        Five Issues of The Coconino Sun 1911

      Flagstaff, Arizona: Coconino Sun. 1911. Newspaper. Five issues of the Coconino Sun documenting the Kolb Brothers' journey down the Green and Colorado Rivers from 1911 to 1912. The five issues include: May 26, 1911, Volume XXVIII, Number 26; September 8, 1911, Volume XXVIII, Number 41; October 20, 1911, Volume XXVII, Number 47; November 17, 1911, Volume XXVIII, Number 51; November 24, 1911, Volume XXVIII, Number 52. The set does not include the last issue referring to the Kolb brothers' journey, dated to January 26, 1912. Issues have between 8pp to 12pp, many advertisements and a full page of illustrated cattle brands (around 58 brands). Included on the brand page of each issue is the brand illustration on the animal, written description of the brand, and range area of the herd, along with a horse brand chart. Prominent owner names include Babbitt, Hart, and Verkamp. Issues measure between 13" x 20" to 15" x 21 ½". In good condition. All issues are fragile with toning and tape repairs; chipped edges and some margin loss; all leaves are disbound, likely extracted from a book; "Territorial Lib 1106" rubber stamp on upper left corner of each issue. In the May 26, 1911 issue, editor Fred S. Breen published a short article on the Kolb brothers' intentions of taking a trip from the headwaters of the Green River to Needles. The article was titled "Will Attempt Perilous Trip" which led to a regular correspondence between the Coconino Sun and the Kolb Brothers. In the September 8, 1911 issue the brothers mention that they saw the notice in Breen's newspaper concerning their "contemplated trip for still and motion pictures through the Green and Colorado Rivers." They go on to say they have all their supplies and are ready to go but that "the town people here look on us as a physician might a hopeless case and then relate wierd [sic] stories of others who attempted the voyage and never heard from again." In the October 20, 1911 issue the article was titled "Making Perilous Jorney [sic]- Kolb Brothers Write Last from Jensen, Utah on Way Down Colorado," the writer of these articles continuing with the theme of the "perilous journey." And so it was, for in this issue the brothers disclose that "our third party would weep like a child when we got into tight places. We sent him home 155 miles overland to rail. We two will continue the trip alone." The next issue, November 17, 1911, mentions their experience through Cataract Canyon, their discovery of a man stranded but who refused their help, and in the end "their boats and camera's came through Cataract Canyon successfully." The last issue included here has quite interesting content, including an update that the Kolb Brothers reached the Grand Canyon "tired and wet, but happy," an article concerning the Prohibitionists on the State Ticket, another about a "Water Wizzard [sic] Well Worker," and a rather ridiculous article about a group of Oatman, Arizona bachelors proposing marriage en masse to 250 widows of Santa Monica, the article titled "These Bachelors Want Wives." Ellsworth and Emory Kolb completed their journey in January 1912, emerging from the Grand Canyon with photographs and films that they would show for the next sixty years. A rare record of the Kolb brothers' daring journey. No copies found in commerce as of January 2018. .

        Acquaintances, Old and New, Among Reformers

      [Milwaukee]: [S.E. Tate Printing Company], 1911. First edition. Original gray-blue publisher's cloth binding, with title and author embossed in gilt on front cover. Gentle bumps to corners; mild shelf wear to crown and foot of spine. Text block tight and unmarked, with the exception of pencil underlining on pages 20 and 29. Inscribed on the front free endpaper by the author: "Mrs. Adelaide Johnson with the love and admiration of Olympia Brown, 941 Seake Ave Racine Wis. Xmas 1913." This rare book last appeared at auction 37 years ago and sold unsigned, making this Near Fine association copy connecting two important leaders of the women's movement an exceptional piece. In this book, Brown documents a lifetime of intersectional activism that began with the influence of her mother, carried her through a college degree at Antioch College, and resulted in her leadership in both the American Equal Rights Association and the women's suffrage movement. With a firm belief that the fight for women's suffrage opened the door to a wider range of racial, economic, and social reform, Brown campaigned alongside such luminaries as Susan B. Anthony, Lucy Stone, and Alice Paul, Brown; and she dedicated her book "To the Woman Suffrage cause, which has inspired the noblest reformers of the last half-century." Adelaide Johnson, to whom Brown presents her book, was no less influential. An exhibitor at the groundbreaking 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, she promoted women's rights by presenting busts of Susan B. Anthony and Lucretia Mott. Almost two decades later, in the year after the 19th Amendment's passage, Johnson unveiled a monument that still remains in Washington, DC's Capitol rotunda: Portrait Monument to Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony. An exceptionally Fine book with an important and unique feminist association.

        The bookbinding trades journal

      [Co-operative Printing Society Limited], [1904-1911], [Manchester] - 31 issues, comprising issues 1-24 issues of Vol. I and 1-7 of Vol. II. Original publisher's printed red paper wrappers, housed in recent custom box of gilt-tooled red half-morocco, marbled sides and edges. Occasional slight chipping to extremities, light rubbing to box. Internally clean and crisp. A richly illustrated and informative trade bookbinding periodical. Initially issued by the Bookbinders and Machine Rulers' Consolidated Union of Manchester, and later by the National Union of Bookbinders and Machine Rulers (from Vol. II, No. 5 onwards), the publication continued until 1914 - concluding with Vol. II, No. 16. In addition to revealing the workings of the early twentieth-century bookbinding trade, this fascinating periodical provides practical advice regarding all manner of materials and techniques, including examples of the work of renowned craftsmen such as Sangorski, and reviews of contemporary styles such as art nouveau. In 1911 the Bookbinders and Machine Rulers' Consolidated Union amalgamated with the London Consolidated Society of Journeymen Bookbinders and others to form the National Union of Bookbinders and Machine Rulers. The origins of this trade union date to 1835 when numerous bookbinder societies had merged to create the Bookbinders' Consolidated Relief Fund; an organisation established both to assist those craftsmen 'tramping' in seek of work and to promote the overall betterment of conditions for journeymen bookbinders. The union became by far the largest in the nation, with approximately 2900 members listed at the turn of the twentieth-century. Size: 8vo [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Erste Ausgabe. - "Zu den herausragendsten Ergebnissen der topologischen Forschungen von B. gehört der 1911 publizierte Beweis, daß bei topologischen, d.h. eineindeutigen und stetigen Abbildungen von Mannigfaltigkeiten aufeinander sich deren Dimensionszahl nicht ändert. Mit der Einführung neuer Begriffe und origineller Methoden in die Topologie, wie z.B. simpliziale Approximation, Simplexstern und Abbildungsgrad, gelang es B., mehrere Invarianzbeweise zu führen und einige Fixpunktsätze zu beweisen. Ihre Bedeutung reicht aber weit über diese Anwendung hinaus. Durch sie wurden die kombinatorische und die abstrakte Topologie zu einer neuen Richtung verknüpft" (Lexikon bedeutender Mathematiker). - Stempel auf Titel, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. - DSB 2, 512 [Attributes: First Edition]

        THE TALE OF TIMMY TIPTOES

      1911. London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1911. Original light brown paper boards with arched pictorial onlay. First Edition of these adventures of Timmy Tiptoes (and his wife Goody), grey squirrels trying to get nuts collected and stored up for the oncoming winter. Timmy is wrongly accused of stealing other squirrels' nuts and is thrown through a tree-hole into his and Goody's nut storehouse -- where he gets sidetracked and eats so many of the nuts that he becomes too fat to get out. The presence of chipmunks and a bear in this tale have led to speculation that the author had American children in mind when she wrote and illustrated this book.~Customers could buy TIMMY TIPTOES in either light brown or dark green paper boards, priced at 1/-, or in decorated cloth, at 1/6. This copy is in light brown boards, and is in very good-plus condition (very slight wear at the spine ends); the half-title bears a "Nov. 1911" mother-to-son gift inscription. Linder pp 208-209 and p. 429; Quinby 20.
