John Maddock Company, Newport, Rhode Island; England, 1912. A collection of nine pieces of Suffrage dinnerware consisting of two teacups, two saucers, two dinner plates, two bread and one berry bowl, each with the manufacturing mark of the John Maddock Company of England on the bottom except for the teacups. All items are very good with small chips, slight repairs, some discoloration, and the lettering on one teacup bleeding a little. A stoneware dinner set commissioned by Alva Vanderbilt Belmont from the John Maddock Company of England with "Votes for Women" imprinted in blue on each piece. Alva had the pieces made for her Newport cottage, Marblehouse, which she built while married to her first husband, William Kissam Vanderbilt. After her second husband Oliver Hazard Perry Belmont died in 1908, Alva reopened Marblehouse in order to hold fundraising events for the Suffrage Movement. According to historian Janet W. Buell, Alva "made the attainment of votes for women her paramount objective after becoming widowed in 1908." This set according to *Women's Suffrage Memorabilia* by Kenneth Florey, represents the "most celebrated of all American suffrage dinnerware." Alva's stoneware was used for open houses at Marblehouse to raise funds for suffrage causes. Florey writes, "guests were charged five dollars to tour the grounds.and listen to a suffrage lecture." After opening her Chinese Teahouse on the grounds of Marblehouse, Alva hosted the Council of Great Women Conference in July of 1913 where the dinnerware was present. Additionally, pieces of the stoneware were sold out of th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tarbell, Ida M.
New York: Macmillan, 1912. First edition. Fine. Original green publisher's cloth binding with bright gilt to spine and front board. Lacking the scarce dust jacket. Ownership signature of Jann Benedict to front endpaper. Bookseller's ticket of Johnson's Bookstore to rear pastedown. ix, [1, blank], 242, [6, publisher's adverts]. A square, bright, complete copy of this influential work on women's paid and unpaid labor. Ida Tarbell became the most famous journalist of her time for her groundbreaking expose on Standard Oil and its violations of U.S. anti-trust acts. Outraged by John D. Rockefeller's unethical business methods, she set out to use journalism to bring the truth to the public and the courts, which resulted in the government prosecuting and breaking apart Standard for its violations of the Sherman Act. Following this success, Tarbell founded the American Magazine in 1906 and authored biographies of influential people of her day. As World War I neared, however, Tarbell's focus shifted toward women -- in particular, the plight of working women left behind by fathers and husbands. It is from this work that The Business of Being a Woman emerges; it encourages readers to find balance between women's traditional domestic roles and those possibilities extending from increased access to education and employment. Yet Tarbell also acknowledges that imbalance, uneasiness, and impatience also foment important changes -- and that women have always played key roles in these revolutions "from Eve to Emmeline Pankhurst." Fine.

Harrisburg & Philadelphia: Various Imprints, ca.1912-1918. Diverse archive consisting of 27 items, which provide key insights into the struggle for women's suffrage in the state of Pennsylvania. Given the ownership evidence of the address book, and the rubber-stamping to several of the handbills, the materials in the archive were likely gathered and held by a member of the Equal Franchise Society of Philadelphia. A proliferation of local suffrage societies emerged in Philadelphia in the early 1900's, representing various constituencies within the city. The Equal Franchise Society of Philadelphia, founded in 1909, was among the more prominent groups, drawing its membership primarily from Philadelphia society women who were tirelessly committed to passing an amendment to the state constitution. While the state senate and house both passed suffrage bills in 1913 and 1915, when the suffrage referendum was presented before Pennsylvania voters in 1915, it was not approved, with the 'nays' winning by less than 60,000 votes. A substantial portion of the printed materials within the archive drew attention to the issues surrounding the November 2, 1915 vote.Caroline Katzenstein (1888-1968) was an American suffragist, ac tivist, and advocate for equal rights. Born in Warrenton, North Carolina, she spent her early life in her home state, moving to Philadelphia's Powelton Village neighborhood in 1907, after the death of her father. She became involved in the women's suffrage movement in her early 20's, serving the various Philadelphia suffrage societies in different capacities. After s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Inside pastedown with stamp of "Gabriel Moulin, photo., S.F. Calif." Contains 27 large linen backed gelatin silver photographs measuring 9.75" x 7.5", all but one captioned in the negative. An enterprising child has utilized the unprinted linen backs to scribble in pencil, now mostly erased but for some ghost scribbles, rear hinge partially detached, very good or better with the photographs at least near fine. The first couple of images are shots of the First National Bank Building, Realty Union, in Oakland, with the balance being street scenes in Oakland, and with single images from Emeryville, Berkeley, Alameda, Melrose, San Leandro, and Hayward, and which seems to exhibit a singular fascination with trolly or cable cars which are visible in several images. Born in 1872, Moulin became an accomplished professional photographer before opening his own studio in 1909 and was one of the most prolific and accomplished photographers of San Francisco and the Bay Area. His sons followed him in the business and the studio continues to maintain an archive of Bay area images that spans more than a century.

Folding map printed in red and black. Binding sometime expertly restored, extremities rubbed, a touch of sunning along head of front board, else firm and square, a few pencil annotations, light marginal toning, else internally clean. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed by the author on the half-title "A mon collegue D. Parodi, Bien cordialement, E. Durkheim". The recipient, Dominique Parodi (1870-1955), was among Durkheim's collaborators on their journal Année sociologique, subsequently the General Inspector of Public Instruction in France from 1919-1934, where he presided over the diffusion of durkheimian ideas in the schools, and later editor of the Revue de métaphysique et de morale from 1935-1955. This sociological study of religion is one of Durkheim's most influential works. "In his last great work, The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life, Durkheim gave his most compelling demonstration of the structuralist method, tracing relationships between social organization, religious beliefs, and such fundamental categories of thought as space, time, and causation. He seemed to have brought about the 'sociologization of everything'" (Thompson). Loosely inserted is a sheet with two portrait attempts and a few hand-writte … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eugenics Archive-- Harry H. Laughlin & Cold Spring Harbor 20 publications, c 1912-1940; including mimeographed & material inscribed to Laughlin; With Photos relating to Gregor Mendel. A rare & substantial collection to have survived the dispersal of Laughlin's papers over half a century ago. Harry Hamilton Laughlin (1880-1943) , a prominent figure of the American eugenics movement between 1910 and 1940, was a prolific writer, ardent supporter of forced sterilization, & longtime superintendent of the influential Eugenics Record Office (ERO) in Cold Spring Harbor, New York, a largely autonomous division of the Carnegie Institution. Laughlin was hired by Charles Davenport in 1910 to head the Carnegie Institution's Station for Experimental Evolution at Cold Spring Harbor, New York--its first mission was to identify the most defective and undesirable Americans, those in need of sterilization, "criminals, rapists, idiots, feeble-minded, imbeciles, lunatics, drunkards, drug fiends, epileptics, syphilitics, moral and sexual perverts, and diseased and degenerate persons." For decades, Laughlin and the ERO aggressively promoted an agenda that helped shape government policies regarding anti-immigration, compulsory sterilization, and "racial cleansing," within the U.S. and abroad. The movement reached its zenith in the early 1930's, with international conferences and generous media coverage, but the "horrors of the Nazi application of eugenics sealed the fate of the American movement, and the ERO was closed in 1939."

RICHMOND, Paul James
1912. Two volumes. Original typescript logs of adventures undertaken by a group of young men along the Illinois-Iowa border, the first on foot, the other by boat, both interspersed with original black and white photographs and two cyanotypes. The photos are clear and well-executed. Descriptions as follows: 1. *Log Book of the Ankle Express, August 15-20, 1912*. Gray paperwraps, cloth tape spine, with title printed on the front cover, and a small cut-out photo of the "Ankle Express" knapsack carried by the group. Measuring 8.25" x 6". [41], (2) pp. of typescript, rectos only, approximately 7000 words, with 35 photos laid down (30 incorporated in the text; five on two pages at the end). Laid in are two small "calling cards," with Richmond's name penned in stylized script; Richmond's bookplate tipped in to the inside of the front cover. The first log book describes a hike by Paul James Richmond and three of his friends, from Lacon, Illinois to Davenport, Iowa from August 15-20, 1912. The group of four (apparently high school friends), calling itself the "Ankle Express" journeyed by foot, and occasionally via a friendly auto ride to their destination, a trip of some 114 miles. Both the journals are by Richmond, though only the second one bears his name under the title. He is probably also responsible for much of the photography, showing candid scenes of the group and the people and places they encounter along the way. Richmond and his friends A.T. Stephens, A.W. Ford, and B.B. Grieves embarked on their "Ankle Express" hike in the summer of 1912. Each man had an accompanying tit … [Click Below for Full Description]

An excellent copy with a light stain on the back cover. Inscribed to (Lady) Frieda Harris from Anna and Charles, 1912 with a note to "read pages 119-120.". First edition of this wonderful fantasy, an Irish fairy tale for adults. According to Graeme K. Talboys of Grumbooks, it is a story that is "comical, witty, philosophical, spiritual, and whimsical, sometimes in a single sentence. It tells of the events set in motion when a philosopher gives advice to a farmer that leads to some Leprechauns losing their crock of gold." Stephens (1882-1950) "was a poet and novelist whose work is steeped in the folklore and mythology of his native land. Although little known these days, his literary worth was recognised in his lifetime, not just by the public, but his contemporaries in the literary world. Indeed, Joyce asked Stephens to complete Finnegans Wake if Joyce was unable to do so" (Talboys). Lady Frieda Harris (1877-1962) was an artist, occult magician and associate and friend of Aleister Crowley. She is best known for her design of Crowley's Thoth tarot cards.

Lovis Corinth wird am 21.7.1858 in der Stadt Tapiau in Ostpreußen (heute Gwardejsk, Russland) geboren. Bereits auf dem Gymnasium in Königsberg wird sein Interesse an der griechischen und römischen Mythologie sowie an den christlichen Geschichten der Bibel geweckt. Ab 1876 besucht Lovis Corinth die Kunstakademie in Königsberg, er studiert bei Otto Günther, der ihn mit der Weimarer Freilichtmalerei bekannt macht. 1880 wechselt er auf die Münchner Akademie. Arbeiten der Münchner Zeit belegen seine Orientierung an der naturalistischen Malweise des Kreises um Wilhelm Leibl. 1883 reist Lovis Corinth mit seinem Vater nach Italien, 1884 ist er für drei Monate in Antwerpen, wo er Malunterricht bei Paul Eugène Gorge nimmt. 1884-1887 studiert Corinth in Paris an der Académie Julian. Anschließend reist der Künstler nach Berlin, wo wohl 1887/88 das erste Selbstporträt entsteht, dem im Laufe der Jahre zahlreiche weitere folgen werden. 1891-1899 lebt Corinth als freier Maler in München, er gehört dort der Sezession an. Nachdem er im Winter 1898/99 Max Liebermann und Walter Leistikow kennenlernt, reift in ihm der Entsc … [Click Below for Full Description]

1912. A collection of 32 original photographs from F.N. Barrett, editor of *The American Grocer*, and 25 pages of clippings from a published article detailing his trip to the Panama Canal in early 1912. The collection is composed of 22 loose photographs, measuring 5.5" x 3.5"; seven panoramic photographs, measuring 10.5" x 3.5"; and 11 additional photographs, measuring 5.5"x 3" and 4" x 3.25", tipped onto loose pages. All very good with some light wear. Also included are 25 pages of magazine clippings paralleling Barrett's journey, tipped onto stationery for The Grocery and Allied Trade Press of America, as well as one tiny tintype. Barrett journeyed from New Orleans to Panama by way of Costa Rica with another business professional, a U.S. official referred to as "the Senator," and "the Deacon," who had a "predilection to study ethnology." The accompanying article describes the voyage; each stop, including the landscape, local residents, marketplaces (giving particular detail to the American goods found: Campbell's, Franco-American, Beech-Nut, etc.); and details of the Panama dig: number of men employed, soil and rock moved, and costs of the project. The photos were taken at many of the stops along the way, with images of Barrett and his fellow travelers; a coffee plantation; native peoples, including a "Hindoo Picture Maker" (or photographer); various buildings and ruins in Panama; and canal construction. A nice travelogue during the years of American expansion in the early part of the 20th Century, from an interesting perspective.

New York, 1912. Complete with index and errata, frontispieces, memorandum slip tipped in at page 257 in Vol. III. With 27 colored plates (after J. Wolf, Smit and Keulemans), and 135 black and white plates. Original blue buckram, gilt lettering on spine; despite some fading on the biding, a fine, clean copy from the libraries of University of Kansas with its blind-stamp on the title page of Vol. I and Dr. James M. Dolan Jr., director of collections for the San Diego Zoological Society, with his blind-stamp on all title pages. First edition of one of the greatest works on the classification and taxonomy of the Primates order in a period when no institution in the world contained a collection sufficiently large to permit a work like this. Over a period of five years, Elliot analyzed and reviewed all the existing primate species and subspecies, here describing about six hundred species. He travelled extensively to visit the museums and zoological gardens of Europe and the East, including the British Museum, the National Museum of the Jardin des Plantes in Paris, and the Natural History Museum in Calcutta. The author offers first a general review of the species and order, with its literature and geographical distribution, then a full description of each with measurements is provided as well as an account of their habits. Elliot notes that the illustrations of the skulls have been enabled with the new methods and instruments invented by the special photographer of the American Natural History Museum, Mr. Abram Anderson. The colored illustrations are a selection from those publish … [Click Below for Full Description]

India, 1912. A group of 45 black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring between 2.5" x 3.5" to 3.5" x 5.5," some captioned on the verso. Roughly half the images are tipped on black album pages and with the rest in mylar photo pockets, and all bradbound to a stiff cardboard sheet. The photos are near fine with some edgewear. A photo album of British expatriates in India between the years 1910 and 1912. The album begins with a group of men hunting with views of their camp and the men with the skins of tigers and lions. The men are seen in candids with Indians and posing in tents with their dogs and at an outdoor table set up for a meal. The album continues with photos of a trip to the Afghan border in a horse-drawn carriage and a wealthy woman being transported in a chair. A small photograph shows the Royal Pavilion during the Delhi Durbar, when King George V was crowned King-Emperor of India. There are images of city markets with pedicabs and rickshaws as well as snake charmers and Bazaars with fruit sellers, a dentist, and barber. Another photo shows military units competing in a "tug of war" and sack race. An interesting collection of British expatriates in India complete with hunting and travel throughout the country.
