to the Londons at their Glen Ellen home on March 11, 1911 is recorded in "Jack London: A Definitive Chronology" by Russ Kingman, where they are described as bringing with them "The Crouched Venus." George & Carrie Sterling were also in attendance. The UK edition of this title preceded the American edition by 1 month. BAL 11928; Walker & Sisson p. 56; Woodbridge 85.
