        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. .

Original Signed Studio Portrait Col. Sam Steele. Signed: S B Steele 5th Jan 1915 Samuel Benfield Steele 1851 - 1919. Handwritten on reverse by Harwood Steele, Son of Sam Steele: "17" Col. S B Steele 'Staff in Blue' Winnipeg 1914" 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..

        [Manuscript]: "The Twilight of the Manikins: Verses Written during the Great War"

      New York. Feb. 1915- Feb. 1919 [with later corrections and manuscript emendations]. Octavo. Red cloth. Over 200 pages of manuscript war poetry written in a publisher's "dummy" volume (that is, a bound volume issued with only blank pages, the book title "The Long Gallery" by Eva Lathbury and publisher Henry Holt stamped on the cloth). Trent hand-numbered the 208 pages of poetry, the verses almost entirely in holograph (a few printed pieces pasted in and amended). The volume shows a great deal of work with portions cut and pasted in later holograph (and occasionally dated) corrections and edits, etc.Trent was born in Richmond, Virginia in 1862, the son of a surgeon in the Confederate Army of distinguished Virginia ancestry. In 1880 he began studying at the University of Virginia where he became the editor of the Virginia University Magazine. He did post-graduate study at Johns Hopkins University, after which he accepted an offer to teach at Sewanee, The University of the South where he became a professor of English and the acting professor of history from 1888 until 1900, and from 1893 was dean of the academic department. He founded and edited The Sewanee Review (now the longest continuously published literary quarterly in the U.S.). He also created the Sewanee Historical Society at the University of the South. In 1900, he became professor of English literature at Columbia University where he devoted himself to the study of Daniel Defoe. He edited the Cambridge History of American Literature, and published many books on literary historical subjects, many Southern, including William Gilmore Simms and Robert E. Lee.Trent published five of the earliest poems represented here from 1915 in The Fatherland and The Texas Review, but this voluminous collection of intelligent literary poetry devoted to the cataclysmic conflict appears to be largely unpublished. .

        The Log of the Snark

      Macmillan Company, New York 1915 - 487+[5 ad] pages with 20 photo plates, including frontispiece. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5 3/4")issued in light blue cloth decorated and lettered in gilt. Advance review copy with circular perforated stamp stating such on title page. First Edition. Charmian Kittredge London (November 27, 1871-January 14, 1955) was Jack London's second wife. After divorcing Bess Maddern London in 1904, London married Charmian Kittredge the following year. Biographer Russ Kingman called Charmian "Jack's soul-mate, always at his side, and a perfect match." She was the author of several books about her life with Jack London: The Log of the Snark, Our Hawaii and The Book of Jack London. The last is considered by scholars to be an important but flawed source of biographical information on London: Clarice Stasz calls it "an uneven account that omits Jack's illegitimacy, yet has surprisingly frank information nonetheless concerning his personality." Their relationship became the subject of a book, Clarice Stasz' American Dreamers. The couple had no children who survived them. One died soon after being born, and another pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. Shortly after the death of Jack London, Charmian had an affair with Harry Houdini. A PBS source cites an Houdini biographer, saying: Most of the evidence of their affair, convincingly reconstructed by Houdini biographer Kenneth Silverman, comes from brief entries in Charmian’s diaries. They saw each other over several weeks early in 1918 while Charmian was living in New York, where Houdini was starring in the patriotic World War I extravaganza, "Cheer Up." Charmian wrote that after they saw each other a few times, Houdini made a "declaration" that "rather shakes me up." They became intimate a short time later. She wrote that one visit by Houdini had "stirred me to the deep," and that he apparently felt the same, declaring, "I’m mad about you," and "I give all of myself to you." Throughout, she refers to him alternately as "Magic," her "Magic Man," or "Magic Lover." As intense as it apparently was, their attachment did not last long. Charmian, the "New Woman" whose marriage to London had included open sexual experimentation, never stopped seeing other men. Condition: Minor wear at extremities, Embossed ownership stamp also on title page, small number and letter 4A at front end paper corner; else near fine without jacket.
