        British Columbia - Sixty Years of Progress: A History *SIGNED, NUMBERED AND UNREAD, FULL LEATHER-BOUND COPY*

      British Columbia: British Columbia Historical Association. Hardcover. Number 216 of only 350 signed copies of this full leather-bound edition. Signed by co-author R.E. Gosnell. "Few publications, if any, of similar size and excellence have been produced in Canada..." - From Editor's Foreward. Part One is made up of 210 pages and eighteen chapters which constitute "... a survey of events from the earliest times down to the Union of the Crown Colony of British Columbia with the Dominion of Canada." Part Two is "... a history, mainly political and economic, of the Province since Confederation up to the present time." Part One is preceded by dozens of tissue-protected black and white portraits of individuals influential in the early history of the province, complete with their brief biographies upon the tissue. Part One is likewise followed by dozens of tissue-protected portraits of "Leading men in judicial and other capacities." Part Two is comprised of eighteen chapters over 226 pages, plus 5 pages of addenda. This part is again followed by dozens of tissue protected portraits of "Some of the men conspicuous as present day factors in development." Top edge gilt. Embossed decorations upon front board and back strip. Crisp gilt lettering upon backstrip. Marbled endpapers. Unread. Exceptionally clean, bright, and unmarked with no wear. Handsome suede leather exterior appears virtually as fresh as the day it was applied over 90 years ago. More a historical monument than a book, this majestic tome (over 14lb in weight and measuring 13" high by 10.5" wide by almost 4" thick) is ideally suited to life as a library showpiece or as a magnificent gift, particularly to a British Columbian of distinction. The vintage and exceedingly fine condition of this copy easily rank it as one of the most impressive volumes we have ever offered. . Fine. 1913. Limited Edition.

Vielleicht hätte ich deutlicher reden sollen. Ich will es also nachtragen: I: Den gewisse Vortrag 'Aus meiner Werkstatt' will ich nicht halten, weil ich der Ansicht bin, die Neigung des Wiener Volkes gehe ohnedies auf's Persönliche, statt aufs Sachliche und es wäre daher richtig, diese Neigung zu unterdrücken; nicht aber, sie heranzubilden.

        North American Indians Being Letters And Notes On Their Manners, Customs, And Conditions, Written During Eight Years' Travel Amongst The Wildest Tribes Of Indians In North America, 1832-1839

      Philadelphia: Leary, Stuart and Company, 1913. A major anthropological study by "one of the most admirable observers of manners who ever lived among the aborigines of America." (Alexander von Humboldt) The American artist visited a total of forty-eight native American tribes on his extensive tour of the great American West, and executed some six hundred paintings, including portraits of aboriginals in full native dress, views of their villages and wigwams, and portrayals of their games, dances, religious ceremonies, buffalo hunting and other amusements. The present narrative vividly relates his adventures, and faithfully records the manners and customs of the Blackfoot, Cree, Ojibway, Sioux, Pawnee, Osage, Chinook, Cherokee and other tribes; of special interest is the section on the Mandans of the Upper Missouri, who were annihilated by smallpox in 1837. The numerous illustrations were copied and reduced for the engraver by Catlin himself, from his original paintings. The first edition was published in 1841 with engraved plates, and the first with plates printed in colour in 1876. cfHowes C-241. cfField 260. cfSabin 11536-37. cfStreeter III 1805. cfWagner-Camp 84. 2 Volumes. large 8vo. pp. ix, [1 leaf], 298; ix, [1 leaf], 303, [1]. with half-titles. 3 chromolithographed maps (1 folding) & 176 (of 177) chromolithographed plates. lacking plate 78 (never bound in).

        In Memoriam. Miss Emily Wilding Davison, B.A

      [London, Philp & Sons, T.V., Harlesden, 1913]. folded 8vo. brochure (19 x 13 cms), (4)pp., incorporating an oval photograph of Miss Davison set within a laurel wreath border, all four pages lined in black. Folded as issued and a fine, fresh, copy. An item of suffragette memorabilia of great rarity and of great symbolic significance. As a martyr to the cause, Emily Wilding Davison (1872-1913) holds a permanent place in the history of the suffragette movement, and therefore in the story of women's liberation. Davison had joined the WSPU in 1906 and soon became a highly active member, contributing numerous articles and reviews to the suffragette newspaper, Votes for Women,> until December 1911. 'However, in keeping with her consistent rejection of authority, she soon fell out of favour with the WSPU leadership over her independent and unauthorized programme of militant actions. Davison notably hid in the House of Commons three times, including in April 1911 when she spent the night in a cupboard near the crypt chapel in order to avoid participating in the census. She was imprisoned eight times, for offences including obstruction, assault, stone-throwing, breaking windows, and setting fire to pillar boxes, during which she went on hunger strikes, suffered solitary confinement and force feeding, barricaded herself in her cell, had a hosepipe turned on her, and attempted suicide as a protest against the mistreatment of her fellow suffragette prisoners. ...... Among Emily Davison's close friends were Rose Lamartine Yates, Elinor Penn-Gaskell, Edith Mansell-Moullin, and Mary Leigh—all prominent and active members of the suffrage movement. Sylvia Pankhurst, in The Suffragette Movement > (1931), describes her as ?'tall and slender, with unusually long arms, a small narrow head and red hair. Her illusive, whimsical green eyes and thin, half-smiling mouth, bore often the mocking expression of the Mona Lisa?' (Crawford, The women's suffrage movement>, 160). She never married and had no children. On 22 June 1912, after throwing herself onto a staircase at Holloway prison, Emily Davison told the medical officer that she had done so because she felt ?'that a tragedy was wanted?' (Hansard 5C, 25 June 1912, 216). However, she is usually remembered as the ?'suffragette martyr?' for her last protest at the Epsom Derby in June 1913. As the horses rounded Tattenham Corner she ducked under the railing and ran out onto the course in front of the king's horse, Anmer, which struck her with its chest and knocked her down. Among the articles found in her possession were two WSPU flags, a racecard, and a return train ticket to Victoria. She remained unconscious for four days and died on 8 June 1913 at Epsom Cottage Hospital as a result of a fracture to the base of the skull. The coroner recorded a verdict of death ?'due to misadventure?'. It is not known whether she intended to commit suicide. Queen Mary's first thought was for ?'poor Jones?', the jockey, and she referred to Davison as ?'the horrid woman?' (Pope-Hennessy, [Queen Mary, 1867-1953>], 467). A public funeral was held in London on 14 June 1913. Emily Davison's body was taken from Epsom and escorted, by a large and spectacular procession, from Victoria to St George's Church, Bloomsbury, where a memorial service was held, and afterwards to King's Cross where the body was entrained for Northumberland for burial at the parish church of St Mary's, Morpeth, on 15 June.' [Vera De Campli San Vito in ODNB]. The present brochure is a flattering posthumous eulogy to Emily Davison. It comprises a portrait and brief biographical note (on p.1), a long essay (on p.2) headed Why did she stop the King's Horse?, A petition to the King> (on p.3), and a programme note (on p.4) about the memorial service. Davison's death was, of course, a gift for the suffragette movement and was milked for all it was worth. 'The yielding up a life is the highest and most eloquent proof of love for others that human beings have it in their power to give - only the very strongest and most urgent reasons can call for such a sacrifice. Had Miss Davison such strong and urgent reasons? Yes, for deep down in her heart burned the knowledge of the intolerable wrongs from which women are suffering'.
