Kniazev, Anisim Titovich
Troynitskiy, S. N, 1912. The manuscript armorial was compiled by the Russian heraldist and genealogist Anisim Kniazev. In December 1785 it was presented by the author as a gift to the Russian Empress Catherine the Great. Later the manuscript appeared at the library of Prince Grigory Potemkin and after his death, along with other books, assigned to Ekaterinoslav University, it was kept in the Department of Public Charity House. In 1798 the library was transferred to Kazan (Imperial) School and then to Kazan University. Afterwards the manuscript was lost; being discovered only in the late XIX century by the historian A. I. Artemiev, it immediately became a subject of interest to specialists. A well-known historian N. P. Barsukov at the meeting of the Imperial Society of Ancient Literature Enthusiasts on April 19, 1885 presented a detailed description of the Armorial. Later, at the meeting of The Russian Genealogical Society on March 27, 1899 Prince M. S. Putyatin read a special report on the heraldic manuscript of A. T. Kniazev, acknowledging its uniqueness and offering to print copies of it, which subsequently led to the manuscript being delivered to St. Petersburg at the request and enquiry of the Society in December of the same year F[3]. The founder of scientific genealogy, L. M. Saveliev , who negatively evaluated the cognitive potential of Russian coats of arms on the whole and The General Armorial of Noble Families in particular, gave a rapturous description to Kniazev¬ís work following other historians A. I. Artemiev, Y. V. Arseniev and N. P. Barsukov in calling it "on … [Click Below for Full Description]

With this special set is loosely laid in contemporary review, which notes the merits of Rolleston's work on this and Pogany's drawings: "....Which are to be regarded less as illustrations rather than as aids to realising a common ideal. In these the use of soft colours, bold outline, and constant subordination of figures to large spaces of sky or foliage lift the tale into at least a cosmic atmosphere. Their technical beauty and cleverness demand more space than we can afford..."

DOYLE, Sir Arthur Conan.
London Hodder & Stoughton, 1912. First edition, first impression; 8vo; frontispiece and 7 plates, tissue guard at frontispiece, some foxing, heavier at extremities of text-block and terminal ff.; publisher's dark blue cloth blocked & titled in white and gilt, crease to spine, minor rubbing to extremities, overall a sharp, bright example. An attractive first edition example of The Lost World, perhaps the most celebrated Arthur Conan Doyle title outside the Sherlock Holmes canon. The depiction of central character Professor Challenger on the book cover is in fact Arthur Conan Doyle in disguise (he also posed with friends for the photographic frontispiece portraying Challenger and the other members of the exploring party). Doyle based the central character partly on Professor Rutherford whom he had known at Edinburgh, and partly on himself. This book edition was published on 15 October 1912, the serialisation in Strand Magazine having started in April the same year. Green & Gibson A37a [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Roosevelt, Theodore
1912. Fine condition with light horizontal fold. Theodore Roosevelt Typed Letter Signed. One page, on Pullman Private Car stationery, 5" x 7.8", [Maryland]; May 3, 1912. A to J.C. Elliott of Jacksonville, Illinois, concerning his recent victories in the 1912 Republican presidential primaries: Former president Roosevelt wrote this letter to J.C. Elliott (unidentified) from his private Pullman car "Pilgrim", while on a two-day campaign swing through Maryland, giving speeches in such places as Salisbury, Havre de Grace, and Baltimore. Although William Howard Taft was his handpicked successor to the presidency, Roosevelt and his progressive allies had become disenchanted with Taft. Taft not only replaced many of Roosevelt's cabinet, but also appeared to turn his back on the progressive agenda favored by the former president and his followers. Progressivism had risen in popularity in the state level and its adherents feared that Taft's policies were threatening its potential success at the national level. Roosevelt decided to join the race against Taft for the Republican nomination in 1912, entering the primary contests. As he noted in this letter offered here, he was victorious in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Nebraska, and Oregon. He ended up winning nine of the twelve primaries while Taft only won one. Yet when the Republicans held their national convention in Chicago from June 18 to June 22, Taft controlled the party machinery and received the nomination. Roosevelt was enraged and he and his supporters formed the Progressive Party (popularly known as the "Bull Moose" party), wh … [Click Below for Full Description]

SMITH, Clark Ashton
See Detailed Description Below. San Francisco: A.M. Robertson, 1912. First Edition, First Printing. The First Edition of the Author's First Book. THE AUTHOR'S PERSONAL COPY, with numerous corrections and additions by him throughout the text. Bound for the author in full brown morocco, heavily gilt, the spine with raised bands, inner doublures. The binding is original, the book was specially bound for the author. The condition is outstanding - remarkably so, considering that Smith lived in a remote cabin in the Sierras with no electricity and with wood heat. The best copy in the world, now housed in a beautiful white quarter-leather case designed & built by the noted bookbinder, Gray Parrot. Stunning. Item #310690 ¶ Impeccable provenance. This copy of THE STAR TREADER was originally purchased from Clark Ashton Smith by bookseller (and Smith's literary executor) Roy A. Squires in the 1950's. It was offered for sale by him in his LIST 75-3, on the occasion of the First World Fantasy Convention in Providence, 1975. This book was item number 2 on that list, preceded by H.P. Lovecraft's own copy of THE SHUNNED HOUSE, bound for him in full leather by R.H. Barlow. Suffice to say, the best copy in the world of the author's first book. [Attributes: First Edition]

Moran, Thomas.
1912. New York: 1912. Elephant folio chromolithograph print, 34 1/4 x 25", plus margins. In fine condition, beautifully archivally framed. § According to Graham Arader, this magnificent print was published by the American Lithography Company of New York City in an edition of 2,500 copies. "At the time, Moran was the nation's best known landscape painter, noted especially for his depictions of the Far West and its parks and monuments. The Santa Fe Railway was the first to lay a line to the Grand Canyon, in 1901. To promote tourism, Santa Fe officials later had copies of this lithograph framed and distributed to schools, libraries, civic organizations, and railroad customers throughout the country... To the great majority of Americans who did not have the resources or daring to travel to the West, Moran provided this image of the country's infinite potential as symbolized by its dramatic, unique landscape. The artist showed American expansion as a fated conclusion, a glorious destiny indelibly written in the literal stone of the country's landscape. ... Yet for all of his nostalgia, Moran was a realist. He recognized that the beauty of the West needed no embellishment, and his portrayals and views of the West presented it as it was." The Reese Co. adds of their example: "This majestic print is the largest and most dramatic of Thomas Moran's printed works. It was published by the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad in 1912, after the original oil commissioned for (and still owned by) the line. It shows a tremendous sweep of the scenery of the Grand Canyon from the Hermit R … [Click Below for Full Description]

Roosevelt, Theodore
1912. Progressive era "Battle Flag" from 1912 with a printed portrait of Theodore Roosevelt at the center surrounded by the text "Progressive/Roosevelt 1912 Battle Flag", with the initials "D & C" at the lower left. The flag measures 21 inches by 24 inches. Frustrated that he did not win the Republican nomination for the Presidency in 1912, Roosevelt founded the Progressive or the "Bull Moose" party in order to challenge the Republican incumbent William Howard Taft. Both would ultimately lose to Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Framed. An exceptional example. The Progressive Party was a third party in the United States formed in 1912 by former President Theodore Roosevelt after he lost the presidential nomination of the Republican Party to his former protege, incumbent President William Howard Taft. The new party was known for taking advanced positions on progressive reforms and attracting some leading reformers. After the party's defeat in the 1912 presidential election, it went into rapid decline, disappearing by 1918. The Progressive Party was popularly nicknamed the "Bull Moose Party" since Roosevelt often said that he felt "strong as a bull moose" both before and after an assassination attempt on the campaign trail. As a member of the Republican Party, Roosevelt had served as President from 1901 to 1909, becoming increasingly progressive in the later years of his presidency. In the 1908 presidential election, Roosevelt helped ensure that he would be succeeded by Secretary of War Taft. After Taft took office, he hewed closer to the conservative wing of the party and this and o … [Click Below for Full Description]

1912. Virginia Woolf stated in a Literary Work magazine: Being a child of literary intentions and passing much of time in the company of books, I have come to feel a sense of personal indebtedness to the publisher who brings out a readable volume. I have come, also, to feel a sense of per- sonal sorrow that the really readable volumes are so few and far between. But when, by pure and heavenly chance, 1 do come across so charming a little book as ** The Invisible Playmate," by William Canton, I can't help saying at least a simple "I thank you" to the publishers" in this case, J. Selwin Tait & Sons of New York" and feeling better for a fortnight or more.

Black leather over paper boards with "Morocco Cyclone April 21, 1912 published by Blassy Studio Brook, Indiana" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 12 sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.5" x 5.5" to 4.5" x 6.5" with some captions. Very good album with chips and tears with near fine photographs. A photo album of professional photographs taken by Blassy Studio in Brook, Indiana documenting the aftermath of the April 20-22, 1912 tornado outbreak in Indiana. The photos detail the destruction caused by the two day barrage of storms which results in 30 tornados in the Midwest, 10 of which were considered "violent." Decimated barns and houses as well as fields of debris and blown out windows are seen throughout the photos. One photo shows cows standing in the middle of their destroyed barn, another photo shows a group of children wandering through the debris. The tornados blew through Indiana and Illinois and according to a newspaper at the time the death toll in the area was thought to be around 100 people. An interesting collection of well composed photographs depicting the aftermath of an extreme round of storms.

The Sierra Buttles Mine operated from the time of the California Gold Rush until 1912. Gold-bearing quartz ledges were discovered in 1850, and first developed by the Reis brothers of San Francisco. By 1866 two mills were processing the ore produced from three ledges. An English syndicate purchased the mine by 1870, and by 1882 the mine had produced over 7 million dolllars of gold. In 1904 E. A and J. O. Hayes bought the operation and built a cyanide plant to enhance gold recovery. By 1907 profitability was questionable, and in 1912 what was once the major gold producer in the area was shut down. Today no sign of the mine's facilities remain.
