        Survey of Cripples in New York City

      Carbon copy of typed manuscript 1920 - Carbon copy of a significant work in the history of medicine and sociology. 11 x 8.5" , 141 (thin, onion-skin-type) leaves. Bound with brass punches/clasps, and bound in a heavier brown paper. The exterior binding (with a hand-made/typed title) has some significant chips, and the spine covering is nearly gone. That said, the interior is at least Very Good. From the Library of Congress, with their surplus/duplicate stamp on the back of the front cover, and with no other markins except the pencil noe regarding the source of the document, which was from Douglas C. McMurtrie, who was on the 14-person committee (and who was a famous graphic design/typographer). This copy and the published version present the same exact contents. **"This survey was inaugurated by the representatives of 41 organizations, associations, and hospitals in Greater New York engaged in work for cripples, at a conference on April 4, 1919, which was the result of the efforts of the New York Committee on After Care of Infantile Paralysis Cases. The expenses were met by contributions from certain of these agencies and a liberal gift from the Rockefeller Foundation. The responsibility for the after care of the survivors of the 1916 Infantile Paralysis epidemic in New York City has since that time been vested in the above named Committee, representing all the agencies interested in these children. This Committee had provided a system of follow-up, including necessary financing, transportation, home care, etc., which proved so beneficial in its results on the thousands of cases recorded that the committee early in 1919 resolved to learn whether all the city's needy cripples were being cared for, and if not, to what extent the need was unmet."--description from Forgotten Books website [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Photographic archive from NYC City Hospital/Welfare Island, c. 1920, showing adult and child patients and staff: a brilliance of spirit amidst difficult surroundings

      New York, 1920. Paper . Very good +. The story of City Hospitals land is ominous, now laying in ruins to the East of Manhattan and highlighted by some as an architecturally distinct ghost tour. Approximated by completed construction, dress of subjects and presence of Queensboro bridge, the photos post-date 1909. Possibly the first time many of the residents were the subject of photography, or the first photographic documentation of the island on site. Through the 19th century, then known as Blackwells island, the island housed several hospitals and a prison, built from the stone underfoot. Buildings included the New York City Lunatic Asylum, The Smallpox Hospital, later the gothic lighthouse built again by convict labor, the last prisoners leaving the island by 1935 when Rykers is erected. During the outbreak of smallpox, the island became known as Pest Island, when nurses and workers were scarce the prison population contributed to the operations of the site. Termed Welfare Island in 1921, where the poorest in need of medical care were cast, still reachable only by aquatic means. Nelly Bly went undercover as a patient in the Women's Lunatic Asylum and reported what happened in the book Ten Days in a Madhouse (1887) Charles Dickens described conditions at the Octagon, the asylum then located on the northern portion of the island, in his American Notes (1842) William Wallace Sanger oversaw police interviews of 2000 prostitutes at Blackwell's Island and wrote up the findings in The History of Prostitution (1858) Mae West, Emma Goldman and Billie Holiday served, albeit small, time on the island.

        THE TRAIL DRIVERS OF TEXAS, INTERESTING SKETCHES OF EARLY COWBOYS AND THEIR EXPERIENCES ON THE RANGE AND ON THE TRAIL DURING THE DAYS THAT TRIED MEN'S SOULS. TRUE NARRATIVES RELATED BY REAL COW-PUNCHERS AND MEN WHO FATHERED THE CATTLE INDUSTRY IN TEXAS

      Jackson Printing Co., 1920 & 1923., San Antonio - First editions. 2 volumes. Pictorial cloth, 498pp., & 496pp., frontis, portraits, advertisement. Both volumes were "published under the direction of George W. Saunders, President of the Old Trail Drivers Association. These original 2 volumes were very crudely printed and bound, making it very difficult to find copies that aren't loose and heavily worn. The first volume was exhausted before the second volume appeared; therefore it was reprinted in 1924 with some revisions and additions in an edition of 500 copies with a "second edition" imprint.In spite of the crudeness of the two volumes, they are perhaps the most important single contribution to the history of cattle driving on the Western trails."--Ramon Adams. In SIX-GUNS.Ramon Adams refers to the original edition as "rare" and the 1924 "second edition" as scarce. "This compilation is the essential starting point for any study of Texas trail driving days."--John Jenkins. "Absolutely the best source there is on the cattle trail"--Walter Prescott Webb. "This vast complication of original accounts by old trail drivers is one of the best cattle books, and the largest collection of first hand narratives of the range cattle industry."--Bill Reese. A rare and important work. The first volume has the errata slip affixed to the front pastedown sheet, else a very good, tight copy. Volume II is also a very good, tight copy.

        The Australian Victories in France in 1918

      London: Hutchinson & Co.,, 1920. Second edition. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, gilt lettered spine. Portrait frontispiece, 30 plates from photographs, 9 coloured folding maps. From the library of Admiral of the Fleet John Rushworth Jellicoe, first Earl Jellicoe (1859-1935), commander of the Grand Fleet at Jutland (31 May - 1 June 1916). A very good copy. Presentation copy of the second edition, the same year as the first, inscribed by the author "To the Viscount Jellicoe, from the Author, John Monash Lieut-General, Dec. 1924" on the front free endpaper. A remarkable association copy, linking two of the leading commanders of the Great War: Sir John Monash (1865-1931) and Viscount Jellicoe (1859-1935). Monash was appointed by Haig to lead the 1st Anzac Corps in 1918; his skilful handling of his troops and inspired tactical thinking contributed greatly to the Allied breakthrough in the final year of the war. Liddell Hart described him as having "probably... the greatest capacity for command in modern war among all who held command [in the BEF]". Jellicoe, of course, presided over the strategic British victory at Jutland in May-June 1916.

All are black and white and are approximately 3.5" x 2.5". Uncaptioned and undated, perhaps circa 1920. All but one of the images seem to be unique snapshots; one image may be commercial. Slight wear, near fine. The photos display scarification, chin and lip piercing. We can not confidently identify the tribe or tribes represented, but some of the images of body modification seem to conform closely to some of the decorative elements of the Karo tribe of Southern Ethiopia. The photographer/compiler, presumably a tourist, seemed most intent on preserving images of bare-breasted native women. .
