The 35th Division was sent to France in May 1918. On May 2, 1918, Truman was promoted to Captain. The 35th Division participated in the Meuse-Argonne, Alsace, and Lorraine Campaigns. The Division suffered a total of 1,018 killed and 6,278 wounded in action during its World War I service. As President, Truman missed only the 1951 annual reunion of the 35th Division. He signed this envelope at a later date. Ink franks of Truman are exceedingly rare. This is an excellent substitute.

        Indian Utensils and Arms [Tab. 21]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by A. Zschokke and Hürlimann after Bodmer. 15 1/4 x 20 3/8 inches. 19 5/16 x 25 1/2 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) An important ethnographical record centering on Bodmer's careful drawing of a buffalo robe decorated by the Mandan Chief Mató-Tópe with a depiction of several of his exploits including a hand-to-hand battle with a Cheyenne Chief (the original was purchased by Prince Maximilian and is now in the Linden-Museum in Stuttgart, Germany). Surrounding the robe are various other objects, including a pipe that had belonged to Dipäuch, a respected elder of the Mandan Tribe, as well as a snow-shoe, a fashioned ermine skin and a knife in a bead-fringed scabbard.Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Design for a portfolio

      Berlin n.d.. [Berlin, n.d.].. Original composition in red gouache, black ink and gold metallic paint, on textured ochre leatherette, mounted on a red buckram slipcase, with inserted red buckram chemise and inner sleeve of white Bütten paper, reinforced with loose panels of cardboard. Painted panel: 368 x 275 mm. (ca. 14 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches). Slipcase: 423 x 325 mm. (ca. 16 5/8 x 12 3/4 inches). This large and majestically impressive handmade portfolio represents a variation of Buchholz’s painted wooden relief, “Roter Kreis im Goldkreis,” of 1922, of which Ingrid Weisenmayer has commented “Der Dreiklang der Farben Schwarz, Gold und Rot steigert die Wirkung der einzelnen Farben noch zusätzlich. Es ist charakteristisch, dass Buchholz, der sich so vehement von jeglicher Kunsttradition distanzieren wollte, auf mittelalterliche Traditionen zurückgreift, und diese in einen modernen Kontext stellt” (Weisenmayer, in Gassen/Mengden). Comparison might equally be made with another painted panel of 1923, Buchholz’s “Neue Tafel Nr. 70.” These and similar motifs were reprised by the artist many times, through late in his career. Slight rippling of the panel at foot; a little light rubbing, otherwise in fine, bright condition.

        Ptihn-Tak-Ochatä. Dance of the Mandan Women [Vig. 28]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Ch. Geoffroy after Bodmer. 9 1/2 x 12 3/4 inches. 12 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.1 The dance of the women of the Mandan White Buffalo Cow Society was performed for the factor and his guests at Fort Clark on 25 December 1833. Bodmer and Prince Maximilian overwintered at Fort Clark, between the Knife and Heart Rivers in the territory of the Mandans and the Hidatsas, and made full use of their time to record in detail the life, history and beliefs of the Indian Tribes around them. Both the Mandans and the Hidatsas were divided into a series of age-graded societies into which a person successively purchased membership as he or she got older. The White Buffalo Cow Society was one of four such amongst the women of the Mandan, and they had special hats made of rectangular pieces of the rare and sacred white buffalo hide. These were wrapped around the head and laced at the back with a plume of owl or at the front with raven feathers. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians.

        Ontledingen en Ontdekkingen... Brieven [Brieven seu Werken].Leyden, Delft: Boutesteyn, Krooneveld, Beman, 1684-1718. First editions, first issue.

      Extremely rare fully complete set with all 100 engraved plates and all the letters in their first state; we know of just one other similar copy - the Dobell/Honeyman copy. Dobell writes in his bibliography of Leeuwenhoek (1922) that his set was the only 'perfect' copy he had ever seen. The Norman and Horblit copies were highly incomplete and the Friedman set consisted of mixed issues. Dobell 20; Medicine's 10 Greatest Discoveries 3; Grolier/Horblit 65; Norman 1301-15.<br/><br/> "Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, who lacked formal university training in the sciences, philosophy, or languages, surely ranks among the greatest autodidacts in the history of science and medicine. Born into a comfortable middle-class Dutch family, he passed his long life almost entirely in Delft. There he had two careers: the first as a civil servant, the second as a microscopist of international renown... Although a man of limited theoretical skills, he was a consummately acute observer, and for fifty years he patiently and painstakingly documented the hidden realms of nature in a way no one had done before him. A skilled lens grinder, Leeuwenhoek produced a total of about 550 lenses during his lifetime, perfecting the microscope sufficiently to enable him to make unprecedented observations of sub-visible life. Although his ignorance of foreign languages forced him to rely on Dutch authors and Dutch translations of standard scientific works, he was aided and encouraged in his work by friends such as Constantin Huygens and Reinier de Graaf. One beneficial consequence of his relative isolation from the main currents of contemporary scientific scholarship was that "he was thus able to work with full independence and to make a sharp distinction between the empiricism and speculation that marked the sometimes chaotic world of seventeenth-century science. Leeuwenhoek apparently regarded speculation as an academic occupation... He usually set, out his observations fully, as facts, and only then in a separate section, allowed himself to wonder what those facts might mean.<br/><br/> "While his hundreds of observations included inorganic as well as organic structures, Leeuwenhoek's major contributions were in the field of microbiology: Early in his career as a scientist, he observed what he described as animalcules or 'little animals' [dierkens] in water, and from then on he described in considerable detail a spectrum of microorganisms never before detected, including bacteria, protozoa, and rotifers. He devised for his observations a system of micrometry, utilizing as standards a grain of coarse sand, a hair from his beard, and two micro-organisms. One of Leeuwenhoek's lifelong concerns and the area of his work that most caught the attention of his contemporaries, was the study of sexual reproduction. His work includes the first full descriptions of spermatozoa, which he considered to be 'little men,' the origin of all new animal life, regarding the egg as primarily a source of nutrients (in opposition to Harvey, who took the contrary view). He also investigated the development of other mammals as well that of birds, fish, reptiles and mollusks, and the cumulative effect of his work was to provide evidence against the then prevalent theory of spontaneous generation. He independently discovered and correctly identified blood corpuscles, and, attempting to draw an analogy between animal and plant systems, minutely analyzed the systems of nutrient transport in plants. Although he developed no general theory, Leeuwenhoek's work raised crucial questions and helped establish the microscope as an indispensable tool for medical and biological research. <br/><br/> "Leeuwenhoek's scientific communications consisted exclusively of letters to fellow scientists, the majority addressed to the Royal Society in London. 165 were published, in two chronological sequences, numbered 28-146 and I-XLIV (letters 1-27 were not published separately, although abstracts appeared in the Philosophical transactions). 120 letters were abstracted in English or Latin in volumes VIII-XXXII of the Transactions (1673-1723, see lot 716)." (Norman). "Leeuwenhoek himself did not publish his work until 1684, when he brought out some of his letters in Dutch [starting with letters 32 and 33]; from 1685 onward he also published Latin translations [not his own, as he had no knowledge of Latin]. He initially edited, reprinted, and reissued some of his letters separately or in groups of two or three, a practice that has resulted in some bibliograpical confusion. From 1687 he adopted a more systematic course of publication..."

        Mehkskeme-Sukahs. Blackfoot-chief. Tátsicki Stomick. Piëkann Chief [Tab. 45]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Aquatint engraving by Allais after Bodmer, issue without artist or engraver's names, or imprint lines for France or Germany. Tears to lower and right margins, surface soiling to outer left margin, not affecting plate area. 13 5/8 x 17 3/4 inches. 17 5/8 x 24 3/4 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A fine half-length double portrait by Bodmer of two Blackfoot chiefs: Prince Maximilian referred to Mehkskéhme-Sukáhs [`Iron Shirt'] as the most distinguished of the several chiefs who gathered to welcome the arrival of the keelboat Flora at Fort McKenzie on 9 August 1833. At the time he was wearing a lace-trimmed scarlet uniform obtained from the British traders as a gift. He posed for this portrait on August 11th wearing a hide shirt decorated with otter fur, beadwork and metal trade buttons. In his hair are feathers, a bear claw and what appears to be a small ermine with blue beads for eyes. Tátsicki-Stomíck [`Middle Bull'] was probably the principal chief of the Piegan Blackfoot. He was a serious thoughtful man who had sought to maintain an amicable trading relationship between his people and the various companies competing for hides and pelts. Maximilian had particularly admired a shirt of his made from the skin of a bighorn sheep, richly ornamented with ermine, feathers and tufts of hair, and Maximilian lamented that for the present portrait he wore a much simpler shirt decorated with simple beadwork. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

Inscribed by the author with pencil on the title: "Till Emma från Ville". The second and decidedly the scarcest of Moberg's books. The association to Emma is unknown. There are pen markings on 3 pages at scenes of a romantic character, which might suggest that she was an early girlfriend

        Herode [Salome: drame en un acte]

      Paris, c. 1922. Original illustration in red and black ink and pencil on paper. 11 7/8 by 9 1/2 in. This drawing first appeared in Fifty Drawings by Alastair, published by Knopf in 1925, and a similar version was used in the Paris edition of Wilde's text published the same year. Beardsley's popularity and sudden death created opportunities for other artists of the Decadent movement, such as Alastair and Erté. This drawing exhibits the understated menace of Beardsley, but with an eye toward texture. The detail in Herod's elaborate robe, and the plant and vase to his left exhibit a distinctly Asian aesthetic. Some glue residue on verso, else a very fine drawing by one of the most popular book illustrators of the first half of the twentieth century.
