        JULIA WARD HOWE 1819 - 1910

      Boston & New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1915. First Edition. Hardcover. A Fine copy with a Very Good example of the printed white dustwrapper. Volume 1 only of two volumes in original cloth-backed boards and the scarce dustwrapper. One of 450 numbered copies of the Large-Paper Edition with a lettered (A W. S.) leaf of Howe's unsigned AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT tipped in by the publisher, this example with 23 lines including some exceptional content on women's rights. In full: "It is not natural for women to make their lives entirely secondary to and dependent upon those of man. Nature, who divides her offices so equally between the sexes, nowhere gives any indication of an inferior intention or position for the mothers of living things. On the contrary, it is natural for the male animal to show a certain respect and tenderness for his female companion, while she busies herself principally with the arduous duties of rearing her tender brood. The [?] of the him-her [?] is proverbial. Among insects, the female is usually stronger than the male, a fortunate fact, since to her belongs the office of finding food for the [?] family." Illustrated with plates and portraits, including a facsimile manuscript of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." Winner of the 1917 Pulitzer Prize for Biography.

        The Pilgrims of Hope and Chants for Socialists

      London: Longman's, Green & Company, 1915 - With a loosely inserted New Year's greeting card from May Morris, and the envelope addressed to Quinn in her hand and postmarked 1 Jan [19]16. The book, bound by Katharine Adams, who was a friend of May Morris, is inscribed "To John Quinn from May Morris New Year 1916." A choice association: Quinn, whose collection included several manuscripts of William Morris, was apparently the love of May's life, but Quinn lost interest in her though May tried until 1917, unsuccessfully, to continue the affair. This book was retained by Quinn's heir, his sister Julia, during the dispersal of Quinn's vast collections in 1923-4 (MORRIS, MAY) 12mo. . Full dyed black pigskin, upper cover with JQ lettered in gilt in a roundel semé with dots, by Katharine Adams (signed with her initials and device on lower turn in). Spine worn.

        Two Journals of the Voyage of the Revenue Cutter Commodore Perry from New York to San Francisco, December 1894 - April 1895

      Two vols. 4to ruled journals. About 125 pages of manuscript entries, and about 45 photographs. Following the American Revolution the Revenue Marine was created for the purpose of collecting and securing maritime revenues. When the US Navy came on the scene the Revenue Cutter Service, under the supervision of the US Treasury, took over the duties of the old Revenue Marine, until it became the US Coast Guard in 1915. The "Commodore Perry", a 165-foot, 282-ton, iron-hulled, single-screw, steam-powered brigantine entered service in 1884. Her original station was Lake Erie, but she made one major ocean voyage when she sailed from New York to San Francisco in 1894. There she served off the west coast and in Alaskan waters for the remainder of her career. She was lost on Tonki Point off St. Paul Island in 1910, although all hands on board were saved. The first journal in this lot is a 47 page record of the entire New York - San Francisco cruise, written by one of the officers, probably an engineer (he takes extra note of mechanical matters). It is a detailed account containing such information as the loss of the master-at-arms overboard (never recovered) and the fact that the Captain's daughter Josie was along for the ride (seasick). They called at several ports in the Caribbean and the eastern and western coasts of South America, and these shoreside episodes are recorded in detail - in Montevideo he exclaims, "I never saw so many handsome ladies." etc... In February, rounding the Horn, they were struck by the predicatble gale, and an exciting account follows.The ship, it seems, had an unfortunate propensity to roll. The writer also gives us a list of the officers of the "Perry", from which we can deduce that he is Chief Engineer George C. DeReamer... Because Assistant Engineer George M. DeReamer kept the second journal in this lot. This second DeReamer goes into even more detail than the first journalist - noting for example that the master-at-arms (who went overboard on Christmas Eve) "was addicted to the use of morphine and other powerful drugs. So that it is possible that having ran out of his supply and being unable to get any more, he committed suicide by jumping overboard." He also records the appearance of "Neptune and his Retinue" when they crossed the line, and other details of shipoboard life and liberty ashore. Unfortunately he seems to have written himself out after 75 pages of verbiage, because the account stops short on January 31, in Montevideo - without once mentioning George C. DeReamer or explaining the relationship between two men with such an unusual surname. The two journals are accompanied by about 40 albumen prints measuring 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches, obviously taken on this voyage, showing port scenes, mostly from South America,mostly identified, and a couple of fascinating shots - including one of a Glacier - from the Straits of Magellan. Also four cabinet photos of naval officers, and a 10 x 8 inch silver print by "A.E. La Tour, Photographer" of seven officers aboard a side-wheeler (therefore not the "Perry") labeled on the back in a contemporary hand, "US Cutter Service. Grandfather's Uncle. 1800s. An interesting lot.

Edges of wrappers slightly chipped, stamps of the Yale Medical Library on front wrappers. Very good. First Editions, Offprint Issues of these groundbreaking papers on the heritability of breast cancer in mice. Lathrop, a breeder of pet mice and other small animals in Granby, Massachusetts, began noticing that certain of her mouse strains had the tendency to develop breast tumors. She sent samples of these tumor-prone mice to several scientific researchers, including pathologist Leo Loeb, who was then on the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania. Loeb confirmed the mouse mammary tumors as cancerous, and he and Lathrop "embarked on a five-year program of joint research on the nature and transmission of the tumors in these mice. Surprisingly, although at this time women researchers were often denied credit for their work or treated like mere assistants, the Lathrop and Loeb collaboration appears to have been genuine, and Lathrop appeared as full co-author in all of the publications from the project. "The ten articles Lathrop and Loeb wrote over the period from 1913 to 1919 represent the first work establishing the connection between certain strains of mice and the inheritance of cancer. . . . Lathrop and Loeb used breeding experiments with the "silver fawn" and other Granby mice to show that the incidence of mammary tumors varied among different "families" of mice: for example, such tumors were high in the "English tan" and "sable" but low in "cream." Furthermore, they reported that ovariectomies reduced the frequency of mammary tumors, while pregnancies increased it. And finally, they observed that when members of high-tumor and low-tumor families were crossed the incidence of tumors in the new generation emulated that of the high-tumor family" (Rader, Making Mice: Standardizing Animals for American Biomedical Research, 1900-1955, pp. 42-43). During the period of his research with Lathrop, Loeb was appointed director of the Barnard Free Skin and Cancer Hospital in St. Louis, where he pursued his cancer researches and gained an international reputation. His collaboration with Lathrop ended with her death from pernicious anemia in 1918.

Datate tra il 1915 e il 1955 sono scritte da Ardenza e Caprera. Di particolare interesse la nota scritta al verso di una cart. postale fotografica, che recita: "Sono nata a Caprera il 16 febbraio 1867. Questa istantanea mi è stata fatta qui, nel mio giardino il 22 settembre 1946. Mi dispiace che non si possano vedere i pochissimi fili bianchi che ho fra i capelli che - dato la mia età - avrei voluto tutti candidi". Di seguito alcuni tra i passi più significativi dell'intero insieme, nel quale si tratta prevalentemente della collaborazione di Clelia ad alcuni scritti in onore dell'Avvocato Leti. "Ho ricevuto tempo fa il bellissimo volume di Suo Padre per il quale tanto, tanto la ringrazio. Era un'opera che ancora non conoscevo...Oggi ho ricevuto le bozze della sua monografia e mi impegno a mandarle quanto prima le bozze a cui Leti tanto tiene. E' una gioia per me poter parlare di Suo padre al quale ero legata da sentimenti di sincera e profonda amicizia. Alla nota biografica che mi riguarda leverei la parte politica, ma sarò più precisa in una prossima mia..." (Caprera 10 / 6 / 1951). Accluse quattro buste affr. con ind. autografi.

Ausstellung der Königlichen Akademie der Künste in Berlin. Ab 1879 lebte er völlig zurückgezogen in Brüssel und beschäftigt sich intensiv mit Radierung und Aquatinta. Aufenthalte in Brüssel, München, Paris und Rom. Großer Erfolg als Graphiker, u.a. mit dem Radierzyklus "Paraphrase über den Fund eines Handschuhs" (1881).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Gf. Zeppelin").

      Friedrichshafen, 13. V. 1915.. 6½ SS. auf 4 Bll. 8vo.. An den Hamburger Kaufmann und Reeder Edmund Siemers (1840-1918): "Vom Norden kommend habe ich auf der Durchreise in Stuttgart schnell mein mir von Ihnen geschenktes Bild ansehen können. Haben Sie allerherzlichsten Dank für die große mir erwiesene Freundlichkeit. Meine Frau und meine Tochter sind mit mir erstaunt über die Aehnlichkeit welche der offenbar hochstehende Künstler ohne mich zu sehen erzielen konnte. In unserem Stuttgarter Heim findet sich leider kein Platz für das Bild. Wir belassen es aber dort, um erst nach dem Krieg zu entscheiden, ob wir es hierher oder nach unserm Haus Girsberg in der Schweiz bringen. Hoffentlich ist dieser Zeitpunkt nicht mehr zu fern. Ich weiß mich mit Ihnen eins in der stolzen Freude und im Dank gegen Gott ob dem tüchtigen Verhalten unserer Krieger zu Wasser und zu Land - und in der Luft - und des ganzen deutschen Volkes. Wie traurig, daß die Notwehr uns zu Taten zwingt, die wir so gern unterlassen möchsten. Darf ich Sie bitten, Herrn Maler Geertz auch meinen Dank zu übermitteln für die Mühe, die er sich mit meinem Bilde gegeben [...]". - Bei dem Maler, der Zeppelins Portrait geschaffen hatte, dürfte es sich um Henry Ludwig Geertz (geb. 1872) gehandelt haben. - Mit winzigen Einrissen im Mittelfalz.

Silverprint. Full length portrait, looking right, hands extended, right foot extended. Size 5 1/2 x 7 7/8". Lopokova, Lydia Vasilievna [Lidiya Vasilyevna Lopukhova; married name Lydia Vasilievna Keynes, Lady Keynes] (1892-1981), ballet dancer. A wonderful and warm biography of Lopokova by Margot Fonteyn, end with the following tribute: "Lopokova was a diminutive figure with the natural air of an eager, enquiring child which caused her to hold her head tilted up towards anyone with whom she was conversing. This could give the impression that her nose, too, was up-tilted whereas, unusually, just the tip turned down, as a Picasso drawing of 1919 clearly shows. Her face was round with alert eyes under perfectly curved eyebrows; her mouth was a well-defined feature. Both her face and hands were remarkably expressive. On or off the stage her vitality, originality, humour, and youthful enthusiasm were irresistible. Gaiety and good humour prevailed. In addition she was devoid of jealousy, malice, vanity, meanness, or pretension. After her husband's death she adopted a retired way of life but lost none of her originality and charm. She died at Threeways Nursing Home, Seaford, near Tilton on 8 June 1981." Reference: Fonteyn articicle on Lydia Lopokova. Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.

        The Masses / November, 1915

      The Masses Publishing Company, New York 1915 - New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1915. The November, 1915 issue (Volume VII, Number 1, whole number 53), identified internally as October-November. Large Folio, illustrated stapled wraps, 26 pp. Just Good, due to a large chip at lower left front cover, but otherwise would be Very Good, throughout, by any periodical standard. As the very inexpensively-produced budget-of-the-heart icon The Masses was, it no doubt deserves its own grading standard, but there is none such. Some other cover peripheral chips and nicks as well, and some pages inside have corner creases. Normal occasional darkening; only very modest toning to the remarkably healthy contents. See scans. Certainly one of the most seminal socio-political American publications of the last 200 years, The Masses was a collection of ideological art, opinion and reporting - usually contributed with little or no compensation - which strongly represented socialist / marxist values, but in a larger sense was representative of labor, women's rights, and radical left issues in general as those were at that time. Famous names of the era often contributed work, but the names of the regulars are themselves all now in history books. The now-timeless publication was shut down by the U.S. Government in 1918 on the basis of postal regulations, after two intense and ideologically-charged trials. Eastman and his sister, Crystal, then started The Liberator to carry on; after The Liberator closed its doors in 1926, The New Masses, under the primary leadership of Mike Gold, carried the radical flag. The Masses, as the first, is also the rarest. Text contributors to this issue of November, 1915 included Eastman, Nina Bull; Floyd Dell; Vachel Lindsay; Marguerite Wilkinson; Louis Untermeyer; Alice Duer Miller; Howard Brubaker; Amos Pinchot; B. Boyeson; Jean Starr Untermeyer; Mary White Ovington; Jeanette Eaton; and Inez Haynes Gilmore. Art was contributed by Stuart Davis; M.A. Kempf; Arthur Young; Maurice Becker; Glenn O. Coleman; John Barber; Elizabeth Grieg; Robert Minor; and K.R. Chamberlain, with Davis executing the front cover, and Chamberlain the rear cover. Check out all of these names. An extraordinarily rare piece of American publishing and political history. l-lng2 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
