        Passing of the Armies

      New York & London: Putnams, 1915. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. From commanding the 20th Maine (whose actions were recalled in Michael Shaara's historical fiction novel The Killer Angels and the 1993 movie Gettysburg) and earning the Medal of Honor at Little Round Top to the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox, Colonel (later General) Chamberlain participated in many of the Civil War's pivotal moments. Posthumously published after his post war career as Governor of Maine and president of Bowdoin College, this book deserves to be in any serious Civil War collection. Pencil gift inscription "1918" on free end paper, wear to head/tail of spine and bumping to corners. Text appears to be unread and is near perfect after almost a century.

        BEDTIME BILLY (code number B457)

      Valentine & Sons, Ltd., Dundee & London 1915 - Attwell, Mabel Lucie. BEDTIME BILLY (code number B457). Dundee & London: Valentine & Sons, Ltd., circa 1915. First edition. Narrow folio - 4-5/8" x 13-11/16". Full color pictorial stiff card wrappers cut around the shape of a cute little Attwell boy dressed in striped pajamas with moveable arms rivetted in place. The wrappers exhibit minor rubbing around the die cut outline of the child, a crease across the neckline, a crease across the forehead right at Billy's hairline and a small crease near the rivet on each of his arms. This book is a very desirable, hard to find Attwell book in very nice shape. [16]pp. The book tells the story of Billy and how proud he is of his new pajamas and what trouble his pride gets him into. The good news is that Billy's troubles all occurred in a dream and he learns from his dream not to be so proud so his lesson was rather easily learned. Every other page has a full page black and white and red illustration by Mabel Lucie Attwell of Billy and his dolly friends including a Gollywog. Internally, there is minor offsetting to a few of the illustrations for what is still a lovely copy of the book. The condition of the book is VERY GOOD. Extremely rare.

An economist and poet, he later served as executive secretary of the American Zionist Congress.

        Jessie Willcox Smith Autograph Letter

      - Four pages. "Cogslea," Mar. 26th. n.d. (ca. 1915). Interesting letter to a Mrss Ingersoll, possibly Frances E. Ingersoll, a fellow illustrator who had some illustrations in a St. Nicholas issue in 1913. Smith writes, "My Dear Miss Ingersoll, I received the enclosed yesterday from "The Century." Am so sorry-- Don't you want more to try Scribners- Would it not seem worth while to you to have them publish the story- then write out any illustrations as possibly only one- The truth of the matter is that my pictures cost a good deal and they are a little choosy about using them- Suppose you tell Ann Chapin to let you know direct & then return the the M.S. to ???? if they do not keep it- as it is unnecessary to have it sent dir [sic] to me- Wishing you all succes the next time. I am Cordially Yours, Jessie Willcox Smith." A wonderful four page letter on one octavo folded sheet. Letters by Jessie Willcox Smith are extremely rare, and this one shows her interest and kindness in responding to a solicitation for illustrations, and at the same time gives good indication how sought after and restrictive her publisher's were with respect to engaging work. Near fine.

        [Stock Book]: Triangle Distributing Corporation Preferred

      New York: W.N. Perrin & Company. [circa 1915]. Film corporation stock book. Oblong octavo. Green boards with red canvas spine and gilt lettering. Wear to the extremities, staple holes on the front endpapers and light tidemarks, 45 of 50 stock certificates still attached along with the receipts of four others, very good plus. A stock book for the Triangle Distributing Corporation, the distribution arm of the Triangle Film Corporation, the first vertically integrated film production company, founded by D.W. Griffith, Mack Sennett, and Thomas Ince in 1915. The idea was that by producing feature-length films with the industry's premiere talent, including Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., and others, Triangle could charge more per picture. The studio produced several notable films but mismanagement and losses from Griffith's epic Intolerance doomed the venture by 1918. Accompanied by a copy of the book, Dreams for Sale: The Rise and Fall of the Triangle Film Corporation by Kalton C. Lahue. An interesting document from the nascent days of silent films. .
