Her job included taking care of and helping young girls obtain citizenship in America. The log is somewhat repetitive in the beginning explaining her daily chores, "picked up papers and turned out lights in bathroom and study hall," "fixed chairs, tidied beds, stopped girls from gossiping," and "straightened room, stopped girls from talking in bathroom, helped girl with her studies." Other entries include Abbott separating the girls into groups to clean and take care of their studies as well as remarks about the girl's attitudes and work they've completed. Some entries include titles such as, "What I have seen done," "What I have done," and "What I have seen people do," all going into further detail about what Abbott has completed for chores and what the girls under her have completed. Several handwritten letters are laid in the journal from some of Abbott's pupils. Each one emphasizes all the good things the girls have done and all the rules they haven't broken. Others discuss less savory topics such as leaving in the night, gossiping, being late to class, missing out on chapel, and other small misdemeanors that could bar the girls from g … [Click Below for Full Description]

UHDE Wilhelm
UHDE Wilhelm. Galerie Bernheim jeune & Cie, Paris 1912, 12 x 15,5 cm, stapled First edition of the catalogue of the work of Henri Rousseau, known as "le Douanier" presented to Galerie Bernheim Jeune & Cie from 28 October to 9 November 1912.Rare and very beautiful copy of this brochure of the exhibition of Henri Rousseau's personal works, which greatly contributed to the recognition of the artist after his death two years earlier. During his lifetime, Henri Rousseau never had the opportunity to exhibit his works individually. In turn, both discredited and acclaimed at the Salondes Independants, to which he contributed for many years, he died relatively alone in September 1910. In the months that followed his death, three exhibitions dedicated to his work were organised in New York, at the Salon des Independants and at the famous Galerie Bernheim Jeune in Paris, a legendary place of French avant-garde painting for half a century.This rare Galerie Bernheim-Jeune catalogue is prefaced by William Uhde, organiser of the exhibition and author of a monograph on the artist published the previous year. This retrospective presented 50 paintings and drawings by Henri Rousseau: "One of the events of the season [...] is the superb exhibition of Henri Rousseau at Berheim-Jeune - such true beauty. I am extremely enthusiastic about these beautiful things - a portrait of a child standing is surely one of the most truly beautiful pictures to be seen anywhere" (letter from Marsden Hartley to the art dealer Alfred Stieglitz, 30 October 1912).Illustrated brochure comprising reproductions of 4 of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Continuing on to the Setit, he shot lion, buffalo, kudu and other plains game, some from a machan near a watering hole. Cotton then trekked to the Rahad and Dinder Rivers where he collected lion, buffalo, hippopotamus and a variety of plains game. The nine month safari cost Cotton£750!" (Czech). Czech, Africa, p. 67.

McBride, Nast & Co, 1912. First edition thus. Hardcover. 8vo. Red pictorial cloth. Minor bumping to spine ends and corners; sparse toning/foxing to pages. About near fine. 267pp. New. Early work featuring an independent and successful disabled protagonist, first serialized in 1908. A first-person narrative, ostensibly by an anonymous young woman, recounting her ambitions and achievements following the loss of one leg in early childhood and the consequent physical and social restrictions imposed on her. Presented as nonfiction and received as such by contemporary reviewers, with the publisher responding to one enthusiastic contemporary reader: "Our contract with the author especially provides that we are not to reveal the identity, and we cannot give the names of any other books by this author without violating our agreement." ("Travel," Jan. 1913.) Another memoirist, however, in her own account of life with a similar disability, wrote: "The book proved to be the bastard brain child of a big and bouncing and very jolly New York businessman and writer. He does use crutches, having a pair of unreliable knees [...] but he is definitely not a fascinating little feminine hopper. Although he admits openly to a new legitimate book every year or so, he never confesses his paternity to THE GIRL WITH THE ROSEWOOD CRUTCHES, that poor love child of his careless youth." ("Out on a Limb," Louise Baker, 1946.) Despite the book's sentimentality and inspirational appeal, its treatment of disability is engagingly modern and matter-of-fact in many respects: as the heroine's need for crutches i … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Please no offers by timewasters !] George Sylvester Viereck (December 31, 1884 - March 18, 1962) was a German-American poet and writer. In 1923, Viereck published a popular-science book entitled Rejuvenation: How Steinach Makes People Young, which drew the attention of Sigmund Freud, who wrote Viereck asking if he would write a similar book about psychoanalysis. Viereck traveled to Vienna to interview Freud, and then went to Munich to interview Adolf Hitler. During the mid-1920s, Viereck went on several additional tours of Europe, interviewing Marshal Foch, Georges Clemenceau, George Bernard Shaw, Oswald Spengler, Benito Mussolini, Queen Elisabeth of the Belgians, Henry Ford, Albert Moll, Magnus Hirschfeld, and Albert Einstein.Viereck became close friends with Nikola Tesla. Tesla occasionally attended dinner parties held by Viereck and his wife. He dedicated his poem „Fragments of Olympian Gossip" to Viereck, a work in which Tesla ridiculed the scientific establishment of the day. Viereck also published a vampire novel, The House of the Vampire (1907), which is one of the first psychic vampire stories where a vampire feeds … [Click Below for Full Description]

Robinson, W. Heath
Henry Holt & Co, New York, 1912. First US edition, in dust jacket, quarto size, 272 pp. William Heath Robinson (1872-1944) was an exemplary book illustrator and cartoonist, "the only British illustrator to become a 'household name'" (Houfe), a contemporary of acclaimed illustrators Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac, best known for his cartoons portraying elaborate and whimsical machinary made to complete simple tasks. In fact, his fame was such that the term "Heath Robinson" was used in the United Kingdom to refer to such machinary, much as the term "Rube Goldberg" was used in the United States. "Bill the Minder" is written and illustrated by Robinson, and this first US edition is replete with line drawings in Robinson's bold and confident style (well over 100, including chapter head- and tail-pieces), as well as sixteen colour plates visualising the fanciful world the characters explore. This volume has the extremely scarce dust jacket; as of this writing, there are no other copies online with the dust jacket. ___DESCRIPTION: Full green cloth, gilt lettering and colour illustration inset within a gilt floriated border on the front board, gilt lettering and illustration on the spine, frontispiece a full-colour tipped-in illustration by W.

London: Blackie and Son Limited, 1912. Robinson, Charles. First Edition. First printing, quarto size, 317 pp. The fables in this book range from short, whimsical poems to prose stories, and all are full of the magic and charm of animals rendered by British book illustrator Charles Robinson (1870-1937). An extremely prolific artist, Robinson fills this volume with copious line drawings on nearly every page, with twenty-eight colour illustrations which bring to life the unique personality of each animal in the tales. Robinson collaborated often with English writer and editor Walter Jerrold (1865-1929), as is the case with this collection of fables; together they create a monumental work of stories that have captured the imaginaton of children for generations. ___DESCRIPTION: Full red cloth, gilt lettering and illustrations on the front board and spine, all edges gilt, endpapers with illustrations in green, dark grey, and white, frontispiece a full-colour illustration by Charles Robinson captioned "The Peacock and the Crane", title page in red and black with an illustration of a rooster, line drawings in black, many full-page, and twenty-eight (including frontispiece) full-page colour illustrations by Robinson throughout; quarto size (10" by 8"), pagination: [i-v] vi-xxi [xxiii] [1-2] 3-293 [294]. ___CONDITION: Volume is near fine, with clean boards, bright gilt, a strong, square text block with solid hinges, and the interior is clean and bright; slight rubbing to bottom front corner, some gentle bumping to the head and tail of the spine, light foxing to the front free endpape … [Click Below for Full Description]

Peter Martyr (Francis MacNutt - ed. & trans.)
New York - Glendale: Putnam - Arthur H. Clark, 1912. Both volumes very good w/no DJs, as issued. The foldout map in volume 2 is in great shape. Originally published as 1 of a set of 375 by Putnam however this set shows Arthur H. Clark of the spines as well as on the page opposite the Title Page. In addition, there is an Arthur H. Clark label pasted over the Putnam name on the lower portion of the Title Page. As if all this wasn't enough to confuse most book sellers & readers, the verso page states Knickerbocker Press! A reasonable guess is that Putnam printed, numbered & sold the 1st 375 sets. Clark then made a deal to market the remaining copies. This set states 1 of 375 sets but there is no number following. In any case this is a nice set of books with no other markings or writing. Books may be returned for a refund for ANY reason if received back within 14 days of buyer receipt. Oh, and one final anomaly - MacNutt is misspelled (McNutt) on the spines!! Domestic shipping is $5.00 using USPS Media Mail - all other shipping methods at cost.
