There is also a pencil drawing of an Arab man and a dog which has "5 minute sketch - Jack Hassall" on the verso. The chatty letter was written to Jack [John Hassall] who was just home from a trip apparently to Australia with his wife Olivia (Bull writes " I hope you have brought back a boomerang"). It is 2 pages written on both sides of one piece of paper. Incorporated into the letter are 3 finished ink drawings of stereotypical Black natives, one playing a drum with bones and the other two dancing.

        Taft looks forward to the upcoming election of 1912 and "? the recent victory for constitutional government ? I am very hopeful of the result in November, but whatever happens we have fought a good fight for the country?s sake already and have won.?

      Washington, June 26, 1912. 7" x 8.75". "Autograph Letter Signed, ?Wm H. Taft? as President, 1page, 7"" x 8.75"" on White House letterhead, Washington, June 26, 1912 to ?Dear Mr. Glaser? regretting his inability ?... to be present at the Ratification Banquet ..."" Light soiling, usual folds, else very good condition. Taft writes in full: ""I deeply regret my inability to be present at the Ratification Banquet on Saturday Evening next. It would be a great pleasure to rejoice with you and my many friends over the recent victory for constitutional government that was won at Chicago. I am very hopeful of the result in November, but whatever happens we have fought a good fight for the country?s sake already and have won.? Only days before Taft wrote to Glaser, the Republican National Convention had nominated him to run for a second term as President. Taft?s victory in Chicago was marred by the defection of Theodore Roosevelt, who challenged Taft for the nomination. Roosevelt had come to the convention holding the majority of delegates chosen in the primaries, but Taft managed to secure most of the uncommitted delegates to secure the Republican nod. In protest, Roosevelt, bolted from the party to run as the independent ?Bull Moose.? In the ensuing general election, Taft and Roosevelt split the Republican vote allowing Woodrow Wilson?s victory in November. Taft was a champion of the Sixteenth Amendment which granted Congress the right to enact a federal income tax: hence his reference to a ?Ratification Banquet."" Taft proposed the amendment on June 16, 1909 in an address to Congress in which he requested passage of a 2% federal income tax on corporations, together with the amendment that would give it constitutional legitimacy. The amendment, which was characterized by its opponents as an attack on states' rights, took nearly four years to pass. At the time of Taft?s writing, only 33 states had approved the amendment, and 3 were still needed to secure ratification. Ratification came on February 3, 1913, when Delaware approved the measure. Including this letter only 7 ALsS of Taft as President have appeared at public auction over the last 40 years, and only 4 of those were accomplished on a single page. This letter last sold individually at Sotheby's in 1977."

Tetsuo Satoh pp. 37-38. The piano-vocal score, prepared by Alban Berg, first appeared in 1913 (U.E. 3696). An engraved full score in large format, including a number of corrections, was published in 1920 (U.E. 6300). First performed in Vienna on February 23, 1913, with Franz Schreker conducting the Vienna Philharmonic Choir and the Wiener Konzartvereinsorches Fritz Soot (1878-1965) was a German tenor. After singing a minor part at the world premiere of Strauss's Elektra (1909), he emerged as a leading singer in the 1910s. He took major parts in operas then new, including Mephistopheles in Busoni's Doktor Faust and the Tambourmajor in Berg's Wozzeck. He performed Schoenberg as early as 1913 (Vossische Zeitung, Berlin, November 17, 1913), and was considered for the part of Waldemar at the world premiere of the Gurrelieder (Schoenberg's letter to Soot of November 18, 1913). It is not known whether he sang the part on a later occasion. Richard Kraus (1902-1978), a German conductor, spent his entire career in his native country; in 1927, he took his first appointment in Kassel. "In March 1900 Schoenberg began setting Jens Peter Jacobsen's Gurre-Lieder as a song cycle for voice and piano, for entry in a competition... However, Schoenberg soon saw wider possibilities in the text... He therefore decided to connect the songs he had already composed (those in the first two parts of the finished work) with symphonic interludes and set the whole poem as a vast cantata employing several soloists and a huge chorus and orchestra. The work depicts the love of King Waldemar and Tove under the Tristanesque imminence of death, Waldemar's blasphemous defiance of God after Tove's death, the nightly ride at the head of a ghostly retinue to which the king's restless spirit is subsequently condemned, and its dismissal by the summer wind at the approach of day. Schoenberg encompassed all this in a series of tableaux of extraordinary magnificence." O. W. Neighbour in Grove online The Danish poet Jens Peter Jacobsen (1847-1885) wrote his Gurresange in 1871. The German translation is by Robert Franz Arnold (1872-1938).

Later, he gets a job in Henry Waterman & Company, and leaves it for Tighe & Company. He also marries an affluent widow, in spite of his young age. Over the years, he starts misusing municipal funds with the aid of the City Treasurer. In the second novel, already rich, Cowperwood moves to Chicago with his new wife Aileen. He decides to take over the street-railway system. He bankrupts several opponents with the help of John J. McKenty and other political allies. In the Stoic, the conclusion to the trilogy, and already a respected Tycoon, he decides to move to London, England, where he intends to take over and develop the underground railway system.

        THE LOST WORLD [Large Paper Issue]

      1912. [one of only 190 copies] Being an account of the recent amazing adventures of Professor George E. Challenger... London New York Toronto: Hodder and Stoughton, n.d. [1912]. Original light blue cloth blind-stamped with dinosaur footprints. First Edition, large paper issue (published on the same day as the trade edition). This was Doyle's first Professor Challenger science fiction tale: the exploring party ventures to a lost plateau deep in the South American jungle, where dinosaurs still reign. Both the movie "Jurassic Park" and the television series "The Lost World" owe much to this book. It was one of Doyle's favorite books; he based the character of and appearance of Professor Challenger partly upon Professor Rutherford (whom he had known at Edinburgh University) and partly upon himself -- though the frontispiece portrait of Challenger looks more like a Neanderthal than either gentleman.~On October 15, 1912, the trade edition of 10,716 copies was published (colonial copies are believed to have come a few weeks later); but also on October 15, of the 1,000 "Presentation" large-paper copies that had been printed, the 190 that had been bound (in this light blue cloth) were likewise published. It would not be until 1914 and later that the other 810 copies would be bound up in light BROWN cloth, and would be issued with a Henry Frowde title page (and with Frowde's name added to the spine; the last copies issued read "Milford" on the spine instead).~In addition to the larger size and the unusual dinosaur-footprint binding, this edition has some additional features not in the trade edition. The endpapers are photograph-pictorial, from the illustration of the distant view of the lost world's plateau. The illustrations, rather than being mere inserted plates, are tipped onto printed heavy brown leaves -- and there are more of them: whereas the trade edition has eight plates, this edition has thirteen -- including three in color.~This is a near-fine copy of a book quite difficult to find in desirable condition. There is scarcely any external wear, except that the gilt lettering varies in brightness (the spine cloth is lightly faded, and there is a trace of cover dustiness, but neither is serious). The pictorial endpapers remain intact, despite the volume's considerable heft. All of the plates' tissue guards are present (some are creased and one has a small tear). In all, being one of only 190 copies, this is a highly-desirable copy -- of what is often regarded as Doyle science fiction at its best. Green & Gibson A37c.

        ELF, A MAGAZINE OF DRAWINGS AND WRITINGS BY JAMES GUTHRIE.|THE

      Harting, Petersfield, Hampshire: The Pear Tree Press, 1912. original cloth-backed boards. Pear Tree Press. 4to. original cloth-backed boards. (vi), 82 pages with 21 separate plates of illustrations. No limitation but prospectus states 80 copies only were printed and explains why it came out in 1912 (Xerox of prospectus loosely inserted). Not cited in any of the standard bibliographies. Guthrie has described this edition as follows "Originally begun as a quarterly, and interupted by many causes. The author now offers more than the equivalent of Six parts in one volume at one Guinea." James J. Guthrie (1874-1952), was born in Scotland but moved to London as a child. He founded the Pear Tree Press in 1899 when living at Pear Tree Cottage in Ingrave, Essex, England. He moved several times before settling at Flansham, near Bognor Regis, Sussex in 1907. He was an artist, typographer, and printer with a particular interest in intaglio printing. Many of his titles stressed wood engraving and book plate design. Pagination agrees with that of copies described in WorldCat with the exception that this copy has 21 separate plates (other than frontispiece and title page) rather than the 20 in the WorldCat description. Very minor wear at head of spine and rubbing to covers. Ink ownership inscription on front free endpaper.

        The Heroes, or Greek Fairy Tales for My Children

      London: The Medici Society Ltd., 1912. Small quarto. xvii, 113pp. Out of an edition of 512, this is number two of twelve printed on vellum. Illustrated with twelve mounted color plates by Sir William Russell Flint. These reproductions of watercolor paintings were originally grouped together at the back of the book, but were distributed throughout the text in their relevant places when it was rebound. Together with an additional portfolio of twelve duplicate plates. The text was written by Charles Kingsley -- priest, historian, writer, and early supporter of evolution. Within, he tells the tales of Perseus, the Argonauts, and Theseus, for "there are no fairy tales like these old Greek ones, for beauty, and wisdom, and truth, and for making children love noble deeds, and trust in God to help them through."This volume features a designer binding by Lester Capon. Trained in the art of bookbinding by James Brockman, Capon is known for employing traditional bookbinding methods and materials within a modern context. Bound in green goatskin, with multi-colored and hand-stained leather and paper inlays and gold tooling. At the center of the spine extending over both covers is a circular design filled with small curved gold lines and dots and multicolor circular inlays; at the center, like the boss of a shield, the gilt title rests on a red circle. In the background, inlays and gold tooling resemble a field of stars and planets, and undulating navy lines run lengthwise across both covers. Capon says of the design: "The central massing of gold and coloured inlays is mainly based on shields, but I don't do 'literal' or illustration, so it's invented and imagined. Or it could be the sun! - the presence of ancient gods is prevalent and relevant, which is why, also, the hand stained inlays are suggestive of the heavens." Sewn silk endbands, orange Finnish reindeer suede doublures, and Ingres endpapers in harvest gold and merlot. T.e.g. Housed in felt-lined, cloth-drop back box in gray-blue with restraining wedge and a separate compartment for the cloth folder containing the additional plates. Extremely fine.
