        The Rowfant Club John Hay Medal (1912).

      Struck at the U. S. Mint for Ambrose Swasey of the Rowfant Club, Cleveland, Ohio (1912). # 33 of 170. - From the Clark Bibliography of Rowfant Club Publications (p. 74; 1925): "[John] Hay Medal designed and executed by Victor David Brenner, 1912, lettered 'John Hay/the Rowfant Club, Cleveland'; obverse, bust of John Hay; reverse, female figure with globe of the Americas and rolled chart of China coastline, with monogram V. D. B., lettered 'Open door in the Far East.' Issued [Cleveland] 1912. Bronze medal, 3" in diameter, 3/16" thick [.] 170 examples were struck, each numbered on the edge. This medal was the gift of Ambrose Swasey [1846-1937], past president of the Club. An example was presented to each member of the Club at the time of its issuance. One of the best examples of Brenner's excellent work. It was struck in bronze at the U. S. Mint." This example lacks the original morocco case & printed descriptive circular. This circular is quite rare & we will quote it in full from the Rowfant Club's archival copy: "When it was decided by the Rowfant Club to add a medal to its list of publications, the best subject was not far to seek. John Hay imposed himself. He was a great man, a man honorable and honored by his country and by the world as a statesman and diplomat, and he was a writer [The Bread Winners] and a reader and a lover of books. To Rowfanters, he was a Cleveland man, an honorary member of the Club, a man in sympathy with the Club's aims, indulgent of the Club's foibles. He was one who at the Sign of the Candle could be and was held in esteem and admiration, and also in affection. John Hay was born in Salem, Indiana, on the eighth of October, 1838. In 1858 he was graduated from Brown University, then he studied law three years and was admitted to the Bar of the State of Illinois. His public life began in 1861, when President Lincoln took him from Springfield to Washington as one of his secretaries. He stayed with Mr. Lincoln until the latter's death, and afterward entered the diplomatic service and was Secretary of Legations successively in Paris, Madrid, and Vienna. In 1897 he was by President McKinley appointed Ambassador to the Court of St. James, and in September, 1898, he became Secretary of State. He held this office until his death. From 1869 to 1897 he was in private life, living principally in New York, Washington and Cleveland. In 1874 he married Miss Clara Stone, daughter of Amasa Stone, of Cleveland. He died on the first of July, 1905. The medal was designed and executed by Victor Brenner, and struck in bronze by the United States Mint, in the number of 170 examples, of which this accompanies Number---. It is the gift to the Rowfant Club of Ambrose Swasey, Past President of the Club, and is issued to Rowfanters as a Club Publication." The medal has some fingerprinting & a few age related dark spots & a very small (1 mm.) defect to upper left inner rim of obverse. Approximate weight is 5 oz. Brenner is best known as the designer of the Lincoln penny; he did work for the Grolier Club as well. A very rare piece of Rowfant memorabilia. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Typed Manuscript, signed ("M. Gorkii"), warning of the consequences of the Russian invasion of Persia, with an autograph cover letter, signed ("M. Gorky"), conveying the manuscript, to Frederick Whelen

      Capri, february 3, 1912 - Frederick Whelen was a member of the Persia Committee, which was a group formed in opposition to Britain's policy toward Persia in the wake of the 1907 Anglo-Russian treaty, which crushed the nascent constitutionalist movement and divided Iran into Engish and Russian "spheres of influence." Early in 1912, when Russian troops invaded northern Iran, ostensibly to restore order, Whelan invited Gorky, via Prince V. Bariatinsky, to comment on the "Persian trouble"; Gorky responds with this manuscript, arguing that the Russian government's invasion is inhumane, futile, and "is creating, by its senseless conduct, a new and irreconcilable enemy in Persia for the Russian people. Moreover, the conduct of the Russian troops in Persia is serving to strengthen the spread of Orthodox Pan-Islamism, which rejects the creative ideas and principles fostered in Europe, and in this way the Russian Government's actions are injurious to the interests of European culture . I cannot see what ideas useful to the Persians the Russian Bureaucracy can possibly introduce. Finally I think that the seizure of Persia has been due not so much to the interests of Russian capital as to the desire of the Dynasty of the Romanoffs to give to their people a new extensions of territory and by so doing to commemorate the 300th anniversary of their own establishment in Russia. This tercentenary- as it is well known, is fictitious, and this gift will develop into a source of misfortune for the Russian people, for it is impossible to believe that Persia will reconcile herself to the enslavement which threatens her" 4to. 2 pp. typed manuscript on paper, in Russian, 1 p. autograph cover letter, in English, with a typed English translation of the manuscript. Very light foxing, overall very good

        Shipping Casualties - Loss of the Steamship "Titanic" : Report of a Formal Investigation into the Circumstances Attending the Foundering on the 15th April, 1912, of the British Steamship "Titanic", of Liverpool, After Striking Ice In or Near Latitude 41 46' N., Longitude 50 14' W., North Atlantic Ocean, whereby loss of life ensued .

      London. His Majesty's Stationery Office. Printed by J. Truscott and Son. 1912. - The First Edition. 74pp. Tall 8vo. Bound in imprinted blue wrappers. Housed in archival clamshell box. The British inquiry into the sinking of the Titanic was headed by a former judge, Lord Mersey, and, although some have suggested it was a whitewash, his report is described by the British historian Richard Howells as "the most sober and detailed documentary account available" and by American writer Stephen Cox as "a monument of intelligent and well-grounded diversity of judgment." Mersey found that the entire passage had been made at high speed but not maximum speed and that the Captain had not been ordered by the owners to break the transatlantic record as was being alleged. He acquitted Captain Smith of negligence. He regretted that there had been no proper boat drill (because the law did not require it) and that some of the half-empty lifeboats had not sought to save the passengers in the water. He regretted that the Leyland liner Californian, under Captain Lord, stopped by ice between five and ten miles away, had failed to respond to the distress rockets. Had it done so, it might have saved lives. The Board of Trade required sixteen lifeboats for all vessels over 10,000 tons and the Titanic had twenty but still not enough for the number of passengers. The inquiry recommended that in future there should be sufficient lifeboats for all those on board all ships, watertight bulkheads, a twenty-four-hour wireless service on all ships, regular boat, fire and watertight door drills, and the reduction of speed on the receipt of ice warnings. (Jeffrey Richards) Various usual chipping to thin paper covers at edges and spine.Small coloured smudge to front cover. Previous owners ink inscription to top of Title Page. Internals nicely preserved, alebit some usual dog-earing throughout. A delicate but extremely sound, clean copy of this extremely rare relic of the Titanic disaster.

      Government Printing Office, Washington, DC. 1912 - 8vo - 20.5 x 15 cm.; viii - 648 pp. Black leather over thin and flexible boards with gilt lettering on spine and front. This is the "House Manual and Digest" as issued to Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr. upon his taking the oath of office in the House of Representatives as a representati ve from Minnesota. Patterned doublure end papers with a green linen hinge (interior). Front paste down shows remnants of a pasted on typed sheet, a poem by Charles MacKay (Scottish poet - 1814-1889) and the same typed poem ("Keep Gallilee, to thy thought, and nerve the soule to bear; . . .") is pasted in full over the entirety of page 12 of the manual. Inscribed by Lindbergh, Sr. to his son, Charles, Jr., on the front free end paper with the verso of this page having a note to Charles, Jr. from his father. "To Charles A. Lindbergh Jr. Sometime you may be interested to know something of the variety of your fathers sentiments and feelings. More or less of them find expression in the selection that will be found herein - You are not to have these till I give them to you or until I have quit using them because I am likely to add to them from time to time. Your father, Charles A. Lindbergh Sr." This note is in pencil while the dedication on the recto of the end paper is in ink. The manual comes from the estate of Eddie Doherty, a reporter with Liberty magazine. Doherty was working the rewrite desk at the time of the Lindbergh kidnapping and was assigned by the editors to cover the story and subsequent trial. Doherty was a frequent patron of Pete's Steak House in Chicago along with his brother Tom Doherty as were many Chicago newspaper people including Henry and Claire Boothe Luce, both of whom were acquaintances of Eddie Doherty. The manual is disbound (three sections; front to page 248, pages 249 to 486, pages 487 to the end) with the relevant spine sections attached to each section. The yapped cover edges are all but gone with the leather chipped on the margins. Cosmetic and archival repairs have been made to the remaining leather. No further repairs were deemed reasonable given the nature and provenance of the book. The book itself is housed in a custom built clam shell case designed to mimic the appearance of the manual though with different materials: red linen over the 'boards', leather spine with gilt titling and marbled 'text block edges'.; Signed by Author [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Otherwise a very good copy, internally crisp and clean. Partially unopened.Belgian poetic dramatist and essayist Maurice Maeterlinck (1862&#150;1949) "wrote in French, establishing himself as one of the leading figures in the symbolist movement with his play La Princesse Maleine (1889; English trans. 1892). In 1892 Pelléas et Mélisande appeared (trans. 1894), the work for which he is now chiefly remembered and the source of Debussy&#146;s opera of the same name (1902). He also achieved great contemporary popularity with L'Oiseau bleu (1908; The Blue Bird, 1909) and was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1911. He drew heavily on traditions of romance and fairy tale, and the characteristic tone of much of his drama is one of doom-laden mystery and timeless melancholy. He also produced a number of essays of a philosophical nature, including La Vie des abeilles (1901; The Life of the Bee, 1901) and L'Intelligence des fleurs (1907; The Intelligence of Flowers, 1907)" (The Oxford Companion to English Literature).After the tragic death of his twin brother and collaborator, Edward Detmold concentrated his talents on books, primarily of flowers and animals: "Detmold&#146;s finest plates are those produced for The Fables of Aesop (1909), The Life of the Bee (1911), and Hours of Gladness (1912), the latter with texts after Maurice Maeterlinck, the Belgian poet, naturalist, and mystic A painting of chrysanthemums, contained in Hours of Gladness, is a glorious acknowledgement of the artist's debt to William Morris and Burne-Jones" (David Larkin, The Fantastic Creatures of Edward Julius Detmold).Houfe, p. 283.
