        The Story of Little Black Sambo

      Henry Altemus, Philadelphia 1918 - A VERY EARLY EDITION IN ITS ORIGINAL PICTORIAL DUSTJACKET(!!). Published by Henry Altemus of Philadelphia as part of its "Wee Books for Wee Folks" series, the publication date can be pinned down conclusively between 1918-1921 but not more specifically than that. Dustwrappers earlier than this on editions of "Little Black Sambo" rarely appear. As it stands, this is a wonderful and colorful jacket design. The front panel of the dustjacket--which mirrors the cover of the book itself-- has a hand-colored image of "Sambo" under an umbrella with a black and white jungle relief behind him. The back panel lists other titles by Altemus in the "Wee Books for Wee Folks" series. Both the book and the jacket have held up nicely, given their age. A solid VG copy in bright boards and in a VG/VG- dustjacket with light chipping along the top and bottom edges of the covers and light chipping at the spine extremities. One dime-sized chip as well to the top edge of the front panel, affecting the word "Little" in the title. The dustjacket, though, fragile as it is, is 90-95% intact. Light foxing as well to endpapers and small former owner inscription to flyleaf. All plates and pages of text have held up nicely and are clean and bright. 64mo, 63 pgs. A truly scarce item in its original dustjacket. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        La Petite Cady

      Paris - La Renaissance du Livre, 1918. Paris - La Renaissance du Livre, 1918 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A romantic novel from French writer Louise-Hortense Grille de Rougeul. The pen name Camille Pert was the gender-ambivalent pseudonym of one Louise-Hortense Grille de Rougeul. For all its romantic excess, her literary output reveals an intense investment in the values of family life as the First World War approached. Cady is a cautionary figure used to warn Pert's readers against the supposed selfishness of modern mothers. La Petite Cady sets out the terms of an unfortunate upbringing against which her adult life is a mere reaction. She is neglected by a mother who is caught up in the public whirl of her 'career' as a politician's wife and allows her ne'er-do-well servants to raise her daughter abusively. Free to develop at an unseemly pace, she flirts with her father's firends and mixes with undesirables such as the demi-mondaine, Paulette, and her son, Georges. (After Intimacy: The Culture of Divorce in the West Since 1789)Condition: In a half-crushed-morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally smart, with some light rubbing and some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages browned but generally clean, with just a few scattered spots. Overall: VERY GOOD..

Two letters of quote, in brackets above, not visible. The quote uses words from Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. At the lower left edge: ì1918 Chas. Gustine Chicago.î This poster, used as a recruitment poster, pays tribute to the contributions that African Americans were making during the World War. It specifically references the success of the 369th Infantry Regiment, known as the Harlem Hellfighters, an all-black unit from New York and the first Allied soldiers to engage the Germans. The poster honors this accomplishment with the inscription ìColored Men / The First Americans / Who Planted Our Flag / on the / Firing Lineî at the left. The unit served a total of 191 days in combat, more than any other company. Corporal Henry Johnson and Private Needham Roberts were the first Americans to receive the Croix de Guerre, awarded by the French in recognition of heroism during wartime. They were 2 of 171 members of the 369th Infantry to receive the award. The musicians in this unit, including James Reese Europe and Noble Sissle, were credited with introducing European audiences to ragtime and jazz. In February and March 1918, Europe and his military band travelled over 2,000 miles in France, performing for British, French and American military audiences as well as French civilians. After being excluded from the regular parade of troops leaving New York City when they left for France, soldiers of the 369th Infantry were given a hero's welcome when they returned home on February 2, 1919. During World War I, 200,000 African American served in combat, with a total of 380,000 serving in the overall war effort. One of these posters is in the collection of the Library of Congress in the Prints and Photographs Division. Another sold at Swann Galleries March 27, 2014 ìPrinted & Manuscript African Americanaî auction on March 27, 2014, for $2,750.

In search of action O'Brien crossed the border into Canada and signed up with the Royal Flying Corps, sailing to Britain in early 1917 for training. In July 1917 he was posted to 66 Squadron in France, and within a month he had been shot down and captured having crashed behind German lines. After his initial interrogation he was sent to the officers' camp at Courtrai, before being transferred to a camp in Germany via Ghent, but en route he managed to escape from a moving train. Making his way through Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium and Holland he returned to England in November 1917, covering the 320 miles in around two and half months. He was gazetted for the Military Cross, and had an interview with the King at Buckingham Palace before returning to America where this book was published early in 1918, with O'Brien undertaking a promotional tour in support of it. Loosely inserted newslipping in this copy promotes two nights at Carnegie Hall; "The Wildest Tales of Fiction, Fable and Fancy Outdone in Real Life".

His historical works include biographies of George Washington, Oliver Goldsmith and Muhammad, and several histories of 15th-century Spain dealing with subjects such as Christopher Columbus, the Moors, and the Alhambra. Irving also served as the U. S. minister to Spain from 1842 to 1846. He made his literary debut in 1802 with a series of observational letters to the Morning Chronicle, written under the pseudonym Jonathan Oldstyle. After moving to England for the family business in 1815, he achieved international fame with the publication of The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. in 1819. He continued to publish regularlyand almost always successfullythroughout his life. Irving, along with James Fenimore Cooper, was among the first American writers to earn acclaim in Europe, and Irving encouraged American authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Edgar Allan Poe. Irving was also admired by some European writers, including Sir Walter Scott, Lord Byron, Thomas Campbell, Francis Jeffrey, and Charles Dickens. As America's first genuine internationally best-selling author, Irving advocated for writing as a legitimate profession, and argued for stronger laws to protect American writers from copyright infringement.

An illustrated set of Rabelais novelswith a black and white plate to frontispiece of each volume and numerous woodcut illustrations throughout by W. Heath Robinson, who was an English cartoonist and illustrator, best known for drawings of eccentric machines. In two volumes complete. Franois Rabelais (c. 1494- 9 April 1553) was a major French Renaissance writer, doctor, Renaissance humanist, monk and Greek scholar. He has historically been regarded as a writer of fantasy, satire, the grotesque, bawdy jokes and songs. His best known work is Gargantua and Pantagruel. The Life of Gargantua and of Pantagruel is a connected series of five novels written in the 16th century by Franois Rabelais. It is the story of two giants, a father (Gargantua) and his son (Pantagruel) and their adventures, written in an amusing, extravagant, satirical vein. The text features much crudity, scatological humour, and violence. Lists of explicit or vulgar insults fill several chapters. The censors of the Sorbonne stigmatised it as obscene, and in a social climate of increasing religious oppression, it was dealt with with suspicion, and contemporaries avoided mentioning itWith letters written by Francis Rabelais M.

        Autograph letter signed, dated London, August 2, 1819, to his friend and editor Henry Brevoort

      Some minor damp stains; in very good condition.. See the Letters of Washington Irving to Henry Brevoort, (New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1918) page 317, which only partially transcribes the letter. Two pages, 8.5 x 7.5 inch plain stationery, approximately 270 words. With the original single sheet folded to make an envelope with Irving's return address and Brevoort?s New York address. A fine example of one of the many recorded letters from Washington Irving to his lifelong friend, Henry Brevoort, a correspondence which began in 1808 and lasted until the early 1840s. Brevoort played an important role in the editing and publication of the Sketch Book, which began with a letter Irving wrote to Brevoort from London in March 1819, asking him to be his agent in New York regarding the publication of his new series of articles. Soon after Irving began sending installments, via Brevoort, for the printer and publisher. The first part was published in May, 1819, and by the time of this letter, four months later, Irving had just sent along the fourth part. He comments on the slow pace of getting the next part completed, and part five was indeed not published until December 1819. The final two parts appeared in February and August of 1820. The only published version of this letter we located (noted above) inaccurately transcribes a few words (Irving's holograph is difficult) and does not include the final four sentences. "My dear Brevoort / I forward Sketch Book No. 4 to my / brother E. Irving. I find in the printer's copy of no. 1 / three or four inaccuracies in language in addition to those / already pointed out, but I have not the number by me / to correct them. These errors will take place whenever / an author has not the advantage of correcting the proofs / where he sees his sentences fairly printed / and brought out in a final compass under his eye. I wish / you would keep an eye to see that grammatical inaccuracies do not occur. I often alter / my sentences after they are written out, which is apt / to make these errors. I send the present number with reluctance for / it has grown exceeding stale with me, part of it / laid out by me during a time that I was out of spirits and could not compleat it. So much time has elapsed how- / ever that I dare not delay any longer. I shall / endeavor to get up another number immediately having / had much of the material prepared. Should you at any time / think any article is insufficient as to be likely to / affect the reputation of the work you may use your / discretion in omitting it, & delaying the number / until the arrival of my next number, out of which / you can take an article to supply the deficiency. / I write in great haste, and am as ever / Affectionately yours / W. I.
