        Around the World in 30 Days; Or, the Greatest Trip Ever Made

      New York: Street & Smith, 1914 - A thrilling science fiction adventure by an author later to distinguish himself for his much-beloved stories about collies, beginning with LAD: A DOG (1919). Advanced transportation technology allows Terhune's heroes to complete Phileas Fogg's record-setting journey in less than half the time. Written to capitalize on the enormous popularity of the work of Jules Verne, who had died nine years earlier, the novel was serialized in five installments in Street & Smith's TOP NOTCH MAGAZINE between February and April, 1914, and issued as a pulp novel in the publisher's Adventure Library shortly afterwards. Terhune's popularity after the publication of LAD led Street & Smith to reissue the novel in 1925, and when copies of this title surface it is generally the reprint: the first edition is very seldom encountered. Read to pieces by generations of youthful admirers, few copies of this fragile publication have survived. A very good copy in illustrated wrappers. Housed in a custom chemise and clamshell case.

        1914 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT JOURNAL DETAILING THE CANALS SYSTEM OF NORTHEASTERN USA

      Coalport, Pennsylvania PA, USA 1914 - The unidentified author of this journal has created a fascinating study and detailed assessment of Canals in the north-eastern USA. We believe the writer is based in or near Coalport Pennsylvania as most of the charts and schedules relate to Coalport as the starting point. It is a pocket sized multi-ring notebook with 101 numbered pages and three extended pull out maps, an index and some printed articles about canals are glued in. It has drawings of canal boats. Important details are neatly underlined in red ink. The author spent a huge amount of time and attention into the details. It measures 3.25" by 5.5". The notebook cover is in very rough shape, there are a few pages that are no longer attached but all appear present and very legible. There is some age-toning evident. Lehigh, Delaware, Barge, Cape Cod, Panama, Morris are some of the canals mentioned. Some of the subjects are boat-canal dimensions, coal rates, tolls, aqueducts, distances between places, dams on the Lehigh, Tides +++. 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Letter of State Standing Up For American Rights During World War I, Drafted and Typed Out by President Wilson

      - Letter of State Standing Up For American Rights During World War I, Drafted and Typed Out by President Wilson.Text, notes and edits demonstrate AmericaÕs foreign policy architect at work.With the outbreak of World War I in August 1914, the first response of the American people and government was to remain neutral. The goal of neutrality continued until 1917, and the aim of American foreign policy was to remain out of the war and maintain the political and commercial rights of a neutral in the face of opposition from the belligerents. Britain, from the first day of the war, used its powerful navy to establish a blockade of Germany, and the Germans in turn tried to counter-blockade Britain by using U-Boats to sink shipping bound there. By the start of 1915, it was clear that the war would in part be a battle of commerce, with neutrals trying to trade with both sides caught squarely in the middle. The U.S. had a long history of merchant shipping issues with the British going back to before the War of 1812, and these now resurfaced. On February 4, 1915, Germany issued a War Zone Decree warning that the waters around Great Britain would be a danger zone for neutral shipping. In response, the U.S. government stated that Germany would be held strictly accountable if a German commander destroyed an American vessel and cost the lives of American citizens on the high seas. Being even-handed, the U.S. also made representations to Britain against using its flag improperly. Neither belligerentÕs reply was responsive, with GermanyÕs stating on February 16 that both mines and submarines would make the war zone unsafe and the best thing for neutrals would be to avoid it. Germany did, however, imply that she would give up submarine warfare if Britain would allow foodstuffs and raw materials to move into Germany without interference. The American Government believed it saw in the German proposal an opening for a successful negotiation with both belligerents with regard to the rights of neutrals. It sent Germany and Britain identical notes dated February 20 suggesting that they cease the use of all mines on the high seas. U-Boats were to be used against merchant ships only for the purpose of exercising the right to visit and search. Britain was to desist from its interference with the movement of foodstuffs into Germany, and these were to be distributed by agencies designated by the United States government. On March 1, Germany issued a qualified acceptance of these terms, though demanding broader importation rights and setting conditions on British merchant vessels. That very day, seemingly ignoring the U.S. note, Britain stepped up its blockade by announcing a measure to stop all movement of goods to or from Germany. The British put their intentions in writing, handing U.S. Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan a memorandum denouncing German submarine warfare and stating its goal as preventing Òcommodities of any kind from reaching or leaving Germany.Ó On March 15, Britain finally got around to answering, and rejecting, the U.S. letter of February 20. The British note stated that there was a blockade Òeffectively controlling by cruiser cordon all passage to and from Germany by sea,Ó and cited a plethora of justifications for the refusal, including illegal conduct by Germany and the ambiguity of GermanyÕs response to the American note. Enclosed with the March 15 response was an Order in Council issued on March 11, providing that no vessels sailing to Germany after March 1 would be allowed to proceed to a German port. Moreover, any vessel sailing for a neutral European port having aboard goods of German ownership or destination might be seized. Finally, the Order offered to relax the interference of Britain with commerce between America and European neutrals, if the European neutrals would persuade or force the steamship lines under their flags not to carry goods of German ownership or origin. BritainÕs note of March 1, its March 15 response [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [Fine Autograph Letter, Signed, as "Harry Collingwood," with a Two-page List of His Book Publications, and a Portrait Cabinet Photograph]

      Liverpool. 12 October 1914.. Three pages, on three panels of a folded quarto lettersheet. Horizontal fold from mailing, otherwise very good. Lancaster writes an American reader, who has written him about the series of nautical novels Lancaster published under the pseudonym, "Harry Collingwood" (a nom de plume he adopted in tribute to his hero, Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood). He encloses a list of his titles (an additional two pages, on two panels of another folded quarto lettersheet), and notes: "I am a little surprised to learn that so few of my books are known in the U.S.A. Is it that your countrymen do not care for sea stories, or is it that, from a sense of patriotism, they will only read American authors?" He details his lack of expertise at finding an American publisher "of good standing" as he has "never attempted to place any of my work on your side of the 'Pond' ...." He notes that the recipient ("Mr. Hassett" or "Harrett") has a connection with the CHICAGO DAILY NEWS, and indicates he would be greatly obliged if he had any advice on the matter. He highly recommends his forthcoming book, THE FIRST MATE: "The hero is of course British (our publishers practically insist upon this whenever it is possible), but the other principal characters are Americans, and I think Americans would find the book interesting. I may say that if I could come to a satisfactory agreement with an American House, I could supply two books, each of 100,000 words, per annum, and although my forte is of course sea stories, I have written others in which all the adventures occurred ashore." He signs the letter as "'Harry Collingwood'" (in quotes). Accompanied by a fine cabinet photograph (17 x 11 cm) of Lancaster by Maull & Fox, identified on the verso in ink, and dated 1898. Lancaster was the son of a Royal Navy Captain and was educated at the Naval College, Greenwich. He first shipped out at the age of 15, but had to set aside his aspirations toward a naval career due to severe myopia. In tandem with his eventual career as a marine engineer, he published 23 nautically based novels under the Collingwood pseudonym, including the prescient science fiction novel, THE LOG OF THE FLYING-FISH. A STORY OF AERIAL AND SUBMARINE PERIL AND ADVENTURE (1887).

        Two Portrait photographs of Junius Spencer Morgan, Jr. , as toddler and child, dated December 1894 and August 1898

      n.p., n.d.. (MORGAN, JUNIUS SPENCER, JR) Each 4 x 5-1/2 inches on studio card mounts, with name and date in ink. Fine . Charming photographs of the grandson of the legendary financier J. P. Morgan. The first portrait shows the young child (aged two) standing and holding a sailing ship (L. Alman, New York and Newport, R. I.). In the second (aged six), he is posed leaning against a stone bench before a rural backdrop (Bullingham, London). Eldest son of Jack Morgan, "Junius Spencer, Jr., graduated from Harvard in 1914. he served as a junior officer on a destroyer off the English coast in the war, an experience that left him with shattered nerves. Tall and extraordinarily handsome, with the face of a sensitive actor, he became a Morgan partner in 1919. Warmly approachable and possessed of a dry sense of humor, Junius was probably the nicest Morgan-but the most dismal businessman. ... Like his father and grandfather and brother, Junius became a commodore of the New York Yacht Club-the only certifiable Morgan activity that really fit him" (Chernow, The House of Morgan, p. 266)

        Cartoons of the Great War. World War One Album of Colorful Cartoons and Caricatures, possibly by a P.O.W

      1914(?)-1915/6. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo. 22.5 by 18 cm. 270 pp., almost all with one or more colorfully painted cartoons and caricatures depicting the early part of World War One, beginning in 1914 and possibly all the way through 1915. The album was made with a notebook with ruled lined paper. On most pages, the lines have been covered over, and are at most barely visible. & & One of the specific events alluded to is the sinking of the Aboukir, Hogue and Cressy by one German submarine, an event which occurred in September, 1914. The sinking of the Lusitania and chemical warfare are alluded to well into the album, which brings the album into the middle of 1915. It is possible the album runs into 1916 but not by much. The jingoistic, and non-subtle analysis manifest in the cartoons, does not give way to a weariness, a questioning, or disillusionment which would certainly have asserted itself later on in the war. & & The cover has a raised title, not fully legible anymore; from what can be made out, it was probably "Cartoons of the Great War". The identity of the artist is unknown; we were told he was a P.O.W., but there is no concrete evidence corroborating this and the assertion may be unverifiable. Other than the hearsay, support for the hypothesis, for that is what it is to us, comes from the unconventional materials used to produce the album. The paints used are not what someone with such an abiding interest in artwork would have chosen if he had the freedom to do so, but in a P.O.W. camp the artist would settle for what was on hand. The media used to paint the cartoons are various, but most unusual is the heavy use of an oil paint, or a house paint, which was frequently employed as a background, probably in part to blot out evidence that the artwork was applied to a lined notepaper. If these cartoons were done in a P.O.W. camp, the artist had to have been captured at the very outset of the war.& & Many of the cartoons are not really tied in to day-to-day events, but rather personalize and personify the war into a few stock characters -- the Kaiser, his sidekick of a fictional youthful son named Willie (the Crown Prince was named Wilhelm, but by the time of the war he was not only in his thirties, but also quite unlike this fictional incarnation), a lion representing Britain, John Bull, Uncle Sam, etc. -- who play things out in a Manichaean burlesque. And in this framework the bad guys are repeatedly bested, humbled and humiliated in the satisfying manner of animated cartoon villains. These simplifications are to some extent the diet everyone is fed during wartime, but would it not seem especially consistent with someone who might have been fed limited, and often, misleading information, by an enemy captor, and as an exercise by the artist to bolster his own and his colleagues' spirits? & & Yet one can not rule out that the album was kept by a soldier in the trenches, where too, the choice of artist’s tools one would expect to have been limited.& & Throughout the album the artist mines national stereotypes for humor, just as one would expect during wartime, and also during an era with few taboos in such patronizing merriment. Targets include Turkey, or the Ottoman Empire, and Austria-Hungary, as well as Germany. The cartoon captions can be obscure, their humor, lost on us; at times, we suspect, the captions might have come across as heavy-handed or clumsy even back when. Yet it should also be pointed out that much of the time the cartoons make their point with non-literal allegory in very clever ways. & & The imagery, unlike some of the text, holds up wonderfully well, and it is that we can feast on. One does not really have to know anything about the war, nor have an interest in the war, to enjoy the fancifulness and verve of the pictures. & & There are cartoons that refer to a channel tunnel, chemical gas warfare, Sinn Fein, Lord Kitchener, von Hindenburg, and on and on. Some of the best work is of caricatures of the leading figures in the war other than the Kaiser; or of the artist’s lampoons of alleged German cartoons; or a number of funny pieces that do not have a direct connection to the war. That said, a considerable amount of the album’s impact is cumulative, and it is the totality of creative energy and vision that make this album so special.& & The spine is somewhat cocked. The text block juts out a quarter inch from the binding. The binding is scuffed and has moderate to heavy wear. One leaf loose. A few leaves with minor damage. Very Good. Hardcover.& &

        Frederic Remington-illustrated poster for The Light of Western Stars

      No publisher, No place 1914 - A 1901 Frederic Remington illustration of a cowboy with the title and author printed at the top. Poster board, matted and framed behind glass. Matted to approximately 15" x 19". We have not examined the poster out of the frame, but the visible part of the image is about fine, with a tiny tear on the top, and a thin strip of very light tanning along the bottom, and with no other evidence of further damage behind the mat. The first edition of the book was published in 1914, which seems consistent with the age of the poster, although it might have been prepared for a contemporary reprint. Nice, large Remington image.

Original Portrait Col. Sam Steele. Samuel Benfield Steele 1851 - 1919 Handwritten on reverse by Harwood Steele, Son of Sam Steele: "35" Col. S B Steele Full dress Winnipeg about 1914" Photographer: Campbell's, Winnipeg, Ca. 1914 Neg # 10548. Major General Sir Samuel Benfield Steele, CB, KCMG, MVO (January 5, 1851 – January 30, 1919) was a famous member of the North West Mounted Police.He joined the local militia as a teenager and fought against the Fenians at the Battle of Ridgeway. He was sent west first to fight the Red River Rebellion of Louis Riel, but arrived after the Métis had surrendered. Steele had long been fascinated by the west, devouring the works of James Fenimore Cooper in his youth. He was especially interested in the First Nations, and spent his time in the west learning from them and the Metis. However he was recalled from Manitoba and based in Fort Henry in Kingston for the next few years.He was chosen to be one of the first members of the NWMP, being only the third officer sworn in. In 1873 he returned to Fort Garry with the new force and was put in charge of drilling the new recruits. Over the next few years he crisscrossed the prairies, before being assigned to NWMP headquarters to train new recruits.In 1881 he was assigned to meet with Sitting Bull, who fresh from defeating General Custer had moved into Canada and was demanding land for his people. Steele and a few officers met them and reached a peaceful agreement. This action won Steele great acclaim in the newspapers of the United States and was the beginning of his role as a public figure.In the North-West Rebellion Steele was dispatched with a small force. Missing the Battle of Batoche Steele and his force were sent to move against the last rebel force lead by Chief Big Bear. Steele and his two dozen Mounties defeated Big Bear's force at Loon Lake in the last battle ever fought on Canadian territory. The contributions of the NWMP to putting down the rebellion went largely ignored and unrewarded, to Steele's great annoyance. Steele spent the next ten years assigned to Fort McLeod, and at age 41 married Maria Harwood, eventually the couple had three children.In 1898 he was sent north to the Yukon to succeed Charles Constantine with policing during the Klondike Gold Rush. Initially, he was in charge of the customs posts at the Chilkoot Pass and White Pass, where he created the rule that no one would be allowed to enter without a ton of goods. Steele and his force made the Klondike Gold Rush into one of the most orderly events of its kind in history and made the police force famous around the world, which ensured its survival at a critical time when the force's dissolution was being debated in parliament.In 1900 he was second in command in Lord Strathcona's Horse, a Canadian light cavalry unit sent to South Africa during the Boer war and did so with distinction. Steele, however, disliked greatly what he was ordered to do by the British, which included burning towns and moving the populace to concentration camps.Steele was knighted in 1918 and was made a Companion of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George, and Member of the Royal Victorian Order.Canada's fifth tallest mountain, Mount Steele, is named after him.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      ("A Conan Doyle") to an unnamed correspondent (Dear Sir) 1 page with integral leaf the paper watermarked "Ancient Scottish Vellum" with large coat of arms, 7" x 4 1/4", Hindhead, Haslemere, ca. 1914-1920. Referring to a letter he wrote to 'The Times' and the help he has received from Germans in England since its publication, and saying that he is willing to answer further questions raised by his book. Very good.This letter possibly refers to Conan Doyle's work, The British Campaigns in Europe, his history of the First World War. A patriot in the traditional sense, he had volunteered and served in the Boer War. In his letters to The Times and Pamphlets such as To Arms, Conan Doyle expounded the moral case for war against Germany and was enormously influential.See Green & Gibson: B12, B13, B14, B15, B16, B18 for his several books and pamphlets on the subject of Germany and war.Doyle (1859-1930), Scottish-born physician and author; creator of master detective Sherlock Holmes, one of the literary world's most famous characters.

From the library of Zelia Nuttal and George M Foster. Limited to 500 copies. 1st edition. Cervantes de Salazar was one of the principal chroniclers who gathered data on the history and ethnography of Mexico. His most important book Cronica de la Nueva Espana (Chronicle of New Spain), written at the command of City Council. The manuscript of this work was sent by the author to Spain in 1567 with a request for the post of royal chronicler. This manuscript was uncovered in the early 1900s catalogued in the National Library of Madrid as an anonymous manuscript. the first volume was published in 1914 and the second and third in 1936. The Chronicle is fragmentary since the first part, which was to include the period up to the conquest of Yucatan, either was never written or was lost; and the second part, which was to be a history of the conquest, breaks off with Columbus sending Villafuerte and Sandoval to the Pacific Ocean. Cervantes de Salazar's sources were the Letters of Cortes; the memoirs of Alonso de Ojeda and Andres de Tapia, captains in Cortes' army; the Memoranda of Motilinia; the work of Lopez de Gomara; and the information gathered from others who had taken part in the conquest who were sill living in Mexico City twenty-five years later from whom he received useful information. The Chronicle is valued for its understanding and evaluation of the events it describes. Condition: "With compliments of the Hispanic Society" slip tipped in and slip from the Congresso de los Diputados tipped in to copy write page with Nuttall's name as receiving copy number three which is such labeled of 500 copies.
