[California Photographica]
[Various cities in Alameda and xx counties, Ca, 1920. 163 photographs, ranging in size from 4 x 6 to 5 x 9 1/2 inches, the majority measuring 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches and corner- mounted. Oblong folio. Green mottled paper boards, gilt stamping on front board, brown cord binding. Some wear to extremities. Several leaves loose, but all present as per the contemporary pagination on the leaves. Some leaves chipped at edges. A few photos creased or bowed, but overall quite well-preserved. Very good. A substantial album documenting the history of streetcars and their crews across several cities in the eastern side of the San Francisco Bay Area. While the cable car is one of the dominant signifiers of San Francisco, this album demonstrates that entrepreneurs and city planners in the East Bay were hard at work providing mass transit systems in growing Alameda County, including the cities and towns of Oakland, Berkeley, San Leandro, Alameda, Hayward, and Piedmont. The album features not only a number of street cars and lines, but also the workers and conductors on the lines. Almost all photographs are captioned and many have notes on the verso as well, identifying the location and/or the conductors, crew, and maintenance workers featured. Though not in chronological order, some photographs are dated as early as 1881, with some of the earliest views apparently being copy prints. There are early views of horse-drawn streetcars, or "horsecars," which make way for electric-powered streetcars, and finally in the last photo, the bus (from the Key System). Additionally, there are a number … [Click Below for Full Description]

TUTTLE, Annie L.
New Haven, Connecticut, 1920. A collection of 13 notebooks filled with the manuscript writings of Annie L. Tuttle (nee Gribus), of New Haven, Connecticut dated between 1912-1920, filled with her poetry, short stories, songs, and recipes. String-tied and stapled in wrappers. Small quartos and octavos. Most between 40pp. and 122pp. Overall very good or better with wear at the extremities, scattered spots, and some page toning. They are accompanied by a copy of sheet music for "The Quinnipiac River," a song she composed the lyrics to, and was published in 1912. Tuttle (1885-1967) grew up in a family of six with Austrian immigrant parents who settled in Woodbridge, Connecticut before later moving the family to a farm in nearby Bethany. In one notebook she describes her life as the shy but precocious sister to three brothers, painting her face black with axle grease after seeing an African-American man for the first time, and later burying a man in the snow after finding him passed out one morning. It appears she may have left school early and there is some evidence in her writing of some clumsy spelling and strange phrasing. She describes a happy childhood, playing with siblings and dreaming up imaginary games with friends, until the sudden death of her favorite younger brother forced her to grow up. She married Willard W. Tuttle in 1906 at age 21. The notebooks, which are numbered 1-13, contain about 1,000 manuscript pages of poetry, short stories, and receipts, plus a 34-page memoir. Many of the pieces have notations that record when and to what periodical she submitted her w … [Click Below for Full Description]

[MANUSCRIPT - MYCOLOGY].
[French mycology manuscript]. [France, 1920?]. 34 parts. 8vo. With each described species illustrated in watercolour and pencil and on nearly all occasions also illustrating details and other stages of development. Each part sewn as a single quire without title-page, covered in a modern transparent paper. Unpublished, extensively illustrated taxonomic mycology manuscript covering 67 numbered genera of fungi found in France, each extensively described and with illustrations of numerous species (also numbered) of the relevant genus. The manuscript, made by an anonymous but evidently very knowledgeable author, covers species collected in France from 1874 to 1920. The information given for each species includes the scientific name, the common French name, a statement concerning its rarity, a detailed physical description and sometimes some comments on different varieties, the season and place in which it is more likely to be found, and the edibility, smell and taste. The descriptions are also often accompanied by a footnote on where and when the particular species was found.Although the text is nearly complete, some unfinished drawings and texts seem to suggest the author left the manuscript not quite finished. This end would likely be in 1920, the latest year reported for the discovery of a species. Although the species were collected over several decades, the manuscript appears to have been produced in a short period of time, without any major changes in style. A few occasional minor stains and thumbing, otherwise in very good condition.

1920. A treasure trove of 78 glass advertising slides for use in a Petersburg movie theater in the 1920's or 1930's. These would have been flashed up on the screen before and after the movie, and perhaps during the movie when the reels were being changed. They are rather crudely handpainted and lettered, adding to their local charms. "Tony's" on Sycamore Street "Known coast to coast for our home cooked and delicious meals"; "Bob White Ice Cream"; "Mann's Bread Served Exclusively at our Eating Booth" -- these are but a few of the many Petersburg businesses whose flickering names often with a painted image appeared on a Petersburg movie screen.

Contains 270 black and white gelatin silver or sepia toned photographs measuring between 3.5" x 2.5" and 5" x 3.5" with some captions. Pages detached but present with a crease in the front board thus a very good album with fine photographs. A photo album of four families during their camping trips together in the early 1920s. The families are the Bradfords, Daggetts, Spinachs, and Stanffers. The photo album features their camping trips to different lakes, beaches, and cabins in the woods. One of the pictures is labeled "Flinton Creek 1922" next to a page that says "The 4 Fishermen" with each of the fathers in the photo. Many of the photographs are of the men fishing together, smiling and taking pictures with the fish they've caught. In one photograph a small child is holding a string of fish in his hands. These photos sometimes include the women swimming in the lakes in their bathing suits. Several photos show action shots of the men and women jumping mid-air into the lake off a small dock. The pictures are energetic and full of smiles; one even has a man in a woman's bathing suit. Other photos include pictures of a young boy on the dock with a double exposure of lake water, city landscape photographs from rooftops, family pictures over a large set of waterfalls, and a couple pictures of full black adolescent wolves in a caged enclosure.

[Diary] Katharine Shepard
Newberryport, MA, 1920. Standard Daily Journal in original blue cloth binding with title to front board. Containing 365 pages of daily entries plus 56 additional pages of notes, largely monthly expense accounts and recipes to be made. Documenting the life of Massachusetts nurse and women's club leader Katharine Shepard, this densely packed diary gives insight into the activities, ideas, and feelings of an active woman who, along with the female population of the U.S., had just obtained the right to vote.Everything about the present diary shows that Katharine was an active, intelligent, ambitious, and civically engaged individual. 45 years old at the time of this journal, she suffers no fools at work or in her clubs; and she values the balance she has accomplished between her intense work and activist commitments and self-care. Both front and rear pastedowns handle the overload of her notes on accounts, contacts, and recipes. Internally, she diligently documents all 365 days of her year. She discusses the nursing lesson plans, classes, students, and lectures she gives; she records and reflects on speaking appointments at the Roxbury Women's Club, Amherst College, Girls' City Club, and the Cambridge Women's Club; she keeps track of various bills and legislation she is in support of or wants to assist in banning in her state. As the presidential election nears, as expected, she has educated herself, chosen a side, and thrown her weight behind her candidate, attending a Republican rally in October and noting on November 2 that she has voted for the first time.In the midst of … [Click Below for Full Description]

[PAINTING]. ROUSSEAU, Henri-Émilien.
[Bedouin falconer].[Morocco, 1920s]. Oil on wooden panel (21 x 16 cm), signed at the lower left "Henri Rousseau". Contemporary gilded wooden frame (33 x 28 cm). Colourful panel painting by the leading orientalist painter Henri-Émilien Rousseau of a mounted Bedouin falconer, one of Rousseau's favourite subjects. While the sport of falconry was an important status symbol in the Middle East and Europe generally, for the Bedouins it was a means of survival.Rousseau (1875-1933) was a Cairo-born French painter who divided his childhood between North Africa and France, where he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts under the great Orientalist painter, Jean-Léon Gérôme. He broke from the style of his master, however, and started to paint in a more impressionistic style. Between 1920 and 1930 he travelled extensively through the Rif and Atlas mountains of Morocco, where he befriended the chiefs of several nomad tribes. It was probably here that Rousseau fell under the spell of the Bedouin horsemen, which came to characterize his compositions. In 1927 more than 80 of his works from this period were displayed at the gallery of the influential Parisian art dealer Georges Petit. This was followed by an exhibition at the Exposition Universelle of 1931.The panel is cracked in the length, leading to a 4 cm crack in the paint to the right of the rider's head, a 1 cm crack below the horse's left hind hoof, and a 7 cm crack from the top left to the horse's head, but these cracks are only noticeable on close inspection and no paint has been lost. Some minor craquelure in the dark red patch conne … [Click Below for Full Description]

1920. Photograph album of Reverend John B. Panfil and his sister Elsie Panfil, containing just over 500 original photographs taken during their extensive travels in 1920s Iraq and other parts of the Middle East. The pair were based in Mosul, but visited many small and remote settlements populated by Assyrian Christians and ethnic-minority Yazidis. Some of these places were seldom seen by westerners, and the Panfils' images-with captions identifying individuals and families by name-provide rare visual documentation of the people who lived there. Rev. Panfil was sent to Iraq as part of an Episcopal mission aimed at supporting and strengthening the ancient Assyrian Church of the East. In a letter written shortly after his arrival in Mosul, he wrote:: "I am working presently among the Assyrians; their church is the eldest one in Christendom. They have lost their country during the war and were massacred by the Turks and Kurds and are in need of the American help in order to exist. We are trying to revive their old church, their customs and their language." In the course of this work, Panfil traveled to meet with local church leaders, with whom he could work to build schools that would maintain Assyrian culture and traditions, educate young men for the priesthood, and provide humanitarian assistance when possible. He and Elsie (who seems to have been his constant companion) visited the Assyrian village of Bebadi (Dohuk Province) and nearby Amadia fortress; the Yazidi temple at Lalish; Dair Mar Elia (Saint Elijah's Monastery, believed to be the oldest Christian monastery in Ira … [Click Below for Full Description]
