        The Phantom of the Opera

      New York: Bobbs-Merrill. (1911). First. First American edition. Color frontispiece and four striking two-page color illustrations by Andre Castaigne as issued. Contemporary owner name on the front fly, bottom corners a trifle bumped, near fine in a very good example of the exceptionally rare dustwrapper. The jacket has some professional internal repair, and some modest chipping at the spine ends that continues a bit onto the rear panel near the crown. 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. .

        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

      Printed by Aaron Jacob Divekar at the Mukti Mission Press. Published by Pandita Rambai, Kedgaon 1911 - Not in Yaari? Fragile, first page browned, some damage to bottom corner of last few leaves. 24 leaves plus paper-thin wrappers. The front wrapper has the full title, author, publisher, place, date. 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]

Aber wessen Seele ein starker Trunk mundet, wem die Brust sich weitet beim Anblick des Ausbruches eines grossen Temperamentes, einer originellen Phantasie, einer männlichen Kraft des Ausdruckes, der wird den Visionen Corinths, die in dem neuen Werk der Pan-Presse niedergelegt sind, ein dankbarer Beschauer sein. Dieses letzte Werk der Pan-Presse bedeutet technisch ein Novum. Corinth malte die Bilder auf den Stein, und die sorgliche Hand einer Schülerin des Kunstgewerbemuseums, des Fräulein Penzig, schrieb auf denselben Stein die Buchstaben. Das Papier dieses Buches wurde von keiner Buchpresse berührt; zu gleicher Zeit wie die Bilder druckte die Steinpresse die schwarzen Buchstaben auf den gemeinsamen Grund" (aus der Ankündigung im Börsenblatt, zitiert nach Feilchenfeldt-Brandis). - Alle Tafeln rückseitig mit winzigem Sammlerstempelchen versehen, sonst kaum sichtbare Fingerfleckchen und wenige minimale blasse Stockfleckchen, insgesamt sehr gute Innenerhaltung.

        ADVENTURE.

      Macmillan, NY 1911 - Original dark blue cloth decorated in cream and pale blue, octavo, 405 pp. + publisher's 6-page catalog at rear. 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.

Protected in archival plastic covers. At the height of WW II in 1943 while visiting the troops in North Africa, Winston Churchill was forced to his bed with pneumonia. Churchill continues the story: "The days passed in much discomfort. Fever flickered in and out.The doctors tried to keep the work away from my bedside, but I defied them. They all kept on saying, 'Don't work, don't worry,' to such an extent that I decided to read a novel. I had long ago read Jane Austen's SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, and now I thought I would have PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Sarah (his daughter) read it to me beautifully from the foot of the bed. I had always thought it would be better than its rival. What calm lives they had, those people! No worries about the French Revolution, or the crashing struggle of the Napoleonic Wars. Only manners controlling natural passion as far as they could, together with cultured explanations of any mischances. All this seemed to go very well with M and B (May & Baker, the pharmaceutical firm that supplied his anti-pneumonia drugs)." Heavy Set-will require additional postage. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ALS & photographic portrait of Giacomo Puccini.

      1911 - A striking black and white photographic portrait of the Italian composer of opera, including La Boheme, Tosca, Madama Butterfly, and Turandot. With a handwritten and signed note. The note is on letterhead 'Torre del Lago, Toscana', and dated September 30, 1911, and reads "My Dear Tonino, I stopped by to say hello to you and the young lady, but nobody was at home. I am leaving for London and Liverpool, and I shall be back in about twelve days. I am having an addition built to my existing cement dock extending out on the lake. I shall have it built with wood, covered by sheet metal, three meters by five. I am telling you this so that you may notify the town authorities. Our friend, Nasone, continues to spoil my hunting expeditions by preceding me with his early morning walks and flushing out whatever game there is. How long can this go on, I ask you? If this continues, I shall wind up asking you to introduce me to the sport of fishing, and I shall make you an offer you cannot refuse. By the way, let me know when Nasone's contract expires. We are all well and I shall write again. Adieu. P. S. Should we buy the little motorboat that Sargentini cut down in size? It would be very useful to me. It could be used instead of the three row boats which I keep on the dock." It is signed Puccini. The letter is addressed to Antonio Bettolacci, a friend and the administrator of the Marchese Ginori, which was across Lake Massaciuccoli. The "young lady" referred to is most likely Maria Bianca Ginori, the daughter of Carlo Ginori. Sargentini was the Ginori family chauffeur and mechanic. The photograph 4 3/4 x 6 3/4". The note, 6 x 9 1/2". Matted and framed in a gilt and red wood frame, 18 1/2 x 16". [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
