        Letter from the prominent African-American politician and film producer, Dr. George E. Cannon, forwarding a circular, "Know the Truth! Statement from Entire Colored Delegation of the National Progressive Convention": Chicago, Aug. 7, 1912

      [New York]: [Mail & Express Job Print], 1912. The one-page typed, autographed letter from George E. Cannon, M.D., is on his personal stationery, addressed to H. C. Jarrett of Boston, and dated 27 September 1912. The matching envelope is franked with a red 2-cent Washington stamp (Scott #406). Both are in nice shape. The envelope shows some wear along its right edge where it was roughly opened; the letter has some mailing folds. Cannon's signature is crisp and clear. Cannon, a Lincoln University graduate, was a prominent member of New Jersey's African-American community. He founded a savings and loan to serve black-owned businesses and won a number of civil rights concessions from the city's notoriously corrupt Democratic boss, Frank Hague. In 1915, after viewing D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation, Cannon became so appalled that he established the Frederick Douglass Film Company and produced feature films depicting blacks as distinguished, professional, and successful citizens, including The Scapegoat, The Colored American Winning His Suit, and Heroic Negro Soldiers of the World War . A life-long Republican, who seconded the nomination of Calvin Coolidge at the 1924 Republican Convention, Cannon supported Roosevelt's third-party Progressive campaign. The enclosed circular, signed in print by the all of the African-American convention delegates, responded to charges by the anti-Roosevelt press that the Progressive Party was a racist organization that banned African-Americans from participatiom. In fact, this was not the case. Although the party rejected renegade mixed and all-black delegations from Florida and Mississippi, as the pamphlet points out, neither the party nor its convention were afflicted with "Lilly Whitism:" "For the first time in the history of the country colored citizens from the North and East have been sitting as delegates in a great National Convention, . . . the Progressive Party - a New Political Party- which knows no North, no South, no East , no West, no Race, no Creed, no Sex - but only American Citizenship as a party requisite. . . . The charge of "lily-whitism" was made for the sole and specific purpose of engendering political strife and embarrassment, with the hope of alienating the colored vote. Both the circular and Cannon's autograph are quite scarce. As of 2017, OCLC shows the circular being held by only three institutions, and there is only one auction record listed between ABPC and the Rare Book Hub. No other examples are available for sale within the trade.

        Biologia Centrali-Americani. Archaeology. Plates.

      1912 - [With] MAUNDSLAY (Alfred P.) A Note on the Position and Extent of the great temple Enclosure of Tenochititlan and the position, structure and orientation of teocalli of Huitzilopochtli. First edition. 18 vols. (2 text 16 altas). 404 plates, mostly autotypes, some tinted & some coloured lithographs. Large oblong folio. lightly rubbed. Text in modern cloth, atlases in original printed boards, rebacked, some marginal annotations in red pencil, most folding plates repaired at fold, some small marginal tears none affecting images. London, 1889 - One of the great monuments in the history of Mayan studies: Alfred Maudslay's photographs and drawings of a number of the major Mayan sites such as Quirigua, Copan, Chjichen Itza, Palenque and Yaxchiland, executed during his explorations in Central America between 1881 and 1900. Maudslay's work was published as part of the Biologia Centrali-Americana edited by Frederick DuCane Goldman and Osbert Salvin. Most of that massive set is devoted to natural history, and Maudslay's work was added almost as an afterthought. Maudslay, an archaeologist, was fascinated by the Mayan ruins and set himself the task of recording the architecture and monuments. He worked with a large wet-plate camera, developing his photographs on the spot. He also made extensive casts. In London, he hired an artist, Miss Annie Hunter, to draw accurate lithographic plates from his photographs and casts. The result is this stunning series of plates. Michael Coe says, ?It is impossible to exaggerate the importance to Maya research of Maudslay's published work. For the first time, Maya epigraphers had large-scale, incredibly accurate illustrations of complete Classic Text.? (Breaking the Maya Code). Coe also credits Maudslay with being the greatest recorder of Mayan inscriptions. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY; ARGENTINA] Agar Cross & Co., Buenos Aires : a photographic archive, c 1912

      A group of twenty-one large format bromide print photographs (230 x 150 mm), all unmounted (some minor edge tears and curling, but overall good condition), showing the premises of the major Argentinian manufacturing import enterprise, Agar Cross & Co. Ltd, Buenos Aires, c 1912. Photographer unknown. Most of the photographs bear a typed caption verso. Agar Cross & Co. imported machinery into the fabulously lucrative South American market from all over the world. A connection with Australian exporters was clearly already established at this time. One of the images shows a large number of administrative staff working in the Australian section, with the caption reading: Australian harvesters, windmills, threshers, dairy and ice machines. Another view of the exterior of the building, similar to the one in this group, is held in the Museum Victoria (Melbourne) collection, in an archive belonging to the Ballarat agricultural manufacturing company of H.V. McKay, Sunshine Factories & Products, which strengthens the evidence for a developed Australian interest in the Argentinian market for manufactured goods. All kinds of industrial and agricultural machinery are shown in the other photographs in this archive, including coaches, ploughs, pumps, boilers, machine tools, woodworking machines, and electric motors. A precious visual documentation of the international trade in manufactured goods between Australia, South America and Europe prior to World War 1.

        Za shest let (1906-1912 g. g.).

Contemporary black quarter morocco over marbled boards, spine lettered vertically in gilt art nouveau type; pp. 175; very light wear to edges only; apart from light even browning due to paper stock a very good copy; provenance: 1930s Estonian stamp and release stamp, dated 2002, on title-page; a beautiful copy. First edition of this Tsarist propaganda text, analyzing the six years after the 1906 revolution, and reporting on the unrest spreading throughout the Empire, among workers and students, reporting of rural terrorism (expropriation of the expropriators), bank robberies to fund revolutionary organizations, armed uprisings, strikes, relentless agitation via the press and the First Duma, which had been dissolved rightfully by the government, as it merely served as a platform for the agitators of oppositional propaganda. Polezhaev, who earlier had written a couple of books on Russian history, reports as well on uprisings in Crimea during these years, the declaration of Odessa as a Free City and the activities of the former Duma member and Jewish Socialist cadet leader Osip Yakovlevich Pergament. Polezhaev praises also the financial reforms introduced by prime-minister Stolypin, using statistics suggesting they improved Russia's economy. A French edition, translated by the ultra-conservative journalist Gaston Dru, appeared in the same year as the present edition. COPAC locates copies at Cambridge and UCL only, the BL holds a copy as well. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
